President Wilson Refuses to Come
Out for Suffrage Like
Hughes Did.
WASHINGTON, August 2.—Presi
dent Wilson today" dissipated any
hope suffragists might have had that
he might try to oat-Hughes Hughes on
the suffrage question. He authorized
an announcement at the white house
'"that he had not changed his attitude.
The president's position is still that
suffrage should be a development of
the state.
Hope for a regular political scrap in
the blue grass of Kentucky was also
knocked on the head today when the
president declined to make an ad

Ruth Hemenway, reader—Mis3
./Ruth Hemenway presents only those
,works which are worth while. Hetf
.'"plays with a message" are selected
from the best modern dramas cal
ling with the problems of the day in
v# popular manner. They combine
„tramor, pathos, and dramatic situa
ktiona in a way that appeals to the
.general public. The fact that she
,:kas returned to the same audience
|5 as many as five and six times in one
season shows that she gives what the
people want. In giving a play Miss
.Hemenway not only impersonates
each character, but retains as much

Jt easy for an audience to follow. It
tas been truly said that the audience
'^completely forgets the reader, and

Result of Primary Held Tuesday In
Missouri—Talbott Leads for
Prosecuting' Attorney
[Special to The Gate City.J
KAHOKA, Mo., Aug. 2.—One of
the warmest primaries ever held in
Clark county and the first congres
sional district was held Tuesday.
Great interest in the contest was
mainly centered with the democrats,
due to the fact that tbe district bad
five candidatee for congress to fill
the office held for Che (Past twenty
years by Hon. James T. Lloyd. Of
these five candidates, two hailed
from Clark county—John A. White
side and Charles F. Carter. Leaders
of each were busy, and during the
{last few weeks a bitter fight was
waged among tbe factions. White
side carried Clark county over Cart
er. The vote was *5 to 393. How
ever Whiteside was not in the race
outside of this county, but Carter,
according to late telephonic advices,
is only about 100 votes behind Rom-
Jue, of Macon county, with a good
chance to taker the lead and be re
turned the winner. Barker, demo
cratic candidate for governor car
ried Clark county, with Roach and
Houchin as his nearest competitors.
Barker received 339 votes, Roaidh Jtoi
and Houchin 221.
For governor on the republican
ticket, John HX Swanger was a gen
eral favorite, receiving a total vote
of 600 votes Judge tarnm second
with 116. Whiter 8. Dickey carried
the county for United States senator,
receiving 406 of the 800 votes cast.
There was a, warm fight on several

cratic and republican tickets. The
following named were successful,

The Reason for
This Great
& a
During the month of August we
are notified by our main office
to dl«tose of all summer stoek
and it Is up to* the local man
agement to clean up his stock.
The losses are not considered
during this month, as it Is the
policy of the Royal stores not
to carry any goods over to the
next season, so starting Thura
day morning, we will offer you
values that only occur once a
year. We have at this sale a
large assortment of high grade
dependable line of ladiea'
ready, to wear garments, and
ws must dispose of them at a
sacrifice. We will show shrewd
buyers or persons who believe
in wearing high price clothes,
when placed on sale, big
savings. We have a num
ber of high grade suits
that we are selling at $5.00,
$7.50 to $12.85, that are posi
tively values from $15.00 to
$35.00. It will pay you to visit
the Royal during this sale.
When the Royal advertises a
sale, you get the reduction.
Our 5 year success in Keokuk
Is due to the quality of our
clothes at the lowest prices.
Our large buying power for
three stores will save you
many a dollar. Trade at the
white gaberdine, pop
lins linens, black and
white checks that are
values to |1.75.

Carter, who appears to be the suc
cessful candidate for congress in this
district, has had a wonderful political
career. He served two terms as rep
resentative from Clark county. He
was then elected state senator and
is serving his second term. In all of
these contests he was bitterly oppos
ed by a targe number In his home
county. iWihen he entered the race
for congress he met similar opposi
tion, but he appears to have a facul
ty of getting what he goes after. The
contest for congress is not settled, as
yet, and it Is predicted that when
the official vote of the district is
made he will be a winner, although
by a bare majority.
