A FAKIR IN TROUBLE.
Fakirs flock to fairs, the present one is
no exception. Some two dozen tables
are scattered over the grounds, where
the proprietors and their cuppers keep
up a continual vocal fusi'.ade on the
crowds. All of them claim that their
particular sport Is the "fairest game on
the grounds." There had been some lit?
tle trouble between the fakirs and their
patrons before, but to-day one of them
wan seen by an oilleer. Hazel Wood was
knocked down by a fakir, who was nr

$6.10 by Justlee Kley.

JOHN S. WISE.
An able political speech from a Re?
publican stand point was delivered
here by Hon. John S. Wise Wednesday
evening. Mr. Wise's speech was inter?
spersed with a number of guod anec?
dotes, while brilliant flashes of wit pre?
served an even current of merriment
among Democratic auditors. Of course
the speaker tried to belittle Mr. Bryan
and the Democratic party, while he
spoke of President Cleveland in the
most respectful manner and accorded
him the highest praise for the course he
pursued during the Chicago strike. Re?
ferring to the factional tight in this dis?
trict Mr. Wise said that instead of
cracking chinches they should be load?
ing cannons. Continuing, the speaker
said that when the time of receiving pat?
ronage comes 1 will be there and I will
see that dagger users in these petty
party destroying fights shall be barred.
At a late hour Dr. Richard Wise was
introduced. He had but little time to
touch briefly upon the factional fight,

make him retire. In conclusion the can?
didate charged the county with not using
the money received for campaign pur?
poses In the Interest of the campaign.

Rome, Oct. 22.?Princess Helene of
Montenegro, the affianced bride of the
Prince of Naples, 'Whose marriage to the

by members of her family to be present

and the Conn: of Turin. When the train
stopped the Prince of Naples, who was
escorting his fiance, assisted her to
alight. Queen M.arghareta wa3 the first
to greet her, kissing her four times.
The progress of the Princess Helene
j through the streets from the station to
the Quirlnal was a veritable ovation.
Fully 300.000 cheering people lined the
route, and the rroops In front of them at
times found great difficulty in restrain?
ing their enthusiasm sufficiently to keep
them within bounds. The Princess be?
came greatly excited at the grandeu
of her reception and several times shed
tears. The party reached the Quirlnal

Richmond, Va., Oct. 22.?(Special.)?
Some of the Republican leaders to-day
admitted that they had engaged de?
tective.- for use in Virginia on election
day. Some of them will reach Rich?
mond next week, and will be assigned to
work. The purpose In having these
men hero Is stated to be 'to secure evi?
dence of fraud if there Is any fraud com?
Mr. Wilson, in charge of the Demo
crltlo speakers, .said to-day that he had
heard upon pretty good authority that
already a great many detectives are at
work in the southside counties.
CAPTAIN LAMB IS CERTAIN.
I hnd a talk to-day with Captain John
Lamb, the Democratic nominee for Con- j
gress in this district. He said he bo- '
llevcd the election in thLs district would
be conducted Just as fairly as possible.
"I have told all of my friends," said he,
"to do nothing the honesty of which can
be questioned. My election is absolu.ely
certain, and it Is my earnest desire that
no act shall be committed that will give
my opponent any ground upon which
to base a contest.. I have been all over
the dl.-uict and a large majority of the
voters are lor me."
It Is not likely that the Republicans
will get up any more big meetings here
during the canvass. They are holding
several small ones every night. The at?
titude of the Eahen-Mltchell following
is causing the Republican leaders con- |
sidcrable uneasiness. Bahen and Ml.ch-1
ell a:e holding meetings every night In
Jackson Ward, and are "roasting" Al?
lan, Waddlll. and Brady. The trouble is
that the Jackson Ward politicians have
been Ignored entirely by those in charge
of the canvass, and they do not like the
Idea at ifll. Their discomen; is having
its effect upon the negro voters.
The Republicans or some of them, be?
lieve that Lew1.? will carry Richmond,
and they aie betting money on the re?
sult. In most cases they demand odds
of two to one.
TWO DEMOCRATIC MEETINGS.
The Demucr.its had two meetings here
to-night. Mr. Btllson Hutch Ins address?
ed a large crowd in Old Market H;?'.'
and Messrs. Charles M. Wallace. Jr.,
and D. C. Richardson .spoke In Sanger
Hall. To-morrow night W. R. Alexan?

AN HISTORIC FLAG.
There was an interesting ceremony at

After a fashion Mr. Abner Goode ate
a live electric wire veste; day afternoon
and lives. Mr. Goode, who is a young
man employed nt the Chesapeake and
Ohio ofllces on Broad street, rode down
that thoroughfare at 2:25 o'clock. At
Eighteenth street he came in contact
with a live electric wire. He then lost
sclousness and he did not know any?
thing for at least .ten minutes later
when he came to an Italian fruit stand
near by by. Then he found gathered
around him among others .Mr. Frank
Cunningham, Jr., who took him home.
A reporter found Mr. Goode nt hit

charge of Dr. Garcin. lie was lying In
bed arid It was with difficulty that the
reporter made him understtnd what tin
latter wanted to know. Said Mr. Goode:
"I left my home at ten minutes of time
to return to work. 1 was going nt a live?

I reached the hill. I recall seeing seve?
ral men at work on a wire nt Eighteenth

Eighteenth street. There .they tell me
rhat 1 tumbled off my wheel a- if dead."
Regarding Mr. Goode's deafness the
doctor Is able to expreju no opinion.
He may or may not recover his hearing.
There is great hope among his friends
that he will suffer no ill effects of the
