Official returns will show the elec
tion of John M. Railey, Democrat, for
president judge, by about l,2iM) majori
ty in the Huntingdon Miillin district.
He has carried Miillin county by 700,
and Huntingdon county will give him
at least 5H. Ijist year Hastings carried
Huntingdon county by over 2,tKH.
The defeat of Williamson, Republican,
has been crushing. He carried but few
of the fifty nine districts in the county.
David Wilson Democrat, is elected sher
iff over T. I. C Ripple by several hun
dred. I.ATFR and more complete returns
have added materially to tiie earlier re
turns in the vote for Smith, Democrat,
fr superior court judge, particularly in
the anthracite coal counties, where
mith gets a remarkably large vote over
that of the other Democratic candidates
for suierior court judge. These later
returns now leave it doubtful whether
Yerkes or Smith will be the minority
representative on the superior court

turns from the missing counties will
show that Smith has the larger vote of
the two. The other Iemocratic candi
dates run considerably behind YerkeS

Thk new Carnegie library, donated to
the city of Pittsburg by the noted iron
king, was formally dedicated on Wed-ner-day
uight. Addresses were made by
Andrew Carnegie, Uovernor Hastings
and other distinguished gentlemen.
W. N. Frew, president of the board of
trustees, says that Mr. Carnegie intends
increasing his gift by auothi r $l,0tx,
OOO for the establishment of a fund for
the purchase of works for the art gallery.
He said that this would furnish a year
ly income of SoO.UW for that purpose.
This last donation will bring the sum of
Mr. Carnegie's gifts to the population
of the Ci renter Pittsburg to the splendid
total of $5,0(0,W0.
This week's American Agriculturist has
a valuable article on the potato crop of
the country for 18'.'5. It seems that
this year's yield i something phenom
enal no other year approaching its
magnificent total. The crop measures
up over 2S'2,lHJO,t00 bushels, against
only 13.000,000 last year.
The Pacific coast is the only region
where the crop shows a falling off,
while the Empire state largely takes the
lead with over -10,500,000 bushels,
against 2S,5OO,0iH bushels last year.
The percentage of increase is none the
less marked in Pennsylvania, Michigan,
Illiuois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri,
Kansas, and indeed, everywhere in the
Central and Western states.
Canada is no exception to the rule of a
bountiful crop, the one 1S'.5 yield close
ly approximating 57.H0,000 bushels,
a material increase over last year's crop.
Peter P. mith. of cranton, who is
the successful Democrat elected on the
fsurior leueh one of the foremost liw
yers of the state was born at Honesdale,
Wayne county, June 2. 1831. He at
tended the public schools and later the
Honesdale academy, of which he is
graduate. The natural bent of his mind
leing toward the legal profession. He
entered uion the study of the law and
was admitted to the Wayne county
bar on May 7, 1S74. He immediately
took a commanding place among the
practioners at the liar, and in 1875 was
nominated and elected district attorney
of Wayne county. At the expiration of
bis term he was renominated, but de
clined iu order to give individual atten
tion to his rapidity increasing private
practice in Wayne and adjoining cojD
Eight years asro Mr. Smith moved to
the ciiy of Scrantou, where he has
large practice, and has been engaged in
some of the most important cases aris
ing in the courts. He was appointed
additional law judge by governor Patti
toa in Decern ter. lSt'2, to fill the va
cancy caused by the death of Jude Con
Dolly, and discharged the duties of the
ollie with such distinguished ability
and impartionality as to earn the high
est commendations of members of the
bar, without regard to party affiliations
Judge Smith was nominated by th
Democrats to succeed himself, without
opposition, and Lis address of accept
ance, in which he discussed the fune
lions, resHnsibi!ities and privileges of
the judiciary, was one of the most dig
nilled and solidary expositions of the
subject to be found. He received by
far the largest vote ever cast for a Demo
cratic candidate for judge in Lackawan
na county, but was defeated by a very
narrow margin, notwithstanding the
jjreat tidal wave of Republicanism.
The Philadelphia Times of Wedues,
day morning gives the following edito
rial summary of the result of the elec
tion. The Republicans had a political pic-ni-
yesterday with only the Democratic
victory in .Mississippi to mar me .m
pleteness of their triumph. The elec
tions were simply a repetition of the
Democratic siiimp of last year, differing
only in degree.
In Mhss tchusett-s the Republicans
have swept the state by about their usual
majori'y. There was a feeble effort
made by the A. P. A.'s to defeat the
Republican candidate for governor, but
he rallied to his support the entire inde-
denpent vote of the state, and seems to
have gained from that element-quite
equal to his loss.
In New York Tammany has carried
the city by a comparatively small ma
jority, but st is unite large enough to
show that Tammany is again on top,
and that the disjointed reform elements
of the citv have broken in pieces. The
state is Republican by fully half the ma
jority of last year and probably more,
carrying both branches of the legisla
The Republicans hold New Jersey by
a majority of probably one fourth of
that received last year on the congress
ional vote, but it is large enough to give
them possession of every department of
authority in the state, aud to anchor
New Jersey as a more than probable lie
publican state next year. When so ex
cellent a can Jidate as Chancellor McOill
can le defeated ly a large majority in
a square fight, it means that the Dem.
ocrats of New Jersey have hopelessly lost
their grip and might as well go into Ii
Maryland gives a sweeping revolution
in favor of the Republicans. They have
carried both the city of Baltimore, elect-
ng their entire ticket, and also the state
by a large majority, with the legislature
that is to elect a United States Senator.
It seems to be an utter overthrow of the
Gorman power.
In Ohio the Republicans have carried
the entire state ticket and both branches
of the legislature, by even more than
the normal majority of the party. Their
majority on the state ticket is probably
puite one-half of the phenomenal ma
jority of last yenr.
In Iowa the Republcans swept the
state. Of course the success of th 3 en-
lire state ticket was conceded on all sides,
ind the only dispute was as to the ma-
ority. It is now quite large enough to
how that the Democratic organization
f the state is pretty well retired from
Even Kentucky is included in the
general Republican hurricane. The
ntire state ticket seems to
e elected by majorities ranging from
,000 to 15,000, but the legislature is
n doubt. This is the first triumuh the
iepublicans of Kentucky have ever
achieved since the organization of the
iepublican party.

The phenomenal Republican victory of
18'.4 marked the topmost limit of re-
iction. This year, although the Demo
crats remain dispirited, benumbed and
inactive, the Kepublirans show no ad
ded capability of offense. Their ma
jorities have been reduced. Where the
Democrats have leen beaten in Demo
cratic states as a rule they have not de
served to be victorious. The defeat in
iventucky of the free silver candidate
or governor is of more worth to the
Democratic party than would have been

One of the most noteworthy events in
the recent history of Canada is the for

President Cleveland has, in accordance

Judge Ixchren, Commissioner of pen
sions, lias a paragraph in his annual re
port headed "Patriotism and Pensions,"
in which he says those whs fought the
battles of the war were not moved by
mercenary considerations, and unless
actually disabled did not show the haste
iu applying for pensions manifested by
those who enlisted near the close of the
war for large bounties, and did little ac
tual service, and who are now the nois
iest in clamoring for more pensions.
As compared with this latter class the
real soldiers of the war have been modest
in preferring claims for pensions."

He says Mr. Harrisoa is stronger with
his party in Indiana than ever liefore

going to get him nominated, if such a
thing is possible. Speaking of the Dem
ocratic nomination- Mr. Bvnum said:
'On the Democratic side there is much
talk in favor of Col. Morrison, and he
has many friauds iu all part- of the

Belleville, N. J., Nov. 5. A sneak

hands of Mrs. Daniel Neely, of Mill
street, yesterday morning. Alout
o'clock a mau entered the yard and,
going to the back door of the house,
tried it. riuding it locked the stranger
went over to a clothesline aud taking
suit of clothes, which had lieen put out
for an airing, went into an ou( house.
Mrs Neely hearing the noise at the back
door, looked out of the window in time
to see the man disappear. At the same
time Mrs. Neely discovered that the suit
of clothes, which was owned by one of
her boaders, had also disappeared.
Judging that the mau had taken the
suit of clothes, Mrs. Neely armed her
self with a large club and took up a po
si'.ion at the door of the outhouse
When the man came out she demanded
that he return the clothes. The stran

built proportionately, denied the theft
His bulky form, however, showed that
he had tucked the stolen articles under

of the club, Mrs. Neely compelled the
man to give up the stolen suit and, af

the club, while her neighbors nrged her
on, she allowed him to go limping from

which Mr. Carnes came near losing his
life. They had secured the services ot
Peter Mayer, the well known guide,
who had placed thm on the Woodtown
runway near two or three runways lead
ing to Walker Pond, in Shohola town
ship. Mayer left them there to drive in
the game. An hour's wait brought a
big buck bounding up the Bald Hill run
way. When opposite Mr. Carnes he
fired a charge of buckshot which
brought the deer partially down. Mr.
Simpson followed with a ball from his
rille and the deer fell over on its side.
Both meu came from cover with knives
n hand to cut the animal's throat.
The tiuck, badly wounded, jumped to
ts feet, and, catching Mr. Simpson with
ts antlers, tossed him over a boulder,
nd then attacked Mr. Carnes, striking
him with its hoofs and felling him to
the ground. The infuriated beast pawed
the prostrate man on his breast and
inns, lunicting severe injuries. He
would probably have lieen killed had
not Mr. Mayer arrived, who sent a ball
nto the heart of the buck. It weighed
240 pounds dressed.

isseiled his lielief that Fitzsiminons was

would have taken place but for Julian's
