New York's Democratic Chair

and Predicts This
Republican Chairman Thinks Odell
Will Be Victor by Something
Like 37,000
Leader Murphy, of Tammany Hall,
Sees'a Crushing Plurality for Coler
Below the Bronx—Little Likelihood
of Radical Changes in the Congres
sional Delegation — General Public
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.—The lull be
fore the opening of the final struggle
tomorrow finds the leaders of both the
great parties still claiming large and,
in many instances, increased plurali
ties for their respective candidates.
Frank Campbell, of the Democratic
state committee, has declared himself
convinced that his estimate of 35,000
plurality in the state for Coler for
governor erred on the side of modesty
and now expresses confidence that the
candidate is sure of election by at least
50,000. Mr. Campbell, who is at his
home in Bath, declared tonight that his
increased estimate was based on late
information which indicated that a
landslide for the Democratic party
might be expected. He thought it not
improbable that Mr. Coler's plurality
might run as high as 65,000 votes. Mr.
Coler himself is still more sanguine,
being su« tonight that the governor
ship wJ" be his by a plurality of 60,
--000 vr ,-s.
On the Other Hand.
Col. George W. Dunn, chairman of
the Republican state committee, on
the other hand, stands fast to his orig
inal estimate of 37,000 plurality for
Odell, which is practically the same as
that of the candidate himself.
John N. Carlisle, chairman of the
Democratic executive committee, said
today that while he did not look for a
Democratic landslide, he was certain
that Coler will have a plurality of at
least 35,000. votes and that he would
carry eight or ten counties outside of
Greater New York, including Erie and
Despite the enormous divergence of
estimates, there is at the last moment
practically no change in the betting,
the odds remaining at 2 to 1 on Odell.
Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tam
many Hall, could see no reason tonight
for changing his estimate of 112,000
plurality for Coler in Greater New
York. Of this he expects 78,000 votes
to be contributed by Manhattan and
the Bronx, 30,000 by Brooklyn, 3,000 by
Queen and 1,000 by Richmond. Re
publican estimates refuse to concede
more than 45,000 in Manhattan and the
Bronx and cut down Brooklyn to 14,
--000, reducing the Democratic plural
ity below the Bronx to about 60,000
or just about half Mr. Murphy's fig
Few Congressional Changes.
Leaders of both parties agree that
there is little likelihood of any radical
change in the complexion of the con
gressional delegation of New York
county, the results in many districts
icing foregone conclusions.
Outside of the battle for the gov
ernorship, the election in the metrop
olis is exciting unusually little interest.
Rarely has a campaign been conducted
with so little excitement, and the in
dications are that the general public
apathy will result in an unusually
quiet election day.
Negro Kills One Person With an Ax
and Fractures Skull of Another—
Swift Retribution.
SALEM, Ala., Nov. 3.—Sam Harris,
a negro, entered the home of George
Meadows, a planter, who lives six
miles south of here, during Mr. Mead
ows' absence today and struck his wife
and eighteen-year-old daughter on
the head with an ax, crushing Mrs.
Meadows' skull and fracturing that of
the daughter. Mrs. Meadows has nev
er regained consciousness and will die.
The negro was placed in custody and
held until Miss Meadows had suffi
ciently recovered to identify him.
This she did this afternoon and the
negro was taken in charge by about
125 men and his body riddled with bul
lets. Harris denied his guilt until the
first shot was fired, and then he ac
knowledged the crime. The condition
of the house showed that robbery waa
the purpose of the crime.

Sheriff Refuses to Receive Her Until
the Warrant Has Been Reg
ulariy Served.
FREEHOLD, N. J., Nov. 3.—Miss
Laura Biggar, for whom a warrant
was issued for an attempt at fraud in
connection with the will of the late
millionaire, Henry M. Bennf.tt, expe
rienced considerable difficulty in gain
ing admission to the county jail here
when she appeared at the sheriff's of
fice today and announced that she de
sired to surrender herself. The diffi
culty arose over the fact that the war
rant was in the hands of a constable at
Asbury Park and the sheriff declined to
take the responsibility of locking the
would-be prisoner up until the docu
ment had been formally served on her.
Miss Biggar, finding the sheriff ob
durate, insisted on waiting in the wit
ness room of the jail until the consta- ,
ble arrived with the warrant, when
the sheriff's scruples having been re
moved, he consented to receive Miss
Biggar as a prisoner.
Counsel for Miss Biggar said that
since the accusation was laid against
her she had been living in New York.
She would not, he said, accept bail so
long as it was not forthcoming for
Hendricks and Stanton. It is under
stood that no indictment has yet been
found against Miss Biggar.

Reign of Terror Which He Has Caused
Never Before Had a Parallel in Bos
ton—Most of the Young Women At
tacked Were Domestics—ln the Asy
lum Last Year.
Special to The Globe.
BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 3. —Members
of the state police will tomorrow place
under arrest the man who is suspected
of being the "Jack the Slugger," who
has terrorized the suburbs of Boston
and the surrounding towns and cities
since last June. The specific charge
against him will be the murder of Miss
Clara A. Morton, who was so fearfully
assaulted in the grounds of the Mc-
Lean asylum in Waverly last Satur
day night that she died the next day.
While, not directly charging him with
them, the police suspect he is the man
who caused the death of Miss Agnes
McPhee in Somerville as the result of
a similar assault on Oct. 3, and the
terrible injury of at least five other
young women within the last . few
Is Harvard Graduate.
The man under suspicion and who
will be arrested is a member of one of
the best known families of Boston. He
is about forty years of age, a graduate
of Harvard and has been very promi
nent in social circles. Some two years
ago he developed symptoms of insanity
and was confined for a time in the
McLean asylum. He was released
from the asylum about a year ago.
Saturday night before the assault on
Miss Morton a man answering his de
scription was seen in the grounds, and
the police have not the slightest doubt
that they have the right man under
surveillance tonight.
Has Had No Parallel.
The reign of terror caused by this
"Jack, the Slugger," has had no par
allel in Boston. The mysterious as
saults on women began last June and
have continued without the slightest
clue being found to the perpetrator
until now. There have been more than
a score of assaults, always on young
women, usually domestics who were
out late, and never twice in the same
locality. In each instance the cir
cumstance was alike and one man
seems to have committed them all.

Ladrones three miles from^Bacolod.

May Smith Puts a Bullet Into the Body
of Roy Williams —Wound Is
Not Fatal.
Because the man she loved refused
to marry her, after he had promised to
make her his wife, May Smith, agea
23, living at 1125 Second street south,
Minneapolis, shot Roy Williams in the
shipping room of the Palisade mill
shortly after 7 o'clock last evening.
The bullet lodged above the eighth
rib in the region of the heart, where it
made a slight flesh wound.
The shipping room was filled with
men when the woman entered, but no
notice was taken of her, inasmuch as
she had been seen there before talk
ing to Williams.
"Then you won't marry me?" she
was heard to say in anger.
"No. I'm through with you. I don't
waat to ever see you again," Williams
"Then do I understand that you
won't keep your promise to marry me?"
she continued, closing up to Williams
with her hand concealed under her
"That is what I said,"" Williams an
The woman instantly drew her hand
from under her cloak and, pressing a
revolver close to Williams' breast, dis
charged the weapon. The report of
the exploding cartridge spread con
sternation among the men who were at
work in the near vicinity.
"I'm shot!" Williams exclaimed,
jerking open his shirt and examining
the wound. Several of the men tried
to catch the woman as she was leav
ing, following her down a dark pas
sageway. Fearing that they would
overtake her, 3he discharged her re ■
volver twice at her pursuers. They
gave up the chase when the bullets
began to whiz uncomfortably close to
their heads.
The patrol wagon was called and re
moved Williams to his home. Detec
tives Howard and Delaittre arrested
the Smith woman half an hour later
near the Palisade mill. Another wom
an, /ho gave her name as Nellie Bol
ton, is being held as a witness.
The Smith woman did not try to de
ny that she shot Williams, and her
only regret was that she didn't kill
"I have supported Williams for
nearly a year," she said to the detec
tives who arrested her. "I loved him
and I believe that my love was sin
cere. He told nic that he intended to
marry me and I was led to believe that
he was in earnest. Whenever he want
ed any money I gave it to him regard
less of the amount. A few days ago he
gave me to understand that he didn't
intend to keep his promise, and Satur
day night I went to the mill where he
was working and he repeated that he
was through with me. I ,said that I
would see him again Monday night,
and if I received the same answer it
would go hard with him.
"Monday morning I ate considerable
morphine and when I went to the mill
I was crazed by the drug. Williams
called me a fool because I kept him
supplied with money and laughed
when I asked him if he intended to
marry me. I shot him then and regret
thai I didn't kill him."

Rosing's Majority in the State
Conservatively Estimated

Thorough and Democrats Are
Fight Has Been Hot on Judges and"
Between Candidates for Sheriff and
Clerk of the Courts, but Democrats
Have All the -Best of It—Wagener
Makes Great Race and Will Win.
Weather—Probably cool and cloudy,
with occasional showers.
Polls Open—6 a. m. to 7 p. m.
Today is the battle of the ballots In
Minnesota, and to say that the out
look for the success of the Democratic
candidates is promising, is putting it
very conservatively.
Chairman Buck, of the Democratic
state -central committee, claims the
election of Leonard . Rosing by from
20,000 to 25,000. The managers of the
Republican committee have departed
from their usual custom of claiming
the state by 75,000 and admit that the
apathy of the Republican voters is
the only thing that will defeat Van
The estimate of Chairman Jamison a
week ago was that Van Sant would have
20,000 majority, but this estimate was
again revised last evening and 4,500
taken off so that even the most rosy
estimate for the Winona statesman by
his political adviser is 15,500.
Reports from two score of counties
received by Chairman Buck, of the
Democratic state central committee,
are to the effect that Rosing will car
ry these counties by handsome major
In the congressional districts the
Democrats are confident of the elec
tion of two members of the next house.
Lind is certain to defeat Fletcher in
the Fifth and Dubois will secure the
majority over Buckman in the Sixth.
Some of the other counties are debata
ble ground.
In Ramsey county there will proba
bly be 23,000 votes cast and 3,500 ma
jority for Rosing is the estimate by
the local county committee.
In Hennepin county the Democratic
county committee is confident not only
that Land will be elected to congress,
but that the county will give Rosing a
handsome majority. The election of
Haynes, the Democratic candidate for
mayor, is conceded.
The county campaign in Ramsey haa
been particularly well conducted, the
Democratic city and county organiza
tion joining with the candidates in
first attending to the registration and
then .in holding ward meetings and
bringing the issues of the day plainly
before the voters of the city.
Judges Will Be Elected.
» Thomas D. O'Brien and J. C.Michael,
candidates for the district bench, have
made a close but dignified campaign
and their election is practically assur
ed. During the past week the Repub
lican county committee has been mak
ing a very vigorous campaign for
Judge Lewis and each speaker at the
ward gatherings has been directed to -
make a special plea for his election.
The Republican committee has given it
out that Judge Orr could look out for
himself. The Republicans have been
unable to say cne word against either
the personal character or legal ability
of the Democratic candidates for the
district bench and their only play haa
been the partisan cry that party can
didates must be elected.
The fight foi sheriff has been a par
ticularly warm one, and while the Re
publicans started out on the theory
that Qutgley was easy for Justus, the
campaign has developed the fact that
Justus is not in the running. In each
ward In the city Quigley has developed
surprising strength, and even in the
First ward, the local Republican
stronghold, the friends of Justus now
admit the Democratic candidate will
hold Justus almost even. In the Fifth
ward the Bohemian voters who were
turned down by Justus are out openly
for Quigley, and skirmishers sent out
by the managers of the Justus cam
paign were politely told that promises
•would not go this time, and that Qulg
iey was the man of their choice. The
more enthusiastic supporters of Quig
ley claim a majority for him in every
ward in the city with the exception of
the First, Seventh and Eleventh wards.
Wagener Has Made a Great Fight.
Ed Rogers has been given the race of
his life, and if he gets the office again
will be entitled to the $60,000 which It
will bring in, on the theory of having
expended 10 per cent of the emolu
ments before the vote was cast. John
Wagener, the Democratic candidates!
who is a vote getter from the old town!
has made a magnificent campaign, and;
has left no stone unturned. With the
solid Democratic vote and his nuraer-
