States Show Both Sides Very
Confident.
Chicago, Nov.—Long lie fore the polls
opened this morning six lines of voters
waited to cast their ballots and indica
tions point to a heavy vote promptly reg
istered. Iti many preciucts 150 votes
were cast before 7 o'clock and more than
two thirds of the total vote is expected to
be in by noon. Every precaution has
been taken by both parties to prevent
fraud. Thousands of warrants were put out
in case ceitain men attempt to vote. The
reports from the state shows the same
early heavy vote. The the republicans
claim Cook county by 25,000 and the
democats 30,000. Weather cloudy.
New York, Nov. 6. — Ccol, clear
weather this morning brought out the
voters in hosts, ballots being cast at the
rate of one every minute. There is prac
tically no scratching and quiet prevails
all over the city. Croker was up early
and cast his ballot shortly after 6 o'clock,
returning to Tammany hall, where he
will remain during the day. Up the
state points report an unusual alacrity on
the part of the voters, with fine weather.
Indianapolis, Nov. 6.— "Fraud" is
the burden of the cry this morning in
the party papers and central committees.
The last legislature repealed the law mak
ing the buying of votes a criminal of
fense. It is said if three votes in each
precinct change from McKinley to Bryan,
Bryan will carry Indiana. Some scratch
ing reported up state.
St. Louis; Nov. 6 —General interest
in the campaign was shown this morning
by a heavy early vote. The weather is
clear and crisp. Twelve hundred war
rants for alleged fraudulent registration
are issued to deputy sheriffs who are at
variance with the democratic police. One
sheriff was arrested early. The normal
republican majority in St. Louis is 16,000,
Portland, Nov. 6—W. E. Burke, sec
retary of the democratic state committee,
this morning made his first announce
ment and says McKinley can't carry the
state by more than three thousand, yet
don't concede the state. The vote was
light up to 110011.
Des Moines, la., Nov. 6.—Weather is
cloudy in the eastern central and crisp
and clear in the western part of the state,
but a large vote will lie cast according to
the registration. The democrats are
making a stiff fight in the secoud con
gressional district.
Columbus, O., Nov. 6.—Heavy voting
reports come to the headquarters of both
parties this morning, which the republi
cans claim mean certain victory; but the
democrats, too, claim their vote is com
ing out. Up to noon no trouble had been
reported anywhere.
Phoenix, Ariz , Nov. 6.—Indications
are that there will be a close contest for
congressional delegate. Both parties
claim the election by a majority of 650.
Voting liegan early and is heavy. Every
vote will lie got out.
Kansas City, Nov. 6.—Ideal weather
brought out a large vote. Owing to a
ruction in the democratic ranks the re
publicans hope to" carry this county
which is nominally democratic.

out Minnesota this morning. The first
two hours of balloting brought out a
a
a
large percentage of the vole iu Minne
apolis and St. Paul.
Spokane, Nov. 6—Fully fifty per cent
of the vote throughout Eastern Wash
ington and Northern Idaho was cast by
noon. The weather conditions are fav
orable.
Milwaukee, Nov. 6.-Reports through
out the state indicate a quiet election
with the republicans fully confident.
Sioux Fai.es, S. D., Nov. 6.— Ideal
weather brings out a large vote in this
state and North Dakota.
Baker City, Ore., Nov. 6—Weather
fine. Early vote heavy.
Elect a Senator.
Raliegh, N. C. Nov. 6. —In addition
to electing a governor and other state
officers the people of North Carolina are
today taking a primary vote for United
States senator. As it is the first time in
the history of the state when the people
have had an opportunity of practically
electing a United States senator more in
terest is manifested in the result than in
the election of the state ticket. The
four leading candidates in the field for
the senatorship are General S. Carr, of
Durham, ex-Goveruor Thomas J. Jarvis,
of Greenville, Colonel A. N. Weddell, of
Wellington and F. M. Simmons of
Raleigh. The campaign has been one of
the most active in the political history of
the state and at the close the strength of
the leaders appears to be so nearly equal
that it is difficult to forecast the result.
Bryan has Confidence.
Lincoln, Nov. 6,—Weather it perfect
and a large vote is being polled. Bryan
arrived from Omaha at 10:15 accom
panied by his brother and securing a cer
tificate of registration from the city
clerk cast his vote. Considerable betting
is being made on ihe gubernatorial re
sult, republicans showing money that
Poynter won't be elected. Bryan haa
faith in Croker carrying New York and
Jones Ohio.
British Surprise Boers.
London, Nov. 6.—General Dorien
surprised a laager near Belfast in eastern
Transvaal but the British were pre
vented from following thetr advantage
by a blizzard which compelled them to
return to camp. The Boers followed
boldly. Captain Chambers of the Cana
dian rifles was killed and Major Sanders
wounded. Other losses were, British,
one killed, fourteen wounded.
Bryan Talks 01 Victory.
Lincoln, Nov. 6—The Bryan home
guards escorted the candidate to his
home after he voted. They called for a
speech from the front porch. He thanked
them for their loyalty and hoped they
wou'd meet again in twelve hours to re
joice over the victory. Bryan then went
to bed and was asleep in five minutes.
Judge's Confidence.
Youngstown, Ohio, Nov. 6.—Grant
Hamilton, Judge's cartoonist arrived
here this morning from New York. So
sure was he of the election of McKinley,
Hamilton said he got out the election
issue of Judge three weeks ago, showing

the way to California. There's no second
issue made in case Bryan is elected.

customs were Jii, 888,000 Mexican money,
whicn is an increase over any of the pre

SURE TO WIN
No Indications on the First Bulle
tins that the Democrats wiN Up
set the Great Majorities of 1896.
Boston, Nov. 6.—The town of Avon,
Mass., haa the honor of making the first
complete return at 0:30 o'clock. It ia
150, McKinley 174. In 1894 Bryan had
no, McKinley 237, a net gain of 94.

secured 10 votes and McKinley 177. The
town of Goanold, McKinley 19, Bryan 3.

Bryan Hears From Massachusetts
Chicago, Nov. 6. — After Ghairman
Jones received the Massachusetts report
be called up over the long distance and
informed him of the result. "Good,"
said "Bryan, "I'm supriaed at Massachu
setts."
Rioting In Denver.
Denver, Nov. 6.— Two men were
killed and four wounded at the polling
pla:e on Twenty Second and Larimer
streets this morning. The dead are Of
fice Carpenter, (white); wounded John
Stuart Harvey, (white); Richard Hard
man, Deputy Charley Green, Special
Policeman Hamilton Jackson (colored.
The polling place is in a tough section.
Early a crowd of roughs attempted to get
beyond the limit line. When the offi
cers began to push them back Brand
ford fired and killed Carpenter. Imme
diately a fusilade began. Intense ex
citement prevailed. It was feared that a
general riot wonld follow but fifty police
were soon present and stopped further
damage.
Florida Has State Capital Fight
Jacksonnillr, Fla.. Nov. 6.—Whether
Florida's capital is to be removed from
Tallahassee will be practically settled by
the primary election in progress today.
This question has absorbed the attention
of politicians and voters throughout Flor
ida to the exclusion of all other state
and national issues. The presidential
and state elections of themselves would
have stirred up comparatively little iu
terest, but the question of removing the
capital has made the campaign one of the
liveliest ever seen in Florida. Four cit
ies are contending for the honor. Talla

basaee desired to retain the capital, be

there are three candidate*— Jack

Should one of the three oppMftpte of
Tallahaaaee receive a plurality of tbo
votes cast at the primary today Uta tato

a
, A Republican CMfresp.
Chicago, Nov. 5— Congressman Bob'
cock, chairman of the repnblicno con
gressional campaign committee, gave to
the Associated Prêta tonight the fotlow
ing statement covering the expectations
of the republicans At to the next hone»;
The congressional campaign Ip»
reached a paint where the only question
is the sise of the republican majority. In
the statement given to the press on the
23th, J said the republican membership
would not be lese than 187. This num
ber I considered at the time wne sure be
yond any reasonable doubt, Since then
conditions have continued to improro.
The Croker-Jones advice to the demo
crats suggesting fraud by the republicans
has done us much good, for no one can
point to a single instance where n repub
lican member has been elected by fraud
either in the rotes cast or in the count
after they were cast; while the majority
of the democratic representation in the
house comes from districts where the re
publican vote ia driven from the poll* by
the shot gun, or if in tuny caps it 1* east,
it is counted for the democratic candidate
and the will of the people defeated. Thin
cry or wolf coming from the (tarty that
stands sponsor for fraud of the worst type
will be resented at the poll». And I
have every reason to believe that folly
2oo republicans will be elected to the
Fifty-seventh congress.
(Signed) J. w. Babcock.
Rioting tt Brazil.
Brazil, Iud., Nov. «.—At Corny ville
this morning n riot wo* precipitated in a
saloon over politics. Fifty joined in the
fight. Over aoo shots were fired. Wal
lace Graves was instantly killed. Wil
liam Houston and seven others were in
jured. No arrests yet made.
Useful Ihr Comparison.
The states claimed by democrats upon
which they base their hopes of election
ere ludanfe, Maryland, Illinois, Ohio,
Kentucky, West Virginia, New York and
New Jersey. The republicans expect to
carry out of the Bryan column the fol
lowing states: Washington, Idaho, Utah,
Wyoming, Kansas and South Dakota.
As the election returns ran tonight it
will be helpful to have the majori
ties of 1896 to figure upon.
Below we give the table of majorities:
