THE POLITICAL HOROSCOPE Unique Features of the Pres idential Campaign. The Eesult of the Election Is Hard to Foretell. More Doubtful Elements Than Ever Before Known. j The Electoral Tote of Fifteen States ln Question, bat the Chances Favor the Democracy—A Review of the Field. By the Associated Pres*,] New Yohk, Nov. s.—The presidential election of 1892 is unique in being the first since the war in which so many donbtful states were 'admittedly at issue between the great polfflcal par ties. It is also unique in being the first in which it is conceded by all parties that the electoral vote of the nation will be divided among three great polit ical organizations. One of the three candidates must receive a majority of all the votes cast or the election will be referred to the national bouse of repre sentatives. TUB ELEMENT OF DOUBT. The advent of the People's party into national politics has constituted the great element of doubt in the present contest. The solid south Democracy and the solid west Repbulicanism are both menaced by the encroachments of the Populists, and in every estimate an interrigation point must mark certain states that one or the other of the old parties were wont to claim in the past as a political heritage. In this list may be named Alabama, Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. To these are added the old-time doubtful states of New York, Indiana, New Jersey, Connecticut and West Virginia. While the three parties will probably not unanimously agree that all these states are to be placed in the doubtful column, the fact remains that on Tues day night, the American public will turn anxiously to these Btates, each and all, for a solution of the presidential contest. THE PRESIDENTIAL COLLEGE. The presidential college this year will consist of 444 members, as follows: Alabama 11 Nebraska 8 Arkansas SlNersda 3 I'.allfoinls ... ... 9 New Hampshire.. ■~ A Colorado 4jNow Jersey 10 Connecticut 6 New York 36 Delaware 3 North Carolina 11 Flurida 4 North Dakota 3 Georgia 3 Ohio 23 Idaho 3 iregon 4 Illinois Pennsylvania 3'^ Indiana 15 Uhod- Islan I A I-iwa 13 South Carolina 9 Kansas 10 -iouth Dakota 4 Kentucky IS Ttunessee 12 Louisiana 8 Texas 16 Maine G Vermont 4 Maryland 8 Virginia 12 Massachusetts 15 Washington 4 Michigan 14 West Vliginia 6 Minnesota 9 Wisconfin 12 Mi«Bis»ippi 9 Wyoming 3 Missouii 17 Montana 3 Total 444 SURE DEMOCRATIC STATES. The states admitted to be Democratic are the following: Arkansas 8 Mi sourl 17 Delaware 3 North Carolina.. ...11 Florida 4 <outh Carolina 9 Georgia 1 Teunes cc 12 Kent.icky la Texas 15 Louisiana 8 Virginia Vt Maryland 8 Miss ssi|,pi 13 Total 147 Michigan. .. ... 5 REPUBLICAN STATES. The states admitted to be Republican are: California 4 Orogon 4 Illinois 24 Pennsylvania 3:2 lowa 13 Khnd.- Island 4 Maine 6 Verm >nt 4 .Vlassacbusets 15 Washington 4 Mich gan 9 Wisconsin 12 Minnesota 9 New Uamshire 4 Total 172 Ohio 23 THE DOUBTFUL STATES. The fifteen doubtful states enumerated at the beginning will cast the following electoral votes: Alabama 11 New York 36 Colorado 4 udiana 15 Kansaa lo New Jersey 10 Ne ada i) ouue ticu: ft, North Dakota 3 Montana 3 t-ouih i akota 4 Ae*t Virginia 6 Nebraska 8 Wyominz 3 Total 125 Idaho 3 Of the 15 doubtful states, Nevada, with three electoral votes, is practically conceded to tbe People's party, thus leaving only 14 states actively in the controversy. Of these, the Democrats make the loudest claims: Alabama, New Jersey and West Virginia, swelling the total to 174. The Republicans ex press the greatest confidence in carrying Colorado, South Dakota, Idaho and" Ne braska, which would swell their total to 191. A DEMOCRATIC ADVANTAGE. Admitting the claims of the two old parties, and conceding Nevada to Weaver, the very doubtful states remain as New York, Indiana, Connecticut, Kansas, North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. These states bave a total of 76 votes, and of these 76 votes tbe Democrats must gain 49 in order to win, and tbe Republicans must secure 32. While on these figures the Republicans would appear to have the advantage, this presumption is not borne out when it is remembered that the carrying of Kansas, North Dakota and Wyoming by the People's party would insure to the Democrats the advantage, by tending to render a choice in the electoral col lege impossible, and thus throwing the election into the Democratic houße of representatives, where Cleveland would surely triumph. CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS. In addition to electing a president and vice-president, the people of the United States will next Tueadap elect 356 con gressmen, this being the number which, according to the re-apportionment, is to compose the Fifty-third congress. Tbe states which will elect legisla tures to choose senators to take tbe place of Republican senators retiring March 4, 1893, are California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Those which will elect legis latures to elect senators to fill vacancies caused by the retirement of Democratic senators on the same day are : Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri. New Jersey, Tennessee, Vir ginia and West Virginia. Thus upon the result of the coming election also de pends the political personnel of 26 sena tors to be elected to take seats at the same time the new president is inaugurated, 16 of these being elected to succeed Republican senators, and 10 being elected to succeed Democratic senators. In the states of Kansas, South Dakota and South Carolina the legislatures chosen next Tuesday will also each elect a senator to succeed one whose term ex pires March 4. 1895, the retiring senatore in Kansas and South Dakota being Re publicans and in South Carolina Demo cratic. A REVIEW OP THE STATES. The Political Situation! Sized Up In Various Commonwealth!. New York, Nov. s.—ln New York presidential electors, members of con gress, a chief justice of the court of ap peals and members of the state assem bly are to be elected. Besides the old parties, in two districts the County Democracy are running candidates in opposition to Tammany. The Pro hibitionists have candidates in all the city districts, and the Socialist Lnbir party has candidates in all except, the seventh, and the People's party in all except the seventh and ninth. T~here is no contest for chief justice, as the Re publican nominee was endorsed by the Democrats. NEW JERSEY ALL RIGHT. It ia thought from a most careful es timate that Cleveland will carry New Jersey by from 5000 to 6000 majority. LITTLE RHODY IS REBELLIOUS. From Rhode Island comes the report of uncertainty. Harrison carried the state in 1888, but it is believed there has been a change in the meantime. No effort will be spared to bring out a full vote, and both sides are confident, but it can be said that the plurality will be but a few hundred whichever way it goes. KEEP YOUR EYE ON MASSACHUSETTS. In Massachusetts the result of the presidential ticket is not considered doubtful. The Rf publicans claim the electors by about 20,000 votes. The Democratic managers concede that thia is probable, but think it possible, in view of the uncertain attitude of a large proportion of the electoral vote, that the result on the presidential ticket may be a surprise. Tbe registration, which is large, is generally believed to favor the Democrats. The Republican managers have said Harrieon will have to lead Cleveland 18,000 .votes to elect Haile, Republican nominee for governor. It is difficult to find a Democrat who believes it possible for Haile to defeat Russell; it is equally difficult to find a Repub lican perfectly confident that he will do so. NO DOUBT ABOUT MAINE. In Maine the Republican plurality at tbe special election in September may fairly be expected to reach the same figures, or a little larger ones, in No vember. HIDEBOUND OHIO. Besides presidential electors to be chosen by the voters of Ohio, are a sec retary of state, two judges of the supreme court, 21 members of congress and county officers. While the leading Democrats at times claimed Ohio for Cleveland, there is no settled feeling that tbere will be any change in Ohio's place as a Republican state in the pres idential year. ALL EYES TURNED TO ILLINOIS. The western state to which all eyea have been turned since tbe opening of the campaign ia Illinois. Two years ago the school queßtion and the tariff issue gave the state to the Democrats, and this year the discussion of the first of these issues ia accentuated by the hope its prominence holds out to the Democrats for success. Issues are sharp ly drawn, and the vote on both the state and national ticket will probably be close. The Republican managers claim 20,000 majority for Governor Fifer, out side of Cook county, and for Judge Alt geld a majority of 20 000 is claimed by the Democratic committee. The chances are that Fifer will carry tbe Btate outside of Cook county, and that Alt geld will have a good ma jority in Chicago, and whichever of them is elected will have only a mod erate majority. It is expected that Governor Fifer will run somewhat be hind the national ticket The Democrats will receive large accessions from the Lutheran vote and, indeed, from all foreign-born nationalities tbat favor parochial schools in foreigu tongues. To offset thia gain, will be thousands of life-long Democrats who are this year arraigning the party for pursuing false goda and who will vote the Republican state ticket on the ground that it ia American iv ita declarations, and that it appeals to the prejudices of no nation ality and no religioua denomination. Hon. A. E. Stevenson, for the vice presidency, baa added to the Democratic confidence in Illinois. The congres sional outlook in the state ia unfavorable to the Democrats. WISCONSIN WATCHED WITH INTEREST. Wisconsin ia watched with more than usual interest, as both parties claim the electoral votes of the State. The bril liant victory of Governor Peck two years ago ia admitted to have been entirely due to the preponderance of a Btate issue, and the chief question thia year is, now that the Bennett parochial school law is no longer an issue, whether the Lutheran voters can be held by the Democratic party. The Democratic leadera maintain that tbe principle of common gratitude muat make the Lutherans loyal to the Democratic party thia year, but tbe Republicans express great confidence in their ability to reclaim the tremendous Lutheran vote which they lost two years ago. MICHIGAN WILL DIVIDE HONORS. Michigan for the first time since the war will cast a portion of its electoral vote for the Democrats. Under the new apportionment the atate ia entitled to 14 electors, and doubt as to political supremacy in two or three congressional districts necessarily involves the electo ral vote of the districts under the Miner law. Two electors-at-large will be elected, and it is reasonably certain that a Democratic elector will be returned from the eastern districte-at-large, while the western districts will return a Re publican elector. The Democrats seem reasonably certain also of carry ing the first, second, seventh and tenth congressional districts, and thus, with one elector-at-large, are rest ing secure in the confidence of having five of the electoral votes of Michigan, withafighting chance income other dis tricts. The Republicans are practically sure of the fourth, ninth, eleventh and twelfth districts, and with one Republi can elector at-large, feel equally confi dent, with a fighting chance in the third, fifth, sixth and eighth districts. While the Democrats will certainly divide the electoral vote of the state, the indica tions on the state ticket eoera favorable to the Republicans. ROOM FOR DOUBT IN KANSAS. Thp fusion of the Democrats and Peo ple's party has brought about a doubt ful condition in Kansas, for the first time in the history of the state. The Republicans do not admit this, but their activity and reticence gives evidence of nervous apprehension. The result of the fusion, if Democrats and Populists alike prove loyal to it, ought to result in the choice of Weaver electors. All the fusion candidates for congress and the legislature are favorable to the elec tion of a Populist or Democrat to suc ceed Senator Perkins. The bolt of the fusion state ticket by a faction of Demo crats will probably defeat it. Notwith standing the strong combination against them, the Republicans claim to ha/c no fear of the defeat of the Harrison electors. COMPLICATED AFFAIRS IN NEBRASKA. The close of the campaign in Nebras ka showß that affairs are very compli cated. While tbere are three sets of electoral tickets, the spectacle is pre sented of the Democratic managers do ing everything in their power to keep their candidates from securing votes. Governor Boyd has issued two letters to the Democrats of the state, urging them to secretely abandon the Democratic electors and throw their support to Weaver, and today the chairmen of the Democratic county committees through out the state began sending out sample ballots with the Weaver electors marked, accompanied by a letter urging each voter to cast a vote for Weaver, and thus take Nebraska out of Republican hands. The urging will prove effective in a large number of cases, but many Democrats declare they will stand by their own ticket. The Republican vote depends entirely upon the proportion of Demo crats who refuse to obey tho dictates of the party managers. The chairman of the Democratic state committee pre dicts that th« Populist tics et will be elected by 6000 plurality. The Repub lican managers, however, assert that the Populists have become convinced of the uselessuess of voting for Weaver, ex cept to aid Cleveland, and that they will vote for the Harrison electors in sufficient numbers to offset the Demo cratic vote for Weaver. They admit that the vote will be close, but maintain that the state will stay in the Republi can column. EVEN MINNESOTA IS DOUBTFUL. That Minnesota should ever become a doubtful state would not be believed a year ago, and yet that is what the Dem ocratic state committee is claiming to night. They claim the election of D. W. Lawler as governor, and assert firm belief in the choice of four People's party electors, whom they have endorsed. On the other hand the Republicans claim a majority for the gubernatorial candidate of from 20,000 to 30,000, and expect to elect all the electors, notwithstanding fusion. The People's party managers are claiming the election of Ignatius Donnelly ac governor, but give no fig ures, and they also assert belief in suc cess for the fusion elector. SOUTH DAKOTA ON THE FENCE. Chairman Green, of the Souh Dakota Republican committee, places the Re publican plurality in the state at 15,000 and other party leaders agree with him in the prediction. The Democrats and independents, however, are confident of success. Oue matter of uncertainty is the inability to tell whether the Alli ance vote will be as strong aB two years ago. Although the Democracy and Al liance combinations two years ago polled less votes than tbe Republicans, they hope this year by fusion, to carry the state. The Democrats are straining every nerve to carry the Weaver elect ors, and are said to be sacrificing the rest of the. ticket to that end. The Democrats claim success, but the Re publicans express the greatest confl dence in carrying the state. SILVER ABOVE ALL IN COLORADO. All the iasuea in Colorado are subor dinated to the silver question. Ninety five per cent of the Democrats in the state have endorsed the Weaver electors, ao there are practically but two parties in the field—Republican and People's paity. The Weaver party claims the state by from 10,000 to 15,000. The Re publicans, on the other hand, say they will save the stale to Harrison, hut re fuse to give any figures. Should Weaver carry the state by as much as 10,000, the entire Populist state ticket will go with him. A MIXTURE IN MONTANA. Conservative estimates give Montana to Harrison by a small majority. The Republicans will elect the governor. The balance ot the state ticket will be divided between the three parties. UNCERTAINTY IN IDAHO. In Idaho there iB great uncertainty re garding the result. The Democrats and Republicans both claim the Btate, while the Populists are scarcely less confident. POPULIST HOPES IN OREGON. In Oregon the Democrats do not ex pect to carry the state, but they are cer tain to elect Pierce, a Populist elector, whom they endorse. The People's party vote in the Btate it ia believed will reach 15,000. ALL SERENE IN ARKANSAS. Arkansas advices indicate a quiet elec tion, with about an average vote. Op posed to the Democratic national ticket ia a combination ticket composed of equal parts of Republican and People's party candidatea for electors. Nothing haa developed to doubt the success of the Democratic candidate in the Sixth SIXTEEN PAGES-1 TO 8. PRICE FIVE CENTS. tK- ioDal iß,rict Riven th « 6ta, e by the new apportionment. AN ANOMALY IN ALABAMA. In Alabama the Alliance embarked on an independent course, under the Jeffer soman Democratic party, and allied itself with the Republicans, with no T a V nT d Th» JeCt K XCefU t0 defeßt Cleve land. The combination ticket is known as the Populist ticket. Tuesday's elec tion will be strictly confined to the choice of presidential electors and con gressmen. NO FLIES ON THE BOURBONS, Kentucky reports no less than tbe usual 30,000 majority for the Democratic national ticket. TENNESSEE IS WAY UP. The Tennessee state Democratic com mittee had a poll made of the state which indicates a plurality of from 40 - 000 to 50,000 for the Democratic electors, a plurality of 40,000 for the Democi atic tioD. ern ° r * ma j° rit y over ;iU opposi- SOUTH CAROLINA IS SOLID. It is certain aB anything can be in politics tbat the electoral vote of South Carolina will be ca ß t for Cleveland and Stevenson. There is little d übt that, a solid Democratic, or rather a partly fusionist, delegation will be sent to con gress and a full Democratic state ticket • elected. The seventh and only doubtful district in the state is where George (™lpred), Republican, opposes W llham Llhot, the Democratic nominee. GEORGIA WILL KEEP IN LINE. The heavy majority received by the Democratic state ticket last month, in the Georgia election, insures the elec tion of the Democratic electoral ticket, though it is probable the majority wili be somewhat smaller than that received by the Democratic state ticket in Octo ber. LOUISIANA DECIDEDLY DEMOCRATIC. The political outlook in Louisiana may be said to be decidedly Democratic so far aB the national ticket is concerned, and the Democrats expect to elect a solid delegation to congress, although claims to the contrary are made, in ad dition to the full state ticket and presi dential electors. AN EXCITING CAMPAIGN IN TEXAS. From Galveston comes word that, to night virtually closes the most exciting campaign ever known in Texas. George Clark, who leads one wing of the Democratic party, endorsed by the Republican party, will probably be elected governor. The presidential election iB all one way. Weaver and Harrison will get some voter*, but Cleve land will roll up the usual majority, as there is no division of the Hogg and Claik Democrats on president. SAFE BETS IN MISSOURI. Four parties in Mie3ouii vote for' rail road commissioner, three judges of the supreme court and two judges of the court of appeals. The sporting element are placing even money on 12,000 Demo cratic plurality. WEbT VIRGINIA IS SAFE. The Democratic state committe of West Virginia claim the state is safe for Cleveland, while some conservative Re publicans say they consider it unlikely that Harrison will carry the state. WYOMING IS VERY CLOSE. In Wyoming the Democrats have con ducted an aggressive campaign, assisted by the People's party, with whom a coalition has been effected by the Demo crats supporting the Weaver electors and the Populists throwing their strength to the Democratic state ticket. Non-partisans are of the opinion that the contest will be very close. CONNECTICUT ALL CUT UP. In Connecticut there are five state tickets in the field and one must have a majority over all the othets to win. Both the Republicans and Democrats claim the state with equal assurance. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE IOWA. In lowa the fact that state issues are subordinate to the great national ques tions tends to give the Republicans a significant advantage, and the Demo crats are usually frank enough to admit that the chances favor the Republican party, although some Democrats still maintain confidence. There is apparently no significant growth in either the People's party or tbe Prohibition party in the state. While on the national ticket the chances favor the Republicans, indica tions are that the contest will he quite close on the state ticker. The Republi cans are claiming eight out of eleven congressional districts, but the Demo crats concede only six. THE OUTLOOK IN INDIANA. It is impossible to forecast the result of the presidential election in Indiana. It is certain, however, that it -vill not go ss an avalanche for either party. The Democrats are claiming it by 12, --000 to 15,000. The Republicans ex pect to carry it by 8000 to 10 000, and gain 5 to 7 congressmen. The result will largely depend on the Populist vote, which is .an unknown quantity. The Populists claim 40 000 Conservative estimates put it, at 25,000 Furthermore, the Prohibitionists claim large arcessions since they cast 12 000 votes two years ago. It seems almost inevitable that the Democrats will lose some districts gained in the political avalanche two years ago, though they will probably retain a majority of the delegation from the state. Holy Johu Among the Hooslers. Valparaiso, Ind ,Nov 5 —Postmaster General Wanamaker addressed a large gathering of enthusiastic Republicans at Columbia City this morning. To night in this city thousands were un able to gain admittance to the court house, where for upwards of an hour he defended the Republican principles. McVeash Speaks in Chit-ago.
