There was general interest in election
news yesterday. Tho Eagle's bulletin
was watched all day by a large crowd and
at times the crowd found something caus
ing some to feel sad and some rejoice. As
a rule the fellows rejoicins took more
interest than the others and remained
longer, thus having a majority most of the
time. Tho betting showed up a little dur
ing the day on state and county tickets.
In county affairs the most interest was
centered in the fight for district clerk.
Luling had left the city with over 900
majority but as the townships came in
this faded away. The farther back the
township the heavier the ma
jority for Ayres combination. By
3 p. m. the county majority for Ayres had
reached over 1,100 and Afton and Erie had
not been heard from, but there was no
longer any doubt. It seems quite certain
that Ayres has about -100 majority. In Af
ton, Erie, Gypsum and "West Park only
partial returns have been secured. The
judges hold onto the ballots very closely,
but it is supposed they will bo in by Fri
day, when the official count will be made.
V. S. Morris is ofE the anxious seat, hav
ing over Atwood, the Alliance candidate,
GOO plurality, and Sam Arnidon got the red
flag at the first quarter, coming out 1,900
For probate judge, Buckner has a ma
jority of about 550 according to his
count and estimate, but Dixon
keeps watching the poll books
to see that nothing happens. Pence has
rustled personally and got complete re
turns concerning himself. The vote for
him was 13,450; Baily, Alliance, 2.8SS; Hen
dee, Democrat, 2,498. This gives Pence
the office by 50.;.
In the first commissioner district Haden,
the Alliance candidate, is elected over
Duncan, Democrat, by 93. Douglass jroes
back to the house of representatives by
027 over Mathewson and Hurt is elected in
the west district and Ruble is the east dis
trict. Joe Henly was second by about 80
votes. In the ballots of the First and
Second wards there were 80 Republican
tickets voted with the name of Douglass
and it is quite evident it was intended to
vote for Henly, but the mistake due
to a bad blunder from some one.
In the city Hallswell received 2,618,
Simpson 2,326. giving a innjority of 292 for
Hallowell. Tho indications from the
country are to the effect that Hallowell
will be defeated in the county by 800 votes.
In the city Governor Humphrey has 921
voies, Robinson 3,110 and Villits401. The
returns as made from the townships give
Humphrey 1,505; Robinson 6,566, and Wil
lits 1,522.
In the report of the city vote by precincts
ns made yesterday there were a few errors
due mainly to tne rush and two precincts
had not come in in time for the last edi
tion. The complete returns for the city
are as follows:

A well known man who sometimes
places money on election times to another
of like practice, at 3 p. m. yesterday: "I
will bet you the prohibition candidate for
governor is elected." Prompt reply: 'I
won't bet any more this year."
There were mauy stories about betting
yesterday going the round. Among them
was an instance where a fellow went Jo0
even that liumnnrey wouhl be tfce next
covernor. and he had concluded to nw.ke a
clear stand-off Inter, and went SSQ to tW)
that Robinson would be elected. He is
out $100 and has not the courage to try to
even up. He says he bad not heard of but
two candidates for governor, but as there
was a third from Georgia. Alalwina may
be represented farther back in the town
ships, so he will proceed not to proceed.
Councilman Williams says that within a
few days he will again introduce a reso
lution before the council to have the Wich
ita and Western grade cue down. It had
been the custom to introduce resolutions
on that topic semi-occasionally for two or
three years and another one in his judg
ment was about due.
In the meantime McKee wants the elec
tric railway track lowered on the West
Side. The street commissioner ten days
ago was instructed by the council to take
up the track within five days and hold a
post mortem on the whole matter. So far
the track has not been moved by ex
plosives or any other way. It is thought
dynamite may put in an appearance in
that vicinity within a few days, but in the
meantime the cars will proceed to travel
on time.
The Electric Railway company is pro
gressing slowly with the work at the
power station. The steam pipe for the
engine delays the game very much.
Mr. George Walters leaves for Joplin,
Mo., today, to look after some mining in
terests. He says the Wichita boys shovel
ing ore around Joplin are getting along
J. C. Norton of Detroit, Mich., arrived i
yesterday and will spend a few days look
ing over the southwest and Wichita. He
has an eye out to business, and may possi
bly locate in business.
There was a touch of high life last night
in a building on North Main. A round-up
party was having a gay time and collided
with a simliar lay-out. Some bad blood
was turned loose, in the midst of a hurly
burly. Contractor Rogers is rushing the work
on the city building. The higher the
walls the more stone down on the streoU
in the viciuity of the building. It is
thought that within one month about all
the stone work will be completed.
If your soul is longing to hear a real
gospel sermon go to the new
United Brethren church, on the corner of
Washington avenue and Prince street. To
night will be the last chance to hear the
evangelist. Sen-ices will coutinue through
out this week at 2:30 p. m., and at night.
Everybody earnestly invited.
Some of the residents of Fairmount have
requested that a public telephone be placed
at the most convenient point and Superin
tendent Chipchase of the telephone com
pany has the matter under consideration.
The same request has been made by some
at College Hill. It is thought quite prob
able that the improvements will be made.
A tall, awkward lookiug fellow, not ac-
cutsomed to jumping off electric street
airs, gave a performance on Main, oppo
site the court house, yesterday. Tho car
was up to regulation speed and the fellow
stepped off very quickly but soon com
menced to rattle arouud on the pavement.
It was not a hot day and tho asphalt was
hard and offered a positive resistance to
the man of speed. In the course of time
the fellow got himself together againj and
announced to a few who were ver much
amused at the performance, his name was
John Dobson aud he did not wnnt much
hilarity over his misfortune.

The Queer Incident 'Which Gar What
Cheer Lotlge Its Nime Not?.
An exchange says that What Cheer
ledge, a famous Masonic body of Provi
dence, It. I., owes its name to the follow
ing incident: When Roger Williams fled
from persecution in .M;is.-aclm-etts as he
crossed the river Seekonk. winch separates
Rhode Island from Ma-sacha&Us, he waa
hailed by some Indiana who were standing
on a rocky point on the Rhode Island
shore with the salutation, "What cheer?"
awl he at once landed to receive from them
a friendly welcome to his new home. Such
is the origin of the name. It is also the

Pen rictnres of Natives of tho Upper
MUiltilppl Who Spend Their lcb-S
on tho Water They Pay Neither Boat
Nor Taxes and Have No Coal Hills.
Down by the water's edge and upon
the broad bosom of the great Father of
Waters are moored a number of small
boats, which are literally floating homea,
and invite no small amount of enriodty.
This new Venice u located near the
east end of Robert street bridge, and is
popularly set down as a tough village.
Standing upon the bridge. 75 or 100
feet above the water and flats, and look
ing down upon these unique homes, yon
see a desolate stretch of shore line broken
by rock piles, decaying skiffs, irregular
stacks of bark and driftwood, fragments
of tin roofing, rotten seines, broken bar
rels in all stages of hoopless disintegra
tion, and all the other flotsam and jet
sam incident to the beach of a waterway
with tides or a varying volume of water.
In the foreground, and surrounded by
this abomination of desolation, are
moored the string of boat homes.
All are small, but some are larger
than others. From the altitude of the
bridge they look like chicken coops, or
the residences of ultra-fashionable swine.
Descending from Robert street to the
flats by means of a Jong flight of steps,
the first boat approached is a small un
painted affair, stranded npon a stony strip
of real estate temporarily loaned by tho
river. The windows are cnrtamless and
dirty, no smoke curls upward from the
Etovepipe on the roof, and you conclude
that it is untenanted. There i3 a win
dow in the door, and a climb to the deck
lays bare a bachelor's home, confessed
in the comfortless interior
The next boat was quito elegant In
comparison. It was about thirty feet
long, painted dark lavender, and had a
latticed porch or veranda, without a
roof, extending around three sides. A
shallow flight of steps led from the
ground to this porch on the deck, and
pretty rustic flower pots and hanging
baskets adorned the steps and hung from
the lattice work. On the back porch a
line full of baby garments fluttered in
the breeze, and a big black dog snooz
ing in the sun kept guard over alL The
owners of this boat are Danes or Nor
wegians. The husband is a turner, and many or
namental pieces of bis handiwork can
be seen about the boat His wages are
2.50 per day, and with no rent, taxes
or assessments, street sprinkling or water
tax to pay, and with an industrious, eco
nomical and tidy little wife, this young
manv is much better fixed for saving
money and enjoying life than oi-half
of the men who get double his salary.
Following along the path the third
boat is reached, and the yonng couplo
who live here are cousins of the turner's
family. Such perfection of neatness in
every detail of the small household it
has probably nover been your good fort
une to see outside of a New England
home. The kitchen floor was as whito
as soap and honest scrubbing could
make it; the round breakfast table was
covered by a bright Turkey red table
cloth; the small cook stove shone like a
mirror, and every cooking utensil in .
sight was bright as a new dollar.
Tho second room was a bedchamber,
and tho same neatness was manifest in
! the hiteness of tho 6Preads nd PilIow
' shams, the worked splasher and shining
toilet set. Not a speck nor a spot any
where. If yon are astonished into re
marking1 upon this high state of cleanli
ness the housewife, who cannot speak
English readily, will point with a smile
to tho oceans of soft water just outside
the window, and the explanation is com
plete, although you leave that house
with your respect for the Scandinavian
housekeeper raised several degrees.
The rooms of this boat are all neatly
papered with a small patterned JEt
paper and bright border of good width.
The floors of the sitting room and bed
room are covered with a pretty square
patterned oilcloth which looks not un
like tiling, and over this is spread a
strip of bright, new ingrain carpet for a
rug. In the sitting room stands a hand
some hardwood swinging crib, finished
to resemble antique oak, and the work
of the turner next door, who i3 second
cousin to tho month old owner of the
crib. Nottingham curtains as white a3
the bed coverings aro up at the win
dows and looped back with bows of rib
bon. A rustic stand and flower bowl, as ar
tistic as inan)' which adorn Summit ave
nue lawns, holds a healthy species of
palm, and rustic baskets filled with deli
cate vines fill the windows and lend an
air of refinement to the room, which is
strangely incongruous because of that
picture of outer abominations that is
imprinted npon the retina of your eyea.
In the fourth boat lives a yonng
couple who are just beginning life.
They are Danes, and have only lived on
the river for one year
Their boat also contains three rooms,
but owing to limited resources they
were unable to fit them up as nicely as
might be desired, but the same scrupu
lous neatness was over everything. The
owner is building another boat, which
is to be forty feet long and have four
rooms when completed. A boat of this
aze, if built by himself, will cost the
owner in the neighborhood of 100. The
ooat now occupied by this couple was
built by the man at odd times at a cost
of $?6.

Seventh street building, has lined the
walls and ceilings with thick paper, and
the house u sung in the coldest weather.
The Email hold m the bottom of the
boat has more or less water tn it. and in
summer it makes a very good milk
house, while in winter they can keep a
supply of meat on the ice without any
trouble, and save money by buying in
Iwge quantities St. Paul Pioneer Prea.
