marriage to the Duke of Abruzzi. It is
reported that he has informed the Ital

an immediate decision.
The dowry mggested for Miss El

port on the fire which took place in

Bryan has issued the following state
ment, in part, atout the election:
"While the election has gone against
lis by a decisive majority, the returns
are yet too incomplete for analysis. We
made the fight on a platform embodying
what we considered best for the people.

licity of campaign contributions, the
election of United States senators by
direct vote of the people, the curbing of
the trusts, railroad regulation and tariff
reduction will still come."

Mr. Bryan commends the (national
DeiiKK-atic committee and thanks '"the
millions of Democrats who have shown
their devotion for twelve years." He
finds consolation in the support given
him by his own state and hopes that

ture Xebraska will carry out the ideas
of the Denver platform and '"set a good
example for the country."

Nation May Follow Example
of America's Battleship
By United Press.
WASHIXGTOX, Xov. 0. England is
about to follow the example of Presi
dent Roosevelt in sending a fleet of bat
tleships and of big cruisers on a trip
around the world, for the purpose of
bringing home to her various colonial
dependencies a notion of her naval su
premacy and of her power to furnish
adequate maritime protection against
any danger which they may fear of for
eign invasion and attack. Of course the
despatch of the fleet in question will
depend on the peaceful settlement of
the troubles which have arisen in the
southeast of Europe.
At the time when the visit of the
American battleships to Australia was
nisi, announceu attention was caueu iu
the regret expressed in influential quar
ters in England that there was no
Dritish naval force of corresponding im
portance in Australian waters to take
part in welcoming them there, and to
the fears entertained in London with
regard to the impression likely to to
caused thereby in the antipodes.
They Look To America.
These apprehensions have been realiz
ed, and the utterances of statesmen and
of politicians, as well as of the public
pres, in Australia ami Xew Zealand
leave no doubt as to the exi-tence of
the conviction today anion"; the white
population there that in the event of
trouble with Japan, which is what they
dread more than anything else, they
would have to look to the United States
and to her navy for assj-tance and pro
tection rather than to Great Rritian.

Entire Force of the Village
BlLHas Vanished Wife
OYSTER BAY, Xov. C Oyster Bay,
President Roosevelt's quiet village, has a
sensation that almost overtops the elec
tion. The town's entire police department
has disappeared, and there being no
force to institute a search the town is
in a quandry as to what to do. In pri
vate life the police department is Fred

information he laid aside his regalia
Monday morning, donned citizen's clothes

Most of this information conies from
Mrs. De Bosche, who turned sleuth
when she found that her husband was
no longer policing the streets. Satur
day night, a shanty was destroyed by
fire and De Bosche was on hand to help
the local Fire Department. After the
fire he failed to return home and the
following morning his wife started out.
She found her husband, it is said, at
Skoen's restaurant where, it is alleged,
he was not in the tost of condition.
De Boshche promised to go home as
soon as he had fixed himself up a bit,
and this promise he kept. But he didn't
stay home, and now no one knows
where he is. In the mean time Oyster
Bay has not a soul to preserve the

He declares that the teachers arc the

Bulletin 3 p. m.
By United Press.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 6. The political sit
uation remains unchanged. It will take
the official count to determine accurately
the result in the state. The latest re
turns give Taft about 2,500 majority.
Both sides are claiming the minor state
offices. The legislature is apparently
Democratic by five to eight majority.
Hadley will be obliged to solve the
race issue the first thing after his in
auguration. Hundreds of negroes who
supported him are demanding places on
the police force. It is believed many

With 49 counties still to make their

Richard C. Kerens for the Republican

remarkable strength in the country.

in 05 counties that have reported on
