Late Report of Hla Condition.
LiOXDOx, Oct. 5. Dr. Dabba, who is In
SDiistant attendance upon Ixird Tennyson
at Aldworth,- near Ilazelmere, told the cor
respondent of the International Telegraph
company at 11:30 o'clock last night that his
patient's condition was very grave.
The bulletin issued at 9 o'clock said:
"Lord Tennyson's condition is still critical,

freaker." Monday night Tennyson slept
well and the early morning bulletin stated
that his symptoms were more encouraging.
At noon, however, he was worse. "His
weakness had increased rapidly since 10
o'clock and he was reported to be sinking.
At 3 o'clock the rumor was that he was
sinking rapidly aud might not last the
Account of the Poet's Illness.
Tennyson's illness ln-gaii on Friday. He
suffered from gout for several years, but
the disease had not become acute until re
cently. The rapid development of influenza
early in the week brought him to his bed
on Friday. He was strongly opposed to
yielding to the malady, ns the special train,
which for years has conveyed him from
Ilazelmere to the shore opposite his winter
home on the Isle of Wight, had already
been ordered. He begged hard to be al
lowed to go, but Sir Andrew Clarke and
Dr. Dabls told him that his journey could
w made only at t he peril of his life. In
deference to this warning, as well as to the
wishes of his invalid wife, Tennyson re
luctantly consented to remain at Hazel
mere. Lives In Great Srrlnkion.
Visitors go constantly throughout the
day to Hazelmere to read the bulletins as
to Tennyson's condition. These bulletins
are very meager, owing to Tennyson's re
quest on Saturday when inquiries began
to multiply, that as little publicity as pos
sible be given to the progress of the dis
ease. Hallam Tennyson delivers the bul
letins to the reporters, hut refuses to add
to the scant information which they con
tain. The people of Aldworth know al
most nothing of Tennyson's condition, or,
in fact, alxnit the Tennysons in any way.
AMworth is three miles from the village,
and one mile from the nearest house. Not
only the poet, but also his wife and son are
complete strangers to the people there
abouts. Many Telegrams of Sympathy.
Hundreds of telegrams of inquiry and
sympathy are lieing received from friends
and admirers of the poet. Queen Victoria,
Gladstone, the Earl of Koseljerry, Emperor
William and dozens of other persons of
world-wide reputation are sending messages
and receiving news as to his condition.
The queen receives reports three times
daily. The messages are so numerous,
however, that most of the inquirers get
answers only through the newspapers, as
there is nobody at Aldworth to return in
Death Almost Certain.
The only persons at the bedside of the
patient are the physicians, who pass prac
tically the whole day and night in the
house; Lady Tennyson, who is a chronic
invalid; Hallam Tennyson and his family.
It seems highly improbable that Lord Ten
nyson will recover or even last more than
two or three days, although his physicians
refuse to speak as to the result of his ill
ness. The latest bulletin said: ''Lord Ten
nyson's condition is extremely critical.
He is much weaker and takes nourishment
COUNTY SEAT WAR IS OVER..
All the County Kecords Taken Hack to
CrLBEliTSON, Neb., Oct 5. The county
seat war ended very suddenly about day
light yesterday morning. Adjutant Gen
eral Vifquain in two hours' time had four
companies of militia ready to move. He
then liourded the train and, arriving at
Cullert.son at 2 o'clock yesterday morning,
went directly to Sheriff IL A. Dennis'
house, routed him out of led, and together
they went to the court house, where but
six men were on guaid. The general in
formed the ofUecr that he must exhaust all
his resources before the po wer of the state
could be called.
Sent lllui furThose Books.
Vifquain then ordered the shcrilf to go to
Trenton, return wit h the stolen records and
stop fooling, all of which was obeyed with
alacrity. Shortly after daylight a wagon
load of records was returned and the war
was over, so far as force is concerned. The
Hitchcock county seat trouble began six
years ago, an . election having been held
Nov. 16, 1886, rwhich resulted in a victory
for Culbertson, the vote standing three to
one.' Two years later Trenton attempted
bo call a second election, but failed. The
E resent trouble is a revival of the effort to
ave the seat removed to Trenton.
The Real Kstate Men of the Country In
BUFFALO, Oct. 5. Governor Flower yes
terday welcomed in behalf of the state the
second congress of the National Real Estate
association, to attend the sessions of which

President Weill in his annual address rec
ommended the passage by the states of
uniform laws bearing on real estate. He
recommended further that a special com
mittee be appointed whose duty it shall
be to make a thorough investigation of the
laws of the different states relating to the
subject, and to formulate such measures
as in their judgment could be adopted to
advantage in every state and territory of
the Union. He also urged the association
