LONDON, Nov. 6. The Times today. In
an editorial on the election results In the

Proceeding to pay the highest praise to

Manufacturers Declare At
mosphere Is Cleared, and
Look for Eventual Repeal
of Democratic Tariff.
The outlook for Improving business hns
been brightened by the Republican vic
tories on Tuesday, In tho opinion ex
pressed today by prominent manufactur
ers In Philadelphia.
Already tho atmosphere hns been
clcnrcd nnd the outlook for new business
i wns excellent. Part of the brighter out
look was due to Increasing orders -caused
bj the wnr nnd Europe's necessity to look
to the rnltccl States for goods formerly
Fears of further buslnc leglslntlon
were Mrtunlly nllnycd by tho Incrcnsed
number of Republican In Congress, man
ufacturers thought, nnd there was every
prospect that commerce would be given
new Impetus. Tho deep cut Into the
Democratic majority would put nn end
to business leglslntlon because the Demo
cratic m.ijorlly was not large enough to
pass tiny radical measures, since some
of the party members could not be count
ed on to back them.
BKTTER AI.RDADY, SAYS JOHNSON.
Albn B. Johnson, president of the Bald
win Locomotive Works, wns enthusiastic
In his declaration that business of all
kinds would benefit by the outcome of
"Tluro Is no doubt that the atmos
phere Is clearer than It was beforo
election," said .Mr. Johnson. "Already In
these threo days there has been an Im
provement. I believe that tho country
nnd business In this part of the Knst will
And Improvement because of the result of
tho election. I have been In New York
since Tuesday, nnd there I find that busi
ness men are very much pleased with tho
"They feel that the atmosphere Is clear
er and that there will no longer be any
piospect of radical leglslntlon. They feel
thej ate already half way up the moun
tnln nnd that they can sec Into the dls
tanco more clearly now.
"This vote the voto that returned Sena
tor Penrose and the other Republicans to
positions In the Government Is not one
made up of manufacturers or college pro
fessors. It wns the vote of all the people.
It used to bp their custom to sit back
and watch elections without giving them
much heed; they felt that, howovor It
went, their positions would not be nf
ferted. "But this year It has been tho vote of
all the people. They have felt the re
sults of tho present Administration for
the Inst eight months. They hnvc been
hit themselves this time. They havo not
believed thnt tho largo manufacturers
were the only ones nffoctod. It wns their
vote thnt caused the Republican victory."
Mr. Johnson wns nsked whether he
thought tho Impending revival of busi
ness resulting from the Republican
sweep was so near that the Baldwin
Works would re-employ men who had
been laid off during tho pact year.
"It Is a little early to discuss that
question," ho replied. "I forsce, how
over, a decided Improvement In business
NATHAN FOL.WELIVS VIEWS.
Nathan T. Folwell, of Folwell & Bro
was certain business would Immediately
feel the result of tho election Tuesday.
"There will be a revival very soon," he
said. "It Is becauso the Republican
victory has engendered a better feeling.
We can look for a Republican Congress
before many more elections nnd that
prospect will havo a good effect upon
business. Wo can look for a repeal of
the Democratic tariff."
Mr. Folwell believed the election of
Senator Penrose was part of the In
fluence which would old business.
"Senator Penroso made his fight on the
issue of protection," said Mr. Folwell,
"and the support he wns given shows
that it Is a popular one. The effect of
his election nnd thnt of other Repub
licans will be Immediate. Business can
go ahead now without the fear of any
further legislation adverse to It. The
effect of the Democratic tntiff has been
largely vitiated by the war; if It had
not been the country would have been
flooded with foreign-made goods."
REMOVES CAUSE OF DEPRESSION.
Walter Clothier, secretary of the Ket
terllnus Lithographic Manufacturing
Company, said he believed the Republi
can victory and the return of Senator
Penrose would go far toward removing
the causes ot business depression.
"Business certainly needed something,"
said Mr. Clothier, "and I believe that
the o'utcome of the election will Improve
conditions generally. I am a Penrose
man because I believe In protection, and
I think his return to the Senate will bo
one of the factors In Improving business."
Wallace D. Simmons, of the Simmons
Hardware Company, was unwilling to
say what effect he thought the outcome of
the election would have upon business.
He believed In regarding tho situation
with a nation-wide view, and did not ap
pear to feel that the present Administra
tion had been as detrimental to business
ns some of the other manufacturers be
lieved It had been.
"I never take sides In partisan politics,"
Mr. Simmons said.

Letter From Minister, De

Causes Laughter Among
300 Delegates at Convention.
Three hundred delegates from all parts
of New Jersey registered this morning at
the opening session of tho 24th annual
convention of tho New Jersey Woman
Suffrage Association, which began Its
sessions In the Camden Councils Cham
ber. Mrs, E. F. Kelckcrt, of Dunellen,
president of tho association, welcomed
tho delegates. After a reception and
meeting of the executive board the con
vention was opened with prayer.
The morning wns devoted to business
moetlngs Iteportn were read by Mrs.
C. P. Eaton, Jersoy City, secretary; Mrs.
Kdward Olmatcad, Elizabeth, treasurer,
and Mrs. Arthur Hunter, Montclalr, au
ditor. Considerable merriment was caused
when Mrs. Mnbel Fnrrad, chairman of
the Committee of Church Work, read a
letter from tho Itev. Clcorgo Donaldson,
of Cedar Lake, denouncing Miffrngo. Tho
nev. Mr. Donaldson wns replying to a
form letter sent out to New Jersey min
isters, asking what Uiey thought of suf
frage. Most of them replied favorably,
Mrs. Knrrady reported, and then read
Doctor Donaldson's letter.
"Ho Is known to be very rabid on the
subject of suffrage," Mrs, Karrady ex
plained when sho had read the letter The
letter was, In effect, as follows;
"I am moro of a biologist than a the
ologist. I know that neither man nor
woman Is a complete unit. They should
not bo too strongly Individualized. If
suffrage were In force the Stnto would
be the only Home. Suffrage will break
up tho Home. That Is one of the reasons
why I am opposed to It. I hope wo shall
never Bee suffrage In New Jersey."
A pronounced giggling rose In the hall
while Mrs. Farrady was reading the first
part ot the letter. When sho reached
Mr. Donaldson's prediction about freo
love nnd eugenics there were hearty
laughs. Mrs. Farrndy'H statement that
Mr. Donaldson was known to be "very
rabid," was the only comment the letter
provoked. No action was taken on It.
SutTrago In New Jersey In 1915 was
prophesied by Mrs. Felckert. It had been
indorsed by all political parties, she said,
and there seemed to bo nothing In tho
way of a victory. Mrs. Felckert an
swered tho nntl-suffraglsts' accusation
that suffragists would be better off help
ing the destitute In Europe than working
for votes by saying that votes for women
would be n potont force In putting an
end to wars.
