Gorman end His Gang Defeat the
Reform Ticket
One Hundred Thoumiml Dollars Dis
tributed Among Democratic
Strikers Ballot * From the
Demi One Murder.
noodle Cnrrlci * Baltimore.
BAI.TIMOUH , Oct. 20. [ Special Telegram to
tlio BKE. ] The city election here to-diiy was
an exceedingly quiet nffnlr for Baltimore ,
Up to the hour of writing the only disunity
retorted Is from the Seventeenth ward.
Here , Just as tlio ix > lls were nbout to close ,
several independents attempted to vote. A
gang of "regulars" attempted to prevent
them from doing so mid made n rush upon
them. One of the rushers Is dead In cense
quence. Your correspondent visited more
than half the polling places during the day.
There \vui little excitement at any of them ,
but everywhere It was apparent that the
"peelers" of tlio gang had received their in
structions and were ready to carry them out.
There were no open outbreaks , but the ne
groes were Jostled and crowded to such an
extent that many of them refused to risk
personal violence and declined to
vote at all. The poll lists had
been prepared with great care by Gorman's
men , and when Uartlett's supporters
offered their ballots. They found that the
Initials were changed or that they were dis
franchised because their names had been
mis-spelled , the entire election machinery
has been In the hands of the ring and as
every registry list is copied by the henchmen
of Hlgglns.KalsIn et nl , it was an easy matter
to make mistakes which deprives the inde
pendents and republicans of their votes. The
apparent result Is that Latrobc , the regular
democratic nominee forjmayor , is ejected by
majority of between 8,500 and r.,000.
Whether this majority Is real or not remains
to be seen. It Is somewhat , remarkable that
the returns are coming in more slowly than
ever before. Jt is nearly five hours since the
polls closed , yet only about GO IKT cent of the
IbO polllng places have sent In their returns.
The independent democrats admit that
lll > on the faeo of the figures they
are beaten at least ! l,000 , but they insist that
the returns reported are not the real results
of the election. Yet , In spite of this claim ,
Latrobe will undoubtedly be the next mayor
of lialtliiioro. Money without stint has been
used and bribery of colored voters bus been
open. Every municipal , state and federal of-
llco holder In that city has been bled , and It
is charged that the custom house and the
postonico each contributed $12OM. The In
dependent leaders clnlm that not less than
$100,000 was used to carry the election , and
they propose to light it through still.
Mr. William L. Mnrbury , who is ono of the
principal men in the ranks of the independent
democrats , said to-night : "Wo do not want
the court to assume that wo are beaten be
cause of the apparent majority for Latrobc.
Two years ago Hodges appeared to
have 2,200 majority on the night of
election. Wo proved afterward that ho
was really defeated by at least 8,000.
The citizens' reform association has been at
work for the purpose of purging the elections
of fraud. Wo have many of the scoundrels
in the penitentiary , but not all of them. Wo
have worked hard to get the registry lists
cleansed of the names of dead men , but wo
had time to attend to only six of the twenty
wards and In those six wo had 1,200 fraudu
lent names stricken off. There are probably
4,000 still remaining and these 4,000 , although
dead , voted to-day. Wo propose to keep on
in the work of reform , even though we have
to adopt the Sun Francisco plan and hang a
few of the ring leaders of the ring. "
Mossra. Cross , Marbury , Cowin , Koso and
a dozen others of the reformcis expressed
themselves as still determined to carry on
the fight , no matter what the result of the
election to-day may ultimately prove to bo ,
They feel certain that Hrooks , the rcpub
lican candidate for governor , Is a great deal
stronger in the city of Baltimore than Burt-
lett , the nomtnco for mayor. This claim is
undoubtedly well founded , as the Knights ol
Labor have openly denounced Jackson , the
regular democratic nominee for governor
wnllo they had no quarrel with Latrobe
Besides tills. It will bo difllcult to blew
the oOlcoholdors BO soon again. Bui
the Independents have learned , once more
that they have n shrewd , sharp ganj :
of practical politicians to compete with. Gor
man Is no tyro in political chicanery and hi'
Houtcnnnts arc acknowledged to bo mnoiii
the most astute "lino workers" in the conn
try. Mr. Cowcn and his followers havi
hoped to win by moral suasion and clean po
lltlcnl methods , while their opponents havi
used every ono of the tricks for which the ;
are celebrated. The result seems to shov
once moro that machine methods nro tin
moat effective In great cities , and it ronllj
looks to-night us though the plan of "Hang
ing o few of the leaders" will have to In
pdopted before Baltimore. < ! an bo freed froii

LONUOX , Oct. 20. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Bun. ] The Standard ,
referring to Chamberlain's visit to the
United States , thus begins nn editorial :
"Tho Irish In America are evidently greatly
alarmed at the prospects of people of the
United States being enlightened as to the
true state of affairs In Ireland by Mr. Cham
berlain. No Inconsiderable portion of the
press of the United States appears wholly
Ignorant as to the facts In the case as seen
from the English point of view. Their con
ductors appear never open to reputable Eng
lish Journals , but draw their opinions and
views wholly from papers like the Irish
World and the platform speeches of the Irish
orators. " Tills is intended to bo sarcastic
on the Herald , but It is reserved
for the Dublin Express , the
organ of the Orangemen and landlords
to have the Herald move it to Donnybrook
fair rhetoric , thus : "That not very respect
able organ of Now York opinion , the Herald ,
has been preparing us for a break-off by
warning Mr. Chamberlain of the cluiravnri
which the Irish population wel
come him with on hit arrival. This is a dis
courtesy which Is unique. They warn Lord
Salisbury that if ho wishes the fishery ar
rangements to bo broken off ho will per
sist in his plan of sending us a diplomatist a
personn ingratuislmi : to the Irish. This is u
fresh intrusion of mob law Into international
disputes. Hitherto the mob has limited
Itself to municipal matters in dispute be
tween the masses and classes , but now wo
are to bo treated to a new departure , and
the races which mix and niinglo
in the United States are to retain their
old race rancors. If this were to
go on and cxtendtho Bohemian and German ,
Crotlan and Hungarian , would clamor each
to reflect in the several embassies of the
United States some of the rivalries which
they have left behind , but which linger on in
Germany or Austria. Let us hope that the
Herald is unique in its construction of the
meaning of Mr. Chamberlain's mission , and
that wo shall not be plagued with impertin
ences of this kind when a conservative
premier goes into the liberal ranks to llnd a
commissioner , who is willing to sink party
considerations in order to servo his country.
But , dismissing the impertinences of the
Herald , it is useless to shut our eyes to the
bitter truth that our colonial policy of the
last thirty years , which is only the outcome
of our free trade policy of the same date , is
the true source of all our troubles in Canada
and elsewhere. " And then the Exprcsswith
utter disregard of the unities of the subject
matter , passes from the fisheries to free
trade , and contends that the British colonies
vex the mother country with their protection
He Meets His Electors and Is De
[ Copi/r/uM / tSStliu James Gonlim Hcnndt. ]
Torus , Oct. 25. [ New York Herald Cable
Special to the Ben. ] The grand jour pas
arrives. Wilson appears before his electors.
The scene recalls that of Sir Charles Dilko
before his electors at Chelsea , except that
Wilson's electors disavow him. At 9 this
evening all the electors and Wilson assem
bled in the circus. The accused sits with his
face , wild and haggard , resting on his el
bows. The crowds howl and yell at Wilson ;
erics of "Eh vu done , sorrulior mot , " then
bursts into the circus , streaming In to all
seats on In the ring everywhere. The presi
dent rings the huge bell and exclaims : "Citi
zens , M. Wilson consents to explain his con
duct , but on condition that you listen to
him. " "Oui , oui , " resounded cvcrwhcro.
When Wilson then mounts a little ladder to
the raised platform ho passes a nervous
hand quickly through his long beard ,
and oven tears out the hairs
with wild clutches. "Citizens , " says Wilson ,
"I thank you for listening. " Profound
silence ensues and Wilson continues : "Ills
always painful for an honest man " ( hero
shouts and jeers interrupted the sjxcch ! ) .
Continues Wilson , audaciously , and in a high
voice : "It est penihlo pour un lioneto
hommo. " The tumult hero interrupted the
speech ; cries of "asscz , " nsscz , " reecho on
all sides. The cries answer the accusation.
"You swindler , wo don't eomo hero to listen
to poetry. " Hero most infernal shouting
and yelling put an end to all order for half
an hour , ut the end of which the president
managed to make himself hoard. Ho
shrieked : "This assembly , after having
heard M. Wilson , declares that ho is a traitor
and has betrayed his trust , and has nothing
to do but resign. Ho is no longer worthy to
rogresent Towralne. " Wilson replies. "I
am not before my Judges. " M.
Ernest Roche rises nnd shouts ,
"You wretch , you nro before your electors. "
It was voted ut once that all accusations
wcro well founded. WilsVm gathers up his
papers in nervous haste and walks nwuy.
umids shouts of "demission , " "demission. "
It is now 11:30. : Four thousand people re

A Doctor's Strange Suicide.
Sioux CITV , la. , Oct. 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the UKB. ] Dr. Condron , of Danbury ,
this county , killed himself at his homo yes
terday morning. He placed the gun to his
head and discharged it by means of a
string attached to the trigger.
Dr. Condron was one of the oldest and
most resected citizens of the county. Ho
had been n practicing physician nt Danbury
for a number of years. Ho has several
grown up sons and daughters and three
younger children. The alleged cause for the
terrible deed Is remorse from the exposure of
nn attempt to commit un abortion on a do
mestic in the Danbury house named Miss
Wedsell. A few weeks ngo and before the
scandal was talked of Dr. Con
dron went to Pennsylvania to visit.
Shortly after the unfortunate girl was
brought homo from Council Bluffs , whence
she had lied und her father caused tlio arrest
of her seducer. In her examination in the
justice's court at Danbury the girl said that
Wedsell had called Dr. Condron to perform
an abortion and that ho had attempted to do
this ttrst by drugs. Failing to accomplish
the work with drugs she said ho tried instru
ments and also failed in that. As it is the
Sirl is in a very delicate condition. Dr. Con-
ron's brother wrote him what the girl said
and advised him if innocent to como homo
and clear the matter up. Ho came homo but
complained of ill health and was little seen
on the streets. He denied the girl's story.

In the case of Perry , who applied for a
release by habeas corpus , while under indict
ment for embo7/.lcment it was incidentally
decided that the law , reorganizing the grand
lury of this state , was constitutional. The
ast legislature reduced the size of
the grand Jury , varying It according
to population of counties in which situated
and provided that an indictment might bo
brought by n less number of Jurors than the
constitution originally required. Perry was
indicted by a grand jury thus reorganized
and he claimed a release on the ground that
the law regarding the size of the grand jury
was not constitutional in not being uniform
in operation In all parts of the state and that
it interfered with the original constitutional
requirement fixing twelve ns necessary to an
indictment. Tlio court refused the applica
tion for u release on those grounds and sus
tained the law reorganizing the grand jury ns
constitutional thus making n decision of far-
reaching importance.

Mr. Wnshburne inherited the polities of
liberty. His own studies nnd reflections
came to reinforce this natural bias , and the
moment ho touched the question of slavery
he became a disciple of that truth which
elected n president in 1800 nnd which soon
set the slave-i free and made each state In the
union n pet feet republic. Hero in this coflin
lies un unbroken friendship which reached
from Henry Cluy to Lincoln und Grunt , ut

tion which comes from the help of kindred
minds. The tomb only can separate such
men. Their hearts are not bound by passion.
but by similar great thoughts and great

length to Mr. Woshburno's career abroad
and concluded with the reflection that while
the deceased had spent most of his Ufa amid

with perfect peace.

A Talk With Two Irish M. ! . Now
In This Country.
CHICAGO , Oct. 22. [ SpecialTelegram to the
HEK. ] Sir Thomas Oral tan Esmondc , or
plain ' 'Mr. Esmoudo , " as ho Insists upon
bslng called , representing the Irish national
party , talked freely to-day about Irish af
fairs and the result obtained thus far from
the American trip which ho and Arthur
O'Connor ' , M. P. , are taking for the benefit of
the Irish people. "The American people nro
taking great Interest In the cause which wo
" said South Dublin's
represent , representa
tive , "and our meetings have been well at
tended wherever held. In fact , crowds have
been oftentimes turned nwuy. Wo ore here
to secure the sinews of war in our light with
n despotic form of government , and , to judge
from the results obtained up to the present
time , wo nro certainly succeeding. The
money wo secure from our meetings is to bo
used In defraying the expenses attendant
upon securing the right of voting to every
nationalist who Is a legal voter. Every
year there Is what Is called
a revision of votes , and at such
times the judges , who nro all lo
ries , take It upon themselves ,
through petty technicalities , to make
these votes illegal and substitute tor.v
votes. To light these cases wo spent 11,000
last year In employing inspectors and defray
ing other expenses. In Ulster tory bulldoz
ing wns so widespread that the nationalists
wore compelled to URO i'40,000 in order to se
cure proper registration , BO you can see what
opjxisltlon wo have to contend with. The
stories of the cruelty of landlords in evict
ing tenants , which are printed , nro not a jot
overdrawn In fact , you do not hear of half
the outrages practiced upon the people. The
constabulary , who remove the tenants , are
selected for their brutality , and are removed
if they show the slightest sympathy with the
people. They look u ] > on themselves ns little
gods. The lories are now negotiating for a
large force of Orangemen from the north of
Ireland to net as ] x > lice agents , and should
they curry out their plans the police will cer
tainly do something desperate. I think
Gladstone will be ut the * head of
the government once moro within n
year. The present ministry is mak
ing worse blunders , and the mur
murs of discontent are louder every day.
However , I don't believe the defeat of the
present ministry will bo mnda on the Irish
question. "
Mr. O'Connor said that he was much grat
ified at the reception accorded to them in this
country. "But , " ho added , in reply to a
question , "I really have seen absolutely
nothing of the country except from the in
side of a railway train. "
At 11 o'clock O'Connor and Esmonde , In
company with Alexander Sullivan , were
driven to the stock yards , where the visitors
were given a peep at Armour's paeklug
house. This afternoon the distinguished
Irishmen left for Milwaukee , where they
speak to-morrow. The meeting to bo hold
Friday night nt Battery D , and which will
"jo addressed by both O'Connor and Es-
: noude , will doubtless bo largely attended.
Tlio committee of arrangements announce

The Granddaughter of Chief Justice

oing upon the the stage , Miss Ethel Sprague ,
daughter of Mrs. Kuto Chose and ex-Gov
ernor William Sprague , and granddaughter
of Chief Justice Chase , Bays : "My mother
makes no objection. Slio sees that I am do-
.ermined and she has not at any time abso-
utely tried to dissuade mo from my purpose.
My friends , of course , violently object to my
going upon the stage , but I do not heed their
objections. Mndum Modjeska , Lawrence
Barrett , John T. Kaymond. Robert Downing
und Henry Irving have been most kind to mo
und while they have set forth the dlfllcultics
of their profession , they have all
told mo that I possessed dramatic tal
ent which would ono day command recognition
of the public if I persevered. When I do go
upon the stage I shall seek some subordinate
position in a llrst class company and work
my way up. I would like if jwssiblo to spend
a your ut the Paris conservatoire , where I
could have the advantage of instructions of
Coxuellcn. I rcaliro all of the consequences
of the step , I think , and am prepared to ac
cept the burden of work that will fall ujmn
mo. I may not go upon the stage in this
country , but may make my first venture in
England , where I have a good many tried
friends , us has also my mother , and Irving
told mo that whenever I decided to take the
step ho would give mq nil the assistance in
his power. I have had my experience in a
stock company and have learned the business
of the profession. I shall bo u tragedienne ,
making all the range of Shakespeare's fe
male characters. I have been very success
ful in recitations. Even the most prominent
actors and actresses who have heard mo
recite have complimented mo on my work
and have predicted that I would succeed. "

Nina an She Is.
CIIICAOO , Oct. 20. [ S | > cclttl Telegram t < |
the BKK. ] Not ono of the swarm of pcoplo
who go to In Unite pains to bo admitted to tha
Jail cares for anything else so much ns to se
Miss Van Zandt and August Spies. Tha
newspapers and public gossip have woven
such n halo of romance nbout the rather hit
significant and melancholy girl , that she
nn object of uncommon Interest until she
seen. The ladies are always disapiwlntcd.
"Why , she Isn't pretty. " "What plain girl
she is anyway. " "Humph I" or some such ex
pressions is the first thing they utter. Then ;
they go to dissecting her toilet , multiplying
criticisms , admiring Spies or edging up close ,
as the mere impertinent ones do , to catch a
scrap of the conversation , as Nina hangs on
to the iron bars talking to Spies. There la
ono remarkable thing to see in Miss Van
Zandt , and that is how much she has grown
to be like Spies. So far ns manner and bear *
lug nro concerned the likeness id
almost startling. The same stubborn
and contemptuous glance , the fiamd
smile a drawing of the facial muscles aug-1
grstivc of cynicism and disdain , and the sama
independent carriage of the body. Her con
vernation is colored by the socialistic lore
which she has taken on since her acquaint *
anco with Spies , and she talks In u lecture- "
room style of capitalistic oppressions ami
conspiracies against thu workingmcn. This
forbidding resemblance to Spies Is , however ,
softened by the pathos of her unfortunate
and hopeless love for him.
All tlio anarchists seem to IKJ in excellent
physical condition except Schwab. There is
in him a great weakness and debility. Ho
almost totters at times in his walk and he
does not walk much during the exercise houru
but prefers to sit languidly In a elialr until
the Jailor pounds the iron bars ns n signal
that the hour is up. An old
ex-jailor of Cook county said today !
"These fellows have got no idea of
escaping death. They have made up their
minds that they have got to die and they are
now figuring simply on the way they shall
die unit what the result will bo on their fol
lowers and on society. Ono thing Is certain ,
they will emulate the example of the Rus
sian nihilist and exhibit , if they can , an in
difference to death which will dllfercntiato
thorn from all other criminals. If they die
on the gallows it will bo according to an
agreement among themselves in a thoroughly
dramatlo and Frenehy manner , with defiant
utterances and ghastly nonchalance. All anarchists -
, archists pride themselves on their material
istic belief and their consequent contempt for
the king of terrors , and it Is down in the pro J
gramme of our North Side anarchists that
they are to exhibit a coolness which shall
freeze the very blood of the monopolists. Butte
to tell you the truth , I would not bo at all'
surprised if they cheat the gallows by suicido. .
There has been no precaution tuken to prevent'
this. All that ono of them needs , to do this ,
is a gum capsule containing u single drop o {
prussic acid , which ho can conceal anywhere
in his clothes or in his oar or his nose for ,
that matter. The burning desire of Mrs. ,
Schwab to embrace and kiss her husband
looks to mo very much like n female strutnV
gem by which to convoy poison. "
There seems to bo an almost universal belief - '
lief hero that tlio supreme court will refuse
to interfere. Of course there is no Hulmtan-
tial reason for this feeling , yet it is in the air. ,
An equally indefinable belief is that Gov
ernor Oglcsby will grant the anarchists
respite and even commute the death sentence
of some of them to life imprisonment. '
Fiolden snd Parsons uro believed to bo thosn
who nro likely to receive his clemency. At
the sheriff's ofllro to-day it was stated tlm $
no preparations whatever had yet been mada
for the execution. Should the execution take )
place all the men will bo bunged together.
No ono but the ofllcials , press representative
and the jury will bo allowed to witness tha
hanging. _
Should Ito Taken With Salt. >
CHICAGO , Oct. 20. To the forty men nm\
dozen women who attended the meeting of
the "Amnesty association" to-night , Presl-
dent L. S. Oliver made a remarkably state
ment. Ho said ho had been greatly dlsup-
pointed at not receiving moro petitions with
signatures from states outside of Illinois
asking a commutation of sentence for the
condemned anarchists. He believed tha
only way to account for not receiving them
was that they had been tampered with in the
United States mail. In many cases in an
swer to a request ho hud sent rolls of blank
petitions to parties in Wisconsin , PemU
sylvnnla and New York two or three
times over and still they would write thuttho
matter had never been received. Mrs.
Holmes , who was an associate editor on tha
Arbcitcr Zeitung before the Haymarkot riot , '
jumped up and said she had been threatened
with arrest by authorities In the postofllc4
for mailing amnesty petitions. Olive *
replied that she could not be arrested , but
that those making such throats were liable
to arrest and good lawyers had volunteered
to prosecute such cases. Oliver also sola
that invitations had been sent to over two
hundred and fifty ministers , asking tncm to
attend the amnesty meetings and cxpics *
their opinions , but none hud come and veryf
few hud responded even by letter.
