By Associated Press..
New York, Nov. 3.—Sunday was
a comparative quiet day in the pres
idential campaign.
President Taft remained in New
York on his way to Cincinnati from
Utica, and conferred with his politi
cal advisers. Roosevelt and his po
litical aides discussed the situation
at Oyster Bay, and Governor Wilson
held phone conversations with the
democratic headquarters.
The day brought no changes in the
political arena and no developments
of impor’ance. Each candidate’s
manager expressed confidence as to
the result Tuseday.
The republican vice presidential
situation occupied much attention.
Names of several possibilties were
brought forward today.
William Barnes, jr., on leaving the
apartments of the president at the
Manhattan hotel, declared himself
for John Wanamaker.
“Wilson and Marshall will have
the largest electoral vote given to
any candidate since the civil war,"
declared Democratic Chairman Mc
Combs tonight.
“They will al?o receive the larg
est popular vote in the history of
the United States,” he continued.
“They will carry not less than forty
of the forty-eight state sand will
likely carry them all. A unanimous
vote in the electoral college would
not be surprising. Congress will be
democratic in both branches.
Senator Dixon, national chairman
of the progressive party, in his fore
cast said:

gram has appealed mikhtly to the
great industrial class of the nation, j
“Taft will be the worst beaten
man since Winfield Scott led the
remnant of the old whig party to de
struction in 1852.
“It is a conservative estimate to
say that Roosevelt will receive sixty

years ago ar.d not les sthan fifteen
percent ot the vote of that year. He
will have at least 297 votes in the
the electoral college.'*

WOODMEN OF WORLD
UNVEILJNONUMENTS
Impressive Ceremonies at Grave* of
Jo*. L. Crixell »nd Jose T. Pec‘na
by Two Local Lodge*.
Amid the impressive ceremonies of
the lodges of which the deceased
was a member, the monuftient to the
late Joseph L. Crixell was unveiled
yesterday afternoon. The monu
ment, eight feet high, is the style
commonly erected to the memory of
deceased members of the Woodmen
of the World, but larger. The grave
was decorated by hundreds of
wreaths and floral offerings.
Forming in line at Leveee and
12th streets, members of the W. O.
W. and Obreros lodges, lead by the
Obreros band and followed by a
cordon of mounted police, marched
to the cemetery. In the parade were
a large number of citizens from
Matamoros, friend? of Mr. Crixell,
also several members of the police
force of that city.
The line of march and arrange
ments for the unveiling were in
charge of J. P. Reyes of the Burks
company. All the members of the \V. i
O. W., as well as the band, were
dressed in white suits, the summer
marching uniform of the order.
The space immediately surround
ing the grave was roped off to ac
comodate the members of the family
of Mr. Crixell, the lodge member and
invited guests. The inclosure was
soon crowded to it? utmost capacity,
but the ceremony was carried out
without unnecessary delay. Besides
solemn and impressive music by the
band, there was singing of Spanish
hymns by male and female voice?.
Probably a thousand persons were
present to witness the ceremony at
tending the unveiling of the monu
ment.
Following the unveiling of the
Crixell monument, the lodges re
paired to the grave of Jose T. Pecina,
who w'as also a member of the same
orders, and to whose memory they
al-o unveiled a monunment. Mr.
Pecina died last February. This
monument was also erected by the
Woodmen of the World, and cese
monies similar to those held at the
grave of Mr. Crixell were enacted at
Mr. Pecina’s grave.

TURKEY CALLS
FOR INTERVENTIOR
GOVERNMENT ISSUES BULLETIN
ADMITTING DEFEAT
Army >n Full Retre®t on Constanti
nople—Greek* Take N>ehol*s “nd
Proviso—Bulgarian* Tighten Grip
on Adrianople.
By Associated Press.
London, Eng., Nov. 3.—With the
Turkish army in full retreat on Con
£ antinople the Turkish government
tonight issued a bulletin admitting
defeat at the hand? of the Bulgar
ians in the great battle on the
Thracean plains, and asking the
powers to intervene.
Application was made to the em
bassies in Constantinople for media
tion by the powers to end the hostili
ties and arrange peace.
The Porte has granted permis-rion
to each of the great powers to send
warships through the Dardanelles,
as the only guarantte of safety of
the lives of Christians and perhaps
foreigners in Constantinople would
be the presence of warships of the
great powers in the harbor of the
Turkish capital.
It is believed that Bulgaria will
refuseto listen to anything in the
way of intervention until the Bul
garian army is at the gates of Con
stan inople and will insist that
Turkey make an appeal direct to the
allie- without interference from the
powers.
Tonight's dispatches indicate that
'.he Bulgarians are tightening their
grip around Adrianople and the bom
bardment is becoming more vigor
ious while in other directions they
are consolidating their occupation of
Turkish territory.
The Greeks have taken Nicholis
and Prevesa and have landed a di
vision of men at Stavro? which is
marching to attack Saloniki. It is
believed Saloniki will surrender
without resistence.
Meanwhile the powers are unable
to agree upon the formula of “ter
ritorial disinterestedness” advanced
by the French premier, which was
not acceptable to Germany and Aus
tria.

“BUGS” AGAIN BOTHER |
LOCAL PHONE LINES
Small Holes Mysteriously Appear in
Lead Cable8, Adm*Uing Water and
int^ering With Serv*ce.
The Brownsville exchange of the
Southwestern Telephone and Tele
graph company continues to have
trouble with the so-called “cable
bugs” that have been pestering the
cables more or less here in the last
few months. Three or four months
ago, a crossing of line, interrupting
good service, caused an investiga
tion, and it was discovered that
strange holes had been bored into
he cables from the under side.
Thus water was allowed to enter the
cables, resulting in short circuits,
and seriously interferring with the
service.
After considerable efforts the,
damage was repaired, and things ran
along smoothly until recently, when
a similar trouble appeared. An ex
amination of the cable by a lineman
showed three or four holes through
which, by suction, water had again
entered the lines.
The cau-e of these holes, which
are about the size of pin heads, is a
mystery, and a definite reason for
their appearance can not be as
signed. They seem to be peculiar to !
Brownsville. Some claim they are
caused by static electricity. Some
say a variety of wasps bore into the
lead, and others cover the field in a
general way by assigning the cause
of the troubles to “lead bugs,” what-;
ever they may be. Although no en
tomologist has classified any such in
sect, perhaps, after all, the latter
would answer the question as well
as anything eles, for no authority
has as yet vouchsafed any explana
tion of the trouble. Whatever it is,
apparently it is something or other
with a decidedly large bump of cur
iosity—large enough to want to
hear everything that goes over the
line* in the way - of conversation.
However, as none of the borers were
discovered, when the holes were ex
amined, it is evident that what they
had heard so far was enough to sat
isfy their desire for knowledge.
