In tht
Has Over 300 Elec
toral Votes.
Taft Appears to Have Carried
Only a Few Small States.
New York, Nov. 6.—Latest
returns from all states gave
H» Wilson 395 electoral votes, 4*
Roosevelt 117 and Taft 8, with 4
the 11 votes of Idaho, New
Hampshire and Wyoming still
in doubt. 4*
New York, Nov 6—With the elec
tion of Woodrow Wilson to the presi
dency and Thomas Marshall to the
vice presidency assured by the earlier
returns the reports gave indications
that the electoral vote of the Demo
cratic candidates would pass the 300
The size of the popular majority
given the Democratic national ticket
in the states outside of Illinois, that
might give electoral votes to either
Taft or Roosevelt, were matters of
It was certain, however, that Illi
nois would give an overwhelming ma
jority to Roosevelt, while the race in
Pennsylvania was close, with Roose
velt an apparent winner.
Early returns gave Governor Wil
son and Governor Marshall the solid
South and Connecticut, Delaware,
Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massa
chusetts, New York, West Virginia,
Indiana and Missouri.
As returns from the West began to
come in earlier estimates were con
firmed, and Montana, New Jersey and
New Mexico were added to those that
seemed certain for the Democratic
candidates, while scattering returns
from San Francisco and Los Angeles
made it probable that California might
join the Wilson-Marshall column,
though the Progressives still claim
the state.
Rhode Island also became a doubt
ful state on the returns and, based on
the later votes reported, it seemed
not wholly improbable that its five
electoral votes would go to Wilson.
Taft Pluralities Dwindle.
The early returns gave an apparent
victory to Taft in New Hampshire
and Vermont, but the Taft pluralities
dwindled to a very few hundred votes
In each state and seemed likely to be
wiped out entirely.
The vote in Pennsylvania was
amazingly close, the returns from
more than 1,000 precincts, embracing
over 185,000 votes, giving each of the
three leading presidential candidates
more than 60,000 votes.
Many surprises were shown in the
returns. The New York state assem
bly seemed to be overwhelmingly
Democratic. In Illinois indications
were that Judge Dunne, the Demo
cratic candidate for governor, had won
notwithstanding the heavy Roosevelt
victory. Former Speaker Cannon
seemed to have been defeated for re
election to congress in Illinois.
In addition to Roosevelt's certain
victory in Illinois the confident claims
of the Roosevelt managers that Mich
igan and Kansas would fall Into the
Roosevelt column seemed verified by
the partially complete returns. Iowa,
first given to Roosevelt, seemed to
swing to Wilson in later returns. The
returns from California were meager,
but left this state in doubt between
Wilson and Roosevelt. The uncertain
ty regarding Vermont was settled by
the announcement of the complete
vote which gave Mr. Taft a majority
of 924 votes.
The Providence, R. I., Journal con
ceded that state to Wilson and with
the result in New Hampshire it
seemed probable that New England,
with the exception of Vermont, had
tone to the Democratic column.
But little definite news from states
of the Pacific West was received.
The tabulation of votes in the other
Western states was so slow as to
make predictions impossible as to
where their electoral votes would go.
Election of O'Hair Conceded by For

Danville, HI., Nov. 6.—Twenty-eight

about 800.

his son to Lake Andrew.
High School 43, Seminary 0.
The Seminary was defeated last Sat
urday by the local high school team,
the score being 43 to 0 From the first
first it could be seen that the Seminary
was in for a good drubbing The first
touchdown came in the first three min
utes of play On the next kick off Nord
strom caught the ball and on his being
tackled his wrist was dislocated and he
had to be taken from the game. This
weakened the Seminary backfield consid
erably. The High School team played
together in good style and if they play
next Saturday as they did last, they
ought to win at Hector. There was a
large crowd at the game last Saturday
and both teams were given the best of
support by the rooters.

The Hon. John L. Bleakly,
Auditor of State,
Des Moines, Iowa.
The Central Life was examined (firing the months of July and
August by the Iowa Insurance Department under the supervision
of J. Fairlie, Actuary and Examiner, *nd report was made to the
Insurance Department September I5th( 1912.
We take pleasure in submitting to the people of Willmar and
Kandiyohi County an abstract of this report showing the total ad
mitted assets and insurance in force on June 30th, 1912, as reported
by the Examiner.
The books were found correct in balance and well kept, though
from an examiner's standpoint a simplification of records would be
acceptable. Outside of- petty-cash^tft^aental expenses, disburse
ments are made by voucher-cheques.
The various reports submitted to the Department since the last
examination were found to agree with the ledger accounts as re
gards income and disbursements and assets. Some of the items,
however, were included under headings not in conformity with the
usual requirements, but as these were of minor importance no at
tempt was made at this late date to change the annual statements
as reported. Entries are now being made on the proper basis.
Financial Statement on*3une 30th, 1912, shows admitted assets
of $2,118,358.56. The total insurance in force on June 30th, 1912,
Securities to the amount of $1,877,183.84 were held on deposit
with your Department on June 30, 1912. The balance of the Com
pany's holdings consisted of $58,850 of mortgage loans, $5,929.26
of policy loans, $3,904.57 of municipal paving certificates, $500 of
stocks, and $648.55 of premium notes. These were examined at the
Company's office and found to be in due order. The Bank deposits
$62,022.71 were evidenced by certificates furnished by the various
banks, due allowance being made for outstanding cheques and
amounts in course of remittance.
A very complete set of agency records is kept. The commission
allowed and the expense ratio are favorable, considering the age and
size of the Company, and the business renews well and shows ex
ceptionally good mortality.
The policy forms are clearly worded and the surrender values
allowed are favorable.
All death claims and matured endowments incurred since the
last examination were inspected and found to have been paid
promptly and in accordance with the policy provisions. In certain
cases where the policy did not provide for cash surrender values,
values were granted including an allowance on account of antici
pated profits before the surplus-accumulation period had expired.
Payments are evidenced by detailed statement of surrender-value
allowable and by cancelled cheques.
In 1911 the Company purchased a block of land, 132 feet square,
on the northwest corner, Ninth and High Streets, Des Moines, with
the intention of erecting an office building thereon in the near future.
The purchase price was $38,000- Valuations of the property, ex
clusive of the buildings thereon, were obtained from several com
petent sources, all being in excess of the book-value. As the man
agement preferred the conservative course of carrying at its present
book value, no excess of market value has been credited.
As will be seen from the foregoing and from the recent annual
reports of the Company it is progressing rapidly and yet without re
course to "high-pressure" methods and altogether the outlook is
decidedly bright. Acknowledgement must be made of the ready as
sistance rendered by the officers and staff during the examination.

Des Moinfcs, Iowa, Sept. 15, 1912.
Sir: In accordance with your instructions, I have made an ex
amination of the Central Life Assurance Society of the U. S. A.,
located at Des Moines, Iowa,, being assisted by Messrs. C. N. Spen
cer, C. H. Bleakly and C. B. Winston. The examination covered the
period from June 30th, 1908, the time of the last departmental ex
amination, to June 30th, 1912.

Respectfully submitted,'
Actuary and Insurance Examiner.
The above is a report of the Central Life Assurance Society,
which has its State Office in Willmar, and is represented by the fol
lowing agents in Kandiyohi County:
J. F. Branton, State Manager E. Paulson, Cashier Anton Bak
ke, District Manager, located at Willmar. Peter Henderson and Os
car Orred in Spicer A. N. Mlckelson, New London A. J. Syse, Sun
burg August Norman, Svea M. N. Johnson, Pennock Harry M.
Ashley, Raymond and eighty-two other agents located in the differ
ent parts of the state.
With the good showing the Company is making with the adver
tising they are giving Willmar and Kandiyohi County, is there any
reason why they should not get the life insurance business of Will
mar and Kandiyohi County? Remember that it is always policy to
help the people that are helping you.

Yesterday was an ideal election day,
yet a full vote was not cast in the
County. The vote on President was
332 less than that east in 1908. In the
City of Willmar fully one-fit in of the
voters did not come out. This condition
was no douL* due to a large extent to
the fact that there were few local con
The result in the county on president
was somewhat divided, yet Roosevelt
gets a clear majority over all of 17
votes Wilson is second, with 85S (92
less than Bryan in x908) Taft is third
with 484 (1,828 less than in 1908) Debs
fourth with 197 a gain of 62 in 4 years)
and Chafin last with 98 votes, a loss of
124 votes since 1908.
For governor, Eberhart gets a lead of
278 over Ringdal. but lacics 827 of a
majority of the votes cast for governor
in the county. It is the same old
story of winning1 by dividing: the people.
It is evident that the Roosevelt voters
did not take his new party very serious
ly for they gave the rest of the Progres
sive ticket a small vote. Lobeck re

this county.
