ter neater ns yet, the approach of that
season Is heralded by a decided advance
in the prices of all market goods with
the exception of meat. Tho most notable
chrnges have occurred In such farm
products as butter, eggs and poultry.
Strictly fresh eggs are quoted at from
4s to SO cents a. dozen, although dealers
expect that with the arrival of Southern
and Western shipments this prlco will
drop to 45 cents, where the local poultry
dealers will be able to hold It when the
end of the moulting season brings an In
erraso In the supply of eggs from tho
h.an who are now enjoying a vacation.
Cola storage eggs continue to sell for 23
to 32 cents a dozen.
Print butter has Increased In prloe by
6 cents and Is now quoted at from 43 to
48 cents a fipund, whllo creamery roll
butter Is bringing; from 33 to V) cents a
Chickens continue plontlful, although
the price of stewing chickens continues at
the high mark of 2-i cents a pound, owing
to tho fact that dealers aro holding their
Cider chickens for laying purposes in
anticipation of a shortage in tho egg mar
ket. Broilers are 'quoted at 23 cents a
pound and ducks at 23 cents. Turkey
continues to be scarce thus far, although
dealers differ as to whether or not this
is to be p. ''good,' season. At present
spring turkeys aro bringing from 32 to
6 cents a pound. A
In tho vogctablo market, corn and to
matoes havo almost disappeared, the lit
tle remaining selling at extremely high
prices, corn bringing BO cents a dozon
and tomatoes 35 cents a till. Sweet po
tatoes have Increased in prlco from 23
cents n half peck to 40 cents and string
beans from 25 cents a half peck to 35 and
40 cents, whllo lettuco is bringing from
8 to 12 cents a head. Other vegetables
contlnuo Arm in prlco, potatoes bringing
from 40 to 60 cents a basket, celory from
20 to 60 cents a bunch, according to size,
and cauliflower from 15 to 25 cents each.
Tho fish market has seen on Increased
price in certain kinds of sea food, o- ing
to the great number of severe storms
that have been experienced by the fisher
men of tho Atlantic coast during tho last
10 days. "Wcakflsh ore reported tempo
rarily scarce and are selling at 18 cents
a, pound. Blueflsh aro selling at 20 cents
and haddock at 12 cents a pound, whllo
codfish has Increased 'to IS cents and
rockflsh to 23 and 30 cents a pound. Span
ish mackerel is bringing the unusual fig
ure of 30 cents a pound and fresh mack
erel CO cents. Oysters are selling at from
CO cents to $1 a hundred for stowing pur
poses and from SO cents JLEO a hundred
for frying. Lobsters aro 35 cents a pound
nod scallops are quoted at $1.25 a quart.
Peaches and plums have disappeared
from tho market, but other fruits con
tinue firm in price and of a good quality.
Crapes are bringing from 15 to 20 cents a
box; oranges from 25 to 40 cents a dozen,
grapefruit from 75 cents to tt.25 a dozen,
ono the better qualities of seckel peara
3i cents a quarter peck. Apples are
quoted at 75 cents to $2 a bosket.
No change has occurred in the meat
market with the exception of hams,
which have dropped in price until they
are now selling at the unusually low
figure of 21 cents a pound. No bad ef
fects have been observed In Philadelphia
&3 yet resulting from tho quarantining
of -tho Chicago stock yards, following the
continuation of the hoof and mouth dis
ease among the cattle, and it Is thought
that no increase In price will result if the
hold-up lasts but four or Uvo days, for
this city Is well supplied at present.

Firemen Rescue Unconscious
From Upper' Floors Per
sons Leap From Windows.
Some Reported Missing.
NCW YOItK, Nov. B.-SIX men were
burned to death nnd many were saved
through thrilling rescues by firemen and
pollco today when Ore (tutted the Waverly
Hotel, a. lodglns house nt 3S1 8th nvonu.
Tho six who lost their lives were burned
to death In their beds or caught In the
hallways ns they rushed through names
In futile effort to reach safety.
Tho (Ire had swept away tho stairways
to the top !loor of the structure before
It was discovered and an alarm sent In.
Firemen from hook and ladder company
No. 13 performed gallant work In bring
ing a number of unconscious persons
from upper floors down their ladders.
There seems small hope of ever Identi
fying the dead. They are burned be
yond recognition. Soveral are reportod
to have been Injured leaping from
windows. Fifty lodgers are thought to
have been sleeping In the place. Some
aro roported missing.
Flro Chief Kcnlen, who directed tho
light against the flames destroying the
lodging house, declared It was a veritable
flro trap. It was a four-story building
built 41 years ago nnd when the stalr
wajs were burned, the occupants had
no chance to escapo except by Jumping.
Tho lire is believed to have been started
by a cigar or cigarette "butt" thrown
carelessly away by one of tho lodgers.
The flro broke out on the second floor
nnd was discovered by watchman Peter
Kelly. He gave tho alarm Immediately,
but before tho occupants of the building
could be aroused, tho hotel was a fur
nace. "This was a typlcnl New; York lodging
house," said tho flro chief. "They call
the sleeping quarters rooms, but they nro
nothing but stalls, even unlit for animals.
A flro start a and within two minutes a"
wholo floor Is a furnace. Tho wooden
partitions go up like tinder and tho men
have little chnnco for their lives. There
aro a lot of other lodging houses In tho
city Just as bad. It Is a wonder more
were not killed."
Coroner Ilealy was summoned to the
scene and began an investigation.
Co-eds Can Now "Cut" Eight Classes
Without Paying Pennlty.
Modification of the "no-cut" rule re
cently made by President M. Carey
Thomas, of Bryn Mawr College, has been
announced by the president as tho result
of a petition from the Undergraduate As
sociation. Under tho modified rule no
penalty will attach to tho first eight un
oxcused "cuts" of classes with certain
provisions. The rule, in part, follows:
"Cuts In excess of eight shall reduce
the grade for tho course In which they
nro taken by two points for each such
cut. Whon the unexcused 'cuts' exceed
20 per cent of the semester's scheduled
lectures of any course, the penalty shall
be four points for each additional cut."
The new rule was preceded by a state
ment that "the faculty, aftor carefully
considering tho petition of the undergrad
uate association, continues of the opinion
that it is Inexpedient to leave the regu
lation of attendance at classes to the
student body." It then nnnounces that
for tho year 1914-1D1G the rule has been
modified ".In the hope that no large per
centage of the undergraduate body will
avatl itself of the number of cuts men
tioned." Students are said to have declared their
wllllngnoss to accept a cut rule similar
to thoso at Harvard, Princeton and Yale.
To this the faculty objected on the ground
that Bryn Mawr Is on a higher plane than
the men's universities.
The undergraduates carried their trou
bles to the New York Alumnae, in annual
meeting at the Bryn Mawr Club, New
York city, last night.

Governor Dunne, of Illinois,
Agrees to Step Urged by
Federal Cattle Authori
ties. CHICAGO, Nov. 6 -The Union Stock
Yards, the largest live stock market In
tho world, will be closed tomorrow after
noon at 5 o'clock and remain closed until
Monday, November 18. The closing,
which tho Federal authorities havo been
trying to bring about for a week bo
cause of tho possibility of the spread of
foot nnd mouth disease, was finally
ngrecd to Inst night by Coventor Dunne.
As tho cattle, sheep and hogs now on
hnnd nro disposed of by tho packers, tho
ompty pons will bo thoroughly scoured
and disinfected.
The foot nnd mouth dlscaso was recog
nised ns a national peril whon tho Fed
eral authorities extended tho quarantine
to Now York and Maryland. Illinois. In
diana, Michigan nnd Pennsylvania had
previously been quarantined. Shipment
of stock out from the yards at Buffalo,
Pittsburgh and Indianapolis has been for
bidden. Thnt meat prices would be advanced
wns denied today by Edward Tllden, pres
ident of tho National Packing Company.
"There have been no cases of tho dis
ease reported In tho West, where wo get
tho most of tho supply," said Mr. Tllden.
"As long as tho West Is not Infected
quarantine hero nnd In the Hast will not
raise tho wholesalo price of meat. Wo
have large supplies on hand."
Infected Animals In West Chester
Herd Will Be Destroyed.
To stamp out the threatened epi
demic of hoof and mouth dlienso among
cattle in Philadelphia, United States In
spector C. A. Schaufler today went to
West Chester, where Infected cattle will
bo destroyed.
Rigorous precautions aro being taken
In the stockyards hero, which aro being
cleaned nnd disinfected daily. Tho 42
carloads of cattle which arrived nt the
West Philadelphia yards yesterday were
examined today for traces of tho dls
caso by Dr. E. C. Dlngley and his as
sistants. As the Fedoral authorities
have quarantined nil cattlo In Pennsyl
vania, as well fin In TlUnnln. Ohln. Mich
igan and Indiana, no cattlo aro being'
shipped out of the Stnto. Shipments
within the State and consignments from
Stntes which aro as yet free from tho
disease aro sanctioned, but ns an extra
precaution tho Government has ordered
nil stockyards disinfected nnd has pro
hibited shipments, except for Immediate
slaughter. Tho Pennsylvania Railroad
is cleaning and disinfecting all its stock
cars under tho supervision of Federal
Inspectors, who seal in ml placard the.
cars beforo thoy leave tho yards. Whore
yards havo not yet been disinfected,
cattle passed by Inspectors may be fed
In tho cars on route to their destina
tion. The price of meat has not advanced
in spite of the fact that thousands of
Western cattle have been destroyed In
a desperate effort to stamp out tho dis
ease. Large meat packing houses do
not anticipate nn extraordinary advance
in the price, placing fnlth In the Govern
ment's ability to check the Bpread of the
hoof nnd mouth disease.
"Prices may advance a little for a time,
but If they do it will be nothing more
than a temporary flurry," is the opinion
of tho D. B, Martin Company. "Condi
tions are a little unsettled at present,
but tho Government Is taking measures
to allow the shipment of cattle to bo con
ducted as It normally is. Tho dlseaso Is
not affecting the shipment of cattle for
slaughtering, but It restricts tho sale of
stock cattle. The farmers wilt havo to
withhold their cattlo for a few days and

CHICAGO, Nov B. An offlclal count
will bo necessary to deckle whothcr wom
en shall havo tho right of tho ballot In
at least ono of the seven States which
voted on tho question at Tuesday's elec
tion. Almost final returns show Montana nnd
Nevada have granted women the right
of franchise, while Missouri, Ohio. Ne
braska nnd North nnd South Dakota
refused to grant equal suffrage.
In Montana, wheto workers of tho
American Woman Suffrage Association
mado heroic efforts to win tho ballot,
the voto wns so closo that tho official
count will bo nccossnry to decide the out

on Incomplete returns. Returns havo

frage encountered opposition, nnd the
moasuro Is running behind less than BOO
Only one-seventh of tho total vote has
been heard from, leaving the result of
about 60,000 votes still to bo received.
Miss Rankin, chairman of tho Montana
Suffrage AsBOclntlon, says the measure
will enrry by n comfortablo majority.
The vote against suffrage in Ohio la
estimated at 60.000 In Missouri suffrage
was beaten by four to ono in the cities
and three to ono In the rural districts.
In Nevada, which seems won to the
cause of equal suffrage, 105 precincts out
of 240 gave 3610 votes for woman suffrage
and 2S0S against.
Tho mtlo of tho femalo vote on the
subject of prohibition in California and
Washington has not been tabulated yet.
Both theso States voted for the first
time to oust saloons. Tho California
proposed amendment would have pro
hibited tho manufacture of wines, an Im
portant Industry In tho State. Tho
sovorcness of tho proposed law Is given
by lenders of the Anti-Saloon League as
a possible reason for tho defeat of tho
In Illinois the proportion of female to
male voters In tho Democratic, Repub
lican and Progressive parlies was about
tliq same. Tho womnn political leaders
were mostly Identified with tho Progress
ive ptrtv. Figures in mnny precincts
showed, however, that the percentage of
women to men was larger in the Demo
cratic party than in the Progressive.
"The victory In Montana Is highly en
couraging; the defeats In tho other States
nro not discouraging," said Mrs. Medlll
McCormlck, who, ns chairman of tho Con
gressional Committee of tho Natlona
Amerlcnn Woman's Suffrage Association,
hns headed the campaign. "Our success
in Montana is duo to our flno organiza
tion In that State. Lack of organization
Is largely to blame for our failures."
Seven Electoral "Votes Great Victory
for "Cause," Say3 Doctor Shaw.
NEJW YORK, Nov. 5. "Well, wo didn't
get the seven States we wanted, but we
got seven electoral votes," Dr. Anna
Howard Shaw said when the revised re
turns from tho West showed that Mon
tana nnd Nevada had voted "yes" on the
suffrage amendment. (
"Montana has four electoral votes and
Nevada three. That is an addition not
to be despised to the 81 electoral votes
possessed by tho States where women
have tho franchise now. If we've won
Nebraska, and It's an even chanco wo
havo. that means elgljt more electoral
votes. I call our Western campaign a
great victory"
Doctor Shaw declared the time had
coma for suffragists to protect themselves
by "forcing the hand of the nntls" In the
matter of "co-operation between the
antls and tho liquor Interests." Tho Na
tional American Woman Suffrage Asso
ciation, she said, was hot on tho trail
of tho antls henceforth.
Mrs. Arthur .Murray Dodge bet $10 wo
man suffrage would be defeated In Now
York State next year by 1E0.0W votes. Tho
anti-suffrage victories In the Western
States were not alone responsible for Mrs.
Dodge's optimism. She said she had
talked with many political leaders of New
Ydrk State, who placed the anti-suffrage
majority at 850,000. The question will
come before the voters of New York at
the regular election next November.
Mrs. Dodge, as president of the na
tional association, replied to the state
ments of suffrage leaders that the anti
suffrage association had accepted money
from liquor Interests to help their cam
paign. "I'd rather have suffrage come In this
country than defeat It by such means,"

General Villa Moves Army
Into Aguascalientes,
and Constitutionalist Chief
Flees With Cabinet.
Moving his army Into the neutral city of
Aguas Callentes, General Francisco Villa
established this placo yesterday as the
temporary capital of Mexico. Delegates
to the peace conference who represented
Carranza were arrested by Villa's orders
and are held prisoners. Martial law has
beon declared and Villa troops control the
city and dominate tho delegates to the
Ordered by tho convention to carry out
Its orders. Villa began yesterday tho
movement of troops to the south to
establish General Gulterrez as provisional
President In the permanent capital. The
troop movement already has resulted In
skirmishes with Carranza forces moving
to the north to Invado Villa territory,
several sharp fights having occurred.
EL PASO, Tex., Nov. 5 General Car
ranza has fled from Mexico City, taking
with him the Government funds and ac
companied by his Cabinet, according to
information received here last night from
Mexico City. Carranza, the reports say,

city of Puebla and has gathered there all
troops he could persuade to accompany
htm General Gonzales and General Jesus
Carranza, two of General Carranza's
chlof commanders, whose armies Jointly
number 60,000 men, aro In Puebla with
Carranza, and the city is being fortified
for a slego. Villa has 20,000 men moving
on Puebla,
In a speech mado Sunday by Carranza
at Puebla, ho said:
"If the chiefs of tho army should
abandon me In this case, as a representa
tive of the army, I will go Into exile.
But should they support me, as I con
fidently expoot they will, I will fight to
the blttor end."

Mexican soldiers today fired a number of
Bhots across the river on tho Americans.
Tho American troops were engaged In
maneuvers with ball cartridges, and the
Mexicans said that shots fell on the Mex

turned. WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. The Insistence
of Carranza and various political factions
in Mexico that American troops be with
drawn from Vera Cruz and the demana
of this Government for positive guaran
tees before the city Is evacuated, have
brought about almost a deadlock in the
Mexican situation.
It was made clear in Administration
quarters yesterday that Carranza has
beon given a certain length of time in
which to meet the demands for guar
antees. Acting Secretary of State Lans
ing would give no hint as to the time,
but tt is known that the latest note, the
third on the subject, was Intended to
force the realization on Carranza that
this Government will temporize with him
no longer.
General Funston has Informed the War
Department that reports from Mexico
City are that there Is "anti-American
agitation" there.
