President Taft, in commenting
on the vote, conceded the election
of Wilson at 11 o'clock last night,
and made this statement:
'The election of Goernor Wil

economic policy of the country, es
pecially as to the tariff. If the
change can be made so that we

against the overwhelming total of
1.903 against it. There are thirty-four
precincts in the county.
Incomplete figures indicate that the
other amendments were defeated by
about the same ratio of votes. Hardly
any votes were cast in favor of any of
the propositions submitted.
If the Boone County vote is an in
dication, then in the country it is rea
sonable to suppose that most of the
amendments were defeated.

Objection To the Serv

I Mayor W. S. St. Clair and some
! members of the Citv Council became
quite wrought up last night over J.
A. Hudson's "defiance" before they
found out that they were misinformed
as to the conditions. Most of them
1 seemed under the impression that the
j resolutions adopted at the last meet
ing called upon Mr. Hudson to appear
in person and show that the tele
j phone rates charged in Columbia are
Instead of appearing Mr. Hudson
sent a communication to the council,
which Mayor St. Clair resented as
offering unasked for advice. The
mayor suggested that Mr. Hudson be
given one more opportunity to come
before the council, and that if he
failed to do so the marshal should be
( sent after him. A copy of the resolu
tions sent was then read and proved
to contain no request at all for Mr.
The rates charged by the Columbia
Telephone Company are not the cause
of protest so much as the minor an
noyances of the service, according to
K. B. Cauthorn. a member of the
council. It was claimed that patrons
of the company were insulted daily by
the operating department, and that
Mr. Hudson did not show sufficient
respect for the City Council.
"The ugly and contemptible nart of
this," said Mayor St. Clair, "is that
Mr. Hudson says he owes nothing to
the city, since he gets his franchise
from the state." Other councilmen
cited grievances against the com
pany. L. J. Slate moved that a commission
be appointed to investigate the serv-
, ice and determine what rates would be
just. The motion was allowed to die.
and instead, a motion by Professor
Defoe was adopted that at the next
regular meeting, two weeks from last
night, a nisht should be set when the
telephone situation should be dis
cussed. After this W. W. Garth quoted a
number of figures on telephone rates
in other college towns "for the mem
bers of the council to think about."

A large crowd all happy "saw"
the election returns as they were
thrown on a screen in the University
auditorium last night by the Univer
Democrats. Progressives and Re
publicansall were there. Wilson
followers were i:: the majority, but
the "Teddy" admirers evened up their
attendance by their noise. Taft men
were there, but so seldom did they set
a chance to cheer that the lack of
practice soon told. They soon left,
but the Bull Moose voters and their
sweethearts were "game" to the last.
Wilson backers stayed to see how big
the Democratic landslide would be.
The cheers that the Bull Moosers
gae when "Teddy" forced ahead in
some state were met with hisses from
