OTHER NEWS OVER WIRES Washington, D. C, November 2. . Voters, to-morrow, for president and Vice-president, will be afforded tbe un ' precedented opportunity of taking their oboioe from no less than eight uoneis Two of these, the Cbioago demooratio and the St. Louis silver, have the same nominees, but, inasmuch as the nomi nations were made by separate national conventions, duly called, and in some states tbe state legislation controls tbe method of printing tbe tickets for presl dential electors, it has been found nec esa ary to distinctly designate tbe tieket ol every and eaou convention.

ItWIIIcoDown In History atone of the Moit Remarkable on Record. Chicago, Illinois, November 2. Tbe political campaign that is closing, t to-aay, win go aown into History as one of the moBt remarkable that has ever been wag3d, not merely, in this country but in tbe world at large. It has been a year unprecedented for its splits, its bolts and its secessions. . In tbe olden times, tbe superstitions would nave ascribed these conditions to a dig turbance of the planetary system, re fleeting upon the inhabitants of v the North American continent, or as por tending some approaching disaster which was making itself felt, in ad Tanoe, by tbe awakening and - stirring of the passions and antagonisms - of however, it is oertain at " least that nothing like the disruption of parties in tbe present year bas ever been seen and probably will never be seen again'. The meeK, mild-mannered prohibi tionists, wnose one watchword is war npon tbe saloon, and who npon all other issues endeavor to be at peace with all mankind, led the way in their national convention at Pittsburg, in May, when horns werellocked on the silver question and tbe curse of rum was .temporarily forgotten in tbe battle for and against the white metal. The result was a bolt, and for tbe first time sinoe its organisation tne ooia water army was split asunder. une montn later, came the memor able republican convention in St. Louis, and tbe sppotacular but nevertheless touching and emotional withrawal from Its deliberations of the silver cohorts led by the venerable Senator Henry M Teller. . .Next la order was the Coliseum con. vention in Chicago, and which although not productive of a bolt on the spot, as in tbe case of the prohibitionists and republicans, paved tbe way for the creation of a formidable "oave of Ab dullah1' in tbe demooratio party, out of which came tbe Indianapolis conven tion and second democratic ticket. . .Last, out not least, was tbe popu ist convention at tbe Mound City, where tbe middle-of-the-roadites balked at tbe tail end of tbe Coliseum ticket, and Insisted, as a condition precedent to fusion, upon the nomination of the fiery Tom Watson, of Georgia, as Mr. Bryan's running mate. The result bas been to keep tbe democratic-popul st fusion at sixes and sevens throughout the campaign. The Bryanites have ttood by Sewall and the middle-of-the-road populists by Watson, and to-morrow tbe fusion voters, while a unit on the Nebraska candidate, wii divide their suffrages between tbe Georgia candidate and tbe Maine shipbuilder. As for the bolts and splits in state conventions and parties, they bave been too numeroui to recount. Cer tain it is, that tbe white metal bas proven the mo9t disturbing element that tbe country Las known with the solitary exception of the civil war. It bas divided bouses between themselves, arrayed fathers and sods, husbands and wives, friends and neighbors and old. time political bed-fellows on opposite idei; but to-morrow the issue Is sub mitted to tbe adjudication of the polls The minorltv will accept the result with grace and dignity, and on Wed nesday Old Glory will egain float triuniDhant with the legend: "Uod reierns. and the trovernmunt at Wash. lngton still lives." IN HIS OWN STATE. Mr. Bryaa Now Making Speeches on the Road Home. Aurora. Neb.. November 2. Sever al hundred people were in waiting in the crisp morning air at the Burlington station at Lincoln, to-day, to see can didate Brvan off. and they cheered beartilv when Mr. and Mrs. Bryan witb their little daughter, Grace, who makes tbe trio witb them, appeared and tbev Bent up a big shout as the train moved off. At the first stopping place, Mr. Bryan was reminded that the opponents of tbe Cbioago ticket in bis own state were very active. Ibis was at bewara, which was reached at 7 :35 o'olock Gold badges were displayed there la large numbers, but Mr. Bryan was cot interrupted in a fifteen-minute speech Republicans bad also organized i counter display at York. Yellow rib bons were very noticeable among tbe orowd of 2.000, but they did not nnm ber more than one-sixth of the audi ence. Cheering was very hearty when Mr. Bryan ascended the piatiorm which had been erected for speaking purposes, and it was intermingled witb some shouts for McKinley. Bryan said some of the people in Nebraska seemed to be much afraid that it would become popular to bave a president from the west. lie could not under. stand, be said, bow the farmer could be in favor of the gold standard, and wont on to tell his reasons for making the statement, substantially as in pre. vious speeches. It was evident that tbe republican state committee had been aotive at Aurora in the distribution of yellow ribbons. At Seward and Xork, mo. Kinley badges were worn and at all the three places, a conpie tnousana people beard Bryan. Al Aurora, there was considerable cheering for McKinley, interjected with tbe enthusiasm of tbe Bryanites. " The extreme western point on the Ions' campaign tour was reaobed by Mr. Brvan at Grand Island, whenoe he turned eastward again and returned to Aurora, on his way to Hastings. Grand Island furnished the largest orowd Of tbe day. The audienoe of 4,000 were plainly in sympathy with the democratic onndidate. TO MORROW'S WEATHER.

The mountain states are also dry, but the western slope of the Mississip pi valley bas been thoroughly soaked in the last four days, even Kansas and Nebraska teaming so heavy that another general shower would make the roads almost impassable.
