A South Cnrollim Siiorllnir 5Inn AVko AYnntH to rut up $50,000. Political belting is rather slack hoik I" Wuslilngloii. It is safe to say that not $70,000 of local money has been wagered ngulnst local money on tbo result ot tho ensuing Presidential oleollon. I'liero beems to be plenty of money about walling for lukeis, but tho pro Miietlve bettors when they meet nic iilmost itiMirlably unnblo i;n ugrco on odds. For Inslnnce, nt Sohirl's uu ten Ing or two since, a young sporting mnn wanted til bet SJ50 to 00 thut Har rison would be cltct.'d nnd ollered to put up Ji'JO or It oil the spot. Or course-no one touched the proposition. Neither will bettors ghe nny consider nblo odds on Cliwolnnil. 'J he oilier uvcu Ing ut Shooninker's two business men, one a Democrat ami tho other u Kepubll inn, mot, nrd '., was thought (hut u bet, would iimu'ii, li both mcr hud money icudy to put up. Tho Hopubllcnn olTered S825 to SI, 000 on HuiTison's election. The Democrat had tho 81,000 in his pocke' and wns liiuly to bet, but hu wuiiled bctlor odds S000 ut least lor his thousnml. Hut ho couldn't get it, nnd no bet was made. There bus been lots or Democratic money olTcrcd nt Khoomakei's, but not at suillclcnt odds to attract takers. A couple or bets of 31150 und S&0, ccn, hno been mlido nt Miller A: Jones's, bill they weio between ft lends, lie II her of whom stuck for odds. Tlio bets wro on the general icsiilt. At Chumbcrlin's theio has been but little election talk and none, of it litis been bunked by money. At llugcity's u bet of a SI 00 to S7S that Ilurrlsoil would cmiy New Yoilc was olTcrcd and not taken bcuiuse no ono with S7" to bet was in the place nt the time. Doubtless, though, If the gen llemiin still wants lo plaoo ills money th's way ho can icndlly beucennimod ited. U, "'Iho Sidcboutd" lust night n Washington business mun who has rlmwii himself to bo ono ot the shtewd cst political bcttets in the city ollcrtd tlio iniiowing bets nnd it is announced lhcy can be bud for the asking uny timo: Si 00 to S.'OO tlint Michigan goes Demo, emtio; 3100 lo sOO thut, ludmti.i goes Democratic; SI 00 to So thut New Yoik feocs Dcmocinlln; iAcn lnoncv thut Cleveland Is elected; SlOl) to J200 that California goo-, Dcmocr,itlo; fcoOO even Hint Orant beats Hewitt in tho New York Mayoralty contest. A Western mun litis already secured u piece or the Callrouila proposition. A well-known I1 sticct business m.n is oUcring money on Ilnnlson's election in nmeuiils of trom Si 00 to 310,000, but so lln( us is known ho luis not j-ct lilaccd any lingo bets. A Western nuin witli SI 00 to bet on Iluni'-oii wus sent from tho Kbbitt to Shooinakei's Tuesduv and told thut ho could piobublv get bis money covered there, but he didn't show up at the latter place. Hu would piobably have been ac commodated if he hud. as a great deal or Democratio menev has been olleied lit- lots or peoplo in thut piuco and not taken. It seems odd though thut tho West erner could not pluco his bet on Iliirrison when the Democratic Vlce-Picsidcnti.il nominee was in tlio snine house. An odd sort of n bet was mado in one of tho street cur burns recently. Tho he! was between two drivers. vThe piop (wltlon is that the loser shall gio liis ovcicoat to tho winner nnd not replace it, dining tho winter. Tho loser Is go ing to havo a -very chilly timo ot it on the fiont platlorm of his car, tills winter "without nn overcoat.

Another Wushing toninn olleied n Baltimoio paity by tele graph to bet Si, 000 to S000 that Close land would bo elected, but tho Balti morenn would only oiler $825 and the bcjl was nut made.
