HOW BLOWS THE WIND; Political Breezes That Whisper am Gossip AMONG THE TREES AT SARATOGA The News They Tell at Earti Morn, at the Noontide's Hour and Evening's Purple Birth. NAMES THAT ARE BREATHED To the Quick Ears of Listening Millions. Saratoga, N. Y., September 13.—TV principal diversion the past week has beeo swearing at the weather and talking politics —especially talking politics. It bu even invaded the ranks of the ladies, and along the shaded verandas the names of Cleve land and Blaine are heard from feminine lips more freqaently than plaited basque" or "Watteau train. Among the men there has been much serious comparison of politi cal views and grave aiscusaions ot Mr. Blaine's past record The sturdj old ex Secretarv of State and ex-Governor, Ham ilton Fish, an old-time friend of Mr. Blaine, .leads many of these discussions. In spite of his lifelong de votion to the Republican cause he is I outspoken in his admiration for Cleveland, and in his bluff hearty way says 90 to the | li'tle group of admirers that can always be I found about his favori'e seat. Such men as Benjamin H. Kristow. who was Secretary of the Treasurv while Mr Fish was at the head of Grant s Cabinet; Francis Walker, Chief of the Census Bureau, uud others, I men whose names ;>tau<l at the head of the Bepublican party, are equally outspoken in their determination to vote for Cleveland It will be their first vote for any other than a Republican, they say. b it they must vote for him unless they choose to not vote at all. The idea ot supporting Blatne is not even considered. lhe venerable Mr. Fish, whose services as Secretary of State uuder Grant, aud as Governor of New York elected by Whig voters, make him oneofthe most prominent men it; his party, was somewhat averse to talking public h of his preference for Cieve laud. A Splendid Record as Governor, am out of politics altogether." he said "and it would hardly look right for me to take any active part in the campaiga under the circumstances. I have the greatest re spect and admiration for the Democratic candidate, and personally I should like to see him President. He has made a splen did record as Governor, and i believe would do equally well as the Chief Executive. There is only one thing I shall possiblv fear in voting for him, and that is the Southern lVmocratic element. Cleveland himself is all that could be desired, but he might— mind. I «ay might—be controlled bv the Southt rn 1 'emocratic majority Even though I vote for Cleveland, it is the man and noi ?he party I indorse.

"I know him personally, ami a more a^reea'.ile, fascinat ing man I never met. But his past rec ord"—and Mr H»h broke off abruptly and pursed up his lips, fearful of saying too much. "I won t say anything of his doings in Congress, tor on that point there is some dispute. But his course in 'he department is patent to all—you know it as well as I— and it cannot be too s'rongly condemned 1 don't want to talk publicly.

Courting a Millionaire's Daughter in the Stable, On the Road, and at Her School. j LIGHT OF HER PAPA'S EYES And Her Lover's Only and Ad are:! Angel. Nkw York. September 13.—There is no definite news of the whereabouts of the daughter of Morosiui, the millionaire, and her coachman husband, though interest in the romantic affair has not subsided. The coachman was originally a pianomaker, but changed his occupation when advised by a physician to seek outdoor work for his nealth. Eleven months ago Mr. Morosiui engaged him at Brewster's carriage manu factory, where the man was looking for a job. Mr. Morosini met him, was satisfied with his references, and engaged him. He was about 36 years old, although he called himself 25. Rather Keimlithe. He was not the handsome and attractive fellow tliat has been pictured. He was re pulsive, and had a face, as Miss Morosini's elder brother expressed it, "like a baboon." The stories that he was ot noble birth are absurd. He has been a coachman for a number of years. The statement that he was formerlv a waiter at Delnionico's. where Miss Morosini ni»*t him. is also un true. The young lady did not frequent Delmonico s. Courtship in the This unattractive fellow begun to court the favor of his employer'# daughter soon after entering Mr Morosini's service. The young lady had a handsome horse which she was in the hnhit ofri<ing about the country around Yon leers Her fath»r gave her the horse and told her to be kind to the animal and try to win his affection. He suggested to her that it would be wise to visa the horse frequently in his stall and :eed him with lumps of sugar. She followed her father s advice. When she visited the •stable the coachman waa always there, and he never missed an opportunity of holding conversation with her. He always entered the stall of the horse with her. evidently de siring to convev the impression that they were talking about the norse. Opportunities on Uuneback. The frequent horseback excursions of Miss Morisini were also favorable to the coachman. He mounted a horse and rode forth as attendant groom. It is now re numbered that he was constantly seen riding close up to Miss Morisini, pretending to arrange her habit. When she rode out in the carriage she frequently dropped something. This gave the coachman an opportunitvto stopliis horses and exchange a hw wonfs or expressive glances with her Their Confederate*. A groom who left the place on the «»tpe (VMvnry "intl visited the neighborhood i>t Mr. Morosini s residence. lie was a great friend of the coachman and it is supposed bv Mr. Morosini's family that he conveyed a note to Miss Victoria. Sarr»h t'oyle, laun dress in Morosini s housa, also acted as an assistant to the lovers. She Eipn ted to M»k» » Raise. On Tuesday afternoon Miss Morosini left the bouse just before 'A o clock. Somewhat later Mr. t'antoni, Mr Morosini's banker, arrived at the house, lie had in his pocket £ 1,000 in greenbacks. ne brought the money for Miss Victoria, who had written him a note explaining that she wanted that sum to purchase a Christmas present for her father. Miss Morosini had no money of her own with Mr Cautoni, and he thought it wise to let her father know that he was about to give her the sum. The banker ar nved in time to learn that the young lady had disappeared Schelling was known to have a small sum of money on deposit in the Seaman's Hank. Misa Siorosini has #1,100 of her own savings in the Hanover National Hank, where her brother, ("Hov&nni. is a clerk. Her younger brother came to town yeMerday morning and slopped pay ment of any checks that might come there drawn in her name. How She M»jr be Arrwtml. When Miss Victoria left the house sh" wore two of her own dresses one under thp other. She took a portion of her own jew elrv of which she had a magnificent col lec'ion She also took twodiamondcrosse* belonging to h<T sister Julia. $2"> in monev belonging to one of the servants, who gave it t* the young lady lor safekeeping, apd two coral eardrops. The taking of these things, which the young woman nay have intended to return, is the error for which the police, if they find her, will hoW her lor her parents. Her Musical Ability. While Victoria Mo»oeini was a student at Mount St. Vincent she was the siar at the pahlic exhibitions She was an admirable singer and her skill as a performer on nw sieal instruments was phenomenal. As a pianist bhe ranked far above all other pu fiils and she played the harp and violin. After leaving school it issaid, she learned to play the cornet and. strangest of all. the trombone. Surpassing all in rai:*ic. she di«l not keep pace with her classmates iu other siudies. and sw, y**ar afier year, she failed to graduate. After leaving school Victoria studied singing under Agrnmonte, but she had little opportunity to display the quality of her voic* owing ?o the dornevic haS'ts of her father and his unwillingness to aflow his children to depart from his neight>or hood Th« lught olHln Ijm.

Miss Leslie and her com panion were very much annoyed, and at last they could evade the young man by leaving the cabin and going out on the for ward deck. Made a MUtake. It seem8 that the young man merely took this as an invitation for him to join them aud he immediately acted upon the sup position- He went out on deck and ap proaching them addressed them both in the most eudearing terms. He placed his arm gently around the waist of the voung girl and tried to caress her. Mitt Leslie, however, saw what theyouih intend ed. She doubled her little fist and struck out bard from the shoulder, hitting the young man tairly between the eyes and sending him sprawling on the deck. When he picked himself up he cried: "0, darl ing, don't hit me like that again; it harts." "Don't yoc call me darling/' put in Miss Leslie, by this time verjr indignant. "I will teach you to be insulting to young ladies heraaner," and she emphasized her re marks with a sharp s'ap in the face. The yoare man became frightened and tried to djpo the other end of the boat, bat was floored again by Miss Leslie's companion, who struck him with her para sol, which made him lose his balauce. While he was lying on the deck both the girU pounded him with their parasols until he lowled for mercy. With a sudden leap he came to his feet and rushed into the fentlemen's cabin, but not before Miss -esT.e had again slapped his face. HOT WEATHER DID IT. The Deprriiitd Condition of Buninrit the 1'Bnt Week—Failure* Show ail Increase Over the Preceding Week. New York, September 13.—Telegrams to Bradstreet s froui the leading trade cen ters of the countrv indicate that the hot weather which generally prevailed daring the first half of the week attested unfavor ably the tendency to an increased distribu tion of goods. In spite of this, however, the usua. autumn demand has had iu effect in moderately increased movements, lie ports of the progress of mercantile collec tions are unfavorable at numerous points. Most of the New Kngland cotton mills, save those at Dowell and smaller ones here and there, which have shut down in definitely, are now running. In con sequence of the curtailment ot produc tion, prices are better maintained. Lead ing New England cotton manufacturers still coniinue n good deal at sea regarding she near future of business, and predictions given out are quite contradictory. The Chicago correspondent of Bradstreet's re poiW'hat owinglo the extreme low prices, the effect of the big crop of wheat on the stftte of businesn at Chicago has not been so beneficial a« expected. On the con trary, the effect has been rather dispiriting. The price of wheat has suffered another de cline, the September option at Chicago hav ing touched 7c during the week. Foreign advices are still bearish as to wheat. A large portion of the corn cropis past injury from fro*t. 1 be iron trade hat developed no improve ment, and the same conclusion applies to the general industrial situation. 1 here is i slightly firmer feeling in anthracite coal >wing to the curtailing of production dur ng September.

A Register reporter called upon a gen leman thoroughly posted oo the Tannery jusine* yesterday for the purpose of ascer taining the truth in regard to the business. For several weeks back it has been whisp ered around that Western Tannery men had lecli red open war on »W small estab ishnient* with a view of compelling them o quit the business. Th»-ir mode jt operation is very simple,, being nothing more or iess than a straight cut in prices, reducing it to be such a figure that a tKnall estjiblishment cannot begtu to sell at the figure, without losing money. The geatle i) an on being told what wa« in circulation rind bis »pioion asked, said: "Thiaie vir tually trua.

How the Work 1* ProffroMlng; on Thl* Now Venture. At the water works even-thing is working along rapidly. Mr. P. 0. Brien, the con tractor for the erection of the bnilding over the water well, is hard at work on his job, and expects to have it completed, inclading the painting, in two week. This building is 34 feet in diameter in the clear, and is octagon in shape, setting immediately over the large well, which holds the new engine. The well is 54 feet deep and twenty-two feet in the clear. A heavy tnissel will extend from the east to west side of this building upon which will be built a railroad, which will carry an endlesi chain. This chain is intended to be used in lowering and arranging the machinery of the pumps should anything happen to them at any time. A circular pair of stairs will run from the flooring ol this building down to the bottom of this well, these stairs will be fastened with iron brackets in the brick wall of the well. The engines will be pnt in the well as soon as the building is completed, probably 4 weeks will elapse from this date until the engines are in place and working properly. The work on the first or smaller well, which is situated immediately at the water s edge, is now completed. This well is 17 feet deep and measures 15 feet in the clear. From this well there are two pipe* 30 inches in diameter, which extend out into the river, one 84 feet and the other 72 feet. The work of laving these pipes was very difficult. Mr Kiddle superintended the job. He secured two very large barges and made the connection of the pipes on the barges, and then lowered the entire length to the bed of the river. At the end of each of these pipes is attached two twelve foot sewers. When these pipes enter the small well, there is a stopcock attached to each which can be manipulated when the river is high. The idea of this is to shut the water off from the pipes in the bed of the river during high water, thereby saving us from drinking the heavy sediment which always float! in the river near the bottom during a high stage of water. The superintendent has two thirty inch pipes connected with this well whichextends only a few feet from it and are about seven feet above the low water mark Through these pi pea he expects to gel ch*an waver during the high stacis of the ri\er The smaller well is Connected with the !arg< one, in which the engines work by a tunnel with a twenty-four inch suction tub* in it I his tube enters the small well about ni.\ eet from its bottom, and will not catch the -edinients which flo«vs in.o the small well The works will be in running order by ?h< 15th of ns xt mouth PlCOlt.tlil K Ml KKK.lt.
