NEW YORK, Nov. 7. —Uncertainty
as to the electoral choice of
California and Illinois, as de-'
veloped by belated returns
from both states, was the chief point
<■>? interest today, although the count
ing of ballots in several doubtful states
Btlll was under way.
: Illinois is safely in the Wil
son column was indicated early in the
evening, but California, which had
been claimed by the democrats shortly
after the closing of the polls, wavered
for a short time toward the progressive
ranks. The Wilson plurality, however,
early in the evening again started up
ward as returns came in from remote
precincts which are usually demo
cratic, and the Wilson lead seemei
s;.fe.
Roosevelt Loses 29 Votes
After apparently holding Illinois for
nearly 40 hours from the time the polls
closed. Colonel Roosevelt lost Its 29
electoral votes late in the day, when
the assembling of statewide returns
showed a victory for Governor Wilson.
Oα the strength of Incomplete re
turns as to the popular vote for Wil
eon. Roosevelt and Taft, the estimate
was made tonight that Governor Wil
■ob would not have a majority of all
the votes cast.
In many states the popular vote has
been only roughly estimated thus far;
but the reports indicate that the com
bined vote pf Roosevelt and Taft will
he approximately one million more than
Dip vote for Wilson.

SKIPPER FINDS
FORTUNE AFLOAT
Grease Gathered From Bosom of
Ocean Proves Ambergris
Valued at $50,000
Here is a $50,000 fleh story that the
liner Ventura brought yesterday from
Samoa. Among south sea traders none
ii better known than Captain Allan,
owner and master of the fleet footed
schooner Dawn. The captain Iβ an en
thusiastic deep sea fisherman and Iβ In
the habit of going far out to sea in a
small boat to fish.
Hβ went out a few weeks ago. The
boat drifted through a mass of yel
low, greasy looking stuff that gave
forth an odor so strong that It was
too much for the stomachs of the na
tive rowers. They were pulling away
from the offensive stuff, when it oc
curred to Captain Allan that it might
be ambergris, which is highly valued
in perfumery.
He returned to his schooner, in
which he sailed out to where he had
seen the odorous grease. A closer in
vestigation satisfied him that it prob
ably was ambergris and he gathered
about 2,000 pounds of the stuff, which
he stowed away in five gallon oil cans.
He submitted a sample of his find to
a German chem*t in Samoa, who pro
nounced it ambergris and valued the
skippers find at $50,000. Kews of the
worth of the* yellow grease spread over
the island and in schooners and uanoes
half the population started out in
search of it. A storm had scattered
the original bulk, but many of the
searchers found chunks of the precious
grease and more of it was picked up on
nearby islands.
Captain Allan h*is shipped his find
to Germany, and wtl <"n the returns
come back he is going to have the
finest power schooner in the south seas
and is going to spend a year hunting
for more of the same kind of treasure.
