The Republican Nuliunal committee him accomplished a wonderful work olnce it pitched Its tent in the Windy City. Old campaigners uy that nuch a superb purty organiza tion was never seen before. The doubt ful states have all been polled tw or three times, and with a fair Idea of the situation thus derived the Republicans make bold to claim the election, and buck up their claims by offering betting odds. The Republican managers lay claim to 23S electoral votes certain. These include the following states: New England .... Pennsylvania Ohio Iowa South Dakota .... North 'Dukola ... Wisconsin Illinois Indiana Ntw Yolk lieluware New Jersey Maryland Kentucky 3 :! 2J 13 4 S IL' 114 1!

They admit the un certainty of the state of Michigan, but National Committeeman Durbtn, who has been especially commissioned to look after that state, says that the lie publicans had a hard tight there, and hud the election been held a month ago would have lost the state, but that now he feels confident of carrying it. The Republicans are more hopeful of success in Nebraska than in Kansas. California, they are willing to concede. Is extremely doubtful. There will be no rainbow chasing in the southern states this year, notwith standing the rumored designs on Tex us, Louisiana, Alabama, and North Carolina, attributed to Senator Quay. One of the best informed of the Ke- nublican managers today, who went over the situation carefully, admitted that the Republicans had no hopes ol carrying any of the southern states, except Kentucky, and that they re graded as absolutely certain. WISCONSIN CONCEDED TO RE PUBLICANS. A month ago the Democrats were confidently claiming Wisconsin, and the Republicans thought it was doubt ful. But after a close survey of the situation they withdrew all of their campaign efforts from that territory, and since that time have sent no ora tors into the state, and distributed no literature there. The local leaders In the Badger state assured the National committee that there was no doubt whatever concerning Wisconsin, and urged 'the committee to send their lit erature and orators elsewhere that they might do some good. National Committeeman Henry C. Payne is pre pared to wager on Wisconsin giving the Republican ticket 40.000. Private ly the Democrats concede that they have no hope of carrying Wisconsin, and very little hope of carrying Iowa. The Republican committee announced today that It was ready to give odds on Iowa, giving McKlnley iii.oOO. The situation In Minnesota, Republi cans say, has brightened up wonder fully in the last three weeks, although the Republicans do not feel sufficiently assured to place it In the column of McKlnley states. The Democrats have made some stiff claims on Minnesota, based upon the alleged defection of the Swedish voters, who are usually Re publicans, but who, It Is asserted, are this year enamored of free silver. Sec retary of State Berg, a popular repre sentative of the Swedish Republican vote in Minnesota, was here a day or so ago and claimed that the state would give fiO.000 Republican majority, but the national Republican managers re fuse to accept any such rosy claims, as accurate, and will keep up their fight until the eve of the election, on the theory that Minnesota is a doubtful state. WYOMING MAY BE FOR M'KINLEY Wyoming is one of the alleged doubt ful states, in which the Republicans have been doing efficient work lately, and which they are now led to believe they will carry. Senator Warren was here Saturday, and dined with the members of the Republican National Executive committee. He went over the field in detail, and told the man agers that he believed the state would be carried for McKlnley. A month ago the outlook was not very favorable. When Congressman Hartman was here a few days ago, he expressed the opin ion that Wyoming was the only doubt ful state west of the Missouri river. He conceded that the Republicans would carry Wisconsin and Iowa, and that it was useless for the Democrats to make any light in these states. He intimated that he thought the chances for Republican success In Wyoming were good, for the reason that the state had no large mining interests like Idaho. Montana, Colorado, and other neighboring localities, HOPING TO CARRY OREGON. In spite of the optimistic view which Congressman Hartman took of the oth er Western states, the Republicans have not given up the idea of carrying Oregon, and have received some en couraging news from the local leaders there In the past week. No discourag ing letters have come to the committee from Republicans there. Another "straw" from which the Republicans take courage Is the fact that one of the leading sporting characters of Port land, who has won a reputation through that region for "calling the turn" on elections, and whose "tip" on results passes current In sporting circles, is wagering all his money on Oregon giv ing its electoral vote to McKlnley, This man Smith, whose rert In Portland la widely known, has wagered already $30,000 on McKlnley, and is taking alt offer. The Republicans arc not In the least discouraged over the Democratic de- signs on the state of Ohio. When the subject was mentioned at the h;d qarters today, William H. Hahn J thoriaed the statement that he was ready to wager any amount ot money that Ohio would give McKlnley 60,000. STATE COLLEQE COUNCIL Governor Hastings Presides at V'ni versity Meeting. Harrlsburg, Oct. 6. Governor Hast ings presided at a meeting of the state college and university council this af ternoon. A report on entrance require ments for colleges was presented and a minimum standard was adopted. The council considered the preliminary draft of the biennial report to be sub mitted to the legislature. It will lie a comprehensive report. Legislation is recommended requiring approval by the council before any changes can be made in the names, location or govern ing body of existing institutions. The purpose of this legislation Is to prevent abuses such as were practiced by cer tain notorious medical colleges In Phil adelphia, w hich sold degrees. Legisla tion is also recommended with a view to elevating the common school sys tem. The report reviews post graduate and original work done at our higher Institutions and states the number of students who have gone to college from the state normal schools. There has been an encouraging growth In the col leges during the last quarter of a cen tury. A committee on legislation was appointed, consisting of Chancellor Holland, of the Western University; Provost Harrison, of the University of Pennsylvania: Attorney General Mc cormick and the superintendent of public Instructions. FLORIDA ELECTIONS. People Are Dissatisfied with the Aus traliao Ballot Law and a Very Light Vote Is Cast. Jacksonville. Flu.. Oct. fi.-Tlie elec tion in Florida tuduy passed off quiet ly, but the meagre returns so far re ceived Indicate that u very light Vole nui cast. Tile election wus held under the Austrullnii ballot law and reports show that Dctiiociuts. Republicans aud Populist alike ure ilissiitlslled with it. only very meagre returns are being received, as the count Is exceedingly slow, owing to the length of the bul lot. otlblul returns will not be in until tomorrow or next day, but estimates tonight place the Democratic majority at not over 2V,UUU, and It may fall con siderably below that figure. There were three complete suite tickets In the Held Democrats. Republican and Pop ulist and the Prohibitionists had a candidate for governor. It was the first time the Republicans had a ticket in the Held since 184a. The lightness of the vote Is attributed to the new elec tion law and to the recent storm which swept the state. The Republicans will probably have four und perhaps six members of the legislature out of u total of one hun dred. This legislature elects a succes sor to I'nited States Senator Cull, and It is not likely that he will be returned, although a sliver Democrat will un doubtedly be chosen. - ' GEORGE FRED DECLINES. Will Not Accept the Moininiition for Governor of Mussacliusctt. Boston. Mass., Oct. 6. Hon. George Fred Williams today noti fied the secretary of slate, Olln, that he would not accept the nomina tion for governor made by the Fanueil hall convention. Tills convention was composed of the leaders of the regular Democratic party, who declared that they were unable to gain entrance to Music Hall, where the Democratic state convention was advertised to be held. The question as to the legality of the Fanueil hall and Music hull conven tions will be heard by the ballot com missioners tomorrow. In his letter Mr. Williams declared the Faneuil hall gathering was not a Democratic con vention and had no authority to certify his uoniinutlon for governor. Mr. Will iams' name will not bo withdrawn, however, as he did not fill out the speci fied form of withdrawal. Hud he tilled out the blank, the fact would have in volved an admission that the Faneuil hall meeting was really the "Demo cratic convention." VICTIMS OF WE WRECK.

GOLDEN , ROD AT SELLERSBURQ The Speaker (Jains Points by Work lug Object liessoutonthe Audieucc. Makes the I'snal Plea lor the Cioltl and Silver Coinage ol' the Con stitution. Seymour. Ind., Oct. 6. The Bryan meeting at New Albany this morning held a decided silver tince, four gray horses drew the carriage that drew Mr. Bryan from the station, where his special train arrived at 8.10 through Silver Btreet, to Silver Grove, the place of the meeting, a few blocks dis tant. An audience unusually large for the hour of morning, was assembled there. It numbered between BOO and 1,000, who were assembled around the sides of a natural amphitheatre, in the centre of which Mr. Bryan spoke. Fif teen white roses, representing the fif teen electoral votes of Indiana, were presented to Mr. Bryun by the lady clerks of the New Albany postofllce. Mr. Bryan referred to the present in his remarks. He said: Mr. t'hairiiiuu. Luilles und Otitlemen: From the manner in which you have ui plailded the sentiment that there was not enough money, I imagine thut there urn very rew In l tits uudienee who ure ularnied at any prospect of a flood of money. tOlieersl. It Is one thing tliul hus excited my sympathy to find occasionally the man who hud never hud too much money in all his life.

(Applause!. My friends, e are preaching a doctrine which we be lieve to be sound, and thut doctrine is this thai the only wuy to slop falling prices Is to increase the umoiint of money to bj exchuiiKcd for properly. Iii conclusion he said: I believe that If the people lire allowed to vote US they pleuse, we will succeed, and more tliun that, 1 believe that they will sluihlv increase the number of our votes, because men will insist thut If a men bus good arguments und he will ap peul to tile reason and that is an evldenc" that he has no ease when he uttempt to use force to buck up his position. (Cheers). GREKTKI) WITH GOI,DKN ROD. It was raining when Mr. itryan reached Sellersburg at 9 o'clock. Hats of golden hue were conspicuous among the crowd of a thousund there, and u number of people wore bunches of gol den rod. Mr. Bryan asked how many In the crowd believed the gold slandurd was a good thing and up went a score or more of hands. "Quite a number," he added. "Now, I want you people who raise up your hands to tell me why did not the Republican party pledge itself to get rid of the gold standard and substitute bimetallism as soon as for eign nations will help us to do It," (This caused loud cheering.) "Now, you men who held up your hands and said you thought a gold standard Is a good thing. If the Repub lican party thought so, why did not It have the courage to say so and not de clare that bimetallism is better than the gold standard? (Cheers followed by query). A dozen or two held up their hands and said the gold standard is a good thing. "Now. hold up some gold, some of you, who said the gold standard was a good thing. (Cheers of a wild char acter). Let me see your gold." I'p went a hand, and in it was a gold coin. Mr. Bryan nodded and said one man out of those not exceeding two dozen who held up their hands had gold. "It is not even 16 to 1, my friends. (Ap plause and laughter). You take 16 men who believe In a gold standard nnd there will be not more than one of them that has any gold, the standard that he said was good. We want a standard that furnishes the kind of money we want. We do not want to praise one kind of money and never get a chance to see It. We do not want money so scarce that few financiers can corner that money and then dole It out at such a price as they will. A few men can corner It at any time. Mr. Mc Klnley said five years ago that when you discriminate against sliver you make money the master, and all things else the servants. Those who want money to be the master can vote for the Republican ticket and all the rest of you can loin with ub to restore the gold and silvet coinage of the constitu tion." (Great cheering). All along the route to Indianapolis the demonstrations were repeated. At Seymour four or five thousand people heard Mr. Bryan, a throng between 8.000 and 10.000 was at Columbus. Edln bttrg turned out 3.000 and Franklin nearly. If not quite, 5,000. Indianapolis was reached at 1.15 and Mr. Bryan was given a hearty reception along the streets through which he passed to the Grand hotel. ' SPEECH AT SEYMOUR. Indianapolis, Oct. 6. In the course of his speech to the crowd at Seymour, Mr. Bryan said: The vote from the west has usually been Republican. This year the- people out west-are solid on the mney question anil no one doubts what the result Is going to be there. (Cheersl. I want to cull your attention here In Indiana to a portion of a message sent to congress by .Mr. Harri son when he was president In 1MH. Let me reud you what he says about the effect of legislation on silver. You will remem ber thut this was Just after the passage of the Sherman law. It was signed by President Harrison, und after Its passage the price of silver rose to $1.11 per ounce, (in the first of December, of thut year. President Harrison sent his message to congress and In that messuge you will find these words: "The enlargement of our currency by the silver undoubtedly gave uu upward tendency to trude and hud a marked ef fect on prices, but this natural und desired effect of the silver legislation was by many erroneously attlrbuted to the turlff act." My friends, principles do not change with euch passing year and a truth spoken six years ugo remains the truth, ulthough the man who spuke It may be sorry that ho ever spoke the truth und may be deter mined never to do so aguin. (Cheers). ATTENTION TO BYNUM. At Columbus, among other things, Mr. Bryan said: You will remember that there was once a member of congress from this slute named William L. Bynum. Let me reud to you what Mr. Bynum suld in regard to the gold stunilard in lm. I quote 4 mm the Congressional Record: "It In because of the shrinkage of values, as well as the detriment to labor thut 1 raise my voice and utter a protest una Inst a Crusade which has been In the past so persistently waged In the Hat money In terests." -V. My friends, we still wage this warfare against the money Interests, although Mr. Bynum has gone to the other side. (Cheers). The people of the west are In debt, their farms, their homes, nod In many instances their beds are mortgaged. They tutve been paying an exorbitant In terest to the east until thev die Imnovm-. lined. The prices' of their product hn fallen, their lands have shrunk In value until they begin to stagger under the welKht of their burden. My friends, those farmers are In worse condition today than they were when Mr. Bynum so eloquently pleaded their cause and we shall still plead their cause, I don't care how many turn their backs upon them and turn oppressor. Instead of leader. (Great applause). Great crowds witnessed Mr. Bryan's passage through the streets here to his hotel. At the Grand hotel there was a big fjsh and the throng cheered the nominee enthusiastically. After lunch eop he went to the state house, where he delivered an address. DANF0RTH ISENCOURAGED. Kspects to Carry New York lor Bryan and Sew nil. New York, Oct. 6. The meeting of the Democratic, county chairmen ot the state this afternoon lasted two hours. About forty of the county chairmen were present and those who could not attend sent letters of apology. Chairman Danforth. at the conclu sion of the reading of the reports, ex pr -sed his gratification at the bright ounook for the Democratic purty in the state. "I am much encouraged." said Mr. Danforth. "ut the reports 1 have heard, if the county chuirmen are cor rect." suld he, "we will curry New York for Bryan and Sewnll." It was estimated from the reports at the meeting that the Republican ma jority in the state would be cut down by ut least 4(1,1100. CUBAN WArIrESUMED. Fierce Battles at Loma Spanish Troops Dislodge the Rebels After a Fight of Five Hours. Havana. Oct. 6. Lieutenant-Colonel Orenudos reports that shortly after his cidui'iu left Pluur del Rio city that he found ul Giimu und Cautubria a Span ish column surrounded by H.OOO rebels whu had been sent by Maceo to utluck the Spaniards. Lieutenunt-Cololiel Grunudos made a vigorous attack upon the enemy, who lired twelve cannon shots ut close range. A prompt re treat to Cuiitabria saved Grunudos' fommjtml, as well us the Spanish troops, which hud been surrounded. The Spanish forces were united at Cuntubrla and In the ' meantime the rebels had taken positions at Loma, The united Spanish forces made an at tack upon he rebels, who were dis lodged from their positions after a fight lusting 'five hours. The rebels lost eighty killed and a large number wounded. The Spaniards had twelve killed and ninety-two wounded, In cluding four otllcers. Lieutenant-Colonel Granudos had started to march back to Plnur del Rio when at 3 p. m. he heard cannonading on the other side of the hills. The rebels occupied good and extensive positions. The bat tle began at 9 o'clock In the morning. The enemy made a stubborn defense, but were finally dislodged with a loss of one hundred killed. It Is said that when they retired they carried away two hundred wounded. The Spanish losses were: Lieutenant Colonel Ro mero and General Rental's adjutant, killed; Lieutenant Colonel Chattel and eight other olllcers wounded; eighteen privates killed and sixty-live wounded. FIREMEN AT JOHNSTOWN. Scrnnton's Xante Will .Not lie Pre sentcd for the Next Convention. Special to the Scranton Tribune. Johnstown. Pa., Oct. 6. The streets of Johnstown present a lively appear ance, the occasion being the seven teenth annual convention of the State Firemen's association. The greatest disappointment was that all saloons close at JO o'clock sharp. During the whole night caucuses were held in the different headquarters and this morn ing after some close figuring it was de cided not to present the name of Scran ton. That Scranton would have won easily was apparent had the false ar ticles appearing in the Scranton pa pers not been used throughout the stale by some unscrupulous persons at the session. This afternoon Isudore Goodman was nominated for vice-president and will receive the support of the entire Wllkes-Barre delegation. As there are five other candidates besides him and only four to be elected some great hustling will have to be done this evening. The banquet takes place this evening and It is expected it will eclipse any ever held in honor of the state as sociation. The Scranton party are well cared for at the Capital hotel. Tomorrow mornins the vole Is to be taken, but will not create any great excitement as the only contest is that for vice-president. I'nder the circum stances it was decided to not present Scranton for the next convention. NO ARBITRATION YEl. Great Britain Has No Time to Con- sider the Venezuelan Question. London.Oct. 6. Information has been furnished to the United Associated Presses that no communications have passed between Great Britain and the t'nlted States on the subject of arbi tration In over a month. Important developments In connection with Vene zuela, however, will probably occur within the month of October. A settle ment of the Venezuela dispute Is by no means Imminent and It is not true, as has been alleged, that Great Britain is making concessions to Venezuela. Much depends upon Mr. Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies, who sailed from New York for England on September H0, though his desires In the matter are subject to the approval of Lord Salisbury. The hitter, the foreign office otliciuls say, Is hopeful that the arbitration question will be soon solved, but he is at present very much occu pied with the eustern question. THE NEWS THIS MORNING.

LESSON OF THE BLAST FURNACE The Champion ol Protection Points Out the Causes of CxiABtjg Condi tions--Srntimrut ia Favor ol' Plenty ol Work; Good Times, iiood Wages anjl Good Money. Canton. O., Oct. 6. A delegation of enthusiastic Republicans from Kast Brady, in the Democratic county of Clarion, Pa., came In the rain to call on Major McKlnley this morning. The spokesman, N. E. Graham, said that there were thirty-one furnaces In the county under the McKlnley law and not one of them In Must. Some of the men In the delegation bore banners in scribed: "IMiitocruts from Clarion county." The delegation was made up of miners, farmers and workingmen. Major McKlnley addressed it as fol lows: Your spokesman tells us that In your county thirty-one blast furnuces have been stopped. What does that mean? It means that wages have been stopped. It means thut labor bus Is-en unemployed. It meuns that comforts have been taken away from hundreds or American homes which they hud previously enjoyed. Jt means dis tress, und what is true of this county,1 has been substantially true possibly not to so laixw u deKree of other counties of your stule and throughout tha entire country. -Now, what we want to do, whether we urn railroad men, or farmers, or professional men, or mechanics, or la boring men, Is .to get back to a policy that will give us u chance, to increase our iimniH'ttcturing, Improve or home market, extend our foreign market, and give em ployment every day In the year to every wurkliiKinun who wants work. Itliva.1 cheering and cries of "Thai's whut we want.") If we will but follow the lamp of exper ience and follow the direction which the IlKhl of that lamp leads us, on the third day of November will vote down the pol icies which have brought us these condi tions und vote to continue u monetary system built upon a solid basis, which will give us the best money In the world, a money which panics cannot disturb und business failure cannot depreciate, (Tre mendous cheering and cries of "Pennsyl vania will vote that way.") We want good times, plenty of work, good wages and good money. (Applause and cries of "That's the stun".") How will you vote? (Cries of "For .McKlnley, followed by great cheering.") Rain fell steadily through the after noun today and Major McKlnley had to welcome the visiting delegations at the Tabernacle. A delegation of nlne-ty-five lumbermen from Buffalo and Tonawanda arrived on a special train at 3 o'clock. We represent one hundred and fifty Arms, engHKcd in the lumber business and our delega tlon is composed of almost equal number of Democrat and Republicans, sum tne spokesman, M. s. Barnes, to Ma jor McKlnley, und what is more we handled a thousund million feet of lumber annually prior to the enactment of the present revenue laws, worth 130,ullO,OUO. TO THE LUMBERMEN. Major McKlnley was vigorously and repeatedly cheered when he arose to speak. He said In part; This Is a year, as you spokesman has well said, that party ties are nut strong enough to hold any patriot within H who believes that his party has ceased to rep resent the highest and best interests of our glorious republic. (Applause). I do not think we appreciate the great indus try which you represent ujid of which you are a part one of the greatest In the country". In 1KD0 the lake trade in lumber ut Buffalo was over .'IHi'.imo.imd feat, and at Tonawanda. over 717.1SW.IKH feet. (Ap plauce). Though, under the lumber pro visions of the present tariff taw the trade of Buffalo has since decreased until, ill 18!t., It was M.0),UM feet less than in 1890, while thut of Tonawanda has shrunk In the same time more than 2!,,nuil,fl00 feet. Canadian free lumber has been encouraged at the expense of the. lumber interests of the great state of New York ind all the other lumber stales of thi American Union. I may be pardoned, gentlemen, If I say In this presence that I believe in the policy that gives preference to Buf falo and Tonawanda rather than to Mon. treal and Toronto. (Tremendous cheers). Like all the other featuria of free trade It has helped to make us poor for the ad vantage of other people living In another jurisdiction and who owe no allegiance to our Hag. (Renewed cheering). Did yoot ever reflect how it would help the prices of real estate und of buildings to have all values unsettled and the. valid ity of contracts thrown Into Jeopardy? The history of the world prove that real estate suffers most severely in every pe riod of financial distress and of all prop erty It recovers the slowest. The triumph of sound money und protection at the polls in November will, in my Judgment, restore confidence anil thereby help every species of business and when that is doll" your business will share in the general advancement and prollt by the general prosperity. (Great applause). In the evening the Syracuse Repub lican escort, bearing colored flambeaux, and followed by the delegation from that city and by all of the uniformed campaign clubs of Canton, marched up to Major McKlnley's residence and were received by him. The visitors were cordially applauded along the line of march, and they made the most effective night parade that has been witnessed here. Among Major McKlnley's callers to day was A. M. Higgins, president of the Republican League clubs, of Indi ana, Mr. Hlgglns told Major McKln ley that Indiana would give him a plur ality exceeding 15,000. Mark Hannu. Is expected here tomorrow afternoon. THE CZAR AT PARIS. Incidents at the Banquet Given at the Palace of the Elysee. Paris, Oct. 6. At the banquet at the Palace of theKlyseethls evening Presi dent Faure, In proposing a toast In honor of the C7.nr, said: "Your Maj esty's presence here has, amid the ac clamations of our whole people, scaled the ties uniting our two countries in harmonious activity amid mutual con fidence in their destinies. The union of your powerful empire and our laborious publio has already exercised a bene ficial effect upon the peace of the world. Fortified by tried lldelity, It will continue to spread its fortunate influence everywhere." The Czar, In replying to the toast, said: "I am deeply touched by the welcome extended to the empress and myself in great Paris, the center of so much genius, taste and light. Faithful to imperishable tradition 1 have iume to France to greet in you, monsieur president, the chief of the nation to which we are united by such precious ties. As you have said, the union cun not but produce by Its constancy a most fortunate Inlluence. I beg you to Interpret these sentiments to the whole of France." Herald's Weather Portrait. New York.
