WILSON ELECTORAL VOTE.
“Nj Possibility of Election Being:
Thrown Into the House.M
The World sees no possibility that
the election of a President will be
thrown into the House of Represen
tatives.
It will require 266 electoral votes
to choose a President, and 178 must
be conceded to Governor Wilson at
the outset. These 178 votes are rep
resented by the States of Alabama.
Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Louisiana. Maryland,
Mississippi, Missouri, North Car
lina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Ten
nessee, Texas and Virginia.
That makes It necessary for Gov
ernor Wilson to win S8 out of the
remaining 3.73 electoral votes.
Twenty-nine of them can be found
in New Jersey and Indiana, which
are sure to go Democratic. Fifty-two
more can be found in New York and
Connecticut, which are reasonably
certain to go democratic. Nebraska,
with 7 votes, would give Governor
Wilson the necessary majority.
But Demoeratic prospects are much
bright^ than this. Mr. Bryan car
ried Colorado and Nevada in 1908.
Govenor Wilson is likely to carry
them thi1! year, with the addition of
North Dakota. These three States
have 14 electoral votes. Wilson's
chances In Ohio are better than Taft's
or Roosevelt’s and Ohio has 24 votes.
Senator Gardner predicts that Wilson
will carry Maine, with 6 votes, and
nobody famaliar with political condi
tions in that State can regard this
as an idle boast. In addition. Demo
cratic prospects in Massachusetts are
as great as any other prospects and
they are anything but discouraging
In Pennsylvania. Massachusetts has
18 electoral votes and Pennsylvania
has 38.
Any reasonable calculator based
on the existence of a Republican par
ty would give Wilson more than 300
electoral votes, but with the Repub
lican party shot to pieees it 1s a ques
ion whether the warring Taft-Roose
velt forces will save anything of va
lue from the wreck.—New York
