ltradtlrrrt't gives marly L ur of Its
calumns thia week to an attempt to
nnvoll the Cotton Oil Trust Company,
but it finds much in its doings that
is impenetrable. Two yeas ago the
Trufct began to acquire (he control of
the oilmilis by methods leeembliug
tin so n sot tod to by the notorious
Standard Oil Company. A patent pro
cess for stripping the sued if lint Rave
the b-sis .for the formal ion of the
Trast, I's cwners arranged their
plans, paid heavy inducements to gain
control of the mills of highest stand
ing, and through tbom probably
seventy out of one hundred of the best
milis. The plan of the Standard Oil
Oorcpany wai adopted of continuing
the mills that hd bectme the prop
erty of the Trust under the superin
tendence of the former m imager a, thus
often hiding the change from the pub
lic. It bas issued certificates to the
amcunt of $35,0OO,CO0, while the cen
sus of 1880 showod the amount of cap
ital then in cotton oilmills to be about
4,000,000. Water is reported not to
mli with oil, but it looks as if the
"Tiu4" bad found a mnans of making
it or st least watered stock, do so.
How many mil's are In the Trust is
one of the Trust's mysteries. One im
portant fact Iiradnlrtet'i points out is
that the Trust contro's all the cotton
refineries and several of the soap
woiks that use up the inferior ol', and
of the fertilising, uianufacloties that
use the damaged oil cako. The divi
dends amount to not less than 10 per
cent., and the Trust stands well in
Wallstieet. The at)ok,20 per cenUof
par a year ego, has since toacbed 68,
stands now at 55, and is expected
soon to touch 75 per cent. Our con
temporary dots not fail to state how
the totu n growors of the South regard
the Tiuil as a bitter enemy to their
ii.tercsta, and that their remedy lies in
neing the sred ss a fertiliser, as the
addition thus made tt the cotton crop
will poy better than the pittance the
Ti net ays the farmer fur his seed.
Like a drama the Bulgarian compli
cation goes on, icbdp by scene and act
by aot. Russia bribes, threatens and
intrigncs, but the Bulgarians proceed
on tbeir wey utder the most hsraas
Ing provocations, calm and peaceful,
witb a manful determination that
baffles all the srs Russia can resort to.
On the one band is overheating, inso
lent tyranny, on the other quiet but
persevering resistance. The right on
one tide and the wrong on the other
stand out plain and clear. In the face
of the peaceful altitude of the Bulga
rian people, they are nnblushingly
charged with ill treating Russians, and
are spoken of as If they were in con
tinual tumaJk Tbj juler of the
country waa captured and carried
out of it; "the people' called for
juaticS upon" tha.. psrpstraloti of
the cowardly ,dt4t! the R11M'n repif

Now Russia is trying to suppress the
Bobrsnjs, the Bulgarian Parliament,
and. the iafamoua tool Kanlbars threat
ens that gunboats Ru-aU has sent to
Varpa, "wijl vigorously affirm their
inipoiticcs if necer-saryt" The people
desire to appeal to the Ciu, but be
refaeee iy ' heir representativee.
The PobrarijS la about to meet, and
Its rroceedinti are sure fo lead to
fresh complleat'ons. Russia, how
ever, delays putting-tioops into the
country to overawe the people, ior to
do so wculd be an invasion and an oc

JadBsiN, Miss., November 2. The
political campaign in this State was
remarkably quiet, there being no oppo
sition to the Democratic candidates
for Oorgreas, except in the Second and
Third Districts. In the former Gen.

weeks ego against Mr. Morgan, and
Sena'or Walthall made an active can

trict Judge Kiward Simrall, Rep., is
opposing T. O. Catching, Dera. In
this, the Shoestring District, the blsck
vole overwhelmingly exceeds the
white, but the Democrats are very
active. The United States Supervisor
gsve notice tome tjins axo to his
subordinates that any form of ballot
could be used in voting for Congress

vides that a certain form shall be" used
in all electiens. TLis, of course, will
have no efloct, except in tbe Second

The election passed off quietly. It was
the llghttsl vr.te ever cast in this coun

In 1884 the vots wes 020. From all

The Ronton county vote was less than

for Morgan.
Hknatobia, Miss., November 2.
Henatohia gives J. B. Morgan a major

of 61 over the vote of 1884. A solid
white and many negroes voted for
Morgan. Cold water girts Morgan a

Theresohof the election at the two
Hernando boxes has just been official
ly announced. The vots stands as
follows: J. B. Morsan 176. James R.
Chalmers 64. Morgan's majority is
140, and a considerable increase for
Morgan over bis majority la 1884. We
learn that on account of the farmers
being very buoy and because tbe ne
groes have failed to participate tbe
vote polled in thia county will bs
light, but that Morgan's majority will
be comparatively much greater tban
in 1884. Hbouta of victory are now
ascending in honor of the great Mor
gan, while not even a tear ol pity falls
lor the slaughtered Catallne.

votes ever known in Arkansas since
thedsysof recons'ruction. Contrjry
to g T.eral hi lief before tbe election,
the ReDuhlicans abitained f om
voting almost exclusively in all the
counties, while the Wheelers as a
political nrgauizition generally voted
for tbe Demooratic nominees. Tbe
assurance "that all was light engir
dured great apathy among the Demo
crate, and it is said that, unless told, a
person would pars tbe p dliug places
in every county, aot knowing sa elec
tion was going or, . The estimate
made tome time ago that Ar
kansas - would retnrn her
five Congressmen to Wahington

The election in Alabama is only for

New York, November 2. The elec
tion in New Y'ork tc-day is for a Judge
of the uourt of Appeals, lor members
of tbe Legislature, and for thirty-four
(Jongressnien. J be nominees lor tbe
jiulgthip are Jndgn Charles Daniels of
Buffalo, Rep., Rufns W. Peck bam of
Albany, Dem, and William J. Grno,
Probib. The contest is between the
two tt rat named, almost nothing having
been beard ol tbe rrobibiilomet can
dida'e. Tbeiehas been little camra'gn
work done for either Daniels or Peck-
bam. Bath sre recognized as rmi
rently worthy of the position, but it
is believed that Judge Daniels, who
has long been prominent on the
Supreme Court bench, will attract
many Democratic totes. The
World has practically supported
him, mainly because it coneidets
Peck ham sn anti-Hill nomination.
The vote for Judge will ba compared
with the GubematoralfcVote of last
year. The Stati will vote a'to noon
tho qu'stion whether a convention
f ir revising the conr-t tution shall be
held. A majority of all the votes cast
at the laet election is required for an
affirmative decision. It is believed
that this will be obtained, as both par
tits favor a convention. Much more
ititertst centers in tbe election of the
123 members of the Assembly, as the
next Legislature will elect a successor
to United States Senator Warner
Miller. Both parties are making spe
cial effort to carry tbe day. Tbe Re
publicans have a decided advantage.
Tbe Senate of 32 members, wbich
holds over, has a Republican majority
of 8. The Democrats, therefore, mnat
elect 09 Assemblymen to control the
United State t Sen at or ship ; the Repub
licans need only 61. Tbe last Legis
lature consisted of 78 Republicans and
50 Democrats. Senator Miller, who
desires re-election, baa taken sn aotve
part In the Assembly campaign. In the
Uongresiional elections, it is believed
that the patties will about bold their
own, though the result in several dis
tricts is considered doubtful. Eich
party now bas seventeen Representa
tives. Worthy of note is the nomina
tion by the Democrats of Wm. Bonrke
Oockraa ia the Twelfth District and
of Gen. B. F. Spino'a in the Tenth.
Both men are uncompromising in their
hostility to civil service reform and to
President Cleveland. In tbe E ghth
District T. F. Grady, who bitteriy op
posed Cleveland at the Chicago Con
vention and afterward espoused the
Butler came, is running as an Inde
pendent Democrat against Tim Camp
bell, who has the regular Democratic
nomination and has been indotsed by
the Republicans. S. 8. Cox will be
elected in the Ninth District. In the
Thirtieth District (Rochester) tbe
Democrats have nominated Theodore
F. Baron, who waa a Republican until
1884 It is claimed that there will be
a close contest between him and C. 8.
Baker, present Republican member.
The Prohibitionists bave made nomi
nations in nearly ewery Congressional
District, but is not believed any man
on tbeir ticket will be elected. In
New York City the interest in the
Mayoralty contest overshadows all
others. Tbe registration la larger than
ever before In an off year, being
witbin 6000 of that of 1884. Tbe labor
organisiiiooa were first in tbe field,
and nominated Henry George.the well
known writer and lecturer on social
and economical problems. His nomi
nation was indorsed by the Irving
Hall Democrats and many social re
formers, preachers and enthueiaste
fl.cked to his standard. Tber were
joined by all tbe socialists, commun
ists and anarcbists in the city, who
bailed George's candidacy aa a great
step forward in tbe leveling propa
ganda. The George movement
seemed to be making great headway
wuHii iu iub surprise oi ins enure
community the Tammany Democrats
nominated the Hon. A. S. Hewitt,
wbo has represented the lentb Dis
trict In Congress for many ye ars. This
notciualion was seconded bv tbe
county Democracy and an sggreesive
campaign wsg ai ores initugutaieel.
Finally the Republicans made their
nomination, their choice falling upon
Theodore R tneevolt, a wea thy young
lnau who (littiiiBuinlinl bimself in his
three yera' rorvice iu the Stale Legis

The Prohibitionists, with a complete
ticket in tbe tide!, have made an active
canvass, and the balief on the part of
the Democrats that tbe grcato num
ber of rotors for tha Prohib
tion ticket will be drawn from (he Re
publican party las made them hope
ful that the number of voters thus
drawn from Ih regular Republican
ticket will be sufficiently great to g ve
Black, the Democratic candidate for
Governor, a plurality over Beaver.
Through diirei s'ons fu the Republi

party elected Pattison Governor, the
total vote being: Pattisin (Dsmocra')
355,791, Beaver (Republican) 315,589,
Hi wart (Independent Republican)
43,743. The Stat-, however, in 1884,
give Blaine a plurality over Cleveland
of 8LU9, and in 1885 elected Q ;ay
(Repub ican)S ate Treasurer by a plu
rality of 43,610. The comparisons iu
tbe returns for Governor will be made
with ihe'Vote f ir Governor in 1882.
The present Cergrpssional delega'ion
is composed rf 8 Democrats and 20
Republicans, including Brumm, Re
publican Greenb'.cker.
Philadelphia, Pa., November 2.
The figures on the State ticket come
in slowly, bat show an invariable plu
rality for Beaver, Rep., for Goven or.
His plurality in this city will not fall
below 25,000. Tie other candidates
on the State ticket are well up with

Omaha, Nib., November 2. The
weather today was clesr and warm,
bot nererthelees a comparatively light
vote waa cast throughout the State.
This waa particularly the case In
Omaha, where not over 9000 roles
were polled. Tbe Republican Slate
ticket, headed by Gen. John M. Thay
er, bas been elected by over 25,000
majority. Jas. Laird, ths pressnt
member of Congress from' tbe Second
Distiict, and G. W. E. Dorsey, Con-
&refsman from the Tbird District,
oth Republicans, hare been re-elected.
Their majorities hare not been
ascertained. In this district, tbe
First, the result on Congressman ia
still In doubt. John A. Mc8bsne,
Dem., receives, accoiding to the best
estimates at this hour, a msjority of
between 3JC0 and 3500 in this, Doug
lass county. In Lincastsr county,
bowsrer, Church Howe, Rep., made
a strorg run. No definite reports
bars ret been received from other
counties of this district. Tbe race be
tween Howe and McSbane is eo doss
that it will be several days before tbe
result can be denailely known. This
district is usually Republican by
about 2500 majority. Tbe people gen
erally throughout ths State voted tbeir
preference for Uul'ed States Senator,
wbich wss for VanWyck, there being
no opposing candidate. At this hour
tbe indications are that the Legislatire
delegation from this county ate Van
Wyck men, and it ia beilieved that
VanWyck has a msjority of tbe
members of the Legislature through
out tbe State.

Charleston, S. O, November 2.
Politicians are hard at work. The
elections today promise ti bs quiet
throughout tbe State. There ia no
opposiiion to the regular Democratic
candidates except in the Seventh Con-g-csiional
Dis rict acd in Berkley
Reportt frrm ail pjrts of the SUte
show a quiet election and a very light
vet. There is no opposition to the
Democatic SUte ticket or to the Dem
ocratic candidates for Congress, exc;(;t

The o- ly interest in the e'ection in

the Siventh, District show heavy Dem
ocratic gains over 1884, when S. nulls
was elected by 3501 niajnri'y. There
is a strong piobability ot E hott's elec

tbe apithy of the colored voters.
Pan Francisco, Cal , November 2.
One peculiar feature of the present
political campaign in California is tbe
number of independent parties that
bave sprung inio txlstence. There
are five State tickets in tho fie'd
Drmociattc, Republican, Pichibitinn,
American Tarty and the Anti Coolie,
headed by Dr. O'DLnnell. In San
Fr;nchco there are co less than
twelve municipal tickets, some styling
themselves ropieseaUtives c f tbe ia
bot inteiest, ethers being the expres
sion of anti bos rule. In the south
ern part of the State tbe political figbt
has-been embittered by the refusal of
the leading Republican paper of Los
Angeles to countenance the nomina
tion mide by the Republican State
Convention of Walter AIcos for Secre
tary of State. Ia the Sun Joaquin
Valley the American party ticket bas
attracted contiderable attention. The
present estimate pieces the rote at
10,000. Tbis fact, together with tho
number of old tickets in tbe field, has
created a general feeling of uncer
tainty, the lesult of which will be the
heaviest "sciatchit g" ever known in
Louisville, Kr., November 2. The
election for (Jnrgretsmen and State

rote of Louisville was very light,
about 13,000 out of a registered vote
of 24,000 being cast, the majority of
those who 'emained away ftom the
E oils being Democrats. Willson (Rip )
as an estimated majority of 180 in
the city, while tbe connty gives Ca
ruth (Dem.) an estimated majority of
250. It is thought tbat the returns,
which are not yet all in, will not differ
materially from thess figures. Tha
most doubt'ul districts ara the Third

This does not include tbe cities and
seveial of the larger towns, in which
Republican losses were expected. The
indications sre that there is no choice
for Gorernor by tbe people; thst Mo

Trenton, N. J., Norember 2. The
campaign in tbis State has been prose
cu'ed with marked rigor br tbe Re
publicans and Democrats. Tbe Pro
hibitionists deroted tbeir woik main
ly to the Assembly dhtric's in the
southern portion of the State, and
they only claim they will elect aome
members cf tbe Stats House of Assem
bly there, though they baro a full
Congressional and Legislative ticket in
the field. The only State officer to be
p'ected ih's year is a Gorernor. The
Republican standard bearer is ex-Ccn-gresaman
Benjamin F. How'ey, of
Warren connty. The Democratic can
didate is ex-Judge Robert 8. Green, of
Union county, now representing tbe
Toird Congretsional Dietr ct. The
rrohibitiot.ists candidate Is Gen. Clin

firat opened the Prohibition rote tor
Gorernor wis estimated at from 18,-.

Milwacbke, Wis., November 2.
At midbigbt, it is considered tbat the
entire State Republican ticket has been
elected by a handsome majority with
Gcv. Rusk leading. The plurality will
probably exceed 20,000. ThB Lgiela
ture is Republican with a reduced
majority ou joint' ballot. The labor
party has eleced from ten to twelve
members of the Legielature, and their
leaders claim tbey have enough to
hold the balance of power, and
thus cor.t'ol the election of a United
Sta'es Senator. The Congressional
delegation will be: First District, T.
