Cincinnati, Oct. 8. Tliere never wai
more bustle in the way of preparation on
tue etreets and in places of r (nu t on the
Jay prt'cedittjf an election In t.'iiicinnatl
Iban there to-day. The wlinlc town Is
attir. Many politicians fioiii Die nital ilK
tricts are bere taking obaervations. Hun)
llton county is rr-rsnled us the key to the
situation in tbe slate, and alone with City
ahoK county it Is counted upon by the
Democrat to (five Ibeui their majority. On
one point there i.s no difference in opinion
now, and that Is that an overvt helming vote
will be cunt all over the state.
The second amendment ruiro, which has
run over the tate like a lire over a dry
prairie, will bring out ail the votes that
pa: tr zeal fails to bring. There is nunc
alarm here onai.ountof the probable adop
tion of that amendment. No one doubts
that it will get an Immense vote, hut thost;
who are pecuniarily interested in opposing
It console thcuueives with tbe belief that
tme. third of the voters will not vote on
sither amendment, aud that the second will
f ill short of gettlnir a majority of all the
votes cas:. But the danger of It passing
is so real that it excites anxiety and fear
B ith parties, speaklug conservatively'
now, believe that the Tote lor Governor
wid he close. The best Judges estimate
that neither party will have a large major
ity in the Legislature. Here in Hamilton
county the Democrats claim ability to elect
their H itrh lund House ticket, but bets are
obtainable only that tbey will elect a major
ity of it. Tbre is so much about the
present situation, both in Hamilton county
and the state Uutt ft is Impossible to
make any safe forecast of the probable re
sult. From ibe ouUet it bus been difficult to
forecast this comine Ohio election, compli
cated as it ife, with petty local discords in
oue party and tbe temperance question in
both parties, Tbe suddenness with w hich
tbe prospect of tbe second amendment he
u'oming a part of the constitution dawned
upon the leaders of both great parties is
phenomenal. In 1874, when tbe question
of license or no liceuse was submitied 10 a
separate vote of tbe people along with the
constitution which tbey rejected, fifty-five
counties gave majorities against, and thirty
three majorities for license, and
it was defeated iu the state by a ninjnrity of
a trifle above ",2O0 majority in a total vote
of li'SJ.OOO, in round numbers, or al about
bail as much aa is the vote on next Tues
The surprise al the time of that vote was
thatrjwenty-tbree of the cotinti"s giving
majjrlties against license were Democratic,
and of the counties givlnff a majority in fa
vor of license nine were IU'piiblicin. The
present indications are that there bas bee
in notn parties a latent senti
ment in favor of restricting the rile of
liquors pervasjvo to an extent never
dreamt d of by th leaden of the two par
lies until since it has been called ittlo activi
ty by the tremendous campaign of the ad
rocates of the second amendment. There
is a speck of danger in the ivay of the full
vote on this amendment availing. The
amendment as presented is a coiiipmnd
one, namely; "For license, yes or no;"
"For prohibition, yea or no." There is a
very prevalent notion that any voter may
vote for both these amendments and have
both his votes count. The Hamilton coun
ty Temperance Alliance called upon emi
nent legal eounsel loss than a week ago,
and learned that voting for both amend
ments would be equivalent to voting for
neither, and consequently to throwing such
votes away. This and other complications
in tbe count aud aXiar the count are likely
to embarrvs thh anvmdmcnt, even if it
should get the requisite majority of votes.
No political party in this state on any occa
sion eer madfl such a tremendous and
thoroughly searching canvass as the temper
ance classes bare made In this campaign, and
that without an organ in the shape or a dally
newspaper. Mauv hold that It is possible
tor both clauses of tbe temperance amend
ment to puss, inasmuch as the sale of
liquors for other purposes than a beverage
would not be prohibited, and tl. it a license
for tbe sale for lawful uses would not be
incompatible with the prohibition of iu
manufacture and sale for tinluwful pur
poses. In 1874 tbe couulies in Ohio were classified
as forty-one Republican and forty-seven
Democratic. Take them now on the basis
of the majorities given at the election last
full on Secretary of State and they will
stand: Counties giving Republican minor
ities, 42. Counties giving Democratic
Carry the analysis further, classing all
jountk's as close whose majorities are less
ihan five per cent, of their total vote, and It
show-; Number of counties Uepubllean but
close, 10; number of counties Democratic
but close, II. This will also give thirty
two counties undoubtedly Kepubllcin and
thirty-live counties undoubtedly Democrat
ic on the basis of I lie votu 'ln October,
The ten counties close, but K-piiblicin,
is classified above are Delaware, M ulison,
Mahoning, Noble, I'eirr, I'oilago, Preble,
"oloto, Van Wert mid Williams.'
J'lm eleven close DmiMcratlc coiinlles are
Adams, Ikilmont, Clcnnunt, Hancock,
ll.gliland, Knox, Muskogee, Timlding,
lltss, Stark und Washington.
Of the uiiovo twenty-one counties there

A rainless Life Destroyer Which Makes
its VioMtns Utter Pleromg Shrieks.
Nkw Havkn, Conn., Oct. 8. A well
known Bridgeport professor makes publlo
the fuels concerning an engine which ho
calls tbe instant and noiseless annlhllator
of human life, which can be operated with
out detection, and which the United States
government has Just refused to patent for
him, because of its dangerous character,
and from fear that it will be used fot
nefarious purposes. A reporter visited
this man to-day, and was shown the ma
chine. "The prlucipal objection to it," said the
inventor, "on the part of tbe United States
Patent otllee was, I believe, the
fact that they feared I was In
Icacue with belligerent Irishmen
and was seoking tho prot ctlon ol
our government iu tha future work of kill
ing off Kngllah member of Parliament who
ure hostile lo the Land Leaguers."
Ttic invention consist of a brass belt ol
flue workmadship. It Is fortv-two inches
long by live Inches wide and Is five-eighth
of un inch thick.
"Do you see tbatf" be exclaimed, point
ing lo a slightly projecting nipple that was
exactly in tbo middle of the belt. "lean
drive a pullet from that nipple that will pen
etrate the skiu of an ox at a drstance ol
sixty feet. If the ox is alive I will guaran
tee to kill it with In fifteen minutes by means
or me same pellet. There will be no noise
from tbe firing of this deadly missile, as
you shall see before you leave. I simply
place my elbow to my side and tbe machine
goes off with tho force of a riflu.
The pelbt is, von will note," and hero the
invento. tools uuivn a eaxe containing sever
al grey, grecuib-loalug object about
three inches long and u lango as the heads
of a pencil, as heavy as ho much lead, but
no h ad enters into iu composition. "It is
all poison, concentrated by pressure, 100
purls into one part, and the ingredients of
Unit poison Is my secret. Now If you will
wnlt a moment I will hriotr iu a dog that I
have in tbo bade yard, and which decided
this morning to lay on the altar of science.
Y'ou will then be able to Judge as to tbo
effectiveness of my beaotrrtrl invention."
Iu the absence of the old man tbe cor
respondent took up the dwadly belt and ex
amined it closely. Though the outside was
of brass H was lined with steel and
was very flexible and hollow. The front
w as wider and tliWcr than the sides and
back, aud the wholo machine folt much
heavier than it looked. A hinge allowed
tbe hack to open and the belt to encirclo
the body. Once In place it soap pod togeth
er much like ahaudettff. The entire frout
was composed of smooth brass, on the
it nderslde of which, right under the nip
ple, I he re was an attachment which seemed
to bo to enablo tho wearer to load the belt.
Ol her wise tho machine looked far from be
ing dangerous. The poor dog was placed
by the stove. The professor brought out an
air pump from tbo closet, placed the belt
under it, and proceeded to clruige il with I
When bu bud finished tho gauge in tbo
pump stood tit 20,000 pounds. The bell
was then quite rigid, but gave no evidence
of the tetrlble strain upon It. After be bad
removed tho belt from tiio pump ho threw
aside tils coat, clasped tbe belt about him
placed one of the pellets in (bo nipple, ami
arranged two little steel levers, ono under
each arm, which , ho then connected wiih
the belt. After replacing hi s clothlmi
Liking cure to put Hie nipple through
button hole In his waistcoat, where It was
scarcely obsertiuhle, ho announced that ho
"Watch mo cloely," said he, "you
will hear no sound."
Facing the dog he pressed his left elbow
sgalnst his side, which action, he said,
"cockud" the strangn devlco, making it
ready lo go off from a slight pressure on the
oilier sldo of his body. Next his right arm
"There," said he, with a nervoua mo
tion, wiping tho beads of sweat from his
forehead, "that dog Is shot. In less than
fifteen minutes it will be dead."
It. did not seem possible that tho dog hud
been struck with anything, Tho professor
explained that tho penetration was so
swift and tho hole made by tho pellet so
.mult that It caused very II tt In pain, no
more than that nude hynhe point of a pin.
Suddenly tho dog gavo u piercing
shriek, Jumped from tho floor Into the
nlr, and full hark lifeless. Ho was
dead. "It Is not necesnry," said the
Professor, "that Oioaa projectiles should
reach a vital pnrt to cause death. It Is only
