MAINE SWINGS BACK
TO GRAND OLD PARTY
Returns to Republican Fold After Two Years
Wandering in Democratic Wilderness
Moose and Elephant Unite to Win.
"As Mrtiru? goi p, so goes the Union,"
ha* be.-n a politi.-al axiom for the past
half century. Based on this wtli known
saying, it is safe to say that the repub?
lican:) will be victorious in November,
for in the election held in that state on
Monday the republicans won back the
goverr >rship, secured three out of the
four con-jregemen and a sufficient tna
j.ii'; in b'dh branches of the legisla?
ture the election of Edwin C.
?to the United States senate
to succeed Obadiah A. Gardner, the
present ?I.-mocralic incumbent.
It was a straight fight between the
two ?.I I parties, the progressive not hav?
ing a ticket in the fiold, and majority of
the bull mooee voters united with the
republicans to redeem the state from
democratic misrule. With only five
small precincts missing, which in 1910
cast sixty-six republican and forty-four
democratic votes, the result is as fol?
io wj for (.?-'veriior:
This vote gives the republican candi?
date a plurality of 3,032. The demo?
cratic plurality in the state two years
ago was 8,?560.
Complete legislative returns show
there will be twenty-three republicans
to eight democrats in the state senate,
and seventy-nine republicans to Beventy
two democrats in the lower house. This
gives the republicans 102 votes on joint
baliot to 80 for the democrats. Maine
will, therefore, be republican in every
department of government for the next
The Great Roanoke Fair.
Uniting the experience of ten years
with the expenditure of thousands of
dollars, the Great Roanoke Fair, Roa?
noke, Virginia, September 24, 25, 26
and 271 h, will prosent by far the best
fair in the state this fall. With the
faeilitits doubled atld the demand for
space for exhibit even exceeding the ad?
ditional area, visitors to the Great Roa
n-jke Fair will stand amazed at the pro?
gress of the fair since ten years ago
vhen Bet a precedent that nas followed
by many many cities and counties in the
state and revive i th?1 annual fairs. It
n ay be said that the Great Roanoke
Fairarou?ed the Pnthusiam which has
rejuvenated the Virginia State Fair.
To do this has r< quired remarkable busi.
tact and the brk.ging together of
the farmer and the manufacturer. The
G root Roanoke Fair is for education
i.nd then for ple-?sure. Education is for
the farmer who c-ies to see what pro
> the world bta made since an year
??go The fair is better than a farmers'
? that, it gives a vast display
?!? the work of other members of the
craft of tilling the soil, and it brings
I leisure of a aort that is cot harmful
;--.i i i? nee. ss;irv after the long siege of
spring a'.d sninr:;er work. The Grea
Roaaoke Fair offen scores on amuse?
ments on a dustieas mid-way?a street
?I .i'iy sprinkled with pil?and often dur?
ing the daya and nights, for the fair is
? -?rtiiiuous. free attractions will be seen
a::d band concerts heard. The railroads
?ntering Roanoke are making special
i ?les in highland Virginia, ard the
hotels and boarding houses will not
advance their usual charges for guests.
Roanoke has alwavs extended a wel?
come to strangers but never more than
during the time of the Great Roanoke.

about premium lists, exhibits or any?
