NEW YORK SAFE FOR
Votes Cast and Registry Give
Republicans Great Confi
dence of Carrying State.
FIGURES SUPPORT CLAIM
' N'txv York. Xov. 4. (Special Tele
gram.) N'ew York s:ate ,s republican
tins j'ear by at least 50.000. according
to an analysis of the political situation
here by Frederick C Tanner, chair
man of the republican state commit
tee. Thi means forty-five sure elec
toral votes for Hughes.
"The total vote in this s'ate will in
nil probability exceed 1 .600.000. as it
his in the last three presidential
years." said Mr. Tanner. "No candi
date on the democratic ticket in this
state has ever received more than
"50.000 votes. Xo republican candi
date for president or governor in any
of the last three presidential years
has received in this state less than
800.000 votes, except in 1912, when the
republican vote was divided between
the republican and progressive candi
dates. The vote is not so divided this
year, most of the voters who were
progressives four years ago have re
turned to the republican party, and
those who continue to maintain a
separate party have endorsed the re
publican candidates for president and
"The democrat vote has been falling
off since 1908 in Xew York state. In
that year the democratic vote for gov
ernor was 735.189. in 1910 it was 689,
700. in 1912, 649,559.
"In 1914 the highest candidate on
the democratic ticket receivtd 646,401
and in 1915 the' total democratic vote
for members of the assembly was
"In 1912 tljc republican vote for
governor was 444,105, in 1914 it was
586,701 and in 1915 the total repub
lican vote for members of the assem
hlv 700 ?V
"The republican enrollment for this
year increased nearly 100,(1 W. while
the democratic enrollment fell off.
The republican enrollment for 1915-16
was 729,710, as compared with 636,405
for the preceding year, while the dem
ocratic enrollment was 651,231, as
compared with 655,047. All the heavy
gains in registration this year have
been recorded from republican dis
tricts. In Manhattan, Tammany's
stronghold, the registration fell off.
. i "The steady falling off in the demo
cratic vote, and the rapid increase in
the republican vote, the falling off in
the democratic enrollment, and the
marked republican gain, and finally
the falling off of registration in the
strongest democratic territory and the
- heavy gains in republican sections, to
gether with the results of the actual
canvass that has been made in every
county, indicate beyond the shadow of
a doubt the success of the entire re
publican ticket, state and national."
False Arrest Leads
' To Suit for $28,775
. Maurice Lonergan has filed suit
with the clerk of the district court
asking damages to the amount of
$28,775 from the Burlington railroad.
False arrest is alleged. ,
Omaha Business Men Who Have
Been Associated Nearly Fifty Years

1 lrU3 a
Henry A. Thompson and Charles
C. Belden are this week celebrating
their thirtieth anniversary of busi
ness in Omaha, although their busi
ness partnersiip dates back nearly a
half century. The firm of Thompson
& Belden opened their first store in
Omaha in 1886, on the site of the
Woodmen of the World building.
Their next location was where the
Brandeis store is now, from whence
they moved to the present site at
btxteentn and Howard.
Congratulations are pouring in
from all parts of the country to Mr.
ThomDson and Mr. Belden. Em-
oloves of many years standing are
celebrating the "birthday" of the
store as well.
Fitch Has Not Withdrawn
From the Judgeship Race
It has been erroneously published
that Attorney F. W. Fitch has with
drawn his name as a candidate for
municipal judge. F. W. Fitch is a
candidate for district judge, and never
was a candidate for municipal' judge,
and . he has .not withdrawn. This
error seems to have accrued by some
mistake in the office of Harley Moor
head over a communication which was
sent in by one "David Fitch." The
district ludtces have nothing what
ever to do, and no connection, with
the office of Harley Moorhead, the
election commissioner, excepting
when it comes to counting the votes.

bam O. Hon, candidate for the
house, reviewed his past record in the
house and declared that if he looked
as good to the club members as the
members looked to him he was sure
they would all vote for him.
Don't Want Tax Eaters.
Senator John M. McFarland, candi
date for the senate, said: "You men
are alt taxpayers, and you want to
elect men to the legislature who
know how to conserve the interests of
.he taxpayers. Too often, when men
are elected to the legislature, they
become tax eaters. Our platform
shows that we are for the best inter
ests of Omaha and the community."
James Walsh, candidate for the
house, said he had lived here forty
three years and was a member of the
1907 legislature, the one he said which
still bears the reputation of having
brought forth the most reform legis
lation in the history of the state. "If
this ren'iblican delegation is elected
this fall," he said, "the legislature
will be a repetition of the 1M)7 record
for reform legislation."
John Larson, candidate for the
house, thanked the club for its sup
port of him when be ran two years
and assured tlicni that if elected
this time he would not be any more
radical than he had been during the
last session, and that at that time he
stood only for the reform measures,
the elimination of the sheriff fee-grab,
the consolidation of Greater Omaha,
and other reform and progressive
Bert C. Miner, candidate for the
senate, declared if elected lie 'would

then of the state.

House, said: "Two years ago f prom
ised to work for Omaha and Douglas
county. I did so, 'and 1 now appeal to
you for your votes for re-election. II
elected I will use every effort to im
prove what 1 did two years ago."
P, J. Trainor gave his own record
as public official down to mayor of
South Omaha, and appealed for sup
port to put him in the ho;e.
Dr. Harry A. Foster assured the
club men he was on the ticket, and
said: "If you feel like endorsing what
the party has done in the legislate"
I'd like to have your support."
j J. Frank Burgess, candidate for
member of the house, said he had
voted for a county workhouse, the
municipal right bill, good roads,
prison reform and anti-sheriff fee
grab, and he wished to go before the
voters on that record.
Wants to Be Ee-Elected.
Senator C. L. Saunders said: "It is
hardly necessary for me to stand be
fore my own club and tell the mem
bers what I will do. If you are satis
fied with what I did, I'd like to be re
elected. I would not like to be re
turned to the legislature, however, un
less with a delegation like this, for if
the delegation is divided it is not
Harry HJickett, candidate for the
senate, told of his personal hobbies in
the city to provide playgrounds for
the kiddies, and declared himself for
good roads and everything for the
good of Omaha and the county.
John W. Cooper declared capital
and labor to be twin brothers, and
declared it the duty of the legislature
not to enact legislation detrimental to

capital out of the state," he said, "and
should do everything to bring it within
Robert C Druesedow said- "I served
you faithfully during the last two ses
sions and I am proud of my record.

It does not'show on dollar contributed by any Brewer or Saloon-keeper.
Everybody knows the Brewers are financing 'this campaign. Their sworn state
ment denies it.
We call upon the County Attorney to prosecute the Brewers and their suborned
agents for perjury.
The Brewers are afraid to let the people know that they have contributed money
to pay for this csmpaign.
They have filed no statement showing the enormous corruption fund which they
have contributed to suborn newspapers, register fraudulent votes, colonise voters and
steal the election.
The people know this and the next legislature will show it up.
THE BREWERS contracted with about 600 weekly newspapers in Nebraska at
an average of $76 per paper, total $37,600.00.
THE BREWERS spent over $600 on one ad in one Omaha paper this week. -THE
BREWERS have spent $60,000.00 for newspaper advertising
THE BREWERS have sepent that much more in mailing their fake literature.
They have spent unknown thousanda to register fraudulent votes and to corrupt
the election. t '
