Counting the VotrH.
Yesterday was ono of the strongest
and yet quietest elections held in this
city. The now registry law bare out
out those who had not their names en
rolled before , and there was none of the
old-fashioned swearing In of votes. The
registry was a larger ono than at any
previous election , for there have been
many additions to the population during
the year. There was an earnestness
about the election which was not of the
brass band and hurrah order , although
there was an abundance of music and
enough enthusiasm to make it interest
ing. There was a largo proportion of
sly voting , though. Men were numer
ous who kept their ballots snugly folded ,
not caring to display their intentions to
friends even. There were many repub
licans who apparently were fulfilling the
predictions that the prohibition policy
of the ijarty would drive some into the
opposition camp. There was consider
able , scratching on the local candidates.
The polls were open till eight o'clock ,
and the vote being so largo and the
bcratching bo plenty , the judges and
clerks started in on their task of count
ing with what seemed IHllo prospect of
completing the count before the early
hours of the morning.
The day was cool and cloudy , and
seemed especially cloudy for the repub
licans. The confidence of the democrats
in their ability to make a clean sweep
of the county ticket was in strange con
trast with the hopes of the republicans
that they would succeed in electing two
of their candidates , William Arnd. as
auditor , and John Bennett , as sherilY.
These two were here the strongest stays
for the republicans , and bejond them
there seemed to bo little confidence ex
There were few cases of disturbance ,
and not an arrest during the day. There
were occasional skirmishes , a few hot
words , a blow or two , a separation of
would-be combatants , and then peace.
Despite the fact that there was supposed
to bo a police force , pa\d for by the tax
payers , they seemed to find no occasion
to make arrests so long as the polls weio
open. Some of the force were busy
helping out the major's chances
for the bonatorship , and serving
as ward workers , rather than policemen.
The saloons for there are still saloons
in prohibition Iowa closed their front
doors during the day , but it was very
easy to locate their back ones , for about
these there was a swarm , coming and
going. There were as many evidence-
in" drink as on any election day under
the license system , and seemingly more.
In the years past it has been the custom
for the mayor to is-ue a proclamation
ordering the saloons to be closed. The
singular fact is that although this year
no such proclamation appeared , for it
could not bo done consistently , yet the
saloons closed their front doors.
The present law in regard to elections
is very strict in its prohibitions of ticket
peddlers being allowed within a hun
dred feet of the polls. The law provides
that each voter shall have a chance to
go to the polls alone , and having deposited -
posited his ballot , to retire and leave
the space clear for others. The ropes
were drawn yesterday to show the "dead
line , " inside of which it was supposed
that none but the men voting , the chal
lengers and the special police should be
allowed. The police regulations were
yesterday arranged , apparently , in the
interests of the democratic mayor , and
in furtherance of his candidacy for the
senatorship. In several instancesdemo-
cratio ward workers , and policemen
peddling tickets , went within the sacred
enclosure undisturbed and unmolested ,
while those working for the opposition
ticket were summarily ordered away.
Such nets were not only breaches of fair
play , but were direct violations of the
law , which should bo followed up with
such penalties as the law provides.
There was much talk yesterday about
votes being bought. There was ovorj
indication that there was an unholy
tralllo going on , and gome made the
claim that they had positive proof thai
such was Uio case. It was claimed thai
some of the lookers-on from n conven
iently located window saw the mono )
change hands-and were ready to sweat
to what they knew. Colonel Daily wiu
investigating the matter , but was nol
decided last night , or at least would nol
express himself , as to whether ho woulO
prosecute or not.
The vote polled yesterday at the vari
ous polling polling places in the differ
ent wards was oven larger than antici
pated. In all 11,072 votes were east ,
which was 277 short of the registration.
The First ward registered 004 and
polled 5.V7 votes , the Second ward regis
tered 094 and polled ! K)4 ) , the Third reg
istered GGO and polled 022 , the first pre
cinct of the Fourth ward registered 72 (
and polled G7I1 , the second precinct ol
the Fourth ward registered 3G2 and
At 11 o'clock only three or four hun
dred votes had been counted , and the
indications wore that there would bo no
finish until 3 or 4 o'clock in the morn
The count proceeded very slowly and
at a Into hour was still very incomplete ,
The democrats claim the election by
800 , and the republicans concede it , but
by between 300 to 400 majority : There
is no doubt but that the democratic
county ticket is elected.

.Mlveil Kills On Grading.
When the first batch of bids wore
opened for the grading of lower Broad
way there appeared to bo irregularities
in some of them , there being an absence
of bids and other deficiencies. Among
the bids at that tlmo was ono by Owen
Bros. , who had been Induced by Mr.
Evans to bid on the work , ho owning
considerable property in that vicinity
and desiring that the work should bo
done as cheaply as possible. The bid oi
Owen Bros , was drawn up In Mr. Evans'
olllco by his son , and in accordance with
the dictation of Owen Bros. , who signed
it. A bond was made out with good
sureties , but no definite amount was
named in the bond. It was decided that
the amount should bo specified , instead
of being a blanket guarantee. All the
bids wore rejected , nail al a. later meet
ing now ones were received.
In preparing to bid again , Owen
Bros , took their bond and bid back tc
Mr. Evan's ofilco to have the defect
remedied. The new bond was made out
as required , and Mr. Evans , after signIng -
Ing it , tore up what ho supposed was the
old bond , and threw It in
the wabto basket. When the
envelope , was opened the bond
was there all right , but no bid could bo
found. It was discovered that the bid
had been torn up , and thrown into the
waste basket instead of the old bond.
The torn pieces were llshed out , pasted
together , and accompanied by an ntll-
davitofMr. Evans corroborating this
claim , and also by nn utlldnvit of his
son , who had drawn'up the bid origin
ally and who Identillcu it as the original.
With these allldavlts it was evident
thcro was no collusion , but simply an
The council admitted the bid under
these circomstaaccs and awarded the
contract to Owen Bros. , for tilling the
western end of the street at 3-5 cents a
yard. Among the other bidders were
Wells , Rellly & Co. , who had offered to
do the grading on the eastern end for
85 cents and the western one ! nt 53
cents. They wore therefore awarded
the eastern end of the work. They now
protest against the award to Owen
Bros. , and want to have all the bids
rejected , or else that the contract bo
given to Wells , Heilly & Co. This firm
now offers to do the entire grading from
the Northwestern depot to the river for
"The DcpHtrlk Skulc. "
This amusing amateur entertainment
which was given hero with such suc
cess , is now being reproduced in all
parts of the country. The Congrega
tional society of this city found the de
mand for particulars so great that they
have published a largo edition of
pamphlets giving the needed informa
tion as to how to provide this unique
entertainment. These are meeting
with a ready sale , and the first objection
to any feature of the entertainment
now arisesin prohibition Iowa , the
Cuss County Democrat thus ghing ut
terance to it :
A score or more of jrood people intlm enter

nmtlc club mid will present , with an excellent

nmrkiible fcatniu of the programmo is the
following closing song to bo sung by the mi-

Such a pledge , on the part of an entire au
dience , with the light of Iowa piohibitioa
glaring from the pulpit , the piess and repub
lican rostrums , Is both blasphemous and trea
sonable. Lot them once ratify this social
pledge , and the urbltrnury arm of Judge

An Umbrella Muko.s Trouble.
Tom Carey , a well known railway
man , was unfortunate enough yesterday
to lend his umbrella to some democratic
friend , who in turn lent it to another ,
and finally it was loaned to Captain
O'Brien , of the police force , who was ono
of the zealous workers at the polls.
When Carey got ready to u o his um
brella him-elf , ho applied to O'Brien
for it and was met with a plump
refu-al , which stirred his ire.
Ho couldn't see why he couldn't
have his own rain protector ,
and the words llow hot. O'Brien ar
rested a man named Rosomnn , for in
terfering in the controversy , and turned
him over to another ollico'r. Then he
wont for Carey , and arrested him.
There was much indignation about thij-
proceeding , and a crowd went to the
jail and ile'manded a fair deal. Oflicoi
O'Brien had been very oflicious during
the day , and patience had ceased to be
a virtue. The arrested men were re-
leaded , and the umbrella returned to

As there are a very largo number ol
inventors in Philadelphia , and as they
are all moro or less interested in the
questions asked in the letter above , a
News reporter yesterday saw a well-
known patent lawyer , who gave the in
Application for n patent must bo made

he believes himself to bo the

that ho does not know it to have been

his invention hna not been put In use oren
on sale in the United States for more
than two years prior to the application ,
and the oath must contain a statement
of the inventor's citizenship or resi

The government fee for a patent lslC
on tiling the application anil $20 after
the application is allowed , and before
the patent is issued. If a patent attor
ney is employed his fco will range from
$113 to $100 , averaging from $25 to $50.
A patent runs seventeen years , and
cannot bo renewed except by special act
of congress. Up to 1801 patents were
granted for fourteen years , and could
bo renewed for seven years.
A caveat is simply a warning to the
patent olllco. It is tiled with the com
missioner of patents , and sets forth ,
under oath , that the applicant has made
an invention , but has not completed it ,
and desires further time to experiment
with a view of doing so. The caveat is
Hied in order that the inventor may bo
entitled to notice in case anyone else
puts in application for a patent for the
same thing. A caveat costs $10 , and can
bo renewed from year to year by paying
a similar government fee. In case a
similar application is Hied during the
life of the caveat the caveator is notified
and must lilo his application for a pat
