WILSON IS ELECTED Chosen President of United States. DEMOCRAriC LANDSLIDE Party Sweeps Country in Bat tie oi tiio Ballots. SOLID SOUTH IS STILL SOLID Roosevelt Runs Second Country Over, With Taft Third. New York, Nov. G.—Woodrow Wil son, whose experience in active politics is only a little more than two years old, will be the next president of the United States. He carried thirty-eight of the forty eight states. He will have a vote of 412 out of 531 in the electoral college, 146 more than enough to elect, and a majority of 293 over all his competi tors. His popular majority in the states he carried is indicated to be 2,149,000.' His plurality over the pluralities of Taft and Roosevelt is 1,182,000. Colonel Roosevelt ran second, and the returns indicate that he will have 102 electoral votes. The early re turns also show that he carried six states —Illinois, Pennsylvania, lowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Washing ton. Taft’s indicated electoral vote is seventeen from four states —New’ Hampshire, Rhode Island, Utah and Vermont. Returns Come Slowly. Returns from any of the western states, from which any accurate no tion can be obtained of how r the states of the plains and beyond the Rockies have voted for president and vice president are exceptionally slow in arriving. The ballot machines of Minnesota have rebelled against the liberties taken with them by the split ters of tickets and a legal question has arisen as to whether votes put into them after 9 o’clock, the hour for closing the polls, are legal votes. New Mexico, which the Progressives thought as sure for Roosevelt, has apparently been carried by Wilson. California is safely for Roosevelt, but North Dakota, which the Democrats thought w as safe for Wilson, seems to be equally divided between Taft and Roosevelt. Wilson Has Electoral Majority. But in spite of the slowness of re turns from the plains and mountain states of the west, there seems to be no doubt that Woodrow’ Wilson, wit! the solid south and the solid east, or almost the solid east, behind him, w’ill not only have a plurality of the popu lar vote, but will have a majority in the electoral college. Results in the several states are summarized as follow’s: New York —Carried by Wilson with between 150,000 and 200.000 plurality. Congressman William Sulzer defeated Straus and Hedges for governor. Illinois —Roosevelt is victorious by plurality of 100,000. Edward F. Dunne (Democrat) is elected governor over Charles S. Deneen. present incumbent. Indiana —Claimed for Wilson and Ralston (for governor.) lowa —Gives electoral vote to Roose velt and makes Clarke (Republican) governor. Michigan—lncomplete returns indi cate state is solidly for Roosevelt. Massachusetts —Gives Wilson 80,000 majority and re-elects Governor Foss by 70,000. Pennsylvania—Conceded to Roose velt. California —Carried by Roosevelt. Mississippi—Ten electorial votes for Wilson by large majority. Florida —Wilson gets all six elec toral votes of state. North Carolina —Democrats elect state ticket and congressional dele gation, and give Wiison at least 20,- 000 majority. South Carolina —For Wilson by about 60,000. Nevada —Wilson carries state, party lines being ignored in the voting. Georgia—Strong for Wilson. State officers and legislators all Democrats. Arkansas —Wilson carries state by plurality greater than that of Bryan in 1906. Virginia —Wilson carries the state by 40,000. Delaware —Gives substantial ma jority for Wilson. Legislature is Dem ocratic. Kentucky —Congressional delegation is composed of nine Democrats, one Republican and one Progressive. Missouri —Swept by Wilson and Major, Democratic candidate for gov- ernor. Congressman Borland safely elected. Nebraska — Apparently carried by Wilson. Wisconsin —Large plurality for Wil son is indicated. Vermont —Gives its electoral vote to Roosevelt. Minnesota —Claimed for Wilson by 39,000. INDIANA IS DEMOCRATIC Wilson Looms up Strong in Hoosier State Balloting. Running Mate’s Home State Gives New Jersey Candidate Big Lead Over Opponents. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 6. Wood row Wilson showed remarkable strength at the polls in this, the home state of his running mate, Governor Marshall. With returns received from 517 of the 3,172 prerircts in Indiana, Wilson was far in the lead, with Roosevelt following and Taft, trailing last. The figures then stood as follow’s: Wilson, 64,157; Roosevelt, 36,340; Taft. 31,691. The returns are in contrast to the close contest between Taft and Bryan in 1908, when the Republican candi date polled 76,170 and the Democrat, 75,003. The election of S. M. Ralston for governor is also claimed by the Dem ocrats. WILSON LEADS IN WISCONSIN Taft Running Second and Colonel Third —Karel Probably Governor Mihvaukee, Wis., Nov. 6. lnco mplete returns from fifty-six precincts outside of Milwaukee county give Wilson a small lead over Taft, with Roosevelt third. Desultory returns from scattering precincts, while giv ing Wilson a substantial lead, do not indicate the strength of the Repub lican vote. Governor McGovern did not show the expected strength so far, thirty two out of 146 precincts in the city giving him third place, with Karel, Democrat, in a two to one lead over Thompson, Socialist. Socialist strength is expected from the w’estern part of the state, though Karel is maintaining a lead, wiiich with the normal state vote would seem to assure his election. Milwau kee county is apparently going for Karel. GEORGIA ALL DEMOCRATIC Wilson Carries State—State Officers and Legislature of Same Faith. Augusta, Ga., Nov. 6 Georgia has returned all of her Democratic con gressmen. The state house officials have all been elected and are Demo cratic. The legislature is strictly Democratic, not a Repcblican or Pro gressive being returned. Wilson carries the state by two to one majority. Tenth congresional dis trict went for Wilson by seven to one o/er all other candidates. The Social ist \ote throughout the state is practic ally nothing. Rcosevelt. received more popular than President Taft. due.to the influence of Tom Watson, who desert ed Wilson two weeks ago, charging that Wilson had joined the Knights of Columbus. Watson’s following as tbiowii into the Progressive column by this means and caused the Republican vote given Taft four years ago (11 692) to be cut nearly in half. MICHIGAN FOR ROOSEVELT Incomplete Returns Show Colonel Received Heavy Vote. Detroit, Mich., Nov. 6. —Scattering and incomplete returns from through out the state indicate that. Roosevelt is leading by a good plurality. Musselman. Republican, and Ferris, Democrat, candidates for governor, are running very close. Complete returns will be late on account of the complicated ballot. One hundred and ten precincts in Michigan outside of Detroit give Taft 10,622, Wilson 17,343, Roosevelt 20,- 114. Representative McKinley Wins. Champaign, 111., Nov. 6. —Meager re turns from the Nineteenth congres sional district indicate the re-election of Congressman William B. McKinley by a greatly reduced plurality. In complete returns from Champaign county indicate a plurality of 800 for McKinley. Roosevelt Indorsed by Oyster Bay. Oyster Bay, N. Y., Nov. 6. —Colonel Roosevelt carried Oyster Bay, his home town, by a plurality of 292 over Wilson, the vote standing: Roose velt, 510; Wilson, 218; Taft, 87. Delaware Goes for Wilson. Philadelphia, Nov.- 6. —Wilson car ries Delaware by s substantial ma jority, with Brockson, Democrat, for congressman. Democrats will con trol the legislature. Wilson Gets Nevada. Reno, Nev., Nov. 6. —Nevada voted strong. Every indication is that Wil son will carry the state. Party lines were ignored. The count will be very Slow. WOODROW WILSON Elected President of United States by Great Landslide. Photo 1911’. 07 American Press ASso WILSON GARRIES NEW YORK STATE Plurality is Somewhere Over 150,CG0 FAVORED BY goo™ AND CITY Democratic Nominees Come Down to Harlem River with Large Ma jority for First Time in Many Years. New York, Nov. 6. —Wilson and Marshall have carried New York state by a plurality of anywhere from 150,000 to 200,000. It is impossible to give close figures to indicate the Dem ocratic presidential sweep of the state. For the first time in years, a Dem ocratic presidential candidate has come dow’n to the Harlem river with a plurality to add to his own plurality in the greater city of New York. Wil son and Marshall seem to have out run both Roosevelt and Taft in the Republican strongholds beyond the northern barriers of the Democratic city of New York. Sulzer Wins Governorship. But. the Democrats this year have seemed to stop at nothing. Congress man William Sulzer has knocked the spots out of both Oscar Straus, his Progressive opponent. and Job Hedges, the Republican standard bearer. Mr. Sulzer has a plurality of something like 140,000. Wilson has probably carried the greater city by not far from 125,000. New York, in addition to choosing Democratic candidates in the state and nation, has put the Democrats in power, apparently, in both branches of the state legislature. It looks as if the New York state senate would stand thirty-three Demo gressives and Socialists, if the Pro gressives and Socialists, if the Pro gressives and Socialists have elected any members of the state senate. The lower branch of the state legislature will be almost two to one Democratic. Indications are that, the lower branch of the legislature would stand 100 Democrats to fifty Republicans, and any other parties that may have elected assemblymen. COLONEL HAS PENNSYLVANIA State Is Believed to Have Given Roosevelt Majority of 40,000. Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 6. —Roose- velt is believed to have won in this state by a majority of 40,000. The vote in this city is very close, but the returns from Pittsburg and other of the larger cities are giving the colonel enough votes, it is thought, to offset the vote here. Senator Penrose said that, irrespec tive of the Keystone state vote, he did not believe Roosevelt could win in the final count. Democrats Claim Minnesota. New York, Nov. 6. —Chairman Mc- Combs of the Democratic national committee received a telegram from Fred P. Lyiich, Democratic national committeemen from Minnesota, in which the latter claims Minnesota for Wilson by 39,000. Wilson Sweeps Missouri. Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 6.—lndica tions are that Wilson and Major (for governor) have swept the state. In Kansas City and Jackson county Roosevelt seems to have run second. Borland (Democrat) for congress is apparently elected by a safe plurality. South Carolina Strong for Wilson. Columbia. S. C., Nov. 6. —South Carolina went Democratic by about 60,000 for Wilson.
