OF VOTES

PEOPLE OF THE UNITED
STATES.

OF WHOM THE MAJORITY
HAS CHOSEN
TO RULE IN STATE AND NATION I
FOR THE COMING
FOUR YEARS.
(By Publishers' Press.)
NEW YORK, Nov. S.?The American
people are to-day exercising their )
suffrage rights and iD the several s
^States and Territories are voting for c
a President and Vice President. In c
twenty-seven States gubernatorial v
elections are being lield. while in I
othe_rs legislatures are being elect ed
which will choose United States
Senators. To-day marks the climax,
. if it can be said to have a climax, of c
the most unique and apathetic Presi- o
denlial campaign held in many years.
The Democratic Presidential standard-bearers
are Judge Alton Brooks
Parker, of New York, and Henry Gas- e
5 saway Davis, of West Virginia, and tl
the Republican ticket is President e
"Theodore Roosevelt, of New York, ci
and Charles Warren Fairbanks, of In- 11
diana. President Roosevelt remain- T
ed quietly at home during the cam- tl
paign, but kept in close touch with V
the canvass. Judge Parker made frc
qnent visits to New York, where he
consulted with the leaders at his hotel.
At all times the strictest secrecy a
-was observed, and the actual news ft
that escaped might have been told a1
an a line. Judge Parker always de- w
dined to he interviewed. The two
national committees worked silently ai
ticket, and Thomas Taggart as chairman
of the Democratic National Committee,
the flow of political currents j
are most confusing. Jolm W. Kern we
is running on the Democratic State lag
ticket, and his opponent is J. Frank cor
Hawley. The gubernatorial fight in tioi
New Jersey is a hot one, and has urn
been carried on between George C. He
Black, the Democratic nominee for piu
governor, and Edward C. Stokes, the
Republican candidate.
The gubernatorial fight in New j
York has been made on the admin- A (
Istration ot Governor Odell. Frank th
W. Higgins is the Republican candi- cj|,
date for governor, and Judge D. Cady tfo]
Herrick is his opponent on the Democratic
ticket. Governor Odell ad- jt
mits that Higgins will run thirty to st[|
forty thousand behind the National CQr
ticket, and the Democrats have made
Judge Herrick a favorite in the betting
at two to one. President Roose- c
velt's supporters are laying two to
one and eight to five that he will j
carry the State. clx
In West'Virginia there has been a
warm canvass, and for the last ton q
days Senator Scott has been making
a big fight for both National and
State tickets and the Legislature.
Henry G, Davis, the Democratic N
Vice Presidential nominee. is ex- bro
pected to draw heavily from the Re- ceei
publican ranks, because of State and wer
-local pride in having a native son on nl'n
tie Presidential ticket. The next tion
Legislature will chose a successor to T',ie
Senator Scott. sal

e Democrats are better supplied
Ith money than the Republicans and
ery person who has the semblance
a voter will be dragged to the polls,
le fight for the State ticket is one c
deadly bitterness and thousands of c
liars are being used. West Virginia
liticians of both sides are not afflict- i
with conscientious scruples and it (
feared that the election in many i

THE SITUATION
IN NEW YORK
BOTH SIDES CLAIM THE STATE
BUT THE BETTING FAVORS
MR. ROOSEVELT.
(By Publishers' Press.)
NTBW YORK, Nov. S.?Both sides
claim the State this morning, the
Republicans apparently with the
most confidence. To the unbiased
observer it looks as if the State
would be close, with the result in
doubt. The betting, which is two to
one in favor of Roosevelt and two to
one in favor of Herrick, would seem :
much as it indicates that men who
have a financial interest in the result
think that the Republican National 1
ticket will also prove successful. 1
Governor Odell has admitted that 1
the Republican State ticket will rim 1
30 to 40,000 behind the National ticket,
and this, probably accounts for the
confidence of the Herrick men.
The legislative and Congressional
tickets fn Greater New York, it is ^
expected, will show little change. The
ast odds laid on to-day's election by
he betters follows:
General result, five to one on Roose,-eit.
New York, two to one on Herrick.
Best bet recorded in New York, n
150,000 to SS.OOO. v
Estimated amount wagered in this ;
:ity, $3,000,000.
