ELECTION IN MAINE
REPUBLICANS WIN BY GREATLY
, REDUCED PLURALITIES.
Intense interest In ContcBFTh Second
Congressional District Due to Cam
paign Conducted by Samuel Gompero
Portland, Me., Sept. 11. Governor
William T. Cobb, Republican, standing
on a platform devoted almost exclu
sively to a continuance of the pro-
tiililtnrv Imv nf llin stnto. WflH re
elected by a plurality of less than I
fc',000 votes, with but few exceptions
tho smallest margin of votes over .
given a Republican governor In Maine.
Cyrus Davis, the Democratic candi
date, for governor, polled one of tho
largest voles In the history of the
party In this state. Ills Issue In tho
campaign was the resubmission of the ,
liquor question, which was Incorpor-
ated in tho state constitution, lour
More interesting from a certain t
standpoint was the re-election of Con-
gressman Charles E. Littlclleld (Rep.)
of the Second district by a greatly re-'
tluced plurality. Congressman Little
field's candidacy was tho subject of
bitter opposition on the part of Sam- I
uel Gompers, president of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, who asked
for his defeat on tho grounds that ho
Lad voted against certain labor meas
ures at the last session of congress.
The issue between Gompers and Lit
tlclleld was taken up by the Repub
lican congressional committee and for
three weeks tho district has been tho
scene of a hard fight, where Secretary
of War Taft, Senator Lodge and Sen
ator Bcverldgo and several congress
men were pitted against the head of
tho Federation of Labor. Mr. Little
field's plurality is estimated at about
1,000. Congressman Edwin C. Bur
leigh, in the Third district, and Llew
elyn Powers in the Fourth were re
elected by 2,000 plurality. The re
election of Congressman Ames L.
Allen in the Fifth district is claimed
by tho Republican leaders.
Tho legislature will bo Republican
by a safe margin.
Returns from 450 cities and towns
out of 520 for governor are: Cobb,
(Rep.), 06,299; Davis (Dem.), 59,201.
Tho plurality in these towns four
years ago of Hill (Rep.) over Gould
(Dem.) was 25,374.
Returns for congressman from 100
of the 133 cities and towns in the Sec
ond district show a plurality for Con
gressman Llttleficld of 1,131, a net Re
publican loss of 4,100 over four years
ago. Tho vote: Llttleficld (Rep.),
17,321; McGllllcuddy (Dem.), 1G.187.
Of the twenty cities In tho state the
Republicans carried only Calais, East
port, Gardiner and Hallowed. Gov
ernor Cobb was saved by the country
Both Congressman Llttleficld and
Governor Cobb attribute tho almost
unprecedented slump In tho Repub
lican plurality to tho general dissatis
faction created by tho Sturgls bill
passed two years ago for the purpose
of enforcing tho prohibitory laws.

being made Into the expenditures of
the State university, evidently with a

to the increase in the assessed valua
tion of all property of the stale. Tho
friends of tho university will opposo
a reduction of the 1 mill levy on tho
ground that all of tho money appro
priated by tho legislature Is needed
and that If tho university is to retain
its place in the educational world It
must be liberally supported. It Is

What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the grcat kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the hack, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part o the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, ntid overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of tho most dis
tressing eases. If you need n medicine
you should have the best. Sold by drug
