CHICAGO , Nov. 2. On the night before
the battle , serene and unbounded con
fidence reigns In the headquarters' camp
of the democratic party , aad In that of
their republican rivals as well. On neither
Bide Is there a shadow of a doubt of the
re-suit of the struggle , and , In fact , so sure
arc the tvro parties of victory , that there
is on both sides a feeling of astonlnhment
that the other fellow has the audacity to
claim anything at all.
At both headquarters there was today a
general exodus for home and voting booths.
Chairman Hanna left for Cleveland tonight
nnd , after casting his vote , ho will go to
Cantor for a visit to Major McKlnley , re
turning to Cleveland at 2:30 : , and will re
ceive the election returns In his office.

CHICAGO. Nov. 2. On the eve of ele-ctlon
the- lines of the two great parties arc In
practically about the same condition as
when the situation was outlined forty-eight
hours earlier. The admission of Chairman
Jonee that this state could be classed among
those In the "doubtful" column has not
been over encouraging to tbo managers of
the state election on the democratic side .
but they have not weakened In the least and
Kay tonight that they are sure of carrying
the state by a majority of from 25,000 to
10 000. They claim fourteen out of twenty-
one congressmen , u majority of the lower
house In the ctate legislature/ eay that
with the aid of the populists to be elected
they w-Ill elect n silver man to be the suc-
ct'Esor of Senator John M. Palmer. The
claims of the republicans are more exten
sive. and. with two or three exceptions , they
claim every one of the congressmen , all of
the etate ticket and the electoral vote for
McKlnley by anywhere from Sfi.OOO to 150-
000. They eay that they are absolutely sure
of the result of the ntate and national
tickets , us the poll of the state , which they
liave been conducting , has been so thorough
and so exact that there Is very little chance
of any estimate made upon U being far
out of the way.
Allen Maxwell , the candidate for state
auditor on the democratic silver ticket , sent
word to Chairman Jones today that he had
discovered "a plan of the republicans to
ttcal the election In Lawrence county. " The
re-publicans were disposed to ridicule the
story and said that If anybody was caught
trying to steal the election , no matter to
whom he might be about to try to deliver
It , they would join hands with the demo
crats In prosecuting him. The struggle In
the Fifth congressional district has been
ono of the hottest of the campaign and Con
gressman White , who Is pltte'd against E.
T. Noanan , the fusion candidate , and Dr.
John A. McDonnell , an Independent repub
lican. Is having a sharp fight for election.
Of the other Chicago congressmen , Cook of
the Sixth district and Foss , In the Seventh ,
seem fairly well assured of , re-election. The
opposition against them seems to be badly
split up. The republicans say that they will
have all the congrc smen In the nortncrn
part of the state ) by Icrge majorities , and
the only men they stand to lone ore from the
roiillieru portion , where they admit they
have no bright chances of winning out.
They are. however , they assort , absolutely
euro of carrying by far the larger portion
of the congressional delegation.

PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 2. Pennsylvania
tomorrow will elect thirty-two presidential
electors , two congrcssmcn-at-large and con
gressmen In the twenty-eight districts of
the state , twenty-five out of fifty state sen-
ntors and a general assembly of 204 mem
bers. None of the republican estimates
Klve McKluley less than 250,000 plurality In
the state , while many think he will have
more than 300.000. "All the democrats con
cede a blK plurality for McKlnley , but give
no figures. Of the thirty congressmen to be
chosen It Is believed five , and possibly six ,
will be democrats. The Incoming legis
lature , which will elect a successor to
United States Senator J. Donald Cameron ,
will bo about 00 per cent republican.

ST. LOUIS , Mo. . Nov. 2. Never before

In Missouri where there was as much bitter-

tics as the one which closet ! tonight. Some
of t > > o leaders In both the democratic and
republican parties predict trouble at the
polls tomorrow. Governor Stor.e Is In St.
Louis tonight , and be declares the right
of every citizen to east his ballot shall be
maintained at any cost. He said he would
not bo surprised to see the St. Louis jail
filled to overflowing before tomorrow night.
Chairman Samuel Cook of the democratic
state central committee says that Bryan
will carry the state by 70,000 plurality over
McKlnley. The republicans may carry St.
Louis , but , he cays , the country outside
will overcome that by 70,000. R. C. Kerens ,
republican national cominlttermnn , from
Missouri , on the other hand , says the re
publicans will carry the state by 40.000 for
McKlnley. He figures that St. Louis will
give McKlnley anywhere from 26.000 to
10.000 plurality , and that he wi'.l carry the
state outside by 10,000 to 10,000.

CINCINNATI. Nov. 2. There were meetIngs -
Ings throughout Ohio and Kentucky today.
The meetings were more active today and
tonight than ever , and much feeling was
manifested in certain quarters. There U
more Interest taken here In the result In
the border states than in Ohio.
The republicans generally concur In the
official statement of Chairman Kurtz that
Ohio will give McKlDley a larger plurality
than It has eve ; given any candidate- for
president or governor with the single ex
ception of Brough's majority in 1S63 o !
101.000. While Chairman McConvlIle of
the democratic state o.-ramlttee has given
out" no official forecast , yet the democratic
managers are claiming an even chuni-c on
the state and even on Hamilton county ,
which Includes Cincinnati. The republican
county committee ela4ms Cincinnati will
give McKlnley over 20,000 plurality , and
that the county will not reduce it any.

claims to be absolutely confident of carryIng -
Ing the elate for the national , fctate and
county ticket. A conservative estimate
might give the go\ernor and legislature to
the republicans , with the electoral ticket
much In doubt.

The republicans of Lincoln are confident
and are claiming the county for McKlnley
by fully 2,000. They have perfected a splen
did organization In each and every precinct
and a full republican vote will be polled.
A vigilance committee has been appointed
In every precinct to see that every repub
lican vote IB got out , and not Intimidated
at the polling places. Chairman Stephenson
furnished the following statement for pub-
Bent Ion today :
The campaign Is closed with the ex
ception of counting the ballots. The
followers of Bryan and re-pudlatlon are
dectlm-d to be the v.-orst surprised rem-
nunts of political parties that ever ad-
\ocate d n hopeless caus < p. For the past
two weeks they have flooded the streets
with all forts of campaign dodgers for
the wind to blow about , attacking every
body. Intimidating voters and threat
ening election otllcers. For weeks the
opposition has been fighting with a dis
organized and desperate effort that will
avail them nothing but crushing de
feat. The free silver campaign has de
scended Into one of fraud and forgery and
fit-nscless and foolish claims.
For weeks we have been ready to BO
to the polls at any hour fully confident
of the result. We have no charges to
make , no iipologleto offer for any one
nor no characters to defend ; but submit
our cause o.uarely upon Its merits as
for the best Interests of all the people
of the whole country. Below we give
a statement of the majorities McKlnley
will receive In Lincoln :
First ward . SM
St-cond ward . . . 1
Third -warel . "
Fourth ward . 4JO
Fifth ward . ) ?
fllxth ward . 211

Total . . 2. < 6
These arc the figures In round number ?
by which McKlnley will carry Lincoln and
Lone-aster county , as shown by a careful
eonseie-ntlous poll. giving liryun every
doubtful vote. McKlnley will carry Uryan'n
own precinct by 133 majority ana perhaps-
a few votes more. We have the Ilsht won
and the result will Justify the accuracy
of our claims.
The republicans of Lincoln closed the
campaign tonight with a fire works parade
and two monster mass meetings. The prin
cipal speaker was Hon. John 1' . insn. tne
noted California orator , who met Bryan In
Joint debate at the Crete Chautauqua July
4. The distinguished orator spoke at both
the Funke and Lansing theaters , deliver
ing a one-hour's address at each meeting-
Hon. I. W. Lansing , the singing pilgrim ,
who has been making speeches In the east
nd south , divided the time with Mr. Irish
at the Funko. W. S. Summers assisted Mr.
Irish at the Lansing theater.
The mass meetings were preceded by o
parade of the uniformed and ladle's' clubs
and a fireworks display. The demonstration
was the most brilliant of any teen In Lin
coln during the campaign.
Mr. Iriflh spoke at the Lansing first and
at the Funke next. Hon. N. S. Harwood ,
thu well known -sound money democrat ,
presided at the Lansing meeting aud Hon.
C. H. Gere * t the Funke meeting.
Mr. Iritb llkencxl the present repudiation
and anarchistic Chicago platform to the
nullification acts of South Carolina , which
we-re prompily stamped out by Andrew Jack
son without the army or navy and without
the aid or consent of any other nation on
earth. Ho urged all sound money voters ,
Irrespective of party affiliations , to crush
the head of the nullification snake at the
polls tomorrow , and prophesied that even
though the tall should dlo hard , the entire
snake * would be dead as a door nail by
Wednesday noon.
Ono by ono he nailed Bryan's fallacious
arguments for the demolition of the su
preme court , national banks , railway cor
porations and Insurance companies , and
clearly proved to the voters present that
In America there Is fusion between the
masses and classes and not the discrimina
tion claimed by populists and demagogues.
After holding populist rule in Kansas up to
the deTlslon of the whole country. Mr. Irish
captured his house by characterizing Mary
Ellen Lease as a Bryan in petticoats and
Bryan as a Mary Ellen Lease In trousers.
The speaker protested against the non-
contract of the Chicago platform and
went into the coinage question fit
length. declaring that if It was
the dollar of ' 73 which the Bryanltes
want , they would have to coin a dollar which
would telescope , readily to keep pace with
the fluctuations of the silver market. As
to there being less money In circulation
now than some little time ago. he admitted
that there was a great deal less In circula
tion on the very day following Mr. Bryan's
nomination , than upon the aay proceeding
it. In conclusion he urged i.ound money
voters to bury the Chicago platform so
deep tomorrow that the third trump of
Gabriel's born will not rouse It on the
resurrection morn.
Among the Omaha men on the stage were.
Euclid Martin and Lee Spratiln. The meet
ing was held under the auspices of the
sound money democracy , as was also the
overllow meeting at the Funke.

Unparalleled In western politics were the
scenes attendant upon John P. Irish's flying
trip through the farms , the hamlets and the
cities of Nebraska yesterday. Old campaign-
ire who have stood In the forefront of
many a political battle eay that the closing
day of this most sensational campaign was
without an equal in the enthusiasm dis
played and the crowds that attended upon
the meetings arranged by the sound money
democracy for the orator from the Pacific
Coupled , however , with the fairly decorous
treatment accorded the orator , who was born
In Iowa and who dignified his native state
by an upright , honorable life , were situations
that showed how greatly the people were
wrought up over the class prejudices
preached by the popocratlc candidate , Wil
liam J. Bryan. At Fairmont , In Flllmore
county , the Irish special was hooted and
Jeered , nnd when Mr. Irish endeavored to
speak the crowd of 3.000 would not allow
him to be heard , , although he appealed to
them us men who held dear the right of
free speech to accord him the same consid
eration KK sound money republicans and
democrats had accorded Mr. Bryan but an
hour before. In epeakliig of the attempt to
choke off free spicch Mr. Irish eald : "The
first thing necessary to the general enlight
enment of the friemen of the country Is
the absolute freedom of speech. Free spttch
U the first and highest American birthright ,
the foundation of good government , the guar
anty of perpetual liberty. The political party
which advlMs Its followers to stay away
from discussion of all sides of every political
Isruo or advises them to be present only to
prevent such discussion and assassinate free
speech Is a party In Its essence treasonable
to the republic , and managed by leaders
whose conduct Is cowardice , seasoned with
treachery. Supporters of Mr. Bryan by their
conduct In this campaign In many states
their denial of free speech , their proffer of
mob violence , have convinced the American
people that nullification and treason , rotten
morals , rotten manners , rotten money and
rotten government have tbctr only and ap
propriate expression In the rotten eggs which
are the arguments addressed to the people
by supporters of Mr. Bryau. "
At Crete , where argument Is supposed to
have Its highest education , some membero
of the party accompanying Mr. Irish were
compelled to go among the crowd collected
at the station ecd forcibly Insist upon a
proper hearing being accorded Irish and Mr.
Mahoney. While the crowd was large-ly for
McKlnley , small groups of men and women
termed to get together by concerted action
and by vociferous demonstration try to cm-
harass and rattle the speakers. But above
the Jeers and yells of the mobs at Fairmont
and Crete. Irish and Mahoney forced atten
tion and In that neutralizing the harangues
of Bryan. Whether tfie men and women
carrying white badges were advised to thus
treat the Irish parti" Is net known , hut cer
tain It Is that In some cases their efforts
were decidedly effective.
Mr. Irish , accompanied by Lee Spratlcn ,
was met at Pacific Junction yesterday morn
ing according to the schedule prepared
for his trip through the South Platte coun
try and the ewlng crouod the circle com
menced. The special train was made up
of an engine In charge of H. T. Beatty , spe
cial ear No. 34 and a day coach , the train
being operated by Assistant General Pas
senger Agent A. B. Smith of the Burlington
and Assistant Superintendent English ofthe
northern division. The morning was cold
and foggy , but by 8 o'clock people began U
congregate at the small stations along the
route , greeting the train as It passed with
In addition to those already mentioned
there were Included in the party Euclid
Martin. T. J. Mahoney , C. S. Montgomery
Jume E. North. J. E Kclby. Judge J. C.
Crawford of West Point , W. A. Babcock ,
W. L May , Frank Heller , J. B. Shcchan.

On leaving Lincoln , which was reached on
schedule time. Mr. Irish began to unlimbcr
himself for his day's campaign. The party
was in the best of spirits , to be suddenly
plunged In sadness on account of the Fpe-
clal crashing Into the rear end of a freight
train and Instantly killing a traveling ninu
The engine hauling the Irish party was con
siderably used up. while the caboose and
ono freight car were completely shattered.
The Jar accompanying the striking of the
rear of the freight train threw a number
of the party off their feet , dislocating the
shoulder of Assistant Superintendent English
and bruising others. But no other Eerlous
Injury occurred.
At Seward a crowd of people were con
gregated , the arrival of the special being
greeted by the playing of a brans band.
Mr. Irish spoke from the station platform
anil was accorded the closest attention. He
cald he came to them as a man who wa < =
seeking to bury his party affiliations for
his country's honor. That patriotism should
1)0 placed high above every other considera
tion , for he believed these dayij of 18 %
were almost similar to the days of IKfil.
He then touched upon the nullification spirit
of the Chicago platform and asked all good
citizens to Etamp out this spirit as did
Andrew Jackoon when he put his "hickory
heel flown upon the serpent , which remained
crushed until its hiss echoed in Chicago in
July , and resulted In the choice of William
J. Bryan , a bolter from his party , as the
poporratlc nominee. "
At York the Irish party encountered a
Bryan crowd and for prudential reasons It
was thought best to have Irish Epcak from
the court house steps. Instead of from the
platform occupied by Bryan. Two thousand
people faced the speaker as lie mounted the
steps , and the cheers for McKlnle-y showed
that York county would give a good account
of Itself on election day.
Mr. Irish having been furnished with the
salient points ot Bryan's speech , started In
to meet the popocratlc nominee on his own
proposition In regard to the per head money
circulation. "I want to ay right here. "
said Irish , "that there was lees money In
circulation the day after Bryan's nomination
than the day before. His nomination brought
about * conditions which now threaten to
overthrow law and order and bring thU
country upon a level with Mexico , China
end Japan. And If Mr. Bryan loves these
nations GO well. I bid him godspeed to
them. " He then touched on the whef.t quw-
tlon , ntatlng that lie had Just received a
v.-rc from Chicago Indicating that wheat
had advanced - cents over Palurday's clos
ing prices , because of the demand abroad.
Aurora turned out a thousand people to
hear Irish and the predominance of McKln
ley badges and gold colors showed how
high the feeling was running. The rpeakrv
tosk up the nuuttiun of contract sought to
be Invalidated by the Chicago platform. He
followed It through the varying ohangeli
frcm the marrUn ( relation 1o the employe's
contract and called upon hli hearers to lcup :

crime of 1873. " cald he. "thtre have been

The republican campaign In Douglai
ouuty ended last night with the most re
markable political demonstration ever seen
u Nebraska. Never before was such a
manifestation of public sentiment witnessed
n Omaha. Sound money enthusiasm rau
lot. It was echoed by the tramping feet
f 15,000 voters marching under the banner
f McKluley and MacColl. It gleamed In
many torches which reemed to populate the
ntlrc center of the city with scintillating
tars. It rang in the shouts of the cnthus-
astlc marchers and found response In the
wild cheers of the thousands who lined the
urbs and filled the windows of the butld-
ugs. It rose again In the Inspiring strains
f twenty bands and filled the atmosphere
vlth buch rampant exuberance of patriotic
entlment as has not been known In presl-
cntlal campaigns since the American peo-
ilo faced the Issue of freedom for the slave.
Nothing could be more Mgulfleant than
uch a spectacle. It war not a parade of
he ward workers mid professional poll-
Iclaus. Hundreds of grey-haired men
narched In the ranks , who had taken no nc-
Ivo part In politics for years. There wcro
HisltifsE men , bankers , lawyers , physicians
nd worklugmcn who had never before pnr-
Icipated ! n such a demonstration. But
ait night they marched for three hours
nd helped to swell the parade In propor-
lans that emphatically Indicated that Doug-
as county will do its duty In the gcat
ontest of today.
The most tuugutne anticipations of the
opubllcan managers were far exceeded. It
md been expected that it would be the btg-
; cst demonstration ever seen in Omaha ,
lut It was more than that. It was fully
wlcc as big an the bluest of previous
ears , and more than twice as enthusiastic.
A dozen Fourth of July celebrations wcro
concentrated 'n one ticmcnclinic burst of
hunderous clamor. From the early evening
until long afcr the parade was over the
noise was deafening end Incessant. The
cheers of the multitude were drowned in
ho blare of thoussndB of horns , the Inces
sant fusillade of the sbotcuu brigades and
he music of the bands. The city WHS ablaze
with red fire and the tsy ! was lit by the
ascending rockets and 'bombs. And in the
ntdst of It all a candidate for the presidency
came and went , hit- advent as unntfllccd as
the chirp of a cricket beside the thunder ol
a battery of twenty-pounders.
Although the paiade was delayed In order
hat Mr. Bryan might have the right of way
o his hall the people began to gather on the
streets soon after supper. They hung on
he street cars by fmscrs. toes and eyelashes
end for a couple of hours every downtown
car was weighted to Its capacity. Most of
he voters were congrciutlng ut their ward
leadquarters to march In the parade and
their wives and daughtiro and sisters and
sweethearts came down town to stand on tbo
sidewalks and cheer them as they pae > sed.
This was In Itself u feature that would have
> ecn Impossible In an nrdjnary campaign. In
the crowd on the streets wcro thousands
of women , who necinrd to be as thoroughly
enthused as the men who inarched past
them. They cheered until they were hoarto
and clapped thiir hands and waved their
handkerchiefs. Many of them had horns
and they stood on their toes and blew them
is energetically ae though the result of the
election depended on tlulr Individual ef
forts. Here and there a knot of Bryan shoot
ers had congregated with the expressed tn-
entlou of interfering with the parade. But
hey changed their minds as the solid line
of men marching from curb to curb tramped
last them and the ImmctiFe army marched
through the crowded streets without any
material disorder. The presence of a heavy
detail of police contributed materially to
this result. There were a half dozen active
bluecoats on every corner and the prospect
of a night In a cell was not encouraging to
the few hoodlums who were disposed for
Soon after 7 o'clock thr various organiza
tions began to form In dlvlslonH. It was
a difficult task to mobilize such un array ,
jut It was finally successfully accomplished.
Some of the clubs were a little out of their
aligned order , but the constant exertloim
of the marshals brought them into a better
alignment than Is usually effected In a po
litical parade. It was nearly ' . ' o'clock when
Chief Marshal Frank E. Moores gave the
order to march and the heart of the proccs *
slon started from Eighteenth and Douglaj
streets. As It passed donn Douglas street
the varlouti divisions filed into line and for
the first time the iir.mentity of the affair
became uppaieiit. The men were massei !
as thickly as possible. The ranks marched
In compact order and in many CBKCB fifteen
and twenty abreast. Even then the parade
was nearly two milt's lung , and the head
had passed back up J'ciMtm. around tbo city
hall and was counteringchlng at Sixteenth
and Nicholas streets before the last division
had fallen into line on Douglas Hired. Tha
panicle wan just on hour in passing u given
point and more than tuo hours In completing
the line of march.
