McKinley, net plurality 11,585
McKInley's plurality over Bryan in
Oregon will be between, 11,500 and 12,500.
This Is The Oregonlan's estimate, based
on a careful canvass of the counties. Mc
Kinley will carry 28 counties by plurali
ties aggregating: 12,635. Bryan will carry
five counties by aggregate pluralities of
1060. This estimate, shown above in its
details, leaves McKinley 11,585 to the
good. It does not seem exaggerated when
it is considered that the Republican can-,
dldates for Congress carried this state
by 12,293 In June, and the general situa
tion and alignment of parties are about
the same now as in June. Bryan has a
fighting chance in Baker County, which
is given, to McKinley by 100, and Mc
Kinley has a fighting chance in Jackson,
which, is given to Bryan by 100.
Bry&nltes Give No Estimate.
Chairman Steel, of tho Republican State
Committee, claims Oregon for McKinley
by 10,000 plurality. He concedes six coun
ties to Bryan Baker, Harney, Jackson
and Malheur by 100 each, Union by 259
and Linn by 300. Chairman Sheridan, of
the 'Democratic Committee, and Chair
man. King, of the Populist Committee,
who have jointly managed the Bryan
campaign, decline to give any estimate
for Oregon. Mr. Sheridan evinced much
Interest in Chairman Steel's estimate,
and asked the names of the counties
which had been conceded to Bryan. An
Oregonian reporter called them off, but
omitted to mention Harney.
"How about Harney?" Chairman Sher
idan promptly inquired.
Chairman Sheridan, did not ask about
any other county. Prom this It may be
deduced that the Democratlo leader was
satisfied that Chairman Steel had con
ceded all the counties that Bryan is like
ly to carry.

Total Vote of the State.
The vote of the state tomorrow ought
to be 'between 110,000 and 115,000.' In June
there were cost for Congressmen 82,419
votes, against a registration of 95,408,
leaving a stay-at-home vote of 15,958.
"Whether these stay-at-homes and 12,000 or
15,000 others who are entitled to vote
will come out, is a problem that none of
the political managers has been able to
solve. If the experience of the past 20
years counts for anything, pretty close to
a full vote should be cast tomorrow. In
every Presidential year since 18S0, the
Presidential vote of November has ex
ceeded the Congressional vote of June, in
1892 and 1S95 tho November vote was
greatly In excess of the June vote, as
the following comparison shows:

of a series of severe earthquakes that

o'clock in the morning", was very violent
and lasted 15 seconds. There were three
more strong' shocks during the day.
Cardinal Gibbons Preaches oa the
Coming Presidential Election.
BALTIMORE, Nov. 4. Cardinal Gibbons
took occasion at high mass today to say
a few words on the subject of the coming
election in his regular monthly sermon to
his congregation at the Cathedral. The
Cardinal never takes any active part in
politics, rarely, if ever, casting his ballot,
but to those who are fortunate enough
to be in his confidence, he does not hesi
tate to express himself upon the (issues
involved Ir the present contest. He takes
the position that there need be no alarm
on the part of any one over the result
of the coming election, and asserts that
there Is nothing In the situation to war
rant the belief that tho election of either
candidate will in any wise seriously affect
the future welfare and prosperity of the
American Republic. Cardinal Gibbons
said, in part:
" 'Render to Caesar the things that are
Caesar's, and to God the things that are
God's.' Alatthew xxll.
"Every man in the commonwealth leads
a dual life a private life under the shad
ow of the home, and a public life under
the aegis of the state. As a father, hus
band or son, he owes certain duties to
God as well as to the family; as a citizen,
ha contracts certain obligations to his
country. Theso civic virtues are all com
prised under the generis name of patriot
ism. "Patriotism implies, of course, not only
a love for one's country, but also an at
tachment to Its laws, institutions and
government: filial admiration for its he
roes, its statesmen and men of genius and
Christian philanthropy, who have contrib
uted to their country's renown by the
valor of their arms, the wisdom of their
counsel; by their literary fame or by their
publla benefactions. It includes also an
ardent zeal for the maintenance of those
sacred principles which secure to the citi
zen freedom of conscience and an earnest
determination to consecrate his talents
and his life. If necessary, pro oris et fools,
in defense of altar and fireside, of God.
and fatherland. God has planted in the
human heart an imperishable lovo of
"If the virtue of patriotism was held in
such high esteem by pagan Greece and
Rome, guided only by tho light of reason,
how much -more should It be cherished
by Christians enlightened as they are by
the voice of revelation. Our Divine Sav
ior has ennobled and sanctified loyalty to
country by the force of his teaching and
example. Perhaps it is only when an
American travels abroad that ho fully
realizes how deep rooted is his love for
his native land. The sentiment of patriot
ism, which may be dormant at home, is
aroused and quickened on foreign shores.
Tho sight of the American flag flying
from the mast of a ship in mldocean or
in-soma foreign port awakes an unwonted
emotion and enthusiasm. Let a citizen
from Maine meet a. citizen: fn&oCaiifor-
ma. wu win uuiu m. ino xioer or on tno
shores of the Bosphorus, they will at once
forget that at home thoy live 3000 miles
apart; all state lines are- obliterated, par
ty differences axe laid aside, religious ani
mosities (If any had existed) are extin
guished. They will warmly clasp hands
and will remember only that they are
American citizens and children of the
same mother.
"On next Tuesday, an election will be
held throughout the United States for the
highest office In the gift of the people.
There are two candidates for tho Presi
dencyMr. McKinley and Mr. Bryan. Of
course, only one candidate will be success
ful. All the efforts of the other will have
been expended In vain. Immense outlays
of money will have been squandered, and
tho oratory of many distinguished speak
ers will have wasted its sweetness on the
desert air." I earnestly hope that the re
sult of the election will be so declslvo as
to leave no room for doubt or cavil or
contention, such as happened when Tilden
and Hayes were candidates in 1S76.
"As there are two candidates In the
field, so there are two great parties in the
country the Republican and the Demo
cratic party. The existence of parties is
not only useful, but even essential, in a
popular and enlightened goyernment like
ours. "Where there are no parties, or
where one party is too weak and Insig
nificant to present a formidable barrier
to the other, the dominant party will revel
in power, and is liable to run to excess.
But where both parties are almost equally
divided, as Is the case with us, one party
will watch the other; It will hold up to
public criticism and condemnation the
shortcomings and official misdemeanors nf
the ruling power. It will compel the dom
inant party to mend Its ways, or it will
seek redress by driving Its leaders from
office in a coming election.
"Vote then on Tuesday for the candi
date of your choice. And as you are
guided by your conscientious Judgment
In -the selection of your candidate, you
should give to your neighbor who. differs
from you due credit for being actuated
by the like honorable motives. Do not
imagine that tho country will go to perdi
tion if your favorite is defeated. And let
not your opponent indulge in tho pessim
istic notion that we shall witness a revo
lution and a social upheaval if his candi
date Is not elected. For my part, what
ever may be the result of the Presidential
election, I have an abiding faith in the
perpetuity of our Republic."
Dr. Parkhnrst Mentions Politics.
NEW TORK, Nov. 4. Rev. Dr. Park
hurst, at the Madison-Avenue Presbyte
rian Church this afternoon, took next
Tuesday's election as the basis of his
sermon. The doctor said that Imperialism
meant the devoting of ourselves to our
country, rather than our country to our
selves. No patriotic American could fall
to recognize the principles -confronting
America in the strained relations existing
between the two competing classes of our
population. He added:
"It Is undoubtedly the fact, with regard
to this part of the country, at any rate,
that no consideration Is Just now operat
ing with such tremendous effect as the
consideration of the dollar. I want to say,
parenthetically, that though I am not
speaking now 6f the economic proportion
of the dollar I am not a banker or politi
cal economist and without being either
and being simply a preacher of righteous
ness. It Is axiomatic to say that a dis
honest dollar Is a National fraud, and
that to indulge In a dollar that makes
believe that It Is a whole one when it Is
only a half-dollar would transform our
entire people Into an American Ananias."
Republicans Claim Maryland.
BALTIMORE, Nov. 4. Chairman Golds
boro. of the Republican State Central
Committee, tonight Issued a statement In

betting, which has heretofore been
strongly in favor of McKinley, has

Look Out for the Bryanite Faker and His Little
Campaign Lie.
The great Presidential contest of 1900 Is nearly over. But ono
day Intervenes before tho voting. On the Republican side the cam
paign has been one of education and fairness, of Issues squarely
met. On the Democratic side it has been a campaign of delusion.
Not a Democratic! leader from Bryan to Croker, and Croker back to
Bryan, has been honest with the people. Bryan has denounced
trusts, but he has patted Croker, the father of the New York Ice
trust, on the back and exclaimed: "Great Is Tammany, and Richard
Croker is its prophet!" The manager of his campaign is James K.
Jones, of cotton-bala trust fame. Bryan has opposed expansion
and called it imperialism and militarism, and appealed to Thomas
Jefferson as a guide when he knows that Jefferson was an expan
sionist, that he acquired Louisiana, and that, looking with longing
eyes toward Canada, he wrote: "No Constitution .was ever before so
well calculated as ours for extensive empire and self-government."
Dealing with the money question, Bryan has played fast and
loose with the sound-money advocates and the Populists, hoping to
get support from both sides. His speeches since tho campaign be
gan have given the American people his true measure, and he can
not be elected. His only hope Is In such change of sentiment as
may be brought about by the circulation of false stories. Look out
for all yarns sent out from Democratic headquarters. Look out for
all indorsements of Bryan that may be posted on billboards, tele
graph poles and dead -walls tomorrow. If you see appeals for Bryan,
put the stamp of falsehood on them. If there was any truth in
them, and the Democrats were honest, they would have been brought
out lonar ago. The Democrats would not wait until the last moment
to tell the truth.

Cf '
slon. Mr. Lopes, by his declarations, con
firms all I have said of the promising
educational possibilities in the Philip
pines and of the admirable character of
the educated Filipinos, few though they
are, who may be taken as a type and
promise of the future. Nor does Mr. Lo
pez deny that the masses of the inhab
itants of the Philippine Islands of all
tribes and races are uneducated and very
ignorant. Furthermore, by silent acqui
escence in the report of our committee,
Mr. Lopez acknowledges that thei major
ity of the Filipinos either desire Ameri
can sovereignty, as is the case with
the men of education and property, or
acquiesce In it or are indifferent to It,
and that the demand for Independence
originated with the ambitious Tagal
Insurgent leaders, who havja diffused It
with fire and sword, aided by atrocious
misrepresentations of the alms and pur
poses of the United States. Lastly, Mr.
Lopez does not question the finding of
our commission that the Inhabitants of
the Philippine Islands are marked by
great racial and tribal differences, by im
mense varieties of social conditions,
which rango all the way from the civi
lisation ot Manila down through all
phases of barbarism to the naked savage
of Mindanao and Northern Luzon, by a be
wildering multiplicity of languages which
are mutually unintelligible, by dense ig
norance on the part of the masses of
the people by the absence of union and
concert, and the utter lack of the Idea
and sentiment of nationality, and by the
absolute Inexperience of all classes In
the affairs of government, which Spain
always kept in Spanish hands.
"And the consequence to be drawn from
all this is equally Indisputable, nor does
Mr. Lopez seek to dispute It namely,
that the various and diversified peoples
of the Philippine Islands are at the pres
ent time Incapable of being considered
as a nation; they are utterly unfit to ac
cept sovereignty over the archipelago,
even if the American people wished to
Invest them with it; nor have they any
hope of ever becoming a free and self
governing nation, except In the continu
ance of American sovereignty over them
and In the peace, prosperity and ever-Increasing
liberty of self-government which
the American flag guarantees them. Pull
down our flag and you leave "the Phil
ippines a prey to Internal feuds and do
mestic insurrections, which would quick
ly beget anarchy. This would necessitate
the intervention of foreign powers for
the protection of the Uvea and property
of their subjects. Of course, the Islands
would eventually be divided up among
them, and the Filipinos would exchange
the free Institutions and home rule which
tho American people desire as roon as
possible, and In the largest degree prac
ticable to bestow upon them, for the
genuine Imperialism of the Old World
Emperors, Kings and Czars. It Is the
mission of our Republic to save the Fili
pinos, who in general are most prom
ising, estimable and even lovable peo
ple, from this cruel fate, and to train
them up to the use of free Institutions
and the noble work of self-government
Just as quickly and as generously as they
or any portion of them can be Induced
to exercise a civil function so arduous
and so unaccustomed."

Report of Asrent on Five Tribes ot
Indlaa. Territory.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. United States
Indian Agent Shoenf elt, "In charge of the
Union Agency, whose Jurisdiction com
prises tho Five Civilized Tribes, protests
tjn his annual report against unlawful oc
cupation of the Indian lands and urges
rigid Congressional legislation to protect
the Indian citizens against tho encroach
ment of aggressive- and grasping whites.
Many of the Indians are too poor to In
stitute suit for possession. Tho total popu
lation ot the Five Civilized Tribes Is esti
mated at 84,750. The agent says that there
is now every reason to believe that the
Indian depredations and disturbances In
&t--'l.-. '-ftHf3rKJt& W'tJ!,'itsJfi
this region are at an end. A few full
blood Creeks are strenuously opposing
the allotments of lands and have banded
together and refuse to appear to select
their allotments. A large majority of the
Creeks, however, have made selections.
The report recommends that Congress
appropriate out of the Cherokee funds a
sufficient amount to pay the Indebted
ness of the nation and that a law bt
passed compelling the Five Tribes to
adopt a uniform system of taxing non
citizens residing and doing business In the
limits of the nation.

Revised Estimates for the Various
States Election Fraud ALrea&jr
Allejred and Arrests Made. 1
NEW YORK, Nov. 4. The Republican
committee today gave out the following
official statement:
"On the eve of the election the Repub
lican National Committee's forecast of
the result, based upon absolutely au
thentic and unimpeachable figures and
facts, differs from lt3 previous forecasts
only In increasing the magnitude of the
triumph which Tuesday will bring to
the cause of National honor and pros
perity. All tho sources of the commit
tee's information. Including many who
are unwilling witnesses, concur In the
conclusions that Tuesday's election will
prove a landslide for McKinley and seal
the doom ot Bryan and Bryanlsm for
ever. "The prime cause of this Irresistible
and overwhelming popular revolt against
the Bryan Populist ticket Is perfectly
obvious. It consists In the desire ot the
people to maintain the prosperity which
they have enjoyed and now enjoy under
the policies of MeKinley's administra
tion, and it Is their well-grounded fear
of public calamity In case MxBryan la
"The laboring man, his wife and chil
dren remember the poverty and misery
and despair which surrounded their lives
In the black years previous to MeKin
ley's Inauguration, and they remember
with gratitude the relief which has come
to them since, with abundant employment
and Increased wages. They listen now to
Bryan's invitations to throw away their
advantage, but they respectfully decline
"Tho business 'men of the United States
remember what happened to them tn
those same dark days, and they know
what the practical result of the election
of 1S96 has been In reference to tho re
habilitation and prosperity of all lines
of commercial enterprise during the past
four years. They conectly regard tho
proposition to Indorse Bryan and his
free-silver and free-trade theories as

"The farmers are not likely to forget
the evil days when they were reduced
to bankruptcy and almost to beggary;
and with their mortgages lifted, their
farm products bringing greatly increased
prices, and their homes filled with com
