Florida exhibit in tho fair, brought to tho
( President's car crapes, fruit, oranges, lem
ons, guava jellies, pineapples, and honey of
Florida make for Mrs. Cleveland's brenhfast

and sent to Washington by express.
The great event of yesterday after tho
sham battlo was the torchlight procession of
the Young Men's Democratic leagues of the
State. A drenching rain was falling, but
that did not dampen tho ardor of tho en
thnsiastio citizens who thronged tho streets
with flaming torches.
A liberal display of fireworks lent bright
ness to tho scene, and between tho cheers of
the people and the countermarching of the
torcli-bearcrs tlicro was such u demonstration
as is seldom seen.
When tho torch-bearers had gathered
around tho artesian well, where President
Cleveland btood in review, he arose and said:
" I shall not soon forget, my friends, tho
cordiality and enthusiasm of the welcome of
tho people of Atlanta and the State of
Georgia, n cordiality which no ei'cumstanco
can vary and an enthusiasm wL. .ti even in

(Cheers.) I shall remember it not as a
personal tribute, but as an ovidenco
of tho lovo of tho people of tho United States

ISPECIAL TO TIIE EVEN1NO WORLD.)
Nashville. Tumi., Oct. 20. It begins to
look ns though the polico havo got tho mur
dcrers of tho old man, .1. L. Howard, who
was found dead under tho railroad trcstlo
Tuesday morning, and who was belioved to
havo been killed by falling or being
thrown from a passing train during
tho night. Threo disorderly women nro
now in jail, surrounded by nn almost porfect
perfect chain of circumstantial evidence con
necting them with the crime. Their names
nro Bettio lllnck, Anuio Wright and Lou Wil
son. Thero is ovidenco that Howard was nt
their houso on Spmco street early in tho
night, and he is believed to have returned
und charged them with robbing him. Tho
main witness in the ufliiir is n little six-year-old
daughter of Aunio Wright, who
tolls the story. 8ho says that her
mother hit the man in the head with
nn 11x0, mid tho other woman uttackod him
and beat him with rocks till ho was dead.
Then her mother took him by the head, an
other girl by tho feet and another by tho
body and carried him nwnv.
Tlio pluco whero Howard's body wus found
is only a block and n half from whero tho
women live, and tho way is lonely, so that
they could easily have plnced him whero ho
was. Tho body when found looked as if it
had boon carefully laid out, and not as if it
had fallen from tho train.

requested thnt the sentence bo shortened, so
that it would oxpiro beforo tho date of tho

couraging figures of tho growth of t.10 or

More and more clearly detlnedls tho line be
coming which divides the honest man satisfied
with a Just remuneration which he tins truly
earned, until by his own effort he can rise to a
higher position In life and tho loud-voiced "bonih-
thrower," who, scarcely able to speak tho English
language, Beeks to win his own comfortable living
from thoso who have worked for It, presuming
upon the Imagination and arousing false hopes In
the hearts of thoHe who are still more Ignorant
thauh,insclf. Among sensible men the day for
all this Is past. Let "mercy season Justice" and
Justice be tempered with moderation, A wlso ar
bitration louks to a long result rather than to Im

than Intimidation ever can hope to do.

"HD f ffflBi 'Alfrl misapprehension that
yjyLiLy it was tho day pro-
.Tessas. I3C scribed by tho statuto
?:5 tot the registration of
voters for tho Novem
ber election. Thoy say that their Chief
Clerk, Mr. Andrews, is entirely to blame.
Tho Election law of 1834, as amended in
188C, prescribes thnt tho days of registration
shall bo tho last Tuesday of September, tho
second Tuesday in October and the Tuesday
occurring two weeks boforo election.
Election occurs " tho first Tuesday
after tho first Monday in November." This
year November begins on Tuesday, thus put
ting election day off to tho f urthost limits, tho
8th. Last year it occurred on Nov. i, and Chief
Perry of tho Board of Elections,Kays that Chief
Clerk Andrews in compiling his registry lists
from last year's books, issued his notices for
tho 18th because it seemed nearest to tho date
of tho last registry in 1880, which fell on
Oct. 21.
Chief Clerk Andrews declined to talk about
tho matter to-day, and, in fact, he and his
force seemed to bo afraid to givo any inform
ation to the reporters.
Corporation Counsol Almet P. Jcncks held
a consultation with Judges Pratt and Culleu,
of the Supreme Court. Both Justices were of
opinion that no judicial settlement of
tho question of tho legality of
last Tuesday's registration could bo
obtained until some ono with a griovanco
Sresonted it to tho Court. This could be
one by having a Board of Registry strike
off one of the names registered last Tuesday,
when tho voter whoso namo was strioken off
could apply for a mandamus compelling its
restoration.
This action was thought unnecessary, how
ever, and to-day Corporation CounBel Joncks
submitted his opinion to Mayor Whitney. It
was in effect that the Board of Elcctjrtus had
mado an undoubted error in fixfilg last
Tuesday as a day of registry, but that the
error did not vitiate the registry lists and those
who has registored would 00 entitled to
vote. Howovcr, this doos not relieve tho
Boards of Registry from compliance with tho
law which fixes tho Tuesday two wcoks pre
ceding the election on tho last dny of regis
try, and they ttiiist sit again at the several
polling places on Tnosilay next.
Ex-Judge Benjamin F. Tracy, of the Court
of Appeals, was of tho saina opinion. Ho
said: There can bo no trouble unless some
cantankerous insjiector of election refuses
tho vote of somo ono who registered lust
Tuesday, aud even then tho tronblo would
only como to tho inspector. It is
absurd to suppose that tho whole election in
this great Stato would bo vitiated by an error
which will deprive no oue of the opportunity
to register, ami it is equally utisurn
to suppobo that any court would
declaro tho election void be
causo citizens acknowledged to bo
entitled to vote had been registered on a
wrong day, through no fault of their own.
Of course n defeated cuudidato might ap
peal to tho courts on the ground of
this ii regularity, but unless ho can
Bhow that voters wcrp dupiived of tho
right of franchiso by it. or that men who
wero not legal voters had by it been permit
ted to cast their ballots, he would bo thrown
out of court. Tho registry is till right, and
it is not at all necessary for those who ap
peared last Tuesday to go beforo tho Boards
of Registry again on next Tuesday."
The chairmen of the various Registry Boards
mado their reports to-day to tho Board of
Elections, depositing 0 copy of tho registry
up to Tuesday night hist, when they
supposed their labors had ceased
as Registrars. But euch was informed
that another day of registry must bo
had next Tuesday. Their returns
show that t'20,077 citizens have registered, the
largest number ever recorded in tho city ex
cejit in 1881, when there were 127,000 voters
on tho lists. With an extra day tho latter
figure should ho outdone, and tho result of
the error of the Board of Elections may bo
that Brooklyn will cast a larger oto than
over bofore in her history.
At the headquarters of tho Democratic
Campaign Committee an Evenino Would re
porter was informed that tho most eminent
lawyers of the party would bo consulted,
and if they were of opinion that it was
necessary, tho working committeo would
tako steps to got nil Democratic votors who
wero rpf'istored last Tuesdav to f?o npnin to
tho places of registry next Tuesday. Tho
general opinion was thnt this would bo un
necessary. Thero is another phase of tho matter which
is not calculated to delight the taxpayers of
Brooklyn. The places of registry wero
rented for four days : threo for purposes of
registration and ono for the election.
They wero rented at a uniform
rute of $5 a day, and tho registrars also
roceivo by law $5 per day for this service.
An additional expense will therefore be sad.
died on tho city of about .? 1,000 for
tho 700 registrars, $1,325 in rental for tho
nlacos of registry, mukiua a total extra cost
to the city on account of tho blunder of the
Board of Elections of about 45.300. Clerk
Andrews, on whom tho blame is laid, is a Re.
publican. He has been clerk of the Board of
Elections twelve years.
The Board of Elections is non-partisan.
It is composed of Timothy Perry. President,
and Charles H. Cotton, Republicans, and
John Gilbertson, Democrat, who wero ap
pointed by Mayor Low, aud Thomas V.
Porter, a Democrat, who wns appointed by
Mayor Whitney. Their salary is $2,000 a
year eaeh und thoir terra two years.
At the Headquarters of the Republican
County Committee there was strong condem
nation of tho careless work of tho Board of
Elections. No 0110 attaches any political Big.
nificanco to the error, though in any year
whero there was no defection from tho Demo,
cratio party, Mich as tho Labor movement
is, the Democrats would naturally coin by
tho increased registry and implied full vote.
Tho Republicans express regret that another
day must be had for registry on this account,
mid express satisfaction with the registry um
it stood lost Tuesduy night.

New BnuNswiCK, N. J., Oct. 30. Sinco tho
namo of Anuio Ingraham has been associated
witn the identity of tho murdered girl at
Rohway, many persona b.ert recall tho strik
ing reseinblanco of Annio to tho
photograph of the victim of tho
myBtcrious crime. Ex-Chief Fitzgerald
and Dotectivo Gregory returned from

They rofuscd to mako known tho result of

It is belioved thot tho dotectivo has run

at Bound Brook on tho night of Dec. 7, 1880,
and who followed her when sho fled from

In Ward 17, Bellevuo Hospital, is au old

tho effects of starvation. Ho is John Rogau,
sixty-two years of age, and a cotton spinner,
who was thrown out of work in
New England during n prolonged striko,
and was homeless and friendless. On Sunday
afternoon ho wandered into tho ruins of tho

He drew a canvass bag over his face and soon
fell asleep, with dump aud soggy cotton for

men who aro employed by tho Underwriters
to save all tho cotton that is possible,
wheeled their barrows over tho resting-place

MARTIN GIVES HIMSELF UT.
Ho FurnUhr nail to Appear at tho Harlem
Dlausler Inquest.
Ex-Building Inspector Willinm J. Martin,
who was summarily dismissed for negligence
contributory to tho Harlem school disas
ter, surrendered himsolf at tho Coronors'
offico nt noon to-day. He had heard of Cor
oner Eidman's warrant for his arrest, and he
brought with him Christopher Boylan, of 352
East Twontioth street, who was willing to bo
surety for his appcaranco at tho inquest.
Coroner Eidman fixed tho bail at $5,000 aud
Mr. Boylan signed the papers.
Martin looked very much depressed. Ho
said that his removal was illegal mid that he
would suo for reinstatement.
" I was confused yestorday and mado a
mistake in pleading guilty to neglect iu
regard to tho recesses," ho said. " The fact
Is I told Father Kirner repeatedly that he
must mako a twelve-inch wall at the back of
tho recesses instead of an eight-inch wall.
" I also told him that ho could not build
abovo the second story until ho got
a pormit fiom tho department. He
wont on doing as ho liked, however,
and tho reason I did not act inoro promptly
1b that I knew ho had influence enough to
got tho pormit.
" Last Saturday I made up my mind that I
could not tako the responsibility of letting
him do as he llkod and made out a ' violation '
notice I would havo turned it in Monday
if I had not been attending a funeral."
When asked by on Evenino Wonu re
porter this morning what action could be
taken against Martin, Coroner Eidman said
that he could givo no definite information
until all the facta had been brought .out at
the inquest on the bodies ot thuvictirn. - .
"If tho inry find that Martin was criminnlly
negligent," he said, " I shall commit him to
await the action of tho Grand Jury, although
I remember that a similar attempt to punish
Uie negligent Building Inspector in tho Bud
densiek case was futile."

let for the Missouri Pacific.
The bull leaders are at It vigorous by this morn
ing, and the entire temper of tho market can, for
once, be said to be " bullish."
Western Union advancement of rates la looked
for by the Street, President Green's statement to
the contrary, notwithstanding.
The consolidation of the main line of the Little
Itock X Eastern and tho Arkansas A Southern is
being discussed In St. Louis to-day.
Yesterday's hammering strength of the Bate
man and Commack combination Is the talk and
admiration of the Street tbls morning.
Fourteen railroads yesterday reported earnings
for the first two weeks of tho month, and In every
case an Increase was shown over last year.
Bear war-cry for the day Incorporated the Ina
bility of the Transcontinental roads to come to
any agreement, and the general bad outlook of the
Grangers.
Tho annual Inspection of the Pennsylvania Hall
road Is now being made by President Huberts and
a party of directors. Will It result lu an Increased
dividend?
Mr. Huntington has decided to put rates down to
a killing point on all through business, while Mr.
Gould Is expected to carry out the same programme
on business North and South.
Mr. Connor says to-day that It Is hardly fair to
call him cither a bull or a bear, aa lu pulnt ol fact

slightly Inclined to the long side.
"When will the public recover Its senses?" A
hull query propounded by White, Wormser and

the road would seem to Indicate that sago had
pronounced di signs lu that direction.
The report that the Baltimore and Ohio and
Hlchmond Termlual are to bo directly connected
aud worked lu harmony with the other Trunk
Hues la not credited In authoritative quarters.
Ittissell Suge and Jay Gould both tako that lawt
ault matter pleasantly and philosophically. "No
worried In the least, you know, and rather glad
that the old sore Is to be specifically treated."
Notwithstanding the general advance In railroad
earnings, the Denver and Western, and the Peo
ria, Decatur and Krunsvlllo roads both show a
slight decrease beluw the October record of lssa.

meeting in Chicago as a lizzie. Nothing was done,
aud the prospects are lhat cut rates have come to
stay all winter. So says President Stlcknoy, of the
Minnesota and Northwestern Itallroad Company.
A prominent railroad man says to-day In refer
ence to the position of tho Atchison Road, that It Is
encroaching on territory that does not belong to It,
and wherecrlt goes, it insists on a division of
business, which la regarded aa a premium paid to
new llnvi, aud is refused.
