Oklahoma farmers will put in a
larger acreage of cotton next season
than ever before. Oklahoma has prov-
en by the past, to be a good cotton pro-
ducing country and the farmers realize
that there is good money in raising it.
The farmers in the new country are

closed with great enthusiasm.
A month ago a number of prospec-
tors, who had begun to open up mines
in the Wichita mountains, were arrest-

commissioner. Last week they were
given a preliminary hearing, and the
commissioner lias just rendered a de-
cision declaring that there was 110 law
under which they could be held, and
therefore discharging them
zenship had been allowed. Before the
commission the question becomes one
of evidence and justice: before the
council it was simply a matter of the
ability of the applicant to raise enough
money to buy his way in.

Topeka, Kan., Nov. 3.—T".ie Repub-
lican state central committer continues
to decline to give out a forecast of the
result of to-morrow's election by coun-
ties, but this forenoon a half dozen
well posted men got together and
made estimates of majorities which
seems to be accepted by the party
leaders as approximately correct.
These estimates give to the Republic-
ans sixty-six counties and to the fusion-
ists thirty-eight, with one (Kiowa) in
doubt, and McKinley 10,520 majority.

court, five out of seven congressmen,
five out of six appellate court judges,

St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 3.—The officers
of the State Democratic committee
give out the following forecast:
In 1802 the Democratic pluraity was
40,000. The most careful and trust-
worthy estimates show that outside of
St. Louis city the gold standard Demo-
cratic defection will be more than off-
set by silver Republicon accessions.
The People's party vote is solid for
Bryan. In 1892 this vote outside of St.
Louis was 40,000. This would give
Bryan outside this city a lead of
80,000. Allowing the Republicans
10,000 stay-at-home votes in 1892,
Bryan will still have 70,000 outside of
The Republican State committee is
confident that there is a big surprise
party in store for the Democrats, and
say that their state and national ticket
will carry the state.
