PIONEER PAPER OF ARIZONA.
PRESCOTT, ARIZONA WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER , 1912.
WILSON SWEEPS COUNTRY
From Maine to California the Country
Rallies to Hii Support and Accords
The election of Wilson and Marshall In' a safe majority
of electoral votes, is made certain by incomplete returns re
ceived from the country at large up to 10 o'clock. With
Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, and other large states repre
sented by only meager reports, the success of the Democratic
ticket in a majority of heavily populated states is certain.
Early returns give Wilson the "Solid South," embracing all
the Democratic states south of the Potomac, and Connecticut,
Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New
York, and apparently West Virginia, "Indiana and Missouri.
A Roosevelt victory in Illinois was Conceded early hy the
evening by Democratic taadcrsYand he.promiscd at" 10 o'clock
to carry witty it a, plurality greater than 100,000. New
Hampshire arid "Vermont. Had apparently, given a majority to
Taft on thc?basis6f' fa'irly comprehensive returns received at
that time: rates-whqre the results were reasonably certain
at 10 o'clojgjay'ejthd .following electoral vote Wilson 267,
Roosevelt 2f9,'taft 8. '
Rhode Island also became a doubtful state on the returns
near ' midnight, ..ba$ed . oiitrav,yjotcs , .reported and,, fffi.
not wholly improbable its five electoral votes' would go ,to
"Wilson. Early returns gave an apparent victory for Taft in
New Hampshire and Vermont but the Taft plurality dwindled
;is midnight approached to very few hundred votes in each
state and it seemed likely will be wiped out entirely.
The vote in Utah as reflected in the dispatches up to
midnight gave indications that the state might be carried for
Taft. The vote in Pennsylvania is amazingly close, the re
turns from more than a thousand precincts embracing over
185,000 votes giving each of the three leading presidential
candidates more than 60,000 votes. Taft's lead in the Phila
delphia districts was offset by the heavy vote olled by Roose
velt and Wilson in other parts of the state.
Many surprises are shown m the returns. The New
York State Assembly seems to be overwhelmingly Demo
cratic. In Illinois the indications were that Judge Dunne,
Democratic candidate for Governor, won notwithstanding the
heavy Roosevelt victory. Former Speaker Cannon seemed
to be defeated for re-election for Congress in Illinois. In
addition to Roosevelt's apparently certain victory in Illinois
confident claims by the Roosevelt managers that Iowa, Michi
gan and Kansas would fall into the Roosevelt column seemed
verified by partly complete returns at an early hour this
(Wednesday) morning. Returns from California are meager
but left the state- in doubt between Wilson and Roosevelt.
Uncertaintv reo-nrdinr- Vermont is settled bv the announce-
T j o"- o
mcnt of the complete vote which gave Taft a majority of 924
votes. At 12:45 this (Wednesday) morning, the Providence
(R. I.) Journal eonceded that state to Wilson with the vote
close in New Hampshire. It seemed probable that New Eng
land entire, with the exception of Vermont, has gone over
to the Democratic column.
Reports at midnight give indications that the electoral
vote of Wilson will pass the three hundred mark. It is cer
tain Illinois will give Roosevelt an overwhelming majority.
The race in Pennsylvania is sq close to bring all the three
candidates within the range of success.
Indications contained in the early incomplete returns
were that the Democrats make gains in the United States
Senate, but whether these gains will be sufficient to change
the political complexion of the Senate is undetermined. In
New Jersey it appeared likely a Democrat would succeed a
Republican and while Progressive leaders in Colorado will
not concede it it appeared from Wilson gains indicated in
early returns the possibility that two Democratic Senatori
will be returned from that state. In Montana, Walsh, the
Democrat, is slightly in the lead in the spattering returns.
Warren, Republican, is running ahead of Kendrick, Demo

you havplayed in the organization, and conduct of the cam
paign which lias been fought out upon essential issues. The
great cause has triumphed. Every Democrat, every true Pro

may go handin hand." This was Wilson's first utterance of .

Wilson to t the presidency. This means an early change in
the country's economic policy in reference to the tariff. J
this change can be made without halting prosperity I sin
cerely hope it may be. The vote for Roosevelt, the third
party candidate, and for Debs, the Socialist candidate, 'is a
warning their propaganda in favor of fundamental changes
in our constitutional representative government has formid
able support. While experiment alid change in the tariff are
being carried out by the Democratic administration it be
hooves the Republicans to gather again to the party standard
and pledge a new faith to their party's principles, organize
again and defend the constitutional government handed down
to us by our fathers."
