Butte, Nov . 12.—The Colorado smelter, the oldest smelter in Butte, which was built in the seventies, closed today and there is a probabil ity that it will never be started again. The principal cause of the closing of the smelter was on account of the shutdown of the Gagnon mine, which took place about three months ago. Since then the smelter has been run ning on custom ore.

Governor Toole the Only Candidate Who Escaped Republican Landslide. Butte , Nov. 12.—Chairman Mantle this morning issued this statement on the result of the election: "Later returns from Carbon, Valley, Dawson and Custer counties have served to increase the republican ma jorities to a very considerable extent. There are still a few remaining pre cincts to be heard from, all of which will slightly increase the figures stated below. The figures include the official count from Missoula and one or two other counties. "The pluralities are: Roosevelt 12, 000, Dixon 6,000." "The candidates on the republican state ticket will have at least the fol lowing pluralities: Yoder 750, Brant ley 2300, Athey 1100, Galen 2700, Rice 1100, Cunningham 1400, Harmon 1250 "The vote between King and Norris for lieutenant governor is very close and will take an official count to de termine. Toole's apparent majority is 7500. The returns now show the re publicans will have 40 members of the lower house and 16 members of the state senate. It is now certain that there will be a majority of at least nine and probably 11 on joint ballot iu the legislature." Chairman Frank of the democratic state central committee stated that he saw no reason to recede from the posi tion taken by him yesterday. "The only trouble is," said he, "that we have to wait a little longer for returns from some of the precints. That causes the situation to be still undecided. But I remember that iu 1889 we had to wait fully 10 days be fore the result was actually decided. "All I can say is that we have Toole and Norris absolutely sure, and McRae we think is likewise compara tively safe. We further figure that we have the best of the argument when it comes to secretary of state, treas urer and auditor. "I would be very glad of a recount," continued Mr. Frank. "The returns here iu the county show that the re publicans voted the full state ;.nd county ticket, getting their full vote in on both alike. That was not the case with the democrats. "There were about 16,000 votes cast here in the county. Of these we see that our highest man, Toole, received 13,000. What we now would like to know is what became of the other 3,000. Were they lost in the shullle, or what? A recount may help us to determine that question. So we would be very glad and pleased to see a recount. Things might then be changed con siderably, and that in our favor." A California Murder Mystery. Auburn , Cal., Nov. 12.—It is now known that Julius Weber, his wife, their 19-year-old daughter Bertha and their son Paul, aged 14, were murder ed by an unknown assassin, who set lire to the home in an effort to cover up his crime.

Iloth Parties Claim Maryland. Baltimore , Md., Nov. 12.—The board of election supervisors of Bal timore city and of 22counties in Mary land have reported the official count of the ballots cast last Tuesday. The result indicates that seven democrats and one republican elector were elec ted.

Worst Storm In Sixteen Vears. New York , Nov. 14.—The storm which swept through the Atlantic states to the guif yesterday and last night, developing into a gale of hurri caue force as it moved up, resulted in the most complete tie-up of wire com munication that the east lias exper ienced since the memorable snowstorm of 1888, disarranged train schedules, paralyzed trolley lines aud piled sev eral wrecks along the coast. A down pour of rain aud heavy snow, which accompanied the storm, added to the destructive force of the gale.
