PALL RIVER, Mass.,.Dec. SO.—The labor unions Involved since last July In a strike against a 12Vi per cent, re duction in wages in the cotton mills of the city, today, by a vote of approxi mately three to one, approved a con tinuance of the contest. The vote of the unions was 1,401 for ivgM against continuing the strike. T/, The call for meetings of theMmions to vote on a continuance of the contest was prompted by agitation of the ques tion whether the employes should re turn to work for the winter under the reduction and renew the strike later if wages were not advanced. It was also stated in mill circles that the majority of the union men were ready to return to work but that the leaders were keeping them frcun do ing so. Accordingly It was decided to submit the question to a vote today, with the result that in a total of 1.821 ballots cast there wns a majority of 971 in favor of continuing. This wns the first formal vote taken on the ques tion since the action of the unions In July inaugurating the strike. The re suit of today’s vote is a general disap pointment to business men. who had hoped for an ending of the trouble. There is still some question ns to whnt extent It will be considered bind ing by the great body of non-union help. There is believed to be some possibility that the unorganized ope ratives may gradually go back and thus slowly end the strike. S. E. A. ELECTS ITS OFFICERS .T. II.

Final Bulletin on Amount up to De comber 13 8hows 11,971,477. WASHINGTON. Dec. 30.—The final bulletin of the census bureau on cotton ginned In the United States up to De cember 13. places the number of bales at 11.971.477. counting round bales as half bales. The items are: 11,747,403 square; 276.692 round and 85,728 Island. The total number of nil kinds of bales reported was 12,109.823. The totals reported for the previous states EVERY BALLOT BOX IN DENVER TO BE OPENED weeping Investigation of Alleged Frauds Ordered by the Supremo Court of Colorado. DENVER, Col., Dec. 30.—Stretching its hand so as to .cast a shadow over every* man and woman in any way im plicated .In .election fraunds of the city and county of Denver on or before or after Nov. 3, the supreme court today ordered an* investigation so sweeping in its scope that every phase of the election may bo scrutinized and every thing that bears in apy way upon It may be made known by judicial In quiry. Alva Adams, Democratic candidate for governor, who appeared from the returijs (o be. elected,'.btlt who declared that he does not want the office taint ed with -fraud, asked the court to open every Denevr ballot box, but the order of the court goes beyond the mero examination of the ballots and pro vides.for an Investigation of. the reg istration lists, tho campaign expendi tures and, in brief, all election mat ters. Attorney Samuel W. Bedford for Adams and Attorney Henry J. Hersey for tho Republicans, asked the court to make its order of such hreddth that the court need not stop at nnything in the investigation. The court said that what it meant to do and Instruct cd the lawyers to agree upon the wording of the order and present It to the court for npproval next Tuesday. As there are two hundred and four ballot boxes, it is evident that several months will be consumed In the ex amination by the two handwriting ex pert* who have been appointed for this work. It Is expected Jhat the court will be asked to moke an order placing special workers nt tho court house to guard the registration books until such time as the investigation is made. F. A. Williams, chairman of the Re publican committee, has published the following statement over his signa ture: “Our investigation Into the conduct of the recent election in Denver has developed the fact that approximately 20.000 fraudulent votes were cast or counted for Alva Adams In this city. There is now no reasonable doubt that Governor Peabody and the entlro Republican state ticket was fairly elected on November 8 by the votes of a large majority of the legal vdters of this state.” Republicans, ns well as Democrats, admit that the opening of all the Den ver boxes complicates the political sit uatlon in Colorado, but believe that it means there will be no serious trouble as predicted. It was announced late today that the Republican plan to unseat Dem ocratlc senators had been modified and that possibly only Senators Borne and Healy, who were seated by Democratic majority on contests two years ago, would be turned out. It also was reported that on the advice of influential Republicans the proposition to memorialize the United States' senate to unseat Senator Tell er would be abandoned.

Governor Aycock spoke for over hour and thirty minutes nnd held his hearers ns Jacksonville audiences are seldom held. He has a way of ex pressing himself and impressing his thoughts upon his hearers which Is distinctively his own. and no one can move his hearers with him In his va rious and often thonging moods with greater effect. After quoting from a tribute paid the people of the South by the late Henntor Hoar In an address delivered nt Charleston a few years ago in which he predicted that u great and magnifi cent future for the country was to be based in large part on the strength and beauty of the South, Governor Aycock said; Tho 8outh’s Part, “The question now arises among us, however, ns to whether, despite this prediction, we have any large part in the life of this nation and if not, how can we secure and make good our proper share In the affairs of the coun try?” It seemed said Governor Aycock, that today “we have less cfTect upon the thought nnd action of the nation than nt any period of our history.” Before the civil war. he added. Southern statesmen directed the policies of the nation and filled the largest place in the eye of the people. They wrote few books but their speeches illuminated every subject which they touched and set the fashion of political thought, but “In this day It is not too much to say that what any Southern man thfnka of political.questions or govern mental duty carries final settlement.” . The only remedy for the South’s loss of power in the nation, he declared, was unlversal'ed- ucation. The people of the South must build their own foundation of charac ter, temperament and inherited traits. Continuing, he said: “We must not repud Lite, but devel op: we must seek out and appreciate our own distinctive tmlt* our own tra ditions, our deep rooted tendencies and read our destiny in their interpreta tion. We must put av. t y vain-glory and,boosting and take an impartial in ventory' of nil the thing* we have and are; end these things ran come to us only through the training of all our citizenship.” Work of the Schools.

No Method of Communication With Outside World—Fuel Almost Unob tainable, and Soldiers Cannot Keep Their Bodies Warm—Impregnable Dofonses Now a Myth. TOKIO, Dec. 30.—(Evening.)—The navy department published tonight a letter written by a man on tho battle ship Sevastopol, which had fallen Into the hands of the Japanese. Following is tho text of tho letter: “The fortress cannot resist after De cember. The progress of the enemy is reducing our principal line .of outer defenses Is not fully known, but it Is Irresistible. We are sadly disappointed over the non-nrrivnl of the second Pacific squadron, and, are dally nearing our miserable end. Gen. Stocssel's so-called Impregnn ble line of outer defences Is now i myth.

A test case has been made, the complainants preferring fish for shipment to the Southern Express Company, ond upon the refusal of the latter to handle the same, action was brought, with the result mentioned.

In a, blue service uniform, seemed embarrassed at the noisy ovation. Rear Admiral Shimamura, chief of staff, laughingly elbowed forward Vice Ad miral Kamimurn. The junior officers tried to dear the woy. but the crowd closed In on Admiral Togo and they were frequently forced to push the crowd backward in on endeavor to dear the reaching hands. Finally Admiral Togo and Vice Ad miral Kamtrnun were freed from their enthusiastic admirers and surrounded by officers they reached the carriage sent by the emperor to the' station to convey th4 distinguished party to the palace. As Admiral Togo appeared a great shout arose, hats were thrown In Ihe air, srms were raised and “Banzai” followed "Banzai.” Admiral Togo and Vice Admiral Kamlmura will probably remain In To- kio about one week for the purpose of consulting with the general stuff and perfecting plans for future operations.
