The Result.
The following is from the pen of “Invisi
ble"—11 contributor to the Washington Ci'y
Sunday Gazette a Republican paper that fa
vored the election of Billy Mahone :
“To say that I, in common with many
millions of Americans, was profoundly as
I tonished at the genera result of the elec
tions last Tue-d ty is to state what everybody
or almost everybody, has felt. There were
differences of opinion, of course, as to tie
magnitude of the victory or the defeat in
each of the States, but very few persons—
none that l know—believed that the Dem
ocrats would carry Ohio and Iowa, while
there was a general b< lief on the part ot
Republicans, supplemented by a fear enter
1 mined by thousands of Democrats, that .Ma
hone would carry Virginia bv a heavy nui
i jority. The absolute defeat of Foraker in
: Ohio, however, was not dreamed of by eith
er party, greatly reduced though his major
ily might be, as many Republic.it s feared,
as many Democrats hoped. But that he
would be “snowed under” by the decisive
1 majority of 13,000, and that a Democratic
| Legislature would be chosen was s meihing
that even the imagination of a Tuscarawas
COUVKV Iirvrr umcrnru.
Still inure improbable was the idea that
1 Iowa would be carried by the Democrats
The latter themselves, in the wildest fanta
sies induced by smuggled whisky, never fan
cied they could carry that State. Had they
believed such a thing even possible they
would have “humped” themselves and swept
theState, Legislature and all. like a cycb ne
To sum up: Massachusetts is kept in tin
Republican column by the slightest of plur
alities. It was a I’yrrhic victory for Repub
licHiiism there. We can imagine t! e
ghost of blurt’ old John Andrew, as I e
remembered the 70,OIK) or HO.000 major
ities he used to roll up, tumiifr uneasily
in bis grave and swearing as deeply a» a
Puritan ghost’s conscience would allow
him at the decay and decline of thcG.O. 1*
West of the Hudson the Republican de
, feat was complete. New ^«»rk was over
whelmingly Detiiocratic. New Jersey wen'
back t«< the ancient faith with a bound
Pennsylvania stood firm, but douotless it
was because the Democrats t ere didn’t tr\
to do ativtliing. Ohio and I own astonished
everywhere. There are no Deni ernts in
Nebraska, constquently the Republican*
bad a one-sided tight there.
In the South the triumph of the “Unter
rifled” was equally as great. In Man land
the only consolation the Republicans find i*
that they carried Prince George's county b
a small majority. Virginia roll d up tin
largest Democratic majority she ever gave,
and henceforth is a* “solid a* Mississippi
or Mis»oiiri, in which States there are no
Republicans to make any fight. I be Deni
ucratie victory is complete. To put it in
another form, the Republican deft at is
i crushing.

said the cap'n breaking in on a spirited
discussion touching the best quality of oil
for binnacle lamps. It is needless to say
that earthquakes had not been mentioned
or even thought of by any one present
except the cap’n himself. But it the
cap’n sail! earthquakes why earthquakes
it was, and the sailors placed themselves
in convenient listening attitudes.
“Was you there, cap’u ?” asked the lub

“How old a man are you, cap’n ?”
“Forty-two on my last birthday,” re

would pipe down on this story at once.

“Don’t lie too hard on the poor cu p.

“That’s a fact,” said the captain,some*
' wluit mollified ; “but I do get water log*
j ged laying up alongside of such unita
sonable folks, hut I reckon I’ll have to
.land it. Now, if somebody will tell me
what I was talking about I’ll get under
way again.”
“Earthquakes!” shouted the sailors.
“Si it was,” said tlie cap’n, again re
suming his reminiscent expression. “TI e
desperate disaster of which I spoke took
p'ace at six hells on the night of Oct. 1.8.
17 4(». The people were first turned < ui
bv a tremendous shock and a low ruin
hling n i*e like thunder. The first seis
mic * I akc was followed by 200 lighter
j rks lasting over a period of iwciity-foui
hours. Deep, booming noises came Iron
iiir out under the sen, and the upheaval
kept on until they pumped up a great ti
lal wave eighty tcet high. ( alluo wa
built on a rising coast, with the lowei
portion of the town clustered al ng th<
locks. Like all seaport towns this wa
the most thickly populated part. W hei
the big wave rolled in on shore it was ac
compound by a powerful shock which
broke off the lower edge of the city. Am
when the wave retreated it carried lh<
town and 18,000 people with it down int.
ihe sea.
“I’m now corning to the most curiou*
incident of that terrible night,” continued
the cap’n. “Before the trouble the liar
bor was clear, bu now an island nu un
min 400 feet high rears its head near tin
northern shore of the harbor. A light
house graces the top of the island, which
is down on the map a- San Lorenza. and
one of the prettiest and most romantic ot
the many Peruvian legends is told in con
nection with the naming of the island.
It was named after San Lorenza, the mat
who discovered the mountain, and is ni
intensely interesting story when told in
; Spanish. I heard it in that language
myself, hut as none of you fellows under
stand Spanish I'll tell it in English.
“Mr. Lorenza, or San, as they called
him for short, was a fisherman, and w§ut
out to sea every night in his trail Peru
vian J>aik to fish lor hake and haddock,
flic native fisherman lias a light -kitr or
canoe in which he plies his railing and
one paddle. He aits on his knees in the
i -.tern of the boat and fi-lies with a line
1 2l>0 feet long, ti ing his front finger tor a
pole. On the fatal night of Oct. 28 San
had just got a bite when he heard the
ominous rumble. Before he could either
land the fish or grab bis puddle be fell
himself going up into the air. It was so
.lark that .can couldn’t see anything, so
clutched both gunwales of his l*oat and
hung on. Presently there came another
jerk, and the fisherman went up a few
feet more.
The unhappy man was too frightened
, to move, so he sit there,' going up by
I jerks, until daylight. Then San peered
■ | over the edge of his boat and t iund him
I self slicking on top of a mountain -PHJ
feet in itie air. The [n*ak was so sharp
that it pierced t lie I ml tom of hi* boat and
. ; suck up four feet above Satis head. He
-till hung on to Ids ti*li line, which had
a horse mackerel dangling front the book
dead, halfway down the mountain. Tin
survivors discovered Mu in the tnomiuf
and hat is the beautiful legend of bow
-uo Lorenza got its name.”
“How did they get Lorenza down of
I ihe mountain? asked the iubl»er.
“I was just going to telt that,” said tin
rap u in an angry tone, “but as you seem
to be in sui b a devilish hurry I’ll let you
wait awhile.” And the crusty old sailor
walked away.
