The Vote of San Francisco Likely to Elect Estee Governor In stead of Budd. J3y the Associated Prjss. : San Francisco, Nov. 16. It is stated that Dan Burns, secretary of the Re publican state central committee, has broken down and is seriously ill in this city. Hard work and worry over the late campaign, together with excessive smoking are said to be the cause of his illness. Although the Republican state cen- tral committee has, as yet, taken no formal 'action Republicans are con sidering among themselves the practica bility of contesting the election of Budd of governor. It has been stated if the Republicans contest the vote in San Francisco county, as ihey have threatened, the Democrats would bring a contest in every other county in the state and it would be months" before the question could be settled. In the meantime Budd would act as governor. In reply to this the Republicans say that if the election is contested all over the state the recount would be made simul taneously by the courts of the various counties and that the recount would be the work of but a few weeks at moet.

Other Shipments Soon to Follow A Demand In Paris for the Yellow Metal. 6; the Associated Press. New York, Nov. 16. The Evening Post's London cable says : The engage ment of 200,0000 in gold for New York as reported in these dispatches, was ab solutely correct.

A further shipment of gold to Amer ica tomorrow or next week is probable, but it will not be a large amount. Gold movements are now watched with in terest here.

Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder Most Perfect Made. Bad State of Affairs in In dian Territory. Lawlessness and Bloodshed on Every Side. Officers Utterly Power less to Restore Order. The Citizens Being of the Crim inal Class Sympathize With and Uphold the Law Breakers. Br the Associated Press. Little Rock, Ark.," Nov. 16. In the opinion of Mai. C. B. Moore, a promi nent attorney of this city, who has just returned from a trip in the Indian ter ritory where the bandit. Bill Cook, and his reckless followers hold Bway, the situation in the territory is indescrib able. V There is pratically ho such thing as an enforcement of law, and bandits are virtually unmolested in their appalling depredations. Major Moore spent several days at Muskogee and Fort Gibson, and he says tb.3 business men and property owners there are panic stricken. Com plete commercial paralysis is the re sult from the reign of lawlessness. Not half the cri-ms committed find space in the newspapers, in fact half has not been told of the terrible con dition of affairs. Organized gangs go from place to place plundering right and left and adding murder to their calendar of crimes when resistance is offered. Marshal Crump and his men are sparing no effort to protect property and life, but they seem to be powerless to check the sway of the bandits. Maj. Moore says the situation is grow ing worse all the time. Crime is congenial to a heavy per centage of the territory's population, hence there is of course strong opposi tion from a certain contingent to a change in the present run of things. A RAPID YOUTH.

The editor is Rev. S. C. Davis, pastor of the First Avenue BaptiEt church, and it isausd from th? press of the W. C. Ferris eompp-ny. It is, as lawyers cay about certain kind of documents, faultless in manner and matter. That is. its typographical appearance is gixxl and its news and ed itorial matter is even better.
