OVER $200,000 WAGERED.

The volume of flection betting In the curb market
yesterday was the largest for any day In the pres
ent campaign, and the largest for any day since
betting on election results became a feature of the
curb's activities, several years ago. The majority
of the. wagers yesterday were on the outcome of
the contest In this State for President and on the
result of the Governorship fight, but the biggest
single bet of the year was made on the general re
sult at odds much more favorable to Roosevelt
than those which ruled on Saturday. This was a
wager made by R. S. Richardson, of No. 43 YVall-st..
who placed $8,000 on Parker against $50,000 put up
on Roosevelt. Mr. Richardson confirmed the re
port that this bet had bum made, but he refused
to name the principals and denied that his client
was, as rumored, "a prominent Brooklyn Ben* tor,"
although he admitted thAt the man was a promi
nent Democratic politician of Brooklyn.
"This wasn't a bet on sentiment at all." he ex
plained, "and I am not at ilberty to give the names.
The man I represented has committed himself In
the stock .market on the long side, carrying quite
a line, lie has simply bet this money as a 'put,' or
hedge, against the stuck h« holds. If Parker wins
he will have |G5,400 to protect him against a drop

I requested tho Democratic national campaign
managers, Mr. Presided, that they should not

The Fact. — Two Democratic campaign funds
one made up of trust contributions, "segregated"
in W. F. Sheehan's custody. Other general con
tributions in charge of George Foster Peabody.
Judjje Parker was able to make his statement
to hia friends at the Kings County Democratic
Club on Saturday night, because there are two
Democratic campaign funds. One is the general
fund, intrusted to George Foster Peabody.
philanthropist and Civil Service reformer. The
other is a "segregated" fund, la the custody of
William F. Bheehan.
Judge Parker had in mind only the Peabody
fund when he made his somewhat Incompre
hensible statement on Saturday night. He
didn't know then, and dors not know now, much
about the fund In the custody of William F.
Bheehan. lie prefers not tv know much about

Contributions from the Standard Oil Com
pany, the To), ace.) Trust, the Sugar Trust and
from George K. Baer, president of the Philadel
phia and Reading <\>ul Company, are alleged
to have found their way into this segregated
fund in the custody of Mr. Sheehan. The men
who, it is understood, steered thes<; contribu
tions into this fund were Senator Gorman, of
Maryland; James Smith, jr., of New-Jersey;
John R. McLean, of Cincinnati, and August Bel
When the George Foster Peabody campaign
fund ran dry, four weeks ago, Mr. Peabody sent
out liis famous call for funds, with the sugges
tion tha: riollars and half dollars would not be
scorned. At the same time William P. ?hee
han's fund was getting along comfortably with
good fat contributions from the trusts named.
That was how it happened that there was
plenty of money to spend on sending out docu
ments pot up by faovrltes of the National
Executive Cormmttee, while Democratic news
papers in the South and West were printing
appeals for dollars and half dollars in behalf of
the "poor man's party," as Mr. Relmont likes
to call his subway political organization.
The Republican National Committee has proof
that President Baer of the Philadelphia and
Reading Railroad, who conceived a strong per
sonal dislike for the President when the Presi
dent brought about a settlement of the coal
strike, declared In the presence of witnesses
that he would go to any length to beat Rbose

PRESIDENT IS CONFIDENT
HAS FAITH IX THE PEOPLE
Goes Home to Vote in a Serene
Frame of Mind.
Washington, Nov. 7. — President Roosevelt
started to-night for Oyster Bay, where he will
cast his vote to-morrow. That he Is confident
of the result of the election no one who talks
with him can doubt for a moment. All callers
at the White House to-day found him In th"
best of spirits, and be discussed the political
outlook as calmly as If he were not a principal
in the contest. He saia to a friend that he
was perfectly Willing to submit to the people of
the country the Issue between him and Judge
Parker. He believes he has ('.one everything he
properly and legitimately could to present to
the American people the principles on which
he stands, and he awaits the verdict to be
rendered to-morrow with absolute calmness and
with faith In their judgment B« reiterate.! the
statement that the- campaign for his election had
been conducted on a lofty plane of principle
and patriotism, and that if elected he would
enter on the duties of his high office on March
4 without havlnp made a promise or incurred
;iti obligation that could embarrass an honest
man in administering the affairs of the nation
in tho interest of all the people.
A special car for the President and his party
was attached to the regular train on the Penn
sylvania Railroad which started for New-
York at 1 _':.:'> a. m. Mr. Roosevelt was accom
panied by Secretary Loeb and several Whit*
House attaches who vote at Oyster Hay. Ar
riving at Jersey City at 7:15 o'clock to-morrow
morning, the party will embark on a tug and
be taken to Long Island City, where a special
train will be in waiting to take them to Oyster
Hay. The President will remain in Oyster Bay
only long enough to cast his vote, r :urning in
time to catch the 1:14 train for Washington.
He is scheduled to arrive here at 6:16 o'clock.
Returns from the election will be received by
the President at the White House. He will
have as his guests members of the Cabinet who
may be in the city and a few other persona]
friends. In addition to the returns received in th»
regular telegraph and cipher bureau at the exec
utive offices, important messages and bulletins
Will also !,- received in the President's library at
the White House. Special wires were strung to
day connecting the main office of the Western
Union with Instruments In the library, and one
of the corps of operators in the executive tele
graph bureau will be on duty at the Bide of the
President. Communication thus may be had by
the President with any city in the country.
Chairman Cortelyou, who will be at headquar
ters In New-York, will keep the President and
his friends advised of the returns as they are
received by him.
At Republican headquarters to-night the ut
most confidence is expressed. This confidence
Is reflected in the betting, which has been
heavier in Washington than ev<r known be
fore. The odds on the general result are "> to
1 hi favor of Roosevelt arid Fairbanks. The
interest of bettors centres chiefly on New-York,
and large sums have been wagered on the re-

Vote early to-day!
There has been an unusually large registration
for to-day's election, particularly in the Repub
lican districts. At some of the polling places
In the Republican districts there will be diffi
culty in getting in the entire registered rote
unless the voters go to the polls early.
At ."> p. m. the polls close for all ten who
have not obtained their ballots in the polling
places. The polling places will be shut at that
hour against any registered electors who may
be standing In line outside. Every Republican
voter should bear this is mind and make sure
of his vote by poinj; to the poll? as early ac
Another reason for early voting to-day, and
for being at the polls earl; to protect the rights
of other voters you know personally, is tha:
Tammany leaders in some of the Republican
districts have formed hands of repeaters who
are to be sent early to the polls with orders 10
attempt to vote in the names of Republicans
who may be late. The orders are for thee-e re
peaters to be at the polls before 8 o'clock. If
the election officers allow a repeater to vote in
your name in your district before you go te 9
polls, you will lose your vote.
This danger was made known to George W.
Morgan, the Superintendent of Elections, yester
day. He said:

state Superintendent of Elections in the Met
ropolitan District, has obtained nearly ten hou

expected to attempt frauds al the pol!s t.>-day.
It is believed Owl the election t >- i .y will be
marked by the largest number of arrests for
illegal voting ever known to the city.
A large number f the warrants obtained by
Mr. Morgan >*re based on affidavit* by his dep-
Utles who were organized in a secret servtc*
force several weeks ago. The deputtes in the
secret service force ar*' picked men who have
shown detective ability. They received tbeii In
structions from Mr. Mori weeks ago, and s.-»
carefully have ih«*>- followed theii instractfoos
thru they have not :>e<-!i :ioar Mr. Morgan's
office since then. They hare giren Iheti reports
and have made th-ir affidavit! in secret m*»et
inics with Deputy Bupertnten : tn\ X:;
They disguised themselves aa tramps ex cor
ner loafers and picked up acquaintances with
men who live m lodging house* They became
members of the ganss of colonized floaters a*<.d
repeaters, went to Uve r>t the i*Migit»g booses
designated by Tammany leaders and regJatswesl
illepally with the others to the sangs. hi that
way they gained the names ol many Tammany
workers who have hired the gangs, -is well aa
the names of many members of the Bangs All
this iiiforr".a::<">:i has been given in afTirlavita
which have been used in applications fot war
A cord s to the evidence ohtained by tSMSS
secret service men, the gans;s cf repeaters were
found to be m.id" up of "hoboes," Mitels
and the dregs cf the rough element. All have
received food and lodging and have bean hired
regularly to vote. There are both large and
small gangs. Trie large car.gs are oorr.j.os^-i
of about thirty-five man, the smaller gangs of
from sb: to ten men each. Each man has reg
istered from fifteen to twenty times in the va
rious districts specified. Repeating has b^ert
planned carefully and systematically.
Some of the men In the gangs have gone out
of • >nn and v to vote outsida of New-York
to-day and th> :n m the ■•>' to vote,
while others will vote early in the city. Su
pertntendent Morgan announces that his men
have gone with them, and win remain with
, them until they vote. From the reports re

Mr. Morgan declared yesterday thai the prep
arations for getting the evidence were intended
to bring about not oniv the ar:.-st. but also th->
conviction of Illegal voters te the ek-.-tlon. It
is his ex ; » t .;ion that in the great majority of
