Wltte Against Mllltla.
The neWspspers will resumo publication
tomorrow, though one and all contain the
announcement that the censors! will In
future be disregarded. All parties except
the radicals hail the Imperial manifesto
as a great advance toward a satisfactory
form of government and the abolition of
most of the evils of the ancient regime, and
appeal to the peoplo to accept the new
conditions, in good faith. The proclamation
of ''amnesty and Count Wltte's assurances
of freedom of the press have produced an
excellent Impression on the liberals, many
of whom are opposed aa much to the alms
of the socialists as they are to the evil
While meeting the liberals' demands In
two important particulars, Count Wltte has
set his face firmly against the demand for
a national militia. He Insists that the
organization of such a force would simply
place'arms In the hands of the revolution
ary organizations and enable them to bring
about an uprising. In which the. moderates
would suffer as much as the government.
In response to a request of Count Witte,
the congress of constitutional democrats
now, sitting at Moscow, is sending a depu
tation, consisting of Princes Lvoff, Golovln
and 'Kokoahkln, to confer with the count,
hut the congress has Instructed them that
their only demand la for the immediate
convocation of a constituent assembly.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES. Nov. 4. (Special. A re
quest far a change In the vagrancy laws of
this state will be made of the next legis
lature as a result of the large number of
vagrants In this city and the lack cf pre
vision to make them work. Chief of Police
Jones declared it was the fault of the dia-
lct Judge. Judge A. H. McVey at once
called- lii conference the sheriff, chief of
police, supervisor and county clerk and
read the law to them which gives the dis
trict Judge authority to order the sheriff
to build a workhouse, but gives the sheriff
no money with which to build such a work
house except his own 'private funds. It
waa shown that the county is already at
the levy limit and it was thereupon de
cided to ask for a change in the vagrancy
laws so that a workhouse can be provided
by exceeding the levy limit for Hint pur
pose. Constables Break the Law.
Judge Brennan, In the district court to
day, declared that the custom which haa

In criminal suits.

GIRL'S DEADB0DY FOUND
Winona Kewtoa of Kansas City May
Hare Been Killed After
KANSAS CITT, Nov. 4.-The dead body
of Winona Charlotte Newton, aged 19
years,, daughter of Thomas Newton, a
painter ,waa found today beside a bridge
over a small stream near Fifty-fifth street
and College avenue, on the outskirts of the
city. The girl evidently had been mur
dered. The girl's face had been disfigured
by many cuts, there were finger marks
on her throat, and a stone weighing 150
pounds weighted down the body.
A hasty examination by Deputy Coroner
Parker at the undertaking rooms to
which the body was taken disclosed that
the stomach contained a large quantity of
acid, but the officers assert that death re
sulted from violence before the acid had
had time to act. Above the right eye waa
a cut made by a blow delivered with such
force that the skull bad been fractured.
The police believe that after "the quarrel
the girl swallowed the carbolic add in an
attempt to eoroilt suicHe, but say that
ahe was murdered before the drug took
Austin Francis, the sweetheart of
Winona Charlotte Newton, was arrested
tonight. He has successfully resisted all
efforts of the police to force an admission
from him that he was with Miss Newton
at any time last night. He lives with
his mother. Mrs. Laura Cross, at 2013 Penn
street. The police are subjecting him to
a severe sweating process tonight, but ho
Insists that he went calling lust night
and that he knows absolutely nothing of
the cause of - Miss Newtoji's death. In
his pockets were found letters from the
girl, and one letter addressed to her which
had not been mailed showed that he in
tended to send her money. Francis had
been a speciul watchman for the Rock
Island railroad until last Wednesday, when
he was discharged. He is heavily and
sturdily built and appears toy be about $0
years old, although he says he Is only 21.

paign In recent years has aroused great' r
Interest throughout the country than that
which will he concluded In Greater New
York on Tuesday. The fact that party lines
have been broken down and that each of
he candidates will draw more or less
largely upon the strength which logically J
belongs to his opponent makes the canvass I
which Is now drawing to a close at once
unique and exciting. The country-wide pos
sibilities involved In the issues have made
an element of national Interest such as has
not marked any preceding local elections.
One feature Is the Interest Wall street !
brokers have manifested In the betting,
which today favored McClellan for mayor
and Jerome for district attorney. The odds
on McClellnn varied from t to 1 to 1 to 1.
On Jerome from 10 to 7 to 10 to I was of
fered. One firm of brokers. It Is said, hus
placed $160,000 against McClellan since the
opening of the campaign and stands to win
$500,000. It was estimated that all of $5o.0O0
was wagered In Wall street today. One bet
was made by T. B. Buchanan today of $1,000
even with J. J. Judge that Hearst would
not get 175,000 votes. Among the large bets
was one of $H,otf to $2,000 that McClellan
would win. and $15,000 was wagered by on
firm on McClellan at 3 and 34 to 1, In small
The party candidates published statements
today. William M. Ivins declared he was
gaining votes by thousands each day.
Mayor McClellan said he was never so con
fident as now and Mr. Hearst's managers
said he would be elected. Tammany Hall's
executive committee met this afternoon,
but Mr. Murphy declined to give out fig
ures on the election tonight.
The estimates are at variance, but the
whole Oreater New York situation tonight,
winding up as it does In one great whirl
wind of political meetings In every section
of the city, makes the prediction that the
result will be close. The speech-making end
of the campaign closed for the candidates
tonight, all addressing big meetings.
Bitter FlKht In Philadelphia.
PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 4. With scores of
orators exhorting the voters to support
their favorite candidates. Philadelphia to
night closed what haa been probably the
most sensational political campaign In Its
existence. From city hall to the county
line the city has been in a turmoil politi
cally for six months, engaged In a contest
that promises to leave Its scars for a long
time to come.
Primarily the fight Is r. ; llnst the men
who control the local republican organiza
tion, the dominant political party of the
city. There have been feeble campaigns
against this party before, but the present
movement began last May, when there was
a popular uprising against the city, against
the present lease of the gas works for
seventy-five years In consideration of
$25,000,000 in cash.
The feeling against the organisation be
camo so great that In September the men
named by It last April for sheriff, coroner
and city commissioner were withdrawn
and a new set of candidates waa placed on
the ticket at the suggeatlon of twenty-one
prominent republicans, who Issued an ad
dress to the people saying that mistakes
had been made by men In the party, and
that reform should be brought about by
the party itself. The city party held a
convention in September and named candi
dates. Their candidates were indorsed
by the democrats, prohibitionists and the
Lincoln party, which had been organise!
to oppose the republican candidate fo
state treasurer and the Independence part
Both sides tonight claim they wilt win
The city party leaders say they look fo.
a majority of 100,000, while the republlcai.
managers assert they will carry the clt
Temperance and Besslam ia Ohio.
COLLMKL'B, O , Nov. 4. The campaign
Just drawing to a close has been peculiar
even for Ohio. Dignified platform declara
tions have been overlooked In the bitter
denunciations and personal attacks that
characterized the campaign. Saloons and
horse racing and pool selling, the use ot
the veto power, Insurance management and
legislation and political boasism were the
chief themes for discussion.
In general republican speeches have ad
vocated t'Presldent Roosevelt's policy,"
but the democrats have attacked Governor
Herrlck's administration, esieclally criti
cising his use of the veto power. The
public criticism Is that which brought the
anti-saloon league Into the field against
the governor and consisted of a charge
that by threatening to use the veto against
the Brannock law. Governor Herrlck had
compelled changes In that bill. It was
through the Influence of the league which
settled the choice for democrats for gov
ernor, former Congressman John M. Paul
son, a pronounced temperance man, - a
Methodist, In which church the anti-league
counts lis leading members, and a success
ful business man.
One pha.se of the caniiwign, and one hav
ing Its particular complications, has been
the attack on political bosslsm. This wc

section of the constitution of this state sub
mitted by the officers of registration mid to
give a reasonable explanation of the same
to the registration officer."
The republican chairman claims that the
state will give a majority of JS.OOn against
the amendment. The democratic chnlrmnn
does not make any specific claim, but said:
"The amendment will surely win. and w
will ele t the state ramotrullcr and a ma

Mormon Issue In Itah.
SALT LAKE CITY. Nov. 4,-The munic
ipal campaign In Salt Lake City has been
notable for an open attack on the Mormo-i
element dominant In both municipal ami
state affairs. The American party, organ
ized previous to the last general election,
nominated a complete ticket, with Kara
Thompson for mayor, and made opposition

renominated Mayor Rlchurd P. Morris, a
Mormon, and the republicans nominated for
mayor Chief of Police William J. Lynch. :i

Is the result of his declaration not to
stand again for the presidency. But by the
very declaration that he will not be a can
didate again he Inevitably limits his op
portunities for carrying out the great task
before him. In declaring this resolution
now he Is, of course, only repeating the
avowal which he made when returned at
the last presidential election. We have not
the least doubt that he utters It again In
all sincerity and that he does derive, from
it a certain refreshing sense of independ
ence of party. But there are cases in
which even the most 'unalterable of reso
lutions are obliged to yield to facts. The
president has. owing to the exigencies of
American politics, only about three working
years of power before him and it Is difficult ;
to believe that In this short time he can
carry to a final issue the great reforms
which the Americans expect of him. He
may reply that It Is enough to have set
them going. But the struggle is perhaps
the largest and most complex that an
American statesman ha ever had to face
and It may well be that the American '
people having once been launched on it
would Insist that their president should
not desert them. It is Impossible to pre-
diet the course of events, nor need external
observers take the responsibility of offer- ,
Ing advice to the Americans. A crisis,
however, seems to be approaching when
President Roosevelt will be needed more
han ever. However, self-denying are his i
ntentlons. It may be not only undesirable,
ut impossible for him to abstain from a
