ONE DOLLAR PER
DOWN IN" DEMOCRATIC DI NK LIN. ,
Down in Democratic Dunklin, where an election is the occasion for a
home-coming, the Democratic party has just finished piling up a majority
of 2000 against Col. Orren Wilson, Republican nominee for the Slate Sen
ate. It is unnecessary, of course, to say that Col. Wilson will not go to the
Senate, but it is essential that we hasten to say that Dunklin has quit
Unle.sS ail reports are spurious, Dunklin only voted one day instead of
the customary full week. We can attribute this apparent neglect only to
the fact that the forest fires compelled the brethcrn to transact their busi
ness hastily and hurry back. But they did well. In fact, they accomplished
a much in the single day as they have usually done in, a week, but we hesi
tate to believe the work was as artistically finished as when the eight-hour
day was not observed.
We are not complaining of the defeat of Col. Wilson. He is a good sport
and appreciates a joke whether it is p'ayed on him or on someone else. And
any Republican who runs for the Senate in this part of Missouri merely en
gages ia the spi.rt to a.-certaia how much punishment he can take without
exposing a streak of yellow.
Col. Wilson is defeated. Yea. verily: Hut he has the satisfaction of
knowing that Democratic Dunklin did it all alone and in the midst of a
Wiiii-j Dunklin sometimes pic.-er.ts one of the neighboring counties with a
Chri.-tmas gift by permitting one of their eilizeiis to go to the Senate, tao
Democrat- of that county uMially bottle the position up for one of the home
folks. It may aggravalc a person of scroti.- intentions to watch Dunkim
at the polls, but to us it has been a so-ig by day and a joy by night. Loag

LIVELY "DOINGS" PROMISED
G. O. P. Has No Chance in Senate as
Gains Made Were Not Sufficient
to Swing the Upper Branch
of the House
New York, Nov 9. So close is the
fight for control of the national house
of representatives that it seems with
in the range of possibilities that So
cialists and independents will hold the
balance of power in that body. Two
Socialists have been elected in New
York state and one independent in
Massachusetts. There is a chance
that one or two moie Socialists will
j be shown to have wen in YVilwaukeo.
j .vli hough returns are by no means
; complete from m?ny close congres
sional districts, the latest imiical ion
are that the next house will com
prise: Democrats, 217; Republicans,
-15; Socialists, i'; independent, 1. To
tal, 135. .Necessary to control, 218.
Whatever the exact figures may bi
as a result of the final returns enough
is now known to make it certain that
neither the Democratic nor the Repub
lican party will have a comfortable
working majority in the house. This
means that for the next I wo years
tin; president will have "congress on
his hands," and that lively 'dolnsa"
may be eonlidenUy expected in Wash
ington. If the Democrats have even one
man inajoiiiy it seems certain thai
they will re-dect Champ Clark of Mis
souri as speaker. If the Republicans;
should nose out in I he lead, the h ad
ing candidate for speaker would he
Representative Janus IC. Mann of Illi
nois, the present Republican floor
leader, who was returned to congress
by his Chicago district with a safe
majority. Mr. Mann, however, is re
garded as something of a czar by
pome of the Progressive Republicans
and it is probable that a fight would
be made against him.
Situation in Senate
Uuv!.r!- d gains by the Democrats,
made ;i,pan nt by returns from states
in which senatorial elections were
hfld Tinsday, entirely destroyed the
Republican chances of capturing the
senate. The returns now indicate that
the new senaV? will stand: Democrats,
51; Republicans, 45. This is a ne:
gain of five votes in the senate for
the Republicans, but they need a
r.in of nine to j;ive them control. In
nearly every s;;.te where the Rppuh
lieans r. It certain of senatorial gainr
they were sueeessflll, but :lne were
partly offset by Republican losses in
Rhode i.-iand nnd Utah, which had
been counted safe for fhe Republican
candidates. The doubtful states in
nearly eveiT instance elected Demo
The figures here giv-n are subject
to ehansie, b-it. according to present
indications, ihe Democrats are more
likely to radii than to lose by later
an.1 revised returns.

In the senate four present Demo
crats members, according to the lat
est indications, have been defeated

Three Republican senators I.ippitt

"The Line is Busy"
iGHT billion and a half telephone calls were answered last
year in the Bell system. It is not surprising that some tele
phones were found to be busy.
If it occurs frequently it it means that the party you wish to
reach needs more telephones or if on a party line, a direct line
would help matters.
It's a mistake to think that, to save herself work, the operator
teports the line busy when it is not; it's much more work for her
to notify you that the line is busy than it is tb give you the number.
Busy men have busy telephones. It is unavoidable that you
may sometimes have to knock more than once at their telephone

FRAZIER REA TRAPS
Gives Animal to Kagc for Zoo at
City Park-Gets 3 Wild
Following one of the must peculiar
squirrel races on record in the vicinity
of thc Cape, Frazier Rca, a driver foi
the Cape Brewery and Ice plant, Sun
day afternoon captured alive the iai
gest specimen of fox squirrel ever seen
in th Cape.
Mr. Rea yesterday turned the squir
rel over to Mayor Kagc to be given
a home at the Fairgrounds Park Zo.
At the same time that Kage took the
squirrel to the park, he had three wild
geese, presented to th zoo by Alien
Iv"niel, taken to the park I? u;;-'':
their home at the lake in the race
Mr. Rca captured thc squirrel after
a quarter of a mile chase in a torn
field, while he and some companions
were rabbit hunting west of town.
They found the squirrel a quarter of a
mile from a tree, und after throwing
down their guns, they started out to
run the animal down.
Rea proved the faster on his feet
and finally covered the squirrel by
throwiri his coat over it as the squir
rel bed toward a tree at the side of
the field. The animal then was taken
from under the coat and brought back
to the Cape for thc zoo.
