Jacksonville, tin., Oct. 3. By the K-n-ernl
elw-tion law passed in isst, stt and
county elections in Horid are separated
from national and congressional elections.
This is the first year that the separation
clause of the new statute became operative.
Tomorrow Florida elects a governor, secre
tary of state, one justice of the supreme
court, attorney general, comptroller, treas
urer, superintendent of public instruction,
and a commisMon of agriculture; all the
forty-five counties chooses members of the
lower house of the lefjislature and half the
senatorial district (there are 32 in all)
choose state senators; all the counties
choose their county officers, and both the
state and the county officers chosen serve
for four years; the representatives are
chosen for two years only, the sessions of
the legislature being biennial.
Democrats Agadrikt the Populists.
There are two full state tickets in the
fiicld those of the Democrats and of the
People's party. The former is headed by
Henry L. Mitchell for governor, the latter
by Alonzo P. Baskin. The Prohibitioonists
have a candidate for governor X. J. Haw
ley, of Alachua county but this "party is
not likely poll over .VX) votes in the entire
Mate. The Republicans made no nomina
tions this year either of natinal electors,
congressmen, state or county officers the
reason for this, as alleged, being the unfair
ness of the present election laws passed by
a Democratic legislature. An agreement is
aid to have been entered into by the terms
ef which the Republican votes are to be
thrown for the People's party candidate.
Republicans Didn't Qualify.
But as a general thing Republicans have
not qualified for the election of Oct. 4 by
registering and paying their poll taxes. It
is very difficult therefore to estimate the
voting strength of the People's party. The
Republicans polled 3G.4S5 votes in 1SS8
when they were organized, the Democrats
polling 40,2.-5. In 1W4 when Republicans
and Independents fused the vote was
Democratic 32,07; Fusion, 27,845. Demo
crats give the Populists about 16,000 vote
DOWN IN GEORGIA STATE.
Republican Leaders Advise Acting with
ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 3. The state cam
paign has closed. The election is Wednes
day next. The Republicans have no can
didate for governor and none for the legis
lature. The contest is between the Demo
crats and the third party. The new party
has candidates for everything from gover
nor to coroner. An interesting factor in
the election, however, will be the Republi
can vote. The Republican leaders havo
sent word all over the state advising the'r
party friends everywhere to support the
Populist candidates. If they do this there
will be some interest in election returns.
The difficulty about the scheme is that the
negro is kicking. The majority will doubt
less vote as advised, but iwany will not Voe
at all and others, it is claimed, will vote
the Democratic ticket.
Ciovernor Nort hen's Predictions.
Governor Xorthen is not in any fear,
lie says: "I feel no apprehension about the
result of our elect ion next Wednesday. I
shall be elected by ln-tween 25,000 and 40,000
majority. The legislature will also be over
whelmingly Democratic. I do not believe
the third pariy will elect forty members.
While the third party people have made
claims to everything, I do not believe they
will carry thirty out out of the 137 counties
of the state,"
Guyandotte Saturday. lne speaker was
Miss Servia X. Simpson, the only woruf.n
editor in West Virginia, who addressed a
large crowd on the political issues from a
Republican standpoint. Her father, who
is a Democrat, was also billed to speak at
the same place the same niirht, and the
j Republicans were anxious for a joint de
bate between father and daughter, but the
former failed to put in an ap;.-:iuiince.

CLEVELAND MAKES DENIALS.
Populist Orators Have Bmd Maligning
Him, He Say.
ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 8. Ex-President
Cleveland has written to Clark Howell, of
The Constitution, complaining of the
falsehoods circulated by People's party ora
tors in Georgia and other southern states.
Representative Wilson, who made famous
Judge Cobb's "Where was I at," is quoted
as "saying in a public speech that Mrs.
Cleveland refused to attend the unveiling
of the statue of Roliert E. Lee, because she
feared Bhe would there meet Miss Winnie
Davis. This is entirely a new fabrication.
A number of the others have to do, how
ever, with alleged refusals of my wife or
myself to be introduced to Miss Davis, etc."
Explains About Fred Douglass. -
Mr. Cleveland declares them all false.and
adds: "Another prolific source of false
hoods of the stupidest description is in re
gard to my treatment of Frederick Doug
lass while I was president and he was reg
ister of deeds in Washington. Not
one single statement wuich I have seen of
the kind above referred to has any truth
In it whatever, except this, that when
Frederick Douglass was in public office in
the city of Washington I, as president of
the United States, extended to him the
same courtesies, so far as public. receptions
and matters of that kind are concerned,
which were extended to other officials of
the same grade. This of course was his
due as a matter of official decency and eti
quette, and I should have been ashamed to
treat him otherwise."

Paris, Oct. 3.--Joeph Erneste Reuan
died yesterday. Joseph Erneste Renan,
philosopher and historian, was, born at
Treguier Cotes-Du-Xord on Feb. 27, 1823.
His parents wished him to enter the priest
hood and at an early age he was sent Ut
JOSEPH KRNSaT BEN AN.
Paris to obtain his preparation. At the
close of his classical studies he was placed
in the seminary of St. Sulticete to complete
his theological course. While there he
showed remarkable aptitude in the study
of philosophy and of the Hebrew, Arabic
and Syriac languages.
Too Independent for m Priest.
He bad already developed, however, too
much independence of thought to qualify
for the priesthood and therefore he quitted
the seminary to follow the bent of his own
mind. In 1M7 he won the Volney prize for
a work upon the Semitic language. In ISM
he was attached to the deitrtment of manu
script in the Xational library, and five
years later was elected a member of tl;e
Academie des Inscriptions in the place of
M. Augnstin Thierry. In l-SOO he went on
amission to Syria and three years later pub
lished his "Life of Jesus."
M. lienan became a member of the French
academy on June 13, 1S7S.
Koine of His ot.-lle Works.
Renan's wife was the daughter of Henri
SchetTer, the painter. Renait wrote vol
uminously. Among hi works are stuiiu-s
in religious histories, the -15ook of Job,"
"Philosophical Dialogues and Fragments,"
"Spinoza," "History of the Origin of Chris
tianity" (begun in 1S3 and completed in
seven volumes in lS, the "Evangelists,"
the .A postles" "and "Marcus Aurei.-ts."
Of Lis great history of "Israel Before the
Birth of Christ" but two volumes were published.
CONSECRATED TO SCIENCE.
He Worked While Sick and SnfTcriniz
M. Renan's official position was adminis
trator of the College de France,, where he
was only prufesMir. It was the frowning
of a career the inost simple, worthy, and
disinterested; consecrated entirely to
science, the sole and unique js-ion of his
life. When age. and glory covered him,
when he might have the right of repose,
not for a moment did he dream of it.
When the sickness and suffering which
for a great part of last winter fixed him to
his chair gave him some respite he put
some last touches to his "History of the
People of Israel," or wrote some of the
chirming ptges, a little vague perhaps,
a littie nebulous, but full of grace ami
poctr3', which he entitled "Stray Ix-aves,"
and which recall his "Recollections of
Didn't Like to Ite Contradicted.
The great man was as dogmatic as ever
Macauley was. He could not ls-ar to le in
terrupted when talking, and it went Hard
with him to patiently endure a contradic
tion. When he received guests at his
weekly gatherings he held forth to them by
the half hour. He was fond of standing
before the grate, end from that position he
would lay down the law upon anything
and everything. For ability to spe&k
learnedly and eloquently ujion any subject
he could best be compared with Mr. Glad
stone. M. Renan, when he found death
inevitable, expressed a wish that he might
have a national funeral, and that his body
might be interred in the Pantheon.
Cause of His Death.
The ailment which resulted in M.
Renan's death was contracted Tuesday
hist. On that day he went driving and
caught a severe cold, which speedily devel
oied into congestion of the lungs. He was
slightly better Saturday morning, and his
friends took hope that he would rally and
recover from the disease with which he
had been prostrated. They were
doomed to deep disappointment, how
ever, as toward - evening his legs and
stomach began to swell, and he suffered
great agony. His condition necessitated a
painful operation which had the effect of
weakening the patient's vitality. After
the operation had been performed M. Ren
an fell into a state of heavy somnolence
from which he never rallied. He continued
to grow' weaker and weaker, and died at
6:80 o'clock yesterday morning.
