Ik hf.au. for Coroner— William D. Dixon. The above is the regular Democratic \ ticket for to-day’s county election. There ; being no contest except for two < ffioes . the canvass has not been specially lively. The general impression yesterday seemed to be that the straight out ticket.: will be re-elected, and that all of the present officials will be returned. The j fight for the Coronership, being a three cornered one,has created the most interest perhaps, and will be the closest. Cant. Dixon has a considerable strength among the Knights of Labor, and it was reported Ibat he will get good support from the employes of the two railroad com panies. A rumor was circulated to the effect that Mr. Fox, t he Workingman’s candidate for Coroner, was about to wlthrtraw in favor ot Mr. Goette, Jpji 'pendont. That would leave the fieolwCear bidden .Mr. Goette and Capt. Dixon. Some of the regular candi dates who have no opposition themselves are making a tight against some other members of the ticket. Capt. Dillon’s election as Receiver of Tax Returns is looked upon as beyond a doubt. The polls will at 7 o’clock this morning, and will close at (1 this alter neon.

The second of the week of prayer meet ings instituted by the various churches in the city was held at Trinity Method st Church lasi night. In spiteot bail weather a lair congregation was present. An ad dress by Dr. Bacon on the subject of ‘•Hu miliation ami Coufession” was listened to with much interest. The reverend doctor’s line of thought was that man is too prone to grade the amount of sin that exists in himself by drawing a comparison betwen himself and others. His idea was that the man should make a close and rigid self examination of his own moral and spir itual condition, raear.lloss ol that of oth ers, and then should repent sincerely of the sins that he finds within hitusell. This repentance, he concluded, should ho both from and toward it. It should he a repentance from the sin and evil which has been found to exist and toward God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Judge Speer Gets Itid of One that lias Ijeen Long on Hie Docket. A case filial had been on ths docket of the United States Court for thirteen years was disposed of yesterday morning by Judge Speer. In more respects than one the case was interesting. The plaintiffs were Isaac DeLyon, Wil liam E. HowtU aud other heirs ot Levi S. DeLyon, who, twenty-five years ago was a wealthy and prominent citizen ot this State. In t.lieir bill the plaintiffs state that about 1863 LeviS. DeLyon died, leav ing Thomas h. Lloyd, Julian llartridge and George S. Owens tiis executors. Ac cording to the provisions of his will they were to sell all of his property and Invest it in Central railroad or some other good stock paying 7 per cent, or more. The proceeds were to be divided alter five years among the testator’s heirs. _ - The property was dulgrfalfi’j and som-jSi insteiui.fc 8Q Central j j Confederate .on. low then and were invest ment. C inordinately heirs the investment turned out to lie a worthless ! investment, and suit was brought against. 6WJ*: executors to recover tbe amount of ISSfN money invested in them. I • Later on Julian Hartridge. one of the executors, died, leaving Mrs. Ilaririilge his executrix. Nome time alterwai'd Amos T. Akerman, Esq., counsel for the plaintiffs, took an order in court striking the deceased executor’s name from the bill. The case dragged along from term to term until Judge Speer got on tbe bouch. and at the beginning of tho present term he assigned the suit peremptorily for Dec. 3. A continuance vrasobtained then, and yesterday it came up again. J. K. Saussy, Ksq.. counsel for Col. Owens, tiled a plea claiming that inasmuch us i tho plain Hits had caused the „ame of one i ot the defendants to be stricken from the j record, there were no proper parties io j the bill, and that, therefore, the plaintiffs j ought to be burred from proceeding j against the other parties. Charles N. | West, Esq., counsel tor the plaintiffs, and I ur. baussy argued the point in the plea AHt length. Judge Speer, in bis decision, the plea and dismissed the suit. y. u. r. a.

The adjourned case of Richard F. Her rington, lately postmaster at Mitchellton, Soriven county, came up before United States Commissliner E. C, Wade Tester day. Herrington was charged with having made false returns to the Post Office De partment of the amount of his stamp can cellations. He was appointed postmaster about three years ago. The office is a small one and tbe postmaster’s compen sation was a percentage oi the value of tue stamps, which he canceled, as in all small offices. Tue postmasters are allowed 100 per cent, per quarter on all stamps that they cancel under SSO. For the next $10) worth they are allowed 60 per cent., and lor the next SIOO worth 50 per cent. On all over $250 worth of stamps canceled per quar ter i hey are allowed 40 percent., provided the compensation does not exceed $250 a quarter. Herrington ordered large quan tities of stamps from the department, and in his quarterly reports claimed, on an average, about SOO as compensation. The department thought, that Alitebellton had suddenly Deoome a thriving place, for previously the returns had not beeu for more than $6 or $7 a year. Inspeotor Williamson was detailed to make an investigation, and be soon dis covered that fraud was being practiced. A postmaster at another < fllce through wmoli the Mitchellton mail passed was in structed to examine all the mail lor one month leaving Mitchellton. September was selected and the cancellations were found to amount to $166. When Herring ton’s quarterly report was sent in he had September down for $3!) 46. aud had made the mistake of putting down some can cellations lor Sept. 31. The department did not recognize the postmaster’s right to add a day to tbe calendar and deducted the amount lor that day. The fraudulent returns cover a period ol eleven quarters, or nearly three years, aud amount to over $1,000.' In that time the actual cancellations were about SO6 Herrington would order largo amounts of stamps and then bring them to Savannah and sell them at their lace value, and would report to the department that he had canceled them. He admitted that the returns which he made were fraudu lent, and he was held to appear before the United States District Court Jan. 17. He furnished SSOO bond and was released. Inspeotor Williamson when be searched the office found that the stock in trade consisted of twenty 2c. stamps, and $l6B worth of postal cards and stamped en velopes. He took the kev, locked up the place and discontinued the office. UNDER THE HAMMER. The January Sales Day a Dull One Among the Auctioneers.

Aliss Kate Claxton Draws a Large Audience. That ever-popular melodrama, the “Two Orphggs.,’; sfts produced at the h Miss Kate C’lax |UMMr n ' “Louise.” was very large, and con loi. <) -swore ladies than have been seen iu the Theatre at any performance before tiiis season. Few plays have a betier hold on the public than the “Two Or phans.” Miss Claxton was well received, and she threw into tho part of tho blind girl her old-time pathos. Her portrayal of the character wa* deeply touching. Al. Donald Robertson’s “Fierro Fro* chard,” the cripple, was a very oorn mendable piece of acting and was ap proved ot by the audience. Tne “D<* Yandrey” of Mr. Edwards, and the “Henrietta” of tbe young lad who Impersonated Alias Sara Jewett also pleased the audience and received a good share ol applause. Charles Stevenson’s “Jacques Froch ani” particularly deserved favor. Miss Florida Abell, formerly with tbe Fords, did very well as “Marianne.” The stage setting and costuming were quite prettv. To-night Aliss Claxton will appear in “Called Back.” It is a first rale melo drama well adapted to soil tbe s>ar, and is one of her strongest performances. SENT IN FALSE RETURNS.

Til© Alexander Directory Organized and Takes Control—Captain Knout Ex plain* to tile Incoming Hoard tho Gen eral Feature* of His adm ini *t ration— The Refunding of llio Company’* Bonded Debt Due of the First Moves to be Made. The Central railroad’s new board of directors met in the company’s bank yes terday morning and qrganized. Gen. E. P. Alexander was elected President and a conference was at once held with Capt. Raoul. The turning over of tho management was not accompanied by any formality. A perfectly cordial feeling marked the conference between tho new board ami the retiring President. He exp’nined to the members the general features of nis he volunteered to anv time reader them any further information or assistance that may be needed. The board heard him attentively and when the conference was over adopted a resolution thanking the ex-president for his statement. A POLICY OK ECONOMY". Last night Mr. John C. Calhoun, who is recognized as one of the leading members of l he directory.stated that the new regime will inaugurate a policy of economy. The bonded debt of the company, on which 6 and 7 per cent, interest is paid, can be and will be refunded at 4>£ and 4 per cent. Capitalists are glad to invest in good 3 per cents., and will jump at a 4 or 4>4 per cent. Capital will be put in tbe com pany’s bank, and it will be made some thing more than a local banking house and will be managed to make dividends for the company, NO SCHEME ON FOOT. Mr. Calhoun again reiterated the state ment which he had made more than once before.to the effect that the new manage ment went into the movement to scoop Central because they believed it could be made an excellent interest-paying prop erty, and not for tho purpose of arranging a scheme by which it can be absorbed by some rival line. Tho result he termed “a glorious achievement.” Air. Calhoun used as strong language in stating the motive which carried him into the scheme as could well have been em ployed. THE NEW BOARD’S MAKEUP. In a previous interview he said that the Inmans,oi New York, who have hitherto been supporting the old management, were willing to go in with the syndicate providing Sam Inman should be given a place on the Board of Dir.dors. Ot tbe new board, bo said, that practically there is but cue Northern man on tho board. He Is himsell a resident of New York but claims South Carolina still as his home,and declares that he is thoroughly in accord with anything that promotes the pros polity oi that State or Georgia. The Cen tral. while it spreads out all over Georgia, penetrates South Carolina too. Air. Calhoun has no doubt but that the refunding of the debt can be readily en gineered.

Tho mean tem perature compared with that of Decem ber tho previous year was as follows: 1871 40.8 1879 58.5 1872 44.0 1880 60.3 1873 51.4 1881 56 8 1874 6::.* ISB2 50.8 1875 55.5118',3 57.1 1*76 -14.011584 54.4 18/7 54.5 1885 51.1 1878 411.0 ! 1886 48.5 There wore 11 clear days, 11 fair davs and f) cloudy days. A light frost occurred on the 7ib. and killing Irosts on the 6cu, Sth, ICth, 17th and 21st. A light snow is recorded for the 6th. The rainfall was a little over 3 inches, which is a little above the average for December. The rainfall during Decem ber for the past fifteen years was as fol lows: 1871 2,39 1379 4.18 1672 2 29 1880 4 4* 1873 8.68 1881 5 u 8 1874 1.66 1882 5 55 1875 41 1883 J 99 1876.... 4 81 1884 3 21 •877 4 06 1885 5 50 1818 5 06 1886 3 16 The month was remarkable for the num ber of cold waves all over the country, which generally originated iu Alunitotia and extended southward to the Gulf ol Mexico. It was colder than tbe average in the entire region east of the Rocky mountains. The rainfall was generally above tbe normal in Colorado, Nebraska, Dakota, the Aliddle Atlantic States, Northern Ohio, Oregon and Washington Territory. An average deficiency ranging from 1 to 3 inches occurred lu the South Paciflo coast region, extending east to the Rocky mountain region. The deficiency in the East and West Gulf States ranged iroin 1 to 4 inches, aud a general deficiency oc curred in tbe entire Mississippi valley. The snowfall was above the average.

The greatest depth of snow lying on the ground being in the upper and lower Lake regions and the Alissouri val ley. At the close of tbe month a cold wave set in, originating in Manitoba with a barometric pressure of nearly 31 inches and commenced to move southward. This Is the wave which is now being felt here. The first decided cold wave of the month occurred on the Ist. It advanced rapidly from Manitoba aud extended southward, reducing the temperature below freezing point in the Alissouri valley, the uuper Mississippi valley, the Ohio valiey’and the upper and lower lake regions on that date.
