The Crowds About th Etretti-How the Hswi
v Affected Thtm.' -
"When daylight camo yesterday mrralng
many people were still on the. streets after a
nlrjbt of excitement. In a few hours the thor
oughfares were again alive with peple, all of
whom were seeking for the latest ne vs. The
Democrats felt very good over the di pitches
of the night before and would nit liste i to any
one who suggested a doubt. Early la the after--noon
a crowd collected about the telegrAph
offices, and a few dispatches wera received,
which encouraged the Republic ins to talk.
Men who bad been so sure of a Democratic
victory In the morning began to doubt. The
Interest and the anxiety was verr great..
"What is the' .news now i" waa the common
2ue6tkra, and no one could say ''exactly -what
lie news was. '.
At nightfall 'the streets swarmed with peo
ple, JLotnieerowd stayed about the telegraph
offices. Men. who had gone to bed the. night
before fully convinced that Tllden had been
elected by an overwhelming majority, read the
dispatch'es'posted in the windows with wonder
ing eyes. A silent crowd gathered In front of
SEX. JACK. BEADqClXTEBS,
on Louisiana avenue, and watched the sheet
In front of the building-, but no dispatches were
showing. A gang of young roughs took pos
session of the rooms,'and the air rang with
cunes and an occasional -"Hooray for Tllden!"
Two or three fights were begun, but nothing
There was a large.crowd during the evening
in front of the TUdetrssd Hendricks Reform
Club rooms, on Seventh' atreet, and dispatches
were read from the. balcony. The crow,d was
anxious, and dispatches were listened to
eagerly.. Yerylittle. came over the wires to
make them enthusiastic. Whenever any of
l,the crowd beard of the tenor of the dispatches
received at Republican headquarters tney
pooh-poohed, and said that the dispatches
must be Republican fabrications. Several
.speeches inere delivered, and a great effort
was maae to excite eninmuasm, qui lauea.
About ten o'clock It was announced that a
dispatch, had been received from New York
saying that no'more news would be sent that
night. The meeting was then adjourned and
the crowd dispersed.
The most enthusiastic gathering of the.
evening was that in and about the rooms of
the Republican Congressional committee, ou
F street. The tidings that good news was
coming in was carried all over town early In
the evening, and Republicans rallied here to
fee what truth there was in the cheering re--portt.
Dispatch after dispatch, giving the results
in Slates before considered doubtlul, were
i received and read with cheers. Bangs were
sung, speeches were made, and the Infection
was carried out on the street and Into the
Democratic crowds, where occasionally some
one would hurrah for Hayes.
The offices of the Cincinnati Gazette and
the New York World were open and filled
Preparations had been made during the day
lor a Democratic procession last night, but
the torches were not distributed.
At night the excitement ran higher, and
there seemed to be danger of some serious
disturbance. A large force of police was dis
tributed about the central part of the city, so
as to be In reach of the several places where
the crowds gathered. Such vigilance was ex
ercised that nothing more serious than a few
street fights occurred.
A large crowd, composed mainly of Demo
crats, were assembled during the evening
about the headquarters of the Tllden and
Hendricks Reform Club, on Seventh street, to
hear dispatches read. About 9 o'clock a party
of eclored men and boys, who had been parad
ing the streets, came.' up 8eventh street, and
when they reached the Democratic crowd a
collision occurred, which would have resulted
seriously If It had not been for- the pronipf'
action or the ponce, two or three shots
were fired in the crowd, and the colored men
were put to flight. Lieut. Kelly, with some
of his command, put himself between the
crowds, and kept the whites back while the
blacks hurried away down Seventh street.
A number of small fights, which were
quickly quelled, sprung up In the vicinity of
the telegraph offices at the corner of Four
teenth street and the Avenue.
' About midnight last night Officer Long
street arrested James Coffey, white, upon
complaint of Shedrick Foekey, colored, who
charges Coffey with threatening to shoot him.
According to Foskey's statement It appears
that he had gone into Hogan's restaurant, on
E street, between Eleventh and Twelfth, to
Induce a friend of his to go home, whn Coney
leveled a revolver; at him and with an oath,
told Foskey to go out or.he would shoot him.
He then went quietly out and summoned an
officer, who arrested the offender and took
him to the Fifth precinct station.
