Berlin, June 17. It seems that the
kaiser is not so badly beaten, after all.
Those early returns were a little deceptive,
and the Uer ones put a different face on
the matter. News from the cities, as stated
In these dispatches, was likely to be against
the government, but returns from t he agri
cultural districts are now coming in, and
there is not so much "hurrah" in the oppo
sition ranks. From all that can now 1e
ascertained it is reasonably safe to conclude
that the government certainly has lost
nothing, and probably has "won a little.
The returns may be summarized as follows
In the 10 districts from which reports had
been received at 10 o'clock: Eighty-five dep
uties had been elected; In the remaining
ninety-five new ballots will lie necessary;
of the eighty-five deputies elected thirty
six will vote with the government, forty
How the rartie Htnl So Far.
The parties si-linjj with the government
had lost three seats to the opposition; the
parties working against the government
had evened matters by losing the same
number of .emits to the friends of the army
bill. The Conservatives had elected sev
enteen deputies, the Social Democrats
twenty-three, the Clericals twenty, Rad
ical Unionists one, Kree Conservatives
four, I'oles eight. Democrats five, anti
Semites two. Independents two both fa
vorable to the bill. Government Clericals
one. National I.iliernls two. Not one im

The Conservatives had won two seats
formerly held by Free Conservatives. . The
Social Democrats had gained three seats
from TJichterists anil one from the Con
servatives. Ijieherclericals had gained one
from the government Clericals and had
. lost one to them. The Radical Unionists
" had elected one deputy, who voted against
the army bill, but will vote for it in the
next reichstag. The Free Conservatives
had gained two seats and lost three. The
Democrats had gained one seat from the
National Liberals. The National I.ilfials
had lost three seats and gained two.
Some Still Later Return.
Returns have now la-en received from
220 out of 3!t" electoral districts. In
ninetv-eiicht candidates have been elected;
in 122 second ballots will be necessary. The
National Liberals. Conservatives and
Clericals are holding their own. The
Kichter Radicals remain" very -far behind.
Of the ninty-eight deputies, already elected
fonrtv-two are counted for the bill tknd
fifty-six againstT"rw fiincc the reports re
ceived up to 10 o'clock ,wer sent out, the
disnatches have shown tnat tne government
has gained two more new seats and has
- lost one more old one.
How the Vote Ran at Merlin.
The revised lists of the Berlin polls show
that the Radical vote fell from 75.0U) to
62,000, while the Socialist vote increased
from 126.S17 to 130.977.. , The vote of the
Conservatives and anti-Semite cartel in
creased from 34.0HS to 4S.135. Complete
returns from the Second division of Mun
ich show that George von Vollmar, the
victorious leader of the South German
Democrats, polled 15,289 votes.

- Several small election riots are reported
from the provinces. In Strassburg short
ly after the poll was annonnced about 2,-
' 000 Socialists began parading the streets
3 and shouting for their candidate, August
" Bebel. ; They refused to disperse when the
police attacKea mem ana many cneerea
for France. The military eventually broke
tip the procession and arrested eight men
Nobodv was injured. Z
In Reutlangan, Wurtemburg, the police
slashed and arrested many Democrats who
attacked t he police station. la Greun
burg, Silesia, the Socialists rioted through
the streets. The police dispersed them
-with drawn sabres and arrested the leaders.
In this city the police arrested Ilerr Land
auer, an Anarchist editor, on the charge
of inciting riots.
The Socialist organ Vorwaerts exults
over the result of the elections, which, it
Bays, . will form "a glorious title-page to
the radiant records of the future." The
aggregated Socialist vote bids fair to ex
ceed 2,0fX).0)0. The Vorwaerts predicted
that the National liberal success would be
chiefly in the rich manufacturing towns of
west Germany. It is likely, says the Vor
warts, that many Anti-Semities will be
successful at the expense of Conservatives
who dry-nursed them.
At Jerichow a new ballot is necessary
between Count Herbert Bismarck, agra
rian, who received 5,423 votes, and Ferdi
nand Woellmer, Richterist, who received
4,170 votes. Ilerr Glocke, Social Demo
crat, received 2,971 votes.

a Couple of Tears.
Springfield, June 17. The Illinois leg
islature has passed into history and is no
more, both bouses having adjourned sine
die. As closing transactions the senate
passed the following bills: Giving county
superintendents exclusive power to ex
amine teachers; giving county commis
sioners power to create new road districts;
allowing municipalities to buy or lease
water works. There were two reports
from the Joiiet investigating committee,
the minority declaring that even that
ditch didn't cost too much and exonerat
ing the commissioners as well as Major
McClaughrey. Neither of them was adopt
ed, three Democrats voting with the Re
publicans. In the house the following bills and res
olutions were agreed to: Appropriating
2,500 for expenses of special committees of
the general assembly; reappropriating the,
unexpended balance of the amount here
tofore appropriated for the Illinois build
ing and exhibit at the World's fair; ap
propriating 700 to pay the employes of the
general assembly; resolution of compli

incorporating a body; revising the law in
relation to the commitmehtpf lunatics; pro
tecting Chinese pheasants; creating a state
insurance department with a chief at
$5,000 per year. The most important
measures left in the shuffle and defeated
are these. Torrens land transfer bill and
resolutions providing for the appointment
of a commission to devise some means to

Chicago, June 17. The Typographical
union has decided to meet next year at
Louisville. The law governing the pro
motion of subs was amended so as to go
back to the old plan, which gives the fore
man full control to promote any man who
has "subled' three days. This is provid
ing the local unions ratify it. A motion to
require union men in all foremanships in
any business where one branch is under
control of the union was tabled.
The session in the evening was taken up
by the consideration of the reports of the
committee on laws, but nothing important
was done. The momentous question of
the evening was brought in when the com
mittee on shorter hours presented their
report on the reduction of the ten hour
day for the book and job printers, and a hot
discussion ensued as to whether to make
the demand for nine and one-half or nine
hours, the former being oh the System of
gradual reduction. A vote on the ques
tion resulted in a victory for the nine-hour
plan by a vote of 70 to 107, this to go into
effect Nov. 1.
Declined to Hear Gompers.
CHICAGO, June 17. The principal busi

CONTRACTOR DANT VERY ILL.
J . " .
The Ford'a Theatre Ilater ATeete His
Sanity Testimony,"' '
WASHINGTON, June.7. Contractor Dant,
who was doing the work which resulted in
the collapse of Ford's Opera house, is in a
serious condition, and it is feared that his
mind will be affected by the disaster.
Ever since the accident he has been a sick
man, bis malady attacking the brain rather
than the body. Once or twice he left his
residence with plans of work he had under
way, but was compelled to return to his
home. Whenever spoken to about the
calamity he would break down completely
and cry like a child.
His condition for the past three or four
days has been so serious that the doctor
has prohibited his leaving the house and
denied the presence of all save the mem
bers of his family. The subject of the ac
cident is positively prohibited. Mrs. Dant
said that her husband was very despondent
and that the accident prayed upon his
mind to such an extent that she feared per
manent injury would result.
The testimony- before the coroner was
given by Augustus Davis, an unsuccessful
bidder on the work. He told Thorpe that the
work was dangerous, but did not know
how Dant weut at it. W. C. Covert, su
perintendent of the building, had been told
by Colonel Ainsworth to report anything
that looked like danger to the building.
Covert did not see anything of that kind,
but was not an expert. Architect McGill
said no man in his right senses would have
tried to do the work without shoring.

Washington, June 17. Among the vic

son of John A. Daly, an ex-soldier from
Pennsylvania, employed as a watchman in
the interior department. Daly was dis
charged some days ago, but when Secre
tary Smith learned that young Daly had
been killed in the- theatre wreck, and that
the family might suffer by reason of the

Kearney, Neb. Reports That Several

FORT Sootx, Kas., June 17. May Oolvin,
the phenomenal girl horse thief ,' whose
career in the last two years has surpassed
anything of the kind known, has made
her escape from the Carthage, Mo., jail in
a most adroit manner. She was incarcer
ated there for the ninth offense of stealing
horses, all committed in the last two years,
though she is now but 19 years old. Her
dinner was handed into her cell at 12
o'clock and without stopping to eat it she
immediately began work with the iron
fork to effect her escape.
i As Familiar as the Daltona.
Her cell adjoined the jail wall, and with
the shrewdness of a professional jailbreaker,
for which she also has some reputation, she
succeeded in sawing an iron bar and dig
ging a hole through the wall about thirty
feet from the ground. She then tore her
bedclothes into ropes and formed a flexible
ladder, on which she descended to the
ground and was gone no one knew which
way before the sheriff missed her two
hours later. May Colvin ts as familiar to
the people of Kansas and Missouri as were
the Daltons. Her passionate fondness for
horses seems to have complete control of
all her faculties and energies, and prompts
her to the most daring deeds of horse steal
ing ever perpetrated.
