markable day after election" on re?
cord in this city. Then- was actually a
dearth of the usual political gossip and
conjecture. Men talked business dis?
cussed religion, theorized regarding the
Teresa, argued abstractions and other
wise conducted themselves in a most
unusually usual manner. Occasionally
one would hear something about the
election, but. as a rule, it came from
those individuals who lived in a polit?
ical atmosphere and timid not exist
happily outside "f it.
But, withal, there was reason for this
apparent lack ..f interest. Locally,
everything turned out exactly as every
nne knew it would. The result had beeil
discussed so lung and so often before it
was a result, that there was nthing left I
to talk about when it all happened. The
return of Billy Young to Congress was
the most matter-of-fact piece of busi- j
ness that the voters of the Second dis?
trict ever politically did.
In the ease ,,f Now York, the election
of Roosevelt was conceded early in the

the local situation, and that is that all j

jubilant because they practically I

that Young has a safe majority over

Fac ts About Newport News Bakery and
The modern bakery, confectionery
store, candy manufactory and ice cream
plant of the Newport News Bakery and
Confectionery Company, at the corner
of Thirty-first street and Washington
avenue, is a business establishment that
is a credit to Newport News. The
company begani business here in
March, 1897, in the Finch building, on
Washington avenue, between Thir?
tieth and Thirty-first streets. Its
trade increased so rapidly that these
quarters soon became inadequate, and,
on July 15. 1S9S. the company moved its
stock ami equipment to the handsome
new three-story brick building at the
corner of Thirty-first street. The
building was constructed specially for
the concern and is admirably adapted
for its purposes. A gentleman who was
conducted through the establishment
yesterday afternoon was impresesd with
its fine facilities. The lower floor, or
basement, is set apart for the ice cream
department, which has a capacity of
200 gallons of cream a day. The cream
is made for the wholesale and retail
trade, and in the summer is handled
by all the leading druggists of New?
port News at their soda fountains.
On the next floor, above the ice cream
department, is located the bakery.
This is equipped with an immense brick
oven, having a capacity of ?.000 loaves
of bread a day. A large force of skill?
ed hands is kept continually 'busy, night
and day. in this department. These men
make tons of the genuine Vienna bread,
which is enjoyed in so many of the
homes in Newport News. On the same
floor, fronting on Washington avenue,
are the ice cream parlors and confec?
tionery store of the company, which
is the largest in the city. Every variety
of the choicest candy and pastry, made
fresh every day, is kept in this de?
On the third floor, above the bakery,
is the candy manufactory. This has a
capacity of 1,000 pounds of candy a day.
The home-mad? candies and poam-t
brittle manufactured by the company
have a large sale. They are made fresh
every day and their llavor would tickle
the palate of the most fastidious epi?
cure. The candy manufactured by the
company is sold in large quantities to
dealers in and out of Newport News.
One noticeable feature about the en?
tire establishment is the perfect clean?
liness of every branch and every utensil
used. Mr. C. F. W. Bornmann, the pro?
prietor, is an expert baker of twenty
years' experience, and gives his per?
sonal attention to the various depart?
ments of the business.
Either large or small orders arc de?
livered to any part of the city by the
company's wagons, which are in charge
of polite and courteous drivers,

NEW YORK. Nov. 9.?The latest fig?
ures obtainable show that Roosevelt's
plurality in the State is not far from
20,000. Only ten counties in the State
gave Van Wyck pluralities and they
were all localities swayed by cities, as
Now York, Kings. Queens and Erie.
The falling off in Roosevelt's plurality,
as compared with Black's in 1S9G, is due
lo a decrease in the Republican vote
up the State of 61,000 and in Greater
New York of 62.000. Against this Van
Wyck gained 21.00? above the Harlem,
and 53,000 below it. as compared witii
Porter two years ago. In that year
the Democrats carried only one county
?Schoharie?which gave Porter 412
plurality. This year it gave Van Wyck
728. The result on Congressmen in
this State seems to have been a sur?
prise to even the Democrats them
'selves. Nineteen of their candidates
were leeted. the Republicans getting
but fifteen. In the present House the
New York delegation stands 27 Repub?
licans to I'' Democrats.
GREATER NEW YORK.
In Greater New York all the Demo?
cratic candidates were elected, the
most noteworthy change being the de?

PAT! IS. Nov. 9.?The American and
Spanish Peace Commissioners held an
hour's joint session this afternoon.
When the meeting opened the Ameri?
cans presented to their Spanish col?
leagues the answer of the United Slates
to the claims .submitted on Friday last
in behalf of Spain. The document in
which ihe American answer was set
forth eonsist.-.l of nearly fifty sheets of
I typewritten maller. Il was a refutation
of the Spanish allegation that because
the words "possession." "ownership" or
"cession" do not occur in the protocol
.-lause touching upon the Philippine Is?
lands, the peace commissioners have no
right lo discuss them here, and that

money and ciisi.s collections taken by
'lie United States ollicials since Ihe ca

of Tuesday would have I.n submitted
to the Spaniards al 4 P. M. yesterday
had it not l.e. ti that the commissioners

I are surprised that the Spaniards made
unalterable engagements for 4 o'clock
in view of the fact that the meeting,
had it occurred. might have extended,

The Americans commissioners held
that there was justification, under the
terms of the protocol, for the discussion
