TWENTIETH YEAR, NO.
A CLEANJWEEP.
Republican, National, State, County and
City Ticket Win Decisive Victory
on Tuesday.
Taft's Election Gives Confidence to
the Business Men of the
Nation.
Hundreds of Thousands of Democrats Cast
Their Ballots for the Republican
Standard Bearer.
Illinois Rolls Up 180,000 Plurality and Cook
County 80,000 Plurality for
Taft.
Result Shows Plainly How Sick the People Are
of Bryan and His
Pals.
William Howard Tuft wns elected
twenty-seventh President of tho United
States on Tuesday by n plurality In
the popular voto of over 1,207,000
votes.
Ho will have 327" votes In tho elec
toral college to 150 for Bryan.
It was a clean sweep for tbo Re
publicans nil over. 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.
Just think of HI New York City
going for tho Republican standard
bearer by a plurality of over 18,000.
This nlono shows bow llttlo tho hold
Bryan bad on Democracy.
William Howard Taft goes Into tho
White House carrying with him tbo
confidence and highest esteem of tho
American people.
There has never been n better
equipped man for tho position, and
that be will prove equal to the tasks
of that great office is the conviction of
every intelligent American citizen.
Tbo American people have, as usual,
chosen wisely.
Following Is Chicago's voto by
wards for President:

As usual tho Kngle was on tho wlu
ner.
And It snowed tho next tiny, which
was very appropriate. .
Tho small Prohibition voto can ens
lly be explained, Tho members of that
party were so busy voting for Bryan
they forgot all about their own candi
date. 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. Dooley and sonio
others, tho Democratic ticket wns tho
weakest ever put up. It was beateu
from tho start.

WILLIAM H. TAFT,
President-Elect of the United 8tates.
hie. Rut the pity of It Is that such
good men ns William Legner, Cyril R.
.Taiulux, Joseph E. Flanagan, James
C, Dooley and a few others had to bo
dragged -down to defeat by It.
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.) Governor nud gavo
Tuft a plurality estimated at 18,000.
Montana gavo Tnft ,a ionillty nnd re
elected Norrls, Democrat, Governor.
Tuft's probable cabinet, according to
close friends of tho President-elect, will
bo as follows:
Secretary of State Elllm Root.

voto going?
It wns a grand victory.
And Brooklyn went for Taft. Can
you beat It?
Every North Sldo ward went for
Tnft.
Candidates for city treasurer, city
clerk and aldermen, nro beginulug to
crop up.
General satisfaction reigned su
premo Wednesday morning.
Democrats from ono end of the
couutry to tho other are uow wearing
tho smile that won't como off. There's
a reason.
Senator Albert J. Hopkins' election
on tho tlrst ballot Is assured.

DENEEN TRIUMPHS.
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
