Democracy Wins in Colorado ■■ ■ —— Frank Delany a lid Jerry McWilliams Win But the County is Slightly Republican The news came in to Meeker !p frag mentary form. First it was Hughes; then Wilson; then Hughes, Slid fin ally Wilson. This last information arrived yes terday morning, when the word was flashed across the country Wil son was re-elected. The state Cal ifornia “turned the trick"—a state that never before In its history, was known to go for the Democracy In a natioual contest. New Mexico, hith erto a Republican stronghold, also went for the President. The electoral college will stdnd— Wilson, 273; Hughes, 258—as slpwn by un-official returns. ! Latest figures on the state contest indicate that Gunter is elected gov ernor by over 20,000 plurality. The balance of the state ticket has proba bly pulled through by small plural ities. Tiie Democratic county defeat la ameliorated by the state and nation al victories. Notwithstanding Mr. Baird's cam paign in this county, Ed Tayiof’a majority stands about the same as two years ago. Gentle reader, don't jump at the conclusion that the 224 plurality shown in our election table for Wil son is the true Democratic plurality in this county. It Is not. The true Democratic majority In this county is less than 100. It shows that like in California, New Mexico and other states, a lot of Republicans showed their patriotism and put party aside and voted to sustain the President in the trying ordeal through which he lias passed during the past three years. Returns indicate that the herd law was badly “swatted.” The late election has demonstrated two things very conclusively; name ly that Wall Street and “The Inter ests" cannot elect a president; and— that the West will have something to say in such matters, hereafter. The Frigid Hughes and the Icy Fairbanks evidently wasted time in their trips to the Coast country. The charge of the “Silk Stocking Brigade" on the Wilson Coast cohorts also seems to have been a case of “Loves’s Labor Lost." Reports show that President Wil son will have a Democratic Senate and House with him. Ed Taylor lias again carried every county in ids district, by increased majorities. Nuf ced. And the state is again “redeemed," but by the right party this time. Frank Delaney won a glorious vic tory. He carried every county in the district. This, his home .county, by 571 majority; Routt, 410; Moffat, 213; Pitkin, 290, and Garfield (Noonan’s county) by 383. This shows what the people of the Ninth judicial district think of one of the cleanest, whitest and ablest boys ever before the vot ers of the district. It also stands as a stinging rebuke to the Noonan cam paign methods. Jerry McWilliams received a ma jority of 780 in his home county of Routt, 105 in Jackson county, and 117 lin this county, and lost Rev. Mann’s - county (Moffat) by 300; thus making J Ids majority in the district over 700. * Good enough. And yet there are Republicans who would deny us this brief hour of bliss. Republicans (the leaders) here - about took it very much to heart, a But tiie Democrats, having grown n gray-headed in the cause of Democ i racy,reform and—defeat —were ready - to gulp down their usual dose. y Roosevelt can take passage for the headwaters of the “River of Doubt.” With his running mouth he helped 1 to re-elect Wilson; so nobody lias any further use for Idm. i Senator Fall of New Mexico can now take a “fall" out .of himself. He * was one of the most bellicose in de manding that this government send an army into Mexico, and “wipe up the earth" with the “greasers”; and i campaigned against Wilson oil tiie * Mexican issue. The returns would indicate that the voters of New Mex ico have sustained the President and repudiated the mouthy senator. They Knew His Record The Anti-Saloon League of Colo rado, issued its report just before tiie election, in which it endorsed or “black - listed" candidates as best suited its purposes. It endorsed and lauded “Honest , John" Noonan, tiie Republican can didate for district attorney; and of Frank Dglaney, tiie Democratic can didate, it said: “People of the dis ’ triefc know his record." Of course, the intent of this statement was to throw | out the inference that Delaney’s rec ord was a bad one. But like all the other disreputable slurs handed out by Noonan and his followers, it made ! votes for Delaney. Yes; the people of the district knew Frank Delaney’s record and acted accordingly. There are all kinds of ways of mak ing a more or less honest living and being a member of the Anti-Saloon ' League is one of them. A Great “Againster” In his political advertisements, Candidate Henry J. Baird said lie was for—“A Protective Tariff on Col orado Industries," “Efficiency and Economy," “Against tiie “Pork Bar rel’," “The Flagrant. Caucus Rule of 1 the present Congress,” and “Against a Prosperity caused by manufactur ing and selling munitions of war." A lot of things to he “against." i But if Mr. Baird had “junked" it ail r at the start of the campaign, and hon estly told the people that he wanted Ed Taylor’s job, he might have re . celved more votes. You can only fool a limited number of the people at any time. In Russia more than half of the number of horses t.aknn to the war I have trotting blood in their veins. Many registered trotters of Orlotf or American origin are enlisted in the cavalry and artillery regiments. Some of them had fast enough rec ords. Tfie Imperial Board of Horse . Breeding after two year’s experience ( of the war says that the progeny of developed speed horses have demon strated much more endurance and i stamina than other breeds. The gov i ernment will, after the war, apply ■ more attention to the acquirement of . stallions exclusively of registered trotting and racing track records—.
