WILSON SAYS 6.0. P.
CANNOT FOOL LABOR
Cliaws llcptibllcnns With
Trying to Coerce Working
men With Tariff Alarm.
HK ASSAILS "OLD GUARD"
Opponents Seek to Kccstnhlish
In visible Government, Ho
tOKfl IlRANClt, N. J Nov. 4. PreiU
itnl Wilson, In his Iln.il iipcrcli of th
fttnpilffn. accused llio Itcpubllrnn lead.
tn of nttrmiitlnK to coorco tholr tm
ployooit to vote for the O. O. 1". and for
a protective tariff.
"Having despaired of an Imiue, they
r tilling the country with alarmi," he
mill to-day at Shadow Iiwn to a dele
gation of New Jersey voten. "They lire
not only fllllnir the country with alarms,
but they are attempting coercion of their
laborer. They Imagine that these men
are tut their own masters, and dare not
vote as they think, hut nt last. I thank
Ood. the American laborer la awake."
The President asserted that because
cTfry other effort to raise nn Issue had
failed tin Hepubllcan party had fallen
lck on the protective tariff, "the only
thin It ever could talk about." "They
Inow perfectly well," ho added, "that the
Industries with the highest protection
hac paid the lowest wages."
New Jersey's political situation waa
bandied directly. Any man voting for
the Hepubllcan ticket In thli Rtnte la
voting for "Invisible government," the
resident asserted, adding that he longed
to he In the light.
The. delegation at Shadow I.awn wm
made up of men from Jersey City, New
ark, Trenton and Princeton, whence came
a number of professors and atudenta.
Oov. Fielder presided.
Mr. Wllaoa'a Addrcaa.
The President aald in part:
"lnvlsiblo government never existed
In more hateful form that It has existed
In past years In this State of New Jer
tjr. and that Invisible government never
had more successful places of conceal
ment than It had In such localities as
Atlantic City, from whore the candi
date for Governor on the Republican
tide has been chosen, and It never re
ceived more successful and persistent de
fence than It has received from the news
papers which he owns and controls.
"When I see this unblushing, this Im
pudent uttempt to reinstate these forces
without any concealment of any kind
do you wonder that I would like to get
out again and denounce the whole crowd
as ! know them?
"If any man votes for the Republican
State candidates In this contest he knows
that he U voting for the reestablish
rat tit of Invisible government In the
State of New Jersey.
"Hut after all. my fellow citizens, the
thing that Is being attempted In New
Jersey I only part nf what Is being
attempted In the United Htates with
more and more transparency of purpose.
Look how the campaign has gone. First
(f all an attempt to set up some kind
of handsome Issue. Not a very Interest
ing uttempt. because the Issue was a new
one every week.
"As axw as you approached what was
said to bit the lsue It seemed to fade
and disappear nnd thcr was nothing for
you to grasp or grapple, and after
finding that Hie senrch for an Isauc was
In vain they came down once more to
the only thing they have In recent years
ver known how to talk about, and that
was the protective tariff.
'They know perfectly well that all
the pretences about the protective tariff
have been torn away, not by tho ora
tnnr nf h.mni.Miu ... t, . w
patent demonstrations of fact. They
niiow mai me worxingmen or tins coun
try may have been deceived for a lit
tle while. buL thv
all the time.
"They know just as well m we know
that tlm Itiflii.tfiAa Im
protection was given paid the lowest
wages, ana tney Know that the highest
wages were paid In the least protected
Industries. That Is n matter of record.
Not only lhat. they know that In some
of tho most highly protected Industries
the conditions under which the laboring
people lived were a disgrace to our civ
ilisation. "And now what do wo witness? Ilav
tnff desnalritil nf nn t.... . fin
ing tho country with alarms. They arc
i uniy nmng we country with
alarms, but they are attempting coercion
of their tahnrr Tli.u U..I...
these mon are not their own masters and
uuru uoi vote as uiey think, nut nt
last. I thank Ood, the American laborer
"He at last judges his friends by
what they do and not by what they nay.
He knows that he has found friends, be
cause ho has found men who will do tho
things that ha has demanded should be
done In Justice and qulty to him.
Control Xathlajff Bat Reltlatr.
"Let them fill the nlr nlih nhirnm
The alarms are their own. not ours. 1
They used to control the credit of the
country: they now control nothing but
the betting. So that I think as we look
back upon this campaign for we are
now looking back upon It. and ke are
now nothing but cries of distress as we
look back upon It we can see a very
heartening nnd encouraging thing.
"Wo can see tho American people at
last asserting themselves by rejecting
the old leadership under which they
wsre so long led astray and turning to
do things for themselves. The differ
ence between the Republican party and
the Democratic Is this: The Hepubllcan
party offers them masters; we offer
them comrades and leaders. The He
publlcan party offers to take care of
them: we offer to go Into tho light
shoulder to shoulder with them to get
the rights which no man has n right
to glvo to them. The ranks are formed.
"It was the duty of those who rep
resented tho Hepubllcan party, as It was
our duty, In their camtialcn to ex
the real heart of the social necessities
nnd the political exigencies of America.
Have they d no that? Have thev not
merely said that though the right things
had been done no doubt they had been
done by the wrong people? What differ
ence does It make who did them, whe ther
they were good looking men or ugly
men. whether they wero wise men or
unwise, whether they were schoolmaster
or sages? If they were dona and were
the right things to do, then eery man
ought to stand by them awl praise
Declares It a Crisis.
"It Is a crisis because some of the
fundamental things of the life of the
world have to hs determined. That Is
one reason why we have been saying
much by 'we' I mean eetbjdy who
has been discussing this rampalgn
about the apparent desire of some peo
ple to have our public policy determined
by Kuropean reasons and not American
reasons. We have seen that unless we
could unite and direct and purify the
forces of this country, we could not do
what It was ncess.tr- to do for the
world through the Instrumentality of
'Therefore we have lni-lsted with re
peated Inslstenco that the first thng to
do was to see that ever) body Intended
the same things nnd l.il the same
things and bellced In the same things.
All that we have heard frin our oppo
nents has been that thit they believed
In themselves. That Is not what r
wanted to kimw. Po they believe In u
also? Do they IsMleva In America also?
Do they believe that America by show
ing In her own politics that she means
what she sn)s about herself can bo
counted upon to mean what she says
about the world when the war Is over?
"It nmaaes me that men calling them
selves statesmen should discuss soinn nf
the things our opponents have been
dwelling upon when tho whole atmos
phere of the world was lurid with tho
blase of threatened trouble i men spread
ing tlnOcr In this country when sparks
without number were blowing over from
this terrible conflagration ', men making
party sport of unsettled questions, not
settled ones ; of present courses of ac
tion, not past rotirses of action : seeking
to make party capital out of things
which, If not settled wisely, might bring
this country nt any moment Into tho
world conflict which Is devastating
Isolated Nn Longer.
"The t'nlted States will never ngaln
be what It has been. The United States
was once In enjoyment of what we used
to call splendid Isolation. The three
thousand miles of tho Atlantic seemed
to hold all European affairs at arm's
length from us. Tho gtcat spaces of the
Pacific seemed to dlscloso no threat of
Inlliienco upon our politics.
"With this outlook Ir. It worth while
to stop to think of party advantage?
Is It worth stopping to think of how we
have voted In the past? Why. my fel
low cltliens. It Is an unprecedented
thing In the world that any nation In
determining Its foreign relations should
be unsclllsh, nnd my nmbltlon Is to see
America set that great exnmple, not
only n great example mornlly but a
great exnmiilu Intellectually.
"Is It not worth while voting for these
things, no matter how you have voted In
past years? You never had these things
to voto for before. Are you going to de
termine what you are going to )oto for
low by what you voted for In an era
lhat Is concluded and gone by? For my
part, I thank Ood that the era of the
Old Ouard has gone by. They never
ronce'ved or understood an unselfish pur.
pose. In tholr lives.
"Look at the Industtlcs which have
treated their employers) ns If they were
fellow men nnd human beings. Have
they not had better fnriorles and have
thev not made more money than the
Feels the Insplrntloa.
"So, my fellow citizens, I feel rising In
mv nulses already the Inspiration and
impulse which Is to come not only to the
United States but to tho world next
Tuesday. I do not Identify myself with
l i s. To me has fallen the unspeagauic
good fortune of happening to be the
siMikfsmaii of the American people at
this critical and fateful time.
"I do not know what Is wise. I can
not bo sure that I Judge right, but 1 am
sure that my heart epaks the same
thing that they wish their hearts to
speak. It Is only In this impulse, lit this
sympathetic connection which 1 am sure
that I have with them, that J am worthy
to speak for them nt nil.
Thtficfoie I can feel some of tha Im
personal Inspiration which comes from
events and circumstances llko the pres.
eut. Ill the da) 8 to come men wiil no
longer wonder how America Is going to
work out her destiny, for she will have
proclaimed to them that her destiny U
not divided from tho destiny of tin
world, that hr purpose Is Justice and
'ove of mankind."

la tlia unanimous belief of the mem
bers of tho National Campaign Com
mittee that Mr. Hughes will have at
least 100 majority In the electoral
college, and douhtlesa this majority
will be very much larger. I have
made this n-jwrt to Mr. Hughes this
afternoon, ns It Is based on report re
ceived from all over the country.
Bo far as the claims of our oppo- I
nentn are concerned, It Is perhaps not '
Improper to call attention to the fact
that when Mr. McCormlck was run
ning for Governor of Pennsylvania he
predicted a large majority for himself
In the Htatn, and on election nlgnt It
was found that he was not only de
feated In tho Htatc but he also had not
carried the city or tho district In
which ho lived.
These extravagant claims are the
Invariable accompaniment of tho
Democrats In Piesldentlal campaigns.
Our opponents have always elected
their candidates by a large majority
In '.lie days Immediately preceding tho
election, but they fall on election day,
and they will lamentably fall on Tues
livery Chnfrman Iteported,
Mr. Wlllcox's Rtatrment was made
after every Hepubllcan chairman In the
rnmtry had telegraphed his opinion of
th result In his State. As these reports
began to flow In from the wlies Repub
lican confidence began to go up by leaps
and bounds. The story these messages
told was of n pronounced change of
sentiment In many doubtful Htates; of
tho conversion of much of the labor
vote, of a awing around even of many
nf the trainmen. They told of a fight
Hindi) In the last, two weeks by the Ito
puhllcnn organizations In many Htates
such ns tho party has tcldom waged In
While Mr. Wlllcox absolutely re
fused to enumerate the Htates upon
which he based Ills prediction It Is
known that the Itrpubllcans expect to
carry all of the big doubtful Htates, In
cluding Ohio, nnd that they think they
have the best chanco now even In Ken
tucky, which would virtually mean a
dip down Into the South.
The Hepubllcan national campaign Is
oil over. Desks were closed at Hepub
llcan headquarters, pattltlotis wore re
moved nnd the whole place was made
over for the reception Tuesday night
Mr. Wlllcox's official statement marked
the formal end of the activities at head,
Perklas Aarees With Wlllcox.
"I thoroughly agree with nnd concur
In Mr. Wlllcox's statement and hnvo
nothing to add to It," said Cleorge W.
Perkins, who has been one of the chief
figures In running tho campaign.
Herbert Parsons, national committee
man from New York, believes that
Hughes Is to carry every Northern State
save Colorado, Montana and Nevada.
"In this Hlate," said Mr. Parsons, "Mr.
Hughes will have not less than 1SO.O0O
Mr. Parsons said that he based this
prediction on figures which he had re-1
celved and carefully gone ovir. In this I
city, Mr. Parsons predicted, Mr. Wilson
would not get over 3C000. Two weeks ,
ago Mr. Parsons estimated It nt Sn.OuO.
but he said thnt ho had good reason to
change his figures. These arc Mr. Par
sons's estimates on the city:
Manhattan 15,000 to 20,000 for
llrooklyn 1,000 to 6,000 for Hughes,
tlronx R.OOO to 10,000 for Wilson.
Richmond and Queens About nn
Hamuel H. Koenlg. chairman of the
Republican County Committee, will glvo
out to.day his tstlmntes by Assembly

"All I can ay to-day Is that. In my
Judgment, Wilson's plurality In Manhat
tan will be less than IS.OOO."
Koenlg believes that Wilson will carry
seventeen Assembly districts only.
