Ill J the Thine l!l> Klght. A stranger arriving in me city yes? terday, not having been previously in formed or political conditions, would hardly have guessed that Newport News was in the midst or an election. : In fact, it was so absolutely quiet and 1 eventless, that the judges themselves 1 almost had to rub their eyes occasion- ' ally in order to realize that there was anything unusual going on. and that the people were really voting. It was a beautiful day. There was nothing on earth the matter with the weather. It was an ideal election day. and ordinarily a large vote would have been polled, but conditions, already re? ferred to often, prevailed against such a result. There was a general listless ness. and the clamor that could not be heard in the highways and byways or the city would have populated eter? nity with sound, and would have given the twinkling stars a headache. Around the polls there was some ev idence of lite and movement. The booth Maps wobbled softly in the monotonous and con? sumptive breeze, and occasionally s ime one voted?voted quietly, unosten? tatiously, peacefully?and went his way. They voted and went their way. and others came, but were not in a hurry about coming. They did not come as they came two years ago. The vote was incorporated, as the election was the quietest. It was mil only tin. smallest so far as the total result was concerned, but it was the smallest, tak? ing it by individual wards. When all the ballots were counted, they footeil up a total for the six wards of the city, amounting to 1.0SS. out of a total registered vote of nearly II.700. Of this total Hon. W. A. Young, the Dem? ocratic candidate for Congress, got ?l'G; Dr. It. A. Wise, one of the Republican candidates, received 242. ami W. S. Hol? land, the other Republican candidate, received 106. There were S4 defaced ballots that were thrown out. Young's plurality was 37.4. He beat Holland by 430 votes. His majority over them both was 108. Following is a tabulated state ment of the vote of the city: NEWPORT NEWS. r -' WARD. 24 I 11 Sixth .. ..( 97 1 34 j 30 j 13 I 170 Seventh .! 64 j 24 I 12 : _ 1? | 110 Young's plurality. 354.

The registra? tion two years ago was only 2,739, at | that. There was absolutely no incident any moment in any ward in the cii The police had an easy time and then were no specials on. Speclais were not | needed. For the purposes of coini son, the total vote by wards two years ago. Is given: First. 208: Second, Third, 181; Fourth. 367; Fifth, 361; Sixth, 265; Seventh, 137. The Daily Press, following its usua custom, bulletined the returns as the came in for the benefit of its patrons | and the public generally. These bulle? tins could not be given on quite as elab? orate a scale as formerly, because the upper lloor the Daily Press building, being occupied, was not available. The service was. however, ample and satis? factory, as many will testify. The peo pie appreciated the enterprise, ami thei expressions of apptoval were hi and unanimous. The crowd which j gathered in front of the bulletin board was for most part a Democratic crowd, and made the night ring wiih cheers for Hon. W. A. Young and all things Demo? cratic.

The Business Men's Association met in regular sessino in their room at the Braxton Building last night. President W. B. Vest called the body to order and the following gentlemen responded to the roll call: Messrs. M. J. Moore. Geo. B. West. A. B. Witmink, J B. Marye, Jr.. W. S. How en. E Peyser. D. G. Smith. T. B. Henley, E. W. Huffman, A. I.. Powell and W. Scott Boyenton. After the reading and approval of the minutes of the previous meeting, a report was asked for from the commit? tee, which was appointed to investigate the action of the City Council in the mater of awarding the jail contract. Mr. Moore.the only member of the com? mittee present, stated that' the com? mittee had been unable to secure the plans adopted by the Council for the new Jail ami was, therefore, in no po? sition to make a report. He thought j Mr. Smith had taken the plans away with him. *Mr, Henley moved that the commit? tee be continued. Mr. West and Mr. Moore could not see that the commit? tee could accomplish anything and thought it might as well be discharged. Mr. Huffman thought that as the As? sociation hail eritcised the members of the Council for their action In this matter it should be probed to the bot? tom and the responsibility placed where it belongs. The people, lv said, ex? pected the Association to hold the Council in cheek, as it were, and this matter should be thoroughly examined. II" it be found that the Council has act? ed wisely its members should lie exon? erated, but if they have acted unwisely they should be condemned. Mr. Hen? ley's motion to omtinu? the commit? tee prevailed. Mr. Henley, chairman of the commit? tee t.j loik into the advisability of tak? ing steps to secure the adoption of Newport News as a permanent camp, reported that he had communicated with thirteen gentlemen interested In mili? tary affairs and. in each instance in which he received a reply. Newport News was spoken of in the highest terms as a camping ground. special mention being made of the healthy cli? mate and high ground to be found here. On motion of Mr. -Peyser, the report was adopted and the committee discharged. A vote of thanks of the body was tendered to the committee for its etlicient services. A motion, made by Mr. Robert P. Orr some time ago, to change the time of meeting, was brought up. The con? sideration of the motion was deferred. rPofessor Huffman suggested that something lie done to arouse interest In the Association on the part of the members. He thought it was necessary to the welfare of the Association to have the members attend its meetings, and he suggested that a good, live membership committee he appointed to sec the present members and inter? est them, as well as the new business men coming into the city, in the work of the Association. Mr. Peyser thought that the large amount of "dead wood" that the As? sociation was carrying in its member? ship did much to hinder its work and growth, and the sooner it was gotten' rid of the better it would be for the organization. The president appointed the following membership committee: Messrs. A. L. Powell, chairman: W. Scott Boyenton. .1. A. Hirshberg and T. B. Henley. The secretary was instructed to con? fer with the proper committee of the Council and request that the Associa? tion's committee be allowed to examine the plans for the new jail. Mr. Smth called attention to the condition of the Clerk's office, and a motion was carried requesting the Council to consider the matter of erect? ing a vault for the protection of the I.ks and papers in the office. After talking over a number of ques? tions of public interest, the Associa? tion, at 11:30 o'clock, on motion of Mr. West, adjourned. FATAL ELECTION RIOT. While Man IKUed: Several Negroes Fatally Wounded. (By Telegraph.) CHARLESTON, S. C. Nov. S. ? A special to the News and Courier from Greenwood, S. C. says: "In today's election the people of this section have had a forceful reminder of the days of 'T6-'S0. Although unusually quiet as to this precinct, intense excite? ment has prevailed all day because of the shooting of Mr. Boaz Ethridge, one of the managers of the election at Phoe? nix early this morning and a subsequent riot between the whiles and blacks at that place, in which one of tHe 'Colberts and several negroes were mortally wounded. "The whites are arming and much loss of blood, and probably life, is expected. "The latest authentic information is that John R. T?lbert has been danger? ously wounded and his little nephew, who was in the buggy with him, in? stantly killed, while on their way home this evening late. While a party of white nun from Greenwood were re? turning from Phoenix tonight they were fired on from ambush and M. J. Votinger, Cresswell Fleming and a Mr. Miller were badly wounded and are now at A. C. Stockman's, live miles from here. Drs. Cobb and Nein wer,- with them and are attending their wounds. It is said that when John It. Tolbert was shot he had with him a body of armed negroes, who opened fire on the white men. wounding one. It is not known here whether any of the negroes were hit or not." M'KINEEY IN CANTON. CANTON. O.. Nov. 8.?President Mc? Kinley arrived in Canton on a special train at 9:25 A. M. today. But lew peo? ple knew the hour of his coming and a small crowd was at the depot to meet him. Before 10 o'clock the President had voted and at 2:15 in the afternoon he started back to Washington. He was given a hearty cheer by the large crowd as the train pulled out. President Mc? Kinley will reach Washington tomorrow morning. "A woman can't pick out a good ci? gar."

The whole Democratic State ticket is elect? ed. The light vol.- is due to th.- feeble resistance offered. The constitutional amendment requiring that bonds of State officers be in sound surety and guarantee companies were carried over? whelmingly. The Republicans and Fop. ulists will not elect, altogether, over five members of the legislature, if that many. The legislature elected today will choose a successor to Samuel Fas CONNECTICUT.
