A BOY'S STRANGE VOYAGE.
PICKED UP—UNCONSCIOUS FROM STARVA
TION—ON A TREE IN THE MISSISSIP PI.
St. Louis, September 2. —Last Thursday
morning, five miles below Chester, on the
Illinois shore of the Mississippi river, and
sixty miles below St. Louis, a boy about
seven years of age was found In the river,
floating on the trunk of a huge cottonwood
tree, and from the evidence attainable at
present It appears certain that the little fel
low had been In this position five or six
days without food.
The little fellow was lying In a kind of
hollow en which bad formed In the trunk.
He was unconscious and In a high state of
fever, while his wasted form and emaciated
appearance bespoke long abstinence from
food. The men who found him lifted him
Into the skiff, rowed ashore and carried him
to a farmhouse, and medical assistance was
called In.
The boy remained for twenty-four hours
In a comatose condition, but yesterday he
began to give signs of consciousness. He is
still unable to converse, so that It Is not
known who he Is or where he comes from,
or how he came into auch a perilous posi
tion.
The presumption is that the boy must
have drifted on the trunk from some point
near the mouth ot the Missouri river, ven
turing upon the trunk while It was lying
close to the banks, and by some means it
became detached and was carried down the
stream by the current. Tbe trunk, for
tunately, was admirably fitted for a resting
place, as It was gnarled and hollow centres
were formed In it. Had It not been so he
must Inevitably have met with a watery
grave.
The little fellow must at least have bees
the trunk for five or six days, drifting
100 miles, during which time he, of course,
had no inatenance. The men who took him
off the tree said that io oae place the bark
appeared gnawed, which would indicate
that the lad, to appease the pangs of
hunger, actually nibbled and gnawed at the
tree.
on
RAILWAY ENTERPRISE IN NEW
FOUNDLAND.
The Newfoundland government has ad
dressed a circular to a number of prominent
American contractors inviting their atten
tion to a movement which is on foot looking
to the construction of a railroad across the
island fro m St. John's to St. George's bay,
some other convenient point on the west
coast. The Legislative Assembly of New.
foundland has resolved to vote an annual
subsidy of $120,000 to any Individual or
company which will take the matter in
band, besides granting liberal concessions
of crown lands for the purpose. The com
pletion of the proposed line would have the
effect of opening up enormous deposits of
copper, iron, coal, nickel, lead and other
minerals, which are now almose Inaccessi
ble, while it would also cut through th#
great pine and spruce forests of tbe in
terior, which are also at present utterly
useless. The construction of the r» ilroad
would shorten the ocean voyage by one
thousand miles.

A GAIN IN ALL WARDS
AND A DEMOCRATIC
COUNCIL.
Right and justice triumphed yesterday.
The people of Wilmington may well be
congratulated upon their uprising to a true
conception of the wants of their munlclp
alty. Allmond, the successful and upright
merchant, who so worthily has performed
his duty as a citizen, la called to the
Mayoralty Uy over elx hundred majority of
tbe votes cast at the election. This is a
good day's work as It rebukes the aesutap.
tlon of political unfitness, and seals the
stamp of condemnation upon corruption
and trickery.
We have carried Councils so overwhelm
ingly that It throws upon us the entire re
sponsibility of the city government. Let
ua at this time, In the midst of our triumph,
resolve to practice the moat rigid economy
in the administration of our municipal
affairs. Thus we will satisfy the expets
tlons of the people, and deserve the confi
dence given to us, by the votes of our
citizens.

the
SCENES AND INCIDENTS.
The day passed off very quietly, and no
serious rows occurred. Iu a number of the
wards a good bit of feeling prevailed and a
lively time was experienced, especially In
the first, Second, Fifth, Eighth and Ninth
wards. In the Fifth ward shortly after the
polls opened, a young man named Barney
McVey. residing on Windsor street, went
up and offered his vote, but It was reftised
by Thomas W. Savllle. Constable Pritch
ett insisted upon the vote being taken, but
Savllle savagely refused to do so, and
finally upon being pressed struck Mr.
Pritchett and the two men clinched. They
were forced apart by friends, but Savllle
was dissatisfied and drew a revolver in his
rage, threatening to blow a hole through
his opponent, but peace was at length re
stored. .....
Just before the Ninth ward polls closed a
crowd of some seventy-five or eighty ne»
grocs came up, and threatening to take
possession, behaved In a very disorderly
manner. Word was at once sent to the
police station, and as there were no police
men about, Chief O'Toole drove over, but
the Begroes having got wind of word being
sent for aid, had dispersed before he ar
rived.
At Fifth and Spruce street, the eastern
precinct of the Fourth ward, a ripple of ex
citement was created at about 5.30 o'clock,
when a man came up to vote and had his
vote challenged by John Gallagher, who
had been very drunk and quite abusive all
afternoon, and the man struck him. Gal
lagher then turned to officer Traynor and
ordered him to arrest the man, and imme
diately caught the officer by tbe collar and
commenced hauling him around the street.
Officer Traynor not being used te such
things of course did not enjoy It, and finally
settled the festive John with a smart blow
In the eye.
In the evening the colored iolks had a
warm contest In the western Precinct of the
Fifth ward by Jack Boston and Peter Blake
getting together and mopping up the gutter
with each other by turns.
WHERE THE GAIN LAYS.
The result gives * sweeping Democratic
victory throughout the whole city. The
vote exceeds that cast at the last mayoralty
by a hundred votes, and tbe Democratic
gain since then In the election foi Mayor is
In the neighborhood of 540 votes. Of the
ten candidates for council, which were voted
lor, six of the Democrats were elected, viz:
Mr. Huestsi in the First ward, Mr. Town
send in the Second, Mr. McGllnchey In the
Third, Mr. Hart In the Fourth, Mr. Rowe
In the Ninth and Mr. Lynch In the Tenth.
Of the holding over members, six are
Democrats and four are Republicans. Of
the new members six are Democrats and
four are Republicans, which will only give
the Republicans nine members counting
the President, and the Democrats twelve, or
majority of three.
By 9:30 o'clock the result became
sufficiently known to enable a fair idea that
the Republicans had auffered an Igno
minious defeat, and the water department
which had presented an animated scene
the early part oi the evening gradually
grew silent and desisted, and the brave
Captain and bis company threw down their
arms and dispersed to their homes as the
truth gradually forced itself upon their
minds. Not so with the Democratic head
quarters, in the Friendship engine house
ad
the
bay,
or
in
the
of
th#
in
one
a
■fff*
where the wildest enthusiasm prevailed
which grew more and more Intense as the
returns continued to come In, which made
the success more assured.
At length, when all the returns were In
a band was engaged and a number of the
successful candidates were visited. The
flrst of whom called on was Mr. Allmond
who responded to the serenade 10 a very
pleasant and happy
From 10 o'clock
till after midnight the
wildest demonstrations of joy were preva
lent all through the city, ben«fires were
kindled In-' all parts of town and sent up
their lurid blaze: people shouted and
hurrahed in the fullness of their satisfac
tion and while many of the defeated Re
publlcaas slunk quietly home, many were
quite willing to give In and join In with the
expression of satisfaction.
Below we give the general result In the
city In a table, and after that tbe council
election In paragraph form.
