The Vote of 1894.
The Philadelphia Press has made
a careful compilation of the vote by
states in the recent congression
election which presents some highly
interesting and significant features
Now that the ballot in the Ne
braska legislature has been taken
for United States senator and the
pop candidate received more votes
than did poor Billee Bryan, per
haps the friends of that gentleman
will now realize that he was all the
time but a catspaw for less mouthy
but more astute politicians the
leaders of the populistic aggrega
tion. In fact he was but a sort of
post for their convenience. Of such

The republican vote was 5.588,226,
the democratic 4.140, 4o(, tlie popu
list 1,246.752 and the prohibitionist
219,842. As compared with 1892
there was an increase ot 41,144 m
the republican vote, a decrease of
1.40S.462 in the democratic, an in
crease of 205,724 in thepopulist.and
a decrease of 44,290 in the prohibi

vote in these two states came as
near the lbVJ, hjrures as it did in
the rest or the country the lallinjr
off iii the vote of the country the
this vear was only about S02.000.
Pwo significant features in this
exhibit are the trillin"- decrease in
: arrrerate vote as compared to
that or lbVJ, and rue rreat increase
in the republican total. 1 he lall
ing off of only 802,000 in the vote of
the country shows the great extent
of the popular interest in the can
vass. In mid-presidential term
elections there is usually a heavy
decline in the aggregate vote. Al
though a house of representatives
and legislatures to choose part of
the senate are elected in those years,
it is-ordinarily impossible to get out
anywhere near the number of voters
who participated in the election two
years previouslj-. Thus the rule is
that the vote of a presidential year
is never closely approached until
four years later. An increase in an
off year" in the vote of agreat par
ty as compared with -the vote for
president two years earlier, such as
the republicans scored this year,
has oscurred so seldom in the en
tire history of the country- that the
elections of 1S94 would be memor
able on that account if for no other
Of course that growth of 205.000
in the populist vote as compared
with 1S92 does not mean that that
part- is increasing in strength.
Much of its additional strength in
1S94 undoubtedly came from demo
crats whose disgust was too great
to allow them to support their
party's ticket and not enough to
bring them over to the republicans,
but who compromised by voting "in
the air" for populist candidates
who had no chance of election.
Nearly all of those voters probabl
will be back in their old fold in
1896. It is easy to see that as a
vital. arjTessive force populism is
on the decline. Notwithstanding
its increased vote in 1894, it elected
fewer congressmen than it did in
1S92. Iii most of the states of the
northwest which it has dominated
in the past two years it was routed
in the last election, and in that re
gion it has no chance to regain its
foothold. It may. and probably
will. change its field of operations
to the south, but as an element
with which the great parties are
compelled to reckon, populism is a
dead and gone factor in the coun
try's politics. Globe-Democrat.

Found In the Niobrara River.
EVIDENCES OF LYNCHING.
Rope Still Fastened Around the Neck
Shows That lie Had IJoen Hanged by
UN Abductors Mullihan and Oth
ers Charged With the Crime.
O'Neili, Neb., Jan. 21. Barrett
Scott's body was fouud about 10 o'clock
Saturday irij4.it in the Niobrara river,
about o00 feet below the bridge, ou the
Boyd county side close up to the bauk,
and in about seven feet of water, He
was in his shirt sleeves, but had hia
watch and chain and other personal ef
fects on just as he wore them iu life. A
uew hempen rope, about one and one
half inches in diameter, was nround his
neck and the end, about three feet long,
was dangling iu the water. Evidences
showed that he was hanged by the vigi
lantes before being thrown over the
bridge into th water. There was a
slight wound in the- right side of his
neck, where a bullet had grazed it, cat
ting through the lobe of the right ear.
The body was found by Dell Akin,
Jake Hersheiser, Sanford Parker and a
half dozen others. A man named Hud
sou, who lives near Dorsey, was the first
to discover the object of their search.
Sanford Parker assisted him to bring the
body to the bank, when a messenger
was dispatched for the coroner of Boyd
county, who had jurisdiction at that
He arrived at daybreak and even in
that sparsely settled country a score of
citizens soon gathered. A jury was im
paneled and all the evidence that could
be gathered was heard. The jury were
not long in agreeing upon a verdict,
of which the following is a copy:
State of Nebraska, County of Boyd: At
an inquisition held at Whiting's britlgo
on Uie Niobrara river, in Boyd county, on
tin; 20th day of January, 1805. lx'foro me,
J. B. Hoover, coroner of paid county, upon
the body of Barrett Scott, lying dead, by
the jurors wliose names are hereunto sub
scribed, the six jurors upon their oath do
say timt from the evidence produced be
fore tbcm they find that on the IHst day of
Decei iber, 1SI4, by shooting aud hanging
with rope by the neck until he was dead,
in the county of Holt and state of Ne
braska, and that George D. Mullihan,
Moses Elliott and Mert Roy, and other
citizens of Holt county to the jurors un
known, were guilty of the killing. The
jurors further believe from the evidence
that the body was carried to the bridge
and then thrown into the Niobrara river,
from whence it was taken. The jurors
further find from the evidence advanced
that said killing was unlawful, malicious
ly and feloniously done by the said George
D. Mullihan, Moses Elliott and Mcrt Roy
and others to the jurors unknown.

The remains were then carried to
O'Neil, where they arrived at 3 o'clock
Sunday afternoon. The body was taken
to the undertaking rooms of O. F. Big-
lin, where it was seen by hundreds of
people. The corpse still lies on a stretch
er just as it was taken from the river.
That it is the body of Barrett Scott no
one can doubt. He was a man too plain
ly marked to bo mistaken, and the last
doubt as to his fate is set at rest.
Now that Scott's sad fate is fully
known the hunt for tho murderers takes
on fresh interest. New warrants were
sworn out for the arrest of Mullihan,
Roy and Elliott, on the charge of mur
der, and a warrant was also sworn out
for Fred Harris on a similar charge.
Harris is a farmer who lives about three
miles from Parker, and the searchers now
claim that they have absolute proof that
these four men are among the guilty
parties. Officers left Sunday evening
with the warrants.
The news that the body had been
found was broken to Mrs. Scott by Ed
Hersheiser. She had never entirely
given up hope, and when the fear that
he had been murdered was made a cer
tainty to her, her overstrained nerves
gave way, and since then she has been

Morrison was arraigned before the
county judge for tho murder of A. V.
Harris and pleaded not guilty. This is
the first time ho has been seen since the
murder. His nose is badly mashed and
both eyes are blacked. This was caused
by the senflb he and Harris had before
the shooting. While the complaint was
being read he sat with downcast head
and tears in his eyes. When asked to
plead he spoke in a low aud trembling
tone. The preliminarv hearing will be

MAJOR JOSKPH H. PADDOCK DEAD.

Away at Omaha.
Omaha, Jan. 21. Major Joseph W.
Paddock, one of the pioneers of Douglas
county and of Nebraska, died at 12:20
Sunday morning at his home west at
thieoity. About two weeks ago ths
major was made ill by a severe cold,
which soon developed into pneumonia.
Hit condition was not thought to be
dangerous until Thursday, aud not un
til Friday evening was all hope of his
recovery given up. His children were
at his bedside when the end came.
Major Paddock was born in Matena,
N. Y.. April 27, 1825. His early life
was passed in the Empire 6tate,
where he received his education. He
was appointed clerk of the first house of
representatives, and was also clerk of
the first district court that was held in
Nebraska. In the meantime he had
made a brief visit to his former home in
New York, where he was married in
1M8 to Miss Susie Mack. A son and
daughter, Ben S. Paddock and Mrs. W.
A. Anniu, are residents of this state.
Returning to Nebraska, Major Pad
dock served as a member of the house
of representatives in 1858, 1865 and 1806,
and :w a member of the city council of
Omaha in 18!9. He was one of the first
of the Nebraska pioneers to fall into line
in the defense of the union, and when
tho First Nebraska infantry was organ
ized he went into the field as captain of
company K. He served four months
with the regiment aud was then detailed
on staff duty. In April, 1862, he was
appointed to the adjutant general's
corjs and attached to the staff of ften
oral Steal. In May, 1863, he received
his major's commission and served in
that capacity nntil August, when his
resignation was accepted.
At the endjof the war Major Paddock
accepted the position of secretary and
manager of tho Western Transportation
company, which was then engagod in
freighting from the end of the Union
Pacific system to the mountains-. After
ward he was stock and general claim
agent of the Union Pacific, and in Jan
nary, 1891, he was appointed govern
ment inspector of the road by President
Harrison. He lived on a handsome
farm of 40 acres a few miles west of the

took place in the house over a relief
measure, appropriating $100,000 for the
purchase of supplies, food and fuel to
bo distributed by the state relief com
mission through county and precinct
subcommittees. Applicants for relief
are required to show by affidavits of
freeholders that they have resided iu
their respective counties six months

ing person is punishable by 500 fine or
SO days' imprisonment. The fight, as

Btreet railway strike. The mobilization
of the First brigade, coraposod of New

place in various parts of the city the last
24 hours. Last night trolley wires were
cut in all directions, those who per
formed the work escaping detection.
During tho day a mob blocked the Sev

moments later, thus avoiding a collision
with the police, while effectually stop

they could not retaliate. Tho Brooklyn

to abandon the attempt. The motormeu

w;is proceeding up Broadway to Halsey
street under escort of the Sixty-ninth
battalion, Major Duffy, at the corner of
Halsey street and Broadway, a mob of
1,000 men guyed and jeered the militia
and some few stones were thrown. The
crowd was so great that Major Dnfty
ordered a charge, and his soldiers, with
fixed bayonets, charged on the mob aud
dipersed it. Quite a number of men
were trampled under foot and some
slightly wounded by bayonots.
Master Workman Connelly said: "To
day the strike situation looks brighter
for us than it has at any time during
the past week. There are many things
to discourage us. The people are with
us and individuals are doing all they can
