The New Party Expects to Do Great Things. Major McKinley Tries to Make Vic tory of Defeat. A Negro Crank Causes a Bloody Biot at a Democrat Jubilee—Elec tion Returns. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Nov. 8. —President Polk, of the National Farmers' Alliance, is very jubilant over the result of the elec tions. In an interview today ho said: "The Democrats and Republicans are claiming everything just now, but when they come to sift the chaff from the wheat, they will find that the Farmers' Alliance had something to do with electing a fair proportion of good men who will have seats in the next con gress. Up to the present time, it is a certainty that congress will contain thirty-eight straight-cut alliance men, and there are twelve or fifteen more who are pledged to us. These men are from the south and northwest, the two sec tions in which most of our work was done. The alliance in Nebraska, Min nesota and lowa is not our organization, and is not amalgamated with us, but it made the same fight, and will join us this winter. Our alliance will co-operate with any farmers' association, and in a little while have a grip on the situation in almost every corner of the land. We are here to stay. This great reform movement will not cease until it has impressed itself indelibly in the nation's history. Financial re form is the necessity of the hour, and it must come. The press and the voice of the stump speaker were our only assist ants. The Alliance has no campaigu fund, no boodle. If we had had money we would not have used it. The principles on which the Alli ance is founded are solid and correct. We must succeed. The fight was no small affair. The extremists of both parties attacked us bitterly, and gave no mcli of ground. In the south it was the Democrats who opposed us. In the north our most vigorous antagonists were the Republicans." ASSAILED THBi PROCESSION. A Democratic Jubilee the Occasion of a Bloody Biot. Marion, Ind., Nov. 8. —A Democratic celebration here today was made the occasion for a bloody riot. When the procession was moving along the principal street a negro of huge propor tiojff ran into the procession, brandish ing a club and revolver, and commenced firing and knocking right and left. Al Powell, a white teamster, who was walking in the procession, was shot and instantly killed. William Campbell was shot In the arm, Bill Cam waß shot in the leg, Jim Berry received a bullet in the face, and Jerry Frasier (colored) received a ball in the leg. The colored man who started the riot, and whose name cannot be ascertained, was shot twice in the back after he had killed Powell, and was placed under arrest. He was taken away with the mob howling at his heels, and reports from Fairmont are to the effect that there is a prospect of lynching. Sheriff McFreely has gone to the scene, and will endeavor to pro tect the prisoner. Cooler heads at Fair mont are also using all their influence to prevent violence. The darkey who did the shooting came to Fairmont a few days ago from Anderson. WHAT M'KINLEY SAYS. He Argues That He Won a Victory Not withstanding His Defeat. Cleveland, 0., Nov. 8. —Congressman William McKinley, who was in the city this evening, said to a' reporter, refer ring to his election : "lam well satis fied with the results in my own district. I gained 3000 votes during the cam paign, which lasted but three weeks. The Republican victory on the state ticket was The unfairness of the gerrymander was manifested most clearly by the election. The Republi cans carried the state by a popular ma jority of over 12,000, while the Demo crats secured two-thirds of the congressmen. Protection is strong er today than it ever was, and it will continue to grow "in favor. The tariff bill was misunderstood and shamefully misrep resented. The latter was done by im porters, many of whom are not citizens of the United States, and are free-trad ers. lam sure it will win in the end. The same issue will como to the front in 1892, and then it will be better under stood. The Republicans have little to fear in the future, if they have a free ballot and a fair count. Major McKinley feels confident that the senate will pass the Lodge federal election bill before the close of the next session. South Dakota Returns. St. Paul, Nov. B.—A Pioneer Press Huron special says: Additional returns increase the Republican senate to twenty five, with several districts not reported. The Republicans have a majority in the house, the opposition having only forty eight, provided aU the unreported dis tricts are theirs, which is not at all likely.

Other specials to local papers give the capital to Pierre, by from 8000 to 12,000 majority. Henderson Elected. CnicAao, Nov.

Washington, Nov. 8. —Following is the president's Thanksgiving proclama tion : By the president of the United States, a proclamation : By the grace and favor of Almighty God, the people of tbe na tion have been led to the closing days of the passing year, which has been full of the blessing of peace and the comfort of plenty; bountiful compensation has come to us for the work of our minds and hands, in every depattmentof human industry.

The Raise Made on Account of the Duty on Tin Plate—Chicago Packing Houses to be Removed. Chicago, Nov. B.—The Chicago pack ers of canned meats at a meeting today decided to advance the prices a quarter of a cent a pound, because of the in creased cost of tin under the new tariff. They also considered a plan oi moving the stock yards and various pack ing house plants to a point south of the city and nearer the lake. After the meeting Armour said the yards would be removed. It was shown to be feasible to establish, at a profit, new and greatly improved yards and packing houses, with better facilities for handling stock, and at less cost. Tho present yards will be used for other purposes. BLEW OUT HIS BRAINS To Avoid MaTry ing the Woman He Had Wronged. Chicago, Nov. B.—A strange story was told today at an inquest on Edward C. Hunt, a young pharmacist who last night blew his brains out in a saloon. The story is that he was to have been married today to Miss Monte Delia Mc- Croskey, said to be the daughter of a cattle king in the new state of Washing ton. According to the story told by one of Hunt's intimate friends, he left his home in Garnett, Kansas, a year ago for a trip in the west for his health. On the road he met Miss McCroskey, and their friendship soon resulted in an engagement. Although no ceremony was performed, they lived together in Tacoma aB man and wife. Hunt soon departed for the east, and Miss McCroskey discovered after a while that she was about to become a mother. Wishing to avoid scandal she came for a visit to friends in lowa, and remained there until her child was born. It did not live long and the young woman then ' determined to hunt her recreant lover up. Coming to Chicago she met him and demanded that he marry her. He agreed, and the wedding was fixed for today. Nothing more was heard of Hunt from last Monday until last night, when he walked into a saloon, accom panied by three lewd women. He bought them drinks and telling the bar tender that he had no money, offered his overcoat in settlement, saying he would not need it again. The bartender refused to accept it, and without a word, young Hunt whipped out are volver and sent a bullet through his head. He has wealthy relatives in Gar nett, Kansas. THE ALASKA CENSUS. Some Extensive Traveling Done by the Enumerators. Washington, Nov. B.—A bulletin from the census office upon the census of Alaska, is composed of an introductory statement from Superintendent Porter, and a letter from Special Agent Peti off, describing his experience in organizing a force of enumerators, and in collect ing statistics. He began his work Feb ruary 10th, last, divided the territory into eight divisions, organized a force of assistant special agents for field work, from residents familiar with the language and country. The enumeration is nearly completed, but returns have been re ceived only in part, and some cannot be had until next spring. Mr. Petroff's jour ney in Alaska foots up about 12,000 miles, and the distances there traveled by his assistants probably foot up more. The superficial area of the territory is esti mated at 570,000 square miles. Balfour and the Irish. Dublin, Nov. B.—Balfour had a long interview with the Catholic bishop at Letterkenny yesterday, and received deputations of prominent citizens, ask ing for railway extensions. Balfour de clared that the present government's period of office would be looked upon as the era of efficient public works in the poor districts of Ireland. At Armagh he received an address from the inhab itants. Here a number of Nationalists cheered for Gladstone and O'Brien, and were attacked by Unionists present. A scrimmage ensued, the Unionists, who were the more numerous, finally sap pressing the Nationalists. SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 9, 1890. WEST COAST NEWS. The Vote on California Con gressmen.

CAPRIYI'S MISSION. The Object of His Call on Crispi Fulfilled. Francis Joseph to Visit King Humbert in Rome. Success Crowns tlie German Chan cellor's Mediation. Austria Alone in Its Hankering for Re prisals on the McKinley Bill. Cable Letter. Associated Press Dispatches. Berlin, Nov. 8. —[Coprighted by the New York Associated Press.] Chancel lor Yon Caprivi, who has been visiting Milan this morning, received a deputa tion of German residents of the city, who presented an address. In replying, the chancellor spoke in terms of unoffi cial frankness of the object and results of his meeting with the Italian prime minister. He congratulated his visitors upon living in the beautiful country, which was the center of art interest, and which was under a government that was linked with that of Germany by a policy of peace. His interviews with Signor Crispi, he said, cemented and perfected the entente of the dreibund. He had no anxiety as to the immediate future, and was confident that peace would be maintained for a long time to come. The chancellor did not go to the length of disclosing the issue of the dis cussion of Signor Crippi's demand that the Emperor of Austria return King Humbert's visit by going to Rome. Relations Farther Strained. The relations between the Italian court and the government of Austria have been further strained by advices from the Italian ambassador at Vienna, that Cardinal Galimberti, papal nuncio, is operating with Emperor Fran cis Joseph, through the empress and archdukes, to break Aus tria's connection with Italy. The Riforma of Rome contrived to get hold of the dispatches from Cardinal Galimbarti to the pope, reporting pro gress in the diplomacy tending to iso late the Italian government. The au thenticity of the dispatches has not been denied. Prime Minister Crispi has been for a long time urging the emperor of Austria to return King Humbert's visit. He now insists upon Austrian recognition of Rome as the capital of Italy, by the emperor to the Quirinal. Caprivl's Mediation. Official belief here is that Chancellor I - £p N^^^^^^j^^^o *" "ro 1890. A PHENOMENAL CATCH. j» Special to the Herald.] Redondo, November 9th. —The citizens of this place were thrown into a state of great excitement this afternoon by the strangest catch ever known in these waters. The angler, a well-known resident, was armed with a bamboo rod of only ordinary size. He had waited in vain for a bite for nearly half an hour when he felt, at the end of his line, a fish evidently endowed with enormous strength. The battle which ensued has probably never been paralleled in piscatorial annals. It attracted two-thirds of the popula tion of the village, so rapidly was the exciting news circu lated. The beholders could scarcely believe their eyes when, as the finny monster was drawn out of the water, its side was found to be adorned with the business card of the LONDON CLOTHING CO., whose bargains are now attracting almost as much attention as the fish itself will receive from anglers all over the country. -*fij>B A YEARK- Buys the Daily Hhuld and »2 the Wukxy Hbbald. it is towsTand clean. FIVE CENTS. Yon Caprivi started with authority to serve Signor Crispi and King Humbert, by the promise that the Emperor of Austria would go to Rome in the spring. Communications from Count Kalnoky, the Austro-Hungarian prime minister, received before the chancellor left, it is understood, announced that Emperor Francis Joseph would submit, in the event of Signor Crispi maintaining that his reception in Rome is necessary for the continuance of the triple alliance. Caprivi's remarks indicate that the affair has been settled in accordance with Signor Crispi's demands. Mooted Reprisals. The reports that the chancellor mooted combined reprisals against the United States, because of Oe McKinley bill, are unfounded. Austrian papers are hankering after retaliation, although negotiations here for a commercial coa lition resulted in utter failure. Italy is least affected by the bill, of any Eu ropean state. She would not risk of fending America to satisfy a doubtful ally. The chancellor will return in time to prepare for the opening of the landtag Wednesday. Keforins That Will Be Opposed. Several reforms that are certain to be promised in the speech from the throne will be seriously opposed. A reduction in the tariff on wheat and rye, and re form in the communal laws aiming at the abolition of the old feudal rights, will be fiercely contested by the old con servatives. The belief in ministerial circles is that the emperor is determined to make no concessions. If the lower house refuses to accept the projected re forms, the government will be dissolved without delay. The Heligoland bill for the landtag does not conceal that the island is to be used for war purposes. Dr. Stoecker's Dismissal. Dr. Stoecker has not been daunted by his dismissal from the court chaplaincy. He is preparing for a wider and more intense anti-Semitic campaign. He re tains his seat in the reichtag, and seems decided for fiercer agitation in favor of political reaction. The emperor's selec tion of Dr. Day sander. as chief chaplain,ad interim, is due to an acquaintance formed while his majesty was a student at Bonn where Dr. Daysander was a pastor. The French papers were accurate in the prediction of tbe speedy Germaniz ing of Luxemberg. The Frankfort Zei tung states that the French language will be replaced by the German, and other measures will be taken to assimi late the people with those of Germany. Archduke John Not Lost. Officers of merchant ships familiar with the Cape Horn routes, discredit the report of the loss of Captain John Orth, Archduke John of Austria. The Santa Margherita, the vessel which he commands, is a good ship and is well manned. She might be safe though she should not be heard of for a month longer. The Berlin actress, Milly Stu bel, who is the morganatic wife of the , archduke, joined him just before hia i vessel sailed from Buenos Ayres.
