Could anything be more disgraceful
than the manner in which Reed was elected
in Maine? Open buying of votes in the
very room in which the ballots were
deposited did not seem to shock in the
least the floe sensibilities of down east
republicans. Reed was there to win.
The ends justified the means.
TnE Union says there were "no tricks,
no money" nsed in the election of Reed.
Heaven forbid that such base means
should be used in the election of this
great, pure man. Reed himself would de
spise a trick; his friends would despise
the usa of money. Immaculate souls I
Like Caesar's wife, they are beyond sti8-
nicion. Their hands are clean; their
hearts likewise. It was a spontaneous
offering to the belted knight.
TnE beginning of a new crop of cor
respondents has begun to show itself in
the Union. This time it is a "prominent
business man" who writes a note to that
paper, and as it praises Mr. Oest and op
poses Mr Cable, it finds a ready place
along with those other worthy corres
pondents who have recently dropped into
"innocuous desuetude." This "business
map", however, forgot to sign his name
to what hahad to say which is clearly
not an evidence of his great business
It is said there were "telling speeches'
made for Reed in Maine by McKinley,
Lodge, Mason, Henderson and others.
The speeches may have been "telling,'1
but they were not telling the truth. That
they suppressed as carefully as they
could. Imagine McKiuley telling the
people of Maine how that state was ben
efitted by protection a state that is so
rich in natural products, and yet so poor
in wealth and development. Imagine
Lodge telling of the beauties of his little
bill by which the rights of the people can
be so easily and so ruthlessly trampled
upon. Imagine Mason Billy Mason
telling the crowds bis salacious anecdotes
and urging them on to savj the party.
Imagine all of these valiant gentlemen
who rushed to the aid of the waning for
tunes of the czxr, and then think what a
spontaneous rising it was!
Of course the Union is carried to the
seventh heaven on account of the election
of Tom Reed in Maine. In fact, its ex
' ultation is so great that one would be
justified in reasoning that it entertained
before the election a grave doubt as to his
success. But it was hardly to be ex
pected that Reed could, be defeated, tak
ing everything into consideration in a re
publican state like Maine. But why did
so many oily-loogued fellows leave their
congressional duties in Washington for
the purpose of helping out the gentleman
at his own home if no fear was expressed
regarding his success? The fact is Mr
Reed himself was in doubt not regard
ing his election, perhaps, but as to the
extent of his majority. lie knew the
feeling in the country. He knew his own
deserts and although be did not receive
tbem be is in no way less worthy. In gain'
ing his point everybody was corrupted
who was not proof against it. The use
of money was unlimited; the use of every
means, irrespective of honor, was adopt
ed. The decent republicans, no matter
how much they despised Reed and his
methods, gave him their vote because the
party itself stood in need of some exter
ior recognition. It was a desperate case,
but Ri'ed pulled through with a good ma
" jority. He knew the detestation in which
be was held and openly said that if be
could obtain a thousand majority he
would be satisfied, lie knew himself
better than the voters, but the republican
voters are slow to learn when it comes to
a matter of national advantage.
DOUBLE MURDER IN OHIO.

IIamh.svii.i.k, O., Sept. 10 A terribla
triixedy occurred here Monday evening
duriiiK tlie trial of the cine of Grorfre

Enquire VanilaniHiit. A Mr. .Hiler died
some months bum, leaving a will in which
he levis-(l most of his property to two of
his aona and two daughter-i, to the exclu
sion of other children. There "bun bnen
talk of contesting the will, and much bit
terness haa been manifested. The case on
trial was one for damages, under an al
leged breach of contract between Joseph
Hiler and Uarngrover, who was one of the
sons-iu law of Mr. Hiler. During the trial
constable I. N.Allen, another son-in-law,
stepped . to the door, when a ptatol shot
was heard. Allen came staggering into
the room and fell acroaa a chair, exclaim
ing: "John Hiler did it."

Before the terrorized spectators could
realize what had happened the murderer
was seen Htaudlng in the middle of the
crowded court room and fired a second
shot, which took effect in the right breast
of George Hurngrover, pasHing entirely
through his body. The excitement was
indescribable, the court room being
crowded with men and women. As Hiler
rushed from the courtroom into the dark
ness be was heard to remark: "I have
loads for two moro men." It is under
stood that he meant by the remark John
Hiler, Jr., cousin to the murderer, aud

marized Testimony In the Kan in Case
Senator Dixon's Amusement Official
Wasiiixgton ClTT, Sept. )0. When the
senate adjourned yesterday the only ques
tion remaining on the .tariff bill was,
"Shall the bill pass?" During the day the
several committee amendments includ
ing the one lowering the sugar standard
to be admitted free of duty to No. 13 from
No. 10 upon which a separate vote had
been demanded, were all agreed to, and
two of the most important amendments
offered during the whole debate -were
adopted. The vote on the passage could
have been taken, but that Aldrioft moved
an adjournment when the question was
stated. It will probably be taken to-day
between 5 and 6 o'clock.
The Reciprocity Amendment.
One of the important amendments re
ferred to above was that providing under
certain circumstances for reciprocity with
South American states and Cuba. It gives
the president authority on and after July
I, 185(1, to suspend by proclamation the
free introduction of sugar, molasses, cof
fee, tea and hides into the United States
from states which impose a duty or other
exaction on articles imported into those
states from the United States, during
which suspension the duty on sugars
from said country shall range from 0.7
cent per pound to 2 cents, according to
grade, and 4 cents per gallon for molasses,
etc.; coffee, 3 cents per pound; tea, 10
cents, and hides, iv ceuts. The suspen
sion shall continue as long as the presi
dent thinks just.
The other amendment provides for a
permanent customs commission of five
persons to investigate the tariff question.
The duties of the commission are to be:
To examine into aud ascertain the aver
age price of commodities imported into
the United States, both at wholesale aud
retail in the United States, and both in
the United States and in the foreign
places of production, sale or shipment, for
the period of twelve months preceding,
and twelve months following any change
in the rate of , customs duties imposed
upon such commodities; aud this inquiry
shall be carried back for a period of
twenty-five years and more, if deemed ad
visable by such commission, and shall
extend to all facts relating to demand
and supply, domestic and foreign, which
tend to influence the prices of such com
modities, foreign and domestic, and to aid
in determining the true effect of the im
port duty, or of the change therein, in
the several cases, upon domestic and for
eign prices, and upon productions of the
same or other commodities, upon reveuue,
upon immigration, upon profits of capi

Testimony as to the Kule That Lemon
Advocated Smyser and Lewis.
Washington Citt, Sept. 10. Deputy
Commissioner Lincoln, of the pension
office, was the first witness examined yes
terday by the committee investigating the
charges against Gen. Kauru. Concerning
the request of Attorney Lemon that at
torneys be allowed the placing on the
completed files of cases which they certi
fied were completed, Lincoln said the
matter had been referred to him and he
had decided against it on the ground that
the rule had obtained under Tanner's ad
ministration aud had not worked well be
cause the attorneys had certified incom
plete cases as completed to the extent of
about Ds per cent, of the whole number
Effect of the Rule.
This opinion had been read to Lemon in
the presence of the commissioner, who
had sustained it. The effect of the new
order was not to give any Washington
City attorney an advantage over any
other attorney doing business here, but a
slight advantage over attorneys whose
ujnoes were einewuere, anu over claimants
woo had no attorneys. However, he aaid,
the practical working of the rule, after
ltaum had reconsidered bis opinion, was
to expedite business, and to give greater
satisfaction to the country. Witness
owned no refrigerator stock, nor bad ever
been offered any.
A Question of Veracity.
Some days ago Representative Lewis, of
the committee, said that Representative
Smyser had told him that lie didn't own
a cent of stock In the refrigerator com
pany, hut held it in his name for others.
As this was in direct contradiction to
Hmyser's testimony before the committee
the latter was recalled and aald that In
the conversation referred to he bad told
Lewis exactly what he told the commit
tee, that he did not own "all" the stock
which was in his name. Lewis took the
stand aud said that he "understood"
Smyser to say he did not own any.
The Refrigerator Again.
Cooper cnlled H. Hasabach, mechanical
engineer, and began to try to prove by
him that the refrigerator waa no account
in fact, a worthless fraud. Kaum ob
jected to this line of testimony, saying
that it was not included in the powers of
the committee. Cooper. in.slsteL that it

PORTER ON THE CIVIL SERVICE.
Be Gives the House Committee Bis Views
of the Matte
Washisgtos Citt, Sept :0. The house
committee on reform in the civil service,
which has been investigating the general
workings of the civil service system for
some time past, continued its investiga
tion yesterday by examining Superinten
dent of Census Porter. Mr. Porter's tes
timony was entirely favbrab e to the merit
system. He said that men who passed the
best examination made th 1 best clerks,
and attributed the good work of the cen
sus bureau this year partly to the better
class of men obtained by t he e xam inations.
The persons employed in tht census office
had been examined by a commissioner ap
pointed from the bureau instead of by the
regular civil service commissioners, for
several reasons, one being tt at If the reg
ular commission examined ap-pucants it
would have brought many people here
from all over the country, who would
have been left stranded wi en they had
been employed a frV months.
Some Changes He Would Make.
He promoted employes in his office en
tirely on t he merit system. I le advocated
a change in the present plan of civil serv
ice appointment, first, he would have
eacn department examine applicants for
employment therein, instead of a general
civil service commission loing that
duty; second, he would have appoint
ments made for a term of years, with
preference for reappointment if the
appointee proved efficient This latter
would enable the departments to weed
out aged and useless person who were
kept entirely out of sympa'hy. Under
any rule the honest enforcement of a
civil service law would depend largely
upon the honesty of subordinate officials.
SENATOR DIXON'S AMUS EMENT.
He Illustrates a Tariff Compilation with
Senate Sketches. '
Washington Citt, Sept 10. Senator
Dixon of Rhode Island has oct npied him
self in an interesting manner during the
long discussion of the tariff bill. With
the bound compilation of the finance com
mittee before him and pencil or pen in

riously at work for many dayn. Monday
he neglected to put the book in his drawer
when the senate adjourned. Tuesday

to close the book with a shudder. It was

Massachusetts would not consider at all

discoveries, which might be eml arrassing

RIOTING AT SOUTHAMPTON.
Strikers Try to Kira the Town and Troop
Are Call-d I'pon.
Lonpon, Sept. 10. Owing to the threat
ening condition of affairs at Southamp
ton, where an ugly feeling exists between
the striking dock men and the non-unionist
workmen, who seek to take their
places, a detachment of troops was sent
down from Ijondon to that port yester
day. The Troops Find Work to Do.
The troops arrived Tt Southampton last
evening and found the strikers haying
everything their own way, and the au
thorities powerless. The soldiers cleared
the railway tracks at once. Then
the strikers attempted to break through
the line of soldiers, driving cab horses in
to them, but the troops charged with
bayonets and dispersed the mischief
makers. A little later the crowd of strik
ers and idlers, having largely increased
in numbers, attacked the military with
stones. JSeveral of the soldiers were in
jured, two quite badly, and a lieutenant
had the bridge of his nose broken.
DeAanre of tha Mayor.
The mayor appeared on the scene and
read the riot act, wherenpon a section of
the rioters proceeded to the mayor's place
of business and attacked the building,
breaking the windows with stones and
doing other damage. Meanwhile ball
ammunition of twenty rounds was served
out to the soldiers, and the crowd having
iguored a final order to disperse, the com
mander ordered a charge with fixed bay
onets. Many of the rioters were wounded
by the bayonets, and a number of the
fcoldiers were badly hurt by the stones aud
other missiles flung by the crowd before
the street was cleared.

Statae of the Old ComMonder Build
ing on the "Installment Plan."
New York, Sept. 10. The exdcutiy
committee of the Grant Monument asso
ciation decided yesterday that the plan
for the monument submitted by Archi
tect John H. Duncan, of 237 Broadway,
was the best of the five plans they had to
consider, and they formally recommended
its acceptance by the association, subject
to whatever change or modification the
committee or the architect might agree
on. The five designs, which bad been
turned face to the wall to prevent any one
from seeing them, were turned around,
and each was examined, while Secretary
Greener read the author's description of
it. Then there was a discussion over the
merits of each. This lasted nearly an
hour and by that time the committee was
unanimous in its opinion that the Dun
can design was the best.
The Design Which Was Selected.
The Duncan design provides for a pile
of granite or marble 100 feet square and
rising 100 feet, whether as a cube or as a
truncated pyramid could ' not be ascer
tained. On top of it will be a dome sev
enty feet high. The ornamentation will
be simple ami the architecture severely
doric. The dome will lie surmount ed by
sculptured figures, the nature of which
will be determined by the committ ee, the
sculptor, and the architect later on. In
the design there are the statues of four of
the generals who were on Grant's staff.
Thirty feet bi-low the top of the dome
there will be a row of windows. There
will ba four entrances at the base. The
main entrance will be a gateless portico,
an addition to the general design.
A Splendid Memorial Hall.
In front of this entrance there will be a
colossal equestrian statue of Gen. Grant.
The crypt will be eighty-five feet by
seventy-five. oieu to the top of the dome.
One hundred and thirty feet from the base
there will lie an immense gallery, where
visitors may go. The row of windows
