Dissatisfied with the vote as re ported in Des Moines, Scott, Clinton, Johnson, Muscatine and Lee counties, the* Connolly fwces yesterday an nounced that an official canvass of the ballots will be demanded in those districts, says the Des Moines Regis ter and Leader. They hint at irreg ularities in connection with the re cording of the vote. The democratic state central com mittee depended upon piling up big pluralities for the democratic candi dates in the river counties. According to the returns, those districts which are normally democratic have gone republican or the democratic majority has been cut practically to pothlng. John DeMar, managing the Connol ly interests, yesterday issued the fol lowing statement with regard to the situation: "While we ate supremely confident that Mr. Connolly has won, we have decided to demand an official canvass of the votes in Des Moines, Scott, Clinton, Johnson, Muscatine and Lee counties because everything lndl- SEVERE RHEUMATIC PAINS DISAPPEAR Rheumatism depends on an acid in the blood, which affects the muscles and joints, producing in flammation, stiffness and pain.

Ladd a close fourth. Twenty-five counties—about one-fourth of the^stato, exclusive of Polk—give:. Weaver 17,759 Salinger 16,871 Thomas .. 16,167 Ladd 15,329 Withrow 16,288 Prouty 13,814 It may be seen that Salinger, Thomas and Ladd are little more than 500 votes apart, and the remain der of the state to be heard from may eliminate any one of them. The sur prise, however, is in Thomas' strong showing, and the weakness of Judge Prouty. Jiv The above totals include Salinger's vote in Carroll, his home county, which gave him 2,263 to Ladd's 644 and Thomas' 1,089. This places Sal inger at an advantage that may easily be wiped out hy the later returns. rr AMUSEMENTS. Trey of Hearts.

D., Nov. 5.—Two farmers are missing, Nal Smith is in a Mandan hospital and 500 square miles in Morton and Sioux counties are a waste today following a prairie fire which probably caused $200,000 loss. The twenty-one fires that were raging separately in the two counties are thought today to be under control. Thin folks Who Would Be Fat Increase in Weight Ten Pounds or More. A Physician's Advice. "I'd certainly give most anything to be able to fat up a few pounds and stay that way," declares every exces sively thin man or woman. Such a result Is not impossible, despite past failures. Thin people are victims of mal-nutrition, a condition which pre vents the fatty elements of food from being taken up by the blood ss they are when the powers of nutrition are normal. Instead of getting into the blood, all the -fat and flesh producing elements stay in the Intestines until they pass from the body as waste. To correct this condition and to produce a healthy riarmal, amount of fat the nutritive processes must be artificially supplied with the power which nature has denied them. This can best be accomplished by eating a Sargoi tablet with every meal. Sargol Is a scientific combination of six of the best strength-giving, fat-producing elements known to the medical pro fession. Taken with meals, it mixes with the food and turns the sugars and starches Into rich, ripe nourishment for the tissues and blood and its rSpid effect is remarkable. Reported gains of from ten to twenty-five pounds in a single month are by no means in frequent. Yet its action is perfectly natural and absolutely harmless. Sar gol is sold by Wilkinson ft Co., and other good druggists everywhere and every package contains a guarantee of weight lncreap,-? or money back. Caution:—While Sargol has pro duced-remarkable results in the treat ment of nervous indigestion and gen eral stomach disorders. It should not, owing to its remarkable flesh produc ing effect, be used by those who are not willing to increase their weight ten tKimd« or more. THE DAILY GATE CITY SMS WOULD PAY FOR MCE w. 0 *4. B. Martin Who Represented Keo kuk at Hearing at Washington, Figurea State Would be Hit Heavy. 7 /V w*% vplfr 1 'T JP.ECT RAISE DOESN ,-^vw Secretary Upper River Cities Traffic Association Thinks Request Will Be Denied by the Commission. •jlfi Keokuk was represented at the, hearing at Washington recently in which the railroads asked for a five, per cent Increase in freight rates. W. B. Martin of Dubuque, the secretary of the upper river cities traffic assocla-l tion, represented the association and' incidentally Keokuk, which is a mem Irer. Mr. Martin returned to Iowa on Monday. Mr. Martin said this was a test case and if the eastern roads won, then the western roads would make a similar demand for a raise in rates. The first attempt to secure a raise was made in 1910, according to Mr. Martin, and the Becond one in IMS. "The second effort was made in 1913 and confined to the eastern ter ritory as the business interests of ^hat portion of the country would be least effected by an advance In freight rates. Only five per cent was asked to reduce the opposition to a mlniumm. They thought the fact that on an advance In the charges of the eastern railroads, the west would bear the greater part of the burden would be overlooked. The east is In the market for the farm products of the west, and the price the farmer re ceives Is that of the eastern market less the cost of reaching it, conse quently an advance in that cost means a decrease in the price the farmer receives. The west Is also a market for the products of the east ern manufacturers on which the west would pay the freight. It is estimat ed that the state of Iowa would pay at least J5,000,000.00 bf the' $50,000, 000.00 the eastern roads would secure from a five per cent advance." Mr. Martin believes the roads are prosperous despite their claims. He does not believe they will secure the advance asked for until there is a change in administrative policies. $ GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS AGAIN With Election Out of the Way, Admin istration Takes Up Neglected Work. [United Press Leased Wire Service.]) WASHINGTON, No-v. 5.—With elec tions out of the way, administration officials today began to give renewed attention to serious problems—the Mexican situation and Colorado strike.

What his attitude toward presence of federal troops In the strike district will be, officials here do not know. While the white house denies the pres ident is contemplating closing down or taking over the Colorado mines, he nevertheless has asked the depart ment of justice what his powers in the circumstances are. Attorney Gen eral Gregory, it was indicated today, has not yet rendered his opinion, but has the Instructions under considera tion. Elections admittedly complicat ed the Colorado situation as they did the Mexican problem,' so administra tion observers today were freely pre dicting that decisive steps in both sit uations would soon be taken.

Money to buy tobacco for soldiers in the English army is being solicited in this city by Dr. Richard M. Town send, 1101 High street, who started his campaign this morning by first calling at the office of the mayor. This plan of supplying the British ers at the front with tobacco was ad vanced by the -London Times which has sent subscription blanks to cities in all parts of this country. The mon ey thus obtained will be sent back to London where the tobacco will be pur chased. Dr. Townsend said that American tobacco will be purchased and that no import or export duty will have to be paid on It. Subscriptions to buy cigarettes for French soldiers were collected here recently. SIX LIVES LOST IN HOTEL FIRE Lodging House Was Packed With Sleeping Men When Flames Broke Out.
