WILSON f MAES
Democrats Now Have 412 Electoral Votes:
Progressives, 104, and Taft,
. 12 or 15 " l
T. R. JN POSITION OF POWER
New York, Nov. 6. The-latest returns from yesterday's -election
show that Wilson and Marshall have earned at least thirty-seven
States, with a total of 412 electoral votes; that Roosevelt has carried
'eix States, with an electoral vote of 104, and that Taft has carried
three, and perhaps iour, States, with only twelve or fifteen votes in
the Electoral College.
Aside, from the overwhelming sweep of the Democratic nominees,
the most interesting feature of the result is the capture by Roosevelt
of the election machinery in almost all the States of the solid South
and in many of those in the North in which he took either first or
second place. New York and Connecticut aretxceptions,
HEAM SECOND PARTY.
In a large majority of the States he is second, and this will put
him at the head of the second political party in the nation and give
him a power wielded by no leader save the President himself. As
the count proceeded to-day, Iowa, Kansas, and Minnesota were, found
to be wavering between Wilson and Roosevelt, with the former slightly
in the lead in all three. Placing these and Wyoming and South Da
kota, where the vote is close, in
the doubtful column, Wilson has
387 certain votes in the Electoral
College, Roosevelt 89, and Taft 12.
The control of the House of Represen
tatives by a majority of 100 or more
was early established. That the United
States Senate, held by the Republicans
by the narrow margin of 9 votes, also
will be Democratic after March 1. there
U little doubt. Colorado, Kansas, Ore
con, and Tennessee have elected Demo
cratic legislatures and will replace Re
publicans with Democrats. Colorado will
send two new senators to Washington
next J ear. Returns from Montana and
Xovada at a late hour seemed to favor
the election of two additional Democrats
to the Senate.
Cannon In Defeated.
In tho latest news from Illinois it was
found that not only had "Uncle, Joe"

SULZER WINS BY.
New York, Nov. 6. Swept to victory on
the crest of Woodrow Wilson's tidal
wa-e of popularity. Representative Will
iam Sulzer has been elected governor of
New York by a plurality estimated at
from I8C00O to 190,000. This was more
than twice the size of Gov. John A. Dlx's
plurality In 1910.
New York State will have a complete
Democratic government at Albany, the
Democrats having captured both branch
es of the legislature.
The Democrats retain their control of
the Congressional election .from this
State, the figures standing twenty-six
Democrats to seventeen Republicans.
Although Oscar, Straus, the Progressive
candidate for governor, polled 65,000
votes more than Job E. Hedges, the Re
publican gubernatorial candidate In New
York, the Republicans ran second to
Representative Sulzer in the State out
side or this city.
Gov. Wilson carried New York State
by a plurality estimated In round fig
ures at. 205,500, and he carried New
City by approximately 137.000. Al
though there were a few scattered
rural districts still to be heard from

the beginning of an enlightened policy
