Exe cutive Councillors and a Legis lature. Iowa elected a Governor and other State officers, together with a Legislature which will choose a successor to United States Senator James P.

This Legis lature will also elect a Senator for the full term of six years from March 4, 1815. The elections in the other States were chiefly of a local character. In every one of the above nam ed States there were great Re publican gains. Kansas is going back from the Populistic fanatic ism to Republicanism. Iowa is redeemed. New Jersey defeats the disreputable ring,1 Michigan is all right. In Virginia there was no Republican ticket and the fight was between the Demo crats and Populists, the Demo crats winning. Pennsylvania gives over 100.600 Republican majority. Ohio has practically swept the Democrats from her soil and the Republican majority may reach 100,000. New York did a beauti ful work, by sending us ahead 4J.OOO on the regular ticket and over 100,000 on one candidate. Iowa is redeemed and the plural is a daisy. In Massachusetts a Democratic Governor is turned out and a Re publican Governor turned in. And so it goes. This is still a Republican Re public and in 1896 it will come again unto its own.

Congressman John Dalzell, in an eloquent address at Old City Hall, Pittsburg, on the night of the election, inaugurated the boom for ex-Speaker of the House Tom Reed as the Republican candidate for President 1896. A dispatch from Columbus says, "No more doubt being held, even by opponents, the headquarters are being abandoned, and meet ings held nominatingM'Kinley for President,in speeches by Boutelle, Doliver, Horr, Chairman Dick and others." . When we contemplate the misery and ruin?starvation, that is abroad in the land, and com pare the present condition of the people with their condition last year, we are appalled. On elec tion day one year ago. every body was prosperoiWamThappy. The next day it itaowed. How appropriate for NatbwAo-epread a white mantle oyer the earth to hide for a time the terrible effects of that day's work. The white* covering passed away and the black darkness of despair has invaded thousands of homes. How many hearts are sad and weary to-day who were happy and blithe a year ago. Yet, strangest, most peculiar. Is the j fact that the same men who vot ed to bring this woe upon them selves and families will on next Tuesday vote to continue the folly.?ifartinaburg Herald.

Charles Elslie, a youth of 19, committed suicide in New York I the other day. His father is a taxidermist and the youth was very fond of animals and had many strange pets, among which was a large rattlesnake. When the door of his room was forced open and his bloody body discovered the rattlesnake was found coiled around its stiffened arm. The snake reared its head, shook its rattles angrily and started for the intruders, who beat a hasty retreat when the devoted serpent return ed to the body which it guarded with touching devotion. The boy's father had to be sent for to re move the rattler before anybody | dared approach the body. The Baltimore and Ohio R. R.

The Boundary Line Between West Virginia and Mary land. Attornoy GoneralPoe.of Mary land. has filed in tho Supremo Court of the United States the answer of Maryland to the cross bill of tho Attorney-General of West Virginia to fix the boundry line between the two States. Tho original bill was filed by Attor ney-General White, of Maryland, in November. 1891. West Vir ginia. by its Attorney-Genertl Hon. T. 8. Riley, filed itB an- | swerlast spring, and its cross bill in Juno. These proceedings involve the long disputed ques tion between the two States. West Virginia succeeding to tho claims and alleged adverse pos session of Virginia. The claim of the people ?f this state as to the Western boundary between the Fairfax grant and tho colony o- Virginia, must be taken to mark the -first fountain of the Potomac," that being tho desig. nation of the western boundary of Maryland in tho charter from ? f?toS ? 10 ^ n*'??n?re in 10,^. Our lawyers aod states men also claim that the lino must be thence run north to the Penn sylvania line by the lino surveyed and laid down by Francis Deak ins in 1771. Maryland's claim is that "the first fountain of tho Potomac" was not truly marked at tho Fair fax stone, but that the bouolary should begin at tho head of tho South Branch of the Potomac, as being in reality the first foun tain of the river, and that tho lino should run thence duo north to the Pennsylvania line. A further claim ot Maryland is that the Deakin's line of 1771 was only a provisional line run until ??.itTjiDe C?nld 1)0 deB?"tely settled between the two States. The Southern boundary of Maryland In dispute. West Vir ginia claims. Is the north ban it of the Potomac. That boundary. Maryland claims, is the South bank of the Potomac frcm "the first fountain of the river" to the boundary line at or near Harpers Perry, between Virginia and West Virginia, as the boundary between Maryland and Virginia was decided by the Black-Jenkins award to be the south bank from Harpers Ferry to the Chesajwake The record is now made up on bo h sides, and a final descision of this important question, it is said, will be given at the present term of the Supreme Court. Tho land covered by tho dispute. ? cording to Maryland's claim to South Branch of the Potomac consists of nearly 500.000 acres. If 1 ne run by Lieutenant Mich er in 1859 should be estab ished Instead of the Deakin's line, the present supposed bound ?ry between Garrett county,Md ?od Preston oounty, W. Va.. will be changed, and Maryland .will acquire a strip of land starting from the Fairfax stone, thirty, seven miles long and three queers of a mile wide at tho ?eupbnlral. Our distinguished friend.
