third-class cities in the state?nearly fifty
Cities in all. The state offices to be filled by the votes of qualified citiiens are those of governor, lieutenant governor, auditor general and secretary of internal affairs. In addition to these, thirty-two representatives in Congress. twenty-five state senators and 207 members of the state house of representatives will be voted for. In the state the greatest interest turn* on the election of a governor and the state senators, who will have a voice In choosing a successor to United Slates Senator Penrofe. ?e cnnnHr>? outside in uwtny ui inc ijvvu?..? of Philadelphia the :ontest for other ofllces has been overshadowed by the gubernatorial conflict, but the voters of the districts art- waging bitter and determined battles against the election of candidates to senate known to be Penrose supporters. I The great issue in the state was the Capitol extravagance, and this and the cry against organization control have been the arguments universally advanced by the fusionlsts against the election of Stuart, the republican candidate for governor. In this city the Issue haa been the district attorneyship. While a city treasurer anil reclster of wills aHd four Judges are to foe elected here, the entire tight centers on the contest between D. Clarence Glbbony and Samuel Kolan. The tight for state offices has been of less Interest here than for county officers, and the result will probably show that the heads of the ticket have fallen behind the county candidates. Besides voting for the county ahd state officers, Fhiladelphlarui are called upon to pass upon the authorization of a permanent loan of |13,5W,000. This loan is required to complete the filtration system and other Dubllc Improvements. NEW MEMBERS SECUBED. Progress of the Jobbers and Shippers' Association.

Then the landlord obtained a decree for possession of the premises of Mr. Mulligan, who Immediately barricaded the house, built a wall along the back of the premises topped with barbed wire, heavily shuttered the windows and re-enforced them with nandbags and put In extra doors. The fort was garrisoned with retays of men. who at first numbered about fifty, and the.se kept a sharp lookout for the police and bailiffs. The display of tonx was apparently too much for the authorities, mho made no attempt to storm the citadel. A few weeks ago Mr. Mulligan obtained another house, and fund* for the defease (laving run low the garrison was withdrawn and the fort was shut up. Yesterday morning a special train arrived at Leggaginny Crossing, near Armagh, with a very strong force of police and bailiffs.

Tlie landlord, who arrived in Cavan during the day. was unable to obtain a conveyance to take him to Arva. HEARST VOTE BIG FACTOR III GREAT WINDYJITY FIGHT Illinois Managers Very Much Up \ in the Air.

There is a heavy vote in Illinois, ^ considering it is an off year.

The democrats are counting on getting ' three state senators out of Cook ^ county. Senator Shelby M. Cullom's return is conceded by all par- * ties, democrats, republicans and pro- J hibitionists alike. The municipal , bench elections in Chicago are regarded as particularly important, and a strong fight is being made to ^ get good men, so that party lines are almost obliterated. 5 Special Dispatch to The Star. i' PHIPAfin Til MAifomhar <5 * v 41UIC1UUCI U. A. at lJ ICttU" A ers were astir early this morning and from f reports coming in a heavy vote will be cast F In Illinois, especially in Cook county. A where the campaign has been bitter and a \ where more public Interest has been dis- s played than in any "off year" for a long a time. Votes are being polled throughout ii the state for state treaslrer, superintendent a Df public Instruction, four trustees of the 0 state university, twenty-flve congressmen, J twenty-seven state senators. 153 represent- ^ itives in the general assembly, county offi- '' :ers and circuit judges In the first and ' fourth districts. In Cook county, besides the regular :ounty officers, votes are being cast for a :hree sanitary district trustees. In Chicago 11 [he contest Is for chief justice of municipal e courts and twenty-Eeven judges of munlci- t pal courts. t It is admitted that a vast amount of a scratching Is being done, hence party man- P igers are greatly at sea.

" The democrats are depending almost entirely for their gains in the senate upon ?ook county. Here they expect to elect three senators in place of republicans. s In the country districts the democrats ngjre on gaining two seats, both of them in * iistricts which are considered safely repub- 1 lean by the members of the state commit- s tee. S In Chicago th? municipal bench elections b sasiry rank as the most prominent feature >f the election. The new bench Is to be the F 'poor man's court," and the necessity of o llling it with the best material available a las aroused the voters to intense interest. 1 Party lines are thus partially obliterated. o When It comes to figuring out the prob- t ible Hearst vote in Cook county the man- b igers of the regular parties are in the air. s rhe fight over municipal judges is what 1* ompllcates the situation. John J. Sanberg, f soothsayer of the repubrtcans, estimates the a Hearst league poll at 22,000; Secretary a Tansey of the democrats computes it at h to.000. The few conservatives at rtearat leadquarters say It will be 50,000. In Ken- r ?ral i.ie speculation is that the vote on the r Hearst county ticket wlH be about 30,000, r ind that some of the Hearst judicial nomllees may poll 40,000. * F Slander by Telephone.

Another lay lie along a bough flattened at full ength; but here the tell-tale ears are more asily silhouetted. Still another may rouch drawn up in a fork; and here the hing to look for is the fluffy tip of that litle signal .ag which always works and vaves and jerks and signals so bravely vhen danger is not In the air. Or one may < rattier himself up in a bunch to imitate , . knot or knob; and here he can very well ell when you have spied him out.

Restoring a Rubens Ceiling. ''rom tbe London Tribune. Provision has been made in next year's stimates for a sum of ?2,000 toward the ost of cleaning and restoring the famous tubens celling in the old banqueting hall if Whitehall Palace. The work, which has jecome urgent, is to be carried out on next iummer. These valuable paintings have been reouched upon several occasions?once by .'ipriani, who received exactly ?2.000 for lis labors. Rubens, who was commissioned jy Charles I to undertake the work, revived as his reward ?4.000, or ?10 a yard, t was intended originally that Vandyke should have painted the sides of this beauJful apartment with a history of the Order II uie uarirr. An Interesting fact In connection with ;he ceiling Is that Rubens' canvases are ittached by leather bands, so that their renoval for purposes of restoration is a mater of little or no difficulty.

The Hne of cleavage Is very plain between the classes that favor the two candidates, hut the probable numerical division is mora difficult to estimate. Tammany and Crooked Work. One feature of the usual New Tork city election is absent this year. Tammany la not doing its usual amount of crooked work at the polls. Whether It is that Tammany does not want to risk any of its people by committing frauds for a candidate It does not love at best, or whether Tammany has reformed, all politicians are commenting on the fact that the usual preparations are not being made. Tammany does not have to do uiv crook ed work for Its- own local candidates, their safety being assured by the withdrawal of the Independence League tickets, and Tammany does not see anything In risking a Jail entence for the head of the ticket.

I feel that our chances up the state are very bright, thanks to your efforts and the efforts of our friends. " "There is only one possible danger, and that is that an attempt may be made to count us out up the state as they counted us out in this city last fall. I urge you to take extraordinary precaution to prevent repeating, and particularly miscounting.

NEW YORK, November C.?Not in years have such a wholesale number of arrests been made in the first few hours of an election day In this city as were made this morning. Tho operators at police headquarters were kept busy from the minute the polls opened taking records of arrests sent In from the various precinct station houses. Nearly all of those arrested were ciiaigeu wnn megai voting, ana tne maJorlty were arrested without warrants, althought more than 10,000 warrants had been obtained by the superintendent of elections. Up to 10 o'clock 115 men had been taken Into custoday, charged with either illegal registration or voting. The nmnber of arrests up to 11:45 had been swelled to 140. > Despite the unprecedented number of arrests, Chief Inspector Cartright said this morning that It was as quiet an election as he had even seen and that the police were experiencing little trouble at the voting placed. The greatest number of arrests were made in the districts below 14th street, which is Big Tim Sullivan's bailiwick. A number of arrests were also made in Per:ival E. Nagle's district in Harlem. No dis arder attended the making of the arrests and those arrested went without resistance in jnost cases to the station houses. As soon as the police courts were opened, at ! o'clock, the pilscntrs were arraigned and the L.'.agist-ai.es d:?< harged most of the men arrosteJ. A Bird Freas. Vrom the Outlug Magazine. Back on the dry prairies the sickle-trilled curlew, the marbled godwit, the upland or field plover and the kildeer nested: but this group of three?the avocet, wlllet and Wilson's phalarope?form a. distinct unity? shore birds which nest beside the grassy cools In this southern section of the northvest shore-bird paradise. Of this trinity of odd characters?bird Freaks, we might call them?which we are following up, the bright and shining light Is certainly the avocet. Its very appearance Is distinguished, and instantly arrests attention. The plumage is of sharply contrasted black and white, with yellowish buff on head and neck; the legs are like stilts, while the bill, too. Is long and slender, curving up in a way to make ?ne wonder how the creature can eat. Yhe first pair which I ever saw. on the xhore of a Dakota lake, made a profound impression on me by their appearance and graceful movements as they ran jauntily about pursuing some sort of insect prey. The saying that what Is meat to one may be poison to another is well exernpiled In the avocet. For our part, we have to exercise great care in that western country to avoid drinking alkaline water, whereas the avocet dislikes the insipid stuff which we extol as pure. Seemingly it is as objectionable to him as food without salt is to us. Hence we have to travel well west toward the Bad Lands of Dakota before we find the water sufficiently seasoned to suit our dainty epicure and to induce him to remain for the summer. Even the most unsavory mud hole, which is too bad for most of the other birds. Is not without attraction for that craver of strong condiments. Best Fur Coat Collars. Correspondence Pittsburg Dispatch. A Broadway furrier was taking his stock out of the moth-proof cold storage room today. It came forth coated with glistening white frost. But there was one beautiful skin that, though Just as stiff as any of the others, had no frost on it. "It Is early to ta'.k about furs," said the dealer, "but I want you to look at this skin. It is the kind that the richest Russians have their overcoat collars made of. It Is a sea otter's skin, and It is so expensive that often one coat collar of it will cost S300. It is unauestion ably the best kind in the world to make coat collars of. Why? Look at this one and you'll see. All my other skins are covered with frost, while on this fur no frost whatever appears. And that's the reason soa otter skins make thfe best collars." Dress of Chinese Girl Students. From the Sooth China Post. Chinese girl students are no longer to be allowed to dress as they please.

Little "lilies" accustomed to loose "pants," long jacket and wabbly shoes are now, by order of trial august uuu> un WHru Ui euuuHLluitt to don a "physical exercise" costume, after which they will appear In the class room In suitable attire for ordinary school wear.

"With the battle of the ballots waging all over Uncle Sam's domains today the fact was brought home to the folks of the District of Columbia with emphasis that they have no vote. But there Is nothing to prevent them from talking politics, and such they proceeded to do rather vigorously, from early morning. The pot of politics boiled right merrily In many places, but nowhere more energetically than In front of The Star's bulletin board. Assembled there in groups wer" white men and colored ones; tall men and short ones; fat and slim, old and young; republicans, democrats, and cv*rn mugwumps wno nave Held true to their faith since the days of James G. Blaine and Grover Cleveland. The men talked politics and smoked cigars and chewed tobacco and became vociferous at times. The announcement on the bulletin board was a magnet to which their eyes were riveted. They would read the bulletin and then discuss it. Then read It again. "Hearst says he will get a majority of 200,000 in Greater New York," a tall, nervous and spectacled individual read aloud from The Star bulletin. Then turning to the crowd lie remarked: "I wonder if he really means it." "Yes, he means every word of it, and I've got three green dollars here as says "he speaks the truth, and I'll bet 'em even." a short, muscular fellow In the garb of a son of toll replied. "Hughes will beat him out of his boots," a colored man who stood near by sang out. "You ain't in this," the workingman replied, waving his three "one-spots" in the air. "This election- is up north, not down south." Going and Coming. And so It went, the crowd going and coming?an ever changing of faces and forms?a veritable panorama of humanity. At the noon lunch hour, when the clerks from the Post Office Department flocked about The Star bulletin board, the discussion waxed warm. "I'm for Hearst, even if I am a republican," said one of Uncle Sam's per. manipulators. "I always side with tho under dog in a fight, and I Mlpro tho 1 has been heaped upon him wlii bring about a revulsion of feeling In his behalf that will elect him." "There is no doubt about Hearst being the under dog in the New York fight," a tall, soldierly man remarked with significant emphasis as he glared at the post office clerk and then passed along. The bulletin board in front of The Star building was an object of great interest today and held large audiences trom the moment the first bulletin was posted. The great white screens that were put up today will, it is believed, be faced tonight by one of the largest street audiences that was ever assembled here. The interest in the outcome in New York is intense. It has raUSA^ almost JLC miioh PTPltamont OB e? presidential contest. The congressional elections in the states are also of interest, particularly because of the part organized labor played in them. There will be big crowds on the streets tonight Is the prediction of knowing ones, and The Star has arranged to present to the interested ones the latest and quickest and most reliable information obtainable from everywhere. At Government Printery. The printers In the government printing office have been manifesting great interest today in the outcome in New York particularly, and many of them are champions of the cause of William Randolph Hearst, it is said. At the noon hour they congregated on the sidewalks about the big printery and talked politics Incessantly until the "tooting" of the great whistle admonished them It tt'ac timft to rptnrn tn vnrlr Tha fo/?t that James L. Feeney, president of the bookbinders' union, and other Washington labor leaders are In the Empire state with their sleeves rolled up and working for Hearst's election. It Is said, caused added Interest in the outcome there today. In the executive departments it Is said very little work was accomplished in some divisions owing to the Interest that Is taken' in the battl-e royal that is on today lii th? states. Many of the clerks and others have gone to their homes to vote. Those who did not go are on the qui vlve of expectancy. Prof. Edward B. Garrlott, the weether forecaster, Informed a Star reporter this afternoon that the prediction for fine election day weather made yesterday had been "It Is a beautiful day practically over the entire country," he added. "The skies are fair, the sun Is shining, and conditions are balmy. Tomorrow will be about the same." What Tuberculin Is. From Farming. Tuberculin is the result of many experiments to obtain a curative antitoxin, or serum, for tuberculosis. It Is a product of the growth of the tubercle organism In artificial cultures, but it la a perfecUy harmless product when properly used. It will neither cure nor cause the disease to nrnnfl in an affected animal; neither will it injure a healthy one In any way. In skilled hands It is almost Infallible and with ordinary judgment the errors are only a few per cent. In Pennsylvania 4,000 animals that had given characteristic reactions were slaughtered and examined and the presence of the disease was demonstrated in all but eight. O Ye Tears! From Harper'i Weekly. The president of one of the well-known collegeB tells this story of one of his professors of chemistry. It seems that the professor and his wife had not agreed upon some domestic quesj tion, the professor asserting that his means would not warrant the expense Involved. His wife bad used all her powers of persuasion without avail, and at last resorted [to the final feminine expedient?a flood of tears.

KNIFING OFPEAARE FEATURE OF THE ELECTION ABOUND CUMBERLAND. ???. i Special Dispatch to The Star. CUMBERLAND, Md.. November 6.-The 1 election today Is the quietest In the history of this city. The voting Is slow, and It la very probable that the vote will be light. I In precinct No. 1, of ward No. <1, the home 1 of Representative George A. Pearre and exSenator Wellington, as well as Mr. Lloyd I.owndes, but elghty-flve votes had been polled at noon out of a total of 500. Not a worker was to be seen In the vicinity of the polls, and there was no evidence whatever that an election was in progress. This being a.t the court house, there had always heretofore been a crowd about the polls, the voting Is slow In the mining region. Notwithstanding this, the republican committee says that It has made arrange- < ments to get out a full vote. i Postmaster WIHiam Pearre, brother of , Representative George A. Pearre, and a member of the state central committee, says that he expects from 1,800 to 2.000 majority In this county. He is confident of such a < rasult because of the democratic support ( which is being accorded his brother. The Dick following at Lonaconing offered to give odds last nigt-.i. that Pearre would < not receive over 800 majority In the county, i They are knlflnjc Pearre today, but this , will be more than offset by democratic votes. Tho Pearre people said today that they did not look for the votes of Mr. Lloyd Lowndes and his immediate following. Is ft Bough less Fight. Practically no money Is being used. The only expenditure Is for hacks. The democrat* have no money at alL It Is known that In one republican district where the majority is over 100. but $10 were allowed I | for election purposes. I ( There being: but one name to count upon 1 a ticket, It Is assured that the result will j be known very early. The Pearre people declare that the publication of a private letter by the democratic committee, which Mr. Pearre had written to David E. Dick, had acted as a boomerang. The democratic committee had waited on Col. Pearre and threatened to publish the letter if he, Pearre, used the charge that his opponent, Mr. Spe?sard, was an lnfldel. Mr. Pearre said he had not Intended to use the charge against Spessard at all, although he had It ready for mailing, but when this threat was made he determined to act as he had originally planned, and the charge was sent out after the curt retort to the democratic-committee: "I'm going to run my campaign, and you can run yours as you see flt." Col. Pearre was much angered by the publication of the confidential letter which he wrote Mr. Dick. He said, however, he did nothing to retract, and If the public indorsed such methods, he would be very much surprised. c Baby's Traveling Hammock. r From Good Housekeeping. 1 When traveling with a baby In a sleeping r car insure a good night's rest for your- J self and the baby, not to mention your fellow travelers, by putting him to sleep In the little hammock which is to be found in t the berth. This procedure is practicable ^ for all Infants under one year of age and 4 is the only absolutely safe sleeping place . for the baby. Provide yourself in advance with a piece of cotton rope two feet in ' length; with this one end of the hammock is to be made fast to the lower end of the e chain or cable by which the upper berth Is <i suspended, the other end of the hammock is left on the hook from which it usually I hangs. The hammock Is thus suspended H1 -j crrvn q 11 v nnrnsn thA hprth: now nil t in two pillows end to end. These serve the ( double purpose of spreader and bedding. If the hammock Is strung tightly It will swing clear of the person sleeping below and the rougher the road the more the F hammock swings and the sounder the baby sleeps. f * II The Bee Cure.

DECISION WILL BE LATE Build Probably Governor by Bednccd ^ Plurality. MOHAN IS A STRONG FACTOB District Attorney Making a Great Run and His Friends Claim He Will JM si acted. There is a bitter fight on in Mas- * sachusetts. Moran, the ultra-radical, is giving Gov. Curtis Guild a great fight. It will probably be late before anything like definite returns are in, for the vote is almost as large as in a presidential year. Rut it is thought a fair idea will be obtainable as soon as returns are in from some of the principal towns. It is 1 ilfflV- tllf.f C^itv rillilrl will ed, but even his friends think that it will be by a materially reduced plurality. Every effort is being made to get out the vote, and the weather is favorable. Democratic Chairman Feeney claims Moran's election, and says he thinks there is no doubt of the return of L. Gerry Brown as lieutenant governor. Special Dispatch to The Star. BOSTON, Mass., November 6.?Under cloudless skies the voters of Massachusetts went to the polls today to settle with the ballot the bitterest state tight Jinee the days of Benjamin Butler. Regardless of the personality, the record, the beliefs and the methods of District Attorney John B. Moran, movt poll(Irlany nn/i nln?A f nl liia'Art nf svents are willing to admit that he set is strenuous and as erratic a pace as the men with the New Orleans experience. I'here was never more bitterness or wild guessing even in the days of Butler than imong the men who oast their ballots tolay. and that wondering spirit will be maintained until hopes rise Into fulfillment or sink into disappointment. Which way the hopes will travel won't be known until the bulletin boards have been stared it for some time, according to some prophets, though the early returns from :yplcal towns and cities are expected to 'urnish a pretty safe criterion for tigurng out the final results. Guild is Well Up. Indications, however, point to the rejection of Gov. Guild by a reduced ?lu allty. Apparently there Is unprecedented Merest In the election, and there is every evidence that an exceedingly large vote vill be cast. The republican managers have nade preparations as never before, to get >ut the boasted reserve republican vote, ["own and city chairmen have Iwen appealed to by letter "and telegram to get :he voters to the polls, and the republican nanagers rather expect a presidential vote. !n 1904, the last presidential year, the total rote for governor was 440,107; last year the .otal vote for governor was .'<91.321. The republicans place the plurality for Juild at more than 50,000, with Draper unnlng well up with the ticket. Chairman Feeney of the democratic statt :ommltte' and the -doran manager? have lot lost faith. They claim that Moran will vin, and profess to believe that there is 10 doubt as to the election of E.

"We so'd in 1005," says a Boston manuacturer, "350,000 dozen shovels and deIvered them to railroads, mining companies ind other large users. One might think so nany shovels would be enough for a time, jut this year our sales will amount to 100,000 dozen, or a little less than 5,000,0<i0 ihovels." Every phase of activity entering Into tlm inbounded prosperity of the country has >een commented upon until It would seem hat there is no feature entirely new, yet he production of shovels, certainly a firm ndex. has not been much thought about. five million shovels must mean great labor n Improvement and preparation for new ailroad and other building, and much new health taken out of the earth. Monetary ecords, new showings In imports and eiiorts, manufacturing totals not before cached, and new high bank clearings hav.11 been considered as representative of the rospertty now enjoyed, yet nothing could it so truly significant as the Illustration lere afforded. This is the year of the man ?lth the shovel. Nothing more basic could >e found, and an apt and expressive name or (he n??rlod would be the year of the ,000,000 shovels. The Chaperon.

But even a'lowing for the act that the preacher has not spared his olors in order to "make his picture lently striking, one knows perfectly well hat far too much latitude Is given to girls tot only In country houses but In town as veil.
