Whitman Will Probably Go for
the Nebraskan.
No Fusion Between Democrats and
Populists on County Ticket
Frinlc Will Be Scratched.
COFXiAX, Wash., Nov. 2. (Staff corre
spondence.) Whitman County was long
the bub of Populism In Washington. It
is the greatest wheat-producing country
in the state, and has many small towns
and a large rural population. It was here
that the agricultural depression of
1893-4-&t was felt with Its greatest sever
ity. Farms were plastered -with mort
gages, interest payments were in default,
taxes were overdue, and bankruptcy. Im
minent or actual, was tho common condi
tion. Land could hardly be given away,
and warehousea wore fairly bursting with
unsalable grain. The times were out of
joint, and the views of the farmer as to
the causes that produced them became
sadly warped. Populism and Its fantastic
theories seemed a remedy; at least It
gave promise of a change. Apparently It
could not be worse; It must be better.
Thus we And that in ISM the Populist
party waxed powerful and carried the
county against both the Democrats and
Republicans. Then the Democrats prac
tically disappeared, and fusion was ef
fected in 1896 on state and National tick
ets. The Populists of Whitman kept
stubbornly In the middle of the road on
their local nominees, and literally swept
the county over the Republicans and a
feeble combination between a few Demo
crats and Silver Republicans. Bryan got
1922 majority out of a total of MM votes
(more than two to one), and the Populist
county ticket was successful by plurali
ties ranging from 1000 to 100. The aver
age Populist vote was about 530Q0.
Them came the astounding change of
1S93. On state Issues there was fusion;
on county officers none. The total vote
fell from C494 to 4574, and the Republi
cans carried the county by pluralities
running from 100 to 720. The Populist vote
dropped off one-half or more, and the
Democrats managed to advertise the fact
that they were still alive and kicking (of
course, kicking) by running their inde
pendent vote up to something like 1600.
For Congress tho county split, giving
Jones (Rep.) and Lewis (Dem.) small ma
jorities. More than 900 citizens stayed at
home. That the surprising and iinexpect-
J&lUfRepablicanJlvJctory- -was. 4due ito the
growing discord among the fusionista
(never any too friendly) and to the light
poll is perfectly obvious. Tho aggregate
Republican gains were about 500 votes,
and yet they were sufficient In two years
to overcome an adverse majority of 1900.
Examination of figures is often tiresome,
but nothing else so completely and clearly
tells the story of politics in this county
and Its strange mutations.
Many Republicans In Colfax think they
are going to carry the county for Mc
Klnley this yoarj and they have even
higher hopes for their county ticket.
Chairman Davenport, of the county Re
publican committee, is most sanguine
over the outlook. He has polled about 40
out of the 58 precincts, and the results
show that there are as many Republicans
as all the opposition combined, conceding
the doubtful to the Democrats. Mr. Da
venport thinks the total vote will be in
the neighborhood of 5400, and that Repub
licans will have at least 2700. If they do,
they will win by a comfortable margin,
inasmuch as there Is old-time war be
tween the Democrats and Populists. There
will be some Debs and Woolley votes, a
few hundred altogether. Chalman Doneen,
of the Democratic committee, does not at
all agree with Mr. Davenport.m his or:m
lses or conclusions. He 'declares that
Bryan .will carry the county by 1200 to 1500
votes, and that Rogers will do even bet
ter. He claims to have a poll -which war
rants this statement; and he asserts,
moreover, that nothing in the present
situation or In past history Justifies any
opinion that the Bryan voters hero are
not largely In the majority. From my In
vestigation of conditions at Colfax and at
other places In the county, I am forces,
to agree with Mr. Doneen, though the
Bryan majority will doubtless be less than
he names. Five hundred for Bryan would
be a moderate estimate, with somewhat
more for Rogers.
The Instructive fact In the Whitman
situation is that the Republican vote dur
ing the past six years has been practical
ly at a standstill, not counting the slump
of 1S35. In 18S9. Whitman gave 2149 for
Ferry for Governor; in 1892, 21C8 for Harri
son for President; In 1594. 2123 for Doo
llttle for Congress: in 1S96, 1610 for Mc
Klnley; and In 1S9S 2072 for Jones for Con
gress. The aggregate vote has been
steadily decreasing since 1S92; but, except
In 1893, there have been Just about the
same number of Republicans. This Is in
effect a slow gain. Doubtless, some Re
publicans, say 250, were among the 00
who stayed at home In 1S9S; but, on the
other hand. It Is generally agreed that not
a few Democrats and Populists then voted
the straight Republican ticket on account
of the odious single tax, which was in tho
BUensburg Fusion platform. The Wash
ington platform this year wisely avoids
single tax, and. In the Issue between Mc
Klnley and Bryan, some Democrats end
Populists who gave aid and comfort to
their common enemy in 1898 will return to
their idols. It Is, of course, lmpnsj'ble to
say what proportion of them will relapse
and what will make their temporary
abode permanent; but not all will tay
and not all will go back. It will be not
a little surprising, therefore. If the Re
publican vote for McKlnley this year is
greater than 2300. If It is not, the Dem
ocratic will be about 2S00 and the remal i
der scattering.
Whitman County Is stagnant, industrial
ly and politically, and the expectel con
traction of the Bryan plurality would not
take place In the same great measure if
there were harmony among the Fu.s:on
Ists. In 1S9C, -conditions for union of the
silver and paper-money boomers wcra
Ideal. - This year there la a abtarbing-
Middle-of-the-Road movement, headed by
the' redoubtable Judge McDonald and 'the
equally Irrepressible "Shorty" Brown. Tho
supreme object of this" Independent organ
ization la to re-elect McDonald Supcrlox
Judge. It embraces within Its rank cer
tain persons who still retain their virgin
notions of the high mission of tho Popn
list party, and are on principle opposed
to fusion. There are Bome othefi, "too,
who have more or less Identity wl.h these
Mlddle-of-the-Roaders, and who ar fight
ing Governor Rogers''because of his apor-,
tasy from tho Populists to the Democrats;
but they seem to ba a select few. Now
McDonald, Mlddlo-of-the-Roader, is in tho
anomalous position of being f or Roge-s,
who Is essentially a Fuslonlst and who
believes that the Populist party ,s dend.
Here Is a contradiction that might TTtve
embarrassing for any other than McDon
ald, who Is himself the Great Contradic
tion. The Democrats are both uneiBy
and annoyed by the irreconcilable atti
tude of the Mlddle-of-the-R04dors.
Though they have no state ticket, and no
Presidential electors, they havs a full
county ticket, and they will attract 'many
votes for the latter, seriously threatening
the success of the local DemocMrin tick
et, and to a certain extent, doubtless, do
ing some damage Jxrth to Bryan and Rog
ers. This Superior Judgeship fight is the
one picturesque and exciting thing In the
Whitman County campaign. McDonald
went in on the Populist tidal wave of
1S93; and has had four stormy years on
the bench. He has contrived In that tlmo
to secure the vigorous hostility of pretty
much the whole tear, and the outspoken
disrespect of the public. His feuds with in
dividual attorneys and offlcers of his court
have become notorious. Just now "he is
having a very troublesome time with J.
H. Nessly, a newspaper man, and he has
himself been held to answer for suborna
tion of perjury. The circumstances of
this and other affairs In which McDonald
baa been tho leading actor do not need to
be recited. His arrest and prosecution
at this time, whether Inspired by politics
or not, have undoubtedly helped his can
didacy, inasmuch as he is doing some et
fectlve posing as a martyr, the intended
victim and sacrificial offering of the In
iquitous Colfax lawyers' cabal and the
Courthouse ring. McDonald's opponents
are S. J. Chadwlck (Dem.) and Mr. Bry
ant (Rep.). While there Is some fear in
Colfax that McDonald may succeed. It is
not well-grounded enough to create gen
eral alarm. The common belief is that
either Chadwlck or Bryant will win.
There Is some Republican defection from
Mr. Frink, and he will run behind Mo
Klnley. There is an ancient grudge
against John L, Wilson in Whitman Coun
ty, growing out of old matters, and the
course of that gentleman in recent years
has done little to soften the grievance.
There Is a scarcely less well-defined preju
dice against John H. McGraw. The.aver
age syotor? tooj tjbtnkst i$tMrL"Friak. bas
net been favorable to lower-grain ra'es,
and lower grain rates Whitman County
has long wanted and demanded. Repub
lican hostility to Frink Is to some ex'ent
offset by Populist hostility to Roger; tut
the anti-Rogers feeling 1b not so obvious
and not likely to prove so effective. One
Republican I saw said that Frink would
lose at least 300 Republican votes; nod he
said that, if the election had been held
two months ago, lie would have lost more.
The causes that have wrought great
changes elsewhere In Washington have
not been so potent in Whitman County.
The prosperity argument, and the general
acknowledgment that 16 to 1 a delu
sion, have availed somewhat, but have
hot turned the county face about. Wheat
Is today 39 cents per bushel. In 1897, wltn
a great crop and a high price, and In 1893,
hundreds of mortgages were can;eied and
hundreds of farmers settled all their ar
rears. For two years wheat has been low,
but the wheatgrower has not gone lntc
debt. He Is now just about holding bis
own. While the county has not gone
ahead In the sense that it has gained
population or wealth, its hea.rhy condi
tion may be Illustrated by a bank btate
ment: On October 7, 1896, the deoostts of
the Second National Bank of Colfax were
$,207,000; loans', ?22S,0O0. Now the deposits
are 1559,000; loans, $530,000. If what gors
up again, and crops are good, it ought
not to be long before Bryanism. and Popu
lism cease to dominate Whitman County.

Many Persons, Reported as Missing
Have Been Located.
NEW YORK, Nov. 2. The police de
partment has been investigating the list
of persons reported missing In connection
with the Tarrant Are, for the purpose of
getting at a correct list of persons sup
posed to have lost theic lives In the fire.
The persons reported wero Investigated
through the station nearest the addresses
given for them, and in many cases they
were reported as safe. In some cases the
police could not find the supposed missing
person at the address given. The list as
revised today shows 18 persons reported
missing and not accounted for. Of these,
six are not known at the addresses given
by the persons who reported them miss
ing. In the list is the name of Benjamin
Moorehouse, a clerk for Tarrant & Co.
The authorities persist in declaring their
belief that he is alive, and purposely
keeping his whereabouts secret.
"We "have detectives out after Mr.
Moorehouse, and expect to land him
soon," said Assistant District Attorney
Walsh, who is assisting In the Fire Mar
shal's investigation. Moorehouse's fam
ily and neighbors at Montclalr, N. J.,
are convinced that he perished in the dis
aster. A resident of Montclalr, who was
in New Tork at the time of the fire, says
he saw Moorehouse standing in front
of the building directly after the flro
started; but since that time no one has
seen him, or heard from. him.
The fire department's investigation of
tho explosion closed today after the tes
timony of Louis Patterson and George C.
Thompson, employes of Tarrant A Co,,
had been taken. Thompson is bookkeeper
for the firm, but he showed an ignorance
of what was in storage in the upper
floors, and no important evidence was
drawn from him. He said Moorehouse,
the missing clerk, was the only man that
knew Just what material was in the build
ing. Dr. Lederle, health department an
alyst, who examined the seven drums
found In the ruins, said today thatthey
contained analylnne oil, -which is only a
little less explosive than kerosene.

WTLLIAlu: L. STRONG. - . -
NEW TORK, Nov. 2. William L. Strong, last Mayor of the old City of New Tork. died
suddenly at 3 A. M at his residence in this city. Mr. Strons had not been at his place of
business for several dors, but no one. suspected that his condition was alarming. Mr.
Btronr took an active part in the. present campaign, and It is said that bis political la?
bors, combined with his attempts to retain supervision over his business affairs hx the face
ot impaired health, brought about the Illness that nisulted in his death. ,
WUllam, li. StronavwM born ItQWo, in 182T. aiAicamo to New York when'airounE man.
H loond employment with different "firms -until JiJiuary 1 1870. when he ora-ntied the
firm of William I. Strong & Co. Th firm soon era- to be one of th& prominent business
houses In the city. He also interested himself in b.uiklns' matters, and was president of the
Central National Bank. At a mass meeting In Madlson-Squaro Garden, In 1804, a non
partisan committee of TO was appointed to organize- the opposition to Tammany Hall, to
frame a platform and select candidates for office, and It was this committee that selected
Mr, Strong to run for Mayor on tho reform platform. His opponent was Hugh J. Grant,
and the contest was a bitter ono. The outcome was tho election of Mr. Strong by a plural
ity to 47,187. Tho administration of Mr. Strong was an eventful one Mr. Strong was avow
edly Independent In his views on city politics. In the xnunllcpal campaign of 1S97, which
resulted In the return of Tammany Hall to power, he took tho stump for Seth Low as
against General Benjamin F. Tracy, the regular Republican candidate. After this election
ho virtually retired from active polltlos, duo o falling health.
At the tlmo of his death Mr. Strong was a member of a number of societies. Including
tho Ohio Society, American Flno Arts Society, American Museum of Natural History, Met
ropolitan Museum Association and American Geographical Socloty. Mr. Strong had been la
poor health for about six weeks. fc
CANTON, O., Nov. 2. News of tho death of ex-Mayor Strong, of New Tork, was received
with feelings of great sorrow at tho McKlnley horn. The deceased was esteemed as a per
sonal friend of long standing. Immediately upon receipt of the news tho President sent a
telegram of condolence to tho bereaved family.
667 towns and cities, and talked to what
Is estimated to bo 3,000,000 people. This
record Includes more speeches, more miles
traveled and more territory covered than
that of all the other candidate for Presi
dent or Vice-President of the United
States of all other parties for the last 100
years, with the exception of Bryan In 1S96.
This wonderful campaign was finished by
a two weeks' tour of the State of New
Tork, during which the candidate traveled
2230 miles through 37 counties, and made
120 speeches, tho majority of them from
the rear platform of the train. Mr. Roose
velt finished his tour in excellent health
and in good spirits, and, as he said to
night, "with a slightly weakened, voice,
but able to go on with the campaign a
couple of weeks or more."
The last day of this campaign included
eight Btops between Jamestown. In Chau
tauqua County, and Included Owego, In
Tioga County. The stops today varied
from two hours In duration, at Olean, tt
10 minutes at other points. He finished
tonight at Owego, the home of Senator
Piatt. AmtSng the things which Governor
Roosevelt said in Owego, HornellsviUe,
Wellsvllle and Addison, the last four
places on the day's tour, wero these:
"Mr. Bryan Is now inclined to laugh at
the argument of the full dinner pall. No
body laughed about It four years ago. It
is a mighty sight easier to laugh about
it when it is full than when it is empty.
When It is empty, it is serious business.
If this Nation chooses to turn bedlamite
and put in Mr. Bryan and try his policies,
we have nobody but ourselves to thank
for the disaster that will surely follow.
It won't do any good to say that we
meant well; that we did not mean to hurt
ourselves. What I am saying applies Just
as much to Democrats as to Republicans.
It Is to the interest of all of us to have
prosperity and good times. Tho only
chance Mr. Bryan has Is in that queer
forgetfulness which people have -when
they are well off. When a man is well off,
he "is very apt to be willing to take
chances. When he is badly off, then ha
is more careful. It is now four years
since we were badly off, and some people
forget. Four years ago, neither Mr. Br
an nor any one else would have dared to
feneer at the full dinner pall and say It did
not mean much, because then the dinner
pall was not full, and It means a great
deal to every one of us when the dinner
pail Is empty.
"Mr. Bryan" says we ha,ve no Tight In
the Philippines -without the consent of the
governed. Jefferson Davis said it was a
violation of the Declaration or independ
ence to come down and oppose them with
out the consent of the governed froa: try
ing to get out of the Union and own
slaves. He said yod could not oppose"
them, but some of you here did it. Now
Mr. Bryan upholds the Declaration of
Independence as applying to the Malay
banditti, who are shooting at our men on
the other side of the earth, but denies It"
to his fellow Americans of duskier skin
in North Carolina. There are two im
portant Issues in this campaign. Our op
ponents want to Bryanize the Nation and
Crokerize the state.
"They can't do lt,,r came an interrup
tion. "No," continued the Governor, "they
can't do It. Because our people are not
prepared to see the-level of the state gov-
1 ernment brought down- to tho level of ,th
Tammany government of New Tork City.
I appeal to every Democrat who believes
in honesty and decency In politics to stand
with us and avert such a calamity. I ask
you to compare the state administration,
department by department, from- the top
to tho bottom, put each in comparison I
with their government of the City of New f
York, with its blackmail, vice and crime;
its corruption, Its indifference to the de
mands of the people: make that compar
ison, and you cannot help resolving that
no change to Tammany Hall shall be
made In this state. I ask your support
for the re-election of McKlnley and the
election of Mr. Odell, not on party
grounds, for I feel this Is far more than
a mere party contest, but because I feel
I have a right to appeal to goodjjltlxen
ship, to the principles of decent govern
ment and challenge the aid of men who
have the honor and welfare of the Nation
at heart. All promises have neen made
gtod. The prophesies that Mr. Bryan
made have been signally falsified. Hem
in this town compare the wage list and
the number of men employed by the rail
road with four years ago. The reason
the railway business has Increased is be
cause the country has prospered; more
freight Is carried because there Is more
business, and more men are employed. Mr.
Bryan says find out how your employer
votes and then vote the other way. No
American citizen has a right to cast his
vote save on the ground of principle, and
not to vote one way because some other
man votes another. Mr. Bryan asks you
to stultify yourself and be false to your
duties as citizens."
As If in appreciation of the closing of
the campaign, the Governor said:
"There is really not much to say In the
closing days of the campaign. People
have pretty much made up their minds,
and I think that wo are goings to give In
this (State the second largest majority it
has ever given."
"That's right, that's rightl" shouted a
number in tho audience. .
"But," continued the Governor, T don't
want any man to make the mistake of
r taking anything for granted. We want
rnot merely to whip rryanism, but to
crush it under our heels. I ask you to
stand by the party that succeeds, and not
the party that fails; for a party that
makes financial policies that work, and
not the party that advocates financial
policies that won't work; for the party
that fought to a finish the Spanish War
and hoisted the flag In tne mnipplnes-,
and wot the party that grumbled about
how the war was fought, and now wants
to haul down the flag In the Philippines."
Just as the train was pulling out of
Waverly occurred th6 only hostility of the
day. A stone was thrown, breaking the
gUss In the observation window in the
Governor's car.
Governor Roosevelt was shown a news
paper today in which was published a
rumor that he was on tho verge of col
lapse from excessive work In the political
campaign. The Governor good-humoredly
said his weighu and general appearance
were sufficient denial of the report, add
ing that he was actually In the best of
health. It is believed that the rumor arose
from the fact that the Governor wrote to
New Tork City asking that he bo excused
from speaking Saturday, and that the trip
through Long Island scheduled for Mon
day be canceled, as he wished to finish
his speechmaklng in his home village. Oys

OLEAN, li. T., Nov. 2. Tho Roosevelt
train made its first stop at Randolph,
where the Governor spoke briefly. At
Olean the Governor, in part, said:
"I am passing through a part of the
state which can always be depended on to
roll majorities for the cause of decent
citizenship. In this campaign that is the
fundamental Jssue. More and more during
the past few weeks tho effects of our op
ponents' appeal to disorder have become
manifest. Mr. Crokers open incitenfent
to riot at the polls is but a fitting climax
to tho Bryanlte campaign In which mob
violence- at political meetings has become
a recognozed feature.
"A .singular thing. In connection with
this campaign is the attitude of the very
people, who, having opposed Bryan four
years ago, are now supporting him, al
though he represents every principle which
they then condemned. Mr. Bourke Cock
ran, for instance, used four years ago
stronger language than X would now.

Judge Bstee has rendered a decision to
the effect that the "Constitution does not
follow the flag" in. an important libel
case that has been before the courts her
for some time.
William H. Marshall was sentenced to
six months imprisonment for criminal .li
bel on aepqunt of publications he made
about the late Chief Justice Judge. Ha
made an appeal to the Supreme Court of
Hawaii on technical grounds, alltgias
that the methods pursued during his trial
weqs.not in accordance with American,
procedure. The lower court was sus
tained and Marshall turned to Judge So
tee with a writ of habeas corpus.
t Judge Estee held that the laws of Ha
waii, allowing conviction, of defendants
upon a verdict by nine jurors, were still
In force at the time of Marshall's trial,
which was long after the passage of tho
resolution annexing Hawaii to the Unlen,
The Judge said that Hawaii before belna
annexed "was a free, enlightened state,
possessing all the attributes of sovereign
ty, and when, with its consent, the Islands
were annexed by the United States, not
only the lands, but the people with theis
laws and customs, were annexed; and by
the well established laws qf nations, these
lawa and customs remained in force until
new laws were enacted for the govern
ment of tfte territory."
The question whether the Constitution
followed the flag to Hawaii la one which
many people- would like to have decided
by the Supreme Court of the United
States. Ono of the Circuit Judges here,
taking a view opposed to that of Judge
fistee, " has already released a prisoner
