VOL. 80 BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1903. NO. 1*3. BOTH SIDES IN NEW YORK AKE CLAMING A VICTOKY Tammany People Are Already Making Arrangements for Celebration GAMBLERS LAYINC ODDS Of 10 TO 8 ON M'CLEILAN While Conceding Nothing, Fueionists Only Claim 30,000 Majority, and It Is Said They Really Do Not Look for Over 15,000. ! New York, November 2.—With every in dication ot a close struggle tomorrow the eve' of battle finds the leaders of fusion and Tammany loud in their predictions of overwhelming victory. So confident is Charles F. Murphy in his estimate of 100,000 for plurality for Mc Clellan, based on the returns of all his district leaders, that tonight he issued orders to go ahead with the preparations for a rousing celebration of the victory. The estimate of John J. Delaney, Me Clellan's personal campaign manager, places the plurality at 85,000, being 73,000 In Manhattan and the Bronx, 5000 in Brooklyn, 5500 in Queens and 1800 in Rich mond. Fusionists Claim 30,000. While conceding nothing, the fusionist loaders claim no more than 30,000 plural ity for Low, although it Is said that their closest estimates point to a majority nf about half that figure. The fusionists pin their faith In victory on their ability to carry Brooklyn by at least 25,000, which with estimated pluralities of 3000 in the Bronx and 2000 in Richmond and a drawn battle in Queens, will suffice to handsome ly offset a conceded plurality of 12,000 in Manhattan. Not to lag behind the other combatants In confidence, William S. Devery announ ces that he expects to poll not less than 45 per cent of the total registered vote. Considerable interest attaches to the size of the vote that Devery will control, and it may have a serious Influence on the re sult. Colonization Scheme Worked. The usual reports on "colonization on H large scale, -re still Indust. ” ; V cl: ■>♦ iated, and the campaign of State Superin tendent Morgan to check Illegal voting which was concluded today by the sum moning of several hundred witnesses to station houses to testify in regard to the cases of Illegal registration, has been the most complete inquisition of the kind ever undertaken in the city. No less than 30,000 suspicious cases have been Investigated out of a total registration of 628,808 and it is probable that many arrests will be made tomorrow when every polling place will be under the close scrutiny of the su perintendent's deputies, who will have the assistance of the strongest force of watch ers ever placed at the polls organized by the citizen's union. With these precau tions. it is predicted that illegal voting will be reduced to a minimum. An interesting minor feature of the sit uation was the declaration today by Dep uty Attorney General F. C. Crain, that the destruction of the houses of 500 voters In the fire at Coney Island yesterday be ing "an act of God" could not be used as a pretext for depriving them of the right to vote. Some of the Broadway hotels tonight presented the most animated appearance that they have given so far during the campaign as betting men were about in crowds offercing all sortB of wagers for and against the two candidates for the mayoralty. The prevailing odds were 10 to 8 on McClellan. HEAVY VOTE EXPECTED. Democrats Have Worked Hard In the Massachusetts Campaign. Boston. November 2.—With good weath er tomorrow, the party managers all agree that there will be a heavy vote cast in Massachusetts, not only for gov ernor but for the entire state ticket. Not for many years have the demo crats worked so hard and their efforts have so thoroughly stirred up their op ponents that the state has been better canvassed than for ten years. Every ef fort will be made tomorrow to get out the largest possible vote, and the sys tematic work in that direction has been one of the hardest tasks that the com mittees have undertaken. Col. Ed F. McSweeny, the campaign manager of William A. Gaston, leader of the democratic ticket, said today: “We are perfectly satisfied. The voters will tell our story.” Maj. Thomas Talbot, chairman of the republican state committee, said: “Issues have passed away but the people of this state can be depended on tomorrow to recognize honesty and fidelity such as Governor Bates has shown.” The last day of the campaign was spent by the chairmen of the respective parties in sending out instructions to the work ers in the state. Chairman Lindsay of the republican committee insists that with an average vote, the ticket will win by 35.000. Chairman Weber of the fusion commit tee, said: “We are jubilant over the prospects for the re-election of Chief Jus tice Sullivan.” Rhode Island Campaign Lively. Providence, R. I., November 2.—The last rally of the campaign was held by democrats in this city tonight, and it ends the liveliest campaign since 1892. The state political situation was prac tically unchanged. The democratic lead ers expect to win by about 200ft plurality, which is a loss of 5000 from last year's victory, while republicans express their belief that Colonel Colt will win by from 6000 to 7000 votes. Both parties agree that the state senate undoubtedly will be re publican. Mother Kill* Her Child. Valdosta, Ga.,' November 2. — Mrs. Thomas Zant, while amusing her year old child last Saturday, playfully point ed a parlor rifle at it, saving, "Look out I’ll shoot baby." instantly there was an explosion and the child screamed In pain. It lingered till today, when it tiled. Mrs. Zant denounces herself as a murderess, tat there Is no doubt that the 'shooting was an accident. , ESTIMATES SHOW THE TWOEXTREMES Republicans Are Confident of Victory in Ohio MUNICIPAL CODE AN ISSUE It Is Claimed That Johnson Will Be Defeated for Governor By a Larger Majority Than His Repre sentative Last Year. Columbus. O., November 2.—On the eve of the election, the estimates of the two , parties continue to represent the two ex tremes. The democrats give no figures on the state ticket and claim only a bare major ity In the legislature, wnlle the republi cans claim a larger plurality with a sin gle exception than ever before on the state ticket, and almost twice as large a ma jority in the legislature as ever before. One of the leading issues in this campaign has been over the municipal code that was enacted by the republicans in the last legislature. Under this new munic ipal code, the wards and precincts in all places of five thousand population and over, were changed this year so that the vote tomorrow night cannot be compared With that of any previous state election, except on such returns as come from the rural districts and towns of less than 6000 population. The vote will be compared with that of last year when the republicans carried the state by over 9000 plurality. At that time the Rev. H. S. Bigelow of Cincinnati, rec ognized as the representative of the John son element in his party, was defeated by Secretary of State Uouls C. Laylin. The republican plurality was then great er than at any other time in the history of the state with the exception of three years ago, when the conditions were not at all normal. The republicans claim that Johnson himself will be defeated for gov ernor by a larger plurality than was his representalve last year, and they have even gone so far as to say anything less than a plurality of 100,000, under ex isting conditions, would not be considered a republican victory. On all of these calculations, republicans have been ex pecting the total to be no less than 900, 000. It has bean raining jll da In "lost of the state and rain is predicted for Ohio again tomorrow. The republicans have expected gains from the rural districts and the Inclement weather may make the rural vote light. RESULT CERTAIN. Pennsylvania Will Probably Go Repub lican as Usual. Philadlphia, November 2.—The general i opinion as expressed by the republican leaders is that Pennsylvania will tomor row give its usual off-year majority for the republican candidate. The democratic state chairman and other state leaders de cline to give figures, contenting them selves with the prediction that a full democratic vote will be cast. The .campaign has been a quiet one throughout, there having been fewer mass meetings and political gatherings than in many years. United States Senator Pen rose, chairman of the state committee, said today: “The entire ticket will he elected by a majority of not less than 150,000, and the figures may reach 175.000.” City Chairman Donnely, of the regular democrats, when asked for his opinion ■ on the outlook, merely said: “The regular democratic ticket should poll at least 40,000 votes in Philadelphia tomorrow.” CANDIDATES WORK HARD. Warfield and Williams Close Their La bors at a Late Hour. Baltimore. November 2.—Though the close of the state campaign was an nounceon Saturad night, the two candi dates for governor did not relax their active labor until a late hour tonight. Edwin Warfield, the democratic nominee, spent the entire day in Howard county, his home county, making brief addresses to his former neighbors. Stevenson A. Williams, the republican candidate, reach ed Baltimore tonight where he will con fer with his party leaders. Dispatches received from the various counties show that the campaign workers did not relax their efforts until tonight. At the respective headquarters the day was spent by the party leaders sending out final instructions to ward, precinct and county executives, among whom there was a distribution of the customary “campaign expenses” to be used tomor row. CLOSE CONTEST EXPECTED. Municipal Battle at San Francisco Will Be Lively. San Francisco, November 2.—On the eve of election In this city, it Is generally conceded that the contest for mayor be tween bane, democrat, Crocker, republi can and Schmitz, union labor, will be close. There Is a feeling, however, among politicians, that the democrats and re publicans will unite to a large extent on one candidate, Schmitz. the present mayor who stands a good chance of re election, being opposed by both In the de feat of the labor orders. Heavy Vote in Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City, November 2.—Plur alities ranging from 1000 to 1500 are claimed by both the republican and demo cratic tickets In tomorrow's municipal election. On account of the bitterness which has marked the campaign, an ex ceptionally heavy vote is looked for. Republican Victory in Iowa. Des Moines, Iowa, November 2.—Rain is indicated over Iowa tonight and tomor row. All the state headquarters are closed, so no revision of Saturday's claims has been made. Non-partisan ob servers predict a republican plurality of ♦fl.ftftft to 5ft,non. Republican Chairman Spence gives no figures, and democratic Chairman Jackson admits a republican plurality of 20,000. HOPES ME HIGH IH OLDKENTUCIlIf Campaign Managers Have Not Changed Estimates REPUBLICANS CONFIDENT Chairman Newman Predicts the Elec tion of Col. Belknap for Governor and Entire Republican Ticket. No Weapons Allowed. Loisville, November 2.—Campaign man agers have not changed their estimates nounced Saturday night, the two candi of tomorrow’s ballotting in Kentucky. The democrats claim the state for Beckham by a majority of 20,000. and to this they add 6000 which they expect the city of Louis ville and Jefferson county to give their ticket. Chairman J. H. Newman, of the republican state campaign committee, says: “We are confident of the election of Col. Belknap and the entire republican ticket. We have received careful statements from all the counties, and without entering in to details, from the estimates received, we place the majority of our ticket in round numbers at 12,000.” The socialist and the socialist-labor par ties have full tickets in the field, but they cut absolutely no figure. Mayor Granger of Louisville in a com munication to the board of safety to night urged the strict enforcement by the police department of the law prohib iting the carrying of concealed deadly weapons. Those who go to the polls with con cealed weapons tomorrow are liable to arrest. Chief of Police Gunther has issued the customary orders to his men in regard to their duties at the polls tomorrow. They are expected to obey the statutes strictly. Little betting is being done. Those confident of democratic victory are offering two to one with few takers. The eleventh district, which in all pre vious elections has been last to be heard from, is a tier of counties 150 miles long in the eastern part of the state. The country is mountainous and means of communication are scarce. The district is strongly republican. CHAIRMEN BUSY. Working Hard in Colorado to Bring Out Full Vote. Denver, November 2.~The chairmen of the political parties have been doing all In their power today to bring out the full strength In tomorrow's election of a Judge of the state supreme court. Republican Chairman Fairley says Judge Campbell will be re-elected by 8000 to 10,000 plurality, if there Is no repeating. Milton Smith, chairman of the demo cratic state committee, said: "Wilson's plurality in Denver will be from oooo to 10,0000. We expect to carry the rest of the state by a small plural ity.” Populist Chairman A. B. Gray ventured the opinion that there is a strong prob ability of the elections of Owers. VERY LITTLE DOING. Small Vote Will Probably Be Polled In Mississippi. Jackson, Miss., November 2. — The weather forecast for Mississippi tomor row is for fair weather, but this will not serve to get out much of the vote fh the election. The democratic ticket head ed by J. K. Vardaman has no opposition, and not more than a third of the full vote will be polled. No campaign speech es have been made since the primary, August 1. The only interest that attaches to the election is the race for Supreme court clerk. In which there are five candidates. SEC. MOODY TALKS ABOUT THE NAVY DENIES THAT FINE SCORES AT TARGET PRACTICE WERE MADE BY DESERTERS FROM THE BRIT ISH NAVY. Cambridge. Mass., November 2 —William H. Moody, secretary of the navy, deliver ed an address this evening before the Harvard Political club on the "Adminis tration of a Navy.” in the course of his remarks, which out lined In a general way the functions of the navy and the methods of maintenance and admiistratlon, Mr. Moody referred to the administration. Mr. Moody referred to the effect that the marksmen of the navy of the United States were deserters from the British navy, tempted to the American service by the high pay oflered. After stating that this allegation was entirely without foundation, Mr. Moody said: ”1 personally have not much faith in the accuracy of computations based upon the I number of hits discoverable by an Inspec tion of ships sunk or burned In the battles | of Manila bay or Santiago. Speaking of the high scores made by the I gunners In recent practice tests, Secretary Moody said: “These results have been accomplished by American citizens. All of our officers are. of course. Americans, and of the 28,800 enlisted men, 79.8 per cent are native born; 1.9 per cent are nautralized citizens and 9.3 per cent are aliens. We may have deserters from other navies In our ranks. I know of none, however, and If I learned of one I would instantly discharge him.” Capps Begins Work. Washington. November 2.—Admiral Washington L. Capps, the newly ap pointed chief constructor of the navy, who succeeds Rear Admiral Bowles, assumed the duties of his new office today. CRIMSON AND WHITE TRAIL IN II BIST Sewanee Tigers Crush Alabam ians 23 to 0, Bui Find Ibe Task Difficult BOYS FROM TUSCALOOSA WERE GAME TO THE CORE With Defeat Staring Them in the Face They Kept Plugging Away and In Second Half Played Moun taineers to a Standstill. Outweighed and outclassed, but full of determination and grit Alabama made a stubborn fight against Sewanee yester day only to be defeated by a score of 113 to 0. While the score 3eews overwhelmingly one-sided, and the Mountaineers deserve the victory they so well earned, It give* no Indication of the plucky fight made by the Crimson and White, who went into the game with defeat staring them In the face. Again and again they plunged into the purple line for gains of from three to eight yards only to approach the fatal goal and lose the ball on fumbles. Neither repulses nor hard luck seemed to have any effect on the Alabamians, as they gamely stuck to their posts and battled the harder to keep their weightier con querers off. In the last half they fought the Tennesseans to a standstill, and Se wanee failed to score until the last three minutes of play, when Philips, the big guard was nurled across the line for the fourth and last touchdown. Sewar«e Played Magnificent Game. gew‘nee played a magnificen t game from start to finish and the work of the back1 was superb. Conch Whitney had give11 his team a beautiful system .of ln teif!renee, -d wit!' V > fleet cndsA and backs In Liont f a <*nn»i gains j were made around th« Alabama ends wltH com parative ease. Among the swilt-footed Mountaineers who carried off th e honors were Colmore, Shaffer, Klrby-f>mith And Stewait. Wheeler and Jones were much superloi to their opponents as end rushes, and then work preveAted any gains around the fijrqlce bye, and at the same time blocked the Alabamians on almost every attempt at long end runs. Sewanee's work was clean and clear cut. and like perfect machinery the men forced their way through the line of red Jerseys t.* victory. The Tennesseans found It difficult to gain on bucks as the Alabama line was at times as solid as a wall, hut the^ changed tactics and sent runners around the ends for ten, twenty and thirty-yard gains. Philips Could Always Gain. The only man who could successfully break through the line was Philips, the giant guard, and he was always caUed upon when the ball was in one of the greatest guards the south has ever known and nothing short of a stone wall could stop him. Game In Detail. On the kickoff the hall went sailing to Alabama's ten-yard line, but was returned twenty yeards. Alabama run a tandem play over the tackle for six and the Alabama rooters set up a mighty r ■ • A buck sent the hall five yards further and the Alabamians began to feel confi dent The next buck failed hut McMahon plunged through for six yards and there was great rejoicing in the bleachers. This kept up for three minutes and the ball was gradually approaching Sewanee s goal when the Tennesseeans took a brace and held Alabama on downs. Wytatt was forced to punt and kicked the hall twenty yards, Sewanee taking possession. By successive gains Sewanee sent Shaffer across the line for a touchdown and Col more kicked goal. Score: Sewanee. 6; Al abama. 0. . _ Soon after seesawing acrosB the field on the next kickoff, Colmore was given the hall and he flitted around right end for ten yards. It was apparent to the spec tators by this time that Alabama's ends and extra men were weak on defense and the hope o fthe Alabama rooters began to sink. Colmore again took the hall on a tandem pjay and was shoved around right end for four yards. Shaffer Makes Beautiful Run. Shaffer then broke the hearts of nearly a thousand Alabamians by dashing around end for twenty-eight yards. Col more made four yards on a tandem and a trick play gained 10 through center. Klrby-Smith like a flash plunged through the Crimson and white line for five yards and a touchdown, the second score of the game. Colmore kicked the goal. Score: Sewanee. 12, Alabama, 0. On the kickoff the hall went to Ala bama's 25-yard line but was brought back ten. Every effort of Alabama to gain was futile and Wyatt was forced to punt. Shaffer caught the hall and rtune back like a race horse, Burks making a beau tiful tackle. At this time Fortune was put out of the game fur slugging and Grenade took his place. Sewanee failed to gain and kicked the hall hack towards Alabama's goal. Ala bama gain failed to make good with the pigskin and kicked It back. At this juncture Burks went in as full bark. McMahon going out of the game and Hall going to left half back. On the first down Stewart fumbled but regained the hall and made two yards. Sewanee then had things her own way until the end of the half and by pretty Interference gradually sent the ball down the field and just before the whistle sounded Philips went crashing across the line for a touchdown. Colmore again kicked goal. Score: Sewanee 18; Ala bama 0. Second Half. In the second half Alabama showed re markable staying ability and exhibited more pluck than any team turned out of the state University for the last ten years. Time after time they met repulses WORKED INTO A FRENZY MAN KILLS HIS BROTHERS . Enraged Virginian Then Attempts to Shoot His Sister and Sis ter-in-Law, and Holds a Posse at Bay for Nine Hours Before Being Captured—Result of a Quarrel. nOTTSVILLE, VA.. November 2.— Worked into a frenzy as a result of an altercation with one of his brothers, Benjamin Franklin Weissinger, living on a farm several miles from this city, this afternoon shot and killed his two brothers, attempted to kill his sister and a sister-in-law, and held a large posse of policemen at bay for nine hours before he was captured. The tragedy oc curred on the farm of the father of the man. The dead men are Louis Weissinger, , aged 22, single, and Frederick, aged 25, who leaves a widow. The fatricide is 45 years old. Benjamin and Louis had a quarrel early in the afternoon over the cleaning of a horse. During the altercation Benjamin fired four shots at Frederick without any taking effect. Frederick fled to the attic of the farm house and was followed into the house by the enraged brother. The latter Becured a Winchester rifle, and as he was leaving the house he saw his brother Louis again at the kitchen door. Without a word of warning Benjamin fired at Louis, the bullet striking him in the side. The victim fell unconscious and died in half an hour without uttering a word. Weissinger then walked down a path and caught a glimpse of Frederick, who was looking out of the attic window. Ben jamin quickly raised his rifle and fired. The bullet entered Frederick’s cheek and penetrated the brain. He fell dead across the window sill. His wife who had gone to the attic with him. attempted to drag the body into the room. She succeeded in this, but not before Benjamin had fired several shots at her, all without ef fect. Benjamin’s attention was then at tracted to his sister Mary, who had come out of the house to persuade him from doing any more shooting. She persisted so strongly that he turned his rifle upon her and fired twice, but his aim again was bad. The young woman escaped Into the house. Having realized what he had done, and fearing arrest. Benjamin decided to barri cade himself in the barn. He went into the house, secured a shot gun, several re volvers and ammunition and then took up his position in the barn. When Sheriff Smith appeared on the scene a ruse was planned to capture the man. A parley was held with the murder er and he agreed to let the two farm hands bring him his supper. The men were instructed to watch their opportu nity and seize him by the arms and shout, which would be the signal for the deputies to rush in. This they did and a terrible struggle took place. The murderer Is a powerful man. but the force of numbers was too great for him and he was tied hand and foot before he could further use his weapons. Weissenger is believed to be insane. His mind is said to have been failing for I some time. He had nothing to say regard ing the tragedy except that he thought he was “bewitched.” NEGROES AND WHITE MEN LYNCH BLACK MURDERER ! Shreveport, November 2.—Joseph Crad dock. a negro, was lynched by an Infuri ated mob composed chiefly of blacks, at Taylortown, in Bossier parish, about sev enteen miles from Shreveport last, night. Craddock’s crime was a particularly atrocious one. He secured an axo and ap proaching the home of Wesley Chamber, a negro cotton picker, called to him to come out. The negro responded and | Craddock whispered something in his ear. As the negro turned to go In the house, ! Craddock split his head with an axe. When Chambers fell on the ground Crad dock frightfully mutilated the body with his weapon. He then walked across the open ground about the Chambers cabin and observing Dana Washington, a negro, crept upon him and struck him on the head with the i sharp edge of the Instrument. Not satls tled with this crime, Craddock went to the door of Chambers’ cabin and called Mer cer, the brother of Wesley Chambers. Suspecting nothing. Chambers came to the door and was immediately beaten down with the axe and frighfully maim ed. Mercer Chambers died this afternoon and Dana Washington cannot live. Artec leaving the house Craddock walked to Taylortown and mingled with the negroes there. He was perfectly un concerned when captured, and admitted the killing of the three men, saying he did it just for "fun." Craddock was CRUght by a small posse of white men, but a crowd of 300, com posed largely of negroes, took possession of the murderer. He was at once hanged to a tree and burned beneath it after be ing pronounced dead. The men killed were Inoffensive, hard working negroes. PRESIDENT RECEIVES NEGROES AT LUNCHEON i Washington, November 2.—(Special.)— Right on the eve of the election, within a few hours before the polls open in Maryland and Kentucky, where the negro issue Is one of the most Important before the people, several negroes were dined at the White House. This afternoon the President decided to give a reception to the enlisted men of the Mayflower and Sytpn, government vessels upon which he has been cruising around during the summer. In the crews are several negro seamen, but they stood in the White House on an equal with the whites and enjoyed the occasion immense- | ly. The seamen were first presented to the President and Mrs. Roosevelt in the east parlor and were then led Into the state dining room, where lunch was served. At the White House, tonight no state ment could be obtained about the affair. While the presence of the negro sea men was not confirmed or denied, the only answer was to the efTect that it had not been noticed whether they were pres ent. The declination to admit the presence of the negro seaman Is taken to mean that ! the President found out that he had made another blunder on the negro problem, and Is trying: to conceal It until tomorrow passes over.

You say that if he wishes privately to view the body of his sister today (Monday), you will exclude the public from the lying-in-state. as his doing so was ‘impossible at Carnegie Hall. After the Inconsiderate and indifferent way in which General Ballington Booth was treated by you at the Carnegie Mu sic hall, It would not be w'ise for him to subject himself to further misunderstand ing. During the three-quarters of an hour he waited there, It would have been quite possible for you to accede to his. as also Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Booth's re quest for a family gathering. His re quest was one perfectly natural to any brother—simply to pray with the mem bers of the family for a brief time around the coffin. Ho came purely from i o spirit of sympathy and unofficially, as al so did Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Booth. ‘It was furthest from their thoughts to allude to any Ulffnrence between the movements of governments and felt that when the public was being nllpwcd Uj tktpate :n the- obsequies .>? their stater, they as members of the family had some rights. He would never have gone near the Carnegie music hall, had he not been assured over the wire by your representa tive that his requests would be respected. General Ballington Booth was told in hearing of Mrs. Booth that his arrange ments were conceded to in all but that one point, and he immediately waived that wish In deference to the request of Miss Eva Booth and Commander Booth Tuck er. “In your letter of today you overlook the express purpose of Gen. Ballington Booth's and Mr. Herbert Booth's visit to the Carnegie Music hall. It was for a family gathering around the body and hot merely t-» view? the reraadits. “We regret this deplorable exhibition of Salvation Army spirit and we cannot advise Gen.
