The Democrats yestcrday swept New York State. They took eveiy
thing along the line, from Presidential Electors to the State Assembly.
Tammany Hall will have complete control of the state government, with
Governor, the state officers and the Legislature.
The third party remains the third party in this state. It cut into the
Republican vote enuu^h to Ueteat Republican candidates, but it could not
?ttncl enough to land its own candidates even in second place.
Go-ernor Wilson and Mr. Sulzer carried the state approximately by
EX.000. Mr. Sulzer ran slightly behind Governor Wilson. Mr. Hedges held
lecond place. while Mr. Straus was third in the contest for Governor.
Returns from 2.825 elcction districts out of 3.093 in New York State
outside cf New York City give Taft 301.162; Wilson, 315.095; Roosevelt,
186.11!. The s?.me districts in 1908 gave Taft 522,431: Bryan. 353.517.
Returns for Governor from 2,454 election districts out of 3.093 in New
York State outside of New York City give Hedges. Republican. 265.832;
Sulzer. Democrat, 278.753: Straus. Progressive, 156.328. The same districts
in 1910 gave Stimson, Republican. 339,359; Dix, Democrat. 312.159.

Taft 124 851- Roosevelt. 186,425. for Governor. with 97 election districts
niwing. the vote stards Sulzer. 287,980; Hedges, 105,775. and Straus, 177,651.

rral May for Secretary of State, Sohmer for Controller. Kennedy for State
Treasurer ind Bensel for State Engineer. Messrs. Glynn and May are new
to these ofhees. the rest now hold them.
The Legislature will be more strongly Democratic than it was two years
igo when Tarr.nwny. decting Mr. Dix, carried both houses. Then the
Serate stood 29 D-rr.ccrats to 21 Republicans and 1 Independent, and the
Ass-mblv 86 Democrats to 64 Republicans. Last year the Democrats were
ousted from corittol of the Assembly. which went heavily Repubucan. On
fairly comolete returns the new Legislature showed 34 Democrats to 17
Republicans and 1 Progressive in the Senate and 102 Democrats to 46
Republicans and 2 Progressives in the Assembly.
The Democrats retain their control of the Congress delegation from th:s
itate. the figures standing 32 Democrats to 11 Republicans.
Some -dea of the drift to Democracy is given by the fact that Governor
Wilson carried the strongly Rrpublican cities of Rochester and Syracuse
?nd Mcnroe County. In which Rochester is. Mr. Sulzer carried Rochester.

The Socialists lost heavily in Schenectady County. lost their Assembly

Defeats Taft by Almost 200,000 in State?New
Hampshire and Rhode Island So Close Mr. Taft
May Lose Them?Many Democratic Gov
ernors Elected in Record Sweep.
Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, was chosen President of the
United States yesterday.
Swept into office by a Democratic landslide. he carried with him
all of the doubtful states and many states firmly in the Republican
column for years.
Wilson's popular plurality bids fair to exceed the record one of
Roosevelt in 1904?2,500,000. The New Jersey man carried thirty
five states surely, giving him 390 electoral votes. He also pressed
President Taft so closely in New Hampshire- and Rhode Island that
an omcial canvass in each state may be needed to determine the
Colonel Roosevelt, who is second in the electoral vote race with
97, carried Kansas, Illinois, Iowa, Washington and Pennsylvania
The President was third, with 21 electoral votes: Idaho, 4; New
Hampshire, 4; Rhode Island, 5; Vermont, 4, and Utah, 4. But ol
these he stood a chance of losing nine votes to Wilson if New Hamp?
shire and Rhode Island switched.
Partial analysis of the votes availablc show the striking fact that
the combined Taft and Roosevelt votes would have swamped Wil?
son in the nation as a whole.
Early returns gave Wilson the Solid South, Maryland, Connec
ticut, Delaware, Maine and even Massachusetts, the last named state
by 25,000, estimated. New York swung to Wilson by almost 200.

TAFT SOUNDS RALLY1NG CALL
President Urges Republicans to Gather Again to the Party
Standard and to Organize to Defend
Cincinnati, Nov. 5.?President Taft at 11 o'clock to-night con
ceded the election of Governor Wilson. He issued the following
statement from his brother's home here:
"The returns insure the election of Governor Wilson to the Pres
idency. This means an early change in the economic policy of the
government in reference to the tariff. If this change can be made
without halting prosperity, I sincerely hope it may be.
"The vote for Mr. Roosevelt, the third party candidate, and for
Mr. Debs, the Socialist candidate, is a warning that their propaganda
in favor of fundamental changes in our constitutional representative
government has formidable support.
"While the experiment of a change in the tariff is being carrieu
out by the Democratic administration it bchooves Republicans to
gather again to the party standard and pledge anew their faith in
their party's principles and to organize again to defend the constitu?
tional government handed down to us by our fathers. We must
make clear to the young men of the country who have been weaned
away from sound principles of government by promise of reforms
impossible of accomplishment by mere legislation that patriotism
and common sense require them to return to the support of our Con
stitution. Without compromising our principles, we must convince
and win back former Republicans, and we must reinforce our ranks
with Constitution-loving Democrats.
"We favor every step of progress toward more perfect equality
of opportunity and the ridding society of injustice. But we know
that all progress worth making is possible with our present form of
government, and that to sacrifice that which is of the highest value
fn our governmental structure for undenned and impossible reforms
is the wildest folly. We must face the danger with a clear knowt
cdgc of what it is.
"The Republican party is equal to the task. It has had no
nobler cause. Let us close ranks and march forward to do battle for
I the right and the true."
