I.cirislattirc and Congress
I.nlrnl returns received early this
mornlns show that New Jersey gave
her electoral vote to Wilson yesterday
hv .1 plurality of 40,000 or more over
liooM'velt and of 50,000 to 60,000 over

sic, however, in doubt. If final returns

tli Rooevoll Progressives from Essex
ivut.ty will hold tho balance of power in
the U-RUIature. The Democrats will
have ,i majority of ono on joint ballot,
wtmtini; Mercer's three votes, to elect
CotiBrcssman William Hughes, who car
ried the preferential primary, as suc-ce-cr
to Frank O. Briggs in t)ie United
1'rom fiov. Wilson's own county or
Mercer cams tho first information as to
flection results In New Jersey. 'The an
nouncement made in a Trenton despatch
that Mercer had given Wilson a small
plurality afforded basis for an estimate
that hi plurality in the State would
climb high into tho tens of thousands.
.Mercer is ordinarily one of the dependa
ble Mrongholds of tho Republicans in the
State Wilson carried it in the Guber
natorial campign of 1010 by about 200
majority, and his majority in the State
The few returns up to midnight indicate,
however, that the Governor did not do so
well yesterday in his own county as he
had done in his Gubernatorial campaign.
While from five out of thirteen Trenton
districts showed him to have a hand
Himn lead over either of his Republican
rival, his vote was not equal to them
combined. He probably beats Roose
velt, who is second In the race, apparently
all over the State, by 3,000 in the county.
An estimate from Hudson county,
foreshadowing a plurality of 30,000 in that
strongest of the State's Democratic coun
ties, indicates, however, that Wilson is
doing better in Other parts of the State.
The Democratic State Committee were
predicting a plurality of "5,000 for the
Tho returns came in with exasperating
slowness, however. The length of the
ballot and tho fact that each ballot had
to bo counted from Presidential eloctora
down to tho town constable made a slow I
tally. At midnight only u few hcuttering
ngures wero uvanuDie.
Tho Democrats, Itaned on these returns,
rlaim that the Legislature, which is
to eloot u successor to United States
Senator Frank O. Briggs next winter,
will have a decided Domoo ratio ma
jority on joint ballot. The Uepu bli
cuti Stato committee at Newark, white
making no chims as to tho results of
th Presidential voto, were loud in their
ahwn'tion that they had won the Legis
lature and the United States Senator.
'I ho general trend of the return s seemed,
however, to point to the election of a
legislature Democratic in lxth branches.
That would assure the eleotion to the
United States Senate of ex-Congressman
Willi'im Hughes, who was the victor
over James Smith, Jr., In the preferential
prima rls of September.
Karly returns from Cape May county
indicated, however, that the new Senate,
whose presiding olhcor wiil be the acting
dovemor of the State from the time Gov.
N ilson leaves Trenton for the White
House to the day in January of 1914 wnen
the new Governor to be elected next
l.ill will lie inaugurated, will bo Demo
cratic and so give .the State a Demo
cratic acting Governor.
The State was mightily excited as it
I eeame the more evident as the night
.oie on that its Governor had been picked
for the first place in the nation. New
Jersey had reached the Vice-Presidency
uway back in tho middle of last century
an the result of President Harrison's
death, and in McKinley's time she had
placed Garret H. Hobart in the Vice
I'residency. But she had never even as
much as named a candidate for the Presi
dency in all her history; and the fact that
one of her nubile men had been elected
to the Presidency stirred the people of
the State to great enthusiasm.
The day's voting had, however, pro
ceeded with unusual good order. There
oro no excitements at any of tho polling
plaers An incident thnt was much com
mented iion. however, was the disfran
chisement of some say as many as 5,000
oteis in Hudson county as the result of
it miunclorstandirig concerning the reg
wiy recpiin'ments. The disfranchised
voters had supposed that when they reg
istered m nio primaries to vote on nom
inal ions that registry qualified them to
nt" yesterday. In Essex county, where
V had Iwen crowded out in the same
way. the courts made it possible for the
Kemingl'. disfranchised to doposit their

THE IMPORTANT STEP
The most important step In
ensuring good work In building
is to exercise the utmost vigi
lance in examining samples of
materials, especially in mechan
ical lines, which are submitted
for inspection and approval.
We exercise extreme care in
this respect, and have Inspectors
do this work who arc familiar
with standard qualities and
capable of appraising the rela
tive merit of competitive lines.
Thus is obviated the possi
bility of any material being ap
proved which is not absolutely
up to the requisite standard.

St. Louis. Nov. 5. Scattering and In
complete returns from various points In
Missouri indicate Wilson has carried the
State for Tresldent by 10.000 to 20,000
and this lead probably will be Increased.
Major, Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor, in some cases is running ahead
of the national ticket.
Steady rain all day failed to keep th
voters from the polls and'a heavy vote
was cast over the State,
In Buchanan county Major has an In
dicated plurality of 3,500 and Wilson Is
slightly behind. McKlnley for Governor
has carried a number of counties, but his
vote Is not as large ns expected.
The Progressives showed considera
ble strength In a number of counties.
In some they ran second to the Demor
Kansas City reports heavy voting,
with the Democrats In the lead. The
Democrats have made a clean sweep
of Buchanan county, including St.
Joseph. Major has n majority of about
3,500 with Wilson close behind.
Up to 11:30 to-night not enough re
turns had 1 een received from the three
Congress districts In St. Louis to
show what tho final results would be.
The returns from the Tenth (brewery)
district show Congressman Bartholdt
having the hardest fight In his career
for reelection, but he Is lending O'Con

The Socialist stronghold Is In his dis
trict and they fought him bitterly this
time. Catlln, Republican, recently ousted
from tho lower house of Congress, Is
probably defeated In the Eleventh dis
trict by Igoe, Democrat. Hepubllcans
nre hopeful of Dyer pulling through In
tho Twelfth district, where Gill, Demo

counties nt 12:30 give Wilson for Presi

Montpklipb, Vt., Nov. 5. Vermont
elected Its two Congressmen, both Re
publicans, together with full State tioket
in September. The vote to-day lias been
large all over the State At 9;30 Taft
appears to have the State by about 1,000 ,
with Roosevelt second and Wilson third .
The Roosevelt voto is a surprise to the
other party managers.
At this time three counties, Essex,
Orange and Windsor, nre missing. Essex
and Orange are probably strong for
Roosevelt. Windsor county is doubtful,
but gave 500 Republican majority in State

Hartford, Nov. 5. Connecticut swung
back to the position In the Democratic
ranks that It occupier! In the first cam
paign of President Cleveland to-day and
more decisively so. The vote of the
Stnte shows the choice of electors who
will cast the seven votes of the State
for Woodrow Wilson, that decision being
nude by a plurality of 8,000.
Gov. Simeon K. Baldwin has been re
elected by a plurality of about 9,000.
The Connecticut Senate' will be Demo
cratic. The Republicans claim the
lower branch of the Legislature.
Gov. Baldwin In n speech to-night at
his home to several hundred Democrats,
who were celebrating his victory, made
the statement that the State was Demo
cratic and so was the Senate and that
his appointments herenfter would be
confirmed by a Democratic Senate and
not turned down ns they had been here
tofore by a Republican Senate.
Four of the Ave Democratic Congress
men In this State have been elected,
the only doubtful one being Mayor
Mahan of New London, the Democratic
nominee In the Second district. It was
thought at mldn'ght that he would win
by a small margin.
The Democrats elected are Lonergan
In the First, Relily (reelected) In the
Third, Donovan In the Fourth and Ken
nedy In tho Fifth districts. The defeat
of Congressman K. B. Hill of the Fourth
district wns a surprise. He Is a mem
ber of the Ways and Means Committee
and said to be one of the leading tariff
authorities In the country. Donovan,
who beat Wilson, Is a member of the
In New Haven the supporters of John
P. Studley. the Republican nominee for
Governor, were sure he would carry
this city because when a candidate f-.r
Mayor he carried every one of the fif
teen wards, n record never before
equalled. But Gov. Baldwin, whose
home town It also Is, won over Studley
by nearly 2,000.
At midnight the total vote on the na
tional ticket In 140 towns of the 168 In
the State wns: Taft. 53,209; Wilson, 59,
238; Roosevelt. 27.000. The vote for
Governor In 135 towns was: Studley.
52,920; Baldwin. 62,164; Smith, 23,196.
It was estimated by the Bull Moosers
thnt they would poll 40.000 votes, but at
midnight It seemed the total wouldn't
Some towns elected Democratic Rep
resentatives to-day for the first tlm

Joint ballot Is close, and the Progres

power. The Stat does not choose a

ever. The showing made by the third ticket
I a disappointment. To-night Presi
dent Taft's friends In this State rallied
behind him as a Yale man and Indica
tions are that his total vote will be
nearly double that of Roosevelt. Her

The Indications are that Roosevelt'

of one-half the total vole for Taft,

of the bureau of corporations, received
25 per cent, less votes than Roosevelt.

In reducing the Republican vote In

Indianapolis, Nov. 8. Wilson has
carried Indiana on a conservative estimate
based on returns from less than one-sixth
of the State by a plurality of from 20.000
to 30,000. and Taft and Roosevelt are run
ning within a few thousand votes of each
The returns so far represent the cities
and those only In the main in which voting
machines were used. These represent
only 501 precincts out of 3,200, nnd the re

so far as to endanger his election,

Governor, is leading Koosevelt In some

It was expected that Roosevelt would
run stronger tlian Taft in tho larger cities
and the early vote was not as disappoint
ing to the regulars as it otherwise would
It is predicted that the county vote,
which will not b'e reported till early morn
ing, will give Taft a decided lead over
Roosevelt. Interest in the returns at
this hour (0:30 P. M.) centres wholly in the
" ft -Roosevelt vote. At the Republican
and Progressive headquarters it is con
ceded that Wilson has carried the State
and it is now only a question of plurality.
While the aggregate of the Republican
and Progressiva vote is in excess of tho
Democratic vote) it is not equal to tho
Taft vote of 1908, nnd this confirms the
pre-election statement that many Demo
crats would vote for Wilson under the
belief that, the race waB between him and
Roosevelt, and feared Wilson less than the
Rtlll Mooso candidate. As the Pro
gressives have candidates in all of the
Indiana Con grows districts th Democrats
have the same advantage in these that
they have in the State and the IlenuDii
ciiiih do not expect to savo any of them.
It may be that complete returns will

G .0. P. AGAIN IN '16, SAYS HILLES
Blame T. R. for Disaster and
I'ralar Taft' Srrvlcr.
Charles G. Hllles, chairman of the Re
publican National Committee, gave out
the following statement at midnight:
"For the third time In fifty-two years
the administration of the Government
has been transferred from the Repub
lican to the Democratic party. In each
previous instance the Republican party
has been soon again called to power, for
It policy, Its history and Its administra
tion have been found sanest nnd safest
nnd the most conducive to the well be
ing and prosperity of our people and the
permanency of our Institutions. So It
shall be In 1916."
President Taft has served It and has
acquitted himself with credit to his
country. His exceptional preparation
foi the task was universally conceded.
His Administration was unqualifiedly
Indorsed by his party, which chose him
cfor Its candidate for a further term.
The record of achievement during his
Administration was unparalleled. He has
stood as a bulwark and support of the
Constitution and representative govern
ment ns tho very life of tho nation.
The Government has been administered
with fidelity and economy In every
The wellbelng of the American wage
earner Is unexampled. More men nre
employed to-day than at any time In
tho history of our country. Wages are
higher than ever before, and pros
perity abounds. All the conditions of
triumphant victory existed.
The defection from the Republican
party accounts 'for to-day's results, Tho
responsibility for this must rest
squarclv and solely upon Mr. Roosovelt.
Rut for Mr. Roosevelt's action In de
serting the Republican party Mr. Taft
would unquestionably have been elected.
He wruild not now bo face to faco with
the Inevitable transition from n
rational protective policy to the experi
ments of a tariff for revenuo only. T.io
Republican party will pursue and main
tain Its policies with undiminished con
fidence. It will return to supremacy in
1916 with Its policies fully vindicated
policies of reasonable protection to
American Industries nnd tho Independ
ence of the Judiciary,
"Out of all tho conflict of this extraor
dinary campaign there can bo drawn su
preme consolation In which every citi
zen of the Union may sharo that
through the uncompromising and un
flinching warfare of President Taft and
the Republican party a third term at
tack upon our Institutions has been de
feated and the stamp of condemnation
placed upon It by a vast majority of tho
citizenship of the country; and also that
through his determination and vigorous
exposure of tho dangerous fullacles of
tho third term party Mr. Taft has re
pelled the assaults upon the Constitu
tion of our fathers and upon the sound
and basic elements of national life."
