PENNSYLVANIA'S HOT FIGHT.
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 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.
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

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.

Baltimore, Mo., Oct 25.?William Blaney,

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
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
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

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
? 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

was famished with a pamphlet to be nsea as a

directions aa to bow to reach them, a map ot

rooms unavailable, the reception by the Presi

~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
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
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

not complaining sufficiently to cau*e alarm to
his friends, although his physician, Dr. Walsh,

Yesterday the judge sat up all day and was
more than usually cheerful. Shortly after 8
o'clock last night Dr. Coney, pastor of the
Metropolitan M. E. Church, called and had a
brief conversation with the judge, saying ashe
left tbnt he would see him again this morning.
Just afterward the judge took a bowl of beef

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
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
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.

The Bock Creek Park commission is ap

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

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
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

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
