problems nor a single session of con

PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT
"The people of this country know
what they want and can get it. but it
must be obtained by long processes, In
■which the generations to come will play
so large a part. I summon you through j
to the rest of your lives to support men I
who look ahead to the final solution
of our problems."
When the cheers had died away Gov
ernor Wilson stood with bared head
and joined in singing "Old Nassau. , "
At midnight Governor Wilson re
ceived a message of congratulation
from President Hibben of Princeton. It
was as follows:
In the name of Princeton uni
versity I extend to you the con
gratulations and best wishes of
your alma mater upon your election
to the presidency of the United
States.
Mrs. Wilson and the Wilson girls
■were more excited over the returns
than the president elect. The wife
and daughters of the governor presided
over the bulletin room and all the re
ports passed through their hands be
fore reaching the man of the moment
at Princeton.
COXGRATILATED BY WIFE
As the big clock in the library of
the Wilson home chimed out the hour
of 10 Mrs. Woodrow Wilson placed her i
hands upon the shoulders of her hue
band and kissed him.
"My dear, I want to be the first to
congratulate you," she said.
The governor was standing with his
hands folded and his back to the open
log fire. It was the first definite word
that he was the president elect of the
United States.
Next to congratulate the governor
were his three daughters Miss Mar
garet, Bessie and Eleanor Wilson. Bub
bling over with happiness, the presi
dent elect fondly embraced each of his
daughters.
■'Dad," said the youngest of the
girls, rushing into the governor's study
the eastern landslide was told,
■you are elected."

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
NEW YORK. Nov. s.—While many of
the suffragette leaders usually to be j
seen at various headquarters of the or- ]
ganizations in this city were still away
from town returning from campaign
tours, those in town expressed them- >
selves as extremely gratified by the
voting in all parts of the country.
"The cause is making steady and cer- j
tain progress," said Mrs. Harriet Stan
ton Blatch. "The voting today shows
that women who have been given the
ballot have not to be led to the polls.
The voting in states to which suffrage
amendments were presented shows elo
quent gains."
"Everybody seemed to be deeply in
terested in the polling of the women
citizens of California, Colorado and
Utah. The big poll of Wyoming women
was also commented on as proof of
women's desire for the suffrage—the
point of doubt upon which most stress
teems to be laid by the "antis' of the
east."

P ESULT FAILS
iV TO STIR WOMEN
One of yesterday's most Interesting
aspects was the attitude displayed by
the women voters when the returns
from the election on the constitutional
amendments, initiative measures and
referendum propositions 'were read to
them before the San Francisco center
last evening.
Indefatigable as they worked in the
last few weeks to defeat some of the
bills and to- further others, their in
terest seemed to have abated with the
close of the campaign and even those
measures which had most attracted
their attention failed to arouse more
than passing interest.
Two hundred women gathered in the
rooms of the Forum club, where, under
I the auspices of the San Francisco cen
ter, Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt gave the
I one public address of her brief visit
Ito this city.
At the conclusion of the talk Mra.
Ellis James Tucker rose to Inform the
gathering of the election results.
Whether it was because they knew
the returns were only partial or wheth
er the tedium of the long day of watch
ing at the polls had exhausted their
energy, they remained passive a< the
returns were read.
