Governor Boyd honored the requisi-1
tion of Governor Rosweli P. Fiower j
of New York for tho arrest of Richard
Gardner, who is accused by the Em
pire state authorities of the crime of
escaping from the state penitentiary,
where he was imprisoned upon tho
charge of highway robbery. Gardner
was anested at Omaha on November
10 for burglary. Chief Sevay recog
nized him as the man who had escaped
from the New York penitentiary, and
so notified the sheriff of Rochester.
Although the Omaha .authorities had
a good case against the prisoner, they
consented to turn him over to the New

The state land oflice is a busy place,
says tho Lincoln Journal. Yesterday
the whole force of Commissioner
Humphrey's clerks was engaged in
preparing the matter for the biennial
report of the commissioner of public
lands and buildings. As the business
of the oflice has been greater during
the past two years than ever before,
the amount of labor in getting up the
report is correspondingly greater, and
in consequence this work is begun sev
eral weeks earlier than usual. Much
of the new business in the office has
been occasioned by the placing on the
market 64. COO aires of school iand
which had never previously been of
fered for sale or lease, these lands
being situated in Grant it McPherson
The B & M. switching yards were
the scene of another deplorable acci
dent, says a Lincoln dispatch, that
may result in the death of an old and
trusted employe. Wiliiam Oddie, a
:ar inspector who has worked for tho
company for the past seven years, was
the victim. He was engaged in exam
ining a defective drawbar on a "bad
order" car on one of the tracks in the
west side of the yards and had crawled
under tho car for the purpose. AS' the
same time tho regular switching'crew
were engaged in makingup a westbound
freight train. They were unaware of
Oddie's prosence under tho car and
backed down on it with considerable
force. Tho unfortunate man was
caught and rolled over and over along
the ground for a distance of about
three car lengths. Ho was badly hurt
and the probabilities aro that he can
Amended by-laws of tho Yankton,
Norfolk & Southwestern railroad wero
fiicd with the secretary of state last
week. This company was first incor
porated by Dakota capitalists under
the laws of the state of Nebraska, on
November 13, 1888. Tho following
men were back of the enterprise: J.
II. Tilier, J. T. M. Percy. John Cren
nan, W. H. Beaddio and E H. Van
Antwerp. Originally the company had
a capital stock of $250,000, but as the
needs of the company enlarged the
capital was increased accordingly un
til on the 1st day of February, 1889,
it amounted to $2,000,000. The road
was projected to run from a point on
the right bank of the Missouri river in !
Cedar county, Nebraska, opposite the
city of Yankton, S. D., through the
counties of Cedar, Knox Pierce and
Madison to the city of Norfolk.
Detective Haze left Omaha last week
for Duiuth, Minn., where ho has lo
cated Jefferson D. Harrison, wanted
on the charge of embezzlement. Har
rison was for a period of ten years the
trusted agent and book-keeper of the
Fairbanks-Morse Safe and Scale com
pany. He was entrusted for nino years
with the sole charge of the business at
St. Louis, and when the Omaha branch
was established three years ago, he
was given the management of affairs.
It was during his time as manager at
St, Louis that Mr. Harrison began to
rob the company of amounts ranging
from the price of an ordinary scale to
a valuable safe worth several thousand
dollars. He married the daughter of a
wealthy St. Louis man and located in
Omaha. His expensive style and lux
urious manner attracted the attention
of the officers of the company and an
expert was sent to examine his ac
counts. Lincoln dispatch: Hattie Meek, the
girl who shot herself at a disreputa
ble house of which ner mother is the
proprietress, is very low this after
noon, with the chance much against
her recovery. Fuller particulars of
the rash act are obtainable today. It
seems that yesterday the girl went up
town and, after visiting several places,
stepped into a local hardware store
and purchased a small American bull
dog revolver. She had the cleric load
the weapon. After she returned home
she appeared as lively as usual and
her mother noticed nothing strange in
her conduct. After some littie time
she went to her room and a few mo
ments later the shot was fired. The
injured girl is 18 years old. Her story
is the old. old story, and differs not
from the story of hundreds of others.
She was pure for a time in spite of her
suroundings, hut the seducer came and
a life of shame was the result. It is
believed that she became despondent
over her situation.
Lincoln dispatch: If the voters of
Lancaster county have an opportunity
to, vote next Tuesday it will be by an
extraordinary piece of good luck. Yes
terday several independent leaders
discovered what appeared to them to
be serious objections to the ballots
printed for the county by the State
Journal company. In several in
stances the words "people's independ
ent" in type just one-half the size of
the type used in designatingthe repub
lican and democratic candidates. Other
errors were pointed out. The county
clerk stated that he believed the bal
lots were perfectly legal. In order to
bring the matter to a test Mart Howe,
one of the candidates on the people's
independent ticket, applied for a man
damus to compel the count clerk to
have the tickets reprinted. The case
was heard before Judge Tuttie this
morning, and after listening to the
arguments the court issued a peremp
tory mandamus compelling the clerk
to have the ballots reprinted. There
are 70', 000 ballots.

New Yokk. Nov. 9. The Sun extra
says that Cleveland has carried tho
solid south, Connecticut by 4, 000 or
more. New York 6tate 44,000, New
Jersey by 8,000, Delaware by over
1.00D. Indiana by 5.000, Illinois by
10.000, Wisconsin by 10.000; that
Weaver has carried Colorado, Idaho,
Nevada and probably South Dakota.
The Sun also claims the house to be
more than 100 democratic. The New
York legislature is democratic, insur
ing a democratic successor td Hiscock.
The democrats carry every congres
sional district south of the Harlem,
although the republicans gain three in
the entire state. The democratic
landslido extended to the assembly.
The majority in the lower house is so
large that a democrat will succeed
Frank Hiscock in the United States
senate. Thus for tho first time in
many years New York will have two
democratic senators in the higher
branch of congress.
Chicago, Nov. 10. The returns
from Illinois are still incomplete this
morning, but all indications point to
the Carrying of the state by Cleveland
and Stevenson by a plurality of from
8. 000 to 10. 000. The entire democrat
ic state ticket is also elected and tho
democrats have a majority of the con
gressional delegation, and have appa
rently gained control of both branches
of the slate legislature.
Coi-rMBUS, Nov. 10 The incations
at 10 o'clock are that Ohio has gone
democratic for the first time in a pres
idential year, though it may require
the official count to determine the re
sult. Columbus, O., Nov. 11. The re

Complete returns havo been received
on governor from thirty-three coun
ties which show:Crounse 39, ISO; Mor

incomplete returns from eleven other
counties the indications are that
Crounse is elected by from 10.000 to
12. 000 plurality over Van Wyck.
Complete returns have been received
by the Bee from thirty-four counties
on president, which show a plurality
for Harrison of 5,422, and incomplete
returns from ten other counties in
crease that plurality to nearly 7,000.
Reports from the Third district show
Mikiejohn has a safe plurality.
Nothing less than the official count
will satisfy the claims of the rival po
litical hoadquarters as to the real
name of the next congressman from
the First district. At republican head
quarters at 10 o'clock tonight Chair

Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 10. Tho re
suit of the election for congressman in
Lancaster county is as much in doubt
as it was last evening. Both parties
claim the election and both base their
claims on the results in this county.
Field ciaims the county by a plurality
of 426, while Bryan asserts that his
opponent has but 291 in the county.
At the republican headquarters it is
claimed that the district will give
F'ield a small plurality.

Harrison of 6. 533, and incomplete re

plurality over Van Wyck.
Indianapolis, Nov. 10. At demo
cratic headquarters the state is claimed
by 10,000 on tho state ticket and S.000
on the electoral ticket. At republican
headquarters tho state is still claimed,
hut not with so much show of confi
dence. The best information obtainable in
dicates that the democrats have elected
ten out of thirteen of the members ot
congress, a gain of one. and that the
legislature is republican in both
Indianapolis. Ind., Nov. 11. Re
turns from all over the state are com
ing in very slow. The unofficial re
turns from fifty-five counties show a
steady democratic gain on the vote of
188S. Cleveland's majority in the
state, it is conceded by the republi
cans, will be not less than 5. 000, and
probably more. This county (Marion)
is solidly democratic by from 1, 000 to
1,100. The congressional delegation
will be democratic by a good majority,
although two districts, the First and
Tenth, are still in doubt.
Detroit, Nov. 10. The republi

follows: Senate, rep. 17, dem and ind

mittee claim that Weaver and Cleve
land carry the state by from S, D00 to
10.0Q0. Tile republican state Central
committee admits the defeat of Bruco
for auditor, but claims the election of
Smith. Conservative estimates are
that the republican state and electoral
tickets are defeated and not more than
three congressmen have been elected
by that party. The full returns shown
that the legislature wiil stand thus:
In tho senate. 17 republicans, 23 pop

Trenton N. J., Nov. 9. The indi
cations to-night are that Cleveland ha3
carried the state of New Jersey by
7, 500. and that Werts, dem, for gov
ernor, has been elected by a plurality
of 4,000. The next legislature will
stand as follows: Senate, republicans
4; democrats 17; house, deinocrats 50-,
Returns still continue to come in
very slowly, but there is no longer
any question that Harrison has car
ried Iowa by a strong plurality, and it
may go as high as 20.000. A careful
computation of the vote received from
thirty counties, out of ninety-nine,
show that Harrison's total vote will
reach 226,000, Cleveland's 203.000.

figures place the total republican vote

several counties, but cannot be far
from correct, as of the eleven counties
ten are surely republican, though the
eleventh district is still claimed by the
democrats, but merely as a possibility.
San Francisco. Nov. 10. Accord
ing to returns counted in this city
thus far. Cleveland will have a plural
ity of about 7,000. Returns are too
meagro to say with positiveness which
electoral ticket has carried the state,
but indications are that Cleveland's
plurality in this city wiil be overcome
by Harrison's plurality in other parts
of the state, and that the latter will
carry the 6tate by a plurality consid
erably iess than that of four years ago.
Weaver's vote wa3 somewhat larger
than estimated by the managers of po
litical parties and cut into tho repub
lican vote in some counties much heav
ier than it did into the democratic
vote. The legislature is still in doubt
but 'will probably be republican on
San Francisco, Nov. 11. Complete
returns from San Francisco and about
three-fifths of the rest of tho state give
Cleveland 99.738. Harrison, 97.368,
Weaver 17.305. The democrats elect
four congressmen, the republicans
probably two, with one in doubt.

Cloveiand and Peck are elected by
The Sentinel's figures by counties,
partly estimated sixty-threo counties
out of sixty-eight give net demo

ties still to hear from are likely to
increase this a few hundred, but also
estimates are liable to many changes.
Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 11. Re
turns to noon show a democratic plu
rality in the state of fully 5. 000. Four
congressmen are republican and six
democratic. The legislature is demo
cratic on joint ballot by twenty-nine.
The Sentinel returns, with parts of
twenty out of twenty-eight counties es
timated, give the democrats a plurality
on governor of 4,748. Tho figure

judge, and thinks Clark for congress
will pull through with 200 majority.
Claims legislature on joint ballot and
Harrison electors by 500 majority.
Bismxrck, N. D.. Nov. 11. Returns
from twenty leading counties, almost
completed, knock out the previous re
publican estimates, and it is now cer
tain that the entire republican state
ticket is defeated by majorities of 300
to 1,000. It is believed that the Har
rison electors are also defeated, but
Johnson, republican, for cogress, may
pull through. The legislature is in
doubt, but is probably republican by
four or five majority.
Denver. Col., Nov. 10. Returns
oniy tend to show up the populist ma
jority, which wiil be anywhere from
5.000 to 7.000. The populists will
have control of the lower house of the
legislature and probably of the senate.
Hartford, Conn., Nov. 9. The
vote in this state, with one town miss

attributed to him. His colleague was
attributed different qualities which
appealed to another class.
We are the victims of an extraor
dinary defeat I think the democratic
leaders are as much astonished as we
are. There ia no doubt that the pri
mary cause of the result is that a cer
tain part of the country wanted a
change of policy, so far as protection
is concerned. We have had a high
protective tariff for thirty years. When
Cleveland was elected eight years ago
it was simply a desire among the
American people for a change. Mr.
Cleveland attempted no change until
hi3 last year he sent in a message to
congress calling for a reversal of the
protective policy. The people became
alarmed and Cleveland was defeated
when he sought re-election. Now, in
the four years of president Harrison's
administration we have had a cam
paign of education from the stump
all over the country, from tho press,
scattered broadcast in millions of pam
phlets call the argument that protec
tion was for the benefit of the few and
to the detriment of the many; that the
rich were the natural enemies of the
poor; that the people of the
United States were becoming divided
into two classes princes and paupers.
The masses of the people were con
vinced that they had to pay dearly for
what they might have got cheaply if
it were not for protection. The arti
sans were appealed to that they did
not get a fair share of the profits tho
manufacturers derived from prstec
tion. A prominent manufacturer told
me today that every one of his em
ployes voted the democratic ticket
I know another big factory in West
chester county, which only exists be
cause of the high tariff and whose
thousand odd employes get double the
wages they would otherwise where all
the operatives voted democratic Now
with both classes against us. those who
derived direct benefit from the high
tariff and those who wanted to buy
more cheaply and thought they could
by letting down the tariff walis. you
know what became of us. The verdict
of the people is a direct instruction to
the government of the country to re
peal tho McKinley bill and to main
tain tariff for revenue only. Will the
democratic party have the courage to
carry out these instructions? I pre
dict that tney will not stand on a sin
gle plank of their Chicago platform,
if they do we will see a financial dis
turbance and an industrial revolution
such as has not been seen in this coun
try since 1857,
A large number of bills will be in
troduced into the next house bearing
on reduction in the tariff, and not one
of them will be passed. The duties
on pearl buttons and tin plate will be
repealed, and they wiil stop there.
President Harrison's Work.
Washington. Nov. 12. President
Harrison is again at work in the tread
mill. He began writing his annual
message yesterday. He had put off
this laborious work much longer than
usual in order to secure the light of
the national election. If he had se
cured success his message would of
course have been a state paper of con
siderable importance bearing on the
development of the McKinley tariff,
but in view of the success of Mr.
Cleveland there will be little for the
president to say on the question which
has hitherto been regarded as the
cardinal principle of the party. Mr.
Halford said this afternoon that the
message would be very short The
president already has before him the
reports of bis various cabinet asso
ciates, and the message to a consider
able extent wiil. be a digest of the rou
tine and statistical work of the depart
ments. At Cleveland's Home.
New York, Nov. 11 Cheerfulness
pervaded the home of President-elect !
Cleveland yesterday, though tho,
weather without was cheerless in the '
extreme. The apartments in which
the past and future mistress of the
white house rules supreme were redo
lent with the odor of flowers, all gifts
of the successful candidate's admiring
friends. Messenger boys bearing tel
egrams of congratulation kept the
door bell ringing almost continuously.
Mr. William C. Whitney. Colonel Dan-
iei Lamont George F. Parker and
Robert L. O'Brien were with the president-elect
for several hours in the
morning and he denied himself to all
other callers. i

Columbus, O.. Nov. 12. At mid

pleted its table, with all the counties
heard from with the exception of our,
and these are estimated. Some cor
rections were received at a late hour
from Hamilton and Cuyahoga couatii
which will raiso the reported plurality
of Taylor, republican for secretary of
Statd, to 785, and the table shows the
Harrison electors to hate been elected
by 787 plurality. Tho commiltfle, how

on the part Of voters who placed tho

claim tho election of Seward, Curtain,
and possibly the whole number.
At Mork on Ills .tleevage.
Washington. D. C, Nov. 1?. The
president has begun the preparation
of his annual message to congress on
the state of the country. The three
weeks left to him for its consideration
will undoubtedly prove more than '
enough time for the purpose. It is ex
tremely improbable that he will de
vote much space to tho questions
which have made up tho policy of the
present administration. The message
wiil therefore be shorter and less sig
nificant than usual, and will probably
contain nothing beyond a review of
the work of the administration during
the past year, and a brief recitation of
the president's well known views on
the political issues of the day.
