V. W. MILLER, Chairman Democratic County Central Com. The above statements were given out last nignt by the chairmen of the republican and democratic county central committee. While there has been' a fierce 'fight wag ered by the democrats on the republican nominees for treasurer and sheriff, every thing yesterday Indicated a sweeping vic tory .for the entire republican ticket. Re ports from all over the county indicate thai Brooks Reed, the democratic candidate for! treasurer, will be beaten by at least SX) votes and If the full vote is gotten out by considerably more. '."Jlmmfe" O'Nell, the aged candidate on the democratic ticket for sheriff. It Is generally conceded1, will full at least 1.000 votes behind Edward Canning, the republican nominee. Commits Political Suicide. The attempt of Brooks Reed, the demo cratic candidate .for county treasurer, to Inject the Eagles' and Elks lodges Into the political arena In his support, his friends all say, must prove "his undoing. - In nj pre vious campaign In this city has any mem ber of any fraternal organization adopted the course that Reed has and a prominent member of the dcmocrallo party yesterday, expressed the opinion that as far as he could figure It out from the sentiment ex pressed by the members of these two o:--' ganlaatlons "Reed has cut his own throat." Edward Canning, th republican nominee for sheriff, his friends estimated last night, .will be elected by at least 1,000 majority over "Jlmmle" O'Nell, the aged nominee of the democratic party. Reports from all precincts In the county indicate that these figures may be even Increased, as 'the dem ocrats throughout the eounty generally are of the opinion that O'Nell has passed that age when he should seek public office, much less an office with such strenuous duties at tached to it as that of sheriff. 1 U O. Conalgney. the republican candi date for county tressurer, has not been a perennial offlceiieeker like 'his opponent. Brooks Reed,.and this la the first time that he has asked the suffrage of the voters of this countjr. On the other hand. Brooks Reed has for many years In the part fed from the publio pap and It Is doubtful It an election h(ks passed since he was retired from office that he has not made an effort to break In again. He has been defeated time and tlmfi again, bnt he bobs up ssati. The last democratic convention Inveighed against the third-termer, but falling an other candidate for the office nominated Brooks Reed the . veteran officeholder and seeker. The. same is, .true of "Jlmmle" O'Nell, the democratic candidate Jfor sheriff, and those who profess to be on the Inside ay that O'Nell's nomination was due to the fact that It was known he would be .willing to provide the sinews of the cam paign for the democratic county central committee In return for the nomination. O'Nell la the' only candidate on the demo cratic ticket who has money 'to' spend and, In the parlance of the stage folk, he has acted the, "angel." ' MeMnnae Haa Experience. County Superintendent McManus, who ts seeking a re-election on the republican ticket, has during the tenure fit his office proven hlmsolf one of the foremost edu cators of thelstate and his ability as such has been recognised In Ms appointment as a member of 'the State Examining board. Against Superintendent' McManus the dem ocrats have as their candidate W. 1 Ran kin, a young man who la beginning his career as an educator) as a teacher In the schools of the town of Carson. Dr. V. X Treynor, the republican nomi nee for coroner, is a candidate for an office which sought him and which he did not seek. Dr. Treynor Is not a candidate In the accepted meaning of the word. At 'no time haa he ' sought the office; the ' office so far as the. republican party of this county is concerned, has sought him. Dur ing Dr. Treynor's tenure of the office the county has been saved hundreds of dollars and the records of the office of the county auditor will prove to any ono Interested that the expenses of the coroner during Dr. Treynor's Incumbency have been sev eral hundred dollars less each year than ever before In the history of Pottawattamie county. , ". It la, generally conceded that Thomas Toatevtn, the republican, candidate for county surveyor, ' Is the most competent man for the place. Mis experience as a civil engineer, -specialty In Pottawattamie oounty, tits him for the position probably more than any other man who' could be named.

The republican nominees for the County Board of Supervisors are: Allen J. Bullls, who seeks re-election, and George YJ Spen cer. The former In his short career on the board has shown himself an able and conservative administrator of the' county's affairs, while Mr. Spencer, who Is one of the foremost cltlsens of Neola township, has long been recognised as one of the leading business men of his part of the county. The polls will be open this morning at T o'clock and will remain open Until i In the evening. Chairman Wright of the republican central committee Is anxious1 that every republican who can shall cast his vote as early ss possible. In this con nectlon he suggests that all voters who work In Omaha or at any. distance from their place of residence cast their ballot before going to work.

Outside of the ordinary routine buslneBi before the city council at Its monthly ses sion last night was the question of requir ing the electric, lights telegraph and motor companies to place their wires underground In the business section of the city. This matter when before the council before had been referred to a committee, of which Alderman ,Lbvett was chairman; and the subject .was brought up for discussion on his report. ., " , Alderman I.ovett stated that the etectrlo light company' proposed fe- place its .wires In the central part of the city underground next year, but that- It was not practicable for the street railway company to do 'so. The Western ...Union Telegraph company, Mr. Lovett said,, had advised -him that in stead of placing Kb wires underground It proposed In the near future to replace its sixty or more wires with not more than three cables In the business section of the city. This, Mr. Lovett suggested, would ob viate the necessity of the company placing Its wires In underground conduits at least tor several years to come. The Postal com pany, he said, had recently Installed prac tically a new system of wires in this city and was not prepared at this time to make any extensive alterations. .While the matter was dlseussed.-at length the jt-ouncH took nonaction, in ;thenmJtr I beyond accepting the. report of the commit- tee, and It is understood that the matter will be allowed to rest, at least for- some time to, come. -t . , . i i i. i Another rrtatt'er whlcfr Invoked consider able discussion was the need of street cros sings In many parts of the city. Alderman Huber stood out for brick crossings, but after the matter had been thoroughly dis cussed it was decided to authorise the com mittee on streets and alleys to construct 100 plank crossings In the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth wards, as being the portions of the city most In need of them. The liberality of the city counell In au thorising the construction of the crossings prompted Alderman Casper, chairman of the committee on bridges, to suggest that If he had the authority he would like to put In a number of culverts In those -parts' of the city which needed draining.. The matter was referred to the city solicitor and If he gives it as his opinion that the committee of which Casper Is chairman can go ahesd and construct the culverts without special authority , ss to each separate culvert, as many culverts as the committee deems necessary are to be put In.

Not only did the club endorse the ticket, but the members Individually expressed their In tention of working; for' its success at the polls today.' This action on the part of the oiub Is a complete refutation of a certain democratic organ that the Scandinavians of this city had decided to support the demo cratic candidates, especially those for treasurer and sheriff. This misleading state ment, which It Is said emanated from the headquarters of the democratic county cen tral committee without any warrant, proved most displeasing t U Scandinavian com munity and the action of the club last night entirely refutes It Residence for Presiding Elder. The Methodists of ' Council Bluffs are planning to build a residence In this city as the permanent home for the presiding elder of the district. It Is estimated that a fund of about $10,000 wilt be rcquh-ed and tke matter Is in the hands of a committee consisting- of Presiding Elder Griffith. Rev. A. E. Euriff. Rev. W. J. Stratton, Rev. M.

President Stlckney and his party of Min nesota capitalists, on their arrival In this city yesterday morning were entertained at breakfast at the Grand hotel by the directors of the Commercial club and a number ot leading professional and busi ness tnen of the city. After the. menu had been disposed of President Bender of the Commercial club, In a few well chosen words bid the visitors welcome to Council Bluffs and Introduced Emmet Tlnley, State Senator C. Q. Saunders and Congressman Smith. Mr. Tlnley referred to the necessity for a change In the method of assessment of railroads and urged that railroad com panies should join In urging the passage of a law by the next legislature taxing railway terminals, at least at the places where they are located. Colonel Saunders spoke of the advantages of Council Bluffs as a shipping center. Congressman Smith recalled the Incident that Abraham Lincoln, long before his nomination for president, came here to lo cate a claim under a Black Hawk Indian war warrant, that he stood on the bluffs overlooking this city and subsequently, when he as president had to locate the eastern terminus of the Union Paclilo placed It In Council Bluffs. President Stlckney made a short address, In which he said that Council Bluffs and Omaha were practically one shipping cen ter and that there should be no reason why they should not become one of the great grain markets of the United. States. Owing to the heavy downpour of rain the drive sbout the city ,had to be aban doned and Instead the visitors were ten dered an lnVonnal reception at the Elks' clubhouse. At 11:30 o'clock the visitors, accompanied by the members of the. executive commit tee of the Commercial club, boarded a spe cial motor and after a trip to Sixteenth avenue and around . the loop on Pierce street crossed the river to Omaha.

LOCAL CONTESTS IN MANY SECTIONS Flsnree for Comparison on the l.eajla. latere Irrearolar Ca,t-sa Are lees In Maay Parts ot the State This Year. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DE8 MOINES, Nov. I. (Special.)--While there is more or leas of academic discus, slon of the else of the republican majority for the head of the ticket on Tuesday and the guessing Is greatly varied In character, the c'.osest figuring Is done on the legisla tive tickets. Everyone recognises that the result at this time may have an Important bearing on the senatorial contests of the future, and In fact this Is one source of some of the factional feeling that has broken out In the state the last few weeks. The democrats hope to gain a number ot seats In the legislature, and their hopes have been somewhat encouraged by the covert attacks of republicans, embittered by factional 111 will. It Is "no secret that in many , parts of . the state there are re publicans who have heretofore stood high In the councils of the party who' are now giving no real support to the ticket In one way or anotlier they have given encourage, mejit to the democrats. That this may have the effect of reducing the majority for the republican state ticket will be ac knowledged by all. But It will also have some effect on the legislative districts. The democrats have ten seats In ths senate now and seventeen In the house. They will keep three In the senate by the holdovers and In the house they have a sure thing ot perhaps a half dozen. The fighting ground is confined to about a doxen senatorial dis tricts and twice aa many house districts. It is in this list that the interest now cen ters. Below will be found a statement of the doubtful column, or where there have been contests of a nature to arouse unusual interest, with the vote in these districts cast tor Cummins and Phillips two years ago. But Inasmuch aa the vote ot two years ago was an abnormal one for Gov ernor Cummins on account of his great personal popularity and the failure of his opponent to put up any campaign, these figures make a much better showing for the republicans than any other figures that might be selected. But the comparison will be mado with the vote on governor two years ago and' the interesting districts are as follows: Senatorial Districts. Appanoose-Davis James li.

Ia., Nov.
