PICKETING HEAVY HANDICAP Indignation of Many at Antics of President-Baiters Finds Expression in Negative Vote Returns from Some Districts Delayed by Superior Interest in No-License So far as Western Xew York is concerned, suffrage has been beaten. The majority against it is not as big as a barn or as overwhelming as an earthquake, Uv.t 'twijl do. Reports from the county seats of Wayne and Orleans show that in both these counties the amendment was deftat-ed . by large figures. Livingston scattered reports indicate a heavy and vote, and Ontario reports a close vote and probable loss. Some of the larjj!f towns lika Corning and Hornell were repotted to huve gone quite strongly for suffrage, bin the majority of reports were the other way. The two cities mentioned were a little more than S0O in favor of suffrage, and Geneva was just about as strong against it. A strong effort was made by the suffragists in Western New York, nd at the same time the antls staged mire lively demonstrations. While the "cause" went down to defeat, so far as this section is concerned, again, it is only fair to say thnt the opposition was much lighter than two years ago. If it had not been for the unties of the "picketers" in Washington it is by no means certain that there - would have been another story, for thus aiitics are declared 4o have angered many who were at least neutral in the matter and made them bitter opponents.

REPUBLICANS WIN VICTORY ; GATHER MOST OF OFFICES WesternNewYorkOnce More True to Old Traditions. It" is very evident that the Republicans of Western New York found no reason for breaking away , from their party in the elections held yesterday. ' Not only ' did they generally hold the commanding position which had been theirs since the lairt election, but in a number of Instances they added materially to the advantage already in their possession. For Attorney-General Lewis it was a great day in this section of the state, ltarely has a candidate been tendered such an expression of confidence as came to him from the farms and villages and cities of Western New York. Even in places not always counted safely Republican, he carried the day. A very large majority of the choices for member of Assembly were Republicans. Jn some instances the vote was close, and there are some that it may require the count of the soldier vote to settle. So far as the smaller towns were concerned, the Socialist vote remained, as in former years, a negligible quantity. In some of the larger ones it showed a slight increase over other years, but nothing of consequence. Boards of supervisors in the counties of this region will all be Republican by comfortable majorities,, and some of them by a very large margin. In the case? of some of the minor town offices there was favor shown to Democrats for local, and In some cases personal reasons, but even in this case where personality played a larger part, the majority of places were won by Republicans. LIVINGSTON MUCH AGAINST SUFFRAGE Strong for All Republican ' Candidates. From the scattered aad incomplete early returns It looks as if the anti -liquor people had something of a held (Jay in Western 'New York yesterday. Several towns long in the wet colurn have already been reported on the dry side, and there are indications that there will be others when the tale is all told. On the other hand, the reiajse from dry to wet anticipated in some quarters docs not seem to have materialized. That eome dry towns have gone wet is indicated, but they are few and far between. The cider question which was precipitated into the fight almost at the last minute served to complicate matters a gotru bit, but if it had any real effect on the result, it is not apparent in the early returns. ' But there is another feature of the battle that does find a strong echo in the returns. It was said to be a part of the plan of , the pro-liquor forces to try and get that part of the question applying to drug-store licenses passed, even if the saloon and hotel sections failed. It was argued that in such a case, the town would not be 'bone-dry' and so the prohibtion against having liquor in a private home would not apply. At any rate it will be seen that a number of the towns have voted out saloons and hotels and - for drug-store licenses. There were a number ,of hot fights, but one of the hottest was that in Newark, 'Wayne county. Both sides claimed the victory to the last, and while on the first report the drys, have won on. the saloon v and hotel proposition, it is so close that the soldier vote could overthrow it. Geneseo, Nov. 6. Klectlon was quW in Livingston county to-day. The entireRe-pvrblican ticket was elected and suffrage was defeated in 33 districts out of 37 by a majority of 1,278. . . The result was as follows: SufTrage, yes 1.SS0. no 2,087; attorney -general, Lewis, Rep., 2.702, Hodson, Dem., 1,139, Block, Soc., 16; - assemblyman, Wheelock, Rep., 2.S03, Lindsley, Dem. 1,331; district-attorney. Wheeler, Rep., 2,073, Hastings. Dem., 1,322. QUIET AT MOUNT MORRIS. Town Votes Strongly Against Suf-" frag and for Republicans. Mount Morris, Nov. 6. Mount Morris esperienced the quietest election day in many years to-dny. not even the suffrage question being suSHcient to bring about anywhere near a normal . vote for an off year. In the five districts of the town there were 502 votes cast. The suffrage proposition was defeated here by an overwhelming majority. The vote in favor of the amendment being abo'ut one-ttird of that against it. ' The vote In Mount Morris was as follows: AUorney-peneral, Lewis, Rep., 2GO; Hodson, Iem 150; B.ock, Soc., 40; member of Assembly, George . F. Wheelock, Kep., ard l"ro., 313; Claude M. Undsley, Dem.. 1. - William A. Wheeler. Rep., received a majority of 120 over John W. Hastings, Dem., for district-attorney, and Frederick R. Driesbach, Rep., received a majority of 150 over John P. Brown, Dem, for coroner. Naples Ag-alnst Hotels. Naples, Nov. 6. Naples pave a majority of ." against - hotel licenses and 2t for licensing drug stores. It will be nearly morning btfore returns could be given on the suffrage question. WAYNE COUNTY IS , DWER THAN USUAL Several Towns "Out of the Wet " Suffrage Loses. Lyons, Nov. 6. The Republican town ticket was elected in ' whole here to-day with the exception of superintendent of highways and overseer of the poor which went to the Democratic candidates, both of whom were re-elected. Merton E. Lewis, for attorney -general, will have about 3,700 plurality, and suffrage will be beaten by about 2,500 in the county. Charles A. Knoble, for county clerk, gets the largest plurality ever received by a county candidate which is placed at 4.0O9. George A. Reeves, for county, treasurer, and Frank A. Gaylord, for member of Assembly, will each have about 3,500 plurality. 1 The Wayne Board of Supervisors will stand 13 Republicans and 2 Democrats which is the same as last year. Wolcott and Savannah : each elected a Democratic supervisor. Lyons goes wet by 287, hile Palmyra gets license by a small majority. Clyde goes wet and Newark goes dry With only exception of bottlers and drug stores. All towns dn the northern tier are reported as having voted dry- - PALMYRA STAYS WET. CONTINUED ON PAGE 1U. But by Narrow Margin Which Sol-. dier Vote May TJpset. Palmyra, Nov. 6. License won out by 9 votes to-day but the soldier vote may overturn the same, although, anti-license advocates have little hope that the final result will be changed in their favor. Palmyra voters were much more favorable to granting hotel and drug store licenses. Suffrage was beaten by a vote of 494 to 270. The vote on the four license questions was No; 1 For 416 against 407; No. 2 for 4S4 against 421; No. 3 for 510 against 397; No. 4 for 4G9 against 432.

T. -X t " , ' 4 S3,' ' I i. t Nora Klbtbse. meetina pabUe mt lcal atre. 0 Mrs. Gray said: "Friends can hardly credit the remarkable change Var-ne-sis has made in me. I suffered from rheumatism for five years. Tbe disease started in my hands, traveled from joint to joint until almost every joint in my body was afflicted. "My fingers were badly deformed, I was unable to close my hands and ther were almost useless. My feet were very-sore, so much so that I had to pad them with cotton. I would not give op in spite of the extreme pain and in consequence for months I , had to literally crawl about the house. "For months I was helpless and had to be assisted from the bed to the chair, it was nece?sary for me to have an attendant all the time. I don't believe anyone can realize what it is to suffer from rheumatism unless they have had the disease., "Hearing about the wonderiui results Var-ne-sis was accomplishing I decided tr. r-ivA this msdieine a trial. I can't say that 1 saw any improvement at first, but by persisting in the treatment I am voxr free, from pain and able to do my own housework. I cannot speak too higLIy about Var-ne-sis and hope that some other sufferer will be helped to health through my letter." .
