Very I''ftvorftlilo IndiuntlnnH For n Re-

House ItUhop
WASIIINOTO.t , D. C. , NOV. 14. I
AH was intimated would bo the casa in
these dispatches last night , orders have gone
forth from Senator Gorman , In command of
the democratic forces , to have n recount of
the votes In two of the Maryland districts ,
ono district In Louisiana nnd one in North
Carolina , whore the republicans have an ap
parent majority on the face of the returns.
Unless the democratic election ofllcors in
these states have lost their cunning the re
sult In each case will bo different from that
first announced , -and the democratic gov
ernors will , of course , bo justified in giving
certificates of election to tbo democratic
candidates. It Is thy law and the con-
Btlliltlon that each house ot con-
grcss shall bo tbo solo Judge of
J * the titles of its members to
their seats. But the original roll is
made up by the clerk of the present house ,
who Is n democrat. Only the members whoso
mimes he places on the roll can participate
in thu organization in the election of n
ftpeaker and the appointment of committees ,
nnd they uro entitled to vote mid to retain
their scats until the house , by n majority
vote , shall determine otherwise. If the dem
ocrats have the slightest excuse for making
up the roll with a majority of the members
of that party ( and of course the republicans
would do tbo same under similar circum
stances ) , the committee on election , to bo up-
pointed , can be depended upon to furnish
plenty of reasons to justify such action.
As the figures now stand the democrats have
n majority of ono in the house with
three districts to hear from , whieli
lire expected to return the republican candidates -
dates ; so that If expectations are realized
the republicans will have the meagro ma
jority of ono In the house. This the demo
crats expert tf > overthrow by a recount in
the districts of Maryland , now represented
by Isadoio Unynor and Barnes Compton.
The original returns from Kn.ynor's district
Bhow thnt ho was defeated by twenty-one
votes , while Mudd , tlio republican opponent
of Compton , claims only three majority.
The Maryland democrats under the tuition
of Senator Uorinnn are pretty good counters ,
nnil In these cases will doubtless succeed.
The Bamo may be said of tlio Louisiana and
and North Carolina districts , where
there are republican majorities of
sixty-three and ninety , respectively.
But thu republicans are not Idle , and
Senntor Quay i * doing a good deal of tele
graphing. Ho has also hent shrew d men to
each of those districts to look out for frauds

detectives about town for several days but

Tun BKB.J Lord Salisbury to-day nt a non
conformist-unionist banquet , referred to the
significance of such n meeting. A Miort time
ngo , ho said , It would have been Impossible
for those present to have met at n public din
ner. The change was o subject for
congratulation , bec.iuso it showed
the public the danger they had
to face , and thnt the object the were fight
ing for dwarfed all others. There was n
vast amount of opinion regarding Ireland ,
which they had no means of gaining. Ho
looked with terror nt the Insanity which hnO
ci7cd ICngllsh statesmen. The Glndstonlans
were Railiit g unuer scaled order * until they
arrived in the congenial zone of office
Whatever policy w. s then declared would bo
mndo consistent with some portion o
Mr. Gladstone's career. They were told to
trust to the generous instincts of Irishmen ,
but the weak are nlw.iys pushed aside , am
the Parncllltcs would not Do thrust aside b >
the sudden appearance of the re

man. Lord Hartlngton said that although
Mr. Gladstone hud attacked the unions ho
failed to answer their contention that Irish

To-Morrow the Victims Will Bu Hurled
Rurkliurt'H Guilt Clearly Proven.
WLXOVA , 111. , Nov. 14. Banker Howe nut ;
his wife , the victims of Charles Hurkhart ,
will bo burled on Thursday. Developments
nt the coroner's inquest went fur to provo
that the drunken assassin committed tha
deed in the hope of securing $1,001 which it
is said the banker promised to will to Sarah
Kichardson , Burkhart's step-daughter. H
wns also shown that the deed had been pre
meditated for some time , his actions while at
homo being of a suspicious kind , as tcstltlcc
to by his wife. Howe had feared Burkhait
for some time , and had advanced his domes
tic's wages to avoid trouble with her quar
relsome step-father. It is thought here that
Mrs. Burkhurt and her daughter knew
more about the murderer's schemes than
they nro willing to tell , and on that account
much Indignation is exprossoil. The body
of the double murderer and suicide will Do
shipped to Chicago. . It has been secured by
the Huhncmaun medical college , the dead
man's relatives consenting to such a disposi
tion of his remains. It is asserted on good
authority that Burkhurt was a mulatto , xvhile
his wife , who is a divorced wouian , is white.
He wns of powerful physique , nearly six feet
tall , and always bore a surly expression.
His reputation was always bad In this vi
cinity , and ho was thought capable of com
mitting any crime. It wns decided not to
send Burkhart's ' remains to Chicago until
to-day , when tbo cemetery association direc
tors refused a burial permit under all circum
stances. The triple tragedy is still the one
thing discussed here , and it was , no doubt ,
well that HnrUliart took his own life , for the
enraged cituens would have made short work
of him.

NEW YOIIK , Nov. 14. [ Special Telegram
to THE lic.l : James M. Dougherty , an
nwkard looking countryman from Salem , N.
Y , was a prisoner at police headquarters to
day. The charge against him is that ho has
admired Mary Anderson , the actress , too at
deutly for his own good. Dr. Hamilton Grif
fin , Miss Anderson's step-father , went to
police headquarters on the day after election
und advised Inspector Byrnes of Dougherty's
pursuit of the actress. A detective who was
present when Miss Anderson arrived from
Eurouo saw Dougherty nt the steamer , and
kept him under surveillance until yesterday ,
when ho arrested him. Inspector Byrnes
got at him to-day in the presence of
Miss Anderson and demanded nn ex
planation of his conduct. Dougherty said
he first saw Miss Anderson at Elmira. six
years ago. He felt that her heart went out
to him , and it was n case of love ut
first sight on his part. He tried to go to her
on the stage , but was restrained. She left
Elmira on the following day , und Dougherty
followed her hero and to England , where ho
bombarded her with letters of himself. His
money gave out nnd he returned here. He
had neb been in America long before ho
learned that Miss Anderson was ill , nnd ho
posted back to England with offers of sym
pathy. He chased her from Lon
don to Paris , buck to London ngaln ,
and thence to Liverpool , where he
had nn interview with her brother.
The Interview made him happy , and ho re
turned home full of the hope that bo and
Miss Mary were to be married ns soon as she
returned from abroad. Ho suld bis nrrest
was therefore a great surpisc to him. At
the conclusion of his story Miss Anderson
told him she felt sorry for him , but would
not marry him for the world. The poor
fellow looked surprised , but promised to
never trouble her If she did not make charges
against him. Miss Anderson bcgrd the inspector
specter to let him go , but Byrnes locked him

Joint ArkliiH on Cleveland.
NEW YOIIK , Nov. 1-4. [ Special Telegram to
Tim linn. I .John Arkins , editor of the
llocky Mountain News , Denver , Colo. , is
ono of the most picturesque democrats of
the fur west. Ho looks like n cowboy cav
alier , and is never at a loss for strong and
telling words in conversation. Throe years
ngo he gave to tbo public his honest opinion
of Cleveland. A reporter met him to-day.
Ho said that the defeat was just what might
have been expected with u man occupying
the white house who was not a democrat.
"You had a tilt with the president three
years ago , did you not ? "
"It was not a tilt , exactly. The president
simply snubbed mo in company with other
staunch democrats of Colorado. Wo went to
him in n civil way and asked him not to im
port into Colorado any officeholders from
other states. Wa reminded htm that the
democratic national platform said Miatifun
appointment had to be made it should go to
some ono in the state where the vacancy oc
curred. Ho had simply ignored the plat
form nnd appointed a very young man from
Virginia to a federal oQlco in Colorado.
We democrats who made the party
objected , und a delegation called
upon the president to remonstrate. He said ,
with ill-concealed Impatience , that wo could
wait. Well , the tables are turned , and now
the president can wait. I spoke my mind
freely then , because I felt that the president's
course would bring disaster to our party. It
was an unpopular thing to do , but I did it ,
and I do not regret , it. If ho had taken ray
advice he would not have led his party to
crushing defeat. "
"Do you consider the president a demo
crat ! "
"Democrat ? What has he ever done for
the party ? He is as cold ns a walrus on
n cake of Ice. He chilled the very life out of
the party that looked to him for comfort and
reciprocity. Ho courted his enemies nnd
kept them in power. In New York ho kept
thousands of republicans in ofllco. They , no
doubt , eheer.fully assisted to defeat him. Ho
catered to the mugwumps , too. He thought
they had power in Colorado. Ho sustained a
humiliating defeat. The state usually gives
a republican plurality , and this time It
amounted to 12,000. Hundreds of democrats
openly went to the polls and tore up the pres
idential ticket because they did not care to
vote for a man who was uot n democrat.
They simply disliked the president. "
