THE GREAT FRAUDS ON THAT SIDE
Oregon Democrats Are Still Divided on the
LOTS OF POLITICAL MEETINGS NOW
New Yoek, Kov. L The Republican
Rational Committee gave ont this afternoon
an analysis of the registry lists of this city.
After a careful review of the situation they
have reached the conclusion that the Demo
. cratic vote will reach 170,000, or 5S.5 per
' cent of the full vote, which Is estimated at
91,000, and they will then have a plurality
of 65,00y, which is the most they can in any
degree of reason expect.
The analysis of the registery lists of the
City or New York says in part: "One of the
most Important facts is that the registra
tion for 1892 below Fortieth street, or in
that part of the town where the Democrats
are specially strong, is 3,601 less than it
was in 1888. Above Fortieth street the
registration this year stands 149,363,
against 122,274, an increase of 27,049, or
22.12 per cent. The entire increase in regis
tration, therefore. Is above Fortieth street.
Why the Republicans Are Confident.
"Comparing the registration by Assembly
districts as at present constituted with the
total vote cast in 1891 in these districts, the
fact appears that in the districts casting
heavy Democratic majorities the increase of
the registration over the vote cast is abont
25 per cent, while the increase in districts
giving a small Democratic or a Republican
plurality is about 37 per cent
"On tbe-basis of the natural increase over
the registration of 1888 there should now
be, on the registry lists of this city, 342,000
names, but there are only 309,830, and the
loss lies in the Democratic districts. In
those districts, however, there has been an
enormous amount of false and illegal regis
tration." At both headquarters the absorbing
question of the hour is arithmetic Fig
ures of all kinds are under discnssion, and
chiefly to-day, those of New York. At
Democratic "headquarters the managers
nave decided that the State will be carried
tor Cleveland by 20,000 this upon the
theory that the Bepublican majority above
the city will not exceed 85,000 and that
Democrats will carry to the Westchester
line a majority of 105,000.
The Necessity or a rull Tote.
These figures go upon the theory that a
full vote will be polled and no effort spared
to see that there are no laggards.
Some interesting figuring is being done
pnn the question as to which party will
suffer the most from the uninterested, and
Democratic managers figure it that the
Republicans will be the greatest losers
In the country dutricts. In the 32
titles of the State ihe .Albany Argus gives I
tne total registration ot .00,115 against
664,365 last year. The 30 cities outside of
Sew York and Brooklyn show an increase
Tr last year of 30,000. Ist year these 30
cities "gave & net Democratic majority of
10,000. Four years ago the net Bepublican
majority was 8,000.
Chairman Hahn, of the Bepublican
Speakers' Bureau, was gratified to-day over
the receipt of a letter from Dr. E. H. Alack,
editor of the Bochester, N. Y., VoUaUatU
The doctor has been speaking in Minnesota,
and declares that Harrison nd Beid will
carry the electoral vote, Nelson be elected
Governor, six out of seven Congressmen be
Republicans, and the Legislature, which
elects a United States Senator, be Bepub
lean. Doesn't Look Jlacli like Apathy.
As an evidence of the so-called lack of
enthusiasm, it was stated to-day at head
quarters that during the present week in
this State there will be over 3,700 Bepub
lican meetings held.
Begarding the general prosperity of the
country, M. L. Davis, of Dansville, N. Y.,
said: "A very large part of the lands and
village ana citv'lots and building in
everyone of the States have always
been held under land contracts
or under mortgage for purchase money, or
for money hired to buy other lands or for
money borrowed for business or specula
tion, I have been engaged in the land and
loan business for over 30 years, and there
has never been a time when a larger per,
centage of the land, village and city prop
erty in the United States was so entirely
free and clear of any incumbrance as in this
year ot 1892. In no country on earth do so
many of the people own the farms they live
on and the houses they occupy."

fraudulent registration against John Dono
hue, John Kearny, John H. Griffin, George
E. Holland and William Green.
Asslsstant District Attorney Wcllman

It was understood that Mr. Wellman.and
Superintendent Byrnes were considering
the evidence already obtained by the police

bribe "floaters" to register fraudulently
comes. It was reported that the police
have already traced this money to members
of the Bepublican' State Committee, and
that at least one of the members of that
committee will be arrested.

conference it is understood that the two
electors will send in their resignations to
morrow and the State Central Committee

Democratic electors resigned a week ago

the fourth elector refuses to resign.
Chairman Murphv, of the State Central
Committee, said: "I do not know whether
the electors will withdraw or not The
State Central Committee will not ask them
to do so, but I think it advisable for the
Democratic electors to withdraw in favor of

HARRISON WON'T TOTE.
As He Can't liar the fhonght-.oi'
Returning to Indianapolis
SO SOON AFTER HIS LAST VISIT.
The President Daily Engaged in Eeadmg
LETTERS AND MESSAGES OP SYMPATHY
FfECTAI, TELIQRAM TO TUB DISPATCH.
Washington, Nov. L President Har
rison will not go to Indianapolis to vote.
He cannot bear the thought of going there
again so soon after his sad visit of last
week. Private Secretary Halford, how
ever, will cast his ballot in Indianapolis
for the Harrison and Beid ticket Every
Bepublican officeholder from Indiana will
also follow Mr. Halford's good example,
and no stone will be left unturned by the
President's friends to secure a majority for
him in his own State.
It cannot be learned here whether the
President will do as Mr. Blaine did, and
secure a pair, or whether he will let his
vote go by default The President is of
course greatly interested in the outcome of
the contest, as his future political future is
involved,' but beyond chatting informally
with the few callers whom lie receives
nowadays he is taking no part whatever iu
the campaign. His lriends and the party
managers regret exceedingly the Presi
dent's enforced inactivity, but they lespect
his feelings, and since it first became knbwn
that Mrs. Harrison's illness would result
fatally, they have made no attempt to bring
him into the contest in any way.
Not Engaged In Political Work.
Since returning from Indianapolis the
President has held aloof from any political
work. He has glanced at the papers and
talked with such of his Cabinet advisers and
other friends whom he has seen about the
progress ot the campaign, but only in the
most intornial manner, xnis morning
Private Secretary Halford talked politics
with the President for awhile, and after
ward said that they were both feeling muoh
encouraged by the evident drift of senti
ment in favor of the Bepublicans, and con
fident that tne tictet would De carried.
Since Saturday night the President's
time has been wholly occupied with the
private matters necessary to be attended to
personally and with such routine work of a
public character the department officials
felt required to lay .before him. The trans
action of official business and consideration
of politics, however, cannot divert the
President from his recent great sorrow, and
it is of this he thinks and ponders to the
exclusion of almost everything else.
Heading and Replying to Telegrams.
All day yesterday and to-day the Presi
dent has been secluded in the private of
fice, carefully reading over the numerous
messages of sympathy which came to him
from all parts of the world on the day that
Mrs. Harrison died. These letters and tele
grams came in such great numbers that it
was absolutely impossible for them all to
be read until now. Last week Secretary
Halford looked them over and gave out for
publication the names of some of the more
distinguished persons who sent words of
sympathy. The President, however, felt
it to be both a pleasure and a duty to read
each message himself, for many'of them
must ha. replied to by him in his own hand.
Yesterday, therefore, the moss of communi
cations wa laid before bim, and they have
since claimed his attention in theMntervals
of his cessation from work on the matters
of official business piled upon his desk.
This reading over of messages of condol
ence is a very melancholy task, but the
President has assumed it with the same
willingness that marked his persistent de
votion to his sick wife, and apparently
without a thought that he is sacrificing his
own interests in ignoring politics for domes
tic events. -
The Message Not Yet Commenced.
The President has not commenced on his
message to Congress, yet, because the resnlt
of the election will probably have a ma
terial effect upon the tone and also the
scope of that document. In former years
he began work on his message about the 1st
of October. Alter accumulating certain
data he wished to use he called in his sten
ographer and dictated to him for several
hours at a time, at various- intervals, until
the message was completed. The President
talks easily and fluently for dictation, and
it is no more trouble for him to talk to a
stenographer than it is for bim to make an
oflband speech or write a letter.
About i. o'clock this afternoon, just as
the streets near the White House were
crowded with department clerks homeward
bound, the President and Mrs. McKee
started for a drive jn the family carriage.
The President looked pale and careworn,
and Mrs. McEee was heavily veiled. They
drove out Vermont avenue, in the direction
of the Soldiers' Home, where Major and
Mrs. Parker reside. The Parkers are prob
ably the most intimate friends ot the Presi
dent in thlif city.
The only visitors the President received
to-day were Secretary of State Foster, At
torney General Miller and General Balchel
lor, who has tendered his resignation as
Minister to Portugal. The latter said he
had a very pleasant conversation with the
President, although the latter showed con
siderable emotion when the death of his
wife was indirectly mentioned.
To-morrow will "be a public reception day,
but the, President has not yet decided
whether he will undergo the ordeal of
facing the crowd of visitors in the East
Boom at 1 o'clock.
TELEGBAPHERS WAKT M0BE PAY.
The Bijr Fonr Operators Ask for a 810 In

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. L A num
ber of representatives of the telegraph oper

jority of the remainder have signified their
intentions of joining.
This committee, while asking an increase
of pay, has also asked that the company
adoptsuch rules and regulatipns as are nec
essary to recognize the telegraphers as an

COAL STRIKERS STILL OUT.
Each Side Predicts That the Other Will

McKeesport, Nov. L Special The
river coal mine operators expect the long
continued strike of their diggers to fall to
pieces if the rain amounts to anything. One
of the operators stated to-day that at the
Aliquippa mines the men are .going back at
the re'duced price, and they claim to have
positive assurances that the surrender will
be general during the week.
On the other hand, three different officials
of the miners' unions declared to-night that
the strikers would be given the rate they
are standing for before the end of the week,
providing the rain was heavy enough to
bring a rise in the rivers.

Buildings Goes Up In Smoke.
Chicago, Nor. L Between 2 and 3
o'clock this morning great volume's of flame
and smoke were seen to issue from he
windows of the fourth story of the new
Chicago Athletic Club building. The club
house was supposed to be fireproof, but it
burned like tinder, and before a fire com
pany conld get on the ground the whole
interior of the structure was a seething
furnace, and in less than 40 minutes nothing
was left but the bare walls. The loss on
the club building is variously estimated
from $80,000 to $125,000. It was still in
the hands ot the contractor who had not yet
turned it over to the Athletic association.
The union carpenters who had been em
ployed on the building went out on a strike
only a few hours before the fire started.
The fires broke out simultaneously on four
different floors. The carpenters' strike was
in sympathy with a strike by the electrical
mechanics, who quitsome weeks ago because
the contractor refused to discharge non
unionists. The building to-day was the
center of attraction lor builders, con

was the first big new style steel framed
structure to suffer from fire, and curiosity

another, who was sure he could help me, but Hill
the sore kept growing worie. kept growing larger
all the time. I had another doctor examine it. Be
thought that perhaps the bone was affected, and I
had better go op to Albany. I had a good surgeon
examine It, and he said tbe bone was not affected,
and tbat It could be cured, but I had to sit with mv
foot elevated. A surgeon doctor, from the city of
New York, stopping at our bouse, said the same
thing. In September, 18S9, I was about my work
as usual, I went to put on something to ease the
pain, a stream of blood poured out. Got a doctor
as soon as possible. It was thirteen weeks and two
days before I went out of tbe house again. A gen
tleman boarding with us wrote yon for your book.
His wife had told me-what a wonderful remedv
CuncDRA was. and what it had done for her little
girl. I said to the udy, "I have a mind to try
CUTICURA.." She said. "1 nave some with me I
will give you." I commenced at once, and it wai
the first ointment that I ever put on that agreed
"with tbe sore. Then I telt encouraged, tor I had
used so many different kinds and received no good.
Then I got the Cdticcba, Cuiicoea Soap and
UtmcuRA Resolvent, aud the sore is entirely
healed, and has been for the eight or nine months.
I say CCTXCUBA cured me. I snail ever speak In
highest terms of It. as 1 think and know that It did
me a great deal of good. Wish more people would
