Democratic Gains In Vermont
and Maine Impressive.
OTHER PARTIES IN PLIGHT,
Third Termers to Poll Their Entire
Strength From the Rapidly Thinning
Republican Ranks — Indication! Are
That Taft Will Carry but Two Btatea,
That the results of the state elections
In Vermont and Miiiue mean a tremen
dous Democratic victory in November
Is freely admitted by all except the bit
terest partisans. Political experts have
done much analyzing, and some claim
to have reached novel conclusions. But
these facts stand out:
On Monday, Sept. 9, 1912, the Repub
lican and third term parties combined
elected William T. Haines governor of
Maine over Frederick W. Pluisted, the
present Democratic Incumbent, by
8,023 plurality; in 1908, a presidential
year, a Republican was elected gover
nor by 7,053 plurality; In 1904 the plu
rality was 25,800. and in 1900 it was
34,132. In other words, in twelve
years the Democrats have cut down
the Republican plurality in state elec
tions by 31,109.
Id this period the Democratic vote
has increased from 39.000 to 68,000,
whereas the Republican vote has de
creased from 74,000 to 71,000 The
Democratic vote of this year exceeds
that of September, 1908, by 1,000, but
the Republican vote is about 2,000 less
than that party cast four years ago
The split in the Republican rnnkß.
following the election of William T.
Haines, is pronounced If the divi
slon in Maine in November is as it
was In the recent Vermont election
six-tenths of the Republican vote will
go for Taft. three-tenths for Roose
velt and one-tentb for the Demo
crats. It is significant that the latter
party has to date suffered no losses,
as compared with the vote in previous
years, from the third term move
ment. On the contrary, it has gaiued.
The result In Maine may be expected
to be something like this: Wilson, 74.
--000; Taft, 42,600; Roosevelt, 21,300.
The returns from the recent Vermont
election show In round figures that
the Joint Republican and third party
vote was 8 per cent short of the Re
publican vote four years ago, while
the Democratic vote In that state
shows a gain of 25 per cent over that
of 1908. It Is of special Interest to
speculate what will happen next No
vember throughout the nation if the
Republican and Democratic vote for
the national tickets happens to be af
fected as the gubernatorial vote this
month In Vermont has been affected
The New York Post has done some In
terestlng figuring along this line, and
as a net result it is shown that under
the contingencies mentioned President
Taft would carry only two states in
November, Rhode Island and Vermont,
all the others going for Governor Wil
son. The conclusions reached by the
To compute this result we should
have to deduct 8 per cent from the
rote cast for Taft four years ago and
apportion the remaining vote In the
ratio of 62 to 38 between Taft and
Roosevelt, and we should have to add
86 per cent to Bryan's vote In 1908
and give the "demnition total" to
Woodrow Wilson—ln other words, give
Taft 57 per cent and Roosevelt 85 per
cent of Taft's vote four years ago
and give Wilson 125 per cent of Bryan's
vote four years ago
The result in round numbers would
be as follows, so far as regards Taft

TIME RIPE FOR CHANGE
Says No One Can Safely Challenge the
Soundness of the Views or Leader
ship of Wilson and Marshall, Who
Have Been Before the People.
By JOHN D. CRIMMINS,
[Noted Philanthropist and Irish Amer
ican Leader.] 4
At the outset of an argument In rela
tion to the nporoachinc election for
president and vice president we must
view what lias caused the great upris
ing In the country In connection with
oar economic affairs and the adminis
tration of our government in so far as
as it relates to that subject.
There Is no defence offered for the |
extensive privileges created by the
tariff preferences through the Repub
lican party and the favors to the
privileged classes and corporations.
While wealth has accumulated under
these preferences, a fair field and no
favor has been denied to the masses.
We cannot expect remedies from
men high in office who in their entire
life work have been associates and
participants with the favored class.
Mr. Roosevelt during his entire career
in politics and as the head of his
party has been the protector of many
trusts that the tariff has nourished
and fostered, nor have we found him
in the seven and oue-hnlf years of his %
official life as president strenuous in
removing tariff Iniquities and inequali
ties. Mr. Taft in his acts and utter
ances is v party man, believing in a
protective tariff, nnd would, if elected,
defend what to many minds is the su
preme cause of unrest.
Free From Evil Associations.
In Ml. Wilson and his associate, the i
candidate for vice president, we have
two men who have had no associations
with the privileged class, who have
never been in a position to grant or
accept favors or to participate in any
measure that could possibly relate to
their personal welfare or increase their
Incomes. In the respective professions
that these two gentlemen have occu- ,
pled they have been day laborers,
working at their desks as many hours
as the workman who is industrious
and faithful to bis task.
The very fact that they have been
selected as candidates for the office of
president and vice president of these
United States Is an Illustration of one
of the great boasts of the American -
people that the man who is faithful to "^
his trust, honest in his work, fearless
and courageous in his opinions, will In
time be noticed and receive a reward.
They have watched with concern every
side of our political life that enters
Into the government of our people,
voicing their approval or disapproval
of situations as they arose. "
Ara Typical Americans.
No one can safely challenge the
soundness of their views or their lead
ership where economic questions enter
Into our governmental affairs. They
are typical Americans.
Governor Wilson and Governor Mar
shall nave both been before the people
when they received the approval of a
majority of the citizens of their re
spective states for the high office of
governor. If it be the good fortune
of the country to have these two gen
tlemen occupy the presidency and vice
presidency of these United States we
have the assurance that in their deeds
and acts they will labor to remove the
unrest that has been created in the ad
ministration of our governmental af
fairs and that there will be equal laws
for all the people and not special laws
and special protection, and that the
highest ideals of a government of the
people, by the people and for the peo
ple will be brought Into fullest realiza
