These Democrats came to show that they were men who put America above party fealty. They came to express their em phatic disapproval of internationalism, waste, extravagance, incompetence and unchecked profiteering. The election was an avalanche of public opinion which swept the erstwhile leaders (?) of the Democratic party into political oblivion. following is a brief summary of results as they appear up to Wednesday noon: Harding has carried New Hampshire, Wyoming, Kansas and Montana and New York city by a majority of 2 to 1. Harding’s majority in Maine will be more than 75,000. Vermont is for Harding 3 to 1. Returns from half of New York state indicate that that state will give Harding 1,000,000 majority. Ohio is for Harding by more than 200,000 majority. Returns from the middle West indicate a clean sweep there with large majorities. Utah, Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon and the Dakotas are republican by good majorities. Republican majority in N. J. about 150,000. West Virginta strongly republican. Boston for Hard ing by 30,000 majority. Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, republi can by unprecedented majoriti s. The South appears to be solid for Cox.
