Thurston, of Omaha, president of the Republican League clubs of the United States, in an interview here today on the recent election, said, referring to the influence of the McKinley hill upon the result: The natural tendency of prices was upward, among which can be named boots and shoes, iron, lumber and other commodities, although the tax was reduced upon these and other things. "We struck a rising market with thg passage of the McKinley bill, and all this is laid to it." Judge Thurston thinks Nebraska and every other western state will go Repub lican in 1802. "I think," said he, "tliere will be a revival of stahvartism in tl»e Republican party, such as to make 1892 a great Republican year. Republican workers all over the country did not take active part in this campaign. They felt as though their services to the Republi can party had been undervalued, but in 1892 these persons will be at work in support of some candidate who will arouse enthusiasm, and these very men will lead to victory as heretofore. The result of the recent elections has not put an end to the presidential chances of either William McKinley or Thomas B. Reed, but it has probably postponed their dates, and Blame or Alger would be winners at the head of the ticket in 1892." A DESPKIIATE LEAP. One of Kube Iturrowfc's Pals Suicides by Jackson, Miss., Nov. 10. —Joe Jack son, one of Rube Burrows's gang, con fined in the penitentiary awaiting trial for train-robbery, whose trial was to have begun this morning, suicided by jumping from the third-floor corridor to the ground, a distance of sixty feet.

AN UNKNOWN ASSASSIN'S COW ARDLY CRIME. A Wealthy Old Rancher Wantonly Slain While Hospitably Entertaining a Noc turnal Visitor. Merced, Cal., Nov. 10. —A terrible murder was committed last night near Merced Falls, a small village on the Merced river, about twenty miles from this city. John L. Ivett, 70 years of age, worth half a million dollars, and without an enemy, was the victim. Ivett lived at his ranch, near Merced Falls, with his wife, a young girl of 20, to whom he had been married about two years. He had two houses, one occu pied by his ranchmen, of whom there were usually a dozen, and the other in which he lived himself. The latter house was about two hundred yards from the former, up a small hill. It was Ivett's practice to retire early, and last evening ho left the lower house, saying he would go home and write a letter to his wife, who had been in San Francisco for some time. He was not seen again until this morning, when one of the ranchmen found his body at the head of the stairway leading to his wine cellar. It is conjectured that after go ing home, Ivett lit a lamp aud com menced to write a letter to his wife, as the unfinished pages were found on his desk. It is supposed that the murderer rode up to the house at this time, tied his horse outside, and, entering the room where Ivett was, engaged in conversa tion with him. Ivett, who was a very hospitable old gentleman, doubtless in vited the man to goto the wine cellar with him, as this was his rule with all visitors. It is supposed as they came up from the wine cellar, together, Ivett stopped to close the cellar door, when the other man struck him two murder ous blows on the head with a hatchet, or a similar instrument. J he old man fell partly down the stairway, the cellar door catching and holding his foot. The coroner's jury is now in session, but nobbing definite as to the identity of the the murderer is yet known. It is thought robbery could not have been the cause for the crime, as no valuables in the house or on the body were disturbed. THE NATION'S FINANCES. Wliat ibo Treasury Department Is Doing Tln-se Days. Washington, Nov. 10. —Secretary Win dom was kept fully advised of the con dition of the money market today, but did not feel called upon to take any action in the matter, beyond the pur chase of silver bullion that was offered to the department. The director of the mint said this was done for the relief of the market. The available treasury cash balance will be used principally in the redemp tion of the 41.J per cent. loan. The sec retary's offer of October Oth to redeem this class of bonds on presentation, at par,with interest to maturity, September 1, 1891, is still open. Bonds are coming in very slowly, however, and the total redemption to date is less than $5,000, --000. Six hundred thousand ounces of sil ver were offered and purchased at the treasury, as follows; 100,000 ounces at $1.8200; 50,000 ounces, at $1,031; 100, --000 ounces, at $1,032; 50,000 ounces, at $1,033; 100,000 ounces, at $1.0345; 100, --000 ounces, at $1,036 ; 50,000 ounces, at $1,037 ; 50,000 ounces, at $1.0373. The amount of silver purchased at the mints during the week ending Novem ber Bth, was 275.850 ounces. The total amount purchased ior this month, in cluding purchases at the 'mints and to day's purchases at the treasury, is 2,180, --800 ounces. A Bootblack's Bloody Crime. San Francisco, Nov. 10.—Augustine Olagues, a bootblack in the Baldwin ho tel, went home in a drunken condition tonight and found his wife in a room with another woman. He reproached her with association With bad women, and then went down stairs. His wife heard two shots and rushed to see what was the matter. She found her husband with a pistol in his hand, and as she en tered the room he shot her through the neck. He then cut his throat witli a ra7or. Both will proßably flip TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 11, 1890. A LONDON FETE DAY A New Lord Mayor Installed With Great Pomp. Speeches by Members of the Cabinet. Lord Salisbury Discourses on Various State Topics. The Rear Guard Controversy Still Going On—David Dudley Field on tho Social Problem. Associoted Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 10. —Joseph Savory was today installed lord mayor of London, with all the pomp that has for years attended tbe ceremony. This evening he gave the customary banquet to the ministry. Secretary Stanhope, replying to a toast to the army, announced that all the regular troops would be armed with new magazine rifles early next year. Lord Salisbury, in replying to the toast, The Government,said he regarded as a good omen of peace the fact that the cearewitch was about to visit India as the guest of the queen. Although the dispute with Portugal has not been so happily arranged as matters with France and Germany, still the position did not justify sinister apprehensions. Referring to America, Lord Salisbury said: The McKinley tariff bill will cer tainly affect some portion of British commerce. The free-traders could re joice over the recent electoral victories in the United States as a protest against extravagant and utterly selfish protec tion ; but they must not draw their con clusions too rashly. They must still face the prospect of prohibitive tariffs. Knglandihad no retaliatory scheme, as she had reduced her own tariff to the lowest point. Referring to the relations between labor and capital, the pre mier said: If they had an eight-hour bill forbidding men to exercise their strength and skill an hour or two more, thus imposing hindrances on production, they must be prepared to meet as a natural result the victorious competition of other countries where labor is not so embarrassed. The government, he declared, would not in terfere in the disputes between capital and labor. Unwise theorists and inter ested politicians might mislead some workingmen, but the heart and mind of the country would remain patriotic and true to the economic and commercial traditions. The premier-said he believed the Mc- Kinley bill was due to the idea that American pigs had failed to receive proper treatment at the hands of Eu rope. He regarded the tariff question as tbe world's conflict of the future. It will be an interesting consideration for us, he said, whether our attitude can be sustained, or whether the madness of our neighbors will force us to deflect in any degree from the sound sensible po sition we now occupy. The premier declined to enter into political prophecies, the futility of wiiich, he said, recent events had shown. For instance, Boulanger won the bye elections in all the elections of France, but failed to win in the end. Skilled wire-pullers in America were surprised at the sudden uprising of free trade, and European political men were equally astonished at the defeat of the govern ment in Greece. THE REAR GUARD SCANDAL. Mrs. Jamieson Denies the Charges Against Her Husband. London, Nov. 10.—In an interview today, Mrs. Jamieson denounced as the basest fabrication the story that her late husband purchased a girl and turned her over to the natives to be killed and eaten, in order that he might have an opportunity of witnessing and sketching cannibalistic scenes. She says the sketches Were only incidents coming un der his observation as a traveler. Stanley will Prosecute. London, Nov. 10.—The Pall Mall Ga zette says Stanley will prosecute Walter Bartclot and others, who brought the charges against him in connection with the controversy regarding the rear guard of the Emm relief expedition. Stanley has retained George Lewis and Sir Charles Russell to conduct the case. Civilization's Honor at Stake. Paris, Nov. 10. —Temps says: The Stanley controversy must be referred to a court of justice. The honor of civiliza tion is involved in the matter. EDUCATING HIS SUBJECTS. Emperor William Prescribes a Curricu lum for the Public Schools. Berlin, Nov. 10.—The National Zei tung says: The emperor will shortly issue an edict directing that the teachers in the national schools must be familiar with the principles of political economy, to enable them to demonstrate the errors of socialistic teachings. In religion, less attention will be paid to mnemonic exercises, and more to the comprehension of the ethical side of religion. In the high schools, recent modern history, especially of Prussia, must be taught, and the benefits which the Prussian kings have always con ferred upon workingmen, must be in culcated. The edict was drafted before Bismarck resigned. SOCIETY WILL ENDURE. il May Be Fiercely Shaken, But It Will Not Fall. London, Nov. 10. —A meeting of the liberty and prosperity defences league was held today, at which David Dudley Field of New York presided. Field de livered an address on the functions of the state. He said the state ought not to provide work for the people nor fur nish them with bread, clothes, houses or lands. Of all the means to reconcile the conflict between capital and labor, nothing, in Field's opinion, was com parable to co-operation. He did not be lieve the Socialist theories, which are now menacing and disturbing society, would ever be generally accepted. So ciety might bo fiercely shaken, but it would not fall. CONDENSED CABLEGRAMS. Godard, the famous French aeronaut, is dead. The Bank of France has consented to supply Madrid with £300,000 in gold. Count Maurice Esterhazy, formerly Austrian minister to the Vatican, is dead. The defeat of the high tariff party in America has depressed the Russian tariff party. A bloody conflict at Ottensen, a suburb of Hamburg, between striking glass blowers and 300 Polish black legs, re sulted in one man being killed and many injured. Prof. Koch has dismissed as com pletely cured, several of the patients whom he has beon treating for consump tion. The method of treatment will be made public within three weeks. UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE. The Belgian Proletariat Firm In Its De mands. Brushdls, Nov. 10. —Delegates to the radical association waited upon tbe mu nicipal council today and presented a petition in favor of universal suffrage. At the same time an immense crov. dof workingmen assembled around the Hotel de Ville awaiting the result of the petition. The Burgomaster promised the delegates that a bill should be intro duced in the chambers. This failed to satisfy the workingmen who received it with threatening demonstrations. The number of people in the crowd is esti mated at ten thousand. The govern ment holds a large force of troops in readiness for action, but though rioting is feared, no disorder has yet occurred. Admiral Ohry Dead. Paris, Nov. 10. —Vice-Admiral Obry, commander of the French Levant squad ron, is dead. MURDEROUS ASSAULT. RAILROAD COMMISSIONER REA NEARLY KILLED. AyDlfficulty Arising Out of tho Late Cam paign Nearly C'o3ts Him His Life—He Bests His Assailant. San Johk, Nov. 10.—Railroad Com missioner James W. Rea was the victim of a murderous assault today. This a? ternoon'he went with hisfather,Thomas Rea, of Gilroy, to the oflice of the Light and Power company, where the eider Rea told the secretary, Walker Gilles pie, that he wished his stock in the company transferred to his son, James W. Rea. The reason, ho said, was that Uriah Wood and other members of the company, during the campaign, had cir- Striated the report that Commissioner Rea had abused the trust of his father, and misused funds. He desired to give the lie to the statement, and show his confidence in his son by transferring all his stock to him. Here Gillespie made some insulting remarks, and when he was warned by Commissioner Rea to desist, redoubled his abuse. Mr. Rea, Sr., prevented his son and Gillespie from coming to blows. But Gillespie finally ran for his pistol. Commissioner Rea headed him off, when Gillespie picked up a heavy eteel pince bar and struck him three hard blows on the head, making big gashes and nearly felling him to the tloor. By a super human effort Commissioner Rea rallied and dealt Gillespie a stunning blow on the neck with his fist, then grabbed him by the collar and punished him un til he begged for mercy. Rea is one of the principal stockhold ers in the new light company which has secured all the public business and a large portion of the private lighting, and feeling against him on the part of mem bers of the old company is very bitter. The wounds in his head are severe and bled profusely, but serious results are not apprehended. A Political Crime. London, Nov. 10. —The appeal of Cos tioni, the Swiss radical, who was ar rested in London on a charge of killing Counsellor Rossi during the recent re volt in Ticino canton, and whose extra dition was ordered by the lower Eng lish court, came up for hearing in the high court of justice today. Sir Charles Russell, for the prisoner, argued that the Ticino movement was a popular revolution, and therefore tiie killing of Rossi was a political crime, for which his client could not be extradited. The hearing was adjourned until tomorrow. The Greek Deputies. Athens, Nov. 10.—The chamber of deputies was opened today by the king in person. In his speech, his majesty made the members of tbe cabinet con vinced of the expediency of returning to the electoral system, based on the old laws. Crushed Humanity.

She craves the mercy of Bright and Haines, who is engaged to Bright's daughter, and who, Miss Riordan charged, was formerly engaged to herself. Young Alfonso Doomed. London, Nov. 10.—The Chronicle's Berlin correspondent says it is rumored in Catholic circles, that notwithstanding official assurances to the contrary, the young king of Spain is weak and not likely to live long. It oil lunger Leaven Jersey. London, Nov. 10.—It is reported that Boulanger has left the Wand of Jersey for an unknown riestination. CANVASSING VOTES. Election Commissioners Be gin the Official Count. Some Discrepancies in the San Francisco Returns. The Votes of Several Counties Offi cially Announced. Lieutenant-Governor-Elect Reddick Feted By His Townsmen—Defeated Candidates Banqueted. Associated Press Dispatches. San Francisco, Nov. 10. —The- board of election commissioners began the offi cial canvass this morning of the vote cast at Tuesday's election. The returns from the first precinct of the twenty ninth assembly district were lirst opened, «nd it. was found that there was a discrepancy between the returns and the tallysheet of one vote for governor and two for supervisor. A warm dis cussion arose as to whether the board should correct the tallysheet or figure out the changes after the total vote was counted, or throw out the returns from that precinct. The question of throw ing out the precinct forthwith was re jected on a vote, and that of laying the precinct over until the full commission was present was carried. The second precinct of the twenty ninth district showed that the vote for governor was correct, but one candidate tor supervisor was credited with ten votes more than the returns showed. When the count of the second pre cinct had been completed, another dis cussion arose, as to the advisability of appointing computation clerks to verify the tally sheets before the totals are canvassed. There was Borne opposition, during which one member of the com missioners declared that he would not be present at tbe eanvassingof any tally sheet that was incorrect. Legal advice present, expreseed the opinion that the canvassing of the returns was the duty of the commissioners, and any frauds on the face of tbe returns could be settled by the courts. Pending a decision in the matter, the commission adjourned. The San Bernardino Canvass. San Bernardino, Nov, 10. —The board of supervisors officially canvassed the votes today. Following is the result: For governor—Markham, 3012; Pond, 2290; Bidwell, 417; Markham's plu rality, 792. 11 PHENOMENAL CATCH. 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. -*$8 A YEARH- Buya the Daily Herald and 12 the Wkkki.y Herald.
