V1W .. w THE ELECTION. PrefeaMy Take OMcial Coast to Settle. We had hoped by delaying our issue to Thursday, now to Friday 10 a. m., to be able to record the election of Biaine and Logan, but we cannot do so, although we are not yet altogether without hope that the official returns in New York state will show a plu rality for Blaine. If the Republicans are defeated, the reverse must be attributed to the strong prohibition vote in New York state. The solid, sober sense of this coun try must eventually see that the Re publican party is the party of true progress, holding fast to the good accomplished in the past, while keep ing step with all solid advancement. Of course attention has been chiefly directed to New York state, and tho telegrams fluctuated from sido to side, the last one received here before going to press was dated 1 a. m. Nov. 7, and was to the effect that the offi cial vote of 50 counties gave plurality for Blaine of 59,384 and 69,207 for Clevelaud; tho four counties not in are estimated to give Blaine 9314, Cleveland 487, which would leave Cleveland ahead by 99G. The republican hope hangs some what on a mistake in this estimate. The supreme court of Ohio, three judges affirming and two dissenting, on the 28th ult., declared the Scott liquor tax law unconstitutional. It is claimed that the amount of license collected last year under the law, together with interest will nearly bankrupt all the cities of the state as the court are of the opinion that the amount of licenses will have to be refunded. The decision was rendered by three democrats, two republicans dissenting. In Columbus, Ohio, for example, between $45,000 and $50,000 were realized from the tax last year, and none of the amonnt has been paid this year. The consequence is that the departments are behind two to three months, in the payment of salaries. "It will give the state to the Republicans for ten years," said John A. Shank, a Democrat, who thinks the law a just one. The Fullcrton tragedy continues to excite interest. Some letters, it is claimed, have been found among the effects of Furnival showing that the theories heretofore advanced are all wrong. A number of letters have been found written to Furnival by a certain scion of nobility in England, which prove that Furnival came to Nebraska with a purpose to murder Percival. The latter was heir to a large estate in England, and Furni val's correspondent was the next of kin. About a year ago Furnival made his appearance at Fullerton, coming here direct from England where he had been a neighbor of Per cival. Furnival was warmly wel comed by Percival, and given a lift, financially. Watching his opportu nity, the fiend committed the horrible murders and escaped. This is the latest theory of the crime. The committee having iu charge the proposed Methodist college north of the Platte have decided that any bid for the seminary, in order to re ceive the attention of the committee, must not be less than $20,000 in cash, or its equivalent in endowment, buildings or land subject to the ap proval of the commission. They also decided that 100 acres were necessary for college or seminary grounds, and that uot less than 50 acres could be sanctioned by the commission, as it is expected that the school will eventu ally require this full amount for ab solute use. It has decided that all bids be placed in the hands of the commission on or before the 25th of Nov., '84. The committee adjourned to meet at Fremont, Nov. 25th. Foub yearB ago, after tho election the Chicago Times, a paper at all times regarded as democratic, if some times critically so, closed an article in these words : "The late defeat need not bo attrib uted to any other caoso. Other causes were at work, but they were only in cidental. The tariff was one. Sec tionalism was a second. 'Let well enough alone' was a third. The Oc tober failure in Indiana was a fourth. But all these were trivial,and together could not have accomplised the result. The result was accomplished because the youths of the republic are not democratic. That party is therefore without a future and without a hope. The malediction of the war has pal sied its brain. The curse of slavery has poisoned its blood and rotted its bone. Let it die." Betobe election people inclined to peace were looking towards the great cities with considerable anxiety. In Chicago, especially, trouble was an ticipated becanse of the evident inten tion of fraud. The New York Herald had said: "In Chicago the Blaine men are preparing to play the deputy marshal game." To which the Inter Ocean rejoined: It is not play, but business. The ballot-box and its attendants are in the hands of gamblers and men not to trusted without a close watch. Every honest voter will be allowed to cast an honest ballot, and the Herald stripe of bummers and repeaters, over whose fate it wails in advance, are already doomed. If there is anv law to punish such it will be enforced in Chicago. A tebbible panic occurred on the evening of the 1st inat., at the Star theatre, Glasgow, caused by a cry of fire. During tho rush of the people to escape from the building sixteen persons were killed, and twelve ser iously injured. At the cry of fire the whole audience instantly rose to its feet and made a rush to the several exits. The great mass of people rushed to the pit. In rushing there from,the crushing crowd poured from the gallery, the fearful and fatal blockade, the shrieks of agony and despairing cries for relief could not then be answered. The audience numbered about 2,000. It is claimed that the author of the alarm of fire was a former employe of the theater, who had been discharged. The Lincoln Journal says that Pendleton's speech was in vivid con trast with Morton's on the subject of the tariff, and with a little more go in it and less vagueness, would have answered the purpose of a republican speaker. The Journal adds: ''Un doubtedly the only barrier that hinders him from coming out squarely as a republican is his age and the copperhead speeches he made duriug the rebellion that stare him in the face and that cannot be excused. It iB mnch harder for a copperhead to repent and be forgiven than for an open and armed rebel. Pendleton, unfortnnately for him, went the whole hog with his more brilliant colleague Yallandigham. It will stick to him so long as he lives." Sheriff Zibble, of Fullerton, start ed for Springfield, Mo., on the 27th ult., armed with a requisition from Governor Dawes for George F. Fur nival, the Nance county murderor. Zibble received a telegram from the authorities at Springfield asking for a detailed description of Furnival. It was sent, and word was wired back that the man wanted was at Spring field. It is thought now that Furni val did not go to Omaha as at first supposed, but left the Union Pacific at Papillion, going south on the Mis souri Pacific. Is there any surplus in the treasury of any. Democratic state? Don't all speak at once. Is there any surplus in the treasury of any city ruled by Democrats? A universal chorus of no. The New York papers yell "turn the rascals out," but the treas ury of that city is in debt to-day over $100,000,000, and it is not the rascals who have stolen and misap propriated the money that they want turned out. They want them turned into the Nation's treasury. Inter Ocean. A bepobt comes from St. Helena, Neb., giving the particulars of a tragedy near that place the other day. John Phillips, postmaster at St. Hel ena, and deputy sheriff of Cedar county, attempted to arrest a Daue, name unknown, for burning a num ber of stacks of hay and grain. The Dane barricaded himself and shot Phillips, who was taken home in a dying condition. A posse finally arrested the Dane and hanged him to a tree. A violent storm prevailed at Lon don the other night and day. Houses were demolished at Shields. Vessels in the Clyde were driven from their moorings and many wrecks are re ported along tho coast. Four vessels were driven ashore off Greenock. The steamer from Lisbon for Cardiff and a German cruiser were wrecked. Both crews were Baved. On the evening of the 27th ult., shortly aftor 8 o'clock a distinct shock of eartbquako was felt in Nashua, N. II. It was accompanied by a noise like a heavy explosion, followed by a low, rumbling sound. The general direction of the earth quake was from tho southwest to the northeast. The shock lasted four to five seconds. The Nebraska Signal calls attention to a law passed by the last legislature making it a crime equivalent to lar ceny to purchase goods and then leave tho state without paying for them. Under this law, Jonathan Butler, formerly of Fairmont, waB recently arrested in Iowa and brought back for trial. Suit was instituted. Democrats here and there have made considerable objection to the supervision of the elections on con gressman by marshals of tho United States, but have, as yet, failed to produce a singlo Instance where a fraudulent republican vote was polled, or an honest democratic vote rejected. A United States express package of $7,500 was checked in at the Youngstown, Ohio, office the other evening, bnt was missing from the 6afe when the messenger from Pitts burg was ready to receive his matter. No clue to the thief has yet been ob tained. President Arthub has presented gold watches to Captain Edward Williams, of the British barque Cate Una, and to Captain T. W. Churchill, of the Canadian ship Jessie Burritt, in recognition of hnmane services rendered by them to American crews. The normal school at Fremont opened the other day with good prospects for future usefulness. Fifty students were enrolled at the com mencement and as many more will be enrolled, it is believed, at the end of another week. Blaine's welcome at New York, was a splendid reception, and his response was one befitting the man and the occasion. The republican party has reason to be proud of Mr. Blaine and the canvass that he has made. Arkansas. Gabneb, Ark., Oct. 27, 18S1. Editor Journal: Thinkiug that a letter from this part of the eminent domain of "Our Uncle Samuel" might interest a few of your readers, wo would say that leaving Nebraska the 20th of August our journey from home down to this place was both pleasant and interesting. And that all along the route we were more fully impressed with the correctness of our observations published iu the Journal last summer. But we be lieve the corn crop of our part of Nebraska to be a better average crop than what we saw anywhere on our journey of nine hundred miles. The cotton fields, although below an av erage in growth or prospective yield of the "fleecy staplo," were then a picture of beauty to our mental vis ion, clothed as they were with flow ers of blue, white and shades of pink and purple, with an occasional lower pod already hurst open in full ripe ness, giving us a passing glance at its snowy whiteness. Our visit to Little Rock (the state capital) of two days the latter part of August gave us a better knowledge of its business, its buildings, and also an acquaintance with more of its leading business men. Tho wholesale houses iu drugs, hardware, dry-goods, groceries, glass and crockery-ware, &c, carry a large and full stock and have a largo and increasing business, competing as they do with the immense establish ments of Memphis and St. Louis. In fact the city is a business center of large capabilities, and its flouring mill, with a daily capacity of two hundred and fifty barrels, is a fair index of other branches of business in the city. We ought also to men tion the large cotton-seed oil factory, where thousands of gallons of pure refined oil are made each fall and winter. It is used largely in cooking, but a vast quantity is shipped to Eu rope, bottled and returned beautifully labelled as the pure, unadulterated Olive oil of Italy. Dear Journal, you will perceive that there is cheat in all trades but yours and mine. A city of fair proportions is Little Rock, and beautiful to the eye in its bloom of delicious roses, choice flowers and rare and costly shrubs. But we must finish this letter with the description of a "gentleman of color" residing but a short distance from here and who is to us an ocular demonstration of nature's vagaries, of which we have occasionally read but doubted until the "spotted" gentle man in the living body stood before us gradually changing his "ebon hue" to pure whiteness. This change, so the gentleman informed us, began to appear in small spots on different parts of his body some four years back and have been growiug in size until now there are pieces of white as large as a supper plate surrounded by the original darkness, and from that to the smallest speck just changing its original huo to the whiteness of the pure Circassian. It seems to me that tho whito growths have spread in size during the two months I have been acquainted with him, and he as suredly is a living monnment to the fact that an Ethiopian can bo changed in color if ho cannot change his skin. Peter Taylor would assuredly draw full houses aa a man of two colors, and the physicians of your city would no doubt elucidate the whys and wherefores in much learned non sense why Peter should at thirty-five years of age change his color and probably die a white man. J. Boans. ftoathern Politic. New Orleans, Nov. 1. A Pica yune New Iberia special says that at a political meeting at Lorenville to day some negroes got into a difficulty. Joe Gilfoux stepped in to quiet them, when ho was fired on by a negro, the ball penetrating bis bat. He returned the fire without effect. By this time there was a general resort to fire arms and a general fusilade commenced. Joe Gilfoux was the first to fall, shot dead. He is one of the best citizens and a staunch democrat. Sheriff Theodore Verator waB brought in here wounded, but not dangerously. The parties who brought him say Austin R. Bell, was also shot dead. A. Boutte, a negro politician, and three other negroes were killed. Jules Mcsteyeer and Judge Fontebin are reported among the wounded. A large number of men are under arms thcro and tho excitement is at fever heat. Tho excitement here iB very great. Squads of armed men left for the scene of the conflict. The town will be picketed and patrolled to night. Later A large number of prison ers have been brought in by armed men. Cannot ascertain the number tonight. Thoy are lodged in jail and guarded. Judge Theo Fontebin, Al bert Fontebin, L. Fontebin, and A. fontebin are among the prisoners. The most reliable reports are that the republicans went over there expect ing trouble, and it commenced among the negroes. Judge Fontebin is uot wounded aa at first reported. A. T. Dugas and St. Clair Dngas are re ported wounded. Many others are wounded, but they got off. Most of the reports agree that six negroes were killed, but as tbey stampeded after the first fight it is impossible to say positively how many. ADDITIONAL LOCAL.

Atteution is called to a report pub lished elsewhere of the attendance upon the public schools of the city. Tho highest per cent, of attendance shown for tho pa&t month is in Miss Coalter's department, where, upon an enrollment of 27 there was an average daily attendance of 26, pretty nearly 9GK per cent. The High School comes second on tho list with an average attendance of 30 out of a possible 33, nearly 91 per cent. The two lowest on tho list are 77 and 70 per cent., the averago of tho entire number being 84 per cent., that is, of every 100 children enrolled on the school registers, sixteen of them, for some reason or other, have been absent from their work every day during the past month. Some of these have, of course, been unavoid ably kept out of school by reason of sickness and other good excuses, but wo venture to say that a large pro portion of them might, with a little extra exertion, have been sent to school. Until parents, pupils and teachers fully realize that school- keeping and school-going is work, just as much as any other, and to bo engaged in with tho same prompt ness, fidelity and energy that bring success in any other work, our public, free school system will not be per fect. We believe that it is coming to be generally understood that the pupil's progress at school run6 parallel with his attendance, and parents must not expect that their children who attend during but fifteen days of the school month, will travel aa far around and up the hill of science, as those of like ability who employ the full twenty days at the work. It is because attendance or non-attendance is mainly tho work of parents that we thuB call attention to an all-important element of our school system. ESTRAY HOTICE.
