THE SILVER STATE.
Tasaday.. ....October M, ism. THE ELECTORAL VOTES. Figuring on the Electoral votes ef the several States is now in order. The total number of Electoral votes is 369, •f which 185 are necessary to elect a President. The politicians accord Han cock 138 votes, and Garfield 89 undis puted. This leaves 142 Electoral votes doubtful. These votes are apportioned M follows: CWi!omia.«,Colorado.. 3 Connecticut.6, Illinois.21 Indiana.15. New York.35 New Jersey.. 9,Nevada. 3 New Hampshire. 6. Maine. 7 Oregon. 3; Pennsylvania.29 If Hancock gets the 138 votes con ceded to him be will require but 47 more to give him a majority. It is claimed that be will get the Electoral votes of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, beyond all douhb. Of course if be does that will give him three more votes than is required to. elect him. Should he lose New York and carry Connecticut, New Jersey, California and Pennsylvania he would atilt have two more than a majority. But it is probable that Hancock will get the 35 Electoral votes of New York; 9 from New Jersey;. 6 from Connecti cut; 4 from Maine, where the Demo crats and Fusionists have combined, with the understanding that Hancock w to have 4 of the 7 Electoral votes; 3 from Nevada, which is to-day almost certain to give him a majority; 6 from California; 3 from Oregon, 27 from hi3 native State, Pennsylvania, and 15 from Indiana. It is claimed too that Col orado, Illinois and New Hampshire are likely to go Democratic, but however that may be, those people who do not let their prejudices overcome their reason, must admit that Hancock has yet a decided advantage iu the contest j unless Florida and Virginia may go Re publican, and even then he ought to have an equal show w ith Garfield. That the Republicans ara by no means san guine of carrying enough Northern States to elect their candidate is appa rent from their attempt to colonize Florida, where Marshall Jewell has been caught in the act, and is vainly attempting to make it appear that the I tbreo or four hundred men, recently scut to that State, were Democrats. This colonization scheme to secure the Electoral vote of' Florida for Garfield, shows the hypocrisy of his partisans in tho present, campaign. While publicly endeavoring to create the impression in the North that every Southern Stata is certain to vote for Hancock, they are secretly sending hundreds of men to Florida to carry the State for Garfield. A week from to-day will however aett’.o the question definitely, as the man who is elected this time will ha Boated, what her ha be Hancock or Gar field. The- people w ill stand no more cooked returns, or Returning Board couuts, made to order, but will insist on having the man whom they elect, whether he be Republican or Democrat,, inaugurated as provided by the Cou-j •titution. A YANKEE OPINION.. Of the eight States, which have held •lections this Fall the Democrats have carried five and the Republicans three. The Republican* got a set-back in Maine and the Democrats in Indiana. Those were preliminary skirmishes; thai m&iu battle is to- be fought in Novem ber. “Who can doubt,” exclaims the Hartford (Conn.) Times, “that the Union forces under the gallant Han cock will drive hack the sectional army under Garfield, as Lougstreet was driven back at Gettysburg?” Rev. H. G. James, of Chicago, re cently visited some friends at Marshall, Michigan, and preached on a Sunday morning in. the Presbyterian Church by iuvitatioaof the pastor, who announced that lie would speak again in the even ing,' After the services he spent two Lour* in a beer saloon, where he drank more than he could carry away with •readiness. Seme of the church officers •aw him iu this condition, and informed him that he would not be allowed to enter the church; so he spent the even mg in a carousal with the roisterers of the town. M« Emil de Girardin recommends joung Frenchmen to let Greek and J.stiu alone, and to fttudy English and Spanish, because they are the languages •ft* the future.. TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. An Inter-Ocean New Yeek special nays: The Roman Catholic religion has, for the first time in many years, at last has become an issue in the politics of New York City. William R. Grace, the Democratic candidate for Mayor, is a Roman Catholic, the intimate friend of John Kelly and. of Cardinal Me Closkey, and Protestants seem to have taken the alarm at the possible danger to- the common-school system. The $4,000,000 which are annually spent on the New York common-schools are dis bursed by the Board of Estimate and Apportionment, consisting of the Major and the Controller. A number of earnest sermons were preached npon the sib ject to-day. Rev. Dr. Newman snd other clergymen took this topic, »nd the tenor of their addresses seemed to show the profound agitation of the pub lic mind. Of course it would take a large change in the vote to overcoma the difference between the Democratic ami the Republican votes. But there is.no telling what change a week's agi tation on this subject may bring. Grace, ia his letter of acceptance, tries to calm it down by pledging himself in favor of keeping the comm on schools inviolate.. At Stockton, California, James Court urier was wounded in the head by a pistol ball fired by Robert Bond, a youth of his own age. The latter sup posed the weapon, a small seven-shoot er, contained blank cartridges, and when only two feet away fired at Ccurturier. The ball 3tiuck the bridge of the nose, and glancing off entered the right eye, entirely destroying the sight. The wound was probed but the ball was not extracted. The boys were on the best of terms vha the tiring was done. The wound is not necessa rily fatal. Dispatches from Tennessee anti Ken tucky are full of hope to the Repub licans. In Tennessee two Tilden Elect ors have come out for Garfield, and there is a large Democratic desertion among the people. Bankings.'Repub lican, is more thaa likely to he elected Governor. In Kentucky two Repub lican Congressmen will probably bo re turned. The Republican National Committee is earnestly recommended to turn its attention to Tennessee. This does not indicate a very solid South. A Washington dispatch, says: Much excitement is being caused in political circles by the exposure of the Repub lican colonization scheme in Florida. Jewell’s telegrams are published, which show conclusively that oOO repeaters have already beeu shipped to Florida. Train loads of negroes from the West and South are also pouring into Con necticut daily. The Chicago Times says: The tame ness of the arguments of the average white stumper in comparison with the appeals of negro campaigners is vividly shown by tliis extraet frem the speaci* of a colored Republican preacher in In dianapolis: “If any of you go back on the ticket next month, I’m afraid I •hall miss you on the right baud of the \great white throne.” William R. Grace has accepted thu Democratic nomination for Mayor of New York City. He says: “ I believe that the common »chool8, established by the people and esteemed by them their richest inheritance-, should be maintained inviolate, and I shall favor liberal appropriations for their support.” Dispatches from various parts of On tario. northeast and northwest of To ronto, report very rough weather, with anow last night ami this morning, doing great damage to fruit and other trees. The snowfall varies from five to twenty inches. Rumor again ha* it that Tilden is pre paring some powerful document! in sup port of Hancock, and will present the Democratic National Committoe with a check for JlOO.OOOi The Manchester (Eugland) postofiice was burned yesterday. The fire ia-sup posed to have been the work of an in cendiar/. The California .Stock Exchange, bet ter known as the “Little Board," has suspended business, owing to the de pression in the stock business.. The distribution of standard silver dollars for the week ending to-day amounted to $818,9iK). Several cases of small-pox are report ed at Stockton, California. A Times Boston-Providence special says that ex-Governor Sprague, in at tempting to find the whereabout* of hia wifs, discovered, that sh* had recently been campaigning fthroigh New York with Senator Coukling, traveling in a special aae, and registering at the same hotels patronised by thi Senater. The census makes it tolerably clear that the Utah problem will soon demand settlement. The Territory has in creased in population newly seventy per cent. in. the last ten years. It how has a population of 145,000, which i» far greater than th» number required of other Territories before admittance as States. Yet the obstacle of polygamy is still in the way of Utah. The New York papers are now tell ing the dear people how Indiana was carried. They say one express com pany took from that city to Indiana the week before the election came off, the handsome sum. oi $850,000 for the Republicans, and yet they only carried the State by a plurality. A telegram from.Melbourne announc ing the opening of the International Exhibition in that city, was received in London within twenty-three minutes after the ceremony had taken place.
