Aldrich, acting in the absence of Attorney
General Miller, as attorney general.saia toa
United Press representative yesterday
morning that all be knew about the elec
tion troubles in the state of Alabama was
what he learned from the newspapers; that
he had received no complaints from United
States officers in Alabama, and of course in
the abeence of such could not take cogni
zance of reports of contemplated alleged
violations of law. If any complaints were
made they would receive prompt considera
tion. Aldrich was inclined to treat the
matter rather lightly, ana thought the sit
uation of affairs was not so serious a indi
cated. He said the circular issued by At

all the authority of the federal government.
Tlit Nation I Paramount.
He particularly empbasi.cu tue closing
paragraph of that circular, which read as
follows: "The duty and the authority of
the supervisors and the deputy marshals in
the premises are too plain to ! misunder
stood. IJeariiig in mind always that they
are officers of t Ik? peace as well as officers of
the election, and never forgetting that
where the state statute io::l!iets itli the
statute of the United States touching these
elections the national si.Mttite is paramount
and must lie obeyed, these tinkers should
go forward quietly, but resolutely, in the
discharge of their duties, without fear or
favor, with the firm determination, so f::r
as in them lies under the law, to see that
there is an honest, free and fair election
and a fair return and canvass of the vote."

New York, Nov. 3. Charles A. Howes,
an expert forger, who has traveled from
one end of the country to the other and

Bow It Arrives at a Decision Chicago
Lake Front Cases.
Washington, Nov. 3. Rumors pub
lished in regard to the supreme court hav
ing arrived at a conclusion in the Chicago
lake front cases in favor of the Illinois Cen
tral Railway company can be traced to no
authentic source, and are believed to be
entirely sensational guess work. Eanh jus
tice of the supreme court carries a locked
book in which he makes his own entries
of the cases under argument and his own
memoranda of his views of the law in the
matter. Every Saturday the judges meet'
in their consultation room and compare
their notes of the cases under advisement.
Haven't Taken the First Step.
If it is found that on all important ques
tions involved there is a substantial agree
ment of a majority of the court, one of the
justices is assigned to the duty of prepar
ing an opinion. In all important cases this
opinion is read to the full bench on a sub
sequent consultation day and is then an
nounced on the following Monday. No
deviation is made from this method of
precedence. Enquiry of court officials
fails to establish the fact that even the pre
liminary consultations have yet been
held on the Chicago lake front

The Noted Arctic Kxplorer Takes Too
- Much Laudanum.
Portland. Ore., Nov. 3. Lieutenant
Schwatka, the famous arctic explorer who
had the record for the longest sledge jour
ney ever undertaken by a white man, was
picked up dying on the street here yester
day and died soon after being taken to the
police station. He hod taken an overdose
of laudanum either by mistake or for sui
cidal purpose. He was born at Galena,
Ills., Sept. 29, 1849, and was graduated
from West Point Military academy when
22 years of age. He served against the In
dians in Arizona awhile, studied law and
was admitted to practice in Nebraska in
1875, and was graduated from a medical
college in New York a year later.
Might Have Been Apoplexy.
Lieutenant Schwatka had been suffering

shown symptoms of apoplexy on numerous
occasions. His stomach had of recent
years given him much trouble, and for the
purpose of finding relief he used small

to twentv ilrous. Tuesdav evening hi !
stomach trouble came on with such sever
ity that he complained bitterly, and sought
relief, fie went into a drug store and ob
tained two ounces of laudanum, but ap
peared in excellent spirits, except that he
talked aUiut his ailments. The city phy
sician thinks the lieutenant's life might
have been saved if a physician had been
Subject for the Psychologists.
New York, Nov. 3. Joseph Wiersky, a !
genteel-looking youth of 18, with the fair i
complexion which accompanies German
parentage, was arraigned before Judge
Cowing for burglary. "I am guilty," said
the boy. "I cannot help stealing. I am a
born thief. When I see anything like
jewelry or watches I steal them because I
cannot help it. I do not steal them be
cause I want to get money, because I don't
get anything for them. I give the things

ica because I stole and they could not stop
me." The boy can speak eight languages,
but has stolen everything he could get hold
of since he was a little child.

potion. She died soon afterwards. Childs

mixture, but recovered.
