As compared with the registration of
1900 the total number of voters registered
in Omaha this year shows a falling off of
3.30. the total being 13.433. as against 21,
741 two years ago.
In South Omaha the total registration
this year is 8.981. while two years ago it
was 4,872, a deficiency of Ml.
In the two cities, therefore. 4.297 less
voters are registered tor the election next
Tuesday than were enrolled preceding the
presidential election ot 1900.
The deficiency in both cities is about
evenly divided between the different par
ties. If it be tsken for granted that the
larger portion of those who refused to give
party affiliation are ot the' democratic
forces. , '
In Omaha the greatest falling off is1 in
the Third ward, where 715 less voters have
registered this, year than Jn .1900; then
cornea the Slath ward With a deficiency of
f2; the First, 394; the Eighth, 391; the
Fourth, 356; the Fifth," 31; the Seventh.
30:1; the Second, 297, and the Ninth, with
a 'falling oft of only 9. The large -registration
in the Ninth ward is explained
by the increaaed population and building
up of that part of tha city.
Although no complete statistics on the
registration of last year were compiled by
the newspapers, it is known that this
year's enrollment of voters Is In excess of
that of 1901 by probaly 1.500.
With a total of 18.435 voters registered In
the city of Omaha It Is, likely that the to
tal vote in the city next Tuesdsy will ba
about 17,000, estimating that 6 to 8 per cent
of those registered will not go to the polls.

Hons Through 'All Ranks nml

rets at the Tartlng.
The men who gathered at the Omaha club
last evenlnr to pay tribute to Edward
Dickinson represented not only the many
branches of a grest railway system, hut
also msny of the city's most important, in
terests. They brought with them from the
hearts of the people he knew best, from
the humblest to the highest in the com
munity, one unanimous sentiment of regret
over the depsrture of the Union Tsclfic's
former general manager.
The guests were there at the invitation
of President Horace, G. Burt of that road,
who acted well the host In the farewell
dinner In honor of Mr. Dickinson. They
completely filled the large hall on the sec
ond .floor of the Omaha dub, which mas
made beautiful with light and flowers for
After the menu wss served and the ci
gars passed Prvsident Burt took up the
duties of tosstmaster and announced the
speakers of the evening. The first of these
was Judge W. R. Kelly, who took the pleas
ant task of relating a short history of the
guest ot honor.
He was followed by James M. Woolworth.
"I do not know of any gentleman." ssid
the speaker, "who has become the controll
ing spirt of sny road who has brought
around him such love and respect from his
fellow workers and subordinates. In the
future may he turn back and say 'These
are the men I loved and who loved me.' "
From the Rnnk and File.
George W. Vrooman, chief of the loco
motive engineers of the system, spoke, he
said, on behalf ot the masses and brought
from them the best wishes for Mr. Dickin
son In his new field.
C. E. Engle, chief of the bosrd ot locomo
tive firemen, proposed a standing toast,
saying: "Lite your glasses snd brink with
me to the health, welfare and success of
Mr. Edward Dickinson."
President Burt then called upon Mr.
Meconnher to speak for the "hlud end of the
train." He paid one of the strongest trib
utes ot the evenlug and said that the nearly
500 men he. represented felt that in losing
Mr. Dickinsou they were losing as well as a
friend a father and adviser. He was able
to testify that Mr. Dickinson had a record
of never having done an intentional Injus
tice to a subordinate.
Following this tribute President Burt
snnounctd thst "we will have to come down
now to 'our man Baldwin.' " The general
attorney eloquently seconded the praise
that had already been spoken of the retir
ing general manager and added that he
could say nothing more in mere words
which would add to what bad been spoken.
To General Manderson, who followed, the
occasion appealed aa one which would al
ways hold a strong place In the hearts ot
those present. Incidentally he remarked
that "the occasion was so enjoyable and so
excellent an advertising medium that we
ought to order some one connected with
the Burlington to leave the service."
Edward Roaewater epoke of Edward
Dickinson aa a -soldier In the path ot duty
and painted a picture ot what the apeaker
had seen ef the' upwsrd clmb of the even
.' Senator Millard. George P. Bidwell, John
W. Lacy of Wyoming and Dr. George L.
Miller were called upon and epoke briefly,
endorsing . the sentiments . ot the other
The speech of President Burt wss un
doubtedly the greatest and most unselfish
tribute of the evening. He said in parti
"To say that I have appreciated the serv
ices of Mr. Dickinson would be expressing
it feebly Indeed. Millions have been spent
on the Union Pacific and millions Will be
spent, and every improvement that has been
made has been at the sdvlce and counsel of
Mr. Dickinson. He It waa who understood
fully the needs of our system. I am glad of
the opportunity to make the statement that
to him belongs all the credit. Mr. Stil
well has secured the services of one of the
ablest, wisest and one ot the most loyal
railroad men in this country."
And then as Edward Dickinson rose to
respond to the toasts of the evening the
guests present rose to their feet with him
and the intense feeling of the evening cul
mlnatd In a long continued burst of ap
plause. Mr. Dickinson said:
Mr. Dickinson Reaponds.
"I am at a loss for words with which to
express myself as I would like in appre
ciation of the honor that has been be
stowed upon me this evening. That I do
appreciate from ray heart I ask you all to
believe. Now, aa to my actions In leaving
the Union Pacific I will tell you all about
it. As has been stated here tonight, all
my railroad acrvice has been practically
In the employ of the Union Pacific. In my
caae, as In many others, I have come to a
time when it is best to make a change. An
opportunity has presented Itself to better
myself, especially financially, and I bave
taken it. That is all there is to It. There
Is another point I would like to speak of
and that Is the brutal effort ot aome one
to make It appear that I have been disloyal
to Mr. Burt. There has never at any time
been a lack of harmon, or friction be
tween us. I want to thank you all, again
and again, from the bottom ot my heart
Aa ba was speaking the wallers stopped
moving about among the tables and the
men leaned forward and their cigars were
forgotten, and when be had finished they
rose to their feet sgaln and started all at
once the song ot "Auld Lang Syne."

are all republican. A nonpartisan estlmste
would probably give the democrats two
and the republicans three, with cne In
Repnhllenn VMil lllinula.
CHICAGO. Nov. 1. It is admitted by the
leaders of both parties that the chief fight
ill be in Chicago and Cook county. Both
parties are claiming the county by plurali
ties ranging from 20,000 to 30.0"0. The re
publican managers say they are absolutely
certain of victory, while the democrats as
sert that the strong labor representation on
the county ticket, coupled with the pledge
to support public ownership of public utili
ties, will bring them a stronger labor vote
than they have ver hsd before and as
sure them a victory. The most Important
fight oi the election is on the congress
men. Both parties predict victory in the
Sixth dlurict. but the republicans are
conceded the First. Second, Third and Ninth
districts and democratic victory is con
ceded in the Fourth. Fifth and Eighth. The
state delegation in congress consists of
eleven republicans and eleven democrats.
The republicans claim they will gain eight
congressmen throughout the state. The
democrats do not claim a majority In the
next state delegation.
In the fight for the state legislature,
which will elect a United States senator,
the republicans claim. Including doubtful
candidates, they will have 121 members of
the legislature, while the democrats assert,
they will have 107. There seems to be
every probability that the republicans will
control the legislature.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Nov. 1. The cam
paign in South Dakota practically closed
with the meetings held in nesrly all the
principal towns of the state last night. The
republicans are claiming the state by ma
jorities of from 20,000 to 30.000. In some
counties the democrats and populists have
not even made nominations for the prin
cipal offices. In other counties, where the
democrats and populists have fused, tbey
are hopeful of some measure of success.
CONCORD. N. H Nov. 1. Senator Gal
linger, for the republicans, says he expects
a plurality of 9,000 for governor. He con
cedes slight gains for the democrats in the
legislature and county offices. Both re
publican congressmen will be re-elected.
The democrats dncllne to give figures, but
say the party will make astonishingly large
Both Claim to Win.
SALT LAKE. Utah, Nov. 1. The demo
cratic and republican state chairmen claim
the election both of the eongressional and
supreme court candidates and of a ma
jority of the executive candidates. The
legislature will elect a United States sen
ator to succeed Senator Rawlins.
DOVER, Del., Nov. 1. The campaign for
the election of a congressman and mem
bers of the legislature, which will elect
two United Slates senstors. closed tonight.
The republicans are divided into two fac
tions, the Addicks and antl-Addlcks, and
it Is believed tho democrats will elect their
congressional candidate and possibly enough
legislative candidate to elect two demo
cratic United States senators.
INDIANAPOLIS. Nov. 1. The campaign
In Indiana will closo tonight, and both the
republican and democratic committees are
claiming the state. The democrats say
the republicans will lose one or two mem
bers of congress.
Both Side Confident.
PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 1. Both sides
here claim a victory, the republicans as
serting that Judge I'ennypacker will de
feat R. E. Pattlson. the democratic candi
date for governor, by at least 100,000 ma
jority. The democratic leaders, on tho
other band, are confident of success. They
have made a strong effort to change tho
complexion of the legislature in the hope
of defeating Senator Penrose next March.
CHEYENNE. Wyo., Nov. 1. Little inter
est has been felt In the campaign this fall.
The Indications are that the republicans
will control the elections, though the demo
crats expect to reduce the majority of two
years ago and hope to Increase their rep
resentation in the legislature.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 1. The political
campaign In California closed tonight with
big demonstrations by all political parties.
California this years elects a complete set
ot state officials, a legislsture and eight
congressmen. As ususl, both republicans
snd democrsts claim tbey will mske a com
plete sweep. The situation In San Fran
cisco is interesting. Tho union labor party.
which elected Eugene Schmltz mayor last
year, has nominated a candidate for con
gress In the Fourth and Fifth districts, and
the same men have also been nominated by
the democrats. There Is some doubt
whether the republicans can win against
thia combination, but it is very probable
tbey will elect the other aix congressmen
and bave a majority in the legislature.

1 The first four dsys of next week will be
i taken up In inspecting mines and mining
i towns from Hsilelon south to the end of
the hard coal fields.
Judge Gray said tonight thst the recess
will be tsken to give both sides sufficient
time to prepsre thir esses, and the com
mission an opportunity to examine the Is
sues. The commissioners feel that the
questions Involved are so Important that
any haste may work an Injury.
When the hearings sre begun It is It
Intention to have the miners, who are cor
sldered the plaintiffs, submit their cas
first. The sixty-seven Individual operator
will also be given an opportunity to be
heard, as well as all the larger coal com
panies. The question of making a preliminary re
port on some of the Issues involved hss
not yet. been officially taken up and It Is
not definitely known tonight thst It will
Spend Day Investigating.
The arbitrators spent the dsy sbout
Wilkesbsrre. visiting one mine and making
a tour of several towns on the outskirts.
Nearly two hours were spent In the Dor
ranee colliery, belonging to the Lehigh Val
ley Coal company, at North Wilkesbsrre.
The mine is a gaseous one and the com
missioners and other members of thetr
psrty were compelled to carry safety lamps.
They were told the mine was dsngerous,
but their eagerness for Information waa so
great that the unBSfe condition of the
workings did not deter them. Ort this trip
S. D. Warrlnger, general superintendent of
the company, and W. J. Richards, general
superintendent ot the Lehigh and Wilkes
barre Coal company, accompanied them.
The miners were represented by Mr. Nlch
olls and John Fallon. There were no spe
cial Incidents in the trip and the tour wss
made much the ssmo as those taken in
other mines, the only difference being thst
they ssw a vein about sixteen feet thick,
which Is three times the thickness ot Ibe
seams seen on Thursdsy snd Friday.
Today was All Saints day and it is re
ligiously observed by many of the foreign
speaking mine workers. For fhls reason
no coal was mined In the Dorranee and
many other collieries throughout the re
gion. The company officials drew the at
tention ot the commissioners to this en
forced curtailment of the production.
After luncheon the party took a trolley
car and visited South Wllkesbarre, Ashley,
Sugar Notch and Plymouth, Inhabited prin
cipally by mine workers. They did not
leave the car, but wherever It stopped a
crowd gathered to give them an opportunity
to ask questions regarding rents and other
living expenses. On the return to Wllkes
barre the psrty immediately boarded the
train tor Scranton. .
