Tallahassee, Sept. 9. The supreme
court puts it up to the members of
the state canvassing board to prove
their averments of fraud in Madison

their return to the alternative writ of
the court directing them to reconvene
and canvass the amended returns of
the primary election, or show cause
why they should not. The return was
filed and argued yesterday and the
court handed down its opinion late
this afternoon, which is concurred in
by the four justices present.

turns and evidence of the ballots and

there is anything to the first issue and
disposes of it in short order, but as to

merit.'-' ." V -v:,

Sixteen or More Lives Lost this Morn Morn-ing
ing Morn-ing in the Wreck of the
Quebec, Sept. 11. From sixteen to
twenty-five men are believed to have
been killed when the new central span-
of the Quebec bridge over the St.
Lawrence river, the largest cantilever
bridge in the world, collapsed when
fteen feet in the air as it was being
hoisted into place this morning.
Ninety men were on the section,
which sank in two hundred feet 7f
water. A roll call will be necessary
to determine the exact loss.
The bridge was being constructed
at a cost of $17,000,000 in order to
shorten the railway journey from
Halifax to the Canadian northwest by
200 miles.- It stands on the sit of the
structure which collapsed August 29,
1907, with a loss of seventy lives.
CELEBRATION TURNED INTO
Many Canadian government offi
cials, including- cabinet members and
several thousand tourists saw the
bridge collapse. A special train has
arrived here with twenty of the injur
ed. It is estimated that the dead will
range from three to twenty-five, the
latter number being the estimate of
the St. Lawrence Bridge Co! The
span was 640' feet long and weighed
five thousand tons.

GEO. F. WILLIAMS
Mr. George F. Williams, for onany
years a resident of Ocala, died at his
home a few minutes before 11 o'clock
last night at the age of 42 years. He
had been in ill healt hfor some time.
His death will be deeply regretted by
all who knew him, and he had numer
ous friends in this city arid through
out the county.
Mr. Williams was born in Marion,
S. C 42 years ago, on July 11. He
came to Ocala 21 years ago, and was
shortly afterward married to Miss
Mary E. Proctor, of this city. Be
sides Mrs. Williams, he is survived by
a son, George Williams, a member of
Company A, now at Black Point, and
two daughters, Miss Beatrice Will Williams,
iams, Williams, and little Miss Auri Williams.
Mr. George Williams had been home
from Black Point for, a visit, and re
turned to camp early yesterday
morning. He is expected tto reach
home this afternoon.
The funeral will be held from the
residence tomorrow morning at 9 30
The interment will take place in
Greenwood cemetery. Rev. Bunyan
Stephens will officiate.
.There probably never was a kinder
hearted man than George Williams
no one more faithful to his word
During his long residence here, he
has made hundreds of friends, all' of
who have deeply sympathized with
him in his long illness, and sincerely
mourn his death.
Mr. WiHiams was one of the oldes
members of Fort King Camp, Wood
men of the World, and that organiza
tion will have charge of his funeral.
The allies are probably not worried
and their enemies have no reason to
be elated over the advance of the
Turks and Bulgars in Southeastern
Rumania. The great bulk of the Ru
manian kingdom is north of the
Danube, but about a sixth of it, the
Dobrud ja, lies in the corner between
the Danube, the Black Sea and Bui
garia. It is in this corner that the
Bulgars and Turks have been success
ful. The Dobru'dja is a low, fla
country, the terrain of which offers no
natural facilities for resistance. The
Roumanians do not seem to be try trying,
ing, trying, very vigorously to defend it. They
rely on the line of the Danube to pro
tect their country, and in the mean
time are attacking the Austrians
with vigor and effect in Transylvania.
The Danube is a big river and well
defended. There is very little chance
that the Turks and Bulgars will ever
win across it, even if they succeed in
driving the Roumanians back to it all
along the line. The Roumanians aided
by the Russians will probably hold
the northern half of the Dobrud ja un until
til until such a time as they are ready to
attempt the counter invasion of Bul Bulgaria.
Sidney J. Catts is a hard candidate
for his managers to train. He makes
a statement at one place and denies
at the, next that he said it, according
to his fancy. He now denies that he
made any attack on the high school
girls of Florida, but his speech in
Jacksonville was stenographically re reported,

he cannot deny: "I don't know how it

commander of the American cruiser
was certain. Equally certain had been
the other oflicers who had foregathered
with him at the Army and Navy club
the night before he sailed.
"It's no use talking any more about
what the government ought to order
us to do," one of the oldest and most
revered of the oflicers said. "Now is
the time for us to do something."
"What?" Barrett had asked.
"What you can do should be perfect perfectly,

No one questioned, so after putting
to sea Barrett had steered his course
to the east. The first day showed him
nothing to stir him further, but at
sunrise of the second day he had sight sighted

"Can you give us any more, Mr. Han Han-Ion?"

"I'll try, sir."
Within the hour the biplane had dis disappeared,

ship rushed east at full speed, and at
night, with all ports covered and with
the switches of the lighting circuits
thrown out, Barrett had- driven his
ship on through the darkness. No
light from another ship, no sound of
another's engine, no smell of another's
smoke had reached him or his lookouts
during the night. Dawn had discovered
to him only an empty sea, gray and
rugged, obscured a little by mist. The
day brought no other ship within the
circle of the horizon, but now It was
another dawn and now, as Barrett
scanned the water, he 'saw a crate

FIND NEW VENOMOUS SNAKE
Reptile Has Proved to Be "Consider "Considerable
able "Considerable of a Puzzle" to California
A poisonous snake that reptile ex
perts and naturalists have so far been
unable to classify, and which may be
of a new species, came into the posses
sion of Ed Hambly and Jack Horn.
The snake was caught by a Mexican at
one of the road camps near Los Ange
The snake has two fangs, each about
one-eighth of an inch long.; In an
effort to determine whether or not the
reptile is poisonous It was placed in
an Inclosure with a white rat The
rat was bitten and died In convulsions
The snake is three and one-half feet
In length and olive green in color. Its
color changes to. a pale yellow when
It Is angered and light brown mark
ings appear upon Its back. Contrary
to other venomous snakes, It has the
double set of scales that are found on
harmless varieties. The scales are
smooth and It has extraordinarily long
jawbones. Its eyes are the round-pu-
piled eyes of the harmless snake, and
It has only one set of nostrils. Its
head Is of the same shape as its harm
less brothers. Its tail tapers to a fine
point and the snake itself differs In
shape from other poisonous reptiles In
that it Is slender rather than thick
It strikes without coiling and moves
with great swiftness. While being ex examined

poison for a distance of 17 Inches.
; Dr. Charles L. Edwards, naturalist
for the public schools, inclines to the
belief that it may be related to the
vipers. "Until this time I have never
known of a smooth-scaled snake which
was poisonous," he said.
How German Army Horses Are Dyed.
Because of the shortage of horses In
Germany It has been found expedient
to dye white and dappled horses a
field-gray, as already noted in Popular
Mechanics Magazine, thereby giving
them the same protective coloring as
the soldiers' uniforms and making
them available for military "purposes.
The coloring when firstf applled gives
the horse a violet hue, which later
changes Into greenish-brown by reason
of the chemical action of the sweat
retained in the hair. A staff apothe apothecary
cary apothecary of the German army has found
that the best dye Is a 1 per cent solu
tlon of permanganate of potassium.
This Is applied to the head, legs, and
upper part of the body with a brush
and to the more sensitive parts with
a, sponge. The coloring is permanent.
harmless, and costs about 50 cents per
horse. -Popular Mechanics Magazine.
