Crushed in Its Defeat.

Gov. Wilson has carried Maine, Mass

Jorjey, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ken

Kx-l'resldent Roosevelt has carried

In doubt Itctween Tnft nnd Itoosevelt.
That ancient bulwark of Republicanism,
Pennsylvania, Is In doubt between Wil
son nnd Itoosevelt.
In 190S Taft carried Illinois by 179,
121, Indiana by 10,731. Maine by 31,551.
Maryland by 605, Massachusetts, 110,
423; Connecticut. 4 1,660; Michigan. 159,

South Dakota, 27,270; North Dakota,
24,795; Iowa, 74,139; Wisconsin, 81,115,
and Vermont, 2S.056.
Tho Democratic victory In many of
these rockrlbbcd Republican States was
due entirely to the spilt In the Repub
lican party and to the candidacy of ex
President Itoosevelt. In most of these
States Itoosevelt get the labor vote and
the radical Republican vote, which has
been dissatisfied with the Taft Admin
istration and the Iayne-Aldrlch tariff
In other words. Col. Roosovelt, for
the time being at least, has practically
annihilated the Republican party In tho
In alt States where Roosevelt and the
regressive candidates for Governor
ive run second to Wilson and the Dem
ocratic candidates for Governor the Pro
Kreaslvc party will have control of the
election machinery over the Republicans
beginning- with next year's municipal
campaigns. This control will extend to
1914 In the State elections for Gov
ernor and members of the Legislature.
In New York State, In all counties
where Oscar S. Straus, the Progressive
candidate for Governor, has run second
to William Sulzer, the Progressives will
have control of the election machinery
over the Republicans beginning with
next year's municipal elections. This
control will also extend, according to
law, to 1914, when a Governor Is to be
elected and a Legislature Is also to be
elected which will elect a United States
Senator to succeed Ellhu Root.
Wilson carries New York Btate by ap
proximately 206,409, and Sulzer wins by
nearly the same plurality. There were
many astonishing reversals of votes In
the counties that for so many years
have given big Republican majorities.
The Roosevelt vote and the Taft vote
were very close to each other.
WjTeon carried the city pf New York
by a plurality of about 125,000 over
Itoosevelt, Taft running third, Sulzer's
plurality Is about 110,000 over Straus.
Wilson and Sulzer carried all the
boroughs. The combined vote of Roose
velt and Taft In New York city approx
imately equals that of Wilson, Indicat
ing that Roosevelt drew many Demo
The next Congress will be controlled
by the Democrats. The Son's returns
at midnight Indicated that they had
(Ariied the United States Senate from
the Republicans and will have It by a
majority of eight over tho Republicans.
This will give them fifty-two votes In
the Senate, a majority of the entire
body being forty-nine. Massachusetts
will send a Democratic United States
Senator to Washington for the first
Kmc In many years.
Tho next IIouso will be Democratic
by an overwhelming majority. The
Democrats will novo a plurality of 171
"fr the Republicans, as compared with
the margin of seventy-one, which they
have nt present. Many Republican old
timers In Congress, Including Uncle Jon
(-nnnon, lost their seats.
Mnlno luiH Bono for Gov. Wilson, his
Plurality from indications at 10 o'clock
'Itig about 3,000 over Roosevelt and
i'0,000 over Taft, Congressman McGII
i" 'iildy's county, Androscoggin, a
l'inocratlc stronghold, gave Roosevelt
n y three votes less than Wilson.
' nnectlcut went Democratic, giving
U'Uhoi) a plurality, reelecting Gov. Raid
mg nnd ii majority of both branches of
Uc Legislature and giving the Demo
Tats nil flvo Congressmen.
Pennsylvania with Its thlrty-clght
'lertorni votes appeared at a late hour
i have gone for Roosevelt. The Re
Publican Stats ticket and most of the
Progressive and Republican Congress
men were elected.
Massachusetts gave Gov. Wilson a
substantial plurality, with Taft second,
vnd reelected Gov. Koss. The Demo
crats made slight gains In the Leglsla
Rhode Island by a narrow margin.
e" Hampshire was carried by Taft
wh the third party ticket far behind.
Delaware went for-Wllson and elected
It" one Congressman, a Democrat, but
at midnight It looked as If Miller for
Governor nnd the Republican State
ticket had won.
Vermont at midnight showed a close
race between Taft and Roosevelt, with
Wilson fur behind. At that ISO out of
-48 precincts reported this result: Taft
1S.508; Roosevelt. 18.318; Wilson, 11,189!
Wisconsin took a jump Into the Dem
ocratic column. The reversal from Re
publican leanings was more marked In
Statu Issufs than on the national ticket.
The Socialists suffered defeat.
Michigan was In doubt until a late
hour, but returns seemed to Indicate
that Roosevelt had carried the State.
In Indiana there was n severe blow to
tho Progressives In the defeat of Hev
erldge for Governor. Wilson and Mar
shall have a good sized plurality In the
State, but not so large, it Is thoughVas
that uf the Democratic candidate for
Ohio Is conceded to the Democrats by
a good plurality, and Cox. their candi
date for Governor, Is said to be running
ahead of the national ticket.
The Northwestern Stntes, Minne
sota and North Dakota, swung Into the
Wilson column by small majorities.
Roosevelt made a better showing than
Wilson carried Oregon by perhaps as
much as 65,000 over Roosevelt and
Taft. Tcft was a poor third.
Taft may get the State of Washing
ton, where the polls closed at 11 P. M.
New York time. Wilson was Mn .
I the President In the early count.
j ne uemocrats won In Montana prob
ably by 4,000 to 6.000. The Democrats
have probably elected Stewart Governor,
but not with Wilson's plurality.

majority of 30.000 tn in nan n,i
