I'be decoration was elaborate on the public
bullditiKS, and tbe club bouses contented
themselves wltb a display of stars and

snd 0;rmaay mingle with tbe red, white
itnd blue. All tbe places of business are
ilosed and tbe entire population ot Man

surrounded by crowds anxious to recall tbe

New York, Nov. 26. Josephine Negg,
n Inmate of Blackwell's Island Lunatio
isylum, was drowned Saturday afternoon,
t was the cause of a remarkable excite
nent among tbe lunatics, by whom it was
vitnessed. Several parties or squads of
tailenta, besides tbe one from which the
uioide broke away, were walklag about
he grounds. Each group formed in ranks
ind walked In double file. A nurse walked
tt the bead, another at tbe feet and another
nldway of the line. All tbe members of
he different parties were quiet and tract
.ble until Josephine Ni?g broke away, and,
running; to tbe water side, plunged Into
he nyer from the top of tbe sea wall.
1'beoalltbe lunatics became greatly ex
ited. Tbe ranks were broken up and tbe
mtlents rushed hither and thither.
WITH CRIES AND SHRIEKS
i bai could be beard with painful dlstin t
nesa on the New York city shore. Tbe
nurses, wltb great difficulty and by tbe
"Xervlse of the greatest aotlvlty, kept their
quads huddled up together, although no
restlge of order was retained. As fast as
one or another ot tbe frensled patients
roke out from the group she would be
confronted by a nurse aud turned baok, snd
the watchful nurses did not allow one to get
between them and the river. In this tbey
were very promptly aided by other nurses,
who ran out of tbe pavilions, and all tbe
nursea soon began to force the lunatics to
ward the house, in wblch they could be
locked up. Tbe
ANTICS Or THB FRIGHTENED LUNATICS,
the noise and disorder of their confused
movements aredesoribed as having furnish
ed one ot tbe most exciting scenes that could
be wltuessed.. While they were being
boused assistance ot all kinds was gather
ing rapidly. A work-house Inmate first
reached tbe scene. Seizing a life-line from
one of tbe rescue boats tbat are placed all
along tne Dan, ne lumped after
tbe woman, and another prisoner,
who arrived a second later,
followed bia example. The patent guard
boat, containing a single keeper, was near
tbe New York shore off Eighty. fourth
street, and tbla keeper hurried to the spot.
But all efforts to save tbe woman Jailed.
She waa swept away by the swift running
ebb tide and was drowned. The men were
pulled out almost exhausted.

How do you foul about your prospects

Well, I suppose every candidate looks
at tbe bright side of bis chances. I rely as

Arthur's policy In making appointments.
He has all through notably avoided making
appointments tint would be at all connect,

Now, I have had nothing to do wltb tbe old

that Arthur understands the altuation here
as well as any local politician. In fact I
bave reason to know tbat be does. "
"Have you made application ?"
"Well, I bave sent in no petition. I
take no stock In petitions. I could go out

THE FtANT MAX ON THE SPEAK
EBSHIP. What Sunaet Oox Think of the Bitua-tlon-If
the Country Knows What ie
Good For Itaolf Cox la the Man for the
N'ew York, Nov. 36. Congressman Or
lando B. Potter and Wm. Dorsbelmer call
ed on Mr. S. S. Cox yesterday at bis resi
dence at Mo. 18 East Twelfth street, and
each of them bad a long conversation with
b!ra on tho contest for tbe Speakership.
Wheu a correspondent visited Mr. Cox to
the afternoon be was seated in a great
armed ohalr, wttn a pile of legal cap before
blm. His feet were encased in s pair of slip
pers and a drab silver smoking Jacket bung
over bis shoulders. He was busy writing
his lecture upon Nendelssobn, whlcn be de
livered tn tbe evening at tbe Tbala theatre.
Wben the last sentence was written
he dropped the pen and looked at
tbe reporter, who sat behind tbe table.
For a moment he eyed bis visitor aod then
"Do you mind telling me something?"
asked the reporter.
"Ah, spare yourself the trouble; some
thing about the state of affairs in Washing
ton, I know what you are driving at, " said
Mr. Cox. He took a pencil and drew the
picture of a friend on the pad before blm.
"Wben I left Washington," he said,
ABOUT THIRTY DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS
were there, but there waa an unusual
amount ot newspaper noise which waa
thoroughly disproportionate to tbe numbnr
of members present. No one can make a
diaznosis of tbe Speakership disease with
out considering the Influence of the newspa
pers. Wben I went down to Washington
ten days ago, I fonnd tbat York State, of
which I was accredited as a representative,
bad been counted out by tbs distinguished
authorities on tbe Speakership. I had not
been there two daya before tbe whole thing
changed. Democratic delegations desired
to obtain New York's good will for 164. ' '
"How did the chances of a New York
delegate for the Speakership appear to
Mr. t'nv removed his eye-glasses,
FOR a MOMENT REMAINED SILENT.
He took tbe pencil again and continued:
' 'Nearly all the members, who had been
more or less preoccupied about tbe Speak
ership, wanted to give New York tbe first,
if uot the second choice. California,
North Carolina, Ohio, Indiana and Michi
gan, wltb a large healthy vote for myself,
are determined that the campaign of 18S4
shall not bo a fiasco, as tbat ot 1680 and
1876 were. Attempts have been made to
bave me give in detail the atrengtb the
New York candidate may bave. After tbe
lugubrious success of otber arithmetical
men, I do oot tblnk I will go Into figures.
It seems u be utterly Impossible tbat tbe
public should believe any of these trashy
calculations. They began by
GIVING UK THIBTT-FITB VOTES
when I eot to the capital. I left with about
seventy in a vote of 118 or 194. So thu
ordinary counting goes."
At this stage ot the game there was a
slight Interruption, and the merry twinkle
in his eye was supplanted by a look of seri
ousness. He straightened himself up lo
bis chair and looked the reporter tn tbe
face, and then oontlnued in a grave tone of
voice, "Whether I be the nominee of the
Sew York delegation or not, somebody
ought to be, and that somebody should not
represent whisky .or Iron. He should
represent tbe revival ot commerce, ship
ping and otber liberalities, something
which I have represented as an O bto boy,
and wblch has kept me seventeen years as a
representative of tbe great commercial
entrepot of this country."
"How soon will tbe majority of delegates
arrive In Washington f"
"They are oot likely to be there
BEFORE THANKSOrTINO DAT.
Tbo New York delegation can't be there
until after tbe holidays, say next Friday or
"Have any of the New York delegation
called upon you stnos your arrival In
"My colleague, Mr, Potter, called and
we had quite a long conversation. Mr.
Dorshimer also paid tne a visit, and wo li.wl
a chut. Of tbs members from Western
New York Gen. Rogers, Mr. Green losf,
Mr. Arnottand Mr. Baileys bave called.
They snv that tbe delegates from tbls Stste
will be on hand by the holidays, if not be
fore.. Tbey are all of one mind, and tbat Is
that New York will not give way
TO A sflU HURRAH
shout one or two men when so much is at
stake In 1684. I hare positive opinion as
lo my success It New York does what she
ssys she will do."
"What is therein the cry of sectional
