FAIR GO-EDS FIND

Odd Mistake Made in Engrav
ing Sheepskins for Uni
versity Minnesota.
MORE THAN 200 ISSUED
EXTRA PRECAUTIONS HAVE BEEN
TAKEN TO PREVENT A REPETI
TION tF THE ERROR FOR THI8
SEASON.
St Paul, Minn., May 29. No matter
how proudly the fair co-eds of the
June graduating class of 1008 gaze up
on the sheepskin diplomas they re
ceived at that time that sheepskin
tells" them' that "he" instead of "she"
was awarded the honor. This year
the registrar of the Minnesota Univer
sity is gazing over each manuscript to
avoid a recurrence.
The joke of giving a masculine di
ploma to a feminine graduate was
played all unmeaningly upon these fair
co-eds by the engraving company
which did the Work for the University
of Minnesota. Upward of two hundred
of these papers were issued,
i So far as is known only two women
of the entire class noticed a mistake
in the, wording, which vitiated every
claim they laid to be called the gent
ler sex.
When the 550 diplomas intended for
the class in question arrived at the
university it was found that the en
graving company had failed to take in
to consideration the fact that two hun
dred members of the class were women
and had sent diplomas intended for
men only.
In the space left for the name of the
graduate the names of the girls were
entered in a correct manner, but the
wording which followed carefully stat
ed that "he" had been found qualified
by the regents to receive the diploma
and that for; this reason; the diploma
was granted to "him."
The diplomas came too late to have
the mistake rectified, so the "sheep
skins" made, for men in every respect,
except that the name of the woman to
receive It was entered in each vacant
space, were thrust upon the unsuspect
ing co-ed.
i Diplomas Intended for this year's
graduating class came to the universi
ty a few days ago and all are' ; being
carefully scrutinized. The parch
ments were engraved by a bank note
company, of Philadelphia, Pa. The
name of the recipient is hand painted
on each diploma. AH are made of
genuine sheepskin leather and are
practically- Indestructible, fire having
no effect upon them.

III THE RESULTS
Democratic and Republican
Counties Furnish Surprising
Results in the Fierce Op
tion Fights.
THIS BORNE OUT BY
THE ELECTIONS HELD
On the Face of the Figures
And the Dope Bucket En
tirely Upset Tis Hard to
Make Forecasts.
Indianapolis, May 29. The follow
ing counties that are republican have
voted themselves dry: Wabash, 889
majority; Huntington, 1,600; Grant,'
2,183; Howard, 1,433; Gibson, 1,074;
Elkhart,, 879; Delaware, 2,950, In all
of these counties there was a hard
fight
The following democratic counties
have voted dry at local option elec
tions: Decatur, 1,708; Switzerland,
900; Adams, 1,044; Shelby. 745; Miami,
1,066; Ohio, 28; Jackson, 362; Jefferson,
106; Monroe, 419; Madison, 1.2G8.
Wabash Was First.
Wabash county was the first to hold
a local option election after the law
was enacted.' Every possible effort
was made by the temperance people
to carry the county for the moral ef
fect it would have on the members of
the legislature when it came time to
vote on the bill to repeal the4ocal op
tion law. Kqually strenuous efforts
were made "by the liberals for the same
reason, and the result was a red hot
fight Wabash county generally
gives a Republican majority of about
1,200.
Decatur county, im which is located
the city of Greensburg, is democratic,
and there was a warm fight over the
local option question, but the county
rolled up one of the largest dry major
ities of the season.
Was Battleground.
Huntington county, republican by
about 500, was the battle ground for a
big fight. Both sides were well or
ganized, and much money was spent.
But democrats and republicans alike
led the dry forces.' The drys had the
support of republican and democratic
newspapers.
, Switzerland county, democratic, is
one of the smallest counties of the
state and contains many people of for
eign birth, and yet it gave a dry ma
jority of 900 most remarkable when
the size of the county is considered.
Grant county, one of the rockribbed
republican counties of the state, which
is always good for a republican major
ity of 3,000 to 4,000, was the scene of
a bitter contest in which every possi
ble political game was played. There
are 1.80O veteran soldiers at the na
tional soldiers' home at Marion, and
this precinct in which they voted went
wet by a big majority, and yet the
county went dry by the enormous total
of 2,183. Evidently some one besides
republicans voted dry, for the city of
Marion went wet
Howard Republican.
Howard county, another strong re
publican county. In which saloons have
always flourished and in which Koko
mo was for years a wide open boom
town, came through with a dry major
ity of 1,433.
Adams county was the biggest sur
prise of" all. This ; is a , democratic
county, by 1,200 majority. There are
many Germans in the county. Adams
is one of the counties that is represent
ed in the state senate by Steve Flem
ing, the Fort Wayne brewer, the ac
cepted leader, of the fight for-the re
peal of the county option law and the
recognized head of the brewers of In
diana. It was thought certain, that
Adams would go wet, but It gave a dry
majority of 1,044.
Shelby is another democratic county
in which the saloons fought for their
Uvea, but they lost out when the coun
ty went dry by 745.
Counted on Miami.
Miami county, democratic was one
county that the wets fully expected to
carry in order to punish Burton Green,
democratic member of the house, who
voted at the special session for the pas
sage of the local option law. Green
was defeated for renoini nation and a
republican was elected in his place just
mro oxjimtsleoiiaii, buitdat, mat 30, isoa-
for spite. But the drys carried the
county by 1,066. -
Ohio county, the smallest, county .in
the state, the closes Indiana county to
Cincinnati and other wet spots, went
dry by 26, after the nastiest little
fight of the season. t v
Elkhart county.-republican, the
home of Senator Proctor, the disciple
of the licensed ' saloon, went back on
its senator and gave a dry majority of
879. . ..
Jackson county, democratic, also
gave an exhibition of bitterness in its
local option campaign. Jackson
county is the home county of Thomas
Honan, speaker of the house, who tried
to help repeal the county option law.
It is also the home of Judge Joseph H.
Shea, democrat, who managed the cam
paign of Benjamin F. Shively for
United States senator, and who landed
the place for him., Shively, unques
tionably was elected by the liberals
and the liquor people, and Judge Shea
proved himself one of the craftiest pol
iticians in the Democratic party in In
diana in that fight But even he and
the regular democratic majority in the
county counted for nothing when it
came to local option, and the county
went dry by 362.
The Hardest Fight
' Delaware county, republican by 5.000
always, was expected to go wet be
cause of the conditions in Muncie,
where the saloons were supposed to
rule everything. The hardest fight of
the entire lot of elections was made in
that county, because this was the first
county containing a large city that
held an election, and the people were
anxious to see what a large city would
do. Delaware gave the record break
ing majority of 2.956 for the drys, and
more than 100 saloons were driven, out
of business. Party lines cut no figure
in Muncle. Democrats and republicans
alike were in the thick of the dry fight.
Jefferson county, democratic, went
dry by 106. The city of Madison went
wet by more than 300, but the country
wiped out that majority. Jefferson is
a river oounty and everybody regard
ed it as safely wet before the election.
' Had Bitter Contest.
Monroe county, democratic in which
the city of Bloomington and the Indi
ana university are situated had a bit
ter fight on its hands. The county was
dry by remonstrance, but it is charg
ed that nearly as much liquor has been
sold there since it was made dry as
was sold before, and there was every
indication that the county would go
wet at the election. But there, like
in many other counties, party lines
were wiped out and all parties voted
dry.- The majority was 419.
Madison county is now doubtful
county politically. It has practically
always been a republican county, but
during the test three or four years it
has been electing democratic members
of the legislature, it is believed, for the
sole purpose of trying to head off antl
llauor legislation. But in the last
house, Madison county had one rcpre
sentative, William M. Coahran, who
was a temperance man. He voted
against the repeal of the local option
law, and when a local option election
was called in his county be placed him
self at the head of the dry forces and
led the fight against boose. - The re
sult was a dry victory by 1.268. Mad
ison county is now counted in the
democratic column.
Wayne county, the first county to
rote wet, is a heavy republican county,
and a Quaker community. And yet
it voted wet because the saloons in
that county have ..always been law
abiding and have never Incurred the
111 will of the public, as they have in
most places.
- Cass Democratic
Cass county is democratic and it
narrowly missed going dry, the wet
majority being- only 108.
Blackford county,' also democratic,
had a narrow escape, the wet majori
ty being only 134. Blackford county
gave Marshall, democrat, for governor
a majority of about 800.
Spencer county, republican by 200,
situated on the Ohio river, went wet
by 43.'; ;
Posey county, democratic by only
80O, gave a wet majority of 1449. show
ing that others besides democrats vot
ed wet Posey voted wet because
Vanderburgh, with Evansville, Is her
next door neighbor, and . the Posey
county folks knew that Is their county
went wet it would merely drive her
people to Evansville for their drinks,
or mean the establishment of blind ti
gers In their county.
: Franklin county, democratic by near
ly a thousand plurality, went wet by
only 439. Evidently several hundred
democrats voted dry.
Floyd county, with a normal demo
cratic plurality of TOO, went wet by a
majority of more than twice that num
ber. It looks Hke a good many repub
licans voted wet In Floyd.
; Now. there Is the list - It show
that, although party lines govern in all
other kinds of elections, when It comes
to the liquor question they do not bind
at all. ' Republican and democratic
have gone wet and republi
Come
Today
can and democratic counties havegone
dry.
What will happen in Allen, St Jo
seph, Lags and Vigo counties, if elec
tions are called there? And what will
happen In Marlon county? It must
be admitted that thus far the drys have
far and away the best of the situation
even carrying some of the counties in
which the saloon was most strongly in
trenched. If Steve Fleming could
not prevent Adams county from, going
dry when he was representing it in the
state senate, could he prevent Allen
county from going dry?
On the other hand, if a rock-ribbed
republican oounty like Delaware, with
one of the largest cities of the state.
can be carried by the drys by a tre
mendous majority what will happen
in St Joseph county, also heavily re
publican, if an election is held?
And if Gary can be made dry by re
monstrance with lt heavy foreign pop
ulation, what will happen in Lake
county if an election is held at which
the voters may express their prefer
ence without 'anyone knowing how
they vote? ?
These are some of the things that oc
cur to one's mind when he studies the
results in the various counties that
have already voted.
