WAsRnenmrTO, Nov. 8.-Aeting Attorney
General Aldrich, in a statement touohing
the authority of United States deputy mar
shals to supervise elections, says all per
sons who attempt to interfere with them
will bring themselves within the scope of
the federal statutes, regardless of whether
they are acting under any state or muniol
pal law. In view of this fact he says he
does not believe anybody will attempt to
interfere with them, but any such inter
ference will be rigorously prosecuted.
The statement says the attention of the
department has been called to the matter
through certain alleged instructions to po
lice and state officers in Alabama, Arkansas
and New York with reference to their con
duct towards United States marshals at the
polls. It declares the marshals will be there
as peace officers, instructed not to allow
discrimination for or against either party,
but to secure an honest vote and a fair
An honest ballot and a fair count is what
the law was designed to provide, and its
constitutionality has been so strongly up
held and the paramount power of the fed
eral government so clearly asserted by the
supreme court, that it would be idle to dis
cusos that question. The idea that the
United States is not as much an object of
the people's love and patriotism as any
state is utterly mischievous, although im
plied in the circulars referred to. A peace
officer of the United States who seeks to
prevent illegal voting no more invades the
rights of American citizen than does a
peace officer of the state.
It denies the doctrine of the suprem
acy of the state over the United States in
the matter of elections and says the im
pression that the federal government is a
foreign power should be obliterated. It
says the statement that section 2021 is the
only section authorizing the appointment
of deputy marshals, and that therefore snobuch
appointment can only be made in cities of
20,000 and upwards, is not the view held by
the attorney general or himself. Nor has
such a view been held by previous attorney
'Ihe question whether deputy marshals
have the right to be within the guard rail
of polling places is answered in the attorney
general's circular of Oct. 11, 1892, in the
affirmative. As will be observed, section
5522, revised statutes, prescribes a penalty
of imprisonment and fine against any per
son who, with or without authority of any
state or municipality, interferes with or
prevents the marshal, or general or special
deputies, from the performance of any duty,
or hinders or prevents the fall and free
access and earess to and from any such
places of registration or poll of election, or
to or from any room where any such regis
tration or election or canvass of votes may
be had.
'The statutes are so clear and explicit
that 1 really cannot see any room for dis
cussion. I do not believe any attempt will
be made to violate this law or earry out the
revolutionary and dangerous policy an
nounced in the dispatches referred to. If
such acotion is attempted, of course t:ouble
will come, as the same law prescribes pen
alties against any deputy who fails to do
his duty. hoch results all good citizens,
irrespective of party, should deplore, and
the consequences would fall upon those
whose rash course led to such an unwar
ranted resistance to the power of the fed
eral government, a power which the su
preme con t of the United htates has de
clared paramount when a member of con
gress or a presidential elector is to be voted
for, to any state law or athority upon this
"1 will add that this is not a partisan
question and they are not good citizens in
my opinion who seek to make it one. No
party can justly hope to deserve or win suc
cess by defiance or violation of the laws of
the land. However that may be, our duty
is plain. 'the laws must be enforce,.

ELMsRIA. N. Y.. Nov. 3.-In reply to the
circular issued by Wm. F. Sheehan, of the
democratic executive committee, regarding
the rights and unties of deputy United
States marshals at the polls on election
day, United States Marshal Baxter has is
sued a letter of instructions to deputies of
the northern district of New York, which
he declares to be equally applicable every
where. In it he says: "William F. Sheehan.
chairuman of thedemocrutli state campaign
committee has issued a oircnlar in which he
asesumes to state the rights and duties of
special deputy marshals. As the cilcular is
calcolated to mislead you in the discharge
of your duties, and as its statements are
contrrry to the clearly defined proviaions
of the federal statutes, it seems advisable
for me to aidd to the instructions already
civeu you. Sheehan, in his ciruoolar.
nays United States marshals have no more
ribht than any other voter to be within the
gun:.rd rait of tollingl places, and in support
of this statement cites a decision in a cor
t:(rm case by Justice BIrewer. of the supreme
court. The case cited is clearly not in
toillt, a4 it was one where there were no
IUnited Slates supervisors of election at the

where there are Ollited SItnes supervisore

is the duty of the mnarshal to enforoe all of

his lawful right, when necessary, to

it is his duty to arrest any person, no mat

provides that you are exempted from arrest

to arrest and punishment by the United

INDIArAPOI.It, Nov. 3.-Attorney.General
Miller, now here, says he does not think the
elroular sent out from democratic head
quarters In New York, counselling resist
ance to the use of rooms by United States
marshals within 150 feet of the polls, is
really meant in earnest, but that it is merely
a bit of oamnpaign literature sent out to

He said marshals would be sent only where
applied for and needed, and believed all
would respect their authority.
Has Secured no Advance In Wages the Past
Th ree Years.
Labor Commissioner Hall authorizes the
following quotasion from his forthcoming
report. "Increases in wages since 1890 have
been very general, with one exceptional de
crease, no change having occurred in the
past two years, except in the case of cabinet
makers, who obtained a reduction of hours
without change of wages. Various build
ing trades secured similar reduntions some
two years ago, and other trades have, by
means of strong labor unions, secured an
advance in wages daring the last two years
amounting to from eight to 20 per cent.
The cooper trade shows a greater loss. not
so much in rates paid as in loss of time
through the introduction of machinery,
and horse collar makers follow in the same
manner and in some eases wages were vol
untarily reduced to prevent the inroads of
machinery. The decrease of earnings in
their trade amounted to 1234 per cent dar
ing the decade. The sharpest advance was
made in the wages of unekilled or ordinary
labor. The wages of workingmen es
pecially in the lines of protected industries
have not been advanced in the past thee

Mad at Their Queen.
MADRID, Noe. 3.-Tlhe populace of Gren
ada are greatly incensed at the refusal of
Queen Regent Christina to visit their city
with King Alfonso at assist at the unveiling
of the statue of Columbus. A mob gath
ered and destroyed the decorations and re
viewing stands. Finally some one shouted
"Down with the government!" and "Long
live the republic!" The mob took up the
cry and a serious outbreak was Imminent,
when the civil guards charged on the mob,
laying right arid left with their swords. A
number were seriously wounded and thirty
taken prisoners. The refusal of the queen
to be present was due to her desire to spare
King Alfonso fatigue after his recent ill
ness. In consequence of the disturbance
the mayor of Grenada resigned, and mem
bers of the cabinet will not be present at
the dedication. Civil Governor Madrie re
signed in consequence of riots in Prado
growing out of the prohibition of an open
air concert. It is expected that the mayor
will aso resign.

NEW YdIaK, Nov. 8.-[8peoiall--Betting
on the presidential result turned to-night
decidedly in favor of Cleveland. James
Mahoney offered $50,000 even that Cleve
land would be elected president. No re
publican appeared to back the Har
rison bluff that had been made all
week. Mahoney then offered $10,000against
$9,000 on Cleveland's election. The bet
was taken by George Wheelock, of St.
Louis. There were several large wagers at
two to one on New York and ten to seven
on Indiana, all in favor of Cleveland.
There were also bets that Cleveland
would earry New Jersey, New York, Con
necticut and Indiana. The republicans are
demoralized and a great deal of the Frick
floater fund is tied up here against the
spare cash of New York merchants and
sporting men. Over $200,000 was bet to

At the great Tammany meeting to-night,

The Great Maryland Politician Says Cleve

NEw Your, Nov. 3.-The announcement
that Tammany Hall would, hold another
mass meeting to-night to ratify the nomi
natiroht of Cleveland and Steveuson at
traoted an immense throng of people to the
wigwam. The same scenes as witnessed at
lTammany's meeting last week were re
peated this evening. Before seven o'clock
ipeople began to gather and before the
speaking ,egan the block from t hid to
Fourth avenues and from Fourteenth to
Fifteenth streets was blocked with people.
The streets was ablaze with gas, electricity
and firewor;k. Practically ten meetings
were going on at once. Senators Eustis
and Carlisle were the p:lncipal speakers
of the main meeting. Joseph J.
O'Donoughue, as chairman, opened
the meeting with a brief speech.
A letter from SanatorGorman to Richard
Croker was read. The senator expresses
regret at his inability to be present at the
meeting, but says he cannot permit the
occasion to pass without saying "that the
completeness of your union and the manly
and eloquent utterances of Senator Hill,
and your enorts and enthusiasm have made
it absolutely certain that the electoral vote
of New York will be cast for the nominees
of the democratic party. In other states
heretofore considered doubtful democrats
have taken courage from your example and
will show up on the day of election that
they have learned from you how to achieve
victory. 'lhe people of this country who
live by the labor of their hands
and brains, and whose only power consists
in the use of a free ballot, will not be over
powered by the methods practiced at the
polls by the beneficiaries of any system of
legislation. They will ove:throw the party
which e.eated that system. They will, in a
spirit of perfect fairness, modify the sys
tem itself until the greatest good of the
greatest number is secuied, and will drive
bribers and their candidates from the field
of politics."
In conclusion Gorman says: "The peo
ple are turning to Grover Cleveland in such
numbers that all the wealth controlled by
members of the republican party cannot, 1
believe, alter the result, if you and I and
all earnest democrats give ourselves up
from now until the close of the day of elec
tiJn to the support of the candidates of the
great democratic party."

When the Chicago convention passed res
olutions to repeal the prohilbtive tax on
state bank notes it went toward the ground
of the alliance, and, if elected, Cleveland
cannot well help signing the bill to which
his party is already pledged. The alliance
scheme of notes, based on foreign products,
would follow in more than one state.

most trustworthy source that the cabinet's

says the lterald's London corresl.ondent.
"and that a negative reply probably will be

The correespondent of the Times to-day,
in referring to the matter, says: "Of course

their being thrown out unless corrected.
The tickets have been in the hands of the
commissioners of election for some tim-I

hard to tell what cot ton of the tickets sent
out are illegal. Most of those heard from
are a sixtoenth of an inch too long; some
too small; some too large. The law sav.

inches. A etrenuous effort will be made to
remedy the error.

In a City Where the Subject of
Wages Is Understood
Very Well.
Strong Points Made by Judge
Kirkpatrick Before a Butte
Neobody In That (Great Industrial (Center
lIas Had Illt Wages Increased by
the Tariff.
]Btrrra, Nov. 3.--I pecal,]--The demo
oretic rally at the opera house to-night was
one of the most enthusiastie and largest
attended of the otralpagnl. There were
several excellent .speiake s, bonfires, fire
works and music, all cent ihbting to a sae
eseeful meeting. Dr. inhultz, president of
the Young Men's Demooratietelnb, ealledithe
meeting to order and introduced Judge
Kirkspariei, who delivered one of the best
addresses of the campaign. The repub
lican t arty, said he, by many pretexts, has
endeavored to show that a high tariff is
neceessary to the prosperity of the country.
Four years ago Harrison was elected on
that pretext, the McKinley bill was made a
law, a bill which raised the high war tariff
47 per cent higher. Now the beneflciaries
of that tariff, through the republican news
papers and speakers, say to the people,
"We pray you continue nus in power for we
are the particular friends of labor. If the
democrats are placed in power we will be
deprived of revenue from the tariff which
we mean to devote to increasing the wages
of employee."
'The democratic party has shown the
fallacy of such arguments. They have told
the people that they have no seourity for
the promises made by the republicans and
no assurance that the promises made will
be fulfilled. Besides, the laborers of the
protected industries are a very small per
cent. of the laborers in the country, so that
even if their promises were fulfilled a uni
versal tax would still have to be levied for
the benefit of the few. Harrison was
elected on that pretext and now comes
Wayne MaoVeagn, that old republican, and
says the election was paid for in cold coin
by tariff beneficiaries. For them the Mc
Kinley bill was passed by republican con
gresa, but if the promises of the party went
for anything the money received through it
by the protected industries was simply re
ceived in trust for the laboring men, and
was to be applied to increasing their wages.
Have any higher wages Leen paid or more
lator employtd since the passage of that
bill? Have there been less strikes and look
outs? No; the tluth is that wages in nearly
all the protected industries have dimin
ished rather than incleased. Take Penn
sylvania, the hotbed of protection fallacy.
for an example. Take Carnegie and Frick,
for lastance, who have been piling up mil
lions of wealth noder protection, have they
increased the wages of their employes?
Not one single protected industry in that
state has increased waees since the passage
of the McKinley bill. Did any single tariff
beneficiary call his men around him and
tell them that by reason of high tariff he
was protected by cheap foreign competition.
and that he got that protection on the
promise to increase the wages of his em
ployea, and that he was glad of the oppor
tunity to discharge his obligation to the
government and laborers? Not one eof
them has been heard to do so.
On the contrary, we hear too often the
cry of distress coming from the workshops
of the protected induatries. Fortunes are
piled up by the partnership between the
government and tie corporations; that had
been the policy of the republican party,
under the tariff law. 'the promises under
which the McKinley bill was passed have
all been broken. No sooner did it become
a law than 300 of the protected manufac
turers actually cut down wages, and since
the raseare if the bill there have been no
lets than 500 instances of strikes, lookouts
and labor disturbances. '1he protected
manufacturers are the gmen who contribute
the republicnn corruption fund by which
the ballot is debauched. Judge Kirkpht
rick also spoke on the silver question.
An able speech was also delivered by Hoe.
