At Democratic Headquarters They
Ny Ohfo is Wild for Free Coinage.
Washington, Oct. The peo
ple at Democratic headquarters were
m high gocd humor toay. Tht-y
had heard from Ohio, arc! the news
that they had jecdved tas uppar
ently of the most encouraging na
ture to them. "We Laye got Ohio

The Statf has gone wild for free

The fii-.-t that the Denjoera'ie
Committee is receiving so many re
ports frcm Ohio lends color to the
rumor that the combined silver
forcei are making a determint-d
still-hunt with the hope of captar
ing McKinley's own State. The
Republican managers in Ohio claim
not less than 100,000 majority,
while here in Washington their fig
ures on the State only reach 50,000.
