Forthcoming Trip West, and Taft's
Plight, Expected to Result in
Out of twenty-nine States whose
' Mntlment has been tested by the
Presidential Doll which the New
York Herald la now taking, Presl
deqt Taft leads In Just one, Utah.
The Mormon Church Is, down to
' this time, apparently supporting the
President. It may switch In a single
day, and carry with It the electoral
rote of the Bute, as tit did in 1900.
The church allowed Utah to go for
Bryan In 1896, but flopped In 1900,
as the result of a deal mado In the
laat days of the campaign with the
McKInley managors. The church al.
ways decides how Utah will go, and
the church dearly loves to land with
' the winners.
Wilson's Margin Is Small.
Today t t for Taft. If it leaves him, J
, It may decide either to go to Wilson or
to Roosevelt, depending on what the
chances are, aa between them, at the
' time when the laat move Is decided. At
any rate. a matters now stand, Utah

Taft and a goose-eggVahowlng In the

large proportion of these eighteen

velt la so close that when It Is consid
ered in connecUon with thewell-known
hostility of the Herald- for the Frogres
, rive candidate, It la apparent that Taft
f la utterly out of the running, and the
fight between Roosevelt and Wilson Is
really very close.
Roosevelt shows powerfully In Illi
nois, and It must be borno In mind that
this year Illinois Is the bell-wether
Progressive State. As Sam Blytho says,
It was the Illinois primary vote that
put Roosevelt on the Progressive map
this year. He swept that State- In the
primary by IEO.000. and thereafter Pcnn
aylvanfa. v Massachusetts. Maryland
California and the rest of tho primary
States fell In line behind It. Thoreforo
It Is Interesting to observe that In the
present Doll. Illinois haa cast PRAC
TICALLY AS MANY VOTES FOR
ROOSEVELT AS FOR TAFT AND
Maryland Turns To Progressives.
The figures are:
Total vote cast in poll 4,872
For Roosevelt 2.17C
For Wilson 1.33
For Taft 181
Bo much for a typical indeed, this
year, THE typical InsUrgont State. On
the other side there Is tight little Con
nectlcut It turns In a report on 29
votes, of which Roosevelt had 197. Wil
son 197, and Taft 119. Thus, two weeks
In succession, Roosevelt has landed

astonishment of the Herald's corre
spondents and of all the conservative
A week ago Roosevelt was given the
lead In Pennsylvania, with Wilson sec
ond. This week It Is all shaken up,
and the noil to date shows 1,019 for
Wilson, 946 for Taft, and 893 for Roose
velt. This really shows, just as the
very close figures of last week did,
that Pennsylvania Is so closo that Its
final decision will depend on the gen
eral drift of affairs between now and
Marvland reports 920 votes for Wll
jon. 766 for Roosevelt, and 3B for Tatt.
This Is Indicative of a strong tendency
toward the Progressive cause; and It is
Justified by the worries sustained by
the Democratic leaders In Marvland In
the last fortnight. There have been per
sistent reports that the Clark people
the ancient machine In Maryland, and
especially In Baltlmoro, were looking
for a chance to knife Wilson. They
don't want to knife him in the interest

TO AID SCIENCE

Value of Autopsies to
ACTION IS TAKEN
. WITHOUT DISSENT
Campaign of Education to Be
Waged to Show Advantage of
Practice to Humanity.
NEW YORK. Oct . Two hundred
prominent physicians of Brooklyn
and Long Island voluntarily pledged
their bodies, to the dissecting table at
a meeting held yesterday afternoon
on Hoffman Island by the Associ
ated Physicians of Long Island.
The Idea primarily Is to educate
the publlo and, make the people un
derstand that autopsies are in the
Interest of medical and surgical
aclence; thai they .will reveal physio
logical and pathological conditions
which at the present time may be
strange to tho medical world and
laat, but not least, the autopsies pro
posed may result In the finding of aa
effectual oure of the many Ills which
Seek To Educate Public.
In taking the action they did yester
day Die assembled physicians aparentl
wish to dissipate the morbid Impression
which the general public has In regard
to autopsies. Tho question was dis
cussed some time ago at p, meeting of
the society, and was referred to a spe

A. Browning was appointed, the chair
man. "" fr-i7 --
This report waa-submitted at4Uh
meeting yesterday, ,, A long discussion!
followed. Tne sentiment waa unanimous
that It was the duty of the physicians
to educate the public that autopsies,
especially In cases where the cause of
death was a' mystery to medical science,
would be of an Immense advantage to
Medical and surgical science. It was
urged, would receive many benefits from
these autopsies. It wa pointed out that
the scientific knowledge which the med
ical world haa gained In the last two
decades haa been through the medium of
autopsies. In the Interest of the living
the argument Was mado. People should
put personal sentiment aside If an au
topsy would bo ot value to medical and

'The physicians are anxious that this
practice of autopsies should become

surgeons. "We are endeavoring to edu

KILLING OF ZfflG
WILL NOT AFFECT
FATE OF BECKER
District Attorney Whitman Declares He
Has Complete Confession of Gangster
Shot Down on Car.
NEW YORK, Oct. 6. Tho sensational murder ot "Big Jack" Zellg;
on a street car will have no weakening effect on tho Rosenthal case.
Tbla wai the statement made by District Attorney Whitman today after
"Red Phil" Davidson, Zollg's slayer, had been bound over by the coroner
for a hearing tomorrow.
Although it has been surmised that the killing ot the big gangster
was done to get out ot the way an Important witness In the Becker trial,
yet even If this was the motive Its object will have failed,
WHITMAN HAS COMPLETE CONFESSION.
"I have the complete confession of
Zellg," said Mr. Whitman, "and. In no
way will this shooting Interfere with
the progress of Becker's trial for the
killing of Rosenthal."
Davidson waa taken from the East
Twenty-seventh street station before
the coroner about midday, and repeated
the story that tho shooting had been
actuated by a desire for personal ven
geance after Zellg had robbed him ot
Davidson, who Is a big man with a
heavy art face, did not appear greatly
disturbed when he stood before the
coroner. H1b Insistence on his story as
originally told give the Impression that
he had learned It all by heart before
hand. The coroner Issued subpoenaes for Paul
Schmidt, the policeman who mode thu
arrest; David Meyer, a brother-in-law
of the murderer; Mrs. Davidson, Her
man Melberth. and the conductor and
motorman of the car In which the kill
ing took place.
It was not until Davidson had been
sent to the Tombs that Mr. Whitman
and his assistant, Mr. Mlpton, went
home. They-worked steadily on'the cuso
since tho shooting took place at 9
o'clock last night until 5 this morning.
Gun of Police Type.
Meanwhile It had been ascertained
that tho gun with which Zellg waa shot
was of the same typo as that carried
b the police ot this city. The murder
er declared that when Zellg had refused
to restore him his money, he took his
last 110 and went over to New Jersey
to buy a revolver, as he could not buy
one In ihls city under the present law.
This part of his story coupled with the
typo of revolver which he obtained,
aroused tho Interest of Deputy Com
mlssloner of Police Dou herty,, who
started out today to Investigate David
When commissioner Dougherty re
turned early In tne afternoon he said
he had located the pawnshop In Jersey
City where Davidson bought the
revolver. He also has the name of the
policeman who owned the gun. He Is
now stationed in urooKiyn.
The inquest on the body of the gamb
ler waa held by Coroner's Physician
O'Hanlon, who removed the bullet and
corroborated the Information given out
at the time of the shootlnr that the
nlstol was held close to the gangster's
head and that evidently he had not a
chance for his life.
For his quick action In capturing Dav
idson. Schmidt will probably be pro
moted to the detective force.
On Trolley Car.
Zellg, leader of a gang that bore his
name, a noted gun fighter, the man
suspected of having supplied the slay
era of Herman Rosenthal at the behest
of Lieut. Charles Becker, and himself
the accuser of two of Becker's old
Strong Arm Bquad, who, he said, had
"planted' a revolver In his pocket, was
bhot and killed last night. The shoot
ing occurred In an open Second avenud
trolley car, and Zellg died on the way
to Bellevue Hospital tn an ambulance.
DavldBon, a Russian fruit dealer, who
shot Zollg, held a policeman at bay with
his reolver for a time, and surrend
ered anl when tho offlcr drew his own
levolver. He made no resistance when
ho waa led to police headquarters.
Davidson and two policemen who had
figured In his capture were put In the
record room at headquarters and kept
there practically prisoners under guard
of two dther policemen and Lieutenant
Fogarty. This was done so that thfcy
might be questioned by no noe unfit
uniriLi Attorney wmiman arrivea
was sent to him as soon as the
capture waa made, and Second Deputy
l'once commissioner aeorge B. Dough
erty and Inspector Kaurot wore also
summoned to headquarters.
Called By Phone.
It was learned later that Zellg .actual
ly had been In his customary haunt, the
cafe at 76 Second avenue, and that, like
Rosenthal, he had received a message
which took him outside, ellg's message
also came by telephone, and as he left
the restaurant he said he was going to
meet some one at Fourteenth street and
He Jumped on a car to ride there, and
a few moments later news of his death
was brought Into the cafe by persons
who knew the gunman.
The news that Zellg had been "put
out" spread through the Second avenife
