THDBSDAT, NOVEMBER' 7. Wf.
Xhe'retult of one of the most mcri
mompin Presidential contests u Wood
row Wilson. The American people
have so .'decided. .Mr. Wilson is an
unassuming man-of ability, a leader of
high .Ideals and, of statesman-like gift.
There is not any use speculating now
whether'' "the result of'' the election
would have been the same if T. R. had
not so maliciously split the Republican
party, wide open, and if a number of
conservative Republicans had not voted
for Gov. Wilson in order to forestall
a Roosevelt victory.
The fear has been expressed fre
quently during the campaign that, if
elected,, Mr, Wilson, would ruthlessly
cut 'the tariff, disturbing business and
checking prosperity. This fear is
groundless. No doubt that the tariff
will be revised downward on many
schedules but we hardly thmk that
there will be any rush or haste about
it Rather the reverse. For while the
Senate"'ny become Democratic through
the action o'f the State Legislatures
this coming winter, such majority will
be ery small and will include a num
ber of cautious Democrats, men sen
sithe of manufacturing and business
conditions, who will not approve any
radical action on the part of an ultra
"progresshe House and a President
who is reputed to be a bit of a radi
cal," VThe worst that can be said of Mr.
Wilson is that he' is a theoretician
that he lades practice. But to judge by
the moderation and restraint he dis
played during the campaign and from
his oft-reputed remarks:
"The business of the country is not
to be disturbed. Its" trammels, on the
contrary, are to be removed, and the
unjust and unequal privileges which
hae made it top-heavy and endangered
every wholesome thing about it are to
be removed, not by any drastic process,
but by the mere enforcement of justice
and fair dealing and the removal of
His alleged radicalism is apt to van
ish with the responsibilities he will
hae to shoulder. Nonetheless, having
constantly made the promise to revise
the tariff, such a revision is inevitable;
but unless the President-elect for-some
reason should call an extra session,
nothing could lie done until a year
hence, when Congress will assemble
for the first time under his adminis
tration, and by that time the business
interests will have had ample time to
discover whether Mr. Wilson is a
Themost loyal Republican who has
witnessed his standard-bearer go down
to defeat "owing to his steadfast zd-
herence to those great constitutional
principles which are the safeguard of
the republic may find consolation in
the fact that his chosen successor has
discarded the dangerously radical ideas
of a centralized government and at
tack upon constitutional methods.
In many respects it must be regret
ted that Mr. Taft was not given an
opportunity to'carry out the wise and
sane policies of his administration. Mr.
Taft has done faithful, honest, and dis
interested service for the nation, and
heleaves the country more prosperous
than when ihe assumed the duties of
his high office.
If there be any humiliation attached
- to the verdict o'f Tuesday it cannot
rest on Mr. Taf but upon those who
nave tinea to ao mm justice.
Homing has." occurred during Mr.
Taffs incumbency of the White' House
to alter-the- country's judgment that
no Jnan' entered upon the Presidential
tternt better. equipped tor the discharge
oi the dirties of that office. His tri
umphs have heen numerous, and his
failures left his honor untarnished. We
merely have to recall his negotiation of
the peace; treaties with England and
France, the odiumof the rejection of
x which""rests upon, actions abroad. And
though the Canadian reciprocity treaty
miscarried, bis part in the work will

; '" meats. His practical mode of admin

ateered this -coaatryT-clear of teriqoa
embroilment there. And in Central
America as well his tact Wl diplomacy
has saved the United States more than
a Pf ssing showing of the "mailed fist'
in order to restore peace.
.Mr. Taft' is not a. politician. His
failures are due mainly to this "de
ficiency" of declining to sacrifice prin
ciple' for popularity. He has given the
people who honored him a "square
deal," free from humbug and all that
which he himself tersely describes as
Wfflkm Smlaer. v
The Congressman, who as chair
man of the Foreign Relation Commit
tee of the House, made so enviable
a- record ' for himself, has added one
more honor to the long list of his
gratifying tchievements ''by his selec
tion to the chief magistracy of the
Empire State.' To defeat a man like
Oscar Straus in itself was a brilliant
success, but to outrun the Presidential
candidate of his party is vastly more
to his credit
Mr. Sulzer always has fought the
people's battle, despite ridicule, when
ever the people were sorely in need of
a friend or a champion of their cause.
It is his boast that he has never had a
boss, and it remains to be seen whether
as Governor of our greatest State he
will remain free from boss rule and
Almost the first thing Mr. Sulier
will be forced to do will be either re
pudiate Murphy and all the interests
that back him, or to take his orders
from the Tammany boss. It must not
be forgotten that on the ticket which
has been swept in with Mr. Sulzer are
scores of men who acknowledge Mur
phy as their boss, and that this same
man "bossed" the Legislature. What
is Mr. Sulzer going to do? It is either
"crawl" or "war."
He is confronted by a very difficult
problem, and we shall interestedly
watch the new Governor's actions if he
is still desirous to retain his cognomen
of "champion of. the people."
Another thing. The Democratic
party now is absolutely committed to
a single term for President Mr. Sul
zer, on ine record ne-nas made in
this campaigned in fab', public career,
may be Democracy's choice for 1916,
providing he stands the test for the
next two years at Albany.
'Tawning" Her Babies.
At the Morrisania Police Court in
New York City the other day, a wom
an staggered in through a drenching
rain with an infant in her arms, a boy
of fhe, and a girl of six, grasping her
muddied skirts. Called before the mag
istrate this desperate mother said that
she had come to surrender her chil
dren to sae them from starvation. Her
husband was committed to an insane
asjlum six months ago. After a ter
rible struggle to keep her stricken fam
ily together with what she could earn,
she found herself unable to pay 15

while she worked. She had come at
last "to pawn her babies" that they
There is nothing new about this
extremely sad story. It is being repeat
ed in the lives o'f hundreds of poor
people everywhere. Destitute mothers
are "being compelled to place their in
fants in the care of asjlums, where
children are bereft of all that a home
means. We believe that the woman that
bears children is as much entitled to
their custody after the father has died
or been disabled as she was while he
lived and earned money for his fam
lily. Any mother is a mainstay of our
system of society, and society, there-
tore,-owes a comiortable home to
every mother and her children. The
able-bodied father,' reluctant to dis
charge his' '.obligation, must be co
erced by law, but when the father by
any cause is removed, society as a
whole, meaning city or State, owes
what the father no longer can supply.
