Publishers Herald: In your ad vertising columns appears the adver tisement of the National Guar antee Loan and Trust company, where in my name appears as pres dent of the El Paso Branch. I presume my elec tion to this position was owing to a belief entertained by the stockholders in this city that there was a kind of relation existing between the business of buiiding and loan and that of life insurance and tha, as I was recognized as somewhat of an authority on life in surance. I ought to be posted on build ing and loan. Whether this be true or not, I feel that my duty to the persons who elected me demand that I should not allow my name to be used in an advertisement designed to forward the inter sts of this institution after it has ceased to possess mv confidence. My experience with the National Guaran tee Loan and Trust company has not satisfied mo that it is worthy of the support of El Paso people. You will therefore please remove my name frcm among those appearing in its advertisement in your paper, S, H. Newman, Mutual Lifo. NEW YORK CONTEST. Indication Points to a Tam many Victory. RETURNS ONLY MEAGER, Croker Tt-learrapbed ex-Governor Stone, of Wisconsin, that Tam many ' Has a Cinch" Indications Point That Way. New York, November 2. The most tremendous municipal battle on record is being foutrf t out t th polls today. The prize is the mayoralty of Greater New York, as it becomes constituted on New Ytar's day, . when the great area embraced in the corporation will not only be the second city in the worm, but toe largest municipality on earth practically governed by one man. The four candidates are ex-Secretary Benjamin F. Tracy, republican; Judge K. a. Van Wyck, Tammany ; Seth Low, Citizens' Union, and Henry Gtorge, Jr., Unit d Democracy. The mayor to be elected today will serve for four years at a salary of $15,000 a year, and to cay nothing of an army of minor employees, he will have the appoint ment or forty important department heads and chiefs, whose terms of office wll run from four to six years, and the aggregate of whose salaries will be a quarter of a million dollars annual ly There are but six governors in the country who rule a greater number of people than the sutc. ssful candidate of today thoe of New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. The issues of the campaign have been so wide ly ventilated that the election may be regarded as one of national interest.. Former Secretary Tracy and Mr. Low practically represent the same Republican principles and doc trines, the actual difference between them beirg that Mr. Tracy is the creature of what is known as the Piatt machine, wbile Mr. Low owes his candidacy to voters of all parties who believe that municipal government should be divorced from party politics. The total registration has ben within a fraction of 570.000, or within 7,000 of the presidential vote of last yeir. The most conservative p-edict:o '3 to day are that Judge Van Wyok will head the pill with a plurality of 1d,- 000 to 25,000 over Sslh Low, who, it is feared, will baat General Tracy by about 10,000, the latter beating Henry George, Jr., by 40,000 or more. The Prohibitionists and Socialists cave tickets in the field, while the redoubt able Mayor Gleasun, of Ljntr Inland City, is also a.i independent candidate, but these tickets combined will poll but a handful of votes as compared with the fou- leading candidates. If a union of the forces of Tracy and Low could have been effected the Re publicans would have swept the terri tory, but as it is, impartial observers and the betting is the same way figure out Tammany Hall a safe win ner, with plenty to spare, The weather predictions for the en tire day is for a steady down pour of rain with a falling temperature. Last night a heavy rain prevented the out door meetings and kept thousands away from meetings, but the rain demon strated the fact that host of Henry George men are in dead earnest in this contest. The George meetings were enormously attended. A fog combined with the rain and made the work early voters disagreeable, bu. tbe election excitement has become to intense that citizens would flock to the polls if obliged to swim. An enormous vote was cast in tbe city durirg the early hours. At 9:30 o'clock it was estimat ed that 40 per cent of the total vote h.d been cast in Greater New York. New York, November 2. At two o'clock Croker at Tammany Hall wired Ex-Governor Stone, of Missouri: "We h-ive a cinch." Drnmmers Divcuss Scalping Law. Chicago, 111., November 2.

THE ELECTION. States that Voted Today For State Officers. IS ONLY A FORECAST. The Eyes of the Country are Centered On the Election in Ohio A Re pub Mean Majority is Assured There. Washington D. C, November 2. Elections are in progress today in M ae- sachusette, Colorado, Nebraska, New York, Kentucky, Iowa, V lrgmi a Oh o acd Pennsylvania. In r.daition. Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Nevada and Washington choose either the entire or a pa-t of their - legislatures In all the states first nm;l, save Peon sylvania, Kentucky, Nebraska and Co lorado, the member of the respective legislatures are to be elected in ad dition to the state officers. In Mas sachusetts, Ohio, Virginia and Iowa governors will be elected. In Mary land and Ohio a special nat onal inter est is involved on account of a United States senator having to bs elected from each of those states. Kentucky wiil elect a clerk of the court of ap beals. Pennsylvania elects etate treasurer and auditor general. Ne braska elects a judge of the supreme court and regents of the University. Co lorado elects a chiei justice. JNew York elects a chief justice of the court of ap peals, a new assembly and the hrst municipal officers of Greater New York City. The greatest interest attached to Maryland, Obio and JNew York, in Ohio the democrats have indorsed the Cbicago pla'form, and the silver forces are contending for the establishment of their doctrine and the election of a senator. The republicans are making square tight for the present gold standard, for republican principles. and for the election of Mr. Hanna to the senate. Tbe-indications are that the republicans will carry the state. lo Maryland the important fight is over the senatorship. It is a question of the overthrow of Gorman or the re-astab- lisbment of Gormanism. Tbe situa tion is so mixed that few wise people attempt prediction. Gorman has the the aot'-Gorman element in his own party to contend with, and the repub- lcan factions are more or less at outs on account of the successful resistance to Mr. Wellington's attempt to estab lish a republican bossism. In New York the situation is even more mixed than in Marvland, but there is a little more indication as to the results. The democrats are divid ed into silver and gold factions, Tam manyites and anti-Tammanyites. The republicans have to contend with a division of their forces on account of the independent nominations of the Citizens' Union in New York City, and with a smtll fragment of the anti P.'att republicans. The interesting feature of the Mas sachusetts election is found in the fact that the democrats have come out squarely for the Chicago platform. The result is not in- doubt, bus the in terest is in knowing how large a vote the silver democrats can.eet in Mas sachusetts with the election of a re publican a foregone conclusion. In Iowa very important local considera- t;ons enter into the fight. The dem erat, in addition to making a fiht on the oid Brvan lines, have attacked the record of the present republican state officers.accusingthem of extravagance, etc. In Nebraska the democrats, pop ulists and silver republicans are unit ed, and it is generally expected tbat they will win. In Kentucky the most interesting feature of the fight is the struggle between Blackburn and his sil ver followers and the Carlisle Lindsay gold democrats. In Virginia there is no regular republican ticket. The democrats will elect the governor and probably the legislature, which will re-elect Senator Daniel. In Colorado there is a great mix up among the sil ver forces, the silver democrats hav ing nominated a gold iua for chief justice. Cleveland, O., November 2. To day is a typical November dy, cold and a steady drizzling, chilling rain. Tbe vote of the city is very light, al most a record breaker iu that direc tion. This morning the republican newspapers and the committee openly charged a secret effort on the part of Mavor McKisson to knife Hanna, and support the republican ticket. Hanna's friends fought McKisson for mayor and McKisson can doubtless turn Z.oOO votes from Hanna. Cincinnati, November 2.
