United States Senator George L".
"Wellington's Forecast of
BRYAN HAS GROWN STRONGER.
Distinjrnipned Maryland Repub
lican Leader Relieves New
Yorlc. Ohio and Indiana
Will Go Democratic.
BY EEXATOR GEORGE T WEIA.IXO-
Washington, Oct. 1C It is my honeBt
opinion that Mr. Bryan will bo elected
1'rrsldent. Without itoinff deeply Into tho
reasons for this conviction, I shall set down
hero a tv points nr-on which the conclu
sion is based.
In tho first place, I bclievo that every
Stato Ff.uth of Maron and Dixon's line will
he for Mr. Bryan. Kentucky, which pavo
Sir. llclllnley It electoral vote last time,
will unquestionably be for the D.-mocratle
candidate, and Marylard and Dslawarp will
be carried for hira. West Virsln'a will 1m
thn only Stato south of tho line about
which there will bo any doubt, and, as
matters look now. It will be found In the
Democrat!? column. New York will also be
found on Mr. Bryan's filde. I think Greater
Netv York will give a larger Dcmocratlo
majority than has been known In Its his
tory and that In the rural districts the Re
publican majorities are froing to be de
creased and the Democratic majorities In
creased. Tn the West Mr. Bryan will carry e-ery
State ho carried before except Washington,
which, I understand, will be acalnrt blra.
There Is a hard ?.&ht !3 South Dakota, tut
I think It will be won to us.
Indiana will. In my Judgment, bo Demo
cratic tills time. It Is aIwaj-3 a close State,
and was unquestionably held In the Repub
lican line last time by the most strenuous
efforts and by the great exertions of ex
President Han-iron ajid his friends and
the addition of large sums of money. At
this time Mr. Harrleon Is not In accord
with the Republican principles as an
nounced In the platform and there Is a
great change of sentiment In tho matter of
Imperialism there. Tho same conditions
exist In Michigan, which, to my mind, will
be Democratic. There the Hollanders aro
flockina- to Bryan's banner on account of
tho administration's Imperialistic policy
and Its evident understanding with Great
Britain to the detriment of the Boer cause.
What I know of Ohk leads me to
believe that Mr. McKinley will loso his own
State. The battle In Illinois will be very
hotly contested, with the chances at this
tltno In favor of Mr. Bran.
Prdlctton3 have been made that the al
leged a"saults on Governor Roosevelt will
result In harm to tho Dcmocratlo ticket. I
cannot 83e how such prophecies can be
made Ferlsusly. Tho Chicago attacking party
consisted of two newsboys one the age of
10 and the other of 12. I urn not at all
surprised that the Rough Rider was not In
fear and trembling from that onslaught. The
affair at Victor was brought about by the
rough and tough characters of Governor
Roosevelt's own followers. It Is a well
known fact that In tho West they have hired
anybody and everbody that could bo got at
fo much n head to take upon themFelves the
characters of Rough Riders. Nowhere has
the difference between the moJest and
feaceful Roo3evolt and I speak of Governor
Roosevelt as tho representative of the Re
publican organization and Mr. Bryan been
shown moro strlklnglv than at the disturb
ance at Ann Arbor. Mich., brought about by
the students of the university there. Mr.
Bryan did not los his temper cor hurl
Insulting epithets, but was mild and con
ciliatory, and by his policy wen orr tho
crowd: and when he received information
that several cf the young men had be"ii
arrested he telegraphed, making a personal
req-jest for their dlreharg".
Governor Roosevelt has ben losing votes
for his party, while Mr. Bryan has been
unquestionably strengthening his Unttt
GOVERNOR SAYERS'S ESTIMATE.
Savs Galveston Hurricane De
stroyed Twelve Thousand Lives.
New Tork. Oct. IS. Governor Joseph D.
Bayers of Texas, who Is here attending
the bazaar for the benefit of the Galveston
eufferera, says that the horror of Galveston
baa been In no way overestimated. Tho
mort conservative now put the loss of life
at 6.000. and tbe estimates run ell the way
frcm this minimum to a maximum of 12.C03;
In response to an Inquiry as to whether.
In his opinion, tho new Galveston could bo
made safe from the danser of a future
storm. Governor Bayers mid:
"I think that much can bo done looking
to the safety of the new city, but I do not
believe that there will be a repetition of
the frightful hurricane that vllted us. If
a storm of Auch awful proportions should
etrike tills city it would utterly wreck It.
You do not appreciate here the tremendous
ftrergth of the elements ns It was shown
at Galveston. No safeguard of human con
struction could Lave withstood It. Cut such
a storm Is not likely to come again. We
have little fear of that,"
