PRDIABIES IN JERSEY COLBY EXPECTS VICTORY. Late Returns, However, Indicate New Idea Defeat. Trenton. ST. J.. Sept. 23— Returns received up to 1 o'clock this morning indicate the defeat of Senator Colby for renomination and the nom ination by the Republicans in his place of Thomas L. Raymond. The returns from other sections of the state indicate a defeat for the New idea Republicans. The voters of New Jeryey. both Republican and Democratic, nominated their own candidates for county, city and ward offices yesterday. It was t!.e first trial in the state of the new direct primary nomination law. and the interest aroused, the enthusiasm displayed and the large number of citizens Vho went to the polls to take advantage of its provisions proved that the new measure was a success. In nearly ever:-" county in the state there were contests for the nomi nations in both parties, but the greatest inter est centred on the contest in Es?ex County, where Senator Everett Colby was being opposed Ear a renomination by Thomas L. Raymond. Gardiner Colby, vice-president of the Xew Idea organization, at a late hour said that the returns, although coming in slowly, were favor able to the Senator. He said the New Idea fol lowers did not want to be too optimistic, but the indications were that Senator Colby had defeated his opponent for renomination. As the polls did not close until 9 o'clock, and as the vote was heavy, he did not expect to know how decisive the result would be until morning. Alfred N. Dalrymple. chairman of the Essex County Republican Committee, said at mid r.ieht that his candidate, Thomas L. Raymond, had defeated Senator Colby. Only a few dis tricts had been heard from when he issued his statement. Reports from a few of the townships satis fied Dalrymple that Raymond was gaining ground in what was heretofore Colby territory. In the shrievalty fight the "regulars" claim that Samuel F. Wilson, their favorite, will poll a heavy vote, and with his plurality in Newark and the northern part of the county will defeat Morgan with ease. Much the same situation existed in the Dem ocratic ranks, owlnc to the number of candi dates in the race for State Senator and Sheriff, but a canvass of the districts during the day was taken as a gloomy aspect for the machine leaders. Most interest centered in the shriev alty race and if reports heard at the Demo cratic headquarters could be relied upon, the machine will be beaten to a standstill by either Police Commissioner William Harrisan or Mayor Isaac Schoenthal. At the Democratic headquarters at 11:15 o'clock the leaders de clared they would issue no statement as to the outcome until to-day. William Fellowes. Morgan, the New Idea can didate, seems to have won the nomination for Sheriff. The success of the new primary law is un questioned, according to persons not identified with the organizations of either party, but the bosses were loud . in their complaints that it was a failure. Machine leaders worked as hard as they would have at a regular Presi dential- election. They spent money freely, and in districts where the New Idea or reform Republicans were defeated, they pointed with derision at the ease with which the indepen dent candidates could be defeated. A promi nent New Idea leader said last night: "The fact that most of the communities in the state at special elections voted to abandon the use of the voting machines made the re sults come in late. This has been pointed out as an Instance of the alleged cumbersomeness of the new law. The old ballot boxes were used and the old method of counting by charts was resorted to. This naturally will prevent the actual results being known until noon to morrow. "A striking feature of the operation of the new law was the absence of fights. Under the oii primary system many arrests were made for illegal voting, and often bloodshed was a part of a primary day programme. But save for one or two arrests in Camden, where the ri>a'ry was particularly keen, and in Bay onne, primary day was particularly peaceful." GOODWIX ASKS DIVORCE, Actor Files Suit Against Marine Elliott at Reno, Nev. Reno, Nev.. Sept. 22.— 1t was learned here to-day that Nat C.

Sew Yorker and Daughter in Danger in White Mountains. [By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Bretton Woods, N. H., Sept. 22.— Henry R. Goodnow and iiis«daugl:ter. Miss Elinor Good now, of No. 95 Riverside Drive. New York, reached the Mount Washington Hotel, where they are guests, after spending the night in the Zealand Valley, lost and without food. Mr. and Miss Goodnow started out yesterday morning to walk from Bretton Woods to the WUiey House oy the way of the Zealand Valley route, and on trying to follow an old lumber railroad near the Zealand River, lost their way. They were forced to Bleep in the woods over night, and la the morning were undecided as to which way to try and got out. They started to the west toward North Wood stock this morning, and had they not found one of the American Motor Club signs, which directed th^m back to the Wi'l«\v House, they would have been in great peril. Both are great- Iv fatigued, but they did not puffer any physical injury. The searching parties that went out ai"t«*r them have not returned, and it is probable that one party which followed ov*r the same route that they took will have to remain out overnight, as a forest tire now blocks their wty out- Mr. Goodnow and his daughter barely es caped the fire themselves this morning. BOOTBLACK ROBBED OF $3325.- Springfield. Maps.. Sept. 22. — George Nicholson, a bootblack, reported to the police to-day that two strangers had robbed him of $3,325. The old flim-flam same was worked. PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT LEAVING OYSTER BAY. BOY CONFESSES MURDER PARK MYSTERY SOLVED. Says He Killed Spanish Priest in Central Park. Enrique de Lara, seventeen years old. and son of a wealthy merchant of San Domingo, was arrested last night charged with the murder of Father Arturo Asencio. the Spanish priest who was found unconscious on the Circle Drive, in Central Park, opposite West 107 th street, on Monday night. September 14. with a bullet wound in his head. The priest died two days later without telling anything except that he had not shot himself. Detectives who made the arrest say the voting prisoner made a full con fession of the murder. When the priest's body was found there was every indication that he had shot himself. Val uable jewelry was found on him, and for this reason it was contended that he was not mur dered for robbery. A revolver was found near his body. The arrest of De Lara came about, however, through a search made by detectives for a watch nnd some money that had been stolen from the priest before his death. On August 30 Father Asencio went to Police Headquarters and reported that a gold watch and SIRO had been stolen from his room. He was living then at No. 219 West 14th street. Detective George W. Jiminez and Captain Carey investigated the robbery. The priest said that his stolen valuables had been left in an open trunk in his room. There was no clew to be found of the thief, but Detective Jiminez was still working on the case on September 14, when the priest —as fpund i:i the park. He thonght there might be some connection between the robbery and the murder, and his theory proved correct, if young De Lara's confession be true. The detectives say that De Lara confessed that he had stolen the watch and money from the priest, and it is the belief of the police that the young man's motive was to cover up his former crime, although De Lara says that a dispute with the priest made Mm angry while they were together in the Park. Working on this theory Detective Jiminea made a careful search of the priest's room in the hotel and found, among other tilings, a card on which was written the name Hachtman, and the address No. 257 West 110 th street. Captain Carey and Detective Jiminez finally found a Mrs. Louise Hachtman at.No. 257 West 112 th street, who said she was an intimate friend of the priest She became acquainted with the priest, she said, at Monte Christi. San Domingo. She mentioned De Lara, who boarded with her, as a friend of the r«r!est. He had come from his home, in San Domingo, on the same steam ship with the priest, and had gone with him to Baltimore. De Lara, she said, had spent four years in a university in Germany, and his father owned big stores in England, Germany and France. The detectives caught De Lara, who told them, they say, that he and the priest had been together much of the time since coming to this city. The detectives had been told that De Lara carried a revolver, but he denied having that and the detectives became suspicious. They learned that De Lara carrird a watch, but he denied this. They went to his room again and interrogated him at some length concerning the watch and the revolver, but he insisted that they were mistaken. Then the detectives searched the room, how ever, and found three pawn tickets; two were for watches and the third for a chain and locket. At that, the detectives say, the young man broke down and made a full confession. On the night of August 3<> he went to the priest's room and spent several hours there with Father Asencio. In a trunk the priest kept a gold watch and some money. The priest left the room for a time, asd during his absence De Lara took the watch and money, $180, from the trunk. On the night of September 14 De Lara was out walking and met the priest near Eighth avenue and 112 th street. The priest asked him to take a walk in the park. They were walking along a path near the block house, he said, when the priest and he quarrelled. The priest started to run and De Lara shot him. De Lara said he was frightened, but walked over to the priest to« see If he was dead. The man's coat was open, be* said, as<3 he saw his watch hanging suspended from a chain. He took this, be BSW, and then ran toward Central Park W«st TTi.- y. >ung man cannot understand English, and his confession was made to the detectives through an Intel prater. The registration days this year are Monday, October 5; Tuesday, October 6; Saturday, October 10, and Monday, October 12. All who intend to vote must register on one of these days, between 7 a. m. and 10 p. m. WHOLE VILLAGE FBOZEN TO DEATH. Seattle Sept.

Gun Explodes on French Cruiser — Horrible Scenes. Toulon, Sept. 22— One of the big turret guns on the French armored cruiser Latouche Tre ville exploded in the course of practice here to day, completely wrecking the after turret and killing outright the entire gun crew of thirteen. A number of men were seriously injured, some of them probably fatally. The accident was similar to that on board the schoolship Couronne. off L,es Salins d'Hyeres, on August 12 last, when six men were killed and eighteen injured. The drill to-day had been going on a considerable time, when without warning the whnle turret seemed to blow out. Dismembered bodies were thrown in all direc tions, and several c-f them were blown into the sna through the great breach caused by the ex plusion. The spectacle was horrible, the dead and wounded, together with shattered arms and legs, littering the decks. A call to quarters was sounded, and as speedily as possible the wound ed were cared for. The gun which exploded was 7.0 inches bore, of which the cruiser car ried two. Happening so- soon after the accident on the Couronne, the explosion to-day has caused a sensation in naval circles, and doubt less will lead to a most rigid investigation. The Latouche-Tr£ville is an armored cruiser of 4.681 tons. She was built at Havre in 1592-'O3, at a cost of $1,700,000. Her armament consists at two 2.7-inch and six 5.3-inch guns, with fourteen smaller pieces. Her is twenty-two knots. She car- Ties a crew of 373 men. A PLOT IX PARAGUAY.

BACK TO WHITE HOCSE THE PRESIDEXTS RETVRX Will Confer with Campaign Leaders — Preparing Strong Message. [From The Tribune Bureau. 1 Washington, Sept. 22.— The flag flying over the White House to-night announced to all Washingtonians the presence of the President and Mrs. Roosevelt and their children, who ar rived just before dark, their summer vacation of three months at Oyster Bay being ended. The Presidential party reached the national capital about 6 o'clock and were immediately driven to their official home. The White House has been repainted and refurnished in many interior por tions and has undergone the usual overhauling while the family has been away. The n^xt six weeks will be busy ones with the President. The campaign will bring to the executive offices many of th« Republican lead ers of the country, some of whom are already in the city. They will confer wfth the President about the details of the campaign and make suggestions that will be received by him and laid before Mr. Taft. The usual official business will have to be looked after, decision on many important departmental matters having been postponed until the President's return. The writing of the annual message will proceed slow ly, but must be finished soon after election. It is known in advance that the message will not be an innocuous one merely because the President is going out of office. It will discuss the great questions the President considers un settled and still needing attention, and will make recommendations that the Chief Executive hopes will have the attention of Congress. The message will be written on the assumption of Mr. Taffs election, but in the remote conting ency of Mr. Bryan's success practically no changes will be made In the document, the President proceeding on the theory that what is right and proper should be put before Congress and the country, nu matter what the circum stances. The general disposition here is to ascribe tfce President's early return to his desire to be in closer touch with men and affairs than he could be at his summer home. The White House is connected by wire with the important news centres, an. l there the President can imme diately be put in touch with the latest hap penings in all parts of the country. It is the President's desire to be in toucn with public men regarding preparations for the revision of the tariff at the spe<*al session of Congress, al ready announced to be called immediately after March 4 next. The special train bearing the Presidential party was met at the station by members of the Cabinet and army and navy eaVets.

Wil son and Postmaster General Meyer fanned the centre of the group. "That was a hot shot this morning." said Mr. Meyer, alluding to the President's letter on the candidacy of Mr. Taft. "J think we*vie been hitting them hard." re sponded Mr. Roosevelt laughingly. In the brief colloquy which took place the PresJdenfl ex pressions indicated that he was satisfied with the progress of the campaign. As the President passed through the gates and throusli the President's room to Us carriage a thousand or more persons cheered 1-jstily. In the carriage with the Pr-^si lent ar.d Mrs. Roose velt was Mrs. Clifford Richardson, who will be a White House guest for some days. There was a big crowd at the Pennsylvania sta tion in Jersey City yesterday noon to cheer Presi dent Roosevelt as Be passed through to take ■ spe cial train for Washington on his way there from.

There were many friends at the Oyster Bay sta t:cn to bid the President goodby. the President acknowledging their parting salute by bowing and raising his hat. Many tried to shake hands with him, but were pressed back by the secret service men, who kept a wide space open for the President and his family. The special train was delayed to make way for a regular one, and In this wait the President turned to the crowd and said: "Good luck to you aIL I've had a bully need time this summer."

Eight Thousand Republicans Cheer Candidate's Forceful Speech — Campaign Train Starts To-day. [By Telegraph to Th« Trlliww 1 - Cincinnati. Sept. 22.— Judge Toft's last <Jay> m Cincinnati was one of the liveliest he has thus far experienced In his campaign. From early morning until late at night the hurrahs of admiring and enthusiastic Republicans have ceased, only to give place to bands playing •Harrlgan. " to which everywhere are sun* words complimentary to the candidate, ending with the refrain, "Billy Taft— that's he." The Hamilton Marching Club, of Chicago, was the first to arrive with, a band to awaken those Clncinnatiana who slept late with the strains of "Harrisan," and from that time until raid night the streets bounding the Sinton, and even the generous corridors of the hotel it self, resounded with eager shouts of Jubilant Republicans proclaiming "Billy — that's he." Not since the candidate was Informed offi cially of his nomination has Cincinnati been so thoroughly awake politically as to-night, when marching clubs from Indianapolis. Columbus. Hamilton and other places lent the blaze of torch and the blare of trumpet as an escort to the candidate, who .was the principal feature of the rally of the National League of .Re publican Clubs at Music Hall. Comparatively early In the day and wholly unexpectedly, the Presidential candidate ap peared at the convention of the National League of Republican Clubs. The members, who had not expected to see Judge Taft until evening, went wild with Joy. A wave of ap plause changed rapidly into an outburst of cheering, and every method of expressing' de light known to Americans was employed to voice the pleasure of the delegates at the pres ence of their leader. When the enthusiasm had found expression. Judge Taft made a few pertinent remarks wel coming the delegates from every section of the country and then shook hands with all present. From the national league convention Judge Taft hurried to the Sinton. where he received a representative delegation from the African Na tional Baptist convention, which had come from Lexington several hundred strong to meet him. The Rev. E. C. Norrts said he voiced the loyalty and determination of the negroes of the United States to support Judge Taft in the coming elec tion as the leader of the only party which had ever undertaken to obtain his rights as an American citizen for the necro. "When I get into the White House— ing lamto be put there— no plea In favor of a negro will have any less consideration because he Is a negro rather than a white man." said Judge Taft in reply. He eald that In a letter he .had from Booker T. Washington he had been told that when he received Dr. Morris's delegation he would be meeting real represen tatives of the race. "I welcome your sympathy and support." he continued, "and I feel that there is in my bosom a sympathy with your race which en titles me to that support." Mr. Taft enjoined his hearers that the on-9 way to abolish race prejudice was by a life of thrift and enterprise and good citizenship on the part of the negro. There were many and positive evidences that great progress was being made by the race and a continuance of sensible, earnest endeavor was urged. The afternoon the candidate spent at the home of his brother in completing some of the speeches he will deliver on his trip. In the evening a great Republican rally, at tended by all the delegates of the National League of Republican Clubs and several thou sand local Republicans, more than eight thou sand being present, was the occasion of a mon st. demonstration of enthusiasm. Those who spoke besides 21?. Taft -were President John Hays Hammond of the League of Republican Clubs, the Rev. John Wesley Hill, pastor of Metropolitan Temple. New York, and Job Hedges, an attorney of New;, York. The audience was regaled with a re view of the entire procession, which marched down one aisle and up another in the huge music hall. Mr. Taft followed the famous Blame Club, the last in the line of march, and his appear ance was the inspiration for a demonstration which lasted for more than ten minutes. As soon a3 order was restored he was introduced in a word by President Hammond of too league, and at once began his speech. He lest no time in getting down to the gist of his speech, and he went after Mr. Bryan with a force and vigor which thrilled his audience and called forth the most enthusiastic deraoastra-. tions of approval. JUDGE TAFT ON BRYAN. After contrasting the accomplishments and the purposes of the Republican party with what he termed the Democratic record of opposition and promise. Mr. Taft said: Turning now to the other picture, what is it that we have to expect from Mr. Bryan? Hare we anything to expect but what he promises?
