I.— A decision was rendered by the supreme court to-day in the Phoenix Insurance company et al. against Charles E. Dyer, judge of the United States district court for the Eastern district of Wisconsin. This case, which is a petition to this court for a writ of prohibition, arises out of an action instituted by the Goodrich Transportation company in the Wisconsin district court, to limit its liaoil itv as owner of the steamer Oconto for damages caused by tire due to sparks from the chimneys of that vessel, while she was passing up Fox river, on her way to Green i.'.v The Phoenix Insurance company and the" other plaintifts now ask this court to grant a writ of prohibition to restrain the fudge of the district court from further pro ceedings, on the ground that that court is without jurisdiction to grant the relief sought by the owners of the steamer. This court holds that there is nothing in the ad miralty rules which warrants the jurisdic tion of the district court of Wisconsin and that the case is clearly one for a writ of prohibition. The writ will therefore be issued. The court does not, however, de cide the question whether or not the statu tory limitation of liability extends to the damages indicted by the tire in question so as to be enforceable in an appropriate court of competent jurisdiction.

Harrison has refused to honor a requisition from the governor of lowa asking for the surrender of William H. Bradbury, accused of forgery. NOTHIRDIERTI. Citizens of Wisconsin Think Rusk Has Been Governor Often Enough. Special to tbe Globe. Milwaukee, Nov. 1. — factor that is making itself known in the present canvass, and that promises to be damaging to Gov. Busk's chances, is the deep-rooted opposi tion the people have to giving a man a third term, no matter what he has done. Grant had as strong a hold on the nation, and especially on the Bepublican part of it, as a man could have; but he could not force a j breaking of the unwritten law which Wash- j ington laid down, and it looks now as ; though Rusk would have hard work to make the experiment succeed, even in Republican "Wisconsin. Expert politicians say that he •will be defeated and that the whole ticket will go down with him, while on the other hand his friends say that the "riot issue - ' has taken root among farmers, who will rally to his support, and that the workingmen's party will waste its strength on a separate ticket, and that in this manner Woodward will be defeated. It is noticeable, however, that Republicans who make the latter prediction seem to forget that the Prohibitionist is around with his little club looking for a head to hit. and that Busk's is just his size. A careful review of the situation shows it to be much mixed, but if both workingmen and Prohibitionists cast the vote they claim, it looks almost certain that the Democrats will win. One of IflcGill's "Farmers." fpecial to the Globe. Eau Claire, Oct 31.— 1t may not be generally known that a citizen of Wiscon- i sin, who is not and never was a citizen of j Minnesota, sat in the Republican state con- ' vention which nominated McGill. Charles | Culbertson, a lumberman of Augusta, this pounty, who has some land in a northern | county of Minnesota, near Warren, was sent as a delegate to the convention from that county. He was selected because he was an old chum and schoolmate of McGill in Pennsylvania, from which state they both came, and because he could be relied on to vote for McGill he was run in by the machine to sit in the Republican conven tion. He laughs about it down here, and says that when delegates were elected to the McGill convention the bosses were bound to get the right men if they had to import them from Wisconsin. Badly Hurt. Special to the Globe. _Em Faugo, Dak., Nov. 1. — Al Annis, a prominent citizen, riding in a political pro cession, was run awa y • by his own horse and thrown against a team on the Manitoba railroad, producing concussion of the brain. He is in a critical condition. ■ r THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. Its Torch was Lighted for the First Time Last Night—French Com ment. New York, 'Nov, I. The statue of liberty was lighted for the first time to-night and the fireworks, which were intended for i use on the evening of the unveiling were let off. The Courier Dcs Etats Unis this morning published the following special from Paris : For the last three days Paris has not been in France, but in America. Ail eyes have j been turned toward New York. It is difficult to describe with what eagerness the French I people waited tor news of the inauguration of the statue of liberty. They fairly devoured the telegrams as they arrived, and all the pa pers published and commented on them. M. Flouquet, president of the chamber of dep uties, received dispatches from Messrs. Shu ler and Desmores, the representatives of the chamber in New York, who were delighted with the reception accorded them by the American committee, by the authorities and by the people. Here is the language in which the delegates informed M. Flouquet of the inauguration ceremonies: To the President of the Chamber of Deputies: The statue of liberty was unveiled to-day with im posing solemnities, in the presence ot the presi dent of the United States, the French delega tion and an immense concourse of spectators. The ceremony was made the occasion of a warm and fervent demonstration in favor of republican France. • bIICLBK, _De_.moi.es. It is regarded here that the honor paid to the statue and to Bartholdi is an honor paid to the French republic. This feeling does not arise from national vanity. It is the old national sympathy finding vent anew. Frenchmen think of the past, aud think of the future, and they rejoice over the new era of friendship which has opened before the two nations, which have so many reasons for good will toward each other, and so few for standing aloof. Tnis sentiment finds expres sion ou all sides. Details are awaited with impatience, but enough is known to justify the enthusiasm which all Frenchmen mani fest over the event. The English are furious over this international episode. France iaughs at their fury, which does not in the least interfere with the general satisfaction. Buffalo, N. V., Nov. I.— M. Bar tholdi and the French delegation, with the exception of Count De Lesseps, arrived at Niagara Fails last night, accompanied by lion. Levi P. Morton. Hon. Chauncey M. Depew and others. The party spent to-day sight seeing at the falls and left for New York this evening. —___■— .IXOTBEK CHICAGO STRIKE. More Trouble at the Stock Yards- Six Thousand Men Quit Work. • Chicago, Nov. 1. — The threatened strike among the beef men at the stock yards was commenced this morning and nearly 6.000 men are now out from the slaughter houses of Swift & Co. and Nelson Morris: The trouble is over the adoption of the ten-hour system, the meu refusing to work the two extra hours without addi tional pay. In these two hours there are no hogs killed, and the employers say they cannot accept the ten-hour system. Each of the firms employ about three thousand men. There is a great deal of excitement, but the men are orderly, and insist that no act of theirs will precipitate and trouble. There is no indication that the police will be called upon to protect the two . houses. Further particulars from the stock yards are to the effect that Swift's men sent a committee to him on Saturday, and insisted on having an increase of 50 cents per day should the firm return to the ten hour system, and this was agreed to. This morning when the beef butchers went to work they found Foreman Welder, of Swift's, had discharged J^mes Mattbewson, one of the committeemen. They also found that the wages of the la borers had not been increased, and so they struck. They insist now on having Mat tbewson reinstated, and also a return of the eight-hour day. On bearing that Swift's men were out, the beef butchers employed by Nelson S. Morris went out. A crowd went down to Smith's machine shop and compelled the men to strike. After this they went to Armours, for the purpose of calling his men out, but this move was anticipated by the firm, who got a force of police to guard the principal entrances and the crowd was kept away. A member of the executive committee told a reporter that unless the two firms give in all the em ployes in the yards would be called out. Between two hundred and three hundred men in Libby, McNeil & Libby's canning establishment also went out. The reason alleged was that Morris' establishment partly supplies the canning firm with beef. A meeting of the strikers was held late this afternoon. No one except Knights oi La bor were admitted. Fully 4,000 non-union strikers congregated on the outside, anx iously awaiting the action of the Knights. Several speeches were made and wild ap plause greeted every reference to the eight hour day. A motion to make no comprom ise on anything short of eight hours, was carried by a unanimous vote. A commit tee was appointed to take charge of the strike and given full power to act. A Knight of Labor explained to-night that the men had been offered the reinstatement of the discharged man, but would now hold out for a return to the eight-hour system by all the beef houses. He said the proprie tors would be given till Saturday to decide what they would do. and if they persisted in running ten hours, a general strike would probably be ordered, which would include Swift's, Morris's and also Armour's slaughter houses. Silver in Kansas. Caldwell,, Kan., Nov. 1. — The dis covery of silver in this vicinity has caused much excitement. Samples of the ore were sent to the state assayer at Denver and the assayer of the mint at Philadelphia. The former reported au assay of 342 ounces of silver to the ton, the latter 310 ounces, each v. i li a trace of gold. The ore crops out in many localities, and Caldwell now pre sents the appearance of a mining town. He Killed Himself. Washington*. Nov. 1. — Martin D. Casey, a clerk in the treasury department, who died suddenly Saturday, was to-day found by a post mortem examination to have committed suicide. Poisen enough to have caused the death of two men was found in his stomach. He was a sufferer from disease of the heart and the severely painful nature of his disease is assumed to have led to the suicide. Fifteen Hundred Miles in a Skiff. Camden Special to Globe-Democrat. Myron Kice, Roselle Alley, Fred Grey and another companion, four young men from Oconomowoc, Wis., arrived here to day, having left Watertown, Wis., the first day of August in an open boat for a voyage to this section for the purpose of permanently locating. The two first named arrived yesterday, being sixty-four flays en route to Arkansas City, after traveling fif teen hundred miles by river. G»4? left them below Hannibal, having a malarial attack. The other companion threw up the sponge and quit the party at Fort Atkinson, and has not been heard from since. Grey is also here. Bice and Alley had quite a romantic and eventful trip, being capsized ones in the Dcs Moines rapids, but, saving their guns and luggage and righting then boat, resumed their journey. They report game scarce along the Mississippi, occasion ally killing geese and squirrels. They look rather worsted and deserve credit for their energy and staying qualifications. They were fairly welcomed by our people, who say young men of thair boyish appearance who have such pluck are sure to make good citizens for Arkansas. '^HEST. PATH, DAILY GLOBE. TUESDAY MOBNDsTG, NOVEMBER ' 2, 183 RUMBLE OF THE RAILS. Harry 0. Davis is Picked Up in Chicago for a Second Glass Pas senger. The Managers' Agreement Continued Until Dec. 1, With the Hope of Establishing a Pool. The Duluth Road Puts a Daily Train on Between St. Paul and Ashland. The "Wisconsin Central Runs Into the New Depot In Chicago- Various Topics. Thought Hi in a Cowboy. 11. C. Davis, as s i s t a n t gen eral passenger agent of the Northern Paci ; fic, has the rep utation of be ing the hand somest railroad man in the city of St. Paul. It is claimed that the eloquence of his smile always touches the hearts of the fair sex and wins for him an easy victory over their affections. Usually "Handsome Harry," as his inti mate friends choose to style him. dresses with careful taste and his linen is of the whitest but when he goes out for a jaunt over the road, he dons a flannel shirt, hangs a slouch hat on his head and conducts himself in regular second class passenger style. This was the case a few days ago when H. C. found himself in Chicago east-bound. He had on a flannel shirt and slouch hat, and a few days' growth of whiskers, added to his rustic appearance. He was at the union depot in Chicago and asked one of the train men where the Grand Trunk was. •'Up there," said the man, pointing to wards a tram that was standing in the depot. Davis went in the direction indi cated by the man and found that he had directed him to a second-class coach. 11. C. was somewhat inflamed, and going back to where the man stood said hotly, "what'n the d — do you mean; that's a second-class coach." "Well, that's what you want, ain't it?" re plied the man coolly. "What I want; no, I want a sleeper. "You want a sleeper," replied the man smiling and sizing Harry up in a suspicious kind of a way. "l'es. I want a sleeker," howled Harry. "I guess v second-class car will do you," calmly remarked the train man; "you'd better go down there and get a seat ' before they're all full." "Say, I guess you don't know who I am, do you?'' said Harry. "No, I don't believe I do," replied the train man. "Well, look here," said Harry, thrusting his hand down in his pocket and pulling up a handful ot passes. "Where'd you get all them," blurted out the train man, his eyes flying open, "you'd better stay with me till I can find an officer of the road." > He laid his hand or. Harry's shoulder as if to detain him. but Harry indignantly shook him off, and there would probably have been a turmoil right there but an offi cer of the road who knew. Harry happened along and recognizing him, told the tram man that he was the assistant general ticket agent of the Northern Pacific road, and had a hearty laugh at his expense. The train man wrinkled his brow and walked away muttering something about "if he was a passenger agent he hadn't ought to dress like a cowboy." Will They Fool? The agreement made between the man agers of the Northwestern roads Jnly 20 regarding passenger rates, which was ex tended from Oct. 1 to Nov. 1, has been ex tended to Dec. 1. Some of the railroad officers say that as the Southwestern roads havecompletedapool.it is probable that the Western and Northwestern lines will establish a pool before Dec. 1. What the old ■ roads are after is a gross money pool, but there is considerable doubt that this scheme will work, as the new roads have come in here, and especi ally the Burlington, which has given it out quietly that it proposes to make a very j loud bid for business. It has put on trains j that run between St. Paul and Chicago in twelve hours and twenty minutes, the same time the Omaha and Milwaukee roads put their limited trains through, and have an nounced, with no small flourish of trumpets, that all classes of tickets will be acknowl edged on their line. This has set the other roads to thinking, and the managers are trying to conclude whether it is best to "knuckle" to the Burlington or hold their heads up indifferently and puisne the even tenor of their ways regardless of what their neighbor does. If a gross money pool is established, unless some agreement is made between the roads, the Burlington will find it for its interest to allow none but first-class tickets on its twelve- hour trains. The road wants business, and as it runs none but "limited" trains between St. Paul and Chicago, there will be nothing for it to gain by truing into a gross money pool While the Milwaukee and Omaha roads are" anxious to establish a pool, it is probable that the new roads will standout and the pool will not be established. A Sew Daily Train. Ashland, the enterprising little Wisconsin town on Lake Superior, has been brought into closer relation with St. Paul by the St. Paul & Duluth railroad which yesterday put on a train between the two cities to run daily excepting Sundays. This is the only daily train running between these points and it is over the well-known "Tourists' Route" through the most picturesque por tion of northern Wisconsin. Leaving St. Panl the train departs at 8;20 a. in. arriving at Superior at •_ p. m. and Ash land at 7p. Da. Returning, leave Ashland at 8:10 a. m.. Superior 11:06 a. m. aud arrive at St. Paul at C:55 p. m. Watching -tlcCullous'h. J. S. McCullough, the genial assistant general passenger agent of the Omaha road, who is rilling the chair of General Passen ger Agent Teasdale during his absence, was treated to a pleasant surprise last night at his residence. 335 Somen* street. Mac was kept down town until about 8:30 p. m., when he came home and found ' a happy crowd of railroad and newspaper men, who had taken possession of his house and were waiting patiently for his coming. He was inclined to get rattled at first, but soon recovered his equiiiberum and laid himself out to make it pleasant for his friends. Late in the evening he was pre sented with a beautiful gold watch as a | token of esteem from the employes of the Omaha general office. It was a genuine surprise to Mac and it took him some time to catch his breath, but when he did he res ponded briefly and eloquently, after which there were cigars and social converse until a late hour. Sale of a Itoad. New York, Nov. I. A Boston special says: The Marquette, Houghton & Onton agon railroad has been sold to a syndicate of New York and Western capitalists/ The purchasers agree to pay $40 a share for all the common stock, and $110 for the pre ferred stock any time within sixty day. The road will be made a part of the through line between Duluth and Saulte Ste. Marie. A Sew Bridge Opened. Chicago, Nov. I.— Great Western Terminal company's new bridge across the river at Polk street was formally opened for traffic this morning.

I.— The will of Mrs. Cornelia M. Stewart, the widow of the late millionaire dry goods merchant, was filed for probate to-day. Mrs. Stawart be queaths $20,000 per year during life to her brother, Charles P. Clinch; to each of her sister, Anna, Emma and Julia Clinch, she leaves an annuity of §10,000 a year, to her niece. Sarah N. Smith, she leaves $250, --000; to Cornelia S. Butler she leaves $200, --000. and to each of her children, $50,000; to Kate A. Smith. $200,000r and to each of the remaining children of Sarah N. Smith. $100,000; to each of the children of her deceased sister, Louise, $50,000. All the rest of the estate, real and per sonal, to Charles J. Clinch, now of Paris, aud Henry Hilton. None of the legacies are to be payable until three years from the final probate of the will nor any of the annuities until six months after pro bate. In a codicil she revokes the bequest to Henry Hilton of one-half of her residuary estate, and instead bequeaths to him one half of the residue of her property and es tate in trust to complete the Stewart Me morial church now in course of construc tion by her at Garden City, L. 1.. known as the Cathedral of Incarnation; to build and endow forever two seminaries in con nection therewith, the whole, when com pleted, to be conveyed to the Episcopal church. By another codicil, Mrs. Stewart authorizes Henry Hilton, in regard to the share and portion of her property de vised and bequeathed to him in trust, to lease and dispose of it from time to time as he shall deem expedient; all such acts to be valid and as effectual as if made by the testatrix, and all expenses to be allowed him without further proof than that they were actually made. Judge Hilton is em powered to divide any surplus among the legal heirs. He is empowered to appoint or substitute a trustee or trustees to act in his place for any desired period, and at will to revoke said appointment, and by will ap point his successor, provided, however, that the said trust shall not continue longer than the lives of Kate A. and James C. Smith, named in the will. By another codicil, dated May 31, 1883.MM. Stewart bequeaths to Sarah N. Smith and her heirs one equal part of the share in the estate granted to her nephew, Charles J. Clinch. She gives $25,000 to be distributed by the executors among her household servants living with her at the time of her death. The last codicil is dated Nov. 30, 1885. After stat ing that the cathedral and St. Paul's school at' Garden City has been completed and endowed, it revokes all former clauses to the will and codicils thereto, except that the trustee is empowered at his discretion to build and endow a seminary of learning for women as described in previous codicils, and to erect such other institutions and buildings connected with the cathedral as may be necessary. Absolute title to the property is vested in the legatee to convey and transfer the property in accordance with the provisions of the will and codicils. The Visible supply. CniCAGO, Nov.

National Horse Show. New York, Nov. I.— The fourth annual exhibition of the National Horse Show as sociation opened this morning at the Madi son Square garden. There were about 300 exhibits, which is a failing off from the previous shows, owing, no doubt, to the fact that a show is now being held in Chi cago. It is in the classes for heavy draught horses that the exhibits have decreased, but the entries for carriage horses and thorough bred stallions at this year's show have never been surpassed. The judging of the ani mals began this afternoon. , ____ ____- Cleveland at Harvard. Boston, Nov.

I.— The Cunard line steamer Pavonia, before reported disabled and beached on Rainford's island, was floated this forenoon, the holes in her for ward compartment having been tempo rarily stopped, and started under her own steam for Boston.

I.—Ester brook & Co.. of this city, the only manu facturers of oleomaicarine in Connecticut, have suspended, as they regarded the gov government tax as prohibitory. From eighty to one hundred persons are thrown out of employment. -^_^— Bitter Bread. Complaint is frequently made by those who use baking powders that they leave in bread, biscuit, or cake raised by them a dis agreeable, bitter taste. This taste follows the use of all impure baking powders, and is caused either by their containing alum (introduced to make a cheap article), by the impure and adultered character of other in gredients used, or from the ignorance of their manufacturers of the proper methods of combining them. These baking powders leave in the bread residuum formed of lime, earth, alum, or other deleterious matter-, not always, though frequently, tastable in the food, and by all physicians classed as injurious to health. The Royal Baking Powder is free from this serious defect. In its use no residuum is left, and the loaf raised by it is always sweet, light and wholesome, and noticeably free from the peculiar taste complained of. The reason of this is because it is composed of nothing but absolutely pure materials, scientifically combined in exactly the proper proportions of acid and alkali to act upon and destroy each other, while producing the largest amount of raising power. We are justified in this assertion from the unqualified statements made by the Government chemists, who, after thorough and exhaustive tests, recom mended the "Royal" for Governmental use because of its superiority over all others in purity, strength and wholesomeness. There is no danger of bitter bread or biscuit where it alone is used.

Probable Outcome of the Election in Min nesota, After Summing Up All the Conditions. It Looks Like , Ames for Governor, and Rice, Wilson and McDonald for Congress. Minnesota Likely to Go Over to the > Democratic Column at the Next Presidential Election. .. The Prohibitionists Hope to Make a Good Showing- and Hennepin All i.i^iit. A Political Rpconnoiter. The noise of battle will fill the air to-day from the dawning until the gloaming, and the fight will be a most desperate one, every inch of ground being contested with great fierceness. The armies are about equal in point of numbers; the generals are pretty evenly matched so far as qualifica tions are concerned, and the grounds have been chosen so that neither has any partic ular advantage in the way of position. They rested upon their arms last night, in close proximity to each other, the campfires being plainly visible from the outposts, and the noise and bustle of preparation for the work of the coming day being wafted on the air to the ear of the alert and cau tious sentry. Every able-bodied man was at his post when the tatoo sounded last night, and all of them will be on hand when the reveille sounds at break cf day, with bayonet fixed and cartridge box well filled. These armies are a fine and well disciplined body of men the flower of Min nesota's citizenship — and their valor has been tested on many a sanguinary field. They will fight to the bitter end to-day and when the battle closes to-night the victors will have scars and wounds enough to show that the tight was not won easily, but only by desperate charges and counter charges and sorties, in which hundreds of brave soldiers met their fate. To-day will be fought in Minnesota the battle between the Democratic and Republican parties. THERE IS A KIEL 'STATE TICKET to be elected governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state auditor, state treas urer, attorney general, clerk of the supreme court and three judges of the supreme court. The people will also vote on an amendment to article Bof the state constitution. Five congressmen are to be chosen, and several district judges. An entire legislature — 47 senators and 103 representatives — are to be elected, ". which legislature will choose: a United States senator to succeed McMillan (Rep.). Ramsey and Hennepin — and most of the counties in the — will elect county tickets. The fight for governor will be very close, and the interest in it will draw out a large vote not so large, how ever, as was cast at the presidential elec tion in 1884. The falling oil' is estimated at 10 per cent. Both sides claim the elec tion of their candidates. The highest ma jority claimed for McGill (Rep.) is 15,000, but Republicans generally claim from 8,000 to 10,000. Blame had 41,620 majority in the state in 1884. The Ames .managers, on the other hand, claim his election by from 5,000 to 8,000 majority. The McGill men base their hopes on 5.000 majority in the Fifth congressional district. 8,000 in the Second. 2,500 in the First and 1,000 in the Third. The more liberal of them are dis posed to concede Ames from 2.500 to 5,000 majority in the Fourth. There are those, however, who claim that GcGill will have a small majority in the Fourth. These cal culators are generally inclined to reduce the Bepublican claims iii the Fifth, First and Third. Summed up and boiled down the Republican claims hover in the neighbor hood of 8.000 to 10,000 majority. Ames' friends expect 6,000 to 8,000 majority in the Fourth, 2.000 in the Third and 500 to 1,000 in the First. They DO NOT CONCEDE ANY MAJORITY for McGill in the Fifth, but allow 4.000 in the Second. It is a very difficult matter to predict with any degree of certainty, but Ames is conceded to have the best chance for election. He has nothing of a serious nature that can be urged against him so as to detract from bis strength, while McGill is recognized as a very weak candidate, Ames is particularly strong with the labor ing men and the soldiers, and he will poll a heavy vote among the farmers owing to McGill's known connec tion with the wheat ring, the Millers' asso ciation and other monopolies. There is also a serious defection in the ranks of the Scandinavians, who have heretofore voted the Republican ticket almost solidly. These dissenters are for Ames. This defection is especially apparent in the Fifth district, in which reside Gilman and Congressman Nelson. The Republicans of that district are very sore over Oilman's treatment in the state convention. If McGill does not have over 10.000 or 12.000 majority, Min nesota will be one of the doubtful states at the next presidential election. If Ames gets 5,000 majority the Democratic candi date for president will carry the state by from 15,000 to 20,000. McGill will run be hind Ids ticket and Ames will run ahead of his. There is no opposition to the three candidates for supreme judge—Vander burgh, Mitchell and Dickinson, except by the Prohibitionists. Two of the judges named are Republicans and one a Demo crat. An amendment to article 8 of the constitution is to be voted on, providing that the permanent school funds of the state may be loaned upon interest at the rate of FIVE PER CENT. TER ANNUM to the several counties or school districts of the state, to be used in the erection of county or school buildings. No opposition has yet been manifest and it will probably be adopted almost . unanimously. The Prohibitionists have full stale and congressional tickets in the field. and in most senatorial and a good many of the representative dis tricts, also local tickets in a number of counties. Of course they will cut no especial figure in the contest, and elect none but a few local candidates, but they expect to poll a largely increased vote in the state. An increased Prohibition vote is always considered in the interest of the Democrats. The Democrats claim the elec tion of three congressmen certain — Wilson in the First, Mac Donald in the Third and Rice in the Fourth — with .a probability of electing Bullis in the Second. The latter is making a still hunt and will run like a wild horse. The result in the Second is likely to astonish everybody. Nelson (Rep.) has no opposition in the Fifth. The Dem ocrats claim Wilson's election by from 1.100 to 5.000; Mac Donald, 1,000 to 2,500; Rice, 1.200 to 4,000. The Republicans, on the other hand, claim Lovely in the First by from 1,500 to 2,500; Herbert in the Third by about the same, and Gilfillan in the Fourth by from 2,000 to 4.000. Claims of from 5,000 to 7.000 majority are made for Lind in the Second. It is conceded that the Democrats will make large gains in the legislature. The Republicans now have a majority of 103 on joint ballot, the parties being divided: Republicans, 103; Dem ocrats. 47. The local Democratic tickets ! in Ramsey and Hennepin counties are cer- j tain to be elected, almost to a man, and the ' Democrats will make a better showing than j ever before, throughout the state. There '. will be Democratic gains in almost every I county. The campaign has been one of the i most notable in the history of the state, and I the Democrats have succeeded in thoroughly stirring up and scaring the Republicans. The latter have never stumped the state before as they have this year. _ ■ A Beautiful Present.
