ONE STATE IN DOUBT Both Sides Are Claiming Kentucky. ROGERS DEFEATS FRISK BY 1300 Defeats Frlnk for Governor of Wash ington -Plurality in Oregon Is Piling; Up. Portland, Nov. 9. Only one doubt ful state remains Kentucky. The Democrats claim the state for Bryan by 7,800; the Republicans also claim the state, but give no figures. It will require the official count to determine the result. McKinley carried Nebraska by at least 2,000. The legislature is in doubt, and will not be determined un til the official count of Douglas county is in. The Republicans are figuring on a safe majority on joint ballot. Other states are practically as first reported. The electoral vote follows: .1900. 1896. McKinley 292 271 Bryan 155 176 In Washington. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 10. The majority for President McKinley in the state of Washington will be between 11,000 and 12,000, and John R.Rog ers, Democrat, for governor, will have something like 1,300 over Frink, his Republican opponent. The average majority of the two Repblican candi dates for congress, Jones and Cushman, will be 9,000 oi more, and the legisla ture will be heavily Republican. All the state Republican ticket, except Frink, is elected by large pluralities. All these things were made clear by yesterday's leturns. Every county in Western Washington has been heard from and the only two counties in East ern Washington about which there is any uncertainty are Chelan and Oka nogan. With these, scattering returns sliow that the only question is to the size of the Democratic pluralities. Later returns are more likely to in crease than decrease Rogers' plurality. McKinley has carried 26 oounties and Bryan 10; Frink 18 counties and Rogers 17, with one (Mason) a tie. Is Still Piling Up. Portland, Or., Nov. 10. McKinley' purality in Oregon is still piling up. Owing to an error in a former footing, his lead this morning is made to ap pear 500 less than yesterday, whereas it should be about 100 more. Reports continue to pour in that former Bryan strongholds have either gone for Mc Kinley or greatly decreased the N6bras kan's majority in 1896. For example, five precincts in Malheur county that gave Bryan a plurality of 196 in 1896, this year gave him but 44. Malheur county, which has all along been con ceded to the Democrats, is now thought to have gone Republican by a majority of SO to 100. This leaves but three counties in the state which have given pluralities for Bryan and theii combined vote is only 265. Fifty-six precincts reported yester day, making a total of 596 out of 769. McKinley 's vote to date is 42,195; Bryan, 29,676 The latest estimate of McKinleys' plurality in the state is 13.907. - Serious Strike at Tampa. Chicago, Nov. 10. Spanish-speaking cigar-makers in Tsmpa, Fla., have started a strike against American workmen, and official reports received at headquarters of the International union in this city today indicate that the trouble is assuming serious propor tions.

TRAINS CRASH TOGETHER. Three Men Killed Outright and Twt Fatally Injnred. Roseburg, Or., Nov. 12. The worst wreck ever kown on this division oc curred about daylight this morning, two miles south of Roseburg. Two freights, the regular No. 225, south bound, and a long extra coming north, smashed together on a curve in a heavy fog. Engineer Sam Hendricks, of No. 225, and Fireman Wilhelm, of the extra, were caught beneath the wreck and almost instantly killed. Fireman Ed Riddle, Engineer Walter Drennan and Head Brakeman Charles Campbell, were all badly injnred, the latter two doubtless fatally. Riddle lost a foot and suffered a broken left arm. Campbell's head was badly hurt, his right leg crushed, his left arm broken, and it is feared his back was broken. Drennan received a cut through the skullover the left eye, about three inches in length, which exposed the brain. His leg was broken and he received many bad cuts and bruises. One of the trainmen ran to town with the news and an engine and caboose were sent out after the thrne injnred men, who were cared for by three phy sicians on arriving in the city. Some time was required to get Hendricks and W7ilhelm from the wreck. The latter was pinned down in the cab, the coals from the firebox burning off both his legs to the knees. The bodies were brought to the undertakers iinmedately. The necks of both of the men were broken. The scene of the wreck defies ade quate description. The boiler of the extra's engine had literally forced its way through the other engine its full length, but neither engine had left the track. They were both partly covered by wrecked freight cars, the engine of No. 225 was entirely covered, and a badly broken-up box car surmounted the heap, apparently balancing on the smokestack. This part of the wreck caught fire once, but the flames were quickly extinguished. It is stated that the wreck was due to a misinterpretation of orders on the part of Engineer Drennan of the extra. Superintendent L. R. Fields happen ed to be in the city, and is looking after the dead and wounded men. Coroner Twitchell has summoned a jury and will hold an inquest tomor row on the remains of Wilhel'n and Hendricks. ALVORD ARRAIGNED. First Witnesses Were Officers and Em ployes of the Bank. New York, Nov. 12. Cornelius L. Alvord, Jr., the note teller of the First National bank, who is accused of em bezzling $600,000 of the bank's funds, was arraigned before United Sattea Commissioner Shields in the criminal branch of the United States circuit court here today. Wnitine E. Snow, assistant oaahiei of the First National bank, said he had known Alvord 20 years, the past 10 o) which he had been the note teller ol the First National bank. He explained in detail the duties of the note teller j and the bank's clearing house transac- ; tions. He explained the balance sheets, which showed a shortage of $690,000 in Alvord's department. The j figures showed that the shortage var- j ied, and that from October 10 to Octo bee 13 it was $700,000. Alvord's at- j torney led Snow to admit that since the latter first boeaine an officer of the : bank, two years ago, he had never j known officers of the bank to examine ! the assets of the institution. Cashier William Reed, of the First National b?nk, was the next witness. He said that the last time the bank had an examination was October 15. He bad no personal knowledge of any re port of the examination. Mcrton V. Moore, settling clerk for the bank, identified a column of figures on a sheet that was prepared for and sent to the clearing . house as having been made by himself. He explained the details of making up the sheets for the clearing house. Then, one by one, he identified the sheets made up for the banking days in October. Mr. Moore tesitfied that two figures in the sheets made up ior October 15 had been changed. The figures as they stood were not his. He did not know who had made the changes. It was brought out that the sheet had been in the pos session of Alvord ae it hadbeen mad up by Moore. Decorated for Service In China. London, Nov. 12. Admiral Edward W. Seymour-Hobart, K. C.

ON ITS LAST LEGS Tagal Rebellion Will Be Sup pressed Soon. DISCUSSED AT CABINET MEETING General MacArthnr Has Mapped Out a Careful Plan of Cam paign. Washington, Nov. 12. All the mem bers of the cabinet except Secretaries Long and Wilson attended the meeting today. They remained m session un til nearly 2 o'clock, and discussed the Chinese situation, as well as matters pertaining to Cuba, the Philippines and Porto Rico. "Two of the three hours that the ses sion lasted were occupied in a discus sion of foreign affairs, necessitated in part by the fact that the president in tends to treat this subject exhaustively in his forthcoming message to con gress. Reference was made to the ex pressions in portions of the European press that the United States policy re garding China would undergo a marked change after the election. It is author itatively announced that, after an ex huastive review of every step of the Chinese difficulty, irom its inception up to the present moment, by Secre tary Hay, the cabinet ratified every de tail, and, moreover, unanimously ex pressed its judgment that the policy so far pursued should be continued with out ohange to its logical conclusion. Accordingly, the present legation guard at Pekin will be maintianed, and sucb troops as yet remain to be withdrawn, according to the original programme, will be shipped to Manila.

The schooner Maumee Valley was driven ashore near Port Colborne. Several large steamers were driven back to Chicago after be ing exposed to the gale for a few hours, and large boats were generally seeking shelter on Lakes Surpetior, Michigan and Huron. The wind, which at many places at tained a velocity of over 40 miles an hour, was accompanied by fine enow, and, with the bitter cold, made it hard work for the mariners.

Hemmed in by flames in the upper stories of the Gifford House, an old frame structure that burned like tin der, a number of persons were burnedjor suffocated to death; others leaped from windows and suffered the loss of limbs and other injuries from which some died. Only one or two of the 45 sleep ing guests got out without injury and none saved anything but the night clothes that were worn at 12:30, when the alarm was given. Four are known to be dead, one is missing, three are fatally injuered, and more than 20 are burned or otherwise hurt. In the halls of the hotel a dozen or more persons were overcome by heat and smoke and this leads to the belief that the loss of life will be much great er than is now known. There were a number of nmegistered guests at the place. Only one person, the watchman, was awake when the fire started and he was unable to warn the guests for the flames had spread so rapidly that he was driven from the building. Escape for everyone on the second and third stories was cut off and the fire depart ment was nnable to give them any as sistance. Here the deaths occurred and in jumping from the windows the others were hurt. There were many acts of heroism in the rescue of women and a number of guests had verynairow escapes, several having their hair singed, ft will be several days before the number of dead is known. One man asserts that he saw 10 or 15 persons in the hallway overcome by smoke. If this is the case, a dozen or more bodies may be found in the ruins. ; The Gifford House was one of the oldest in Southeast Missouri, and it has been considered a death-trap ior a number of years.

LOST IN THE BREAKERS Fate of Thirty-two in Nova Scotia Wreck. the 25 BODIES OF VICTIMS RECOVERED Shore for Ten Miles Strewn With Wreckage of Hull and Cargo of the City of Mont i cello. Yarmouth, N. S., Nov. 14. Tbe shore of this country for 10 miles east and west is titrewn with the wreckage of the hull and cargo of the steamer City of Monticello, which foundered Saturday morning, and 25 bodies of victims of the disaster have been recov ered from the sea, which is still raging with terrific fury. Many people have assembled at Rockville, near where the first body came ashore, and num erous relatves of members of the crew, who nearly all belonged to points on this coast, have arrived to identify the dead. . The bodies were arranged in a room in the? public hall, and the coroner who held the inquest gave an opinion of accidental drowning. All the bodies are terribly battered. The first body was found at day light, when the zinc liteboat, which was supposed by the survivors of the first boat to have been swamped, was discovered on the shore. A few yards distant were the bodies of Mr. El xlridge, a passenger; Second Engineer Poole; Mr. Fripp, a traveler, of St. John, N. B., and the body of a seaman. All four had life belts around them. At short inteivals along the beach 11 more bodies were found, making 15 dis covered up to noon today. They had all evidently- come ashore in the life boat, and were killed on striking the beach, not one escaping. The watches in the pockets of two of the men stopped at 12:45 and 12:25 o'clock, respectively. The body of Captain Harding, of the Monticello, was found at Picnic Point, encircled with a life belt and fully dressed. It is a coincidence that the ship Peter Stewart was wrecked off this shore a few years ago in the month of July, and a boat load of men came in where the Monticello's boat was found. Half of the men were dead before the boat touched the land and many be lieve the same is true of those in the Monticellos boat. The fury of the surf is appalling in this region. The body of O. N. Coleman, a com mercial traveler, who was not pre viously known to have been on board the Monticello, has been washed ashore and identified. He represented a Ham ilton, Ont., jewelry firm, and carried samples worth $80,000. One trunk has been found. Wreckage of all kinds litters the shore boxes, barrels, pieces of ship's boats and parts of the superstructure of the steamer. James Ball, a mer chant of Yarmouth, who was supposed to bave been on boaid, is safe, having missed the steamer in St. John. Rup ert Olive was crossing the bay from St. John to Yarmouth to rejoin his own steamer. Some difficulty has been encountered in figuring out the total loss of life, as a number of passengers joined the Mon ticello at St. John without first regis tering at the booking office.
