It May Iteaeh 16,000—Speaker Reed's Plurality Nearly Keuche* 5,000 and Is Larger Than lie Ever Received liefere. Chairman Manley's Message. Augusta, Me., Sept. 9.—Chairman Man ley, of the Republican state committee, Bent early this morning the following dis patch to President Harrison: "Maine gives the largest Republican majority thrown in an off year since 18t!fi, and a larger majority than given in a presi dential contest since 1 rtf 10, with the single excep tions of 1884 aud 1 8 8 8. Governor Burleigh is re f elected by a plu rality exceeding 15,000. Speaker Heed is re-elected , jMgmma/vfuÆ the largest plu rality lie lias ever vM/'Mihv' J/Wi received, exceed V- I it v iug 4,500. Repre sentatives Ding ley, Boutelle and Mllllken are re-elected ty majorities ranging from 3,000 to 3,000. The Fine Tree state indorses your ail min ist rat ion and remains firm in its advocacy of protection to American industries and American labor." T. B. HU ED. Reed's Plurality Nearly 5,000. Portland, Me., Sept 9.—Forty-eight out of fifty-three towns in the First district give Heed 16,091, Frank, 11,339. Heed's plurality, 4,752, against 8,439 in 1888. The remaining towns are small and will not materially change these figures. Cumber land county » incomplete, but no doubt the Republican county ticket is elected by pluralities ranging from 1,500 to 2,000. A Largs Republican Gain. Two hundred and ten towns give Bur leigh 40,385; Thompson, 27,427; Clark, 891; scattering, 958. The same towns in 1888 gave a Republican vote of 50,351; Demo cratic, 87,344; Prohibition, 1,276; scatter ing, 1,089. Republican plurality, 13,508, against 13,007; Republican gain, 501. If the towns to hear from fail off in the same proportion the final vote should stand: Republican about 94,500; Democratic, 45, 500; scattering, 8,000; total, 113,000. In 1886, the last off year, the vote stood: Re publican, 88,991; Democratic, 55,989; Pro hibition, 3,898; scattering, 93. Republican plurality, 13,702. This year the plurality will lie about 19.00C, a gain of 5,500 and 1,000 ahead of the presidential year. Tlie Prohibition Vota. The Prohibition vote comes united with the scattering or omitted, so it is classed ns scattering and may be considerably larger. The members of congress are all ro-elected by large majorities, Mr. Reed's being doubled. The county officers mostly Republican, the senators are proba bly all Republican, as in the last legisla ture, and the representatives must stand full as strongly Republican—namely, 125 Republicans to 26 Democrats. «ni The Vote in Portland. Portland gives Burleigh 3,673; Thomp son, 2,140; Clark, 158; scattering, 36; Heed, 8,517; Frauk, 8,188; scattering, lia Reed's plurality is 1,563, the largest over given a member for this district. One Republican representative to the legislature (Cunning ham) is defeated, Guptill (Deni.) winning by 0 votes. I' 31 r. Ueed »peaks. There was a big rally at the city hall last night and Congressman Reed spoke. He said: "I suppose we never shall know what it is to possess the earth entirely, but I think that we have got rather an adequate notion of it after all. If any one of you think or I imagine I know words enough to express adequately this situation ho does mors honor to my courage thau to good sense. N. my Y ou and I have held many such meetings all alone to ourselves, bat what we have doue today will go far be yond this district and this state. "Hitherto I have had only to return to you my personal thanks for your kindness to one of your fellow townsmen. I believe I have a right now to give you the thanks of hundreds of thousands of good Repub licans all over the United States of Amer ica, for your faithful work has deserved much more than I dare to say to you. He Was Surprised. "Every one of you knew that the un precedented plurality that was given two years ago was in some measure due merely to locul causes, and for my part I did not anticipate that our uttermost axertions would enable us to repeat what was done then. son ers of Tbe are is the S. a in tore jon the the ined loid. 4 vas locinl he ire ian was "An off year always tell on the majority party, especially after such a splendid ample as that of two years ago, and a reas onable majority or plurality might have been widely misunderstood in this country. I confess myself not to have been free from anxiety upon that point, but, my friends, my wildest dream has been more than aiized. I know I do not in the least regard this matter as a personal victory, I know that it transcends that and I am thoroughly glad that it does. I am thoroughly glad that the vote of my distriut will be an re tentive and encouragement and the bringer of hope to the Republicans all over this country, for we are engaged now in as great a battle as ever the Republican party fought. • v M Lifted te a Great Height. "It is as much our duty today as it ever «was in the dark days of the war to carry high the bannerof Republicanism, of civil ization and of progress, and, my friends, you have lifted it today to a great height, it rests with the people of the United States now to see that it is carried for ward. Y'ou have doue your duty; now let all hope and pray that they wilt do theirs irora one end of the country to the other." Mr. Reed closed by calling for three :heers for the Republican party, and they were given with vigor. JS XUiode Inland Politics.

No Bounty for Sugar Made In Tills Coun try from Imported Sugar Helped Out—Senators Molasses—Rlnpli Charge Discrimination Against the South. Y\ AailfNGTON, Sept. 9.—The Senate agreed to the conference report on the river and harbor bill. During tint debate on the tariff bill Mr. Plumb expressed the belief that under it there would lie a deficit of $150,000,000. amend mente to the sugar schedule adopted, the vote on the rate imposing duties on sugars above No. 13 Dutch stand aril being 89 to 12. Mr. Frye's amendment giving a bounty on all sugar made from molasses was rejected without a division. The senate's amendment increasing the duty on sugars above No. 10 to six-tenths of a cent was agreed to. A lioniity for Mupln Sugar. The finance committee'» amendment to include maple sugar among those for which a bounty is to lie paid was favored by Messrs. Edmunds and Blair. Mr. Car lisle declared himself opposed to all sugar houuties. The amendment was agreed to —yea u , SO; nays, 23. All the other amend ments relatiug to maplo sugar werengroed to, and the time fixed for filing notice« in connection with claims for bounty fixed prior to July enen year. The finance committee'11 was i instead of Jan. 1 of Mr. Frye's Proposed Amendment. Mr. Fryo offered an amendment to . , , P*F « bounty of one oent a pound on sugar from imported molasses. This was a targe in dustry which gave employment to 400 ves sels and paid more than $800,000 a year freight to them. There was also, he said, an extensive cooperage connected with the business, but without a bounty the who!« industry would be destroyed by the bill a« absolutely as if it were struck by Ught ning. He failed to see why producers of sugaprfrom molasses were not as much titled to a bounty as the producers of gar from cane, beet or sorghum. Mr. Aldrich said the principle on which bounty was to be paid on cane, beet or sorghum sugar was that eucoumgement was to lie given to domestic agricultural industries. The proposition uow offered was practically to pay a bounty of five cents a gallon on all molasses imported into the United States. The question was further discussed by Mr. Hale, Mr. Hoar and Mr. Kvarts In favor of the amendment, aud by Mr. Plumb, Mr. Hlscock, Mr. Allison, Mr Sherman and Mr. Gibson against it. One of the arguments made against the amend ment was that with a bounty of a cent a pound on molasses sugar all the sugar from Cuba would lie imported in the form of molasses. Mr. Gibson and Mr. Enstis argued against the whole policy of sugar bounties, and In favor of maintaining the existing system of duties on sugar. The latter declared that he could not vote for the bounty on business because he believed it to be wrong in principle, framed in in sincerity and equally unjust to the suga; pi' -3 7i i i'Fä oî jjôaisîSuà àiiu to tue govern ment of the United States. Finally the vote was taken and Mr. Frye's amendment was rejected without the yeas and nays. Charges of Sectionalism. Mr. Manilerson offered an amendment for the admission free of duty of machin ery for the manufacture of beet sugar, and for the refunding of duties collected such machinery since Jan. 1,1890. Adopt ed. Mr. Eustis moved to amend the amendment so os to extend it to machin ery for beet and sorghum sugar. Hejected Yeas, 43; nay, it. Mr. Reagan com plained of exhibitions of sectionalism in the bill as illustrated in the Manderson amendment and iu the high duties im posed on cotton ties, while binding twine was put on the free list. Hut it was use less, he said, to expect justice. Mr. Blair reproved Mr. Reagan for imputations upon the northern people and upon the government to which he owed Ills life. Mr. Gorman said that Mr. lteagan's as sertion was true, and Mr. Blair's taunt was not manly. Mr. Aldrich gave notice that be would (for the committee) offer amendment that the bill shall take effect on Oct. 1. 1890. en su ■>!, What Mi» South Received. Mr. Allison replied to the remarks of Mr Reagan and Mr. Gorman accusing the finance committee and the Republican senators of discrimination against the south. H* denied that there had been any such idoa entertained. Had not $0,000,900 been appropriated for the purpose of trans ferring the trade front the eastern board to the most important gulf port of Texas? Did not tho finance committee pro pose to protect the woo! of Texas—the sec ond or third wool growing state of the Union? He himself had undertaken to protect the hides of Texas, and he believed that the senator (Mr. Reagan) had voted against that protection. Mr.|Reagnn denied the allegation. Mr. Allison stated that the senator from Mary land had said that there was not a line or a page in the hill that protected indus tries in the southern states. Where (Mr. Allison asked) was the coal of Maryland and of West Virginia? Was not that pro teeted? And where was the sugar of Lou isiana and Texas? Did not that have a bounty of two cents a pound? The anges of Louisiana and Florida were bet ter protected under the pending bill than they were under existing law. If there had been any discrimination it had been in favor of the south. As to cotton tics they had followed other manufactures of iron and steel, and as to cotton bagging it was as much used for the potatoes of New York and for the onions of Iowa as for the cotton crop of the south. A Midnight Seasiun. The senate did not adjourn until after midnight. Mr. Kvarts wished to modify the committee's reciprocity amendment ns to make it the duty of the president, when satisfied that a country from which sugar, molasses, tea, coffee or hides are imported maintains a policy that is recip rocally unequal and unreasonable, to com municate tho facts to congress so that du ties may be imposed upon such articles. He did not favor empowering the presi dent to act without the direct authority of cougress. ,, or the the 23 -, A Fatal Shooting Affray. Fort Worth, Tex., Sept. 0.—Ed Kenne dy, a gambler, shot and killed Farris Mos ley, a leading merchant, last night, as the latter was getting into u wagon. James Mosley, a brother of tho deceased, at once bunged shots with Keunedy aud the exc murderer was shot in t he side. The wound is likely to prove fatal. Kennedy had ac cused Farris Mosley o£ intimacy with Mrs. Kenned v THEY FOUGHT FOR A MAN. Two New .Jersey Young Women Indulge in a Iteniurkiitile Haiti«. Newark. N. J., Sept. 0.—Mary Herbert and Mabel Brown, daughters of prominent residents of Pleasantvllle, N. J., fought a priza fight in a sixteen foot ring pitched in an old Iwirn on the outeklrts of that village at 3 o'clonk Sunday morning. The cause of the light was rivalry for 1 ho attentions of a young man named Georgo Woodward. Thirty-eight rounds were fought, in which both girls were severely punished, but uulthtir hud th« advantage and the con* test was declared a draw. The combatants were stripped to the waist, and every part of their bodies exposed to view bore traces of punishment. The referee, seconds and spectators were all females, friends of the principals. Woodward has sinco declared that he will have nothing t* do with either of the girls. Sophia Barry was the timekeeper. Mary Woodward seconded Mamie Herbert and Baura Brown acted in the same capacity for Maliel Brown. Two latitors in the corners threw a flick ering light on tile queer scene. Maliel led off flrst with a blow straight from the shoulder. Mamie dodged this and let fly one In return with her right. It did not land, for Mabel got away too quick. There was blood in the eyes of iioth girls and they struck out viciously. Blow followed blow and the girls began to get winded. Time was called and the girls retired to their corners. Whou time was called again they stepped up briskly and went at it hammer and tongs. They punched each others' fair shoulders for twenty-seven rounds and then they got mad and clinched. They clawed, scratch ed and pulled out hair. Two tigresses could not have been more wicked. The air was full of black locks and golden tresses, and blood was flowing in, little rivulets down a white background. The girls continued to light for thirty eight rounds. Then they wore so exhausted that neither could lift a hand, and both were badly punished. Sophia Barry finally called time and declden the light a draw. Then the girls all shook hands and secrecy. The two fighters were taken home and put to bod. Doctors weTe called in and their bruises hound up. The story of the'disgraceful affair has leaked out and community is thoroughly shocked.

After the ■ le best years of his life were spent in his efforts for the amel ioration of his native land, und his great struggles, heroic services and sacrifices have made their mark upon the history of his time. Although Mr. O'Reilly was not a resident of this state it is fitting that his memory should lie respected and his deeds commemorated in every part of this public. I speak the sentimontof this great, commonwealth when I assort that the Em pire state would be proud of John Boyle O'Reilly us a son. His memory will be dear to his couutrymen everywhere and dear to all the American people." Speeches were also made by Governor Abbott, of New Jersey; Judge Fitzgerald and others.

Sept. 9.—Lightning struck the offices of the Pennsylvania Railroad compauy at noon, and iu a few minutes the building was abluze. The building was badly gutted before tbe fire could be extinguished. Great damage was also doue by water. The loss, which cannot bo estimated at present, will he heavy. There was great excitement for a time among the hundreds of clerks employed in the building, but all escaped, though there were several narrow escapes from suffocation. All railroad business is tem porarily suspended. The lightning en tered the telegraph room, In which stored tons of paper, and the fire commu - nicating with these gained great head way. The bolt of lightning entered the building by means of the telegraph wires. The books, recent records, etc., of the company were saved with difficulty, but a large number of documents and old rec owis were burned. The residence of George McClellan was also struck by lightning. Mrs.' Margaret Otto was knocked sense less and has not yet recovered conscious ness.
