"I must seize this opportunity to de
molish tho myth thut tho government Is
tho enemy of nny religion, worship or bu
llet whatsoever. The government takes
too high u Bland not to respect all and to
enforce respect far nil.
"I nm suro that tho clergy on their side
will understand this and will make It un
derstood by all Catholics. This under
fitandlug must havo as a basis a loyal and
romplolo obscrvunco of tho laws of the
country.
"I an convinced that the social pcaco
which you desire will becomo stronger and
utrongor for tho welfare of tho country
nnd Its Institutions, which tho country on

This evening I.oubot was entertained at
dlnucr by1 tho municipality. Responding to
tho sentiments of various speakers, he
congratulated Lyons upon not allowing the
"reviving enterprises of Caesurlsm" to gain
ii foothold there and declared that his con
ntunt preoccupation was to fulfill the
double duty of defending tho material In
tcrests of all Frenchmen and at tho same
tlmo preserving Intact tho "moral patri
mony of tho country." The greater part of
his address was devoted to a eulogy of
Curnot.
l'rior to his speech he announced thit

Vice Chairman W. J. Stone of tho demo

eastern headquarters, declined to give any
table tonight, saying thut all tabulated
statements wero Issued In Chicago. He
said, however:
I feel eontldrnt that William J. llrynn will
lie elected nresldent of the L'nlted States.
Tho sentiment In favor of Bryan has been nt the time was sure beyond any reason

will go democratic by over 25,OiiO plurality.
With tho Kolld vote of Now York and In

sure for Hryun bo will bo triumphantly
elected. It is useless to go Into the matter
of llgurcs and ns It Is not my province
to make ii tabulated statement 1 refrain
from doing so
I am going around a good denl among the

Chairman Benjamin B. Odell, Jr., of the
republican stato committee and republican
candidate for governor, In speaking of tho
situation In the state at the republican stato
headquarters today said:
The reports 1 have received up to today
Indicate a very much larger plurality than
my former esllmuto, I wish to say thut my
former Is Mia most conservative thut has
been made by any rcpubllcuu of sound po
litical Judgment.
Take, for example, Krlo county. Tho re
publicans of Hrtr county say they will get
lU.COO plurality there. Now, I do not claim
anything approaching that, us I make all
allowances for enthuslusm. After consider
ing all the reportB and tailing u conserva
tive estimate of them I feel contblent In
asserting that my claim of 100,000 plurality
'or the .ticket 1st I II holds good.
' Chairman AlcOuIro of tho democratic
state committee hus stated that McKinley
will not coma to the Bronx with GO.UOO plur
ality. This statement Is ridiculous. I state
now that every county up the state, with
the exception of Schoharie, will be repub
lican. lu making this statement I feel confident
that I lime underestimated rather than
overestimated tho strength of tho repub
lican vote In New York state.
Kxecutlvo Chairman James K. McGuire of
the democratic stato committee, mudo tho
fo lowing statement:
Bryun will carry tho state of New York
by u pluiallty of ro.ooo. 1 mnko this state
ment on the very latest reports and milk
ing allowances for zeal und hopefulness on
the part of the lenders of the vurlous coun
ties'. We will elect within one or two of our
present congressional representation. The
entire democratic state ticket will be
elected mid we will make large gains In
the nssembly. I have hud reports dally
since the lust two weeks from nearly overy
part of the state and every report shows
gains for the party up the stnte.

und If he cnrrles the stnte he Is elected
president beyond doubt.

Not In yenrs, in my opinion, hus such nn

of the state nnd tho total democratic vote
has been registered. Our reports show that
In the up-stato counties thousands of re
publicans have expressed tholr Intention to
vote the democratic ticket. I do not care
to give any figures, but I am very hopeful,
almost to thu extent of confidence, that

NKW YORK, Nov. 4. Tho Rev. Dr.
Charles II. Parkhurst at the Madison Ave
nue Presbyterian church this afternoon
took next Tuesday's election ns tho basis of
his sermon. It was Dr. Parkhurst's church
which Mr. aud Mrs. W. J. Bryan uttended
last Sunday when in New York. As Dr.
Parkhurst's toplo for today was announced
a week ago, tho church could hardly bold
tho people who came to listen.
The doctor Bald In part that patriotism
meant tho devoting of ourselves to our
country, rather than our country to our
Beves. No patriotic American could fall
to recognize as one of the perils confronting
America tho strained rotations existing
between tho two competing classes of our
population. He added:
After tho nresldentlul candidate who. to
a eonldtrablo extent, stands as the repre
sentative of industrial disaffection. Ins
been defeated as It Is said he will be Mm
situation no fur will not bo altered at all.
Thn, candldnto has not made the dlsnffen
tlon : It Is tho disaffection that has mudo
tho candidate. And there Is such an in
undation of It nnd In some of its Ingre
dients so rabid and Irredeemable an to
have succeeded In temporarily waterlog
ging a great political party that, when vcll
afloat and Its compass Jn good .working
order exists for benevolent and dlvlno pur
poses. It Is undoubtedly the fact that with
regard to this part of the country nt any
ruto that no consideration Is Jut now op
erating wdth t-uch tremendous effect ks the
consideration of the dollar. I want to say
purenthetlcully, though, that I nm not
speaking now of tho technical economic
properties of thi dollar I nm not a banker
or a political economist, and yet wlthmt
being either and being simply a preacher
of righteousness It Is axiomatic to say th'U
u dishonest dollar Is a national fraud und
that to Indulge In u dollar that makes bi
llevo that It is a whole dollar when It Ii
only half n dollar, would be to transform
our entire people Into .a great American
Ananias. Thut may not be the phrnsenlo,5y
of tho economist, but that Is the Mount

Tho conKresslonnl campaign hns reached

sold the republican membership would not

the republicans bus done u much n0nd,
for no one can point to a single Instnnco
where n republican member has been
o'ected by fraud, either in the votes east
or In tho count nfter thev were east, wMl
tho majority nf the democratic representa

v here the repuli'lcnn vote Is driven from

nrdpnn of tho democratic nntlonnl congres
Blonul committee tonight mode the following
statement as to the next house of repro
fccntatlvcs; Wo are absolutely certain that tho next
house will be democratic and we believe
that tho republican lendeis well know It,
many prominent republicans having ad
mitted It. The majority will be n good snfe
one, lit least twenty-live. This committee
lias not deemed It wdso to bo Into detailed
estimates showing the districts they are
conlldent of carrying, or those that they nre
maklnc n tlsht for. for the renson wo do
not wdsh to Invite greater opposition or
nrouse the republlcnns to concentruto their
forces In those districts wdiere our demo
cratic candidates nre making hopeful bat
tle. The wisdom of this must bo npparent
to every democrat nnd Is certnlnly appreci
ated by every Intelligent man.
The claim? of the rem A!' inns tbat-they
expect to curry the house by a decided ma

nent men of the partv have conceded for
some time past that the situation wns des

The Paramount Issue.
The purniuomii issue to bo foujjht out in the battle
of J!)U0 may bo suiiiineil up in live small words, Do yon
want a change?
This is the simple question that every citizen will
ask himself before lie casts his ballot and the verdict
will depend upon the conclusion reached by a majority
of the 10,000,000 voters who will record themselves on
one side or the other next November.
It cannot be gainsaid that the American people are
as prosperous ami well-to-do this year as .they ever have
been. Do the American people want a change? ,
Do the American fanners, whoso products are in
steady demand at good prices at home and abroad, want
a change?
Do the merchants nml tradesmen of the country,
who are doing a larger business in the aggregate than
ever before, want a change?
Do the manufacturers ami employers of labor in
mill and factory, whose products are marketable now
at fair profit, want a change?
Do the professional men, whose services command
higher remuneration than ever before, want a change?
"What would any of these classes gain by a change?
This is the poser which neither .Mr. Hryun nor any
of his chain pious will be able to answer satisfactorily.
They will talk about; the Declaration of Independence,
about the crime of 187,'5, about, the beauties of free silver
coinage, about the disastrous gold standard, about the
menace of imperialism nnd militarism and about the
rapacity of the trusts. Hut nil these subjects are over
shadowed by the question that dominates all men who
are constantly striving to better their condition, but do
not willfully and deliberately expose themselves and
their families to the risk of a relapse to the distressing,
hard times experienced before the advent of McKinley
and the ascendancy of republican policies that have
restored contidence, raised the national credit find set;

havo been on the legislative committee of
tho Stato Firemen's ussoclatlon for years
and so I urn very familiar with tho lawn
and proposed laws affecting tho volunteer
firemen. During tho last legislature Sen
ator Prout was a member of tho commutes
charged with tho duty of clearing up the
statute book of tho dead letter laws hy
tho Introduction of tho necessary curatlvo
measures. As member of such committee
Senator Prout introduced a number or
bills, among them being senate llle No. 135,
without careful examination, being assured
by their authors that they were almply
curative measures. When his attention
was called to senate file No. 139 and its In
tention ho examined tho section sought to
bo repealed bj It and ut oneo rose In tho
senate nnd mado nu explanation, saying
that ho had hem purposely misled Into
Introducing that hill und mado a motion
Hint lm ho Dermltted to withdraw it. His
motion was adopted, tho bill wlthdrnwn
nnd tho section remains on thu etututo
book uumolcsted.
"These fnqts were Incorporated in our
report to tho Stato Firemen's association
at its last session and by that body adopted.
Tho volunteer firemen of the stato ought
to be familiar with tho fact that Senator
Prout, Instead of trying to repeal tho law
Is In reality responsible for Its being re

NKW YORK, Nov. 4. The republican
national committee gave out today the fol
lowing final official ststciuent:
"On the evo of election the republican
national committee's forecast of tho resiiP,
based on nbsolutely authentic nnd unim
peachable figures Htid fuels, differs from
Its previous forecasts only In increasing
tho magnitude of tho triumph which Tues
day will bring for tho cnusn of natlou.il
honor oud prosporlty. All the uourees nf
the committee's Information, Including
many who aro unwilling witnesses, concur
lu IndlcatliiR tho conclusion that Tuesday's
election will prove a crltablo landslide
for McKinley and seal the doom of Hryun
and Ilryiinlsm forever.
"Tho prime cause of this Irreslstlblu and
overwhelming popular revolt agulnst tho
llrynn populist ticket Ih perfectly obvlou
It consists lu tho desire of tho people to
maintain tho prosporlty which they' have
enjoyed und now enjoy under tho policies
of tho McKinley administration nnd In
their well-grounded fenr of public calam
ity In case Ilryan wero to bo elected.
"Tho laboring man, bis wife nnd children,
remember tho poverty, mltsery und despair
which shrouded their lives In the black
years previous to McKlnley's Inauguration,
and they remember with gratitude tho relief
which hus como to them since then, with
abundant employment and largely Increased
wages.
"They listen now to IJrynn's luvltntlonr. to
throw awuy their ndvantuges, but tboy re
spectfully dcclluo them.
"The business men of tho Uulted States
remember what happened to them In those
dark yearB and thoy know what tho practical
result of tho election of 1800 has been In
referenco to tho rehabilitation and prosperity
of all llucH of commercial enterprise during
tho last four years. They correctly regard
tho proposition to endorse Bryan and his
free atlver and free trade theories as noth
ing short of lnsautty.
Farmer Will Not ForRrt Kvll I)n
"The farmers are not likely to forget the
evil days when they wero :cduiid to bank
ruptcy and ulmost to beggary, and now with
mortgages lifted, their farm products bring
ing greatly Increased prices nnd their homes
filled wdth comfort and Joy, they do not pro
pose to chango their conditions nt tho behest
of tho false prophet of 1S96 and tho an
archical agitation of 1900.
"All who havo remunerative work to do,
all who havo wages paid them and who hove
a business to protect and develop, all who
have money deposited In Bttvlngs banks or
Invested In homes of their own, huvo been
confronted with a threat tn reduce tlpi value
of their prosperity by ono-hnlf and have
been nsked to ratify this suicidal proposltloa
by their votes.
"As they constitute thn great mass of
the American peoplo and as thoy aro sane,
sensible and honorublo men, tho over
whelming majority for McKinley and
against Ilryan which Tuesday will record
Is thus accounted for.
Ivnoiv I'roierlty When Tliejr See II.
"Tho peoplo know that tho country has
prospered under MoKlnloy; that wngea
havo risen to n higher ruto than over be
fore; that employment 1b abundant for all;
that tho savings of labor havo Increased
half n billion dolhirH; that commercial
prosperity bus been universal aud com
mercial honor safeguarded against tho ad-'
voeatcs of repudiation and so they nat
urally hnvo decided to ro-clect him nnd
contlnun tho present conditions of pros
perity nnd safely.
"Tho commltteo's final forocast claims nt
least tho following states for McKinley:
California, !l; Connecticut, 0; Delnware, 3;
