The people of what will be Johnstown

HOW IS IT?
An Interesting Question Growing Out of
There grows out of the vote on consol
idation a question that may prove to be
quite interesting before it is settled. It is
this : Will the aggregate vote of all tbe
boroughs or the separate vote of each
borough determine whether it will be In
cluded witbia the new city.
The law relating to the incorporation
of cities of the third class provides :
That cities of the third class shall be charter
ed whenever a majority of the electors of any
town or borough, or of any two or more contig
uous towns or boroughs, situated wltblu tbe
limits of tbe same county and having together
a population ot at least ten thousand, according
to the last preceding united states census,shall
vote at any general election, In favor of the
There is some difference of opinion as
to the construction to be put on this, but
some of cur best lawyers incline to the
idea that the aggregate vote of the bor
- ought voting on the subject, will decide
the mattei. The decision of this ques
tion will determine whether East Cone
maugh aud Franklin will be a part of
| the city or not.
THE BODY OF MR. PETEK RUBRIT7.

Mr. Peter Kubritz, of Franklin bor
ough, was one of the flood victims. He
was about sixty-live years of age. His

Mr. fiubriti's body was recognized by

minutes before 4o'clook he was rewarded

Hurt at the Bluff.
Three Hungarians were seriously hurt at
the bluff yesterday opposite the Wire Mills.
A boulder rolled down upon them where
they were working on the side of the hill,
knocking them to tbe road-bed below.
Drs. John and W. B. Lowman attended
the men, after they had been removed to
their boarding house in Cambria. The
injuries arc not thought to be fatal al
though they are serious.
i FIRM AS A ROCK.
CAMBRIA COUNTY TBCI TO ITS
The Whole County Ticket Kleeted—Tfae
Republicans Mmli-Dtuled and the
Court Home Ours,
At 3A. M. this morning the returns ot
the eleotion yesterday shovr that the
whole Demooratlc county ticket is
elected by comfortable majorities. This
is the first time in the history of the
county that so full and general returns
have been published the morning after
In the District Court the Democracy
have done splendidly, and not one of the
candidates on the Democratic ticket will
have 400 majority against him. This is
a gratifying showing for the Democrats
of this part of the county.
Our unusually full reports from the
other parts of the county, received by
telegraph and the vote published, show
that for an "off year" the Democratic
districts of the North have done very
well. The returns, as published in de
tail, show that the victory is oars,
and that Cambria county is true to its
How They Tated.
It is always interesting to watch an
election when a great deal of scratching
is done. Perhaps, ss far as our county
tieket is concerned, there was never a
more hotly contested canvass than that
which was brought to a close yesterday.
Tickets, without number, and fixed up to
suit every caprice of the voter, were dis
tributed in all the districts by the party
workers. The vote polled in this oity
shows a noticeable falling off en account
of the flood. Of late there has been
much curlbsity to know how the falling
off in the various districte in consequence
of the flood would effect eaoh of the
parties. The largest falling off was in
the First ward of Johnstown, where the
total vote for President last year was 448.
Yesterday the total vote cast there waa
341, sixty being cast for Bigler and 181
for Boyer, while Cleveland had ISI, and
Harrison 317 last year. The falling off
oa the Democratec side there was about
sixty per cent, and the Republican flailing
off was about forty-three per cent., and
the whole falling off about flfly-on* per
cent. All the deorease, however, may
not be due to the flood.

NEWS FROM OTHER STATES.
The political career of William Mahone
baa been forever settled by the political
cyclone that swept the " Old Dominion "
on Tuesday. At first reports made the
majority a modest 20,000, latsr it was
35,000, and now 85,000 it the
i figure at which It is put. It
may go higher. The Legislature, too, is
overwhelmingly Democratic. All this
i means the end of the Republican dream
to capture the mother of Presidents.
In New Jersey Leon Abbott is alocl ed
i Governor by the largest majority that
> any candidate has had in that State for
1 years. The Assembly is Democratic, but
probably the Senate is Republican. The
Prohibition vote in New Jersey was very
In Maryland the situation is gratifying
to the Democrats. Besides a controller
they elected a Legislature of their
own political faith. This insures the
sending of a Democrat to the United
States Senate, to sueeeed Senator Wilson.
Baltimoro is Democratic by over 4,000.
The majority for the Democratic State
ticket is over 10,000.
In Mississippi, where the Democrats
were left without any opposition by the
withdrawal of the Republican ticket
t some weeks ago, there was a clean
Pennsylvania, according to the latest
advices, is Republican by about 05,000.
Evidently there is something wrong in
Pennsylvania politics. The Democrats
might better look for a leader.
Nebraska has given her usual Republi
i can majority of 18,000 or 30.000.

Tlae Australian System of Voting
Proves a Great Sucoeee.
Boston, November 6. — TO-day'e ex
perience has seemed to prove beyond
doubt the success of the Australian sys
tem of voting, and testimony from all
sections of the State is almost unanimous
in its praise. In this city the voting places
have .presented a remarkably quiet ap
pearance, and the scenes therin have, in
many cases, been in marked contrast to
those usually witnessed. Voting has pro
ceded with dispatch, and voters have en
joyed a freedom from the importunities of
ballot distributors that they have never
known before. Very few cases are ra.
ported where instructions as to the
method of voting were necessary, and
practically the only aid requlaed was for
those who come under the law as " by
blindness or other physical disability un
able to mark their ballots."
While voters expressed their pleasure
at boing able to vote without the usual
solicitation in the interest of one candi
date or another, the ward officers were
also delighted at being able to attend to
their duties without being disturbed by
the customary bustle and disturbances
outside the rail.
There was some slight friction caused
by a conflict of opinion with regard to the
duties of precinct and other officers, but
it was insignificant and made but little
trouble. With regard to the ballots
I themselves, there was little or no oom-
plaiDt. From all over the State report*
indicate a very quiet election and a light
vote. Altnough the voting itrelf was
conducted as expeditiously as in former
years, the count was not completed so

REPUBLICAN GAINS IN NORTHERN OHIO.
CLEVELAND, 0., November o.—Unof
ficial returns give Foraker a plurality of
about 3,000 in Cuyahoga county. The
local Republican ticket is elected, with
one or two minor exceptions. Late re
ports from Northern Ohio towns stum
Republican gains. It is generally thought,
however, that these gains will not be
large enough to offset Foraker's losses in
the southern part of tbo State.
In lowa the result is in much doubt,
both parties claiming the State. The
Democrats are the most confident, the
Republicans not having yet lost hope al
together. The latest returns show an
increased Republican less. There were
heavy Democratic gains, owiug to the al
liance of the opposite party with the pro
hibition eause. The Democrats claimthe
