New York, Nov. 2.-To-day, the
eve of one of the greatest elections
ever held in New York, the situa
tion is unchanged. The odds are,
if anything, heavier on Van Wyck
than at any previous time. The
Tammany people are sanguine of
success, and are putting out "all
kinds of money."
Over three hundred micetings
are held every day.
Henry George was buried this

the largest that ever took place in

W. C. Lewis (New. Orleans), who

Among the new cases of yellow
fever in New Orleans last week
were Palmer Abbott,the wellknown

The first train between Lafa
yette and Alexandria will come
through to-night, and, it is believ
ed, will continue every day. No
schedule has yet been arranged,
and we presume that the train will
not be run on schedule time.
The conditions, as agreed upon
by Health Officer Thompson and
the railroad, is as follows:
"The Southern Pacific Company
areallowed to run a mixed train
between Lafayette and Alexandria
providing they do not bring any
freight, passengers or express mat
ter, money excepted, from New Or
leans or any infected point, or
through any infected point.
"Empty cars coming from non
infected points will be allowed into
the parish under certificate from
conductor in charge of train to the
effect that the said cars have not
been in any infected point within
10 days, and have been fumigated.
The railroad company must allow
one of my guards to board said
train at quarantine station (Caren
cro bridge or Sunset), and continue
with train through parish of St.
Landry and return.
"Empty cars originating from an
infected point, within less than 10
days, will be subject to fumigation,
at quarantine station, under above
conditions. Trains will not be sulz

my life to have your roses.

Sybil (calmly)-And so they do.

Lady Raye (cutting a slice)-I'm
glad you like it.
Sybil (enthusiastically)-And such

Lady Raye-Yes. Do you like the
tone of the walls? I neverfelt quite
certain about them.
Sybil (firmly) - Just right; the
citron shade throws up water colors
as nothing else could. What a
charming sketch that is. (She rises
to look at it.)
Lady Raye-It is one of Made
leine Lemare's, the general gave it
to me for my birthday-the last but
one, that is.
Sybil-Those poppies look quite
downy. Good gracious, Leslfe, who
is this? (Picking up a photo frame
from a small table.)

Capt. Rodney, I am sure.
Lady Raye-Do you know him?

the relationship. (She sinks com
fortably into an easy chair.) What

I never came across a more obsti

Sybil (laughing)-What a sweep

all that; but I thought him distinct

Lady Raye (hastily) - Well, his
people are quite decent; he told me
all about them.

enough for that?

fancy to him, so, he was always in

The third of the Walters, the great
family of London newspaper pub
lishers, has passed away. The grand.
father of the dead John Walter:
founded the London Times over one
hundred years ago. The father
made the journal a power in the
land, and his eldest sorn made it
famous all over the world as "The
Thunderer." The prosecution of
Parnell upon the strength of the
the forged Pigott letters almost
wrecked Mr. Walter's fortune and
prestige; but by his wonderful alert
ness and vigor he regained very
nearly all his old inluence. He was
throughout his lifetime an un
crowned sovereign of the English
public; am. in hbis death there has
been silenced one of the most conm
