may constitute a' standard method
of obtaining Uhe suffrages of the

however, calculated to concentrate
the best wisdom of a nation in its
legislative halls. The party least
equipped for such tactics will pro
bably be left behind in the contest.
But the electorate simple enough to
allow itself to be made the, base of

in the issue. It is not from the

Rio Grande road. A strikers' meet
ing was held the previous afternoon
at which incendiary speeches wcio
made. About five hundred men and
forty or hlty women assembled in
the vicinity of the shops in the
morning, and several inflammatory
speeches were made, songs sung and
general demonstrations of defiance
indulged in. One of the yard men
returning to work was set upon by
the crowd, knocked down, kicked
and cut about the face in the most
brutal manner. The other workmen
were escorted through the crowd by

Sarah Althea Hill, or Mrs. Sena
tor Sharon, on Monday, 18th inst.,
called at the office of Itcuben II.
ILloyd, attorney, and demanded an
affidavit setting forth-his belief that
she was of good moral character.'
The lawyer declined, for private rea
'soiis that he promised to give tho

Waxing furious over the refusal,
Sarah whipped out a nickel-plated
ircvolver and stuck it under Lloyd's
iiiose. He was too quick for her,
though, aud slamming the door be

effectually witli a spring lock the

.after noisy demonstrations outside,
was spirited away by some friends.

to her character.
