Taft. 30,000. Owing to the huge j^ze
of the ballot the count will not be con
cluded before noon tomorrow. On ac

certain of election.

turns from all the northern half of
the state cut off by a storm, and this
section admittedly strongly Democrat
ic. every indication at 11:30 o'clock
was that Roosevelt pluralities south
of the Tehachapi mountains would be
insufficient to offset Wilson's northern
lead and that the state would go for
the next president.
Los Angeles, the Roosevelt strong
hold, by all available ligures will give
Roosevelt only about 7000 plurality.
San Francisco will more than offset
this and the failure of the Progressives
throughout the remainder of the south
to poll their expected vote makes the

President Issues Statement
in Which Expresses Hope
That Business Will Not Be
Injured by Change.
Cincinnati, Nov. 5.—The following
statement was Issued by President
Taft at 10 o'clock at the home of
Charles P. Taft:
"The returns insure the election of
Governor Wilson to the presidency.
This means an early change In the
economic policy of the government in
reference to the tariff. If this change
can be made without halting prosper
ity I sincerely hope It may be. The
vote for Mr. Roosevelt, the third party
candidate, and for Mr. Debs, the So
cialist candidate,' is a warning that
their propaganda In favor of funda
mental changes In our constitutional
representative government has favor
able support. While the experiment
of a change in the tariff is being car
ried out by the Democratic adminis
tration, It behooves Republicans to
gather again to the party standard and
pledge anewtheir faith In their party
principles and to organize again to de
fend constitutional government hand
ed down to ns by our fathers.

close ranks and march forward to do
