The general election last Tuesday resulted iu the greatest landslide for the republican nuket since the organ ization of the party Not only was evc-ry doubtful state cart led Oy Presi dent TViosevpli but the ranks of the solid ?-outh were broken and Missouri )o nel the. republican ranks. The democrats did not carry a single north ern stat'! and the south is no looser solid for them emtio Missouri has brok en avay. Twelve slates were carried by th". democrats aud thirty-two by the republicans, while four territories elected republican commissioner? to Congress. Roosevelt will receive a tjtal of 343 votes in the electoral col lege, as against 133 for Parker, while Roosevelt's plurality the nation over will exceed 1,500,000. The highest estimate made on the number of electoral votes which Roose velt would rpceive was 314. This esti mate was made by Chairman Cortelyou of the Republican national committee and was considered too high 'even by leading republicans, 293 being the gen eral estimate, The result proved, how ever, that all estimates were too low. Parker's vote in the electoral college will be smaller than that received bv Bryan either id ISflb or 1900. Before the election, New York, Con necticut, Maryland, West Virgin'!', Indiana, Nevada, and even Illinois, Wisconsin and Nebraska were claimed oy the democrats as doubtless states. But these all went for Roosevelt by good, safe in ij ities. New York went for Roosevelt by au overwhelming ma jority of 175,000: West Virginia, th£ home of the democratic candidate for vice-president, was carried by the re I publicans by 30,000 Indiana, the strongcold of Tom Taggart, the demo cratic national chairman, rolled up a I plurality of 75,000: while Nebraska can no longer be placed in the list of doubt fulless states in the face of its record of 75,000 plurality for Roosevelt. Another surprising feature of the election is the number of states which went for Roosevelt and yet elected democratic governors. Massachusetts gave the republican national ticket a plurality approximating 90,000 and elected the democratic candidate for governor by 30,000. Colorado. Minne sota and Missouri also elected demo cratic governors. In Minnesota the slate was carried ly the republican candidate for president, the democratic for governor and the republican candi date for lieutenant-governor while in Missouri, ^Joseph W. Folk, candidate for governor, 'Was the only democrat who succeeded in carrying the state. This independent spirit exhibited by the voters is one of the encouraging features of the election. It showsfthat the voters have learned how to scratch intelligently, and the day is probably past when a corrupt state ticket can be elected on the strength of the national ticket, or vice versa. The promise which Governor Cum mins made to Roosevelt and Fairbanks that the Hawkeye state would give them a bigger percentage of its vote than any other state in the union was more than made good by the record breaking plurality of 140,000. Not only that, but Iowa has again returned to her distinction of having a solid repub lican delegation in Congress. The doubtful Second district, now repre sented by a democrat, Judge Wade made the center of the fight in Iowa and was carried by the republican can didate, A. F. Dawson, by something over two hundred votes. The biggest plurality received by^any Congressional candinate in the state of Iowa was the one approximating 20,000 for Jjidge Conner of the Big Tenth district. In the general landslide, a number of strong democratic counties in this state went republican, even to the county tickets. The most notable of these, at least to our readers, is Crawford. Be fore election the democrats claimed the entire ticket by majorities ranging from 300 to 000, with the possible ex ception of county attorney. They con coeded the possibility of Klinker's election, but were confident that O'Con nor would be able to stem the tide. Early returns on the night of election indicated that the county had made a "Hop" and the democrats went to bed early, conceding the county to the re publicans with the exceptions of Faul and Collins, and possibly Melvim, whom they thought it impossible to beat. But the complete returns dashed even this last hope from the democrats and it was found that the 'republicans had carried the entire ticket. The ticket was led by Klinker with on.'over whelming majority of 534. He even outdistanced Roosevelt and Fairbanks I in the race in this county, who received a majority of bus, \,22. The democratic party has met with reverses the nation over. The repub licans have a majority of fifty in the national house of representatives and have increased their majority in the senate. The reorganization of the party failed to produce any good re sults aud «the democrats will no doubt return to the leadership of Bryan, or as Cleveland would put it "to unsafe ly and insanity."

R00SEVELTT0 HEAD HARVARD At The End of His Presidential Term He Will Assume Presidency of Harvard. The daily press gave out, the news on Saturday that after March 4, l£»U9, President Roosevelt would take up Educational work, assuming the presi aency of Harvard college. A gentle man. speaking with authority says: "The information came to me as confidential," he said, "and therefore my name must not be used in connec tion with the item, ltmc" however, be regarded as semi-oflicia. ''I was told that the presidency was offered Mr. Roosevelt some time ago, about two weeks prior to election, and that he^ageeed to accept after he ceased to be president of the United States. There was at that time some doubt as to whether he would accept another term. The interview given out by him election night is taken to mean that he will take up the duties of president of Harvard in 1909. "My information on this subject comes from a man very close to Presi dent Roosevelt, and there is no doubt whatever that he knows what he is talking about. He says that the presi dent is anxious to get into the educa tional world, and to hold a place that will not interfere with his athletic sport." AS THE DEMOCRATS SEE IT. The Dubuque Telegraph, dem., says that there was not a moment in the campaign when the mass of voters credited the democratic varty with opposition to the tr.ists. Judge Parker, during the last week of the campaign, succeeded in putting the Republicans on the defensive, where, with their past record, they belonged. Had he begun his cam paign work a little earlier the result might have been different.—Carroll Sentinel. The result of the election, in the opinion of the Dubuque Telegraph, restores Mr, Bryan to the leadership of the democratic party, and makes him the logical candidate for president in 1908. "He stands to-day." the Telegraph asserts, "head and shoulders above every other man in the nation as the uncorrupted, incor ruptible, uncompromising and un swerving champion of true democracy." The Dubuque Telegraph (dem) ac cepts the result of the election grace fully says, "While the element of luck has entered largely into Presi dent Roosevelt's success, the fact stands evident that genius for leader ship and indominltable energy and un swerving courage are the largest elements of his success." The democratic partywas'not iu shape to make a winning fight, It has been torn by internal dissensions for several years and the antagonisms thus en gendered could not be allayed in one campaign. A defeat and lapse of four years were necessary to bring the discordant elements togeth er. The result of the election is. per haps, the best thing that could have happened to the democratic party and the country. —Algona Courier. The democracy of the country is too intelligent and patriotic to dally with a man whose silence was imperturbable until after his nomination and then who opened his mouth to speak only to send his famous gold telegram, which proved to be his ultimate undoing. When the best principles and the brightest men of the democratic party are ruthlessly cast aside for such men and such platforms, democracy cannot hope to win. —Manson Democrat. AMONG THE EDI'iORS. "Send the news to Vardaman," says the Britt Tribune. The Webster City Freeman-Tribune says that the "big stick" did not, fright en the American people, because they love aud respect the man behind it. "Where all did well there was not so much comparative glory for Iowa," says the Burlington Hawkeye but then—just stop and look at Iowa! What state did better'?" The Sioux City Journal 'sums it up in a sentence thus: "There'are to be four years more of Roosevelt and re publican policies. There is to be no change, except for the better. The vote of yesterday was a vote of confi dence and a vote of reproof." Judge Parker is a success when it comes to communicating by telegraph. His last message was quite as popular and acceptable as his first. His first was to the St. Louis convention and his last to President Roosevelt. So long as the judge hangs to the wire he is all right. —The Capital. Judge Parker has been tried and found wanting. Nobody knew very much about him when he was nomin ated for president. But the fact that D. B. Hill was his sponsor aroused sus picion that he was not a high class man. Subsequent events have proven the correctness of these suspicions. His record leaves him among the hopeless unavailables of the future for he does not now have the asset of mystery which shrouded him before. A small bore politician is dead to the world, politically, when' his calibre is known, j—Glidden Graphic. c~I CHOOSING ELECTION BOARDS A Mattter That Needs Amending. The Selection of Board Should be a Business Proposition. There is too much time wasted by counting noards at election, and the choosing of election boards should be a business proposition. The fact that1 ^ome one Has done good work for the I party does not warrant his being chos en as election judge or clerk, if he is not competent. In raauy eases men] who are unused to clerical work, tnen who are too illiterate to be of use are appointed because they need the mon ey, or desire distinction. In other cases men who have no control over their appetites and are in no 'condition whatever, to act in any capacity, are appointed. Busy men await with im patience to learn the rerults. Three accountants can do the work required in a third of the time it generally takeB the ordinary board. The appointment of boards of election should be a busi ness proposition pure and simple. Let us have clerks and judges who are capable and will attend to business. BIG SOCIALIST VOTEflNJOWA Total of 11,239 in 1904- as Against 2,305inl903. Labor Trouble Said to be Cause of Increased Vote. Returns from the recent election show that the socialist party in Iowa are making gains each year. In 1903 the vote in Iowa was 2,305 and in 39C4 11.236. The party says there are two causes, the growing power of what they term capitalism and the extensive work done by individual members. They say, that the party leaders will never stand for fusion with the} democratic party. EX GOV. SHERMAN IS DEAD. Passes Away at His Home in Vinton, Iowa, on Friday Night. Iowa's Early Governor. Ex-Gov. Sherman, of Vivton, Iowa died at his nome on Friday night last, at the age of 68 years. He was the eleventh governor of Iowa, a war veteran and a man very highly respect ed by all who knew him. He located in Iowa in 1855 and has resided almost contiuously in Benton County. Of Governor Sherman's services to he state a distinguished citizen of Iowa writes: ,'As governor his messages show intimate acquaintance with the affairs of state, his recommendation always being on the side of economy and good government, and his every act giving evidence of devotion to the welfare if the public and of his intense desire for the integrity of public officials and the upbuilding of the highest interest of the commonwealth."
