Gov Bradley Will Declare Martial Law in the State THE RUMOR NOT GENERALLY BELIEVED The Determination of the Election De pends Upon the Contests Which Have Been Raised A Mob Gathers at Vanceburg and Threat ened the Commissioners for Throwing Out Two Precincts of Lewis Coun ty The Action Reconsidered FRANKFORT Ky Nov 14Senator Goebel and the democratic leaders are still waiting on the final action of the counting boards of election in Jeffer son Christian Knox Johnson and other counties It is claimed that enough fraudulent votes will be thrown out in these counties to give Goebel a majority on the face of the returns The city was excited Mon day night over a rumor that the gov ernor intends to declare martial law in the event that Knox and Johnson counties are thrown out and that he willrefuse to recognize Goebel as gov ernor under such conditions This ru mor of martial law is not generally credited though there is almost cer tain to be a serious clash between Gov Bradley and the claimant VAKCEBUKQ Nov 14Monday was an exciting day in this place the coun ty seat of Lewis county An effort was made to throw out the entire vote of the county which gave Taylor a plu rality of 600 on a technicality it be ing claimed that the paper on which the ballots were printed was too thin On this ground the election board last week threw out the vote of Mowers and Burtonville precincts which gave Taylor 209 plurality and adjourned unto Monday Word was passed through the county and Monday about 2000 fVanccburgandgathered the election board inet at 10 am News reached fhe crowd that the commissioners were about to throw out the vote of another precinct and there was an angry demonstration Trouble seemed imminent when it was announced that the election board had reconsidered its action by which the vote of certain precincts had been thrown out and the entire vote of the county would be counted as cast An impromptu reception was at once ar ranged by the crowd LOUISVILLE Ky Nov HThe tan gle growing out of last weeks election grows worse with each day Monday was the third day of the official count but the work of the county boards of canvassers disclosed little informa tion to clear the situation Chairman Long of the republican campaign com mittee Monday repeated his claim of a plurality of 3111 for Taylor based on official returns from 110 counties and unofficial returns from the remaining nine The democratic papers and lead ers here have ceased to give figures but specials from Frankfort quote Candidate Goebel and other party leaders as saying they are confident of the sue cess of the Kenton county man The complexion of the returns to be presented to the state board of elec tion commissioners when it meets in Frankfort next month still depends upon the determination of the con tests which are being raised in several parts of the state notably the strong ly republican counties of the of the Eleventh district where the democrats claim tissue ballots were used These contests have aroused much feeling in the localities affected One of them involves the vote of Knox county which gave Taylor 1398 plurality Monday Barbourville the county seat was visited by hundreds of people interested in the result their avowed purpose being to see that justice is done Counsel for Candidate Taylor began action in the Knox county cir s cuit court to compel the county elec tion officers to certify the vote to the state board of election commissioners The contention is over 42 ballots from the first precinct but the peti lion filed by Taylors counsel asserts that the election boards purpose is to throw out the entire county Judge Brown granted a temporary injunction against such action Johnson and Lewis counties are affected by the democratic charges of irregularities and there too legal complications are likely to arise AHopkinsville a contest over a precinct which gave Taylor a plurality of 95 is delaying the official return of the vote of Christian county which 750tthecount fvpfLouisville and Jefferson county Mon 0E day the commissioners being at work on the Third ward when they adjourned until Tuesday Both sides are fighting every inch of the ground A num ber of precincts are in controversy on the grounds of alleged irregulari ties In one such case the seventh pre cinct of the First ward the antiGoe bel people Monday secured an order from Judge Ton ey to compel the pre cinct officers to sign the tally sheets The Goebel people however claim the ballot box had been opened before it reached the county election officers The vote so far as canvassed shows little change from the official figures THE VOTE IN OHIO Unofficial Returns Received From All Counties in the State Gives Nash for Governor a Plurality of 50512 COLUMBUS 0 Nov 10The first ab stract of votes by counties received at the secretary of states office Thurs day indicate that A W Patrick dem may have been elected lieutenant gov ernor The

headquarters have been busy all day Wednesday and Wednesday night endeavoring to se cure some accurate figure oh the plurality of Judge Nash the republican candidate for governor and Wednesday night an unofficial table of pluralities by counties was completed This shows that in 57 counties Nash rep has 84399 over McLean dem and ini 31 counties McLean has 34035 over Nash This gives Nash over McLean in the state 49502 It is not believed the official returns will make any im portant change in these figures The republican figures on the legislature are Houserepublicans 62 democrats 44
