New Orleans, La., November 3. At 7
p. m. the indications are that E. A. Burke,
Democratic candidate for state treasurer,
is elected by probably 2.1,000 majority. All
the Democratic Congressional candidates
except probably, Acklen in the Third Dis
trict, are elected. Isaac W. Patton, Demo
cratic candidate for Mayor of Hie city, is
elected by about 15,000 majority. The re-
mniiioVr of the parish and city ticket is so
scratched that it Will require the odlciitl !
count to determine who are elected. The
colored voters supported the Citizen's ticket I
almost Milidly. The Nationals cast u very j
small vnic. i
Montoomeuv, November 5, Indications
are that the Democratic nominees ore elect

Iu ihis city Rice, Greenbacker, has 507 ma
jority. This county (Pulaski) will go for
Rice by over 1,000 majority. General
apathy prevails throughout the state. The '
general impression prevails that Cravcus,
Democrat, is elected iu the Third district,
but by a greatly reduced majority. The
Democrats are confident of the election of
the Democratic candidate in other dis
tricts DELE WARE.
Wii.MixoTON, Nov. 5. There is a falling

ocrat, ducted to Congress. The Republi
cans' rau no candidate for either of the
above olllces, the only opposition . being
Greenbacker. The Republican ran a
ticket in Netr Caitle county, but without
IUCC63S. It woj expected that the Green
backers would bare developed some strength
in Sussex county, but the returns so far in
dicate that they offered no mtitarial opposi
tion. In Kent county the Democrarlc
ticket was unoppovd.

Sr. Paul, Nov. 5. Scattering returns re
ceived indicate the Greenback vote insig
nificant on the state ticket. Returns on
Congressman in the Third district indicate
Washburn (Rep.) largely ahead of the State
ticket in Minneapolis; slightly behind in
St. Paul and in ont counties. If elected it
is by a reduced majority of 1876.
Trenton, Nov. 5. The probabilities are
that the Republicans will elct five of the

THE WHEELBARROW WALK.
STATEMENT OF THK MAN WHO DID IT.
Sin Franclteo Chronicle.
R. Lyman Potter, the celebrated wheel
barrow man, rolled his barrow down ' K
street, Sacramento, yesterday, followed by
several hundred men and hnva.
l.w I-.... ii j , .
"a urn. limn me -worse tor ins tramp ot
nearly 4,000 miles. To a Chronicle report
er he told the following story: "I started.
"iru iv. in n ocio.-k iu me aiternooD, Irom
Albany, N. Y., to walk 4,075 miles, from
that city to San Vranciarn In QAX iunrbli.v

was covered over durinor mv lourncv. I
had to stop several times to have it repair-
eu, as me jouing tnrcatenea to Knock it to
To Buffalo I averaged thirty miles a day.
I followed the turnpike from Buffalo to
Cleveland and Toledo, and afterwards fol
lowed the line of the Pittsburg & Fort
Wayne railroad, and leaving it, struck the
Chicago & Columbus. I got into Chicago '
May ti, aud stopped three days. After i
left Chicago did not stop more than
day or two anywhere on the route, except
at Plum Creek, Nebraska, where I had n
sunstroke, which laid me out for fifteen,
days. I never traveled on Sunday, because
it was oue of the conditions of the feat. I
found it hard to get over the trestle-works.
Every one on the road was very kind to me,
and would not, many times, take any money
from me. I took letters to deliver on ray ;
way at two b'Ls each, and got quite a mail
bag. Here the wheelbarrow man exhibited
a neatly kept diary, with stamps of several :
postal stations impressed on its leaves. The
book was full of autographs of principal
citizens in towns passed through.
"Are you much ahead of time?'' Inquired
the reporter. "Twenty-two days; 1 start
to-morrow for San Francisco, and can gel
there easily iu ten days. I could have been
here yesterday, but I could not travel Sun-
days." " Did the trip cost you much !" ,
"About f 300." Meals were expensive, four
bits and fl. I did not get footsore, but I '
am tired of the job and wish it was over."
Potter is a fine man, of splendid physique
aud wearing a full beard. There is not the
slightest sign of the madman about him,
but on the contrary, he exhibits the elation

strontia may ho used. Tho iridisation may
be completed during the working of the

Those pieces which it is desired to preserve '
iu the perfection of iridescence are never -placed
in the furnace a second time. - :
