GANS & ItLEIN WORRIED ABOUT OHIO, The Republican Managers Need the Services of McKinley and Sherman. Outside Dates Oanoelled in Order to Try to Save Their Own State. Alarm Foraker and l J.l UshakeL Hand Will Not Be Turned Loose on the People. CoLuMnDS, 0., Oct. 2.-The decision of the republican managers to rearrange Gov. McKinley's dates so as to give his own state the benefit of his limited tariff wis dom, indicates a condition that is recog nized with republican regret and misgiv ing. It has beens the custom in presiden tial years to elaim the state ae eafe beyond the possibility of a doubt, but never be fore were there so many eauses that mili. tate against the prospects of the party in "safe" Ohio, which is from this time until Nov. 8 to be treated as debatable ground. This situation is confessed by Secretary Foster, Senator Sherman and Goy. McKin lay, and the state committee, while the Foraker retainers and the league smile in quiet eorners. It was decided this week to cancel a large number of dates in order to keep Sherman and McKinley in Ohio the greater part of the time. Fuather it was arranged for a series of simultaneous ora torical efforts, and various sections of the state were selected for this con certed onslaught. Sherman is billed for twenty speeches in Ohio, a fact that is significant in view of the former statements that the state is always safe in a presidential year. Chair man Dick, who is an experiment in state politics, but a creation of liberman and Hahn, has adopted the method of consult ing with the oandidates for congress as to whom they desire to address them, and it is interesting to note that so far Foraker has not had a definite assignment, except that given him by the league, whose head he is. There was a fiat attempt to show him loyal after his villainous harangue and vile personal abuse of Cleveland, but republicans who insist that the campaign be fought upon issues and not personalities were only disgusted and oonvinced that the less Foraker is called upon the better will the Harrison chancel be. Foraker's har rangue ws an indication to the committee that if called upon he would persistently vent his spleen and recall the famous rebel flag buncombe and other self-gtorifying incidents, and it was thought best to take him out of the campaign unless he will consent to dis cuss ie platform, and not drive votes away f:oum larriasoi by liillriueaatedi rected toward Cleveland. Col. W. A. Tay lor, the democratic candidate for secretary of state, is convinced that he has a fighting chance, and so advised tie committee this uork. Ilis belief has strengthened the democratle faith, and the committee went to woit at oiee with tdditional helr toi dis tribute campaign litersta e. Then the re p ublicans deciued that it would be best to keep the orators at home and attempt. at least, to carry the state for Harrison. The democrats are taking hold with a hope, and as Ohio is distinetly a patronage state and neither Harrison nor McKinley has done his work in such a way as to deserve the commendation of those whose itching palms are always outstretched, the result cannot be foretold. ATFER THE "FLOATER,." The New York Scheme That Rivals the "Hiocks of Five." NEW YORl, 0et. 2.-The "campaign of education" which Chair man Hackr'tt, of the republican state executive committee, be gan by means of his "green goods circular" was outlined on a very comprehensive scale. The woi k was to be done by wholesale. The "confidential" circular was designed to bring to state headquarters the names of enough "floaters" to change the iesult in this state if they could be "induced" to vote the republican ticket. It was a larger job than the one which I)udley attempted by his "blocks of five" circular. for that was outlined simply to b:ing Harrison's plural ity in Indiana up to the 10,000 mark, ac cording to Dudley's own estimate in his no torious letter. Chairman Hackett was at tempting to "induce" enough "floaters" to vote the republican ticket to overcome the entire - democratio ma jority below Harlem river. As nearly as can be estimated at republioan state head quarters, 40,000 of the "c nfidontial" oiroclars were sent out. The presses on which the instrument of corruption was being printed were astill going, and the "areen goods" document was still being run off at a morry iate, wlhen, through some person who evidently could not "keep a secret," the whole plot was exposed, and, temporarily at least, the work stopped. The 40,000 copies were scattered t-. all pat.t of the state. Wherever, in oity or oountry, there was evidence of ti5' existence of "a demoerat who could be induoned" to vote for Benjamin Harrison, the circular was sent, It went, as nearly as can be ascer tained, into the hbann of men who are icomparatively new in the bneinies of prao tical politic. In makitig up the list of cor respondents who weore to be asked to help the state committee in its "confidential" effort to "induce" democrats to clhange their politics, great care was exeroised. 'T'he ability to keep a secret was enjoined not only on thoserwhlro were to send in the names of the demoorats, but on those who mapped out the saoheme aid furnished to Harkrtt the names of men who would probably be useful in the "par ticular service" teequired. It wars not ex pected that each of tihe ciirulars would yzeld a reply, for Chairman ilnckett has had expos ionce esrouogh to know that a con siderable number of persons, under tIe most careful iruninu of tte list, would pay no attention to the circular. In additiron to the men who toss into the waste basket any printed circnular, there would be a coo sist,-rable number who would hesitate to en goge in any seoret and miysterious politicsal genre of the urnture indicated by Charrman Hackett's letter. Ieariun these facts in mind, republicans say that at the most Chairman Haekett could have expected to receive from the 40,000 oct ies of the "green goods circular" the names of not moure that 20,000 "floaters." Bot even so wholesale a seherue of cor ruption ts this has called the attention of republicann and democrats to what is cou slosetl a seriousthing in the history of politics. "Buppose Chairman Hackett stirtelrent that he wanted the nams, ulumple for the purposes of a campulain of educs ton tie naccepted as true," It wris arued, "the circular has no excuse fot its exiut ence. It is oleatrly and undo niably an attempt to introduce an element of mysitlery and secrecy into thb, camnpaign. which cannot be defendedn. 'lie names of ena who are to be attacked ly some meann of 'inducement' nre to be gortten togethesr secretly. The circular says, in escot, that the men must not be told that the comumit taee hen desigrns on them of any sort. It asks thit their iames, ulnknuowtr to tihemn srelves, shall be collected and sent, under the injunction of suoreey, to the state com mittee, to be used in some way without thoir knowled. OClearly the eirenlar of Chairsman askett reveals a plot against every one of the men whse names are pissed on the secret roll in the state som mittee room. It is a conspiracy againt the rightof every citize to think and set for himself. It is a violation of the spirit of the ballet-reform law. It is an interfer sene in the independent expression of the voters, which tois nwarranted on the part of the men who do the work and unjust to the men on whom the scheme is worked." RBIPUILIGANS REALIZE THE TRIUTH. New York Is Going foer Cleveland and to Retire Frank llscoook. WA*rOmoTON, Oct. 2.-Even the Harrison chieftains in this city are compelled to ad mit that things look shaky for their men in New York. They now concede that the democrats in New York are doing what they said would be done, working together for the election of Mr. Cleveland and for a legislature to choese a snucesser to Mr. Hiscook, the beautiful. T'he republieans are somewhat late in accepting this view of the situation, and, as they hoped against hope, they are cor espondingly de spondent. The democrats realized very soon after the Minneapolis nominations were made that there would be no split in the republican ranks. They knew that Platt was oat for spoils, and that Harrison would be compelled to make very material concessions to him. They therefore foresaw early in the game that a praetically united republican party would be met at the polls in November. Having so early assimilated the real condition of affairs in the enems's ranks they have not now, as the republicans have, to adjust themselves to the situation. For these rsa sons the democrats in Washington are in a mush more contented and bheerful frame of mind than the Harrison outfit. PATRIOTI5M AND DBMOCRACY. An Irish-Amerlcan Paper on the Datles of That Race. Naw Yosa, Oct. 2.-The Irish-American union, an organization of Irish-Americans of this city, to-day issued an address, stat ing that "prompted by the republican party many citizens of their race have been tempted to form Irish republican clubs, to advocate and, if possible, to convince other citizens of their race that in aiding the re publiean party they helped Irish interests," The address says the futility of such talk is apparent to any thoughtful citizen, and that it is not alone unamerican but un wise that any needy citizens should be guided or controlled in the exercise of their duties by any other consideration than a patriotic duty to America. "In performing that duty," says the address, "we believe we can best do so by supporting the demo I cratic party." Will Not Talk, but Will Vote. CnHIAoG. Oct. 2.-Judge Gresham will neither confirm nor deny the story which was printed here this morning to the etffect that he intends to vote for Grover Cleve I land. He was seen by a representative of the Assooiated press to-night and refused I nbsolntely to talk on the subject, answering all questions with "I will not say a word." q Bolted the Fuslon. TorPKA, Kas., Oct. 2.-The Democrat, which has heretofore been recognized as the organ of fusion of the democrats and pop ulists, has bdlted the movement on the grounds that it is controlled by a set of Sselfish office-seekers. lIE KEPT THE ENGAGEMENT. A Story About the Campaigning of Col. Thomas H. Benton. At the Grand hotel yesterday was an old gentleman, who, during the senatorial career of Thomas H. Benton, of Missouri, was one of his personal friends. His name is Samuel W. Carroll. Formerly he was a resident.of Mexico, Meo., but he now claims Sp. ingfield, Ill., as his home. During acon versation with a Sentinel reporter, Mr. Car roll related a number of incidents connected with the career of Col. Benton. One of these was illusetrative of his coulage and daring. The colonel had been making a number of speeches throughout central and north era Missouri. He finally arrived in that portion known as the "old Platte purchase" and spoke to a gathering of his constituents in what is new Platte county. The follow ing day he had an appointment to fill near St. Joseph. The only way he could reach there was on horseback. The rivers and streams throughout the whole country were higih. Tie Platte river, which was a raging torrent, he would be forced to cross. Fearing for his safety, his friends tried to persuade him to allow the appointment to go by default rather than risk his life. Blut the colonel would not listen to them. He finally started, accompanied by a stout negre and a gentleman whose name Mr. Carroll could not recall. Arriving at the banks of the river anl witnessing the dan ger to be ineaurred by attempting to cross it, the negro refused to go farther. Col. lieuton was exasperated with the fellow, but instead of turning back he plunged his horse into the stream at a favorable point, and after a severe struggle he was carried I across, but he was soaking wet. He rode fifteen or twenty miles farther, and ar rived at his destination just in time to so sure a dry suit of clothing and to attend and speak at the meeting.-Indianapolis saentinel. THEY BOOMED THE CONCERN. When They Got Through With It They lnrd the HNulk of the Cash.

A statislcian of the German government I has some to the rescune of those persons who do not share the widespread superstition that Friday is the most unlucky day of the week. A short time ago he decided to make a scientific investigation of this queetion, using for the purpose, amonu other things. the records of the department of comnlpul eory ilnn ance. The most fatal or on fortunate week day, accordinug to the iuove tigator is not Friday, but Mondav.

A Total Failure of Crops Leads to Great Suffering in South. ern Mexico. Speculators Advance the Prices of Food on the Starving People. The Hob Loots the Oraneries Despite the Pollee and the Guns of the Soldiers. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Oct. 2.-Homer Fin ley, who for the past six years has been in business in the city of Morelia, Mexico, ar rived to-day and gave a vivid account of the famine riot in that city last Sonday. Morelia is the eapital of the state of Miob oacan, and one of the most beautiful cities of southern Mexico, but several thousand poor people are on the verge of starvation, owing to the total failure of crops and the scarcity of other food supplies. When the famine was threatened some months aego several wealthy merchants of Morella con tracted for large quantities of corn in the United States, enough to supply the suffer ing people. bpeculators put up prices and extorted what little money the poor people had in a short time. For the past two months the sufering has been intense and mrany deaths have occurred. The streets became thronged with beggars, and men. women and children made heart rending appeals for help. This kept up until last Sunday, when the starving horde organized themselves into a mob, and driven by desperation, began a concerted attack upon the food stores of the city. Fully 6,000 people were in the mob and the police were utterly powerless to stop them. Two regiments of federal cav alry and one of infantry, stationed at More lia, were called out to quell the riot, but this only added to the desperation of the starving people. The soldiers opened fire and one man was killed and several wounded. Tie mob looted the granaries and then dispersed. Finley looks for a repetition of the trouble. DEATH OF RENAN.

BUTTE, Oct. 2.-[-pecial.]-The death rate for the month of September has be come somewhat alarming, being higher than at any time since last December, when the smoke was so bad. The total number of deaths in the three-mile limit were fifty the past month, or fifty-two for the county. In September a year ago, the deaths num bered forty-six. The great increase in the number of deaths over the number in the a previous months of this year is not consid ered by physicians a very serious matter. September is usually in Butte the month when the death rate becomes highest. The e increase is attributed to the great mortality ramong infants during the month. There were ffteen deaths from cholera infantum during September and there were five still born cases. Deducting the deaths from t chilera iniantaus would leavse e th orttality but little more than usual. Among other anuses of death were: Typhoid fever, three; aeeident, three; suicide, two; diph theria, one; pneumonia, three. A COUNTY SEAT WAR. It Has Caused Trouble in Nebraska. and May Cause More.

Butte Got the First But Helena Easily Took the Second Game. BorrT, Oct. 2.-(Special.]-Helena cap tored the championship of the second series of the Montana base ball league to day by winning the last game of the season between Butte and Helena. Two games were played, the home team winning the first. In that game Helena got on a bat ting streak in the first two innings, home runs being made by Huston and George, and a three-bagger by Huston. After that Caplinger settled down and Helena could not touch him. The only other .un made by Helena was a home ran by Hernan in the seventh. Butte got on a strong batting streak in the sixth and seventh innings, pounding the life out of Dunning, who had previously seemed invincible. These in nings gave the game to Butte. Munyan was ruled out of the game for back talk to the umpire. The score by innings: Butte................ 01220 3 11-18 Helena....... ..... 350000 1 00-9 flite-Butte 13, Heluna 11. Errors-Butte 2, Helena 7. Batteries-Carlmnuer and Brennan: Dunning and Lobeck. The second game started off very evenly, neither side scoring until the third inning, when Lucid, the Butte pitcher, became very wild, and by hitting one batsman giv ing two others bases on balls, and throwing wildly to first, gave Helena tive runs. This was really sufficient to win the game, but Helena had the chnmpionship in its eye and couldn't afford to take any chances. So in the sixth inning Huston smashed out another home run, driving two men ahead of him, and adding three runs to Helenn's credit. Strathers made a run in the seventh on his two-bagger, a wild throw by White, and a sacrifice. Butte made all its runs in the fifth inning on a base on balls, a single, Marr's two-base hit, and Brennan's long sacrifice to center. In the last game uMn yan r;layed auain but was badly spiked by Strathers and forced to retire again. The game was called at the end of the seventh Inning. The score by innings: Butte.... ................ 0 0 00 3 0 0- 8 Helena ..................0 0 5 0 0 31- 9 Hits-Butte 9; Helena 6. Errors-Butte 6; Helena 3. Batteries-Lucid and Mun. yan; Monday and Lobeck. It was arranged to-night that the flye final games between Butte, the winner of the first series, and Helena, the winner of the second series, should be played as fol lows: Wednesday and Thursday of this week at Helena; Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Butte. This gives Batte three of the five games. Phllipsburg and Missoula Split Even. Par'tisnunai, Oct. 2.-[Special.]-Two games were played here to-day between the Philipsabrgs and Miasoulas. The visitors won the first by a score of three to nothing after a hard fought battle.
