! The voting machine is greatly
favored by Mr. Carter, who believes
I that it is only by the machine meth
I od that an absolutely fair election
I can be held. The Secretary meii
'tioned in this connection that it
cost the city of San Francisco $165,
,000 to insure fairness in an elec
. tion. The machine would reduce
this about seventy-five per cent,
, Up all last night, visiting the va
i rious polling places where the couni-
ing of the votes dragged along, Mr.
Carter has as yet had little or no
opportunity to form an opinion on
the manner in which the election
was conducted, as to its success
from a systematic standpoint, its
mistakes, imperfections and pos
sible causes of complaint. It is the
Secretary's impression, as far as he
has been able to gather, that the
election was as fair as careful pre
caution was able to make it.
When all results are carefully
considered and rejected ballots and
the causes of their rejection are
studied, much will doubtless be
learned to benefit future elections.
This morning Secretary Carter
received numerous cablegrams
from personal friends in New York
and other eastern sections, con
gratulating him 011 his appointment
to the Governorship.
Mr. Carter regretted that the re
turns seemed to indicate that many
voters had deserted the Republican
party. Although, in Oahu, a Re
publican victory lias been scored,
the triumph is not what it should
have been and majorities are small.

Evr'n Apple Tree.
A fruit supposed to bear the
mark of Eve's teeth is one of the
many botanical curiosities of Cey
lon. The tree on which it grows
is known by the significant name of
"the forbidden fruit," or "Eve's
apple tree." The blossom has a
pleasant scent, hut the really re
markable feature of the tree, the
one to which it owes its name, is
the fruit. It is beautiful and hangs
from the tree in a peculiar manner.
Orange on the outside and deep
crimson within, each fruit has the
appearance of having had a piece
bitten out of it. This fact, together
with its poisonous quality, led the
Mohammedans to represent it as
the forbidden fruit of the garden of
Eden and to warn men against its
noxious properties. Philadelphia

Salt Lake, Oct. 6. Advices re
ceived here state that a company
has just been formed in Buffalo, to
extract radium from the uranium
ores in Grand County, Utah, The
new company is said to own its de
posits which it proposes to work,
and while the exact location of the
property is not disclosed, it is pre
sumed to be the ground located by
Ogden men a year or two ago.
zt the head of the new company
is Stephen T. Lockwood of Buffalo,
who is reported to have met the '
prospectors while in Utah a year I
ago, and who on his advice sent
their ore to be tested. At the time
the prospectors thought the rock
was gold-bearing, but the assay re
turns failed to show a trace of that
metal. There was a heavy per
centage of uranium in the ore, how
ever, and Mr. Lockwood urged the
importance of the discovery upon
the prospectors and joined then, in
the location of the deposits.
