Mr. Campbell was formerly editor oi

of the beat informed men in his State.
Nearly a year ago, in an interview
which was published in this paper, he
toll me that (Jen. GofT would be tin
Republican candidate for Governor thii
fall ari'l that he would be elected. He
also -aid that the Republicans would
carry three of the four Congressional
district* of the State and have a majority
<m ballot in the Legislature.
'.Mr. Campbell's political forecast was a
singularly correct one. The Republicans
have ected GoiT. carried three of
the Congressional Districts, and if the
fraudulent votes that were cast in a precinct
of Wetzel county are thrown nut
tiiev will have a majority on joint ballot
in ile* legislature, arul thus choose a
raited States Senator.
Atkinson, in the Wheeling District,
will have to get his seat by means of a
contest, but there is no doubt that it
will be given him, as ho was fairly
elected, and there will he an abundance
of proof to show that the apparent
majority cast for his opponent was

purpose of making a change when the

Might years ago West Virginia gave
Gen. Hancock a majority of 11,000. Four
years ng" Cleveland received a majority
of about 4.000, two years ago a Change of
lwMtlian 100 lnllot.s in the popular vote
would have given the Republicans control
of the Legislature; thin year the liepublicans
actually swept the State and
elected not only a Governor and Legislature
but three out of four Congressmen.

seems to be conceded that West Virginia
is to witness a contest over the election
of Governor, and perhaps over all the
it may be well to state how the contest
is to lie carried on and determined. The
contestant must give notice, witli specifications
and aflidavits, to the i?ersou
whose election is contested, within sixty
days alter the election, and within thirty
lays after the service of such noiico the
return notice to tho contest must be
given. The parties shall finish taking

In the case of n contested election for
Governor the petition of the contestant

a joint committee of the two houses ol
the legislature for examination and report.
This committee consists of two
Senators elected by the Senate by ballot
and three members of the House
clected by the House in the same manner.
The contest is determined by the
Legislature, both houses sitting iu joint

President of the .Senate presiding. At!

TUB BKOOKOVEK AFFIDAVIT.
Mr. Ilrookover Expiiiina the Matter?lie
Stick* to IIU Flint Statement.
To the Editor of the InldHgencer.
Sir:?In view of the proportions asI
sutned by the affidavit matter and in justice
to myself and a truth-loving people, 11
deem an explanation necessary. Theaffi-i
r davit published over my signature in the
Intelligencer of December 1st was
correct with the exception of a single
remark. When Mr. Hart asked me if
there might possibly have been more
than two tickets scratched I told hitn
t there might have been others, but I did
not remember seeing them. As the
, matter was ilxed up in haste I do not
? remember seeing this remark in said
statement. I merely made this remark
to Robertson at Moundsville, and he
, communicated the same to the Itojisicr
. by telephone in mv hearing, after which
the editor asked him to have me sworn
to it, winch I did. A copy of this last
1 affidavit is in Robertson's ofQce. Let me
assure your readers that I had not the
f remotest idea of retracting anything I
, said in the first statement, because I
' said all contained therein and only intended
this uilidavit published in the
Register to fill up the vacancy left in the
, other. I have no doubt Mr. Hart will
I remember my using the language, as
also my wife and Mr. Snodgrass.
? Please give the above space in your
i paper. I have no ax to grind nor favors
to ask, as bas been suspicioned. I send
a copy of the above to the litjusUr.
Yours for truth,

"Washington, Dec. 13.?Mr. Butter- th
worth, of Ohio, has introduced for refer- I*1
ence the following joint resglution au- f0,
thorizing the President to negotiate with w<
reference to the unity uud assimilation
Vvith the United States of the Dominion
of Canada, or of one or more of the
provinces thereof: to
WHKfiEAs, The citizens of tho Domin- of]
ion of Canada are one with us in race, afl
lineage-, history ami tradition; and
whereas, the resources of the two conn- wl
tries supplement each other and the ret
arteries of commerce, both natural and th
artificial, areso interlocked and mutually co
dependent upon each other that they an
ought to constitute a single system, to he mi
one and inseperahly; and an
Whkkkas, The commercial relations ele
between the United States and the Do- Ui
minion of Canada are, and have been,
strained and unnaturally Cramped, and, bu
in a measure, paralyzed, owing to the da;
inability of the two governments to establish
such a system of international
trade and commerce between them as is An
essential to meet the requirements of t
the situation; and i
Wiikbkas, The conditions and rela- i
tions before referred to, as also the ge- ?,
ography of the two countries suggest the
miDouularitv of a iust and permanent a
settlement of the controversies pertain- adt
ing to the fisheries, boundaries, and jat
transcontinental trade, except by blend- ,
ing of efleets, under oue governmental
system, aud point logically to tbe neces- **??
sity aud probability of a unity and assiiuilation
. between the two nations un- *co
4er one government; and pl,,i
Wiikkkam, The bonds of sympathy S
resulting from kinship, race, language, It
traditiou and substantial identity of hai
Governmental systems, together with a the
community ot interests, based upou am
commerce and its aids and agencies are lati
of such character that such uuion and of
assimilation is being discussed and qui
favorably considered by the citizens of
both nations; and inasmuch as it is 1
believed that its early consummation
would be of great advantage to all the neJ
citizens and subjects of the two eoun- gr?
tries, provided the same can be attained ne,
in a manner consistent alike with the wjj
honor and dignity of the United States
and Great Britain and the Dominion of j?n
Canada; therefore, with a view to aid in vt!,
the consummation of what is hereiu uo,
before suggested, be it ttii
Jieaolcta, By the Senate and House of ter
Representatives of the Uuited States in
Congress assembled, that the President S(e
be, and he is hereby authorized and empowered,
to invite negotiations looking
to the assimilation and uuity of the
people of the Dominion of Canada aud
the United States under one Government,
such unity and assimilation to be ]

and the assumption by the United

thereof, and such other equitable terms
and conditions as justice to the high con- ?.n

llmlved, further, That with a view to 10
such negotiation, the President invite ,:01
the appointment of Commissioners by Pai

wisdom and expediency of settling and

Senate resumed consideration of the tar- de

being the nuiendinent ottered by Mr. en
Coke?to admit cotton ties, etc., at the tio
rate of 35 percent, ad valorem. .Shortly dif
afterward .Mr. Kiddleberger objected to Cal
tho displacement of morning busi- be
ness," and said that advantage had been ye
taken of "absenteeism, occasioned by as
the business of the Senate." an
Mr. Vance criticised the Senate sub- no
stituto and declared that it was arranged set
without the slightest regard on the iaco an
of the earth to those interests of the ag- wl
riculturai classes. wn
At this point Mr. liiddlebcrger ro9e to fac
a point of order. ~ cai
Mr. Vance?I do not care what the agi
Senator from Virginia rises to; I decline yo
to bo interrupted. I hope ho will not an
be permitted to interrupt me any more. Hj
The presiding officer (Mr. Berry in the H<
chair)?The Senator from Virginia will A|
state his point of order. Nt
Mr. ttiddleberger?I will do so when ku
the Senator trom North Carolina (Mr. jju
Vance) takes his seat. ini
The presiding officer again required
Mr. Riddleberger to state his point of Jo
order, but the Senator from Virginia in- >1]
sisted that the rules required a Senator to t-x
takehisseat when anotiier Senator rose att
to a point of order. ^ Tii
Finally as Mr. Vance retained his ler
standing position, and as Mr. Kiddle- in
border presisted in his demand, the pre- jci
siding omcer ruieu uiai me oenaor an
from Virginia was out of order ami thut so<
i the Senator from North Carolina had the Mi
floor. . Or
"That," said Mr. Riddleberger, "is be- sei
cause the Senator from Arkansas (Mr. wt
Berry) does not know any better." nu
"The Senator from \ irginia is again dn
out of order," the presiding officer do- an
dared, "and it is a question for the Sen- ch
ate to determine as to its correction."
At this point Mr. Ingalis resumed the ca
chuir and with a sharp rap of the gavel, elt
recognized the Senator from North Car- de
olina. . re:
Mr. Vance had not proceeded far in th
his argument when a point of order mi
was again raised by Mr. Riddleberger. qu
The presiding ofQcer (Mr, Ingalis) in
I nuL'ixt Air. VnnrnU1 miliumuntil the noiut ?n
of order should be suited. uj
"And tako bis seat," interrupted Mr. pi
Riddleberger. av
"The cliuir will attend to the enforco- tb
ment'of tbe rules of order," said the pre- oc
siding officer in a tone of rebuke. "The so
Senator from Virginia will state his point ar
ol order." ca
Mr. Kiddleberger didn't persist much ail
further, but stated his j)oint of order to be
the effect that the morniug business had H
not been gone through with. The pre- hi
siding officer stateTl that the point was m
pot well taken and directed the Senator
from Virginia to take his seat.
Mr. RutdUsbergur, however, did not
comply with the order, but persisted in D
his objection. Pi
"If the Senator from Virginia does \\
not take his seat," said the presiding tfc
Beer in a severe and resolute manner,
he chair will call on the executive olliir
of the Senate to enforce its rules."
There was no further contest, ami Mr.
iddleberger, with an air of profound
sgust. retired to a seat on one of the i
ar sofas. j

The trouble was, lie said, the com*

Itud liven if Unintendal.
Indianapolis, Ind., Dee. 13.?The.
people of Indianapolis hnd several opportunities
to-day to get u good look at
the Republican tieket as General Harrison
and Mr. Morton perambulated leisurely
about half-past 10. General Harrison
had invited hia'colleague to take a
walk with him. The air was braeing
arid invigoratiuj:. They crossed over
from Delaware to Meridian street, which
is regarded as the fiuest resident street
in the city, and walked northward away
from the business section of the city.
Then they crossed the street and walked
toward the city, coming almost to the
business limits and arriving Dome at
lunch time, having covered fully three
miles. Of course they were the cynosure
of all eyes as they leisurely strolled
alone, busily engaged in conversation.
While their distiuuguished husbands
were enjoying their walk, Mrs. Harrison
took Mrs. Morton out in the family carriage
for u drive about the city. Airs.
McKce accompanied them. In the afternoon
there were many cullers at the
Harrison residence; some few came to
talk politics with the General and pay
their respects to his guest, but the great
majority of the callers were of a purely
social character. Many well known society
ludies of the city naid their respects
to Mrs. Morton, Mrs. IIurriBon
and Mrs. Mclvee this afternoon uud this
evening.
Mr. Morton this morning sent word to
the Hoard of Trade committee that
awaited him last night that Mrs. Morton
and himself cordially accepted the tender
of a public reception at the hands of
the citizens of Indianapolis, regardless
of politics. liealso informed the com- ;
mittco that he had invited General uud
Mrs. Harrison, Mr. utul Mrs. Me Kite ami
Secretary Ilalford and wife to receive
with himself auii Mrs. Morton.
An noon as Mayor Demy received this
information lie called the committee together
to complete arrangements as to
the time and place for holding the reception.
They at once called at the
rooms of Governor Gray to receive his
reply to their request made the night
previous for the use of the Governor's
elegant reception room on the main
lloor of the Capitol. To their surprise 1
the committee were informed by Mr.
Pierre Gray, the sou and private sec re- <
tary of the Governor, that the latter had
departed early iu the morning for
Logansport without having left any in- ;
structions touching the use of the rooms
for the purpose of holding such a reception.
Air. Pierre Gray would not assume
authority in the premises and the
committee left the canitol in 11 very ruffled
frame of mind. Mr. Demy is particularly
outspoken in the matter, which
is the subject of general comment about
the hotels to-night. As soon as the
committee discovered u disposition to
withhold the use of the capitol they secured
Tomiinson hall, the property of
the city, and the reception will take
place there from 8 to 10 p. m. Friday
night.
Mr. Morton Btated to day that he believed
they should start for home about
Saturday evening, but Mrs. Morton has
not acquiesed in this programme as yet,
and members of General Harrison's
lamuy bay mai iiiuir gueauf win uu prevailed
upon to remaiu over Sunday at
least and longer if possible.
Mr. Mortou made a remark to-day to
an old friend who called that may or
may not have a little political significance.
He said: "Jean tell you one
thing; General Harrison will he President,"
emphasizing the "will" as he
spoke.

A bad railroad accident occurred at
Spencer Station, on the Central Ohio
division of the Baltimore & Ohio railway
Tuesday night, that might have resulted
much more seriously. The second sec*
tion of 80 was going west following the
first section, when it ran into the first
section with terrific force. Capt. O'Bannou
was conductor and John Askew engineer
of tho first section, and A1 Myers
was conductor and Bennett engineer on
the second. When tho two sections
came together, the caboose of the first
section was completely smashed into
kiudling wood by the eugiue of tho
second section ploughing into it, and that ,
engine was considerably damaged bv the
force of the contact.
Kskew, tho engineer of the second 1
section, jumped for his life, as also did
his fireman, S. L. Eckel beriy, und both j
escaped uninjured. Eskew landed in .

from a court where he had been prose- t
cuting a neighbor for tresp:wsing ou his i
