EDWARD BCC1X. EJitor and Proprietor. EDKESDAT NOTEHBEK1M- The Prohibition vote of the Slate as cast for Spangler is 15.04S. Official returns from all the counties of the State show Quay's plurality to be 43,516. The enactment of a National bankrupt law will beotrongly press ed uyon the coming Congress- Serua has declared war against Bulgaria, and slight ekirmifbinn be tween the out-posts of the belliger ent armies has occurred. It is announced that Doctor A niericus Vefpucius Enfield, of Bed ford, is a candidate for Marshal of the Western District of Penn'a. The Republican majority in the State on the local tickets is o3,8fJ5, or 12 379 more than the splendid majority given to Colonel Quay. The C'oiKwrciol still faintly in meU that it if a Republican journal. If it is, thf;n its )Kilitical creed con Htruins it to love it taeniies and bate its friends. Riel, the Canadian half-breed reb el, was hanged at Regina, N. W. T., on Monday morning last. Our neighbors across the lakes believe that treason fchould be punished. Ex -I". S. Sekatok Shakos died at his Palace Hotel, in San Francisco, on Friday last. His principal repu tation was founded on bis wealth, which is computed at ? 10,000,000. A Urrible fire last week destroyed the fiiirti-t portion of the city of Galveston. Over sixty blocks ol building were swept away. The Ions amounts to millions, and thou sandth of its citizens were left home- With both Democratic National and State Administrations in power, through the treachery of self-styled Republicans, it was just a "little vealy" to expect to turn the county over to the Democracy by the same means. Ir their foresight bad only been equal to their hindsight, the few se lect "Republicans" who thought they had "downed" old John Bar ron, would not now be gnashing their teeth over the failure" of their fr richer v. Tin: old fable of the envious toad that tried to swell itself up to the sire of the oi, and "busted," is viv idly recalled by the vanity of that "reliable Republican paper" which busted itself iu its effort to elect the Democratic candidate for Poor Di rector. Coxohess will convene in a couple of weeks, and then we will have a glimpge at Mr. Cleveland's policy, of which we have heard so much and n so little. The session will be an important one, and a high old time among the Democracy is an ticipated. Active hostilities have been com menced by the British against Bar man. The British forces have cross. d the trontier and are proceeding with all haste to capture Mandalay. King Thebaw threatens the total ex termination of all British residents within his kingdom. ' The Meyersdale Comwrcuil, which kicked out of the traces, knocked in the dashboard, and with out reason attempted the defeat of the Republican county ticket, will have a good time thinking it over. In the meantime the Republican voters will be thinking. The lesson of the utility of one vote is again enforced by the elec tion of a Democratic candidate for Director of the Poor, in Fayette county. The Republican candidate voted for his competitor, the Dem orrat voted for himself, and that vote gave him a majority of one,and secured his election. The 'omm rriol belongs to that class who call themselves Republi cans, but seize every opportunity to asist the Democrats. It attempted t cheat and betray the Republicans of the whole county at the late elec tion, and for this efleoce the entire party should now insist upon pun ishing it. Treason should be made odious. 0.e gratifying feature of the result in tLis county is tbe true light in which it sizes up the conceited Cam turrr.'al. Jt claimed before the elec tion that it Lad Barron beaten, and that he would cot carry five town ship in the countv. The simple truth u that its support injured rhileon. ad "Old John Earron" mopped tbe ground with it aul its deluded follower. A faith curer near Pittsburg has xfivea notice that he sill not pray for r anoint another man, aUss the latter promises faithfully that he will not fo around telling people he it not cured. Somerset county would be a capital field for this pentiettian to labor in just now. We will guarantee that the diciples of he t otfurreinl who had faith in its lower to elect Fhilson, will declare thesurielve eared of that belief. Th KKst i something very amusing m well as pitiable in the Cow i-iul't con6tant8Beverationa that it is Republican journal A few brief daya ago it was spitting out the ven om of its heart against Barron, and cai'ing upon the voters U send to it for "Paulson stickers." In its pres- ent predicament it reminds us f i fellow who was caught witn his i arms full of bis neighbor's fat pul-1 leu. "Are these your chickens?") said the detected culprit Yes! j "Well, take them then ain't it 7" that's fair, Col Qcay'r superb majority for Stat Treasurer has melted the ! newspaper scribblers into an attempt ' to ritart a boom for him as a candi date for U. S. Senator. The Colonel , has intimated no desire of the kind, and the whole thing originates with irresponsible outside parties. If he wants to be Senator he will doubt less announce the fact himself, as he did his candidacy for Treasurer, and if he is the choice of the Legis lature he will be elected. TheSen atorship is not a question at present, and Colonel Quay's candidacy is purely imaginary. It is most amusing to read the many reasons assigned by the Mug wump and other journals of New York for the defeat of Davenport. It is evident that he did not receive the heavy Irish vote that was cap t j for Mr. Blaine, and as the Irixh World, that brought over many votes to Blaine, advised its readers to vote for Hill, stating that it was still Re pnblican and wanted Irishmen to remain in the party of protection .. iKof rtmrcririnrt hurl fillpn 5 ntn , . , , e j it ! wa9 a larS?e number of passengers the .bands of the free trade Mug-jon tbe trailli SDd the scene imme- wu trips and mut be defeated, it 'diutely following the accident was looks as if not much search was re-; one of wildest coufussioc.

Tax laws are never popular and always create more or less grumbling, but when to this is added the inquisitorial nature of the act, which requires that a sworn in ventory of each citizen's entire per sonal estate shall be laid open for public inspection, its unpopularity is intensified. Apart from this un pleasant feature, however, is tbe fact that there is not much chance for thrifty taxpayers to get in any crook ed work, and as all property must be returned for assessment under oath, not much will escape taxation, as it did under the old law, and the rate per cent, can be made propor tionately lower. We are not dis posed, however, as are some of our contemporaries, to utterly condemn this law. It is erode and needs amendment in many of its features, but taxpayers should remember that the State deals very gently with them in the exercise of its taxing powers. Farms and other real es tate are exempt from taxation, and the growing expenses of the State required that additional revenue be raised by this or by some otiier means. But this necessity for in creased revenues arises largely from the lavish liberality with which the people's money has been voted to this, that, and other public institu tions and to themselves, by our leg islators. If this reckless expendi ture of pbblic mnbfy was stopped, and a generous but wise eoonomy exercised in making appropriations, there would be no necessity for in creased taxation, and if the last Leg islature bad complied with the gen eral demand (or higher licenses the additional revenue expected to be raised by this law could have been collected from that source.

Collector Dowliu, in speaking of the accident said : '"It is hard to say just what caused the train to leave the track. My own private opinion is that the great speed at which the engine attempted to round the curve was the cause of the accident. The sleeper seemed to leave the rail first It swung around on the ties lor an instant and then toppled over and rolled into the river. Had there been an obstruction ou the track, or had the switch been misplaced, tiie engine would, 1 thiuk, have been the first to leave the track. No, I was not injured to amount to any thing, but 1 got a good ducking. I was in water np to my neck, and I was kept pretty buey for a time getting myself out." One of the officials of the road stated that there was undoubtedly something the matter with the switch, as he does not think that the train was going fast enough to cause it to leave the track of iu own accord. Tbe track in the vicinity of Blue Stone Quarry is as fine as any piece of track on the road. Tbe train was one which had been made especially for running fast. The theory of the officials of the road is that the switch, which is just at the beginning of the curve, had been left open, causing the train to leave the rails and bump along on the ties until going arouud the curve, the rear cars were thrown over t be em bankment. The matter will be thor oughly investigated by the com pany. 81x PrlHonera Orerpower the Sheriff Wife and Escape from the Beaver Prison. Beavkk, Ia., JSoixnit-er 12.

'oAIiTrSTOX, TKXA8.BAVAGKO BT i AN AWPCIj FIRE. n.ircd. or r-; .r the Rjch maa fonreatoriue Mowinweatern Metro poll Homeleaa la tho Midst or Rata Galveston, Nov. 13. At 145 o'clock this morning the most de structive fire in the history of Gal veston broke oat in a small foundry and car repairing shop on the north side of Avenue A, known as the "Strand." between Sixteenth and Fifteenth streets. A fierce gale from .1 l 1,1 : U a lima the north was blowing at tbe time, and the flames spread with light ning rapidity to both of the adjoin ing buildings, one being a grocery store and the other a humble dwel ling. In a twinkling the long, fiery tongues bud crossed the street, and two more dwellings were in flames, the inmates barely escaped with their lives. At this moment the fire department got two streams going, but tbey were of no avail. The heat became so intense that the fire men had to abandon their positions, snd the wind rose and earned myr iads of spark to tbe premises east of Avenue A. A general alarm was sounded. In half an hour two blocks were burning fiercely ,and by 3 o'clock every one saw that a great coiifWraiioD was upon the city. At 3.30 the fire had leaped three blocks distant from its starting point, but in a perfectly straight line, being confined to tbe bhicks bounded by Sixteenth aud Seven teenth streets. About four o'clock the fire began to spread to the east and the west of Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets, the wind rose high to a eale, and pandemonium reigned. For a time it seemed as though the entire eas tern half of the city was doomed. The fire spread rapidly to the south west, licking up the blocks of ele gant residences hastily abandoned by their inmates. By five o'clock it had reached Broadway, which threads the center of the ir-land, running east and weft At 7 o'clock the wind gave signs of dying away and shortly it began to shift, then to decrease, until by 8 o'clock only a fair breeze was blowing. But by this time tbe fire had eaten its way to Avenue O, and at 9.30 o'clock was within two blocks of the Gulf. At 11:20 the fire reached the beach which is a distance of about a mile and a half from where it started. In some places tbe path of the fire is seven blocks in depth. lhe island at that point le blocks, or one mile and a quarter wide. The fire started on the north side of Avenue A, better known as as the Strand, which is one block from the Bay, and it stopped within two hlocka of the Gulf. Sixteenth street is 9 blocks west of the extreme in hahitable end of the inland, the first resident street being Sixth. From Avenue A to D the fire wan cou fined to the strip bounded on the east by Sixteenth street. The business part of the city begins at Twentieth street and runs west 10 squares. This outline locates the fire, which began to spread rapidly after it bad passed Avenue D. By this timeit had reached Aven ue J, on Broadway, it was sweeping nearly three blocks in width from the west side of Seventeenth street to the east side of Fourteenth. About 501) houses were burned, which were! occupied bv fully 1,000 families From Avenue A to Avenue F for four squares the burned buildings were occupied almost entirely by the poorer class, and several families ! were crowded in single house in this strip. From Avenue E, how ever, the burned district includes the wealthiest and most fashionable portion of the city. One hundred elegantly furnished mansions are in ruins. Many of these residences had beautiful gardens attached to them, ant the moneyed loss does not rep resent over half their value. All manner of estimates are to be heard at this time. Tbe City Assessors says the taxable value of the dwel lings burned is $650,000. This makes the actual value ot tbe pro perty $1,500,000, which perhaps represents the loss in money. The scene during the progress of the fire was Bimply frightful. lhe wind rose to a screaming gale in the vicinity of the fire and swept through the burning belt in terrible swirls, carrying millions of cinders high up in the air and rainine them down a mile distant over tbe wood en city and its pnnic-siricken inbab Hants. The entire east end of the city scarcely contains a dozen brick dwellings. All is wood Texas pine and it burned with an indescrib able fuxv. Five minutes after a bous bad fiaub; it would be wrab- pen in on m gbty flame, and the centre of tbe burning pile gave out a white heat, while tte flaajQs on the edges were fitfully spitting high and far on every side. Some families saved a good deal of furniture, others are left with on ly tbs clothes ou their backs. The loss in appirral aqd personal prop erty can never be eetinuted and is not included in tbe previous esti mate. Tbe hotels are filled with home less people, and a citizen's commit tee is now at work apportioning fam cf t? rooms and premises vacated for their me. JEvery dray and other vehicle in the oily is a work carry ing the strewn bedding, furniture and pictures to secure places. The best posted citizens estimate the loss at $2,000,000. Some put it st $2,600,000. senator ManTon) 1'oiversity Sas Francisco, Nov. 10.
