TAFT TO STAND
1 BY OLD PARTY
CINCINNATI, 0., No,v. s.—President
Tait at 11 o'clock tonight conceded the
election of Governor Wilson. He issued
the following statement from his broth
er's home here:
The returns insure the election of
Governor Wilson today to the pres
idency. This means an early change
In the economic policy in ref«
n> tue tariff. If this change can be
made without halting prosperity I
sincerely hope it may be.
The vote for Mr. "Roosevelt, the
third party candidate, and for Mr
Debs, the socialist candidate, is a
warning" that their propaganda in
favor of fundamental changes in
our constitutional representative
government has no formidable sup
port.
While the experiment of a change
in the tariff is being carried out by
the democratic administration, it
behooves republicans to gather
again to the party standard and
pledge anew their faith in their
party's principles and to organize
again to defend the constitutional
government handed down to us by
our fathers.
IST WIN HEIMBIKAXS BACK
We must make clear to the young
men of the country who have* been
weaned a*ay from sound prin
ciples of government by promise
of reforms, impossible of accom
plishment by mere legislation, that
patriotism and common sense re
quire them to return to a support
of our constitution. Without com
promising our principles, we must
convince and win back former re
publicans and we must reinforce
our ranks with constitution loving
democrats.
We favor every step of progress
toward more perfect equality of
opportunity and the ridding of so
ciety of injustice. But we all
know that all progress worth mak
ing is possible with our present
form of government and that to
sacrifice that which is of the high
est value in our governmental
structure for undefined and impos
sible reforms is the wildest folly.
We must face the danger with "a
clear knowledge of what it is.
The republican party is equal to
the task. It has had no notiler
cause. Let us close ranks and
march forward to do battle for the
Tight and the true.

President Taft tonight sent a tele

fOMPLEXION OF
NEW CONGRESS
WASHINGTON. Nov. •->.—Election re
turns were received fn Washington to
night with demonstrations which many
old observers said had not been equaled
since the civil war. Interest in the
presidential contest ran high, as did
that on the complexion of the next con
gress, whi<-h was not apparent up to
midnight.
Among the first returns cheered in
Washington was the word from Mis

been re-elected. He will undoubtedly
preside over the next house unless in

ancient arid honorable foe, Uncle Joe

THE SAX FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6. 1912
THOMAS R. MARSHALL OF INDIANA, ELECTED VICE PRESIDENT •
77i?s excellent portrait of Woodrow Wilson s running mate was taken by a Call photographer on the occa
sion of the recent visit of the governor to San Francisco to select Indiana's site at the Panama-Pacific exposition.
It is one of the most characteristic photographs of Covernor Marshall ever made.
Great Cause, People's Right,
Has Triumphed, Says Wilson
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. s.—Responding to a telegram from the democratic national chair
man asserting that Governor Wilson unquestionably was elected, the democratic candidate sent a
dispatch to SCr. McCombs as follows:
"I deeply appreciate your telegram and wish to extend to you and the members of the cam
paign committee my warm congratulations on the part you have played in the organization and
conduct of a campaign fought upon essential isssues.
"A great cause has triumphed. Every democrat, every true progressive, of whatever alliance,
must now lend his full force and enthusiasm to the fulfillment of the people's hope, the establish
ment of the people's right, so that judgment and peace may go hand in hand."
This was Governor Wilson's first utterance of a public character following his acceptance of
the reports that he had been ejected.
committee and father of the tariff meas
ures that made up the greater part of
the work of the present democratic
house, was made certain.
The only socialist in the present
house, Victor V L. Berger of Wisconsin,
was defeated for re-election by Repre
sentative "William EL Stafford, a repub
lican nominated on a fusion ticket, with
the democrats supporting him.
Down to defeat with Uncle Joe Can
non went Ebenezer Hill in the fourth
Connecticut district. Representative
Hill for IK years has been one of the re
publican tariff experts in the house and
a member of the ways and means com
mittee.
The senate has 60 holdover senators,
of whom 30 are republican and 30 demo
crats. Of the 36 other members 6 have j
been chosen, leaving 30 places to be I
filled. Of thp R so far elected, 5 are
democrats —Bankhead of Alabama, Mar
tin of Virginia. Vardaman of Missis- !
sippi, James of Kentucky and Randell
of Louisiana—and one is a republican,
Fall of New Mexico.
OTHER SENATORS TO BE WAJOD
The states from which the remaining
30 must be chosen are: Arkansas,
Colorado, Delaware. Georgia, Idaho, Illi
nois, lowa. Kansas, Maine. Massachu
setts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana.
Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, j
Nevada. North Carolina. Oklahoma, Ore
gon. Rhode Island, South Carolina,
South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West
Virginia and Wyoming.
Of these states Colorado, Idaho and
Illinois will choose two senators each
and the other states one.
As the senate is composed of 96 mem
bers it will be necessary for the demo
crats to elect 13 out of the 30 In order
to obtain a majority and for the repub
licans to elect 18 to procure that advan
tage. Of the 27 states, from whi. h the
new senators must be chosen, seven—
Georgia, Maine, North Carolina. Okla
homa, South Carolina. Tennessee and
West Virginia—are represented by dem
ocrats and the remaining 20 by republi
cans. The returns up to 1 a. m. give
little basis on which to establish the
strength of the parties in the next
senate.
SIMMONS IS RBVOMIXATED
Much interest attached to the report
that Senator Simmons probably had
won a renomination in the North Caro
lina primary today. Next to Senator
Bailey of Texas he is the senior demo
i cratic member of the committee on fin
ance. As Bailey's successor has been
j chosen by a primary, Simmons would
jbe in line for the chairmanship of that
most important committee in case of
democratic control of the senate.
Washington gave Theodore Roosevelt i
I 5.5T4 votes in a straw ballot election*

WILSON CABINET
OF DEMOCRATS
IRA E. BENNETT
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
WASHINGTON*. Nov. s.—Although in
dependent republicans aided largely in
his election, the cabinet of President
Wondrow Wilson will be made up al
most exclusively of the democrats who
not merely aided ia his election, but
who helped him win the nomination at
Baltimore.
Governor "Wilson. It was learned to
night, has told a friend of William J.
Bryan, that he would be glad to offer
the once "peerless leader," now de
throned by the rising of a new ruler of
democracy, the portfolio of secretary of
state.
The president elect made that state
ment to friends of Bryan even before
he was nominated, and he has repeated
it since. Bryan, when told of it, said
that he would not m4nd having the job
offered to him, but lie would not accept j
under any circumstances.
He appears to be the Roosevelt of i
the democratic party—standing on the
sidejines for four years, possibly pick- !
I ing flaws in the new ruler and possibly
falling out with him as Roosevelt fell j
out with Taft. It vas Bryan who "put!
one over" on Wilson at Baltimore by
writing into the democratic platform
j a pledge to but one term, and while j
Wilson has never adopted that plank I
as his own, it Iβ quite likely that it
will be forced home to him before he
is very long In the White House.
BRYAN WATCHES 1916
For Bryan, like Roosevelt, is already j
preparing for" 1916.
Unless Wilson is to have a disrupted
I democratic party on his hands he will
jbe forced to consider Champ Clark. It
jis likely that Clark will demand a
[cabinet appointment for Theodore Bell,
democratic leader of California, who led
the speakers fight at Baltimore. Bell is
said to have had corporation affiliations
in California and thia may prevent his
selection for a cabin* t post.
For secretary of state with Bryan
eliminated the man most talked of
among leading democrats is Senator I
O'Gorman of X'ew York.
For attorney general the leading men
under consideration are A. Mitchell
Palmer of Pennsylvania; Henry D. Clay
ton of Alabama, chairman of the house
Judiciary committee; Joseph E. Davis, i
member of the national- commission
from Wisconsin, and Louis P. Brandies,
the scientific, management lawyer.
SPRECKELS IX LIXK FOR POST
Should Brandies refuse to accept a
cabinet job recognition might then fall
on Rudolph Spreckel?, who organized
the Republican Wilson league, of on
Charles H. I'lane. ihe man who almost
became minister to China, but was re
called.
Albert J. Burleson of Texas is frankly
a candidate for secretary of agriculture.
For secretary of the treasury the
choice lies between Henry Morganthau,
who was treasurer of the Wilson cam
paign funds, and William G. McAdoo,
vice chairman of the national demo
cratic committee.
Other positions: William MeCombs, I
; postmaster general.
Dr. Harvey \\\ Wiley,»secretary of the
department of agriculture.
William R. King secretary of the in
terior.
Senator Gore of Oklahoma ran have
almost anything he wants from Gover
nor Wilson, hut' it is not believed he
will want a cabinet post.

i lowed the course of the voting from
the bulletins received at the Xew York
home of the president's brother. Henry
W. Taft, where she spent the day.
Early in the forenoon she received a
telegram from her husband, sent from
Cincinnati. She replied In a message
I which she told reporters was "not
worth publishing, it being of no sig

Mrs. Taft seemed in excellent spir

"Much as she may feel that her hus

will be very glad to have him more to

C IS FOR WILSON
XEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Woodrow Wil

from returns reecived from nearly
every election district in the greater

of the 3,093 districts outside of Xew
York city.
President Taft led Colonel Roosevelt
in the same districts by about 35,000

Wi'.'iam Jr., chairman of the
republican state committee, issued the
following statement:
"The result of the election in the
state of New York demonstrates one
thing—that the Roosevelt movement
was simply a republican bolt. With
all the frantic efforts that were made
to secure votes from the people gen
erally the result shows that practi
cally none but former republicans
joined the Roosevelt movement.
•The decisive victory of Taft and
Hedges over Roosevelt and Straus is a
! demonstration that the republicans ofl
j New York desii*ed the renomination of i
President Taft and that the delegates
from this state properly expressed the
preference of the republicans when a
iarge majority voted for Taft at Chi
