One hundred and eighty towns have
yet to report. These are remote vil
lages and plantations throwing small
votes. Some of the fusion
towns heard from shovr eomu
amall republican gains , The
returns eo far received are not suffi
cient to give the. exact standing of
both branches of the legislature.
Enough have been reported to insure
a republican majority in both houses ,
probably six in the senate and twenty-
nine iu the house , unless the towns to
bo heard from make decided gains or
either vide cannot be decided winner
at the official count. The returns re
ceived are necessarily subject to some
correction. The legislative committee
and state officials' tabulations may
differ sufficiently to change the result ,
so close arc the returns. It Is therefore - i
fore premature to predict the result
even at this hour. .

POKTLAMD , Me. ) September 16 , 3 a.
m. The most reliable information in
dicates very small republican gaini in
four of the thirty-two towns In Knox
and Oxford counties , but little is Tot
known from Aroostook oJUlity , upon
which hangs the result , and the gains
predicted by the fusionists , A few
towns from Aroostook show no sJjn |
from last year's count. There still re
mains ninety towns , mostly from
Aroostook , to hear from , and should
they follow in line with those report
ed , it will leave a fusion majority of
309. Thcso are tbe facts as near as
can bo learned from the most reliable
sources , and no further returns are
looked for until late to-day. Outside
of this anything advanced as news ii
pure speculation. Heed , republican
congressman , Firat district , has a ma
jority of 147 ; Fryo , republican ,
Second , has 1,500 majority ; Lindsy ,
republican , Third , 500 to 700 major
ity ; Lidd , greenback , Fourth , 1,500
majority ; and .Jlurcb , greenback , tf'ifth ,
800 majority. The houno is republi
can by nineteen majority and the
senate stands twenty republicans to
eleven fusionists and perhaps one bet
ter , for the chances are that S. S.
Brown , of Garcelon's council , who
ran for senator in Somerset , is defeat
ed. The republicans claim that if vic
tory there bo for the antis , it is a
greenback victory , and if the democrats >
crats can stand it they ought to. Be
fore joining the greeubackorsPlaisted ,
the fusion candidate for governor , was
the most radical of republicans ; no
one man was so bitter against demo
crats in the state of Maine as he.

WASHINGTON , September 1C , 1 a. m.
The following teas sent from the
headquarters of the national commit
tee of the national greenback labor
party to Senator Wallace , chairman of j
the democratic congressional commit
tee : "In behalf of the n tional grecn-
back-labor party , permit me to express !
my gratification at tha unsolicited and | _
magnanimous act of the democrats oi "
this city in celebrating the victory
which our party gained over the hard
money oligarchy of the state of Maine ,
and to nuy that it should ever remain
engraved on our memories as one of
the most gracious acts of the gallant
but unfortunately retiring democratic
party. "
Gen. Plaisted , in an interview last
evening , said : "I am confident of
having at least 2,000 majority over all.
Aroostook count > alone will give me
from 1,000 to 1,5CO majority. I re
gard the result a glorious triumph for
the plain people. While I was always
confident of victory by a small major
ity , at least , I did not expect such &
magnificent victory as wo have ob
tained. We have received congratu
lations from all parts of the country.
I consider the contest the hardest over
fought in this state. "
In regard to the future of the two
parties , Gen. Plaisted declined to be
interviewed , but said he had always
considered that union and victory In
September meant union and victory in

The republican state convention met

m. The nomination of Kallocli by
the Ward presidents of the working-
men's party is aiarcely considered a
newa item. No election has been or
dered and none likely to bo. A proc
lamation will not be issued by Kallach
unless rtrdered by the supreme court ,
and ii ft itnderatood that the court
will hold that the present officials
continue in office till next year. Dem
ocratic manipulators have cQuctoJ a
eoit of fusion with the Kalloch branch
of the workingrnon to divide up the
offices and put a joint ticket in the
field , in case of an election , or perhaps
whether there i a proclamation or
ntit , anil take the slim chance of a de
cision iii their ftVorby the supreme
court after the election.
The republicans will not call a con
vention to nominate citv officers , but
if obliged to put a ticket in the field [ '
to prevent the election going by de
fault , will renominate the republicans
tit present holding office and have the
county committee select candidates
for the other offices.
The Kearney branch of the work-
inumen will be governed by the action

Kalloch says that the nomination
before was equivalent to election and
the nomination now is paramount to
election. Tint it was siid that ho was
shot into office before , but somebody
else has been shot since. ,
Election Commiesioner Tillson , in
the meeting yesterday , charged that
there was a plan on foot , by Kalloch
aud his colleagues , to pu ( live thou-
scnd fraudulent names on the poll
lists. Kalloch and Dunn denounced
the charge as an infamous calumny.

WORCESTER , September 1C , 1 a. m.
The republican state convention as
sembled at Mechanics' hall &tvll
o'clock yesterday. About one thou
sand delegates were present. The
convention was called to order by
Hon. E. F. Stone , who was chosen
temporary chairman. Ho alluded to
the unwelcome nowa from Maine ,
'but , " said he , "it did not discourage
but only served to move anew the
party for a vigorous fight. "
Hon. Paul A. Chedbourne , president -
dent of Williams college , was chosen
permanent chairman the conven
tion aud proceeded to deliver hia ad
dress. President Chadbournc said
the mission of the republican party
was to secure for the people -of the
whole country the blessings which
Massachusetts enjoys. The voice of
his state must strive with all earnestness -
ness to sustain the national suprema
cy of the republican parly the party
whose glorious past , present and fu
ture was represented by Abraham
Lincoln , II. B. Hayes and Jas. A.
Garfield. [ Loud applause. ] The history -
tory and'present composition of the
two parties were next contrasted. The
democratic party ehould be judged by
the acts of the democratic congress.
The republican party is the first polit
ical which has tr
party successfully car
ried out the principles of the declara
tion of independence the personal
freedom and absolute equality of all
man before the law. It has settled
forever that this government is a Na
tion , never to be dissolved. It de
sires to dissipate forever all traces of
Boetlonal feeling. It has sustained
tbe credit of the country , reduced the
interest bearing debt nearly § 500,000-
000.- restored the country to a specie
basis and brought the
country to i a
time of and
peace unexcelled prosper

To give the government to the demo
cratic party a to give it to those men
who , fifteen yean ago , were fighting

Another reason was thb free use of

Ttlden alone contributed § 20,000 to
defeat Heed for congress in the First

gained in consequence.
The question to be settled now is
whether the greenbackers and demo-

The Solon Chase wine of the green

Chicago Citizens Turn in and
Destroy a Railway Ex
p'cial Plaiialch to The Bee.
CHICAGO , September 1C 1 a. m.
By a recent court decision the Wes
tern Indiana railroad is granted the
right of way into this city to Van Bur-
en strcot. Tuesday night the Illinois
Central company placed a string of lo
comotives on their track at Sixteenth
and Clark streets whcra it was cxpect-
ed the Western Indiana would under-
take to eroes with their track laying
doting the night. Trouble was antici
pated aud a gu : > ; of police was on
hand. The track layers managed to
unhitch and icmovo the locomotivej.
One of thu engineers , Peter Whalen ,
beins enraged , t * > rew the throttle open
and attempted to run down the eaug
of workmen , which he would have
dune had not the police aticcoedod in
stopping the engine and saving their
lives. Whalon was arrested and fined
§ 100.
Open hostilities between the Wes
tern Indiana railway and the city au -
thorities were begun Init evening. 1I 1i
The railway people , apprehending in
terference on the part of the city in
laying its tracks aoroas the streets
from Twelfth to Van Buren , it ap >
plied to thu court for an injunction re
straining such interference by the
people , but a counter application for )
writ to restrain the railway lo
from proceeding with track laying is
mads. The railway obtained a United
Staiea wtit but the city did not.
Thu railway men then mEguanimously
invited the city authorities to attend
the track laying and see that it was
done right. Superintendent of-stroet t ?
Fogarty was on hand last night , but
Biid ho did not know whether the
work was being properly done or not.
He asked that it ba stopped till a
more seasonable time , when the city
engineer could bo present. The company
pany declined to wiit and went ahead
with the work. Thereupon Fogarty |
called upon the police and citizens in
the vicinity to prevent further work.
A scoiio of riot immediately followed.
It is not said J.a
whether anyone was injured -
jured , but the citizens completely
overpowered the workmen , piled up
the railroad ties and burned them ,
placed raila iu the fire and bent or
broke tliam , All the track that had
been hid was torn up and the materi :
al , as far as possible , destroyed.
Work was completely stopped for the
night and the laborers dispersed.
What the next rnovo will bo remains
to be seen. The railway company
will probably sue the city for damages.

1'he ' police who were on duty Tues

movements of three men , who wore

which were found to contain six hun-
flred weight of gunpowder packed in
canisters. The most searching ques-
' tufna failed to elicit from the men any
further account of themselves , and
they wove held for judicial cxaniina-
ation. It is believed by sotnu that tbe

about carrying out some infernal
scheme ! , either to blow up a pirt of

The affair has created much excite

no efforts to ferret out the facts. The
prisoners were arraigned in the police
court and Fernandez continued to
stick to his story that the powder was
for sale on the Spanish coast. The
others said nothing , Furnandtz stating
that they were iu his employ and
know nothing of the nature of what
