RETURNS FROM IDAHO.
Roosevelt Has Carried the State by
Special to The Tribune.
BOISE, Ida.. Nov. S. Returns from the
Stato are so Incomplete at 1:30 o'clock
that It Is Impossible to clve more than
a rough estimate of majorities. In every
part of the State both Roosevelt and '
Gooding ran far better than was antlcl- ',
paled by most observers. In this county .
It was expected that Roosevelt would got '
2000 plurality, but It seems likely at this ',
hour that the Ilgures will reach 2S0O. while
Gooding, for Governor, will hnvo 1S00 Tho '
entire county ticket Ib elected by plurall- !
ties rangln.1 from 1200 to 2000.
Thoro has apparently been a clean .
sweep In all parts of southern Idaho, and .
rreager returns Indicate a like result In .
tho north. From all that can now bo .
learned, tho Democrats have not carried .
a county In the State on tho Presidential .
tickot, though Cuater Is close. A rough .
estimate of majorities for Roosevelt In
the State, by counties, Is herewith glvon.
It Ib based on partial returns from twelve
of tho twenty-ono counties, and must bo
understood as merely an outline of the

On the same estimate Gooding should i

and was startled to find It alluded to
the death of his wife. Then she looked
nt the date and the postmark and dis
covered that It was ten years old.
The mystery of why It took ao long to
reach her has not been fully solved. As
sistant Pontmaster Charles Reese found
It on the counter with a number of for

could readily examine them.
He believes that the letter was taken

hand It to the postmaster, and laid it
upon the letters which were within
reach of any one.

BOMBARDING PORT ARTHUR.
Fall of Shells So Incessant That Rus
sians Abandon Repair "Work.
CHEFOO, Nov. 0, 12:30 p. m. The Ja
pancso continue to bombard Port Ar
thur and tho shells are" falling so Inces
santly that )ho Russians have, abandoned
the repair of tho works protecting the
Citizen volunteors and tho police arc
now reinforcing tho garrisons of the foils
according to the stories of Chinese ar
riving here, sixty of whom left Port Ar
thur on November 7, owing to tho high
price of food. , , , ,
So many men were killed on both sides
during the Inst assault that many bodies
lay unburlcd for days, and In somo in
stances dogs, which had been driven from
the town, assuaged their hunger by eat
ing tho dead. In a few cases where this
was seen the horror-stricken Russian
sharpshooters killed the dogs.
Some months ago tho JtUHSlan authori
ties ordered that nil dogs seen on the
struets rfhould be shot, with tho result
that half famished creatures have been
roaming tho hills, becoming savage.
The Chinese say that tho forts on Gold
en Hill havo dono no firing for months
past and it Is believed that their ammu
nition has run short.
The demolition of tho Chinese now
town Is almost complotcd, a thousand
hQiisos having been destroyed for tho
valuablo firewood they contained.
The town Is constantly catching on llro,
and tho majority of the warehouses and
stores belonging to foreigners havo been
burnt to tho ground.
