The returns from the western pre cincts, where McDonald is strongest, will not get in until tomorrow. There Is every reason to believe here that Hursum's majority in the county of Socorro w'ill not be over 300. The democratic county ticket will undoubtedly be elected.

HANKOW PRESENTS SCENE OF DEATH RUIN FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE HOMELESS Two-Thirds of Chinese City in Ashes; Looting Occurs; Pekin Still Loyal But May Fail Any Time. IBv Marnlnc .Varaal SiHMlal I 4 Wtre.1 Hankow, Nov. 6. (Via Wu llu) Sow 8. The city of Hankow has been destroyed by nrrt vr two thirds of its extent la In ashes. The lowest estimate of the lose is $50,000. 000. Four hundred thousand per sons are destitute. Hundreds of half burned bodies lie amonj the ruins. Many of them are the bodies of wo men and children. The customs house, the postofTlee and the American missions have been spared. The city has been looted, the Imperialists taking a hand in the pil laging. Imperialist officers tried to check the work and executed a num ber of the soldiers. Refugees were deprived of their loot In entering the British concessions, carloads of valu able furs, ailks and jewelry being seized. It Is suggested that th Red Cross receive the proceeds. On Friday afternoon the consuls appealed to the imperialists to cense burning the town. A proclamation which was issued Immediately de. clared that the rebels were respon sible for the fires and ordered that these be checked. The following day new fires started In various quarters. The David Hill Memorial school for tho Mind, connected with Iho Wcs leyan mission, has been looted, while tho mission property In Wu Chang, which Is held by the lifcurgents, has been protected. j On November S. thori was consid erable gunnery practice, , beginning before daylight. The Imperialist bat tery behind Hankow moved to the southwest In belated fulfillment of the promise to nhlft the line of fire from the concessions. This battery and another stationed on the plains enenged In a heavy duel wtth Han Yan Hill. The Wu Chang forts used powder occasionally and Joined in the defense of Han Tan. A few hundred revolutionists are still In Hankow. Rifle men on oppo site sides of the I Inn river fought all day Saturday anil there has been sim ilar fighting today, but steadily de creasing In volume. There Is much open revolutionary talk among the Imperialists. Foreigners who have not been given the opportunity of witnessing the engagements except at a distance are hearing horrifying stories of brutality. The imperialists have hanged men and, falling to strangle them, tortured them to death, prod ded them with bayonets, or crushed them to death with stones. The out rages against women can not be told. Red Cross bearprs have been killed or wounded. Soldiers on both How Albuquerque City Voted on State Ticket Por Governor. .McDonald, 1.646; Bursum, 770; majority, 876. Lieutenant Ciiicroor.

Ferret societies, it la reported, are gaining control In Sze Chuan. The moba at Klu Klung are violent. The revolutionaries captuted a British tug which was proceeding tip the river with two lighters of coal. It was suspected that the coat was destined for Admiral Sah'i fleet. A British gunboat made a command for the captured boats, which were after wards restored to the revolutionists. Two thousand trained soldiers have arrived from the l'o Yang district at Kiang SI. A night or two ago the forts sunk an Imperial gunboat w hich was seeking to pass down the river accompanied by torpedo boats. The latter escaped.

The meeting terminated without a deci sion. EX1IJJ1 RElxmMI.lt is IlEll RX1XO TO CHINA Toklo, Nov. 8. Liang Chi Uhlan, the noted Chinese reformer anil edi tor, who has been living in exile In Japun for some years, left here today for Pekin. It Is believed he Is re turning to China with the Intention of taking a prominent part In the re for movement. " PIXAXCIERS XOT TO MAKE UX AT PRPSEXT Paris, ' Nov. 8. Reports of the Americ an, French and English bank ers Interested in the Chinese currency reform loan, at a meeting here today unanimously decided that the situa tion in China was critical and accord ingly It was decided that no action be taken in furthering the loan at present. J. P. Morgan, Jr., attended the conference. STATE DEPARTMENT REItHITS VERY MEAGER Washington, Nov. 8. Iteports to the state department today from Its agents In China were meager. The consul at Amoy cabled that order had been restored and that conditions were normal. The consul at Canton reported it was understood that the province of Kang Lung, In which Canton is located will go over to the rebels Friday, thereby following the example of Kwnng SI. Admiral Murdock, commanding the Asiatic fleet, now at Shanghai, has reported tho dispatch of American warships to various Chlneso reports to look after American Interests. C. D. James, a civil engineer sent last recently to China to study flood con ditions' In an effort to effect a rem edy, today cabled an appeal for Im mediate funds to the American Red Cross headquarters to relieve the famine. From Mr. Jameson's messages It appears that a new committee has been formed and that It has pledged itself to act under his advice to curb the flood waters and reclaim the lands. Although the American Red Cross Issued an appeal on Saturday for funds to bo used In aiding the suffer ers from war, not one contribution had been received for this purpose up to the close of business tonight. No reason could be advanced by the of ficials for this apathetic condition. NOTED EXILE EX ROUTE TO PEKIN; ALSO GEKERAL Pekin, Nov. 8. Two men are on the way to Pekin, whose coming Is anxiously awaited. One of the men is I Iang fill Chiao, the noted exile, who Is considered the most influential Chinaman of letters. He Is believed to be returning here from Japan to take nn active part in the work of reform. The other Is General Chains Sliao Tsen, commander of the Lanohau troops, w ho rorced promises from the administration of a constitutional gov eminent. General Chang has refused appoint ment as imperial envoy to conciliate the people of the north, on the ground that his troops desired to remain un der his command, and he Is on his way to the ca.'dtal at the summons of the government, probably lor the pur pose or a broad discussion of the sit uation with the administration, If that, is possible. There is no question of the serious ness of events In Pekin. The foreign residents for the most part are amply protected, but thou sands of natives are terror-stricken and fear tho approach of Chang Shao Tsen, who may not come alone. In the national assembly today the members asked what measures had beJoJrjrJo (Continued on Pat" 2, t'ol. 5.) TWELVE HUNDRED MAJORITY FOR M DONALD III BERNALILLO; TICKET DUNS Complete Returns Show That Albuquerque and the ' County Give Overwhelming Vote For Democratic-Progressive Re publican Ticket From Top to Bottom; Voters Register An other Crushing Rebuke to Francisco Hubbell and No Man On His Ticket Has a Look-in? Average Majority Will Be Over a Thousand. Practically complete returns of the election from the precincts of iter nullllo county show that William C. McDonald received a majority of slightly over twelve hundred and that the entire state, county and legisla tive ticket runs well along with the head of the ticket. It was :n un precedented victory for the people and for the forces of good govern ment; a crushing rebuke tor the third or fourth time to Francisco Hubbell and his political methods and a tremendous vote of conlldence In the county commissioners, the sheriff, and the probate clerk who were can didates to succeed themselves. Tho majorities for Herbert F. Itaynolds for Judge and M. V. Vigil lor district attorney, an well as for the legisla tive candidates rank along with the llgures on the state ticket and neither the liursum nor the Hubbell ticket got u look In at ny stage of the game. The result has more than JtiHlllled ' the confident claims of County Chairman V. H. (illlcnwater and of the Morning Journal and af fords tho final demonstration of the fact that no ticket, however present able .nominated under the auspices of Francisco Hubbell can hope to make any showing before tho voters of this county. 1 It is slgnitlcunt of tho conlldence of the people In the honesty and ability of Jesus Romero, re- elected sheriff, that bis majority was ono of Urn largest and Hint not only dl.l his op ponent receive a decisive walloping In the city but had no chance nt all In the outside precincts. Romero's big vir'ory comes In the face of the fai t thai ho. was pimtlc ally the only man on the democratic progressive ticket upon whom a bit ter tight was centered by Mr. Hubbell and his newspaper. Atanacio Montoya, elected super intendent of schools, also ran nobly In the city In spite of the Tact that the Hubbellltles were conlldent that McCollum would defeat him Insldo the corporate limits. Frank W. Clancy, candidate for at torney general, ran rather better than the remainder of the slate ticket, polling 1.97S votes, as against the vote of 2,627 Tor McC.ill, the bit ter's majority being only 654, The democrats and progressives "ate 'em up" all along the line, Fred Heyn for assessor making a particularly strong showing both In city and county. There Is little distinction, however, to he made among the county candi dates ns every one had a margin n mile wide and in nn case was there anything like a close race. The average majority for the pen. pie's ticket Is well over a thousand. The victory was won In spite of the fact that the opposition spent money like water. It Is estimated that close to fifty thousand dollars was spent during the latter part of the cam paign and the no M desperate effort was made to stem a tide of public sentiment that was absolutely Irre ftlstable. Every attempt at fraud or repeating was promptly nailed and it was probably the fairest election ever held In Bernalillo county, Following Is the result In the conn, ty In detail: Por Governor W. C.
