Postmaster General Says Parker
and Davis Cannot Win
From The Journal Bureau, Colorado Build
Washington, July 12.Postmaster
General Payne, whose long connection
with the. management of presidential
campaigns gives his opinion weight,
predicts that he democratio ticket
will be defeated. Discussing he out
look, Mr. Payne said:
"I do not see how It is possible for
the democratic ticket to be elected.
Mr. Davis was undoubtedly nominated
for the purpose of carrying West-"Vir-
ginia and Maryland for the demo
crats. It was a clever move on he
part of the party managers, but I be
lieve West "Virginia is solidly repub
"Since the ticket was nominated, I
have done some figuring on the elec
toral vote. It requires 289. votes'to
elect a president and vice president.
Exactly this number of votes can be
safely counted for he republican
party. Of the remaining 238 electoral
votes, seventy-eight must be placed in
the doubtful column. Of the doubtful
votes, the republican party will secure
at least one-half, and while I do not
wi sh to appear too enthusiastic, I do
not belie ve It possible for he Parker
and Davis ticket to win.
"In my calculations I have given
New Tork, Maryland and New Jersey
to the democrats. Of course we do not
concede New York to the democrats,
but my figures show that Roosevelt
can be elected without he Empire
state. New Jersey will certainly be
found in he republican column when
he votes are cast, and while I have
placed West Virginia in the doubtful
column, it Is safely republican. Con
necticut will also.be carried by he e
publicans, and the same is true of
Colorado, Idaho and Utah.
"I am not familiar with he record
of Senator Davis and he has not been
in public life ,for some years, but I
have no doubt that his record will fur
nish considerable material for the re
publican stump speakers."
