Twe Elections for Vare
Vare also made an unusual record
by his election n State Senater from
the First District te serve the 'unex

It is probable that Congressman Vare
will take part in the special Hesslen

The vote here en tbe amendment was :
Yes, 100,088; no, 80.101; the totals

The Deven Citizens' Association is
net satisfied with the investigation of
the "poison enke mystery" which caused
the death of W. W. Sterrett and the
Illness of his wife.
J. Cliften Buck, chairman of the
Citizens' Association, stated today he
favors the theory that Mr. Sterrett, nn
expert accountant, discovered a short
age in some one's account, and that re

Mr. Buck, who is associated with n

had done auditing work for that con

defalcations clsewhere, and that seme

"The Deven Citizens' Association is
net entirely satisfied with the investi

Fight Says Governer-Elect Has Great
- Future Ahead of Him
Gifferd Pinchot has been elected with
the entire Republican State ticket, as
was te be expected In a State that has
chosen a Democratic Governer only
three times in sixty years.
Tbe outcome was never In serious
doubt from the opening of the cam
paign and the first declaration of prin
ciples upon which Gilferd Pinchot made
bis appeal for support.
Early indications were that con
siderable apathy existed in the party
organization. This was dup largely te
tbe confusion and uncertainty that
arose as a result of Senater Penrose's
death, and the lack of individual and
distinctive leadership.
It was te be expected. Thr Republi

New Yerk, Nev. 8. Swept before 4
rising tide of Democratic victories Id
many States, the tremendous Republi
can majorities piled up In the Harding
landslide of two years age were knocked
right and left in yesterday's elections.
The Republican majorities in the
United States Senate and in the Heuse
of Representatives were sharply
reduced, but Republican manager
declared they would net be wiped out.
When twenty-five States bad corn
pleted their congressional returns'
neither Republicans nor Democrats had
progressed far toward control of the
Heuse. The vote then steed : Republi
cans, 185; Democrats, 187; Socialist
1. Iowa was the only State which has
returned a solid Republican delegation
Tbe vote earlier had steed with both
parties tie at 178 in the race for the
necessary 218 majority. It become
plain that the deciding votes were yet '
te come from the West and Middle

8enater Henry Cabet Ledge, Re
publican Administration lender in the
Senate, squeezed through in Massachu
setts with n plurality of 1045 votes in

today te count ngnlnst the inroads tha
Democrats made ih every State. VarN

responsible for the results.
When the tabulation giving each
major party 178 seats in the IIeuss)
was made, only twenty-one States hssl
made complete returns.

Wall Street Gives Ne Indication af

New Yerk, Nev. 8. (Ily A. P,)-
Early stock and bend market price
failed te give uny indication of Wall
street's attitude en the election results.
Opening pipes of standard issues
were generally lower, which ordinarily
might appear te construe the election
iih a "bear" argument, but the list
started moving upwurd later. It was
apparent that much of the early weak
ness was due te continuation of Men
