It was a remarkable election day in every
particular. The novel scenes and the many
exciting episodes are fully related in the
local columns. To the very last hour of
Toting the Prohibition managers were buoy
ant with hope. It was this that made their
A. S. Zetlie, Secretary of the Constitutional
bravado so marvelous. And as this was an
election in which estimates or gnesses were
absolutely worthless, many people thought
the temperance people had as much cause
for hopefulness as the other side. Scat
tered throughout Tub Dispatch's ac
counts of the day are interviews with prom
inent men of all sides, giving an epitome of
public opinion on the result They are
from both the victors and the vanquished.

Thev Deceived Their Returns Soberly
Shut tip Hendqnnrters Enrly, Snlls-
Ded With Sncccsi Claiming tho
Connly by 30,000.
At the anti-amendment headquarters, at No.
60 Fourth avenue, returns were received both
by telephone, telegraph wire and messengers.
The room is on the fourth floor, and no one
was admitted unless they had business, as it
was feared that the rooms would become too
At the lower door on Fourth avenne was
stationed P. C. Friend, who would allow no
one to enter until his card was sent- up by one
of the messenger boys.
In the room upstairs Mr. Charles Duffy pre
sided as Chairman, while Judge Fetterman sat
by bis side, but said never a word all night
Two return sheets were kept Magistrate John
Gripp, Mayor's'Clerk W. H. McCleary, and
P. V. Llebert were the persons who were most
active in keeping the returns.
There was a constantly flowing crowd despite
all efforts to keep it down, and the rooms were
pretty well filled in a short time. Only that
persons went out once in a while the people
who came In would finally have been compelled
to stand on each other's heads or else stay out
It certainly was a quiet, even though it was a
thoroughly confident, gathering.
Of course there was beer to drink, because it
was a very hot night a room far too small and
too illy ventilated for so many people,and water
has been tabooed, even by Prohibitionists, for
more than a fortnight But the nectar of Gam
brinus was used in moderation, and only for
legitimate moistening of the throat There
was not one man present the whole night who
showed the slightest indications of intoxica
tion. Indeed, it was a vastly more quiet and
orderly crowd than usually assembles In head-'
quarters on election night
Tnemogt prominent wholesale dealers and
brewers in the two cities, as well as several of
the more wealthy saloon keepers, were present
Even bursts of enthusiasm were quickly
checked, in order that the place should be kept
quiet for reading returns.
BETUBNS COME JS BAPIDLY.
The returns began to come in very rapidly
after 8 o'clock, and as they were read out by
Chairman Duff there was only an occasional
exclamation of surprise. AU present felt so
confident that the county had gone over
whelmingly against the amendment that they
did not have any inclination to do much cheer
ing. However, when a telegram came in showing
that Juniata county had given on ly 150 ma jority
for the amendment there was considerable
congratulation, because, as Chairman Duff re
marked: "That was one of their 2,500 coun
ties." When the Second district of the Twenty
seventh ward came in with the figures "390
against 2 for," there was a genuine cheer.
Messrs. Gnpp and McCleary kept the gains
and losses based on Beaver's vote. When 17
districts bad been heard from, there was a
gain of 2,067 votes in a total of 16,011. Later on
it was announced that in 74 districts there was
a gain in majority over Beaver's vote, of 7.3SS.
"That makes 25,000 for the county," said T.
Yes," remarked Mr. McCleary, "It'll make
27,000 to 30,000."
Then 79 districts showed a gain of over
8,000. One of the remarkable things was that
the Ninth ward alone showed a gain of 638 over
the vote for Beaver.
When 84 districts bad been beard from, show
ing a gain of 8,395. Chairman Duff called for
order and announced it
This was immediately followed by a dispatch
from Philadelphia stating that 16 wards in that
city bad given 42,000 majority against the
amendment This was not unexpected, but
helped to swell the enthusiasm, which was
gradually growing as the returns kept up the
indications of overwhelming victory. Chair
man Duff remarked, "We don't want the earth,
bnt we do want 100.000 majority."
This was immediately followed by the state
ment that the Sixteenth ward had given 938
majority against the amendment It was some
what of a surprise, as strenuous efforts had
been made by the Prohibitionists to carry the
ward. The majority of 209 in the Seventeenth
ward, against the amendment where Secretary
Leslie, ol the Amendment Committee, and Rev.
j. i-. oaous, who ure in me warn, maae phe
nomenal efforts to carry the voters for prohi
bition, gave peculiar satisfaction to Mr.
Seibert who had used every effort to defeat the
The greatest satisfaction was obtained from
the returns from the boroughs and townships
in Allegheny county, showing that the Prohi
bitionists had not maintained their supposed
strength outside the city. Little bulletins like
"Berks county gives 19,000 against the amend
ment" "Beading city gives 7,500 against" and
further telegrams from Philadelphia, indicat
ing that the city would go from 60,000 to 90,000
against the amendment helped to cheer those
who listened to them, as that was the kind of
stuff they wanted to hear.
THE FIHAL FIGUEIXO.
It was about 1130 o'clock that Mr. McClurg,
after doing some figuring, announced that 141
districts out of the 319 in the county had been
heard from, and gave a gain on Beaver's vote of
"Why." exclaimed "W. A. Magee, who had
just came in, "that will math the county 30,000
against the amendment" !
Of the 141 districts in 93 ere in Pittsburg,
leaving 49 still to be heard from. It was con
cluded at once to close np and go home.
Mr. Wertbeimer stepped on a table, andhold
ing a glass of beer aloft, exclaimed, "We have
met the enemy and they are ours."
"Yes," remarked T. O'lieary. Jr., "by over
100.000 in the State."
The headquarters were speedily deserted,
and the persons who bad been present went
out on the streets to shake bands with many
friends w ho were waiting below, and had not
been able to pass the guardian at the loner
Chairman Duff said he felt very sure that
what bo had been hoping for, a majority of
100,000, had been reached and even surpassed,
and he felt perfectly satisfied.
ON THEIR KNEES.
Thrilling Incident and Impressive Scenes
nt Iho All-Day Frnrer Meetings
How Women Heard of the He
salts at Voting Places.
The all-day prayer meeting at Smithfield
Street M. E. Church was largely attended both
morning and afternoon. It was conducted
each hour by a different woman. All were
well-known officers of the W. C. T. TJ. or ladles
connected with church work independent of
temperance organizations. Mrs. Graff presided
at the organ and Mrs. Iter. Locke announced
the hymns. The proceedings all day were en
livening, bnt at times became very impressVve.
It was between 2 and 3 o'clock when TDK DlS
rATCH reporter dropped into the church.
A lady dressed In deep monmlngwasjjust at
that moment pleading with young women to
uso their influence upon the young man of the
When she had finished, another woman and
a bright vivacious soul, too jumped up with
this little story :
"To-day at noon I was walking down Smith
field street for lunch. I had just passed the
polling place in Municipal Hall when three
young men came out and walked on ahead ol
me. 'You can't get your vote in,' said one of
them, 'until a woman gets bold of yon and tells
you how to vote.' I stepped right up to that
young fellow and said to blm : 'Look here,
young man, nothing better could get hold of
you than a woman provided she is a good
woman. You should vcte to please her.' He
looked confused and then said: 'Why, you're
one of those old W. C. T. TJ. women.' Yes, I
am one of those old W. C. T. U. women, and I
thank God for it"
A rSALM AND BAILOI TALK.
"I want to read aloud one of David's Psalms
about wickedness." Then she read it in a low,
rhythmetic tone. Tho selection was indeed
suitable to the theme of the day.
Still another woman arose to speak. She
related her experience of taking caro of tho
prohibition ballots at one of the precinct polls
In the Fifteenth ward. The liquor agents there
first tried to bulldoze her by announcing that
they would allow no electioneering within 50
feet of the voting window, and as she was
electioneering she must leave. She demanded
to see the law for their demand.
They sent her back of the window
and there a man banded her an open Purdon,
but she could not find the law they mentioned
and defied them to put beraway. They did
not try it but when she returned to her stand
she found anti-amendment tickets substituted
in her box for the temperance slips. She de
nounced this as fraud, and said the women
could be very useful at tho polls.
At this juncture Mrs. H. C. Campbell took
charge of the meeting. She said she had just
come from a similar prayer meeting at North
Avenue M. E. Church, and there she had been
IMPRESSED "WITH THE POWEH
of earnest, concerted and continual prayer.
She had been aiding in that all morning. As a
result she had heard favorable reports from the
polls at frequent intervals such reports as left
her withont doubt of the victory of the Pro
hibitionists. One such incident Mrs. Campbell related. At
the voting place Where her hnsband was in at
tendance a gentleman well known in Allegheny
came up to vote. He had boasted all along that
he was going to vote againtt prohibition, and to
execute the boast be asked for and received an
anti-amendment ballot Bnt before he had time
to cast it a bystander stepped up to him and
said: "Do you know, sir. that your
Christian mother is at this moment on her
bended knees in that church across
there praying that you illl vote for
temperance!' For a moment the voter stood
still; then he threw down the anti-amendment
ticket, left the polls, and in spite of all the per
suasion liquor men have tried on him they
have not yet succeeded in getting him to
Then Mrs. Canipbell delivered the most im-
Eassloned prayer to a throne of grace that was
eard in cither Pittsburg or Allegheny ester
day. It was broken by sobs and "amensp
thronghont its quarter of an hour's duration.
As the softened audience sang "Hide Thou
in Me," a brass band, tooting in the interest of
liquor, passed up Seventh avenue. Its dis
cordant strains were soon followed by the war
song, "Hold the Fort," sung by children
namea past tne cnurcn in two wagons.
PBAYEB FOE THE SOBER SIX.
Scarcely observing the interruption, Mrs.
Campbell read another passage of Scriptures,
and then announced four persons who would
pray before the people arose from their seats.
"I want the audience to pray for six men
who, between the hours of 12 and 1, cast their
votes for temperance, and who, for the first
time in their life, are sober on election day.
Pray for them thatthey may remain so."
This was what a rongh-clad workingman
called out to the audience as it was about
kneeling for the season Of prayer. Many were
the fervent petitions sent up for the six voters
At all other prayer meetings similar inci
dents occurred. At North Avenue M. E.
Church the prayer meeting began at 7 a.m.
and lasted until 7 P. if. In several of the Pres
byterian and U. P. Churches of Allegheny and
and Pittsburg the women put in most of the
day praying and singing. Some few men at
tended beside clergymen.
Altogether it was a strange but solemn
spectacle for an election day.
EAST END WOMEN.

where 09 tho
At probably no other point in the two cities
was the contest for votes more vigorously
fought by both sides than in the East End
yesterday.- The ladies of the W. C. T. TJ. were
out early in full forco over a hundred of them,
and they were out to win, at least in their
field of the conflict as all affirmed. The bells
of Dr. Kuinler's Church, Emory M. E., and
several others were rang from time to time,
and cervices held all day in nearly all of the
other churches. The ladies were flitting to
and fro between the polling places and seemed
baffled at naught which would induce a man to
vote their ticket Three or four always man
aged to stay at each polling place. The "tables
of persuasion" of each party were generally on
opposite sides of the doors.
At Alderman Hyndman's office, the polling
place of the First preclnt of the Twentieth
ward, three ladies, an old man and other
younger man represented the "prohibs" on one
side of the door. On tlje other
A HOST OP "ANTIS"
were watching that the anti-votes went in.
On the table was a box of tobies, as a prize,
given with each anti vote. At Frenger's
Hotel, the Third precinct in tho Nineteenth
ward, the ladies got a set back. They were
excluded entirely and resented it hotly. Said
"Don't you believe, they wouldn't lot us
come near the polling place and even locked
the pump up so we could not get any water.
Onr men were jnst sweltering for something to
drink and we had to carry water in buckets for
Mr. Frenger was afterward seen, and said
he locked the pump at 9 o'clock because he
didn't want so much water carried awav, but
in the afternoon unlocked it again. The ladies
were indignant to the extreme, and one young
lady said: "Our men shall have water if we
have to drill a well right here in the street;
we mean business, and they don't want to stop
the flow of the Lord's beverage or there will be
A LITEBABY GAME.
The ladies looked askance at the flaming pos
ters of the Antis, with 'the quotations from
Lincoln on, and at last one was delegated to go
home and look for some quotation to counter
act it and soon returned with the following,
which was immediately banded to a printer
and a lot of posters struck off:
: "It is hard to die and not leave the world i
any better for one's little life in it"
Abraham Lincoln. :
As the reporter approached the door in the
Wilson block leading to the W. C. T. U. head
quarters, about 5 o'clock, a lady met him on the
stairs with the anxious query, "How is the vot
ing going in the city t" After giving bis meager
knowledge, be asked about the East End, and
she laid: ''We have received returns from
ertrr precinct in the East End each half hour,
and in all the precincts except at Hvndman's,
the First in the Twentieth ward, and Frenger's,
the Third in the Nineteenth ward, the voting is
3 to 1 in favor of the amendment In the Other
it is quite the reverse, I think.
WOMEN AND SINGING CHILDBEN.
Going up the stairs tho reporter uncon
sciously lifted bis bat as be peeped In the door
and saw about 50 ladies kneeling in fervent
prayer for the cause of prohibition. Among
the number were many young ladies, well
known in the East End and the city. The
ladies soon arose and started off to the polls
again or to their several homes for refresh
ments, to resnme the fight again after supper.
At all the other precincts, except at Frenger's,
the ladies were not interfered with and were
treated with respect A liquor man said they
prevented bantering at the polls and were
some good, at least The polling places were
usually quiet and the strife for votes a still
In the afternoon Mr. Elwood, a prominent
prohibition worker, hired a band and fixed up
a wagon with placards telling the good citizens
to vote for their homes, save their sons from
being drunkards, eta
In another wagon driven through another
portion of the East End, were a number of
children dressed in white blouses and turbans,
One carried a banner on which was Inscribed:
"Vote for Mamma and Me."
The vote cast was unusually large at all of
the precincts. At tho Oakland scboolnouse 61
votes were cast by 8 o'clock, where 16 to 18 has
been tho number cast usually at other elections.
THE DEY HEAPqUABTEBS.
Prohibitionists Take Their Medicine With
bmlllns; Faces They Cnn't Account
for the Wholesale Slaughter.
Chairman Joseph D. Weeks sat behind a
table perspiring freely, early last evening, in
the hot and stuffy prohibition bead
quarters, waiting for the returns. At
his elbow sat Secretary Leslie, who.
conducted the work in Allegheny
county. Within reach of Mr. Weeks' right
arm the telegraph instrument was located, and
just across the room was the telephone, where
a boy stood with an apparatus over bis head
and ears that looked like a baseball mask. The
young fellow was prepared and ready to receive
and deliver all messages. He was glad whenl2
o'clock arrived, and at that hour the headquar
ters were deserted.
The room was comfortably filled with anx
ious ministers with canes. Among the number
were Dr. Norcross and Revs. Miles and Ham
mond. An adjacent room was given up to the
use of the ladies. Mrs. Watson was there and
At no time was there much enthusiam. In
fact there was nothing to onthuse over. The
first returns received, about 8 o'clock, were
from Scottdale, giving a majority of 217 for the
"Good for Scottdale," exclaimed the preach
ers, as they pounded the floor with their canes
"And Scottdale is a pretty tough place, too."
remarked some one In the crowd.
This news was received by the ladies with
cheers and hand clapping.
The telegraph instrument began a steady
click and kept it up for the next few hours.
As fast as the operator conld write the mes
sages they were handed over to Mr. Weeks,
who read tnem aloud. At first he carefully
culled the favorable ones, but as the landslide
from Philadelphia commenced to drop in small
sections, and finally rushed down with the
force of an avalanche, he gave up the fight
and read the returns as they came direct from
tbo wires. Meanwhile the poor deluded ladies
were cheering in the next room.
"No use to fool them any longer," said Mr.
Weeks. "They might as well know the facts
at once and be done with it Read them some
of the telegrams from Berks county and Phila
delphia, and see how they like it"
From that time the
CHEEEINO WAS PAINT
But the majority present were in a good
humor and not at all discouraged. Dr. Ham
mond took bis medicine with such a wry face
that Mr. Leslie laughed outright every time he
looked at him.
"Oh, well," said the latter finally, "we are
beaten, but I am not going to drown myself.
We have made a good fight and lost hut we
will try it again in six years. No use to cry
Mr. Leslie laughed heartily at some of the
big figures against the amendment and so did
Mr. Weeks. Neither gentleman looked down
hearted, and if they had won they couldn't
have felt better, judging from their smiling
About 10 o'clock, J. F. McConnell, Mr. Ran-,
kin, and some of 4 the other faithful came in.
When old Mifflin county came up with a band
some majority for the amendment, Mr. Rankin
patted his right knee, and said he had stumped
nearly every town in tbat county.
"The vote shows good work," yelled the
crowd together, and everybody smiled.
WEEKS WENT HOME.
At 11 o'clock Chairman Weeks was satisfied.
He tied np bis returns and started for borne.
The operator removed the telegraph instru
ment the telephone boy laid aside his head
gear, but a few remained behind to discuss the
figures and the causes of defeat
Before leaving Chairman Weeks said: "We
have suffered a worse defeat than I expected,
and 1 am unable to account for it Ob, no, the
Republican party did not act treacherously.
That is a mistake. Of course a great many
Republicans voted against the amendment
but it is ridiculous to blame the defeat on tho
farty. We will continue the work, certainly,
n six years from now this question will be re
submitted to the people, and I hope with bet
Mr. Weeks' estimates that the prohibition
vote in Allegheny county was about 40 to a
precinct making from 15,000 to 20,000 votes
Secretary Leslie said: '1 account for the
overwhelming defeat by saying that the people
want to test high license first
WILL TEY IT AGAIN.
"The Brooks law was passed as a trick two
years ago. I expect the liquor men will
try to elect their Own men to the
Legislature, and have the law greatly modified.
They will undoubtedly make an effort to return
to a freer license system. I think six years
from now the people will be so disgusted with
high license tbat we will havo no trouble to
pass the amendment"
J. F. McConnell said he knew last Sunday
morning that the jig was up when so many of
the Republican leaders declared themselves
openly against the amendment The leaders
carried numbers of the people with them. Mr.
McConnell blamed the Republican party for
the defeat He thinks they were traitors and
went back of their pledges. He says the party
will elect the State Treasurer this fall, but they
will be defeated next year in the Gubernatorial
DOWN ON THE BEPUBLICANS.
By that time he believes the people will have
analyzed the vote, and will slaughter the Re
publican party for their treachery.
Mr. McConnell regrets now that the question
was waged on a non-partisan basis. The next
amendment will be presented to the people as
a political issue. He is sorry there is no organi
zation left but tho Prohibitionists as a party
will go to work at once to put the temperance
wheels in motion again. ;
"Apathy and indifference did the work,1'
was D. E. Sheridan's opinion of the result
When State Chairman Palmer gave up the
fight and conceded a majority of 91,000 against
tie amendment Mr. Weeks, with a laugh, re
marked tbat Palmer might have taken off tho
one thousand anyhow.
THE STBEET EXCITEMENT.
Rare Scenes of Enthusiasm on Both Sides
Dnlll Ono. Side Had It All-Shouts
That the Bulletins Brought
If anyone doubted the enthusiasm of each
side, and the Interest taken by the general pub
lic in the result of the amendment campaign,
he should have been on Fifth avenue last night
and have seen the surging crowd of Antis and
Pros eagerly watching for the returns. It was
a sight only witnessed heretofore on the
night of a Presidental election, and not alto
gether paralleled by such an event The claims
of big majorities by theAntis, and assurance
that the victory was already won, had led
many to believe that public enthusiasm over
the returns would bo lacking, but such were
overwhelmingly surprised, as shout after shout
early in the evening, and until after midnight,
made Fifth avenue and other sections of the
city ring as the returns were posted on the
Early in the evening the crowd gathered, its
center resting In front of The Dispatch
office, showing the reputation of tbat paper for
the earliest and most reliable news. Stretch
ing up and down the street in either direction,
the crowd ended in small knots, like the tail of
a comet before the other dallies. The Dis
patch was not prepared for Buch a rush, hut
it got there, as it does in all emergencies.
WHEN THEY ALTERNATED.
When the first returns of the city wards
went-up, alternately for and against the amend
ment,, the crowd fairly howled on both sides.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19,
Soon tho Sixth ward sf Allegheny was bulle
tined with a rough picture of a foaming beer
schooner below it and 'was greeted by a yell
from the antis. Next a bulletin with a picture
of a tea-cup and saucer was posted, and the
Prohib yell showed that they were not in the
minority In the crowd.
The crowd good naturedly grasped the
bumor of the pictures in a moment, and the
tail ends, surged in one big mass of over a
thousand people in front of The Dispatch
office, crowding the entrances of the Grand
Opera House and Hams' Theater, and block
ing the street solidly. Other bulletins, accom
panied by mottoes as "Lemonade," "Milk
Shake," "Moxie," "Monongahela Water," a
picture of a whisky barrel, etc., were pasted,
and eagerly grasped by the crowd with alter
nate cheers from both sides. One side was bul
letined as "wets," the other as "drys."
"Five hundred and fifty beer tickets," yelled;
one and the hubbnb tbat followed resembled a
panic in a theater on fire. "Dutcbtown to the
front" yelled another, but was drowned by
"hurrah for spring water," by hundreds of
The crowd was made up of workmen, well
dressed yonng men, staid old lawyers, business
women, and all classes, who either smiled
more often audibly, or scowled, as the bright
light in front of the bulletin board flashed be
fore their gaze the returns from wards, towns,
cities and counties. As the hour grew near
the hour of another day iho interest did not
abate, and the crowd, if anything, only grew,
as it was reinforced by the indoor amusements,
then "let out"
Besides The Dispatch, tho returns were
bulletined by all the other morning papers. On
Wood street, before the office of the Pott, was
another crowd, though vastly smaller than on
Fifth avenue. The enterprise of the two
German papers was not. lost either on their ad
herents. At 10 o'clock over 1,200 people were
in front of the newspaper offices on Fifth ave
nne, and from a rough count tbe eyes of fully
1.000 of the number were turned toward The
Shortlvafter 10 a visit was paid the Western
Union offices, the source of the returns, and a
busy scene was presented. Seventy-five opera
tors were copying the returns or sending tnem
again to from all parts of the Mate. As a bul
letin came in it was ent down to the booking de
partment and 30 or more manifold copies, of it
taken. These were then given to the operators
on different lines and wired to the anxious
crowds at each place. All went off as
smoothly as routine business, In a chat
In regard to the returns Superinten
dent Rowe said: "It has become an
old thing with us. Wearo used to it. We go
tbrongh tbe same thing so often tbat we all
know just what to do, abd do it without any
friction. The managers of the different offices
did not need any instruction beyond a few
words informing them tbat we were going to
take tho returns and wbere the distributing
points were to be. They have all been through
more than one election.''
LIVELY IN ALLEGHENY.
Dutchtown Gets TJp On Its Off Enr and
DIakcs Teetotalers Hop Scenes
That Have No Local Par
allel Water Enough
for a Few.
The election in Allegheny was unusually
lively. The vote polled in most of the districts
was heavier than at the last Presidental elec
tion and tho result was a surprise to the Antis,
and in some cases to tbe amendment adherents.
All tbe votes were counted Inside of an hour,
but the returns came in very slowly. The Pro
hibitionists carried the Second ward by a verv
good majority, but lost all the other wards.
Tbe most remarkable vote was cast in tbe
Third district of the Seventh ward, where
there were 155 votes against and none for the
the amendment In the Ninth district of tbe
Third ward thcro 8 for and 310 against
and in the Tenth district of the same ward the
vote stood 4 for and 311 against These dis
tricts are in the upper end of the city in what
is known as "Dutchtown."
There was more excitement and enthusiasm
in Dutchtown than in any other part of the
city. The Antis bad everything their own
way, and the Prohibitionists soon found that
it was useless to bother with that section of the
city. In tbe morning they went up in buggies
with the posters and tho tickets, bnt the per
sons who owned tho polling places would not
allow them to tack up their signs on the
houses, and they were forced to retire. Fonr
men arrived at a polling place in the Seventh
ward m the morning and
BEGAN TO MAKE PEEPABATIONS
for distributing tickets. The crowd that had
collected hooted at them, and one man brought
out four glasses of beer, which .the Prohibi
tionists 'declined to drink. An old woman then
came out with a bucket of water, and said if
they would, not take beer they must take
water, and threw the contents of the bucket
on them. The men immediately drove off, and
were not seen at those polls all day.
In the afternoon ttro men drove up to the
First district of the'Seventh ward, evidently
intending to leave somo tickets, but changed
their mind before they got out of the buggy.
There was a sign on the vehicle with the words,
"The Saloons must go." A large crowd col
lected at once and began to howl at tbe men.
They saw it was not safe to get out, and drove
away in haste. "Those fellows won't get any
show in our end of town," romarked a by
stander, as the men departed.
Both sides had brass bands in wagons and
every polling place was serenaded during tbe
day. The bands met about noon at the polls of
the Fifth precinct of the Second ward and
both were cheered by the crowd. One wagon
carried a banner with the words: "Prohibition
strikes tbe principles on which the Govern
ment was founded by Abraham Lincoln. Vote
STOPPED BY A PHYSICIAN.
The other had a banner with the words:
'Prohibition. By it no orphans starving; no
widows weeping. By it none wounded in feel
ings." Both bands began to play, when a physician,
who had several patients in the neighborhood,
requested them to stop, and they drove away.
The headquarters of tbe Prohibitionists were
near the Fifth district polling place, and the
women did some very active work. The North
Avenue M. E. Church was open all day. and the
women met there and consulted as to the best
means of bringing out their votes. Carriages
were engaged, and many feeble temperance
men rode to-their voting place and deposited a
ballot tor tbe amendment eomo of them voting
for the last time. A large streamer was hung
on the church, on which was painted: "For God
and Home and Native Land." Also a sign:
Will vou curse your bov bv voting for rum?"
One of the Antis' signs read: "Prohibition
antagonizes the sterling principles of Abraham
Lincoln. Constitutional tinkering leads to an
archy. Vote against it"
Principal McCandless, of the Twelfth ward
school, instructed tho pupils in the morning
that they would be asked to sing temperance
songs at the polls in tbe afternoon.
IT WAS SQUELCHED.
This reached the ears of some of the direc
tors, who promptly issued an order forbidding
it and the songs were not sung.
Mr. E. Wertheimer, who has charge of affairs
for the liquor men in this section of the State,
was at the Allegheny Mayor's office this even
ing and heard the early returns. Ho was not
at all disappointed over the result, but ad
mitted that he was mistaken when he said a
big vote would not be polled. "I have just re
ceived a telegram," said be. "from State head
quarters to the effect that Philadelphia county
will give 100.000 majority against the amend
ment and Berks county about 20,000. My claim
of 100,000 majority in tho State. I find was a
verv low estimate, and I am willing to add
25,000 to It now, and bet money on it This has
been a big victory lor the liquor men, and we
did not do a great deal of work either. At any
rate we did not work as bard as the other side.
We are perfectly satisfied with tbe result"
THE SECOND AMENDMENT".
Olany Intelligent Persons Ignorant That it
Was Before the People.
One of the most remarkable features of the
day was the Ignorance expressed by many
voters concerning the suffrage amendment.
Many of the most intelligent voters in the city,
persons tbat ono would imagine certainly
would keep posted on current events, and
especially on a subject so grave and important
as an amendment to the Constitution of the
State, didn't even know tbat it was to be voted
for. When they went to the polls they didn't
know how to vote, because they didn't
know the provisions of the amendment
Hundreds and even thousands of votes were
cast against it by persons who knew nothing
about It There was an abundance of tickets
to be found at all the polls "Against the Suff
rage Amendment" bnt it was hard to find one
for it at all places, and in some precincts there
were no tickets at all markeu'For the Suff
rage Amendment" Then in some wards,
notably the Fifth ward, every voter who came
up was urged to voto against the suffrage
amendment, on the plea that it ttas bnly a
scheme of tho Prohibitionists to carry the elec
tion the next time they tried it. ft was also
claimed that the change from 60 days to 30
days' residence in a precinct would give oppor
tunity for colonization.
It took a great deal of talk with some voters
to explain to them what the suffrage amend
ment meant but as they knew little about it
even 'then, many persons voted against it
simply because tbey couldn't understand It
Members of neither tbe Republican or Demo
cratic party could scarcely be convinced that
the leaders of both tbe great parties bad agreed
that the suffrage amendment should pass.
" THE BOTTLE MAEBS.
'They Yoted Almost Solidly Against the
Amendment Information at Their
General Headqanrters They
Believed They Were Vot
ing for the Interests
It is safe to say that the American Flint Glass
Workers voted for the defeat of the amend
ment Those in charge at tbe offices of the
order in Hamilton, Lemon, Arnold and Com
pany's building stated yesterday that from an
exchange of views with a large number of "the
Flints," it was pretty certain that fully 98 per
cent of tho members of the order voted solidly
with the "antis." There are between 1,800 and
2,000 members in Allegheny county and 6,000 in
Pennsylvania, which would make the gain to
the antis ot no small amount
"Certainly, they voted against the amend
ment," said one. "It was to their Interest to
do so, and they all realize it. No action was
taken by the order, as a body, as you probably
know. It was not necessary, and It was under
stood that every man knew which way he
wanted to vote, and what was to his interest
Besides it was not tbe place ot the order to
dictate. 1 am a temperance man myself,
but I just cast my voto against the
amendment, not against temperance, be
cause prohibition is not temperance
and I have no right to say that another man
shall be temperate. Tbe same argument ap
plies to tbe question in all its phases. You will
nnd that there are as many in the order that
are temperate in principle as are not, and as
many more that drink, but still would vote for
temperance, but they consider the prohibition
amendment against their interests, and not a
consistent temperance movement auu uuucu
to vote it down."
PLACARDS FOE VOTERS.
Appeals Slack Up nt the Polls Not so
Nnmerons as Expected.
The posters in the shape of appeals to t'no
voters wera not so numerous yesterday at tho
polls as a person would have been led to sup
pose they would be m view of the many differ
ent kinds that were printed by both parties.
At most of the polling places in Pittsburg
tbcre was only one for each side. The one
that was the favorite of the anti-amendment
people was headed in big type, in blue ink,
"Vote Against Prohibition," and simply con
tained extracts from tho writings of Abraham
Lincoln and John Qulncy Adams. The ex
tract signed "Abraham Lincoln" said tbat prif
bibitinn is a failure and always will be. That
from John Qmncy Adams set forth that Indi
vidual responsibility was the safety of the re
public, and that personal liberty must be care
The favorite prohibition poster was headed,
"Warning to Worklngmen," and in big letters
said, "The People Are on a Strike Against the
Monopoly of tbe LlquorTrafflc," and in smaller
type urged workingmen to vote for the amend
ment and keep their money for themselves
and their families instead of giving it to enrich
The big red-ink poster. "Liquor Men Own
Defeat" was not po-ted at any of the polls in
the city, the Prohibitionists having concluded
that Mr. Walnwright's appeal to all oppo
nents of the amendment to turn out and vote
might work both ways.
In opposition to the bands of singing children
who were sent around by the amendment peo
ple the anti-amendment people had out several
wagons containing small sections of brass
bands. These wagons bad big placards on the
side, saying "Vote Against Prohibition."
The Constitutional Amendment Is Defeated
With 245 Votes to Spare.
In the history of temperance and elections
yesterday was a red letter day in McKeesport,
and, although the amendment was defeated, it
can't be attributed to the temperance vote being
small or to the failure of the amendment peo
ple to carry on a continual and a very effective
campaign from the start to tbe finish, and tbey
worked for the cause as it was never before
worked for in this city.
It was expected tbat the poll would be small.
but on the contrary over two-thirds ot the usual
vote of tho city was polled, and the fight, to
say the least, was a desperate one, and will
long be remembered. At each polling place
delegations of temperance workers held forth,
assisted by the ministers of the city, who would
not only talk to the voters, but
tried to convert the workers of
the anti-amendment also. Four hundred
girls attired in white, with sashes of National
colors, carrying the flag of the Nation com
posed a campaign choir of tbe amendment peo-.
pie, and, led by a band, it passed from one poll
ing place to the other during the day rendering
The city gave a majority of 215 for whisky.
The majority for whisky in the First ward was
161. and in the Third ward 147. The big Second
ward gave a majority of 63 for tho amendment
which being deducted from the two wards
above mentioned gives tho total whisky ma
jority of 215 In the city, or about 800 less than
tbe antl people expected.
The total vote polled in the city was 2.201. Tho
tnt.il temnerance vote is 076. The nrobibition
vote in tbe city never was over 200 before. If
is a big gain lor the temperance people, wno
expected 400 majority in the Second ward to
carry the city with.
THE REASON WHY.
Ed. Murphr Says Money nnd IgnornnceBent
Ed Mnrphy, the young temperance apostle,
was asked by a Dispatch reporter for his
opinion at 10 o'clock last night just as he was
preparing to go home from the Prohibs' head
quarters. "I will give it very few words," said he. "We
are badly beaten in this fight but the temper
ance cause is not weakened in the least no, it
has been strengthened. Tbe general senti
ment will be mnch stronger for tbe cause here
after. Yon can attribute our defeat to tbe
votes of the large cities Philadelphia and
Pittsburg which were controlled by means of
"machine' business and an immense amount
The suburban districts were in most cases for
the amendment but tbe largo vote of tbe cities
counterbalanced their effect. In the city there
is an element composed of uneducated foreign
ers and unprincipled men who think more of
money than they do of morality. That's the
reason the antis won. Don't you think, though,
tbat we are through with this fight We gave
them a good scare this time, and had it not
been for tbe liquor men's liberal outlay of
shekels we would have been victorious."
Mr. Murphy estimated that the majority
against the amendment would bo 60,000 in the
State, judging alone from Allegheny county.
WHAT C. L. MAGEE, ESQ., SAIS.
The Political Leader Thinks Those Party
Pushers Learned a Lesson.
Mr. C. L. Magee was rather sententious in his
utterances, and seemed to think but little com
ment was necessary, but spoke of the pro
hibition movement as ill-advised from the start
He said tbe result was not unexpected, and
that the issue was started wrongly in the con
vention of 18S6 a convention that bad no other
business to do than to nominatb state officers.
He then took tho ground that there was no
more reason to expect reform from prohibition
in Pennsylvania than in any other State where
there had been abundance of blossom, but only
small return of fruit and that blasted.
Mr. Magee seemed to thing tbat many men.
really of temperanco proclivities, had voted
against the amendment on conviction that it
would prove ineffective.
Mr. Magee also seemed to think tho matter
had, at 1120 o'clock, resolved itselt into a ques
tion of bigmajonty,and was directing his efforts
in the way of figures on Allegheny county.
The gentleman's views seemed to squint
rather towaid local option than to general pro
hibition, and he spoke of the question being
bandied by legislative districts in preference to
the manner in which it was launched.
THE EX-C0DNTI CHAIRMAN.
As a Chieftain of tho Democracy, Ho Says
Prayer Won't Work.
William J. Brennen, Esq., was jubilant; so
much so that he set up the soda water for the
crowd. When asked what he thought brought
it about (it had been decided at tbat hour tbat
the State had gone wet), he said:
"The temperance people tried to pray it
through, and prayer won't work. The liquor
men had organization, and as Napoleon said
of artillery, so I think In politics. Providence
is on the side of organization and bard work.
"The whole tenor ot liquor legislation has
been wrong. Liquor should be treated as any
other commodity is. Tbat is the way to de
crease the abuse of it
"I hoped the suffrage amendment would win
also. My experience has been that the poor
vote more intelligently than the rich, and aro
fully as honest If not more so; mors so. I
