Elections were held in all of the
states Tuesday for members of Con-
greHs, and in many of the States for U.
S. Senator, GovornoV and State House
Practically cotnplete returns received
op to last night indicate that the mem
bership of the Sixty-fourth Congress
will consist of 22'' Democrats, 196 Re
publicans, 7 Progressives, 1 Socialist,
and 1 Independent a Democratic ma-

The Senate will be composed of 53
Democrats, 39 Republicans, and 1 Pro
gressive—a Democratic majority of 13.
The reduction of the Democratic ma
jority in the House from Ml to 21, and
the consequent gains made by the Re
publicans, is attributed tn Hie abandon
ment of the Hull Moose party by Re
publicans who followed the leadership
of Roosevelt two years ago, and who
returned to their former allegiance,
thus bringing strong support to tho Re
publican ticket in Tuesday's elections.
The only notaolc victory for tho Dem
ocrats in any Southern Stale was the
defeat of Benj. W. Hooper, Republi

Considering the widespread demoral
ization incident to the European war,
and a spirit of discontent among the
largo army of unemployed in the East
and Middle West, not to speak of the
general business depression throughout
the country, it must ho admitted that,
the Democrats did remarkably woll to
retain control of Congress. With a
safe working majority in both House
and Senate the Administration will not
he hampered in the matter of legisla
tion during the remainder of President
Wilson’s term, and the party will be
enabled to go before the country with
a cleun State two years hence.
TUI! RESULT IN COWETA.
Although Tuesday’s contest in Cow-
etu brought out what was perhaps tho

crats uf the county in a general elec
tion, nearly all votes polled were given

only 94 out of a total of 110,3. The rival
candidates ran close together on their
respective tickets, Hardwick leading
Smith by only four votes on the
Democratic ticket, and McClure leading
Hutchens by two votes on the Bull Moose
All ten of the proposed amendments

majorities ranging from 333 to 10, upon

Aildressing an audience compostd of
stock-raisers from practically every
State in the Union at the National
Dairy Convention in Chicago the other
day, Secretary Houston, of the Depart
ment of Agriculture, declared the short
meat supply to he one of the most se
rious problems confronting American
agriculture. Mr. Houston approved
the plan of a at tie-raising on large
ranches. umjf eclarod that no effort
would he spared by the Federal Govern
ment in further increasing production
(310,000 pounds, and that the population
of the nation during this time had in-

Cedartown Standard: “Commissioner
Price is a practical man. He not only
pleads for diversified farming, hut
urges the building of warehouses lor
the grain that is going to be raised in
Georgia next year.”
If there is anything in had luck we
certainly are getting “what’s coming
tous.” We lost several bales of cot
ton in the warehouse fire here a couple
of weeks ago, and last week we suf
fered a further misfortune in the loss
of a valuable mule. These losses are
felt most keenly, and we hardly know
what to do. Parties to whom we are
indebted need their money, and we are
as anxious to pay as they are to collect,
but how to meet our obligations both
ers us mightly. We arc losing sleep
As the State seems prompt in paying
its teachers some of us thought per
haps that, in view of the hard times, no
district school tax would he levied this
year—hut, alas! such is not the case.
The sweet potato crop is the best in
years. The important question now is:
How should they be housed or banked
to prevent rotting? Caro should be
taken, in hanking, not to put to many
in a heap, nor put them up too warm.
The modern varieties do not keep as
well as the old-fashioned yam and
Spanish potatoes. The writer has made
a lino crop this season, and so have
others of our community.
Those who lost cotton in the Turin
warehouse fire know huw to sympa
thize with the unfortunates who suf
fered from like disasters Monday by
the destruction of the warehouses at
Gay and Alvaton. Watchmen should
ho on guard at all warehouses at this
season of the year. The average far
mer hasn't much to lose at best, and
when ho stores his cotton in a ware
house every means should he employed
to protect him against Iosr.
