Ia calling attention to tbe recent hostile demonstration of the anarchists tbe Chicago Journal significantly says: The anarchists learn slowly. Tbere came a group of these people to this country, settled ia Chicago, declared that affairs here were not properly con ducted, and terminated their unlawful acts by tbe commission of wholesale murder. The Americaa treatment of the anarchists was simple. A number of them were banged. "In tbe hanging of the anarchist was demonstrated plainly whatwill happen to such persons in tbe United States when tbey seek by force to overthrow the institutions established by reason ing people. The illustration was forci ble enough, certainly, but the remain ing anarchists seemingly learned noth ing. They slunk from sight for a time, but are gradually reappearing, are be coming defiant again, and bare, seem ingly, a reai iaith in tre eventual over throw of existing forms of government. Tney bare begun tbe construction of a monument to their 'martyrs.' It is now reported that a new "re vong" circular has been Uistr.buted and t.iat murderous fools of the Spies typ9 are agiia initin their dreaming dupes to reckless deeJs. There is but one courts for the community to pursue undfrthe circumstance. Hu manity mult protect itself against anarchists a against wolves and otner wild baits The ravmg wretches rr.uat to prevented from doing any barm, if po.t'e. If at any time tbey inert1 J for ttw moment they must be ilfiit w.ta as wolves ar. It is a prao I Til finest cn, and self-prrservation is tns F.rt law. Chicago began well and rau-t ccnt.aue its record if the need arise. WELCOMED tmoc. Yesterday's election in this city paed off so quietly that a stranger w.tam otir gatos would n A have known that it m progress. There were no scenes of disorder anywhere. Uncon-jn-!OU!y, tut nevertheless effectively, tti solemnity cf the great contest was brought home to every man that en teral the poli.ng places to deposit his ballot. The change from the former esc.tements and passionate demontra t jni was s marked that the strikers ami heelers retired to thr horn in i g i-'t twt voting. For th.s changi the people ar indebted to tiie Aatra l;a svtru of voting. Ey this system th evils tut cnc corrupted elections bar teo removed. There is neither er;ong ncr intimidation, Kvery man is at liberty to vote w.tno'itfeir or rtrint. O ice i3?;de the booth ail cmssderat ons fore go to tr and unbought ballot are etTectually blotted out. Ta voter sunds alone with bis conscience and if he will vote an incor rupt, bie ballot there is none to per s is.le or frighten him to d- other. w.. Th most commendable achievement cf the n' system is the removal of ih wsrd-ae!r and poliucal striker, li s oecupatioa is xene. He can neither I u'ldox voters nor blackms.l csndi vlit?. Once a terror to botii be is now er.ng'.ig iyophant without where to p'y h.s ce;ar:ous call ng nor with ;-iir t ted the bacies nominee. t huO'.iM'h tri that larg -jn-t of m-ne t 're eirHrd't ir this City t' r t itii ele ion fipvMt, j it tint is;: nub-, y tr-i tUt ro suctfal alKiiipts to fjirchae votes outright were eoasumrnaUd. Tbe relief to can didates is lmmeasuraMe. It U possible now for a coaparativIy poor man to ruu for o2ice. Formerly the question was not "Is be capable and honest?" but "ba be a fad?" Tnis is therefore a welcome innovation to candUateand voter alike. KXULUU LAS it KirORM, l:scuing the Eugiiin demand for land reform the Toat of Chicago says ; English tenant farmers have begun to cl;uor loudly for legulative inter ference in their Ubalf. They find tUeuitelvve io a very unenviable plight. A succrsaion of bid harvests has left many of them without m-acs to pay tneirrtnt, but the landlords' agents are demanding that they pay up as promctly as before or get out. Tbe English tenant farmers have noticed that the attention of the imperial parlumntbas bten very largely taken up fur nearly a quarter of a century with Irish affairs, and that the result has been a very material improve ment in the condition of tbe Irish ten ants. Tbey are now demanding that some attention be given them and that some f the relief that has been given their Irish compatriots bo extended to them. First of all they want to bo made as secure in their holdings as the Irish farmer cow is. If stress of the times compels them to bo delinquent they do not want to bo turned out the first day in the term. Should disaster con tinue to attend them, so that it is evident that it will be impossible for them to relieve themselves, they want to be assured of some leturn for the improvements they or their fath ers before them have put upon the lands they have tilled, and to have the right to sell these improvements to the highest bidder and not have to turn them over to the landlord or his creature at his own valuation. Now that the battle is fought and the victory earned, The IIerild re tires from the field of politics until an other struggle is on "with malice to ward none," and extends cordial con gratulations to the people that we are assured m the result that no American interest is imperiled. The Herald has conscientiously endeavored to support the principles and candidates of the party. Its lukewarmness towards one of tho party candidates may seem to have been without justification, but it is sufficient to say that without a serious and solemn provocation no newspaper can, or will, ifford to withhold its vig orous support from its party'i candi dates. One of the reforms that needs in slant attention is tho appointment of quick-witted and accurate, election clerks and inspectors. Tbe delay in the count in this city last evening is attributable largely to the thick-head-edness of men on the returning boards. These men were appointed not because of fitness, but as a political favor. If accurate and alert accountants were put in these positions the re turns would all be completed by 12 o'clock. This suggestion is commend ed to the common council. Ip the whole republican county tick et or a majority of it is elected the credit for the result will belong to the candidates themselves. The county committee through its very efficient secretary and executive committee did noble work, and the individual mem be. s in season and out joined with The Herald in making a vigorous and un compromising fight for it.' On the whole it was a great day for the county ticket. Among other amusing features of the campaign was the sudden and unex pected vigor displayed by The Demo crat after every possible chance of ac complishing any good for its party had been dissipated. Its conservatism dur ing the campaign made no friends, and possibly no enemies. A newspaper without earnest and energetic enemies is in the secondary stage of journalistic paresis. Yon will not hear the familiar "1 told you to" from the fellows that knew it all and 1-st. But deliver us from the fe lows that bad a "present in:ent" and won ; alio the fellows that "figured the thing out" ; also the fel lows tnat went broke and want to bor row "a five for a day or two." A pout the only glory the craven and treacherous Eagle can ges out of this campaign is in the re election of At 8. White. Its lukewarm support cf the county ticket and the grand success the ticket achieved, makes tbe old bird look like a singed chicken. Sheriff McQueen yesterday swore that he was a citizen of the United Mates and deposited bis vote. If Mr. Mc Queen had made such a declaration a month aeo he would have done him self greater credit. Siirairr MKiniM is defeated. His doubted citizenship led him to ihe slaughter. The Herald wat the only newspaper ia the city to force tbe fight on bim, and having won, itfeelt m-ghty good over it. At leat$lOO.OOOehangd bandsinthis city on the, result. Tbe betting wat at no time spirited but no "bluffs'' were permitted to go unchallenged to be used as campaign arguments. From the latest avatlable and reliable figures the elation of a congressman in this district is in doubt. Tbe reoub Iican presidential elector is elected by a handsome plurality. Wrix, if it must b- fmr years more of Orover, there no help for it. Tut it's a grand good thirg the McKinley bul is ont of term's way.

BLEW UP TWO MEN And Wrecked a Paris Police Station. LATEST WORK OF ANARCHISTS A Box of Dynamite Found in the Street and Explodes While Being Ex amined Paris Terrorized. Loxoos, Nov. 8.A d spatch to the Ileuter Telegra u company, from Pans, state that at 11 o'clock this morning the policemen found cuUide of the office of the Caruiaux Mining Cumpany an iron vesael winch bad a suspicious appearance. They took the Vvs&ol to Uie police station, where it exploded witu terrible effect. Two po licemen were intiantly killed and an other severely wounded. The iatenor of the station bouse was a wreck. Tbe woodwork was demolished and tbe windows shattered, and fragments were blown into the street. Tbe explosion was produced by dynamite. The out rago is believed to have been com muted by anarchists who wished to in jure officials of the Carmaux company on account of their course during tbe recent strike. COMPLAINT BY CANADA. American Officers Take a Prisoner Through Diminion Territory. Ottawa, Ont.. Sor. 8. Correspond ence has taken place recently between thedomimon authorities, through her majesty's charge d'affaires at Wash ington and the United Mates govern ment, with regard to a breach of inter national law by United States citizens. Iu May last United Mates officers con veyed a Britiih subject named Emer son Omar, who had been arrested for bigamy at Houlton, Maine, to Calais, Maine, a journey of ninety miles, the greater portion of wbicn was made through the province of New Bruns wick. The p?rmi6iou of the Cana dian government to conduct Omar through Canada in the custody of the United States officers was not asked and the facts were duly reported to the authorities at Ottawa. Wnen the at tention of th? United Slates govern ment was called to the matter the sec retary of stato caused inquiries to be made and a reply has just been re ceived from fcjecretary Foster in which he recognizes the impropriety cf an American officer taking a prisoner through any portion of her majtsty's domiuions without obtaining the pre vious consent of tbe authorities and expressing regret for tho occurence. The opinion prevails here tnat Omar ought to be liberated by tte United States government, his case being much on a par with that of the boy CJa e, who was liberated from a Canadian re formatory by the dominion govern mental the request of the American authorities a short time ago. CRIMINAL FROM INFANCY. Thrilling Career of a Danish Murderer Who Meets Justice. Copenhagen, Nov. 8. Hans Nielsen, the notorious murderer, was hanged today. He bad a remarkable record. When about eight years old he set fire to a farmnouse. Before he readied his majority he was a murderer.

Hardly in citizen's elothes again, he committed several bold burglaries, in the last of which he killed the man be was trying to rob. Again he was sen tenced to death and again the sentence was commuted to penal servitude for life. His last crime was the murder of his jailer. All these crimes were interspersed with numerous burglaries, highway robberies, assaults and petty thefts. He never earned an honest penny in bis life and has never paused in his career of crime except when he was in prison. HURLED INTO DEATH.

NO CAUSE FOR THE KILLING Two Employes of the Hotel Cadillac Have a Quarrel That En is in the Pcatn of One. IETtu3tT, Nov. 8. And ttill another cold-blo-ded and deliberate murder, the third within almost as many days, must be added to the current record of crime. At about 4 o'clock yesterday afteruoou, in tbe basement eugiue roonif tbe Hotel Cadillac, a porter of the house named Edward Liddell, shot and killed Charles . baiter, the engi neer. The murderer is an Englishman, a recent arrival, who was been ea. ployed in the baggage room of the hotel onlv a few weeks. He gives his age as 33 years, and has roomed at No bi Wayne street, while taking his meals w ith the help at tbe hotel. II is victim was a man of 35 to 40, and resided with his wile and only child at No. Hi) four teenth avenue. He bad been tmployed as engineer of the hotel for the past two years, and is highly spoken of by Mr. Graves, the landlord. Tne circumstances of the affair are very plain, tbere being ample witnesses to every pnase of the crime from the beginning of the quarrel between the two men to us tragic termination. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Liddell was called to take the place of the boy running the elevator. A few minutes later hngineer Salter, accom panied by Harry McDonald, a steam titter tn the employ of bamuel Dixon & Co., desired the use of the elevator to take them to an upper floor where Mr. McDonald was engaged at work on the pipes. Liddell, for some unknown reason, refused to descend with the el evator to tbe basement, and Mr. .Salter theu seized the cable and brought the car down. In the car a quarrel occur red between Halter and Liddell as to the former's right to use tbe elevator, which led to blows. Mr. McDonald separated the two men, and eeems to have. regarded the affair as of very blight consequence. Having shown McDonald the work on tbe pipes that needed the fitter's attention, Mr. Sal ter descended to the engine room again. In this room there were three other men, James Preston, the fireman; Ja cob Zerja, an employe of the Detroit Sheet Metal and Brass works, and W. K. Wilson, an electrical worker in the employ of the Free Press. hot Id tu Htad. Mr. Zerja gives the following account of the affair: "I was standing tome twenty feet from Eugineer&alter when I saw Liddell ascend to Jhe basement and pause. Salter was near the boilers and was talking to a man who soon after went out. As soon as Baiter had fin ished his conversation with the man, Liddell approached, laid his band on Salter's shoulder and spoke to him. I did not bear anything that was said, but it could only have been a few words when Liddell carried his hand to his pistol pocket. Walter jumped and caught bis hand, but Liddell jerked away, draw a revolver and bred. SalUr fell to tae floor. It was all done in a moment. I seized Liddell and he said: " You don't need try to take hold of me; I'm not g ing to try to escape.' "I said: 'No, I guess you won't.' Mr. Wilt n then came up and took Liddell's pistol. We conducted him up-stairs and out on tbe sidewalk, where we turned him over toan officer." BROKE HIS NECK. ' Ben Cousins, a negro kills Smith McKoy with a cue. Niles, Mich.', Nov. 8 Only tbe lack of leader prevented a lynching here last evening. Ben Cousins, a negro, killed Smith McKoy in Patrick O'Connell's saloon, breaking his neck by striking him with a billiard cue. i McKoy is a well-known farmer, 23 years of age, a married roan and re sides near Dowagiac Last evening he came here with an excursion to attend a democratic rally. About nine o'clock he was playing billiards in tne saloon. Ben Cousins came in. Tbe two were entire strangers. The negro is said to have provoked a quarrel without any apparent cause. Finally he struck McKoy with a cue. The latter fell with his neck broken. Immediately several other colored men pimped on the dead victim, kicking him in the face m a terrible manner. Cousins is reported to be an extreme ly quarrelsome fe, low, and it is said that be had been drinking heavily. As soon as the murder became known a wild mob gathered, and repealed cries of "Lynch bim," and "Lt's go eet the nigger and nil him with holes.' were heard. The crowd stayed around tbe jail till after midnight, and Cous ins may be said to have naa a narrow escape. With him were arrested two other negroes, one of them being Jesse Carter. Tbe report was spread among the large crowd of democrats in town that be had been murdered because he hur rahed for Cleveland, and tnis report is responsible for the dispoition many showed to take the law in their own bands. Tbe city is perfectly quit this morning. STOCKBRIUOS CHALLENGED. Michigan Senator Loses His Vote tn Unfolded Ballot in His Hand. Kalamazoo, Nov. 8. This forenoon Senator F. B.
