numbers of liemnernts either voted for Owen or Nelson. The Ih-mocra'ic pnrty was <rjilit in two by the Populists O u the county tick et, and this permitted the Republicans to win a victory that would not have been theirs had the Drsnoerati stood by their ticket. The vote cast is very small. being considerably below the registra tion, which in turn was over -2,000 short ot that of last spring. The Democrats had almost no organ ization, and a very meager fund for necessary and legitimate expenres. The League clubs served the Republican party well in effecting an organization. Tue Populists were well organized, and were thus able to make heavy inroads into the Democratic party. The fault of tin* Democrat? was not in failure to have a fend ticket, but lack of organization and ability to hold the parly in line.and to gel out the lull vote. The Republican* expended money freely within their own lines, and in bolstering up the Populists, Colcivtt Voie Badly hplit. A conservative colored man was asked yesterday bow the colored v;;e was going, lie replied: "It is badly split.

It was unusually quiet about the poll tog places yesterday. Oa St. Anthony bill it was as calm as a Saobath, m» the Koudostreet polic said. Up to tip. m. the police had made only two arrests for disorderly conduct at or near the polls. One occurred in the Sixth ward and the Mber in the Fifth ward. In the Third precinct off the Sixth ward Allen McCali, a railroad braketuan, was arrested about sp. m. by Officer Griffin, of the Ducas Htrect station, for making too much noise and for interfering with the judges of election at the polling place. At least, that is tde charge preferred by the officer. At the Ducas street Matin Air. Met'all gave *, jr> bail arid departed. 1 lie other ca^e was that of John Ki: cere, who did consiueiable shouting around the vuting place of the Tenth mecinct of the Filth ward. Kuc*re was lodged in the central station. Aside from these two disturbances, no trouble was reported. NIGHT BIKUKT SCtNK. Hepublicars AiaJe iheir Throats fcoi-e. With bated breath tho crowds gathered on Fourth street at an early hour last night, until. Iron, the corner of Cedar down to the corner of Hubert, there was one black, moving:, surging mass of humanity. These were in the vicinity of the uewspaoer offices. Aii other matters were forgotten; interest alone centered upon the returns re flected upon canvas with steropticons. In the editorial rooms of the GLOBE busy brains and busier haucis labored ail through the night, drawing order out of the confusing chaos of figures. Rap icily did the flood of figures pour in from the precincts of the various wards, but so perfect was the system adopted that there was but little chance for er ror, it seemed as though the end would never come, but come it did in due course of time. As rapidly as deft rineers could do the work the bulletins weie prepared, taken to the business office below, and a moment later the titrures were Hashed upon the tightly drawn canvas. 'I lie Crowds Were Patient, . ■ evidently appreciating that all things come to them that wait. When bulletin after bulletin appeared, all telling the tale that the Republicans were having nearly everything their own way. those of that stripe went wild with enthus iasm. With that sturdy spiiit of manli ness characteristic of all true Demo crats, be it said to their credit, they stood the test like men. Of course it was not the most inspiring tiling in the world to see defeat written in the tell tale characters on Ihe canvas. Demo crats stood shoulder to shoulder with Republicans and good-naturedly smiled. 11 there are not a srreat many Repub lican sore throats this morning from frequent yells, it is certainly strange. It is evidently not a good year for Prohibitionists. To be sure, occasional ly there were a few figures—very little ones, by the way-showing that the cold water party had ventured out in the mad storm of ballots upon the sea of chance, only to become swallowed up by the resistless waves. Their little shallop stood uo chance against such heavy odds. The People's Party Vote was a surprise. Many had under estimated its slrer.gth. The labor ele ment of St. Paul-ami it is a very large one—went almost solidly for Owen. Many consider that this vote, was large ly at the expense of the Democracy HOW ELKTUKNtf WKRG GOT. Sketch of the Inside of Newspa per Work. At the rooms of the City Press asso ciation on the ground floor of the Ger uiania Life building, there was an im niense circular table, a verifiable King Arthur round table. Here four knights of the quili, sworn to the interests ot the leading dailies, held high carnival during the midnight hours. A box of cigarettes look the place of the wassail bowl, and the board was garnished with cedar pencils and election blanks. But for their chivalrous devo tion to their mathematical reast, how ever, the public would not know this morning whether (o lament or rejoice, to promise the wife of their bosom that essential hat, that necessary gown, or to state emphatically that the family expenses have been increasing of late at an alarroiug rate, and that they didn't have any money to spend on fool ishness. Innumerable boys had been fur nished with printed blanks in which the judges of election were requested to note the detailed vote of their precinct. Upon receiving these delightful billets doux for the coy lovers of political beauty, the freekel-faced Cupids tried each to outspeed the other arriving first at the association headquarters. On foot, on horseback, per bicycle, per street car. per everything but lying machine, they came from every quarter.

Through these- confidential co adjutors the electorate missives were tr.tustuilted to the lotty castles of the editorial barons. Tinmen they were blazoned forth by the heralds of ink and puncif, the trumpets of the daily pi»..j S . The economy of time and effort resulting from this systematic management by Ihe city press resulted i» much more satisfactory returns than by the primitive, haphazard methods. Every facility was afforded the messengers for accelerated movements. In several buildings special elevators were re tained tor tutir accommodation. . The boys iVit their importance and exhaust ed a rising energy which had been ac cumulating for months. "Well, Peu-v," remarked one to his companion, "Dey's give her up—de UeSMhac Jist h«d t r—see'.'

Don't eny of you kids go blowiu' about dis 'iekshun till yer hearz from Skinny Mike—dats wot!" and he yelled "Down !" with such a triumphant em phasis that the elevator man shot up three stories before he recovered his crip. If the boys were immersed in their labor, their chief* at the round table were lost to the world and by the world forgot. While the newspaper offices, the hotels, the candidate rooms, the committee headquarters were besieged by interested or merely curious in quirers, who could learn but little, the fountain source oi electoral advices was undisturbed. This will be the more aggravating to Ike anxious officeholder, the solicitous candidate, when he leaCM this tilllliat that the returns were tirst made known on the ground Moor of a building in the very mUlst of the "dis turbed district."

SI'AUXCH <JL>D DEMOCRAT. He'll Vote the Ticket If Nobody K'.se Does. £o eager were the stieet crowds to get ttie latest news from the bulletins that they stood m the streets up to 1 this morning. Even adverliseineuis.request ing them to take some railroad's "ves tiLmled and only electric-lighted trains'' Hashed on their vision when they hoped to see election figures, did not disrearten them. Occasionally a rough ly executed picture would be thrown on the sheet oy way of variety. One or. these represented Pierce Butler, attired like a sailor, standing upright in a storrn-tcssed boat. This seemed to cheer the heaits of his many admirers. At 1 o'clock the great morning dailies went out of the magic lantern business, :wid the gates of snow begun falling. The streets were soon covered with tne pure while covering, concealing the i>lack pavements under a blanket of white. Then the multitude dispersed and went their ways. .Til through tiie evening the telephone in the (Ji.obk editorial room kept up an almost continuous jingie, and inquiries poured in thick and last. People wanted to know how this candidate or that stood. Nor was this all. Ail through the night people whose anxiety or curi osity would not permit them to sleep iiied singly or in throngs through the GLOBE editorial rooms Lent on intoim i tion. The humblest iep> iter was looked upon as a veritable cyclopuKlia of sta tistical and political lore. One rather amusing incident occurred early in the evening. A sturdy old Dem ocrat stated at the figures showing Nel son's surprising gains. As the figures kept piling uu (the wrong way for him) lie kept getting madder. The cheers of the N«.ison sup&otterodid not serve to pacify him, eil'.ier, and he veiled out in defiance: "1 shall continue so long as 1 live to vole the Democratic ticket. I'll vote it anyway, even if 1 am the last man on earth to do it. I'll vole it, even though I iiave to vote it alone." Did You Lose ? Then pay your bet at The. Boston. HU MAN ii A LIiOON. An Indian With the Power of Dis- tending Himseli'. San Francisco Chronicle. ban Jacinto has a first-class sensation in the person of a big Indian named Eduardo Guata, who lives across the river in the famous village of Saboba. E'luardo's peculiarity is that he has tiie power of distending himself at will to most enormous dimensions. When Ed uardo has been persuaded to give an exhibition of his expansive properties lie arranses for it wiih ail due solem nity and dimity. He loosens his over alls, unbuckles his suspenders, shakes out a reef or two in his shirt, takes a last look at the world, and si«its in to pumo hin»elf full of aUnosoher*. It is a sight to see him swell <:p. Bduardo is mi sprinter to begin witii, but when he has successfully engulfed a tubful or two of air he woulci put Graver Cleveland to the blush. He keeps on bravsly until the spectators get nervous with the momentary ex pectatiou of an explosion. Just as the suspense becomes unbearable Eduardo ceases and displays his person proudly to the assembled throng. We have oniy one tape line, so haven't tried to meas ure him when inflated, but his circum ference is something appalling. When Eduardo wishes to reduce himself he merely makes some mysterious folding motions of his arms and shoulders, when presto', change! Richard is himself again. Water and Germs. It is pretty well established now that water, so far from generating malaria, may really prevent its polluting the at mosphere. The germ may grow in soil even slightly moist, but a thin layer of water evenly distributed over such soil may prevent the escaDe of the germ into the atmosphere, lv the same way a thick growth of grass with matted roots may be impervious to (be germ, and keep it beneath the surface, where it can do no harm.

New York Advertiser. •Inn liri'w and a stranger traded saddle horses at San Ralael, Oul., the oilier day, anil. according to the evi dence of reputable witnesses, the bar gain was consummated in.this way: "Utah. stranger?" "Hiah?" responded the stranger, dis mounting. "Likely looking horse you trot there." "They ain't raised no better." "Lookin' for a trade?' ".Swap anything 1 got but the old woman." Jim commenced examining the horse critically: After he had walked around the annual he gave the stranger a chance to lie a little by inquiring: "How old is he?" * ear-old." Jim grabbed the horse by the nose and pried his jaws apart with his thumbs. "liis teeth tell me he is six," said Jim, decisively. "Well, he's a January colt." "lie's a mite thin. Ain't hide-bound, is he?" And Jim prodded the horse in the ribs with his thumbs. "No, 1 have been chasiu' stock on him for two months, and staktn' him out on Brass." "Must ha' been ruunin' him pretty hard, judgiu' from the windgalls on him. He's irot a ringbone cumin', too," remarked Jim, as he rubbed trie ani mal's pastern. "Is that a sprint ou his off foreleg?" "£so, that's a rope burn." "is that sweeney or a collar burn?" and Jim examined the hoisn's shoulder critically. "Juat scratched fromrunnin' through the brush." "Must a been jumpin' him consider abie. He's showing a little curb. Hello, he's stifled or badly sprained." "No. sir; he's as sound as a dollar." "Good stock horse?" "ion can turn him on a sheepskin. What sort of a plug is that you've got'"' And the stranger examined* Jim's horse as critically as Jim had examined his, and found all tlie defects and diseases that a veteriuary had ever heard of. "Well, how'll you swap?" inquired J:m. The stranger dropped a fresh chew of fine-cut in his jaw and Jim got out his jackknife and went to work ou a Bhinjcle. Both sat down on a dry goods box. "I'll take boot," said the stranger, as he killed a rly at three yards with a stream of tobacco juice. "You won't take it from me," said Jim, as he cut a long shaving from the shingle. "Gimme $20 to boot and we'll trade." •Twenty dollßis ought to buy that pinto plUff of yourn, but sriinme $15 to boot and the horse is yours." The stranger downed a whole bunch of flies that had congregated ou the apple core, and Jim shed three shavings in suc cession. "I'll tell you what I'll do. I'il split the difference. You gimme $2.50 to bo-)t and take the hlly. "Never give boot in my life, and ain't, goin' to nit into the habit of it vow." said the stranger decisively. "Guess we can't swap then." Jim was gelling in his fine work, and cut fine shavings to correspond. "Gimme $5 and we swap," remarked the stranger after a long pause. "No, I'll be demmed if 1 do. What's cattle worth up your way?" Ji»# had evidently abandoned all idea a trade. "Four'n a half on fool for steers. Say, I'll trade you even up." Jim shut one eye and cut a long shav ing, exaMiiued the horse again and dashed his hand in front of each of the horse's eyei to be sure that he wasn't blind. "Is he well broke to the saddle?" "Never bucked a iick in his life. How's yourn?" "Gentle as a kitten." **l rll go you if you'll treat." "No; I'll shake you for the drinks." "It's a go," decided the stranger, throwing his finecut again«t the side of the box. They shifted saddles, took their drink, and each went around blowing about how he had swindled the oth.^r. That night the horse bucked Jim off on the way home, and the pinto filly k.cked in three of tiie stranger's ribs. ROYAL. FUN i.KAIj TRAIN. Its Progress Ihroujch Russia Will Be a Great Kvent.
