NEW YORK, November 5. (Special to The Advertiser)
With the election of Woodrow Wilson to the
Presidency and Thomas It. Marshall to the Vice-Presidency
assured by the earlier returns tonight, the reports
up to midnight gave indications that the electoral vote
of the Democratic candidates would pass the 300 mark.
It was certain, however, that Illinois would give an
overwhelming majority to Roosevelt, while the race in
Pennsylvania was so close as to bring all three candidates
within the range of success.
Early returns gave Wilson the "Solid South" and
the States of Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, West Virginia,
Indiana and Missouri.
As the night advanced and returns from the West
began to come in, the earlier counts were confirmed, and
Montana, New Jersey and New Mexico were added to
those that seemed certain for the Democratic candidates,
while returns from San Francisco and Los Angeles made
it certain that California would join and
Rhode Island also became a doubtful State on the
returns near midnight.

With the old Bay Stato leading tho way, Now York followed with nn estimate
of '150,000 majority for Wilson. Florida went into tho samo column with
40,000 "and Texas with 225,000. As Wilson had boon oxpected to carry all tho
southern States, tho result in Florida and Texas would not liavo been alarming
ind it not been for the voto in Massachusetts. Further indications that tho
Democratic candidate had riven tho rock-ribbed Republican Now England
states, camo with tho announcement that he had enrried Maino apd Connecticut.
"Wnit until you hear from Pennsylvania nnd Washington," said tho Bull
Moosers, but the first named Stnto reported that Wilson has a big lead nnd tho
.Wolverines of Michigan wired that tho indications woro that Wilson had
that Stato, although tho r6turns were coming in slowly.
With these returns, tho East nnd South wero conceded to Wilson, and at
half-past ten o'clock, President Tnft, in Cincinnati, admitted tho election of
Wilson. The Itoosovolt supporters then announced that thoy wore pinning their
hopes on a landslide in tho West, but tho returns gavo them no courago.
Now Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Montana went into tho Wilson column.
Indiana was conceded to Wilson by tho Republicans early in tho game Oklahoma

"votes electoral collcgo, but at two o'clock this morning tho Now York

Shattered, Kulrio's former majorities reduced to the
least, irreducible minimum, and practically all the rest
of the ticket defeated by amazing figures, the Republican,
party went down to defeat in HaAvaii Territory yesterday,
as it did everywhere else throughout the nation, from
Maine to Oahu.
All the Republican senators were beaten by their
Democratic rivals, and all the members of the house from
Onliu will be Democrats with the exception of three.
Practically all of the other offices in the gift of the people
were turned over to. the Bourbons in the greatest political
landslide the Territory has ever witnessed.
Kuhio was pulled from the crash by the voters of

of Oahu like a flame, winding up with nearly seven hundred
votes to the good in his home county. ,
Jarrett and Rose received the major figure from the
voters and were returned easy winners.

would havo been elected. As it is, I have only tho consciousness of
having done my best. They are. sending Cupid back to a Democratic

COL. O. J. MCCARTHY:
"Wo won all along the lino because we put up clean men for offlco
and conducted a clean campaign, free from mutUllnging, free from tho
dirt of such fights as wero waged during the last month. The results
speak volumes In my mind for tho value of such a campaign."
O. S. WALLER:
'I believe tho explanation is very simple. It is a Democratic year.
Carlisle said that tho only way the rich could help tho poor was by
'getting off thoir backs.' Wo Democrats aro going to help the rich to
get off. We shall not be able to bring about the millenium, but at
least we are going to do something for tho people."
It was a pleased, but not at nil a surprised
