Killed by Lightning.
Cixcinnaii, Oct. fl.-Never was tbrre
finer weather for a full turn-out at the
polls. Ii is a regular Indian summer d tr,
and pleasant enough for the oldest in in or
weakest in valid to come out. The vote at
the polite is Irregular, h that It is ery
ll'ht it! some of the preelneis and very
heavy at others. Th! heavy vole up to
noon Is at Mount Annum, Walnut Hill,
Pi ice's Hill, Cuuimiiiville and In the
country, As to the reform I)Mnoi:iailu lick
el. the Germans are uivins it the cold
rhoiililei1. At some of the (iernian pre
cmcta oot a single reform ticket t un be had,
and at others only a few. The ticket will
pet It strongest polls in :h'i suburas and in
the country, Within the city everybody
was provided early last niyht with tickets,
and nearly every voter walked up to the
polls with his ticket prepared and folded,
and aftrr depositiue it waHted away.
The indications at this hour tire that the
Vote' in the county w ill reach bout t;:!,000,
which is 8,000 below the vote po) led for Gar
Held and Hancock. Thir la absolutely in
loatin around the voting precinct, and the
discussions are much less frefiiieut than
usiul. The vole rui the locai ticket will he
irregular, and for the county officers it will
be wry irresuhir.

Thorn an .Sherlock, the reform candidate
for Treasurer, will cet an enormous vote,

cording to present appearances,
in Governor rberc in not much scralchlnp.
Iloadiy is runnint; well, but at the polli
one seltlom hears a candidate named. The
whole Interest centers on the tempera net
amendments. The brewers and the brew
inu Interest are working niiht and mniti
for the license and regulation amendments,
and the saloon-keepers are working against
both amendments. The brewers have five
ticket-holders at each precinct in the inter
est of the license amendment, (inly a few
women are outln the interest of prohibi
tion, and they are dietatit from the polls.
The ministers and members of churches
are out in force, holding tickets wholly liu
the interest of the second amendment. They
carry tickets for all parties, arid avoid clue
tionee r.nc for any particular candidate.
As to money, the I)emocrat are mot
generously provided. They distributed S'i'i
each to member of their executive com
mittee last night, while the Republican
distributed only $2f each. In all elccilmi.
here when voters come to the polls w.t'i
folded ticket-s. it has been hard to for. ci
the results. All such elections have been
characterized by a treat multitude id
scratched tickets. By these tokens this
election will be one of the worst cases of
scratched tickets in the history of the city.
The gamblers have not been bettins; on
this election and there is no betting to-day.
There tv .e been but few arrests from any
catiti and thus far there are no indications
of ilk -al voting. The estimate for Hamil

ticket will be mixed.

C'ln'cinnati, Oct. 9. In southern Uhio
the weather is mild and pleasant and very
favorable to a full turn out of voter. S,
far as heard from here the poll is the heav
iest to the EepublicAii wards. As to how
the vote is going no one can do more than
guess, as ballot Is a secret and no counting
is done until after 6 p. in.
Women have appeared at some polling
places asking voles for the secoud amend
ment. Ministers and prominent eburcu
member are also Attend lug the polls for thu
same purpose. The Democratic ticket aro
printed with votes against the amendment.
The ilcpubllcan ticket are printed with
"Yes" anil "No," so tlvata person desir
ing to vote for it must erase "No." It in
not likely the amend no tit will secure any
thing like a majority in this county, but it
will get a much larger vuto than the pro
hibitionists UMially poll. Owing to tho
length of the ticket aud tho amount of
scratching reports to-night will be late and

Drop Anchor off Qovernor'a Island
Hor Crow Taken off In a Starving
Nkw Yohk, Oct, 9. The American ehlp
Relle of Hath anchored off Governor'
Island Sunday evening, and a man on board
shouted to a boatman in the neighborhood:
"For God's sake, hurry up and take u
off, we're starviug." Boat were quickly
put out to tho ship, aud her crew, number
ing fourteen nion, were landed and con
ducted to the Sailors' Home, on Cherry
street. Two of tbe number were natives
of Manilla. Tho stories of tho crew differ
materially. One thing they all allege, i
Is that they had run short of provisions,
and for many day ,bad been kept
on an amount which they said
was Just sufficient to keep life In their bod
ies. "We left Manilla on May 17th," one of
the crew said. "More than a month ago
we ran short of provision and were put
on short ration. Up to that time we hud
had plenty of good food. Oar ration
were reduced to one, two or three
slice of bread a day, We never
got more than three, and sometimes
had but one; threo on four spoon
fuls of ricu and two or three spoonful of
beans, On September 'JO we spoke
the brig Lauretta and got from her
a barrel of water and some hard tack. A
week ago our food gave out and wo were
put on short ration again. We never
could have stood It but it happened to be
good weather, aud the captain didn't ask
ti to do a thing but tho work of the ship,
which didn't amount to much. " Another
of the crew Sild : "Wo wero treated bad
ly from the time wo left port, The pro
vision were bad and we were worked very
hard. Some of u complalued to the mite,
but ho made It harder for ti. We
knew better than to complain
to the captain, for be would
have made the man who went to
lit ni a good deal worse than he wa before.
It was understood all round that Carter
didn't want anybody coming to him with
eomplulnl. When wo got lo short of ration
that wo couldn't sleep at night, wa knew
that we wero starving, None of us heard
of thu Captain's cutting himself short fur a
day. Wo had a Jubilee when wo met the
Litui elia and got a supply of beef and hard
tack, but that wa soon exhausted."
Cupl. C. J. Carter saldi "The story that
Ihe provision were bad and that the men
