Columbus, Ohio.—With little more
than one-third of the total vote in the
state counted at 1 o'clock Wednesday
morning Colonel Roosevelts delegates
on therepubliean ticket and Governor
Harmon on the democratic preference
ballot, led in Ohio's first presidential
preference primary. The fight on
both tickets was so close, however,
that complete returns may change
final results.
Complete returns from slightly less
than 2,000 precincts of 5,192 in the
Mr. Wilson la the American ambas-
sador to Mexico and baa been a busy
man during the disturbances In that
state showed that Col. Roosevelt's
delegates had a lead of more than
15,090 votes. Governor Harmon's
lead over Wilson was considerably
less than this.
The closeness of his race with Wil-
son was indicated by late reports
from Cincinnati, Governor Harmon’s
home city. Here, the Ohio governor,
who had been well in the lead in the
early returns, was shown to have 1,-
954 votes and Wilson 1,904 in 120 pre-
cincts out of a total of 361.
While Col. Roosevelt had a lead of
15,000 in the total number of votes
cast for delegates pledged to him the
vote by districts was such ihat he
probably will not have more than 22
of the 42 district delegates to the
national convention.
But, while the democratic presi-
dential vote was so close the result
could not be foretold, the indications
were that Governor Harmon would
have at least 22 or 24 of the delegates
to the Baltimore convention. The
privilege of naming the six delegates-
at-large of the state, however, is car-
ried by the winner of the presidential
preference vote.
Of the congressional districts Col.
Roosevelt apparently has won the
delegates in the Fourth, bixth, Ninth,
Tenth. Eleventh, Twelfth, Fourteenth,
Fifteenth, Seventeenth, Eighteenth,
Nineteenth, Twentieth and Twenty-
flrBt districts. President Taft practi-
cally has been granted the First, Sec-
ond, Third, probably the Fifth, Sev-
enth, Eighth, Thirteenth.
