Senator Sproul's election to the Gov

"drys." '
He was pledged to the ratification of
the national prohibition nmendnient, nnd
his opponent, Munlelp.il Judge Ihigene
C. Ronnlwell, the Dcmocratlo nominee,

Issue.
The liquor Interests delivered nn on
slaught on Senator Sproul In th clos
ing dnys of the campaign, Tim big vote
which they threatened to deliver Jo
the "wet" candidate proved negative.
It Is believed the ituuor Interests con
fined their efforts largely In behalf of
the candidates for (be State Sennto nnd
House. The Legislature has full say on
the ratification or rejection of the na
tional prohibition nmendmeiit, no action
by the Governor being required.
While tho "wets" on the fnce of re
turns received so fnr from over the
State claim a majority In thp Senate, the
vole In the House between-the "wets"
and "drys" is conceded to bo close.

DEMOCItATIC FOES WEAK
Puts Congress
in Power Again
t'linllinieil from Puce One
time of reconstruction, cspi dally with
Congress Republican nnd determined to
reassert Its ttuthorlf; ns n co-ordinate
branch of thu Government.
Straggles To ('nine
For the election of n Republican 'Con
gress will imrely moan n struggle wltli
tho I'resldent for a icturn to Consti
tutional methods..
This Government Is likely no longer
to consist of nn executive nnd a legis
lature which merely"" records ,lts will.
The process of subordinating Congress
to tho President has been ROlng on
for a long time and has reached Its
climax.
Nntuialiy enough during the war
Congress has been merely an appropri
ating budy and n legislative perfecting
bodv. Laws have originated In the
executive departments and betn scut to
Congress to be pasred substantially ns
drawn. Congress occupied Itself with Im
proving phraseology, that was nil.
Restores Constitution
It Is difficult to say exnetly what was
In the peoplels mind In rejecting Mr. Wil
son's plea for a Democratic Congress,
but one th'ng that must have been there
was a determination to restore the Gov
ernment to Its constitutional form. What
tho country was threatened with was
the complete subordination of the legis
lative to the executive even In peace
time. This subordination would have
ben ncconipllrhed under color of the
necessities of reconstruction espfiially
tho necessity of co-operating with for
eign powers In the lengue of nations for
the reconstruction of Kurope, nnd once
the subordination of Congress had been
completely effected In peace times. It
would have been dllllculf to restore the
legislative branch to Its constitutional
ity. The tendency In this country ap
peared to be exactly the opposite of the
tendency abroad.
While the Ru'chstag and other assem
blies were gaining power, Congress was
threatened with the complete loss of Its
power: wWlc the executive was weaken
ing abroad, the executive wns growing
stronger here. The vote of yesterday
checks this development.
This one b'gnlflennce of tho election on
the positive side, and there would appear
to be a rejection by the country of radi
calism. Voices .Vote of Caution
Theie Is n note of extreme caution In
yesterdnj's vote. It is the nation's first
reaction to Mr. Wilson's policy toward
organized labor and toward Industry.
When thu flood of Ideas let loose abroad
liv pence has spread over the world, the
situation may change one way or the
other, but Just non this nation is con
servative. It has not followed Mr. Wil
son ; It has reacted from hint.
The election caino nt "an unfortunate
time for the I'resldent, the, country was.
thrown liuar mental confusion by the
sudden njipenrance of peace' as' a proba
bility. Jt could not iUlckly reverse its
war psj chology.
The effect of yesterday's verdict will
probably be to lsn the likelihood of
the President's being u candidate to
succeed himself.
Washington has for some time no-
Colt defeated Congressman I cepted the view that tho President would

It is probable the Republicans will

Judge Ronnlwell carried only one ward
in the city, the Sixth, where his tight
was aided by nn aggressive contest over
a vacancy In Select Council.
The return of the Sixth to the Demo

Its voters icglstered as Republicans at
the spring primary, was one of the sur
prises of the election.

When It beenme anpa'-ent tbnt the
ward yns to remain In the Democrntlc
column, despite the fact tbnt the Re
mtbllenn enrollment hnil been the larger.
the "old-timers of the ward organized
n celebration With n blaring band nnd
an abundance of red fire, they led n
procession to the home of the late for
mer Select Councilman Thomas J Rviin,
who wns leader of the ward fnr many
years. ,
The band crashed mil a stirring ser
enade In honor of the memory of the
old leader and yells and cheers split the
air. Suddenly the door opened and Mrs.
Ryan appeared on the steps.
"I know what this means," she said
"In the name of the Major 1 thank you
for keeping the wnrd true to his prin
ciples nnd Ihe honor you have done
him by paving tribute )o his memory In
the hour of your victory."
Kpeclnl eoutuilmnnlc elections were

city treasurer, was elected to Select
Council from the Thirtieth Ward bv a
vote of 3K6G, and Jacob A S.ilkln, from
the Fourth Ward, by a vote of 1 f83
There was no opposition In cither case.

attempting to dodge the draft.
In the Twenty-first Ward, there was
a contest over lllllng u vacant teat In

to one. Thomas S. T. Macklccr, who
was nominated nn the Fair Play ticket
as well ns the Republican, received 3272
votes against 1113 for George S. Moyer,
the Democratic nominee.
The contest In the Sith Ward was
expected to be much more blttir than
proved to be the case. The Demociats
asserted that the Vnre fences were at
K mining to "steal" tho wnrd nnd that
conditions were the same as prevailed
In tin- Fifth Wnrd preceding the mur
der of Polk email llpplcy by a gunman
from New Voik. They point) d to the
fact that Littleton had managed to
win the nomination on Judge llonni
well's "Fair Play" ticket ns well as the
Republican.
Overseers of the election wer ap
pointed by the court at the reipieit of
Jamea M. Dnhan, counsel for the Demo
cratic city Committee, who also
Journeyed to Washington and iires.'titeil
bis ense to the Federal authorities with
tho result that Depnttnient of Justice
ngents were Instructed to keep wnlch on
tho election.
In addition. Mayor Smith sent police
Captains He.irn nnd Tempest to guard
against disorder. This iiction wns taken
because the Democrats bail asked the
transfer of Lieutenant Iiuokfc tiler from
command of the Fouitli District, which
covers Ihe ward.

Says the Fuel Administrator
If every car driven in America were a FRANKLIN we
would save in one year 400,000,000 gallons of gas.
The Franklin travels 20 to 25 miles on a single
gallon.
Then, too, if every car driven in America were a
FRANKLIN the Automobile owners of America
would save in one year $192,000,000 in tires. The
Franklin travels 10,000 instead of 5000 miles on a
set of tires.
Although the entire Franklin factory has been put at the dis
posal of the Government for the making of war materials,
the Sweeten Automobile Company, anticipating this meas
ure, purchased every available Franklin and now has cars
(particularly of the enclosed winter types) on hand for im
mediate delivery.
When this stock is depleted there will be no more Franklins
available, as the factory cannot resume production until
months after peace is declared.
