This company, scenting an advertise

immediately wrote to the secretary of
tho Princess to tho effect tlmt If a claim
was made for the loss of tho Jewelry It
would be honored forthwith.
The secretary replied that It was not
Intended to make any claim. It Is now
learned that the Jewelry was false, the
only genuine part being the gold mount
Iiiks, which were slight nnd not worth
more than $400. This Is thought to ex

The bag was stolen whllo the train

A former Common Council accepted

A compromise was reached yesterday
between tho Taft anil Roosevelt forces

will ngrco that tho Ponrofco plan to nomt

is actually the Republican State ticket, but
when Fllnn went over to Roosevelt and
claimed tho majority of the electoral
ticket Penrose proposed to Taft's repre
sentatives tho advisability of running a
Stnto tiekot of his own, with a viow to
defeating the Fllnn ticket.
Apparently Roosevelt did not look
calmly uou this method of retaliation,
which while It might not end in the elec

Ninio tlmo carry sufficient strength with
it to turn tho State Government over to

nf the Gubernatorial primary Is In

returns give .Judge Ira II. .Jones a slight
lead oer Gov. Cole L. Ulease, candidate
for a second term.
At 10 o'clock, with nbout 40,000 votes
reported about 35 per cent, of tho esti
mated total Jones had a lead of 2,300.
The lllcasc peopln are confident. They
say the country districts where llleasc
was expected to poll a large vote have
not yet reported.
J. T. Duncan, the third candidate for
Governor, has received only a small
vole, but It may be enough, with Ulease
and Jones running neck and neck, to
foccn them Into a second primary, as

color lino question In that it pasted a
compromise resolution requiring local
organizations to state whether or not a
future twididato for membership is a
negro. This was freely admitted to w
a compromise In which Attorney-General
Wickersharn, former Secretary of War
John M. Dickinson and several other lead
ing lights of tho profession joined.
Sentiment in the association indicated
that now it has beuti decided that LewU
and tho other negroes were legally ad

that thn negroos will prohably qtiletly
and unobtrusively resign, thus solvlng
thi! entire problem.
Judge Dickinson, in offering the com
promise, said that in view of the fact that
tho question was a dellonto one lie would
ad v Ire the body to pat-s tho resolution
without discussion. A call for question
arose and in spito or an uproar the chair
man put the question to a voto.
