New York, Nov. 1 The polls opened
promptly at 6 o'clock this morning in
every election district in this city, and the
work of voting under the new ballot law
began without delny. There was an un

Politicians of every party made unusual
efforts to get out a full vote, and get it in

requirements of the new law, proceeded
more slowly than usual, but with greater
steadiness, and at noon a greater propor
tion of the registered voters than is
customary at that hour had cast their bal
lots. The overcast look of the morning
caused some apprehension to the fusion-
ists, but as the skies became clear, their
hopes were renewed. The indications
were that the bulk of the vote would get

were llowed to go in the line. From es

Chicago, Nov. 4. The election in this
city today, though hotly contested, baB
been very quiet. The day opened cool and
clear, but the sky became overcast and
rain was threatened. Later the clouds
broke away and the sun aain appeared.
The polls opened at 6 a, m. and closed at
4 p. m.
The chief interest centered in the contest
for th shrievalty, between Congressman
Frank Lawler. Democrat, and James B.
Gilbert, Republican. An element of Inter
est was also injected into the contest for
the position of county superintendent of
public schools by the candidacy of Mrs.
Gen. Mulligan, who was the Democrat's
nominee. 'The little red school house,"
was the issue. Mrs. Mulligan is a Roman
Catholic, and her opponent, Albert G.
La ue, a Protestant, and the public school
question was U'ed for the purpose of turn
ing Democratic votes from Mrs. Mulligan.
The Democrats swarmed about the polls
from 6 to 8 a. m., voting rapidly and send
ing them up into the hundreds; but later,
when the sun began to shine, and the air
became warmer, the Republicans began to
arrive at the polling plaees. They held no
conversation with ticket peddlers, but
took from their vest pockets neatly folded
tickets, the contents of which no one but I
themselves knew. Men who had not been
to the polls for years visited them today,
and cast their bollots for the Republican
candidn' es. This was really the strong
point of the Republican side of the b illot. I
rho work had been done on registration
day. In short, Cook county has not had .
nu ejection in many years, 11 ever, wnere
the rich and aristocratic camo in such
numbers to vote.
Through an error in distribution, the
Republican ballots failed to reach some of
tho outlying wards at the opeuing of the
polls, and many voters were obliged to
come into the city to attend to their busi
ness without voting.
Owing to the agitation on the com
pulsory school question, and the uncertain
strength of tho ticket of the Citizens' or
Patriotic Sons of America, is duo tho
great extent to which the respective
tickets were scratched here. The so-called
Citizens' ticket contained only tho names
of native born Americans, and was made
up of nominees of the two leading parties,
with now aud then a Prohibitionist.
The count in this city and county w 11
bo made rapidly, and as tho polls close
early, definite estimates can doubtless be
mado by midnight. Throughout the state
the polls are open until 7 o'clock, and
many polling places are miles from tele
Eight precincts in this city give Gilbert,
Republican, for sheriff 1M3, Lawler, Demo
crat, 1,415. These precincts come from six
The first result of the election to be
known for a certainty was tho success of
tho proposition to increase the backing of
the world's fair to ten and a half million
dollars. Tho voto of tho city was practi
cally unanimous in favor of adding to the
fund already guaranteed $5,000,000 by the
issue of city "bonds and by means of South
park bonds, $500,1)00 more.
Chicago. Nov. 4. Chairman Jones, of
the Republican state central committee
claims that all the Republican congress
men in tho city have been elected, and
that in the Eighteenth (Morrison's) dis
trict, Lindley, Republican and Fanners
Alliance, will be elected over Foreman,
Democrat, the present incumbent.

although the weather was bad.
St. Lours, Nov. 4. The election is pass

new method of voting, an unusually large
vote had been polled up to noon.
Deep interest is being taken in tho con
gressional contest. Mr. Kinzie. the Re
publican candidate in the Tenth district is
running unexpectedly well in the city part
of the district. In the Ninth distritt,
Cobb, Democrat, and Prosser, Republican,
are having a close contest, and in tho

to be leading Charles F. Joy, Republican.
Tho Republicans, however, claim that Joy

Both parties claim the city ticket.
Nothing has been received from the in

IWDIAHAPOLis. in i.. iSov 4. Todny was
a perfect one for voting throughout thj
entire state. In this city there was a.
heavy vote early. Tho stringent provisions
of the new law prevented any considera
ble crowds gathering near the polls, and
ns a result, no rows were reported in any
quarter, and there were but n few arrests
for illegal voting. Taken as a whole, the
new system worked satisfactorily.

several friends about noon. He shook
hands with his acquaintances, and then
entered the polling room. He was less
than a minute in the Dollint? booth. IToon

To which the president responded with a
smile: "Yes, and his vote just counts

gathered at tho train to tee him off.
Milwaukee, Nov. 4. When the polls
closed at 5:40 this afternoon, tho most ex
citing political struggle in tho history of
the city came to an end. Tho feature of
the day was the activity of the Catholic
and Lutheran clergy in marshaling their
forces against the Bennett law.
At the polling booth at the corner of
Greenbush and Mitchell streets, on tho
south side almost in the shadow of St.
Stanislaus Catholic church, two Polish
priests busied themselves in seeing that
each of their countrymen voted as
early as possible, and examined their
ballots to mako sure that they
were cast against the little school house.
Some curiosity was manifested in tho
Twelfth precinct of the Sixth ward, where
the priests had registered. About 10
o'clock they appeared, twenty-three
strong, headed by the father guardian. A
crowd gathered on the corner, while they
drew up on tho sidewalk and went into
the booth, one by oue. Each one was al
lowed to cant his bat lot without molesta
tion from the Republicans, as it has been
ascertained that they had all been natural
ized. Quietly as they had come they went
away, and there were twenty-three more
Democratic ballots in the box.
Most of the Lutherau churches held
meetings last night, at which Democratic
tickets were distributed. At the booths
the Lutherans would not have anything to
do with the peddlers. Some of them would
take anything that was put into their
hands and shove it into their pockets,
whore it was presumably left. Tho char
acter of the vote cast is consequently a
mystery. The Democrats claimed that
ever' Lutheran who appeared with tickets
in his pocket put in a straight Democratic
vote But the other side claimed just as
confidently that the reason why the Luth
erans acted so mysteriously was that they
wauted to fix up'tiie ticket's to suit them
selves without letting anybody know it.
The prohibition and labor votes generally
went to tho Republicans.

by at least 5.000 plurality. The Democrats
have gained two congressmen . at least.

Columbia, Nov. 4. From indications so
far, Tillman and his entire ticket are
elected and seven Democratic congress
men. The vote was probably one of the
smallest ever cast in the state.
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 4. Scattering re
ports from every section of the state indi
cate the election of Tillman, Democrat, for
governor by 25,000 majority, and the regu
lar Democratic state ticket by a large ma
J'ority, except in the coast counties, which
lave very large negro majorities. Frag
mentary returns from the various con
gressional districts indicate the regular
Democratic candidates have had a walk
over, except in the Seventh district, where
tho contest between Elliott, Democrat, and
Miller, Republican, is thought to be close.
It will be probably impossible to give the
Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 4. The electiou
todav passed off very quietly, with a light
vote in middle and west Tennessee, the
Democratic strongholds. Tho Australian
ballot law is working beautifully, barring
the fact that comparatively few negroes
know how to voto under it Buchanan,
the Democratic candidate for governor
virtually has a walkover over Baxter, Re
publican, aud Kelly, prohibitionist.
Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 4. Today's elec
tion in this city was the most quiet ever
held. The weather was fine. The polls
closod at 4:30 and, of course, tho Demo
crats carried everything. Nine wards out
of tho ten in Memphis city give Patterson,
Democrat, for congress 2,020 majority ovar
Chattanooga, Tenn.. Nov. 4. Chatta
nooga complete gives Evans, Republican
ior congress o&s majority over tnodgrass,
Democrat. Republican loss of 87T from
the vote of 18S8.
HELENA, Mont:, Nov. 4. Probably the
greatest effort ever put forth by the Dem
ocracy of this state was made for tho elec
tion of Dixon for congress, and supremacy
in the state. Chairman Daly, of the Dem
ocratic committee, claims a large vote for
Dixon in Deer Lodge and Silver Bow
counties. Ex-Governor White, chnirman
of tho Republican committee, at the closo
of the polls expressed confidence of the
election of Carter and a majority of tho
Republican state senators, based on ad
vices from Butte, Missoula and other
prominent points west of the range, in
Diron's part of the state. Indications
point to Republican majorities east of tho
divide, and confidence is expressed in party
circles nero of Carter's success in the
Bur.LiNGTOX, la., Nov-4. Tho day was
perfect and in that respect wjis greatly in
favor of tho Republicans, who claim a
greatly increased vote on that account.
The election in Burlington was quiet, but
vigorous, nearly two-thirds of the vote
being polled by noon. The result is still
in doubt. Conservative estimates places
Gear's majority at from 2i 0 to 1,200 in tho
First district. No returns yet.
Sioux Crrr, la., Nov. 4. Interest in the
election today ceutered on the congres
sional fight, but figures will be late. It is
the opinion, however, that G. D. Perkins
has a safe plurality in the district al
though Alison, Dem., has probably carried
the city by several hundred.
DENVER, Nov. 4. An unusally heavy
vote was cast here and throughout tho
state. The weather was warm and clear.
The polls closed at 7 o'clock and up to 8
o'clock not a single precinct had sent in
their returns. At the Democratic head
quarters everyone is jubilani, and Chair
man Arbuckle claims the election of the
entire ticket by 5,000, on the basis that 50
per cent of the registered vote has been
cast. Chairman Achley, of the Republi
can committee, while admitting th it the
state treasurer, attorney general and super
intendent of public instruction, are doubt
ful, is s tisfied that they would elect the
remainder of the ticket, including the
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 4. The election
passed off quietly. The weather was very

Democratic by increased majorities. The

Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 4. Returns from

CONCORD. N. H., Nov. 4. The indica-
itionsatthis hour are tnat tiiere is no
choice of governor by the people of this
state; tbatMcKinney, Democrat, is elected
to congress in tbe First district, and that
the Second district is very close, wiih
chances very favorable for Moore, Repub

Kansas Citt. Nov. 4. Dispatches from
all pomts in Oklahoma, indicate the
certain election of Harvey, Republican, as
delegate to congress over McCoy, Demo

from Kingfisher says that Harvey has
carried that county by about G60 majority.
A dispatch from El Reno says that Harvey

patch from Guthne says that Harvey has
carried that county.
ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. L Today's elec
tion throughout South Dakota has been
very exciting, and a full vote has been
polled. The excitement on the state and
congressional tickets, and the bitter fight
for the permanent capital, has brought out
every vote possible. The uncertainty of
the Alliance vote makes an early estimate
as to the result unreliable. Returns will
be compared with the vote ot last year, bo
far as the Alliance vote will allow.
Baltdiore, Md., Nov. 4. A dispatch to
the Sun says that McKaig, Dem., is prob
ably elected in the Seventh congres
sional district. He leads McComas in his
own (McComas) county by 100 majority.
Returns so far from the Fifth district

An indiscriminate exchange of shots be

MoyTGOMEIiY, Ala., Nov. 4. Election

A BIG STRIKE.
SCOTTDALB, Pa., Nov. 4. Ton thousand
meu, employes of tho Frick Coke com
pany, will lay down their tools Wednesday
morning for the reinstatement of Andrew
Verdoistic, the discharged Tip Top coko
works' committeeman. There is not tho
slightest doubt now in anybody's mind
but that tho mammoth striko threatened
will materialize. Tho miners obstinately
refuse the withdrawal of the not ce em
bracing their demand, whilo tho coke com
pany firmly maintains its position. Thoy
contend they are In the right, having in
their possession affidavits of workmen
showing that their course in discharging
iVerdoistic was fully justified.
The minors say they will not do as they
hove done in the post, and ask for a con
ference, but hnvo ngreed to confer if the
company makes the proposition. It is
definitely understood that should the
workmen struck$the Frick company will
immediately renounce tho existing wago
agreement. In tho event of this, matters
will be placed in a more awkward position
and a satisfactory settlement cannot be
lobked for. A long and bitter struggle is
anticipated. Tho Knights ot Labor have
openly declared their intention today to
carry tho strike to every plant in tho re
gion should it be necessary to inaugurate
the struggle at the Frick plant on Wed
nesday. AMERICAN CATTLE.
London, Nov. 4. A very determined
effort w 11 be made during tho coming ses
sion of parliament to secure the removal of ;
restrictions upon tno importation oi Aincr
ic in cattle, but there is little chanco of a
repeal of tno law affecting tho question,
owing to tho retaliatory feeling cngondercd
by the McKinley bill. .Mr. Chaplin, minis
ter of agriculture, is decidedly opposed to
any alteration, and the whole agricultural
population would resent the Introduction
of American cattle so long as the provis
ions of the McKinley bill remain unre
pealed or unmodified. Then again Mr.
Plimsoll's revelations concerning the hor
rors of cattle boots have not been without
effect, and nor only is it unlikely that the
restrictions will be unmoved, but in all
probability much more severe regulations
will be lain down concerning the importa
tion of cattle for slaughtering purposes.
A POT OF GOLD.
Kansas Citt. Mo., Nov. 4. On the old
Rupert homestead, just west of Argentine,
Kan., was found a pot of gold, Saturday,
and by actual count the pot contained
$5,000 in corns, ranging from $1 up to (20.
John Rupert and James Halloway were
excavating for a barn foundation on the
site of an old stable. Rupert's pick struck
something hard, and a few moments' work
disclosed an iron kettle with about five
gallons' capacity and covered with nn iron
lid. When the lid was finally knocked off
a shining heap of gold was revealed. There
were coins of various values, many of
them of dates preoediug the Mexican war,
aud none of them later than 1B34. Rupert
aud Halloway counted their wealth, and
found nearly 15,000. It Is believed that
the pot of gold was buried by the ownar
during the troublous border times just
preceding the opening of the civil war and
it is probable that the owner was killed.
LONDON, Nov. 4. British naval experts
are greatly interested in a very valuable
protection against the torpedo which has
been submitted to the admiralty. Its im
portance may be estimated lrom the iact
mat in someiuing un.e lour minutes tne
largest battleship in the service can lie '
protected from tne attacks of any number
of torpedoes, no matter how skillfully
they may be directed. The admiralty it
self rciuses all information concerning the
device, but certain experts describe it as
so simnle that tbe wander is it was never
thoncht of before. It will be submitted '
to a final test with the Victoria torpedo,
an invention of a young Victoria (New
South Wales) man, which Is claimed to ,
possess certain qualities which render It '
unusually difficult to ducern Its course. i
