Though National'Republican Ticket is

man, Governor and County Officers-
Last Tuesday's election was no
doubt a landslide, with the democratic
party unmistakably at the bottom of
the rush when the returns are consid
ered in a general sense, but locally and
as far as the state is concerned, we
have everyfreason to rejoice. With the
election of Judge Westover for congress.
A. C. Shallenberger governor, the leg
islature and county officers democratic,
we see no reason why we may not hur
rah a little while the enemy is shouting
itself hoarse over the victory of their
Tuesday was an ideal day for the
great fight and both parties were in the
field early and late gathering in the 1
voters. All the highways and byways
were searched for him who possessed
the right to cast a vote and the result
was a heavy poll. It was evident
throughout the day that the democrats
were making the most vigorous cam.
paign and the. ballots proved this
when counted that evening. In the first
ward there were cast 392 ballots while
the second showed up with 293. In all
the precincts in the county the activity.
at the poll was so lively.
I Jie official count which v
pleted today shows that there were
1334 votes cast and W. J. Bryan re
ceived a majority of 84. Judge West
over made a phenomenal race, having
led his competitor, Kinkaid, by 261
votes. Eugene Burton, too, rau like
wild fire and Peter Jensen, candidate
. - 1 .-- . . . -
for commissioner, came out of the race
with a decided majority. Owing to the
fact that the vote was not counted till
a late hour today we give but the total
vote of each candidate in the comity,
and will publish the official vote in full
next week. Following is tho vote.

Married at Bridgeport
The marriage of Mr. J. H. Wehn, a
well known young man who formerly
lived in this city, is chronicled by the
Bridgeport News-Blade as follows:
"At the home of the groom's parents
in Bridgeport at high noon, on Wed-,
nesday, Uct. so, Mr, J. Herbert Wehn
and Miss Gertrude Hinman were united
in wedlock by the Rev, Geo. H. Wehn,
an uncle of the groom, who arrived
here the day nrevious.
The groom is a son of J. W. Wehn,
president of the Bridgeport bank, and
occupies the responsible position of
assistant cashier of that institution,
and the bride is also well and favor
ably known here and in Sidney, where
she resided before coming to Bridge
port. "Herb," as be is familiarly
known, is one of the most popular and
exemplary young men in this commun
ity, and the News-Blade joins with a
host of frieudi in extending its warmest
congratulations and hwt wishes to
himself and bride. May they safely
glide over life's troubled sea, and, as
J Governor-elect A. C. Schallenberger.
they approach the eventide, may they
be able to look along the backward
track and say in the words- of Grovcr
Cleveland that their wedded life "bad
been one glad sweot song."
The event was witnessed by f only
a few immediate relatives of the con
tracting parties, and at tho conclusion
of the ceremony all sat down to a
gumptious wedding dinner at the home
o-'the groom's parents.
'. After dinner the newly wedded pair
left by automobile for Lewellen, where
Mr; Wehn has charge of the bank, with
Garland Wehn, brother of the groonl,
acting as chaffeur, and there they will
make their future home.
Among the out of town guests were
Mrs. B. V, Reeves of. Guernsey, sister
oftho groom, and Mr. and Mrs. B. D.
Mils of Miuatare. Mrs. Mills is a sis
tetof the bride.
Rev. Jeffers Resigns
;: Pastorate of Church
' The announcement was made last
Sunday ly Rev. G. C. Jeffers of the
Baptist church that he would be com
pelled to resign his position within the
t;i fni- lm inmi nf his Remit Geneva.
N. Y. Tho motive for Mr. Jeffers'
unexpected move is the result of the
gradual decline in health of Mrs. Jef
fers and advice of her physician that a
lower altitude will prove beneficial,
. It is with keenest regret that wo
chronicle the near departure of Mr.
and Mrs. Jeffers, who have been resi
dents of this city for more than seven
years. Mr. Jeffers' church work is so
well known that words of praise are
inadequate and his parishoners will
always hold him and his estimible wife
in dearest remembrance.
Rev. J. H. Houston, we are advised,
will have charge of the parish work on
the retirement ot Rev. Jeffers and until
a permanent pastor is appointed.
A farewell reception will be tendered
Mr. and Mrs. leffers at the Baptist
church nfixt Tuesday evening at 8
o'clock at which the general public is

Return of the favorite at the Phelan
opera house Monday, Nov, y, This is
one of the popular plays Alliance
playergoers enjoy going to see. It is a
prime favorite and has never failed to
fill the house because it is the kind of a
play people want to see. The comedy
throughout is ol the bright and spark-
ling variety that brings forth genuine
laughter from those in the audience.
The drama is one with a strong plot
and is intensely interesting. Now that
the stage has been enlarged, the com
pany can use its metropolitan scenery
with the electrical stage effects and
the moonlight scene especially is said
to be beautiful. Music will be fur
nished by tho Alliance orchestra. Re
served seats can be had for 50 or 75
cents according to location in the
house. Gallery is 50 cents and child
ren 25 cents. People attending the
Missouri Girl will get the full worth of
