. Portland Me. Sept. 11. The result
t ttj flection la this state Monday
when the Republican plurality for gov-
mor which usually approximates
!3000 wag reduced to about 8000.
rbllo at the same time the total vote
was greatly Increased over the fig-
ures of four years ago Is attributed by
Coin the Republican and Democratic
parties to the popular feeling over the
operation of prohibition liquor laws.
Although the Republicans re-elected
Governor Cobb and all four Congress-
men and have working control of
the legislature their pluralities were
so generally reduced aa to occasion
surprise In many quarters.
Doth Governor Cobb and Congress-
man Llttlefleld. In whose district the
most vigorous battle of the campaign
was wagMf axe of the opinion that the
Bturgls law providing for the en-
forcement of eitstlng prohibitory laws
by the state liquor deputies was the
leading factor In the results. The Dem-
ocrats made the resubmission of liquor
prohibitory amendments to the people
part of their platform while the Re-
publicans stood squarely for the en-
dorsement of the prohibitory plan and
strict enforcement. The result was
evident la the cities the Democrats
carrying all twenty-one municipalities
of the Bute with the exception of four
smaller ones. The votes la the country
districts however where the resub-
mission Id has never gained any no
ticaabU following more than offset
the Democratic gains la the cities.
la the Second congressional district
where 8arauel Gompers president of
the American Federation of Labor
conducted a vigorous campaign In an
endeavor to defeat Congressman Lit-
Ceneld. Mr. Llttlefleld's msjority was
reduced from that of four years ago
by several thousand votes. The con-
gressman attributes the result not to
the campaign against him. but to the
general sentiment regarding the Stur-

WHAT HEARST 6AIO.
Exact Meaning of the Address
Made Boforo Committee.
New York. Sept. 11 Owing to a
mlfinderstandlnc as to the exsrt
meaning of t!i address of VX IL
Hearst before the Independence
Leaxue State committee In regard to
fusion with the Democratic party that
league's press bureau announces that
Mr. Hearst spoke In part as follows:
Gentlemen: I am opposed of
course to this proposition that has
been submitted and It has been said
there was no one In this ball who fa-
sored It. If the Democratic party
completed Its primaries and elected
men who represented the rank and file
nd not the Ryan Belmont Interests
and assembled In convention and de-
clared for principle Identical with
curs and wished then to unite with us
and combine against a united opposi-
tion. I think we would be unwise to
refuse to consider an honest proposal.
I think this not because I am particu-
larly anxious to be elected governor by
any sacrifice of principles but do be-
lieve It due the people who followed
us and our supporters to be elected
something some time and put Into
practice and practical operations the
principles we stand for. not for our
benefit but for the benefit of the peo.
pie of this country and State. In
conclusion I want to say this: There
have been several references to a deal
here and I do not think anyone who
la suspected of entering Into a deal
should be a candidate for any office
before our convention."
