Frothinghatn, shall return the Mate to the republican column. other state officers and n new leg- tn In hire, rtlso 1 11 -fie elected. National Issues have played an un usually Important part in the cam paign. The tariff has been a fruitful iheme, In the closing hours. Governor Foss added an interesting issue by asking Suffolk county district attor rey to take action against republican leaders both in and out of the state, including former President Roosevelt, the two Massachusetts senators, re publican cnmmitteeTV and promi nent corporations on tH' ground that the laws if the state prohibiting the attacking of candidates by means of unsigned articles, had been violated. Tie declared also that the republi cans bad been nFklng political contri butions from corporations, which Is spilnst the law. (lovernor Fork claims a victory by fifty thousand while the republican state committee thinks Frothlngham will win liv thirty thousand.

Without so much as attempting to prophesy the result of the municipal elections throughout Ohio on Tuesday, old-line politicians today lay quiet upon their oars. Democratic and republican committeemen, are Insistent, however, that their parties are the only ones in the running, while the socialists Just as determinedly proclaimed that socialism would be the victor. That a larger socialist vote will be polled in practically nil the large cit ies than ever before, is admitted, hut many believe the party will win only minor offices. In Columbus the fight has been bit ter between the three candidates representing the three great parties. Morality and an "open town" formed the basis for the light. ItJIODI". ISLAND CAMPAIGN HAS l!i:i.N HOT (ONTIST Providence. It. I., Nov. ". Tomor row night will end a political cam paign lis strenuous as this stale has witnessed in years. Not only have the large textile manufacturers come out openly to work for the re-election of Governor Adam J. Pothler and other republican candidates, but United States Senator Lippett, himself, it cot ton manufacturer, took t ho slump and campaigned the entire slate. Ithode Island has been unused to seeing Its senators work even for their own election. Govornort Pothler made his cam paign almost entirely on state Issues. He is opposed for re-election by Lew Is A. Waterman, democrat, who last vear reduced the governor's record plurality of 11,7611 in llfOO, to 1,140. , Don't Forget You'll Need the Legislature PFiOPLK OF NKW MKXK'O: While you are voting for W.

Mr. Bursum's TURKEY DEMANDS UNITED STATES E TRANSMITS URGENT NOTE TO STATE DEPARTMENT Ambassador Makes Personal Appeal in Official Capacity and U. S, Government is Ex pected to Declare Position, IBr Morning JournnI Special '.eased Wlr.1 Washington, Nov. b. The so-called Italian barbarities lM Tripoli have been brought officially to the atten tion of the American government In Huch form that some declaration of the position of the state department In the matter is expected. The subject was broached first in the course of n verbal statement by the Turkish ambassador to Acting Secretary of State Adee and later In the day in the shape of a letter. In each case the ambassador who de clared he was acting under cabled In structions from his government, des cribed the acts attributed to the Italian troops and protested in the name of humanity against thP al lege, barbarities Inflicted upon help less women and children and non combatants by the Italian soldiery. Hy order of his government the ambassador appealed to the United States to exert Itself to put a stop to practices that he declared were in plain violation of the rules of war fare and in contravention of The Hague convention to which the I'nited States and Italy are parties. Acting Secretary Adee promised to suhnilt the protest to Secretary Knox. Th0 ambassador's note was bnsd upon a cablegram 'from the Turkish minister for foreign affairs. Supple menting this cable came another from the Turkish foreign office later In the day, which was also transmit ted to the state department. This Is HI Predicament. regarded as of great importance, be cause It formally 'demands interven tion by the United States. It reads as follows: "The Italian atrocities In Tripoli are being confirmed fficlally and from every quarter, I heg'Your Excellency to reiterate the representations, pre scribed in my pr, using telegram U assist upon the necessity of prompt and efficacious Intervention In order to put an end immediately to these Inhuman proceedings." f E Supreme Court of United States Expected to Announce Opin ion in So- Called Colorado Safety Appliance Case, I Br Mnrninf JournnI Bperlnl Imwsl Wlrc l Washington, Nov. 5. Another de cision of far-reaching importance by the supreme court in .regard to the extent of the application of the fed eral safety applianoe laws are looked for tomorrow. When the court took under consid eration the "Alabama Safety Appli ance Case," In which It decided last Monday that the safety appliance laws extend to all cars and to locomo tives on any railroad that Is a high way for Intra-state commerce It also began deliberation on the so-called "Colorado Safety Appliance Case." Many have expressed the belief that a decision In this case will be forthcoming tomorrow. The decision In the Colorado case is expected to tarn on the definition of "interstate commerce" within the meaning of the safety appliance laws. The government Is seeking to enforce the law on the Colorado Northwestern railroad, a new narrow gauge line entirely within the bord ers of Houlder county, Colorado. It Is attempting to apply the law in the ease of a shipment which went on a waybill first from Omaha to Hould er, Col'i . and subsequently after a new waybill was Issued, oil to another point In Colorado. The government claims among other things that unlike the laws re lating to Interstate rates, there Is no restriction on interstate commerce to which the safety appliance laws apply, the acts were restricted to In terstate commerce moving in "con tinuous passage," w hile the safety ap pliance acts apply to Interstate ship ments Hint are not In "continuous pussage." The railroad contends lhat Inter stato commerce is the sumo, under the rate laws as under the safety ap pliance i.its and that the interpreta tion of what is "interstate commerce" already giver In the rate cases must he kivon in the safety appliance case. SEPTUGENERIAN SHOOTS AGED WIFE AND SELF Atlantic, Iowa., Nov. fi. Mrs. J. P. Christopherson. 70 years old, was found today at her home here with four bullet Wounds In her head from shots llrcd by her husband, also a septugenarlan. The shooting fol lowed a family dispute over Mrs. Chrlstopherson's refusal to sign a deed.. The husband shot himself twice In the head, but Is not ' serious condition. HIGHLY IMPORTANT 11 Do You Believe Francisco Hubbell or the Records ? Francisco Hubbell, in a campaign circular, signed by bis cbair niati. Joe Saint, says: - "Mr. Alfred Grunsfcld ami lii.i associates on the county commission raised your county tax rate more than SO cents upon the $100.00 of valuation, and "that in 1911 a further in crease of 10 cents on such valuation has been made." The records show that FRANK IIUmiF.US LAST TAX RATH WAS 27 MILLS. THF 11IG1IKST IX Till. HISTORY OF THF, COUNTY; AT FRF.SKNT IT IS 23.08 MILLS. Ami the taxes are spent on t lie county and in it on Frank Hubbell. Francisco HiibbeH's circular says : "Ihiring this time not a single piece of decent public road has been built, not a single public improvement has been made." Aniono; the pieces of road built are a splendid highway from the University t old Albuquerque, costing $l'.0tK), perfect perman ent work done at the lowest possible figure; two immense fills at each ehd of the I'.arelas bridge; a Alameda, replacing impassable sand, costing $10,000, of which the county paid $6,0(X), done under the supervision of the state engin eer: a snletu id road five miles bridge, dozens of miles nf road elsewhere all permanent and econom ical with every cent accounted for; road tax collected for first time and mad supervisors honest for first time. In addition ten miles of flood proof dykes have been built: a complete survey and classification of the county has been made; two magnificent steel bridges costing nearly $1DO,000 have been elected ; schools have been built, the jail enlarged and repaired and made sanitary, the court bouse repaired, and thousands of dollars spent on other public, improvements. The Hubbell circular says: "The county funds at this time are in deplorable shape; the fund for general covuly purposes is worse than bankrupt, because many bills of our merchants and others re main unpaid." The report of the county treasurer of September SO, the last monthly report, shows cash on hand of over FIGHT Y-SKVLN THOUSAND DOLLARS. It shows in the general fund nearly N1NF, THOUSAND DOL LARS. FVFRY I'ROI'F.RLY AUDITFD HILL HAS LFFX LAID EVERY MONTH IN FULL. When Frank Hubbell went out of power no hills had been paid for one year; not a cent of current expenses had been paid during that time; every county fund was overdrawn and the new commissioners headed by (runsfcld faced the problem of running the county with the county income mortgaged for a year in advance and the sale looted. .The Hubbell circular says : "The court fund is bankrupt. Tor the past three terms it has been impossible to hold a full term of court, because of lack of funds. Livery oilier fund is in equally de plorable condition." THE TREASURER'S REPORT SHOWS OVER $5,000 IN THE COURT FUND; full terms have been held. When Frank Hubbell was kicked out of power no court had been held for a year. The Hubbell circular says: "Thousands of dollars Liave been wasted in the feeding of prisoners in the count v jail." On Mr. Ilnbbeirsown showing. IT COSTS FROM $4,000 TO $6,000 LESS TO FEED THE COUNTY PRISONERS THAN IT DID UNDER 1 IULHELL'S LAST SHERIFF, when Hubbell forced a bill through the legislature making his SHERIFF A PRE FERRED CREDITOR OF THE COUNTY, to whom every avail able cent of income should be given to add to the $10,000 used at that time for "feeding prisoners." There are some more flimsy lies in that circular to which Joseph E. Saint has affixed bis signature as Frank IlubbcH's chairman. The foregoing is enough to show you the methods of Fran cisco Hubbell in his desperate effort to win this county election; on which he has spent now from $50,000 to $75,000. Do you want these accomplished liars to take over the fi nances of your county?
