A YICTOBY FOR FOEAKER
Confidently Claimed, While the De

THE LEGISLATURE IS IN DOUBT,
Keeping Many Senatorial Candidates Upon

1XORJIOUS MEETINGS AT CINCINNATI
The excitement in Ohio increases as the
fiercest campaign in recent Tears sears its
close. Chairman Conger claims Foraker's
election with from 17,000 to 20,000 votes to
spare. Chairman Neal says that Camp
bell's victory is sure, but declines to give
figures in detail, as it -would expose his
hand. The legislative situation is mixed,
with chances slightly in favor of Kepubli
cans. Both parties had immense meetings
at Cincinnati last niht, the respective can
didates being present.
irROM A EXACT CORKKSrONDK-ftT.
Columbus, O., Kovemher 2. Governor
foraker's re-entrance into the campaign
has livened things np very considerably on
his side, while the Democracy seem
cheerfully confident, and make big claims,
As matters stand to-nighUhe virtual closing
of the campaign assures Foraker's election,
with, however, a proviso or two. It is now
certain that both Foraker and Campbell
will run behind their tickets very consider
ably. In Hamilton county and Franklin coun
ty (Columbus) the scratching of Foraker will
certainly amount to between 3,000 and 4,000
votes. Should 1 per cent of the Republican
vote of the State follow these counties For
aker may perfix Dennis. The Democracy
assert that the above will be the case, but it
is subject to grave doubt. Ohio Republi
cans are partisans with such religious per
tinacity that the disaffection which the ris
ing sun of election day is unable to dissipate
will nevertheless stop just short of voting
for a Democrat.
A GOOD ORGANIZATION.
So far as organization is concerned, the
Republicans have decidedly the best of it.
They claim to have an organization by school
districts, and a poll therefrom, and, indeed,
were able to convince your correspondent
that such was the case. On the contrary,
Chairman Neal merely claims a poll eman
ating from county chairmen, and not by
actual contact with the voters. Chairman
Keal only gives figures on two centers
claiming Hamilton by 5,000 and Franklin
Then, too, must be considered the fact that
both sides are amply provided with money.
In the intensity of the frost which followed
Halstead's retraction and was aggravated
by Foraker's illness, the Republicans of the
entire Union have been raking and scrap
ing up fnnds for Foraker's aid. Bushnell,
the wealthy manufacturer oi this city, and
General Alger, of Michigan, have come to
the financial rescne nobly Three out of
five letters in the daily mail of the Repub
lican State Committee contain contribu
tions to the cause. These are offset bv I

PLEKTT OF FUNDS.
Both sides being heeled leaves the ad
vantage again with the Republicans. Not
only so, but while the Republican county
chairmen are using their funds impartially
for the whole ticket, the Democratic county
chairmen are bound down in their use of
money to the specified and understood pur
pose of electing Assemblymen. This gives
Foraker a decided bnlge over Campbell.
Colonel Conger, of the Republican Com
mittee, says that he attaches great import
ance to the fact that the daily mail to head
onarters is largely increasing as election
day approaches. He thinks that this shows
that there is none of the ante-election apathy
which in past campaigns has been a certain
precursor of defeat
Colonel Conger now advances the delib
erate opinion that the vote of next Tuesday
will closely shade 800,000; that of last year
was 840,000, and the shrinkage in'majori'ty
or plurality indicates, on this basis of com
putation, a sweeping Republican victory
with from 17,000 to 20,000 for the State
A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.
Just the antithesis is held by Chairman
Keal. "When seen by The Dispatch cor
respondent he as markedly and signifi
cantly at leisure
"There will be a shrinkage of 100,000 in
the vote," said Mr. Neal. "That means a
vote of 750,000, which indicates a victory
for us with a decisive majority. No, I
would not give an estimate by counties to
my own brother. It would simply expose
my hand. But we will win.
"In regard to the legislative fight there
are 114 members of the Lower House and 36
State Senators to elect. Each side is as
sured of a certain percentage of that num
ber, but the scale will be turned by the
majorities for or against in about 20 doubt
ful districts, and by the nine members and
three State Senators of Hamilton county.
Of these 30 odd members we will assuredly
carry more than half. The majorities range
from 50 to 400, and although so uncomforta
bly close, we have the best of prospects."
THE KEPUBLICAN BOLTER.
General John Beatty, the foremost kicker
against Foraker personally in the State of
Ohio, was seen in his bank to-day.
"Why am I against Foraker?" he re
echoed. "Well, my reasons are manifold.
Foraker's course of administration has been
one or long-continued self-exaltation and
belittling of those in contact with him. In
the appointment of his boards he has sought
to fetter antaionists. placate Democratic
editors "and reward bummers for his own
purposes preferably to the subserviency of
the public or the best elements of the party.
He is a selfish political autocrat, whose only
aim and thought is self. Such a man should
be set aside even at heavy cxnens in !
party upon whose back he rias risen. He is
also a shallow, sputtery politician and a se
riously overrated man."
"Jim Seal says Foraker is the best
campaigner in or out of Ohio," put in the
"Words words, words," ejaculated
General Beatly, impatiently. r,I don't

next Senator, but you could

Foraker went down to .Cincinnati from
Highland county to practice law a few years
after the war he was sneeringly alluded to
as a Highland county "greeney." The
young lawyer had hard sledding for six
months, but was finally retained in a Justice
Court case, his opponent being Ike Jordan.
Foraker dug in and worked a week on the
case, and when it came to trial made an ar
gument so clear an'd so convincing that
Jordan was nettled. He rose and said that
he didn't propose that a Cincinnati lawyer
should be dictated to by a "greeney," a
bumpkin from Highland county. Foraker
made a break for Jordan across some
benches, and Jordan fled downstairs and
up the street. Jordan was nearly in. the
angry bumpkin's clutches when he sought
shelter in a saloon, where he found a knot
of friends. Foraker won his case as well as
putting his opponent to flight.
TIIE FINAL, FIGUEES.
"When The Dispatch correspondent
sought the Republican headquarters at mid
night he found great rejoicing over the
tidings from Foraker's meeting in Cincin
nati. Chairman Conger, when asked for
his opinion oi the situation, said: "The
prospects for an unusually large victory are
becoming more encouraging every moment.
An analysis of the figures now made by the
Democratic State Committee shows that
they concede us the State on their own
figures. A week ago they were claiming
the State by 8,000 plurality, and in their
estimate they claimed 700 plurality in
Hamilton connty, 1,700 in lacking county,
and gave ns only 700 plurality in Cuyahoga
county, 3,100 in Ashtabula connty, 1,500 in
Geauga county, 1,300 in Columbiana
county, 450 in Summit county and 2,000 in
"Now tney Lave reduced there claims on
Hamilton county to 2,000 Democratic plu
rality, and are admitting that they will not
get over 1,300 in Licking county, conceding
us at least 2,500 plurality in Cuyahoga
county, 4,000 in Ashtabula county, 1,300 in
Geauga county, 2.500 in Columbiana county,
3,000 in Trumbull county, 800 in Summit
county. You will readily see that in their
THEY HAVE GIVEN AWAY
their entire plurality as claimed a week
ago, and taking their estimates of the
counties now as compared with their esti
mates a week ago they are themselves con
ceding that our ticket will carry the State
by 11,000 pluralitv. This is certainly a
good showing tor us, even from the figures
of the Democratic State Committee, but
our figures show a much larger plurality
for our ticket. The poll already received
shows that we will carry the State by
nearly double the plurality which the Dem
ocratic State Committee concede to us, and
I can say to you frankly that our prospects
are growing brighter every hour."
Chairman Neal, when seen late to-night,
was jubilant over the Music Hall meeting
in Cincinnati, and said: "Campbell's

Democratic canvass. There is at the pres
ent stage of the game a very well defined
idea that the Legislature will be extremely
close on joint ballot If such should prove

of several national banks being uncorked in
It may be confidently predicted that the
Republicans have the best prospects of
obtaining a working majority of the Leg
islature. To take up their candidates in
order of their strength is manifestly im
possible. But it is unquestionably the fact
that Joseph Benson Foraker comes first for
the reason that he can control two-thirds of
the Republican caucus. Jim Neal. the
Democratic Chairman asserts positively
that Foraker will be a candidate whether
defeated or victorious in the present fight.
Foraker is a far-seeing man. The prospect
of retirement from
OHIO PUBLIC LIFE
At two years from now means that he
would be out of the Rational Convention
swim. He cannot be nominated onre more.
Agamstthis undeniable fact a term ot six
years in the Senate is not without its
allurements. So it may be set down that
Foraker will cither be the nominee or dic
tate the nomination. Precisely here is
where Calico Foster comes in.- Foster is
like Mark Antony a plain, blunt man.
He is one of the best informed and most
practical business men in America.
If he could get up on his feet and give
voice to what he knows he would be a for
midable forensic opponent But he can't
He has the money, and it will be news to
most to know that Foster is now one of the

dard Oil Company.

Senate until he fell foul of the Campbell
forgery and enraged Ohio Republicans by
innocently becoming the ladle, as it were,
which dumped them in the soup. His Sen
atorial toga will never be hung on a cloak

now heaves in sight He has worked val
iantly in this campaign and is in fact, al
ways a willing horse in the Republican
ranks. It will not do to leave him out of
the calculations, for the little Napoleon is
idolized by his party.
If a deadlock came in a caucus McKinley
would be the inevitable outcome of the
situation. No one has had the courage to
plump the question to him as to his candi
dacy for the Senate, but it is said by his
friends that he would vastly prefer the
Senatorship to the Chairmanship of the
Ways and Means Committee, supposing
Reed be elected Speaker.
Ben Butterworth will get some votes from
Hamilton connty if the Republican Assem
blymen get there, but is not considered more
than a remote contingency in the battle.
General A. "W. Jones is also mentioned, and
may get several complimentary votes from
the Western Reserve.
ON THE OTHER SIDE.
The Democratic aspirants are not absent
nor are they bashful. John H. Thomas, the
millionaire' manufacturer of Springfield, has
been scattering money among the Assembly
men themselves, not caring to work through
committee channels. He has also made
speeches, and generally comforted himself
with a most pernicious activity.
Lawrence T, Neal, of Cbiliicotbe, Camp
bell's late opponent at the Dayton conven
tion, has behaved handsomely, thrown him
self into the brunt of the carnage and made
many friends by so doing. He if rich, but
close-fisted. In a caucus in which monev is
not a factor he will have respectable
strength. Senator Payne's friends are going
around saying that papa wants it as a vindi
cation, and will then resign. The talk of
John McLean has been corked np by bis
friends. " "
Chairman Neal said to-day: "I don't
know that Calvin Brice is a candidate, but
I do know that his candidacy would stir up
things. He has never said a word to me
about the Senatorship and I think he would
let me know, if anyone." "Wales.

SPECIAL TELIGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH."
Cincinnati, November 2. By all odds
the most magnificent political meeting Cin
cinnati ever knew was that at Armory Hall
to-night, addressed by Governor Foraker,
C. A. Boutelle, George A. Sheridan, Gen
eral Hale and Mr. Bushnell, of Springfield,
O. Seats for 10,000 people had been pre
pared and standing room for 5,000 more.
At 8 o'clock not a chair remained and every
foot of standing room including the main
aisle was packed and not a club had arrived.
The band played patriotic airs accompanied
by cheers from the audience.
At 8-30 the first clnb appeared. With
great difficulty the main aisle was cleared
for the clubs to march through in review.
For an hour they pushed through as fast as
they could walk, a perfect storm of cheers
following them. Thousands of ladies were
present and enthusiastically waved hand
kerchiefs at the club men. By 9-30 o'clock
the hall was clogged, though thousands
were still clamoring for admission. By this
time eager hundreds had crowded into the
spaces between the rows of chairs, while
nearly 1,000 men had climbed into the
beams and frame work that support the
When Governor Foraker appeared on the
platform the applause was startling. It
rose and swelled until it was almost deafen
ing and continued until the Governor in
despair waved his hands for quiet. Even
then it was many minutes before it became
possible to speak. The Governor's speech
was short, but to the point. He referred to
the armory as one of the works of a "Foraker
board," and said it was fitting that it should
be opened to the public by so wonderlul a
Republican out-pouring. He was followed
by C. A. Boutelle, who in turn gave way to
Mr. Hale. General Sheridan then made
the address of the evening. It captivated
the audience completely. The following
telegram was received:
Washington, D. C, November 2.
Chairman Armory Hall mass meeting, Cincin
nati: To such comrades as I can reach through you
I want to say that I hope they will relax no
effort to keep Joseph B. Foraker for another

fills and adorns. He is no fair weather friend.
He has stood by the soldiers In all seasons, and
they should stand by him now.
ANOTHER BIG DEMONSTRATION.
Mr. Campbell's Music Hall .meeting was
also a splendid affair. It was crowded to
its utmost capacity, fully 7,000 people being
present There was but little music, as the
Republicans had employed every band in
the city. Mr. Campbell was received with
the greatest enthusiasm, and made a speech
that called out irequent applause. It was
much the same speech he has delivered
throughout the State, and was warmly re
ceived. Standing room in every part of the house
wasata.preminm, and the constant shuffling
of feet caused much annoyance; but not
withstanding this the meeting was in every
sense the most successful the Democracy
has held here for many years, and shows the

and in better shape than for many cam

be elected, together with a Democratic
ONE TROUBLESOME QUESTION
Concerning: the Formal Acceptance of the
New Crnlser Charleston,
Washington, November 2. After it
was decided yesterday at the Navy Depart
ment and so announced to formally accept
the cruiser Charleston, built by
the -"Union Iron Works, of San
Francisco, a reconsideration was had
and the subject bas been further discussed
to-day bv the officials. It is said that the
contractors had proposed to the secretary to
deliver the vessel upon the showing made
at the recent trial, withont suffering the
penalty for failure to exhibit the horse
power required bv the contract, or to make
another trial, with certain changes in the
machinery and pitch of the screw.
The refusal of the department to accept
this alternative proposition, it is said, would
relieve the contractors of their liability to
pay the penalty due to lack of contract
horse power, and it was to determine this
question, if possible, that to-day's confer
ence was held. As a result of it, a telegram
was sent to the contractors which Secretary
Tracy said he believed would result in the
acceptance of the Charleston, but its terms
were not made public.

Washington, November 2. Patrick
Egan, Minister to Chili, has notified the
State Department that the authorities of
Chili have, at his solicitation, pardoned
John Welby Lindsay Armstrong, a citizen
of Maine, convicted in the Chilian courts of
homicide eight years ago and sentenced to

Minister Egan says that Armstrong was
mate of a vessel on which while she was in
the harbor at Valparaiso, a fight occurred
among the sailors. Armstrong shot one of
the men, but pleaded that he did it in self
defense. However, he was convicted and
sentenced as stated. Under the circum

the time of the commission of the homicide
Armstrong had borne an unblemished repu

Judge Lewis, who has taken upon him
self the job of exterminating Wils. Howard
and his gang, the terrors of Harlan county,
Ky., is called the Prince of the Mountains.
He has so far killed seven men and wounded
17 others, while his own men have not even
been scratched. Details of the greatest bat
tle, that of last Tuesday, have just been re
ceived. SPECIAL TXLZGBAX TO TUB DISPATCH.1
Louisville, November 2. Fall con
firmation of the reported deadly battle last
Tuesday morning between Judge Lewis'
party and the Howard faction ot Harlan
county, was received here to-day. Six of
the Howard men were killed instantly and
11 wounded, while not a man of the Lewis
force was hurt. '
Judge Lewis is in command of what is
called the law and order party, composed of
the best people of the county, while all the
outlaws have enlisted under the, banner of
"Wils. Howard. The Turners, who original
ly were in opposition to the Howards, have
been nearly completely wiped out, and now
the people are endeavoring to secure the de
struction of the Howards.
Judge Lewis and his men, with Harlan
Court House as the base of their operations,
had been for two weeks making frequent
excursions into the wilderness surrounding,
in search of the Howards. Last week, with
a large party, he inspected the camp of the
Howards and their friends, the Jennings,
in the mountains, but concluded that it
too stbong to attack.
He then withdrew without any hostilities,
and returned to Harlan Court House. There
he secured reinforcements and more arms.
He thought he was then strong enough to
attack Wils. Howard and his party, and
started on a second expedition.
When Judge Lewis left Harlan Court
House he had under his command 65 de
termined men, thoroughly familiar with the
mountains and resolved to kill. Each car
ried a Winchester repeating rifle and a Colt
or- Smith & Wesson revolver, sometimes
both. He marched first to Briarfield Gap,
in the Cumberland mountains, 23 miles
distant from Harlan Court House. His
journey occupied two days. Hence they
descended the Cumberland Mountain into
Lee county, Ya., then they turned and
marched up the valley to Sulphur Spring,
which is just over the mountain from Mar
Sulphnr Spring is the seat of the largest
moonshine distillery in the mountains. An
old man named Longford is
THE HEAD AND KINO
of the mountaineers of that section. How
ard and his friends had been in the habit of
visiting the distillery, bnying liquor, and
having a caronsal there. Judge Lewis
learned that the Howards were in the
vicinity of the distillery, and he determined
to bring on a conflict with them.
Howard bad many friends in that section,
and they warned him and his men of Judge
Lewis' approach. The Howards were col
lected in the mountains, not far from the
distillery. They were frightened by the
strength of Judge Lewis' force and wished
to get hack into Kentucky, but the road
over the mountains was held by Judge
Lewis, and their return was cut off..
Judge Lewis decided to attempt the
surprise of the Howard band in their en
trenchment. Neither he nor his men were
familiar with the country, and for some
time tney were puzzled how to reach the
Howards. Three of his men, while out
scouting, captured Jack Sergeant, a
Howard partisan. He was taken before
Judge Lewis, into a camp full of armed
men. The Jndge offered him his ultimate
release if he would pilot them to the
Howard entrenchment Sergeant refused.
He was then
THBEATENED WITH DEATH.
He refused again, and they began to make
preparations for the execution. Sergeant
then yielded and offered to gnide them. He
was told that if he led them into an ambush
he would be instantly killed.
With Sergeant at their head, the party
ascended the mountain to Pocket Gap. This
was last Tuesday morning. Hence they
cautiously made the descent Having gone
three miles they met a mountaineer. He
informed them that Howard and his men
were a short distance away, coming in their
direction. An ambush was planned.
for in the mountains any kind of fighting is
considered legitimate. Leaving the path,
Judge Lewis and liU men passed 75 yards
to the right, until they came to a cave in
the side of the mountain. In the mouth ot
this cave they concealed themselves. Ser
geant and the mountaineer were taken with
them and kept under guard. The path was
in full view and easy rifle shot. There
they awaited the coming of the.Howards.
TWO DEADLY VOLLEYS.
In about 15 minutesHoward and 25 or 30
men came in fnll view. Half of Lewis'
men fired upon them, and a few moments
later the other half sent in a volley. Six of
Howard's men were killed, th'cir dead
bodies being left in the path. Eleven were
wounded, as was afterward learned from
people of the neighborhood by the Lewis
party, but it is not known whether any of
the wounded have since died. The names
of the killed and wounded have notyetbeen
As soon as the two volleys were dis
charged the Howard party broke and ran
into the woods. Neither Wils. Howard nor
his lieutenant, Jennings, was hurt. With
the remnant of their men they escaped by
the way of Pocket Gay, over the mountains.
Wils. Howard, as soou as he was safe, ral
lied a powerlul party of his friends lrom
both the Virginia and 'Kentucky side.
Twenty men from one place joined him.
He was also reinforced by a number ot
tough characters who are employed in a
new railroad crossing in the mountains. He
also pressed into service 12 or 15 farmers,
threatening to kill them if they would not
join him and fight for him. With nearly
200 men he returned through Pocket gap in
search of Judge Lewis.
JUDGE LEWIS' BETBEAT.
Lewis' scouts warned him of the approach
of a party three times his own in strength,
and he retreated rapidly through the mount
ains toward Harlan Court House. How
ard followed in hot pursuit, and
continued the chase almost to
Harlan Court House, bnt could not
overtake the fleeing regulators, who arrived
at Harlan Court House Friday morning
without having suffered the loss -of a man
killed or wounded. Howard and his men
then withdrew further back into the moun
tains, and nothing has been heard of them
Judge Lewis has proved himself the
prince of the mountains and a bnsy fighter.
Within ten days he has killed seven and
wounded 17 of the. Howards, and not one. of.
his own men has been even
scratched. Ho also has possession of
Harlan Court House, which is too strong
for Howard to attack. It is not .thought
that Howard's men will stick together long,
as they are intoxicated most of the time and
quarrel with each other. As soon as they
are dispersed Judge Lewis will not make
another sortie among them.
The present condition of affairs, in Harlan
is the worst ever known in any county of
the mountains. The fighting is not of the
give-and-take, stand-up sort, bnt is done
nearly entirely from ambush. It is likely
to end in the total extermination of Howard
and his followers. Tbemouutains are filled
with armed men, and other murders are
likely to occur at any time. All carry arms

The opening approaches are ab6ut a mile
long on' both sides of the river and 60 feet
deep at the subterranean entrance. The
sides are now shored up with timbers, but
,will be replaced with masonry before the
tunnel is completed. The ground under the
river is a hard blue clay, and it was thought
at first that the shields could be driven
through this without any digging. With
this idea 12 hydraulic rams were provided,
each capable of exerting a force of 24,000
pounds, but they could not drive the shields
an inch. The plan was then changed,
and a crew of eight men with
picks and axes now digs out a certain
section in the center, the pressure is then
applied, and the shields are driven 18
inches, the clay curling into the' center
space dug out by the men. This clay is
then thrown upon cars and drawn out, and
the men dig out another central section. As
soon as the shield ii advanced, the wall,
consisting of circular sections of iron packed
at the joints with asbestos is pnt in.
A double railway track is also laid as the
work progresses, so that when the two
shields meet, somewhere near the middle of
the river, the tunnel will be completed. In
case water enters from the bottom of the
river, freezing machines are at hand to
freeze it and prevent the inflow.

The Report of Adjutant General Kelton to
the Secretary of War.
"Washington, November 2. The annual
report of Adjutant General Kelton to the
Secretary of War was made public to-day.
It deals largely with the militia question. He
recommends that State encampments be of
longer duration from ten days to two
weeks. Too much attention, hesays, ispaid
to purely automatic precision in the exe
cution of the manual of arms and
other more important exercises are
neglected. All men called out, be
says, should be transported,
subsisted and tented at the expense of the
State and general Government, with a per
diem allowance to officers and enlisted men;
and troops should not be forced to leave
their homes at their own expense, whether
for instrnotion or for actual service. He says
that the presence of regular troops at the
encampments of the National' Guards of

Louisville, November 2. After the
Pan-American delegates had been escorted
around the city the party was taken up the
river by boat to the Glen view stock farm,
where blooded horses were seen grazing the
blue grass of Kentucky. Trotters and
runners were put through their
paces, Proctor being among those
seen. There were present a half
hundred of Louisville belles who enlivened
the scene. Several South American visitors
were given mounts, and raced about the
track with great pleasure to themselves and
the onlookers. Informal speaking took
place, dancing followed, and then a drive
back to the city, after which the delegates
received the public at their hotel.
Governor Buckner, his wife and many
Louisville ladies assisted. At 11 r. m. the
travelers started for Mammoth Cave, where
they will spend Sunday.

The Usefulness of Conanl Lewis at Tan
dem nt an End.
Washington, November 2. Atelegram
was received at tbe State Department.to
day from Consul Lewis asking that he be
allowed to return to Tangiers. The officials
of the department who investigated the
charges brought against Consul Lewis by
Benzufi, the Morocco merchant, and
Eamon Azoqne, the former interpreter at
the Consulate, say that it is extremely diffi
cult to reacn a decision.
Tbe evidence is directly conflicting, being
largely confined to assertions on one hand
by one person and denials on the other by
another person. It is believed, however,
that the officials regard Mr. Lewis' useful
ness at Tangiers as being at an end, and his
resignation from the service maybe the final
outcome of the investigation.

ONE MORE SYNDICATE,
ABig-Engllsh Concern WW Boy AH of the
Chlcaso Grain Elevator eal
Has Already Been Closed.
Chicago, November2. ALondoncable
gram notes the formation in that city of a
company with a capital of $2,500,000, capa
ble of unlimited expansion, for the purpose
of purchasing the grain elevatorsof Chicago.
Mr. W- H, Harper, treasurer of the Chicago
and Pacific Elevator Company, said that
the cablegram was probably well founded.
"It is true," said he,, "that negotiations
for the transfer of Chicago elevator property
to an English syndicate are in progress. We
have been asked two questions by parties
representing this syndicate: 'Will cash buy
your property?' and 'Will you name vour
figures?' To the first we answered: "Xes;
to the second we returned the answer that
we declined to name a price -until advised
of the parties with whom we had were ex
pected to deal. Since then, in fact, yester
day or the day before, our correspondents
gave us references that satisfied us of the
responsibility of the syndicate, and the
negotiations are, therefore, in a shape to
proceed on a definite basis."
"Do yon know if other elevators are in
volved in the negotiations?"
"I know that every elevator company in
Chicago has received a proposal similar to
that made to our company. I do not know
what action any other company has taken."
The Economiit has information that tbe
elevators belonging to Munger, Wheeler &
Co. have been sold for (2,250,000 to the same
English syndicate that has been purchasing
flour mills in Minneapolis and elevators
throughout the Northwest The Hunger
Wheeler system of elevators is the largest
in the city, having a capacity of 6,500,000
bushels, the Armour and Dole houses stand
ing neit in rank, with a capacity of 6,350,
000 bushels. Tbe deal has been closed and
the money will be paid over to the sellers
early next week. The price paid was based
on the business of the past eight years, and,
while no authoritative statement can he made
at this moment, it is nearly certain that the
annual income shown is 8 per cent on the
52,250,000 to be paid. Tbe property bought
consists of eight houses.
A DEEAM THAT BROUGHT. EICIIEE.
A Captain Chance Hie Coarse sutd Cap
tares a Let of Money.
On October 14, 1799, Admiral Sir Henry
Digby, then Captain commanding the
British frigate Alcmene, on a cruise off the
Spanish coast, shaped his course for Cape
St Vincent, and was running to the south
ward, in the latitude of Cape Finitterre.
At 11 o'clock at night Sir Henry rang his
bell to summon the officers of the watch,
tnd ask him, "How are we steering?"
"South south-west sir," was the reply.
"What sort of weather?" "The .same sir,"
as when you left the deck fine, strong
breeze, starlight night." "Are we carry
ing the same sail as at sunset?" "Tea, sir.
Donble-reefed topsail and foresail." Dig
by looked at the officer pf the watch atten
tively for a moment, and then asked him
whether, to his knowledge, anyone had
entered the cabin. No one had.been sera to
The officer of the watch then left the
cabin, and returned to tbe quarter-deck.
At 2 in the morning the Captain's bell was
again rung, the same questions repeated,
and the same answers given. "Most extra
ordinary thing" said the captain. "Every
time I dropped asleep I heard someone
shouting in my ear, 'Digbyf' Digbyl go to
the northward!' I shall certainly do so.
Take another reef in your topsail, haul your
wind, tack every hour till daybreak, and
then call me." The officer of the watch
acted in strict accordance with these strange
orders. "When relieved at 4 A. x. by the
officer of the morning watch that officer ex
pressed great astonishment at finding the
ship on a wind. "What is the meaning of
this?" he exclaimed.
"Meaniugl" said the other. "The cap
tain has gone stark, staring mad, that's all,"
and he told his story, at which they'beth
langhed heartily. There being.no help for
it, these strange orders were strictly
obeyed, and tbe frigate was tacked at 4, at
5, at 6, and at 7 o'clock. She had just come
round for the last time when the man at the
masthead called out: "Large ship oa the

The Great Question That AgUnteS Ike Bfa
New York Snn.l
The dime museum lecturer wore a dress
suit, a swelling shirt front, eyeglasses, and
aa air of wisdom. He stood before apapier-mache-made
Patagpniaa giant, 15 feet tall,
whose body was surmounted by two heads.
Before the lecturer stood, a gaping crowd of,
men and women. The lecturer wiped his
lasses and carefully adjusted them on the.
ridge ot his nose. With a graceful wave
of his Band, he began his talk as follows:
"Ladies and gentlemen, yon bow see be
fore you the only specimen of a two-headed
giant ever on exhibition. He was captured
200 miles inland from, the coast of Patago
nia. Both of his heads were lassoed at one
and the same time by two Western cowboys.
Snch was the strength of the giant, however,
that he broke the leather lariats like straws
with his mighty arms. The giant was sub
dued only when 160 shots irom a Gatling
gun had been poured into his body.
"This remarkable product of the animal
kingdom, my friends, has been examined
by the wise men oi tne smiuuonlan, Insti
tute and pronounced to be the Simon-pure,
lS-carat article. Such was the giant's
strength, tbat he has- often been, known to
knock an ordinary man's head from his
shoulders with one blow of his mighty fist.
"Bnt, my hearers, there is a remarkable
psychological puzzle in connection with
this two-headed giant, which has excited
the attention of scientific men all over the
country. This question is: Did the giant
do his thinking with the contents of both
skulls? "Was the seriatum in one skull
agitated by hope and fear, and the cerebel
lum in the other skull moved by passion
and love ? These are the great conundrums
that now confront our scientists like a dead
wall. Speculation ends here before this
awful enigma. And now, with your permission-,
we will turn our attention to the
beautiful mermaid sporting in yonder
