evident tbat this Is Indeed a "Demo

clared and many Republicans ndnilt

election, In fact, was a tldnl wave, the
Democracy sweeping up and over the
Republican beach with gigantic bil
lows of ballots that submerged almost
every pivotal stronghold of the domi
nant party throughout the country.
There Is no doubt whatever now that
this Is the most extensive Democratic
landslide since that of 18011, which re
placed Grovcr Cleveland in tho presi

ment and gave him a Democratic
working majority In both branches of
While returns from n considerable
number of Isolated congressional dis

that the Democrats will have a ma

Special to The CITIZEN
Gouldsboro, Pa., Nov. 9. Fire de
stroyed the large dental factory on
Fourth street Tuesday afternoon.
The exact cause of tho fire which
started In a small unused room on
tho second floor is unknown.
Dr. Gustave Holtz, the owner of
the factory; Charles Otto Ulbrlch and
Max Bush were working in the main
room on the first floor and did not
discover the fire until the entire sec
ond floor was ablaze and partially
Dr. Holtz lost a large amount of
very valuable machinery, tools, den
lat chairs, dental tables, etc., and a
large number of articles not com
pleted; also his models and patterns
of his many patents,
to W. A. Tiger was In tho building
A large gasoline engine belonging
and is a complete loss.
Dr. Holtz very narrowly escaned
with his life while trying to save
some valuable finished work In a side
room. The door blew shut and lock
ed on the outside, making him a
prisoner in a blazing furnace. Had
it not been for the promt action of
Max Bush and Allen Reaser at the
risk of their own lives, he would havo
been burned to death In a very few
minutes. As it was he was severely
burned around his head, ears, neck
It Is thought that the snow on the
roofs Is all that saved the town from
ft very serious fire. The wind was
blowing hard and directly toward tho
heart of the town. Large pieces of
burning wood fell in the yards sev
eral blocks distant, while the snow
was black with cinders all over town,
for tho building burned very rapidly.
The fire was not discovered until af
ter two o'clock and at three the large
building was a mass of ruins.
C. P. Matthews' feed store Just
north, was saved by the wind blow
ing from that direction.
