GENERAL COXFIDENCF. IN A SOUND

C-RATS AND HKI'l BI.P AN9.
The campalgn ended yeeterday wlth an on*
shaken popular confldence in the atceeplng trt?
umph of McKlnley and Hobart. Republlcar.B and
old-fanhloned Democrata unlted ln the bellef that
nothlng could B)W prevent the electlon of the
Republlean Natlonal tlcket by a large majority
In the Electoral College and by an overwhelmlng
plurallty on the popular vote.
The aame confldence waa felt regardlng tho
trlumphant electlon of the Republlean candldatea
for Oovernor, Lbutenant-Oovernor and Juatlce
of the Court of Appeala; that almost a aolld Re
publican delegatlon ln the, LV'th CongresB from
thia State would be choaen, and not leaa than a
two-thlrda majority ln the Assembly. The opln
lon of well-poated polltlolans waa that the ma?
jority of Black and Woodruff would fall little
short of that to be glven to McKlnley and Ho?
bart.
A plurallty for McKlnle-* of not lesa than 250,
000 ln the State waa not doubted In the Republl?
ean and Sound Money Demoeracy, catnpi. Sar.e
Popocrata took a Birr.llar vlew of the situatlon
and practlcally thrcw up the spunge.
The only fear expreaacd at any of the eound
money headquartera yeaterday waa that the
seeming certalnty of vlctory might work diaad
vantagcously to-d:.y ln getting out the vote.
There waa apprehenalon that eome electora
might on this account not take the trouble to go
to the polla. For thla reaaon lt waa urged that
every bellever ln sound money be on the alert to
day to arouac the lndlff>rent and neglectful, If
any there be, ln thla tremendous crlsla ln tho
country'a hlstory, and that every vote be polled.
Mayoff Strong aald yesterday: "I have every
reaaon to belleve that the vote for McKlnley In
this State to-morrow wlll be by 200.000 the
largest ever eaat. Every man aeema Inaplred
with the feellng that he ought to make thla vlc?
tory the most momentous and memorable that
waa ever achleved at the polla. To aecompllsh
this every eltlren Bhould defend his country'a
llfe wlth hla ballot. Every vote for McKlnley
shouid be polled. Let none be lost through neg
lect or Indlfference or overconfidence."
"I waa born and brought up ln New-York
Clty," sald Prealdent Barker of the Tax Depart?
meni, "and I have eeen every uprlslng In the
last fifty years. My heart sweiled with patriotio
prlde when the defendera of the Unlon marched
from anl through New-York to take thelr places
at the front, but never before did I behold such
a day as last Sarurday. Beneath the sunllght of
a beneficent Providence and the wavlng of
mlllions of Amerlcan flags there was Insplred a
confldence In Ihe atablllty of our country and her
Instltutlona that must show itself ln the voting
to-morrow. It thrllled me wlth patriotlc ardor
ro that I not only Jolned ln slnglng 'Amerlca.'
but supplemented that by slngtng 'Pralse Ood
From Whom All Bleselnga Flow.' I have falth
to belleve that the rlgbt must prevall. that our
glorloua Institutlona wlll be preserved through
tne electlon of McKlnley and Hobart. I eaat
my flrst vote for Abraham Llncoln. I ahall be at
the polls early to-morrow mornlng to vote for
McKlnley."
Corporatlon Cour el Scott waa also eonfldent.
"Not ln many long yeara." he aald. "have laauea
whlch ao threaten the very foundationa of tha
Oovernment been preaented to the votera of tha
country. A man who fa!ls to cast hls ballot
to-morrow does not deaerve to retain the proud
litle of Amerlcan cltizen. New-York shouid roll
up such a tremendous majority agalnat Anarchy
and repudlation as wlll flll thelr advocates wlth a
deslre to emigrate, Wa feel sure of a great vle
tory for sound money, but this wlll excuae no
man from doing his duty at the polls."
"The splrit manifested in Saturday's magnlfl
cent celebratlon." sald Controller Fitch, "la aub
stantial proof to me that the electors of tha
country are aroused to the dangers whlch beset
the instltutlons of our country. so dear to every
Amerlcan. Yet I would appea! to every cltizen
not to neglect hls duty to-morrow. Let ua make
the result so overwhelming and declslve that not
Bgatn In our day. at leaat, muat we flght the bat
t!e for Natlonal integrity, for law and order and
civllization."
Frederic R. Coudert. presldent of the Manhat
tan Club, a member of the Venezuelan Commle
sion ar.d one of the best known and most lnflu
enttal Democrats ln the State, expressed hlmself
as followa:
"Evary man shouid vote as though the only
vote to be cast waa hls. I had intended to vota
for Palmer and Buckner. They are both excel
lent, capable men, .vell quallfled for the hlghest
offlces In the Natlon. and if I thought there waa
any chance of thelr succesa, I ahould glve them
my support. But. conforming to my prlnclple
that every vote shouid be cast as though lt waa
the decieive one. I thlnk I ahall have to vote for
Major McKinley."
Ex-Lieutenant-Oovernor Wllliam F. Sheehan,
since he publlshed his unanawerable reasons for
refusing to support Bryan and Sewall, aoon after
the Buffalo Conventlon, baa taken no part In the
polltleal dlscuaalona of the campalgn, but he aald
vesterday: "It ls golng le be a landsllde for Mc?
Klnley ln my Judgment. Nevertheleas. every
man who bellevea In eound money, In upholdlng
the Natlonal honor and ln the eupremacy of law
shouid not fall tc cast hla ballot."
