WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—Attorney General Olney, in conversation with; friends during, the past few months,; expressed himself as anxious to return) to private lifo and said that the -'drudgery and responsibilities of the position; were wearing on him. His private law practice is said to be worth from S25,000| to $40,000 and would bo greatly-in-j creased if he were free from official) troubles. It is said Mr. Olney, when, he acccopted the office of attorney gen-) eral, which he did with reluctance,' made it conditional that he might re-i sign before the expiration of his term' If ho found the duties distasteful. That] time it is said is near at hand. Mr.: Olney's relations with the president! are of the closest character ancj his intimate friends believe ho has re-i mained in the cabinet thus far at the, president's solicitation. N If Attorney) •General Olney tenders his resignation,' the possibility is suggested that AYm.| L. Wilson might be tendered a seat in the cabinet. This, however, is a math "ter upon which no intimation lias beeq had, directly or indirectly, from tho president. AN AUTOPSY ON A GORILLA. thq Scientists' Discoveries in Examining ' ISody of Gumbo. BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 9.—An autopsy -rjyas_hejd upon the body of Gumbo, tho .gorilla. Prof. Franklin Dexter of thq Harvard Medical school and Prof.Coun-j •cilmau, formerly of Johns Hopkins unn versity of Baltimore, now professor o^ pathology at Harvard, conducted thq examination.

Nov. 9.—Last white* this place became very pious and a petition was circulated freely asking tho cily council not to grant a 'license to a keeper of a billiard hall. The petition was granted nnd no such a resort has been found in the place for some months past and all of the billiard tables have until lately been stored away in barns and storehouses. But a reaction has now set in and a petition nskinsr that such resorts bo permitted is in circulation and is being as freely signed as its predecessor, with a likelihood that soon several billiard halls will soon be again in full blast in this place. One man has his place all fijied tip and on the granting of: the license will ooen his dooi-s. K, of P. Charity. IOWA.

NEW YOBK, Nov. 9.—A cable dispatch says: The annual circus provided by the city of London upon the occasion of the installation of the new lord mayor was witnessed by tens of thousands today. The turning out of the populace was the largest in recent years. Crowds of workingmen and women were massed at Fleet street, St. Paul's church yard and on the Victoria embankment, but there were no disorderly demonstrations and the scores of metropolitan police that were .stationed along the roate of the profession had little or nothing to do. The [various divisions included tho city firemen, the court of aldermen, tho life[boatmen, the foresters and detachments of the civic societies, together jwith a large number of promi::?nt citi- jzens, The cariago of the lord mayor was a gorgeous affair drawn .by eight snow white horses with postillions clad in livery of scarlet and gold. It was occupied by Lord Mayor George Robert Tyler, the outgoing official, and his successor, Sir Joseph llenals. Business along the route of the parade was generally suspended and the business .houses and public buildings were elab- prately,decorated.

It is not generally known that we have in this locality, very near the "Geyser," a paint mine, says the Townsend Messenger. We might say it is a quarry, there is so much of it. "One of our enterprising citizens, Joseph Blessing, recently took a wagon and shovel and loaded up with two colors (there are three or- four colors to be had) andibrought it home, pounded- it up with an old hammer, mixed it up with linseed oil and put it on his picket fence. He now has one of the handsomest fences in the slate— the upper part a rich old gold and the lower a beautiful maroon. The mine appears to be simply inexhaustible. This mine and the "Geyser," which is near it, were discovered, or rather located, about eighteen years aero by that veteran old timer and pri7ice of •good fellows, Nay lor Thompson, whom everybody knows and likes. It was shown to him in the first place by a friendly Indian chief who took a liking to Naylor, and assured him (Naylor) that it was the-source of supply for all •the Indians west of the Mississippi river and had been for centuries.-Those. were the days when Nay lor could draw his chair up to a table and sit down without knocking the table over—he •<vas very active. .Well, the Indians came .thousands of miles for this paint and< used to decorate their persons When on the war path; trails led from the mine in all directions, showing that it had been a natural center of meeting for the red men, just the same as the well known pipestone quarry of southwestern Minnesota. Naylor never made any use of the paint. He wus in the habit of reaching a h gh stato of exhil- eratipn at times when he would 'mount his broncho and let out a few yells and go in for'some fun—and then woe to the tenderfoot or anyone else who got in his way. At such ti tnes he was in for fun and nothing else, and a {Galling- guu would not make him change his mind when his neck was bowed. He would then paint the town in lurid colors, .but'he did not use any paint from the mine. He still retains his interest in the mine, and claims he can furnish paint in four colors, by the train load, sufficient to paint all creation. If anyone doubts this Naylor would like to see him. « • » WEAKNESSES OF FAMOUS MEN Many Geniuses Have Keen Deficient In Mental and Moral Health. Dr. James Weir observes that mechanical geniuses, or those who deal mainly with material facts, do not, as a rule, show any signs of mental degeneration. In proof-o^ this, says the London Public Opinion, one need only instance Darwin. Galileo, Edison, Maxim, Watt, Rurnsey, Howe, etc. It is only the genius of esbtlieticism, the genius of the emotions, that is generally accompanied by unmistakable signs of degeneration. Swinburne's poems show the mental bias of their author, who is described as peculiar 'and eccentric. Many of the men who have aided in making the world's history were victims of epilepsy, as ' was Julius CiBsaf, military loader, statesman and author, Many inen of genius have suffered from spasmodic and choleric movements, notably Lenau, Montesquieu, Button, Dr. Johneon, Hunteuil, Thomas, Campbell, Napoleon, and Bocvates. Suicide, essentially a symptom of mental disorder, has carried off many a man of genius, including such immortals as Chatterton, Blount, Hayden, Olive and'David, Alcoholism and morphinism are now recognized as evidences' of dogenera lion and have hud a» victims Coleridge, Sheridan, Steolo, Addipou PUftVles, Jlittmfy Bqrns apfl ma,ny, pjjhers.

AUSTIK, Tex., Nov. $i—-The official returns will be .necessary to decide whether the ' democratic or populist stato ticket has won. This morning tho chances appear to favor the populists by a small plurality. Tho same may be said of tho Second, Third, Fourth, Seventh and Uinth congressional districts, in all of which the result will be close with tho outlook favoring- tho third party. Tho populists havo unquestionably elected congressmen in tho Sixth. Jiighth, Eleventh and Thirteenth districts, while the republicans havo carried the Twelfth. Thus fat- the democrats have R certainty of. only one or two districts out of thirteen. KopnulU'tms Got Missouri by 10,000. ST. Louis?, Nov. "-.—Tho complete official returns this morning 1 from forty- 'ivo Missouri counties and the city of St. Louis, ollicial majorities from forty- iight counties and estimates based on .he vote for congress in eleven Bounties, a total of 10-1 counties out 114, give aggregate republican nnjoritles of -30.108 and aggregate democratic majorities of 35,11)7. This gives i net majority for the republican state ticket of 11,003. .Returns from tho ither ten counties will probably reduce -his a little, but the final official count by the state authorities will give 'the •epublicau ticket a majority in the neighborhood of 3510,000. Indications ire that the republicans will have i majority of 15 in the house of •epreseutatives and the senate will be ibout evenly divided. Official and semiofficial returns show the next delegation which will bo returned to con- jress from this state will consist of 10 republicans and 5 democrats, as' folows: First district, Clark, republican; Second, Hall, democrat; Third, Dock- cry, democrat; Fourth, Crow the rs. republican; Eighth, Hubbard, republican; Ninth, Treloar, republican; Tenth, Bartholdt, republican; Eleventh, Joy, republican; Twelfth, Cobb, democrat; Thirteenth, Raney, republican; Fourteenth, Mosley. republican; •Fifteenth, Uurtou, republican. Sheldon's Plurality io.OOO. PIEKRE, S. -D., Nov. 9.—Advices received at the state house this evening show Sheldon, for governor, to have about 10,000, and the balance of the ticket 15,000 plurality. /The republicans have surely elected 104 out of 126 members of the state legislature and possibly 108. Tho rural districts dis- .ppoiuted the populists in almost every instance. They figured that the farmers in the outlying precincts -would; vote the populist ticket'straight,•• 'but; the republicans polled their largest- vote in these same precincts. With rare exceptions they went republican almost unanimously. Holcomb Elected in Nebraska. OMAHA, Nov. 9.—Returns now atj hand make it conclusive that Holcomb's, plurality over Majors for governor will be 3,000. It is probable that Gaffln, fusion, for lieutenant governor, and Kent, fusion, for commissioner of public lands, will have slight majorities. The legislature on joint ballot stands: Republicans 62, populists 54 and democrats 17. This will elect either Bryan, or a straight out populist to the senate. Kern, populist, is probably elected in the Sixth congressional district. Tennessee Elects a Republican Gjovernoi NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 0.—That II. Clay Evans, republican nominee, has been elected governor of Tennessee is made apparent as the fuller returns are. received. A careful estimate gives him! a majority of 4,100. Those figures, it| thought, will be further increased tol 9,000 when the full returns are in. The report that Bentou McMillin had been defeated for. congress in the Forth district by Bpnton, populist, isi unfounded. Figures' are not obtaiun-, ble at present, but MoMillin is re turned) by a majority of at least 3,000. Owens' IMonds Alarmed. LEXINGTON, Ky,, Nov. 0.—Friends ot| lion. W. C.

How Bayard Views It. Nov. 9.—Hon. Thomas F. Bayard says 'that the necessity for pure democratic tariff .legislation was. never so great as now, Bills for free raw material should be passed immediately, giving the country a chance to see .the democratic idea of tariff in •working order two years before another national election. If this is done ho has but little fear that the verdict will , be saUsfwotory.
