(Special Tele grm.) "The campaign li practically ended and there ii nothing to it but the election of Hughei," said William R. Willcox, chairman of the republic an national committee at republican national headquarter) here today. "When the yote are counted on the night of November 7, it will be found that at least .314 Hughes and pair banks electors have been chosen and it may be considerable number more. I look for an old-time victory. Everything points that way. "Remember that this is a republican country. There are more republic ans in it thati there are democrats. The repblicans outnumber the demo crots in normal timet by more than a : million. They . outnumber the democrats in many states, and the aggregate of the electoral votes of the sure republican states is much greater than the aggregate of the electoral votes of the sure democratic ttatea. New Deal Thia Year.... "It Is only when the republican party is suffering from some untoward cir cumstances sucn al operated against . it four years ago, that the democratic have any chance to win a national election in this country. - The trouble with the democratic managers in their extravagant claims for victory this year is that they are still thinking and talking in terms ot 1912,. whereas this is 1916. .The republicans are actini. together this year and they very much outnumber the other fel lows. ..... . "It is perfectly obvious that Mr. McCormick and bis colleagues, in put ting out their extraordinary claims, figure the states which gave their electoral vote to Wilson in 1912 as democratic, but the fact is that there were no more democratic states in 1912 than usual. Mr. Wilson carried only fourteen states four vears asro. the same old solid south and nothing more. They were: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Caro lina Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tenh essee, Texas and Virginia. "Those are the only states in which Mr. Wilson secured the majority of the popular vote, and it is only those states which he can be said to have carried. Every other state in the un ion voted against him, "Mr. Roosevelt secured the electoral vote of six states, California, Michi gan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Washington, and Mr. Taft two states, Utah and Vermont The remaining twenty-six states gave their electoral votes to Wilson, but in each case by a minority vote, in each case against the expressed preference of the, majority of those who voted. .1 be electoral vote of these twenty six states aggregates 281, or more than a majority of the electoral Col lege. These states alone, all of which voted agsinif' Wilson four years ago, can elect his successor. These states are Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, MassachSsetti, Mis souri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey. New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, West Virginia,' Wisconsin and Wyoming. .' How Nineteen 8tooA "In nineteen of these states the ma jority adverse to Mr. Wilson was sub stantial, running in some cases up into the hundred) of thousands. In the other eight cases it was not so large, but that group of eight includes four statea which not even Mr. McCor mick would think of putting into the Wilson column Maine, New Hamp shire, Rhode Island and North Da kota. The other four of them, Mary land, Missouri, Nevada and New Mexico, are all close and doubtful, "Mr. McCormick has been amusing himself, by claiming Connecticut where the majority adverse to Wilson in 1912 was 27,892; Illinois, where it waa 245,014;. Massachusetts, where it was 134,768; Michigan, where it was 216,077,: and Minnesota, where it was 83,764, The democratic managers put , New York in the list ot their claims, despite the adverse vote of 189,974 that it gave four years ago,, and de spite the fact that twice since 1912 it has gon republican -by more ' than 100,000. In Ohio, which they are vociferously calling . their own this year, they hav - to overcome an ad verse majority 6J,141. . ' . .. vu ."lows, and- Kansas, both- of which have been listed, by Mr. McCormick and his rainbowjchasera as 'doubtful, gave 93,305 and 51,392 against Wilson in 1912. And-so .it -goes through the whole list Even slight consideration of these figures gives a clear idea of the kind of mehtal exercise Mr. Mc Cormick has to take In order to work 'himself up to the kind of claims he is putting out." . No Change of Sentiment "Nothing hair, happened- since 1912 to change sentiment in these states in favor ot Mr. Wilson and the demo cratic party. On the contrary, much has occurred to increase the feeling against him. The democratic man agers are loudly claiming that Mr. Wilson's obvious courtship of the la bor vote will be reflected in the re turns. I do not believe it The labor vote of this conutry is not a class vote and cannot be delivered in bulk. And for every vote that Mr. Wilson wins by such methods he will find that he has alienated at least one other vote from the laboring men, who are not caught by his schemes, to say nothing of the independent voters he has lost by those methods. I repeat, this coun try is republican, and it is going to elect a-republican administration and congress next week. Every test that i has been made and every, count that has been had shows the result. Charles Evans Hughes will succeed Woodrow Wilson as president on next inaugura tion day." ' Traveling Man Found Dead. ' Beatrice. Neb., Oct 30. (Special Telegram.) James Trout, traveling representative for a Fremont nursery, was found dead in a barn at Wymore today, where he had received a ship ment of trees for, delivery.

Nevertheless the first reports, In complete and transmitted by the American consul .'"as provisional,". caused some uneasiness. ' . -.The report on the destruction of the Marina refers to the ship as "a British horse transport" If it turns out that it was, in fact, in the trans port service of the British government it may be found that the mixed crew of British and American horse tend ers could claim none of the immunity against attack without warning that attaches to a merchant ship. ' Orders were dispatched at once to gather all information to determine (the status of the Marina and its crew. Although no American lives were lost in the attack on the Rowanmore and the ship altered its own status if it made an attempt to escape of ficials were disturbed by the report that the boats were shelled after they had cleared from the abandoned ship. The facts are expected to be deter mined by investigation, which was or dered begun at, once, t British Horse Transport' H ' The following Is a summary of Consul Frost's dispatch: '5- The British horse transport Marina, with a mixed crew of British and Americans Was reported sunk without warning by a German sub marine gun fire at 3j. m.

Mr. Hitchcock gave a dollar to the switchman's ball, A. L. Short, being the solicitor.

Mr. Hitchcock has spent up to date $.1,481.84 and he has given his word that he will spend $1,371.52 additional.

C-JL. aMatsMuaa SBJ WEEKS DruMistt TABLETS psa D. Wamuaoe., Dm Uowaa, 104 Fitchburg, Mass., Oct. 30. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, in a campaign speech here tonight, read a letter from John Temsjle Lloyd Jeffries of Bos ton, in which the writer stated that Henry Breckenridge, former assistant secretary of war, had several times made to him remarks similar to those attributed to him by Dr. Charles H. Bailey of Tufts college, concerning the alleged elimination by President Wilson of a weakening postscript from the "strict accounta bility" note ot Germany. 'A letter by Dr. Bailey regarding a conversation he had with Mr. Breckenridge on the subject aws read by Senator Lodge at a public meet ing Saturday night and the senator in his address tonight said he pre sented the letter from Mr. Jeffries' additional information. Letter From Jeffries. This letter follows: "Dear Senator Lodge: I have noted in Boston papers your remarks con necting President Wilson with a postscript to one of the so-called Lusitania notes. According to the papers you state that the effect of this postscript was to vitiate the force of the note or purposely to Inform imperial German government that vigor displayed in earier parts of the notes was designed for Anglo-American consupmtion only. According to the press accounts this postscript was added rather surreptitiously and un der star-chamer proceedings and was withdrawn only because the few manly members of the. cabinet hap pened to discover its existence by luck and later threatened to turn the government upside doWn. ,"I assure, you1 sir, I deeply regret being drawn into this affair; but I cannot sit idly by and see you called a liar when I know your statements are true. , , Made Similar Remark). "My friend, . Major Breckinridge, ssval .times made to. me remarks similar," to those reported by Prof. Bailey. I cannot swear to every mi nute detail, for my memory is only human; but the general substance of your statement is correct to my per sonal knowledge. "As I have telegraphed to Major Breckinridge to tell him of my pro posed action, and as his remarks were not secret, and as Prof. Bailey has already !involve.d .the major, I feel obliged to state that I know your statement is true. With regard to Major Breckinridge, he is one of the finest examples of the American gen tleman, jjnd his distinguished family has been famous for its chivalry in the south for years. His statement also is unquestionably , true beyond any possibilit yof doubt. "Believe me, dear Senator Lodge, i' "Your truly, "John Temple Lloyd Jeffries. ' . s i Can't Be Cohtroverted.' ' "The writer, of this letter, Mr. John Jeffries," Senator Lodge said, "is a member of a very, well known family in Boston, a gentleman of honor, and of the highest character and well known to me personally. The evi dence that Mr. Breckinridge made the statement attributed to him above the postscript I therefore think cannot be successfully controverted, and if Mr. Breckinridge made the .statement it can be absolutely believed. . : - "Mr. Breckinridge has sent one or two telegrams in which he refer) to Dr. Bailey and myself in a very angry manner, which is not important but he characteriies his own conversation, which Dr.,Bailey reported, as 'back stairs gossip.' He does himself a great injustice by this because he waa a member of the Wilson administra tion and a most excellent secretary of war. He denies that there was i any threat 6f resignation by Mr. Garri son or others, but he entirely fails to deay the essential point, which was that the postecrip was written and that he and Mr. Garrison saw it No Statement to Make. ''Mr. Garrison said yesterday in Washington: 'I am not being inter viewed on any subject,,. I have no statement of any kind to make.' So that he also refused to deny the ex istence of the postscript, which he certainly would have done if it had been a mere fabrication by Dr. Bailey. Dr. Bailey Is a gentleman f the high est character and standing and ver acity. I have no doubt that he stated the conversation in substance with absolute ruth," ' ' Oot any thins rou'S Ilka to iwopt Via th"SwRgpgro' Colttmnwa v lmmmm-mmm PAYMENT OF THE LOSS.
