GEEMAXI'S 1CQ0ISITI0XS IN 1FEICA The 6trike fever is still rampant in Europe. London's 14,000 policemen are now agitating a movement of this nature for a redress of grievances. They claim to have received a promise of financial assistance lrom the "United States. Other labor troubles are numerous. The Socialists are taking ad vantage of the situation to spread their doctrines. 1BT CABLE TO THE DIErATCn LONDOK, -May 3L Copyright The discontented London policemen have been folding meetings this week and there has been wild talk of a strike. The movement is not serious, however, and is confined to young men who have not been long in the lorce. Grievances undeniably csist.but they areola character that can be remedied with out revolutionary methods,and Commissioner Jlonro enjoys the confidence of an over whelming majority of the 14.000 men under his command. Cablegrams have been pub lished here to the efiect that the Sew-York policemen are preparing to support their London brethren in the coming struggle. The facts of the case have evidently reached America in a grossly exaggerated form. XOr A CASE FOB ASSISTANCE. It is hoped by friends of the policemen here that the prospect of American dollars will not encourage the men to run their Leads against a brick wall. A case more worthy of sympathy is that of several thousand workmen employed by the Lon don Gas Light and Coke Company, a gigantic monopoly whose operations em brace nearly the whole of the metropolitan area north of the Thames. Encouraged by the success last winter of a much smaller company in South London, the big company has apparently made up its mind to crush the men's trade union. The men have been called upon to sign an agreement by which they must give a month's notice to leave work, but the com pany may dismiss the men at a moment's notice, and mty actually coafiVate all wages owing to any man so discharged. It is not surprising to learn that the men re fuse to accept such outrageous proposals and that public sympathy is w ith them. A POWERFUL COEPOBATION. The company is enormously wealthy, and could easily spend 1,000,000 in fighting the union. But money alone will not enable it to win a struggle in which public opinion would be at the back of the workmen. In continuance of their new fighting policy the Socialists are engaged in a de termined attempt to capture the London Trades Council. The Secretary of that im portant body, George Shipton, has held the pott 18 years, having been re-elected an nually, and, as a rule, unanimonsly. TTp till last fall his position was as secure as it ever had been, but since then many new organizations, mostly ot un skilled labor, such as the dock worker:, have secured the right to send delegates to the council; and it is upon these new-comers that extremists rely for success. The elec tion will take place next week, and indica tions are that Shipton will win by a bmall majority. The struggle is stirring London trades unionism to its depths. THE SOCIALISTIC PLANS. John Burns is credited with tbe deign of abolishing the London Trades Council, as it at present exists, and replacing it by a larger body representative of all labor, skilled and unskilled, within the metropolitan area. As soon as this great confederation of labor has been constituted it would take in hand the question of foreign labor. Special officers would be appointed to wait upon the labor immigrants with a view to send them back or to draft them into the union. Postmaster General P.aikes has been en deavoring to stop the agitation for better pay and shorter hours among government telegraph clerks by forbidding them to meet for discussion oi grievances unless an of ficial stenographer is Dresent, A national conference of telegraphers took place at Leicester to-day, at which the men cheer fully denounced P.aikes' orders as ty'ranical and unconstitutional edicts, resolved that their leisure time belonged to themselves and decided to refuse admission to the gov ernment note-taker. Tbe men are well or ganized and full of fight, and as Baikes is as obstinate as a male he may force matters to a general strike much more serious than that which took place nearly 20 years ago.

GAMBLING IN ENGLAND. EARNEST EFFORTS TO LESSEN IT PROVE FRUITLESS. Tue Police Itald the Hnrhble Places, but the Aristocrats are Undisturbed A National I.engne Formed for tho Pur pose of Aiding In Iho Suppression. xbV CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.! London, May 31. The recent denuncia tions by bishops and other high-placed keepers of British morals of the growing evil of gambling in this country has been followed by the establishment of a National Anti-Gambling League. The Earl ol Aber deen has accepted the position of President, and among the Vice Presidents are several prelates of the Church of England and leading ministers of non-conformist churches. The object of the Jeague is "to offer strenuous and uncompromising opposi tion to every form of betting and gambling and to diffuse among young men and others useful information on the subject" The average young man here gets daily plenty of information on the subject in sporting articles and stock exchange re ports in the newspapers. It the league can convert the journalists and stock brokers within the next hundred years they will have made a fair start The statute books contain many laws directed against pretty well every farm of gambling except stock exchangcfspecnlation, but this evil, by gen eral consent, is at the present moment more flourishing than it ever was. This atternoon, for instance, the police at Newport, Wales, raided a dozen betting places frequented by the humble specula tors, and arrested scores of people who in due course will be fined in small sums. The same thing is done iu London frequently, and conld be done daily with a certainty of a big haul of sinners. But the police do not like the work, because they are invaria bly accused of making humble offenders suner at the expense of aristocratic offend ers whom they are not allowed to touch, and magistrates are often actnated by the same feeling. Next week, however, there will be a number of raids in London on the eve of Derby day. But the "West End clubs will not be touched, and a roaring betting busi ness will, as usual, be transacted at the aristocratic Tattersall's, under the very noses of the police. TOBIES XS TBOUBLE. Gladstone' Adherent Continue to Gain Ground With En eta Passing Day BT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, May 31. Mr. Gladstone has passed the week in making speeches to Liberal excursionists who have visited Hawarden from nearly every part of the country, to the number of about 10,000. This has become practically an annnal cus tom with the Grand Old Man, and a very useful one, too, because every excursionist returns to his home full of missionary ardor. Mr. Gladstone will return to Lon don on Tuesday and will remain until the close of the session. There is to be a private conclave ot Liberal leaders and party man agers next week, from which momentous" results may come. It will be decided, I am assured, to con tinue and extend that fighting policy in Parliament which has already seriously embarrassed the Government and infuriated its followers. The Tories call it obstrnction and beseech the country to take note of the wickedness of the Liberals who are clogging the administrative wheels. The appeal has evoked no general response because there is absolutely no popular feeling in favor of the menaced measures. The next week or two will decide whether the Government shall sacrifice a part of its legislative programme or endeavor to carry the whole by means of an autumn session. In either case the Government will be further dis credited and the gain must be with the op position. A GBEAT IJECT0BE TBI0 Comlnc to America iu General and the CUT of Pitlsbnre In Particular.

He came overhere on businessjand has accomplished it He has engaged for lecture tours in America the three most prominent men in the United Kingdom, and he has his financial eye on two more leading entertainers. His con tracts already embrace Sir Morell Macken zie, Prof. James Bryce, author of "The American Commonwealth," and Stanley, the last in a measure conditionally, though the Major and Stanley both consider tbe thing done. Dr. Mackenzie will go to America in August and Brice in September. The terms of each are the same, namely $500 per lecture for 20 lectures each. Major Pond will, bill them for all the large cities. and especially for Buffalo, Cleveland, Bochester and Pittsburg. These last four towns he says have au educated taste and prefer lectures to theatrical per formances. The engagement with Stanley is only conditional in so far that tbe great explorer has in mind that he may be called upon earlier than he expects to assume his duties as ruler of the Congo State. Other wise he will go to America in October and he has authorized Major Pond to make en gagements for him Bubject only to the con siderations mentioned. GERMANY'S FLOATING BAZAAB. A Groat Steamer Which Will Soon Pay a. Visit to America. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.1 London, May 31. The German steamer which is intended to make the rounds of the ports of the world carrying a floating bazaar as cargo, is now being loaded at Hamburg, and the originators ol the idea hope that she will sail before the end of June. Stalls are to be erected on tbe decks, and German goods will be displayed to all possible ad vantage. There will be curiosities and side shows, refreshments peculiar to the Ger man nation, and mnsic of the Fatherland's composers, given by faultless Teuton bands, and a small army of commercial travelers who will invite largely all possible cus tomers at every port of call. There was au idea of having young ladies to preside over some of the stalls, but it did not entirely commend itself to the favor of some of the older heads, thinking the dam sels might part with their own sensitive hearts, as well as with their goods and quit the ship altogether. Each voyage is to last two years and the first stopping will probably be at Hew York. The great ship and her fittings have cost a quarter million pounds.

At the General As sembly of the established Presbyterian Church of Scotland to-day there was inter esting discussion on the question of allow ing an optional or partial liturgy, and the matter was finally referred to a special com mittee. The nltra-Proteitant members of the Church bitterly oppose the proposed re form, which they fear will lead to what they term Bomanism. But the younger clergymen are strongly in favor of it, and they have secured such a powerful following among the laiety that it is practically beyond doubt that permission to use a liturgy will be conceded very soon.

The Prime Minister declared that he had always aimed at a sincere alliance between the Monarchy and the Democracy. The situation of Italy abroad, he said, was never so good as now. Her policy had proved successful and she enjoyed the re spect of all the powers. A motion expressing confidence in the Government was carried by a vote of 329 to 61.

The President ot (he Local Liquor Denier Arrested and Fined. nTECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1 Boston, May 3L The first skirmish, of the "public bar" campaign was lought in the Municipal Court to-day betore Judge Forsaith. It went against Mr. San born, President of the Retail Li quor Dealers' Association of Bos ton, and the champion of the licensed victuallers. He was found guilty of keep ing a public bar, sentenced to pay a fine of 5100 and costs, and appealed to a higher court All of the material facts in the alle gation were admitted by Mr. Sanborn, and the argument made by his counsel, Mr. Morse, was purely on legal lines, which he showed to diverge most remarkably. In a nutshell Mr. Sanbofn's case is this. He sells liquor and food, or liquor or food, to customers as they may decide. He does not keep a bar or tables exclusively lor the facilitation of the service of liquors. He serves liquor at a long counter, where food is also served, or at a table. You may order either or both at will. He has been doing this for 15 years. The Government's contention is this: That no one can serve a glass of liquor over a bar or counter or table without it is part of an order for food. Any one who does brings his establishment within the meaning of the "publio bar" of his statute. It was with this view of the case and that it might be satisfactorily parsed upon by a higher conrt that Judge Forsaith found the defendant guilty. ..STABYING ITALIANS Refuse to Allow Railroad Work to Proceed Colli They are Paid. SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1 Mat's Landing, May 3L The Italian laborers on the new Seashore Railroad, who went on a strike Thursday because they had not been paid their wages for several weeks, still refused to allow the company to do any more work until 'they are paid. They have two engines and work trains blocked with ties. The Italians have received reinforcements, from other gangs further up the road who have joined them. A work train with the officials of the road and about 50 American laborers went to Folsom this morning, and tried to pacify tbe angry Italians. Their efforts were in vafn and an effort was made by the Italians to block them in with ties, but they were driven back and the train returned to Bich land. The Italians are said to be in a starving condition, not having eaten for several days. Warrants have been issned for the arrest of all of them. The warrants are now in the hands of Sheriff Smith E. Johnson, who refuses to act until Monday. He has appointed 200 deputy sheriffs. The Italians aie desperate and serious trouble may be the outcome. HOW A DBUG OH THE MABKET.

Since the announcement the fact has leaked out that a swindle, the same as was perpetrated on the applicants in Erie county, of which an account was published in The Dispatch. For the 36 positions to be filled, there.were at least 300 applicants in the connty who were advised to purchase a lonntain pen, for which the superintendent was acting as agent for a firm iu New York. The pens could be had at a cost of $2 0. The applicants in most every instance took it for granted that they would be ap pointed, and eagerly made the purchase. Since,the enumerators have been announced, fountain pens have .become a drug on the market in the county, and quite an uproar has been raised. THE TOUTED PBESBYTEBIAHS.

JUNE ROYALTY AT NIAGARA Queen Victoria's Hopeful Third Son and Parly Visit the GREAT AMERICAN ATTRACTION. The Duchess Goes Into Raptures Over the Superb Spectacle. liOIAL CANADIANS WEEE OUT IN FORCE To See That No Hirm Befel Their Highly Ornamental -iu-i hut Eipenslre Toy. The Duke and Duchess of Connaught, with their retinue, visited Niagara Falls yesterday. Quite a crowd welcomed them on the Canadian side, after which they crossed to the American shore. The Duchess was much impressed by the scene. rSPSCIAL TELEORAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Niagara Falls, May 3L Shortly after 12 o'clock to-day Prince Arthur, the Duke of Connaught, looked for the second time in his life upon the reat falls of Niagara. The royal tourists and party arrived at Clifton from Tor onto at 12:05, having -made , the trip in Sir George Stephens' private car. The depot, which had beeu handsomely dec orated with flags, was crowded and Chief of Police Thomas Young found some difficulty in piloting the distinguished visitors from the car to the carriage waiting outside. The party was quickly driven along the river bank to the Clifton House, where they were registered as H. B. H. the "Duke and theRDuchess of Connaught, Sir J. Mc Neil, K. C, Colonel and Mrs. Covage and Dr. Killkelly. The rooms assigned to the party had been arranged especially and were handsomely decorated with' flowers. The windows opened out upon a broad balcony, and were almost di rectly in front of the American Falls, while they commanded excellent views of the Horseshoe Falls, the State reservation, Queen "Victoria Park and a long stretch of the upper river. BATHER LOOK THAU EAT. The Duchess went into raptures over the views and conld hardly be prevailed upon to leave the windows long enough to partake of a light lunch, and only when told that her drawing room window furnished the same view. The Dnke looked upon the view more as a mat ter of fact, having thoroughly studied the falls during his former visit in his younger days. He was overheard to express general satisfaction and pleasure that so mnch land had been taken by the Government and the many unsightly buildings removed. After a little lunch the party annonneed that as a slight change in their plans would make it necessary for them to leave for Montreal to-morrow afternoon, Buffalo would be visited this afternoon, as the Duchess was very anxious to see an American city. While the party was waiting the arrival of the carriages to con vey them to the depot on the Amer ican side, they stood upon the lower verandah, thus giving the guests of the hotel and the crowd that had gathered around the opportunity to gaze upon royalty. The Duchess seemed the most unconscious of them all and was ap parently enjoying some pleasant conversa tion with Sir John McNeil. DRESS OF A DUCHESS. The Duchess is about medium height, rather slight of build, with a face which, while pleasant, is not one that wonld attract particular attention. She was dressed in a walking skirt of black and white check bound in plaid with short basque waist to match, and black velvet vest buttoned very high in the neck. A very narrow brimmed, high crown hat was surmounted with a white wing, and tbe upper portion of her face was covered with a light lace veil. On her left arm she car ried a short drab colored jacket and her hands were covered with light undressed kids. A tbe Duke made his appearance his re semblance to the Prince of Wales could easily be seen. He is not as heavily built, however, and wears a mustache. He was dressed in a business suit of gray and wore a brown soft felt hat. The party lelt the hotel shortly after 2 o'clock crossed the upper suspension bridge and took a regular train on the New York Central for Buffalo, where the after noon was spent driving around the city. They returned at 7 o'clock for din ner, after which the party took a moon light view of Niagara. To-morrow will be spent in sight-seeing and toward even ing the party will start en route for En gland by way of Montreal where they have two engagements for Monday evening. On Tuesday they st3rt for Sir George Stephen's fishing'ground and spend a day or two in salmon nsning. HIS FORMER TISIT. In 1870 the Duke, having just at that time come of age, visited this country, with the late Lord Elpkinstone and the late Lord Lisgar, and spent a week at the Clifton House. During his stay a party was given in his honor and the Dnke opened the ball with Miss Florence Bush, now Mrs. H. D. Bob in son, of New York. Chief of Police Young, who is now looking after the party, was at that time de tailed by the Government to accompany the Duke while he was in this section. During tbe two hours the party was at the Clifton the Duke told them much of his early visit to Niagara, the incident of which seemed fresh in his memory. The Duchess is the favorite daughter ol the famous "Bed Prince," Frederick Charles, of Prussia, hero of the Franco Prussian war and nncle of the present Emperor of Germany. She was born in I860 and in 1879 married Prince Arthur. She is not exactly pretty, being somewhat of the German type, but is extremely clever and a brilliant conversationalist. FOB TEE W0BILVS FATE.

Nelson Dingley, Congressman from Maine, and Hon Frederick T. Greenhalge, Congress man from Massachusetts, while among the 250 gentlemen present were many who are prominent in national and State affairs. President Merrick made allu sion to Secretary Proctor's refusal to officially recognize the death of Jefferson Davis, and it met with demonstra tions of approval lrom the assembly. Presi dent Merrick introduced Secretary Proctor who was received with applause. His speech did not deal with National affairs at all, be ing devoted chieflv to reminiscences. Fol lowing him came Speaker Heed. Among other utterances were these: We have jnst passed through the House of Representatives a tariff bill, and passed it with a unanimity of action on the part of the Re publicans without parallel in the history of the country. Doubtless here in Massachusetts and elsownere in New England there is an idea prevalent that you might cairy on some of your own industries to greater advantage ir you had what was called free raw material. That may he, but tbe simplest course in this world is not al ways the satest. Remember that tbe punciple upon which protection is founded is not tbe fostering of a few pet industries but the pre serving of tbe American market to tbe Ameri can people. It you demand it you must grant it. it jou believe in it for yourselves you can not stand up and disbelieve in It for others. Congressman Dingley and others also spoke. HEABLY AN INDIAN WAB. A Conflict vlyerted by the Poor Markman shlp of a Border Desperado. SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. : Denveb, May 31. The people of South western Colorado can congratulate them selves on the poor markmanship of one Walter Morrison, for, had his aim been trne, there is no question but a bloody con flict would have taken place between the white people on Pine river and the TJte Indians. Agent Bartholomew, who came to Dnrango to-day to swear out a warrant against Morrison, gave the following par ticulars; During the afternoon two TJtes went up to the store at Lost Pines, just above the reservation. One of the TJtes accused Morrison, who is a hard character, of stealing his horse. At this Morrison ran into the store, grabbed a Winchester and opened fire on the Indian, who waion horse back. The horse the TJte was riding dashed away, and in going through adump of trees the Indian was thrown to the ground. As tbe horse returned to the agency rider less, and the Ute could not De found, it was taken for granted that he had been killed. The TJtes became very much excited, and inside of two hours 150 warriors had assem bled 'at the agency with Winchesters and ammunition, and the squaws were on their way south. Whenever the bucks send their squaws away it means business. The TJtes were all ready to visitPine river and avenge the death of one of their number when the missing TJte walked into camp. They de clare that if Morrison is not arrested and prosecuted they will have revenge. - : STGAB THE DANGEE0TS POINT In tbe Consideration of the DIcKInley Tariff Bill in the Senate. rFT.OM A STAFF- COBBESPOITDEXT.I Washington, May 31. After a day of recreation the Senate Committee on Finance got together this morning and resumed hard work on the tariff bill. It was ex pected that some of the manu facturers interested in the glass, earthen ware and iron and steel schedules might be at hand to request a hearing, but no one put in an appearance, and, as there was little desire on the part of the commit tee to make serious changes in any of the schedules, consideration of the bill went along swimmingly and before the noon re cess thechemical, pottery and glass schedules bad been disposed of and that of iron and steel taken up. The latter was almost finished before ad journment this afternoon, and in all of these no change was made which would affect any manufacturer materially, as the correspon dent of The Dispatch was assured by one of the committee. The prospects are that, with the exception of the provisions in regard to sugar, there will he little discussion over any feature of the bill in committee, and that aside from this it will be reported to the Senate substantially as it came from the House. Possibly there may be no ohange even in the sugar provisions, bnl if the committee sticks anywhere it is expected to stick on that. PEOHTBmONISTS AEOTJSED. A Meeting Held nt Den tl wood to Consider , Original Package. Deadwood, S. Dak., May 31. The con tinuous sale of intoxicating liquors through out this locality under the original package system, moved the Prohibitionists of this connty some days ago to call a meeting here for the formation of an enforcement league, to urge upon the officers and courts of this county tbe enforcement of the prohibition law ot the State, and to bring to their attention all violations of the same. In connection with the call, there also appeared in the sanie papers a call for a mass meeting of the business citizens and taxpayers of the county at the same time and place to give expression to a sentiment that the people and citizens of this locality and county are a law-abiding people, and that necessity exists here for an Enforce ment League. Under the two calls more that 600 citizens of the county assembled to-day at the Court House, and "the latter sentiment prevailed almost 20 to 1, but those holding for the for mation ot a league adjourned to the Metho dist Church, and with a membership of 36, organized such a league for this county. Public sentiment has become greatly agi tated here among all classes over this pro ceeding, which many consider a disregard of the law as determined by the recent deci sion of the United States Supreme Court upon this question.

ONE LOVER IN LUCK. An Idabo Man Wins a Senator's fiicce for His Bride, and is Then APPOINTED'AS, C0SSTJL TO INDIA. i - The Ladj Gives tip a Career on the Stage at the Call of Cupid. HABRISOK'S PLANS FOB THE STJM1IEE. The White House Has Thns Early Been Dismantled for the Season. Miss Aldrich, a niece of Senator Stewart, is engaged to a Mr Wildman, of Idaho. She had' fully determined to go upon the stage, but this project has now been aban doned. The young man has just been appointed Consul to Singapore, India, at a salary of 3,000 a year. rSPSCIAL TELEORAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Washington, May 31. The just an nounced engagement of Miss Aldrich, Sena tor Stewart's niece, and Mr. Wildman, of Idaho, is interesting because of society people's interest in Miss Aldrich. Of Mr. Wildman it may be said briefly that he had passed the winter in Washington as tbe representative 6f. an Idaho newspaper, that be has wooed and won a charming woman, and that he has obtained the appointment of Consul to Singapore, India. Perhaps one might add that after winning a Senator's mere to be hfs wife, Singapore was the foregone conclusion. India and Idaho are very far apart in more ways than distance in miles. To summer in Idaho and winter in India would have its romance, and the small salary of $3,000 a year would certainly go farther. A "FIXED DETEBMINATION. However, it is of Miss Aldrich that people care to know, not entirely because brides are of more "interest than bridegrooms, but because of this young woman's "fixed de termination" to go on the stage. It is well known that Miss Aldrich has spent a great deal of time in study for the stage, and that previously she was regarded as one of the best amateurs in Washington. About a year ago she nrade herTTebut as a professional, and several times, she has ap peared belore a fashionable Washington audience. During the past season Miss Aldrich has lived with Senator and Mrs. Stewart at the Sboreham and has cone much in society. So naturally did she seem to fit in social life and so little reference was made by her near friends to her stage career " that her fixed determination to enter the profession was for the tine quite lost sight of. It is said that while Senator and Mrs. Stewart did not oppose their niece, they didn't encourage her preference for the stage. Bnt it seems that Mr. Wildman is responsible for Miss Aid rich's change of heart, and that he alone persuaded the young woman to give up her dreams of professional fame for the Jess ambitious and sweeter dreams ot matrimony and Singapore. INSTEAD OF THE STAGE. So to Singap6re they will go for their wedding journey and the wedding is to take place early iu June.

It is now certain that the President's family will not go to Deer Park lor any part of the summer. Though no definite plans have been made, it is more than likelv- that their summer will be passe'd at the seashore this year. Tbe White House is already in a dismantled state of summer attire."

It is an old fashioned house, remodeled and very spacious, set in grounds of several acres, and just out of the business portion of the town. It is a new home and, though in a different location, is successor to the beau ful one lost by fire when the valuable library and every keepsake ol their married life was burned." Tbe engagement of Senator Bates' daughter, Miss Susanne Bates, and William Child, of San Francisco, is an nounced. The wedding will take place in June. . PERHAPS HIS LAST BIBTHDAY.

BAYNE WIRS EASILY J But the Neeb-Rutan Contest Is Just a Little Too Close for Comfort, BOTH CLAIMING A VICTORY of Fraud in m and THE CONTENTION WILL BE LIVELY. A Few Surprises in the Legislative Dis tricts Add to tue interest. LIST OP THE TEMPOKAEI CHAIKME5 Congressman Thomas M. Bayne yester day secured a majority of the delegates to Tuesday'3 convention, thus being sure of a renominirtion. In the Senatorial contest on the Northside, Neeb and Butan ran neck and neck. It will take the convention to decide, jrfter all coutests are settled. There were several surprises in the Legislative contests. Pine weather permitted heavy voting at the Republican primaries yesterday throughout Allegheny county. Tbe voting was generally quiet. Congressman Thomas M. Bayne was re nominated for Congress in the Allegheny district by a large majority, 'in the Pitts burg district there was no opposition to Congressman Dalzell's delegates. The county ticket is also without opposition. The Senatorial contest between James S. Butan and John N. Neeb was the feature of the day. It will probably be settled only after the convention meets and acts. A stormy time is anticipated. There will be several contests Before the contention, and Chairman McClung will have alively time. There are numerous cross-charges of fraud, both in the voting and the counting. Both candidates claim victory. Beturns are in from all the Legislative contests, but it is absolutely impossible to say how all the delegates will vote in con vention. The First and Seventh districts are doubtful. From the present indications the follow ing will be the nominees on Tuesday: Congress, Twenty-second district John Dil zell. Congress, Twenty-thlrd district Thomas M. Bayne. Senate, Forty-second district Undecided. Senate. Fortv-fonrth district William Flmn. Legislature.t'irst district C. W. Bobisonand B. F. Kynd. second district James uurajum anu niu- m T Marshall.

Some of he districts were reported to be carried by close votes and the official returns may chance them. There will be a number of contests. Tbe attention of the politicians at ths several headquarters was almost solely di rected to the Congressional and Senatorial contests, and returns were received from few districts on the candidates for the Legis lature. In the First district B. F. Eynd is cer tainly nominated for one place on the ticket. The other place is claimed by both Hon. Charles W. Bobison and Charles A. -Vluehl-bronner.
