Akiion, April 3, The election passed off
quietly, a very large vote being polled.
There has been more scratching than has
ever been known befoVo in tho city. Tho
result is not yet known with any degree of
accuracy, but so far as returns have been
received it bIiows the election of L. D.
Watter, Democrat, for Mayor, by at least
150 majority; John McCourt, Republican,
for Marshal, by 100; C. S. Cobb, Republican,
for Solioitor, by 25; James Wildos,

Tho Domocratio nominee for Judge received
moro than his party strength in this county,

of 500 over the voto for Mayor two years
ago. The Eighth Ward gives Farloy 950

April 3. The elections
excited more than usual interest. All
tho wards in the town ate Democratic.
All the Democratic town and township officers
were elected by the usual majori
Tho most interest, however, centered
nbout the Democratic primary election,
which was also held yesterday, the contest
for Auditor boing tho main fight. The candidates
were Arthur Bitlcr, of this place,
nnd W. F. Torrence, of Now Bremen.
The Utter is probably nominated by 500
majority. The Democratio ticket, as nominated,
is as follows: For Representative,
tlio present incumbent, G. W. Holbrook ;
for Auditor, W. F. Torrcnco; for Surveyor,
John Walsh; for Commissioner. John Worst;

done, aud considerable money changed
Columbus, 0., April 3. The election
passed ott quietly. Its absolute quiotnrss
wns perhaps its most popular featUTtt. The
fight teemed to bo concentrated upon tho
head of the ticket by some of tho elements
of tho Republican party. Otherwi'so it was
centralized upon the balance of the city
ticket. Returns from seventeen precincts
indicate the election of the head
of the Republican ticket, General C. C.
Walcott, for tho Mayoralty. Otherwise
the complete Democratio city ticket has
been elected. General Walcott made largo
gains in the German wards, and the balance
of the Democratio ticket made largo
gains in the samo wards. Thus tho question
became less political and more personal,
so far as tlio head of the ticket was
concerned. The Democratio party practically
gained the advantage.

of six. We also elect our town.spliip ticket
by a majority. There was an unusual
amount of Dcrutohiug done.
Cincinnati, Aptil :5. Returns ruining in
slowly, owing largely to the fact that there
were three distinct tickets iu the field
Democratic, Repuhliiaii and Municipal
Reform. The lend pencil lias been used
with great liberal. ty. The ward ofliccrs
being voted lor on the general ticket adds
largely to the delay in completing returns.

Industrial 3:i.'il in 'Willi
Wxsiiinoton, April ii. Lieutenant Pratt,
of the Indian Training School at Carly.sle,
I'a., iu liis report to General Eaton, the
Commissioner of Indian Atl'airs, gives
?ouie interesting facts about the Indian
school and its lcsiilts. Tlio school
xn opened Nox ember 1, 1N"0, xvith
117 young Indians. Others xvere added, mi
that at the end of the first yeiir there were
2i0 pitiis in the school, at the end of the
second year U'.i". nnd'at the present time

gills ninl two-thirds boys. He ays;
Fiom the beginning our principle t
been in place t lie most emphasis on iuilus
trial training; next English speaking
then literary tvaiuing. To accomplish this
xx e early in the xvork established shops for
mechanical instructions in enrpentery,
biacksiuithing, xxagou making, harness
making, tailoring, tiumithiug,
printing and baking, and one farm of
115 acres gives some scope for agricultural
training. We have axoided theory in our
training, adhered to practice, being governed
to a great extent by the old apprentice
system. They give half of each day to
work and the other half to school, and xve
have found that our progress is proportionately
greater in each than if the attention
was devoted to either the one or the other
for the whole time.
Under this system we have under training
as carpenters, thirteen boys ; as wagon
makers and blacksmiths, fifteen; as harness
makers, fifteen; as shoemakers, nineteen;
as tailors, twelve; as tiunors, eleven ;
as printers, five; as bakers, three, and
every boy not engagod at somo trade is required
to work upon the farm. We think
our boys as forxvurd in capacity for receiving
instruction in each of the several
branches as the averago white boy. The
blacksmith shop apprentices after txvo
years' instruction, are able to iron a wagon,
repair a ploxv.lshoo a horse, etc. The other
trados make like progress. The Lieutenant
is of tho opinion that the true solution
of the Indian problem is to scatter the Indians
among tlio xvhitcs tho same as other
foreign races aro treated, breaking up
tribal relations nnd encouraging labor and'
intelligence among them,

to Adnirville, in Utah. "You must
huvq made a good deal of money on that
route, did you not, Mr. Dorse'?" inquired
lUs". " No, sir, I mado nothing on that
route," icplied Dorscy. "Did you not
make about $.",000 on that routo?" continue
I lllisi, growing precise and specific.
" No sir, 1 did not make a cent on that
" Whv, how so?" "
"Because Rerdell stole $5,000 of the
money on that route." teplied Dorsoy, to
the astonishment uf Bliss. "That is not so,"
hotly fired back the chief la xx'ycr.
" Well," drawled out Dorsey, in an emphatic
and passionate tone, " to state it
mere correctly, it xvas only about $-1,900
that Rerdell stole from us on that route.
Probably I xvas mistaken as to tho exact
amount. It xvas only about $-1,000."
Tho native manner in xvhich Dorsey
brought out his point, und tlio readiness
xvith which lie sprung the trap on Bliss
xvhich Bliss had set for him, exasporuted
the lawyers for tho Government nnd brought
out applause from tho friends of tho defense.
Aside from this incident, tho proceedings
xvere of a routine character. Argument
was mado pro and con on tho
demand of tho Government that Dorsey
produce his letter books. This Dorsey
declined to do, because somo COO
leaves had been torn out of tho
books, and among them wns tho
letter of December 9, 1878, which tho Gov-
ernment xvanted. It is believed that Rerdell
knoxvs who did the tearing, and whero
tho leaves are now. Tho Court ruled that
the defendant is now compelled to produco
the books, but that tho prosecution could
introduce secondary evidenco to favor their
Mr. B. U. Keyser xvas hero sxvorn, and
produced the account of S. W. Dorsey
xvith the German-American National
Bank, xvhich slioxvs that on July
25, 1878, a check xvns paid for S502.
Dorsey, resuming, said ho only saxv A.

Tlio Attorney (aviioriil'H Decision
iovrnor ol 1 milium, a
W xsiiimiton, Apiil ". Attorney General
Hrewster, in rendering his decision on tho
appointment of a Postinnstcv General,
adopied the opinion delivered by his predecessor,
Attornex General Deveu, that the
Pi evident has 1ml ten days subsequent to
tlio death of a Cabinet oflicer in xvhich to appoint
a successor. This gixe.s tlio President
txventy days troin the death of Judgo
Hoxve to select a Postmaster General, or
until April II. The President intends
leaving here for Florida on Wednesday
uet. Should he conclude to remain iu
the South beyond the t'nno in xvhich ho
must make the appointment, he will designate
the Postmaster (ie'ieral from his resort.
There are politicians here to-night
who believe, howexcr. that the appointment
will be and that the object
of the President iu postponing his departure
one day xas to decide upon
a man for the place. Who tlio man will
be no one will now venture to guess. As
time moves on every one seems to veer out
further fiom any definite idea upon the
subject. Almost every man mentioned for
the pluce noxv looms up xvith equal prominence,
and there will not be very great surprise,
no matter who the man shull be. An
evening paper announces another candidate
from Indiana in the following langauge :
"One of the latest candidates for Postmaster
Goneral is Governor Porter, of Indiana,
and he will, it is said, havo tho united
support of the Republicans of
his State for the place. It is urged in his
behalf that his appointment would be
wise stroke in a political sense, in that it
would encourago tho Republicans of Indiana
to greater offorts to recover the State.
It is claimed for Governor Porter that he
abandoned the First Comptrollership of the
Treasury to enter tho race for Governor,
thon regarded as a sort of forlorn hope ;
that he won after a gallant fight, and therefore
is entitled to pocullar consideration."
