Ksxt 140. Naturally, campaign man
agers are figuring on the States which
will fa.: Into ths Democratic column
this year, although they refuse to go
as far as William Jennings Bryan,
who lias declared that Wilson will
carry every State in th; Union. They
realize that talk of that sort is
idiotic Th .-re are ?31 votes in the
electoral college, and. as staled, the
winner must poll 266.
Opposition Could I site.
Out of (fee r:.as. of Information and
misinformation which has been
prlr.ted about the procedure in the
event that no candidate receives a
majority vote In November, the North
.American Review appears to rave un?
earthed tr.e real facts. The Review says
that If Wilson and Marshall fall to
obtain 266 electoral votes, "there is no
provision In tlM Constitution or
statutes preventing the opposition
electors, who would constitute a ma- :
Jority. from uniting upon and electing ;
either Taft or Roosevelt, or a third
person The liJclihood of their reach- i
ing such an agreement i.-.u.-t b; re- ?
garled. however, under the circum- :
stances as negligible."
The duty would then devolvi upon
the House of Representatives to
"'?. hoose Immfdlately by ballot the

vote anj rhoice being restricted to
M tl?-on. Taft and Roosevelt.

With the House thus divided. Wilson
would have to gain the votes of three
States in order to obtain the requisite
twenty-five, which the North Ameri?
can Review, a Wilson supporter, claims
Is a practical impossibility. The House
then would be unable to elect.

Constitution, wouid be engaged in
choosing a Vice-Preslder.t, choice be?

tors would vote individually instead
of by States, forty-nine votes being re
quired to elect
The Senate is now classified as fol?
lows: Republicans. 50; Democrats. 44;
vacancies. 2. The vacancies will be
filled presumably by the Legislatures
of Colorado and Illinois in January
?Apparently, therefore.'* says the
Review, "the Republicans would have
ene and possibly three more than the
forty-nine required for election of a
Vice-president, who wo-.ld become
President on March 4. This seems to;
mesa that la the event of Wilson fail-;
ing to obtain 2<6 electoral votes.;

Bat It aoes not necessarily mean
that. In the first place. Johnson, on
the Progressive ticket, might run sec?
ond to Wilson in November. Moreover,
the Republican majority la the Senate

Colorado return Republicans, the total

and at the same time notes practical?

cording to a reliable dispatch from
Rome, the Balkan coalition will make
a demand which It will be impossible
for the Porte to accept, namely, that
the reforms be executed under control
of the European powers and the Bal?
kan states, and as a pledge that the
Porte assent to the immediate de?
mobilization of the Turkish lore**.
It is understood that the Porte will
be given until Tuesday to reply. There?
fore, there Is every probability that
general hostilities will be opened be?
fore the week is ended.
A Sofia dispatch reports that the
movement of the Bulgarian army has
already begun. The Montenegrins,
continuing their advance, have cap?
tured Byelopole, an important strate?
gic point on the northwest of Berana, I
after desperate fighting. They are :
now on their way to Sienltza. thirty
miies to the northeast of Byelopole,,
and close to the Servian frontier,
against which they will direct an at?
tack. It Is In this direction that the :
Montenegrins expect to Join hands
with the Servian army when It ad
?susses from the north.

patch to the Standard. TTisaad Pasha'

forcements, raising the garrison from ;
12.000 to 20.000 men. If this news Is
true, the Montenegrins will have a dif - '

Constantinople. October 13.?The ??
preparations for war show the Bal-:
kan allies that Turkey cannot be lnti- 1
midated. The government is acting1
with an aggressiveness calculated to;
bring on hostilities. The embargo of i
Greek ships, the detention of Servian |
ammunition and the seizure of Bul?
garian railway cars all constitute bei- 1
ligerent acts.
Greeks and Bulgarians !n Constant!-,
nople. numbering a thousand or more,
have been subjected to treatment de?
signed to irritate these two nations,
financial considerations figure large?
ly in the attitude of the Turkish gov?
ernment, and practically all of the
many hundreds of Greeks who are re?
turning to Athens are compelled to
pay full taxes to the end of the year
before they are permitted to embark.
Even the crews of Greek ships which
were seized have been haled before
the prefects and made to pay a year's
taxee, as If they were Turkish sub?
jects. Many Greeks have been arrest?
ed on the charge of being desertirur
reservists, and they can procure their
release only by paying the mi'itary
exemption tax.
The government is determined to ex
pell all Bulgarian and Greek subjects
as soon as war is declared, and these
will he transported by some of the
steamers which have been detained for
that purpose. Trouble is possible over
the seizure, as most of the cargoes!
are foreign-owned although the vessels
flew Greek flags and the owners will
claim damages.
The government is requisitioning
the horses owned by foreign residents
and diplomatic representative*. The
various embassies have protected and
notified the Porte that compensation
will be claimed. Several Turkish wo?
men are going to the front to attend
the wounded. This will mark the be?
ginning of a new era for the sex.
A consular telegram reports the kill- j
ing of twelve Bulgarians at Kuprili.,
in Macedonia, bv Turkish soldiers.
Massacres m Macedonia will be an In?
evitable feature of the war. but it is
asserted here that the Turks will not
begin them.

Armada Begins
New York. October 13.?Ensign An?
des Haidley Butler. U. S- N.. appointed
from Louisiana to the United States
Naval Academy, from which he was
graduated last spring, waa drowned in
the Hudson River to-day while re?
turning with three fellow-officers to
his post on the battleship Rhode Is?
land, in the line of the great Atlantic
armada, at ancnor here for presiden?
tial review.
In another accident on the river, six
sailors from the battleship Maine res?
cued eleven persons from drowning.
It Is estimated that 200.000 sight?
seers, many attracted from remote ae?~ '
tions of the country, boarded the larg?
er ships of the fleet, and more than
1.500,000 persons viewed the fleet
from shore during the day and tnis
evening, when the ships were again
The accident in which Ensign But- j
ler lost his life his fellow-officers i
found hard to explain. He and his j
party had spent the night in the city
Ban were on the way back to the ship '
la a small private launch. The little
beat was making headway with diffl- j
culty against the strong tide. When.
still fifty feet from the battleship:
young Butler was seen to step out,
from beneath the canopy and to pitch ,
into the wate?. It ia believed he ]
thougat, mistakenly, that the launch
had a sort of running board outside'
the canopy, as naval launches have,
and that he intended to step on this '
to make preparations for the landing. |
The strong tide carried him down
ar.d under the battleship. One of his
companions dived for him, but waa un- \
able to reach him. and was rescued
with difflcu.ty. Butler's body had not
been recovered at a late hour to-nig at.
Butler was twenty-three years old.
He was popular on board his ship, and
his death is mourned on the Rhode
Island. Reports were .current during
the afternoon that a seaman from the j
Rhode Island was drowned, also, but'
this was declared to be erroneous. j
Malae Sailere Herbes.
The rescue in which sailorT~from |
the battleship Maine figured as heroes
occurred when a small launch, in
which Bernard Bauer and his family
and friends were visiting the ship,
was cut squarely in two by the sharp
bow of the bigger steam launch Vixen,
and the occupants of the small launch,
containing seven men and four wo?
men, were thrown into the water.
The little launch foundered almost im
mediately. Six sailors were on the
Vixen, and they were the first to
plunge ovei the aide to the rescue of
the women. All hands were taken
aboard safely, but not without diffi?
culty, as the tide was running strong.
Aside from the excitement caused
by the day's accidents and the pres?
ence of so many thousands of visitors,
the bluejackets were occupied witn
preparations for the official visit by
th? Secretary of the Navy and the
President and their guests to -morrow.
The only event on the day's program
was the arrival of Secretary Meyer
and his aides, bat as this arrival was
scheduled as ' unofficial." no salutes or
other demonstrations were made when
the secretary bearded the dispatch
boat Dolphin. When he breaks out his
flag at * o'clock to-morrow it will be
greeted by nineteen guns, -signalizing
the start of the great review, the pro?
gram of which has been announcd.
President Taft is expected to make
port c.n the Mayflower Juan about the
time 'he secretary finishes his review,
and wh*n th- President breaks his flag
every shin with guns will boom a
salute. Th- presidential review win

New York. October 13.?In prepara?
tion for their last chance to prevent
the world's series honors from slip?
ping once and for all out of their
hands and into the clutches of the
triumphant Red Sox, the New York
Giants made the most of their oppor?
tunity to rest to-day.
While the National League cham?
pions recognize fully the disadvantage
of the position they occupy with the
series standing three to one in favor
of their Boston rivals, who need only
one game more to clinch the cham?
pionship, not a man of the Giants
would admit to-night that he had lost
hope. John J. McGraw, manager of
?he team, counts on his men to show
in this crisis the lighting they dis?
played several tames during the league
season, when their rivals for pennant
honors had them forced Into a corner. I
"Once more the team is forced down
to the last stand." said McGraw, "and
I am certain the men will put up a
fight that will make their fxjendjs proud
of them."
The intense interest with which the
series has been followed all through
its sensational course has abated some?
what among the Giant followers, with
the dashing on Saturday of their hope
that their favorite would win the game
in Boston and thus even up the series.
Despite this, and in face of the some?
what general conviction that the Bos?
tons had "got the Jump" and were in
a fa'r way to win out. indications to?
night were that another capacity crowd
would be on hand at the Polo Grounds
to-morrow. The Fted r-">x did not ar?
rive from Boston to-night until late,
and neither Manager Jake Stahl nor
Manager McGraw was communicative
on the probable selection of boxmen
for the crucial battle. Marquard. how?
ever, looked to be the logical selection
for the Vew Yorks. Probabilities
pointed to Stahl's pitching Collins, his
left-handed star, who made such an
excellent showing in the tie game of
last Wednesday.

El Paso. Texas. October 13.?Rebels
I late to-day held up a passenger train
150 miles south of this point on the
border, rifled the mall and express
! cars and kidnapped John T. Cameron, a
wealthy stock broker of El Paso. The
train was allowed to proceed south. .
Mr. Cameron was on his way to pur
| chase cattle to be imported into the
; United States. It is believed he is held
either for ransom or to prevent fur?
ther stock shipments from the dis?
tricts held by the rebels. A Mexican
passenger was also held by the rebels
who molested no others, according to
the report.
Opening of the Mexican Railway, af?
ter a lapse of traffic for a week, caused
by destruction of the road by rebels,
makes known large recent losses by
the company. Aside from the destruc?
tion of many trestles on the line, a
train of twenty-four cars of choice
lumber, destined for the United States,
waa burned. The loss of the lumber j
train is estimated at more than $50.000. j
Some significance It attached to the,
departure to the state capital of Gen-1
eral Antonia Aabagio. commander of!
the district. It is understood he has
been recalled to Mexico City. Troops
are on the way to the city of Chihua?
hua to replace Rabagio's troops.

Rawlins. Wyo.. October 13.?A battle,
raged early to-night in the State
penitentiary. Locked inside the walle
with hundreds * of mutinous prisoners,
a few guards fought desperately to
restore order and prevent a wholesale
Camped outside the walls was a force
of citizens heavily armed, ready to
drive back the convicts if they mur?
dered the remaining guards, and made
a rush through the gates. Shouts and
occasional shots told of desperate
fighting within the walls, and it was
rumored that several guards and con?
victs were killed
Another battle was In progress at
the same time In the hills south of
Rawlins between a posse of citizens
and from twenty to forty escaped
Two men were killed in the streets
of Rawlins. one was desperately
wounded and two convicts were re
[ captured, following the escape of from
ten to thirty prisoners this afternoon.
The town is in panic. Frantic tele?
grams were sent to Governor Carey,
now at Sheridan, Imploring; him to
send State troops to protect the citi?
zens. Townspeople barricaded them?
selves in their homes to-night or. heav?
ily armed, patrolled the streets.
Second Outbreak.
The outbreak to-day was the second
within twenty-four houra About 3
\ P. M. yesterday twenty prisoners es?
caped, and nine were recaptured be
: fore s o'clock. At 2:30 o'clock this
; afternoon a party of desperate life
termers overpowered the keeper of th?
cell, took his keys and released their
comrades from their cells. Every
prisoner willing to risk a battle with
the guards made a rush for the gates.
A moment later the citizens of the
town heard a fusillade of shots inside
the walls. A bedlam of shouts and yells
echoed from the prison. A few seconds
later more than a dozen men dashed
down the main street armed with guns
and knives. Holding a few citizens on
the street at bay with revolvers, thejr
charged into a livery barn, holding up
the proprietor and hastily throwing;
saddles anJ bridles on the horses.
A huge negro with a revolver waa
left as guard on the outside. Charles
Strossner. a barber, had heard the com?
motion and came down the street with
a shotgun. The negro shot him through
the head, killing him instantly. At the
sound of the ehot the convicts swarmed
out of the barn, some with stolen
horses and some afoot. A Mexican wan?
tonly stabbed the proprietor in tho
face, severely wonnding him. and a
few seconds later paid for the deed
with his life. Hugh Rogdner. a deputy
sheriff, shot him twice, killing him ale
most instantly.
Dash fee the Hills,
leaving their dvmg comrade, the
convicts made a riash for the rocky
hills south of the town. A party of
penitentiary cC'iards followed In elosa
pursuit, and befoie the bewildered
citizens had had time to form a posse,
pursuers and fugitives had disappear?
ed amonv the hills.
