LATE COUNT ADDS TO GOVERNOR WILSON'S LEAD
SPLIT IN PARTY
FACING THE WILSON
(Internal War Equal to Re
publican Trouble Ahead '
I of Democrat.
(Continued ?rom First Page.)
ipllsh enough In fulfillment of Demo
cratic, pre-election promises to satisfy
War Is Expected.
On the face of It. an achievement of
fhls soit seems almost Impossible. How
Wilson can conduct his office In a way
o meet the demands of the progressiva
elements of his party and not have a
Jtopelcss falling out with the reaction
aries of that party, few ore nblo to
discern. Many believe ho will be nt
war with one wing of his party In
Congress before ho has been In office
six months. He tanqot run things to
fcult Bryan and tho tlrvnn men and nt
'the same time get along with the con
servatives. If he tries to trim between
the lines and placate both factions, his
political fata limy be as disastrous as
that of Mr. Taft.
That the results of yulerday mean
the Progressive party hus come to stay
Is tho conviction here. Prompt and
forceful steps on the part of the Bull
iloose leaders will bo taken to perfect
organization all over the country and
prepaio for the campaigns of 19l and
Whether It Is going to be possible, as
some believe, to make tho Progtesslve
party the real Republican party of the
countiy or a Republican party renewed
rehabilitated, and strengthened
something yet to bo determined.
It Is npparent that there aio grave
difficulties In the way of un'on between
the remnants of the old Republican
party and the new Progressive party.
What many of the Progressive leaders
believe In that before four years have
passtd the Democratic party will be
irent lo pieces, that the Progressive ele
ments of the Democratic party will
Unite with the llutl Moose party, and
that the united Progressive elements
In 1916 will carry the country triumph
antly. PusMent Tuft has announrti! a call
to Republicans to rallv to the party
standard. It remains to be -seen whut
vill come of thK November J2 Is tho
day set for the Republican national
committee to meet In Chicago, on call
of Nutlonal Chairman Hides. ani
choose a candidate for Vice President
to succeed James S. Bherman. This has
now become u mere, formality. Hut
that opportunltr will he taken to dl
i uss plans for rehabilitating tho Re
publican party Is to be expected.
What Will Wilson Do?
What will be the course of Governor
"Wilson os President?
The Information hero Is that while
Wilson hus been lenient and has tried
to placate all elements since the Balti
more) convention, he Is going to bu his
own master when he eitH Into the
IVhltc House. Many believe he will j

lio will lit Involved In nartv hrolls tis
lilttcr as ever Grover Cleveland had.
The Information here Is that Uovernor
Wilson will leave Princeton for a rest
of four weeks. He will go to a quiet
lesort whose Identity Is not et dis
closed. He believes that If he Is to be suc
cessful as Chief Executive he must
selrct a strong cabinet. Tho selection
of this lii' Is going about with great
care, nnd z will consult many party
leadcis nbout It.
William Jennings Brvan, the man
who has made It posMble for Wilson
to win the Presidency, will be pi offered
the po.t of Hecictary of State. He
""111 bo given his choice either of that
plate oi of the ambassadorship to Ht.

The office of Attorney General Is one
which noveirt Wilson looks on as one
of the gifn . and must important In
the dm erniDf.it. He will trv to nlok a
man for that post who will measure
up to the requirements, Good reason
exists for the belief that Senator
o Gorman of New York can have ihis

to take the place without weakening his

Another man who will ho seriously
