The republican politicians were very
much surprised and disappointed when
the results of the enumeration of
the peoplr) became known In the
fall of 1880 The growth of the
southern states amazed them. The) had
counted upon a loss of political power in
the south and corresponding gain for the
north. When the returns of the census
began to be published it was alleged that
the southern enumerators were manipu
latlog the figures to increase the political
power of that section. Ho earnest were
they that the then commissioner wss ob
llged to retake the census at considerable
expense in sii of the counties of South
Carolina before her critics could be con
Tinred that the south was not trying to
cheat the loyal north out of half a dozen
represents! Ivr s and consequent electors)
The south, arues the National Detno
trot, will probably furnish such partisans
with fresh surpriaes in 1990. It is now
quite certain that the relative strength of
that section will not be reduced. It is
also probable that the state to show the
greatest relative growth in population
will be a southern one the modest state
of Arkansas claiming the honor, with a
close follower in the state of Florida.
Perhaps of all the surprises and disap
pointments in store for haters of the
south, the greatest wiil be found in the
figures showing the relative increase of
the white and black races. Prom statis
tics gathered by the several states since
the census of 1880 was taken it is confi
dently predicted that the census of 1890
will show thst white supremacy is not Ic
danger in any other southern state. On
the contrary the whites will every where
gain on the Macks The effect of such a
showing will be stimulating to every
southern interest, and especially to itnmi
gralion. The persistent talk of republi
can zealots about "giving up" cert. in
sections of the south to the negros, has
doubtless deterred many thousands of
white men and women from turning to
the south as a home. The census of 1890
will show that no part of the south is to
be Africanized. How the Ingalls. Rlairs
and Chandlers will be pained!
Patriotic men will rejoice In the growth
of the country without regard to sections
or to politics, but it is pleasant to point
out the facts which show that the party
of the people will lose nothing in politU
cal importance by the growth of our pop
ulation. ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS

Washington CITY, Feb. 7. Senator Sher

those who had been deceived by the forgery,

Impossible Cause of the Calamity
The Slaughter at the Dalles in Oregon
London, Feb. 7. -While about 300 miners
were at work yesterday in the Abasychan
colliery, near Newport, Wales, an explosion
of foul air shattered the various shafts and
imprisoned the whole force. It was at first
feared that every soul in the coal pit bad
perished, and for hours it was impossible to
learn tho truth, every way of entrance to
the mino ha ing been blocked up by shat
tered coal veins and broken machinery,
cages, etc. At length one of the shafts was
clear.sl sufficiently to admit of the down
ward pas-sage of a temporary cage, and an
exploring part y entered the mine,.
Then it mas found that about 1(M of the
meu had either lieen crushed to death or suf
focated by foul air, nearly all ventilation
having been stopped. In a short time forty
of the dead victims had been brought to the
surface, besides a number of others who had
suffered iujurie. At latest accounts the
managers of the colliery estimated the loss
of life at about 120, but as the mine had not
been thoroughly explored, it is possible that
some of those missing and counted as dead
may yet survive
Worse Than the First Estimate.
Later. The noise of the explosion was
heard a mile awav The gearing of the shaft
was thrown high into the air amid a vol
ume of flame and a dense column of smoke.
The first party of rescuers tried to penetrate
the old mine, but without success. They
sw many dead bodies, but were unable to
raeh them. After the smoke abated the
rescuers descended the shaft and were able
to enter a part of the works. A large sum
ber of those rescued were seriously burned
and some of them will die. The latest est i
mate of tlie dead is ISO. Sixty bodies have
Mangled Beyond Reeocnltion.
The bodies taken out are so horribly muti
aatad that except in two or three coses iden
titleation is iniossible. recognition being
renaereo iiouniy doubtful by the fact that
the men. owing to the close and heated at
inospliere of the mine, wore no clothing
whatever, except heavy boots to protect
tncir feat nroaa tue niutv bottom. It
ascertained that the mine has been iu a dan
geroiis condition tor some time past. Not
long ago an explosion occurred in an adjoin
ing pit, by which five men were killed. The
damaged pit was flooded and the water
gradually forced the gas into the pit which
was the scene of yesterday's disaster. Upon
tins information it is already suggested that
owners of the mine lie prosecuted for crimi
nal negligence. The physicians in attendance
pronounce half of the number of dead to
have been killed by fire and concussion, and
tin-other half by suffocation. Several of
those rescued alive have since died.

kota. Columbus, O., Feb. 7. The contest for
the lieutenant governorship is over. Mr.
Lampson has given up the cose, and said lost
night in regard to the matter: "After full
consideration, and acting upon the advice of
my attorneys and a conference of leading
Republicans, I havo decided not to attempt
to ink- i be contest to the supremo csiurt.
This decision is based largely upon legal
considerations." Mr. Laniison says that
tho records of the senate show that deposi
tions were read before that IkmIv, upon
which its decision was I wised. This, he says,
L not true, as it was only a summary pre-
jiared by Mr. Marquis' attorney, and really
a summary of their conclusions not of the
evidence. But the courts have decided that
these records canuot be impeached; so a suit
would rest on the serate I'll f fir II Then if
the courts should decide against the Demo
crats tho ease would be sent back to tho
senate to be tried over again, ith probably
the same result. This trial would delay leg
islative business and bo expensive, an ex
pense which, he says, he could not bear.
Who Stole the Record.
Col. W. A. Taylor, clerk of the senate, is
making a close Bearch to find out who has
been tampering with his journal. Portions

Col. Taylor thinks ButM newspaper corre

containing the record of the contest for lieu

they wore read and approved, and to this

A CHANCE FOR THE ANARCHISTS.
The Case of Fielilen ct al To Be Revived
at Washington City.
SpaiNoriKLn, Ills., Feb. 7 The Anarch
ist case is to be taken before the supreme
court of the United States for review.
Moses Salomon, the Chicago attorney for
Fielden, Schwab, and Neebe, received yes
terday an order from the chief justice of the
Illinois supreme oourt granting a writ of er-
from the Cnited Stat.- supreme court to
the supreme court of Illinois for tho purpose
of allowing the case to agaiu go lief ore that
court for review.
Salomon' Peralatent Contention.
Attorney Salomon has always contended
that the prisoners were deprived of a consti
tutional right by not being permitted to be
present w hen the state supreme court passed
sentence upon them. The United States su
preme court, in passing upon the case, said i
"The objection that the defendants were not
actually present in the supreme court of the
state at the time sentence was pronounced
cannot be made on the record as it now
stands, because on its face it shows thev
were present. If this is not in accordance
with the fact, the record must be corrected
below, not here- It will be time enough to
consider whether the objection presents a
federal question when the correction is
Position of the State Supreme Court.
The state supreme court has refused to al
low au amendment of the record . but not
being satisfied, apparently, that a federal
question is not involved, has now consented
to the federal court finally determining this
matter. It has never been the praotice of
the supreme court of this state to have pris
oners present when that body passes upon
the judgments of lower courts, but if the
federal court decides that such a right ex
ists, it will not only give the Anarchist pris
oners a new trial and possible freedom, but
will vitiate the judgment which consigned
their comrades to the gallows and the grave.
nile good lawyers seem to think this will
not be outcome of the matter, Salomon and
his clients feel otherwise. The cass will
come up for hearing at Washington City
during the October term of court.
