Taft, backed by the business men of the nation and by hundreds of thousands of Democrats who could not swallow Bryan and bis popullstlc doctrines, hod no troublo In carrying tbe so-called doubtful states and It was just a plain walkover for him. Bryan has been up three times, nnd three times tho peopto havo repudiated liim. To see bow popular bo Is with Dem ocrats one has only to look at tho re turns from tho big Democratic strong holds. " Tho great city of Now York, tho city tho Democrats always look to for record breaking pluralities to offset the, big up-Btnto Republican vote, went for Taft.

Tho Republicans had o walk-over In Cook County, electing every man ou tho ticket. With n few exceptions, like William Legner, Joseph -E. Flanagan, Cyril It. Jandus, James C.

Tho Eagle Is always ou tho live ones and don't you forget It. Toko your hats off to John J. Han iKH'g as a progaestlcntor. Last week, as stated In the Eagle, ho predicted that Taft would carry Cook County by ":!,7."l plurality. Ho carried It by 7:1,000 and koiiio odd votes. Shall the pcopht rule? They do. Three times and out, and this tlmo to stay out. It was a real landslide. And now for thoispfjug elections. W. J. Uryim has been rebuked by four States which elected Democratic Governors. In Minnesota, Johnson was elected, while tho Stato la overwhelm ingly for Taft. In Ohfo, Harmon was narrowly elected. Tho Stato gavo Taft n plurality of 75,000. Indiana elected 'Marshall (Dem.)

The Fearless Governor of Illinois Re-elected by a Good Safe Plurality as Was Expected. The Knifing and Abuse of Dis gruntled Republicans Was of Little Avail. The Able Governor Had the United Support of the People AH Through the State. His Plurality Ranges from 45,000 to 55,000 According to the Latest Reports. County and Judicial Tickets Elected by Plural ities of 40,000 to 50,000 Votes. Chnrlcs S. Deneen wns re-elected gov ernnr of Illinois by n plurality of over l.",000 votes, ns the Eagle predicted Inst week. The fearless chief executive nl though abused and knifed by thousands of disgruntled Republican otllco seekers, had little trouble In being returned a winner. His election meets with tho hearty approval of the pcoplo of the state, who don't bellevo in retiring faithful olll clals whose only crime Is tlmt they have earned the enmity of n jnck of re pudiated and hungry politicians and ofllce seekers. Tho full stato ticket elected on Tues day Is as follows: Governor Chns. S. Deneen Lieutenant Governor. .John O. Ogleshy Secretary of State James A. Rose Auditor James S.

Grout i For correct predictions, Eagle. read the Illinois will bo represented In the next session of congress by nineteen Republicans nud six Democrats, a Re publican loss of one. Joseph G, Cannon was re-elected In tho Eighteenth dis trict by an Increased majority, nud this Insures his being continued In olllto ns Speaker. Tho Republicans lost their ono seat In tbo Eighth district, Chicago,, where Kysckt was defeated by Gallagher. Com- Iplete returns give Gallagher 1,000 plur ality.
