not regard the democratic chances as so du

wise: Because "Old Hill Allen" was elected
just after Grant carried the statu by $0,000.
Mr. Hill assumes that tbe democratic party
is in better condition now than It was in

NATIONAL CAMPAICN TOPICS.

date and a finer for the Presidential
New Yoiik, Sept. 23. Mr. B. F. Jones,
the chairman of the national republican
committee, w as in the city yesterday and is
at the Windsor hotel. He, with Mrs. Jones,
will probably be here for about a week. To
a reporter of the iieniM he said last night:
"I don't expect that the republican national
committee will meet much before Januarj
We shall probably hold our meeting at
Washington. Of course n e shall wait before
coming together for all tbe state elections to
be over, so we can better sun ey the ground.
As to the place of meeting of the national
convention e have a good manv applications
from eligible cities, 1 have no preference.
I have said that I think Philadelphia would
be found convenient, but that is about all
that 1 have said about that city. As to the
presidential candidate it is too early
to talk about that We are not discus-lug
candidates at present- Mr. Blaine
is enjoying himself in Europe, and of
course takes an interest In the political
affairs of his country, although he is away
from it. If there is as widespread a desire
for his candidacy as there was when he ob
tained Ills previous nomination, of course he
will be nominated if he will give his con
sent. I am sure at present no one but
himself knows whether he would give that
consent. Should Mr. Cleveland Denomin
ated I think it not unlikely that Mr. Blaine
would be also. All this, however. Is mere
conjecture. We shall be able to Judge after
the state elections of the effect of the new
elements in politics, namely, the prohibition
and labor votes. Both are important fac
tors and must inevitably control the move
ments of the two treat parties. Personally.
I think the prosperity of thecountrv.uhich
is traceable to republican policy, and es
pecially that part of It relating to protec
tion, will be very Influential in electing
the republican nominee to the presidency. "
Nothing ew Developed In the Inquiry.
totheCaUMof the Death of Mr. Nellie
Last (Thursday) evening Acting Coroner
Esquire W. A. Stout held the inquest over
the death of Mrs. Nellie LaMarr. The ex
amination was held in 'Squire Stoufi
office and the testimony of six witnesses
was taken. The evidence advanced was in
accordance with the account of the death
that appeared in Thursday's KKi'UiiLir.
Nothing sensational was developed, and as
is shown by the following statement made
by the physician in charge. Mrs. LaMarr
came to her death from an excess of chlo

A RATTY RALLY.-
The I'rohlb Open the Campaign tail
Night on Market Square -The Meeting.
Two hundred sick and sli'vei'og people
shitted around the stand on Market square
last night and heard Mr. W. T. Mills, the
prohibition candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor, talk about himself and occasionally
about prohibition. Mills devoted nearly
all his time to damning the news papers,
Inc'uding tbe Hkpl'bi.tc, and took up the
greater part of his talk ln attempting to
justify himself in the eyes of bis auditors.
The Kkplblic showed up the true char
acter of tbe man in glow lug colors yester
day, and it was natural that the woim
should turn. The only thing Mills shot off
last night was his mojth; b did not use
t'ue pistol which made him famous several
years ago. In referring to tbat story he
tried to gull his hearers into the belief that
he bad given the serenaders watn!ng before
be .tired into them. He did nothing of the
sort, as can be proven by witnesses. Tbe
first intimation that the merry serena
ders had of the cowardly attempt at assas
sination was the flash and crack of the
pistol between the slats or the shutters.
After Mills finished pleading for himself
he abused the two parties a little as much
as he could, however. and wound up. The
shivering crowd then dispersed.

A DELICATE OPERATION.
Dr I- E. Russell Removes a Quart
Fluid from m Man's Lung
Dr. Kussell went to Frospe.'t Ohio, yes
terday, to operate upon a rase in Dr. Hall's
practice. The patient was a man named
Knowlton. He had bad inflammation of
the lungs and a large abcess had formed on
tbe right lung, making it almost impossible
to breath and causing him the greatest suf
fering. He had become so weakened that
it was considered unsafe to give him an
amestbetic to perform tbe operation and ac
cordingly while perfectly conscious, the
surgeon cut an aperture between
the ribs, and penetrated the sack
containing the pus matter. The operation
was iustantly successful. About a quart of
liquid and matter was withdrawn from the
cavity, and the man was immediately re
lieved. Up to the time of the operation he
could only breathe in short gasps, like a dog,
but after the abscess was punctured he took
long respirations jvith un-peakab!e pleas

How It Wh. Spent by Hie Colored lpenile
orNprltigllclil The Day nud Ktenlng.
YeMerday being the 22il of September,
the colored people held celebrations in all
the principal cities and towns throughout
the country. In memory of the day on which
1'iesideiit Lincoln proclaimed freedom to
American slaves. The colored people of
this city intended and were making ar
rangements to hold
AX ETKNIVK LKl.KimvTIOX,
but on account of the eminent speakers be
ing engaged for other places, they thought
it best finally, to celebrate on a small scale.
At half-past 10 o'clock the procession,
composed of John Brown st G. A. It,
and the Bushnell Guard, and headed by
the Sextette band, started from the post
room, corner of Center and Main streets,
passed up Main to Limestone, south on
Limestone to Hixh, west on High to Ye! low
Springs, south on Yellow Sprlmrs to the
fair grounds. The crowd at the fair
grounds was very small, because of tbe
Inclemency of tbe weather. Tbe proces
sion made a very Importing appearance, tbe
Sextette band with their bran new uniforms
and Spencer Drake as drum major, made a
fine showing and played well. At the
grounds the regular army rules were ob
irved. At dinner the i-tst and guards, in
company with the baud, marched up to the
mess pot and receiv ed their share of sow
belly and beans in good old style. Scurry
says It was the best he ever ate. After
mess had been cleared away, some very in
teresting speeches were made b Kev. Geo.
W. Ziegler. of Wiley Chapel; Kev. G. U.
Green, ot the Fourth Baptist and the Kev.
Mr Woods, chaplain of the post.
The speeches of K"vs. Green and Zieg
ler were very interesting indeed; they
dwelt mostly ti)on the progret of the race
from the emancipation up to the present
time. Their theme was well discussed.
Kev. Wood's address was no less interest
ing. One point lie made is well worth
quoting. He said: "My dear friends, one
great drawback to the negro race is the
LACK OP KACE AFPIXITY.
Now, if this hail been the 4th of July,
a day celebrated by the whites,
these grounds could not contain the
cloiaJ reoplc; but as it is a day
sacred to the memory of our own race they
are not here, and whv ? Where are the
colored people todaj? You will find them
down in the cilj standing on the streets."
The rain put an untimely end to the ex
ercises at the grounds. At night there was
a festival at Funk s hall. At the wigwam
a grand emancipation ball was given by
Prof. John Scurry. This was one of the
mot orderly and well conducted public
balls ever given in this city. Everything
was in order. There were about seventy
ouples of ladies and gentlemen from some
of the best families of the city. Mr.
Scurry proved to the public that a public
ball can be made a tirst-class affair if rightly
condncted. Music was furnished by Scur

The Washington (D. C.) correspondence
of the Kii'ntrcr, of this (Friday) morning
contains the following description of Mr.
II. II. Warder's magnificent residence in
An Ohio man has outdone all who have
preceded him In the building line, and lie is
not accountable to anv constituency for hi"
splendid work. Mr. B. II. Warder, form
erly a manufacturer of Springfield, but
lately a resident of this city, has erected a
palace, Xo. 1,515 K street, which leaves the
homes the homes of Mr. Blaine, Senator
Palmer and others noted for their elegance,
quite in the shade. Architect Kendall has
been for some months completing the Inte
rior, and has resisted the prajers ot
hundreds of people who were anxious
to see the interior. Not even archi
tects and builders with their profes
sional influence could get in. The Spring
field millionaire's future residence truly
deserves the appellation of palace. Enter
ing the massive doorway the visitor climbs
an easy flight of stairs of Tennessee marble,
the landings of which are of most exquisite
Koman mosaic, and enters an immense hall
finished In Carlisle stone and

ln the western recess of the hall Is a deep
tire-place of lare proportions. On the left
of the vestibule is the library. This room
is In solid white mahogany, and is a marvel
In wood work. Opposite the library is the
parlor. The walls of this elegant room are
composed of that rarest of all woods, white
holly. Mr. W. C. Chand'er. who has had
charge of all the wood work In the build
ing, considers this room the perfection
of the art Every particle of wood
work in the building is hand carved, but
the work in the parlor is wonderful. The
most intilcate designs abound, and are per
fect The fireplace is arched by the largest
piece of the famous rose marble ever quar
ried and dresed. The floor is of white
marble tiles so perfect that it seems a
shame to cover it with a carjiet yet the lat

at a cost of S1.250. At the eastern end of
the hall is the dining-room. This Is proba
