ATLANTA. Ga., Oct. 8.—Joseph M.
Brown, of Marietta, was elected governor
of Georgia yesterday by a majority of
more than 100,000 over hit —
Yancy Carter, an independent.
J00,000 over hit opponent,
. ir, an independent.
The election ended one of the moat
remarkable campaigns In the political his-
torlal nomination of his party there
many who thought he had no -
winning it. Against him was
man who had onlv two y*u._
tvon the nomination for governor by
unprecedented majority, and who had
every reason to think that he would
again sweep the state.
He won In the primary by a majority
of 10,000. and. that too, without mak
ing a speech or visiting the different parts
of the state. He simply remained In his
campaign headquarters and directed it.
The people did the rest.
Complete though unofficial returns
show 74.075 votes majority fronj 102
Returns from eighty-seven coun
ties give the disfranchisement amend
ment a majority of 34.319, and If this
ratio holds up the total majority will
run higher than 50,000 votes.
Brown carrrled every countv In the
state save two—Chattooga and Gor
don. Ho carried Carter's home coun
ty of Hart, and received a majority
In Carter's own precinct.
Brown’s majority Is the largest ever
received by a candidate for governor
of Georgia In a regular election. It
Is nearly double the total vote polled
by Governor Terrell, in 1904, when he
had no opposition.
Interest in the election really cen
tered about the disfranchisement
amendment, and the negroca In the
south Georgia counties cut the ma
jority down considerably. The amend
ment received Its largest vote In the
north Georgia counties.
The estimate of Carter’s total vote
hinges upon the presumption that

IS VERY MUCH ALIVE
SAVANNAH, Ga., Oct. 8.—A very
unusual experience wag that of Mr.
G. 8. Godbold, chief special agent for
the Atlantic Coast Line, when old ac
quaintances meeting him on One street
yesterday first stared at him, then
seemed startled and frightened, and
finally ran forward to shake his
hand. He could not understand
whether a new hat he was wearing
svas responsible for tho sudden ex
hibition of friendship or whether he
bad been asleep, like Rip Van Win
kle, for a number of years without
knowing it and had just awakened.
For a long time this was kept up
until soma ono finally enlightened him
by telling him that scores of his
friends in Savannah on Monday
learned that In u desperate fight with
train robbers he had yield'd up his
life, not, however, before h« Oiad ob
tained two comrades on his trip to tho
happy hunting grounds. Mr. God-
bold denies that he Is non est. He as
serts, liko Mark. Twain, that the re
port of his death Is greatly exagger
ated, and that it Is really he and not
his ghost that la greeting friends.
NOT EXPECTEOJO RECOVER
SAVANNAH, Ga.. Oct. 8.—Advices
received by the Atlantic Coaat Line
officials here today indicated that
Allen O’Neal, the agent at Jfahunta,
who was shot by unknown parties
c.-.rough the window bf the utatlon on
Tuesday night or early yesterday
morning, was still alive but the physi
cians do not give the greatest encour
agement that he will get well. The
special agent of the Coast Line and
the county authorities In Wayne
county are still on ttje hunt for the
men who committed the deed.

KANSAS CITY. Mo.. Oct. 8—Frank
B. MonnetL ex-attorney general of
Ohio, while in this city replied to the
statement of the Standard Oil Com
pany's attorney, recently made public
After reading the statement Mr.
"What a pack of mallolous lies.”
He then dictated a statement In
which he took up in detail and dcnle-I
S. H. Tolies’ statements as to the

"This same 8. H. Tolies, who gives
out this Interview, In company with
Larry Neal, both attorneys of record
for the Standard Oil Company, were
the attorneys 1 referred to In my in
terviews as asking tho court to have
me stop taking the deposllons before
E. B. Dillon of Columbus, Ohio.
"No one ever said that the Standard
OH Company called a meeting of the
board of directors and passed resolu
tions ordering 1500,000, or any other
sum, to be Invested In the attorney
general of Ohio. If all that C. ! B.
Squires said was true. I did not expert
to establish by testimony that the
board of directors officially acted and
ordered anybody to be bribed, but l
did Intend to show whethor Squires
had received a telegram from Abwer
McKinley, or whether Charles N. Has
kell or Rockefeller had been at any
time at Squires’ house, -or whether
Squires had been In town with them,
or whether Haskell or McKinley had
offices In New York, at No. 42 Broad
street, at that time. I did Intenl to
find out. If possible, how Squires l.now
Senator Foraker had had a conference
with me at Washington on tho Stan
dard OH case,, and how fie knew a
settlement was contemplated by the
Standard Oil Company through Fora
ker. If he was dreaming all of this
It was a happy coincidence, and one
worthy careful Investigation from a
"Mr. Tolies forgets to quote, all of
Squire's interview In the New York
World, whero he says he knew all of
these parties for many years prior to
the statement wherein Squires cor
roborated my original charge that he
was to have immunity if he gnve up
the real parties. And he forgets that
Squires claimed he was being backed
in his Manhattan Fire Insurance Com
pany case by the Standard OH people,
and forgets Squires remained out of
Ohio, as far as I have been able to
ascertain, and has remained In Naw
York ever since the attempt at brlb

NEW YORK, Oct. 8.—"Chicago

a phrase told at the end of the most
decisive ball gamo played In this coun
try In many years; played at the Polo
R rounds In this city today to decide tho
attonal League championship for tho
season of 1908. In the presence of a
record-breaking crowd which swnniped
the grounds and left many thousands
outside long before the game began, a
game wna played in deadly earnest to
settle as tensely dramatic a situation
an the most ardent lpver of sport could

The game was played In the-‘cheerful
sunshine 0 f an Ideal baseball day be
fore a vast concourse of people who
carried with them to the Polo grounds
tho pent-up enthusiasm, hopes and
fears accumulated day by duy. In the
closing weeks of a season’s light for
a national league pennant which had
been absolutely unprecedented for con
stantly Intensifying Interest and un
certainty. At dusk the groat multitude
departed the historic enclosure—hushed
and disappointed. Th« pennant does
not wave above the akycrapera flight.
Its winners, who arrived hero on the
Twentieth Century Limited this morn
ing. are now on their way westward.
Tho large black headlines In the news-
K pers—"New York 2, Chicago 4"—are
e mourning captions over the story
of some great personage’s death. And
yet probably Manager McCraw's words
after the game. In the unwonted quiet
of the tralnng quarters where the
Giants were having their lAst showers
and rub-downs, epitomises the feelings
of tho vast army of Now York’a fol
lowers, from those of the merest office
hoy to tho occupant of a grandstand
box: ”1 do not feel badly nboqt the
gamo; We merely lost something wo
had won before.” Fair, or not, this
appears to In* tho view generally ob
taining In Greater New York.
It was great baseball, witnessed by
the greatest*"of great baseball crowds^*
which would have been more than
doubled If the fences had been stretch

vainly for admittance. Spectators who

made today's game compulsory, seem
Giants Were Outplayed.
The Giants, well though they played,
were outplayed. Chicago, fresh from
rest, was superb In form. Brilliant,
errorless fielding, snappy base running
end opportune hitting iu the third In
ning, which made effective In scores a
double by Chance, won the game. New
York could not hit at critical times.
Mathcwson. the great "Matty,’’ favor
ite of the favorites, could not keep his
Invincible arm power and the effect
of a moment's lapse In that third In
ning could not bo overcome.
The gathering of the vast crowd
which witnessed tho contest was pic
turesque In tho extreme. At dayhresk
the enthusiasts had begun to assem
ble—and plnces In line were held by
dozens of the great unknown who had
traveled from some midnight bread
line to get a place an eager "fan" would
pay well for later In the day.
Immediately tho gates swung open,
hundreds- fairly hurled themselves
within the enclosure, lly noon the sale
of tickets ended and soon thoro was
not a seat—hardly standing room. And
out beyond the enclosure every over
topping structure—chimneys, derricks,
roofs—hod their precariously hung
swarm of "motor*." Outside tho
grounds for an hour preceding the call
ing of tho game at 2:45 o'clock there
was an almost uncontrollable crush of
thousands, desperately anxious to get
Inside. Suddenly tho corner gates to
the diamond were flung wide and hun
dreds rushed mndly to the sides of tho
field, fighting for places.
The police fought the crowd back
and Anally a sufficient margin of field
was maintained around the diamond.
