if. WBEV
Politicians found more possibilities to
day for Cabinet places which are expected
to bp- refilled by Doctor Brumbaugh when
he becomes Governor Brumbaugh next
January. The Governor-elect himself do-
;, dined to discuss his probable appoint
The names of Superior Court Judgo
George It. Orlndy and of former Judgo
Dlmher Deebcr. Who wos chairman of tho
fcrumbatigh QUcens Committee, have
been added to that of Francis Shunk
Brown at! candidates to succeed John C.
Bell as Attorney General. John S. Rilling,
of li'rlo, has also been mentioned In this
connection, In addition to being a possible
successor to Secretary of the Common
wealth Robart S, McAfee, who will prob
ably be replaced.
There Is tittle likelihood that Doctor
Brumbaugh wilt retain John C. Bell as
Attorney General. The Vares, who
strongly supported Doctor Brumbaugh's
candidacy, arc expected to urgo the ap
pointment of their counsel, Francis Shunk
Brown, to succeed Mr. Bell. They al
most prevailed upon Governor Tcncr to
appoint Brown, but Tenor finally named
Mr. Belt, who had tho Ponrose-McNIchol
Tho one thing that Is ngalnst tho prob
ablo appointment of Brown Is tho fact
that Doctor Brumbaugh docs not favor
appointing men who aro active In politics.
Judge Orlady Is regarded as a ntrong
candidate, lie comes from Doctor Brum
baugh's home county, Huntingdon, and Is
& warm personal friend of the Governor
elect. Judge OrladyV term expires In
January, 1916. He has frequently ex
pressed a desire not to leave the bench,
but nevertheless his name Is being men
tioned by many of tho tentative cabinet
makers. Mr. Beeber is regarded as a remote
possibility. As chairman of the Brum
baugh Citizens' Committee he took an
active part In Doctor Brumbaugh's cam
paign. He did this because of friend
ship and warm personal regard for Doctor
Brumbaugh, and It Is said ho would ac
cept the Attorney Generalship if it were
offered to him.
It la generally understood that Gover
nor Toner will make several appointments
as Christmas gifts before he letlrca. Sec
retary of (he Commonwealth McAfee and
Walter N. Galther. Tener's private sec
retary, will probably be appointed to
places on the Public Service Commission,
and the Governor Is also expected to fill
two vacancies In the Judiciary.
There is at present one vacancy In the
commission, caused by the death of Na
thaniel Ewlng. Frank M. Wallace, of
Xrlo, has signified his Intention of re
signing. Galther will probably bo ap
pointed to fill tho present vacancy, and
trK- "vacancy that will result from "Wal
lace's resigning will be kept open by
Tener as a berth for McAfee until Tener
learns whether Doctor Brumbaugh will
reappoint McAfee as Secretary of tho
A vacancy In the Common Pleas Court
III Montgomery County may be filled by
Governor Tener about Christmas time,
when most of his appointments are ex
pected. Strong pressure In brought to bear upon
Governor Tener, however, for the Im
mediate appointment of a successor to
the late Judge A. K. Mellen In the
Municipal Court of Philadelphia. There
arc a dozen candidates for the place.
Raymond MacNellle la being urged by
the Vares, but Representative Thomas
. McNIchol, who has the support of
State Senator McNIchol, is thought to
have tho best chance of landing the
plum. Joseph M. Smith, Howard B.
Lewis and Joseph S MacLaughlln are
also among the candidates for the place.
State Highway Commissioner IS. M.
Blgelow, James E. Roderick, head of
the Department of Mines, and Secre
tary of Agriculture A. B. Crltchfleld
are expected to be the first men to go
from "the hill" when the Governor
elect takes hold of the situation him
self and names his cabinet. No candi
dates are as yet being boomed for any
of these places.
There seems to be no doubt that Dr.
Samuel G. Dixon, head of the Depart
ment of Health; John C. a room e, Su
perintendent of the State Police; John
Price- Jackson, Commissioner of Labor
and Industry; Adjutant General Stew
art, State Superintendent of Schools
Schaeffer and others whose departments
have been doing' good work will be re
tained. Discussion In political circles today also
revolved about the legislative situation
and the probability of Doctor Brumbaugh
having- a. hard fight on his hands after
tie becomes Governor. It Is believed that
the Republican Organization leaders will
try to prevent Doctor Brumbaugh from
forcing a. local option bill through ttfe
legislature, which they control, and that
they will also attempt to Insert amend
ments In some of the other bills that Doc
tor Brumbaugh will urge for passage.

NEW YORK, Nov. 6, Another sensa
tional episode has been added to tho
career of Mrs. Ida von Clausien today.

Magistrate Doesn't Blame Republican
Who "Couldn't Help" Being
That the Republican victory pleased
Magistrate William J. Tracy is one of tho
sincere beliefs of even' person in the
15th and Vine streets police station this
morning, when Richard Carroll, 153J Win
ter street, was given a hearing. Carroll,
accused of disorderly conduct, clung
weakly to the rail and smiled a sickly
smile at Magistrate Tracy. He said he
had been celebrating since Tuesday.
"Judge, your honor," he continued, "I
couldn't help it. The election went my
way and there was nothing else to do.
I hope vou don't send me up, but I
couldn't help it when I saw the RepublU
cans winning."
Magistrate Tracy glared over his desk
at tho shrinking prisoner "I don't blame
you," he growled. "You're discharged."

WASHINGTON, Nov. .-Fedcral quar
antine ngnlnst the foot and mouth disease
of cattle today was extended to toko in
ten States. Experts of the Depart
ment of Agriculture liavo also been
hurried to Mississippi to investigate con
ditions thtrc, although no quarantine
order against that State lias been Issued.
This was the substance of a statement by
Secretary of Agrlculturo Houston.
Fear Is entertnlned by officials of tho
Department of Agrlculturo that babies
and young children in tho districts under
quurnntlno may have become Infected
through tho use of milk from diseased
Director Wharton, of the Bureau of
Information, stated today that bnblei and
oung children are susceptible to the
disease, but although adults may bo at
tacked, cures are effected easily. As
yet the department does not expect to
establish a quarantine of persons in tho
infected-area, as no reports dt the spread
of the dlseaso to humans has yet reached
tho department.
"The greatest care must be exercised
In using milk from infected cows," Direc
tor Wharton asserted todoy. "If local
authorities do not hoc to this, the rate
of Infant mortality will show an alarm
ing Increase."
There was a hopeful aide to tho situa
tion, however, for reports that reached
the department announced tho epidemic

be under control. Cattle In Pennsyl

"If tho dleane Is stamped out soon the
price of moat will not be affected," It was
said at tho Department of Agriculture,
"but If conditions become chronic prices

The State-wide quarantine of cattle,

to the Federal agents In this city. None
would venture a statement as to how loin?
this condition would hold, but it was
pointed out the last cattle quarantine In
this State was In force for six months.
As yet tho HI Inspectors appointed to
examine livestock entering this city have
discovered no traces of the disease, but
reports from West Chester show several

Official in Third Division of
Third Ward Recovers Re
turn Sheets for Court Mak
ing Computation.
Judge Audenried, who, with Judge Da
vis, Is making the official computation
of election returns, reprimanded several
election offlrors today for their failure
to file papers as required by law
Is thn 3d Division of the 3d Ward Su
perintendent Rains had received no ie
turns at ull, and when the Judge of
election was called before the court yes
terday ho said the envelopes containing
the figures were probably locked up In the
ballot box.
When the box was taken to court to
day the election officer appeared with the
envelope In his haudx. "Vou did not
extract that from the ballot box, did
you?" quorltd the Judge, In surprise.
"Oh, no," returned the election of
ficer, "I found them behind tho piano."
"What were you doing with a piano in
the polling place?" asked Judge Auden
ried. The election officer explained the piano
was In his home, where he hud gono
after leaving the polling place. "I re
member now." continued tho election
oftlcer. "that I put the envelope on the
piano, and the paper must have fallen
back of It, for when I went to look for
them, I could not find them, and I did
not remember whether I had put them In
the ballot box or not. Last night I
searched my house and found them."
Judge Audenried accepted tho belated
returns, but told tho election officer that
such carelessner i was avoidable.
In the 6th Division of the, nth Ward,
tho Judge of election, was surprised that
the court had received no returns and
said they were probably locked up In
the ballot box. Judge Audenried In
structed the election officer to Immedi
ately hunt up the minority Inspector of
the division and see If. he had his papers
filled In,
Another division from which there had
been no regular report waa the ad of
the 15th Ward, but the Judge of election
appeared at the bar with what he de
clared was a duplicate of return sheets
The papers were examined carefully by
Judges Audenried and Davis, and the
former then remarked, "Why, where did
you get these extra blanks?"
"From the Commissioner's ofnee," re
plied the election officer.
"But the County Commissioners have
no tight to give out stationary like this,"
declared the Court. "From what did you
make out these returns?"
"From the extra tally kept at the poll
ing place," explained the election otneer.
As the duplicate returns had the sig
nature of all the election officers, they
were allowed to bt filed, but Judge Au
denrled told the Judge It was his busi
ness to sm that the original returns were
not locked up in the ballot box. but
brought to the Prothonotarys ofttee.
When the Court reeumd counting the
vote today the returns from the Tth Ward
were taken up. So far there has been
only sllsbt discrepancies found between
the unofflelal police figures and the official
figures of the Court, and the dlfferennee
have no effect whatever on the result of

LONDON, Nov. 6.-Hllnlre Belloc, writ

the Germnn losses to dato at 1,760,000 men.
"I know," he writes, "that this figure
looks atartllngly large, but tho various
steps by which It Is arrived at are not,
I think, open to criticism. It would bo
easy, by a little manipulation of tho fig
ures, to mako out very much larger

slokness. fatigue and accidents. The
strict German losses In the field men
hit or caught he puts at moro than
"These losses," he writes, "have, al
most up to within tho last two weeks or
so, fallen in thn main upon the trained
troops of the enemy nnd with particular
severity upon his body of officers. This
loss of nearly l,7.V,0OO nt very lenat, which
has already fallen for the most part on

She was inconsolabln when Hovarth

sho began to read. T-ho statement
"Thla city has upward of 7,000,000 In
hand, alt of which money should have
been applied to contracts, as you know
that the prompt and proper expenditure
of this money would not only havo given
000 men work throughout months past,
but that It may be used to glvo this num
bei of men work now.
"Wo understand tho reason that this
money was not committed to contract
was because the executives of tho city
anil Councils were playing potty politics
to tho disgrace of the city and to the
direct Injury of those who ought to bo
working undor appropriations Involving
this sum of J7.000.000. If this miserable
and shameful situation exists today, all
concerned are utterly unfit for public
office and should promptly resign."
"The time has passed," she continued,
"when tho city executives may lny the

City Councils mny 'sass back as taunt

now meet tho demands of the thousands

cupying his armchair, aro-io before Mrs.
Thomas was half through with the state

newspaper men crowded forw-nrd. When
Mrs. Thomas folded her paper tho Maj,or
seemed at a loss for words. Finally he
"I am more than surprised that jou
ladles should come hero nnd read to me
a. paper such as you have read. I repeat
that I am more than surprised, nnd I ask
If this paper was written by you or by
some one else?"
"It was the result of many minds and
many women," said Mrs. Thomas.
'Yes, but where did you get the facts?"
asked the Mayor.
"Krora the statement of the City Con
troller and from the data of the or
ganized Charities Association," said
Mrs. Thomas. "The facts In our petition
and tho statement were not intended to
bo any discredit to you, Mr. Mayor. We
simply know us womon, that the money
is there and should be used for tho un
employed. If we have offended you I
personally tako all responsibility, I will
personally take all the blame."
"I repeat," said tho Mayor, "that I am
surprised that you should come to the
Mayor's office to road such a statement
It Is really offensive. 1 am speaking
Plainly. Mrs. Thomas. You have come

"You women who wanted Information on
the status of tho unemployed should have
come to me personally and I would have
been glod to discuss the matter with you
land give you all the facts regarding my
position In the matter.
"This action which you havo taken this
morning will do more harm to your cause
of suffrage than It can do good to the
unemployed. You don't know what wm
city officials ara doing, I could have told
you, or my directors could have told you,
I have never played politics since I have
been In office. I believe that I personally
am well enough known In Philadelphia
for people to realize that I would not
withhold voluntarily any funds for em
ployment of the Idle. For the last 40 years
I have been active In the work of re

You have been misinformed. You aro un
doubtedly under a misapprehension of

I have spoken plainly to you "
The Mayor then called, on Director Nor
rls. of the Department of Wharves, Docks
and Ferries,' and asked him if he had
anything to say about the statement.
The Director said:
"I am simply here at your request and
I have nothing to say this morning"
"You may be Justified In saying all you
have said to me," said Mrs. Thomas,
"but we women cannot understand why
86,000 men ar out of work."
"That Is what I eauld have explained

American Industries, tho upbuilding at
tho commerco of the country, the" con
struction of a navy that will bo sufficient
to protect the country nnd guard our
commerce, nnd a guaranteed protection
of llfo and property In Mexico, will bo
four of the principal planks In the Re
publican platform at the next general
election, according to Congressman James
n. Mann, of Illinois, Republican leader
In the House.
"The verdict of this election amounts
to a vote of censure on the Democratic
Administration, not only for what It has
done, but for what It has left undone,"
said Congressman Mann.
"Tho Democratic tariff bill has been a
failure. Their treatment of commercial
enterprise has had the result of throttlln
commerce to a largo extent.
"I do not look for very much legisla
tion at Washington next winter. If the
Democrats havo tho House, ns they ap
pear to have, Champ Clark will be tho
next Speaker. The Republicans will not
enter Into any movement to throw him
over for ono of tho blind followers of
Wilson. There has been more or less talk
ot such a plnn In Democratic circles, but
It will not como to pass.
"Tho greatest need of tho country s a
revision of tho tariff. Wo must afford
protection to American industries As a
result of the war In Europe this country
lias tho greatest opportunity that this or
any other -country over had. But If we
tell our pcoplo to go ahead and build fac
tories nnd to make nil manner of things
we must give, them protection that wilt
warrant them In Investing their capital,
if wo nre to build up the industries of this
country on a firm and stable baBls.
"If wo do this, then the development
of the United States will bo something
that but few have imagined and they only
"A largo navy Is, Inevitable as a result
of the European war. Wo must not only
Increase our navy, hut wo must look to
our const defenses and be prepared for
any eventuality. The Republican party
will stur.d pledged to this policy through
and through. The great navy must, come
unless there should be , an agreement
among all tho nations whereby an inter
national court might be established to
which all disputes could be referred. But
I think that Is unlikely at the present
Congressman Mnnn looks for the return
of thoso Republicans who joined the pro
gressive movement.
"Tho Progicsslve party la, dead," he
said. "Of course, the leaders will con
tinue to be kickers, hu the great mass
of thoso who have been. Progressives will
