It is impossible at tb hour (3 a. tn.)
to furnish poi.tive and unequivocal

Tbe democrats elaim "ew York, In

in tbe electoral college, t ut tbere is
yet reason to belief tbal tbe first
returns are not couclusiTe, although
it is probable that Grorer Cleveland
will be tbe next jirrsdent.
la the state the returns do not indi
cate with any degree of certa.ntr what
the result will be, although, Respite
tbe claims of tbe democrats, tbe state
is believed to be reclaimed from the
democrats in all department.
In tbe county tbe returns are so late
and tbe figures so complicated that
Tnc H tn ali does not feel justified in
making any prediction or estimate.

CKU4U ASARCHT.
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

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

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.
Witwoct closely scrat niting the
totals it aprosrs that the Duke of Kent
succeeds b;tnelf.
M. MrKsrinr will please take the
k ndergarteti m out of the wit.

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. The
death sentence passed upon him was
commuted to life imprieonment, but
he was released after a few years' con
finement. 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.

Ixi0!, Nov. 8. The Times this
morning prints a three-column article
recounting the dynamite outrages and
protesting against the cranting of am
nesty to the men wno were engaged in

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
