November 5, 1910, at Roseburg, Ore.,
under act of March 3, 1879.
It may be late to record any elec
tion returns from last week over the
cmintry, but there was ho little of
real solace to those of us who cling
to the tradition or the good old.
days whn elections were held under
party colors, when opponents were
republicans and democrats, with
mostly republicans, that the news we
received today will come as a gleam
of hope, as a ray of light, in the
gloom that has enveloped us ever
ulnce the cataclysm of last November
enveloped our great party in state
and: national defeat. From old Ohio,
and from Napoleon at that, the very,
(Jibralter of democratic strongholds, I
where a republican stood as good c
chance of being elected afl the pro
verbial snowball does to exist, from
that most beautiful prosperous little
city east of the Rocky mountains
from this place of alt others comes
the news that rejuvenates, reinnplres,
the news of the complete turning of
the tables, and the election of practic
ally e cry republican candidate on the
regular republican ticket rrom street
commissioner to mayor, from board
if council to members of the board of
safety. Good old town on the good
old Muumec, yolir maple shaded
walks, your level streets and solid
llocks of prosperous business houses
are rtlll further endeared to the
memory of your sons who have stray
fid away to other Bcenes, by this
cheering news. And say, Mr. Voter, in
any party, don't it sound kind of
good to you to hear of an election
ngnln where party Is arrayed against
party? Is not one prone to ask how
mntiv better men hav been elected
under tho newer system than under
the old party alllgnmeut, how many
loss wenklings have been eliminated
from office holding, and how often
liavo stronger ones boon selected?
Will we not have with us Infinitely j
and for nil tima to come, great
masses of voters for whom iin or- j
Knnlzcd party convention could pick'
iwt stronger and botl r nen to rep-i
resent them? Is it not true that. I
"wny down In our inner consciousness,
the majority o ' in would prefer to go
down to defeat or to exult In victory
under the banners of an organization,
whether thnt woro Republican, Hem
ocratic or Independent?

ation is Sought.

Und Said to Ik Working to Secure

(Special to The Evening News.)
ent Wilson Is believed to now be
.working for some Bort of compromise
with liuerta and is said to recognize
no other way of preventing blood
shed. Intervention undoubtedly
means fighting, and fighting in which
Americans would be Involved. If the
embargo Is lifted or Carranzu's cause
recognized It might be that the Unit
ed States would avert a personal en
counter with Mexico but war to the
extermination of one or the other of
the factions In Mexico must follow.
Tho president wishes to avoid, It Is
(ttid, this final conclusion of the
struggle that now seems inevitable.
It is leurned that Und Is sounding
Huerta concerning a candidate for
provisional president of Mexico who
will bo acceptable to both Curranzu
and Huerta. If such a man can be
found negotiations for a truce will
begin immediately.
V Kit A CRUZ, Nov. 12. According
to dispatches received here the fed
