NOVEMBER 6, 1894- ON THE EVE OF BATTLE. Windup of the Political Campaign. Voting Takes the P!ace of Talk Today. Speenlations as to the Outcome of the Balloting. a Biinau of the Situation In New York and Other States—All Parties Profess Coufldenee la the Beault. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Nov. s.—Frank H. Gonld, chairman of the Democratic state central committee, claims Budd's plurality will be 12,000. He predicts that Budd will carry the San Joaquin valley and the adjacent mountain coun ties by 5000 plurality, securing the bal ance in San Francisco. Chairman P. B. Cornwall ol the Republican state cen tral committee is confident Estee's plu rality will exceed 20,000. IN NEW EOBK. A Resume of the situation ea the Eve of Battle. Nbtt York, Nov. s.—"On tbe eve of tbe battle," "Resting on oar arms" and •imilar phrases were current at the various headquarters today. Most of these places were almost deserted, as many of the managers have gone home to vote. An exception to the rale was the case of Chairman Hackett.al tbe Re publican state headquarters in the Filth-avenue hotel, who, having paired votes with a friend in TJtica, will re main here until after election. He said today that nothing had occurred to change the estimates of Repablioac success already made public. On the other hand Chairman Thacher, at the Democratio state headquarters, be fore leaving for Albany this afternoon, gave out an estimate that Morton would not have more than 40,000 plurality above the Harlem river, and that to overcome this Hill would have a plu rality of over 60,000 in this city, at least 10,000 in Kings county and from 1000 to 1200 in Richmond conpty. Mr. Thacher admitted, however, that Erie oonntv, which the Hill men have been claiming by some 5000 votes, was at best doubtful. Confident claims are made on both sides on the local issues. The sap porters of the committee of seventy ticket predict that Tammany will be drowned by a "tidal wave," and say that for this reason all estimates of figures on the local result are worth less. At tbe headquarters of Hugh J. Orant this afternoon, tbe Tammany candidate for mayor issued a statement in which ho asserts "tomorrow the Democrats of the city of New York will give an over whelming plurality for the Btate ticket beaded by David B. Hill, and tbe ciiy ticket headed by myßelf." He continues: "I shall assume the mayoralty on January 1, pledged to give offices only to men who can and will administer them for the public, good." He adds: "Being a Demoorat, I shall use Democratic means to do whatever tbe public needs to have done," Mr. Grant declares the Loxow com mittee has "finally thrown aside the cloak of anxiety for the public good and has appeared, just as the Fassot com mittee appeared in the week before election day in 1890. as an utterly par tisan Rspublicun body." Among other statements tbe Grant headquarters made today was that the members of the Hebrew order of B'nai B'rith were working against Mr. Beek man, the Seventy's candidate for judge of the superior court, on the groom, that ho had cast a Blur on their race by say ing "The action of such people is con temptible," when a committee of the order appeared before the legislature hie t yenr to tsk that tho home for aged and infirm Hebrews in Yonkers be exempt from taxation. In predicting today the success of the anti-Tammany ticket, Campaign Man ager Jerome of tbe committee of seventy, said be believed the voters would get to the polls eariy and he was sure that in this event the "Seventy" candidates wonld win by overwhelming majorities. Great interest is taken by all politi cians and voters generally in tbe sub ject of weather tomorrow. Despite to day's storm the weather bureau predicts clear and cooler weather for election day, and it in believed the fuliillmont of this prediction will be worth thousands of votes to the Rspublicans. An important step was taken today by Superintendent Byrnes, who ordered that all the policemen on duty at tbe polla tomorrow shall be detailed to pre cincts where they do not regularly be* long. Tbis, it is believed, will prevent improper acta by the police under the influence of election officers and others with whom they are personally familiar and friendly. There was a good deal of heavy bet ting at the St. James and other uptown hotels today, and also in the stock ex change. Tho odds were 5t02 on Mor ton, as against Hill, aud about 5 to 4 in favor of Strong against Grant. Of courae there was considerable variation in the terms of the various wagers, but tiie odds noted ure about the average. There was little betting on pluralities. There was Borne lively betting at the St. James hotel last night. Joe Vendig. representing Michael F. Dwyer, wagered $5000 on Hill against $12,000 on Morton with VV. A. Mattheaon. He also placed $8000 on Hill against $30,000 on Morton, J. Weatcott of Boston taking the long end of the wager. Then Vendig offered to place $35,000 on Hill against $100,000 on Morton. Mattheaon agreed to got the $100,000 wid put it op tonight. Later W estcott bet $'.000 against $400, fur nished by J. J. Mahouey, that Morton wonld carry tbe state. Again Westcott wagered with A. L. Powers $1000 against $400 that Morton would defeat Hill. Dwyer oonld not be induced to place any money on Grant. Tbe latest actual wager on the stock exchange was $400 to $1000 on Hill. Betting men are pre dicting that the odds will be 4to 1 against Hill and 5 or 6 to 1 against Grant. Betting on the eleotion went on at a lively rate tonight in the up town ho tels. At one book-maker's club thero was plenty of money being wagered. Mr. Heinman bet $500 against $1000 on Grant straight. There were a number of bets in the olub made tbe same way, aggregating $10,000. Tbe St. James hotel was tbe chief re sort for the political betters. During the day money representing a total of $14,000 was placed in the hands of Clerk Simpson by Joe Vendig, whose money is all on the Hill side. Walbaum registered a bet of $10,000 to $4 COO that Morton would be elected. Walbaum also bet $10,000 to $4,000 with a broker named Taylor that Morton wonld be elected. PeteDe Lacy made a bet of $5,000 to $2,000 with Wilbaum that the anti-racing amendment would pass. Louis B. Jones bet $7,000 to $4,200 that Morton wonld have a plurality of 25,000. At midnight George Bowman bet $7,000 to $2,000 that Morton would win. This was the best odds yet given on Morton. GREAT EXPECTATIONS. Kepubllcaiis Count oo Controlling tho Next Congrea*. Washington, Nov. 5. —Chairman Bab cock, of tbe Republican congressional committee, baa addressed a dispatch to Vice Chairman L. D. Apslev of Hud son, Mass., claiming for the Republicans the election of 183 members of congress, fonr more than a majority of the house, and the probable election of 218 Repub licans. The dispatch is as follows: Washington, Nov. 5. Hon. L r>. Apslcy, Vice Chairman Republican congressional committee, Hudson, .Mass.: I have late lnlormation Irom all the states and cloee congressional districts, ntid without a single exception these re ports show large Republican gains, and Irom the latest advices I figure upon 183 districts that will elect Republicans be yond any question, and 35 districts in which we have more than an even chance to elect. I confidently, believe we will have a good working majority in the next bouee. J. W. Babcock, Chairman. The detailed estimate made by the chairman was: State. Sure.

He says the committee (eels confident from its advices that the Democrats will elect a majority of their members and does not see how the com plexion of tbe house nan be changed from Democratic to Republican. He cannot understand on what tbe Repub licans base their assertions of control. Elaborate Frepiratlona Mr the Distribu tion of tho Kntnrul. Chicago, Nov. s.—Extraordinary preparations have been made for the distribution of election retnrna in Chi cago and elsewhere in the west. The work in many respects will be on a scale never betore attempted, and it is to be accomplished, in part at least, by meth ods entirely novel. The Western Union and Postal telegraph companies will supply bulletins to tbeir customers, clubs, theaters and other resorts at the asual iates, covering the country more rapidiy und thoroughly, it is said, ac cording to the greatly increased number of men employed, than on any previous similar occasion. The most unique feature of the work probably will be in the methods to be utilized by the Long Distance telephone company, which, in connection with tba Chicago Telephone company, will make an interesting new departure lyy furnishing free to all who have telephones an extensive series of bulletins. These bulletins will be talked direct by long-distance telephone from Now York to Chicago and will then be distributed throughout the local tele phone systems to offices and residences almost withont number. Bllssonrl Militia Not Ordered Oat on Ac count of the A. P. A. Kansas City, Nov. 5. —There is abso lutely no truth in the report sent from here by Bpocial correspondents that Governor Stone Ims ordered out the Third regiment, N. G. M., to report for active duty at the armory, in nnticipa tion of a riot between the A. P. A. and the regular political organizations at to morrow's election. The only possible basis tor the story is that Colonel Simonde of tbe Third regi ment ordered Company Don duty to night and Company A tomorrow morns ing lor tbe purpose of guarding the arm ory. The order was made on the oolonel'd own responsibility. Under the law, if militia aro placed in active service it must be on tbe written call of tbe mayor and sheriff, who must liret exhaust all their means to preserve the peace. Several Congressional Districts Closely Contented. Cincinnati, Nov. 5. —The election of Ohio is only for local and state officers in addition to congressmen. The fight has been limited to close districts fcr congressmen. The present Ohio delega tion in congress consists of 11 Demo crats and 10 Republicans. Sorg, in the Third, Ritchie in the Ninth, Outhwaite in the Twelfth, Johnson in the twentieth and others are conaiderad doubtful fo re election. THE OUTLOOK IN NEBRASKA. A Dfemocratlc-PopuTUt Victory OonG rtently I'xp'Ctwd. Omaha, Not. 5. —The campaign which clones tonight is admitted to be the bit terest affair of the kind in the history of Nebraska, In all parts oi the state enthusiastic rallies have been held. The elements of uncertainty are more numerous in the contest tomorrow than Nebraska has ever known. Tbe fusion Democratic-Populists claim the election of their state ticket by 15.000, and tbe Republicans claim success for their state ticket by 10,000. v The legislature will probably bo close between the iuaiouiata on one side and THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH. ELECTION NEWS. ELECTION CANARD. THE ELECTION IN OHIO. TEX PAGES. the Repnblicans on the other. II the latter win, John M. Thurston will prob ably be the next United States senator, and if tbe former, Congressman Bryan will be the man. It is donbtiul whether the result on any office will bo known before Wednesday night; owing to the distance from tele graph stations of a number oi the coun ties, the returns will have to be carried on horseback; for many miles. STATE OF WASHINGTON. The Repablloaua Will Have Things I li. lr Own Way. Seattle, Nov. 5. — Washington wilj tomorrow elect two congressmen at large and two justices of the supreme court and vote on an important consti tutional amendment relative to the in vestment of state funds. Half the state nenators, 17, and al the members of tbe bouse, 92, are to bo elected. The Re publicans will win by at least 5.000. Most of thn estimates go much higher. In every Republican county there is a fusion between tho Democrats and Pop ulists on legislative ticket, and from the reports received up to tonight the Post-Intelligencer claims the legislature by a small majority. Tbe Republican state committee esti mates that the Republican congressional and supreme judge candidates will be elected by 13.01)0 plurality, and that the legislature will be Republican on joint ballot by 15 to 20. Chairman Drum of the Democratic state central committee says the Demo crats have a good ohtuice of electing one congressman, but concedes the state to the Republicans by 1000 to 2000 plural ity, providing the Populists keep in tbe middle of the road. He thinks the Democrats, with six hold overs, will have 26 members of tbe legislature and tbe Populists 17 to 23, leaving it Repub lican on joint ballot at least 10 majority. He thinks the vole polled in the state will be 4000 to OJOO less than two years ago, when it was b'B,ooo. IN MINNESOTA. Three Parties Claim Tli-y Will Win at th« Polls. St. Paul, Nov. 5. —Minnesota will to morrow elect a lull state, congressional and legislative ticket, and tbe leading parties aro making great claims. The Republican committee claim Governor Nelaou will be re-elected and predict a solid congressional delegation by a good majority. The Democrats claim that Becker will be elected by 501)0 or moie; that part of the state will follow him, and that at least two congressmen will be Demo crats. Tho Populists simply claim the elec tion of Owner for governor without giv ing figures, expressing confidence in the re-eleclion of Congressman Bcwen and asseit ihoy will hold the balauco of power in the legislature.

In the Third there is a bard tight, with thi chances about even, Tbe chances foi Harvey, Democrat, in the Fourth, are considered good.

Ouly state cffkea are to be rilled and the Democrat* for these will be selected by probata! pluralities of 15,000 to 20.000. Twt years ago the Democrats bad a plural ity of 30,000, but since then the Fopu« lists have greatly increased their strength, and the new blood hns been hugely drawn from the Democratir party, which of course, will diminish the Democratic plurality. The Repub lican claim they will gain two and pos sibly four congressmen. The Uorno* crnts assert there will be no change in the stale delegation, but admit that the Democratic majorities will be somewhat reduced in the lumber region of the Fourteenth and the mining section o. the Fifteenth.
