12 THE MOKNTNG- OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 190. CROWDS SEEK NEWS Bulletins Displayed DownTowri Are Eagerly Read, RESULT,., LOUDLY CHEERED People Greet Announcement of Roose velt's Election With Great Enthu slasm While Democrats Get No Opportunity to Be Glad. X maelstrom of human beings, sure Ins backward and forward, a mass of cheering-, applauding: humanity, fighting for positions before bulletin boards, a perfect din from rattles and horns and human throats, thus was the election of President Roosevelt received In Port land last night. At Sixth and Alder streets, within i the shadow of The Oregronian building, ! the streets were jammed with people, and from the corner, in every direction, people hurried back and forth cheering the name of Roosevelt. Throughout the city returns "were being received. There were more screens and picture ma chines than ever before. Societies re ceived the messages in their respective headquarters. Business houses displayed bulletins for the benefit of the crowd. The crowds began to gather as early as S o'clock in the evening, when the first messages relative to the results in the East began to come in. Rapidly in creasing in numbers as car after car brought hundreds of people from all parts of the city, the crowd grew to mammoth proportions, filling the streets and crowding the walks. Every ono was interested in New York, and all awaited anxiously the news from thatstate. At 5:25 o'clock the searchlight on the top of the tower of The Oregonian building flashed out suddenly, the light swept around a circle, and came to a rest pointing due north. This, the sig nal that Roosevelt had carried New York, was greeted with cheers and an unlimited amount of noise from horns and whistles. Throughout the city fac tories, shops and foundries saw the sig nal, and the whistles began to blow. From that time until an' early hour this morning the crowds read the bulletins faithfully, glanced now and then at the flashlight, glorified in the triumph of Roosevelt and expressed pity for the badly-beateh Parker. The great searchlight occasionally was turned Aipon the crowds on the street below, then to the northward again, that people might read the sig nal. As the returns from the other states began to come in the enthusiasm of the populace increased. Every bul letin was greeted with cheers. Pic tures of eminent Americans, flashed on the screens, brought forth rounds of cheering and applause. Caricatures were greeted with laughter. The pic ture or tne stars ana stripes was enough to set the crowd wild, and the photographs of McKlnley and of Roose velt thrown on the numerous screens caused bedlam to break loose again. Shortly before 8 o'clock, after nu merous bulletins had been received, the searchlight on The Oregonian tower was suddenly shut off. Everyone no- tlced it, and took it for granted that another signal was about to be flashed. Though the bulletins had told the Stpry to the initiated, there were hun dreds in the crowds who did not know. and who were waiting for confirmation of their hopes or fears from The Orego nian searchlight. Suddenly the signal came. At first a thin streak of light emerged from the searchlight. It was pointed half way between a vertical posi tion and1 a position due east. For a few moments it hung in this questionable posi tion, then the full force of the light was turned on, there was a brilliant flash, and tne iignt turned swiiuy upward, assuming a vertical position. "Roosevelt!" screamed the crowd. And then the shouting and the noise commenced. Up and down the streets marched bodies of young men, cheering lustily. The 3hrill and tender voices of women could bo heard occasionally in the din. Horns were blown as hard as young lungs could blow them. Demo crats hunted niches in the walls and door ways, and screened themselves from ac quaintances. "Walt until you hear from Indiana," sang a uemocrat. Indiana was soon heard from and the Democrat retired. One by one the states -yvere being added to the Roosevelt column. One by one tne electoral votes escaped Judge iParjcer. Ana tnen came the death blow. un tne screens was snown a message stating mat earner had congratulated Roosevelt. That settled It, "What had happened before was but a drop in the well to what happened afterward. Where one horn was blown before, ten were blown afterward. Men cheered louder. A wandering band struck up a lively tune. Men moved from crowd to crowd, inciting the people to further Jolll- n canon. At all the theaters the bulletins were received and read between acts. Elec tion returns were reoeived at the Y. M. C. A., and tho occasion was mado general good time. An orchestra dis coursed sweet strains and all who chose to go were admitted. At tho Com mercial Club President Cake had ar ranged a programme, and election re turns and a good time were mlmtled properly. A special -wire was put In for transmitting tne news, several of tho larger business institutions received the bulletins. Fireworks, though not great quantity, were discharged. Tele graph office, were besiesred and men. senger boys worked overtime. Tho best of order was maintained. Chief of Po lice Hunt having the entire police force on duty during the day and night. The crowd refused to disperse until all the states had been heard from. During the early morning hours the shouting and cheering continued. It was about 4 o clock this morning when the streets were comparatively clear. and the people had gone to their homes and to bed to dream of four more years or Kooseveit and prosperity. "WOMEN PAY TO VOTE. Political Social Held at First Congre gational Church. Electioneering tactics were reversed at the political social which the Ladles' Aid Society of the First Congregational Church gave yesterday afternoon, and instead of being 4bougfat" at the polls, those present paid 30 cents per ballot for the sensation of voting for a real Presi dential candidate. The regular Austra lian ballot system was used, and elec tioneering was not allowed within ten feet of the polls; In fact, it was the real thing In politics, and every lady there declared -she liked it immensely. There was a box for Roosevelt, one- for Parker and one Xorthe Pro his. "Teddy" seemed to be doing such a land-office business that Dr. House became fearful he was being supplanted In point of popularity, and opened up a private ballot-box of his own, which resulted In splitting the party and keeping the Roosevelt majority lower than it would have been otherwise. The Prohibitionists only succeeded In getting 33 votes, which will, no doubt, have a depressing effect on Dr. Swallow when he hears It. There was perfect order at the polls, and the balloting was conducted in as quiet a manner as was possible under such exciting clrcum- I IlMKilli V B ? ffllilB ooccincNT nnncPVFT.T I ill mkwmWMm lit I . f x . wimiwBmimnmm i m ires .

"Why bless my soul, this Parker box seems to have something in it," ex claimed a well-known member of the society, holding the box gingerly in her hands and giving It little shakes. "Well, we'll have to open It and see," said another, and the lid was unsealed in a jiffy. "Well did I ever In all my bora days! Three votes for Parker three votes! Now what do you think of that?" Indignation was rife. The Judges and clerks put their heads close together, and there were mutte rings of disapproval aud ible to those who waited in painful sus pense for the outcome. The voters stood around and eyed each other suspiciously, and made vague remarks about their fam ily having been Republican ever since -.f r i in it. nan mi ii i ii i ii i in ii ii i hi 1 1 1 hi i ii iii ii i in ini t the Revolution. At last a judge seemed ready to speak. "I would Just like to know." she said, "who in this crowd had the temerity to vote for Parker?" The silence- was ominous. There was a readjusting of sllk-llned -skirts and a few moved their chairs, or felt their back hair to see if it was all right. At last a woman rose, and all eyes were upon her. Surely she must be one of the reprehensible parties. "I cast a vote foe Parker," she bravely acknowledged, "but you see he's my cousin, and I couldn't very well help It. My husband voted the straight Republi can ticket this morning, though," she hastily added, Prohibitionists Work at Palls. Probably 40 Prohibition workers stayed at the different polling places in the city throughout the day. Fully half of this number were wssea, who handed out tracts explaining the local-option law and the county prohibition measure to prospective voters. There was bo 41s turbance at any of the "booths, so far as the Probibltloalsts were coaceraed. There was. no regular Prohibition head quarters opes . last evening.

"Chairman Republican Stato Central Committee." If this was the time of Kero, of Na poleon, or of Pharaoh, this land would be drenched in human blood and dis rupted by civil strife, and it may be anyway." Henry Gray sat at the table in the Democratic headquarters and com menced to erupt. Judge Alex Sweek held up bis hands for silence. 'Here are the returns from New York," he sold, while his eye grew bright with hope deferred. The messenger boy escaped through the side door, while the document was read amid a deep and deepening silence. "I don't believe It. It can't be true," said Pat Powers, after a time, as he beat slow tattoo on the floor with bis big stick. Citizen H. "W. Parker thrust his head in the door. "They say that Parker has given up the fight and congratulated Roosevelt," he exclaimed. The bunch admitted the telegram, but doubted its verity, and the gang sat in solemn silence. Outside there was noise and glee, inside was sorrow and lamen tation. Hope had fled, and with it strength, and the few of the faithful who bad gathered to listen to the glad tidings from New York clung frantically to the one consoling thought W. I. Douglas had been elected Governor of Massachusetts. Woe to the country." lamented N. A. Perry to the solemn group. "Woe to the country. Now we have the bull in the china store for sure." "Bryan is the next President of the United States," and Bert Haney arose to speak. "This Is what comes of the party seeking false gods. There will never be a Democratic President until the Dem ocrats vote their ticket." The Bryan following could not stand for the Parker medicine." said some one. We lost our cnance in expiainea R. A. Miller. "If we had carried the election that time we would not have been thrown out of power In 30 years." At the Republican headquarters an ex pectant group sat around the state chair man's table, and as one message after another came In applause broke the si lence. It was all expected by the men who had been watching, but the com pleteness of the fulfillment filled them with wonder. Senator John H. Mitchell, David M. Dunne. Postmaster John MlntoK Slg Slchel and others filled the chairs. There was not much talking; for there was too much news to be heard. Like the little boy, fresh from Thanksgiving, they were too content to be demonstrative. They were happy. But each looked the other In the eye and said, "I told you so," while Chairman Baker repeated his axiom, "That 30,000 will look like 30 cents." VOTE AT -HIGH SCHOOL. .Pupils Have Mock Election and Vote for Prohibition. The vote taken at the High School yesterday strongly Indicated that Ore gon will be solidly Republican for many years to come, for the rising generation, who will be voters in the near future" polled a heavy vote for Roosevelt. His plurality was 478, while Parker only got 63 votes. Debs Z3 and Watson 1. The Prohibition ticket stood 432 for and 217 against, giving the rum-fighters a major ity of 275. Equal suffrage was in full swing and the girls cast their ballots and talked politics as freely as the boys It Is the policy of tho present school administration to have the pupils famil iarize themselves with National and state' politics, and also with the balloting sys tem In vogue. They seem to take to this kind of education very kindly and thor oughly enjoyed yesterday's experience. The vote was as follows: Roosevelt . 655 63 Porker . . .

All Offices In Worcester Block Closed, and Travel Very Light. Yesterday was a holiday in the railroad offices at the "Worcester building and nractlcally all business was suspended. The heads of all the departments left early In the forenoon for their homes and allowed their clerks to- close up shop. 'On railroad row the usual business ac tivity was observed, it being the idea of the ticket men that people had to travel whether Presidents were elected or not.

The sale or local tickets was a little heavier, perhaps,, as many of those who are at present living in the city, but have their homes elsewhere, left on the early trains to go noma and vote. The long-distance travel has. been very light for several davs. which condition is charged by the rail road men to the desire of the travelers to cast their ballots before leaving their homes for an extended journey. VOTE IN COUNTY JAIL. Prisoners Hold Mock Election With Sample Ballots. The prisoners in the County Jail were supplied with sample ballots by Jailer Grafton yesterday, so that they might amuse themselves by holding an election. The result showed 35 votes for Roosevelt, 20 for Parker and 1 Socialist. On the prohibition question the vote was 42 against and 12 for prohibition. Each prisoner marked his own ballot without assistance, and the jailer on look ing over the ballots afterward- found the men under his charge to be intelligent voters. Every ballot was correctly marked. BOND ISSUE DEFEATED. St. Johns Votes Against Issuing $10, 000 School Bonds. At the election yesterday in St. Johns the question of issuing $10,000 bonds, submitted to the voters of that district for erection of a 4-room addition to the present schoolhouse, was defeated by vote of 55 to 40. This leaves the proposed addition in the air. It may mean that a lesser amount will be appropriated. At the meeting of the taxpayers some time ago it was set forth that all the present rooms were overcrowded, and that it would take $10,000 to add four rooms. NO SHAVES AFTER 8 O'CLOCK. Barber Shops Compromise the Closing Hour Difficulty. No barber shop In Portland will be open after 8 o'clock in the evening except Sat urday from now on. This has been agreed on by all the boss barbers, and the three which had extended their hours to 10 o'clock have compromised with these clos ing at 7, and have agreed to close at 8 o'clock. This outcome was anticipated by the boss barbers a week or more ago. They were- merely waiting for the Portland Hotel barber shop to find that it wa3 wasting time keeping open until 10 o'clock. and now that shop has capitulated. Its Dronrletors have found that they lose by remaining open after 8 and have willing ly agreed to close witn tne others at tnat hour. AN OBJECT LESSON In a Restaurant. A physician puts the query: Have you never noticed in any large restaurant at lunch or dinner time the large number of hearty, vigorous old men at the tables; men whose ages run from 60 to SO years; many of them bald and all perhaps gray, but none of them feeble or senile? Perhaps the spectacle Is so common as to have escaped your observation or com ment, but nevertheless It Is an object les son which means something. If you will notice what these hearty old fellows are eating, you will observe that they are not munching bran crackers nor gingerly picking their way through a menu card of new-fangled health foods; on the contrary, they seem to prefer a Juicy roast of beef, a properly turned loin of mutton, and even the deadly broiled lob ster is not altogether Ignored. The point of all thl3 is that a vigorous old age depends upon good digestion and -plenty of wholesome food and not upon- dieting and an endeavor to live upon bran crackers. There Is a certain class of food, cranks who seem to believe that meat, coffee abd many other good things are rank pol sons, but these cadaverous, sickly-looking individuals are a walking condemnation of their own theories. The matter In a nutshell is that if the stomach secretes the natural digestive juices in sufficienC quantity, any whole some food will be promptly digested; If the stomach does not do so, and certain foods cause distress, one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal will remove all difficulty, because they supply just what every weak stom ach lacks, pepsin, hydro-chloric acid, di astase and nux. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do not act upon the bowels and in fact are not strict ly a medicine, as they act almost entire ly upon the food eaten, digesting It thor oughly and thus giving the stomach a much-needed rest and an appetite for the next meaL Of people who travel, nine out of ten use Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, knowing them to be perfectly safe to use at any time and also having found out by experience that they are a safeguard against Indi gestion in any form, and eating as they have to, at all hours and all kinds of food. the traveling public for years have pinned their faith to Stuart's Tablets. AU druggists sell them at E0 cents for full-sized packages and any druggist from Maine to California, if his opinion were asked, will say that Stuarfs Dyspepsia Tablets is the most popular and success ful Temedy for any stomach, trouble. s if, it leaks easy csaifort. il yur LEWIS m ft iim t m ffftai MS M m I m I i fl lHJv "makes F1 1 I.

BEAUTY OF SKIN PUR1TY0FBL00 Anckut and Modern Ideas These Interesting Subjects. UP-TO-DATE NIETH8DS Far Purifying and Beautifying the Skin, Scalp, Hair and Hands. Socrates called beauty a short-lived tyranny, Plato a privilege of nature, Theocritu3, a delightful prejudice, Theophrastus a silent cheat, Carneades a solitary kingdom, Homer a glorious gift of nature, Ovid a favor of the gods. Aristotle affirmed that beauty was better than all the letters of rec ommendation in the world, and yet none of these distinguished authorities has left us even a hint of how beauty is to be perpetuated, or the ravages of age and disease defied. Time soon blends the lily and the rose into the. pallor of age, disease dots the fair face with cutaneous disfigurations and crimsons the Roman nose with unsight ly flushes, moth, if not rust, corrupts the glory of eyes, teeth, and Hps yet beautiful by defacing the complexioa, and fills the sensitive soul with agony. If such be the unhappy condition of one afflicted with slight skin blemishes, what must be the feelings of those in whom torturing humors have lor years ran riot, covering the skia with, scales and sores and charging the blood with poisonous elements to be come a part of the system until death? It is in the treatment of torturing, disfiguring humors' and affections of the skin, scalp and blood, with loss of hair, that the Cuticura remedies hare achieved their greatest success.
