NEW YORK ELECTION PKAUDS.
The Grnmt Jury I'lnitx ICvliluncq, Hut Not
.SiilllcUut to Com let.
Now York, Oct. 11. Tho epicla grand Jury
ot tho Court of Oyer and Terminer inudo a
ptcsotilineiit to the court jcntcrdny. Tho grand
Jury occupied much tlmo hi the consideration
of the charges of thu City llcform Club lu re
gard to election frauds. 1'vldoticu upon thtso
charges has been adduced uud the subject ling
been gricii n seniehbig and careful Inquiry.
1'hogr.ilid Jury Wire dcply Impressed with
the conviction that miiiiciotis violations ot
law wro committed nt the lust election, but
tho evidence wat not of n character atifllUcutly
dhectoi convincing to wuirnnt tlm flndlng ot
hidletnients ngiihist tho unlit) pirtlcr.
Tliese offenses consist mainly of Illegal and
fraudulent i cglstrathms nnd voting, tho bri
bery of utcrn, mid tho rLCLlvuig oriirllus for
votes, tlio fubo prrsointlon ot qunlllled (.lec
tors, and other frauds of the nature. lVr-ons
coniuilttlm; these crimes, If punishment was
wMied-for, must bo upprehended lu tho net;
nor did tlio cuds of justice require this, 'llio
Invcstlcntlon should Do conducted rather Willi
a vleivof ascertaining whether these crimes
wcio committed pursuant to a conspiracy bo
tween people In more proiiihieiit jiosltlons,
nnd, If so, who these persons were. Thu giund
Jury In this particular wero iinublo to lasteli
on any particular person or persons. Hut
whllo no prosecution had nilscn from tho In
vestigation, the grand ury bellovo that it has
not full d to iiciompllsh some good. It was
shown thut nt the election referred to, men of
bad character wero present ot mauy of tlio
polllug stations acting ns captains.
This deplorable stato ot uffulrs. tho grand
Jury believed, would bo prevented if our
reputable citizens would exercise over tho
elections that supervision and scrutiny which
it was their pi Ivlkgu uud diitv to do. Proper,
persistent watching would bo successful In
crentlug a better stuto of things. Tho grand
Jury recommends that propiletors of Induing
houses bo compelled to icgistor thu full iiumo
or overy lodgci, nnd that piopcr action ho
taken to prevent tho Illegal practice of ofllecrs
of election signing In bhuik befoio the votes
Tiro properly collated and verified.
A WAK TO THE DEATH.
The Htrntrcle lletwccn (Senium Itovolu
tlntilHts unil thu Knlaer.
London, Oct. 11. It is now ns much
us n war to tho death between tho Ger
man rcvo utiouists nnd their ruler as it
has been fot years between the C.u- nnd
Mhlllsts, nnd for tlio fiituio it will bo
an uncc'ising contest between olllcial
watclifun-ss nnd n detcimincd cunning
that will bo content to wait for years
a favoiublo oppoitunity.
An added cause for ofl'enso bus been
given to the liberals by tho piloiilv of
tho Kuisci's visit to his Holiness. King
Ilumbeit willingly ngieed to the nr-lange-ment
as n meaningless diplomntlo
compliment, but it is well-known tlmt
some of his cabinet were averse to the
piogrnmmc white oven conservative
eiticutt aio loudly indignant lit what
they consider their monaich's lack of
proper dignity. Tlio itiedenlists mo
rather pleased than otherwise, tor they
can icfer to the incident us another pi oof
of tho thronn-iicd ictrogicsSion toward
despotism and the impossibility of ut
tuhiing llbeity while u fmgmont'ot mon
archical govprnnicnt rcinums.
It Is coiillduiitly stateel Hint lots wens
diawn in Switzerland and Italy, and
that tho pets ins thus chosen to shot ten
the Lmpeioi'f. rulgu wero two Germans
and ono Italian, and tljo weapons de
cided upon, slnglo handled pistols ot
heavy callbto. 'llio timo chosen was tho
moment when the pioposcd loval vic
tim sh uld sot his foot, upon the llrst
step of the grand stuiicaso of tho Vati
can. The shots wcro not to bo tired si
multaneously, and whether the flist
mnrlismnii' iiiis.MtdMliis aim or not tlio
other jAvn were to press forwnid while
the nttxmlitfU Of (the throng was drawn
to thu struggln of tho police and tho as
firtssin, nud deliberately kill tho Umpcror
during the confusion.
An nnoiiuv n telegram ftom the. Swiss
border gave these details and description
of tho selected Germans to thu Italian au
thoiitics, and their watchfulness ptrJ
vented tho cooly-ariangcd plan from be
ing carried out. Several uuosts have
been iundo ns n display of activity and in
tho hope of eliciting some information
concerning the plotters against tho Get
man Monarch's life, but they have eluded
detection ns yet, nnd, if lcports bo true,
have friends nnd sympathizers enough In
escry grade of bociety who will conceal
them until nn opportunity occurs of es
caping from tho countty.
To n tempcmuient sue-h ns that of tho
German Impcror, the life like thut of a
hunted animal -which is led by tho Czar
would bo unendurable and tho German
police have n tnsk of no ordinaiy mag
nitude iu shielding him against tlio at
tnoks of nssnssins, considering the op
portunities given to tho latter by Wil
hclm's out-of-door life.
Canada Feels Insulted.
Toronto, Ont., Oct. 11. Tho following
appeared in yesterday's issuo of tho
Empire, tho cliicf government organ of
Canada: lias it ever happened in the
history of tho world that ono country
took such libcity with tlio possessions of
another as tho United States uro taking
with Canada, without having icsolvcd
upon going to war with tho Insulted
After a long argument in the uegat ivc.
it says: Wo afo llvo millions ot lliitish
subjects, nnd, although iu the past wo
have submitted patiently to United
States interference by methods moro of
lensivo than lungunge can expicss, the
timo has at Inst arrived when nn both
sides of tlio international boundary all
fair-minded men must agree that the
dignity nnd houor of both countries call
for tho abandonment of an attitude which
conAcy.s u standing insult and menace to

tho gamo wero estimated In ndvauec at $100,
'llio chief consphator took Into his confi
dence other operutors possessing tho needful
degree of morul obliquity, nud wlo wcro ex
pert at their piofcsslon. A small three-story
housu standing within three-quarters of a mllo
of thctleiomcParkcoiiuu wus icutcd. In tlio
meantime electrical apparatus and material
wcro transported thither.
At Jcromj Pnrk thero aro thrco wires con
necting with Now York. Allot them wcro
under tho control of thu Western Union Cora
pany. Tho majority of tbo city pool rooms
get their news of tho laces by telephone from
tho operators' room of tho main Western
Union office. The messazes, of course, came
originally over the three wires mentioned.
The Hist thing the conspirators did wos to
tap these whes. They munnged to enlist a
lineman In tho employ of tho Wcsicrn Union
Company, who dug a trench between tho
houso and tho nearest telegraph polo and
dopusltcd tho connecting wiru thcrelu.
The man who strung tho wire becumo
frightened and remorseful while he wns prose
cuting his work In tho middle of tho night.
His state of mind demanded n conlldent and
he sought several. Trio secret thus got wind,
ilo abandoned tho work already done lu a
punle, leaving tho clandestine wires exposed
Tho operating-room was fitted up lu tho
basement of tho houo. He-re the telegraphers
slept on histlly-purebnsed furniture ot llio
rudest description. Their Now Yoik nccom
jillces, who were to do tho betting und get
possesion of thu money, wcro provided with
"Ups," so thut they would know ox idly how
to lay their wngcib. A cipher was cmpluicd
to keep up Intelligence between tho operators
uud these men, und between them and con
spirators In other cities.
Evury word that wus wired from Jciorao
Park for New York, or vlco vereaj would havo
passed ulong tho cable and Into thij den of tho
conspirators in the basement of the houso. If
It should provo to ba nn '-Innocent" message,
ono that would not fruitrnlo tlUryubemo, lim
operators would speed It on Its wift,. Hut If f.
wus tlio lesult of a rnco, it would bo bold nud

tho mssugo havo been, "First race, Yum
Yum llrst, Sam Harper second," tho names of
tho horses would have bee-u chunged In accord
ance with u schedule previously arranged by
tho plotters. i
Yesterday morning tho operators arose to
find tbat it had all been khocked into a
cocktd hat. ,
Tho cablo bad been dug up by tbo lineman
in a tit of conscience, and pieces of It bad been
flung Into tho bushes.
Thu disgusted conspirators lost no tlmo In
taking their cue. They know at once that tho

tlculurs show that tho disaster was un
like any ever seen beforo on tiio Lehigh
Valley Ifoad, or, indeed, in this country.
The wreck occurred at. Mud Hun, about
midway between Whitehaven and Pcnn

standing still, was run Into by tho second
section. The lust three cars of tho lirst
section, filled to overflowing, wcro tolully
wrecked and all tho passengers in tho

The last two cars wcro telescoped, and
tho passengers were cither crushed to
death or pressed against tho boiler and
burned to death.
The sceuo was heart-rending. It was

for tho sections ahead to get out of tho
vvuy. A biakcman, so thoy said, hud
been sent back with n hiutoin to gunid
