Thru* heavy frosts occurred lust week?
the ilr?t tlecided frosts of tho season?
viz: on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
nights?ami tho woodsyesterday showed tho
elloctHof them, lho leaves are now not
only turned, but the dropping oIT process
is in full thle. We have seldom seen so
great Rcliunife wrought in a few days. The
lon-hts will soon bo full of dOad leaves.
Thfse froets, however, \vero timely. Na
turo very Kiuuiy nuiu uhck until int) laie
com was entirely ready. Jor them?In fact
needed lliem. The consequence is Hint a
well matured crop is now tinrdcnluB and
drying i" excellent condition. The corn
could not have been luoro favored than It
litis liei'ii tills fall, and (lie yield |g not only
lnrv-u liut tlic quality will grade high. Not
only lias tlic corn been benefited by these
fro?t?, tint also tho growing wheat. The
lull towing wan coming forward too fast.
Many of (In) Held* looked as prccn and
rank In their growth as iu April, after a
favorable winter, and these cold nights
and heavy frosts have furnished a timely
cheek. 01 course tho lingering vegetables
til the season, sncli as tomatoes, arc now
cut limit, but in these days of canned
fruit no one need have Bpeciitl regrets on
that account. As showing the remarkable
diameter of the fall thus far our attention
was culled 011 Saturday to a bundi of juicy
Btnni lurries?the second crop of the Beasoii-iirowu
over in Belmont county. This
in not a usual occurrence in tills latitude,
unil we put it on record as one of the peculiarities
of this peculiar season.
Tlie weather still continues to be all that
the tanners could desire. Many of them
are luiuling wheat, potatoes and hay to tho
city. There were large deliveries of wheat
to the Pacific Mills here last week, the
street* at times being quite crowded with
teams. The price is one dollar per ISuahel.
The price seems to be generally satisfactory
to (lie farmors, although as compared with
the higher prices for the old crop it contrasts
unfavorably to the minds of some of
them. That it is generally satisfactory,
however, is shown by the increased acreage
sown this fall.' The farmers are followiagtheolil
rule, to bet on a winning card,
and wueat has been a winning card in this
region of late years.
Potatoes came in pretty freely last week,
and ns a rule they looked sound and were
oi ^twu bi/.c. muy buji an uii soria ui prices
from CO to 75 cents. While there is an
abundance of them they are not going
to be a drug o* the market, and the price
has a tendency to firmness.
The pasture ia still excellent in the
country, and hay and other feed is not being
trenched upon to any material extent.
The present prospect is that any amount of
hay will he for sale this winter. It is
. freely offered at this time and some large
consumers are supplying themselves at $10
per ton.
We congratulate our country readers on
the results of the year to them. It has
been u good year. As our old, eccentric
friend Ninian Ileal 1 expressed it on Saturday,
"the goose hangs high with us farmers."

I.eltrr From Mr. Mttnon of the KccomI
District?Uow lie I.ookii nt the lie
We presume that we violate no confidence
in giving the following extract from
a private letter received yesterday* at this
ollice from Mr. John W. Mason, of the Second
District, in regard to the present situation
of the result in his district:
' * * "1 have as yet seen no evidence
of any intention on the part of the Democrats
to act fraudulently as to the count,
yet 1 feel that whatever examination and
inquiry is necessary should be made as a
mutter of justice to my friends and to the
party. ' It now looks as though 1 may
1)0 beaten by a few votes?less than a
dozen. This seems too bad, when I might
juBt as well have hud 1,000 or more major
ity. The trouble was I could not get our
friends to see how 1 was to overcome 2,247
majority. In fact, I didn't see it very clearly
myself. The revolt in the ranks of! the
democrats was greater than even I supposed.
* * At least .'>',000 Republicans
remained away from the polls for no other
reason than "it's no use to vote?therejs no
chance of electing Mason." It was a very
reasonable conclusion on tlioir part I must
admit, and I lmve no fault to find with any
one." Yours truly,
Jons W. Mason.
This in a nharaHonstin lutler from Mr.
Mason, anil in keeping with all our correspondence
with him during the cauvass.
We can only say that lie does not seem to
foci iia bad over the result as do a multitude
of liis friends, who for the good of the cause
:w also for high regard and admiration of
Mr. Mason personally wished him success
We deplore the result as a loss to West
Virginia in the next Congress, where we
hit stir a that the good sense and weight
of general character on the part of Mr.
Mason would tell not only on belinlf of
wlmi legislation generally, but inure to the
bemV.'l of this State in particular.
Personally, this defeat is no great loss to
Mr. Mnson. The canvass and the result,
have served to bring a modest, capable
and serviceable an to his true place at
the front. It is seen now what capacity
Vlmd to impress the masses na he pursued
''is toilsome way among them .during lite
Hnlumw .r>!ini*noa ? {??. o? ot?nwii>!nf5rtn nf
candid and intelligent discussion, and in
this respect he luis performed a. scrvico1 for
sound views in politics that has never been
burpasacd in any ^campaign in the State.
Ab for Mr. Mason himself, ho is a man; who
has a future. The people now know him
us they never did before, and they , will not
ho slow hereafter to recognize his services
wl his merits. 1 '

Treasury, and speculation in regard t<
Judgo Folder's resignation litis ceased. Fo
these results there aro excellent reasons
If Judge Folder was assures! of Ills eleeiloi
as Governor ol New York,he would not re
sigu until tho necessity for hiu transfer fron
one station of responsibility to tlio other
As to tho sinking of New's name, the ex
plauntion ia lound in the simple fact tlm
tho sagacious people of tho country \vh<
aronuxiousfor the continued diiccesu o
our Unancial system, are averse .to beliey
ing that tlio Assistant Secretary will b<
promoted to Judge Folger'a pluce. The re
port succeeding the latter'a nomination for
Governor of New York, of his immediaU
appointment, waa a journalistic entcrpris*
designed to please Mr. New, w ho controli
the uppolntment'patronago of the Tressurj
Department, and whose favor is eovetei
in a certain (garter.
There seems to be a gun of malicious
ness in the rej>orts that originate in Wash
rngton', in regard to the alleged sayingi
and doioya oi Secretary Folger, aud thej
arc not only unwise but unkind.. Judgi
Folger never asserted that he would holt
his ollice until the end ot Tresident Ar
thur'a.tcriu, and. tlien' retire with him U
private life. His ability .wuDulaptabilitj
to the ollice he now hold?, and hlascruriu
lous care in transacting tho important bu
siness which demands his personal atten
tion, have won the confidence of mei
deeply interested in the construction o
law, and in official decisions which mus
seriously affect for goo?l or evil the mam
moth industries and labor interests of thi
country, and they would be better pleasei
if.heBhould hold permanent possession o
his office, if that result did not involve dis
aster to the Republican party in New York
It is a further exaggeration to say publu
sentiment at. the Capitol concedes the de
feat of Judgo Folger for Governor of New
York. There lis not the aliglitefit justitfca
(ion for attributing such an opinion to tin
Republicans in Washington of any grade
The nominees of the two parties are in tin
field, and the success of the Democratic
ticket can only be achieved by ,Republieai
votes. If the young man 'nominated*
the DemocialB will make a better Governo"
than Judge folger, his election is certainly
to be desiied; but aside from ttie individua
qualifications of the candidates, it Beema ti
be-established ;tbat the success of tin
Democrats would be unhealthy. Ihjiii
letter to lion. A. S. Draper, Chairman o
the Albany Republican County Commit
tee,/'Judge Volger demonstrates thi
clearly: "The Ohio election tool
place" on Tuesday, the 10th of thi
month. It resulted in a gain to tin
Democratic party of several Congresamei
for the nest Congress. At once there aros
a jubilant claim from the-.organs of tha
party that the next Ilouse of Kepresenta
tives would be.Democratic, ;Kow did busi
net-sand capital regard that claim, and thi
consequence of it if true? It is estimate!
from well founded data that on Wednes
day, the iltii of October, the day following
there was a shrinkage of values in the grea
properties of the country of over $10,000,
000. That shrinkage has been going oi
since." . v
v The defeat of Judge Folger is greatly de
sired by.the Democrats, and if a* sutlioien
number of Republicans assert their hostili
ty to him, it will be accomplished. Then
is no disaffection, however. It is not'th
place for the prevalence of prcjudi?
against a nominee.?If the fraternal flgh

' examining, became frequently engaged in

Mnlley read several publications of the
' case, while Blanche sat as if in deep
" thought, or in quiet observance of every3
thing going on, taking no heed of the couf
stant garoof those admitted into Ibe room,
\ Judge Patterson soon disposed of Mho
1 routine business of the"court and called
* the "one case" of the day. Q'be court
} room was cleared . of all not connected
f with the investigation, .aud then;jWalter
ana Blanche stepped from the Sergeant's
* room through the court room into the magistrate's
private chamber,where Clerk Jobu
} McKean took the allidavit of Walter
} Malley.. It consisted of a repetition of the
1 particulars of the case as 'published, and
* embraced the statements of Blanche Dougr

as to he scarcely "legible. lu answer to

' lion was set down tor Thursday.
B. Lawyer l.ogurt contends that so far as

Detectives caused the attendance in

1 at 148 Spring sireet, where Blanche occupied
a furnished, room when the alleged

that her testimony should be taken; but it

1 story is that llanley visited Blanche
almost daily, and that the latter repre?
sented him as being her brother-in-law.

ho picturesque in its surroundings and cj

if it were possible .for me to put.in'fHtli
metrical form the thoughts and eni
tions which it awakens, but the burdi
of years begin to rest heavily upj
me, ami 1 shrink from the effort of ban
ling such a theme. In spito of the e
deavors of the historian, more regardf
of the display of his rhetoric and sarcas
than historical accuracy and justice, tl
memory of NVilliam Penn is secure in i
grand outlines and unsullied,purity, ii
stands aud will forever stand with sagt
statesmen and philanthropists of whom tl

lived, anil though centuries in advance1
his contemporaries, slowly but surely ge:

disestablishment of the English Church,
receiving an unusual impetus at the pre

by auction of farm tools, implements ute:
site, under distraint, to recover the extr
ordinary tithes claimed by the church u
der a law long supposed to bo obsolete, bi
excited the utmost indignation among tl
ISngliBh farmers. At several recent/sal.
of this character the auctioneer and the
assistants, and also the intending purclia

farmers. Public meetings have been hel
in several counties, at which a resolutic

PirrsuviHiii, October 21.?This morning j>
no of the most liiucnloua counterfeiters ?
;io Secret Service olUcers cver got' "dead jj
) rights" *as taken to the Penitentiary, *
nd ho went with the oJlicer with a light fll
eart and joyous spirit. The fact is the tj
rlsoner, Gritllth Taylor, was enthusiastic t\
i his expressions of satisfaction at getting tl
niy two years when lie might have been
untenced to ten, or If ho had uono to trial JJ
erhaps twenty-live years would have been a
lio outcome, inasmuch as Secret Service s<
flicer D. McSweeny had all the evi* a
ence ready to convict him of the four ?
aunts in the indictment which was h
)und. Tavlor is a respectable looking mnn, I
. ith a wife and seven children, fie iB a sj
abinot maker and owned a second-hand hi
iruituro and repuir shop at 2700 Sarah cj
treet, South Side. His business wns good k
nd there was no palliating temptation for
im to engage in counterfeiting, lie is ro- a:
mrkably ingenious man, however, and h
(etective McSweeny thinks his "hobby" w
as to produce a perfect counterfeit, as jt
mch for the satisfaction ho .would derive d
oin success as because of the profit do- n
ivsble. Said he: "I wanted to get up a cl
alf dollar that would pass' unquestioned n
ver the counter of the United States al
rcasury." Ho had nearly attained this w
erfection, his product requirluK only to be ii
luted a few grams heavier to pass the
rdeal.
This morning a reporter called upon Mr. .
IcSweeny and was invited to examine
lie paraphernalia captured at Taylor's r.
hop and dwelling. It included every
riicle necessary to the manufacture of
ogus coin, oxceptthe lathe, this being too j'
onderous to hriug over to the United P
tates District Attorney's onice. Taylor .1
iiade all the appliances of his illegitimate
iuduslry." A copper mould was ex bibled
which was a perfect specimen of work, 0
?d worth, iu skilled labor, at least ?100. ai
wo. mil liny tools, one an old and discard- i?
d one, the other, an improvement, were
be product of this inranintm mnn'o nrt A
omplete electro-plating machine and no b
ml of odds and ends of tools were exhib- w
ted in the order of their useH in the procss
of counterfeiting. There were also ,
netals, antimony, bismuth, lead, arsenic
nd silver, and coins in various stages of v;
uanufacturc. The finished half-dollar
k-ould dcccive any persou not expert, un- bI
ess a very careful examination and com- ti
tarison were made. . ' tl
The production of a coin requires, first, ii
he moulding, then the lathe to trim down h
he edjje, then milling the edge, then elec- o:
roplating, and finally rubbing slightly with o:
ret powdered emery to take oil* the gto3#. ti
?2ie result is a half dollar that few persons tl
ven in banks would decline to take, it
lecret Service OHicer McSweeney selected tl
ne ot them, and remarked that" he could v<
;o dowu stairs to the stamp window and
ass it WJlftout ailhculty. The only loose ct
>oint about Taylor'# coinage is the weight. V
lie pieces lacking a few grains. They have G
genuine ring and an honest appearance,
nil the eleclroplttto is so heavy as to resist tl
lie acid tost. s(
It will readily be inferred that Taylor fr
?ns a dangerous man to beat large, and tl
hat ho will require close watching after w
is bIioi t term shall have expired. He b
ays, however, that he has been tauyht a c!
ipson and will employ himself at honest sc
ibor when discharged from the Peniten- ei
iarv. ''In that case," said Mr. McSweeny tt
3 him, "you should tell ine^here to find
lie frames for your plaster molds, and the tl
fly half dollars you were to have furnished tL
le." as
"All " iv..i i:-.i ? ... , ?i
jui ny?i> xttjriui icjuitu, "you go 10 *-'1
\y house anil over my bed in the wall you w
ill see a nail hole. Poke a wire into that tr
o)e." <I<
McSwceney followed {he direction and,
) and beholil, a little door flew open and cc
i this nook was found the articles. Taylor w
ad litted up this hiding place himself and ul
ad accomplished the work so skilfully sli
uit the bole could not have been discovred
unlets by carefully Bounding,the wall, w
he door was fasteueu by a spring and d(
aiming the. wire into the nail mark di
mched the spring?arid "open sesame.'.' Ri
Taylor had habitually scattered his apliances
in crooks and crannies and unex- pi
ected places in store, shop and dwelling,
/hen through with' a night's work this an
;attering and hiding followed regularly,
le explaiued to the officer the use of sev al
articles that had been found, but that Gi
)uld not be placed-intelligently. He
jnfessed, also, that he had been countersiting
during the last three vears. -.y
"What are the peculiarities and profits v
i the business?" inquired the reporter. *c
'..'"Usually counterfeiters work in gangs of ap
iree, for the reason that only in rare in- rai
ances a man is so ingenious as to be able tei
?get up the tools and understand all the ali
rocesses. Taylor is one of the 'rare' in- loi
ances.' He worked at night only, and TV

holesale at from'30 to JJ5 per cent of the t0
cc, dependiug oil the number bought. m,
ountiug his lnbor at a solid figure they f
ist twenty per cent of their face, so that v,a
3 got from 10 to 15 per cent for the risk. i.u
knowledge of this teaches the detective i-n
jw to measure/oueer' dealers. If a man
lould oiler meMmlves at -10 per cent I
iould know he is a jobber, though ho j
ight be a manufacturer; if the offer is 50 t?
>r cent I know for certain he is retailing, t..*
on see the counterfeiter wants to clear 0f
)tn 10 to 15 per cent over expenses inudiug
his own skilled labor, the jobber
mtshis prolit up to 50 per cent of the .*
ce, and the 'sliover' wants 50 per cent for i
a risky end of the business."

"Very difliciilt; moro especially when a Mr

Chapter 31, Code "WeBtVa., and the ro- El

But his Honor, Judge Jackson, held, tl

Dirni.iN, October'Jl.?Tliis city was to-di y
irown into u state of almost unpnralleKd
olitical excitement-by li letter printed
jnsplcuously in the Irish Time*, and retired'to
editorially lit n way suggesting
lat tho editor had satisfied himself of iho
nth of tho statement iimdo in tho letter,
his' letter ^positively occurs Parnell auil
10 parliamentary parly of having Svithout
arrant used nluety-eiglit thousand pounds
[ the Land League funds for their, own
rivato purposes, and circumstantially
lieges that Parnell and liis party,, after
aving tot through 'with this tremendous
ilsappropriation of funds collected from
oor Irish all over tho world, for another
urposo, bv collusion with tho managers of
iu Land League, attempted. to hush tho
latter up by dissolving the Laud League
ithouUuiy accounting.for its funds.
The Time* denounces (he act as one ((
le greatest pieces of jvoljtical villiany ev< r
erpetrated m modern times, and dees m t
eslUUeto suggest tho suspicion that the
arliamentary-party really ran the Land
eaguo as u false pretense under which to
jllect money which they never could have
btained as if it had been solicited for pure*
t political purposes, for \yhich it was really
jught aud used. The ti'imet concludes by
aruiug the Irish jieoplo against;political
icksters of all kiuds, and urges thetu to
resa for an accounting of the Land League
inds, 'hinting that if the Land League
mnagers be ever compelled to account for
icse funds an exposure will result, which
ill show that the villiany of the Purlin*
lentary party is even worse than heresugested.
The Dublin Daily J&prm referring to
jo fact that Parnell and the Parliamentary
arty bavo been allowed by the,managers
f the Land League to use ninety-eight
lousand pounds sterling of the League

very effort has been made by their friends

Ixprm says the impression made upon the
eople by the charges and by the absence
[ denials is very bad and growing hourly
oree; that tlfe minds of the people are
ecotning thoroughly poisoned against
'wraell and his party, and 1 hat unless
ime reaction is at once secured, the downdlof
Parnelland the Parliamentary party
1 Ireland is inevitable.
Dublin, October 21-?In conversation
ith the agent of the United Press Aeso'ation
this afternoon, Mr. Parnell, referng
to tlie attacks made upon him in the
nVi Times and Daily Ju-jirm in which it
was alleged that the Land League manners
bad misappropriated ninety-eight
lousand pounds of Land League funds,
q said there was not a word of truth in
?e assertion.' He believed that the attack
as made at the instigation of the CJlado'iie
government, whose purpoise was to
itlucnce tho coming elections against the
arnell party, knowing welt that. if the
and Leaguers maintained;or .increased
leir representation and were refused coni88ioiiH
they demanded, at the next Garment
tho same tactics of obstruction
ould bo pursued, aud the government
tereby placed in the same ridiculous nosi
on occupied during the last Parliament.
Iu referring to the charge that the money
Elected from the poor Irish all over the
orld was being used by the. leaders of the
eague for their own private, purposes, Mr.
nrnell said it .was well known that two
iparate collections were made,'" theffunds
'one beinj? devoted to the relief of evicted
rmers and tenant*, while those, of the
her were used to further the election of
lembera of Parliament pledged to'support
le Land League moveineut.Theunseruulous
use of money by the government in
arliamentary elections had, in some itiances,
rendered accessary heavy outvs
to insure a return of men pledged
the cause of of Ireland. The charges
ere probably based on an error of
ufounding payments for such proper and
iceaeary expenses .which were made in
:nct confirmation with the original con dims
under which the fund was created
ith sums applied toother and equally im?rtant
.objects comprised within another
auch of the Laud League programme,
i conclusion, Mr. Fa.ru ell said that 1'at;k
Egan, treasurer'of the Land Lengue,
Dtild shortly make a detailed statement
all receipts and expenditures of the jjimi
.'ague, which would show conclusively
e utterly unfounded character of the
arges.
London, October 22.?An anonymous
mmunication appeared in the. Irish* Tim*
it week, in which it was asserted by tlio
iter, who pretended to base his eonelu)n8
on the reports of the financial stand g
of the Ladies' Land League, as they
ipe&red from, time to . time in .Dublin
pera, and a comparison of.the same with
;an's statement to the National Conferee,
that there was an under estimate by
;an of the receipts for tho general fund/
the Land League.of X25,l)S(l, and:an
er estimate of legitimate expeasoj by
1,201, which were unaccounted for.
Justin McCarthy, M. P., and Michael
ivitt,'trustees of the Laud League fund,
d McCarthy, jr., ' acting as his father's
irctary, have, been interviewed. They
elare from:personal knowledge tlio auctions
are utterly unfounded and a rehash
the charges circulating among the land ds
ever since the Land League oruani/.od.
i three gentlemen point to the fact of the
n tic phint,'one who knows,' by which tho
tnmmucation is signed, na one used by
nold Forstcr in lib pamphlot at:!c
on the League, which like this
p, was first sent to those org nun
Ireland favorable to landlordism. Davitt,
rides scouting tho charges ca fulso, encd.
into an explanation withiegard to
tain paragraphs in the communication
regaru 10 tne accusation in the letter
,t tgan, though taking credit for relief, '
, afforded . through the Ladies Land
igue, did not give any account of the
ney received through it. Davitt'exins
that this was simply because Egan
1 not receive anything from that source;
,t every six pence collected by the ladies .
3 expended by the ladies, and they more*
>r, since March last, have drawn upon
an for ?50,000.' The Ladies' Lengud is
present preparing a balance- sheet
irely.independent oi.Kgan, which .will
nonstrate these facts without reference

Egan. Davitt states that when Parnell
t him on his liberation they had a con sation
in which Parnell Bpoice of. the
liies* l.eague beiuy somewhat profuse
expenditure. In regard to the charge
the letter that Parnell had stated
it the expenses of the organization
;1 never exceeded ?150 weekly,
itlier McCarthy lior Davitt remember
y such utterance by Tarnell. Davitt dores
that at the time of the greatest activof
the league, what with printing and
Icspread county orvaniwdions the exudes
must have been double at all i)oir.ts.
! savB the publication of the letter i;i tho
