The Democrat have already Riven tip

or tho best Informed Democratic leader
ndmlt that he will be defeated by from 200
to son. but the Itcptibllcnns claim that ho
wilt be defeated b not less than Sijo.
When Ilnikcr ran ngalnst Colonel An
thony six ears ngo, ho only defeated that
Bentlem.tn by 621 voles, when tho whole
Itepubllcan party was broken to pieces,
and romo ot the most prominent loaders
of that party to-daj were fighting An
thony. Again, four years ago, when ho
ran against rortoseup and bad tho whole
of ttlue ,Mty administration, tho tollco
boird and tho county olllccs In his fax or,
he won by 227: at that time he received the
miners' vote and the 1. idles' ote. Thin its
nro very much- changed this spring. The
position that Hacker took In the last two
miners' strikes In this city was so ob
jectionable to the miners that this time
tho whole vote, which will amount to 1,2U0,
will bo cast ngalnst him.
An attempt has been mule on behalf of
Uneker to secure him tne ladles' vote, but
It did not succeed, and most of tho wom
en will ote for Hook. The Itepubllcan or
(mnlzatlon Is working llko a perfect ma
chine, uml In perfect harmony. The Dem
ocrats, as usual, have been claiming that
there was a dissatisfaction among the lte
publlc.ins, but their statements hao no
truth In them whatever. It will be found
on election day that tho Republicans will
ro to the polls and will vote for prosper
ity and better wages for the working
class. The only man whom the Democrats
consider has any show whatever Is John
O'Keefo, who Is a candidate for city at
torney. They commenced several days
ngo to trade off Hacker for O'Keefe, and
no doubt between now and election day a
great deal will bo done in that line. It Is
considered, however, by those who arc
well posted, that while a great amount ot
tr.ullng mav bo done on this line,
O'Keefo cannot be elected.
Dill, for city clerk, and Fenn, for treas
urer, arc Just as sure of election as Hook,
for major, and the friends ot llauterman.
having taken his mittcrs In hand, will
bring out their man with a good round ma
jority. The only surprising thing In this cam
paign Is the fact that so much Demo
cratic money Is being used. Koine parties
are sufficiently Interested to put largo
sums of money, with the hope of electing
the Democratic ticket. There Is a purpose
behind this which is not easy to under
stand. The Democrats are already be
ginning to threaten what they are going
to do on election day; they claim that a.
great many of the Kepubllcnns are not ot
ngo, and are trying to scare them awav
from the polls. Proper precautions will
be taken so that c ery man and woman
will be allowed to vote and no bulldozing
or anything that the Democrats can do
will prevent the votes on election day
ifrom being recorded. It Is expected It It
Is a fine dav, there will be a ery largo
vote cist; at least 7,500 It Is thought will
go to tno pons ana a very large major

With reference to the constables, tbero
Is not much light being made on them. It
Is safe to say that the whole Itepubllcan
ticket will bo elected, without exception.

A Dog With a 1'ravlng for Milk and Ills
Manner of NitlsfJ big It
A strange tale comes from Dorchester,
which. If true, discounts anything xxhlcli
tho feeble Imagination of Munchausen was
able to originate about any of the numer
ous and gifted nulmils with which lie
Lame in contact. The story is vouched for
by a patrolman and a inllkmnn, and It Is
about a big Newfoundland dog belonging
to .Mr. Ken tied j', of Ai mainline street, Dor
chester. Just what the dog does through
the night is not stated, but It Is certain
that In the eaily morning hours he Is nf
Micted xxlth a lenlblo thirst, and that the
only xxay in which ho can satisfy It Is by
cliinking large quantities- of milk. 1 or
weeks past the residents, especially In the
vicinity ot Morton street, have round their
supply of morning milk missing. Com
plaints nt Polite station 11 have been num
erous, and patrolmen have been spending
their time In the earlj morning hours hunt
ing for the thief, but until this morning
thej- were unable to catch hlm For a
long time ceitaln milk dealers have been
suspected of committing the larcenies, and
for that leasou the trade of some has
fallen oit peiccpttblj-. Farly this morning
a patiolmin and a milkman were on the
lookout for tho thief, and were watching
a can of milk xxhlcli had been placed on
the steps of one of the houses b- the mllk
m in Pretty soon they saw the dog com
ing doxxn the stieet, but paid no attention
to hlm until he went up to the can which
they vxeie watching, and. taking It In bis
teeth, made oit with it. Tills struck them
ns lathei unusual, but It was nothing to
what lollovvcd They "shadowed" the dog
and saw- him go up onto the piazza of his
master's house on Aimnndlne stieet. lie
sit down on his haunches, and with a
"here's-looMng-at-j-ou air," tool; the stop
ple out of the can and then "poured the
milk down Ills tliro.it," as the txxo wit
nesses asspit. This neaiiy reduced tlKni
to a comatose state, but theie was moie
to come, for when his dogslilp nnd had
his drink, he took the can between his
teeth and made oil' to a clump of buslte-
with it, xvhere he carefully pi iced it out
nt ..ir-ht nnd then returned to the notice.
When tho two men looked In the bushes
tliej- found no less than foil i teen cans,
which had been placed theie as tho result
ot pievious thtlts liy It is that the dog
had not sold these cans or taken them
b ick to bo refilled. Is not stated. The facts
of the case xxeie reported to Police station
11, and on consult'itlon with the persons In
terested It xx. is determined not to prose
cute the thief. His master hid never
known that he had acqulied tho milk
habit, but after this he will be ki pt In tho
house In the morning until after the neigh
