Proclaiming Hostilities With the
By Associated Puts.
London, Nov. 5, 11.33 A. M.—lt
was officially announced in Loudon to
day that a state of war exists between
Great Britain and Turkey. The proc
lamation to this effect, which subse
quently was gazetted, reads as follows:
"Owing to hostile acts committed by
the Turkish fortes under German offi
cers, a state of war exists between
Great Britain and Turkey from to-day,
and all proclamations and orders in
council issued with reference to the
State of war betwen Great Britain'and
Germany and Austria shall apply to
the state of war between Great Britain
and Turkey ''
A privy council was held in Buck
ingham palace this morning to discuss
this question. At its conclusion King
George signed the document proclaim
ing the stats of war, and the announce
ment was made.
No British warships are in Chilean
ports. The fate of the throe British
cruisers that eiuaged hve German war
ships off the coast oi Chile and the
transport that accompanied them re-
liiKiiis a mystery.
On tlii3 mystery is based the British
liope that one oi more of their vessels
survived the action. A dispatch from
Santiago to day disposes of an earlier
report that the British cruiser Glasgow
and transport Otiauto had been bottled
vp in Chilean waters by the German
cruisers Leipzig and Bremen. The
whereabouts of the two latter cruisers
is also in doubt. 01 the nine vessels
that figured in the naval battle only the
German warships Scharnhorst, Gneise
neu and Nuruberg have been deiin.teiy
accounted for. After coming into Val
paraiso they again sailed.
Nor was there any word to-day of
the British battleship Crnopus which
the Admiralty says had been sent to
Strengthen Rear Admiral Cradoek's
bquadrcn. There is nothing to iudicate
that she arrived in time to participate
in the iight.
Great Britain has declared war on
Turkey and the Ottoman government
despite dissensions in the Cabinet is
definitely committed to hostilities
against Great Britain, Russia, France
and Servia. While Turkey becomes in
effect an ally of the Teutonic allies she
is strictly speaking waging an indepen

FIRE MENACED DILLSBURC
IVo Blazes for a Time Threatened to
Destroy Big Area in Business
Section of Borough
(Special to the Star-Independent.)
Dillsburg, Pa., Nov. 5.—A fire of
unknown origin broke out in the stable
belonging to Peter Sidle, on South Bal
timore street, last uight about 11
o'clock, and for a time threatened the
entire central part of the town. Due
to the late hour the fire had gained
great headway before it was discov
ered. Two horses and several wagons
belonging to Beehive Baker were burn
ed. The Opera house and several of
the adjoining buildings caught tire sev
eral times but the hard work of the vol
unteer firemen saved these structures.
In the midst of the excitement dur
ing this fight another one was discov
ered in the barn belonging to A. 0.
Plackford on the west side of the
street. The flames spread from there to
Sheffer's Chain Factory, doing about
$2,500 worth of damage to the ma
chinery and building. Next it caught
the stable belonging to Joseph Shef
fer, owner of the Chain Factory. Both
the Blackford and Sheffer stables were
entirely destroyed. It is thought that
the second fire started from sparks
from the first that were carried across
the street and over the houses and
dropped on the dry shingle roof.
The Sidle stable and contents were
entirely destroyed. Sidle carried no in
surance. The Blackford barn was en
tirely destroyed. It was partly covered
by insurance. The Sheffer stable was
entirely destroyed and is partly covered
by insurance. There was insurance
covering damage to chain factory. The
total loss is about $3,000, offset by
only a little more than SI,OOO in
The town hall was saved only by an
eastward wind, as the scarcity of water
in the borough made it necessary to

assistance. The chemical wagon was

PRIZE FIGHTING DOOMED
Law Doing Away With Fistic Sport
By Associated Press.
San Prancisco, Nov. s.—Prize fight
ing is doomed in California in the face
of returns from Tuesday's election as
compiled to-day. The proposed law
doing away with the fistic sport had
been given a majority of votes in the
precincts reporting and as votes wore
distributed throughout the State, it
seemed probable that later figures
would maintain the same ration against

Earlier returns, especially those from
1 cities, made it appear that the anti
light measure had been lost by a nar
row margin. The State has long been

C. A. LINDBLAD RESIGNS
Harrisburg Hospital Superintendent
Has Accepted a Position Nearer
The resignation of Charles Arthur
Lindblad as superintendent of the
Harrisburg hospital, was accepted with
regret by the Board of Trustees of
that institution in special meeting at
noon to-day in the office of Henry B.
McCormick, president of the board.
Mr. Lindblad, who came to Harris
burg from McKeesport, where he was
assistant superintendent ot' a hospital
there, has accepted a position in a
Pittsburgh hospital and hopes to be
gin his new duties there on Decem
ber 1. A member of the Board of
Managers said following the meet
"We accepted Mr. Lindblad's resig
nation with considerable regret. He
has been very successful in Harris
burg in systematizing the handling of
patients. He, however, has accepted a
position in Pittsburgh which is nearer
his home and believes he will be bet
ter satisfied there on that account."
A committee of the board has been

Mr. Lindblad, who will also be a man,
if a suitable one familiar with hospital
work can be found. The committee
hopes to be able to name a successor
by December 1.
CONGRESS STILL DEMOCRATIC
Administration Holds Both Legislative
Branches in Washington
By Associated Press.
New York, Nov. 5. —With four Con
gressional districts still uncertain, re
sults of Tuesday's election show that
the Democrats elected to the House,
2US; Republicans, 194; Progressives,
7; Socialists, 1, and Independents, 1.
This would gL'e the Democrats a ma
jority in the lower house of 25.
Republicans claim tlie election of
Jamos .1. Britt over .1. M. Qudger in
the Tenth district of North Carolina;
N. M. McLean, Republican-Progressive,
in the Third Colorado district, an<d C.
B. Timberlake in the Second Colorado.
The Democrats claim the election of G.
T. Helvering in the Fifth of Kansas.
In that, event there would be a Demo
cratic majority of 23.
In the Senate, late returns left still
somewhat in doubt the elections in
Colorado, Wisconsin and Nevada. The
election of Edward Johnson, Democrat,
over Charles 11. Hiirke, Republican, in
South Dakota was a gain lor the Demo
crats, which offset the defeat of Roger
C. Sullivan. Democrat, in Illinois, by
Senator Lawrence V. Sherman. Latest
reports from Nevada showed Francis
G. Newlamds, Democrat, lending Samuel
Piatt, Republican, by a little more than
200, with about two-thirds of the pre
cincts heard from. Democrats claim the
election of Senator Charles F. Thomas
over Hubert W.ork, Republican, in Col
orado, and the election of Senator
Newlands. The Republicans claimed
the election of Francis E. McGovern
over Paul A. Husting in Wisconsin.
This result, if carried out would
make the representation in the next
Senate 55 Democrats, 4 0 Republicans
and one Progressive, a Democratic ma
jority of 14.
Republicans Leading in Kansas
Topeka, Kan., Nov. s.—With the

George A. Neely, Democrat. With the
re-election to Congress in the Sixth dis
trict of John R. Connolly, Democrat, all
but one of the Congressional districts
had made complete returns. The Fifth
was yet in doubt, although Guy T.
Helvering, Democratic incumbent,
seemed to be leading by a slight ma
jority over W. ('alderhead, Republican.
Late returns indicated the election of
Republican State ticket by pluralities
of from 15,000 to 30.000.

UNKNOWN MAN IS KILLED
Mystery Surrounds Trespasser Struck
by Locomotive in Enola Yards
—Fractured Skull Fatal
Mystery surrounds the finding of a
well-dressed but penniless man in the
Enola yards of the Pennsylvania Rail
road at 4.30 o'clock yesterday after
noon, so seriously hurt that he died this
afternoon at 2.45 o'clock without re
gaining consciousness. There is no
mark of identification, omly two razors
toeing found in his pockets.
The man suffered from a fracture of
the skull and a severe concussion of
the brain, having been struck by a
locomotive while trespassing on the
railroad. Ho was committed to the
Harrisburg hospital, where he was im
mediately operated on.
The man was of medium height and
slender build, but his face and head
were lacerated so badly that his fea
tures were not clear. He was wearing
clean linen and was neatly dressed. His
teeth are in excellent condition and
were filled with gold, proving to the
hospital authorities that he is not the
ordinary railroad trespasser.
M'CORMICK PLANS NO REST
Doesn't Need a Trip, He Says—Too
Busy Even to Coach Yale This Fall
Vance C. McCormick, the defeated
candidate for Governor, has plunged
into business and is forgetting that
there was such a thing as an election
last Tuesday. The report that Mr. Mc-
Cormick will go away to take a long
rest is not correct.
"I have made no plans for taking a
rest," said Mr. McCormick this morn
ing. stopping in the midst of shaking
hands with a dozen people who stopped
him on the way to his office, "and at
present will devote mv entire time to
catching up with my business which
has been neglected in the stress of
campaigning since last March. I don't
know that I need a rest, but I know
that I am confronted with a great deal
of business, and I shall begin to clear
it away as soon as I can."
Almost yearly since his graduation
from Vale, Mr. McCormick, who cap
tained the Eli football eleven and inci
dentally was assigned to a place on the
"All-American team," has made it his
habit to go back to New Haven and
help coach the team for the final big
games of the season. When Mr. Mc-
Cormick was asked to-day if he ex
pects to help coach Yale this year, he
"I am going to New Haven on No
vember 16 to attend a meeting of the
Yale Corporation, of which I am a mem
ber. 1 expect also to see Yale play in
both the Princeton and Harvard games.
However, my business has accumulated
so during the campaign that I hardly
think I will have time to get out on
the coaching lines this fall."

OFFICIAL COUNT STARTS
No Material Change Looked for in
Election Results in Dauphin County
The official count of the vote cast in
the 123 precincts of Dauphin county
at Tuesday r s election was begun at
noon to-day. Judge McC&rrell was on
the bench and the returns were read by
Prothonotary Henry P. Holler. The
computation is being made by Benjamin
P. IJmberger and Frank E. Ziegler.
The official results will not be
known until late to-morrow, as it is
figured that all of to-day and most of
to-morrow morning will be taken up
with the count.
The material results in this county
will not be changed, however, as ail
successful candidates have safe majori
ties. It is expected, however, that there
will be slight changes in the totals.
Returns of half a dozen districts
were counted before the noon recess to
day. The figures were practically the
same as the unofficial returns printed
yesterday in the Star-Independent.

It will take the official count of the
ballots cast throughout the State on
Tuesday to determine whether Goorpo
Kunkei, president judge of Dauphin
county, has beaten Judge Frazer, oi'
Pittsburgh, for Judge of the Supreme
Court. This was admitted by mem
bers of the Kunkei campaign commit
tee in this city this afternoon.
While the Kunkei committee won I• I
issue uo official statement it was loani
ed that at noon unofficial returns re
ceived by the committee from 64 of
the 67 counties of the State gave
Kunkei a slight lead. The committee
declined to state the size of the ma
jority indicated at that time.
One encouraging bit of news for
the many friends of Judge Kunkei m
this, his home county, was contain' ,
in an Associated Press dispatch re
ceived this morning from Heading,
which said the complete but unofficia
returns in Berks county gave Kunke
a majority there of 7,069 over Prater.
Earlier returns had indicated a smaller
lead for Kunkei in Berks.
It was, of course, expected that
Judge Kunkei would run behind jn
Philadelphia and Allegheny counties,
the latter being the home county o.
Judge Prazer. The complete unofficial
returns from Philadelphia, according
to the Associated Press, gave Prazer
a majority of 2.3,526 over Kunkei.
This was offset almost entirely by the
handsome majority of 20,167, unof
ficial, that Kunkei got in Dauphin.
As was expected Allegheny counly
gave Prazer a lead of probably be
tween 70.0K)0 and 80,000, which the
friends of Judge Kunkei are hoping
will be wiped out by t,h e returns from
the other counties of the State, it Ic
ing admitted that Kunkei has carried
a majority of the counties outside of
Philadelphia and Allegheny.
What Associated Press Says
The Associated Press, at 1.36 o'cloek
this afternoon, sent the following dis
patch from Philadelphia:
"Additional returns received to-dav
show that the vote for Supreme Court
on the non-partisan ballot was close.
Practically complete but unoflicial fig
ures from 52 of the 67 counties show
the following. Robert S. Prazer, 320,.
156; Gorge Kunkei, 319,899,
These figures include all of Alle
gheny county, the home of Judge Prat
er, with the exception of 24 districts.
They also include the vote of Dauphin
county, the home of Judge Kunkei.
"The missing Allegheny districts
will raise Frazer's total about 3,000.
but this gain will be offset by Delaware
county, which is believed to have given
Kunkei a majority of about 3,000.
