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.

which he announces that he has deposited

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

draw greatly from their support.

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

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."
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.

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.
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.
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

the Democrats claim a full delegation in
Congress. The Republicans, however, have
a fighting chance in three districts.

WHEELING, W. Va., Nov. 4. To-night
there are claims from each party that tho

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

This evening M. Loubet was entertained
at dinner by the municipality. Respond

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

The greater part of his address was de
voted to a eulogy of Carnot. Prior to his

the following telegram from Emperor
Nicholas at Livadla:
"The unveiling of a monument to one

W. II. Evans, a Reputable "Republic
an Selected its the First
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.
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."
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.
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.

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.

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
"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."
McCnllneh Says Thugs Will Interfere

NEW YORK, Nov. 4. 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:

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

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.
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.
John Mcnrlde's Statement Effective
Evidence on That ' Point.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
AURORA, Ind., Nov. 4. Mr. IL B. Hill,
of this city, cn hearing of Democratic ex
ceptions to the statement that the soft coal
miners have been materially benefited by
the prosperity Incident to the McKinley ad
ministration, wrote to John McBrlde, cx-
president of the Bituminous Coal Miners'
Union, embracing some 300,0(0 men, and
who was president when the great dtiike
of t7 was settled, and to whom the miners
owe a debt of gratitude for the part he
played In the settlement. 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.

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

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

an hour. Judge Marsh made a few re
marks, but they were to the point. Both
speakers were enthusiastically applauded.
