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.

[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.

Va., was to-day appointed inspector of

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?

ings. The report showed a member?
ship of S5i in the United States.

firmed the rumor that the congressman
would retire from the House at the end
of the term for which he has just been
chosen but he was unable to say wheth

Capt. J. B. Baylor, of the United

Thrown Over a Bridge.?A mys?
terious mnrder of a prominent phy?

A. C. Aultz was called from his bed to

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.

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.
