CINCINNATI, Nov. 4.—In an interview today General Taft said "I believe I was elected by the business men of the country, Democrats as well as Republicans; that I received my share of the labor vote, and that the fanners generally stood by me." THE LESSER PARTIES The result shows that there is a slump in the Socialist vote over that of four years ago. The Hearst cide-show cut no figure in the election, the vote often being among the "scattering". The Prohi- 'litionits show a gain.

Returns from the west are increasing in fullness and tht\v may reach 325, is claimed by Hitchcock. One result, surpassing the most sanguine of Republican hopes is Taft's carrying of Greater New York by li/,6-15. His plurality in New York will greatly exceed Roosevelt'3 of 1904. Hughes was re-elected governor of New York by an estimated plurality of 75,000. New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania are Taft's by notable majorities. It appears Bryan narrowly carried Maryland. Colorado and Montana are subject to counter claims, with the former a probability for Brvun and the latter for Taft. is decisively for Brynn. E<irl.v indications give the following votes closed two hundred offices In the state last night and as there were no other telegraph offices In these placs, no returns could be obtained. It will probably be two days before anything like a complete count of the vote can be finished. Indications are that the Republicans will elect sixteen state senators and fifty-four assemblymen, and this with thirteen holdover senators, gives forty-six majority In the joint ballot for United States senator.
