Reasonably Sure to Give Mc
, . Kinjey.a Majority.
A aUcfctr Difference ln'Four Years
What Prosperity Has Doae
for the City.
SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. SL (Staff Cor
respondence ) Four years ago Spokane
went crazy on. the silver question, and
gave, the enormous majority of SOOO for
Bryan. Next Tuesday it is probable that
the county will go for McKlnley by a
safe vote. Spokane Is therefore crazy
no longer. Its recovery from Its Intense
aberration of 1S96 has been comparatively
sudden, but it is complete. You do not
hear anybody say anything about silver.
Even Wheat Chart Jones has given up
and gone to the more congenial latitudes
of Butte, where there are a few of them
left Down in the headquarters of tho
McKlnley Club Is a 4arge picture of Mc
Klnley inset Into a suggestive back
ground comprised solely of a $20 gold
piece, and the strange device. "Gold
Standard" surmounts it all. True, Dem
ocratic orators still declaim, awesomely
about tho Money Power, but the average
voter Is a triflo restive over it, and- per
haps a little (sensitive about even this
vague reminder that four years ago he
really feared its dreadful might. NOW
the usual feeling Is that Spokane would
like some more tangible and satisfactory
evidence that it really exists and is in
business. There is a great deal of money
in Spokane, and many estlmablo citizens
who once thought civilization, was Im
periled and existence likely to prove a
useless monotony unless we had 18 to L
have dono very well indeed financially
under the "accursed gold standard."
These gentlemen welcome with a great
deal of heartiness and enthusiasm the in
vasion of this territory by foreign capi
tal. If it had been excluded, none of
them would have fared ao welL
At Republican headquarters they tell
curious stories about the changes four
years have wrought Tho City of Spo
kane gave Bryan, something like 1500 In
a total vote of about 6000. Now tho party
managers have no doubt at all that the
Republican ticket will get 1000 plurality, at
a low estimate, and many Republicans
expect 1500. The country will, they think,
do oa well. At Spokane Bridge, fon ex

where It was about CO for Bryan in 1S96
In the First Ward, Republican, estimates
ere for a margin of 200 In 1400 votes,
where it was two to one for Bryan. And
eo tho story goes throughout the county
and city.
The Bryan flood was so overwhelming
In 1S96 that Republicans carried just one
precln,ct In the city (by one vote) and one
in the county, and In the entire list of
public officers they rescued just a lone
Justice of the Peace. In the following
Spring- the first signs of the fusion
break-up appeared, and Olmstead (n.p.)
was elected Mayor of Spokane by 750
majority, on a Citizens' ticket The
movement was engineered by Republi
cans, and their success was so surprising
and unexpected that It fairly took 'the
fuslonists off their feet Then in
1S98, Republicans carried the county, and
elected practically all their nominees; tut
they admit that their success was due
to tho imperfections of the fusion ma
chinery. The Democrats knifed the
Populists, and the Populists the Demo
crats, and by this simple but very ef
fective method managed to put one an
other out of business. Now there Is fUB
lon under the Democratic name, and It
was brought about in this easy and fe
licitous fashion: The Populists had a
convention, and nominated a ticket, leav
ing certain blank spaces for the Demo
crats to fill In. This they learned
about with, some display of resentment
The Democrats did not like the take-lt-or-leave-It
way the Populists had of doing
business. But after splitting the air
with much impotent oratory, the Demo
crats did not leave It but took it Peace
was afterwards restored on the waters
of the angry deep, but the recollection
of the Populist ultimatum still abides In
the Democratic bosom. At Democratic
headquarters, they say they are going
to carry the county by 500 to 1000. About
700, they think, will be the proper figure.
The, election of 1S98, they declare, is no
standard for judgment as to 1900, and
Republicans admit that it Is not On
their port they regard with much satis
faction the results of a county poll,
which shows a comfortable Republican
plurality. The Democratic poll, as might
be suspected, indicates quite a different
state of affairs. It is not yet completed,
but the party managers- intimate that it
discloses a certainty of a Democratic ma
jority there, numbering: something like
750. They expect or say they expect, the
Republican margin In the city to be very
small, and thus In the final analysis ot
things they will pull out a victory.
From this abundance of testimony ot
all kinds and from all quarters I have
been able to reach a conclusion as I have
already Indicated. I "found nothing up to
this point that 1 did not expect to find.
But I discovered another thing, and
that Is that there is a somewhat more
active and healthy Frink sentiment than
I have seen elsewhere. The Republican
managers and other Republicans who are
not managers, talk about Mr. Frink's
chances with a considerable degree of en
thusiasm. It may be that the Republican
.organization beret irbicfc. Is la the hands
of John I, Wilson's friends. Is responsi
ble for thia apparent Frink sentiment; or
it may bo -that the county Is so far
-removed from the controversies -which
preceded Mr. Frink's nomination that it
was not in any way affected by them.
It may be, too, that a contrary state of
affairs exists In the country; but if it
does, I did not run across anybody in
position to know who said so. Republi
cans here do not hesitate to say that
Frink will bo freely scratched. Some
work has been done among business men
for Rogers, on the ground that ha is a
"taxpayers' candidate'; and others work
against Frink for the reason, or alleged
reason, that he Is Wilson's candidate. Un
doubtedly some votes have thus been
gained, and no one appears to have any
idea that Frlnlc will 'get as many votes
as McKlnley. But Republicans stem to
think that Rogers is going to lose some
Democratic votes because he defeated
Voorhees for renomlhatlon; other votes
because he Is said to'be a Populist masquerading-
as a DemaWat; and still other
votes because Rogers has ice water and
not blood la his vdlns. None- of thesfi
things has made anyj deep impression, as
being sound or weisrthy, but doubtless
they will net some votes.
Withal, it Is probable that In city and
country Frink will bo more generally cut
than Rogers. The grain-rate question Is
undoubtedly the niost potential factor
in Eastern Washington polities. Not
touch is said or heard about it in the
City of Spokane, but it Is of moment to
every farmer and producer; and thia is
the basis of the movement for Rogers,
who is friendly to remedial freight-rate
legislation 'and against Frink, who is said
not to bev I would not undertake to eay
that Spokane is sure to give 100 or 300
or 1000 Republican majority, or to name
any figure at all, but simply to record
my Impression that It appears reasonably
certain to go Republican. The situation
throughout all Washington Is so perplex
ing In Its details that any man may be
safely challenged to guess within 5000 or
more votes how the majorities aro to be
distributed. Many men can, of course,
estimate MoKlnley's aggregate majority
(or Bryan's, as the case may be), with
much accuracy. But it will take rare
wisdom to tell precisely where these ma
jorities are to come from. The general
belief that Washington Is going Republi
can is based on the uniform stories or
Republican gains 'in every part of the
state. That there will be variations from
this general trend no one ought to doubt
Betting Is more general here than any
where In the state. At one resort Is
posted a great variety of Republican of
fers. For example, $1000 that Frink Is
elected; $1000 that McKlnley carries Seat
tle, Tacoma and Spokane; $2000 to $1000
on McKlnley; $100 on every county in
Washington going Republican; and so
oiu It is reported that one bet of $350
to $50 was; made today that McKlnley
would be e'eotoaMapr- wafers on ""rlnk
and Rogers nAo I eon made. Two t. one
is offered on Spokane County going Re
publican. Democrats, It Is Said, demand
that Republicans wager that they will
carry at least 25 out of 27 nominees ton
the ticket The liveliest possible interest
la taken here in the 'Idaho election, and
some money, it is sold, has been wagered
that the state will go for McKlnley.

Respectful Crowds Heard
Roosevelt Yesterday.
Tie. Day Closed With a Rousing;
Meet las at Buffalo Speeches
at Other Points.
ROCHESTER, N. Y.. Oct SL Governor
Roosevelt is feeling the strain ot his con
tinued talking more more today than at
any time since he Btarted the state tour.
His chest is sore and his voice does not
carry as- well as it did. The sun came
out just after the Roosevelt special left
Rochester, giving promise of a pleasant
day. The first stop was made at Brock
port Here the Governor said:
"Mr. Bryan invokes the Declaration ot
Independence as applying- to the Philip
pines. Nebraska was acquired by Thom
as Jeffe-son without tha consent of ih
Indians In It and he ought to have
known how to apply tho Declaration rt
Independence because he wrote It He
cannot afford to let 'Mr. Bryan's principles-
and tho present Bryanlzed Democ
racy continue a formidable danger to
American political life. I appeal to you
not merely to beat It, but to stamp It
under foot so that no similar appeal will
ever be made In our time. While we can
afford to differ on questions of policy
wo cannot afford as good Americans to
differ on the underlying principles the
lack of which makes any party whatever
It is a standing- danger to the country."
At Holly It was raining. Nevertheless
the Governor spoke to a great crowd. He
"We do not want to cut Into the Na
tional honor by cutting in two the Na
tional debt If Mr. Bryan's policies ever
should be enacted Into law they would 1
bear with an especial weight of woe up
on the very people concerning whom he
affects to be most interested.
"Mr. Bryan speaks of polygamy In the
Sulu Islands and says It ought to be
stopped. Why, his proposal Is to estab
lish a protectorate over those Islands,
and therefore guarantee both slavery and
polygamy in Sulu."
At Medina.
LOCKPORT. N. Y., Oct 3L At Medina,
where his train stopped for 20 minutes,
Governor Roosevelt stepped from his car
to a temporary platform. The rain had
ceased, and the Governor occupied the
full time In addressing the crowd. Ho
devoted moat ot his attention to impe-'
riallsm and militarism. Whllo the Gov
ernor was talking, a man in the audience
said: ,
"Governor, I would like to have you
explain the trust question?"
"What about the coal employes In Penn
sylvania?" asked another man.
"One at a time," said the Governor.
''As tothe coal employes of Pennsylvania,
they have won a strike for an Increase in
wages. Do you think they would have
won that strike four years ago?"
"No, no," shouted the crowd.
The Governor then discussed the trust
question at length, referring to Mr. Bry
an's remedy of taking the tariff off ar
ticles used by the trusts, and the remedy
of the Republican party to get at he
evil by Constitutional amendment In
speaking of militarism, the Governor re
ferred to the posts located near Qswego
and Buffalo, and said the sentiment there
was rather for an Increase of tho soldiers
stationed there. He cited the fact that
regulars had been stationed at the forts
around New York for 113 years, and said:
"Some little time ago a number of our
citizens got up a petition to the War De
partment to increase the number of sol
diers In these forts, because the existing
number "was not enough to keep the big
guns, clean.
"I want to ask If any of ou have ever
seen a single imperialist I have not
found one from the Rockies to the Atlan
tic I have met lots of expansionists. I
am one myself."
At Lockport.
Reaching Lockport Governor Roosevelt
was driven In a carriage to the Opera
House, which was filled, while hundreds
had been unable to gain admission. The
Governor's address was devoted In large
part to the question of prosperity.
"Now, as to Air. Bryan s propnecies.
sald the Governor, "here is exactly what
Mr. Bryan said In his Minneapolis speech:
The gold standard means dearer money,
cheaper property, harder times, more peo
ple out of work, more people destitute,
more people desperate and more crime.
Now look around In your city. In your
own state, and compare with those proph
ecies their fulfillment
"Mr. Bryan says he Is the champion of
the people. I think It is a mighty poor
man of whom Mr. Bryan is champion.
Mr. Bryan says the trusts flourish more
than they did four years ago. He is
quite right Everything- flourishes- more
than four years ago A good year for
crops la a good year for weeds. Hoe out
the weeds, but don't piow-unaer ine crops.
I "ere m tnis crry you nave oag lactones
jtxe& your mechanicsr are all employed,
. v C '
Don't try to help the workmen by shut
ting up the factories."
The Governor for the first time during
his New York State trip was besieged
with ciiculars asking why he had signed
certain local legislation, particularly
amendments to the Lockport charter, and
If he bad not refused to grant a hearing
to the labor unions. The questions were
not asked in the assemblage place, but
merely thrown into the streets In printed
form. The Governor said he did not feel
that he was compelled to answer these
At Nlncara Calls.
BUFFALO, N. Y.. Oct SL At Niagara
Falls the Roosevelt train was greeted
with the Governor's saluate of 19 guns,
and the Governor was taken to tho
Opora-House, whore he adresscd a large
audience. The chairman Introduced him
as the friend of the worklngman and a
workingman himself. The Goernor said:
"I do not believe that In this campaign
I have been Introduced In a manner that
pleases me so much, because I do not be
lieve any American is worth his salt un
less he is a worklngman. Work comMi
in many different ways, and I honor
every form of honest work In others, and
I claim In return the right to be treated
as being as much of a worklngman my
self as any of my fellows. If a man does
not work, he cannot do anything for his
.fellows, and he cannot do anything for
himself. If there exists a class in the
community which, instead of regarding
with envy, ve ought to regard with that
pity which is akin not to love, but to
contempt it Is the idle class, and I do
ont care whether the idle class is- the
gilded butterfly at the top or the tramp
below; in either case, the man who will
not work, but who sits down with the
purpose of making his work the pursuit
of pleasure or the absence of effort; in
either not only is the man useless to his
neighbors, but he Is not even able to
gratify his own mean ambition; for, mind
you, a man who deliberately devotes his
life to the pursuit of pleasure gets Infi
nitely less of it than tho man who tries
to do his work and then finds that the
greatest possible pleasure comes In the
sense Of work well done."
When the Governor finished hla remarks
a gray-whiskered man in the audience
arose and said that, In, all respect and
all sincerity, and all honor to the Gov
ernor of the Empire State, he would like
to have the privilege of asking him a
cduple of questions. The Governor Imme
diately arose and nodded his assent.
"Do you believe In taxation without
representation.?" asked the man.
"What do you mean?" asked the Gov
ernor. "Do you bellevo In taxation without
representation?" again repeated the
I questioner.
"You take the census statements which
have been published in the papers, and I
think you will find the Indians are the
only ones not taxed," said the Governor,
which reply was followed by a howl of
"We are not Indians. Two years ago"
I But the interrupter got no further. O'ics
of "Shut up!" "Put him out'" came from
different parts of the halL from th-so
who seemed Impatient at the Interrup
tion of the meeting.
At Tonawanda. the last stop of the
Roosevelt train before reaching Buffa'o.
a large crowd gathered. The Governor
addressed them from a stand near the
train, speaking In the same strain as
he had at other places during the day.
At Buffalo.
BUFFALO, N. Y., Oct 3L The Roose
velt ,-traln arrived in this city shortly
after 4 o'clock, after making a stop at
Black Rock, an Industrial suburb of Buf
falo, and the northbound railway center
of the city. Tho Governor was accorded a
splendid reception at this place and ad
dressed a few remarks to the laboring
people. From the time of his arrival un
til the time of retirement there was on
continuous ovation. The streets through
which he had to pass on his way from
the station were crowded with people.
It had been planned that the Governor
should hold a reception this afternoon,
because of the early hour of hla arrival,
but he was so fatigued with the day's
work that he compromised by address
ing the assembled people as a whole,
explaining that he was deeply touched
by the magnificent reception which had
been, accorded him, and that he desired
to1 thank them for It Behiff booked to
make three speeches this evening, he
said he "would not make a speech at that
time, but hoped to aee them at one of
the mceetlngs.
Governor Roosevelt spoke at three
meetings tonight One on the Hast Side
the industrial portion of the city, was
an open-air affair, and so many people
were gathered that Itss than one-half ot
them could hear the speaker. Another
followed In a small hair, the ma

Immense convention hall, which was
filled to the doors. In addition to touch

the election returns for Bryan don't tally

"I don't see anything wrong with thnt
suggestion. Senator Hill, I believe, sug
gested a baseball bat as being peculiarly
appropriate to render justice to a corrupt
election judge. In my own opinion tho
best way Is for Democrats to be at the
polls when they aro opened and to re
main there in good, strong relays until
the count is completed. It should be the
duty of these Democrats to watch the
judges and the count, and to see to It
that no fraud is committed, and If Any
fraud Is attempted, to stop it then and
"The Democratic party Is opposed to
violence, but at the same time I feel war
ranted in saj ing that the Democrats .fully
Intend to reap the fruits of their victory.
If Intimidation Is attempted at the polls,
or fraudulent counting tried by election
judges, there will be Democrats in the
vicinity ready to take just such action as
may be necessary to stop It There will
be neither intimidation at the polls, ballot-box
stuffing nor fraudulent counting
this year. If either is attempted. It will
bo stopped there and then. And If any
one gets hurt in this process of preven
tion, I hope It will not be the honest
man who Is doing his duty fairly and
well. The Democrats have made an hon
est campaign. We have appealed, to the
heads and haarts ot the American peo
ple. We have won the light, and, by
heaven, we will not be defrauded out of
our victory by the chicanery of election
judges. If our Republican friends will be
honest, there will bo no trouble, but in
timidation at the polls or attempted dis
honesty In the count will bo met by such
methods as may be necessary and en
tirely effectl-ve."
