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
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.

On Election Day He is King
of All Men,
(John G. Whittier.)
The proudest now is but my
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
Today let pomp and vain pre
tense My stubborn right abide;
I set a plain man's common
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
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!

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.
The drilling crew stood their
ground and managed to whip out
the flames and save the derrick, but
in the effort J. Holly, a driller, was
badly burned and others were bad
ly scorched.
Getting on Nicely.
William Eagen, who was severely
injured Saturday afternoon at G reus
fork, while running a train of emp
ty cars to .Filwood. was reported as
doiifg 'nicely yesterday afternoon
though Dr. Weist says that all dan
ger will not be passed for three
weeks yet. The injured man laughs
and jokes about his condition as
though his wound was but a slight
scratch. When operated on he re
fused to take an anaesthetic. Sev
eral years ago Eagen rs engine was
derailed at Crescent ville, his fireman
was killed, but he eseajed without
Ja scratch.
Placed in the Republican Column
The Whirlwind Finish General
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
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.
He Declares the Campaign Fund is
About One-Half as Large as
J$ew York, Nov. 6. 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
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.

Judge Declares Merchants Can Not
. . Purchase Immunity in Fines. . .
Media, Pa., November 5. 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.

continued business.

However, Still Maintains Strict Si

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

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

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.
