FOR REPUBLICANS; KAROINGELECTED Senator’s Victory One of Most Decisive in History. DEFEATS THE OHIO GOVERNOR Practically All of the Northern Statea Help to Rile Up Tremendous Popu lar Plurality for the Repub lican Candidate—Carries All Doubtful States. New York, Nov. 3.—Warren G. Hard ing and Calvin Coolidge have been elected president and vice president of the United States. The Republican victory is so great that it amounts to the landslide which was predicted by the most enthusiastic members of that party. The ticket won by one of the largest popular plu ralities in the history of American politics. 1 Governor Cox was snowed under In the admittedly Republican strongholds, and In many of the states classed as doubtful he was beaten by substantial pluralities. New York, it was esti mated, went for Harding by 1,250,000; Ohio was claimed by the Republicans by 250,000 and the Democratic press there admitted Harding’s plurality was 100,000; New’ Hampshire returned to the Republican column, and West Vir ginian’s early returns indicated It had gone against Cox. Missouri, too, w’as claimed by the Harding managers. Here are the approximate plurali ties for Harding in some middle west ern states; Illinois, 300,000; lowa, 150,000; Indiana, 85,000; Michigan, 150,000; Wisconsin, 225,000. If as President Wilson insisted the balloting was a referendum on the League of Nations, then the Versailles pact has been repudiated with astound ing emphasis, and particularly by the women of the country, the over whelming majority of whom voted sol idly for Senator Harding. The gen eral opinion among political observers w r as that the is to he taken as a repudiation of t.ne Democratic adminis tration and as an expression of the widespread desire for a “change.” At eleven p. m. Governor Cox wired his congratulations to Senator Harding. This was about fifteen minutes after his newspaper had conceded Harding’s election. Ohio Strong for Harding. Ohio, having stepped out of the Re publican ranks in 11)16 to help elect Mr. Wilson, gave Harding a regular McKinley plurality. The plurality for Senator Harding is claimed by Repub lican lenders to run in excess of 250,- 000. In Cleveland, for instance, which went strongly for Wilson four years ago, 539 precincts gave Harding 97,- 368 to 56.507 for Cox. Columbus gave in 647 precincts Harding 82,455; Cox 49.764. In the face of such returns the Cleveland Press, a paper which ardent ly supported Cox. conceded Ohio to Harding by at least 100,000. State Chairman Clark wired Sena tor Harding that his’ home state had given the Marion candidate a plurali ty of 300.000. Harding’s own precinct seems to have been actuated by local patriotism, the vote being Harding 373, (’ox 76. West Virginia, another of the so called doubtful states, showed the same Republican trend, Senator Hard ing leading by two to one in the first score of districts to report. In concededly Republican territory like Massachusetts, the Harding vic tory was sufficient to overturn dis tricts that had been Democratic for more than 25 years. Boston, never Republican since McKinley’s victory over Bryan, gave the Republican standard hearer n plurality of nearly 20,000 and in the state the Republi can lead was estimated at 125,000. In the Middle West. Missouri, with 16 electoral votes vital to Governor Cox’s cause, appeared on the face of incomplete returns to be swinging into the Republican column. In districts that had been Re publican in 1916 the Democratic vote was almost negligible. In Kansas and Illinois the Republi can victory was conceded almost from the receipt of the first returns. In these states Mr. Cox had apparently not held much more than the Wilson strength of 1916. while Senator Hard ing had added to the Hughes strength three out of four of the new women voters. The Republican lead in Illi nois was put as high as 250.000. However, admitting the general and unmistakable impression of a great Republican victory based on early re turns, Democratic national leaders were far from throwing up the sponge, keeping in mind the experience of 1916. They claimed Kentucky and Idaho had gone Democratic, according to their re ports, and that later figures would change the apparent results in other sections. Despite the lesson of 1916, w’hen nearly every newspaper in New York was forced to reverse itself, the Man hattan newspapers early announced the result. The World, Post and Brook lyn Eagle, all Democratic, conceded the defeat of their candidate early in the evening, convinced that Harding Provision Buyers! •m I .

Even a subject so essentially pro sale as the law was Interwoven with poetry In ancient Ireland, where jus tice was administered by the File, or poet, the most Important person in the country after the king. In olden times verse was employed when the matter to be recorded was of particular Im portance, or of a nature that called not only for grace and beauty of expres slop, but for dignity of language as well. When the ancient laws of Ireland were revived,* says the Christian Science Monitor, under the direction of St Patrick, a File was summoned “to put a thread of poetry around them.” This Is believed one of the reasons that so much of the text of the Irish laws Is in metrical form. From 12 to 15 years of special study was needed to qualify a File for the legal profession. For A Rainy Day Some folks do not plan for the rainy day of the future.
