Bryan Carries Kentucky. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 5.-Bryan's plurality in Kentucky of 13;000, nine and possibly ten I)emocra ic congress men elected-a Republican loss of two seats-this is the story of the election in Kentucky at the close of a day which was marked by the polling of the largest vote in the history of the state. The figures on the electoral vote indicate a bare possibility that Taft will secure one of Kentucky's ballots in tha electoral college. Delaware Goes Republican Wilmington, Del., Nov. 5.-Taft's plurality in Delaware is 3,000, and the Republican state ticket, headed by Simneon S. Pennewell for governor and William H. Heald for congress, is elected by about the same plurality. Republicans Sweep New Jersey. Newark, N. -., Nov. 5.-The Repub lieaiis swept the state of New Jersey. Taft will have a plurality which will aplproach and may exceed that of Roosevelt four years ago, when it was rpward of 80,000. Seven of the ten (f)nnressmnen chosen are Republicans and the Republicans will control both houses of the state legislature. Close on Prohibition. Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 5.-Both the state qrn~d national Democratic tickets have won in this state by from 20, 000 to 30,000. The Democrats have carried all the congressional districts save two-the First and the Second. The comsplexion or the legislature as regards prohibition ts in dispute. NEXT VICE PRESIDENT. JAMES SCHOOLCRAFT SHERMAN. CLEAN SWEEP IN KANSAS Republicans Elect National, State and Congressional Tickets. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 5.-Republicans claim :7>0,()00 plurality for their state ticket and Taft. Attorney General lfred S. Jackson, who was opposed by the 11 uor interests, leads the ticket, \',yandotte, the big county of the state which includes Kansas City, Kan., went Democratic, nearly defeat ing Congressman Charles F. Scott, Republican. The Democrats made in reads on the Republican majority in the legislature, but the election of Jo seph L. Bristow, Rep., as United States senator is assured. All of the eight Republican congressmen were re-elected, most of them by increased mn tjorities. DEMOCRATIC ON THE PRESIDENTIAL TICKET But Missouri Elects a Repub lican Governor. St. Louis, Nov. 5.-An almost com plete reversal of indicated results in Missouri camp when the returns from the country precincts and the congest ed wards of the city came in. Nation ally the state is in doubt, with the chances slightly in favor of Bryan. His margin over Taft, however, is so slender that a few counties may wipe it out. There is little doubt but that Attor ney General Herbert S. Hadley has de feated his Democratic opponent, Cen gressman William C. Cowherd, for the governorship. With ninety-six coun ties heard from more or less complete ly Hadley had a plurality of close to 16,000, the vote in the state having failed to disturb the margin of 15,500 with which he left St. Louis. This, too, despite the fact that Kansas City gave Cowherd a plurality in excess of 3,000. The senatorial race took on a new aspect also when it became apparent that the Republicans had a chance to carry the legislature. If this has hap pened either Lieutenant Governor Mc Kinley, Richard C. Kerens or John Kennish will be elected United States senator. If the body remains Demo cratic Senator Stone will probably suc ceed himself, the returns showing that he has a good lead over Folk for the Democratic nomination. BY SMALL PLURALITY. Maryland Apparently in the Demo cratic Column Baltimore, Nov. 5.-The latest re turns indicate that Bryan carried Maryland by about 1,000 plurality, the total being Bryan 101,402, Taft 100, 339. The morning reports gave the vote to Taft by a plurality of 168, but as the day wore on more complete re turns showed a steady Democratic gain, which soon wiped out the slight Republican lead and apparently has put the state into the Bryan column. Close on Governorship. Concord, N. H., Nov. 5..-Taft has carried this state by about $0,000 plu rality. Henry B. Quinby, Republican candidate for governor, will probably have 4,000 plurality, but as a majority is required to elect, the vote of the minor parties may cut an appreciable figure in determining the resftlt. The legislature will be strongly Republi can and the two Republican congress man were re-elected. LOWER HOUSE IS REPUBLICAN L. 0. P. Retains Control of Congress. ABOUT SAME MAJORITY With Thirty-six Districts to Be Heard From Republicans Have Plurality of Thirty-five-Six Senatorships Are in Doubt, but the Upper Branch of Congress Remains About as at Present. Washington, Nov. 5.-With thirty six districts yet to be accounted for the Republicans have a majority of this ty-five in the next house. There are six senatorships over which there is some doubt, one each from Ohio, Oregon and Indiana, all of which are now represented by Republicans, and Colorado, Missouri and Nevada, which are represented by Democrats. Elim inating these six the next senate will stand 59 Republicans and 27 Demo crats, or if the division of the six should be in the next congress as in the present, 62 Republicans and 30 Democrats. BRYAN GETS HOME STATE Democrats Also Elect Governor of Nebraska. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 5.-Beginning with a brilliant victory in his home precinct, William J. Bryan reversed a mt.'lity of 2,000 in this city, carrying I this (Lancaster) county by a hand some plurality and will win the state by 10,000. His vote was unprece- I dented, Lancaster being counted the banner IRpublican stronghold of the Z state. George L. Sheldon was defeated for governor by 8,000, Ashton C. Shallen- I berger, Democrat, running slightly ahead of Bryan. Republicans are claiming the legis- ( lature by slender majorities. In the - First district Congressman E. M. Pol lard encountered the Bryan wave and his election is in d.-ubt. He lost heav ily throughout the district and Demo crats claim the election of Maguire by 500 votes. INDIANA SPLITS ON STATE AND NATION Taft Gets Electoral Vote. but Democrats Elect Governor. Indianapolis, Nov. 5.-For the first time since Thomas A. Hendricks was elected governor on the Democratio state ticket and U. S. Grant received the electoral vote of the state for the Republican national ticket Indiana has given a plurality to the Republican candidate for president and at the same time elected the Democratic candidate for governor. According to the latest estimate Mr. Taft received a plurality of about 15,000 and Thom as R. Marshall was victorious over James E. Watson, Republican candi date for governor, by about 8,000. The congressional representation from this state will probably be seven Democrats and six Republicans. The legislature is in doubt. Marion county, with its twelve members of the legislature, went heavily Demo cratic for the county ticket and car ried down with it the Republican leg islstive candidates and possibly Con gressman Jesse Overstreet. One of the Republican leaders conceded that the lawmaking body is very close, but he adhered to the opinion that the lead the Republicans have in the sev enteen holdover senators will save it to the Republicans on joint ballot and insure the re-election of Senator James A. Hemenway. Nevada Is Democratic. Reno, Nev., Nov. 5.-Reports so far received indicate a majority for Bryan in Nevada of 1,500 to 1,800 out of about 18,000 votes cast. Senator New lands, Dem., is re-elected by a popular vote with a majority of 2,000 to 3,000. Congressman Bartlett, Dem., Is re elected by a majority of 2,000.

A HAPPY EVENT On Thursday, Oct. 29, at 4 p. m., at her home near Ridgelawn, Mabel E., daughter of Mrs. Pauline Dore, and Arcade G. Simard, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Simard of Newlon, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. Anderson of the Peoples' church. Mr. T. A. and Miss Jennette, brother and sister of the groom, acted as best man and bridesmaid, while Miss Kennedy played the wedding march and Miss Grace Dore acted as ring girl. The ceremony was carried out in an ele gant manner, immediate relatives and friends being present to witness the happy event. After the ceremony an elaborate dinner was served. In the evening a reception was held by the parents of the groom at the Betty hall in Sidney. Fourteen people were kept busy serving supper, the hall being Sanner, 569; Mr. Sanner is therefore elected by a big majority.

Election returns were received on Tuesday evening at the Dawson County Club, the Jordan Hotel, Re publican Headquarters and the Ope ra House, where they were read at intervals during the vaudeville show. A large crowd was present at each place. filled with nearly 250 friends of the wedding party. Mr. Sample of Glendive sang a song and Mr. Lei per, also of Glendive, rendered a declamation, which was highly ap preciated. The congratulations which the young people received were many, as they start on their great voyage of life. They will live at the "Bak ing Powder Mine" for the winter. Communicated. Canada Land Sale A Failure. Are the people at last getting their eyes open to the fact that latitude has something to do with cold and climate, that the north pole is at least mildly cooler than the equator? Will they wake up too, before manI more millions are squandered in rail road fare, automobiles and "stake showers" to the fact that cactus cov ered, waterless plains need not be '.rushed" for? That they will have years and many of them in which to carefully select such lands at their leisure, if they think them peculiarly adapted to mixed agriculture? A late report from Winnipeg says: "An auction sale of a quarter of a million acres of Saskatchewan lands, which were advertised extensively for weeks at a cost of $30,000, to be sold at Regina this week, turned out a failure. But few persons attended the sale and the company canceled the remaining days. The attendance of American buyers was slim. "-Dako ta Farmer.
