LINCOLN DUHKAU or 1116 OMAHA USB , i
LINCOLN , Nov. 7. )
Tlicro was a splendid opportunity to study
the working * of human passion with prldd at
Funk'n opera house lust ulglit. As has benit
stated by THE 13HB , tad o | > ora' ' house was
selected by the republican state central com
mittee a * headquarters forolcctiotl bulletins.
LOUR Doforo the oporutor was ut his desk the
great room , parquets , boxes and gallery was
A perfect soa'of human faces , the picture of
expectation and anxiety , and suppressed ex
citement was manifest on'ovory hand. From
8 to 11 o'clock hope alternated with fear , and
aifxloty deepened rather than diminished , but
occasionally cheers broke the monotony , and
especially when republican guilts' from the
interior of Now York broke the democratic
majority cast of the Bronx. Hut party pride
weighed heavily in the balance until the flrst
telegram uumo from Chairman Quay , and
bedlam broke loose. TUo great throne of
ttert , wottttstr nttd children shouted them
selves hoarse * Cheer uftor cheer went forth
for the republican standard belrur'j. Old
u en danced llvcllorllgs than they over did
in boyhood days. Huts whiucd through the
tfoom , ladles imbibed th inspiration , waved
their handkerchiefs and mingled their voices
with the tthouU of glddno&s that went fourth
for fully a quarter of an hour. But the
scene beggars description. From' that time
on n'o bne Comed to cnttfrtutn any doubt
about the result. The hrst cheerful news ,
however , that came' from Indiana was thcr
signal for another outburst that revealed the
first. It was the hnppicsty JolHosf , loudest
crowd that ever assembled in Fuuk's opera
house. , . . . .
Shortly after midnight when it seemed
possible that New Jersey might Join the
phalanx of the victorious nruiy , the crowd
burst forth id that patriotic song , "Marching
Through GeorKia , " followed by "John
Brown , " nnd other inspiring songs. Tbo
welkin fairly wrung , From time to time the
Lincoln Quartette club favored the uudionco
with excellent music. And during lulls be
tween bulletin reports , frequent calls were
made for speeches from Judge Mason , 1'at-
rick Egan and J. L , Culdwoll , but Uiesa gun-
tlotnen were torf happy to1 talk and wisely'
kept their seats.
R Soon after midnight the , chosen headquarter -
quarter * for tlid over-saugulna democrats
tr r Iffawcally noserteUV Tnly * could not
laud the blast. U was bard dose ou
some of , them from more stand
points than one. Ik to atalod
one Lincoln democrat will lay
down frt.OOO in cold cash on the general fe-
Bull of the election. Otlwn alto lone heavily.
Some of the democrats here seem to bo sad
der over the defeat of Kelly for the legisla
ture than over the defeat of the national
democratic ticket. They made a bitter lighten
on Hall , aided by a number o ( disgruntled
republicans , but failed bjr rieariy 700 votes.
The wonderful vote cast in Lancaster
county wa a aururlso to over/body. It was
almost twice that cast a year agoi No one
dreamed of thd like. OonservMira citizen *
had placed the vote at 8,000 , and by aoina
this was considered ioo high ; hcuco a double
nstoulsher came when It was announced this
Morning that over 10,000 rotes had boon ctst
in the county. Hut other surprises were
also In store. It was found that Leese ami
Conncll were well up with the party vote.
McSlmno's and Morton's.boodle had failed
to cut any pnnrhed llguro. The mllroflds hsi !
been Jownod at their pwa vlllanous Kame.

At 4 o'clock Rroat bonfires lllu-
minntcd , the strootsl Hundreds of
wildly enthusiastic' republicans pramcnrfdcd
.he streets shouting for Harrison ami Mof-
ton. It can bo truly said that bedlam reigned
all night long. A sleepless night was passed
in the Capital eity. It goes without saying
that the republicans of Lancaster county
worked haru for the success of-tlie national ,
state and1 local tickets and succeeded-beyond

An accident happened during the trip of
the flambeau club to Iktcea , Monday night ) ,
the particulars of which huvo just come to
Hunt. The club wont to the place stated o
participate In the republican rally , nnd win "
en route ono of the company accidentally dia
charged one of the chambers of his revolver
nnd the contents lodged In the shou'lder of
Herbert Gorton , who > now lies on a bed of
suffering at his homo at 1C20 Q street. How
it was done no ono seems to know
or cares to toll , but all agree that
it was a pure accident nna that
blame attaches nowhere. The name of the
young muni ejH'secret for the reason'that
ho is excessively quiet , and earnestly beg
time ho be spared In his carelessness. The
accident dampened the enjoyment of the
occasion. Harry was brought home , but the
rust of the club continued in the enjo.vmo'ut
of the occasion when it wns , found that the
.results would not provo fatal. The wound in
\iply'ono , but by careful' ' nursing1 he will
pull through all right.

sulTorcr is past all help , and the end is

noted with alarm the unmistakable
symptoms of the disease ; you have tried
all manner ot so-called cures in vain ,
and you are now despondent and pre

Medical Discovery remains untried. It
is not a cure-all , nor will it perform

cases of consumption , in its earlier

Pnlhetic Story ol'an Rxlle.
From Mr" . Lcnnan'a Siberian paper in
the Cantury : Td me perhaps the most
attractive and sympathetic of the Tomsk
exilcu was the Russian author , Felix
Volkhofaki. who was banished to Si
beria for life in 1B78 upon the charge of
"boloiiKing to a society that intonae , ut
a mdrc or lass remote time in the fi/turo ,
to overthrow the existing form of gov
ernment , " He was about thirty-eight
years of age at the time I made his ac
quaintance , and was a man of cultivated
mind , warm heart nnd'high ' aspirations.
Ho know English well , was familiar
with1 American history and. literature1 ,
and' ' had , . I believe , , translated' into
Russian many of the poqms of Longfcl-
lo\v. Ho spoke to mo with great admir
ation , I remember , of Longfellow's
"Arsenal at Springfield , " and recited it
to-mo'alond. Ho was ono of the most
wlntiing nnd lovable m < m that it has
over been my good .fortune to know ;
but his life had been ay terrible
tragedy. Hia health had boon
shuttered by long" imprisonment in the
'ortross of Petropavlovak ; hia Iratr was
prematurely white ; and when his face
was in repose there seemed to bo an
exprosbion of profound melancholy in
his dark brown eyes. I became 'inti
mately acquainted with him and
warmly attached to him ; nnd when
I bade him good-by for the last time on
my return from Eastern Siberia in 188(5 (
ho' put his arm around mo and kissed
me , and said , "George Ivanovitch ,
please don't forgot usl In bidding you
good-by I fool as if something were
going out of my life that would never
again come into it. "
Since my return to America I have
heard from Mr. Volkhofski only once.
He-wrote me last winter a profoundly
sad and touching , latter , in which
ho informed mo of the death of his wife
by suicide. He himself had been thrown
out of employment by the suppression
of the liberal Tomsk newspaper , the
Siberian Gazette , aud his wife , whom I
remember as a pate , delicate , sad-faced
woman , 25 or 30 years of ago , had tried
to help him support their family
of children by giving- private IC&SOIIB
and by taking in sowing. Anxiety
and overwork had finally broken down
her health ; , she had become air invalid ,
and in a morbid state of mind , brought
on' by nnhappiness and disease , shereik-
soiled herself into the belief that she
was an incvrmbraneo rather than a help
to her husband nnd her children , and
that they would ultimately bo better off
if sfic wore dead. A little more than a
year ago she put an end to her unh.ippy
life by shooting herself through the
head with a pistol. Her husband was
devotedly attached to her , and her
death , under such circumstances and in
such a way , was a terrible blow to him.
In his letter to me ho referred to a copy
of James Russell Lowell's poems that I
had caused to bo sent to him , and said
that in reading "After the Burial" lie
vividly realized for the first time that
grief is of no nationality the lines ,
although written by a bereaved Ameri
can , expressed the deepest thoughts
aud feelings of a bareuved Rus
sian. Ho sent me with his letter
a small , worn leather match-box ,
which had been given by Prince Pirre
Krapotkln to his exiled brother Alex
ander , which the latter had left to
Volkhofski , and which Volkhofski had
in turn presented to his wife a short
time before her death. He hoped , he
said , tnnt it would have some value to
me , on account of its association with
the lives of four political offender * , all
of whom I bad Known. One of them
w\a R refugee In London , another was
an exile in Tomsk , and two had escaped
the jurisdiction of the Russian govern
ment by taking their otru lives.
I tried to road VolUhofaki's letter
aloud to my wife , but as I recalled the
high character nnd lovable jHswonality
of the writer- and imagined what this
last blow of fate must have been to such
a man in exile , in broken health , and
with a family of helpless children do-
pendent' upon" him the written Hues
vanished in' mist of tears , and with a
ohoUint' in my throat I put the letter
and the1 little match-box away.
Cleveland & Harrison agree on one
rint , that the best out is Jarvis' old

Pockctltoo'ks and Money.
Detroit Free Progs : Ho came with
tlie circus to'Lowell , and might have
passed for n minister , but never for a
fakir , as far as looks went. A crowd
"I have hero Russian leather pocketbooks -
books that I am actually going to give
away. Pay mo 50 cents and I will give
you your money back and a pocketboolc.
There are enough of you hero to hold
mo to my word. Merely an advertising
dodge , gents. Deposit your money with
the driver and come around to the front
of the wagon and got your inonoy buck
and a pocketboolt. "
DTwcnty customers took him at his
word. The next vound was : "Make it
$1 , gents. I will do all I ngroo to do' . "
Thirty or more this time , while the
crowd doubled in numbers , all intent
on getting something for nothing.
"Make it two dollars this time , gents.
I will do nil I agree to do. " Sixty cus
tomers paid in.
"Make dollars' it
it a V , gents five
is worth your while to got a pocket-
As many 03 seventy-five paid their
money to the driver , while tno fakir
kept drumming on the wagon scat until
all had paid in.
"Here , gents , are your pocketbool" .
Now , gents , did I say I would give you
your money back this timo'r"
"N " stammered the
no , a man near
wagon with a rather mournful expres
sion on his face.
"Well , gents , I will bid you good
day. " And he wont , apparently satis-
lied with his half-hour's work.
