Many Ohio Democrats Want to Kill
Protection Before Tackling Silver.
Alienates Largo Element in the Buckeye
Democracy Which Is Not Vet Ready
to Swallow I'rco Silver Coin,
oge Other Political News.
Special to the Seranton Tribune.
Columbus, O., Oct. 21.
AVhen young Allen Thurman foisted
Ms free silver plank on the Democrats
of Ohio they didn't say much, but they
did some tall thinking. That action
put many of the Democratic candidates
for congress In a very embarrassing po
sition. Tom Johnson and Mr. Outh
walte, after voting for the bill repeal
ing the Bilver purchasing act, and put
ting themselves on record repeatedly as
being opposed to the free coinage of sil
ver, find themselves placed abruptly,
and with no opportunity for protest,
upon a free sliver platform. Anti-free
Bilver Democrats and the anti-free sil
ver press are swallowing their Indigna
tion for the most part during the cam
paign. After the campaign Is over there will
be, no doubt, a very general and very
free expression of opinion by the Dem
ocrats and Democratic press opposed to
free silver. The German Democratic
press in the state Is not refraining now
from expressing its dissatisfaction with
Chairman Thurman's course. Chair
man Thurman has had an enormous
number of copies of his free silver cir
cular printed and forwarded them to
the county committee chairmen for dis
tribution as campaign literature. They
have not found in every instance a
warm welcome.
Chairman Byron Rtilwcll of the
Holmes county committee returned the
whole shipment to Chairman Thurman,
with the curt mote that while the
Holmes county Democrats were mostly
in favor of free silver, when the time
came to advocate it, they thought the
main issue was still the tariff question,
and they proposed to fight that matter
to a finish before taking up any other
Republicans Will Also Meet Strannhan's
Attempt on the Judiciary.
Special to tho Seranton Tribune.
Philadelphia. Oct. 21. As a result ot
the conference of Republican lenders
and the state committee at Philadel
phia yesterday, effort will be concen
trated on the doubtful congressional
districts, the desire being to hnve a
solid Republican delegation from Penn
sylvania If possible. While It is prob
able the delegation cannot be made
solid, yet It is possible the Republicans
may get 28 out of the HO.
The developments In the Third dis
trict, Philadelphia, leave little doubt of
the election of Frederick Halterman,
Republican, as the successor of Me
Aleer. Tho withdrawal of the Re
publican candidates. Shannon and.Am
onson, of the Third and Fourth legis'
tive districts, makes it clear the "Pe
sylvania Democracy" Intends to re
venge McAleer's defeat by voting for
Halterman, the Republicans in return
voting for the McAleer legislative
candidates agninst theHarrltyites. Tho
Harrlty men have followed Singerly
example, thrown up their hands and
admitted McCullen's defeat by Halter
man. Another decision of the conference
was to give aid to several Judicial
candidates who are being harassed by
opposition within the party and by the
active interference of the Democratic
state committee.
He Is Confident tho Next House Will Bo
Safely Republican.
Special to the Seranton Tribune.
Washington, Oct. 21. Chairman Bab
cock, of the Republican campaign com
mittee, figures confidently on the elec
tion of litO Republicans to the next
house, or a majority of twenty, which
is exactly what the Democrats are
flgutlng on for their side. The chair
man of the Republican campaign com
mittee estimates that the party will
make material gains in New York, and
claims at least two members from
Brooklyn, Between Brooklyn and New
York he thinks the Republicans will
gain five. He figures on two Republi
cans from Louisiana, and possibly
three. New Jersey, he thinks, will cer
tainly show Republican gains, and
Kansas, In his opinion, is as safely Re
publican as Pennsylvania. Several Re
publicans are expected from West Vir
ginia, together with a legislature that
will curtail Senator Camden's official
He concedes that the Democrats will
hold the Benate until 1S96, and is con
tent to rest his claim on the same Re
publican representation In that bodv
as at present. He believes that the dis
content in the north against Demo
cratlc misrule will more than offset
the advances the Populists may make
in tne soutn.
Senator Quay Says Hastings' Majority Is
Entirely Problematical.
By the United Press.
Philadelphia, Oct 21. "No one can
make an Intelligent estimate of the Re
publican majority In Pennsyvanla this
fall," was the terse remark of United
States Senator M. S. Ouav at the Strat
ford hotel when asked to name the fig
ure by which General Hastings would
be elected. When pressed for his views
on the situation In the Keystone state
ne said:
"Giving figures on the probable Re
publican majority In Pennsylvania this
year Is largely guess work, and for that
reason unsatisfactory. The conditions
are auch that there Is nothing upon
which an intelligent estimate can be
Dasea. The one thing certain is that
the vote will be extremely large. I
feel that every Republican in the state
who Is able to do so will go out and
vote the straight Republican ticket.
Quite a number of Democrats, In fact
Bhoals of them, will vote for Republi
can candidates and Republican prin
ciples. Other Democrats, who are dis
gusted with their party, but who do not
care to vote the Republican 'ticket,
will stay at home and not vote at all."
ThoTWcst Virginian's Kncc9 Arc Loudly
Knocking Together.
Special to the Seranton Tribune.
Washington, Oct 21, Congressman
Alderson, of West Virginia, was at
Democratic headquarters Saturday ur
gently demanding help. To Senator
Faulkner and other Democratic friends
Mr. Alderson candidly admitted that
defeat stared him in the face unless
heroic measures were adopted.
This was disagreeable news to the
Democrats, as Mr. Alderson's election
was considered to be the only one cer
tain in West Virginia. But if his de
feat is likely, then there Is but little
prospect for any of the candidates In
that state. .

Chinese Account of the Engagement at

The Flower of the Chinese Troops Plucked

China Is Xow Open Peace May
Bo Looked for.
By the United Press.
San Francisco, Oct. 21.
The steamer City of Pekin, which ar
rived from the Orient this morning,
brings the following additional advices
to those received by the steamer Aus
tria yesterday. The correspondent of
the China Gazette telegraphs his paper
as follows In reference to the battle at
Ping Yang:
"I reached the front In time to record
the first serious fighting between the
opposing armies, which had been lying
opposite to each other for several days.
The Chinese were well entrenched in
Syenchong, Samdoung and Chunghwa,
but most strongly of all at Ping Yang,
where 20,000 of their best troops occu
pied a most advantageous position.
"On Oct. 15 the Japanese main army
after crossing the river on the previous
day, advanced and a general attack
was made upon the chief Chinese
stronghold, the last one in Korea. The
Jepanese, who fought with splendid de
termination and gallantry, won a com
plete victory. The siege lasted nearly
all day and night of Oct. 15.
Of 20.000 nicked Chinese troops who
formed the garrison, many iied before
the enemy entered the town. Among
these captured was General Tso. The
Japanese loss In killed and wounded
was about 300. No estimate has yet
been made of the Chinese loss. The
road to China is now open.
Washington, Oct. 21. A telegram
was received at the Japanese delega

In the house of lords in which he ex
plained at length the causes of the war
between Japan and China. During the
course of his speech he read the corre
spondence which had passed between
the Japanese and Chinese governments
before diplomatic negotiations were
suspended and war was declared.
The feeling of the diet appears to be
unanimous In approval of the course
pursued by the government. The two
houses on Oct. 20 passed by an unani
mous vote the bills Introduced by the
government relating to war expendi
tures which involved a total sum of
150,000,000 yen.
