Each bulletin will give the exact vote of 1884 for the same pre cincts. As soon as twenty additional pre cints have been reported they will be added to the first twenty and the result will comprise the second regular bulletin. The returns by counties will also be sent in addition to the precinct bulletins, but it is scarcely probable any county re turns will be received before 1 or 2 o'clock Wednesday morning, a3 the ticket in In diana contains 37 to 40 names, and under the law each name on the ballot must be called off and this will delay the returns.

It is conservatively estimated that to morrow's vote will reach 520,000 to 530, 000, showing a large increase over 1884 Next to the result in the State at large, the greatest interest centres in this (Älariou) county, and many wagers are taken on the outcome. There are ninety precincts in Marion county, including the city of In dianapolis. The vote in 1884 was: Cleve land, 14,205; Blaine, 14,433; Butler, 44G ; St. Johu, 172.

Harrison's third precinct gave Blaine 236; Cleveland 66; other candidates nothing. The Democratic State Committee has ar ranged to also bring returns by precincts and the Associated Press will handle their returns giving totals of every 30 precincts and the statmeut with each bullitin that returns are from the Democratic com mittee.

It must expect defeat. New York. New York, November 6.—The Herald editorial, says: Indications are at the hour of going to press that Harrison is elected to the Presidency.

List of the Dead and Wounded. Lock Haven, Pa., November 4.— There was an explosion last night in the Kettle Creek Coal company's mine, thiity miles west of this city. The explosion occurred in the new drift, in which twenty-one per sons were at work. As soon as possible after the explosion the mine was entered and fifteen dead bodies carried ont. Four other men who were badly injured were found, one of whom has since diel, and the others are likely to die. The cause of the explosion is unknown, but is supposed to have been the striking of a fissure or pocket of gas. This afternoon the disfig ured and naked body of a miner was found fifty feet from the month of an air shaft through which it had been blown. The names of the dead, so far as have been learned, are: SAMUEL KILLINGER, PARK DONNELLY, MICHAEL CURRAN and three Carls ton brothers. All but those named above were Hun garians or Italians whose names we are not furnished. A driver named Harrell was entering the drift when the explosion occurred. He was thrown toward the month and escaped. His mule was killed. The force of tfie explosion was shown in the fact that bodies were blown clear out of the mouth of the pit. Everything possible was done for the injured by mine phy sicians. The bodies of the dead were taken charge of by an ander taker and pre pared for interment. The coroner of the county was notified aud will hold an inquest to-morrow. Tne mine inspector of the district has also been summoned. Although it oc curred before dark yesterday, it was not given out by the officials of the company till to-day, they having been advised of it late at night. It is thought that in mak ing a drill a gas feeder was struck, filling the chamber with gas, which, coming in contact with a naked lamp, cansed the ex plosion. A "gas feeder" is a pocket of gas imbedded in coal. The superintendent says the accident could not have been fore seen and no blame attaches to any one. A special to the Press from Williams port Bays: It is rumored the direct cause of the explosion was by the inexperienced uBe of dynamite. In a conversation with one of the drivers who escaped it is learned that an Italian had gotten 100 sticks of dynamite from the storekeeper in the moraiDg and had also gotten 100 caps and had returned after the fuse, but as there were none in stock, it is supposed he tried to set it off in some other way, thus caus ing the explosion. Iu the blacksmith shop near the scene of the disaster lays the charred and unrecognizable remains of August Pierson who was blown ont through the air-shaft, fifty feet in the air, and some of bis clothes can he seen hang ing to a limb of a large tree near by. Next to him is Mike Corren, who was blown fifty feet out of the mouth of the mine and was found dead in a ditch, still clinging to the head of his shovel. He leaves a wife and seven small children. Beside him was P. F. Donnelly, who was also blown out of the month of the mine. Donnelly leaves a wife and four children. John Farrel, a male driver, tells this story: I was busy pushing my car and sticking up my head I saw a llash. I immediately dropped to the ground, moving quickly as possible towards the mouth of the drift and escaped unhurt. My mule and a Swede miner aloDg side of the animal were instantly killed. I felt but little of the effects of the explosion, and its force must have been all above me, although all the laborers at the mouth of the shaft were carried out 200 feet beyond the mouth of the drift. Worthless Bonds. Cincinnati, October 30. —It was report ed here this evening that Judge Hoadley, at New York, Bent a communication to the city comptroller iDtimatiug that the $4, 000,000 of bonds lloated by the city for the recent street improvements were in valid, because of legal informality.

Michael Henry Herbert has been appointed British charge d'affairs at Washington. Lord Sackville retnrns to England immediately on leave of absence. It is understood the government will allow his case to rest un til alter the presidential election. QUESTION AT ISSUE. London Press on West and Cleve land. London, October 31. —The Daily News says: Lord Sackville may be congratula ted upon having involved his country in the most serious misunderstanding with America that has occurred since the settle ment cf the Alabama claims. There was not much in the letter, bnt he might at least have held his tongue afterward. He has succeeded in mnking bad worse and has deepened the impression, previously very slight, that he intended to charge the American government with insincerity in international dealing*. That is an accusa tion which, even if true, no high spirited people would endure from a representative of a foreign power. The News regrets Mr. Bayard's apparant lack of courtesy, and thinks Lord.,Salisbury has shown want of judgment. He onght to have acted promptly. No one, it fays, except Mr. Cleveland, emerges from the qnarrel very creditably. Post says: Political necessities are too stODg for public men in America. Hence the Prfsideut was driven to offer an affront to Minister Sackville and the friendly country he represents. Daily Telegraph : We confess ourselves, however, far too much friends of America to enjoy the spectacle of its government, driven by an ignoble trick and election howl, to heave good manners and great principles overboard and adopt a course which, in private life, would be called by painful names. Times : A more ridiculous spectacle has rarely been witnessed than the flurried and unmannerly haste with which America has endeavored to put a slight upon Eng land before the latter conld deal with the matter one way or the other. Mr. Bayard has the satisfaction of proving to the world that he can be as contemptuously disregardful of the decencies of internation al intercourse and the dignity of the nation he represents as Mr. Blaine himself. The Standard says: The text of Mr. Bayard's letter forbids all farther hope that the object of the United States govern ment was not to do an offensive thing in a most offensive way.

London, October 31. —The Pall Mall Gazette says: If Secretary Bayard's re buke of Lord Sackville fails to convince the Irish voters that President Cleveland can he relied on to check John Bull as much a3 any other man we do not see what there is left for him to do short of placing Lord Sackville under arrest and escorting him to the frontier. How silly it all is now. Much the Americans will despise themselves for it when the election fever is over. St. James Gazette : Sackville is techni cally in the wrong. England cannot resent the affront which Bayard has put upon it. Englishmen can only pity American states men for the strange thiDgs they do in order to oblige caucuses.

Lord Sack ville has been subjected to unmanuerly treatment by both Mr. Bayard and Presi dent Cleveland. If our minister comes back it will simply he because of Mr Cleveland's ambition to be elected Presi dent a second time soars far above the re qnirements of international courtesy and good will.
