THE CHICAGO ELECTION
The Election Commission Finds a Judge
that Breaks Open Sealed Ballot
The Italian Government Building More
Cruisers Report that our Minister
has been Ordered from Rome.
Chicago, April 11. The board of
election commissioners met today ' for
the purpose, of taking up the canvass of
votes cast at the city election Tuesday.
The board proceeded to hear evidence
in the matter of the alleged misconduct
of Dennis Slieehan one of the democratic
judges of election. Harris, one of the
republican- judges, testified to Sheelan
breaking into the box after it had been
locked and sealed.1 ' '' ' J
Sheehan . testified " that the whole
trouble arose from the fact of wanting to
run things to suit himself and did not
propose to let democratic judges: have
any voice in the matter. He admitted
that he broke the box with a hammer
but he said it was with no intention of
fraud. ' '
, The investigation was then laid over
until after the completion of the canvass,
lii the meantime Sheehan was released
on bail. . - ; ... ,.
! The board then turned its attention to
the canvass of votes t after going over the
first'ward subject to revision-of certian
precincts', which ' was Objected : to, the
board adjourned until Monday morning.
' The result in this was as canvassed
showed a loss of twenty ; by- Cregier," of
five by Washburn,' and two by Harrison.

Washington i April .11, It is ' impos

tends to confirm the report from Rome
that the Italian government is about' to
give minister Porter his passports and
sever diplomatic negotiations, -e ,
Secretary Blaine declined to make any
statement touching upon the matter,
.s There is strong evidence, tending to
show that there is no warrant for such a
threat ori the part "of the Italian 'govern

FOR AN" FIGHT-HOUR DAI.
The Miners and Operators Fall to Agree.
Pittsburg, April 9. The interstate
convention of miners and operators came
to a inharmonious end suddenly this
evening. After a fierce battle of words
and opinions, further talk was declared
profitless, and an adjournment was
taken sine die. This action means prac
tically that the interstate agreement has
.been abolished, and the amicable and
harmonious relations which have existed
between the two classes for the past five
years are broken off, and may not be re
sumed. It also means that 75,000 mine
workers in the Ohio and Pennsylvania
regions will Btop work May 1, affecting
500,000 persons directly, a'nd hundreds
of thousands indirectly. Ar the mine
workers of the country will also demand
an eight honr day, the continuation of
work after May 1, now seems almost im
possible. Two of the great organizations
knights of labor and the federation of
labor are back of the men, and their
money will be at their disposal. W. P.
Rend, of Chicago, was the only one of
the operatives favoring . an eight hour
oay. ine oiners saia in sunstance they
could not stand it ; that the cost of pro
duction would be increased by it, etc.
After the adjournment of the conference
the miners held a meetinsr. and decided
to demand an advance May 1 , equivalent
to 10 cents per ton on the basis of an
eight hour day, failing in which a strike
win toilow. -
" '. THE RAILROADS BACK OF IT." "
: Late, tonight some of the leaders of the
miners stated thev were satisfied the
railroads of the countrv were back of the
operators in their fight against the eight
hour movement, and that the : fight
would extend tos the railroads also. ' .The
operators, in a , general way conceeded
that some western roads were support
ing the fight against eight hours, but de
nied any concerted move.., , , ,
A RUSSIAN EXPEDITION. .
Any Interference hy Italy Will be Con
sidered an Act of War. --
St. Petersburg, April 6. Russia will
consider as an act - of wat any . interfer
ence by Italy with the Russian expedi
tion starting in three or four ; days for
Abyssinia. , . Russia regards the. Em peror
Menelek as the independent sovereign of
mi fuucpcuucuk ui liu ii, auu win tolerate
no obstruction in dealing directly with
him. .The expedition is under the com
mand of Lieutenant Mashkoff, a very
determined man, : -of approved courage
and powerful: physique. .He is 33 years
of age, and has served two years in . the
army of the Caucasus. The second - in
command is ' a monk - named Tikhou.
The expedition expects to be about two
months on the journey. A substantial
habitation will be erected there for use
during the rainy season, and excursions
will be made in various directions to
gather scientific facts and make inquiries
as to the condition and history of the
people. -The expedition will remain
three years in the country, and make an
attempt to reach the great lakes from a
direction not yet attempted by . Europe
ans. It is this part of the programme
that excites English jealousy, and it is
feared may lead to underhanded attempts
to injure the expedition, or at least to
defeat its objects. .Lieutenant Mashkoff
is conndent, however, that with : the
friendship of Menelek, which he has
every reason to expect, he will be able
to resint any hostile attack.
The President of the State Alliance
Wants a Straight-Out Candidate.
'' Tallahassee, Fla., April 9. The sen
sation of the day is the publication of a
letter from President Rogers, of the state
alliance, in which he says: he cannot
support Dunn for United States senator
"because he is a national banker," nor
Call, "because he is not in sympathy with
the demands of the national alliance."
The letter appeals to all alliance legisla
tors (who number fifty-five a clear
majority) to unite upon a straight-out
alliance candidate. Over half the alliance
legislators are su pporters of Call .however.
Call does not favor the sub-treasury bill,
but is in sympathy with the alliance on
the other demands.

, New.YohkV Aprils. Among, the de
cisions banded down, by the board of
appraisers today was one in which John
Wana maker, of- Philadelphia, objected
to duties imposed on some dry goods.
The firm claimed that the goods were
not appraised at an actual market ' price
as required, also that the disallowance of
discounts was at variance ; with the
treasury regulations and the ruling of
the courts on the subject. The board
held the proper course for the importer
was to demand a reappraisement, not to
appeal from the collector's decision by a
pretext. - ---;.t . , -- , ? .,.,-, .

He Loved His Soldiers
There ' are many pleasant reminis
cences about the late Gen. Devens. One is
a reminder of his sensitiveness and kind
hearted n eaa. After the battle of An
tietain, in, which he had displayed great
bravory and ability, he rode up before
the Fifteenth regiment, which had suf
fered great loss in this battle, and asked
what the rsr-aJt had been. When told
What loss it had suiTered he broke down
.'.nd openly shed tears as he sat in his
saddle before his regiment. ' The furious
battle was not yet over, the roar of can
non and the rattle of maaketry was still
sounding, but the . brave general cried
before his men as he thought of his
friends who had lost their lives.
' His fatherly care and watchfulness
over his men was well known." He took
care to have as little loss of life as pos
sible, and looked after their health very
carefully. It is also well known that he
was very liberal to the soldiers with bis
money. He constantly drew on his pri
vate bask account to alleviate the wants
of soldiers in his company, and he also,
nsedtom-ge them to send their money
home, and would take it from them and
give them checks on the bank in return,
which titey could send home to their
families. After the war he was equally
benevolent to war veterans' in distress,
and many men have him to thank for
aid in their troubles. Worcester Oa
