STRIKING OFF NAMKS.
Mr. Mudd Says the Maryland Registra
tion Law U ? Boomerang.
THE SITUATION AS PICTUBED FRO* A BEPCBLI
CAN STANDPOINT?AS MAST DEMOCRATIC AS
BEPUBLICAN VOTES LOST IN TBB Kirm DIS
TBICT?THE SITUATION IS THE STAT*.
There is no doabt that Maryland has a larger
representation in Washington of persons
claiming residence and the right to vote in
that state than has any other state of the
Union. The new registration and election law
in that state has. therefore, boen a matter of
the greatest interest to citizens here.
Representative Mudd was found by
a reporter of the Stab at republican
headquarters today and talked freely about
the working and effect of the new law. "It
has been and will contiuue to be
unsatisfactory to both parties," said
Mr. Mudd, "Since that party has been able
to Judge in a measure what the effect of the
new law is going to be. I think the democrats
are as much opposed to the law as the republi
intended fob the fifth distbict.
"The new registration law found its birth in
the fifth district, which I represent, and was
originally intended to apply only to tho coun
ties of that district. The bill was so intro
duced in the Maryland legislature and
so reported from the committee. Tho demo
crats perceived, however, tho hopelessly un
constitutionality of legislating against certain
counties in tho matter of registration and tho
law was extended to apply to tho entire
state. The fifth district, however,
is what was aimed at and wbero by far the
greatest number of names bave boen struck off.
In the district I should say 2,600 or 2,700 names
have been stricken from the registration list
"I have no doubt that tho democratic party
had an idea that they woro going to strike tho
republicans cf tho fifth district a death blow
by their law, but when the names which have
I been cut off from the lists are counted
| up it will be found that the losses by this
I means will be just about equally divided be
I tween tho two partieB. In tho counties
in tho fifth directly bordering on Wash
ington more democrats have been
stricken off than republicans while
in the lower counties the opposite is
found. When tho judges ruled that those hold
ing federal office, those whose parents resided
in the district and those who had lelt their fam
ilies in the district should not be (cut off
from voting it resulted in a gain tor the repub
licans. Likewise nearly all the appeals which
were being beard before the circuit court were
from republicans, and on account ol these ap
peals a number of names have been put back
on the lists. If the appeals are decided in
a fair manner I think the new registration law
will havo the effect of adding 300 to tho repub
lican vote in the fifth district.
THE REST OF TUB STATE.
"No, tho rest of the itate did not suffer in
this respect anything like this district I pre
sume there were as many names stricken off
in the fifth as in all the rest of the state put
together. But in nearly every section the law
will prove a bomerung for tho democrats.
"Ob. yes, the democrats will gain one Con
gressman in Maryland. The fourth district
now represented by Mr. Stockbridge was ger
rymandered in such a way as to leave very
little hope for a republican, but rest assured 1
am going to bo elected in tho fifth."
TALK ABUUT"*THK CENSUS.
A "Star" Reporter's Chat With Super
THE CENSUS OFFICE CAN TAKE 50 ACTIO* IN
THE NEW YORK CASE UNTIL MA YOB GRANT
BENDS IN HIS TESTIMONY?THE CENSUS FORCE
TO BE BXDCCKD.
If there is a hurann being in this city who
eould conscientiously sit for a picture of health
that individual is Robert P. I'orter, superin
tendent of the eleveuth census. IIo was down
at his office this morning in good season, re
vived by his trip to England, and met with a
welcome that would have been futiguiug to any
man not in the best physical condition. Every
body suid tbey were glad to see him and every
body looked or seemed to look as though they
were truthful up to the average. Then
thore were fiorul greetings. The division
of manufactures contributed a magnificent
willow vase-shaped something, which was
painted white and gold and filled with roses
and maideu hair fern. From the eleventh divi
sion?that which wrestles with statistical infor
mation ns to farms, homes and mortgages?
cume a basket of fruit; pears and grapes and
apple* aud bananas and orauges. Individuals
had also contributed to the beautifuUproducts,
which scented an atmosphere that but a few
days ago was heavily luden with New York pro
fanity of a peculiarly lurid variety, one pri
vately presentod basket being noticeably lovely.
"The work of the census is moving along
quite smoothly," said he to a Stab reporter
who called. "Everything is progressing satis
THE NEW TOBK CITY CENSUS.
"What about the New York census?" queried
"That is entirely out of my hands," replied
Mr. Porter. "I have nothing whatever to do
with it The office requested Mayor Grant to
produce testimony in support of his claims, but
this he has failed to do. Without such testi
mony the census office could tako
no action, aud yet Mr. Grant has
appealed to the Secretary of tho Interior. His
action in the matter would be very much liko
that of a lawyer who would appear iu court,
make an announcement of that fact, then get
mad with the judge because testimony was de
manded of him and fiually say: 'I won't make
my case plain; I will appeal to a higher court.'
The New York caso is not a matter with which
I havo anything to do; there is nothing in it
for me to consider."
"When will reductions of the census force
commence? Maybe about the 1st of November,
perhaps not until tho 15tb. The removals will
be gradual aud will only take placo as the work
lessens in quantity. I did not expect to mako
discharges so soon, but there was great pros
sure for placo and the force has been larger
than 1 had originally intended it should be.
By the end of December there will probably
bo less employes by 500 than there now are.
At present the pay roll has 2,300 numos on it"
CLOSING UP THK CAMPAIGN.
Confidence at Republican Headquar
ters?Talk of Using Money Lavishly.
News was not an article of the most extrava
gant abundance at the republican headquar
ters today. What was to be found was of a very
general character. The committee are espe
cially busy just now in closing up the cam
paign, mailing the final documents and
putting things generally in ship-shape order
for the 4th proximo. There can be no doubt
that confidence in a republican victory this
year is to be found in large quantities
at headquarters. The managers, how
ever, say that during the last
few days the democrats have been making a
lavish use of money in all the doubtful dis
tricts. Iu one district, H is said, f 5,000 has been
put in by tho democrats in the last few days.
The republican managers look on this as the
prearranged democratic program to hold the
cash until near the end of the canvas and then
flood the country. Where all this money is
coming from or exactlv where it Is going the
republican managers ao not state.

Losdojc, Oct 27.?Nellie T. Picrcer. the
Woman arrested on suspicion of having mur
dered Mrs. Hobbs, whose body was found fear
fully mutilated in a remote part of South
Hampstead on Friday night last, was brought
before the police court at South Hampstead
this morning for preliminary examination,
llobbs, the husband of the murdered woman,
was placed upon the stand, and during the
rigorous examination which followed admitted
the existence of a liassou between the prisoner,
"elite Plercey, and himself. It was brought
out in the testimony that Hobbs posseted a
latch key to the woman's house. "The witness
admitted that his visits to his mistress dad been
frequent, and that he had no suspicion of his
Wire g knowledge of his criminal relations with
A TERBlnLE riOHT.
Evidence given by the polico and others,
who visited tho residence of the woman
I iercey, showed that a terrible light must have
taken place in the kitchen between the uifuri
ated women. Tho windows were smashed, the
furniture splashed with blood and the weapons
used in the awful struggle were found with
clots of blood and locks of got} hair adhering
to them. It was also shown that after the com

made to remove the blood stains. l'arafine had

This morning's papers extol the activity of
the South Hampstead police and detoctives in

of conclusively proving the identity of the
murderer of Mrs. Hobbs and compare their ef

Reviewing the Career of C. W. Robin
sou, the 3Iassurhtisetts Forger.
Bbocsto*, Miss.. Oct 27.?The che?kcred
career of C. W. Robiiison. the stockbroker of
this city, who has forged notes amounting to
upward of $100,000, is being reviewed today by
nearly every business man who had trans
actions with him. It is known that Bobinson
went to Boston Friday afternoon, since which
time his doings and whereabouts are unknown
Another fact came to light todav which shows
that he lias pursued a criminal course for some
months if not for years. In conversation with
Mr. S. H. Howard, his partner. Bol>in?on ad
mitted that within six months he had placed
nearly *30.000 forged paper and had taken care
of it, and if his partner would only keep quiet
for a few days he would provide for the forced
paper now out
Considerable fault is found with the parties
who hold this forged paper for not liiakine it
kuown to his partners that they might be on
the lookout for more such transactions, but
these parties state that they considered Mr
Kobinson an upright citizen and that they did
not wish to blight the man's character for one
misdeed. Messrs. Howard and Goldthwaite
admit that notes held by the Home National
Hank amounting to nearly tJO,000 bear their
indorsements and will be met, yet the names of
the makers of these said notes are forged. It
is stated that tbe Brockton National Bank holds
about *14,000 with Howard and Goldthwaite
signatures which are forgeries. Mr. Gold
thwaite admits losing about #30,000 by these
transactions and Mr. Howard has lost fully as
large an amount Several who have been unite
intimate with the absconder think that losses
will amount to more than *150,000.
Sir. liobinson, as clerk of the police court of
this city, has not rendered an account for sev
eral months, it is thought that several crooked
transactions will be unearthed. Mayor Douc
las hold a consultation wiih Bobinson with re
gard to this matter about ten davs ago, and tho
latter agreed to furnish a statement last Satur
day, but no account has yet been filed. Amon
Bobinson s paper* was found ? carefully drawn
sheet, showing some notes that are believed to
be out, but where they are placed is a mystery
as opposite each eutry are characters that can
only bo read by him. These notes amount to
several thousand dollars, and some are thought
to be held in Taunton and Abington. It is ex
pected that a more definite statement will be
made public today, as certain parties are ex
pected here who will throw some light upon
the deeds that Bobinson has committed.

Oermany has also another difficulty of a com
mercial nature oil haud with England. The
English are maintaining a virtual embargo
against cattle from Schlosswig-Uolsteiu, al
though the province ia notoriously free from
disease. Cattle from the llauisti Islands uud
Jutland arc freely imported into England,
wtiile the chief export of the 1'russiau prov
ince is rigidly excluded. The motive for thia
is hard to understand, unless it is a rcuiuant of
the old Hanoverian dislike for Prussia.
