St. Paul, Nov. 4.—Witti the elec
tion of J. A. O. Preus for governor
assured by an overwhelming plural
ity over his three opponents, missing
precincts virtually discontinued re
porting returns as it was evident the
complete results from the 3,220 pre
cincts in the state would not ma
terially change the standing.
When 2,507 precincts had report
ed on governor the count today was
Preus, republican, 355,228 Hodg
son, democrat, 69,400 Shipstead, in
•dependent, Nonpartisan, 236,971
Sampson, socialist, 3,199.

220 in the state give Hilton 344,

The Nonpartisan League lost out
In the states of Montana and Color
ado. They ran candidates as demo
crats in those states. The League
candidate for governor of Montana
was an extreme radical, and his de
feat is largely due to the work of
Senator Meyers, democrat, who
stumped the state against the
League democratic candidate, as not
being a fit and responsible man for
thtf puslLltin.
In Wisconsin John J. Blaine, a
republican, was elected as the candi
date of the LaFollette faction. The
League socialists claim him as theh
Senator Lenroot, republican, was
re-elected over the LaFoIlett sandi
date in Wisconsin.
A report Is current that grounds
exist for an election contest in th«
First district of the fourth ward in
the city, on account of the withdraw
al and throwing away by election ef
fic.c.r®. of two ballot-3. The tacts in
tVc- ii oident are th-.t. afti-r the poll*
had closed, and while the ballots
were being counted, it was found
than there was one more woman's
ballot voted and one more men's bal
lot voted than there were names on
the registration lists. The judges in
this precinct were A. M. Halstead and
Fr»d Wolfer, and the inspector of
the election T. .1. Birmingham.
The law requires election officers

tion, !o open the boxes, and to

nu-n was wlthrt ii, and throw i u
side, by the election officers as the
law requires. States Attorney Carr,
had his attention called to the matter
and made an enquiry into the same,
and ascertained the facts.
The report is that the ballots were
torn up by the election officers
and other ballQt marked and put in
their place. This is not the fact as
no ballots were marked at all, and
the law strictly complied with by
those in charge of the canvass of the
vote. It was found afterwards that
both of the ballots withdrawn were
O'Connor ballots.
The Valley City Times-Record lost
out as the official paper, the League
organ, The Peoples Opinion, being
elected. The Sanborn Enterprise was
designated as the official paper be
fore the election.

posse formed early today to'search
for two "mashers" who shot and
wounded Miss Grace Phillips, 17
years old a choir girl last night.
Miss Phillips in company with two
other girls of the Emanuel Baptist
church choir was returning homo
from practice humming hvmns when
two young men accosted th?n:.
"How'd you like o be my little

The Annual meeting and Mid
Winter convention of the Laymen's
Holiness Association, which has its
headquarters here in Jamestown, in
the old C. E. McElroy house, in the
south part of the city, will be held
here in Jamestown beginning the
31st of December with a "Watch
Night" meeting, and continuing on
for several days.
Last year the Annual Meeting of
this evangelistic organization, wa3
held in Bismarck, and over one hun
dred delegates attended from out
side the city. It is expected that at
least that number will be in attend
ance this year. The day sessions of
the meeting will be held in the from
parlor of the headquarters building,
and the evening session which will
be strictly evangelistic will be held
in the Evangelical church which has
been secured for that time.
One of the features of this gath
ering will be the revival campaign
that will be held in connection with
it. Dr. John W. Goodwin, one of
the leading evangelists of the na
tion, and who holds a high position
with the Nazarene church, will be
the preacher each evening. The
"Aeolian Quartet" a group of sing
ers of unusual interest and ability,
will lead the singing. The Annual
Meeting will continue five days, but
the campaign in connection, will be
held for two weeks after the Annual
Meeting is over. It will continue
till the 23rd of January.
Washington, Nov. 5.—"The vic
tory of Senator Harding and the
banishment of Wilsonism from the
nation's councils is another manifes
tation of the inherent good sense of
the American people and a renewed
proof of the stability of the govern
ment under which they live," de
clares the Republican Publicity As
sociation in a statement issued to
day which says:
"Wage earners and all other vot
ers are alive to the fact that the
rapid return of Europe to normal
production once more means the
flooding of our markets with the
products of cheap foreign labor and
consequent disruption of the home
market unless steps are taken to
prevent it through the medium of a
protective tariff.. By the election of
Senator Harding that has been
made certain, and the welfare of the
American workingman protected for
the future.
"With Senator Harding in the
White IHouse Congress will return
once more to its constitutional func
tions. Legislation by executive die
tation will cease, and laws that are
passed and money that is appropriat
ed will represent the combined wis
dom of over 500 representatives of
the people rather than that of a
single mind. The country is about
to be restored again under a govern
ment for the people instead of for a
party or individual."
Ottawa, Ont., Nov.' 4.—Editorial
comment in the press of Canada to
day reflects the view that the Repub
lican election landslide in the Unit
ed States is a forerunner to a decid
ed change in tariff relations between
the two countries.
In well informed quarters here
the "probability" was discussed that
the new congress at Washington
would nullify the reciprocal clauses
of the Underwood tariff law insofar
as they relate to foodstuffs, thus
"closing the way to free wheat,
wheat products and potatoes both
ways across the border."
Valley City, Nov. 4:—There were
183 voters in Valley City who did not

Representatives— Harding
Electoral Vote 404.
Frccport, 111., Nov. 5.—Vice-pres
ident Tlios. R. Marshall would make
no comment here today on thd suj*
gestion of William Jennings Itryaji
that President Wilson resign im
"I am thru talking politics for a
while at least," he said.
New York, Nov. 5.—With the size
of President Elect Harding's elector
al vote virtually settled at 404 out
a possible 531 and the complexion
of the new senate set down as 51'
republicans and 37 democrats, re
publican leaders today awaited 'be
lated returns on eight contests in
six states to fix the exact size of the
republican house majority.
Exclusive of the sight undeter
mined seats in the lower house the
republicans had 286 members to 137
democrats, and 4 of other designa
tions, a plurality of 149—the great
est ever held by any party in the
house. The nearest approach to it
was in the 52nd congress when the
democrats had a lead of 148.
Republicans appeared to be assur
ed of more than an even break in
the eight outstanding seats, which
would give them a record party mar
gin in the house. The seats still in
doubt were the 4th Maryland, 8th
Minnesota, 5th Missouri, 15th, 21st
and 23rd, New York, 2nd North Da
kota, and 5th West Virginia.
A further possible democratic up
set appeared possible in the 4 th
Tennessee district where W. F.
Clouse, republican, was reported to
have forged slightly ahead of Cor
dell Hull, earlier reported elected.
Montana's four electoral votes fell
definitely into the Harding column
when returns from 1227 precincts
out of the total 1480 gave the repub
lican candidate a lead of 44,530.
With North Dakota's five electoral
votes counted last night, when dem
ocratic leaders admitted they had
given up hopes of carrying the state,
the addition of Montana brot Hard
ing total to the 404 mark.
Yesterday's count in Oklahoma
assured the nation's new women vot
ers one representative in the lower
house, Miss Alice Robertson of Mis
kogee, a farmer and restaurant own
er. Miss Robertson was an anti-suf
fragist prior to the adoption of the
19th amendment and made the con
gressional race "to see if the men
meant it" when they "thrust the
vote on us."-
Chicago, Nov. 5—Seizor Hard
ing's plurality for president with 308

Chicago, Nov. 4—-William Jen
nings Bryan in Chicago todayr-gave
out a statement suggesting that
President Wilson should resign at
"Now that the American people
have decisively declared against the
League of Nations as written by the
president," said Mr. Bryan, it would
seem desirable to carry out the ver
dict Immediately. This can be easi
ly done.
"The president should resign at
once and turn over his office to Mr.
Marshall, -on the condition that on
the convening of congress in Dec.
Mr. Marshall appoint Senator Hard

"The law then would make Mr.
Harding president, and with the Re
