Boston, Not-.1 4, A vigorous, but un availing effort'nvas inaae in the United States ulsirict court before Judge Nelson today,, to have quashed the Indictment against Rev. Frank lljatt bmltli, pastor ol Hie North Avenue Coi.jregalionalCliurcb, Cambridge. Mr. Smith was present and lis tened attentively, to the arguments of his counsel. Col. Hopkins, of Worcester, as did the large nuniucr of Irlends and sup jwrters of the accused preacher. Not the least interested In the proceedings, how ever, were the men who were opposing him in the church, and are accused by his menus or neing in a conspiracy agamst him. Many women were present, and it was probably oul of consideration lor their feelings that certain of the postal cards quoted in the indictment as having been sent by Mr. Smith to members of his con gregation and others, were not read, but lucre!) referred to by counsel In making bis argument on the demurrer. Counsel fot defendant proposed to file a general demurrer to the indictment, which the court overruled, after which the defendant pleaded "not guilty." Col. Hopkins then usked for a continuance which was opposed b) the district attorney, and the court reserved bis decision until to morrow. The indictment Includes the names of persons to whom the cards were addressed and the alleged libellous ipithets. Some of the letters arc blasphemous and unfit for publication, but tin majority are so senseless and incoherent as to appear to be the ravings of a maniac. One gentle man, not a member of Mr. Smith's church, and in no way interested in its dissensions, is called a "Judas who betrayed bis leader." "I'll Ehoot you on sight" is the threat with which It concludes. Other cp'thcts used In the cards, aro "low bred quarrel breeder,""church wreck er," "peace disturber." "hypocrite deacon," 'religious fake,' "pious fraud." "mounte bank," "whining liar," "dissembling Iago," "vote buyer." "veneered deacon," "peanut politician," "prudential thief," "rtpalrfund emliezzlirr," "fire and smoke," "St. John fool," "cringing hypocrite." and "lying toad)." The epithets In most cases are not con nected by other words, are underscored, bristle with exclamation marks and dashes and nre accompanied by such exclamations as "Ha, ha."

I will make up my mind fully on my arrival in New York. There Is nothing in the business any more and in nearly all of tho States it Is a felony, and I do not want to be classed as a common criminal.

EIGHT Oil THE EV OFTHE FIGHT Estimates from Several States About the Elections. CLAIMS OF BOTH PARTIES Probable That Maryland Will Get a Kepiihllcnn Governor Democrats Suru of Sew York City , but Silent as to tlu Statu Talk In Ohio, Kentucky aiid Sow Jersey. Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 4. The electors of Ohio will to morrow choose a Governor, treasurer, auditor, Judge, and clerk of tho supreme court, lieutenant governor, attorney general, member of the State board uf public works, and a full general assembly. The election of the latter Is of special Importance, as It will elect a successor to Senator Calvin S. Brlce. The campaign has been a hot one and fojght with unusual vigor-un both sides. The Republican State committee states that 8G0 speeches were made under its direction, and fully that many wenj made on the Democratic side. Ex-Go v. Campbell himself made 55 speei hes. PARTY RECRIMINATION. On the Democratic side State Issues have been adhered to, and the Republicans have been vigorously assailed on the ground of corruption In the Legislature and ex travagance In Gov. MtKlnlej's adminis tration. Besides defending themselves from these charges, the Republicans bavo at tacked the Democrats upon national grounds, claiming that the question of the return of Senator Brlce raises a national issue. Gov. McKlnley has freely embraced this opportunity to urge In his speeches the necessity of Increasing the tarirf rates. In 16U2 the Republicans carried the State by 1,072. In 1893 Gov. McKlnley's plural ity was 80,905. Last year the Republicans plurality rose to the unprecedented!)- high figure of 137,(569. This, however, was ELECTION ON A MAMMOTH SCREEN Western Union Postal Telegraph United Press All have instru ments ready for taking Bulletins at The Times Office. Everybody u .r upon a total vote of 770,819. In 1892 the total vote was 601,025. A full vote is ex pected to-morrow and probably 830,000 ballots will be cast. CLAIMS OF BOTH SIDES. The Republicans concede that their plural ity will drop back this year to the normal figure from 15,000 to30,000. TbeDcmo crats claim that It will be wiped oat, and that ex-Oov. Campbell will be elected by 10,000. Thecommltteechairmenwillmake no estimates, however. The Democrats base their hope of success upon opposition within his own party to ex-Gov. Forakcr, whose faction secured control of the convention at Zanesville, and dictated the nomination of Gen. Bush nell. They expect that the same element of the Republican party that accomplished the defeat of Gov. Foraker six years ago, will vote against his faction now. This hope Is strengthened by the fact that the Democrats of Cincinnati seem to be harmonious and enthusiastic, and tliat there is geueral'apathy In the Western re- j serve, the Uibraitar or the Republicans. Both parties aro claiming the legisla. ture. There seems to be little ground upon which to base an Intelligent pre diction as to tills. "HOW IT LOOKS IX KENTUCKY. .Louisville, Ky., Nov. 4. Harrodsburg, the home town of Gen. P. Wat Hardin, gave him an ovation to-day. The proces sion was swelled by enthusiastic citizens of all counties adjoining Mercer, who came here to listen to Gen. Hardin's closing campaign speech this afternoon. At Har din's headquarters all is serene, and the utmost confidence prevails that Kentucky will roll up a handsome majority for the entire Democratic ticket On the other hand, prominent Republi cans claim that Bradley will carry the State by 5,000 to 10,000. The Prohibi tion and Populist State tickets will cut no material figure in Uie contest. The presents Governor, John Young Brown, carried the State by over 28,000 and the present canvass has been so thoroughly and vigorously prosecuted that It is agreed by, all parties that the largest vote ever polled In the State will be given to-mor-ow. .ARYLAND, MY MARYLAND. Baltimore, Md., Nov. 4. The hottest campaign In the history of Maryland poli tics closed to-night, when the party man agers shut up their respettlveheadquartcrs, preparatory to the battle of ballots on the morrow. A Governor, comptroller, and State's attorney, house of delegates, and fourteen senators will be selected. In Baltimore city a full municipal ticket will be chosen. There are four tickets in the field, but it is conceded that the fight will be between the Democrat and Republican candidates. Many leading Democrats of the State have endorsed the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Lloyd Lowndes, of Alle gany county, and have stumped the State In opposition to Millionaire Merchant John E. Hurst, of Baltimore, who, they claim, was foisted upon the Democratic conven tion by Senator Gorman. "Down with nosslsm," has been theslogan throughout the canvass, and the nntl Gor-mau-Rasln Democrats have worked hard for the overthrow of the "ring. It Is claimed that the Cleveland Democracy of city and State will vote for Lowndes to a man, and many of them will cast the entire Republican ticket. The legislature that la chosen to-morrow will select the successor to United Btates Senator Gibson, and thir teen of the senators will participate In the election of a successor to Senator Gorman two years hence.

Baldwin says: "Vcnl, vidi, vicl, nnd to-night I am as happy as any man In Wjsumgtou. I left home on Thursday wltfi part or my force, and on Friday night sent one of my bcrt men to Rosljn to Heath's. Ho made me a diagram or the house, showing each room and every table in them. Just before dark I went to Carlln Spriugs to see Major King, and found he bad gone to Ohio, so the only thing I could do was to huut up another Justice. I scat my men, seven In number, to Heath's, one or two at a time. I found Justice Birch and made him sign the warrants- Had a horse and buggy ready and I drove us fast, as I could to George town, caught Heath's boat at 9:30 and ar rived at Heath's at 9:45. HOW IT WAS PLANNED. "My men had been Instructed to be at certain points of the oulldii.g, and wl.cn I cried out 'keiio' as a signal, to hold up the crowd. I gave the signal at 10 p. in., and we caught about three hundred. We picked oul the principal men and held forty of them. I could not get a stage until after 12 o'clock. We started with twenty-three, all we could hold. Our stage broke down and I turned all loose but ten. I left four of my men at Heath's to take charge of the ttufr. We put the ten men in Jail at Alexandria about 3:30 this morning. "We returned to Heath's place this mornli.g and destroyed 53,000 worth of tables, checks, etc Thepapers gave Palmer the credit, but The Times and Post sent reporters to sec me, and I gave them the facts. We got $155 In cash. "As we were leaving Heath's last night three men .hot nt os several times. Oi.e of my men nnd myself returned the fire and ran them Into Ibcbrusli. We hit one of the men and he fejj. ' Wo then ran after the other two, and in the darkness could not find the one we hit.

O'FEURALL IS FLEASED. It appears now that none knew of the expected raid except Judge Chichester, of Alexandria county, nnd Commonwealth's AttorneyMarbury.ofAlexandriacity.vvhoni the governor summoned to Richmond last week for a conference.

Hill's iloads. West Superior, Wis.. Nov. 4. From tho outlook in this city among the members of the A. R. U. the prospects of a strike on the Eastern Minnesota road, which Is the Lake Superior outlet of the Great Northern, Is very good. The uufon held a meeting yesterday afternoon at which speeches were mado showing the sentiment of the men ill favor of standing by the conference com mittce, which was refused an audience with President Hill, and to stand by tho A. R. U. In any trouble which may arise. The Great Northern has moro employes nt Superior than at any other point on the road except Sltnneapolis and St. Paul. A strike would tie up all the ele vator systems here and probably all the flour mills. CHEAT BRITAIN GIVES WAY, Acknovv bilges Brazil's Title to the Island of Trinidad. (Special to The Times.)

TREASURY RELIEF. As for remedial currency legislation, very few well Informed men In public life expect iu serr n euaciea oy tne-Firty-fourtli Con- l COlll lmnartillilv thmri-nprnl ntlln..n ,!. situation In a- brodd way. and. as will oe seen, the play along thellnes suggested will give ample freedom for the maneuvering or the "black flag" souadrons. The lobby gangs in and out of Congress are licking their chops in anticipation of the reast next winter. Several "jobs", with "big money" in them are being pro jected, acd an infinite variety of smaller nnd less ambitious schemes are In the In cubator. Some of the big "shakedowns'" will be for the promotion of legislation, and others for the obstruction of legliation. There is no politics in jobbery any mors than there is in commerce of the more le gitimate sort, and It may be said, also that there is neither religion nor senti ment in It. Probably the biggest thing in a money sense that will be before Congress for private benefit will be the "readjust ment" of the Union and Central Paclflo debts. Theso two corporations now owe the Government 5142,000,000, less $1 -000,000. which Is to the credit of the sinking fund, or $131,000,000 net. A small part of this colossal Indebted ness has matured and the rest will be come due stragglingly during the next three or four years. It was the original sinister purpose of the holders of the first mortgage bonds of these roads, who. by the way, are also holders of the majority or the capital stock, to "freeze out" the Government by seizing the properties under foreclosure, leaving Uncle Sam out the entire amount Invested, which Investment is represented by second mortgage and interest paid out as ln dorser. Indeed, this precious game has not yet been entirely abandoned, and foreclosure suits are now pending In one or moro States In pursuance of the plan, but the conspirators are not entirely satis fied Uiat they can get away with Ufa steal, and so they have determined to make a great play next winter for a cash "scale" settlement, with the alternative of an extension of their obligations for fifty or. a hundred years at two per cent, or a still lower rate. TLANS COMPLETED. A plan of legislative action has been fully matured during the past season in New York and Boston. The plotting has been carried on with the utmost secrecy and very few outside or those directly interested have any Idea of the magultud of the campaign mapped out. It is whispered that the big moneyed Interests concerned are prepared to give up $2,000,000 to carry their deal through, and that they have every assurance of success, having laid their wires with con summate adroitness and gained assur ances of rriendly co-operation In most influential quarters. A fundlrg bill would have gone through. Cougress last winter but for the fact that the Union Pacific and Central Pacific were at loggerheads and could not agree upon a plan. After the failure of the Reilly bill tho Huntington crowd charged the Union Pa cific people with having betrayed them. The accusation was well founded. Th Continued on Fourth Page.
