The great battle between Russo-Roumnnian forces and Mackcnsen's troops in the Dobrudja for possession of the bridge across the Danube at Ccrna voda continues. Advices from Bu charest, Petrograd, and Berlin em phasize this as the most important operation of the day on any front. Occupation of the Dunarcav sta tion two miles west of Ccrnavoda npp'ears to have given the Czar's armies at least a temporary ad vantage in their efforts to envelop General Mackcnsen's left flank, resting on the Danube. Military experts here say a Slav success at this point would place the Teutons at great disadvantage in Dobrudja. BRINGS UP BIG GUNS. Russians rp icnortcd In stroiic force lj nbout Ccrnavoda.

INTRODUCING JEAiNNETTE Pet name of the jubilant suffragists for the Montana dynamo of energy who is to be the FIRST CONGRESSWOMAN By J. R. HILDEBRAND. "Jeannette is- the best stump speaker in Montana, can dance like a boarding school girl, and, believe, me, she will lead those Congressmen a merry little two-step when she comes to Washington." Thus spoke one prominent suffrage leader when she heard today that Miss Jeannette Rankin, of Missoula, Mont., had cap tured the Montana election to the Ho.use of Representatives. "They're mighty proud of her out there," said Paul Bar den, of the State Department, who lives in Missoula. "I have heard her speak, and she is one of the most fluent talkers I ever listened to. "She speaks anywhere and as often as she gets the chance. During that campaign one could run across a crowd almost any time listening to her talk. She made addresses to groups on the streets, at country stores, at railway station platforms and everywhere else she got the chance." Suffragists Glad. Suffragists in Washington are elated over her coming to Congress, not only because the election of n woman to tho House means a victory for suffrage, but because it wag Miss Ilankln who won It.

AN EVEN BREAK SO FAR Present Indications Are That F6ur Independent Votes Will Hold Control. With Republicans, and Democrats both claiming the House bv a narrow vote, hundreds of House employes who hold office by the grace of tho Democratic regime are on the anxious seat. Control of the House means much to a lorge armv of Democratic office holders and to a large army of Re publicans who would like to be In office. For the Ins nnd the outs, therefore, the close contest over the House has a painful Intensity of Interest. It will apparently take official counts In several districts to decldo the result definitely. Four May Hold Balance. Four members, neither Republlcas nor Democrats, may hold the balance of power In the House which will como Into existence next March 4. They are: ' Meyer London, of New York, Socialist. Thomas D. Schall, of Minnesota, Pro gressive. W. P. Martin, of Ioultana, Progres sive protectionist. A. F. Fuller, of Massachusetts, Inde pendent. So close Is the division of the Hoti'c between Republicans and Democrats that the two are about evenly divide I. Though both sides profess to have won. the official count In close dlstilcts ui have to be awaited. Neither in Majority.

That London, who Is a Socialist, wilt line up with the Demorrats Is expected. But what the other three will do l doubtful, and they are quite as likely io align with the ..epubllcans. Mr. Schall Is the blind member of the House, hut is known as a man of ablllt . Woods Hopeful. Chairman Frank Woods, of the Re publican Congressional committee. Is hopeful that the Republicans will control by a narrow margin. The best unofficial figures at pres ent show that the Democrats have L'lB members and the Republicans 215. with the Kw Mexico result undecided nnd with the balance of power In the hands of four who do not belong to either party. The Democrats have not given up hope of re-electing Thomas J. Scully In the Third New Jersey district, where Robert Carson, Republican, was chonse by a close vote on the face of the returns. The Democrats will soek to seat Scully by an of ficial count. Two close Pennsylvania districts, the Twenty-first and Thirty-second, add to the uncertainty of Jthe situation- , . Soldiers to Decide. The Thirty-second is the one rep resented by Barchfcld. In the Twen-ty-nrst, there Is a close race between W. K. Tobias. Democrat, nnd C. H. Rowland, Republican. Rowland Is ahead, but the soldiers' vote will probably decide It. ..... ,, The Brltt district In North Carolina Is close and his opponents will try to beat him on a recount. ...... The situation Is no close that It Is likely to be some days before It can be ald positively which party will control the House. .... . . A number of contests to be brought before the next House will add to the complications. Didn't Have to Know President "By Golly, It's Hughes or Wilson," Said Ignatz, Asking Citizenship. CHICAGO.

None, however, has thus far been re- .reived from Charles Evans Hughes, the d created Kepuullcan -candidate. Seeictary Tumulty, who returned to Washington Innt night, was at his desk at the executive offices at an early hour. Although Jubilant over the outcome, he showed plainly the effects of the strain. He has lost weight to A noticeable extent. He Is one of the few Democratic leaders, who, In face of the apparently cer tain returns last riicsuav nignt in dicating the election of .Mr. Hughes, refused to concede It. Refused to Believe Defeat. For thirty-odd hours he hung over ihi! telegraph wlie nt Asbury Park during Tuesday night and Wednesday, and did not retire until his confidence was vindicated. And during all that time the Preslent did not Inquire as to the leturns more than twlc,c. With the result of the b.illutlng now largct a mutter pf the past. Interest naturally turns to what If nnv changes the President will make In his Cabi net, and to the approaching session of Congress. While the coming session will find the Democrats with their pres ent mujnritles In both branches, it is anticipated that efforts will be made by the 1'iesldenl to put through ns much legislation uu possible befoie the new Congress conies Into being. Changes Arc Discussed. While there Is nothing whatever at piesent to Justify a prediction that the President will change the make up of tils Cabinet. It' Is pointed out In political circles that changes would not be unusual at the beginning of the second terms of an Administra tion, und also that whatever nolltleal obligations may have dictated the composition of the original Cabinet are no lunger Dinaing. In other words. It is suggested, from a purely political standpoint, the re sults of Tuesday's election would en title the West, which elected the President, to far more consideration than, for example. Now York, which, though it now has three Cabinet offi cers Secretaries Lansing, McAdoo, nnd Redfleld went overwhelmingly for Hughes. Supported Wilson. The number of Texans two In tho piesent Cabinet may be attributed In part to the consistent and loyal support of the Texas delegation for Mr. Wilson In the Baltimore convention In 1912. Po litically speaking. It Is pointed out. the President could now with perfect fair ness consider these obligations as hav ing been paid off, and give one or two of tho posts now held by Texans to ono or two prominent Democrats of the Northwest. 1 Attorney General Gregory, who Is from Texas, has been roported on sev eral occasions as Intending to resign, and similar rumors have recently been (Continued on Second Page.)

STILL IS 10 ADMIT DEFEAT Leaders Assert Shift in 8,000 Ballots on Official Count Might Turn Election. TOTAL VOTE IS 16,704,114 Errors Found in Early Tabula tion of Returns on Biggest Poll in History. NEW YORK, Nov. 11. Charles Evans Hughes will let his telegram of congratulations ' to 'Woodrow Wilson await the official count of the votes in California, New Mex ico, North Dakota, New Hampshire, and possibly one or two other States. If the official count confirms the Wilson victory apparent now, it if the Republican nominee's wish and he is the one, who, being main ly concerned, has the final say that there be no contest or court proceedings. The reason the Republicans st'll are unwilling to concede defeat is that in the five States whose, vote is still incomplete a change of 8,000 votes might mean shift in the tide of victory from Wilson to Hughes WILLCOX STANDS PAT. National Republican Chairman Will cox still "stood pat" today on h s statement of yesterday yielding noth ing to the Democrats. "W are getting a number of charges and suggestions ofTrtfud," h ndded. "These have come In lotteiM and telegrams, mostly anonymou?) We have followed the plan of turn ing them over to State chairmen ! Investigation. The national commute" Itself Is making no Investigation; we are simply waiting for final returns Wlllcox pointed out ,lth partlcul.f emphasis tho posslbllttyvof mistakes ' i the count lather than laying any stic on fraud charges.

The President and Mr. Hughes, the defeated Republican candidate for the Presidency, polled In tho aggregat 16.704,114 votes, the largest number ever recorded In the history of tho country. Of these. President Wllso i got 8,563.713 and Mr. Hughes S.160,401 The President, therefore, obtained not only a majority of' at least thli teen votes In the Electoral College but received a majority of over 400.000 of the popular vote of the country. Tho President polled 2.270.694 more votes Tuesday than ho did four yeai'x ngo. Mr. Hughes obtained :o5,9.1S more votes than Mr. Taft and Colonel Roosevelt combined In the three-cornered contest that year. , Hughes now has 20 votes In the Elec toral College about which there Is llttlR doubt. The Republicans figure Minne sota will alaolM his. bilnglng his total to 255. That Is eleven leas than the 3Hi majority required In the Electoral Col lege. If a recount should show New Hamp shire Republican, bringing the Repub lican total to 239, and Hughes should gain soveral of California's electoral votes on a split of electors, possible undor the State laws, ho would a'-rlv at the place where North Dakota's i"i votes, or New Mexico's three, ! counted and found Republican, might put him over Instead of Wilson. Conferences Still On. The endless conferences of Repuhllcan managers were still on today. There wero a few recriminations as what the victorious Democrats facetiously re ferred to as the "wako" proceeded at tho Republican headquarters, but for tho most part the leaders were plan ning reorganisation of the party and beginning already to look forward to 1620. One thing that gave cause for Jo woa that the Democratic majority In the House of Representatives has been swept away. Wilson no longer has complete domination in tho national legislature. No Outward Signs. Outwnrdly, at least. Hughes Isn't showing any signs of disappointment over Indications that ho has just lost out on tho biggest Job In America, j The man who said, two days before tha election, "If I am elected, as I expect to be," and said It with con viction ringing In hi voice, was Just as Importurbably unconcerned as when, a short six monthn ago. he sat on tho bench of the Supreme Court of tha United States In judicial calm.
