' THE LEHI SUN, TJEHi, UTAh H
HARDING OnHJDGE ffi VICTORIOUS
SENATE AND HOUSE
SAFEJOR G. 0. P.
Eastern States and the Middle
West Record Huge Majority
for Republican Ticket
Washington. As a result of the vcr
diet of the voters at the election on
luestlay, Warren 0. Hurtling will ,
our next president, while Calvin Coot
idgo will occupy the vice-president's
chair.
Soon after 11 o'clock Tuesday night,
Chairman White of the Democratic na
tional committee, conceded defeat for
his party.
At 12:110 o'clock Wednesday morn
ing, with actual returns far from com
pleto, Harding was certain of 270 votes
In the electoral college from the fol
lowing states: Connecticut, Doia
ware, Idaho, Illinois. Iowa, Kansas,
Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New
HainpMilre. New Jersey, Now York,
Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode
Island, Vermont, Washington, Wiscon
sin and Wyoming.
Ohio, Uie "mother of presidents,"
making a choice between her two fa
vorlte sons, hands the palm to War
ren (J. Harding. The Incomplete re
turns from Ohio show Harding beat
ing Cor 2 to 1 in territory which Wll
son carried overwhelmingly over
Hughm in 1010.
It Is believed tlmt when the llnal
count Is made, It will be shown that
Harding and Coolldgo havo been swept
Into office by tho biggest Republican
landslide since 1001, If not in the
history of the tuition.
A net Republican gain of "eight nnd
possibly ten" sents In tho senate Is
claimed by the Republican senatorial
I'oiumlttee on the basis of early re
imrls from the senatorial tight. Vic
tories were claimed In South nnk-ntn.
Idaho, Maryland, California, Nevada,
Oklahoma, Arizona and Colorado.
.Should the actual results bear out
the early Indications giving tho Repub
licans a gain of eight sents, they will
have at the next session 07 seats to
tho Democrat's 39, n majority of 18.
Should they win nil 10 seats, they will
have a majority of 22,
The 07th congress will be almost
overwhelmingly Republican on the
basis of the landslide election returns.
The Republicans will probably control
the house of representatives by n ma
jority of 8-1.
Convinced by early returns of his
election to the presidency, Wurren 0.
Harding Issued a statement snylng
thnt, Insteud of being exultant over
the result, lie wiw "more given to
prayer to Cod to make me capable of
playing my part."
Receiving the election returns ut his
home In Marlon, Ohio, Mr. Hurdlng de
clined during the early evening to
make any comment, and Issued his
statement only after the llgures had
p.led up majorities for blm which his
advisers declared made his election
certain.
"Republican landslide, Harding
wins," was the headline In an extra
edition of Covernor Cox's newspaper,
Ihe Dayton News, Issued at 10:10.
Will II. Hays, Republican national
chairman, Issued the following state
ment :
"Precisely ns has been the ease" In
every Instance since the founding of
the republic, tho American people,
when confronted with u grave deci
sion, have decided rightly. The re
turns seem to Indicate an unparalleled
majority. It Is n extraordinary de
gree of agreement on the part of the
people as to whom they wont to con
duct their common affairs and tho
co rs: ihoy want them to take."
Chairman "Whlto announced early
Wednesday morning: "As the nation.
al chairman of a party which Is, and
tuu always been, for America first, I
hue neat niessngci f congratulation
l,'i"",,p, "'"'"". dovernor Coolidge
and Mr Hays. I wW, ,e 8UCCPH,
Josi.pl, p, Tumulty, secretary to the
President In admitting defeat of Uie
Democratic ticket, said: "I was prlv
iiegeu to he associated with President
Wilson In nil his triumphs, r rejoice
! that I was permitted to ho nn humble
private In the ranks to be connected
with him In this iiour of Democratic
defeal. I m reminded of what the
president once said; 'I would rather
bo defeated In a cause that some dny
will triumph, than triumph In n cause
thnt some day will be defeated.'"
After receiving tho enrly election re
turn In his study, President Wilson
retired to his bedroom nt 0 o'clock
Tuesday night nnd was utsloep half un
hour afterwards.
Governor Cox, the Democratic can
didate, was nn early voter, but on nr
riving at the polls, found thnt more
thnn 200 of his neighbors had cast
their llallots nhead of him.
Accompanied by Mrs. Cox, the gov
ernor reached tho polling place, a com
bination burber shop, store and print
shop, nt 10 o'clock, but tho lino of
waiting voters delayed the deposit of
their ballots until 10:17 n. m.
Senator Harding and Mrs. Harding
reached the voting place at Marlon,
O., a red brick garage, shortly after
10 o'clock. They were cheered when
they entered tho building, and several
of those who were waiting nhead of
them offered to give up their places.
The senator refused, howvver, nnd
took lib place, thirteenth in tho line,
with Mrs. Harding Just nhend of him.
dovernor Coolldgo, Republican vice
presidential nominee, voted with Mrs.
Coolldgo nt Northampton, Mass.,
shortly after 0 a. in., nnd then left
by automobile for IJoston, where ho
received the election returns.
Taking the Republican landslide In

those which staunchly had supported
Coventor Cox and the league of na-
Iff in a lltltln ntitinl1flril lt trtt I rut tt
Harding curly Tuesduy evening. There
were then no llgures to assure It or to
give assurance thnt the sudden turn
ing ubout of four years ago which
changed apparent victory for Hughes
Into election for Wllsou would not hu
repented.
"The landslide Is here. It Is n tri
umph for Americanism and a repudi
ation thut forever burlcw tho Wilson
league of nations," said John T. Ad
unih, in cliargo of Republican western
headiuarters at Chicago.
Por the llrst time In American his

lowing the usual preliminaries, cast

At leiiHt 10 of the 34 United States

The presidential campnlgn practi
cally closed on Saturday night, when
the presidential candidates Senator
Harding nnd Coventor Cox wound
up their campaign travels In the west.
The senator chose Columbus us the
city In which he would deliver his liibt
address before election day, while (lov

gressively. Neither President nor Mrs. Wilson
went to Princeton, where thoy were
registered, but mullet their ballots.
Odds without precedence wero laid
on Senator Harding to win this year's
election, In the closing days of the
cnmpalgn. Tho odds quoted In New
York were 0 to 1 and 7 to 1, and there
are no wpiol odds on record since 1870,
the llrst year that bets were entered
ou records kept In Wnll Htreet.
Coventor Cox was tho longest shot
In the history of presidential betting,
having been conceded In the betting
us having even less chance thuii Wil
liam Jennings Itrynn had In his three
unsuccessful runs for tho presidency.
Only three times In the 1" pre-election
betting yours recorded has the
Wall street favorite fulled to win. Hut
In none of these years did Ihe odds
approach those of this year.
Wilson overturned Wall street's cal
culations by winning the election In
1010. despite odds of 10 to 9 on
Hughes. In tho Clevoland-Hlalnu light
In 1881 Wall street was wrong ngiiln,
betting 10 to 0 ugnlnst Cleveland. In
1888 the street was again ou the wrong
end. These ore tho exceptions, how
ever. This year the national and state
elections were notable for the num
ber of parties which nominated can
didates. Six partlos hud national tickets for
president and vlco president, though
by no moans In all tho states. These
tickets ore Republican. Democratic,
Socialist, Prohibition, Purmor-Iuhor
