the childish, frivolous and querulous
complaints of any man, old woman
or child including judges and edi
, tors whose inordinate vanity con
. trols their every action, I have no
i objection; and I certainly will stip
' ulate that any reputable ,Jawyer,
I . preferably Republican, be appointed
special- state's attorney to prosecute
' the case arising from the issuance of
such a warrant, providing that I
have the opportunity of passing upon
' ' his name.

Washington, Nov. 15. The subject
- of bomb plots and similar breaches
of neutrality, having practically been
buried for several months, state de
partment officials today were giving
considerable thought to the import
ance attached to such outrages ia
the firitish reply to the American
protest against England's blacklist
policy, made public today. There
having been no recent outbreaks of
any consequence by enemies of the
allies in this country ,Nthe British pur
pose in laying stress on the subject
has proved puzzling.
A sharp rejoinder is not unlikely,
j some officials believe.
Aside from the assertions regard
' irjg this alleged failure of the United
, States government to suppress such
activities, the British note is largely
a, reiteration of the British conten
( tion that the blacklist policy, being
- directed entirely to the governing of
the trading operations of British sub
jects, is entirely within British rights.

San Francisco, Nov. 15. With the
official count in from more than two-thirds-of
the counties in California,
President Wilson had increased his
plurality over Gov. Hughes by 286
votes on the face of completed coun
ty totals tabulated by the United
Press today.
These figures are based solely on
returns from counties which have
completed their counts and does not
include any of the larger counties of
the state. In the official count in Los
Angeles county, so far, Hughes has
shown a net gain of 100 votes, while
in San Francisco county Wilson's net
gain has been 11. In nearly all of
the counties as yet unreported the
changes from the official votes are so
slight as to be almost neglible.
The United Press is basing its fig
ures in virtually all instances on the
high Republican and low Democratic
elector in each county, believing this
will, more nearly approximate the
minimum Democratic plurality and
will indicate whether there is a pos
sibility of a split in the state's elec
toral vote.
