Frankfort, Ky Deo. 3. "There Is
nothing doing now, but Just wait- un

the expression of both aides, and. it
soma op the sit nation in about aa
accurate a manner as la possible at
the present time.. The town Id very

A detachment of Taylor admirers
from eastern Kentucky came to town
yesterday under the apprehension
that the work of the canvassing
board was to commence then as
originally intended. The party num
bered about sixty and all of them
were very quiet, it being hard to in
duce any of them to talk. They an
nounced that they had come to see
the rights of General Taylor re
spected and that all was well. They
all seemed to be well able to uphold
in vigorous fashion whatever cause
they might champion, but gave no
evidence of a desire to look for
Neither Gov. Bradley nor Adjt.
Gen. Collier was disposed to speak of
any arrangements they may have
made for the preservation of order
in case of trouble. Both declared
themselves confident that there
would be no trouble, feeling sure that
calm minds in both parties would
prevent any extreme steps by either
''We have had practically to reor
ganize the state guard," said Gen.
Collier, "on account of the demoral
ization created in it by the Spanish
war and now we are ready for any
thing, just as the guard of the state
has always been. There will be no
trouble though, I ieel sure of that."
As the time draws near for the is
suing of the gubernational certificate
of election, the Goebel men lose none
of their confidence, if a willingness
to put up their money is a test. Two
prominent democratic politicians
who already had wagered S500 that
Goebel will be the next governor of
Kentucky, went to the takers of the
republican end of the proposition
with offers to double the bets. One
Taylor man declined; the other said
he would think it over.

Will Oppose His Release
Guthrie, O. T., Dec. 3. Governor
Barnes has received word that Ira N
Terr ill, who is in the Kansas peniten
tiary under twelve years' sentence
for killing a man here in 1892, has ap
plied to United States Judge William
C. Hook for release on a writ of ha
beas corpus. The governor immedi
ately employed Senator A. H. Hous
ton to go to Leavenworth and repre
sent the interests of the Territory.
Terrill was a member of the first ter
ritorial legislature and author of the
capital punishment law, and, strange
ly enough, he was the first man to be
convicted under his own act. Terrill
was sentenced to be hanged, but se
cured a release on a writ of habeas
corpus, and,, in a retrial in Noble
county, on changeof venue from this
county, was found guilty of man

Mr! DeArmond conducted a quiet,
dignified canvass for the leadership.
He made no promises and was given
support in many states where the op
position against him was very strong.
For four ballots he led the field in
the number of votes received, and at
the last compelled a combination of
Bailey's personal following with the
democrats of Tammany hall to defeat
him. Starting with 39 votes, Mr. De
Armond held his own and gained one
or two votes on every ballot. At the
last he had 47. with Bankhead and
Sulzer out of it and their strength
plumped to Richardson. The Ten
ntsseean received 90 votes.

An American Postoffice in Paris.
An interesting feature of the Paris
exposition will be a model American
postoffice. Arrangements have b e i
made with the French postal authori
ties by which mails for Americans
in Paris can be sent to this office in
stead of going through the regular
channels. In this way much time
will be saved in the distribution of
the United States mails. A room
about the size ordinaiily used for a
branch postonlce- will be fitted up
with all modern postal appliances.
Americans visiting Paris during the
exposition will be able to transact
the ordinary business of the post
office in the way they are accustom
ed to do at home. New York Even
