Republicans Arc l'repariny to Get
Evidence in Case of Contests.
Men Will Stand Guurd at Every Pulling
Pluce una Keep Tub on the Number

Live Political News.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Washington, Oct. 10.
Everybody at Republican headquar
ters is confident. It is expected that the
Republicans will elect enough mem
bers In the north to constitute a ma
jority of the next house. Any men
tallied in the south will but add to that
Reports from "the south are encour
aging. A surprising number of Re
publicans and Populists will be re
turned from that section. The Republi
cans and Populists In every close dis
trict are preparing for contests In the
next house, which they anticipate will
be Republican. In every precinct Jn
many of the close districts there will
lie a box outside the polls In charge ot i
two Republicans. Every Republican
and every man wanting a fair count
will place an additional ballot there, so
there can be an outside count for use
In a contest, while two witnesses will
count the voters, so If a precinct casts
400 ballots and 1,200 be returner, It evi
dences fraud. Arrangements have also
been made to take the affidavit of every
Republican and Populist voter for con
test purposes.
This preparation, with the fear of a
Republican house, has a good effect.
Knowing thut any evidence of fraud is
apt to ,be used to upset them, the
Democratic candidates are very care
ful. The result is that there will prob
ably be fewer votes counted for Demo
cratic candidates and the defeat of
some of them will follow. This the case
in a district like that of Enloe, of Ten
nessee, where the Republicans are so
strong that lie will be defeated If the
count is fair.
The Southern Populists are an Im
portant factor In the situation!" They
are protectionists and In most respects
Republicans. They are not so radical
as their western brethren and are more
representative men. Their sympathies
are Republican and they, wherever
possible, are helping that party.

Erie, Pa.. Oct. 1. Last time It is to
have cost Joseph C. Sibley $.15,000 to se
cure an electlnn to congress from this
district. This year, Sibley professes to
have shut down on ;the "workers;"
but they seem just as busy and Just as
"flush" as ever.
One of the important factors in the
local campaign Is the lurge contigent of
Democrats who are for the Democratic
ticket, but who are working openly and
unitedly for Sibley's defeat. They are
moving heaven anil earth to accomplish
Sibley's defeat.' If present indications

county committee, who has had it care

New York, Oct. 16. Senator Faulk
ner, of Virginia, chairman of the. Dem
ocratic national campaign committee,
was In conference this morning with
John Boyd Thacher at Democratic state
headquarters. At the close of the con
ference a statement was issued by
Senator Falkner which says that after
the passage of the tariff bill, which was
generally ' misunderstood, the Demo
crats had little hope of carrying a ma
jority of the Fifty-fourth congress.
A better understand of the provisions
of the law, the statement continues,
has stoped the bickerings which were
dividing Democratic councils and har-
monlzed the factional troubles, and the
prospects are now blight for a fair
working majority In the next house.
The statement makes a strong appeal
for harmony In New York, saying the
loss 6f one congressman may Involve
the loss of the next house and of the
next presidency.
They Will Hun a County nnd Cltv Ticket
in New York.
By the United Press. '
New York, Oct. 16. A pecullnr phase
of the political situation here is the
appearance of the Independent county
organisation, composed mainly of He
' brews, who threaten to bolt the nom
ination by Tammany of Nathan Straus.
The leaders of the organization have
determined to run candidates of their
own for all county and municipal of
fices, and may also take a dig at as
semblymen and aldermen. They wlil
make a special drive for Julius Hur-burgi.-r,
who will be their candidate for
sheriff. Mr. Harburger is grand mas
ter of the Independent Order Free
Rons of Israel of the United States, and
has a large personal following among
members of his race.
They have not revealed their candi
date for mayor yet, but say that he Is
nn American and a veteran soldier. It
Is thought many votes which might
have been cast for Straus for mayor
will be counted for this ticket.

Washington, Oct. 16. General Har
rison's receptions on the stump In In
diana give his admirers and support
ers here a good deal of comfort and
encouragement, and justify, they con
tend, their claim and expectation that
his name will be the central and com
manding, factor In the next Republi
can national convention. .It cannot
longer be said, as they declare, that
General Harrison lacks the solid sup
port of his party friends at home. The
only Republicans in Indiana now, they
assert, are Harrison Republicans.
General Harrison's own feelings with
regard to 181)6 are frequently referred to,
though never by authority. He knows
what Is being said about him as a pres
idential quantity, and must know how
actively some of his home friends ore
trying to forward his chances for the
nomination two years hence. But Cen
eral Harrison never draws conversa
tions around to his own fortunes. He
is carrying himself in the embarrass
ing premises, us he usually does, with
dignity and perfect good taste.
Puts the Management of the Campaign in
His Enemies' llunds.
By the United Press.
New York, Oct. 16. Senator Hill is
trying an experiment that would not
even be thought of by a man less bold
In political moves. II has put the
campaign in the charge of his party
foes, the men who have called him hard
names In the past and have sneered at
his every act. 11111 wants money, and
he wants It very 'much. He supposed
that because of his light against the
income tax the New York merchants
and millionaires would pour out their
nfoney before him.
But his appeals for money were not
v,,hly successful, und he looked about
lor a new expedient. He had an exec
utive campaign committee appointed,
and two-thirds of the men whom he
had, appointed to this committee are
men who hare fought him desperately.
But they have money and influence,
and Hill hopes to secure both from

By the United Press.
Wheeling, W. Va., Oct. 16.
From .now on the campaign In the
Second congressional district will be
warm. Now that the great free trade
leader has started on his hippodrome
tour of the district to wako up the apa
thetic Democracy, the campaign will
get lively In earnest. The feeling Is
that his cause Is desperate and that It
will require more than the powers of
his eloquence to get into line the
disgusted Democratic miners, lumber
men and wool growers Iwho form so
large a part of his constituency.
The first meeting of the hippodrome
tour at Charleston," Wilson's own
home, was disappointing to the mana
gers. The meeting at Romney was
tame, and the meeting at Piedmont
was a failure. Wilson now enters the
great coal and lumber region, where
the chief opposition to him lies. At
Piedmont he strikes the West Virginia
Central and Pittsburg railroad, which
traverses one of the richest coal and
lumber districts in the state now in j
process of development. On that road,
within a few miles, seven large spruce
mills are idle and a thousand men out
of employment because the owners ,
say they cannot compete with Cana- I
diun spruce under the new tariff bill, j
which puts Bpruce on the free list. In
addition the mines owned by the Davis- 1
Elklns company are praetioullly idle. I
one mine alone, which a month ago
was shipping 1,000 cars of coal a week
to the seaboard, Is now shipping 2'ii a

Five Members of the Society Known us
the Rising Generation Cu light in tho
Act of Burglarizing a Butcher Shbp.
They Are Captured by the Police,
Five members of the "Rising Gener
ation," of Dodgctown, an organization
that seems to have taken up the thread
snapped -tiff by the disruption of the
"Dead Line" gang, of that place, were
arrested at 11:15 last night, after hav
ing attempted to burglarize the butchel
shop of Patrick McNally, on Fourth
street. Their names are, John Dun
leavy, William Dunn, Michael Cogglns.
John Brown and Mart Lavelle. Their
ages run between 18 and 20.
About 10:30 o'clock Patrolmen Pal
mer and Haag were attracted to Fourth
street by sounds that resembled the
crashing of window glass. They found
the window of a store kept by a Jewish
proprietor broken with cobble stones,
und could see the outlines of the mis
creants as they disappeared Into a con
venient alley. The officers gave chase
but lost track o their game for the
time being. Three-quarters of an hour
later Mr. McNally notified them that
five young men hud strived to force an
entrance to IiIb Watcher shop through
the front windowO The window was
secured by a large Iron screen and one
corner of It was loose when Mr. Mc
Nally was aroused. The safe stood near
the window and thut was likely their
object of sjdress.
This time the officers, accompanied by
Mr. McNally, got on the proper trail
and their game was rounded up and
captured in an alley behind Waldron's
saloon. The burglars made no resist
ance and were taken to police head
quarters. The exploits of the "Dead Line" gang
are still clearly recollected.Its long his
tory of murders, highway robberies and
felonies of all description, is too fresh
in the public mind to bear repeating.
When, at last, the gang broke up, its
members either meeting violent death,
or those that lived going to jail for long
terms of Imprisonment, the younger
strata banded together ond for the past
year and a half its record has been lif
line with the history of its predecessor.
The prisoners tukeu last night are

a gold watch for J2.50 and Just for good
