.Senator William Cameron Sprout,
of Delaware county, was yesterday
promoted from the Senate ol' Penn
sylvania, in which he served con-!
spicuouoly for more than two dee-t
cades, to the governorship of the 1
second state in the Union. His col
league, Senator Edward E. tleidle- ■
man, a native son of Dauphin county, !
was promoted from the presidency '
pro tem. of the upper house of the
State Legislature to the second office
of the commonwealth. Friends of
Senator Sprout believe that his ma- i
jority will be considerably in excess
of the more than 200,000 he received
nt the primary, and that Senator j
tieidleman's victory wilt go close to
the quarter of a million mark. The
rest of the Republican state ticket, I.
including the four Congressional pil
lars at large, was swept along by;
huge majorities, which also resulted J
in a Congressional gain for the Re- 1
publicans in Pennsylvania of three to ;
four members and a solidly Repub-.
lican Legislature.
Judge John W. Kephart, of Ebens-j
burg, has been promoted from the j
superior court to the supreme bench, |
leading a field of eight candidates.
Justice Alexander Simpson Jr., of
Philadelphia, who received a notable
vote in that city, was elected to the
full term of twenty-one years. Jus
tice E. J. Fox, of Easton, a guber- >
notorial appointee, and Charles B. ;
Lenahan. . of Wilkes-Barre, both
Democrats, ran next to the two Re-,
publicans elected. The Democrats
of Pennsylvania for the first time I
in the memory of living Voters will |
have no representation on the state's
highest bench after January,
Judge William David Porter, of j
Allegheny, was re-elected to the su
perior court by a handsome majority '
• ntirely befitting the splendid service j
he has given on the bench.
Rnnd Issue Carries
Indications front many districts:
throughout the state pointed to the
success of the sr>o,ooo,ooo road loan,'
which is in the form of an amend- j
menl to the Constitution of Pennsyl- j
vania authorizing that amount of j
bonds to he issued for road construe- !
tion. If the amendment is carried it!
is not the intention of Senator!
Sprout or the state's fiscal officers j
to have any bonds put out during the |
war. The unfairness of the fight j
against the loan by the state grange |
headquarters crowd and the McCor-;
mirk newspapers is shown by the:
fact that the state cannot issue bonds j
without approval of the Capital Is-1
oues Committee at Washington, i
which is controlled by Democrats. |
So far as returns show, the lonnj
ran close in very many rural districts j
and got a favorable vote in most of
the cities and larger boroughs, al-,
though everywhere voters neglected
to give it the attention it deserved.
The Philadelphia bond limit
amendment was probably defeated.
Nearby Congressional Flglits . j
The Congressional contests in this j
part of the state were marked by;
•lie defeat of every Democratic can-j
did ate having the support of Na
tional Chairman Vance C. McCor-!
inick. In his home district Mr. Mc-
Cormick failed to put up a candidate
in opposition to Congressman Aaron
S. Kreider, who got a fine vote of
confidence, notwithstanding the fact
that the President of the United
States personally addressed his fel

left for the western front."
Zurich, Nov. 6.—Emperor William's abdication has

serious differences have arisen between the Munich and

Ported to a realization of impending peril by the progress of
! the British southeast of Valenciennes and the French and Ameri
cans south of Sedan, Germany's shattered armies are in rapid
retreat from the Belgian border to the Aisne river. So rapid is
the retirement that it is very difficult to determine the exact
location of the contending forces along this 85 miles of front.
British forces have cleared the barrier of Mormal forest and
threaten to drive a wedge between Mons and Maubeuge. To
