hottest political contest ever waxed in
Marylaud Buds the situation as perplex
ing as it was at the opening of the cam?
paign. While the flirht on the municipal
ticket in Baltimore has been sharp and
exciting, all of the fine"work and shrewd
political prset'ce jhas been concentrated
in the struggle for contrcl of the legisla?
Chairman Scott, of the Republican
committee, claims they will have from 110
to 100 of the 117 members ol tho legisla?
ture on joint ballot; that the'Republican
candidate for State comptroller will have
from 15,000 to 2D.000 plurality; that thoy
will elect all the judges, and that tho en?

While some of the wild heads umong
the friends of,Hicks and Caldwell claim
that they will carry the city by 1100 to
351) majority, those who figure for facts
and not for desired results place no con?
fidence in such calculations. They know
that Hicks and Caldwell aro in hot water
up to their necks and they only hope to
secure their election by a bare majority.
Many who announce their purpose to
vote for the nominees of the Salem con?
vention acknowledged yesterday that
there was little hope of success.
The figure-makers for the Salem nomi?
nees pretend to believe that Hicks and
Caldwell will carry the city by at least
300 and that the result in the various
wards will be as follows:
First ward?Majority for Hicks and
Second ward?Majority for Hicks and
Third ward?Majority for McClnnahan
and Hartwell, 225.
Fourth ward?Majority for Hicks and
Fifth ward?Majority for Hicks and
Cald well, 80. This calculation gives a
net majority in tho city for Hicks and
Caldwell of 300.

good judges as much nearer telling the re?

and the speaker of the eveniag, Hon. A.

candidate for attorney general, held the
close attention of his audience for nearly
two hours. Ho went into a discussion of
State issues and "pointed with pride to
the splendid achievements of the Demo?
cratic party in State affairs, and as to na?
tional issues his speech was clear cut,
concise and to the point, "loquent and
convincing. It is thcught by many to be
the greatest speech of the campaign, and
will doubtless be of much benefit to the
tiarty vote. This was Mr. Montague's
^rst appearance before a Roanoke audi?
ence and our people are no doubt well
pleased with the next atto-ney general of
the State. He was liberally cheered and

LT. NOVEMBER 2,
Outward Sips Seem to Point to
the Election of Low.
SOME INTERESTING FIGURES?SE?
CRET UNDERSTANDING SAID TO
EXIST BETWEEN PLATT AND
CROKER MAY RESULT IN THE
ELECTION OF VAN WYCK?SOME
OF THE MISTAKES MADE BY
New York, Nov. 1.?Based upon the
amount of patronage at stake aod the gi?
gantic character of the machine to be put
into operation by the first engineer at the
lever, the municipal electiou in Greater
Now York dims everything else in the
country to-day. It hi?R been a contest
characterized on the part of some 'of the
men in charge by an exhibition of the
most Implacable hatred. The conditions
ar- so unusual and tho temper of the peo?
ple so uncertain that it is difficult, if not
impossible, to make a prediction'that
will approximate tho result of to-mor?
row's vote, it may be said, however, that
the outward signs point to the election of
Seth Low, the candidate of the Citizens'
Union party. Seth Low and the late
Henry George represented the same great
ideal?opposition to.bosstsin, a .political
condition that has grown to monstrous
proportions iu New York city during the
past twenty years. How much of the
vote of George will go to Low is an un?
known factor in the campaign.
For days it has been admitted?even
when Hjcnry George was delivering his
sledge-hammer blows ..t the comnicu eu
ethy?that, the contest here is between
Vau Wyck and Low. Tracy tloes not ap?
pear at any time to have been a close
second iu the race, antl while it is not ap?
parent that Henry George was drawlug
the masses about lilni iu .sufficient num?
ber to secure his elect'on, he was fast
disintegrating .the ranks ot Tammany
and filling the heart of Boss Croker with
Impenetrable gloom land despondency.
There is but one way, seemingly,through
which victory can be ma.le 'to perch once
more upon the Tammany banner, and
that depends for success upon the ability
of Boss Platt to deliver into the toils ol
Croker the honest manhood >f the Repub?
licans of New York.
There has long been an understanding
between Platt and Croker. Each ot these
men are bosses of tho most vicious char?
acter. Croker wsnts tho city and Jf in
order to gain it he has to pledgo to Platfc
the State, he will not hesitate to carry
out the compact. If this compact has
been entereel int< then Van Wyck may
pnll through. By such a deal Platt may
still save the State, which seems to be
slipping from him, and Croker may wrest
victory from the very jaws of defeat. But
the heat of the campaign has been so
great and the passions of the voters so
worked upon that it is doubtful if Platt
could deliver to Croker the goo<'s essen?
tial to tiie binding of such a bargain.
Au analysis of recent votes in New
Yorx would seem to point to the success
of Seth Low, despite the terrific odds
against which he has been fighting. Iu
IHll? Cleveland received in the present
area of Greater New York 204,870 rotes
and Harrison 181,813. In 18110 Bryan
received 225,0)13 aud McKinley 283,1111.
In the election of last year there were
0,005 votes cast for Palmer and Buckner:
14,170 for the socialist ticket, nnd 1,378
for tho prohibitionists. These figures
show that in 18?? nearly 70,COO voters
who voted for Cleveland refused to vote
for Bryan. They also show that McKin?
ley succeeded in getting over 101,000 more
votes than were given to Harrison. It
caanot by any possibility be claimed t hat
this increase was the legitimate Republi?
can increase. Add tho 10,000 "sound
money" Democrats vote to McKinley's
and he has an increase over four years ago
of 111,000, The only satisfactory answer
to the question, "Where did these votes
come fioni?" Is to say they represented
the independent vote, Democratic votes,
?'sound money" votes, an aggregation of
votes that declined to indorse tho Chi?
cago platform and which could not if
consistent indorse the views of and vote
for Henry George.
It would stem, therefore, that these
were votes cast, for the principle repre?
sented in this wonderful canvass by Seth
Low and that he of all the nieti in the
race should fall heir to them. It 's not
unfair to assume that Mr. Low will re?
ceive a l'neral percentage of the vote that
sloughed away from the regular Demo?
crat ic ticket last year, and to this per?
centage must be added that percentage of
the Republican "Ote of New York city
represented In the element antagonizing
the machine ticket, an "element of such
magnitude as to command the respect of
even Mr. Platt.

A letter .from J nneau, Alaska, says: In
the same mall in which this letter goes
there will go to Attorney General Mc
Keunn at Washington waruiug of a wild?
cat filibustering scheme.???hich lor oaring
can be likened only to Jameson's raid on
the Transvaal. It is nothing less than a
plan to seize Dawson City in the name of
America and opeu up the reserved claims
lor immediate oporaticn. The story conies
here from United States Commissioner
J. X. Suiith, at Dyea, and It has general
belief at that place. The United States
marshal has cousid?red it ot sutVtcient
Importance to notify the Washington au?
tln ritits at once.
Jones, of Port Townaeud, the newspa?
per man who was the first man appointed
United Spates commissioner at St. Mich?
ael's, and J. J. Kutledge, the United
States deputy tiiatshal at Circle City, are
said to De the chief filibusters. Jones
did not get to St. Michael's at once on his
appointment, and it whs said that he had
resigned. Jo. Sheppard, of .Nebraska,
was appointed iu his place. Both Jones
and Kutledge hre venturesome fellows,
quite capable of conceiving and trying
to carry out such a scheme.
According to the story Jones nnd Rut
ledge figure it this way: They mean to
decline that the Klondike gold fields are
lu tho United States territory, taking ad?
vantage for that purpose of tho fact that
the boundary line has not been definitely
declared, although they know as well as
anybody else that the disputed part of tho
boundary line does not affect that, terri?
tory. There are about 5,000 miners in
the Klondike region, and nearly all are
American citizeus. They are ve-y indig?
nant at what they cousider the oppression
and unjust exactions of the Canadian
mining laws, under which they ate com?
pelled t.? pay a heavy royalty, and the
si2'o of their claims are reduced very
greatly. Particularly are they wroughc
up over the reservation of each alternate
claim for the crown.
It is alleged that Jones and Rutledge
propose after all communication -is cut
oil for the winter, to go to Dawson and
formally hoist the Stars and Stripes, de?
claring that all the fields are ou Ameii
ciiti soil aud therefore open for entry.
They rely on the heavy support of the
5,600 American miners to overawe the
few British mounted police, and to defeat,
them if It omes to a question of fight?
ing. They mean to declare martial law
with themselves as commanders and
their gum.' i.f filibusters as ollicinis, and
no one will be allowed to leave for tne
coast. II by chance anyone does get away
they argue it will bo impossible for either
government to get troops into the Klon?
dike before next May or Juue. In the
meantime all the claims now reserved for
the crown will be located and workeil to
their full capacity.
In this way millions of dollars'worth of
dust will bo taken out and secured before
either governnent can raise a baud to
prevent it. It is insisted that no harm
can come to anyone, inasmuch as tho real
boundary line is Indlsputo nnd unknown
and that American citizens have the same
right to say that the gold fields belong to
America and to establish our claim theie
as*the British. Jones and RutUdge fig?
ure that the gratetul miners will put up
dust enough to make them a very hand?
some reward for their trouble anil lisk.
It is impossible to learn here what the
terriorial officers will do.or whether they
will try to do anything. Tho story has
not general circulation here.
