39 STATES VOTE
FOR GOOILSON New Jersey Man Will Have 429 Electoral Ballots. ROOSEVELT GETS SIX STATES President Taft Finishes with Two States and 8 Electoral Votes — Democrats May Control Unit ed States Senate. POPULAR VOTE. Wilson 6,393.997 Roosevelt 4,307,305 Taft ...3,359,364 Taft (1908) 7,628,908 Bryan (19CS) 6,409,104 Wilson’s electoral vote 429 Roosevelt’s electoral vote.... 90 Taft’s electoral vote 8 States carried by Wilson.... 39 States carried by Roosevelt. 6 States carried by Taft 2 Fuller returns from the election indicate that Woodrow Wilson car ried thirty-nine states and has 429 electoral votes. This leaves Roose velt second with six states and 90 electoral votes, while President Taft has but two with 8 votes to be cast for him. The latest significant change was the change of places by Illinois and Minnesota. More complete returns took Illinois from Roosevelt and added its 29 votes to the Wilson col umn, while Minnesota’s cornfield vot ers were found to have gone for Roosevelt, which took the 12 electoral votes out of the Wilson column and gave them to Roosevelt. There is at present not the slightest doubt as to the lower branch of con gress being decidedly Democratic and that the Democratcs will have the largest representation in the history of the party or nation. It merely is a matter of whether the Democrats will have 120, 130 or some other equally large numeral as the index of their majority over all opposition, in cluding Republicans and Progres sives. The latest stack-up showed 291 Democrats, 133 Republicans and 11 Progressives. This would be a clear majority of 135 for the winning party. United States Senate Still Close. The Democrats appear reasonably certain of controlling the United States senate, although it will be very close. The Republicans had a majori ty of seven in the present session with three vacancies. While the Demo crats have held their own in the states, the indications are that they have taken two seats away from the Republicans in Colorado, one in Dela ware, one in New Jersey, one in Kan sas, one in Montana, one in New Jer sey, one in Kansas and one in Mon tana. They may win one in Nevada, while Democrats believe there are chances in Oregon, Tennessee, lowa and South Dakota. In Illinois the United States senator will have to be elected by a coalition, as the Progres sives and three Socialist members of the lower house will hold the balance between the two parties. The day developed the defeat of three very well known Republican congressmen, Joseph G. Cannon, Wil liam B. McKinley and Nicholas Long worth, son-in-law of Colonel Roose velt, but a Taft supporter. Situation in Illinois. All shadow of doubt as to the minor Democrats on the Illinois ticket has been dispelled. They come through with the head of the ticket. Late re turns settle definitely that there will be no party responsibility in the next general assembly, say party leaders. No party has a majority with the Progressives holding the balance ol power. Of the twenty-seven congressmen from Illinois, eighteen will be Demo cratic, three Progressive and six Re publican. It is likely that the pres ent Illinois legislature will claim the right of electing a successor to Lori mer, and efforts are being made tc get all factions to agree on some Re publican, preferably Lawrence Y Sherman, who defeated Shelby M. Cullom in the preferential primaries Composition of Legislatures. It is conceded unofficially that the next Delaware legislature will have twenty-nine Democrats and twenty three Republicans. In Massachu setts the Democrats have added the secretary of state to their winning list, the post being won by Frank J- Donoghue, a young newspaper man. The legislature will be Republican on joint ballot by fifty-four plurality. Returns on Governors. In 29 states electing governors, the Democrats not only maintained their own, according to late returns, but overthrew majorities in three states, Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska, in which Republicans were the in cumbents. In addition, a Democrat was elected to succeed Wilson in New Jersey. The following results were indi cated among ethers: Illinois —Edward F. Dunne, Demo crat (incumbent. Republican) elect ed.

Of many incidences in which an ac cidental discovery revolutionized a whole industry there is none more striking than that which enabled Samuel Astbury. in 1720. to impart to pottery that white glaze which is its chief beauty. Chancing, while jour neying to London, to halt at Banbury, be noticed that one of his horse’s eyes was badly inflamed. He consulted the hostler, who flung a redhot flint into a basin of water, thereby easily reducing it to a powder, which he applied to the injured eye. Astbury, who had watched the process, guessed that at length he had solved the problem which had so long perplexed him. He procured a cartload of flints, had them fired and pulverized and, mixing the powder with pipe clay and water, applied it to his ware, which, after the final bak ing. became white and shining. This invention, which he Improved upon by introducing calcined flint Into the body of the ware, was soon universally adopted.—Exchange.
