The Two Leading Parties Claim
New York State For Their
REPUBLICANS WILL CARRY IOWA.
Both Sides Are Claiming That They
Will Be Successful in the
Contest In West Virginia Is Thought
to Be Clo6e and Both Parties Are
Claiming the State Republic
ans Claim Legislature.
New York, Nov. 8. The democrats
arc pinning their faith "to a statement
toy Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tam
many Hall, that the vote for Parker
1n Greater New York would be the
greatest ever cast for a democratic
candidate, while the republican view
was expressed by Gov. Odell, who said
Parker's plurality In the city would
have to be better than 140,000 If he
was to carry the state. Two years
ago Coler, the democratic candidate
for governor, had 122,600 plurality
over Odell in the city, but was defeat
ed, .Odell having 130,800 plurality In
the rest of the state.
D. Cady Herrlck, the democratic
nominee for governor, made a state
ment in which he said: "Making very
liberal discount upon the rosy views
that are always presented to a candi
date, I firmly believe that the repub
lican majority north of the Bronx will
be much less than It was two years
ago." - ' '
Frank W. HIggins, republican can
didate for governor, said: "I believe
Roosevelt will carry this state by over
100,000 and that the republican state
ticket will be elected."
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 8. The re
publican leaders In the state refuse to
chango their predictions that Roose
velt and Fairbanks will carry Indiana
by pluralities variously estimated at
from 20,000 to 35,000.
Democratic leaders confidently as
sert their belief that Parker and Da
vis will be successful in Indiana, but
refuse to make known the figures up
on which they found their belief.
The democrats are also of the opin
ion that John W. Kern, their guberna
torial candidate will run ahead of the
national ticket, and that there will be
conslderaole change In the complexion
of Indiana's representation In con
gress, Cincinnati, Nov. 8. The republicans
are confident that their organization
in Ohio will secure unusual results,
even exceeding pluralities' in what are
called "the McKinley years." While
the democrats have no such organiza
tion as their opponents, they claim
that there has been during the past
two or three days "a whirlwind in
their favor" that justifies their antici
pation of a landslide that might make
the state close and enable the demo
crats to gain three or four Ohio con
gressmen. They state that their vote
has not been out fully for years.
Parkersburg, W. Va., Nov. 8. The
.chances are that the electoral vote of
the state will go to Roosevelt and that
the democratic state ticket will be
elected. Republicans claim all five
congressman and the legislature,
while democrats say they will elect
three of the five congressmen and will
control the legislature on joint ballot,
insuring a democratic senator to suc
ceed Senator Scott.
Des Jtfolnes, la., Nov. 8. Chairman
R. H. Spence, of the republican state
committee, says that the republican
ticket will have a plurality of at least
125,000 Instead of 115,000, as has been
estimated. The democrats still' insist
that the plurality will not bo more
Boise, Ida., Nov. 8. Republican
managers claim a plurality of 15,000
for Roosevelt. The democrats, while
conceding the claim of a Roosevelt
victory, put the plurality at a much
Trenton, N. J., Nov. 8. The repub
licans, so far as, the presidency Is con
cerned, entered the campaign Just
closed with the prestige of a plurality
of 56,899 for McKInloy four years ago.
They are confident of carrying the
state for Roosevelt by from 35,000 to
40,000. The democrats aro claiming
that Parker will have a small plural
ity. Milwaukee, Nov. 8. It is generally
conceded that the Roosevelt and Fair
banks electors will carry the state by
a plurality ranging between 50,000
Chicago, Tfov, 8. The republicans
claim that thoy will carry Illinois by
anywhere from 125,000 to 140,000, and
the democrats claim that they will re
duce the republican plurality of four
years ago. , '
The fight on congressmen will not,
In all probability, result in any great
change In the number of representa
tives from both parties. The present
congressional delegation is eight dem
ocrats and 17 republicans, and the
chances are that this ratio will not be

Springfield, 111., Nov. 8. In an order
issued Monday afternoon Mack Tay
lor, president of- the Hoisting Engi
neers' Union of Illinois, declares the
stride of the holsting'englneers off, In
obedience to a referendum vote which
resulted 750 to 315 In favor of return
ing to work.
The question of Joining the United
Mine Workers of America will be sub
mitted to a referendum vote, but there
is little doubt that the engineers will
decide to join the larger organization.
The engineers return to work at a
scale of 5V. per cent, less than what
they received last year. None of them
will be discriminated against by the
operators because of having struck.
Mines will probably re-open on Wed

Winter Session of That Body
Opened Monday and the
Message Was Read.
NEARLY ALL THE SEATS FILLED.
President Palma Reports Progress in
Faying Off the Debt of S28.500-
000 Due the Veterans.
Attention Is Called to Piatt Amend
ment Which Prohibits Cuba's In
curring Debt Unless Treasury
Receipts Are Sufficient.
Havana, Nov. 8. The winter ses
sion of congress opened Monday prom
isingly. In sharp contrast to the rows
and disinclination to legislate which
characterized the summer session, the
members of the minority party occu
pied their seats in full force. Nation
alist leaders have Informed a press
representative that It Is not their in
tention to pursue their former obstruc
tive tactics. There were less than
half a dozen absentees in each house,
and the proceedings were character
ized by friendliness.
In his message President Palma,
after a lengthy review of the condition
of the republic, outlined leading mat
ters requiring action by congress.
The message made no reference to
the political situation. In mentioning
the progress thaT' has been made In
paying off the 50 per cent, of what Is
duo the veterans, the total amounting
to $28,500,000, President Palma asked
congress to decide In what manner
the remaining half should be. raised
or to suggest other mode of settle
ment. The president called attention
to the fact that the Piatt amendment
would not permit Cuba to Incur debt
unless the ordinary receipts of the
treasury were sufficient to pay off the
sinking fund and Interest, adding that
as the present sources above the ordi
nary expenses are practically absorb
ed by the first loan, Cuba can not cre
ate a new loan except through Increas
ing taxes. He suggested that the dif
ficulty might be obviated by the crea
tion of a perpetual debt bearing In
terest at 3 per cent, per annum, which
the government could be authorized
to sink after 25 years or to liquidate
sooner If the means became availa
ble. President Palma called attention to
Cuba's responsibility under the Piatt
amendment for proper sanitation
throughout the Island and stated that
the executive department must as
sume general charge of all sanitation
In .order to secure uniform and effec
tive results. Consequently congress
should appropriate sufficient money
for that purpose and authorize definite
executive control thereof. The presi
dent reported that health conditions
were as satisfactory as last year, with
the exception that there had been a
number of cases of diphtheria In cer
tain localities In the province of San
tiago, which disappeared as the result
of speolal sanitary measures. The
mortality the past ten months In Ha
vana district was 21.20 per thousand
and throughout the Island 16.37. The

posed of and that bad not originated
