Carnegie, Prick and Friends Refused

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

lican clubs of Jamestown and vicinity

Reid departed for New York and De
pew for Buffalo.

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

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

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
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
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.

He Must Spend the Rest of His

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

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

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.

Indianapolis, Nov. 2.—Attorney-Gen
