The Williams Record posts Tuesday evening election returns in the office at Jesup Hall.
"Especial effort is made to announce results in a definite concise form". The previous Thursday evening a Torch Light parade was held with the North Adams band leading the Republicans and their red and green torches around the town and then to the Opera House for a rally. William Howard Taft, friend of President Theodore Roosevelt and his Secretary of War, became our next president. The ticket of Taft and Sherman carried 29 states.
