For Only $5. Vol. Xix no. 46.Boston, tuesday morning. November it. 1891. Price five Kansas election was a a Triumph of Abram Dewitt charges Louisiana with bribery tax reduction matters of interest to All interested in the nation. Topeka ran. Nov. 13.�?the result of the political contest which closed in Kansas on the night of nov. 3 has already been Felt in commercial circles throughout this state. While it was a Republican Victory it was a Triumph of reason Over non reason and a rebuke to the leaders of the people s party who have sought to gain political Power by defamation of the Stato and by publishing broadcast the misfortunes that have Over fatten our people and Over which they had no control. Incidents occurred on the principal streets of Topeka and in Othor cities and towns of the state the Day after election which were never witnessed in any other state of the Union. Leading republicans and democrats rejoiced alike Iii the defeat of the Alliance party. They would grasp each others hand and congratulate themselves and the state Over the downfall of the common enemy. The democrats got very Little out of the election but they rejoiced that the other Fellows who bad swallowed up the biggest end of the country democracy should be downed. It was a fair and Square tight against the calamity party and the calamity howlers. The Good name and credit of the state was at stake and to maintain it thousands of democrats quietly voted the Republican ticket to heat the Alliance and thousands of republicans As willingly voted for democratic judges to defeat the Fellows who declared that Quot the rights of the user were Paramount to the rights of the owner. Rarely has such a Campaign been made by tile republicans of Kansas in a presidential year. The fact is. It was never necessary before. Last year the Alliance and Peoples tarty had the crowds at their barbecues and picnics hut this year the enthusiasm was with the republicans. Great demonstrations were made in a very county in the state and the last week of the Campaign was devoted to Republican love feast. The closing rally in each county brought together a majority of republicans living in that territory and Many of them were conducted in a unique manner. One instance May he cited which will represent correctly 60 similar demonstrations in adjoining counties. It was at Augusta Butler county. Five thousand voters formed in line. A delegation from a neigh Horing town 12 Miles Distant consisting of 44 ladies on horseback represented the states of the Union 200 men of horseback dozens of buggies and carriages a farm Wagon with a sub Treasury constructed on the running gear Aud six men inside paying out Fiat Money to tile multitudes through As Many windows. The procession ended with a dilapidated Concord Stagecoach on the top of which was strapped the political baggage of senator Peffer Jerry Simpson Ana sex congressman Kelley who recently joined the people s party because lie was desirous Oil affiliating with a party that would pass the Force Bill. An analysis of the vote shows that out of 426 county officers elected in the state the Alliance party secured about 130. The democrats elected 12 and the republicans the balance. The Alliance elected its entire ticket in less than a dozen of the Ioc coun ties. The five Alliance congressmen from Kansas not Only lost their Home counties but suffered defeat in the townships and precincts Iii which they live. The vote shows til at the republicans have carried four of the five districts now represented by Valliant e congressmen. One of these is the seventh represented by Quot sock less Jerry Bionson. A a with a vigorous fight next year the Republican managers Are confident of redeem a lug the five districts beside electing one at i it what the democratic party got out of this contest is a question that is agitating their leaders. It is estimated that the democracy proper did not poll Over 30.000 votes Many counties the leaders declined to a minute tickets. In such a contingency the democrats living in the country voted the Alliance ticket and those living in the towns voted with the republicans. Then there were nominations made in counties where the ticket received less than Soo votes. This was done to please democrats who would not vote either the Republican or Alliance tickets hut who were willing to sacrifice their votes if it would Only help the republicans to beat the Al-m&nc6 if the republicans had pursued other than an aggressive course they would have Ost the Battle. Iii a number of counties the republicans adopted a conservative plan of Campaign and handled the Alliance Sarty tenderly. When the Republican Tate committee offered to Send speakers to Aid in the Campaign they were refused and the committee informed that no outside help was needed that asian of action had been agreed upon and that the local republicans intended to win Alliance votes Back by the use of Taffy instead of applying Vine and vitriol. The counties show the smallest percentage of gains and the result proves that the vigorous determined and positive style of Campaign made in other counties was the Means of redeeming the state and defeating the Alliance. Already the leaders of both old parties Are expressing their opinions on the presidential contest of next year. Republicans declare that the result in Massachusetts new York and Iowa demands the nomination of James g. Blaine. He is the Choice of nine tenths of the republicans of Kansas and it is asserted by leading republicans that his nomination would be Worth 20,000 More votes to the Republican state ticket than that of president Harrison. The coupling together of the names of Blaine Ana Mckinley As the Republican ticket next year is Beard on All sides. It is argued that although Mckinley is the peer of James g. Blaine he should consent to the nomination for vice president if it was the opinion that such a ticket would make Success certain. Then it is claimed that in the event of or. Blaines death before the expiration of his term he would be succeeded by the Foremost statesman of the nation. Cleveland a Stock has grown materially since the election. Democrats give him credit for the big vote Given Flower in new York. He will have the Kansas delegation to the National convention. Hill has no following in Kansas and cannot get a vote in the democratic National convention from this state. Hewitt a Thunderbolt.

The Hall was packed to the doors and prominent men of All sects parties and occupations occupied seats on tile stage Many of whom delivered addresses. Bishop Potter presided and read a Long list of vice presidents. To introduced judge Noah Davis who delivered the opening address. In which he scored the lottery company As a poisonous octopus which stretched out its fangs and demoralized the morals of persons All Over the country. Judge Davis was followed by Gen. George d. Johnston president Seth Low of Columbia College. Father Elliott of St. Paul a and sex mayor Hewitt. The latter in speaking of the stupendous impudence of the lottery company said Quot this question develops a weak spot in the Constitution of Tho United states. Quot it is.

The old romans birthday. Thurman in Good health on the 78th anniversary of his birth. Columbus o., nov. 14.�?allen g. Thurman celebrated yesterday the 78th anniversary of his birth but the recent death of mrs. Thurman made the Day a sad one. The Thurman club had intended to give an elaborate banquet in Honor of the Day. But the death of mrs. Thurman has caused a modification of the arrangements. Allen a. Thurman son of the Quot old roman a yesterday telegraphed the Cincinnati paper which published a Story giving an alarming View of his father s health that Tho statements were untrue. Thurman a his son said. Quot has not been in better health for years. He said thursday night if it continued so he would live to years Blaine and Harrison enter into a treaty of political relationship As to nomination. Washington nov. 15.�?an authoritative statement can now to made regarding the relations Between president Harrison and Secretary Blaine. They understand each other and a solemn agreement exists Between them regarding the Republican nomination. The current comments in the Republican journals of tile country compelled such an understanding since or. Blaines return to his Post of duty. It was inevitable. The political friends of the two men demanded it quite As much As the social relations of the various Cabinet officers. Before the Secretary returned from bar Harbor it is no secret that the relations Between the president and his chief Secretary were strained. . Harrison probably bad not been a personal participant in the causes that had led to the bitterness but or. Blaine Felt that a word from the chief executive would have checked the impetuosity of his friends. That word was not spoken. But it was undeniable that the president wished to retain or. Blaine in his Cabinet. Even had he not to have driven him out would have made or. Blaines candidacy and nomination certain. or. Blaine s part it is equally True that he desired to remain at the head of the state department. He had recently tried a few years retirement from Public life and makes no secret of the fact that he did not enjoy it. Attorney general Milleris the ministering Angel of this Cabinet. He undertook the Mission of bringing about an understanding and succeeded admirably. Joseph h. Manley had opened his lips for or. Blaine far enough to say that the Secretary would tie a candidate for the Republican nomination and it Only remained for or. Miller to conclusively Settle How much of a candidate he would he. The adjustment of the Behring sea controversy was Mere play compared with lawyer Millers task. And yet he has succeeded and a close and confidential Friend of both men has Given out the terms of this latest treaty of Washington. Aside from the reiterates the god Given principle that a emr. Blaine is in the hands of his countrymen a the text runs something like this or. Blaine is to remain in the state department but he will do and say nothing whatever lie will not give a single sign. This is the primary basis of the understanding. Which otherwise would he impossible. It is agreed that the Maine republicans shall elect their delegation without interference from government officials and most important of All that if they shall so decide. . Blaines name shall be presented to the convention. Instead of remaining a passive Factor in the convention As Lias been Given out heretofore. Maine is to he aggressive for the candidate that its delegates agree upon. Who that Man is is not set Forth in words hut Tho same understanding holds As to Indiana. The Blaine people Are to keep hands off there. Tiffs disposes of Many Petty disputes. It Cooks or. Reodis Goose in Maine for example. He cannot make any trouble if he dared. The Blaine people of Ohio and Indiana have been rather Active of late and in Indiana they Aro disposed of for the present. the presidents part it is agreed that he will neither say nor do anything personally to secure delegates. Finally the ardent support of each Man is pledged to the other in the event of a nomination. This is All very interesting and very business like. The Only Factor that does not seem to have entered into the consideration is a third candidate who May run off with tile trophy. The Man xviii Speaks by the cards adds verbally a Maine will never raise Lier voice for Blaine should anything prevent his acceptance. Quot her course will Tell the whole Story. The complexion of her delegation will be unmistakable How can the adm Nistra Don and the faithful friends of or. Harrison ask any More of or. Blaine a eyes on gov. Russell Washington nov. is no More enthusiastic admirer of gov. Russell than representative Mills of Texas. Today in talking about his Campaign experience he said that the time he spent in Massachusetts was the most pleasant part of All his work. A you have a body of splendid Young Fellows in your state a he said Quot keen intelligent and Good fighters. There is enough of the puritanical spirit surviving in Massachusetts to make these Young men leave the dominant party and cast their fortunes with the party that for the time being happens to be Down if they Are convinced that it is right for them to do so. A when you find men who will do this. Who Are willing to make sacrifices for the Sake of principles the result cannot Long he in doubt. Such men Are hound to win eventually As the result in Massachusetts shows. Quot gov. Russell is a Man of great ability and has a future before him. The people in the South and West have watched him with the greatest interest and his Success was very Gratifying to them. They were impressed with the ardor and enthusiasm with which he went into the fight and the fact that he is a Young Man is an additional reason Why they should want to see him victorious. Quot i was added or. Mills in conclusion Quot with the High Diane on which the Campaign was fought in Massachusetts it was magnificent away up beyond anywhere must sign Tho commission. Tallahassee fla., nov. 14.�?the supreme court in the mandamus Case of gov. Fleming is. Secretary of Stato Crawford has decided that a peremptory writ of mandamus must Issue from it compelling the Secretary of state to sign and Seal the commission of r. H. M. Davidson As United states senator but it gives Crawford until monday to decide whether tie will sign or take the consequences. The opinion does not touch upon the legality or illegality of Callas election by the legislature declaring that the United states Senate is tin sole judge of that matter. The decision simply covers the duty of the Secretary of state with relation to signing All commissions and Grants made by the governor. Tax reduction favored. Sedalia. Mo., nov. Farmers National Congress was called to order by vice president Smith of Kansas at to of clock this morning. The entire morning session was taken up by the introduction and Reading of a number of resolutions which were referred to committees. Among the resolutions offered were the following by Kent of Iowa that the National Taxa Tion be limited to the wants of the government economically Anil honestly administered. By Secretary Clayton that believing that greater Good can be accomplished by a More extended representation we hereby extend a cordial invitation and request every state territory and District agricultural society in Hie country to appoint one or More delegates to a National convention to be held in connection with and As a part of the annual session of this body at such a place As they May select. Congressman heard of Sedalia addressed j the delegates on the subject of Quot railway other addresses were delivered by Hon. M. Mohler Secretary of tile i state Board of agriculture of Kansas and Hon. M. Stahl of Illinois. Boston municipal election matters. Tim Republican party in Boston is in search of a mayoralty candidate and although several gentlemen have been and Are still mentioned in connection with the office neither one of them exhibits that eagerness which might obtain under More favourable circumstances. There has been a feeling that sex mayor Hart might consent to run out there is Hie Hest authority for saying that he will not accept even if the convention should nominate him. I ast year he desired to run this year he does not. It is pretty generally agreed that mayor Matthews is to to his own successor. The republicans admit this and tile Only prize they hold up to the Man who is willing to take the nomination is that the Man who can scale Down the democratic plurality in Boston from 13,000 to 7000 or 8000 will he in line for higher honors to wit the governorship. It is believed that this suggestion Lias been broached to or. Hart. Dut that it had no effect toward changing his decision not to he a letter. Paints Hill in sombre or. Fassett makes Strong accusations pays a marked compliment to Cleveland. New York. Nov. 16.�?j. Bloat Fassett arrived at the fifth Avenue hotel saturday from fortress Monroe where he has been staying for a few weeks. He left for Elmira on an afternoon train and said that to expected to devote his energies in the future to the management of his newspaper and his private business. . Fassett was asked if he could make any specific charges regarding the alleged use of Money by the democrats in the recent Campaign in this state. He said that he Din not care to talk upon that matter at the present time. He was in favor he said of a compulsory voting Law As a remedy against Tho possible use of Money in future campaigns. A i am convinced a said or. Fassett. Quot that gov Hill is doing his Hest to steal both branches of the legislature. He feels it incumbent upon himself to do so to retain his position As the democratic Moses. As the situation stands today or. Cleveland has unquestionably got Tho better of or. Hill m the struggle for democratic leadership. Quot when or. Cleveland made his Speerli at Cooper Union it changed 10.000 votes. . Cleveland did More to defeat me than any other one Man. Quot or. Hill finds it necessary to make hold play to regain his prestige in the democratic party. He is going to steal the legislature by Hook or Crook and will Stop at nothing to accomplish his purpose. He is pursuing the same tactics that he displayed in the manipulation of the returns in the congressional contest Between or. Rockwell and col. Noyes in the Elmira District a year ago. Col. Noyes was clearly elected upon the face of Tho returns. The canvassing Board of the democratic counties of the District arbitrarily counted the results on tile face of the returns when they were favourable to or. counted themon tieback of the returns in cases where the faces were favourable to Noyes. Gov. Hill. I firmly believe intends to obtain Possession of Tho Senate and also the Assembly by the same High handed methods. There is no reason to suppose that the state Board of canvassers will refuse to do his corruption in Canada. Contractor charged with paying $115,-000 to High officials. Montreal nov 14, a startling statements which have appeared in the Toronto Empire As to payments made to m. P. Whelan a contractor of tiffs City in connection with a contract for the construction of a new court House have created a sensation Here. A commission had been appointed some time ago to inquire into the matter by Tbs Quebec government but some question having Arisen As to the constitutionality of the commission the matter was dropped. It was charged that Whelan pain sums of Money to High officials with a View to having his claims against tile government settled. The total amount alleged to have been distributed among the officials was $115,000, divided among Hon. Ii. Orcier c. A. Beausoleil f. Achille Carrier m. A. L., Hon. Charles Langelier. Hon. P. Gas Neau Hon. A. Turco the 8. Prefontaine mayor methane of Montreal and others beside a subscription of $14,500 to help Liberal candidates in the Dominion elections. . Whelan admits making the payments but says they were All made for political purposes. Mayor Mcshane denies having received the Money although or. Whelan is authority for the statement that he asked for $20,-000 More towards the election fund. The conservative press is loudly calling on the government to take some action on the matter. Presse Hon. . Chapleau a Organ in this City claims that the a Mercier gang have received $1,100,000 in a similar manner since the Advent to Power of the nationalist party in 1886. Odd wedding rings. Kinds worn by the native women in the upper Congo country. New York recorder the late Lieut von Francois the african explorer described a strange custom among the Bayani who live for Many Miles along the upper Congo. The custom would seem to make life a Good Deal of a Burden to their married women. Brass rods which Are the favorite currency in the country Are welded into great rings around the necks of the wives. Many of these rings worn by the women Whoso husbands Are Well to do. Weigh As much As 30 pounds and this Burden must he carried around by the poor women As Long As they live. Quot frequently a said Lieut. Von Francois a one sees a door woman whose neck is raw Aud sore under the heavy weight and in places where the skin is rubbed off by the ring. This is a sure sign that the ring has been recently welded around her Nock for after a time the skin becomes calloused Aud then the strange ornament produces no abrasion. Quot but the weight is an inconvenience. They never get used to it and it is a perpetual tax upon their energies. In every crowd of women May be seen a number who Are supporting the ring with their hands and thus for a time relieving their weary shoulders of the heavy Burden. Quot it May be said that with every movement of their bodies the rings give them discomfort. A a ring is never put around a woman a neck until she is believed to have attained her full physical development. Once on. It is no easy matter to get it off. The natives have no such thing As a file Aud though they can Hammer a lot of brass oils into one. It is very difficult for them to Cut the thick mass of Metal in two. Women who increase largely in flesh after the Lings have been fastened on their necks Are in danger of strangling to death and instances of this sort have been known to occur. Quot yet these women regard the cumbrous ornament with Pride imagine that it enhances their importance and Beauty and Wear the Burden with Light hearts. Brass is the Money of the country Aud by putting it around their wives necks the men Are Bratty certain that it wont be stolen or foolishly expended. But it is an Odd and cruel sort of savings How engine Drivers Are made in London. We All travel nowadays and we Are All interested in engines and engine Drivers. There is a readable article on the subject in the current number of chamber a journal. Before a Man can become a Driver he has it seems to spend some years in the locomotive works of the company where he Learnt All the parts and fittings of an engine he is t Hen eligible for the Post of fireman and if he is made a Driver within three or tour years he is fortunate. It Lii therefore hts seen that the engine Driver is always a competent despondent in new York. A who would Sot have that miserable presidency a says or. Harrison Boomers Trust that Blaine will work for Benjamin. New York nov. 14.�? since Tho elections a portion of the Republican followers of both Miller and 1�?~lntt despair of doing anything with new York state in ii a. Dwight Lawrence who was for years the canvasser for gov. Cornell and Lias since been intimate with or. Platt said to me. Tile thursday following the election Quot i do not see How we Are to do anything with the state of new York in�?T92 the majority for Flower is so Large that to hoist it away will take More teams than we nevertheless the enormous majority of Cleveland for governor was reduced in the course of a year or two by approaching 200,000 votes. Cleveland had done not ing As governor to lose these votes and had done nothing As a candidate for governor to get such a vast majority. The fluctuation was in the Republican vote which is wont in now York state to take offence at Small causes and the death of Garfield embittered the republicans who had been for a Good while under a half smothered indignation against Roscoe coupling and his bulldozing of president haves. How Little division exists in new York City Between democrats and republicans of american descent can he soon from tile Large additions tammany Hall makes out of the Radical Republican ranks after every one of those schisms. You now see Daniel pickles the carpet bag governor of South Carolina or the regular army governor which was almost the same thing exceedingly High in the councils of tammany Hall and it to were a younger person with less scandals in his life tammany might now he inviting proposals to make him president of the United states. How Strung it is sow to recollect that Daniel e. Sickles and Benjamin f. Butler were two of the main supports. Tile lion and the Unicorn of the state department administration of Hamilton fish. When Hancock was nominated for president. Sickles thought it time to make a break for an old military chum and went Over to Hancock and afterwards joined tammany not Long ago he made a speech a Gettysburg extolling tammany Hall As a patriotic element of the United states which is to some extent True. Before Sickles an extraordinary recruit to tammany Hall was Forster a native of Massachusetts. I think who used to fight the Battles of president Hayos against conking Plait amp co. In the Republican conventions. I saw him arise most gallantly in the Rochester convention of about 1878 and Brawl est or. Platt to his face Aud astonish Conkling by his audacity. I was greatly in Hope that he and Conkling would have a tight on Tho floor and that he would kick Conkling out into the Street which i think lie alight have done greatly to the Benefit of that ill raised and conceited baronial Parven. A person whom Conkling grossly insulted once mustered up courage As he went out of the door to say to him Quot you son of a scrub if your daddy bad licked you Well before you were to years old you might have been of some use to yourself and to your Forster actually compelled the respect of Conkling by his Force of character hut not Long afterwards lie joined tammany Hall Aud Thoro i saw him one evening announcing the returns. The Nephew of Gerrit Smith John Cochrane. In the Greeley Campaign of 1872 became a prominent Sachem of tammany Hall and there stayed till he died. Two Days after the election i went out on the North River in the Beautiful double or quadruple propeller Cincinnati which the Pennsylvania Railroad had built at Elizabethton. Tiffs is a boat made like a two Story House with Fine stairways easy to ascend and electric lights Rich carpets and cloth Walls in imitation of plaster. The railroa4 company constructed it to meet the with the Baltimore amp Ohio and Reading railroads which run Superb trains from new York to Washington Over the Fligh graded. Less indented and More picturesque country than that occupied by the old Philadelphia Wilmington amp Baltimore Railroad. While on this boat i met among others a gentleman who said Tome Quot make up your mind that Harrison Aud Blaine Are going to unite their interests and renominated Harrison for president a this gentleman adhered to this text so firmly and so Long that i looked at him wit i a hit of suspicion. It occurred to me that i could locate persons in office who would have no interest in seeing president liar risen changed. Tiffs is the infirmity of political parties which exert All their in orgies to elect and elevate individuals Aud afterwards Tho entire party organization is expected to adhere to the political state quo. Said my Friend a you know i have known Blaine very Long i was in his service away Back in 1876, when he fainted and had a sunstroke on the Steps of the Church in Washington City Aud during the convention at Cincinnati. A i arrived at his House in time to hear Gen. Sherman say he is going to a then i saw or. Blaine or rather was at his House Only last summer when he again had a collapse in the nature of a sunstroke. Fifteen years had passed by since he fainted on the Steps of the Church at Washington City. Again i saw his wife wring her hands and exclaim a or. Blaine would not have that miserable presidency Why do they keep assailing Aud exasperating him and All of us on account of it itis a contemptible office. Whoever aspires to it is assailed with mud and a emr. Blague and or. Harrison Aro on excellent terms and or. Blame would not take to disturb Gen. Harrison. Blaine is satisfied with his situation As Tho state minister of Gen. said i reflectively a if that is the situation Why is it necessary to impress me with the idea that Blaine is not going to run. he is not going to run. course lie is not going to run i need not be concerned on the however Ray Friend got around again Iii the course of one or two sentences to the necessity of my being impressed with the fact that Harrison would be the next president. Said i a the matter is just Here. The republicans would renominated Harrison if they thought they could re elect him but they fear they cannot re elect him. And Are. Therefore looking in other directions As to or. Blaine for a candidate. I was again abjured to throw the whole matter out of my mind but my Friend would not let it stay out More til an a minute. He insensibly began to utter distinctions against or. Blaine and in favor of or. Harrison. It said i a Why Harrison does not seem to be Able to carry elections. Look at new York state look at Massachusetts look at Iowa a Quot of a said my Harrison Ian acquaintance a these elections did not represent Gen. Harrison at All. He has a Confidence and support in this country amazing to see. I was out in tile Fassett Campaign with Chauncey Depew. We had to manufacture in the newspapers All the enthusiasm of that Campaign. The audiences wore invariably Flat Ana indifferent. Depew himself said on one occasion did you Ever sea anything like it Fassett will be beaten by 25,000 majority we can to do anything at All to arouse enthusiasm for him a a the giving of official situations for social and Otner reasons to members of the Republican press has operated greatly to the disadvantage of the Republican party. Its newspapers in Genera have gone to the rear compared to Tho Republican press which in tie Days of Greeley Forney or. Hay Etc., kept the ideas of a new party Ever advanced to the front. The Republican party is now in the situation of die sons of a once vigorous and powerful Pioneer who Are Content that the greatness and tradition of the party shall he conserved by keeping some of their sprouts and sons in Distant offices. Probably the interests of the country Are As Well looked after As if we i and native and original men in those places of Mere social and a intellectual distinction but the great body of the voters of the party find nothing to subsist upon in the meat of these presses. No longer Are human rights and wrongs set in Hie front. The evils which underlie the Best forms of society Aro no longer exposed. The great amt Noble purposes of the Natty now Are to preserve its currency so that men of property will not lose anything by a it Evl Val of that my it Iii of Hanking which in 1861-62 scattered broaden our promises to pay to them into the hands of two millions of people energized the land and re energized it to redeem this paper. In a country like the United states there must always he a certain amount of sectional ism. Rite British islands Nuch Mon comprehensive and in miniature than the United states have never been without sectional ism. At periods revolutions have started up throughout great Britain amt Ireland based almost entirely on sectional and family lines it was he Northumberland insurrection Iii the time of Queen Elizabeth. Again it was tile Welsh War of two or three reigns. Then it was the Kentish insurrection. Jack Cade in. Scotland was in hostility to England and afterwards Iii rebellion from tile period of roman history Down to the time of George ii. Ireland is Iii rebellion. Sectional ism is the result of local interests and local education. I was talking to a very Rich gentleman from Washington Only last week on the subject of the elections. He had been the president i Shiuk. the Tennessee Coal and Iron company at one time. Said i to him Quot will you not he a sufferer of the democratic party carries Tho country next time a a Well a said he Quot i suppose i would he my Best turns have been made since the War while the republicans have been in Power. Their Tail icy has generally been in tile line of development and conservation of fixed a then. Why Are you rather pleased with the result of the late elections a Quot nothing hut he Quot localism you might Call it Vav e get in Tho habit of Hur Rahing with our applying this idea to the late elections it seems in Ani fest that Massachusetts and new York Are beyond such pressure As the republicans were Able to exert in the late Campaign. In now York state the Republican party disdained a Man with Tho pure character and educated Aims of Andrew d. White of Syracuse they went Down to the town of gov. Hill and Lucius Robinson and discovered the Young legislator Fassett. Who had married into the Crocker family from san Francisco and was Well heeled financially. Republicans in general did not know much about or Fassett. Except As the head of an investigation committee in new Yoris City to show us til Wile of Dick Croker mayor Grant Etc. Tho astonishing Point was developed that Dick Croker had once shown the civility and generosity of a brother in Law and that mayor Grant had Given Dick Croker a Good big present when be had a baby bom and named for Grant. We were then called upon to tear out our hair and exclaim that the City of new York was entirely and wholly corrupt. If about 1000 of these Rich men would act As Well As mayor Grant and Dick Croker when they have children named for them How delightful the City of new York would become to Hie nations i when Croker came Buck from abroad and confronted or. Fassett he gave honest answers to questions and in a few hours the whole fabric of suspicion and imputation faded away. . Fassett was then trotted out for governor. Against him was nominated a Rich Man who Lias never lost ins simplicity of character nor generosity or. Flower. . Flower told me live or six years ago that Tho Republican party was losing Root in the state of new York that the Young men wore joining the democratic not the Republic anon the upward reported to be Good the country Over. Disturbance caused by Maverick Bank failure of interest at abroad. Home and i did not Lipold his judgment to to very sound after new York state elected Harrison president and vet in his own election it would seem that his judgment has been vindicated. He has Linen a Liberal giver and if or. Fassett is a wealthy Man we have not heard of ids benefactions. The Republican party deliberately turned against Andrew White who had Given a Largo part of his private Fortune to the Cornell University. It seems that he had written a hater at one time or another telling Tho truth about one thing or other and this Aas thought to lie a reason Why he should not to a candidate. lie party is always being injured by such cowardice As this. The worlds fair Issue was a poor Issue and the inception of the mistake for such it was Lay in a narrow Way of looking at tammany Hall. The idea was said to be that if there should be a world s fair in now York City those who spend the Money during its stay would be the magnates of tammany Hail. This however was a Small View to take of a great question. I have often seen Small men oppose great and honorable per sons for office upon the ground that if they were elected they would invite big Smith to supper and hence Tho country is to be deprived of great talents because big Smith might have an evenings self esteem. The loss of the worlds fair seems not to have injured tammany Hall. Rather tammany Hall received the thanks of the Community for having endeavoured to bring the great fair to new York. Flower spoke on tiffs question repeatedly and though the ensue was a Little one it was enough. The Farmers throughout Northern new York knew that he had Given in Tho neighbourhood of$300.ooo for Good natured things such As a Home for the aged to Compromise the memory of Henry Kean Ilia wife s brother in Law whose father was said to have died in the almshouse through intemperance. Reap was a phenomenal Man Ami or. Flower advised his sister in Law to make that unpleasant family circumstance a genial reminiscence in his native country. Lias also out of his own pocket Ami by the assistance of his brother presented Watertown with a Noble Church Parish school and parsonage costing $1 to too. The people of Watertown have an idea that he is going to give them a Library. I know that lie is a kind Man and think that his presiding Over the Stato of now York will he to the advantage of the state Iii Good feeling Good nature and example to hard listed and mean men of wealth but my text was that sectional ism or locality controls political movements. New York state has no Coal any More than Massachusetts. All the fuel which drives these modern manufactures comes from the mines of Pennsylvania or Tim Oil of Pennsylvania and Western new York. Manufacturing has become a multiplication of machines and a simple equation of Cost. Massachusetts is shrieking for free raw materials. New York has a Large body of importing merchants and its most prominent merchants in the present age Are hebrews who buy much abroad. I think it probable that Large lines of manufacture which flourished Iii new York state 15 years ago have been abandoned. I can Well remember when a. T. Stewart had carpet Mills at various Points and undertook to Supply his wholesale and retail houses from his own Mills. Who hears now of the Stewart Mills the carpets which were formerly imported by Sloanes Are now manufactured at Manayunk. Near Philadelphia. The tiles once brought from Stoke and other places in Staffordshire Are now made Iii Zanesville The furniture which supplies the City of new York was once made by its own cabinetmakers and now the Mills of grand rapids work up the mahogany of Central America into ornaments for the houses of the Rich of the East. I think i see whenever i come to new York alans of i�ccrep1t�d in several departments compared to the abounding vitality in the West. Nor am i blinded by Tho Comfort and apparent luxury of now York to the fact that its streets Aro the dirtiest Iii the country the local railway facilities inferior to those of almost any town in tile land an t As i look out of my hotel window in new York. I see tile one line of stages running on 5th Avenue Only half patronized Arni made the subject of discussion about Sabbath breaking by the son in Law of Vanderbilt. In Pennsylvania the elections have gone overwhelmingly rep ohioan in Ohio decidedly for Mckinley. Ohio has More of the sentiment of Honor than Pennsylvania but both states Are very substantial Aud Are looking to the immediate Chance. Hie Axis of manufacturing has gone southward and now extends from Newark n. J., almost to Chicago. At one end of this Axis Chicago goes overwhelmingly Republican in the municipal election. At the Centre Ohio sustains Mckinley by a Large majority. At the East. Pennsylvania to the Surprise of the Republican leaders gives almost 60,000 majority for Hie head of the k publican ticket. Those localities Aro satisfied with the condition of things. They have 1 Uel the Metal. Etc., close at hand. Very probably Mckinley derived some advantage from the changing of his District whereby it was made impossible for him to come to Congress though overwhelmingly in the majority As his political society had formerly been composed. Political parties never do acts of that kind nut they must meet the consequences. Ohio. Probably without having any Groat spirit of rejoicing in the excessive Tariff Mckinley had imposed remembered the names of Garfield Foster Sherman Schenck Etc., and seated maj. Mckinley in the governors chair. G. A. Townsend. New York not. 13,. G.

Effect of Mckinley act on British Trade. London nov. . Tho tin plate Industry in Swansea has become so depressed and the demand for steel has been so seriously lessened that it is reported the masters in that place have decided to close their works when Tho existing contracts shall have been executed. The outward Trade from the London docks to new York at the present time is in great contrast to tile Trade which was carried on Between Tho two polls at the same period last year. Tho vessels formerly sailed from Here with full cargoes but now they leave for new York with their holds half empty. This decrease in the carrying Trade is attributed to the effect which the new american Tariff exerts in tiffs country. As a consequence of this decrease it is announced that at the end of Tho present seasons service Between England and Montreal Tho steamers controlled by the Allan line instead of boing placed on the route from London to new York will be transferred to a new route which will include London. New Orleans and in Orts in Tho Mediterranean. At Home and abroad. Hon. W. Love United states Consul to san Salvador says that the government of san Salvador was very anxious for reciprocity with the United states that some encouraging Progress was making in that direction. Owing to the continued depression in the Salt Trade the Liverpool Salt Union has issued orders for the stoppage of a number of pans at Nantwich 17 Miles from Chester on the River Weaver and grand trunk canal and also at Winsford. In the latter town Iso employees have been thrown out of work and there is a Prospect that other works will he stopped. But Little Salt is expected by the River Weaver and the traffic is almost at a standstill Many being obliged to leave win lord to find worn elsewhere. German importers interested in the american provision Trade charge that there is a conspiracy on the part of certain officials to break Down Tho reputation of american pork by circulating false reports of trichinosis. They claim that tile Only instances of death rom Trichina lately have been attributable to German pork eaten nearly or quite raw and that the blame has been Laid on the american article to prevent people from buying it. At a meeting on Friday of the committee of the German tradesmen a association the worlds fair at Chicago was discussed at considerable length. One speaker said that As the United states held the second place among foreign Consumers of German goodst tile participation of the Empire in the exhibition was advisable. Several members spoke against the Mckinley Bill while others declared that experience had shown that but Little Good resulted from foreign exhibitions. A decree will be issued shortly revoking the prohibition of american pork Iii the Austria ii hungarian Empire. Minister Grant was notified Friday that his efforts had been successful and that Tho custom houses of the Empire would be opened soon to american Salt meats. The Prospect of the stoppage of the russian Export of wheat has caused great activity in that Staple. During the last seven Days 2,000,000 goods have been exported from Odessa. The anticipated prohibition also prevents merchants from buying fresh supplies for fear of having them left on. Their hands. At Libanti and revel Corner Cial shipping circles Are much disturbed.

Washington nov. 15. Politics Are simmering in Washington just now. The pot has not yet begun to boil but in a week or two it will to bubbling away at a Lively rate. Tim presence of sex gov. Foraker of Ohio in tiffs City puts a Fagot under Tho Kottle and causes a gentle agitation in the political Broth. Gov. Foraker a ostensible reason for coming to Washington is to argue a Case before Secretary Foster in which he appears As counsel but while Here it is believed he will make use of ins opportunities to do a Little political work which May have important results later. It is understood that Foraker and Blaine will manage to get together and hold a private conversation the details of which would doubtless prove interesting if the Public were taken into Hie Confidence of these two eminent statesmen. Foraker is ambitious and has no great reason for caring very warmly for the present occupant of the White House. Foraker is curious to know what Blaine intends to do As nearly every other politician is. For that matter and it May be his eyes will to opened before lie leaves Washington. Blaine is popular in Ohio and while Secretary of the Treasury Foster is charged with the duty of keeping Tho Buckeye state in line for Harrison and everyone who knows the Secre Aryl a political ability May feel assured to will do his work faithfully yet Joey b. Foraker knows a thing or two about politics from a strictly practical Point of View of j. B. Should find it for his interest to run a Blaine Boom in Ohio. It would he Worth while to watch the fight Between him and Foster and it would be a toss up As to who would come out on top.

He is very ambitious to come to the Senate and lie has been credited with having originated the plan to have the legislature declare senator Briceus seat vacant on the ground of his not being a resident of the Stato.

The first lathe for turning Granite Cut Only cylindrical or conical columns but an Bynum a lock and career of the would be to Indianapolis As lie declare a to run for his victories at the polls won under most Adverse conditions. Indianapolis. Ind. Nov. 15.�?the fact that congressman William d. Bynum of this City is a candidate for the speaker ship of the next Congress a exciting the liveliest interest among his friends throughout the Stato and already they Aro arranging to go to Washington and work for Ilia nomination by the democratic caucus. It is hardly asserting too Mach to say that Bynum has the largest personal following of any Man in the state and there is hardly anything that he might not ask at the hands of his party. Ever since he entered Congress he has been import Ned to retire from that body and arrest a nomination for the governorship but he has so far refused to enter state politics and his candidacy for the speaker ship indicates that he has no intentions of leaving the scene of labors where he has become so prominent. . Bynum represents in an eminent degree the Pluck Ami Luck of the typical Western statesman it is hardly to years since tie came to this City a perfect stranger. But he has forged Forward till there is no one in the state who would care to enter the lists where a Tost of popularity would in made with him. To entered upon his political career in the Little City of Washington Daviess county Iii 1879, As a Reform candidate for mayor i to City was Republican by a Largo majority but after a heated Campaign Bynum was chosen mayor by a decided vote and served for two years. Asa lawyer to had developed some Talent and As a Man Ami an executive he won great popularity. When his term As mayor expired he announced that he was going to Indianapolis a to run for this was considered As a joke by his friends but they soon had reason to believe that Trio matter was seriously considered even before he Bari located hero and that he had surveyed the Field and had an intelligent Conception of the course to do pursued to attain the distinction to which he aspired. He it Anie to tiffs City in 1881 and soon formed a partnership in the practice of Law. At that time Indianapolis and Marion county were hopelessly Republican and it was next to impossible to get a Man of intelligence Ami standing to run for office on the democratic ticket a nomination being regarded As equivalent to a defeat. When tile party was casting about for legislative candidates in 1882, the Law partner of or. Bynum announced that the latter would accept a nomination. This was regarded As an evidence that Bynum was totally unfamiliar with local politics but ids offer was gladly accepted and he was pieced upon the ticket which was popularly supposed to be made Only to be sacrificed. But an unlocked for event created a decided change in the aspect of affair. The republicans were dallying with prohibition Ami All at once the germans of the City Ana state effected an organization and determined to support the democratic legislative tickets. Instead of being sacrificed. Bynum was elected after a local Campaign that developed his Powers As a stump speaker an i proved Hunt Quot be no Ordinary master of political situations. Fie was the first Democrat that had been elected Iii this county for nearly a score of years and his Success brought him a Host of friends by reason of the very Novelty of his position. The Campaign had hardly closed Aud the certainty of a democratic legislature assured before be announced Attiat lie would be a candidate for speaker of tile lower House even his friends doubted the expediency of such a candidacy i t they went to work in his interest and he was nominated and elected to preside Over that body. Having Defeated men of Long sex i it Eri Uncein Tho legislature and of great popularity with Tho party. At Tho same election to at Bynum was chosen for tin legislature Young will English Mali the race for Congress again 4 Stentor j. Feel in the Republican in our heat. And Tho returns gave Tho latter a majority. A contest was prosecuted by English Ami he was seated near Hie close of tile session but he i it liii0<i to make another race. Bynum at once announced himself a candidate for the democratic nomination an i was chosen Hie nominee the lie Public ans choosing Peelle who was very popular with ins party and w to was regarded As having Heen unjustly treated by the democratic Congress in the English contest. The District was close but slightly Republican and Hail returned a Republican representative Ever since 1874. Bynum threw his whole energies into tile canvass spoke in every school District Aud was elected by a plurality of 1739 voted. His Campaign was made on the single Issue of Tariff Reform a doctrine which had been but Little advocated in the state at that time Ami the result was a Complete revolution in Public sentiment. The new member entered Congress with the Cleveland administration and encountered All Tim difficulties that beset Bis class in Tho distribution of out Rouge. Every Democrat who did not get an office Ana nearly every Democrat in the District wanted one charged the failure upon Bynum Aud when he asked a renomination in 1886 he was opposed by the most formidable combination that w As Ever seen in an Indiana congressional District. The opposition was led by Young will English but Bynum returned to the City and entered Udo the fight with a Zeal equal to that which characterized his race before the people. Under his dexterous handling of men the sentiment of Tho District was greatly changed and when the nominating convention met it was Clear that he would de nominated. To prevent this the opposing faction withdrew from Tho Hall and nominated its candidate while the Bynum delegates. A Bare majority renominated him for another term with two candidates in the Field it was Clear that the democrats would lose the District Aud the questions Between the factions were submitted to the state Central committee that body instead of deciding which was the regular nominee declared against both and ordered a new convention. To this Bynum again submitted his claims and was finally nominated amid scenes of confusion and bitter passion never before witnessed in the state. But the convention was far from settling the controversy. His title to the Norwina Tion could no longer be questioned but hit enemies formed an organization within the party and openly advocated the election of the Republican nominee a Man with Many popular qualities Aud confessedly one of the Best lawyers in the state. The opposition roused Bynum to his utmost and again he entered the Field with Tariff Reform As his Campaign Shibboleth. While Many of the members of the party were in open opposition to Hun and betting on his defeat he camb out of the race with a majority of 1774 Over his opponent and this result was achieved when the party not Only in this Bat in Many other districts Wile torn by factions and the republicans carried other districts which were regarded As safely democratic. Again in 1888. When the republicans male such a stupendous Effort to elect Harrison and carried the state for him. Bynum carried the capital District in which the Republican presidential candidate lived by a majority of 1727. But his greatest achievement was two years later when he returned after being reprimanded at the bar of the House by the Quot Czar of the billion Dollar Congress. The Campaign was an unusually vigorous one. Both on the part of the democrats and the republicans Aud Bynum came out of it with a majority of 5315. The Triumph was so signal that the democrats could not resist the temptation to addres a Telegram to a Pecker Reed announcing Tho Victory of the Man who had so recently been subjected to a reprimand. The record is certainly a complimentary one to Bynum. In 1882 lie found the District Republican but doubtful and la 1890 it Hail become More certainly democratic than any other District in the state and this was accomplished in less than a decade from the time that the congressman announced that he was going to Indianapolis Quot and run for Why Briggs was acquitted.
