Chairman Republican National Commit
tee NEW YORK. Nov. 2.-(SpeclaJ)-Wood-row
Wilson closed his campaign In New
Jersey, appealing to tho voters to elect
only democrats to tho stato legislature
Including James Smith, Jr.'s nominees.
Here as elsewhere wo find Doctor Wil
son able to adjust himself to political ex
pediency. Owing his nomination for gov
ernor largely to ex-Senator Smith's In
fluence, he threw over Smith when It
became politically expedient for him to
do so. Now, however, Wilson appeals
for the election of Smith legislative can
didates, that they may be bound by tho
democratic cnucus and thus gained for
the democratic candidate for United
States Senator In New Jersey.
That makes even Mnrno Henry Wattcr
son and Colonel George Harvey wink and
Doctor Wilson has said, in In excusing
the failure of his administration to reg
ulate tho trusts In New Jersey, that the
republicans controlled the legislature.
That ts another of his campaign qulb.
bles. In the New Jersey legislature of
1911, the first after his election as gov
ernor, the democrats had a majority of
twonty-four In the state assembly. No
Vigorous attempt was made on their part
to pass an anti-trust law and daro tho
republicans to defeat It In tho state Sen
ate. Doctor Wilson has declaimed asatnst
tho trusts whero thero are none, but hu
has applied tho Boft pedal In his treat
ment of them In Now Jersey. None can
deny that Wilson has spoken equally
well' against free trade and for free
trado, for a tariff for revenue only and
against a tariff for revenue only. In
Pittsburgh, a large Industrial center, ho
spoko of restoring neatness and order In
the garden behind tho tariff wall, but In
other places ho has urged tho removal of
all tariff walls. The platform on which
ho stands states that the protective tariff
Is "unconstitutional," but Doctor Wilson
talks about "readjusting" tho tariff and
says he would not Injure any American
industry oh. my, no.
Where Does Wilson Stniulf
He has declared tho tariff question to
be the chief Issue of tho campaign, but
nowhere at no time has ho madu a .defi

He has been on tho fenco throughout
the campaign and ho will not come down
on the freo trado side until after next

demn President Taft for vetoing the de
structive, crude, political tariff bills

Dr. Wilson knows as wen as iud
.i, i th event of democratic success
at the polls the radical element of His
party would dominate the caucuses of
his party In congress onu w" -
legislation would bo undertaken Immedi
ately after his Inauguration. That radi

and playing politics. "Soak the other
fellow, but spare me," would be the cry
of democratic Interests, similar to ins
"upllfe" activity of George w. rei.."p
In tho third term camp.
Does any voter suppose that Dr. W l
son, if elected president, would veto uny
democratic tariff bill sent to him by
congress? Then why his evasion?

What tho Bulgarians always havo aimed
at Is tho occupation of tho province of
Adrlanople, which comes 'down to a line
between tho Black sea and the sea of

Tho Turkish troops might havo found
a way of retreat toward tho port of lto

now occupied by the Bulgarians. Over
12,000 Turkish wounded aro reported to
have arrived already at Constantinople.
The ambulanco services of none of the

with the work set them, and while all
the countries of Europe have sont con

post's correspondent with the Bulgarians.
The Turks aro displaying extraordinary
stubbornness, continually bringing up
fresh reserves and hustling them Into the
fight. Tho Bulgarians are showing a
complete contempt for death.
Now that the Turkish main army is as
good as destroyed the Bulgarian army

strengthened again and the assault on
the fortress continued with Increased
energy, according to the correspondent
of the Relchspost with the Bulgarian
The Bulgarian siege guns posted at
Kadlkeui on Wednesday bombarded the
Turkish works on the northwest front of
Adrlanople, of which TchaUJa fort is the
center. This fort, which bears the same
name as the line of defenses before Con
stantinople, Is the strongest of thoso sur
rounding Adrlanople, to which it forms
the actual key, and Its capture would
bring "bout the fall of the city. It Is
