J. Duncan Harris, locomotive relict offi

the Southern Hotel. The position Mr. Har

"The Government of New Zealand owns
about 2,057 miles of track, which covers
both the North and South Island thorough
ly. There is a private concern operating a
road, but It consists of only ISO miles and
Is comparatively insignificant in connection
with the total mileage. Last year the net
receipts of the roads under Government
control were about SG.(Ssv). The cost of op
eration was S29,TSS. leaving a net profit to
the Government of 539.92S. or about $2,500,
000. "Wages on the railroads of New Zealand
are about tho same as in the United States.
Practically no trains are run on Sunday,
and, as wo have six national holidays a
J car. the railroad men do not work on
those days. We have no trouble in tile way
of strikes. In the island there is a law
governing, the employment of labor in all
branches of trade. If a dispute aritcs it
is left to a. board of six men, three mem
bers of which each conflicting party may
select. If they fall to arrive at a decision
it is taken to tho Court of Appeals and
from there to the Supremo Court. The law
works splendidly. While we have occasional
disputes, they are always settled in the man
"New Zealand is in a prosperous condi

This startling announcement threw tho
household into confusion, and tho parents
hastened to tho room. Sophia was lying un

not cold, and Mrs. Fowler saw at onco that
her daughter was not dead. Failing to arouse
Sophie, she sent for Doctor Tuttle. The
physician saw at a glance that tho child was
in a comatose condition often described as

GROSVENOR'S LATEST FIGURES.
Telia London That McKinley Will
Get 27S Votes Sure, Bryan 132.
Washington. Aug. C.-Representativo Gros
venor of Ohio has landed in London and
handed to tho newspaper correspondents
breathlessly awaiting his arrival his very
latest production as tho administration's
lightning calculator. General Grosvenor
worked It all out going over on the steamer
and when ho reached "dear old London" ho
was cock suro that his figures were right.
'If anything in them is wrong," he mod
estly exclaimed, "It is that I have under
estimated tho McKinley vote." Grosvenor
Elves theso States to McKinley, with a to
tal electoral vote of ITS seven more than
Mr. Hanna was ablo to get for his candi
date four years ago:
California, Connecticut. Delaware, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New
Hampshire, Now Jersey, New York, North
Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsjlvania, Rhodo
Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Washing
ton, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
To Bryan he gives these States with a
total electoral vote of 132 forty-four less
than Mr. Bryan received in 1S96:
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgla.Lou
islana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas
This leaves only thirty-four votes to
"scramble" for, and even If Mr. Bryan
should get all of theso he would bo defeated,
says Mr. Grosvcior.
It Is not doubted that General Grosvenors
British friends can easily understand what'
an easy tlmo of it Mr. McKinley is having
this year. According to General Grosvenor,
tho States of Kentucky, Nebraska, Utah
and Wyoming are doubtful, though ho de
clares tho Republicans have a mortgage on
nt least half of the electoral votis of theso
States. Ho thinks North Carolina, too,
will go against Bryan.
General Grosvenor admits that, "in ordi
nary' campaigns this would be rather early
to predict results, but under the circum
stances surrounding the present campaign
it is entirely safe."
The lightning calculator Is willing to ad
mit that possibly Bryan will get tho ten
votes of Colorado, Idaho and Montana, and
maybe thirteen more or his half of the
doubtful States and thus would tho Demo
cratic candidate secure a total of 153 votes
In the Electoral College.
In tha first estimate of tho season which
General Grosvenor gave out he put Mary
land In the doubtful column.nnd Mr. Hanna
repudiated him as tho administration's offi
cial calculator. Now that thq General has
placed Maryland in tho Republican column
it is believed Mr. Hanna has reinstated
The politicians hero say that Grosvenor's
estimate is evidence that he is spending
more time in tho London clubs than In the

Great Enthusiasm, Unanim

YOUNG MEN FAVOR DEMOCRACY.
University Organizations Have Ap
plied for Admission to the Na
tional Association of
New York, Aug. 5. Tho colleges are be
ginning to throng to the standard of Bryan
as they did In 1S9S. This year, however,
the movement Is characterized by greater
enthusiasm, greater unanimity, greater sys
tem. Numerous college clubs havo applied
for admission to tho National Association,
of Democratic Cluba, and tha movement
is gaining strength every day.
The University of Nebraska Bryan Club
was tho first of these organizations to ap
ply for and obtain a"dmlss!on into tho na
tional association. This, of course, is as It
should be, Nebraska being Bryan's Stata.
Tho -young men of tho Nebraska State Uni
versity formed a formidable organization
in '90. This year the club is stronger than
ever, and starts off with 200 members.
Tho students of tho University of Mich
igan havo also formed a Bryan and Stoven
son Club, which has applied for admission
Into tho national association, and other col
leges throughout the country are engaged
In forming similar clubs.
The members of these organizations are for
the most part young men who are about to
voto for tho first time, and tho fact that
so many of them are organizing shows the
deep interest taken in the issues of the day
by the youth of the country. The college
men aro anxious, too. to be represented In
the convention of Democratic clubs to bo
held at Indianapolis September 5, which will
be the largest convention of Democrats ever
held In this country.
Another important club to join the na
tional association is Cohoes Wigwam, No.
103, of the National Order of Mohawks. Tho
National Order of Mohawks is a secret po
litical society of great influence, with chap
ters in every part of the United States, and
the action of Cohoes Wigwam In Joining tho
