Ambassador Thomas F. Bayard, speaking today about Tuesday's election, said:" I have had grave apprehension as to the re- suit of the recent elections for some time. It was by no means an absolute surprise to me." The nmbassador said that he had no idea that the change of power was lasting or even meant to be lasting. "I do not want to run afoul of those gentlemen who were responsible for the delay lh tho passage of the tariff bill, but, as I say, the path of duty Is unmistakable, and the necessity for pure Democratic tariff legislation was jiever so great as it is now. The bills for free raw materials should be passed immediately, and then the country will be able to contemplate the Democratic idea of the tariff In full working order for two years before another natlonn election rolls around. If this is done, I have little fear that the verdict will be satisfactory in 1SH." Ambassador Bayard sails from New York early next Tuesday morning for Knglaud.

The afternoon pa pers of this city contluue the comments upon the recent elections In the United States, The Westminster Gazette says: "While McKlnley has triumphed and Wilson has been defeated, tho decision of West Vlrjclnla vmust be a source of great regret to many Englishmen. Wil son Is a man of high character and broad Views, and his non-success is a distinct loss to congress." The Globe remarks: "The main cause of the Democratic collapse was the pit iable weakness displayed by that party Civer tariff reform. The Republicans will make a profound mistake if they Interpret their astounding victory as a triumph of protection. What It does represent is the indignation and disgust of a great and resolute national being half ruined by feebleness and incapac ity in high places." The Pall Mall Gazette says: "Wil son, who fougnt tor tne poor man most allantly, has gone under In the Ren al, undiscrimlnaling Indignation, but the tariff stands where it did and Mc Klnleyism la a forgotten superstition. in a certain way, we may assume Unit the work is dune. Senator Hill as a Democrat, but President Cleve land is well quit of him. Ills defeat Is absolute, and let us hope that It is permanent." HATS OFF TO MK. PEFIER. The Populist Scnutor Liable to Hold the llalunoe of Power. By the United Press. Washington, Nov. S. Senator Faulk ner, chairman of the Democratic con- resslonnl campaign committee, is in- lined to the opinion that the Republi cans will be able to control the next sen- te if they get the vote of Mr. Peffer, even without North Carolina or Ten nessee. The Republicans gain three members in the senate, now represented by one senator Montana, Wyoming nd Washington. This brings the total up to forty-one.

The single vote of Mr. Peffer makes tho total forty-live, majority of the whole senate, based upon the full membership of eighty- eight votes. Mr. Peffer has generally adulated with the Republicans, and the Demo crats nre probably not amiss In assum- ug that he will vote with them on this occasion. OHJECTE1) TO HOLMAN.

President Powers, of the Eastern league, was in the city today, and, after a conference with President FlHinklln, of the Buffalo club, and two representatives of the proposed new Rochester club, lie left for New York. It is almost certain that Rochester will be well represented in the Aistern league next season, and the two applications for a franchise for that city will undoubtedly be considered at the annual meeting of the league. Wednesday President Powers was In Toronto feeling the Canadian base ball pulse, and he found it beating very strongly in favor of international diamond struggles.

TRAINMEN mportant Case of Interest to Mem- bers.of Railroad Societies, GENERAL 0LXEY TAKES A HAND lie Holds That as the Heading Road Is Now in the Control of tho Court, Ke ecivers Have no Right to Force , Hands to Quit Brotherhood. Ey the United Press. Philadelphia, Nov.' 8. The fight which the Reading railroad receivers have begun to force their employes to renounce all allegiance to the Brothehood of Trainmen, or else re tire from their present employment, as sumed national importance and inter est today. The case came up under argument before Judge Dallas in the United States circuit court in this city, upon the Brotherhood's appeal to the court to prevent the receivers, as ofll- ers of the court, from driving the rninmcu out of their order or else out of work. In this connection a letter of advice from United StatesAttorney iTeneralOl- ney, taking sides with the. men anil against the leceivers, was presented and was finally submitted by counsel for the trainmen as a part of his argu ment in their behalf. Upon this point Lawyer Samuel Dickson, an attorney for the Reading receivers, attacked the attorney gen eral severely for what he termed an un warranted and utterly unprecedented outside Interference with a case on argument and awaiting decision In a court of justice. Before permitting Attorney General Olney's letter to be submitted even as a part of the argument of Lawyer Mon tague, of Washington, D. C, for the trainmen, Judge Dallas explained that he had received, but had not yet reud, a copy of the letter and would not do so until it should come before him as part of the proceedings. Argument in the case was finished today and Judge Dallas will render his decision in a few days. .Mr. Olney's Letter. , Mr. Olney submits that the receivers of the road are wrong in this policy. He expresses a belief that Mr. Harris evidently forgets that the road Is not In control of the company Itself, but In the hands of the court. He put the question as being: "Will the court now lay down, the rule that members of the Brotherhood of Trainmen shall, because they are such members, be discharged from the service of the road." He says it cannot be ruled that there is no such thing as a legal strike. He reviewed the company's rule from the standpoint of business expediency, upon which the court would have to pass. This, he said, Involved the right of labor to organize for the settlement of differences. Any action by the court,' he said, might work mischief and unfair confi dence In the Impartiality or capacity of the Judiciary. He said that the mls- chb l' i-pprehended was probably in the future. In summing up he said the rule is of doubtful value as a Btrike preventative, and when the court is the employer, It is positively Injurious in engendering dlsaffectlons. LIKE A TALE BY DUMAS. Mysterious Sailors Visit Florida and Pig l'p Hurled Treasure. By the United Press. St. Augustine, Fla., Nov. 8. A large foreign rigged sloop was sighted off the coast about sunset last Sunday night and twice since that. She has come into the harbor and a portion of her crew came ashore; but only for a few minutes. They were Spaniards appar ently, but they spoke to nobody. Last night ten of them came ushore with picks, shovels, crowbars, etc., aud dug up a large iron chest, supposed to be filled with treasure, on the Old Christ oval property, bounded by the Hospital Charlotte, Fravo and Bridge - streets, Mrs. Roddick, who lives on the prem ises, not knowing what the men were didng, appeared with a shot gun and drove them oft, but not until they had loaded the box, which required several men to carry It, into a vehicle. No trace of the men, who were under a gray-bearded leader, can be found- nothing but some old pottery,' an Iron hook and one silver coin was left by them. The sloop left at daylight for the south. She Is supposed to have carried tho party to Santo Domingo, where the heirs of the original owner of the prop erty, Davlne, lives. A magnolia tree planted by the mother of Mrs. General Blake seventy years ago was taken for bearings to the location of the buried treasurer, which the party seemingly understood. All their measurements lie fore they began digging were tuken from this tree. LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT. Tho Meaning of Thanksgiving Pay Is Ex plained to College Students. By the United Pres3. Easton, Pit., Nov. 8. As there will be no foot ball game between Princeton and Yale In New York city on Thanks giving Day, this year, the managers of the Held have been making un effort for a game to be played on that day be tween the Lafayette college and Brown university teams. The Hludents of Lafayette favored such a gnme, but the faculty would not permit It, President W'arfleld explaining that Thanksgiving Day, having been set apart by the civil authorities as a day for the public recognition of tho goodness of God to our country, and having for many years been conse crated to the purpose, and as a family festival, it is highly improper that a collego founded for the education of youth in tho principles of good morals should do anything to lower the tra ditions or undermine the public regard for such a duy.

THE VANDERB1LT DIVORCE A Monetary Adjustment Said tu Have been Made SHE IS TO GET THKEE MILLION William K.'s Generosity-tod Given Great Deal to the Smith Girls-Tho Wife's Suit Will Not Be Opposed by tho Husband. By the United Press. New York, Nov. 8. Upon good authority It is reported here than an arrangement has been made between Mr. and Mrs. W'llllam K. Vanderbllt by which the wife will get her divorce and something like $3,000,- 000. She Is now in Newport, where she will continue to live until she acquires the legal residence necessary to procure a divorce. There appears to be no doubt that she In! ends to sue for divorce, and it Is said Mr. Vanderbllt will not con- tost the suit. . - -'. . .-.'. W. K. Vanderbllt, who Is now in Europe, Is expected to arrive here the latter part ot this month, or the first of December. Business Is responsible for Mr. Vanderbilt's coming to New York. An intimate friend of the Vanderbllt family who Is in a position to know of the affairs of W. K. Vanderbllt said to day: "It is no secret that Mrs. Vanderbllt will seek a divorce from her husband and It h:s for some time been known that the conditions upon which the pro ceeding would "be taken have been under consideration for some time past. Mrs. Vanderbllt at first asked for an ' annuity of $300,000. She has Anally agreed to accept $3,000,000 outright. I do not believe Mr. Vanderbllt will defend a suit for divorce no matter what allega tions may be made. The sympathies of the Vanderbllt family are entirely with William K. In this matter. Mrs.' Vanderbllt was never a favorite In thq family, and since the cruise of the W. K. Vanderbllts In the steam yacht Va llant the Vanderbllt family have not been on friendly terms with her. Quiet Divorce Proceedings. Parties who claim to be familiar with the case Intimate that the divorce pro ceedings will be conducted as quietly as possible, and that W. K. Vanderbllt, wanting a divorce himself, would not oppose his wife's action. Mrs. Vanderbllt is now occupying "Marble House," the magnificent man sion which her husband built, fur nlsl d and gave to her. The building cos) Jabout $1,000,000, and the furnlsh- lnrf about $1,000,000 more. The ar- rai tements maue ror the settlement be veen the separated couple were con ducted by William Jay, and are said to be satisfactory to both parties. Mrs. Vanderbllt returned to this country from Europe a little over a month ago, after a somewhat sensa tloual separation from her husbund in Paris. They went abroad on Mr. Van derbilt's yacht, with a small party of friends. After several quarrels they went to Paris, and there It was reported that Mr. Vanderbllt began to uppeur In public with Nelly Neustretter, a notori ous woman, who formerly lived in tills country, but was then reigning as queen of a certain kind of society In the French capital. William K. Vanderbllt Is now 44 years of age and one of the richest men In the world. He married Miss Alvah Smith when she was i!6 years old. She was the daughter of a Mobile, Ala., merchant who came to New York and entered society. Tho Smiths were not rich, but tho daughters of the family were all beauties. One of the girls waB married to Fernando Yznaga, from whom Bhe procured a divorce, and then was mar ried to Mr. Tiffany. Another, Miss Minnie Smith, is now the wife of a poor Fronch nobleman. The youngest sister Is unmarried and is living with Mrs, Vanderbllt. ; William K. Vanderbllt was exceed ingly generous to his wife's relatives, having made them many coBtly pres ents. The Vanderbllt family, is is un derstood, do not sympathize with Mrs, Vanderbllt, and on her arrival in this country the last time no one was at the steamship pier, to meet her.' She pro ceeded to the Grand Central station from the pier in a (fired carriage and went immediately to Newport. . TROUBLE ABOUT A KISS, An Ohio Mayor t'ndcr Arrest on a Some whut Peculiar Charge.

De Witt Talmago with the Brooklyn tabernacle has been formally severed.
