NOW III LIMELIGHT Hughes-Wilson Battle Compares Favorably With Renowned Hays-Tildea Tilt ANOTHER AFTERMATH IS FAINT POSSIBILITY Dispute Over Electoral Vote Cause for Argument May Spring Up Again Will political history repeat itself? There are so maijy points of similar ity between the Hughes-Wilson and .the Hayes-Tilden contest that the his tory of the latter memorable struggle has a renewed interest. For days after the election Tilden was given the election by the import ant New York journals, but Republi can headquarters! contended! that Hayes would have the electoral vote. Tilden, Democrat, had carried New York. Indiana, New Jersey and Con necticut and the solid south, by the Democrat count. But the Republican headquarters claimed the election of Hayes by one electoral vote, based on the belief that the state of South Carolina, Florida and Louisiana had gone Republican. These states were in the transition period. Negro government was giving way to white control, and elections were notoriously fraudulent. The ques tion arose how far it would be just to go behind the returns of the various state canvassing hoards. There was considerable bitterness. Fraud was generally charged on both sides. Finally, a solution was arrived at by the creation of the Electoral commis sion, in which five associates of the su preme bench were joined by an equal number from each of the two houses. The commission refused to go be hind the returns and Hayes was de clared elected. There promises to be some after math to this election. Doubtless there will be recounts in the Republican states. Mitchell And Miss Rankin RunningEven Helena. Mont., Nov. 9.—Harry B. Mitchell, Democrat, and Miss Jean nette Rankin, Republican, are running neck and neck for Montana's second seat in congress. John M. Evans, Democrat, has won his own seat again, by apparently 10. 000 majority. As scattered precincts from isolated sections come in, Miss Rankin gains steadily. Only a third of the vote on congress is counted.

Hughes spent today much as he did yesterday, studying election returns. The nominee and his wife remained in doors, except for a a two-hour motor ride, in the afternoon, but decided to relax the vigilance of the watch to night and went to a theater. For the first time in three nights, the nominee's personal staff was given an opportunity to get a full night's rest. Air. Hughes dismissed them all when he went to the/theater and smil ingly instructed them not to return until tomorrow./1 Mr. Hughes' day was punctuated by conferences with William R. Wilcox, the Republican national chairman, George R. Wickersham. Everett Colby and George W. Perkins of the Repub lican campaign committee. Mr. Wil cox assured the nominee of his con victions that full returns would show the success of the Republican ticket1 To this Mr. Perkins added assurances that California, New Mexico and Min nesota undoubtedly would be found in the Hughes' column after the count had been completed. Mr. Wickersham declined to com ment on his visit to the nominee, as did .Mr. Colby. The former said h.i was present merely as a "volunteer helper." Mr. Wilcox, on leaving, said, iliere probably would be recounts in all the states, where the vote was close, and he would do all that Was necessary to "safeguard our interests." Another subject mentioned at the conference with the nominee was the possibility that California might divide its electoral vote, as in 1912. At that hour the returns from the state were closer than at any previous time of the day. That contingency, however, was re garded as a possibility rather than a probability.

The next year he entered Princeton university, being graduated in 1879 after taking honors as a debater and a writer on political economy. It was while in Princeton that Wilson laid the foundation for his broad knowledge of economics and international law that later landed him in the presidency.' After taking a year's law course' kt the University of Virginia. Wilson started practicing law at Atlanta in 1881. In 18S3 he entered Johns Hopkins university for a twryeare' course in history and politi cal economy.

In his eight years' service as this university's head, during which ho democratized the institution (it had been known as a "club for rich men's sons"), Wilson attracted the attention of Col.

The same year he was elected governor of New Jersey His governmental exploits in New Jersey led to Wilson's nomina tion for the presidency by the Democrats in 1912, after a hard fight, and his subsequent election.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1916 TT Authorities Deeply Interested in Announcement IChat Vote May Be Contested ELECTORS REGARDED AS STATE OFFICERS Legal End of Election Comes in February When Delegates Cast Their Votes Washington, Nov. 9.—Government officials here were deeply- interested, and not a little concerned, over today's announcements of Democratic and Re publican leaders that contests might b6 expected with a possibility of legal proceedings over the votes for presi dential electors in several of the close states. Examination of the decision of the supreme court, and of the Revised, Statutes, disclosed that electors are plainly regarded as state officers. The highest court has held, in two leading cases, that questions of their proper or improper choice are for state elec tion officers or state courts to deter mine, and that the federal government is not lawfully concerned, even if fraud is shown. The revised statutes provide that the electors shall meet in each state, and "give their votes" on the second Monday in January, following election, at places to be designated by the state legislatures. In the ordinary course of proceedings, where the rights of electors to sit, is uncontested, their votes would be counted in theTiouse of representatives here on the second Wednesday in February and this would be the legal end to the election. The statutes further provide that where the state shall have laws made prior to the election, determining methods by which controversies or contests over electors shall be settled, whether by judicial proceedings or otherwise, these laws "shall be bind ing and shall govern in counting the electoral vote." Officials here were under the impression that it would be found tliat all the states that may be involved in contests have laws of this character. Gov. J. A.
