that prevailed at the polli.
AtUi'io o'clock yesterday V. O , Strlcklor
pncnred at the western Union telegraph
' ( mica ulth n bunch of telegrams for Irani-
mission. Ho counted out and over about (37
In toll * for them. lIVBtnndcn who witnessed
the transaction comiudod thnt Strlcklcr was
notifying tbo county prohibition committeemen -
men UiroucL'out the sin to thnt Omaha wm
going solid n ulnat the nmcntlmcnt. It win
also thought thnt ho hud Invented stories of
Intimidation against prohibition votew for
the solo nurposo of creating projtidlco In the
rural districts to Intensify the feeling u gainst
Toll-grams were soon after received by
Tin : Bai : from several towns in the stnto
tinting that prohibition workers were
exhibiting telegrams from tholr co-
laborers In Omaha carrying the
false report that this city was running to
riot and that prohibitionists were being
mobbed and driven from the polls. The correspondents -
respondents Bald , however , that this con
temptible ) trick had availed nothing so far as
could ho perceived.
The truth Is that there were trilling dis
turbances In but throe or four wards. Those
were provoked by men peddling tickets who
wort ) not residents of the respective wards ,
nnd some not residents of the state , and who
persisted in attempts to challenge null-
prohibition voters and In puddling bogus
tickets. Not a slnglo prohlhitlon
voter was In the slightest degree
Interfered within voting , and scores of pro
hibitionists worked nt the polls throughout
the day without hindrance cr molestation.
In onu Instance , nt least , thrco urn-sts of
antl-prohlbltlonists wcro made , These
parties were attempting to prevent a prohlbl-
lion 1st from working at a Dolling placu In the
Hon. K. V. Hoggon , secretary of the
Hankers' and 'Business Men's ' association ,
was asked last evening for an estimate of the
vote on the prohibitory amendment. Ho
gave It ns bis opinion thnt the majority
against the proposition would reach UO.OOO

Never In the history of Omaha was there
greater interest manifested In election re
turns than the people manifested lust night.
Never were the arrangements for accommo
dating the public In this particular so thor
oughly satisfactory as these which Tnr Hun
provided last night , atid which wcro enjoyou
by an Immense audience of citizens of every
political persuasion , completely filling the
tldewalks nnd street between the New York
LIfonmt Tin : lii ! : : buildings.
As early ns seven o'clock the people began
to congregate on the walk in front of tlio
largo canvas upon which the desired information
mation was expected to appear as eon as
reports from the various ward *
of tlio city and from o.vcr the state and nation
shosld begin to arrive. Tlio canvas used was
twelve feet square , and stood high enough so
that everybody could sea what was thrown
upon It. 'iho slcreoptlcan work was excel
lent , and every word and figure appeared on
the sheet in lines so plain and clear thnt tliov
could bo read almost a block away. The portraits
traits wcro lifelike and easily recognized by
all who know the originals. The series of
cartoons elicited round after round of laugh
ter nnd nppluuso from the delighted throng.
There were many ladles In the audience nnd
they Esoined to enjoy the occasion as much us
The enterprise of Tun Dnr. In furnishing
tlio host means of gaining reliable Informa
tion concerning the great battle of ballots
was freely and frequently commended by
thousands who spent the evening In looking
at the canvas ) . As the majority against pro
hibition kept growing inoro certain and
greater the people became moro and inoro
enthusiastic , nnd toward midnight hundreds
and thousands of citizens who have been
anxious for many months , lest the amend-
, incut should carry nnd bring financial and
commercial ruin to the city nnd state , went
homo happy , feeling assured that the Blight
of prohibition had been safely nnd perma
nently warded oft by the mighty voice of a
sensible people. _
A Slight DlHturbnnco.
Abflut four o'clock yesterday nfternoo
thci-0 was a slight disturbance at the pollin
' placoof the fifth district in the fourth ward.
There was a red-headed prohibitionist there
wltu a handful of tickets. Ho was a harmless
loss , seedy looking creature , aud his appear
'anco would have made votes against tlu
amendment rather than for it , but O. E ,
Harris , n saloon Itceper , and some of hi"
friends thought the frco whisky tlcltcl
peddler had bettor bo relieved ol
' 'tils tickets , and they began by pull
. - ing the tickets out of his hand
Olllccr Cox , who was stationed there , toli :
Harris nnd his friends to desist , but thcj
paid no attention , nud finally the ofllcervi ;
obliged to shove them off the sidewalk. Hnr
rls then hunted up Special Ofllcer Jacob :
and told him to arrest the prohibitionists
This Jacobs was about to do , when Olllcei
' Co jc 8topi > oil him and said :
" 'Gentlemen , that inim is not disturbing
Anybody , nnd you shall not bo permitted t (
disturb him. "
An alteration ensued between Cox , Ilnrrl :
and Jacobs , in which several prominent gen
, tlouicn took the part of Otticer Cox and toh
him to stand his ground. Ho was fihnll ;
obliged to arrest Harris and Jacobs and sem
thorn to the police station. The prohlbltloi
ticket peddler soon took ills departure , as hi
was persuaded that his presence at the poll
was not doing his causu any good and inigh
lead to further trouble.
SwcnritiR Unregistered Voters.
Tncro was not a tremendous rush of ur
registered voters ut the city clerk's oflico , a
had been anticipated. At 10:15 a. m
Deputy City Clerk Couusman rocelvec
a communication from Mayor Gush
ing designating him to net in the place of tin
city clerk to swear In unregistered voters am
to perform such other dalles pertaining t
the oflico as might bo necessary. Mr. Conns
man immediately had the receipt of th
communication witnessed by Rlchnn
Mullin , John Groves and IT. B , Bunu ii
order to roako the appointment doubly sur
so farns its receipt by him was concerned.
E. A. Murphy and B. B. Dooms had beoi
sworn in nud were doing duty as clerks t

CHICAGO , Nov. 4. The election In this city
, oday , though hotly contested , passed over
rery quietly. The day on the whole was
! 0ol and clear. The chief Interest centered
n the contest for the shrievalty between
Congressman Lawler , democrat , and James
I. Gilbert , republican. Another element of
nterest was the contest for county supcrin-
.cndent of schools , Mrs. General Mulligan
being the democratic nominee. "Tho little
red school house" was the issuo. Mrs.
Mulligan is n Catholic and her opponent ,
Albert G. Lane , a protcstant , and the public )
school question was used for the purpose of
turning democratic votes from Mrs. Mulli
gan. A very largo vote was cost in this
state in no election for years have so many
members of the richer classes and prominent
business men voted as today. The state
ticket was fatally scratched hero owing to
the ngltutlon on the compulsory school
question and the uncertain strength of
the ticket of "citizens" or Patriotic Sons of
America. . The ticket contained only the
names of native-born Americans , being made
up of nominees of the two leading parties ,
with some prohibitionists where republicans
nnd democrats had both nominated alien-born
citizens. The contest in the four congres
sional districts In the city WHS largely a per
sonal ono and the tariff issue was in a great
measure lost sight of.
8 :45 : p , m. Chairman Jones now claims that
the republicans will probably gain congress
men in the Sixteenth nnd Eighteenth dis
tricts. Ho also claims the state legislature
on joint ballot by n majority of 15. Tlio dem

There Is not it great deal of doubt of the

re-election. In Ctdcago the democrats stil

state are so meager that it is impossible t <

ocratlo candidates , but that thesi
gains will continue to such an cxtcn

The first result of the election to bo knowi
for a certainty was the success of the propc

MILWAUKEE , Wls. , Nov. 4. When the polls
closed at 5:10 : this afternoon the most unique
and exciting political struggle- the history
of the city came to an end. The feature of
the day was the activity of tlio Catholic nnd
Lutberan clergy in marshalling tholr forces
against the Bennett school law. . At the poll
ing booth at the corner of Grconbush nnd
Mitchell strocU , on the South side , ulmost In
t ho shadow of St. Stanislaus Catholic church ,
two Polish priests busied themselves In seeIng -
Ing that each of their countrymen voted , and
examined the ballots to mnlce sure that they
were casting them against the little school
house. Fattier Grucza was the busiest. Ills
church Is outside the cityln the Town of Lake ,
and he stated truminlmntly to friends that
when ho left the precinct In which his ctiurch
is located there had been only one or two re
publican votes cast against 100 democrats. In
the Second precinct of the Sixth ward Ca
puchin monks njipearcd , twenty-three strong ,
headed by the lather guardian. As quietly
us they came they went away , leaving twen
ty-throe democratic ballots in the box. Most
of tlio Luthcnm churches hold meetings last
night , nt which democratic- tickets were dls-
rlbuted. At the booths the Lutherans would
.ot have anything to do with the ticket pod-
lera. Some of thorn would tnko anything
.hat was put into their hands and shove it
nto their pockets , wbcro it was presumably
eft. The ch.'iractor of all the votes cast is
