OHIO IN THE LINE Taft Says He Expects That State to Give the Normal Vote to Support of Republicans. Wlieeling. W. Va.. Oct. 15—Judge Taft today concluded his three-day campaign in Ohio. What he thinks of the situation is set forth in the following statcmeut which he Issued today: 'I have now spent three dajs in tic state of Ohio, much of the time industrial and labor centers,, among men who. it is reported, were disaffected and opposed to the Repub- lean party and its candidates. Wherever I appeared I was cordially received and only an occasional Interruption indicated tliat misrepresentations of the attitude of the party and candidates had made a casual Impression. It is my opinion that the attitude of labor toward the Republican party has been misrepresented quite as freely as that of the party and the candidate tow^ard labor, and I find no reason for the .belief that labor win divide It. In my opinion tbe normal Republican labor vote will be cast .as heretofore. In the agricultnraL. regions It is quite apparent that tbe farmers are opposed to a change that will imperil their present pr^perlty. The situation in Olilo is entirely satisfactory andjno one has any reasonable doubt but that the Republican majority will be a snbstantlal one. I certainly Ifttve no donbt on tbe subject myself.- Band Graated Train. Ashland.
