1 Bodies of Alcoholic Victims Ex

j Seattle, Nov. 10.— The bodies of two m«*n j

j Auburn, near Seattle. In an effort to •*■ i

; election on Tuesday. The town voted
j "wet." |
Both factions were making a hard fl£ ht |
and th«» prohibitionists appear«>«d to be '' |
the lead until late in the, afternoon. Then •
the tide began to turn. In a frantic effort
the anti-saloon leaders appealed to Deputy
Coroner ■■•a, an ardent prohibitionist, ',
I for aid.
He hurried to hi? establishment, where j
the bodies of th»* two men lay. Bolstering ]
them in an upright position m their coffin;?, j
he placed them in the front windows, j
Above the heads of each a sign reading j
i "He died of drink" was tackod. As voters ,
j hurried by. the anti-saloon men directed j
I their attention to th« exhibition.
"Ther«» was no desecration of the d*-ad." i
! said Cornell last night. "Th* men were j
j without friends, and their- bodies might j
! fast as well have been put to some pood j

: Meeting at Cooper Union.
; Many Won\?n Voters Gather to
Celebrate Great Victory in '
Washington State.
j A deep- voiced individual whom Mrs. Oar
j rie Chapman .-an. the chairman, called ',
j "Rok" enlivened the suffrage mass meet
j ins: at Cooper Union last night. The. meet- j
j lac was ■ Jubilee over the triumph or
| suffrage In the State of Washington, but it
. took time to pass several resolutions not ;
j immediately connected with that triumpn.
j and on*> of them was in condemnation of an
• anti-suffrase, article published. Mrs. < "att I
j said, "'in a magazine edited by a man named !
• Bok."
A roar of "ayes" greeted this resolution,
'■ but '- -■ the rear of the crowded hall came >
, a thundering "No!"
"Ah!" said tlie chairman, "the man
' named Bok Is here."
Nearly every resolution that was intro- ;
j duced cot a vigorous ''No!" from the bap?
■ vni^e. till the audience hooted, "Put him \
out!" But Mr?. Catt wouldn't hear of !t.
1 "There no run In being- a reformer," she ■
i said, "it every one is on your side."
Generous with Aoplause.
It was an audience prodigal ■>;' applause
i last night. It stamped and snouted when ;
: Mrs. Cati said that every county in the
! State of Washington went in favor of the
! amendment which enfranchised 125.000
! women. Tt applauded numerous resolutions
! to the echo, but when Miss Inez Mllhol
j land. a radiant exemplification of how a
I woman may he beautiful though a Buf-I
! frapist, pinned the fifth star on the
! •w-umiin sufTratro flag. It fairly went wild.
I Women made up the larger part of the)
! audience that filial the hall, but there was j
j a good sprinkling of men of all types.
.. from the rollariese to the Immaculate in
| vesture. One of the most disreputable of ;
j t!i»- collarl«»s was insistent in asking the i
I chairman "what men could do to help !
I along woman suffrage."
Five Societies Represented.
Five suffrage societies were represented I
| by the chairman and chairmen on the J
platform— Mrs. <*att. president of the In-

"We meet ta-night to rejoice for 'he j

Mrs. Dennett, a womanly vision in pray, j
with violets at tier wdst. read a telegram |
from IT. Anna Shaw, president of the.
I national association, sent from "the firing
line in South Dakota.*'
Then two mer»- men let down the four-j
starred flag at the back of the Fta^<=- and .
the audience shrieked joyously while Miss I
Milholjand. in flowing white, put five pins |
j In her mouth, an.i op" by one stuck them j
In the five I«K>se points •■•:■ stars.
i Then the brass ban), for which Mrs.
Catt later or. requested the audience to |
contribute, because tl-^ "suffragists had no i
money to pay it," burst out with
"America." in which the audi^nco joined.
It was a thrilling moment, and even "the
man named Bok." though a fat and un "
mijM'-al-lookin:? person, was observed to
! open his mouth and sing.
"Silencer Silent."
A shower of resolutions followed this
j ceremony. Mrs. Blotch, in presenting the
| one calling on the "legislature of the Em
pire state to confer on women the right of
i freeborn citizens." paid a few compliments
to legislators she had known, "and also to
Theodore Roosevelt.
| "Some years ago." sh" said. "Mr. Roose
1 velt was asked what would convince him
■ that women ought to have the ballot. •Gain
another state in the West' he said. Well,
we have done so. but the Universal 81
lencer is silent— a regular oyster at Oyster

Professor Parker Has Picture of
Alleged Mount McKinley.
Professor Herschel C. Parker, of Co-
I bis university, who recently returned
« m his exploration of Mount McKlniey,
r h'bited yesterday a series of photo
eS h taken near the Alaskan mountain.
which he save Is indisputable evidence that
Dr Frederick A. Cook never reached the
top of the highest peak In America.
Professor Parker says he found the
mountain P-ak which Dr. Cook photo
srraphe.l and called Mount McKinley, the
"Top of the Continent," and in support of
hi. statement showed a pbotograpli of a
mountain peak taken by his expedition last
summer. He pointed out that ■ compari
son of the two photographs shows in de
tail identical outlines of rock formation,
proving that they were pictures of the
same mountain.
"The mountain which I photographed,"
paid Professor Parker, "was twenty miles
away from Mount McKinley and fifteen
thousand feet below Its summit. This is
the same i>eak that f *ook photographed and
ailed the "Top of the Continent."
Professor Parker corroborates the con
fession made a year ago by Edward Bar
rill, suide of Dr. Cook, that they never
reached the top of Mount McKinley.
"On account of the formation of the
snow cornice It was* impossible to photo
praph the rock from the exact spot where
Di Cook himself stood. These cornices
are shaped according to the whims of the
winds that blow, and the formation varies
from year to year. It will al?o bi noted
that there Is more snow in the photograph
I took. This la due to the fact that I was
there in July, while f>r. < "ook's photograph
•was taken in September.
"While T regret that we were unable to
set to the top. still we had accomplished
the object of my mission, and felt well
satisfied with the result of the expedition."

White, of Totowa Borough, has brought
suit against her husband in the Chancery

G. L. Record Says Bad Leader- ,
ship Caused Republican Defeat. ;
Oeorp* T.. Record, on* of th* leaders of '
th* Progressive mov*m*nt in Ne* Jers»v. , •
made a statement yesterday In whl«*h be '
attributed the defeat of th* Republican '
party on Tuesday to the "alliance of th*
party organization with th* special inter- j 1
eats." ! '
Mr. Record thought that the high cost ; !
of living might have had something to do : '
with the landslide, and he added that the ;
"leadership of The Republican party in New
Jersey would in itself have brought about ;
a. political revolution." | ;
•'This Is not a time for recrimination." h*. j
went on. "but it i.« a time for sober reflec- !
tion over the lessons which th* election !
reaches In order that we may reorganize
for a party success in the future which ; '
shall be in the interest of the publlr."
The Prosrressives are going to start right
out and perfect a state organization, ac
cording to Mr Record. In Hudson County 1
their central committee will meet or. No- j
vember 13 for the purpose of oriraßlxa
tion. Speaking of th* future of the Pro
gressive movement, Mr. Record said:
"Th* Progressives from the different 1
counties in the state will meet In the near j
, future and perfect a state organization for j
the purpose of committing the Republican ,
party everywhere to our programme ■' re
form, and for the further ptirpos* of hold- ■.
ing the Democratic administration to an
honest redemption of the pledges which Dr.
Wilson has 30 explicitly made, and which
there Is every reason to believe he hon- |
»stly intends to carry out. The men who
I are leading the Republican Progressive \
movement in this state and throughout •
the country are men who r*al!se fully th* j
enormous difficulties of the task ahead of j
i them, who cannot be dl.-»oourag*d by any |
: defeat, and who will continue the ngtit In I
the firm belief that in the end th* prlnci- |
} pies for which hey stand will triumph." ,

The work of tabulating the returns Is now
