Albas T, Nov. 6. The Democrats of Al
bany and the Buffalo club serenaded Gov
ernor Hill last night. Governor Hill spoke
in the open air, addressing the crowd on
the mansion lawn. He said: "The victory
over which we are now rejoicing is of pre
eminent importance. The campaign of
oar opponents, from its inception to its
close, was one of brag and blaster. It
waa not characterised by sincerity. There
was no real confidence in the issues which
they sought to make. They announced
their desire to discuss slate issues ex
clusively, and proceeded to conduct their
canvass upon that basis, and now, they
atmply wish they bad not. They them
selves virtually repudiated the national
principles of their party by a cowardly re
fusal to discuss them before the people. "
t Local Issues Not Sufficient.
' After saying that in selecting state
issues to make the fight on the Repub
ean had attacked the Democracy where it
was impregnable, the governor said: "It
has demonstrated that local and munici
pal affairs do not constitute a sufficient
iue for a great state election.
Our triumph in New York will strengthen
oar cause in the nation. It will give hope
to every Democrat for the great contest
aext year. It is forerunner of a great
Democratic victory then. The united
Democracy of the Empire State send a
warm greeting to the Democracy of the
country and assure them that in we
will once luore be found in the Demo
cratic column." . The governor closed
with a warm eulogy of his successor in
COMMENTS OF SENATOR SHERMAN,
Tim Silver the Probable laene in the
Massfield, O.. Nov. 6. Senator Sher
man was seen at his borne yesterday and
asked bis views on the election. He said:
"I am induced to believe that we have
won a great victory. In many respects it
is bnt an indorsement or echo of the fight
' of 1875 npon the financial question. -President
Hayes and myself then made an is
sue for the honest dollar, and this election'
in our co n.mon wealth only shows bow
the people of this state are true to the
beat elements of all life I don't mean to say,
however, that the tariff bos not played an
Important part in the game.
Cnnrrau to Paas a Free Silver BUI
"So far as the Republican party is con
cerned this result in Ohio fixes the silver
question as one of the issues of the next
presidential contest, and decides it so far
as this state is concerned. I am convinced
that a free coinage bill will be passed by
the congress which meets in December. I
also believe that such a bill as will be
framed will be vetoed by President Harri
son. That will naturally make free ril-
ver the feature of the next presidential
ftghtt In fact it will be the leading Issue,
upon which there are vast differences of
opinion in both parties. I donbt very
much whether the Democracy in national
convention will proclaim for free coinage.
The Besnlt in New York.
"If they Bhould there will be no other
Issue of significance in the next campaigx
I am not at all disturbed as to the result
in New York. In my mind it simply in
dicates the fact that Mr. Piatt's power
lies in the great city, and that the country
districts are getting a little tired of the
intrigues of the metropolis and wanted
to make that fact manifest. I don't think
it will have any bearing whatever upon
the next presidential contest."
THINKS AGITATION USELESS.
McKinley I'nts In a Word A rains t the
Canton, O., Nov. 6. Major McKinley
aid yesterday in speaking of the Ohio
I am convinced that the judgment of ocr
citizens docs not approve the constant agita
tion of the tariff issue in the face of the fact
that it can accomplish nottiing. It mast sure
ly be apparent to all alike that the conditions
without which effective legislation is impossi
ble do not exist. The Republican senate and
the Republican president are bulwarks against
which free trade forces dash powerless, and
with no immediate pnmpect of a change in
these conditions the only result of the contin
ued agitation is to disturb business and retard
enterprise which the new law designs to encour
age. It spite of all, the new law is working its
way and from being on the defensive, as a year
ago, we are now on the aggressive.
I Meaning of the Ohio Election.
When business is already good our people
will not long tolerate movements which dis
tort) it in the face of the conditions I have
.named, and you will And the Republicans and
Democrats alike will call a halt on the men
whose stock in trade is not fair, square argu
ment, but juggling misrepresentation of the
same. Ohio has gone Republican, and I accept
the result as indicating that this state stands
by the Republican party with full faith in its
protective principle as embodied in thetarifl
law. and more than this. Ohio stands, an she

nicy Only See McKinley.
Losww, Nov. 6. English views of
American elections seem almost confined
to the n-sult in Ohio. The success of
McKinley is looked npon as a distinct
grievance in the manufacturing districts,
aud especially in Bradford and Sheffield,
which places have been disastrously af
fected by The McKinley act. The defeat
of McKinley would have been hailed with
delight in Great Britain. His election
obscures every other incident of the week
Boies Gets Through with 7,028.
Des Moises. Ia., Nov. 6. Boies is elected

it is cence led to be Republican. There
will be fifty-four Republicans, forty-four
Democrats, one People's party, and one

Republicans, twenty-five Demo
crats, one In ion Lrbor, giving a Repub

Columbus, Nov. 6. The latest figures

World's Fair Site Involved in the Claim

State Legislature Origin of the Matter
an Old Fraud.
IXDIAXAPOLIS, Nov. 6. It is expected
there will be a wild howl from Chicago
when Blie learns that Indiana may ask for
and receive a slice of land twelve miles
wide off the eastern portion of Illinois to
satisfy a claim that will probably be made
on the next lilineis legislature. Should
the claim be held valid it will include the
great $25,000,000 stock yards as well a. the
present site of the World's fair. The im
mediate basis of this claim results from
an Ohio claim filed against the state of
Indiana last winter for a twelve-milo
angular strip of land from the Michigan
border running south and terminating in
a needle point at the present Ohio boun
dary on the Ohio rivcK
The Ohio Claim Valid.
The Ohio claim is not new, but Stats
Seontor Shockney.of Union City, who has
been following the work of the civil en
gineers sent out by the government a
month ago to ascertain the true border
between Ohio and Indiana, has discovered
that Indiana's western boundary was
originally fixed by measurement from the
eastern boundary. The governmental
survey has just been completed under the
direction of Professor Mendenhall and
Colonel Sickles, who are now preparing
their report, .Senator Scbockney declares
that the claim of Ohio is valid. It is said
that an old fraud is at the bottom of
A Sn-Vf ying Party Bribed.
Inquiry into the causes leading to this
changing of the boundary line discloses
the fact that at the time Ohio was made a
state the cities of Fort Wayne, Union
City, and Richmond were trading points
Eastern fur companies had agencies iu
each place and their trade in the old In
dian territory was quite profitable. It is
claimed that the post traders bribed the
original surveying party to alter the lines
and leave a strip of Ohio, containing
1,300 square miles, in the Indiana teni
tory. This includes today about 200,OUi
citizens of this state, but Hoosiers are
not worried since the recent develop
ments, which would give them Chicago in

Effect on Reciprocity.
Washington, Nov. 6 The news, of fhe
civil troubles in Brazil was received wuh
peculiar interest at the state department ,
because of its bearing on the plan for Pan
American reciprocity. If British influence
should become paramount in the new re

War Rumors in the Coal Reclun.
Pittsbubo, Nov. 6 Another break be
tween the railroad coal operators ad
miners has occurred, and about 1,000 of
the miners have refused to return to work
because of the operators refusing to recos

several of the mines say that, while they
are willing to treat with the miners indi
vidually, they will not recognize their or
ganization. The miners say that their
organization must be recognised or an
other general strike will be ordered.
