Thc returns from Missouri, 'la-y-
biiid and West Virginia are i waited
with great interest.j 'I'he first i.r.incd
is claimed by both sides, although it
is generally conceded that Folk was
elected governor by the Dcinnc.r'i'.l.t,
but the Repiijblicans claim tlic ele'r
tirm of Wal'hridgc by more than 2,-
0110.
The general belief at Wheeling is
that Roosevelt carried West Virginia by mere than 111,000, hut tho returns are extremely meagre. It is
thought probable that the Legislature will lie Republican in both
brunches, This body will 'lect a
Unltod States senator to succeed
Senator M. D. Scott, though lepubll-
ean newspapers still claim tllc stale
lor lliclr -candidate Dunn. 1'loiuftis

wcll in the Scniiidinavun counties,

His success,, however, had no effect'
on thc national tided;, .whicli  ivenl
to Roosevelt hy at least I )'J.
In Wisconsin, while tbe lepuhlican
national ticket went through ly a
heavy majority; it is thought that
the legislature,will lie so divided between Republican factions it a
deadlock may occur over the choice
of a successor to Senator Qitarles.
Figures at hand from Iowa indicate
tiie success ol the entire Republican
stat« ticket, while Colorado erohably
gave Roosevelt 10,0110 plurality. The
result of tlie state ticket is iu doubt
Scratched ballots were cast on tlic
number nl at least 40,000 and the
counting is very slow.
On the Pacific coast Republican
success was general. In California,
wiiere Roosevelt's majority will be
at least 50,000, the next legislature
will be Republican by .a la'ge major
ity. It will select a successor to
Senator Hard.
'I'he Democrats claim the election
of Hergin in Nebraska, bul returns
arc ini-oinilh'tc. Ditpnlcbes so far re
eeiyeil show lhat 202 congrossnici
have been elected hy the Republican!
against 138 Democrats, inilieatiiif
that the next house ol representatives will lie heavily Republican. Ol
tlie remaining districts 32 ale nov,
represented by Republicans and i:
hy Democrats.
In New York state the Republicans
have elected 35 state senators and
the Democrats 15. The Republicans
elected 105 asscnfblymcn and tne
Democrats 45.
Not only nrc the majorities given
the Republican national ticket in
yesterday's balloting confirmed 'by
the complete returns today, hut the
claim is made that the once solid
South has been broken and Missouri
has gone Republican.
With every doubtful state admitted
to the Roosevelt column witli majorities in some instances greater
than given McKinley four years ago,
and in some instances even greater
than those of 1800 capped by thc
possitijility that the hitherto Invincible and historically Democratic
South has been invaded, |last night's
surprise has turned to amaze even in
tlic most Republican quarters. When
at a late hour last night it was reported that Missouri was in doubt,
and some ol the Republican nianag.
ers were admitting that they'had
hopes of suecdis, it was hardly credited by the majority ol the republicans and wns laughed at by Democrats Rut le.te returns seem to in'
dlcate that these claims may be well
grounded and in thc absence ol lull
"oniplcte figures ol the vole, tlie assertion that the muddy water slate
has forsaken its Democratic allegiance on nation*' Ir-i.ucs is coming
to be nn accepted possibility. Should
the official count bear out thc Republican claim of today, Mr. Roosevelt's vote in the electoral college
will lie 343, a plurality of 210.
The sentiment which swept thc Ro-
pulilican candidates into office will
be reflected iu the next house of representatives. From figures obtained
by the Associated Press the Rupnb-
lieans have elected 233 Republicans
and 141 Democrats. The 12 remaining districts yet to be heard Irom
lining oi|iially divided between the
two parties. It seems probable that
Roosevelt bus received tho greatest
popular vote ever given a Presidential candidate.
MARYLAND DOUBTFUL.
Baltimore', Maryland,' Nov. 9.—
Complete returns [rum Baltimore
give Parker 47,070 votes and Roosevelt 47,404, a Dcliiocratic plurality
of 482. Returns from several counties
arc still Incomplete, but there is
doubt that the state has gone -:ic-
puhlican by n small majority. In tlic
six congressional dlofrlcts three Republicans and .two Democrats     were
elected with the remaining district in
doubt.

Kansas City, Nov. 4.—The Times

Chicago, Nov. !).—Despatches to
the Associated Press show that the
RepiiiJieans have elected 230 congres-
men and the Democrats 138. Of thc

WILLIAM CONGRATULATES.
Washing!  D.C, Nov. II.— President Roosevelt has received tlic following cablegram from Emperor William' "Sinccrest congratulations..

Latin in tlic cablegram is as follows:

BATES DEFEATED.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 9.—The defeat of Governor Bates for a thiol
term hy Wm. Douglas, the Democratic candidate and the heavy vote

features of yesterday's elections. Mr.
Douglas will lie the first Democratic

one small town missing Roosevelt's
plurality is 81),237; Douglas's plurality, .1(1,530. Tlie Republicans gained

New Haven, Conn., Nov. 4.— The
Republican plurality in Connecticut
tor tlie national and stale tickets arc
like a tidal wave healing everything
before experienced iu the stale. Revised returns from every cily and
town give Roosevelt the plurality of
38,1117 while four years ago McKinley defeated Bryan nt lhc high water mark of 28,558. Lieut. Governor Henry Roberts, the Repullilican
candidate for governor defeated

NAVAL DEFENCES.
One of tbe newspapers commenting
nn tlic reduction of the North Pacific: J-Vjiadinii at lOsijjiimalt makes the
deduction that the Admiralty is taking   this action to frighten Canada
into offering to pay towards the upkeep of the navy.   Such an argument
is very silly and not at all likely to
have actuated  the Admiralty  in  the
rcft-nt orders to the squadron.     Tn
the first place, leaving Canada out of
the  question  altogether,   the  Imperial government requires a naval station at Esqitimatt, as a base for naval operations in this part, of     the
vjorld.    They would never, out of a
feeling of small spite, leave the plaeo
unprotected,    nor have we any idea
that   tile present orders contemplate
nnyihiiig  of  the  kind. Britain  needs
her naval stations invspcclhe ofthe
colonics, for she has to protect her
immense merchant marine, and cannot do so Without places where the
warships may relit, and coal. Witness
lor instance the obfect lesson of the
Baltic licet. How much Russia's /problem would lie simplified II'she had
st,il ions     at. convenient ports along
tlie route her ships arc taking, like
Hiribal.li      possesses,  where  tlic  Ilct-t
could enter, stay as long ns needful
and refit properly?,  We arc not saying Canada should not take her share
in naval protection, for that in    a
duty the Dominion cannot shirk. Tlie
Dominion     government, it is hoped,
will nt the next session put in force
the programme of naval service that
has     been promised, and, using the
protective cruisers as a nucleus, gradually build up a force that will be
ample     to protect  Ciijiaila'ii   sliores
and  be a powerful auxiliary to the
CHINESE REFORMERS.
President Charlie Yip Yen, ol the
Canadian branch of the Chinese Empire Reform association, who is in
tlic ordinary life the Chinese agent
ol tho C.P.R. at Vancouver, has
been on a business trip through llie
Kootenays enrolling members in his
association. He is going to Montreal, where ho will meet the leafier
ol the movement, Kang Yu Wai who
is on his way from Loudon, where
he has been lor the purpose of securing certain business concessions Irom
tlie English government. Although
the ulterior motive ol this association Is the relorm of China politically, apparently with characteristic
Chinese sagacity tlicy are approaching tho object by first making themselves a position in the world commercially. The Chinese Empire Reform Association is therefore a vast
trading syndicate, which has Chinese
members, so asserts Charlie Yip
Yen, in every city of the United
States. It has members In Australia, Strait Settlements, India and
Great Britain. If has started a
bank in Australia, and is now about
to liny steamships to enter into
trade on a large scale between the
various affiliated firms ol the Celestial syndicate When Its power is
sufficiently apparent to dominate
China, it will be an easy matter to
take Peking and Chinese political
nielliods in hand.

'One ot the most rcnurkmblo stories
in the whole ol criminal history ia
recalled by the impending release on
license, after nearly twenty yeaiti
penal servitude, of John Lee,   wlic,
HYMNS AFTER A PLAY.

thc Grand theatre, Swansea, reccnt-

sentenced to death lor murder, r-iund ,   ,       ,        ,,      ,

in a lonely eottiup at llalliiron be, and tho strain was taken up by his
near Taruuny, England.     Lee    was j companions, and In a few seconds the
.one of the serums ana U13 motive
ol the crime was said to exist in the
fact that his wagers had been reduced by sixpence a week. Leo persisted in declaring his innocence, but the
jury thought otherwise and one bleak
morning in February he stood • n the
scnlfold in 15xcter jail awaiting the
pulling of the bolt that would launch
him Into eternity. Berry wns the executioner. He had previously tested
the levers _nd tllc trap door and they
had worked properly. But now,
when the lever was drawn, the plat^
form stuck fast, despite thc weight
oi the condemned man, and it could
not bo forced.     For eight minutes,
whole audience had risen and was
fervently singing Newman's beautiful hymn. An attempt was made to
suppress the singing, and just as success was about to crown the efforts.,
Sir Henry interposed, expressing bis
delight with the singing, which, he
said, would lie forever engraven
in his memory. Then another Welshman, with a lull, rich voice, struck
up "God Be With You Till we Meet
Again," and again the audience joined In heartily.
Sir Henry Irving stood with bowed head and was deeply moved by
thc remarkable demonstration. Speak
ing with much emotion, he said that
he should never visit Swansea again
our foreign customers pay a higher
price; yet the very suggestion raises
a doiilii as to the imminence ol the
anticipated famine, for the coal dealer is not usually a gentle philanthropist, and would surely exact that
high price now it he could, without
any' export duty to stimulate his
demands., — Traction and Transmission.

could lo move it. It was then determined to take the wretched man
oil' the platform. Lee was placed in
a corner of the shed with the white
cap still over his face, and hammers
anil saws were procured in. thc hope
of getting the drop to work, Lee
was once more placed on tho flat-
form, aud the rope adjusted round
his neck. Again the drop refused to
work. By this time everyone was
excited with tlic exception, oi Lee,
wlio continued "to protest his innocence. Once more the man was taken oil thc scatfold -and placed "some
tew pitta away while the hnnvmcrilig
and sawing went on.'
"This time it is sure to go down,"
was tile general comment as Lee
again took his stand ou tlic platform. A third time tlic gallows re-
iuscil to act I
lie was then put in tlic cell, while
the under-sheriff travelled post-haste
to London to consult the Home Secretary, who e-oinniutcd the sentence
lo jibnal servitude for life. OI all
the punishments lhat have been dealt
out justly or unjustly to Lee, the
blow that will fall the heaviest ol
all will be thc news that the girl
who promised to lie loyal and never grow tired nf waiting lor hill)
Is now the wife ol aniillier man. At
Ills trial a letter Irom her was read.
It rail1 "If it was your lot to
break stones in the street and you
will still take me to lie your wife,
I will not say no. I shall never be
tired of waiting lor you, Jack."

has anrlvcd in Rome, where he' intends to start his first establishment. The young Inventor was bom in
Florence: his lather was German,
nnd his mother French. He is only
25 years ol age, and admits that he
owes his discovery to chance.
He explained the way he is able to
"produce in relief nil sorts' of pictures by a very simjile process. The
fundamental principle ol'the invention lies in tiro discovery that gelatin sensitized with bie'homato of amnionic)', loses thc property ofsibsorji-
ing liejulds in proportion lo the
length of time it has been submitted to tbe action oi light. A cake

The difficulty In M. Bocsc's invention wns to procure a negative In
which the transparency would be
proportioned In the degree ol relict
which it was desired to obtain. Iu
order to do this the object to be
photographed is placed In a dark
room in front of a specially constructed camera and a special blue light.
BENEFITS BY BOUNTY
The report of the directors of the
Hall Mining & Smelting company
lor the year ended June 30 laprfl,
presents a full statement ol the conir
pany's accounts and reports from tbe
smelter at Nelson, The directors
state that they have benefited (by the
bounty on lead, but only lor a fcir-
tton of the-period under review, as
it took nearly six months after the
announcement of tbe bounty before
the silver-lead mines resumed effective work, but they anticipate a
still larger tonnage for the smelter
during the current year. It is stated that the war in the cast has adversely affected the company, as it
has been impossible to market their
lead in Japan as heretofore, and it
has had to be disposed of in a less
favorable market.
The gross profit was earned on
mine account of £1012 and on
smelter account ot £8334. This comperes with £7'2D ami £l(i!)l respectively last year, which shows a
marked improvement, and the1 net
profits this year amounts to £0258
which compares with a loss Inst
year of £857. The greater activity
ot the smelter this year is seen in
the fact that the value ol metal ami
bullion produced amounted to £21(1,-
iiiiii, as compared last year with
£548,000, an Increase of _«SS,000, and
there is an increase in the amount of
customs ore purchased of over £40,-
000.. . V, I
BEIT'S GIFT.
Mr. Alfred licit has presented to
the government lor educational purposes the Frankenveld farm, twelve
miles Horn Johannesburg, which lr
valued at £80,000. The farm pos-
.sessefc tbe features of advanced agricultural science. A reservoir has
been built on the Willeoeks principle, and across the Jokeskei river,
there in a mealic mill in full working order and plant lor thc treatment of timber, producing poles for
which there is a great demand irom
the mines. Eight hundred acres are
under plantation, and 200 arc laid
out in vineyards, orchards and bur-
scries.
Mr. Beit's original oiler was conditional on the government attyuir-
ng an adjoining .estate costing £20,-
000-, alter which he undertook to
spend £10,000 ill increasing the area
of the farm, bringing the total up
2,000 acres and enabling farming
to lie carried on in all its branches
including a dairy tarm and a veterinary school. The government accepted the proposal with gratitude.

PROLONGING LIFE.
Owing, says the New York Herald,
lo the improved methods ol treatment In sickness, and to such preventive practices as vacclnation,-peo-
plc do not to-day die, on the average, so soon as they did twcnty-llvc
or thirty years ago. At one time
the age twenty-three or thirty-flve
represented, the average duration of
hum,in liie. Insurance calculations
werc bused on that lact. In Much n
civilized country as England, the
period has now been extended to
about forty-two.
One might suppose that the causes
which have led to this result would
produce another effect also. It would
seem reasonable to look for more
men and women who lived to be
eighty or ninety, or even a hundred
than formerly, but an expectation oi
that sort is not now realized; Fewer people die in childhood than in
of mty and sixty than hall a con-
manhood, more people live to thelagl
tttry ago, but the length of the longest, lives does not seem to lie increased.

Tac Tjrcsceuls weiw unable) to get
their team out. last night, so there
was only one match in the city league scries played; although a scratch
team came to the rescue and gave
thf Shamrocks a good practice. The
scratch team was composed ol Sanders, A. Morrison, Hailstones, Dodd,
amil Lucicr, and while they played
well individually, the fine cor|ll)ina-
tion of the Shamrocks was too much
for them and it was only a matter
of scoring. The Shamrocks have u
very powerful team, 'quick, fast
checkers and smart at passing the
ball. They looked very lit in their
dark green uniform and gave a remarkably nice exhibition. The score
stood IS to 11, ami was not larger localise the .Shamrocks, towards tlic
end, did not try very hard to score,
but practised combination. Tho
points lor the other team werc made
Irly Dodd, who took one goal Irom the
field, and Sanders, who scored from
a fvee throw. For the Shamrocks
four goals from the field are credited
to O'Conncll, Manuel took three and
each of the Leahy brothers too'* one
RED DEVILS vs, li. and C.
There was i|iiitc a loir of excitement
over thc match between the Red Devils ami the U. and C'.'s The Red
Devils looked comically small in
their red uniforms bcsiilc the tall fellows in white and black, hut they
had their friends out. in force who
tirtc.rt them up with shunts ol joy
every time tlicy made a point. They
played up to their iiuine, but needed
two or three lengths added to their
arms to enable them to reach to the
giddy heights nt which the U. and A.
un held the hull in the air. Clarke
mil Evan Thomas werc specially active in spite of their big checks and
did not require any sympathy, while
McMillan scored from apparently impossible positions, although Wind,
'bis iheck, never left him. Sanderson
who did excellent work in the, forward line, took the .first goal for B.
nnd A.;Melulllan followed with one
for the Devils and Adam added a
couple more in succession for his own
side. Before half lime McMillan scored another, ami llnrrup duplicated ,
making the score I), and A., 8; Red
Devils, 4.
The second half witnessed a couple
of pretty runs down field hy Adam,
who was ubiquitous, playing a Inst,
but easy game devoid of roughness.
11 was very funny to see the lung fellows of the II. and A. team when
the hall got down to one end keep il
high iii the air against the wall,
while the Red Devils looked as if they,
needed scaling ladders to reach it.
However, the first two points went
to the Devils this half, goals scored
by McMillan irom free throws. Then
Adam scored and McMillan, from a
cramped up position, landed beautifully in the basket for the Davils. ;
Harrup gained another from the field !
lor the B. and A. and the score iwheu
the whistle blew stood B. and A.,
12; Red Devils, 8.

GYMS FOR-TRAVELLERS.
I Physical exercise for the p.i|»5cn-
gers on hig trans-Atlantic steamships is being developed more and
more every day, and It will not lie
ninny years belore everyone of thc
steamships ol lhc most important
lines will be equipped with a gymnasium in which will he found the
same exercising machines that are
to be found on shore. It has liecn
found by the alliccrs of ships on
which athletic games arc encouraged
during the voyage thai thc general
health of the passengers is much better than on ships where people loll
about all day, and that a gencous
amount of sucti exercise is one of thc
best preventatives of sea sickness.
As an experiment the Hamburg-American line some time ago installed
a gymnasium on the express steamship Bluechcr. where both men and
women may exercise, mid it has been
found,..since its installation, that tho
services of the ship's doctor have
decreased  to a remarkable degree.
The beginning wf regular excrcliing
ou board the big liners was thc result ol the observation of a doctor
who noticed that the majority • of
travellers who became seasick on the
steamship on which he was employed
were the people who sat about the
most. He also noticed lhat those
who, when they felt seasickness coming on, moved alrout or were at all
active werc the least affected. Now
the ship to which he is attached
never comes lo porl without a talc
of spirited athletic events at sea,
and wMh a' ruddy-looking lot of p,i
scngers.
"And how about your church dc^l?'
"Oh,    we're    nut worrying   about
that' Our pastor, the Rev. Goetrj-
morgcir,' Is" going 1d 'hnve:,the"omciiii"
board form a company, take over the
church, nml Irani form the indebtedness into preferred stock."
"Would that be a Christian operation?"
"Well, in speaking ol it, he doesnt.
just use that expression. He calls
it  'applying the higher  finance.' "—
