The Democratic ward-heelers have

John Schrank, the would-be slayer j

The Charlotte Observer says all
the country needs now to make it

If the Democrats believe in State

swallowed a knife, the big blade of
the knife being open, and the fish
lived after the ordeal. This sounds
like some of the election returns.
Wonder how Wilson expects to
curb the trusts in the Nation when
apparently he decs not know how to
curb them In his own State? There
are more trusts In New Jersey than

Governor Woodrow Wilson refers
to the United Stales Senate as a
"citadel of private interests," declar
ing the people have not had posses
sion of that body for a generation.
That is a hard slap at the last Demo
cratic Senate, which was during this
generation. Does Governor Wilson

House of Commons Defeats Woman
London, Nov. 5. The suffrage
movement suffered a setback in the
House of Commons today when an
amendment providing for woman
suffrage which it was desired to in
clude in the home rule bill for Ire
land was defeated by 314 against
141 votes. The suffragettes declare
that they will retaliate by organizing
outbreaks in Ireland. As a protest
against the rejection of the amend
ment suffragettes went on a ram

They smashed many windows. Two
of them were arrested.
