They are not there.
It is a notorious fact that men were
brought here to vote the Democratic 3
ticket who do not live here and never
did. It in equally well known that challenges
from the Republican side went
for nothing?Democratic ballots were rewived

as freely as Republican ballots have .
since been thrown out by the Demo- T
cratic County Commissioners.
This sort of work, ably supported by t
the intimidating United States Deputy

Church. The church was absolutely
without lloral or other decorations, and
the awning stretched across the side*

any unusual ceremony. No cards or
formal invitations had been issued;
there were no best men or bridesmaids,
an?l the entire service was charactering
l?y extreme simplicity.

ealiinet meeting was ended at an early
hour, so ;is to permit the members to bo
Present at the service, aud they were in
twai cases accompanied by their wives.
The President and Mis. Cleveland entered
the church just before 2 o'clock

ho figures of yesterday. 'All the returns
tow at hand, from Democratic aa well ^
s Republican sources, including every Vo
ounty in tho State, show that doff has
icon elected Governor by over !J00 ma- Kj
ority. Tli
It is not probable that these figures
vill bo materially reduced by tho mero
orrection of errors or the recount now
n progress. Fraud is the only hope of
lie Democratic leaders. General Gofi' {ft
vill contend to the bitter end for his j!*

The good news conies from the Third su
fougressional District that the election w!
if McGinnis, Republican, is generally ^
loneeded. The process of counting out <H?
las been going oti in the Fourth as well uii
is the First, the aim being to give the Jjj!
democratic nominees the certificates at oti

Ukinson's majority, but the recount has
mly begun in Wetzel and is not finishid
in Ohio, which counties are relied on A1
o count Atkinson out. Theso two
ountics have been held back to seo
low much was required to overcome A t- Fi
cinson's majority. Mr. Atkinson will wi
;et his seat. The work that has been ea
ping on sinco he was elected will not eg

esentatives. a i
The Legislature is Democratic by one yj\

elected to the IIouso of Delegates from jf
Logan county, with ono Republican and
our Democrats in tho field, will not jj,
k'oto for the re-election of Sonator Jj[
Kenna. Tho Senate is Republican. Tho Mi
failure to secure the Legislature on joint

In some districts which were expected ul

AKKCinbly Yesterday,
Indianapolis, Nov. 15.?The delegate
and others who are iu attendence o
the twelfth General Assembly of tli
Knights of Labor have settled down t
work, and the time away from tho eoi
vention is largely devoted to committe
woik. Still much gossip is indulged i
regarding the probable outcome of th
meeting, both as regards the election (
officers and as to th? future success o
failure of the order.
Two years ago General Master Wort
man x uwuuny uiiuuuutcu uiuv uu nn
beginning his lost term of oillce, and c
the Minneapolis convention last year li
repeated the statement. In view c
these declarations he might be though
to be out of the fight, but such is not be
lieved to bo the case by many. Iusteai
of repeating his former plain refusals t<
continue to serve, he now simply refuse!
to speak, and this fact is considered ai
| evidence of willingness to accept onci
: more. The election of othor officers de
pends on Powderly's decision and tin
action of the General Assembly 21s to tin
* reduction of the force.
Ah has several times been remarket
! in these dispatches much depends 01
the action of the convention whethei
the order will thrive or dwindle away.
While many are anxious about th(
outcome, they express n firm belief in
the long life and great prosperity of tin
organization. Others, and thero art
i many oi tuem noi ueiegM.es, are reauy
; firm in tho opinion that these are the
last days of what one of them calls "n
gigantic confidence game." Theso hitj
ter think that the overthrow of Powderly
and his associates in the Geucral Executive
Board is essential to the good oi
the order, and some of them assert that
an investigation of the inside-working*
at tho general offices will reveal an astonishing
state of affairs. They claim that
the General Executive Board have been
living at tho expense of, and not in the
interest of the working classes and
promise a big sensation before tho General
Assembly adjourns.
It is claimed by those who profess to
be informed of the facts, that the cause
of delay in Powderly's report was that
lie had given ex-Secretary Litchman a
severe handling and that Litchman in
his report had returned the attack with
The two were finally brought togetheraud
the matter amicably arranged,
and the dolay has been caused by the
reprinting of the report with tho "savage
part eliminated."
Harry J. Skeflington, of Cincinnati,
clainiB that the membership of District

inflated to allow two represents

to say so on the floor of the General
Assembly, but was over-ruled by Mr.
This mornings session was devoted tc
further reports and routine business.
There was time for but two reports bofore
adjournment at noon, these being
from Generul Master Workman Powderly
and oxSecretary Litchuian.
Mr. Powderly's report took two houre
of time and Mr. Litchuian followed foi
one hour aud twenty minutes.
Later in the afternoon Air. Powderly'e
report was given to the press. It begins
as follows:
To the OJflecri and Members of the General Attemblyi
For nineteen .years the order of the
Knights of Labor has maintained an existence
in the face of circumstances the
most discouraging and despairing, struggling
forward in its infancy, beneath c
veil of secrecy. It met with opposition
from those in whoso behalf it contended.
Later on it faced the world, as the advocate
of justice for the poor, and found
all who were enemies of the oppressed
arrayed against it. Iu all of these
years it has had to bear the
taunts and insults of many whose
interests it served. Since the adoption
of the declaration of principles ten
years ago this order hus had the oj>po1
sition of all who despised those principles,
bnt this year hus been the most
trying aud discouraging to those who
' Wished to see the hurmouious blending
1 ol all classes of workers beneath tin
! shield of Knighthood. Many catiset
combined to reduce the number of thosi
who swore allegietice to the principle*
of tho Knights of Labor.
The story so often circulated and sc
wonderfully magnified of the extrava
. gance of the general olllcers frightened
many, and they stood still until this ses
sion would ussemble. In tho ranki
were men whose love of self predomiun
| ted, whose selfish desires could not b?
suppressed for the common weal, ant
[ on no occasion would they consent t<
" sink self for tho good of all
, Tho oft-told story of their griov
' auces sickened and drove mun)
from the order. With no Executivi
Board whoso members were not in liar
? mony with each other who traveled frou
place to place denouncing their fellov
officers and condemning actions tha
they were not responsible for, it cotili
not bo wandered at that wo hp.ve lost it
? numbers. Tho uuwise strikes wliicl
I were entered upon aguinst tho laws an<
principles of the Knights of l^abo;
) swept thousands of our member
j into poverty and forced then
from tho order. Add to all o
! these causes the catntiaign which hai
. just closed in the United States, ii
which members and assemblies wort
pitted against each otlief- iu a question
which never was made apart of tin
1 declaration of principles und on whicl
they could very well afford to diffei
without differing with any point os ir
the laws or rule of tho order, and wt
1 wonder, not that there has been a fallinj
off, but that we have passed through tin
" crucial test, with the ranks unbrokei
1 as wo find them to-day."

t thinks the financial affairs are inlruste<

X agement of tho finances. Our power ha
teen divided in tho past and it ha
worked injury to us. Where the man

and confusion.
