(By United Press).
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 7. Offi
cially anticipated, President-elect
Wilson will sail'November 16 for the
Bermudas to be gone two weeks. He
will be accompanied by Mrs. Wilson.
The trip will be one of absolute
quiet as the candidate is worn out.
By his vacation, Wilson hopes to
avoid the horde of office seekers from
all parte of the United States which
will flock in on him. When he reLouisiana
turns in December, definite plans for
appointments will be mapped out.
Woodrow Wilson, having rolled up
a big majority in the electoral col
lege now faces the problem of choos
ing his cabinet. It is known that he
made no promises or pledges before
election day but leading Democrats
m.the nation consider that the fol
lowing appointments have practic
ably been decided upon:
William JeTmrngaj,Began O*L sec
retary of state.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley as secretary
of agriculture.
Louis D. Brandeis as attorney gen
eral.
Fred B. Lynch and John Burke
have been mentioned as presidential
timber.
The three men above mentioned
for portfolios are among the leading
men of the country. Mr. Bryan was
three times candidate for the presi
dency, is recognized as an orator and
writer of ability and is considered
one of the country's leading econom
ists. Dr. Wiley recently left the pure
food bureau because his work was
hampered. Louis Brandeis is the
man who declared that the railroads
were wasting a million dollars a day
through mismanagement.

WILL PRACTICE LAW.
Columbus, O., Nov. 7. Defeated
but not discouraged, Taft already is
considering plans of strengthening
the Republican party. He stated to
night that the party will continue
active as heretofore and that it
should be successful. Taft hopes to
see an organized "National Republi
can club," entirely apart from that
national committee, which shall cher
ish the principles of the party and
be the source of political activity for
all time. To the suggestion that he
might be the party's 1916 nominee,
Taft onl smiled, repeating his in
tention of returning to the practice
of law in Cincinnati. Taft said he
earnestly hoped that Wilson would
not call an extra session of congress
to revise the tariff Taft departed
for Washington tonight, where he
expects to remain much of the time
until March 4.

Non-partisan Ticket Over Van
Lear, Socialist.
(By United Press).
Minneapolis, Nov. 7.Wallace G.
Nye was elected mayor of this city
by a majority of 2,500. His opponent
was Thomas Van Lear, Socialist. The

iar. The law provides for a non-
partisan campaign but the Socialists
refused to enter the primary claim-
ing that they would be jobbed out of
the nomination. Nye and Charles
D. Gould were nominated in the pri-
mary and then Gould withdrew a
few days before the election in order
that the winner would have a major-
ity. Nye won and Van. Lear was de-
feated

boys may have a path of roses in get
ting their education, but Preston and
Audley Hanson, members of the Wal
la Walla (Wash high school foot
ball team, are treading the milky
way getting through school. The
boys' home is on a ranch some dis
tance from Walla Walla, and lack of
funds seriously handicapped them in
their ambition to get an education
Tney solved their problem by taking
with them to Walla Walla two cows
from their father's farm Each morn
ing and evening they milk the cows
and deliver the milk to regular cus
tomers, securing money in this way
to pay their expenses. Business is
so good they are considering bring

GRAND RAPIDS IS COMING
Cancellation of Two Harbors Game
Makes Possible One With Be
midji for Championship.
LAST CONTEST OF SEASON
Coach JSarl-parson, of the high
school football team, received a mes-
GrandRapids today to the
the %an&Hapids team
grounds Saturday afternoon. This
game is made possible by the can
cellation of the Grand Rapids-Two
Harbors game.
Grand Rapids claims the champ
ionship of the range and has beaten
Bemidji once so claims the champ
ionship of Northern Minnesota. The
Bemidji boys ay that they did not
get a square deal at Grand Rapids
and can win on their home grounds.
Should Beftidji beat Grand Rapids,
the local men will claim the champ
ionship of Northern Minnesota as
Crookston refused to play their
scheduled game.
The game next Saturday will not
begin until nearly four o'clock as the
Grand Rapids team will not arrive
in Bemidji until the 3:30 Great
Northern is in. It is hoped that
the game will bring out a large at
tendance as the local boys feel they
need every encouragement possible.
The Grand Rapids team is heavier
than Bemidji, has a string of good
plays to win, the local boys will have
to work hard. A close contest is
promised. The line-up will be print
ed Friday.
DEER SEASON OPENS SUNDAY
A number of Bemidji sportsmen
are making preparations to go on a
hunt next Sunday, opening day.
The favorite parts of this section,
according to men who should know
are in the vicinity of Kelliher and
Whitefish and- parts jiorth of Red
Lake.

New York, Nov. 7. Latest re^~

votes in the electoral college which
is an unprecedented record. Eoose
velt will be second with the electoral,
vote of Pennsylvania, South. IHkfttn,

of seventy-seven. Taft is third. He
has surely carried Idaho, and Ver

and Illinois which he had steadily
claimed from the earliest report
Porty-six out of sixty-eight pre
cincts, but with the entire Northern
end of the county to hear from, give
Geil 1,174 and George French 999
for county treasurer. Geil is run

Is sixteen behind J. O. Harris for
register of deeds. Mr. Moon had a
lead on Harris at one time this morn
ing but the present office holder
gradually caught up and on the
count of forty-six precincts was
ahead by eighteen votes.
The surprise of the campaign is
in the vote given Andrew Johnson
for sheriff, He has received, so far,
but few votes less than W. B. Stew
art and Stewart received many votes
from women. Johnson has received
a larger percent of the total vote
for his office than any other candi
date.
Debs is running a good second in
the county and there are but four
votes between Roosevelt, Debs and
Wilson. Taft is making a bad third
and Chafin is barely heard. It is
claimed that Wilson is strong in the-
upper end of the county and that the
Baudette and Spooner vote will carry
the county for the Democrats. All
parties concede that the Socialists
have a good chaance of carrying the
county for Debs.
Eberhart has a safe lead here for
governor and on the state ticket the
Republicans are leading all along
the line. The contest for associate
justices is close in this county and
it appears that the contest for rep-"
resentative is close between O'Neil,
Ritchie and Pladson.
