New York. Nov. 4. President
Hoover will be re-elected by a narrow

To say so is not necessarily favor

candidate cannot reasonably hope for
more than a small majority, if any;
that the Democratic nominee cannot

St. Vincent de Paul. Quebec, Nov. 4.
-(API - Prisoners in the penitentiary
on the Isand of Jesus rose in mutiny
today and set fire to the tailor shop.
A detachment of royal mounted po
lice galloped out from Montreal nine
miles away, and the Montreal fire
department hurried to the assistance
of the penitentiary force.
The fire was under control an hour
later, but order had not been entirely
restored.
While one group of convicts set the
tailor shop another group set
up a disturbance In another part of
the building to draw the guards away
from the flames. A third group cut
around outside the tailor shop to slash
the fire hose, but prison guar® beat
them off.
With the arrival of the Montreal
firemen, the flames were extinguish
ed. The mounted police, with drawn
guns', assisted the prison guards in
herding the men back to their cells.
Hugh Guthrie, minister of justice,
issued a statement at Montreal im
mediately after he had learned details
of the outbreak.
Therp were 15 men and two guards
in the tailor shop when the fire start
ed, he said. That was between 10 and

who been working here under the
name of Francis Mattux. but who
friends said was really Francis Mc-
Gulnn, of New Bern, N. C.. was killed
early today after a five-mile auto
mobile chase by police.
The police report said that Mattux
was questioned by a policeman who
saw him driving in circles in a Brook
lyn street. Mattaux drove away and
the patrolman turned in an alarm that
sent police radio cars converging on
his trail. Finally, police began firing
and Mattux was shot through the
head.
At the morgue a friend identified
him as McGuinn. saving he was the
son of a wealthy retired manufac
turer of New Bern. No reason was
known as to police for his change
of name or for his flight without ap
parent reason.

"Many of these are dissatisfied with

They may not vote at all or they may
vote for the Socialist candidate. Mr.

"It is also increasingly apparent
that a great many of the active

Raleigh. Nov. 4. (AP)—Although
North Carolina was swept into the,
Republican’column nationally in the
last general elections in 1928. the State
Democratic ticket came through to
give O. Max Gardner a 73.000 ma
jority over Herbert F. Seawell, Re
publican. for governor.
Republicans made a determined
fight to break the Democratic party’s
control of the State government and
their efforts were rewarded by cap
turing the greatest number of seats in
the 1929 General Assembly they had
won in years. t .
Whereas Pnesideni Hoover carried
83 of the State’s 100 counties, Gard
ner won majorities in 67, one of which
went for him by only two vote*. Ma
con county gave Gardner 2,544 votes
to 2,5*2 for Seawell.
Hoover's majority over Alfred E.
Smith, the 1928 Democratic presiden
tial candidate, was 62,000, but approxi
mately 15,000 more votes were cast in
the gubernatorial contest than for
presidential electors.
