The following figures are presented to Republican voters, who may, at this time,
be considering whether or not, on November 5 th next, they will vote aSTRAIGHT
PARTY' ticket or a SPLIT. TICKET. Four years ago NORMAN WATKINS

Republicans voting for McClellan.
The vote in the whole county for Watkins and McClellan was as follows:

McClellan DEFEATED Watkins by 167 votes
Now since Watkins LED the supervisorial ticket in the 3d, 4th and 5th Precincts
it is reasonable' to assume that the Republicans in those precincts wanted HIM elected in
preference to any other candidate, and yet the figures show that the Republican votes
cast for McClellan were really the means of DEFEATING Watkins.
Now, on the eve of another election day there is talk of Republicans splitting the
SENATORIAL and SUPERVISORIAL tickets, but it is hoped that a study of the
above figures may convince them that the SPLIT TICKET is often the means of

It was the conclusive opinion of Mr.

"All my information is uniformly en

"The tide is setting strong to Taft
The reasons for. tni& are numerous,
but in the main they have to do with
the universal desire for a continuation
cf prosperity and the thoroughly
grounded opposition of the American
to any President holding office for a
third term. There is now not tne
slightest possibility that Col. Roose
velt, the third term candidate, catf be
elected. He will be so badly jdistanced
that his defeat will clearly register the
will of the pedple as to the indlspensa
h?lity of any man in the office of Presi
dent. With that much settled, the peo
ple are rapidly revolving in their
minds whether they will take chances
on a new administration and the un
settled conditions that are almost sure
to follow-sucn an administration.
"I am told by the best judges of po
litical affairs that the western farm
ers, for a long time disposed to be
lieve something was wrong in the con
duct of the government, have reached
the point where they believe that a
change in the party in power would
br inimical to their interests-and prob
ably cause such an upsetting in all di
rections as would materially lower the'
prices on farm product. When pros
perity departs, from the farm it also
lttyves through the .baclc doors of the
homes of the workingmen and flies out
of windows of the business man, the
professional man" and all other classes.
"The big change in political senti
menl that is going on is amply illifs
treted in the case of Ohio. Less than
two months ago the third pariy term
candidate and his followers were
claiming the state by a big vote, i
know positively that they do not any
longer make such claims, and frankly
admit that they haven't any hope in
the home of ...r. Taft.
"Ohio farmers and workingmSn
know what it is to experience hard
times. They experienced this some
years ago. when they changed admin
istrations .and once since under the
man who is trying to make them think
that he can do so much for them.
What the Ohio voter is thinking is
about the same thing that is shaping
itself in the heads of voters in all
other states-. All of which means that

nonymous with good times and settled

ANNAPOLIcJ, Md., October 7. It is
evidently the purpose of Capt John
Gibbons, superintendent of the NAvalJ
Academy, to keep midshipmen from
getting into debt to any extent ,
It has been learned here tbat Capt
Gibbons has called on midshipmen (o
render sworn statements at once as
to their outstanding indebtedness.
Thl$ is in line wit, the custom Insti
tuted by him a year ago.
It is a well known fact that in re
cent years many ot the middies have
gone largely into, debt In connection
with premature orders for uniforms
and other wearing apparel. Wb
amount of debts the authorities would
permit the middies to assume is not
known. It is said, however, that none
of the students wil be permitted" to
contract debts amounting, to more
than ?200.

there was a decline in the amount of

With a fair amount of business re
ported today the gratifying fact is to
be recorded that there are two slight
recoveries and not one decline in su

The naval bureau of ordnance has
decided to offer for sale about 110 six
and eight inch guns and mounts of old
design, now stored at the varioas navy
yards. These guns are distributed
among the following yards: Washing
ton, .Mare Island, Puget Sound, Phil
adelphia, New York. Boston and Ports
mouth. About the only use that has been
suggested for them is in the coast de
fense of some of the smaller countries.
It would scarcely pay any country to
attempt to place them on their gun-
l-oatr, as it would be necessary to se-
cure new mountings for them, and )
there are very few vessels outside of
the navies if large countries that could
carry them. After giving the matter
the fullest consideration, the bureau
of ordnance has decided that the navy
never will be able to find any use for .
these old guns.
At present they are a source of ex- J
pense to the navy, ac it is necssai' to '
inspect them periouically and take as
much care or tnem as it tney were to
be used at any time.
