TO-DAY'S ELECTION. Hot Contest in Con- gressional Districts. A Look at too Will convince anyone of its superior excellence as a newspaper. RENO, WABHOE COUNTY, NOVEMBER 4, 1890 NO. 30. The Negroes in the South Decline to Vote. MoKinley Seerna Confident of a _ Bo-Election. To-Uay's By Associated Press.] CHICAGO, Nov. weuther ia brilliant and a largo vote is being polled. Many voters came with their ballotH already prepared. Tickets are heavily scratched, and oveiyborty is at sea as to the results. Tho indications are that Congress- man Adams (Rep.) is having a hard for Congress in tbe First district, and that Taylor (Hep.) is having a Himilar experience. NEW YORK, Nov. polls opened at G o'clock this morning and the work of voting under the new bal- lot law is unusually large, and a num- ber of workers about the polls, the People's Municipal League alone sup- plying a small army of them. The politicians of every parly made un- usual efforts to out a full vote early. Tho volinj? under the new law has "proceeded more slowly than usual, but with greater steadiness. At noon there was a greater proportion of the registered voters in than has been customary at that hour. The new ballot law did not seem to interfere with the tenement house districts. They have all been diligently in- structed in the use of pasters, and far more of them than of the original official ballots were used. In almost every district, however, some citizens lost their votes through failure to comply with tbe provisions of the law within the prescribed ten minutes. A large number of those who thus lost their votes were citizens possessing education and intelligence, but who failed to acquaint themselves with the details of tho law. Tho weather was threatening in the early morning, but cleared later. Many arrests have been made dur- ing tho day for illegally registering and votinir and for destroying ballots. A number of saloon keepers were ar- rested for keeping open in too near proximity to the polling places. M Mayor Grant's headquarters it is said tho voting ia proceeding in an intelli- gent manner and with little delay. At Mr. GolVs headquarters, on the con- trary, it is said tho voting is very backward. In many down town dis- trk-ts it is estimated that a full vote could not be cafat. Keporta are ceivecl also that Republicans are voting tho straight fusion ticket. The Supreme Court Judges have ruled iu a, case of a voter physically disabled that an assistant ba allowed him in the polling booth. The remedy of the election inspectors was to hold the voter for perjury if he has sworn falsely. and other Irish leaders vifcted several polling places. Reports from all parts of the city show that a large vote has baen polled and that everything has been subordi- nated to tho contest for Mayor. The organs of Tammany claim a sure vic- tory but tbe supporters of Scott seeui confident that their man will be the next Mayor. KANSAS CITY, Nov. election is passing off quietly and the vote is very large. Tho weather is fair and warm. MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. is tbe first general trial of the Australian ba'lot system in Minneapolis. Fr> m all accounts so far it works be.-.utifnil y and a large vote is being polled. Mer- riam (RopO being scratched con- siderably for .Governor, mottly in favor of Owen, the Alliance candidate. It is probable that Wilson (Dsui.) will also lose many votes to Owen. Snider for Congress, is con- bideied sure of election. MILWAUKEE, Nov. tiny opened bright and from present indi- cations Wisconsin -will exceed the heaviest vote she ever cast. Some disturbances may occur in the Polish wards before the day is over. The re- sult iu the State is a matter of great doubt, the ecclesiastical element hav- Uig upset all calculations based on for- elections. Peck, Democrat, will undoubtedly carry Milwaukee city and couHy by a good majority, but the are hopeful that Demo- cratic disaffection on account of the educational issue, added to the Pro- hlbiticn and Labor support of the Bennett law will more than make up for the Catholic and Lutberian bolt. A Catholic priest in the Polish dis- trict was at tbe polls directing the forces, and several Lutheran mintetere were also conspicuous about the voting places. CINCINNATI, Nov. weather is fair and voting is progressing rapidly and a full vote is almost certain. In many precincts twc-thirds.of the reg- istered vote was in before 9 o'clock. TOLEDO Nov. weather is clear and cold and a heavy vote is being polled. Advices from the Sisth and Seventh Congressional Districts show a bitter struggle over the two Congressmen.

CLEVELAND, Nov. weatl-er unpleasant; rain and snow have lalten frequently and Ihe vote is rather light. DELPHI A, Nov. weather is clear and an average vote is being cast. An exciting contest is in pro- gress in the Third Congressional Dis- trict Richard Vaux served out Randall's tin expired term, hut was defeated in the Democratic convention for the full ter.-a, Wm.

Nov. A'heavy vote is being polled, and the indica- tions are the Republicans will make a gain here over the vote of two years ago. JACKSONVILLE Nov heavy vote is being polled throughout the State, but it may fall short of pre- vious years, by reason that a large number of electors are disqualified for non-payment of poll tax. The Second Congressional District will be close. BALTIMORE, Nov. election, with the Australian ballot system, is proceeding without a ripple. Only one Congressional District continues in doubt, the Sixth, and it is thought McCommas will succeed himself, and bieak the otherwise solid Democratic column. DES MOUSES (Ia.)

NAMIVILI.K Nov. weather is clear and oold. Owing to tho enforcement of the Dorch and registration laws, it is expected tbat to-day the number of votes will be re- duced from that of 1888. CHARLESTON (S. Nov. prospects are that the vote will be small. The full white vote -will not bo polled, and the negroes take but little interest in either the State or Congressional elections. The indica- tions are that the regular Democratic ticket will be elected. Chairman Irley of the State Com mittee telegraphs from Columbia that the negroes are taking but little in- terest. At Georgetown they are voting for Tillman. Chairman Layles' of the Haskel Committee telegiaphs that gross irregularities have been practiced bj the Tillmanit3S, but all the news in- dicates that Judge Haskell is elected by a large majority." Scattering dispatches irom all ove the State say the negroes are keepinj away from the polls. The Democrai'c candidates for Con gress in all the districts, except, poa sibly, in the seventh, will hi elected Even the seventh is claimed by th Democrats, because the -white Demo- crats are voting solid'y for Elliot, and the negroes are divided between Miller and Brayton, the two Republican can- didates.

The men generally do not favor the scheme aud much discon- tent exists, although most of the iiien worked yesterday. Pending the decision on tbe Directors' proposition, it is feared that a strike might be in- augurated at any moment. Early this morning Tillett and Mann, the labor leaders, visited the various dockgates and exboited the men not to quit work. Their advice was followed in most cases and the men resumed work, though in numer- ous instances a sullen disposition has been shown by the laborers. Eight hundred men employed ou the Royal Victoria and Albert docks refused to acquiesce in the decision of the leaders and went out on a strike. Another Oood. Man ttone Wrong.
