in Ohio-. Prospects in Dolnivarc
mill Other Stiitcn.
New York, Nov. 2. There were hut
few callers today at Republican na
lional headquarters. The work of the
campaign, however, is still being push
ed and will be up to the last moment.
The members of the'executive com
mittee who will remain at headquarters
to receive the flection returns are Jo
seph II. Manley, N. B. Scott. General
1'owell Clayton and General McKlnley
Osborne. They were all at their desks
today busy receiving reports from all
over the country. The reports were all
satisfactory and McKlnley's election Is
regarded as certain. Sir. Manley smiled
today when he was asked by a reporter
of the I'nlted Associated Presses If he
had anything to say on the situation.
"We have the battle already won. and
It Is only a question of the size of Me
Kinley's majority." said Sir. Manley.
OHIO 100.000 FOR MKINLKY.
Columbus, O.. Nov. 2. Chairman Car
en. of the national Democratic stnte
committee, and Chairman McConville.
of the Democratic state committee, will
give no estimate of the election result
in the sate. Chairman Kurtz, of the
Republican committee, lets his state
ment of Saturday nighl. in which he
claimed the stale for McKlnley by from
li.'UMI to Illll.lldO. stand unamended
Lending Republicans here are Inclined
to regard tills claim as too high, but all
think the state is sure. The letting
seems to support this, as the odds are
lo to 1 In McKinley' favor on the state.
The Republican have much the bet
ter organization, in fact, it was per
fect, and Chairman Kurtz Is inclined
to accept the statements of his local
committeemen rather than reports
from casual observers to the effect tliul
there are big Republican defections to
free silver among the farmer and
DKI.AWAP.K IS 8AFK.
Wilmington, Del., Nov. 2. The po
litical situation in Delaware remains
unchanged since Saturday. Signs of
growing interest, however, are visible,
on every side and the voters are await
ing the result anxiously. Democrats in
a position to know, admit that the
signs point to a majority for McKlnley
and Hoburl In the state, and no esti
mates go below l.ftliO. It is believed
that the entire Republican vote will
be cast for Republican electors.
The result as to who will be elected
congressman cannot be forecasted,
there belnj? four candidates in the field.
Austin. Texas, Nov. 2. The cani
aign closed tn-nlsht with every Indi
cation of rain to-morrow. Notwith
standing Chairman Hlnke, of the Bryan
and Senall committee, is clalmlnc the
Slate by jr.o.ooo lurality over McKln
ley, silver leaders here say it will not
exceed 25.0110. Blake places his estimate
on a totnl vote of ."uo.ooo. of which he
gives .McKlnley only 125,000; Bryan and
Sevall. 275.000; Bryan and Wntnin,
lio.oiio. and Palmer and Buckner. lO.eou.
In this city and county at lenst 60 per
cent of the Populists will vote for Mc
Kinley. and their leaders claim fifty
per cent of their party in Texas will
vote for him. If this be true, out of
n total vote of 4fi0,0u0 they claim Mc
Klnley will receive from Republicans,
Populists and Sound Money Democrats
105.000; Bryan and Sew all. ISO.000;
Bryan nnd Watson, 65.000; Palmer and
Buckner. 1C.0O0; Levering, lO.OtHI. For
Congress It looks like Crawford, Sound
Money Democrat In the Forty-eighth
disirist; Oibbs, Populist, In the Sixth:
Pope, Rep., In the Seventh, and
Noonan, Rep., In the Twelfth district,
will be elected.
Memphis, Tenn.. Nov. 2. The Re
publicans have raised the estimate of
their majority from 12.00(1 to 20.000.
Kveiy indication points to u heavy
vote all over the State, with a strong
probability that the negro will be
unable to handle the massive ballot.
Seattle, Wash.. Nov. 2. Republican
leaders claim the State for McKln
ley. Hn the other hand, an Impartial
forecast indicate! victory for Bryan
and the free silver congresisonul can
didates. Fargo, N. 1., Nov. 2. The managers
of Cue Populists and Democratic parties
ure not as enthusiastic over the ap
proaching election as they were ten
days ago. and late this afternoon the
majority of 5.i)0 which they cicamed
n few days ago has been reduced to
2.5UO. A conservative estimate of the
situation gives the Republican na
tional ticket about 2.500 majority.
Portland. Oregon. Nov. 2. Belting is
3 to 1 n McKlnley in the State. Both
Republicans and Fusionlsls are confi
dent of victory, but the result will un
doubtedly be very close.
lies Moines, Iowa, Nov. 2. Latest
claims from Republican headquarters
are that the State will go 75,000 plurality
or about 65.AOO majority for McKlnley.
The Democrats and Populists who have
fused claim the State for Brvan by
from 15.000 to 25.(lo0.
Lincoln, Nov. 2. Kliminntinir the
effect of Bryan's trip through Nebraska
to-day. which none deny has been a
factor in his benefit, the political trend
of the State for the past thirty-six
hours has been favorable to the Re
publicans. The vole will be close In
any event, and It is questionable If thu
result even on head of ticket will be
definitely known before Thursday.
M' KINLEY'S LAST ADDRESS.
He Talks to His Neighbors, lint Dr
dines to Make Other Hneechen.
Canton, Nov. 2. Two delegations
called on Major McKlnley today. The
fii-st was composed of 350 ladies from
Akron, Ohio, and the other came from

thanked the visitor)) for the call. Aside
from these delegations Major McKinley
was kept busy greetinif callers from
early in the morning until long after

ton closed with a parade of all the Re
publican marching clubs of the city

MAJOR M'KINLEY'S SPEECH.
Major McKlnley stepped out to the
front of his yard and In response to loud
calls for a speech tbe candidate ad
dressed his neighbors as follows:
I appreciate very ureatly the call of my
neighbors and fellow townsmen, at this,
the closing hour of one of the most mem
orable ami important political campaigns
in American history. The hour for dis
cussion has pussed by; the argument is
closed. The vunt InluresU of the Ameri

people themselves for proper settlement
and determination and there Is no safer

Interests and Amerlean honor than ill
American people themselves. (Cries of

Air. iianna Has Nothing to Add to His
Former PredictionsExtra Pre
cautions at the Polls.
Chicago. Nov. 2. Mr. Ilanntt has
nothing new to add to Ills predictions
when he took the night train for his
home in Cleveland. After voting he will
go to Canton tomorrow and return in

Kxtru precautions huve been taken
by the police department of this city to
secure a fair election nnd equal rights
to all Voters who come to the polls. The
depart merit Is determined to close ev
ery saloon in the city.
Senator .tones received a telegram
from ltuliannimlls claiming Uiat Indi
ana would give Bryan 15.IHH) plurality.
Another telegram came to him from S.
W. Bedford, of Lacrosse, alleging that
the sii!:'rinioiidcnts of Wisconsin rail
roads were changing the runs of em
ployes si' that Bryan men could not get
lime to Vote.
The sliver forces In this city have ar
ranged an election day surprise for
their opponents. The law gives to each
candidate on the ballot the right to hav
a representative in each polling (dace
when the count of the ballot begins, but
It has been customary for a few repre
sentatives of each party only to he pres
ent to watch the count nnd take cog
nizance of any dispute over ballots be
tween the judges. The silver people,
however, have nutde secret arrange
ments for thirty men to lie at each p ll
leg nlace when tile count begins, one
for each candidate, which means an
army of 27,0iui men. there being over HiiO
voting precincts in the city. The Re
publicans have arranged for only the
usual number of watchers. The 27.000
silverltos are expected to have a dis
turbing effect on the count and jeop
ardize the ipcnce of the polling places.
On the other hand, the Republicatls,
who have control of the municipal gov
ernment, have arranged with the fire
department to have streams of water
turned on any obstreperous mob which
may threaten any polling place.

a valise full or ollieiul ballots. I under

been made already. It would be well for

! St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 2. The various
I campaign committees completed their
work today and gave out their tlnal
estimates of the vote in Minnesota.
i Chairman Rosing, of the Democratic,
1 commit lee said:
"We will carry the state without a
I doubt. The change of sentiment to

, has been something remarkable. We
will get at least 25,000 majority for

, gressmen and the others will be In

CONFIDENT IN MISSOCRI.
St." iiuis. Nov. 2. Never before hns
Missouri been so thoroughly canvassed
and cp.moaigned. The registration Is
1 the highest ever known and the vote
i will certainly pass all records. The
; Republicans have fought hard and ag
: gressively and their claim of a oomlng
victory is not campaign bravado, but
Is born of confidence. The Democrats,
i aroused from apathy by the vigorous
! front of their opponents, have set their
squadrons in every school district and
! fetd assured of victory. The Republl
' cans are strongly abetted by the Pal
' mor and Buckner Democrats, while
Brvan will receive the united support
i of the Populists and the straight Dem-
ocrats. The only development today
was charges nnd counter-charges by
both pnrties of Intended fraud.
Chairman C. I. Filler, for the Re
publicans, this evening offered $500 re
ward for the conviction of any one in-
I tlinidating a voter or committing a

than claimed by the fusion people.

Advantage of Elect inn Itesnlt.
New York. Nov. 2. An enterprising

nounced that they have engaged a tem
Imrary office at 10 East Twenty-third

tomers to take full and earliest ad
vantage of the result of the election. In
their circular the firm says:
"We shall be in close communication
wdth I.ondon. As soon as the returns
will warrant we shall be prepared to
make purchases and sales of stocks on
the London exchanges Immediately up
on Its opening. This will place our cus
tomers in a position to buy or sell in
this market and when the New York
market opens they can sell or buy to
cover their London transactions, as the
case may be. By three o'clock In tne
morning (in time for the opening of the
London exchange) It Is expected there
will be enough evidence to warrant
either purchases or sales In that market
on the result of the election."

lark, probably succeeded in getting
themselves In a serious scrape this
morning about 2.10 o'clock by tearing
down and trampling on a large Ameri

F. Taylor's place on Jackson street.
Hut few people were on the street at
the time, but those few made It very
lively for the miscreants and what
threatened to be a small Hot took place.
The guilty parties broke away and dls
apepared. Their names are known and
they will be arrested by the police some

ON THE NIGHT
BEFORE THE BATTLE
South Side Ablate with Enthusiasm for
the Republican Candidates.
MANY MASS MEETINGS WERE HELD
Addresses Were Made by William
Council, Colonol E II. Ripple, A.
J. Colborn, R. A. Zimmerman, John
M. Harris, II. C. Reynolds, C. P.
O'Mnlley, George M. Watson, Cans.
E. Olvcr, J. II. Torrey and Other.
Democrats Held Demonstration
in the Armory.
From one end to the other of the
South Side last night the spirit of en
thusiasm was prevalent, foreshadow
ing from that section of the city to-day
a majority larger than any yet record
ed for the Republican ticket. The sen
timent in favor of the candidacy of
William Connell wus so pronounced
that unless all signs fail he will receive
an overwhelming vote.
Such a demonstration of Interest In
the principles and candidates of the
Republican party from a section that
has gained the title, "Solid South" from
the majorities rolled up for the Demo
cracy is a most reassuring Indication
of a triumphant victory for sound
money, protection and prosperity.
Rallies were held In various halls.
At Natter's hall, on Alder street, the
place was filled to the doors. John F.
Scheurer was chairman. Addresses
were delivered by Attorneys A. J. Col
born and R. A. Zimmerman, and a
short address was made by William
Connell. Each of the other speakers
in referring to the local ticket was
cheered and applauded vigorously
when Mr. Connell's name was mention
ed. At Worklngmen's hall Jncob Miller
was chairman. The Ringgold band
paraded the streets between 7 and S
o'clock, and wound up at this hall, and
attracted such a crowd that If it was
twice as Inrge It could not accommo
date all that tried to get In. There
was nearly as large a crowd outside as
there was in.
ATTORNEY REYNOLDS SPEAKS.
Attorney H. C. Reynolds was the first
speaker here, and he talked generally
on the Issues of the campaign, appeal
ing to the voters to use good, sober
judgment In casting their ballots to
day. When Mr. Reynolds got through
speaking there was a strong demand
for Colonel E. H. Ripple. Colonel Ripple
responded, and expressed his thanks
for the kindly consideration shown.
He said that Mr. Connell should be
given hearty support on the South Side
for all he hns done to build it up. I
Mr. Connell spoke next, and was
greeted with a rousing cheer. He said
he feels great pride in the South Side'
from the fact that he has been identi
fied ho closely with Its Interests. He
resented the Insinuation that any of
his workmen are coerced into voting,
lie has too much respect for the Ameri
can cltien for that.
Mr. Connell stated his position llk
this: "I want you all to vote for me,
but at the same time I do not want any
man's vote If he feels thnt he cannot
honestly and conscientiously give It to
me." After he got through a man In
the front row of seats arose and pro
posed three cheers for htm, which were
given with a will.
Mr. Colborn spoke at Worklngmen's
hall. too. and so did Attorney John M.
Harris. The former discussed the cur
rency question and Mr. Harris devoted
his attention more particularly to the
IN ST. JOHN'S HALL.
There was a good-sized crowd at St.
John's hall, on Stone avenue. In the
Twelfth ward. Addresses were deliv
ered there by Mr. Colborn and Mr. Con
nell. There was a parade through the
Twelfth In the Interest of the candi
dacy of Hon. Alex. T. Connell alone and
that brought many away from St.
At Oermania hall there was a rally
under the auspices of the Eleventh
Ward McKinley club. Dr. A. Kolb was
chairman and addresses were delivered
by Attorneys A. J. Colborn and R. A.
In Michalowskl's hall, at the corner
of Plttston avenue and Elm street, the
Polish voters were assembled and the
large hall was crowded. Addresses were
delivered by Attorneys Oeorge M. Wat
son and Charles E. (liver. City Solicitor
J. H. Torrey and Martin Woyshner.
There was at the very least 350 men
present and every one of them Is an en
thusiastic Republican. There was an
other Polish meeting in session at Hug
no's hall, on Prospect avenue. This was
a club meeting and consisted more es
pecially of the younger element. They
decided not only to vote the straight
Republican ticket, but every man of
them to get out and hustle.
The Polish voters are particularly In-,
terested In the candidacy of William
Connell and they were demonstrative in
their applause when his name was men
tioned. They were not lacking in be
stowing their applause on the mention
of the other candidates on tho local
ticket, and testified their readiness to
go to the polls today and vote the Re
publican ticket from top to bottom.
MANY DEMOCRATS PRESENT.
The feature of the rally In Phillips'
hall on Fiir street was the presence at
It of a lnrge number of men who have
heretofore voted the Democratic ticket.
Thomas Itiilliths. president of the
Colonel E. H. Ripple club of the Twen
tieth ward, was chairman of the meet
ing. He fint introduced Attorney John
M. Harris. Mr. Harris sooke of the
effect of the election on the win king
man nnd how it Is to his Interest to
support the party which protects
American industries. He spoke of each
of the local candidates in a laudatory
Etyle and urged his hearers to vote the
straight' Republican ticket. Attorney
M. W. Lowry held their attention with
a brief address on the issues of the day.
At Central Park ball the last but not
the least of the rallies was held and ns
at Phillips' hall there was a large gath
ering of Democrats. Frank Mueller
was chairman and the sneakers were
Hon. C. P. O Malley. City Solicitor Tor
rey and Attorney Oeorge M. Watson.
The hall wns packed and the enthus
iasm corresponded with the numbers.
All in all the eve of election on the
South Side was highly gratifying from
a Republican point of view.
GATHERING IN THE ARMORY.
Democrats Addressed by Merrilield,
I'itzsinimons nnd Other.
Last night the leaders of the forlorn
and much battered Democracy en
gineered a mass meeting in the Arm
ory. When the pow-wow opened the arm
ory was filled. This big crowd, judging
from what transpired, was there for
the express purpose of yelling, first,
and being enlightened on the situation
