Milwaukee, Nov. 5. Wisconsin has
gone Democratic. It has gone even
more strongly Democratic on State
Returns are slower than ever before,
owing to the entanglement of the Hull
Moose vote, even though that vote was
so light us not to bo entirely respon

The Roosevelt vote will probably b

over the Republican figures of two
years ago In tho State election show a
reversal of almost 100,000. Roosevelt's
strength comes out of the 100,000 Re
publican loss, while tho rest of the dif

Mrs. Taft. Miss Helen Taft. Charles
P. Taft and a small party of friends
dined last night at the Hotel Manhat
tan as the guests of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles D. Hllles.
Tho dinner was served In one of the
parlors of the sulto on tho first floor
which w-hs occupied by President Taft
tho lost time he stayed at tho hotel, and
all approaches to it were gunrded
against Invasion by outsiders.
The table, which was set for fourteen,
wan decorated with "Taft roses," and
Miss Taft's frock of embroidered pink
tissue was Just a shade deeper In tone
than her favorlto flowers. "Charlie Taft,
who came down from New Haven on an
early evening train, arrived an hour
later than tho other guests and went
Into tho dining room without changing
his travelling clothes.
Tho party was cheerful. Mrs. Taft
and Miss Taft talked and laughed gayly
during tho two hours thoy sat at the
table, and If any of the diners felt de
pressed over results of the election as
foreshadowed they did not show It.
Mrs. Taft and her son and daughter
remained nt the hotel last night nnd
will return to Washington to-day.
Miss Helen Vauck Uoswell nnd Miss
Mary I.. Wood, who havo been working
hard for the reelection of President Taft,
gathered a group of friends in their
headquarters on tho fourteenth floor of
tho Times Rulldlng nnd explained to
reporters that they were not a bit
discouraged, for tho G, O. P. would
surejy cmno back In 1016. They opened
several boxes of chocolates, assorted
nougat, cream peppermints nnd other
sweets nnd nibbled contentedly ns thoy
discussed tho political situation.
Not so the Moosettes. Mrs. Amos
Plnchot, Miss Anno Rhodes, Miss Clara
Morrison nnd a score of their zealous
lieutenants paced tho corridors of tho
twelfth floor of the Hotel Manhattan
all the evening, scanning bulletins und
asking every man who would stop to
listen whether thern wasn't Just a
chanco that tho West would put their
candidate In after alt. There wasn't
a sign of confectionery anywhere in
"It would be horrid of us to eat, even
If wo had the heart for it," explained
one of them, "when the men have let
us slay right hero with them and have
given up NtnoKing ror our waken,"
Mary Donnelly said she thought the
Moosettes had done remarkably well,
anyway, considering that there were no
many green men in the party.

JOHNSON GIVES UP AT 10:80
Talking Already of What They
Will Try to Do in
Gov. Hiram W. Johnson, the Vice-.
Presidential candidate of the Progres
sive party, spent last evening nt tho
headquarters in the Manhattan Hotel
smoking his briar pipe.
It wns 10:30 before ho would admit
defeat. Then he mado the admission re
luctantly nnd refused to make a state
ment, because, he said, there won no
telling nt that hour how great the de
feat really was.
Throughout the evening he wore a
calm and untroubled, though serious ex
pression. As ho walked back and forth
from room to room, his pipe held firmly
between his teeth, ho said on receiving
reports that New York had gone to
"Oh, well, this Is only the beginning.
There will be another campaign four
years from now."
Mrs. Johnson spent the evening in
company with Mrs. George W. Perkins
nnd Mrs. Joseph Dixon. They remained
until late In n room set aside for the
closer friends of the party leaders nnd
campaign managers, where they re
ceived the returns as thoy came in ovar
Shortly before 11 o'clock Gov. John
son, who up to that time had been
standing talking in tho corridors, re
tired to a private room and did not ap
pear again until after 11. He sent out
word that he did not care to make any
statement until a majority of the fur
Western States had been heard from.
There was not much Jillarlty of spirit
evinced nt Progressive hendriuarters last
night. There were plenty of ardent,
sympathizers in the rooms and corridors
of that part of the Hotel Manhattan
occupied by the national headquarters,
but none of them at nny stage of the
anxious evening was so bold ns to ex
press anything like a confident hope
that Roosevelt and Johnson would come
Rut they were all game losers. From
the moment when defeat was certain
they began to talk of what had been
accomplished and whnt might yet be
done. One leader, whose name may not
be used because he refused to have him
self quoted, said:
"There Is at least a great deal of en
couragement to be found in the fact
that wo have managed to smash tho
Republican party. In reality we have
been looking forward to defeat and an
ticipating It from the first, and when
you stop to think that we have accom
plished as much as we have In a brief
three months the results are not after
all so bad."
Ono of the most noticeable features of
the evening at the headquarters was
the presence of about fifty handsomely
gowned women, who listened to tho
bulletins with more excitement than did
any of the men.
Tho first Stnte claimed by the Roose
velt followers at Progressive headquar
ters last night waa Vermont. At 8
o'clock that State was posted on tho
bulletin board, which hung against the
v.nll Just opposite the elevator on tho
twelfth floor of tho hotel.
Until 9:15 o'clock that Stato held
sole occupancy of the bulletin board,
and sympathizers moved gloomily up'
and down hearing disappointing returns
and very little that gave them cause
for hope. At that hour Michigan was
posted as having gone to Roosevelt, and
the corridors resounded with applause.
Senator Dixon, who had been walking
from the room In which Gov. Johnson
was to the room where returns were be
ing received, enmo out at 9:30 and
claimed In addition to Vermont and
"There's not a word from the far
West as yet," he said.
A few minutes later when Georgo W.
Perkins announced that Roosevelt had
eighty-two electoral votes from Penn
sylvania, Massachusetts, Vermont and
Illinois there was Instantly a consider
ably brighter expression on the faces of
It was nearly 10 o'clock when a bul
letin giving Roosevelt 244,000 votes In
New York State, outside of New York
city, leading Wilson In New York by
100,000, wa announced. Scarcely five
minutes had passed, however, when
Senator Dixon walked by the bulletin
board, glanced at It and said: "Put up
Iowa for Roosevelt." When the boy
In charge of the board pasted that Stato

Rumors were soon current that Okla
homa had gone to Roosevelt and shortly
afterward Oklahoma was posted as
among tho States which had given a
Progressive majority. At 10 o'clock South
Dakota was claimed for the Progres
sives. A thirty minute silence followed
and then came word which purported
to tm authoritative that Wilson had
swept Maine, Massachusetts, Connecti
cut, New York, Maryland and the solid
South. After that It was hard to find
any one so optimistic an to cling to
tho chance of victory for the Progres
sive party, though up to thn moment of
that announcement thn leaders had not
by word or sign signified that they ad
During thn early evening some of
the members of the Roosevelt family

rooms opening on each other an1 heard

Mr. and Mrs. George W. Perkins, Frank

COMMENTS OF NEW YORK PRESS.
From the Herald.
A few friendly words to Mr. Woodrow
Wilson designated as the next President
of theUnlted States:
On November 4, the day before election,
in outlining tde policy of theDemocratlc
yarty you said that it would be to
"(lo forward without postponement or
experiment or confusion to effefct reforms
which the whole country waits for "
to effect them by the ordinary procemen of
legislation, willing to be euided by the com
mon counsel of the nation us a whole, the
plain people, with the rest, regardless of any
Interest, thetittleaswellasthe big,
a carefully considered course of moderate
yet courageous reform."
These words you should keep before you
during the next live months, which will
be the period largely devoted to the selec
tion of your counsellors nnd to the map
ping out of a denftlte proBramine. You
will take over the administration of a
country actually more prOKperoiis than at
any other period of It history. If you
leave it that way at the end of your ad
ministration you will be regnded as one
of the greatest Presidents thai ever lived.
You propose to do great things. Your
programme actually contemplates the re
making of industrial America. But wo
tpiht that your programme to the very
end will includn, the maintenance of the
status quo of prosperity.

Tho Democrats will be in power. Evi

of the power of the Kxeeutlvp and the

amusing Hepublieau predictions of ruin
and panic that their very authors will smilo

will have all freedom, equal opportunity,
every lawful right and privilege. Mr.
Wilson has Mild that dishonest business

That is not- a programme at which the
righteous need stand In -fear. Mr. Wilson
will be a conservative President In the best
sense of the word: the Democratic party
In that best sense will be a conservative
party. It would hn blind indeed if It did
not see that II Is only through a wise con
servatism that it can retain the confidence
of the country. The people have Just voted
overwhelmingly against radicalism, against
agitation. Thero will now bo a ruthless

WILSON'S RECORD VOTE
0. T. Elects Lone Senator,
but McCooey Claims Even
The Brooklyn Democracy yesterday
scored th most sweeping victory in its
history, far exceeding the exiectatlons
of the most sangiiino party leaders nnd
fairly dazing the old Republican chieftains
who were dumfounded when tho returns
began to show Roosevelt well ahead of
Taft in not only Democratic but strong
Republican election districts. The re
sult was so plain that within an hour
after the polls closed the Democratio
managers claimed the county for Wilson
by 40,0011 or more and the Republicans
and Progressives conceded that was not
Wilson's plurality, whicli was 37.S85
with only two districts missing, was the
largest any cundidato ever received in
Brooklyn, exceeding by more than 10,000
een that for Schieren in the memorable
Mayoralty contest, during the period of
the McKano rebellion. It was 20,000
moro than Taft's plurality four years
Republican headquarters in the Temple
Bar Building were dismal. The fow visi
tors who dropped in early lingered only
a Bhort time, and former Judge Jacob
Brenner, who hoa long been at the head
of thn executive committee and has
managed many campaigns, admitted that
he could not rind a grain of consolation
in tho figure.
"I have passed through many political
battles," he said, "and in some our party
won, and in somo lost, but this is tho worst
blow we ever got."
Ho would make no prediction aa to the
outcomn of the deep rift in the party
ranks or tho prospect of an alliance be
tween Republican and Progressives.
The Bull Moose managers, who received
returns at tho Clarendon Hotel, were
eiated over putting Roosevelt second.
They declared the death knell of the
Republican party had been t-ouffdod and
prophesied it would never cut any figure
in a Presidential battle again. All over
the borough cheering, jubilant crowds
thronged the streets and there was no
clash anywhere between victors and van
quished. There never has lieen a more quiet or
orderly election in Brooklyn than yester
day's. There was not a single disturbance
of any account and only a few arrosta for
alleged illegal registration were made.
Nearly all of those were made on technical
grounds and were quickly disposed of in
John II . McCooey, tho Democratio
county leader, made this statement:
I am highly gratified with the result.
The victory is sweeping and the action
of the pcoplo conclusive. The dominant.
Issue In this campaign was the tariff, anil
particularly that purt of It bearing upon
the cost of living.
This was tlie paramount Issue two years
ago and resulted In the election of a Demo
cratio House of Representatives. That
House endeavored to relieve the people of
tho country by means of legislation which
President Taft vetoed.
Hy this action be convinced the Amer
ican people that their only hope of relief

assurance to tho pcoplo that thn pledges
of tho platfonfl will be carried out in every

The Democrat carried seven of the
eight Congressional dlatrieU, Comrtf
man Calder, wbojwas the only Republican
Congressman elected in Greater New York
two years ago, having been reelected in
the Hixth district. Under the recent re
apportionment, which gave Kings county
two more Congressmen, thero was a
normal Republican majority of more
than 10,000 in this district, but Calder 's
plurality will be only about 8,000.
The Democrats elected all the eight
State Senators, a Rain of one over two
years ago, when Travis pulled .through
by a small majority.
McCooey, the county leader, would not
concede a single one of the twenty-three
Assemblymen to either the Republicans
or Progressives at an early hour this

Wilmington, Del.. Nov. 5. At mid
night the election of Miller, Republican
and National Progressive candidate for
Governor, was seemingly assured, ills
plurality may be 2,000. Nothing
definite wns known regarding the Legis
lature but tho Republicans claim it.
Wiiminotov, Del., Nov. 6. Returns
wore slow in coming in from Wilmington
and throughout Delaware. The polls
closed at B P. M. Indications at 8 o'clock
were that WiiBon had carried the State
and Franklin Brockson, Democrat, is
elected tt Congress. In tho absence of
returns no ilellnite prediction can be
made regarding the Legislature that will
elect a successor to United States Senator
Richardson, Republican, It looks, how
ever, aa if tho State ticket and the General
Assembly are Republican. 1
The National Progressive, tho second
progressiva party in Delaware, polled a
much larger vote than the original Pro
gressives. In some districts of Wilming
ton the Nationals beat the originals three
and four to one. The Republican vote,
especially In Wilmington, is lessened
probably 15 per cont. because of tho Pro

Daltimoiuc, Nov. B. Present indica
tions are that Wilson will carry Mary
land by a plurality of 2S.0O0 and that
he Is likely to.have even a majority over
both Roosevelt and Taft.
The Democrats havo elected Coiigrcsj-'
men In tho First, Second, Third, Fourth

In the Fifth, though the latter is run
ning behind in the city precincts. He
seems to be about holding his own In
the few southern Maryland districts
thus far heard from.
Roosevel has made a sorry showing
In southern Maryland and on the east
ern shore, while Taft has run far behind
the Hull Moose candidate in Baltimore.
The poorest showing of all was made'
by drier, Progressive, in the First Con
gressional district. The regular Repub.
Ilcans did not put up a candidate in this
district and the regular organization was
supposed to support him. In one pre
