HOW THE CLERKS HAVE BEEN MILKED.
The President Swells the Corruption
Fund, and the Clerks Chip In
"Voluntarily."
It was Riven out nt the While House
last night that President Harrison uns
not yet decided whether be will go
home to vole or not.
There were two hoyR once upon a
time who wanted to fight but didn't;
because one was afrntd and the other
daresn't.
'When n man gets Into tho frame of
mind that lie is afraid to do one thin?
and dare not do another, he solves the
tllfllcully by taking to the woods.
I'rctlilont Harrison has gone duck
shooting.
One day early tills week a delegation
of Indlnnians, some of whom bad come
here expressly for that purpose, called
nt the White House nnd had nn Inter
view with President Harrison. They
were exceedingly urgent that be should
go out to Indianapolis and vote. They
insisted that bis august presence Iu the
sad November days would make them
tho gladdest of all tho year,
and generally whoop things up
tlirouphout Hooslcrdom for the 0. O.
P. 1 bey said things were very doubt
ful out there Just now. The
MrKlnlcy tnrllT net was rals
Ing well, raising prices, and
unles be, even llenjamlo. came out
and inspired them with bis presence
the Ilooilcr ltcpubltcans were mighty
apt to let things slump.
The President demurred In a digni
fied fashion, and had a good dual to say
about tho pressure of public business.
He would of course like lo go. but
might be prevented by the necestltlos of
his position as tbe American Atlas.
Hut lie was talking to men who knew
him. Old personal and political friends
find neighbors who had been in nnnv a
inldnleht caucus with him. Tfiey
prefscd him to the wall ami metaphori
cally walked all over him.
Finally thev brought out the real res
Kin that gives Harrison doubt.
He fears the result. He Is afraid that
Indiana will go DeniDcratlc, and he
argues with the peculhr shrewd
ness which is his wherever
Ills personal Interests are at
stake that If he go out there now and
the State should go Democratic It
would discredit him in tbe eyes of the
country. He but lately made a trip
through the State, ami he fancies that
the crowds which turned out to greet him
did so because of hi personal popular
ity, and not simply to see a President.
If now he should return to vote and his
party be beaten he dreads the elteet It
would have upon hit standing in his
On the contrary, if be remain away
on the convenient plea of pressure of
public business, asd the State should go
ltemibliean, he cau attribute it to bU
strength at home. If it should go
Democratic, lie ami hU friends cm
claim that this result was due to his
unavoidable and patriotic abseuee.
It Is a king of "beads I wis, tails you
lose" argument.
Tbe fact is every Msible effort has
beeB wade by the President, and bis
frU-ads to win Iu Indiana. Clerks
and itber Federal employes here
awl elsewhere hate been bled
by "voluntary eotiUibutloas" at

TiiTKiiAttv, Oct. 21 The court to
day ordirod summonses served upon
Messrs. Harrison, O'ltrlcn, Dillon and
otlurs Identified with the recent troubles
with the police. This action was taken
at the Instance of tbe counsel for the
Crown, which promptly followed up Its
succtM ot yesterday In securing tbe dis
missal of the preceding and defective
charges against the defendants by ob
taining from the court the new sum
monies. As tbe matter now stands tbe
defendants are relegated to the assizes
for trial, after a preliminary hearing
bad tieen had before an ordinary court
of petty sessions.
The Crown's action has renewed the
excitement which existed among the
people of Tlpperary during the earlier
davs of the conspiracy case.
The feeling Is that the govern
ment, by transferring Its prosecu
tion of the prisoners, hopes to
strengthen a hold upon them
which It felt to lie weakeulng. Father
Humphreys, one of the defendants

asked that a summons be Issued for tbe

man 's net was left uninjured between
Long llranch and Seahrlght. In sev
eral Instances where the owners of the
crab pots nnd fishing pounds set out to
take In their traps their boats were cap
siml and the Inmates had a narrow
tscape trom drowning.
Noteworthy Is the case of .lobn Mor
ilson, whose boat was swamped In his
nttempt to save his nets, ltut for his
timely rescue by a fellow fisherman he
would have gone lo tho bottom. When
the rescuing party had nearly reached
thu shore they met with the same fate
as Mr. 5Iorrlson. Their lioat was
swamped, and they had to light hard to
reach shore In safety. In each Instance
the boats were lost.

to the rain was the heavy spray from

much severlly. Many small oyster
sloop were driven ashore and the un
usually high tide was the me ins of
doing considerable damsge.
The high tide caused much delay to
travel along the line of New York and
Long llranch Ilallroad. At IS.ry Way
the tracks for half a mile were sub
merged to s, depth of two feet. At the
llarltan ltlver draw the storm raged so
fiercely tbat extra guards were placed

At Seabrls-ht. Monmouth lleach and

From that hour until tbe same hour

As tbe wind was on shore, it drove
the waters uf the bay up into the North

high tide was the result. At I o'clock
this morning, when the tide was high

Uvil with the too of the sea wall, three

The water besraa running int the

The cloudy weather and lh on
slant Indications of tain perwpllWy
diminished the attendance al Iteming'
to-day. Th heavy uAn fall of yester
day and last night mule Ihe Ir.tck a
vitltahle sea of mud, and the horoes
plunged around In it, fetlock deep,
while the bright, satin jackets of the
jockeys were liberally bespattered with
the slimy oorc that described paralwilc
curves through the air every time the
horses took a stride. The atari
and finish of a race were
two separate pictures, and when
the lioisee pamd under the wire It
would bate pujvleri a Solotnon to detect
the color of the jockeys, white ami black
were alike covered with the mm!, and
to them the sport was anything but
agreeable.
Owing to tbe condition of the track
"mud" horses were the favorites, and
In nearly every race those carrying the
top weight carried the public's money.
The wind and what meagre sunshine
there was Lelped In a measure to re
deem the ellipse from a vctltihle
morass, but even had tbe wind been a
gale and the sun been that of July It
wciild not hive sutllced to have thrt
trsck other than what a disgusted
jockey said, "A regular mud hole."
Still, with all these disadvantages
there was a fair attendance, of course
It was composed of men. and naturally
all of them were there to bet. It nude
little difference to them what tbe
weather was It never does tn the fol
lower of races ami they braved the
chilly weather and prospective wetting
just a if they wete used to tbat weather.
And aside, It can be slated that in vny
of them are.
The card, which was the tame is
would have been run off yesterday, w
an excellent one. The fields were nt
too laige. and .tlmmy Howe, as he
ploughed around with his heavy rub'

having a very hard day la the starting
