Ths li most surprising feature of tho attempt to do- ,3 feat his return to the Senate is the fact that m Senator Forake"-. Gov. Bushnell and Charles L. .

Rep resentative Calo, who introduced tho mcasuro, had smooth sailing In its passage, though there was considerable underground opposition, w blch did not hare courago enough to como to tho light. Tho game in which young Gammon lost his lifo was between two universities. Two-thirds of tho tnombcrs of tho Georgia Legislature como from the rural clement.

Tho farmer members say that tho Unlverslts Is robbing them of their land scrip money, which should go to an agricultural collcgo, where fnrmers would be mado, nnd not lawyers or doctors; hence they woro against tho university nnd Its sports, and tho friends of tho university were handicapped by their ambition for public office Consequently, when tho roll was callod upon tho antl-footbull bill to-day, there wcro only threo votes against it.

Wasiunotom, Nov. 8. Tho Interstato Com merce law to-day received another sovcro blow at ths hands of the Supreme Court. Tho long pending appeal of tho commission from the Judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit In tho matter of tho order of tho commis sion against tho Alabama Midland, Georgia Central, and other railroads, was decided against tho commission, tho action of the court below being affirmed. Justlco Shtras, announc ing the opinion of tho court, said that tho case arose upon tho effort of tho commission to en force Its order mado against tho railroads on tho petition of merchants of Troy. Ala., who alleged that tho railroads wero violating tho provisions of the fourth section of tho act, popularly know n as "the long and short haul clause." Two ques tions arose in the consideration of the case said Justice Shlras: 1. Could competition caused by rival railroads and water routes be taken into consideration us showing that the circumstance of the two routes wcro not substantially similar ! 2. If tho circumstances woro found to be not substantially similar, could the railroads them selves, in tho tlrst Instance, without appealing to the commission, niako allowance in their schedule of rates for that fact I Both tho Circuit Court and Court of Appeals had substantially decided these questions in ths afUrmative, aud in their conclusion, said Jus tice Shlras. the Supremo Court concurred. Mr. Justice Harlan announced his dissent. Taken in connection with former decisions, he said, this decision went far toward defeating the objects arrived at In the passage of the law. It not only minimized tho power of the Commis sioners beyond the intention of Capgresa. but it put it in the power or railroad companies, by rermlttlng them to determine for themselves be quality of competition, to destroy the busi ness of dealers at intermediate points.

In a little while ho returned very drunk, and, accusing Smith of stealing his fob, punched his face and struck him with his shovel until Smith gave it up. Smith lingered In tho neigh borhood until Springer finished storing tho coal and had been paid. Then he demanded pay ment for the part of tho work ho had done. Springer gavo him a dime, but Smith claimed 10 cents more. Springer refused to give him another cent, and Unally started oft towurd Urnnd street. Smith wutehed him for a moment nnd then ran after him nnd struck him a heavy blow on tho head with his shovel.

County Clerk Jacob Worth of Brooklyn Issued yestorday a carefully prepared statement In tho form of nn Intcrvlow with himself. Mostof It was dovotod to abuso of Senator Piatt as a po litical leader. Tho Brooklyn ex-boss ascribes Republican defeat to tho refusal of Senator Piatt to accept Scth Low as tho Republican can didate. Ho alleges tho use of Fed oral patronage to secure tbo nomination of Gen. Tracy. Of tho City Convention he says: " Had ho Mr. Piatt boon a prlvato citizen, as ho was two years ago, no power that ho or any body clso could have possessed would havo been strong enough to provent that convention from placing Seth Low before tho voters of Greater New York as the candidate of the Ropubllcin party for Mayor, for tho great body of Republi cans knuw that tho circumstances surrounding tho position of both parties In Greater Now York wasof such a character that It was necessary that n coilltion bo formed of all tho Independ ents In order to accomplish tho defeat of Tam many Hall." Mr. Worth's explanation of Mr. Low's unify ing force proposition is unique. Hero it Is: "When Mr. Low made that declaration ho had uo thought of becoming a unifying forco ns between tho Piatt convention and the Independ ents, but between the se eral bodl"s represent ing tho enormous numherof Independent voter". Tho unifying forco ho had In mind was that possessed by a man who could secure tho united support of ths Inde pendent organizations which joined to gether for tho purpo3o of preventing the success of Tammany Hall, nnd which was ex pected to be tho ouly unifying forco necessary to convince Republicans of tho necessity of his nomination. It did not follow, and it was not to bo expected, that tho party that was liO.OOO or 70,01)0 In tbo minority, as was the Republican party, could produce that unifying force. A man liko Mr. Liw, fortified by thu entire inde pendent voto, was such a force, nud no man could bo who was put forth by the Individual power exercised by a stranger to Greater Now York, ns far, at any rate, as votiug lu tho city is concerned." He follows this with nn explanation that tho Citizens' Union could not have withdrawn low for another candidate who would bo acci ptahlo to tho Ropubllcan organization, because, the Cits had organized and agltatod for tho election of Loir only, and could not transfer their sup port to anothor. Tho defeat of the Republican State ticket Mr. Worth also cheerfully piles on Senator Piatt's shoulders. '1 hen be asks himself this question rcgirdlng the Senator, and answers it promptly as follows: " Do 3 on expect that he will have ths same In fluence in the same direction in the future I" "In answer to that," was tho reply, "I may say that Citizens' organizations will bo formed in New York and Brouklyn, uud If not In every county in the State, nt least In every one ot tho larger cities. Iniirookljn and New Vork they will represent more than ono-half of the Repub lican votors: that claim ol Republican voters that takes out ot tho Republican party in these municipal contests all the moral forco thero is In it; that portion of the Republican votors not only self-supporting, but never looking for any thing out of tbo success ot the party. Tboso men are dissatisfied, and tbey aro the men u nn whom the party must rely In the future for success." Ths next question and answer In Mr. Worth's monologue are these: "Will the departure of this forco make tho control of w hat Is left any easier I" "No. It will not, for tho reason that nil tbeso men who are now or may be in tho future look ing for positions to bo given by the general Gov ernment will remain, while none or them will bo connected with the Citizens' organization ot Brooklyn, New York, or any other city. As to tho precise form of organization I cannot say Juatnovv. There will be an organization hs to system, and there will be a governing body In each city, but as to the construction iu detail I am not at present In the position togivo information. The organization mnynot be constituted like the Republican organization, because tho men who will compose it aro patriotic citizens. They are men of moans and business, and they represent the Intelligence of tbo party nnd the community. The conditions that have made this movement necessary aro ltastapprrciated bv Senator PlatU II o is either utterly Ignorant of tho sentiment of tho Republicans and Independents, or else, knowing It, determines to thwart I U Ho acts thu part of a man used to being In ihe minority and willing to remain there, engulfed inselllauand obsolem political Ideas, rattier than keen pace with tho constantly occurring changes In tho views ot the voters iu municipal contests, and make nn effort to transform tho minority Into the majority." Then follows tho nsnertions that the Senator is an assistant Democrat; that machine Repub licans voted for Van Wyrk, and that thej cut Republican Assembly candidates Indorsed by tbo Cltizans' Union, Mr. Worth th-n ventures to ask himself if lie liellovestb.it President Mc KInley will be controlled or Influent ed by Sen ator Piatt in future. lie falls to giro himself n direct answer, but asks. "Why should he bo I" nil " Wliv alimtli! thi, lFAQ(Hn,if nf t In, I TtillA.f States cater lu a man who made such a misera ble failure in the city mid .Stale of New York and permit him to control tho patronage in the Interest of a faction of tho party that Is in themlnoiitvl" He suggests tho possibility of a Republican Tammany Hall deal in the legislature, nnd pre diets that If ouo Is utlcmplcd the ontire nto cast for President .McKInley In the Stnto will loavo the pari. Mr Worth dlsrl ilnis ambition to bo the leader In tbo new movement ho out lines. Mr. Wortli intimates further that he is troubled witli a suspicion that somebody kept Richard Crokcr Informed aliout thofondltion of things in the Republican party bo that he was assured that he could nominate and elect Jus tice Van Wyck for Mayor, llin Ing uttered this supplclonhesays: "This brings us too uow condition of nffairs, when tho two parties aro. through their leaders, brought into contact with each oilier. It is a daugerous condition, for the only safety lies In keeping them apart. From tho very moment that It becomes tho part of loaders of the two parties to enter upon an titidei.sianding with each otlier, our ery system ot government Ih menaced, nnd government by paity becomes u delusion and n farce," Worth closed his statemcntwlththo following utterance: "A man who will sacrifice his election for his nomination because he Is so anxious lo run for alike well, thero Is nothing In such a diameter to Justify the expenditure of tlmo in discussing him or w hat ho docs." Worth's talk about the formation of Cill reus' organizations throughout the State whb not well received by the original Cits. They were not satisfied with his disclaimer of floslro to lend thniuoieuu'iit, and they suld that thoy thought any such movement would pros per bettor if It were Inaugurated br nmio otlier person than tho discredited Brooklyn lender. faenator Plait rofused to discuss Worth's statement, ns ho consistently refused to luply to Worth during the campaign. 0O31PLEXIOX Of THE A.S9E3!

Six flat CalU Dtipatch to Tn Sen. Paiiis, Nov. 8, a sensation was caUBed here to-day by a report that tho father, mother, and threo Bisters of ox-Copt. Dreyfus, who was tie graded from tho army nnd sontonccd to lifo Im prisonment fur betraying French military se crets to n foreign government, had been found dead from asphyxiation nt their home, 2(1 Ao nueMarceau, It was at once assunvd by tho publio that thoy hud committed suicide bocauso ot the action of the Cabinet on Saturday In re fusing to set asldo tho Judgment of tho court martial which condomncd Dreyfus. Later It was deniod that tho dead persons were so closely relatod to Dreyfus. They cer tainly wcro not his father, mother, and sisters, as the man wns only -10 years old nnd tho woman 00, wnllo tho threo girls wcro mcro children. Thero Is no doubt, however, that tho deothof the father and mother, nt least, was self-planned nnu mat tucuceu was duo to money losses sus tained by tho head of the family. 1 ho namo of thu suicides was Dreyfus. Apart from their doubtful connection with tho con demned B0-cal led "traitor," tho tragedy is in teresting In itsrlf. Tho man wns n prosperous merchant, but his family connections are somewhat confticling ly reported. It Is nscrtod that his wife was born Countess O'Hagerty, and that Bhe belonged to nn old Irish family who had been connected for generations with the French court. In tho face of this asser tion tho fact is known that tbo children woro onterod upon a school register as being Israel ites ot American origin. Tho death of the family waB brought about by the fumen of charcoal burnod In a brazier. The father left four letters, ono of which was addressed to tho editor of tho Tcmjis. In It ho declared that bo was neither wicked nor insane. Ho had been ruined by a rogue whom tho law could not touch, and ho contended that ho had a perfect right to take his own life. After urging all who aro tired ot tho world to follow his example, ho said: "It roqulrcs a llttlo courage, and then all Is over." Ho declared that his wifo voluntarily yield ed her lifo, and then said: "As for my children, the question Is more delicate. Not knowing what lifo Is. they can not choose for themselves, and as It be longs to mo to take the decision I consider that I render them a service In not leaving them alone in the world. The60 chil dren, whom I adore, have always been Tery happy. They had nothing but happiness, and I am determined that thoy shall not know grief." The children wero nged lit. 11, and 7 years. Families of the namu of Dreyfus are very common in Purls. Tho father-in-law of tho convict Dreyfus says that ha did not know the suicides. Nevertheless, it is supposed that tho man who killed himself was a couslu ot tho ox-Captatn. It Is snld that ho was affected by the disgrace brought on his family by tbo conviction of his cousin, nnd for that reason had lately adopted the maiden namo of blB wifo. MIXXRAZS IX THE CAUCASUS.
