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

dcorated their places with lights.
Mr. Calderwood appeared on the

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

played several selections.- Mr. Slack

Col. F. W; Plaisted Elected Governor
-Democrats May Elect Succes
sor to Sen. Hale.
Col. F. W. 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.
