BMOIU of the KickTkttoni Going on In th*
Vicinity of Babylon.
WASHINGTON, NOV. 8.—The human
race is nearly ten centuries older than
science had knowledge of before, as a
result of the extensive explorations of
the ruins of Niffer, near ancient Baby
Jj*1 Ion, as described in a report to the state
I, department by Minister Terrell at Cbn
\f- fltantinople. These explorations are
being made at the expense Philadelphi
ana, and Dr. Peters and Professor Hil
pricht of the University of Pennsylva
nia hare supervised the work. Many
.ftpns of tables, vases, inscribed briok,
sarcophagi and the like have been ex
humed, the sensual and reuolting wor
ship of the god Bel is more clearly
tnown. His colossal temple with its
180 rooms has been exposed and the
religion, government and customs of
men who lived 4,000 years before Christ
have been revealed by the translated
inscriptions. Minister Terrell says
that it will require 60 volumes to con
tain the descriptions of these marvel
Fatal Election Riot*

PITTSBURG, NOV. 8.—Train No. 5,

The railroad officials say no passen
gers were hurt. Both trains were going
at (he rate of 40 miles an hour and
came together while rounding a curve.
Neither crew had time to jump or
sound a warning.
The meeting place for them was
Pine Grove, four or five miles east of
the place of the collision, where the
passenger train should have taken the
siding for the freight. For some reason
the passenger train passed the siding.
The mail car was reduced to kindling
wood. Only the heavy vestibules of
the passenger cars saved them from a
similar fate. Fully a dozen cattle cars
were piled up in the wreck, killing and
maiming many of the dumb brutes.

PORTLAND, Me., Nov. 8.—Ex-Speaker
Thomas B. Reed says of the election:
"It is a little difficult with wires down
and very scant returns to speak defi
nitely of the result, but enough seems
certain to assure the country the peace
it so much requires. The rest of the
country seems to have been moved by
the same causes that moved the East
ern states. Democrats everywhere,
either by silence or by action, seem to
have helped to partially save the Union
from the follies of inexperienced and
injudicious men. I say partially, for
we shall be fortunate indeed if business
does not carry the scars of the last
eighteen months a very considerable
time. If the overturn proves as com
plete as is now indicated the countxy is
much to be congratulated, especially if
we Republicans make a judicious use
of our victory."
STEVENSON GIVES THE CAUSE.
Financial Depression and Delay in Passing
the Tariff Bill.
BDOOMINGTON, Ills., Nov. 8.—Hon.
Adlai E. Stevenson spent the day
quietly in the seclusion of the home of
his brother, meditating upon the polit
ical events of Tuesday. Mr. Stevenson,
when asked to state his opinion as to
the causes leading up to the Demo
ocratic defeat, said:
"My opinion can be briefly stated.
The result is due in part to the finan
cial depression which came upon the
country soon after the inauguration of
Mr. Cleveland. While .the Democrats
were in no way responsible for this
they were made the scapegoats. It
wai in part due to the dalay of con
gress in passing the tariff bill. Had
the bill become a law 90 days earlier
than it did it is quite probable that the
business conditions of the country
would have so adjusted themselves that
the political result would have been

What tlie Major Thinks of the Republican
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 8.—Governor
McKinley was in his office early, con
sidering the fact that he was up most of
the night receiving election returns.
Being asked what he thought about the
situation he preferred not to talk. He
would only say: "The sweeping Re
publican victories are impressive. They
need no interpretation. They express
better than words the revised and de
liberate judgment of the people upon
the public questions involved in the
political contest now closed."
Free Silverltcs Win.
CARSON CITY, Nev., Nov. 8.—Returns
are coming in slowly, At many points
the count is still in progress. From the
meager returns received the indications
are that Jones, nominee of the Free
Silver party, has been elected and de
feated Cleveland, Rep., for governor,
by from 400 to 800.
New Hampshire Returns.
CONCORD, N. H., Nov. 8.—Returns
from 235 out of 266 cities and towns in
New Hampshire give* Busiel, Rep., a
plurality over Kent, Dem., of 12,404.
The same ratio of Republican gains in
the towns yet to be heard from will
give Busiel over 14 000 plurality.
Tennessee Legislature Democratic.
NASHVILLE, Nov. 8.—Official and un
official returns show that 76 Democrats
have been elected to the legislature
with several counties to hear from.
This gives the Democrats control in
both houses and insures the election of

says he does not concede Wilson's de
