Otter Tail Will «o for Ames? Special to the Globe: Fergus Falls, Minn.. Nov. I.— The Democratic county central committee to-day positively claims Otter Tail county for Ames by a small majority. They sta'e that reports received by them from every part of t ! county demonstrate this without ques tion. The disaffection among the farmers is general, and in every locality the major ity will be for at least the head of the Dem eratic ticket The vote for Ames will be especially large among the Scandinavians, who are almost to a man opposed to McGill and the wheat ring. LOVELY AT ALBEBT.LEA. ito tail* lo Deny lie Report "flint lie Wat, a Copperliead--_.lcUill'* Speech. Social to the Globe. 'Albert Lea. Minn., Nov. I. Before the Lovely meeting this afternoon the band and drum corps paraded through the streets for nearly three-quarters of an hour. When the meeting was called to order in the rink the seats were about one-third occupied. Before the meeting the Lovely people had floaded the seats with a villianous circular, tilled with lies concerning different indi viduals of the city. Dr. Wedge called the meeting to order and announced John L. Gibbs as chairman. Mr. Gibbs said: "To morrow we will elect a full Republican ticket." He referred very briefly to the tariff question, and related a little story of a down-east farmer. After referring to the grand old party and its great progress in the last twenty-five years, he intro duced Lovely, who said he had fought a hard fight and he could assure his friends tiiat the First congressional district was safe. He said that he had reason to thank bis friends for their kindness in supporting the ticket not perhaps in respect to him, but FOR THE PARTY'S SAKE. Mr. Lovely said be had been speaking for nearly four weeks, not in his own behalf but in behalf of the Republican party. He referred to the St Paul Globe as having spoken ot him as a handsome man. He Bald that was lie number one. He enume rated lies of similar character up to three, and then some gentleman in the audience asked him how it was about his Copperhead record. Mr. Lovely replied that he would attend to that question later. He referred to the well-known John Slater case, and acknowledged that be gave it up when he found he had got hold of the wrong man, but declared he would put up $200 and defy any man to prove that he or Mr. Green re ceived a single dollar out of the S4OO which it cost Mr. Slater. He closed his speech by saying he was willing to trust the election to the good judgment of the voters of Free born county, after which he promised to give the citizens another speech this evening, in which he would discuss the issues of the day and vindicate his character. ANDREW E. M CO ILL was next introduced. He said he was not an orator, and that his political life had been a quiet one. He said he was charged with being a millionaire, which he was sorry to say was not so. He was brought up on a farm and his sympathy was natu rally with the farmer. He did not belong to any ring or monopoly. He did not en thuse his audience. He closed his remarks by paying a high compliment to the nom inee for congress, Mr. Lovely. Hiram Barber, of Dakota, was then introduced for the purpose of clearing up Lovely's Copperhead record. He said Lovely was a good fellow, with only one fault. He is like an old gun, apt to go off at any time when least expected, and strike some one between the eyes. He further said he could talk the hall empty, which fact he came near demonstrating. The Republicans had a grand rally and torchlight procession to-night There were about 200 ill line among whom were many boys, notwithstanding the fact that the committee advertised that no boys would be allowed to carry torches in the proces sion. There was a little illumination and NOT MICH POWDER. Some effort was made to have the Re publicans illuminate their residences, but strange to say even at the home of the candidate for congress . there was but small enthusiasm shown in this direction, there being but two residences dimly illuminated. The evening meetiug was a repetition of the one held in the aft ernoon, except that G. W. Hazelton, of Wisconsin, said lie believed John A? Lovely was not a copperhead during the war. The meeting was largely attended by Republi cans and Democrats alike, curious to hear what .tat amenta Lovely would make in re gard to the many letters circulated exposing his crooked transactions in this county. To-morrow will be a big day here, as eAery voter is determined to turn out and show his preference at the polls. Waved the Uloody Shirt. Special to the Globe. Eau Claire, Wis.. Nov. I.— The Re publicans closed the campaign with a meet- ' ing to-night addressed by United States Senator Spooner, who severely censured the Southern states for going out of the Un ion, and called on all patriots to vote against the Don federates. He glorified the protective tariff, belabors the administra tion for keeping so much surplus and not providing sea coast, defenses and apologized for Gov. Rusk's shooting to kill at Milwau kee by describing bow New York mobs burned orphan asylums in 1864. , AY 11? SO .fl AT Ul.\«.\.\. Ail Address Devoted TtZaii-Iy to a Personal Defense and Abuse of JtHiS'-. Wilson. Special to the Globe. Winona, Minn.. Nov. I. The liveliest campaign ever conducted in the First con gressional district has ended. It has been a remarkable campaign in many ways, and to-morrow's election will show how great has been the uprising in the Republican ranks against a candidate thrust upon them against their will. The canvass in Winona continued with increased vigor to-day. and the rumors set afloat on Saturday that the Lovely crowd were freely using money here to influence the election were revived again to-day, and were evidently well grounded. The outlook in Winona county to-night for Judge Wilson is certainly very flattering, and" in every town assurances are given that he will run far ahead of his ticket. The Republicans held their last meeting to-night, Ex-Senator Windom being the speaker. It was exten sively reported that Windom would deliver his abusive speech on Judge Wilson, and the curiosity of the people to hear the gen tlemen on liis favorite theme brought forth a large audience. He was introduced by Hon. A. W. Yale, who started in with a lengthy introductory speech, making a bid for the German vote and the support of the Knights of Labor, and then began a tirade against Kelly aud Dorau. Mr. Windom commenced by referring to his twenty-five years' connection with the Republican party, and protested that the Republican majority in this state would be from 25.000 to 30,000. He then said he would confine himself principally to local questions, aud THE AUDIENCE GREW EXPECTANT. knowing that Mr. Windom had been brought here to-night for the sole purpose of mak ing a spiteful attack upon Judge Wilson. The audience had not long to wait. After getting off the old chestnut about the Re publican party never having violated a pledge, while the Democrats had never kept one, he alluded to President Cleveland, and said the country had not been pros perous since Mr. Cleveland had been presi dent, and that the Democrats had done nothing or importance in the twenty months they had been in power. He criti cized the veto power which President Cleve land had seen fit to exercise so frequently, and then went on to say what be would do if he was president, trying to make a point by telling bow many pension bills he would sign if he had the chance. Then he reached the labor question. and endeavored to draw the sympathy of the laboring man to the Republican nominee for congress, by say ing that the Republican party was the first and only true friend of the laboring man. He dwelt somewhat upon the question of PAUPER LABOR, and then made an attack on Mr. Wilson, which formed the text for the next hour and a half's talk. Ho referred to the charge that he did not pay Ins taxes. He said that he had but little taxable personal property, as nearly all his property was in real estate. Furthermore, he never owned, but one bond in his life, and never had any interest in any railroad stock. He ex plained the Northern Pacific land deal by saying that at a time when the Northern Pacitic stock was at a very low figure be purchased a large tract of land and paid cash for it out of ids own pocket' During the first part of Mr. Wisdom's attack, people from different parts or. the house started for the door, and the speaker said they were Judge Wilson's friends, and he would wait until they had left. At this a number of other joined the disappearing voters. Then Mr. Windom resumed. He closed at 10 p. in. A Kally at Hutchinson. Special to the Globe. Hutchinson. Minn., Nov. 1. — A large congregation of the citizens of our village and the surrounding country assembled at the skating rink this evening to listen to an able address by W. H. Tripp, of Minneap olis, who discoursed to some length upon the merits of the two candidates before the people for governor of the state. In the course of his speech he brought up the rail road bond subject, which has been used by the Republican speakers here for the last two or three weeks as a means of throwing discredit upon upon the last Democratic governor. He fully and clearly explained it, leaving the blame where it should rest, viz.: with the Republican party. He also spoke quite extensively of the various rings and monopolies of St. Paul and Minneapolis and their influence over the workingmen and farm ers. He showed the people what they could expect if these rings were to longer remain in power. He spoke of Ames: as the. man to set the people free from this gang and ring rule; of his interest in any and all things partaining to any of the va rious working classes. He spoke of McGill as the clerk of the ring-rule party for eighteen years, where he received the edu cation and training that was to tit him for governor. Ames was the associate of the people among whom he received an educa tion that fits him for governor as a repre sentative of and for the people. In closing he invited the people to go to the polls to morrow and vote for their best interests, and assured them that he had no fear of the result. All About Judge Severance. To the Editor of the Globe. Judge Severance, of Mankato, thestatinch est and best beloved Deinociat in the Second district, has absolutely refused to vote lor Atu'-s. on the grounds of the personal char acter of that candidate. Ju'iire Severarce tins never before bolted the Democratic ticket, consequently his election now is all the more Significant. Down with the bosses! 1 notice the above item in the Winona Republican, and 1 have no hesitancy in sa\ ing that it misrepresents Judge Sever ance. Last spring, when the "kickers" talked of nominating a ticket independent of the regular Democratic ticket, and Dr. Ames was mentioned as their probable candidate. Judge Severance may have said that he would give no encouragement to the movement and would not vote for Ames. I believe this is the only grounds upon which this statement is made. Judge Severance takes no active part in politics, because of his judicial position, but he is a Democrat, and I have the best of reasons for saying that he is in full accord with his party. John C. Wise. Mankato, Minn., Oct. 30. Jtlrn. Fixen at Waseca. Special to the Globe. Waseca. Minn.. Nov. I.— E. S. Toby called the largest meeting of ladies and gen tlemen of this campaign to order in the court house to-night. After prayer by Rev. J. A. Stemeu Mrs. Laura G. Fixen made a very able address on '"Clear Brains and Happy Homes.*' in which she carefully reviewed the history of each party on the temperance question, and proved conclu sively that all the Republicans are after was votes and nothing more, and the only party to be trusted was the Prohibition party. She made an earnest appeal for the men to vote for their homes instead of the saloons. Hon. James E.

St. I.oui «. County E'rospccts. Special to the Globe. Duluth. Minn., Nov. -There is un usual interest in the election, not only as regards Amos, who will run very much ahead of his ticket, but on the local legisla tive ticket. The vote of the county will be Dearly double that of two years ago, when Blame had 1,500 majority. The laboring element is strongly favorable to Ames. The Republicans hope to carry the county. Whiteman, the Democratic candidate for the senate, believes he will be elected, and Kendall, independent, for the house, is confident. Monger and Knox, however, are equally confident. Chandler, Demo crat, for the house, is traded off for Ken dall. The Democrats will elect the auditor, sheriff and jndge of probate, the independ ents the cierk of tiie court, the Republicans the treasurer and auditor and probably at torney. The Tribune and Herald, the Re- | publican dailies, support the Demobratic state and local ticket, and the News stands alone for the Republican. A Biff meeting at Anoka. Special to the Globe.

Cheering Prospects for Democratic (.a...* — A Kit; Victory l-'robable. Special to the Globe. Mason City, la.. Nov. I. We are on the eve of election, and everyone is anxious as to the result. In lowa the Democrats, under the leadership of Cate Sells, candi date tor secretary of state, and under the judicial directorship of Edward H. Hunter, chairman of the state central committee, have made the most out of the campaign. Information received from headquarters this forenoon says that there is a good and favorable outlook for the Democrats to elect Mr. Sells secretary of state, and as good a chance to elect six out of the eleven congressmen. The Democrats made a wise step in the beginning in calling an early convention, and in adopting a good plat form with candidates upon it against whom not a word could be said. The NEXT shrewd ACT was in making an aggressive campaign, compelling the Republicans to take the defensive, and never allowing them to change front. The working materal fur nished by the Republicans for the Demo crats was good. The state debt, amount ing to nearly 5i. 000,000, all contiacted within five years in open defiance of the constitution, which says no debt shall be contracted for any purpose by the state to exceed 5250.000 was a damaging weapon. The registration law adopted by the legis lature last winter for the sole Durpose of disfranchizing the foreign voters, who, on account of prohibition had deserted the Republican party and joined the Dem ocracy, was another instrument with which the Democrats pierced the Republican ranks and have been able to consolidate a gallant army of voters who will march to morrow upon the shattered and disordered hosts of a culpable and degraded party. This was not all the working" material we had. The Republican legislature last win ter made one of the MOST DEGRADING EFFORTS to perpetuate their party that has ever been I Continued on Fourth ■ ate. A LIVELY ROW. Minneapolis the Scene of the Great- : est Political Excitement Ever Known, The Republicans Turn Out to Close Their Campaign With a Parade, While the Democrats Capture the '' Streets and Sidewalks in Out- Numbering Crowds. Republicans Begin a light on the Demo crats and Get Into a General Melee. The Police Endeavor to Quell the Tur moil and Were Assaulted by the Men With Torches. A Series of Street Rows Ensue in Which Nearly a Hundred People Ara Injured. Hoodlums on Both Sides Are Responsiblo Tor an Affair Altogether Disgraceful. The Minneapolis Republicans closed their campaign last night with a torchlight pro cession. It was the effort of the campaign, aud the result was very satisfactory to the Democrats. Ever since the great Demo cratic demonstration on Saturday night the Republicans have been terribly frightened, and they knew that they must outdo that ';■ procession or give up all hopes of carrying the city to-day. To this end they made a thorough canvass of the city to secure torch bearers, begging and imploring some, buy ing others, and urging still more by repre senting it to be their solemn duty to turn out, if only for this once. Tlie result was that men who had never appeared in line before came out. shouldering torches and carrying brooms; boys came out and got in line, and old men took their places. The line, according to various estimates, inclu ded from •__, SOO to 5.000 men aud boys, de pending on the author. It was a very good procession, as all admitted, but scarcely a marker to the tremendous outpouring of the Democracy on Saturday evening. Several ! counts placed tba number in line ranging from 2,700 to 3,200. but Secretary Craig, of the Republican committee, * gave it as his belief there were 5,000 to 7,000. Accept ing his highest figure, the result stands as follows: Democratic line 9.000 Republican line 7,000 Among these 7.000 were a great many boys and a comparatively small number of torches, the marchers supplying their places with brooms and lanterns, some few carrying brand new tin pails. THE SCENES ON TUE STREET baffle description. Early in the evening the hoodlums iv both parties came out in great numbers and thronged the streets to almost impassibility. Washington avenue, be tween Nicollet and First avenue, was the general center, the presence of both head quarters attracting them. Long before the procession formed heated discussions arose and words led to blows, but nothing of a serious nature occurred. On Saturday night the Algonquin club had been assaulted with eggs on First avenue, and the dis graceful occurrence, which the Republicans called great fun, was the cause of some of the disturbances, It was discussed vigor ously and viciously, and led to more than one fight. Anticipating trouble, half-a dozen officers had been stationed along the avenue within a block, and the wisdom of the move was apparent later on. The street contained the worst elements of both parties, and the state of feeling was such that an outbreak seemed imminent at any moment. THE TROUBLE BEGAN about 7 o'clock, wlien a drunken Republi can, at the mouth of lock-up alley, swag gered by with a broom on his shoulder, He made several insulting remarks, and presently pushed a bystander with the han dle. In a moment he was set upon and the broom taken. His partisans endeavored to recover it and a small fight ensued, but the police promptly checked it. Presently another tight over a broom occurred and the broom was set on tire. Another prompt interference prevented a disturbance and extra officers were sent to the scene. Nothing of note occurred until the proces sion came along. The street was so crowded that the throngs were very close to the line of march and the paraders and the crowd interclianged campaign epithets freely, but in general good humor. It then looked as if everything might pass peace ably along, but at 9 o'clock an incident oc curred which changed the current of affairs. At lock-up alley a man waved a flag and cheered for Ames. A marcher, in his anger, punched him with the butt of his torch in the stomach; the other seized the torch and struck back, and then THE ROW BEGAN. First it was one side and then the other. For a moment quiet would prevail and then a new provocation would lead to a new tight. Torches aud brooms were used on one side, and sticks and fists on the other. thicks were thrown from the procession into the crowd and from the crowd into the procession. A disturbance at one point would move : the crowd there and paraders and watchers would rush over to take part. The police did valiant work and prevented a dozen times what seemed likely to result in an indiscriminate row. It was generally remarked that the officers seemed to take the part of the paraders and that many of the assaults made were by the paraders upon the very officers who were doing their utmost to preserve and prevent voilence. A dozen times the police were overpowered and beaten back by torch bearers when they rushed in to prevent a collision. It was noticed that every sepe rate disturbance of the dozen' that occurred was precipitated by the paraders, THE PROVOCATION being offered by them. Their assaults were usually upon small boys, three or four newsboys suffering from cuts inflicted by torches and burns from the lights. One boy was badly cut by a knife or razor in the hands of one of the colored paraders. The excitement ebbed and flowed. Word was passed along the line that trouble might be expected, and as fresh men came up they carried their torches menacingly, oocasionaly thrusting them into the faces of the crowd and even punching the officers. When the first trouble occurred Dr. Lee, who had exerted himself to maintain order, sent word to police headquarters and had a dozen officers sent up. Some of these were stationed at the crossing below and warned the coming paraders to refrain from- their disorder, which had the final effect of restoring quiet In the meantime, however, con siderable damage had been done, nearly one hundred men had been variously hurt by blows with torches and one or two of the marchers had been beaten with sticks. The affair was altogether disgraceful and the Republican cause win suffer from it to-day. • THE DISORDERLY MARCHERS armed with torches . seemed to search for opportunities to insult and attack the crowd and the moment a fight occurred and the poliQe endeavored to stop it, they were assaulted and pounded with torches, a number of them being seriously injured. Ai times sticks, stoaes and torches were flying about in quantities and Democrats. Republicans and Prohibitionists suffered alike. All parties were . concerned in it, but the blame rests entirely with the Re publicans as aggressors. They should have known better, as they were evidently largely outnumbered and though better armed, they were worsted in the fight. The list ot casualties is not complete as many ofthe injured hastily escaped knowing they were wrong and liable to arrest. As rapidly as possible the participants were arrested and afterward released on bond. The moment the procession was over every thing quieted down and the affair was over. There was a great deal of hot discussion afterward and finally the entire matter cooled down and became a subject for gen eral saloon talk in the city. It was agreed everywhere that the Republicans had de liberately provoked a tight and assaulted the police and they got the worst of it. These It ere Injured. The following is a list of the officers who were injured last night while trying to stop the disturbance occasioned by the hoodlums of both parties: Capt. Mc- Kiewatt, knocked in the head and cut; J E Ward, knocked down and kicked in the back; George Blake, clothing torn off; Fred Dellaven, pants torn, knocked down, head cut and hand bruised; James Grattan, had cut and badly bruised; Detective King, knocked down and pounded badly; C. W. Curtiss, hit iv the head and back; Sergt. Nelson, struck on the shoul ders and back with torches and stones; John Morrisy. hit in the neck ' with a rock; Gus Licherman, struck across the back with torches and badly hurt; Detective Hoy, knocked down by a rock. Mr. Robinson, president of the colored Ames club, called at the Giobe office after the trouble last night and said: The whole transaction was a shame and a disgrace to civilization, but we feol proud that the Democratic party can say truthfully that it Is free from any blame in the matter, and as for the report that I was the instigator of the disturbance, whj - , that is a lie. There are ' a hundred men who can prove that I was nowhere in it. The colored Ames club has never done anything that is dishonorable. It will pay to watch Lawrence Oliver, for he is in the Fourth ward and carries the ganar. R. F. Jones was one of the mounted Re publicans who several times charged ou the crowd from the procession, knock. people down and endangering life and limb. One of the colored torch bearers became in censed at a small boy who yelled "rats" on Hennepin avenue, and made a slash with a razor that cut the lad's cheek open. a Bit ITS' ii-.'* uc.;n. A IfJother and __5.-_.jo Injured by a Kadical Torch Ueurtr. Near the corner of Washington and First avenue south, Minneapolis, a woman with an infant in her arms was standing watch ing the procession. One of the ruffians who carried a torch and was decorated with a McGill badge struck at someone with his torch. The person for whom the blow was intended escaped, but the heavy tin lantern struck the child on the head. The mother fainted, and the woman and child were with difficulty removed to a place of safety. The woman, whose name couid not be ascertained, resides on Sixteenth avenue south and was taken home in a hack. The child is pronounced by physicians as likely to die from the effects of the blow. The distracted mother could give no description of the brute, except that she would know him again if she should see him. i. rude Points. County Attorney Frank F. Davis, who was a rabid Democrat iv 1880, and stumped the state for Hancock then, made a great display of himself last night and by bis language lost many votes. it sounds nice to bear the county attorney gel out in the street and howl, "It serves the d — Democrats right. it's a pity their necks were not all broken." He icuvo another illustration of his deep political sagacity by getting up in the police court, when some of the hoodlums were arraigned, and pleading their cause because they happened to be Republicans. Henry Allen, of Chicago, while standing on the corner of Nicollet and Washington ave nues, was approached by three torch bearers who ran out of the processiou and asked him, "What in h 1 he was doing , there." Upon his replying tbat he was watching the pro cession, which seemed to ho a small one, one of the men said: "You d d , you can't stand there aud say that." With these words he struck Mr. Allen on the head with a club and knocked him down. That handsome man, who formerly blacked boots on the streets of Minneapolis (accord lug to his own statement) came out v o .rin# a new silk hat and a light coat. A Republican torch b< arer who bears the distinguish el Freeman P. no love, waited until Freeman's back was turned and then smashed him with his torch. Tie lawyer's hat was driven down over his head, hiding his neat little side whiskers, and the force of tbe blow split it from top to bottom. F. P. appeared later on wearing a soft felt hat. Eight or ten men from the procession made an unprovoked attack ou a few men near Lock-up alley, and a free fight ensued. The aggressors aud some of the bystanders were arrested and takeu before Judge Mahouey. "Honest" John li. Giltillan was present with , Freeman P. Lane, and put up bail money for all the Republicans. Tlie Democrats were allowed to remain in the cosy chambers of tbe First precinct station. On the corner of Seventh street and Hen nepin avenue a little boy named Collins called out "hurrah for Ames." while the pro cession was passing. A big ruffln rushed out and struck the little boy with a club, knock ing him down. A mob then took up the fight, and in a second a dozen men were on the top of the little boy, who was picked up and car ried into a drug store near by. His head was badly cut and one arm was crushed quite badly. Detective King", while endeavoring to keep the crowd back so that the procession could pass, was struck in the face with a torch by a burly negro. This started another riot, and for a few moments the air was full of torches, brooms, clubs, etc. King was picked up, and in a few moments recovered sufficiently to collar his man and take him to the lock-up. Adjt. Ward, while endeavoring to protect a Republican whom other Republicans were pounding, was sat upon by some of the torch bearers who thought it was a Democrat be was defending:. One big individual hit Ward on the bead with a torch and Ward let out with his right, laying bis assailant out stiff. • On the corner of Washington and Hennepin avenue two Republican horsemen left the smalls procession and deliberately rode into the crowd of ladies on the crossing. At the point of a revolver two men compelled the scoundrels to dismount, and then gave them a well-deserved thrashing. The police, in many cases, while keeping the crowds back so that the procession could get through, were assaulted by men in the parade, and three or four were seriously In jured. One Republican, who was standing in the crowd, drew a billy and struck one officer, knocking him down. John B. Gilfillan afforded a rich spectacle up in the municipal court, crawling to the men who had laid themselves liable to the law, in order to gain their votes. He showed that he thoroughly understands tho art of Republican wire-pulling. A bystander, a Democrat, was assaulted In front of Barge's, on the corner of Washing ton and First avenue south, by a Republican torch-bearer,, and severely cut in the face.

HIS AIM WAS NOT GOOD Attempted Murder of the Surveyor of the Port of New York by an Ex-Olerk. Several Shots Fired, but no Wounds In flicted of a Serious Nature—The . Man Arrested. Suicide of a Waiter After Trying to Kill the Astor House Chef at New York. § Mysterious Assassination of John Graham, a Colored Magistrate* Near Memphis, Term. Surveyor Beattie Shot. New York, Nov. 1. — Surveyor of the Port of New York Beattie was shot at about noon to-day in his office atthe custom house by a discharged inspector, who fired live or six shots. Surveyor Beattie was wounded in two places. One of the bullets, it is said, entered the groin. He now lies in the custom house. The attendants state his condition is not considered serious. The inspector who fired the shots is named Bor rall, and was discharged last week. The would-be assassin gained some distinction in the war. He was for about a dozeu years attached to the custom house. About a week ago the surveyor dismissed him from the service, it being proven that he was in the habit of exacting money from the poor immigrants in Castle garden. The specific charge on which he was removed was com pelling an immigrant to pay S3 duty on a sewing machine. He came to the office about noon to-day and gained entrance to the surveyor's private office iv the back of the building, fronting on South William street. At 12:30 o'clock the REPORTS OF THE PISTOL SHOTS were heard by private Secretary Louis Nichols and examiner Thomas Hyitt. The discharged inspector rushed instantly out of the private office, pistol in hand and ran through the corridor to the exit into Han over street. A man attempted to stop him and he yelled, '"If you touch me I'll kill you." The man stepped back and Borrall ran along to Beaver street, into which he turned and ran to the common exchange. A number of citizens followed in pursuit. Finding escape impossible the man turned and ran into the arms of a policeman. He was trembling with fear and seemed to anticipate that his pursuers would harm him. He said to a policeman. "For god's sake arrest me." He was taken to the old slip station house and locked up. He described himself as being seventy-two years old, married aud living at No. 559 Sixth avenue. He said he was a native of Brazil. Mean while his victim was being cared for. The news of the shooting, greatly exaggerated, spread rapidly. A large squad of police had all they could do to keep the corridors clear. Large crowds of anxious inquirers surged around the doors. A number of physicians appeared to render aid to the wounded man. Surgeon Beattie, who is attached to the custom house, was promptly on hand. After examination he concluded that the wounds were not of a dangerous character. One bullet passed through the palm of the right hand and a second pene trated the thigh. So far as r hurried ex amination could disclose, the latter bullet took a downward course and lodged in the muscles of the upper part of the leg. Sur veyor Beattie remained conscious and en dured the pain with great fortitude. He spoke calmly to those who were admitted to the room and made close inquiries of his medical attendant as to the nature of his injuries. The fact that he was not mor tally wounded and had not received five bullet wounds as was at first reported, was speedily communicated to the surging crowd in waiting, and relieved their anxiety in a marked maimer. The various heads of de partments in the building, Abram S. Hewitt ar.d many others called to inquire about his condition. Comer Levy took the atement of Sur veyoi Beat^'t this afternoon. He said the pisoner was removed from bis post of inspector on his recommendation, as he had ILLEGALLY TAKEN MONET from an immigrant girl. The surveyor was sitting at his desk when the door was thrown open and the prisoner entered with a pistol in his hand, exclaiming: "Now. by God, I'll teach you." He fired three shots, two of which took effect, one through the fleshy part of the surveyor's left hand, and tho other struck the crest of the ilium, glancing in an inward direction. This ball has not yet been extracted. The prisoner when captured was perfectly calm, admitted the shooting, and added that he did it because Beattie refused to listen to the men who went to him to ap peal for his reinstatement. The prisoner was taken before the injured official, who unhesitatingly identified him. Bieral said: ••'Yes, lam the man that done it. He took the bread and butter out of my family's mouth." Tlis prisoner was subsequently taken to the Tombs police court, when he confessed to Justice Murray having fired the shots, and . said he did it because Beattie had discharged him without cause. • He was born in Valparaiso in 1814 and came to this country at 14 years of age. When 25 years of age he en listed on the frigate Columbia for a three years cruise around the world, during which time he assisted in burning three Chinese towns for firing on American ships. He next ???y SPECULATED IN HORSES, by which he accumulated considerable money, aud in 1849 went to California, where he added to his wealth. He met John Morrissey and others there. He was a friend of Bill Poole, who was shot. He served in the First California regiment in the war of the rebellion, and at the battle of Ball's Bluff rescued Col. Banker's body and killed the slayer. For this he was given a medal and a pension of $30 a mouth. He had been in the custom house twenty-five years, receiving his first ap pointment through Gens. Hancock and Sickles. He denies the charge of taKing §2 from an immigrant girl, for which he was discharged, and says that after shooting the surveyor he turned the pistol on himself, but was so nervous that the bullet went through his hat. He was held to answer for the shooting. The wounded man re tained consciousness throughout, and as soon as it was considered safe was put into an ambulance and taken to his ho me.
