BITTER FIGHT DUE IF AGGIE
BOARD MEASURE CARRIED
Oklahoma City, Nov. 8.—With
members of the state board of agri-
culture contending that the vote
vould be very close, and first official
returns indicating an enormous vote,
"Yes," the result of Tuesday's bal-
loting on the Campbell Russell bill,
recalling the "aggie" board, was
very much in doubt.
Member O. A. Brewer of the
board claimed that a number of
counties had showed great majorities
for the board, but admitted that the
number of those who failed to vote
at all would determina thl fate of
the bill. The first county to report
its official returns to the state elec-
tion board—McClain county—gave
the\ bill 1663 votes, with 672 cast
against it There were 2268 cost in
the county, showing that all but 33
voters stamped the little separate
ballot.
The present membership of the
board already is campaigning for its
re-election in toto, but a bitter fight
is csrtain to be waged on many of
the present members.

Topeka, Nov. 8.—At noon today
both Hodges and Capper still claim-
ed the governorship of Kansas by
about 800 majority outside of the
mail vote. The mall vote will not
be known before night.
At Democratic headquarters It Is
announced the complete unofficial
returns give Hodges 371 plurality.
Members of the Democratic com-
mittee asserted 65 per cent of the
mail vote will be for Hodges.
The official count will be required
to decide the governorship of Kansas.
Capper and Hodges are running
close. On complete but unofficial
returns from all counties the figures
conflict in nine counties. The state
journal's tabulation gives Hodges,
12,312, Capper 11,808. The Kansas
City Star tabulation gives Capper the
lead by 641. Republican chairman
Dolley at one this afternoon placed
Capper's lead at 663. He asserted
the mail vote would not overcome
this.
W. L. Blessing left yesterday for
Chicago where he goes to repre-
sent the Locomotive Engineers of
this division at the national meet-
ing of the railroad arbitration board.
He will probably be absent some
weeks.

After Election
What?
The results of the election
perhaps are disappointing
to many and very satis-
factory to others.
Locally we are most con-
cerned in the solidity of our
Merchants, Bankers and
abundant crops. The pros-
perity of Shawnee and com-
munity depends principally
upon our own efforts, busi-
ness frugality and good
management.
This season has demon-
strated beyond doubt that
we live in one of the best
sections of the world. We
should be convinced that
better business methods on
part of Merchants, Bankers
and Farmers when smiled
upon by providence in fa-
vorable seasons will make
us abound in exceeding
grejt wealth and happiness
Leyond measure.
The greatest prosperity
will be accomplished only
when each individual shall
contribute by his own ef-
forts in securing greater
knowledge of his chosen oc-
cupation and putting into
practioe the knowledge gain-
ed.
L®t us believe in our-
selves, in Shawnee and com-
munity then the results of
the election will bring k>
us the greatest prosperity.
