Sheldon-Williams and E. R. Franklin, won first and second place respectively- The error was simple. In 1 carrying over 1,000 from subtotals, it was counted twice. Discovery of the error caused a flutter among the returning officer's staff and all figures of the vote in the collegiate contest were again checked to Insure accuracy.

George Beach, returning officer, communicated with Mr. McGillivray after the final check was made to inform him of the error. Arrangements were also made for Mr. McGillivray to visit the returning officer during the day and examine the records for himself. The error has no legal effect upon the election.

Mr. Beach has Issued a new declaration showing election of Mr. Child instead of Mr. McGillivray. The first official declaration Premier Patterson was out of the city and could not be reached to give any official Information concerning the government's plans.

(By Associated Press) SHANGHAI, Nov. 24. Japanese planes bombarded Canton, China's southern metropolis, for more than an hour today, and reports reached Hongkong 100 civilians were killed. Planes dropped projectiles, apparently aiming at railways and stations. They also struck at suburban Honam, across the Pearl river, where a number of Cantonese civilian and military leaders make their homes.

Two Japanese bombing planes protected by pursuit craft dropped a score of projectiles along the main thoroughfares of Nanking, killing 40 civilians.

Alex Black- But British Opinion Split To Point Where Rancor Shown BY GRANT DEXTER (Leader-Post London Bureau) LONDON, 24. The unofficial conversations between Adolph Hitler, chancellor of Germany, and Viacount Halifax, lord president of the council, has brought the British government to the crossroads of Its foreign policy.

The visit of Premier Chautemps of France to London next weekend is a plain indication of the importance attaching the decisions which must be made, and upon which European political developments of the immediate future unquestionably turn. The situation has been sufficiently disclosed to make It plain that Hitler's proposals are acutely controversial not only among the British public but in parliament and in the Chamberlain government itself. Likewise, the future relations between the British and French governments are involved. Northsidc wood, deputy attorney-general, i Saskatchewan's representative at Fire caused $700 damage to While pursuit planes engaged Chinese craft in a dogfight, the bombers passed through antiaircraft fire to attack the Chinese emergency airfield between Nanking and Wunu, a short distance up the Yangtze. The bombardment came as foreign sources confirmed reports long-awaited manufactured planes arrived at the capital to bolster the Chinese air force.

The Japanese raid was believed to have been an attempt to smash the new craft quickly. The 62 foreigners remaining in Nanking asked the Japanese to make their quarter a neutral zone to prevent possible destruction by bombs or shells. Japanese authorities said they favored the proposal in principle, but added there were military considerations which the army had to take into account. Reports Conflict The two warring factions la-sued conflicting communiques on the fighting along the Wuslh-Kiangyin line, some 100 miles east of Nanking. Japanese claimed steady progress, but Chinese said they were repulsing attacks, south of Lake Tal and preventing attempts to land behind Chinese northside house at noon Wednesday while a family sat and chatted at a mid-day meal.

Testimony of Lawrence "Scotty i McCann, who told of breaking open a tin cash box and receiving about $2,000 of Its contents featured the preliminary trial of William Tokaryk, lyear-old Moose Jaw youth charged with stealing $7,000 from Richard' Harwood of the Harwood hotel. the conference.

It is probable thatV out of this conference, will come a recommendation for the enactment of a bill In each of the provincial legislatures. This bill will likely be before the Saskatchewan house this session. i At the present time, government ofictals are working on a crop insurance bill which may be brought In this session.

Final check also revealed small errors in poll totals reached from the sub-poll figures. Result Is that Mr. Child has been elected with a majority of 971 over Mr. McGillivray, his total vote being 6,326 to Mr. McGillivray's Makes History This is the first time In the history of a civic election In Regina that such an error has occurred.

It Is also the first time that a second declaration has had to be Issued in connection with elections to a school board. Provisions of the City act, re- specting elections, protect the returning officer in ease of any error. They provide no election shall be declared Invalid by reason, among other things, of "any mistake" in the official forms or other irregularity unless it can be shown the elee-tion was not in accordance with the act. Mr. Beach, in a brief state- ment Wednesday, said the error was a very human one and an examination of the various sheets upon which the huge vote was tabulated would Indicate possibility of an error occuring.

Aldermanic Vote A northslde voter called attention to another angle of the official returns. Since every accepted aldermanic ballot was to be marked for 10 candidates, this voter held that the total for each poll should end in votes would be In multiples of 10.

Face-Savbig Actioa There was a growing belief Chinese might fight only as face-saving, instituting rearguard actions without making a stand at Nanking.
