NEW YOUK , November 17 , 1 a. m.
Tlie grand jury will to-day Hear the
cvidcDCQ iu the case of Konward
Philp , who was held to await their ac
tion by Justice Noah Davis on the
charge o ! criminal libel Subpoenas
for witnesses were issued yesterday
and to-day , and moat of them have
been served , but it is underotocd thol
considerable evidence will be offered
that was uot nubniitted in the court
room at the examination. The grand
jury convened at 11 o'clock yestsrday
morning and 6t until 1 o'clock , when
a number of indictments in minor
criminal cases , were prciontcd. It ap
pears from the statement of Assistant
District Attorney Bell that no attempt
is being made by the prosecuting attor
ney to secure evidence against aiy of
the persons aa yet involved iu the
case , and beyond facts alrsady ascer
tained nothing will be presented to
the consideration of the jury. Tlu

A'T. Fny , in consultation at the
eherifFs oflioo : aaid that ho was willing
to qualify as builds/nan , and would
probibly do so , was annoyed at
the tenements th\ ; appear 'd in some
c ! the morning papers tu Iho
ffcct toil he had al-eady
qualified , that being aa ho termed it
on Auumption of fsct ; he said that
before be qualified ho desired to see

dictment is found. It is interesting
to know -before whom Mr. Philp will
bo tried. It is understood that the
trial will ba pushed forward as soon
as possible , nlthouqh the district at
torney will have hh hands full for the
next month tocome. . No little
excitement was raised around
tfco court house by rumore pro
eentod in the morning papers to the
effect that Mr. Philp , having ceased [
ilo be in the employ of The Truth ,
tad made revelations to the district
attorney having direct bearing on the
alleged Garfield-Chinosa letter. The
Tumor was generally discredit , and
by those most reliably iufum.uti was
characterized RS absurd.
Judge Davis declined to ha inter >
viewed and said ho had nothing to :

pared his own stati'incnls The re
porter met Mr. Phiip in ttio city hall t
park , and he nude the following
statement ; _ I have had mco this

I went to BOO Mr. Bell with tha special
purpose of talking to htm about my :
Bail. Ono of my bondamou being
engaged on Governor's Island I said
to Mr. Bell that this gentleman was
a stranger to mo and it was quite pos-
alble that I might not be able to se
cure his attendance at the moment I
cskod , therefore , whether I would be :
granted the opportunity to obtain
another bondsman ; and was told that
I would , that is all. The time for

2. The voto-of 2G.h senatorial dis-
irict 'has been canvassed hero to-day ,
ind has developed the bipgeat fr.xud
hat was over enacted outside of Mia-
lissippi. There WHS a paper which
jurported to bo the abstract of the
rotes of Cheyenne county befoto the
qard of canvassers which certified
hat Snyder received in Cheyenne
lounty 853 votes , Crutchcr 22 , and
Ballantine G vctes , making 881 votes ,
foa will see by The Sidney Plain-
lealer an article which is copied by
The Omaha Republican of llth inst. ,
living Snydor'a majority in Choy-
inne county 43G over Ballentino who
eccived G votes- which would make a
ottd of 443 votes tor Snyder. . There
no doubt that this Cheyenne county
ibstract is fraudulent. Through this
raud the certificate has been given to
I. Snyder in this senatorial district
nstead of D. C. JBallentine , who resolved -
solved < a majority of the legal votes.
Ind I suppose the same fraud will be
arried out in the 49th representative
listrict of which Cheyenne connty
'orm a part , and certificate awarded
b P. Carrigan , a democrat , instead of
a. B. Daley , of Red Willow county ,
slip was duly elected , "When the con-
esi is made it will be claimed
hat over 400 of the votes
hat Is counted for Obey-
mno connty was cast in
Sioux-connty , which is , attached to
Dheyenne county for judicial revenue
m'd election purposes , and that Sioux
ounty was really a partition of Chey-
snno county , notwithstanding [ the
fact that the constitution places Sioux
ounty in the twelfth senatorial dis-
rict. Of course the legislature will
insoat Snyder and scat Ballahtlne ,
Dut before that can be accomplished
ho United States Senator will prob-
tbly bo elected , and perhaps by the
rote of this man who obtains his cer
tificate by fraud. Nebraska has no
Ight to point the finger of scorn at
Mississippi , when such frauds are
mac ted with impunity within her
ordera. . * J. B.
P. S. The votes'in ' the district as
ianvassed gave Snyder 1,807 ; Ballen-
ine , 1,389 ; Crutcher , democrat , 781 ;
hrbwing out the fraudulent veto from
Cheyenne connty it would leave Bal-
entine elerted. W J. Connell ,
linton Brfggs and E. Wakely concur
n a written opinion that the vote
ast in Sioux connty could not be
ountcd in this senatorial district.
NOUTII PI.ATTB , Neb. , November
13. I wrolo yon particulars of the
aiivass of the 2Glh senatorial district
yesterday. The vote of the 49hr'p- ; t.
oscutative district was c-tuvassud yes-
.erday at Sidney , and developed a
itato of ( facts which would make a
ifazoo county bulldozer blush.
The contest was between E B.
Daley , of Indianola , Red Willow
ounty , a republican , and D. Garri-
sail , of Sidney , a democrat. Daley
vas fairly elected by 100 majority iu
he district , but it was decreed that
Jarrigan should have the certificate.
The facts as related to me by Judge.
3aley are as follows :
Ho arrived in Sidney the early part
the week to witness the canvass.
Jnon arrival he made enquiry as to
.he number of votca that his oppon *
nt , Carrigan , had received in Choy
nne county , but no one , not even
he clerk , could tell him anything
ibout it In the meantime he found out
.hat emissaries had been sent to the
ither counties in the district to find
jut the exact veto , and canvass was
lebycd until they made the report.
iVhen they had reported the clerk of
Cheyenne connty told Daley that
Cheyenne and Skux ( which latter is
iqtinthe dis'rics ) had given Carrigan'
i20 votes. Daley told the
ilerk th t he bjlieved that
eat him , and thought be
vss beat ; aa ha'eupposed Keith coun-
had cast 100 votes , instead of. 79.
However , he waited for the canvas ? ,
vhlch took , place yesterday , after-
ioon. When'the ' abstracts of the dif
ferent counties were opened , and the
result footed up , Daley was 15 votes
xbead of Carrigan. One of the can-
as crs proposed to throw out Chase
and Hayes counties , but that would
not have changed 'the result enough
to beat Dali-y. The proposition waa
made to throw ou > Bed Willow , which
had glvftn Dalef 400 votes' and Carri
gan nonS , fin tHb-ptetext that the ab
stract had been certified to by the-
deputy instead , of the cjorfc , but one'
of the canvassers said h ? did not
think that Would do. The moifou
then was'madc to sdjonrtl to stlpper.
After supper the canvassers met ,
but the paper that they had fooled up
the vote on wan missing , so they had
to begin over again , and the difFeroDt
eountii * ffer ? sailed orcr again , A-id
when Cheyenne arid SlonX vrcfoeillcd
there was an abstract there certifying
to 540 votes for Carrigni ! . with the
ink on It harJly dry , and the abstract
that had Heen-ojpvaasftt just boforp
supper , certifyingto ; 520 vo'tea for Car"-
rigan in Cheyenne and Sioux coun
ties , waa'gone" , This "changed the reNew -
Now , what are tbo good people
of the state of Nebraska going to do
about ii ? Judge Daley will make a but it ia a contest of the weak
against the strong .13 the power of ti.o
U. P. R. R. will be used to thwart
him , the eamatfitb : D. C. Ballantinc ,

A dfspatch from Candahar to-day saya
that Ameer Abdur Rahmen Khan
pays the troops regularly , and that
quiet and good feeling prevailed.
A cur'onB and somewhat comical
explanation is now givou at the origin
of the report of the Ameer's death
two weeks ago. It seems that the
Aiueur paid a much longer visit than to iho house of a lady to whom
ho is engaged to marry , and his non-
return at the tlmo he specified before
leaving the place , lead some of his offi
cers td report that ho bad been mur-
durcd by emissaries of Ameer Khan.
The explanation , when first made ,
cr.usod much merriment.
Severe gales and Hoods are reported
from the highland counties and on
the west coast of England. Storm
bulletins have been issued by the me
teorological office to the southern and
northwest cca t. The weather is still
threatening , and R further disturbance
is anticipated. The air is cold , with a
prospect of snow iu the north.
The report Is renewed that Mr.
Bright , who holds a cabinet position
as chancellor of the duchy of Lancaa-
shire , and Mr. Chamberlain , president
of the board of trade , are abcut to
retire. The atory is believed lo take
its rise in the proposed visit of Mr.
Gladstone to Lord Derby , at Knowlen-
lyPark , the Jattor'a country seat. It
is affirmed by quidnuncs at the clubs
that this curious proceeding on the
put of the premier can have no other
legitimate interpretation than a pur
pose to indues Loid Derby to accept
some- position in the administration ,
and the course of events in Ireland
leads to the inference that he will be
tendered the lord lieutenacy in the
place of Kjrl Cowper , the present In
cumbent , and will become an active
ally of the liberals. Lord Derby is
an extensive landholder iu Ireland ,
and ia ono of the most popular land
lords among hn own tenantry , and the
Irish people generally. Evictions have
boon almost or qnilo unknown on his
estate , and this fact , combined with
his established reputation aa a man of
affairs , without whims , hobbies , or
any tendency toward being doctrinal ,
will , it is bolioved.render the appoint
ment good in its result upon the exist
ing feeling in Ireland. Nevertheless ,
the rumored exchange excites much
excitement in both liberal and con
servative circles , whore It is spoken of
,38 indicating n line of retreat in Mr.
Gladstone's announced policy of the
enforcement of law in Ireland.
