THB DISPATCJH FOUNDIUD 1BS0. WHOLE NUMBER 17,701, RICHMOND, VA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1908. PRICE TWO CENTS. s s Final Returns Give Him Eighty-One Over Parsons. GOVERNOR MAKES INDIGNANT DfiNIAL Dcclarcs Rnmors of His Lack of Loyalty to Saunders Are False. Records Show That Dan? ville and Pittsyl vania Stood Pat. INDIONANT at the suggeatlon of ru mora that he or any of hls polltlca'. frlendH In tho Flfth Uiatrlcl had been dlsloyal to Judge Saunders In hla llght for re-election tO Congress. Governor Swanson yesterday entered an emphatic denlal, deciarln'g that any one who orlglnated or gnve currency to auch a rumor was gullty of uttcr Ing a eontemptlblp folsehood. "I wrote Judge Saunders early ln the campaign," aaid Hia _xcellency, "that I waa ready and wllllng to asslst hlm ln every possible manner, nnd I contrlbuted of both my lime and means to thla end. I peraonally know that my closest friends ln the district dld all they could for the electlon of Judge Saundcra, and that I a?d they are graflfled at hla success.' Another rumor vvulch haa oeen golng the rounda la to the effeot that should .ludge Saunders liave failcd of re-elec tion this year. the Governor would probably enter the race in 1910, in tho hope of redecmlng the dlstrlct for tho Democrata. It la known, by those who are on the inaide at the Kxecutivo 3Jopartment that tho Governor Is not a candidate for Congress at tho end of hla term aa Chlef Maglatrate of the Ktate, and that he has never given u irioment'a conalderatlon to the subject. lt seema now fairly well aettled that Judge Saunders has won by the nar row majority of eighty-one over Par aona. Clalm* llav. Shlfted. The clalma made a- to who has prob? ably won have shlfted since last night. -.t that tlme the friends of Senator Panona stoutly conter.ded that he waa elected by forty-four majority. Over hla own algnature the Senator v.lred yesterday: "Flftli District in doubt. Le.is than scvonty-nve elther way." Judge Saunders, who haa always eltilmed that ho was the wlnner, tetll thla telegram: "I om elected. JEverythlng ln way of reports to contrury Is ldle non M nse." The followlng apeclal recelved by Tlio Tlmes-Diapatvh from Danville last night Indicutes that the matter 18 tuUled. and that Judge Saunders has beon ro-elacted: "Koturna from the Flfth Dlstrlct, which aro apparently correct, and as nearly authentlu aa lt la possible to obtuiu, show that Judge Saunders has won out in the congresslonal race over hls Republlcan opponent, J. il. I'arsons, by a majority of eighty-one votes. The returna for some reaaon havo evldently been held back from Carroll and Gray ton countlea. Information whlch has beon aocured here and by Judge Saun dera glvo these two countlea to Par aona by a total majority of 1,217, whlch, added to the 300 majority he aecured ln Patrick, makes a total of 1.533. "Theao majorltlea are offset, how aver, by the returns from Danvllla, l^ittsylvanla, Henry and Franklln countlea, whlch went Democratic. Kaunders'a majorttles in- this clty and ln the three countlea named above are aa follows: Danville, 797; Plttaylvanla, 496; Franklln, 284;, and Henry, _8; making hla total majorltlea 1,604, as agalnst 1,523 for Parsons." Governor- Feople in Line. A gontleman who ia very close to Uovernor Swanson, and who ls thor oughly famlllar with conditions in the Flfth Dlstrlct, pointed out last night that the total vote of Danville and Plttaylvanla county for Judge Saund era this year was 33 ln excess of that secured by hlm ln the clty and county in 1906, thua ahowlng that he could not have been knlted ln that sectlon of the dlatrict. Here aro the flgures reproduced from the records: 1906 vote for Saundera, 1,267; 1908 voto for Saunders, 1,300. It is true, accorditig to this gentleman, that since the last election a largo number of voters for? merly in tha county have been taken into the clty by annexutlon, thus ac countlng for the increased majority of Judge Saunders ln Danville and a re ductlon ln Plttaylvanla. The losses therefore, ln the vlew of the Governor's frlenda, and whlch aro borne out by the record whlch brought Judgo Saunders so near the danger llne, were sustalned ln Franklln, which ls tho home of tho Congressman, and ln the Republican end of the district, composed of Carroll, Grnyson and Pat? rick. Judge Saunders carrled Henry coun? ty in 1906 by forty-six majority, and this tlme ho secured only twenty-eight. He iost Carrol] in 1906 by 464, and this tlme by about 700. He Iost Grayson ln 1606 by only 234, and this time hy about 500. ln 190R Patrick went only ilfteen agalnst hlm, and last Tuesday he ran 306 behind Parsons. In hls own county of Franklln, whlch Governoi Swanson carrled for Congress in 3904 by 681 over Stovall, Republican, and where. In 1906, Judge Saunders got h majority of 339 over Slmmons, he gol only 284 over Parsons on Tuesday. Where I.oaaen Were. lt wlll thus be seen that the only terrltory in the district where Judge Saunders made gains in the' recent electlon is that embraced ln Plttsyl vania and the clty of Danville, where . tbe Governor and hla ciosest political friends realde. ln all the others h? fell behind his vote ln 1906, when hc was elected by 202 majority over Slm mons, Floyd, now ln tho Slxth Dls? trlct, but then ln the flfth, giving a majority of 707 agalnst hlm. lt U pointed out that tho dlstrlct has lous boen considered doubtful, and that li has. frertuently gono Kspubllean Ir Kub'ematorial and leglsiatlve olactloiiH Here are the flgurea for tlie varloiu /Contlnued ou Se~c-_a71Pa_"o7) REPUBLICAN CONGRESS llut Itelurii* Indlenle Thnl Demoernl* (Jnlri.-.l \'lne Member*, CKTICAOO, November *>.?The Repu_ iieiin party will, accordlng to preaent retnrnn from all con_T-ialon_1 dletrlct* ln tha Knited Btatea, control the next IIouho of itepreaontutlvei hy a m? .lorltv of 41,.

JURY ADVISES MERCY IN CASE OF CURTIS Conspiracy Charge Is Dismissed, but Other Two Counts Are p'ound True, Both Men Being Remanded to the Tombs Without Bail ?Their Wives in Court. NEW YORK, November 5.? Charles "W. Mor.-ie, untll a year agu a domlnant flgure in the world of flnance, and Alfred H. Curtla, former presldent of the Natlona*l Bank of North Amerlca, were found guilty to-nlght lu the Crlminal Branch of tho Unlted States Clrcult Court on chtvrgea of misappli? cation of funds and falslfylng the books of the bank. There was al60 the addltlonal charge of conapiracy agalnst the prlsoners, but tho Jury acqultted the men on this count. Judge Hough refused to ontertaln a motlon for ball, and commltted tho two bankers to the Tombs prison. Judge Hough sald that he would hear any rnotions tho lawyera for the prls? oners dealre to make. Go to i' r 1 ? ,.?. The Federal statutun provido a minl imim penalty of flve years' imprlson ment for falalfylng the books of a bank, and a penalty of two years' im prisonment and |5,000 flne, or both, for misapplication of funds. No alternativo but iniprlsonment ls provlded for convtctlon on tho chargo of falslfylng tho booka of a bank. The ma-Imum penalty on this charge ls ten yeara' Imprlsonment. Tho Jury recommended clemency for Mr. Curtis. Tho aceno in the cuurl room was a dramatlc one. Mrs. Morse and .Mra. Curtis had remalned ln the court room nearly the entire day awaiting the verdict. Once when the Jury returned to the court room to recelve instructions on the manner in which tho conapiracy charge should be considered, Mrs. Morse broke down and sobbed. A large crowd hurrled into the court room to hear tlie verdict. Foreman John Eldcr read the ver? dict. Mr. Morse and Mr. Curtis stood before tlie Jury- white Mr. Elder was reaoThg the verdict, and their wlves -sat near them, leaning forward in teii.-r-e attltudes to catch every word. "We have agreed upon a- verdict ln the case of both defendants," sald the foreman, in a subdut-d volce. "On the charge ot conspiracy we find them not gui)ty." A look of relief came to the faces of the prisoners und their wives, but it only lasted a moment, for Mr. Eldei contlnued : "On the charge of tha misapplication of the funds of the bank, we find both defendants guilty. On the chargo ol making faiae entriea in the books ot the bank, we find both defendants guilty. "ln the case of Alfred II. Curtis, the jury wlshes to make a strong recom mendation to tho mercy of the court.' Mra. Curtla Solm. A stifled sob of relief escaped Mrs Curtis as she heard the recommonda tlon. Mr. Curtis took the verdict lik> a atoic, but Morse was unablo to con ceal the dlsappointment ha felt, whili his wife showed no signs of omotion There wus a inonientary hush in tht courtroom aher the verdict had beei read. This was broken by a buzz o cxclted conversatlon in the courtroom and a few minutes later the lawyen for the defendants were making thi customary rnotions for a new trial, foi bail and for permlssion to tako an ap peal to the Clrcult Court of Appeals After saylng he would hear the mo tlons to-morrow morning when tln prisoners are arralgned before him ti be sentenced. Judge Hough then dis mlssed tho Jury. Mr. Morso and Mr Curtis were accompanled as far as tln Tombs Prison by their wlves. There has been wide Interest in thi trlals of Charles W. Morse and Alfrei H. Curtis on charges growing out o tho failure of tho Natlonal Bank o North Americn. It was brought out li the testlmony that Morse had mad< largo loans from the bank through th. so-called "dummles," and that Presi dent Curtis had enabled him to do so Tho money thus obtained wai! used ti t'lnance the Morso ice pools aud steam shlp operatlojts.

Thla was aet forth in the followlng terms: Arbltratr .Matter. "No aggruvation of tho present con ilict with Germany ia expected in olll cial clrclea, where a settlement, honor? able to both countrles, ia hoped for lf the dlspositlon of the German govern? ment is as concillatory as that of France. An understandlng could be rea'ched by whlch tho two countrles, with mutual expresslons of regret over tho Casablanca Incidont, could refer tlio whole, affair to arbltratlon. But lt ls evldent that this is the only conces sion Franco can make, and. the rofusal of the Cabinet to canuure the ofHcors and soldlers concerned must be con? sidered as dellnlte." lt was rumored here iato to-day that Prlnce Von Rndolin, tho German am l.assador, haa been recalled.
