Island, speaking in twenty places. Afte
his trip on Long Island he returned to New
York and spoke to tlireo meetings at
Seward. Hamilton Fish and Tompkins
Mr. Sulzer and his party had a narrow
scape in tho morning when the train was
u few miles east of Deer Park. When
travelling at fifty miles an hour the train
crashed into a push car loaded with ties.
Italian laborers who wcro pushing the
car saw the special in time to Jump and
escape injury, hut tho ties and handcar
were demolished. The passengers on the
train were thrown forward by tho sudden
stop and rushed from the cars to find what
had happened. Tho pilot of the locomo
tive had been twisted into junk by the
smash and it took some time to remove the
pieces from the engino before it could
After his last meeting the randldato
seemed pjeased over the results of the
campaign and gavo out this statement
"The verdict is now with the people. I
have made the best campaign I could and
feel conlldent of a Democratic victory
The vote will tell the story."
The eastern end of Long Island, in
spite of its Progressive party tendencies,
gave Sulzer a warm reception. His first
large meeting of the day was at Oreen
port a little before noon. Here the party
eft the train and Sulzer spoke from the
ste(s of the drifting Hotel. Tho candi
date was introduced by eighty-year-old.
Fxiitor Eaves of the (Jreenport Htpublican,
who served wit li Sulzer in the legislature.
Sulzer took up the issues of good roads,
waterways and game lawB here, saying
"Uocxl roads, the continued conserva
tion of human life, of our natural re
sniirce and the constant improvement
of our waterways apieal to inn now as
they have in the past, and will havo ray
earnest support and attention."
Riverhean gave the candidate another
good reception. He spoke in tho Audi
torium for half an hour and dealt largely
with the local ticket.
Southampton greeted tho candidate
with too people, to whom ho said:
"The people fiellevo In themselves and
thorn is nothing that argueu so well for
the future or our country as the tact that
they are taking control of the (Jovemment
themselves-. They understand the issues,
they are alive to the situation and they
behovu in democracy more tluin ever
Uforo. And when I uso the term democ
racy It Is In tho generic and not the politl
cul sense."
Coming In an hour late, the meetings
at Centre Moriches, Sayville, Isllp, Lln
denhurst and Amityville .were small but
enthusiastic. Tho train reached Free
port, however, just in tlmo to catch
peoplo after dinner, and the candidate

Mr HiiIat ran into one suffragetto at
Hieksville, when he addressed a small!
meeting in the morning. She stood upon
a locomotive mid waved, two yellow
flags while the candidate spoke, while

As the train pulled out of the station

Gov. Wilson ended Ills campaign last
night with speeches at Paterson and
Passaic In behalf of local candidates
for Congress, the New Jersey Senate
and tho Assembly. Then ho hurried
into Newark by automobile and caught
a train for Princeton, saying he was
going home so as to be up and vote early.
His brother Joe, tho Nashvlllo. Tenn.,
editor, nd the Governor will get
election returns together to-morrow
In his addresses last night Oov. Wilson
more than onco indicated his confldenco
In tho result of the election. All tho
recent reris brought to him havo lieen
encouraging and it had been his intention
to retire early to-morrow evening and
read tho returns In tho Wednesday papers.
He appeared quite surprised when told
he was expected to May up a little later
than usual because some one might want
to know what he thought about things.
The high school building at Paterson
was crowded to the doors when the Gov
ernor appeared on tho stage after an old
fashloned'torchlight parade in his honor.
There had been a dinner at the Ham
ilton Club first. The Passalo meeting
was In tho high school too, and at both
places the crowd was evidently made up
of ardent supporters of the Governor
and the men for whom ho spoke.
Wilson told his hearers he came to plead
in behalf of those men he knew would
carry out the programme; upon which the
progressive people of tho State entered
two years ago when they elected him
Governor and gave him a Democratic
Legislature to help along the programme

has broken' in the last two years, Then he
told his audiences how ho regarded Mr.
Hughes, the eandklate whoso election
to the United States Senate is dependent
upon the regaining of tho Stato Senato
and Assembly by the Democrats.
"Tho question is," said the Governor,
whether or not New Jersey Is going to
adopt the means of carrying out the re
forms hhe started in 1011. I want the
State to keen tho Dlaco she has won for
herself during tho last two years, and 1,

everything they could to set back what

remains to bo done and it depends upon
what men you send to the Legislature
whether we go forward or backward "
Tho Governor 'touched again upon the
panio of 1803. and regarding his attitude
toward the business interests of thecoun
try'said: "There appears to be no impending
flurry of despair in Wall Street over the
prospect of Democratic success. Business
Is still to be dqne at the old stand, but
business will not Ih done in the same
way. In the event of Democratio suc
cess the firm name is going to be Tho
People of tho United States instead of
Special Privilege."
Tho Governor will get the election re
turns through tho same telegraph instru
ment that ticked out tho majorities for
Mr. Cleveland in 1M)2. The instrument
was sent to him yesterday morning by
Commodore F C. Benedict, who was with
Mr. Clovelond that night playing cribbage.

Cincinnati, Nov. 4. President Taft
was grwted by several thousand en
thusiastic fellow townsmen to-night
upon his arrival hero shortly beforo 8
o'clock. A brass band was at the station
when tho President's train pulled in.
There was also plenty of red fire and an
impromptu parade, was arranged to
escort the President to tho homo of his
brother, C. P. Taft. on Piko street.
Mr. Taft will oast his ballot to-morrow
afternoon at Precinct M of the Third
ward in wtich his legal residence is lo
cated. In the evening he will recelvo
election bulletins at the home of his
brother. The President hopes to play
round of golf in tho morning.
He will leave hero Wednesday after
noon for Washington, where he Is due
early Thursday morning. The Presi
dent's private car, the Ideal, was attached
to a regular train over the Big Four rail
road from Cleveland. Arthur I, VorjT.
Republican National Committeeman for
Ohio, boarded tho President's car at
Shelby and accompanied him to this city.
At the recjuest of tho Republican State
Committeo Mr. Taft made brief speeches
at several towns as his train crossed. He
spoko at Conneaut. Ashtabula, Palnes
ville, Cleveland. Wellington, Shelby,
Crestline, Gallon, Delaware, London,
Springfield, Dayton and Middletown.
At Painosvillo Mr. Taft discussed the
farmers cooperative credit system pro
posed by aiyron T.- llerrick, American
Ambassador at 'Paris, Mr. Taft said:
I want to congratulate vou on everr
evidence that I see of prosperity that is
Is spreid through your entire community.
The statistics of our forelen and domostlc
trade are startllnc mid they give everv
evldcnie that e aro colne on to irreater
and ereater tnaterhl growth and prosperity
mat Is no reason why we should stop In
attempting Improvements, hut It Is a reason
why wo should he philosophlral and accept
what is comlnc without crumbling and
sssumliiir thut ever) thing is bad. in other
words we ought to bo grateful for what we
have and struggle to get more of every kind
of benefit, material and moral.
I could go Into some subjects th.tt have
come to you re ently, especially through
your neighbor, .Myron llerrick, who lus
delved Into the question of Increasing the
credit of the farnilni: community with a
view to enabling them to better eutilp their
farms and borrow money at a rate from
i to 5 per cent, instead of from 7 to 8 per
cent. That does not sound altrulotic, but
it Is real business for the benetlt of the
entire community, because, my friends, our
mouths are lucre islng with a irreat deal
more certainty than the production of our
fields, ami If we go on as we are now for
fifty ears we will have to get our food
somewhere else. Now what wo ought to do
Is to learn how to make our llrld-s produce
One of the nieans of doing so Is to enable
the farmers to get the best equipment and
the best machinery They cannot do It
unless they borrow money at a lcs rate
of intercut, and if ws rati by banks and
cooperative arrangements among them
make their security nifilclent to attract
capital Ht c and 5 per cent. It will be a tre
mendous benoflt not only to them hut to
all the country That is done In Germany
and In rranre. Why should we not do it
here? I think we can.
Tho President touched briefly noon the
Rallcsn war in IiIb speech ut Shelby. He
We have been having In this country.
and I hope wo will continue to have, a
great deal of prosperity that will bring
comfort und happiness to the people, and
the contrast that makes with some other
countries of tho world Is tho one which
ouelit to make us very grateful for our
lot and lymphatlzo with peoples of other
counties who are now being- subjected to
the cruelties, tho burdens and the horrors
of war.

Washinotok, Nov. 4. The death of
Representative Utter, Republican, of
Rhodo Island, was regarded by poli
ticians here to-day as tho first event
tending to break the possible deadlock
in tho House of Representatives which
now prevails and which might prevent
it from choosing a President in tho event
there is no selection by the Electoral
Rhodo Island is one of the "tie States"
in the House, havina one Renutiliesn
Congressman and one Democratio. if
Utter's seat is not Illled or a Democrat
is seated in his place. Rhodo Island, as
a State, would be in the Democratic list
of the House.
There would then bo twenty-three
States voting as Democratic, twenty
two voting as Republican and three
still tied.
Twenty-five States aro necessary to a
choice. Utter was a candidate for re
election, so that whilo a political com
mittee can select a successor to him
for tho Sixty-third Congress, a special
election of some son must be hclefc to
name his successor in the Sixty-second
PnoviDKNCE. Nov. 4. Tho question
of a special election to fill the vacancy
for Congressman Utter's unexpired term
has not been settled as yet. J. Ellery
1 adson, chairman of tho Republican
co.nmitteo of the Second Congress dis
trict, said to-night ho believed the Gov
ernor will order the election at once,
in view of tho situation ut Washington.
He added that in case Zenas W. BHsb
is elected Congressman from that dis

Tills is President Taft's final word to
tho voters, sent yesterday to Tun Hvs:
"I havo no doubt as to tho issuo of this
campaign. Tho people will not be slow to
vindicate an Administration under which
there has been greater prosperity for
both the wage earner and thn wage payer
than ever beforo In tho history of tho
United States. They will hesltato to
turn over tho Government for four years
to a party which proolpltated a commercial
explosion by its experiments when last
It was in power, or to innovators who
have committed themselves to experi
ments still moro radical and doubtful.
National Chairman Hides of tho Re
publicans Htood pat yesterday on his pre
diction of the President's reelection and
Chairman McCombs of tho Democrats
saw no reason to withdraw his statement
that Wilson will carry at least forty of tho
forty-eight States.
Mf. McCombs said It was his honest
Judgment that Gov. Wilson would have
the greatest mnority given to any
President of any party since James Mon
roe swept the electors into 'tho era of
universal good feeling' in tho year 1820
of our Lord." Mr. McCoinbs said also:
"Tho campaign has been clean. Not a
bitter word, not an abuslvo sentence
has como from our candidate. Not a
tainted dollar has been received. Not
a doubtful dollar has been expended.
"Noissuehaabeen evaded. No question
remains unanswered. Tho Democratio
nominee has met the people face to face
with open mind and frank expression.
The people and tho nomlnco havo learned
to know each other and to trust each
"And in this wonderful campaign Wood
row Wilson has borno himself with such
gentleness, with such courtesy, with such
serenity of mind and temper and witlial
with such perfect fairness and convincing
earnestness in high discussion that helms
won Uio peoplo's minds and hearts for
himself and for his great cause, which is
their great cause as well."
For tho Progressives, Senator Dixon
snatched this from the clouds:
"I again repeat that tho avalanche
voto to-morrow for Roosovelt and John
son will stagger tho old timo politicians.
During Uio day we bnvo received literally
hundreds of telegrams from over xirt of
the country, all of them predicting land
slide votes in their localities for Roosevelt
"But you haven't said anything about
our old friend Tidal Wave," objected a
"Put him in too, if you want to." said
the cheerful Roosevelt chairman. Then
he went on:
"The expressed determination of the
Taft organization to name no candidate
for Vice-President until after the election
will cot,t tho Taft ticket thousands of
votes in every Stato to-morrow. The
peonie oi tno nation nro not going to sub
scribe to a blind pool in tho matter of
Presidential succession. It
error on Barnes's part to refuse to have
tho Vice-Presidential candidate desig

circumstances will refuse by their votes

Republican national committeemen a
proxy to name such Vice-President as
they personally wo lit after the election is
over. It has been the worst strategy
possible and is tho final blow to the stag
gering hopes of tho Taft organization,"
Republican State Ch.iirm.in Rim..

Then there was Stato Chairman Hotoh

The parade of last night was spon
taneous. Collego men who wanted to
come out Saturday and the other or
ganizations who had been drilling would
not give up the Idea, so with the aid
ot Big Bill Edwards, Johnny De Saulles,

sent out word, appointed marshals and
trusted to fate for the result.
National Chairman William F. Mc

F. Adainson and many representatives
from the National Committee. They
took their places about 8:30.
The policemen cleaned everything out
of sight, and down around the Fifth
Avenue Building there shot up a red
glare which denoted action. A line of
police on horses led off with Commis
sioner Kdwards and many other In tha
first division.
Then came the college men wearing
their colors. Every third man carried a
banner or a transparency along with a
stick of red fire which kept him busy.
Princeton had the right of the line and
had sent 101 men, who gave the Prince
ton yells for the Governor, the chair
man, the Democratic party and for
