THE KAN FRANCISCO ELECTION.
The Citizens' Union in San Francisco haye
made a pretty mess of the election.
They used tinted tickets that they ixht
spot the voters vrho voted against theui. This
is a Wow at the secresy of the ballot-box and
a direct violation f the law.
A party which resorts to such a contemptible
trick dons not deserve success.
The Citizens' tick'fei was elected by a ma
jority of several thousand, yet the prospect
now is that the illegal votes will be thrown
out and the election jjiven to the Workingmen.
This is the only course left , and such a decision
weuld teach the blundering politicians of Saa
Francisco a lessou.
Every man who casts his ballot has a right
to cast it in such a way that no ether man
can tell how he voted. The freedom of the
ballot is the swlid foundation of the whole
system of a republican form of government,
and the men who attempt to destroy any of
its safegaurds deserves to suffer for it.
The action of the manipulators of th Citi
aons' party was a clean case of deliberate

THE PAPER CORNER BROKEN.
The efforts to break up the corner on print
paper have at lwt met with a success that will
be a crashing rebuke lo the men who engi
neered the forming of the "corner." The
House Committee on Ways and Means 8 to
2 have decided to place upon the free list all
manufactured paper, woud pulp and jute un
manufactured from fl ix and straw, and all
other fibre and fibrous plants fit for use for
the manufacture of paper. This will enable
paper to be manufactured in America at about
half the cst for material that the importers
have been paving. The fall in the price of
paper will be like a crash in stocks after a pe
riod of over-iufl ition. The tneu who combined
to make paper so expensive to newspaper pub
lishers, have put a lajf 6 auiou ut of money into
the pool and it is to be hoped that they will
soon reap the reward of their folly.
The Riilroa and the Mkohank;s Union
Yesterday afternoon an engineer on the V
& T. R. II. received orders from a Committee
ef the Mechanics' Uuion of Storey cuiinty not
t brinj his engine back te Virginia to-day.
This beinj the brst of April the order made by
the Union some weeks ago is supposed te 'ge
into effjct. Mr. Yeringion, as will be seen
by an interview in another column, has decided
to send his engines to the round house as fast
as the engineers are ordered oil', and if pressed
to the wall suspend all travel between Carson
and Virginia City. This will cause a number
of complications t arise. The U. S. mails
will be stopped, and furnish sidid reasons for
calling out United States troops. The wood
supply will be cut oil" from the mines of the
Comstock, and Virginia Cfty will in a few days
be out of provisions. As yet the Union has
iudulgedin no overt act beyond ordering the
engineers to refrain from running their en
fines. What they propose to do in case the
.Railroad Company persist in sending non
union engineers into Stwrey county, can only
be determined in the fut ure. That the Union
can carry their point by peaceful means re
mains te be seen. If they go outside the law to
coerce the Railraad Company there can be but
ue result. The State militia will be called
out to preserve the peace, and if necessary tke
forces of the U. S. Government will be ordered
to the BCene of action. A peaceable settlement
of the difficulty is the best possible thing that
can happen. If trouble res alts it is likely to
be something of a serious nature all round and
likely to work lasting injury te the State.
(JiLL. The newspapers which are at pres
ent discussing Congressman Daggett's gall,
will do well to turn toa case which has recently
eoine to light in Russia. A church organist
at A rat off, near Kieff, lately confessed on his
death bed to the murder, twenty years ago, of
a farmer. He committed the crime with the
priest's pistol, which he stole and then placed
in the sacristy, confessed to the priest so as
to preclude the latter from giving evidence
against biin, without infringing the obligation
of eecrecy, and then went and denounced tho
priest as the culprit. The priest, who vainly
protested his innocence, was sentenced to
hard labor for life, and when his liberation was
applied for on the strength of the organist's
confession, the reply was that he had died a
few months ago. The gall of the organist
above deteribed is as far superior to any ex
hibition of gall which Daggett might treat us
to, as the cheek of Bill Sharon is to the mod
esty of a country maid of eight years.

Miss Annie Pickens, daughter of the Gov

April L'2, 18(5.', in Charleston, to Lieutenant
Andrew de Rochelle. The wedding party
was assembled in the Pickens resilience, and
the clergyman was asking the bride if she was
ready, when a shell from a Union gun in the
harbor broke into the room ai:d lmist. Nine
persons were hurt, but only Miss Pickens' in
juries proved fatal. She bore the pun with
wonderful fortitude, and was unmoved when
inforuied that she had only an hour or two te
live. De Rochelle said that he would like to
have her die his wife, and the poor girl smiled
an assent. The guests remember the scene
a3 far more pitiful thau they can describe.
The bride lay on a sof, her dress dabbled in
blood, and her hair disheveled, while her pal
lid face was so wrung with agony, that her ef
forts to smile became futile. The ceremonv
was hurriedly performed, though the bride's

her lips hardly moved in response to her hus
band's kiss. She died immediately afterward.

THE SAN FRANCISCO ELECTION.
CITIZENS MAJORITY ABOUT SIX THOUSAND.
San Francisco, March 31.
The Workingmen have filed a protest
against counting the ballots of the Citizens'
Union on account of a difference in tint,
claiming that their own ballots are printed on
legal paper from the Secretary of State, while
the ballots of their opponents are not in con
foruair.y with the law, differing in color,
weight and texture of paper.
It is known that men were staioned at
the polling places during the day, to take
notes of the color of the ballots and peisons
voting them, and the Workingmen charge
that the Citizens Union put up the jot pur
posely to enable them to exercise a suivetl
ance over the voters, iu violation of the Elec
tion law. One report is that an employe of
the Secretary of State's office, was made use
of to secure the desired difference in the ballot
paper. There appears good grouud for a con
test over the matter, and many hold that the
ballots are not in accordance with the law and

Owing to some mismanagement of ceriain
election officers the count is not yet complete,

Mr. Whittieu's "Maud Muller," according
to a cot respondent of the SprintjfirAd Republi

through York, Me., aud stopped to inquire
the way of a young girl who was at work in
the haj field. Her beauty, and the modesty
with which she raked the hay over her naked
feet while they were talking with her, touched
the poet's fancy, and that night the poem wag
written. "If I had had anv idea that the
plaguey little thing would have been so liked,
I should have taken more pains with it," the
correspondent makes Mr Whittier say. Some
