Over a Million Majority
Lead in Election.
New York, Dec. 15.—The total
popular vote of the presidential
candidates at the last national
election was made known today
in an official form by the tiling of
the last official vote, that of
Michigan. The total shows the
following votes cast:
Taft (rep.) 7,037,076; Bryan
(dem ) 6 393,182; Debs (soc )
448,471; Chafin (pro.) 241,252;
Hisgen (ind ) 83.180; Watson
(pop) 33,871; Gilhaus (social))
15,421. Total for all candidates
This grand total exceeds by
1,341,531 the total number of
votes cast in the presidential
election of 1904, when the grand
total was 13,510,708.
Compared with that election,
the candidates of the republican,
democratic and socialist party
increased their vote this year.
The reverse is true of the candi-
dates of the prohibition, populist
and socialist labor parties. The
independence party did not
figure in the presidential election
of four years ago.
The biggest difference in a
party vote is shown in an in-
crease for Bryan of 1,315,211
over the total vote cast in 1904,
for Alton B. Parker, the demo-
cratic candidate. Taft received
14,190 votes more than were poll-
ed for President Roosevelt in
1904, and Debs ran 45,308 ahead
of his predecessor on the social-
The heaviest loss is shown by
the populist party, who with the
same candidate registered 83,312
votes less this year than in 1904,
when their total vote was 117,183.
The prohibitionist candidate,
Chatin, ran 17,284 votes behind
the 19U4 mark of his party, and
Gilhaus, the socialist-labor candi
date, received only about 50 per
cent of the vote given to Corri
gan, which was 31,249 in the pre-
vious presidential race.
is Taft's all denominations in the city.
The Ladies Aid Society prepared
an elegant spread and the feeling
of good fellowship among the
guests was in keeping with the
spirit of progress that is helping
make Enid one of the best cities
of the state.
Among those taking a promin-
ent part at the banquet, who are
not strangers to Hennessey and
Kingfisher county were Rev. M.
Porter, Tipton Cox of Wichita
and Rev. J. E. Wagner. Rev
Porter was formerly pastor of
the Hennessey M. E. church,
and is loved and esteemed by all
the old-timers here. We well re
member that Rev. Porter was
almost rebellious when the con-
ference sent him to Enid instead
of retuaning him to Hennessey.
Time has proven the wisdom of
the annual conference in making
the change, as his pastorate of
uf the Enid church for several
years resulted in the building
up of a strong church there. It
was through his business
management and financial jud
ment that the church secured
the site where the present church
stands and which we understand
the church can dispose of for
the handsome sum of $12000,
which will be a good starter for
the new church.
The Enid Eagle tells of Tipton
Cox, also a former Hennessevite,
and now a wholesale dry goods
man of Wichita, in the following
Parents when selecting a school
for their son or daughter to at-
tend, or young men and women
depending upon their own judg
ment in the selection of a school,
should take into careful consid
eration the moral surroundings
in which they will be placed
while attending the school. The
Capital City Business College of
Guthrie, Okla., is located in a
moral city, and is opened each
morning with appropriate exer
cises lor the strengthening of
the moral character of every
student in attendance. Appro
priate lectures are made by peo-
ple, upon the importance of
honesty, truthfulness and fair
dealing, along with the knowledge
of Bookkeeping, Business Train
ing, Shorthand, and Typewrit
ing; lectures on manners, habits
and demands o? the best busi
ness offices are also given. These
morning exercises are made in
teresting, inspiring and en
couraging. They cause our
student body to determine to be
honest, to be upright, to be
broad minded, and above all,
ladies and gentlemen who will
make desirable citizens. A busi
ness education without the prop
er moral training is a failures
yet there is not another business
college in the state that spends
five minutes on the moral train-!
ing of its students.

ters of the various churches of
this city, also the leading busi-
ness men. Read our 108 page,]

particulars. It costs no more toi
place your son or daughter in a I
business college conducted along !
broad and progressive lines than
it does to place them in one that
is simply giving a smattering of
bookkeeping and shorthand with-
out any moral training on the
higher ideals of business life.
Cox Boosts for Enid
The Methodists of Enid are
planning for the erection of a
$50,000 church at Enid. Last
week the finance committee of
the First M. E church in Enid
gave a banquet to more than 250
representative business men of
A Neighborhood Visit.
Last Thursday neighbors and
friends of S. A. Parnell and wife
about eight miles east of town
came in about the noon hour
with dinner all cooked ready to
place on table. There were boxes,
baskets, dishpans and pails all
full of the very best Oklahoma
affords. The tables were set in
two different rooms and then
eating began. There was so
much talking and laughing it
sounded like a large flock of
geese had been turned loose.
They had a good time anyway,
and tried to eat all that was
brought there, but it was im
possible, and we think there was
enough left to last Mr. Parnell's
family several days. Those
present were Benton States and
