Striking CaaiaariBoae.
Wilson's plurality over Taxt is 67.041.
over Roosevelt. 48.555. His majority
wer Taft and Roosevelt combined is
45.063. In other words, the Democratic j
majority over the combined Republican
nnd Progressive elements Is greater
than their vote.
The vote received by Wilson is
greater than that given William Jen?
nings Bryan In 1908 by 7.S&6. The com?
bined vote of Taft and Roosevelt this
year Is 7.50? fewer than that of Mr.
Taft four years ago.
The vote for Deoa shows a big in?
crease, growing from SSI in 190? to i-'O
in 1012. That for Chafln. Prohibitionist,
has about a corresponding loss, from
1,111 four years ago tu 709 this year.
It Is worthy of note that the com

that hour they were still out. and had
been for four hours.
While Gibson sat m bis cell await?

the courthouse for some time in the
in the courtroom at the time sat a1
detectiv? armed with a warrant, on
which Gibson would be rearrested In
case he was acquitted of the murder
charge. This warrant charged Gibson
with the larceny in 1S10 of $17.000
from Hugh Trainer, an aged awning
maker and a former client of the pris?
oner. This warrant was baaed on
the indictment found by the grand
jury in Ne'er York County recently.
Indications were at midnight that
the Jury would shortly be locked up
for the night. The court eliminated
manslaughter from its charge to-day,
and said that one of three verdicts be
returned, murder In the first degree,
second degree or acquittal.
In summing up for the State, Isadore
Wasser-Vogel told the jurors that
there were "no two ways of looking
at the evidence."
At great length he proceeded with a

explosion, which wrecked the dry

Company's plant this afternoon, killed
i between eight and twelve workmen.
; Injured twenty-seven others, several
of whom will die. and caused about
llOO.ouo property damage.
Uncertainty as to the number of
dead was caused by inability of firemen
to search the burning r .ins because of
continued minor explosions. Kd ward
Conrad, dep-ty in the Lake County
coroner's office, was authority for th?
statement thai tweive men at least had
been trapped in the wrecked build?
Nearly all of the workmen killed or
Injured were Polish. Lithuanian or
'Austrian, and they were on the com

, by names. This further Increased the

efforts to arrive at a correct death

AH of the injured were coated with

New York. November 20-?Brooklyn's
j East River water front was the scone
! late to-day of the most serious explo?
sion and fire that that section has
known for years. Fifteen men were
I removed to hospitals, suffering from
; buru and Injuries from which a num?
ber may die. Several persons on the
scene at the time were missing to?
night, but later reports discredited
! earlier reports that several lives had
j been lost. The area of three blocks
was swept and a loss of nearly Ji -
i 000.000 caused.
The fire started with a aeries of ex
' plosions of chemicals on the ground
floor of the five-story building of tne
Union Sulphur Company, in the WI1
llamsburg section. Of the seventy men
at work In the building, a dosen on
the main floor were hurled In every
direction. Four other explosions fol
I lowed, and the du 11 ding was soon en?
veloped in the weird blue flames ot
burning sulphur. Workers who had
escaped from other entrances fought
their way through the sulphur fumes
to the rescue of the unfortunates, and
were themselves overcome.
The flames swept down on a large
hay and grain warehouse and licked
so close to the plants of the Brooklyn
Oas Company aad the Pratt and Stand?

rible explosions was momentarily fear?
ed. While the heat blistered the gas

died here ear.y to-day at the end Of
a long Hi Buss, lesuitlng from continued

Washington home, where he died at
6:2o o'clock this morning. For over
five years Senator Kayner had beep a

The death of Senator Rayner creates

Owlng to this narrow margin of eon
trol of the Senate by the Democrats,
the death of Senator Rayner and the
substitution of a Republican for a Dem?
ocrat may have a direct bearing on
the legislative results of the special
session next spring.
In the senatorial primaries to he I
held throughout the State of Mary?
land next fall the voters will he called
en to indicate their preference not only
for a successor to Senator Rayner. but
also for a successor to Senator John
Walter Smith, Democrat, whose term
ends March 4. 1115. ?
Senator Rayner was one of the strong
figures of the Senate. He had been
a member of that body for almost
eight years, and was one of Its strong?
est debaters and a recognized authority
on constitutional law.
Before he entered the Senats he had
attained a national reputation because
of his rigorous conduct of the late
Admiral Schley's case before the naval
court of inquiry that investigated the
action of American officers in t;ie battle
with Admiral Cervera's Spanish fleet.
Senator Rayaer was a native of Bal-1
tlmore and was sixty-two years old.'
He was a member of the Maryland
Legislature when twenty-eight years
old and served three terms in the
national House of Representatives In
the period from 188? to 1892. He was ,
elected to the t'nltr d States Senate in !
19*4. after having served a four-year*
term as Attorney-General of Maryland.'
As a member of the Committees on
Foreign Relatiors and the Judiciary;
Senator Rayner devoted especial at-,
tnntlon during the last few years te ;
America's foreign problems and son- j
stltatlonal and legal questions He {
was a strong advocate of the abroga- i
tion of the treaty with Russia be- '
because of that country's discrtmlna- j
tion against passports presented by
American Jews, and exercised a marked
Influence la getting the Senate to la

room aad went to their hotel for sup?

that a verdict had been reached. Judge
Quinn. it was declared, had been In?
formed of the report, but did not alter
his decision not to accept the findings
of tns Jury to-night. When the Jury j
left the courthouse it had been de- I
liberating five hours.
Officers of the court, attorneys Inter?

of the accused remained about tb?

hopes for a reception of a verdict were
unrewarded. Scores of rumors as to
the nature of the finding were cir?

Judge Quinn might open court at an
unusually early hour to-morrow to re?

London. November 25.?The extreme
anxiety manifested by all the European
governments to deny reports of war-.
like preparations and to represent th*
political situation as peaceful and sat?
isfactory, in Itself indicates on how
slender a thread the Issues of peace
and war In Europe now hang.
The danger arises not alone from
the conflicting Interests of Austria.
Servla and other powers, but from
the possibility that Turkey, following
the traditional policy of profiting by
the embroilment of the great powers,
may adopt an Irreconcilable attitude
in the peace negotiations.

tentiaries met to-day. nothing la known
yet?not even whether an armistice
has been arranged. There appears ta
be a suspension of operations at the
Tchatalja lines, apparently by tacit
consent rather than by formal agree?
The semiofficial Bulgarian newspaper
Mir editorially voices the governmental
irritation at Turkey's dilatory methods
I of negotiation, and accuses the Porte
ief deliberately nominating delegates
j from remote points ta order to gain
j time. This probably refers to Osmaa
; Nlxaml Pasha, the ambassador to Ger?
many, who only arrived at Constanti?
nople from Berlin to-day.
Ia the diplomatic field the most
important reports are that Servia de?
clines to reply to the Austrian de?
mands until the war la concluded, and
; that Germany has not undertaken to
: mediate between Austria and Russia.
The news that Servla Is throwing
j further obstacles In the way of the
; Austrian representative In search of
j Prochaska, the Austrian consul st Pns
I rend. Is another disquieting feature.
