There ' was more straight Democratic tickets than Republican and as these • were counted first lola seemed to have given the Democratic ticket a three to one -victory. The scratched ballot ' however steadily swelled the RepuLli- i can vote and as the cpunt was not : the lead changed. Thft: VtHvmbtrfdt vote decided the .McClain-Hamra contest. The Foust-Apt race was uiic-r- lain to the last.

On .the returns received up to. 3:30 this aftern <Min from .vtaii -s wlnrt: the re-sult is reasonably certain.

Up to that hour Taft had received but twelve votes, those of Vermont. Idaho and I'tah Wilson not only carried his own state by a large majority but !.lso the states of hi.-- oiponi-nt.-j. the state of his running mate. Indiana, and the stall' of Roosevelt's running mate. California. Karly returns from various cities in Kaiisa^ led to the claim that Roosevelt had carried this state by a large i>i«r«Uity l..;iter returns, however, coming from the country counties, have changed these estimates. At 3:30 Roosevelt was. second to Wilson with pros |HH't that the latter would carry the stale by a small margin. Henderson Martin. Democratic State Chairman, claims the state for Wilson, and also dec-lares that Thompson has beaten Stubbs for Senator and Hodges has beaten Capin-r for Governor. The votes on all these candidates are rnnning so close that the official returns may be riecessary to detarmlne the result.
