TAZEWELL, VA.,
REPUBLICAN }
THUKSDAY, NOVEMBER 14,1912 ?NO. 46
FINAL RETURNS ON
NATIONAL ELECTION
On Analysis Surprising Results Are Shown
?Big Slump In The Bailors Is
Shown By The Returns.
Governor Wilson not only carried
bis own State, New Jersey, by a large
majority; but he carried also the
States of his opponents.
The not results of the g?nerai eleo
tlon were staggering to even the most
?anguine of Democrats.
Wilson and Marshall have the larg?
est electoral majority ever returned,
toe final figures being: Wilson. 426;
Roosevelt. ?0; Tart, 13.
Overturning big Republican majori?
ties in States never before captured
fey the Democrats in a Presidential
??lection, the Wilson-Marshal Presi?
dential ticket was swept Into office on
a wave that carried with it State of
Boos. Congressional seats, and the con?
trol of several Legislatures that will
have the opportunity to oust Republl?
E from the United States Senate,
add to the Democratic strength In
body.
Fresh evidences of a great gain In
the Socialist vote come to hand from
?nattered parts of the country. In
San Francisco, where the labor ele
tnent ha? long been strong in politics,
the Socialist vote Is trebled over 1908,
and In Los Angeles, where the Mo
?amara case has been a disturbing
element. It is quadrupled. The So?
cialist vote for members of Congress
and the Legislature is greater In the
aggregate than that for Debs.
The cause of woman suffrage made
significant advances. According to re?
ports received at tho headquarters of
the National Woman Suffrage Asse?
ntation, Arizona. Oregon and Kansas
toted to accord vites to women.
Woodrow Wileon has the unpr??
?*danted r?*c?rd of 4E9 votes In the
?lectoral college.
Colonel Roosevelt will be second,
With the electoral vote of California,
Pennsylvania. Michigan, South Dakota,
Washington and Minnesota for a total
Of 90. President Taft is third with the
States of Idaho, Vermont and Utah.
Roosevelt lost Kansas and Illinois,
which he had st? adily claimed from
the earliest report. But he gained
Minnesota when the vote of the "corn
fields" began to como In. The farm?
ers stood by Root cvelt.
Wilson got Iow:i by 16.000; he got
Illinois by 11,000. and It appears he
Will not have less than 10.000 In Kan
gas, although Roosevelt hart expee'ed
$0,000 from the S":iflower State. One
effect of tho loss of that State is the
defeat of Oovernor Stubbs.
The switch in Illinois and Kansas
was unexpected mid in both Instance?
was entirely due to the farming vote.
Tho rural dlatrietl swung; in behind
Wilson so effect'vely that the big
Roosevelt vote of the oltles was over?
e?me.
Wilson did not receive a majority
vote, hut his plurality WtH be around
8,600,000 and is r?>oord-hreaklng.
WILSON RECEIVED 6,473,963 VOTES
Roosevelt and Taft Combined Get
7.810,823 and Dehs 795,000?House
Democratic By 159 Majority.
Washington.?Figures on the na?
