DAILY ESTABLISH E l GIRLS ABOARD BALTIC FLEET RUSSIAN OFFICERS ACCOM PANIED BY ACTRESSES. TROUBLE ill HIDING THEM Is Rumored, Caused Warship's Has ty Departure From; Vigo, ,t Spain. St. Peterburg, November 6. A rather remarkable explanation of the unexpected leaving of 'the Baltic fleet from Viga is made here. It is 'probably untrue, but the fact that the .main facts on which it is based are true causes it to be aeepled by a great many. During the time the prepara tions of the Baltic licet a great many actresses ami chorus girls from the Moscow and St. Petersburg theaters were constantly with the .officers of the lleet. When -the iUvt finally sail ed it was found that a goodly por tion of these women were missing. It has been learned 1 hat they are aboard the lleet, and it is said that the difficulty of keeping' them out of sight between decks at Vigo made it necessary to get away where they could be transferred to one of the supply ships or colliers. It is said that they might bo more easily put ashore from a supply ship without being seen. Women on All Ships. It is hard "for- the people ot any other nation .to . believe that women would he allowed on a , warship in that they are aboard almost every vessel in the. Russian navy. Reports are coming in great er numbers of the destitution in the districts where the conscription of soldiers has been heaviest. With reports of famine and starvation coming this early, before winter has fairly set in, it is easy to imagine what the condition of peasant Rus sia will be when the bitter cold of the winter really comes. It is a picture almost too horrible to think about. WTliJln flirt oflrtiiciimn ic vnf rvrjori- ly made that Admiral Rojestvensky was drunk when he fired upon the fishing boats in the North sea, as letters come back from those aboard the fleet it becomes more and more certain that if he was not drunk he was about the only man on board who could plead to being sober. Short of Ammunition. The lull that has obtained in Man chooria is easily accounted for on the part o fthe Russian forces. Am munition is terribly short with the army, and for a few days no attempt, to send soldiers- East has been made, as the authorities had to choose be tween sending soldiers and ammuni tion, so urgent was the need of pow der and shot. Letters received here from pri vates of the line" tell the must piti able tales of lack of shoes and warm clothing. The men are said to be in bad shape, due to being com pelled to tramp over the rocky roads and hills of the scene of the battle with poorly clad feet. ; It may be possible that batters are not much better with the Jap anese and that their failure to re sume hostilities is traceable to the same reason. Rut they will more quickly obtain the supplies they need than the Russians,: if. they have not already received ample. EX-MAYOR Has Been Pound Guilty of Murder ing His Wife. (By Associated Press.)

The proudest now is but my peer The highest not more high; Today, of all the weary year, A king of men am I. Today, alike are great and small, The nameless" and the known; My palace is the people's hall, . The ballot box my throne! Who serves today, upon the list Reside the served shall, ..stand ; Alike the brown and wrinkled fist, ' The gloved and dainty hand! The rich is level with the poor, ' The weak is strong today; And sleekest broad-cloth counts no more Than home-spun frock of gray. Today let pomp and vain pre tense My stubborn right abide; I set a plain man's common sense Against the pedant's pride. Today shall simple manhood try The strength of gold and land; The wide world has not wealth to buy The power in my right hand! While there's a grief to seek redress, Or balance to adjust. Where weighs our living man hood less Than mammon's vilest dust, While there's a right to need my vote, A wrong to sweep away, Up! clouted knee and ragged coat ! A man's a man today!

BIG EXPLOSION Occur at the Drilling of a New Well Near Portland. (Special to the Palladium.) Portland, " Ind., Nov. 6. Destruc tion of property and loss of life, were narrowly averted today on the Reuben Dehotf farm, near Bryant, at which place F. F. Fulton is drilling a well for the Bear Creek Oil Com pany. - At the fourth screw in the sand the oil suddenly gushed to the top of the well, and began to spout high in to the air. The wind blew the spray on the boiler, 150 feet away, and "at sea of tire followed a big explosion.

SITUATION AS VIEWED BY THE INDIANA POLIS STAR EVERY DEBATABLE STATE Placed in the Republican Column The Whirlwind Finish General Notes. The Indianapolis Star, yesterday, in summing up the political situation at the end of the campaign, has the following to say: With a sensational and dramatic exchange of charges and replies be tween the candidates one of the most remarkable presidential campaigns of recent times, Avas practically brought to a close Saturday night. It is not expected that much more of import ance will take place before the elec tio, though a few belated meetings will be held and some statements and claims may be issued. The whirlwind finish predicted two months ago has been realized. The unusual features of a candidate at tacking ,his opponent in office and forcing him into making a direct re ply followed by a rejoinder from the candidate, is a novelty and furnish ed the main topic of conversation where politics was discussed today. The appearance of Judge Parker on the public platform marked an epoch in the political campaign of 1904, for up foMhis time it had been apathetic and) uninteresting. Firm his first speech -to -'his" last he has been growing more and more vigorous and more direct in his as sertions, to the elation of the Demo crats, avIio have clamored for more life and ginger in the canvass. The Republican canvass lacked in terest until cabinet officers, senators and men close to the president be gan making replies to Judge Park er 's charges, but their part in it was insignificant compared to the bomb exploded by Roosevelt in his state ment printed yesterday morning. Silence has marked the manage ment of the Republican campaign. But one pronouncement or claim has been made by- an official of the Re publican national committee, and in that nearly every debatable state was placed in the Republican column. This was promptly answered by the Democratic manager's with a claim of the same debatable states and a sure majority in the electoral college. Today there is the promise of a summing up by the two commit ters and a final estimate as to the results. The wide difference in the claims has furnished sufficient doubt to give followers of both candidates confident hopes of success and to keep interest of -partisans keen until the result is known. Up to within three weeks of the election the campaign was remarka ble for its apathy and the seeming lack of interest which the voters were taking in the canvass. The campaign started late. It was weeks alter the national conventions had made their choice of candidates before the committees charged with the conduct of the -political campaign- began active work.' More than fhis, the early work of the commit tees consisted largely in distribut ing literature and efforts to ascer tain the drift of public sentiment. The fact that neither candidate, one because he was in the presiden tial chair, and the other because his judical temnernment was antagonis- i tic to the idea, made a great speech- making tour of the country, account ed to some extent for the apathy apparent in the earlier stages of the campaign. Injured. James Terhune. a well known railroad man of this city, was slight ly injured at Cineinnatti Saturday evening. lie was riding on a switch engine which collided with another one and he was thrown on the track, lie was taken to a hospital in Cin einnatti but it is reported that he was not seriously injured.

Chairman Cortelyou of the Republican national committee tonight issued the follow ing statement : "To , all Supporters of Roosevelt and V Fairbanks : The presidential campaign has reached the final stage and the" reports of the Republican national committee from all parts of thef country seem to be as complete as it is possible for the election re ports to be. Upon these and upon information that the committee has been able to obtain I am satisfied that the Republican candidates for president and vice president will cart every northern State, with the possible exception of Maryland and Nevada and will have not less than 314 .out: of the 470 votes in the elec toral ; college. "The campaign has been conduct ed with a much smaller fund than any-presidential campaign for (lie pastj'twelve years. The fund this year although made up of eontribu t ions, of more than 4,000 persons, has lateen about half as large as the Republican fund -.when President liraSSney about half as large as the Democrat ic fund when President Cleveland was elected in 1892. 1 Every part of this fund has come from voluntary contributions made without demand, importunity or pressure, and without any agree ment, pledge, promise, assurance or understanding express or implied, regarding the policy or the action of the administration or looking to any benefit or advantage to any contrib utor except the benefit which will come to all business and to all our people from the continuance of Re publican policies and Republican ad ministration. "To the great body of spirited citizens who from their means and their personal efforts have aided in the arduous labors of the campaign I return the heartfelt thanks of the national committee of 1904. "GEORGE B. CORTELYOU, ' ' Chairman. ' ' LARGEST ODDS Of the Campaign Are Given in Kan sas City Bet. Kansas City, Mo., November G.

Judge Johnson handed down an opinion which will cause Addison B. Foster and John G. Pappas, Darby mer chants, to refrain from violation of the blue laws or compel them to give security for their good behavior. The defendants insisted upon keeping their places of business open on Sunday, despite the fact that they were arrested a dozen times-on war rants sworn out by the Law and Order Society. Each Sunday they paid the fine of $4 and costs and continued business. "Persons can not pay for the pri vilege 'of violating the law," said Judge Johnson. "The law must prevail or government ends."

A CHANGED MAN IS HALEY GIPE AUTHORITIES BELIEVE HE IS SHIELDING SOME ONE HAS BEEN ACTING STRANGE However, Still Maintains Strict Si lence About the Crime Shows Signs of Giving Away. - --5 Newcastle, Ind., Nov. C The au thorities seem now quite positive that Haley Gipc is shielding himself and at least one other in the tragedy which was enacted at the home t William Starbuck, on the night of J uly 9. Their opinions are based sole ly upon the actions of the prisoner, who shows signs of giving way nnder the terrific strain which certainly b upon him. During the past few days Gipe has acted rather strangely for him. He declares that he cannot sleep at all and that when Morpheus does enfold him, the rest is broken. He does not have the confident expression that he once did. He does not talk aa much as he has formerly done. He apparently does not take the interest in things as he once did and in aL most every way he is changed. TW i ml if-:l i inn imitit nn in mm J!.-....r i.... l v.. WllV U1LVV11VU and they are taken as a sign ot guilt. If Gipe himself is guilty of thh crime, in the opinion of the authori ties he would Jiave told all that 1h knows of the affair. But as he . hai maintained a strict silence on tht subject, it is the opinion that he it shielding some one oilier than' him self and that he has been induced to withhold what knowledge he hai from the authorities. This Gipe is trying to do, but the indications are that he is about to break down and reveal everything connected with thi mvsterv. Miss 'Nellie Shepherd, who so ve hemently declared her belief in th innocence of her lover, has not seen him since he was arrested on the charge of murder. Although she also declared that she would marry llaley in the event of his 'indictment, no arrangements are being made, and the apparent loss of interest in him has lead many to believe that Mis Shepherd cares nothing for th ac cused murderer now. A few letters pass between the two, but it is noc thought that any marriage ceremony uniting this couple will ever taki place at least not in the jail. Information from Greensboro is t the effect that all of the residents of that township are satisfied with the turn of events and that they feet mat at least one ot the parties t) the crime has been apprehended. ELMER WATT His Remains Removed to Late Horn f for Burial. , The body of Elmer' "Walt, who was killed Saturday evening by a Dayton- &' 'Western Traction com pany's car, was taken yesterday from the morgue of Doan & Klute jaud sent to New Paris, Ohio, where he resided.
