mystery about the entire affair, and one
particularly sensational rumor is afloat.
The body of the victim was frightfully
jnantrled by theexplosion, and death must
have come instantly. It is believed the
bomb was placed there with the intention
of killing John F. Andrus. brother of
the dead man, who is many times a mil

that Andrus was experimenting with a
bomb of his own invention, intended for

IN TIIK CLOSE .STATES
The Post Givs an Account of Ilryan and
3IcKiHley Chances in Doubtful States
Chance Favor Kepublii ;tas.
. Wheeling, Oct. 25. The situation in
West Virginia at this time is that the
heaviest vote in the history of the State
will be polled, ami the chances are de
cidedly favorable to the Republicans.
Among the campaign managers the re
publicans seem to have the most confi
dence, and their poll of the counties
shows that they have ml ?'. ,r
their claim of a plurality of votes.
Chairman Dawson says that the plural
ity will not fall short of that of 1S94,
which was i;,.o.:o. lie also claimed all
lour Congressional districts.
The Democrats concede the First
District, and claim the State by about
8,000 plurality. The Populist-Democratic
fusion, on both State unci Na
tional tickets, is now complete, but
Republican managers claim it will not
figure largely, as the sound money
Democratic vote, they say, will out
number Populists, who only cast 3,500
votes in 1S9.; and 4,000 in 1S92.
The Democratic Committee say that
a secret poll taken by them proves the
falsity of Republican claims. The State
is claimed by Republicans by a majori
ty of 7,000.
Indianapolis, Oct. 25. The leaders
of both parties here are making ex
travagant claims for publication.
Chairman Gowdy says that the State
will give its electoral vote to McKin
ley, and that the Republican State tick
et and legislative candidates are equal
ly safe. He will talk of nothing short
of 40,000 majority for McKinley. Chair
man Martin asserts with equal confi
dence that Bryan will carry the State.
He does not enter into details, but is
clearly looking for a landslide. Indi
ana is more rampant for Bryan to-day,
than at any time since the campaign
A level headed Republican who has
stumped the State said to-day that he
expected McKinley to carry the State
by 10,000 majority. He thought if the
Republicans controlled the Legislature
it would be a very slender margin. He
admitted a big republ ican defection
among the farmers, and thought this
might reach 15,000 votes. His esti
mate of the gold Democratic bolt was
20,000. He said the Democrats in
many sections were "Bryan crazy,"
and he had never before known se
much feeling in an Indiana campaign.
Raleigh, Oct. 25. It is generally ad
mitted that the Republican candidates
for Governor and Lieutenant Governor
and the fusion candidates for the other
State offices will be elected in tlrs
State. The total vote will be not less
than 300,000. The fusion vote two
years ago for Congressmen was 150,000
and the Democratic vote was 126,000.
The new election law will increase the
combined Republican and Populist
vote to ico.coo. The fusion of the
Democrats and Populists on Bryan
will run his vote greatly beyond the
vote for Watson for Governor.
Nearly all the Populists of Republi
can .antecedents ui'l vote for McKinly.
The result for President depends upon
the size of the gold Democratic vote,
the number of Democrats who will not
vote for the Bryan Watson-electors,
.and the middle-of-the-road Populists,
who will not vote for the Bryan-Sewal!
electors. What the defection from
these sources will be cannot be calcu
lated. It may be enough to give the
State to McKinley, but the chances fa
vor Bryan. The Republicans tire solid
for McKinley and are confident that
goldbug Democratic vote will throw
the State to McKinley.
KK NT l' CUV.
Louisville, Oct. 25. The outrage on
Secretary Carlisle at Covington, the
great sound money demonstration in
this city Saturday night, participated
in by thousands from all over the Slate
and the sober second thought that h s
et in with people u no UmiK. .it a:i,
seem to have taken Kentucky from the
doubtful column and placed it solidly
in the McKinley and sound money ii :
Conservative people think th v. t
State will go for McKinley almost c-r-
400,000, an increase of 25,000 over the
highest vote yet cast in the State.
Bryan' and McKinley will come to
Louisville about even, and the majori
ty this city gives will be the majority
in this State. This will be anywhere
from S.ooo to 15,000. Palmer and Buck
ner may poll 20,000 votes in the State,
but this is even doubtful. The Cov
ington incident is changing many votes
from Palmer to McKinley.
Des Moines, Oct. 25. About the
middle of the coming week the Repub
lican State Central Committee will is
sue a statement claiming Iowa by .t
least 50,000 tmt: ritv for McKinley, and
declaring it posMb'v that the majority
may reach 90.000. The statenien will
be a serious declaration of the belief of
the committee, and will not be issued
for political effect. The silver Demo
crats have issued a statement, in which
they claim the State, but make no fig
ures. They qualify their declaration
by the statement that if McKinlev car
ries Iowa it will be by fraud. In this
statement the Populist State Commit
tee has joined. The claims by the Sil
ver Centra,! Committee is that Bryan
will carry the State.
Nashville, Oct. 25. The Democratic
managers in Tennessee enter upon the
last week of the campaign confident
that Bryan and Sewall will carry the
State, and that R. L. Taylor will be
elected Governor, along with the Leg
islature. At headquarters all sorts of
estimates are given out, but to careful
observers it would seem that Bryan
would have from 20.000 to 25,000 plu
rality, and that Taylor will win over
George N. Tillman, the Republican
Gubernatorial nominee, by a majority
a majority of at least 12,000. The Pop
ulist vote in Tennessee numbers about
24,000. Bryan will get this vote al
most solidly, while Taylor will cut into
it very largely. Some of the strongest
Populists in the State are in open re
bellion against their State Committee,
and are working for Bryan and Sewall.
From this State all silver Congressmen
will be elected.
Lincoln, Oct. 25. With election day
but a little over a week away, Nebras
ka can still be claimed among the
doubtful States, so doubtful that no
man, aside from a party manager, who
has a political reputation to sustain,
would care to hazard a certain predic
tion as to the outcome. The past week
has witnessed by far tiie hottest cam
paign ever known in Nebraska, and if
any advantage has been gained by
either side it is clearly with the Repub
licans. Speakers of national repua
tion have been poured into the State
by wholesale. Not a county has been
neglected, and the 'effect is certainly
felt. The masses of this State feel sure
it is for Bryan. The Republicans have
organized thoroughly and are doing
some hard work.
St. Paul, Oct. 25 According to the
Republican indications now point to
MeKinley's carrjing Minnesota by 15,
000 upward. Tawney will probably be
elected by an increased majority, as
will McCleary. Heatwole is e.pe ted
to get 2,000 majority. Stevens will
likely be elected by 4,000 upward.
Flether will probably be re-elected,
but the situation in Minneapolis is hard
to determine. Towne and .orri are
fighting hard in the Sixth and ',b
claim a certain victory It is i'ep..i.,.-d
that Towne's supported. at- trading
Bryan for him. Lddv 1 : the mo.-t
desperate fight, and the odds of Yo
majoritv la be overcome are tho ',1
by many too heavy.

Chairman Ta 1 ... d . " .m
State Committee, claims the State for
Bryan by a safe majority, but will give
no figures. He claims that the disaf
fection from the Republican forces on
account of the silver issue is greater
than the managers count on, more than
sufficient to offset the Palmer Demo
crats. This, with the aid the Demo
crats iiope to receive from the class
known as the laboring men will more
than turn the State from McKinley.
