ALL TELL TAFT HE'LL WIN.' '
lla'ndreda of Optimistic Letters Corns
to the White Home.
Washinotox. Nov. 2. Hundred of
letters and telegrams addressed to Presi
dent Taft reached tho Whlto Houo yen-
tentny and to-day containing cheering
nows or views as to tho political situation
In various parts of the country. A dozen
or so of them which were mads public
to-(lay by Assistant Secretary Hrahany
are supposed to be representative of the
entire lot. All are optlmlstlo In tho ex
treme.
Ohio is more largely represented than
any other State. The manager of n thea
tre at Terraco Park, Ohio, warns tho
President to give no credence) to reports
that elthor Wilson or Roosevelt will carry
that State, becuuso ho has felt the pulse of
the people nttondlng his theatre and this
indicates that tho Taft temxiraturo Is so
promising that ho will carry the State by
a big majority.
Notwithstanding reports that the Pre,
idont would loso a certain part of the
Protestant Church voto n tologram states
that members of the mon's club of the First
Methodist Episcopal Church at Columbus
are strongly In favor of him. A secret
voto resulted as follows: Taft. 45; Roose
velt. 31; Wilson, 21; Debs. I; Challn, I.
New Mexico will voto for Taft m ro:urn
for his loyalty to that State In Its recent
struggle for Statehood, according to John
R. McFio of Santa Fe.
W. Higgins of Martinsville, Olds., a mem
iwr of tho O. A. R.. writes that Roosevelt
threatened to carry things by storm out
that way for a wlnlo, but recently there
lias boon an nctivo pulling away from
him in Kansas, Oklahoma and southeast
ern Missouri, the KopublicaDs returning
to Taft and the Democrats standing by
W ilson. Tnft is obtaining results, he says,
from tho business men, farmers and la
boring men. Ho says the old soldiers of
Oklahoma are for Tnft. that tho Demo
crats will meet their first Waterloo In that
State and that a friend of his in Kansas
says Roosevelt won't carry that Stale.

Mr. Dixon said:
Tho only States in ths doubtful list tint
Mr. Taft may carry are Utah and Wyoming,
with tho chances favoring Roosevelt In the
latter State.
In New York State It Is moat conserva
tive to assume that noose velt will receive
not less than 60 per rent, of the former
Jtepubllcan vote and not less than 13 per
rmt. of the Democratic vots based on the
estimate of t.aso.ooo.
Hootevelt will poll S3d,s:n
Wilson will poll ... 371,378
Taft will poll . . 3W.5?
If as a matter of fact ItooHovell should
poll Oi per rent, of the former Kepiibllinn
vote and 15 per cent, of tlis lie moiratlu
vote
Roosevelt will poll .... 870.438
Wilson will poll 571.378
Taft will poll . 3i,7l)
In New Jersey In the irreat IniliiHtriat
cities such as Newark, Jersey City. I'uter
son and Trenton the test voles show thit
Roosevelt will poll an enormous percentage
of the votes cast. I believe the Htate will
nlve him not less than 20,000 plurality.
Our host estimates Indicate that his
majority In Pennsylvania will be approxi
mately 135,000.
As regards Now York State, George M.
Palmer, Democratic State chairman, had
this to say in an exhortation to his leaders:
Jhe election of our entire national and
State tickets is certain.
I'nder existing conditions every As
sembly, Senate and Congressional dis
trict In the State Is Democratic or de
niable. We concede no district to our
opponents.
We will achieve the greatest victory in
the history of our party.
William Barnes, Jr., met this assertion
with this prophecy, based, as he said,
upon tho most careful canvasses in New
ork city and up the State:
The Roosevelt vote will be appreciable,
.hut will draw as Wilson will draw from
radical elements In the community, whereas
the conservative, sound and thoughtful
people of the Htate will support Taft and
Hedges. There will be polled In the neigh
borhood of 1,530,00(1 votes, which will be
divided between the three leading candi
dates, Whereas four yesrs ago it required
over 740,000 votes to secure a plurality,
this year something over 600,000 will hit
Mifllclent. Four yearH ago Mr. Taft received
70,(ioo votes, I put his vote this election
in the neighborhood of 050,000, which will
be ample to give him a plurality. The vote
for Mr Hedges will be substantially the
Mime an that for Mr. Taft, although It will
not come from exactly the same people.
Mr. Karnes says that "substantial Re
publican majorities" will sit in both
nouses of the legislature.
Francis W. Bird, ProRresslvo county
chairman, (?avo theso figures:
I'rogreBslves, 140,000; Democrats, 130,000;
Republicans, 50,000; Socialists, Independence
League, Ac. 30,000.
"Tho Progressives are sure of not less
than two-thirds of tho Republican Presi
dential voto and not less than one-third
of the Democratio vote, " he added.
Kamtiol H. Koenig, figuring totals from
a canvass which covers all but seven
Assembly districts, said;
Tho figures indicate exactly as the pre
liminary canvass Indicated, that the fight
In this State Is solely between Taft and
WiIkoti and between Hedges and tiulzer.
Neither Mr. Iloosevelt nor Mr. Straus has
any nance for election nor even for hecond
place in this State.

The final campaign parados, followed
by n joint mass meeting at Union Square
last night of the Socialist party were
smaller titan the leaders anticipated.
There were two parades, one starting
from the Labor Temple at Eighty-
fourth street nnd Second avenue ami
a down town parade starting from Rut
gers Square. '
The uptown parade began at 7:20.
The seven divisions were massed east
und west of Second avenue, and they
fell in line after the head of the column
pasKed with John A. Wall as grand mar
shal.
The route was so long that the down
town paraders had been waiting for an
hour or more at Union Square and the
mass meeting was well under way when
the uptown paraders appeared. There
were more women in the parade than
in other years.
There was little music played butT'the
"Marseillaise." Ked flags were displayed
in great numbers but they all bore the
arm and torch, the emblem of tho party,
or the name of u club or trade union. Most
of the paraders wore red sashes, With
the fifth division came a large number
of Finnish women, some of them carrying
children in their urins. Trunsoarencien
were plentiful, One of them read, "Kl
tor's only crime is loyalty to the eople."
At Eighteenth stris-t and Eighth avenue
a big nun who was drunk began at lacking
the paraders with his lists. Mont or tlw
men carried canen and they hit back.

Frederick Paiilitsch, Socialist candi
date for Congress in the Twenty-thiid
district, presided In Union Squire. Cliarles
E. Russell, Socialist candidate for (lov
ernor, declared that the Republican.
Democratio and Progressive parties ob
scured the issues.
"The Progressive party promises re
form," ho said, "but what we want is the
right of free speech and free assembly
and the right to live. At Little Falls and
other places people have leen charged
with offences with which they were not
connected in defending the right to frie
speech. Three men who led the strikers
in Lawrence, Mass., to victory are in
prison in danger or death lecause a girl
was shot. They defended free speech and
are charged with inciting to riot, the riot
Iteing not even remotely connected with
their speeches."
Mrs. Marie MacDonald, candidate of
the .Socialists for Congress in the Thir
teenth district: dustave A. Strebel. John
Spargo and others Bpoke. There were
two stands on the east and west side of
the plaza, from which sp-a-ches were also
made In English, German and Yiddish.
Rums detectives, working with dicta
graphs and stool pigeons, have run down
more than 3,000 cases of false registration
and have reported thorn to tho Honest
Ballot Association. The association is
non-partisan. It is backed by Frank A.
Munsey and Ooorge W. Perkins of the
Progressives, Julius Henry Cohen of tho
Empire State Democraoy, Edward R.
Finch, secretary of tho Republican Club,
John I). Rockefeller, Jr., R. Fulton Cut
ting, Ellhti Root. Jr., Ogden Mills Reld,
William Jay Schieffelin and Albert S.
Bard of tho Citizens Union.
From the reports which hava corns
to tho association from the deteotlves
and tho BOO watchers, some of them Co
lumbia students, who were at the regis
tration places two weeks ago the officers
of the association think that in some
parts of tho city as many as 2,500 fake
votes have been cast at recent elections.
Tho officers point to the great falling
off in registration in some of the mora
notorious districts. They figure that the
lapse is not because fewer legitimato
voters have come out for tho election
but because the watchers by their mere
presenco frightened off hundreds of
repeaters. Herbert Rodman, chairman
of the executive committee of the asso
ciation, thinks that illegal registration
has been cut in half by tho activity of the
watchers.
The colonizers and repeaters who bad
the temerity to register and were sotted
by the watchers have been subjected
to the set 'it iny of Burns men. The de
tectives found that fifty repeaters wero
brought here from Baltimore and dis
tributed through the West Side from
Thirty-fourth street to Fifty-ninth street.
Most of them were in the region around
Forty-ninth street and Tenth avenue.
They had to report to a man in Harlem
well known to the police as a flat thief,
lie was guide and took them to the regis
tration places, where they put their names
down as many times as they were told.
Dav after to-inorrow they will be ex
pected to vote at least five times apiece.
A watcher in one of the polling places
on Tenth avenue put his eye on an old
negro, who told everybody that he had
been a slave before Lincoln vet him fre.
The watcher challenged him. Down on
his knecH went the old man.
"Don't kill old George ylt," he said.
"Jos' let him live till after election."
The registration officers put his name
down and the Hums men have been
looking him up since. He will be looked
out tor on Tuesday.
Over on Kat Fourteenth street is a
man known as Rig Al. He hired forty
guerillas in rniiaaeipma ana Drotignt
them in New Yor!:. One hundred and
fifty such men are said by the detoctives
to Imj living temporarily in the vicinity
of East Twenty-third street, ready to
vote every little while on Tuesday.
It is not necessary, say the-officers of
' the Association, for a man to be put to
the inconvenience of hanging around
New York in the interval between regis
tration and election. Ho can go home
1 to Baltimore or Philadelphia and register
mere, ii ne is (turn enoup.li. ror need
tie ciime back on election day. When
he registers tho bos of the gang makes
him write down the name under which
he proioses to vote, and then when elec
tion comes another gangster copies the
signature luto the registration book,
making it look like the otie which the first
man put there.
The Hums detective agency sent out
a poster yesterday offering $500 reward
for information leading to the arrest and
conviction of anybody who tries to vote
illegally on Tuesday.
"I have evidence." says William J.
Burns in his offer., "of fraudulent regis
tration from the following houses: The
Kenwood, 29 Howery; .17 Cooper Square,
ISO Fifth street, I2il East Tenth street.
218 East Ninth street. Barney Flinn's

Front street, IS Hatavia street, 3 James
street, 1S7 Cherry street, 377 Water street,
3H Oliver street, 403 Pearl street and 140
Cherry street."
Burns's offer is in behalf of the Pro
gressive party.
The Voters League sent out yesterday
in printed form a list of over 500 names
under which registrations were made in
tho Second Assembly district, and, as
the league believes, illegally.
to the District Attorney office rortjr
eight cases but after witnesses were
heard only ten warrants were Issued.
Yesterday Assistant District Attorney
Medalie had before him the captains or
so von election districts In the Eighth
Assembly district, a district where eloc
tlon frauds in favor of the Progressive
party nave been' alleged, ine captains
wore from the First, Second, Third,
Fourth. Fifth. Fifteenth and Sixteenth
Election districts. Eaoh of them corrob
orated the narrative of Freidel, tno Re
publican district leader, and said that
they had received from tS to S2S each
from Freidel and had spent the money
for cigars and refreshments and in no
other way.
Chief Magistrate McAdoo and Magls
trzte Krotel were at 300 Mulberry street
most of the day yesterday to issue war
rants. They signed twenty-seven war
rants and seven summonses. Magistrate
Krotel will be at SOO Mulberry street
this morning at 0 o'clock and Mr. Medalie
will bring seventy witness before htm.

Alan Denounces Proa-resstve Party as
Partly Personal Oae.
Cambridge, Mass., Nov, 2. Ex-dov.
John D. Long of Massachusetts writing
on "'The Candidacy of President Taft"
In the election number of the Harvard
Illustrated Magazine denounces the Na
tional Progressive party as a "purely
personal party" owing Its existence
merely to the fact that Roosevelt was
disappointed in his quest for '.he regu
lar Republican nomination.
"There Is to my mind no reason for
Roosevelt's election," declares Mr. Long.
Assailing the Colonel's good faith, he
ays:
"Roosevelt has not given the square
deal to I'resldent Taft, whom he more
than any other man pressed Into the
Presidency, and Is now, without any
other cause than his own let us hope
unconscious spirit of self-aggrandisement
attacking and striving to sup
plant. He la the most masterful boas
In politics. Everything Is made sub
servient to his personal .dictation. Ilia
temperament unfits him, for the pru
dent direction of our Government."
Kx-Qov. Long cites Roosevelt's dis
regard uf personal rights In the
Brownsville affair nnd states :
"ills revolutionary theories of judi
cial recall and his attacks on our repre
sentative system of representative gov
ernment are destructive of our con
stitutional safeguards. To impair this
system Is a step not toward reform
but toward revolution and chaos- Mr.
Roosevelt may by the split, he has
caused, defeat Mr. Taft, but that is ths
only possible result of his crusade for
himself. In the meanwhile let us elect
Mr. Taft."
MAGISTRATES ARE ON DUTY.
Mr.
Medalie nf Whitman's Office
After Kleetlon Frauds.
More than usual activity is being dis
played this year, according to the figures
of the District Attorney's office, by elec
tion officials and those interested in hav
ing tho Presidential voting done squarely
in taking precautions to reduce tho illegal
vote on Tuesday to a minimum. Assist
ant District Attorney Medalie has per
sonally investigated more than 100 com
plaints. He was busy at it all yesterday
afternoon nnd will keep on to-day and
Monday.
A large number of warrants have been
already Issued by Chief Magistrate
McAdoo and several bench warrants have
come from the Goneral Sessions Judges
for men indicted by the Grand Jury.
These warrants were placed in the hands
of the detectives assigned to the District
Attorney's office for service. The war
rants issued by the Chief Magistrate
will be held at the polls and served when
those for whom the warrants are out have
uppcared at the voting places. It is not
expected tliat a large number of these
warrants will bo sorved, for word gets
around that certain iersons may be ar
rested and they frequently fall to appear
at voting time.
Assistant District Attorney Medalie
yostcrday communicated with Deputy
Pollco Commissioner McKay as to the
formalities of sorving these warrants.
Tho order road out on election day to the
policemen in thoir precinct stations is
usually drawn up by tho District Attor
ney's office. Tho order this year is the
samo as those for previous elections
with one exception. Formerly, Mr.
Medalie said, persons whose names were
on warrants were arrested when triey
came to the trailing places and were not
allowed to vote. This year they are to
be given an opportunity to cast their
ballots if tho election officials see fit to
allow them. This procedure is followed
on the theory that it is in the province
nf tho election officials to determine
whethor or not a man may vote, and not
tho duty nf the pollco authorities.
A great many complaints this year
havo coroo from citiaens' committees
and clvio bodies. Mr. Medalie Dointed
out that a good many of tlm comphtiuts
turned in appeareq to nao Deen caused
by misunderstandings and lack of proper
explanation by election officials. In one
police precinct the patrolmen brought
WILSON PARADE MONDAY NIGHT.
It Will Be of the Old Faihloaed Klad
With Torchlights aad Rockets.
Tho Democrats will have a parade after
all. It will be of the old fashioned kind
torchlights, floats, Irambe, skyrockets and
nil the other things that youngsters of the
00s remember and supposed bad con
out of date. The parade will be the last
bit of aotivity that the Wilson men will
bo put to before the business of voting
actually begins.
A conference of delegates from Wilson
cIuIm was called late yesterday at the
headquarters of the Wilson College Men s
League in the Hotel Imperial. Fifty
organizations were represented and it
was decided on the spot to have a parade
to-morrow night which would put the one
that they didn't have ou Saturday quite
in the shade.
"Thero will bo miles upon miles of
marching men," says the prospectus,
"and lantastic floats, seas of undulating
flags, flaming flambeaux, flaring torches,
fanciful flights of skyrockets, booming
bombs and the blare of brass furnished
bv exactly thirtv-flvo big bands."
The circus stuff isn't all in tho pros
pectus, for tho floats are promised to be
magical marvels, and so on.
The parade will form on Washington
Square and the oross streets just north
of it and will co up ifth avenue to Broad'
way and on to Times Square. The first
division is instructed to be on hand at
Washington Square at 0:45 to-morrow
night, and the parade will start north at
7:30 o'olock. In this division will be men
from the college men's league, alt the 1,000
Wilson watchers at the polls the next
morning ana tne spenoinaers. John u
DeSuullee and Joseph It. Truesdalo are in
charge or the parade.
MOOSETTE PARADE TO-MORROW.
Postponed Saturday as a Tribute to
Vire-Prrsldent Sherman.
The Bull Moosette automobile parade.
scheduled for yesterday afternoon was
postponed until to-morrow afternoon
as a tribute of respect to the memory
of Vloo-Presldent Sherman, but Mary
Donnelly decided that although she must
go with banners furled, she really ought
to carry her message to Seward Park.
So she whirled down there in Mrs. Amos
Plnchot'scar with no insignia but a quart
of T. R. buttons in a blaok satchel and
found a good audlenco of more than 300
men and boys listening to Socialist ora
tory.
As soon as Miss Donnellv annnarwl
sho was greeted with cheers, and then
with- ono voice the crowd demanded
buttons and a score of enthusiasts
swarmed over the sides of tho car.
Tho Socialists politely turned over the
meeting to tho newcomers and Mlsa
Donnelly spent ten minutes explaining
to them why they should vote tne Pro
gressive tloaat.
