Tbo commls sioners will likely finish the work today, but It will be late. It was thought yesterday that they would get through today noon, but the count bad dragged along more slowly than was er pectcd. Both Republic's and Dem ocrats are staying with the commissioners, watching their progress. Mucli interest. was aroused today when it was learned that the board has laid aside the returns from North and South Elsmore and North Geneva to be taken up after the rest of the eicclioa results gone over. It seems that Iu the above named precincts the election officials Instead of sealing up the certificates of the election in the .separate envelopes provided for them, to be directed to the county chairman of the parties and the county clerk, sealed them up with the returns. This was not noticed until the returns were brought to the county clerks office where they were oiicned by the officials of Micse precincts iu (he presence lif the county clerk. It seems that the commissioners want to consider this I matter before canvassing the vote iu I those places. ! Tiiosc wlio are interested in the ad option of the Barnes high school law have been watchhig tiic vote on the measure closely. The country precincts voted against it. but the indl cations are now that the cities will pile up a sufficient vote for the proposition to overcome the vote in the country. Not including North Geneva, North and South Eismorc, the country precincts gave a total vot^ of 603 against the law. But Humboldt gave it 155 majority, LaHarpe 08 and Gas City 08. It is expected that lola will give it a majority of COO. Hence to beat the proposition the three pre- cnicts which have not been canvassed would have to give a majority of over 288 against the proposition to beat it. It is thoguht that both conslitutiop- al amendments have lost. Frank Travis received word this morning from Woodson county that the full vote was now In there and that he had carried the county by 142 votes. Judge Foust carried that county, it is said, by a little larger majority than this. FIRE IN AN OFFICE.

RELIEF FOR POOR Captain Harry Butler of Salvation Army, Planning Work for the Winter. Topcka, Nov. 7.—Returns are still dribbling in at Republican headquar* ters and the longer they come the larger the pluralities for Taft, Stnbbe and the entire state ticket appear to be. /There are 2,225 precincts In the state and 842 of them had been heard from last night These precincts are scattered from one end of the state to the other and are considered a safe basis for a percentage estimate of the Captain Harry Butler, of tlie Salva- 1 entire vote. The returns received up to last uight indicated that Taft's plurality in the state might reach 40.000 and that Stubbs'e plurality might go to 36,000. Attorney General Jackson is leading the state ticket up to the present time. His plurality at the present time la 17,000 and this comes from a littl^ over one-third jit the precincts. • It looks as If 'bis total plurality when all tlon Army is planning an extensive relief work among the worthy poor of lola this winter.
