Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Nov. 8. —President Polk,
of the National Farmers' Alliance, is
very jubilant over the result of the elec
tions. In an interview today ho said:
"The Democrats and Republicans are
claiming everything just now, but when
they come to sift the chaff from the
wheat, they will find that the Farmers'
Alliance had something to do with
electing a fair proportion of good men
who will have seats in the next con
gress. Up to the present time, it is a
certainty that congress will contain
thirty-eight straight-cut alliance men,
and there are twelve or fifteen more who
are pledged to us. These men are from
the south and northwest, the two sec
tions in which most of our work was
done. The alliance in Nebraska, Min
nesota and lowa is not our organization,
and is not amalgamated with us, but it
made the same fight, and will join us
this winter. Our alliance will co-operate
with any farmers' association, and in a
little while have a grip on the situation
in almost every corner of the land. We
are here to stay. This great reform
movement will not cease until
it has impressed itself indelibly
in the nation's history. Financial re
form is the necessity of the hour, and it
must come. The press and the voice of
the stump speaker were our only assist
ants. The Alliance has no campaigu
fund, no boodle. If we had had money
we would not have used it.
The principles on which the Alli
ance is founded are solid and correct.
We must succeed. The fight was no
small affair. The extremists of both
parties attacked us bitterly, and gave
no mcli of ground. In the south it was
the Democrats who opposed us. In the
north our most vigorous antagonists
were the Republicans."
ASSAILED THBi PROCESSION.
A Democratic Jubilee the Occasion of a
Marion, Ind., Nov. 8. —A Democratic
celebration here today was made the
occasion for a bloody riot. When
the procession was moving along the
principal street a negro of huge propor
tiojff ran into the procession, brandish
ing a club and revolver, and commenced
firing and knocking right and left. Al
Powell, a white teamster, who was
walking in the procession, was
shot and instantly killed. William
Campbell was shot In the arm, Bill Cam
waß shot in the leg, Jim Berry received
a bullet in the face, and Jerry Frasier
(colored) received a ball in the leg. The
colored man who started the riot, and
whose name cannot be ascertained, was
shot twice in the back after he had killed
Powell, and was placed under arrest. He
was taken away with the mob howling at
his heels, and reports from Fairmont
are to the effect that there is a prospect
of lynching. Sheriff McFreely has gone
to the scene, and will endeavor to pro
tect the prisoner. Cooler heads at Fair
mont are also using all their influence
to prevent violence. The darkey who
did the shooting came to Fairmont a
few days ago from Anderson.

fied with the results in my own district.
I gained 3000 votes during the cam

The Republican victory on the state

the gerrymander was manifested most
clearly by the election. The Republi

jority of over 12,000, while the Demo
crats secured two-thirds of the
congressmen. Protection is strong
er today than it ever was,

1892, and then it will be better under

Major McKinley feels confident that
the senate will pass the Lodge federal
election bill before the close of the next

The Raise Made on Account of the Duty
on Tin Plate—Chicago Packing Houses
to be Removed.
Chicago, Nov. B.—The Chicago pack
ers of canned meats at a meeting today
decided to advance the prices a quarter
of a cent a pound, because of the in
creased cost of tin under the new tariff.
They also considered a plan oi moving
the stock yards and various pack
ing house plants to a point
south of the city and nearer
the lake. After the meeting Armour
said the yards would be removed. It
was shown to be feasible to establish, at
a profit, new and greatly improved
yards and packing houses, with better
facilities for handling stock, and at less
cost. Tho present yards will be used for
BLEW OUT HIS BRAINS
To Avoid MaTry ing the Woman He Had
Chicago, Nov. B.—A strange story was
told today at an inquest on Edward C.
Hunt, a young pharmacist who last
night blew his brains out in a saloon.
The story is that he was to have been
married today to Miss Monte Delia Mc-
Croskey, said to be the daughter of a
cattle king in the new state of Washing
ton. According to the story told by one
of Hunt's intimate friends, he left his
home in Garnett, Kansas, a year ago for
a trip in the west for his health.
On the road he met Miss
McCroskey, and their friendship soon
resulted in an engagement. Although
no ceremony was performed, they lived
together in Tacoma aB man and wife.
Hunt soon departed for the east, and
Miss McCroskey discovered after a while
that she was about to become a mother.
Wishing to avoid scandal she came for a
visit to friends in lowa, and remained
there until her child was born. It did
not live long and the young woman then '
determined to hunt her recreant lover
up. Coming to Chicago she met him
and demanded that he marry her. He
agreed, and the wedding was fixed for
today. Nothing more was heard of
Hunt from last Monday until last night,
when he walked into a saloon, accom
panied by three lewd women. He
bought them drinks and telling the bar
tender that he had no money, offered
his overcoat in settlement, saying he
would not need it again. The bartender
refused to accept it, and without a
word, young Hunt whipped out are
volver and sent a bullet through his
head. He has wealthy relatives in Gar
THE ALASKA CENSUS.
Some Extensive Traveling Done by the
Washington, Nov. B.—A bulletin from
the census office upon the census of
Alaska, is composed of an introductory
statement from Superintendent Porter,
and a letter from Special Agent Peti off,
describing his experience in organizing
a force of enumerators, and in collect
ing statistics. He began his work Feb
ruary 10th, last, divided the territory
into eight divisions, organized a force of
assistant special agents for field work,
from residents familiar with the language
and country. The enumeration is nearly
completed, but returns have been re
ceived only in part, and some cannot be
had until next spring. Mr. Petroff's jour
ney in Alaska foots up about 12,000 miles,
and the distances there traveled by his
assistants probably foot up more. The
superficial area of the territory is esti
mated at 570,000 square miles.
Balfour and the Irish.
Dublin, Nov. B.—Balfour had a long
interview with the Catholic bishop at
Letterkenny yesterday, and received
deputations of prominent citizens, ask
ing for railway extensions. Balfour de
clared that the present government's
period of office would be looked upon as
the era of efficient public works in the
poor districts of Ireland. At Armagh
he received an address from the inhab
itants. Here a number of Nationalists
cheered for Gladstone and O'Brien, and
were attacked by Unionists present. A
scrimmage ensued, the Unionists, who
were the more numerous, finally sap
pressing the Nationalists.

Berlin, Nov. 8. —[Coprighted by the
New York Associated Press.] Chancel
lor Yon Caprivi, who has been visiting
Milan this morning, received a deputa
tion of German residents of the city,
who presented an address. In replying,
the chancellor spoke in terms of unoffi
cial frankness of the object and results
of his meeting with the Italian prime
minister. He congratulated his visitors
upon living in the beautiful country,
which was the center of art interest, and
which was under a government that
was linked with that of Germany by
a policy of peace. His interviews with
Signor Crispi, he said, cemented and
perfected the entente of the dreibund.
He had no anxiety as to the immediate
future, and was confident that peace
would be maintained for a long time to
come. The chancellor did not go to the
length of disclosing the issue of the dis
cussion of Signor Crippi's demand that
the Emperor of Austria return King
Humbert's visit by going to Rome.
Relations Farther Strained.
The relations between the Italian
court and the government of Austria
have been further strained by advices
from the Italian ambassador at Vienna,
that Cardinal Galimberti, papal nuncio,
is operating with Emperor Fran
cis Joseph, through the empress
and archdukes, to break Aus
tria's connection with Italy.
The Riforma of Rome contrived to get
hold of the dispatches from Cardinal
Galimbarti to the pope, reporting pro
gress in the diplomacy tending to iso
late the Italian government. The au
thenticity of the dispatches has not
been denied. Prime Minister Crispi has
been for a long time urging the emperor
of Austria to return King Humbert's
visit. He now insists upon Austrian
recognition of Rome as the capital of
Italy, by the emperor to the Quirinal.

A PHENOMENAL CATCH.
Special to the Herald.]
Redondo, November 9th. —The citizens of this place
were thrown into a state of great excitement this afternoon
by the strangest catch ever known in these waters. The
angler, a well-known resident, was armed with a bamboo
rod of only ordinary size. He had waited in vain for a bite
for nearly half an hour when he felt, at the end of his line,
a fish evidently endowed with enormous strength. The
battle which ensued has probably never been paralleled in
piscatorial annals. It attracted two-thirds of the popula
tion of the village, so rapidly was the exciting news circu
lated. The beholders could scarcely believe their eyes
when, as the finny monster was drawn out of the water, its
side was found to be adorned with the business card of the
LONDON CLOTHING CO., whose bargains are now
attracting almost as much attention as the fish itself will
receive from anglers all over the country.

it is towsTand clean.
Yon Caprivi started with authority to
serve Signor Crispi and King Humbert,
by the promise that the Emperor of
Austria would go to Rome in the spring.
Communications from Count Kalnoky,
the Austro-Hungarian prime minister,
received before the chancellor left, it is
understood, announced that Emperor
Francis Joseph would submit, in the
event of Signor Crispi maintaining that
his reception in Rome is necessary for
the continuance of the triple alliance.
Caprivi's remarks indicate that the
affair has been settled in accordance
with Signor Crispi's demands.
The reports that the chancellor
mooted combined reprisals against the
United States, because of Oe McKinley
bill, are unfounded. Austrian papers
are hankering after retaliation, although
negotiations here for a commercial coa
lition resulted in utter failure. Italy is
least affected by the bill, of any Eu
ropean state. She would not risk of
fending America to satisfy a doubtful
The chancellor will return in time to

Keforins That Will Be Opposed.
Several reforms that are certain to be
promised in the speech from the throne
will be seriously opposed. A reduction
in the tariff on wheat and rye, and re
form in the communal laws aiming at
the abolition of the old feudal rights,
will be fiercely contested by the old con
servatives. The belief in ministerial
circles is that the emperor is determined
to make no concessions. If the lower
house refuses to accept the projected re
forms, the government will be dissolved
without delay. The Heligoland bill for
the landtag does not conceal that the
island is to be used for war purposes.
Dr. Stoecker's Dismissal.
Dr. Stoecker has not been daunted by
his dismissal from the court chaplaincy.
He is preparing for a wider and more
intense anti-Semitic campaign. He re
tains his seat in the reichtag, and seems
decided for fiercer agitation in favor of
political reaction. The emperor's selec
tion of Dr. Day sander. as chief chaplain,ad
interim, is due to an acquaintance formed
while his majesty was a student at
Bonn where Dr. Daysander was a pastor.
The French papers were accurate in
the prediction of tbe speedy Germaniz
ing of Luxemberg. The Frankfort Zei
tung states that the French language
will be replaced by the German, and
other measures will be taken to assimi
late the people with those of Germany.
Archduke John Not Lost.
Officers of merchant ships familiar
with the Cape Horn routes, discredit
the report of the loss of Captain John
Orth, Archduke John of Austria. The
Santa Margherita, the vessel which he
commands, is a good ship and is well
manned. She might be safe though
she should not be heard of for a month
longer. The Berlin actress, Milly Stu
bel, who is the morganatic wife of the
, archduke, joined him just before hia
i vessel sailed from Buenos Ayres.
