( Popl/rly/it / M > 8 liu Juint * ( Ionian JIcmir.lt , ]
LONDON .Ian. ft. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the HBK. ] The conserva
tives fully expected to win the election nt
Winchester , but tlio most sanguine did not
look for so large a majority us 514. This is
ITS over the majority trained in IbSO , consc'
quontly the conservative victory is the Ian ;
cst ever recorded In Manchester. Undoubt
edly this is a scvcro blow for tlic home
rulers , who hnvo exerted all tlielt
strength anil s > ent down relays of thuli
nblest speakers for weeks past. Never be
fore were so many speeches uiiuta in a small
constituency. Uoth sides worked tlieli
hardp.st , but the Glodstonlana showed the
greatest vigor and energy , and they were
greatly assisted by the temperance partj
who opposed the conservative candidate ,
not because of his politics , but because ho is
a brewer. The election has cost the Glad-
stonlans a considerable sum of money whlcl
they nro not well able to afford at this
moment. They have spent some thousand !
of pounds on country elections during
the past twelve months , nnd ii
may fairly bo doubted -whcthci
tlio frame was worth the candle. If the re
suits had been adverse to the government its
policy would naturally have been looked upoi
ns condemned. What conclusion is to bi
drawn from a victory which exceeds all iniii
istcrial anticipations. It would bo idle t (
deny that it will bo taken as a clear proo
that the coercion cry against the govcrnmcn
produces no effect upon the people
With several members of par
liamcnt in jail and other trials
pending , with B'llfour depicted in the darkes
colors and men llko Dillon and O'Connoi
dwelling day after day on the horrors o
tory rule , the lories at the first election o
18b8 surpass all former records. There is m
explaining away such a , fact as this. Semi
Gladstonians wliom I have met to-night ad
mil that they draw the gloomiest conclusioi
from this disaster to their cause. Then
was indeed more excitement at the Keforn
club than at the Carlton. When tin
news arrived the Hcform was fairly crowded
In the Carlton there were only half a dozei
members in the hall when the figures wen
put on the board. It was more important o
course for tlio liberals to carry the seat tlici
for their opponents to hold it. Th
latter liavo seen a wide margii
for losses to the former. Kvcry sea
gained is a poisoned arrow In th
Hank of their adversaries and a great mora
triumph for their views , hence their dcjec
lion is great and undisguised over tlio col
lapse of their hopes. First blood in the nc\
year counts to the ministry. Some will exul
and some will deplore , but facts are mor
momentous than sentiments in politics.
Looking frankly at the position ono canno
help seeing that the government will bo en
couragcd to go on in its course and that th' '
home rulers will bo shaken in their belle
that the English people are coining over ti
their side. There is no sign of th' '
millennium which they promised them
selves. The Irish orators do not produc
the effect which was confidently anticipated
Perhaps even they do harm. The Englisl
people are obstinate and it is common to hca
them say "Wo do not want Dillon or O'Con
nor to como dictating which way wo sbal
vote. Wo want the home rulers to lee I'at
nollitcs slay at home. " This I know is a prevailing
vailing feeling in many constituencies
Tliero must bo n new plan of cam
palgn for the Cladstonlanst Henowci
threats of disorder in London and elsewher
do them tremendous harm. Flowers o
eloquence do them no good. Do the peopl
really believe that the government is reprc
senting the cause of law and order agains
turbulence and anarchy } If so , the prcsen
efforts of home-rulers are vain. They mus
change their tactics- and suppress their to
zealous friends who talk of street dcmonstri !
tions nnd processions. This is the true morn
of the Winchester election.

NEW YOUK , Jan. fi. [ Special Telegram to
the HKI : . ] The Tribune , commenting on
Sherman's speech in the senate yesterday ,
says : "As a practical linancier , Senator
Sherman found little difficulty in subjecting
to destructive criticism the president's con
fession of helplessness in dealing with the
surplus. Ho proved that the power of the
secretary of the treasury to purchase bonds
was not a pretense nor a debatable supposi
tion , but an unquestionable right. With equal
success , as a defender of the American
economic system , the senator repelled the at
tack made in the message upon homo indus
tries. His plan In defense of the wool inter
ests was particularly effective , and his argu
ments in favor of largo reductions in internal
taxation were equally vigorous. Protection
ho eloquently described at the end of his
speech as the cause of homo missions.
American duty to homo industries , ho
contended , was greater than American
duty to foreign interests. This is the
precise issue which now divides parties and
is destined to furnish all the politics of the
presidential year. Senator Sherman's speech
cannot fail to prove helpful to tiie republican
cause from every jwint of view. "
The Times says : "Tho two aspirants for
the nomination of the republican party as
president have about an equally barren
policy to announcu and if the people get u
chance to vote upon It definitely they will
make short work of it. "
The Herald says : "Mr. Sherman seems
to bo domorullzediby the cxigcncles'of his
candidacy. His speech on the message yes
terday was a more vehnsli of Mr. Blalno's
cable and displays poor Mr. Sherman in the
unpleasant nttitu'do of one of Bluiuc'a most
abject followers and Imitators. "
Ncwrour , U. I. , Jan. 5. [ Special Tele
gram to the UEI : . ] Suit has been begun
here for $20,000 damages by Janausehok , the
actress , against Henry Hull , of the Perry
house. The hotel adjoins the opera house
and on May 17 last the actress and her com
pany , while here , made the Perry house
their headquarters. Shortly before midnight
Mine. Janauschok loft her room to go to that
of Mr. Garden , who she lestillcd was ill.
She was there but a few minutes , and en
tered a corridor which she says was not
lighted and walked as she supposed towards
her room , but really towards a stairway
down which she fell anil broke her wrist.
She says she has suffered great pecuniary
loss , sacriljcing all her engagements until
November-1 , and that she still suffered , being -
ing physically unable to raise her riglit
arm in any of her plays and has been com
pelled to give up the production of "Hleak
House. " Tim tes timony was in part berne
out by Alex. H. Stuart , of Brooklyn , finan
cial agent of Janauschck. Mrs. Henry Bull ,
third daughter-in-law of Mr. Hull , who is
not on friendly terms with the family , sur
prised her father-in-law by appearing on tlio
stand , swora that the gas was lighted , but
had to admit on cross examination that she
had written Mrs. Hull , Jr. , that Janauschek's
friends had offered her M.OOO to testify. A
letter was produced from her to Hull , in
which she also declared Lthut Janauschek's
representatives were trying to induce her to
testify. Tlio witness created a bad Imprest
sion. Messrs. Abel and McKee , of New
York , well known in sporting circles gave
evidence , declaring the gas was lighted.
They were in the house at the time.
Iron Found at Duluth.

to the Hiu. : ] While excavating for a sewer

which threw out several pieces of rock re
sembling llrst class iron ore , one of which
went through the roof of Hayviow house. It
was picked up and taken to the oftlco of A.
M. Morrison. Convinced of the value of the
specimen lie has carefully subinitlcel
it to the examination of exports who
state that the rock is as
rich in iron as is ofte'n found In the best
mines of Vermillion. Tlio de'lachod piece is
about six inches long and three inches
through and is of nearly regular shape and
is very heavy. How it got into the place
from which it was thrown i. a mystery , but

Pi-nth Calls a Fidelity Crook.
CINCINNATI , Jan. 5. Amnl Baldwin , late
cashier of the Into Fidelity National bank ,
died suddenly this morning at his residence
on Walnut Hill. Baldwin was indicted with
other officers of the Fidelity bank , but for
some reason his bond was placed at f 10,000
and ho was able to. sucuro bondsmen , and ho
has not been in jail. In the absence of spee-
Ulc information asito the cause of his death ,
the theory of suicidu is common among down
town people who are familiar with the family
and who know the mental trouble the
man has undergone within the past year.
The theory of suicide has no support what
ever from the fact of Baldwin's death. Ho
died from the effects of paralysis , Tuesday
night ho retired in his usual health , and yes
terday morning his family found him 1 ying
unconscious. All efforts to rouse him failed.
His physicians pronounced it a case if par
alysis. Hu never regained consciousness.
Baldwin was lifiy-elght years old.
