the opposition. The Pauline Hall Opera
company had advertised to appear, and
V. Jenkins wrote a letter to the press,
in which he said; "The character of
Pauline Hall is such us to prevent re
spectable women from associating with
her. I take it that her show is of the
"Black Crook" order, as she belongs to
that gang."
When the company arrived yesterday
O. B. McClelland, Pauline Hull's hus
band, sued Dr. Jenkins for libel and
swore to a warrant for his arrest for
criminal libel.

A Party That I ails In Ability to Manage
the Government -Work Ingmen Who
Voted Their Prejudices In 1802 Vote
Their Patriotism This Year.
Indlanopolls, Ind., Nov. 7.
In response to a request Ueneral Har
rison thus expressed himself regarding
the election yesterday:
"It is the most-extraordinary political
revolution the country has ever wit
nessed. Wherever there was a free bal
lot the vote of confidence given In 1892
to tha Democratic party tlf one was
given) has been re-called and a vote of
final repudiation substituted. The In
coherence of the Democratic party was
revealed the moment power was given
tolt to deal with national affairs. The
Insincerity of its platform makers was
expressed when 'lie It enacted took
place of 'Re It resolved.' For thirty
years party expediency had been sub
stituted by Its leaders for party princi
ples, and expediency had as many faces
as there were congressional districts.
Every eccentric cross current of popu
lar prejudice was followed as if it were
the gulf stream. No position was too
wild or violent for a Democratic mount.
Classes were created and inflamed to
outbreak and disorder. In one state a
debauched currency and in another a
socialism that was near to anarchy
were given a bed. Property, especially
mills and factories, were invested and
assaulted In one section, and in another
trusts were secretly coddled. , ,
"The old Democratic doctrine that
favored the levying of customs duties
to the list of an adequate revenue
was abandoned. A deficiency to be
made good by bond issues or by Inter
nal taxes was preferred to the inci
dental protection that adequate cus
toms duties would give. The sliver
question was dealt with in the most
irresponsible manlier.
"Mr .Cleveland described the situa
tion perfectly when he said to Mr. Wil
son: 'They (the Democracy) are down
cast under the assertion that their
party falls In ulilllty to manage the gov
ernment.' A vast majority of our peo
ple believe in n protective tariff never
so many and never so strongly as now.
They differ as to the rates and siijed
ules, but not us to the principle. They
believe in reciprocity us the first
method of getting foreign markets.
They believe in a progressive and
American foreign policy.
"The worklngmen voted thlr preju
dices in 182, this year they voted their
patriotism und 'their love of home. The
enormous falling off In the Democratic
vote everywhere la no less emphatic In
its meaning than .the majorities. The
great victory secured by the reformers
in New York city ought to have been
mentioned in the Thanksgiving procla
mation perhaps It would If it had come
Sanguine Admirers Think the Present
Democratic Defeat M 111 I uvor His
Chances for Third Term Nomination.
By the United Press.
Washington, Nov. 7. Secretary Hoke
Smith was at the interior department
bright and early this morning. He re
fused, however, to be Interviewed on the
subject of the election.
Assistant Secretary of tho Interior
Sima, of Mississippi, said: " Well, I sup
pose the Democrats needed chastening
at the hands of the people for the way
they had worked at cross purposes in
congress during the past twelve months.
But I did not expect we would receive
such a severe lambasting. Still, Demo
cratic principles remain, with devoted
followers, and I feel sure will attract to
them the great mass of Democrats, who
will rally und unite with the party be
fore 1896."
Commissioner of Patents Seymour, of
Connecticut, had this to say: "This de
feat will lead to a very careful study of
the causes therefor, and will result In
again presenting the question of tariff
reform to the people In 1896. It Is by no
means to be regarded as a permanent
conquest by the Republican party."
A cabinet officer this morning said:
"Who else but Cleveland looms up to
day in the party who can -lead wl(h any
show of success. He Is stronger today
than ever, and the malcontents must
come to him, I do not believe he wants
tho nomination in PiSC. I believe he Is
tired of the presidency, ' but who Is
there to look forward to? At the pres
ent no one but Cleveland."

Ills Costly Drome Doors from Trance a
I Hollow Sham,
By the Unltod Press. :
New York, Nov. 7. The discovery
has been made that Cornelius Vander
bllt was grossly swindled by a French
firm Jn the great bronze doors he had
made for his $3,000,000 mansion,- - The
doors were supposed to be a solid
bronze copy of those made by Iorcnzo
Gilbert, the famous Itnlan sculptor,
400 years ngo for the baptistry of San
Giovanni, In the great cathedral of
Santa Maria del Flore, Florence, the
finest doors ever turned out by an ar
tist. Mr. Vanderbllt sent the doors to Bon
nard's foundry here for some altera
tions, when It Was discovered the doors
were not solid bronze, but were screwed
to a common wooden frume, and then
backed with a thin metal covering. The
wood was weighted with heavy Iron
spikes driven Into It, so that the neces
sary solid bronze weight could be ob
tained. ,
Mr. Vanderbllt was indignant. The
doors coat him 1125,000, but he ordered
solid bronze copies of the San Giovanni
doors from Bonnard, the American
bronze worker, and discarded the
French pair. The new doors will also
cost $125,000.

couple came to New York on their
wedding tour. They went to the Hotel
Imperial and here the llrst trial in Col
onel Bullitt's new married life occurred.
His trunk arrived with the lock torn off
and his diamond shirt stud wus miss
ing. "It was a sparkling fellow and
quite lighted things up, by gad, sir,"
said .Co4onel Bullitt, "and. by gad, sir,
1 propose to llnd out who is responsi
ble." He thereupon put the hotel and
railroad authorities and Home detec
tives at work on the matter.
Colonel Bullitt was a union man dur

and believed In shivery. He was then
In the cotton business in New Orleans
and the people threatened to hang hhn
to a lamp post. A friend asked I he
chief of police If he could protect tho
colonel from such a fate at the hands
of the mob, and the reply was, "I think
I can, sir." The mob then around the
colonel's house numbered 10.000 peo
ple, and the colonel didn't like the
chief's word "think,"- by gad, and left
by the 'evening train for 1,0'ulMvtIle,
'We all had a drink, sir." said tho
colonel, "and by the almighty jingo,
sir, I was on my way north at 9 o'clock
that night, sir."
Colonel Bullitt is a believer In the es
tablished social customs of the south,
includjng a proper appreciation of line
old Kentucky whisky, and when he wus
in New York had lost none of tho power
of discrimination regarding the bever
Colonel Bullitt's fortunes were sadly
crippled by the war, but he retained
enough, ho proudly said while on his
second honeymoon, to live like a gen

granddaughter of ex-Sheriff Fleming
Smith, whu was found Thursday morn
ing entombed In a hollow log half dead,
has partially recovered, and there are
hopes of her recovery. She has told n
startling story of the crime. She Bays
she was not assaulted, but nttempted
to take her own life.
"Becoming discouraged," she saUl. "I
decided to end my existence. I came
to this decision when I was returning
home Tuesday afternoon after a visit
with my mother. I entered the woods,
and having nothing better to use de
elded I would knock my brains out
with a stone. 1 laid down on the ground
and placed my head on a boulder and
with another stone beat myself on the
head. 'The stone found on the ground
covered with hair and blood was the
one I used. I found this was a poor
way of taking my life. After I had
struck my head twice I grew weak,
and the stone dropped from my hand.
In a half conscious state I crawled un
der a tree about 100 yards distant,
where 1 lay for two nights unable to
move. About 8 o'clock Thursday morn
lug I crawled into a log, where ' I
thought I would be left to die." i
The searching party located Mrs.

the wound in her head.

of Ren Clendenln, charged with mur
dering J. Davis near Montgomery, Aug.
9, resulted yesterday In his being con
victed of murder in the first degree.

of a conspiracy on the part of the
miners who took part in the battle with
Wyunt's men at Kagle during the strike
there last March. Many men wre
wounded and Dr. Davis was their phy
sician.. They feared his testimony
