*NDobtfl (three votes).
The election on last Tuesday
was a great Democratic landslide
and Woodrow Wilson and Thomas
Marshall have been elected Presi
dint and Vice President by the
biggest popular and electoral ma
jorities received by any candi
dates for years. We give the re
suit as is thus far known.
The State of Louisiana, of
course, goes largely Democratic.
The tax segregation amendment
is undoubtedly defeated, and it
is thought all of the nineteen
proposed amendments have been
defeated, without any exception.
We print a tabulation of the re
sult as far as can be obtained
from, unofficial sources.
Also we print a table of the
vote cast in Grant parish. The
figures are not official, but we
believe they are approximately
correct. -
Grant Parish Singing Convention.
Bentley, La., Oct. 29, 1912.
Our next session will be held with
Prospect church, four miles southwest
of Beatley, La., on Nov. 17, 1912, the
third Sunday in the month, at 9 a. i.
We earnestly urge that each class be
on hand promptly at 9 o'clock and have
their delegates. Also send a letter
stating who their delegates are, their
leader, and their organist. By doing
this it will save time. We are to have
only one day's session and we will be
rushed to finish our business. We hope
to meet with a large crowd and all have
a good time. If there is a class that
has not joined with us we will be glad
to extend them a hearty welcome at
this weoti Respectfully.
