day stands as follows Alabama 20 Arkansas 16 Arizona 6 California 18 Florida 8 Georgia 12 Illinois 35 Indiana 30 Kansas 20 Kentucky 11 Louisiana 10 Maryland 14 Michigan 18 Minnesota 18 Mississippi 18 Missouri 28 Nebraska 16 New Jersey 16 New Mexico 4 New York 7 Ohio 46 Oklahoma 4 Oregon 8 Pennsylvania 4 South Carolina 17 South Dakota 8 Texas 14 Virginia 23 West Virginia 4 Wisconsin 24 North Carolina 4 North Dakota 6 Connecticut 6 Vermont 8 Indian Territory 2 total 548 Here Is a total of 548 votes and there Is not an Intelligent gentleman connected with the opposition combine who does not know when he carefully scans this column that there are twenty votes for McKinley on the first ballot east of the Alleghany mountains nut enumerated or claimed by me There are contested seats claimed by tgie for McKinley as follows Alabama 8 Florida 8 Georgia 6 Kentucky 2 Louisiana 6 Mississippi 10 Pennsylvania 2 Tennessee 4 Texas 8 Virginia 6 total 60 This is a liberal statement for some of the contestants of the McKinley delegates have already informed us that they will not prosecute their contests but allowing that all these sixty contests are prosecuted and that all sixty are decided against McKinley which Is by no means probable there would rtlll remain of the uncontested instructed and pledged votes on the first ballot already elected 488 Thus It will be seen that allowing the politicians who are superior to us In the management of all these affairs to have their own way upon every one of these contests and unseat every one of the contesting McKinley delegates still then McKinley will have a sweeping majority As I figure it there are seventy - two delegates to be elected and I think I make a very modest and conservative claim when I say that McKinley will have fifty of these without contests and either pledged or instructed Add these to the 488 uncontested seats and you will have 538 votes on the first ballot beyond all controversy BOOKWALTER GROWING OLD Predicts That Cleveland Will Ron on a Free -
