The Situation on the Eve of
HIGH CARNIVAL IN HOOSIEBDOM.
The Last Day of Harrison's Short-
Lived Fame—Predictions and
I Associated Press Dispatches to the Hebald. I
Indianapolis, November 5. —The last
day of the great campaign opened bright
and warm here. Many faces scanned
the heavens in conjecture about to-mor
row's weather. The hotels and streets
presented a holiday appearance. From
early morning till late at night crowds
were gathered in tbe hotel lobbies and
on the street corners earnestly discussing
to-morrow's result. About forty ladies
and gentlemen came up from Terre
Haute this morning, accompanied by a
fine band. They came to deliver as a
present to General Harrison the minia
ture of a silver-mounted plush chair.
designated the Presidential chair. They
also brought Mrs. Harrison a
valuable floral stand with Bilver
pedestal, voted to her at (he j
Germania Fair. General Harrison
made a brief response to the presenta
tion to him, after which, in behalf of
Mrs. Harrison, he thanked tbe ladies for
their present to her. General Harrison
was also the recipient of a large silk
covered sofa pillow, voted him as the
most popular candidate at the Methodist
fair at Port Washington, N. Y. Another
unique present that arrived to-day was
a large knotty cane taken from the
battle-field at Port Hudson, La., and
sent by Captain L. F. Ellis, now of
Lima, Ohio, who commanded a company
of New York troops. Mrs. Orner, of
Topeka, Kas., sends a fine engraving of
the gold medal voted General Wm. Henry
Harrison by Congress in 1818, tbe orig
inal of which is in General Harrison's
possession, having been willed by his
father to that son who should achieve
the greatest distinction in life. The
medal has lain in a bank vault in this
cityfor many years and is still there.
HOW THE RETURNS WP L BE REPORTED.
Extensive preparations were com
pleted this evening for receiving and dis
tributing the returns from Indiana.
The returns will be collected by
the Associated Press and Western
Union Telegraph Co. All compari on
will be with the Presidential vote of
1884. The first returns received will
show the result by precincts. There are
1773 in the State, an increase of five over
the precincts of 1884. As soon as twenty
precincts have reported the vote will be
added and sent as the first election
buileuh. Each bulletin i?i!! give the
exact vote of 1884, for the same precinct.
As soon as 20 additional precincts have
been reported they will be added to the
first twenty and the result will comprise
the second regular bulletin. Returns
by counties will also be sent in addition
to precinct bulletins, but it is scarcely
probable that any county returns will be
received before 1 or 2 o'clock Wednesday
morning, as the ticket in Indiana con
tains thirty-seven to forty names, and
under the law each name on the ballot
must be called off. This will necessarily
delay the returns. The polls open from
6 to 8 a. m. and close at 6r. m. No
counting is permittod, as in certain other
States, until the polls are closed.
The total vote of Indiana iv 1884 was
494,774, of which Cleveland received
244,990; Blame, 238,463; Butler, 8,293,
and St. John 3,028. It is conservatively
estimated that to-morrow's vote will
reach 520,000 to 530,000, showing a large
increase over 1884.
CENTERS OP LOCAL INTEREST.
Next to the result in the State at large
the greatest interest centers in this,
Marion county, and many local wagers
have been taken on the outcome. There
are ninety precincts in Marion county,
including the city of Indianapolis. The
vote for 1884 was: Cleveland, 104,205;
Blame, 14,433; Butler, 466; St. John,
After the Marion county vote interest
centers on the vote of the Second Ward
of Indianapolis, General Harrison's
ward, which in 1884 gave Blame 729,
Cleveland 229, Butler 9, St. John 11.
General Harrison's Precinct, the Third,
gave Blame 236, Cleveland 66, other can
TO INSURE HONEST RETURNS.
The Democratic State Committee has
arranged to also bring the returns by
precincts, and the Associated Press will
handle their returns, giving the totals of
every thirty precincts, and stating with
each bulletin that the returns are from
the Democratic Committee. Special
wires have been run into the Democratic
and Republican headquarters, and at
several other points in the city. General
Harrison will receive the returns by wire
at his house. ■.
A CANARD QUICKLY CONTRADICTED.
A report was in circulation here to
night, and was sent to many papers,
that Coy and Bernheimer, the Demo
cratic tally-sheet forgers, had been par
doned out of the Indiana penitentiary by
President Cleveland. Investigations
shows that the story is a campaign can
ard. Coy and Bernheimer have not only
not been pardoned, but there has been
no movement or petition looking to their
pardon. This statement is made upon
authority by tho Democratic Committee.
ESTIMATES ON THE RESULT.
Estimates on to-morrow's result in In
diana are widely apart. An Associated
Press correspondent obtained at a late
hour tbe following final estimates by the
Chairman Jewett of the Democratic
State Committee: Indiana will give
Cleveland and Thurman 10,000 plurality,
and Matson will be elected Governor by
a handsome majority.
Chairman Huston, of the Republican
State Committee—General Harrison will
carry Indiana by 12,000, and General
Hovey for Governor will be elected.
Editor Morse, of the Sentinel— My
estimate is 12,000 for Cleveland and
Editor Halford, of the Journal — I
have no estimates, but you may say that
in my opinion General Harrison will run
far ahead of the State ticket, and his
plurality in the State will be several
A NIGHT OF CARNIVAL.
Things were very lively around the
New Dennison Hotel tonight. The lobby
was crowded till midnight and the streets
for an entire square were filled with
thousands of zealous Republicans, dis
cussing to-morrow with great animation.
The colored people are among the most
demonstrative this evening. They
brought out the great Cumberland ball
and not less than 0,000 men pulled it
through the streets, cheering wildly.
At midnight the city presents a carni

val appearance; a comic band is march
ing through the streets, the members
wearing old plug hats and long linen dus
ters. They are greeted with cheers and
applauded at every hotel.
HOW THE CAMPAION WAS CONDUCTED.
Quite a number of stirring speeches
were made to-day all over the city, nota
bly those of Governor Gray and ex-
Senator McDonald. The Republican
Committee estimate that their speakers
made £0,000 speeches during the cam
paign, two thousand of which were under
the immediate supervision of the Com
mittee, and the others made by speakers
local to their section. The Democrats
made perhaps as many, but did not
have as many outside oratorb. The Rep
resentatives sent out 152 different kinds
of documents, of which 300,000 were
copies of General Harrison's record on
tbe liquor question, and also about as
many refutations of "the dollar-a-day"
The campaign closed to-night with a
procession and meeting in almost every
city and hamlet in the State. Here the
Republicans were addressed by Senator
Palmer, General Alger and other Repub
licans; and the Democrats by Post
master-General Dickinson, ex-Minister
C. V. N. Lathrop, Congressman Chip
man and ex-Congressmen Maybury.
Both the State Central Committees claim
the State; the Democrats by a plurality
of 10,000 and the Republicans by from
15,000 to 19,000 plurality.
HEFORG THIS jtlTl'!,!;.
The Outlook In California—Hood
San Francisco, November 5. —At the
rooms of the Democratic and Republican
State Central committees to-night, state
ments are made that all the arrange
mentß possible have been made for the
election to-morrow, and nothing can be
now done but to await the result. The
chairmen of both these committees were
asked by an Associated Press representa
tive for their predictions of the result of
the vote in the State and in San Fran
cisco for President and Vice-Presi
dent. General W. H. Dimond, Chair
man of the Republican Committee,
and M. M. Estee, Chairman of the late
National Republican Convention, stated
that their minimum figures, not counting
San Francisco, gave the State to the
Republicans by about 9,000 plurality.
Estee |naid in reply to an inquiry
that no p:edictioriS wonld be ventured as
regards San Francisco, as this city is apt
to be close, and either the Democrats or
the Republican party may carry it by
1,500 or 2,000 plurality. Chairman
Wm. D. English, of the Democratic State
Central Committe, states that the
most careful minimum estimate of
' tbe Committee is as follows:
Republicans from other parts of the
State are expected to come to San Fran
cisco with twenty-six hundred plurality.
San Francisco is counted on for a Demo
cratic plurality of at least five thousand,
thus giving a Democratic plurality in the
State of 2,400 or 2.500.
Estimates Placed on tbe Buckeye
Columbus, Ohio, November 5. —The
claims of the two State Commit'.ees as
to the result in this State are very far
apart, each claiming for its own Can
didate by a big plurality. 80..a state
ments have been given out ior several
days without change, and are said to be
based on a careful poll of the State. The
Republican figures on the general result
show a plurality of thirty-eight thousand.
To-night no one in authority is
to be seen at Democratic headquarters,
but the statement was out there several
days ago was that the Democrats would
have a plurality of 13,000 in the State,
and would gain six Congressmen. Judge
Thurman was called on this afternoon by
an Associated Press correspondent. In
reply to a question, he said he was no
prophet in election. matters; but he be
lieves with certainty and is hoping and
fully expecting the Democratic ticket to
ome out ahead.
Largely Decreased Bepublican
St. Paul, November 5. —At the head
quarters of the Republican State Com
mittee of Minnesota, it is confidently as
serted that the State is for Harrison and
Morton by at least 20,000 plurality. It is
claimed that Merriam, for Gov
ernor, will be elected but
by a smaller plurality. It is stated that
he will run behind the rest of the State
ticket. The success of the Republican
nominees for Congress in every district
is claimed. The Chairman of the Demo
cratic State Committee concedes the
State to Harrison and Morton by 15,000
plurality, which is a reduction of 20,000
on the vote of 1884. He claims the elec
tion of Wilson, Democratic candidate for
Governor, by 10,000, and the re election
of three Democratic Congressmen.
A Close and Exciting Contest Pre
dicted on tlie State Ticket.
St. Louis, November s.—The cam
paign in St. Louis closed to-night with a
big demonstration by the Democracy.
Saturday night the Republicans excelled
all their previous efforts during the cam
paign with a street parade and addresses
by several candidates, and to-night the
Democrats did likewise. Members of
the State Committee and leading Repub
licans assert that K. K. Kimball will be
elected Governor, while the Democrats
make counter claims for D. R. Francis,
their nominee. All admit that the con
test will be close and exciting.

A Thirty-Mule Team to Full tbe

Santa Barbara, November 5. —The
Republicans closed the campaign here
to-night with a grand parade. It was
composed of various clubs and a large
and imposing industrial procession.
One feature was a team of thirty
mules drawing tho largest wagon in

strong pull and a pull all together."
The line was a mile long. After the
parade a meeting was held in the wig

Baltimore, November 5. —Judge Mor

arrested and prosecuted unless actually

San Francisco, November s.—This

woman floating in tbe bay near Alcatraz

wharf and taken to the morgue. The
condition of the body indicates that it
had been in the water a long

from the head and upper and lower

The manipulators of the scheme that
was to alienate the Irish-American vote
beyond recovery or reconciliation sprung
it prematurely and made a clumsy ab

given themselves completely away and
played squarely into Mr. Cleveland's
hand.—[Washington Post, (Ind.)
