THEY KILL DUCKS WITH
CLUBS IN DES MOINES
W. C. Church Sends Clipping Giving
Account of Original Method of
Killing Feathered Game.
W. C. Church, president of the
Church Lumber company of Des
Moines, Iowa, a gentleman who is
well known in this city, and whose
reputation for truth and veracity is
unquestioned, sends to his friends
here a clipping, taken from a Desthose
Moines paper, in which that thor
oughly reliable publication tells of
ducks and geese being killed with
clubs in the main streets of Desfor
Moines, as follows:
"Nothing more unusual was ever
witnessed in the city of Des Moines
than the killing of many ducks and
geese during the flight of Sunday
night with ordinary clubs picked up
in the streets.
"Bert Parrish and Dave Schoon
over, who live near West Sixeeenth
street, got an even dozen birds
which were flying so low that they
became entangled in telephone and
electric wires. As the ducks fell to
the ground they were beaten to
death with clubs.
"Kerry Wilson, Eighth and Forest,
got one goose and two ducks in the
same manner. One of the birds was
fluttering in a mud puddle when Mr.
Wilson attacked it. A number of
boys in North Des Moines "got in"
on the slaughter and many families
enjoyed roast duck for dinner today.
"Old sportsmen say this is some
thing that has never happened in
the city before."
OHIO GOES STRONG FOR TAFT

INDIANA SPLITS ON
STATE AND NATION
raft Gets Electoral Vote, but
Democrats Elect Governor.
Indianapolis, Nov. 5.For the first
time since Thomas A. Hendricks was
elected governor on the Democratic
state ticket and U. S. Grant received
the electoral vote of the state for the
Republican national ticket Indiana has
given a plurality to the Republican
candidate for president and at the
same time elected the Democratic
candidate for governor. According to
the latest estimate Mr. Taft received
a plurality of about 15,000 and Thom
as R. Marshall was victorious over
Tames E Watson, Republican candi
date for governor, by about 8,000.
The congressional representation
from this state will probably be seven
Democrats and six Republicans.
The legislature is in doubt. Marion
county, with its twelve members of
the legislature, went heavily Demo
cratic for the county ticket and car
ried down with it the Republican leg
islative candidates and possibly Con
gressman Jesse Overstreet. One
the Republican leaders conceded that
lawmaking body is very close, but
he adhered to the opinion that the
lead the Republicans have in the sev
enteen holdover senators will save It
to the Republicans on joint ballot and
insure the re-election of Senator

Cheyenne, Wyo., Nov. 5.Complete
returns from lght out of thirteen
counties in Wyoming give Taft a plu
rality of 2,760. ^Democratic State
Chairman Stiiokney concedes the state
to taft by 5,000.
