The Democrats -. til control the State

Jn fact micli successful Insurgency us
dominated the United State Senator
ship situation last year will not lie so
easy, In the. opinion of the Democratic
Stnto organization leader.
Tho Republicans failed to elect a
Senator or Assemblyman In Now Yoric
county. The Progressives elected tlireo
Assemblymen. In Kings nlso the Demo,
crats made a clean sweep, electing all
their Assemblymen and Senators.
The Democrats elected two-tlilrds of
the 61 Senators and over two-thirds of
the 160 Assemblymen. The Prosrres
lvcs did not elect a single Senator, but
.two Progressive Assemblymen In Man
In what has been termed the Dlx tidal
wave of 1910 the Democrats elected
30 Senators to the Kepublican 21, and

Last fall when the Assembly of 1912
was elected the llepubllcans recupluied
the lower branch of the legislature by
vote of 99 to 61.
Robert F. Wagner of Manhattan will
be the president pro tern after the next
State Senate and the Democratic: leader
of the upper branch of the State l.ogls
lature, which will be presided over bj
LIcutenant-Governor-elect Martin H.
Olynn of Albany. The Republican floor
leader probably will be Klon 11. Brown
The next Speaker of the State As
sembly will be Alfred 15. Smith of tho
Second district of Manhattan, and the
man who seems most likely to be Demo
cratic floor leader Is Assemblyman
Aaron J. Levy of the Fourth New York
cpunty district. He started In politics
as a Citizens Union district leader and
since then has served four years as a
Tammany Assemblyman. The Republi
can floor leader of the Assembly will
probably be Harold J, Illnman of Al
bany, although John Leo Sullivan of
Chautauqua, a progressive Republican,
may be a candidate.
The State Senate elected yesterday
uccessor to United Slates Senator Kllhu
Root will be elected In January, I91j, by
the Senate and Assembly elected In the
fall of 1914.
The older Senators who have retired
re Big Tim Sullivan, who has gone to
Congress again, and Senators Urackett
of Saratoga, Cobb of Jefferson, Illnman
of liroomu, Allen of Rensselaer, Waln

this year were Speaker Edwin A. Mer-
rltt, Jr., who is to succeed the late

S. Parker of Washington, who lias been
chosen for Congress; George A. Whit
ney of Saratoga, who has been elected
to succeed Senator Hrack'ett; Frank L.
Young, the Republican floor leader of
the Assenibly last year, who was the
Republican candidate for Surrogate of
Westchester county; Theodore Douglas
Robinson of Herkimer and Andrew F.
Murray of Manhattan, who were not
renominated. William W. Colne of
Kings was defeated for reelection. He
Is now chairman of the Assembly Cities
Lewis Stuyvesant ' Chanler. of
Dutchess and ex-Speaker Daniel Dodge
Frlshle of Schoharie are among the
Democrats who were not renominated.
One of the most Important acts of the
next Legislature will be to provide for
a convention to revise the State Consti
tution. The State constitution provides that
t tho general election to bo held in 191C
and every twentieth year thereafter, and
also at such times as the Legislature
may by law provide, tho question:
"Shall there be n convention to revise
the Constitution and amend the same?"
shall be decided by a majority of the
people who vote on the qupstlon. If
there Is a favorable decision then at the
next election at which Assemblymen are
elected there shall also bo elected to a
convention td revise, the State constitu
tion three delegates from each of the
"flfly-ono Senate districts and fifteen
delegates at large. The constitutional
convention would convene at Albany on
the first Tuesday of the month of April
following the election of the delegates.
Tho State platforms of the Democratic
and Republican parties favor leglsla-
t!on at the next session of the Legisla
ture to provide for the holding of a
State constitutional convention at the
earliest practical moment to pass espe
cially upon proposed amendments fa
vored by the Progressive party, such as

The Courier Journal says 24 of the

MiUDLESBono, Ky., Nov. C. Caleb
Powers has been reelected to Congcesa.
This city voted Roosevelt, 383; Wilson,
336, and Taft, 175.
BIG FOR WILSON IN LOUISIANA.
Iliioarvrll Sentiment Unlndlr to 10
I'rr Cent, of I'aual Majority.
New Orleans, Nov. 6. Gov. Wilson
polled ubout 80 per cent, of the vote
In Louisiana to-day. His majority will
exceed that of Bryan In 1908. The en
tiro Democratic representation In Con
gress from this State Is reelected.
Indications ut 9 o'clock to-ntght,
based on small returns, went to show
what had been considered a strong;
Roosevelt sentiment In Louisiana had
cut the State's usual Democratic ma
jority less than 10 per cent.
The Republican vote Is the smallest
In recent years. In many places Debs
ran well ahead of Taft. It Is thought
tho total State vote cannot be In excess
of 80,000, If It runs to that figure.
All the constitutional amendments
submitted are thought to have been de
feated. The Democratic Congressmen
have been elected without opposition.
Tho great slzo of the ticket, due to
presence thereon of municipal and other
candidates, has rendered thp count un
usually slow, ,
At 9 o'clock ten of 144 Now Orleans
precincts giivo Wilson 2,492, Roosevelt
340, Tnft 73 and Debs S6.

ocrats hovi won Ohio for Woodrow Wil
son -and Congressman Cox, their candi
date fur Governor, by pluralities that
range from 100,00" to 150,000.
They seem to have elected a complete
State ticket. They probably haw cap
tured all Ohio Congressmen save one or
two and liae secured majorities In both
Houses of the Assembly.
The contest between Roosevelt and
Taft for second place In Ohio was de
cided In favor of the President. Mr.
Taft has u substantial lead, which will
be reduced, however, by returns from
Cuyahoga and Luces counties, whero
Roosevelt Is close to Wilson.
The Cox plurality will exceed that for
Wilson. Ha has carried his own county
of Montgomery by upward of 10,000.
Franklin county by t,O00 und probably
Cuyahoga by 18,000. Hamilton county,
with Cincinnati, Is his by upward of
So far not a single county heard
from has gone Republican or Pro
gressive, The northern section of the
State was counted as Bull Moose ter
ritory, but the returns do not bear out
the claim. The southern ejection Is a
rather close rare between Taft and
Wilson, with Roosevelt third.
Attorney-General Hogan, graft prose
cutor, may approximate the Cox plu
rality, as he Is making a strong race.
He and Cox are contendere for the
honor of leading the ticket.

The following letter was made public

He wishes me to stale most emphatically
that the Progressive party Is soliif to con
tinue after election day, no matter what the
result of the eleollon msy be. The move
ment Is 'firmly established throughout the
country, We aro going to elect men to
Congress; Me are going to elect Senators
and (lovernors, and whether we do this
or not w are tolug to continue the Pro
gressive party and the principles which It
stands ror. Yours very Irulv,
(Signed) O. W. RooskveI.t.
' State Chairman William H. Ilotchklss
lookad himself In a room at State head
quarters all through last night and re
ceived the returns. Ha sent out word
that he would not issue a statement until
County Chairman Franois W. Bird issued
ttie following statement:
The fight has Jus) begun. We believe
that the principles for which we stand are
right and that In the end they will prevail.
Within three months we havo founded a
party and have doclalvely defeated the
Republicans in this comity. A winning
party has never yet been founded In three
months. The foundatiuns have been laid
broad and deep. We have placed our
party upon a solid foundation. It remains
now to build victory upon that foundation.
This election has demonstrated the bi
partisan combine of the two parties, which
was everywhere evident. Progressive
watchers were Illegally thrown from the
voting places. A Progressive watcher was
arrested for asserting his right tochsllenge.
In those districts In which the Progressive
vote was heavy the inspectors of election
placed every Impediment In the way of the
voters snd by so doing disfranchised a
largo number of voters. In one election
district nioro than fifty voters who hod been
In line long prior to 3 o'clock were dis
franchised. This is typical of many others.
Ilie police furnished no aid in preventing
violations of the law. Felonies committed
by the election Inspector before the police
were allowed to go unpunished. No redress
And at midnight State Chairman Hotch
kiss gave out the following:
A good fight is never lost. The present
struggle was Vorlh while and the people,
will profit therefrom. We were handl
caped by lews Intended to prevent Inde
pendent nominations. We had a scant
three months In which to present the Pro
gressive programme to an electorate to
whom the message Is still new. We had
few newspapers through which to reach
the people. Mory was larking to do the
necessary work and on election day the
poll was controlled by hostile inspectors
snd a msss of money was dumped into
districts where the venal vote Is Urge,
In the face of these odds over 400.0W) voles
were cast for a party which had no existence
four months ago. That, to my mind, is
the substantial result of the first skirmish.
The work will go on. The State commit
tee will-shortly be celled together and plans
devised wnereliy the Progressive pro
gramme will be carried forward throughout
the year. There will be no letup In the
fight and the ultimate victor)' Is as certain
as the sunrise on next election day.
MICHIGAN IS IN DOUBT.
Roosevelt and Taft Make Strong
FlBht for Wolverine State.
DaTrtoiT, Nov. S. Roosevelt undoubt
edly has made a strong race in Michigan,
but the result is in doubt to-night as the
returns are coming in slowly.
Detroit proved a big disappointment
to the Progressives.
Early returns indicate that Taft will
carry 'the city with Wilson second and
Roosevelt a poor third. It was in Detroit
that the Progressives expected to make
their best showing on the national ticket.
Forty-two precincts out of 177 In De
troit give Taft 2,393, Wilson 1,301 and
Roosevelt 8M. Not more than half a
doxen Socialist votes have been found
It is conceded that the Republican city
ticket is elected.
In Grand Rapids, however, Roosevelt
polled nearly as-many votes as Wilson and
Taft together. Eleven out of 41 precincts
gave Roosevelt 3.SO0, Wilson 1,400, and
Marquette gave Taft 854, Roosevelt 774
and Wilson 5i8.
Saginaw City, with two thirds of the
returns In, shows Wilson In tho lead
with 2,300, Taft, 2,050, and Roosevelt,
In general the Democrats at least
have held their normal vote and In
many coses Increased It, while Repub
licans nnd Progressives combined polled
far more than the normal Republican

fncidentH of tho Day.
The city voted early and heavily. The
duy was perfect and there a every
Incentive to got one's ballot out of the
way and rtui off to the country. Many
voters carried Ashing tackle or golf sticks
io the booths. In several districts two
thirds of Uie registration had been ac
counted for by noon. In The Hronx,
Where a county referendum was added
to the perrlexitlss of election, It was
practically all over at S o'clook.
Candidates for-offloa voted right after
breakfast, In time to be photographed
for the evening papers. Some of them
admitted that it might be their last plo
ture for a while. A barber shop at 65
Third avenue was William Sulrer's poll
ing plsoe. Strolling from his homo at
175 Neoond avenue he encountered a
pack of boy lugging barrel staves for
bonfires. They gave three cheers and
the Congressman paused In grave salute.
In the barber shop ballot No. 1 had been
saved for him. Four voters standing In
line nudged each other to one side when
Mr. Sulzer appeared, making way. - The
fifth said: "I'm as much in a hurry as
anybody." So the nominee wafted while
the hurried one voted. Meanwhile flash
lights popped. Tho time wan six mlnutei
and thirty seconds after 10 o'clook.
Oscar .Straus, walking to a tailor shop
ut 353 Amsterdam avenue, found him
self last in a line of sixty men. He wanted
to take his turn, but the line swayed
aside, election captains ushered Mr.
(Straus to tho front, a ballot that had
been waiting whs put into his hands
and iu half a minute the candidate had
cast a st ralght Progressive vote.
"There is only one straight, square
deal ticket, and that is the Bull Moose,"
said Mr. Straus as he emerged. "We
count on the silent vote." Whereat one
of the men In the line bawled out. "We're
not such a silent -fete, Mr. Straus."
The short, solid man with the kindly
face who left the Martinique at V o'clock
was Job E. Hedges. He was bound for
his polling place at 020 Sixth avenue.
Ihe five men ahead of him when he got
there wanted to "let the Governor vote
tlrst," but Mr. Hedges wouldn't have it.
He said, "My voto will keep." Even
tually the polling clerk called out "Hedges
"Not to' said Mr. Hedges. "The E.
is my middle Initial."
Cameras winked at him on the sidewalk
when ho got out, moving him to say, "I Bee
I'm going to be important anyway until
Chatting, oh so seriously, on the walk
back to the Martinique, Mr. Hedges com
plained that the erroneous assumption
that he Is a funny man is the greatest
wrong ever done him.
"Here is the only possible explanation,
he said, "for the reputation I seem to
have accumulated as a humorist: My
dear old mother Was very deaf in the
latter years and I used to talk to her on
my fingers a good deal. And when I
talked I tried to enunciate distinctly that
she might read my lips. The two methods
of pantomime grew upon me until, when
I became more or lose of a publlo speaker',
I Indulged unconsciously in a lot of ges
ticulation and grimace that may have
struck some weak minded persons as
One thing Mr. Hedges thought he had
done was to squelch the old hypcritical
idea Uiat it is undignified for a man openly
to seek public office.
"It's a Pecksjilfflan piece of piffle that
I think I have punctured . Wanting the
Job of Governor, I got out and hustled for
it," Mr. Hedges concluded. He said he
was tired, and went to his home in the
Martinique to rest all day.
Andrew Carnegie, having voted about
8:30 o'clock at 1288 Madison avenue, was
accosted In this fashion on the sidewalk:
" well, how many did you scratch?
, "Only one, at the head of the tioket, " he
answered, but what candidate thus suf
fered he did not say.

Most complaints of harsh treatment at

quarters. Frequently tho party's

With His Begular Daily
Othtkr Bar, U I., Nov. 5. Col. Hoose
velt came down from Iho Hill nt noon
to-day to cast his vote at the fire engine
house In the village. He brought seven
other Progressive votes with him in the
persons of all tho men servants on the
Rooeevelt estate. Two Burns men were
also of the party. It took tho Colonel four
minutes to prepare his ballot, complicated
as it was by the addition of several local
questions submitted by the Town Council.
When he emerged smiling from the
booth he good naturedly posod for two
pictures to satisfy the Insistent camera
men, who snapped him intermittently
from the time he arrived until his auto
mobile drove off with tho candidato still
good humoredly protesting.
Before the Colonel left the butldinc ho
turned to tho group of admirers who had
followed him in with a happy query about
last night's moeting and his attack on
"I guess wo cinohed Mr. Root and tho
rest last night, didn't wo?" ho inquirod,
Ana neroro ne knew it he had made a
little impromptu speech, which brought
out a cheer.
"They gave me just the chance I wa
looking for," he declared, "They gave
me the opportunity to nrovo that th.Vi.irr
corporation lawyers stand Mrongly
against all that we Progressives propose.
Lord, 1 only wish thoy had come out
with their protest a fow weeks ago. How
I would have hammered them out or the
rint . But I am not through With those
four gentlemen. They will hear a goal
doal from mo later."
Col. Roosevelt declined to enroll this
morning bocuuso there was no arrange
ment by which he could enroll ns a Pro
gressive, that party having never bcfoi
had anv official recognition.
Joseph French, poll clerk In the Colonel's
district, explained tho persistent rumor
that the Progressive candidate was not
entitled to voto to-day. He said:
"The Colonel was enrolled at the la"t
general election, but nt the spring pri
maries he failed to voto. Notwithstand
ing that he is entitled to voto to-dav
according to the law n rural districts."
Ilie Colonol didn't allow his usual dailv
routine to be disturbed in any way. H'
was occupied with his secretary over hi"
