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 Omnlm. 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 Fourth ward. 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 votes. _ TI1I2 IIHTUKNS. Ilcnd tlio KotniltH on TIic BCO'H ( itorcoptluon. 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 tlio gentlemen. 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 facilitate the work : of making out papers. A feature of the day wa Major Furny and anothci gcntloman bringing la tholr arms John II Lfirhons , n colored man forty-four years c ago. Into tno oflico to have his voting paper mndo out. The poor man was blind unit pai alyzcd. but willingly underwent the eroa pain ot being carried up court house hill I order that ho might get his voting papers. Another feature of the day , here , was th presence from early to late of J , 1C. Ohamboi hi tlio roloof a prohibition spy. Chamber Is an abstractor and a man about forty-llv years old.

Tammany hns made a clean sweep in Now York. The southern states are monotonously dom- icratic. Iowa nnd Kansas are doubtful. Wisconsin shows democratic gains , with .oubtfiil results. In New Hampshire the republicans have ustalned losses and will perhaps lose the cglslaturo. In Colorado the democrats have made gains , but the republican state ticket and legislature will probably pull through , All other states voted about as usual. lit Illinois 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 ocratic committee docs uot concede the defeat - feat of their candidates. Ciucvoo , Nov. 4.

In the Eleventh Congressmar Guests' election has been stubbornly coutest ed by Cable , democrat , und the result is stil in doubt. Wiko , Springer , Lnno nni Williams ( dem ) arc ro-electcd and the in dlcatlons point to the re-election of Smltl ( rep ) in ttio Twentieth district , and Format ( dem. ) in the Eighteenth. The Slxtecntl district is still doubtful , but Fithinn claim ! re-election. In Ctdcago the democrats stil deny the election of Taylor in the First nnc Mason in the Third districts.

A great deal depend ; upon the legislative ticket of Cook county and it is hardly probable that the result lion will bo ascertained until some time tomorrov morning. Quixcr , III , Nov. 4. The vote polled ii Adams county today shows a falling off o fully 23 per cent from the vote of two year ago. The vote was confined to county ofll core.

The new ballot reform law worked smoothly as a rule throughout the city and the novel conditions of a secret ballot did not liavo a pronounced effect on the vote of the lower districts , which some political prophota hud nntlcipnted.

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 'onsequcntly ' a mystery. At nearly every 'Oiling ' place some Lutheran , generally school teacher , was stationed to oo that their people did not allow themselves , o bo persuaded to accept n tioket from rc- ubHcan peddlers. The prohibition and labor otes generally went to ttio republicans , split ticKcts of every imaginable kind could 10 found in most of the precincts. The low- nt estimate of the vote today is 42,000 aud ho highest 67,000. Tno estimates generally , -nry from 42,000 to 55,000. The total rogis- .ration Is 50,031.
