Speaking of red-letter days, Tues

Tom Reed will not have to vote for
McKinley. He cannot get home from
California in time.
A room full of rabbits' feet will not
help Mr. Bryan to get lucky returns
Tuesday night.
Why should a lawyer of David B.
Hill's standing declare himself before
he gets his retainer's fee?
Abdul Hamid doesn't care a rap for
English sentiment. British bayonets
would no doubt move him, though.
Carlisle's staying qualities are all
right. He will be a power in old Ken

Mr. McKinley speaks of Mr. Hobart
as that "incorruptible statesman."
And Mr. Hobart lives in New Jersey,
too.
Wheat and the elevator boy ought
to be right in sympathy. They have
almost an equal number of ups and
downs.
Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, denies that
he has given up Illinois. He will do
that about 10 o'clock next Tuesday
evening.
Mr. Bryan wants but little in the
way of presidential terms, but he
wants that little worse than anybody
we know.
A whole lot of state committee chair
men who are talking very loudly now
will be very hard to interview Tues
day night.
There are rumors in the First and
Eighth wards that the $5 William is
making votes faster than either of
the other Williams.
The women are voting- in Wyoming.
What if the fate of this nation should
rest upon the vote of this little moun

Did it ever occur to the good bur

even if their favorite son is elected?
St. Paul candidates who are going
to get left this week should begin now
reading in the doctors' books about
what is best for "that tired feeling."
Mr. Bryan may not be wholly sup

hints that he will proceed directly
from the stump to the lecture plat
form.
Henri Mcissan, of Paris, Is in the

Maine, Vermont and Arkansas are

Bryan columns by some crazy statis

The vote of Chicago will be much

Statements of Leaders on Both Sides
Show Conditions Largely Fa
vor McKinley.
CHICAGO, Nov. I.— Chairman By
num, of the National Democratic com
mittee, returned to the Palmer house
headquarters this morning from a
stumping tour of Indiana. He closed
his speaking engagement at La Porte,
Saturday. In speaking of the general
political outlook he said: "The states
of Minnesota, Michigan, lowa, Illin
ois and Kentucky will cast their elec
toral votes for sound money. I hope
that Missouri will do the same, and
I feel confident that there is a chance
of saving Nebraska."
CLAIMING NEW JERSEY
Are Both the Chairmen— Legislature
Republican.
TRENTON, N. J., Nov. I.— The cam
paign in New Jersey has practically
closed, and the leaders of both the
Republican and Democratic parties are
claiming the state. Chairman Frank
lin Murphy, of the Republican state
committee, declares that McKinley will
carry the state by between 40,000 and
50,000, and that the Republicans
will secure the entire eight con
gressmen and seven of the eight
state senators. Nor would he be sur
prised if the lower house of the next
legislature was solidly Republican.
Col. L. Price, chairman of the Dem
ocratic state committee, claims the
state for Bryan by from 10,000 to 12,000,
and says that the Democrats will get
three or four congressmen, five state
senators and a majority of the lower
house.
Ex-Senator Winton, chairman of the
National Democratic committee, con
cedes the state to McKinley, and asks
all gold Democrats to vote for Palmer
so as to give a total vote sufficient to
permit hereafter the nomination of can
didates by convention instead of by
petition. The Republicans have been
aggressive throughout the campaign,
and prominent speakers have advocat
ed their cause in every locality. On
the other hand, the Fourth congres
sional district has been the only sec
tion of the state where the Democrats
have been active. This includes New
ark, Jersey City and Paterson, and it
was through this district that Bryan
spoke. Augustus W. Cutler is oppos
ing Congressman Pitney for re-election
in the Fourth.
DIVISION IN TEXAS.
Watson Contingent Makes the
State Somewhat Uncertain.
AUSTIN.Tex., Nov. I.— The campa'gn
which is now practically closed has
been one of the most exciting in the
history of the state for the reason that,
while the Democrats have been claim
ing the state as safe all along the line,
the Republicans and Populists, with the
assistance of the gold Democrats, have
been' making such an interesting fight
that it has kept the Democrats busy
beating the brush. Now that the elec
tion is within forty-eight hours, the
situation, while it looks as though it
was leaning favorably to Demorcracy,
is in such a position as to be proble
matic. The situation Is such that the
Populists hold the balance of power,
and whichever way they go will tell
the story, and in their present chaotic
condition they are the uncertain quan
tity.
Democratic State Chairman Blake
says there will be 500,000 votes cast in
the state Tuesday, of which number
Bryan and Sewall will get 275,000, Bry
an and Watson 90,000, McKinley and Ho
bart 125,000, and Palmer and Buckner
10,000. Blake also says that the Dem
ocratic state ticket will win by any
where from 50,000 to 75,000 majority.
Chairman John Grant,' of the' Repu
blican party, who has managed the or
ganization of the Republican party In
Texas, and is in touch with every part
of the state, figures the total vote
at 50,000, but claims from 205,000 to
210,000 votes for the McKinley electors,
and the Populist state ticket on the
fusion arrangement. Conservative poli
ticians figure out that of the 500,000
votes the Democrats atcsure of 200,000,
and the fusionists, comprising Republi
cans, Populists and gold Democrats,
are also sure of 200,000, thus leaving
100.000 votes as the uncertain quantity.
Of this number It U estimated that
MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 2, 1898.
most of It is a vest pocket vote that
cannot be placed, and it is therefore
very unreliable and cannot be depend
ed on.
The Republican leaders are arrang
ing matters so as to have the Popu
lists and silver Democrats waste their
strength between the Bryan and Sew
all and Bryan and Watson tickets in
the hope that by this means they can
get the Republican electoral ticket
safe in line. If they can be successful
in dividing the vote they will un
doubtedly get the McKinley electors.
As to the congressional list, Demo
cratic Chairman Blake is claiming all
thirteen districts, while the Republi
cans claim two and the Populists two.
It is safe to say that the Democrats
will win in all but two districts. The
Tenth and Sixth will go to the Repub
licans and Populists, unless a wonder
ful change takes place tomorrow.
LOVELY IN COLORADO.
Fusionlsls Agree Like a Young:
Couple lit Their Honeymoon.
DENVER, Col., Nov. I.— The campaign
in this state has been almost devoid of
interest so far as the national tickets
are concerned, as a fusion was early
effected between the Democrats, Popu
lists, Silver Republicans and Silver
party on presidential electors pledged
to Bryan and Sewall, and on congress
men Shafroth and Bell for re-election.
This combination, it is conceded, will
carry the state by a very large major
ity. The vote this year is estimated
at about 160,000. The supporters of
Bryan and Sewall claim for them a ma
jority of 100,000. The McKinley Repub
licans promise to show twice the
strength credited to them by their op
ponents. All parties, except the Mc-
Kinley, have declared for the re-elec
tion of Senator Teller.
Ex-Gov. Waite, middle-of-the-road
Populist candidate for governor, has
made an active canvass, but is not ex
pected to poll more than 10,000 votes.
LANDSLIDE IN BAY STATE.
McKinley Majority Fully IKLOOO,
Says the Boston Journal.
BOSTON, Mass., Nov. I.— The Boston
Journal has just completed the most
thorough canvass ever made of the
state. It shows the following probable
vote of Massachusetts for president
and governor:
National Ticket— McKinley, 281,819;
Bryan, 128,408. McKinley's plurality,
153,411.
State Ticket— Wolcott, 264,834; Will
iams, 112.208. Wolcott's plurality, 152,
--626.
Of the three hundred odd towns and
cities of the state, about 250 sent re
turns to the Journal, the figures given
including all these places and per
centages, reckoning on the missing
ones.
The canvass of Boston showed 43,000
for McKinley, 33,000 for Bryan, and
5.000 for Palmer. For Wolcott 45,000,
Williams 30,000, and for Prince 5,000.
This is a majority of 5,000 for McKin
ley and 10,000 for Wolcott.
Secretary Thomas Talbott, of the
Republican state committee, is
predicting a plurality of 140,000 for Mc-
Kinley in Massachusetts, and 160,000
for Wolcott. He says McKinley will
get 307 electoral votes.
John C. Lane, secretary of the. Na
tional Democratic state committee,
predicts a vote of 25,000 for Palmer
and Prince, the gold standard Demo
cratic candidates for president and
governor.
IN THE KEYSTONE STATE.
Doubt Only in a Few Congressional
Districts.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Nov. I.— The
campaign in Pennsylvania closed last
night with the meetings that were held
all over the state. Although the elec
toral vote has been conceded to McKin
ley from the start, Republican orators
have traveled up and down the state
making speeches in behalf of their can
didate. This activity has been largely
due to two causes. First, the fact that
the legislature to be chosen on Tues
day next will elect a successor to
United States Senator J. Donald Came
ron; second, the business men's na
tional campaign committee and the
leading Republican organizations in
the large cities have provided an army
of speakers and the means of holding
innumerable meetings all over the
state. The three leading candidates for
United States senator, Gov. Hastings,
John Wanamaker and State Senator-
Boies Penrose, have been on the stump
during the campaign and have spoken
in nearly every county.
The uncertain situation in several
FINISHING "TOUCHES" OF THE CAMPAIGN.
of the congressional districts is the
cause of much anxiety to the Republi
can leaders. In the landslide of two
years ago, the Republicans elected
twenty-eight out of thirty congress
men, but the chances are that this year
the Democrats will elect four or possi
bly six congressmen.
At the headquarters of the Republi
can state committee it is claimed that
Pennsylvania will give McKinley and
Hobart anywhere from 200,000 to SOO,
--000 plurality. The Democratic chair
man hopes tc keep the Republican plu
rality *below 100,000. The Palmer and
Buckner followers, under the title of
"Jeffersonian Democracy," have a very
active organization in the state and
Chairman Given hopes the ticket will
poll from 40,000 to 50,000 votes.
Mississippi Silver Congressmen.
JACKSON, Miss., Nov. I.— The campaign in
Mississippi may be said to have closed sev
eral days ago. The only interest was over
the congressional contest. There is no ques
tion but what every Democratic congressman
will be elected. This Is conceded by all
parties. In two districts the Populists made
a warm fight and will poll a fair vote. The
Democratic electors will be- elected by a ma
jority ranging from 30,000 to 40,000 and prob
ably more. The Populists will get about 15
per cent of the total. There is no fusion of
any kind in Mississippi.
HIGH CLAIMS IN ALABAMA.
Sllverltes Sny They Will Have 50,-
000 Votes to Spare.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. I.— Both
Republican and Democratic headquar
ters have been open today, and there
is hardly less activity than yesterday.
The gold standard Democrats have not
made any aggressive campaign except
In two districts. At Democratic head
quarters tonight Gen. Shelleck, state
chairman, claims the state for Bryan
and Sewall electors by 50,000 plurality.
This claim is based on ihe theory of a
large vote and large gains from Popu
lists and Silver Republicans. At Re
publican headquarters It Is stated that,
on account of lack of funds for cam
paign purposes, there IS no prospect of
the Republican electoral ticket being
elected. Chairman Vaughn, of the
Republican committee, claims 25,000
white votes for McKinley, which have
never been Republican heretofore. In
the Second dlstxiat the gold standard
Democrats and Republicans are sup
porting Tom Clark, speaker of the Dem
ocratic house, and his election is claim
ed over Stallings, the present member
of congress, a sliver Democrat.
MONTANA VOTERS LUCKY.
Politicians Have Left the State Se
verely Alone.
HELENA, Mont., Nov. I.— The cam -
paign just closed has been remarkable
for the absence of anything like vigor.
The Republican candidate for governor
met with an accident early in hia
speaking tour which compelled his
withdrawal from active work. The
Democratic-Populist candidate for
governor went to California to make
speeches, and Congressman Hartman
went East to make silver speeches.
He made a few speeches here, and Col.
Saunders. Senator Carter and others
made a few speeches for McKinley.
The Democrats and Populists had sev
eral speakers out, but large meetings
were not numerous on either side. The
fusionists claim Bryan will get about
two-thirds of the votes cast in the
state and the fusion state ticket about
the same. The McKinley Republicans
claim McKinley will get 20,000 out of
45,000 votes and that Botkin, Republi
can, for governor, will get more.
IN BRIGHAM YOUNG'S LAND.
Women Will' Vote— Bryan Has a
Lead In Claims Made.
SALT LAKE, Utah, Nov. I.— The
campaign has closed without any sen
sational features and everything is
ready for the contest at the ballot box
on Tuesday. It is estimated that the
vote of the state will b^ over 60,000, as
the women will vote for the first time
at this election. The chairman of the
Democratic committee claims Bryan's
majority will be over 40,000. that King.
Democrat, for congress, will be elected
by over 3,000 majority and that the
Democrats will have twenty-seven ma
jority on joint ballot in the legislature.
The chairman of the Republican com
mittee does not name figures on the
presidential vote, but says the Repub
licans will elect the congressman and
carry a majority of the legislature.
The chairman of the People's party
says the strength of the party can
not be estimated under the fusion ar
rangements. The parry expects to
poll a strong vote for Foster for con
gress.
YOUR CHOICE IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
Dead Certainty for Everybody and
Everything.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Nov. I.— South
Dakota is claimed by both sides with
equal confidence. Populist Chairman
L. M. Eastabrook, Democratic Chair
man J. A. Bowler and Chairman M. S.
O. Cherry for the free silver Repub
licans, all of this city, unite in claim
ing the state for Bryan by six to
eight thousand. Cherry claims that he
has two polls of silver Republicans,
the last showing 6,300- Bryan votes
sure. Eastabrook says he has two
complete polls to base' his estimate
upon, butt no poll as to the legislature.
He expects to carry the legislature in
all but six counties. Bowler claims his
poll en the Democratic vote shows less
than 3 per cent for McKinley. Na
tional Committeeman Kittredge says
McKinley will carry thesetate by eight
to twelve thousand. He says it is a
dead certainty. He says the Repub
licans will have not leAs than ninety
out of one hundred and twenty-six in
the legislature.
CHICAGO. Nov. I.— Both the silver
and the gold standard forces claim
South Dakota in their official forecasts.
Chairman J. D. Elliott, of the Republi
can state committee, estimates McKin
ley's plurality at 12,000, and claims 91
out of 124 members of the state legis
lature.
James M. Woods, chairman of the
Democratic state f committee, says:
Bryan will carry this state by from
3,000 to 4,000, and two fusion congress
men will be elected by small majori
ties.
ARKANSAW IS CONCEDED.
Repnbllcans Estimate Bryan's Plu
rality at 40,000.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. Nov. I.—Com
paratively little interest has been
taken In the campaign in this state,
the electoral vote being conceded by
all to Mr. Bryan, but the public have
eagerly watched political affairs in the
other states. Few speeches have been
made in Arkansas except by local ora
tors, the only campaign of consequence
being made by congressional candi
dates in the Third and Fourth dis
tricts. Congressman Idcßae and Mr.
Friedheim, his Republican opponent,
in the Third district, closed their cam
paign Saturday. Perry, Democrat, in
the Fourth, delivered his last cam-

NATIONAL DEMOCRACY'S GRAND OLD MAN.
The following- telegraphic correspondence explains itself. National Democrats were
amazed at the press report from Warrensburg, Mo., in which General Palmer was made
to advise them to vote for McKinley. The editor of the Globe therefore telegraphed to
General Palmer on Saturday, immediately following the publication of the Warrensbure:
message, the following: &
ST. PAUL.,' Minn., Oct. 31, 1800.
TO SENATOR JOHN M. PALMER, Headquarters National Democracy, St. Louis, Mo..
Associated Press quotes your speech at Warrensburg: as follows; «I promise yon, my fel
low Democrats, I will not consider It any great fault if you decide next Tuesday to cast your
ballots for William McKinley, although you may, if yon desire, vote for Palmer and Muckner "
National Democrats here disturbed, but do not believe report. Please telegraph me your denial
or confirmation of the above. National Democrats of the Northwest are with you to the last
* not ' J. G. PILE, Editor St. Paul Globe.
General Palmer was not at St. Louis, as reported, and the following- reply was sent
back: - -
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Nov. 1, '00.
J. G. PYLE, Editor Globe, St. Fault ; ,

Yesterday General Palmer sent, from Springfield, 111., the following- conclusive answer
to the slander upon him and upon National Democracy:

paign address yesterday and Waters,
his Republican opponent, will close to
morrow. The Democrats claim that
they will return a full congressional
delegation, but Friedhelm and Waters
do not concede their defeat.
The Democratic-Populist fusion elec
toral ticket will be elected by about
the normal Democratic majority, but
there is likely to be considerable
sc ratching Of the three Populists by
the Democrats. Chairman Armstrong,
of the Democratic committee, estimates
that Bryan will poll about 95,000 votes
in the state, and McKinley about 35,000.
Chairman Cooper, of the Republican
committee, estimates Bryan's vote at
about 80,000 and McKinley's at about
30,000 to 45,000.
SEW BALLOT IN LOUISIANA.
Bryanltes Expect to Carry Every-
thing in the State.
NEW ORLEANS, La., Nov. I.— The
Australian ballot system will be given
its first trial in Louisiana. The state
will give Bryan a majority of between
Ib.OOO and 20,000. The Democrats expect
to carry all six congressional districts,
but with an honest count the Republi
cans claim to have excellent chances
in the First, Second, Third and Sixth
districts. In the latter district Doth
Republican and Democratic nominees
are for free silver. It is claimed that
the Australian ballot system will re
sult in disfranchising a large percent
age of voter r in each political party, as
illiterate citizens will not be able to
prepare their ballots according to law.
The Republicans claim that this city
will go for McKinley. On the other
hand, the Democrats are confident that
when the returns are made up on the
right of Nov. 3, they will have their
usual majority of 10,000 or more in the
city and 30,000 in the state.
CLING TO THE NUTMEG.
Democratic Chairman Claims to
Hope for Connecticut.
HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. I.— C. R.
Flyer, of the central Republican stato
committee, makes the following state
ment:
A conservative canvass of this state just
completed shows a plurality for McKinley of
30 000; will probably exceed these figures.
State ticket will have a plurality of not less
than 25.600. Will elect four Republican con
gressmen by pluralities ranging from 7,000 to
12 000. House of representatives will have not
less than 200 Republican members of a total of
252. Indications point to a solid Republicar
S6MlfttC
Today Alexander T. Troup, chairman
of the Democratic state central com
mittee, said: "At the last meeUng of
our committee I requested the various
members tc report the situation In
their districts, giving estimates, the
very darkest for Bryan and the most
hopeful for McKinley. I wanted to
get down to hard pan. From these
estimates I have come to the conclusion
that McKinley will probably carry
Connecticut, but his plurality will not
be more thi^n 8,000. If these estimates
are correct and every Bryan man does
his duty, there is a reasonable fighting
chance for Bryan in this state."

ST. LOUIS, Nov. I.— The St. Louis

the Warrensburg meeting where Gen.
Palmer was quoted by the Associated
Press as saying: "I promise you, my
fellow Democrats, I will not consider
It any fault if you decide next Tuesday
to cast your ballots for William Mc-
Kinley, although you may, if you de
sire, vote for Palmer and Buckner."
This correspondent says that at that
meeting Gen. Palmer made no such re
marks. Gen. Palmer replied to the
question, "Shall we vote for you or
McKinley?" "Why, for me, of course."
STAND BY SOUND MONEY.
National Democratic Committee Ap
peals to the Party.
To the National Democrats of Min
nesota: Thursday evening, there was
published an open letter addressed fr.
the National Democracy of Minnesota
and signed by Thomas Wilson, Charles
E. Flandrau and others, in which ail
those considering themselves members
of the National Democracy of this state
are urged to vote for those nominees
for presidential electors that represent
William McKinley. Simultaneously
with the publication of thi3 address,
telegrams were sent from the Bryan
headquarters in this city to all sections
of the state which, as published in at
least one of the county newspapers,
read a3 follcws: "A circular has been
issued by tho gold Democrats in favor
ot McKinley and Clough intended for
the cities only. They have deserted
their pretended candidates and should
cc exposed."
Upon the authority of this telegram
the representatives of Bryan Democ
racy are freely stating from every
stump in the state that the National
Democratic committee of Minnesota
-ias abandoned its candidates and has
advised all gold standard Democrats
to vote for the McKinley electors To
the end that the facts of this matter
may be known, that the attempt to
lead astray the true Democrats ot'
Minnesota upon the one hand, and the
eh!« m ? \J-° ?l ,sre P r esent the author
ship of the address mentioned upon the
ether may be defeated, and that the
integrity of the National Democratio
organization may be preserved, we feel
curselves in honor bound to make the
following public statement:
Any statement or expression of In
ww« c at . this addres s ot Messrs,
T\ ilson, Flandrau and others was pre
pared or published with the consent or
knowledge of the state committee, or
of any official of the National Democ
racy of this state, is unqualifiedly
false and should be known to be false
by any man that makes such state
ment or expresses such inference The
officials of the National Democratio
organiza/tion repudiate that address
and denounce it as a scheme secretly
devised for the intended benefit of the
Republican ticket, and perpetrated at
this late hour in order that its effect
might not be neutralized by any
answer.
The officials of the National Democ
racy have, In good fath, waged such
campaign as the means at their dis
posal permitted, for their own plat
form and their own candidates— Gen.
Palmer and Gen. Buckner. They pur
pose to continue the prosecution of this
campaign as energetically as they
