The attitude of the business Interests of the state, he said, combined with the effect of the action of the Baltimore Federation of Labor in endorsing Senator La Follette, would do much to determine the result. Senator Weller left with the presi dent a statement giving figures as to registration and the vote in the elec tlona of 1896, 1900 and 1920 when the , republican national tickets carried the state.

The most serious rituation, he said, was In AVest Virginia where, It was admitted, difficulty was being met in complying with the election law.
