Champ Clark will undoubtedly tret tho

Wilsons strength In tho rural districts
will r. be strong enough to overcome

cities and Inrgcr towns.
The Koosovolt people are claiming 20
nf the 3i", delegates to be chosen directly
by the people, but the Taft manage do
net concede the Colonel 10.
If crowds nt the rallies mean any

chusetts this morning, n patch which
the Colonel trod on Saturday.
I'nhlardl observers say that the as
semblies of people who came out to
hear the President far exceeded In num
bers the gatherings addressed two days
ago by Roosevelt. It was the same to
the north of Hoston this afternoon.
President Taft visited nome of the tex
tile centres where the Colonel talked
this forenoon, and the ovntlons the for
mer received In every city were not
only flattering but reassuring.
It will be surprising If Colonel Roose
velt does get ten delegates. The Re

The Colonel'H mnnagers have been

they have been advertising for Demo

and advertisements asked tho ttnenrolled
voters to call for Republican ballots to
morrow and to vote for Roosevelt. No
distinction has been made between Dem
ocrat and Republicans In their pleas.

It has been noticeable during the
Colonel's tour of tho Stat thnt at his
meetings Democrats have been the
noisiest. This was particularly so In
New I'.edford and at Kail River. Demo
crats who voted as such in the last
Mute primary nre now enrolled as mem
rors of that party and they cannot call
for Republican ballots to-morrow.
Another erstwhile powerful Influence

Insidious nature has becti.nt work, just
a It was In the closing days of the
J'ennsyivnnia campaign In the inter
ests of Roosevelt, and more especially
linn siicclttcniiy against Taft.

country were declaring null ca v that

An unenrolled voter who npplles for
a Democratic or a Republican ballot
to-morrow Is thereby automatically en
rolled as n member of the party whose
ballot he takes. If he takes a Republi
can ballot to-morrow he cannot take a
JVmorcatle ballot at the next State prl
mury unless he changes his party en
rollment within ninety days prior to the
holding of such primary or caucus.
Two weeks ago the Itoosevelt men
were claiming, at the best, ten deb
Kates out of the thirty-six. To-night
they nre claiming eighteen. They say
they will tarry the Second. Third,
Fourth, Sixth, Seventh. Ninth, Tenth,
Eleventh and Fourteenth Congress dis
tricts anil elect two delegates at large.
The Taft men admit that the Sixth
nnd the Fourteenth districts nre bad
spots, but they hope to i.irry them ami

Clark's annexation stieech which killed

him, Clark's characterization of Orover
Cleveland as Mudas Iscatiot' was ex
tremely obnoxious to many thousands

respect and admiration for tho only

past few days everybody has known nnd
commented on the fact that the swing

ARE EAGERLY AWAITED
Xot Likely to Bo Announced
Fntil After tho Funeral
ESTATE MAY BE $150,000,000
Certain Thnt Vincent Astor
Will Como Into tho Bulk
of tho Property.
Definite nuthorltntlve stntement ns to
tho will of Col. John Jacob Astor, who
died on the Titanic, has not yet been
made public, but reports were current
yesterday ns to some of th eprovlslons.
Lewis Cass Ledynrd, representative
of the Astor estate and personal coun
sel or Col. Astor, said that there would
be no statement In regard to the terms
of tho will until tho document had
been filed. Edmund L. Hayllcs, a mem
ber of the same law firm, said that the
will would be filed soon and thnt at
that time the facts in regard to the dis
tribution of the estate would bo made
One of the best defined of the rumors
yesterday wns that the will had been
rend nt tho Astor home at 840 Fifth
uvenuo on Wednesday last, those ores-
cnt being the trustees of the Astor es
tate and Vincent Astor. Mrs. Made
leine Force Astor. the young widow of
Col. Astor, wns too 111 to be present at
me reading, according to the report.
One of the provisions said to hnve
been made In the document is that the
widow shall have the use of the Fifth
avenue house during her lifetime.
The time of the making of the will
is said to have been either Just pre
ceding or Just following Col. Astor's
marriage to Madeleine Force at New
port last September. Mrs. Astor and
her stepson clung to the scant hope
thnt Col. Astor might have escaped
death In some way until even this
faint hope was dispelled by the an
nouncement on Wcdnesdny last of the
linding of Col. Astor's body. Then, It
wns stated, the trustees of the estate
met Vincent Astor at the Astor home
nnd went over with him the details of
the will In order that he might begin
tho task of familiarizing himself with
tlie estate of which he has become the
Mrs. Ava Willing Astor. Col. Astor's
first wife, is expected to arrive In New
York to-day with her daughter, Muriel
Astor. The reports current yesterday
varied as to the treatment accorded the
first wife in the new will. One report
was thnt the first Mrs. Astor was amply
provided for I nthe document and thnt
the widow also was a beneficiary in
spite of the reported marriage settle
ment In lieu of dower. Another said as
positively that although Mrs. Madeleine
Force Astor receives the Fifth avenue
house for her lifetime nnd that provi
sion Is made ns well for the upkeep of
this house, thus relieving her of that
burden, the first wife was not mentioned
in the will. All reports agree thnt Mu
riel Astor, Col. Astor's daughter by his
llrst wife, and any posthumous children
by his second wife are cared for under
The bulk of the estate. It is assumed
will go to William Vincent Astor, Col.
Astor's son, who Is not yet 21. Included
In Vlncrnt Astor's Inheritance, accord
ing to one source of Information, Is
four-fifths of the estate of William As
tor, Col. Astor's father, which came to
him through I ol. Astor by William As
tor's will. According to another Inform
ant. Col. Astor was not circumscribed
In disposing of the property byany pro
vision of his father's will, but he never
theless has provided that the hulk of
the William Astor estate shall be left
In the hands of Vincent Astor. The mar
riage settlement mnde by Col. Astor
upon his second wife. It was slated yes
terday, was at least $1,1)00,000,
A conservative estimate- of the estate
Is said to be $ir,0,000.nurt. ot this Stfi,
flOd.OOO represents the sum left to Col,
Astor by his mother, Mrs. William As
ter, This nmount Is said to have been
lnrgely Increased by Col. Astor through
his Investments. Altogether, It Is
thought thnt Col. Astor's personal prop,
erty alone totals about J30.000.000. se
curities of the Niagara Falls Power
Company and the I'nlted States Steel
Corporation nre said to figure largely In
this part of the estate. The Astor estate,
which enme Into Col, Astor's hnnds nt
the death of his father, may reach t"0,
000.000 at the present time.
It has been decided to postpone the
filing of the will, It was said yesterday,
until after the funeral. The body of
Col. Astor, which Is being brought to
Halifax by the Mackay-Hennett, will be
brought to llhlnebeck as soon as pos
sible. Alter the funeral at Rhlnebeck
the body will be brought to New York
for burial In Trinity Cemetery. It Is
thought possible that the funeral will
be held late In the present week nnd

How to Select Them
Buying a piano is either easy or difficult, according to the
way you set about it. Don't court disappointment by selecting
an instrument in a haphazard way. Remember there is a stand
ard of value in pianos, as in everything else.
Here at Aeolian Hall you have the opportunity of learning
definitely just how good any piano should be for its price. We
don't say "Come here and buy your piano" but we do say
" Don't buy before coming here."
Perfectly logical! For here is a great building with all but
one floor devoted exclusively to keyboard instruments in a
range of prices that excludes neither the pinched purse nor the
one that can buy the most expensive of all. Here there is not
merely one kind of piano but many, so that every taste in tonal
quality, construction and style can be pleased. Nor is this
simply a salesroom. On the contrary, we make every piano we
sell and guarantee it so that each is backed by the reputation
of the world's greatest music-house.
And all this holds good whether your purchase be the exquisite
hand-carved Weber Art Grand or the wonderful $250 Stroud.
Conic f Wc don't want you to buy so much wt we ivant you
to sec. Come it's only to tour the building for enjoyment.

If you nre familiar with motor truck coastruction
and are experienced in the operation of heavy duty
trucks, the Garford chassis will appeal to you at once.
The pressed steel frame (guaranteed for three years),
four speed transmission, straight line drive, extra
heavy jack shaft, housings, torsion rods and other
driving mechanism never fail to make good.
A thorough examination will prove to you, as it has

weak points apparent in the average truck have been
completely overcome in the distinctive construction of
tho Gorfordt .
