There is no opposition to the state ticket with the exception of governor, the Socialists having nomi nated Clay Fulks as a candidate against Gov. Brough. This is under stood, of course, to be only a nominal opposition, as he will receive only the small, negligible vote. There are three proposed amendments to be voted on, but there has been no cam paign either for or against any of them and their fate is largely a mat ter of conjecture. The only campaign that has been conducted has been the publication of the proposed measures in the newspapers of the state for the last few months Hew many have read and carefully studied all of them?

Id2wl HOSTILITIES END WITH AUSTRIA AT 3 O’CLOCK TODAY Conditions of Armistice Not to He Announced Until Tomor row—Furnish Index to Terms For Huns. Paris, Nov. 3, 0:50 p. m.—Official announcement was made this evening that an armistice has been signed with Austria. Hostilities will cease at 3 o’clock Monday afternoon. The conditions of the armistice will be published on Tuesday. Vienna, via London, Nov. 3.—“In the Italian theater of the war our troops have ceased hostilities on the basis of an armistice which has been concluded,” says the war office com munication issued today. “The conditions of the armistice will be announced in a later com munication.” Washington, Nov. 3.— Armistice terms which the Austrians ha\e ac cepted are expected here to furnish a clear index to those which the su preme war council at Versailles is preparing for Germany. Consequent ly their publication will carry greater significance than otherwise would at tach, since the Austrian surrender has been discontinued in advance by the internal disintegration of the dual monarchy and the collapse of the Austro*Hungarian forces on the Italian front. Official announcement that the ar mistice had been signed reached the state department today. In making this known, officials gave no indica tion of the terms imposed, nor was there any explanation of why cessa tion of hostilities had l*een delayed 24 hours or more after the actual sign ing of the articles of surrender. The generally accepted view, however, seemed to be that it was desired to have virtually all Italian soil freed of enemy troops before the Italian ar mies were committed to end their attacks upon the routed Austrian forces. Military men here said the terms which the supreme war council had prepared would make it impossible for the Austrians to renew hostilities, probably including the disarming of the enemy troops and occupation of strategic points as well. Some of I these, namely Trent and Trieste, al ready have been occupied by Italian and allied forces. Free movement of the allied forces through Austria to attack Germany from the south, should the supreme war command decide such a stroke necessary ni the future, also is said tc he stipulated. Unofficial reports from Vienna today said the Germans ; were preparing for such an attack by ! feverishly digging trenches on and fortifying the Bavarian frontier. i __ i Al TO M ANUK Al'TURKKS GRANTED PRIORITY Little Rock, Nov. 1.—F.

W ith Italian Forces in Northern Italy, Saturday, 3 p. m., Nov. 2.— The battle continues with the Italians and their allies completing the des truction of Austria’s mighty army. It is estimated that 3..000 Austrian can non will he the total taken by the Italians in addition to vast quantities of other war mate iat. The allied forces arc ever pressing on toward the frontier n the moun tains. They already have reached the Valmugana where the Italian line was a year ago. The word “strategy" cannot be used in Austria’s retreat, which is a pell mell etfort on tl * part of the various ho lies to save thems-dves. The Aus trians are fleeing helter-skelter, fight ing in the mountains when obliged to do so. On the plains they are merely putting up rear guard local fifhts. blowing up bridges as they go along. The long lines cf enemy troops on the roads are being pelted with the machine guns of allied airplanes. The retreat of the Austrians also is being hindered by the condition of the roads. For the same re; son the Italian ad vance in some regions is slow. The Austrians are leaving their wounded by the roadside or in houses. Two thousand Austrian wounded were deserted in Feltre without attention or medicine. Udine has been evacu ated. The civil population everywhere complains that they were stripped of everything of value by the enemy in the invaded provinces. Thousands of cannon are being captured by the Italians in addition to great quantities of war material. At Vittorio, a big petroleum deposit was found, the Austrians not taking the trouble to burn it. Great quanti ties of telegraph wire also were left undestroyed. At Belluno a large depot of food and material was found by the Ital ians ; .e allies frequently captured long trains •>» artillery, one train be ing taken at Razi, near Feltre, it having been abandoned by the re treating Austrians in their haste.
