Mr. I'latt has been i.cnomlnalcd
by the Republicans to oppose Senator
1'lttman. Two year." ago the Socialist
vote In Nevada for Senator was more
than f,,fi00, while the candidates of the
two old parties polled a little over 8,100
each. The Socialists have lenoiulnated tnr
candidate who made the race two years
ago and there Is n countrywide Interest
among the Socialists In his election. The
Socialists are concentrating their efforts
on the Senatorial fight In Nevada In the
hope of having nt least one representa

The. .Missouri contest between Senator
Herd, Democrat, und Waller Dickey,
nominee of the Republicans, has
been described as a "horse race." Dickey

The Republicans arc very confident of
carrying MIssouM this ear for the na
tional ticket. While most of the predic
tions concede Missouri to the Demo
crats and assume that Senator Reed will
be reelected there Is an element of doubt
In the situation that makes It worth

say New Jersey has never had a dupli
cate of Republican activities In effective
ness and enthusiasm In nny national or
State campaign nnd they are convinced
that l'rcsldent Wilson hasn't the shadow
of a chance to win at home.
One thing that has caused the Demo
crats extreme alarm Is the fact that the
Republican Progressives of New Jersey,
who elected Wood row Wilson Governor
In 1910. arc back In the Republican
camp, with the possible exception of 6, or
at the most 10 per cent. As New Jersey
is normally a Republican State, It be
comes then a iiuestlon of mathematics,
the solution of which hasn't given the
Democrats much comfort. Mr. Wilson
had .",.1,000 votes under the combined
vote for Roosevelt and Mix Taft In lull.
Joseph S. Frellnghuysen, candidate
for Fnltid Stales Senator, and Walter K.
Kdge, candidate for tlovernor, have
made what they call "a combined drive"
from one end of the State to the other.
They have done their talking an a rule

newspapers condemned the fraud and
called for a riratnl Jury Investigation.
F.Verybody who knows Mr, F.dgc knew
the slander was of the basest kind and

"The Democratic campaign In New
Jersey Is In a state of collapse," Mr.
Kdue said yesterday. "Tho reason Is
clear. In the ahsencu of real campaign

Mr. Frellnghujsen box made the tariff
the princlpi! tlp-mc of his campaigning
