Interest in the elections of lust
Tuesday generally centered on the
New York and Philadelphia contests
and on the state election in Ohio.
In New York, McClellan, demo
crat, wins in a hot three-cornered
fight by the smallest, plurality on
record for a successful mayoralty
caudidate. His plurality over Hearst,
municipal ownership candidate, is
but 3,485. Mr. Hearst's managers
claim evidence of illegal acts against
I, 000 inspectors of election, and that
80,000 or his adherents were turned
back from the polls because their
names had already been voted, Dis
trict Attorney Jerome has announced
lie will immediately make a search
ing investigation of the alleged
wholesale frauds, and has ordered
the returns from the 18t,h and 6th
assembly districts carefully guarded.
These are the home districts of Tam
many Leader Murphy and Tim Sul
livan. With two election districts to be
heard from today District Attorney
Win. T. Jerome, independent, had a
plurality over Jarr.es W. Osborne,
democrat, for district attorney of
II, 450 votes. The totals for district
attorney, not including the two dis
tricts missing, were: Jerome 119,638;
Osborne 108,188; Shearn, municipal
ownership, 72,492; Flammer, repub
All through Ohio the belated re
turns showed republican losses and
republicans concede Pattison's plu
rality reaches 26,000. The democrats
claim Pattison's plurality approxi
mates 55,000, which would elect the
entire democratic ticket. The legis
lature is democratic.
The city party's (reform) plurality
in Philadelphia is 43,333 for sheriff.
The upheaval was the greatest in
fennsylvanla for many years.
The Maryland legislature is demo

I The Street Car Cak.se.
Some Interest attaches to the case
of the city against the Palatka and
Heights Street Railway company
now being heard before Judge Wills
iu the circuit court, and at a special
term called for the purpose.
The City of Palatka has brought
this suit for the purpose of annulling
the franchise of the street railway
company, alleging that the company
has not complied with the terms of
its franchise regarding grades and
conditions of track, etc.
During Tuesday and Wednesday
the time ot the court was occupied
in hearing argument of council on
points of law with the jury outside.
The introduction of testimony be
gan on Wednesday afternoon and
was continued throughout the day
yesterday and this morning. There
were many witnesses to examine
botli for the city and the street car
In so far as the attorneys in the
c:iBe are concerned it is a battle of
the giants at the Palatka bar. Hon.
S. J. Hllburn appears for the city as
city attorney, and Judge Robert W.
Davis of Tampa, for years a lead
er at the Palatka bar, represents the
street railway company. These men
are old time partners and this is the
first time they have ever been array
ed against each other. There have
been some hot tilts.
In the city the case Is facetiously
raferred to as "the livery stables ver
sus the street cars," and there does
appear to be some animus.' The peo
ple generally are not taking much
interest In the outcome.
The street railway is a shabby con
cern run on a mule basis. The best
that cau be said in its favor is that
its owner has promised to, give a bet
ter and modern service, and to give a
cash bond to back up his promise,
just as soon as the city puts its
streets in condition to warrant the
The streets of Palatka are not now,
nor have they ever been in such con
dition as to warrant maintenance of
track grades. This condition will be
remedied within the next year, after
the completion of the lot connections
to the sewers, and the laying of the
water pipes for the new municipal
The case may be brought to an

turning of a lamp m the small cor

the store ran when he saw the blaz

might have been averted.

its path except possibly one or two
small shanties away from the direc

by bucket brigades.
The water supply was a failure.
The Are boys couldn't throw a
stream, to the top of a one story
shanty. They did nobly with what
little water force they had. One or
two of them had their whiskers
scorched and their clothes nearly
burned off in the battle. Frank
Hagan was one of them. When a

light pole caught fir an effort was
made to put it out but the water
stream wouldu't reach within 10 feet
of the blaze and the effort had to be

Mrs Anderson of Florida.
Mrs. Patton Anderson returned to
Palatka this week from her sum
mer's visit with relatives and friends
In her "old Kentucky home." Mrs.
Anderson is frequeutly mentioned in
the-press aa "Mrs. Anderson of Flori
da," a distinction given her as due
to her position as honorary president
of the U. D. C. of the state, and from
the further fact that she is among
the laBt surviving widows of the dis
tinguished Confederate generals
who played a conspicuous part in
the stirring war events of the '60's.
The Bowling Green (Ky.) Times

that place, says:

command, which he held until he
was severely wounded at the battle
of Jonesboro, Georgia. He and his
command had been marching and
fighting with scarcely any rest for
more than three days, and werejoom

at this moment a minnie ball struck
him in the mouth, cutting otT part of
his tongue and tearing away one side
of his face. He Immediately turned

was falling from ins norso. it was
thought that he would not recover,
