BARTL'S NARROW ESCAPE.
Went Kown in a Leo Court Cavo Hole.
Tukcn Out With Somo Difficulty-A Dis
Edmund A. Ilartl, the mining engin
eer, nearly lost his life Monday while
directing the work of lining In the cave
In Lee court, between Vino and Olive
He was standing on the pile of enrth
and culm which had been Hushed into
the hole when the mass dropped with
out warning nearly six feet. Engineer
Bartl was sucked down with the fall
until his body wts encased nearly to his
shoulders. Fortunately, he stood about
over the center of the cave with his feet
resting upon a small board. After the
sinking began he retained his footing
on the board, which was checked in Its
descent, although the earth and culm
continued to fall away around the edges
of the hole.
The scene of the cave Is on the east
side of Lee court, between Adams and
Washington avenues, and overlooks the
new high BChool lot. The tenants occu
pying the double dwellings, Nos. 512-514
and 516-518, have moved from the build
ings, which have tipped toward the
yawning hole In the passageway be
tween the two structures. All of yes
terday teams were busily engaged haul

MOW BATTLE WAS FOUGHT.
Heavy Voting Everywhere and hut Little
No more earnest battle was ever
fought in this county than that which
came to a close at 7 o'clock last even
ing. The weather was sharp and cold
making loitering about polling places
anything but agreeable. As a conse
quence very little excitement wus man
ifested in the great majority of election
districts, but this did not Indlcut
apathy on the part of tho citizens, as
the heavy vote polled everywhere
Voting was done generally In a very
business like way. The voter came t(
the polling pluce, deposited his ballot
and then proceeded to attend to usual
Every district In the county wos man
ned by active workers of the different
parties, who did their best to roll u
big majorities for their favorites. Oc
casionally these workers became over
zealous and then trouble ensued. No
disturbances of a very serious nature
however, were reported during the day,
A Dig Morning Vote.
In the Eighth, Sixteenth, Ninth and
Seventeenth wards of this city a bigger
vote was polled during the early hour
of the day than was ever known at a
previous election. The total vote cast
was also exceptionally lurge.
On the West Side the vote also came
out early, but on the South Side tho
Seventh ward and In some of the North
End districts the bulk of the vote was
pulled after 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
At Republican headquarters the mos
encouraging reports were received all
Jay of the progress of the battle
Everywhere throughout the county lie
publicans had rallied nobly to the sup
port of the men who had been so gross
ly reviled by the local organ of the
Democratic party. The campaign o
abuse had also had an opposite effect
from that contemplated, for many life
long Democrats, who love fair piny und
Justice, recorded their votes against the
candidates In whose Interests the mud
slinging campaign wus waged.
Slashing Democratic Candidates.
The officials nt Democratic headquar
ters were kept on tho anxious seat all
day by the reports of trouble that were
wafted In from all parts of the county
Here one candidate was being knifed
and there another. The old factional
lights of the Democratic leaders hod
broken out among their followers and
the campaign managers were In despair,
At Old Forge and Lackawanna Kelly
and Fancy were being slaughtered, It
was said, while reports from Olyphant
told a similar story about these candl
dates, who seemed particularly marked
aut for the vengeance of discontented
In other places Smith was the objeC'
tlonable candidate and In others Schadt
and Koehler suffered. It seemed as the
day waned as If tho carefully arranged
plan of battle was fulling apart every
where and trusted lieutenants were
turned loose In all directions to try and
close up the gaps In the rank
of Democracy. When the 7 o'clock
bell announced that the voting was over
the Democratic leaders were devoutly
Hut Few Disturbances.
When the city polling phices had
closed at 7 o'clock It was the opinion of
the police that fewer ttghts and disturb
ances had occurred than on any pre
vious state and county election day
At Intervals reports were received nt
police headquarters that fights were In
progress and that extra policemen were
needed In certain districts, but In each
case it was found that the rumors were
exaggerated and that good order pre
Tho most troublesome wards to the
police were the Seventh, Elevnth,
Twelfth and Twentieth. In the Seventh
ward, Third district, a dispute arose In
the booth at 6.30 o'clock and the in
terior was not cleared so that tardy
voters could not enter until a half hour
later. Intense excitement and hard
words prevailed, and In the confusion
several unauthorized persons got in
side. The trouble was occasioned by
challenges and only a few votes wer.e
polled between 6.30 and 1 o'clock In
In the Third district of the Eleventh
ward o drunken crowd created consider
able excitement all the afternoon and
the same state of affairs existed In the
several districts of the Twelfth. Blows
were exchanged and many quarrels oc
curred, but no arrests were made and
i : " " -
none of the disturbances affected the
duties of the election officers.
At McHugh's hotel on North Main
avenue, West Side, a discussion arose
yesterday morning and Michnel Mc
Donald, of the Twenty-first ward, drew
a revolver and pointed it at men who
were In the pluce. In his excitement,
the weapon dropped from his hand.
McDonald was turned over to Lieuten
ant Davles and Officer Lowry, who
placed him in the station house.
RECEIVING THE RETURNS.
Scenes at Republican Headquarters Dur
ing the Kvcning.
Republican headquarters in the Trice
building on Washington avenue was
packed to its utmost capacity from 8
o'clock in the evening. Soon after this
hour returns and estimates began to ar
rive from New York city and state and
Massachusetts, and at 10 o'clock the
returns from Lackawanna county came
by telephone and telegraph. Colonel
E. H. Ripple, chairman of the county
committee, had charge of the' arrange
ments of tabulating, the work being
performed by a force of clerks as fast
as each district was heard from.
The crowd which filled the main room
of headquarters spread out into the
hail way and Into the suite of the Cen
tral Republican club. Traveling men
from various sections of the country
were mingled with residents of the city
and county. A coterie of New York
state drummers occupied a number of
front seats and grew Joyful in propor
tion to the Increasing reports of Re
publican gains in the Empire state.
During the early evening hours when
the returns began to come from New
York city and state the good feeling
and jubilation first asserted Itself.
When the United Press message ar
rived containing Hill's conceded major
ity of 100,000 to Morton in New York
state, the applause and shouts were al
most deafening and continued almost
uninterruptedly during the reports of
Republican majorities in New York
A sample of the fun of the evening
was furnished by Mine Engineer Ilartl.
He had a rubber whistle, which, when
Inflated, presented the caricature of a
fat man who collapsed with the escap
ing air. The whistle would be held
aloft and an announcement made like
"This is an English manufacturer."
When the figure collapsed the remark
would be made "This Is an American
manufacturer." This and similar frolic
occupied the Intervals between mes
WHAT THE DEMOCRATS DID.
Ih.,y Received Returns at the Armory an J
Enthused When They Could.
The Democratic county committee re
ceived returns at the armory, which
was well filled, until after midnight.
There was an absence of enthusiasm
and very few of the leading lights of
Democracy graced the occasion with
their presence. As the returns were re
ceived they were tabulated nnd read to
the getherlng by John F. Scragg, E. C.
Newcomb, Frank Ryan and others.
Whenever reports of Democratic
gains anywhere were received there
was an outburst of nppluuse, but the
crushing defeats In New York and other
places had a most depressing effect on
the gathering and the demonstrations
of Joy were never carried to excess.
County Chairman Roche was In the
armory until 11.30 nnd then departed.
At that hour he was confident that
Smith and Durkln were elected and
had hopes for the remainder of the
ticket, at least so he said when Interro
gated by a Tribune reporter.
The returns were so slow In coming In
that the armory gathering became Im
patient and then sleepy and at mid
night many departed for their homes.
They decided to wait until morning and
get exact figures from The Tribune.
At 1 o'clock This morning the com
pilers of returns at the armory still
had hopes, but admitted that It looked
as If the Republican ticket would be
Free Lunch, Music and Women the .Main
If anyone supposed the Prohibition
ists were not going to get any fun, ex
citement or anticipation out of the re
cent campaign, a glance into the tem
perance party's headquarters on Lack
awanna avenue Inst night would have
changed such an opinion. The rooms
on the third floor, over The Fair store,
were crowded all the evening. JIalf the
number present were women.
At 8.30 o'clock Conrad's orchestra ar
rived and furnished the main source
of amusement during the early hours
of the evening, as the Prohibition re
turns did not begin to nrrlve until late.
The messages were received by a West
ern Union operator, who was at his In
strument In an adjoining room. At In
tervals a male quartette sang Prohibi
tion and other airs. A running lunch
of coffee, sandwiches, etc., was fur
nished all comers until 2 o'clock this
The absence of Chnrles L. Hawley,
of Scranton, the cold water candidate
for governor, who was In Philadelphia

compensated by the presence of such
well known temperance enthusiasts as

headquarters In the Jermyn building,
on Lackuwanna avenue. During the
evening many members of the party and
the candidates dropped In and discussed
Incidents of the campaign. All declared
that they were perfectly satisfied with
tho work accmpllsbed.
"I think we have polled at least 1,200
votes," said William Loftus, the Peo
ple's party candidate for sheriff. "That
I consider very good work for a start.
It means that we have changed the re
sult of this election with regard to
some candidates, and are, therefore, the
balance of power. In 1X!IG we will be
heard from hi earnest."
THE TRIBUNE BULLETINS.
Enthusiasm Displayed by tho Thousands
Witnessing the Slercopticort Views.
A huge crowd assembled at Penn
avenue nnd Spruce titreet and watched
with eagerness the publication of the
various results as they were shown
on an Immense screen by the aid of a
Among the early bulletins were the
telegraphic dispatches from New York
which were shown Immediately on ar
rival and elicited great enthusiasm
from the citizens assembled Splendid
ly colored scenes from the war, such as
the battle of Gettysburg, the storming
of Petersburg, etc., were highly inter
esting to the spectators, and the comic
Illustrations formed a pleasant variety,
but the climax was reached when the
local victories were announced and
deafening cheers rent the air, drowning
the apology for Democrat howls, which
were faintly attempted.
The local Republican candidates were
loudly cheered whenever their names
appeared on the canvas and intense
enthusiasm prevailed during the long
hours while the stereoptleon wus man
ipulated. HAYDN EVANS RETURNED.
