Tjie democracy are really alarmed over
the situation in West Virginia, and cer

The tariff, reciprocity and honest money
policies of the republican party are
doing their work.
The New York Pres3 iB pretty good
on cartoons. Picture a small boat, but
large enough to hold Grover Cleveland,
the Free Trade boat at anchor in Buz
zards Bay, Grover anxiously looking
over tho side at sword fish ( D. B. H. )
that has pierced a hole through tho side
of tho boat, big enough for a big leak.
Tho sword is labeled "Peck'fl Report,"
and that samo has given the democratic
national committee much anxious
At San Francisco tho other day a
man took too much chloroform with his
whiskey, and did'nt come down stairs
tho next day. A doctor was called and
and turned the man upside down, and
ho was restored to consciousness in a
little while, tho doctor's theory being
that chloroform poisons by producing
anemia in tho brain, in plain English by
driving the blood out of the head, so to
contract this, let the blood in the feet,
lega and body flow down into t he brain.
Amovo the latest sensations from
New York is that one J. U. Moore had
committed snicido in accord with tho
rules of a Hub of which ho was a member,
iuHof the conditions being that each
member, on joining, is compelled to fiv.
the dato at which they are to take thoir
own life. By a special request of tho
club, it seems that he was offered a
parole of ton yars but, he refused to ac
cept it, and before killing himself wrote
a letter to the coroner of Now York:
"Sir I havo committed suicide as per
club. PIcasu give verdict to such effect
and oblige."
Senator Paddock has returned to
his home at Beatrice. Ho says that ho
spent several hours at republican head
quarters, New York city, on his way, and
he is satisfied that not only will New
York state bo for Harrison, but that a
republican house will be elected in No
veinlier. As to New York he gives these
reasons: "The party organizations are
very strong there. Ex-Senator Piatt is
working liko a Trojan for President Har
rison. So is ex-Senator Warner Miller.
The Hill support of Cleveland is merely
perfunctory, and the impression among
the best informed republicans of that
state is that there is very little sincerity
in Tammany's protestations of loyally to
Cleveland. " In fact there is but very lit
tle doubt but that we shall carry New
York easily."
PiiATTE county farmers are interes

during tho administration of President
Harrison, to further their business, one
of the principal branches of which is
that of raising hogs lor tho market. An

A Sample Coin.
Every indignity offered General
Weavor in the south will be used by the
northern republican machines to inten
sify sectional feelings and hold tho un
thinking class in line with that party."
The above is a sample paragraph from
the Argus of this city, and it is about its
usual conception of things. "To inten
sify sectional feelings!" Ever patriot
recognizes the fact and always has recog
nized it that when a community will
not listen to argument; when it assails
a political opponent with stones and
stale eggs instead of cogent and honest
reasons for opposition; when it intim
idates and bull-dozes; when it brow
beats, and stuffs ballots; when it does
not hesitate to kill its political opponents
to get them out of tho waythere is
something very radically wrong, whether
such things occnr in Georgia or in any
other democratic or other party region
north, south, east or west, and so far
as republicans are concerned, they
believe with that old-fashioned demo
crat, Thomas Jefferson, that Truth
should be free to combat Error, and tho
party will not be satisfied until every
man in the United States who lias a
legal right to vot shall bo perfectly
free in casting his ballot as he wishes,
and have it counted as he casts it.
When this shall be tho rnle, the egg
throwing incidents will be reduced to
a minimum. There ought, to Ik con
siderable more intensity of feeling
everywhere on this subject than there
is. Weaver is entitled to as respectful
treatment as Harrison or Cleveland- it
in not a matter of persons or parties
at all. it in a matter of right to Ameri
can citizens, and one of the first steps in
its accomplishment is an impartial,
though national election law that will
put. the hoodlum element so completely
under cow that it will find no alterna
tive but submission to the will of right
minded citizens.
--Hold the unthinking class in line
with that party." Just read that again,
yo republicans who have been thinking
all your lifetime; read it again, ye re
publicans who indorse the spirit of Gov
ernor Cronnse's utterance the other day
when ho said he desired only the votes of
honest men; read it again,ye republicans,
and see the utter depth of meanness
which lies back of the remark.
Dun's Review Says That All Brancuea
or Trade Are Dolus Well.
New Yor.K,Oct-10. It. G. Dun & Co.,
in the weekly review of trade say.
'The first week of October shows
more activity in spite of the near ap
proach of the Presidential election.
Business is distinctly better at the
South on account of the improvement
in the price of cotton, more active at
the West with improved crop prospects,
and only slightly retarded at the
"Trade at Boston is somewhat nar
rower as the election approaches.
Cotton goods arc decidedly firm and
wool stcadj- in price, with holders con
fident. "Chicago reports a large trade in
merchandise and good collections, with
bank clearings 14 per cent larger than
a year ago, and decided increase in
real estate and lumber transactions.
Receipts of cattle, hogs and sheep are
slightly larger than a year ago, but
receipts of Hour, barley, cheese, hides
and dressed beef are double last year's
decrease, being noted only in seeds,
lard, wool and rye.
"The business failures occurring
throughout the country during the last
seven days number 220 as compared
with totals cf 203 last week. For the
corresponding week of last year the
figures were 270."
Secretary of State Foster Pretest to
Represent the 1'resldeat.
Wobujin, Mass., Oct 10 It is out
lined that 20,000 strangers attended
the quarter millenial celebration. The
weather is all that could be desired
and the big procession, the feature of
the forenoon, was a pronounced suc
cess. The climax of the great celebra
tion came in the banquet in the ar
mory iu the eveniug.
Ex-Mayor Johnson performed the
duties of toastmaster in a most grace
ful manner. In his introductory ad
dress he called attention to the fact
that three Presidents of the United
States Franklin Pierce, Grover Cleve
land and Benjamin Harrison traced
their ancestry to families now or
formerly residing in Woburn.
The first toast was "The President of
the United States," and after a brief
letter of regret had been read from
President Harrison his representative,
in the person of the Hon. John W.
Foster, Serve tary of State, was pre
sented and given a reception that must
have stirred his heart witn delight.

believe tl to have been caught by the
furious storm off Stannard Kock, have

BuDA-PESTH,Oct. 10. The cholera is
increasing daily in this city. ' During
the last ten days there have bean 259
new canes and 104 deaths. The trade
of the city is seriously affected. Coun
try merchants refuse to buy goods at
Buda-Pesth, fearing infection, and
business in all lines is stagnant. Bail
way traffic is almost suspended. The
police, in their auxiety to stamp
out the disease, are enforc
ing severe measures. The fumi
gation of dwellings is resented by the
ignorant populace, and numerous con
flirts between the oftlcers and the citi
zens have occurred. Last evening the
occupants of a large tenement house
drove back the disinfecting squud of
police by pouring boiling water upon
them from the windows. Several of
tho officers were so badly scalded that
they had to be removed to a hospital.

Kansas Again Raided by Grasshoppers.
Kansas City, Mo.. Oct. 10. Myriads
of grasshoppers have appeared in
Buchanan aud adjoining counties and
are rapidly destroying the winter
wheat. The hoppers arc of the variety
that appeared in 1S71, but are the com
mon field grasshopper that stays in

warm, dry weather has hatched them
out by the millions, and unless a cold
rain or frost comes immense damage
will be done.

Merrill put in an, appearance from Chi

brethren into this conference: J. W.
Phelps, John Williams, I. B. Hilton, N.
W. Devcan, Myron W. Marsh, A. S.
Mason and James Mailcy.
President Henry Wade Rogers of the
Northwestern university was intro
duced to the conference and spoke of
the great school at Evanston. He said

2,550 students. A new library will
soon be erected, to cost 3100,000. A
polytechnic school is also soon to lie
erected. He declared this university the
best located of any school in Method
ism. The authorities want to establish
' a professorship of religion and, said
President Bogers, "We must have a
chapel. We have uever appealed to
Methodism, but now we are going to
make that appct'. Property has come
. into the hands of the trustees, not by
donations from Methodists, but from
' the rise of property secured in an early
j date in Chicago Dr. Rogers made a
favor of the Evanston schoo'.

its business very rapidly and from ap-
J pearances will be ready to adjourn
, sometime on Monday. The roll was
called of candidates for orders and they
j were approved in studies and work, and

address was offered. Nothing special
has been heard from the Cabinet, but
it is understood a great many changes
will be made. Several transfers have
been made, but nothing definite is
known. The reports of committees

Unfavorable l:e3n.:. .f Its Conditlou
Ctmiiix In.
Housiox, Texas, Oct. i0. The heavy
rains did considerable damage to the
cotton crop, beating out a good ileal
and in iiumiv liclds discoloring the
staple. Planters rcrort the crop cut
down from one-fourth to one-third of a
bale from what was expected.
Dknisox, Texas, Oct. 10. There has
been no rain here iu six weeks ami
summer heat Las prevailed. The in
tense heat is drying up the cotton bolls
before they mature. Every day of the
present weather is cutting short the
cotton crop.
Charleston, S.C., Oct. 10 The last
week has been favorable for harvest
ing in the cotton fields, but the dam
age apjicars to have l.ecn done already
in the Pcdee section in the State. It
is safe to say that the falling off iu the
crop will be at least 40 per cent com
pared with last year's figures. This is
the estimate of experts who have been
over the ground. The advices from
the Piedmont sectiou make the falling
off nltont 30 per cent.
Child Fatally Burned and Others In
jured la a Xeir York Tenement.
New York, Oct. 10. The fhe-story
"double-decker" tenement, 100 Suf
folk street, was the scene of an excit
ing fire early this morning. The ten
ants, aroused from their slumbers by
the cry that the house was on lire, be
came panic stricken. There were some
narrow escapes. A woman and two
children were badly burned and a
young servant girl in the
hbnse was .lightly burned. The
injured are Mr?. Kachuel Levine, 28
yeara old, burned about the head, face,
and upper part of bodj'; Sarah Levine,
3 years old, burned on body, head, and
arms; cEsther Levine, 3 months old,
burned about the head and face; Sabine
Steinlof, 16 years old. slightly burned
on the face. Little Sarah will prob
ably die. The house was occupied by
fifteen families. The outbreak was
caused by the upsetting of an oil stove,
and the fire did only about 83,000
damage to the furniture and building.
A Divorce Suit Leaves One nt the Par
ties in a Doubtful Position.
Peoria, 111.. Got. 10. Developments
in a divorce ease here reveal a queer
mistake of facts aud the lawyers arc
undecided as to the proper standing of
one of the parties. Mrs. Francis
Whitaker, wife of Kobert Whi taker, a
wealthy farmer, eloped with the hired
man and divorce proceedings were be
gun. The trial resulted in judgment for
the complainant, Robert Whitaker, but
a divorce was never signed. The wife
returned toher husband and all thought
that the matter had terminated satis
factorily. It seems that Mrs. Whitaker
was secretly married to the hired man
immediately after the first divorce pro
ceedings. Yesterday a decree was
signed by Judge Worthington and it is
a question whether Mrs. Whitaker that
was is a bigamist or not. Matters will
be allowed to remain as they are and
no attempt at prosecution for bigamy
will be begun.
A Decision of the Courts Brings For
tune to the Woods anil Their Attorney.
Denver, Col., Oct. 10. l'he United
States Court of Appeals has denied the
petition for a rehearing in the case of
the Wood heirs against Jerome B.
Wheeler. The court had rendered a
decision giving the Wood heirs a onc
thlrd interest iu the Emma mine at
Aspen, together with a like proportion
of the product of the mine for the past
seven years.
F. A. Green, the attorney for the
Woods, will receive probably the larg
est single fee ever earned by a lawyer
in the country. He gets over a million
in money and a large interest in the
minc,for which a syndicate once offered
817,5000. Every one of the Woods heirs
is made independently rich by the de
cision. Killing the Last Buffaloes.
Denver, Oct. 10. Gordon Land, State
game warden, who has been with one
of the parties which are in pursuit of
hunters who have been killing buffalo
in Lost Park, has returned. He re
ported that about half of the herd of
thirty buffaloes have been killed and
the hunters have not yet been captured.
He says the punishment provided by
the law for killing these animals is so
very lenient that tlie settlers have de
termined to take the matter in- their
own hands, and swear that they will
kill the hunters if they capture them.
