' Tha doctors at Bellevue hospital. New

thought, to be a case of psetido hydropho

summer there was a good deal of discus

many Authorities that probably most of
them were spurious.
i The case now under observation In Belle

DEMOCRATS ARE INSISTENT
Want All of the Appointire Offices
that Are in Sight. 1
PROPOSE TO AMEND THE LAW
Appointment to Be Veste la Gr-
eraor Instead of Hoards Coa
trolled by Repahllraa
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
MNCOL.N. Nov. 7.-(SpeclaI.) While the
election returns so far reported to the sec
retary of st-ate by the various counties
indicate that the republican state ticket
with the exception of governor has been
elected, there is little consolation In that
for the appointees now holding office by
virtue of a commission from a board.
The democratic legislature has a program,
no It was learned today, which will turn all
these offices over to the democrats. The
legislature will be asked by the leaders of
the winning party to place the appointing
power in the hands of the governor in
place of the haunds of boards as is the
case now In some instances.
Should the democrats be able to carry
this program out the secretary of the
State Board of Charities and Correction,
Joel Piper,' though now appointed by the
governor, the land commissioner and the
state superintendent, will lose his place
even If the republican state ticket wins out.
Two county treasurer examiners are now
appointed by the state auditor. Should the
democratic program carry these appoint
ments will go to Mr. Sliallenberger.
The republican secretary of the state
banking board and the republican state
bank examiners will also go the same
way. They are. now selected by the at
torney general, the auditor and the state
treasurer, vnder the proposed program
they will give way to democrats.
The state banking board may be abolished
entirely when the democrats pass their new
law to force a levy upon the banks to
make up a fund to guarantee deposits.
"There will not be a republican left if
he can be knocked out of office by legtsla
tlve enactment," said a prominent demo
crat this morning. "The legislature will
simply pass a law changing the power of
appointing to the governor or to boards
which the democrats control. We have too
many democrats yelling for Jobs, to let any
tepublican stay in if we can put him. out
I am satisfied the clerk of the Board of
Charities and Correction, the bank exami
ners and the county treasurer examiners
wljl have to go. The legislature will attend
to that the first thing."

the head of the sugar Interests of Amer
ica. Men were eager to get his name to
aid In promoting other enterprises, and
he embarked in a great number. When

him as a witness In regard to Sugar Trust
affairs he refused to answer quest (or. In
relation to campaign contributions, nnd
was tried for contempt of !ourt, but ths
Judge presiding at the trial directed tha
Jury to acquit him. At what seemed th
summit ot his career he retired from the
offices in the American Sugar Refining

place the Sugar Trust, to which technical
objections had bt-em made. The announce
ment, created a marked decline in Sugar
stocks, but with the choice of his succes

condition of the health of Mr. Searlea
caused his retirement, but he at once de
