and some even claim that It will bo wiped

a peculiar people. They invariably claim an
Immense democratic majority after every

when compelled to do so, and not before Tho

7,000, and so wo glvo It, though there is ovcry

New Yonit, Nov. 9. Tho following Is eent
for such papers as dcslro to publish It :
TEE, Hoffman IIijvue, New Y'ork, Nov. 0.
Wo deem It our duty to announce to the neo
ploofthc stato that tho republican managers
huve, within tho ln.st forty-eight hours, con
ceived anew scheme for thruwing again into
dispute tho result of tho election in our state.
. tor many days after tho election they, in en
tire bad faith, claimed for tho republican can
didate several stales which theykuuwthoy
baduot carried. Inthosamo faith, when ev
ery sourco of information, including tho Asso
ciated Press, has demonstrated that tho vote
of New York has been git en to tho Cleveland
electors, they still claim the state.
No part of history is now better known than
that tho result of tho election as ascertained,
declared, and certiUed by tho election officers,
and of publlo record throughout tho state,
Klvo Now York to tho Cleveland electors by a
ilccMvo plurality. Theso public certllled re
turns havo been sifted In tho several counties
by both parties with tho most conscientious
care during tho last four days, until every pos
sible doubt aBtotho result has been removod
Knowing this fact they now nrotmse. as a
last desperate resort, to mako of tho boards of
county canvassers throughout the tunc, wheru
controlled by them, so inanyrr turning boards,
. after the pattern or tho"onot long slneo used
by them in tho southern states. Wherever
Ihoboards fall them Judicial orders aro to bo
applied for.
thus relying upon thormrtlranshlp of tho
boards, In tho lira place, and Judges of their
own political faith In the second, tney intend
and expect to throw again Into dlsputo tho re
sult cf tho election, and involvo It In Inter
minable litigation.
To tbK end printed papers have been sent
by them to their agents nnd representatives In
every county In tho stato of New York, to bo
mod with the courts whenever un occasion can
bo manufactured. Of tho entire reliability of
via jmuiiuiiuuu aa lu luia anuvuiu mi'iu uua
bo no question.
We call upon tho representatives of tho party
In the various counties of this stato to bo r.lcrt,
and by every proper method to resist and de
feat this last despeinto device.
And mindful of the fjravo consequences to
tho business interests of our stato which such
n conspiracy necessarily Involves, wo deem It
our duty to assure our peoplowho havo now
generally acquiesced In tho result, that they
may coutldentlv rely that by no such scheme
or device will tho stato bo deprived of tho re

It provides that "If mora than ono rettrn,

ino suusiuuio was auoptcu Dyiuo uoup,

Tho annual report of tho commissioner of
Internal rovonuo shows that tho total receipts
of his omco were 8121,679,039. It Is estimated
that U5,000,000 will bo collected during tho
present year. Tho commissioner says that tho
anticipated falling otT will follow from Iho
diminished quantity of wbtskys produced In
1882, on which tha tax will mature during this
year. Another causo will bo Iho largely In
creased exportation of spirits In bond, on
which Iho owners cannot pay tho tax. About
10,000,000 gallons have already been forced
abroad during this year becaum or stagnation

tho bonded period. A (Tirapamtlv xatr-mciit

total expenses were a little less than 4 1-5 per
cent, or tho amount collected. Tho commissioner-
says that tho diminution or gross re
ceipts could not proportionately affect the cost
or collection, as nearly tho same forco had to
bo retained. Tho deficiency appropriation of
380.000, for payment of salaries or storekeepers
and fees of gaugcrs, was so much less limn

about attempting to subvert tho will of the
great American people.
In Wilmington, N. O., tho resolutions ex
pressed "the abhorrence of tho peoplo of this

The High Council Opened With a Pageant or
(Heat l'omp and Ceremony A Brilliant ills
course by Archbishop Itjsn, of Philadelphia
Tbo Ofllcers of the Coancll-lts Deliberations,
Baltimore, Nov. 3. Under a cloudless sky,
in tho midst of brilliant sunshine, with thou
sands or eager onlookers and fervent worship
pers, nnd with nil tho pomp and circumstance,
tho form and ceremony which havo been
associated with tho Catholic church for
centuries, Us third plenary council In tho
United States opened this mornlug at tho
cathedral In this city. From early dawn the
streets In the vicinity ot tho great building,
and of tho archlcpltcopal residence, were
filled with patient nnd curious watchers.
Carrlngo uftcr carrlago would drive tip and
lcavoattho mansion u priest or a bishop who
was. to tako part In tho opening ceremonies.
Clusters of peoplo stood around the doors of
tho cathedral, which were guarded by squads
of police; and, la sacristy and robing rooms,
altar boys, seminarians, and masters of cere
monies kept up a constant chango of light
aiid color. It had evidently been determined
that In brilliancy ami lu numbers tho open
ing services should exceed any religious
event In tho hl-tory of tho country, and cer
tainly the results went beyond all expecta
tions. With thirteen archbishops and sixty
live bishops, besldo scores of abbots, mon
slgnorl, vlcars-gcncrnl, superiors of religious
orders, rectors of seminaries, and theologians,
it can readily bo understood how, if only from
a spectacular point of view, tho ceremony
must havo appealed to tho artistic sensoof
the spectators.
Tho miuor clergy and tho latty who were to
tako part In tho procession assembled at St.
Alphonsus hall, about two squares distant, und
then inarched to tho archbishop's residence
to ioitl in tho cercmoules nroner. Thn striata
through which tho pageaut was to pass to the
cathedral were by this time lilted Willi specta
tors, uugeriy awaiting ami yet suuuuca 1U
manner iiudievcreut in attltudu. Tho cathe
dral, which lu exterior architecture, resembles
more n Turkish mosque than n Christian tcin-
r'le. stood out clear cut and lusulvo in Its ar
Istlo proportions, and tho quaint nnd old
fashioned private dwellings which surround
It, made tho scene as plcluresquu ns tr It had
been happening In some ancient cathedral city
ofF.uropo. As tho cross-bearer, carrying tho
processional cross, was seen leading tho pro
cession, the faithful uncovered or made n
plons gcnullectluu. fn order then thero fol
lowed secular and regular clergy.semlnarlans,
theologians, bishops, and archbishops, and
altered abbots, ull in the full panoply of their
sacred olllce. It only needed a herald pur
suivant to mako ono bcllevo ho looked on
some gathering of princes and potentates, so
rich and dazzling wero tho colors of tho vest
ments worn and thu Jeweled croK.cs raised
aloft in the clear air. Venerable princes of
thu church moved along In unconscious dig.
nlty, their long trains supported by bright
faced boys. Kecn-iuccd and Intellectual look
ing men, In tho prime or life, men either fit to
command or ready to obey, walked with mod
est mien. Bishops bearing lightly tho weight
of years, and carrying tho pastoral
staff tiled silently past, tho sunlight
glancing on their copes and miters. Occa
sionally among tho crowd of clean-shaven
faces could bo seen ono with patriarchal beard
and vcuerabla look, seeming as ifho had step
ped out from somo richly stained window
which glowed with tho pictures of saints or
npustloH. Slowly swinging his censer, and
spreading around nu odor or fraukincouse,
came inu ccnscr-uearcr, ana men uringiug up

his looks, his fnco seemed almost paler than

and crimson that met tho c)o ut every turn;
and so, with deep, rich voices chanting psalms,
with pomp and heraldry, wllh thousands of
devotees bowing their heads, and even thoso
who looked ou the spectacle as a passing show
Impressed with Its beauty and Its harmony, the
church was reached.
Up tho long nlsles camo tho stately move
ment. The altars svero ablozo with light, tho
deep diapason or tho organ swelled up lo thu
dome In peels or thunder, tho voices of the
choir added to the melody, uud tho services
booking down from tho gallery tho effect
wns that of somu rich mosaic, i.orno grand

may havo been a pictures. pio figure, but as
suredly to-day thu glory and tliu splendor
which surrounded tnoso who claim desceut
from him could not lull to Impress and teach
Its lesson alito to tho child and tho sag".
On reaching the sanctuary tho archbishops
occupied seats to tho right or tho altar, and
tho abbots and provincials to the left. The
bishop occupied thu recess or tho ulttir or tho
Blessed Virgin, whllo the seminarians occu
pied the recess or tho altar ot St. Joseph. T ho
priests occupied chairs lu tho aisles and in
front or thu sanctuary. Archbishop Gibbous
occupied thu throne, uud near him was thu
vicar general of the arehleplscopal sco.

Konrlcks, of St. l.ouls, celebrated the grand
high mass, assisted by Rev, Dwlght 1.) man as
deacon, and Rov. J. A. McCuIlen, S. S., was
master of ceremonies. Tho choir consisted of
upwurd of fifty vocalists, under tho direction
of Rev. Father (iraf, and tho muslo was of a
high order. Besides Iho choir tho sciulnuriuus
acted as choristers, nud, with tho reverend
clergy and higher dignitaries, chanted the
lltaup'S, After the mass Most Rev. Archbishop
Ryan, of Philadelphia, preached on tho church
and her councils. He selected lor his text tho
Mh, Huh. nnd 'Joth verses, chapter xxvlll, of
tho gospel of bt. Matthew. He said that It was
not svittiout emotion nnd soino embarrassment
ho attempted to make uu address on this
august occasion. He was to speak of tho
church which Christ had established ou the
earth nud of lis head. Tho church recognized
Its head because Uud hud pluced him at the
head or Ills Hock ou earth, Tha church hud
been expose. 1 In thu rains and wind, but It fell
not, becuu"u II was rounded on it rock, and
Christ said it should continue to tho consum
mation ot tho world. It wns not deputed with
ordinary power, hut the Holy Uhost had en
dowed ft with extraordinary power. Address
lug himself to the priesthood, who were
brought more Into contact with tho people, he
said they wero present at the council to aid Its
deliberations by their experience and counsel,
Archbishup Ryan said he was piescut eigh
teen years ago at the second plenary council
when thero were forty-six bishops, and now
thero nro over sevcuty, Of the forty-six then
foity had passed to thu bishop of their souls,
anil their nearness to Cod makes them more
zealous lor thu glory of Uod uud tho salvation
nf the people.
The chinch was fighting tho battle of the
right ugaiust thu wrung. There nro men or
ilill'crent religious denominations und men or
no religion at 'nil who look to this council to
lay tho basis ot a sounder morality, uud tho
church knows It Is fatal to trust to human
honor nud honesty without supernatural aid.
Men say they admire the Preacher of tlio ser
mon on the Mount, but do not connect them

Pi-i He said : "I will build My church,
