Assnociated Press Reports and woreeasts for the Northwest Unifavorable to the Republean Party. Naw YonK, Nov. 7.-Weather prospects for to-morrow are not alarming. Accord ing to the weather bureau a heavy stom is now in progress in the lake reiion and thin everaning there is here a cold, drizzling rain, probably the advance guanard of the same storm. The storm to-mo row will prob ably extend from Virginia north and over the middle Atlantic and New England states and while it may clear off before night the weather bureau says it is not pobable. All over the rest of the country it, will be cold and clear, according to prs-ee ent indications. Arrangements are all com pleted for the election in this city to-mor row. On behalf of the federal authorities a to ce of supervisors and deputye United States marshals will watch the proceddings at the polls, keep the peace, and watch out for alleged proposed frnuda. There will be 6,000) or 7,000 sunperviso s and deputies. Sheriff Goiman is also reedy to put a lot of men In evriy election district to watch the marshals, and the police have received in structions to watch them all. It is there fore likely that the presence of so much force will deter all parties from any at tempted frands. It is the general opinion of the city officers that ante-election stories of expected trouble will amount to as much no they have in former years; that is. there is much talk and very little trouble. Judge Barrett said to-day that from the opening to the closing of she polls to-morrow the judges of the supreme court will attend in turn, two or three at a time, in their chambers at the county court house, as has been the custom of p eceding years. This will greatly aid people who may be a rested illegslly. Information was received at the United States marshal's office to-day that a body of 300 colonizers, wuose destination was Coney Island. had been shipped from Pittsburg and other parts of Alleghany county. Chairman Hackett, of therepublican state committee, was seen by an Associated press reporter this afternoon in regard to a dispatch sent out by Lieut. Gov. Sheehan. alleging that the republican state committee sent pester ballots to republicans up the state, headed by William Steinway and Rlichard Croker, demoratio lectors and followed by the names of the republican electors. Hackett said the statement is unqualifiedly false, but addes i tht it was exactly what the democrats have done. lie had samples of paper from no the state which had been .mailed by democrats to a republican. It was headed by Henry W. Sere and Jease -eligman, republican electors, and the names of thirty-four democratic electors followed. He ond raetood the democrats had been spreading these right and left among republicans throughout the state. THE NORTHWEST. Estimates Given Out by Rival Leaders at Ch imago. Cmecamoo. Nov. 7.-The close of the cam paign finds both political parties confident in the northwest. Democrats for tile most pant feel assured that they will elect their governor in Illinois, and there are many who even expect that the electolal vote of the state will be coat for Cleveland. Ile I ublicans laugh at these p etensious and the state committee apl:tars to be quite confident of a zepublican victory all along the !ine in Illinois. From the branch dem ocratic national headquarters here tele grams were sent to-day to all local com mittees in the northwest, assuring them that a carelul loll has left no room for doubt of Cleveland's success in Illinois and Wisconsin. Th'is afterinoon Chairman Cable, of the western headquarters, gave to a repieseLItative of the A-sociatod press the following statement of the situation in the northwest: "In Illinoies the demo cratic o galization was never in better condition. FNom all parts of the state 1 have received letters showing that the dem oc ata Ara infused with the p:os eot. From a earetul examination of polls received from the state I believe the two pa' tii's will come to Chicago very nearly even, and that the majority here will be over 4.00t0, which will give the state to Cleveland and Altgeld by a handsome plurallty.

Ken., Nov. 7.--'he situation in Kansas, as far as it has undergoue any chiango since Saturday night, has ohanged slightly more in favor of the fausionisats. 'ho-day the democratic eandidilte for osa aress In the Fifth district withdrawing in favor of the populist caendidateti. Fusia now is eccimnplishad in all dstlrits, exceptr lug the Miath. He says the repablisans will. without doubt, have a majority of from ten to twenty thousand on the state and na tional tiekets and will elect every congree lsonal candidates. People's party men and fnslonlsts are even more conhldent than the republicans; the cinlrman of the ropuliet state central committee claims the election of Lewelling, candidate for governor, by a majority of at least 12.000, and says Weaver will run ahead of the state t:cket by at least 10,000 votes. Fusion be tween the populists and democrats has been arranged in nearly every legislative and senatorial district of tile state, and the indications are that the legislature will be anti-iepublican, although the republicans 4 claim they will have a najority and will elect isentor Perkins to the United States senarte. 'Ie11 fusionists, on the other hand, claim they will even have a larger majority than in the last legislature, when they eleeted Pfeffer to succeed Ingalls. In the congresslonal campaign the republicans I have made a particularlly strong light for Jerry Bimpson's sHnlp, and the populists have made an extraordinary defense of it. The result is awaited with much anxiety. No Change in Indians. INDIANAPOLIS, NOV. 7.-There is practic ally no clhange in the situation in Indiana. c The result ia still involved in doubt, and a both parties are claiming the triumph of t their electoral ticket and state oflicers by at good round plurality. The people's party c chairman places the porulist vote in the r state at 49,1.). 'lhe populists claim fifteen members of the legislature. that they will hold the balance of power in that body and dictate the election of a successor to Sena tor Turpie. The rrohibitionists elaim a vote of 18,000 in the state, which is prob ably 8,000 in excess of what they will re ceive. The. prohlbltion and the people's party votes are the quantities that give to the situation the elements of great uncer. tainty. Comparison of the vote to-morrow will be based on the vote of 181)0, when the democratic state ticket will be elected by 18.000 plurality. There are 2.9:09 precincts in the state, and to overcome the plurality of two y, are ato the republicans will have c to gain an average of neally seven votce to the precinct. COtifornsi a Doubtful State. SAN FIIANoISCOo, Nov. 7.-The campaign in California closes with the three state com mittees claiming the victory to-morrow, though the demon atic claims are made with some qualification. The chairman of the demon atie committee says if 20,000 votes are cast for Weaver the state will go I for COeveland and from information in his a posseession he inclines to the belief that the populist vote will be large enough to secure a democratio victory. The populist com mittee claim that Weaver will poll 40,000 votes and carry the state by a small plur ality. The chairman of the revublican committee wIlt not venture any statement i as to the plurality, but acys that the com mittee hba the g.eatdat confidence that the state will go for Harrison. I here is much uncertainty as to the result on the legisela ture, the citizens' non-partisan party, which nominated a munnici al ticket her,, having also nominated twenty-three legislative Scrndidates, divided between democrats and sepubhoans. Always )emocratic for President. NEw HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 7-The chair men of both state committees were inter viewed to-nigh'. and Chairman Benton, of the republican committee, sail he expected his prrtv would secure a safe plurality for both the eleotors and the state ticket.

'J he demo or .ta are sure of three congressmen out of foul. Two to One Against lHarrison. DrEvra, Col., Oct. 7.-The political out look in Colorado is a difficult one to figure r on, because there are six tickets in the field. Chairman Griffith, of the republi can committee, exprresses the opinion that the Harrison, state and oonug essional ticket will be elected by 10,000 plurality. This is stoutly contradicted by Chair man McKinloy, of the Clevelandites, who recently withdiew his electors and adopted the pyryple's party ticket. McKinley thinks the Weaver electors will have a plurality of from 8,000 to 10,000. Chairman Ar buckle, of the Weaver ticket and free coin age diemocrats, who fused with the people's I patty, is confident of the election of the Weaver electors and the balance of his ticket in the state. B tting in the pool rooms on the result in the state is two to one in favor of Weaver. vMr. IHarrlcon Not Worried. WAmRIIINOTN.

All Employes of the Great Copper Corporation Are Given a Holiday. Butte Presented a Very Lively Appear ance Last Nigyht- Meetings Were r Bold at Various Places. Burrr, Nov. 7.-tSpecist.]--Marous Daly this afternoon notified the men in the Ana conda'mine and works that they could have I a holday to-morrow and tl e' streets are thronged with the miners and their friends Sto-night. This is an ununsual proeeeding I on Mr. Daly's part as he generally gives the men but a qua ter day at election time. All the men have had the tip that their votes are expected for Anaconda for the capital, but Butte and Helena will get many votes among the more sturdy employes who resent dictation and do not want to have the capital located 14 the boss' town. NIGHT IiElrORI ELEOTION. A tively One in tihe City of Butte-All Hold Meetings. SBUTTE, Nov. 7.-[Special.1-The streets a of Butte were never half so lively as to night. The democrats held a grand parade with several hundred men in line. ' he re publicans had a very small parade and a fair meeting at the opera house, addressed by W. F. Sanders and J. E. Itickards. The people's party also had a large parade, with two meetings, one at Caplice hall and the other at Miners' Union hall. The demo Scratic rally was at the pavilion, which was filled by 2,000 people. Gov. Toole was un s able to be present, as the train from Helena was two hours late. Congressman Dixon ° spoke first, and said that the issues are be 0 tween the democrats and republicans, although he did not overlook the people's party. The latter party represents a few good measures, but not many that lie could endorse. It wants to do too much and would shoulder everything on the fede al government. It is out of the h question that, for a good while at least, the people's party can accomplish the reforms d it avocates, unless they accomplish that through the democratic party. The wrongs complained of ate the work of the republi can party, which has been in power for - thirty years. It is wrong to hold the demo cratin party responsible for any of them, I because in thirty years it has not had the I pooe. 1t. terry out its protnises, never hav rr ing had control, at one time, of all the leg e islative b. anches of the government. - The laest session of congress trased the Chinese exclusion bill, which originated in 1 the house of representatives; it passed the , eight-hour bill, limiting the time of gor n ernment employee to eight hours; it passed a law giving the employes of the govero e ment printing office thirty days vacation in a the year, without stopping their salaries d For Montana, the congress opened the n Crow reservation. It made an appropria o tion for surveys, of which Montana will get its share. Seven or eight thousand dollars f was appropriated to the state to pay the expenses of the constitutional convention. A United States court was established in Butte, and arrangements made for experi ments in a fish hatchery in Montana. It is Sainteresting to tell of the many good meas nores passed by the democratic house, and defeated by the inactivity of the It republican senate. In this way the bill to ,. compel all railroads touse automatic brakes r- for the safety of employes was defeated. o The anti-option law was thus defeated, and d the bill providing for the forfeiture of rail Soad lands where the lines were not built within the time specified in their charters. - Another bill passed by the house in favor of reform was one providing for the elec tion of United States senators by the peo si pIe, and was shelved by the senate, a body o not made responsible directly to the peo ple, and for that reason the senate stands in the way of many reforms demanded by the people's party. The republican patty must assume the responsibility. y Mr. Dixon then explained the objects of w the mineral land bill. The grant of land a to the Northern Pacific in the state of Mon t tana alone amounts to seventeen or twenty f million aores, including every odd section , for twenty miles on each side of the road. d The grant excluded all mineral land, but I the road now olaims that that provision e meant only ths exclusionof the land known to exist at the time the road filed its map of the line in 1882, and includes some of the most valuable mineral land in the state. A bill to remedy this was int:oduced and a favorably commented yupon by many publio is men and newspape:s. The b11il1 was re it ferred to the committee onil public lands e and was discussed for a long time, when - the railroad offered to compromise by tak Y ing other land in exchange for the land ' that would be classified as mineral land it under the bill. 'lbe compromise was out of e the question, because in the first place, the n- road had no right to the land, and in the . seooud place, the road has as much land from the government as it is entitled to, "end I want to say," continued Mr. D)ixon, "that I shall never favor giving another acre of government laud to any railroad, or corporation." S W. A. Clark also spoke effectively on free Strade, the foree bill and IReid'alabor record.

MAr rnvirr.Ir, Nov. 7.--[Hpecial.]-For the past few days this place has been pretty lively owing to the prsience of ge,,lt!emen reprepresenting the various contestants for the capital. The other evening there was a meeting called for the purpose of central izing the vote of this place on one town. Among the most prominent of capital boomers was Edwin Young, of Great Falls. Mr. Young has made a great light h, re for the Cataract city, and although we do not think it possible for any city to take this vote away fromn Helena, he has by his cour teous advocacy gained some converts for Great Falls and made many lasting friends for himself. We believe we speak the sen timents of Maryarille when we say that we hope Great Fells may be calleI anon at some future time to send among us so genial a representative as Mr. Young. Home Votes Challengsed. MILEA CITY, Nov. 7.--Special.]-Col. F. M. Malone, one of the presidential electors on the republican ticket, who is registered in this city, is challenged on the ground that he is not a resident of the state of Montana. The colonel claims that he had not exercised the right of suffrage any where else and that he will swear in his vote. Some half'breed Indians flom the Crow reservation, who were registered in Custer county, have been challenged by the democratic committee. It is claimed that they have state certificates and will try to vote In Yellowstone county. They have been warned at Billings. Courteous to a Townsman. Boz.MAN, Nov. 7.-[Special.]-Charles 8.

Alderson, chairman, and proceeded to illustr ate to the well-filled house why they should be republicans. He spoke on all the issues of the campaign and hoped the republicans would stand firm and vote tie straight ticket. He received very t liberal applause, mainly for the reason of t his being a citizen of Bozeman. Judge McConnell at Billings.

SBUFFALO, Nov. 7.-No specials have been sworn in by United States supervisor for service on election day beyond the, two - originally appointed for each district, one republican and one democrat. A large number of at ecial deputies have been sworn e in by the sheriff for election purposes. The democratic managers issued an order to the democratic boards of inspectors add suenoer visors. The other election officers insist upon the democratic interpretation of the a law. The appointment of deputy she ifs is looked upon as evidence that the democrats intend to have a semblancet of force to sup port their position. Mlany closhes seem e probable, especially in the districts in the o lower part of the city, where nimany com 1a plaints of ilegal registration have been made and where the-e have been many ar rests.

WEAKENED Republican Managers Back Down on the Proposition of Federal Deputy Marshals. Will Not Attempt to Go Behind the Rails and Run Things. Simply Present as Peace Offloers and Not as Bosses of Voters. Returns From All Doubtful States Are of the Moat EInoourag Ing Nature. The Victory for Cleveland Was Won Whet the San Went lrow n on Monday Night, Nov. 7. NEW YonR, Nov. 7.-IHpecial.]-One of the most significant of the final incidents of the campsaignis the back. down of Acting Attorney General Ald rich fromr the position assumed regard ing the presence of United States officials inside the guard rails of the toll Sin places. Mr. Aldrich now says in refer ence to United States marshals and subor dinate federaloflicials: "Ordinarily, it will only be necessary that they should be about outside ready for any emergency that may arise." In other words, they are to be or dinary spectarors of the voting only. In the management of the election they are outsiders, not insiders, and the only pre tense for their going inside that can arise must relate to the election of members of congress. As to presidential electors and all other state officers, under the dseision in the Miner case, they have no function whatever within the guard rails of the poll ing places. This is precisely the point for which New York democratic lawyers, under the guidance of Secretary William C. Whit ney have resolutely contended, and their lucid exposition of law has scored a great victory for free election under exist ing statutes. The result also conveys a striking lesson on the force bill, the enactment of which would be assured if Harrison should be elected, and would sweep away all the home rule barriers between the people of locali ties and absolute centralized power. Chr:rman Thomas Taugert, of the Indi ana state committee, telegraphs as follows: "We have received' telegrams from every county in the state that we are in good shape and ready for the contest. We have sent instructions all along the line and would say to you that Indiana will be in in line for the entire democratic ticket by a large plurality." 8. P. Sheerin, the Indiana member and secretary of the democratie antional com mittee, who has just returned from that state. says that the victory of to-morrow's election is as sure as the rising and setting of the sun. a Nothina whatever has occurred to shake a democratic confidence in a great triumph - to-morrow, but on the contrary. every in L dication points toward a universal "land elide" for Cleveland and Stevenson. SThe business associates of Mr. M. H. Vaninger have furnished to the papers to night an indignant and scornful denial of the wild yarns ascribed by republicans to Col. 'lor. Ochiltree that Mr. Vaningen had gone abroad to collect "bribery gold" I for the democrats. It seems incredible that the managers of a great political party should have resorted to a gross falsification so easily refuted. Latest dispatches received at the demo cratic headquarters are from Wisconsin, e West Virginia, Virginia and Indiana.
