The Advertiser said editorially this morning: , “There is a new' paper at Troy, the Clip per. It announces that the silver issue •will be made a leading feature of the pa per. One of its paragraphs is thus: “ ‘All the populists are for free silver— not one of them opposed to it. This can not be said of any other party.’ Then ■why not join the peoples' party? It is fair, therefore, to assume that the Clippfer is a populist paper Its question is re spectfully referred to the Birmingham State Herald.” The Journal replies this afternoon as follows: “The Advertiser has frequently said practically the same thing. It has per sisten • asserted that only populists were for free silver. It has also urged that free silver advocates should join the populists. If this is evidence of the populistic tendencies of the new paper at Troy is it not also an evidence of the Advertiser's populistic tendencies?" Hawley on New York Elections. Walter L. Hawley, who is known to all of the old citizens of Birmingham as the swiftest reporter of the old boom day3, wires the Journal from New York today as follows: “Election day is warm and clear in this city and state. A heavy vote will be polled. The Australian blanket ballot is being- voted for the first time, and proves much less confusing than was antici pated. Voters have little trouble and vote in less time than under the old sys tem (of ballots. Republicans have no hope of carrying this city. Tammany will win by 30.000 or more plurality. It Is expected that the republican state ticket will be elected by a small majority. Democrats expect to control the next state senate, but will lose the house, the local fusion ticket being badly cut by straight republicans. “W. L. HAWLEY, “Evening Sun Office.” The Trotting Ordinance Repealed. The board of aldermen last nlg^ht re pealed the recently enacted ordinance re quiring the fire department to answer calls in a trot instead of In a gallop.

Railroad Officials Meet Representatives of the Louisville and Nashville, the Plant and the Georgia and Alabama railroads met here today and formulated specifications for the loading and shipping of lumber.

Washington, Nov. 5.—Owing to the ab sence from the city of a majority of the members of the cabinet, there was no meeting of that body today. The presi dent did not come to the White House. President Cleveland is supposed to be spending election day squirrel shooting. This statement is upon circumstantial ev idence. No official announcement of the fact has been made, but Mr. Cleveland is absent from the White House and bis companion on the squirrel hunting ex pedition is also missing. Secretary Herbert hag rejected the recommendation of the bureau chiefs that additional penalties be Imposed on contractors for the over weight of hulls of vessels and failure to deliver plans for armor plate within the time specl tied in the contract. Chief Naval Constructor Hlchborn dis agreed with the other bureau chiefs on these propositions and argued against them before Secretary Herbert. He called the attention of the secretary to the fact that the contractors at present had three penalties—one for failure to complete a vessel in given time, another for the over weight of engines and a, third for failure to give required speed. These were as much, he claimed, as they could bear. If additional penalties, such as proposed, were adopted it would prevent many per sons from bidding for naval work. The secretary agreed with Constructor Hich horn and refused to approve the addition al penalties recommended. W. C. T. U, CONGRESS Interesting Addresses "fey Distinguished Ladies.

He Has Successfully Explored Africa From the Lakes to the East Coast Through a New Country. Philadelphia, Nov. 5.—A cablegram was received in this city last evening from Dr. Donaldson Smith, dated Aden, bearing the one word "successful.” This news established the safety of the plucky Philadelphian, who for the past year and a half has been exploring the wilds of eastern Africa, and at the same time puts an end to the doubt as to his safety, which had been felt by those in terested in the expedition for the past few months. Dr. Smith entered Africa on the eastern coast about at the third degree of north latitude a year ago last June, to push across the country of the Galleas and Mazai, the two lakes which have been re cently discovered by another expedition, and from thence into the two Nyanzas, his object being to carry out and com plete tho line of exploration from the lakes to the east coast, a distance of several hundred miles. Dr. Smith was accompanied by about 150 Africans, and at first by an Englishman, who was subsequently obliged to return to Lon don. Dr. Smith sent back some fine speci mens of the regions, flora, after he had been on his expedition a few months, for the geographical society of London, and some months later was reported to be pushing on. Aside from the evidences of his safety there have been none until the arrival of his cablegram last even ing. As the region w'hich Dr. Smith has traversed is at the present time repre sented bv a blank space on the map of Africa, the significance of the explorer’s brief message will be realized imme diately. He has undoubtedly made a great many discoveries of much Value. Dr. Smith is well known in this city, be ing a graduate of the University of Penn sylvania of the class of 1886. and k tnem ber of the university and other clubs.
