THE state election occurred in

tor in November. Two years ago the
RtHte went Demooratio for Governor by
71,000 majority for A. J. Nortben over

election has been closely contested for
the last two months, and the indica

unusually full vote, larger than two
There are 137 counties in Georgia,

there seems to be no doubt that Atkin

legislature, but not enough to in any

either the senate or tbe house.
Later reports from all over Georgia
sbow that the Populists have made

state, and that tbe Democratic major

members of the house elected, about
sixty are Populists, and of the forty

LbNDON. Oct. 4
THE British Cabinet council met
today, in obedlenoe to Tuesday's
summons. Most of the minis
ters were present. Sir Willintn
Harcourt, chancellor of tbe exchequer,
was absent. lne meeting lasted trom
noon until 1.30 p. m.
It was announced afterward, upon
authority, that tbe council, after dis
dnssing tbe state of affairs In China,
decided to send troops to that country,
in order to protect British interests. ,
It is probable tbat additional ships
will be sent to strengthen the fleet in
Chinese waters under tbe command of
Admiral Freemantle. It is also said
tbat in consequence of today's meeting
tbe British legation at Pekin will soon
be guarded by British blue jackets and
native Indian soldiers.
Shanghai, Oct. 4. The married offi
cials of tbe customs department of
Pekin are leaving tbat city with their
families, owing to the unsettled state
of affairs and the recent assault made
upon foreigners. The general anti
foreign feeling, whioh causes much un
easiness, continues at New-Cbwang

London. Oct. 4. A dispatch from
Hankow snys as a consequence of tbe
nrgenc demands of the Imperial au
thorities the province has been denuded
of troops. Turbulent mobs have
demonstrated at several poiuts tbat
tbe authorities are powerless to check
tbem. Europeans are alarmed, and
the British consul has advised tbat
all women and children be sent
to Shanghai, which is considered tbe
safest place. This will be done as soon
as possible. I be men, with tbe traders
and officials, have formed a- volunteer
corps to proteot themselves. The Vice
roy fears tbat tbe mons will break out
in armed rebellion. He is having forti
fications thrown up at Woo-Cbang, on
tbe other side of the river, to be ready
in case an attack on the city Is at
tempted. CHINESE ABANDON KOREA.
The Times in an article on the war
in tbe east says tbat the Japanese pos
sess splendid marching powers. The
slowness oi their advance illustrates
the difficulties of the routs they are
following. At tbe present rate, if all
opposition vanishes, Moukden cannot
be reached betore October i'i at tbe
earliest. No Japanese naval movement
to tbe mouth of tbe Yalu River, where
a fljet might be required to
protect the Japanese troops cross
ing the estuary, has yet been
reported. It is thus elesr that tbe Chi
nese have completely abandoned Korea.
The Japanese advance into Manchuria
has not yet commenced. If, as stated,
troops have been landed on tbe north
east coast, they are probably intended
for police purposes to assist in the reor
ganization of Korea. No opposition on
tbe route to Aioakden is likely, but if
assured of provisions and ammunition
the Chinese might be expected to de
velop behind the walled defenses of
Moukden the lighting power with which
they have been credited. -Sbiuan-
Kiang, where tbe Japanese fleet has
been sighted, is an important strategic
point, and will be the most probable
place of disembarkation if an imme
diate dash on Pekin is intended. A
land to tbe south of the Pel-Ho river
would involve many difficulties on ac
count of tlio number of rivers that
wonld l:avo to bo crossed. On the other
hand, from Sbiuan-Kiang a good route
Li Hung Chang has recognized the
danger of a Japanese landing at tbe
latter place ana has sent o,uuu picked
troops thither. A Japanese advance
from Shiuan-Kiang would cut tbe best
line of communication betweek Pekin
and Moukden. A simultaneous move
ment on these two places wonld have a
definite atrategio relation. In view of
tbe military and official demoraliza
tion in Cbina, these operations would
have every chance of success, but tbe
lateness of the season alters tbe aspect
of affairs. The destination of tbe
force that sailed from Hiroshima can
not long remain nnknown, even if it is

Tbe organization is bad. Japan, in
Sinclair's opinion, is bound to win,
but defeat will not endanger tbe Man
cbu dynasty, and will probably compel
China to look to Europe for tbe lessons
A dispatshto the Times from Shang
hai today states that according to Chi
nese reports there was no pitobed bat
tle fought at Ping-Yang, Korea. The
Chinese there according to thess stories
only numbered 12,000 men and they
were greatly outnumbered by the Jap
anese troops. Tbe Chinese general,
Yeh, it is also said, was prostrated
with dysentery and withdrew bis whole
force.. General Wei, the Chinese say,
did the same thing, leaving only Gen
eral Tea's force of 2,800 men to fight
against overwhelming odds until all
were killed with the exception of 800,
who were taken prisoners. Nothing is
known at Shanghai in regard to the re
ported insurrections and mutinies on
the part of Chinese troops.
A dispatch from Shanghai says that
native vessels arriving at tbat place
from Niog-Po reported that five Japa
nese warships are lying off tbe Chosan
Islands, fifty miles from Ning-Po.
They add tbat the Japanese warships
have no transports with tbem. Tbe
