in Streets, Theatres, Hotels
New Tork last nlirht took Its hat 1 to Woodrnw Wllion And gave a
cheer for the next President of the United States that wan heard all tho
way round the world. Thousands, tens of thousands of proplo crowded
the squares and streets where returns of the election were displayed. Thou
sands heard the nowa In cafes, In theatres, In hotels. In cheaper places of
amusement. A million people passed In review along upper llroadway. It
was one of New York's most wouderful nights.
Karlj In the evening white shafts ot
light pteroed the heavens frnm a score
of pinnacles. Ths flashes meant that
Wlson was elected. K-irlter than the
flMhes the tvds or ", i t- hsd set In

news centres. The great a waa flow

tho main artery emptier! their streams.
Hi aea ebbed and flowed.
It was the greatest crowd and the best

Thousands upon thousands were gath

EVERY ONE KNEW EVERY ONE

The gowns of the women, the shimmer
