miners recommended that the terrnß

Sboaid these terms be accepted, the
strike would oome to an end. Chief
among the terms is an increase of ten
per cent, in wages. When this was

party are using every endeavor to

their chance, and are persuading the
operators to meet the demands made
upon them by the workers. One thing
seems certain, the strike will ba set
tled before election.

FOR THE SENATE.
Governor Candler or Crngresaman
Livingston Msy Oppose City.
AOants, Or'. printed.
In the News yesterday that Governor
Candler will be a candidate 10 oppose
Senator Clay, when the term of the
former expires, ia not generally be
lieved, since the governor deolines to
confirm the report. The rumor is
several months old, and when it was
first circulated, the governor very em
phatically denied it. Now that the
governor has been re-eleoted, and as it
is a precedent that he will not serve
more than two terms, some believe the
statement is true. The governor, how
ever, passes the matter by saying that
he never crosses a bridge until he
comes to it.
An interesting story Is being told by
the fall politicians who are now visit
ing Atlanta, that Congressman Lon
LivlnjffWßWlNffn the fifth, will be a
candidate to oppoee Stove Clay for the
United States Senate. This story is not
confirmed, but as it has been repeated
ly told there are many who believe there
is more truth than fiction In jt, A
prominent politician stated yesterday
that he knew that such would ba the
case if the governor did not announce
for the race.

Crokor is Confident, but the Repute

Best End of It, j
New York, Oct. 13.—The great polit
ical battle between the two parties in
the United States has about reached its
height, and this state, by all appear
ances will be in the very vortex of the
fray. Upon most conservative estt-.
mates secured from headquarters of the
two parties and from leading newspa
seem more favorable to the republicans.
The democrats, however, are very con
fident, and claim the state by a good
Id the betting the backers ofjMcKiniey
are decidedly more aggrocsive, and out
ride of the large bets already made with
odds on the republican nominee, none
amount have been covered by the
Democrats ol every shade are on the
qui vive of expectation, anticipating
something grandiose in the line of ova
tions and demonstrations in favor of
their standard bearer W. J. Bryan, who
will be here at an early day to attend
the monster democratic meeting. This
mooting, judging by those announced
to be present, will easily eclipse any
previous gathering of prominent men.
Bryan will be the star.orator, well sups
ported by a galaxy of the most brilliant
and eloquent speakers la the country.
Asa whole the republicans seem to
have the ocstoflt. Croker,
is confident, and the effect of the mon
ster rally on the morale of the and mo*
cratic phalanxes, promises to act ss a
powerful offset and help capture the
wavering, who really hold the balance
