Tbr completed official count of Cook
county shows the election of Gilbert for
sheriff hj a majority of 819 over Lawler.
Chicago's vole was: Lawler, 70.187; Gil

ever, gave Lawkr only 5.102 against
8.283 for Gilbert. The results on the re

Tying to the democracy tcvertbelesa.
Kerns, for county treasurer, has 8,406
majority, while the democrats elect two
thirds of the county commissioners, and
three out o! four congressmen. It Is a
further source of gratification to note the
handsome majorities which Cook county
gave to the state ticket, thus settling be'
yond question the fact that the county of
Cook is reliably democratic.

be otherwise the question of New York's
preference will hardly present itself in
the convention. Unless democratic
sentiment is very different in July,

Last summer the democrats of Illinois
endorsed the candidacy of the old demo
cratlc war borse, ex-Governor John M.
Palmer, for the United 8tatei senator
ship In place of Senator Farwt II. Upon
that issue the party and its candidate
went before the people of the state in an
active canvass for the legislature. Illl
nola was csrrled into the democratic
lines, and the legislature is democratic by
a small majority on joint ballot. As a
logical outcome of the situation ex-Gov.
Palmer is billed to succeed Senator Far
well. The campaign in Illinois was the more
interesting to contemplate by reason of
this unique feetura. Ex-Gov. Palmer
made au entrgrtic canvass, and awak
ened the greatest enthusiasm wherever he
spake. His eminent career placed him
strongly before the people who knew him
well, and his trenchant, logical reviews
of the political situation Infused spirit
into the campaign that it might other
wiie have lacked.
Such a canvass of a candidate for Col
ted Slates senator to secure for himself
and bis party the election of a favoring
legislature baa not often been known,
in this country. The famous canyass
and joint debate of Senator Douglas
and Abraham Lincoln in Illinois in 1858,
that resulted In there-election of Mr.
Douglas, will be most readily recalled.
In the present Instance, however, the
democratic candidate bad- no opponent
to cross swords with him. After Mr.
Palmer was in the field the republicans
could not pit Senator Farwell, and they
dared not or could not throw over the
sitting member for a new candi
date. So Mr. Palmer was forced
to go it alone, and be bad it prettv much
bis own way.
The result is a tribute to the political
wisdom and earnestness of Senator
Palmer, not less than to the good sense
of the people. Senator Palmer will be an
Incomparable substitute for Senator Far
well, and a leg slator who will make him
self strongly felt on the side of good gov
The experiment in campaigning that be
undertook has been fruitful of such ex.
cellcnt results that its adoption in other
states and under different conditions is
more than likely to be seriously consid
ered. It has. at least, the virtue of plac
ing the issue of the contest for a senator
snip squarely before the people, instead
of leaving that office to he fought over in

Omaha, Nov. ;. At daylight this
morning two columns of troops from the
department of the Platte we're well into
the Indian country. The main column
marched from Rush villa. Neb , yesterday.
It consisted of fonr companies of the Sec
ond Infantry, two of the Eighth infantry,
and three troops of the Ninth cavalry, un
der command of Maj. Butler. This col
umn will renrh Pine Ridge agency to-day.
The other column comprises three com
panies of the Kighth infantry and two
troops of the Ninth cavalry, under com
mand of CoL Smith. It marched yester
day morning from Fort Niobrara, en route
Well Healed for Fight.
Each column baa a gatling gun and a
Hotchkiss gnu in addition to small arms.
Gen. Brooks has removed his headquar
ters from Omaha to the field, and is with
the column commanded by Maj. Butler.
CoL W. V. Sheridan, who la in command
here now. said hist night that no fighting
was anticipated. A report has been re
ceived at army headquarters here denying
the rumored stampede at Rosebud. Agent
Wright there has good control of the In
diaua. in response to a message from
Gen. Miles, Governor Thayer has sent no
tice to all Nebraska dealers to refrain
from selling Indians fire arms.
A Battle Kxpoeted To-Dsf.
A special from Ruahville brings word
that as soon as troops arrived there yes
terday couriers rushed to the Pine Ridge
agency. Word was received from this
agency last night that the bad Indians
under Red Cloud and Little Wound de
clared that they would meet the troops in
battle to-day. Agent Royer was inter
viewed. He said bis Indian police were
powerless. One of them. Thunder Bear,
arrested a bad Indian last Saturday, but
was overpowered by others and the pris
oner released. Several other prisoners
were released and the rebels threatened
to burn the agency buildings.
Threatened the Agent's Lire.
He relates that on Monday he was ap
proached from behind by a bad Indian,
who drew a knife and threatened to kill
him. Rover whs unarmed and at th e In
dian's mercy. The latter for some rea
son desisted. Royer tried to get him ar
rested, but could not. The Indians at
Hue Ridge are about equally divided
among cowl and bad. Red Cloud and
Little W ound have been fermenting
trouoie ror several weeks, while Amer
ican Horse and Young-Man-Afraid-of-Hls-Horse
have tried to pacify the war
riors. Last week a big meeting wss held
about thirty miles from Pine Ridge, at
which a reputed apostle of the Messiah
Looks Very Much Like War.
He told the Indians to return to the
agency and await the coming ot the Mes
siah, who is to arrive to-day in the form
of a buffalo. He will give the signal for
the opening of the conflict which is to an
nihilate the white race. This fact causes
great fenr in the minds of old Indian
fighter. Unless there is an absolute
failure to get word from the Messiah on
the day of the arrival'nf the troops, a con
flict is certain. Maj. Butler's column
went into camp last night about ten
miles from Pine Kidge. 'i be officers are

BrFFALO. Wy., Nov. 20 Frank Guard,
the government scout, has reported that
the Sioux and Cheyenne of Dakota are
en route from their reservations to the
Big Horn mountains, this state. The
Journey is about 2U0 miles, and can be
made in three or four days. Guard is an
experienced and reliable scout, and his
report cannot be questioned. He says the
Indians do not care to make a fight in
Dakota, but will entertain the soldiers in
the Big Horn mountains, if the latter
care to follow. The Indians will have no
picnic in the Big Horn country, where
the range has been bare for a year, and
where the snows reach a depth of ten and

An ingreoiioos Touna; Redskin.
A correspondent talked with an Ariek
aree youth concerning the feelipg among
the Sioux on the reservation whom the
Arickarees have been visiting. He said:
"The Sioux are in good shape for a fight;
they have plenty of ammunition and also
have all the jer ked beef they got off the
prairies after the late prairie fire, when
several hundred cattle were burned to
death. The Arickarees are friendly with
the whites and we don't want to fight
ourselvs, but we would like to see the
Sioux go on the warpath because it would
mean larger rations for all the Indians in
the Dakota. -Choked

"I don't know whether the d:.ouz set the
recent fires that destroyed ao much prop
erty, but bidiere they did. The Sioux
say they have the white man's meat to
eat w hile fighting the white man. The
Sioux expect the Messiah every day.
There are 300 young bucks missing from
the reservation. Scouts and ludinn po
lice don't know where they are. We are
friends of the whites and not of the Sioux,
nut th! Sioux gave us forty ponies, so we
will be their friends whatever happens."

VALENTINE, Neb.. Nov. 20. Traina
coming here from Rushville are filled
with refugees from the Pine Ridge coun
try. Agent R-yer, of the Pine Ridge res
ervation, has brought his family to Rush
ville, and they are now stopping at the
Commercial house. Royer himself was
forced to abandon bis post, owing to the
threats of the Sioux. A courier who ar
rived at Rushville yesterday tells story
of a battle between two factions of the
Sioux, in which sixty men were killed
and wounded. This story was passed
along the Kikhorn val'ey and is probably
responsible for the wild scramble ot the
settlers to reach places of safety.
Squaw Men Seeking Safety.
PlEHKE, S. D , Nov. 20 Quite a number
of ranchmen, balf-bree.ls, and squaw men
from the country west are this city,
brought here, it is alleged, by the serious
condition now existing among the Sioux
Indian fanatics over their Christ craze.
Some of these men have lived among the
Indians ail tbeir lives, but have now been
rejected, and they deem it unsafe to re
main longer at the mercy of the red skins.
Perfect security is felt at Pierre and in all
the country east of the Missouri, and it is
the general opinion that the fanatical
erase will die down when cold weather
comes sufficient to drive th Indians in
from tbeir out-door orgies.

BRLFOUR ON THE STUMP.
Th Tory Statesman Pays His Respects
to Gladstone nnd Others.
Ix don. Nov. au. Balfour addressed a
large itnd enthusiastic audience at South
port lt.$t night. He stated that since he
return. si from Ireland it had been bis
painful duty to plough through the Mid
lothiau rhetorical campaign. He had
fonnd the Milchelstown procession and
the otl er ancient figures somewhat more
decrep t and wrinkled, but still recognis
able as the old fnm il lar shapes, doing d uty
as campaign bugb.-ars. Coining to Glad
stone's "few novelties," be regretted to find
the Liberal leader even more careless
about nccuracy of statement than be was
two years ago. He characterized Glad
stone's reference to tbe conduct of the po
lioe, tbs cultivation of land, and the sys
tem of landlordism in Ireland as amaz
"For the American Market."
Whils Gladstone was urging on his
wild career of improvisation here, said
Balfou -, Dillon and O'Brien were pursu
ing an) less wild career of misstatement
in America. O'Brien had declared that
5. 000 persons had been imprisoned under
the reg me of coercion, and that a man
had bet u jailed for simply touching his
hat to I im. These stories, concocted ex
pressly for the American market, were a
species of manufacture not excluded by
tbe Mclvinlry bill. Their purpose was to
extract dollars from credulous American
audiences. The tight in a yacht was
needles.' ly melo-dramatic The fugitives
might fcave sailed openly and in comfort,
because the crown is powerlessto arrest
a man ou bail until he bas broken his
bond by not appearing in court.
Means Well for Ireland.
After referring to the attacks mad
npon hi n by Gladstone. Morley and oth
ers, be raid: "I have acted with the single
minded view of benefitting not only the
empire, but tbe population before which
I am habitually held up as an object of
coniem) t and execration. Irish distress
does not present itself to Irish politicians
as affonitng an occasion on which they
might impartially consider the best meth
od of dealing with the condition of tbe
people, l.at as a new means of setting
class against class and a new occasion for
the issuiogof a no-rent manifesto. Any
man wh i suggests tbat tbe difficulty to b
dealt with is tbe rent difficulty shows
either ignorance or bad faith. If every
shilling of rent in th congested districts
were abolished tbe problem would not be
th less menacing."

a very large support among the non-conformists
if it should continue to affiliate
with a politician wbo openly sets tbe U ws
of God and man at defiance.
Notwii hstaudl"g such opinions as the
above it now seems certain that Parnell
will be rontinuedas leader of the Irish
party. 3 he severest blow struck at Par
nell by bis former supporters is tbe
declarati m at Tbe Pall Mall GaxHte tba t
be must resign. It is also the opiuion ot
the clergy in general that his resignation
Is necessary. On tbe other hand, David
Sheehy, M. P., says th Irish will stand
by Parnell to a man.

Has Another Go at Bis Critic.
Wasiukoto City, Nov. 93. The
strength shown by the Farmers' Alli
ance in the recent election and the un
doubted fact that its influence is growiug
in many directions, forms an interesting
snhject of discnshi-in here, especially in
view of the fact that it will have in tbe
next congress a representation variously
estimsted at from twenty to forty. Tbey
will not be enough to be able to dictate
the policy of tbe bouse, as they had hoped
to do, because of the large Democratic
majority, but tbeir influence will proba
bly l considerable.
They Want Mora Money.
It is not expected that their sub-treasury
scheme will ever be put into effect,
nor thai the government control of cor
potations will be adopted, but what ia
looked forward to as possible ia a very
great inflation of tbeenrrency in compli
ance with the farmers' demands. The
cry is for more money, and it seems that
something must be done to satisfy the
call. Since it is tbe Republican organisa
tion which is most seriously threatened
by tbe Alliance, its membership in tbe
south being entirely within tbe Demo
cratic party, it is possible that the Repub
lican leaders may at tbe coming session
attempt something looking to this end.
la the Fifty-Second Congress.
But during the Fifty-second congress,
where the Alliance will have actual rep
resentation, ita influence will probably be
more strongly felt. Representative Out h
waite, speaking on the subject yesterday,
said that ba thought the Alliance move
ment would have an important influence
npon politics In the future. He thought
the Republican party would be the chief
sufferer by the move meat, but tbat the
interests of the whole country were in
volve.! in tbe matter. He expressed tbe
opinion tbat th Alliance would not press
tbe sub-treasury scheme, but would be
satisfied if tbey could secure tariff re
form and a larger circulation.
leinoert!e Programme ftnaWested.
What the Farmers' Allinnce wanted,
be said, w as au enlargement of the circu
lating medium sufficient to meet th de
mands of trade aud business. He thought
it not unlikely that tbe conditions might
be such, the value ot silver being In
creased, that tbe Democrat could adopt
tbe free coinage of silver during the Fifty-second
congress. They would, he
thought, make a reduction and equalisa
tion of the tariff by takng npone item at a
time and passing it through the bouse
and then through th senate with tbe as
sistance of certain Republicans.
A Possible Combination.
"The Farmers' Alliance," ba said, "is
advancing from the west into the north
and east, and some of the least digested
and least considered features of the move
ment are being toned down, all now
agreeing to principles which some would
not advance. I bave been watching tbe
movement with considerable Interest. I
can not discover tbat there bas been any
combination formed Is-taeen tbe Alli
ance end the labor parties, though sncb a
union has leen announced. If tbe wage
workers of the cities should join with the
Alliance, I believe tbe Allisnos would

Washington- Citt, Nov. 30. Superin
tendent of Census I"orter baa received
authoritative information tbat the Louis
iana state census (a compilation of which
bas just been completed by that state)
taken immediately before the federal
enumeration in June, shows a population
of 1,115.917. as against 1, lln.l'JS by the
United States census, a variance of but
911, and tbat in favor of tbe national cen
sus. Mr. Porter aai.l, in talking of tbe
matter, that this is a verification from
the south of th acenracy of tbe federal
ennmeration; lh.it it proves how unfound
ed the charges of nnfairiiets are against
the census office in the enumeration of
tbe southern states.
Evidence from Other Mates.

peach thescc'iracy of tbe census of Omaha,
Mr. Porter said tbat tba vote cast at
Omaha in the recent election, compared
with that cast in Kansas City, Minneapo
