MARYLAND STILL IN THE BALANCE IT IS NOT KNOWN AS YET WHETHER THE STATE WENT DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN. Roosevelt’s Plurality Now Shown to Be bnt 126—This May Mean That the Electoral Vote of the State Will Be Divided—Retnrns from the Nation Show a Steadily Increas ing Roosevelt Plurality—About 2,000,000. New York, Nov. 10.—After-election interest was to-day suddenly centered upon Maryland by the announcement that that state, yesterday conceded to the Republicans, is now in doubt. Late returns have reduced Roose velt's plurality to the narrow margin of 126 and it will take the official count to determine whether Maryland will be placed In the Republican or Demo cratic column. There is a possibility that the state’s electoral vote will be divided. Beyond the situation In Maryland and the fact that is now admitted that Roosevelt carried Missouri, in which state the Legislature is also Repub lican, to-day’s election news is devoid of feature. Returns show steadily increasing Republican pluralities and it now seems probable that Roosevelt’s plu rality in the popuiar vote will be In round numbers 2,000,000. In Colorado both parties are claim ing success on the state ticket. NEITHER SIDEBEATEN BY MORE THAN 100 VOTES. Baltimore, Nov. 10.—The official re turns received -here up to a late hour to-night Indicate that the vote for the presidential candidates last Tuesday was very close —possibly 100 on either side. It is probable that Secretary of State Oswald Tilghman. will be called upon to decide which of the electors will be entitled to cast their votes iu Washington. The board of canvassers In Baltimore city and in the twenty-three counties of the state met at noon to-day. In Baltimore city the votes cast in the Third Congressional district, were counted, but the totals were not mode public. While Congressman Frank C. Wachter was admittedly re-elected the vote op vhe presidential ticket Is left In doubt. From the official returns thus far received, the indications are that the Republicans have elected seven and the Democrats one of the electors of the state. Returns received from eleven coun ties of the state give the Republican electors a plurality of 17. Until the canvassing boards of the several coun ties and of Baltimore city shall have examined and counted the ballots, it will be impossible to say which of the presidential candidates will receive Maryland’s electoral vote. There is no change in the Congress ional situation, the Democrats and Re publicans each having elected three members of the next House. GIVES ROOSEVELT CREDIT. Herrick Thinks Thai o Him the Victory Wh line. Albany, N. Y., Nov. 10.—Judge D. Cady Herrick, the defeated candidate of the Democratic party for Governor, will leave to-morrow for an extended vllit to Havana for his health. Upon his return he will resume the practice of law. . In discussing the result of the elec tion. Judge Herrick said: “Perhaps the Republican party would have won this election in any event. But the magnitude of their victory Is due to the personality of President Roosevelt and It is hts victory, and not that of the party. Ever since he entered public life as a member of the assembly soon after his graduation from college he has had a picturesque career, and his personality has been an exceedingly attractive one to the people. More than a year ago, I stat ed that 1 thought him the most skill ful politician that had occupied the White House in my time. Recent events have strengthened my opinion in that respect. I take off my hat to him. "This Is no time for Democrats to weep and moan. Those who are Dem ocrats on principle will continue the light. Any one can fight when he is h winner. Let the Democratic party show that It can keep It up when beat en and eventually turn victory Into defeat. 'To Democrats I say: Keep up the organizations we have and strength en them as much as possible.’’ ODELL AND MURPHY BOTH SEEM PLEASED. Murphy** Satisfaction Is Over the Way Tammany Acted. New York. Nov. 10.—Gov. Odell, chairman of the Republican State Com "nttee. and Charles F. Murphy, lead er of Tammany Hall, expressed them selves on the election results to-day, each finding cause for gratification. Gov.

Nov. 10.—Thomas Tag gart, chairman of the Democratic Na tional Committee, arrived here to-day after an absence of several weeks in Indiana. He went at once to national headquarters, where he had a long con ference with William F. Sheehan and Secretary Woodson. Mr. Taggart was asked how he ac counted for the Roosevelt landslide of Tuesday. “Oh, there wene not enough Demo crats,” he replied. “Will the party be reorganized?” “There is no need of reorganization. What we need is more Democrats." ALVA ADAMS WINS THE COLORADO GOVERNORSHIP. Peabody Himself Admits That He Whs Defeated. Denver, Col., Nov. 10. —Gov. Jamea H. Peabody, Republican, himself con cedes his defeat. Alva Adams’ ma jority over Peabody in the city and county of Denver is 5,072 and in the entire state about 10,500. Republicans still claim a majority for Peabody in the state outside Den ver, but this is not borne out by the returns, which are still incomplete. “On the face of the returns Adams is elected,” said Republican State Chairman Fairley, “but the official count or a contest may change it to Peabody.” John F. Shafroth, Democrat, is ap parently elected congressman-at-large with a plurality of 2,000. Both sides are claiming the Legisla ture and the result will be in doubt until the official count is made in Den ver and Pueblo. At a meeting of Republican candi dates and party leaders to-day it was decided to begin Immediately a con test for the places of all the Demo crats elected In Colorado on the face of the returns. An effort will be made to seat all the Republicans, from Gov ernor down. The matter will be car ried into the courts on the claim that the state Democrats were elected by glaring frauds In Denver and a num ber of affidavits in support of the charges of fraud have been tiled at Re publican hwMlqU'arters 'by the Repub lican watchers and Judges. Chairman Williams of the Republican Central City Committee, declares that nearly all of the increased vote polled Tuesday, amounting approximately to 7,000 more than the number cast at the city election in May, was fraudulent.

Philadelphia, Nov. 10.—Complete, but unofficial, figures received by the As sociated Press from every county in the state, with the exception of Alle ghany, In which Pittsburg Is situated, but from where a close estimate has been obtained, show that President Roosevelt's plurality in Pennsylvania has reached 494,525, probably the larg est plurality ever given a presidential candidate by any state in the political history of the country. President Roosevelt's total vote, ac cording to figures at hand, Is 830,310, and Parker’s 335,600. McKinley’s total vote in 1900 was 712,665. and Bryan’s 424.232. WEST VIRGINIA. Parkersburg, W. V..

RUSSIA DECLINED PEACE OVERTURES JAPAN MADE THE OFFER BIT RUSSIA DIB NOT CARE TO ENTERTAIN IT. Oiler Was Made Tentatively and I'n ollie in 11 y by Japan—lt Is Now Saitt That United States, France ana Great Britain May Oiler Media tion—l’rnfl’er, It la Said. Would Be Mude by Hoosevelt—loinadovrne Brought the Matter Ip. London, Nov. 10. 4:55 p. m.—Japan unofficially has made representations to Russia looking to peace. This ac tion has resulted in failure and such representations, even privately, are not likely to be repeated by Japan. Although the suggestion of a pacific settlement was made unofficially, it actually had behind it all the weight of an offer by the Japanese govern ment. It was made direct to Russia. No power acted as, an intermediary. The proposition was put forward ten tatively and unofficially, so that the Japanese government would be in a position to deny any report that it was suing for peace. The failure of these direct negotia tions, however, resulted in bringing in tervention within a measurable dis tance. Foreign Secretary Lansdowne's plea for arbitration yesterday evening at the Guild Hall banquet is taken here to be a pointed suggestion to the United States and France that the time is approaching when the Powers must take some action. It can be definitely stated that Lord Lansdowne made his speech with full knowledge that Japan will not resent a proposition looking to peace from the three Pow ers—the United States, France and Great Britain. There is a definite im pression that the initiative will come from President Roosevelt, though the action would be joint. Huyaslii Approves Suggestion. In an interview generally regarding the foregoing Baron Hayashi, the Jap anese minister, said: ”1 should not be surprised to see the three Powers named, or two of them, take the action suggested. Exactly upon what basis of a settlement peace could be secured, it is at present im possible to see, but there is not the slightest doubt that combined repre sentations, cspeckilly If led by Pres ident Roosevelt, would have a far reaching result between two countries, one of which was thoroughly defeated. It is comparatively easy to make peace in this case, as neither side is thoroughly defeated yet. “The prospects for the success of friendly intervention have vastly in creased. Since the commencement of the war the two nations now respect each other to a degree never dreamed of before they met in battle. That mu tual respect is the most hopeful factor for peace. Doesn’t Want to Fight Forever. “Japan does not want to go on fight ing forever. Yet. even with all the victories won during this war. her statesmen would render themselveei lia ble to be most seriously misunderstood, especially in Russia, if they openly suggested in the name of humanity some method whereby the war could be stopped. It would be altogether different, however, at this stage of the war, should a friendly offer, prompted by that sense of humanity which Ja pan cannot voice for,fear of being mis understood, emanate from the United States and Great Britain, but nothing can be done until the fall of Port Arthur.” ROOSEVEITwOULD NOT TAKE THE INITIATIVE. For Japan nntl Hnsaia First to Ex press tt Willi agness. Washington, Nov. 10.—Careful In quiry here fails to develope any change within the last four weeks in the attitude of this government towards the Far Eastern situation. There has been no move officially that couid be construed as indicating a purpose by America to intervene be tween the belligerents. It was stat ed, however, several weeks ago by one in authority that the President was only awaiting a suitable opportunity to do what he could to terminate the present war. He was restrained at that time, and is now, by the Iron clad rule of the State Department, that under no circumstances or con ditions shall the government make a formal offer to bring the belligerent* to peace terms unless both of them shall signify a willingness to avia.il of his good offices. That point ha* not yet been reached ln this war. It is known that Japan, having been in full and free conference with the State Department here and with Mr. Grlscom, the American minister at Toklo, for many weeks past. Is will ing to entertain an offer of good of fices from the President or Kin* Edward looking toward terminating the war, but so far no such Intima tion has come from Russia, and the slightest suggestion of an Intention to urge peace Upon Russia has arous ed both private and official resent ment on' the part of the Russian of ficials here. RUSSIA WANTS NO PEACE AT PRESENT. I’restlge Would Suffer In Accept li nl This Time. St. Petersburg, Nov. 10.— In official circles Lord Lansdowne’s veiled sug gestion that the Russo-Japanese oon lllct might be settled by arbitration finds an unfavorable echo. The sen timent prevails stronger than ever that Russia’s prestige must be vindicated befor* the Idea of peace can be enter tained. Hopeless as is the Ides of bring ing (he war to s conclusion it seems, however, that there are those In high quarters who consider that there is a bars possibility of bringing the con flict to a close on the basts of arbi tration, If such a proposllon came di rectly from Japan. Russia has an nounced again and again that no prop osition from an uninterested power would tvsn be answered, but that any proposition from Japan direct, no mat ter through what intermediary, would be considered. A proposal from Japan to arbitrate the controversy would appeal strong ly to Emperor Nicholas. He is ex tremely proud of being the author of The Hague conference, and In spite of the difficult position In which Rus sian military prestige would be left by a cessation of hostilities at this juncture those competent to Judge ac tually entertain the belief that such an offer on the part of Japan now would not be in vain. ETSE MOUNTAIN IS PROVING NO MOLE HILL Difllcnlt I’roblom for the Japanese to Demonstrate. ” Che Foo, Nov. 10, Noon.—Etse moun tain, according to Chinese, 120 of whom arrived here to-d iy from Port Arthur, is proving a costly obstacle to the Jap anese. On the mornings of Nov. 5 and 6 fierce assaults on the position were made by the Japanese, who were re pulsed. During the second assault, a shell, soaring over the other drills from Palichuang, dropped on Etse mountain and demolished a land mine and the mine-controlling station and exploded other mines. The Russians were holding the trenches on the boundary of the mined section. Between 600 and 700 were kill ed or wounded. The Japanese, not hav ing reached the place, were unhurt, Etse mountain owes the best part of its strength to the peculiar topography of the surrounding country, which pre vents a direct artillery fire and does not enable the Japanese to advance trenches with the success evinced else where. The Japanese advanced on It In both instances from behind distant hills, with the fullest force the ground would allow, but in the long distances which they were compelled to traverse in the face of machine guns, their ranks were melted. Both times the Japanese broke the wire entangle ments in places. One soldier with a leg torn off was seen trying to bite the wires. RIFLE PRACTIcToF JAPS AND RUSSIANS. Bits and Misses Indicated by Jocu lar Antagonists. Huansian, Ten Miles South of Muk den, Nov. 10.—The weather to-day was warmer, with slight rain. Along the eighty miles constituting the front of the Russian army every thing was quiet, egeept for occasional skirmishes and ai fttlery duels on the center and left, whore gunners Are Oc casionally for the sake of practice, so as to have the range, should the Japanese take the offensive.

Massacre Is Feared When Port Ar thur Falls. Toklo, Nov. 10, 10:45 a. m.—lt is re ported that Gen. Stoessel, command ing at Port Arthur, has asked the Japanese for an armistice, the purpose of which is not stated. A confirmation of the reDort is unobtainable. It is hoped here that Gen. Stoessel will capitulate before the city proper is taken. The Japanese soldiers are angry and inflamed on account of the alleged abuse of their wounded by tho Russians. They believe they will be murdered if captured. Under these conditions, it will possibly be difficult to avoid a massacre when the troops meet in the final combat. CONFLAGRATION CAUSED BY THE BOMBARDMENT. Toklo, Nov. 10, 8:30 p. m. —A report from Gen. Nogl’s headquarters before Port Arthur, dated Nov. 9, says: “The enemy’s military warehouse situated ln the northern part of Port Arthur, was bombarded Nov. 6 with heavy siege and naval guns. The bombardment caused a conflagration. "On the afternoon of Nov. 6 the mag azine of an old battery on Bung Chow mountain was exploded by our shells.” ATTACKED JAPANESE AND DROVE THEM OUT.

Folk, Too, Was the Choice of That Stnte’* Voters. St. Louis, Nov. 10.—With seven counties still to be heard from at nightfall, the returns showed that Rioosevelt’s plurality in Missouri stood at 15,755. Of the seven counties unheared from, six went for Bryan In 1900. They are remote and sparsely settled. At the same time, Folk's plurality for governor stood at 34,883. Figures on the remainder of the Democratic ticket were still lacking. At Democratic state headquarters, It was slated that only one-third of the returns from the state on the balance of the state ticket had been revelved at. 6 o’clock. It was contended that the state ticket might not be defeated. Similar claims were made concerning the complexion of the legislature. Chairman Neidrinchaus conceded that Folk had been elected governor, but stated tflat there was not the least doubt but that the balance of the Democratic ticket had been defeated. He said: “The Republicans will have a majority in the legislature on Joint ballot of at least 14 and. perhaps, 20. This means the election of a Re publican United States senator. Re turns will show that the Republicans have elected eight congressmen and as the Sixteenth district is in doubt, its returns may show the election of one more Congressman, making nine ln all.” DECANTER AND GLASSES Left to .fudge Parker by the Will of Mrs. Hess.
