New York Yachtsmen Who Know Are
Saying Very I/ittle.
New York, October 20. — The ad
journed meeting of the committee of the
New York Yacht Club, appointed to con
sider the proposition of Lord Dunraven
for a race for the America’s cup, met at
noon and held a protracted session to
complete the work of yesterday’s meet
ing. General Charles Paine, the cun de
fender, was in the chair. A sub-com
mittee was appointed to formulate and
complete the result arrived at. Members
of the committee are evidently all under
a pledge of secrecy and refuse to divulge
the nature of the proceedings. None of
the committee would say whether there
would be a race.

MUTINY IN THE RANKS.
Now York Democrats Will Not Obey
Orders to Register..
REPUBLICANS, ON THE OTHER
HAND, ARE HUSTLING.
They Are Registering in Barger Numbers
Ilian Ever Before and Some Talk of
Coming Down to the Bridge with
100,000—Anything Bess than 70,000 in
Gotham Will Beat Cleveland—Demo
cratic Prospect Dark.
New York, October 20.—The 36 elec
toral votes of New York are essentially
necessary to the Democracy if it hopes to
win. The managers of the National
campaign know it, and are moving
“heaven and earth” to get things in
shape. The occasion is a desperate one,
and every political force at the command
of the party has been enlisted. The out
look is dark, and as election day draws
nearer and nearer it seems to become
worse.
Every effort has been made to bring
about a meeting between Cleveland and
Hill. The men who are near to Cleve
land have actually humiliated themselves
in their desire to secure an outward sem
blance of harmony, but have failed.
The machinery of the State is working
energetically at State Headquarters, but
in the counties above Harlem the inter
nal- is n.ithp.r luintruid or there is none at
all.
“If our people do not register,” said an
uptown leader,the other day, “it is not our
fault. We cannot compel men to regis
ter.5 *,
That story has been repeated by others,
and those who have heard it are half in
clined to believe that word has gone
forth to Democrats not to register. The
increased registration in the eleven
Republican cities of the state shows what
the Republicans are doing. There are
still two days more for registration up
in the state, and it is expected that the
total increase will exceed by many
thousands the increase of former years.
Conservative Republicans and frank
Democrats as well, figure that Harrison’s
plurality in the counties above the Har
lem will approximate 100,000. In 1888
he received 91,000 and got a total of 91,
764 in the Republican counties of the
state.
Chairman Harrity has heard from reli
able sources about the conditions within
his own party in the iaterior, and he is
far from satisfied. The voters are not
coming out to register, and those who do
not register he knows cannot vote.
Cleveland’s plurality in the city was
55,813 four years ago when he was the
candidate of the united Democracy of
the country. The Democratic politi
cians who talk for effect are predicting at
least 75,000 plurality in New York this
year when Cleveland is not the choice of
the Democracy; when his nomination
was forced on it, and when a Mug
wump force has chuckled because Tam
many had to accept him. Of course he
will get nothing like it. The leaders of
Tammany know it, the anti-Snappers
know it, and Chairman Harrity knows it.
Unless Cleveland gets more than 70,000
plurality in New York, he will ■■ e defeat
ed, for Harrison’s vote in the interior is
bound to be heavier than ever before.
A STIR AT HEADQUARTERS.
Mr. Blaine Calls to Talk Politics with Mr.
Manley.
New York, October 20.—There was an
unusual stir at the Republican National
Headquarters, Fifth avenue and Forty
second street, soon after 10 o’clock this
morning, when a carriage drove up con
taining the tall form of James G. Blaine.
Mr. Blaine walked briskly up the long
flight of stone steps leading to the main
entrance in a manner hardly to be ex
pected of a reputed invalid. He was met
bv Colonel Swords, the sergeant-at-arms,
and escorted to the private office of Mr.
Manley, where he had a talk on political
matters. Mr. Manley afterward stated
the situation as follows: “Mr. Blaine’s
visit.” he said, “was purely for the sake
of a political conference, ana lie came
here this morning for that purpose. The
details of that conference, as it was of a
confidential nature, I cannot, of course,
make public, but vou may be sure that
Mr. Blaine is in hearty sympathy with
us, and will do what he can to aid the
fight.”
Accident to Senator Frye.
Kalamazoo. Mich., October 20.—A
despatch says that Senator Frye of Maine
sprained his ankle at Jackson, where he
made a political speech Tuesday night,
and is laid up at the residence of Senar
tor Stockbridge.
Shot for a Banquet.
Skowjiegan, October 20.—A game
hunting contest was held here today
with sixteen leading citizens on each

dred animals were brought in, repre
senting nearly all the Maine wild game
and birds save moose, caribou and bear.
There were forty at the grand banquet at
Hotel Heselton.
Baugor Men Arrested.
Halifax, N. S., October 20.—George
and Henry Bussell, brothers from Ban
gor, Me., were arrested here last night
charged with stealing money and valua
bles from various persons in the Euro
pean house. One prisoner escaped dur
ing the night and is still at large. The
other is in the lockup.
Will lave in Augusta.
Augusta, October 20.—Hon. James
G. Blaine and family have decided to
make Augusta their residence after the
coming winter. On her recent visit to
this city, Mrs. Blaine stopped an hour at
their mansion here, thoroughly inspect
ing it. The family have concluded to
put it in complete repair and make sev
eral changes, remodeling the kitchen,
etc. The grounds are also to be ploughed
and graded. These improvements will
be begun at an early day. They will live
here, spending but a brief period at Bar
Harbor during the summer season. Mr.
Blaine is strongly attached to Augusta
and prefers to live here.
Kimball—Shaw.
Bath, October 20.—Last evening there
occurred in this city one of the most
brilliant events of the season, being the
wedding of Miss Mary E., daughter of
M. G. Shaw, to Fred Humphreys Kim
ball of this city. The wedding was held
at the home of the bride on High street,
Bev. O. W. Folsom officiating. After
the ceremony a reception was held. The
house was decorated with cut flowers
and the wedding lunch was served by
Caterer Eobinson of Portland.
PORTLAND’S PROMINENT VISITORS.
Lynch the Convict, Besides Garza, the
Bandit, Said to Have Been Here.
Boston, October 20.—For weeks past
the police of Boston have known that
one of the nine convicts who made a
daring escape from the state prison at
Charlestown on July 8th was
hiding in London, Eng. It is
now positively known that the
convict is none other than Lynch,
that stoically bold criminal who has ter
rorized the citizens of Boston, especially
those living in the Back Bay district, by
the audacious manner in which he has
• compelled many to hand over valuables
at tlie dead of night.
Lynch, a day or two after his escape
was very nearly recaptured. An officer
came upon Booth and Lynch and suc
condod in lw-ddincr Booth hut T.vnch es
caped. Several days after, foot sore and
nearly starved, he threw himself on the
mercy of a fishing party. The helped
him, gave him clothing and money and
he returned with them to Boston. At
Broadway station of the Bos
ton & Maine R. R at Everett he took
a train for Portland, Me.
Just how he managed to get to Eng
land from Portland is a conjecture. It
is supposed he hunted up old acquaint
ances there,% and from them obtained a
sufficient sum to carry him to Halifax,
N. S., where he could work his way on
some foreign bound steamer.
How Augusta Will Celebrate.

AT ETERNITY’S DOORWAY.
Any Moment May Be the Last of Mrs.
Harrison’s Life.
THE SUFFERER UNABLE TO MOVE

Her Cough Has Returned With Violent
Paroxysms that Make Inroads on Her !
Little Store of Strength—She May Ral
ly and Regain Some Lost Ground, But
Her Death Is Liable to Occur at Any
Minute.
Washington, October 20.—There has
been a change for the worse in the con
dition of Mrs. Harrison. Tonight she is
weaker than at any time since her illness
began. She is greatly exhausted and
cannot tuap her head upon her pillow.
Her cough, which had ceased to trouble
her, is now said to have increased in
volume. This, coming as it
does in paroxysms, has a very
(depressing and exhaustive effect
on the patient. Mrs. Harrison passed a
comparatively quiet day and did not suf
fer so much from nervousness. She ex
perienced more difficulty than usual in
taking nourishment, which she had
heretofore taken with regularity. Al
though she was in such a weak state, her
physician said tonight he did not appre
hend an immediate fatal result, and
thought it probable that by morning she
might rally and regain some of her lost
strength.
10 p. m.—Mrs. Harrison has rallied
ov/iuu ii xiuui x/i . va (ill u uvi uuj o oiiv 10 iuav
ing a little more quietly and feeling a
little stronger. Her condition is so pre
carious that she may pass away within a
few hours should another spell occur.
This may happen at any time.
Midnight—Mrs. Harrison is no better.
She is very weak.
3 a. m.—Mrs. Harrison’s condition is
unchanged.

FLEW FINANCIAL KITES.
Merchants of Gotham With Big Inabili
ties and Serious Charges Against Them.
New Yobk, October 20.—C. Burkhal
ter & Co., grocers, assigned today. They
sold, it is said, $100,000 of their paper
within 30 hours of making the assign
ment, on the strength.of the statement
that they had $340,000 assets over and
above the liabilities. It is believed the
total liabilities will be very large. It is
alleged the firm surreptitiously disposed
of goods obtained on credit within the
last few days. Some of the creditors
were busy today getting out attachments
against their property. The creditors
say the failure was precipitated through
the sudden compulsory stoppage of
check kiting operations which Charles
Burkhalter has been carrying on in con
nection with a prominent director of a
recently organized East Orange, (N. J.),
national bank. Some of these checks
passed through the People’s Bank of
East Orange. The prompt action of
that bank caused the checks of the firm
to be protested by the Irving National
Bank, and the checks of accommodating
friends to be similarly served by the
bank on which they were drawn. At
tachments have been secured by two out
of town banks against the property of
the firm. —
John H. Burkhalter today said, “The
cause of the failure is inability to sell
our paper. IVe are doing a large and in
creasing business, buying for cash and
putting it down on our books to our cus
)
tomers on credit. This required a large
amount of money, and when we found
that we did not have the money on hand
to meet the obligations coming due, we
made the assignment.” Mr. Burlchalter
thought the firm’s liabilities would be
between $500,000 and $700,000. The as
sets, he said, are nominally larger than
the liabilities.
A creditor says Charles H. Burlchalter
borrowed money from him this week,
representing that the firm was doing a
large and prosperous business amounting
to $2,500,000 a year, and that the were
perfectly solvent and had surplus in the
business of over $300,000.
One creditor expresses the belief that
the liabilities will reach $1,000,000. The
assignee is Charles H. Fancher, presi
dent of the Irving National Bank.
PLAYED DOWN WENT M’GINTY.
A Survivor’s Story of the Toss of the Ship
W. A. Campbell.
San Francisco, Cal., October 20.—
Mate A. It. Sullivan of the ill-fated
American ship W. A. Campbell, which
was lost at sea, has arrived here from
Honolulu with six of the crew who es
caped with him.
Mite Sullivan, in a story of the wreck,
furnished the details of the coming on
of the hurricane off the coast of Mexico,
when the lumber laden ship ran before
the wind. The men tried to shorten
sail, but such was the fury of the gale
that they were powerless, and the deck
was soon littered with wreckage of spars
and masts. Finally it was decided to
abandon the ship, as it was apparent she
would sink. The water tanks were all
burst in, and only a small supply could
be secured from the donkey engine. The
captain’s young wife, who bore herself
bravely, and his boy, were put in the lar
ger boat with Captain Havener and 13
oauui o.
The captain, before he left the cabin,
sat down at the piano and played “Down
Went McGinty.” He decided to set fire
to the ship for fear she might wreck oth
er vessels, so as they shoved off the
torch was applied, and soon afterward
she hlew up, as there were explosives on
board.
“After staying together two days,”
says Sullivan, “I decided to push on, as
my boat was the swiftest. All hands
were put on short allowance, half con
densed milk and water and three biscuit
a day; canned meat at the morning meal,
add in the evening one tin of fruit was
used. On the 10th day our water gave
out and I put the men on the same al
lowance of wine. On the 14th day signs
of weakness began to show itself in sev
eral of the men.
Twenty days out and all our liquids
were exhausted. The men behaved very
well, with the exception of three Chilian
sailors. The men noticed that the Chil
ians seemed to stand the short allowance
of rations better than themselves, and it
was decided to ascertain the way they
did it. Watch was set, and during the
night they were discovered eating from
the rations of the supposed sleeping sail
ors. It was all I could do to save the
lives of these Chilians, as several of the
men drew their knives and swore to kill
the thieves. Finally, as I was stronger
than .they, I overpowered them and
threw their knives overboard. Just be
fore we sighted land these men became
very weak, and would have died had not
help come that day.”
APPLES PLENTY IN MAINE
And Scarce Elsewhere—A Good Prospect
for Maine Growers.
Springfield, Mass., October 20.—The
crop of winter apples now being harvest
ed is only 64 per cent of the average
yield in New England, according to spec
ial reports from 400 correspondents of
the New England Homestead. Maine
has nearly a full crop. The six states re
turn 300,000 barrels for export. A gen
eral shortage of apples in the West is in
dicated. Commission merchants are
trying to buy New England and New
York state apples for shipment. The
prices range from $1.50 to $2.50 a barrel.
There is a shortage also in England. The
Homestead also prints reports from an
army of correspondents concerning the
potato harvest in New England. The
acreage is 12 per cent less than last year
and the yield averages only $7 bushels to
the acre,' or fully one-fifth less than last
year. The prices range from 40 cents to
$1 per bushel. The farmers are holding

A PROCESSION WHICH WAS TEN
MILES LONG.
It Was Led by General Miles But tho
Military Had Small Part In It—Instead
All Sorts of Organizations Were In
Line—Clans of Bonnie Soots, Thousands
of Hardy Northmen and Many Sons of
Sunny Italy Were There.
Chicago, 111., October 20.—No mere
dancing affair, no social function, how
ever magnificent, could signalize to the
great masses the inauguration of the
Columbian week fetes. There must be
unending parade and band music to do
this. And today, in glittering sunshine
and bracing air, the people had both.
There was a parade 10 miles long which
should, and did, impress the great and
earnest masses, as also the dignitaries of
other nations and the big wigs of our
own, that the Columbian Exposition was
a thing of the near future. A Major
General of the United States was the
Grand Marshal, because he knew how to
do it well, and not because it was a
parade of troops. The people in town

the cannon to signal the start of the pro*
cession was not heard until 11 o’clock.
At the head of the parade came police
mounted. After them riding, from curb
to curb, came the detachment of
mounted police, under the command of
Lieut. Healy, and then a detaohment on
foot under Capt. Hartigan. Directly be
hind Bartigan’s men came Sousa’s
Marine Band, acting as escort for the
Mexican National Band. As quickly as
the last strains from one band died away
the other took it up, and from the begin
ning to the end of the march there was
Continuous Martial Music
at the head of the procession.
At the heels of the Mexican Band was
Major General Miles, the grand marshal
of the parade. Behind him clattered a
swarm of aides de camp clothed in black
coats. Many of them were offic
ers of the regular army, but the majority
were men in the peaceful walks of life".
The Chicago Hussars, headed by their
bugle corps, was the escort to the Mayor
of Chicago, the city council in carriages
and the governors of the different states,
each of whom was surrounded by a
brilliant staff. As governor after gov
ernor went by each was greeted with
cheers.
The second grand division was led by
the Independent Orde| of Foresters. 12,
000 strong. The dark green of Italy
flowed in a tidal wave behind the crimson
regalia of the Foresters, and the numer
ous Italian societies were cheered to the
echo as they went by. In their rear was
a gigantic float representing “Columbus
Discovering America,” showing the
Santa Maria approaching a rock-bound
coast upon which a number of Indians
stood, eagerly scanning the approaching
vessel. Behind the float tramped 300
Grecians wearing the decorations of their
nation’s flag—blue and white. Eight
thousand men of the Patriotic Order of
Sons of America were over an hour in
going past; their ranks were broken at
frequent intervals by bands, which
worked industriously at America’s na
tional music.
Then, in close, even ranks, came the
descendants of the men who had
Won the Battle of the Boyne
their persons and banners bearing knots
of their favorite orange ribbons.
Three thousand five hundred men of
the Chicago Turners’ Society, headed by
the National Commission of their order,
looked exceedingly well in their neat
uniforms of gray shirts, trousers aud
hats. They were followed by 700 men of
the Bohemian Turner societies, and
these by 500 German veterans.
There was a strong reminder of the
heather as 1200 bonnie Scots hove in
sight, every man in tartan. They were
decidedly a feature of the parade, as
were the 250 men of the Royal Scots
Regiment, clad in the Royal Stuart plaid
Fifty men, wearing the uniform of the
famous Black Watch Regiment, who
were next in line, were followed by a
seemingly endless string of plaids, rep
resenting every family of Macs between
Berwick and John O’Groat’s. The black
and gold of the Sons of St. George fol
lowed the Highlanders. Then came
rank after rank of Croatian and Polish
societies, containing in all about 2000
men. After them came ten times as
many ranks, and with its proportionate
number of men, and every man a Swede.
Then, in division after division, came
the organizations, religious, social and
political, which swelled the impressive
total to 80,000 marching men.
