LINCOLN, Nov. 6. (Special.) "At noon
today all the counties were In and complete
except - Chase, Cherry, Keya Pa hi, Loup,
McPherson, Rock, Sheridan and Sioux,"
said Chairman Hayward today. "Taft car
ried all of these counties except Sheridan
by majorities totaling 431. The one county
which went for Bryan gave him a majority
of twenty-four. In the eighty-three counties
which we have in. Judge Fawcett, our low
man, has a lead of 1)233 over Judge Sulli
van, their high man. Judgo Barnes, our
high man, has a lead over Judge Good,
their low man of 2,669, showing how re
markably close the candidates ran on their
respective tickets. To these majorities may
be safely added 400 more In the eight coun
ties unheard from. This would make our
smallest majority about 1,700 and our larg
est majority on Judges about 3.000.
"We are not disappointed the majority of
our low man, but are surprised that the
majority of our high man la not greater.
We started out In the campaign on the
theory that It would be much better to
elect all three of our Judges by majorities
of about 1,000 than to elect two of our
Judges by majorities of 10,000 to 30.000. and
lose one Judge entirely, Inasmuch as It is
the certificate of election and not the ma
Jorlty that reall ycounts. Working out this
theory, we have tried all through the cam
paign to build up our low man and pull
down their high man.
The figures on regent will be surprising
because the lack of fusion on their ticket

SAN JUAN, P. R., Nov. .-Colonel Q. II.
Colton was today Inaugurated governor of
Porto Rico, succeeding Regis H. Post. "We
must stand together for Porto Rico and
Porto Rlcans," was the keynote of the
inaugural address of Mr. Colton.
Governor Colton warned the people of the
country against "legislating themselves
rich In a day" and recommended rather a
calm, sustained, thoughtful effort to take
advantage of every opportunity presented
at home and abroad to extend the Porto
Rlcan markets and develop Its trade.
He assured the Porto Rlcans that com
plete self-government under the Stars and
Stripes eventually would come to them
when a sustained public opinion arose
among the whole people that could not be
easily swayed by the specious argument of
the few who might seek to better them
selves at the cost of their country.
In concluding, he said:
"I pledge you my constant support of
everything that may be of real advantage
to the Porto Rlcan people and I feel that
no petty thing will be permitted to inter
cept the realisation of the good intentions
of the American people toward you."
