PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING- EXPRESS KIN8LOK BROTHERS - JPDBHSHEKS THE OFFICIAI. VOTE. The complete official returns from ovory county Id Pennsylvania of tho baUoU oast at tbe elootion on the 4th of November show that tbe total vote for all the State tioketa in the field was 923,264, the largest ever polled at any election exoept that of 1888, wheu the Presufential vote exceeded 987,000. Tbe gubernatorial vote was divided as follows: Pattisou, 464,209; Delamater, 347,055; Gill, 16,175; Ryuder, 225, thus giving Pattisoo a plurality of 15,544, and an abaolute majority of 144. In evory ooanty but one Delamater ran behind his ticket, the single exception, being Monroe county. His total gain on tbe vote given to Beaver four years ago is, in round numbers, 35,000, while tbat of Pattisoo on tbe vote for Black on tbe same occasion is 94,000. Tbe Prohibition Tote has fallen off 16,000, or exaotly one-half of that which waB given to Wolfe in 1886, while the Labor vote has virtually disappeared. The vote for Lieutenant-Governor ^ives Wstres a plurality of 23,365, and for Secretary of Internal Affairs it gives Stewart a plurality of 25,473. In some of the oounties, notably in Philadelphia and Allegheny, both these candidates run far ahead of Delamater, tbe majority for Watresia the latter oounty being neatly 12,000, while tbat for Delamater is a little �ore than 2,000. Tbe official figures prove conclusively that Pennsylvania is still a Republican State. MEETS DEATH WITHOUT FEAR CURRENT COMMENT. Tub re-election of Henry Cabot Lode�T. Hon. S.

At eight o'clock tbe Axe Makers' band of Mill Hall took its place in the gallery and a few moments later those whose names appeared on the program took their places upon the stage. After a selection by the band Dr. Eldon requested all to rite and be led in prayer by Rev. Charles James Wood, of the Episcopal Church. The band next favored the audience with another beautiful selection after which the principal introduced Mr. J. Milton Furey, tbe President of the evening. Mr. Furey on taking the chair reviewed britfly tho history of the society and urged all to be loyal to the school aud work with trustees, principal and faculty in making the school a graud success. He urged upon the members to do all in their power to build up the society. Following the President's address came a recitation by Miss Bessie Gardner, "Tbe , Pit of Death." Tbe lady did well, and in , response to an encoae gave a humorous { election j The Misses Furey tken favored the j audience with a beautiful little duet and i were heartily applauded. Tbe audience | was not satisfied until they bad rendered a second selection. Mr. R. R. Rodes was the orator of tbe evening. His production was full of sound logic, forotble illurtrations and w hoi eso mo advice. His central thought was that the men who make their mark to tbe world are the n�*n who persevere. After an eloquent peroration, he closed with the motto of the society, "Earnestness alone makes life eternity." It is a pleasure to have men like Mr. Rodes honor tbe school and tbe society with their presence and cheering words on an occasion like this. After a pleasing selection by the band Miss Alice Kendig read the Prioe Gazette. This was full of interesting matter, both humorous and instructive, and was listened to with close attention. Following this came the rendition of a cantata by tho Glee club of the society. The cantata was entitled, "A Garden of Bingiug Flowers." The parts were distributed as follows: The Rose. Miss Dornbtaser; the Daisy, Miss Heck; the Sunflower, MissLoveland; tbe Buttercup, Miis Hanna; the Jvily, Miss Boone; tbs Gardener, Mr. J, W. Thomas; the Man in-the-Mooo, Mr. Gren-inger; the Tulip, Mr. Longeoeoker; the Pansy, Mr. Hess. The members spout a great deal of time and labor to mako the music an enjoyable ferture of the program and the performance last evening reflected great credit upon the society, the glee club and upon Prof. Reimer, who suggested the piece and gave tbem daily rehearsals. All the performers did well. The eoloe were highly appreciated. The opening chorus was especially enjoyable. This oonoluded the exerolses of l.io evening and the audience withdrew as the band was playing another enlivening selection. Bliss Hattie Noyee, of Weatport, a graduate of tbe school, filled the position of Secretary. Through the kindness of Mr. PouBt, the gentlemanly manager of the firm or A. H. Heilmno * Co., the society bad tbe ubo of two elegant tables. The stage presented a very attractivo appearance. Thus endcth another anniversary, and we extend our caeRrattilatkma to the Prioe Society and hope that their future may ba rounded out with happiness, harmony, usefulness, and all that is good and ennobling. NOTES Off THE AHHIVEHSART. Joe W. Furey occupied a front pew and was an interested member of tbe large audionco. Much credit for tbe success of the anniversary is due to Messrs. Stanley and Furey who worked untiringly for its good. Prof, Maloy entertained the member* of the band after the entertainment with several musical selections from tbe Phonograph. Tho new Normal never looked to a better advantage than last night and its chapel its ceitiialy one of the finest in the state. Prof. J. B. Peoplesof thc First National Bank was present and seemed as greatly Interested eo ho did in days of yore when vloo-Principal of tbe institution. Miss Annie Mills, wbo accompanied the Furey sisters on the piano, ia quite a musician and always plays for these young ladies no matter where they sing. Miller McCormiok, who has always taken great interest in tbe exercises of the Normal encouraged the studeuts by his hearty appreciation of tbeir efforts. Tbe Axe Makers' band won golden words of praise for their excellent music rendered during the evening. The boys seem to have become a fixture of tbe Normal sohool. Many of the persons who took part iu the program will leave for their respective homes to-day, among tbe number Misses Kendig and Gardner. Both these ladies have hosts of friends at tbe Normal. Rev. Charles James Wood, who remained during the whole evening stated that he considered it the best anniversary tbe Price society had ever held and he was more than usually pleased with the music, The Reverend gentlemen is a great lover and a good judge of music *** WRECKS ON THE RAILROAD A Bad Sniashup on the Pennsylvania Line Near fTew Florence.

The Second Section of tbe Western Express on the Pennsylvania Railroad Daehea Into the Rear of the First Section-A Sleeper Telescoped and Set on Fire-Scenes at the Wreck. Pittsbuug, Nov. 14-A collision occurred on tbe Pennsylvania railroad near New Florence, Pa., just before 7 o'olock Friday morning, between tbe first and second sections of tbe western express, killing two passengers and injuring eleven others. The killed wore: Henry D. Minot, No. 39 Court street, Boston; Mrs. S. H. Augell, No. 80S Twenty-first street, Washington, D. C. Tbe injured were: R. 8. Delaney and wife, of Haymarket, Va., very seriously; J. F. Matthias, of Baltimore, seriously; J. Hellman, of Washington, internally; William Rochester, of Hoffman House, New York, internally; C. C.

Miller, of Allegheny City, Pa,, very seriously; Henry McCormiok, engineer, very seriously; Dr. Wieble, slightly hurt, Mrs. Wieble, very seriously. Tbe first section of the western express is made up of Pullman sleeperB and day ooacbes. It is known as train No. 9. At Harrieburg tbe Washington Bleeper was attached. Tbe second seation is known as train No. 7, and is composed of bagge, express and mail ears. It runs immediately bebind No. 9. Tbe first seotion was due at New Florenoe at 5:44 a m., but it was 6:37 when the train reached that station. The fog was so dense tbat tbe engineer did not notice the red signal in tbe tower till aiujf uc had passed. He then slowed np and went back for bis orders. He then pulled ahead slowly. toe sleeper afire. In the mean time tbe flagman of Np. 9 had gone baok to signal No. 7. He has not been beard from since, and it is supposed tbat be was not able to get baok far enough to stop tbe seoond seotion, as the engine of No. 7 came crashing into the Washington sleeper Aiscay, telescoping it to the dlstanoe of from ten to twelve feet. The sleeper caught fire and was nearly destroyed. Tbe Aanetes, tbe next sleeper, was thrown from the track, but not badly damaged. Tbe scene following the collision was exoiting in tbe extreme. Tbe passengers became panic strioken, and in their efforta to get out broke tbe windows and crawled through. As quickly as possible the passengers in the unfortunate Biscay were removed. It was fonnd tbat two had been killed out right and eleven others more or less seriously injured. At least four of tbe injured, it is thought, will die. They were conveyed to bouses in the vicinity and everything possible done to relieve tbeir sufferings. The uninjured passengers arrived in this olty just before noon. trying to fix the dlame. * Flagman Kountze, who bad started baok to notify the second section, arrived in tbe city this afternoon. He claims' that the engineer of No. 7 saw tbe signals and tbat be bad torpedoed the rails. James Doran, engineer of No. 9, says he stopped for water. Robert Gould, conductor, said that tbe train bad not stopped more than a minute and a half when No. 7 crashed into it.

He hastened to the car, wbioh waa simply a mass of ruins enveloping tbe engine. Tbe engine penetrated tbe oar to within ten feet of the end. In its mad plunge everything in tbe car was carried before it. He said: '(Ab I looked out I saw tbe steam issuing from tbe oar at several points, but whether tbe engine exploded its boiler or not I oould not tell, for the car and ma- j chine were amalgamated into one borrible seething oauldron of death. I do not see how any oue in that car escaped death. 1 boarded tbe oar, or what waa left of it, from tbe front end and saw C. C. Hex imprisoned in tbe wreck. Two fingers are torn off and his leg badly crashed. He cannot live. MrB. Eogell was orushed to death. Tbe rear of her beitb was shoved forward by tbe engine and she was crashed witb it.
