National and State Leaders
Declare War Has Just
Dixon Points'to Parallel of
1856, Predicts Absorption
of Republicans.
Committeemen and Supporters
Will 3Ieet in Chicago to Pre
pare Steady Campaign.
The Progressive, party la not an
ephemeral faction of the Republican
party or of the Democratic party and
has come to stay and without doubt will
be as long lived as the Republican na
tional party, which was organized In
The foregoing was the composite
statement made yesterday by Senator
Dixon, chairman of the Progressive Na
tlonal Committee; George W. Perkins,
chairman of the executive committee of
the National Committee; Frank A.
Munsey, Amos Pinchot and William H.
Hotchkiss, chairman of the Progressive
State committee of New York.
They pointed to the fact that ex
President Roosevelt as the Presidential
candidate of the. Progressives received
on Tuesday more than 4.000,000 votes
and that Oscar S. Straus, the Progres
slve candidate for Governor In New
York, received nearly 400,000 votes In a
total vote of 1,471,027 and came within
42,915 votes ot capturing tho election
machinery of the State from the Re
publicans. This would have carried
with it the second place on the ballot
lu the Gubernatorial election of 1914,
the Democrats having first place on the
ballot, and the Republicans would have
been third.
Absorption of Old Party?
When the Progressives recalled the
tremendous voto for Straus In New
York State and brought to mind the
fact that the Progressive organization
within the State Is not six months old,
whereas the Republican State organlza
Hon with all Its ramifications of power
ana wealth and discipline ana experi
ence Is tho outcome of more than fifty
years growth, the Progressive leaders
announced that there could be but one
outcome In the future, and that was
the disintegration and dismantlement
of the Republican State organization.
Yet Senator Dlxon, Mr. Perkins and all
the others, Including Mr. Hotchkiss, said
that they would not take one step or
turn a hand to bring about this disin
tegration for the reason that the ab
sorption by the Progressives of what Is
left of the Republican party must come
naturally and must not be the result of
missionary work.
In Erie, Kings. New York. Richmond,
Rockland, Schoharie and Westchester
counties Strain had large pluralities
over Hedges, and because of this fact
several of the Progressive leaders had
an Impression that these results In thene
.counties would give them the election
machinery for local elections next year,
and that this control of the election
machinery would extend to 1914, Guber
tutorial year.
nepnbllcnn Dispute Claim
President Samuel 8. Koenlg of the
New York Renubllcun county organlza
tlon, however, disputed this claim and
iiuoted Article II.. Section 2. of tho
State Constitution, which says.
"All laws creating, regulating or at
fecttng boards or officers charged with
the duty of registering voters or of dls
trlbutlng ballots at the polls to voters
or of receiving, recording or counting
votes at election shall secure equal rep
rrsentatlon of the two political parties
which at the general election next pre
ceding that for which such boards or
officers are to serve cast the highest
and the next highest number of votes.'
President Koenlg Insisted that the In
terpretatlon of this section of the Con
stltutlon meant that tho Progressives
could not control the election machln
ery of Individual counties, but that con.
trol could only come to them on the
basis of the entire State vote. In thl
State vote Hedges ran second to Sulzer,
President Koenlg backed up his con
tentlon by also quoting Section 30
the election law, which he claimed ap
piled to the entire State vote, as
"Each class of such (election) officers
shall be equally divided between the two
political parties which at the general
election next preceding that for which
such officers are to servo cast tha
highest and the next highest number ot
ays War Must do On.
Chairman Hotchkiss sent the follow
Ing despatch to niUProgrcsslvo county
chairmen In New York mate yesterday
"The first skirmish has been lost

Taft Is a few hundred ahead and then
Wilson takes the lead. To-night, with
about one-third of the 472 precincts In

Smallest Sum in Years Changes
Hands in Financial .
It wna pay day In Wall Htree yesterday
Kloctlon Iwta were being squared off. It
was estimated that the total, amount
that changod hands was the unusually
small sum of 1100,000. This of course in
n estimate only of the outsldo betting.
Individual and private wagering is always
considerable, but together with the public
wagering this yoar was exceptionally
small. Men who have seen a number of
years of election betting In the financial
section laughed yesterday at the small
amount of money wagered on the election.
They said It was the most Insignificant
sum they had seen in a long experience.
In an ordinary year of an important
election a respectable average of the
amount of money put up readies five or
ten times the proportions of this year.
hven in the slow betting that aooompanied
the easy victory prediotod In the Taft
campaign of four years ago the amount
of money wagered was estimated at over
In previous years the amount of money
that would go ontheelectioo, whenolosely
contested campaigns, reached totals of
$2,000,000 and $3,000,001).
At no time in the campaign just fin
ished did interest in tatting reach any
where near the pitch of enthuslism that
betting on the baseball serlos did. It
was an effort to get curb brokers nnd men
ho have a reputation as betting com
missioners In Wall Htreet to quote odds
during most of the campaign. There
was only one time when the betting during
the campaign showed liveliness and that
was on Monday afternoon late, when the
odds on Wilson began bounding up to
7, 8 and finally 10 to I, and the figures
against Taft soared In one riso from 10 to 1

the following statement to the public to-day:
"The result tills me with the hope that the thoughtful progressive
forces of the nation may now at last unite to give the country freedom of
enterprise and a government released from all selfish and private influences
devoted to justice and progress. There is absolutely nothing for the honest
and enlightened business men of the country to fear.
"No man whose business is conducted without violation of the rights
of free competition and without such private understandings and secret
alliances as violate the principle of our law and the policy of all wholesome
commerce and enterprise need fear either interference or embarrassment
from "the Administration.
"Our hope and purpose Is now to bring til the free forces of the nation
Into active and intelligent cooperation and to give to our prosperity a
freshness and spirit end a confidence such as It has not had in our time.
"The responsibilities of the task are tremendous, but they arc common
responsibilities which all leaders of action and opinion must share. And
with the confidence of the people behind us everything that is right is pos
sible. - "My own ambition will be more than satisfied if I may be permitted
to be the frank spokesman of the nation's thoughtful purposes In these
great matters."
Moore, Law Expert, and Bryan
' Talked Of for Stato m
Possibilities Also Include Sen
ator Gardner, Dr. Wiley and
Judge Westcott.
Wasiusotox, Nov. 6. John Itassbtt
Moore, author of many works on In
ternational law and from tlmo to time
an advlBer of the Stato Department In
diplomatic matters. Is believed to be a
possibility for Secretary of State under
the administration of President Wilson
unless William J. Bryan Is Invited to
become the head of the new Cabinet.
. Among'-other .Oablnet names sug
gested Is that of ITesIdent Charles R.
Van Hlse of the t'nlverslty of Wis
consin, an authority on conservation
matters, for Secretary of tho Interior.
Such men, It Is believed, will appeal
very strongly to President Wilson In
making up his list of official advisers.
The names of three Senators are also
being discussed In Washington as pos
slbllltles for Cabinet honors, Atlee
l'omerene of Ohio, John Sharp Will
iams of Mississippi and John W. Kern
of Indiana. Mr. Kern will probably
hesitate to accept a place In the Cabi
net, but he Is probably the only man
from Indluna In line for such recogni
tion. The fact that the Vice-President
comes from Indiana will probably pre
vent President Wilson from going to
that State for a Cabinet MJnlster. The
State of Maine Is likely to riirnisu mo
Cabinet officer for New Kngland. Two
names are suggested, ex-Qov. Frederick
W. Plulslcd and Senator Obadlah Gard
ner. Senator Gardner was defeated for re
election to the Senate. Ho was a very
ardent Hupportcr of Gov. Wilson and
Is a practical agriculturist, being
prominently Identified with tho National
Grange. Ills name Is most frequently
htnrl In connection with the Depart
ment of Agriculture.
The name of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley
Is nlso suggested, hut this Is not taken
very seriously In Washington. Dr.
Wiley was a Republican until this year
and has been Identified with several
controversies In the Agricultural De
partment which In tho main reflect only
credit on himself but would make hie
appointment more or less Impracticable
as tending to revive these disputes.
In selecting a Cabinet President Wil
son will probably follow the rule of his
predecessors and make a geographical
distribution of his Ministers. A Demo
cratic Senator expressed the belief to
day that at least one member of the
Cabinet will como from New Kngland,
probably from Maine or Massachusetts.
He thought that at least one other
member would come from New York
and nrobably one from New Jersey.
The name of Judge Westcott, wno
placed Gov, Wilson's name before) the
Baltimore convention, Is very frequently
heard In connection with Cabinet gos
uln. Judge Wcntcott's speech In the
Baltimore convention gave him a na
tlonwldo reputation. It Is recalled also
that he rctlrod from the race for Sena
tor In the Interest of Congressman
Wllllum Hughes and would probably ba
In line for some offlclai recognition.
If n Cabinet placo goes to Pennsyl
vanla It Is oxpected that Congressman
A. Mitchell Palmer or George W. Guth
rlo of Pittsburg, who was chairman of
the Pennsylvania delegation at uam
more, will be In line.
