SIOUX FALLS. S. D.. Nov. 1 On the
ere of the election the democrats say they
will elect from twelve to fifteen of the 130
members of the state legislature. Repub
licans concede them only six. Conserva
tive estimates place the socialist vote -at
,0oo and the total at 80,000.
t'HICAGO, Nov. 3. The republicans claim
they will have nineteen out of twenty-five
congressmen and enough members of the
state legislature to elect a United States
senator to succeed WlUlero E.-Mason. The
democrats claim a majority of tjhe legisla
ture. ... ' . ' i . .
Of the twenty-five 'congressmen tbe . re
publicans claim sixteen for siwe-snfl -probably
nineteen. The democrats claim twelve,
lo Chicago and Cook county there has been
tn some of the congressional districts a
desperate fight. The republicans assert,
"however, they sll carry the county by not'
Jess thsn 15,000 ahd probably 25,000. The
democrats claim 12.000 majority. It ia
predicted on both sides that there will be
a large independent vote, and there is no
telling which way this will go.
8T. PAUL. Nov. 3. Both republican and
democratic chairmen are sanguine and each
is predicting 25.000 plurality for .his party.
The fight haa been principally on governor,
the democrats putting in their best efforts
to elect L. A. Rosing and virtually 'con
reding the rest of the ticket to the repub
lican locals. This tact will certainly re
duce the vote for Governor Van Sant below
the rest of the state .ticket, but whether
It will be sufficient to defeat him Is very
The legislature will have a large repub
lican majority in both branches.

the legislature will be close, but with St.

BALTIMORE., Nov. 3. The chairman of
the republican committee Issued a state
ment this evening predicting that the statu
will go republican by from 10,000 to 12,000
and will again send a solid republican del
egation to congress.
The . chairman of the democratic com
mittee professes confidence In the election
of four democratic congressmen, with good
chances for a fifth. The safest forecast
seems to be the election of four repub
llcsns and two democrats. (
TiOVETt, Pel., Nov. 3. Estimates from
various sources tonight Indicate that J. Ed
ward Addlcks will be unable to control the
next legislature. William Michael Byrne,
the union (Addlcks) republican nominee
for congress predicts a combined repub
lican majority lo the legislature, with a
deadlock on the aenatorshlp, but with the
ultimate election of two United States sen
ators. The regular republican chairman
disputes this claim, and says the Addicks
faction will elect not more than sixteen
members of the legislature, which would
preclude the possibility of Addlcka' elec
tion to tho senate. One regular republican
estimate gives democrats 25, republicans
22, doubtful 5. Democratic leaders claim
majority over both republican faetlons.
MILWAUKEE, Wis.. Nov. 3. Whilo the
cbancea seem to favor the success of the
republican atate ticket at the polls, there
are many things entering Into the contest
.which render it hard to make an accurate
forecast. Mayor Rose appears to be con
fident of being elected by anywhere from
12,000 to 17,000, and General George F.
Bryant, chairman of the republican state
central committee, estimates Governor La
Folletfs plurality at 40,000. The republican '
managers claim ten congressman and one I
rn doubt, while the democrats are sure of
one and claim a fighting chance for three
other. '. It la generally conceded that the
republicans will control th next legislature,
which elects a senator.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. The lull before the
opening of the final atruggle tomorrow finds
the leaders of both parties claiming large,
and lq many Inatances Increased, pluralities.
Frank Campbell, chairman of the demo
cratic atate committee, declares his esti
mate of IJ.OOO plurality for Coler for gov
ernor, erred on the side of modesty and
rale the figures to 50,000. His Increased
estimate Is based on alleged information
indicating -a landslide for the democratic
party: He thinks It not Improbable that
Mr. Coler's plurality may run as" high as
Colonel George V. Dunn, chairman of the
republican state committee, on the other
hand, stands fast to his original estimate

HALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. J On ac
count of the entrance" pt tSe church question
Into politics this yearr party., lines have
been so disintegrated that saany surprises
are looked for. . Chief Interest centers in
the contest for control bf the legislature,
which will this winter elect a successor
to Senator Rawlins. In Salt Lake the
republican gentile defection will unques
tionably be heavy, but republican leaders
declare this will be more than counterbal
anced by the 'Mormon democratic defec
tion. '-v. Ohio.
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 3. The democratic
managers still persist that there may be a
surprise in the vote on the state ticket and
that they will gain three congressmen,
surely two. The present Ohio delegation
consist of seventeen republicans and four
democrats. Chairman Dick said he ex
pected a gain of one in the Thirteenth dis
trict. There are others at the republican
headquarters who predict the plurality of
Laylln for secretary of state will approxi
mate 100,000. The republicans offer bets at
odds which were never heard of In Ohio
heretofore. Although the talk of the cam
paign hae been about Johnson succeeding
Hanna, no beta have been made on Johnson
as Hanna's successor.
PHILADELPHIA, Nor. J. Senator Quay,
chairman of the republican state commit
tee, tonight issued a statement, in which
he gives his estimate by counties on tho
vote for governor tomorrow. The state
ment shows a plurality for Pennypacker
(republican) of 163,435. Philadelphia's plu
rality for Pennypacker be places at 105,
000 and that of Allegheny county (Pitts
burg) Is placed at 25,000. The senator con
cedes but one of the thirty-two congres
sional districts to the democrats, and
claims that the republicans will have two
thirds majority In both branches of the
Democratic State Chairman Creasjr said
that Pattlson (democrat for governor)
would have 40,000 plurality and that the
next legislature would be anti-Penrose for
United States senator. ... ',
BOSTON, Nov. 3. Should the Indian sum
mer continue It is believed the total vote
will run well above 300,000. Republicans
are exceedingly confident and the demo
crats hopeful. The former claim the state
by 25,000, while the latter believe they will
elect their candidate for governor by 8,000.
the present congressional delegation stands
ten republicans and three democrats, but
this year Massachusetts gain a congress
man on redistribution. Under the new ap
portionment the republicans assert twelve
of the party candidates will win, while the
democrats claim at least six.
The uncertain element is the strength of
the socialist vote. This year a phenomenal
increase Is looked for.
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 3. On the eve of
the election the leaders of bbtb parties are
expressing confidence of success. Senators
Fairbanks and Beveridge are out with
statements claiming the state 'jy from 20,000
to 30.000. and that their pfirty will have
a majority in both houses. The coming
legislature will eelect a successor to Sen
ator Fairbanks. '
The state chairman of the democrats Is
equally confident and said: "Every Indi
cation points to a sweeping democratic
victory. We shall elect a majority of sen
ators and carry the house of representa
tives. We shall Increase our congressional
SEATTLE, Nov. 3. Contrary to expecta
tions, It looks today as If a very heavy vote
will be cast throughout the state tomor
row. The democrats practically concede
the election of Cushman and Jones to con
gress. HELENA, Mont., "Nov. 3. Chairman Llnd-
sey of the republican state central com
mittee, predlcta the election of Dixon for
congress and Holloway for supreme justice
by a good majority. On the other hand,
Chairman Toomey of the democratlo com
mittee claims Evans will be elected con
gressman and Leslie supreme court justice.
Both chairmen claim the legislature.

Recorder of Commission.
TOUR OF INVESTIGATION CONTINUED
Arbitrators Arrive In I.rhlaTh Wiley
and Will Ktamlne Conditions In
hat rrtlon of the Anthrn.
elte foal Region.
HAZLETON. Pa.. Nov. 3 The anthracite
strike commission spent the entire day in
the Lehigh Valley region, visiting one mine
and several of the mining villages. While
most of the commissioners were looking
over the territory.. Becordnr Wright was
kept busy on the train attending to the
correspondence of the commission. Among
the matters he disposed of was the send
ing to all the coal .companies Involved
of a copy of President Mitchell's state
ment of the miners' case, which was filed
with the commission on Sunday night be
fore Ita departure for Scranton.
Explains Continued Strike.
The commission's first stop was at Upper
Lehigh, where A. C. Lelaenrlng, superin
tendent of the Upper Lehigh Coal com
pany, took them for a drive through the
town. While there the arbitrators visited
one of the homes of the. miners, the first
they have been in since they have been
touring the region. ' Drirton was the next
place visited.- and there a crowd gathered
as the superintendent of Coxe Bros, com
pany, explained the trouble between the
company and Ita men. All the miners em
ployed at these mines are still on strike
because the company, insist upon them re
turning to work as individuals and not la
a body. .
At Jeddo, John Markle, the Independent
operator, joined the party and escorted
the commissioners to the mining village of
Oakdale. near Jeddo. Mr. Markle showed
them the clubhouse, whirh.be maintains
there for the benefit of the men. On the
run Into Hazleton, where the breaker of
No. 40 shaft was Inspected, Messrs. Markle,
Duffy and Gallagher had a spirited discus
sion over tho differences existing at the
Markle mines. None of the men at the
Markle colliery have returned to work for
the same reason as those which are keeping
the men out of the Coxe mines. Mr. Markle
told them he was running the Markle com
pany and would maintain discipline.
The entire afternoon was spent in the Au
denreld mine. The commissioners were
lowered Into the workings 350 feet below
through an 1,100-foot slope. One of the new
"physical features" they saw was a vein of
coal with a Tery steep pitch which was dif
ficult to mine. While they were inspecting
this a blast was fired in a nearby chamber
and the lights carried by those who re
mained In the gangway below were ex
tinguished by the rush of air. Some of the
party were timid for a moment, wondering
what had happened, but they were quickly
assured there was no danger.
After they came to the surface the arbi
trators visited a "stripping," which Is the
place where the coal lies so near the sur-
' face that the earth can be taken off with
! a steam shovel, exposing the coal, and thus
making Its mining an easy matter.
The commissioners .will leave for Sha
mokln at 7:45 tomorrow.
Oppose Sliding; Scale.
WILKESBARRE. Pa., Nov. 3. Although
the various coal companies are not prepared
to give figures. It Is known that the output
In the anthracite region was larger than any
day since the collieries resumed operations
eleven days ago. ..' "
Mr. Mitchell's statement will probably be
made public by the commission tomorrow.
The statement practically reiteratea the de
mands made at the Shamokln convention
and doea not favor the eliding scale advo
cated by President Baer.
The general opinion among the miners is
that the readoptlon of the sliding scale
would be a step backward and Instead of
the miners gaining anything by their strike
they would be the losers.

years has heard much more clamor for sil

The talent last 'night seemed to have

play no part Id their wagers found It diffi
cult apparently, to find money among those
who believed Mercer would be successful.
At one place $1,000 In sums of $100 each
or a whole, was offered, even upon the
election of ' either' Hitchcock or Thomp
son. Fifty dollars was offered on the
proposition that Hitchcock would carry the
Third ward by 300 majority. English was
backed at even ' money against Jefferi for
$100 and $40. Twenty to forty was offored
on the proposition that both Thompson and
Hitchcock would bo elected. Even money
was offered that Mercer would not. have 500

MERCER AND CADET TAYLOR
How Dave Turned a Deaf Kar to the
Xnineroas Victims of Taylor's
OMAHA, Nov. 3, ,1902. To the Editor of
The Bee: I see by the papers, and have
been told personally, that David H. Mercer
pretends that be 'tried in all ways possible
to defeat the confirmation by the United
Statea aenate of Cadet Taylor, the wrecker
of the Globe Savings bank, as surveyor of
the port of Omaha a job worth at least
$5,000 a year to.an honest man, and I hardly
know or can eyD guess its value to a man
of his peculiar tiyocl1vlt Ics. When Taylor
was appointed, JajlS, Imagine the surprise
snd Indignatlonjwith which bid soldiers,
working wome J , laboring men, . school
teachers, mlnlstlrs ,pf the gospel and all
classes at the news of the appointment of
a man whom they , firmly believed had
robbed many of them of their last dollar.
Immediately many of the depositors began,
sending protests, to Mercer, our nonresi
dent congressman, and to the. senate com
mittee to which the appointment had been
referred. . .
I had a client, a poor, hardworking labor
ing man with a large family. James. M.
Weckerly, who had been Inveigled Into
placing in the Globe bank his last cent, the
money he had saved up to buy himself and
family a home with in Omaha. Mr. Weck
erly and others came to me and made af
fidavits as to, the manner in which they
had been victimized and asked me to for
ward them to Mercer, which I did. I know
of many others who wrote him also and
sent proof of being swindled through Cadet
Taylor, yet sometime afterward when I
mat Senator Nelson, chairman of the com
mittee which reported on Taylor's con
firmation, be told me that our congress
man, Mr. Mercer, bad come before his com
mittee snd asserted that there was no more
honest or upright man In Omaha or the
United States than Cadet Taylor and that
he had received no letters or telegrams
from his constituents except those asking
him to use his influence to have Taylor
confirmed. Senator Nelson told me Cadet
Taylor would not have been confirmed If
Our Dave bad said the word.
Although Taylor has received $4,000 or
$6,000 from the United States. I have failed
to see or hear where he baa paid back one
cent to the poor laboring men and women
victimised In his bank, although I hear from
good authority that he has given a liberal
donation to the campaign fund to help send
Mercer back to congress. I hope this will
remind our citizens of Mercer's connection
with this outrage. I am, yours very truly.
