Taft's plurality as 839. This
may be changed when the com-
plete vote Is in but it looks good
for Taft carrying the state.
(By Associated Press.)
NEW YORK, Nov. 5. Maryland
and Missouri continue to hold the
stage in the final estimate of the
votes in Tuesday election and upon
them largely will depend the vindica
tion of Chairman Hitchcock's pre
election prediction that Taft would
have 325 electoral votes. Taft already
is assured of 301 and Bryan 15C.
Missouri with her 18 votes hangs in
the balance with a decided inclina
tion to fall Into the Taft column, ac
cording to the latest reports, while
Maryland also bends Taftward with
her eight votes but the returns from
Maryland are so close that it will
take an official count to determine.
In Missouri, Hadley, the Repub
lican candidate for governor, has a
plurality in excess of 15,000.
Colorado seems to have settled
into the Bryan column, while Indiana
has gone for Taft. West Virginia
seems to have gone to Taft by 20,
000. The Republican majority in the
national house of representatives has
been cut, but that party will still
have a control. Speaker Cannon will
probably be reelected.
The results so far as the other"
parties are concerned were a disap
pointment to the managers. The
Socialists expected "Million for
Debs" will fall far short of that and
perhaps be not half that number.
The Prohibitionists did not carry the
vote with them that they had hoped
and the Independence party's vote
was small in comparison with the ex
pectations of the managers.

Government Retains 64,126
Acres In This County
WASHINGTON, Nqv. 5. Accord
ing to land office classification, there
is in the neighborhood of 1,000,000
acres of vacant, unreserved agricul
tural land In Oregon today, subject
to entry under the homestead laws.
This estimate does not include any
of the lands in Malheur and Harney
counties, where there Is still much
agricultural land remaining, though
most of It is of such character that
it must be cultivated by the dry
In like manner there is said to be
between 1,500,000 and 2,000,000
acres of public timber land, outside
of forest reserves, -most of which is
still subject to entry under the tim
ber and stone act.
It is true that the cream of Ore
gon's farming lands have passed to
private ownership, and the best pf
the state's timber lands have been
acquired by lumber companies, or
taken into reserves, where they are
no longer, subject to entry. Yet the
fact remains that there Is still a con
siderable area of desirable land, out
side the arrigated districts, that is
subject to settlement and entry, and
there is room for many more fam
ilies in the state.
A report shows that there are still
5,305,477 acres of unreserved public
land subject to entry In Malheur
county, and 4, GOO, 00.0 acres In Har
ney. These vast areas are classified
as "grazing, timber and farming"
lands but the respective areas of
each grade are not given.
, There is comparatively little public
land remaining in the W.Iiairrtte
valley counties, and little mo-e n
Southern Oregon, outside of forest
reservations.' In the entire Portland
land district there Is but 14C.431
acres remaining subject to settlement
and 3 S 3,2 4 3 acres in the Roseburg
district. Most of the remaining land
in the Portland district Is listed as
"broken timber and grazing" lana
and the same classification holds
good with regard to the Roseburg
district, save that there are still
some mineral and fruit lands in the
Much Land for Stockmen.
Out in Lake county there remain
2,301,808 acres of unreserved pub
lic land, three-tenths of it timber
land; one-tenth mountainous; three
tenths agricultural and three tenths
grazing. Crook county has about
half as much land remaining, mostly
rough country suitable only for graz-
ilng, however, save for small isolated
tracts which are adapted to agri
In the entire state there Is 1C,
957,913 acies of unreserved land,

MEN STAY TOO LONG AT
CHURCH TO SUIT WOMEN
Complain That Cigars and Mov-

ATLANTIC CITY, Nov. 4.
Asserting that the men's
church, in which husbands and
fathers are allowed to smoke
and sit In shbrt sleeves, Is too
attractive, a score of women
have complained to the Rev.
Sydney Goodman, pastor of the
new idea congregation, that O
their male relatives would
rather go to church than stay
home. The protest took the
form of a letter read before the
male congregation by tho
pastor last night. He refused
to give out the names of the
women who made tho protest.
"Church is all right for men,
but our husbands are staying
out as late Sunday night to at-
tend your service as they do on
lodge nights," said tho . letter.
"We Insist that some of tho at-
tractionB bo cut out or else' the
services be cut down so they
ca,n get home In decent time."
,'So pleasant have been the
Sunday night meetings at the
men's church that the attend-
ants insisted on the services be-

with moving pictures, soft
drinks and cigars. As a result

PARIS, Nov. 5. There is renew
ed activity over the attitude adopted
by Germany In tho matter of the
Casa Blanca Incident. This is the
case of the desertion of several Ger
mans who had enlisted in tho foreign
legion of the French Army. Ger-1
many asked the arbitration for the j
question of the international law in-i
volved in the right 'of Germany to ,
protect her subjects who had enlisted
in the foreign legion and who subse
France accepted this proposal pro
vided that the arbitration should
cover the question of whether or not
Germany inspired the1 desertions In

counter offer and France has declin
ed to modify her attitude.
FRANCE IS HITTER.
(By Associated Press.)
PARIS, Nov. 5. While It is not
believed in official circles that Ger
many will go to the extent of mak
ing tho Casa Blanca incident the ob
ject of an ultimatum, considerable
disquietude exists that Germany
seeks to Inflict diplomatic humilia
tion upon Fiance ns a diversion from
the situation which has arisen In
Germany from tho publication of
Emperor Willinm's now famous in-'
tervlew. France Is resolved to stand
firm. Paul Gambon, the French am
bassador to Berlin has been instruct
ed to notify Germany that Franco
maintains her view thnt tho whole
question should bo arbitrated and
that in the meantime she declines to ,
release the deserters, to reprimand ,
tho officers concerned or to exchange
regrets with Germany.
GERMANY STANDS PAT.

BERLIN, Nov. 5. The vlow point
of Germany In the Casa Blanca af
fair is explained pfficially by the for
eign office today as follows: "All
wo demand is, a simple expression of .
regret from Franco for tho violonco
employed against the German con- j
sular office at Casa Blanca, an ex- j
pression such as would be demanded
by any nation whose officers have
been subjected to an attack. Unless
this coming forthwith, thoro Is no
object In continuing further negotia
tions. Wo can't permit this point to
be submitted to arbitration for we re
gard it as a point of national honor
that such regrot should bo express
ed We don't doslro tho French of
ficials concerned to bo teprlmanded,
that the French soldiers be punished
'or the adoption of any moasuros of
dlscipllno whatever. Concerning the
other points of difference, wo are
prepared to arbitrate. Wo acknow
ledge somo things might havo occur-
'ied on tho German side which could
have been avoided while tho French
also must admit from her side that
unnecessary aats havo been committed."

OAKLAND, Cal., Oct. 31, 'OS.
Editor Coos Bay Times:
The steamer M. F. Plant was tow
ed safely Into San' Francisco bay on
the 29 inst., at 2:30 p. m.. I was
over to look at damage done her
while she was on dry dock at tho
United Engineering Works. I see
that her rudder post and skag Is bent
hard over to post and her propeller
and shaft bearing were not Injured.
The life-saving station inspector,
Capt. Emery, and myself wrote a let-,
ter of appreciation to Captain Samuel '
H. Burtis in behnlf of the passengers
for his skilful management and cool
ness, while crossing Coos Bay bar on
tho 24th day of Octoben when the
ship was disabled by heavy seas" while
The bar apparently being smooth
when three tremendous seas seemed
to spring up just ahoad, seomingly
frnm nnHilnc. Tho uhln nnssed
through the first and second safely
with the exception of second broach
ing her to the post a little and be
fore the ship could come up again,
the third sea lifted the ship stem
high, leaving the heel resting on bot
tom and swinging hard over to port
causing the steamer nearly to upset,
nnd disabled tlfo steering gear, turn
ing completely around threo times
while getting safe beyond buoy. No
passengers were Injured or lost with
the exception of Captain Burtis an1
wife who got tossed hard against- tho
door of ho.r stateroom Injuring lmr
knee painfully but not seriously.
Every passenger expressed their good
feelings toward tho capt'tln and offi
cers In delivering us safely at our
destination, will try hard to return
on steamer Plant which, I think, will
bo ready for her run again soon.
