) ) KS MotNK * , Iowa , Nov. 1. [ .Special to the
BBB.J Thu lowu campaign of 1 * > 5 Is practi
cally closed. AJ1 that remain.- ) now is to get
the votcn out. The arguments are all in , tlio
case.luw been given to llio Jury , und the ver
dict will be returned on Tuesday. It is doubt
ful If there lion ever been a campaign waged
With inoitj vigor in an "off year , " especially
In u year succeeding the pro Identlal election.
As a rule these years have shown n reaction
from the excitement of the picsl-
lientlal contest , and republicans es
pecially Imvo stayed at homo and let
politics tuku care of Itself. DemoeraLs
never stay at home thai Is when they can get
a chance to vole. Here , In Iowa , they aie
generally s.itls.icd with \olingonce , provided
republicans don't vote at all. But this year
of will be relatively
the number slay-ut-lmmeri
tively Hinull. Heri'toloie , for sixteen years ,
the republican shrinkage in corresponding
yearn lias averaged SI per cent of the republi
can vote the > e.ir previous , while the demo
cratic from ntnv-at-homi's has
shrinkage - - aver
aged but ! jier cent , lioth sides are fully
awaku lo the importance of gelling out the
full vole , and If Hie d iv Is fair there Will be
a large poll. It is amusing to see
how InteiiM ! Intere.st in one's own cause tin-
lits one to judge ol Its meiits and ils pros
pects. Tim old stijlng , lhat a physician
tiboitld never treat hluiHMf when sick might
he paraphrased that a eiindidate should never
conduct lii-i own eamp.iign or itltemiit to
inuki ! estimates on the resiuts. Judge Kinne ,
who has twice been an unsuccessful dcmn-
cmtie candidate for governor , has managed
liis own campaign asehaliman of thu state
central committee , and the result , shows the
wisdom of his plan. This year .Mr. Whiting ,
the democratic candidate , while not directing
the campaign , seems lo think hluiM-lf im-iti-
lied to pass upon its merits and to decide
upon its probable results. He ' , a > s. In pri
vate convcrsalion , lhat he believes he is going
to be elected and t lie rest of the ticket with
him , while there isn't a democrat of any
political sagucitv In the slalu lhal will con
firm or endorse his view. It simply shows
that a candidate Isn't the most reliable man
to eoiiMiit on the probable returns. In this
respect Whiting Is not , unlike the late lov- !
crnor llondly , of Ohio. He labored under n
Himllar deiiision a few weeks Mncu.
Speaking of Ohio , all of Its stiong republi
can speakers have not pine to Virginia , ( .ion.
W.V. . ( Jlbson , of the mickoyo staus Is now

in Benton county , Iowa , "making several
X BpcechcH for the republican county commit
tee , wlio are lighting a rattling cuT > ipnhii.
They expect to cany the county and
gain one member of the legislature
there. If the republicans carry all
the doubtful districts , for which they
have an cimul chance with the democrats ,
they are going lo have at least sixty of the
One hundred members of the next house , and
probably more.
Then ) has never before been a campaign in
this state when one party felt so much Ixnio-
litteil by the canvass of the other that it was
willing tu biroUie candidates of the opposi
tion to remain in the neld. But that is the
case this > wir. Coppeih-ad Whiting , with
his malodorous record of disloyally during
tlie war , and his manifest lack of ability and
iiiilitno.is for the ollico of governor , hurls his
own cause so much wherever lie appears , that
the republicans .aro anxious to have him in
every county in the .state. Ho spoke In Llnu
county a few-weeks ago , and did the republi
cans so much good that Ihoy have offered the
demoeiats one hundred dollars if they would
let him come back and speak 1'iere ' again.
The offer was not accepted. No Intelligent
democrat expects to carry the slate ticket.
Mut many intelligent and unintelligent dem
ocrats arc working with mlijht am ) main to
carry thu legislature. They want , ilrst of all.
to repeal tlie prohibitory law , und thus carry
out their contract with the saloons. Then
they want the prestige of beating the republi
cans In Iowa , which would be something lo
Bhoiit about. Then , thlid , they want to gel a
start toward the election of a United States
senator two years irom this winter. All
senators elected this tall will vote lor
u duccessor to James F. Wilson in the
Un.ted States senate. The man who seems
to be the moat familiar with this fact Is James
13. Weavi r , the chameleon of American
polllles. He was an eurnest and intlucntlal
republican , but he left Hie party in IKTU be
cause he couldn't get the ofleu ] lie wauled.
lie lived with the prohibitionists and sup
ported their candidate for the appalling lime
of one week. He then hlos.sontcd out as a

ueen a Hessian whose peiviecu weie always
"to let. " This year he is leased by the dem
ocrats , and although he liasiilwaysheietoforo
been one of thu lomlot prohibitionists in thu
elate , ho has gone completely over the bav ,
ftUd he howls himself hoarse nightly in behalf
'of tlie compulsory saloon plank of the thiiu-
.oeratle party.
Hut the inspiring motiveforthlssomersault
'Is ' h.fl ambition lor the sent in the United
States senate , now held by Senator \Vlh-on.
lie is making this campaign with lhat end in
view , and lor lhal putpo-.it only. Although
lilicd by the democrats , hu denes tliolr control
and speaks only where he think * lie will do
'himself the most good. That Is Wcaveribm
every time , and now that he has become a
f nil Hedged member of their parly , the dem
ocrats see It to llielr sorrow. Wlillo noising
thu greenback party ho is also the acknowl
edged ring-master of the democrats , and they
\vntho under the lash , hut they are helpless.
One of the most prominent demiKjrats of thu
fUitOBald iccentfy that Ihe hardest work Ins

would ho to get rid of Weaver. Like thu "old
man of tin ) sea , " he has got bs ! arms around
thu neck of the demo'-nUic p.irty , and ho will
' not let go till they give him what ho du-
iiiiind : ) .
One of the influences which IR working
, ngainsl .Mr. Whiting with tremendous ! power ,
is his record on thu subject of church taxa
tion , Hu has always advocated taxing
chui'chcc ) jnil the same as business huus.-.s ,
mid when in llio senate two years ago , ho
voted for a bill to tax churches , parsonages ,
and church schools , and persisted in voting
for It against the rcmonatraneo of hundreds
of prlcwlrj and thousands of catholics whoso
interests weii ) most alfected by Ihe proposed
bill. Hu attempted at the outset of this cam
paign an evasive denial of his record , anil
upo.ogy for his eourbe. But It wasn't -atl.s-
factory , and now the catholics themselves
ro circulating appeals to their biethren to
Vote ugiuiist him , and they are working for
bis defeat. Ills opponent. Mr Larnibce ,
Voted opposite to him every time , and against
thu hill which as ptoiiocd was unjust and
likely to do great Injustice. So when the
voUtlif Tuwday is counted , Mr. Whiting' s
friends can cliar o a pait of his defeat to hi s
narrow-minded opposition to religious
.
DA democratic plot has been discovered
which was intended to win hcveial members
of the leglblutuu1. A dcmoeiatle ptliitlini

and is causing a sensation In church and
bocl.il circles. On the night In queUlon ,
Lieutenants Day and Birmingham of the reg
ular army , accompanied two young ladles to
church to iioar the eminent Kentitrkv divine ,
Hev. Ur. Oitiler. The four seemed to have
attended church purely as a matter of diver
sion , for they laughed and conducted themselves -
selves in such a manner as to cause i > er.sons
In the Immediate vicinity to move their scats
and avoid iliem. la his sermon DiUlcr
touched upon the evils of dancing and skat
ing rinks , whereupon Lieutenant Hirming-
ham and his companion got up and left the
church. Their dcpaitmo caused Dr. Ditzler
to request th.i congregation to remain seated
and not be leaving the services. It seems the
belli , t of the minister was construed by Day
as an Insult to llirmingham , tor immediately
uflcr the clo eof the services both the gallant
officers returned to the church and openly
charged the aged divine with liiMilth.g them.
Dr. Hither Indignantly denied such Inten
tions , anil In the heat of the controversy
charged Itiriningham with untruthiulncbs.
Itirmiiigham immedlutely drew himself up
In a hostile attitude , as thoimh about tostrike
the old preacher. Intense excitement pie-
valled , and M. Si. Irower ! , a prominent mem
ber of the church , came forwuid to the idiot'
of the aged pastor , courteously look the quar
rel oil' his hands , and ordered both ollicers to
leave the eluuh , ut the same time giving
them Ills addrcssand statimr that he expected
them both to call on him , and intimating
they weie cowaids if they did not. Both
ollicers are placed In unenviable positions.
They must either apologize , or light Hiower ,
or lesign their commissions liver , one an
ticipates a big light over the matter , as
llrower is a tynlcal Texan , game clear
through , and will laugh them out of the
army unless they light. Lieut. Day is lirst

Mrs. O. J. 1'ape , wifeofU'a ' book-keeper llv-
ug at Chester Park , went to a provision
store In Trcmout street Friday forenoon
accompanied by her little boy , who blood in
an open door while the mother madu pur
chases. Two rough appearing men came
along and bribed the little fellow to go with
.hem up Tremont street. When Mrs. Pape
earned this she hastily started in pursuit
laking a street car. She kept a watch for
the men , and at Jtoxlmry crossing caught up
"
with them. The mother got off" the ear and
made a run for the.m. The men saw her
coming and seizing the boy who struggled
uud yelled , they carried him into a hoiiM ) near
; it hand , Mrs. Pape rushed after them und
was just about to enter when her son came
nuininp outcrying and Hew dlieclly into her
arms. One of the men came out after him
ready to sci/.c and carry him back. He jno-
tendcd the boy was lost and that he and a
companion picked him up. "You ouuht to
uive us a reward for llnding him , " said he. .
The fellow then slunk back Into the hou < e.
Mrs. Pape was so overjoyed at recovering her
lost treasure she did not think to inform the
police of the affair. The purpose of the men
undoubtedly was to kidnap the boy and keep
him a few day and then demand a rew ard.
The attempt was one of the boldest that has
occurred lieie for some lime , the whole thing
being done In broad daylight , on a crowded
thoroughfare uud almost under the eyes ot
the mother.

NKW YOIIK , Nov. 1. ( Special to the Hun. ]
Tin1 cominp elections continue to occupy
almost the entire attention of England. The
dissolution of parliament Is at last announced
for Xo\ ember in , and the elections begin the
following week. Tlw chief contest on the
platforms Is still not between tlm lories and
liberals , but between the two sections of the
liberal party. Little has been done toward
composing the quarrel between the radicals
and moderate llbeials. Sir Charles Dltke on
Wednesday renewed his attack on Goschun
*
Chamliciliiin on the same day Issued a cur
electoral address. Faying in substance , " 1 am
Chamberlain , vote tor me , " but he found
room in ( his bile ! document for a direct allu
sion to Goschen as having made an unsuc
cessful icsistaiico to the extension of popular
liberties , and as now trying the stereotyped
liberal creed so as to pievent further reforms.
Sir Charles Dllko , however , Insists that the
agreement among the llbeial leaders respectIng -
Ing the Immediate piouramme is complete.
His rceiuphasis Is on the "immediate. " He
himself contributed something to It by
minimizing thu radical demands for the com
pulsory power of mttnieipallliiis loucouirc
lands for allotment among laborers. This
ronci'Mlon Is nppaienlly due to Lord
Htiriington's expier-s declaration that
Gladstone dlsipi'.oved of the allotment
scheme In ls ! radical original form. That Is
Lord IlaiUuuton's one explicit contribution
to the discussion. He conilnes himself on
other points lo saying he Is not prepaid ! to
follow the radical leader at present. The
liberals continue to exercise the almost un
checked leadership of public opinion , If not
in the councils ol tlio parly. One result is
that so good a liber.il as Kdward Dicey
publishes nn elaborate article in the Nine
teenth Centmy for XovemlKT , advising
moderate liberals lo "plump'1 for lory can
didates. The advice is bad , nut if the signs
multiply many will follow it , especially the
middle class voters In borough" . The tory
canvass is conducted with utmost languor.
Utter iliseourau'ement seized on cv. ryhoily
except Lord U-indolph Churchill , who e
speeches at Hirminghain abound in point ,
vigor and freshness , albeit his contest for
that seat is hopeless.
The Irish question is blinked on all sides ,
The lories refuse to set am' limits to the pos
sibilities of concessions. The radicals dra xv
a line at separating , but avoid discussion.
Uoycottim : thrives and icnts continue un
paid. Lord Spencer , in ano\pressives ] > eeeli ,
expresses the beliel that intimidation now
excels unythlnir previously known. The
papers are idled with detailed narratives by
victims.
Theie is little , If any , change In the posi
tion of affairs in the Balkans. The eonier-
euce has began work at Constantinople. The
Servians are ordered to keep tiuiet and obey.
Everything points to an uiidcratunding on
the wbolo question between the three em
perors. Lotd Salisbury lias appaicntly
thrown over the treaty oc JSeilin for nothin
and will have to look out while Bulgaria Is
aualr divided. It is believed he has per
suaded France and Italy to ac.t with England.
All three arc expected to withdraw from the
conference unless some compromise is ac
cepted by Ilussla , whose present ascendency
is complete. Vienna dispatches represent
tliu Greeks as exciU'd and warlike , hut nobodv
supposes hostilities will occur anywhere
while the conference Is sitting. .
Thu TlmcH published a summary of the
Anglo-Turkish convention respecting Kgvpt
that Is undoubtedly authentic Turkey Im
plicitly sanctions Eiulish occupation of
F.gypt , and England recognizes Turkish
Muerainty. Two eommbsioners , Turkish
and Kiiiillsh , have been appointed , with pow
ers which amount to a ireueral right of .super
vision of the khcdive's administration. En
glish occupation is to continue till these com
missioners agree to order the restoration of
the khedlve s authority and tlio indicated
frontier Is detined. It is doubted in
Cairo whether the sultan will ever appoint a
commissioner to execute the convention's
orden. but Sir Dnimmond Wolff's diplomatic
success is conceded.

LONDON , Nov. 1. The home rule party has
now held one-half of Its county conventions
in Ireland. In every one of these Parnell's
dominance has not been even contested. The
result has therefore been that thirty-eight
Parnullite candidates for parliamentary scats
have been nominated to receive the homo
rule vote , ami In every case the nomination
was made without a single division. Twenty
of these nominees are men who have ne\er
' " en members of the IIOIM : of commons. In
England the Irish cause is bcginnim ; to
attract n great dejtl of respectful attention
from persons who not Ion ; : ago ntte.ily Ig
nored It as nnwoithy of consideration.
Prominent Irishmen In London have com
bined to establish lu the metropolis an Irish
club on a basis equally Found and respectable
with that enjoyed by thu best of the other

already made considerable advance. Suitable

Nnw YOKK , Nov. 1. Ferdinand Wan ! was
sentenced by Judge Ilairclt Saturday to states
I'il < on for ten years.
Ferdinand Ward , smiling and perfectly
self-possessed , came info the ciowdcd court
room this morning to receive tlm sentence
of law for the crime of larceny , of which ho
had been convicted. The sheilff and warden
of Ludlow street jail accompanied him.
He threw off his overcoat with an easy air ,
and shook hands with his counsel.
As ho looked around the room ho
saw a few familiar fares. The Jury by which
Ward was found guilty was not pre > ent In a
body but a number of jurymen occupied seats
in tlie court room. The box , however , was
not empty. It was occupied by court at
taches and oUieis who had dropped in to hear
the sentence pronounced. The court , cleik
was promptly on hand with an assistant.
The judge , however , was late and did not ar
rive until twenty minutes alter the appointed
jlme. When the machinery of the law was set
in motion , a persistent Uv\er aroM ) and
asked for a stay of proceedings in u euso of
assault. Judge. Barrett tiied to pcistmdc the
lawjer to wait until later In the day ,
but ho was s.o persistent that the
Judge was obliged to hear
him then and thcic mid granted a stav of
proceedlngy. When the latter had IHH'U ills-
posed of tlm district astorney arose and said :
"Ferdinand Ward , prisoner at the bar , has
been found guilt v of the cilme with which he.
was charged. The counsel at the last , ses
sion of this court gave notice that at this
time a motion lor new trial would bo made.
J move thai the motion be made at this time. "
( ieii. Tracy , Ward's eonnsel.uiose and said :
"Defendant , Ferdinand Ward , moves this
court that judgment in tliisactlon be arrested
First , on thu ground that the facts
staled in the recond count of the
indictment did not constitute a crime ;
second , on the ground that the defendant ,
being the director ot a national bank and the
evidence charges him with procuring an un
lawful certiiicatiou of his own cheek by that
national bank , this court has not jurisdiction
oiilbo indictment. "
The bill of fiM'eptions upon which the de
fendant asks for a new trial reads as follows :
Firnt , in charging the Jury that there was
sufficient lo convict ; second , in charging the
jury the several propositions to which , niion
the trial , exceptions are taken and noted on
behalf of the defendant as appears upon the
minutes of the trial ; thlid , in refit-dmr to
charge thu jury on tlio several matters ie
qiiesied by the defendant , to which refusal
exceptions were then and there taken and
noted ; fourth , lu refusing to advise the jury
to acquit thu defendant and to which relusal
the defendant duly look exceptions ;
ntth. In refusing to direct ! He yury to acquit
( lie defendant and to which relusal the de
fendant duly excepted ; sixth , in ret using to
dirc-cl the jury to acquit the defendant on the
ground of variance between the proof and the
Uirtlcttaontaiid to which exception was taken.
Ai'tttrthe1 bill of inceptions 'Was read'thu

- Ward arose anil stood in front of t0 ) | bar by
the side of his counsel. Ills faeo was pale
but , Urm. Hp did not flinch as'Judgu Barrett
prohminccd the sentence , but stood unmoved
While , the court pronounced condemnation.
Thueomtroom wa's hnslied and an impres
sive silence fell upon the crowd , who watch
ed the prisoner with eagerness. "Ward , you
have been convicted by an intelligent and
conscientious jury1 began the Judire :
"You hnvo certainly had a fair and
an Impartial trial. The jurors were most
carefully selected and came to the trial of
your ca u with apparently unprejudiced
minds. The court guarded all your rlu'hls
and privileges from infringement to the best
of Ins ability. Yon wens convicted bc-caure
you had no defence to thu tacts. Hisonly a
matter for conjecture why so intelligint a
jury should have talt.'ii wo long lo decide
your case. If your case had been that
of a person wholly unknown the jury need
not lo have Ictt their seats. On the contrary ,
your case has had the beiiciit of moie than
careful consideration. You have been most
ably defended by your counsel , and his ud-
ilress as brilliuiit and scholarly us any ever
"ItehriVin thhi court 'room , and made in your
defense. You were not convicted on popular
clamor. Thu jury piobably de.a ul
In UK judgment because ! they were afraid that
in some way they might be accused ot' beinit
influenced by popular clamor , which tended
lo make the conviction doubtful. 1 havu
nothing to say to you In the way of homily ,
because i think it would be wholly uselens.
Von have shown yourself to ho
wholly indifferent throughout this
trial of the charges which haw been
biought against you. You seem to e\p Tlence
no remorsu whatever over the ruin and nor-
low which you have brought to hundreds of
people in this country. You have done morn
to unsettle public eoiiiidcucu In moneyed in-
stitullons than any other man of this
government. And yet through this whoie
u ill you have .shown yourself to be wholly
unrepentant lor the sins you have committed.
This being thu fact , I IIIIIB. simply content
myself with pronouncing the senUiiieu of the
court , which is that you shall be eon-
iined In the. states prison at hard
labor for a perlod'of ten years. "

known of the scandal at the signal school the
worse it looks for Ocn. Il.uen. It appears
that the ollicer whose hinguigi ! was com-
lilained of by the ejidcts acknowledged that
lie had bi'cn guilty of using it , and offered to
apologize to them , but Cion. Ha/.en would not.
ticrmlt him to do so , on the ground lhat it
was unbecoming nn ollicer to apologize
for a wrong of which lie con
fessed himself gulltv , as such an act
would humble him in tfic eyes of the soldiern
and Impair the discipline'of the corps. In
fact , the commandant of Foil Meyer , the
signal school , was reprimanded by G ueral
Il.T/.on forjulvising Lieut , ( liceiie , the ollicer
in question , to makuan apology , ticn. llaxen
admits lhat the complaint of the cadets was
trained in respectful language , and ays that
Lhi'.v aiv not being court-martialed 'for the
language they used , hut they all joined dm
nclilioii. If they had written Individual
letters they would not have been guilty
of an offense , but to combine in a simile
communication Is equivalent lo mutiny. Re
garding the proponed apology Gen. Hazen
snys that the Idea was thoroughly unmUitary.
Yutt-cnn shoot an officer , hut you cannot per
mit him to humblQ himself before his' Buoor-
