They Meet and the Agreement Signed
by the Various Companies In
terested. Nkw Yo::k, Nov. 3. The Time Table
will print tomorrow the confidential agree
ment between the lines of the Southwest
ern association, which was to take effect
November 1. It accompanies the publica
tion with the following comments: '"The
agreement signed by the lines composing
the Southwestern Passenger association
October 28th, to take efTectrXovember 1st,
is a Gist iron document, which, it is sup
posed, will keep agreed lines from rate
cutting and from ull of the numerous sharp
practices which have been indulged in and
are being followed under other pooling
agreements." The fraction between lines
in the Southwestern association has always
been great as the territory covered by them
is the most active and prrgressive
part of the country. Agreements without
number have been signed, and in each
case, proven by some one of the many
bright men connected with these lines. It
has been a by-word among railway men,
that pools were all right, but there were
ways and means for getting business; like
the" Spartan vouth, they were expected to
1 be sharp enough to prevent detection when
cuuty of any infraction of pool mte3, but
they were expected to get the business.
The new agreement which we have printed
elsewhere is expected to prevent the sharp
est cutter from breaking the rates without
Great secrecy has been adherred to in the
issuing and publishment of the agreement,
the various officials being strictly enjoined
from talking about ir. Provision was laid
on the injunction: Thou shalt not allow
any newspaper man to see it; neither shall
he know what it contains. The Time
Table prints it verbatim and holds it up as
a model of workmanship and an example
of what- other pool agreements should be
Under this agreement peace is almost
sure to prevail in the southwest. The
agreement is as follows:
"For the purpose of preventing sudden
and extreme fluctuations, alike injurious to
the public aud transportation companies, it
is hereby agreed by the following lines,

Blaine in New York.
New York, Nov. 3. The Herald pub
lished this morning two columns of gossip
in regard to the visit of James G. Blaine
in this city.
It says: "Not the least incident that
came under the Herald reporter's eye dur
ing the dny w;ts the airly presence in the
corridors of the Fifth avenue hotel
Juo. Reid, managing editor of the Times,
and the late arrival there yesterday after
noon of Geo. Jones, proprietor of the same
paper. A story is afloat that overtures
have been made for a reconciliation be
tween the Times people and Mr. Blaine. It
is posiuvely asserted from headquarters
that Blaine has been asked to reconsider
whether he would meet Jones. He assayed
to be favorable to the suggestion but has
held back on account of influential friends
in the newspaper business. Jones sat on n
sofa with Levi P. Morton, when
the Herald man discovered him
ami they were talking about Blaine,
whose name was heard from their lips sev
eral times. Morton is friendly to both
Blaine and Jones and is named as the inter
mediarywho is bringing them together
John Reid lm been anxious to have the
political polwy of the Tunes changed, ami
is believed to" have been instrumental in
getting Mr. Jones to consider'the'subjectof
reconciliation. Morton said, we have an
other peace-making mission, which is to be
effected if possible, during Mr. Blaine's
stav here. It is to bring limine and Couk-
i ling together, and also Blaine and Arthtir.
The Maine statesman has not yet indicated
whether he was in a panfic mood or not.
but before his departure it will be impossi
ble to judge by what he does iu reference
to meeting those old antagonists. A sttm
marv of the whole matter of Blaine's visit
to New York may be briefly related:
He regards New York state as being
pivotal iu 13, he regards New York city as
the battle ground of the state. Here, there
fore, the" next president will be matlc"i3r
unmade. He sees in George's movement a
chance to make a Republican president and
he fs moving accordingly. Blaine's move
ments yesterday were interesting. He
took breakfast with Senator Eugene Hale
and General Anson G. MrCook; then he
had a long conference with S. B. Elkin.
at which it was arranged that he should
drive with the latter. Satunlay nxt he io
to meet Chaunrey M. DePew, Whitelaw
Reid, Levi I. Morton. Senator Evarta. S.
L. Woodford and a number of other lead
ing lytiw Yorkers. In the afternoon lie
went out for a drive and on hia return was
again met by Elkin5, CnarU-y Emery Smith
ami other friends. The fart that he fs to
diue witli Elkins Satunlay, indicates hi in
tention of remaining here, Had private bus
iness will not serve as an excuse for lm
prolonged stay in New York. Blaine is in
excellent health and spirits. He weigh
nearly 200 pounds, eats likeaworkiagman,
has 11 great dent of aiirplu energy uid sur

Cixci:""ATr. Nov. 5. Speaker Carlislo
is probably elected, but by a narrow mar
gin. He claims a majority of from four to
srs hundred. The official" count begins to
day in the eight counties composing the
district and must be completed. Cnfortu
natelv. the final results in the counties
whose votes will decide the matter, are
almost inaccessible. Two of them have
neither railroads or telegraph, but it is
probable that enough information may be
obtained during the night to furnish ma
terial for a decisive statement of the vote.
The opinion here is universal that the
cause of the surprisingly close contest lavs
in the fact that nearly all democrats in tho
back enc ities were unaware of any f ncal
opposition to Carlisle, and thousands of
democrats stayed at home.
Cincinnati The ofSciid count of the Cth
Keatucsv district was ttwde txlay.
Speaker "John G. Carlisle eketed bv a
majority of 7?6. Mr Carlisle vasivted.
tonight" bv a representative of the Assudal
ed press! who asked him whaJ. in ha
opinion, was the cause of the comparatively
small majority received by him at the re
cent electionhe said: If the vote agaml
me last Tuesday had been larger thin the
vote against me heretofore, some Mgnili
cauce might be attached to it. Such, how
ever, is not the fact. Two years ago my
opponent received 9.325 votes, or ot ariy if
not quite twice as many as were st
against me Tuesday, anil yet two years
ago mv majority wrs " nearly U.00O
If it " had been generally aip
posed that the opposition to ma
reallv amounted to any thing. I think my
mojority at this election would have been
near G.000. Being asked if h views on
the tariff affected the vote to any extent,
Mr. Crrlisle replied: "The tariff question
had no more influence upon the vote thi
time than it has had at previous ck lions.
There is nothing in the results to discour
age the advocates of revision and reduction
Many causes are contributed to the defeat
of our candidates in the different localities,
some of thess causes were local and some
general. It is early to attempt to cannier
ate them, but I think it is safe to ?ay that
the local causes have contributed far more
to produce the result than general on
At any rate there is no jut cauc for alarm
or despoudency. Tho Democratic party
has survived many defeats which wo'ild
have been fatal to any other political or
gaaization, and this little rebuke will unly
stimulate it to greater exert iun in the
future. We need not surrender any prm
ciplc or abandon any policy heretofore an
nounced. but we must prepare to inert nur
opponents openly and manfully on any
issue that divides the two parties.
