Admiral Oherardl concluded to remain with tha I Galena until ater the excitement over the elections had subsided. The Galena will probably be here In about three weeks, j There seems to be no doubt of Hiopolyte's election, but the foreign residents are apprehensive that the trouble will break out airain j in a few months, owing to a lack of confidence In Hlppolyte and his advisers."

The report that Watson, Little & Cp.' . nrno. Jumbo, at i Knightsville, was surrounded ',by . striking miners yesterday, and the miners at work driven away, is not true. It is true, however, that intimidation has been resorted to by some of the strikers and threats made. There are fifty-four miners a work in the Jumbo .four having bet2un;this week. The capacity orthe mine is two nunured. but the way or ders came in for some months be fore the ' strike, not more than half that number could get steady work. The fifty-four now at work are busy and are making good time. There is about the same number of miners at work for different block coat miners in this vicinity, all at the opera tors-oner. 1 heir numbers are increasing. 1 his. of course, is a danger that the strikers have anticipated and guarded against so far as posHioie to uo so i ne nave praviucu a method of relief tor the extreme cases of destitution, by permitting all mines to start up that would pay last year's scale (5 and 90 Cents without asking the operators to sign a yearly scale. A Considerable number of min ers will go to work, or have already dome so, on the proposition. i All the bituminous and semi-block ' mines are running at their full capacity in this county, as well a in Greene, Owen, Sullivan 'and Parke Counties. The strike is on among the blocs miners exclusively. The report that Coxville mine No. 1 had been compelled to shut down because the trappers. or boys over fourteen years of age, had struck, tor seventy cents a day, against sixty-inree, la untrue. The minip is in operation. ' A mem ber of a soliciting committee savs there are now 5.774 dependents, and that tor tne past three days the average receipts in tne way of relief has been six cents, or two cents a day. The approach of winter makes their necessities greater. Still the miners seem confident of winning, while the operators are apparently pleased at the per cent, of miners who are going to work at their terms. Persimmon Brigade Reunion.

Hewpot-tlnir This torporatlon Light Bills Last Year, jH,000 Nearly 50,000 This Year. The Gas Company is a power in politics because it obtains contracts from the people's representatives and derives large revenues from them. Before the present contract were, entered into, the city paid annually about t?3, 000 for light. The immense saving which was to result trom the dicker which brought about the present contracts,- has no yet become vUib.e to the naked eye at least not in the light now at command. ' I act year the city paid HI, 731 .03 for gas aione, ; not including t'2.550 for the Station House, etc. It paid also $l.3!0 to the Vapor Liht Company, making ts.6l .W under a "relorm," "economical" contract! Look at the figures this year and guess what they will be lor the entire twelve months: Gas Company -orders to date. 127,231.53; vapor lights to date, j.6.60; electric lights to date, 1.b(j; total. 3x,io2 Oi and there is one-third ot the year to be beard from yet.

There are few or no improved streets; th roadway and commons are cut np witu gulches in many places, and we have little in return .lor the citv taxet which we pay.'- This ward is represented by Mr. Kelley. He voted lor the gas contract against a proposition to light all the streets ot the city with eiectricity for $39,000 and that the reason the people down there didn't want him in the Council auother term. And, by the way! it's just as well to cite the record on a lew gentlemen who are begging constituents to return them to Council, and who are en deavoring, to gloss over the bud spots in their public careers. They-are now claiming-that nere never was a proposition to light the whole ciy with electricity for 39.tj0.

There is rarely a fire hut has pathetic accom paniments. - Where the loss in dollars and cents is smallest the real loss is often greatest. Such a fireocenrred on Helen street, opposite Klngan's packing house, this morning. "K long, shabby row of frame tenements belonging to the J. 8. Carey Company, caught fire in one end, the rooms being occupied by "Shorty' Nevel with his wife, two children and hrs mother-in-law. The lire originated by a garment taking fire from the stove near which it was hung to dry. No one was home save the old grandmother and an inlaht cliild. and the tire when discovered was between the two. The old woman ran out, screaming, and assistance soon came. The child was rescued aiter its clothes were partially burned. A chemical engine amv-c on the scene and got the fire under control before the loss amounted to more than l0 or S4O0, covered by insurance. Neighbors rushed in and piicd the tew articles of furniture accessible into the street, damaging and breaking them Isadly.-Families in adjoining tenements hurrieid their goods pcn-meil out of doors, and everything was piled up in inextricable confusion, cov ered with dirt and mud and soaked with water from stray streams trom the hose.

Students- who drive to the- college at lrvington have; had merry time skipping the gales in time gone by. Some years ago there was a popular cutoff east of Jce Reeling s place, beyond the toll-gate, and through this the city students would pour.

Co v seems to have been running th South Side street department in behalf of himself, Truslcr and others who need to placate their constituents, for several days. Yesterday a street gang .went down tutu cue LIED worK, MrC into the Eighteenth 'Ward to do some repair oy was on hand when the men arrived, and he. immediately proceeded to take them tn charge, keeping ln view all the time the clinching of doubtful vote. . After the city -employes had been working under the Little Boss lor several hours, some ol th Republican in the ward began to object and started to the Street Commissioner' office to enter a protest against Coy being allowed to manipulate the city employes in the Interest of his candidacy. To-day the k.-nng of workmen has been moved out of Sim's ward, but It was allowed to remain there long enough to give Sim an Opportunity to have tho streets repaired ln front of the houses of persons w hose votes he wanted. . . In accordance with the established rule of years, the Street Commissioners' Department Is showing sign of invigorated life just before election. All the gang candidate for Council, whether Democrats or Republicans," must, have the Commissioner give them a little boost before election day, and there wiil be more hustling on the streets during the next three weeks than for the past three months. Truster, of course, will tet all the assistance from the street Tforce he wants, and Markey,-Coy, Burns, Pearson, Finch and others of the. gang will be yimong the 'ones . most favored.

Repairing has. also begun there. Another gangii working down on Virginia avenuc.mak-ing its way toward Truster's ward, and still anottk-r ia up on Indiana avenue wit ban eye to Pearson's distress. The pay-roll of the Street Department forthe next three weeks will be interesting. It won't be submitted to the Council until the campaign s fought.and it isn't likely there will be any effort made to keep' it down. i i- ' Pome of-the Republicans of. the Eleventh Ward who don't like -Robert Martindale are circulating all sorts of stories about his candidacy for Council. ; "These stories don't worry me," said Mr. Martindale to a News reporter last evening.

Mr. Fletcher did not . know I was a candidate nntil 4 o'clock on the evening of the primary, and then -he begged me to support Thalman. 1 know some ot the Republicans are sore because I am independent in mv Republicanism.
