Woodrow Wilson graduated from Princeton in 1810, three years before his ? meeting with Miss Ax=or? Part of the ground on which the university now stands had belonged originally to Nathaniel Fitarandolph, a great-sreat uncle of M!?c Axson. Four generations of this family were born and died at Prince ton before Isaac Fltzrar.dolpn the second, Mias Axson's great-grandfather, moved to South Carolina, from where her father went to Savannah. Later descendants modified the name to Randolph. Theo dore Freiinghuysen Randolph, who - as elected Governor of New Jersey In 18t>8, belonged to the .same family. All three of the daughters of the Wilson family are gifted and accomplished. The eldest, Miss Margaret Wilson, has a rich ?oprano voice which has been cultivated by leading New York teachers.

His exceptional preparation for the task was universally commended, j His administration- was unqualifiedly in dorsed by his party, which again choee him for its candidate for a further term. The record of achievement during his ad ministration was unparalleled. He has stood as a bulwark in support of the Con stitution and of representative govern ment, which is the very life of the nation.

J., nomi 1 nated him for the governorship of that state, and when the votes were counted for the state that two years- before had given Taft a plurality of 82,000 it was i found that New Jersey had gone for Wil son by a plurality of S0,000, and that he had changed the political faith of 66,000 out of 433,000 voters. What He Did as Governor. His nomination for the presidency at Baltimore and the events of the cam paign are of too recent occurrence to need repetition here. It is familiar his tory. But it is Interesting to nbte that the new Governor of New Jersey, in 1911, with his party in control of only one chamber of the legislature, and with a faction of his own party against him, put through a program of legislation that redeemed one of the most backward, corporation-ridden states in the Union; that he vindicated the primary that had nominated for United States senator a man whom the Old bosses didn't approve; that he made it clear that he had abso lutely meant his campaign promise that he would take office without obligation to any man. group or interest, but only to the people of New Jersey; that he worked out a direct primary and election law which is now the model for other progressive states, and that he secured the establishment of a public utilities commission with power to fix rates, ap praise properties and regulate the finance of railway, express, telegraph, telephone, light, heat and power companies. Indorsed by Public. He put into effect an employers' liabil ity law; legalised the commission form of city government, with initiative, refer endom and recall?that he did all this and more, and did it all in such a way that overwhelming public sentiment in dorsed his every act, and interests which tried to resist him were won over to sup port measures of whose wisdom, even from their point of view, he convinced them. It was before all these things were done by the new Governor of New Jersey that the unidentified man in the middle west sent up his call for Woodrow Wilson for the presidency. And then the fame of his performances as governor and the per sonality that had wrought them going through the land, there came rolling up, as he once said the great voice of Amer ica comes, "not from seats of learning, not from corridors of universities, but in a murmur from the hills and woods and the farms, factories and mills, rolling on and gaining volume as it comes, from the homes of common men"?there came thundering on to Baltimore the demand that would not be denied, that Woodrow Wilson be named democracy's choice for President. Born in Staunton, Va. What manner of man is he? He was I born,in 1836, during Christmas week, in (the town of Staunton, Va.?in the beau tiful Shenandoah valley. Seven Presi dents had come from that state, and the democrats regarded that as an omen of good fortune should they nominate him. Two years after Woodrow Wilson was born his father was called to the pas torate of the Presbyterian Church of Augusta, Ga., one of the most influential congregations of the south. He remained in this pulpit throughout the war. Woodrow was too young to have any distinct recollections of the great con flict, of which Augusta, in fact, saw lit tle.

"Oat of all the conflict of this extraor dinary campaign there can be drawn supreme consolation?In which every cit isen of the Union must share?that through the uncompromising and un flinching warfare of President Taft and the republican party the third term at tack upon our institutions has been de feated and the stamp of condemnation placed upon it by a large majority of the citisenship of the country, and also that through his determined and vigorous ex posure of the dangerous policy of the third term party he has repelled the as saults upon the Constitution of our fa thers and upon the sound a .d basic ele ments of national life." LEWIS WINS IN SIXTH. Estimated His Plurality Will Be About 6,000. Special Dispatch to The Star. HAGERSTOWN, Md., November 6 ? Representative David J. Lewis (dem.), has been re-elected in the sixth district of Maryland by the largest plurality ever received by a congressional candidate in this district. It is believed that when the returns are complete it will be found that Representative Lewis' plurality is (about 6.O00. Complete returus from the UUrty-two GOV. AND MRS. THOMAS R. MARSHALL.

The future Governor of New Jersey first saw the state where his earliest political honors were to be won one September morning in 1875. He found himself enter ing the freshman class with 133 other young men. Princeton had been a favor ite resort of young southern students, Lut now there were only a very few from that section of the country. The town was charming, the college buildings, then six teen in number, made an attractive group around old Nassau Hall, which dated back to 1756. It was a quiet, staid, old-fash ioned place, where what were then deemed the essentials of an "education" were proffered to such as chose to take them. Wilson was a prime favorite at col lege. He was not overstudious in the regular course. At graduation he ranked forty-first in a class of 122. The class of '79 is a famous one, holding in its ranks many who have achieved eminence; Wil son had here another schoolmate who was to sit on the federal Supreme Court bench?Mahlon C. Pitney. Wilson ranked as a leader among such fellows from the start; he was active in sports (though college sport in those days was nothing districts and precincts in Washington county, the home of Charles D. Waga man, the republican candidate, gave Lewis 4,758; Wagaman, 4,015. For the presidential candidates the vote in the county is: Wilson. 4,573; Roosevelt, 2,500; Taft, l.JKM). In only five of the Washing ton county districts did Taft run ahead of Roosevelt. In Frede:ick county the vote was as follows: Wilson, 5,480; Roosevelt, 2,754; Taft. 2,779; Lewis, 5,445; Wagaman, 4,770. Further than to say that he was only one of the many victims of the demo cratic landslide, Mr. Wagaman declined to make any statement. He failed to carry one of the five counties comprising the district. While the progressives polled a large vote in western Maryland, which is their stronghold in the state, local bull moosers are disappointed over their showing in many sections. Hard Foot Ball Battle. The M Street High School foot ball team is expected to meet a tartar in the foot ball team representing the Manassas In dustrial School, that will play here next Monday afternoon at Union League Park. The M Street team showed its class by defeating heavier teams and older play ers when Howard Academy lost by the score of 12 to 7, and Storer College lost by the score of 2). to 18. This will be the first game an out-of-town team has played here this fall. Coach Douglass has his boys in food shape for the coming battle. like what it Is today); lie was managing editor of the Frincetonian. and by the time commencement came around he was confidently looked to as the chap who ought to rise highest among them all. At University of Virginia. After graduation at Princeton, Wood row Wilson went to the University of Virginia, that great institution of liberal learning organized by Thomas Jefferson. Here he spent a year studying In the law department under the singularly able guidance of Dr. John B. Minor. At Charlottesville also Wilson was an ac knowledged leader among his classmates, i He joined the glee club; he was active in sports; he organised a debating society; he walked off with the Writer's prize and the Orator's prize. His personal popularity, however, was due not so much to his gifts as to his companion ability, his unselfishness and his love of fun. He was a great Joker, a composer of limericks and nonsense verses. But ! always he studied the science of govern i went. The natural path into public life in the United States has generally been through the profession of law. Accordingly, Wil son prepared to practice law. Failed as Atlanta Lawyer.

The total republican vote is about evenly divided between Taft and Roosevelt, while the socialist, social ist labor and prohibition vote is not equaling that cast four years ago. Scattering returns from the congres sional districts show that the democratic candidates are victors in nine out of the ten districts, the ninth district giving the usual republican majority.

At ( lanta was already well supplied with j lawyers whom the citizens knew and to whom they were related. I So, In the autumn of 1883, a new stu dent matriculated at Johns Hopkins University, and entered on work In history and political economy underth? direction of the late Herbert B. Adams and Dr. Richard T. Ely. He undertook a thoroughgoing study into the prob lems of government. James Bryce, who, as a foreigner, was studying our politics and writing his famous book "The American Commonwealth," found valuable aid in the work of the young men at Johns Hopkins, particularly In that of Woodrow Wilson, to whose original researches he acknowledged his particular obligation. Completed Study of Government. Early in 1885 Wilson completed that job. He had made a book, and now It was published: "Congressional Govern ment: A Study of Government by Com mittee." It was the first account ever given of the way Americans actually do govern themselves. The book met with instant success. It was immediately recognized as a final, standard piece of work. Today, twenty-seven years later, it remains unsupersedcd. For three years Wilson taught his tory and political economy at Bryn Mawr. The next two years he then spent as professor of the same sub jects at Wesleyan University?a non sectarian college, in spite of its name? at Middletown, Conn. During these years, too, he acted as a lecturer on the Johns Hopkins faculty. His fame as a speaker spread, and he came to be in constant demand for addresses on public questions. Second Book on Government. Everywhere, both in his classes and in his public appearances, he made an extraordinary impression; here was a man, his audiences felt, who made pub lic affairs luminous and fascinating; who was afire with ideas, as he was crammed with knowledge; who had new points of view and a new way of saying things; who stirred men, their consciences and their patriotism, just as he informed and clarified their minds. While at Middletown Mr. Wil son published a second book. The State." displaying a simply prodigious knowledge of the history and principles of governments from the earliest times down to the latest. In 1890. the chair of jurisprudence and politics at Princeton falling vacant, the trustees very naturally elected to it their own old graduate who had so auickly made himself a foremost repu tation as a student of politics. His Return to Princeton. September, 1890. then, found Woodrow Wilson again domiciled in the Jersey col legiate town which fifteen years before he had first gazed around upon with the eyes of a raw student from the south.

"Say mister," said the panhandler, "I ain't goln* to give ye no song an' dance about bein' a starvln' man. becuz I ain't starvln', but I am a wictlm to a parchln' thoyst. Could ye stake me to a drink?" ??Sure." said the wayfarer. "Here's a nickel-" ,, lt , ,, "T'anks. boss." said the panhandler, gazing at the coin.

There Is a whole street of them, some of the houses being palatial: yet, all told, they have room for only about 350 mem bers. less than a quarter of the whole ?university, less than half of the upper classmen. Membership is sought after eagerly from the day of entrance. All through the freshman and sophomore years every man is anxiously scheming to be one of the fortunate ones admitted to a club. When he becomes a junior he learns his fate. More than half are shut out. Some of these leave college. President Wilson made up his mind that the system was undemocratic and de structive of everything that an Ameri can university ought to stand for and in culcate. Yet he did not attack the clubs; he came, in 1907, with a proposal to sub stitute a better system for them. His idea was the division of the whole uni versity into "quadrangles," each "quad rangle" or "quad" to be composed of a certain number of students from each class with a preceptor or two living with them. Between Woodrow Wilson and his enemies there lay, at this point, an im passable gulf. Opposed College Idleness. There was another; Wilson was op posed, with all the energy of his nature, to the idea of a group of sumptuous buildings where a selected group of young gentlemen of peculiar refinement were to live, in Sloistered seclusion, the life of culture. Wilson had his own plan for a graduate school, but it was a plan for a corps of competent instructors, laboratories, libraries and the practical essentials of study, right in the heart of the university's life?rather than the embroidery of fine buildings and seclu sion. "A university does not consist of buildings," he said. "A university con sists of teachers and students." The other idea violated Wilson's idea of de mocracy, set about to create p. scholarly aristocracy. "Will America tolerate the idea of hav ing graduate students set apart?" he de manded. "America will tolerate nothing except unpatronized endeavor. Seclude a man, separate him from the rough and tumble of college life, from all the con tacts with all sorts and conditions of men, and you have done a thing which America will brand with its contemptu ous disapproval." Intense Passions Ablaze. Those who were not In a position to know what went on at Princeton and among her graduates throughout the land in the years 1909 and '10 cannot possibly have any notion of the intensity of the passions that were ablaze, of the bit terness of the battle that was fought. For between those who prefer exclusiveness to democracy, between those who willing ly accept and those who refuse to sub mit to "the accursed domination of money" (so Wilson came to call it)?the issue was the most bitter that can be drawn. The moral victory was won, and the opponents of Mr. Wilson were silenced. It was this fight, which brought him be fore the eyes of the people all over the world where Princeton has graduates, that led hiin to the governorship of New Jersey, and to his career in government Which began there. WILSON WINS IN MAINE. State Eleots Democratic Electors for First Time Since the Civil War. PORTLAND, Me., November 6.?Returns from about four-fifths of the state indi cated that for the first time since the civil war the democratic ticket for the electors had been successful. With 400 out of 521 places in the state reported the vote stood Roosevelt, 43.267; Taft, 20,028; Wilson, 48,086. The same places four years ago gave Col. Bryan 33,488; Taft, 61,101, a plurality of 27,713. If the same ratio held throughout it was estimated that the plurality of Wil son would be 4.155. President Taft's plu rality In 1908 was 31,584. With all but sixty small towns and plan tations heard from Gov. Wilson's plural ity In Maine stood at 2,635. The totals were Roosevelt, 47,725; Taft, 26,145; Wil son, 50,360. WILSON CABBIES DELAWARE. State Is Also Likely to Send a Demo crat to Congress. WILMINGTON, Del., November 6.?In complete deturns Indicate that Wilson has carried Delaware and that Franklin Brockson, democrat, is elected to Con gress. Returns have been slow coming in and with only partial figures no definite pre diction can be made regarding the atate ticket and the legislature that will elect a successor to United States Senator Richardson, republican. It appears, how ever, that the state ticket and the general assembly are republican. The national progressive (second pro gressive party in Delaware) polled a much larger vote than the original pro gressives. In some districts of Wilming ton the nationals beat the originals tl'iree and four to one. The republican vote; especially in Wilmington, was lessened probably 15 per cent because of the pro gressive support. The race for governor between Mono ghan (dem.) and Miller (rep.) is close. Matthew Divine, a gunner's mate on the battleship Michigan, was crushed to death Monday in a gun turret of that vessel at Norfolk. Va. He was caught between the turret's side and an ammuni- i Uon hoist- Hi* neck was broken. MARSHALLS KNOWN TO WASHINGTONIANS Next Vice President of United States Is Simple and Di rect in Manner. Thomas Riley Marshall, who will be the next Vice President of the United States, is one of the simplest and most direct of men. His telegram to Gov. Wilson last, night, in which he said: "I salute you, my chieftain, in all lave and I loyalty," breathes the spirit of the In diana governor, who has been given the second highest place in the bestowal of the American people as well as anything could. It breathes, too. the spirit of his Virginia forbears, for Gov. Marshall I* a descendant of the famous Virginia family of that name. Born in Indiana. He was born near Manchester. Ind., Maretfi 14, 18M. He was a son of Daniel M. and Martha A. (Patterson) Marshall. He graduated from Wabasfi College in 1873, receiving the degree of .LL. D. from that institution in 1009, from Notre Dame University in 1910, and from the University of Pennsylvania In 1911. He married Dots I. Kimsey of Angola, Ind., October 2, 1896. and was admitted to the bar in 1875. He practiced law for a number of years in Indiana and was elected governor of the state in 1909. He is a trustee of Wabash College, a thirty third degree Mason and, like Gov. Wilson and his family, he is a Presbyterian. Have No Children. In their seventeen years of life together Gov. Marshall and Mrs. Marshall have been inseparable. They have no children During their visit to Washington a few : months ago Gov. Marshall was offered a seat on the floor of the House of Repre sentatives during a debate which was in progress. Finding, however, that Mrs. Marshall was not included in the cour tesy, the governor declined. For the same reason he declined more than two years ago an invitation to join the governors of other states and accompany the Presi dent on his Journey down the Mississippi river. To decline an Invitation extended by the President haB in Washington, where official etiquette becomes every year more rigid, its embarrassing side But the Governor of Indiana had no hesi tancy in sending his regrets, nor in ex plaining his reason. When he has gone campaigning Mrs. Marshall has gone along. She shakes hands with every one and chats about anything and everything, except r>oil:lc* ; and her husband. She is recalled here a? a young looking matron, tall, with a well proportioned figure, a pretty complexion, and blue eyes. Both Gov. Marshall and his wife wer* brought up in the state of Indiana and ed ucated at local schools and colleges. Their tastes are one, and their marriage has been described as ideal. Both are fond of books, and usually spend their evenings together in the library of their home, which, whether at Indianapolis or Columbia City, is its most attractive apartment. Mrs. Marshall is a woman of cultivated mind, and though her tastes are literary, she is yet keenly interested in present day problems and questions. Brought up in too conservative a school to be attracted to the suffragist cau?e, or to take an active part in political ?:? other public Issues, Mis. Marshall is ye*, credited with having been a potent fac tor in the success of her husband's ca reer. Defining her influence in his life, a prominent woman from the state o?

Theodore Roosevelt made the following statement: "The American people by a great plu rality have decided in favor of Mr. Wil son and the democratic party. Like al: good citizens, I accept the result wit i entire good lmmor and contentment. A* for the progressive cause, I can only re peat what I have already so 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 well-being of the American people. "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." Col. Roosevelt said he would make no further statement last night than this brief one he issued. He smilingly de clined to answer interrogations. He *as seemingly In the best of spirits, end not at all perturbed over the failure of the progressives to win this election. *
