Republicans assert that their entire state ticket will he successful, the. plurality expected varying all the way from nn.oco to 100,000. They also express the belief that the political complexion of the congressional delegation will not change in more than wo or three districts, the districts con- -eded to be doubtful being the Third, Sixth- and KiRhth, to ijiYset which the leptiblitaris profess confidence of win- ling in UK- KIwetuh and Twelfth dis- rli-ts. nt present represented by Democrats. The leciflnlure, Republicans say. IH safe in both houj-es. On the other hald the Democratic enders say tin-re will he a plurality 'or their slate ticket of from 40,000 to 00,000; that Democrats will bo elected n all the districts now represented by democrats and In four or five more, mostly in Creator New York. Humored ICcvolt Against IMngron. Detroit, Nov. R.—Although considerate spirit was Injected Into the eam- gn last wei-k It ended quietly as llbe- jan. Judging by tbe registrations a good vote will be polled. There is cor- ain to be some scratching of the heads f the state tickets. The Democrats ire contending against heavy natural tdds, and will be unable to wrest the tate government from Governor I*in- rC'VUJiIess tho di-saftVetJon against the governor in his own tuirty is much greater th:in IH now apparent. Ru- riors of the detei'mination of Repub- cans to cut I'ingree were numerously eported. however, from various sec- ions, friends of United States Sena-' or .Htirro'wp are still coiilident of his e-elctlon by the new legislature. In Itic Hoosii-r .Slut*'. Indianapolis, Nov. S.—The indications re that the vote cast In Indiana will be .buut 10 per cent, short of that of 189(1. 'he campaign by '.he Republicans has een more aggressive than that of the Democrats. Each side is claiming the tate. Not since 1ST:; have the people f the state in an off year voted to ustain the administration In power nt Washington. This historical fact la Busing the Democrats to take courage. The Republicans claim to have taken lie most complete pull In the history of he state. This poll, as exhibited at '.epublican headquarters, indicates a tepubllcan majority of 22,000. -The Democrats have not made public their oil. OtitlimlE In I'f-nnsylviinta.' Philadelphia, Nov. S.—Republican tale Chairman Klkln and Democratic Halo Chairman tlnrrnan make strong lalms for their respective gubernator- al candidates. Klkin gives estimates y counties to support his prediction hat Stone will have 131,000 plurality, bile Carman llgures out a plurality f ,'!B,000 for Jenks. Reports from vari- us counties indicate u falling off In the. ollowing of Swallow, the preacher cun- idate of the Prohibition and honest overnment parties, whom the Indepen- ent voters of the two leading parties irgely favored during'tho. earlier part f tho campaign. Milwaukee, Wis,, Nov. S,—A complete tale ticket, a legislature, with tho ex- eptlon of sixteen hold-over Republlc- n senators, and ten congressmen will e elected. Though the chances favor le Republicans in the election of con- i and legislative) candidates, ui'prlses may be looked for on the out- omo of the state ticket. The Rcpub- cans feel sure of re-electing Oov,crnor Idward Scodeld and the bnlnjice of this icket, while the Democrats claim that heir ticket, with Hiram W. Suwyej H their lender, will be victorious.

"At tin.- opening." said Dr. Schooler, "thi-ro w-ore pracllc.'illy no fucilltU-s for the care of the siek; we wi.-re shurt of mi-ilicincn and had no anparatus by which the st"\vards could prepare tbe mi-dlcines that wi- had.

Requisitions were mail-:- for more, but they were KT-nor.-j'ly di.-.-;ipi'/-ov<-d «( (he cnmr> hcaiiquarters. I don't know requisitions were absolutely turned dovrn. but they were frcqutntly reduced. It was in ref. erencc to the quantity mtlwr than to the articles IheniHelves that difficulties arofu 1 . I think the supply deixirtment issued stores nccr,rii!ng to their ability, but not always with promptness. They had certain hours for issuing supplies, and at ivihi-v IUIK-H nolhlng could be obtnlin d. Tin re was a scarcity of beds In the ho^-piials, |mt 1 never wiw a man lying on the ground. I went through the hos] Itals every morning and In-- quired of every man able lo speak' whether he had been neglected In any way. Very seldom was-there a complaint from a man who was really sick. Sometimes they complained about lack of medicines. Occasionally patients recovering from typhoid fever complained about the diet, just as any convalescent fever patient would at home. Xnrsing Fori-c Sli-Ic. "So far a.s I know, there was never any patient neglected to such an extent as that his chances of recovery were materially reduced. At one time practically half our nursing force were sick or in the guardhouse for Insubordination." Dr. Connor—Why was not a demand made by somebody that better or more nurses should be sent lo that place? Dr. Schooler—I don't know. I wrote the surgeon general once protesting against the dilliculty of securing sup- rdies. Part of the blame rested upon the quartermaster's department. Asked to uive. in as few words as possible, his opinion about the general conditions at Camp Thomas during the ime he. was stationed there, Dr. Schooler said: "In the first place, the quartermaster and surgeons could not a^ree as to the number of tents we should have. Colonel J.^e contended that we were United to a certain number of tents, sev- >ntecn, I think it wap; In (be beginning. Wo afterwards prevailed upon him to glv« us twenty-one. Ills contention s that he could not Issue tents: be- vond tin.- prescribed number. Omso iif Overcrowding, "1 think he based the number of tents upon 130. patients, and when the mim- ter of patlciils became grealer we could lot make him understand that we had o have more tents. It was his refusal to increase that number of tents that :nado the overcrowding. The lack of medicines, tins lack of trained nurses, ind the lack of a sufllcient number of •iurgi'oiis was a material dlfliculty. The .-au?o of thu prevalence of sickness In the camp w.is that we had three regi- iienls who came (here with a great deal of sltkness — the First Mississippi ind the First and Second Arkansas. I'beiv was much typhoid and dysentery n thesi' r< gimenls. I iliinl: the quar- i-rmaster'a deiartmint was largely responsible for tin- great, sickness; the ncdical department (thai is, the supply leparlmcm) was also responsible for iome things. Then we lacked facill- les to make reports on—did not even lave stationery. Wo were told all the MHO that reports must be made," Dr. Connor-So far as you know, was hi re on llr- p irt of any medical ofllccr r Miry.nsi any willful negleci in the -are of the nick?

Mrilli-.ul < I III <er« Mumprrcil. "Fifty per cent, of the sickness," said the doctor, "would not have been li existence had the men not been allowet to leave Chlekmnaumi park on passes.' He gave as his opinion that the medica officers were hampered too much b> officers of higher rank, hut who had nc medical training;. In regard to division hospitals the doctor Kald: "1 thlnl there sliould have been a hospital In Chattunoo'sn where a class of patients could have heen taken who were golni, to be sick any length of time. The di vision hospital," be continued, "iva. never intended for case? where patients were suing- to he sick any length o time." When questioned as to the lad of nurses, the doctor said that he thought holh nurses as well as the officers were overworked. T%v» MUCH for Ono IVr*on. In many cases one nurse was compelled to take cliarEe of twenty, thlrtj and sometimes forty patients during the nlg-ht, which was too much toexpect of one person. No blame could be attached to the doctors, as they would start out in the morning on theli rounds of duty and would be on dut> until late at night. When questioned as to the complaints alwut starvation the doctor said that n great many of these complaints were entirely unwarranted. As to the general conditions surrounding 1 the patients In the hospita" the doctor gave it as his opinion that the average soldier was just as well treated there as they would have been at home, excepting, perhaps, In the line of bathing. In this direction they would possibly have received more attention, but this only affected the comfort of thn soldier and did not necessarily affect the mortality in camp.
