Tuesday was an important day on the
Catlarugus end Allegheny reserva
tions In New York, tho Indians, hold
ing their elections. They used the
blanket ballot. A bitter contest was
on between the Democratic and Re
publican factions of the tribes. Elijah

for ipresident, while Frank Paterson,
Republican, was a candidato for re
election. The election resulted in a
triumph for the Republican ticket. On
both reservations 600 votes were cast.

GROWING A HAIR CROP.
J. .), Lomax Makes a Von Against
The Houea Path Chroniclo says:
"During the campuign last summer
Mr. J. D. Lomax was a rip-roaring Jim
Tillmanite, and was almost prostrated
when the genial Colonel was defeated.
He was In town Saturday and asked us
to say that he was still standing Hat
footed for Jim, and that he never in
tended to have his hair cut until t ho
Colonel was elected governor of South
Carolina. We will pass tho hai around,
soon and take up a collection to buy
hair pins for Mr. Lomax, for wo fear
his hair will worry him very much if
ho waits until Jim Tillman is o'ectod
before he has it cut."

HAUNTED TUE GOLD.
The Unquiet Spirit That for Years
Frequented Cape Nolr,
For many years on Cape Nolr, the
western point of Maria, a strange
light was seen, dancing nnd moving
about In tho most unaccountable man
ner. At one moment It would rise liko
a column of firo Into the air, and nt an
other time It would full like a meteor.
Then It would seem to leap over the
point nnd drop Into the soa, afterward
appearing again In tho same spot on
tho hillside. The habitants tell this
story nbout It:
In the tlmo of tho war for the pos
session of Canada n French vessel
pursued by an English warship,
steered Its course Into tho bay nt this
point for refuge. A boat was lowered
from tho side of the richly laden mer
chantman, and In this thirteen men
swiftly rowed to tho shore. Their ob
ject was io secrcto a chest of gold
which they had brought with them. On
reaching tho point they drew Iota to
see which of tho men should remain
to guard tho treasure. Tho ono to
whom tho lot fell was forced to swear
a solemn oath, bjj land nnd sen, by
night and day, by the ruler of tho
nether world, that he would bo faithful
to the trust through lifo, unless re
Ileved by his returning comrades, nnd
oven nfter death would haunt the spot
should no ono come to take his place,
says n writer ]n the Era.
To secure tho fulfillment of this vow
his wicked assoolatcs then and thorp
put him to death aud buried him with
tho treasure. Tho ghostly light was
supposed to bo tho spirit of tho mur
dered man, and many persons who,
tempted by the hope of recovering the
treasury, ventured into the haunted
spot fled In terror nnd told blood
curdling stories of tho horrible phan
toms nnd frightful sights which thoy
had witnessed. Tho light Is seen no
longer. Perhaps somo adventurer
bolder than tho rent succeeded In dis
covering tho gold, carried It off and
thun gave rest to tho unquiet spirit
