Washington, D. C, Nov. 4, 3:00 a. m. President Harrison spent the evening at the Executive Man sion receiving the returns. AVith him were Attorney General Miller and Secretary Rusk. Secretary Tracy dropped in on the party lor a few momeents, on his way to his residence from the railway station, when he arrived from New York. Tvvo wires brought Western Union bulletins direct to the telegraph room of the White House, and these, with the United Press dis patches brought by a messenger from its otlice here, were laid be fore the President and the two members of his oificial family as soon as received. Many private mes sages were also bronght in. Secre tary Blaine, at his big house near the Executive Mansion, was fur nished with election news by the telegraph companies and press as sociations. Secretary Noble did not seem to share in the natural ex citement to learn the way things were going, for he went to the theatre; the other members of the cabinet were out of town, Secretary Foster in Ohio, Secretary Proctor in New York and Postmaster Gen eral Wanamaker in Philadelphia. The excitement in Washington over the elections was confined largely to department clerks and members of political clubs. The New Telephone SystemGives Holly Springs Quick Communication. Mr. G. B Alford, of Holly Springs, has brought to the Wake exhibit of the Exposition a cotton stalk that had 600 bolls and forms on it before it was transported. It was a mixture of the Peterkin and Peerless cotton, and was a hand some spreading stalk and was eight feet across. It would make four pounds of lint cotton and is the big gest thing in the way of cotton pro duction we have seen. Mr. Alford, having demonstrated that he can make the finest coUon in the coun try, is clearly entitled to a high seat in the synagogue of the Alliance. Mr. Alford tells us that yester day a telephone message was sent from Kollv Snrinss to Apex at - l o . 10:40; copied at Apex and put on the Kaleigh & Augusta train at 10:49. and it reached Raleish at 11:20 on the R. & A. mail. This enables people iii Holly Springs to telephone their letters to Raleigh and have them delivered in less than A SON OF THESPIS. Milton Nobles' New Play to be Present ed To-night. Under the above quaint title Mr. J Nobles has written what he confi dently believes to, be his best play. This play will be produced at Met ropolitan Hall tonight. The story deals with the fortunes of a ycung man, who, in 1861 was the leading actor of a New York theatre. He is secretly married to a young so ciety girl, the daughter of a banker. The bank becomes involved through the scheming of the junior partner, whose suit had been rejected by his senior's daughter. The forgeries that wreck the bank are skillfully contrived to appear the work of the actor, who has temporarily left the stage, and is filling the position of secretary to the banker. So direct doestne evidence of guilt appear that for a moment his young wife stems to doubt him. Crushed and huniili tated he enters the army under an assumed name.

There was a fair crowd at the grounds yesterday and all seemed to enjoy themselves. Among the amusements were caKe eating con tests, foot races, hurdle races, vault ing and contests. These exercises will be daily from now on. Charlie Jones made an excellent balloon ascension, but when Prof. Dennis' balloon was being inflalted some one stepped on the "cut off," severing the parachute from the balloon, and the balloon went up, leaving the Professor surprised and sitting on the ground. The opening of the colored de partment has been postponed until Thursday, when it will be opened with appropriate exercises. Ex Governor Pinchback is in the city and will remain until the opening. There will be an excellent display. To-day at one o'clock Governor Fleming, of West Virginia, will speak at the Exposition. Our people should give him a large audience. This is one of the West Virginia days. Thursday is Oxford day and Goldsboro day. A special train with 600 or 700 on board will leave Ox ford early in the morning arriving here about 9:30.
