ant. The first campaigns in the four new States
will dose next Tuesday, when their political
complexion trill be decided. The Republi
cans expect to carry North and South
Dakota, and the chances are in their favor
in "Washington, but the Democrats arehope-
ful in Montana. Prohibition has compli
cated the issue in North Dakota, while the
other half has a fierce capital fight on hand.
The absence of legal candidates is notice
able. St. Paul, September 28. On Tuesday
next the voters of North Dakota. South
Dakota, Uontana and "Washington Terri
tories will cast their votes for or against the
several constitutions prepared for their con
sideration by the various constitutional
conventions, thereby announcing their birth
as States in the American "Union, and at the
same time they will choose officers whom
they wish to govern them at home and to
represent them at the National Capital.
North Dakota has had some local fights
which will undoubtedly affect the result on
local candidates in some sections, but will
have less influence on the general result It
has been considered by the Republicans
that they had
AN EAST T1CTOBT
before them, but the Democrats have not
altogether conceded this, it being claimed
by many that the result was very doubtful
and each was as likely to win as the other.
farmer John Miller, the Republican
candidate for Governor, has made a steady
fight- the tariff as it affects the farmer,
and the campainging done by the Demo
crats has tended to confute his arguments in
favor- the protective tariff. He has been
well supported by the Congressional candi
date, H. C. Hansborough, and on this issue
the fight has been waged.
The prohibition question has been some
thing of a factor in the campaign, but it was
largely separated from the party politics of
the day. It was submitted to the voters
with the constitution, to be separately voted
upon, and there seems to be a leeling that it
will not win, the stronger sentiment being
for high license.
Regarding the general result in North
Dakota, John M. Quinn, of Bismarck, a
newspaper man resident there for some
years, and abundantly able to judge as to
the situation, expresses the opinion that the
highest figure the Republicans should ex
pect is 5,000 majority, and that this may be
reduced to 1,000 or less.
He also thinks that the Democrats have a
very good chance of electing one or more
of their candidates, which chances would
have been much better had more ontside as
sistance been furnished them. He believes
that D. "W Maratta, the Democratic can
didate, stands a good show of being the first
Congressman, and that W. N. Roach, Demo
crat, may become the first Governor.
A LITTLE PREJUDICED.
Mr. Quinn is a strong Democrat, and his
opinion may be influenced by that fact, but
Bis estimate is based on the facts as reported
to him. On the other side John A. Rea,
also of Bismarck, a well-informed corre
spondent and a Republican, figures out a
Republican plurality of 11,000.
Between these two estimates was the Re
publican majority for Delegate from the
counties from which North Dakota was
formed, at the last Congressional election,
being about 7,000.
The farmer element has had much to do
with the campaign, and one peculiar result
may follow. Among the candidates for the
State Senate there is only one lawyer, J. A.
Frye, of Jamestown, and in case he should
be defeated that body would be in a predica
ment for Judiciary Committee timber.
ONE TEOUBLESOME QUESTION.
By the action of the constitutional con
vention in placing the public institutions,
.a big and troublesome question was disposed
f of in the North State, but that good for
tune was not vouchsafed the South Dakota
voters, and as a result the question of the
location of the State Capital has absorbed
most of the campaign workers in that State.
This was more easily the case, in view of
the fact that even the Democrats admit that
the general result is but a question of the
size of the majority that shall be given to
the Republican candidates for the State
offices and for the two seats in the next
Congress which were allotted to South
Huron and Pierre were the two chief com
petitor for the capital at the election of
1885, and the former won. There were other
y candidates at that time, but they were so
iar behind these two that they were not in
A BITTEB STRUGGLE.
Recently Redfield withdrew, and both
Huron and Pierre claim to have been the
greatest gainers thereby. Pierre has the j
support of the woonsocaei capital invest
ment Company, which has stockholders all
over the Territory, and by its purchase of
lands in Pierre and the consequent interest
of its stockholders therein, hopes to carry
the election in favor of that town.
By an investment in lands in the neigh
borhood of "Watertown by the Farmers Al
liance that town hopes for the support of
'sunyef the farmers. Sioux Palls claims
the honor by reason of its superior ability
to entertain the State's legislators. Each of
the others has some special element of
strength by which it hopes to secure the
Host of them have canvassed every county
in the new State, and have published the
size of the support they expect to receive.
According to these figures of each town, col
lected by and for itself, Huron leads, with
Pierre second and Sioux Palls a close third.
THE PROHIBITION ISSUE.
After the capital location, comes the deci
sion for or against prohibition of the liquor
traffic This is submitted as an amendment
to the Constitution, to be voted for at this
time. In their platform the Republicans
came out plainly and strongly in its favor,
and, although some individual organs and
partisans have bolted on prohibition, there
seems to be little doubt as to its success.
The Republican speakers' and candidates,
almost without exception, have argued this
question everywhere, and the party support
of it has been very general.
The present Territorial Governor, A. C.
Mellette, will undoubtedly be the first Gov
ernor of South Dakota, while the United
States Senatorships lie between Messrs.
Moody, Pettigrew and Edgerton, the first
and last of whom were chosen by the former
"wanted-to-be" State Legislature in 1885.
The big meetings, brass bands, literature,
etc, in South Dakota have all been dis
tributed on the capital question, and the
Territory has been ringing with the oratory
of the supporters of each aspirant, while
the ground has almost been covered with
VERY, TEST WABM.
There have been hot campaigns fought in
the older States at various times in the past,
but none of them can surpass this capital
contest in South Dakota, the interest in
which has been intense, and in fighting for
which every fair and unfair means is
claimed to have been adopted by some one
or another of the contesting towns.
It may be said certainly that the Dakotas
will elect Republican officers, that being
admitted by the Democrats, but nothing so
positive can be said concerning the result in
Montana. Captain Moffit, of this city, ex
presses the opinion that Montana will be
close, with the chances in favor of the Dem
ocrats, and that "Washington will be close,
with the advantage on the Republican side.
It is undoubtedly the case that in the
mountain State whatever losses the Repub
licans may suffer will result from over
confidence on the part of the National Com
mittee, but Republicans are working hard
and thorough at the close of the campaign.
The Republicans will have a net gain of
three votes in the House and four in the

Proyincetown, Mass., September 28.
Mrs. Mary Hutchinson, wife of the
skipper of the schooner 'Jennie Howard
Hutchinson, proved herself a veritble help
mate on the trip from Bangor, which was
ended to-day. She saved the vessel from
sinking by working at the pumps when the
crew were exhausted. But for her efforts
the schooner would have gone to the hot
ton. The Captain's wife is a small, trim
little woman, and the cabin, notwithstand
ing the rough usuage, is as neat as pin, and
has homelike appearance. She not only
manned the pumps, but also took her turn
at the wheel, and did all the cooking as
well. She accepted the situation very phil
osophically. "The vessel was all we had," said she,
"and if I could help in any way to save it,
it was my duty to do so. It was a little
rough when the seas wonld dash over the
vessel and into the cabin, but it was no use
to sit down and cry about it, and become a
hindrance to my husband and his crew, who
were so nearly exhausted, instead of a help.
I married my husband as a helpmate, and
now we are here all safe I am glad I came

rsrsciAL telegram to the dispatch.!
Leadville, September 28. Sheriff
Buchanan, of Ronth county, arrived last
evening, having in charge Joe Miller, who
assisted in the murder of two hunters near
the "Wyoming line, some time ago. The
case in which Miller is implicated is a
rather peculiar one. Two men, Escher and
Adams, it was supposed were lynched for
slaughtering deer, in order to get their
hides. The offense aroused considerable in
dignation, and eight men took it upon them
selves to do the lynching. One of the
officers, after investigating the matter,
showed that the whole affair was murder.
Adams was hanging when found, with his
feet just touching the ground, while Escher
had oeen beaten with a club.
Over$2,000which Adams is known to have
had in his possession is missing, and it was
plain that lynching was done in order to
get this money. Both Escher and Miller
came "West from Louisville, Ky., where
their folks are said to reside.

Chicago, September 28. A sensational
climax ended the Coroner's investigation
this evening into the "Washington Heights
railway disaster a day or two ago, by which
six suburban passengers on the Rock Island
road were killed and a dozen persons scalded
and mangled. The jnry had just returned
a verdict holding Engineer Seth Twombley
and Fireman Henry Lecloche responsible
for the wreck, and committing then to jail,
when Lecloche broke down, and admitted
having perjured himself in swearing Twom
bley was not drunk.
Tbe fireman then made an extraordinary
confession telling of his wild ride with a
drunken engineer, the son of the Master
Mechanic oi the road. Lecloche intimated
that the compulsion from high officials of
the company had prompted Tiini to lie. The
testimony of other trainmen than Lecloche
preceding the verdict, while not preclud
ing drunkenness on the partof the engineer,
had intended to show the latter's absolute
sobriety. It was brought out, however,
that Twombley had been suspended three
times during his service with the company
for being drunk, and a year ago was dis
charged. He was re-employed by his father
the Master Mechanic The Master Mechanic
produced David Buissono, an engineer em
ployed by the company, who took the stand
and testified that 25 minutes before Seth
Twombley started out he was perfectly sober.
"When the jury came in with a verdict,
notwithstanding' this testimony, sweepingly
condemning Twombley and Lecloche, and
censuring other trainmen and the company,
Lecloche was the only directly interested
person in the small crowd present! He
blanched visibly and asked for a private
talk with Police Lieutenant Healy. The
result was a voluntary open statement by
At this point the fireman broke down
completely and cried like a child. He was
led away in charge of a policeman. The
fireman was only recently married, and is a
fine looking young fellow, though his face
is not a strong one Engineer Seth Twom

London, September 28. The re-election
of Mr. Chaplin for the Sleaford division by
the majority almost similar to that which
he received at the last contested election,
gives no indication of enlightened growth
in the electors' mind in that district. Slea
ford is mainly an agricultural area, and the
poor laborers" there have not yet fairly real
ized that the ballot is secret They vote
largely in accordance with the dictation of
the 'Squire and parson, and this has been
particularly the case in the present election.
But with ail this in his favor, and in spite
of the reluctance which is n well-known
characteristic of British politics to oppose a
minister seeking re-election or promotion,
Chaplin succeeded in adding only seven
votes to his former majority in Sleaford.
Therefore, the balance of political strength
is practically unaltered since 1885, and the
Tories profess to derive much comfort there
from. They forget or ignore the fact, re
ferred to not infrequentiyin this correspond
ence, that if the general election shows the
same return to the 1885 position, the Home
Rulers will have a majority of at least 160.

Oliver R. Johnson, of Indianapolis, Vice
Consul of the United States in London, paid
a visit to Paris this week,- and had an ex
perience there which threatens to strain the
relations between our country and France.
Johnson had occasion to go to Neiully, out

he employed the ordinary "fiacre" of Par

Vice Consul has, in the course of his career,
ascnmnlated a vast amount of ignorance of

when he was halted at tbe city gate by a

by policemen and Johnson, '

firmly while the vehicle was thoroughly
searched. The only word that the Vice
Consul could understand in response to his
frenzied inquiries for an explanation was
"poulet," which tbe brief period of his resi

reference to a barnyard fowl. "When John
son laid the matter before Consul General
Rathbone, of Paris, he was informed that
his carriage was searched in order to ascer

Boulanger has spent the past week in en
deavoring to explain his defeat, and to per
suade tbe world that he is as big a man as
he was a week ago. The effort has not
been very successful, because the explana
tions have been too frequent and varied.
The only point upon which Boulanger
seems to be positive is that electors were
bribed by Government gold, and ballot
papers manipulated by ministerial myr
midons. The anti-Boulangists have esti
mated the General's expenditure upon the
recent elections as 2,000,000 francs, while
Bonlanger's partisans assert with confidence
that 10,000,000 francs were taken from the
service fund for purposes of electoral cor

Captain "William R. Jones died v8ry "un
expectedly about 10:30 last night at tne
Homeopathic Hospital from the effects
of the burns received in the recent accident
at the Edgar Thomson. Mike Zuinn, an
other victim, passed away also yesterday
morning at the Mercy Hospital, Mrs. Jones
is almost prostrated with grief. Only doc
tors and nurses were at the bedside when
the Captain died.
Captain "W,. R. Jones died at the Homeo
pathic Hospital at 1030 o'clock last night.
The immediate cause of death was collapse
of the system. His death makes the fourth
resulting from Thursday's accident at Brad
dock. The esteemed gentleman, valiant
soldier, and kindly friend has passed away,
and there will be grief in many a honse to
day when the sad tidings become known.

other martyr to duty, in perfect peace, as he
died withont experiencing any pain.
During the morning he had had a sink
ing spell in which he lost consciousness, but
toward noon he rallied somewhat, and was
able to recognize Colonel Slack, the super
intendent and those around him. Hopes at
this time were entertained that he
would pull through, but toward evening he
again relapsed into unconsciousness and re
mained so without growing worse until the
time ot his death, when he sank into ever
lasting repose without giving a sign.
the doctobs consulted.
B-Burgtar had' been in consultation a.t,hta
bedside a few moments 'previous to the end,'
and they had not looked for any immediate
change, but scarcely had they left the hos
pital when Colonel Slack hastened after them
to the corner of the avenue to inform
them of the occurrence. Dr. Wilson, and
the nurse were present at the time, as well
as an employe, and they at first could not
realize that the eventful change had come,
but on making certain, messengers were
at once dispatched to the relatives and
friends and the Coroner notified. So unex
pected was the end that none of the deceased
soldier's relatives were present
They were expected during tbe day and
when at 11:45 at night his sister, Mrs. Bow
man, and his brother arrived to inquire
after him they were heartbroken at learning
of his death. Mrs. Bowman would
hardly credit the news which
Colonel Slack broke to her
as gently as possible, and both he and Miss
"Wright," the Supervising Nurset did what
they could to comfort the sorrowing lady.
Shortly before midnight H. C. Frick ar
rived, and was greatly shocked at learning
of the end.
Mrs. Bowman and Mr. Jones went to Brad
dock by the late train to convey the tidings
to the family. Among the great number of
callers during the day were H. C. Frick
and Mr. Lander.
Arrangements will be made to-dav for the
conveyance of the body to the Captain's late
home. Mike Quinn, another one ot the
victims of the accident, died at the Mercy
Hospital also yesterday morning.
A VEBY POPTJLAB MAN.
It goes without saying that Captain Jones
was the most popular man In Braddock,
and anyone having a doubt in tbe matter
would be quickly relieved on visiting that
borough built of iron. Everywhere kindly
expressions of pity and sympathy were
heard for tbe gallant soldier on his death
bed, and everywhere were allusions made to
his goodheartedness, his kindness to his
men, and his care for the suffering and the
poor. Many were the tales told
of the widows and orphans whom
he had succored, and whom he
made happy in permanent honses of their
own, in every case drawing on his private
resources to aid in these charita
ble works, and doing it all in
the quiet, business-like way so char
acteristic of the man. As he himself
was generous and jnst, he desired that those
under his control should be likewise.
One instance was related, dealing with an
epbode that occurred during the strike
of some six years back. At that
time the men who were ont were
at the end of their resources and often
wanted food. They were obliged to run
long bills on credit with provision dealers
for the necessaries of lite. Among others
who assisted the strikers in this way was an
old and disabled former employe who, alone
in the world, eked out an existence by run
ning a small grocery store.
wouldn't pat their debts.
Many of the men, when work was finally
resumed; owed him sums of from $20 to $70,
but declined to make any arrangements for
paying him, -who had stood by.them in their
need. After bearing with them for
three or four years, the old grocer
concluded he would state his case to
the captain. He did so, and each
of the delinquents was called up before the
gallant soldier who read them a severe
lecture on their want of manliness and
common honesty, and concluded by inform
ing them that unless 'hey made arrangemen ti
to pay off their indebtedness in monthly
instalments they should have to find work
elsewhere. The lesson was salutary, and
the men paid up. This was but one of a
number of similar incidents ia which Cap
tain Jones exercised his power tor the pro
tection ot the injured.
In another case he called down one of the
bosses, who held a very responsible position,
for putting in relatives and friends in posi
tions regardless of their fitness and over the
heads of more deserving men.
UE DECIDED TO QUIT.
He was given the option of dismissing his
men or quitting himself. He elected to
quit, It may well be said that Captain
Jones fulfilled the duties of his position, not
only with strict impartiality, but abo with
keen appreciation of the wants and'saf
ferings of his fellow man.
Captain William Richard Jones was bora
in Luzerne county, Pa., February 23, 1886.
He was the elder child of Rev. John G.
Jones, who emigrated to this coun
try from Wales in 1832. His
father's poor health compelled
him to begin work at the age of 10, when
he was apprenticed to the Crane Iron Com
pany, of Catasauqua.
In July, 1862, he enlisted as a private ia
Company A, One Hundred and Thirty-third
Pennsylvania Volunteers, and 'was pro
moted to Corporal. He was badly hurt at
the crossing of the Rapidan before the battle,
but rpfnspd tn Ipava tha ran tit. ftlthnnirh suf
fering greatly. At the expiration of his'
term he re-entered the service oi tne uam
bria Iron Company. .
In the capacity of Commander of the Bal
timore Provost Guard Captain Jones be
haved with his usual tact and courage, and
was publicly complimented by General Lew
GOING 10 THE EDGAB THOMSON.
Honorably mustered out June 17, 1665, he
again entered the Cambria Iron Company
as assistant to the chief engineer, and aa
such, assisted in , the construction
of the Cambria Company's Bessemer
steel-converting and blooming-mill
plants. He subsequently became master
mechanic, and finally General Superinten
dent of the Edgar Thomson Steel Company
and directed the building of furnaces A, B,
C, D, E, Fand G, the third of whieh was
destined to become the cause of his untimely
His improvements and inventions, have
made these furnaces the finest in the world.
Captain Jones' inventions are as numerous
as they are useful. The first were "A De
vice for Operating Ladles in Bessemer Pro
cess," and "Improvements in Hose
Couplings," patented December 12.1876.
In the same month he also patented fasten
ings for Bessemer converters. His other
more important patents- were washers for
ingot molds, 1876; hot beds for bending
rails, 1877; apparatus for compressing ingots
while casting ingot molds, 1878; cooling roll
journals and shafts, 1881; feeding appli
ance for rolling mills, and art of
making railroad bars, 1886; appliance
for rolls, apparatus for removing
and setting rolls, housing caps for rolls,
roll housings, 1888; and apparatus for re
moving ingot? from molds, 1889.
BIS LATEST AND BEST.
Hislatett and greatest invention is a
method for mixing metal, taken from blast
furnaces and charged into two receiving
tanks. Letters patent on this invention
have been allowed, but are not yet issued.
In 1888 Captain Jones was appointed
consulting engineer to Carnegie, Phipps &
Co. He was a member of the American In
stitute of Mining Engineers, the Ameri
can Society of Mechanical Eagi-t
neers, the Engineers' Society of
"Western Pennsylvania, and the
Iron and Steel Institute of Great Britain.
He is a prominent G. A. R. member, and
was, in 1888, chosen Senior Vice Commander
ot Pennsylvania. He was a Freemason
and a staunch Republican.
Captain Jones had four children, only two
of whom now survive, namely, a son, "W.
M. C. Jones, now engaged as engineer in
the Edgar Thomson Steel "Works, and a
daughter, Cora. Both children have at
