No. 112 DEMOCRATIC TIDAL WAVE OVER THE COUNTRY BIG MAJORITY ELECTORAL IS TOR OF THE VOTES Carried at Least 32 States, with 354 Votes in the Electoral College Congress is Democratic New York, Nov. 6.—Woodrow Wilson, Democrat, swept the country yesterday. Returns early today showed that the predictions that the Democratic party would be put in control in the nation were well founded. A popular as well as an electoral plurality was insured for Wilson by a united party in every state of the union. He carried 32 states with a total vote in the electoral col lege of 354 out of 531 votes. He carried his own state of New Jersey. He wrested from President Taft his native state of Ohio, and from Colonel Roosevelt his home commonwealth of New York. Not alone that, but for the first time since the organi zation of the Republican party, a Democratic candidate will get the electoral vote of Maine. Wilson goes into office with a heavy Democratic con gress behind him and assurances that the next senate will be made up of men of his party faith. He will be able to force through the measures to which he is pledged. Wilson carried with him to victory Democratic sena tors and congi'essmen everywhere. He carried through enough members of legislatures to insure the retirement of Senator Briggs to private life and the elevation to the senate of former Congressman William Hughes, in whose behalf Wilson stumped the state during the last few days. Wilson carried the following states, all of which were carried by Bryan four years ago: Alabama, Kentucky, Nebraska, South Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nevada, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Virginia.

Martin has carried the southwest by a big lead over Haines, with Hawley a second. Haines has beaten Martin badly In the southeast with Hawley again a second. If Hawley should lead either of the others In the north, or If either of the others should lead Haw ley In that section, that would deter mine who should be elected . , ... Each side is claiming a victory with j just grounds for the claim. If Mar- j tin comes down from the north with the vote he claimed lie would win. If Haines should come down with the ! vote he claimed, he would win. and If Hawley received the vote there he ! claimed, he will win. and there are not, . . . '___. . ... I enough returns to show which will get: . , , . , .. . j It look- at 'his time as if an exact | reproduction of the direct primary sit- , nation were to be re-enacted j Any claim of advantage made upon I returns received last night Is merely : a claim based upon prejudice or upon, a mere hope that the later retuhns would favor the candidate in whose be-I half such claims were made. The southeast has gone overwhelm ingly for Haines and Taft, according to reports received ln which, how ever, few figures are given. Martin has carried Ada county by 2000 over Haines and he has carried Canyon county by a much larger fig- J on his ln the southeast, while Hawley seems to have the best of it ln Lincoln, Blaine, Custer and Elmore. The Capital News refrains from making any claims for the very good I reason that there are insufficient lig ures upon which to base Intelligent claims until fuller returns are received.
