Fletcher D. Proctor were defeated in
the caucus of Saturday nit'ht by a
matter of three votes and a delegation ;

The caucus was undoubtedly the!
largest ever held by one party in this
town and the total number of votes 1
cast lo."iS sliows in some measure the ,
height of political feeling which was
embodied. From the time of the
opening of the polls at 2 o'clock until
they were closed promptly on the min
ute'of H there was an almost continu
ous line of voters from the door of
Festival hall to the ballot box, and the
excitement which reigned among those ; ge.-
appointed to challenge doubtful Re
publicans gave additional enlivenment
tilled with tur-
C'tement counters. When the count was
finally verilied Col. Hooker read from
a paper handed him by Clerk Cham
berlain as follows: "Total number of
votes cast U."il of which Mr. McCul
lough receives l.VJ, Mr. Proctor 4ol and
Mr. Clement l.V." Col. Hooker at
tempted to read the list of delegates
elected but his voice was drowned by a
mighty cheer from the Clement faction
which continued to vent its enthusiasm
for several minutes.
The Clement delegation is as follows :
K. W. lilodgett, H. K. Bond, C. O.
Kobbins. C. R. Crosbv, L. H. Rich

nu n seemed to have nearly everything
their own vvav and manv were predict
ing a plurality of over 1:23 and ollering
to wager large sums on their judgment.
After this pre-arranged stampede had
ended, however, it became apparent
that there was something doing on the
local option side and the Proctor men
began to work the challenging racket
in an elfort to head otf all the Clement
votes possible. C. C. Fitts, James
F. Hooker. S. W. Kdgett, K. C. lia
con, C. H. Thompson. George W.
Pierce and E. W. Gibson stood in a
semi-circle around the ballot box and
took turns in attempting to intimidate
voters on whom the slightest suspicion
rested that they were not for the right

you are voting" or "Hold on, who
are you for.' it tlie victim was on nis

Hinsdale authorities gave permission
for its removal. It was then taken to
Moran's undertaking rooms) and sent
to North Hartland on the late train.
The body was in such a bruised con
dition from coming in contact with
the logs that lhe features were unrec
ognizable, but the log drivers believed
it to be that of Miss Manley from de
scriptions they had previously received.
A message was at once sent to North
Hartland and a description of the
clothing which was worn by the girl
when she was drowned tallied closely
with that which was o'n the body.
Miss Manley was the daughter of
Edson L. .Manley of North Hartland.
Iu company with another young wo
man she was playing in a boat which,
was moored to the bank of the river
when in some way the chain broke and
the boat started down stream. The
