have carried the governor beyond doubt,
two members of congress conceded, have

THE REPUBLICAN TRICK.
New York, Sept. 13. The latest news
from Maine to-night, from Republican
sources, indicates that there is a possibilty
that Davis may be elected. Nearly ninety
towns are yet to hear from, and tho Fusion
majority on governor has already been re
duced to MO by Republican figures.
No little indignation is expressed by tho
democrats at what they denouueo an intatn
mis Republican trick in delaying tho returns
as much as possible tor sinister purposes.
Regarding Maine the Tribune says:
Later returns begin to show Republican
gains; 348 towns give the Republicans a
majority of 1,841. Appearances indicate,
that the Fusiouists will lack 100 of a ma
jority. The voto is so close that a very
siiglitgaiti or loss in towns to hear trom
will change the result.

Waterloo, 111., Sept. 13.-Monroe coun
ty, the home of Hon. Wm. R. Morrison, is
all alive and enthused with Democratic
zeal. The Republican rally held here on
tho 2d of September was primarily to or
ganize and argument their own forces; but
it has also served to stir up tho luke-warm
Democrats. Almost evury precinct in tho
county has organized a Hancock and Eng
lish club. Those that havo not exnect to
do so soon. Like mushrooms they havo
sprung up in a single night. Tho active
members of clubs in this county already
number about eight hundred, with quito a
large number of passive members. There
is an effort being made to get up ono of the
grandest Democratic mass-meetings Water
loo ever witnessed. It will be held between
tho middle and last of October. At the
beginning of the political campaign it had
been predicted by some of the wise-acres
that Blonroe, which had hitherto been a
Democratic banner county in tho state of
Illinois, would lose many hundred voters,
thereby giving a Republican train : but that
this is a false prediction grows more pal
pable every day. It will give a larger Demo
cratic majority than ever, and Col. Morrison
will gain his usual, if not an increased

ILLINOIS CATHOLIC TEMPERANCE.
fi'itiNOFiEi.D, 111., Sept. 13.--TheCutholic
State Temperance Union, in session hero
during tho last two days, adjourned this
evening. Prior to adjournment the follow
ing olllcers wero elected for tho ensuing
year: President, Hugh J. Maguire, Chi
cago: first Vico-nrcsident. Juo. J. Pnrto

cno; spiritual director, Her. Father Bon
net, Braldwood. W. J. O'Neill 'of Strcator
while Mr. Orrin Hollis in his bareback acts
of horsemanship whirled and leaped about
as gracefully as though on the ground.
Mine. Dockrill carried off the palm as a
daring rider, especially in her management
of six horses, while her dives through boons
and balloons and skipping over strips of
bunting had a most lively effect on specta
tors. Sig. Scbastain, however, displayed
the crowning act in riding, standing on a
bareback horse with his son Louis standing
on his shoulders. Ho also performod many
other remarkable feats and left the ring
amidst applause. But in the equestrain
lino nothing surpassed for beauty and
race tho performmco of Miss Emma Lake
and her beautiful trained chestnur, while
Mine. Martha and Herr Ncyggard in their
oublo act do manege dem
onstrated their complete Control of
the horse with gratifying success. The Nel
son family were one of the best cards, the
athletic performances of tho father and two
sons being unsurpassed for their kind. Then
the tire horse, Salamauder, leaped through
burning hoops, and a leaping horso made
some astonishing jumps over a gate and
several hurdles. Two of tho most pleasing
exhibitions wero those iu which six black,
Trakeno Btallious, iu chargo of Mous. R. M.
Dockrill, and the yoke of performing oxen,
in charge of Mr. Charles White, figured.
Then there was batout leaping by acrobats;
Mr. John Batcholor's turning a double som
cr ault over the backs of eight elephants.
The entertainment concluded with ZuzclV
aerial dive and cannon act. The first was
fully as startling as tho latter, her dive of
iionrly 100 feet head foremost into tho net.
In tho caunou act she was projected fully
GO feet from a cannon, and landed unhurt
in tho not, very much to tho relief of the
