SATURDAY EVENING. NOV. 17, 18:94.
The Constitution provides that each house of Congress shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members. The plain mean* ing of this is to determine who has been chosen by the qualified vottrj, at the legal time and places, and returned according to the regulations prescribed by the law3 of the States or by Con? gress. So that the recent secret as? sembling of the defeated republican candidates for Congress in Virginia at "Washington, for the purpose of induc? ing the republican members of the House to give them the seats to which their successful democratic opponents were chosen by majorities of the qual? ified voters,at the legal time and places, and returned according to the regula? tions prescribed by the laws of Virginia, was not only ridiculous, but was an im? pudent and bare-faced affront to Virgin? ia, and a gross insult to the republican congressmen whose action they desire to affect. Such behavior is not surpris? ing in respect of some of those present, but it is so in respect of the others, as it certainly tends to strengthen the fa* mous erroneous assertion of Mr. John Wise, that "all Southern republicans are apostates for the price of their apostacy. The New York Press, rank republi? can, says: "Tammany must be exiled from all the departments of the city over which the republican mayor has power of appointment. The business of the successful party now is to give the city of New York such good gov? ernment that the people will not desire any change in the future, but should a change come about, no principle is more strongly engrafted in republican dogma than that the majority must rule." This is a good and wise political advice from a successful republican standpoint. If the national democratic administra? tion had exiled from all the depart? ments of the government, as soon as it came into power, the party that elect? ed it would not have sustained such an overwhelming defeat as it did last week. The low price of American farm products is the result of a glutted mar? ket. Too much is produced for home consumption, and foreigners are pro? hibited from buying the surplus by a tariff that forces them to pay for it with scarce gold, instead of with the plentiful 'products of their own coun? tries. But,last week,American farmers either refused to vote, or else cast bal? lots for congressmen in favor of a high tariff, and thereby proved that they are even too stupid to know what is for their own individual welfare. The fact that millions of Russians, rich and poor alike, are still weeping for the death of their as yet unburied Emperor, no matter what penny liners may say to the contrary, is conclusive evidence to all reasonable men that the people of Russia feel they have lost a good and kind ruler. Those fa? miliar with the true condition of Rus? sia know that the criminals sent to Si beria-duriug the reign of the late Em? peror, in other countries would have been puuished with death or imprison? ment for life._ The President is so enamored of the civil service reform law that he has determined to make every body in the government's employ,exceptjPreaident8 and Cabinet officers, subject to its opera? tion, before the expiration of his term; force bills, tariffs, currency and other national and international matters of importance "may flourish or may fade, a breath can make them as a breath has made," but like the everlasting hills and brooks, the mugwump civil service system must go on forever. An association has been organized in Washington for the purpose of se? curing the privilege of suffrage to the people of the District of Columbia. As this is a "free and equal" country, in which special "favors" are granted to none, the object of the association should be attained. The "inestimable" benefits of suffrage are so apparent that the people of the District of Columbia should fight to obtain them, "until the last armed foe expires. - The facts that the democrats sus? tained losses in ali the Southern States last week, and that in eight of them the republicans gained congressmen, should be sufficient of themselves alone, even if there were no others, to refute the entirely groundless republican assertion, that in the South the republicans are allowed neither a free vote nor a fair count. At the recent congressional elections in Ohio, Mr. Coxey, who led his poor, duped and deluded followers to Wash? ington last summer, and then deserted them, received nearly nine thousand votes. And yet there still are people stupid or demagogic enough to cry out, "Vox populi, vox Dei!" The Woman's Christian Temperance Union, at its annual convention in Cleveland, Ohio, yesterday, declared .against corsets, belts, and skirts, and for women members of the police force. Fortunately for the women, the W. C. T. U. cannot change their sex. FROM Wa7hFnGT0N. [Correspondence of the Alexandria G?fwtte.l Washington. Nov. 17,1894. A Tammany democrat here to-day j says Tammany cast one hundred aid thirteen thousand votes at the late elec? tion, but could not have succeeded with the republicans, mugwumps, anti-snap? pers, prohibitionists and saloon, dives, and bawdy house keepers, cranks, the A. P. A., and the churches combined against ic. He said, and named them, that the pastors of only five Catholic churches in the whole city were favorable to Tammany. Congressman Turner of Virginia, was in the city yesterday. He said he wrs fairly elected by a satisfactory majority and is not bothering himself about the contest he hears Mr. Walker, the de? feated republican candidate, intends to make for h's S6at. A Northwest syndicade are here now looking out for lands for farmers who, having grown tired of their inclement section, have determined to come South, and are thinking about settling either in Maryland or Virginia, near the river. They were down in the for? mer State this week, inspecting lands. Assistant U. S. Attorney General Holmes Conrad, of Virginia, says the recent democratic defeat was the legiti? mate result of several causes which, combined, produced apathy and disaf? fection in the democratic party. The express company has such direct and conclusive evidence against the men now under arrest for the train rob? bery at Aquia creek that it will not agree to spare one of them by allowing him to turn State's evidence. It is said here that every republican congressional candidate in the South who was defeated last week, except the three from Maryland, will contest the election of their successful democratic opponents; but it is also said that few, if any, of them will succeed, as the re? publicans are already saying their ma? jority in the House is too large, and as the election of republican congressmen in several of the Southern States, and the reduced democratic majorities in all the others, afford prima facie evi? dence that elections are as fair in the South as in the North. Secretary Herbert has approved the naval court-martial which recently tried Paymaster Cann's clerk, David B. Sayer, at the Norfolk navy yard, found him guilty of embezzling $190, and sentenced him to be imprisoned for two years, and to lose the greater portion of his pay during that time. Congressman Meredith, who was here yesterday, says he has been formally notified that his defeated republican opponent, Mr. McCaull, will contest bis seat. He says he doesn't anticipate any trouble, as the worst than can hap? pen will be an order for another elec? tion, at which his majority will be larger than it was last week. Congressmen-elect Howard of Ala? bama, who is here to-day, says he is informed that the President'* fortune now amounts to four million dollars, and that as he was a poor man when he first came to Washington, he, How? ard, intends to introduce a resolution in Congress demanding an investiga? tion of the means by which so large a fortune was acquired in so short a time. Since November 13, the date of the circular, issued by Secretary Carlisle in? viting bids for the new $50,000,000 bond loan,"the Treasury has lost by the ex? change of gold for Treasury notes and United States notes $1,775,000 in gold from the sub-Treasuries. The with? drawal of gold in New York, yesterday to the extent of $975,000 for which United States notes were presented, has caused Treasury officials to anticipate that it is but the forerunner of large withdrawals of gold at that point,as such notes are redeemable only at Now York or San Francisco. Treasury notes may be redeemed in gold at any sub-Treas? ury, but they are believed to be less generally distributed throughout the country than the United States notes, which are largely held in New York and the East. The President having disciplined Secretaries Gresham and Carlisle and Attorney General Olney, has now ap? plied the whip to Secretary Herbert, and has revoked the latter's appoint? ment of Admiral Walker to the com? mand of the Naval Academy, and did so, it is currently reported, without even consulting the Secretary. But they all take their drubbing with the most servile obsequiousness. John W. Nicholson, of Portsmouth, Va., was to-day appointed inspector of ?team boilers for the Norfolk, Va., dis? trict. Postmaster Warfield, of Baltimore, was in consultation with the Civil Ser? vice Commissioners to-day with refer? ence to the recent promotion of seven watchmen in bis office to higher posi? tions, contrary to the civil service rules.

They were Cleve? land's miserable foreign policy, the hard times and the unpardonable delay of Congress in passing a tariff bill." The ioitial steps looking towards the curtailment of the flour output, by a six-weeks' suspension of the merchant mills of thecouutry, aud the consequent, advance in prices, were taken at a meeting of millers in Chicago yester? day. The cruiser Cincinnati, which left the Brooklyn navy yard at dawn yes? terday, struck a sunken wreck aDd was badly damaged.

Mr. Howard is the author of ''If Christ Came to Congress." A severe earthquake was felt through? out the province of Messina, and also in Calabria yesterday. Much damage was done.

The executive committee of the com? mittee of seventy of New York city have made application to Governor Flower for the assignment of the Attor? ney General or a deputy to prosecute election cases and those against other public officials in that city.

Whitford, which may cause her death, and then turning the revolver on himself, tried three times to put a bullet through his own heart, failing to strike that organ, but inflicting wounds which will undoubtedly cause his death. The shooting was the result of domestic difficulty. When arrested Strait said : "l am sorry this happened, but they drove me to it." All of the persons are of middle age, and have en? joyed the best reputations. Mrs. Strait died last night. The physicians say that Mr. Strait and Mrs. Whitford can? not recover. Important Spring Elections.? Very important elections will be held in Virginia on the fourth Thursday in next May and the result may have an important bearing on the contest next fall. At the spring election officers are to be chosen in every county in the State. Judging from some intimations thrown out yesterday there will be an effort made by the republicans to cap? ture as many of these offices as possible. The republicans hope to effect a fusion with the populists and all other anti democrats. The offices in nearly every county -now are democratic. A*t the elections four years ago the demo? crats made almost a clean sweep. Foi merly the republicans had possession of a good many county offices, but they lost them when Mahoneism began to decline. Seventh Day Adventists.?At the Seventh Day Adventists' conference in session in Washington yesterday, a re? cital in the report of Secretary S. B.

He says that there are S,000 acres of good natural oyster rock on the Atlantic side, where he has just made the sur? vey. Thrown Over a Bridge.?A mys? terious mnrder of a prominent phy? sician occurred at Montgomery, Fay etto county, W. Va., yesterday. Dr. A. C. Aultz was called from his bed to attend wbat was alleged to be an ur? gent case on the opposite side of Morris Creek. At 7 o'clock the doctor had not returned and his family began a search for him. About 9 o'cloclc a man passing over the Morris Creek bridge saw the dead body of the doctor lying on the jagged rocks 50 feet below. An examination showed there had been a terrible struggle on the bridge and that the doctor had been struck on the head several times with a blunt in? strument. The fall to the rocks below broke almost every bone in his body. The only theory for the crime is that friends of persons implicated in the late coal riots put the doctor out of the way to keep him from testifying against them. Two months ago Dr. J. W. Davis, of the same place, was murder? ed from ambush for the same reason. Knights of Labor.?The Knights of Labor are still in session in New Orleans. Sovereign, the Grand Master Workman, has presented his report in which he urges the Assembly to take strong grounds against an increase of the military forces of the nation and and that they advocate a decrease in the regular army and the abolition of the State militia, "for from them are coming to the surface tbe sentiments of a military despotism."

PrizeFights.?And now Alexandria is being advertised as a place where brutal prize fights are and can be held without let or hindrance. Is this rep? utation calculated to advance tbe city's material, to say nothing of its moral, interest? .Is there no mayor, common? wealth's attorney, nor police? Possi? bly, as the men who engage in these "sports" are but brutes, and those-who witness them but little better, the "So? ciety for Prevention of Cruelty to Ani? mals" had better step in and suppress these exhibitions.

I TO-DAY'S TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. Fittzimmons Kills his Partner. Syracuse, N. Y., Nov. 17.?At the Opera House last evening during the exhibition bout between the would-be champion of the world, Robert Fitzsim mons, and Con Riordan, his sparring partner, the latter was struck by Fitz? simmons and the result of the blow was death. Riordan, it is claimed, had been drinking heavily, but dispite this he was allowed to enter into the bout. There were a few exchanges and then Fitzsimmons with a quick pass landed ou Riordan's jaw with his right, and the latter reeled, fell to bis knees and lopped over like a dead man. Two physicians endeavored to bring him back to consciousness, but despite every effort to revive him he died at 3:30 o'clock this morning. Fitznmmons when informed of Riordan's death, was much affected and burst into sobs. He has been locked up to await the action of the coroner. Fitzsimmons says that he noticed after the first exchange of blows that Reordan was not right. The blow he delivered that caused the trouble was, he says, as light as he could make it, merely slapping him with the back of the hand. He at? tributes his death to his poor condition brought on by incessant drinking. Fitzsimmons was taken before County Judge Northrup at noon to-day and his bail was fixed at $10,000, to answer to the charge of manslaughter in the first degree. In the court room Fitzsimmons said he would not have killed Riordan for $10,000 and then broke down in tears. He will be arraigned this after? noon, released on bail and appear at the performance at Jacob's Opera House this afternoon and evening. Foreign NeW8.

The residence of Hiram Wheeler, at Chicago, was entered by burglars last night and about $5,000 worth of jewel? ry and costly diamonds stolen. The thieves were alarmed while at their work and Mr. Wheeler, clad only in a thin night robe, chased them out into the street, but was unable to catch them.

There is more or less feeling between the private exhibitors and the professionals as the latter have cap? tured a large share of the ribbons this year. However, many gentlemen breeders have captured enough blue ribbons, and also reds and yellows, to encourage them in their efforts to make America lead tbe world in breeding horses. John Q. A.
