He got Buckton down, and having re-eeived the assurance f;um the prostrate man that he had enongb let him up. Buckton, as aoon as he had regained his ieet, drew a knife from his pocket, Opened ll and made a slash at Weihe.
The blade caught the victim in the neck, slashing the Windpipe and nearly severing the head from the body.
The wounded man was picked up by two friends, Gvorge Teetor and Wm. Mersham, who started to lead him to hi.s home, a short distance away, but Weihe fell in front of I’atrol-house No. 6, only a few doors from the scene of the cutting.

RAIN SPOILED IT. .
ng the afternoon, headed by drum corps and bands, and saluted by cheers, chief among which were the Columbus, Ohio, Oarileld Club, and the Now York and Crawfordsvllle delegations.
Tbedriczling raiu, which commenced Tuesday, liiterspsraed with heavy shoig-era, Is still on aud about noon the tber-raometer tc/ok a downward plunge, whlofai makes overcoats a ueoeasitv.
The weather grew Intensely cofd, aog-mentqd by swinging gusts of driving rain. .Soon after the dlrterent organizations made their appearance on the sidewalks, one battallion in rubber boots performed an exhibition in the mud as an incentive to bravery, and tho small boy with tin horn left that instrument of torture lone enough to cheerlngly urge the demonstrators to “get in de songs,” but tlie wind awed them, and the parado was given up. At Harrisod's Ivouae no apparent proparatmns were uiade to view the parade, and the only sign that the event was of more than ordinary Interest was a large crowd of neighbors who had congregated on the lawn. When, after defying tlio elements for an hour and a half, word was brought that tho parade was given Vip, howls of disgust from tho sneota-tors were extremely earnest. The downtown demonstration took the tin-horn and cannon phase, and Thursday night •scenes were repeated. There were not less than 75,000 people ont tonight, and of that number fully a third bad tin iiprns and marched up and down the sidewalk blowing horns and yelling. It is hoped tonight’s outburst will end iU If continued, the peaceful portion of the city will move out or go crazy.

Undci’the Snrveillance of a Detective In iiu Isolated Kentucky Tuvii|i —Kllurt to Compromise * Unsuccessful,
A few days since tho Tkleoram gave to the publlo tho first infoN naatlon of the disappearance of Charles Tinkler, the young collector of tho Bodmann Tobacco Company, with his sweetheart, Tillio Meier, after forging checks to the amount of 115,000 on tlie Citizens’ National, the First National and the Merchants’ National banks. The affair created a profound sensation for the time being, bti|t ia#be heat of political excitement was soon forgotten by all save tho»e.directly in-tere.stcd in the afiair. A persistent search has been instituted and every effort made to apprehend the young forger before he- might get away with his ill-gotten cash, and tho Tei.eoram Is informed that he anil his sweetheart have been finally located in an obsonre little Kentucky‘village not one hurtdred miles from Cincinnati where in their ignorance of the fact that their vrhore-abouts are knotvn, they are living ás man and wife on what is left of the money.
Ills pretty certain'that Tinkler's victims will profit little pecuniarily by his capture, as be has evldentlv squandered most of it. In fact, the drst theory of his having dumped it in on tho Eastern races, with the assistanco of a second person, probably the real instigator of the crlmo, proves it to be about correct, though notliing definite can be ascertained until after his capture, which is delayed pending regoiiatioiis looking toward a compromise with his friends. The banks have thus far refused to make any promises of leniency, and unless a i settlement is made before 'rnesclay 'I'inkler 'will find himself behind tVe bars. The case wis worketl up by a pd-vute detective, who has Tinkler under surveillance, and whose name will be given when the arrest Is made.

Mr. Gladstone’s speech in Bingley Hail was a groat effort. It showerl no decline in clearness or power. Not so radical a.s wns feared. It satisfied all concerned in the party.
The moderate oonservallvcs even conld have little fault to find, while it was firm and definite on all points of reform demanded by the Liberal party, and outspoken for Home Rule. There weio cheers before and after the speech. When Mr. Gladstone rose the audience rose, and the scene which followed, baffled description. For over five minutes Gladstone, by bis gestures, Im-plurert the audience to abandon enthusiasm. When tho ball was quieted, thunders of applause came in from multitudes ouisitle at intervals and frequently Interrupted the speakers In beginning. When silence was secured, or rather when the enthusiasm had Hubsidod, from sheer fatigue, Mr. Gladstone succeedetl in making his voice heard in all parts of tho vast hall. He was listened to with extraordinary patience by* the immense audience. When he took his seat there was a renewal of the enthusiaam at tho opening, and it lasted even longer. No oetter proof could be given that the of the great man had not deoHnéd.

Employea of the city buildings— watchmen, janitors atul elevator men-are kicking hard at not receiving their tack pay for May and June, and they lay the causo of their trouble at tlie door of Comptroller Eshelby, who refuses to oertlfy the plaims. Mr. Eshelby takes the ground that there Is no money .in tha fmúrePAfi'dkthat under the law bar can not certify the claims. Theomployes claim, however, it ia a - political scheme of hin to force them to be for his man for Comntroller next Spring.
One of the employes said to tiie Tkle-OKA.K last uighl: “Mr. INhelby will never force me to get down on my knees before him and beg for the money which I earned and i.s due me. I can easily see through the whole thing. He will not be a candidate for Comptroller next spring, but his present as-abstant, Harry Skiff, will be, and Skiff will bo opposed In the convention by Dan Brown, the Secretary of the ijoard of Public Affairs. Brown will have the support of Géorge Cox and his following, while Eslielby will pull the Lincoln Club into line for Skiff. It will be a hard fight, but you liet that Dan Brown will get there. Eshelby wants to gel everyuody into line for Skiff. If we wore to go to Eshelby and tell him that we would go to the convention and do everything for his man, we would get our money quicker’n a Hash, but we won’t do that, and knowing we are against him, he is keeping us out of our money.”

A Cincinnation jdst returned from New York tells the Telegram how tbe Republicans carried that State. It ia needless to say he is a Democrat. B« says: “In the first place there wera eight tickets—separate tickets for the different offices:—Fresidential, State, City and County, Congresaional, Assembly, Alderinanic, Judicial and Ckmstitu-tlonal Amendment. All these tickets were voted in one bunch, with a rubber band ’round them, forming a bunch two inches long and a quarter of an inch thick, being separately folded, and endorsed respectively by tho different offices they repren ted, only. Now, then: not>« of tnese tickets gave ths name of anv political party, so that the voter wa.s thoroughly at a loss to know whether he was voting the Democratic, Frohibitlon, lAbot, or any other ticket, being obliged to rely entirely on the good faith of the tioket-holder, or else make a comparison by personal examination of the ticket as printed in the partisan newspapers, there being np posters at the polls, as we have nere, showing the candidates of the parties. In New York this time, In most pre-fdnets—in fact, in nearly all-^the voting was remarkable for its necessary rapidity, on aooonntof the extraordinary teg-istration, amounting to as much as three or four ballots per minute. The point iatbis; With reference to thq elaoUital • ■ iMimj' > VifRVl'itson of the peculiarity of tho voting'it ivas the simplest thing in the world for a shrewd politician, like Matthew (¿nay. to buy up say one Democratic ticket-bolder in each precinct to substitute the Kepublican Presidential electoral ticket» for tho Democratic; and Lino out of ten men voting would not know the difference, from tlie simple fact that these tickets do not show the name of the political party nor the name of tbe Presidential candidates, but give merely a list of thirty-six names of Jones. Kinilh, Brown, Ac., names entirely unknown to ninety-nine hundredths of tlie elector», who received these tickets in good faith from tbe tickei-holders and voted the bunch blindly.
“Now, then, there are 856 electoral precincts in New York City; and say, by wav of illustration, that'eight voters m eaclh precinct were thus deceived, that woubl make 6,818 votes—a net Republican gain of 13,606. Governor Hill ran just about that much ahead of Cleveland In New York City. This is merely one illustration of the way the thing could have t>een worke«l, and was undoubtedly worked, especially because of the willingness of the apathetio lierao-cratic workers to go into a bargain of that kind. When I say ‘apathetic’ I mean tliat they staked everything on ILll and Grant, and c.ared very little for Cleveland. The saloonkeepers especially were d^terotffied on re-electing Mill at any cost.
‘■In the rush nine out of ten men didn’t look at the tickets given them. Tho ticket holder* stood with a bag like H m:il 1-carriers bag with the bunches of tickets in them. Even if the voter» did look over the tickets, they didn’t reveal any distinctive mark us to the character of the ballot.
“Take 8.5G precincts as a b.vsis, and paying one ticket holder say 825. by the payment of f21,8(iO it is the eaaiest thing in ilie world to turn the tide'In New York City for any political party. Thia peculiar iform of voting shows that notwithstanding the boast of purity in New York, there is more chance of corruption of public opinion than in the bulldozed Southern States.
“As soon as I saw the system of voting I was convinced that it was all up with Cleveland. I sppllod to ticket holders for tickeu, and had a hard time getting them. They took me for a detective.”
That Exposition Deficit.
“Hello, SecreUry Gross, how’s the deficit?”
“Say, Telegram, you may say for the benefit of tho dear public and those papers who give tlieir readers rot, that It will be U*n day* before tbe exact amount, or even the anproxlmate amount of the exposition deficit will be known. Everyibmg printed about it, purporting to be t«ased upon reliable figures, is all bosh.
