the citizens of political amliitlou and pro
cllvltics was centered upon the two States
Of course New York, Ohio and Kentucky
were the all absorbing topics among the
many wiseacres who see the three great
Btates casting shadows over the White
House. But the blaze from the camp
fires across the District liorders were the
most felt by the average enthusiast, partlv
from propinquity and also because 11 ary land
and Virginia, furnish Washington with the
bone and sinew of her bod politic.
In Lawrence Gardner's office in the
Ames Building on G street a small crowd
of politicians assembled and discussed
the situation as it stands to-day. The gen
eral opinion of those present was that Tam
manv would winout luNew York, Hurst in
Maryland, and that there would be a llrice
legislature in Ohio. None seemed to thint
that Campbell had much of a show in the
Buckeye State.
When seen by a Times reporter Mr. Gard
ner said:
"I think the entire otIng strength of the
District lias been brought out, and hav egone
to their respective Btates to cast their
votes. A great many went to New York,
some seven or eight hundred. I believe.

"Altogether I think six or seven thousand
voters hae left the city within the past
fojr days. These are, of i-ourse. Demo

Republican contingent."
A few staunch Republicans gathered
early this morning at the rooms of the Un Ion
nepublh.au Cldb In Wlllard's Hottl, and for
a short time the secretary of that organiza
tion was kept quite busy preparing cut
rate tickets for belated Maryland voters.
About thirty applied this morning for
Besides these, the association has sent
some 500 out to the different States. The
secretary says that the Republicans have
shown a marked degree of interest, in this
campaign, because it will ojierate to a
large degree in the Presidential struggle.
It is claimed that about eight hundred
negroes were disfranchised in Montgom
ery county as was B. H. Warner. They
did not have the money to carry the case
to the courts, and consequently will lose
then- ballot. This was also done in a less
degree in St. George's county.
Of course this will operate in favor of
the Democratic ticket, as the majority
of the negroes would have voted the Re
publlcan ticket. By many of those at the
headquarters this morning, however, it
was thought -tbat Lowndes would carry
the State, in spite of the efforts to dis
franchise the blacks.
The club will receive the returns lo-nlght
in their parlors at Willard's Hotel. This
Is simply for the accommodation of mem
bers and their families. The parlors
will be open about 7.30 o'clock.
At the headquarters of the Interstate
Democratic Association everything was
buzzing this morning. There was an air of
6ubdued excitement surrounding the en
tire place. Nothing has been heard from
the polls that is official, but private mes
sages ha e been coming in from Maryland
and Ohio, and they predicted success with
a large S.
This organization haB exerted eery ef
fort to get the Democrats to go home and
vote, and their efforts have been well di
rected and have brought out an unusually
large number of Democratic voters.
They have sent out about 1,500 men, a
large number of whom went to Maryland.
In this State there Is expected to be the
hottest fight, and the returns will be
closely watched.
Ecn the most sanguine Democrat does
not hope to see the usual Democratic ma
jority roll up. They think that 6,000 will
be aliout the correct figures for Hurst's majority-

the hottest campaign held in Maryland for
twenty five jears.
The Maryland Democratic Club has sent
about 200 voterstuto the State, tbemajority

house of their opponents Is divided against
itself, are hoping the elect a governor for
the first time in the history of the party,
and to secure a majority In the legislature
which wlllgivethemaUnltedStatesSenator.
The chief feature of the contest has been
the fight that Senator Gorman has made to
retain his political supremacy. He has had
troubles liefore, but they hae been settled
in the conventions. This time it is to be
at the polls. Three of the four dally
Dcmocratlc newspapers in Baltimore have

tion of a heavy vote, a large percentage
of the registration being polled in Hie first
three hours.
Long Island, N. Y., Nov. 0. There is
plenty of excitement around the polls in

serious trouble. The Gleason and Jeffcr
sonlan factions are getting out a large
vote, and it is thought that between 7,000
and 8,000 votes will be cast.
Ulngbamton, N. Y., Nov. B Up to 1 p.

The condition or things this year Is vcry
dllferent from that which existed last,
rail, when the Democrats were held re
sponsible by many people Tor the finan
cial and industrial depression which pre
vailed throughout the btate and country.
This state or arralrs and the Congressional
elections brought out a full Republican
vote, while thousands of Democrats staved
at home.
The A. P. A. agitation brings a new
factor into the problem this year. Gov.
Ureenhalge was bitterly opposed for rc
nomlnatlon by the members of this organi
zation. Many tiniis since the convention
the A. P. A. leaders have said that the
numbers would fall in line and support the
entire Republican ticket, but other indi
viduals have denied this statement.
To counter balance all this the Repobli
cans have insisted that hundreds of Catho
lic voters would support Gov. Grcenhalge
to show that they approved of his antagon
ism to the A. P. A.
At the Democratic headquarters no fig
ures have been given out, but the man
agers of the campaign feel confident that
the governor's plurality will not exceed
40,000 at the very largest estimate. At
the headquarters the governor's plurality
Is estimated at from 60,000 to 00,000.
Great Interest is felt In the result of the
election in Boston. Last year Mr. Russell,
the Democratic nominee for governor, had
In this city a plurality of 3,112 over Gov.
Grcenhalge. Both parties are confident of
carrying the city.

sensation In diplomatic circles in Berlin: I

to the Turkish embassy, to obtain from too
Austrian embassy a p.i-s through Austria,
to be used the same evening.
Tbat evening the Turkish ambassador
left Berlin without paying the visits which
are usually made by a foreign diplomat
receiving his conge and without notifying
the Relcbsanzeiger or the official news
papers or his departure.
A meeting or the cabinet was hastily
summoned on Sunday, over which Prince
Hohenlohe presided. The meeting lasted
several hours.
It is reported that the Turkish Ambassa
dor told Prince Hohenlohe that unlets the
pressure which England Is exerting upon
Turkey was relaxed the Sultan's govern
ment might become a victim to ciomestlo
The report lurther fays that the ambas
sador begged Prince Hohenlone ror assur
ances that Germany would not side with
England In driving the Sultan Into a dan
gerous road.
Prince Hohenlohe was unable to satisfy
the ambassador, whereupon the latter Ielt
Berlin abruptly.
Just before leaving he informed the pro
prietor of the Ambassadorial Hotel, where
he was living, that be did not iimnd to re
turn to Berlin for a long time, and nomi
nated Rlfat Bey charge d'affalrs in his ab
sence. It 13 reported that the cabinet council on
Sunday discussed the Turkish question ex
haustively and finally referred the mallei
to the Kaiser for his decision.
New York, Nov: 3. A special dispatcT
from London says:
It is the almost universal belief of
