The Roosevelt votes, and there will be

A Journey taken late this week before

Brunswick. Elizabeth, and Trenton
proved convincingly that Roosevelt Is
going to get an astonishing vote In Gov.
Wilson's own State. All these towns
are manufacturing centers, and the great
army of working men employed In them
will give at least half of their votes to
Roosevelt, whether they be Democrats or
Republicans. This Is the belief of lead
era of all parties.
The ten States covered by the writer
have 221 electoral votes among them,
enough with the sure Wilson votes In
the South to give Wilson the victory.
This Is without reference to any far
Western States or to New England.
Ok(o for Wilson.
In Ohio most of the politicians believe
that Taft will be a bad third, and half
of them Concede that Wilson will carry
the State. The Wilson forces have James
Cox, the candidate for Governor, to help
out the ticket. Cox is far stronger than

Any one who can get any prophecy out

The antl-Penrose ote, which haa
been built up vastly by the revelations
in the Standard OH letters In Hearst's
Magazine, has killed the Taft hope of
running second. The Roosevelt strength,
however. Is divided. The Democrats are
getting a lot of it.
The Roosevelt strength Is weakened
by opposition to Bill Fllnn, the Taft
strength by opposition to Penrose. And
If the Democrats sit tight and poll their
own vote the chances of carrying the
State are excellent.
In New York Wilson's chances are

Indications that the Democratic candi

Democrats Appear United.
Barring a Roosevelt landslide, the
colonel has a fair chance of getting
electoral votes only In Illinois, Michigan.
Minnesota. Ohio, and possibly Indiana
of the ten States In question. He will
not get these If the Democrats hold their
own. And It must be remembered that
while Democrats sometimes scatter when
there Is no hope of winning, the prospect
of victory unites them like brothers.

Instead, the people gave him a Repub

"Government doesn't consist of agita
tion. Ail that I have been for lou has
been a spotlight. I have simply tried
to follow with exposure the people and
the things that ought not to be permitted
to have any Influence In New Jersey
And it has been very Interesting how
many gentlemen decline to come on the
stags because of the danger of having
the spotlight turned upon them.
"I have com to the various audi
ences that I have had the privilege of
addressing this time In New Jersey with
this plea on my lips: 'Do not send me
to Washington unless jou Intend to
back me up In Washington. It will do
ou very little good to elect a man
President whose programme )ou believe
in. unless you make the programme pos
sible by seeing to It that ou do ever)
thing In lour power to give him a House
of Representatives and a Senate that
will back him up.
Will Stay on Job.
"Are we golrg to do what we can to
put another Senator In the Sena'e from
New- Jere. and are we going to back
the Governor up during the remainder
of his term In his effort to complete the
process of reform which Is not jet fin
ished In New Jerey?
"Give me a Democratic Legislature at
Trenton, and I shall stay on the Job and
complete things I started out to do.
"Look what I am fighting for. I am
fighting for a Democratic control of the
government of the United States. That
ii what 1 am fighting for.
"If I knew that I could mjself gain
the Presidency, providing I could take It
without the support of the two Houses
and had my choice In the matter, I
would decline to take it. It would be no
doubt a notable position to occupj,
but it would be desperatelj lonely. And
not oni that, but It would put a man in
position which ought to break any
man s heart, if an thing will, a position
ot knowing what ought to be done for
:hr neonln of the United States and lone-
I lng to do It and being absolutely power
less to accomplish It.
The Governor was to have spoken at
Rehoboth also but the trip was aban
doned because of the cold. The Governor
v.as chilled to the marrow- by the trip
from Long Branch to Red Bank. How
ever, he finally decided to motor back
to Princeton, a distance of fifty miles,
and left shortlv after 10 o'clock In a
limousine and wrapped In a heavy fur
coat. The balance of his partv was
marooned in Red Hank for the night.
