EIGHT PAGES tlllli LITTLE VOTE SIHLY PRIZED t'«>TKST FOR (iOVEItXOR CAUSES SEARCHES TO BE MADE. FOUND ONEFOR HODGESHERE HIS MAJORITY 183. THOl'liH THE CAVITAL SAYS OXLY 179. The Result on (Jovonior mid On lUc :• Suffni^e Anirndnirnt May Itc Uncertain Indrflnitcly. In \low or the fact thai the voto on Kovernor is •certainly inishty close, so -Olose that ai contest is not unlikely l)y thfc defeated candidate, friends of Caviller and llodRes arc burying themselves at the county seatjs all over the state, searching for th - lone vote Which may have l>een ovei looked and *hich may pnive decisive n the final ci)unt. Whichever candidate can find ohe vote In each county tb which he ig, entitled and which he has not been ' K^ven. will add 10.% to bis majority which is same majority when it is rrcalled that Mr. Capper today is claiming the office by a majority of 2". ' ;That there arc a lot of little errors in the tigurcs seems certain. For • Ifistance the Topeka Capital. Capper's IHiper is listing Allen County as having given Hodges i majority of 179. Xfi a matter of fact the official count * ^showed the Hodges majority here to ' be 1S2. and before the returns were s6nt In. an additional vote was found . that belongs to him, making 1S3 in this county and taking four votes off • oT Cjjpper's claimed majority of 27. "Khe lone vote was found in the first , ward in Humboldt. It was listed in ftfeveral places but not carried put in the final total, the same vote is in favor of Frank Forrest for county attorney. ^ It has been said that Will White's < instructions to the voters as to bow to rote for Roosevelt ele^tois and for the Republican state ticket, caused (ieveral thousand votes to be thrown out as iBvalid. The voters did as • White Instructed them, put a cross In • &e ReWblican circle, then put cross«J« «ttcr the Roosevelt, electors.^ and : then went farther and put crosses af- ier certain naoies On the Republican lk*ct jiBdcf this cross; In the circle. Some elopUon boards rejected all sucli ttalldts. If the state vote is recounted <ind these allowed, it may make a huge "difference. j A local contest may take the South Osage vote out of the total in .Mien county due to the fact tliat the elei- iicn officials transferred the voting iilace to a sick mans bedside while • .be voted-, so it is said. In Crawford County a contesf is threatened and a -precinct casting 200 votes may be •thrown out becartsc the voting place ;was moved from where it was adver- -itised to be to a Socialist hall. So it remains to l>o seen who is to ^be next governor, and incidentally, .iwhetlier the suffrago amendment got ;.away in safety, for every contest may affect the result on all cln.-;c eleitions.

CAXTRELL LOST BY 16 VOTES. Socialists Elected Seren Officers in Crawford County. IIS Noi wnr THAT IS WHAT A. WUTER SATS OF THE BAIKAH TTAR. BOTH SIDES EpaY TIUILTY TURKEY IS PLEADING FOR lEACE . BUT THE WAR (JOES OX. Fourteen Thousand Sirk and Wounded Soldiers In Conslantiuople. —Condition PItlabic (Ry the Assnciatoil Pros**! Berlin, Nov. 14.—"Barbarism ^s fighting barlmrlsm and cemury oH hate is fighting century old oppression," declares the Balkan correspond cnt of the Vosslschc Zellung. He declares he has been reliably inf-^rmrrd that :he Bulgarians mutilated the boU ies of Turkish soldiers after the battle of Klrk-Kllisch and carried Turks heads about on their bayonet points. The > present war is more butchery than orderly warfare. 11,000 Sick and Wounded. New York. Nov. 14.—Oscar S. Strauss, former Ambassador to Turkey, received the following cablegram today from Ambassador Rockhlll, at Constantinople: "There are now over 14,000 sick and wounded soldiers hen-. Cholera seems to be increasing fast. There is much sickness and destitution among the many thousand refugees." Has Adrlanople Fallen f Belgrade. Nov. 14.—A report that the Turkish fortress Adriandple has fallen before the atlack of the'Bul garians and Servians is current hero but is without official confirmation. It was reported following the recent -.iectlon that in the Socialist laijsltde In Crawf.ird county, E. W. Cantrell, who formerly lived here and was a well known Socialist here, had been elected county attorney. The Girard Press, this week prints the affikrjal caut'aas of thu vote In Crawford county, and by these figures Cantrell lost by 16 votes, the three candidates running as follows: Keller (Rep.) 3,793; Haniey (Dem.) 2,896; Cantrell (Socialist) 3.777. The Socialists landed their candidates for county clerk, treasurer, register of deeds, probate Judge, sheriff, clerk of the district court and assessor. It Is probable that Cantrell was a comparative stranger in the county and this fact made a slight difference. The Socialists threaten to contest over the county attorneyship, basing it on alleged irregularities in one precinct, where the voting place was moved from where it was advertised a hali a mile to a Socialist hall. Two hundred votes are affected, and thrown out this may change the vols on some other county offices, the Re. publicans claim. FAIRCHILD LECTURES PLEASE. ; ' LAWRENCE WOULD CONTEST.

Professor Sawtell, of the high Hhool, is in receipt f a letter from ,-'i<he . principal of the Lawrence high ;'8ch6oI, inquiring as to the likelihood the two schools engaging in a llter- ->fy contest. Both schools have excel- ilent material, and it will take but a i small amount of "pushing" to secure a ;contest to be held some time next » -spring. For the past seven years lola. 5»hd Port Scott, high schools have tbeen holding literary contests, but as *.vFort Scott has been the loser In all / 'jihvii one case ,they have decided'to hold /;ao more contests with lola.

Dr. Fairchild outlined the qualities that go to make a true.' sportsman and iheir sports. The lecture was interesting and instructive, and as the one tonight on "Thrift" is said to be the best of the series, all adults of the city are urged to attend.

London, Nov. 14.—Official confirmation tbat Kiamil Pasha has addressed King Ferdinand of Bulgaria directly asking for an armistice pending peace negotiations was received this mom iug from Constantinople. With the TurEiah'army beaten in every battle during the month and nov/ behind fortifications at TcbataIJa defending th^ capital, the Ottoman government has appealed to Bulgaria for peace. ^Vhat Turkey proposed is not disclosed. They must, however, in the opinion of diplomats, be unllm ited if they arc to prove acceptable to Bulgrirla. Bulgaria : is unlikely- to consent to any armistice except on conditions giving her full military advantace. Turkey >vill have the sup- liort of European powers In her request for a cessation of hostilities. The armistice asked for by Turkey will affect only the fighting at Tchata Ija fortifications, while the step the European ooweis h.nve taken has the object of putting to an end the war in all parts of the Balkan peninsula Until the powers succeed in Influencing the allies in the direction of peace the fighting at Adrlanople.
