se HAVANA, November 2.?The sweeping
if- victory of Gen. Mario Menocal and
r" Enrique Jose Varona, the conservative
m candidates for the presidency and vice
nc j presidency, yesterday, and of the rest
he j of the conservative ticket for the
L'k executive offices or" the Cuban republic
*e j appears to be fully confirmed by the re|
turns received from the provinces dur(,f
iiig the night. El Triunfo. the adrnin-s~
istration organ, continues this morning,
however, to claim that Alfredo Zayas,
the liberal candidate, lias been elected.
There is practically no doubt that the
conservatives carried all the provinces,
0f with the possible exception of Matanzas,
but their majorities were not very great,
: and in some places the vote was exis
, tremely close.
rs i The liberals appear to have carried only
,j t a. few municipalities.
n" i Only Serious Trouble.
er 1
,je The only place where there was serious
no t viitlh)c (iurine the election was the small
x* | town of Jiguani, in Oriente province,
he w'ierp :l partisan clash resulted in the
or destruction of the registration lists, and
ys | thus rendered the election impossible.
n" I In Havana one man was shot and killed
i last night during an election dispute, but
i no other conflicts occurred here.
I General confidence is felt that there will
' be no disorder, but as a precautionary
, measure the military occupation of

of Cuba yesterday on the oonservanr

as I to tlie people of the I'nited States today,
as! "My own success is nothing In comhy1
parison to Cuba's demonstration of her
ability to hold taw-abiding elections in
lsl which her disapproval of corrupt govP~

worthy of that confidence which the peo?

south shore and struck with a crash that
smashed her thin hull and threw passengers
and crew into the water.

A scene of jealousy recently occa?ione<
the calling out of a regiment of cavalrt

A well known and wealthy local met

rich and beautiful woman While walkin
on one of the principal streets of tli
city he met an unsuccessful suitor fo
his wife's hand. Hot words passed la?
tween the two men, quickly followed 1>
blows, and revolvers were drawn. Mean

had come up. In all some 2~i0 persons as
sembled around the two disputants. Side
were taken and a regular pitched batti
ensued, arousing the city.
Tite governor turned out the whole po
lice force and directed them to the I'at
tleiiell, but at their appearance the tw
parties joined forces and turned t.e-i
weapons upon the police, who were com
pleteiy routed, leaving two killed and si
wounded on the ground.
Tite 2tUli Infantry Regiment ami the 7f
Cavalry were then called out. Tite soi

after a short resistance scattered them ii
all directions, the troopers riding hard a

Bulls Charge Auto Bus.

A herd of lighting bulls from a cel.1
