BLAINE'S SFBRGHAT OP III 15 FARM.
It bad a Harked Effect Upon his Hear
ers Democracy Stirred Aboat
the Irish Vote.
Lob Angeles, Oct. 17. The supreme
court of California in the case of Raston
vs. Brown, being an application of anon-
partisan political factfon of San Fran
cisco for a writ or mandate to compel the
register of votes to place the name of
non-particiana on the municipal ticket
to be voted for next election, has decided
adversely to the plaintiffs on the ground
that the sections of the political code
providing for voting straight tickets by
stamping the ticket heading or the party
designation at the head of the ticket are
unconstitutional. The court holds that
the official ballot should be printed with
out the party designation of any party
at the head of the ticket, and voters can
only express their choice - by stamping
opposite each name or proposition voted
for, except as to the presidential electors,
who may be voted for by a eingle stamp
opposite the party group on the ticket.
Eaclv individual candidate's name, how
ever, will be followed on the printed bal
lott by the party's designation. . The
court is unanimous in the decision,
which is considered an important one
by all parties. . .
Blaine at Ophir Farm.
New York, Oct. 17. Mr. Blaine's
speech at Ophir farm has made a marked
impression, and is the chief topic of the
day. It is generally accepted, by the
democrats as meaning that an attempt
like that of 1834 wiy be made by the re
publicans to capture the Irish vote.
Mr. Harrity, chairman of the democratic
national committee, has anticipated
this, and several weeks ago organized
the Irish-American democratic union,
in whose ranks are a few Irishmen who
worked for Mr. Blaine in 1884. Strong
efforts are being made to nullify the ef
fects of Mr. Blaine's speech. -Ex-Mayor
William R. Grace and Congressman
William Bourke Cochran, both native
Irishmen, have given interviews in favor
of Irishmen voting with the democracy.
One effect of Blaine's speech has been to
change the betting a little. It is now
even on the national result.
Alleged Slave Ship.
San Francisco, Oct. 17. A sensation
al newspaper of this city prints a long
account of the cruise of the steamer
Montserrat, which arrived from Guate
mala Thursday, after having landed
there nearly 400 natives of the Gilbert
islands to work allegedly under contract
for five years to wealthy planters. The
account is written by a reporter, who
shipped on the Montserrat last April as
a sailor. The account declares the Mont
serrat is a slave ship ; that the natives
were sold in Guatemala for $100 each, as
the amount being taken in the guise of
passage money. The account shows the
islanders were got on board by question
able methods, amounting in borne 'cases
practically to kidnapping. The com
mander of the -vessel, WY H. Ferguson,
was connected with the other alleged
slave ship Tahiti, which foundered with
400 natives on board. The account adda
that of the 400 natives taken to Guate
mala two years ago only. 180 are now
alive, the others having succumbed to
disease. . . - . -
From Paddock to Fulplt.
Detroit, Oct. 15. Rev. J. Ardey, who
has won (5,000 in racing premiums this
year, has sold the last of the horses in
his string of trotters except a 2 :20 road
ster and has gone back to preaching. A
church in one of the ' Minneapolis sub
urbs has given him a call, and he ia now
there as a candidate. The salary is
$1,000, but the racing parson says he be
lieves he likes the pulpit better than the
sulky. The Michigan Methodist con
ference did not assign him work, not be
ing able to reconcile his horse proclivi
ties with the ritual. It is said he will
drive in no more meets. -
COOL AND DARING.
Clifford Cal-rerley's Walk on
Across Niagara Gorge.
Niagara Falls, . Oct. 17. Clifford
Calverley, the plucky young Canadian,
has broken the record in crossing the
Niagara gorge on a cable. Shortly after
three o'clock Saturday afternoon he
emerged from the Elgin house on the
Canadian side of the river, directly
across the street from, where the great
cable, weighing about a ton, was securely
fastened to the bank. He was clad in a
becoming suit of tights with a mack
intosh thrown around his shoulders, and
proceeded immediately to where he was
to start on his perilous journey. - He "is"!
a fine-looking fellow with dark hair and
moustache, and although only 22 years
of age a few grey hairs were to be seen
below the cap which . was set jauntily
upon his head.
As in times past, a great crowd of
people had assembled to witness a feat
which might result in the loss of human
life, and they were located at every avail
able point where a view of the cable
could be secured. The south side of the
railway suspension bridge was. black
with people, and all space was taken.
A large number of railroad men had also
been allowed to congregate on the ex
treme top of the bridge, and there
were some on the cantilever bridge. On
the American side the roofs of all the
buildings studding the banks between
the bridges were black with myriads of
small boys, and on the Canadian side, in
the open space near the end of the cable,
several hundred people had gathered.
As Calverley took his place ready to
start, bis manager, A. B. Ormsby, of
Toronto, addressed the crowd and briefly
stated among other things -that his feat
had never before been attempted by one
so young or of so little experience. He
said that three months ago tomorrow
Calverley gave his first public exhibition
of high wire walking, and now he would
attempt to eclipse all past records in
walking across Niagara river.' Mrt
Ormsby said that the'performanceof the
feat so late in the season might occasion
some surprise, but," Calverlev, was
anxious to establish a reputation'; fad if
he succeeded he would next yek ;ive
several exhibitions here,, while the large
crowds were going to and from the
At 3 :12 o'clock Calverley removed his
mackintosh, took his balancing pole,
which was a pine one 20 feet in length
with flags of the two nations on either
end, and started to either death or fame.
He seemed very cheerful, and showed
not the least trace of nervousness.
Asked how quickly he would make the
trip, he good naturedly inquired : "How
would nine minutes strike you?" Then,
while the crowd held-their breath, he
nimbly proceeded. ' It' was at" once ap
parent that he was more of an adept' on
the wire than Dixon, and that, barring
accidents, he would easily break that
gentleman's record. The cable, which is
910 feet long, sagged about 25 feet in the
center, so that when he reached that
point and proceeded toward the Ameri
can shore he must climb quite a steep
incline. Here he showed his great skill,
for he made the ascent at a double-quick
gait, and landed on the rock in the rear
of the Rapids mill in just six minutes
and eight seconds from the time of start
ing. Dixon's time in crossing at this
point was 14 minutes and 30 seconds.
A mighty shout went up as the daring
young acrobat stepped upon the rock,
after waiting only two or three minutes,
he again took up his position .upon the
wire, and proceeding out a short dis
tance executed several difficult and dan
gerous tricks. Returning, he crossed
the bridge and went out lor trie third
time on the wire from the Canada side.
and . repeated his performance there.
Among otner tilings ne lay. upon, nis
back upon the cable, hung suspended
from -it first by his hands and then by
his toes, and stepped over his bar. He
went through this exhibition for -the
second time here to enable ueorge .Bar
ker to take photographs of him in his
various positions. A conservative esti-.
mate of the number ot people who wit
nessed the feat is 3,000. - Some of these
A Wealthy Floridan Missing.
New York, Oct. 15. Otis Greye, a
wealthy resident of Florida, mysteriously
disappeared from his stateroom on a
Fall river boat and no trace of him has
yet been found. His disappearance is

surprise of everybody about the court
room, the change of venue in the case of
Frank Reed, charged with the murder of
George R. Trask, was denied by Judge
Holleman in open court Saturday. A
large part of the day was spent in read

to philanthropy exists and about an
equal number to the -exact - contrary.
Able arguments were made by District

the change, and replied to by Judges

the Trafalgar riot five years ago will re

is presumed the government will not

that if the home secretary prohibits the
meetings they will withdraw. The work
men's club insists en defying govern
ment prohibition. The promoters of the
affair are embarrassed by receiving an
intimation from the German and French
socialist club, notoriously of an anarch
istic character, that they will join the
ranks on the occasion.
