it is now the law of the land. It bene-
fits Civil and Mexican war widows
only. Widows now on the pension
roll or who may hereafter be placed
‘ thereon under the provisions of this
' bill who are 70 years of age are en-
titled to $20 per month. It raises the
! marriage limitations fifteen years or to
June 27, 1905, and restores to remar-
ried widows their former pensionable
status. - Therefore if you: married ‘a
| soldier before Jume 27, 1905, yeu are
entitled to $12 if under 70 and $20
if over 70. I expect to remain in
| Washington some days to look after
these claims. All beneficiaries should

and blanks, giving your husband's
name, company and regiment. Pen-
sion agents and attorneys are prohi-
bited from charging a fee for those
who are now om the pension rolls but
may charge $10 for original claims.
If you have an original claim and you
employ an attorney don’t send to

Maine Republicans Monday elected
a Governor, two United States Sen-
ators and four Representatives in
Congress, and wresting control of the
state house of representatives from
the Democrats, will be able on a
joint vote of the legislature to elect
the other state officers not chosen by

The Republican drift extended to
county officers, the greater number
of counties choosing Republican coun-
ty attorneys and Sheriffs.
The vote was heavy as had been ex-
pected, for the campaign had been
waged with a determination not seen
in recent years. The fight was partic-
,ularly hot for the two United States
Senatorships and for the four places
held by Maine in the lower house at
The Progressives, who two years
ago cast 18,226 votes, returned al-
most solidly to the Republican pecty
and helped to swell the majority of
Milkin, republican candidate for
Governor, to 13,000.
This is a strong indication that the-
whole county is awakening up to the
needs of the hour, and Mr. Huges will
be the next President.
