What the Democrats Base Their Hopes TJpon—Fusion in Nebraska Organized to Give the Republicans the Fight of THeir Liven—Red Hot Municipal Fights All Over the State of Xew York—Buckeye Expectations— Denver's Embarrassment of Tickets. Des Moines, la., Nov. 2.—There has been no change In the political situa- 'ion here during the last forty-eJjcht hours. The headquarters of both parties were practically closed yesterday. A large number of speeches were made last night in various parts of the state. Chairman McMillin, of the Republicans, is at Rock Rapids to vote, and Chairman Walsh, of the Democrats, in Ottumwa for the same purpose. The Republicans say they can lose 50,000 votes compared with last year, count 25,000 only as the Democratic loss, and they will still have the 40.000 plursUity claimed by their committee. Chairman Walsh Is claiming that .his party will lose no votes, but will gain some from the "sound money" Democrats. He says the Republicans last year polled 70,000 yotes in excess of their normal vote, which was 220,000 at high water mark until last year. Speculation Likely To Be Away Oft He thinks those 70,000 votes were largely "sound money" Democrats, and that those will this year mostly vote for the party ticket. Shaw and White, the two standard-bearers, closed their campaign last night, insisting that free silver and the gold standard are important issues in Iowa. The "sound money" Democrats are claiming 15,000 to 20,000 votes. The Prohibitionists have come forward to claim 20,000, their highest hitherto having been 11,000 votes two years ago. The facts are that no one can tell how the ballots are being cast today. After the high tide of last year there is no tellingr by politicians what will happen this year. Weather Too Bart for Politics. Cincinnati, Nov. 2.—The last day of the Ohio campaign was so Inclement that most of the meetings were abandoned. A co'd rain set in Sunday night and continued all over the state without cessation. Although there has been a long drought throughout the Ohio valley the smaller streams are high and there are bad roads in the rural, districts today. Some predictions that rains will vent the farmers from working and thus secure as large a vote as fairer weather. The Democrats are claiming Ham ilton county by a large plural ity and on account of its fourteen members of the legislature they alsv claim a majority in that body for th< election of a United States senator. The Republicans claim a large plurality on their state ticket and that they wil have a majority In the legislature with out Hamilton county. occasionally mey maae"none. IJOTV men ye.re on hand and placed several wagers. Outlook in. Other States. New York, Nov. 2. — The election In N^ew Jersey promises to be decided upon a very light vote. There is no state officer to be elected this year and the election hir.ges largely upon local and county issues. Six counties elect stata •enators who will hold over to vote ton • successor to James Smith as United Stales senator. Providence. R. I., Xov. 2.—Municipal elections are being held in all the five Khode Island cities—Providence, Newport, Pawtucket, Woonsocket and Central Falls. With the exception of Xew- port a close fight is expected in every city. Philadelphia, Xov. 2.—The campaign just closed has been 'Vn exceptionally quiet one, the only feature having been the aggressive canvass of Rev. Dr. Swallow, the Prohibitionist candidate for state treasurer, which has beea wholly on the lines of reform in politics with little or no reference to the liquor question. Republican Chairman Elkin predicts a Republican plurality of 177,- 4SO. Democratic Chairman Garman says that the Democratic candidate will have a plurality of 15,000. Boston, Nov. 2.—The voters in this state today will choose a governor, lieutenant governor, four other state officials, eight councilors and members of both branches of the great and general court of legislature, composed of forty senators and 23S representatives. Louisville, Nov. 2.—Ex-Senator Joseph C. S. Blackburn and other'posslble candidates for the United States senate in 1900 when Senator Lindsay's term will expire are taking the greatest possible interest in the election of members of the legislature, expecting to gain an advantage. . The Democrats .have fused with Populists and Republicans with, gold Democrats, and both parties are very hopeful of victory- Baltimore, Nov. 2.—The Republican and Democratic- leaders worked hard last night preparing for the election today. The mayoralty and a majority of county offices are to be filled, two judgos are to be elected and a United States senatorship is at stake, as the noxc legislature will elect a successor to Gorman. Democratic leaders unhesitating- THOSE SEALS United States, Russia and Japan '• to Sign a Treaty About Them This Week, IMPOETAIIT FACT NOT AMOOTOED What Does the Treaty Provide in Case John Bull Declines to Absolutely Prohibit Pe- lat'ic Sealing?—A Hint of Retaliation Against Canada and a Complaint That Her Expert Has Jf&t Appeared—fo*»ible Objection to Diplomat Hauillu. Washington. Nov. 2.—It is expected that a treaty or convention between the United States, Russia and Japan will be formally signed and executed at the state department during the present week, carrying out the proposition be- tore the Behring sea conference for a. suspension of pelagic sealing. The present understanding is that the signing of this document will occur within the next few days. It will represent the completed efforts of the conference and with the signing concluded the conference will adjourn. The terms of the treaty or convention will follow the lines of the proposition considered by the conference and referred with favorable recommendation to the authorities at St. Petersburg: and Toklo. The essential feature of the treaty or convention is for the suspension of pelagic sealing '.or such a period aa will permit tne seal herds to revive. The period of this suspension is not disclosed. Canada Stand* in the Way. The attitude which Great Britain will assume toward the proposition and the treaty which is to taKe its place is awaited with much interest. Thus far he British authorities have not been informed as to what the conference proposes doing. At the same time the British expert, Professor Darcy Thompson, has had several long talks with 'oster and Hamlin, and these have been ly state Jhat if the legislature is Demo- of such a satisfactory nat ure that it Ruy«l Baku the food pan.

NEW YORK. All Over the State It Is the Same Fight aa in tlie Metropolis. Albany, N. Y., Nov. 2.—In every municipality of the state a vigorous, bitter campaign has been prosecuted for municipal control, and the blanket bal lot, instead of proving a deterrent to the independent nomination, has led seemingly to the creation of more parties than ever before had a place in the elections of the cities. These things, enough in themselves to claim all the attention of the voters, are further multiplied by the addition of a. campaign for judge of the court of appeals that has stirred the two great parties to very active efforts in the endeavor not" so much to gain the place for the candidate as to demonstrate in this off year of state politics that the party of one or the other is dominant. The Democrats hope to demonstrate that they are getting back to a normal state and recovering from the landslide* of the past few years and the Republicans seek to show that such is not the case. The assembly contests, lend some more flavor to the struggle, although there are no expressions from the Democrats that would lead to the belief that they expect to control that branch of the legislature, .but only to reduce the overwhelming- majority that for -two yearshasgiven the .Republicans so much power. New York. Xov. 2.—The most sensational political campaign in the bJs- tory of Xew York city ended last night. Xot a day for the past month has been devoid of exciting incidenta A few- months ago it seemed as though there would be a straight fight between the Republicans and Democrats with the odds in favor of the latter on account of the opposition to the Raines liquor law, but it finally developed into a four- cornered fight. At the campaign headquarters last night each party professed tie utmost, confidence in victory today. The betting favored Van Tf 5" c k"' the Tammany candidate for mayor. •?eth Low rankinrr next. Old politicians were quoted as saying- that the vote for /our.g George will not be large. Those *-ho made predictions differed in no way from the claims stated in these dis- satches yesterday—each was certain 3f the election of his own man. At one of the numerous George meetings held last night Father Ducey made an address in the course of whicn he said: "The recent shooting at Hazletcn was murder. I say again It was mu<ier in the eyes of God and justice. But capital !s back of it and there trill be no legal punishment for those murders \*re below." The Hoffman House lobby -was filled with politicians and betting- men. The odds on Van Wyck, whose supporters seemed to have money to burn, wera 2 to I, with an occasional better offeiv EeEublicacs were accepting Nebraska ^Republicans Have a Strong Fo. —Denver's Big Ticket. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 2,—Political managers for both parties in this city on the eve of election expressed supreme confidence as to the result of the battle, iut In the absence of a poll of the state It is a question on what they base their alaims of victory. With an admitted idmirable organization and perfect harmony in the ranks the Republicans must nevertheless face a compact fusion of all elements favorable to free silver, which a year ago carried the state by 11,000 plurality. The National Democrats and Prohibitionists are not serious factors in the race and it is given out that an understanding exists whereby the National Democrats will vote almost solidly for the Republican nominees. Bryan made his final appeal in behalf of the fusion ticket yesterday, speaking in Lincoln; Omaha and a number of smaller towns. Denver, Nov. 2.—Although there were but three- candidates for judge of the supreme court, the only state office to be, filled at the election today, the ballot to be voted, in this city contains.twenty- two different tickets, bearing the names of nominees for county office, s Parties with no standing, without formality of convention, forced their emblems upon the ballot for but one purposer-to confuse the voters. Many voters, disgusted with the state of affairs, declare they will remain away from the poll. Tre contest between Charles T. Hay (Rep.) and William H. Gabbert (Dem. and Pop.> for judge of the supreme court appears to be very close. Even money Is being wagered on the result SPLIT IN ORGANIZED LABOR. Bronsrlit Abont by the Alien tabor I-aw» Passed by the La«t Congress. Ottawa, Can., Nov. 2.—As a result of De Barry's vigorus anti-alien work on the frontier there is a growing movement all along the line among Canadian trades unions to sever connection with the parent bodies in the states. Recently there was formed here a new body to take the place of the Knights of Labor in Canada. It is known as the Canadian. Federation of Labor, and is prosecuting a vigorous anti-American campaign among the Knights of Labor assemblies in Ontario and Quebec, the two provinces where unionism is strong. The federation claims that the alien labor laws passed by the United States congress were the result of agitation, by United States trades unions, and :hey, as Canadians, therefore, do not care to have any further nominal friendliness, where none exists. The secession of the Ancient Order of United Workmen from the jurisdiction of the supreme lodge in the United States is a 'air Indication of the feeling that is prevailing in Canada with regard to the alleged antipathy of Americans to Canada. Most of the Bullets Found Billet*. Spokane, "Wash.. Nov. 2.—As the result of a shooting affray in front of the oeur d'Alene theatre, Johnny Bull, an eld-time gambler, was shot three times, and probably fatally wounded, "Fiskey" H. S.) Barnett, manager of the thea.tre, had a finger shot off and his face filled with burned powder, while his wife, bet- er known by the stage name of Ida ;iayton. received a bullet through her .houlder. was believed an amicable understanding would be reached by all parties concerned if Canada showed a disposition to assent to the agreement. But Canada still stands in the way, and the continued absence of the Canadian expert, Macoun, Is regarded in the light of a diplomatic discourtesy, not only to the United States but also to the British government. The foreign office named him with Professor Thompson as an expert to come to Washington. Muy Object to HuinHii'* Presence. Professor Thompson came at once, but Macoun has remained away. The Ottawa government has sen£ no explanation of this action, and apparently is oblivious to all inquiries. It is thought the presence of Hamlin as the American expert in the British-American meeting 1 may be the cause of Canada's inaction. Lord Salisbury specifically stated in accepting the proposition for a meeting that it was to be one between "experts." To this end the British expert Thompson and the Canadian expert Macoun were named.it being expected that the United States would name as its expert Professor Jordan. Hamlin was named, however, and it is understood that this is viewed rather in the light of naming a counselor, or diplomat, as the United Slates representative, rather than an expert. Question of Annihilating: tlie Seals. No mention is made in the convention of the killing of seals in case Great Britain and Canada do not co-operate. It is pointed out'that Russia and Japan could -not adopt • retaliatory steps against Canada, as they have no border interests with her. Any action against Canada, therefore, must be taken by the United States alone. The plan of killing of the seals has been embodied in tfie bill before congress, but it has not come before the conference as a step now to be taken by the allied powers. Foster gave, a reception yesterday to the Russian, Japanese and British delegates and experts. Professor Thompson was present, but.the British embassy officials were not represented owing: to the month of mourning imposed by the death of the Duchess of Teck. MILLIONS INVOLVED IN A SALE. UNION AND NON-UNION RIOT. Pistol* Are I7sed and M Xumber Wounded* but Nobody Killed. Scottsdale, Pa., Nov. 2.—A riot occurred here last night in which Henry Gillespie, John Jordan wid Minuger Skimp, of the Scottdale Iron and Steel eompany, were badly injured. Sunday i union man. Frank Keltz, wu beate* lato insensibility by non-union iro» Workers, and Keltz' fellow workmen vowed vengeance. Manager Skimp fearing trouble, when his men quit work formed thirty .or forty of them In line and marched up Pittsburg street. At Broadway a^large crowd had gathered and four of'the marchers with \draw* revolvers stepped to the front and ordered the crowd back. Just then some one threw a' stone into the crowd of non-unionists. ' This was responded to by a shot, followed by a regular fusillade, fully fifty shots being fired, nearly all coming from the non-union men. Manager Skimp was shot In the left foot and was struck by a stone or brick on the left side, of the head, and is seriously, though not dangerously, wounded. Henry Gillespie was shot through the right arm, the ball passing through an artery, and he almost bled to death before the wound could be dr«ss«d. John Jordan had three fingers shot off. Several others were slfg-htiy injured by being- struck with stones. From the number of shots fired it is almost miraculous that no or.e waa killed outright.: Gillespie claims that when theshcotlng commenced he started for a place of safety. He claim? that he was fired at by Manager Skimp. Thomas Gillespie, a brother of Henry. stated that he saw Manager Skimp fire three shots in the direction of Henry. Gillespie will swear out a warrant for the arrest of Manager Skimp for felonious shooting. Four non-union men were arrested. PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ROBBED Lt At, Chicago May Find Their Property They Will Apply to Thin Man. Juneau, WIs., Nov. 2.—Just before he was released from the state's prison at Waupun Samuel D. Roby, of the town of Elba, near here, won the confidence of a fellow-convict. The latter confessed that he was one of a gang of CbJeagq..thieves, and that being unable to dispose of the booty in the city they had brought it to Elba and buried it on a farm." Following the convict's directions Roby has been digging on the farm, and has already recovered nineteen gold watches and a number of ring* and diamond pins, the whole being valued at between $2,000 and 15,000. Roby says the best of the booty is yet to be found. He will turn over th« property to the owners upon proper identification. The prisoner who disclosed the information is W. T. J. Blackerby. and he Is serving a four-year sentence for a burglary committed In th« town of Elba. Bant Robbers Break JaiL Deadwood, S. D..

Union Pacific Bid in by Interested Partie* for Its Government Debt. Omaha, Nov. 2.—The Union Pacific road proper, including the buildings and all that goes to operate the system, was yesterday morning sold to the reorganization committee for the sum of $.'•3,525,532.76. This amount does not include the sinking fund in the hands of the government, and .taking this to be $4,036,400, the amount stated in the government decree covering- the sale of the road, the total paid for the property waa S57.5W,932.76. There were no other bidders, and the road went to the reorganization committee without any opposition. The sale of the road was in itself one of tha most tame and uninteresting performances possible to imagine. It was advertised to take place in front of the Uraon Pacific freight house at the junction of Ninth acd Jones streets at 11 o'clock, and it was just one minute after that time when Master in Chancery Cornish, who was to act as auctioneer, took his place on the low stone step in front of the Ninth street entrance to begin '.he sale. Congressional ZJbrary Is Open. Washington, Nov. 2.—The new congressional library, which has been In COKGBESS1O1UX LTBBJkBY B.CELDLK4, ise-roir. course of construction for the past six years, was opened to the public yesterday.

U. proceedings yesterday. The report was strongly in favor of retaining: a. control- ing interest in that property. After considerable debate and a number of motions one to adopt the report wa» carried easily. Miss Will&rd said her plan was to go to some rich people A'ho- bad been friendly with her and ask them to help her. A resolutlcn was than adopted to support ihe effort t& "save the temple."
