Progressive parties favored a policy of
protection, therefore, the country had

Democrats May Carry the

San Francisco. CaL, Nov. 9. Out of a
nuie of uncertainty an entire new tab
ulation, based upon corrected returns
from virtually all county seats, devel
oped these facts:
Roosevelt has a plurality of the pop
ular vote over Wilson that the few re
mote precincts unreported are not like
ly to overturn.
Not all of the Roosevelt electors,
however, may have won. The name of
lieutenant governor Albert J. Wallace,
which, headed his electoral ticket, was
scratched by many voters, presumably
because of his course in commuting the
death sentences of murderers while
The wide discrepancy in the com
plete returns from Los Angeles county,
as compared with the earlier returns a
change that wiped out an apparent lead
of approximately 6000 votes for Wilson
in the state was due in part to a
switch in the method of tallying the
populafl- vote. At the outset, the record
was made up from the vote cast for the
head of eacn electoral ticket. Later,
when it became apparent that many
Progressives had not voted for Wal
lace, the first Roosevelt elector. Pro
gressive leaders demanded of the coun
ty clerk a recbunt in which a vote cast
for any elector in the Progressive col
umn was tallied as a vote for Roosevelt.
The final disposition of California's
13 electoral vo.tes may be decided by
the courts. Democratic managers, in
the announcement of their determina
tion to challenge the Los Angeles coun
ty vote in the event of a Roosevelt vic
tory on the formal count, declared their
action based not only on the alleged
counting 'of Progressive ballots invali
dated by pencil scratches, bet on al
leged errors and irregularities of Re
publican judges of election in exclud
ing valid Democratic ballots.

Albuquerque. N. M., Nov. 9. With
returns from the state practically com
plete, the vote cast for presidential
electors in the state totalled 43,812,
considerably larger than had been ex
pected. The vote was as follows: Wil
son. 17,982; Taft, 15,512; Roosevelt,
7988; Debs, 2024; Chafin. 300.
The precincts yet to be heard from
will not make any appreciable change
in these figures.
Late returns show that the $500,000
bond issue for state roads carried! by a
majority in excess of 2000, while- the
constitutional amendment repealing the
language qualification clause, prohibit
ing those unable to read, speak and
write English from holding state of

probably less than 8.000

Paris Receives Report That
Buildings at Constantino-J
pie Are Set on Fire.
Paris, France, Nov. 9. Serious dis
orders are reported to have broken out
in Constantinople where Kurd soldiers
are killing Christians in the GahUa
quarter, according to a special dis
patch from Bucharest, Roumania, pub
lished by the Paris Midi under reserve
Some buildings of the Turkish capital
are said to have been set on fire. '
The banks and foreign embassies are
guarded by detachments of Turkish
troops who are still obedient to disci
pline. Ghazi Ahmet Muktar Pasha, the vet
eran victor of Kars in the Russo-Turk-ish
war of 1ST7 and a former grand
vizier, explained the Turkish defeats.
"The young Turks have ruined all our
army. Formerly part of the officers
came from the ranks and the remainder
from the military schools. The young
Turks did not like that system. They
began by pensioning or finding other
situations for the men who had. risen
from the ranks and replacing them by
youngsters from the military academy.
During three years about 1500 joined
in this way, but all of them were too
y ung and ine tnwienced.
"Our battalions of infantry, which are
S00 strong, had only seven officers ex
perienced at the outbreak of the war.
What could you expect our soldiers to
do without officers and without food,
for we have no commissary depart
ment. They could do only one thing.
"Neither I nor the sultan will ever
abandon Constantinople. My sovereign
will await death in his palace; I in ray
office." Thus Kiamil Pasha, grand
vizier of Turkey, has addressed the
ambassadors of the powers.
Kiamil Pasha informed the ambas
sadors in Constantinople that he 'would
maintain order there until the end. ac
cording to a dispatch to the Matin to
day. If, however, tbe Turkish capital
should be occupied by the invaders, the
grand vizier declares that he could not
be answerable for what the exaspera
tion of the population might lead to.
Anything that might happen then would
be on the conscience of Europe, he said.

McManigal testified he met Frank M.

Plctare In Rogue Gallery.
"I enclose the photograph which I
took from the gallery." That was the
way Edward Smythe, secretary of an
iron workers' union at Peoria. 111., sent
to the union's international headquar
ters at Indianapolis a photograph of
Herbert S Hockin. member of the ex
ecutive board which had been taken
from the rogues' gallery in the police
department, according to letters pro
duced by the government.
John J. McNamara'! reply to Smythe
as read was:
"That was not the way to send that
photographs of members of the execu
tive board In the rogues gallery put
them in- a separate envelope and mark
personal. President Ryan was pres
ent when your letter came and I told
him he had a fine executive board.'
Hockin. accused by Ortie McMani
gal as the directot- of the flying squad
ron of dynamiters, and now successor
to McNamara. was said by the gov
ernment to have been photographed
in Detroit where he formerly lived.
Caatlened Men to Be CarefHl.
After the loss of life at the Los An
geles explosion and during the six
months before the arrest of the dyna
miters, McNamara wrote letters to
members of the union cautioning them
to be "careful" as to the kind of let
ters they sent to headquarters, it was
charged in connection Vith the read
ing of a McNamara letter to Murray L.
Pennell, of Springfield, HL, as follows:
"Am surprised at the kind of letter
you write. Hereafter be more care
ful, for the Lord only knows who
reads these letters."
The government produced a notice
headed "Warning" and signed by pres
ident Ryan and Hockin which was
published in the union magazine a
month after the McNamaras were ar
rested and the purpose of which the
government alleged -was to induce the
members to destroy evidence about
Accusations that Philip A. Cooley, of
New Orleans, had an iron worker ad

CAN PREVENT STRIKE
Arbitration is the only thing that will
save the G. H. A S. A. from a strike of
its trainmen and yardmen, local rall
road men say. A poll of the road has
been taken on the question of strike or
no strike and the vote is said to have'
shown a 90 per cent majority in favor
of the strike. The grievance of the
trainmen and switchmen is that the
terms of the old contract are not to be
incorporated into the new contract and
unless this is done the men swear
that threy will strike. ,

GET WHAT YOU WANT.
Bji WILLIAM JOHNSTON.
(In American Magazine.)
ET what you want in this world. It's here waiting for you. Ail you
f -. have to do is to reach for it. If you reach hard enough and far
enough and long enough, you'll get itj no matter what it is you want.
Suppose you are foolish enough to want great wealth. You can get it.
But to get it you must make up your mind that you want wealth, that you
want it above everything else in the world.
Observe an industrious alien with a push-cart. He wants a thousand
dollars. He sleeps in a cellar. He rises at four. He works till ten at night.
He denies himself food to save. Some day he will have his thousand dollars.
"But." yon protest, "I can't sleep in a cellar. I'm above running a push
cart." Very well. then. There's little likelihood that you wiU, ever be rich.
There are other things that you want more than wealth your comfort, your
Suppose you are more sensible. Suppose that it is success you want.
Good! There are few joys in this world that can compare with the joy of
achievement. Sot your mark and start climbing toward it. You'll reach it
if you keep at it. Be persistent und be patient. If you are in Maine you
can't wish yourself in California. You can't get there overnight either. But
you'll get there sometime if you start and keep going, even if you go on your
hands and knees.
But, remember this: Xo man ever climbs higher than the mark he sets
himself. Xo man ever reaches- the top walking sideways. Xo man achietes
wl i. keeps turning back.
And one thing more:
Pick your apple carefully before you start to climb the tree. Sea
apples are sour.
