SHOWER GF BULLETS. Many Shots Fired in a Street Row in the Village of Homestead. Three Negroes Badly Beaten in a Fracas With a Lot of Strikers. Several Strikers Wounded by Revolvers in the Hands of Negroes. ; Seven of the Africans Ar rested—The Town Is Now Quiet Again. HOMESTEAD„Pa., Nov. 13.— Not since the famous 6th of July have flying bul lets been so plentiful as this afternoon. Inside of twenty minutes over fifty shots were fired, and Fourth avenue was in a state of panic and disorder. Rumors are plentiful of persons being wounded, but the only ones seriously hurt appar ently are three strikers named McFad den. Jones and Pilchard. They have •ill flesh wounds. Three negroes are also badly beaten. The fight started on Fourth avenue about 4:30 o'clock. The colored men who work in the mill were walking toward the mill, when they met ,a striker who said something to them. They replied, and the striker knocked one down. With the same extraordi nary suddenness which always charac terizes Homestead, so far as the gather ing of crowds is concerned, ibout twenty persons, Including cPildrcn and women, assembled in a few moments. Doth ne groes fought hard, but stones began to By, and the men were besting them, when one of the colored men drew a re volver and opened fire. By ibis time '.here were fully 500 persons on the street, and the bullets whistling over their heads started a panic. Three men knockec down the second negro, and when he arose he bad two revolvers in bis hands. _j»_i lit* Started to Bun, shooting wildly backward as lie did so. it is said a boy received a flesh wound In the leg, hut his name is unknown. By the 'lime the colored men bad reached City Farm lane, six other colored men came uJong and were assaulted. They all drew guns and ran down Fourth avenue in tho direction of McClure street, near where their lodging house is situated. Sonic one hurled a brick which hit Washington Paul on the head. He opened lire and so did the others. In a minute the air was full of bullets, and in front of the colored men there was a terrified crowd rushimc into houses for shelter or dodging up alloys. A woman, too frightened to run, stood on the street, and as they passed one of the non-unionists shot at. her three times. One bullet passed through her shawl, which she bail thrown over her head. Two bullets went through windows of residences, and one buried itself in the window sill of a second-story frame house, occupied by the Coulter family, who were looking out at the time. While the negroes were running men, dodging to alleys, would hurl stones at them. When the colored men .reached their house they ran In and barred the door, in a minute the house was sur- i rounded by aii Infuriated Crowd who soon tore down the fence and shat tered every window with stones. When the deputies and borough officers ar rived some persons were suggesting that they leave the house, and someone, began to yell, "Let's lynch the nigger black sheep." This was taken up, and cries ot "Hang 'em" were heard on all 6ides. The officers went in to arrest the colored men, and they found them huddled in one room, terrified and ex pected to be killed. One man. however, was not afraid, and said he would be the first to leave. As he was taken out a woman hit him with a frying pan. cutting his head. The deputies uieu in vain to keep the crowd away while they took the man to the lock-up, but he was hit several times. Stones were also hurled, and Deputy Montgomery was struck. The officers then drew their revolvers and announced that if any more stones were thrown they would have to open lire. A Slav threw a rock, which crashed 'riiroiijia. a Window already half shattered. He was arrest ed, but the authorities seemed almost powerless, for by this time over 2,000 persons gathered. Several other col ored men were beaten on the way to the lock-up. About this time another alarm report was circulated through the crowd, it was in effect that the colored non-unionists living on Shanty hill, hearing of the as sault upon their brethren in town, were about to come down and rescue them. This was really the case. Over fifty colored men were ready to make an on slaught at a moment's notice, and the coal and iron police had much itiflicnity In restraining them. Marion Conrad, another non-unionist, owns a house above -Ann street on Fourth avenue. During the shooting a large crowd gathered in front of his house, and when he appeared becan to threaten him. Conrad is sworn in as a deputy sheriff, and he stood in his door with a revolver in either hand and said he would shoot the first man who entered the gate. Several deputies then arrived, thus keepinir the crowd back for au hous, when it dispersed. After all the colored men had been removed from the boarding house The Excitement Subsided as rapidly as it began, and by nightfall no unusual crowds were noticeable on the streets. Peter McFadden, who first engaged the colored men in a light, was shot through the left arm and cut on the head. James Jones, his friend, who came to his assistance in the attack, had an escape from death which was marac ulous. He had clinched with one of the colored men and struck him. As he did so tlie negro shoved his revolver lv his assailant's face and fired, the bullet striking Jones on the forehead abovo the eyes, and glanced off, cutting a bloody furrow over the left eye. Jones and McFadden were ar rested tonight by detectives. Mrs. Jones attempted to shield her husband and attacked the officers, but was held. Of-tlie eleven colored men locked up, seven have cuts on their heads where they were struck with missiles or clubs, J. Lewis and B. Ford being so badly beaten that a physician was summoned to dress their wounds. Tonight guards are on duty at the lock-up and non union boarding houses to prevent at tack. Smashed a Ceoord.

HEIR TO A MILLION, But lis Buffeting From a Mild Form of Lunacy. .Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 13.— Carl Wilhelm Amondorf, heir to the estate of his father, worth 1,000,000. in Ger many, lias been located in this city. He ls a porter in the saloon of Henry Wool stein, 1420 East Eighteenth street, and is Known as "Pencil Charley." Before he became a saloon porter he peddled pencils about the street, and thus gained his nickname. His family lives In Berlin and his father was very" wealthy. The son was wild and ran away .from home twelve years ago. Shortly alter his father died, and since thenmo trace ot the son could bo found, although dil gent efforts were made, until a descrip tion of the missing man was received here and it was found to fit "Pencil Charley," the saloon porter. Ills mother was notified and she promptly sent money with which to pay her son's pas sage home. Amondorf seems to be suf fering from a mild form of lunacy and hardly realizes his position. Henry Steu beach has been appointed his guar dian and will attend to his business un til he can arrange to sent him back to Germany. KANSAS SALOONS OPEN The State Appears to Be "Wet" in All the Principal Cities. Gov.-Elect Lewelling Will Let Local Option Settle tho Question. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 13.— Two sur prising results of the election in Kan sas which up to this time escaped gen eral notice are beginning to attract uni versal attention. One is the carrying of the proposition to hold a constitutional convention, and the other is the cessa tion of the enforcement of the prohi bition laws. In their eagerness to elect their state and electoral tickets the Republicans generally paid no attention to the matter of the const! tutioual convention, and it carried by default of their party. The majority in favor of it is much larger than the Third party majority. Tlie object of a constitutional convention is the revis ion ot the slate constitution so as lo eliminate objectionable and obsolete features and to add new and needed provisions to the old. instrument. The convention will be taken advantage of by the anti-prohibition men of all par ties to attempt the elimination from the constitution of the prohibition amend ment, and the hottest kind of a fight on that question is anticipated. Lorenzo Lewelling. the new Third party governor-elect, was . originally a Democrat before he joined the farmers' movement, and as such has always been opposed to prohibition. He has claimed, and still claims, that prohibition, as practiced in Kansas, has been a farce, that it iias not prohibited, and that tho laws for its enforcement have placed in the hands of the party in power an influence which has been basely utilized against the opposition, and of discriminating against localities. Fortius reason the new governor an nounced tb_t the enforcement of the laws must hereafter be left with the local officers, and that the state will not use the power in its hands to enforco the law in localities. In other words, he says such localities as de sire to enforce prohibition can do so under the general law, and that those who do not desire its enforce ment will not be made to enforce it by the state; that in effect the local option rule be enforced, and already the liquor industry throughout the state has taken a boom, In Fort Scott, Kan., where the law has been rigorously enforced, numerous saloons have commenced business, In Wichita the old "joints" have been moved from dark alleys and rear up stairs rooms to the main streets and down stairs. Saloons have opened in many other towns, and Kansas today is practically a wet state. rnnta ABOLISH THE MINISTRY Now York Herald Takes an Ad vanced Stand on Foreign Plenipotentiaries. It Advises That the Government Be Taxed $400,000 Per Annum. New York, Nov. 13.— The Herald will tomorrow advocate the abolition of our foreign ministry. In the course of its article, the paper says: "Some day a great political party will take up this question seriously, and make itself famous by wiping our use less and cumbersome diplomatic service from the face of the earth. "It was the prophetic voice of James Gillespie Blame, which uttered this pre diction some years ago, to the then Con gressman McAdoo, of New Jersey. "Nearly $400,000 is spent in the empty trappings of useless office. More than a third of a million dollars each year is expended by the United States that its black-cloth men may dangle at the tail of a diplomatic kite. '•The question of abolishing the diplo matic service ana substituting a per fected consular service in its place has long been favorably considered in Dem ocracy-loving minds. But it was not alone Democratic minds which favored the step. Luminous minds in the Re publican ranks echoed the wish to see the great official, Dou Quixote, un horsed. "Will the Democratic party see its op portunity and win lasting fame?" -m . Dying of Diabetes. Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 13.— Hon. A; S.

RED BANNERS WAVED. The Anniversary of Bloody Sunday Brings a Crowd to Trafalgar Square. Worklngmen Assemble Amid the Blare of Bands and Waving of Flags. The Government Asked to Push All Needed Public Improvements, With a View to Relieving Destitution Ampng the Laboring Classes. London, Nov; 13.— Upon Trafalgar square today was held the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the scene of a great popular demonstration in celebration of the restoration by the Liberal govern ment of the right to hold public meet ings in the square, and to give notice to the demands of the unemployed poor upon the government and local N bodies to start all needed public improvements so as to assist in relieving existing des titution. Bright sunshine ushered in the morning, which brought crowds of people to the spot, which will doubtless ever be associated with the memorable conflict of that Sunday in 18S7 when Sir Charles Warren successfully upheld his order prohibiting the use of the square, against the masses, which made a concerted effort to break through the lines of police and soldiery. The weather in the afternoon was less favorable. The sky . became clouded, and threatened rain. Nothing daunted, the legions of unemployed, of socialists and other sympathizers marched in bodies to the square, most of them com ing from the east and southeast. A band was stationed there which greeted the arriving processions, the first three of which were social democratic bodies. Tlicy Carried Red Uaniier*, and were led by a number of girls wav ing red flags. They took up a position at the base of the Nelson column, about three sides of which platforms were constructed. The balustraded front of the national gallery provided three other platforms. All of the pro cessions were amply provided with banners and bands, the "Mar seillaise" and other revolutionary airs being played. The banners bore inscriptions such as "Workers of the world.unite and sow the seed, but do not let the tyrants reap." Another, which was greeted everywhere with cheers, was inscribed: "Taken by War ren's bullies, Bloody Sunday. Retaken same day." The banners were placed outspread about Nelson's monument, forming a bright background to the dark masses surrounding the speakers. The windows and roots of the buildings overlooking the square were crowded with spectators. There was a noticeable absence of police within the square, but hundreds on foot and numbers of mounted men were stationed back of the national gallery and at other con venient spots out of sight. Detachments of three or four were placed every three or four yards at the approaches to the square, while an ambulance corps with stretchers and other paraphernalia was on hand Ready for Service. Scotland Yard, too, was ready for an emergency. The square was filled with a vast concourse of people by half past three. It was an eminently orderly crowd, however. Ordinary traffic was little impeded. A majority of the pro cessionists were well-dressed working men. They appeared almost lost in the great crowd of spectators, drawn by curiosity. There were forty speakers, including John Burns, C. A. Conybeare, M. P., James Keif Hardie, M. P., 11. M. Ilyndman, Ben Tillet, Bernard Shaw and William Saunders, M. P. The speeches were limited to six minutes each. Owing to the noise only those near the speaker could hear him. The majority could only look on and watch the gesticulations. Bums, who spoke from the monument, was loudly cheered. He moved the resolution anent the unemployed. His speech was mod erate. He contrasted the square as it appeared on Bloody Sunday with the peaceful assembly of today. He said that 30 per cent of the engineers and workmen in the steel, iron, tin plate and ship building industries were out of work, but he attributed this unfortu nate condition to Previous Overproduction- With an eight-hour day's work, he de clared this would be remedied, and he advocated the establishment of labor bureaus. He expressed regret that the overworked employes, instead of the railroad directors, had been Killed in the collision at Thirst. Conybeare, who spoke from the balustrade of the national gallery, urged his hearers to compel the government to give the people full control of the police. He deprecated talk about the use of dy namite to secure to the people the res toration of their rights. Such absurd utterances as were heard at Tower Hill "were a disgrace, and came chiefly from the lips of torelgn paupers. Others spoke. The resolutions were put from all of the platforms at 4:15 p. m., and were declared carried, though the hub bub prevented the words ot the resolu tions being heard from the platform. The square then quickly cleared, and processionists took up the march to their respective districts with bands plavlng aud banners waiving. At the head of one procession was a gray bearded man ou horseback representing the red spirit. GO THROUGH HAMBURG. / The German Exhibits for the World's Fair. Berlin, Nov. 13.— sending of Germany's exhibits to the world's fair this year by way of Hamburg is said to have caused no little uneasiness among some persons at Chicago. It is feared, letters received here say, that in this manner cholera germs may reach the Garden City. In view of the gravity of the question, the Associated Press cor respondent thought it wise to ascertain the extent to which these fears are justified. Privy Councilor Werm'uth, imperial German commissioner to the world's fair, told the Associated Press, correspondent that it was true that most of the German exhibits were sent by way of Hamburg. Ho said that it was the most direct and convenient route and that there was no danger whatever. Prof. Koch first refused to talk, as he is opposed on prinoiples to newspaper Interviews. He referred the . cone-' spondent to the publications of the im perial health office, of which he is a member. But finally, however, in view ot the interests involved, he consented to be interviewed. l . "lhat la out of the question," said he, "that goods or merchandise passing through Hamburg should carry cholera germs. It has never been known that new goods carried such germs. Cholera may be spread by human beings, or by the soiled clothing. or linen of cholera patients, but never by goods packed in wooden cases, by iron or stone. "We knew these facts before, and the recent Hamburg epidemic has simply, confirmed our opinion that only through: contact with infected persons or their, clothes could cholera be spread. ' "If Chicago will take the proper steps to keep people irom infected districts away from the fair, she need not fear invasion of that dread spectre, cholera, though. the German exhibits were car ried through Hamburg." Mr. Johnson, the United States con sul at Hamburg, was in Berlin recently, having come here to take his family back to Hamburg— a sign that the dan ger has passed— for the present, at least. Consul Johnson told the Asso ciated Press correspondent that not a single package was allowed to leave Hamburg for America without thorough disinfection. CHILI NOT IN DANGER. Peru and Argentine. Not Prepar ing for an Attack. * Valparaiso, Nov. 13.— The story sent out from Panama to the effect that; Argentine and Peru are preparing for a concerted attack on Chili is without' the slightest foundation. Senior Uri-j. buru, vice president of Argentine, in an interview at Buenos Ayres, says that these stories of an alliance between Argentine and Peru are absurd and im possible. "During my ten years of service at Santiago as Argentine minis ter to Chili," said Senor Uriburu, "the Chilians always showed the kindest feelings toward me. Certain papers here ate trying to stir up strife, but their efforts will be unavailing, as Ar gentine has no wish to enter into a light." Waldo Silva, chief of the Junta de Gobirno, of the late revolution, died last night at Santiago. Tne government has decreed that he shall be giveu a public funeral with all honors. The papers In Montevideo are insist ing on the resignation of the president lor the salvation of the country. At a meeting held yesterday a number erf politicians, bankers and merchants ob jected to the resolutions insisting on the resignation. The Brazilian government has unan imously voted a large credit to the gov ernment for the purchase of war ma terial. ;•:•<:; THEIR TALK TAME. Parisian (Anarchists Not Inflam matory in Their Remarks. Paris, Nov. 13.— The much-trumpeted meeting of anarchists in this city today was a very paltry affair. Mauy of the leaders who were expected to glory in the last explosion and incite their fol lowers to imitate llavachol were afraid to show themselves, and, consequently, the meeting sadly lacked speakers. About forty men and three or four women gathered in the wineshop cel lar in Rue LaGaite, where the demon stration was advertised to take place.' Just before the first speaker rose some twenty policemen in citizen's clothes walked in, and in a few minutes an equal number of detectives appeared. . This force was so considerable that the anarchists did not venture to make any incendiary remarks. After two hours of very tame oratory the meeting was adjourned indefinitely. CHOLERA BACILLI. They Do Not Always Result' in Cholera. Munich, Nov. 13.— Profs. Pettenkofer and Emericb, who have been conduct ing a series of experiments with cholera bacilli, say that as far as they have been able to learn local and not Individ ual conditions further the epidemic. Both men have swallowed large num bers of cholera bacilli, and yet, but for slight diarrhoea, neither of them suf fered any inconvenience. The result of the experiments was a surprise to Prof. Pettenkofer, whose theory formerly was that the taking of any large num ber of comma bacilli into the system would be followed by cholera. The Manchester Martyrs. London, Nov, 13.— Preparations are being made in London to celebrate the hanging of the so-culled Manchester martyrs. The celebration will take place on Nov. 27. The Tories are mak ing much of the matter, but it is be lieved the government will take no no tice of it. - *r . ■*"'■..: :-"j Germans Are Coming.

London, Nov. 13.— The steam tug Se cret, which left Lytham, a village in Lancaster counjy, ou the Irish sea, Oct 25 on a short voyage, carrying six pas sengers and a crew of six, is believed to have foundered during one of the recent gales, as the body of one passenger has been found off Lundy isle, in the en trance of the Bristol channel. Kind of a Tariff. Paris, Nov. 13.— With the view of ; checking the growing importation of foreign goods into French colonies and protectorates, the colonial administra tion has requested French railway and steamship companies to establish a sys tem of differential for the rates in favor of French merchandise. — AN ELECTRIC DEATH. ;•'. Charles Bartold's Carelessness Loses Him His Life. . Stockton, Cal., Nov. 13.— Charles Bartold, employed at the electric works, was instantly killed last night by a ; shock received while working at an arc light. On his way home with his wife and two children he noticed a. light needed attention. He went to the pole, and, without the usual precaution to stand on a non-conductor, he attached the crank while standing on the earth,' and instantly fell doubled up and al most dead. The passersby saw him fall, and went to his assistance. -Life was almost extinct, and he died after taking a few breaths. When the -body was examined no mark was found oh.it, nor was there any sign of. burning. Some of the electricians at the works thought Bartold was not killed by elec tricity because no burns were seen. v Movements of Steamships. - ; Liverpool— Arrived: Boatpnianatid Kan sas, Boston. , . .-■.

He Thinks the Republicans Were Overwhelmingly in Favor of Blame. Mr. Cleveland Continues to Deny Himself to the Gen eral Public. Many Democratic Organiza tions Preparing for the In augural in March. New York, Nov. 13.- Senator R. F. Pettigrew, of South Dakota, arrived in New York today to meet some capital ists who are associated with him in building a railroad from Sioux Falls to , Puget sound. The senator expressed himself with feeling emphasis on the presidential election and the cause of President Harrison's defeat. He does not think it was a defeat altogether of the Republican party. :; "We people, especially In the North west," he said, "wanted Blame nomi nated, lf he had been, he would surely have carried the election. But the officeholders insisted on Harrison, and by the most strenuous use of power ever known in political history he was renominated. Some, of our people wanted Cleveland aud got him, and the leaders of the Democracy were forced to support him. The officeholders could not force their allies to support their candidate. When a man has 100,000 offices to dispense he is bound to com mand 000,000 votes, aud you can't ex pect them to support him very earnestly, to say the least. •j "President Harrison lost several thousand votes in Illinois, if not the State, on account of his attitude toward Senator Farwell." 'A' "How do you account for President Harrison's defeat?" «'i "I think it was largely caused by his personal unpopularity and littleness in using the power of officeholders to force his renomination when Blame was tho overwhelming choice of the country. I am a strong Republican and as firm a : believer in the principles as any man .can be, but 1 cannot help thinking the Minneapolis convention made a grave mistake. No, Ido not think the elec tion of Cleveland means a refutation of protection, nor, as the Democrats claim, that the Republican party is dead. They will And that the Republican .party will be very, much alive for many years to come, and that tlie Republicans. will survive. 1 think a good many Democrats are In favor of protection In some form. I do not be lieve they will dare pas.-" any measure looking to free trade. . ' "Any party that undertakes to abol ish protection will soon go out of power. Protection has resulted in prosperity to the farmers in the West, and especially in the two Dakotas. They are great wool-raising states, the production amounting to over 2,000,000 pounds yearly. A bill Is pending iv the senate providing for free. wool, If It should be passed, it would cripple,' if not ruin, wool growers. . Should an attempt be ■ made, which is not probable, to pass it at the coming session of congress, 1 • shall offer an amendment to put all woolen good on the free list. There are also bills (pasted by the house) to put iron, bind ing twine, tin plate and lead ore on the tree list, but I do not think they will be passed at the next session. 1 shall not .vote for them, lf the Democratic party represented anything but what is bad, If it did not lack moral sentiment, it might remain in power, but any party j Without character or principle, and sup ported by the solid South, New lork and Chicago, Is not likely to last long. I think that Tammany Hall's influence will be felt all over the White house, and aid In retiring the Democrats from .power four years hence." • Senator Pettigrew said the People's party would no doubt have made a bet ter showing in the West if its followers Douth had not sold out and become ' Seruoeratized early in the campaign. CLEVELAND SAYING NOTHING. .The President-Elect Keeps in the Dark. -• New York, Nov. 13.— The most in conspicuous citizen just now is the gentleman who only six days ago was summoned to the highest place of honor In the nation. With the election which resulted so triumphantly in his favor Mr. Cleveland has vanished from the public view. With the exception of a few words addressed to the throng in front ot his house In the small hours of Wednesday morning, no utterance of "public importance-has fallen from the president-elect. He has remained in the privacy of his home, closeted with his secretary and absorbed in the gigan tic tast of attending to the mass of cor respondence which reaches him dally. To the representatives of the press Mr. 'Cleveland has denied himself absolute ly, and all such inquirers have been njet at the door with the stereotyped state ment: "Mr. Cleveland has nothing to say." I To a few intimate personal and polit ical friends only has he been visible. Among them are Mr. Whitney, Senator i Gorman, Congressman Little and Rich ard Watsou Gilder. It was likewise ru mored that Mr. Cleveland was engaged in the preparation of a statement which he would make public, but today this was denied by Secretary Easton, who said: / '. "I hardly think Mr. Cleveland will be heard from until March.'' Saturday .noon Mr. Cleveland started abroad for the first time, and drove through Cen tral park, returning in time for dinner, after which he retired to his study. THE CLUBS COMING.

A Confession Regarding the Simp son "Assassination." Topeka, Kan., Nov. 13.— The biggest sensation connected with the late Kan sas campaign was made public todny. It is the public confession of L. S. Har vey assistant secretary of the People's party campaign committee. Harvey had been charged with giving out se crets of the committee, and this morn ing, to defend himself, he exposed the plot which was arranged in Topeka to have an attempt made to assassinate Jerry Simpson. Harvey says the par ties to the scheme were W. C. Jones, chairman of the Democratic state com mittee; Briedenthal, chairman of the People's party, and Jerry Simpson. The object was to create sympathy for Simpson and insure his election. "The plan," says Secretary Harvey," was to have Simpson return to his dis trict, and be waylaid and beaten and bruised in the pretended effort to assas sinate him, the letters to be found re garding the plot to murder him as has been published, and the whole to offset Southern outrages and create sympathy for Simpson. During the discussion of this scheme Jerry objected to being beaten or bruised up. but he was talked out of the opposition and agreed to undergo the punishment, but insisted that the fellow who did the pounding must not carry it too far." Mr. Harvey further says that, owing to the blunder of Simpson's district chairman, the letters offering 12,000 re ward to the man who would murder Simpson were found and the sham at tempt at assassination was prevented. When Gen. Weaver was here Chairman Briedenthal urged Harvey to hire some one to walk beside Weaver's carriage and pelt him with eggs so that the out rages in the South might be repeated in Kansas, the object being to place the blame on Republicans. The exposure by Harvey has created a great deal of excitement" here, and many threats are made against him. He went to his home, fifteen miles from Topeka, today, and a telegram was sent him advising him not to come to Topeka, ONE CABINET .RUMOR Given a Smash hy Senator Mc- Pherson, Washington, Nov. 13.— Senator Mc- Pherson, of New Jersey, whose name has been constantly mentioned in con nection with the secretaryship of the treasury, left for home this evening. The senator was asked if it was true, as stated, that he was to be offered the position. "I think," replied the senator, "it would be well to consult Mr. Cleveland before deciding who will be honored with a place in his private council. 1 am sure there is no such understanding in New Jersey or elsewhere within the knowledge of Mr. Cleveland or myself. It Is a matter of the utmost delicacy lor a man's friends however enthusiastic, to indulge in, and I am sure mine have not. Moreover.there is not even a remote probability of such a happening." ;"*' Hogg Is Elected.

Apparently They Have Also Se cured the Secretary of State. Columbus,"" 0., Nov. 13. — Both the Democratic and Republican headquar ters were closed today, and those who have been searching for official informa tion as to whether Ohio has politically reversed herself went to their homes for a day's rest When the Republican quarters closed last night they had received official information from all the counties, Hamilton county being the last, which showed a plurality in the state for Taylor. (Rep.) of 1054, and Danford. the head of the electoral ticket, 872. Danford run* several hun dred ahead of the other Republican electors, and Seward, the head of the Democratic, electoral ticket, runs four or five hundred ahead of his colleagues on the ticket. The general opinion is that Seward will be elected by defeating the elector who receives the smallest* number of votes on the Republican ticket. The figures received np to date un doubtedly show that the Republicans will save their state ticket and elect 22 out of 23 electors and 10 of the 21 con gressmen. This was the situation as given out at Republican head quarters Saturday night, when they closed. Chairman Dick, of the Repub lican committee, will return to the city tomorrow, when the work will be re sumed. The official returns ate still coming In at the office of the secretary of sTJite, but they do not fluctuate suffi ciently to Indicate that the results will be materially different from those which have been given out by the Republican committee. The plurality of Taylor. Rep., will not be far from the 1,000 notch. The Democratic committee is doing nothing, but claims the official count will show who is elected or defeated. Eighteen counties made official returns to the secretary of state today, but three of the counties were returned for corrections. This makes a total of 36 counties which have sent in their re turns. A comparison of the abstracts with the official returns sent to Chair man Dick show but slight changes in eleven of the eighteen counties. The net gain for Taylor (Dent.) was forty five, and as nearly half the counties have been received officially it can be seen that the flucujitions are not suffi cient to cut a very great figure In the result. Deducting the forty-five from Taylor's estimated plurality of 1,054, it still leaves him a plurality of 1,000. ln the thirty-six counties Danford's total vote is 113,624, and the other Republican electors received 112,795, showing a gain for Danford of 829. Seward. Dem., re ceived a total vote of 119,096, and the other Democratic electors received 119, --159. showing a gain of 837 for Seward. This indicates that eight more Demo crats blundered in voting than Repub licans. : .Carpenter, the head of of the electoral ticket ot the People's party, received 4,002 votes: in.- the. thirty-si* counties, and Redkoy, Pro., elector at the head of the ticket, . received 8,20 Q. These figures indicate that the People's party has not polled more than half as many votes in the state as last year, and the Prohibitionists have tho least number Mi mistakes iv voting. SMITH'S GREAT RUN. The. Ex-Mayor of St. Paul Leads His Ticket Every where, And Will Come Very Near a Seat in the Electoral College. Twenty-Nine Counties In crease the Pluralities of Buck and Canty. The House Securely In- the Clasp of the Repub licans. The plurality for Harrison in this state, when all the counties are heard from, will be few, if any, more than ten thousand. . In the western and northern counties Grover Cleveland ran like a race horse, and many men who voted for Donnelly and Nelson soem to have placed their marks opposite the Cleve land electors. Hon. Robert A. Smith, the first on the list of Cleveland electors, has received at le.i3t 5,000 more votes than any of his colleagues, and will be less than 5,000 behind (apt. 11. W. Don aldson, the lowest on the Republican ticket. 'I lie Red river valley counties j are doing nicely by the fusion electors, and they will run a Itttie ahead of the average of the five straight Cleveland electors. The fact that these electors were mixed through a long list accounts for their failure to receive the practically solid vote of the two parties, and a plurality of at least '25,000. On the judicial ticket J mitres Buck and Canty continue to gain every where, and in the twenty-nine counties heard from so far they are ahead of their opponents nearly 11.000, and the remaining fifty one counties will give a much greater increase, and probably bring the majorities to nearly 30,000. Judges Dickinson and Vanderburgh are nowhere receiving the full Repub lican vote, let alone the cold water con tingent's ballots. The returns from twenty-n'pte counties follow: Dlcken-Vander- Buck.

Mf.mpiiis, Nov. 13.— L. H. Loucks, of Huron, S. 1)., president of the National Farmers' Alliance, arrived today to at tend the annual meeting of the order In this city Tuesday. In an interview Mr. Loucks said that the coming meet ing of the National Alliance would have a small attendance pared with former gatherings. "This is due to the fact that the last annua-; meeting at Indianapolis reduced the repreaestation to two from each stato and territory, except in those states having a membership of nine than l 20,000. "In the event the Populists hold the balance of power in the United States senate, how will they vote on tariff measures?" was asked. "They will support a measure looking to the reduction of the tariff. • The third party is nearer free trado than the Dem ocratic parly. 1 think the Republican party is done for. Three parties, of course, call not exist for any length of time. The Democratic and Republican' parties are very much alike, only a dif ference on the tariff. 1 think the new alignment of parties which has been developing for some time past will soon become better defined. Ido not think the third party would have made a better showing in this campaign' with (.reshani on the ticket. We do not advocate candidates; we advocate prin ciples. • In future there will be but two great parties in this country, the Peo ple's party nud the Democrats. The' Republican parly will not live to see' another presidential election." He was asked what effect the fusion in the Western slates had in enabling , the People's party to carry the States. lie thought there was only one state where it might properly be | called fusion, and that was Wyo- \ ming, In the other states, the Democrats, he claimed, simply trailed I in the rear of the third partyites. lie asserted that iv South Dakota the Dem ocratic approval of the Populist ticket' had rather weakened it. There was a warm feeling toward Harrison in that state on account of his action when the territory sou-flit admission as a state. Many Republican Populists turned at the last hour and voted for Harrison, because they thought the Democrats were too closely allied with the new party. CLEVELAND'S SABBATH. He Spends It With His Wife and Little it. ii.. New York, Nov. 13.— Sunday came as a welcome relief to President-elect Cleveland. He was one of the hardest* worked men lv New York last week. Not only did he have to read a million letters, more or less, but he was com. pelled to enuurotthe mental torment of not being able to see all manner of strangers who called on him to ex change ideas with him as to how it all happened. Mr. Cleveland's friends decided to give him a day off. They were kind enough to think that he bad earned It» and that it might be a change for him) to talk with Mis. Cleveland and play, with BabJ Ruth after four days of cab* met making. And so those who did' Visit him staid only a short time, and as if they had got the "tip" that ho was tired in mind and body, they re* frained from talking "shop," and turned the conversation into new channels, the horse show and the latest theatricals. An intimate friend -of Mr. Cleveland said: "I have refrained from calling on ii i in today, and 1 hope others have. too. He has had enough visiting since elec tion to last him over Sunday." Many persona hung around Mr. Cleveland's house, 12 West Fifty-first street, to get a look at him. They stood about the steps as if expecting every moment to see the country's next chief executive posing in the doorway, it was hoped that .Mr. Cleveland took their presence as complimentary, even if it was not ornamental. Three men planted themselves before the house in the afternoon and began to devour it with their eyes. Other people passing through the street on their way from church thought something was hap pening, and they, too, stopped. This interest in the premises kept up all (lay. The sti earns of telegrams and letters to Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland still come in. No letters, of course, arrived today, but there were many dispatches. A wairou loud of letters is expected tomorrow. The express companies made some de liveries of packages on Saturday, which included several dollars for Miss Ruth Cleveland. Many Democrats seem to think that the ex president would be happier if he had their picture iii his album, and they arc sending them in large numbers. Very few of these voters are noteworthy from an artistic standpoint. Others, "as a guarantee of good faith," send long letters, largely descriptive of themselves, and they don't seem to be apropos of anything in particular. The receipt of all these literary and artistic contributions helped to fatigue Mr. Cleveland and make him feci the need of rest. Things arc quiet at Democratic na tional headquarters. The most con spicuous objects there tonight were the headquarters "mascot" and a big lira. The mascot is a cat, marked almost ex actly like a tiger, and greatly resem bling in miniature the. Tammany hail quadruped. A peculiar thing about the animal is that it strayed into tbe head quarters on election night. Did the Election Do It. Sax Francisco, Cal., Nov. 18.
