and caused annoyance tothe grieved house-
hold. The actual facts are that up to about
midnight Mrs. Harrison was easier and
better, rather than worse.
Like the Other Anxious Nights.
At 10 o'clock last, evening, after his visit
to Mrs. Harrison, lr Gardner said that
her condition was sightly improved, so
much so that the anyiety occasioned by the
tiatient's condition yesterday, had to some
extent, been dissipated. There had been no
reason to change this favorable informal
bulletin at a late hour when further in
quiries were made, and there seemed to be
every reason to expect that the night would
pass as so many nights have passed, in
watchfulness and anxiety but without any
sudden change one way or the other.

Xew York, Oct. Sri Yesterday being a
legal holiday in the state of Xew York the
n ml activity did not prevail at national
Republican headquarters, although several
prominent visitors, including Jesse Salig
man. Minister Egan; Hon. Richard Guen
ther, of Wisconsin, and Hon. Samuel Fes
senden. of Connecticut, had conferences
with Chairmau Carter and other members
of the committee. Chairman Hahn, of the
speakers bureau, made several important
assignments. Regarding the registration
in this city General C. H. T. Collis said:
"From my personal knowledge of the regis
tration I thinK the large registering indi
cates that the Republicans are much more
interested in the campaign in this state
than the Democrats."7
At Democratic Headquarters.
At the Democratic headquarters the
charge is made that the Republicans are
backing the county Democracy in their
fight against Tammany Hall in this county.
It is said that this tiacking is in the hope
that the third ticket would help the na
tional ticket. Chairman Brookfield, of the
Republican county committee, said: "Whv
shouldn't we back the counties? Isn't it
good politics? If they can hurt the regular
Democratic organization it helps us that I
much, don't it?'' Chairman Murphy, of the
DennK-ratic state committee, says that the
outlook for the Democrats up the state ia
General Sickles Makes a Speech.
General Sickles stated his position at a
meeting at Harlem last night. He said
there seemed to be an impression that he
could le lured into the Republican fold.
He did not recall a single word he had said
at Chicago or Washington, but had con
cluded to go with the majority. G rover
Cleveland would take care of the old sol
diers and he iSickles) was going to con
gress to help him. Harrison as a comrade
was one thing: Harrison as the leader of a
political party was another.
Much Fraud in Registration.
John I. Davenport said yesterday that il
legal registration was rampant in this city.
He said he believed that in the Second as
sembly district alone there had been 2,000
persons illegally registered. Two of his
deputies, who were sent out Thursday
night to investigate with regard to the reg
istration from certain lodging houses in the
lower part of thecity, were so badly handled
that one of them threw np his position. He
wa very mi-h battered, and he showed
evidence of having had a hard time of it.
Davenport says that he will certainly take
steps looking to the arrest of the assailants
of his deputies. .
