The leaders ot both the Republican and fusion parties tonight reiterate their claim that their respective candidates will carry the slate. Chairman Keeder, of the Republican party, said tonight Unit Into advices re ceived from western and northwestern counties lead to raise his estimate. lie now says Harris and 1'ottor. the Re publican candidates, respectively for state treasurer and Supreme court jus tice, will have neater 110,000 than 100,000 majority. Chairman Creasy, of Hie Democratic state commltlee, declined to give lif,r nres, but confidently predicted the elec tion of Coray and Verltes. the fusion liindltlutcs for state treasurer and jus tice of the Supreme court. Ho said: "I can conscientiously say that Corny and Yerkes will be elected. Two-thirds of tlie counties of the state will give majorities for them." chairman Hitter, of the Union party, also claims that Corny and Yerkes will be victorious. JIc said they will come to I'liiladelphia with at least r,0,000 ma jority, and that Philadelphia may even Klve u majority for the fusion candi dates. Chairman Allies, of the Philadelphia Republican city commit tee, claims a majority of over r.0,000 for the regular Republican state ticket, and the same Hruiv for Weaver, regular Republican candidate for district attorney. Tlie Municipal league are- prcdictlnp; the election of Jlolliermel, the fusion can didate for district, attorney, l.y from 10,000 to iO.OOfl over "Weaver, and also predict 11 majority in the city for the state fusion ticket. The Struggle with Tammany. Xew York. Xov. -1. At midnight lo nlf,'ht six hours before the opening of tile polls both sides iu tlie municipal contest were claiiuins: the victory. Tlie most strenuous talk came from the fusion leaders!, who were more In evi dence at their hcaibpiarteis than wero the Democrats. Tlie leaders of the hit ler, titter the distribution of cainpaifin funds In the afternoon, having hurried to their several election precincts to give their last orders to their followers. John A. Alason, of the Shepard head quarters, said he felt confident of the result, and placed the Democratic can didate's majority at 10,000. During the late afternoon, Selh Low. the fusion candidate, at his own hoad ltuirters, said: "1 think HiliiRs could not. look nitir" rosy," and added, "this litis been u most Interesting campaign. Tlie fight is now iivr, and no matter who is elected. 1 tun sure the city will prollt by the agitation of the riucstious which have been the main issues of the cam paign." Robert '. Morris, chairman of tho Republican campaign committee, sluck to his estimate of 70,000 for Air. Low. I'M ward "W. Shepard said this even ing that he had no particular state ment to make, and nothing 10 say of the campaign beyond what ho had al ready said ami no issues to discuss any turlhor than already discussed, The Republican candidates seem l.i hnve the better of It by a simile. Late tonight wagers were laid at 10 lo 7 on Low and tlie rest of the city tklcet. There Is not the same eonlldenco on tho fusion side as to the county ticket, and IircdlctlonH are made ihat till the nn- didiitcs on the Democratic county tick, et In Xew York- county will bo elected, Willi the possible exception of Van AVyko, for the Supreme court, and Henry 1'nger, for district icttornoy, Possslbly on account of tho whirlwind campaign he has made, "William Trav el's Jerome, fusion candidate for this olllco, was getting the beuellt of ihv dlctlons that ho would run ahead of lib; ticket, but Hie betting odds favored Air.

There Is, perhaps, greater Interest In the legis hitlve contests than in tho gubernn torlal election from the fact that the legislature to be chosen tomorrow will elect a successor to Senator Joseph It, Foruker, Advices from different parts of the state tonlrsht indicate great in terest In doubtful counties for mem bers' of the leglhlature, There are no hold-over members, nil members of both brunches being chosen every two years. During the campaign Senator Kornker, who Js a candidate for re-elce. lion, and Senator Hanna have uppeareil lepeatedly on Hie same platform and co-operated with Chairman Dick for both the statu and legislative tlehets, The Main administration jms always been 11 potent I'attnr in senatorial con tests In uhlu. ll is conceded that the late John Sherman Mould have beep de feated bv Kortilu-r iu the former's last contest for the seiuKorshlp but rm. t)0 assistance of William AloKiulev, who was then jjoyeruor, in like manner, (iovernur Hoadley supported Senator i'ayiie, Governor Campbell supported Senator Hrleo and (iovernur llushuell supported Senator Kornker, "When Uov lienor Rushnell, during ids second term, opposed Marcus A.

It is reported that Congressman Dick, who linn been chairman of the Mtale conuninlttce for ninny yenrs, Is likely to be the Republican candidate for gover nor two years hence The vote tomor row Will be compared with that for gov ernnr two years ago, when 920,000 votes were rait, (lovernor Nash, Republican, then had 11 pltirnllty or -Iti.oOO over John R. .McLean, Democrat. Two years ago 101!, 000 votes were cast for Mayor Suni ttel At. Jones, of Toledo, non-partisan eantlltlnte, ami 1(1,000 votes for other minor candidates. Tho Jones vote of ISi'.iy will innlerlally affect the eotnpnri sons, especlallyln Cleveland und Toledo, us Jones then carried both Cuyuiiosa and l.uens counties. Roth sides tonight repent their previous claims. The betting Is at various odds on the Republicans and mostly on the size of Hie plurality. The most spirited bet ting Is 611 the legislative' results in Cuyahoga, KranUlIu and other doubt ful counties. Cold weather continues throughout the state. In Maryland. Rtilllmnre, Xov. -1, On the eve of election In this state, both parties claim to have the better of tho situation, but the leaders refuse to give any llgures. A. stale comptroller and a. clerk oC the court of appeals are the only stale ollleers to bo chosen, and most interest attaches to the election of a. legisla ture, which will choose a United Slates senator to succeed George L. AVelllnp,-. ton, 1I10 was chosen as it Republican, and whose term will expire on March U, 100J. In Baltimore city the situation is anything but clear. The Republican managers claim that they will elect tlie city ticket and will carry three legislative districts. They count upon n large Independent vote for their ticket. The Democrats say that tbele city ticket is safe and that they will win their legislative tickets In two dis tricts. The Democrats unquestionably believe that they will carry several oC the counties heretofore considered hopelessly Republican, und this belief! is largely based upon the explanation thai the new arrangement of the bal lot will disfranchise the gi eater part of the illiterate colored voters. Republi can leaders from tin; counties claim that they have succeeded in drilling their vote, and that their loss will be very small. Nobody has an yet been a,ble to fore cast the exact effect of the new ballot law, and each side' claims that tho other will suffer heaviest through! its operation, lioth sides appeared to he equally as conlldent and only thi counting ol the vote can decide be tween the rival claimants. The counting of the ballots this year will be much more tlitlleult than for merly, and it is doubtful whether llie complete returns will be in until 'Wed nesday afternoon. In Kentucky. Louisville, Ky.. Nov. 4. It appears to night that tlie special feature of the election iu Louisville tomorrow, when a mayor and full city and county and legislative tickets will be voted for, will be the attempt of the Republican:- to challenge Democratic voters whom they suspect of being illegally regis tered. The Republicans will have men at the polls at each precinct with a. list of names of persons whom the Re publicans allege are illegally registered. They declare they will challenge the vote of any person on the list who of fers to vote. The Democrats deny all charges of illegal registration and charge the Republicans with attempt ed intimidation. They deny that aii of the voters on the Republican mana gers' list can be arrested for offering to ote, and say any challenged voter can by allldavit establish his right to vote.
