New Jersey.
Newark, Nov. 6. New Jersey has
given Wilson a plurality estimated up
on meager returns at 35,000 to 45,000
over Roosevelt. Returns showed Taft

naif of Wilson's.
The heavlebt vote ever cast in tho

New York, Nov. 7. Only the uueer

election of Wilson and Marshall, spec
ulalion over tho popular vote of the
three presidential candidates and tho
complexion of legislatures that will
name United States senators, held In
terest In tho final returns or the gen
ual election.
The total of the Republican electoral
column apparently was fixed at the
twelve votes of Idaho, Utah and Ver
mont, but the footing of the Wilson
and Roosevelt columns flickered alter
natc'ly, as late returns from Kansas,
Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyom
ing gave indications of change from
the results previously accepted.
On the basis of the latest returns,
with tho vote of Kansuis, Minnesota,
South Dakota and Wyoming placed In
the "doubtful" column, Presidentelect
Wilson had 400 certain votes In the
electoral college, Colonel Roosevelt 7G
and President. Tart 12.
All of the doubtful states except
South Dakota gave more or less cer
tain Indications during the night ol
landing In the list of Wilson electoral
votes; while South Dakota's returns
showed a general trend townrd a
Roosevelt policy.
Woman Suffrage Wins.
A by-phaso of the general election
was the success of woman's suffrage In
four of the five states where constltu
lional amendments were submitted to
the people. The victory of the women
was complete In Kansas, Arizona and
probably Michigan; late returns from
Oregon Indicated they had succeeded
there also, while from Wisconsin
came return showing the decisive
defeat of the equal suffrnge proposal.
Assertions were made from several
quarters, where an effort had been
made to gather preliminary populai
vote figures, that Governor Wilson
had not secured a majority of the
totes enst throughout the country. Es
timates rnnged from a small majority
ol all votes to figures nearly 1,000,00(1
below a majority.
The popular votes, however, would
In no way affect his election, or his
complete control of the electoral col
lege, should It show his total to he less
than thnt of the combined vote of
Hoosevclt and Tnft.
Many Surprises.
There were many surprises. Early
In the day New Hampshire, first cred
ited to Taft, went Into the Wilson col

the Democratic candidate. Returns
from Idaho, which came In scattering
form early In the day, fuvored WIIboii

It would give him Its electoral vote,

state to go certainly for President
The Roosevelt forces, watching the
returns hourly as they came from II1I
nols, suffered a scare as the down
State Democratic districts reduced
Colonel Roosevelt's plurality from
Cools county until It promised to dis
appear. Later a complete report from
Cook county again swelled the Rcxrso
velt majority In the stato nnd seeming
ly made certain the control of Illinois'
twenty-nine votes hy the Progressive
candidate. Kansas, which had been
conceded to Roosevelt by all Interests
on the preliminary returns, gradually
slipped hack during the day until It
had become a question whether Wilson
or Roosevelt would control Its ten
Governor Wilson had the better of
the situation In Iowa and Minnesota,
where the counting still wns In prog
ress, with but a narrow mnrgln be
twecn the cnndldnteB, while South Da

had turned toward Roosevelt on the
later returns.
Whether the Democrats, In the wide
