WIPED IT FIMISTS
Con i; I oih orated Seattle Mess Was
Not So Warm.
Republicans Cleaned Them Out
With Heavy Majorities of
1500 to 2SOO
Seattle, March 7. —Complete returns of
the city election held here yesterday
show that the entire republican ticket,
with the exception of three ward coun
cilmeu, was elected by pluralities lang
ing from 1500 to 2500. The vote for
the principal oflices was as follows:
For mayor —Humes (republican) 5175:
Cotterill (fusion) .'IOO4.
For comptroller—Paul (republican)
5332; Hill (fusion) 2830.
For corporation counsel —Humphrey
(republican) 4.NGO; Emory (fusion) 333l.
For city treasurer —Rathbun (republi
can) 4896; Kunkel (fusion) .'5224.
The council now stands eight republi
cans and three fusionists.
WAS DKATH TO FUSION.
Republicans Wiped Them Up at
Seattle.
Seattle, March 6. —The city election
here today resulted in a sweeping victory
for the republican ticket. While at mid
night complete returns are not available
there is every indication that Mayor
Thomas .1. Humes has been re-elected by
a majority of from 1200 to 2000 and
that the entire republican ticket, with
tiie exception of perhaps two council
men, has gone in by a vote nearly as
large. The issue was clear cut between
Mayor Humes, representing what he
terms a liberal policy, on the one side,
and George F. Cotterill, representing a
policy of restriction on the other. Cot
teriil, who is a populist and prohibition
ist, was nominated by the fnsionists and
a non-partisan league and ran on a
ticket headed democratic. He had the
strong endorsement of the church ele
ment and was pledged to close public
gambling and restrict the sale of liquor
anil the social evil. Mr. Humes declared
he would allow gambling and the sa
loons to run under police supervision
and restrict fallen women to oue quarter
of the city.
The result was almost a landslide in
favor of Humes. Two years ago he wan
elected by 800 over his fusionist op
ponent. This year with a registration
."{ooo greater, his majority is probably
doubled. The city tonight is wild with
enthusiasm.
At 1 o'clock in the morning complete
returns from a majority of the precincts
indicate the election of the entire repub
lican ticket by big majorities. Humes"
plurality for ma?or over Cotterill, his
democratic opponent, is about I"too,and
the candidates for corporation counsel,
comptroller, treasurer and eouneilmau
atlarge are elected by virtually the
same majorities. Of nine ward council
men the democrats elect three. One of
the democratic councilmen was elected
bj two plurality.
The church people, whom the demo
crats confidently predicted would vote
for Cotterill, failed to do so in any large
numbers. It is impossible to give com
plete returns at this time.
HEMP IS COMING.
Thousands of Tons Heady lor Ship-
inent at Manila.
Washington, March I.—Three cable
messages from General Otis were received
at the wax department today. One con
tained a long list of casualties among
the troops iv the Philippines since the
last report.
A second announced the arrival at
Manila today of a government trans
port from the east coast of Tayabas
province with eight American and 410
Spanish soldiers recently released from
captivity among the insurgents.
The third message states that since
the recent opening to commerce of the
island ports, 13,000 tons of hemp and
70,000 bales of tobacco had been re
ceived at Manila and that large ship
ments of the commodities named will
soon be made to the United States and
other countries. The fact that General
Otis has not reported any military
operations since the departure of Gen
eral Hates" expedition to southern Lu
zon to complete the plan of opening the
hemp ports in that quarter is accepted
by the war department officials as an
indication that the campaign is pro
gressing satisfactorily and that our
forces have not met with any serious
opposition by the insurgents 'in recent
movements.
Secretary Root has made a positive
denial tif the published report that he
was worried at the long silence of Gen
eral Otis in regard to military opera
tions in the Philippines.

the Pacific coast states have bees only
partially examined. Accounts of over
5500 disastrous fires have been obtain
ed in the seventeen states already ex
amined. Michigan, Minnesota and Wis
consin have suffered the most severely.
These records are taken chiefly from
newspapers, and where it has been pos
sible to compare them with the figures of
practical lumbermen, it has been found
that the tendency of the press is to
underestimate the damage.
Trust Sugar Took a Drop
New York, March 0 — The American
Sugar Refining Company has reduced
the price of all its sugars 10 cents per
hundred pounds. The usual reduction
is 5 cents at a time. This double reduc
tion brings the price of standard granu

Still More Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service haw unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great value
are always selected by counterfeiters for
imitation, notably the celebrated Hos
tetter's Stomach Hitters, which hap
many imitators but no equals for indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation, ner
vousness and general debility. The Hit
ters sets things right in the stomach,
and when the stomach is in good order
it makes good blood and plenty of it.
In this manner the Bitters get at the
seat of strength and vitality,and restore
vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be
ware of counterfeits when buying.
