Which Way to Vote Not a Demo

Citizens Have Had a Sufficiency

convention which nominated Mr. Mor

n number of the districts in northern
New York, and in consultation with
party leaders in that state, which ren
ders his opinion upon the political
situation valuable.
"1 think it is very doubtful if tho
Democrats will be able to oarry a
single congressional district north of
Harlem Bridge," said Mr. Hooker to
dny. "As to the situation in Now
York city and Brooklyn I am not so
well informed, but we will surely
csrry twenty out of the twenty-four
districts north of Harlem river. There
is a possibility that Lockwood may
save bis district for the Democrats,
bat I would not be surprised to see the
Republicans carry it.
"The Republicans of the state are
united. This was demonstrated at the
recent convention in Saratoga, and I
have never seen a more enthusiastic or
harmonious gathering of Republieans.
On the other hand the Democrats are
disorganized, there is a great deal of
dissatisfaction among them, and there
is no concealing the fact that they are
disheartened at the ontloek before
them. Mr. Flower would have liked
very well to have bad a re-election,
bat be felt that idefeat confronts the
Democratic party, and he would not
risk it.
'"The effects of the tariff bill are be
ginning to be fait already in northern
New York. Even at this early date the
farmers are feeling the ruinous compe
tition which the new tariff law brings
with Canadian products. The item of
bay alone is a very considerable one in
northern New York. There has been
a very short hay crop this year, and
accordingly tho farmers should get
a good price, but instead they Lave to
meet the Canadian crop right in the
(Buffalo market, which is the market
for all the rest of New York. Cana
dians have been expecting this and they
saved their hay to rush it iu under the
new law. The farmers are feeling the
effects of the law on other products
and Democratic tariff reform ia coming
home to them with a vengeance.
''The workingmen, of course, are
Buffering also by lack of employment
and by very low' wages when they do
get work. The manufacturers aredf ing
their best to keep up and to give work
to their men, but they are having a
hard struggle. The result of all this
will be, therefore, that the Republicans
will not only largely increase their ma
jority at the coming election, but
that they will oarry many Demoeratio
diatrlcts as well."
At present there are five Democratic
congressman from New York, outside
of Kings, Queens and New York coun

which escaped from wounds in bis
neck. The woman's lips and the lower

her life by swallowing a quantity of
carbolio acid.
From the appearance of the man's
lips he also had evidently taken some
of the acid, but not enough to dispateh
him. In bis agony, and probably with
a view to putting an end to his suffer
ing, he bad jabbed himself in the neck

found beside him, the blades covered
with blood.
The wounds made by the scissors
were dangerously near the jugular vein.

that the Japanese had lost no ships at

reoltlng the circumstances of the but

at four vessels sunk and one burned,
and says tbe Japaness fleet was com
paratively uninjured. The enthusiasm
among all classes in Japan is stated to
be vory great. The dispatch adds that
tbe Empress of Japan, as ehief pat

country, is psrsonnliy engaged daily
with her court ladies in preparing
bandages, liuts, etc., for the wounded
Chinese as well as Japanese engaged
in the recent great battles of Ping

London. Sept. 21 Captain John
Inglis, late naval adviser of Japan,
commenting npou the naval battle
fought betweon China and Japan off
the month of the Yalu river, in an in
terview today, said:
"The first point which is attracting
naval attention is tho great mistake the
Chinese committed in not i following
Captain Maban's fundamental rnlo not
to bug tbe shore, At once after sight
ing tbe Japanese it was Admiral Ting's
business to bring his ships into action,
knowing that if he engaged in a serious

The Chronicle this morning points
ont that the dook-yards of Japau are
far superior to those of China, aud that
therefore her damaged vessels will be
much quicker repaired. This will give
her a distinct advantage in the future.
It is safe to forecast also that the
Uunanes army landed by the trans
ports on the Korean side of the Yalu
river will surrender in a body after a
short and ferooious defense. The
psper adds that it the war continues
at the present rate China will soon be
compelled to ask terms of peace.
The Times this morning, comment
ing on the Jnp.tuese advance on Wlju
and the probability of their going
thenee to Mukdeu, says that the lattur
place would be accepted throughout
the empire as an omeu that the em
peror is unworthy of divine protection,
and that such omens iu days ot disas
trous war are too often fulfilled with
remarkable celerity. As tbe politicians
about the court are perfectly aware of
the consequences that would fellow the
fall of Mukden, it may be assumed
that tbey would yield to almost any
demands rather than to run any seri
ous risk of suoh a oatastropbe.
