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
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
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
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
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.

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.

Fer Cist, of
Atteadaace at School.
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.
