With ninety counties of the 120 in Kentucky report ed, indications point toward a plurality of more than 100,000 for Gov. Wilson in the Presidential election, while the Dem ocrats have returned nine Democratic Congressmen. In the Tenth district in complete returns show that John W. Iaugley, Republican, has a good lead over his Progressive opponent. In the Eleventh district the fight be tween Caleb" Powers for re-election and II. II. Seavy, Progressive is close, with the Hull Moose candidate claiming vic tory. The showing made by the Progressive party surprised the Democratic and Re publican leaders all over Kentucky. In the Fifth district it was not until after the final returns were in that it was found that Swager Sherley, Demo crat, had received a narrow plurality of 1,200 votes over II. I. Pox. The Fifth district approximately gives Wilson 34,369, Roosevelt 23,914,. Taft 3,554. For Congress, Swager Sherley 24,693; Ashcraft, Republican, 3,485; for Progressive, 23,477.

Florida was uncertain grounds as to the extent of Wilson's victory, but not as to tho fact of it. It was estimated that the ontirc Democratic ticket won by a majority of 20,000. With the annexing of JRhodo Island to Wil son's column, by later returns, and with tho close ness in New Hampshire, it seemed probablo that Now England entire, with tho exception of Ver mont, had gone for Wilson. Massachusetts For Wilson. For tho Hrst time in its history, Massachu setts will givo its electoral vote to a Democrat. Both Massachusetts htid New York elected Demo cratic Governors, Sulzer in Now York, and Foss in Massachusetts. By midnight both President Taft and Col. Roosevelt had conceded Gov. Wilson's election. Early in the night there seemed small reason to doubt that Wilson would carry, besides the "Solid South," Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Now York, West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Now Jersey and New Mexico, and later returns clinched the Democratic victory in theso States.
