J WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 19,-Tho
Eur says:
j? A gentleman In the government serH
vice, a resident of New York City, who
lis well known In Washington, and
?hKc views as. to the political situation
H.. v.w Ynrlc state may be occopted as
Ill ,
being absolutely, reliable, returned to
this city to-day from a trip to the metropolis
f?r thQ purpose of registering,
In order that ho may vote In November,
jn discussing the situation aa he observed
It with a reporter of tJic Star
this morning, he said:'
"New York City being ray native
heath, and having been raised In tho
Twelfth and Eighth congressional dls:
rricts, which are on the east aide, north
and south of Twenty-third street, and
embrace the Tenderloin and hotel sections,
I know something about the town.
I made it a point to' talk politics with
every man I met, and being a member
of the Republican organization of
my assembly district and also frequently
visiting the national Republican
headquarters, I had peculiarly favorable
opportunities of observing the Intensely
interesting political battle which is
now being fought.
"It Is my Judgment ,and my conclusions
are largely based on Inside information
which I received at national Republican
headquarters, that the Democratic
majority south of the Bronx will
not certainly be over 75,000. Mr. Croker.'s
kite-soaring figures and claims
to the contrary, notwithstanding. In
fact, Mr. Croker is a prince of bluffers.
Ills alleged heavy bets are simply part
of the desperate game he Is playing. He
Is. however, right up against the push.
Senator Piatt, Col. J. H. Manley, Senator
Scott and the other Republican
leaders can give him cards and' spades
at his own game and beat him, and not
only have the7 thus far forestalled the
Tammany sachem In many of his most
important playa on the political chessboard,
but they have again checkmated
and discounted him time and again.
This fact Alls New York Republicans
with unalloyed and uncontrollabla Joy,
and Tammany's chief and the Democratic
leaders at their .national headi
quarters with corresponding chagrin.
Large Majority for HcKinley.
"At this stage It is confidently be
llnvwl hv thn Pi>niihlli>nn mnnncnpu
IMadlso.i avenue that the up-state majority
will be at least 150,000, and that
McKlnley's majority In the state will
be from 75,000 to 70,000. The heavy Increase
In registration In Republican
(districts and falling off In Democratic
districts substantiates this view. The
'Democrats stand no more chance of
carrying my state than they do of carrying
Maine. These figures are exceedingly
conservative, and Jf the tide of
Republican sentiment which begins to
How strongly about the 1st of October,
snd which was running with Increased
and irresistible volume and force during
the time I was In the state and
which it Is believed will Increase at a
corresponding high pressure and ratio,
the President majority will be over
100,000. In fact, Committeeman Glbbs
bet with National Committeeman Norman
Mack, of Buffalo, 5500 even money
that the state would go over 100,000 for
McKinley, so you see my figures are
very conservative, as I am not permitting
myself to be nwayed by sentiment
"You see, there has been a tremendous
change of sentiment In New York
City and state within the last fortnight.
The astounding blufilng claims of
Mr. Bryan and Chairman Jones as to
their ability to carry the state paralyzed,
as It were, New York Republicans
for the moment bccause of their
monumental effrontery. When they recovered
their breath they started in to
give the party for which Mr. Bryan
stands as the supreme boss series after
series of solar plexus blows right where
It lives, and by election day It will be |
as limp In my state as the proverbial
rng.
The Business Interests Solid.
"I wish to lay particular stress upon
the strength of the business movement
for McKlnley which Is now In full swing
both In the city and in the state. The
business men constitute the backbone of
thi Republican party In New York
state. It Is a revelation to ride down
town in the Broadway cars and see the
countless huge American Hags with the
words. '.McKlnley and Roosevelt,' In
large letters on the pole end of the flag.
The regulation campaign banner has
been abandoned by the Republicans for
this emblem, though it Is still rctaJned
by the Democrats, and the only Democratic
banner I saw In all this great
district la the one nt the head of Wall
street and Broadway.
"The meetings of the Dry Goods Men's
C'lub, at SCO Broadway, are packed
dally. All the great industries, including
the hardware, the Jewelers, paper
and associated trades, leather, oil, clothing,
cloaks and suits, tobacco and the
different exchanges ere represented by
clubs, the membership of which runs up
Into the thousands, respectively. The
business men's parade on November 3,
In which every marcher, will carry a
small American flag, promises to be the
must stupendous outpouring on any one
particular day of business men that the
/treat metropolis has ever hocn, and they
ire used to big parades up there, too. It
Is expeeted thnt over 130,000 business
men will bu Ir. thc.niftr?h.
Same Sentiment Up-Stnte.
'From advices received nt Rcpubllenn
h'-adquarturs I learned thnt this overwhelming
swing to McKlnley Is partlc'l'ated
In by the business men In the
and towns throughout the state,
when? the sound money nnntlmr>nt in
v'-ry ftrnnjf. IVopic |n the south Jo
"?l comprehend tin- mnCTlludc of thin
v'ite. which, combined an It Is thin fall,
Prevents a solid wall of Irresistible
"rnni;th npilnst Democratic on"laiiKhin.
Furthermore, the nepuhllcars
la New York Mate are having ab?iutely
no trouble with tho labor voto.
This Is very slgmlflcant, and of the i
greatest Importance. There never was
a time in the history of the empire j
state when organized' labor received
higher wages than they do at present, |
"nor has there been a tlmo when the per I
capita of savings banks deposits were
as large aa now. This means thousands
of votes for the Republican party. The
farmers^ too, from accurate advices re- i
cently received at Republican' headquarters,
arc with'the party that stands
for national honor and expansion, and
it Is expected in the fow Democratic
counties up-state which heretofore returned
Democratic majorities that these
majorities will bo greatly reduced, and
,in somo counties entirely overcome.
There .is absolutely no anti-lmperialls^
tic sentiment in New York state. The.
DPonlR noflltlvplv rofusn to n^cent ttil*
Ibsuo at tho handa of the Democrats,
as they do the alleged Issue of militarism.
The great Issues seem to mo to
be sound money, prosperity, maintenance
of national honor, the unqualified
support of the President's policies and
the continuance for four year? more .of
the carrying of the full dinner pall. New
,York Is filled with men who work, of all
shades, classes and degrees, and they
all want the best dollar they can get for
their dally wage and the fullest dinner
.pall they can lug.
Foreign Voters Indignant at Jones.
"I will tell you of one very significant
fact. The so-called foreign vote is not
entirely with the Democrats.this year,
and thousands of these voters have
como over to tho Republican party.
The Republican managers are celebrating
by the hundreds of thousands
folders In twelve different languages
Chairman Jones' remarks delivered on
January 20, 1S97, In which occur these
words: "Hundreds of thousands of Ignorant
foreigners, who were taking bread
out of the mouths of honest labor, voted
at the last election at the dictation of
McKlnlcy's supporters. These foreigners
comprise fully one-half of the number
of votes received by McKlnley. Can
there be any doubt as to which will prevail,
the six and one-half ^millions of
Intelligent. Bryan voters or the three
and one-half millions of Ignorant foreigners
who voted for McKlnley?'
"These foreign-born voters constitute
a large proportion of New York's voting
population, and they are very sensitive,
and resent most keenly these
words of Chairman Jones, which they
take as a direct insult ,10 themselves, as
they are duly qualified citizens of the
United States, and arc very angry at
Chairman Jones' designation of them as
Ignorant foreigners.'
Heavy Gold Democratic Vote
"It is estimated at the Republican
headquarters that the'endorsement of
McKlnley by John D. Crlmmlns, a leading
Catholic, one of the largest contrac
tors ol the United States, and one of the
most popular and widely known men in
the city will carry with it at'-'least 20,000
votes for McKlnley Bouth of the
Bronx. Mr. Crlmmlns' reasons for supporting:
McKlmley were stated by him
very clearly and in a manner whieh
appealed with peculiar force to the Irish
American and other naturalized voters.
"There is a tremendous Gold Democratic
vote in the city and state. While
some of this vote was inclined during
the earlier stages of tho campaign, to
support Bryan, It is believed as election
day approaches and the disastrous results
of Bryan's election become daily
more apparent that the great majority
of this vote will bo given to McKlnley.
As to the business men who arc Gold
Democrats this Is absolutely certain.
Kings County for McKlnley.
"Brooklyn, which comprises Kings
county, will be carried by McKlnley by
a majority of from 10,000 to 15,000. Some
of the Republican leaders claim It by
20,000. Kings county has been normally
a Democratic stronghold by 20,000 and
over, but the sentiment this fall In the
city of churches Is very strong for McKlnley,
ns there 1b a very heavy and decisive
Independent vote there. Brooklynites
are terribly sore on Croker. As
a Democratic leader who stands very
close to Boss McLaughlin said to me:
'Croker hogs the whole push and glveB
us nothing.' In fact, three of the congressional
districts In Kings courtly
which are ordinarily surely Democratic
are now doubtful. Tho Democratic
campaign In Brooklyn Is lifeless and
listless, and It Is conceded to be the quietest
campaign cvor had on that side of
the East river. The city Is filled with
Sound Money Democrats, of which 05
per cent will vote for McKlnlcy.
"Queens county, which 1b a part of
Greater New York, and has a normal
Democratic majority of from 3,000 to
5,000, will probably go for McKinley for
the same reasons which obtain In the
II ?
' "Well, I say that the very
best of men don't know the
difference between their souls
afid their stomachs, and they
fancy that they arc a-wrestling
with their doubts when really
it is their dinners they're awrestling
with.
"Take my old man. A kinder
husband never drew breath;
yet so sure as he toucH'es a bit
of pork he begins to worry
Iiisself about the doctrinc of
Election, till I say, " I'd be
ashamed to go troubling the
minister with my doubts when
an Aver's Pill would set things
straight again."

ELECTION EXCITEMENT I

NEW YORK, Oct. 19.?R. G. Dun & Is
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade to-mor- i|
row will fay: ^
A settlement of the coal strike satis- v
facory to all interests having been ef- b
fccted, business breathes more freely c
In the cast, and distribution of merchandise
Is Increasing slowly again, r
though the election excitement keops i
new buying In many lines down to d
wants for Immediate consumption. In ^
the west, 'there la not tho same hesita- ?
tlon, and there, as well as in the south, n
the marketing of the crops is rcsponsl- 1
ble for a feeling of much confidence In j'j
the movement of business If the nation
acts conservatively at the polls. Prices t
of commodities arc weaker, and the I:
caution so gratifying in a presidential ?
year keeps speculation at a minimum. u
Further Decline of Cotton. h
Cotton further declined, making the *
loss about 56 a bale In two weeks. Plan- a
ters are rushing work and picking Is
expcctcd to progress rapidly enough to b
save most of the crop from early frost. c
High prlccs make It possible to pay
good wages to pickers, and the movement
at receiving points Increase largely.
Domestic spinners are not liberal
buyers, but exports are only slightly
smaller than i year ago. Foreign buy-1
Ing Increased with the recent sharp de- j
cllne. Wheat has shown more weakness, j
due In' part to the creator activity at.
Russian ports, and Atlantic exports for I n
the week were only 2.647,325 bushels,
against 3,270,226 bushels a year ago. n
Corn also declined, but Is six cents I c
above last year, which may account for j ?
the loss In exports in three weeks, 7,654,- \\
765 bushels, against 10,924,406 In 1809.
Small Advance in. Bessemer. j p
Few Important fluctuations occurred ' ^
In Iron and steel, but there were small' a
advances In Bessemer pig at Pittsburgh '
and billets at Philadelphia. Moderate j E
gains ara reported in the volume of,
transactions, although the tendency Is; t]
to delay large contracts a few weeks. I
Implement makers take bar Iron freely, \ tl
however, and orders for pipe are urgent, ; Ci
with severe weather coming on. Struc- ! p
tural shapes arc taken for foreign
polrrtH as far distant as Egypt, and do- j e
mcstlc bridge builders buy freely. More j ^
mills have gone Into blast, and the gsn- !
eral tone Is improving. Production of j
cckc has Increased, but prlccs are cosy j ^
and many ovens are still idle. Tin declined
again, making the fall 1% cents n
In two weeks, and six ccnts from the Vi
high point In July.
Leather and Hides Firm
Leather and hides are firm and selling
freely bccause of steady improve- u
ment In demand for boots and shoe?.
Jobbers are placing large orders with "1
manufacturers, and demand is no longer j
liable to fall and winter goods. Con-1
tract grades are Increasing at an en- !
couraglng rate, although an effort la j
made to keen those saint an milnt :?? '
possible, owing to the cfteit on the mnr- |
ket for raw material. WhKs woolen "
mills nre not working at full capacity, r|
more seasonable weather has Increased j V
buying In this line, and purchases of I j!
wool at the thruc chief eastern markets ' ^
Increased to 4.524.000 pound*, thy best! rl
totnl for a long time, although still far j
below the amount taken through spec- J
ulntlve nctlvlty u year ago. Prices art'. c,
steady, and holders show no loss of ?

Every woman loves to think of tho'
tlmo whan a soft little body, all her
own, will nestle In her bosom, fully
satisfying ihe yearning which lies In
the heart of everv rand n?i?
yet there la & black cloud hovering
about the pretty picture In her mlna
which fills her with terror. The
dread of childbirth takea away much
of the Joy of motherhood. And yet it
need not be so. For sometime there
has been upon the markat, well-known
and recommended by physicians, a
lln'ment called
(Mer's MtM
which makes childbirth as simple and
i oasy as nature intended It. It is a
strengthening, penetrating liniment,
whleh the skin readily absorbs. It
1 gives the muscles elasticity and vigor,
prevents sore breasts, morning slckI
nesa and the loss of tho girlish figure.

Tho Dally Chronicle of Wheeling's
Progressive Neighbor.
One of the interesting features of the
parade at Wheeling Thursday evening
for the residents of this city, was the
prominence of one of our stalwart Democrat
in a Khaki uniform and riding
a gallant Bteed. One that Is not only
prominent in Democratic circles here,
but also a city office-holder. It was the
principal subject for discussion 'on the
streets yesterday, the Roosevelt meeting
being a secondary consideration. Tt
is alto stated that that gentlemnn is on
the fence and 1.1 quite likely-to drop the
right way in a few days, being aware
of the fact that by so doing he has all
to gain and nothing to lose.
Through an error of one of the typesetters
yesterday morning the number
of people that had congregated at the
Wheeling & Luke Erie station to see
and hear Governor Roosevelt Thursday
morning was greatly underestimated.
The report should have read according
to the copy furnished, that 4.000
people thronged around the station Instead
of 200 as the article read.
