THE GREAT RACE FOR PRESIDENT IS ON TODAY.
BOTH MANAGERS CLAIMING A SAFE MAJORITY
Even the most astute politicians have j
been compel ed to acknowledge them
selves be ffl--d whenjt comes to pre
dicting with any degree of cortainty to
day’* election.
Whether it will be Bryan, o: wheth
er it will be McKinley, will not be
-with any, definiteness un* u
this night. Both eurocrats
and the republicans claim that victory
will perch on their banners, and al
most In the same breath allow that the
contest will be the closest of any na
tional election of recent years.
Chairman J, K. Jones, of the nation
al democratic campaign committee, and
Mark Hanna are notable and promi
nent exceptions to this rule. They
claim an overwhelming majority for
tldr respective Candidates.
The lines of the contest have ben
draw. na the issues of the
groat campaign ac sharply dehned in
the minds of the voters.
As in the last, national campaign, the
erpublicans have used money uusyint-
has had practically an
inexhaustible supply of money, and be
has rot failed to avail iiUnset! u. the
full oi hie resources.
In the so-called doubtful states in
the middle west—llli-ois, Ohio, Indi
ana and Kansas, and in the east in New
York, Maryland, West Virginia and
Kentucky— republican oampaign man
agers have been able to Becnre from
national he idqaartera all tbe money
they needed.
Whatever strength the use oi this
money has given the republican Candi
da's is more than offset" by the tremen
dous popularity and personal following
of Mr. Bryan. His specchmaking tour*
since the campaign began have been a
continued and continuous scries of ova
tione. Tho enthusiasm and attach
ment exhibited by his adherents have
never before been equaled in American
politics.
The magnificent demonstrations in
New York and Chicago were pregnant
with significance. The rosult o! the
election of today maybe said to de
pend on the two stales in which Mr.
Bryan was accorded such tremendously
enthusiastic receptions.
The New York demonstration takes
on an added significance when it Is re
membered how far from friendly was
the reception Mr. Bryan got in Tam
many’s town four years ago. Both para
ties claim New York state, but It is
conceded that if Bryan can carry the
etty by a large enough majority he will
turd the balance the republicans bring
down from nptho state In his fayor.
On the eye of the election McKinley
Is tavored in the betting at odds of four
and five to one.
Just bow meaningless this as indi
cating the state of public opinion will
be better appreciated when the national

JONEd* STATEMENT.
Chicago, Nov. Senator Jones,
chairman pf tbe democratic national
today issued bis final ante-elcctlou
statement. Ho i efuses,temake a" fore
cast.
Senator Jones ssye: “Viewing all
reports from our organizers in states
and counties in doubtful districts, the
deep interest in the present campaign
must have a significance. W have tbe
best organization, state and national,
ever seen in a presidential contest.
Thera Is not a doubting Thomas in the
whole organization. Under the cir
cumstances there is no room to doubt
that Bryan’s victory will be over
whelming, and I expect to see his suc
ceis conceded before 11 p. m, Tuesday.
Reports from doubtful states are im
proving every hour. 1 received reports
from New Jersey yesterday of the most
astonishing character. The assurances
from Ohio are more than I could bope
for; also from West Virginia and Cali
fornia. Our friends In Illinois today
arc more confident than over. Extrav
agant republican claims now only excite
derision. At one time before their
character was understood we were un
easy about them, but we were quick to
perceive that, like republican offers to
bet, they were mere bluff* to keep op
oourage. 1 have no doubts about the
result.”
Word was telegraphed far and wide
to democratic state leaders to work from
now until the close of the polls, as If
their, lives depended upon it.
Vice-Presidential Candidate Steven
son today said that his Observations and
feelings are much the same a* in the
oiosing hours of the campaign of 1892,
-- ’ ■
when Cleveland was elected.
BRYAN'S LAST SPEECH.
tjgtaha, Neb., Nov. s.—William J.
Bryan, democratic candidate for presi

tonight and tho enthusiasm manifested
by his thousands of hearers has never
been equalled in this state.
Mr. Bryan made a dashing trip
through "the doubtful districts of Ne
bntstttaod grtift crowds met him every
where.- Tonight Mr. Bryan said: “I
- * ■ ■■ ■
am in goM condition, and have neyer
felt hotter in my life.”
SOME FRICTION.
Pekin. Nov. 5-—Considerable friction
exists,among the foreign commanders'
regarding tho places to be selected for
occupation by the respective forces of
the allies.
THE’ELECTION HERE.
The eleotion In Brunswick and
Glynn oounty today will be a quiet
one, inasmuch as there is no doubt as
to how the people will vote—Bryan,
Stevenson and Brantley,
Although there is no hot opposition,
it is the duty of every demoorat in the
oounty to go to the polle aad swell the
majority. Thle Uthe home of our dis
tinguished congressman, and we
ahonld by all means make it the banner
oounty of the district. Glynn has the
■Votes—she oan easily do it, if the peo
ple will juat turn out.
Let’s go the polls today and bury re
publicanism so deep tbas it will never
again rise in this district.
The polls will be open in all the
county precincts at the usual hours.

A LOGICAL ARGUMENT.
Our Able Representative Handled
the Issues ol the Day In a
Masterly Manner.
The fr.ends of Congressman W. G.
Brantley were very much pleased by
tho throng which packed the opera
house last night to heal the closing
speech of his magnificent campaign and
all present will long remember the
able, logical and patriotic gem of ora
tory they heard.
Mr. Brantley, always a speaker of
ability, was at his best last night. All
the Issues of the day were one by one
handled in a masterly manner and it
was clearly demonstrated that the
democratic party is the party of the
people.
Mr. Brantley scored Governor Roosev
velt, which seemad to greatly please his
hearers. He said;
"There is one man in this campaign
who baa made enemies out of nearly
every democrat. He is the man who
carried on the Spanith-Amorican war.
The man that killed all the Spaniards,
Theodore Roosevelt.
“Mr, Roosevelt in one of his speechea
said that the demcrats were cowards,
“Mr. Boosffvclt forgot that the first
man to lose’ his life in the reoent war—
Worth Bagley—was a democrat.
“Mr. Roosevelt forgot that the man
that sunk the Spanish fleet in Manilla
bay—Admiral George Dewey—was a
democrat.
“Mr. Roosevelt forgot that the hero
of tho Merimac—Lieutenant Hobson—
was a demoorat.
“Mr. Roosevelt forgot thatthe man
who is the real hero of the war, and who
sunk tho large Spanish fleet in the har
bor of Santiago-Admiral Winfield
Scott Schley—was a democrat.
“Mr. Roosevelt forgot that the man
who really saved the rough riders—a
little dried up fellow, General Joe
Wheeler—ls a democrat.”
Mr. Brantley demonstrated to his
audience how the McKinley admini
stration supported the trusts. He told
them of the armor plate trnsl, and how
the democrats tried to pass a bill, di
recting secretary of war not to pay over
a certain price per ton for armor plate,
but it was voted down by the republic
cans, and now we arc paying more for
this material than the trust charges
other couutriee.
Mr, Brantley ended hla speech by say
ing that ho he hoped the people of
this oountry would today elect the
man who stands for the people—Wil
liam Jennings Bryan,
New Georgia syrup and buckwheat,
lajt L. B. Roberts’, corner Egtnont and
4-lbsaarle streets.
