GAN & IKl-EIN YICTORY IS NOW CERTAIN, Chairman Harrity Says Everything Points to the Election of Cleveland. The New York Herald, After a Full Investigation, Con cedes This. Force Bill Methods In New York Driving Leading ludepentent iepublitana From Their Party. Naw Yoat, Nov. 6.-[Special.]-William F. Harrity, chairman of the democratic na tional committee, said to-night of the con dition of affairs at the elosini of the cam paign: "Our confidence in the election of Cleveland and Stevenson increaass hourly. Democratic victory is now absolutely oar tain. All doubt has been removed by full and conclusively entisfacto v advices from all of the southern states in which our op ponents have made pretense of contest, as well as from New York, Indiana, Connecti cut, New Jersey, Michigan and Wisconsin. Information from the western and the northwestern states justifies the hope of an impending political revolution that will add a number of electoral votes to those admitted to be sure for Cleveland, as well as lose several others to Harlison in states heretofore republican. There are also hopeful indications in New England. We owe much to the animirable aurrnage ment of t.ie democratic statt organizations, especially to those in the close and doubt ful states. 'Iheir work has been efficient and the result of it is now apparent in the confidence which the people feel that Tuesday next will witness the election of Cleveland and Stevenson." Referring to the canvass made by its cor respondents th oughoul the country, the New York Herald incidentally says that "the Investigations of impartial agents of this paper justifies, as an unuartisan state me-nt of the situation as it stands, the fore cast which indicates the election of Mr. Cleveland. The Herald the efore con cedes that Cleveland's election is a fore gone conclusion." This admission and p ediction is of particular importance on account of the independent attitude of the Herald and its careful avoidance through out the campaign of prophecy in favor of either side. It has yielded to evidence gathered by itself, the force of which is overwhelming. Clinton B. Daily, chairman of the demo cratic state central committee of Connecti cut, who has steadily refused to make pre dictions regarding the result in that state, now declares that Connecticut will vote for Cleveland and Stevenson by a plurality that will astonish the people, and that Judge Luzon B. Morris will be elected governor by an absolute majority. Before leaving for Enrope yesterday, Gen Gea. S. Batchellar, American minister to Switzeallnd, declared his belief that Cleve land would carry New York and be elected. Senator Calvin S. lBrire, on going home to Limr to vote, sent a circula to the demo oratic state chairman giving aesauance that "Cleveland would cary New York and In diana and be elected." The Davenport raid on the voters of New York has degenerated into a crime of buy ing votes for the re, ublican party with public funds. United Staitee Mas hal John W. Jacobus as well as the an ervisor and his coadjutors in administrition poli tics, are hiring deputies without limit to work on election diy at $5 a heied. These men are mostly "bums," tramps and utterly iresponsible po0sons. The republicans hope by using the treasury as well as the Frick contribution as a floater fund, that votes enough can be bought for Ha rison to keep down the democratic majority in New York. But for every late thus par chaied five will be east for Cleveland and tLnvenson by indignant independent citi zens in rebuke of force bill methods. Gen. Emmons Clarke, for mony years the commander of the famous New York Seventh regiment, and a lifelong republi can, has just declared that he will vote and and use all his influence for Cleveland and Stevenson on account of the deputy mar shals. Gen. Clarke says that if there were no other reason for the action that he and thoeuands of others are taking, a sufficient one would be found in the official course which is an inisult to every honest citizen of New York, and especially to those who have tried to do credit to the commission of the United States when in its military service. ODDS FAVORt C,LEVELAND. New York Repulbleans S'omewlhat Slow A hour , ttilngton Itarrmine,. New Yoaa. Nov. 6i.-[Speoial.]-The re publicns were tilkiug a great deal this morning about their intention to break down the odds in favor of Clevelanld, and end the cimpaign with a HIarrison hurrah by the use of "'lThe big boodle." But. as all through the week, their bluif failed to ma teralize. James Mahoney was still unable to find a taker for his $50,001) wager on Cleveland's election, until the relablicans managed to niake a pool of $40.iU00O to cover it. Edward Kearney has $50e.000 more to place the same way. An offer by John Kelly to bet $1,000 against $4.000 that Cleveland would have ;5,010) plurality in this state met with no resuonse. 'lhere were a dizan bets at $1,000 to $000 that Cleveland would be elected, and $1,000 to $4400 ant to $.00 that the democrats would rery -New York. There were also a num ber of wauers of $1,000 to $7..) on deio cratic sauccess in the states of Indiana and New Je:sey. George 'heelock, of lt. louis, the leading republican bookmaker. declined to make any more bets on the state of New York, saying titt he wase satisfied the democrats would carry it. IRe publican money grew scarce as the evening hours paso.ed and tilue usmpaiucn closed with the week with a practical refusal of the roenblicans to continue hacking their can didates. AN ELIVE-N'I'i LiOURt I.i. It Is Started to Help IHarrlison, but Is l'rolpt rly Natlid. New Yoax, Nov. 6.-lipeoclal.l--The at tention of National (kmmittesman Wal lace, of the state of Washington, was called to-night to a report from Denver, C(ol., to the effect that President Harrison had written a letter agreeing to asign a free coinage bill ift passed by congress. Mr. Wallace charaeterizes the report as an eleventh hour "oasmpaign lie." which was contradicted by every public expression and Set of President Harrison and was re onntly denied by his oflloinl political mouth piece, Chairman Carter, of the republican national sommittee. Mr. Wallace added: "If there was any such evidence in exist ence the republicans would surely have produced • it. Their failure to do this in itself demonstrates the falsity of the story which they are circulating in their despera tion. As their last resort to save the day, the republican managers have been driven to the use of this falsehood by the reports which they are receiving that Weaver will carry a majority of the states west of the Missouri river." VOTER& ASK KI) TO REPORT. A Congressional Committee on Hand to Look Into Force ISill Methods. NEw YORn, NOV. 6.-The following otloe to registered voters has been sentout: "The speoial committee of the house of represen tatives of the United Stater, appointed to inquire into the supervision and adminis tration of the election laws by oflicers of the United States within the city, county and state of New York, hereby request any registered vote;s, who may have received threratening letters purporting to be sent by the chief sunervisor of elections in the southern district of New York, or who may be arrested on election day cha ged with offenses against the election law, and who islnot subsequently indicted or tried for such offensses; anr any registered voters who may be interfered with at the polls in the exercise of nuy of their ie'rai rights by persons claiming to act as United itatea marshals or under authority of the chief supervisor of elections to send as speedily as possible their names and addresses, with a statement of the facts in each case, to the chairman of the committee at 93 Nassuu stoeet, New York. In cases of arrest on election day, followed by the discharge of the person arrested, it is particularly desired that the name of the deputy making the arrest be demanded, and it the name is iefused, that a statement of the menace and a descrip tion of the person acting or claiming to act as such deputy marshal be furnished to the committee of the house.

NEW YoRK, Nov. 6.-Two women pugilists fought a five-round battle according to ring rules in a resort in West Orange on Saturday night. One was the wife of t Swipes the Newsboy, of New York, the other was a young brunette, who was an a nounced as "Philadelphia Maggie." The women appea ed in shot akirts, with arm less, tight-fitting Jerseys, and wore four ounce gloves. The Philaielrhia woman showed up to best advantage in the first C three rounds. She appeared to have a h lonter reach and more power in her blows than Mrs. Swipes, but the latter had more sciatnce and she brought it to bear with great effect in the fourth round, when she landed a heavy blow upon the Philadelphia woman's corsage. The latter retaliated with a stinging blow on where Mrs. Swiires' diamond eardrops would have been had she been wearing her society toilet. Mrs. Swipve followed up her advantage by punching Maggie's ruby lips, and had alto a gether the best of the round. In the fifth round Philadelphia Maggie was shicked by a rude blow in the place where she wears her necklace. This was followed up by another on her pretty Gre I ein nose and one more on her corsage, which knocked her out. When sle revived she insisted that tile fight was not filished and refusei to believ.r the referee. roolnaring that she had fallen in a feint. When she learned that she could not have another "go" at Mrs. Swipes she became exceed ingly indignant and ca:led the referee hard namits. Then she turned her attention to Mrs. Swipes and declared that she was no lady. About one hundred well-known Newark and Orange sports witnessed the soatimmage and declared that they got the full value tur their money. A DiELLIS'I'S REVENGiE. His Treatment of iLs Adversary Who I)oubted Hls (ouirage. A most vindictive duel was fought during Sthe reign of Louis XVI by a colonel of the French Guards. 'Ihisgentlemin was boast I ing of never having been obliged to fight a duel. Another officer exrressed hie surprise with somie indirect allusions to the colonel's lack of conuge, observing: "flow do you avoid fighting when in suited?" The colonel ansawered that he had never airvon offense, and lo one had ever pre Ssumed to innsult himu.

Upon this statemetnt his interlocutor, in the I most iisolent manner, struct hiut in tihe face with his glove, esaving: "l'erbapn, sir, you will not consider tits an insult?' The colonel calmly put on his hait ansd waikted out of the rooma. TlS folloiwinig morning he sent a challenge to his aggree 1 nor. Wliei tlhey ease to the ground the colonel wore a pitelt of court pl.ster ,of the asize of a crown piece on the cheekt which Shad received the blow.

CAMPAIGN LIES NAILED. The Canard About Mr. Collins and the Great Falls Water Company. L. G. Phelps Shows It Was a Busl nese Transaotion by Mutual Agreement. Mr. Collins Had Nothing to Do With Allen Labor on the Great Falls & Canada It. It. Perhaps the most remarkable of the Jour nasl' many campaign lies is that contained in its issue of Monday morning charging Mr, ,. E. Collins with being instrumental in 4frauding Ira Meyers and E. G. Maolay, of (reat Falls. out of $150,000. The facts seem to be that Messrs. Myers, Maolay, Gibson and Collins had each a considerable holding in the Great. Falls Water company. Some tile ago Mr. Gibson sold his interest to Mr. L. G. Phelps, of this city, and at a later date Mr. Collins sold to the same party. At a still later date Messrs. Myers and Maclay made a like disposition of their holding, but in regard to this transaction we will let Mr. Phelps speak for himrelf; HE.LENA. Nov. 5, 1892. To ToE INDEPENDENT: Its answer to the statement of the Helena Journal that in the sale of the Great Falls Water works Ira Myers and E. G. Maelay were defrauded out of $50,000 by T. E. Collins, I wish to set forth in this connection a copy of their option to me to sell their shares, which was in the followmg words: GIREAT FALLS. Oct. 3, 1892. To L. G. Phelps: We agree to sell at any time within thirty days our stock in the Great Falls water works for $00,000. Number of shares, 480; par value of each. $100. IRA MYERH. E. G. MAscAY. Now, this was wholly a business transac tion between myself and the gentlemen named. Not only did they wish to sell, but Mr. Collins was requested by them to arse me to putchase. Col. Lambeth was also told to pe use on the subjeot and Mr. Mc Culloh had from Mr. Maclay the statement that they were anxious to sell and he so laid I the matter before me. Now. how they could have lost $50,000 or one cent by Mr. Collins when they got I their price on an option I was asked to a take is more than I can understand. If they had a grievance against Mr. Collins in a this matter why was it not heard of at the date of their hearing I had the control, or at least after the o: tion of Oct. 3, five weeks ago? I make this statement in sim ple justice to Mr. Collins. L. G. PHELPs. Comment is unnecessary. It seems to have been a transaction between Mr. Phelps r and Messrs. Mye:s and Maclay, and in which,:r. Collins did not fignue at all. If the Great Falls gentlemen have a grievance it must be against Mr. Phelps. who made the purchase at an saured price. The only - part Mr. Collins playeu was to render a . goodly office for Messre. Myers and Maclay in urging Mr. Phelps to purchase their stock. ANOTHER VINDICATION. I The Man Who Hired the Lethbridge Peo ple Exhonerates T. E. Collins. Gs GEAT FALLS, Nov. 6.--[pecial.I-An o affidavit has been made and submitted by a Jno. MoRae in regard to the employment of f labo:ers on the Great Falls & Canada rail we ay. McRae was the man who had charge - of the so-called alien laborers about whom a the republican press are trying to malign the Hon. T. E. Collins. This is a copy of his affidavit: FTATE OF MONTANA, COUNTY OF CASCADE.ý S John McRae, of lawful age, being first duly sworn on oath, deposes and says that he is a member of Carpenters and Joiners' union No. 286, at Great Falls, Mont., and has been a memberof said union more than a year last April; that in July, 1891, this I affiant had charge of and was foreman of bridges and buildings of the Great Falls & Canada railway; that while so employed he was at Lethbridge, Canada, and the super intendent of said railway, Mr. Barclay, in structed this affiant to employ three men to repair the bridges that had besen washed out; that affiant employed said men and put them to work on the railway and they worked one month on said railway and each man received $3 per day and car Sto sleep in, and were paid when they quit work in United States money. I Atl ant further savs that he was acting a solely under the instructions of Superin tendent Barclay and at that time did not know Ilon. T. E. Collins and did not know that Mr. Collins was in anywise connected r with the said railway company. Aftiant further says that T. E. Collins had nothing to do with the employment of any men that were under the charge of th'e attlant, and did not know anything about the employ 0 ment of snid men, and that Collins had at no time anything to say or do with the iem P ployment of men on said railway; that at e the time the said three men were empoyed by this afiant the re had been a washout on said railway, and it beotme necesanry to a repair the road and buildings immediately, and the only reason that men were em ployed at ilthbridge, Canada was the fact that lon were hired at once.

CcircAlno, Nov. 6.--The Times says that Glao, M. Pullman, the sleeping-oar rang nate, has unloosed his purse strinus and will leave nothing undone to effect the re-eleo tion of lenjamin Harrison. Always a lib oral contributor to the republican canse, he has raised the limit of his generosity this year and the sum of lis friendship for liar rison is aidl to be $.5,OI.(X 0, ote time ago i he ave $25.K.X), and oan saturliiy, when he, saw Charlie W. Fai'ranks and it. It. V. Pierce, of Indianarsnlis, he mnade goad his promise to give $10,00.) additional provid ing nine othere would do the unime. In this way, aside rorn his individual subscriptii it, I'ullman increased tihe t core option fund for 1 Indiana to tite extent of $l(iOJ.0l0, thereby ent,tliug him to anything in the shape of a cabinet position or diplomatic appointrment within the gift of the president should he succeed himselfr . 't'her are others whol will send chocks to the New York headrluarters, )ut Pullman prefers to place his money in Indiana. At the lInt presidential election Chicacgo subscribed $MI5,(h)0 to the floosae' corrail- ( Lion fund. It cost at ienat $ri()O, )oi to buy the state, and it will co.t cornderablv more now. Charles W. 'Fairbanks maul ex (Congressman Pierce were tile esldent's I emissaries this year. They had a confer- I ence with the aleepinq car king in the f'ull man building. When they left, they had a big wad of Pullman aonv. 'IJ iey dropped in at the government lbuilding oni the way and had a seance with Collector John M. Clark. 'the collector huntled arountd, and when the In dianians left for home on Sattrday they were $100,00t0 richer, and as the New York managers have probably put up twice as much more, Indiana to going to be the secene once more of a carlmpaign of corrlption. "Floaters" will be as mnuch in demand as they ever were, and it they do not want to vote for Harriton they can stay at hom-e. 'l he latter scheme is the invention of the republican camlpaign. It is the determination of the corruption ists to carry Jndiana by hook or by crook, and even pious John Wanamatker was in Chicago in search of funds. Ieally, Wean amaker came here du ing the dedicatory exercises more as a blind than anything else. He did not care so much about the dedication as he did about the sinews of republican warfare, and the only mistake he made was in announocing his puror . This provoked a howl among those who had been manipulating the Indiana corrup tion fund, and Wanamaker is not to he blamed if he minced connections at a Sun day school meeting which it had been au nounced he would address. He was so rat tled. as a matter of fact, that hbe almost forgot about the Sunday school me:ting. He was compelled to leave town within twenty-four hours. He therefore did not take anythini away with him, and hence the visit of Fairbanks and Pierre and the croceeds of the tax levied by them on the Chinago monopoliste. NO DOUBT OF DEIAWARE. An Attempt to Bride Election Officers H as Solidified ilemocracy. LAUREL, Del.. Nov. 6.-Never in the his tory of this community have the people been worked up to such intense excitementt as now. United States Fecnator Anthony Higgins became so bold in his determina tion to carry this state that he attempted, P through his lieutenant, Postmaster Smith, to bribe Major Isaac John Wootten, demo cratic registrar for this precinct. The sen ator came here, and, it isallegid, p rseonally promised Wootten that if he would help them he would do anything Smith said, and that he was sure Prtesiti.nt Harrison would give Wootten a good othfic for helping them. Wootten went to \Wilmington and con sulted party leaders, when it was resolved to put it in the papers, which was done and this is the cause of the excited condition. a There have been grave doubts on the part of the state democracy about the result of the election in this state. The republicans have an enormous corruption fund. These fears have all disappeazed. and now, while the democrats a-e in a state of i erfect con fidence. the republicans are correspond a ingly depressed. Since the enactment of the new ballot law it is oiflicult for the Ie publicans to buy the votes dtirct, so they went higher and attempted to bribe elec tion officers to deceive illiterate voters. In this they have most ignominiously failed, and the discoveries of the past few days have so solidified the demooratic factions that it is utterly impossible to defeat them. Thus the last vestige of hope of entering I into the strongholds of demos acy through the diamond state has been lo4$ to the re publicans. YAQUI INDI)IANS AROUSED. They Are Preparing for WVar on the Itexican Goverlnment. CrrHnuAHuA, Nov. 6.-The state and gen eral governments are much alarmed over the Indian troubles in the western part of the state. In the Sierra Madre mountains the Yaqui Indians are greatly aroused by the wholesale massacre of the Tomachie r Indians by government troops. leace able Yaquis ate leaving their farms with their wives and children a and gathering at an applointed ren - dezvous, where they have discov.,red aun other patron saint in the person of a beauti ful Mexican gil named Antcla lico. Saint Ancta urges the Indian worslhioers to makeI war on the iMexictans and reclaiu the rich I lands taken in the Yaqui ivter valley. 'TIhe [ Indiana and several hundred ignorant t Mexicans are Inow preparing to hecat de predations and a war of exterminriaattion.

BOlEMAN'S BIG LOTTERY The Authorities at Washington Are Now After the Town-Lot Fakirs. Conduoting a Palpable Violation of the Now Anti-Lot tery Law. The Department of Justice Itas Sent a ipeclat Agent to Look Inato the Matter. CrIciJAo, Nov. 6.-A Washington speeal says that an agent of the department of justice, who was detailed to investigate the charge that certain persons in the town of BIozeilan, Mont., were engaged in running a lottery in defiance of the law, has re po, ted to the department the names of srvety-one persons who have sold or pur chased chances in a prize drawing under a scheilm that in a palpable violation of the law. '1 he scbheme is known an "The Boze man Land and Loan Company." Thecom pany sends out a disk of aluminum which it calls a "souvenir," but which in reality is a regular lottery ticket. REich holder of this "souvenir" or ticket, is entitled to one chance in the distribution of 1,(X000 town lotr, at a drawing to take place in December. The promoters of the lottery are taking advantage of an exciting contest for the state capital in Montana rond cloak their purpose by an nouncing that the drawing is dependent on Bozeman being selected as the capital of the state. The new law against lotteries of all sorts is very stringent and makes it the duty of the United htates attorney in any state where it is violas d to prosecute the holders as well as the vendors of tickets in ;.rize drawings. The names reported by the department agent will be refetrred to the district attorney for Montana with instructions to lay the same before the United States grand jury. Anaconda Meetings at Butte. BUTTe, Nov. G.-[Speoial.1 - The Ana conda capital people held two very large meetings in this city to-night. Both the opera house and the pavilion were filled, the andlences being mainly workingmen. A. J. Weeks, president of the Butte Miners' anion, presided at the opera house. Speeches for Anaconda were delivered by Hon. A. F. Bray. Hon. f'. F. Courtney, Chas. Lane, J. Rnwlings, J. H. Hall and others. Four bands were used at the two meetings, and the Centerville Glee club rendered selections. The opera house stage was beautifully decorated with flags, flowers and plants. and the emblem, "Ana conda for the Capital," was suspended from the flies in silver letters on a blue ground. The audiences were not unansi mons for Anaconda, but the Anaconda peo* f pie were in the majority. Butte Meeting In Missoula. Mrsaour A.

She had never been sick a day in her life and had just wasted away from old age. She died so easily that the hospital phy sician scarcely knew when the last breath left her body.
