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

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

Judge Ensmlnger Pines Each of the T hree

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.

"Because I luv ray feller men and wim

she asks as she gins my eddecated hog a

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

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

his extra leg in a way to amoose the chil
