Boulanger is elected by a plurality of 2.200

Thiebaud, his former apostle and friend,

majority to elect. It is not expected that

Paeis, September 22. Copyright.
Paris has been in a turmoil to-day, such as
only Paris, excited, can furnish. The city
is emblazoned throughout with posters;
every statue, every column, every monu
ment, every wall is covered with circulars
that vie with each other in brilliancy of
color and gaudiness of lettering; green, yel
low, blue, red, pink, scarlet are the favorite
colors. The base of the Opera House, as
high up as posters can reach, is a sight that
makes the rainbow monotonous.
The Arc de Triomphe is a gaudy sym
phony in bright colors. For ten feet from
tbe ground the walls of the churches are
COVEEED -Wlin BILLS.
The facades of theaters, of public build
ings, of hotels, of railroad stations, are five
and ten thicknesses deep with posters in all
color of the spectrum, proclaiming the
names and virtues of the various candi
dates. The Boulangists played one of their spec
tacular trump cards last night "When day
light broke upon Paris, the entire city was
covered with brilliant posters, picturing
General Boulanger upon the celebrated
black charger, charging upon a whole army
and covered with core and glory, while be
low and behind ran:
If you wishtovoto for tho slaughterers of
the Parisians, for the devourers of the soldiers
ol the Commune, give your vote to the candi
date ot the Government.
The Voice of the National Paktt.
made the most noise.
The Boulangists, at sight of this pic
ture, went mad with enthusiasm, and, in
deed, it was the party of the brave General
that made the most noise all day. In Mont
martre, where the popular hero stood for
election, and in Belleville, where his fellow
exile, Bochefort, was a candidate, regiments
of horse and foot stood guard from the time
the polls opened until they closed, and
sternly checked all demonstrations that
seemed to tend toward an outbreak.
On the boulevards there was much noise
and a little disorder. The confusion
was much heightened by the presence in the
city of so many strangers. Around every
polling place the crowd of Frenchmen was
HTODBEDS OF CUEIOTJS AMEEICANS,
Englishmen, Germans, Austrians, Ital
ians and representatives ot perhaps every
country and clime of the globe. At the
doors of the afes and shops little groups
gathered and stormed and chattered with
much gesticulation and enthusiasm.
The number of fights that did not occur
might have been numbered by thousands.
Every few squares along the boulevards
men of opposite political views were seem
ingly on the verge of personal combat, but
though a Parisian may shake his fist in his
opponent's face, wave his finger before his
opponent's nose within a hair's breadth of
that organ, and call him pig and beast until
he is black in the face, he seldom comes to
blows, because the French law in the matter
of corporal violence is severe and inflexible.
PANDEMONIUM BREAKS LOOSE.
"When the polls closed at 6 o'clock there
was comparative quiet, while Paris, which
does not forget its dinner in any circum
stances, went home to regale itself. But
two hours later all the population was in
the streets. "When the returns began to
come in, and it was announced that Bou
langer and Bochefort had been elected,
there was pandemonium. Twenty thousand
people had gathered in the Place de
l'Opera, where the Presse, the leading
xiomangisi organ, was issuing Bulletins,
and these went mad with enthusiasm.
"Vive Bouiangerl" "Vive Boulaneer!"
roared every throat. Hats went up in the
air. A few who dared to hiss were set upon
and beaten, and finally the "Boulanger
March" was started by thousands of noisy
voices, and the great mob, fired by music,
started up the thoroughfare.
DISPERSED BY SOLDIERY.
At this moment down the avenue des
Caputines came a regiment of the mounted
Ecpublican guaid, several hundred strong,
followed by a force of infantry. With the
most brutal violence men, women and chil
dren were driven into the side streets, and
the Place de l'Opera and the Boulevard des
Italiens were occupied by the military. Up
where the crowd had gathered in the Rue de
4me Septembref they dispersed it as far as
the Bourse, and took possession of that
thoroughfare, as well. It was evident from
these measures that the Government was
prepared to take the sternest course for the
preservation of order, and when the rumor
reached the people in the streets that the
votes of Boulanger, Bochefort and Dillon
would not be counted, there was an ominous
murmur throughout. However, the mili
tary was in possession ot every vantage
point, and even if there had been any lead
ers an outbreak would have been impossible.

SPECIAL TELEOEAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Watebtown, N. T., September 22.
Anna McKee, one of the prettiest young
ladies of Cape Vincent, was employed as
dressmaker in Bed path's establishment
in Hew York. A few weeks ago
she came up trom New York to visit
friends. "While in Cape Vincent she
stopped at the residence of Emma Ingalls,
a spinster, who thinks she has been cured of
innumerable ills through the medium of
one Mrs. A. J. McConnell, who is chief
among a small band of Christian scientists.
A few days ago Miss McKee was taken
ill with gastritis. Mrs. McConnell and
Miss Ingalls took full charge of her case.
They did not send for a physician, but told
the girl that God would be angry with her
if she distrusted Him to that ex
tent They advised her that if
she kept right on trusting and praying she
would get well.
Miss McKee did not believe in Christian
science, but she was powerless. "When at
last she lay in the most terrible agony the
only comfort or help she got was an exhorta
tion to be faithful and pray.
Three days before Miss McKee's death
Miss Libbie Iselin and Mrs. E. Stala heard
how ill she was, and went to the house.
They were denied admittance, but pushed
the spinster aside and reached
the sick girl's bedside. They sent
immediately for Dr. Mason; but, when the
physician arrived, he was unable to do any
thing to save the girl's life. Miss McKee
died next day. The physician believs that
if he had been called in time he could have
saved her life.

Bepublicans are beginning to wonder if
removals of Democratio officeholders are not
to be more frequent and sweeping when the
administration leaves its summer resorts and
returns to Washington. They are hoping it
will be done, at any rate.
tSFECIAI. TELEOKAM TO TUB DISPATCH. 1
Washington, September 22. Now
that the season of fashionable summering is
nearly over, and the President nnd the last
ot the truant Cabinet officers are soon to
return to the work of their offices, there is a
general curiosity as to whether there will be
any livelier movement against Democrats in
office than marked the first months of the
administration. When all the stalwart
Ecpublicaus were disappointed at the lack
of energy displayed in turning the Demo
crats out, the more conservative excused the
administration by saying that it was im
possible to go faster on account of the
necessity of having a certain 'proportion of
experienced persons always in the service,
and also that delays were occasioned by the
the difficulty of deciding between applicants
where the pressure for one was almost as
influential as for another.
too pew eemovals.
During the absences of the President and
Cabinet, which have been unprecedented in
frequency and duration or the first year of
an administration, the supplanting of
obnoxious Democrats has been virtually sus
pended, and this large class of civil service
employes has assumed a new complexion of
assurance, and many of them openly boast
that they dare not be removed, on account
of the effect it would have upon the Mug
wump element. There is no denying that
the attitude of the administration warrants
them in this assumption.
Stalwart Bepublicans have been thor
oughly disgusted by the inaction, while
Democrats who denounced Cleveland tor a
similar policy are tremendously amused by
the Bepublican family quarrel. Members
of Congress who exerted themselves to bring
about removals have to a great extent aban
doned their efforts, and the conservative
members of the party are hoping almost
against nope lor some change lor tbe better.
THE GENEBAIi peophecy
Is that the Bepublicans will split on the
very rock against which the Democrats went
to pieces. Of courte, this does not refer to
what is known as the "classified service,"
which comes under the operation of civil
service laws. It refers to the best places of
the department and of tbe service in the
States, in regard to which there is no obsta
cle in the wav of removal. Manv of thorn
places are filled by Democrats whose records'
make them peculiarly objectionable from a
party standpoint, others by those who are
personally very offensive, and others still by
ex-Confederates who have never for a mo
ment since their entrance into office ceased
to insult Northern Bepublican employes,
and to sneer at Union solders. If these
peculiarly obnoxious partisans were re
moved, good Bepublicans might possibly
pardon the retention of the others, for a time
at least, but the presence of these peculiarly
offensive ones disgusts every Bepublican,
and the terms in which the heads of depart
ments who have the power to remove them
are mentioned are decidedly uncompli
mentary. TJNEXPLAINABLE INFLUENCE.
The influence which keeps some of them
in office is absolutely beyond explanation.
A conspicuous case is that of Mr. Morton,
Commissioner of Navigation, who enjoys
the snug salary of 53,500 a year. Mr. Mor
ton is from Augusta, Me., and was about to
be given the office ot postmaster of that city
by President Cleveland, when the latter re
ceived a personal request from Hon. James
(J. Blame that Morton be put into another
place. The request was the result of the
scandalous stories circulated during the
campaign of 1884. President Cleveland
acceded to the personal request of Blaine,
but rewarded Morton by placing him at the
head of the Bureau of Navigation. Morton
has been exceedingly offensive, both before
and since the change of administration,
toward persons having official business with
him, and his conduct has been exposed not
only by Bepublican, but by Democratic
newspapers; but for some mysterious reason
he holds his plaoe, and has within the last
few days been heard to boast that all the in
fluence of the gentlemen who have been in
sulted by him, of the press, and of Bepubli
cans, cannot put him out
MANY CASES OP THE KIND.
So it is with many others, and especially
with some of the ex-Confederates, and Re
publicans think they may well be excused
if the v ask what it all means. The tacts
with regard to some of these persons will be
presented squarely to President Harrison
when he returns, "and if he fail to spur bis
heads of departments to remove them the
Stalwarts will give this administration up
as lost to the party.
It is a saying heard every hour of the day
that no important removals have been
made in the departments except to give
place to friends of-the President or members
of the Cabinet, or to lieutenants of Con
gressional favorites, but this is decidedly an
exaggeration; the appointments made have
been excellent. If Bepublicans have any
reason to find fault it is because they are

caught Chalkley Le Coney with the bloody
knife in his hand jnst after he had killed
his pretty niece Annie, in their little house
on the Colestown road, near Merchant

of LeConey, who all along have believed
him innocent and have said that he would
soon be released, now admit that he has
before him a hard fight for his life. They
admit that Murray's confession, corroborated
as it is at many points bv evidence gathered
by Pnblio Prosecutor Jenkins and his de
tectives, makes the case .very serious for
LeConey, who. shows remarkable nerve in
his trying situation.

tEPECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
New Yoke, September 22. In all the
Catholic churches of the Brooklyn diocese
the pastoral letter of Bishop Loughlin on
the erection of a monument to Bruno in
Borne was read to-day, and, in accordance
with the instructions of the Bishop, a
triduum was begun to-night Bishop
Loughlin's pastoral is as follows:'
It is our duty to attend to the allocution
of the Holy Father, delivered in consistory
on the 30th of June of last year. It refers
to tbe sad condition of the Holy Father
brought about by the unscrupulous rapacity,
the contempt for religion, reason and justice
of wicked men. A continued series of out
rages has been offered to the Sovereign Pon
tiff. He has been publicly robbedjsf the
territory which he governed for 1,000 years
for the benefit of the Church throughout the
world. Laws of a most iniquitous kind
have been enacted, tho chief object of which
is to interfere with the exercise of his au
thority in the temporal and spiritual order,
and consequently with the Church. Thus
we need not be surprised that Bruno, an
apostate monk and an atheist, should be
selected by these same men as the object to
be Iinded and honored for his enmity to the
Holy See and to Christianity. By their
arts they show what manner of men they are.
As the question is not only of the Sover
eign Pontiff, but also of the Church, when
he is assailed we feel that the Church
throughout the world is assailed, and that
with one mind and one heart we should
abhor and detest the acts of those who wonld
insult him, who would deprive him of his
independence and his freedom in the exer
cise of his authority in the temporal and
spiritual order. In consideration of these

the saloon from the rear. Gilligan
jumped over a fence in the rear
of the saloon, and was set upon
by a 150-pound Newfoundland dog, which
seized him by the arm and, before he could
be loosened from his hold, had, torn the
flesh from the bones.
Gilligan was taken to the hospital, and it
is feared that amputation will be necessary.

A patent medicine vender has fonnd a

ISFKCIAI. TELEGBAU TO Till DISPATCn.l
Philadelphia, September 22.r-"Green
goods" in medicine is the latest scheme
worked by confidence men in this city.
During the past week or two, thousands of
packages of a new remedy have been dis
tributed among the residents of the out
skirts of the city and of the surrounding
towns. "Mexican Bueno Medicina, the
great malaria and liver and kidney remedy
and blood purifier" is the title of the new
discovery. The price is $1 "per bottle."
The new remedy is incased in a solid
looking package of the standard cubic di
mensiops of the ordinary high-priced patent
medicines that are put up inqnart bottles
and encased in stiff1 pasteboard boxes. A
thick, closely-fitting and carefully pasted
paper of flaring red covers the package and
gives in bold, black type, the virtues of the
IN EEGDTiATION style.
The face of the package, giving the title
of the cure-all, is ornamented with a novel
picture of an Indian camp, in whichthe
medicine man, preparing his mysterious
remedies in a boiling pot at the door of his
tent, is a conspicuous feature. On the
reverse side is a list of the afflictions for
which the medicine is a sure cure. Almost
the entire length of the package is ocenpied
by this formidable list, which includes every
known ill to which human nature is ex
posed, except impecuniosity.
The list is surmounted by the announce
ment that Bueno Medicina is used by Mexi
can miners, cattle men and Indians, as the
"best known remedy for all complaints, and
is followed by this announcement:
WHAT IT IS NOT MADE OF.
Manufactured by the Montezuma Indians, of
roots, barks, herbs, gums, seeds and berries.
Address, Db. D. M. Lindsay,
Elm House, Bridgeport, Conn.
It requires some time to unwrap the
tightly pasted paper cover and the inner
pasteboard box. This done the purchaser
discovers the most harmless substance ever
inclosed in a patent medicine wrapper. It
is a plain, carefully sawed soft pine wood
block, which gives the remedy the standard
weight of about two pounds.
Dr. D. M. Lindsay, who has invented and
introduced this extraordinary medicine, is
a well-known figure in this city. His home
is at 307 Bowery, New Xork City. He is a
tall, slender man, 45 or 80 years old, with
long, dark, curly hair, a black mustache
and a florid, weather-beaten face. Dressed
in a costume that is an imitation of the garb
of a Mexican ranchero, he has been one of
-themost.conspicuons promenadera of Chest
nut street daring the past two weeks. TJpon
his arrival here he registered at Green's,
and advertised for "agents to sell the best
special medicine in the world."
ONLT MEN OP OBIT -WANTED.
Lindsav had not been here a week before
he started more than 100 men, armed with
his pine wood Bueno Medicina, on a tour of
Pennsylvania towns. He selected only such
men as were as full of grit as a grindstone,
and with his plausible address he found
little difficulty in convincing them of the
gullibility of mankind and of the correct
ness of Sam Patch's theory that somethings
can be done as well as others. He made his
headquarters at the office of a well-known
patent medicine dealer on Ninth street.
His agents are now infesting the villages of
Montgomery, Bucks, Chester and Delaware
counties. Even the inhabitants of suburban
towns have been victimized.
Dr. Lindsay was generous with his
agents. He allowed them 75 per cent profit.
He took a vigorous hand in the work him
self, and he reaped a rich harvest His
methods are not as original as his goods.
A DECOY BOTTLE,
containing, among other ingredients, enough
bad whisky to make the mixture seductive,
has served to plaster country druggists with
the bogus medicine. Another plan of tbe
doctor and his agents is to drive into the
principal thoroughfares of villages and
hamlets, discourse upon the valuable prop
erties of the medicine to the crowds that
always collect about such specialists, ad
minister free doses from the decoy bottle,
and make a few sales to cappers whom they
have distributed in the audience.
In Schwenksville, Ambler, Ft. Washing
ton, Landsdale and other towns on tbe
Perkiomcnand Bethlehem branches of the
Beading Bailroad, which have been flooded
during the Dist week with the pine goods,
Dr. Lindsay's presence is now anxiously
desired. Mrs. Mary Hunslinger, who lives
at Line Lexington, in Montgomory connty,
has had a warrant issued for the doctor's
arrest, and detectives in this city are now
AWAITING HIS APPEABANCE.
Mrs. Hunslinger says that Dr. Lindsay
was at Line Lexington for two days, and
that she bought a box of his Bueno Medi
cina to keep in the house for emergencies.
She had snch confidence in the doctor that
she went to him to have a tooth pulled.
After he had fracturpdher jaw sheexamined

A letter received from the Doctor by the
medicine dealer on Ninth street, dated at
Boundbrook, states that he is working his
way back to his home in the Bowery, where
he intends to rest for awhile and supply
himself with another load of his Mexican
remedy before making another excursion

Bogers, entered the saloon through the side
door and called for. drinks. Becker, after
serving the drinks, asked Conway if he had
made a certain statement to Mrs. Becker re
garding him. Conway worked on South
Beach and Becker kept a saloon on the
beach. Becker's wife asked Conway lately
if her husband was neglecting his business
at the beach. Conway told her that Becker
was drinking too much for his own goodV
Becker's question referred to this matter.
Conway admitted that he had told Mrs.
Becker that Mr. Becker was drinking too
much. After this Becker took up a re
volver, and, it is said, deliberately fired at
Conway, who was standing only a few feet
away. The bullet struck Conway in the
head, and lodged at the base of the brain,
Conway fell to the floor. He was assisted
to a chair by Bogers, but he immediately
became unconscious. Becker remained be
hind the bar, Conway was taken to tbe
Smith iafirmary nearby. The attending
physicians say he cannot recover,as the ball
injured the spinal cord. His ante-mortem
statement was taken by Coroner Wood.
Conway told the Coroner that Becker had
shot him down without any provocation.
Becker was arrested. Bogers was bound
over as a witness under $1,000 bail. Mrs.
Becker said to-day that tbe business be
longed to her, it having been left to her by
her first husband. They had some quarrels,
which finally resulted in his leaving her.
When he returned she gave him money to
start a saloon on South Beach. He did not
make proper returns, and she concluded
that he was neglecting the business. She
learned from a number of persons, includ
ing Conway, that her husband was drinking
heavily and leaving the business to look
ont for itself. When she learned this she
upbraided him. Becker flew into a rage
and said that Conway had been lying about
him, and that he would get even. Becker
expressed regret for what he had done, and
said he hoped Conway would recover.

Foreman, a boy who lives near the head of

mine known by early settlers as the "Maria

this Indian woman used to go away and in
course of a fewj days would return with
large amounts of ore, which she would assay
herself at the mine.
Where the mine was located has always
been a mystery, and even to-day some of the
old Indians around Monterey tell about the
lost mine which old Maria Boman had. The
mine is located near the head of Carmel
river, and was found by A. Foreman while
deer hunting. He also fonnd an old furn

The news has created great excitement
here and all parties are making preparations
to go to the mine. If the story is correct, it
will be a great thing for Monterey. That
the mine was located near Monterey, was a
known fact; but no 'one, not even the good
old fathers of the mission, could even get the
old Indian woman to reveal its where

the mine. The party who brought the news
also brought a piece of the rock, iwhch,

flint, translucent and capable of taking on a
brilliant luster. It varies in color accord

a bright red to a beautilul azure blue.
While in the fluid form it can be used
for coating anything having a stone or
