TWO SENATORIAL FIGHTS.

THE REPUBLICANS CARET TIIE COU.NTI
At midnight 19 districts from Allegheny
county had been heard from, showing a net

187& If this ratio is maintained, Secretary
Miller says the majority in the county will
be not less than 22,000. Harrison's major

that hour thought his estimate of 21,000
Bepublican majoritv for the countv would
As was expected the national ticket takes
precedence over the local, and the results
were snail-like coming in. From the few dis
tricts returned Dalzell was running ahead
of the ticket. So iar Jerry Dougherty
for the Senate in the Forty-third district,
did well. He 6hows up with gains in the
First ward, where he is quite popular. The
Bepublican majority in this Senatorial dis
trict is about 2,000, and it is believed that
Uppermin will have not less than from
1,000 to 1,200 to spare.
.Sothinc of zny account basbcen received
from the Stcele-Snee fight on the Southside.
The district is Bepublican by 2,600, and the
leaders claim that Steele will have a major
ity of at least 2,000 for the Senate.
Achefcon's I lection Predicted.
In the Twentv-fourth Congressional dis
. trict, Bcgister Connor, who is familiar
with the situation, said that Achcson
would win by 900 votes. He figured that
Greene will come tip with 2,000 and Fayette
irom 400 to GOO against him. His majority
was put at 1,000 in "Washington and 2,400
in Allegheny county.
C It Magee left the fire alarm office
about 9 o'clock and at midnight had
not returned. Chairman Gripp read
a bogus telegram stating that Alabama
had gone Democratic bv 67,000. This nro
duced a loud laugh. Chief Bigelow said
his wife had asked him to come home early.
He believed he would obey her. Andy
Robertson, to keep up the spirits of the
boys, insisted that the returns on the gen
eral result came from Democratic sources.
In the Twentv-second Congressional dis
trict John Dalzell, Bepublican, won out
easily, as everyone expected. His oppo
nent, James Breen, never claimed he had a
chance to win, having asserted some time
ago that, while there was no chance of be
ing elected, he was having a lot of inn out
ot his candidacy. John Dalzell has already
served two terms in Congress, representing
Lis district with dignity and success. Un
der the circumstances, Jlr. Dalzell is not
now expected to make a fight against Quay
lor united states senator.
Stone "Wins an Easy Victory.
"William A. Stone, Bepublican, carried
the Twenty-third Congressional district
against Frank C Osburn. Democrat, with
out an effort. Colonel Stone has served
one term in Congress. He has great
Btrenzth among the young men of the party
and has promised to present bills providing
lor restricting immigration at the next
Emanuel "Wertheimer and Charles A.
Muehlbrouncr, Bepublican candidates in
the First Legislative district, were both
successlul. There was only one Democratic
candidate, Edward G. Lang. This is Muehl
bronner'sfirNt election to the Legislature
and Wertheimer's first.
"William T. Marshall and William J. Mc
Donald are the winners in the Second dis
trict. They are Bepublicans, Marshall be
ing an old timer in the Legislature. Mc
Donald is an assistant in the United States
District Attorneys ofijee, a voting man,
and this is nis fir t try in State politics.
The Democratic can udates were J. M.
Morrow and John McGarvey.
Michael B Lemon and Archibald Mack
rell, Bepublicans, will represent the Third
district in the next Legislature. Lemon
hp.s been there many a time before, but
Mackrell is a new man. O. K. Gardner and
G. B. Acklin are the defeated Democratic
John Kearns, Democrat, hail a walkover
in the Fourth district, his only opponent
being a People's party man. This is the
second time lor Krcrns.
A Qaartcttc or Kepnblican "Winners.
Samuel M. Lafferty, "W. M. CuIberUon,
David E. Weaver and Emractt Cotton, all
Bepublicans, are winners in the Fifth dis
trict. They have all been there before and
their opposition this time was not a cir
cumstance. Jotepli T. Bichey and Samuel Wallace
had no difHcultv in winning on the Benub-
lican ticket in the Seventh di-trict,the onlv
Democratic candidate being Joseph Bobin- I
ton. Samuel E. Stewart, Bepublican, from
the Eighth district, is returned with a com-
Hon. Edwin H.Stowe'a re-election as Judge
of Common Pleas Court No. 1 was prac
tically unanimous. Judge Stone is a Be
publican but made no effort to secure the
nomination. The Democrats placed him
on their ticket but the People's party put
up Attorney William Bird agai:.st him
jnst to fill out their ticket. Su Justice in
the County Court enjoys more general pub
lic confidence than Judge Stowe.
Heber McDowell was triumphantly re
elected to his third term as Coroner of Alle
gheny county. His success was assured from
the start, his record for integrity and devotion
to his duties in office making him a candi
date of great formidability. Alderman F.
M. King, his Democratic opponent,
acknowledged defeat two weeks ago.
Henry Ochse was elected over John
Zwick, Democrat, for Director of the Poor
without trouble. Mr. Ochse has filled the
office before and previous to Mr. Cleve
land administration was postmaster of
The Situation at 1 O'Clork.
At 1 o'clock retnrns from 28 districts an
Pittsburg were received indicating a net
gain of 102 rotes. Chairman Gripp said
not enough wards naa dc neard irom to base
an estimate of the majority in the county.
No reports had been received from outlying
distriots, and only a lew precincts lrom
Allegheny had come in.
Every one was surprised at the good show
ing made by Jere Doherty. From the
figures received it looks as if Upperman
would not have more than 600 of a majority,
if any. The Democrats concentrated their
efforts in the interest of the young mill
worker. Hii gains were large in all dis
tricts where the labor vote predominates.
In 23 districts reported Upperman at that
hour was 20 votes behind Doherty. The
subsequent returns were also unfavorable
to the Senator
Steele Holding His Own.
The reports from the Southside were
meager, but Steele was holding his own.
The indications were that Dalzell was ahead
ot his vote of two years ago.

it was as much of a puzzle as the greit Con
gressional somersault to the Democracy in
1874. The country to-ilay is prospcrous.the
crops arc excellent, and no reasons for the
I Republican defeat can be given.

The returns irom Beaver countv were
coming in very slowly at midnight. Beaver

j Estimates based on all returns up to mid-
tnight gave the Kcpublicans a plurality ol
1,200 in the county. Weygant and Mans

smaller pluralities than that lor the lie

HOW HOMESTEAD VOTED.
J The Strikers Canso a -lnmp to tlie Demo- j
i crata Uo Disorder During the Day
I"cw Non-Union 3Ien "Went to the Polls
Mnny Deputies on Duty.
Homestead yesterday vast the largest vote
ever polled in that town on a Presidental
election. The big strike thoroughly
aroused the workingmen. From the time
the polls were opened groups of men col
lected around the voting places and on the
corners discussing the situation. All were
out early and the bulk of the vote had been
cast before 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
The town has hitherto been Bepublican but
the strike caused a sentiment adverse to
this party. Men who had neverbeen known
to vote any other ticket than the Bepubli
can yesterday voted straight for the Demo
crats. 2To one was known to have flopped to the
Bepublicans. The Second ward, that had
always been Democratic, was overwhelm
ingly so. The First and Third wards showed
Democratic gains and many Bepublicans
while voting the ticket were not enthusi
astic. There was no disonler during the
the day. No airests were made
The disposition was to vote the straight
ticket. The new ballot was not well
enough understood to cut the ticket,
through the fear of having the ballot cast
out. David Lynch, a member of the Ad
visory Board, however, led the ticket, and
John A. Shee received liberal support
Few non-union men went to the polls,
and when one made his way
to the polls he was the subject,
of uncomnlimcntarv remarks by the locked-
out men. The town was so thoroughly po
liced by the deputy sheriffs that no violencp
was offered. A significant tact was the
light rote cast at Munhall station. Uut of
a registration of 400 only 160 votes were
cast. Most of the non-union men were
registered there. It is estimated that less
than 50 of these voted.
M. 1' Schooley, editor of the Local Xctn,
said la-t cvenine: "It has been considered
since this strike began tlint the present
trouble would have its influence on the
national election From what I have heard
during the past few weeks I think this will
be so. I know nothing of the returns, but
if there is mnch ot a change in the result,
it can be attributed to the strike."
Early in the evening the Democrats be
eau parading the town and burning red
ire. They displayed the returns, received
by special wire, from their headquarters by
stereopticon views. The street below was
THE SENATORIAL FIGHT.
Democrats Claim Victory in Two Districts
Republican!, Claim the Same.
The fight in the Forty-third Senatorial
district between Upperman, the present in
cumbent, and Jerre Doherty is uncomfort
ably close for all concerned, and early this
morning both claimed victory. Doher
ty's run surprised even his friends.
In Senator Upperman's ward Doherty
carried a majority ot tne votes, in tlie
Third district ot the Fifteenth, Senator
Upperman's ward, Doherty polled 149 votes
and Upperman 81 votes. In the Fourth
district of the same ward the
vote was 104 for Doherty and
82 for Upperman. In the" First
district of the First ward the vote stood
Upperman 29 and Doherty 17G. and in the
Second district of the First ward the vote
stood 120 for Doherty and 27 for Upper
man. In the Fourteenth ward Doherty car
ried a creat majoritv of votes polled.
The Steele-Snee Senatorial fight is also
uncomfortably close. The Bepublican
leaders last night claimed the election of
both Steele and Upperman, but C L. Ma
gee, Senator Flinn, Chairman Gripp and
others admitted alter midnight that they
were at sea on both the Senatorial fights.
Sewicklcy Oat in Force.
In Sewickley an unusually large vote was
polled yesterday, the Baker ballot law
working like a charm. The total vote in
the two precincts was approximately Be
publicans 423, Democrats 125. This is the
largest vote Sewickley has ever given, on
Bradclock Goes Republican.
The total vote in the borough of Brad
dock yesterday was 1,600. The majority
for the Harrison electors was 175, with the
fame Bepublican majorities on the Con
gressional legislative tickets.

Eugcwood borough gave Harrison 83
votes, while Cleveland got but 8.
"WEED MAPS IB 8CH00IS.
It Is Proposed to Introduce Them as Thoy
Are Used In Germany.
The Germans have some educational ideas
which we in this country have borrowed
with profit, and there are still others which
we might he wise to adopt Among them.
uo doul,t are ",e wal1 maps ot different
species of pestiferous weeds, which hang in
schoolrooms where the children can see
them as long as they go to school.
A practical idea underlies the displaying
of these maps. It is well known that farm
ers are prone to treat all weed alike, and
hardly to ob serve any difference between
them; whereas the natures of weeds differ as
much as the natures of any other plants do,
and the sort cf treatment which will exter
minate one will sometimes increase and
It is important, therefore, that the farmer
and gardener should understand the weeds
which they are trying to exterminate.
It s here that these German wall-maps
come in. They show colored pictures of the
most ipestiferous weeds, in all stages of
growtn, and also tne ways in wnicn they
scatter their seeds and propagate them
selves. By learning them thoroughly,
through seeing them day by day on tfie
walls, the child grows np witli a knowledge
of the best way to exterminate them.
It has been proposed that our agricultural
societies offer prizes for the best labeled
collection of weeds not for the purpose of
encouraging their cultivation, but in order
to extend a knowledge of them, and thus
contribute to their extermination.

tSPELIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
New Yokk, Nov. 8. The sub-committee
of the Congress Committee appointed to
investigate "Davenportisui" gathered
material to-day lor a report on fraud and
intimidation. The committee consisted of
Congressman Fitcb, Chairman; Congress
man Geissenbainer, of New Jersey, and
Congressman Harmer, of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Harmer stayed away.
The committee bad its sergeant at arms
on guard down stairs, at the doors of the
court room where the United States Com
missioners were sitting. They were to cap
ture every man discharged and bring him
upstairs to room 135, where the committee
sat. This was not an easy job, for the im
pression prevailed among the men who had
been arrested that they were being arrested
again, and they tried every dodge to escape
from the building. Some of them did
Altogether, 214 cases were heard by the
committee. The routine in every case was
the same aud in each case the marshal had
a chance to tell his story.
"If I only had a kodak," said Mr. Fitch,
"to pirture some of these marshals. They
are the most remarkable looking wretches I
ever saw in mv life. Fine men, indeed, to
clothe with official power! Bepresentatives
of the United States 1 Had I the lore
thought to bring a photographer with me
we would have illustrated our report. Their
pictures would tell the story ot this system
better than words can tell it."
Some of the Evidence Atldnced.
The first arrest of the day that was
brought out to the attention of the court
was that ot Patrick McKenna. McKenna
has been the Tammany captain in the dis
trict in which he lived for 30 years. A
charge of illegal registration, so slender
that Commissioner Shields had thrown the
case out of court at once, had been brought
against him. Mr. McKenna lives at 261
West One Hundred and Twenty-third
street. The marshal was a young fellow.
Mr. McKenna swore that he had owned the
house in which he lives for 12 years.
The young marshal in the course of a
half hour's questioning admitted that he
had known Mr. McKenna a number of
years, and knew that he was a prominent
Democrat in the district He didn't think
McKenna lived at 261 West One Hundred
and Twenty-third street, though he knew
that McKenna owned that house nnd the
one next door. He said he had called at
the house, and had received no response to
the repeated ringing ot the bell, conse
quently he concluded thet nobody lived at
Didn't Know Why He Was Arrested.
John Carrick, who lives at 43 Benwick
street, came in in charge of Deputy Mar
shal John Thompson.
"What is the charge?" asked Mr. Fitch.
"I don't know," said Thompson. "A
man told me to arrest him, and I did it"
"Was the man a supervisor ol election?"
"1 suppose so; he said he was a super
visor, and told mc to arrest the man, and I
Gustavus Bobinson, of 61 East Houston
street, had been arrested by a marshal. This
is his examination: "Alter you had regis

"What did you do?"
"I threatened to take him by the collar
and throw him down the stairs."
"Did you ask him who sent him to yon?"
"I did, and he said he was sent by John
Bobert A. Josephson is a rabbi and lives
at 287 Madison street. He swore to a legal
residence, and said he was arrested to-day
when he came to vote.
"Did you vote?"
"I did, and then I was brought before
Commissioner Shields and discharged."
Made to Deposit His Tote.
Charley Champaign, who had been a law
yer for 19 years, was sworn. He said that
he saw the Marshal attempt to stop the
rabbi's voting. He, with a hrlf a dozen
other men, insisted upon his vote being
taken. The Supervisor objected and the
rabbi, frightened to death, threw down his
ballots and said that he would give up his
attempi to vote rather than have any
trouble. The six men insisted on his voting,
however, aud the ballot was deposited.
"There," said tCongressmaa Fitoh. "is a
typical case. This man would not have
deposited his ballot unless these six citi
zens had insisted on it A clearer case of
intimidation never was seen."
Bicbard Bowery, driver, of 8 Hague
street, bad lived in the same election dis
trict five years, and was known to every
body in the neighborhood. He registered
the first day and had worked every day
since. He was not permitted to vote. He
was advised to go back and vote.
In the case of John S. Williams, the
marshal, Thomas Barbour, an intelligent
looking colored man, swore he arrested
Williams because the supervisor told him
to do so. He had no evidence that Will
iams had not a perfect right to vote.
Altogether, to-day, Davenport had 200
men arrested, of whom ICO w ere discharged
and 50 bailed.
C0U2TSHIP AMONG THE ABAES.
In Many Cases It Is Ioi e at First Sight
but Often Lasts Forever.
Chicago Inter Ocean.
An Arab loves as none but an Arab can
love, but he is also mightily excitable and
easily won. An Arab sees a girl bearing
water or brnshwood, and in a moment, al
most at a glance, is ss madly in love as it he
had passed years of courtship. He thinks
of nothing else, cares and dreams of nothing
else but the girl he loves; and not infre
quently, if he is disappointed in his affect
ions, he pines and dies.
In order to commence his snit he sends
for a member of the girl's tribe who has ac
cess to the h arem, and, first insuring secrecy
by a solemn oath, confesses his love
and entreats his confidant to arrange an in
terview. The confidant goes to the girl, gives her a
flower or blade of grass, and says: "Swear
by Him who made this flower, and us also,
that you will not reveal to any one that
which I am about to unfold to yon."
If the girl will not accept tho pfoposal
she will not take the oath, but, nevertheless,
keens the matter nerfectlv secret lrom alL
If she is favorably disposed to the match
she answers: "I swear by Him who made
the flower you hold and ns," and the place
and time of meeting are settled. These
oathsare never broken, and it is not long
before the ardent lover becomes the happy

10 ZEEF THE MOSQUITO OUT.
Oil of Cloves Is Suggested as Being One of
the Best Remedies.
"It amuses me to hear so many remedies
suggested for the bites of the mosquito, and
so many devices mentioned for keeping the
insects out of the way, even when every
window and door in the house Is protected
by a screen," says a writer in the St Louis
"In frontier districts, where mosquito
bars and screens are alike unknown, various
plans are adopted to keep off insect pests,
and those who live in houses could adopt
any one of them with far greater certainty
of success than tho unfortunate man who
has to sleep in the open without a cover nf
any description. No mosquito will come
within smelling distance of oil of cloves,
and a few drops on tho pillow or coverlet
will keep the sleeper as safe from annoy
ance as a dozen thicknesses of netting. The
precaution is specially desirable in the case
of children, especially as the mosquito is
not by any means the only insect that has a
decided objection to the perfume"
