Washington, Nov. 5.—The elections wrhkb takeiplace In thirteen states tomorrow may develop some Indication of possible tendencies in the national campaign of next year. The fact that contests affecting the national congress are promised In but a few Instances has a somewhat deterring influence, but the more astute political forecasters expect to find some sign which win be significant if not determinative. There are ten general state elections. The keenest interest centers in fn local combats In New York city, Cleveland, San Francisco and Salt . Lake city. In New York the struggle between Ttaanany,and the fusion ticket is re gaiitod <rf vast significance, and most of tbe wacer»,.few and small at best, turn QpoD tbe outcome in that contest. Next to New York battle in popular intemt comes the municipal contest in Cleveland, O. Both Mr. Burton and Mr,' i(^nson are personally known .here, the former being a member and the latter a ,former member of the house of representatives, andi the Interest is personal,as well as political. Salt Lake receives attention because of the prominence of the Mor- .mon question and San Francisco on account of recent occurrences in con- neetkm with the administration of the affairs of that city. . In Massachusetts, ^Maryland, Mississippi. Rhode Island. Kentucky and N(^w Jersey governors will be chosen and In all of them except New Jersey, full tickets. • In Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania and Nebraska the elections will be tof inferior state officers or for mem- liflB of the legislature or county officers. : In all casts tbe results will be care- tully scanned here for signs of cfaahgies which may possibly bear on the more important general conflict of 1908. In Maryland and Virginia the con- t<-sta assume a somewhat more general aspect than in roost others be. cause the elections will have a direct : influence on campaign^;. The election In Miaryland will cover not only all the state offices,, but a legislature ^ieb will be called upon to select a ehcirt term United States senator to fSfi out the unexpired term of the late Sfnator Gorman and a long term senator will begin In 1908. when tlie term for which Mr. Gorman was elected, will expire. Th» Virginia election was deslgn- •tf to fill only tbe county offices and elret members of the legislature, but the death of Representative Rlxey ne- CMsltates fcbooBlni; his successor.
