Princeton, N. J., Nov. 6. "I can't
lealize that it's true," Woodrow Wil
son, president elect, thug greeted fore
i.oon visitors today, who swarmed to
11 ib house to offer congratulations.
Among them were many members of
ihe Princeton faculty.
"I can't realize that it's true," re
peated the governor. "It hasn't quite
dawned on me. I had been in an im
personal atmosphere for the last
three months, reading about myself,
leading that I was to be elected, and
now I can hardiy believe it's true."
The governor rose at 10 o'clock. His
breakfast was interrupted by a con
stant stream of congratulatory mes
sages and the arrival of a huge cake
i-nt from New York by Henry N. Mor
enthau, chairman of the Democratic
national finance committee. On top
"f the cake was a horse shoe on which
v as inscribed, "greetings to the
wentj -seenth president" There was
.t'so a miniature white house over
r inch floated an American flag bear
ing a portrait of the governor.

Wlloen Says Nothing: te Fear.
io. Wilson this afternoon issued a

.'iere is absolutely nothing for the

Go. Wilson's statement follows.
The result fills me with hope that
:i" thoughtful, progressive forces of
the nation now may unite to give the

government released from all corporate

CUTTING DOWN ROOSEVELT.
I Heavy reductions in the early reports of a large plurality in Kaases akww
j Roosevelt's lead over Wilson had been changed to a small Wilson lead.
' Wilson's New York plurality is about 200,000 over Taft, according te latest
' figures, and William Sulzer (Democrat) was elected governor by about the same
1 number. Latest presidential figures give "Wilson 638,861, Taft 438,975, and Sooee
' velt 378,434.
In Illinois the heavy Wilson vote outside of Cook county had reduced Seeee
, velt's lead to about 15,000 as against the estimated 100000 or mere given "Mm last
night, upon the Chicago returns.
I The Roosevelt supporters declare that there is no reason te put PeansylvanJu.
I in the doubtful list, even though they admit that early reports of the cole-ncfs
j plurality had been exaggerated.
1 TEXAS'S PLURALITY LARGE.
The "solid south" rallied to Wilson as expected. His jzeA&kie plurafities as
' available in returns today were:
I Arkansas 60,000, Georgia 35,000, Texas 150,000. Florida 25,000, Kentucky
; 100,000 (plurality over Taft), South Carolina 50,000, North Carolina 60,000, Mis-
I sissippi 100,000, Oklahoma 15,000. The Roosevelt movement cut almost so figure
in state results.
yTAFT'S VOTE UNUSUALLY SMALL.
Not since 1820 has the principal defeated candidate in a presidential election
received so small a proportion of the total electoral vote as William H. Taft win
receive in the electoral college chosen at Tuesday's election.
Of the 531 electoral vetes, president Taft, Republican candidate for roconction,
will receive at most 15; Woodrow Wilson, Democratic candidate, will receive at
least 387 votes, possibly 430; and Theodore Roosevelt, ex-president, "Progreosive"
candidate, will receive at least 89 votes, possibly 129.
! Of the 48 states, at least three-fourths will cast their electoral votes for Wil
son. Rsevelt witt receive the votes of four te eight states, while Taft will re-
ceive the votes of only three, or at most four states, all with very small electoral
. TEE POPULAR TOTS.
On popular vote of the aaffen at large, the shewing is. very different. Wilson
received considerably. less than one- naif of the popular vote, perhaps not ovst
one-third; while Taft. may run second is popular vote whek thereout is complete,
though Reeeevelt seems to have the beat of it even in the popular vote.

SENATE AND HOUSE
ARE BOTH DEMOCRA TIC
Washington,' D. C, Nov. 6. With an overwhelming Democratic majority in
' the house of representatives, returns today indicate a probability of the success of
a sufficient number of Democratic senatorial candidates to give the Democrats
1 control of both branches of congress.
f A .gain of two Democratic seats in the United States senate was assured by the
J returns from Delaware and New Jersey. The legislature of Rhode Island probably
' will be Democratic, insuring a Democratic successor te Wetmore, Repubacan, re

In the present Hght, 44- of the 96 senators may be assigned definitely to the

Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Virginia, and the nine te be chosen
from southern states in which Democratic legislatures are supposed to have been
To insure ihe 49 votes neecssary to control, there must be a further gain of
1 five senators, all of which-must come from states new represented in- the senate
by Republicans, unless West Virginia be counted in the fist. The chances are be
lieved to be strongly favorable to the Democrats in Colorado (in which state two
senators are to be chosen) and in Montana and more or less so in Kansas, Nebraska,
Nevada and Oregon. Of these seven places still in doubt, any five wiU give the
