held their strength, bowover, and made
steady, general gajns over the Brynn
vote of four years ago. Hut thuL'opub
licau parly, split, over the Chicago con
vontion between Taft and Roosevelt,
divided the vote. That is the answer
to the tabulated voto that shows Gov
ernor Wilson carried more states and
got ;i larger electoral voto than was
ever given any president before.
Analysis of Vote.
The Roosevelt vote was- simply the
Progressive Republican vote, plus a
very sjiuall percentage of tho Demo
cratic vote. Tho. Taft vole was the con
servative Republican vote, minus a
small percentage of anli-Roosevclt votes
in certain states, which went to Wilson.
There was one gratifying thing about
the election. There was no doubt about
the general result from thc timo the
lirst returns began to come in. Flashes
of a i'cw precincts from Massachusetts
and New York settled the issue to thc
laymon as well as to tho expert guess
ers. Those early returns showed thut
Wilson wns holding the Democratic vote
while Taft and Roosevelt were splitting
the Republican voto something like
ovcn: And that settled thc case.
.NEW YORK, -Xov. ;". Woodrow
Wilson was tho choice of the
state of New York for president
by a. plurality estimated at midnight
at about 200,000, from returns received
from nearly every election district in
thc greater citj' of New York, and from
all but 000 of tho 003 districts outside
of New York city.
President T.ift led Colonel Roosevelt
in the same districts by about i5,000
Congressman William Sul;:cr was
elected governor witu a plurality esti
mated at midnight at about 175,000
over .fob K. Hedges, the Republican
nominee, who, in turn, led Oscar Straus,
enndidato of the Progressive part', by
about 35,000 votes.
William Barnes, Jr., chairman of the
Republican state committee, issued the
following statement:
"Tho result of the election in the
stale of Now York demonstrates one
thing: that tho Roosevelt movement
was simply a Republican bolt. With
all of the I'm u tie efl'orts that were made
to secure votes irom 'people generally,
the result shows that practically none
but former Republicans joined the
Roosevelt movement.
"Tho deciaivo victory of Taft and
Hedges over Roosevelt aud StrauB is a
demonstration that thc Republicans of
New York desired thc renominntion of
President Taft and that tho delegates
from this state properly expressed the
preference of thc Republicans when a
lnro majority voted for Taft al Chi

Late Returns Show Changes
Enough to Make Control
of Congress Certain.
Returns at 1:30 a. jn. made more cer
tain the earlier indications that-the
Democrats would increase their majority
in the house of representatives. At
that hour returns showed that by the
reapportionment and by defeat of op
ponents in normally Republican, dis
tricts, thoro was a gain of 25 Democrats
over tho number accredited in thc
sixty-ninth congress and a loss of one.
This gain was as follows:
J'ive in rew .'Jersey; ono in Indiana;
two in Texas: ouc in Louisiana: one in
Florida; one in Georgia: five in Con
necticut; one in Alabama; ono iu Town;
and eight in New York. In Wisconsin
two more elected 'nominally on a Demo
cratic ticket from Republican districts,
though they were actually named by a
fusion following. A number of thc Re
publican representatives" returned were
given the Progressive indorsement.
A ga.in of two Democratic seats in
the United States senate was secured
by thc returns from Delaware and Now
Jersey. The Icgiilature of Rhodo Island
probably will be Democratic, insuring1 a
Democratic .successor to Wetiuore, Re
publican, retired. Later returns from
Wyoming indicated that Warren, Re
publican, -would be elected.
Democratic managers in Colorado be
lieve that tho two Democratic candi
dates for tho United States sennto will
bo carried in on Wilson 's pluralrt-. j
Jn Illinois, which will elect two Unit
ed States senators, late returns indi
cated that thc Progressives aud So
cialists would hold the balance of pow
er on joint ballot.

returns were reccivod in Washington
tonight with demonstrations which
many old observers said had not been
equalled since thc civil wnr.
Interest in the presidential contest
ran high as did that on thc complexion
of thc next congress.
Among tho lirst returns clieerod in

been re-elected, lie will undoubtedly
preside over thc next houso unless in
