Sun Rises Tomorrow, 6:44; Seta, 5:33 OCALA, FLORIDA, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 8, 1922 VOLUME TWENTY-EIGHT. NO. 267 DECIDED GAINS FOR THE Republican Majority in the House Has Been Greatly Reduced; In the Senate the Democratic Strength Will be Somewhat Increased DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS OF COURSE SWEPT THE STATE; CAWTHON EVIDENTLY ELECTED; FATE OF THE AMENDMENTS ARE IN DOUBT Jacksonvile, Nov. 8. (Associated j Press). A democratic recovery, but ! not its full extent, was revealed in last night's tabulations of far from complete returns of Tuesday's gen eral election. On the face of these returns the democrats had definitely gained twenty-eight members in the House of Representatives and lost none. On the Senate side, Calder concedes his defeat by Copeland in New York, Edwards apparently has defeated Frelinghuysen in New Jersey, Ralston had a comfortable lead over Bever idge in Indiana and in North Dakota, O'Connor was running ahead of Fra ser, a possible democratic gain of four senators. The Ohio senatorial race is close, but Fess apparently has defeated Pomerene, while in Nebras ka. Hitchcock concedes his defeat to Howell, a democratic loss of two. Some of the high lights as revealed last night were: Smith's unprecedented plurality over Miller in the New York guberna torial race. Senator Lodge's close shave in Massachusetts. He was only slightly ahead of Gaston, democrat. Volstead was running behind Kvale in Minnesota. Carmi Thompson, President Hard ing's candidate for governor of Ohio, apparently has been defeated. The Delaware senatorial race waa so close as to make its outcome con- jecturai. A democratic landslide in Tennessee headed by Peale's defeat of Taylor. Alice Robertson defeated, as were many other women in various states. Mrs. Winifred M. Huck elected to House from Illinois at large. In Florida the returns came in very slowly. The school tax, extra judges and officers' salary amendments are apparently issured of ratification on the face of last night's returns. Returns from only one-fifth of the state's precincts show merely close ness in the reapportionment fight with the trend slightly favoring rati fication. Of approximately 10,000 scattered votes from forty-six coun ties, the amendment was leading by 500. Riley showed little strength in last night's returns and Cawthon's elec tion is apparently assured. .ILLINOIS VOTED A BONUS Chicago, Nov. 8.

The democrats increased their congressional representation from four to eight, reducing their oppo nents from five to two. Two republi can candidates were without opposU tion. The ninth congressional district of Virginia, republican for twenty two years, returned a democratic con gressman. CAWTHON AND THREE AMEND MENTS CARRY Jacksonville, Nov. 8.

ALL INTERESTED SHOULD ATTEND The Big Meeting of Truck Growers To Be Held in Ocala Nov. 16 A big meeting of the fmxx growers will be held in Ocala 7ext Thursday afternoon, Nov. 16th, s"i 2:30 o'clock, in the court house. Addresses on co operative marketing and nation-wide distribution of products will be made by two of the forerwost advocates of the co-operative movement Mr. J. S. Edwards, of California, and Mr. A. R. Rule, of New York, president and gen eral manager, respectively, of the Federated Fruit and Vegetable Grow ers, Inc. On January 1st the federat ed newly organized grower con trolled, non-stock, non-profit, nation wide distributing agency will become the marketing medium of the Amerl-. can Farm Bureau Federation. Mr. Edwards is a director of the Califor nia Fruit Growers Exchange and president of the Gold Buckle Orange Association of Redlands, Cal., and Mr. Rule was former vice president and general manager of the North Ameri can Fruit Exchange. Every truck grower in Marion coun ty and especially the tomato and wa termelon growers, are urged to hear these addresses. The meeting will not be an organizing meeting but will be held simply to get before the growers the facts concerning the great co operative movement which is now sweeping through the United States. The growers of adjoining counties will be invited to attend. Believing that the bankers and bus iness men in particular are vitally in terested in the co-operative move ment, Mr. Edwards and Mr. Rule will address a meeting of the bankers, business men and women, county agents, commercial secretaries and growers at a supper Thursday night at 7:30. Invitations are being sent out to the bankers, county agents and commercial secretaries of the adjoin ing counties to be the guests of the Marion County Chamber of Commerce at the supper. Otherwise everyone attending will be asked to pay for his own supper. Tickets will be sold at one dollar per plate and can be obtain ed from the Chamber of Commerce, Mr. K. C. Moore or from a committee to be named for handling them. Mr. Edwards and Mr. Rule are men of national reputation. They will ad dress growers in only two places in Florida. It is therefore, a very un usual opportunity for the growers in this part of Florida to become posted on co-operative marketing. CABINET CONSIDERS THE NEAR EAST CRISIS London, Nov. 8.

DEMOCRATS UP THE MEFFERT IS FAR AHEAD OF Mc LEOD First Three Amendments Evidently Carried; Reapportionment Is In Doubt In giving these returns by pre-1 cincts, the Ocala precinct will have to serve as an index, as we have not the time to write the others out so fully. For the Ocala precinct we print each candidate's name and the office he is running for, also his politics unless he is a democrat. With the exception of Lawson, republican candidate for United States senator, and E. C. Mc Leod, candidate for county commis sioner, all the candidates are demo crats. Cawthon and Riley are demo crats, but ran against each other on petition. With the precincts follow ing Ocala, we can give only the name and the vote, but our people will have no trouble in understanding this ar rangement.
