Republican Chairman Will Not
Concede Election of Wilson
Until Definite Figures
Are at Hand.
President Fears He Will Not
Have Working Majority Be
hind Him in Congress.
New York, Nov. 11. Chairman
Willcox called on Mr. Hughes in the
afternoon and had an hour's talk with
him, after which the chairman reiter
ated that the re-election of President
Wilson would not be conceded until
after the official count. It probably
will be a week, he said, before this is
New York, Nov. U. With Repub
lican National Chairman Willcox still
awaiting the official count -in close
states before conceding the defeat
of Charles E. Hughes in the national
election, the latest returns today in
the close states of California, Minne
sota, New Mexico and New Hamp
shire still presented on their face no
change affecting the president's ma
jority in the electoral college.
Mr. Wilson still led in California,
New Mexico and apparently New
Hampshire, and Mr. Hughes in Min
nesota, with only a few districts yet
to be accounted for in each state.
President Wilson in Williamstown,
Mass., was reported to be chiefly con
cerned over the complexion of the
next congress, which was still in
doubt today.
The president's plurality over Mr.
Hughes in the total popular vote, ac
cording to the latest estimate, based
upon incomplete returns, is 403,312.
His total vote was 8,563,713 and that
of Mr. Hughes 8,160,401. .
Wilspn Worried Over House. -
Williamstown, Mass., . Nov. 11.
President Wilson is not concerned
over the refusal of the republican
campaign managers to concede his
re-election. The chief thing worry
ing him -is the political complexion
of the next house of representatives,
because of its effect on his plans for
legislation. He has not yet received
final information on this point.
The president is understood to take
the result of the election as a vindica
tion of his past course and as ap
proval of the general outlines of pol
icy in domestic and foreign affairs
set forth by him in his speeches as a
candidate for re-election, i
After his return to Washington to
morrow he will catch up immediately
on official business, and in the near
future will begin the preparation of
his December message to congress.
Nothing has been given out as to
whether he will remain constantly in
Washington until congress convenes.
The president took a short walk
this morning. He was invited to wit
ness a foot ball game this afternoon
between Massachusetts Agricultural
college- and Williams. Un his return
trip tonight he will be given a recep
tion at Albany, N. Y. Democrats
there have organized a parade in his
honor and he may speak briefly from
the observation platform of his
private car. i
Vote of New Hampshire Closer
Concord, N. H., Nov. 11. Presi
dent Wilson received a plurality f 63
votes over Charles E. Hughes in New
Hampshire, according to certified re
turns from all except small precincts
made public by Secretary of State
Bean. In arriving at this figure, Mr.
Bean announced, he included in the
Wilson total 289 votes cast for him in
Ward Two, Dover, but omitted
through error from certified returns,
and by accepting as probably correct
the newspaper returns for Dores
chester, the missing precinct, which
had not reported officially.
Hughes Holds Minnesota.
St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 11. With at
least thirty-eight precincts to be heard
from in addition to the results of the
vote of the soldiers on the border, Mr.
Hughes still is maintaining the slight
lead he has held over President Wil
son for the last two days in Minne
sota. The last figures received give the
republican nominee a
.can u.
The special commission sent to
gather the 2,138 soldier votes on the
border returned to St. Paul today.

Democrats Make Clean Sweep
of the State Without Any
Two-thirds of the counties and
four-fifths of the vote of the state
have been heard from, and the re
turns tabulated on the heads of the
ticket. Sixty-six counties give the
drys a lead of 16,418, and the rest of
the state will increase this materially.
On president, Wilson has 27,648 over
Hughes in sixty-six counties, and his
lead will also be increased. ' Hitch
cock is 11,175 ahead of Kennedy in
seventy-seven counties. Sutton is
running closer to Neville, being but
5,295 behind in seventy-one counties.
Neville's lead is safe enough to insure
his election, however, as the twenty
two counties still to hear from will
very likely increase this.
Chief Justice Andrew M. Morrissey
has a lead of 3,335 over Justice Jacob
M. Fawcett for the office of chief jus
tice of the supreme court in the sixty
seven counties heard from. For as
sociate justices Cornish, Sedgwick
and Dean are leading, the latter hav
ing pulled up ahead of Judge Barnes.
Fred Beckman, running; for re-election
as land commissioner, is the only
republican candidate on the state
ticket who has any chance for win
ning, but even he has fallen behind
Shumway, democrat.

Writer Accused of
Trying to Blackmail
Countess Bernstorff
Washington, Nov. 11. Kard Armga
rad Graves, a magazine writer of New
York, was arrested by Department of
Justice officials here today, charged
with attempted blackmail of Countess
von Bernstorff, wife of the German
The arrest was made after the em
bassy officials complained that Graves
had tried to sell them what purported
to be letters from persons in Germany
to the countess and members ot the
embassy staff and other documents
appearing to be official cipher dis
patches from the Berlin government
to the embassy. Uthcials said the
letter on which the formal charge
against the prisoner was based appar
ently, was a communication to the

Smyth in Prospect
For Federal Judge
r. ...... 1. c ai. . i :
J-h.evivai 0f the candidacy of Constan
tine J. Smyth of Omaha for appoint
ment to a federal judgeship. It is re
membered that Mr. Smyth, who has
been an assistant to the attorney-
general, was strongly recommended
for the succession to Judge Munger
which went to Judge Woodrough and
it was generally understood at that
time that his claim was held in abey
ance lor the next vacancy. A vacancy
now - exists on the federal court of
appeals for this district through the
death ot Judge Adams ot St. Louis,
and still another vacancy if pros-
yect by the expected rctircTjut ot
udge Sanborn, who has completed
the necessary period of service to en
title him to retire. Mr. Smyth's
friends are expecting him to be
named for one of these places,
although probably no appointment
will be made until congress convenes
in Decemeber, because ratification by
tne senate is needed.
Japanese Favor Wilson;
Feared Protective Tariff
Tokio, Nov, ll.-.The election of
President Wilson is welcomed by the
Japanese press, which praises his
peaceful disposition and believes his
continuation in office augurs well for
the furtherance of American-Japanese
friendship. Business circles are
pleased, as they feared a republican
protective tariff would be a blow to
, Japanese exports to America.

Latest Count on JV3 . r Con
gressmen Gives 0. 0. P.
Lead of Three Members
Over Bourbons.
Further Returns May Cause
Shift in Situation, it Is
New York, Nov. 11. The probable
complexion of the Sixty-fifth con
gress was further complicated today
by late returns from one close district
and a reclassification of the politics
of three members of the California
delegation. The count in the one
doubtful district, that in New Mexico,
is not vet complete, but theelection
of Walton, democrat, is probable,
according to latest returns.
A reversal in the Tenth North Car
olina district, where complete re
turns indicate tne election ot con
gressmen J. critt, republican, by a
plurality of thirteen votes, broke the
tie which existed on the tace of the
returns, for congress, up to last night.
A reclassification of tht. politics of
three members of the elected Califor
nia delegation, John J. Nolan in the
Fifth district, Everis A. Hayes in the
Eighth and Charles H. Randall in the
Ninth, in accordance with their polit
ical designation in the Congressional
Record, also apparently was favorable
to the republican side.
The names of the three members
appeared on the republican and dem
ocratic tickets, and Kandau, in addi
tion, was also on the progressive
ticket, in the returns as previously
announced two had been credited as
democrats and one as a republican.
The Congressional Record, however,
classes Nolan as a progressive, Hayes
as a republican and Randall as a pro
As a result of these changes the
republicans from present indications
will have a small plurality in the
house, latest figures giving them 216
members, the democrats, 213, and
other parties, six.
There are a number of close dis
tricts where on the face of complete
returns members are apparently elect
ed by very small pluralities. 1 lie
Third New Jersey district, where
Kouerc varson, republican, is appar
ently selected bv eleven votes over
Thomas I. Scullyrdemocrat, and pres
ent member ot congress, is a case in
point. The official count next week
may change some ot these close dis
tricts. -

Sayville.) The following announce
ment is from the admiralty:
'On the night of November 9-10

without success on Ustend and Ltt-
brugge (Belgium). One British ma

tured, and the aviator, a British of
ficer, was made prisoner. . -
Un the morning ot November 1U

British biplanes between Nieuport
and Dunkirk. It shot down one and
forced the other to retreat.
"In the forenoon three of our bat
tleplanes met a superior British aerial
squadron ott ustend and attacked it
immediately. After a combat the en
emy was forced to withdraw. Our
machines returned to their base, hav
ing suffered insignificant damages.1
The British war office announced
last night that thirty British airplanes
had encountered a hostile squadron
of thirty to forty machines which was

From Army This Week
Washington, Nov. 11. Major Gen
eral George W. Goethals, governor
of the Panama canal zone, will pass
into the retired list of the army on
his own application, dating from No
vember 15, next. Army orders today

New Kingdom of
Arabia Asks the
U. S. for Recognition
Washington, Nov. 11. Formation
of the new kingdom of Arabia, with
Grand Shcrif Hussein Ben Ali as
Monarch and Mecca as the capital
was reported to the State department
today in an undated telegram from
Mecca signed by Sherif Abdullah,
minister of foreign affairs. The Ara
bic nation, Abdullah said, would
henceforth be an active member of
the society of nations and confidently
looked forward to recognition by th
United States. The new kingdom re
suited, he said, from an unanimous
meeting of the notables and citizens
of the country, who definitely threw
off the yoke of the committee of the
union and progress at Constantinople.
The State department knows noth
ing of the new foreign minister and
little of the circumstances surround
ing the proclamation of the kingdom
and does not know how to reach the
foreign minister's office in the absence"
of any consular or diplomatic repre
sentative in Arabia. Investigation
into the situation, however, may be
possible through British or French
The request for recognition is ex
pected to be met in much the same
way as other government attaches
during the war. Egypt when the new
khedivate was established in Decem
ber, 1914, consular officers were in
structed to recognize the new officials
as de facto. With respect to the new
government of Poland the United
States will postpone final action until
peace it established.

British Paper -Thinks
Elected Wilson
London, Nov. Ill The Manchester
Guardian attributes President Wil
son's success to the rallying of a auf
ficient number of the progressive
votes which Roosevelt gained in 1912.
"It seems a small thing," thit newt
paper continues, "but yet It may Indi
cate a new epoch in American po
litical life. The. progressive move
ment arose entirely independently of
foreign . politics. Many progressive ,
votes given to Wilson are given with
the mental reservation that they will
not go again to a democratic candi
date unless Wilson confirms the faith .
of- the progressives by consolidating
what is still only tentative. If he does
that he will have established himself
as the ablest statesman since Lin
coln and he may be destined to play
a part in the achievement of peace,
which, will give him a place in world
history." . . ,

Grand Island, Nov. 11. (Special
Telegram.) Considerable mystery is

with a considerable sum of money
with which he was to pay the rent
on a farm he occupies, the payee be
