The Republicans Make a Clean Sweep in Ohio, And in Iowa They Have a Fifty Thou sand Majority. Rational Capital Happenings. GUITEAU1 S CASE. Washington, October 12. Scoville, the brother-in-law and counsel of Gui teau, was in Court this morning and said he had no notice of information as to when the arraignment of Guiteau was to take place, and that he had not yet received any answer from General Butler as to whether he would act as counsel for the defondent; that a state ment was already published as to Mer rick's expressing unwillingness to argue the question of jurisdiction if raisett is correct, that he has been advisod by distinguished lawyers all over the coun try, including several judges, to raise every question and make every point that can be properly made on behalf of his client; that much is also expressed in the instructions of Guiteau and that he, Scoville, has no apprehensions of personal violence being offered to the prisoner on his way to or from the Court. He stated that the District Judges also expressed a desire that all legitimate and proper questions be put. TIIK SOLONS. In t he executive session of the Senate no business was transacted other than to lay nominations received from the President upon the table to await refer ence to the Appropriation Committee, when organized. Both Democrats and Republicans met in caucus this after noon. The Democrats discussed the Committee question and without agree ing on any definite plan of apportion ment merely decided to oppose the adoption of Edmund's resolution. The Republicans remained in session but a short time, discussing the general situa tion, and took no decided action on any particular question. LET ONLY TEN STAND. The Democrat caucus, this evening, authorized Senator Garland to amend Senator Edmund's resolution so as to create a list of not more than ten Com mitte's or such as may be made neces sary by presidential communications to stand lor tins sesison only ana mus save the expense and relieve public business now suffering. HEN BUTLEK WON1! HELP GUITEAU. General Butler telegraphs from Bos ton that imperative legal engagements preclude the possibility ot his accep ting the proposal of Scoville to defend Guiteau. NOMINATIONS. The President sent the following no minations to the Senate : Wm. W. Dud ley, Indiana, Commissioner of Pen sions; Otis P. Clark, Rhode Island, First Deputy Commissioner of Pensions; C. B. Walker, Deputy Commissioner of Pensions ; II. C. McFarland, Kansas, Commissioner of General Land Office : Chas. II. Howard, Illinois, Indian In spector; Addison Brown, New York, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York ; G eo. M. Duskin, Alabama, Attorney of the United States for the Southern District of Alabama; Robert S. Foster, Indiana, United States Marshal for the District of Indiana : A. C. Phillips, Arkansas. Receiver or Public Moneys, Harrison, Arkansas ; George H. Spencer, Minne sota, Indian Agent at Crow (reek Agency, Dakota ; August Brosins, Penn sylvania, Indian Agent at Great Ne matha Agency, Nebraska. VACANCIES ON SENATE COMMITTEES. Should Edmund's resolution be adopt ed Bayard will have power to fill vacan cies on Committees of last session oc casioned by the death of Burnside and the resignation of Conkling and Piatt. Several important Committees would thus be made Democratic. Burnside was chairman and Conkling members of the Foreign Relations Committee ; Piatt, Finance ; Burnside, Military ; Conkling, Judiciary ; Piatt. Post Office; Burnside, Education ; Conkling, En grossed Bills. Bayard might assign new Senators only to the three inferior Committees and make the other three important ones Democratic. KEl'UBLICANS NOT IN FAVOR OF ELECT ING DAVIS. Talk in the Republics n caucus and by Republican Senators outside of the cau cus is not generally favorable to the proposition to elect Davis, of Illinois, President of the Senate and thus dis place Bayard. Republicans appreciate the fact that they would bo compelled to elect Senator Davis without any pledge from him as to how he would vote on party questions, and prominent Republican Senators say he would as likely vote with the Democrats as the Republicans on such questions. A Re publican Senator said this morning that he preferred Bayard to Senator Davis, because be knew just what to expect from Bayard, and that if President Ar thur should die, Bayard would natural ly employ all the powers of thht officer while acting President to elect a Demo cratic President of the United States, and this would unite the Republican party, but Senator Davis would proba bly adopt a middle or independent course which might not help the Repub lican party. ONE HUNDUEI AND FIFTH CALL. Up to noon there has been about $350,000 three-and-a-half per cent. bonds received for redemption under notice to redeem five million bonds em bodied in the 105th call. Should there be more than five million dollars in bonds offered it Is quite probable re demption will be mado pro rata. This Senator said the Republicans had no authoritative information whether Davis would accept a nomina tion or not, and that should they nom inate him he would vote against himself and thus defeat the movement. It would be embarrassing if he expressed himself for letting Bayard alone until the Republicans can elect one of their number. Bayard said that if the Republicans nominate Davis, he will move to elect him and thus put him under as much obligation to Davis for his position as to the Republicans. Davis has informed the Senators in friendly conversation most positively that he would not con sent to the use of his name, and that he will vote against any preposition, to change the presiding officer. It is more than probable that no effort will be made at this session to displace Bayard. The Republican Senators are desirous of an early adjournment, and will not be likely to consume time in fighting over the presiding officer, unless they have a show of electing a Republican. NO SECKETAHY THIS SESSION. Neither party has positively decided anything about the election of Secretary and regular committees. Indications are that only such as are necessary will be created. edmund's resolution. It is thought the Republicans will all support Edmund's resolution, and should Davis vote for it it will be adop ted. Foxhall and Iroquoiv New York, October 12. The Herald says : If Keene and Lorillard imagine that the American people will ever be satisfied until Iroquois and Foxhall meet in a race they are the most mis taken couple on this terristrial ball. Keene was asked yesterday if he would run Foxhall again this season in Eng land and replied : " I have-not yet made up my mind in the coming Cambridgeshire race which is only about half the distance of the Czarowitch. His weight is 112 pounds, but as he has incurred a penalty by vic tory to-day of fourteen pounds rising the imports, ho will have to carry 128 pounds. I am at present dubious as to the advisability of starting him. No three-years old has ever won the Cam bridgeshire with anything approaching the weight roxhall has to carry." Keene was asked if he would be afraid in THit 1'YíyIiíiII níríiirwl. Trnminid rr nnfr " I should not Tie afraid as to the re sult if they met at equal weight ver any distance." Republican Victory In lito. . Columbus, O., Oct. 12. The feature of the election was that the Democrats gained in Republican eountien, and vice versa. This is attributed to the fact that in several Republican counties. church and temperance people, very strong iiepuulicans scratched ioster on nnpmint. rt tlif fnilnro nf thp lnnriulai-nvn last winter to give additional liquor legislation. The Legislature attempted to give this legislation, but could nwt agree on account of the variety ot plans offered. Foster's gain in Democrattc counties, offsetting his loss in Repub lican counties, is attributed to Book waiter's brief connection with the Dem ocratic party. The Democrats polled a full vote in these counties, and there was a stronger poll of Republicans there than in reliable Republican counties. It is denied in political circles that this has been Foster's mainstay. Returns official from sixty precincts of Hamil ton county, with forty-live precincts to hear from, show that nine out of ten Republicans were elected to the House, and two Republicons out of three elect ed to the Senate. Republican Victory In Iowa. Chicago, October 12. A Des Moines dispatch says SherWin has 50,000 ma jority. A Republican is elected in Web ster county for the lirfc time in twelve years. A Republican Senator was elec ted in Dubuque and a Senator and rep resentative are secured to the Republi cans in Lee county. The entire Repub lican ticket was elected in Polk county and the Republican majority in the Legislature will be ninety. Iitlllcrs and Kpirlt Dealer. Chicago, October 12. The National Distillers and Spirit Dealers Association met this morning. In the absence of the President, II. II. Shufcldt, of Cin cinnati, W. II. B, Miller, of Springfield, was chosen temporary Chairman. May or Harrison made a speech of welcome. The annual address of the President and the Treasurer's report were read and the Association adjourned until the afternoon. The Country In Peril. New York, Oct. 12. The Times and Tribune favor the suggestion to elect Davis President of the Senate. The Tribune says if it is true, as Judge Da vis will not deny, that the present situa tion places the peace of the country in peril by inviting any reckless and des perate man to change the administra tion through the use of the pistol. It is the duty ot the Senate to end that state of things. Transoceanic Cablegram. WENT DOWN WITH ALL ON BOAltD. London, October 12. In a heavy gale at the mouth of the Mercy, this morn ing, a schoonor, name unknown, foun dered with all on board. Thn Bank Wa Solvent. San Francisco, October 12. The small run on the German Savings Bank owing to statements made by William Hollis that it was insolvent. The Pres ident of the Real Estate Association says that the bank was not secured on his indebtedness to it. The officers of the bank deny Hollis's statement and make light of the run which they say was confined to small depositors. The Bank Commissioners reported favora bly on the bank two weeks ago. A Sale of a Coat. "Herman,1' said a Poydras street merchant clothier, addressing his clerk, 4thuf wo unLl nil nf finco nvprminta vnt. vas left over from last vinter?' "No sir, dere vas tree of dem left yet." - "V ell, ve must sell 'em right avay, as de vinter will not last, you Know, Her man. Pring mo out one uf the goats und I vill show you somedingj about the pisness. Ivill dell you how ve vill sell dem oud, und you must learn de pisness, Herman; do vinter vas gone, you know, und ve have had dose goats in do store more es seex years." An $8 overcoat was handed him by his clerk, and smoothing it over he took a buckskin money-purse from the show case, and, stuffing it full of paper, dropped it into one of the pockets. "Now, Herman my poy," he con tinued, "vatch me sell dat goat. I haf sold over dirty fife uf dem shust de same vay, und I vant to deech you de pisness. Ven de next customer comes in de shop 1 vill show tie vay Rube Hoff eustein, mine broder in Detroit sells his clodnig und udder dings," A few minutes later a negro, in quest of a suitable pair of shoes, entered the store. The proprietor advanced smil ing, and said. "Vat is it you visli?" "Yer got any cheap shoes hyar?" asked the negro. "Blenty uf uem, my front, blenty; at any brice you want." The negro stated that he wanted a pair of brogans, and soon his pedal ex tremities were encased in them, and a bargain struck. As he was about to leave the proprietor called him back. "I ain' t gwine tcr buy nullin elze. I'se got all I want," said the negro sullenly. "Dot may be so, my dear sir," replied the proprietor, "but I shust vauts you to look at dis goat. It vas de pure Rus sian vool, and dis dime last year you doan got dot same goat for twenty-five dollars. Mine gracious, clothing vas gone down to nodding and dere vas no money in de pisness any longer.

Dry it on, ray dear sir. Ah! dot vos all right. Misder Jones vas a rich man und he liked dot goat. How deep de pockets vas, but it vas a leedle dight agross de shoul ders." The negro buttoned up the coat, thrust his hands in his pockets and felt the purse. A peaceful smile played over his face when his touch disclosed to his mind the contents of the pockets, but he choked down his joy and inquired: "Who did you say wore this hyar coat?" "Vy Misder Jones vot owns de pank on Canal street." "What yer gwine ter ask fur it?" "Dwenty dollars." "Dat'spow'ful high price fur dis coat, but I'll take it," "Herman, here, wrap up dis goat for c:n snentieman ana arow in a cravat; it vill make him look nice mit de ladies." "Nebber mind, I'll keep de coat on," replied the negro, and pulling out a roll of money he paid for it and left the store. While he was around the next corner moaning over the stuffed purse, Hoffen stein said to his clerk: "Herman, fix up anuddervon of dose goats the same vay, und doan forgot to dell dem dot Misder Jones, vat runs de pank on Canal street, vore it yester day." Acw Orleans Times. A Journalistic Fight. Thursday's Atchison (Uobe says : Col. Anthony, of the Leavenworth Times, and Major Sleyens, of the Kan sas City Journal, met in personal en counter at the Union depot this after noon, but were separated in time to prevent great bodily harm to either, al though Stevens succeeded in hitting Mr. A. once on the organ he refers to as a hook. The men have been ene mies for several months, Anthony hav ing made application to the Western Associated Press to have Stevens sus pended for buying the news of a rival association. Stevens was victorious in the courts, and exultingly called An thony a hook-nosed old devil, to which sarcasm Anthony could make no other reply than that of fisticuffs. It is the opinion of a majority of those present that if Munifordanu Baker had not in terfered, Stevens would have jarred the earth with Anthony. Londonderry, Ireland, was lately the scene of a demonstration on the occa sion of drawing home the turf of an In carcerated tenant. At 9 a.m. 3,000 carts were assembled under the direction of a mounted curate. The Londonderry carts, 850, headed the procession. After them came 20 little boys, in green and orange, mounted on asses. The driyers of the 3,000 carts fought for the honor of carrying a sod. Prior to these pro ceedings the prisoner's nephow inaugu rated the demonstration by driving round the farm in a basket carriage drawn by six spirited beasts, and that number of juvenile outriders in green livery. Lake trout, black bass, fresh oysters, sweet potatoes and cranberries at Bell & Co.'s, the plaza grocers and bakers. 10-lMf Tbreatened Retaliation. The following epistle, sent from Du rango to Mayor Snowden, of Silverton, explains itself : "Durango, Colo., Sept. 28, 1881. Gentlemen : We have just learned that Dyson Eskridge is expected to ar rive in Silverton iu a short time, and probably by the time this reaches you, therefore we take this opportunity of calling to your attention the solemn fact that should he be lynched at the hands of the Silverton vigilantes, then sum mary vengeance will be meted out to any and ail af you in the near future. That you hung the Kid, who was inno cent of any crime, is well known to us. That it is necessary for you to travel in and out of ;your town on business, and if j'ou believe you are safe on Mich trips after you shall have lynched an other innocent man in the person of Dyson Eskridge, you are mistaken. Give him a just trial and all is well ; do otherwise and suffer the consequences. We are determined and have a fixed purpose to perform our work, therefore take timely warning. We do not up hold crime, but want the law to take its course. "TWENTY-TWO OF US. "While we do not approve of the lynching of men, neither do we endorse assassination. The lack of competent and honest officials makes strangling a necessity at times. When officers as sociate and sympathize with criminals, a community will naturally seek re dress. Give us upright officers of the law, and there will be no need of vigi lance committees. Put bad men into official positions and the disease there by generated on the body politic will require caustic measures.' Durango Southwest. The help already given to the Michi gan sufferers, together with the promise of more, has saved many a farm to its owner. Immediately after the lire, speculators hurried into the burned-over district with each, expecting to be able to buy the land at trifling prices; but the farmers, encouraged by the prompt assistance, have declined to sell. The Walking iHtrh. The walking match last night was de cidedly interesting, and was witnessed during the evening by a large number of ladies and gentlemen. Fowler has grit, and although his feet were blister ed all over the bottom, he made a splen did record for an amateur. Madame DuPree walked with her usual freshness and elasticity. Frank DuPree came on the floor at !) o'clock, and gave a fine exhibition of fast walking, making a mile and nine laps in 11 minutes. Fow ler did some good spurting in the mean time, showing that he was as wiry as ever barringj his feet. Between 8 and 9 in the evening is a good hour to see fine walking. At 9 o'ciocklast night Madame DuPree had walked 257 miles, and Fowler 137. Edwards, the first man walker, had made 72 miles, leaving the Madame 48 miles ahead. The rests taken during the day were from mid night to 2:30 a. m.; breakfast 7 to 8; 10 a. m. 30 minutes; dinner 1 to 2 p. m.; supper C to 7. Fowler's time expired at midnight, and Billy Foster took his place. Fowler finished his forty-eight hours walk last night at 12 o'clock with a rec ord of 150 miles. Jiolo From Carbonateville.
