RUMORSOF THE SITUATION Reportsof tha Outlook In Ohio-^How Matter* Stand In tha^tmp.re and other^Stataa. COLl'MBis,Ohio, Nur. 2.^Never since^lbs war bus a campaign been waged in^tha Buckeye stsie which attracted ^o^much general mlareat and which wan ^o^holly contested and so ^ xelusively de^^voted to national issuesas the one winch^cloned to-night with two of the ablest,^most representative gentlemen of the^male, ihe standard bearers of the respec^^tive parlies. The country at large has^been attracted and national leaders and^recognised exponents of both parties^summoned to expound tha principles of^republicanism and democracy. The^joint debate of Caafpbell and McKinley^will long remain historical. John Sher^^man talked finance, Roger Q Mills an^awcrcd him; Secretary Foster discussed^national issues, William M. Springer,^Illinois, answerod bis arguments) ex-^S.ieuker Heed and Crisp stumped the^western reserve* Cannon and McMillan^discussed Ihe tariff aud the ^billion dol^^lar congress.^ State issues were almost^forgotten. There arts four complete state^tickets iu the Held. For governor, James^H. Campbell, tho present incumbent, the^democratic candidate! William McKin^^ley. jr.. republican; John Seiti, the peo^^ples' party's man; John J. Ashenburst,^prohibitionist. Tho tariff issue is clearly^defined, tha strife between the two great^parties for and against the McKinley law;^the prohibitionists declare for tar.IT only^as a means to international reciprocity;^the people's party demand taxation not^be uted to build up one interest at tba ex^^pense of another. Upon the financial^quest.on the republican parly endorsed^the amended coinage aet of the last^republican congress, by which the entire^product of the silver mines of tho United^States added lo the cuir^ncy of the peo^^ple. The democrats denounce the de^^^nonetiiitioti of silver in 187a; demand^the reinstatement of a constitutional^standard of both gold and silver, with an^equal right each to free and unlimited^coinage. Tho prohibitionists demand as^a circulating medium, gold, silver and^paper. The pet pies' party demand full^legal tender treasury notes to bo issued^in sufficient volume to conduct tha busi^^ness of tho country on a cash basic,^favors govt rntueut loans directly to the^people at a rate of interest not to exeeed^2 per cent, and tha unlimited coinage of^silver. MajorMcKinley having made frequent^references in his speeches to the growing^industry of manufacturers, a shar.^ con^^troversy arose over tho questiou of^v bother there was any growing tin in^^dustry, or even any tin t re in the United^States. The outlook is not easy to de^^termine. The opposition to Gov^^ernor Campbell in his own party, was so^pronounced In fore bis nomination, the^republicans had no thought of the^possibility of his- ataaaaaa, and placed Me-^K uley's majority at 30,0X10 and upwards;^but, as the campaign progressed, (be^voice of the opposition had been stifled^and the extent lesa and less apparent.^Am far as appearances go, the tight has^not been seriously influenced by the^people, and the republicans assert with^confidence a victory for McKinley, but^the dt mocrats claim they will elect Camp^^bell and the legislature. The uncertainties^are the effect of the Australian ballot^luw, tha strength of the peoples' purly^and the conclusions which Ohio farmers^and rural wool growers may have arrived^at on tariff and linancial questions. THE bMPiKK STATE. BothIhe Great Parties Confidant ml Sue^^ l.-.iy of i tie l.aud. Nf.w|M Nov. 2.^Tha canvass in^New York state is closed and it only re^^mains now lo await the verdict of the^polls. No more active campaign has been^nude in this state siuce the presidential^campaign. Tho prohibitionists and so^^cialists contented themselves with raak^ing nominations, but the democratic and^republican leaders, ever since the state^tickets were named, have been laboring^for success with unremitting seal. Their^orators have been constantly on the^stump; every inch of ground baa been^contested with an ardor b ^rn of convic^^tion that success or defeat carries with it^an influence patent for good or evil in the^national campaign of X'. JacobSloat Faascti, the republican^candidate for governor, developed fight^^ing qualities of tho first order. Ha has^spoken in almost every county and in all^the chief cities. The key note on which^be Is tinging all changes has been that^the Tammany tiger must be slain in its^lair, and tho various influence of Tain'^many ball, which, having the city of^New York at its feet, seeks to conquer^the stale and nation in turn mint b ^^i vei-thrown. The democratic wurcry is^tha t ^Piatt and his tool, Fassett,^ were^chiefly responsible for the failare of New^Yora city to capture the world's fair,^ltoswell V. Flower, the democratic candi^^date for governor, is lauded for his efforis^to secure the fair for New York. Little^prominence has been g ven to state issues^save in tho bandying of words over^the failure of the census bill ( mil the^consequent rei islrioting of the slate) by^reason of ditognerm nt as to Its terms^I etween the governor and the republican^majority in the state senate. 1'othparties profess confidence of^Vic'ory. The republicans. have atrong^ho|.^a of success on the healing of the^breach between the Piatt and Warner^Miller forces, and on entire harmony in^the party. Warner Mtller.ln proof of his^n conciliation, has spoken in warm^I i ai-e of the republican candidates, and^Andrew D. Weite has shown tbat he^rherisbes no grudge because the guber^^natorial nomination did not fall to him.^If to dispose of the long asserted unfriend^linesa Detween Governor Hill and Grover^Cleveland, these two ataleamtu have beancalled anon to apeak from the same^platform, and responded, giving no evi^^dence of a lack of cordiality. Cleveland^has given tha controversy what little^color It has received. He insisted upon^the absolute necessity of holding New^York iu the democratic column this year,^for the sake of effect on tho party in the^approaching national contest. G .vernor^Hill inada many speeches vigorously de^^fending the democratic regime, criticis^^ing Faasatt'a rccoid as senator^attd prophesying dire evils to^tha commonwealth should tha^PlattUm triumph. Ex-Senator Piatt^ptedicta a majority of 17.1X0 for Fassett.^Other prominent leaders make the pre^^dictions of 6,000 to 20.000. The^democratic leaders eve n more confidently^predict Flower's election by a majority o:^20.000 to ^0,000. Bettingon the result has been very^qu at here. Slight odds have been given^ill favor of Flower. Theaenato aud assembly are also to be^elected and both parlies are making a^fierce Aght for control. The senate has^52 members. Of tho present body, 19 Ma^republicans To create a tie aud thus^give the lieutenant governor the casting^vole, the democrats must make a net^gain of t lire ^. The democrat's vic^^tory would b) incomplete without a^democratic senate to confirm the ap^^pointments made by the governor, as the^republican majority baa for years refused^to confirm democratic nominations to^certain offices now filled by republicans^whose terms have expired. POLITICSIN IOWA. Outlookof Basalts at Ike Battle to Bs^^feecht at Ike Palls to-Day. Dr.sMoim.8, Nov. 2 ^The most excit*^ing e ff-yeur campaign in the history of^Iowa closed to-night. For three months^it baa been unremittingly waged, all par^^ties exerting every effort to bring out a^full vote to-morrow. A full state ticket^is to be elected. Four parties' candidates^are In the field. Horace Boies, the pres^^ent incumbent, is the democratic candi^^date for governor: Hiram C. Wheeler, re^^publican; A. j. Westfail, peoples' party;^Isaac T. Gibson, prohibitionist. The^three salient issues have been temper^^ance, tariff and ailver. The democrats^denounce tba present prohibitory law,^favoring local option with a license of^1500, denounce the McKinley bill and de^^clare) for free coinage. 'J bo republicans^endorse tba prohibitory law, denounce^tha democrats for obstructing its en^^forcement, commend the tariff legis^^lation of the last congress, meet^tho aiiver question by merely^approving tha present coinage act as an^expedient out of which may ult.mately^come a wise adjustment of the financial^question. Upon tbeso questions the^battle baa been fought. The saloon^question is probably the paramount issue,^i ho result of to-morrow's election la^difficult to audio*, ksaann of tha inter^^mit! giing of national issues, and many^discordant elements tbat outer Into tbe^campaign. Tha republicans are divided^on the prohibition question, tbe demo^^crats are divided on tho silver question,^so tbat on the tariff question alone have^party lines been at all tenaciously drawn.^Tba democrats make the tariff tbe^paramount issue, while the republicans,^hoping to absorb tbe greater part of the^prohibition vote, kept the liquor question^well in Ihe foreground. Bothparties coquetted with tbe silver^question and have tacitly striven to post^^pone this issue until after the national^convention next year. Upon one con^^clusion all parties are united) there will^be a full vote. Thefact that tba nest legislature will^redistrict the state adds greatly to^the Interest. Both parties making stren^^uous attempts to capture t lie general as^^sembly, as well as to elect state (Ulcers.^The republicans are confident they will^get the support of thousands of prohibi^^tionists, and claim a great ma^^jority of tba ' ^independent^ re^^publicans have gone back to^tba party. This claim is doubtless cor^^rect, as is equally so ihe democratic^claims that thousands of G-rman repub^^licans, and the liquor interests generally,^will support tba democratic ticket. Avery uncertain fact is the vote for^Westfail, the candidate of tbe people's^parly. He claims he will poll at least^40,000 votes. General Weaver says he^will get 26,000, bat republicans and demo^^crats do not concede Westfail over 15,-^000, These will probab'y coma in about^equal numbers from both tbe leading^parties. The prohibitionists do not ex^^pect to poll over 1,000 or 2,000 votes.^Chairman March of the republican state^central committee to-night estimates^Wheeler will have a plurality of at least^12,000. ^Tbe republicans of Iowa.^ said^he, ^will certainly elect tbe whole state^ticket by a handsome majority. Tbe^next bouse will be republican by a fair^majority abd the senate will have a ma^^jority of at least two. ChairmanFuller of the democratic^state committee placed the probable^democratic plurality at 11,000 to 18,(00,^based on reports most conservative.^Boles. It Is estimated, will run from 4,0*^to 8,000 ahead. THEFIGHT IN NEBRASKA. DemocratsOat of tbs field sad Itopub-^llcsss sad Independent* la It. Lincoi.if.Neb., Nov. I ^Tbe great in^^terest fell in the election in this state baa^seldom before been ^ quailed in Ne^^braska: not because of the high offices at^stake, for only a supreme judge and tbe^regents of tbe university are to be elec^^ted, but because it may determine^whether or not tbe Partners' alliance or^independent party Is to gain political^supremacy. In one respect tbe present^situation is without parallel in the past 3)^or 40 years, tba democratic party without^candidate-, allowing tbe ststo to go by^default. This is ail tbe more remarkable^when it is remembered that but one year^ago, tbeir candidate, Boyd was elected^governor, and was onlr deprived ot tbe^li gh office on the grounds of non-natural-^isatioa. Tbs present demoralisation of^the democratic party Is due lo the refusal^of their nominee fc r supreme judge to^mike tbe race, whereupon their csnd -^datea for regents alike were withdrawn,^and tbe field left to the republicans, in^^dependents and prohibitionists, Tharepublicans nominated A. M. Postfor supreme judge, and Charles^Marsh and H. Sbumway for regents.^Tbe la dependents nominated j. KJger-^ton for supreme judge, and A. Dallersud^and E. A. Heelley for regents. Theprohibitionists nominated Mrs.^Ada Bllienlieoder for supreme Judge, and^Rev W. M. Gorst and Mrs. Caroline M.^Woodward lor regents. Allparti- ^^ admit the contest between^the re; ub.leans and the farmers of tbv^independent psriy will be very close,^tbe prohibition vote naturally being^light* lu no other state in the^union had tbe campaign boon^so entirely, and so exclusively devote I to^the financial question. Even the tariff^has been almost lost sight of In tbe sbsrp^fight which was waged between tho n -^publicans and lnde|^endenu upon the si'^ver question. At their state convention^the ie publicans endorsed protection and^the Independents denounced II; Ihe re.^publicans endorsed tbe republican silver^coinage act, but der.ouuced unlimited si^ver coinage; tho independents demand I^the issue of legal teueler Holes by tbe g^V-^e riimcnt in si.fflcit nt value to transact tut^business of the conn try. in lieu of prosi lit^national bank notes; loans to the people^and the unlimited coinage of silver.^There is no reason to believe tbat the in^^dependents or alliance party has declined^much in tut mbership witbin the paslyi ar,^and with the democrats out of tbo field^they ought to carry tbo state,^if there be anything in Ihe confident dec^^larations of tbeir leaders. After all, tho^^ esult largely depends upon how the^democrats will vote, and while tbe inde^^pendents are loudly claiming their su -^port, the republicans ate just as emphat^^ically proclaiming that the democrats are^disgusted with tho visionary sub-treasury^scheme and will generally vote with the^republicans to checkmate tbat eras.'. DOWNIN KANSAS. Excitement la ties Mreughoie at the1^tanner.' Alltaner. Topkka,Kan , Nov. 1 ^Tbe election in^Kansas Is not fraught with the general^interest in politics the mercurial stale^usually inspires. Not only Is It an off^year election, but an election at which is^not even to be chosen a single officer.^Yet it must not bo understood that it is^without interest within tbe state. It has^been tho most hotly contested off-year^campaign ever witness *d in Kansas,^both the h ading parlies making acict-^perate effort to break the strength and^stunt tbe growth of the Fanners' alliance^and of the people's party. Particularly is^this true of the republican party's but in^some localities the democrats, as a mi^^nority party, have thought it expedient to^effect fusions with the farmer.' parlr.^With tbe exception of nine ellstrici^judges, tbe campaign is purely a local^local one, confined to the election of^county officers, but both tbo stale central^committees havo been Banding out a^score of speaker s into every nook and^corner of the state. Tbo republicans feel^it Is a question of supremo importance^tbat they should carry many of tbe^county elections, and thus say to tbe hast^and entire nation, ^ihe state of Kansas is^once more safely in republican ranks.^^Tbo democrats, naturally, ore not partic^^ularly anxious as the republicans in ihe^consummation of their wishes in this re^^spect; end probab'y for this reason tbe^democratic state central committee at a^recent meetiug gave quasi endorsement^to various local fusions with the people's^parly. This action of the committee,^however, baa been repudiated by many^lending democrats, aud several of the^inos t prominent parly organs, 'i he par^^ticular interest in this election is, there^^fore, in tbe strength that alii lie devei-^opod by the people's parth, the party that^swept tbe state a year ago and that hopes^to deliver tbe vole of tbe state for a third^parly presidential candidate iu the elec^^toral college next yeur. laMassachusetts.

Thecampaign baa been one of Ihe most^vigoroui ever fought in Massachusetts.^The democrats are confident Governor^Russell will bo rculcrtcJ, and have some^hope for the rest of tbe state ticket. The^republicans have no doubt of tbs oleotloti^of all candidates on tbeir ticket, savs the^governor, and expect a plurality of at^least 10,000 for Colonel Allen. Inview of the ^ xp^ ctcd increase In tho^total vote, it will indicate a landslide not^now exixcted if the democrats elect any^stan offlcsrs after tho governor. ^^ M r. i,-l^Baltimoiii'..
