a time was hi. flanker of fracture. When
the polls opened a line extending half

This line waa composed of voters rf both
factions and .the greatest car we taken

Merrer people spoke to a single man In
the line. Policeman Ruiwll from time to
lime would call men known to be for Mer
cer oul of the line and lake them Into the
rolling place through the back door, where
they were permitted to vole ahead of those
who bad stocd In line fcr nearly an hour.
The anti-Mercer men proteMed against this
for the reason that It was a question of
time. It being Impossible to poll 1,000 votes
daring the time the polli were opened. Rus
sell admitted that he had taken men Into
the polling place through the back door,
but said that be had a right to do It. Later
In th evening a member of the force gave
himself and the board away. A voter of
the ward approached the polling place while
the count was In progress and was stopped
by the policeman. He protested and asked
to be admitted. The policeman was in doubt
and said he would see about It. The "seeing
about It" consisted in calling upon John
N. Weetberg. upon whose order the voter
v. as admitted. Total vote caet 908 Is about
half the republican vote of the ward. The
highest vote received by a Mercer delegate
waa, 489; the highest for a Pratt delegate

In the Seventh ward. where J. P. Breen
lives and Mercer claims to reside, the non
resident's vetax.-more than doubled that of

ae high In this 'ward, perhaps, as In any
wit the exception of the Fourth. Not un
til the last ballot of the congrenslonal con
test was counted did the tense feeling
which had' prevailed from the opening of
the poll subside. The crowd lingered un
til the Mercer-Breen vote was all In, but
there waa MM to. attract after this. The
remainder' of- the ticket ran about the

former, hands down.
The vote In ttie Eighth was one of the
largest. If not the largest, ever cast In
that ward, and when the polls were closed
at 7 o'clock a line of voters numbering
from fifty to seventy-five bad not yet been
able to cast their ballots.. The Mercer
ticket was uniformly successful In thia
ward by a majority ranging in the neigh

It Is understood that there -Is no present
Intention to order mom -warships to the

Governor Salaxar, who la the leading Co
lombian government representative on the

Shortly after 8 o'clock eighty blue Jackets
from the United States cruiser Cincinnati,
nrether with two tjulclt firing Colts, were
landed In Colon. This action Is believed
to be due to the receipt of creditable In
formation tbat a representative of the In-
urgent Herrera Is at San Pablo, a atatlon
on the railroad. , Under tnea circumstances
the government decided not to entrain the
troops for Panama; they will remain at

American marines were maintaining the
traffic from eea to sea.
A large force of Insurgenta Is said to be
quite close to San Pablo. If this la so
there Is likely to be fighting at any moment.
The returning special from San Pablo
will bring further news of the situation.

The huaband of the woman, a tailor of

Captain Titus waa asked what, if any,

that a man called at the house where the
Pulitzers lived on Tuesdsy. He said that
detectives were now at work on tbat end.
The theory of Chief of Toiler Murphy of

In New York and that the body was brought
across the river on a ferryboat, and tbat It
was taken to where It was found In a
wagon. The chief thinks that someone whe

Jealousy. He does not believe robbery wae

says that early Wednesday evening a man
entered the stable and aald he wanted a rig
that waa capable of carrying a large

which he asked for, were given to him. He

began blocking the front of the church, and
In describing It, he said: "I have wit
nessed many appalling sights, but the wild
srene at the head of these steps Is beyond
description. Wildly excited negroes rushed
to the top of the steps and began falling
headlong down the incline. Others were
pushed upon them and notwithstanding the
warnings from the outside the crowd con
tinued to push. In a few minutes the men
and women were plied on top of each other
to the height of ten feet. Presently a negro
womsn with a baby In her arms mounted
the mass and. climbing over the bodies,
leaped to the ground without Injury to her
self or tho Infant. As quickly as possible
a rescue party was organized, and as soon
aa the entrance was cleared began the re

Rev. Dr. T. W. Walker, pastor of Shiloh
church, eald tonight: "Shlloh church la a
modern brick structure and has Jnst been
completed at a cost of $75,000. There are
four entrances to the building and the main
one is sixteen feet wide. The deaths were
caused by everybody trying to rush out
ot tho main entrance at the same time.
Inside the church not a bench was over
turned and all of those who were killed
died In or about the entrance. The people
up near the front of the church were not In
Jured in the least."
Major W. M. Drennan, said: "Most of
those who were killed are strangera, but
their bodies will be cared for until ldenti

from Baltimore named Ballou.
"Ballou resented It and made a motion
as though to draw a gun. This, caused tha

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. So far only Oue

Great Britain to Germany to open negotia

White the utorv of the wonderful reeov
ery of John Hunter In the little town of
Chlco, Cel.. from paralysis and locomotor"
ataxia is still fresh in tbe mind of everyone,
an account of another equally remarkable)
and somewhat similar case come from
Near Northfleld. Minn., lives P. A.
O'Brien, known to everybody round about
the town. In the fall of 1900 he wag
obliged to give up work, because of dis
ease which one of tbe physicians who at
tended him called locomotor ataxia and an
other paralysis. He suffered for more than
three years and, for part of the time, lay
In a harness by the doctor's direction. He
grew worse and the physicians pronounced
htm Incurable. But at last, like a miracle,
came his cure. - Let him tell -the storyi
"It hsd been coming on slowly for right
years," he says. "A rold numbness com
menced in my feet and worked upwards.
It grew worse, and in November, . 1900, I
had to quit work. The disease bent ma
over, and, when I attempted to straighten
up, it felt aa if some one waa cutting ma
In the pit ot the stomach with a knife. I
always felt tired aud could not rest at
night, my feet felt as if there were needles
sticking In them and my legs got fo numb
tbat I could atlck pina in them and never
feel It. They would shake o sometime
that I could not hold them atlll with both
hands. , ..
"Then I got so that I could not walk and
I had to pull mysef around like a snake.
When I got exrlted my heart would palpi
tate and I would choke up. My kidney
also became affected and caused me much,
'Didn't the doctors help you?"1 waa
'No. One of them had me on my bed In
a harness for several months, but that did
me no good. They tried 'various things
and. at last, said I could not be cured.
Yes. I fooled them My sister saw ln
the paper how Mr. Peak of Milwaukee, Wis.,
had been cured of locomotor ataxia, and
upon her advice I began taking Dr. Wil
liams' Pink "PlllB for Pale People. The first
box stopped my pain so I could sleep good.
It was a week before I could move my feet
the least bit, but from that on I gained
pretty fast. I will never stop praising Dr.
Williams' Pliik Pills, tor they have made a
new man of me." '
The cure of Mr. O'Brien is only addtttonal
proof that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills' are not
an ordinary medicine. They are wonder
ful in their potency in nervous troubles,
small or great, and, as they are oh aale In
every drug store throughout the country,
they are within reach of all.' Because they
cured such a severe nervous disorder aa
that of Mr. O'Brien, proves -the power of
the remedy In lesser troubles, such as
sciatica, neuralgia. ' nervous headache, St.
Vltua' dance and nervous debility.
Dr. Wllllame' rink Pills have a double
action on the blood and on tbe nerves.' It
la not claimed, that the pills are a cure
all, but the very nature" of tbe 'remedy makes
It efflcaplouii Jn a wlder range ot diseases
than any other. It ia a scientific prepara
tion designed to cure 'disease through a
direct action on the blood and nerves. Im
poverished blood and badly fed nerves are
the cauae of nearly, every aliment th,t af
fect mankind. ; If tho blood ) kept pure,
rich and red, apd the nerves strong and
active, disease cannot obtain a .foothold.
