NEW YOBX, Nov. 9.Fair weather pre
vailed throughout the State and a large vote
was thrown in tins city. The interest
here centered in the contest be
tween Fellows and Nicoll for district at
torney in New York County, and there
were rumors in plenty, believed to be
based upon fact, that both Bepublicans and
Democrats traded the State ticket for votes
for their cadidates for the district-attorney
ehip. The returns from New York and Kings
counties indicate a majority for Cook (Dem.),
candidate for Secretary of State, over
Grant (Hep.), of about 65,000. The Herald
bulletin Bays the State has gone Democratic
by from 10,000 to 12,000 majority. The
Sun. says Henry George's vote will not reach
60,000 in the State The Prohibition vote
was light in this city. Many arreste for il
legal voting were made.
The complete vote for district attorney is:
Fellows (Dem), 93,906 Nicoll (Ind Dem.
and Rep), 73,004 Post (United Labor), 30,-
603 Fellows' plurality, 20,902. The Bepub
licans explain their local defeat by say
ing that the Bepublicans who went for
George last year have staid by him, while
the Democrats have gone back to their
party. The vote for George in the city is
under 40,000, a falling off of nearly one
third from the vote he polled
last year for mayor. The loss is
attributed to the Progressive Labor
vote only to the extent of less than
6,000 votes. Fellows' majority over Nicoll
is considered by the Democrats a very de
cided victory, as Several journals have bit
terly attaked his personal character, the
World, Times and Evening Post of this city
being specially hostile, while the New York
un championed his cause.
SYRACUSE, N. Y., NOV. 9.This city, com

COLUMBUS, 0.,NOV. 9.Early returns to
the Bepublican State Executive Committee
showed extraordinary Republican gains,
but the ratio of gain has been kept up,
and it is likely that it will continue.
Chairman Cappeller says that he would not
be surprised if the State went for For
aker by 40,000 majority. The cities have
done the work, and the gains from Cincin
nati are tremendous. The State has surely
gone Bepublican by 30,000, and
possibly 40,000, while the Legisla
ture will be Bepublican in both branches.

either party, although its adherents claim
that they will have 40,000 votes in the

Lieutenant-Governor, and Sabin (Rep.),
for Superintendent of Public Instruction
by somewhat larger majorities. This is ex
plained by Bepublican revolts against the
Clark law, many voters reasoning that Lar
rabee would veto any change of the law to
ward license, and they scratched him main
ly on this ground.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 9.At 12 o'clock
eighteen counties in the State outside of
Philadelphia had been heard from. These
counties give a net Democratic gain of
9,196 on the vote for State Treasurer in
1885, when Quay (Rep.) received a plurality
of 43,316. Hart's (Rep.) majority in the
State will be about 25,000, and Williams'
(Rep.) for Supreme Judge about the same.

CHICAGO, Nov. 8.-The finding of four
dynamite bombs in Louis Lingg's cell on
Sunday morning, combined with the news
of George Engel'B attempted suicide late
Saturday night, threw everybody into a
state of anxiety yesterday. The jail officiate
were as nervous as outsiders.
Sheriff Matson reported thereBullTofthe
analysis of the bomba In each of them
was found a sufficient quantity of the dead
ly explosives to create havoc and desolation
wherever exploded. Lingg himself would
make no accusations of their being placed
in his ceh. by outside parties, although his
comrades did not hesitate to do so.
Lingg denied that he knew any thing
about the existence of the bombs in a box
when examined by Jailor Folz on^the sub
ject Mr. Folz, however, believes that
Engel knew about them being in Lingg's
Yesterday afternoon Mr. W. Salter, who
has been working in company with H. D.
Lloyd to secure the signatures of promi
nent citizens to a request for commuta
tion of the sentence against the
Anarchists, asked Spies to say plainly what
he knew about the bombs found in
Lingg's cell Sunday. Spies wrote the fol
lowing, and to it are appended the signa
tures of Fielden and Schwab: m$M. tf
"CHICAGO, 111.,Nov. 7, 1887.-^16\Salter: litis
useless for me and my friends to say that we
had no knowledge of any thing of the kind.
No sane man would have bombs in his cell
or countenance any such a thing in a ceU
think of it Isubject to search at any moment
and at all times. The first intima
tion I received of the matter came from. Sheriff.
Matson last evening. I could not believe it at
first, and can hardly believe it now! I
haven't spoken to Lingg forI think
nine months. I don't know much of him,
but I think that he is a monomaniac.
Had only seen him once or twice be
fore we were put together and charged with
'conspiracy.' I don't believe that a single one
of the other prisoners had even as much as a
suspicion, for, otherwise, they would
undoubtedly have reasoned the man
out of hfs folly. What use was he going to
make of the shells? Throw them into the Jail?
What intention, what object could there have
been in such an undertaking? I repeat, no sane
man would be capable of such a thing.
Lingg, as far as I can judge him, seeks to*
be martyred, and, to be candid, would like the
rest of us to go with him. Did he put those
instruments into his cell so that they might
be found? This is the question I
have been asking myself. If he had
them there for any purpose this is the only one
that looks plausible to me. He wants to die,
thinking thereby to help the cause of labor.
But he wanted us to die also. Perhaps
he thought that the best and surest way to
bring this about was to place a few bombs in
his cell. I have never met as peculiar
a man as he is before in my life, and for almost
a year I have considered him a monomaniac,
and have had nothing to do with him.
"You ask me to condemn his action. It's
useless to condemn the action ot an irrespon
sible man! If any one holds us, or any one of
us, responsible for Lingg's deeds, then I can't
see why we shouldn't be held responsible for
any mischief, whatsoever, committed in the
world. And it has actually come to that. We
are being made the scapegoats for every thing.
Very sincerely yours, A. SPIES."
"It is the merest nonsense, a canard, a fake,
a put-up job to create a sensation and manu
facture popular prejudice. How in the world
could bombs gat into Lingg's cell unknown to
those whose sole business it is to see that
no such things can get there? Incredi-*
ble! They say these bombs found in
Lingg's cell are seven inches long and one
inch in diameter, and there were four of them.
There is no aperture in wire gratings through
which missiles could get in anyhow. Or have
the oblig ng guards at the inspection room
(a little partition where packages for prison
ers are examined) been passing up bombs to
Lingg's cell? Remember our cells were
searched about three or four weeks ago,
and the scrutiny has been redoubled since.
Nothing was found then. Well, it was
impossible for bombs to go to Lingg without
the knowledge of the officials. It was not im
possible that some one of the many persons
who have had ready access to his cell put them
there during the exercise hour, or put them
there after he was taken out of his cell.
There are those in this community who
would not hesitate a moment to put up
such a job on the Anarchists. Lingg could
have no use for bombs in the jaiL It would
be simply impossible to use them, and it would
be impossible to get them without de
lection. Those bombs, if they were
really found there, were put there by
some one whose business it was to find
them there. They could not get into the cell
in any other way. This last find of bombs is
in keeping with the many other fakes lately
thrown upon the community. The story is too
thin. It won't wash. Now, I don't impute a
conspiracy to the jail authorities. I believe
both Folz and Matson are honorable men.
Such has, at any rate, been their treatment of

Bigued by Spies, Schwab and Fielden is as

any body at the Haymarket or anywhere else
