Large Number of People Called on , the Successful Candidates in Last Week's Election Wednesday Evening- Last Wednesday night the suc cessful candidates in the election of last week were at home. They had to be. So many , people came to see them there was no left to go and see had they wanted to get away. The receptions began at the home of C. A. Calderwood, town representative. The band was there to furnish music and a large crowd gathered in front of the house. Colored lights had been arranged in Mr. Calderwood's yard and some of the neighbors also dcorated their places with lights. Mr. Calderwood appeared on the steps and made a short address thanking the people for the honor they had shown him and pledging good service for his town and state at Montpelier. He then invited the people to come in and shake hands. He and Mrs. Calderwood received a thousand or more visitors and they passed through the house where sev .eral ladies served punch on th ver anda and the gentlemen received cigars. As soon as they got through the line the people began to move on to the residence of W. H. Worthen, the sheriff elect. He and Mrs. Wor then were ready to give the glad hand to their callers, and had sev eral friends ready to serve them with punch and cigars. Mr. Worthen also addressed the crowd expressing his gratitude to the voters and wel coming them to their home. On went the crowd up the hill to Lieutenant Governor . elect" Slack's home on Summer street. Mr. Slack had on his best clothes, his right arm well limbered up to give a cordial handshake, and his lights trimmed and colored. The band followed the people up from Mr. Worthen's and played several selections.- Mr. Slack also briefly expressed his happy sen timents and with Mrs. Slack received the visitors who were still thirsty for punch and ready to smoke. From Mr. Slack's several , friends went up to the home of Senator David Porter. The senator did not make any speech but was ready to visit and -entertain his callers in a manner that added much to the pleasure of the evening's tour. SHEFFIELD. H. P.

Plaisted of Augusta was elected the first democratic governor of Maine ever elected by the people, in the state election Tues day, by a plurality of 8,500 over Bert M. Fernald of Poland, the re publican candidate who was seeking a second term. The vote for governor, with 48 small districts missing, was: Plaisted, democrat ........ 72,708 Fernald, republican 63,715 In the second district, formerly represented by the late Nelson M. Dingley, father of the Dingley law, Daniel J. Mcpillicuddy was elected congressman by 3,000 over John P. Swasey, the present incumbent, and Congressman Edwin C. Burleigh, who has represented the third - district since 1892,' was defeated by Samuel W. Gould, another democrat, by a small margin. The result in the first and fourth districts was much in doubt Tuesday night, although the in dications were that Asher C. Hinds, republican, had won over William M. Pennell, democrat, in the former and that Congressman Frank E. Guernsey, republican, had been de feated in the latter by George M. Hanson, democrat, by a small mar gin. The first district seat was formerly occupied by Speaker Thomas B. Reed, while the late Charles Boutelle was for many years the fourth dis trict's representative. There will be at least 16 democrat ic senators out of 31 and 45 democratic representatives out . of 151 in the next legislature, with indi cations that the democratic party will have the choosing of a successor to United States Senator Eugene ,Hale next winter. The democrats also carried a ma jority of the counties, some of the old republican sheriffs, including John BaBllou, for 30 years sheriff of Sagadahoc county, went down before the democratic landslide. The political page had to be turned back .to 1880 for even a reversal of republican success, and there it was found that Colonel Plaisted's father, Harris M. Plaisted, was made govern or on a fusion ticket by a narrow margin of 169 votes. All the other Maine governors since 1855 have been republican. Characters in the Mock Court Trial.
