jumped to the same extent, and mutton
chops went up 3 cents. The advance by
the packers is more than 10 per cent on

STATEMENT BY CHAIRMAN COOMBS
As the Returns Stand, Bryan's Ma
jority Is Pat at 7685, and Beolc
hom's at 4X10.
LOUISVILLE, Nov. 9. With unofficial
returns from every precinct In Kentucky,
the Courier-Journal puts Bryan's major
ity at 7635 and Beckham's at 4110. The
county boards canvassed the returns In
every county in the state today, and 0
counties out of 114 In the state, whoso
official returns have been received to
night, do not materially change the ma
jorities of the foregoing. While ther Is
no doubt that the facial returns will
vary somewhat with the unofficial. It Is
hardly possible that the majorities of 7635
and 4110 shall be wiped out unless the un
expected happens in the counties where
the unofficial returns are not In.
Leslie Coombs, chairman of the Repub
lican campaign committee, tonight made
the following statement concerning the
"We have discovered great frauds per
petrated by the Democrats in various sec
tions of the state. In Breathitt County,
frauds amounting to 400 votes In favor
of the Democrats have been discovered.
In that county, the Democrats refused
to allow the Republican Inspectors Inside
of the booth, and the precinct, which
usually goes Republican by a majority
of 58, was carried by the Democrats by
30. In another precinct in the same coun
ty, the Republican challengers were put
out of the booth by force, and the in
spectors were refused admittance. In an
other precinct, the returns showed that
only 65 Republicans voted, yet there are
140 who give their names and are willing
to give affidavits that they voted the Re
publican ticket straight. The Republicans
usually curry that precinct, and this year
it went Democratic by 150. Other frauds
In Breathitt County Indicate that we
have lost over 400 votes.
"Numerous and flagrant frauds have
been discovered in Logan County frauds
that permeated the entire vote. In Olm
stead precinct, the returns show that only
80 Republicans voted, yet we have posi
tive proof that 150 was the number, and
other frauds In the county will amount to
fully 400 votes. The entire Third District
is permeated with the Goebel methods.
Republican voters who were challenged
were not allowed to make affidavit, and
were relieved by direction of the Demo
cratic Sheriffs. Democrats challenged
by the Republicans were allowed to vote
without making affidavit by the decisions
of these same Sheriffs. In one precinct
In the City of Bowling Green, the election
officers refused to certify to 179 votes be
cause there was a blur on the ballots.
Mr. Moss will contest his election in his
district end there is no doubt that it
will be given to him.
"The frauds in the Third District were
too -flagrant to stand an honest investi
gation, and in many places In th& Eighth
District Democratic challengers were
sworn in as Deputy Sheriffs and wore
badges in the booths. In the Seventh
District, over 400 Republican voters In
the City of Lexington were deprived of
their votes by the delay tactics practiced
by the Democratic officers, while the
Franklin and Owen County returns were
padded so boldly that it cannot escape
the notice of any one acquainted with
"There are also extensive reports of
frauds In Lawrence, Rowan and Mason
Counties, of the Ninth District, with
great efforts to Increase those frauds in
the final count. The Commissioner of
Lawrence County attempted to throw out
the vote of the precinct of Charley on a
trivial technicality. It gave the Repub
lican candidate 127 majority. In a num
ber of counties, the Commissioners re
fused to allow any inspection of the work
of election officers by representatives of
the Republican party. Reports of fraua
of five to 10 votes to a precinct are ss
numerous that the inference cannot be
escaped that it was systematically
planned beforehand. There Is no ques
tion that if the face of the returns fails
to show Yerkes' election, we can make
specific exposures that will Bhow that he
has been defeated, not by a majority of
the voters of Kentucky, but of the fraud
ulent use and the advantage given the
Democratic party by the Goebel election

NEBRASKA FOR BTKHTLET.
His Plurality Will Be About 7000
Governorship In Doubt.
OMAHA, Nov. 9. Practically complete
returns for the Electoral ticket and on
Governor show that McKlnley carried Ne
braska by about 7000, and that the Gov
ernorship is but a few votes either way
and will require the official returns to
decide the result. It is claimed by both
sides that the plurality will be but 100 or
200. whichever way it may go. The stato
ticket will be divided, the fuslonlsts get
ting the Lieutenant-Governor, Attorney
General and Land Commissioner, and the
Republicans the Auditor, Treasurer and
Superintendent of Instruction.
The present representation In Congress
will remain undisturbed. Stark, fus, is
elected In the 4th district, by &; Robin

ST. PAUL. Nov. 9. Samuel R Van

The Pioneer Press, on Its reports, places
Van. Sant's plurality at the latter figure.
Democratic Losses In Missouri.
ST. LOUIS, Jfov. 9. Returns from 110
counties out of 114 in the state indicate
that Bryan's plurality will be between
40,000 and 45,000, as compared with 5357
In 1S93. Dockery, dem, for Governor, will
receive between 25,000 and 32.000 plurality,
as, compared with 63,248 received by
Stephens in 1896. The total vote in Mis
souri is estimated as follows:
The fact that there was no fusion In
Missouri between . the Democrats and

FIRE AT BILOXL
Navy Building Burned In, Mississ
ippi Summer Resort.
NEW ORLBANsTlo., Nov. . Blloxl,
Miss., situated on the sound 80 miles from
New Orleans, was swept by a. terrific fire
this morning, which destroyed upwards of
100 buildings and rendered hunderds of
people homeless. Blloxl is a town of 7000
people and a well-known Summer resort
for Mlsslsslpplans and. Loulslanlans and
a Winter resort for Northern people. It
has a small fire department and contains
many frame buildings and the fire simply
burned until It had nothing further to
feed on. The fire started shortly "after
midnight in a saloon near the Louisville
& Nashville depot and after destroying
the depot, swept through to the beach, a
distance of several squares. No lives
were lost, but many of the poorer people
lost all their possessions. The Catholic
Church, school and convent, two news
paper offices and several fine brick Btores
were among the buildings destroyed. The
total loss is estimated at $300,000, with
$125,000 of Insurance.
University Gymnasium Burned.
SOUTH BEND, In.. Nov. 9. Fire, which
started about 3 o'clock this afternoon in
the gymnasium of the University of Notre

one of the largest college gymnasiums;
In the world. It Was erected in 18S8-S9.
It -was large enough b permit football

While th6 flames wero still raging, the

REDDING, Cal., Nov. 9. A fire, the
origin of which Is attributed, to chemical
action, is burning In the Peck tunnel of

London Papers Consider Cboate's
Speech as Significant.
LONDON, Nov. 10. The Standard and
Pally Telegraph dilate editorially upon
the importance of Mr. Choate's assur
ances regarding the Anglo-American am
ity at the Guild Hall banquet last night.
The Dally Telegraph thinks the American
Ambassador's tone was quite significant,
and regards his glowing eulogy of Lord
Salisbury as perhaps the most remarkable
feature of the banquet. The Times says.
"A Guild Hall audience always looks to
the American Ambassador to contribute
to the enjoyment of the evening, and it
very rarely looks in vain. Mr. Choate
fully maintained the reputation estab
lished by his predecessor. He managed
to relieve a seriousness which threatened
to become too marked for a convivial oc
casion by turning asldo into the pathB of

evil results that might have been Inferred
from Mr. Bryan's electoral speech, but

The Times, like other morning papers,

Salisbury's Utterances at
Lord Mayor's Banquet
WARNING AGAINST AN INVASION
His Only Cheerful Remarks Were His
- Expressions of Satisfaction With
LONDON, for. 9. What Is probably the
most brilliant of all functions in England
the Lord Mayor's banquet took place
this evening. It will be memorable even
to Americans by reason of the remark
able utterance of Lord Salisbury, who, in
HE-EEEOTETJ GOVERNOR OF WASHINGTON.
the presence of 900 guests, Including Unit
ed 'States Ambassador Choate, the mem
bers of the British Cabinet .and, many jo?
the leading men of Englandspokeas fol
lows of the American clectfoh: "
"Wo believe that the cause which has
won is the cause of civilization and com
mercial honor. Wo believe those princi
ples to be at the root of all prosperity
and all progress in the world. Therefore,
we claim that we have as much right to
rejoice in what has taken place as the
distinguished gentleman (referring to Mr.
Choate), who sits at my side."
This was followed by loud and prolonged
cheering, which made the gold plate on
the oaken shelves shiver and the great
rafters of the Guild Hall ring and ring
again. Lord Salisbury's incursion into the
National politics of the United States
was preceded by on apology, in the course
of which he said:
"One of tho circumstances which grati
fied mo most during the past year has
been tho hearty feeling displayed between
this country and the' United States. I
hope Mr. Choate will forgive if there Is
any irregularity in my expression, "it is
quite wrong for a Secretary of Btate to
make any observations with respect to
the internal policies of another country1;
but-1 am soon to give tip my office, and,
In view of this abondonment, which is
close at hand, I hope that Mr. Choate
will forgive me for expressing the su
preme satisfaction with which all of us
have heard of what has recently taken
place in tho United States."
Mr. Choate, replying a few minutes
later to the toast of the diplomatic corps,
declared that Lord Salisbury had ex
pressed with such truth, simplicity and
earnestness the result of the election that
he (Choate) would hesitate to add to it,
although he would venture to congrat
ulate tho noble lord upon the fact that
his remarks had been made after, instead
of before the election. (Laughter.)
Except In its references to the United
States, the speech of the Premier cast an
extraordinary gloom over the gorgeous
banquet. Following directly after the
Colonel commanding the City Imperial
Volunteers, Lord Sallsoury startled his
hearers, who caught the drift of his re
marks, by satirizing the war fever, al
though praising the courage of the sol
diers and declaring that the passionate
admiration of military valor evinced by
the populace must produce a change of
attitude on the part of the outside world
when viewing English character.
Then, with lowered voice and almost
trembling accent, he went on tp speak of
the price of victory and the ravages of
death, dealing especially with the Queen's
bereavement in the loss of Prince Chris
tian Victor. Finally, with bent head and
hands clasped, he uttered a hope, almost
a prayer, that Lord Roberts might bo
spared the sorrow now hanging over him
by reason of the critical condition of his
daughter. Tears sprang to the eyes of
-women, and men moved uncomfortably
in their seats. The- silence and solemnity
Awakening from self-abstraction, the
Premier reviewed the events of the last
12 months. Mr. Kruger and the Empress
of China, ho went on to say, had forced
war upon Great Britain. He maintained
that th'e British War Office deserved great
credit for the way in which it had handled
"Despite nebulous and facetious at
tacks, we should bo glad to Improve all
the defects of the War Office," he con
tinued; "and our "utmost efforts will be
devoted to that task, but I should rather
deprecate any unnecessary examination
into what has occurred. You will not add
to the enthusiasm of your troops by do
He dilated upon the strengthened ties
between the mother country and the colo
nics during the present year, and poked
fun at the delay consequent upon the
European concert when dealing with
China. It was not appropriate for him,
he declared, to comment upon negotia
tions while In progress, but he Bald he
would make an exception In the Anglo
This," ha remarked, "represents the
feelings of most. If not all, the powers si
lled. It is Impossible to key ' too much
emphasis upon the Integrity of China and
the 'open door,' and I think It a matter
of great advantage that tho powers should
have expressed themselves in favor of
these Federal principles, for IX they are
achieved the issue of tho China problem
need not concern us very anxiously."
He maintained very earnestly that the
idea of invading China with "our scanty
force" or of "approaching the stupendous
task of governing China, instead of leav
ing it to be governed by the Chinese,"
was most dangerous.
Relapsing into pessimism. Lord Salis
bury admitted that the trend of recent
events has almost put on end to the hopes
of the Russian Emperor and others who
took part in the peace conference at The
Hague. His extraordinary speech closed
with a fervid appeal to the people of
England to maintain their defenses in
such a perfect condition "-that we shall
not be exposed to any sudden Interrup
tion of the peace upon which our pros
perity depends. The supreme condition,"
exclaimed the Premier, "is that no re
form, no improvement Is of the slightest
value unless security against external.
Interference is obtained by -putting our
defenses hrsuctt'a pMUpnat.,noaccl
den'may ,happen beyd&jojjxtionlers
that shall make ouratsecuHty doubt
ful." The majority of Lord Salisbury's hear
ers believed that this warning referred
to the possibility of French antagonism.
Mr. Choate's speech consisted chiefly
of a humorous sketch of th'e history of
Downing street, which he sold was named
after a Massachusetts bby. 'In concluding
his address, he expressed his belief that
"so long as Lord Salisbury and McKlnley
continue to hold tho reins of government,
there will be no danger of. any disturbance
of the honorable and friendly relations
now existing between the United States
and Great Britain."
George J. Goschen, the retiring First
Secretary of the Admiralty, who used the
occasion for a dramatic farewell to pub
lic life, bespoke the support and confi
dence of the British people for his suc
cessor, the Earl of Selbourn. Other speak
ers were Lord George Hamilton, Secretary
of State for India; Baron Halsbury, Lord
High Chancellor: Lord Alverstone. Lord
Chief Justice; Charles Thompson Ritchie,
the newly-appointed Home Secretary, and
Sir Robert Bannalyne Flnley, Attorney
General. Lord Salisbury, winding up the pro
ceedings, pledged the health of the new
Lord Mayor, saying that some of the
younger men present "will live to see the
day when members of Parliament from
the Orange and Transvaal Colonies will
be present on such an occasion."
The enormous crowd was dotted with
brilliant state, military and municipal
uniforms, with which were Intermingled
In a wonderful mass of moving color the
wigs and robes of alt the great Judges;
the court costumes of the members of
the Cabinet; the scarlet of the regulars
apd the khaki of the Imperial Volun
teers. A dance followed the banquet and
continued to a late hour in the shadows of
the grim statues of Pitt, Nelson and Wel
lington. Among the celebrities present were Sir
Francis Jeune, president of the tribune,
divorce and admiralty division of the Su
preme Court of Judicature; William St.
John Broderlck, the newly-appointed Sec
retary of State for War; Sir Thomas Lip
ton, the Maharajah of Kapurthala in full
regalia, and all tho available civil and
national dignitaries who were heralded
with a series of trumpet fanfares that
would have done credit to feudal days.
The Lord Mayor's Show.
LONDON, Nov. 9. The Lord Mayors
show was witnessed today by large
crowds. It consisted of the usual gilt
and ermine features. Although the crowds
were unusually dense, they were easily
handled bythe large police force on duty,
in striking contrast to the recent parade
of the City Imperial Volunteers. In the
vicinity of Ludgate Circus, ambulance
wagons were held in readiness, but there
was no serious crush
The procession moved on through ad
miring throngs to tho Law Courts, where
the ancient ceremony of taking the oath
was carried out. The new and old Lord
Mayors were heartily cheered. There
were no emblematical cars, but there
-were mounted men clad in British uni
forms in use from ISOO to 1870. A model
of the guns of the British cruiser Power
ful, which were used at the siege of Lady
smith, was much cheered, as were also
mounted men representing India, Canada
