Cast in Ohio Expected
WARM FINISH IN INDIANA
New York, Nov. 6 The national
chairman of the democratic and re
publican committees were both busy
today, received final reports on the
results of their respective campaigns,
but neither had anything to add to
theif already published predictions.
Both reiterated their confidence of
victory tomorrow and Republican
Chairman Willcox's statement was:
"Its all over but the shouting."
Chairman McCormick, democratic
committeeman, received a visit from
Secretary of Commerce Redfield, who
recently made a tour of Ohio, Indiana,
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. He
told the chairman that these states
were "undoubtedly safely democratic."
Illinois Safely Republican.
Chicago, Nov. 6. Alvin T. Hert,
manager of western republican na
tional headquarters, said today:
"I am confident that Illinois is safe
ly republican. There has been a
great sweep to Hughes and Fairbanks
in this state in the last ten days, and
as a result I believe Illinois will give
a plurality of between 100,000 and
300,000 for the republican national
Manager Hert received a telegram
from W. H. Gillenwater, republican
stateichairman of New Mexico', stat
ing that Hughes and the republican
congressional candidates in that state
will carry the state by substantial
plnralitics. : - .
Expect Heavy Vote in Ohio.
Columbus, O., Nov. 6. One of the
heaviest votes ever recorded is ex
pected to be cast in Ohio at tomor
row's elections Both republican and
democratic state chairman claim the
election of all candidates by substan
tial majorities. i ....
W. L. Finley, democratic state
chairman, issued a statement saying
President Wilson and the entire ticket
will carry Ohio by 100,000 votes, while
Charles Hatfield, republican . state
chairman, predicted that' Hughes,
Governor- Willis and Myron T. Her
rick will carry the state by "from
60,000 to. 100,000." '.-
Both campaign .headquarters were
agreed that there is seemingly more
interest in Ohio over the election of
a president than of the state ticket.
State issues, including taxation and
workmen's compensation insurance
have been the principal issues at stake
in the campaign of Governor Frank
B. Willis, republican, and ex-Governor
James M- Cox, democrat
Much interest centers around ' the
vote for United States senator. Sena

nominee, started this morning on a
whirlwind trip through the state with
thirteen speeches before him.

Final Appeals to the Elec

DEMOCRATS MAKE CLAIMS
New York, Nov. 6. With Governor
Whitman and Samuel Seabury, re
publican and democratic candidates
for governor, respectively, making
final appeals to voters of this city,
the New York campaign closed to
night, only a few hours before the
polls opened. The head of each tick
et joined his campaign managers in
predicting with serene confidence the
outcome of the balloting.
Because New York is regarded as a
pivotal state in the presidential elec
tion, chief popular interest in tomor
row's voting centered in the contest
between President Wilson and Charles
E. Hughes. .Voters of the state will
be called on, however, to elect a com
plete state ticket in addition to gover
nor and United States senator. There
also will be chosen a congressional

Forecast tonight of the result de
pends upon whether the person mak
ing the prediction is a democrat or
republican. ' Both sides agreed that
the tide will be turned on the na
tional ticket by those who voted as
progressives four years ago. The
combined Taft and Roosevelt vote in
1912 was 845,580, as compared with
655,573 for Wilson. In Greater New
York, which the republicans concede
will return a democratic plurality this
year, the Taft-Roosevelt vote togeth

While the republicans contend the
greater part of those who supported
Roosevelt four years ago will swing
to Hughes this year, the democrats
scoff at their claims. , ,

democratic and republican state chair
men expressing entire confidence in
the outcome tomorrow the New Jer

Walter E. Edge, republican candidate
for governor, and R. O. Withpenn,
his democratic opponent, made their
final speeches tonight. .
The republican state chairman pre
dicted that the national and state
tickets would win bv 45.000. while the
democrats dafmed thcstate by 20,000.
Besides a governor and United states

. On the eve of tomorrow's election
the chairmen of both the republican
and ..democratic . state committees
claimed victory by at least 100,000.
Each side predicted tonight that it
would make gains in the congres
sional, delegation and in the state sen
ate and assembly:
Detroit, Mich., Nov." 6. Prepara
tions were completed tonight to han
dle the election in Michigan tomor
row, which is expected to bring out
the heaviest vote in the state's his
tory. The fight to make Michigan
dry by the passage of a con
stitutional amendment for prohibition
overshadowed even the presidential
struggle. Dry and wet forces were
each claiming victory.
It i expected that at least 120,000
persons will vote here.
Republican and democratic state
leaders reiterated previous claims that
their presidential candidate would
carry Michigan. The republicans pre
dicted the election of a republican
congressman in each of the thirteen
districts. The chairman of the demo
cratic committee declared that Con
gressman Doremus and Congressman
Beaks would be re-elected and said
they had hopes that democrats would
gain three more congressmen.
St. Paul, Nov. 6. Old-fashioned'
rallies closed the campaign in Minne
sota tonight and both democratic and
republican leaders reiterated predic
tions of victory for their ticket. Re
publicans depend on the usual majori
ties given their candidates to carry
the state for Hughes. Frank R. Kel

senator, and Governor Burnquist,

Montpelier, Vt., Nov. 6. Estimates
that Hughes would carry Vermont by
170,000, and that Horace R. Graham,
republican candidate for governor,
would win by 20,000, were made to
night by Stanley S. Wilson, chairman
of the republican state committee
Fargo, N. D., Nov. 6. The cam
paign of John Burke, democratic can
didate for United States senator, has
attracted most attention in North Da
kota. Mr. Burke is opposing Senator
McCtimber, whose friends predict his
election in spite of the campaign of
the democrats. Republicans say lack
of harmony among their rivals will
aid them, but the democrats declare
they will deliver the five electoral
votes to Wilson by a small plurality.
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 6. Both
republican and democratic campaign
managers tonight reiterated their
claims of victory tomorrow by wide
margins. The attitude of the 20,000
new voters and the trend of the pro
gressive vote are factors which are
expected to figure largely in the out
come. Many of the new voters came
from other states to work in muni
tions factories. . ,

Convention of Nebraska State
Teachers' Association Will
LIST ROOMS TOR VISITORS
Teachers of the schools in Greater
Omaha are registering this afternoon
for the . convention of the Nebraska
State Teachers' association. Treas
urer J: F. Matthews of the state as
sociation has installed, a desk at the
Hotel Rome, where he is receiving the
registrations of a lot of the local
teachers. The local teachers are to
register before tonight and thus
get many thousands of the enroll
ments out of the way before the big
enrollment starts Wednesday1 morn
ing, the morning of the convention.
This system of enrolling the Omaha
teachers a few days before the con
vention opens, has been very success
ful in the last few years in averting
the congestion that would otherwise
result when the teachers begin to
flood in from out in the state.
' Delegates when enrolling get a bal
lot on which they vote tui the various
offices of the association for the en
suing year. This is merely a primary
election for the nomination of officers.
The five highest for each office be
come the candidates whose names go
on the ballot that is sent out later by
mail for the final vote. .
Little activity has been noted thus
far in the politics of the association,
except the candidacy of Miss Ruth
Pyrtle of Lincoln for president of
the association, backed by an organ
ization, of womeji,,tKlwr, frnnvovei
the state. . , , .
J. F. Matthews, treasurer of the as
sociation for the last several years, is
a candidate for re-election to that
position. . ;
. . Demand for Rooms.
Rooms for the visiting teachers are
going to be in great demand. Ar
rangements have been made to have
the Young Men's Christian association
handle a rooming bureau this year,
and persons who have good rooms for
teachers on car. lines not too far out
are reporting the fact' to the Young
Men's Christian association, where the
rooms are listed. Teachers coming in
and not knowing where they may find
rooms, will be directed to some of
these listed rooms by calling at the
Young Men'a Christian association
Four Killed as Jitney
Is Struck by Train
i Camden, N. J., Nov. 6. -Three men
and a woman were killed by a Penn
sylvania railroad train which struck
a jitney bus in which they were rid
ing at Freeman station, near here,
One of the passengers was identi
fied as Edward Stahlknect, an in
surance inspector of Philadelphia. The
other men and the woman have not
yet been identified.
Once More, Lest We Forget
Once more, lest we forget, let the people of Omaha be
reminded of the losses sustained by this city under the pres
ent democratic administration at Washington.
, The army quartermaster's department has been re
moved to Chicago.
The Indian supply depot has been sent to San Fran
cisco. The signal service school has been transferred from Fort
Omaha to Fort Leavenworth.
The food inspection department, that had its headquar
ters here, has been taken away.
The Federal Reserve bank, that by rights belonged to
Omaha, was handed to Kansas City, even though it put two
of the twelve banks in the one state of Missouri.
The balloon aviation station, recommended for Omaha
by the chief signal officer, has been held up by the Ohio sec
retary of war as a promised bribe to Akron on condition
that Ohio go democratic.
Lest we forget, let it be recalled that when Omaha
wanted to present its claims for the Federal Reserve bank,"
asking the aid of Senator Hitchcock was out of the question,
because he was then so deplorably "in bad", with the Wilson
administration that his attempt to help would have been a
Remember, too, that when Omaha decided to go after
one of the new Federal Land banks and the committee in
charge besought Senator Hitchcock to champion Omaha's
claim, he bluntly refused to do so.
Yet our democratic senator has the audacity to ask for '
Omaha votes to re-elect him and to keep the democratic ad-.
ministration in power! ,
The way for Omaha to stand up for Omaha is to vote for
Hughes for president, for John L. Kennedy for United States
senator and for Ben S. Baker for congress. .
