THE SILVER STATE.
lrldny. .July 16. I(W». A MIIEME TO ELECT VAltITKLD. Eighteen of the thirty-eight States of the Union have Republican Governors ami Legislatures. These States, which include New York, have a majority of the electoral votes. The Detroit Post, a radical Garfield organ, fearing the fate of its favorite, if the election of President is left to the people, advo cates the scheme of electing him by the Legislatures [of tiie Republican States. It advises the Governors of those States to call the Legislatures together in ex tra session for the purpose of appoint ing Presidential Electors instead of having them elected, as heretofore, by the people. Whether this advice will be acted upon remains to be seen. It is risky business, and unless it was suc cessfully carried out, it would result in overwhelming defeat to Garfield at the polls in November, its the people would resent the attempt to deprive them of the right of expressing at the ballot box their choice for President, and would wreak their vengeance on those who attempted it. To successfully carry out the scheme the majority of the members of the Legislatures in each and all of the Republican States would have to favor it. In Illinois, the Re publican majority in the State Senate is only one, so that if one Republican ■Senator should oppose the scheme it would be defeated. This would de prive Garfield of the twenty-one elec toral votes of that State, and defeat him for the Presidency, unless he car lied the election in November, which he would not be likely to do, after at tempting to deprive the people of their right to vote for or against him. It is not probable that an attempt will be made to carry this plan into effect un less a thorough canvass of the members ,of the Legislatures of the several States shows that it can be successfully con summated. The Detroit paper is, how ever, heartily in favor of it, and is of the opinion that it is the only way by which Garfield can be made President, as, the Electoral Commission business will not be tried again, and the candi date who receives a majority of the electoral votes will not he counted out next Winter. n*io> l.\ M USE. It is stated on what appears to be re liable authority that the Democrats and Greenbackers have effected a fu sion satisfactory to both parties in the State of Maine. The Lewiston Jour nal says the Democratic State Commit tee wisely decided it expedient to fuse oa all candidates, and asked Plaisted, the Democratic nominee for Governor, , to .decline, and he has agreed to do so. ■The Committee then adjourned to meet next Thursday and issue a call for a State Convention of the Fusionists. •The Greenbackers and Democrats combined have a majority in that State, but, as was the case at the election in that State last Fall, tiie Republicans elected a majority of both Houses of the; Legislature in consequence of the opposition having separate tickets in the field. The Republican nominee for Governor, not having a majority of all; the votes cast, was elected by the Legislature, as under the laws of the •ntate a plurality does not elect.. If a fusion has been effected as reported, the electoral vote of Maine is almost certain to be cast against Garfield, but whether it will be given to Hancock or to.Weaver, of course depends upon the terms on1 which the fusion is consum mated. This would complicate mat ters in the event of a close election, as the Greenbaokers might hold the bal cnct of power. At present it seems as if Weaver’s only hope of getting an electoral vote depended upon the ar rangements made in Maine, by those who are opposed to Garfield’s election, as that is the only State the Green bickers are likely to carry, though they claim Tennessee, Mississippi and In diana. Hancock, according to his first cam paign biographer, never loses his pc i ft ness even under the most trying circumstances. He is described ns ral • lying his troops for an attack in the battle of Williamsburgh with these words: “‘Now, gentlemen, use the bayonet.” TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. An explosion occurred at 1:20 yester day in the London and South Wales Colliery Company's new black-vein pit at ltisca, six miles from Newport. The shock was very violent. It is supposed that 119 men were in the pit at the time, and there is scarcely a probabil ity that any will be saved. One body has been found at the bottom of the shaft. Ventilation has been restored in the mine with a view to exploring it for bodies. A dispatch from Cardiff says that 128 men were in the pit of the London and South Wales Colliery Company’s mine at the time of the ex plosion, and it is believed that all have perished. Tank 23, belonging to the Acme Oil Company, about one-third of a mile up the. Kansas branch, McKenny county, Pa., was struck by lightning yesterday. The burning oil furiously overflowed. At 12:40, tank No. lfjl, about 200 feet down the stream, was in danger. Su perintendent Snow, w ith a gang of men, are digging a trench and damning the stream to save other tanks. Two 2b, - 000-barrel tanks near Custer City are now burning. They were also struck by lightning last night. Both belong to the United Pipe lines. About 82, 000 barrels of oil are burning. Four wells at Custer City are also on fire. At Lincoln, in Lincoln county, New Mexico, July 3d, a young man named Harrison came into town, and becom ing intoxicated was locked up at night. A mob effected an entrance to the jail and killed Harrison, riddling him with bullets. On the night of the 4th a mob again surrounded the jail and killed the Deputy Sheriff, who was im plicated in the killing the night before, and bad made himself obnoxious to the outlaws. On the night of the nth a mob again visited the jail, taking out and hanging a prisoner. It is not known what the prisoner's crime was. The New York Times says: Some of the more sanguine members of the Dem ocratic party have gone so far as to ar range that when Hancock is inaugu-1 rated, Tilden shall ride to the Capitol! with him as the outgoing President de jure. This is not a joke. It is 1 gravely proposed by Democratic papers 1 that have persistently declared that Tilden is the real President of the United States and that Hayes is but a usurper. The World’s special from Jamestown, Dakota, says: Sherman declined to be interviewed in regard to his correspon dence at any time with Hancock, bat states emphatically that he has no re collection of hearing anything from Hancock about taking orders from Til den, or. indeed, anything at all like the stories which have been printed and published about the correspondence with Hancock. The Democratic National Committee, before ad journment Tuesday, added the name of B. F. Jones, of Louisiana, to the Executive Committee, which num bers eighteen members. The matter of two Democratic electoral tickets in Vir ginia came up, and after a brief discus sion was referred to the Executive Committee. California crop reports indicate that the wheat yield will be very heavy. The damage from late heavy north winds in most cases proves to be less than was supposed, and the increased acreage will make up for any diminu tion of yield per acre where most af fected by unfavorable weather. Reports have reached Portland that the Indians about Peep Creek and Medical Lake, in Washington Territo ry, have murdered several families in that vicinity and are on the w ar path. The rumors lack confirmation and are generally unbelieved. At Wheatland, California, while two little boys, aged 7 and 10, sons of Kd ward O’Brien, were playing with a shotgun at noon yesterday, it was acci d> tally discharged, killing the young er boy instantly. The venerable Peter Cooper has suf fered from the effects of the recent heat and is temporarily confined to his room, lnit his physicians say there is no cause for uneasiness and that the philanthro pist w ill bo out again in a day or two. An incendiary attempt was made night before last to burn fir re ml house of the Sacramento and Pi..cer I villa Railroad at Folsom. A can lie A box full of waste, thoroughly saturated i with kerosene, was found in the build ing, in a blaze, by railroad men who were returning from a visit to the scene of the fire, which destroyed Chinatown in the afternoon. Simon Cameron has arrived at Sul* pher Springs, where he has been sum moned on account of the failing health of Don Cameron, whose decline alarms his friends. The worst is feared unless the disease is arrested. It is suspected that overwork may have brought on quick consumption. Senator Wallace, of Pennsylvania, sa3’s that State will give Hancock 10, 000 majority in November. Hayes carried the State in 1870 by over 17,000 majority. Henry Ward Beecher is between 00 and 70 years of age, hut he has a firm conviction that ho will live long enough to vote for Grant again for President before he dies. REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE MEETING.
