New York, Nov. 3. The elections in
ten states yesterday emphatically de
feated woman suffrage amendments in
New York, Massachusetts and Pennsyl
vania and gave the Republicans a new
governor in Massachusetts. The Demo
crats elected Harrington governor of
Maryland. Both parties claim victory in
Kentucky. The Republicans retained
control of the lower branch of the New
York legislature. The votera of New
York rejected the new constitution,
State-wide prohibition was rejected in
Ohio. Detroit rejected a proposal that
the municipality purchase the local street
railway lines.
The defeat of woman suffrage showed
a large opposition to that measure, al
thought the leaders of the movement an
nounced that they would continue tho
fight for votes. Complete returns showed
that Massachusetts defeated suffrage by
a majority of 132,083. Tho plurality of
Samuel W. McCall, Republican, over Gov
ernor David I. Walsh, Democrat, was
6,606.
Late figures indicated the defeat of
woman suffrage in New York by about
210,000.

children and Mrs. ltufus Chase, all of

than that figure. This was due to the crossing, Winooski, their car being
fact that a larger part of theso returns struck by the pilot on the engine of a
camo from up-state counties. The per- Burlington & Lamoille railroad train
centage against suffrage in New Vork running between Kssex Junction and
City -was expected to increase the total Burlington. The car was demolished,
materially. At Republican state head
quarters it was predicted that tho ma
jority might reach 200.0(H). .
figures on the constitution were scat

of 2,079 in New York City gave 25,117

had come from only a few counties. They
were against the proposal.

Elected McCall Governor and Whole of

Besides Adding 17 to Their
Legislativt Strength.
Boton, Nov. 2. The Republican party
regained complete control of the execu
tive department of the stste government
of Mssssi'husetts yencrday alter an in
terun of five years, when Samuel . Mc
Call was elected governor by a plurality
of I,61 over (Jovernor David I. alsh
Ieniocrat. The remainder of the Repnb
lican state tiikrt was elected bv still
larger pluralities, and the Republicans
made a net gain of 17 seats in the leg
Ulsture.
One feature of the election was the
dwindling of the Progressive vote to fig
ures which deprive the party of legal
standing in the state. The Prohibition
ists, on tl otht-r bsnd. for the flrt time
with one exception, attained the status
of a legal party by polling more thaa
3 per r-nt of the total vote.

New York Republican, succeeds Joseph
A. Gouiden, Democrat, deceased.
In 20 of the larger cities 14 Republi
can, nve democratic and one t-ooiaiitit
mavors were elected.
Various forms of commission govern
ment were put into effect in Buffalo,
Niagara Falls and Newburgh. In Buffalo
Mayor Fuhrmann, a Democrat, will re--main
chairman of the commission. Two
Democrats and two Republicans were
elected commissioners. The Niagara rails
commission will name a city manager.
The mayor is a Republican. Four com
missioners besides the mayor were chosen
in Newburgh. All are Republicans. In
Elmira all parties fused against the Dem
ocrats. Hopes of suffrage leaders that the tide
which they predicted would flow against
them in New York City would be offset
by the up-state vote were shattered by
the earliest returns. The largest cities
reported big majorities against the pro
posal:
Here are some of the returns against
it: Buffalo 7HM), Rochester 4.H00, ltica
3.0(10, Troy 2.000, Syracuse 1,500, Auburn
800. Schenectady turned in a majority
of about 1,450 for the proposal, James
town 1,H50, Niagara Falls 700 and Ithaca
200.
By virtue of the defeat vesterdsr, the
proposal cannot be submitted again un
til IP19. It will be necessary for two
legislatures to vote to submit the pro
posal to the voters and one session of a
legislature numt intervene between the
two votes.

Sessions of the Maccabees, gathered in
Montpelier for the third annual state
rally, were held at the city hall yesterday
afternoon and evening and this morning,
Miss Rose Millier of Providence, R. I.,
deputy supreme commander, presiding
over the gatherings. The attendance last
evening reached a total of about 300,
somewhat less than expected before the
rally opened, but review from various
towns and cities in the state are well
represented.
Mrs. Ida Goodwin, commander of tc
view No. 8, of Montpelier, welcomed the
visiting tnuiubers of the association at
the opening session of the rally with a
few well-chosen remarks and the response
was ably made by Mrs. Eva L. McXett
of New York, supreme pass, commander.
An address was given by Mrs. Ida Per
kins of Barre, state deputy, and an in
formal reception followed. Brief reports
were made by each review and degree
work waa taken up during the remainder
of the afternoon session, the memorial
service being conducted by Rutland re
view.
Last evening Mrs. Myrtle M. Parker of
flarre, state depot r, gsve an address of
welcome and Mrs. McNett again respond
ed. A large class of candidates were ini
tiated into the association, the degree
work being done by Swanton review.
A slight variation from the original
program was msde to-day, a session be
ing held this forenoon instead of in the
afternoon, as intendnd. This change was
msde to give the members a brief respite
Iwfure the public meeting thi evening,
which will be the feature of the rally,
and at which a number of Montpelier
persons of prominence will contribute
spccchca, a dance to lie given later in the
evening.
Second Came While Men Were
Working Over First.
Two telephone fire alarms received at
the station this morning kept the regu
lars busy in niidforenoon. Whilo a de
tail from the permanent force, huving
responded to a call shortly before' 11
o'clock, was havinv a tussle with a stub
born chimney fire in the tenement house
at 30 Merchant street owned by George
vv, Jlaiin, lircinan Peter Punchclli, bupt
t. U. Lee of the water department -and
Alderman A. E, Bruce were answering
call which came when employes of the
Lentral ermont railroad discovered tire
on the proof of the freight station in
Depot square. In cither instance the
damage was slight.
A smouldering chimney flre in the Mer
chant street tenement had caused the
occupants some alarm an hour before
they called tho fire station and efforts
were made to locate the landlord. Smoke
filled the upper story and the wall paper
11 two bed rooms was scorched. lie
the firemen arrived they extinguished the
tire with chemicals and left a man at
the house to guard againska second out
break.
A box stove in the "coop" at the north
end of the freight station, where perish
able freight is stored, got overheated and
lire, going skyward through a metal
chimnev, taught on the shingle. When
the. call came tb the firemen, fsupt. Lee
and the water department auto truck
were commandeered and a hurry trip
was made to Depot square. The blaze on
the roof was extinguished immediately.
Salvaging Stock at Reynolds' Store,
Having obtained permission from the
insurance agents to remove such of the
stock as might be damaged by exposure
to the weather, employes of Reynolds &
Son, whose business block on North Main
street was gutted by fire early Tuesday
morning, were busy tit the store to-day,
The burned building had been enclosed
by a barricade and strict orders to keep
all persons out of the store are being
enforced. Metal stove fixtures and other
articles were removed to-day. Insurance
adjusters are expected to begin their
work at once, and there will be as little
delay as possible in clearing away the
aeons.
Chief C. I. Cladding is authority for
the statement that the change in the
river bed of Stevens branch, made some
years ago, was directly advantageous to
the 11 return in being able to cope with
the flames in front and at the rear of the
structure yesterday. When the river bed
change was discussed one of the favor
able arguments for the project had to
do with the facilitating of fire fighting
at the rear of the line or blocks on the
west side of the street. Had the river
been pursuing its original course close to
the line of blocks, the firemen would have
been unable to attack the fire from the
rear. As it was, two pieces of equip
ment were driven through Knterprise al
ley, where the river once flowed, and six
streams of water were playing from the
rear side.
A tabulation of damaging fires that
have occurred in the business section of
liarre since IIKiO should include the fire
which broke out on the site of the
Blanrhard block in 1004', as well as the
Currier block flre in 1002 and the Gordon
building fir a in 1914.

For the second time within a few
months disaster lias stalked in the path
of Hiram D. Warren, jitney driver, of,
Montpulier. ' A joy ride-which bad its
progression over a maze of roads in Barre
and Bawe Town and lasted from noon,
when the party left the capital, until 7
o'clock last evening, wound up as the
jitney and its passengers landed in a
cinder muck near the Bolster plant on
Granite street. Two women, Mrs. Frank
Robinson and Mrs. Frank Ferguson, were
taken to the City hospital in A. W. Bad
ger & Co.'s ambulance and the driver and
Frank Kobinson were escorted to police
headquarters and locked up by Officer
John .YV. Dincen. A fifth member of the
party, identity unknown, was missing
when police, doctors and ambulance men
began to do business in the cinder pit."
The jitney apparently suffered but little
damage in the course of its gyrations.
When the officers examined the outfit,
the car was lying on its side with the
top badly punctured and the windshield
shattered.
All four known members of the party
reside in Montpelier. So does Mr. Fer
guson, who .dropped into police head
quarters lute last night to inquiro for
is wife. According to the officers, Mrs.
Robinson and her husband were on the
rear seat of the car, while Mrs. Ferguson
and Warren had the front seat to them
selves. A pint bottle, which tho officers
say was on the front seat, was retained
y the police as a possible exhibit in the
case, the tilth member of the touring
party, so one of the women related to
the 'police, boarded the car at Depot
square, but evidently made his escape on
the brink of the pit.
Attaches at the hospital stated last
night that Mr. Robinson was suffering
from a general shock and a severe head
ache. Mrs. Ferguson lingered at the hos
pital long enough to let tlie doctors take
two stitches in her right knee cap and
then repaired to the home of her mother,
Mrs. Peter Leelair, who lives at the, cor
ner of lentral and .summer streets.
Neither woman, it was 4-ted, would
feel any serious physical effects of the
accidents, although a physician who at
tended the injured on (iranite street and
later at the hospital, advised Mrs. Rob
inson to remain at the institution until
it was definitely determined whether she
had suffered internal injuries.
An incoherent story which Warren re
lated to the police Wt night had for its
most salient feature his failure to fol
low the straight way on (iranite street,
after the car. swinging in from North
Main street had headed for Rlaekwcll
street by the River street route. Mr.
Warren said he intended to cross the
bridge at tirsnitc street and supposed
he was following the right course when
he tok a turn near the Bolster power
plant.
A mistake in choosing th wrong turn
led to tl undoing of the jitney psrty.
Warren piloted his car along th road
that lea lg to the porer plsnt and w hen
h discovered his mitale. be essayed a
circle, thinking to regain the main thor
oughfare without liacking the machine.
In so doing, he skirted a rather deep bole,
where men at thi plant are wont to
dump aecumulst ions of cindcts. Recently
siipt. J. C Wilson f the street depart
ment bad catted awsy much of the cind-r
deosit with th result that a seven
foot drop was inevitable whea the cr
was wheeled too near its e.itre. .Titney
and occupants, front and baik wests,
toppled int th bole. All are believed
to hav clung to the car sn I none of tl em
had succeeded very well in groping bis
or ber way to th surfa'-e when assist
