LiNCOiv , Neb , Nov. 9 - [ Special to the
BPI' . ] The day has been occupied in count
ing the de.ul and Ih ing paitli ipants In tlio 10-
cent election. The bad weather and the con
dition of the toads made it Impossible foi tlio
countiy precincts in the county to report
until to day , and the llgnres published
in the BEK yestciday vaty but slightly.
Judge Maxwell will have at least 2,200 ma
jority o\ei O'Day in Lancaster county , his
vote being fully as lingo as Goveinor Thay-
cr'sajcar ago. The piohibitionoto has
shrunk away and Instead of having the bom
bastic 2,000 votcb in the county , claimed by
tholr orators , their vote w ill not excccU ( A)0 )
and is a radical falling off fiom foimer elec
tions. The dcmocititle vote was vciy light
and onc-thiid of the republican vote was not
cast. The ri turns from the country precincts
show that not over a half n vote was polled
in tlic dlflerent precincts. As closely ns the
cnnvatis wns made1 , the sc ratching on the dls-
tiict judgcship pu/lnl both sides until the
count was made. Sam M. Chapman icceives
about 2,200 majority in the county ,
notwithstanding that the democrats
voted for Hajden and had his name
pn all the tickets The contest between Field
and Sawjcr. whcio the light centered , 10-
sulted in Field carrj ing all the city wards
with a majority in the city over Sawyer of
057 , Tlio country precincts , which uro all in
butthiecgivo Ficld211miijoiitywhich | added
to his city majority , gives htm bu8 majoilty
over Sawyer In Lancaster county. Tele-
guphio rcpoits fiom Cass county leeched at
republican headquarters indicate that Field
is ahead of Sawjer in Cass county about 275 ,
nnd the latest report from Otoo county indl-
e-ated tint Saw\er bad can led that county by
II'iO. which will lea\o Fields majority in the
district ubout bOO. The fact that Mr. Sawj cr
campaigned ca an anti prohibitionist in Cass
nnd Otoo counties and tied up with the prohi-
qitlonista In this county , Is asserted by many
to bo one of the principal causes that eontub-
utcd to his defeat , and the \ oto in the city
would Indicate that thcro was a ic.ictiomny
feeling abioad from the time when Saw i or
was elected imi or. Tlio icpubllcan county
ticket has majoiitlcs in the eutiie
county innging from 1BOO for Melick , for
sheulT , to 2,500 for Kockc , for treasuier. A
great many demot'iats not Bntisficd with the

bition candidate , to offbct the withdiaw.il
of one of tlio prohibition candidates for Judge

Salter told the governor that if ho

more names down. The governor replied
"I am glad jou did not wait , for I must , in

CHICAGO , Nov. 9 ( Special Telegram to
the Hee-l The Jnte-r.fee though subdiu d ex-
cUcuicDt rrUicb has prevailed aiouud the

had It not been for the number of nowspnpel

BCCII nothing in the condition of affairs to In *
iHcoto that day after to moiiowis the on
fixed for the greatest nnd mpst scnsatlonn }
execution In the history of Cook county.
Thcro wore probably two reasons for this.
The first , and peihaps the most potent , was
thnt it was a wet day. Thcro is not nnd
never has been n greater nllajerof publld
excitement than n thoroughly wet day. II

clothes. It was w ith feelings of the gicutest
satisfaction that nil those who have the prea *
crvatlon of good oiderand quiet In their keep
Ing when they opened their ejcsthls morning
and found that the sk > was overcast and gave
promise of n tluuinighlj wet day to come.
The firemen were glad because n long diy
spell of weather lias made everything of M
combustible nature nere and inlhuumablo ,
and should any Merlons lite have biokcn out
thu dlfllelilty of subduing It and keeping It
within manageable hounds would have been
all the greater. They hall the lain as n tlio
picventntivo nnd n lira subduer as the fito-
man's best friend. The policemen , too , were
glad to sco thu rain. It lightened their duties
immensely when they saw It coming , as they
wcio sure they would lm\o no big uiimanago <
able crowd iuilioic to day to wrestle with.
As a menus of keeping the people quid iu
their homes a thoroughly wet day Is unsur
passed In its enicacy. The sheriff and the
jail oflle-Ials wcie delighted to see it , an their
experience hits taught them thnt they would
have n quiet daj nt the jail and bo left lice
fiom Urn importunity of the moibldly e-uil-
ous who keep pleading for mi opportunity to
have just one look at the amnchlsts , and in
this they weie not disappointed , for the mils
at the jail to day on the part of the publle
weio few and far between , The second e-lo-
mcnt ol thu coiiip.naUvo quiet that pio-
vailed was tin' absence of the ninjoilty
Of the immediate fi lends of the loiidcmncd
se\cn In Sptluglleld foi thu pin pose of doing
w hat they can thci o to secure e ommutallon
of the sentence for all the loiidcmncd , or , if
they find that be\\ond their power , foi as
many of them as possible. Their absence
made the piocecdiugs over at the Jtill exceed
ingly monotonmis this morning , and all the
pi isoneis had an exceedingly dull time of it.
They wi'ie not allowed out of their cells for
e\eicise. and some of them spent the fore
noon in ned , Llngg and Engelwoio invisible
the gicater poi tlon of the time , and Fleldeii
too , Hpcnt a good poi tlon of his tlmn reclining
on his cot. Spies kept a lamp bin nlng in his
cell all inouiing , though ho did not seem tn
be specially employed iu either reading or
w riting. Hu had a number of long eonci sa-
tlons with Mi. Osborne , the death watch ,
and seemed to be icstlcss and neivous. Par
sons seemed to bo in an cxticmely moody
fiamo of mind. He was niitablo and cross ,
the bitterness of his feelings appaiently in
creasing as the end appioaclies. Tlio news
paper men tried , on seer.il oe'casions , to get
him to talk to them ncioss thoi-ngc , but ho
only icturncd them haughty , unsatisfactory
replies to all theii questions. He sat strain
ing his CACS to read the newspapeis
in the dim light of his gloomy
cell , and all his acts bcwpoko a
mind dlstmbed and ill at caso.
The only member of the families o the con
demned men who guiucd admittance to the
jail tills moi niiig was Mrs. Engel. Sheriff
Matson was around the jail as usual thin
morning , but ho is slow to make any of his
arrangements for the execution public , his
reason for this being toa\old the legibility
of any intcrfeinnco with them bofoio they
can bocairled Into effect. The unanimous
opinion around the jail which amounts almost
to moral icrtnmty to day , Is that therowlll
be lUo executions Fi iuuj' , KS'l that till ? Ben-
tences of Ticlden and Schwab will be cmri-
mutcd. Should this turn out to bo true the
expectation is that Shei iff Matson will bo
notilied of the go\ernor's intention in the
mattei bofoio nnjliodj else , and it is thought
that the go\ei 1101 maj take thu precaution of
sending a special messenger to him , as soon
as Iio ari'u'cs at hj dyiision. Should ho
receive notice to day that the sentence of any
of the men has been commuted , it Is believed
he will at once , and as quietly as inn be , hns-
them off tothopinitentiaiy. His Just possible
that some of them may llnd theinsehcs them
before to monow moiniiig hm ht at least ,
isthooutsldo talk. Thoihtiiff himself has
avoided gh ing any eluo to his on intentions
in the matter.
In the meiutlme thn pi Isonei s are guai deil
with the closest sci utiuv. Thuwatcli at their
cells has been licblcd , and none of the other
jirisoncis in the Jail aio allowed near their
colls. When Osboino , the death watch , wtm
icleased at noon to day ho talked to the 10-
poiteisof his expoiicncowith thotondi mind
men Ho said Spies was cntcitaining a stiong
hope in icgard to the commutation of his
sentence , but is perfcc tly calm and unmoved
in view of death. Ho considers liimsulf a
second John Biown and ajs ho icpicscnts a
jinnciplo for which ho in perfectly willing
that he should bo baciitlccd. Schwab , ho
said , was veiy gloomy and depressed to-day.
Ho had been full of foieboding all night , and
tl dcpicsslon of spa its hung over him all
foienoon to-day. Later , however , he seemed
to bo lallying n little and was in better spir
its just bcfoio Ml. Osborno left him than at
any other time since jcstciday noon ,

CHICAGO , Nov. 9 The anarchists weie not
let out in the exercise court this morning.
Jailer Folz said that Lingg filmll bo let out
no more until he is taken out for the last
tiino. Visitors weie restiicted and in 11
emote pait of the Jail a few trusted deputies
wcic perfecting final prelimln.uies needful
to the erection of the gallows. As jet this
nstiument of death has not been removed
from the storage room , but c\crl\thing Is in
i c.ulincss to go foi ward wlththo executions
that is , eveij thing except the moro joining
together of tlio frame w oik of the gallows ,
but that ean bo done in aeiy little while ,
Tor tlio flist tlmo since the supicma touit
passed the case Nina Van Xandt was today
denied ndmlsBlon , She tolled up the h on stall H
In the lain , opened the btoim door and
took shelter In the enclosed cntiy. A mo
ment latir her white face appealed In the
jail encluRuro nnd In humble tone ho was
asked to bo allowed In. The dooikeeper
shook his head , saying tnat 01 dors had been
given to keep her out. Jailor Foi/ was buck
somewhere in the cage. She sent for him.
Ho eamo out and in u kindly but very positive
tone informed her he was obliged to rofusa
her entrance. Shoioinained where she was ,
holding on to the iron bars as if not compui-
hcndlng what was said. The Jailoi continued :
"Spies Is locked ui > Ho can't bo let out of
Ilia cell and jou could lint BCO him anyway , if
you did come in. " 'Slowly the young woman
tinned away. She gionca her way down
stairs In the rain , and with painful stops Him
went out through the jail aid and tinned
down an alley.
But tlio jail door was opened while Miss
Van Xandt was on the threshold. It was so
opened for aged Mis Engcl , who was ac
corded a brief intorvinw with her husband.
None other of the wives or relatives of the
anarchists i ailed to MO tlirm thin morning.
