WILSON SAYS 6.0. P. CANNOT FOOL LABOR Cliaws llcptibllcnns With Trying to Coerce Working men With Tariff Alarm. HK ASSAILS "OLD GUARD" Opponents Seek to Kccstnhlish In visible Government, Ho Warns Country. tOKfl IlRANClt, N. J Nov. 4. PreiU itnl Wilson, In his Iln.il iipcrcli of th fttnpilffn. accused llio Itcpubllrnn lead. tn of nttrmiitlnK to coorco tholr tm ployooit to vote for the O. O. 1". and for a protective tariff. "Having despaired of an Imiue, they r tilling the country with alarmi," he mill to-day at Shadow Iiwn to a dele gation of New Jersey voten. "They lire not only fllllnir the country with alarms, but they are attempting coercion of their laborer. They Imagine that these men are tut their own masters, and dare not vote as they think, hut nt last. I thank Ood. the American laborer la awake." The President asserted that because cTfry other effort to raise nn Issue had failed tin Hepubllcan party had fallen lck on the protective tariff, "the only thin It ever could talk about." "They Inow perfectly well," ho added, "that the Industries with the highest protection hac paid the lowest wages." New Jersey's political situation waa bandied directly. Any man voting for the Hepubllcan ticket In thli Rtnte la voting for "Invisible government," the resident asserted, adding that he longed to he In the light. The. delegation at Shadow I.awn wm made up of men from Jersey City, New ark, Trenton and Princeton, whence came a number of professors and atudenta. Oov. Fielder presided. Mr. Wllaoa'a Addrcaa. The President aald in part: "lnvlsiblo government never existed In more hateful form that It has existed In past years In this State of New Jer tjr. and that Invisible government never had more successful places of conceal ment than It had In such localities as Atlantic City, from whore the candi date for Governor on the Republican tide has been chosen, and It never re ceived more successful and persistent de fence than It has received from the news papers which he owns and controls. "When I see this unblushing, this Im pudent uttempt to reinstate these forces without any concealment of any kind do you wonder that I would like to get out again and denounce the whole crowd as ! know them? "If any man votes for the Republican State candidates In this contest he knows that he U voting for the reestablish rat tit of Invisible government In the State of New Jersey. "Hut after all. my fellow citizens, the thing that Is being attempted In New Jersey I only part nf what Is being attempted In the United Htates with more and more transparency of purpose. Look how the campaign has gone. First (f all an attempt to set up some kind of handsome Issue. Not a very Interest ing uttempt. because the Issue was a new one every week. "As axw as you approached what was said to bit the lsue It seemed to fade and disappear nnd thcr was nothing for you to grasp or grapple, and after finding that Hie senrch for an Isauc was In vain they came down once more to the only thing they have In recent years ver known how to talk about, and that was the protective tariff. Tart "Pretencss." 'They know perfectly well that all the pretences about the protective tariff have been torn away, not by tho ora tnnr nf h.mni.Miu ... t, . w patent demonstrations of fact. They niiow mai me worxingmen or tins coun try may have been deceived for a lit tle while. buL thv all the time. "They know just as well m we know that tlm Itiflii.tfiAa Im protection was given paid the lowest wages, ana tney Know that the highest wages were paid In the least protected Industries. That Is n matter of record. Not only lhat. they know that In some of tho most highly protected Industries the conditions under which the laboring people lived were a disgrace to our civ ilisation. "And now what do wo witness? Ilav tnff desnalritil nf nn t.... . fin ing tho country with alarms. They arc i uniy nmng we country with alarms, but they are attempting coercion of their tahnrr Tli.u U..I... these mon are not their own masters and uuru uoi vote as uiey think, nut nt last. I thank Ood, the American laborer Is nwake. "He at last judges his friends by what they do and not by what they nay. He knows that he has found friends, be cause ho has found men who will do tho things that ha has demanded should be done In Justice and qulty to him. Control Xathlajff Bat Reltlatr. "Let them fill the nlr nlih nhirnm The alarms are their own. not ours. 1 They used to control the credit of the country: they now control nothing but the betting. So that I think as we look back upon this campaign for we are now looking back upon It. and ke are now nothing but cries of distress as we look back upon It we can see a very heartening nnd encouraging thing. "Wo can see tho American people at last asserting themselves by rejecting the old leadership under which they wsre so long led astray and turning to do things for themselves. The differ ence between the Republican party and the Democratic Is this: The Hepubllcan party offers them masters; we offer them comrades and leaders. The He publlcan party offers to take care of them: we offer to go Into tho light shoulder to shoulder with them to get the rights which no man has n right to glvo to them. The ranks are formed. "It was the duty of those who rep resented tho Hepubllcan party, as It was our duty, In their camtialcn to ex the real heart of the social necessities nnd the political exigencies of America. Have they d no that? Have thev not merely said that though the right things had been done no doubt they had been done by the wrong people? What differ ence does It make who did them, whe ther they were good looking men or ugly men. whether they wero wise men or unwise, whether they were schoolmaster or sages? If they were dona and were the right things to do, then eery man ought to stand by them awl praise them. Declares It a Crisis. "It Is a crisis because some of the fundamental things of the life of the world have to hs determined. That Is one reason why we have been saying much by 'we' I mean eetbjdy who has been discussing this rampalgn about the apparent desire of some peo ple to have our public policy determined by Kuropean reasons and not American reasons. We have seen that unless we could unite and direct and purify the forces of this country, we could not do what It was ncess.tr- to do for the world through the Instrumentality of America. 'Therefore we have lni-lsted with re peated Inslstenco that the first thng to do was to see that ever) body Intended the same things nnd l.il the same things and bellced In the same things. All that we have heard frin our oppo nents has been that thit they believed In themselves. That Is not what r wanted to kimw. Po they believe In u also? Do they IsMleva In America also? Do they believe that America by show ing In her own politics that she means what she sn)s about herself can bo counted upon to mean what she says about the world when the war Is over? "It nmaaes me that men calling them selves statesmen should discuss soinn nf the things our opponents have been dwelling upon when tho whole atmos phere of the world was lurid with tho blase of threatened trouble i men spread ing tlnOcr In this country when sparks without number were blowing over from this terrible conflagration ', men making party sport of unsettled questions, not settled ones ; of present courses of ac tion, not past rotirses of action : seeking to make party capital out of things which, If not settled wisely, might bring this country nt any moment Into tho world conflict which Is devastating lluropc. Isolated Nn Longer. "The t'nlted States will never ngaln be what It has been. The United States was once In enjoyment of what we used to call splendid Isolation. The three thousand miles of tho Atlantic seemed to hold all European affairs at arm's length from us. Tho gtcat spaces of the Pacific seemed to dlscloso no threat of Inlliienco upon our politics. "With this outlook Ir. It worth while to stop to think of party advantage? Is It worth stopping to think of how we have voted In the past? Why. my fel low cltliens. It Is an unprecedented thing In the world that any nation In determining Its foreign relations should be unsclllsh, nnd my nmbltlon Is to see America set that great exnmple, not only n great example mornlly but a great exnmiilu Intellectually. "Is It not worth while voting for these things, no matter how you have voted In past years? You never had these things to voto for before. Are you going to de termine what you are going to )oto for low by what you voted for In an era lhat Is concluded and gone by? For my part, I thank Ood that the era of the Old Ouard has gone by. They never ronce'ved or understood an unselfish pur. pose. In tholr lives. "Look at the Industtlcs which have treated their employers) ns If they were fellow men nnd human beings. Have they not had better fnriorles and have thev not made more money than the rest? Feels the Insplrntloa. "So, my fellow citizens, I feel rising In mv nulses already the Inspiration and impulse which Is to come not only to the United States but to tho world next Tuesday. I do not Identify myself with l i s. To me has fallen the unspeagauic good fortune of happening to be the siMikfsmaii of the American people at this critical and fateful time. "I do not know what Is wise. I can not bo sure that I Judge right, but 1 am sure that my heart epaks the same thing that they wish their hearts to speak. It Is only In this impulse, lit this sympathetic connection which 1 am sure that I have with them, that J am worthy to speak for them nt nil. Thtficfoie I can feel some of tha Im personal Inspiration which comes from events and circumstances llko the pres. eut. Ill the da) 8 to come men wiil no longer wonder how America Is going to work out her destiny, for she will have proclaimed to them that her destiny U not divided from tho destiny of tin world, that hr purpose Is Justice and 'ove of mankind." "100 MAJORITY" IS WILLCOX'S LAST SAY Republican Chairman's Esti mate Based on Reports From Every State. NEW YORK STATE, ir.0,000 Parsons Confident of Great Plurality Koonlg's Figures Out To-day. "This fight has been won for the ticket of the reunited Hepubllcan party." Theso were the words' of Republican Chairman William It. wlllcox last eve ning as he predicted the election of Charles R, Hughes on Tuesday next "by at lean 109 majority In the electoral college." Mr. Wlllcox, unlike Chalrmnn McCor mlck of the Democrats, did not give out a lt of States which the Republicans expert d to carry. Hut thcro was no gainsaying tho confidence which per vaded Hepubllcan headquarters last eve ning, while men tore down partitions and put up blackboards preparatory to re ceiving the returns. This was Mr. Wlllcox's formal state ment: The result of next Tuesday's election Is not In doubt nor la It a matter of uncertainty. It Is not a question of rlvst claims. This fight has been won for ths ticket of the reunited Hepubll can pirty. At Least too Majority. After receiving reports from most of the States throughout tho country It POET SPEAKS AT CEILIfcHE.

I have made this n-jwrt to Mr. Hughes this afternoon, ns It Is based on report re ceived from all over the country. Bo far as the claims of our oppo- I nentn are concerned, It Is perhaps not ' Improper to call attention to the fact that when Mr. McCormlck was run ning for Governor of Pennsylvania he predicted a large majority for himself In the Htatn, and on election nlgnt It was found that he was not only de feated In tho Htatc but he also had not carried the city or tho district In which ho lived. These extravagant claims are the Invariable accompaniment of tho Democrats In Piesldentlal campaigns. Our opponents have always elected their candidates by a large majority In '.lie days Immediately preceding tho election, but they fall on election day, and they will lamentably fall on Tues day next. livery Chnfrman Iteported, Mr. Wlllcox's Rtatrment was made after every Hepubllcan chairman In the rnmtry had telegraphed his opinion of th result In his State. As these reports began to flow In from the wlies Repub lican confidence began to go up by leaps and bounds. The story these messages told was of n pronounced change of sentiment In many doubtful Htates; of tho conversion of much of the labor vote, of a awing around even of many nf the trainmen. They told of a fight Hindi) In the last, two weeks by the Ito puhllcnn organizations In many Htates such ns tho party has tcldom waged In Its history. While Mr. Wlllcox absolutely re fused to enumerate the Htates upon which he based Ills prediction It Is known that the Itrpubllcans expect to carry all of the big doubtful Htates, In cluding Ohio, nnd that they think they have the best chanco now even In Ken tucky, which would virtually mean a dip down Into the South. The Hepubllcan national campaign Is oil over. Desks were closed at Hepub llcan headquarters, pattltlotis wore re moved nnd the whole place was made over for the reception Tuesday night Mr. Wlllcox's official statement marked the formal end of the activities at head, quarters. Perklas Aarees With Wlllcox. "I thoroughly agree with nnd concur In Mr. Wlllcox's statement and hnvo nothing to add to It," said Cleorge W. Perkins, who has been one of the chief figures In running tho campaign. Herbert Parsons, national committee man from New York, believes that Hughes Is to carry every Northern State save Colorado, Montana and Nevada. "In this Hlate," said Mr. Parsons, "Mr. Hughes will have not less than 1SO.O0O plurality." Mr. Parsons said that he based this prediction on figures which he had re-1 celved and carefully gone ovir. In this I city, Mr. Parsons predicted, Mr. Wilson would not get over 3C000. Two weeks , ago Mr. Parsons estimated It nt Sn.OuO. but he said thnt ho had good reason to change his figures. These arc Mr. Par sons's estimates on the city: Manhattan 15,000 to 20,000 for Wilson. llrooklyn 1,000 to 6,000 for Hughes, tlronx R.OOO to 10,000 for Wilson. Richmond and Queens About nn even break. Hamuel H. Koenlg. chairman of the Republican County Committee, will glvo out to.day his tstlmntes by Assembly districts. He gave out this statement last night: "All I can ay to-day Is that. In my Judgment, Wilson's plurality In Manhat tan will be less than IS.OOO." Koenlg believes that Wilson will carry seventeen Assembly districts only. Kings for Hughes by B.tlOO. The lowfit estimate pHoed on the Hughes plurality In the State yesterday was 70,1100. Another conference of th-i leaders In Brooklyn yesterday resulted In a prediction of (1,000 plurality fur Hughe there. Hughes's plurality above The Rronx In yesterday's estimates of various leaders ran from 12P,0u0 to 17S.000. Reports made by tho Republican can vassers In Manhattan, Rrooklyn and Queens Indicate, so the leaders say. that Wilson will nowhere poll the usual Dem- ocratlo vote. The usual Democratic pin- , rallty In Queens apparently Is to be cut to ribbons. The Republican Assembly districts of this city, according to the I canvass, show Increased pluralities, while this Is just the reverse In the Dem octntlc districts. There Is absolutely no sign of a Wilson tidal wave In New York city, It would seem from these re ports. ' Last hour figures from up Btate, It was said yesterday, showed that whllo In some counties the Republican plu ralities would bo smaller than usual, In others they would be larger. WESTERN FIGHT ENDS. A. T. Ilert Bare Haghes Wilt (let n.1T Electoral Votes. CitifAuo, Nov. 4. Managers of tho Western Republican nnd Democratic na t'on.il headquarters finished their work to-day. Alvln T.
