Illinois and Kansas for Wilson and
Marshall—A General Shakeup
for the House Com
f1 mittees.
Woodrovy Wilson, President.
Thomak R. Marshall, yijee PreskUsnt.
Only the popular vote of the three
presidential candidates and complex
ion of legislatures that will name
United States senators hold interest
in the general election. .
Control of the senate in the Sixty
third congress now is practically as
sured the democrats. Conceding to
the republicans the legislatures of all
States still in the doubtful column,
the democrats will have a vote of for
ty-eight, or one-half of the entire
ipembership of the senate, with a
democratic vice president in the chair
to cast the deciding ballot in case of
a tie. A few States are yet to be
heard from definitely. A senator from
one of these would give the democrats
a clear majority and it is possible
their strength will be even further in
creased by winning in several.
Kansas has been added to the dem
ocratic column. The States in which
the complexion of the legislatures are
yet to be decided are: Illinois, Michi
gan, New Hampshire, Oregon, South
Dakota, Tennessee and Wyoming. Or
dinarily, Tennessee could be relied
upon to help the democratic party, but
the factional fight there may prevent
in, Äis crisis. In Illinois there are
edifications growing out of the
multiplicity of parties, rendering it un
certain whether there will be a sen
atorial election. In that State there
should be chosen a successor to the
deposed Senator Lorimer, as well as
to Senator Cullom, whose term ex
pires on the 4th of next March. If
there should be no election, the ef
fect would be to favor the demo
crats by reducing the membership of
the senate to ninety-four, of which
number the forty-eight already chosen
would be a working majority.
Although democratic control of the
house of representatives by a greatly
increased majority is assured, a gen
eral shake up of the personnel of the
important house committees in the
next congress will be necessary.
The all-important ways and means
committee, which will shape into bills
the tariff policies of the Wilson ad
ministration, was riddled by the elec
tion. Of the fourteen democrats on
the committee, four will not return.
Two of these, however—Hughes of
New Jersey and James of Kentucky—
go to the senate. Randell of Texas
and Brantley of Georgia are retired.
Out of the seven republicans on the
committee, but two apparently will
remain. John Dalzell of Pennsylvania
and Samuel W. McCall of Massachu
setts, for shapers, appear on the re
publican tariff policy, were not can
didates at the polls, and Ebenezer
Hill of Connecticut, James C. Need
ham of California and Nicholas Long
worth of Ohio were beaten. Sereno
E. Payne of New York and Joseph
W. Fordney of Michigan may be the
only republicans left.
The election of Representative Sui
ter as governor of New York leaves
vacant the chairmanship of the im
portant foreign affairs committee.
Flood of Virginia is ranking member
of the committee. He declined the
chairmanship two years ago to accept
the lîl? important territories commit
tee. fether he or Garner of Texas
is exTrected to get the place.
The election of Morris Sheppard of
Texas to the senate, if senority is
followed, will move Representative
Burnett of Alabama to the chairman
ship of the public buildings and
grounds committee, which handles the
big public buildings, so-called "pork
barrel" bill. The vacancy at the head
of the public lands committee caused
by the failure of Representative Rob
inson of Arkansas to return will prob
ably be filled by moving up Represent
ative Graham of Illinois, at 'present
chairman of the committee on ex
penditures in the interior department.
After apparently holding Illinois,
from the time the polls closed, Colonel
Roosevelt lost his twenty-nine elec
toral vote« when the assembling of
Statewide returns showed a definite
victory for Governor Wilson.
The preliminary count gives Wilson
>SSjftoxit"aiely 4G per cent of the vote,
ü ^rsevelt 29 per cent and Taft 25
per cent. The total vote thus far
reported is less than in 1908, while
official returns are expected to bring
it a.bove these figures. In 1908 out
combined vote of 14 ,030,858 cast
for Taft and Bryan, President Taft
received more than 54 per cent. Re
turns from Minnesota confirmed the
claim oji ^oosevelt to the twelve elec
toral of that State.
The victory for Wilson in New
Hampshire did not carry with it con
trol of the State legislature, where
the republicans again have a majority
on joint ballot, and will dictate the
selection of a United States senator.
Representative Henry of Texas,
chairman of the rules committee; Rep
resenta|fi\ Burleson of Texas, a mem
ber of appropriations committee,
and Representative Underwood, head
of the ways and means committee,
have been mentioned as cabinet possi
X by-phi»»» of the general election is
the success of woman suffrage in four
of the five States where constitutional
amendments were submitted to the.
people. The victory of the women
was complete in Kansas, Arizona and
Michigan, and returns from Oregon
indicate they had succeeded there
also; while from Wisconsin came re
turns showing the decisive defeat of
the proposal.
Democrats Who Won.
Two in Colorado, where John F.
Shafroth, democrat, for the full term,
and C. S. Thomas, democrat, for the
short term, will be elected by a demo
cratic legislature.
One in Montana, where republicans
and progressives conceded the elec
tion of T. J. Walsh, democrat.
One in Kansas, where W. R. Stubbs,
republican, conceded the election of
his opponent, W. H. Thompson, demo
crat. *
One in Delaware, a democratic leg
islature, assuring the return of a dem
ocrat to succeed Richardson, repub
lican, retired.
One in New Jersey, where William
Hughes, democrat, will succeed Briggs,
The uncertainty as to West Vir
ginia, indicated in earlier reports,
seemed apparently the only obstacle to
a democratic majority. Definite re
turns are still lacking from Oregon,
Wyoming, Tennessee, New Hampshire,
Illinois, Iowa and South Dakota.
Late figures from Nevada indicate
Pittman, democrat, is leading and
probably is elected.
The New Senate.
The personnel of the new senate in
the National congress will show many
well known veterans, with a large in
fusion of new blood. Among senators
holding over are:
Root, Lodge, La Follette, Gallinger,
Penrose, Clapp, Culberson, Kern,
O'Gorman, Rayner, Shiveley and
Hoke Smith. Others re-elected or like
ly to come back include Senators Ba
con, Tillman, Borah, Nelson, Sim
mons, Martin, Bankhead, Davis and
Among those who failed of renomi
nation and whose names will not ap
pear on the senate rolls after the 4th
of March is Shelby M. Cuilom of Illi
nois, whose congressional career goes
back to the time of Abraham Lincoln.
Included in this list are Senators Cur
tis of Kansas, Bourne of Oregon and
Gamble of South Dakota.
Retire Voluntarily.
Senators Bailey of Texas, Crane of
Massachusetts, Guggenheim of Colo
rado, Richardson of Delaware, Burn
ham wf New Hampshire and Wetmore
of Rhode Island retire voluntarily.
Among the most prominent of the
new men who already have been
chosen are Ollie James of Kentucky
and Joseph E. Randell of Louisiana,
both present members of the house
and both democrats. Mr. James suc
ceeds Senator Painter and Mr. Ran
dell Senator Murphy Foster. Former
Governor Vardamann comes as the
successor of Senator Leroy Percy of
Mississippi, and former Representa
tive William Hughes as the successor
of Senator Briggs of New Jersey. Rep
resentative G. W. Norris of Nebraska
will probably succeed Senator Nor
ris Brown.
The progressive republicans who
were candidates for the senate and
whose success seem assured by the
election of legislatures in sympathy
with them are Borah of Idaho, Norris
of Nebraska, Keynon of Iowa and
Sherman of Illinois.
Senator Dixon of Montana, who has
given his time to Colonel Roosevelt's
campaign, is in the doubtful list, with
the chances against him.
A report from Omaha, Neb., says:
A democratic legislature doubtless will
be called upon to elect a republican
for United States senator.
House of Representatives./
Democrats 288, republicans 116, pro
gressives 13. Districts unreported 18.
The foregoing showed the standing
of the house of representatives in the
Sixty-third (new) congress.
The total of 288 gave the democrats
seventy more than the 218 necessary
for a majority and fifty-eight more
than the democratic membership in
the Sixty-second congress.
Later returns did not diminish the
heavy democratic majority in the
house of representatives, but they did
play see-saw with "Uncle Joe" Cannon
and finally left him defeated by a ma
jority of 600. Gillette of Massachu
setts probably will succeed Cannon's
position as senior republican oil the
appropriations committee.
Congressman Richard Bartholdt, re
publican, was returned a£ St. Louis for
his eleventh term by the slim margin
of nearly a thousand vote».
In the Tenth Illinois district George
E. Foss, the republican brother of
Governor Foss of Massachusetts, was
defeated for re-election by Charles M.
Thompson, progressive.
In the Second Massachusetts dis
trict Thomas L. Hisgen, who four
years tifo wan candidate for president
ob the social tabor ticket, was defeat
ed 1» a race for congress with Fred
erick H. Gillett, republican. Hisgen
was running as a progressive.
In the Eleventh Missouri district
Theron E. Catlin, republican, who was
unseated by the last house, was de
feated in his race for re-etection by
William L. Igoe, democrat.
Two men were fatally injured and
four others are suffering from severe
scald burns as the result of the blow

Mrs. Louise A. Lindloff, spiritualist
and crystal gazer, was found guilty of
murder by a jury in Chicago Monday,
and her punishment fixed at twenty
five years in the penitentiary. She
was charged with the poisoning of
her 15-year-old son Arthur.
Latin-Americans Are Jubilant.
New Orleans.—Latin-Americans in
New Orleans are jubilant over the
election of. Woodrorç Wilson. At a
meeting of the Central American
colony Friday a telegram of congratu
lations was sent to Mr. Wilson in
which the belief *as expressed that
the Wilson ration would
mean the de&th'Hft rfoiiai» diplomacy
which has brought untold suffering
and loss of life and property to our
people, and the re -establishinent of
pleasant social and commercial rela
tions between the United States and
the republics to the south.
The telegram expressed the view
that the strong anti -American feeling,
engendered by the Knox policy in
Latin-America, would be dispelled by
the general belief of the people of
the southern republics that "Mr. Wil
son would accord them a square deal."
The telegram was signed by Don
Policarpo Bonilla, former president of
Honduras; Angel Ugarte; General
Francisco Altschul, former governor
of Granada, Nicaragua, and Colonel
Carlos Martinez, a prominent Nicara
guan exile.
Jose Santos Zelaya, former presi
dent of Nicaragua, cabled from Spain
to General Altschul to extend his con
gratulations to Mr. Wilson.

John B. Parker of New Orleans.
New Orleans Sugar.
New Orleans.—The market for
sugar held steady Saturday, with
some little improvement in receipts,
although the aggregate was light for

in conditions, but crop reports as to
actual output were again pessimistic.

tional Congress, the Patrons of Hus
bandry, hailing from all over the
United States, but. with Louisiana,
Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, Okla
homa, Kansas, Missouri, Alabama and
other Southern States very strongly
represented, opened its thirty-second
annual convention promptly Friday.
The nrst day was devoted to the de
livery of the addresses of welcome
by the local speakers, to responses by
members of visiting delegations and
to an address on the legislative needs
of the farmers by Senator-elect Jo
seph E. Ransdell of Louisiana.
President Charles F. S&nford of
New London, Ohio, was chairman.
Archbishop James H. Blenk, Senator

Chairman E. O. Wild of the local
executive committee, Colonel E. W.
Wickley of East Chicago, Ind.; Colo
nel Beneham Cameron of North Caro

of the marvelous richness of Louis
iana's soil, the extent of her resources
and the progress made in agricultural
lines in this State.
Colonel E. W. Wickley of East Chi
cago, Ind., responded for the members

turing, transportation and mining."
Professor Stockbridge declared that
it was the votes of the farmers that
elected Woodrow Wilson president
last Tuesday. Votes always stand for
principles and for ideas.
Crowley Sanitarium Opens.
Crowley.—The Crowley sanitarium,
which has been in course of construc
tion for several months, has been
opened and is now ready to receive
patients. The new sanitarium is a
large frame building and is equipped
along modern lines in ever-y depart
ment. The building contains twelve
rooms for patients, tastefully finished
and many of them supplied with pri
vate baths. There are two large
halls, a well-equipped operating room,
a sterilizing room equipped with one
of the best sterilizers on the market,
a linen room, a drug room and a large
reception room. On the first floor is
located a colored ward, large enough
to accommodate a number of patients.
The entire building is heated by hot
water. The sanitarium is in charge
of Mrs. B. A. Bellew, matron.
The Crowley Sanitarium Company
was chartered May 24, 1912, and is
composed almost solely of local peo
ple and capital.
Reduce Loss of Damaged Cotton.
New Orleans.—Through the estab
lishment of the Atlantic and Gulf in
spection bureau, as a result of the
South Atlantic and Gulf steamship
conference, the local steamship agents
claim that the losses from damaged
cotton will be greatly reduced. The
operation of this bureau is a victory
for the steamship owners, who had
threatened to penalize the shippers by
increased rates if there was not an
improvement in the baling and cover
ing of cotton.
Cause of Fire Known.
Lake Charles.—The report that the
mill of the Anaco County Lumber
Company at Grabow, formerly the Gal
loway Lumber Company's plant, the
scene of the recent labor riot, had
been destroyed through incendiary
origin is absolutely incorrect.
A statement was made by B. R.
Moses, the genoral manager of the
company, who was^it Grabow at the
time of the blaze, that the fire origi
nated in the boiler room.
The mill was destroyed at a loss of
about $15,000, but ihe planer and over
4,000,000 feet of lumber was saved,
the loss being partially covered by in
Ownership of Railroad Lands.
Alexandria.—A number of people
gave testimony Friday before the
United States special commissioner,
R. S. Thornton, in equity suits in
volving the ownership of certain rail
road lands. F. G. Hudson, Jr., of Mon
roe and Attorney J. B. Roberts of Col
fax represented the complainants, the
Goulds et al, and Cass Moss and J.
T. Long of Winnfield represented the
Provide for Additional Teacher.
Alexandria.—The city board do
nated $600 for the purpose of employ
ing additional teacher in the High
school to take care of the additional
number of pupils that have entered
this session.
Mandot Off for the Coast.
New Orleans—Joe Mandot, the local
lightweight who fought a ten-round no
decision bout Monday night with Ad
Wolgast, and by a majority of the
newspapers was declared the winner.
Pretty Young Woman Arrested.
Houston. Tex.—An officer from El
Oampo came to Houston on Wednes
day to take into custody a pretty
young woman who is wanted on the
charge of assisting W. T. Goodwin in
escaping from jail at that place.
Mrs. Jones—What did you say to
the janitor?
Jones—I told him that he could
make some warm friends if he would
only turn on a little heat.
Barthell, Ky.—"I had a skin disease
on my face, neck and hands that tor
mented me all the time and when I
would get hot the places would burn
so that I had to keep my face wet in
cold water. It began as pimples and
indeed it was disfiguring, for it would
get in spot* on my face; «md bands as
large as a quarter of a dollar. It would
get into blisters sometimes and I sure
did suffer. My face burned all the
time. It was this way so bad for
about six years and I tried everything
that I could hear of, hut nothing Aid
any good.
"One day I found the Cuticura Soap
and Ointment advertised and ordered
some at once. I would wash my face
good with the Cuticura Soap and then
apply the Cuticura Ointment and they
have cured me. It would take half a
tablet to tell all I suffered in those six
years." (Signed) Mrs. Delia Hill,
Jan. 3, 1912.
Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold
throughout the world. Sample of each
free, with 32-p. Skin Book. Address
post-card "Cuticura, Dept. L, Boston."
Newspapers and Literature.
All this over emphasis of the un
meaning surface is due to a confusion
of newspaper and literary standards,
ends, aims. The word literary has come
to suggest an absence of red-blood;
spinners and knitters in the sun; the
35 cent magazine crowd; this is non
sensical of course. In its elemental
meaning literature is at least as stern
a job as journalism, albeit the inten
tion and function of the latter is mere
ly to present things that happen, of
the former to volatilize such material
into hovering and potent meanings, to
strike the rock and raise a spirit that
is life.
Truth About Old Age.
George F. Baer, the famous Phila
delphia railroad man, said on his
seventieth birthday:
"I agree with Professor Metchnikoff
about the wisdom of the old. Profes
sor Osier made it fashionable to de
cry gray hairs, but my experience has
been that the old not only possess
wisdom, but they seek it also."
With a smile Mr. Baer added
"The only people who think
are too old to learn are those
really are too young."
English Stump Speech.
A correspondent, "Old Briney,"
sends us the following specimen of
frenzied stump oratory: "Feller
