MAINE VICTORY WILL GIVE HOUSE TO REPUBLICANS Leaders at Washington Fore see Return of Old Party to Power as War Measure Charles R. Michael, writing from Washington to the Philadelphia Press on the Maine election, says. "Republican leaders expressed great gratification over the increas ed Republican vote in Maine, the ap parent decline in Democratic strength and predicted that a sim ilar condition would result in the November Congressional election, as suring the election of a Republican House. "With the election in Maine before him as a criterion of sentiment in New England, Senator i.odge. Re publican leader of the Senate, said that New Hampshire would elect two Democratic senators in November, a Republican gain of one. Chairman l'css Predicts Victory "Representative Simon Fess, chair man of the Republican Congressional committee, commenting upon the Maine election to-day, said: " The Maine election shows a de cided undercurrent towards the Re publicans. The country approved their attitude and will rely upon them for wise conduct of the coun try's welfare. " 'The vote in Maine confirms mv previous statement that the people of the country will certainly look to the Republican party for leadership ir. the responsible business of vigor ous prosecution of the war. and wise solution of the problems which the country must inherit from the war " "This country has not forgotten, nor will it forget the decisive char- TEN DAT #|Jf| SPECIAL W&S EYE EXAMINATION, by our latest methods.

"Impressive " says Penrose Senator Penrose, who conferred; with Senator Ledge and Representa-j tive Fess about political conditions, j said: " 'I share the opinion of Repubtt-! cans with whom I have talked that, the result in Maine has impressive significance.
