During the campaign the Russells, who are staunch Republicans, interested themselves deeply in the election of Mr. McKinley, although no coercive meas ures were used upon the men save one, and that only by highly significant inti mation. O i Monday the price lists of the piece workmen were taken up, the Democrats in the shops saying that dis crimination was made between them selves -and the Republicans, whose card were not bothered. These price lists are slips on which are scheduled the prices to b? paid for piece work. Yesterday i large number of Democrats received their cards with the prices revised, a cut of 33 per cent be ing ma te on every article. Other work men who were paid by the hour, were alsa no titled of this enormous reduction. Oae of these, Edward JShehan, a machin ist, at oneo tendered h's resignation, and it was promptly accepted. He was notified of the cut by foreman Garrigues, who at tho time told him that it was not on account of his conduct or his work manship, assuring him that his work had been fully up to the standard, lie gave the order because he had been in structed to do so by C. II. Russell. Mr. Sheehan demanded to know if it was done because he was a Demo crat, but received no answer what ever. Three or four others who received the revised cards also left the shops for tho day. This intelligence was quickly disseminated throughout the city. Upon hearing it Lieut. Gover ner Warwick, the newly-elected Demo cratic successor to Congressman McKin ley, could scarcely bring himself to be lieve it. Investigating the story he found it to be only too true. lie imme diately said: "What an outrage, what a shame! It is terrible, terrible! I am shocked and surprised, indeed, by this infamous act.

J Sat urday morning's Post prints a highly sen sational interview with Senator Black burn, in which the distinguished Ken tuckian gives a graphic accouat of Secre tary Blaine's denouncement of the McKinley bill before tho senate finance committee last July.

Mr. Young asked the manufacturer if it was tiuo that the reduction had been made, and received the hearty response: "Hereafter in our shops free traders will receivo free traders' wages." Later when asked about the reduction by a reporter, Mr. Russell replied: "I will have to refer you to those workmen, sir." Is tho allegation true?" "I have nothing to say. See tho men," was tho reply, as the manufacturer strode hastily across the street. Later in the evening Mr. Warwick re ceived enough information to justify him, beyond all doubt, that the reduc tion had been made solely on the ground above etated.

He is threatened with tvnhoid pneumonia, and it is doubt ful if he will be sufficiently recovered to attend the Thurman banquet Thursday evening. Mr. Blaine then proceeded to dissect tho bill in a merciless manner, and when informed of the sugar bounty clause, which had been added, said: "It isn't true."

I never saw such an ebullition, but it only empha sized the deep earnestness of the Secre tary," Blackb irn's interview is confirmed by frieuds of Senators Allison and Hale, who told in confidence the episode at the time it happened. It has caused a great sensation, and it is said Mr. Blaine's greatest regret is that he allowed Presi dent Harrison to coax him into taking the stump for McKinley and Quay. The Smallest Act ret. Tbe administration has pulled itself together, and to-day Mrs. Maria Wat kins, a soldier's widow, who is employed at one of the delivery windows of the city postoffice, was made to feel the power of Harrison, Wanamaker and Qiiay's vengeance. Dick Quay, son of his dignified and quiet father, called at the post-office for his parents mail. Mrs. Watkins turned to some of the clerks to inquire as to its whereabouts, and one of the more mischievous, a Democrat who had been reading the Pennsylvania election returns, said: "The senator's mail noy g-es to the dead letter office." Taking the remark in earnest, Mrs. Watkins imparted the information to young Dick. Tho latter rushed off to Po3tmaster-(ieneral wanamaker s oince, and in a short time Postmaster Sherwood received an order from Pious John to suspend the woman, and it was prompt ly complied witn. The woman was per fectly innocent ot any desire to oner in sult, and Superintendent of Delivery Bell, who made the remark, came man fully to the front and exonerated her, but Wanamaker's order went into effect, and the widow of a union veteran was summarily suspended. This is regarded as about the smallest trick of this smalH and hypocritical administration. Sherman's Bitterness. In an interview to-day Senator Sher man has this to say of the Democrats of Holmes county who stood like a stone wall against McKinley 's boodle assaults: "Well, they were rebels during the war, and they have not yet recovered from the prejudices then aroused." It will bo seen that the Ohio Senator still refuses to come into the union, and it is not improbable that the Ohio peo ple will resent this next year by select ing a Democrat to succeed "Honest John." mail is now being carried by the trains on the Roanoke & Southern as far as Madison.

Another good citizen is going to locate in our midst and it is none ether but Dr. Doughton, of Alleghany county, brother to that gallant Democrat, Hon. R. A.

Like the Decalo gue, Has "No Place iu Politics. Later returns confirm the statement given in the Chronicle cf Sunday, of the result of the election. The Demo crats wiU have a majority of 136 over all opposition in the House of Representa tives. John F. Willetts, the Alliance candi date for Governor, says: "We have elec ted 93 members of the Legislature, and will name the next Senator of the United Slates from Kansas. Ingalls will not get a man of them. He is beaten. The fight has bjen made especially upon him and it has been successful." The Republican Central committee concedes the defeat to Ingalls. In New Hampshire the Republicans have decided to attempt to seat the memb-.ra of the legislature elected from to wns and wards which show gains in population which entitle them to extra representation under the new appoint ment. Ibis would give the Republi cans a majority of two on joint ballot. Without these members the Democrats have a majority of twelve on the basis of the recent apportionment, and they would elect the Governor, State officers and the United States Senator to succeed Mr. Blair. The plan is to have tho additional members participate in the organization and vote upon their own qualifications at the meeting of the legislature in January It is claimed the legislature of South Dakota is a tie. The Democrats and Farmers' Alliance mem bers combined control the legislatures of Illinois, Minnesota and Kanses. The democrats have a eh ar majority in the Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin Legis latures.

The National confidence in the prediction, incited by tho memory of the deplorable result to tho Republi can party, following the use of the little weapon by Mr. Harrison himself, would so reduce the price of corner lots that fifty acres of a boom town would bo given in exchange for a single seat in the second-class department of a third rate balloon on the morning of the pro posed quake.

Iven Petroff, special census agent for Alaska, sends an interesting report of his labors to Census Superintendent Porter. He gives no figures of the population, but con- fiues himself to a recital of the difficul ties in the way of taking the census in that far off country. At times he re mained on the beach over night, the Arctic ocean lashing the shore, without fire or shelter; at other times journeying hundreds of miles where there were no signs of population, and still at other times in open boats on the sea, with oar propulsion, to traveling three hundred mile3 between distant islands. Despite all these difficulties Mr. Petroff says the enumerators he employed at various" places bid fair to make a reasonably ac curate census of the inhabitants. W . II. Ar R. S. TUCKER fc CO.
