Tammany Hall will have complete control of the state government, with Governor, the state officers and the Legislature. The third party remains the third party in this state. It cut into the Republican vote enuu^h to Ueteat Republican candidates, but it could not ?ttncl enough to land its own candidates even in second place. Go-ernor Wilson and Mr. Sulzer carried the state approximately by EX.000. Mr. Sulzer ran slightly behind Governor Wilson. Mr. Hedges held lecond place. while Mr. Straus was third in the contest for Governor.

Then the Serate stood 29 D-rr.ccrats to 21 Republicans and 1 Independent, and the Ass-mblv 86 Democrats to 64 Republicans. Last year the Democrats were ousted from corittol of the Assembly. which went heavily Repubucan. On fairly comolete returns the new Legislature showed 34 Democrats to 17 Republicans and 1 Progressive in the Senate and 102 Democrats to 46 Republicans and 2 Progressives in the Assembly. The Democrats retain their control of the Congress delegation from th:s itate. the figures standing 32 Democrats to 11 Republicans. Some -dea of the drift to Democracy is given by the fact that Governor Wilson carried the strongly Rrpublican cities of Rochester and Syracuse ?nd Mcnroe County. In which Rochester is. Mr. Sulzer carried Rochester. too, by a small margin. The Socialists lost heavily in Schenectady County. lost their Assembly man to the Democrats and now will be without representat.on in the Leg.s lature. WILSON SAYS A GREAT CAUSE HAS TRIUMPHED Princeton N. J., Nov. 5.?Woodrow Wilson gave out at 10:45 o'clock to-night a statement of what his victory meant to him. This statement was made in a telegram sent to National Chairman William P. McCombs, and was as follows: "I deeply appreciate your telegram and wish to extend to you and the members of the campaign committee my warm congratu lations of the part you have played in the organizat.on and con duct of a campaign, to-night, cut upon essential issues. A great cause has triumphed. "Every Democrat, every true Progressive of whatever alhance must now bend his full force and enthusiasm to the fulfilment of the people's hopes, the establishment of the people s nghts, so that justice and progress may go hand in hand.' The telegram from Mr. McCombs to which Mr. Wilson re plied was as follows:_,. v ' My warmest congratulations to you, our next President. You have won a splendid and significart victory. At this hour you appear to have received the largest electoral vote ever given to a Presidemial candidate. The indications are that your admin.s tration will be supported by a Congress Democratic in both branches." _^_ _ COL RCXDSEVELT BOWS TO WILL OF THE PEOPLE At 11.30 o'clock last night Colonel Roosevelt made the fol lowing statement: "The American people by a great plurality have decided in favor of Mr. Wilson and the Democratic party. Like all other good citizens, I accept the result with entire good humor and con tentment. As for the Progressive cause, I can only repeat what I have already for many times said: 'The fate of the leader for the time being is of little consequence, but the cause itself must in the end triumph, for its triumph is essential to the wellbeing of the Am-jrican people.'" He sent the following telegram to Governor Wilson: "The American people by a great plurality have conferred upon you the highest honor in their gift. I congratuUic:you thereon THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

SULZER THE NEXT GOVERNOR Hedges Outruns Straus by About 35,000, but Wilson Defeats Taft by Almost 200,000 in State?New Hampshire and Rhode Island So Close Mr. Taft May Lose Them?Many Democratic Gov ernors Elected in Record Sweep. Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, was chosen President of the United States yesterday. Swept into office by a Democratic landslide. he carried with him all of the doubtful states and many states firmly in the Republican column for years. Wilson's popular plurality bids fair to exceed the record one of Roosevelt in 1904?2,500,000. The New Jersey man carried thirty five states surely, giving him 390 electoral votes. He also pressed President Taft so closely in New Hampshire- and Rhode Island that an omcial canvass in each state may be needed to determine the final result. Colonel Roosevelt, who is second in the electoral vote race with 97, carried Kansas, Illinois, Iowa, Washington and Pennsylvania The President was third, with 21 electoral votes: Idaho, 4; New Hampshire, 4; Rhode Island, 5; Vermont, 4, and Utah, 4. But ol these he stood a chance of losing nine votes to Wilson if New Hamp? shire and Rhode Island switched. Partial analysis of the votes availablc show the striking fact that the combined Taft and Roosevelt votes would have swamped Wil? son in the nation as a whole. Early returns gave Wilson the Solid South, Maryland, Connec ticut, Delaware, Maine and even Massachusetts, the last named state by 25,000, estimated. New York swung to Wilson by almost 200.

Cincinnati, Nov. 5.?President Taft at 11 o'clock to-night con ceded the election of Governor Wilson. He issued the following statement from his brother's home here: "The returns insure the election of Governor Wilson to the Pres idency. This means an early change in the economic policy of the government in reference to the tariff. If this change can be made without halting prosperity, I sincerely hope it may be. "The vote for Mr. Roosevelt, the third party candidate, and for Mr. Debs, the Socialist candidate, is a warning that their propaganda in favor of fundamental changes in our constitutional representative government has formidable support. "While the experiment of a change in the tariff is being carrieu out by the Democratic administration it bchooves Republicans to gather again to the party standard and pledge anew their faith in their party's principles and to organize again to defend the constitu? tional government handed down to us by our fathers. We must make clear to the young men of the country who have been weaned away from sound principles of government by promise of reforms impossible of accomplishment by mere legislation that patriotism and common sense require them to return to the support of our Con stitution. Without compromising our principles, we must convince and win back former Republicans, and we must reinforce our ranks with Constitution-loving Democrats. "We favor every step of progress toward more perfect equality of opportunity and the ridding society of injustice. But we know that all progress worth making is possible with our present form of government, and that to sacrifice that which is of the highest value fn our governmental structure for undenned and impossible reforms is the wildest folly. We must face the danger with a clear knowt cdgc of what it is. "The Republican party is equal to the task. It has had no nobler cause. Let us close ranks and march forward to do battle for I the right and the true."
