mittee that for a year past the Socialists
have been moving into the district.
He said that they are endeavoring to

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
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."

Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 4. James Corbelt
and Ills party arrived at Memphis this morn
ing. Corbett will give an exhibition here
to-night and go hence to New York.
"I will pay no more attention to Fltz
slmmons," snid Corbett, "I feel convinced
now that he never intended to meet me. I
would have fought lilm for nothing."
In proof of what be stated relative to
Fltzsimmous not wanting tov fight, Corbett
exhibited a copy of a letter from Superin
tendent Rose, of the Iron Mountain Rail
road, to the general passenger agent, H. C.
Townsend, in which Mr. Rose states that
he could have gotten Fitzsimmons through
to Hot Springs without trouble, but for
Fitz himself. Fitzsimmons acted ns if he
did not want to fight," . was a sentence In
the letter.
Corbett 6ald further: "I am thinking
seriously of quilting the ring. 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. Still, I believe that
non-interference with prize fighting would
make men trust to nature's weapons and
would eventually do away with shooting
and cutting."

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
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.
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

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.
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.

upon which to base an Intelligent pre

gruntled Over Things.
Special to The Times.)
Richmond, Va., Nov. 4. Gov. O'Fer
rall to-day received a detailed statement
rrom Detective W. G. Baldwin, giving an
account of the manner in which he raided
Heath's gambling establishment in RosI)u.
Iu his letter Air. 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.
"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.
"I think this work has given gambling
a black eye, and It will be a long time
before there is any more of It at Rislyn.
"I will not be able to leave here before
Tuesday, as Mr; MarLury wantsus ut Alex
andria to-morrow."

"All of this Is new, and I had it valued by
several parties who know the value," adds
Mr. Baldwin "We cut up nil the tables
and only took part of the top for evidence."
It appears now that none knew of the
expected raid except Judge Chichester, of
Alexandria county, nnd Commonwealth's

week for a conference.
The work of Baldwlu and his men was so
effective that the backbone of the lawless

for their appearance when wanted.

himself as being badly slighted by the

Thirteen of Thlrtytiue Stolen Ones
Found in u Wagon.
London, Nov. 4. The police of Mile End
this evcuing seized a van laden with
carpets and cushions, among which were
thirteen complete ingots of silver and
parts of two others, being a portion
of the thirty-one Ingots, valued at 4,900,
the property of the Midland Railway
Company, that were stolen from a van
In OssuUton street, St. Pancras, on Septem
ber 25th last.
The occupants of the van seized to-day,
two men named Barrett and Gray, were
arrested. The latter is apparently of good
social position.
The driver of the van was allowed to
escape. It is presumed that he was In
league with the police In their efforts
to recover the silver. Only seven of the
Ingots are now missing.
Slay Come On One of J. SI. Hill's
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.

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.
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.

Huntington crowd charged the Union Pa
