T. T. McDOUGAL, KD1TOK AND PHOPK1KTOI. frmt — ■ ■ —- ■ WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1910 The Result ot the Election. I he American people have said by their ballots that the Republican party must step down and out and tliat the Democratic party will take charge of the ship of slate. ' l'he Democrats have elected not only a majority of the lower bouse of congress but have gained control ot the \\ est V lrginia Legislature and will name a successor to Sena tor N. R. Scott. What was the cause? Many things no doubt contributed to Republican defeat. It is the opin ion of the writer that the high cusi of living had more than anything else to do with Republican defeat throughout the nation. Whether or not the the tariff has anything to do with high prices we are uot pre pared to sa\; but many people have become discontented on account ot having to pay so much for every thing they eat and wear, and dis content is Mire to vent itself against the party iu power. Many thous ands of Republicans throughout the country voted the Democratic ticket this year that have never be fore voted that ticket and we dare say will never again vote it. Thev just imagined a change might se cure for them cheaper grub and wearing apparel. Another thing which helped do feat the Republican party in this state was tho arbitrary way in which the stale committee has been doing business, the officeholders on the committee desiring to hold on with a death-like grip to their posi tions and thereby perpetuate them selves in office. But this lease of power for the democracy is not likely to last long. We believe the Republican party will clean its house with a leorgam zation that will not be partial to a few’ politicians, and strengthened by this defeat will assume entire control of governmental affairs in 1912. Hurrah tor St. Louis. The Republicans of St. Louis wou a great victory. Barring only a couple of constables and two jus. tices of the peace, the Republican victory was complete. Not even a member of the General Assembly, of whom eighteen were elected in St. Louis, was allowed the Demo crats, and the pluralities of the candidates on city tickets range from 20,019 to 27,984. I he Advance congratulates the Republicans of this county on their good work at the polls. While the organization of the grand old par ty went to pieces all over the state the vote in this county shows the Republicans of old Wavne |wt*re uoilcd ami loyal to the party, llad the Republicans in all the other counties of the state voted ami worked as did those in this county every Republican candidate for congress in West Virginia would have been elected. --—- — A democratic exchange thinks neither McGraw nor Chilton should be considered wflen it comes to making a choice for U. 8. senator. Kditor John J. Cornwell would make a creditable senator. He is conservative and sensible. Tijk Democratic landslide was caused by Republican votes. These votes were only loaned, temporarily, to the Democracy, in 1912 they are likely to be cast for the Re- j publican ticket. Who would have thought it! ike i ri-State Enterprise flopped to democracy only three or four weeks ago and almost the entire country has been changed politically. What jgreat influence! *-- --- i ks it was a landslide sure enough. Had it not been the Republican candidates in old Wayne connty would have certainly been elected. •“ -—■-;—^ — is the Lincoln county-seat con test Hamlin won by a large major ity. Ditto Kingwood.

Mr. Tuft, who rule-s the nation Offers this, his proclamation : Whereas, Providence continues Blessing us from clay to day, And the boon of indeptmd nee lias, we take it, come to stay ; And whereas, Indulgent Nature Lavishes upon as still Bounty in excess of wlmt the Weather and the bugs can kill; And « herein?, The old republic Couldn’t be* unproved upon, Not A-ithstandiug everybody Cots to run it off and on ; Therefore, I, as delegated Now and for a short tune hence President, decree that turkey Shall go up to SO cents. That's about all there i» to it. Once the country raised its own, and the White House proclamation whs not greeted with a groan. Father simply grubbed the hatchet, mother got the water hot, father read the proclumut'on to the turkeys in the lot, all the young and female turkeys promptly fainted from the shock, and after due farewells the gobbler laid his head upon the block . No one telephoned the bnteher, ask ing what a turkey cost. No one in his deep resentment wished the Pilgrims hud been lost. No one, while the feast proceeded, knew the torment of the rack figuring upon his napkin what the clay had set him back. Everybody was provided, as the founde rs pre-supposed. No one can be very thuukful, if the truth should be disclosed, paying what we pay for tur key, nud, for all of Heaven’s gifts, feel ing that the day was founded for the Armours and the Swifts. November gets its name from the Latin uovem (nine) and was originally the ninth month of the year. This brought Thanksgiving around two months earlier than we have it now, and it became very unpopular. The in surgents, who constituted a majority in the agricultural districts, were bitterly opposed to \f. They mude two conten tious: First, that young turkeys were not old enough to market; second, that crops had not progressed to the point where it was possible to make out whether there was anything to be thank ful for or not. In 713 B. G. the storm broke. The insurgents carried Gaul, j Britannia and 17 other doubtful states, | and the Forum immediately assembled and made November the eleventh mouth of the year. The festive colt will snuff the air and don his heavy underhnir, and the frenzied candidate will jump and hop | around the stump. He’ll point with pride ^nd view with fear, and suck and blow the atmosphere, and then, together with his cult, await with prayer the re sult. Does reason haply hold its sway, or is it madness for a day will tell the peo ple what to think and put the country on the blink ? One cannot tell, but must abide the count that sees him justified in courage, confidence or doubt, accord ing ns it may turn out. One thing alone is sure, it seems, and that is this: No one esteems a patriot in politics. We only trust him while lie sticks to war, with ull its thrill and throb. The moment that he wants a job somewhat conspicuous for pay , by Jove ! we don’t know what to say. But whether we do i'lor well, election day alone can tell, or whether love for us and fear did any good, will then ap (>ear. We have to judge men as wo may, and where the candidates all say about the same thing m the end, one scarcely knows who is a friend. At any rate, the show will fly, and the wild duck spin across the sky with ts»th eyes focused on the ground, and his tail-pie ce going round and round. The eager hunter will deploy and supplement the live decoy, and the pneumococcus, while ho toots, will per- ! forate hi* rubber boots. A little shooting now and then in relished by a lot of men. They likff* to gallivnnt about and let the farmers run them out. It does them good to! feel, by jing, that Morgan don't own everything, and if he came in conse quence, and also tried to climb the fence, togethe r with his dog and gun he, tc»o, would also get the run. November will be nnusnal this year, j for the: reason that there will be no full j moon. This is because there will Ik? a i total eclipse? of tho moon on the night of the 10th, when it wonld otherwise be fall. This eclipse will Ik? visible in ! the United States and in Wall street, i and it will send bacon down a conple of j points. The breath of Winter will distil upon the outer windowsill, and; the chilling • calf will hmnp bis back aud burrow deeper in the stack. The hired innn, with wintry spurts, will put on both his undershirts, and the plutocrat who sells us coals will pry our bodies from our souls. Then let us all embrace the chance aud tie as merry as we mav, for whether we desist or dunce, the fiddler is for all to pay. The gentle autumntime will pass, the countryman will kill his hogs, the cotton-tail will weave the grass around the obtuscuted dog-, the honk ing goose will rule the heights with that weird hollering of his, and the wolf will sit around o’uights uud tell the moon how thm he is. O woe is us that could enjoy the au tumntiine for aye and uye, and what with growing soul, employ its witchery from day to day The phosphorescence in thesky, the quail soft-piping on the hill, the olackbirds ever bobbing by, and the wind soft sighing where it will. But happiness can never last, as An tony could apprehend, and holding Cleo to him fust, destroyed himself before the end. The summer cometh after spring, and winter, merciless withal, as truly must succeed, the sweet aud gentle bauitishineuts ot tail. At any rate, upon a day Deciphered in tin* almanacs, December, desolate aud gray, Will come to whistle through the cracks.
