college to be built away from the main

Mr. Wilson was elected governor of
New Jersey by a plurality of about
50,060. The platform on which he ran
contained much that is called radical,
and up to this time the governor had
been regarded as conservative. But he
stood forth square on the platform ana
dedicated all his energies and abilities
to the carrying out of every pledge
contained in that platform.
As a natural consequence he at once
found himself opposed by the reaction
aries in the legislature, members of his
party as well as others.
He notified the people not to vote
for him unless they wanted him to be
the leader of the Demoeratiu warty In
New Jersey, for such he rareii intended
t & if elected.
The booses paid Httle attention to
this. They had heard something like it
before, perhaps. But the governor bad

Princeton has been called a country
club for rich men's sons. However,
much or little it deserves this appella
tion, the fact remains that it possesses
more exclusive clubs than any other
great institution in the country. There
is a whole street of them and yet their
total membership is confined to 3S0.
These clubs are composed exclusively
of the two upper classmen. This caddish
aristocracy, abhorrent to the American
spirit and equally abhrrrent to presi
dent Wilson, had flourished at Prince
ton for years until that institution
was little more than a lounging place
for the gilded sons of the rich. Dr.
Wilson went In to change the whole
thing. He 'proposed the establishment
of the students on quadrangles and
"Quads," each one to be composed of
a certain number of students from each
class together with perceptors. In
other words, he tried to inject demo
cratic spirit into the universitv life.
Immediately be was denounced as a
"leveler," a "socialist," a man who
wanted to "make a 'gentleman' chum
with a mucker." At first the trustees
had approved the "Quad" plan by vote,
but when this storm of protest and
abuse broke they were frightened into
withdrawing their approval.
Then there was a long fight over the
graduate college, in which instance a
donor wanted to dictate to the trustees
how his money was to be used. Dr.
Wilson caused the trustees to refuse
the donation and then another storm
broke over his head for daring to re
fuse money for Old Nassau.
But his efforts went to naught An

The most serious clash between the
will of the governor and the will of
the reactionaries in the legislature
was over the primary election law,
commonly called the Geran act.
Those who have kept an eye on New
Jersey pontics will recall the dramatic,
although, quiet, entrance of governor
Wilson into the caucus of the Demo
cratic members of the legislature, who
had gathered to perform the last sad
rites over the Geran act and tenderly
lay it in its grave. The governor lis
tened, to the funeral speeches of the
various members until they had all
had their hearing and then he took the
With not even so much as a note
by which to guide his thoughts, the
governor talked to those lawmakers
for three hours. Those who were pres
ent say they will never forget that'
occasion. In even, conversational tones,
but with a vibrant persuasive quality
in his voice that thrilled everyone, the
governor talked the members out of
their position and the bill was reported
favorably, and thus New Jersey has an
election law as advanced as any state
in the union '
Then the New Jersey legislature,
mastered by its governor, proceeded
to enact reform measure after reform
measure, and before it had concluded
its first session under governor Wil
son it enacted into law such progres
sive measures as "The corrupt practices
act," the employers' liability act. a
most excellent public utilities act, a
municipal commission government law,
which gives any city in the state the
right to adopt a commission form of
government if it so desires, and the
! sterilization or anti-procreation act.

In the state primary election, how
ever, James Martine had received a
large majority of the votes in the
state. Smith's name was not on the
primary ballot. He had neglected to
put it there, thinking that when the
time came for the legislature to elect
a senator all he would have to do would
be to notify that body that he desired
to go to Washington, and the thing
would be done.
But again governor Wilson stepped In
with his masterful will. Again he re

returns flashed from the balcony of
the McCoy Hotel to the front of The

From 6 oclock, when the first bulletin
was flashed upon the screen, giving the
news that state Republican chairman
William Barnes, of New York, had con
ceded that state to Wilson, throughout
the evening, the cheering was lively.
When the fire whistle at 7:19 blew the
news of the election of Wilson, as
flashed to the powerhouse by The Her
ald by previous arrangement, there
was a cheer that fairly made the build
ings shake. About this time the pictures
of Wilson and Roosevelt were flashed
upon the screen and there were more
cheers. The picture of Roosevelt,
strangely as it may seem, elicited more
prolonged and enthusiastic applause
than that of Wilson.
There were 4500 people by actual
count in the plaza through most of the
evening, eagerly watching forthe re
turns, notwit 3tanding that early in the
evening, the election of Wilson .had
been assured. It was a good natured
crowd and there were many exchanges
of pleasantries between friends of dif
ferent political faith. "I told joq so."
"How does that hit you?" 'Now will
you be good?" and "-Where is your Taft
vote now?" were some ot the things that
friends bandied at each other as they
applauded a bulletin showing a Wilson
victory in some state or city.
There was much anxious waiting for
the returns from Pennsylvania and Ohio,
the Taft men holding out hope that
these would be strong for their candi
date, but the returns did not give them
much satisfaction, even from the first.
Whistles of surprise from many
mingled .with cheers from others as

There was much wild cheering when
the bulletin flashed the news that
Roosevelt had carried Illinois. It was
clearly apparent throughout the even
