fly i:( lu-ive Wite Innit The Aoi i.itp.l l'iei,
I'liiladelphia, Xov. -I. 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

Ohio Campaign.
Columbus, O,, Xov, 1,-State olilcers
and members nf the legislature will be
elected In Ohio tomorrow. 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

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. Hanna for senator,
the success of Ihu hitter by one vote
was up exception to (lie rule, and It
was Kald'the Inlluenco of the national
I
ndnilnlstratltm then overcame, the Mate
administration, if elected tomorrow,
lioveriiof Nash will he In power aevernt
mouths titter the election at which
members of the legislature arc elected
to choose a successor to Senator llitniui.
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.
Chairman McChord, of the Demo
cratic state campaign committee, lo
nieht gave out a statement in which
he claims the Denioerats will have u'
to :.',. of the :N members of the senate
iu the next general asesmhly mid from

will elect a United States s-vn:itor, to

ask the people of this country to bear
even greater burdens and to make even
creator sacrifices'."

LONDON IN A FOG.
Its Like Has Not Been Experienced
in Many Years in England.
Business Suspended.
lly i:iluiive Wire fioin The Aor.l.itfd I'icss.
Loudon, Nov. ). A fog such as Great
Rrittiln Intel not experienced for years
enveloped London and half of tho Uni
ted Kingdom today, blockading ship
ping, deranging railways and throwing
business iu London, Rlrmlnglitim and
other provincial cities into confusion.
So dense was it that a walk into the
streets was an adventure. The fog
descended upon the metropolis and the
suburbs so thickly that between four
and live o'clock hi the afternoon the.
principal avenues, of ten flic resembled
thu .steam room nf a Turkish bath.
Hundreds of thousands of London's
mi I) urban population vainly endeavored
to groupc their way to the railway .sta
tions. Tlie few who succeeded found
the trains all stalled.
Around Trafalgar Siiuure and the
houses of parliament scenes unparal
leled for years were witnessed. Hun
dreds of omnibuses, cabs, carts and
wagons formed an inextricable and Im
movable mass. The mounted police in
trying to clear away tlie jMin, set lost
iliemselvOs. Aluny vehicle.1, -mere iu
collision. Tlie drivers not knowing
where they were stood at the heads of
their horses patiently waiting the lift
ing of tlie premature darkness. Lan
terns were at a premium, newsboys
transferred their papers, into tempo
rary inches, highwayman pursued
their vocation, casualties were fre
uuenl and even burdened Londoners
freely expressed a dread of Hie contin
uation of such fogs as today reached a
climax.
if the fog had not lifted somewhat
toward night London would have been
so congested that its housing resources
commodious as they were, would have
been taxed beyond their limits hy the
forced accommodation of the fog
bound suburbanites. Among children
and old people the deleterious effects
of si:-'h a continuous and exceptional
fog can scarcely be estimated.

wreck at Cyulmont, Del., which mtulo
it. necessary to shift the train to the
T.altlmore and Ohio tracks, whence it
ran as far as West Philadelphia. Af
the train lay in the yards there for
some minutes the president slopped to
thu platform and smilingly greeted a,
group of railroad employes, who
climbed on the platform and shook
hands with hhn. Ho told them that ho
was filailno see their interest in- poli
tics as evidenced hjt' the municipal cam
paign buttons they wore.
AVhen the train pulled into the Jer
sey City depot a big- crowd hud gath
ered and 11 number of secret service
men, detectives and newspaper men
followed the party to Hie ferry boat,
where carriages were waiting. Arrived
at New York the president and party
were driven to the residence ut the
president's aunt, Airs. James II. Roose
velt. The president will take a. ferry e.trly
tomorrow morning for Long Islnid

velt, went Iu a. closed automobile to
tlie Century club, where ten or a doxen
personal friends gave him an Informal
reception. No list, of those present was
given out, but It is known Prof. Nic
holas Murray Butler and Prof. Brainier
Aliitthews were among them. After
this President Roosevelt returned to his
