The Herald does not represent that
bom of Republicanism to which Demo
cratic interlopers can dictate or with
which Democratic interlopers can in
terfere when Rjpublioens hold the
reins of government. When it con
cludes to be run by Damoeretio adven
turers it will be Democratic and noth
ing else.
Reports from Baltimore sre to the
effect that Maryland will have a Repub

the winter goes by. That State gave
McKinley a mejority cf 32,000 last

publicans on a 'joint ballot. Mr.
Gorman now offers to vacate' if it will
save the State to the Democracy. He
is too late.
An evidence of tfce improvement in
business since the people of the country

largest in the history of the railways of
the eountry, and ia no less than seventy
million tons in excess of the preceding
year. The groea earnings of the rail
roads of the country for the year were
nearly $75,000,000 greater than those of
the preceding year.

The Blackfoot Indian Rsservation in
Montana is to be thrown open for set

causes Arizonans to icq a ire how it is
that no efforts are being made to open
up the enormous and useless Indian
reservations of this Territory to settle
ment. The Indians of Arizona are oc
cupying large tracts of the most valu
able land within our borders, nine
tenths of which are perfectly useless to
the Indians.
The Democratic attack upon Senator j
Hacna and the Bepnbliosn administra-

fact that the sale was ordered by a

der, with no advantages given to the
syndicate which has arranged to start j
it at 8o0,000,000, has completely annlhi-

abiolutely withont foundation.

There is quite a oontreet between the
present business condition of the Unit
ed States and these at this time in the
first year of Cleveland's sdmicistration.
Ia August and September of 1893 banks
were breaking, business establishments
closing, and prices falling. Now prices
are rising, new backs are being organ
iced, and business establishments which I
have been closed for four years are
opening up. The latest issue of Brad
street's states Jthat the three cordage
mills at OjbIs, Ohio, whioh have not I
been in operation for eeveral years, will
be started up at once -acd with a full
force, and as the establishments cost
over half a million dollars, it goes with
out saying that this will give employ
ment to a large number ot men. The
East Lake Woolen rMilie, Bridgeton,
Pa., whioh have been idle for nearly
three years, will resume operations next
week. The Weed Paper Mills at Malone,
N. Y., whioh have been idle for a year,
will reopen at once. The Chesapeake
& Ohio and the Cleveland, Cincinnati
and Chicago and St. Louis railroad com
panies have ordered 1,000 additional
box cars eaoh for their grain transpor
tation. The. Cleveland Rollirg Mills
announoe en order for 1.000 tons of bar
steel for exportation to Birmingham,
England. V. The Appleton, Wis., Paper
Mills annoucos orders from Japan for
2,000 tons of print peper. The iron
workeis cf the country report the de
mand for feucdry pig iron so great as
to have precfcically annihilated their
large accumulation of stock. Tbe con
trast in boeinefs conditions between
the opening months of the Cleveland
administration And tbe McKinley ad
mioistrtt on is very great.

The system he employs with iron ore
should be available for the reduction
and securing of gold ores. If so it will
make available enormous quantities of
low grade ores in this Territory that are
now unavailable because the ordinary

The Sale Took Place this Morn

was sold to the re-organizasion commit-
&ee for 39,093.281.S7 for the railroad
property endl 513,645,250.89 for the
Ohaha, Nov. 1. The Union Paclflo
road proper, Including the buildings and
all that goes to operate the system was
shis morning sold to the re-orgaoizition
oomm.ttee for the sum of o3,52$,53Z.6.
Tnis Bmount does not inoluaa the sink-
ng fund in the hands of the govern
ment and taking this to, be 61,036,400, j
rhe amount stated in the government
decree covering the sale of the road, the
total price paid for the property is $57,-1
661.S32.76. There were no other bidders
iiud the road went to the re-organization
committee without opposition. The
sale of the road was in itself one of the
most t6me and uninteresting perform
ances possible to imagine. It was ad
vertised to take place in front of the
Union Pacific freight house at the junc
tion of Ninth and jjones streets at II J
o'olock, and it was just one minute
after that time when Master in Chan
cery Cornish, the auctioneer, took his
plac9 on the low stone step in front of
she Ninth street entranoe. For over an
hour the crowd had been waiting to
witness the sale and with great difficulty
Cornish could get suffioieat room to en-
able him to woik.
Cornish carried under his arm a large
portfolio bonnd with the regulation red
tape and sooa the crowd gave hiin room
to extend his arms. He untied the
strings and drew forth a number of
papers. Selecting one he replaced tbe
others end holding it oat S3ld, "Gentle
men, I aaa bete to eell certaiu railroad
properties pursuance to a decree of the
United States Circuit Court). I will
now read a dascriphioa of tbe property
So b eo'ri ad when I have finished the
rendiog I will be prepared to receive
bide." Ha then untoldad tne notioe of
3ile, whiob was very iong, being about
four columns of agate type and read it.
After reading a protest from Receiver
Fombull, Cornish placed it in th9 port
folio and said, "I am now ready to re-
oeive bids for the railroad property, the
description of which I have jast read."
There was a moment's eilenos and then
General Fitzgerald said, "I bid thirty-
ine million, eight hundred and eighty
three thousand, two hundred and
eighty-one dollars and eighty-seven
oaots, in the aame of Louis Fitzgerald
and A. W. Eraoh, purchasing trustees.
There was another pause and Cornish
said: "Are there any more bids." There
were none and the Master continued "I
will now receive' bids for the Bale of
bonds the description of whiob I have
received," General Fitzgerald replied: "I
bid on behalf of Louis Fuzgerald and A
W Kreob, purchasing trustees, the sum
of thirteen million six huudrsd . and
forty-five thousand two hundred and
fifty dollars and eighty -nine cents." Io
both instances General Fitzgerald r : d
nis bid from a memorandum whiob be
held in his bands.. Ia response to the
query: "Are there any more bids;" there
was not a sound and tbe Mastsr contin
ued: "As there are no more bids, I da -clare
tbe property of whioh I have just
read a description, sold to Louis Fitz
gerald and Alvin W. Kreob, purchasing
trustees, tbey having made tbe highest
and only bid." That was ail to the en
tire sale and the members of the reor
ganization committee and attorneys lost
no time in getting back to the offices of
the Union Pao.fio road. Under the
terms ot tbe sale the purchasers have
ninety days in which to pty over the
full amount of tbe purchase money and
that pert of tbe traasactioo will be
carried out in New York in the future.
The members of the committee had
aothing to say after the sale was over.
Omaha, Nov. 2. The reorganization
commission of tbe Union Pacific whioh
yesterday bought tbe government lien
on second mortgage on the property of
tbe Uciou Pacific, today purchased the
first mortgage on tbe same property by
whioh the construction bonds were se
cured. The price paid was the amount
named as the minimum bid $50,637,435.
The property was bought ns was tbe
second mortgage by the name of Louis
Fitzerulp and Alvin Kreoh as purchas
ing trustees.
This concludes the sale and as there
is no other property to be sold the thing
is finished. The report of the sale made
yesterday was filed today io the office
of the clerk of the United States Court.
The report cited that the order of sale
was issued by J edge Sanborn and in ao

Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 2. Eleotion
day was ushered in by a bloody en
counter on the streets between Repub
licans and Democrats at 10 a. m., result
ing in the death of three men and
wounding of two more. The difficulty
began by the effjrt ot Frank Egbert, ot
the Rapablioaa organizing party to
uead off a party of Democrats under
Dab Marshall, whom Egbert claimed
had taken a number of negroes to the
country to prevent their voting. Eg
bert, it ia said, ewated Marshall's re
turn and fired on him from ambush,
wounding him and Smith sar-ously and
slightly wounding Alex. G. &ham, a
negro. Deputy Sheriff Det.Bioa or
ganized a posse and attempi-ed to ar
rest Egbert and party. The two parties
net and firing began. Fifty shots or
more were fired and Egbert was in
stantly killed while Dsakins was mor

Egbert's men, was killed and Walter
Gains, a nngro, seriously hurt.
Louisville, Nov. 2. From indica
tions a big vote will be polled today,
notwithstanding it is raining steadily.
Tbe feeling is at fever beat and
tbe history cf the oity have party
lines been drawn eo e'osely. The
contest is more bitter owing to the fact
that the A. P. A., it is said, is solidly

The Catholic vote is equally solid for
