Repub licans In even preponderantly republican atates have conceded that the increased democratic vote will make Improbable the duplication ot the republican majorities at 192 and 1320. This will be a close election . end the winner will probably win by 30 or 40 electoral votes. David Lawrence, whose summary of the situation has been one ot the most comprehensive and Interesting contributions to the entire campaign, epitomizes the whole fight as pro- Smith or anti-Smith., Ife calls it a fortunate " coincidence ' that those democrata who wish to bolt their pirty have the consolation that they are not voting for a dyed-in-the-wool republican ot the traditional aort, hut a man who served under a demo--atle president and publicly recom-T.ended a democratic congress In '"ISIS, and whose republicanism was a source ot considerable question in the contest for delegates prior to the Kansaa City convention. Tha democrata abandoned the far west to Hoover early in the cam paign, but the ocy mountain ter-, ritory and the states east which comprise the mtddlewest, form the chief battle ground and nope ot Al Smith. One ot the most interesting festnres of the campaign in these western sections Is the strong Smith feeling in the cities and the antt-Smith feeling la the county dis tricts. The possibility of a president from the west has captured the weatern imagination, but to offset thin has the slam-banc campaign of Smith which appeals to many la the west and eat alike. Then too, the awing of Norris Is likely to have considerable influence for Smith la the west and middlewest Lawrence fc.ll.vee that Smith must csrry Wisconsin, Nebrasks, one of the Da kotas, Minnesota and Miasourl to be a serioue contender for a ma Ufc -jty ot the electoral college vote?. hepubllran hopes of breaking Into the "Solid South" eeem mora and more futile as election day Bears.

Lake County authorities said today they were far from satisfied that Elfrieda Knssk, 29-year-old book agent burned herself In the furnace of the Lake Bluff no Hoe station. They were without a single definite clue, however, to indicate who might be responsible for the crime. Questioning of several persons relative to ''love cult" probabilities remained as doctors exatnined the charred head ot the girl In an ef fort to determine whether she had been struck In the neck, rendered unconscious, then burned in the furnace. State s Attorney A. V. Smith snd Sheriff Lawrence Doolittle said that they were virtually without leads that might solve the myetery. Cnnlllcllnr Stories They have conflicting statements from the girl as she lay on her death bed at a Lake Forest hos pital. One is to the effect she burned herself, the other that she did not do it. Charles W. Hitchcock, night pol-Uemsn, practically has been eliminated from the Investigation of the mystery. Sheriff Doolittle said. Hitchcock, who tutored Miss Knaak in public apeaking and sslrs psychology and who met her at the village hall several times to aid her In tfce work of book selling she bad entered st his request, broke hie ankle two weeks ago in a fall at his home. His leg had been examined by authorities, snd he hsd been questioned several times. Chief May Be Qnlzred Hitchcock's Interest was only that of a tutor to his pupil. Barney Rosenhagen, police chief, has been questioned by county olfl-cials and detectives. He could throw no light on the mystery. Rosen hagen was the last person known to have been in the village hall he. fore Mies Knaak was found in the basement. Whether Rosenhagen would be questioned further. Smith today rpfused to divulge. The pol Ire chief said be had received a telephone rail advising him to "leave town." that "he burned the girl." He dismissed it wss a smile. hut said his wife was so alarmed she had to have a doctor. Rosenhagen became angry when he was questioned. The case wss taken out of his hands early in the Investigation. Rosenhagen failed to notify county officials until several hours after Miss Knaak was taken to the hospital. This he admitted, explaining he didn't know they would be Interested. (berk Girl's Actions A check has been marie on all known North Shore morons, but nothing availed. Detectives today began to check on the number of keys to the town ball, and their possessors. Authorities had successfully checked Miss Knaak's actions from the time she left Chicago on an electric train Monday evening until she arrived at the police station at Lake Bluff, about 10 p. m. She told her brother. Alvin Knaak, she stopped at Highland Park to canvass a sale for her books. She boarded the car for Lake Bluff and was seen on It She admitted going to the police station, and finding the place locked, said she returned to the depot, but nissed a car to Highland Park which la oa the way to Deerflcld, ber home. She said she wsndered through a small psrk near the village hall then, becoming cold, went to the station, and entered the basement through a rear door. What transpired in the underground rooms rf the hall has furnished probably tha greatest mystery since the Hall-Mills murdef rase. Janitor Finds Girl At 7 a. m. the following day.

The time for making j application for ballots by Madison : resident living elsewhere or by sick ! people ended Saturday. Mr. Winckler declares that much of the voting by affidavit can be avoided if those who made out regis-1 tiallon cards Improperly call at his office. They will be informed at the election booth that their names do not sppear on the poll list. If they call at the citv clerk's office they can complete their registration and will be presented with a certificate. entitling them to vote without afti davit. Tote F.arly, Warning In former campaigns, warnings have been issued to voters that ti e go to the polls as early as possible to avoid congestion during the clos ing hours.

Any American would be proud of the statement you have made and I am sincerely grateful not only for it but for the confidence and encouragement which yon have given me in the whole of the last seven years."

South Baldwin street, Kast Washington avenue, the Yahara river and Lake Monona will become part of '.he third ward. However, the electors living within these boundaries III vote In the first precinct of the lxth ward at this election. After Jan. 1 the precinct boundsries of the sixth ward will be changed, as that part of the first precinct which will be left Is too small compared with the two other precincts. The change will require re-arranging of the registration list after next Tnta.-. election.

Anderson at the First Methodist rhurt-h Saturdsy afternoon. Col. Anderson died Thursday morning after a brief illness of pneumonia. Professor Roe told several hun dred friends, who had gathered at the services, that he met Col. An derson at the home or Prof. S. W. Oilman 10 years ago snd that his love and admiration for him continued to grow more and more. He spoke of the love which Col. Anderson had for his fellowmen. especially children of whom he was particularly Jtnrt. Col. Anderton taught a hoys' class In the First Methodist Sunday school for a number of years and Professor Moe said he delighted to take the youngsters out on Jaunts. Col. Anderson, as was pointed out by the speaker, loved the outdoors. Karh Sunday he brought his grandchildren to the j Sunday school. Other children! would gather around him and lis-1 ten to Ilia talks. Professor Roe also recalled thst Col. Anderson was a lover ot books and poetry. He read some or the poems Col. Anderson loved so well. the polls during the morning hours ! Twenty-five years ago Col.

So far as Wisconsin is concerned the indications point strongly to the election ot Walter J. Kohler for governor. Officials of the democratic atate central committee are claiming they expect a plurality for Mayor Albert G. Schmedeman. Directors of the republican campaign seem to take Mr. Kohler's elction by a large plurality for granted. Although almost all authorities credit Wisconsin as being a doubtful state and in none of the estimates is it being placed r i certain for either the republican presidential candi-dae, Herbert Hoover, or the dema- icratic presidential candidate, Alfred E. Smith, there has, uuquestionally been during the past 10 days a trend toward Hoover. Whether the Smith sentiment in the state before the trend was so large as to give the democratic candidate for president a Wisconsin plurality. Smith Strong In South If Alfred K. Smith carries Wisconsin, it must be through support obtained south of the 44th parallel, which Is a line running north of Oshkosh. The pluralities he must receive must come alo from the Counties in this 4rrltoi1rWiot In the firslf congressional dUfi M, apart of Ihr-t section of the s&J Thefhi district will give at leaM from ll.tU to 15,000 plurality to Herbert Hoo-ever. The country north of the 42nd parallel, the democratic candidate for president will make few gains except In Brown, Manitowoc and Ke-yaunee counties. The remainder of that section of the state will support the candidacy of Herbert Hoover 1th a large vote. Wisconsin will, undoubtedly, cast the largest vote In history. The vote may reach a million and there are few watchers of the election who do not expect that it will be over 300,000. Wherever registration is demanded by statute, it has been large. Madison is expected to cast, on a registration of 2!t.00, almost that number of voles. The same is true of other cities in the state. The predictions of the vote of Milwaukee county are all the way from 120,000 to 150,000. Campaign Spectacular In many ways the campaign has been one of the most spectacular in the history of the state. Especially has this been true of the state campaign, with its accompanying in quiries In the John Doe proceedings before Judge S. R. Schein into the expenditures of the primsry election campaign for Mr. Kohler and the Inquiry also In progress intc the cost of the campaign for the Blaine-I.a Follette people. The campaign has also been unique in the absence of the Vnited States senators, one of whom, Robert M. La Follette, Is running as a candidate on the republican ticket for i-e-electlon. from the support of the republican national and state candidates. The other senator, John J. Blaine, also claiming to be a rfrpubllrsn, has even gone so far as to take the stump for Smith, democratic randldate fo Seriously III 7 Vya 1BK R. MlAHiX - BEN R.
