Meettig of State Committee,
Chairman Krutteehnichtt bas is
seed a call for the, Democratic
State Central Committee to mOa
vene at Alexandria, on Tuesday,
Nov, 9th. Mr. J. IL Williams is
the member for Grant perish,
Wins pprisb. As there are sever.
al matters of importance for the
committee to decide, and the quar
antine regulations may prevent a
quorum being present, these gen.
tlemen should make it a point to
attend, or see to having accredited
proxies on hand.
Tuesday, Nov. 2d, was the day
for elections in the States of New
York, Ohio. Iowa, Kentucky, Col
orado, Nebraska, Massachusetts,
Maryland, Pennsylvania and Vir
ginia. Owing to the quarantine de
lays our papers are five or six days
old when they come to hand, and
we have not been able to get any
news as to the general results.
The election of mayor in Greater
New York is one in which much
interest has been centered, and the
death of Henry George, one of the
four candidates, on the eve of the
election, only serves to increase
the interest, as there was no cer
tainty as to were his strength
would go on theday of election.
Later-Michia n, Iowa, Nebras
ka, Massachusetts and Pennsyl
vania are claimed by the St. Louis
Globe Democrat as having gone
Bepublican, others doubtfuL In
New York city Van Wyck, Tam
many's candidate, is said to be
elected beyond any controversy.
There is a great deal of ignorant
and foolish disuemsion indulged in
of late as to the different types of
fever that have prevailed in this
and other States for the past two
months. Charlatans and tadpole
doctors have had full sway, and
because a few cases of a very mild
type of yellow feer bare prevailed
in the cities along our Gulf coast,
the entire country has been work
ed up into a perfect spasm of un
reasoning and foolish fear, by the
doctors reporting dengue fever, ty
phoid malaria, and all similar dis
eases, as yellow fever. We this
week publish ans interesting 'liag
eosis by Dr. I. A. Veasie, show
leg the distinction between dengue
and yellow fever, which all should
read as matter of information.

Yes, we hope so, and believe it
will be so. We have long saince

who have lost all confidence in

The story of the rescue of Miss
Cisneros from the Spanish prison
in Cuba, by Carl Decker, the news
paper correspondent, rivals the
most thrilling story of fiction.
This young (Cuban lady, a mere
girl of 18, was arrestd as a spy
and imprisoned in a guarded dun
geon. Some two months ago
Decker formed the daring resolve
to rescue her, and, with the aid of
two or three equally daring spirits,
within two or three weeks time
actually accomplished her escape,
by filing out the iron bars of her
window and assisting her on board
of a ship bound for the United
States, and she and her gallant de
liverer are now in New York being,
royally entertained and feted by an
enthusiastic populace, who always
admire bravery and daring, especi
