The Fat-Frying Process Not a Success. Carnegie, Prick and Friends Refused to Bungle Up. More Cash in the Democratic Colters Than the Republican, Says tli ■ Spellbinder in Reply to Cleveland's Charges. By tbe Associated Press Jamestown, N. V., Nov. 2.—Chauncey M. Depew and Whitelaw Reid traversed three counties in Western New York today, making speeches in advocacy of President Harrison's election. Large bodies of voters were addressed by the speakers at Belmont, in Allegheny county; at Salamanca, in Cattaragas county, and at Jamestown, in Chautau qua county. Two meetings here, one in the after noon, mainly attended by farmers, and the other in the evening, 'attended chiefly by the city residents, brought to an end the electioneering tour of the distinguished gentlemen in the state. Thousands of persons greeted the pair when they arrived here, and they were immediately escorted to the wigwam, where every foot of space was occupied. Chairman Stevens of tbe Republican city committee introduced Reid, who depicted the splendid condition of tbe country under Harrison, and said ths Democratic policy would be making a change, if adopted, that would lead to commercial disaster. Depew opened hia speech with the statement that everywhere he traveled in Western New York he looked upon new factories which were making votes for Harrison and Reid. Concerning Cleveland's speech laet night, Depew said in part: "I read with great interest Mr. Cleve land's speech in New York, last evening. It is characterized by unusual clearness of statements and directnecs of charges. It calmly ignores all the leading issues and puts to the front a new question. Tariff is incidentally referred to; the force bill, state bank currency, money question and leciprocity are not men tioned. It ia evident that the Demo cratic leader regards his party already beaten on those subjects, and abandons them The attention of .'lie oonutrjMta called by an ex-president of the United States and candidate for re-election to the corruption of the franchise aud the large sume which are raised for oampaign purposes and the manner in which they are expended. On the gen eral proposition, danger and im morality of these vast expenditures in presidential campaigns, there can be no division of opinion. The Republican party would b« glad to meet Mr. Cleve land and the Democratic party half way in any legislation whicu would make impossible, by proper penal enactment, the raising and distribution of money by candidates and campaign committees. " The startling thingaboutCleveland's addießS is, having stated the evils, he charges that moneys are raised and dis tributed solely by committees and through agencies of the Republican party. The accusation is so absurd that it would require neither mention nor relutation, except for the eminent au thority behind it. It is unfortunately true that large sums are raised by both parties for political purposes. Cleveland himself, in the last canvass, though then president of the United States, a comparatively poor man, contributed $10,000 to the Democratic fund, and he has done the same this time. There were at least half a dozen gentlemen upon the platform when Mr. Cleveland was speaking who knew that the amounts alleged to have been contrib uted and to he in the possession of the Republican national committee are pur posely exaggerated, while the sums raised by tbe Democratic committee are constantly underestimated. ''Neither party is able to raise as tnuclwnoney this year as was collected in 1888. This is notably true of the Republican canvass. The sums as cribed to Carnegie, Frick and their friends are fictions of the campaign im agination. Neither gentleman really contributed a dollar. The Democrats have been able to raise an unusual amount of money. Regardless of civd service rules, assessments were never more remorselessly pressed. Every Democratic office holder has been taxed 10 per cent of his salary. While the federal office holders cannot be reached, and do not contribute, the state officials of New York are within the clutches of the Democratic campaign committee. The pay roll of the city of New York amounts to $17,000,000 annually, while the pay roli of the state is very latge. The assessments from these sources alone are greater than tbe entire sum in the possession of the Republican na tional committee. This is supplemented by at least $500,000 which was raised by a few well known Democrats. "I therefore do not hesitate to claim, aud certainly no well-infoimed Demo crat will deny, that the Democratic committee is in possession of 25 per cent more funds for campaign purposes than the Republican committee. If Mr. Cleveland is kept in ignorance by his party managers of tbe existing con ditions, in order that be may make statements such as last night, the Dem ocratic committee is deceiving him ; en deavoring to deceive the country, and should receive through public senti ment, and its popular expression at the polls, the punishment which they de serve." There was a big parade of the Repub lican clubs of Jamestown and vicinity tonight; there being fully 20,000 men in line. At the conclueion of tbe meeting, Reid departed for New York and De pew for Buffalo. Boyd Is a Fusionist. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 2..—Governor Boyd's leUer to a friend haa been pub lished, in which he advocates Democrat ic support of the Weaver electors in Nebraska. PROCEEDINGS DISMISSED. The Constitutionality of the California Itallot Law Not Vet Tested. San Francisco, Nov. 2.—The proceed ings instituted by H. R. Robbins and James Welch to have the present ballot law declared unconstitutional, and ask ing for a mandate against the secretary of state, the election commissioners and the register, to compel those officials to give them ballot paper to take to their homes where they could fix up their tickets, was dismissed by the supreme court today. The chief juetice an nounced that the other justices agreed with him on the question that it was of too much importance for them to at tempt a decision on an imperfect hear ing. He advised that the proceedings be dismissed, without prejudice, as it could be renewed after election, if de sired, when a more lengthy bearing could take place. Wanamnker Among the Hoosiers. Frankfort, Ind., Nov. 2.—Great crowds gathered from the surrounding country, and several thousand voters greeted Postmaster General Wana maker on his arrival here this morning. At the Columbia theatre, which was packed to its utmost capacity, Mr. Wanamaker spoke at length in com mendation of President Harrison's ad ministration, and admonished hia hear ers of the importance of every Indiana Republican doing his duty for the 1 lousier son. LIKELY TO BE A CLASH. TROUBLE EXPECTED AT THE POLLS ON ELECTION BAY. Federal Intxrference at the Polls Will Be Resented In New York, ag Well as In Portions of the South. New York, Nov. 2.—Within the past 24 hours birth has been given to ele ments which may come together in this city on election day with a sharp crash. One of the elements is the announced adherence by the attorney-general to the custom of the past, under Judge Brad ley's decision, in accordance with which federal supervisors of election are passed anywhere they deem wise within elec tion enclosures. The other and oppos ing element lies in the fact that Lieu tenant-Governor Sheehan, chairman of the New York state Democratic cam paign committee, has issued an address to the Democrats of the state, in which he cites Judge Brewer's decision, and calls on the Democrats to see to it that federal surer-'isors do not enter the booths. Judge Brewer of the United States supreme court has ruled that super visors have no right to enter booths or go behino the inclosure where the bal lot boxes are. Secretary De Freest of the Democratic state committee, speaking today of At torney-General Miller's circular and Sheehan's opposing order to the Demo crats, said he believed federal super visors had no right in the booths, and they would not be allowed to go there. He eaid the Democrats would see to it that they stand outside of the inclosure where the booths and ballot boxes are. This construction foreshadows a possi ble clash of the two elements referred to on Tuesday next. It has been ascertained that the law officers of tbe department of justice, at Washington, carefully examined the statutes and opinions rendered in cases arising out of aliened violations of the election statutes, before yesterday's cir cular was issued by Attorney-General Miller. In the ex parte case of Siebold et al .Justice Bradley held that the na tional and state jurisdictions were con current, but wherever a conflict oc curred, the former was supreme. It held that the law authorizing deputy marshals to keep the peace at national elections is not unconstitutional, and that the national government has a right to use physical iorce iv any part ol the Unitf d States to carry into exe cution the powers conferred upon it. The leaders of both parties here have been further informed from Washington tote; Acting Attorney General Aldrich sent the following telegram to United States Marshal Walker at Montgomery Alabama, this afternoon, in response to a request for instructions: "See last paragraph of circular mailed you today. Use your discretion, remem bering and so instructing your deputies, that they are peace officers and not par tisans, and that the law was enacted to secure a free and honeßt ballot and fair count." Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 2.—M. L. Wood, chairman of the Democratic cam paign committee of Dallas county, tele graphed Gen. Charles M. Shelly," chair man of the state campaign committee, that B. M. Walker, United States marshal of Alabama, had appointed deputy United States marshals to super intend the election in that county No vember Bth. General Sheily telegraphed Wood that the appointments were illegal, except in cities with more than 20,000 people, and instructed him to have the sheriff appoint deputies to arrt-«t the deputy marshals if they undertook to interfere with the election. Walker, on being interviewed, aaid: "I appointed deputy marshals for Dallas county at the request of reputable citi zens of that county. I defy anyone to arrest or interfere with any deputy who wears the badge of a deputy marshal on election day." The Colorado Ballot Trouble. Denver,Nov 2.—The latest move in the resignation of the Weaver electors from tbe Cleveland ticket is the issuing of an order by Judge Miller of the county court to County Clerk McGaffey, re questing him to remove the names of the Weaver men, in accordance with their request. As the ballots are now being printed, it looks as though the Cleveland ticket would go in, beaded by People's party electors. The California Registration. San Francisco, Nov. 2.—The total reg istration in California for the election of 1892 is 344,000; the total vote in the presidential election of 1888 was 251,000.

He Must Spend the Rest of His Days in Prison. No Time Lost in Starting Him Off for The Jail Keeper at Fresno ISreatheg Eas ier—A Gruesome Trwgedy in San Francisco — Seven Indi ans Cremated. By the Associated Press. Fresno, Nov. 2.—George Sontag, the train-robber, was sentenced to life im prisonment today. The officials lost no time after Son tag's sentence to Bend him through to hiß future home. As soon as Judge Holmes had pronounced the sentence, arrangements were commenced for starting. A hack was engaged and was ordered to be at the jail in time to catch the noon train for the north. When Sontag was informed, after being taken back to jail, that he waß to go at once to the penitentiary, he did not manifest any concern, although it waß evident that he wae surprised at the suddenness of hia removal. He commenced pack ing his valise with such things a° he wanted to take with him, and before the time came for starting be wae ready. Another prisoner named Gaetno was to go with him. Gaetno was to serve five months for burglary. He and Son tag were fastened together by handcuffs. They stood thus chained together for nearly half an hour in the corridor of the jail, waiting for the hack to come and carry them to the train. It came at last, Sontag bade adieu to the prison era and he and Gaetno were thon con veyed to the depot and they were soon speeding on their way to Folsom. The officials at the jail were glad to get rid of Sontag; not that he gave any trouble so far as hia conduct was con cerned, for he was a good prisoner, but there was a constant dread that his friends would come to rescue him, and no man knew what that effort would consist of. It waa feared that the jail might be blown up, 'or tho finding of dynamite a few weeks ago had strength ened this feur. Now that he is gone the officials feel easier. Sacramento, Nov. 2. — Detectives Thacker, Hume and Hickey, reinforced by Constable Hill of Fresno, arrived here tonight with George Sontag, the train robber, who will be taken to Fol som prison in the morning. , A GRUESOME TRAGEDY. Poverty Induces a Mother to Kill Her- self and Hon. San Francisco, Nov. 2. —The bodieß of Mrs. J. G. Johnson and her 15-year old Bon were found at their homo in the Mission district this morning. They had been dead over a week and the bodies were in an advanced stage of de composition. Both held revolvers clasped in their bands. The son had been shot three times, one bullet taking effect in the back, another behind the temple, and the third in the temple. The bullet which ended tbe mother's life penetrated the temple. People in the same house had noticed their non-appearance during the week, but no inquiries were made until the odor of decomposition led Mrs. Roderick, a neighbor, to loos: into the Johnsons' window this morning, when the body of the boy attracted her attention and led to the further discovery. Mrs. Johnson's husband went east about a year ago to Becure employment, and since then contributed nothing to their support. The eon waa not ot a strong mind and was unable to assist hia mother, who was compelled to sell all the household effects to support them. Poverty was undoubtedly the motive. It i 3 believed that Mrs. Johnson first shot her son while he was asleep, then retired to her own room and killed her self. It is eaid Mrs. Johnson has a sister residing in Napa county. THE CLIPPER RATE WAR. Seven Ships Now Engaged Iv the San Francisco-New York Trade. San Francisco, Nov. 2.—The Mer chants' Shipping which ia backing the Grace & Co. line of clipper ships, has just engaged its seventh sail ing vessel, the General Knox, which is now on its way from Europe to New Yoik. The Henry B. Hyde will begin loading at New York about the 20th inst. The W. H. Starbuck is on the way from New York to Philadelphia to load. There are four Bhips of this line now on the way around the horn. The vessels carry cargoes which will aggre gate about 11.000 tonßof freight, belong ing to San FrancißCO wholesale mer chants. The clipper rate war still continues with no immediate prospect of a treaty of peace. The proposition to incorporate the Merchants' Shipping association and make it a permanent proprietary com pany, with a fixed capita), instead of a temporary arrangement from which any party concerned may withdraw after giving 30 days' notice, is being dis cussed. A Heavy Opium Seizure. San Francisco, Nov. 2.—One thou sand flve-tael cans of opium were eeized by the customs officials on the steamer Oregon, from Portland, this morning. The opium is valued at over $16,000, and the duty thereon is estimated at $10,000. Forecast of the Kansas Vote. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 2.— J. Ware But terfield, secretary of the Republican Btate league, estimates the vote of this state at 346,000. On that basis he esti mates Bidwell'e vote at 5000; Weaver's 157,000, and Harrison's, 183,600. The state ticket, he thinks, will receive prac tically the same vote. PRICE FIVE CENTS. A FATAL ORGIE. Seven Indians Burned to Death While In a Drunken Stupor. Spokane, Wash., Nov. 2.—Wild Goose Bill, who bai just arrived in the city from the Okanagon country, brings news of the burning of seven Indians near Alma, Monday night. They came across from the reservation and got drunk, and the marshal drove them back. They went to an abandoned cabin and held an oigie until 2 o'clock in the morning. About that hour the settlers observed a bright light, and an investi gation showed that the cabin caught fire and burned. The Indians, who were in a drunken stupor, were all burned to death, only their charred bodies remain ing. CINCHED FOR CONTEMPT. Two Arizona Editors and Officials In Hard Lnck. Tucson, Ariz., Nov. 2.—Last week R. C. Brown aud George W. Brown, pub lishers of a weekly paper here, were in dicted by the grand jury for criminally libeling Brewster Cameron. Tbe de fendants made an attack on the court and jury for which they were today brought up for contempt before District Judge Richard E. Sloan. The judgment of the court is that each pay $100 fine, ana that R. C. Brown be imprisoned 30 and George Brown 60 days.

The Explorer Found In a Dying Condi tion on the Street at Portland, Ore., From ar Overdose of Laudanum. Portland, Ore,, Nov. 2.—Lieutenant Frederick 0. Schwatka, who made his name famous the world over by com manding the expedition to the Arctic region in search of the records of the lost Sir John Franklin party, is dead. The lieutenant was found at 3 o'clock this morning, lying on First street, near Morrison, by an officer. By his Bide was a half empty bottle of laudanum. He was in a comatose condition, and was immediately removed to tbe St. Charles hotel, where he was placed in a chair. The supposition at first was that the lieutenant was intoxicated, but as hiß condition grew alarming at the end of an hour, the patrol wagon was called for, and the sick man was taken to the city jail. A telephone message brought Dr. Wheeler, the city pbrsician, who discovered that the lieutenant was suf fering from what appeared to be nar cotic poisoning. From the jail the lieutenant was im mediately sent to the Good Samaritan hospital, where everything was done to restore him, but in vain; and he died at 5 o'clock this morning. Lieutenant Schwatka bad been suffer ing from a complication of troubles, and had shown symptoms of apoplexy on numerous occasions. Hia life had been marked by such a degree of conviviality that his Btomach had of recent years given him much trouble, and for the purpose of finding relief he used email quantities of laud°num, uunallv taking from 15 to 20 dror, . Last evening hia stomach trouble ci me on with so much severity that he complained bitterly, and sought relief. Going to a drug store, he asked for two ounces of lauda num. The druggist asked him if he had a prtecription. lie re plied that he had not, but as he was a gradjate of a medical college he could soon write one. The druggist re plied that it was not necessary and gave Schwatka the drug. He went away, and after visiting a political club he was not seen after 9 o'clock until picked up on the street. Lieutenant Schwatka had just re turned from a visit to Salem.Oregon.his former home. This afternoon Dr. Wheeler held an autopsy on tbe remains. With the ex ception of a slight congestion and ad hesion to the membrane, the brain was found to be in a healthy condition. Dr. Wheeler gave it as his opinion that death was caused by an overdose of laud anum, taken to allay pain in tbe stom ach, not with suicidal intent. The body will be kept here until word is received from Mrs. Schwatka, who is living at Rock Island, 111. Michigan Electoral Questions. Lansing, Mich., Nov. 2.—The chair man of the Democratic state central committee has applied to the supreme court for a mandamus to compel the common council of Detroit to rescind ita resolution appointing inspectors of elec tion. The city is ordered to show cause tomorrow why the mandamus ehould not be granted. It is contended that the inspectors should be elected at the polls by the voters the first thing elec tion morning. The supreme court declines to issue tta mandamus asked for in the Shiawas see county case, involving the conflict ing claims of Youmans and Thompson to have their names printed on the offi cial ballot as the regular People's party nominees for congress. Accordingly there will be two complete Populist tickets in the field. Will Not Retire Alone. Indianapolis, Nov. 2.—Attorney-Gen eral Miller, in an interview tonight, con firmed the report that he is to retire from the cabinet of President Harrison next March, whatever may be the re sult of the approaching election. Mil ler stated that he made up his mind to this effect over a year ago. Official life is uncongenial to him, and not as lucra tive as his private practice. Extra Congressmen Denied.
