nlRht might resent this, but they had to
tend it this once.
Inasmuch as moat of the evening extras
announcing tho election of Wilson ap
peared on the streets a little before the
polls closed nnywhero except in Massa
chusetts the rejoicing began early. Hy
S o'clock Inspector Lahey's l.V) policemen
who lined the curbs from Thirty-second
to Fortieth street went on tho Job right
then and by. 7 o'clock they were working
hard, by 8 they were on third speed and
by 0 they were Riving it all trio motor
would stand. Mostly tney were trying
to prevent tho overflow from stepping
out In front of tho automobile in the
street and r.lso in preventing the rural
visitor from going uptown on tho left
hand sido of tho sidewalk, which is a fa
vorite trick of his.
Tho policemen last night did not mind
the noire. Their orders wero to keep
down tho confetti and bar tho ubiquitous
tickler, which is a hunch of feathers
on a stick, much fancied by the pick
pocket. Otherwise there was no limit
nil no restrictions on what they did so
long as they kept moving. You might
wear any old thing, carry any 'd thing,
and never a policeman would bat un eye.
All this accounts for the fact that the
noise last night wus mado with every
variety of horn ever invented, cow bells,
aquawkers, winders, frying pan arrange
ment with drumstick attachments, burg
lar rattles, tin boxes with bullets in them,
name unknown; slap sticks, automobile
borna, resined strings, castanets, cymbals,
cremonas, concertinas and vicious looking
kettledrums with tin heads, to all or
which must be added the human voice,
and the human voice was there tost night,
It must be admitted, with everything
that a human voice ever carried.
There may have been noise like that
of last night before In small areas, say
in a football game or a battle in the Bal
kans, but it would take more than one
battle or on aggregation of football
games to keep up with the eleotion tu

And as for City Hall Park and Printing
House Square, with Tub Sun building
as' the centre, it massed them from the
steps of the newspaper building, across
the pari: and up into the doorways of
the buildings on the west side of Bread

said, that the unimportant feature of
the night the election of a President,
Vice-President. Governor and a few
other assorted statesmen was settled.

The rooster hat is a self-asserting
article of headgear of tissue paper, a
big, red head with big, red wattles, green
wurgs, green body and a vari gated tail.
It bears in Its bill some clover little motto
like: "Here we are again! " or "1 told you

rorners they went fast. Most men said
when they bought them that they were
just souvenirs." That was when they
started marching and before they had
made anv life saving stations. Later in
the evening the rooster was found upon
the head of the owner of it, who by that
tiros had added usually a cowbell, a rattle
and a horn.

the hotels and restaurants played to more

Usually there were waiting lists for vari

TAMMANY NOT SURPRISED.
Murphy and Ills Lieutenants Hear
the Itrtarna at Wlgntm,
Charles F. Murphy and his political
family, or many of them, received the
returns in the speakers' bureau in Tam
many Hall last night. The early returns
put all hands in good humor and when
Mr. Murphy arrived n bit late the assem
bly gave him the warm greeting usually
accorded a victorious leader.
The big chief sat down near the west
wall while John Martin was rending the
returns from various parts of the nation.
The district leaders nnd tho big men In

tho chair next to Mr. Mumhr for n chat.

Juifge Cohalan got on the other side for a
while. StrAeComntroller William Sohmer
sat near bv and heard his reelection an
nounced. He and tho others seemed to
take it as n matter of course,
In fact if thore was any surprise felt
by any Tammany man in the room over
any of the announcements it could not be
detected on their faces or in their talk.
Nor was there any indications of exuber
ant exultation. One man carried in his
hat a card: "I told you so." That seemed
to be the feeling of all in the room. Home
of those who chatted with Mr. Murphy
were Barton Weeks, ex-Commissioner
of Health Darlington, ex-District Attor
ney Asa Bird Gardiner, Judge Benjamin
Hoffman, Senator Foley and John C.
After the returns were all In Mr. Mur
phygave out this statemont:
"The result Is a striking evidence of the
power of the people and demonstrates
most clearly that the reforms and changes
which the,ieonlu domand must be made
without endangering the fundamental
institutions of the country.
" ino victory Is nation wtdo in Its scope
and shows clearly the conlldence the
people have in tho ability of the Demo
cratic party to reform the evils and abuses
which nave crept into the public life of the
country. The sweeping victory in the
State must hearten all good citizens nnd
will greatly advance the cause of good
government and encourage all who in
the face of captious criticism have worked
so unselfishly for the last two years In the
Interest of the people..
"Once more it has been most clearly
shown that the cause of Democracy is
the cause of the people."

from "doubtful" States-tind from tho cries
of "Wilson, Wilson. Wllon!" that rose

Tho national chairman's two sisters
shared the evening with him. They were
of a party entertained by Mr. MoCombs
in a prlvote dining room of the hotel.
In tho cheerful group were also Senator
James A, O'Gormnn nnd Mrs. O'aorman.
Treasurer Holla Wells and other cam

Wilson doubts oast aside, was also there.
It was remarked, however, that Vice

the campaign when Mr. MoCombs was ill
for six weeks, wus not there,. Ho stayed
in camp nt national headquarters,

By 7 o'clock Mr. MoCombs was saying
that ids predictions of previous days had
been vindicutod, but it was not until It

When tho chairman emerged from his

by waiters and bellboys of tho Waldorf,
and again by tho nowspapor men whom
he then confronted.

for tho establishment of such economic,
industrial and social policies as will en

Even at this early hour an overwhelming
electoral voto is evident for Gov. Wilson.
"For months and months," he went on,
"I've been telling the oplo that Wilson

tho American eople will think the same

Josephus Daniels, national committee

back the Government to the people.

mistaken in their man. "
Mr. McCombs had hardly got his coat
off when the early news at 0:10 o'clock
impelled him to say to his dinner guests:
"It is evident that the expected Itooso
velt landslide has failed to materialize.
I have received scores of telegrams from
doubtful States which assures me that
there aro nd doubtful States."
At that moment u messenger camo run
ning to say that Norman K. Mack was
telephoning that tho Democrats had car
ried Buffalo and Eriecouuty. Mr. Barnes's
concession at 7 o'clock that Wilson had
carried this State also tickled the chair
man and his squad, as did Frank A.

ADMITS DEFEAT EARLY

Declines to Make
In tho all pervading gloom that existed
at Republican Stnto headquarters last
night Chairman William A. Barnes was
tho only one who seemed to leur up
under the blow. No mutter how Imdly
he may have folt, he managed to conceal
It with a smile und laughed and joked as
ho sat receiving the news of tho Repub
lican defeat in both Stute and nation.
Eariv In tho evening Mr. Barnes con-
coded victory to the Dtmocratlo ticket
and issued the following statement:
"The result In the Stale of New York
demonstrates one thing, the Roose
velt movement was simply a Republi
can bolt and drew almost to no extent
from the Democratic party. With all
tho frantio efforts which were made to
secure votes from ieople generally the
result shows that one but former Re
publicans joined the Itoosevelt move
ment. The decisive victory of Taf t and Hedges
over Roosevelt and Straus is a demon
stration that tho then Republicans of the
State of New York desired the ronom
ination of President Taft and that the
delegates from tills State nroperly ex
pressed mo preierence oi ine men Re

Mr. Hedges did not 'admit his defeat
so early In tho evening. Ho was closeted

In the Oak Room on the seme floor were
gathered a large number ot Mr. Hedges's

Mr. Stewart said: "Mr. Hedges's cam

SOCIALISTS PROUD OF VOTE.
Assert Tber Tolled 80,000 In New
The Labor Temple, Eighty-fourth street
and Second avenue, was a general head
quarters last night for the members of
the Socialist party Who camo to hear the
returns. Tho officers of the party said
that a competent force of watchers had
been sent to all the polling places and
that the Socialist vote would lie promptly
Tho returns wero slow, however, and
a crowd which flllod the Labor Temple
waited with more or loss enthusiasm
as it listened to speeches and the playing
of the "Marsellaise" by a brass band.
At the headquarters of tho Socialist
party next door the returns wore reoelved
in an incomplete form and read to the
crowd in the Labor Temple, but no dis
tricts were heard from completely and
the returns indicated little.
Charles K. Russell, the Socialist party
candidate for Governor, appeared a little
before 9 P. M. at tho Socialist party head
quarters. Ho said that Debs.which meant
also the straight Socialist ticket, polled
80,000 votes yesterday in this State. The
Socialist vote was 48,500 in New York State
two years ago and 38,000 four years ago.
"This shows that the Socialist party is
surely going ahead," he said. "In this city

ever I have seen thorn. This Is especially
the case In tho Twelfth Congress district..

He declared that the election in thn
Twelfth district wus a farce. Intimidation
of all kinds, he Bald, was used to prevent
people voting for London.
"I went round the polling places in an
automobile this afternoon, ho continued
"and found onen bribery and intimidation.
and tho stuffing of ballot boxes going on.
It was anything to prevent London's eleo
tion. If there had been anything like
rairness in tne campaign of Tammany
London would have stood a good show, and
I believe would have been olectnd. Thnra
was bulldozing, colonization and fraud on
tho part of Tammany heelers everywhere,
and I havo not known ot anything as dls-

spot just cleared by a Third avenue trol
ley car, at 9:50 o'clock last night, wild
that 20,000 persons at least were massed
between THE SUN building and the build
ings on the west side of Broadway. They
began at tho curb, stood in a solid masi
out to the car tracks, left space only for
the cars, and then formed another solid
mass across City Hall Park as far as the
eyesight would allow them to go.
They forgot all park rules, except they
didn't trample the grass. They stood
on the benohes, climbed trees, perched
on the side of City Hall itaelf, on its steps,
decorated the tope of the subway en
trances and exits and even tried to do
acrobatics on the wire fences.
It was an orderly crowd, the Inspector
said. It was there to read the election

down Seventh avenue for nearly two
blocks, and up. solidly, to 137th street.
A great many of the people had no possible
chance to see, but they stayed just the
same, depending on friends In more for
tunate positions to call out to them what
