From the Daily Gazette and
Jivlletin, Dated Nov. 20th, 'B9.
Superintendent Westfall returned
from Montgomery about ten o'clock
last night. lie stated that two
spans of the temporary portion of
the bridge had gone out, and that
arrangements had been made with
the Reading Company, whereby tbi
passenger traffic would not be in
terrupted. Passengers will be
transferred at Sunbury to the Read
ing road, the tracks of that compan\
being used to Montgomery, and
from theie the company's own tracks
would be used. Superintendent
Westfall also stated that the indi
cations pointed to a twenty-two foot
flood by morning.
The trestle portions of the Market
street bridge withstood the heavy
strain until a quarter past eleven
o clock, when it toppled over into
the stream. A big hurrah went up
at the same time from the throats of
many persons on the South Side.
•Just why they should hurrah over a
nmttter of that kind puzzled manv
persons on this side of the river.
1 lie Oil 1 look For Htnllui Reform
The action 0/the County Demo
cracy organization of New York
City in declaring emphatically in \
favor of ballot reform is one of the i
most significant signs in the battle
for purer elections. It will strentgh-'
en the hands of the advocates of the
Australian system of voting and aid
greatly in the third effort which will
be made the coming Winter to se
cure a ballot reform law for New!
York, Mr. Charles T. Saxton, whoj
had charge of the bill which Gover
nor Hill vetoed this year, has al-'
ready announced his intention 01
again introducing his measure in
New York Senate, to which body j
the Republicans elected him last
Hut it is not in New York alone
that expressions in favor of the
Australian system are coming from
unexpected sources. The smooth
working of the method in Mas-!
sachusetts has convinced many
doubters of its practicability. The
chief objection the Democrats have
had to it was the fear that it might
reduce their party vote. Such an
objection is a manifest confession !
that the means that they have em
ployed to carry elections are not
above reproach. Rut they imagine;
that they see in the increased
Democratic vote in Massachusetts!
a proof that their fears are ground
less. Whether they judge rightly i
or not, every Republican will con-1
eider a removal of Democratic ob
struction to ballot reform a full
compensation for the reduced part} !
majority in Massachusetts lasti
With this brightened outlook, it j
it is to be regretted that owing to
biennial legislative sessions only a
comparatively few Legislatures will j
meet this Winter. Eleven Legisla-j
tures in the old states will be in!
session, six of which are Northern I
and five are Southern states. Two i
of these states, Massachusetts and'
Rhode Island, have ballot reform
laws already. The help of the
County Democracy in New York I
may bring enough assistance to the
Republicans to override Governor
Hill's opposition in that state.
Governor-elect Abbett, of New
Jersey was forced during the re
cent canvass to take an attitude fav
orable to some method of reform,
and the result may be an envelope
law something like that in force in 1
Connecticut. A bill was lost in
Ohio last. Winter but it is not im
probable that one will pass next
Winter, and in lowa the signs are
especially promising for si mi liar
The Southern states in which bal
lot reform laws are possible are ,
-Maryland Kentucky. The Balti- ,
more Sm, has begun already to urge
the adoption of the Australian
system in the first state, and the
success which has attended its np-L
plication in Loui»viile tnay lead to' <
its extension to flu; ~/iolc of tlieL
second state. There nro five states,
then, in which ballott reform laws
uiay be adopted the coming Winter.
There are nine states which have
idopted the Australian system al
ready, if Connecticut's law is to be
classed under that Lead. If five
states take favorable action on
ballot reform bills next year one
i hird of the states in the Union will
then have adopted the system.
Some a? the new states may also
arrange themselves 011 the side of
the same reform. The favorable
expressions heard from states in
which Australian bills were rejected
last Winter make it certain that
favorable action will be taken in
some of them in 1891, when nearly
all the Legislatures are in session.
If Sullivan an McCaffrey are in
doubt what place to choose for their
proposed encounter we do not see
why they should not select Missis
sippi. To be sure, there was a little
fuss made there about the Siillivan-
Kilrain affair, but then the pugibsts
were not prevented from lighting to
a finish and though Sullivan was
' found guilty of an offense against
the state by a Mississippi jury he is
still at large and free to enter into a
conspiracy to commit a like breach
of the peace in any jurisdiction that
seems unlikely to interfere with his
desire to pound and be pounded for
the sake of glory, prize money and
a belt.
The appointment by Governor
lieaver of Colonel William Livsey
to fill the unexpired .term of the
late State Treasurer Hart is an ex
cellent one. The appointment was
an unexpected one. No new duties
will be imposed upon Mr. Livsey
by the assumption o( the duties of
State Treasurer, for ever since the
illness of the late Captain Halt he
has been the responsible head of
this department. Colonel Livsey
is eminently fitted for the place, as
he has already demonstrated upon
two previous occasions, when he was
selected for State Treasurer once by j
the people and afterwards by the j
Executive, to fill the vacancy created ,
by the election of Mr, Quay to the ;

ST. LOUIS. NOV. 14.—Detectives
to-day arrested the celebrated funer
al thief, who has been operating
here with great success for two
months. Duriug that time he has
i stolen SSOOO in cash aud jewelry
j from homes where funerals were in
j progress.
There has always been noticed
; among those who attended to mourn
with the brcaved, one whose suit
; was of a little more sombre black,
| whose grief was just a trifle more
i pronounced and whose melancholy
! countenance bore a look of deeper
woe than any of the other mouners
present. During the demonstra
i tions of grief and the solemn cei
| monies the man would receive but
; passing notice, and he was consider
ied as one well acquainted with tue
I deceased. Unlike most of the
mourners present, he always de-
I clined with thanks any invitation to
! follow the body to the
I grave, and would disappear at about
j the time the services were over and
I casket was being taken from the
I boupp.
| When the breavedfamily returned
to the house of mourning, however,
they invariably discovered that from
basement to garret drawers were
thrown open, closet doors ajar and
every article of value that had been
there was missing. Altogether
more thnn thirty robberies have
been reported, and in many cases
where detectives attended the fu
nerals the houses were robbed while
the officers were on the premises.
This morning the solemn thief
was captured in the house of Mrs.
Hare, on Mound Street, just after a
funeral. The officers had concealed
themselves in the house. Ile gave
his name as Paul Barton. He wore
diamonds and a gold watch and
carried a complete burglar's kit. lie
will now have a chance to attend
the funeral of his own freedom.
froliihitioii In lowa.
Few were prepared for so speed v
an overthrow of Prohibition in the
State of lowa as now seems inevit
able. A short time ago a large
majority of the people of that State
were in favor of giving Prohibition
a trial, and the Republican party,
ever willing to obey the behests of
the people, enacted all the legisla
tion that was necessary to carry out
popular sentiment 011 the subject.
The constantly declining Republi
can majorities was the uninigtake
able evidence that a re-actiou Lad
set in, and that the people were
rapidiy lending in an anti-Prohibi
tion direction. The crash came
sooner than was exj ected. The
Republicans had as their candidate
for Governor a man who was pro
nounced in favor of maintaining t'lf
Prohibition laws- the Democrats
had as their candidate for Governor
one who openlv advocated the re
peal of the Prohibition laws and
the substitution of high license.
The issue was squarely made and
110 other question was given prom
inence in the campaign. The anti-
Prohibition Democratic candidate
is elected Governor by 8,000 majori
ty, while some of the Kopublican
candidates for other State ollices are
elected by ten thousand majority.
That telle, very clearly, the story of
In the elections for members of
the legislature the same result fol
lowed. A!any pronounced Republi
can Prohibitionists were defeated in
districts which have heretofore been
strongly in favor of Prohibition.
Democratic candidates for Senator
and Representative, who were open
lj - against Prohibition were elected
m heretofore strong Republican
districts. A transition has occured
in Iowa; an anti-Prohibition Gover
nor and an anti-Prohibition majori
ty in the legislature is the result.
The Prohibition laws will be repeal
ed and high license will besub'titut-i
ed. The peoplo of lowa have so
decreed at the ballot-box, after
having given Prohibition a trial,
and the will of the majority must bo
respected. lowa has practically
ceased to be a Prohibition State.

A fearful accident happened
j last Tuesday 011 the job of
j Den Daniels, who is stocking the
i Jennings Bros. mill. llis most
j valuable team was killed by u falling
tree while standing to have the
! grabs pulled from the log they had
just drawn to the skid way. The
team-ster did not see the falling tree
until nearly upon them, and barely
escaped death himself. One horse
was instantly Killed and the other
survived in agony a few hours.

Mr. John Lawrence, of Dusnore,
accompanied by his son Howard J
were among the arrivals in town on
Friday. Mr. Lawrence wus sur
prised in finding that one day was
unsuffieient togo through our town,
and will return to see the remainder
when the days grow longer.
Oh Gallagher! its deplorable, but

complishing what our "oldest in
habitance" can not achieve. Are we
justified in this statement "peaches?

with a rattle headed young man

from the country about fowauda.
lie claims to be the most unique
figure that steps up to chalk the
cue and commands attention where
ever he can obtain it. But as vet
has not made any good impression.
He was dismissed from the link a
few days ago with but little cerc
monuy, an his presence in manv
of our business places is not greatly
desired. He carries an open jack
knife in his pocket for the boys and
takes clear liall—that's the kind of a
clothes pin he is.
Ou Thursday last all the mill
hands ol Kipps had a narrow es
cape from an accident while at work
in the mill. The governor stem by
some means went wrong and the
result of it was, the engine ran away
with all the machinery. Pieces of
pullics and strips of belting flow
promiscuously,through all parts of
the mill. And before the steam
could be controlled there WUB Uo t a
pulley in the mill. A shaft thirty
feet long measuring five hfches in
dimnuter was twisted in all shapes,
and timber Bxlo were shriveled in
atoms, but strange to say not a man
was injured in the least-*
