Portlad. Me., Sept. 13.— Late re

day’s state election only emphasized
the extent of the Democratic victory.

Augusta, to the Governorship by
about 8500 plurality over Governor
Bert M. Fernald, of Portland, choos

Third Districts and a good majority

Complete rerurns give Asher 0 .
Hinds, Republican, a plurality ol
734 in the First District- A recount
may be held.
Governor Fernald carried but
three of the 20 cities in the state.
With 21 out of 31 State Senators
and 86 out of 151 Representatives,
the Democrats control both branch
es of the Legislatuae and are within
15 votes of a two-thi:ds majority in
joint convention. The Republicans
have elected 63 Representatives.
Four districts remain to be heard
from. Control of tbe legislature is
of more importance than in some
of the other states, under the con

With the Legislature captuied by
the Democrats it probably will

ple of the vexed prohibitory liquor
law and a choice for local option in
the sale of intoxicating liquors. The
Sturgis act, which has proved so
obnoxious to many and was de
nounced in Ihe Democratic party
platform, can be repealed. Certain
ly the act can be made inoperative
by Plaistod withdrawing the pres

appoint their successors.
Such a legislature can also choose

The Dew road which extends fr< m
Allegany to Scottsburg has been
completed. Work on thib road has
been in progress for over a year and
the road in places was built with
In some places it
was necessary to blast through rock.
Formerly there was only a trail from
the Allegany road across the moun
tains to Loon Lake and Scottsburg,
Tbe trail has been oonverted into a
good wagon road and it makes a
short cut out of tbe Coos Bay coun
try. The owners of the auto line
on the Drain route are planning to
put two autos on the new road next
Passengers can be taken
from here to Allegany and the new
road is the shortest cut to tbe rail,
Not only will the new road make
a good route out of Coos Bay, but it
will be of vast benefit to many ranch
In the Loon Lake country
there is fine farming land, but here
tofore it wag only reached by a trail
and the farmers had no ineanB of
getting their produce to market.
The road puts all those farms in
close touch with the markets and
Capt. C. E- Edwards of Allegany,
who has long been advocating tbe
construction of the road, is greatly
pleased over its completion as it
opens up tbe lich Loon Lake coun
try to Coos Bay. Capt. Edwards is
now desirous of having a road built
from Loon Lake to Elkton, a dis
tance of eleven miles. This road
would reduce the distance between
Allegany and Drain to fifty-three
miles, thirteen miles less than the
the route favor it and will probably
vote a tax for its construction and
also petition the Douglas county
commissioners to make an appro
priation for it.— Coos Bay Times.
