THE SICK GENERAL.
Rev. T. De Witt Talmage Dowells on ti
Leprosy of Sin.
BROOKLYN, Nov. IS.-Rev. Dr. Ta

sermon through the press "The Sic
General," the text selected being ]
Kings v. 1, "He was a leper."

What a scene it was: One of th

the face of the little Hebrew captive,

ow WASHINGToN, Nov. 19.--Frederick
sw C. Waite, formerly a customs official.

ato- voters remained away from the polls
"this fall and changed the political
He complexion of the country. Mr.
ndl Wtunso analysis of the election re
:al~trso New York in 1892, town by
town, shows that Republican farmers
fhthen allowed the election to go by de
.nd fault. This year the Republicans
his have not cast'as large a per .cent of
.the full vote in a single state as in~
.nd 1888. Hence, the only reasonable
bs. conclusion, says Mr. Waite, is that,
like the discontented Republicans in
nd 1892, the disconteinted Democrats this
the year joined the stay at home voters.
so -This stay at hlome vote has increased
gn in New'York from 75,000 in 1888, to
)l 185,000 in 1892, and to 425,000 this
year. In Pennsylvania it was 70,000
ys, in 1888. 230.000 in 1892, and 400,000
iuts this year. It has increased in Ohic
.n( from'40,000 in 1888 to 115.000 in 1892
ie and 290,000 this year. In Michigan
.nd there were 240,000 stay at homes this
his year, 20,000 in 1888 and 105',00 in
a !' 892. South Carolina, when she had
.nd 50.000 less volers than at present, cast
sel 183.621 voses for Hayes and Tilden,
ic while thlis year her total vote is not
mit luch over 60,0001, or about one fourth
ad. of heir full vote. Wisconsin has not

el and important piece of evidence was

found conlcealedI near the court house
it the morn inig after thle rioting at Wash'

ie kept a secret until today. It confirms

RAILROADS IN BETTER CONDITION.
A Net Income of Nearly a Million and a
COLUMBIA, S. C., Nov. 21.-The an
nualreports of the railroads for the
year ending October 31st, 1894; have
been made to the Railroad Commission
and will be printed for the benefit of
the Legislature. These reports do not
indicate that the roads are in such ter
rible condition financially. The total
net income of all the roads is nearly a
million and a half dollars. Only half
a dozen roads, as will be observed from
the figures, show a deficit. All- the
big roads of the State show large net
incomes. From. the figures of the
operating expenses it will be seen that
the roads have cut expenses heavily.
