RESIDENT TAPT RAN SECOND
New York, Nov. 8. Woodrow
Wilson won the electoral vote of
New York and William Sulzer was
elected Governor with the largest
Democratic majorities since Grover
Cleveland was elected Governor InH
1892. Both the' Presidential and,
gubernatorial nominees-wil -have
n plurallty.gr at least 160,0Q0.
It was tt dlvlslotf.of the Repub
llcan party that enabled the Dem
ocrats to win this victory, and will
give them the control ol the Now
York Legislature by a two-tniras
vote. Governor Wilson did not
hold the Bryan vote of four, years
ago, but the Democratic Iobb wbb
insignificant compared with the di
vision of the Republican vote.
President 'Taft ran Becond in New
York and if the election furnished
one great-real surprise It was in the
small vote for Theodqre Roosevelt.
The Bull Moose "landslide-did not
materialize, and in the- Industrial
cities up the State he did not get
nearly to vote the leaders of his
i-Darty predicted, and which the
DomiJcrats and Republicans fearedj
he would receive.

of Tariff ,Aritation.
HE SEES TROUBLE FOR WILSON
Columbus, O., Nov. 9. The fire
of party loyalty are to be kept
ab'aze on the altar of Republican
ism. Defeated, but far from discour
aged, President Taft already das
formed plans for holding together
and strengthening the Republican
The plans are indefinite and still
vague, but he declared to-njght to
friends who accompanied him
North from Cincinnati that the par
ty will continue to exist; that it
will be as active; as in the past and
that there is no reason ta believe
that Its chances of future success
are not excellent.
So far as the President's plan is
concerned, he hopes to see organ
ized a "National Republican Club"
entirely apart from the Republican
National Committee, which shall
cherish the principles of the party
and be a source of political activity
not only during election years, but
at all times.
The President spoke of the Re
nubllcan Club of New York, the
JJUUI1VUH XSIUU J Vn waf V..U
Hamilton Club of Chicago and oth-
er organizations similar in charac-
ter, and expressed the beliof that
through these' clubs Interest and
loyalty could be kept alive."
To a suggestion that he might be
the Republican party's nominee in
1916, the President replied with a
smile, but made no comment. He
laughingly repeated his Intent' m
of returning to Cincinnati ana the
practice ot law.
The President is convinced that
the task of President-elect Vllatn
will not be easy. He Bald to-nlj?ht
that be earnestly hoped Mr. Wilson
would not call an extra sesslin of
Congress to revise the tariff. He
wished, ho said, to see the prcpcn.
