Judge Taft predicted today a great and
decisive victory In New York for the re
publican ticket. i
"I have lust coma out of New York
atate with the conviction that tomorrow
will bring with It a republican majority
which Will not only give the electoral vote
to hie, but will elect Governor Hugliea by
a round majority," aald Judge Taft.
"W all of ua recognise New York aa a
pivotal atale, and I apeak advisedly when
I aay that the republican ticket will pre
vail there.
"The democratic plurality In New York
City will not be aufflclent to overcome
the tremendous republican vota which will
be rolled up In the rural district.
"Tha Madison Square Garden meeting
was regarded aa the climax of the cam
paign, but In the meeting which I have
held lnc there has been the same en-
thuslaam, the same huge crowds and the
tame firmly Implanted conviction that New
fork will again go republican.
"I am satisfied with the sltuat'on and 1
iwalt with confidence the election tomor
tfw, for I am aa certain of victory aa a
wan may well be of anything here below,
There was bo change today In the
announced 1 estimate of the oppos
ing national chairman, Mr. Hitchcock of
the republican committee holding stead'
lastly to his forecast of FJ6 votes for Taft,
and Mr. Mack of the democratic commit
tee announcing himself as equally certain
that Mr, Bryan will receive 333 of tb 483
vote In the electoral college.
Hoth Chairman at Helm.
The last dsy of the campaign found Mr.
Hitchcock early a I, his office In the Metro
politan lower and h remslned there un
til 13 o'clock tonight, when he left for
West Newton, Mass., to cist hi vote. He
will return Tuesday afternoon. -Mr.-JlLcIi-oock
seal out ltvjlal night for delivery
early today a aeries of telegram to na
tional committeeman and to state chair
men, giving them their last Instructions.
Not a single state was omitted. Today
the republican national chairman was In
telegraphic and telephonic communication
with lvaC.-ra of the party In all sections of
the country. ,
National Chairman Mack of the demo
cratic party alao sent out his final Instruc
tions to slat chairmen last night and at
democratic headquarter In the Hoffman
house today the same rule as to tele
graphic and telephonic communication pre
vailed. Claim la New York.
The republican organisation of New York

delivered ten apeclies . In this city

leader are working upon the belief that
they Will hold the Bryan majority In
k greater New York td the neighborhood of
'o,w ana mat Mr, -rare wiu come down to
' the Bronx with a plurality from the up
state counties sufficient to overcome the
democratic vota In the city and leave a
margin of 100,000 in his favor.

. have a sufficient majority in greater New
Work more than to offset even an unusu
. Lily heavy republican vote from upstate.
Titty claim that p-trty unity prevails in
every Motion of the state for the first time
In a decade and are depending upon the
labor Vote, they declare, to turn the tide
In their direction.
The result a to the SLate tlckeU remain
In the balanc and the confident claims of
success put forth by both side are ap
parently based mors upon bop than upon
definite Information. Political obaervera
her declare that thre haa never been a
state election more difficult to forecaat.
Hanhe and Taft. .
Leader of both parties agree that Gov
ernor Hughes will run behind Mr. Taft.
but the republicans say that the difference
will nut be so great to Imperil the gov
ernor chance for rt-electlon. They base
this claim partly upon the opposition to
Governor Hughe which developed prior to
hi nomination, to the unity of the demo
cratic party, to the personal .popularity
claimed for the democratic candidate up
state, and to the historic fact that New
York governor running for a second term
usually receive a greatly reduced vote.
There r so many different phases and
so many varying elementa entering Into the
tat campaign this year that pjrty line
cem bound to be broken on both aides
and the usual political means of forecast.

The Nebraska railroads have shown their
hands and are out against Sheldon.
Two years ago It was known that the
railroad favored 8hallenberger. The letter
of Tom Allen, atate chairman, then na
now, , begging the democratic press of the
state to publish editorials favoring the
railroad side of the fight for terminal tax
atlon proved the tie-up. Governor Sheldon
I wae then, as now, openly fighting for re-
35 moval of the affairs of the state from rail
i road domination. ' He signed nil the reform
45 ' bills passed by the last legislature, none
bo ; of which were especially relished by the
i railroads and several very obnoxious to the
5 1 bosses. Among these were the law giving
67 ' life "to the. railway .commission; requiring
, railroads to psy their taxes and at the
El same time and In the same manner as
' other citizens; reducing freight rates; re
ducing the rates charged by express com
panies; the 2-cent fare law; the terminal
tax4aw and other similar bills. It Is to
laKe vengeance or trovernor eneioon ror
these measures that the railroads are now
fighting him.
Monday a general alarm was aent to
every. Burlington and Union Pacific station
agent In Nebraska, ordering them to do ail
that can be done for Shallenberger. Just
how far this order will affect the result
is not known.- The Railway Employes?
association was already lined up for Shal
lenberger, and It may not be that the
general order will have much effect out
side the employes.

Final reports on the exact condition of

regarding the ultimate sUct tss of the can
didacy of William H. Taft for the presi
dency. In a single sentence this feeling of ex
treme confidence I expressed by President
Roosevelt, who In speaking of tbs hotly
contested campaign of th republican
against the democrats, declared:
"We've got them beaten to a frarile."
In administration circles there Is an
equally strong feeling of. confidence for
the success of the republican ticket.

LINCOLN, Nov. 2. (Special Telegram.)
Dr. E. Arthur Carr, deposed secretary of
the United Civic league of Lincoln, who
sent out the slanderous letter about Judge
Taft on the letter head of the league, ha
not only been branded by the league offi
cers for the outrage, but It ha been proven
true that he had th letterhead printed
after having been fired from hi Job.
The original letterhead upon which his
name appeared aa secretary of th league
did not contain th union label and the
letterhead: - he sent out doe contain th
label. A comparison of th two letterheads
shaw jthat. different ouiamerrt .want need
and tn some case different type. Dr. Carr
today Is busy driving over Lincoln tacking
up Bryan pictures. He Is one of the head
leaders of th Bryan blowout scheduled for
Following la the official statement Issued
by the president of the league:
l ,rre uwic: ine united civic league
has noticed that political letter have been
sent over the state, signed by E. A. Carr
as secretary, and printed on what pro ports
to be the letter heads of this league. The
league brands this letter and the use of the
league name In thla connection as an out
rage. E. A. Carr, is not the secretary or
an officer of the United Civic league. The
letter paper used by him In which the
league name la used. Is a printed forgery.
Last February, In the midst of the city
campaign, chargea from many directions
were brought .against E. A. Carr as an
officer of the league. These chargea were
too grave to be Ignored, and the league
found It necesasry to reorganise and drop
Mr. Carr.
"The printing and us of letter paper
carrying the name of the league by Mr.
Carr, Is. a serious matter, which will be
taken up by the directors of the organisa
tion at the earliest possible moment.

of ever yielding to the weakness of run

found that I hav not changed from the
