THE EVENING NEWS. TEN CENTS A WEEK. VOLUME XV. NO. 3. LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 4. 1895. FOR THE GREAT BATTLE The Contending Political Factions Lining Up. THINK THE VOTE WILL BE LIGHT, Leader liellevo That It WiU be Surprising If th Totiil Vote Cst Keaehes 170,0O Republicans Think That Maxwell's Vte "Will Not It each 0,OOl) PopulUtft Hopeful. But for Only Part of the Ticket. The active work of the fall campaign is practically over, although none of the contending .forces will abate their watchfulness and activity until the vote is counted tomorrow evening. There has been less of enthusiasm manifested in this campaign than in any that has agitated the State for several years. Every effort has been exerted by the leaders to arouse the old-time interest, hut it has fallo:: upon unresponsive ears. The leaders of all the leading parti s admit this. Campaigning has been extremely unsatisfactory and difficult work. There have been no fifes and drums and street parades, and little to attract attention. Up around republican state headquarters an air of confifijist satisfaction over the situation is manifest, and the force that lingers around the rooms is not losing any sleep or missing any meals. It is believed there that there will be a very light vote polled this year. This is largely due to the fact that removals from the state have largely diminished the voting strength, but back of this, the lack of enthusiasm will cut quite a figure. The total vote of the state a year ago was 210,000, and that of the previous year, when the election was similar to this, was 1S9.000. It Is be-HeTed that the vote this year will not run above 175,000 and may run as low-as 165,000. Here In this city the campaign has lieen much hotter than over the most of the state. Both sides have entered into the fight with a determination to win. But even in the face of that fact the registration is but little over 5,600, while jt year ago the vote on governor in this city was 6,700. The falling-off is much heavier in the major portion of the tate. It Is contended at republican tate headquarters that Maxwell will not receive more than 50,000. No estimate will be given as to the probable size of Judge Norval's plurality, owing to the uncertainty as to the size or tne total vote. That he will have a plurality no one of the republicans seems to doubt for an instant. It may be 25.000 and it may be as low as 10,000. Tobias Castor says that the man who receives 63.000 votes tomorrow will be elected. He don't think Maxwell's -. nt-will go above "0.000. He also says that Mahoney. the administration democrat, will receive 0,Cu0 votes, while Phelps, the free silver democratic candidate, will n get more than S.0H.'. It is known, however, that Phelps wil recehe quite a large number of populist votes on the free silver issue, while there will also be many democrats of both factions voting for Maxwell, and possibly some republicans. Every is being pulled by the administration men to get out the full stn nch o: the administration faction for Mahoney. Locally, the republicans art manifesting the utmost confidence that the entire republican cn-nty ticket w:il be elected. For some days the opposition has been decidedly or. the defensive, and the republican rallies have Peer, marked by increased rarnestness an'' enthusiasm. The leaders have r aliz..-; all along that t'.v y hnv a hard fisrK on hand to d-.f. at MiPer and r.p.k- but th. y feel C-r.i they r.E'v pra.-tic.-.'ly ac-compksh that result.

Detective LmuKdou lnTetljtate .the Burrows Boy's Disappearance. Detective Langdon has been looking Into the report made by James M. Bar-rowt, that his son is missing and that he fears the boy has been made the victim of foul play by a man living in Crescent Glen. The matter was fully aired In The News the other day. but the detective has made some Interesting discoveries. He found that the suspected man and the Barrows boy had had trouble over a dog, resulting in the boy shooting the beast. This angered the man and he is said to have sworn vengeance. Soon after the slaying of the dog and before the disappearance of the boy there was more trouble during which the boy pulled a gun on the man and threatened to blow several kinds of brains out of him. It is the impression, however, among the people in the vicinity that there has been no foul play and the police will doubtless i1-op the- case. A girl who was well ac quainted with Barrows said that the boy had told her a short time before his disappearance that he was getting riied of. farm life and would have to ieix.;- soon, and this strengthens I theory of the detective. Some- peo the neighborhood allege that i , was semcv.-'.iut weak in his ri they think that ho has w.mdei y in a fit of atrial: FUN PROMISED. A 'ew Complication in the Scvent -i t Ciui The last rally ot the campaign will be held in Bc-nadom's hall under the auspices of the Seventh ward republican club this evening. This is the postponed meeting of which notice was given last week and about which a slight misunderstanding arose from the fact that there are two clubs in that ward with the same name. Republicans are urged to-attend this meeting and listen to speeches by I. W. Lansing, Sam Low, John Trompen and others, and see and get acquainted with many of the candidates. The above is the substance of a notice handed The News for publication today, but those who do go out to the meeting may expect to have some little fun that Is not down on the program as printed. It seems the other Seventh ward club known to fame as Ralph E. Johnson's club is bitterly opposed to the old or regular club.and report has it that Councilman Ewan and vv'es Cochran have rented the hall for tonight, and have given instructions that It shall not be opened until they say so These two politicians are members of Ralph's faction, and the intention is to shut out the other fellows. The lat ter, however, have a card uP their neth e- sleeve which they intend to play thi: evening. PAINTED THE TOWN. t'nivcrsitj- Hnvs Do Pairasc to the Hi; Srhc.i.I !?r..!d n:,-.

BEGUN BY DOING POOR OLD MO, Omaha Given a Touch of University High Life Four Thousand People Witness a Hot (lame in Which the Ozark Tigers Were Subdued-Lincoln High School Also Wins. How Jt All Came About. If Omaha had never been ripped up one street, down another and se ernl times crossways, it had that experience Saturday night. The people of Omaha certainly found out what college enthusiasm is. The real reason was that the '94 winners of the intercollegiate association are on a fair road to win the pennant again. But what added more to their rejoicing was that the Nebraska team had decided t beat Missoui i something it had never done or die. and die hard at that. T"on the -too enthusiasts had decided mat if vlMs ul an sons, snape-s ami wcil.i lulp win the game. Miss.j.iri would, come on. ..t the .--mall end o." tin horn. A crowd of 2."0 sluck-nts accompanied the team on the 10 o'clock train statin - day morning. About iuO mere joined hem at the depot at Omaha. A double ine was formed and marched to the Merchants' Hotel. At almost every cr- halt was made and one of the nu merous yells given. Between tunes they practiced songs. Over 4.000 people witnessed the game tnd all pronounced it the hardest-fought tnd best game ever played in the west. The Tl. rs, as the Missouri bovs were called uj. account of the yellow and black striped sweaters, entered the field confident of victory. But the scarlet and cream colors were all gathered together and under the leadership of John Dixon, the wearers went through a systematic course-of yelling that had its share In winning the game. Probably the most fitting yell, considering Missouri's colors, was the simple "Oh my! Oh myl How we twist the Tiger's tail!" Then there were several tally-ho parties floating the blue of Yale, Harvard's crimson and Cornell and Princeton col ors. But the scarlet and cream predominated and waved triumphant above them all. In the first part of the game Missouri made several end runs of twenty to twenty-five yards, aided by great interference, which our halves and ends soon learned to break. On one end Fair and Whipple smashed to pieces the interference which had enabled Missouri to make long end runs against the De-Pauw and Purdue teams. On the other end Shedd threw hinisel'; savage!; p.sainst the Missouri backs and Kiggins r.i-v.r failed to get his man. Wiggins did the star tackling of the day. with all due respect to Spocner's and Thorpe's excellent work in that line. Of course. Spook Spooiu-;- played irs own snappy game, making on!-- en-fumble. Then there was Bu-i J Th. be st thing that can be said r.f Jones :s that lie played his ti.'aa! game. !'':- V. rybody knows that he is prohab-;. " most reliable line n-.i- t- U.t'i h"s ever had. After the third down, bos st-me was apain st'ain'-n. nad it was thought that lie vo-i, fcrj. to Ic-V" the game. But as the l-.;:d. eVe-ers and cries for "Jonosie" arose, mnhir.": short of death could ken htm out of tN-game, which he finished, practically on one leg. Every member on the team de--.- es credit for th-- work he did. Xn--.!:: r.- and at no time was the titm Fvar.?. tric.-'l to jmv:. was caught by MelforJ. and Missouri was not given a trial at goal. Here the first half ended. Missouri 10: Nebraska C. At the beginning of the second half, the Tigers kicked off for thirty-live yards, and again were curried back ten by Fair. By an end run of fifteen yards by Wiggins, and line bucking by Wilson. Shedd. Fair and Hayward, the ball was finally pushed over Missouri's line and Shedd kicked goal. Nebraska 12: Missouri !0. Hvans kicked off for thirty yards, carried back ten by Hayward. Hy bucks the ball was carried to the center on downs, and lost there. IJut when Missouri had the ball they could gain nothing and again Nebraska took it. On tin-third down Fair kicked for forty-live yards. Alice got the ball, but Thorpe downed him where he was. Missouri lost two yards on the criss-cross, but made slow gains to center by bucking Twice did the ball go from Nebrasi.-i to Missouri and back again on no g.nns. Again Missouri tried the criss-cross, but lost, Gibson being beautifully tackle,; by Shedd. Again the ball went to Nebraska. Shedd made five yards, immediately followed by Hayward. ilinuub the line for thirty yards, but tit.- ball was fumbled. Missouri was forced to kick, and made twcnty-IHe yards. Steady gains were made toward .Missouri's goal, and with Packaid s run u' thirty-live yards, the ball was within seven yards of the line when time v:i-called. Score: Nebraska 12: .Missouri in. .Mi s:-,nU1e:.s of t, their backi Th. .-xpi . the impression ire ailed, even anion..-the mumliors of the team, that the oiltt-; were against the Nebraska boys. Therefore it was. that when the great red light was swung from the flagstaff at the university, indicating the result of the contest, there was a rush for t he-campus and the exultant yell Unit arose from that vicinity could be 'heard for blocks. In the midst of the enthusiasm burned a big bonfire and in due time the joyous crowd rounded up at the home of Chancellor MacLean, who was ready to share its fervent enthusiasm. The Lincoln high school team went out to Crete Saturday afternoon and engaged the high school eleven of that city with results disastrous to the latter, the score standing 18 to 6 In favor of Lincoln. 60 SEE FOR YOURSELVES.

The Chicago ttaveling man makes no pretense of being an angel, but he has sisters of his own, and after he had found from the girl's conversation that the two were in the hands of two men who seemed determined to ruin them, he pleaded with them to forego their mad purpose. It was only after a long talk with the girls that the Chicago man became convinced that they were up to that time pure and It did not take him long to convince the girls that nothing but misery would follow th -step they were taking.
