SMITH OVERWHELMS POPE IN THE
RACE FOR MAYOR.
The Republicans Defeated by a Ma
jority of 1,658 Votes—Names of the
Eighteen Aldermen from the Nine
Wards of the City-United States
Jacksonville, Bee. 18.—The election
to-day passed off very quietly, con
sidering the fortnight's stormy discus
sion. The total vote cast was 3,130. C. B.
Smith received 2,31)4, n majority of 1,658
over Pope. The Aldermen are as follows:
First Ward —J. \V. Archibald and David
E. St. John.
Second Ward-Benjamin Wright and C.
ThirJ Ward—Emanuel Fortune and W.
Fourth Ward—D. U. Fletcher and Philip
Fifth Ward—William Clarke and C. R.
Sixth Ward—W. M. Dennis and J. T.
Seventh Ward—J. H. Stephens and P. E.
Eighth Ward—Stephen Wiggins and
Ninth Ward—D. T. Gerow and N. Web
There are thirteen Republicans on the
hoard and live Democrats, twelve being
Knights of Labor. Five are colored.
The first citizens’ ticket brought out was
elected, though in several wards changes
were made to suit themselves by the resi
dents. The smallness of the vote surprised
•verybody, as about 4,500 names lire on the
lists' There are many good members of the
board and few objectionable ones. Now if
the Supreme Court decides that the election
is legal it will have a good effect. A crowd
gathered to-night and jollification speeches
Late to-night another complication was
added by the refusal of the City Clerk and
the Mayor to roceive the returns or to
recognize them in any manner. The In
spectors had possession of their boxes, and
took them to the Council rooms. An ex
cited meeting of those interested was hold
there, and the refusal of these officials de
nounced. Col. Ivouis D. Fleming said ho
thought everything was done legally, and
he saw no reason for this arbitrary action.
The Inspectors will remain all night in the
Council rooms and keep charge of the box
es. A special meeting of the City Council
has been called for to-morrow at 9 o’clock
to canvass the returns. Excitement runs
A RUNAWAY HORSE.
A runaway horse created some excite
ment on Forsyth street this noon. At the
corner of Pine the cart struck a telegraph
pole and horse, cart and driver were hurled
to the ground with great violence. The
horse was so badly injured that it was
killed, and David Plummer, the driver,
was badly bruised aad cut and it is thought
is injured internally. Ho was removed to
his home, six miles in the country.
There was a short session of the United
(States Court this morning. Observing the
nervousness of the candidates for Aldermen, |
several of whom were in attendance, Judge
Settle adjourned for the day after giving
attention to the following cases:
The demurrers to the bill argued and
submitted j'esterday in the cases of the
Passumpsic Savings Bank against E. T.
Williams, as administrator of the estate of
Mary A. Leitner et al., and the same
against E. T. Williams, as administrator of
J. E. Williams, et al., were overruled.
A decree of sale in the case of Annie Bab
cock, executrix, etc., against F. G. Linberg
et al. was signed.
In the case of Otto Wolff, trustee, against
F. Small et ah, the demurrer was sustained
and the bill ordered dismissed. This is the
case argued and submitted Saturday last by
J. R. Clrallen on a bill to set aside deeds of
persons to lands in the Charles Sibbald
grant, and opposed by C. P. and J. C.
Cooper and Fleming Danieh The court
meets at 10 o’clock to-morrow morning.
OUT OK MONEY.
As the appropriations for the payment of
witnesses and jurors in the United States
< Courts are exhausted and no money can be
obtained until Congress passes a bill to ap
propriate money to cover the deficiency, it
will be difficult to carry on the business of
the criminal part of the courts. There are
thousands of dollars owing to jurors and
witnesses for service last year. The Mar
shals and Sheriffs are all complaining that
they are in need of money, and Col. Bird
has been considerably worried over the lack

He Becomes Boisterous and Confesses
Pensacola, Fla., Dec. 13.—The steve
dore question, which has been a much
mooted one for the past two months, was
to-day finally adjudicated by the white
contracting stevedores agreeing to work in
each vessel one half white labor and one
half colored labor.
The committee of lawyers appointed by
Judge McLellau to examine into tne charges
male by Jeff Lowe, the murderer, against
J. D. Thompson, liis attorney, for neglect
ing his defense reported to-day in open
court. Their report not only exonerated
the attorney but spoke rather flatteringly
of the defense made by him under the cir
cumstances, not one of which was of such a
nature as would tend to mitigate the
crime or appeal to the sympathy
of the court. After this report the prisoner
was again arraigned for sentence, which
Judge McLellan pronounced, with all the
solemnity the occasion required, ending
with a prayer that God might have mercy
on his soul. After sentence was pronounced
the prisoner became boisterous. lie confessed
the killing, but claimed it was done in self
defense ; that a fight had occurred between
him aiid Henry Smith over a game of cards,
in which Jeff Lowe had won all t hat Smith
was possessed of, including his clothes, that
Smith was the aggressor, and that the kill
mg was self-defense. The prisoner finally
became so excited and violent in his ex
pressions that the Judge ordered the Sheriff
to take him to jail.

The City Council this afternoon fixed the

$ 1,600, so far as it relates to the city, and

Among the applications received to-day
at the executive office for allowance, under

Gen. James Longstreet, now of Gainesville.
The application showed that on the second
day’s tattle of the Wilderness he was struck

of the right arm, rendering him practically
incompetent to perform manual labor, and
leaving the arm substantially useless. The

A LYNCHING IN FLORIDA.
Two Negroes Who Assaulted a
Woman, Hung and Then Shot.
Dade City, Fla., Dec. 13. —A terrible
story of outrago and swift justice comes
from Owensboro, a few miles west of
here. P. D. Oberry lives in the country
five miles from there. On account of the
building of the Orange Belt Hailway, there
are hundreds of negroes roaming through
the country. Saturday noon two negroes
called at Mr. Oberrv’s house while ho was
absent. Entering" the house quietly,
Mrs. Oberry was overpowered and as
saulted, one keeping guard at the door.
They then fled. Tho woman managed to
reach her nearest neighbors and informed
them of tho terrible treatment she had been
subjected to. A posse of armed men soon
gathered and the trail of the miscreants
was taken up. The party searched all that
night. but it was late Sunday
before they found the black
wretches. While being taken to
the jail an armed and masked party, sup
posed to be Oberry and bis friends, took the
negroes from the others and strung them
up to convenient oak limbs near the road
and then riddled them with buck shot.
They confessed their crime before being
hung. The bodies were left hanging as a
warning to the lawless negroes who are so
plentiful at present.

Titusville, Fla., Dec. 13. —Cook, the
murderer qf Hoyt, has been sentenced by

appeal is not probable, and the sentence will

who insisted upon a recommendation to
mercy, and the Judge, who respected it.

Girls in Indiana VV r'te a Piece About an
Editor and Then Horsewhip Him.
Hammond, Ind., Dec. 9.—The Evening
Echo was started in this town by Porter C.
Towle, a brother of Mayor M. M. Towle. It
has been very personal in its reference to
affairs of local interest. A short time ago
the young ladies of the high school peti
tioned Trustee C. N. Towle, another brother
of the editor of the Echo , for a stove. He re
fused to furnish one, and Editor Towle, in
his paper, called the girls brainloss and
The Weekly Tribune published on Tues
day the following:
The editor of the Echo evidently imagines
every one but himself to have a silly brain. He
is nothing but a mass of conceit, and if you will
but notice you will perceive that he belong* to
the club-footed race. The secret of this is. he
has a soft spot In his head, and his bruins have
sunk into his heels. • B. B. “•
The authors of this were easily identified
as Misses Belle Gattone, Bertie Hammond
and Juba Holier, all of the best families here.
Editor Towle yesterday devoted two-thirds
of a column in the Echo to a reply. He did
not mention names, but he asserted that the
girls were of bad character and readers of
a prostitute’s paper; he designated the girls
as things, said tliey r wore long dresses to hide
their big feet, and were homely enough to
stop a clock.
The article created a sensation in the city.
The fathers and brothers of the girls threat
ened to execute vengeance on Towle. Hi a
young Indies of the high school were in such
a flutter of excitement that studies were
suspended, and nothing talkod of but liotv
they should punish their slanderer.
This evening at 6 o'clock Editor Towle
left his office to go home. He had
passed the Morton House, when he met
seven young ladies, members of the high
school, three of them the ones he had at
tacked. They' carried rawhide whips of the
cowboy pattern. Towle’s face blanched,
and he' turned to flee, but tbe gil ls formed a
circle around him so that his escape was cut
They then throw rod pepper in his eyes,
and the aggressive three little maids rushed
in, raised the horsewhips, and showered
blows on his head and shoulders. Towle
threw up his his hands and shouted:
“Don’t girls! for God’s sake, don’t!”
The three continuing the punishment
without mercy, he threatened to shoot
them, but the girls jeered him and applied
the whips the faster. Finally he broke
through the ranks, and made his escape.
He fled into Charles Cleveland’s yard, and
took refuge in an outhouse, locking t he door.
Here he remained while a great crowd
At last the coast was partially clear, and
he rail out arlfl got to his home.
One story to-night is that the girls are to
be arrested. Another story is that he has
gone West on ttie night train to escape what
he fears will lie more severe punishment.
Citizens threaten not to allow the Echo to
again come out unless a full and complete
retraction and apology is made to the y'oung
Leading citizens arc said to be making up

ELOPED WITH AN INDIAN.
How a Minister’s Daughter was De
ceived by a Bogus Spaniard.
Prom the Philadelphia Press.
Niagara Falls, Dec. 11.—News has
reached here of the elopement of a minis
ter’s daughter with a full-blooded Tuscarora
Indian, with whom she became acquainted,
under the supposition that he was a Span
iard. David Littlejohn, the Indian, has
been around the Falls for some time, doing
little work, but always being reasonably
well dressed. He had some education and
an agreeable manner.
The story told by' the girl’s brother, who
was here to-day, is this: His father, he says,
is Rev. Augustus Schwitzen. He lives at
Swarmsville, near Transit, in Erie county,
on the line of the New York Central rail
road. His sister, Paulino, will be 17 years
old in February. Hhe is a blonde, with
blue eyes, flaxen hair, and has been edu
cated by her father. Imst summer Pauline
came with some friends on an excursion to
Niagara Falls. While on Goat Island she
missed her companions, and, meeting the
Indian, asked him to assist her in looking
for them This he did and made himself so
agreeable that an acquaintance followed.
Ho told her ho was a Spaniard and was
stopping at the Prospect House with some
titled Europeans, by whom he was. em
ployed. The acquaintance ripened
into love and arrangements were
made by letter for the girl to elope
with the pseudo Spaniard. She left her
home dressed in her best attire early on
Monday morning and took the 8:18 tram at
Transit for Niagara Falls, going by wiiy of
Towanda. Some letters written by Little
john were found in her room and accounted
for her disappearance. Mr. Schwitzen
traced his sister to Niagara Falls and there
lost track of her. After making as thor
ough fin investigation as he knew how to,
he went home. This was on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Littlejohn went to Swarmsville
with the girl, introduced her as his bride,
and sought parental forgiveness. The in
dignant relatives of the girl had ascertained
that the man was a ne’er-do-well Indian,
who earned what money he had in some
mysterious manner, and they ordered him
out of tile house. He declined to leave un
less she went too, anil the result was a fight
in which Littlejohn was kicked and pounded
mercilessly. The girl tried to interfere,
declared that she loved the man. ami
would follow him whenever he went. Lit
tlejohn was kicked out and threatened with
tar and feathers if be ever showed his face
in the neighborhood, and Pauline was
locked np in the room. The girl said that
they went to Hamilton from Niagara Falls,
were marriedbysome minister, vvhose name
she falls to recollect, and stopped at a small
hotel. The certificates, she said, her hus
band kept. Pauline persisted that he was
not an Indian, and she still believes that lie
is well off. Her folks will try to have the
marriage annulled, although they think it
was a mock marriage. Mr. Schwitzen had
no chance at Littlejohn, and came here
to-day hunting for him. To those he
talked with at Suspension Bridge he said he
hail a revolver und would kill the Indian at
