In which the 1(1 author relates two Interviews ho had In Madrid III during tho month ot August with the Prime II Minister of Spain. Senor Antonto Canoras del if Castillo. Tho pamphlet Is dedicated to Mr. C. H A. Dana as n testimony of thanks for his ser- llj vices to tbe Cuban cause. II After having consulted Senor Estrada Palma, llf the Cuban Delcgalo In tho United States, and II knowing tho opinion of Qen. Goincz, Senor Ar- I mas tried to learn also what Senor Canoras I would think about a peaceful arrangemont of J the Cuban question In the form ot a contract 1 between the belligerents In which Spain should I J I grant Independence to Cuba and the Cuban re. till pubUoasrrco to pay a war Indemnity to Spain. I In last May. and through an important Spanish J Ik official, the Count of Casa Miranda, Senor MB Armas, while In Paris, received news that the B Prime Minister ot Spain was ready to hear him JH on tho subject provided Senor Armas eould . IHJ guarantee that In case the Spanish Government lifH should maka such a proposal the Cubans In IR arms would accept It. K Senor Armas had then another Interview with I Senor Palma, and the latter offered to trans- j xult the proposal to the Cuban Government, and J gave his personal opinion In favor of It as well as his guarantee that the Cubans In arms would bo willing to make such an agreement, but knowing tho Spanish pride, ho told Senor Ar- Imas not to act as a representative of the Cuban revolution, because the Spanish Government wonld bellevo that they were looking for peace and Lad found themselves too feeble to con tlnno the war. That Mr. Palma was right Is proved In the pamphlet referred to In this article. Returning to Paris In August, Senor Armas was escorted to Madrid by an ot-clal specially sent for that purpose by Senor Conovas, and under an assumed name with a Spanish pass port. All theso precautions were needed be cause Senor Armas is a Cuban revolutionist ex j polled from his country by the Spanish Govern ment. In Madrid SenorCanovas received Senor Armas, and the first proposal he made was to grant home rule to the Island of Cuba. As SenorArmas answered that such a thing was out of tho question the Prime Mioltter offered to grant Independence after the Cubans had laid down their arms, "to satisfy tho national pride." Benor Armas replied that In his position, acting Independently for the accomplishment of a practical end, he could not transmit such a pro- posal, as tbe Cubans would never believe a promise of that kind made by Spain. I Here the Prime Minister grow angry, and B with Insulting expressions about Cuba obliged m Senor Armas to make an answer which put him In dancer of immediate arrest. The af B fair would have ended there, but next day H when Senor Armas was about to leave Madrid H the Prime Minister called him again to bis H office and tried to convince him of the wisdom BJ of transmitting lilt plan to the Cnbaus, but as U Senor Armas refused to do It without a guar- W anteo from the Government ot the United ,V States that Spain would keep her promise, tho Prime Minister then said: "Tne United States?

In an Intsrvlew to-day upon the subject ot the return from the Plnar dil Itlo province to Havana of Captaln-Ooneral Wejler, rrltno Minister Cabovas said that he entirely supported tho courso pursued by Gen. Woylor. Tho Premier ridiculed tho Idea that Wcyler would be superseded asCaptaln-Oencral of Cuba because ot his return to Havana, and declared that the Captain-General's Initiative should be mspocled. Wcylor, ho said, had advanced operations In tho Island for the .purpose of allaying the Ira patlcnco manifested by the public, and, despite the disadvantages under which he had labored, had driven tho Insurgonts out of their fastnesses. Far from tho plan of the Captaln-General's campaign having proved a failure, it was a fact that when he arrived in Havana to succeed Captaln-Genornl Campos tbe insur gents In Cobawcroa numerous body: whcrea, from tho tlmo of his assuming command thcro had been only n few scattered bands of the In surgents, which had been constantly pursued and harassed by the Spanish cavalry. Senor Canovas further said that ho had not approached Gen. Arcnrraga, Minister of War, upon tho question of succeeding Gen. Wejler, as suoh a course woutd Imply a lack of conQ denoo on tho part ot the Government In the Captain-General. irBTLBli MOST VXtorVLAB. The rJpautah People Are ZSecomlas; Anxloae to Uet Bid or 111m. Madrid. Nov, S3. Several of the leading newspapers of Madrid are very bitter In their criticisms of tbe return of Gen. Weyler to Hav ana, and declare him to be morally ruined. All of these papers demand that Gen. Azcarraga, the present Minister of War, bo sent to Cuba at once to supersedo Gen. Weyler. The last mall advicos from Madrid say that tho feeling there against Gen. Weyler Is so wide spread that the only thing which prevents tho Government from recalling him Is tho fear that suoh a decision would be interpreted abroad as an admission of Spain's incapacity to overcome tbe rebellion. 1 Xuevo Mutvlo says that Gen. Weyler sots as though he had eternity at his disposal, and El Hbtral hints that the Govern ment may take some Important measure "to ward the end of this month. Gen. Arearragn la looked upon as the man predestined to save the country. In rase bis objections to going to Cuba cannot be overcome, some twenty Generals, including the demented Pando, will present themselves as candidates for the coveted post. Those whose ohanccs are best for getting It are Prtino de Rivera, Borrero, and Daban. jiEnrixa tiiis cvbas league. la 1870thBOrBaatxatloa Did Tallinn Work for the Canse of Freedom. When Cuba Inaugurated her rebellion of 1S0S, then as now she kept Spain at bay with all her armjes. In 1870 the cublio sentiment of our people broke forth Into organization on behalf of the patriots, and among the well-known citizens of that day whose Influence centred in the efforts for securing belligerent rights to Cuba were: Gov. E. D. Morgan, Charles A. Dana, Samuel J. Tilden. Boscoe Conkllntr, Sam Randall, Senator Benjamin F. Wade, Peter Cooper, Commodore Cornelius Vandcrbllt, Marshall O. Boberta, Gen. Josenh Hooker, Hor ace Groeley, A. T. Stewart, George Opdyke, William Cullen Bryant, Rueben E. Fenton, David W. Field. Chester A. Arthur. Moses Tay lor, James Gordon Bennett, A. A. Low, Elbrldge T. Gerry. Judge George C. Barrett, Algernon 8. Sullivan, Henry Clews, Gen. Frank P. Blair. Gen. A. E. Burntlde. Jay Gould, William M. Evarts, Gen. Martin T. MoMabon, and 300 others. Gen. Grant was tbe Prosldcnt of the United States and for his own reasons withheld the offi cial hand of national support. After a long struggle Spain promised the reforms demanded, and the controversy ended In a compromise. Spain did not keep her promise, and now, after a quarter of a century, the does of war are again let loose, and this time Cuba demands In dependence as tbe price of peace. Pending the clash of arms of twenty-five years ago the Cuban League of that day held a mass meeting on the night of April 4, 1870, in Cooner Institute, which for magnitude and enthusiasm was perhaps without a parallel, as those stato who still remember It. Mr. A. Oakey Hall, the Mayor of tho city; Mr. Fitch, a mimborof Con gress, and Gov. Salomon of Wisconsin nnd others made, stirring addresses. The league Issued an address to tbe people of the United States, whloh aroused everywhere fervent patri otism. This address was prepared by Kthan Allen, then aotlve In the councils of the league and ever since an untiring friend of Interven tion In behalf ot the struggling patriots. Mr. Allen Is now engaged in an effort to recall this league Into activity, and within a few days our citizens will renew, or have opportunity to do so, their devotion to tbe cause of freedom. A mass meeting is to be arranged after reorganiza tion and meetings everywhere railed for. Among those, who have signed a preamble for the organization of tbe Cuban league of tho United Statesof America are: Charles A. Dana, Ethan Allen. Paul Clayton. Frank I). Carpenter. John C. McGulre.

Wabiiinotom, Nov. 20. Secretary Latnont, In his annual report ti be published in a few days, will ask for an appropriation of $10,000.. 000 In addition to the $12,000,000 appropriated at tho last session ot Congress for tho construc tion nf coast defences, the equipment of new stations, reorganization of the infantry branch, and other Improvements In the general service, to place tho country on a stronger war footing, Tho Secretary will say thut"by tho end of tbe fiscal year ot 1808 tho nation will be fairly safe from foreign Invasion, while three years later evrry Important port on tho Atlantlo seaboard will ho iuvulhcrable to tho most formidable fleets." The Secretary calls particular attention to the necessity of losing no tlmo in constructing at tho smaller ports sufficient emplacements for the Installation of guns to protect such cities from smaller crulsors while heavier ships are la Ing siege to the stronger ports. Cities like Charleston and Savannah he will show could now bo successfully assailed by two or three cruisers, whereas wlthonoor two heavy guns In place they w ould bo safo from all but the largest battleships. His policy, therefore, will bo to render the principal Southern ports com paratively safe from attack with as little delay as possible, and to this end work Is now pro gressing nt nil tho ports on the Gulf and south Atlantlo mentioned In the fortifications report as demanding attention. The War Department authorities havo been guided by a purpose to protcot as many seaport towns as possible from attacks by Isolated cruisers, as well as to prcparo for a more effi cient defenco of the larger cities where coast defences have been In course of construction for tho past six years. The department has had In view th'o possibility of a few cruisers being sent against ports where practically no defence could now bo tnado while largo fleets wero cm ployed In bombarding the great seaports, and to guard against the former danger It proposes placing as soon as practicable sufficient guns and mortars at such ports as Charleston nnd Mobile to make those cities safo from an attack by any but a most formidable fleot. Economy both In time and money has been observed In many Instances in selecting loca tions tor expenditures t hero the Government already controlled the sites or had a working plant. This has been true at the ports of Bos ton. Now York, Fort Monroo, and Washington. Within tho next month the denartment will spend $100,000 In tbs construction of three mining casemates and cable atoro tanks and toroodo storehouses at ports where all otber or part of the necessary mine equipment has been provided. Negotiations are now pending also for the purchase of sites for tho defences of tbs ports of Baltimore and Charleston and Nar ragansett Bay, and emplacements will be In coarse of construction at all of them within a few weeks. In th past year tbo depxrtmnnt ha made great progress In the purchase of material for the manufacture of great guns and otber parts of coast-defence equipment, and will ask Con gress that large additional appropriations bo madoxvlth which to continue work. Contracts hare already been awarded for the purchase of twenty-one seta of 10-lnch and one set of 10-Inch steel gun forglngs, costing nearly two million dollars, and a second contract will shortly be made for assembling 8, 10, and 12-Inch guns, costing nearly $400,000, be sides (lit mortars, costing about 800,000. When the total number of emplacemonta upon which worsts now progressing are completed 128 guns of large calibre will be required for Installation and ISO mortars, costing the Gov ernment an even $8,000,000. Of the 431 guns lo be cmplaeed It Is now proposed to mount but 48 on non-disappearing carriages. The Inten sity ot the fire delivered from the main nnd secondary batteries of a battlo ship Is such, the authorities claim, as to make adequate cover for tbe gunnsrs In shore batteries an absolute necessity. Tbe experi ments. It will be show n by Secretary Lamont In his report, with dlanpearlng gun carriages, have developed a line tpo, about whoso efll clencj there Is no longer a question. For years this problem has been almost as difficult of so lution as that of smokeless powder, but the Im provements In tho Iluftlngton-Crozler typo has tieen so rapid that now the authorities are satis fied with the design, nnd Secretary Lamont Will state In his report that Its adoption will be general. The full scone that tho coast defences of thn country will take will be set forth elaborately In the report, and ombraces, Pol. Lamont snys, about twonty-one cities to far, with chances that seven moro will be added to the list re quiring the attention of the national Govern, ment. Of this number, emplacements will bu ordered and work pursued In thn next six months In the construction of em placements at Portland. Me.: Ports, mouth. N. II. Boston.

Washington, Baltimore, Hamp ton itnads, Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, Kcv West, I'ensacolo, Mobile, New Orleans, Galveston, San Dingo, ban Francisco, thn mouth of the Columbia ltlver, and I'uget Sound, This enormous project will require, the Secre tary's report will show, 481 high-powered guns, excluding the great lU-lnch gun for which thn authorities have been endeavoring for years to secure an appropriation. Tho emplacements are to be located by the engineers with a view of enabling thu guns to thrown linn of defence at a minimum of 8 to 1U miles fromthe place defend ed and in givn tbe guns In most Instances a rlear sweep for at least 12 miles. The engl necrs will require further that the guns shall be so placed that they can concentratn upon any ono portion of an enemy's vessels a lira eutial, and, If possible, superior to the heav. lest that can he brought to hear from tho most powerful hnitllo fleet which could attack the position. To hold the fleet under fire of the guns and prevent them from running the bat teries, tbe project, the report will say, requires a complete system of submarine ralnes.soplun ted as to close all navigable rivers to an enemy, whllo offering no obstructions to friendly coin inerce. These battorles will form one of tho most formidable features of the coast defences of nil cities, and upon them In a great measure several of the big cities will depend for their safety from Invasion should the shorogunsbe unequal to hold the fleet outside. To protect the principal cities and harbors on thn navi gable waters of the coast the report will say that over 0.000 mines and 10,000 mortars will be used to pruvent nn Invading floet from occupying an ndrnntagenus position. The report will say that there will soon bo comploted for tho defences slxty-ono 8-Iiiuh, llfty-slx lO-lnrh, and twenty-one 12-inch gnn, nnd eighty 2-Inch mortars, and by Juno .'10 next seventy-two 8 inch, nlghty-xeven 10-Imh, fltty.rnven 12-Inch guns, and eighty-eight 12 Inch mortars, and by tho end nf the tlscal year, June 30, 1808, tho number will havo been moro than doubled, I'nder tho contract with private firms the Government Is now having manufactured ft largo number of guns In addition tit those building at tho Wntcrvllet factory, and In an emergency tho output of both establishments could bo easily doiiblid In a short time.

While. .Mr. Lamont will not rail fornn Inrreuse In tho army's standing strength, ho will direct attention tit the ahsoluto necessity of greatly enlarging the artillery branch of tbeservlie. In order to meet the reqiilrcinenti that will bo Imputed by the extended extensive roat do fence projects. Every portwheredefenres are tit be lonitul will call forartlllery companies, and with the present limit of live regiments the Sec retary believes It will not be possible to man one. tenth of tho forts contemplated In tho pro gramme, lln advocates, therefore, an increuo of thu artillery brunch to nt least seven regl. inents. He shows that 100 distinct batteries grouped In twenty nr moro harbors, are neces sary, ami n each garrison n sufficient strength must hi. muintnlned to properly cure for the guns and protect tho hiirunrn.

Arrested for the Mnrder or Cnpt. MutllKiio, Commits rJulelde. Sauoehtifr, Nov. 2B. Frank Doherty, who was arretted on suspicion of having been con cerned In tho murder and robbory of Cnpt. Mulligan on Friday rnornnir last, committed suloldo In tho vlllago lockup Inst night. Dohertr was seen In Thomas's ssloonin tho evening that Mulligan was there At he had slept In a barn with a gang of others of his class, and was said to have sneaked from the barn before daylight after tho murder, and had scratches on bis face. Detective John T. McCullogh of New York and Constablo Abcel arrested him. Ho said that ho received tho scratches on hts face. In a fight with n man of tbe name of Slnde. This man, when brought to tho lookup, hesitatingly ad mitted that they had been fighting. Tho last teen of Doherty allvo was at about 10 o'clock last night, when Constnble David E. Abeoland Dctcctlvo McCullough visited him. Up to the time of their visit he soomed cheerful and they found him singing loudly. They told htm some things they had discovered during tho day, pressed htm strongly to make n confession, and left him with tho Injunction to think tho mnttor over and glvo Ihcm his answer this morning. Just what they had discovered Is not known to any one but the two detectives, but It must havo Impressed Doherty with the Idea that his doom was scaled. He was not hoard Ringing any muro and nobody went to look after him until Con stable Abeel took In his breakfast this morning and found his dead body In tie coll. Last night u milk bottio wns tilled with coffee nnd left with Doherty. Ho broke the neck oft this bottle, leaving two sharp prongs of glass projecting, and with this he had hacked away nt his throat until a largo blood vesel was sev ered, and be bled lo death. Tho cell In which Doherty was confined Is an Iron case, built In one corner of a room on the ground iloorof Firemen's Hall. Tho building is not occupied by any person except when prisoners are In thu cells. The quarters wero much bettor than Doherty had bcon accustomed to, and he was generally thought to bo havlug a good time, as had plenty to eat. He said that on tho night nf the mnrder of Capl. Mulligan bo was to drunk ho did nut know whero he was or who ho was with. Ho was cheerful until visited by tbe detectives last night. What they told him was evidently of such a character as to convince htm that his connection with tho murder was known. They admit that he seemed to be deeply Impressed with their message. Until tbe suicide of Do herty gavo confirmation to tho publlo of the suspicions of the detectives, the general Im pression In Saugertles was that Doherty had nothing to do with tbe murder. 1 ho basis of this belief was that he was too much of a cow ard. But tbe theory that the) mnrder was com mitted In desperation to conceal the crime of robbery goes fsr toward showing bow probable It is that Doherty was mixed up In It. Other ar rests are expected, as $1,000 reward Is offered for tho apprehension and conviction of tho murderers. TOPEKA'S 400 DBSVItTED WIVES. Judcte Haxen'sTlesvn Concsmlag: the Z.arce Nnmber of Dlvoreast In Kansas. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 25,-iJndgo Ilazen of tho Shawneo District Court, who has granted moro divorces than any otber Judge in Topeka within four years, in a published statement to-day says that when a deserted wife oomes before him and applies for divorce on the ground of desertion for one year he has no other alterna tive but to grant the decree. This has been go ing on here for years, and there are now ovor 400 de-erted wives In this city. Many of them havo children, and dally some of them appeal to the authorities for clothing ana bread. Judge Uazen says there are two eanses for to many desertions. One Is hard times and the otber the failure of many young men to sup port their wives. He says many of the deserted and homeless wives In Torteka vero made snch by tho roving trlflers frotz.Ji A'ast who came out bere in search of faUnVij.vVjrtulie, Judio IIa7er. saya they get work, meet tome girl here, and after a short courtship marry. In a short time suoh a young man may get out of work, or at least steady work. Ills wife be comes a burden to him. Tie tires of her, and uniltr pretext of going Vett to look for work, gets away and cover comes back. Ho has no ties to hold him. In the East this condition does not exist. If a man remains In the East, having been raised there, lonir enough to mnrry and start a family, he is pretty apt to remain where his ties, natu ral and acquired, are. and he settles down for life and scrapes a living together as best ho can. "I see much of the marriage and separation question here. A good looking young woman comes Into court one day with ber witnesses and shows me that for one year her husband has failed to support her or live with her, and there Is nothing left for the court to do but grant the divorce she asks. "I feel Justified In saying that In nine out of ten divorce cases in this court there is no con test nor defence and tho prayer Is granted by default. Tho man In the case pays no attention whatever to tho dinrce proceedings against him If he ever hoars of them." KILLED F A CA11LE CAR. A Child Run Down While Croselac Upper Third Avenue. Julius Greonberg. the 0-year-old son of Moses L. Greeuberg. a dry-goods salesman living at 1070 Third avenue, was run over and killed al most In front of his homo yesterday afternoon by a cable car. At fit o'clock ho started to run across from the cast side ot the avenue to tho west side. Ho waited for a north-bound car to pass him. and then ran across tho track so closo to the rtar platform that he did not Fee a car that wan bound down town on tho other track. When he reached the down-town track thu car was so near him that the grlpmun could not stop it. The front plntform strnok him on the head, tossing him under tho body of the oar. Tho fender In front of the wheels rolled the boy along on tho uaemeiit. Ills skull was fractured and ho died almost Instantly. Several boys ho saw tbo accident ran to thn child's homo and told his mother that ho had beon hurt. She took his twin sister Sadie, and went to the East Eighty-eighth street police station, where the body had been taken.

Shares In tho Lady Hampton, n new Australian mine, the actual and par value of which Is $5, reached tho nominal quotation of S1.600 each, Tho history of tho deal is this: A few weeks ago tho stock of tho Lady Hamp ton Company was offered to tho publlo In the usual way at par.

They sent letters of regrutto all the publlo subscrib ers and allotted all tbo shares to thomsohos and tholr friends. Mr. Stoncbam found It Im possible to obtain tho stock to complote hts bar gain at any but prohibitive figures. It would cost blra $4,600,000 to get 3,000 shares at to day's quotations.

He brought with blm Father Wall and Father TIerney of tho Church of tho Holy Ro-nry, J. T. Lanlols of tho City Island M, E. Church, and Clarence Gordon of tho east side settlement to back his statement that tho Police Department has been purged of all dishonesty and corruption In matters regard ing appointments on tho force. Mr. Roosevelt said that tho Police Board wonted "dead game men who could take part In a football match." He said that tho Police Board did not discrimi nate against any creed, and that the best police men come from the ranks of the different churches and religious organizations. Father Wall said that when Mr Roosevelt took charge of tho Police Department he nt once became the most unpopular mun In tbo city, but that now he was raoldly growlnir the most popular. Five men from his parish, be said, had been appointed without any political pull. Mr. Roosevelt said that ho believed what Father Wall had raid about him being the most unpopular man to be perfectly true, nnd added: " Hut no one enjoyed my connection with the Pollen Board moro than I. 1 huvo had an ex tremely good tlmo.

Mr. Knapp has also sent n statement to tho momborsot tlo Commission, tolling them that they have overestimated the amount ot inonoy on hand, nnd hnve advertised more con tracts for publlo work than they are in a situa tion to pay for.

In n previous despatch 'i to The Sun on the Tonnossee eleotion frauds detailed figures wcro glvon to show that In the Tenth Congross district MoKlnlcy and the wholo sound-monov ticket were defrauded ot at I least 7,100 votes. There la not tho shadow of a f doubt as to that. Hundreds of good men stand !r ready to swoar to tho truth ot tho facts nar- ratod. Pursuing tbe disgraceful story of fraud ' andconsplrncy.lt Is to bo said that tbo Ninth, 4 Congress district also contrlbntcd its shameful ,' quota, and with motbods that oven more openly disregarded the rights of those men who bo- J lleved thnt sound money wns a necessary bass upon which to build the hopes of this oountry. - Tho man of all mon most bitterly hated by the I men who control tho Popocratlo machine In Tennesseo Is John U. McDowolL late Popullte- Republican candldato for Congress, and the . present contestant from the Ninth district, which district lies In the northwestern part of the Stato and Is composed of counties s closely akin. In population and history, to those A ot the Tenth, Mr. McDowell was formerly a '( Democrat, but was tho organizer of the Farm- if era' Alliance In Tennessee nnd tho father of the Popullte party. While still within the Demo cratic party he organized and led the prcllml- ' nary campaign In Tennessee which resulted In tbe capturo ot the Democratic Convention and tbe election of Buchanan as Governor. The re- ' turns from that election wore not In when the) old Demoaratlo leaders began to lay their plan to recapture the party machine. Two years later they succeeded In doing to by the first slecton of Gov. Turney. The campaign was fought with McDowell for a victim, and it was unprecedentedly bitter and abusive, for McDowell In the mean time had been appointed coal-oll inspector at Nashville. although living In Union City, ana was the head of the Buchanan "Rttchon cabinot." That In spectorship Is peculiar to Tennessee. Ita func tions are to Inspect coal oil by tbe flash process, and a sixteen-year-old boy can do It; but the cClco then paid from J10.000 ti 510,030. '- Mr, McDowell was high In the National Pop- - H nllst party. He was Sergeantat-Arms of tho jH National Committee and the friend and confl- Bj dant of the Chairman of that committee. In 4'H the St. Louis National Populist Convention ho ;;H resolutely held hla Tennessee delegates In the iH middle of tbe road until, it Is trustworthlly told ' H to The Suk correspondent, Washburn of Mas- '?Bj sachusetts brought the delegation a letter from -'.I Bryan telling them that the Nebraskan could 1 I trust tbem to make a good platform, and that IB be thereby bound himself. In tbe event of his H election, to know no differenco between Demo- H crats and Populists In the selection or the office- H holders under his administration. During tho BJ last campaign Mr. McDowell at nny time could .1 havo had tho promise ot tho boat office In tbo H State If ho would withdraw from his race for fl Congress, for ho was a "Mlddle-of-the-Road" I'Hj Watson man nnd was causing dally trouble for ill the fuslonlsts. jj9 For the foregoing reasons and bocause some J of tho counties had a very bad reputation for vtl election frauds, this Ninth district, with the 9 Tenth, caused much anxiety to tho sound- H:l money men In Tennessee. To guard as much as !l possible against fraud, and moro especially to 'fl prove their charges, every precinct In tho eight tl counties of the district had known nnd secret j M watchers. When a man presented himself as M a watcher In a product lacking tho confidence 'M ot the managers, men from other precincts M wcro sent. From theso men tho following facta fa are gathered, and they aro trustworthy: iM NEOltOES FniGriTEMIU AWAY. M Tho counties ot the district aro Weakley, ' I Gibson, Crockott, Haywood. Lauderdale, ' I Dyer, Obion, and Lake. If one of tbem 9 was free from fraud, lis name has not ' come to the ears of Tin: Sun's correspond- cnt. There was even moro of Intlmlda- 1 - tlon and bulldozing than in tho Tenth dls- . trlct- In almost every precinct whero the negro vote was heavy and tho white sound-money j men few, prearranged fights and rows were had early In the dav to frighten an ay the negroes. In Dyor county, at Dyersburg, tbo county scat, between flftecn nnd twenty whites set on one negro, knocked him down, beat his head to a Jelly, and, with drawn "guns," drove over a hundred neyroes moro than a mile from the polls. At Nowborn, while a crowd of negroes were getting their poll tax receipts from n Pop ulist constable, a mob dispersed tho negroes and drovo tbem from tbo election grounds, and only tbe rovolver of tho constablo tared hlra from violence. At Bogota the ltr) an men voted without presenting their poll lux receipts, 1 although It was for this alleged violation of 1 law by tho Republicans of East Tennessee In 1801 thnt Evans was counted out after helno , elected Governor on tbo face nf thu returns. In this county tho elherltcs wero moro bar- - barous In their methods than their com patriots of the Tenth district, but they "got thore just the fame." Tho oto lu the county was: Republicans, 802; Popurrnts, 2,108; Populists, :ili:i. At least 400 should be added to tho Republicans and taken from the Popocrats to get tbo actual vuto ns It wns cast, making a differenco in tho count of over 800 Mites. ) Haywood shares tho bad repute with l.nudcr dale, Madison, and Fayette of being among; the most thoroughly corrupt In thu State In mntters ', of election frauds. Thu negroes of otlug age 1 outnumber tho whites by 1,002, mid a fair count ; and vote would have glwn tbo county tu the ' sound-money mon by a minimum plurality ot 1.1100; but tbo count ga en plurality of 1,11(10 to ! thosllvcrltcs. a change of 2,000 votes. In tho . county there wero puinlu boxes nt Iho of the 5 precincts whero ft wns known by experience) ' that fraud would bo perpetrated, nnd where no representation had bicn given to the minority ' In the election Boards. Although representa- ' Hon was requested nnd demandid i.s aright, j the County Court laughed at the applicants. At those precincts when a Republican asked Jl for a ticket two would bu glvon to him, One of If them, with his numo 011 thu buck, was depoilted yj In tho private box, and tho other In theofAolal hi box. A record was kept of those voting In tbs V private box, ami the men are ready to swear be- y fore any court or Investigating committee bow (4 they voted. At F.urekalon 73 votes were depot- J tied In the private box; tho offlclal count gave J? the sound-money candidates 28 votes. In pre- f;i clnct Nn 11 lhu sound-money candidates wero tj1 cheated outnf 187votis; In No, 2, out of 100j U, In No. 7. nut of 240 votes. McDowell for t'on.
