Cincinnati, Ohio, September 11.
—Untied Stales Senator Plumb, of
Kansas, bas come to Ohio to take
part in the campaign, and regis
tered at the Gibson bouse, in this
city. In an interview be said:
“There is much depending on the
result of the October election in
Ohio. I fear that there is too
much confidence. Old-time repub
licans say that the state bas always
been republican in presidential
yeats, and can never bo otherwise.
Contenting themselves with this
feeling they do not organize.
Many of these republicans are like
Indians, they like to bold a council
and do a 'heap talkeo,’ but forget
to organize. 1 am not confident
about this state, but I am not alarm-

are doubtful stales tills time. I
am afraid ol the result in each.”
“Can their loss lie overcome by
the gain of any southern states?”
“No; I have.no faith in carrying
West Virginia. Senator Kcnna
thinks the democrats wilt carry it
by 18,000. I think about 5,000—
“Then the republican hope is in

“That’s about It.”
Foo Chow, the scene of the
recent great bombardment, has
been described as tbo Boston of
China. It has 800,000 inhabitants,
with half as many more in its
suburbs. It is a famous scat of
learning. Over 3,000 literary
graduates live there, together with
7,000 literary students. The city
is as famous for mendicants as
scholars, it is the paradise of tbo
professional beggars. The king
of these is worth $10,000—a vory
comfortabio fortuno in China.

A passenger in nn Arizona rail
road train was arrested by a Sheriff
for a minor oflcnse a short time
ago. Seoing a Judge playing
poker in the smoking car with a
brace of Colonels, the Sheriff pre
vailed upon him to stop the game
for a few minutes and try the pris-
oner. Tho Judge did so, lined the
prisoner $40, aud before an hour
had passed away had cleaned out
every Colonel on tho train. Then
lie played a little game with the
late prisoner, who promptly won
all the Judge's pile and set tip the
drinks for the crowd.
