Various Straw Ballots Confuse Voters
and Give Conflicting Estimates.

NEW YOHK. Nov. 4.-The entire
city and State is discussing the out
come of next Tuesday's election. Sel
.lora lias there been a political cam
paign in which greater interest has
been arousod Sn an off year. A Presi
dential election has not been discussed
more widely than this, involving the
election of a Governor of New York
State. The people at large are curious
in know what will be the result of
F.:oh a * implicated political situation.
The campaign has been full of Incon
sistencies and contradictions. Party
l!n¥s='have been broken up and the o!t
pr.oots or offsprings of the old parties
have had their own Internal dissen
sions and disruptions until the average
politician scarcely knows "whether he
is afoot or a-horseback. "while the
avorasv citizen prows dizzy with the
maze of political stuff that is pub
Various ptraw polls have been taken,
notably those by the Herald and World.
Sealed ballot boxes were placed by
the lierald in various department
stores, business offices and workshops
in order to catch a few straws to show j
which way the wind is blowing. The J
ballots were secret. The voter was
nnly required to state his preference
for Governor and his former political
affiliation. Names of voters were not
required. The idea "was to distribute
the ballot boxes In such manner as to
g-et the sentiment of professional men,
business men and laborers. The bal
?ot boxes were returned to the Herald
office each night and the daily vote
summed up. Now if the ballots in
these boxes were deposited by voters
instead of by shop girls and boys or
by other irresponsible parties who will
have no voice in the election the result
of the Heralds poll shows that while
Hearst leads Hujrhes in the factory and
tenement districts, Hughes' vote
among professional and business men
and the intermediate class will more
than offset this. The grand total of
all ballots, including voters of. all
classes, shows that Hughes leads
Hearst slightly. On the other hand,
the World's straw vote shows Hearst
to he slightly In the lead. "But not
withstanding an apparent variance be
tween these two test votes, both tend
to show that Hearst's plurality over
Hughes in Greater New York will fall
far short of the normal Democratic
plurality of 75,000. No test vote has j
been taken by the Herald or World
"up State." but all reports to New York
dailies, except the Hearst papers. In
dicate that there is a big slump of
!). rr.r>crat'.r farmers to Hughes, and hi
the smaller cities and towns the best
element of both parties is supporting
Hughes, without regard to former po
litical affiliation. If these newspaper
reports are to be relied on Hearst will
have to poll a tremendous plurality in
Greater New York to offset the enor
mous vote for Hughes "up State." Sev
er.ty-five thousand plurality for Hearst
in Greater New York will not be half
enough in the opinion of political
sharps, who have money to bet at 4Vz
to 1 on Huphes. There are few takers,
but occasionally a bettor is found who
believes there is a big surprise in
store, for the Hughes bettors, and he Is j
willing to take the short end of a
moderate size bet. These men as a j
rule are to be found around the haunts
freauented by dead game sports, that
is to say. the gamblers and saloon men,
nearly all of whom are shouting for
Hearst. .\u25a0'\u25a0\u25a0
There Ss no way of estimating just
what amount of money will be spent
on election day. It is certain that the
Kepublican State committee has been
hard up for funds. They have had
scarcely enough money to pay for a
campaign of education. Toe amount
of literature sent out has been lim
ited. There is no telling how much
Hearst has spent, or how much he has
had to spend. The Hearst boomers
have been plentifully supplied with
brass bands of music, graphophones,
moving pictures, etc.. and Hearst has
managed to travel around In a special
It was told today by a Wall-street
broker that Patrick McCarren. the
Democratic leader of Brooklyn, has
just completed a poll of New York
State for the Standard Oil Company
and that the canvass Indicated 300,000
plurality for Hughes. But whether or
not any reliance can be placed In any
of these polls, it is conservative opinion
here that all Indications point to
Hughes' election by a big plurality.
It Is believed the result will be
known as early as 10 o'clock. New
York time, on Tuesday evening (7 p. m.
in San Francisco).

The Herald and the Hearst papers

over poor little Buster Brown and his

Mr. Outcault. the artist, originated
the Buster Brown comic pictures and
after the Herald had made them popu
lar amongst the little folks of New
York, Mr. Outcault accepted employ

American. The Buster Brown pictures
were then run by the American as a

to run the pictures, minus the title.
So there were two sets of Buster
Browns. The litigation over the right
to publish these comic pictures aroused
considerable feeling between the rivals.
The American begran a crusade
aguinst the Herald's "Personal" column
of advertisements, alleging that some
of them were unfit for publication, and
had the paper and its principals In
dicted by the Grand Jury. The Herald
retaliated by charging that Hearst's
San Francisco Examiner had "held up"
the Southern Pacific Railroad for $30.
000 and that the amount of $22,000
was paid In monthly installments of
\u2666 1000, the chief consideration being
the railroad's Immunity from attack by
the Examiner. Huntington's insinua
tion, made before the House committee
on Pacific railroads in Washington in
1896. was printed by the Herald in
conjunction with various exhibits,
showing that' part, of the money was
paid irf cash and that Hearst himself
realized on the balance by assigning
his claim to the First National Bank
of San Francisco. The Herald also
charged the Hearst estate with employ
ing Chinese on its ranches and in its
mines. The Hears* campaigners have
endeavored to absolve Hearst from any
responsibility attaching to such em
ployment of, -cheap labor by claiming
that he is not and has not had any
direct personal interest in the Hearst
estate. .:.<\u25a0\u25a0 \u25a0\u25a0-.\u25a0

Mrs. Emma Burnett, 3438 Twenty
second street, one of the many noble
Red Cross women who risked their
lives during the recent calamity in
rendering aid to the stricken, died sud
denly yesterday afternoon at the Po
trero Hospital after a brief attack of
appendicitis, brought on, it is said, by
overwork in caring for the unfortunate
left homeless by the fire.
Mrs. Burnett was one of the first
women In the city to volunteer her aid
to the Red Cross Society, under the
charge of Mrs. Sanderson. For days
and nights she labored incessantly to
provide food, medicine and shelter for
the hundreds of unfortunate who were
taken to the Mission district, after the
flames had swept away their all.
Even since the disaster the" noble
woman had been doing a great deal of
charity work" in the various camps
throughout the city. A few days
ago she was stricken from overwork.
She gradually became worse and yes
terday afternon was removed to the Po
trero Hospital in a dylnff condition,
passing away shorty after her arrival
Mrs. Burnett was a widow and a na
tive of California. She was widely
known throughout the State for her
charitable work and leaves many
friends to mourn her untimely end.

Still Camped : on Truck on
-. Ingleside Road, • Defying
the Relief "Corporation
The administration of the relief
fund found itself .-, very much in
the air. yesterday. On Saturday ' It
placed Mrs. Mary, Kelly, \u25a0 house and ; all,
on a truck and started her for Ingle
side. Then a hitch came in': the pro
ceedings. 'Captain N. Kilian." for
the good. of. his camp, refused to admit
Mrs. Kelly, a recognized agitator. Im
mediately the • administration found
itself In- the : air. At the first
sign of. trouble Lieutenant Henry T.
Scott, the $300 a month executive of
ficer, who, backed by five Pinkertohs
and five special policemen, started the
old woman for Ingleside, appears to
have taken to the ;woods.' The last
Camp Ingleside heard of him was Sat
urday afternoon, . when he'telephoned
that he would consult with Rudolph
Spreckels and report Immediately. All
Saturday afternoon and all day yester
day Camp Ingleside waited the com
ing: of the word from Executive Of
ficer Scott that should : decide Mrs.
Kelly's fate. But no word came. "
Mrs. Kelly remained at the gates, in
possession of her cottage, said cottage
firmly roped to the ' truck that had
brought it there. Hundreds of persons
passing on the :ingleside< cars gazed
with astonishment at the house-laden
truck blocking the road. Mrs. Kelly, worn
and feeble, a fast developing case of
grip or pneumonia sapping- her energy,
In a rather weak voice told her story
to hundreds, who, but for the novel
undertaking of the Relief Corporation,
would never have heard of Mrs. Kelly,
her works or her "kicks."
The Kelly, incident brings to a head
a deal of discord that has wracked the
Relief Corporation ever since Lieuten
ant Scott was made "executive officer of
the department of camps at a Balary of
$300 a month. There are many of Mr.
Scott's fellow workers in the /local
world of scientific relief, men. not near
ly so well paid, who hold strenuously,
albeit secretly, that if Mr. Scott is
worth $300 ,a month they are them
selves decidedly underpaid. In addition
to this, Mr. Scott is alleged to have a
habit of gracefully sliding away from
the hard work of his department, and
the case at issue seemsf a jrood one In
point. . \u25a0 r . . - .
Mrs. Kelly has given Executive Of
ficer Scott a deal of anxiety, in fact she
has caused almost everybody connected
with scientific relief, from Dr. Devlne
down, trouble from the very begin
ning of their philanthropic endeavors
in this city. The climax came; when
she took possession of a refugee cot
tage, refused to varaie and refused to
pay rent. For a corporation, such as
the Relief Corporation, organized for
charitable purposes only, to invoke the
courts to rent from cottages
built oh public squares with money
subscribed for the relief of the very
people from whom the corporation en
deavored to collect, presented legal
problems, from which even scientific re
lief workers shied. Mrs. Kelly's hys
terical action in taking forcible pos
session of a cottage brought the ad
ministration face to face with just the
situation which it dreaded. Hundreds
of other refugees— ready themselves to
dodge their rent obligations if they
thought they could safely do" it— were
watching Mrs. Kelly, and the re
lief administration knew it. : The
matter gave the inner office of the'de
partment of camf»s, over which, in the
absence Of Rudolph Spreckels, Executive
Officer Scott presides, much concern. And
then the happy Idea came to mind' to
slide the whole problem, cottage,
woman and all, over to Captain Killan,
who has made about the only notable
success in relief work his camp at
But, as was reported exclusively in
The Call yesterday, Kilian was not
consulted In the matter at all, and
when he, learned, to his astonishment,
that Scott had started the Kelly woman
to Ingleside he promptly instructed
his gatekeeper that Scott's orders wore
not to be considered; that Mrs. Kelly
was not to be dragged through the
Ingleside gates. Furthermore, he noti
fied Scott that his; (Killan's) resigna
tion was ready if Rudolph Spreclols
insisted upon her being admitted.
KlHan's positive course so . discon
certed Scott that he posted off to con
sult Spreckels with the statement that
Kilian would be notified Immediately
of what action should be taken." This
was Saturday afternoon, fully two
hours before Mrs. Kelly arrived at the
gate. Up to midnight last night Scott
had not been heard from at the scene
of trouble.
Mrs. Kelly, the direct cause of the
trouble, spent a .bad Saturday night
and a sad Sunday. Mrs. Kelly, who
had slept little or not at all Saturday
night, was at the pomt 1 of collapse.
She had contracted a severe cold and
is rapidly coming down with a bad
case of grip or pneumonia. She was
fed by Captain Killan's orders,. but the
commander of Ingleside would not per
mit her to be brought into the camp
unless she promised to obierve the
rules of the camp, which she would not
do. During the day Mr. Phelan visited
the camp, but claimed to have; no
knowledge of the affair. The day was
spent in waiting. for something to; turn
up. When, night set in the unhappy old
woman was stlllvat the gates of Ingle
side defying the wh<Jle | Relief Corpora
tion, its agents and its works.
"I shall remain right hiere," said ' Mrs.
Kelly yesterday in answer to the ques
tion as to what .she was going to do,
"until my house is taken back to Jef
ferson Square or; ]I; am taken. put : by
force. I am still contented; I am still
easy in - my mlnd; ; I"' have "done"-' no

would desert the house, but they were

refugee in .San Francisco. :;If it goes
against me it goes against them."

World's Champion Bulldogs Is

Hundreds fbi Prizes

LONDON. Oct^ 19.— Why English
women who exhibit dogs for prizes at
shows should affect bulldogs, the most
homely vlsaged of the. canine species, in
preference to any other type must ever
remain 'a' psychological puzzle to- mere
man. Perhaps It is due to the law, of
contrasts— to some r: subtle: affinity be
tween feminine beauty and doggy ugli
ness. Whatever jbe the cause it is a
fact' that . the most successful exhibit
ors of bulldogs; in: England are women.
' One of them, Mrs. Edgar Waterlow,
has Just achieved a world's record; with
her. Nuthurst Doctor. At; the London

Moreover, thes« i championships V have

No less^than sixteen different'ijudges
have accorded championships to Nut
hurst Doctor at different times. 'He
has won more than 500 prizes. 'At
this last show he was awarded no
less than ''twenty-one . ''specials." So
far as show purposes- are • concerned,

."At .first," she told me,! "I was dis
posed to take up horse-breeding as a
hobby,' but you cannot keep a foal by
your side continually, and somehow I
always wanted something that I could
look after personally and make a com
panion of. My husband made, me a
present/ of a. couple of .bullpups, whom
we named Nuthurst Bill and Nuthurst
Doctor— Nuthurst after our place in
thecountry. Bill was the'one I fan
cied and Mr. Wateflow paid £15 <?75)
for him. .: The seller Was anxious to
get >id of his brother also and of
fered* him -for-f 10. (150), at which price
my husband bought him, mainly that
Bill might have some one of his kind
to frolic with as he grew up, and not
f eel • lonesome. "•
Bill died young, and the dog who
was bought. for. a mere songjto provide
him with a playmate has lived, as you
know, to- beat all : championship rec
ords, and is today wor Jh a small for
tune. Yet I have always believed that
Bill, had he lived, would have proved
the finer dog of the two. But after
Bill went I transferred all my affec
tions to the Doctor. His looks— as Is
always the case with bulldogs when
properly treated — belie his character.
He is as gentle and playful as a kitten.
For air the blue" ribbons that have been
tied to his collar he isn't a bit stuck
up and has no idea that-he is, the finest
bulldog that ever faced a Judge. Only
once has he shown any temper. That
was when arpostman tried to hit him
with a stick. The postman missed,
but the Doctor didn't, and that postman
never tried to hit him again."
The Doctor Is only five years old,
but is already; the grandfather of sev
eral prizewinners. ; There are now
twenty-three bulldogs at Mrs. Water
low's kennels, most of them the .Doc

Every ner\*c is a live wire
connecting some part of the
body with the brain. They are
so numerous that if you pene-
trate the skin with the point of \u25a0
a needle you' will touch 9 nerve
and receive a shoek — pain it is
called. Aches and pains come
from a pressure, strain or In-
jury to a nerve ; the more prom-
inent the nerve. the greater the
pain. When the pain comes
from a larjre nerve it is called
whether it be the facial nerves,
or the heart, stomach, sciatic
or other prominent nerve
branch." To stop pain, then,
you must relieve the strain or
pressure upon the nerves.

make you irritable; you can't sleep,
you are unable to quietly and calmly
perform your '"aily tasks or care for
your children.
The relation of the nerves and gen-
erative organs in woman \a so closa
that nine-tenths of the nervous pros-
tration, nervous debility, the blues,
sleeplessness and nervous irritability
arise from some derangement of the
organism which makes her a woman.
Fits of depression or restlessness and
irritability : spirits easily aHeeted, so
that one minute she laughs, the next
miniite weeps ; pain in the abdominal
region and between the shoulders;
loss of voice; nervous dyspepsia; a
tendency to cry at the least provoca-
tion—all these point to nervous pros-
Nothing "will relieve this distressing
condition and prevent months of pros-
; tration and safYc-rinpr so surely as Lydia
E. Pinkhams Vegetable Compound.
Mrs. Ml' E^Shotwell. of 103 Flatbush
Avenue, Brooldvn, N. V,, writes:
"I cannot express the \ronderful relief I
i have experienced by takine Lyilia E rink-
btim's Vegetabla Compound. I sufTere<l for
; a long time vrith nervous prc?tration. beck-
ache, headache, ioss of appetite. I ccuM
not sleep and would walk the floor alniosS
every night.
"I had thre« doctors and got no better, and
J life was a burden. I was advisri to try
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and it has worked wondorj for me.
"I am a well woma.i, my nervousness is all
fcone and my friew»i say I look ten years
younger." j
Will not the volumes of letters from
women made strong by Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound convince
all women of its virtr.es ? Surely you
cannot wish to remain sick, weak
and discouraged, exhausted each day,
when you can be as easily cured aa
other women.
