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.
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

a earetul examination of polls received
from the state I believe the two pa'
tii's will come to Chicago very nearly

will be over 4.00t0, which will give
the state to Cleveland and Altgeld by a
handsome plurallty. I have just reoeived a

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

nominated a munnici al ticket her,, having
also nominated twenty-three legislative

NEw HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 7-The chair

both the eleotors and the state ticket. Hie

I Davis, of the demos atic committee, said
a he is abslutely certain the democratic

the election of governor would be thrown
into the legis!ature, which is In doubt as to

one could foretell the result. 'J he demo

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.

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

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

MAr rnvirr.Ir, Nov. 7.--[Hpecial.]-For the

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.

not exercised the right of suffrage any

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

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.

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."

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.
