PHILADELPHIA, April 14Colonsl
Theodore Roosevelt's sweeping victory In
Pennsylvania at Saturday'a primary elec
tion kept growing today aa the returns
continued to come In.
Incomplete returns from every district
gave tne former president sixty-five of
the states seventy-six delegate in ths
republican convention. The Roosevelt
supporters were claiming sixty-seven and
later returns may carry the figures to
that total. Cblond Roosevelt woo fifty
three of the sixty-four district national
delegate and his followers elected
enough delegates to the state convention
to give them control of that body. Ths
stats convention will name twelve dele-gatee-at-largs.
Oovernor Woodrow Wilson of Nsw Jer
sey, who had no organised opposition,
will have seventy-four of the sevsnty-slx
delegate from Pennsylvania la th dem
ocratic national convention. In the Elev
enth congressional district the two demo
cratic national delegates elected are fa
vorable to Oovernor Judson Harmon, but
they are nrt pledged.
Politicians look upon the triumph of
Colonel Roosevelt with astonishment.

Ths regular republioan organisation
headed by United States Senator Boise
