G. O. P. Maine Elects
Rock-ribbed republican Maine ap
pears to have deserted its former pol
itical moorings by going democratic
with a bang. Monday’s election
seems to have elevated a democrat to
the governor’s chair and sent two out
of three democrats to congress. Louis
J. Brann, democrat, defeated Bur
leigh Martin, republican, for gover
nor with the close majority of 1,387
votes out of 632 precincts being re
ported. The vote stood as follows:
Brann (D.) 118,789; Martin (R.)
117,402, Republican congressman,
Carroll L. Beady, appeared to have an
edge of 2,2JO votes over, his Demo
cratic opponent, Joseph -E. F. Con
nolly. Beady represents the first dis
trict. In the second district, E. Carl
Moran, Jr., democrat, defeated John
E. Nelson. With only ten precincts
not reported Moran received 41,79 J.
votes; Nelson 39,374. In the third
district, John G. Utterback, demo
crat, defeated former Governor Ral
ph O. Brewster. . With 21 precincts
missing, ,Utterback (D.) received
34,386 votes; Brewster, 33,238.
If there is any merit in the old pol
itical slogan, "As goes Maine, so goes
the nation,” it looks like a democra
tic president in November. The fol
lowing returns in recent gubernator
ial races may serve as an index to
those who like to speculate on com

Clears Up Sluggish,
“I have used Thedford’s Black
Draught for constipation for a
long time, and find it gives relief
for this trouble,” writes Mrs.
Frank Champion, of Wynne, Ark.
“I think it is good for spells
caused from gas on the stomach.
If I get up in the morning feeling
dull and sluggish, a dose of Black
Draught taken three times a day
will cause the feeling to pass away,
and in a day or two I feel like a
new person. After many years of
use we would not exchange Black
Draught for any medicine.”
