Comparative Election Figures.
Tho total voto cast In the general
election this year, according to tho
figures Just Issued, was less than that
of 1008, which means, no doubt, that
thousands of republicans romalncd
away from tho polU through sheer
disgust. In 1008 tho total voto was
14,582,987; this year lt'-was 14,
.Those who bet that Wilson's total
would be less than Bryan's four years
ngo won, for according to theso fig-
urco, Wilson had 0,160,748 as com
pared with Bryan's 0,303,128. Also
thoso wagering that Wilson would
not match tho comblnod voto of Taft
and Roosovolt won, for Wilson lacked
moro than 1,000,000 of it.
Ono of tho eurprlBlng features of
these returns Is tho small disparity
botweon tho Taft and Roosevelt
totals. Whllo Roosovolt's backers
havo boon claiming 4,000,000 popular
votes for their man, the figures show
tho colonol received 3,928,140, as
against 3,370,422 for Taft. Consider
lng tho vast number of republicans
who evidently did not voto at nil, and
others who supported Wilson, this
showing is qulto surprising for Taft.
Bit if t)iat theory contains, then, of
course, It niUBt bo conceded that somo
democrats failed to voto at nil or for
The socialists gained nearly n quar
ter of a million votos, ralliug far

about the same tlmo thnt tho presi

arrogated' to himself a,n,d ,hls com

man based his claim upon tho fact
that his company negan Its operations
at tho soil, therefore was peculiarly
destined to servo tho-people..

The first legislative business that will
come before the senate when It meets

viding for submitting to tho states a bro-
posed constitutional amendment fixing
tho terms of the president and vice presi
dent of tho United States at six years.
and making persons who have served In
tho office of president Ineligible for re
electloq. This resolution was reported
favorably by the senate judiciary com
mittee. It Is carried on the senate cal
endar as the unfinished business ot that
There- were Indications today that an
active effort would bn made to have tho
senate adopt the resolution. From pres
ent prospects those In favor of the mea
sure are hopeful ot success. A similar
resolution, presented, by Ucpresentatlvo
Clayton of Alabama, has., been reported
favorably to tho house tiy . the Judiciary
cotpmltlee of that body, of wjdeh Mr.
Clayton Is chairman. It was, predicted
today that It the senate should adopt the
Cutnmlns resolution, tho house would fol
low suit.
The chances are thnt when tho Cum
mins resolution Is debated In the' sen
ate thero will be much discussion as to
whether, should the required number of
states favor the proposed amendment,
thus making It part ot the constitution.
It could bo held to apply to Woodrow Wil
son's term as president, or would not be
come operative until 1917'. Although there
aro many republican and progressive sen
ators who are In favor of the Cum
mins resolution, It Is probable that some
of them, perhaps most of- them, would
Insist that ,fo proposed amendment
should be so changed as 'to prevent Wood-

Whether sentiment will develop In con
gress for or against including In the pro
posed amendment a provision that would
prohibit ex-Presldcnt Roosevelt or Presi

has not been discussed by senators or
representatives now In "Washington who
aro Interested In the subject.
Coincident with the discussion concern
ing the Cummins and Clayton resolutions,
thero Is talk In Washington that friends
of Champ Clark have decided to begin
work right away with the object of hav
ing Mr. Clark nominated for president by
the democratic party In 1916. It Is argued,
In behalf or this movement, that there
will be nothing In It disloyal to President
elect Wilson. Mr. Clark's friends contend
that the one-term plank In the democratic!
national platform, on which Dr. Wilson
was elected. Commits him to thqt princi
ple, and that It Is perfectly proper for
the Clark adherents to assume that
President-elect Wilson will not be a
candidate to succeed himself.
Ono of the arguments adavneed in favor
of the one-term, resolutions pending lr
congress Is that the principle Involved
was endorsed by tlw overwhelming dem
ocratic victory this year. It Is believed
that the house, with Its present large
democratic majority, will acc.pt the reso

A little load that winds Its way
Around the hill.
The old, old tree that whfl and sway,
The- criimbllng milt.
Tho drowsing fields where drifts of sjiqw.
The rambling lane.
Thj heart that thrills nl( qUKKly; so.
We're home again !
And old-time songs wo hall forgot
This Is our shame;
Hushed speech, ot friend who now ore
The ruddy flame
Of groat logs In the rirWnln&e th?re,
And sparks that fly;
The creak of nn old rocking chair', ,
A smile, a sigh.
To gate out through the frosted jian'o.
And trace the ways .
tWe rambled In the sun and ratn
In olden duys;
To hear the old gnto click, nnd all
The olden sounds;
To sit and silently reeull
Life's varied rounds.
To see the twilight creeping dotv.n
From, out the fky; .
To see the twinkling lights Of town'
To tart reply, '
To sec gray hair where none were, -then
And wrinkles, too - " .. " .
To think how has the world of men
Ho'.d ilfe'and you!
And to bo glad for iill,.of this, v
For. nit the glow
That lives to bless us from what Is
The long ngo '
To be glad that the walidptlng ways
O'er tend and foum
Have led us thrbtigh the circling daya
And brought us home! .
