U r VOLUME XIV. FOR IUIUY BY 10,00 ! The Democrats of Chicago Are Flock ing to the Honest Standard of Sound Honey. Thousands of the Leaders of the Democracy Subordinate Their Party Fealty to Patriotism, Believing that the Election of Bryan Will Ruin Business and Precipitate a Panic. Thus Believing, They Follow the Only Course Left Them, and Declare for McKinley. McKinley Is gaining jsrotiutl dally In Cook Comity. Tin flower of the Democratic party I Willi lllllL 'ln men who have fought Democ racy's battle for years un wltli Mc Klnley this year. Not that they love MeKiuley espe cially, but that they lovo their country more. They Ih'llevt tluit If Itryan 1h elocU'd the hardest Union this country Jiiih ever Keen will fall uon thu republic. All values will be unsettled. The hanks will refusn to loan money In order to protect themselves. Manufacturers will be obliged to shut down their mills and closo their fac tories. Without reference, to the merits or demerits of the sliver ipirMlou, the elec tion of Itryan would bo ti calamity. People who did not vote for him would withdraw their money from thu banks, fearing a run on them. Pooplo who did vote for llrynti would try to bo as smart as the other fellows and draw their balances out, too, not that they feared anything from llryau, but hi order to be safe. In the meantime there would be a general stagnation In nil Hues of btisl-uer-s owing to the uncertainty as to what ltryan's Popullstlc Congress might do. For If Hryan Is elected his Congress will be elected with him, and what a wild-eyed nggregatlon.of cranks It wltl be! So that the safest way to do Is to vutM for McKinley. Thousands and thousands of Chi cago Democrats are going to vote for .McKinley, and It looks as If 100,(100 ma jority would salute his bauuers at the close of the polls upon election day. Dr. T. X. Tamleson on Tuesday made his llrst prediction as to thu national election. Ho said that William McKin ley would be elected President and gave nut the llgures of the States which he says are already Won for tint Ohio man. Dr. .Tamleson Is the representative of Illinois on the llepubllcan National Committee and a member of the cam paign committee, and because of his poult Ion In the party councils Is gener ally credited with having political In formation which Is a shade more accu rate than that possessed by any other man In Illinois. During the early part of the campaign Dr. .lamlesou was re garded as the calamity howler of the party. lie Insisted that the election could only bo won by the Itcpiihllcnus by hard work, and for some time he was famous as the only Itepubllcan leader who admitted that there was a chance of Mr. Ilryan's election. Dr. J.iiuleson mild that out of the -117 votes In thu Klocloinl College there cer tainly would ho 278 for McKinley, while the number might run up above 00. Following are the States which ho said would give McKinley their Nice tornl voles: California 0 Connecticut (I Illinois 24 Indiana 15 Iowa ,,,,,..,,.. it IveutucKy .,,.,... ....,.,. ll Mntuu 0 Marylaud 8 Massachusetts in Michigan 14 Minnesota 0 - Nebraska 8 New Ilampshlro -1 New Jersey 10 Now York . 5M1 North Dakota 3 WlllO .....,,.. ..............t.i J Oregon -I Pennsylvania (. ...

If I had not I n carcrul I might have put In Louisiana, South Dakota, .Mon tana and several other .Slates which probably will give their Hlectoml votes to McKinley. The States named are nsMired for McKinley, and they give one more Hlectoral vote than was cast for (irovor Cleveland In 1MI2. 1 have uot attempted to figure on majorities." Dr. .lamlesou, In his estimate, gives all the Western coast Slates to McKin ley. In these States he says the money ipicstloiilsa minor Issue compared will) the tariff, and for that reason he Is sat lulled the States will go for McKinley. lie places Kentucky, Nebraska and i .Maryland In the "certain" column, lie does uot count Missouri certain, be cause of Internal dissensions among the Itcpuhlicnns, and for the same reason he leaves thu three votes of Delaware out.

A week ago ballots were sent to the members of the club asking them to ex press their opinions on three proposi tions having to do with the possible political action of the club. The mem bers were asked whether they were In favor of supporting the Chicago ticket, the Indianapolis ticket, or whether they thought It best to take tin concerted ac tion at all. Approximately fiuo of theo ballots were sent out, but only L'1'2 of them came back. The following bulle tin, which was posted at the club-rooms Tuesday, shows the distribution of the 222: The vote on the question of the club's political action or altitude- has been canvassed. It has resulted as follows,: To Indorse the Chicago ticket 411 To Indorse the Indianapolis ticket . .101 In favor of taking no action "." Total --- No action has been taken by the com mittee.

"" The residents of Webster avenue are highly Indignant at the Altgeld lias Company, which has left that street In f rightful condition. Resident; of Lincoln avenue held a meeting Wednesday morning at room J'J'J.

Dr. Jamlcsou Is one tho shrewdest as well as most able politicians lu this country, and we are of tho opinion that lu this statement he Is rather below than above the mark. We are greatly mistaken If McKinley does not break well Into the solid South this fall, as well as sweep the entire chain of Northern Slates east as well us west.

Thoy Succeeded in Crowding Out Good Citi zens in Their Efforts to Fill the Hall. "Let It eomel" "I n aw one'." "Lot the blood follow the plate!" "Rare and lots of It." Thec were a few of the devices that greeted tiov. Altgeld when he address ed the (Senium Wallers' 1'ulon at I'.r.i ud's Hall on Wednesday night.

Not a non-union waiter was present, great care having been taken to admit no non-union men, admission to the hall being by ticket only.

Hut the subservient managers were bound there would be no mistake, hh they made arrangements with different lodging house leaders and managers of lake front silver inoKs to have their men at the hall at d::iii o'clock ou the evening of the speech.

Almost -ntl0 decent people were crowded out on the sidewalk and were forced lo listen to the overllow speakers or go home. The lesult Is that the managers are being roundly denounced for their freshness. Many decent Democrats believe that there Is no necessity for dragging the lodging house and lake front clement to down-town meetings. This sort of politics Is not necessary In a presiden tial year.

Since the company l.ihl Its pipes, after securing coin tacts with three-fourths of the owners and tenants along the street, the avenue has been one long succession of clay holes and the wagon and buggy trade of the merchants, which Isu feature of their business, has suffered. Herman Frey and William Friedman were appointed a committee to wait on tho gas company and pre.ieut thu ultimatum of North avenue. The following letter from the com pany to the editor of The Kagle doc-i not uieml mutters, it throws the blame for the condition of certain streets on others, but the fact remains thai the slieets have been ruined by the Ogdea (ins: Dear Sir Our attention has been call ed to the condition of pavement on Webster avenue, near Fremont street, which was taken up by us for the pur pose of laying our gas pipes, ami relald by the city of Chicago. We are aware of the fact that this work was Improperly done, but the re sponsibility for It rests with the city, and uot with us. The facls In the ease are these: We expected to do our own repavlug under the provisions of our franchise, bin were uoiltled by the Department of Public Works, then lu charge of Com missioner Kent, that we would not ho allowed to tlo so. At our solicitation the ipiestlon was referred to the City Law Department, which advised the Public Works Department that It was our right ami duty under the ordinance to do our own repavlug. After this de cision of the Law Department had been rendered Commissioner Kent directed Powell llrox. to go ulji'.ul and repave the streets which we had opened. This tlriu rcpaved Orchard street, from Wil low street to llehlen ami Webster ave nues, from Orchard street to Racine avenue. Tho woik was very badly done not much belter than our temporary repavlug. A bill was rendered for this work which amounted u more than three times the proper cost of It. We declined to approve this bill on three accounts: First, Hint we had the right to do our own repavlug: second, that the work was Improperly done; and, third, that the charge wax simply exorbitant. Not withstanding our refusal to (), K. this bill, It was paid by the city out of mon ey depos'ied by us as a guarantee of proper work. Von will therefore see that we cannot fairly bo held responsible for this bail work, ami that Instead of being Hie wrongdoers we are tho victims of wrong-doing. Since Hint Hum wo havo been permitted to do our own repavlug as provided In Hie ordinance, ami we feel conlldeiit that any one who will carefully Inspect our repavlug will readily admit that no corporation ever did better street work lu this city. We have aimed to do this repavlug lu a manner that would bo satisfactory not only to tho city, but to tho residents of thescctlon which wo propose to reach with our gas mains, recognizing the fact that upon the good will of these citizens depends upon the success of our enterprise.
