WHICH WILL IT BE?
Everything Now in Readiness Fop the Voting. ...... v- LEADERS ARE RESTING TO-DAY Richard Croker Claims 90,000 Demo cratic Majority in Manhattan Re publican Leaders Claim New York State Connecticut Politicians Are Urging the Stay-at-Homes to Come Out. . New York, Nov 5. Republicans and democrats are resting on the eve of battle. Since Saturday night there have been no developments in political circles in this state. The tired hosts of republican .paraders, weary as the. result of the long waifs and the marc "a In the rain on Saturday, made Sun day a day of rest in the full sense cf the word. The democrats after their parades and mass meetings in the va rious assembly districts of the borougil of Manhattan, on the same day, were also glad of the coming of Sunday. On both sides, however, it was recognized as the calm that precedes the storm. Only at the headquarters and at the leading political clubs were there any traces of political activity. Those in charge of the campaign employed tlieir time in dictating statements tor publi cation and in writing final letters of warning, of admonition or of Instruc tion to party leaders in the city or up the state. Both republican and de'uo cratic leaders revised their figures and election estimates, and both sides moved a peg or two. On the demo cratic side, Richard Croker claimeJ the borough of Manhattan by OO.tKM. plurality. The democrats have nut given out results of their canvass- by counties and assembly districts, but it is understood that they expect to carry New York state by from 20,000 to 30.000 plurality. The republ'can leaders, on the other hand, claim the siate by not less than 100,00 plurality. Senator Channcey M. Depew, who re turned to-day-from a tour through rural New York, is of the opinion that the republicans will come down to Harlem river with 185,000 plural' ly. Admitting that the democrats carry Greater New York by 90,000 plurality. Senator Depew figures would make. New York state republican by approx imately 95,000 plurality. This year students of election sta-( tistics at political headquarter ac knowledge that- much depends upon the new vote an'd the Increased regis tration in the state. If these new voters do not put in an appearance on Tuesdav it is the conservative opin ion that It will be difficult for the dem ocrats to overcome McKinley's major ity of 268,000 four years ago. Fair weather, however, is necessary In .se curing a full vote, and fair weatnep, while increasing republican plural'tJes In the' country sections of " the state, has generally not had the effect of ma terially increasing democratic majori ties In the large cities. For those rea sons 'both republican and democratic leaders" are at sea as to whether lair weather or; foul weather will mean republican weavtber or democratic weather In this state this year. ' New Haven, Nov 5. The last day preceding the eventful first Tuesday after the first Monday -in -November finds the situation in Connecticut muea the same as on the previous closing days of the campaign. - i Perhaps the feature of the day Is to be found In the distribution by the democrats of pasters on a scale much more elaborate probably than ever be fore attempted. It is sta'ted that iuto every household in Connecticut hold ing a voter there has gone a complete set of democratic pasters. At all events the' mails have been deluded-. and the voters or tne state win to-ingm find themselves provided with every facility for flie prompt and convenient casting of their ballots, to-morrow. Organization activity Is unusualy marked to-day also, and some of the older men of the state have remarked that they have never seen so much work done just before an election, It -seems to be apparent that the great drive of the democrats is to be ... ,1.. In 4ltfa stafa nn the, ctntA tfrlrir "and the republicans are - leaving no stone unturned to bring the figures of their candidates for state officers as close to the McKinley vote as possi ble. ' '. """' ' Both parties are directing a drive at the stay-at-home vote and unusual pre cautions are -being taken to get eutthe vote."- - '. ' ' ' - The republican leaders are, appar ently, ns confident as ever, and the democrats are to-dny possessed of an enthusiasm which leads them to talk of a democratic landslide. . -v C. F. THAYER'S STATEMENT, New Haven, Nov 4 5. Charles F. Thayer; ehalrnian-of the democratic state " central committee, gave out the following statement to the Associated Press to-days "I see no reason to alter the viewp expressed in- niy statement or Saturday,--The republicans - have proved by their last hour methods that they are on the run and have givt-u up the fight.. They' are sending out misleading circulars. -They are making misrepresentations and are resorting to every means to' elect their candi dates. On the-matter of presidential ticket, I feel that Connecticut may be. fairly classed as a doubtful state. In deed, the vote that Bryan will receive will astonish many, and If McKinley carries the sta'tcH will be by a narrow margin. - We shall certainly elect our full state ticket by a majority over all. "We will also elect Olldersleeve to con ?rres by a good majority., and ' the foirrth district will remain doubtful to the last. The state-senate will bo democratic.; ,-, My canvass, as , to y the to-redlct.'' ,., ii-. -.;. '' : ! MASSACHUSETTS WILfc CUT. - ? Boston,' NoV' 5". There was j no more stir aoit the' headquarters of the re publican br the democratic "state com. mlttetf ttere vthls- morning than there tbs two Tnorttba ago.' The plans of boihJ committee were made - long "tiEfieiJBlnee.i and, fcavtag1 been carrlep Jta Saturday nlsrht. and In view cf tot fact that the schedule of rallies embraced a list of such meetings to be held at points considered most ad vantageous, to-night, there was little left to be done In the final hours of the campaign. On 'the democratic side, the leaders were pleased to near an enthusiastic report from the Hon George Fred Williams, who"-reached home Sunday - after a speech-jnaking tour of six weeks, for Bryan, covering points in fourteen" states. Mr Wil liams expressed the greatest confidence that Mr Bryan would be elected. Noth ing had developed to change the claim made by the democrats on Saturday that they would elect . four congress men in Massachusetts and cut the plurality for McKinley down to 00.000. Tlie republican, leaders are waiting as patiently as possible to see Tues day night's figures confirm their claim that McKinley will receive 100,000 plurality in Massachusetts, and that only one democrat will be sent to con gress from this state. .... , BOTH CLAIM CALIFORNIA. " San Francisco, Nov 5. In this state the campaign has been attended with little excitement. The leaders of both parties seem equally confident and It is impossible from surface indica tions to predict the result of the elec tion. Chairman Stone of the repub lican state committee in a signed statement declares that California will give McKinley at least 12,000 plurali ty and send a full republican delega tion to congress. Chairman Sims of the -democratic committee, states over his signature that Bryan will have 15,000 plurality In the state and that not less than "four of the seven con gressmen elected will be democrats. KENTUCKY MAY LANDSLIDE. Louisville, Ky, Nov 5. With a quiet that is almost painful the demo crats and republicans throughout Kentucky to-day rested on their oars and awaited the opening of the polls to-morrow. Both sides continue to claim decisive victory, and a land slide either way need not be surpris ing. Conditions have so changed and party lines have been so shattered since the last general election that any forecast as to the outcome in this state is practically of no value. The weather is perfect all over the state nnu the indications are that the biggest vote ever polled in the state will be cast. MISSOURI DEMOCRATS SURE. St Louis, Mo, Nov 5. To-day was spent in drawing together the loose ends of the campaign and getting the voters In line for "the final effort to morrow. J. M. Seibert and Thomas J. Atkins, chairman respectively of the democratic and republican committees, reiterate the predictions made last night- and their respective followers lexpress the utmost confidence. If the present pleasant weather contin ues the vote cast -to-morrow, in St Louis and' throughout the state, will be heavy. ' The registration, especially in St. Louis, showed a heavy Increase. THE CAMPAIGN CLOSED.r ..'..' - Chicago, Nov 5. Evidence that the national campaign is as good as closed was seen at the Auditorium hotel last night when at 10 o'clock Senator Jones, the national democratic chair man, and J. G. 'Johnson, chairman of the democratic executive committee, appeared at Senator Banna's apart ments on the fifth floor, pushed ihe bell button and were Invited by the republican aatlonal chairman to come in. The . rival campaign 'managers ex: changed greetings. Inquired after each, other's health and finally dfrfted into a discussion of the political outlook. OHIO IS UNCERTAIN. Cincinnati, O., Nov 5. Oq the day before election there are no indications of radical changes in Ohio over 1890 with which year the Ohio returns will to-morrow night be compared. Four years .ago the republicans in Ohio had a plurality of 51,100 over the demo crats and 48,494 over Bryan as the candidate of both the democrats and the- populists. ' Bryan is on only one ticket In Ohio, this year. , It is con ceded that the democrats - will . make, gains In Cincinnati and in other cities but the republicans claim equally large gains in the rural districts, i MAINE IS REPUBLICAN. Portland, Me, Nov 5. With only one day Intervening before the national election, the voters of Maine appear .'ur more Interested In the outcome of the balloting in other, states than iu U.elr own. In Maine, , as usual, .the only question is just how. larg? the republican majority will be, and even this matter apparently does not inter est the voters in general to .any great extent. There were no indlca' ious to day that either party will make any unusual effort to bring out. a big vote, and a quiet, uneventful election day is expected .- . . . , , AMERICAN POLITICS V ABROAD.

Grand Military Display In Tien Tsin, China. , American and British Troops Lead in Equipment and UniformFrench and Italian Are a Showy Contrast, While the Germans Are Handicap ped by Ill-Fitting. ClothingThe Japanese Are the Most Interesting. Tien Tsin, China, Oct 1; With troops of eight nations and " every orauch of service, elbow to elbow un der actual field conditions, both Pekln and Tien Tsin at present afford a rich field of- comparative military ob servation of which the officers of the various forces are taking keen advant age. This is especially noticeable of the . continental forces, whose staffs are everywhere taking note of equip ments and methods. There are now quartered in this big camp what are said to be representative contingents of every military power. It is a mllii tary congress as complete as -If -devised only for display, and the con trast between the forces is very mark ed, both in equipment, method and discipline, yet at the same time ob serving officers find little room for criticism of any particular contingent of the Chinese expeditionary forces. In equipment and uniform there Is ap parently little question that the Ameri can and British troops are superior. The sober business-like khaki is in strong contrast to the showy French and Italian uniforms, while the Ger mans, otherwise a magnificent and picked body of men, are handicapped in comparison by their ill-fitting clothing. . The German uniform, is a mustard yellow khaki, apparently of very inferior quality. The blouse Is long and loose, without pockets, the trousers loose, and ho leggins are worn by the infantry. This Is completed with a- wide-brimmed .straw hat, such as is seen in the southern part of the United States, turned up at the side and fastened with a corps badge. One always overlooks the awardness Xt the uniform, however. In the splendid drill and discipline of the Kaiser's Chinese army, while Its field equip ment, though a bit heavy; Is Well up to date and compares favorably to that of any other force. By far the most picturesque troops here are the British native regiments from 'India. At present Great Britain has no white troops here except a part of the Royal Welsh Fusileers, known In - England as the "Duke of Connaught's 'Own" and a battalion of Australian volun teer naval reserves. The show of Tien Tsin Is the Six teenth Bengal Lancers, the "Gentle men regiment of India." out on pa rade. Magnificently mounted on country-breds, superb riders,, equip ment as perfect as care can make it, -with lance-pene-wa-ajrtteliig-th-Slxi feenth is. a regim any nation could feel proud of. The Indian cavalry are probably the heaviest arnied mounted troops in the world. Each man car ries the long heavy revolver, carbine and - heavy sabre. The uniform Is khaki, the blouse tight at the belt, loose cord trousers, russet leather leg gins and ' the inevitable turban. The Bombay Lancers are not inferior and the foot regiment, which include the Rajputs, the Punjab, and the Beloeh Istans, . make a spit idid appearance, the men being tall i qd slender and carrying themselves si "erbly. ' ' The Japanese, are, however, proba bly the most interesting studies " for the military men here. One loses sight of the rather slouchy white can vas uniforms and Frenehy high crowned caps In the machine-like drill and discipline of the Micado's men. In discipline they are easily ahead of all the other forces. Japanese sol dier works as none other does: He Is always busy; he does not drink and he is not in evidence on the streets. Detachments of the little white-clad chaps are always on the move. Whenever one goes In the surround: ing ' country for many miles put he finds a Japanese outpost, their field topographical parties are always busy v and their commissary and qtiarter master's departments are wonder fully active and complete. Many offi cers have found much to admire In their transport system. There, are no great bales or boxes in the Japanese supplies. Everything is put - up 1$ compact matting bound bundles, none too heavy for one man to handle and . the result Is expedition. It is the gen eral opinion of observers that the Jap anese soldier is the busiest, the quiet est, the best disciplined men in the Chinese armies. . . j . ' The big German camp, .which occu pies the grounds and buildings for merly used by the American troops, lying east of the foreign concession, Is easily the model of all the camps about Tien Tsin. It has attracted much attention and .nothing but favorable comment Is heard.' The Germans have a :scheme for use of the shelter tent which Is considered to be Ideal for warm weather. The pieces of tcanvas of an. entire company are lashed to gether and erected in the shape of a; shed, without partitions. . It is practi cally a roof and rear wall,, and Is . usually erected in the shape of two: side , of a square, the walls being tq the north and west." ' The Oermaii cooking equipment Is complete In; every detail and they have a wonder ful quantity of wagons and transport. There are new designs-In field ambu lances, -i narrow and springy, wagon ettes ' for general -officers, fjeW post wagons and nearly every sort, of ve hicle an -army can need.- In variety and completeness of outfit the . German representation is beyond, comparison with anv .force here. , , " : ; '. The question of transport , is hatur: ally the. most Interesting to military observers- and In this connection .the British have come In for much praise. As organized the British . forces ; In China; have the most effective field transport for the character of cam- Lpaigatnff.taey -are called .apbn to perr tax-ax. cauacn eompanyuscomniete wita bits wn "pack train, from which- It is fajot separated. . aStout 'rmtle Jnaisn. mules hardly anucn forger xhan, don-j keys, carry ailsqpplles jind .so far the - Britis.ii troops -have 'not "suffered Toi 'lfrck' bir supplies In -any of The toarche "the: allies have made.

' This is made necessary however, 'by the fact that the Indian regiments are composed of high caste men..-, The ranks of the" cavalry regi ments are filled with blood relatives of Raja,hs and prices and these- men are n,ever . called .-upon'; for- camp labor. They are; fighting men essentially and It is. almost safe to say :that every en listed man in -the Sixteenth. Bengals and the Bombays has bis own servant and grooili.

QUEEN A LIFE SAVER. The Portugal Ruler Jumps Into the - . Sea-and Saves a Boatman. New York, Nov 5.r-The queen of Por tugal, at Cascns, a fashionable seaside resort, made a thrilling- rescue and is now- a heroine In the eyes of all .her subjects, says a Lisbon dispatch to the : Journal, and ' Advertiser. The queen was on the beach Idly v.-atching' Catalao C,room, her boatman, bringing his boat ashore. Suddenly a wave overturned the boat. The queen, who Is an expert swimmer, seeing that he was drowning, sprang Into the sea In her clothing before any pf her attend ants could, prevent , her.

Hartford, Nov 5. Q. .P. Fyler, chairman of the republican state com mittee, gave to the .Associated Press to-day the following statement of the election to-morrow: "McKinley will be- given a plurality of over 30,000 in this -state. The republican state ticket will be elected but with a less vote than theiuational ticket: This Is owing to the fact that many gold democrats will support the democratic state' ticket. However,-- the entire re publican state ticket will be elected.

Father - Curtin thought that inasmuch as the reference to r000flp nortninwi to "worldlv . affairs that It was especially applicable to our own aay anuj time. ura mm TMiimiiifip frnm one nlace to another, en deavoring to induce pi-ople to stultify themselves by casting tueir uanois election day for certain .candidates, whether they consider them qualified to fill the offices they are looking for or not. He wanted to know how law T,-aa tn ti mnintnined when those who are expected to prosecute law break ers make themselves tne associuie i v,o i.m-iooo lemint nnd furnish unfor tunates with funds to, secure liquor enough to keep tnetn stupui uum after election. "Who'll prosecute the irL-a tvmt will be taken'in from now uutil after election?" asked the rever end gentleman. "uq you tiuu wt men who are responsible for their condition can afford to do it? No. And this has been going on in our own district for several weeks, and has occasioned considerable comment, public nnd private, written up--in the papers and made the subject of dis cussion in all parts of the city, princi pally because no such work is known in other districts. It is painful to those who desire to see this neighbor hood stand well in the community to hear men who come around here only at election time, some of them resi dents of New Haven and other places, tell what they can do with a little money in this district, the question most frequently asked being, "How are things on the Abrigador?" aud the answer: "Oh, we've been up there; the Indians are with us." The reason there Is more of that kind of work go ing on In this district is because it is generally believed that there Is a lar ger scum vote here than in any other section of the city. They are met in the saloons, where most of the evils we have to contend against originate. Who are these people? -They. are the gutter snipes of this district, the clothes line thieves, the fellows who sit up nights andij enter your chicken coops when you 4 re asleep, the ones who robbed this chirrch' and whose conduct in -various-, other-., ways has been and is a standbier disgrace to the neighborhood." Father Curtin ad vised his people .fb .be sober on elec tion day and tovttej; according to the dictates of their Wn conscience. He has. preached a-Hod, many sermons plnce he ofime to Waterbury. but it is doubtful if he evief spoke to. better ad vantage tbnn he jdld yesterday.

The sublect of Father Cnrtin's ser mon, together with some of his words, were the talk of the town yesterday and to-day and brought out this re joinder from one of ur prominent re publicans: "Father- Curtin must not overlook the fact that the vote's of the bum element count' In proportion; to their number as well as those of .- the silk stocking brigade, but of 'course they have to be sought In widely dif ferent places and -by taeties peculiarly adapted to their class.

If they hap pened to find them in larger numbers on the Abrigador than in other "sec tions that was not the fault of those who wanted to see them.,. The vote getters would have. followed them just a vurcuuii uiio aay oiner part or the town. Other men took care of the silk .stocking crowd, and while they did not incur the same amount of cen sure as those who went among the 'Indians,'- still it is my belief that they did just as effective work. .But we will not crow about what has been done yet. Meegt after election and we will have a .chat about this whole mat ter." This is in line with what Father Curtin said in reference to the state ment of one of our ex-goverhors, who, when taunted about purchasing votes, defended his right to buv them. n,l shows pretty conclusivelv that the av erage republican politician Is an ar dent believer in that way of doing business. While it Is true that the r publicans scoured the whole town for votes, the opinion seems to be general that they devoted more time to the -hleU(l,t-han to any oer district. hether this was due to the difficulty they experienced in getting any respec tab e member there to turn their cdats JJrZ he'r Breat deliht ia ending so many converts, is not known, but it is thought that when the time comes to' deliver the goods the south enders wiR show that they have been jollyimrTni republicans for the past month by ca St t'ickef018 f0rthe eydemo- WEDDED THIS MORNING.
