Recent reports from Michigan are
somewhat better for the Republicans
and theie Is every Indication that they
will carry the State now, but with a
small margin, In spite of the fact that
four years ago both Taft and Roosevelt
Individually got more than the Wilson
vote, Henry Kord has been the cause
of much trouble to the Repuhllcans, par
tlculaily In Detroit. His advertising
campaign baa been extensive and some
what effective, and the Kord Influence
will result In cutting down Republican
pluralities. Detroit Is normally Repub
lican by :o,(ino, but this year It will
probably glxa Wilson a slight leud.
This, however, will certainly he wiped
out In the rest of the State, Ihe tural
vote being almost solidly with the Re

the Republicans a lot of trouble In De
