THE DAY OF DAYS.
The Municipal Flection in To-day's Chief Attraction. THE LAST TWENTY-FOUR HOURS Preceding (he Contest is the occasion of a Great Amonnt of IInetting an Both flldM of the Political Fenco?Vtctorjr* However* Seems to Have a Decided J?eaulng Toward the Republicans?Polls Open at 7 a.m. and Close at 6 p. m. This is election day. and If the weather bureau prediction* are verified It will be a very "cold day." Polls open at 7 a. m. and. close at 6 p. ni. Interest In the contest, which Is altogether along party lines, has become quite pronounced within the past fortyhour*. Yesterday the workers of both parties were hard at work getting their wires in good working order, and it is predicted that both parties will 'get out a biff vote. The silly effort of the Register to hoodoo its readers and the public Into the belief that the election would bo Illegal through an alleged failure on the part of City C.'erk Danncnberg to perform his duty, fell rather flat yesterday. Of course there w?ia nothing in the publication; It was merely a poorly constructed attempt a: sensationalism. In a nutshell the story was that the election today will be illegal because the city clerk did not comply with a law providing that notice of the election must be printed in newspapers ten days before the contest. One of the sections of the state election law quoted by the Register was Section 30. as follows: ".\t least ten days before an election t'? fill any public utTlc<. at which the voters of any county arc entitled to vote, the clerk of the circuit court of such county shall cause to be published in two newspapers, if such there be puidistv-d within the county, representing; the polical parties which at the last preceding general election east tjw largest number of votes i:i the state, or if there be only one newspaper published therein, then. In such newspaper, the nominations for office certified t-? him and filed in his office, EXCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR OFFICE TO BE FILLED BY THE VOTERS OF ANY SLB-Dl VISION LESS THAN A COl'NTY." It will be noticed that the concluding provision of he section clearly shows that the section does not apply t ? municipal elections, for a city is clearly a subdivision of a county. City Clerk Dannenberg consulted Solicitor Boyce several days ago regarding this section and that official slated then that the notice provided for in this section is not necessary In tnc prescut Instance. Yesterday, two well known lawyers were seen by the intelligencer, and both supported th" stand taken by Mr. Boy.\ saying there is no doubt that th? section does not apply to the Wheeling municipal election. There are thirty-two precinct.* for to-day's election and it Is believed that th? count of the vote will be completed before 2 o'clock to-morrow mom in?. Th^ returns will be received at the city ?;lerk's office. First Ward. Precinct No. 1?205 Main street. Fr?>rlnrt No. 2?423 Main street.

From ail part? of ilio soutitw?t>t reports have been received and they ail agree that field work wi|l be suspended until the weather moderates. Many pumping wells have shut down on ac count of water lines being frozen up, and work at drilling wells 1vjc? shut down from the same cause, and the extreme hardship that the drilling crews would have to endure to keep the drill bouticIns:. A continuance of the kind of weather experienced for the pxst two days would soon adjust the difference between the runs and shipments. Down in Monroe county the Eastern Oil Company has drilled In Its test on tlie Relnhart farm, located (500 foet pouthwrst of (he well on the Wright farm, ami will have a fifteen or twenty barrel pumper.

This was the last of the three entertainments given | this week by the old soldiers of "Wheeling and Benwood, to raise funds for the state encampments to be held in Wheeling in April, and as expected was the most successful from a financial standpoint. The receipts equalled those combined of the two previous evenings. The hall was not sufficiently large to comfortably accommodate the crowds that thronged there, but it was a good natured, sociable assemblage, and enjoyment reigned supreme. The oyster supper was a feature during the early part of the evening, and the ladle* in attendance were kept busy between the hours of 7 and 9 o'clock. Cak" and ice cream were dispen.ved In the gallery, and helped refresh the dancers. Dancing was kept up until - o'clock this moraine, and the floor was a scene of continued, gayety until the last dance oti the programme was played by Prof. Long. During the evening the quilt 'made by Grandmother Holliday was on exhibition and chances were taken for It. but Jt will not be.disposed of unless a sufficient sum is secured. Made by a woman In her ninety-fifth year, a woman who was a nurse in the civil war, and after whom Holllday corps of the Woman's Relief Corps is called, it possesses a peculiar historical interest and some day will bo treasured as an interesting relic. It is the intention of the old soldiers to give ?n entertainment in West wood's hall, in the Eighth ward, and one In Kenwood, In the near future. With the success had so far, their coming"efforts will doubtleys meet with tho same rewards.

The "Why" of 11. To the Kditor or Iho Intelllcencer. SIR:?This morning's Intelligencer contained a card from "Technic" asking why our musical societies do not bring to Wheeling sonic finished artists of world-wide reputation. The reason they do not often do so is found, in the fart that the demand Is not so preying as "Technic" believes It to ^e. It costs hundreds of dollars to bring such an attracllon here, and our musical public Is so small, so poor, and so devoted to farce-comedy that it is unsafe to depend inmn It to !WV till* bills. The nPCItSSJiTV fund?" mum be advanced or oecured by a fi-vv pcopl-v who cannot often run ho great a rink. So much for the situation In general.

A CLOSED PIVER At Wheeling is Imminent Unless There Is Warmer Weather.

Yesterday afternoon the ice gorged at V?"S w??n??viii? flKnnf fortv miles down the river, and if the gorge at that j point holds, which 1? likely unless there ' Is a rise Jn the river, Jt Is a certainty that j the river will close a considerable distance above. It would not bo surprising I if the river would close at Wheeling this afternoon or to-night. A closed river is j rendered mnre probable on account of the j fact that the river is falling at all of the i reported polntn. If the river should close, rivermcn will watch the river news closely, for a sudden break-up would mean tremendous damage to floating property. Wheeling once had an experience with a break-up of that character. It was in the winter of 186S, when live steamboats and the wharfboat were swept away from the public landing, the damage reachcd many thousands. This year there Is no floating property at the Wheeling public landing with the exception of the wharf boar. The .' teamboats plying in local trades are harbored in safe places where there wll^be less danger In the event of a break-up. It was reputed last night that the river I had closed ab^ v Steub^nvilie. but no confirmation of the report could be secured. _ Pltfsbnrglt Ktver 3irir?. PITTSBURGH, Jan. 27.?The river is falling steadily, the marks on the wharf showing but 2.7 feet this morning. The Monongahela Is nearly clo?ed throughout Its entire length above Lock No. 4. The pool boats are working night and day to keep a channel open, but ate having only indifferent success. The weather Is to cold that the ice forms almost a# rapidly as it can be broken up. It Is important that the river should be kept open as long as the water Is high enough to allow the shipment of flat coal Into the harbor.

LONDON, Jan. 27.-A dispatch to the Dally Telegraph from Port Luis, island of Maritiua, published io-tf&y, furr.Irhrt particulars of the wreck of the British Indian troop ship Warren Hastings, which was wrecked off the Island of Reunion, on Thursday, January 14. The ship, it appears, ran ashore at 2:20 a. m. It was pitch dark, and torrents of rain were falling. She had on board soidJera and crew to the number of 1.232 men, in addition to a number of women and children, the families of the married mon of the military force. When the ship struck the troops were ordered to retire from the upper deck, to which they had flocked on the first alarm, and to fall in below. This they did promptly, the most perfect discipline prevailing, although the men were fully conscipus of the clanger which they were in. They were quietly mustered on the 'tween decks without confusion or excitement. Owing t?? the fact that the surf boats could not be used in landing the troops, two officers of the Warren Hastings were lowered from the ship's bow t'? the rocks, and when it was found that h landing could be affected'in this way the disembarkation of the soldiers was comninncpri nt ? o'clock. Commander Hoi land hoping it was safe to retain the women, children And the sick on board until daylight. But the 3teamship was soon found to be heeling over s<? rapidly I that everyone was ordered to the upper deck, the danger of capsizing being imminent. | Thereupon Commander Holland orderI ed the landing of the troops to be stopped In order that the women, children and sick persons should be landed immediately. This order was obeyed with fld| mlrable discipline. By f? o'clock the i decks had heeled over to an angle of fifty I degrees to starboard and the boats were ! all swept away. The good swimmers I were then permitted to swim ashore, carrying ropes. By this means many others were landed and the disembarkation of all on board was completed by 5:30 a. m.? I with the loss of only two native servants; I Many actj of gallantry were recorded. CPN8UL REGULATIONS. byllie Govrrumrnt Wlilcll Will Not lie Itcliihed liy Some. "WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.?The state department has jus-t begun the issue of a 1 revised set of regulations for United States consuls, which was prepared by Mr. Frank Partridge, formerly solicitor of the state department under special sppolntment by the secretary of sta-fe. This is the lirst revision made of these regulations since and as the volume has grown much since that date and many qualifications have been made to meet the decisions of the treasury and executive orders, there was great need for a general revision to simplify the work. This has been done so well that It will > now he possible for consuls to make themselves acquainted with the rules j , touching any subject In short order. I The most important changes In the rules are those doing away with the ncc: esslty for verifying oaths i?f exporters to Invoices, which have been a source of j great vexation to business men for years | 1 and have served no useful purpose, save , ti? swell tho fees of the consuls. Aho in j the case of notarial-fees the rules have I been amended so as to make these uniform and on the scale of fees fixed by j f"- '?? ruutrjft nf Columbia.
