the principal cities in the etate show that
the weather is entirely propitious for the
election. Bangor, Lewiston, Augusta,
Bath and all the larger towns report a fine
day.
Bangor, Me., Sept. 13. The election is
progressing quietly. Tiic prohibition vote

is being done on local candidates. No esti
mate has as yet been made on the guberna
torial majority.
Lkwiston, Me., Sept. 13. Indications
are that a light vote will be cast in this
city. The Republican party will undoubt
edly have a majority.
Portland, Mc, Sept. 13. The election
is progressing very quietly, a light vote be
ing cast. Bodwell, Republican, has the
lead by about the usual majority. Reed,
Republican, for congress, is thought to be
rnnning a little ahead of his ticket here.
Augusta, Me., Sept. 13. From the
present outlook the Republicans will carry
Augusta by about 600 majority. At 2
o'clock the returns showed about 475 ma
jority. Prohibition vote very small. In

EASTronr. Me., Sept. 13. The Knights
of Labor nominated their master workman,
who is also a prominent prohibitionist, as

at this hour points to an increased Repub
lican majority over the last election.

for governor. The representative vote is
close, with indications that the Republican
gubernatorial and representative ticket will
have about 230 majority.

tionist 345 and Greenbackers 711, showing
a Republican loss of 1,651. An estimate
of the gains in the First congressional dis
trict indicate that Reed, Republican, will
have from 1,200 to 1,500 plurality.

plurality over Garcelon, Democrat, and 3,-
(100 vninrit- nvcr 'ill Tlincrlfv rim-. nlirirl
of the Republicon ticket and Garcelon far

3,6d'J. ror congress the votes have not
been received. The First district, 1,200
plurality for Reed, indicated others much
larger.
Farmington, 31c., Sept. 13. Franklin
county gives a Republican majority of
about 600 and elects a senator and 'four
representatives in the legislature. Later
returns may possibly give one Democratic
representative.
Damariscotte, Me., Sept. 13. In Lin
coln county, live Republican represents
tives and one Democratic representative are

Dover, Me., Sept. 13. Republicans
elect their entire ticket in this (Piscataquis)
county by a majority of ovor 900. The
Republican senator and representatives are
all electa!.
ArorsTA, Me., Sept. 13. Chairman
Manley has s?nt the following telegram to
the editor of the Tribune: The result of
today's election is a far larger Republican
majority than was anticipated; the largest, j
indeed, given in the state for the past
fifteen years, excepting in presidential
year. We expect seven or eight thousand
plurality. The figures at this hour (11
o'clock) indicate a plurality for Bodwell of J
not less tJian 12,000, and not improbable
14,000. We liave carried every congress
ional district, elected two-third's to three-
fourths of the legislature, thus securing us J
the senate, and county offices probably in
fourteen of the sixteen counties of the state.
The Republican plurality in this city is the
largest ever known, being more than 700
out of a total vote of 1,800 The- total vote
of the state will be above 137,000, which is
extraordinarily large for an off year. Out
of this aggregrate the third party vote will
not exceed 3.500, far less than was ex
pected by the leaders of the movement.
The Republican plurality this year in
towns is reported 9,552 against 13,430 in
1884, being a loss of 4,468. A similar loss
in the towns yet ta be heard from will give
an aggregate of 127,000, divided as follows:
Republicans 6S,500. Democrats 55,200, Pro
hibition 3,300.
The labor ticket had no gubernatorial
candidate nor congressional candidate in the
Fourth district But few figures of the
congressional vote are in. and the labor
vote will probably not be known until the
official figures come in. All four Republi
can congressmen arc elected by handsome
majorities. The legislature will stand
probably twenty eight Republican senators
to three Democrats, against a complete
Republican senate in 1884. The Demo
crats will gain in the house in equal pro
portion, but the Republican will have a
handsome majority.
Virginia Election.
Winchester, Va., Sept. 13. A large
vote is being polled. Indications all point
this afternoon to the election of the "dry"
ticket. Much zeal is manifested on both
sides. Negro holders of "dry" tickets are
active, and their vote for the first time is
much divided. All political distinction is
obliterated, and Democrats and Kepubli
cans vote together on each side of the ques
tion. The election is progressing quietly.
Later The "dry,' carried every ward
in this city, and their ticket by 169 major
ity. The law goes into effect on the first of
next May and continues two years. A va
riety of opinions are expressed a? to the
probable effect on the business interests of
the city.
Dead Lock Broken.
Milwaukee, Wis.. Sept. 13. Tonight
the dead lock of two weeks in the Second
congressional district Democratic conven
tion was broken by the nomination of
Arthur K. De Lanery, of Dodge, on the
216th ballot. The vote stood 15 to 141.
Pitible Palmottocs.
Cuarlston, S. C, Sept. 13. There
not much change in the sit
uation today, but strenuous efforts are be
ing made to patch up the houses in a rude
way to make them water tight, and allow
residences to be occupied and business to
be resumed. Considerable excitement has
been caused by the refusal of brick layers
to work for less than five dollars per day.
The objection apparently is not so much
to the amount asked for as to the work
done, many of thase claiming the advanced
rate being insufficient.
At a special meeting of the city council
today, Mayor Courtney reported that the
amount of relief fund to this time is about
$200,000. He said further that with the
large measure of relief necessary to reach
the many sufferers it was hardly necessary
to say to the aldermen of Charleston how
small this sum would be when divided
among the sufferers.
Gen. M. S. Crawford, U. S. A., of Phil
adelphia, who visits Charleston to see for
himself the condition of affairs, is much
impressed by the character of the loss by
the earthquakes, and holds i. to L ..... be
yond the usual estimates. There are no
new developments in tha strike, but all
brick layers employed are now receiving
3 a day, good, bad or indifferent.
Barge Lost on the Lake.
Chicago, 111., Sept. 13. A special dis
patch published here this morning says it
is rumored that the barge Gracie Barker,
with a large number of passengers on
board, sunk some where south of Grand
Haven, Mich.
In marine circles here a good deal of in
terest is taten m the reported loss of the
Barker, but all efforts to obtain positive in
formation have proved fruitless. A dis
patch from Budgemon Point, about
eighteen miles south of St. Joseph, Michi
gan, states that a bottle has been picked
up on the shore there containing these
words: "Gracie Barker sinking off shore.
All hands I fear will be lost."
Later. Another dispatch has been re
ceived stating that another bottle contain
ing a similar message has just been found
in the same place.
The Gracie Barker was originally intend
ed for a Pleasure yacht. She was built at
at Grand Haven in 1879, and was owned by
Captain Yanderhoff of Chulevoix, Michi
gan. She has been running between South
Haven and Muskegan with passengers.
She could carry 230 people, From" the
best information she had one hundred per
sons on board.
The Barker has not arrived at Muskegan
at 2 o'clock this afternoon, so says a special
to the Chicago Evening Journal' and par
tially confirms the fears that she is lost.
Seven to One for Impeachment.
Philadelphia. Pa., Sept. 13. The
committee of the common council, charged
with investigating the allegations of mal
feasance in oilice of Mayor Smith, reported
to that body this afternoon recommending
that he be impeached. The report was
signed or seven members of the committee,
One member dissented and presented a mi
nonty report. The grounds on which the
recommendation for impeachment are
based are the receipt of money for licences
and neglecting to pay the same into the
city treasury, failing to enforce the ordi
nance in regard to "pawn brokers, permit
ting his private secretary, Jolin L. Linton,
to receive and retain public moneys, etc.
Private Secretary Linton has tendered his
resignation.
Good Pair to draw From.
St. Locis, Sept. 13. Two embezzle
ments were brought to light in this city to
day. T. J. Chotard, a young man of good
family and greatly res'pected heretofore,
was arrested this morning in a house of ill
fame by a detective in the emnlov of C.
P. Burrand fc Co., commission merchants,
110 North Main street, by whom Chotard
was employed as confidential clerk. An
examination of his books showed he was
short $2,000.
Ernest Voss, clerk of the druggist,
Mueller, at No. 800, Pine street, has" also
been found to be an embezzler, having dis
appeared with $1,500 of his employer's
money. He has a wife and family in "Ger
many. Shocks in Ohio.
Chicago, Sept. 13. A special from Ak
ron. Ulno, says the people living in the J
coal mining regions, embracing four towns
and quite a large range of countrr, were
awakened at 4 o'clock Sunday morning by i
long rumbling sounds, accompanied bv
shocks of earthquake so distinct that
houses were terribly shaken and articles on
shelves were thrown to the floor. Several
years ago the earth settled several feet with
out apparent cause in this region, and the
frightend people fled, fearing thev would
be swallowed up.

to section 10 of the oleomargarine act, mak
ing provision ior the collection of an inter
nal revenue tax of 15 cents per pound on
all imported oleomargarine in addition to
the regular import duty, and also providing
that this additional tax must be paid before
the removal of the goods from the custody
of the government.
LITTLE PHIL'S OPINION.
Gen. Phil Sheridan inja few days will go
to Leavenworth, Kan., to attend the annual
shooting competition between teams of the
regular army. A reporter of the Post asked
him about the fate of Geronimo. I do not
yet know, he said, whether any conditions
are attached to his surrender. There is no
doubt about what ought to be done with
him. He is entitled to no mercy or consid
eration. If he cannot be dealt with sum
marily he will probably be removed cast of
the Mississippi, to Florida perhaps, the
very place where he doesn't want to go.
The Dry Tortugas would be a good reser
vation for him.
Two Hearts One Thought.
New York, Sept. 13 James G. Blaiue,
Jr., youngest son of Ex-Senator James G.
Blaine, was married in the Rectory of St.
Leo's Roman Catholic church in this city
last Monday afternoon to Miss Mana Ncvins,
daughter of Col. Richard Nevins of Colum
bus, Ohio. The ceremony was performed
by Father Thomas J. Duckrev, pastor of
the church, the contracting parties having
satisneu nun that there was no impediment
to the union. There was no one else pre
sent. Miss Nevins' is one of the oldest and
most distinguished families of Ohio. Her
maternal grandfather was Hon. Samuel
Medary, long editor of the Ohio Statesman,
territorial governor of Minnesota before its
admission as a state, and territorial gov
ernor of Kansas under Buchanan. Young
Blaine is the favorite son of his distinguish
ed father. He is about twenty years old
and has not yet completed his collega
course. 3Iiss Nevins is a young lady of
nineteen with fair hair, handsome presence,
and an exceptionaly beautiful face. She
was educated at the convent of the Sacred
Heart in Cincinnati. She is said by her
friends to be a young lady of many' bril

Vicious Sluggers.
Chicago, Sept. 13. Thesix-rounJglo.e
contest between Paddy Rvan and Frank
Glover, the champion hravv weigh; of
Illinois-, took place at Chaltenham beach
tonight. It resulted in a regular 'lugging
match and was stopped by the town of
Lake police at the end of the second ronnd.
One of the rcfrees decided that Ryan had
the bct of the fight, the other declared it
a draw. The fight took place on a loat
upon which a twenty-four foot ring was
made. It rained from the Mart 10 the
finish. The fight was a vicious one on the
patt of both men, it being necessary for the
referees to rush between them with urn
berellas and clubs and haul the men apart.
The fight was stopped at 10-30 p. m., and
the drenched and disgusted 1,500 spectators
made a rush for the train.

London, Sept. 13. The sculling match
between George W. Lee, of New Jersey,
and Neil Mattcrson, the Australian oafs

It is remarked that although the Emperor
Francis Joseph is at Prezmvse in Galisha

not more than 250 millimetres apart, neither
has given any sign of a desire or intention
of meeting the other. In fact, neither has
sent the other greetings even by deputy.

towards Austria. It says it is note
worth' that Russia military maneuvrcs
taking place at the precise corner of the
Russian domains, which would be the
principal theatre of war in event of a Rus
sian conflict with Austria. The emperor,
Francis Joseph, was at the same time re
viewing an equal number of Austrian
troops, the total being over 00,000 men, at
the point which would be naturally chosen
as the Austrian base of operations in the
same event. Thus we see, says the Neue
Freie Press, two rural camps and two rival
courts almost within sight of each other.
James Round, Conservative, member of
parliament for Harwich, has given notice
of his intention to call the attention of the
government in the house of commons to 1
the seizure by French authoritics,at Havre,
of English fishing vessels.
Sir J. Ferguson, under foreign secretary,
stated ia the house of commons this even
ing that the government had sent orders to
Lord Lyons, the British ambassador at
Paris, to use all possible efforts to obtain
the release of the British fishing boats de
tained at Havre.
Lord Randolph Churchill announced in
the house of commons this afternoeu the
appointment of a royal commission of in
quiry into the necessity of civil service re
form in the British government.
The Scottish Protestant alliance will meet
to consider Lord Randolph Churchill's re
ply to its protest against tht appointment
of Mr. Henry Matthews to tin. horn secre
taryship, which was brought on the ground
that he was a Roman Catholic. The Rev.
James Paton, director of the alliance, has
addressed a letter to Lord Randolph Chur
chill, in which he .says: You have penned
an insolent reply to a respectful public doc
ument. Although vou are now a cabinet
minister we observe with astonishment and
regret that you have not laid aside those
weapons of abuse with which you toma
hawked your way to power. . It's a national
calamity when men, pitch-forked into high
positions, are destitute of decent manners
Mr. Paton concludes his letter by saIi'g
that the alliance founded its protest on the
same grounds as those upon which the ex
clusion of Roman Catholics from the
throne is founded.
The lord mayor of London has received I
a letter from Phelphs. the United States
minister, forwarding a cable message from
Secretary Bayard expressing President
Cleveland's grateful acknowledgement for
the generous action of the lorn mayor and
city of Loudon in behalf of the Charleston
sulfcreis. M. N. Rothchild and Son hare
contributed 500 pounds and Baring Bros.,
the same amount to the relief fund. It is
probable that a large sum will be realized.

reduction.
Mr. Gladstone has privately announced
that he will return to London Saturday and
thai he hopes to take part in the debate on
Monday. It is understood he will support

union of Bulgaria and Eastern
on the condition that no acts of violence be
1 committed. Russia advises that public
opinion in Bulgaria be allowed to calm
down before the new prince is elect
ed to the throne. The Russian agent has
not yet communicated with the czar in re
ply to the Bulgarian government, because
the relations between the present Bulgarian
ministers and him is very strained. Dur
the sitting of the national assembly today,
ereral deputies proposed that the Bulga
rian government send a telegram to the
czar requesting him to communicate with
the Bulgarian government, instead of
through his agent
The German banking house declined the
proposal from the Bulgarian government
for raising a loan for that country.

A Terrible Squeeze.
Sciunton, Pa., Sept. 13. The Marine
shaft colliery of the Delaware and Hudson
Canal company wsts the scene of an exten
sive cave-in this morning, by which it is
feared a number of men have lost their
lives; how mauy It is impossible to say and
.the suppositions varying from six to nine.
There fccenis to bo but little question of the
death of one of them, an elderly man named
John Schafcr. A number of men wore cut
and bruised by the falling of rock and coal
in making their escape up the slope. For
several weeks a .squeeze has been gohi on
in the chambers on the lcfthand sideo? the
mine: the righthand side being safe as sup
posed. This morning about sixty men went to
work in tktfright hand chamber. After
they had lieen at work some time it was no
ticed that the squeeze was extending in the
direction of where the men wore at work
and they were at once notified of their dan
ger, and all started for the foot of the
mine. Two falls occurred and it is not
known whether the missing men were
caught by the falls or had returned to the
back part of the mine. If they returned
there is hope of rescuing them alive; but
if thev continued toward the foot of the
shaft they were undoubtly killed. The
cave in covers live or six aces.
So far as known the names of the min
ing men in addition to Schafcr are as fol
lows: John C. Gardner, 30 years old, married.
John Young, miner, 55 years, married
and three children.
Pat McNulty, miner, married, mjvcji
