WISM THE WINDER Democratic Nominee for Presi dent Sweeps the Country Has 395 Electoral Votes Governor Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, was at Tuesday's elections chosen as the next presi dent of the United States, and will be inaugurated as such on Thursday, April 24th. The vote in his favor was overwhelming, and he will have in the electoral college the largest majority giv en a presidential candidate in years. Last night's revised to tals gave him 395 votes, Roose velt 112 and Taft 24. Wilson carried thirty-seven states. Roosevelt is credited with Illinois, Iowa, Kansas. Michigan, Pennsylvania and Washington. Malio, Utah, Vermont and Wyo ming are in the Taft column?. South Dakotas five electoral vot es will probably go to Roosevelt. The democrats have the solid south and the states of Connec ticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ww York, West Virginia and Missouri. Besides a number of the western stattes. One pecul iar feature is that the states in which women have suffrage are ill in the Wilson column. Kven California, reputed to le the home of the "bull moose" and the home of the vice-presidential nominee on the bull moose ticket, went democratic. Roosevelt was a poor third in his home state. New York, and also in Ohio, Taft's home atate. The returns clearly demonsttat that only the split which resulted in the formation of the new par ty are responsible for the demo cratic victory in the nation. No matter of principle was involved, but the conditions which severed the republican party eotild have had no other effect. SHOOTS TWO AND KILLS SELF Principal in Arkansas Tragedy Former Philip Business Man In Associated Press dispatches from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, under date of November 1st, we find the following meagre details of a tragedy that has disrupted the home of a family well known in western Stanley county. The dispatch says, "Dur ing a fit of temporary insanity Marcus Collier, a merchant of this town, today shot and killed his sister, Mrs. A. L. Poe, per haps fatally wounding his wife and then committed sui cide.'' Mr. Colli#* was for son* n»«n ths engaged in the mercantile business in Philip, occupying one of the rooms in the Dupree building. He removed with his family to Cottonwood, engag ing in the same line of business there. About a year ago he be came a bankrupt, and after his affairs had been closed up at Cottonwood, moved to the Ar kansas town, During the latter part of his residence at Cotton wood he became addicted to drink, and the friends of the family here believe that that habit, together with the misfor tunes he met in business life, are responsible for the circum stances which lead up to Fri day's sad affair.

For three fourths of the game the husky viesterners outplayed our men and only the speed of Jimmy Craig and a little bad break in the luck prevented the Coyotes leaving with the WYI\Tine p* South Dakota was the first to score and for about two hours it looked very much as though it would have a monoply of the scoring business. Two long for ward passes early in the second quarter, the last one a beauty from Coffey to Sheeks put the Coyotes on the ten yard line with a clear field and Sheeks made the most of it. Unfortunately for him, however, he was forced over in the far southwestern cor ner of the lot and this gave Jim mie Craig a chance to use his speed to spoil the punt out. South Dakota was unable to try for goal but their six points ^ooked as big as the Black Hills for the rest of the afternoon. Th« dash displayed by the western line kept Michigan on the defensive nearly the en tire time until late in the last quarter. Once an unlucky fumble after a double pass on the kick off had enabled South Dakota to reach Michigan's 15 yard lintr on the very first play, prevent* ed the westerners from adding another touch down, for the trick completely surprised the Michigan team. On an other occasion Ferguson tried a drop kick from their fort} yard line, but failed by many feet. In the last quarter Michi gan seemed to rally and fought South Dakota down to the 15 yard line only to lose it on downs. Fergusou tried to punt against the wind but Jimmy Craig broke through so fast that the South Dakota back had to Mtirrv and kicked high and out side two yards in advance of the scrimmage line. From there Michigan battered over for the tying touchdown which Patter son converted into an easy goal, viuning one of the hardest fough games ever played on Ferry Field by a score of 7 to 6. The work of Sheekg^ Jmlay, Coffey and Meter stofcf out a bove that of the rest of the South Dakota team, though the whole western line fought like de mons. Until the very finish Mi* chigan was forced to resort t# fakes in order to gain. South Dakota played a fast tricky garni and has nothing to be ashamed of in the defeat. Her ends out* played Michigan and the use of the forward passes made Michi gan rooters shake in their shoes. For the Wolverines cast Thomf, son and Jiiuy Craig were the whole works. Thompson's punt ing was at one stage of the game the only thing that kept Michi gan in the game. The game was played ia a soggy slippery field that spoiled more ian one play for both teams.
