Wash ikgtow, Nov. 2. Attorney General
Miller has loaned a circular letter to all
United States marshals and district attor
neys throughout the United States clearly
Indicating the line of policy which the de
partment of justice will pursue in the com
ing elections for congressmen in relation
to the appointment of United States super
visors of election and special deputy mar
shals to watch: the polls. -
' Qaotos Cleveland's Order. -
Thft attorney general quotes an order is
sued by President Cleveland to Attorney
(reneral Garland in 1888, in which that
officer was "requested to take general
charge and direction of the execution of
the-statutes of the United States touching
the appointment of supervisors of election
and special deputy marshals and the per
formance of their duties and their compen
sation, so far as these subjects are by the
constitution and laws under the supervis
ion and sontrol of the executive branch of
Rights of Special Deputies.
Attorney General Miller says the author
ity thus given has never been revoked and
be follows it up by quoting with approval
fie instructions issued on the 18th
of last month by C. M. Denni-
son, chief supervisor of elections of
of the northern district of New York, in re
ply to an inquiry whether "special deputy
marshals have a right to be inside the
place of registration during the progress of
registration, and whether they can be in
side the polling place on election day out
side of the guard-rail."
Sustained by the Supreme Court.
Mr. Pennison cites two cases where con
victions were had for distracting a special
deputy marshal in theexecution of this duty
and says t he decision of t he supreme court
of the United States clearly established the
constitutionality of the law of congress,
and the further facts that authoritv of the
national government is paramount in the
election of representatives, and that "the
national government has the right to use
physical force in any part of the United
States to compel obedience to its laws and
to carry into execution the powers conferred
upon it by the constitution."
Where Supervisor May Stand.
Regarding the position of supervisors at
the polls the attorney general says they
may "take such a position before or behind
the ballot boxes, as will, in t heir judgment.
In-Kt enable them to see each person offer
ing himself for registration or offer
ing to vote, and as will best con
duce to their scrutinizing the manner in
which the registration or voting is being
conducted; and at the closing of the polls
for the reception of votes they are required
to place themselves in snch position as will
enable them to fully perform their duties."
Quotes the C S. Statute.
The attorney general quotes the United
States statute on the subject and adds: "By
section 2022, the deputy marshals are au
thorized to arrest 'with or without process,
any person who commits or attempts or
offers to commit an v of the acts or offenses
prohibited herein, or who commits any
offense against the laws of the United
States; but no person shall be arrested
without process for any offense not com
mitted in the presence of a marshal or one
of his general or special deputies, or one of
the supervisors of election.' Any attempt
to interfere with the supervisors or deputy
marshal in the proper discharge of their
duties is a violation of the law and sub
jects the wrong-doer to a severe penalty."
CLEVELAND TO BUSINESS MEN.
Thousand of Them.
New YonK, Nov. 2. In the Lenox Ly
ceum last night 5,000 Democratic business
men gave an enthusiastic reception to
Cleveland and also to Breckenridge of
Kentucky and ratified the Democratic
nominations. Mrs. Cleveland was present.
Bitting in the center box completely con
concealed until after the speaking began
by the flags and draperies. J. Edward
Simmons acted as chairman and after a
set of resolutions were passed Cleveland
was introduced as "the great standard
bearer of the day." He was received with
an outburts, which only the motion of his
lips in speaking his first words quieted.
Remarks that the Campaign Is Quiet.
Mr. Cleveland said this campaign was
noted for its quietness. If this meant
thoughtfulness on the part of the people
no one could complain when the result
was known. "If we assume that the quiet
of this campaign is attributable to thought
fulness among our people and a deliberate
sense of patriotic duty in the exercise of
their suffrages, there would seem to be no
place for fear or misgivings as to the result
on the part of those who support Demo
cratic principles. In exactly the form they
are involved in the present campaign these
principles were presented two years ago to
the voters of the country and received their
endorsement by a tremendous majority;
since then the drift of public opinion baa
been in our direction, and the doctrines op
posed to ours have been more than ever
Corruption of the Other Fellows.
The speaker then charged the Repub
licans with all the corruption going; said
Democracy was still not absolutely sure
or snccess only because of these corrupt
methods the publication of "impudent
lies" concerning the Democracy and its
candidates, and the wholesale purchase
of votes. This uncertainty was the more
humiliating because the Democracy was
so certainly and plainly tight in the discus
sion. "But," continued the speaker, "a lit
tle reflection, it seems to me, cannot fail
to arouse the American conscience to the
wickedness as well aa the peril of a de
bauched suffrage. It is a plain proposition
that our government is only true to the
nrinfflolea ujxai vthteh. it rests wjfcgi ia ips
operation it. represents tne nonest ana in

Results of a Debauched Suffrage.
"When it does not, its vigor and its very
life1 are gone and it remains but the mere
semblance of -a free government the j
weakest ana most aeiormea pian oi ru Le
that ever deluded mankind. It can then
no longer defend the rights of all, because
rights will be forgotten in the capricious
bestowal of favors. It will then no longer
be the proud manifestation of the strength
and virtue Of a free people, because it will
only be the miserable instrument of craft
and selfishness. Who of all those who be
lieve our government was created to bless
American people and benefit mankind will
deny that the corruption of our suffrage
paves the way to these conditions t j
Charges It to Protection.
This suffrage corruption, the speaker
said, "has its source in the perversion of our
government to the furtherance of limited
and special interests and in the invitation j
thus extended to anticipate a continuance
of governmental favor in compensation for
partisan support. The forces behind it are
greed and selfishness, willing to prostitute
the suffrage of the people to pecuniary
gain. In the light of these considerations
there is nothing unnatural in the situation
ef the pending eantass. sWhsn bar conn- '
trymen yield tmpt4jtqn 6darn their,
backs upon broad- and - disinterested
patriotism that should characterize their
citisetiship and when they reach the point
where they are willing to subordinate po- 1
litical duty to business gain, it is a short
step to active participation in schemes of .
corruption having for their object the re-
tention in power of the party by which un-
earned business profits are promised.
As to the Business Interests.
"This deal between a political party and
private enterprise, by which governmental
aid is promised in exchange for partisan
support, is covered by the pretext of a care
for the business interests of the country.
While we readily concede the importance
of these interests, and while we hold that
no political party should be unmindful of
them, or heedless of leir prosperity, we
insist that no plea for their promotion ,
shall be used to justify political methods
which endanger the integrity and benefi
cence of our institutions. t
Making the Application. '
"Since, therefore, the fair name of our
business interests has thus been used in a
disreputable service, I have deemed it ap
propriate to call attention to these things
in an assemblage gathered toget her under
the auspices of a business men's club. It
seems to lie peculiarly tit and proper that
the patriotic business men of our country
should repudiate the suggestion that care
for the interests they have in their keeping
can !e an excuse for corrupt political prac
tices: they can teach with especial author
ity the lesson that business interests are
safest under a fair administration of hon
est and just government, representing the
nnbought suffrage of our people." i
After he had concluded Mr. Cleveland
received an ovation and then Congressman
" NEBRASKA'S REPRESENTATION.
An Omaha Man Says She Isn't Oetting Her
l ull Rights.
Lincoln, Nov. 2. John F. Cromelinn, of
Omaha, appeared in the supreme court
yesterday with a petition for a mandamus
compelling Governor Boyd to issue a proc
lamation calling for the election of three
representatives in congress at large to fill
vacancies alleged to exist. Cromelian al
leges that under the census of 1890 Ne
braska is entitled to six representatives,
whereas the state apportionment law does
not give the state full representation until
March 3. 1893.
The Contention of Cromelian.
His position is that congress has no
lower to postpone Nebraska's renresenta-
1 tion until March, 18M3, that Nebraska is
j entitled to full representation at the earliest
possible moment after promulgation of the
' census and that there are three vacancies
J which should be filled at once by special
! election. The governor referred the matter
to Attorney General Hastings, whose
oiyuow was adverse to Cromelian. ice

the supreme court for a solution of the

New York, Nov. 2. Lawrence Gardner,
of Washington, secretary of the National
League of Demoeractic clubs, arrived in
New York last night. He will make a re
port of th work of the clubs to the Demo
cratic natTxial committee. "We now have
over 5,W0 clubs," said Mr. Gardner, "and I
don't know how many members. They
include all the Democrats who would join
and they number many thousands. The
clubs have been collecting mite subscrip
tion from voters, and in the south they are
fighting the Alliance with this money."
