YVilson, chairman of the democratic committee, reports that his advices give Mitchell a majority of 20,000 over Barker (people's). In 13SS Flemings majority was 40,000. and in 1SOO the democratic, majority was 26,000. The election will 'prove a oreat disappointment to the leaders of the third party in this section, as they had anticipated a large vote from republicans, white and colored. Denis Eag-an, chairman of the republican state executive committee, issued a circular advising all republicans to vote the third party ticket But the leaders of the third party. who were fiercely radical democrats m their day, proved distasteful to the masses of republicans in the state; hence the vote did not materialize, and ;he people's party, judging from bul- etins now pouring in,' will not poll •or 0,000 votes—a result that will end to extinguish third party ideas in his state. The entire democratic ticket is chosen s follows: Governor, Henry L. Mithel-1; secretary of state, John L. Crawford: justice supreme court, K. Fenwick Taylor; attorney general, W. B. Lamar controller, TV. D. Bloxham; treasurer' C, E. Collins; superintendent public instruction, W. tf. Sheats: commissioner of agriculture, L. E. Wombwell. I'cid at Boston.

Whitelaw Reid, Gov. .Me- Kinlcy, of Ohio; Lieut Gov. Haile and JJon. JJoger Wulcott, the two latter being- the nominees for governor and lieutenant governor respectively. Mr, Eeid, upon taking the platform to speak, was given a most flattering reception by the large audience, which was quick to notice the sharp points of his address and'bestowed frequent ap- Dlause. Sir. Reid forcibly attacked the position held by the democratic party on the issues of the campaign and appEffled . to the people of Massa- chussetts to take refuge witliin the re publican stronghold. At the conclusion of Mr. Reid' peech Gov. McKmley was introduced le devoted the first part of his addres a discussion of the old state ban! ystem. The republican party, he aid, stands first for the protection nd encouragement of Arneri :an industries, and second for onest currency.

FOT A POSTAL TELEGRAPH. 3o:ac Things That Will 13o Contained In tho I'ostmastor Uonor.il'« Report. WASHINGTON-, Oct 5.—The forthcom- iog report of the postmaster general is being looked forward to with interest, particularly by the telegraph and express companies. Both fear Mr. Wanamaker may take an aggressive position in favor of a postal telegraph and a parcel post. The postmaster general will recommend in strong terms a postal telegraph, but will not touch on a parcel post, not believing it feasible at this time. Although he will not throw cold water on the project in his report, it is known that Mr. Wanamaker very much doubts the practicability of the pneumatic tube system. The postmaster general will not respond to the demand for one-cent postage. He finds that such a course at this,time would bo unwise. It would mean a loss, annually, to the government of something like 320,000,000 or 525,000,000, and it would be some time before the increase of business would make up the deficit The proposition to reduce ocean postage from five to two cents will not be indorsed by Mr. Wanamaker. He thinks domestic post- je should be reduced first. The progress of tlie postal service, Mr. Wanamaker will say, is tending in four directions. Mr. Wauamaker "believes the present generation will live to see all of them in successful operation. They are the country free delivery service, the house to house collection, the postal telegraph and the postal telephone. The country free delivery and the house collection now appear to Mr. Wanamaker to be almost within reach. The experiments made have been highly successful and in every way satisfactory. A s to the postal telegraph and telephone service, Mr. Wanamaker will say that their adoption is only a matter of time. With the adoption of the house to house collection Mr. Wanamaker wants to see the time when a man can write bis telegram or telephone message, put it in the letter box at his own door and get an answer without any additional delay. He believes the government could e-ive the people ton-cent telegrams and three-cent telephone messages. THE HOOSJJ5K STATE.. Its Tows. Furnish an Interesting- Budget of News. Xot Consider It Move. LIS, Ind., Oct 5. — Indiana, supreme court has refused to advance the suits to test' the gerrymander acts of 1SS5 and IS'Jl without further consideration. In the trial below the acts were decided unconstitutional. When the case came before the court Tuesday morning among the papers filed was a. petition by Morgan Chandler, joint senator from Hancock and Rush counties, asking that he be made a party ta the suits. He cited that he was elected under the apportionment of 1SS9 and held that he was entitled, to a seat in the cominR- legislature, having been duly elected under an act of the legis-- lature. Tuesday afternoon the case returned with an order postponing- the consideration of the motioir to advance. Mr. Chandler's petition to be admitted to the case was granted. The court also ordered that inasmuch as the case was one of great importance to the people of the entire state the attorney general should appear in their behalf. The action in postponing- the hearing- of the motion to advance is taken by the politicians to mean that the case", will not be decided before election. Col. Jnmce If. Klce De.ii!.
