Ballots Ran Short at
Democrats Made Nominations for
Haley Won In Ward 3 by Two Votes Over Conway.
In Ward 6 Doherty Had Tw# More Than Shannon.
Patrolmen Watched Tumult in Ward 22 Wardroom.
Democratic caucuses werw held throughout the city last night for the nominations of candidates for tho common council.
They were conducted free of all disturbances, although In a few Instances there were lively contests on the part of some of the candidates for the coveted nomination.
Complaints of Insufficient ballots were made In wards I, 8, 14 and 22, where many cltisens were unable to vote In the absence of ballots. So worked up were the citizens In ward 8, where over aw voters could not cast their ballots, that an indignation meeting was held and the bureau of elections roundly condemned. Special reference to the shortage of ballots and consequent controversy Is made In another column.
Of the 75 nominees, 22 are members of the present common council.
Th. re were 1476 votes cast In ward 2. and it was 1.45 this morning before the announcement of the result was made. Seven candidates, two of the present councilmen and five other aspirants for the honor, mustered the solid strength of their personal following, and from 4 until IO there was a line of voters beurre tho rail extending far Into Maverick aq. Councilmen Conry and Thomas L. Kelly were renominated, holding accend third places respectively. The vote: William B. Whitney 802. Joseph A. Conry 793, John L. Kelly '*9. William J Cronin 614, George F. Mooney 43.1, Christian Gueth 228, Henry Hero 26.
In Charlestown, which has two prospective candidates for th# presidency of the next council -William J. .Miller of ward 6 and John J. O'Callaghan of ward *—th# caucuses were largely attended. Both men are renominated. O’Callaghan was the second highest candidate in his ward, and Miller the flrat In hts. The former received 665 votes and the latter 727, which is one of the largest caucus votes ever cast for a candidate In the district.
In word 3 Councilman Tague was the highest man, with 676 votes to his credit. Councilman Malay Just escaped defeat by two votes, he having 422 and Peter P. Conway 420. The latter will probably ask for a recount. The caucus officers say that never was a vote counted more carefully than last night. Daniel G. McNamara got SI votes.
In ward 4 there were five contestants Councilman Connerton received SJW. John E McCarthy 843, Councilman Mahoney 386, Joseph A. Turnbull 314 and Chart >8 H. McCarthy 290.
In ward 5 Councilman Brock's vote was 587, Dennis J. Falvey’a 426. William Schwab's 268, Robert F. Doyle's 217, William F. Cook's 216 and Valentine Cloug'herty’a 148.
There were IO candidates in ward 6, and the caucus proved one of the largest In years, 122? votes being cast. The contest between James A. Doherty and James F. Shannon was very close, Doherty winning over Shannon by two votes. Th© hitter will probably petition for a recount. John A. Ryan headed the list with 406, M. F. McDonough was next with 335, James A. Doherty had 328, R. J. O’Neil 235, James F. Shannon 326, I). J. Sullivan 216, Andrew Gran-nara 230. Arthur Bernstein 163, James F. McGinnis 65 and a Mr Lewis 16 votes.
In ward 9 th© polls were opened from 7.30 to 8 and 44 ballots were cast. There was a friendly contest for th© third place between William H. Cook and Matt Fitzgerald, and when the voles were counted It was found that Cook had 32 and Fitzgerald 9.
For two hour* and a quarter every booth In the ward 12 wardroom was filled. There are about 1000 democratic voters In the ward, and more than half of this number cast a ballot. There were six candidates and the result was as follows: John J. McGonagle 280. Michael T. Callahan 267, John Frank Keating 226, Timothy J. Butler 225, John J. Faivey 186, Thomas Mackey 131.
The result was somewhat of a sur-
?rise. From th© manner which voters urned out It was expected that Butler would run far up into the list. That he should be fourth and defeated no one anticipated. Butler’s friends believed an error was made In the count, which was necessarily done In haste, and for this reason only will they ask for a recount. __
In ward 13 three new men were nominated. There were 1080 ballots cast, and the vote was as follows: Hugh W. Brosnahan 583, Patrick J. O’Toole 626, James F. Mahoney Jr 888, WlHlam H. Woods 378, Thomas F. O'Brien 817, M. V, Maloney 131. William C. Tlrrell 118.
In ward 14 there was a much larger caucus than was anticipated, and It a'as midnight when the result was announced, as follows: John E. Baldwin 587. John H, Dunn 495, William P. Hickey 418, James S. Buckley 317. John J. Murphy 210, John J. Coyle 205, Thomas Walsh 90
Voting was very brisk In ward 16. 78i ballots being cast during the three hours that the polls remained open. There were IO candidates In the field, only one of whom sought a renomination. This was Patrick Bowen, one of the successful three. The result of the balloting was as follows: John Dugan 302, David McCarthy 302, Patrick Bowen 298, Charles E. Barnett 238. WlHlam A. Dcogue 194. Isaac H. Felnberg 111, Richard J. Geary 98, Edward T. Mann 63, Timothy L. Hagerty 48 and Jeremiah F. Kelleher 42.
In ward 22 the officers had provided 1000 ballots, but they were exhausted at 9.45, after toe voting had been in progress nearly five hours, and there was considerable indignation when it was learned that some of the voters would not be able te register their will.
It took until about 12.30 to count the ballots, and for nearly two hours the ward room outside the rail was a scene of continual tumult, a sergeant of police and three patrolmen sitting behind the rail apparently oblivious to the Invasion of the rights of those who were quietly disposed b> a few troublesome ones.
The vote was announced as follows: Edward H. COBtello 601, Charles P. Wangle 432, Charles Jacobs 412, Michael J Whalen 355, Patrick J. Stone 246, John Kilroy 200.
There were only three candidates in ward 25, and 28 ballots were cast.

official circles her© upon th© extraordinary letter of the sultan of Turkey to Lord Salisbury, and the latter’* remarkable speech In reply thereto, last night.
Salisbury'* expressions are construed by the Washington government to mean that Great Britain has fully decided to place her confidence in the ability of the sultan to deal with th© disorders In hit empire, and that there wll be no interference on the part of Oreat Britain unless matters should take a turn most decidedly for the worse,
It Is fair to say that then- Is more or less disappointment in administration circles over Great Britain's decision to place so much trust In the sultan. While it Is believed the reports of massacres have been greatly exaggerated, the dispatches received from Minister Terrell In part confirm the newspaper accounts of wholesale butcheries and great suffering In the disaffected district*.
The suspicion is general In well Informed quarters In Washington that Great Britain fears to take decisive action lest Russia obtain advantage out of the demoralization of Turkish authority which might follow. More than one official of th© Washington government has today expressed the opinion that England is more eager to checkmate Russia than to put a stop to Moslem atrocities In Armenia and other parts of Asia Minor. . .
There Is at the same time regret in the minds of members of the Washington government that our political Isolation and our treaty with Turkey prevent the I’nlted States taking still more active measures In the Orient.

CHURCH TEMPERANCE WORK.
Rev T. W, Nicktr*on Jr Tell* How It Combines the Effort* of Moderate Drinkers and Abstainers.
Owing to the Inclemency of the weather th* attendance at th© annual public meeting of th© New England department of the Church Temperance society was small. It was held at Trinity chapel last evening.
Addresses were made by Rev Thomas YV. Nickerson Jr, rector of the church of the Messiah, Boston, on "The Double Bnsia of th© Church Temperance Society:” by Rev William 8. Chase, rector of St James' church, Woonsocket, R I, on "Rescue Work," and by Rev Eugene J. V. Hulguin, rector of St Peter’s church, Beverly, on “Temperance In Its Effect on Character."
Rev Thomas Nickerson said, In part: "Church temperance work rests upon a twofold basis, In other words, a union and cooperation of those who use liquor temoerately and those who abstain entirely from Intoxicating drinks."
Mr Nickerson touched upon the history of the early movement of church temperance work. In early times all temoerance workers felt that to work against the Honor habit successfully necessitated their being total abstainers. This feeling shut out from their societies all men and women who, while disbelieving In the excessive use of Intoxicants. did believe in their use In moderation.
The Church temperance society of the present day, while grateful for the earnest and zealous work of the early church societies, was glad to feel that It was now possible for total abstainers, and people who are not, to work along the same line with common interests for the success of tho same reform.
Dr Chase is a man eminently fitted to discuss rescue work, to which he has paid much attention. He made no argument or appeal, but went straight at the heart of his subject, and related many of his own experiences at Woonsocket.
The work was begun In a carpenter shop some three years ago. Now so Interested have the people become In the rescue work, that the committee In charge bas been enabled to purchase for larger and liner quarters. Mr Chase believes that all men, no matter how deeply the liquor habit has fastened upon them, or how old and hardened they may have become through circumstances, may be redeemed and reformed.
Ile does not talk to the men he is trying to help, of heaven and church doctrine, nor does he try to influence any human being to change his religious views. To the reformed Roman Catholic he says: “Go to your priest;” and to the Protestant he says: “Go to your minister, of whatever denomination he may chance to be."
The meeting closed with an interesting address by Rev Eugene Huiguin on tho influence of temperance on character. __ _ _

Scituate Greatly Stirred Up Over the Tragedy.
Slrnnsre (irciiinstancps anil Conflicting Stories Told.
PROVIDENCE, Nov 20-Scltuat© Is again stirred up by a mysterious tragedy. For over two weeks th© authorities bav© been st work on the suspicious circumstances surrounding th© shooting of old John W. Bossier.
Now th© charge I# mad# by coron#r A. K. Wood that h# was murdered, and this afternoon Judge Clark# Johnson issued a warrant for th© arna* of Mrs Clara Valois, th© daughter of th© victim.
The warrant was placed In the custody of Deputy Sheriff Nathan Colvin, and lf Mrs Valois can he found she will be at one© placed In custody and arraigned upon the murder charge In the district court at Olneyvllle.
Deputy rthei Iff Colvin does not believe that he will ever be abl© to lay his hands upon the young woman, The authorities are of the opinion that sh© ha* departed from Rhode Island with th© Intention of going to Germany.
Her present whereabouts ara unknown. and no on© can say with any degree of accuracy what the young woman Intended to do after she had finished a brl^f consultation with her attorney, Congressman Page, which she had on Monday night last. At that time Mrs Valois came to Providence for th© especial purpose of notifying Congressman Page of her Impending arrest on the charge of murder. Sh© said that th© officers out In Scituate were openly accusing her of having shot her aged fa- * thor to death while he slept In l»©d. Sh© declared that this was all fats©, and that sh© had no more to do with her father’* death than th© congressman.
Mrs Valid# was told to go hack lo ber home, and lf th© officers came to submit to ai feet. She was also told, In response to some Interrogation#, that heavy ball might be required In a murder ia#«, and that she would probably have to stay out at Cranston Jail for some time awaiting the action of the grand Jury Mrs Valois then left her attorney s office, and there is no trace of her since that hour, which was about 4 o’clock last Monday afternoon.
The killing with which Mrs Valois is now charged occurred on Nov 7. That morning, according to the statements of Mrs Valois, she found her father lying on his own bed with a bullet hole In bls forehead, quito near to th© temple. The boily was found at 9 o’clock or thereabouts.
The accused daughter said that it wits a clear case of suicide; that th© revolver was purchased by her father while he was in Providence only two days previous to that time. Sh# said also that he had been despondent and sick over troubles and lawsuits with his neighbors, and that lie feared h* would land in Cranston jail if farmer Leach got a verdict against him for trespass.
This was Mrs Vaiols’ first story. At later periods sh© varied it considerably, und the story told to coroner Wood was quite different.
The statement of the widow and accused daughter were very conflicting and contradictory in the most essential points.
There were five witnesses before the coroner at th© Inquest. Mrs E, Bossier, the widow, Mary Randall, Martin Randall, Dr Samuel ll. Smith and Mrs Clara Valois.
The developments at the Inquest on used coroner Wood to prepare this official report for presentation to Atty Gen Dubois:
“From testimony adduced, we find that th© said John W. Bossier came to bls death on the "tit day of November from ii pistol shot wound In th© head, at th# hands of some person or persons unknown to the coroner.”
(Signed) A. E. Wood.
The Av# witnesser who appeared before the coroner showed In a general way that Hut© had been trouble In tho household, over the property. There was evidence concerning a bill of sale from Bossier to the accused daughter of some $500 worth of personal property, Including some cattle One or two witnesses testified that the old man said not long before he was found slain, that “If I am ever found dead you can lay It to my daughter.”
There were other developments which will not at present be revealed.
There was ii good deal said about the revolver which was used. When the old man was found dead, th© weapon was partially tucked away In the vest, well up on tho breast. The hands were stretched to the extremities. This was noticed at once by the neighbors when they were called in. An autopsy was held by Dr Smith, the regular medical examiner of the town, and while hts official rt hart no' been made public, the build I© reported to hive taken a downward course, passing from th4 frontal bone down Into the jaw.
The theory of the prosecuting officers In the town Is that the bullet wan never fired by Bossier himself, hut that he was shot from behind while he lay on his lied. This, they say, is a fair conclusion of how old man Bossier was killed.
There were only the old couple and the accused daughter occupying the house at the time. During the previous night Mrs Bossier and Mrs Valois occupied the sam* apartment, and Bossier slept alone.
There was the greatest tardiness In notifying the authorities and when the prosecuting officers finally trot to work on the case they encountered many difficulties.
On Nov 2 Mrs Valuls was granted a bill of divorce In th© supreme court here from Adolph Valois, a young rn in of some property. The petitioner filed her application through Congressman Page last May. Tile allegations were non-support and extreme cruelty. The only question which caused any opposition from Valois, the respondent, was that relating to alimony. He agreed to $50o, but resisted $1000.
Nov 2 his counsel. Edward S. Hopkins, conceded the $1000 and (his sum was paid over to Congressman Page and th.-n to Mrs Valois.
Congressman Page said tonight of his client:
“She does not fear a prosecution In the least, for she say# the murder charged is all moonshine. If ©he has skipped, then she has money enough. She has money enough to defend herself properly lf she does not skip.
There are certainly many strange circumstances connected with the case, but Congressman Page says Mrs Valois cannot be convicted, though perhaps «he may have talked too much since tho tragedy.

WASHINGTON. Nov 29 For th© present nothing is being done at th© state department in the ease of ex consul Waller, this fact tieing due to Mr* Waller's peru!.ar views rather than to lack of Interest in the mutter on the part of th© secretary of state.
Keo Olney was making satisfactory progress In bls effort# to secure the release of Mr Waller as an act of courtesy on the part of the French government when Mrs Walter interposed an objection on the ground that her husband’# llhcrat.on from prison might stop him from collecting an indemnity from Franc© for his ucrest and imprisonment,
Hee Olney thereupon called Mrs Waller and her lawyers to th© stat* department and suggested to them that a letter be sent to Mr Waller asking him What he wished to have don© In th© i matter of his rely its© Th© attorneys agreed to this proposal and were about to send th© letter when Mr# Wailer Interposed an objection thereto and th* letter has not been sent.
Mr Waller'# attorneys admit that their client has no ease against th# French government, an I that no reason exists why the United States should ask for bis release except as an act of grace. This admission necessarily carries with It certain failure of any effort to collect an indemnity from the French government, though it se.‘ms impossible to tiring Mrs Waller to a realisation of th© rad. Rh© prefers that her husband remain in prison if thereby her chances of collecting an Indemnity may bs improved. In this view it is well known she I# upheld by member# of congress from Kansas, who are desirous of using the Waller episode as th© basis for an attack upon the administration. Under the circumstances, th© stat# department Is naturally doing nothing and awaiting develop!, mts.
Mr# waller’s demand for an Indemnity for her husband’s incarceration should not be confused w.th bis right to th© valuable concession of land
5ranted him by the Hovas. It I* until stood here that the French government does not deny Mr Waller'© title to that concession. If any difficulty should be encountered in securing possession of th© land thus granted h.m the state department is prepared to champion his cause upon its merits.
The statement ha# been published that the French government refuses to furnish th© stat© department with a transcript of the record made in th© court by which Waller wa# convicted, but this is untrue. The stat© department al reedy h## that record and it has been translated.
