Dr. J. IL Carnoehan, the Governor's
family physician, who dressed the
wound, usued the following statement
about It to-night:
"When I ssw Governor Wilson this
afternoon I found he had received a
laceration of the scalp about three
Inches in length Otherwise he was In
good condition and seemed to be suf?
fering from no Hi effects."
The Governor's family was kept
busy answering the telephone to-night,
alleviating the worry of friends who
had heard alarming reports, they said,
a boat the accident.
The mishap occurred In the early
hours ef the morning. The Governor
had spoke* iaat night at Mad thank,
and left for Princeton, a distance of
torty-Sve miles, shortly before 11
o'clock. Be rode In the HmousJne car

yer wno lives at Red Bank, accom?
panied by Captain WllMasa J. McDon?
ald, his personal bodyguard, who was
shaken up and bruised
"The macMae was running about
fifteen miles an hour.*' narrated the
Governor to-night, "and we were going
very smoothly near Hlghtstown when
the Jar came. The chauffeur did not
see the mound of earth, being deceived
by a shadow thrown across the road.
Aa we strack. Captain McDonald was j
thrown against the roof of the car. {

The physician shaved the Governor's'

about the accident, and naked Dr. Titus

Points to Legislative
Achievements During
His Administration.
President, in Election Eve State?
ment, Assails Both Democrats
and Progressives, Taking
Final Flings at Wilson and
Roosevelt?Leaves for
Home in Cincinnati.
New York. November 3.?President
Taft Issued a statement hers to-night
shortly before his departure for Cin?
cinnati. It said In part:
"On the eve of the national election tt
Is suitable that a short summary
should be made of the reasons why the
Kepublican party is entitled to sup?
port. That party for four years naa
been responsible for the administration
of the government. 2nd baa left a re?
cord of success in effective and effi?
cient legislative administration,, ane of
legislative accomplishment that is not
surpassed by any administration since
the war.
"It has changed a deficit or more
than 150.000.000 to a surplus of more
thsn $30.000.000 by incresslng the'
revenue and reducing governmental ex?
"Its achievements la legislation show
thst it has made definite progress so
tar aa national legislation can pro?
duce progress in statutes looking to
the aid and relief of those classes in
their community who have had reason
heretofore to complain of the unjust
operation of the lawa governing their
?relation to employers and to the com?
munity at large. The Republican tariff
legislation of the Congress of *190?. j
while not perfect, has actually reduced]
excessive tariff rates and has yet re-j
tslned the protective features which]
have been so Instrumental in creating!
industrial prosper'ty. j
"The antitrust laws upon the statute
books have been enforced without re?
gard to persons and without fear or!
favor, and the resulting decrees, tf al-'
lowed to have their normal operation. I
will tend to restore competition and]
will remove the oppression that the;
statute was passed to prevent.
"In this view of what has been done
ia-the lsss fssi yaws, the Republi?
can party should not now be turned
out of office. Its promises have been
complied with, real progress has been
effected, and its conduct of the econo?
mic policies of the government has
been such as to make it possible for
the country to enjoy snd prolong the
widespread and growing prosperity
now at hand.

"Again. If the Republican party is
turned out of office, what party ?s to
succeed? One of the opposing par
ties waa scarcely four months ago a
part of the Republican party itself.
It has adopted a platform attacking j
the existing Constitution of the eoun- j
try, promising an attempt to destroy i
the Independence of the judiciary and I
proposing measures which would sap J
the foundations of representative
Democratic constitutional government.
It offers to the public a program of
supposed benefits which are nbt with?
es the ability of a national party to
accomplish. The so-called Progressive
party Is necessarily a minoicty party.
A vote for ft can only ha a rota
against the Republican party, aad for
the Democrat'c presidential candidate.
'The Democratic party declares in
favor of a tariff for revenues only, and
bolda that a protective tariff is not
only unwise, ftut also unconstitutional.
The changes proposed by the Perns
frits may fairly be judged by the j
bills paeaed by the Democratic ma?
jority in the last Congress, which 1
vetoed as President. These bUls would
have so affected the Industries covered
by {heir terms ?* seriously to impair
their value and prosperity. Mr. Wil?
son, the candidate of the Democratic
party, has made so many different snd |
differing statements as to his attitude
upon the tariff with a view to evading {
the charge that a Democrat la aamtats-.
tration means an injury to Industrial |
prosperity, that ?t. is Impossible ta ?
tell what his attlfaSe ft. but It is not j
unfair to say that It Is in accord with
that of the majority of his party ?nj

some parts of the country has become
so serious that the Interstate Com?
