New York and r-Qinarn8on s pluralities are less loan fair presumption is that if these votes had been eliminated Cleveland would have received their eighty flve electoral votes, which, added to the 168 votes he did receive, would have Hi yen a total of 253 out of 401. Mr. Pearce confined his analysis to the state of New York alone, in which there can be no possible quess lion of the correctness of tne argument, and her thirty six votes wou.d have given Cleveland 204, thus insuring his election. "Here is presented the singular specta Cle of 2", 000 colored voters in the Em pire Btate of the north determining the result of a presidential election for 8,000, 000 of white voters in thirty eight states and not onlv so, but also determining, certainlv for four years, and possibly for an indefinite period, the course of the government upon the gravest question of public policy ever presented to the Intel ligence of the American people." It would seem pretty evident that- whatever may have been done with the negro vote in the south den. Harrison was really elected by the northern negro .nautili for IW9. Mansill'4 almanac of planetary meteor ology and new system of science for 18S9 has come from the press. In introducin: it the author says: Id presenting our fourteenth annual almanac of planetary meteorology to the public, we leave the base of the new the ory remaining just the same, with an abundance of data tn support our claims. The prospective outlook of the crop pro, during seasons of 19?9 is pointed out iu this almanac. The arrangements and general rules laid down in this calendar are substantially the same us those con tamed in the olanelary meteorological almanac for lS7ti, and the subsequent years. The meteoric data received dur ing 1888. occurring and coinciding with the position1 of the planets agreeable to the rules and laws set forth in the calen dar for IHbtt. will be found in this work. The numerous coinciding meteoric disturbances, occunh-g so harmnuiously with the rules estahlisned by the author for such result many years ano, still con linue to reassure him that the disturbing influence of ihe perihelion and aphelion passages of the plant ts Hnd the longi tudinal conjunctions of these bodies (and moon) arc the true, natural ba-e and cauie of our worst meteoric atfi'alions. The base of the system is that all planets, comets and satellites go through reversed change of motion, volume, distance and density at their peribelious and aphelions, each orbital revolution; this being effected through reciprocating tlectric currents or lines that exist and undulate between the planetary bodies, and which currents ire used to carrv on these planetary changes with. These changes continue from perihelion to aphelion, and from aphelion to perihe Hon again, and are in proportion to the amount of eilipticity in their orbits the greater the eilipticity the greater the chanties. These chauges and the longi tudinal conjunctions are the first or primary base or cause of our most violent storms and electric earth disturbances. Prof. Mansill predicts an unusually wild winter, while his forecasts for the year 1989 are: The yar 1889 will be among a group of crop producing seasons that is ex pected to furnish & favorable tempera tore for the production of a full or prob ably more than an average yield of an Indian corn crop in the favorable belt for that cereal. The showing is doubt ful over the same district for spring wheat and a somewhat better prospect for winter wheat. Good wheat crops are anticipated .iu Great Britain and Northern Europe, but cool, wet weather is predicted just bt fore the grain is ripe, and much damage from bad harvest weather. A strong prospect of crop failures in India, owing to droughts and high temperature is pointed out. The I -"land City Club. The new club rooms of tbe Island City Club, were formally opened yesterday. Tbey are located in Star block over the W. U. telegraph office. The hall com mittee has been hard at work for the last two week carpeting and furnishing the rooms, which now present a. very com fortable appearance for the winter, where the members cat) spend their eve nings in the way of gymnastic exerciaes, debates and other amusements. The committee on by-lawa and consti tution has reported to the president of the club that it is ready to make its report, pursuant to which the president has issued a call for a meeting to be held at the new rooms1, tomorrow at 7:30 p m., and desires all members to be present.

McKenzie's man agement of Mississippi river improve ments, has been severely criticised by prominentAwtmboat men. The latest to snstan Mai. Mackenzie, is Cant. Sam Van Bant, than whom there is not a bet ter posted man along the river. He has written the following communication to the Pioneer Prett: Winona, D c 13. To the Editor: I read your editorial, "An Unwarranted Attack," in today's Pioneer Pre$ with pleasure. As one deeplv interested in the improvement of the Mississippi river ana eomewbat engaged in the navigation of the same, please accept thanks for your vigorous words. In proof of your position, let me state, if not trespassing too niU'Sh, that our steamer Musser made some fifteen or twenty trips, with a log rf I in tow, from the Ht Paul boom (some three miles above your steamboat ladling) to Pree- cott during the lowest stage or water dur ing the season jubi closed. 1 he Musser U one of the largest and heaviest draft raft boats, drawing more water than the steamer Pittsburg, the largest boat of thu Diamonu Jo line. I state this it will not be claimed ttiat only the lightest draft boats could be used in the ot. Paul rivtr imfflo during low water. We entered upon the runs riing of logs in the St. Ptul river with a good deal of hesitancy, owing to the very low stage of water, but we never had any trouble whatever, and never got aground, even for a short time; made trips daily and easily returned after dark Kern em ber, too, our rafts were five hundred feet long and one hundred fret wide a large tow for low water and a narrow river. Two other boats also were successful in running rafts over this river. Facts speak fnt themselves. It. has been dem onstrated that rafts can be run in low water from St. Paul. In mv opinion it never could have been done without the government improvements, steamboat men, universally almost, are nf the same opiniun. Not only in the Si. Paul river. but during the whole distance to M. Louis, have the government improve ments made it possible to successfully navigate boats and rafu during low wat er. When it is remembered that about one hundred raft boats are constantly employed during the season, and that they tow to market some one thousand million feet of logs and lumber,snme idea of the ureal benefit of the government improvements are manifest. It seems strange that the St. Paul chamber of commerce should spe&k ad versely of a work that is doin, and is finally destined to d, so much for her prosperity. St. Paul should be first to urge the grand work, and impress up"n her representatives in congress the need of larger appropriations. The work has been greatly retarded by the need of am pie funds. The Pioneer Pre$ can do nothing that will please the friends of improvement of the Mississippi more than to battle in the lu?ure, as it has in the past, for much needed deepening of the channel. Some of the surplus that we heard so much about during the late campaign could be used to good advan tage in said work. Sam Van Sant. The I-ower St. Lavrrenre reople.

But my ! advent among them had aroused in some way the national suspicion, and conscious that even if I labored for a month I could not remove their mistrust, I withdrew and returned to my canoe. The explanation was subsequently iven me, partly by acquaintances who knew the people, and partly by knowledge of the peo ple's history, traditions and superstitions. In early times officers of the government went about the parishes and took the names of those liable for military duty, who were afterward often called out; and even to this day the ignorant inhabitants have a great unwillingness to give their names; even the census officer is often much annoyed unless tho cure tells his flock to give him informa tion; moreover, many of them believe that any man who has their narafs or their por. traita can command their persons through oc cult forces.

Then they generally believe in witchcraft, nnd one of the means ior warding off spelln is to place the thumb of each hand in tho palm and close th? fingers over it three times.

THE BTATE OP MI0HIGAN BEATEN Id a Claim That Involved 1,700,000 Acres of Laud Springer' Additional Section to Hit Omuibns Mil Rlddleuerger and Hln Rnaolatloii Sensation Ovuv the Appointment of the Succeiior to At torney Sllr A Copyright DecWion. Wasiusoton City, Dec 18. An impor tant decision was rendered by Secretary Vilas yesterday in what is known as the Michigan eranip land case. This was a claim brought by the state against the United States, involving the right to about 1,300 acres of land in the Red City and Mar quette land districts of the state, under the swampland grant of jt&l. The lands in question were reported under dates of March 185 it and FeU 19, 1M53, to the general land office by the surveyor general of Michi gan as swamp and ovei Sowed land. Lists embracing a Large part of these lands were approved by the secretary of the Interior, but none of them wnt to patent. The state legislature, in 1S51, p:ias.i an act by ' which it was agreed that the designation of the swamp lands under the act ot K0 should be made from the Add notes of the survey on rite in the surveyor general's office. Subsequently, under act of congress instig ated by joint resolutions of the Michigan legislature, re-surveys were made, it being represented that the surveys already made were valueless b-cause of ttwir inac curacies. By these re surveys large tracts of land originally reported as swamp were not so classed, and in subsequent lists theso lands were not included. Tne patents were all based upon the rlid notes of the corrected surveys. Now the state claims that the first certifi cations were conclusive of its right, and that it is entitled to the lands described therein, notwithstanding the amended and substi tuted lists sut frequently certified and patent ed. It also claims that the act of March 6, IH.7, absolutely confirms its title to all the lands described in such certification made in correction and substitution thereof. While this claim directly involves about 1,3 fO acres tneqnestions luvoived in its decision are said to apply to oLher ras-a in which the state claims about 1,700, Ot'O acres, including a large part of the lands granted to the state for tiie Grand Rapids & Indiana, the Flint & Marquette, and the Jackson, Lansing & baginaw Railroads. The secretary stites that the records show that the government steadily maintained the posilition tha t the corrected re-surveys should form the basis of the grant and that the state did not protest against this position prior to atout lisn t. when a movement began looking to the prosecution of the present claim. He thinks now that the intervention of the department in favor of the state would in most cases operate only as the expression of the opinion that the state possessfS a better title than has treen conveyed to the grandees of the government, and would be an attempt to invest the state with a title by patent after other patents have already been issued. Ihe secretary adds that no evidence furnished to show that the lands claimed now are, or at the date of the act were, in fact, swamp or overflowed. The secretary denies the obligation on the part of the government to follow the orig inal surveys because of an alleged agreement between the land office and the state to adopt the field notes as a basis. The depart ment could not add to tho granting act of congress; and further the action of the de partment and its acceptance by the state during so many years can leave little doubt that the field notes referred to were intended to be those which furnished the best evidence of the fact, and this meaning of the sup posed agreement must be accepted accord ingly. The decision further points out the in equity of the claim to lands which are not in fact such as were depended in the grant, and which never passed to pi tent, and to which no right exista, except such as may be drawn from a mistake arising from false ev idence. The genera! land commissioners dtcisinn h affirmed. THE DAKOTA ADMISSION &LL. Addition to SprlngerS Omnihn t and Their rrovlnlonw. Washington Crrv, Dec. IS.

He then wanted to withdraw the resolution, and to this Dawes objected, while Harris of Ten nessee eulogized Ingalls as an impartial and efficient presiding officer, and moved to ta ble the resolution. The chair heaped coals of fire on Riddle hergeHs head by deciding that he could withdraw bis resolu tion, as it did not need unanimous consent to permit him to do so.

Milwackee, Wis., DdC 18. A very im portant meeting of tbe millers of tbe country opened yesterday at tbe rlankinton House. It was called ostensibly to talk over tbe sit uation, but from the drift of argument shown at yesterday's session it was clear that a majority of those present contemplated something very like a trust There is a large attendance, all the millers' associa tions ot the country being represented. There are present by proxy Minnesota, Mis souri, Illinois, Kentucky, Onto, New York, Nebraska, iscousin and Dakota territory. The Minnesota delegation is the largest, in cluding a large contingent from tbe Minne apolis millers, who are in tbe lead in tbe de mund for a fljur trust Prom tbe tenor of conversation beard among individual dele gates there is likely to be considerable oppo sition to the combine by the smaller millers, nut the friends of tbe combine have two third of the convention. Delegates say by far the greater amount of capital is invested in tbe smaller mil is. The convention was called to order at 2 oVtciE by Frank L Greenleaf, of Minne apolis. Edward Sanderson, of Milwaukee, was chosen chairman, and J. M. Turner, of Mmneajtotis, secretary. A. A. I reeman, of LaCrosse, said he be lieved that srmo arrangement to curtail the output of nmr must be entered uito if. the mdlmi industry was to lie kept eut of bankruptcy. He said there was not to ex ceed .00 mills with a cipacity of aoO tarrels of flour a day, while tbe mills of lesser ra pacity nundwred U.OO1- Oue hundred mills in the spring wueat section and iiiXI in the winter wheat section practically controlled the output Mr. Freeman brought in the sugar trust to show the advantages of co-operation. Even those outside the trust kept up the prk-e after tbe trust was formed, as they found it to be to their twnent. Mr. rrcemm reconinwnded s stoppage of nulla for two weeks in January, one week each la February, Match and April, and "then go as you please. Klward ISanderson, of Mil wan k took the floor for a sarcastic speech tearing rather heavily on the Minnesota and Dikota millers, who finding a shortage of ;5,0O(J,Q HJ bushels ot wheat in the northwest had bid the price up and now wanted help If the price of flour weut too high people would not buy it Tnere was plenty of corn, rye ai:d potatoes, which would take its pince. heat in New i rk could be purchased for 11.05 per bushel, and a arrel of fljur be mtnufa-turel for 5 good enough for any body, in the northwest milters had to pny $1.25 on account of the action of tbe Minne apolis millers. Lewis HiiKhs, of St Louis, said the Southwestern Miller's association bad com bined to curtail the output The grangers of the southwest had got the idea that a flour trust bad U'cu forinnd and agreed anion; themselves mt to use flour, but had taken corn instead. Htiii siuct Nov. VJ the. millf had not bet-n run ovt?r halt timo, and the speaker thought this would continue untd the relations Iwiweeu the demand and sup ply are regulated. President C. H. Setbt, of tne Nation Millers' association, said that if it could b. proved that ihe Noma consumption would eventually use up ail the flour, delegate would vote to -uittti the output; but if, on She other band, there wavbown to be a sur plus that would eventually have to be ex ported, as now snspected, it is douotful if millers would enter into such a combination the expert governed tbe price. A. A. Freeman offered a resolution to the effect that it was the sense of the meeting that the mills should abut down for two weeks in January, one week in February, and one in March. Ferdinand SWwmacher, tbe "oatmeal king," of Akron, Ohio, thought a decrease tc tliree-fmirtlis time for each mill was enough. if all mitis faithfully lived up to sm-li ex agreement. Charles Hullnrd. of Louisville, offered resolution thnt Oj mil in i i limiwl do for one-fourth of tbe working time in the first four months of lsW. Mr. Seibt thought the remedy proposed too homeopathic. The delegates should put their feet down and say one-half time in January, on-fourth in K-hriiarv and March. An amendment to Sir. Hullnrd's resolution to this effect ws offered by A. A. Free man, and after further diousshm the whole matter was laid over. A delegate then moved that a committ of two from each state be appointed for the purpose of arranging a programme. A delgatf from Dakota jumped to his feet with the protest: "Thats always the way. Dakota is alwnvs lft out in the cold We were at HuITrIo. Vhen we went to Chi ca?o we were given a double delegation. Amid eener U laughter it was mnvnd and carried that Dakota le allowed fou- dele gates on the committee. The convention ad jot i rued until this morning. Last evening a banquet was given to the visiting delegnUs at the rlankinton iloice by the local millers and tho various railroad lines. Two hundred covers wm laii President Cnnpoi, of tbe chamber of com merce, delivered tbe address of weh-ome. Speeches w-ire also made by George W. Peck, C. E Andrews, C. C. Rogers and others.

Ikw Om.KANS, Dec 18. A special to The Picayune from West Point, Miss., says: News reached here yesterday morning of a horrible tragedy enacted Sunday nigbt at the village of Wabalak, Miss., forty miles south of West Point on tbe Mobile & Ohio railroad. Five white men were killed out right and six wounded, three mortally. The particulars of tbe shooting are given as follows: Some two months ago a white farmer living a few miles from Wahatak lost bis gin house, together with eight or ten balea of cotton, by a fire which was evident ly tha work of incendiaries. Suspicion pointed to two negroes living in the vicinity, with whom the farmer had bad some trouble. Sufficient evidence having been secured, au officer Sunday night attempted to arrest one of tbe negroes. The negro re sisted arrest and succeeded in making his escape, after having brutally assaulted the ofRV-er. The whites in the neighborhood then organized to capture tbe ngro, and proceeded toward tbe fellow's house with the intention of arresting bun. before reaching the house, however, tbey were fired upon from ambush hy fifty well-armed negroes, and every white man in the party ;was shot down. The horror-stricken people have tel egrnphed for aid. Seventy five armed men left .Meridian, Miss., yesterday morning for the scene of the tragedy, and West Point will furnish more help A special from Macon, Miss., tn The Times-Dem or rat says: The following are tbe facts as to the Kemper county nbtin: A negro brutally beat a white boy, son of Mr. INieho.S'm. A party of whites went to the neighborhood unarmed Sunday night intend ing to whip the negro. They were fired on and three were kilted, and several wounded. It was rejkorted last evening that seven of the negrous implicated were shot jvsterday morning. Two armed squads left here yesterday for the scene of the trouble. A Cm um bus, Miss., special to Tbe Pica yune says: 1 ersons arriving froTi Arteia bring particulars of the lighting- near Wab- alaka. On Friday a negro and white toy quarreled, and when the white hoy's father separated them, the negro attacked and beat tbe white man. The latter swore out a war rant for the negro's arrest, and on Saturday Constable Setb Cobb wont to the negro's house to execute it, but was attacked and beaten by a number of negroes. The con stable summoned a posse of twleve men, and went again on Sunday to arrest ihe negro. The posse were tired upon from am bust), and five killed outright and six wounded, some seriouslv. Tbe news spread rapidly, and the negroes were strongly reinforced. A telegram was scut from Vt ahalak for help, and seventy-five armed men were sent from Meridian. Others joined them at every station, and on reaching Wahalaktbe party marched directly to tbe scene of ths disturbance. The negroes were barricaded, and refused to give up tbe bodies of tbe dead bite men. At noon the opposing forces were supposed to be about equal, and a bat tle seemed imminent News received yesterday afternoon indi cates that the belligerent blacks have re treated to the swamps, where they siow a bold front, while the non-combatant negroes are fieeina to the woods in terror. Capt McDowell, of the Columbns rifle men, has telegraphed tbe sheriff of Kemper county, offering assistance, but no reply has been received. There is much excitement over the affair, and new developments are anxiously waited. The list of dead is: Henry Maury, Seth Cobb, Tom Nicholson, Bill Vaugban, Bill Hare. Wounded : Frank Mauiy, Tom Giles, Bob Harper, H. L. Harper, John Dew, Jeff Ihomas. Memphis, Tenn., Dec, IS. Telegrams re ceived here give tbe following account of tbe fight at Wanilak: The not siarted from a negro named George Maury whipping Tom JSicliolson's son, white. ichoiimit the eider attacked Maury about it and the negro whipped htm severely. A crowd of tutwtMn gama wmt out in the country almut nine miles to at tend to the negro. It wems the negro had heard of it and bad gathered a crowd, which was well armed. Ihe whites advanced to the bouse. Mr. Frank Maury went the door and called for George, and they told him be was be smoke-bouse. vt hen be turned round the n crues fired on bim, putting buckshot in bis arm and shoulder, and the firing begun. Tbe negroes were all picketed around in the lour bouses and fence corners, and almost surrounded the whites. Tbey killed Henry Maui-y and Seth Cobb outright. Frank Maurv is fatally wounded and Bill Vaugban also. Tom Giles and Tom Nichol son are slightly wounded. Only three of the crowd came back and reported. We did not have any men to go to their rescue. It whs v a m. before we cuuld get aid enough to get the dead bodies It i said tbe negroes held the place until after snn-up and disbanded, it is a mountainous country and we don't know whether tbey nave gone entirely or are hiding in the vicinity. A crowd from Meridian came up, but they did not to out to ; tbe scene. Tbey were met by parties carrying the dead bodies, and turned back. A crowd went to tbe place and found no sign of hu manity. Th negroes had moved every thing in houses but furniture. They carried all their bedding, which shows tbey have not gone far. It 1 a thickly settled negro quar ter, and they can rate about 2U0 negroes under the sound of horns. It is left with the outside world to say what shall be doue now we are at our row's end. 2:30a. m A special from Meridian, M says: lhe second party or lorty wmw who left here on a special train for Waba lak report that everything is quiet there at nightfall. 1 hey say their presence is not needed, and will probably return to-day.
