Chairman Griggs Says They
Will Have a Majority of
Twenty at Least
APATHY OF REPUBLICANS
Denial of the Statement That This
Element Has Disap
But in Spite of This, Says Mr. Griggs,
the Democrats Will Secure a Good
Working Majority in the House—
Democrats Are Everywhere Wide
Awake and Alert.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. I.—
Chairman J. K. Griggs, of the Demo
cratic congressional committee, tonight
issued the following statement:
'"The next house of representatives
will have a Democratic majority of not
less than twenty. How many more
than this we shall have can be deter
mined only after the counting of the
votes polled on Tuesday next. It de
pends largely, as every election does,
on the weather and otiher conditions
which cannot be forecasted.
"The Republican leaders have been
until recently complaining of apathy.
For the last day or two for political
purposes they are claiming that they
have overcome this to a large extent
and are faint-heartedly predicting suc
"Reports to us do not indicate that
this Is true. Republicans everywhere
appear heartless and even careless of
the result. We- find that our Demo
cratic friends are wide awake and alert
in every district in the United States
where there is a. fight. It is well to
understand that the last apportionment
bill was so drafted as to add nineteen
Republicans and ten Democrats to the
house, a Republican advantage of nine
in addition to the present majority.
"The legislatures of the Republican
states, where possible to do so, have
outrageously gerrymandered congres
sional districts so as to create a few
heavily Democratic districts and many
Republican districts by what they con
sider safe majorities. This is notably
the case in Illinois and New York, but
these states have had a habit of play
ing havoc with political gerrymanders
in the past and we believe that this is
a year in which there will bi a repeti
tion of this.
"We are not depending on this, how
ever, for our majority named above.
Even if these states go as they were
gerrymandered to go we shall have a
Democratic house by a safe working
NEGRO BURNED FOR
A DOUBLE MURDER
Two White Men, Supposed Accom
plices, Prove Aiibis and Are
DARLING, Miss., Nov. I.—An un
known negro was burned at the stake
here last night for the murder of E. O.
Jackson and a mill owner named Ro
selie, at Darling. Two white men, im
plicated by the negro in his dying con
fession, are being held by a posse
pending an investigation.
The negro was burned by a mob of
4,000 persons, white and black, and
just before the lighting of the funeral
pyre he confessed that he had com
mitted the double murder with the as
sistance of two white men. The mo
tive was robbery and a considerable
sum was secured, which the negro
stated was divided among the three.
After the .burning a posse Avent in
search of the two white K-jt^Jand soon
captured them. They are being held
pending an investigation of their guilt
or innocence, and it is believed that a
double lynching will follow if guilt is

OF SOFT COAL INTERESTS

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov. I.—J. Pier
pont Morgan came to this city today.)
The Plaindealer says:
"A report which could not be verified
was in circulation today that Mr. Mor
gan's visit to both Chicago and Cleveland
was in connection with the proposed
combination of all the soft coal inter
ests in the country. For the past two
years there has been a gradual merg
ing of the various soft coai-producing
concerns until the business, it is said,
is now practically in the hands of a
comparatively few individuals.
"Mr. Morgan is credited with being
largely instrumental in combining the
Hocking valley field in this state,
while the firm of M. A. Hanna & Co.
has gained practical control of the en
tire output of the Massillon field. It
is said that constant efforts have been
quietly made recently to unite* the soft
coal pfoducers in Indiana and Illinois,
and it Is pointed out that as Mr. Mor
gan is largely interested in the move
ment his visit to Chicago, as well as
to Cleveland, had to do with this pro
Two Pennsylvania Concerns.
"Negotiations were commenced sev
eral days ago to effect a consolidation
of the Pittsburg Coal company arid
the Monongahela Consolidated Coal,
and Coke company, two of the largest
producing concerns in Western Penn
sylvania, which control a very large
proportion of the output of the Pitts
burg district. The merging of these
two companies would mean a capitali
zation of $110,000,000, with assets of
"A still larger deal is now said to be
contemplated in which not only Sena
tor Hanna, but J. Pierpont Morgan,
are reputed to have a direct interest.
A strong rivalry has existed between
the Pittsburg and the Monongahela
companies to the detriment of the in
terests of both. This year the rivalry
has'increased and has been found to
be so unsatisfactory that every effort
has been made to consolidate the com
panies. The two companies failed to
renew the contracts of the preceding
year, and no agreement was reached.
This made a' complete split and
brought about the increased rivalry
which will probably result in the com
plete merging of the two companies."

LONDON, Nov. 1.--No recent public

censuring the outspoken w -. The

against Sir. Horace's characterization

"whether Great Britain has many such

life to place at the disposal of their
Countrymen their experience gained
during active service. The Daily
Chronicle raises the question: "Should
diplomats ever be unmuzzled?" and
"Wliile Sir Horace has been very in
discreet, it must be admitted that it is
sometimes the best part of discretion
to look facts fairly in the face. This
country desires to live in peace arid
concord with all the other powers and

LeonarQ A. Rosing's Views on Convict Labor.
Last evening, at Minneapolis, I was called upon by a dele- \
gation representing the various trade unions in the State for *
an expression as $& my views upon the subject of the em- <
ployment of conuietk&or. This subject has-teen discussed <
in the various labor assemblies in the State for some years <
past, occupy ng mush of their time, thus showing the deep <
interest that they take in the question of the State's position «
as to the present system of contracting convict labor to pri- \
vote corporations and individuals, and thus permitting com- *
petition qfconuict labor with the free labor of the state. \
lam more than glad to frankly express mg views on this \
/ believe that convicts, should be employed in all cases
upon State account, only; that no contract of their labor
should be gto&n to any private individual or corporation.
I believe that in our State we should increase the capacity of
our twine plant to such an extent as to be able to supply the
farmers of the Northwest with all the twins that they may
need. This industry will not compete with any free labor in
our State. Such portion of the labor in the State Prison as
cannot be employed in the twine industry, if there be any,
should be employed on State account in the same manner as
it is in some of odr Eastern States, where convict labor is not
permitted to come into competition with free labor and thus
pauperize the l-abbr of their State.

SHOTGUNS AT THE
This May be the Outcome of the Par-
tisan Ruling of a Republican
Judge on Ballots.
Special to The Globe.
DENVER, Col., Nov. I.—A stormy
time, with possibly bloodshed, is like
ly to attend the balloting next Tuesday
as the result of registration complica
tions. Judge Johnson, a Republican,
acting on an application of the Repub
lican county committee, today granted
an injunction restraining the clerks
and judges of election from receiving
fraudulent ballots. The Democrats say
this constitutes a serious menace to the
peace of the county; that every Dem-
ocrat may be disfranchised upon the
mere word of a Republican judge, who
may assert that-the Democrat's name
is not upon the legal list of voters.
The Democrats have appealed to the
supreme court for a modification of, the
order and an emergency meeting of the j
justices was held tonight, but action
was deferred until Monday in the "hope
. that the campaign managers may come
to some agreement.
Meanwhile a vigilance committee of
twenty-five Republicans and twenty
five Democrats has been named to pre
vent disorder. The Republicans charg
ed that the Democratic county officials
had fraudulently placed on the lists
twenty good names, but gave no spec
ifications, and Judge Johnson said he
would not take testimony or exact
proof of the allegations. He said to
night that his order would not be mod
"If the supreme court says that 1
have overstepped my bounds, all right.
The voters will then have to settle
their troubles with clubs and shotguns
at the polls."

Coler, Democratic Candidate
for Governor, Says His
Election is Certain
ODELL ALSO CONFIDENT
Leaders of Both Parties Predict 40,000
to 50,000 Majorities for
CONSERVATIVE MEN TALK
OF ONLY 10,000 MAJORITY
One Prophet Declares That Coler Will
Go to the Bronx With 112,000 to the
Good—Outlook for the Election in
Other Leading States Outlined in De
NEW YORK, Nov. I.—With the lead
ers of both parties confident of suc
cess and predicting majorities of 40,000
or 50,000 for their respective tickets,
the state campaign for the election
next Tuesday was brought to a close
tonight. The candidates of the two
leading parties for governor chose the
battle ground of Kings county for their
speeches tonight, while former Senator
Hill was In Buffalo making a final ef
fort to capture Erie county. •
Conservative men in both the leading
parties predicted that success would
be won- with a majority possibly as
small as 10,000 and all predictions are
based on widely different estimates of
the majority fhe Democratic ticket will
show up to the Bronx and the major
ity which the Republican ticket will
bring down there from up the state to
Gov. Ocfell's Claim.
Gov. Oaell himself today predicted
the success of the Republican state
ticket by 50,300, while Chairman Dunn,
of the state committee, clung to his
prediction of 67,000 for the ticket. He
was sure of Erie county by 3,000 to
5(000 and he said that Monroe county
was Republican notwithstanding - the
alleged settlement of the differences
between the Democrats of that county
and Rochester. The : alleged defection
of. Republicans on account of the nom-.
ination -of -Attorney General Davies
for supreme court justice in the Fifth
judicial-i. district was all Imaginary
he said today.,
"There are two issues," said Col.
Dunn —"the economical administration
of Gov. Odell and the mudslinging of
Ex-Gov. Hill. The first was almost
enough to return. Gov. Odell, and the
second is reacting with deadly effect
upon the Democratic party."
Coler Confident of Winning. ■
While Gov. Odell and Col. Dunn
were thus expressing their confidence,
Bird S. Coler, the Democratic nominee
for governor, and Chairman Camp
bell, of the state committee, were maki
ing similar statements for their party
in the state..
"I have received reports of the most
encouraging character from up state
and I am absolutely certain* of my elec
tion," said Mr. Coler.
Chairman Campbell said: "The out
look- Is encouraging." He gave out no
further direct statement today, but in
explanation of his reticence he said a
detailed statement of claims of his
party probably would be made public
today. He added that early in the
campaign he had decided that a policy
