The Outlook tn Olhcr States-A Light Off
Year Vote Anticipated in Most of Them.
On the eve of the election in Ohio,
Foraker stock took an upward turn.
Colonel Conner now figures out about
15,000 majority for the Governor's third
term indorsement. The Democrats still
claim the State, bnt give no figures. They
depend on great expected gains iu Hamilton
county. The outlook in other States is
also given.
Columbus, O., November 4. Everybody
is girding up his loins for the great contest
of to-morrow, and Ohio bubbles over with
enthusiasm and voters. Several gentlemen
who fear immersion in the consomme have
been getting themselves into a proper frame
of mind to take the plunge. Several more,
who are very well satisfied that the por
tentous liquid is not for them, may receive
an unwelcome awakening from their dreams
of victory.
Meanwhile the political Esaus are smack
ing their lips over the prospective pottage.
Nothing so pleases yonr average voter of
elastic principles as to learn that both par
ties are well heeled -with the rhino that agi
tates into a forward motion the political
mare. There are a few people who are un
comfortably prone to the belief that the re
sult will be jdose, but the pernicious parti
sans of both parties heartily indorse and
put into vigorous practice the famous advice
of Hon. Bill Chandler.
The leaders have all gone home to vote.
Governor Foraker went to Cincinnati to
day, having recovered his spirits by the rest
of yesterday. He spoke at Lebanon to
night, and returned from there to Cincin
nati, where he will occupy his own home on
"Walnut Hills, and cast his ballot in the
first Congressional District. Hamilton
county is so awfully close that the Governor
will march up to the polls and deposit a
straight Republican ballot He might give
Campbell a courtesy vote, if he wasn't
pretty sure that Campbell will deposit at
Hamilton a straight Democratic vote.
Chairman Neal, of the Democratic Com
mittee, went to Hamilton, where he will
vote. He left at 2 o'clock to-day. He was
claiming everything in sight when seen at
the TJuion depot "You can depend upon
my prediction," said he. "We will have a
safe Legislative majority, and will elect
Chairman Conger, of the Republican State
Executive Committee, went home to Akron
to vote this afternoon. There were several
inquiries at State headquarters for his
opinion, and Colonel Conger wired ' the fol
lowing from Akron, in response to an in
quiry from headquarters for a statement of
his opinion:
Onr poll of over 2,200 precincts In the State
shows a plurality for the Republican State
ticket of over 21,000 outside of Hamilton
county. To be conservative, we deduct 5,500
on account of local aificrencss, waiving
strength that may come to us from the same
cause, on the other side. Figuring Hamilton
connty as a standoff, I do not believo our
plurality can possibly fall below 15,000, and may
greatly exceed that figure. (We estimate our
majority in the Senate at three, and in the
House at 17.
This prediction is the most positive yet
given, and its comprehensive terms are very
encouracingto certain weak-kneed Republi
cans who are enacting the role of a doubt
ing Thomas, hoping yet fearing.
Before Colonel .Conger went to Akron,
early this morning, he gave The Dispatch
correspondent an outline of his reasons for
expecting a vote in the State of a high
water nature.
There is one very important element which
has been entirely overlooked in this fight so
far as its bearing upon a big vote is concerned.
I have heretofore made no mention of it be
cause it has been my policy to give our workers
a little scare about the apathy of voters. But
there are candidates for Land Appraisers in
tvery township In the State. This position is
of more local importance than any ottier office
of a local nature. The pay is good, S3 a day,
and a good class of men Is generally
nominated. "While the rural voter may
cars very littlo who rules the State, he cares
very much who appraises his land, and he will
be out in force to vote on that office. 1 know
of townships where party lines have been so
broken In the nomination of land appraisers
that from two to seven different men are actual
candidates for the sune oGice. This means a
not fight, with every vote out. Our big .Re
publican majorities come from the rural dis
tricts, and you can see that It is fair to pre
sume that there will be an immense vote
through the State.
The vote last year was eOOu; in round num-
, bers, and mark my prediction, thero will be
SaiODcast to-morrow, and even it there are
WOO less in the aggregate, our percentage
woulcl. be so slightly diminished that roraker's
election would bC assured by from 10,000 to
15,000 votes. It is undeniably close in Hamilton
county, and we neither claim nor concede it.
J may say In conclusion, that although the
Democratic State Committee has been active,
there has been a dismal failure to reduce the
energy expended to actual, practical politics.
Secretary Doane seated to-night that the
. Bepnblican estimates would he based upon
the Forakcr-Poweil vote o! 1887. The "West
ern Union Telegraph Company will collect
and handle all the returns in a thorough
manner, centering in Cincinnati. As the
polls close in Cincinnati and Cleveland at
T .
4 o'clock, early returns will be sent out
from there, and will very clearly indicate
the correctness of estimates.
The Democrats are unquestionably bank
ing on Hamilton county for a big majority.
Should the result prove close the Democratic
sponge will ascend in the ambient air, while
Candidate Campbell is descending into the
appetizing -pottage, all at an early hour in
the evening.
Colonel Yeoman, of this city, known as
the boss political bettor in -the Stale, was
loudly parading around a noted resort to
night with $50 bills radiating from
his fingers in all directions. The
enrrency was conversing loudly. They
were saying Foraker. Colonel Yeoman has
had a bet of 5500 to $400 that Foraker would
have 7,000 plurality in the State posted for
several days. To-night he increased the
odds to $500 to $350 on the same basis, but
no Democrat bit at the bait.
"It's 3 to 2 and no takers, and 2 to 1 and
a few small bettors, with Campbell on the
Short end," said the Colonel. "I won
8,000 pa Foraker two years ago, but can't
place my money as well as I would
like to this year. There are a few bets on
county officers, but the Gubernatorial bettors
don't seem to be getting on deck. This
don't amount to much. Foraker is a posi
tive man. He makes tracks when it snows.
Of course he has enemies, but those enmities
make other friends. Foraker will be elected
by a handsome majority."
It is announced here to-night that the
registration of this county beats that of last
fall, the P resldental year, by 24 votes. This
is a mighty significant straw, and shows that
a fall vote is sin assured fact.
In a summary of the real business of to
morrow, many interesting things are devel
oped. In the 1887 campaign, which will
furnish the basis of estimation for to-morrow's
figuring, there were four candidates,
Foraker, Powell, and John Seitz, Labor
Greenback, and Morris Sharp, Prohibition
ist. Foraker received 356,534 votes; Pow
ell, 333,205; Seitz, 24,711, and Sharp
29,700. Foraker's plurality over PowT
ell was 23,39i, It is the latter fiju res
which Campbell is forced to stand off, and
eye with something of the feeling in which
he would regard a stone wall. In order
that an intelligent idea maybe obtained of
the counties and relative votes of Ohio in
the 1887 contest, a list is appended for refer
ence when figures begin to fly:

Those of the above counties marked with
an asterisk, 21 in number, are considered
doubtful by both parties. It may be also
put down as pretty certain that in Hamilton
county both parties will get Assemblymen
out of the nine of the lower House and three
in the Senate, The present Legislative dis
tricts run by counties, so that it may be
readily seen that the above tabic will en
able the public to foilow the "United States
Senatorship fight closely.
A constitutional amendment is pending
to make Legislative districts on the Penn
sylvania plan. Should it carry, and -should
the Bepublicans have the Legislature, Mr.
Gerrymander will have a luscious time of
it this winter.
TJie total pluralities of these 21 doubtful
counties amounts only to 4,940, or a little
over 240 votes per connty. On this slender
number of votes depends this United States
Senatorship, so that it will be seen that a
very slight error in the calculations of
either side will knock their claims higher
than Gilroy's kite.
It is announced late to-night that the
Foraker vote and the Legislative strangle
will be separately tabulated. Here in Ohio
the gubernatorial question Is of course par
amount, but elsewhere the question of Sher
man's colleague in the Senate has a pro
found intertst.
There are full State and county tickets to
be voted for, .and three Constitutional
amendments, one to redistrict the Legisla
ture; one providing for biennial elections,
and one relating to taxation.
Since the well-defined talk about Foraker
for Senator, E. L. Sampson, candidate for
Lieutenant Governor, and Foraker's suc
cessor, should he go to Washington, has
been much courted by politicians.
At this writing telegrams to the Ohio
State Journal (Republican) from all parts
of the Ste are indicative of the greatest
Bepnblican confidence in Governor For
aker's re-election by .between 14,000 and
20,000. It will, however, be closer than
that. Waxes.
Pennsylvania Voters Apparently Little In
terested In Election Results.
Philadelphia, November 4. The only
officer to be voted for in Pennsylvania to
morrow is a successor to State Treasurer
Hart Three candidates are in the field:
Henry K. Boyer, Bepnblican; Edmund
A. Bigler, Democrat, and J. B. Johnston,
Prohibitionist. Advices from all parts of
the State indicate that the rote will be
light. There has been comparatively little,
campaigning, at this is considered an "off
year," and there appears to be little or no
interest in the result of the election.
The Democrats claim that "the usually
large Bepnblican majority In the State will
be greatly reduced, while the Republicans
are confident their majority will be about
as heretofore. The Prohibitionists, as usual,
claim that ajarge vote will be cast f or-their
Complications That Blake It HnnTto Tell
Which Way the pat Will J"nip-The
Main Contest on Senators and
New YoBK,.November 4. -The greater
interest in the elections to be held in this
State to-morrow centers in the result of the
balloting for members of the Legislature.
The Bepublicans had a majority in the last
Legislature of about 40 on joint ballot. It
is their ambition, this year to increase it to a
two-thirds majority, so that it will be pos
sible to pass measures over the Dem
ocratic Governor's vetoes. On the
other hand, the Democrats hope
to reduce the Bepnblican majority and, il
possible, to wipe it out entirely. It is possi
ble that they may succeed in the first re
spect, but they will hardly be able to effect
such a change as the securing of a majority
would involve, particularly as the efforts
made in New York Citv to arrange a com
bination between the Tammany Hall and
Connty Democracy organizations on Legis
lative candidates proved in some cases a
failure. The State officers to be chosen are
Secretary of State, Controller, State Treas
urer, Attorney General. State Engineer and
a Judge of the Court of Appeals.
As the State is considered naturally
Democratic, and no issues have arisen to
divert votes in large numbers, there is
reason in the claim of the Democratic lead
ers that their ticket will be successful. It
will be remembered that the New York City.
representatives in the Syracuse convention
opposed the renomination of Messrs.
Wemple and Tabor for Controller and
Attorney General respectively, and there is
a likelihood that these two candidates may
rnn behind their ticket General Knapp,
Chairman of the Republican State Commit
tee, asserted to-day that Tabor's and
Wemple's defeat was certain and that he
thought the whole Republican ticket would
be elected.
In New York City the preparations for
the election were all completed to-night.
The situation is complicated by the singular
combination which has been made between
the County Democracy and the Bepublicans
to defeat the Tammany Hall ticket, and the
impression prevails in some quarters that
this will lead to a good deal of trading, and
it has, already beep charged that more or
less'colonization of voters has been indulged
in. In line with the decision of the Supreme
Court that the voter may not visit the polls
twice or oftener in order' to deposit his full
ballot, the Police Commissioners have issued
instructions to the force to see that no one be
permitted to present his ballots eicept'in the
proposed form.
Democrats Think the Election Is Close
Bepublicans Don't Fenr That the
Growing Anil-Prohibition Sen.
tlment Will Work Them
Much Ilnrm.
Davenpobt, Ia., November 4. J. J.
Bicharason, the Iowa member of the Na
tional Democratic Committee, was asked
this evening for his views on the outcome of
to-morrow's election in this State. Mr.
Richardson said that dnring the
past week he had received .advices
from all parts of Iowa of the most
assuring nature. Enough changes are being
noted, if correspondents are not misinformed,
to overcome the majority given Governor
Larrabee two years ago. In this part of the
State, Mr. Bichardson said, many Bepub
licans declare they will vote for the Demo
cratic nominee, Boies, on account of his
pledged opposition to prohibitory legisla
tion. Mr. Bichardson is' confident of the
defeat of the Bepnblican State ticket, and
particularly its head, Senator Hutchison.
George D. Perkins editor of the Sioux
City Journal, in nn interview, said he has
no doubt or Republican success to-morrow.
Hutchison has been outspoken in support
of prohibition, and thus invited whatever
antagonism the opponents of this policy
can muster. Mr. Perkins expects the Re
publican majority on joint ballot in the
Legislature will be increased, rendering cer
tain the re-election of Senator Allison, As
a matter of fact, Mr Perkins says, the only
fight is oyer the saloon question, and the
vote against prohibition in nearly all the
larger cities is likely to show an increase.
In the rural districts the sentiment in favor
of prohibition is generally increased.
M. M. Ham, formerly member of the
Democratic National Committee far Iowa,
in an interview this evening, said that the
coming election was the most doubtful of
any held in Iowa for 35 years. Most of the
Democrats expect to elect Boies, and the
Bepublicans, as a rale, are more lrightened
than they have ever been before. The reac
tion from prohibition is great, the stand of
the druggists. Farmers' Alliance and work
ingmen are all encouraging to the Demo
crats. Hopeful reports have been received
from all parts of the- State, and great dis
affection has been shown among Bepubli
cans, while the Democrats are solid.
Northwestern Ohio Expccipd to Give For
nkcr n Great Bis; Boost.
Toledo, O., November 4. There has
been no dissatisfaction, to speak of, in the
Bepnblican ranks in Northwestern Ohio,
and Governor Foraker will get the party
vote, with the possible exception of a few
Germansand the liqnor element. On the
other hand, the Northwestern Ohio Demo
crats are not enthusiastic for Campbell, be
cause they favored the nomination of Law
rence T. NeRl. Two counties, particularly
Henry and Lucas, sent mass delegations to
the convention for Neal, bnt were euchred
out of their votes by Campbell's supporters.
Democrats are apathetic in this section,
and while Bepublicans have not been stirred
np to fever heat, they will get out almost
the vote. In the city of Toledo hundreds of
Democrats failed to register. Again, North
western Ohio is the strongest Blaine and
Foraker section of the Stat:, and the third
term cry is not even heard. It is also a
strong Grand Army section, and the veterans
are enthusiastic for Foraker.
Republicans and Democrats Eqaally Con
fident of Victory.
Jebsev Cmr, November 4, At the
headquarters of the Republican and Demo
cratic State Committee this evening ap
parent confidence. was evinced in regard to
to-morrow's election. Assistant Secretary
J. Herbert Potts, of the Bepnblican
Committee, said: "We have every
reason to believe that the re
sult will prove a sorry surprise to
'our friends the enemy.' Careful estimates
from all parts of the State point to the
election of General Grubb as Governor by a
plurality ranging trom 1,500 to 4,000."
Secretary Willard C. Fiske, ot the Demo
cratic State Committee, said: "Governor
Abbett will certainly be elected to-morrow,
and there is no such thing as speculation
A Dispatch From the Great Explorer
Eeceived by Mr. McKinnon.
And Is Expected to Beach the Coast in
January or February,
The City cf Constsntlaeple a Ecene or Hsgiul
Henry M. Stanley, the African explorer,
has at last been heard from direct. A dis
patch from him has been received by the
head of theEmin relief committee. Stanley's
dispatch tells fully of the capture and host
age pf Emin Bey and Jeppson. He left the
Albert Nyanza, homeward bound, on the
8th of May. He is expected to reaeh the
coast in January or February.
Londos", November 4. Mr. Mackinnon,
the head of the Emin Belief Committee, has
received a dispatch from Henry M. Stapley.
The explorer says;
"I reached the Albert Nyanza from
Banalya, for the third time in 140 days, and
found out that Emin and Jeppson bad both
been prisoners since the 16th of
August, 1883, '.being the day
after I made the discovery that
Barttelot's caravan had been wrecked. The
troops In the Equatorial province had re.
volted and shaken off all allegiance. Shortly
after the Mahdists invaded the province in
full force.
"After the first battle,in May,the stations
yielded and a panio struck the natives, who
joined the invaders and assisted in the work
of destruction. The invaders subsequently
suffered reverses, and despatched a steamer
to .Khartoum for reinforcements.
"I fonnd a letter waiting for me near the
Albert Nyanza, exposing the dangerous po
sition of the survivors and urging the imme
diate necessity of my arrival before
the end of December, as otherwise it
would be too late. I arrived there on the
18th of January for the third time. From the
14th of February to the 8th of May I waited
for the fugitives, and then left the Albert
Nyanza homeward bound.
"By the course taken I traversed the
Semliki valley, the Awamba, the Uson
gora, the Toro, the TJhaiyana, the TJnyam
paka, the Anhori, the Karagwe, the TJzinza,
the South Victoria and the Nyanza, TXo
hostile natives were met. Since we left
Sabbarejawe traveled along the base of
the snowy' range, Rnjeniori. Three sides of
tbe Southern Nyanza, or Nyanza of TJson
gora, which is called now Albert Edward
Nyanza, are about 900 feet higher than
Albert Nyanza, having an exit at Semliki
which receives over 50 streams from
the Bujenzori and finally enters the
Albert Nyanza, waking the Albert Edward
the source of the southwest branch of the
White Nile, the Victoria Nyanza being the
source of the southeast branch."
Mr. Mackinnon -ayithe "committee has
given orders that supplies for Stanley be
hurried on to Mowapa, and beyond there, if
possible. Stanley is expected to reach the
coast in January or February.
A Grand Banquet nnd Benntifal Illumina
tions In Their ilpuor.
Constantinople, November 4. This
afternoon the Imperial visitors made an ex
cursion to Thorapia. In the evening the
Sultan gave a banquet; in honor of his
guests and afterward escorted the
Empress to the royal harem, where she
remained nearly an hoar. The Sultan's
two oldest daughters, at the request of the
Empress, played upon the piano, finish
ing their performance with the
Prussian anthem. In the evening
Emperor William and the Empress drove
through the city in order to see some illum
inations and fireworks which had been pro
vided fqr their entertainment. There was a
blaze of lights from the streets, palaces, bar
racks and gunboats. In the Boyal Gardens
acres of ground were covered with lamps
and transparencies of various colored de
vices. The scene was ono of magical
splendor. The streets were for a time im
passable on account of the crowds which
thronged them.
It has been decided that the imperial
guests will stav till Wednesday, in order
that Emperor William's desire for it shoot
ing excursion on the Asiatic side of the
Bosphorus may be gratified.
Sensational Chnrges Blade Against Italy In
a Paris Periodical.
Pabis, November 4. Daloncle, Min
ister Spuller's secretary, in an ar
ticle in the XIX. Skcle, declares
that during the recent electoral cam
paign in France, the Italiau Government
hoping for a Boulangist triumph, bad 80,
000 troops waiting for the signal to invade
France, Signer Crispj, the writer farther
says, wanted England and Germany to
consent to Italy's sending a note to France,
demanding the abandonment of the French
protectorate over Tunis, in order to provoke
a quarrel.
England declined, and Germany, the
writer believes, sharply rebuked Signor
Crispi. The triumph of President Carnot
upset Italy's plans,

Molten metal Breaks From b Lebanon
Fnrnace Seven Laborers Horned
Almost Beyond Recognition
Sad Scenes Anions" the
Friends of the
rerxcLtirTzlza&iu to tbx sisfxtcb.1
Lebahon-, November 4, Bobert H.
Coleman's furnace, No. 1, situated in West
Lebanon, along the Lebanon Railroad,
broke at 5 o'clock this afternoon In the rear
of the stack, and hurled forth the molten
metal, which soon spread over that part of
the furnace, while the escaping gas was
forced up a distance of over
!00 feet, enveloping the elevator
and tunnel head- A similar break
occurred there on Saturday night and con
siderable slag was forced out, but the break
was repaired this morning. John Snider
was placed in charge of a force of laborers
to remove the slag, and while removing
a heavy piece over the spot where the break
had occurred, it again burst forth. The
following laborers were caught in the
molten flood and burned to death:
Those injuried badly were John Bohr
and Henry Eisenhauer. Nearly all the
killed and'injured have families.
Harvey Bohr was caught by the flames
while in the elevator, and bnrned to death.
Harvey Beck was caught on the first land
ing above the break, and his body bnrned
black. He was Identified by his watch,
which stopped at 5 o'clock, and his pocket
Eck jumped from the elevator and rolled
down over the casting bouse, and fell into
the pit. His clothing was burned off his
body, but he walked to the office, and died
while being taken home. William Snider
was found in the slag with his arms and legs
burnt off, while his body remained above
the molten petal. Several more bodieshaye
been removed from the slag, but they can
hot be recognized.
An alarm of fire was sounded and the
steam engines ot the city went into service,
throwing water op the slag so as to cool it
off, allowing the men to go to work at recov
ering the bodies. There was intense excite
ment among the several hundred women
who came rushing to ascertain whether their
men were safe. There were some sad scenes
but all of them bore up bravely under the
circumstances. The dead so far recovered
were placed in the office at the works, while
the injured were conveyed to their homes.
The work of recovering the dead will be
continued all night.
Adjustment of tho Differences Between Fern
1 and the English Bondholders,
New Yobk, November 4. Within a few
days there will arrive in London a docu
ment of the highest importance to many cit
izens of Great Britain, The people of Peru
are equally interested in it, and W. B.
Grace & Co. and other New Yorkers have
moro than ordinary interest ;a ta contents.
The document represents the labors and
negotiations of four years between W. R.
Grace fy Co. and the owners of 56,000.000
of Peruvian bonds on the one hand, and the
Bepublio of Peru on the other, to bring
abont an adjustment of the difference be
tween the English owners of the bonds and
Peru. The document in transit from Catlap
and London contains the settlement of these
differences. It it signed by Michael P.
Grace and Lord Dunemore, representing
the English bondholders, and President
Caereze, of Peru. It was only accepted
and passed by the Congress of Peru before
the President's signature was appended.
By the provisions of this paper the owners
of the 06,000,000 bonds relinquish their se
curities as a claim on Pern in retnrn for a
contract, to last 66 years, .whereby the man
agement of all of the railroads, large min
ing interests, all of the guano deposits not
now owned by Chili, extensive concessions
of land said to be in the neighborhood of
4,000,000 acres and the payment of 80,
000 annually by the custom house at Callao,
are turned oyer to the representatives of
the English bondholders. These repre
sentatives are to develop the mines and the
guano deposits, to improve the lands turned
over to them, and to develop and improvethe
railroads. It will require something like
$30,000,000 to put the railroads in first-clas3
shape. '
How Ex-Scnnor KeJIogg Gpt a Job for a
Colored Constituent.
Washington, November 4.-The priv
ate office of Public Printer Palmer was this
afternoon the scene pf a lively conversation
between Mr. Palmer and ex-Senator William
Pitt Kellogg. The ex-Senator called upon
the public printer and urged the appoint
ment of a colored man to a place as a laborer,
and he was met by the answer that there
were no vacancies. "No vacancies," fairly
yelled the white-haired carpetbagger
from Louisiana. "Make vacancies.
Turn out these Democrats with
whom yonr department is filled, and put
Republicans in their places. I am tired of
being met by the answer which yon have
given me. Dozens of colored men, good and
loyal Republicans, have walked the ' shoes
off Uieir feet going from one department to
another, trying to get something to do, and
although wtyh the best indorsements, they
are met in nearly every instance by the
most arrogant rebuffs. But for the colored
man Harrison never would have been
elected, and he has done nothing for the
race, except to make a few fancy appoint
ments." When the ex-Senator got through and Mr.
Palmer could catch his breath, he said the

Pzikbbbubo, Va., November 4, The
eyes of the whole country are turned on the
election to be held iu Virginia to-morrow
for State officers. With the election of Mc
Kinney the State enters upon another era
of prosperity and peace; with the election of
Mahone, the solid South is broken. That
McKinney will be elected and Mahone de
feated admits of scarcely a doubt Conserva
tive Democrats place McKinney's majority
at 15,000 or 20,000. Frauds B. Lassiter,
Chairman of the Fourth District Demo
cratic Committee, asked for his views to
night in regard to the outlook, said: "The
normal Ee'publican majority la the Fourth
district has been rather more than 7,000.
Through the energetic management of the
November flection last year thi3 was re
duced to 3,$79. This year there is a great
disaffection among the Bepublicans, and
unless Mahone spends extravagant sums In
we cannot fail to do as well as we did last
year. The Democrats are greatly encour
aged and in excellentwprking trim. Hope
ful accounts come from every county. I
hope to see something like a political revo
lution. The Democratic ticket will receive the
support of a large number of colored voters
who are violently opposed to Mahone and
his tyrannical methods- One of the most
prominent colored Bepublicans in the State
stated, to-day that there were about 90,000 col
ored voters in the State, and that in his opin
ion 20,000 of this number wonld cas their
ballots for McKinney and the other Demo
cratic nominees. It is believed by many
that Langston's sudden change in the past
few davs will avail Mahone but little in
this political fight, for the change came too
It is reported that Mahone has been fur
nished with $25,000 by the Bepnblican Na
tional Committee with which to insure his
election, He had a large number of callers
to-day, and to-night his residence is besieged
with his friends, anxious te get some cheer
ing news and learn what the little General
thinks of his chances. Mahone says that he
will be elected, but declines to say by what
majority. His friends say that be will de
feat; McKinney by at least IO.OOO majority.
Ex-Congressman James D, Brady says that
with a fall ballot and fair count Mahone will
bave a majority over McKinney anywhere
from 6,000 to 10.000. . W. W, Evans, editor
of the JJroj&iaacef, therganctthetsoU
ored peppjphlerei and who is also a colored
member of the. Virginia Legislature, of
Petersburg, says fbat in his opinion Mar
bone's majority will be 10,000. Aa a pre
cautionary Eieasure, and with a view of
quelling any disturbance that may occur,
Mayor Collier thia afternoon swore n an
extra police Ibrce cf 60 men to do duty at
the polls to-morrow.
A letter has just been received at Chat
ham, in Pittsylvania connty, from; the clerk
of Mercer county, West Virginia, giving
the names of 67 negroes from Pittsylvania
county who are registered in Mercer and
McDowell counties, West Virginia, and
voted there last fall for Goff, the Bepnbli
can candidate for Governor. They are all
registered in Pittsylvania county, and haye
returned to that county to yote for Mahone.
But for this timely information here over 67
illegal votes would have been cast for the
Republican ticket. A fraud of another
kind comes from Roanoke City, Eighteen
negroes are registered there in one ward
upon transfers from Dry Fork precinct, in
Pittsylvania. The Registrar t Dry Fork
states that he only isued four transfers, and
that the other 14 are forgeries, no such
names having been on the Pry Fork books.
Such fraudulent practices on the part of
the Mahoneltes are coming to light in all of
the counties, and in spite of the scrutiny of
the Democrats (hey say several thousand
negrpes are still
and will vote. Mahone's agents are devot
ing tneir greatest energies to tne aistnou
tion ot these bogus transfers, and large num
bers of negroes are reported as arriving from
different points to-day to Vote. Many come
from the Maryland border, but the largest
number are from Tennessee and North Caro
lina. ''Poor, blind, driven creatures," said
a Democrat from Amelia to-day, as he ex
hibited a list of 43 of these illegal voters
that he had been commissioned to watch.
"We hate o pat them in the penitentiary,
in accordanee with the law, for it doesn't
deter othersof the race from thessme offenses.
They don't dare to refuse to do as Mahone
or anybody who represents the Republican!
party tells them to do, Many of these ne
groes have left their bread-earning employ
ments in other places to come here and vote
because they are superstitious abont the
penalty that will fall upon them if they do
not obey."
This campaign has proved a blessing to
Mahone in a respect which, according to
some high authorities, js of more value than
a Governorship or any other political place.
For many years he has been a confirmed ays
peptic. When he was railroad president
his private car was stocked witn an Kinas ot
waters and nostrums, - His Senatorial term
increased his malady. The long rides in the
open air, the walks oyer rough country roads
and the enforced physical exertion entailed
by his campaign haye jolted the dyspepsia
out of him anqreadjusted the stomach of the
former rearlluster to such a decree that he
weighs more than he ever did, The crane
like abdomen is swollen until it is a tolera
bly fair miniature of the bloated bondholder
section once the subject of derision by (be
General in his readjuster speeches and
pamphlets. His cheeks are round and rosy
and the signs of good health are apparent.

Nothing to Prevent Mrs. Grant Peine Barfed
Near the General la ArHagtsfl Specu
lation oa the Removal of tboHero's
Remains General Tboaa'
Last Resting- Place.
rsrxcuL txxsqbaJi to tos cisrATCX.t
Washisgtoit, November 4. It having
been reported that an obstacle in the way of
transferring the remains ot General Grant
to Arlington would be his stipulation that
wherever he was entombed his wife must
be placed beside him after his death. Gen
eral Holabird was to-day asked whether
there would be any objection to the burial
of Mrs. Grant at Arlington. The General
said in reply that there would be no diffi
culty whatever iaproyiding a place alongside
the General for the interment of Mrs.
Grant when she dies. "The law," said be,
"takes no cognizance of the burial of any
person other than an officer, but custom has
made regular the burial of wives and chil
dren of officers in national cemeteries. Each
officer on duty in this vicinity is entitled to
a lot 12 feet square, and his family is at
liberty to bury more than one person in the
lot; there is ample room. Where the dead
are buried in 'the ranks, I have frequently
given permission to the children of a vet
eran to bury their mother in the father's
grave. Arlington is not in the city, and no
harm caa result If General .Grant's re
mains are removed to Arlington, and Mrs.
Grant desires to be buried near her husband,
there will be no obstacle in the way."
An army officer of promipenee was very
emphatic in the expression of bis views as
to the removal of General Grant's remains.
"liine-tenthsoftne army officers," said he,
"are opposed to burying Grant Jn Virginia.
Relatives of long-dead array officers have
been besiegine the War Department for
I. permission to have their loved ones removed
to Arlington, the emigratory mqvement
being started by the burial at that place of
Sheridan. If they want to bury Grant at
the national capital why don't they take
him to the Soldiers' Home, instead of uidto?
him away across the Potomac? You will
find that the army is almost a unit against
Arlington as a resting place for Grant
"While the removal of General Grant's
body is being agitated," he continued,
"why doesn't somebody say a word about
General Thomas? His tomb at Troy is by
no means what it should be, and it J far
away from thousands qt the General's ad
mirers, who wpuld see it were it in Wash
ington. Of course, General Grant was the
great figure ol the war, but General Thomas
comes mighty near being at tbe top."
Cattle Herders Perish In a Bllndlas Blizzard

Denyeb, November 4. A report of one
of the results of the terrible blizzards which
swept over Eastern Colorado and Northern
New Mexico Thursday and Friday of last
week reached herf from Folsom, N, M.,
Thursday night Henry Miller, the
range foreman for Colonel K, O.
Head, with several .cowboys camped
near Sierra Grande with 1,800 beef
cattle, which they were holding for the pur
pose of loading1 in cars; At 4 o'clock that
morning a blizzard from the northwest
struck the herd, drfving the cattle toward
Panhandle, Tex., the cowboys being unable
to hold them.' The snow was so blinding
that it made It impossible to see CO feet
ahead. Miller called his men together and
tbey started to follow the ,hrd and made aa.
attempt to keep them bunched, as far w
The men bmBue separated, ajd Jrjday

Fessisa Applicants &wt Jfot Go la Wak
Infffsu for Medical EssuaJaattea.
Washington, Noyember 4. Commis
sioner Baum, of the Pension Bureau, baa
announced that hereafter, in all cases where
a medical examination s desired, or re
quired under any of the several pension
lews, such examination must be made by
tbe local board of examining surgeons in
the district in which the claimant resides.
General Baum said to-day that in many in
stances claimants come to Washington from
a great distance, and at considerable ex
pense, in the erroneous belief that by an
examination by the Washington board, and
personal solicitation, their cases will be
more-promptly acted; upon, and possibly
with a greater degree of liberality. Some
of these are indeed poor and cannot afford
the expense, and it is more to save these
people from needless expense than it is to
give tbe several examining- boards their
proptr share of the work of making exam
inations that this policy has been .adopted.
If the local boards are Incompetent or
are influenced by prejudice or favoritism,
said General Baum. thev will be removed.
and competent surgeons appointed in their
E laces. The Washington board will not
ereafter be allowed to examine claimants
for pensions -whose residence is not within
its jurisdiction.
Shippers Want Pay Higher Tariff Between

Chicago, November 4. A special meet
ing of the Western and Northwestern divi-r
sions of the Western Freight Association
was held to-day to further consider the
proposition to advance through rates from
the seaboard to St. Panl and Minneapolis.
The Burlington and Northern withdrew, or
modified its objections of last week, and tbe
outcome of the conference was an agreement
to establish through rates on the following
basis, taking; effect November 20: First
class, 51.15; second, $1; third, 80 cents;
fourth, 56 cents; fifth, 48 cents; sixth, 40
cents. ,
The local rates from Chicago to St, Paul,
which were reduced a short time ago to the
basis of 40 cents a hundred pounds first
class, will be restored to the fSO-eent basis.
The rate on wheat and its products will be
advanced from 7 to 10 cents a hundred
pounds from Minneapolis and St Paul to
Chicago on shipments destined to points
east of Chicago.

Washington, November 4, There waa
quite a rivalry between Bepresentitaves of
North and South Dacota as to which should
be first admitted to the Union, tbe lucky
one being tbe one whose proclamation of
admission was first signed by tbe President.
Tbe influences used to secure this priority
were not only amusing but absurd, and the
President, not to bej'secused of favoritism
determined that not even he should know
which was first admitted,,
Consequently, when the proelassations
were brought to the; Executive Mansion,
from tbe War Department, they were
shuffled and cut and shuffled again, and
then the President scrawled his autograph,
without agaia'lBpklng at the proclamations.
