Jouuxai. Bukkau. (
Washington, D. C. Oct , 2G i.
So far as the work at tho Washington
enJ is concerned the Picsidentitil cam
paign is over. There is no loDger any
bustle sround either the Bryan or Mc
Kinley headquarters. The work ot send
ing out campaign literature is ended, and
if uny votes are changed between tnis
and electiin day it will not be btcau-:e of
anything done in Washington. The fight
is now transferred to the voting precincts.
While th':re is less hysteria displayed at
Bryyn headquarters lhaa was on tap last
week, the Democrats and Populists are
claiming that Bryan will certainly be
elected by a small majority of the tlectotal
college aud that the silver men will elect
a mnjority of the next House. Al Mc
Kinley headquaiteis, llvy sra actually
jubilant in their confidence C at McKinley
will receive the 325 electoral votes claim
ed for him by Vice-Chairu an Apslcy, of
the Repnblic iu Congressional Committee,
or more, and that the numbsr of Repub
lican membeis of the n-xt House will not
fall short of the 22 claimed by .Mr. Aps
lcy. Outside of the political headquarters
the impression has been growing in Wash
iegton for some days that McKinley will
win, not by s largs a vote as Mr. Ap?ley
claims, but still that he will win. tf o gen
erul lias this idea become that most peo
ple speak of it as a matter of eoi:i :e, and
nine men out often taken at random on
the street and asked who they thought
would be elected repl e l without any hesi
tation, "McKinley, ' and yet a majority
of these men were for Bryan During the
period covering live Presidential elections,
Phave never known the opinion of the
t result to to be so nearly unanimous iu
Washington,, This is, perhaps, largely
attributable to the wishof90 per cent, cr
more of the government employes that
Mclviuley will win, but it isn't al! ch.irne
able to that, us many who thiiik that
5k Kinley w il! win do not wish him to
do so. F.i't what ever the caus?, tha case
is just as I huve stated it.
Piesilent Cltveland has a n'ee ju'cy
plum to give to somebody in lillirg the
vacancy on the C. urt of Claims caused
by the death of Chief Justice Richardson.
This is a lifetime job that at least two
members of the cabinet Wilson and
Heibert would very willingly drop into,
and oce of them may get it, but threats
have already bceu made by the silver men
who are in a mnjority in the Senate, that
no gold Democrat will ,be confirmed if
one is nominated to the viicaucy. It wiil
be a comparatively easy matter to hold
up any nomination made until after the
4th of March il" any number of Senators
desire to do so.
It 'u thought by Georgia men in Wash
ington that the deith of Ex Speaker Crisp,
who would have been elected to the Sen
ate will piecipitate a rtd hot tight for tbe
seat iu the Senate which G.u. Gfirdon
will vacate next March. That Ex-S$cre-tary
Hoke Smith would like to be Sena
tor, is woll known, but his fiuanc.al views
will probably put the prize beyond his
reach, as the Legislature is overwhel
mingly lor silver, and Mr. Smith, while
supporting Bryan and the Chicago p at
foiin is virtually doing so uodei- compul
sion. Gov. Atkiuson, whoce honu p p
ularitv has just been attested by a re-ekc
tion, it is believed ty have the best chance
for the Sinatorship.
The members of the administration are
swiping Bryan and silver c-vety time the
can. Secretary Morton -made the price
of wheat the basis for a statement shew
ing how prosperous our wheat grower;
are under th gold stand lrd; Secretary
Oiney?s department ha niae public a
statement, laid to be a summary o! cn
sul.tr reports, showing that wages in the

POPULISTS GIVE SOME
URES ON STATE.
DemiKmffi l-ansh at Estimates. Doc
tor BlJrtt Tn'.ksi. Popnllism Costs
llALEicn. N. C Oct. 24
Many persons have asked for the lie
publican estimates of the North Carolina
vote. It is as follows: That McKinley
ill cairy trie State froai 8,000 to 15,000
. rid that E-isseh's plurality ought to be
40,000 in a 3 cornered rhjht as at present;
hat it Guthrie drops out it will be stilt
si-eater for tlussell, as 85 per cent of the
Populisms would vote for Jtussell, 10 per
cerd not vote at all and only 0 per cent
vote for Watson; tuat iu such a ount Rus
sell's m.-'jonly mi-ht be 00.000, and that
Guthrie's retirement would also help
the Melvrdey ticket. The Republican
estimate cf ihe Populist fclrtngthis 30,0Q0
riny couU;e.d that the Denn crats cannot
possibly e'ect a Congressman; that out f
1'26 tiKu.leisol tf.e lower house of the
Leu's'a u :e oivy 20 will be Democrats
:,nd of the 50 Senators only 10. The
further assert that then; an; not less than
15,000 white Republicans in the Stale;
!i.d that 55,000 white men will vote loi
MeKinle-y. They declare that there are
not a doz.m Republicans who will vote for
Bryan. Such are the Republican claims
iu their own words.
The Populists make this so:t of an er
imate: There are 223,003 white voteis,
.1 whom 5,000 are R")ublicaDS, leaving
177,000, Of tbe latter 50,000 are Popu
lists, who will vote agidnst Democrats,
caving ICS.OOO Democrats. Of these
7,500 will not vote for Bryau, making
lis vote 120,500. Add to tins o0,0fU
','oj u'is'.s and his vote is 170,500. To :tt
he Republican vote take the 109.000
ie-i'o voters, add to theai the 55,000
vliite Republicans and the result is 164,
uuO. Then to get the anti-Democratic
vote adel to the 104000 the 50.000 Popu
.ists and lite result is 210,000. Such ar;
he fiures.as given. It .vitlbo seen tn.d
he Popui'.s's actually give the Republi
ans more than lhe later claims aud they
icclare aU the lusio'n nominees nmst needs
-c elected -y enormous majorities.
The Democrat h.uh at the claims of
10th pu-ties. They decline to give figures,
