MONDAY EYEN1NG, OCTOBEB 28. By the provisions of tho elvi! service law the penalty impcBed upon a federal office holder for soliciting subscriptions to cam* paign funds is imprisonment in the peniten? tiary and a fioe of ?5,000. The civil service commission has determined to prosecute Mr. Elam, one of Gen. Mahone's lieutenants, un? der the provisions referred to, and as Mr. E!am is a federal office holder, os his name 1b appended to a circular issued by a com tee and sent to other federal office holders asking contributions to Gen. Mahone's cam? paign fund, as contributions to that fond were ma fe to that committee, and as Mr. E!am has never denied his membership of the committee or that his name was append? ed to the circular with bis consent, it is highly probable that, under the present ad? ministration, if he were a democrat, and if the money he solicited and collected had been added to a democratic election fund, ho would find that setting a law at open de? fiance could not be done with impunity. It .?eems that General Mahone is not only bcs3 of the republican party of Virginia and of tho federal executive power in the State, but of the national judicial power thereof also. Ho has ju?t had three judges of elec? tion arrested in Charlotte county and car? ried all the way to Lynchburg, though there was a U. S. Com?ni3sioncr at their own doors, on a charge of official misconduct at an election held one year ago. In the improba? ble event of the General's election, bis arbi? trary proceedings would exceed any thing ever dreamed of by the carpetbag and scalawag governors of other southern States during the reconstruction period. The gross outrage referred to should induce every right thinking oitizen of the State to redouble bis efforts to defeat the man who resorts to such high handed measures in order to intimidate the white voters of Vir? ginia. _ Gen. Mahone may as well deny that be has, during the present campaign, issued ten dollar certificates of subscription to bis cam? paign fund, deliberately intended to deceive the ignorant purchasers thereof with the promise that the possession of such certifi? cates will entitle their applications for office to favorable consideration, as to deny that in the Einton campaign in the Petersburg district he used tissue ballots. The circular letters directing tho use of the certificates are signed by General Mahone's private sec? retary ; those directing the use of the tissue ballots were also signed by the General's secretary at that time. But the fact that the General did use such ballots was never before denied. Speaking of the Virginia election, the New York Sun says that "if ever a band of democrats deserved to carry their State election, they are those of Virginia?the present representatives and the siaunchest believers in the Jeffersonian system among all the States." The Sun then adds. "The improvished democratic national committee cannot give them any help, and, on the other hand, it looks as though the entire at? tention of the administration had been con? centrated upon the effort to help Mahone carry his election. The situation is calcula? ted to some ways to try even the party sen? timent of Virginia. But that is as certain to meet the test successfully as it has met all those in the past." The official sanction given to the "order of deaconesses" by the late P. E. General Convention has been only obtained after a struggle of nearly a quarter of a century. The deaconess must be unmarried and at least twenty-five years of age, and is to assist the minister in the care of the poor and sick, the religious training of the youth, and in the work of moral reform. She has to be "set opart" for the office by appropriate religious services. Like civil service rules, the age clause is a give away, as few there be who willingly acknowledge to twenty-five "in the dusk with the lights bsbind them." When negko churches are to be erected, repaired or relieved of debt, the subscription papers circulated for that purpose are always presented to white peo? ple. But the negro preachers who have re? cently issued a circular to their race in? structing them to vote for Mahone, say that it 13 unnatural for a negro to vote any other than a republican ticket. These same ne gro preachers aiso profess to be great advo? cates of the public schools, but tbey invari? ably oppose the white people of the State, who pay ninety-two psr cent, of the expenses of vhe negro schools. One of the latest circular letters sent out by General Mahone to his collecting agents, says the appeal it makes for contri? butions to his election fund need not be pre? sented to federal office holders, as other arrangements have been made for reaching them. And yet there Is a c?rtain law termed the civil service law, which, if exe? cuted would, prohibit federal office holders from either subscribing to or collecting funds for eleotion purposes. But that law has long since become a grotesque fraud. Mb. Gladstone made a speech at Ches? ter, Eagland, last Saturday, in which he showed that during the last half century, that is during the period of free trade in his country, there has been an increase of fifty per cent, in laborers' wages there, and that the food and clothing of laborers there is cow cheaper and better than ever before. No such showing can be made In this coun? try as the effect of a quarter of a century of protective tariff. The Emperor William, of Germany, is to be received with fitting honors upon hin ar? rival in Constantinople. The streets through which the Emperor le to pass are to be re paved and thoroughly cleansed, and the houses are to be repaired and tastefully de. corated, all at the ezpeneeof those living on the route of the procession. It would be a good thing if an Emperor would visit cer? tain other cities "of whiob we wot"?as an old friend need to say. In Anticipation of the marriage of the Crown Prince of Greece to Princess Sophie of Germany, Athens is the gayest place in Europe to day.

McKinney, the democratic uominee for Governor, completes bis tour in tbe Southwest next Thursday. Tbe result of Saturday's registration all over the State is highly encouraging to the democrats. They have made large gains iu nearly all the sections from which re ports have been received. Tbe democrats of King William county had a grand old fashioned barbecue at Cen treville on Saturday. Governor Lee attend? ed as the guest of a democratic club, and made a rousing speech on the subject of j democraoy and white supremacy. It bas been brought to the attention of the civil eervice commlsnioo that the Old Do j minion Republican League of the District of Columbia bas bad mailed or delivered to persons in the public service in the depart? ments at Washington circulars requesting contributions for political purposes in Vir? ginia. Two democratic judges of election iu Ab pinwall district, Charlotte county, were ar? rested on Saturday by special deputies of the United States Marshal for that district each on bogus charges of fraud at the last presidential election and carried to Lynch burg, where after a partial hearing tho case was continued till to day. The arrest caused great indignation in that section. A special from Keysville, in Charlotte county, Bays it has been known for some time that ono of Mab one's schemes was to buy up tho judges as far as possible, and it poems that, failing in this he is to proceed to the wholesale ar? rest of the judges, and the first instalment of them were carried from Asplnwall toLynch burg Saturday morning. Why Mr. Blaine Declined. The New York World prints to day an explanation from the pen of a member of the staff Eent to Florence, Italy, of James G' Blaine's declination of the presidency in 1SSS, and the circumstances under which bis famous Florence letter was written. The correspondent says: "Mr. Blaine had a stroke of paralysis, brought on by a chill caught in the St. Gotbard tunnel, and was prostrated at Milan for twonty-four days with pariesis. With bis convalescence ap? peared a most distressing type of melan? cholia which fully developed after he reach? ed Florence. During this last stage of his long and pitiful illness, aoting on the advice of a conscientious physician, Mr. Blaine wrote the letter of Jan. 25, 1SSS, withdraw? ing his name from the list of presidential candidates. Dr. Baldwin was the physician who as a matter of 'life or death', prompted the writing of the letter. Ab he admits to the World's correspondent, Dr. Fornori, of Milan, attended Mr. Blaine when first strioken down, and helped to keep secret the story of his illness. For weeks Mr. Blaine was unable to articulate after being suddenly stricken down, and Dr. Baldwin, at Florence, insisted that he must not un? dergo the excitement of a campaign." Boyal Wedding;. Princess Sophie of Prussia and the Duke of Sparta, Crown Prince of Greece, were married in the cathedral at Athens yester? day in accordance with tbe Lutheran rite. The whole route from the castle to tho church was lined with troops, behind whom were packed et I id masses of spectators. The greatest enthusiasm was manifested by the populace. The handsome uniform and jeweled orders of tbe Kaiser, and the mag? nificent diamonds worn by Augu9ta Victoria attracted universal admiration. The scene in tbe Cathedral was a brilliant one, the nniforms of the assembled dignitaries and the superb dresses and jewels of the ladies forming a splendid spectacle. The centre aisle of the ohurcb was strewn with roses. The eervice occupied more than a hour. Princes Victor and George of Wales, held golden crowns over the heads of the bride and bridegroom. Alabama Outlaws.?Sheriff Morris, of Blount county, Ala., on Friday with a posse of forty men, surrounded Rupe Bur? rows, a noted outlaw and train robber, and one of bis gang, near Brookville, Blount county. The outlaws killed Henry Ander? son and Penn Woodward of the posse, wounded six others and escaped. The sheriff and his po3se were armed only with shotguns and pistols, while the outlaws had Winchester rifles of large caliber. They fired on the posse at a distanoe of two hun? dred yards, and the shots from the officers' guns and pistols fell short. Burrows and his man had been in the vicinity for two days. They took to the mountains and made good their escape. Bishop Keane says all the professors of the Catholic University will Boon be here. FROM WASHINGTON. [Spsclai Oorrespondouco of tho Aloxn. Gazetib] Washington, D. C. Oct. 28,1889. Saaotor Barbour of Virginia ie in the city to day. He Bays the reported interview with him published In the New York World of yesterday to the effect that tbe democratic j prospect in Virginia is unfavorable, is ut? terly nnd entirely incorrect, and that be never thought, iet alone said, any thing tbat warranted it or from wbioh each an idea as tbat referred, could have been legitimately conceived. On the contrary, he says he has reliable information from every county and city in the State, and knows that the de? mocracy there was never before in better condition. He says that while tbe demo? crats of Virginia cot no money from the na? tional democratic committee, they got from other sources more than they ever bad be fore; that they are better equipped and better organized than they ever have been in any previous campaign, and tbat he was never more con? fident of victory than at present. He says Gen. Mahone has used a great deal of money and will probably u=o a great deal more be tween now and election day, and tbat be may possibly buy some votes with it, but that while he, Barbour, is certain there are not five thousand white Virginians who have so little self respect as to sell their votes, he has, in hie estimate?, made allowance for that number, and that even should General Mahone bny that many, the democratio ticket will be elected by a decisive majority. Mr. Bar? bour says collections were being made for General Mabone's campaign fund in Philadelphia ?o late as last week by prominent high tariff men in that city. Ha Bays ex Senator Lewis, of Virginia, a republican, now in this city, tells him the majority against Mahone in bis sec tion of the State will be large, and tbat the democrats will elect their legislative ticketin bis county, Rockingham?a gain. He says Mr. Lewis McKenzie of Alexandria, st prom? inent republican, tolls him Mahone will be defeated by twenty thousand majority. Mr. Barbour says the arrest of tbe democratic judges of election in Charlotte county was a great outrage, and that the State democratic committee will make it their especial busi? ness to defend them and all other judges, and other election officers, and every other Virginia democrat whom Gen. Mahone and his agents may attempt to intimidate either before or nt tbe election. Mr. Barbour says a large majority of the people of Virginia are opposed to Gen. Mahone, and that this is no time for them to be deprived by any means whatever of the rights of that major? ity, and that he has no fears that they will allow themselves to be. Congressman Mills of Texas, the author of the Mills bill, was at the Capitol to-day. He takes great interest in the result of the coming election in Virginia aod thinks that a break there would do disastrous to the whole South. Mr. Mills takes a gloomy but rational view of tbe future condition of the South. He thinks tho coming republican Congress wiil pass a national election law establishing republican election returning boards in every city and county in the South, appointed for life by the present republican administration, and thereby secure posses? sion of hlsBectioD;tbat consequently theSouth will be forever coder negro domination, and that the necessary consequence will be tbe rain of all the material interests of tbat sec? tion, and tbat when that condition shall be reached and the North suffer from its ef fects, as it must do, the people of the latter section will, but hardly oefore, realize the great mistako they have made, as it is tbe South which now supplies the country with by far the larger part of its exports. Mr. Mills denies tbe newspaper report that he said Mr. Cleveland would be the democratic can? didate for President at the next eleotion, and thinks It entirly too early to be making Presidential prognostications for 1S92. General Mahone arrived here yesterday, and last night had a conference with sev? eral of his lieutenants who met him here by previous appointment. Among them were Judge Perkins of Kansas, and Messrs. Edmund Burke and D. A. Windsor of Alex? andria, Waddiil of Richmond, Brown Allen of Staun ton,Bnd others. What he told them is unknown, but to other people he seemed to be In his usual spirits. It is reported that the consultation was in reference to the preparation of imaginary reasons to be as? signed as (he causo for his anticipated de feat. In talking to-day about what Congress? man Brown, of Iudiana, said to the Ga? zette's correspondent some days ago, to the effect tbat General Joe Johnston bad told him that General Mahone was one of the pluckiest officers in his command. Gen? eral Johnston said ho could not con? ceive how Mr. Brown could have ever got such en idea in his mind, In the first place, the General said, General Mahone was not in his command more than three days, and in the second, that even in that short time he misbehaved himself. Up to 2 o'clock this aftornoon the father of tho missing girl Bolle Brown had heard nothing abont her. On Saturday last ho thought ho had a clew to hor whorcabonts, and hoped to havo heard from her yesterday. That hope is now dispelled, and he knows no moro about her than he did the day sho loft. Ho was induced to think she had gone to Norfolk, but now has no reason to bslievo tho strange girl scon thero was his daughter. VIRGINIA NEWS.

T?reugh the veiling woman who was employed as a celegrapn operator at Hancock, Mich., last May, the State's attorney has learned the identity of the senders of telegrams, which Burke received from that point. One of these telegrams, it is said, was addressed to Burke at Joiiet, telling him to get out quick? ly.
