IX SIBLEY'S DISTRICT la the 3IoMt Noteworthy Contnt Pend ing In Pennsylvania. PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 4 There have been practically no development? to-day in the political campaign in this State and none Is looked Tor beyond the always-to-be-expected last cards and the final claims to be made by the state chairmen of the re spective pirtiej. "Whatever developments took place to-day have been conlned almost entirely to put ting the finishing touches to the leaders' plans In those congressional and legislative districts where there are contests of any moment. The iwc most notable fights for Congress are In the Twenty-seventh and the Third districts. The former comprises Venango, Warren, McKean and Cameron counties, in tn? northwestern part of the State- Representative Joseph C. Sibley, who was elected two years ago as a Demo crat from this district by a plurality of 2,31 over C. W. Stone (Rep.), but who dur ing the recent tession of Congress an nounced his allegiance to the Republican party, is the candidate against Lewis Em try, jr. (Dem.) The tight here is a bitter one and the result Is doubtful. The Third district, formerly represented by th; Hon. Samuel J. Randall, is in Phila delphia, and Is the scene of another fight. Representative McAleer (Dem.) and Henry Burk (Rep.) are the candidates. Charges of police interference, repeating, false reg istration and all manner of political frauds are being freely made on both sides. Both claim victory here. In those legislative districts where there are contests, to-day was one of labor rather than of rest. Every effort was being made by the leaders of the Quay and anti-Quay factions to bring their forces into line for Tuesday's conflict. Wanamaker Offers Reward. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4. The ex-postmaster general, John Wanaraaker, for warded a communication to-day to the Business Men's Republican League com mittee of 100. Municipal League, Trades' League and the Law and Order Society, in which he announces that he has deposited in h trust company $50,000 in marketable bonds to secure the payment of that amount in cash to a committee represent ing the various organizations to be used a 3 funds to defray the necessary expenses for the investigation of frauds against the ballot at thj coming election, and the municipal one next February. RIVAL COLORADO FIGURES. Democrat Claim It for Hryan, Re publicans for State Ticket. ' DENVER, Nov. 4. State Chairman Mil ton Smith, cf the Democratic party, to-day estimated Bryan's plurality in Colorado at the coming election at 73,000. Although a complete fusion on the State ticket was effected when the State conventions of the Democrats, Silver Republicans and Popu lists were held, each party has maintained separate headquarters during the cam paign. The chairmen of tho other two fusion parties do not estimate Bryan's plu rality quite so liberally, but both agree that it will be over 60.UO0. The claim of the fusionista as to the result in the State election is that James B. Orman (Dom.) will win by 43.UO0. Silver Republican State Chairman W. J I. Griffith says that not more than twelve members of the mst Legisature will be pledged to vate for Sen ator E. O. Wolcott to succeed himself. Representative Bell's election is claimed by 20,0u0 ani Shaf roth's by 10.0UO. in Ara pahoe county, the largest in the Slate, and in which Denver is situated, what Is called a straight Democratic cou.uy ti 'k?t is in the field. The fusionlsln say this will not draw greatly from their support. Republican State Chairman C. D. Ford, while making no reference to the result of REPUBLICAN WEATHER. Clear Skies Promised for Monday and on Election Day. "WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. The weather bureau to-night issued the following: "Sunday, Nov. 4, 10 p. m. Special fore cast for Tuesday, Nov. 6: "For the first time- in ten days the weather map shows a clear sky over the whole region from the Pacific to the At lantic. v except over a small area cn the middle Atlantic coast, where some rain is falling, as a result of a severe storm, the center of which is off Hatteras. "The pressure Is high over tho western half of tho country. These conditions will surely give clear, fine weather and pleas ant temperature in all States cn Monday, except possibly showers on the immediate rniddlt Atlantic coast line. While it is pos fllj'.e for a storm to develop somewhere Jn this broad area by Tuesday, the conditions arc unusually favorable for the continua tion of the f.ne weather of Monday over to and throughout Tuesday." The general forecast for Monday and Tuesday follows: For Ohio and Indiana Fair weather 'and pleasant temperature on Monday and Tuesday; light west to northwest wind. For Lower Michigan Fair weather and pleasant temperature on Monday and Tuesday; fresh we t to. north winds.

Republicans Expect to Carry the State for Ho tli Ticket. ST. LOUIS. Nov. 4. The political situation in Missouri to-night is somewhat changed from that outlined in these dispatches last night. The Democrats reiterate their abil ity to carry the national ticket to victory by from 0,000 to GO.0O0. The Republicans. on the other hand, still entertain the belief that Flory will capture the gubernatorial plum, but even go further than they did yesterday and predict that Missouri will give McKinley a small majority. The chairman of the Republican state committee to-day made a forecast of the election in Missouri as follows: "The results of the election on Tuesday next in Missouri will be a surprise. The national and State tickets will make sweeping gains in every section of the State, and it is not improb able that the electoral vote of Missouri will be cast for William McKinley. Joseph Flory, the Republican candidate for Gov ernor, 13 the popular idol of the people of Missouri, and we expect to elect him Gov ernor of this great State on Tuesday next." The Democratic chairman issued the fol lowing: "Missouri will give Bryan a large majority. It will give Mr. Dockery, for Governor, a large plurality. It will control the next General Assembly and elect thir teen if not fifteen, of the fifteen represent atives in Congress. Our majority will be from 40.000 to 00,000. It is ridiculous for the Republicans to talk of carrying Missouri." IX DRYAX'S COUNTRY. Neither Side Modifier Its Claim Final Rival Demonstration. OMAHA, Nov. 4. To-morrow will be a lively day in Nebraska and for an ante election day will probably eclipse anything of the kind in the State's history. Both Republicans and Democrats arc preparing for great demonstrations in Omaha in the evening. 4 Mr. Bryan will speak at a dozen halls after a day's tout in the State, and the Democrats plan to make it an eye-opener for this Republican district. The Repub licans will have a monster parade and barbecue, with a shotgun regiment and lots of red fire. As far as the situation is concerned it will be changed but little by the night's events although this is the Second con gressional district where a fight is on be tween the Democratic and Republican candidates for Congress. Mercer, (Rep.) who has served three terms, has a strong opponent, but is confident of, success. Both sides are still claiming the State, the Re publicans by 5.000 plurality for McKinley, and the fuslonlsts by 15,000 for Bryan. .As registration has been exceptionally heavy and the campaign has been thorough, the vote in city and country is likely to be a record breaker. The Republicans claim gains among the farmers while the Demo crats expect an increase in the cities and among the foreign-born. xo change: in iowa, Rut Democrats Think They May Carry Two Districts. DES MOINES, la., Nov. 4. No new de velopments have occurred to-day to change the political situation in this State. If the full Republican vote is cast the State com mittee claims the State will go 75,000 plur ality for McKinley and Roosevelt electors. But there Is a probability that the full vote will not be cast because of apathy on account of overconfidence. In some of the larger cities and towns there is also dan ger of the disfranchisement of a consider able number of the voters because of tho change in the election law which compels the polls to close at 7 p. m. instead of hold ing open until 8 or 9 o'clock as heretofore. The Republicans also claim they will re turn a solid delegation to Congress. Tho Democrats say they will materially reduce the Republican plurality o2 four years ago, but give no figures. Th aiso say they will elect at least two representatives and possibly four. DHJIOCRATS 3IORR HOPEFUL,, Rat Republicans Claim Maryland by Eleven Thousand Majority. BALTIMORE. Md., Nov. 4.-The day has been a quiet one throughout the State, with no political developments of importance except that Chairman Goldsborough, of the Republican state central committee, to night issued a statement in which he claims that McKinley will surely carry the State by at least 11,000 votes. It is supplemental to his claim of yesterday, in which he gave no figures. Both sides seem confident, and betting, which has heretofore been strongly in favor of McKinley, has veered sharply toward Bryan, the odds having risen to 8 and 9 on Bryan against 10 on McKinley, while a few days ago 2 to 1 that McKinley would carry the State found but few takers. DEMOCRATS COXCEDE SEW YORK. Wall-Street Operators -Wire Their Opinions to Fort Worth Friends. St. Louis Globe-Democrat Special. FORT WORTH, Tex., Nov. 3. Colonel Voss, president of the Polytechnic Street tar Company, this morning wired M. II. Briggs and "Woodford Brooks, two promi nent men on Wall street, for their opinion as to how New York State was going Tues day. The former this afternoon wired this reply: "One hundred and fifty thousand Republican." The latter's reply was: "We feel the State is safe for McKinley by 100. 000 majority. Betting 5 to 1 on general re sults." Both these men are Democrats and voted four years ago for Bryan. They will cast McKinley ballots this time. In the Old Bay State. BOSTON, Nov. 4. The work of arousing interest in the presidential election among the voters of Massachusetts which has been prosecuted with considerable vigor by the party leaders and orators Is nearly finished. That fifteen presidential electors pledged to McKinley and Roosevelt will be elected is claimed by the Republicans and conceded by the Democrats, but there Is not quite such an agreement as to the Re publican plurality or political complexion of the Massachusetts delegation to the lower house of Congress. The Republicans do not hope for any such plurality as in ISytf. when McKinley had nearly 100.000 votes more than Bryan, but will be content with somethi like loO.Ooo for their presidential candidate. The Democrats, however, halve these fig ures, while they also claim four of the thirteen representatives. The Republicans expect to elect twelve. Little Interest In Xortk Carolina. RALEIGH, N. C. Nov. 4. North Caro lina's plurality for Bryan will be anywhere from 30.000 to 40,000, its size derending on whether or not a full vote is polled. Re publicans claim only two out of the nine representatives. Though the national cam paign in this State has been remarkably quiet, great Interest has been manifested in the Democratic primary to be held on elt'ction day to choose a successor to United States Senator Marion Butler (Pop ulist.) The candidates are F. M. Sim mons, present Democratic State chairman, and Julian S. Carr. a wealthy tobacco manufacturer. Though both sides are claiming a victory, all indications point to Simmons's election by a good majority. 31ut Re Getting Soured. ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 4. The lethargy which characterized the presidential cam paign in Georgia has been disturbed at tho eleventh hour by a stirring appeal for ac tivity at the polls on Tuesday next. The appeal, which comes from the Young Men's Democratic Club of Atlanta, naya the old cry of "Solid South" should -not have the effect of producing Indifference. Senator Bacon will be re-elected. Democratic Losses In Louisiana. NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 4. Tho Demo crats held several meetings In the State to Jay. St. James Is the doubtful ground In I he Second district, both sides being posi tive of carrying it. Republicans have been given representation at the polbj, although they complain that in some parishes negroes not regis tered have been appointed h:stead of the persons requested, and they :-ay the men named will act with the Demo crats. Democratic enthusiasm has not been so great as in former years, but tho growth of the Republicans has not fully roet expectations, so that the Indications are still for a Democratic victory by a re duced majority. Expect to Carry Tennessee. NASHVILLE. Tenn.. Nov. 4. Headquar ters of both the Democratic and Republican state committees to-night gave out state ments relative to Tuesday's election in Tennessee. Chairman Fitzpatrick, Demo crat, declares there is an assured Demo cratic victory. He gives no figures. L. W. Kennedy, in charge of the Republican headquarters here, claims a gain of three representatives and the election of one Gold Democrat. He expects material gains in the Legislature. Tennessee, he asserts, will plate herself in the Republican column by electing John E. McCall Governor and giv ing McKinley a majority. Expect 33,000 In Vermont. BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 4. Ever since there has been a Republican party Ver mont has given her electoral vote to the national candidates of that organization and there is nothing to Indicate that this year will witness any change in that respect. It is not customary to hold any rallies after the September election at which State officers and representatives are elected, or to make an organized effort to get out the vote and no such work has been done this year. Republicans expect the plurality to be fully 33,000. 'lloth Sides Claim California. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4. It is ex pected that the full registration will be cast in California, notwithstanding the campaign has been an unusually quiet one. Both the Republican and Democratic cen tral committees claim the State by the same plurality 12.000 to 15.000. A conserva tive estimate is that the State will only go 5,000 to 6.000 either way. The Republican committee claims all seven representatives, but gives no figures. The Democrats say they will elect part of their nominees. Republican Chances in Virginia. RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 3 There is no change in the election situation in Vir ginia since the practical closing of the campaign Saturday night. The electoral vote Is safe tor Bryan by some 20,000, and the Democrats claim a full delegation in Congress. The Republicans, however, have a fighting chance in three districts. Frauds Charged lu West Virginia. WHEELING, W. Va., Nov. 4. To-night there are claims from each party that tho other is colonizing voters in doubtful dis tricts, and it is feared that there will be trouble on election day. The leaders of both parties, however, profess to be anx ious to fight the battle honestly. STATUE TO CARN0T.

The President then drove to the Chamber of Commerce, meeting there with a recep tion that repeated the enthusiasm displayed at the unveiling. After the luncheon he spoke in praise of the initiative of the chamber in sending commercial missions to the East and commended its efforts to im prove the conditions of labor In Lyons. This evening M. Loubet was entertained at dinner by the municipality. Respond ing to the sentiments of various speakers he congratulated Lyons upon not allowing the "reviving enterprises of Caesarlsm" to gain a foothold there, and declared that his constant preoccupation was to fulfill the double duty of defending the material interests of all Frenchmen and at the same time preserving Intact the "moral patri mony of the country." The greater part of his address was de voted to a eulogy of Carnot. Prior to his rneech he announced that he had received the following telegram from Emperor Nicholas at Livadla: "The unveiling of a monument to one of your illustrious predecessors vividly re minds me of the Important services ren dered to France by the late President Car not and his active co-operation in the great work of bringing together with essential pacific objects our friendly and allied coun tries. In heartily associating myself with this ceremony I beg that you will ever be lieve in my sincere and unchanging friend ship." After the applause had subsided M. Lou bet said: "France Is grateful for the ex pression of such sentiments. In my reply I bellevo I have been the interpreter of the feeling of all French citizens." MORE ARRESTS OF CAIILISTS. Spain Is Slaking a Very Clean Sweep in the Provinces. MADRID, Nov. 4. An official dispatch announced that the .chief of the Caiiist band, which had been operating in the Ber ga district, has taken refuge in France, and that the band in the province of Ali cante has been dispersed. Arrests of Car lists, particularly priests, continue through out the country. The arrest of a vicar of a church in Madrid has led to the discov ery of additional compromising documents. An entire band of Carlists has been cap tured in the neighborhood of Jaen, capital of the province of the same name, north of Granada. Xot Connected with the Carlists. MADRID, Nov. 4. There is no foundation whatever for the suggestion made by cer tain Spanish papers that the departure from Barcelona of Mr. Julius G. Lay, United States consul general there, for Majorlca, was In some way related to the Carlist movement. Mr. Lay wires from Port Mahon that his Journey is "solely con nected with affairs of the consulate." KITCIIEXER IN C03I3IAXÜ. Lord Roberts Has Left Plenty of Work for Him to Do. LONDON, Nov. 5. Lord Roberts, accord ing to dispatches from Cape Town, ha3 taken his sick daughter to Johannesburg, and Lord Kitchener is left in command. It seems likely that he will have plenty of work. General De "Wet Is reported to have made his appearance near Frankfoit, in the northeastern corner of Orange River Colony, and small bodies of Boers continue harassing tactics. It is asserted that Lord Kitchener Intends to stop the pursuit of commandoes and try to settle the colonies by garrisoning and organizing tho towns for rapid raids with mounted troops. "Prince Christian Victor's end." says a Pretoria dispatch, dated Nov. 1. "was sud den and unexpected, although he had been unconscious for three days. The body was embalmed and preparations were beinjr made to take it to England when the tele gram arrived announcing the Queen's do sire that tho remains be buried in a sol dier's grave This ceremony was per formed to-day."

FIRST GM FIRED DEMOCRATS HAVE ALREADY RCUl'X THEIR DIRTY WORK. W. II. Evans, a Reputable "Republic an Selected its the First Victim. AERESTED ON AN AFFIDAVIT HE IS CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTING TO UIV GEORliE F. KliiX. 3Ir. Evans Had Xot Seen Kuhn for Three MontliN The Facts In the Case. The desperate circumstances In which the Democrats find themselves on the eve of the election, on the result of which they have made such extravagant and baseless claims, resulted last night in the arrest of a reputable Republican on a warrant charging an attempt to bribe George P. Kuhn, the Democratic judge of election in the First preclnt of the Tenth ward. William II. Evans, the custodian of the Commercial Club building, was the man selected as the victim of the despicable scheme. The warrant was sworn out by Charles P. Meyers, a carpenter, living at 113 Concordia street. The warrant charges that on the 4th day of November Evans offered and promised to pay Kuhn $00 to induce Kuhn to permit the ballots cast in the election to-morrow In the first precinct of the Tenth ward ior the Democratic candidates for office to be counted as cast for the Republican candi dates. The warrant further charges that Evans well knew that Kuhn had been ap pointed as judge of the election. The statements of Evans to friends, who attest hi? good reputation, furnish the best basis for judgment in the matter. The first statement was: "I do not know Kuhn ex cept by sight, and I have not seen him for three months." Evans also said that Meyers, who made the affidavit against him, had three times solicited his co-operation in "selling out" to the Democrats, a proposition which he refused to consider. Meyers, he said, held cut on his second visit, which was on Sat urday cening, some unexplained induce ment for the continuance of the meetings, which resulted last night In Meyers calling at his room for the last time, after which the affidavit was made charging overtures made by him to Kuhn, whom he has not seen for three months. THE FIRST MEETING. Their first meeting was on Thursday last, when Meyers was introduced to Evans in Evans's room by Charles Shoemaker, a carpenter living at 308 South Noble street. Meyers, he said, then made some overtures which Evans refused to consider. Meyers came back Saturday night, and on account of an engagement Evans told him he could not talk with him, but would at some other time. Meyers suggested Sunday evening, which was agreeable to Evans. The arrest of Evans was made at an hour which would be most beneficial to the Democrats, In their opinion. He svas slated at police headquarters at 11:45 p. m. The arrest was made by Streit and Trlmpe, the bicycle police. ' For some unknown reason Superintendent Quigley was at his office at this hour. As nearly as could be ascertained he was not called there after the arrest of Evans. A few minutes after the arrest of Evans, .who at once telephoned to his friends for bail, which was placed at 1,000, Thomas Hedian, Superintendent Quigley's clerk, and one of the bicycle police drove up to the station with Charles Shoemaker, lie was taken at once into the superintendent's office and there questioned as to his ac quaintance with Evans, Meyers and Kuhn,' as well as to what negotiations he had car ried on with -the parties -relative to the alleged bribery. Shoemaker said he was called from hi? bed and was told that a man at the sta tion, and under arrest, wanted to see hi;n. He asked who the man was and was toll, he said, that they did not know his name. He was given no information as to why he was wanted. After being questioned by Superintendent Quigley and Hedian, In the presence of a Sentinel reporter, he was allowd to go and see Evans. At the meeting ot Evans and Shoemaker it was found that Evans had not sent for Shoemaker, and the cross examination to which Shoemaker had been subjected was for the purpose cf securing Information upon which to make a case In court. The information secured from Shoemaker was not worth the trouble. On the contrary. Shoemaker said that Meyers, the tool of the Democrats, had several times said he would like to "meet Evans for the purpose of making a deal by which he could "sell out" to the Republicans. Evans, who had not heard this statement of Shoemaker's, said that Shoemaker had several times said that Meyers had told him of the desire he had to meet with him. Evans was not locked up, and was in the police station only a few minutes, when he was released on bond of $3.000 furnished by A. A. Young, 11. B. Gates and F. A. Joss. Prominent Republicans laughed at the efforts of the Democrats to influence voters in their favor. "There is," said one of the Republican leaders, "no doubt that It is a simple scheme to Influence voters, and for that purpose alone. The case will never be followed up. After election is over the Democrats will drop the matter at once and make no attempt to secure a conviction." AT HIS OWN FENCES. (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) speeches delivered by the national candi date during his campaign. The greater part of the tour which has just been completed was made on tne ppeclal car Rambler, which, for the most part, was attached to special trains. Dur ing the tour speeches have been made in succession in Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin. In diana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, New York West Virginia, Maryland. Delaware and New Jersey. Incidental visits were al?c made to the States of Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. One set speech was delivered at Louisville and another at New Haven. Brief talks were made In two or three other Connecticut towns, as were also In Philadelphia and Alexandria, Va. In point of time. New York and Illinois have received more at tention from the national candidate than any other two States. CHIEFLY IN THE EAST. The campaign has been confined almost exclusively to the country east of Lincoln and north of Mason and Dixon's line. There have been several speeches in Kan sas and Nebraska, but up to date only the eastern rart of each of those two States has received attention. Connecticut is tho only New England State which has been visited, and only on tho occasion of the visit to Louisville did Mr. Bryan go south of the Ohio river. Of the territory covered Iowa is the only State in which nc speeches have been made. Mr. Bryan has gone all around that State and has crossed It six or seven times during the campaign, but has not done more in th way of campaigning than to shake hands with the people congregated at the rail road stations. Pennsylvania also received comparatively little attention, but Mr. Bryan stopped long enough in passing from Delaware to New Jersey to make one brief talk In Philadelphia. The crowds have increased steadily in numbers from the beginning Of the campaign and in many parts of the country strong en thusiasm has been manifested. On the whole there was apparently more interest In the cities than in rural districts. In New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois there were especially big crowos, and at moit points in those States the Interest was intense. This may be said also of tho cities in the State of New York. While always nominally giving the place of para mount Importance in the campaign to the subject of imperialism. Mr. Bryan has de voted more time to trusts than to any other subject. He has promised that f elected all the power of the executive should be employed for the destruction of tho trusts; that the army should be re- duced to 23.000 soldiers, and that the Fil ipinos should be given their independence under the American protection. While ad hering to his former position on the finan cial question, Mr. Bryan has not voluntar ily forced that subject to the front in his speeches. During the campaign various modes of locomotion have teen employed. For the most part, of course, railway trains have been utilized, but upon one occasion freight caboose was used In place of a passenger coach. Several carriage rides were taken across stretches of country, ranging from five miles to forty, and one night was sn.nt on a boat on Chesapeake bay. Automobiles have also been used on one occasion. There have been no acci dents to either Mr. Bryan or members of his party. Mr. Bryan's health has im proved from the beginning of his tour and he has never been under the necessity oi resorting to a physician for advice oa assistance. For the most part the weather has been excellent. Stone's Final Claims. NEW YORK. Nov. 4. Ex-Governor Stone gave out his final prediction of the situa tion and the outcome to-night. "The final prediction." said he, "based on the latest and the most accurate reports and infor mation received, is that we will carry, of the so-called doubtful States, Indiana. Ken tucky, Kansas and Nebraska. We have a good chance of carrying New Jersey and Delaware. The battle is on in New York, Illinois and Ohio. If we carry one of , those three States Mr. Bryan's election is as sured." PROHinn IO STATE3IEXT. Says Democrats Are Galley Slaves and Republicans Are 3Iuusters. PEORIA, I!i., Nov. 4. John G. Woolley, Prohibition nominee for President, spant the day quietly resting aboard his special train, in preparation for his lest day'swork of the campaign. The special will leave Peoria to-morrow morning for a run through northern Illinois, finishing at Rockford with the evening rally. Mr. Woolley this evening issued the following statement: "We Prohibitionists do not divide our work into campaigns. It goes right on. I go East immediately, to Toronto, New York and Baltimore, to make the same kind of speeches 1 have been delivering tor thirteen years. With our share in this po litical canvass I am well satisfied. There Is such vastness in a federal election that one cannot foretell, or even tell after, his effect upon It, bu,t ho may know always, and rejoice in knowing, the quality of his message to his country at so great a time. The Democratic party has assumed an electorate of galley slaves and preached mutiny. The Republican party has as sumed a civic monster, half hog, half hypocrite, and preaches 'prestige abroad and prosperity at home.' The Prohibition party has assumed manhood, liberty and independence, and preaches Christ, the King and Saviour of the world." The national chairman, Oliver Stewart, issued the following statement as to the work of the Prohibition party: "The Pro hibition campaign has been the most thor ough and active in the history of the party. Mr. Woolley has spoken in 40) places, from ccean to ocean, and from Minnesota to Texas. The burden of our appeal to the people has been the need of righteousness in the State end Nation. We have insisted, that the government should go out of part nership with the liquor traffic, and with draw at once the protection of law from the sa.oon. We have endeavored to teach the people that license of the liquor traffic Is wrong, because- the saloon is wrong. "We have urged the voters to leave the Republican snd Democratic parties because of their subserviency to the liquor Interest. We have attacked those parties because of their utter Inability to settle even the ques tions with reference to which they have made promises and seemed to take posi tions. We believe and have declared that the times are ripe for the overthrow of both oll parties, and that no new party can or snould win that makes appeal to anything lower than the highest in men. "Hence, the Populist or any other party that makes its appeal to the pocketbook or to mere self-interest cannot win a last ing victory. The demand now is for a parly that stands for a mora! principle, and such is the Prohibition party. Whether it ever elects Its candidates is immaterial. It will elect Its issue to the first place on the political docket in American politics. "The Prohibition vote is not easy to esti mate, for much of it is a silent vote, but indications point to not less than 350,OuO, with fair prospects of half a million or more. Whatever it is, our next campaign will begin next Wednesday, and will 'con tinue without interruption until election day in 1901."

Superintendent of Elections McCullagh to-night sent to the Board of Tollce Commissioners, the chief of police and other officials a communica tion, in which he says he has received In formation to the effect that concerted and organized attempts will be made in many of the election districts in this city by tho lawless element of the community to inter fere with and intimidate voters on election day. Superintendent McCullagh says: "I do not hesitate to state that the ele ment engaged in this contemplated viola tion of law has been greatly encouraged and fortified by the open advocacy of vio lence at the polls reported in the daily prints by persons prominent in political activity. The interference with the voters indicated In my information will be the blocking of the polls by organized gangs, immediately after the opening thereof, by forming in line ostensibly as voters and applying for ballots under fictitious names, and after being rejected to reform again in the rear of the line." Mr. McCullagh then says that open threats have been made that his deputies will be assaulted if they attempt to do their duty. Chief of Police Devery to-day sent the following Instructions to be used on election day to all the commanders of police precincts in Greater New York: "Tactics and methods of intimidation per petrated upon respectable citizens who have been one year in the State, four months in any of the four counties of New York city, who have resided thirty day3 in an election district and who are legal voters, by John McCullagh, superintendent of elections, will not be tolerated or per mitted by the police department."

Griffiths nt Crnvt fordsville Denial of Hearst Canard. pccial to the Indianapolis Journal. MICHIGAN CITY. Ind., Nov. 4. The campaign was closed in Laporte county last evening with the largest demonstration ever held In Michigan City by either political party. The parade of voters started through the principal streets of the city at 8 o'clock, leaded by O Rough Riders and a carriage containing J. Frank Hanly, who was the speaker of the evening, and John H. Bar ker, of this cltj', who presided at the meeting. It was 9:30 when the last of the procession reached the armory, where more than 1,500 people listened to Mr. Hanly, and twice that number were turned away. His arguments were convincing and elo quent, and there could have been no fetter speech for the closing of the campaign. John H. Barker, who is the owner of car works in this city, presided, having just returned from a business trip in the East. During his absence the Democrats circu lated the story among his 1,700 employes that he intended to vote for Bryan. Be fore introducing Mr. Hanly he denounced these stories as false, and said that the greatest calamity that could befall the American people would be In the defeat of William McKinley. He gave Uie laboring people something to think of. He said: "1 have just returned from the East with a large contract for freight cars that will give employment to every man on our pay roll for several months. But In this con tract there Is a clause giving the parties with whom I contracted the right to cancel this contract should Bryan be elected." Mr. Barker is respected by all classes in this city. He is a business man and not a politician. His words will have great weight. During the last four years wages have been Increased in the car works 33 per cent. Indications were never better for a Re publican majority in Lake county . BY INCREASED PLURALITY. Mr. Hunt Says the State Will Be Car ried by McKinley. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WINCHESTER. Ind.. Nov. 4. Secretary of State Union B. Hunt returned to his home here yesterday from northern In diana, where he has Just been campaign ing. For seven weeks he has been going up and down the State, and during that time has not only been doing an Immense amount of speaking, but has likewise made it his business to carefully ascertain the situation, and especially to Investigate the dark side of the political battle viewed from a Republican standpoint. He unhesi tatingly affirms that the Republican party will not only be successful, but. that it will carry the State by an increased majority over four years ago if public and private expression is to be -relied on. Mr. Hunt has spoken in every county of the First and Third districts and has made speeches in every district save the Seventh and Thir teenth. He believes there will be some in crease in the Prohibition vote of the State, and that this will be more largely drawn perhaps from the Republican than from the Democratic party, although he is sure there will be a surprising number of Democrats who will vote the Prohibition ticket. He ha3 visited no agricultural community where he has not found from five to twelve Democrats who voted for Bryan in 1896 who will vote for McKinley this year. He met and talked with these people and is satisfied their action proceeds from the fact that they are satisfied with present conditions on the dne. hand, and on the other that they are unwilling to trust Bryan, with his anarchistic views, asso ciated with and advised as he is by such men as Tillman. Altgeld, Croker and others of that class. He also is of opinion that the party will hold its own in the manu facturing districts of the State. Mr. Hunt made it a special point to visit those sections of the State containing large numbers of German voters, and in view of the Democratic claim that the Germans were going to leave the party because of the issue of imperialism took especial pains to ascertain their views upon this question. He unqualifiedly asserts that the German vote will be cast as it was four years ago. Furthermore, he finds that German voters resent the efforts of the Democratic party to put them in a class by themselves. They want It to bi understood first, last and all the time that they are Americans and de voted to American interests. XO RASIS FOR THE CHARGES. XVnbttHh Cabinet Company Denounces the American Story as n Lie. The Chicago American of last Friday, charged the Wabash (Ind.) Cabinet Com pany with coercing its employes to vote as the company wished, and also alleged tho men were paid barely living wages. J. A. "Willis, of Indianapolis, wrote to the com pany's secretary and treasurer, M. R. Gard ner, asking if there was any basis for the American's charges. Yesterday he received the following reply: "Upon receipt of your favor I immediate ly gathered the following facts from our books: In October, 1SK6. we were employing including apprentices, 102 hands, at a week ly compensation of &37.16. We are now em ploying 252 hands, the weekly compensa tion being $2,131.36. Apprentices are paid 75 cents to $1.25 per day; none less. We have employed 144 hands at $9 to $10.50 per week, and 3y from $12 to $15 per week. In ISM the average weekly compensation of all classes was $5.26 2-3 per week. At pres ent it is $S.45 4-5 per week, an increase, n iatlo of compensation, of GO 4-5 per cent. Our books are open for verification. "As to coercion, our employes have not been talked to at all. They were never told what would occur after election. So ch person ever worked for us by the name of John Bowden and there is no such street or number in this city as given in the ar ticle. The whole thing is a He from begin ning to end. Our hands are all satisfied and contented, and there has never been the appearance of a strike in the seventeen years we have been running. The article referred to was manufactured simply for campaign purposes. "M. R. GARDNER." MIXERS SHARE l.V PROSPERITY. John Mcnrlde's Statement Effective Evidence on That ' Point.

To this question McBrlde answered as follows, whlh answer speaks for itself, and should satis fy anyone who wants to know the truth: "Columbus, O., Nov. 1. Replying to yours of Oct. 30, let me say that the soft eoal miners of your State, as we.l as other States, have had their wages increased TO to 45 per cent, during tho past three years. Part of this advance was secured through the strike of ls7, tut the greater portion of it by peaceful and harmonious negotia tion in the form of Joint conventions of miners and cierators, and the latter made successful because of improved commercial and industrial conditions, such as we now enjuy and which, 1 believe, should not be endangered by a change In administration.

Dr. C. E. Laughlin. Repub lican chairman of the township, hearing that F. W. Collins, who spoke at Paoll in the afternoon, and Judge Marsh, of Win chester, would be in ihe city a few hours while waiting for their train, arranged with Dr. Patton to have them speak after he was through. The result of this agree ment was a packed house. Dr. Patton was given close attention until he began a personal tirade against President McKinley, who he denounced as a confirmed drinker and an enemy to temperance In any form. Mr. Collins, whd was on the stage, rebuked him for his wild assertions. This angered the doctor, and he attempted to continue his vituperative speech. The audience refused to listen to his tirade, and he soon retired. Mr. Collins then proceeded to re fute Patton's assertions, speaking for over an hour. Judge Marsh made a few re marks, but they were to the point. Both speakers were enthusiastically applauded. Dr. Patton gave Prohibition the greatest blow it could have received by his in flammatory speech. Nearly all who have been espousing that faith regret his action and are not low in giving their disap proval. DE IIS WILL XOT RETIRE. He Is In the Fight to Stay Slnc,' Statement by Him.
