Looks Like Denver Will Give Majority
That Will Poll Shafroth Through- •
Stephen Runs Well Over State.
Denver, Colo, Nov. 9.(2:30 i>. m.) —
Special to the Dally Record.) Incom
plete returns from the 59 counties in
Colorado outside of Denver, show
John F. Shafroth and J. B. Stephen to
be running nearly even and th6 re
sults will be decided by the vote of
Denver oounty. Denver is claimed by
the Democrats by 4.000 or 5,000.
Ail of the Democratic state candi
dates are running well up with the
head of the ticket
The Republicans claim the election

attorney general. Mrs. Wlxon for
state superintendent and Miss Wol

have been carried with the possible j
exception of that providing for the
funding of state warrants. The result
In this case Is still in doubt. It Is
not expected that the result will be
known before night snd perhaps not
even then. because of the great
amount of "scratched** tickets.
Weld county proved the surprise of
the state, normally the Republican
stronghold snd second only to El
Paso county. The Indications arc
this noon that the Democrats have al
most split even with the Republican
candidates. Ten precincts are still
missing but there sre considered
strong Republican, but Shafroth snd
the other Democrats are now in the
lead snd the Republican plurality will
fall thousands below the figure of two
years ago. even If the precincts not
yet beard from returned the figures
New York. Nov. 9. The election
returns indicate that John A. Dtx.
Democrat, has l**en elected govern
or of New York, over Henry l*. Stim
eon. Republican, by between 55.000
and 65.000 plurality
These figures may be changed
slightly by returns from upstate rur
al districts. New York city gives Dtx
a plurality of at least 106,000. which
more than offsets the greatly reduc
ed plurality of the Republicans up
state. Two years ago the greatei
city gave Chanler. for governor, leas
than 60.000 plurality.
Below Mr. Dlx on the ticket the re
suit is uncertain, although tending
toward Democratic success. Thomas
(Tonway. the Democratic candidate
for lleutennnt governor, appears to
be running slightly behind Dtx.
The complexion of the legislature
which will select a surceasor to
Chauncey M. Depow will be settled
only by more complete returns, al

Republicans will have n working ma

Special to the Dally Record)—Occas
ional returns today only emphasise
the completeneas of tbe Democratic
victory In Now York.
For the first time since 1894 the
Democrats of all the state depart
ments will be in control. They have
reversed from the Republican joint
majority of sixty in the state legisla
ture to a Democratic majority of 25,
and have made a clear gain of ten
congressmen. The change in the leg
islature will Insure a Democratic sen
ator to succeed Chauncey M. DePew
The new congressional delegation
will have 22 Democrats and 15 Repub

12 Democrats In the present congress.
John A. Dix’s plurality for govern

that his total vote was ntjput 26.000
below the vote of Chanler. the de
feated Democratic candidate for gov
ernor in 1908. Btlmßon’a vote, how
ever. will approximate 100.000 under
that cast for Hughes.
Aside from Dlx, the eutire Demo

Wilkin, Walker, Smith, Kelso And Esser
Are Elected. The Other Offices
Are Still In Doubt.
From Wednesday's Daily.
As the Record goes to press at 3
o’clock this afternoon the returns
from only twenty-seven of the county
precincts are in.
From these returns it is not poss
ible to predict who will be elected to
several of the county offices. But
three county candidates are certain
of their election.
Prof. Henry E. Smith will be elect
ed clerk by a majority running from
600 to 800. At present with twenty
seven precincts in Smith’s, majority
is 941. This may be cut down and it
may not he. The precincts to hear
from are Democratic, but Mr. Smith
seems to run better in Democratic
precincts then he does even in Re
publican districts.
Sanford K. Kelso is elected coun
ty commissioner without doubt. He
will have a substantial plurality.
Joe Esser is probably elected sher
iff by a safe plurality.
On no other county office can any
one safely claim an election yet.
On returns now in, Harry Maddox
is 77 ahead.
On the same returns Mrs. Merriam
is 47 ahead.
For assessor Robert Ramsey lias
137 plurality on votes now counted.
The ten Fremont county precincts
not in. two years ago gave on the
vote for regent as follows. Demo
cratic, 924; Republican, 830.
Alfred Durfee is probably elected
Gilbert A. Walker of Buena Vista
is no donbt elected float representa
tive over Billy Fay.
For District Judge. Charles A. Wil
kin is unquestionably elected over
Judge Lee Champion. This is con
ceded by Judge Champion's friends.
Mr Wilkin will have a majority of
over 100 in Park county. Mr. Cham

The elections in Canon City and
Fremont county yesterday passed off
very quietly in all respects. While
the rote was not as large as is the
case in a presidential year. It was a
very good one and shows a whole
some interest on the part of people
generally in public affairs.
The candidates and their friends of
both political parties were active and
made an endeavor to get out the en
tire vote, and. In some precincts al
most succeeded in doing so. In Can
on City, Florence and some other
places carriages were furnished by
the committees having charge of the
campaign for the use of those who
were unable, or disinclined, to walk
to the polls, but residents of the rur
al precincts had to provide their own
means of conveyance to the voting
places which, in some instances, were
located several miles away.
The complete returns from none of
the precincts in the county were to
be had until after midnight, and
several of the precincts including
some in Canon City and Florence are
not in yet.
The slowness with which the bal
lots were counted, which, however,
was unavoidable on account of the
“•erateberi’* tickets, occasioned some
impatience on the part of the public
at large, but it was not of a carp
ing critical kind and was withdrawn
when the difficulties and troubles of
the judges and the clerks of the elec
tion became known. The Daily Rec

est and fullest information possible
in relation to the election in county,
