the election results
Tho political map makers may now get busy It used to be
white for Republican states and black tor Democratic But now it
is to be reversed since the great minority are Republican The
chief states to change their colors arejNew York Massachusetts
C6nnecticnlt Now Jersey West Va Wyoming Illinois Maine be
coming white PC Democratic while three slates have changed to
block or Republican Nevada Nebraska and Tennessee s
The present Congress the Olst has 301 members of which 217
bare Republicans and 174 are Democrats The next Congress the
02d the one just elected will have the same number of members
but 177 are Republicans 213 Democrats and 1 a Socialistalmost
an figuresFor
For the 02d Congress 33 new senators are to be elected but
from the make up of the present Legislature it is conceded that 17
of them will bo Republicans This will leave a working majority of
10 for the Republicans This means that no legislation strictly
Democratic or Republican will be enacted during the last two years
of Mr Tafts administration
The only hope that President Taft has now for anything more
constructive and enduring is from the short session of the Jlst Con
gress which will convene on December Cth and adjourn March 4th
1011 and not much is ever accomplished during this session The
President will have to content himself with recommendations
On pages 2 and B of this issue will be found our complete sum
ming up of the election results in the state and the nation
Mr Roosevelt has been resting at hid home since the campaign
ended and his retirement and silence have given occasion for
many gibes and rude thrusts at him Tile organs that have seen fit
to consider themselves his enemies are very general in Ibeclnini that
his opposition aided their cause and tbet now consider him thoroly
discredited and congratulate tlieinfelvta and the country at large
that the first great step has been taken tqnaid the elimiuaticu of ilte
yreat foe to the business stability of the nation
One a Kentucky paper professes to lament his unwisdom and
his fall and says that if he had held aloof and let the revolt take its
course in and against his party he would now be the man of the
hour and that silence during the last three months would have made
him president again in 1012
I Another Kentucky paper analyzes this supgefiticn and shows
how cowardly and perfidious such conduct would have been and
how unlike Roosevelt As a member of the party he had to fight
with the party and win or lose with it and that he did this in his
own thoro fashion is tremendously to his credit
But did his endorsement and campaigning for the Repuplican
candidates make votes for the Democrats 1 Did his help make the
defeat of Beveridgp of Harding of Stimson and the rest more sure l
Surely not even his enemies can believe that and of coursenone
of his friends To forever satisfy ones self on that score it is only
necessary to surmise what would have been the fate of the Republi
can party if there had been no Insurgents and then remember that
Roosevelt was the author of Insurgency and that the Insurgents
made no headway east of the Mississippi until he took command af
ter his return In nil candor what were the comparative chances of
the Republican party in New York before and after the Saratoga
j Convention t Cnn miyuiie believe that a fcket and a platfornuput
forth by the old guard would have made anything like as good a
showing as the ticket put in the field by the Roosevelt forces
did l Cleveland carried New York in I882again6t tile old gnaidby
200000 Dix won over Stimson by 02000 the difference 138000
represents pretty well Mr Roosevelts worth to the Republican tick
et in New York
No The Republican party has Roollev It to thank that its
defeat was not more overwhelming more humiliating It haS
I Roosevelt to thank that its reconstruction is already outlined and
assured He is neither eliminated defeated nor discredited and
for the successful party in the late election to say that his opposition
won their victories is to acknowledge a want of faith in their own
principles and advertise their own insincerity
At present Kentucky has eight Democratic and three Republican
congressmen In the next congress which will not convene till De
cember lUll there will be nine Democrats and two Republicans
One district the ninth has been redeemed using the language of
the partyAnd
And when you come to think of it redemption It a great word
with the politicans in these latter days For instance there is
I nothing RO common just now as the expression The country has
been redeemed from Republican misrule And maybe it has but
maybe it hasnt We have heard of such a thing as out of the fry
But be that as it may Kentucky is to bo redeemed Wo nreas
sured of that One District in the great stato has gone bad and
brought disgrace upon the entire commonwealth The proud heads

We know that there are dens and
traps sot not only in cities but in very
small towns to catch the innocent

such every child stopping from tho

The men controlling the affairs of this

As they are all local residents they are
able to keep in close touch with the needs
of the patrons and exercise strict supervi

their policy to loan its funds in such en

who can write his name and muster

earth cast In every mould of sin yet
