There was less drunkenness and
disorder in Haitford Tuesday than at
any other election in years past.
Hurrah, lor the ballot system.
Without revolution and without
bloodshed, the nation decided Tues-nay
to have a change and the change
will take place on March 4th next.
The election Tuesday was the
calmest affair you ever saw to be called
an election. It looked like a social
gathering, rather than a political
Ella Elliot, a young girl of New
Albany, Ind., was run over and horribly

politician dogged his footsteps;
no "hustler" administered to his van.

Churchill, Duke of Marlborough,

Look outfor the Democratic scramble
for the offices. We learn there
are already about a dozen applicants
for the post-office here, and of course
there will be others. There will be
just about on an average a dozen applicants
for every place to be filled,
and then the fun begins.
Tin: Democrats are claiming Butler
county by several hundred majority.
Now, right hero we propose to
draw the line. We have made arrangements
to stand it for New York,
Kansas, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois to
go against us, but when Democracy
sets her unholy foot upon tho neck of
dear old Butler, we think it is time to
call a halt. We consider this the
most uukindcst cut of all.
Tin: Australian Ballot System was
thoroughly tested Tuesday in Kentucky,
and it comes out with emphatic
approval from the people. A few
ballots were thrown out from some
failure or other on the partot the voter,
but as a whole it has proven satisfactory,
Another election will thoroughly
acquaint the people with tho
system and will add much to the possibility
and probability of fair elections.
The happiest man in all Louiavillo
Wednesday morning after the election
returns were in, insuring the election
of Cleveland, was our own John C.
Riley. He was the Captain of acorns

one hundred strong, who were parading
the streets, yelling theracselves
hoarse for their favorite. He marched
at the head of the column with
his hat hoisted high in the air on bis
cane and presented a most striking

and knowing the justice of the cause
we have no apologies to offer. Our

Some of our contemporaries havo

Watterson stock has been steadily
tailing tor tne last three days and is
now away down below par. Here's
what Henri said last May about the
election of Mr. Cleveland:
" Washington, May 8. Tho Demo
crats, on tne otner nanu, are away
out at sea. No one believes the election
of Mr, Cleveland possible, yet
all are afraid of the defeated ex-President's
show of strength in States
wholly Democratic or hopelessly Republican.
It may be that the great
Democratic party stands in need of
additional discipline at the hands of
that God of whom it has been written
that "whom He loveth He
If so, so bo it! But it does
seem to mo that a little sober reflection,
and tho sensible putting this and
that together, would save us a world
ot needless wandering through the
wilderness of doubt and disaster."
"Washington, May 11. The
New York World this morning pub
lishes the following note from Mr.
'In the present instance I am, as
usual, opposing the predilections of a
great majority of my political comrades,
who favor the nomination of
Mr. Cleveland. I do not think that
Mr. Cleveland can secure the electoral
vote of the State ot New York,
and, therefore, as that vote is
to his election, that he can't
bo elected. I do not think that any
issue is exclusively represented by
him which makes his nomination a
matter ot duty and honor. Hence, I
have urged, am urging and shall continue
to urge, until the question is
settled by the Chicago Convention,
the selection of some Democrat not
identified with the factions in tho Empire
State. I have been, and 1 am a
friend, not an enemy, of Mr. Cleveland,
who, in my judgment, will
make a grievous mistake if he allows
his great name and fame to take the
hazards ot another candidacy.' "
"See here," yelled the wrathful
man, as ho took off his hat and showed
a head as bald as a campaign lie.
"Yes, I see," said the druggist.
"Did you ever try ray unparalleled
"That's just what I did," answered
the bald-beaded man, in tones of
wrath "and here's the result.''
The druggist mused a moment.
"It works that way sometimes," he
said. "The hair grows so fast, you
see, that it pulls itself out by the
roots. Now, if you will only strengthen
your scalp by using a few bottles
of my acraeistical scalp balm "
At this point they cliched.
A Fatal Pall.
Hazleton, Pa., Nov. 7. The tres
tle spanning a forty-foot ravine at
Honeybrook broke to day, precipitating
to tho bottom ten loaded cars
and six men. At noon the men were
on the way to their dinner on a train,
and whilo crossing tho tresslo the timbers
gave way,precipitating the train
and men to the bottom.The loud noise
made by the crackiug timbers and
tumbling miners attracted the attention
of other workmen, who rushed
to the scene. A horrible sight met
their gaze as they peered mto tho yawning
abyss. Nearly fifty feet below
the surface could be seen a heap of
debris, with legs arms, and other
parts of human victims protruding.
Willing hands rushed to the assistance
of the unfortunate men. Mich
ael Kardo w.is first uncovered. Ho
met a terrible fate. Every bone in
his body was bioken and his face was
crushed beyond recognition. The
following were taken out alive:

broken and body badly bruised; Andrew
Hoxicas, skull cracked and
face cut: Michael Regatissa, fractured
skull, and arms and body crushed,
will die: Vudanni Costefa, cut and
bruised, injured internally; John
Jodha, arm broken and back injured;
John Baraska, chest chrushed aud
four ribs broken will die. All were
removed to the hospital.
Found Dead in a Saloon.
Martin C. Caunons was found dead

drunk yesterday oveniug and
Sullivan locked him in a back room
and went away. The verdict of the
Coroner's jury was to tho effect that
he died from hemorrhage and exposure.

I do not believo in slow driving.
Thero Is no moro virtuo in driving
slow than in driving fast, any moro

if it is slow and dull nnd plodding.
Thero aro very good peoplo
who seem to imagino it is humbly
pious to drivo a spavined, galled,
glandered, spriug halted, blind, staggered
jade. Thero Is not so much
virtue in a Rosinnnte as thero is in a
Bucephalus. At tho pneo some
drivo, Elijah, with his horses of
firo, would havo taken thrco weeks
to get into henvert. .
Wo want swifter horses nnd swifter
men nnd swifter enterprises, and tho

as tho battles of tho world are probably
not all past our Christian pa
