Oct. 3L—Thore hav» been marked change* In political oonal- Uans in Fayette county wltnln the past 10 days. Democrats who were apathetic an& InAlftercnt but recently are thoroughly around and Intent upon winning now, and the Democratic strength is Increasing; dally. Th» first pronounced advance In the Democratic lines Immediately followed the Hastings meeting held here 10 days ago. It was not a great success from a Republican standpoint, and as soon as 'it was held Democrats who had taken no part Oegan falling Into line, and the Tarty has become aggressive, and there is a determination to win. The Democratic cause was aided greatly toy the visit of Colonel gingerly last week. The audiences which greeted him here and In ConnellsviUe were large and enthusiastic, and composed or representative Damocrata from all parts of the county. These went home from the meeting! oneouraged and full of fight. They bare been active since, and their good work Is felt In all parts of the county. Dally the number of workers Increase!, and all Indications point to a Democratic majority In the county. Congressman Sine, In the beginning of IU» campaign, had opposition which Memad formidable. It came from the large number which was disappointed in the distribution of the patronage. It looked tor a time that he would lose a large number of votes, but most of those who were disappointed are thorough Democrat*, worthy of office because of their fidelity to Democratic principles. Such never scratched a Democratic ticket, and they will not do it now when a great battle la being waged for Democratic principles. Not one In ten of those who opposed Mr. Blpe three months ago is opposing Mm »ew,_and-tbe number will grow this until election day. ave been classed as Demo- J vote against him ore very r who feel too much ttment to vote for against him.

This latter make up to loose from the So Lomtcr Prevails In Staunch Old Greene County. Spudkl to The ntutmiOt Pout. Waynesburg, Pa., Oct. 3L— I have been JUtlnsr some interest In politics In this ounty for the last 30 years or more. nd I never recollect having witnessed a uleter or less interesting campaign than lie present until within the last two or three weeks. Our Democratic majority • «o large and so reliable that after the rlnutrles are held and county candidates etermlned upon, the successful spirants deem It unnecessary make any further efforts ••cure their success In No- ember. This tends to make our cam- *l«m« quiet and less Interesting fluting the summer and fall. But the present mason this has been more than ordinarily ths case. Within the past week or ten days, LOwever, the Democracy appears to fce trou'slng from their lethargy and put- Ing tbemselves In readiness for the omtne; battle. We have tbt best and most reliable Democracy in the state. and though they sometimes appear lukewarm or Indifferent during the campaign. they make it a rule to do their uty on election day. They are a little Ingular In another respect— with very •w exceptions every man who calls ilmself a Democrat and participates In he Democratic primaries, feels in honor xrand to support the regularly nominated candidates of the party with the utmost integrity. Ana as a rule the few exceptions of which I speak, are men who have fat- upon the suffrages of the pemo- :ratlc party, and have come to think hey really own the party, and are badly disgruntled whenever they cannot .die-' ate all nominations and have every- hlng their own way. The chances bt Mr. Sipe for re-election appear to be growing brighter every day. A mbnlli or two ago I could hear of an 'occasional disappointed Democratic office- seeker, who was disposed to vote against Mr. Sipe in consequence of disappointment, but this, as far as I 'can earn, has mostly disappeared, and the rery men who were disposed 'to do so 'or this cause, seem to have discovered the bad policy, and in- iustlce of It, and have resolved to stand by the nominee of the party. Again, the old soldiers of the county very generally entertain a high regard 'or Mr. Stpe, because of his marked kindness and prompt attention to their wants and Interests. Besides this, Mr. Slpe is personally liked by our people without respect to party. He Is looked upon as a straightforward, frank and ilghly companionable man, who entertains a high regard for the people of Greene county generally, while the exact reverse of this is true In regard to his opponent, Mr. Acheson. It is my be- lef. therefore, that there are many Republicans of the more conservative and thoughtful class, who will vote for Mr. Slpe , and that he will run considerably ahead of • his party ticket In Greene county. p.

They f iKUwre that ICagee owns Acheton and , that the latter could not favor a free , river If tat desired to do so, because of * the opposition to It on the part of Ma•". COT. Mr. Blpe will proflt by the unholy ; alliance between Magee and Acheson. As » rule, Mr. Slpe's appointments • In this County have been good. Unfortunately he did not have enough offices . to reward all the deserving Democrats ' -who applied to him. But no matter how ". cood the appointments a congressman v.^mefces, .they are- a source of weakness rather than strength when the number of applicants largely exceeds the number of offices. In other directions Mr. Blpe has greatly strengthened himself and It look: as If his majority In Fayette this year trill nearly or altogether equal that of 1SS2, when be had 600 over Mr. Acheson. The latter lost no votes - In Fayette In 1893 on the Jones Issue, and he cannot poll as many votes as he polled in his former race. The other candidates upon the Democratic ticket will run up with Mr. Slpe in this county, some of them ahead ot him. £ ACTIVE AND VIGILANT. County Democrat t la Better Trim 1'bu Now. KpeclaUto The Pittsburgh Post. •Washington, Pa., Oct. SI.—The Democratic party of Washlnf-ton county Is well organized and will poll a very large •vote. The reaction has pet in, and the apathy which taut marked some other parts of the state has never reached • here. The registry lists show 20 m voters enrolled, and of these the Republicans claim but 9.000. The tndlca- - tions are that they will not have over J.WO and that Hon. w. A. Sipe will *ave a majority over Acheson Mr titpe Is personally known and well like* fcy the majority of the commltteemen He Is popular with the labor element •whilst Acheson Is unknown to the unions, save as their opponent. It Is said that during the past two years every union printer has been weeded out of the Washington "Advertiser" office, and the members ot the typographical union are not back-war* In making the fact known to other labor organisations. During his Incumbency Mr. Blpe has •won the regard sf the old soldiers by diligent attention to their Interests and they will vote for him. As boss of the county Acheson has 86 distributed thi county patronage that no old soldier has been appointed mercantile ap praiser, commissioner's clerk. Janitor or fireman, although several applied foi each position. This, combined with the forcing of Ms cousins on the county ticket when old soldiers who were bet ter qualified were seeking the nomraa ttons and were thrust to one side, wll lose him many votes which will go to the Democratic nomine*.

Attorney Charles O'Brleh, ot Htt»- burgr. who Is managing Mr. aipe's «am- nlgn, is hopeful the latter will win out. He Is conducting an aggressive coh- Leet, and Is a very busy mm these last lays oT the canvass. In speaking xit the was nominated, that the prospect «f his election was very'poor,' and that tberewM » great deal of dlssatlstaciloa oufcnont- th* district among these o had supported, him ta UK th»t would militate -agatftst his success; *ut nsny things have occurred since then to give assurance not only that his canvass is not hopeless, but also-that there are reasonable expectations of a repetition of his victory of 1*91 Such ols- satlsfaction as may Save existed'. In some portions of "his district has been appealed, and the candidate is receiv- ng the hearty support of all his Democratic constituents. In fact, the nearer we approach election the~ more the true party spirit appears, and the Democrats, whatever their Jlfferences may lave been, see the necessity of making Jielr best effort to hold the district for :he Incoming congress, and they are doing noble work In the district. "Acheson. who has been tolsted on the Republicans for the second time against their will. Is necessarily weaker than he ever was. and is certainly no more acceptable now to those who refused to support him in 1«92 than he was In that year. He has placated none of his ancient enemies, and has made Tew friends since he went down two years ago under a crushlns majority. "We have every reason at this time to believe that the success of Congressman Slpe, In his present campaign, Is well assured, and that the Twenty- fourth district will be represented by a good, straight Democrat in the Fifty- fourth congress." A PECULIAR ACCIDENT. William GKFBta Experience With • Gam Plitarc IB the Durtt. New York. Oct. Sl.-Mr. and Mrs. William H. Green, of White Plains, had a narrow rscape from death by asptjyx- iatlon early this morning. At 2 a. I m. Mr. Green arose to open the door for a boarder. When he returned to bed he struck the gas fixture In his roote with his head, but thought nothing of It. The blow turned on the eas. In the morning: Mr. Green's daughter knocked at the door, but received no reply, and, smelling the gas, she jiulcldr aroused h«r two brothers. When {Bey entered the room they found It fait ot gas. Both Mr. and Mrs. Green were unconscious. Mr. Green was soon restored to consciousness. Mrs. Green did not recover until late In the afternoon.

J. G. White, Esq., was In Clarion'coun- I ty last week campaigning for U» Democratic ticket, and deUverei a number of effective speeches. ^f > •/ The Sixth ward Democrats »f»- lho>- ougMy organized, and will make a good showing at the —" 1_. -..- -, . _ . > If all the facts were known, there are legions of workers in the Iron and steel trades In this section who are not the high protectionists they are commonly supposed. The men take a practical view of the matter, and In considering the results of the Democratic tariff re- orm, and. comparing the conditions be- ore and after, are beginning: to see ilalnly that the new tariff law Is not going to produce the evils predicted by he manufacturers, who eee a portion of heir enormous profits lopped oil. This was Illustrated by a discussion at the headquarters of the Amalgamated association yesterday. "The Republicans are doing a very bad hlng In sending John Jarrett Into West Virginia to speak against Wilson." said a labor leader. "Jarrett In the early 80s was- president of the Amalgamated association.-. He is now the agent of the manufacturers," and is employed to work against the Interests of the very men those cause he espoused years ago. Jnder such circumstances, how can tn« voters of West Virginia swallow whit he says? The Republicans are making a very feeble attempt to ad- vanc* their interests by sending Mr. Jarrett to bolster up their cause." "The truth, of the matter Is, the Wilson bill Isn't half as bad as people sup- poee," said another. "Is It not a fact that no reductions In the. iron and steel trades have taken ilace that can be attributed to the tariff, barring the subject of tin plate?" was asked. "It is true." "And Is U not the case that the workers had assurances from the manufacturers after the schedule was known that reductions were not necessary?" "Yes," was the reply. "The tin-plate manufacturers-were the only ones that requested any reduction, and us that is not deserved, we don't mean to al- ow It .By their own admissions they had a clean profit of $20 per ton before the passage of the new bill."
