"Thp close of f >i' cnmpiiiRn finds the Republican mana/crs confidently Rwaiting the outcome," Is the report • that Mr. Scott brings home with him from ChicaRO. "Six weeks aco," siiys Mr. Scot I they were batllinf; against trentendotis oddR. Th» 'party seemed hopelessly divided. .Four weeks ago they were encournRod and. two weeks ago they began, for the first time, to believe that President Taft had ev<n more than a fighting chance. The change In their attitude was due to the fact that there developed al) over the country a very decided Taft wave. Its existence became ptanlfest In reports which came to headquarters simultaneously from all sections of the country. It was born of a sudden realization that the protective system,under •which the country has develoi>fd was menaced. The party managers had been hammering- this fact Into the minds of the voters, took advantage of the turn of the tide and redoubled their efforts. 'Taft and continued pros perity was made the watchword. Literature dealing with the tariff was i sent out by. the load. Orators were in, structed to vividly portray the depression and disaster of thp last Democrat ic administration and to ask the people why there should bo a change. Woodrow Wilson 's assertion in his his- torj-. that the crisis of 1S93-1897 was not passed until the Republican ad- i ministration came Into power, was extensively published. The whole battery of campaign material was centered upon the free trade platform and policies of the Democratic party and when this had been done. Republicans everywhere became encouraged and fought with something like the old time party' spirit. "Another factor which developed as the campaign tirogrossed «as the impossibility of Roosevelt's electron. It was demonstrated mathematically that Roosevelt in order to win, must receive eight out of fen Republican votes cast in the election, and it was universally cohcodod, "ven among hi.s most ardent adherents, that he conld not obtain this large percentage. ^^'hen the Republicans realized that the contest was between T:ii:t and Wilson and tliat ;) vote for Roosevelt was half a vote for the Democratic candidate there was a marked'decrease in the Third party sentiment. In addition to this, tho Taft wave was given additional Imix'tus liy the. accrssion of D <miocrat8 wlio believe in protection and who do not to see a change in business conditions. These were elements tlmt entered into the political situation in ilie past tliree woeks of the campaig and changed the complexion of affairs. "On the eve of elertion the Republican managers at the Niitional headquarters in Chicago claim 31.'> electoral votes for President Taft. They cnn cede only the Southern States and California and South Dakota to Wilson a total of 132 votes; and place Colorado. KansLis. Kentucky; Nebraska. Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia in the doubtful column. As a matter 6f fact each one of these doubtful states will probably go Democratic, although there is a possibility that the protection sentiment in New .Jersey and West Virginia may finally bring those states into the Republican column, and 1 feel personally that there Is a fighting chance to carry Kansas for Taft. - "The claim of 315 electoral votes . for Taft undoubtedly gives to the President the l)enefit of everj- doubt. At the same time, an analysis of the situation in all the western states shows that the President will now be successful in many states where, six weeks ago, he would have been a certain loser. Beginning with the Pacific Coast, it may be said that Taft will surely earn* Washington bj probably 25,000 w.'th a chance of carrying Oregon. California is conceded to the Democrats, inasmuch as the regular Republicans, who have no electors ontlje ballot,"will vote for Wilson rather than for Roosevelt. The Rockj- Mountain states with the exception of Colorado, will probably go Republi- i can. In Montana, Idaho, Utah. New- Mexico and Arlsona the raising of wool is a great intlustrj- and the action of the Democrats in putting wool on the free list, thtis insuring ^n open door for the importation of the Argentine and Australia product, has fright cned the shVp men. Irrespective of party. The mining interests in some of these states is also fearful of free lead. It is expected that the protection issue will:prevail in these states. Nebraska, wjiich went Democratic • four years ago. is likely to go Democratic again, especially as the Republican*, have had trouble in getting their electoral ticket on the ballot. Those who have been managing the Taft fight in Iowa are confident of victor}-, while the Republicans of Mis- eoufi are sanguine of success.' "It Is undeniable, how-ever," concluded Mr. Scott, "that, any predtcUon that may be mad« as to the result of THE WEATHER.

It has been impossible for any parly to make anything like a complete poll of any state, because so large a proportion of the voters have refused to commit themselves. It is entirely probable that the election will bo decided by the votes of men who did not know 24 hours ago how they were going to cast their ballot. The only thing 1 feel sure of is that every man in the United States who wants Taft to remain President goes to the polls .nnd votes for hira he-«-lll hi> elected." As DlnK-tor of Publicity. Mr. Scott had supervision of all the literature that has gone out of the Chicago headquarters nnd of nil the campaign press matter that has been sent out to the iiewspn|M>rs of the country. He has also had to deal with the innumerable mtiltitude who always descend u|>on a campaign committee with all sorts of advertising schemes and to keep in touch with the party machinery in the 26 states assigned to the Chicago division. It has beej a man's job, and whHle Mr. Scott has enjoyed the work he makes no secret of the fact that he is glad the cura- paign is over. In response to an Insistent request 5Ir. Scott spoke at Yates Center this afternoon. He will return on the 7 o'clock train and will close the campaign in lola, as has been his custom for manv years, with a speech at the Grand Theatre.

Nov. 4.—The Turkish Ambassador here has been directed by the Ottoman government to inform Great Britain of Turkey's willingness to receive assistance' in bringing about a susitenslon of hostilities with a view to pence. Tewflk Pasha, Immediately on receipt of the communication from Constantinople, went to the foreign olllce nnd conferred with Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Minister for two hours. The Balkan nations and Greece are persistent In their determination that Turkey must arrange directly with them the terms of peace. Their attitude was emphasized In a statement from ofllclal sources which says: "The Turkish proposal, of peace is satisfactory insofar as It shows a desire to prevent further bloodshed. As regards foreign Intervention however, there seems to be no chance of the Balkan states listening to any foreign consuls while waiting for the arrangement of conditions of pence. These must be settled between the Balkan states and.Turkey direct." The Turkish army occupying a line from Tcherlu to Istrandia, was repulsed today by the Bulgarians, according to a dispatch from Sofia. Defeat was B Rout. London, Nov. 3.—The Turkish army is in full retreat on Constantinople and the Turkish government has asked the powers to intervene. An* official bulletin was issued by the government at Constantinople tonight, admitting defeat at the hands of the Bulgarians In the great battle on the Thracean plains. Application was made to the embassy in Constantinople tonight for mediation by the powers to end the hostilities and arrange a peace agreement. The*fightlng on Saturday south of l.ula Burgas, was of the most murderous character. The Turks offered a splendid resistance but were finally overwhelmed by the Bulgarian ar- Jillery fire. This was terrific nnd compelled the Turks to withdraw to the last lines at Tchatalja.. There the Turkish troops intend to make a supreme effort to save the Capital. Reports place the Turkish loss at more than 20.000 killed nnd wounded. Recent announcements here had led the j)eoplo to believe that the tide was turning In favor of the Turkish army. The present announcement Is Intended tx> break the bad news gently. The portes application" to the pow ers for mediation Is not known to the populace, but it Is believed that this action will be approved by the most enlightened classes.

New Orleans, Nov. 4.—The promoters of tonights ten round.battle be- tw-een Wolgast and Joe Mandot said today that the box office receipts will probably reach $30.1)00. Wolgast was guaranteed $10,000 with the privilege of accepting instead fifty per cent of the receipts. Mandot will receive twenty-five per cent of the gate income and $500 expense money. Tom Jones, Wolgast's manager, placed five thousand dollars at even money on the champion today. "If Mandot will not run away continually," said Wolgast this morning, "He will be knocked out in four or five rounds. For the first time slnc« ray operation I am In perfect condition and that means a Waterloo for Mandot." Mandot said he would b^ content to win by out-pointing the lightweight champion. Joe Mandot some five years ag«» was peddling In New Orleans. He has come on fast In the fight game and has a strong following in the South. Last Labor Day he went 20 rounds with Joe Rivers In California. By win ning tonight, he makes a short cut to championship honors, but It Is unlikely that either will win decisively in ten rodnds.'

COXGRESS MAY DECIDE .I'lly .'.ii'i'r; r>(i','ie; .Inly M\^; It... The death of Mr. Sherman increases in a way the interest in the possibiliiy —hardly more than a theoretical possibility, now—of the failure of a majority in the e'.ectoral vote, in- the remotely conceivable event that Gov. ' Wilson should receive le.'is than 26t; votes. In that case the election would be thrown into the House of Repre- sjentatives. which is required by the Constitution to select the President j from among the t 'aree who re- '• spectivoiy the largest proportions of j the electoral total. But in this scion | the IIon.=e is required to vote by State.-, j each casting one 'vote in accirdarce ' with the political complexion of its delegation. The big Democratic majority in the House now is by individuals, not by States. In respect of States there appears to be a deadlock, and it seems evident that the House would fail to elect. This would bring it to the Senate, which would choose the vice-president. The Senate is nominally Republican, but the Progressives hold the balance of power. So Hjng as the candidates for Vice-President were Vice-President Sherman and Gov. Johnson, it was hardly conceivable that the Re/, publicans and Progressives could gei together on either. Now, if the Republican National Committee, in flllin.L' the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Sherman, should select a Progressive, such as Cummins, for example, the possibilities would become Immensely interesting. If. however, the Bull MiH>se National ticket should stand second In the electoral vote, the choice would lie between Go^-. Marshall and Gov. Johnson .and an election, requiring a majority of the Senate, would be most improbable. The whole question, however, appears academic, and probably unfler no conditions will become a practical one In this election. • l:> Ih - .\ -...r'l. ('Iiirai;<i.

In- the tlnal confession that eleared up the niyltery, ad«led a new feature to tlie statnient given yester- ilay by his.wife, ile said he struck Singer down In sclfdcfense when she attacked him with a razor, after he had rebuked her for making, he said, a suggestion to Mrs. Kramer to go out and meet sprac men. Kramer exonorated his wife from all blame In connection with the crime. Kramer, the former clown, high diver and circus acrobat, held out 24 lioiirs longer than his wife. He paced liis ceil all night, begging for a word from the turnkeys, who refused to vduchsafe him a syllable. He heard Ills wife's agonized cries as slie made lier confession yesterday, but could get no information as to their cause or what she was saying. Several times a day he would pass the cell and would pause a second to say "Well, do you want to see meT' Kramer each time refused, but at last broke into tears and begged to be allowed to tell his story. First ho pleaded to see his wife. It was not allow-ed. . "Don't send me back to that cell," he cried, -ni tell it ail." Kramer's story differed from his wife's only in the detail that he claimed self defense in justification. He said he never meant to kill Miss Singej and that he bouAd and gagged her to prevent her making an outcr>-. The man told his life story from the time he ran away from home to join a circus. He said he had been convicted of horse stealing and that he had served IS months in a reformatory. JOHXSOX WOX A GAME. _ «. Pitched Galena to Ylrtory Down at Pittsburg Sunday. Pittsburg. Kas..
