NEW YORK'S PARTIES. How tho Populist's, Prohibit ionists and Socialist Expect to Vote. New York, Oct 20. The three minor parties, People's, Socialist- Labor and Prohibition, in this city and state, ex pect to largely increase their vote at the coming e.ection. All three were early in the field with tickets and have conducted, considering the means at their disposal, euergtic camnaigus. Tee Populists poiled votes for their first state ticket in ley.'. Ia ISiJ they made a small gain, polling 17,0i:j votes. This year they are ttiking of raising the figures from 33.0JJ to 05,000. They expect to treble the vole in this city, to increase it six-fold in Brooklyn, and to gain largely in Albany, Roches ter and Buffalo. Thn Prohibitionists nolled MS. 191 votes ! for president in the state iu lSyi, aad 82,241 for secretary of 6taie in There is no discouragement among the leaders at the loss in an off year of near ly 14 per cent, and it is claimed that the loss will tie more than made up this election. The Prohibitionists' campaign never stops a day during the year. The amount of literature disseminated is prodigious, and the energy shown in col lecting names, in personal appeals and in investigation of the enemy's weak points may serve aa a model f r all the other parties. The general impression that the Socialist-Labor vote is nearly all that of nat uralized citizens having had no other po litical affiliations is disputed by Fiitor De Leon of the People. He has been curious enough on this score to fre quently test the matter by questioning small groups of his comrades, and has found as high as 75 per cent, former Re publicans or Democrats. Yet that the greater part of this vote is foreign aad that its sentiments and methods ure largely alien will hardly ba disputed. The Socialists look at the Popnlists pretty much aa Herr Johaun Most looks at the Socialists they would be all right if it wasn't for the fact that they are all wrons-. They polled in the states 19,!i34 votes for secretary of state last year, 7,975 be ing in this city. Both of these figures were gains over 1892, and thesa in turn over 1891. This year they are claiming 30,000 in the state and 12,00 to 13,000 in this city. DISTURBED THE 3IEETINU. Judge Ensmlnger Pines Each of the T hree Colored ltaptists $15. Judge Ensmiuger has decided that R. M.-Frazer, Nat Williams aud Lewis Denny are guilty of disturbing the petce of a recent business meeting of the Second Baptist church (colored) on First street, and fined each of them lo. It was proved that Frazer struck the minister. Rev. Mr. Olden, and it looks very much as though the men of the church were rather aisturbed because of the fondness the women display for the pastor. Frazer had attempted to intro duce a set of resolutions deuouncing the pastor, and by an overwhelming vuie it had been "laid cn the taole." It was at this point that the trouble began. . Mr. Frazer would not al low the resolutions to be laid on the table and as fast as they were he would pick them up, and it was finally moved that the resolutions ba liid under the table, which was donedurlcg the en suing difficulty.

As I was wendin my windin way across the kentry to'rds the peaceful and highly moral town of Pilgrims' Roost, drivin my eddecated hog afore me and treatin my jumpin frog and exhibishun grasshopper with a father's tenderness, I meets tip with a female of the opposite sex. She was on foot and kiverin four feet of ground at every step, and ehe was carryin a clut on her nigh shoulder and leadin the five legged wolf with a piece of bedcord. She stops and looks at me and spits on her hands and gits ready to wield tho club, and my nateral feelin's to'rds her sex makes me take off my hat and bow befcre her as the hollyhock bends to the mornin breeze and say: "Fair lady, pass thee by in peace, and my best wishes attend thee!" "Fur which?" sez she in a shoutiti way. "Because I luv ray feller men and wim min and wouldst hev no riot with any body." "What sort of a reptile hev ye got yen??" she asks as she gins my eddecated hog a tap with her club, which causes him to fetch a groan of anguish. "He was born a hog," sez 1, placin my hand on my affectionate heart, "but has bin eddecated till he kin almost pass fur a human bein." "Kin he sing?" "He kin, ma'am, though I never In couraigo Llm to do so in the presence of strangers, perticklerly when them stran gers hev moosic In thar souls themselves, as I think is the case with the purson aforo me." "What's his best holt?" sez she, smilin in blandness at my words of praise. "A-playin two handed euchre, ma'am." "That's no eddecashun to brag about. How ar' ho cn tho fout? "The ways of a hog ar' ginerally ways of peace, ma'am, but I'm thinkin Earn lus might take -s-keer of hisself in v C-ZSt a scrimmage. r-zj -t Mebbe yer five "5sci-- legged wolf might 5 . . . , - be wisnin to tac kle him?"

"Let him purceed to bizness, rna'arn. I should hate to go back on my hog, fur ho plays a fa'r game, but if he's tho sort of critter to be downed by a five legged, hump backed wolf, who hasn't even got a sun burned nose to make him bewtiful, then I'm no longer a friend of his. Incite yer varmint to wade in." She incited, and Ramulus was tackled. In the innercence of his speerit he wasn't ppectin anythin and was rolled over at the fust pop and purtynigh licked. Then he rekiver3 from his astonishment and humps hisself, and 30 seconds arter the first hump he had the wolf on the run. "Was it a fa'r fout?" sez I to the female when the conflict was over. "She was," sez ehe, "and ye kin add the conkered to yer colleckshun. I raised that wolf from a pup and was on my way to Last Chance to sell him to a sideshow man fur .f 3 in cash. Take him along to enhance the enthoosiasm of yer show, fur I wouldn't be found dead with anytbia which a hog could wallop!" That's tho way I cum by the wolf, which hain't eddecated nor moosical nor up to tricks, but will nevertheless dangle his extra leg in a way to amoose the chil dren while thar parents listen to the lec tur' I deliver from the platform. On that same arternoon, while I was ylt two miles from Pilgrims' Roost, I brings up agin a man drivin an ole hoss and a wabblin wagon. 1 sees that the man was rippin mad about sunthin and was passin him by in my humble way when ho jumps down and yells at me: "What's the pood of a man Levin amblsbun and enthoosiasxn and a speerit to hustle out yere in this blamed ken try?" "To whence?" 6CZ I. "Look at that ar hoss!" he yells. ''Look at that ar ft 'look at that ar' hoss!" wag-in! Look at the trick that waa played on tho most childlike reptile In all Cherokee as the shadders of midnight lay upon the airth last night!" "Kin I take it that sum gTeat sorrer has entertd yer soul!" sez I as I gits ready to shed tears with him. "Of course ye kin. That's what I'm a cussin about and grievln over.

While she winds her graceful way across the ta;:e her owner stands with Lis hand on his moral heart and explains the picbur's. The fust one "pears to me to be a paintin of the Alps." "The Alps!

Take tho hoss, and the wagon, and the pano ramy and gin me $10 in cash." ''As hosses and wagons r.nu panoram ies ar' way down, owin to hard times, I'll gin ye $7." "Say $3, and the outfit ar' yours, and on top the cash yo'll hev tho bljssin's of a grateful man.' I gin him $3 In cash and two bottles of my Cherokee sassyparilly, warranted to tech the vital spot if taken accordin to direckshuns, and he went away a happy and incouraged man. The panoramy will be a feacher of my next stand. It has pictur's of the Alps, the Rhine, Nia gary falls, Paris, London and other p'ints, and I shall explain them to the au jeence in conneckshun with the sale of my Cherokee sassyparilly and Magio ce ment, both wanted in every respectable fam'ly.

Original Calendar. It was one of those country towns where every man is as good as his neighbor and no one feels obliged to exert himself over much merely because somebody else ex pects it of him. On the evening before a certain holiday the man who supplied the "cottagers" with ice came round with it, but as he made no announcement of hi Intention to remain at home the nexi morning few persona availed themselves of his stoak. Consequently the supply in several re frigerators ran short, and those who had taken no thought for the morrow were highly indignant with the dealer for his defection. One lady met him in tho street a day or two after and accosted him eonie what severely: "You know, Mr. Stone, we really must have ice every day!" "Sartain," said "Course ye shall." 'But how are we come round?" he benevolently, to get It unless you "Well, ye can't, but I come round reg 'lar enough unless somethiu splits." "But you don't, Mr. Stone. One day last week you didn't come at all." He paused to consider, wiping his heat ed brow with a checked sleeve. "Law, yes!" he said indulgently at length. "Yes, I did too.

No." "Nor call you by your first name?" "No." "Nor think of you any longer aa my sweetheart?" "No." He gazed upon her as one standing upon the shore gazes upon a receding ship.
