' The Republicans maintained their majorities 'in both the state senate and the assembly In New Jersey yesterday. By OWEN L. SCOTT, Stuff Correspondent. (Copyright. 1929, by Consolidated Press Association.) CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—Chicago voters on Tuesday .showed that they still are in a doubting mood, by refusing to authorize large bond issues and by turning a cold shoulder to the group of political leaders who formerly backed the William Hale Thompson faction within the Republican party. At the same time they strengthened •the hand of United States Senator Charles S.. Deneen within the Important Cook county stronghold, and put Anton Cermak, Democratic leader, well on the way to assumption of tha role of Democratic boss"—the job left vacant by the death of George Brennan. For two years the revolting Chicago voters have been turning down bond issue proposals with regularity. After electing William Hale Thompson mayor they almost immediately shut off his chance to become known by his self-imposed title of "Big Bill the Builder" through .the simple process of refusing to vote him money to spend. Roml Issues Defeated. The same wariness was displayed Tuesday when approximately $45,000,006 in bond issues were overwhelmingly defeated. One project, that authorizing $3,000,000 in bonds to continue construction of driveways on land created ' through filling in the lake, was favored. This money, however, Is to be spent by the Lincoln park board and not by the city administration. Grade separation proposals and a ?22,000,000 super-highway project, were defeated. In judicial races, all sitting jurists were returned to office. The coalition of Democrats and Republicans under the Democratic banner and backed by Senator Deneen, was completely successful. It made a clean sweep of twenty-two offices. Trailing it were the Republican candidates and a poor third was run by the group which recently had supported the Thompson- Len Small-Col. Frank Smith faction of the Republican party. Coalition In Beaten. RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 6.—The Democratic party has administered a severe defeat to a coalition ticket by electing Dr. John Garland Pollard governor by a majority that may reach 60,000. Late last night Dr. William Mosely Brown, the coalition candidate, conceded the election of .his rival and w|red congratulations to Pollard. Dr. Pollard polled 146,936 votes in 1,523 precincts out of 1,683 in the state, against 85,130 votes for Dr. Brown In the same area. Only 160 precincts were missing. ' The gubernatorial race between, inn college professors brought out some surprising results to political workers. Brown .regarded as a Cannon candidate, was unable to carry Blackstone, the bishop's home precinct, which gavo Pollard 470 votes and Brown, 63. Brown, regarded as a Cannon candl- his own home. Carries Four Counties. Early today it was apparent that Brown had carried only four counties out of the 100 in the state. It was estimated that Pollard won each of the ten congressional districts by majorities ranging from 3,000 to 18,000. Richmond went for Pollard by about 6,000 votes, and Norfolk was carried by the Democrats by ab,out 4,500. Lynchburg, home of Senatpr Cartel- Glass, which waa regarded as a sure Brown district, waa won by Pollard by 1,500. After conceding the election Brown announced he would return to Lexington and resume his duties aa head of the department of psychology at Washington and Lee university. Pollard resigned as professor of government at William and Mary college to run for governor. Last night Tb.e Richmond Times- Dlspatch issued this statement: • "Suflicient returns have been received to make it certain that the en-. tire Democratic ticket has been swept into olllce. Pollard's majority over Brown is already 36,000 and may reach 60,000. Available returns indicate every congressional district Is in the Democratic column in the vote for governor." All-Ucmocrutic Victory. BOSTON, Nov. 6.—James M. Curley has been elected to a third term as mayor of Boston by winning in an all- Demoeratiu election. Complete returns gave these results: Curley, 117,512. Frederick Mansfield. 9,132. . Daniel H. Coakley, 2,77*. The campaign waa almost devoid of Issues. M. T. BERKINGEIt ' County Controller ROBERT A.

WRIGHT. (Spnelal Cabin to Altoona Mirror and Chicago Dally NCWB.) HARBIN, Manchuria, Nov. 6.— Foreign consuls In Harbin are seriously considering the best means of protecting their nationals in the event of peril. First consideration will bo given women and children. The question Is raised 'whether railway facilities are sufficient if need for them becomes acute. It is obvious that if anything like u heavy exodus develops, all trains will bo crowded with fleeing Russians and Chinese—even the special trains for foreigners—and therefore- tho consular body is debating a proposal to usa motor cars. Tlie only avenue of exit lies through Changchun, where the Japanese have abundant troops. It is 150 miles from Harbin to Changchun and a Journey of that distance by automobiles over bad roads is practically Impossible, but when the Sunguri river is frozen over presently a smooth road will bo provided. . • 'It is estimated that''* 01 ' Harbin's 3,500 foreign women and children, 700 motor cars would be noofld. Of those motor cars would bo needed. Of these would bo the most numerous. There are 3,000 Poles here, including 700 women and children, arid about 200 Germans, including a hundred women and children.,' There are thirty American women and children. Immediate Interest centers in the celebration tonight and Thursday of tho great soviet anniversary, when the Reds threaten to (>arade through Harbin. Many Harbtntrs are wondering whether the Rods will "start something" tonight. The Chinese, authorities have been busy arresting local communists engaged In Propaganda work among thiV Chinese workers, attempting to stir them up for • demonsratlon tonight.

By ABCH ROGERS, Staff Correspondent. GODSTONE, SURREY, England, Nov. 6—A trl-motored Lufthansa passenger plane, with eight person* aboard, including Prince Eugene Von Schaumburg-Lippe, crashed into It woods at Harden Park near here today. ' S,lx bodies were recovered from the wreckage, which caught fire when It crashed. One passenger and one member of the crew escaped alive, but with injuries. The plane was demolished. The two who escaped were Prince Eugene, who was second pilot of the plane, and Lieutenant Commander B. U. Glen-Kidston, retired British naval officer, a passenger. The prince was seriously injured. Glen-Kidston was cut and bruised but was able to depart for London. , Had Bad Weather. ' The plane, which was en route from Croydon airdrome to Amsterdam and Berlin, ran into bad weather shortly after starting i'.a trip. Visibility waa poor and the pilot apparently attempted to return to Croydon. , Flying over a heavily wooded region, tho pilot lost his bearings in the thick fog and the plane crashed into a clump bf trees on a high hill. Tho sound of the crash was heard a mile away: The piano burst into flames as it struck the trees. Police had considerable difficulty in locating the wreckage due to the fog.' A young woman who was nearby at the time of the crash saved the life of the German prince. She was Mrs. H. R. Meredith, who ran to the scene of the wreck and pulled Prince Eugene from the edge of the burning craft. Victims Am Burned. The bodies of the victims were burned. The dead: D. L. Jones, H. S. Gasper, G. Milne, all English passengers; First Pilot Rodchinke, Wireless Operator Nlklan and Mechanic Ullrich. / . , Besides the narrow escape of the scion of the ancient German house of Sclmumburg-Llppe, the accident furnished another chapter in the charmed life o£ Glen-Kidston. The former naval officer's good fortune has carried him through many adventures in the air, under the sea and In motor racing. He served on submarines before -hia retirement and took up _ aviation this year. With a sportsman friend he purchased the giant passenger airplane from which Alfred Loewenstein, Belgian financier, fell to his death inline English channel last year. Glen-Kidston hired Loewenstein's former pilot to take him and his companion on a big game hunting expedition in Kenya colony, Africa. The plan's crashed near Vairobl and they narrowly escaped death. Is DiHlunt Relative. Prince Eugene, who is a distant relative of the wife -of the former German, kaiser, Princess Hermine, recent~.y had taken up commercial aviation. Dr. D. L. Greig, who attended the prince, told the United Press that'vie was "very badly injured" and was still unconscious in Grelg's surgery. Mrs Meredith, whose quick action and nerve made her the heroine of the accident, was happy but not particularly thrilled at having saved the life of the German prince. "I was glad I saved him," she said quietly. She was perfectly calm and the experience apparently had not unnerved her. OVERCOATS FOR MEN' AND BOYS.
