received with favor by newspaper out
side of the organized ring to defeat lies

lowing plain language In reference to it :
"In all Chicago there wa only one man
who desired to call In the aid of brute
lorce ; that man was the chief mngMrato
of the State. Then; N no odium too deep
or shameful for him. lie has shown him
self to be Ignoble throughout. He ha

A movement has been started In CI ti.it
emala which is exciting the attention of
American statesmen. President Barrio,
and hi; secretary, (jenor Marco A. Koto,
propose a federal union oflbollve Cen
tral American States Guatemala, San
Salvador, Honduras, Cost a Itleaand Nic
aragua, under a political constitution
similar -to the one. now governing the
United Slides. A general treaty is to be
held between tho five States mentioned,
when they arc expected to eouMitutc
themselves a confederation ot Stales,
after the fashion of our ow n confedera
tion. The United States diotilii lend her
powerful aid, and advice, to
this and movements ol a similar nature
among the republican States on our con
tinent. Cuba, wc are led to believe by
current events, will soo'.i bo severed from
an imbecile and corrupt nation. Corn,
blued with Porto Kico, other West India
Islands, and States whose interests are
identical, could bo reared a powerful and
useful republican confederation. When
this is perfected, by an act of unllicatlon
of business and iintinnal Interests between
the new confederation, Mexico and the
United States, the power and strength of
republics on this continent would become
apparent to the monarclis of the old
world, and be a guldlni' star for the peo
ple of nations who now only dream of
liberty in its true and broadest sense.
Returns received by the Albany Argus,

ceived '1,WQ majority. Uuetiun, Tcmo
crat, Is elected terasurer. Only the olll
clal vote can determine the result as to
the other candidates. The Republicans
now have five majority in the Senate and
six In the Assembly. A telegram to the
attorney general, at Washington, an
nounces that United States Attorney
Wells, administration candidate for
Congress, has been elected by
a majority of D,000. The Republicans of
Minnesota claim 10,000 to 12,000 major
ity for all State candidates, except treas
urer, who will probably receive about
G,000. Legislative returns are meagre,
but the Democrats appear to havegaiucd
lour or five members. In Kansas 89 of
the 103 representative districts show the
election of . 13 regular Republican , i,
dependent Republicans 11 Democrats
and 12 elected on the People's and Re
form tickets. The only senatorial va
cancy Is Idled by thu election of a Re
publican, and of the three dlstiict Judges

two. Ot the fouiteen districts yet to

The Hist year he worked In a manufac

saved a little money, lie formed a partner
ship with Jo-epli Goldman, and they
opened a Jewelry stoio at 'SM llrooine
sticet. Up to that lime Jeroslaw had
sent a part of his earnings to Ills family
in Poland, but soon after forming the
partnership with Goldman he liceatne un

was known as Goldman A. Davi, Jiros

not u-iiig his surname as a bie-lue- til if.
Their prolits were large, but Goldman
always took the lion' share, leaving Ids
partner hardly enough to support him
self. Jeroslaw was hoarding in Ifilinaii
Joienhs's house, at 1!) Essex street, and

tickets to bring UN family to
New York. They weru to have started
trom Portland within a few week-, and
th day before his death Jeroslaw made
airangcmetits toturnlsli rooms for them.
Meanwhile Goldman was carrying on
his business with Indifferent success, lie
Is said to have been a morose, revengeful
man. Kleven years ago he abandoned
his wife and child in Poland, and did not
send money or wilto to them thereafter.
When the partnership was di-solved
Goldman was unable to account tor
money that should have fallen to Jero
law's share ot the prolits, and the latter,
by mutual agreement, took inoM of thu
tools. All the jealousy lu Goldman's
vindictive nature was arou'cl by his
former partner's success, lie asked to
be mailu a third in the linn, but Prop
stein bluntly told him that if hu weru to
put half a million dollars Into
the business he would not
accept him. Thus balllcd, Goldman
endeavored to regain poaessiou of at
leat one-half the tools, but Jeroslaw re
fused to give them up, and idler many
stormy interviews Goldman called at the
store of the new linn at ii'J Kast Broad
way, and ollered to eoinproniUu with
Jeroslaw for $:!0. Jeroslaw, beginning
to distrust bis late partner, told him he
would cheerfully give him thu inoiiev If
he had It. Goldman, dissatisfied, then
swore that he would have revenge. "I

consented, and they went to his rooms hi

and went Io thu polls, leaving Goldman

At about half past tlireo o'clock in ihe

An execution, attended by curious cir

Arab, named SI hen All Ould si l'Hablt

Innocence to thu last, nnd refused to have
