The bank clearings in Little Rock yesterday amounted to $677,859. 61, which is larger than itever nas been before in a single day. The bankers, nine out of ten of which voted for Taft, say all days will be good for them now with the un certainty over. FROM iTHE CAPITAL CITY Business was good (or the tele graph companies yesterday, if nothing else but congratulatory messages to Taft had been handled. Nearly every Republican in this section sent one of the messages, Capt. F. W. Tucker, chairman of the Republican executive commit tee setting the example early in the day. Capt. Tucker is a much pleased man with the result, es pecially with the showing made by his party in Arkansas. He pre dicts that the state will go Repub lican in the years to come, and says it will be a big day for the state when it does. The election out of the way, the pushing and shoving up to the pie counter has already commenced. Who will get the Federal appoint ments in this district is getting to be a topic for free discussion, and the next meeting of the Republi can executive committee will prob ably have many recommendations to pass upon, to see who will be invited to draw up their chairs and eat. The position of register of the land office is at present the on ly vacancy. Harry H. Myers re cently resigned from this position ing order to make the race for con grass in the Second district, and all indications point to his reap pointment when the committee meets. This will be quite a dis appointment, however, to the doz en or more applicants for the po sition. However, there will prob ably be a vacancy there after March 4, and it is for this date that the executive committee must make recommendations to Presi dent-Elect Taft. According to persistent rumor, Harry H. Myers, for his fidelity to the cause, by per mitting himself for years to be a regular sacrifice in either the gu bernatorial or congressional race, will be handed the district attor neyship. Col. W. G. Whipple, an old wheel horse of the party, may be given the postmastership, though some have intimated that H. I„. Remmel, now United States Marshall of this district, will be the successful candidate for that place. That Capt. F. W. Tucker can have his present portfolio, col lector of internal revenue, without opposition, all interested concede. The same applies to Col. H. L. Remmel in the marshalship, but if he desires to become postmaster, it is also conceeded that he can have that position, so strong is his standing with the political powers of the nation. All hope of a fall junket by the State Press Association has been abandoned for the present, accord ing to Secretary Karl Hodges. There will be a business meeting of the association in January, how eyer, and the trip over the state may follow this meeting, but the chances are that the editors will not be passed about from town to town over the state until spring. Political headquarters in Little Rock next year will be switched back to the Capital Hotel, for the contractors have promised the man agement to have the New Capital ready for occupancy by the first day of January. A number of those seeking honors in the Senate and House, have taken up with the management the proposition of opening their headquarters in the New Capital, and they have been promised the rooms. This will necessitate the building's being ready for occupancy by the second week in January at the very latest. Contractor Stewart is now working the largest force of plasterers, bricklayers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, tinners, painters and metal workers ever assembled on one building in Little Rock in or der to complete the rebuilding of the hostelry in the given time. The board of ^trustees of the University of Arkansas is in ses sion today and one of the propo sitions before it is the resignation of Col. W. G. Vincenhellar as, the director of experimental stations in the state. This resignation will be accepted and a successor pos sibly elected.

Who will be the successor to Col. Vincenhellar is a mystery, though Col. R. W. McFarlane of Sebas tian county is one of the candi dates. Gov.-Elect George W. Dona ghey was in the city yesterday and spoke enthusiastically of the race made by Bryan, and gave the Ne braska leader the credit for the en tire fight, saying no one else would have been able to do so well. He also commended the Arkansas Railroad Commission for the stand it has taken on the 3-cent passen ger rate and freight tariff, in or dering penalty suits for the rail roads violating the commissioners’ orders.

Bailey is ac cusing former Clerk Hartje of con ducting a bargain sale of marriage licenses just previous to retiring from the office.
