Republicans Carry the State for Roosevelt and Elect Part of Their State Ticket. Republicans Claim Majority in Lower House of the Legislgture, and a Majority . on Joint-Ballot. Roosevelt has carried Missouri. The man with the "Big Stick" has raised the time-hardened crust of the moes back Democratic majority the majority that for two generations has been con sidered invulnerable and has let in the daylight. For the first time in over thirty years the old state has joined the great procession and cast its vote for Republican electors. The returns are not all in, but their tenor is all one way. Every precinct from evey county shows Republican gains. In not a single instance, as far as heard from, have the Democrats in creased their vote of 1900, and in many The team of Solomon Loffer took a turn about the blcck Friday forenoon, Oct. 28, 1904. Mr. Loffer had a quantity of medicine in his buggy, and was pre paring to go to the country on a profes sional trip. He was going to tho vehicle, and was within a few steps, when the team broke loose from the hitching post and made a dash. They ran around the block, and finally wound up in a barbed wire entaglement not far from the sta tion. The buggy was considerably dam aged, and much of Mr. Loffer's medi cines destroved. Maitland Herald. III Loyal Holt. Loyal old Holt county by her im mense majorities returned for the entire Republican ticket, places herself in the front rank of Remibiiean counties of the states. Not a candidate was lost. The hpad of the ticket both for Presi ded and Governor shows the remarka b'e gain of nearly 400 majority, and a gain of 200 in majority in the congress ional race. Neither of the two partus polled their full voting streugth, the tDemocracy suffering the greatest loss, this we presume was owing to the dis satisfaction existing as to the national ticket and the exposures in Democratic state affairs and their weariness of state machine rule. The Republican stay-at-homes did so from over confidence as to the national and county tickets, little thinking or believing it possible that Missouri's electoral vote might be cast for Theodore Roosevelt, and as the re turns come in from the various parts of the state, every indication points that way. The management of the county campaign in the hands of County Chair man Moore, was of the very best and he was ably assisted by his secretary, Har ry M. Dungan. The county committee as a whole were active and prompt in answering the chairman's demands. The haye have reason to be proud of Tuesday's results and the party has reas on to congrate Mr. Moore and his as sociates on the splendid victory. covnties the Democratic loss has been phenomenal. Walbridge is running considerably behind the national ticket, and Folk's vote is greater than that of Paker's. Republican Congressmen are probably elected! in the Fouth, Fifth and Fif teenth districts, as well as in the Tenth and Eleventh with the Sixth in doubt. I Every indication points to the election of the entire Republican state ticket excepting governor. The legislature it is thought will also be Republican on joint ballot, thus electing a successor to Sowator Cockrell. The premium list of the Holt coun ty Fancy Poultry Association has been issued and comes from the press of the Mound City News, and is a highly cred itable piece of work. The premiums are quite liberal, and as an inducement a liberal number of special premiums have been offered, which should secure a large number of exhibits. The show will be held in Mound City, December 6-10, 1904. Maitland expects to be enjoying electric lights some time during the coming week. ROOSEVELT TIDAL WAVE SWEEPS THE COUNTRY I Roosevelt Elected President of United States by Phe nomehal Plurality. Popular and Electoral Vote Are the Largest in the His tory of the RepublicVote of Confidence of the American People. 4 Jr bbbbbbbKKPIi lu99SiHmlKb y Theodore Roosevelt has been elected President by probably a greater plurality of the popular vote than was ever cast for a candi date for President, and by a larger majority of the Electoral College than was ever before given. It was a clean sweep for the Republi can party. The Republican candidates carried New York. New Jer sey, Connecticut and Indiana, the old doubtful stages of the North. He carries West Virginia, the home of the Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate, and until 1896 a part of the Solid South. He has gained all the states of the West, including Missouri In most of the states his lead is greater even than McKinley's was in the Republi can tidal wave of 1900. 343 Electoral Votes are now conceded to Roosevelt and 133 to Parker. Fulkerson Beats Wilson. Frank B. Fulkerson, the Republican nominee for congress in this district,has defeated Francis Wilson by nearly 1,000 majority. Mr. Fulkerson carried every county in the district excepting Platte; this being Mr. Wilson's home, he car ried it by l,f50. Mr. Cochran's majority in Platte county two years ago was 1,676. Two years ago Mr. Cochran car ried St. Joseph and Buchanan county by a majority of 2.800; this year Mr. Fulkerson carries it by 850 majority. Mr. Fulkerson's majorities in the vari ous counties of the district are as fol lows: Andrew, 593 Atchison, 200 Buchanan, 816 Holt, 858 Total,- 2,467 Platte, Wilson's majority 1,550 Fulkerson's majority, 917 The Judicial Race. In the contest for circuit judge of this fourth judicial circuit, between Judge Wm. C. Ellison, of Nodaway, and John E. Schooler, of Worth county, the re turns as received by telephone indicate the election of Judge Ellison by G13 ma jority, the majorites in the various coun ties being as follows: Ellison. Schooler. Gentry 38.1 Worth G73 Nodawav 4I7 Holt...." 792 Atchison 10 Total...' 1,555 Ellison's majority, GK. Mrs. Margaret BrooKs, of Savannah, is visiting her s ster, Mrs. Lucy A. Pe tree, this week. Mrs. Brooks is the oldest settler now living in Andrew county, and she and her brothers and sisters are probably the oldest settlers of the county now living in or out of the county. Their father, Jonathan Earls, came from Kentucky and took up his homestead one mile east of Savan nah in the fall of 1837, Judge R. Born now owns the farm. He left his wife and family in Clay county that winter, and they joined him in Andrew county early in 1838. Mrs. Petree was then but a few weeks old, having been born in ; Clay county in December, 1837. Jona than Earls was the first treasurer of Andrew county; and he and his family were very prominent in the early his tory and development of the county. There were 11 children in the family, six of them, viz: Mrs. Petree, Mrs. Brooks, Mrs. Martha Walker, of St. Jo seph: James Earls, of California, and Benj F. and Weeden S. Earls, of Salt Lake City. Weeden S., is the youngest, being 64, and Mrs. Brooks is the oldest, being 76. Mrs. Petree is the next o the ( youngest. They are all healthy, strong and vigorous for their age. Mrs. Brooks, for instance, would easily pass for 60 years of age. Last Saturday November 5, 1904, Mary Ann, wife of J. J. Garner, of the Monarch district, met with a severe ac cident. She was on her way to Noda way, and when near the iron bridge her team became unmanageable and ran sway, throwing Mrs Garner out of her vehicle down a steep embankment near the bridge breaking a collar bono and bruising her quite badly.

Senator Kennish closed the cam paign for the Republicans at the court house in this city on Saturday evening, with a splendid speech, covering na tional, state and county matters. He was greeted, as he always is, with a packed house, and his interesting talk was frequently punctured with hearty applause. Mr. N. F. Murray having just returned from West Virginia, being present, was called upon and made a splendid talk upon natiooal issues.
