GIANTS FIGHT DESPERATELY AND WIN
STRAW VOTE SHOWS
WILSON AND T. R.
I BY GILKON GARDNER.
- WASHINGTON, D. 0., Oct. 14.
That Roosevelt Is at present
Baediiig both of the other can
ididntes in Indiana and Pennsyl
vania and that he is running he
liiiiil both Wilson and Tuft in
New York state, is the showing
of 11 postal card straw vote mode
by your correspondent. *
The figures are:
Indiana —Roosevelt, 106; Wil
son, 74; Taft, 35; Debts, 25;
Chafin, 4; Reiner (Socialist-La
Wilson, 54; Taft, 51; Debts, 21;
NEW YORK— 91;
Taft, 64; Roosevelt, 48; Debs,
12; Chafin, 8; undecided, 2. ,
It is not claimed that this poll
is conclusive nor that it is at all
complete as to the states. It Is
simply a straw in the wind, ac
curate so far as it affects the
lacalitles where the poll was
These three states were chosen
because they are regarded as piv
otal. Whatever happens in the
other parts of the country, the
hi6tory-making vote will be that
cast in the three states.
It looks now as if Roosevelt
would have a "Solid West," to
match Woodrow Wilson's "Solid
South," and that the battle will
turn on what happens in the
states of the Middle West and
the East. These are sample
states in these sections.
It is significant that in both In
diana and Pennsylvania Taft is
running a rather poor third. This
bears out other polls and corrob
orates the statements made by
Hiram Johnson and Senator Dixon
that throughout the West at least
Taft is a negligible quantity, and
it would Indicate that in parts of
the East he is equally negligible.

chocolates which ho had picked

the victim of enemies who have
been hounding the father for a

upon which the police detectives
•re working today.
Chemical examination of the
itomachs of two geese which
dropped dead in the yard at the
tame time as the death of the
child. will be complete late this
afternoon, and City Chemist C. S.
Wilson stated this morning that,
although he was not positive at
that time, every Indication pointed
to strychnine poisoning as. the
cause of death.
In support of their theory, the
police discovered today that three
years ago the home in which the
Dinsky family lived was fired by
Captain John Fitzgerald of the
detectives would give out no In
formation today, the workings of
his men being kept a secret. . V
Owing to the fact that the
frantic mother destroyed the box
of candy when the child first be
came ill, the city chemist's office
has been somewhat hampered in
determining (.he character of the
poison. ! The two dead geese and
a dog which died Saturday after
noon afford the only means of
solving the mystery as the parents
of the dead babe have forbidden
the coroner holding an autopsy,
and a/c grieving over their child's
body,. which they refuse to < allow

though in New York he still has
some strength. He Is second man
there, and Roosevelt third.
Wilson leads in New York. .
It is equally significant that
Wilson has a long lead on Taft in
New York state. It should be re
membered, however, that no cam
paign has as yet been made in
New York state. The state tick
ets have only just been nominat
ed, and all the conditions of the
poll were as unfavorable as pos
sible for Roosevelt. After he has
campaigned the East, and particu
larly in New York, and after the
democratic nominations have been
looked over by the voters and the
latter have had a chance to take
stock, the results may he very
much changed. This poll also
leaves out of account Greater
New York, which always is a
large factor in national election-*
but generally on the side of the
Must Carry New York
Unless Rooaevelt can break the
Solid South, it is necessary for
him to carry New York in order
to have enough votes to win.
Even should he carry Pennsyl
vania and Indiana, with the oth
er states of similar political com
plexion, should he lose New York,
he would lack the votes necessary
to win. Probably as never before,
therefore, New York is the pivot
al state on which this election
Another interesting feature of
this poll is the strong showing of
Debs, the socialist candidate. In
Indiana, Debs polls 25 to Taft's
35. In Pennsylvania, he has 21
to Taft's 61; nnd in New York,
12 to Roosevelt's 48. This would
seem to indicate that the socialist
vote will not be materially af
fected by Roosevelt's candidacy,
but that Roosevelt will draw his
strength from the two old parties

found by the child lying close up
against the fence near the back
gate. It was only partially filled.
It Is believed the two dead birds
and the dog ate from the box be
fore the child found it, or that he
divided with them as he played
in the yard.
Both parents of the dead child
speak bu tbrokenly, and it was
with difficulty that they explain
ed the child's death to the police.
Today th epolice found that
when the Dinsky family moved to
their present home • three years
ago thei rold house was burned
to the ground, the fire being set
by someone unknown.
The father believes he is be
ing hounded by enemies, and* the
police are straining every point
to determine the identity of the
person who placed the candy by
the gate. They think this person
will prove to be the one who fired
the Dinsky home three yearß ago.
