McKlnloy Has a cioar Plurality of
Columbus, O., Nov. 15. The conton
iion of tho betters who took the Bryan
end of tho bet that McKinley would
not get 50,000 plurality, that they have
won, because, if the Barrvote is count
ed, McKinley's plurality is under 50,
000, is pronounced by Secretary of
State Taylor to b3 a very flimsy ex
cuse, no said:
"In presidential elections a plurality
always means tho plurality of one elec
toral ticket over another. Strictly
speaking1, McKinley had no plurality
at all, for neither ho nor Bryan were
"Tho plurality of 51,109 which Mack,
the first elector on tho Republican
ticket, received over Powell, the first
elector on the Democratic ticket, will
bo recorded in my report as McKinley's
plurality, just as has always been done.
In fact, most of the men who voted for
Barr yoted also for tho Democratic
electors. If his voto were counted
with that of the Democratic electors,
it would be equivalent to haying twenty-four
electors on the Democratic

THE RIBBON SASH.
lie Killed a Woman m Nhp County, Call
fornln. From tho San Francisco Examiner
we clip tho following concerning tho
trial of William M. Roc, of Elk Town
ship, Noblo county, who is on trial in
Napa county, Cal., for murder:
During tho examination of Jurors,
Roe, tho prisoner, tilted back in his
arm-chair, his feot on tho rounds of a
chair. Ho displayed an ordinary In
terest In the proceedings and smiled
easily enough at incidents which mado
others smile. His facial expression at
all times suggested a sneer, eyen.whon
ho seemed amused.
In appearunco the confessed murder
er is thirty-six or thirtyseyen years
old. Ills forehead wrinkles with his
changing thoughts, but seemingly not
from the dopth of the thinking. The
lines about his largo but thin nose,
about his steel-blue eyasiye eyes, and
at tho sides of his mouth, form and
disappear as readily and make his face
a continual study. There is intelli
gence sharpness, rather in tho face
Tho man would bo fairly good-looking
If there wero not somothlng mean in
his looks. When ho smiles ho looks
just as mean as when he doesn't His
complexion is dark, his hair dark
brown; his mustache tinges from
brown to red at the ends.
Tho most noticeable habit of the
prisoner as ho swayed back and forth
in his blue coat, negligee shirt' and
cotton tie of white and black checks,
was a continual nervous picking of his
fingers. Ho held his hands together at
his knees and tho indication of his
nervousness never ceased.
Roe's defense will undoubtedly be in
the line of insanity, for he is no longer
boasting of his guilt. He has given
his case oyer to the lawyers and his
adopted plan is to repudiate his con
fession on tho ground that ho merely
mado the statements because ho want
ed to die and expected that tho people
of Napa would take him out of jail and
The crime for which he is boing tried
was the killing of a woman by poison
ing her, in 1891. Tho victim was the
wife of a man named Greenwood, with
whom he had had trouble.

New York. In conversation recently
n physician of some eminence deplored
tho decline of sleeves. Balloons, he
maintained, contributed to buoyancy of
disposition. Nervously prostrated pa
tients would find mental depression re
sulting nt onco from the pricking of the
bright bubbles about their arms. Lot
him control tho fashions of women and
he would control their nerves.
That doctor was wise, but there is
greater wisdom. And omen possess It;
or the Instinct which lends to the samo
goal. Clip the sleevo wings upon whloli
they rise above earth's troubles, and
they have no time to lament tho bruises
of a tumble, for, since one must walk,
shall one's neighbor get ahead in tho
Kprnmblc for embroldci ed stockings and
new shoes? And flying is so disagree
able when walking is the style. Big
sleeves would give any woman nervous
prostration when smnll sleeves nro the
And so turn wo in better spirits than
usual from docked sleeves to ocrgrown
muffs and hats that soar Into heaven.
Slzo is maintained always somewhere.
Would it not bo a joko upon the doctor
If it wcro maintained in crinoline?
Hoopsldrts would make a woman buoy
ant enough in all conscience to set tho
physician quite at ease about her nerves.
And the exchange is not so impossible.
Since. Sarah Bernhardt has staged
"Camllle" with the dress of the time
when it was written, everybody French
is talking starch and hoops, and it ii
never a long step from the stngo to tho
drawing-room. Already wo have scut
tle bonnets for young girls. To bo sure
they are small, not to obscure the fresh
faces too much, and to bo sure they are
dainty things of gray, or violet, velvet
with lace ruchlngs and strings. But
scuttle they are, and scuttles and starch
are closely associated.
But we're not yet so nearly up to date
in our fashions as the crinoline of the
second empire. Tho before-mentioned
high hats and(overgrown muffs go back,
like most of this season's novelties, to
collar rolled back from tho face show
Inlr knots of velvet and laco against the
.skin. Velvet bows with Inco endn were
perched upon the shoulders. The capctf
girl had a muff, a big lmggy Mnrle An
toinette muff of ermine and velvet,
trimmed with bows.
The season Is ycl young for evening
gowns, but from present indications
Marie Antoinette model havo the
strongest following. Taffetas, moires,
corded silks and satins In pale primrose
tlnite, rose tones, sliver nnd blue nro
prominently displayed. Pink and gray
Is n favorite combination. Black laco
over white Is being1 mado up extensively.
A beautiful dress just completed for one
of the first functions of the season is
of pale yellow satin, veiled as to both
pklrt and bodlco with tulle. A thick
ruche of Russian violets finishes tho
hem, and clusters of violets catch the
draperies hero nnd there. Tho bodlco is
strikingly effective, with its narrow
puffings of tulle from decollctngo to
waist while the sleeves arc looso puffs of
tulle In which violet clusters nestle. A
gown of qullo pronounced Louis XVI.
stvlo Is of flowered taffeta In white and
roso color. It Is mntlc wltti a tnoner
front of creamy laco ruffles, nnd has n
stomacher front, 'long and pointed, of
taffeta and lace, with a tiny ruche nt tho
meek. A gown of stately brocade, whlcn
yet Is designed for a youthful figure, Ib
of roso pink satin figured with silvery
white roses and serpentine lines. The
bodlco as arranged In closo fonliko
gathers at tho waist, and Is sashed with
pink ribbon tied nt one side in a full
bow, Into tho knot of which is tucked a
handful of roses. A bertha of mousse

caught up in festoons by clusters of
loses. Tho short sleeves are cascades
The indispensable tea gown is always
tho same, save that like a beautiful
woman, It adds careful touches to renew
its charm as tho years of its reign wear
on. The trained princess effect, the
Watteau plait and the Empire effect all
continue in vogue. A graceful Watteau
design recently on exhibition was car
ried out in a delicate blue spotted gauze
veiling blue silk. It was cut low and
square in the neck, with bands of black
satin to finish the decollotage. It had
black satin sleeves, puffed nt the shoul

lace frills. It wns a fitted gown in spite
of its Watteau folds, and with its

It Will lie Seen on Street Gonna as Well
as Evening Ones.
The wide ilbbon sash is to be worn
generally again this autumn, nnd our
modistes ha o arranged that they shall
T)C a part of the street costumes no less
'than for evening gowns. A number of
aiew features, however, will be intro
duced. Iland-painted sashes and snshes
with fringed ends will be seen, also those
having the ends finished with an edg
ing of feathers. Many debutantes will
wear w 1th their party gowns sashes of
filmy tulle. These sashes, when tied in
a big bow at the back, will give a delight
fully airy touch to a costume. One way
of wearing the sash will be to have it
form part of the bodice, being tied in a
bow on the left shoulder. Another new
way is to let It start from the back and
be drawn over the corsage, much like a
very short bolero. Ilight in the front it
lies in a bow, with full loops and long
ends. When the sash is worn around the
waist it is very broad in front, tying at
the back in small loops, with long ends.
This is one of the favorite ways in which
the sash is worn in Paris. Colors which
promise to be most in favor are the new
red shades. A cherry pink is one of the
latest exquisite colors, also a soft,
brownish cherry. Any of the new red
shades in the changeable glace ribbon,
with the black edge, ere most effective.
Also all the varying tints of violet nnd
mauve will be fashionable. Tor street
costumes the newest sash is of black
satin, about eight Inches wide. It looks
much like a corselet in front, fastening
with two small bows. In the back it
fits the flgure, and is trimmed with t-vo
rows of buttons, which give it tho np
pearancc of fastening by means of tho
buttons. This corselet sash is high in
favor with French couturleres. Phlla

At Newport, four or five miles above
Waycrly, Snakard & Co. got a good
shallow well last week, which opensup
n new pool. It is on the 'Atkinson
farm, and tho oil was found in a stray
Cow run sand. Its initial production
was close to 100 barrels a day, and on
the strength of this a number of new
wells will start soon.
The Octagon Oil Company and Way
erly parties will complete a shallow
well across the river from the town
Tuesday of this week. It is going to
the second Cow run sand, with good
prospects of success, as wells havo come
in since they started on both sides of
their lease. A remarkable thing about
this well was that they found oil at tho
depth of SO feet from the surface. It
was a mere showing and, of course,
could not bo operated. It is a heavy
lubricating quality. At a depth of 310
feet they encountered a rather strong
gas pressure for such a shallow dopth.
The Belmont Oil Company, composed
of Wheeling and Bridgeport parties,
have secured a block of leases in the
shallow field back of St. Marys,- and
are drilling a well which should be in
by the middle of the week.
In the old Cooper shallow field Lat
shaw & Co. last week completed a well
on the Wm. Ingram farm, which start
ed off nicely. It was put to pumping
yesterday morning and in the first six
hours put eight barrels in the tank. It
is located between the old Cooper field
and the Plum Run development and
may start some new work. Latshaw
& Co. will put down two new wells on
the same lease.
A remarkable thing has been noticed
in the Cooper production within the
last few weeks. The production of
five wells owned by one company had
decreased to 10 barrels a day. Without
any agitation they began increasing
and are still continuing to increase at
tho rato of two or tbrco barrels each
day. Tho production of tho five wolls
Friday was something oyer 40 barrels.
Tho other wells in tho field aro report
ed to have shown slight Increases.

the Mario Antoinette period. As the
days go on and the church steeples, and
thehotel-ploitcd napkins get eliminated
from millinery, the new things thatare
also good things get a chance of notice
and appreciation. Ono of tho smartest
and at tho samo time lca&t exaggerated
models turned out by a Fifth avenue
establishment has a high stovepipe
crown. Now stoepipes are not grace
ful, but they offend tho eyo less than
cones. To be inoffensive is tho most
one can exact of this season's millinery.
The hat described is of black eh et with
a flounce of renaissance laco encircling
the crown and resting upon the broad
brim. A bunch of yellow i oses touched
with pink lies on the right side of tho
brim, while another bunch is tucked
in beneath on the left side above the
hair. A great cluster of plumes gives
the esprit sought in nil hat tiimming.
