Inmates of the Sailors’ Home Must Go Home
to Vote.
New York, Oct. 11.—Justloe Gaynor,
sitting in Long Island City, filed a deci
sion yesterday which disfranchises, so
far as the island is concerned, between
900 and 1000 men. The decision practi
cally wipes an entire election district
Of the town of Castleton. The action in
which the decision is rendered was
brought by the attorney-general at the
instance of Good Government clubsmen
on Staten island.
Thomas H. Meyers, an inmate of the
Sailors’ Home, at Snug Harbor, was
ohosen as an election officer in Snug
Harbor and the little adjoining territory,
which makes up the Ninth election dis
trict of the town of Castleton. The ac
tion sought to oust Meyers from his po
sition as an lnspeotor of elections in the
Ninth district. Justice Gaynor found
that the inmates of the home cannot vote
there, as they still retain their old homes
from which they originally came, and
mu3t vote from there. Both republican
and democratic leaders when seen last
night said they were glad the case had
been decided as it had.

Claims to Be a Voodoo Doctor—Avers* to
Bones and Chickens.
There is quite a freak in the city in
the person of an eccentric negro youth,
whose odd delusion attracts considerable
attention on the streets. He says that
he is a voodoo doctor, and that he is
a South American negro, from "no town
in particular**' The appearances are
that he is from a remote region of Es
cambia county, Alabama. He claims a
supernatural power, which will enable
him to remove warts, corns, bunions,
oto., with a pass of his hand. He ac
knowledges an aversion to "chickens”
and "bloody bones." _

The President Has Started for Washington in
the Steam Yacht Oneida—He Will
Fish on the Way.
Buzzard's Bay. Mass., Oct. 11.—The
president has concluded his vacation, so
far as Gray Gables is concerned, and
left at. 5:15 thij afternoon on the steam
yftoht Oneida as the guest of Comn*>dore
Benedict. ^Private Secretary Thurber ac
companied them. Mrs. Cleveland, the
chulldren and other members wf the fam
ily will leave next Tuesday in a special
car. The president’s entire journey to
Washington will be made on the Oneida,
a trip never before made, as the presi
dent generally sails only as far as New
York, where a train ih taken for Wash
ington. They will proceed leisurely along
the sound and may stop and tlsh if the
water is favorable. The president plans
not to arrive Iri Washington before Mon
day. In speaking of his vacation the
president said it had been a most enjoy
able one. The weather for the most part
Tias been exceedingly pleasant and fish
ing in both fresh and salt water was nev
er better. There have been compara
tively few callers of a political or office
seeking character and the president has
had most of the time to himself. One
thing is certain, and it was corroborated
by Private Secretary Thurber today, that
Is. in no time of the seasons past has the
president been called upon to attend to
such a volume of government matter as
this year. The president has enjoyed ex
cellent health this summer and lie plain

in splendid condition to take up business
affairs at Washington.
He and Fitz Are Afraid of Getting Into
San Antonio, Tex., Oct. XI.—Private ad
vices were received here from Austin to
day that the Travis grand jury would
return an indictment against Corbett
and Fttzsifnmons. Immediately upon re
ceiving this informsiCon Manager Brady
decided to get Corbett out of the state
as soon as possible so as to place him out
of reach of the Texas authorities. Brady
left for Hot Springs, where he will ascer
tain for himself whether or not the tight
can be pulled off there and if he finds it
can he will secure training quarters for
the champion and the entire party will
be removed to the new battle ground
within the next few days.
Corbett was very despondent over the
outlook today. The unlooked for opposi
tion of Governor Clark makes it very
doubtful whether the fight can be pulled
off at Hot Springs. The champion said
this evening:
•'Fitz is preparing to get out of the
state to avoid the possibility of arrest,
and I do not want to remain here and be
placed in the clutches of the law while
he goes free. I am tired of this persistent
persecution on the part of Governor Cul
berson and it is probable that I will re
move my training quarters to Hot
Springs within the next few days. This
is a splendid training place and I shall
regret to leave."
Steve O’Donnel, who is matched to
fight Peter Maher, is confinrd to his hed
with sickness. The complaint is not se
rious and he expects to resume his train
ing tomorrow.
Pitz Won’t Leave.
Corpus Christ!, Tex., Oct. 11.—When
asked today when he would leave here
Fitzsimmons said: “I will not leave here
until the four weeks are up unless I am
compelled to.” Julian will probably re
turn tonight and state definitely what
will be done.

It Wrought Tremendous Damage Along the
Lower California Coast.
Washington, Oct. 11.—A special from
Guayarnas, Mex., says that advices from
Pacific ports of Mexico and ports on the
west side of the gulf of California show
that the hurricane which sw'ept north
ward during September 30 to October 3
caused great damage to property a®d
shipping, and that a number of lives were
lost. The telegraph wires were prostra
ted and information comes In by degrees
as people arrive from below.
The hurricane crossed the isthmus of
Tehuantepec, swept up the coast into the
gulf of California, doing great damage.
The hurricane was accompanied by a
deluge of water, whioh completed the
ruin the wind had wrought. At Topolo
bambo all the houses of the American
colony were greatly damaged and the
custom house was wrecked. The Ahomy
rlyer overflowed its banks and destroyed
sugar plantations and sugar mills thirty
miles away from the channel of the
stream. The entire cane crop of the state
of Sinaloa, as far as reported, is com
pletely ruined and tho sugar plant and re
fineries at Ahnne, the property of Mark
Sherwood of Chicago and his associates,
were demolished. The sugar crop of the
Yaqul river is badly damaged.

Trying for a Record.
New York, Oct. 11.—If the new line
steamer St. Paul does as well for the rest
of her voyage as she did for the first
twenty-two hours after leaving Sandy
Hook she is likely to break the record
between thts port and Southampton.
The steamer Fuerst Bismarck, which
came into port today from Hamburg,
exchanged signals with the St. Paul 415
miles out. and the new steamer was go
ing along to the eastward with graat
speed. The sea was comparatively
smooth at the time the Bismarck passed
the yankee steamer and with a westerly
wind, the rig favored the new craft.
Some of the passengers of the German
boat Bismarck say that she must have
-been doing over twenty-one knots an
hour when seen. The Mail and Express
says that it has developed that when
Captain Jameson left this port on
Wednesday he had instructions to smush
the record if he could.

And a Valise of Mrs. Carson's Stolen at Blou|it
Springs—No Arrests Made.
The Louisville and Nashville depot at
Blount Springs was burglarized between
midnight and day yesterday morning
and a valise belonging to Mrs. Dr. Carson
of Bessemer and a few other things
The entrance to the depot was effected
by prizing open a door to the freight
The burglary was reported to the su
perintendent’s office In this city and De
tective Dave Brown went to Blount
Springs to Investigate the matter and If
possible apprehend the guilty parties.
He soon found a clue which led to the ar
rest of Joseph Royal and Prank Bingen,
both colored, whom he brought back with
him to Birmingham and placed In the
county Jail.
They Made Many Recommendations and
Suggestions and Adjourned.
Richmond, Va., Oct. 11.—The state good
roads convention adjourned this after
noon after adopting the report of the
committee on good road improvements.
This report says:
“We favor the adoption of a road by
which stale aid will be extended to the
Improvement of the main roads under
equitable conditions, by which the coun
ties shall be allowed to issue bonds for
the permanent Improvement of the main
roads under proper conditions and re
strictions; by whloh both state and coun
ty convicts will be employed in Improv
ing the public roads; by which the road
work will be placed under the control of
boards of supervisors, or of special road
boards of the respective counties, and
by which the actual supervision of the
road work will be entrusted to county
engineers, thus connecting the authority
and responsibility and insuring intelli
gent supervision."
me report then recommends in detail
a state tax of 6 per cent on the $100 val
uation of real and personal property for
a state road fund; that a similar amount
bo appropriated l>y the supervisors of
each county for permanent' road Im
provement; that a state highway com
mission be appointed by the governor,
and that the present laws In regard to
graduates In engineering education at
the state expense be amended so that
such graduates may serve as county en
gineers for two years when employed by
the board of supervisors Instead of teach
ing for two years.
Provision is also made as to the form
of petition by land owners for road Im
provement assessment against property
owners in proportion to benefits derived,
etc., the amount to be paid out of the
state fund.
The president of the convention was
authorized to appoint a committee to
prepare a bill in accordance with the sug
gestions in the report for presentation to
the next general assembly.

"It's all a fake,” said Mr. Will Pickens,
in speaking to a State Herald reporter of
the articles which appeared in the Mont
gomery papers and specials which were
sent out from that city in regard to a
tri-match race between Warren of this
city, Lum of Montgomery and Parquette
of Mobile, “It’s all a fake, pure and
simple. Neither Lum nor Parquette
want to meet Warren again. Because
Warren met with several accidents Lum
won three, state championships in Mont

Warren won five open races from these
so-called champions was a caution. War

is simply to get free advertising in news

Ella T. was choice at even money against,

that she could not win and was fairly
beaten in the second heat by Colonel
Thorntdn. Those who played the gray
mare, thinking their money lost, now
hacked the colonel with disastrous re
sults, as Ella T. raced like a new horse,
coming with renewed vigor from the sev
enth furlong home, winning by half a
length from Colonel Thornton til 2:10. In
the next two heats she outrooten a new
horpe, each time landing a clever victory
and her first race for the season.

Health Officer Woodward estimates that
at least 600 cases are under treatment in
the district today. For the four days of
this week eleven deaths from typhlod fe
ver were reported, and no doubt some
deaths reported due to kindred com
plaints really are said to be from typhoid.
For the first week ending September
27, there were twenty-one deaths. New
York city, with seven times the popula
tion of Washington, reported only seven
teen typhoid deaths for the same period,
and most of the cities of the size of Wash
ington reported not more than two or
three deaths, if any at all. The epidemic
is attributed to the low stage of the water
in the Potomac river, which constitutes
the city’s supply, and the use ot well
water in families. The disease is as gen
erally distributed in the best sections of
the city as in the poorer quarters.
