ILLINOIS IS REPUBLICAN.
CHICAGO, October 31. The cam

until tho voting is finished. While it
is generally conceded that the state is
safe for tho republican national ticket,
them is a keen fight- oyer tho governor

Although the lea'dcrs of both parties

ROCHESTER, N. Y., October 31.
After a veck's campaigning in New
York city and state, which ended here
tonight with duplicate rousing demon
strations, William H. Taft, the "repub
lican presidential candidate, made this
statement, to tho Associated Press:
"The state of New York is the most
republican of tho United States, even
moro republican than Pennsylvania.
"There is every indication through
tho part of the state above the Bronx
that thero will bo a majority for the re
publican ticket nearly equal to that of
Roosevelt four years ago.
"Tho democratic "majority inthe city
of New York will probably not ex

I the republican vote above tho Bronx

speeches ho has made today. Judgo
Taft had cordial receptions in. Elmira,

whero he will spend Sunday with Mr.
"Bryan has always won in August
and September," said Judge Taft in a
speech today. "This grows out of
the character of policies he advocate.
They aro always plausible, they are al
ways useful for tho first two months on
the stump, and the power of tho logical
analysis tho American voters bring to
bear upon them in tho long educational
campaign that precedes the presiden

BEEF TRUST PLANS
SCHEME IS TO AVOID FEDERAL
AND STATE PROSECUTION ' '
Financiers Discredit Story, Pointing' to
Efforts Made Along Similar ' Lines
Without' Avail for Ownership, of
NEW YORK, October 31. Going the
rounds in financial circles here is a re
port that the big packing interests,
which make up tho socalled Beef trust,
are planning to form a "holding com
pany" under a foreign charter. The
supposed object of this move is to
avoid prosecution, under both federal
and state anti-trust laws, for conspiracy
jn restraint of trade. ,
Tho conviction of tho manager of
the Western Meat company, in Califor
nia, under that states anti-trust
statute, is thought to bo the cause of
tho packers' uneasiness. Nearly all
other states have anti-trust laws similar
to that of California, so that there may
bo a widespread movement against the
trust and its various subsidiaries. .
It is unlikely that tho packers will
hold to the plan of seeking a charter
abroad, if they have formed such a
plan, because the weight of legal opin
ion is to tho effect that it would not
bring about the desired immunity. It
is said that somo such scheme was ad
vanced for tho joint control of the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
railroads scvoral years ago, but that
tho .companies' counsel decided that a
foreign company would stand no better
chanco thau a domestic one. It was
thcreforo determined to incorporate the
'Northern ' Securities company in this
country. This combination was 'finally
declared illegal and was dissolved. -
Tho Western Meat company, tho man
ager of wluch was convicted in Cali
fornia, is understood to. bo controlled
by trust interests, as is tho National
Packing company in thcjcast, Tho Na
tional Packing company has upon its
board of directors J. Ogden Armour, L.
F. Swift, Ira N. Morris, and others as
sociated with theni in the meat-packing
industry. This company, it is'said, is
