Got. Lampson's Election.
Why Allen 0. Myers is Sweating
Under the Democratic Collar.
Al Carlisle, the widely-known politician
j'of Ohio, came into the city last evening
f, from Columbns, where he has been since the
election. There are few men better posted
in Ohio politics and none who have less per
sonal interests at stake. His friends agree
that he could have almost any appointive
office in the giftof Governor-elect Campbell,
but Mr. Carlisle says flatly that he will not
accept office, having, as he puts it, "trouble
enough already."
Mr. Carlisle was seen last evening by a
representative of The Dispatch, and, in
answer to a question as to the cause of Mr.
Campbell's success, said:
"The interest taken in the Democratic
State Convention at Dayton had mucn to do
with it. The sharp contest for the nomina
tion produced a lull attendance. It was the
largest convention ever held by the Ohio
Democracy, and out of the struggle came
one ot the best platforms ever adopted in
Ohio. It united all elements or the party
in its support Mr. Campbell represented
in himself the party's platform, and con
ducted a most brilliant canvass, aided by
the gentlemen who were his rivals lor the
nomination. The management of the Dem
ocratic campaign was perfection itself. 2o
mistakes were made from start to finish.
The Democracy was aided by Foraker's un
popularity, caused by his forcing himself on
the party as a third term candidate, and con
tinual blunders by the Republican man
agers and Governor Foraker's boon com
panion, Murat Halstead, of the Commercial
"Will Mr. Marquis make a contest for the
office of Lieutenant Governor?"
''Yes, sir. The returns first certified to
by the Clerks of the county courts gave
Marquis a plurality of 32. Some mistakes
were discovered, in Montgomery, Mahoning
and other counties, and the clerks made cor
rections. Then when the Secretary of State
counted up the votes Lampson had an ap
parent plurality ot 42. However, a mistake
was found in the vote of Washington county
and that return was then sent back to the
clerk. That clerk is a Republican, and the
Republicans cannot cry traud. The abstract
was again received at Columbus yesterday
evening. The correction makes a reduction
of 20 in Sampson's apparent plurality, leav
ing it only 22. Mr. Marquis has been in
Columbus for two days, in consultation with
his attorneys, Hon. George L. Converse and
Hon. Thomas K. Powell, and with leading
Democrats of Franklin county and the
State, in regard to his contest. His action
was indicated by Mr. Powell's introduction
of Mr. Marquis at the meeting in Columbus
last night. He said: 'We have with us this
evening our Lieutenant Governor elect, Mr.
Marquis, of Bellefontaine, who, I believe,
has been counted out but will yet be Lieu
tenant Gorernor of Ohio.
"Mr. Marquis is one of the finest men in
Ohio, and would not make the contest were
it not that he has assurance of enough
illegal votes to turn the thing in his favor."
"What is the meaning of Allen 0. Myers'
declaration against millionaire candidates
for the United States Senate?"
"I think the tronble is this: Mvers has
been under a big salary from John R. Mc
Lean, and owing to his troubles at Colum
bus in the tally sheet trials, the people who
have charge of Mr. McLean's newspaper
business have refused to allow him to write
political articles in the Enquirer. For a
number of years Myers has been active in
Ohio politics, is well versed as to the ins
and outs of both parties, and is a brilliant
correspondent. Having been denied the
privilege ot writing any more for the En
quirer, on politics, has made him sore.
While be has stated many truths in what he
has said, he is especially correct in his as
sertion that public sentiment in Ohio
cannot be bought. The fact, how
ever, that a man is a millionaire
will not be considered a bar against
his being a candidate for any
office in the gift of the people. The people
will demand that he be a man of ability,
and that he shall not be honored with such
an office simply because he has contributed
to campaign funds. They will look to the
individual services which he has rendered
the party in its many fights, and his ability
to defend the positions of the party in the
Senate and on the stump before the peo
"Who are the Democratic candidates for
the Senatorship?"
"Calvin S. Brice, Chairman of the Demo
cratic National Committee; John H. Me
diation, an able attorney of Dayton, who
has secured a good record in Congress;
Charles Baker, an eminent lawyer of Cin
cinnati, and General John H. Thomas, a
large and successful manufacturer of Spring
field. General Thomas is distinctively a
tariff reformer and in full sympathy with
Mr. Cleveland's ideas on that subject.
While some of these gentlemen may not de
serve the honor, there is little question as to
their ability. At this time it looks as if the
fight were an open one, with a possibility
that other prominent men may be brought
out. The Republican caucus, I think, will
nominate Charley Foster."
f "Who will be the candidates for Speaker
r of the House?"
xne two prominent canamaies are Jur.
Hysley, of Perry county, and Hon. Jesse P.
Torfces, of Coshocton countv."
"What are their chances?"
"It seems to be the general opinion that
Mr. Forbes will be successful. He is a
capable man. He is young and vigorous,
and was a member of the last House."
Mr. Carlisle says that the biennial election
amendment to the State Constitution re
ceived 255,000 votes, while 252,000 votes
were cast against it. The question whether
or not it requires a majority of all the votes
cast, which it did not receive, will soon be
passed upon by the Supreme Court If it
is adopted it will make Mr. Campbell's
term three years instead of two.
Newberry Interfered In n Flrfit and Was
Tined S10 for II i Tronble.
M. L Dean had a case before Alderman
Porter yesterday. Sidney Uewberry, who
works at the Black Diamond, was charged
with striking the son of Kate Gallagher.
Newberry's boy was fighting with young
Gallagher in the Thirteenth ward. New
terry was getting the worst of it, when his
father, coming home from work, happened
to notice them. The man caught hold of
Gallagher and severely thrashed him, hit
ting him across the head with the chair.
Newberry was fined f 10 and costs or 30 days
to the workhouse.

How Prisoner Chnpman Bowled Over the
I- & O. Cbnmplon A. WUhart Bobs
Up Once More Fan at the Jail.
William Chapman was committed to jail
yesterday by Alderman Carlisle on charges
of selling liquor without license and on Sun
day, entered by A. Wishart, in default of
$1,000 bail."
The circumstances of Chapman's arrest
were rather unusual. A son of Alderman
Carlisle was the arresting officer. Chapman
is a large, fine-looking man, beside whom
young Carlisle looked like a school boy.
Chapman good-naturedly accompanied Car
lisle as far as the jail entrance, and then
suddenly remembered that he bad a little
business to attend to down town. He in
formed Carlisle of his intention of going
down to attend to it, bnt tbat young man
thought a prisoner had no right to attend to
any business, and caught Chapman by the
arm to lead bim into jail.
Chapman stretched out his arm and Car
lisle went spinning ont into the street The
act was repeated several times, and quite a
crowd gathered aronnd enjoying the fun,
much to Carlisle's discomfiture. But, al
though embarrassed, Carlisle did not allow
his fear ot his prisoner to get the better of
bis judgment, and be accommodatingly al
lowed Chapman to cross the street and carry
on a conversation for half an hour with
some friends, thongh he kept coaxing him
all the while to come over to the jail and al
low himself to be arrested. Chapman, how
ever, paid no attention to his cap
tor, except to catch him by the
neck every once in awhile and send him
running out into the street until his conver
sation was ended, and then he started down
the street, Carlisle following. In about an
hour Chapman returned to the jail, followed
still by Carlisle, and turned himself over to
Warden Berlin. Carlisle turned the com
mitments over to tbe "Warden, and the pris
oner was locKea up.
In addition to Chapman Alderman Car
lisle committed Marshall Moss and his wife
to jail yesterday on charges of illegal sell
ing and Sunday selling. A. Wishart was
tbe prosecutor in both cases.
A Gay and Feslire Couple of Iiorera Caught
In Allechenv
Yesterday afternoon Detective Eichen
laub, of Allegheny, arrested Henry Frie
decker and Wilhelmina Bender, who are
alleged to be an eloping couple from New
York City. The pair have been living in
Allegheny for eight weeks, part of the time
with a Mrs. Eiffel, a sister of Mrs. Bender.
Mrs. Eiffel kept them in her house for six
weeks, when they had a quarrel. Mrs. Ben
der was turned out and her husband in New
York notified. He came here a few days
ago and swore out a warrant for the couple.
Mrs. Bender was arrested at a house on East
street, where she had gone housekeeping,
and Friedecker at a house on Fifth avenue,
this city, where he was working at his trade
carpentering. They will have a hearing be
fore Mavor Pearson to-morrow.
Mrs. Bender claims that her husband ill
treated her, and has no right to molest her,
as he procured a divorce when she deserted
Ia There Any Wonder That Policemen Soon
Xearn to Swear.
All the difficulties encountered by the
police are not made by the criminals, or
those trying to get outside the reach of the
lash of the law. The manner in which the
police bureau is notified of the advent of
criminals is sometimes as misguiding as if
the man who wanted to dodge the officers
dictated the telegram. For example, the
following received last night from Jean
nette might be taken to cloak the stunted
smasher of the laws of the Commonwealth
rather than lead to bis arrest:
Look out for short, hump-backed man. Rob
bery m Jeanne tte. James A. Farmer.
The telegram giving no time in which to
look out for the coming man, subjected a
great many people who might be afflicted
with spinal deformity to arrest, more
especially if, as in nine cases out of ten, his
stature happened to be short The descrip
tion was taken with a receipt for ten words
and several grains of salt
The Dnrdlnes Seek Magistrates' Ofllces to
Ventilate Their Slaritnl Infelicities.
The hearing in the case of E. F. Dardine,
charged before Alderman Richards by his
wife with assault and battery, was continued
last evening. After hearing the testimony
the case was dismissed. Dardine has pre
viously been held in $500 bail for court on
the charge of desertion, preferred by his
wife. Mrs. Dardine, who had been charged
by her husband's father with a serious of
fense, was held in 5500 bail for a hearing
Immediately after the hearing, Dardine
was arrested by a constable from Magistrate
McKenna's office. The charge against him
was still more grave and was brought by his
wife. He was held for a hearing. Dardine
is 21 and his wife but 17. Their married
life was ery unhappy.
That Bcllevue Swain Alter the Father of
nu Dalclnea.
Herman Weschalk appeared before Al
derman Porter yesterday and entered suit
against Austin and August Mischbaugh for
assault and battery and felonious shooting.
The parties reside in Bellevue, and the
allegations are that when the prosecutor
went to call on the daughter of Austin
Mischbaugh he was assaulted, kicked from
the house and pistol shots fired at him. The
defendants were arrested and held for a
hearing on Monday.
Oils 3Iarr Andenon Chosen an Assistant
The election for an assistant principal at
the Shakespeare school last night resulted
in Miss Mary Anderson being chosen for
the position.
Miss Anderson's place as teacher of a
lower room was filled by the election of Miss
Jennie McConnel. The Central Board of
Education allow another teacher at this
school. There are 24 candidates applying
for the place. No decision was arrived at
last night by the directors in the matter.
A Crook's Ladder Found.
An officer on making one of his
rounds in the neighborhood of Ben Venue
last evening, found a 16-foot ladder lying
on thehillside above Ben Venue station,
alongside a fence, covered over with a lot
of leaves. When he examined it he found
it to have both ends rapped with carpet, so
it would stop any noise made in placing it
against a building.
A Chief Marsh nl Substitution.

The Beck's Kun Schindery Polluting
the Monongahela Water.
Dr. Mundorf Discusses Possible Methods for
Future Eehef.
There is a deal of condemnation being
heaped upon the Beck's run schindery
again. Southside people claim that the
water is so ioully polluted with organic
matter that the health of the community is
not only endangered, bnt the people are
given a supply of water that is wholly unfit
for use. Beck's rnn, on which is located
the schindery, empties into the Mononga
hela a little more than half a mile above the
influent pipe of the Monongahela Water
Company, and although it is claimed that
the greatest care is exercised in the manage
ment of the schindery, there is more or less
organic matter carried by the surface water
into the adjacent stream, its natural outlet.
The scientific argument being that all
streams carrying organic matter must en
danger the health of the people who draw
water from them, the Southside folks are de
claring themselves against the schindery,
and assert tbat it must be abolished. As
the complaints against the alleged nuisance
are periodical, a Dispatch representative
visited the place yesterday atternoon and
examined into the condition of affairs.
The schindery is located a little over a
a mile from the mouth of Beck's run. It is
owned and operated by Anthony Sulje, and
it consists of two buildings, one on each
side of the run. One building, about 80 feet
long, is used as toe boiling establishment.
Mr. Sulje was not about yesterday after
noon when the reporter called, and tbe lat
ter was obliged to examine the establish
ment alone. The- boiling bouse contains
the boilers and two steam-tight tanks, in
which the material is boiled. The one side
of the house was piled full of bones of dead
animals, and over them, perched on poles,
were a dozen or two of chickens. Rats and
mice were as thick as Kansas grasshoppers,
and they were playing hide and seek among
the huge pile of bones. The odor in and
around the place was anything but pleasant.
Across the run was found the dry house.
This was filled with material that had been
boiled-yesterday, and the drippings were
slowly finding their W3y to the stream a few
feet distant The ground around the entire
establishment is thoroughly saturated with
the filth from the place, and a sickening
odor rises continually from the valley. The
residents in the neighborhood say it is
almost unbearable in the summer time, but
since the cool weather has set in it is not
quite so bad.
Mr. Sulje's manager was seen at his
home in Lower St. Clair township. He said
that every precaution was taken to prevent
a pollution of the water. He said the ma
terial was boiled in steam-tight tanks and
then removed to the dry-house, where it is
prenared for shipment Mr. Sulje has
operated the schindery since 1875, and he
thinks if he was maintaining a nuisance he
would have been compelled to abolish it
long ago.
The prevalence of zymotic diseases on the
Southside during the low water stages of
the river has provoked a very close exam
ination of the water supplied for drinking
and cooking purposes to Southside resi
dences. The result has been a number of
tests, which are now held in testimony of
the deleterions quality of the water. In one
it is shown that drawing a pail of water at
night and letting it sjand until morning
will result in showing a blue scum on the
surface. The water drawn early in the
morning shows apparently a deposit of lime
or some other white substance, which,
whether it is intended as a disinfectant or
not, is not known to the consumers.
The health officials have for some two
years been laboring with the Question of the
.Monongahela Company's water, but have
not as yet reached any conclusion, except to
condemn the existence of schinderies and
other sources of pollution within a range of
the influent pipes, which in any flowing
water is suppose J to clear itself. Tbe state
ment was made some 18 months ago that the
pipe had been so changed as to prevent all
chance of contamination from the schindery
at Beck's rnn, but the people of the South
side are still complaining less of the absence
ot free bridges than of the presence of free
pollution of the water they are compelled to
driuk, without resorting to wells contami
nated by the sewage necessarily taken in by
the conformation of the ground on that side
of the river.
Dr. E. A. Mundorf, of the Southside, who
for years has been an ardent advocate of a
better supply ot water, said last evening:
"The difficulty that besets the sanitary
purification of the Monongahela river will
eventually render the Allegheny impure
also. Both rivers are gradually becoming
large conduits into which is constantly
pourea reiuse ot an sorts along tbe snores,
and as there is a large increasing population
the present temporary methods constructed
to get rid of the accumulation of impurities
will prove inefficient; and as the work of
sanitation necessary to keep pace with the
increase in population would need to be very
extensive, there will come a time when we
will be compelled to seek a remedy else
"There can be no doubt abont the schin
dery having a bad effect upon the condition
of the water supply, and so far as I can see
now, the only possible method in the future
will be a wholesale purification of the water
after it is pumped into the reservoir, and
before it is distributed to consumers, or it
will have to be drawn from a source far be
yond the city limits, The Beck's run
schindery may not contribute any great
amount of organic matter just now, but the
least amount would cause the water used by
our people to be proportionately impure.
The same care should be exercised in fur
nishing a pure water supply that is exer
cised is giving us pure milk, meat and
bread. "
"There is not much sickness on the South
side just now because the people are avoid
ing the use of well water, and the public
health is favored bv a larger volume of
water in the river channels than usual. But
the time may come when all cities not too
remote will be forced to draw their water
supply from great lakes, the natural reser
voirs of pure drinking water."
Dr. M. A. Arnbolt voiced the sentiments
of about half tbe people who talk about tbe
schinderv. He said: "It's an outrage; and it
Is something that would not be tolerated
over in the citv, nor in Allegheny. I con
sider that the State Board ot Health is ex
tremely derelict in its duty. A word trom
the proper officials would have abolished
the establishment long ago. "We cannot
afford to jeopardize the health and welfare
of our common humanity by allowing such
a thing to exist"
Some of the Southside citizens are so in
dignant that there is talk oi bringing suit
against the schindery proprietor to have it
abolished once and for all as a public
Chnrcod With Embezzlement.
John Weyman was yesterday held in 5300
bail for a hearing to-day before Alderman
Gripp, on a charge of embezzlement, pre
ferred by D. Shanahan, Jr. Weyman was

duce dealer, and, according to the allega
tions of the prosecutor, took away produce
and failed to make any return. The amount
of money involved is small.

A Belgian Glass Manufacturer Dis
courses About Fnriiaces,
Evans Strikes Anarchists a Sledge
Hammer Blow in the Neck.
Mons. Georges Deprez is a Belgian gen
tleman who is staying at the Duquesne. He
is general secretary of the Glassware Com
pany of Val Saint Lambert, Belgium, one
of the most extensive in the country, and is
here to improve his knowledge of the States
as well as to attend to bis business interests.
The Val Saint Lambert Company manu
facture cut, decorated and pressed glass
ware, and have a good connection in New
York and Chicago for their wares. In this city
its trade is small. The company prosecutes
its business here in face of a 45 per cent
duty and heavy transportation charges, but
finds its largest markets in China, India and
Turkey. Skilled glassworkers in Belgium
receive as high n3 560 per month, but the
average rate which glassworkers are paid is
$20 a month. The factories are in operation
all the year round; work, in brisk times,
being carried on on Sunday. The
hours of work are from 6 to 6
with two intervals of one hour each for
meals. Fuel is an expensive item, the cur
rent price of coke ruling at S3 80 per 2,000
pounds. Regarding the relative merits of
pot and tank furnaces, Mons. Deprez said:
"The use of pot furnaces for the manu
facture of window glass is almost out of date
in Belgium and the iew firms which still
held to their use are not making any profit
from tbem. I may say that the entire out
pat of window glass in Belgium is the
product of tanks. Among the largest manu
facturers in this line are Jonet, of Lodelin
sart, with four tanks of an average capacity
of each 350,000 pounds; Casimer Lambert,
of Charleroi, who has one tank and 48 pots
the tank capacity is about 500,000 pounds;
Bandourg, of Lodelinsart, with four tanks,
and who makes colored window glass a
specialty; Leon Mondron, of Charleroi, and
Verreries, oflumet, all of whom nse tanks
exclusively. Mariemout has the largest
tank in Belgium, its capacity being 700,000
pounds. He has one 150,000 pounds and 21
pots. The feeling in Belgium is against the
use of too large tanks. They are made, not
all, on the same plan, and there are about a
dozen different designs in use.
"In what are tbe tanks superior to the pot
furnaces, Mons. Denrez?"
"In every single particular. First, it is
found theyare more economical as regards
fuel, a serious item when coke costs any
thing from 52 50 to 51 per 2,000 ponnds.
Then the quality of the tank glass can
always be depended upon. In pots one may
produce good quality, whilf its neighbor
will be found very inferior, and the third
may be so dirty as to yield br,t a very small
percentage ot good qualities, lb en again
the yield of best qualities from the tanks is
very much above that of the lots; the aver
age percentage of best qualities from the
pots being from 50 to 60 per cent, while the
tanks yield fully 90 per cent O) bests
"In my factory we still adhere to pots, of
which we have over 300. "Welcould not use
tanks because it is found that only in pots
can a pnre white glass be made. It is im
material in the window glasl trade if the
glass is slightly colored, but p the pressed
and cut glass trade the glass mast, of course,
be of a pure white. I
"In my opinion it is only a raestion when
the tank furnace will entirely lupersede the
pot and its use become universal."
"How will American competition affect
the Belgian glass trade?"
"Ah 1" said Mons. Duprei, jrith a depre
catory shrug of the shoulder), "we shall
have ceased to do business with you in an
other few years. You have skilled mechan
ics and greater facilities than we posjess.
Your work is better th-.n ours in pressed
and decoratea ware, owing to the superiority
of your molders. We have two Ameran
mold makers in our factory, and their TOrk
is very far superior to the Belgian. A a
few years we are prepared to find a cessa
tion of the export of Belgian window ghss
to America. Then will stop the presled
ware branch, and finally the plate gllss
trade." I
Mons. Duprez said that the proper form
or design of a tank could only be ascer
tained trom experience in its nse, and flat
it usually took four or five years to brinj a
tank down to its best work. Alterations
were necessary from time to time to remedy
defects which only could be discovered in
the course of time. Very large tanks wjre

How a Bootblack Made James McKnlfht
Ijook Like a Contractor. ., i
James McKnight, while standing upon
the City Hall steps yesterday, was ap
proached by a bootblack, who said, "Shine
em up, sir; black yer boots, patent .leather
polish, for a dime." Mr. McKnight looked
with scorn upon the imputed desire fpr
dudeism, and said, "What do I want with
polish? I am a contractor. It isn't polish
I want it is mud. Look at Jim Booth, it
Martin Joyce and others, now if my shots
were plastered up with mud it would
be "
"Yes?" responded the newsboy, with ready
ingenuity, and darting out to the gutter, re
turned with two big handfuls of mud, which
he carefully distributed over Mr. Mc
Knight's lower clothes and shoes, and hold
ing out a hand begrimmed by contact with
the mud-throwing which was as vigorously
conducted as in an ordinary political cam
paign, the boy said, "Now gimme the dime,
I've made a contractor of you."
The contract was carried out, and the
dime paid.
Dr. Evans Tabes No Stock In Spouting Rev
olutionists. Dr. C. Evans, Select Councilman from
the Twenty-third ward, gave an idea of an
archistic prospects in this country yesterday
by saying: "That meeting a week ago was,
of course, a farce, and a pitiful farce; it
had no significance beyond the walls of the
meeting room, nor could the united efforts
of all the Anarchists in the country disturb
our Government in the slightest degree.
This is essentially a people ot homes. We
have too many owners of homesteads, rang
ing from 5600 to 510,000 in value, to permit
of such revolutionary measures as might be
acceptable to the masses in 'countries owned
by from two dozen to 200 proprietors with
almost the powers of life and death in their
hands. Believe me, this talk of commun
ism or anarchy will never amount to more
than talk in our country.
W. C. Marzh Doesn't Believe tho Brazilian
Government la Upset.
Mr. W. C. Marzh, a Brazilian gentleman"
who was for many years a member of the
Imperial Parliament, is in the city. Of the
reported revolution he said yesterday: "The
reports are unreliable. I have no doubt the
r eports were sent out by coffee speculators,
to advance prices. Every dealer here is
scared and coffee can be sold at high figures.
Such reports of revolutions in Brazil have
several' tunes been sent out to boom the
coffee market It is truethat revolution has
been brewing for some time in Southern

HughD. McGaw in the chair. The at
tendance was large and credentials were
presented by Augustus H. Tate, of Iron
Molders' Union No. 14 and Francis E.
Champ, of Hod Carriers' Union No. 1.
The committee on the horse shoers re
ported that the bosses were employing the
old men and that the trade is progressing
smoothly. The committee on the painters
reported that the difficulties between the

A Carson Street Racket In a Merchant's
William Johnston, a storekeeper at South
Twenty-seventh and .Carson streets, was
charged with assault and battery before
Alderman Flack last night by Thomas
Murray. The prosecutor claims that in the
evening while making some purchases in
Johnston's store he was called upon to pay
for some goods which he had not bought,
and when he declined to hand over was as
saulted and thrown out of the store.
The constable had not been gone many
minutes with the warrant for Johnston's ar
rest, when a man came into the Alderman's
office and made an information against
Murray, charging assault and battery. His
name, he said, is Harry Boss, a partner in
business with Johnston. His version was
that Murray became violent and abusive to
everyone who came into the store and when
asked to keep quiet or leave the place at
tacked and beat the prosecutor. Warrants
issued in both cases.

The discussion of the Mayoralty candidacy,
caused by the first announcement made by
The Dispatch of S. D. Warmcastle being
a factor in the fight, occupied a large por
tion of the spare time of the local politi
cians yesterday. It was talked ot in all its
bearings, from the time before Mr. Harrison
'had an opportunity to make any Federal
appointments, when Mr. Warmcastle was
talked of as the opponent of Joseph F.
Denniston for City Treasurer, and slated for
the position, to a short time after when the
Mayoralty was placed before him as a
matter for consideration. He did not then
decline either possibility and is thought to
day, although having no designs on the
Treasuryship, to be satisfied with the nomi
nation for Mayor.
Among the reasons given for this is the
probable support to be given by some Dem
ocratic leaders to secure a rakeout for their
friends in the distribution of the local loaves
and fishes, and which is ready to be thrown
either way, as the exigencies of the case may
require. If terms are made on the one side,
it is said H. L Gourley will remain in the
field; and if on the other, Judge Bailey will
be withdrawn, or allowed a chance to write
a polite and statesmanlike letter of declina
tion, in which case J. C. O'Donnell will be
put up to be knifed by his political associ
ciates on account of old grudges originating
in the last mayoralty fight. This is one pro
gramme laid out by different politicians.
Another is that Robert E. Mercer, pres
ent County Commissioner, ought to'receive
the result or tbe promises already made,
and be the nominee of the party, not alone
as being the man who can best concentrate
the Southside vote, at present somewhat
disorganized through the free bridge ques
tion, but as a measure of justice to an old
servant with a clean record.
C. W. Batchellor was next favorably
spoken of as a man who could get the busi
ness and working vote of the city from all
quarters, but who would stand perhaps sec
ond to Mercer as not being so generally
well known among the working people, and
not having the soldier vote, some 25,000
behind him, as a unit.
There was no indication in the statement
of Mr. Warmcrstle's friends that He would
decline the nomination if offered him by
a united party, which, taken in
conjunctions with the alleged positions
of some of the Democratic leaders on the
fence, calculated to bring either of the Re
publican factions, if they continue to exist,
to time, presages an early agreement among
the Bepublican leaders as to the local is
sues, or a defeat for one of them, fighting
against the Democratic indorsement of their

Southsldeare becoming considerably in
terested in. the Mayoralty fight. .They have
slated 'Squire Hoerr, and are in the fight tot
win, if success can be attained by honest,
active efforts. They seem to have struck a
snag by learning, after the 'Squire had
agreed to become a candidate, that bis po
litical friends have nearly all pledged them
selves to support Mr. H. I. Gourley, and
unless Mr. Gourley makes np hh mind to
withdraw from the field, they will have as
extremely bard row to hoe.
"His friends are tied np with Mr. Gourley
and he doesn't want to fight them," said one
of his stanch supporters last evening.
'Squire Hoerr was asked for a statement in
regard to his candidacy; but he had little to
say. He said he was not in a position to say
much. "lam simply resting in tbe hands
of my friends," said he. "But if they suc
ceed in compelling me to be a candidate I
will be out to win, if possible."
An ex-Councilman said he thought Mr.
Hoerr's chances were as good as any of the
others. He is not only popular on the
Southside, but has many fnends in all parts
of tbe city, and it was at their urgent re
quest and not of his own will that he per
mitted his name to be used as a candidate
for the office.
