FORTY STATES BALLOTTED
Democratic Gains in the East and
Looses in the West-House Re
publican by About Twenty-
. ' '.' ' " Five.;"".
New York, Nov 5. Elections
were held yesterday - in 42 states,
rand up to an early hour this morn
ing the returns indicate that the
control of the National Congiess
remains with the Republican party,
While official returns may r make
trie working majority olthe Kepub-
iiuan party in iuo nouse a uiose
one, there is no doubt ' that it will
be sufficient for all party purposes.
From a National standpoint, -Nthe
1 l xl TT - 1
control of the lower branch of Con
gress was the real conte&t. Many
of the states elected Legislatures
which will choose United States
Senators, Tjut the result of these
elections have in no way imperiled
the Republican majority in the up
per body. In tJnose states which
elected Governors' there was no
state in which the party in power
was not continued in that position.
In some of the states, however,
there was a decided change from
the vote cast two years ago. In the
East the interest centered in the
great states of New York and Penn
sylvania; in the latter because of
the conditions brought about by the
recent coal strike, and in New York
because of its bearing upon the Re
publican candidate for - Governor,
New York re-elected Governor B
B Odell and the entire state ticket,
although the falling off in the Re
publican plurality, as compared
19liO, was enormous. At a late
hour last night Od ell's plurality,
was placed at about 10,000. The
Democrats made a slight gain in
the Legislature, but not enough to
injure the election of a Republican
successor to Sanator - Piatt. The
Democrats also made gains in the
Congressional elections,the unofficial
figures placing the delegation at 20
Republicans and I7 Democrats. - '
In Pennsylvania- Samuel W
Pennypacker, Rep., was elected
Governor by a plurality of more
than 150,000, and - the- Legislature
is overwhelmingly Kepubhcan.
The Democrats elected two, and
possibly three of the Congressmen.
The indications in JNew Hamp
shire are that Nathen S Batcheldor
Rep., candidate for Governor, was
elected over Henry E Hollis Dem.,
by .a plurality of at least 10,000.
There was a heavy shrinkage ; from
the vote of two years ago. The
Legislature is Republican in both
branches by large majorities, insu-.
ring a Republican successor to
Senator Gallinger, who will prob
ably succeed himself.- ,
In the West, known as Kansas,
Idaho and Utah, were storm cen
ters because of the fight for United,
States senators," - while in - Ohio
Idaho, Illinois and several other
states, close Congressional districts
attracted much interests
In Illinois, while official figures
are lacking, there is every indica
tion that the Republican ticket has
been elected by a good majority,
and that the next Legislature . that
will elect, a successor to United
States Sanator Mason will be strict
ly Republican. r -
The Republicans in Connecticut
elected their entire ticket by a plu
rality estimated to be at least I5,
000, with the General . Assembly
In Maryland the election was
only for Congressmen, the Repub
licans elected four of six members;
Virginia 's election was confined
to the election of Congressman," and
returns show that the Democrats
have elected nine of the-10, with
one district doubtful. '' - - -'The
Democrats majority in North
Carolina is estimated to be about
63,000, with a solid democratic
delegation in Congress and a Dem
lennesse rolled up a Democratic
majority for Governor, and tha"eri-
tire State was elected bv about 37,
000. x "
In Michigan the .Rertubl
elected Governor Blisr and the en
tire state ticket and 11 of the 12
Congressmen. . The Legislature i3
strongly Republican', thus assur
ing the election of ex-Secretary . of
War Alger to r the Uuited States
Jar3ey there was no
c nging in the political situation
Massachusetts went strongly Rep
ublican, the entire state ticket - of
that party being elected, the plu
rality for the -; head of the ticket
being 37, 479. :
In Rhode Island
have elected L. F.
nor, but, with this
licnet will go
through. . -
In California' the returns indica
te that the Governorship is in dou
bt. The Legislature will be Repub
lican. - - .
The latest reports from Montana
give the state to the. Republicans.
However, the Democrats do not yet
concede their defeat v
In Kansas the Republican state
ticket has been elected, with eight
Congressmen. The Legislature
-will be safely Republican. Returns
- i .
from Nevada point to a fusion vic
Republican gains are con
ceded throughout the state of Colo-
jrado, although returns are so mea-
gerjtnas ii is impoasiDie ia give re
liable estimates of the result.
Rsturns received from Iowa go to
show that the Republicans have el
ected their state tisket by 75,ooo
majority .-V -.
Baise, Idaho, Nov. 5. The elec
tion yesterday proves to have been
much more of a Republican land
slide than- the reports last night
indicated. The Republican state
ticket has carried the ' state by a
majority close to 600, Burton L
French for Congress, ha3 a little
larger majority, and .some of the
candidates will fall a little less, but
as a rule the ticket went through
straight. The - Republicans have
18 of the 2I members of the Senate,
and 35 of the 46 members of the
House. This gives them a total of
35 on joiht ballot of 14for theDem
ocrats. . - . ;
This result disposes of all the
Democratic candidates for Senator,
and brings the Republican aspi
rants into prominence. Theae are:
WE Borah, of Boise; Judge D W
Stranfdrod, of Poc atella; W B Hey
burn, of Wallace, and ex-Senator
George L fohoup. .
San Francisco, Nov:- 5. Comp
lete returns from San . Francisco
ancTpartial returns from all over
the state indicate that George C
Pardee, the Republican nominee for
Governor, is elected by a majority
of 200 or 3o . The plurality of 9oo
given by San Francisco to , F K
Lane, the Democratic nominee has
beeh almost wiped out by Republi
can majority in the interior coun
ties. The Republican vote . for
Pardee in Southern California is
justifying the estimates of the Re
pnblican campaign committee, and
has undoubtedly elected bim.
Complete returns from n85 pre
cincts out of 2277 in the state out
side of San Francieco give Pardee
69, 46o, Lane 6o,637. The complete
vote in San Francisco stood: Pardee
24,129, Lane 33,687, The Legisla
ture, which will choose a United
States Senator is largely,Jlepubli
cad on joint ballot. The Republi
cans have ' lost two members of
Congress Kahn in the Fourth and
Loud in the Fiftb. They, will be
succeeded by Livernash and Wynn,

Lizzie Boyce, of Pad.onia, a number
of years ago, took care of an "old
man who took suddenly ill while

ter Ivor, of Wilmer, in East Koot
enay, was lost in the mountains for
nearly a week, and' when iouna
was nearly insane. He was almost
naked, was badly . frostbitten and
had been without food for nearly
five days.- 'He had to have four of
the toes of the left foot amputated.
The searching party found him
quite close to a creek, under some
logs, with his head resting on a
rock. He was lifted onto a horse,
but was so weak that he had to be
held on all the way ,to Wilmer.
Thanks to a splendid constitution,

Salem, Nov., 4. Superintendent
of Public Instruction J H AckerT
man has rendered the following de
cision, which declares that the re
sidence of the parent or guardian
rather than the place where the
pupil is enumerated, determines the
place where a child is, entitled to
attend school . without paying
tuition. . . -
"School boards shall "admit free
of charge to the schools of their re
spective districts all persons between
the ages of 6 and 21 whose parehtsJ
or guardians reside in such districts
at the time of making application
for free admittance to. such schools;
even though such persons may have
been at the last enumeration legally
enumerated in some other district.,'
This ruling will make a change
in the practice in this state, for it
has been generally fuld that if a
child is enumerated in one district
and school money, is drawn from
him there he cannot attend else
wherewithout paying tuition."
Boston, Nov 4 In connection
with the 15' murderous, assault cases
which 'have 1 occurred in Cambridge
Brookline and Somerville in the
last few months, two of which have
uesulted fatally, the police today
arrested Alvan G Mason of Boston,
a member.of the pianor. manufact
uring firm of Mason & Hamlin, a
prominent clubman and a graduate
of Harvard. State Officers Proctor
and Dunham went to the home of
the Masons, in Newbury street aud
searhed it thoroughly, Nothing
was found which would indicate
that Mason was connected with
any of the mysterious assaults.
Mr Mason is a middle-aged man
but he has been the victim of .ment
al trouble for which he wastreated
at the McLean asylum at Waverly.
About a year ago he was permitted
to leave the institution. 1 Since
that time, it is said, he has been
permitted to go and come at will,
and the fact shae he had been seen
recently about the localities in
which the assaults occurred led to
suspicion againet him.:
.The peculiar assault cases which
haue terrorized : Cambridge and
vicinity as well as other suburban ;
sections, began last June. During ,
the summer, there was half & .
dozen victims of unknown as
saults, each of whom was struck
with a blunt instrument. Early
in October, Misa. Agnes McGhea
was assaulted, in Someryille, and
died from the effects. 1 During : tha :
same month eight other cases fol
lowed, the last of which occurred
last Saturday, when Clara A" Moiv
ris a laundress at the asylum, was
assaulted on the grounds of tha
McLean institution, and beaten
with a . blunt instrument' Misa
Morris died Sunday.
Mr Mason made no objection to

I entered school ' Sept; 16. The
general assembly met in the chapel
on the second floor at 9 o'clock, the
faculty, new and old students and
visiting friends were there. " After
the singing and devotional exerci
ses an address was given . by Me '
Ressler our new President, which
was both encouraging and interest
ing. For many of Us it was the
first time we had seen Mr Ressler '
and I am sure we were favorably
impressed. The assembly closed at
10 o'clock, the remainder of the7
morning being spent in making
out our study card. It did not take
old students long to make them
out, but the new students of whom
there were many took a longer
time. In the afternoon we bought
our books, straightened up our
rooms or did anything we desired.
The students reunion was given
in the evening under the auspices
of the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. After
the program a pleasant time was
spent in getting acquainted ; tha
old students feeling at home tried
to make it pleasant for the new oner.
