I To Shrewd Polltlcul Observers the Dem ocrats Seem to Have the Advantage. fpeWal Dispatch to The Evehim Btac. FoilADKL.ruia, Oct. 25.?The political cam paign in Pennsylvania has been the most heated, with probably the siugle exception of : "'72," that has eTer been witnessed. It is doubtful whether the memorable contest between Hartrr.nft and Buckalew for the gubernatorial oflica approached in violence that which has been going on for weeks be* tween Delam.iterand I'attison. The excitement certainly never ran higher than now. Every body is talking politics and everybody is road ing all the campaign literature that appears in the daily papers. SENTIMENT THREE WEEKS AOO. Until about three weeks ago the republicans were conducting their contest in a half-spirited way. They were ou the defensive, and the I leaders, including Chairman Audrews of the state committee, seemed to be in daily fear of fresh charges, bath against the gubernatorial candidate and Senator Quay, who is credited with the responsibility of naming the head of the ticket The democrats, on the other hand, with their candidate, who has always found favor in the eyes of a large class of republicans of inde Itendent proelivitics. entered the contest full of tope and confidence. CHAIBXAX KERR C05FIDEXT. Chairman Kerr of their state committee, from the day of the opening of the campaign, has Impressed every one with whom he has been brought in contact with the sincerity of his declaration. He is today even more sanguine of success than six weeks' ago. Now he predtets the election of Fatuson by a majority of at least 25.000. The democratic managers have found in the inde pendent republicans. under the lead of George k Mapes. powerful allies. Their campaign, while againet Dclamatcr and for the success of Fatuson, is for the overthrow of Senator Quay. Today they express confidence in the result and talk of the election of the demo cratic candidate as a forgone conclusion. REPUBLICANS AGGRESSIVE. The republican fi^rht has been made ag gressive since ex-Chairman Cooper has been ] called in to assist Andrews. Hope has been i inspired, but with the apparent change that I has taken place thi-Te are many active men ] who look with fear upon the result. All the ' powerful agencies that can forcibly be em ployed arc being brought into the contest by the republican managers, and yet it is a signifi cant fact that ttiere are few willing to stake money upon the issue. Viewed by shrewd political observers the ( fight at best is a close one, with the advantago in favor of the democratic cundidate for gov ernor. The democratic organizations iu the contest have been exceedingly active and ap pearances indicate that they have not been lacking for the uecessary funds. Hon. Geo. D. Wise to Be Opposed. Special Dispatch to The Eyemko Star Richmond. Va., Oct. 25.?It is certain now that Hon. Geo. D. Wise, the democratic nomi nee for Congress in this district, will have op position. John Mitchell, the editor of the I'l tntt (colored) of this city, will no doubt be nominated on Monday. Mitchell, in the last issue of his paper, r at severe in his denuncia tion of Mahone'a republican district committee for not making a nomination. A mass meeting will be held Monday, when these views may be indorsed and Mitchell nominated. GUILTY OF DOl'BLE MURDER. William Blaney Convicted of Killing Two of His Relatives. Baltimore, Mo., Oct 25.?William Blaney, who has been on trial in the criminal court for the past four days for murdering his grand mother and his aunt some months ago, was this morning adjudged guilty of murder in the first digree. The jury retired at H o'clock last night nndreached a conclusion three hours luter. A motion for a new trial was at once made by defendant's counsel. It is thought that Blaney had an accomplice in the murder, but he stolidly refuses to disclose who he waa. In Wall Street Today. New York. Oct 25.?The stock market was very narrow this morning, and while there was a moderate degree of activity, the interest and the business done were almost all in the few* stocks to which the bears paid particular attention vvsterUay. Migar, while leading in the dealings, was rather more quiet than yesterday, bnt Union Faeifio showed "mere activity, and with St Faul, Chicago gas and one or two others gave tone to the uiarke*.

British and German Iron and Steel Men Capture the Town. THKT OOT EIRE BABLT THIS *OKXI*<J AMD ABB BKJOTIIfO 7HB DAI BIOHT-BSBISO?VISITS TO THE rrBLIC BUILDIXOS AND WATT TABD?8*1 CIAL RECEPTION BT THB PRESIDENT. From the tell flag staff on top of the Arling ton floats ft huge English flag that was flung to the cool west breeze this morning. A few people failed to understand the significance of the emblem, bnt a majority knew at once that the expected foreign gaeits were here on time. Between foar and fire hundred mem bers 'of the British Iron and Steel Institute and the Verein Deutscher Eissenhuettenleute arrived in this city some time between midnght and daylight, in fact about 2:30 this morning, but the foreigners themselves did not know what time it was, for wheu tboy woke up this morning they were in tlie 6th street station and were at liberty to get up and make their war to their respective hotels whenever they chose. TUB TABTT moi THE HOCTH was due here last night about 9 o'clock, but owing to delays on the railroad it failed to put in an appearance on schedule time. At Chi cago the excursion divided, one part going up around the great lakes, but the larger portion to Alabama and Tennessee. This southern ex cursion has brought forth statements from prominent Englishmen that thero is no place in the world where iron can be so cheaply produced as in ? the southern United States. The last stop made by the southern contingent was at Luray Cave, and from there they started for this city on three special trains made up of the finest sleeping cars, hotel, tourist and pri vate cars that could possibly be obtained. It was found yesterday that the three trains were too heavy and some cars were taken from each and a fourth made up that was put iu ahead of the third section. At Kiverton the engine of the new section Jumped a switch and a delay of several hours was occasioned there. THB XOBTHEBN PABTT arrived in the city a few honrs later, and by 9 o'clock the corridors of the Arlington, Willard's and the Ebbitt were scones of bustling act' vity. Such an imposing array of Englishmen has probably not been seen in this city since the year 1814, when a number of tho previ ous generation came on less friendly purposes intent and succeeded iu doing considerable damage to the Capitol and other public buildings. A more agreeable and welcome party of guests could not be asked for than the present collection of English and German iron men. The former so largely outnumber the latter, however, that they give a decided British tinge to the whole party. They are a fine looning bodv of men, with a clean-cut, beef-fed, healthy air about them that showed evidences of good living and plenty of out door exercise. A large number of young men are in the party, big strapping fellows, who lookod like cricket aud tennis playets, every one of them. Their clothes, boots and hats, fresh from London, aud the genuine English accent that they bad with them, wore quite a revelation to the local admirers of their style, aud shrewd guessers on the avenuo today were prophesying A FRESH OUTBREAK Of ANGLOMANIA. Almost every man in the party was providod with a short English pipo, and more men were to be seen on the streets today puffing a more or less fragrant briar than is often tko case in this country. It is safe to say that hereafter pipes will be quite the proper thing. Ouo noticeable fact, though, was that many of the younger set have taken up with the seductive American cigarette, aud make use of them on everr possible occasion. No sooner were the visitors safe at tbo hotels than the members of the local commit tee on reception were besiege 1 with the ques tion: "And bow soon mav we have our lug gage. don't you know?" But the preparations that have been made for days ahead did not go astray in any particular, and before 10 o'clock great wagon loads of trunks, pasted over with nil sorts of foreign looking mnrks and tags, were dumped down in front of the hotels, and many of the travelers disappeared into their rooms. In a little while they came forth look ing as fresh and comfortable as though thev lived in tho city and had never thought of such things aB jumping from town to town in a hurry aud living in trains for a month. THEY WANTED TO KNOW, TOU KNOW. But how they did ask questions! "Where are we to go first?" "Is thai the Capitol down the street? * "How do we go to get to the navy yard?" "Where does Mr. Harrison hold forthV" "W hat are tho plans for the aay?" and a thou sand and one beside that were enough to drive most people distracted. But several members of the locnl committee were on hand to nnswer and to plan for them. Sec retary Day was here, there and everywhere, and it wan not long before order was brought out of what had looked like chaos. It was not chaos, though, for the travelers have been on the road too long not to kuow how to take care of themselves nnder any circumstances it nec essary. ?IOHT RKEIICO. At each of the departments and points of interest gentlemen were on band and deputed to look out for the sight seers, and the guests were told at the hotel where to go first and how to go to get there. Some started out at once to do the patent and post offices and to be introduced to the heads of the depart ments. Others headed first for the Treasury, while a large part went to the Capitol and from thero to the navy yard, where they had been told they would see a great deal in the new ordnance works that would interest iron men. For several days past large quantities of mail with foreign postmarks have been accu mulating at the hotels and in tho hands of the locnl committee, and the visitors who were lucky enough to get a share delayed their departure from the hotels awhile on that account. Tho waiting rooms were crowded all through tho morning aud letters by the score were sent off. presumably giving an account ot first impression* of America's capital city. THB LOCAL. COMMITTEE having in charge the comlort of the visitors is composed of tbo following gentlemen: Maj. J. W. Powell, chairman; Dr. David T. Day, secretary; Gen. A W. Greely, Prof. 8. P. Lang ley, Gen. W. 8. ltosecrans. Dr. F. P, McLean, Dr. E. ltichards, Mr. Herman Hollerith. Prof. T. C. Meudeuhall, Commander F. M. Barber, Mr. Arnold Hague, Mr. 8. F. Emmons and Dr. T. M. Chatard. All their preparations for the entertainment of the distin guished visitors were made days in advunee, aud as a result of their care aud fore sight everything has gone off smoothly aud de lightfully so far aud not a hitch has occurred to mar the pleasure of the stay in this city. Still they were out in force today to look out for emergencies and to play the part of hosts. BRITISH LAD I KB BNJoT A DB1VB ABOOT THE CITT. In the party are between sixty and seventy ladies, matrons and pretty English girls, with their clear, healthy complexions and bright eyes. As a rule they were dressed in plain, business-like traveling gowns of tweeds aud cheviots, and broad, low-heeled shoes were tho order of the day. Dr. Day, thiuking that very likely the ladies had had about all the sight seeing and visits to irou works that they care for, had planned another sort of amusement for them. At 10 o'clock a tally-ho coach aud four drove up to the front of the Arlington and a few tnomeuts later a six-horse coach ap peared on the areue. In a short time thuy were covered with ladies aud then started off on a rapid trot for a long drive around the eitv, to the monument, the Capitol and out through Moldiers' Home. This occupied sev eral hours aud the ladies did not get back un til it was nlniost time to start for the afternoon reception at the White House. TUB VISITORS WBU PLEASED. All were enthusiastic over the success of the trip thejr have taken through the country and the hospitable treatment they have received on all sides. They were unanimous in their praise of the countrv, the peoplo. and in short every thing. Washington has already taken first place with them as a picturesque and beautiful city, bnt It must be admitted that, looking at it from the point of view that iron men cannot very well help taking, Washington ia not "in it" for a moment with Pittsburg. A Stab reporter who was showing a young German the way to hie hotel asked him what city had impressed him the most throughout hi* trip. ? Vy Pittsburg, of oouree. Oh, doee iron Torks?doee steel vorks nad doee natural gas, dey vaa amazing. Dere vas noddings also could be compared to it." 8till, (he day here was a delightful on* for all the visitors, even if therewae no natural gas display promised for the evening and nothing etupendons in the line of iron works for them to visit and study. No attempt was Marie to visit the departments la Urge parties. eaeh one being expeeled to amnse himself aa he choee. On their arrival in the eitv each guest was famished with a pamphlet to be nsea as a guide whila he wee here. In It were a lot of directions, a list of the piaees of internet and directions aa to bow to reach them, a map ot the cily, a list of tho drives around the oitv and even the ratea of oah fare, so that the stranger* coaid not well go a* tray, even if they tried. IKCUl UCimol BT THK PBF8IDEXT. At S o'clock the President held a (pedal re ception for the two inetitutee at the White Home. Owing to the feet that the Executive Mention ie etill in the hand* of the decora ton end refnrniehere, that rendering many of tne rooms unavailable, the reception by the Presi dent was neceeearily an informal one. ~Tlio local committee hare issued invitation* to all the (facets for a promenade concert at the Arlington, which promises to be a brilliant affair. In addition to the visitors only the members of tbe cabinet, tbe diplomatic corps, and a very tew prominent people of the city have been invited. The Marine Hand will famish the music and there will probably be singing by some local musical organizations besides. Moudav morning the party will leave here for Sparrow's Point, near Baltimore, to inspect the car works there, and then New York will be the first stop. It now looks as though tbe trip wonld have no formal ending, for a number of the party who have been on the sonthern trip will coutinue their excursion north to Niagara and to Canada, at they have been invited by the Canadian and Ottawan governments to visit a number of their cities and towns. This will postpone their re turn to New York and their departure for home nntil about the middle of November. HOKOB TO *nOX HOUO* 18 DC*. The two men who deserve the lion'a shore of the credit for the success of the whole excur sion from New York through the west and back again are Secretary Kirchhoff of tbe general committee of arrangements and Mr. W. P. Shinii, the president of the institute of mechanical engineers and chairman of the committee of transportation. It was due to tbe efforts of the latter that the visitors were supplied with such magnificent railroad ac commodations, and that the whole trip has been made without any trials or tribulatious. Secretary Kirchhoff was standing iu the lobby of the Arlington wheu a Star reporter found him this morning. Mr. Kirchhoff is the editor of the Irou Age and is a man of stand ing in the iron trade. He is a skilled linguist in additiou, for be was answering questions that were fired at him from all directions and was talking equally well in English, German and French, for there aro a few unattached Frenchmen in tbe party, But ho managed to get in a little conversation in good, plain American with The Stab man, when he was asked if it was altogether un easy task to man age an excursion so large as this one is. NOT SO BAST AS IT LOOKS. "Well, not altogether," said ho. "Of course Mr. Sbinn deserve* most of the credit, but really I think I can say that the whole affair ha* been a great success from beginning to end. Hut whan we left New York?well, if yon think it is an easy job to start off a party of that size you are away behind tbe time*. At the beginning there were about 600 in tbe party, though, of course, a good majority of them have dropped out from time to time. Hut think of supplying berths and meals on tbe trains for that number and you have tome idea of one smull part of the work that had to be done, etpecially if you take into comideration the fact that more than two-tliirds of the party had never been in an American deeping car before. Why every last one of them expected a lower berth, and the first to turn in was pretty likely to be tbe ouos that tooK them regardless of how they were allotted. Of course this was only at the first, for wo soon mauaged to get things somewhat straightened, and it did not take them long to learn the rope*. TUB AMBBICAN SPIRIT OF HOSPITALITY. "From firBt to last the wholo party have been treated with tbe mo*t lavish hospitality and everything has been done to give them a good timo. It is amazing at first thought, for there was nothing to be made out of it?no axe* to grind, you kuow. No such consideration as that could possibly have entered into the matter. 1 ascribe it all to the innate spirit of hospitality in tbe American people. Here they have a large body of foreigners who are in a sense their guests and they have seemed determined that the visitor* shall not go home until they kuow just how well Americans can do things when they try. The whole affair has been a big un dertaking and 1 am only too glad that it i* turning out as well as it seems to be." Then he turned away to tell a representative of tbe English nobility whero he would prob ably find his luggage and to inform a young German when the next mail froin the father land would arrive; in two languages and both at once. UNDERGROUND WIRES. Permit to the United States Electric Lighting Company. Permission was granted the United State* Electric Lighting Company today to lay under ground conduit* of approved pattern along the following named streets and avonues: On the south side of K street north, from 9th street west to Washington Circle; in earriageway of 14th street west, from Q street north to Florida avenue; in east sidewalk of New Hamp shire avenue, from Washington Circle to Dnpont Circle.

Samuel Walker, a colored man supposed to bo insane, was released yesterday aftor noon from the workhouse, where he had served two months for vagrancy. He reached the home of hit Bister, Emms Walker, No. 809 Grant avenue, soon after sun down, and his actions impressed his relatives more than ever with the suspicion that bis mind was affected. Between 8 and 9 o'clock p.m. he extinguished a lighted lamp and Eoured the oil on the floor. While doing this e was tinging a hymn. Then he got some matches and set firo to the oil. Fortu nately the flame* were extinguished before the house was injured much and Sam ! was locked up for arson, lie was taken to the I Police Court this morning and arraigned by Clerk Potts, who asked if he wa* guilty or not guilty. The prisoner's response was: "1 am inclined to fulfill the scriptures." Judge Miller heard evidence a* to the prison er'* insauity and the paper* were certified to the Secretary of the Interior in order to have him sent to the insane asylum. Important Real Estate Sale*.

Just afterward the judge took a bowl of beef tee with apparent relish and then sat down in & large arm ebair. A girl came into the room to comply with tome reauest or the judge, who said to her, "Tnank you." and a minute later he was dead. His head fell back on the chair and he passed away with a smile upon his face, show ing that the transition from life to eternity was absolutely painless. Undertaker Speare took charge of the re mains, and Mrs. Dr. Thayer, his only daughter, who resides in Waterville, Me., was immedi ately notified by telegraph of her father's death. She is expected here this evening. Mrs. Snell is greatly prostrated by her sudden be reavement BRIEF SKETCH OF HIS CAREER. Judge Snell was about sixty-eight years of 1 age and a native of Maine. He graduated at Bowdoin College about fifty-five year* ago, and for some years he engaged in teaching at St Albans Academy in Hartford.

After the war Judge Hue 11 came to this city and when the Police Court was established he was appointed to the judgeship, holding the position for three successive term* of six years each. On being succeeded by Judge Miller he, with Mr. Howard L. Prince (the former clerk of the Police Court), entered into law practice,having an office opposite the court house. Since then ho had been actively en gaged. having some important cases, among tliem that of Nelson Colbert, charged with the murder of Philip WenzelL He had been president of the board of mana ger* of the Associated Charities of the District of Columbia for the past live years, in which work ho took a deep interest For the past two years ho wss also a member of the board of di rectors of the Industrial Home School of the District of Columbia and of the board of di rectors of the Suburban Building Association.

ANNOUNCEMENT IS THE 1HJI.1CK COURT. This morning, soon after the Police Court convened, Mr. Campbell Carrington announced the death of Judge Snell. Mr. Carriugton said that it seemed but a day since he had seen the judge on the bench. "We are here to-iay," he said, "to say what we Raid when our departed friend was with us. The departed judge was true to the high trust reposed in him. He held the scales of justico with Rn oven and impar tial hand. The judicial ermine that was placed upon him nearly twenty years ago was laid down as pure aud unsullied as be first wore it. Our departed friend bore the white flower of a spotli ss judicial life, marked by absolute honesty, unswerving integrity, marked legal ability! a wonderful kuowedge of human na ture, and above ail a broad humanity aud char itable kindliness that marks uot only the firm, upright, merciful iu.lgo, but the warm hearted Christian gentleman." Judge Miller said that Mr. Carringtou had properly mentioned the death of the one who for so many years dispensed justice with an im partial hand. It was with inexpressible sorrow that he mentioned the death of Judge Snell, who, by long years of distinction, had wo:i the good will of the people aud the proud ;:ppolla tiou of a just judge, and it was right that some action should be taken to honor his memory, now that he is no longer with us. In the Equity Court today Mr. A. R Duvall announced the death of Judge Snell in feeling terms and moved the adjournment of tho court in respect to his memory. Judge Bradley made some appropriate remarks in ordering the adjournment. Sir. Perry Carson has called a meeting of the colored friends of the late Judge Snell at his hotel on Monday evening to take action in reference to the judge's death. Jurors Drawn.

AX FXHILERATINO MIDI THRorOH THE PICTr* EKjCE TiLLn-rULIUSUI OBSERVATIONS WITH A VIEW To LOCATION OF THX GREAT \ PARK?LOOKING FOR A BOUNDARY STOKE. The Bock Creek Park commission is ap proaching the conclusion of its survey Inborn. Its members have seen the tract in which the great reservation will finally be located and they have about made up their minds m to where the lines wiil run. Another day or two of exploration will settle this and then CaptRossell can start out on the final surveys, from which a map of the park will be constructed. That will ease tlie min i* of some people and disturb the equanimity of others. THE STABT. The cool nor'wegtem zephyrs were hunting around this morning for whiskers to blow through when two members of the commis sion assembled ou P street just west of Iowa circle. They were Secretary Langlcv of the Smithsonian Institution and Mr. R. Rose Perry. The former arrived ou the scene in his carriage; the latter awaited his arrival while leaning against the English saddle that was burdening the back of a chest nut mare. It was to be a horseback excur sion, so Prof. Lnnglev sent a messenger after the animal he was to bestride. Cupt. "Rosaell drove up in his buggy, leading behind the vehicle a pale-colored equine of meek demeanor. The Star reporter was there. Gen. Casey was not. business of an urgent nature compelled the chairman of the commission to lorego the pleasure of hav itig his interior depnrtmeut jarred out of posi tion while seeking new beauties over the hill and dale with which the Rock creek region is so liberally supplied. Gen. Boynton was ready in front of his home on It street between 13th and 14th w lieu the imposing procession approached and there was no delay. The occasion was a somewhat mem orable one for the general, it being only tiie second time since the close of the war that ho had indulged in equestrianism. Bat he hasn't forgotton how to ride. ENJOTIXO THE OZONE. The delicious air along the Broad Rranch road was remarked upon frequently and evi dently appreciated. Pierce's mill was ' passed at a rapid gait, and at times 1 the quiet country folk might havo easily , imagined that a horse race was [ in progress. From the Military road the party : branched off into the Daniels road; literally 1 and truthfully into it, for the soil was moist, to > put it mildly. A path erodes the termination of the Daniels road nnd along this toward the brown place. HrNTtSO FOR A nOCTCDAP.T STONE. At s tumble-down cottage a halt wtts made in order that information be obtained as to the whereabouts of one of the boundary atones. A young colored woman, surrounded by several children, numerous pigs, a number of taxless dogs and an assortment of chick ens. could throw no light on the subject, so Mr, Perry and Capt Rosse., j theglatter now mounted on his pale horse, j moved over the hills in search of a guide, j while Gen. Boynton and l'rof. Langley ! spread a huge map out beneath a persimmon \ tree and talked business. During tne abs< nee j of the boundary seekers a messenger arrived I with the professor's saddle horse, an 1 when j Mr. Perry and Capt. Rossell returned in com | pauy with a guide, but without the stone, | everybody was ready to move on. HUNTING FOR A NEEDLE IH A HAT8TACK. Led by Mr. Cummins, one of the landowners 1 whose property will bo required of him, the j party filed into the adjacent timber to look at ! the monument which marks a portion of the j northern line. As a search it resembled | very mueh the popular pastime of hunting for a needle in a haystack and it was just about as j successful. All the members of the band of ' explorers, with the exception of Gen. Bovntoil, ! stuck as closely as possible to Mr. Cummins. GEN. BOTNTON KISSING. The general went off by himself, and when the others had come to the definite conclusion that there wasn't anv such thing as a boundary monument within ?,'? miles the general was no where to be found. Of coarse no one supposed that the veteran woodsman. soldier and journa list would allow himself to be seriously mis placed, but every one did fear that he might have more than a little trouble in finding his way out of the dense growth, which was in places too thick tor the horses to break down or pene trate. So a motion was made to yell. Capt. Rowel I tried and did very well. Then he tried again and came within a trifle of breaking a record, to say nothing of straining hislun?s and cutting deep furrows in his throat. Commissioner Perry also startled the echoes and the horses by a regu lar B'ffalo Bull war whoop, after which he modestly retired to give The Star representa tive a chance. But there was no response and after poking a guide to direct the general should he turn up within fifteen minutes the little cavalcade moved sadly toward the bed of the creek, feeling convinced that unless the general was heard from within a week the Cincinnati Cotn iaere.nl GuttUe would have to fill a vacancy on its staff. BOUOH BIDINO THBOUOH THE WTLDEBNESS. It was a comparatively easy thing to say, "Let us ride down to the creck'* It was some thing else to do it. Dead leaves and moss and twigs covered the sloping and muddy soil to such a depth that tbo horses frequently sauk until th?-ir knees wore almost hidden in the decomposing mat>&. Springy brunches and elastic saplings gave way grace fully as the leader pushed them aside, and then tbev bounded back just in time to smite somebody's noso or cheek. Hands an d faces were scratched and the hard hats worn bv some of the adventurous ones looked' as though they might havo been res cued from beneath a few tons of brick. Green vines, many of them prickly as cactus, insinuated themselves between the knees of riders and the saddles, almost u nhors ing the victims,and while attempts were being made to get clear of the interrupting crcepers one man's horse tried to amputate KingsMs Oswego lUkn mat dellciona IOE CREAMS, PUDDINGS.
