The election of Aid. J. E. Larkin to
the council from the Seventh ward is re
garded as a foregone conclusion by repub
licans as well as democrats. The Seventh

proven bis abilitv and bis regard for his
constituents regardless of parlies.

Koehler and Haas both snoered at any
effort to defeat them in the nomination

. New York, April 4. Abraham Lincoln
haa revisited the earth at White Plains at
the home of Mr Xettie Colbura-May
nard, the once famous medium. ; Mrs.
Maynard is now the wife of the postma-
tor of that town and lias been confined to
her bed for nearly ten j ears, a helpless in
valid. For most of this time she has leen
engaged in dictating to an amanuensis a
book containing an account of bet seances
in Washington City with Lincoln, -Seward,
Stanton, and Chase during the most
critical period of the nation's history.
Lincoln Influenced by Spirits.
"It is well known among those who knew
Lincoln at all intimately," said a Spirit
ualist who was present at yesterday's
seance, "that tbe emancipation proclama
tion was issued by direction of a spirit said
to have been that of Webster speaking
through Nettie Colburn, as she was then
known. For two years, from 1S63 to 1805,
Mrs. Maynard was engaged exclusively by
President Lincoln, and made her home
in the White House, where stie gave the
president seances almost d.tily. Careful
notes were kept of all these important
conimuuicat tu, and the book was com
pleted and put into the hands of Dr. S. B.
Brittan for publication about two years
Spooks Assist In Writing m Book.
"He died soou afterward and the maai
script was lost.. Mrs. Maynard set to
work to rewrite tbe history, having, as
she says, been assured that ahe would be
atsisted by her spirit friends and kept
alive until the task was finished." To
verify certain dates and other details Mrs.
Maynard has during the progress of. the
work, so her Spiritualistic friends say,
consulted the spirit of Lincoln and other
spirits. During the last two years while
she has been lying in precisely tbe
s ime position on her bed, her hands- and
teet twisted terribly by rheumatism, she
has been further favored by tbe visits of
M. E. William, of this city.
Twenty-Three tihohtly Visitors.
Through his ruediumship the shades of
the invalid's departeo. frieiMfV visited hir
in visible auC tangible shape, bringing hi r
s:rt.nth and counsel. The last of these
seances was held yesterday iu the sick
chamber of the vosy house in White
Plains. The "cabinet" consisted of an
impromptu arrangement of curtains of
sott black woolen stuff drawn across one
corner of the room. From this -emerged
no less than twenty-tbree ghoats. Con
gressman Somes, of Maine, an-intimate
friend pt Lincoln, came ,rot and rwalked
up-to MpsilMAy mutt's BeajUe?t. &rn her
tue precise dates of some events reconnt
ei in the latter part of ber book,- which
ahe bad been trying for weeks past to re
member. Shade of Lincoln, See This!
The shade of Lincoln, tall, stern, dark,
and sad-looking appeared for a few mo
menta, gave Mrs. May nard assurances as
to some details in her story and promised
to control her and communicate more
fully and particularly as to these events
later. Gen. Morgan Christly, who com
manded the Thirtieth New York regi
ment, appeared in his brigadier's uniform
and was recognized by Mrs. Maynard and
her sister, Mr Colburn.
Reminded Them of a Joke.
He reminded them of a certain evening
in Washington City twenty years ag.-
and of a practical joke that ocenrred
which gave him the nickname of "Duck
Legs." The other spirits appeared in quick
succession.- At tbe close of the seance the
invalid, for whom it was chiefly given,
said she had been greatly comforted and
strengthened. With the missing dates
.supplied by the accommodating shade of
the martyr president, she will now speed
ily complete ber book.
GOV. HILLS' LATE KEYNOTE.
Comments Thereon by Politicians at the
CHICAGO, April 4. The Herald's Wash
ington City dispatch has the following:
"Governor Hill's letter against free trade
attracted some Attention here. Its chief
importance, as viewed among the poli
ticians of the national capital, is as cor
roborative of the theory that the old pro
tectionist crowd in the Democratic party
is preparing to take tbe field. It is under
stood here that the first campaign to be
made by this element is for control of the
next house of representatives.
Will Stand by Crlsn for Speaker.
"Senator Gorman, Governor Hill, Taw
many Hall, and all tbe anti-Cleveland
protection element are said to be out for
Crisp for speaker. . They will regard it as
a great victory for their wing of the party
if they can defeat Mills, who, with charac
teristic frankness, talks free trade on the
stump. Crisp, while counted a tariff re
former, is a very moderate one, and really
belongs to the protection school."
Democratic Banquet at Milwaukee.
Milwaukee, Wis., April 4. The Ju
neau Democratic club gave a banquet at
