DEMOCRATIC TIDAL WAVE
OVER THE COUNTRY
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.
In addition he took from Mr. Taft the following states
which the president carried four years ago: Connecticut,
Delaware, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, New
Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Dakota, West Virginia
and Wisconsin. He also carried Arizona and New Mexico,
territories four years ago. He was leading in and it was

RESULT IN IDAHO WILL

All Three of the Candidates for Gov
ernor are m the Race-Martin
Carries Ada County
With complete returns from not a
single county in the state and with
several counties with no return» at all
up to midnight and from others noth
ing but estimates In which no figures
are given and in which It 1» declared
figures will not be available before I
tomorrow, It looks very much at a late j
hour this morning as If It were any
body's fight for governor.
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,

enough returns to show which will get:

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.
