A good share of yesterday wat spent oy the political wlreworkors in holding meetings nnd arranging for the election which comes oft tomorrow , nnd on the street corners the political outlook was the ono tbemo of con versation. Men of both pir'.los can bo found without trying who will InsUt that their side U going to make a clean sweep and elect the whole ticket , but the moro conservative ones on both sides are free to confess that the situation is very complicated , and that neither ono can claim a sure cinch On tbo case. case.Of Of the republicans , Scanlan Is undoubtedly making a good run. and many claim that he will bo elected sheriff by quite a largo ma jority. Ho Is not only popular personally In the city , but ho has many friends throughout the county who are working for him night and day. Ilnzcn , however , has a largo element to contend against in the cast end of the county , and that fact has been taken advantage of by the republican leaders , and the opinion Is very ircneral that Scanlnn has a good chance to bo eloctod. E. L. Shugart , the republican nominee for the state senate , has riTso dona n great deal of quiet though effective work during the campaign , tbo results of which will be seen at the polls. Both sides are well organized for the con test , and ono of the hottest elections nvor bold in this county mav bo looked for. A large amount of money Is already up on the result , and indications point to the polling of a largo vote. Some , Indeed , are of the opinion that the vote will bo altogether too large. It was re ported Saturday night that a larco gang of men bad been brought down from the gov ernment ripraps , where they are working , and were registered in the Sixth ward. It \ \ also stated that thcso same men registered in Omaba on Saturday ami that they will attempt - tempt to vote In o.ich place. Whether thin report is true or not could not bo ascertained positively yesterday , but the case Is ono which will bear watcntug. A colored man presented himself at the place of registration in the Fourth ward and stated that ho was porter on a dining car and that his place of residence was In the car. Ho was registered without a word on the part of the registrars , nnd this fact , too. is pointed out by lovers of a fair vote as ono which should be looked after.

Uncomplimentary printed or written comn.onts on Russian alTalrs do not usually pass through the Russian mails unscathed , says the New York Sun. Mr. Kontiun complained that the Century was mutilated before it reached his hands when lie was in Russia , althojgh ho had presented loiters and passports ot exceptional strength to the Russian otllcials. The American Hobi-ow ot tlio cut-rent issue prints a fac-similo of onoof its pages as It appeared after the Rus sian censor got through with it. Two iHiragraphs hud been covered with blaeic ink in biich a way as to completely do- slioy them. Ono paragraph thus oblit erated referred to the sympithy ox proisod for the Russian Jews by Stop- milk and Kcnmm. The other challenged Goldwin Smith's understanding of the Russian question. The censor is said to have several ways of striking out objec tionable passages in periodicals or books. Somutimos they are cut or torn out , but the moro frequent way , when the pas- hagus are small , is to "onvlaro" thorn. In this process they are blacked out "by means ol a rectangular hti.mp which has about the width of an ordinary nowspa- jmr column , and which is 'cross-hatched' in such n way that when inked and pressed upon tlio paper it makes n close network - work of white lines and black diamonds. The peculiar mottled or grained appear ance of a page of print that has been blacked out with this stamp suggested to the Russian readers u descriptive slang term for it , namely , 'caviare. ' Any ono who has over ccu the black salted cnvlara of Russia spread upon a slice of bread and butter will appreciate the felicity of the metaphorical com parison. From the noun a verb has been formed , and every Russian tiow undo-- stunds that 'to caviare' means to 'black out' tin objectionable page or paragraph by pressing upon it the censor * stamp. " The American Hebrew hud a number of subscribers in Russia , but complaints of non-delivery became so numerous that they htm to bo abandoned. HAS A MECHANICAL A Michigan Printer Claims Wonder ful Hesiilts from u Machine of HlK Ou'ii Invention. Erie Beals of this city , says a MUP- kogonMich.correspondont.has in vented a typesetting machine. Ho visited Chicago cage this week and found nothing there among Iho typesetting machines exhib ited , similar in principle. Ho lelt today for Detroit , where ample ( inanclal backIng - Ing has been secured. The machine In operation will take the place of twenty men at the case. His invention consists of two t-oparato machineTlio llrst of thc o corresponds to a typewriter and is operated by a compositor who works from the copy , but tins , insload of being printed as by a typewriter , is trans ferred to a strip of paper by perforations made by striking the keys on the linger board , tlio particular letter or character being determined by tlio distance of the perforation from a bao line. This ma chine may bo called tbo perforator and when the copy has thus been transferred to the strip of p.ipor , this is taken to the second machine , which , working auto matically by electricity , sots up the type , anil as each line is composed im- pYcsscs it into mat'-ix paper in a new way that mnkos a perfect mould or mat " rix"of the line. The matrix paper moves along automatically , as the lines are composed until a matrix is obtained for a column of matter. This is then ready for the stereotyping process. The quick fixing of the face of typo in matrix paper Mr. Boals recognized as one of the largest obstacles and at tlio same time a must important und desirable feature of the machine , and he claims to have labored much over this point. His suc cess in tins particular is accomplished bv an entirely now method as to the ap plication of heat that fixes the finest lines of typo faces as clearly as does a metal matrix. By the action of elec tricity on a series of magnets the types are brought into their proper places. A series ot needles passes over tlio perfor ated strip of paper and whenever a needle drops into ono of the holes made by the perforator tlio electric current tlus closed actuates tho. magnet correspond ing to tlio particular letter of that per foration. The action of tlio mactiino is entirely automatic and is also very rapid. The perforator can bo operated as rap idly as a typewriter. But the automatic aligning and impressing machine , will bo capable of handling the'mattor turned off from two or tlireo of tlio perforators. Tlio exports in Detroit who have exam ined his machine are confident that it is practical. U hat Ilccom s of tlio Pennies ? It seems to bo with thorn very much ns it is with pins nobody knows where and how they disappear. Yet thov van ish in some fashion. Lust year the Phil adelphia , mint coined 91,1100,000 of pen nies. It would take a good-si/ed build ing to hold so many , but they did not begin to supply the never satisfied de mand for more. Just now the establish ment referred to is hard at work manu facturing further supplies , and so it will continue. Bronze cents are subject to moro acci dents than happen to any other United States coins. It is said that a penny changes hands in trade ton times for once that a dine passes from ono pocket to another. Being of small value , these little pieces are not taken much care of. There are a thousand ways in which they got out of circulation , and thus tlio minting of thorn lias to bo kept up con tinually. The metal blanks from which they are made by the simple process of stamping are turned out by contract for Uncle Sum bv a factory in Connecticut at the rate of 1,000 for $1. As they como from the machine , fresh and new , they look like glittering gold. Ono ma\ got a notion of the number of pennies lost from the history of the old half cents. Of these 800,000 wore issued a few years ago. Where are they now ? A few are in the cabinets of coin col lectors. None have been returned to the mint for recoinage , or are hold by tlio treasury. Nobody sees them in cir culation All of them , oxcopl some hun dreds saved out by curio-hunters , have absolutely disappeared. Of the old copper - per pennies 11V000,000 ! ) still remain un accounted for , save that once in a long while ono sees a specimen. There are more than 15,000,000 bronze 2-cont pieces somewhere , out of 4,500,000 of them that the government issued. Of nickel 3-cont pieces , nearly 2,000,000 are yet outstand ing , although it is almost never that ono of them is como across. 1 ho Southern 'Arlstooroy. " Now England Magazine : It is the favorite theory of political writers that there was in IbUO a distinct difference be tween northern and southern character , arising out of the fact that the dominant element in tlio north was descended from the Puritan , and in the south was descended from tlio Cavalier. It is now established that no such difference of origin can bo proven. The Virginian , and the Maryland planters , the Now Jersey Quakers and the Connecticut and Massachusetts settlers .sprang from the same class in Kngland. The ele ments chiolly ropfcsonted in all the colonies at the time of their founda tion were the intelligent yeomanry and small land-owners. The aristocracy of which the Houth boasted so much was not descended from the younger or the older sons of Englishmen of rank ; it was made up of the sons and grandsons and great-grandsons of thoto planters who wore the llrat by their shrewdness and energy to acquire largo landed estates The eltmato had brought about som changes , and in the south thereha been developed a class of small land owners , the so-called poor whites , who had but litllo improved during the cen tury previous to the civil war. The original bases of the white population were , however , tno samo. Cold Knots From the "Kiclcor. " M.

[ Special correspond- oncoof TIIK Uii.J : Now York politics tire lively just now. They usually become lively about this tlmo of the year , but tlio result of the forthcoming election promises to play such an Important nnrt In tbo next prcslcicnttnl campaign that more Interest than Is usual In a gubernatorial contest is now being displayed. Men co around wc.ir- lug In thulr button-holes mlnlaturofaucets or ilowers omblomutio of the two candidates for governor. The headquarters of the state re publican and dcmocratio committed , located in the Fifth Avenue nnd Hotlimm house respectively , are swrtrmlnp day and night witli politicians nnd workers who have en gaged to carrv out the regular plan of attack. Hut then , too , the prohibitionists must not bo left out of account. They have again ventured to put a completes ticket in the Held , and to the astonishment of everyone the name ofV. . . [ outlines Demorest does not appear on the list of applicants willing to servo the public. Campaign methods In Now York resemble in a way those In vogue In every other American citybuttho various foam res appear upon a much larger scale. Numerous pu.jlic meetings undnr the auspices of the various ' political clubs are of 'nightly occurrence. They are extensively advertised in the news papers and also by means of posters and handbills , tiiul often attract \ast multitudes who cannot bo accommodated insldo the hall. For tno benefit of this surplus attendance , which is usually anticipated and provided for in ad vance.outdoor exercises are arrangedand the campaign orators of smaller ability obtain an opportunity to spread their wings before a city audience. It was at suca a meeting as this that the recent atfecting scene in which Grover Cleveland and Senator Hill spokt from the same platform took place inside nl Cooper Union , while the bowling mob on the outside were regaled with the effusions of lesser lights. Those clubs which have an overabundance of money precede their ratlfl- nation meetings by torchlight processions. Thcso processions , however , vary in length and dazzling magnificence according to the size of the "barrel1' tapped , as much as the greater part of the participants are attracted not by party feeling but rather the expectation of receiv ing a good American dollar for the trouble they have taken In carrying a torch. In every part of the city can be seen flar ing b.mnors , setting forth detailed tickets of the different parties. Many of Wfo banners are artistically gotten np and decorated with portraits of the heads of the list. Th.it dis played in front of Tammany halt is , of course , par excellence m the eyes of the democratic horde. Tammany has dispensed with the services of the campaign portrait. artl t , but has sup plied its tiger with a pot of paint of n shade of red that leaves nothing to be desired. On this red background the names of the nomi nees of the recular "Democratic Republican Party" have been painted in white letters. Tno side pieces are similarly adorned with the words Flower and Sbcehan , while the top is llnished by the emphatic accusation : "Republican treachery robbed Now York of the world's fair and delayed rapid transit. " The truth or falsity of this grave charco seems to have been left cither to implication or to the convincine ar guments of their stump speakers. And for the next ten days the city is promised ample amusement from the latter source as well as from Mr. Flower nnd Mr. Fassett them selves , who have returned to Now York to wind up the oratorical Onslaught. Tammany has again opened several schools for "instruction in the new method of voting ing , " under the impression that tbo kinder garten of last year did not succeed in en lightening all of its moro ignor ant followers The system followed is much the same as at llrst , and consists of an explanation of the new Australian bal lot law Interspersed by uncomplimentary in sinuations atralnst the republicans and then a practical lesson in the nrtof ofobviatlngtho law by the use of Tammany posters. The individual candldates.hnivover , resort to per sonal electioneering. Bill boards are cov ered with posters announcing the candidacy of this one and that , nnd lithograph portraits are hung in every available conspicuous pl.ico. Conspicuous place means , In this in stance , in every saloon , but it is said that a person would need to look far and wide to llnd very many such institutions upholding the anti-Tammany banner. In those saloons which are the leading political resorts ati extra force of attendants Is required to cater to the election trade. For fraud and illegal proceedings Now Yorit is keeping up its former reputation. The papers are full of accusations , recrimi nations and alleged evidence of the so-called colonization schemes by which boarding houses in doubtful districts are encaged to quarter immigrants from other places free until the election at which they are to manage to vote by moans of illegal registration. The people of Newark had a city election last month In which they at tempted to give Now York a lusson in these nefarious practices. As n result the repub licans have secured evidences of fraud on the part of the democrats and are appealing for a new election. Hero in this city Tammany has stirred up hornets' nests in various quarters. In the Eighth assembly district the defection of the Stecklcos and their numerous following threatens the domination of the tiger. Then , too , in nominat ing Burke Cochran for congress the opposing aspirant was antagonized as much as possible. Although Cochran has accepted and concluded to run , the following dcfcrintion from the Herald shows that the nomination was effected by not very com mendable methods : "There was vety little enthusiasm , because everybody in the room knew that the conven tion's cholco was not an honostouo. Cochran , it was fully understood , would not accept , and the use of tils name Has simply to stave oft proceedings and place the naming of tbo candidate in the bauds of the three who are to make the cholco in case of a declination or accident. The Hcannell delegates retired , looking very dismal. What they will do in the future remains to bo seen. " Turning from the world of politics to the woild of sport , the Interest In football seems unabated. The amateurs In this city were extremely anxious to have tno Yalo-Harvard came played within their roach , but now that it has been accldod 10 hold that match In Springfield as usuul , the Now Yorkers will have to bo satisfied with their local teams nnd the Prlnceton-\ contest. In the professional Held the six-day bloyeio race at the Madison Square garden Is silll discussed. John S. Prtnco started out as the general favorite. Before the race , each contestant was , of course , sure that ho was himself the winner nnd Prlnco was no exception to thorulo. llewas groomed bySenator" Morunn , and Just before the start was presented by Miss Eva U'ulch of the Francis Wilson Dppra company with a red , white and bine slue sash which he waste to wear as umblumatic of his championship ot the United States. Tlo also were the badge of the Manhattan Athletic club. Yet the ch.iUhCs of tortuno uro many and I'rlnco soon dropped out of tbomcoon account of stomach trouoics. Tlio puoplo of Omaha may have an oppor tunity to see nnst of the contestants lu the near tuturo since the management uro nego tiating with the coliseum for the conduct of a similar raco. It might not bo uninteresting to uoto that the reports of the late lynching in Omaha have not redounded much tswbo credit of thnt cltv. Ttu > sensational liead lines In tbo dally papers , bui-h as "In tbo Hands of a Mob.1 "Omaha Terrorised , " wore of a nature to attract attention from the morbidly curi ous. But the Incident was uUo noticed by many of the bettor class of people. This la well hewn by the fact that In the Columbia liiw school one of the pro fessors commented sarcastically upon "tho recent exhibition of lynch law in the west'1 and remarked that lynch justice was , in tbu order of proi/ross , u predecessor of the once cuilomary trial by comhnt , YJCTOII KOSKWATEU , A IillJlTKNXVrS MiIIVl . He Gained Ills Position ti.v Actual Sr-rvloo in tin'Vcit. . A story very much out of the ordinary run of military affairs Is connected with a gen eral order Usued a few days ago bytho war department , nnd will bo of especial local interest became the principally Interested party Is soon to take up his residence here. A Httlo moro than four yei.ra ago , a hand some , intelligent , fair haired lad named Potcr S. Mfirquart was the prldo of the mil itary drum cnrpi at U'e.st Point academy. Ho didn't drum all Mio time , however , as that is a peculiarity that Uncle Sam's drum mer boys have. They are called orderlies and much of their tlmo li occupied in run ning errands and maulugthonnelves gjnar- ally useful to tbc ofllcors and cadets. Young Marqunrt's fathur wna first ser geant of Company E , corps of engineers , sta tioned at the academy , and Peter wauled to bo a soldier too , but the performance of the orderly's functions that fell to his lot b'jrdiy realised his dream of what the ideal soldier's llfo should bo. His parents lived nt "Tho Polnt"where , a year ago. Maniuart , sr. , was retired from active duty after thirty year * of service. The aspiring youth concluded that his chances for succeeding in the path that-ho had marked out for himself would be much better elsewhere than if he remained nt the olllcinl lieutenant factory of the nation , so one day the post commandant was surprised to receive a .otter from the young drummer requesting that he bo transferred to a mili tary post In Minnesota. He said that tip wanted to lit himself for a commission in the army , and ho felt that better opportunities awattnd him in the west , where ho would he ablu to study nnd learn the real duties of a soldier. Tno letter was a genuine surprise. The drummer wanted to defy tradition and dem onstrate to thii world that It was possible in these times of peace for a United States sol dier's son to rise by his own unaided efforts to a hJL'hor position than his father had occupied , nnd take hoiiorablo place among Undo Sam's small army of comtms.siotied oflicers. The request was favorably considered by the commandant. K received his Indorsement , and was sent to Washington whore it was ap proved. Peter was not quite eighteen years of ago when ho received the eagerly looked for order transferring him to an infantry regiment at Fort Snelllntr , Minn. As ho stepped from the parental threshold on a cold December morning , to start for thu west , ho kissed his mother goou-bye and said : "Mother , when I return it will be to place in your hands my commission as a second lieutenant. " How fully ho meant what ho said and how well ho fulfilled bis promise subsequent de velopments will clearly show. Every letter from him brought his parents encouraging n ows. Ho was studious and so closely did ho ap ply himself that he became Known as onoof the most faithful attendants at the soldiers' school at the post and his soldierly conduct soon attracted the attention of the olllccrs. Ho was appointed a corporal the young est in the United States army , nnd thus a part of his ambition was realized , Before a soldier can apply for promotion tea a commission ho must lirst become a non commissioned ofllccr , and the determined young man felt that ho had already passed an important point on the roacl to ultimate sue- cots. His opportunity at last arrived , and ho made formal application. Ha passed a Mat tering examination and his name was for warded to Washington as a candidate for one of the vacant second lieutcnantcies. But little more than a month ago THE " Bih's : Washington dispatches told of "tho ex amination of iion-c'ommi.ssioiiL'il oflicer . Most of them were joung men who had had somewhat the advantage of Peter In birth and advantages , but ho was not deterred from taking the examination , and was much disappointed , thcuch not disheartnned , when he failed to pas ? . The board , howver , was so much impressed with his general appear ance , that ho excited an Interest that event ually secured for him a re-examination. 'x ho result ot the examination is make known in the general order above referred to and which loads as follows : By the direction of tno secretary of war Second Lieutenant Peter E. Murqnurt ( promoted meted from non-commissioned ofllcer ) Is assigned to the Second infantry. Company I , Fort Omaha. Nob. , to date from October 1 , 1891. Ho will be discharged as enlisted man of the unto prior to that of acceptance of appointment and will proceed from Fort Monroe , Va. , to join his company not later than December 24 , IbPl. Second Lieutenant Marquart at once has tened to NowPeltz , X. Y. , where his parents now reside , to make thorn a visit before agaiu starting west , and to fulfill the hopeful prom ise made to his mother f 3ur years ago. Peter E. Marquart is a self-made officer in every sense of the word , and is probahlv ono of the voungeat lieutenants in the service. The news of his appointment created much surprise at West Point , yet none among his well wishers will oo moroslncoro than these same oflicers who first learned to admire his manliness when ho was plain , ordinary Or derly Mnrquart , and they will undoubtedly watch his career as a commissioned ofllce'r which Is soon to begin at i-'ort Omaha with an interest thai is , perhaps , not always ac corded to the young and ambitious oflicers that are turned outof that august institution in the regular fashion.
