Maine Dry,
Portland, Me.. Sept. 12. After a
day of almost constant surprises, it
appeared to-night on the face of the
Teturns from town and city clerks
in all but 196 towns and planta
tions, that prohibition was not de
feated in the special election of yes
terday, as indicated last night.
The results thus far tabulated
show a majority for prohibition of
465 votes. The most of the towns
yet to be heard from have been un
officially reported with small ma
jorities favoring the retention of the
prohibitory amendment in the Con
stitution, and any change in the
vote of these places is likely to help
the prohibitionists.
In addition to the 465 majority
shown by the clerks' returns, there
are fifty more "dry" votes known to
exist in Portland, which are not in
cluded in the city clerk's report, be
cause of an admitted error.
.The change from an apparent
victory from the wet side by 700
votes to 500 votes in favor of the.
"drys" came after prohibitionists
had conceded defeat and represen
tatives of those who sought the re
peal of the constitutional amend
. ment had sent out numerous state
in ents as to what would be done
For President.
Champ Clark is dear to the hearts
of all who know him and while
he is receiving words of praise from
all over the United States in no
place is he so much loved in his
beloved Kiogdom of Pike and the
reception which was accorded him
ot Louisiana Monday does not ex
press one iota of the esteem in
which he is held. No man has
done more for the people than has
Champ Clark and from all parts of
our grand country you can hear
them say well done good and faith- j
ful servant, we have found you
true, come up higher, we want you ;
to be President of this great nation, i
He would make a President to
whom the future citizens of Ameri
ca would point with pride.
For President Champ Clark.

rolled, and four teachers, three of
them being here for their first year

school has been gradually growing
iD attendance and is one of the
best schools to be found anywhere.
The work is thorough and com
plete and the school is one of which
Monroe City is justly proud.
Judge W. W. Rucker, the fearless,
able working Congressmen from the
Second District was with Monroe
friends a short time yesterday. No
district is wore ably represented in

In Judge Rucker we have a man
who is a friend of the people, a
man who knows how to do some
thing tor the interests of the peo
ple, a man who fights for the rights
of man, a man who fights greed
and graft a man who ha3 the abili
ty to do something for the people, a
man who has made a record for do
ing . things, a man who is honest, a
man who does things for the good
of his constituents and the entire
citizenship of the United States.
J. 0. Cozad, Burtus Janes and
Frank Bono returned last week
from a three weeks trip in the

land of the Alberta peach and the
luscious grape.
Having a surplus of brown wine,
I will sell it for one week only, by

The Monroe City High School is
equal to the best and has a reputa
tion which draws students from
quite a distance. All the teachers
in high school and grades are
teachers who have made a success
of teaching and all that is needed
to make this the best year in the
history of the school is the pupils
to be diligent and the parents to
heartily co operate with the teach
ers in the work.
Broken Arm.
Tuesday the Foot ball squad at
the high school were practicing
when Edgar Davenport tackled
James Umstatted and the result
was that Jim is now wearing his
right arm with the radius broken.
It is a mystery what caused the
break as he did not fall only plac
ed his hand on Davenport's shoul
der. Dr. McNutt fixed up the injur
ed member and Jim is getting
along all right.

Judging from past experience we
would advise those having surplus
poultry to sell, that you market it
before October, unless you intend
to hold it until November. We are
almost certain that from Oct. 1st
to 20th we will have a low poultry

Bluff City Telephone Co. Not Sold
to the Bell Home Telephone
Companies Independent
and Prosperous.
For several days we have been
hearing rumors of the Bell Tele
phone Company going to eat up the
Farmers &. Merchants Telephone
Company of this city and that it
had already bought the Bluff City,
the independent telephone compa
ny at Hannibal and also had in
some way absorbed the independ
ent telephone companies of several
towns near us. This fake news is
calculated to make the people tum
ble all over themselves getting into
the Bell band wagon but it has not
had the desired effect and will not
have as the people are onto the
tricks of the Bell people. Were it
not for the independent telephone
company you would not see the Bell
people spending all the good money
that they now are in putting their
plant in good repair as any kind of
service would do if they had the
field alone. We are glad to see
them spending so much money
here as it is good for our town and
we are glad to know that the Bell
is going to be able to give us such
good service. The independent com
pany has forced them to do the
work. It is the home company also
which enables you to get free serv
ice to neighboring towns. This be
ing true and the Farmers &. Mer
chants Co. being owned by home
people makes it the company which
is most entitled to the support and
patronage of Monroe people
Read what Mr. Ben C. Hyde, Vice
President and Treasurer of the Bluff
City Telephone Company, was in
terviewed recently by a Hannibal
Morning Journal reporter and said
in substance:
"Myself and my brother have pur
chased a controlling interest in this
plant, and I expect personally to
move my family to this city at
once and make it my home. I have
for a number of years, been a rep
resentative of the largest independ
ent telephone manufacturers in
America, and in due course of bus
iness became imbued with the idea
that Hannibal was one ot the best
prospects in the country for a bang
up independent plant. The policy
of the new company under the new
management will remain unchang
ed, except that we contemplate
some material extensions and im
provements, which will greatly im
prove the service and add to the
convenience of the telephone pub
lic." Mr Hyde states that the plant
will, in the future, as in the past,
remain a Home Telephone Compa
ny, and will in no way, be afiliated
with the Bell Company. ,Mr. Hyde
has for a long time been recognized
as one of the leading independents
in the state of Missouri, and the
people of this city expect he will be
able to do all he anticipates to
better and extend this telephone
In a letter Mr. E. B. Marmaduke
the Bluff City manager says that
he never said or intimated that the
Bell now owned the Bluff City
plant. It was the current talk here
that Mr Marmaduke had said the
Bell now owned the Bluff City sys
tem, so before believing anything
derogatory to the home telephone
companies you had better investigate.
