Declares That All Democrats
Have to Do Next Tuesday
to Elect Wilson Is to
Vote Their Ticket.
Pennsylvania and Illinois in
Same Class; Roosevelt Ex-J
gcclcd to Poll Immense- -Number
of Voles. -
By International News Service.
NEV YORK, Sow 2. To clct.
Wood row Wilson by a tremen
dous plurality the Democrats
need only .vote for the' Demo
cratic ticket. A tour of the ten most
important states in the middle of tho
most excitingf campaign this country has
witnessed for many years, has led to tho
conviction that thc Democrats will
vote the Democratic ticket. Unlv in
New Jcrse3 Illiuoia, lowu, Minnesota
and Indiana aro there indications of
tho Ttooscvolt landslide, that, is so con
fidently predicted by the Bull Moosers.
And of these stutcs, Now Jersey alone
Eccms likely to give a larger percent
ace of her Democratic votes to Koosc
vclt. Getting down to a burl rock analy
sis: Thc Koosevelt; votes and there
will !)o a lot of thorn must come from
somowhere. An investigation shows
that by far the arcater number of thc.ni
arc coining Jfrom thc regular Jlcpubli
enn party. That is true in Illinois,
Minnesota, Iowa. Indiana, Ohio, Mis
souri aud New York. .
In none at these states is "Roosevelt
likclv to set at the oulsido more than
7o per cent of thc Taft vote.
Where Faith Stops.
"Likely" is tho right word. Of
late, the colonel has been growiuc pro
digiously. Ju some of tho states thc
Taft votes aro barely perceptible. But
to beat Wilsou Koosevelt has got to
get around 80 per cent of tho Repub
lican vote, and a few of tho leaders
who are carried away -with Bull Moose
enthusiasm, believe that this will be
hi the last two weeks a situation -has
arisen iii Now Jersey which is causing
; thc Democrats grave alarm. Two big!
leaders, Jim Smith and Jim Xugent,
havo been bowled over 1y Wilson, and
both arc suspected of an intention to
divido their following between Roosc- J
vclt and Taft, throwing the most' of
it to thc colonel. '
A journey taken late this -week be
fore election to Jcrsoy City. Newark,
New Brunswick, Elizabeth and Tren
ton proved convincingly that Roosevelt
is going to got an astonishing vote in
Governor Wilson's own state. All
these towus arc inaunfacturing cen
ters. And tho great army of working
men employed in them aro going to
give at least half of these votes to
Koosevelt. whether thoy.bo Pcmocrats
or hVpublirans. This is thc belief of
district loaders of all parties.". !
Sees Wilson Victory.
The ten states covered by the writer
havo Jl2l electoral votos among them,
enough with the sure Wilton votes- in
tho south to give Wilson tho victory.
'Phis is without reference to any far
westcru state or to New England.
In Ohio most Of the politicians be
lieve that Taft. will bo a bad third and
half of them concede that Wilson will
carrv tho state. Thc Wilson forces
have James Cox, thc cnudidato for gov
ernor. t help out tho ticket. Cox is
'far stronger than cither Gardner, tho
Bull Moose candidate, or General Kob'
crt Burns JJrown, tho Republican. Wal
ter Brown, tho Progressive chairman,
is not, claiming thc state for Roosevelt,
but be is aurc of second place and thc
Taft leaders arc not. very hopeful of
doing more than beating Koosevelt and
tho.v will bo pleasantly surprised if
they do that.
Indiana has a red-hot light for tho
covernorship, to which office ' Albert
Jeremiah Bo'Veridgc." ouce'lTnlted States
senator, aspires. Hcveridgc will probp
bly lead Rdoucvcll by twenty or thirty
thousand votes. Tho Taft people will
veto for Ralston, the Democrat, to beat
him ami for Wilson to beat Roosevelt,
for they :iro nll'.old-tinie politicians and
they zee their political demise- in sight
if Uoorovclt and Bceridgo are olected.
While a Koosevelt landslide -will put
Indiana in thc colonel's column, tljo
ncnenil belief is that Wilson will enrry
fhc stale.

N-3W YORK, Nov. 2. Estimates
gathered by New York World
Democratic correspondents in
ever .state in the country and
based upon the figures of the leaders
of nil tho parties, indicate that Wilson
and Marshall will carry thirty-nine of
tho forty-eight states, with a total of
481 out of the iiJU electoral votes:,
that President Taft; will carry several
states with a total of thirty-two votes;
that Colonel Roosevelt will carry two
states, -with a total of fifteen electoral
voles; that the Democrats will surely
win three senate seats and have an
overwhelming majority in the house;
that the popular plurality for Wilson
and Marshall will exceed 2,n00.000
votes; that thc plurality for Wilson
and Marshall in New York state will
approximate 120,000.
Victory for Wilson.
Unless the nation-wide Roosevelt,
-landslide which Progressive forces pro
fess to seo coming materialize there
is no taogible evidence of it liow, with
oloiUipJi. thecoayff- loe.iyjciv
son w.'l.' be the Jioxt'pfesident", of rfi
United States, lie wili by the first
president to bo credited to New .Jersey.
This forecast of thc outcomo of one
of thc greatest political struggles in the
nation's history is based upon a survey
of thc wholo couutry. Every stato of
tho United States has been canvassed
and all thc signs that men go by point
unfailingly to Woodrow Wilson as the
successful contender. By mathematical
computation it is impossible to get any
other result than Wilson.
Predicting in terms of figures re
moves doubt about the possibility of
tho contest being thrown into congress
by the deadlocking of thc electoral col
lege, but there is no telling whether
tho rules of the game will be adhered to
or not.
Silent Vote Potent.
Always a factor that baffles thc fore
caster, thc "silent vote" is more per
plexing in this campaign thau in any
that has preceded it and becauso of this
uuusuul condition every impartial pro
diction has annexed to it a qualification
by way of precaution.
Tho statements of the rival party
managers that are intended for public
consumption vary so widely that cither
sonio ono is sadly mibtakea or some
white lies arc being told.
Tbo campaign managers of Wilson, of
Koosevelt, of i aft, of Debs and of Chaf
in have given their final command. Af
ter an exhausting campaign that be
came brisk in February and cxccssivclj
strenuous in thc last two months, have
taken their noses from tho grindstone
and aro now fining back iu their chairs
Dcrvously awaitiug thc verdict.
Final Statements.
If Charles p. T lilies is to be believed.
President Taft's re-election is as cer
tain as that tomorrow's sun is to rise.
William F. McCombs is sure that Wil
son and Marshall will carry cverv state
with three or four exceptions, and Jo
seph M- Dixon's horizon contains noth
ing but triumph for Theodore K'ooic
volt. The vest pocket vote is made thc
more doubtful in tbi-r campaign because
nt' tho nrcscTieo of a new element the
Progressive narty. with thc marvelous
vitalitv 'of Thoodoro' Kootevclt bchiinl
it. It is the new parly. that makes use
less old methods of arriving j,t u fore
cast.. Thorn is no adequate Muudnrd
of comparison with- thrco big candi
dates in tbo Held. Tho nearest a p.
nroach to the exittiug situation was

Meeting at Salt Lake Theater
in Observance of Wilson j
Day. Is Enthusiastic
Tillman . Johnson : Delivers'
Speech Filled With Witti
cisms;, B. H. Roberts and
ME.- Wilson Talk
DEMOCRATS crowded the Salt
Lake theater last night at tho
most largcPy attended rally of
tho campaign, and listened to
tbc prize orators of thc Utah Democ
racy for three hours. Thc occasion
was the observance of Wilson du3.
Yesterday was the day designated by
tho national Democratic committee as
Wilson day to. be obscrvod in every
state iu the union. At each meeting
a message of Governor Wilson to thc
people of thc United States was read.
At last night's meeting the messago
of Governor Wilson was read by Will
G. Farrell, and was greeted with cheers.
Johnson Is Witty.
One of the wittiest addresses of tho
campaign was that delivered at the,
meeting by Tillman D. Johnson of Og
de.n, Democratic ' candidate for con
gress. Mr, Johnson presented an clp
qucut and forceful argument that
sparkled with' humor. He was most
enihusiastlcaliy received and the' audi
ence cheered him to the echo.
Brigham lb. Roberts discussed, admir
'iibyM-hc-'peron;Llirtj"'thc- three can$
didatca for president of the Uuitcd
States, takiug occasion to show what he
termed the fallacy of thc arguments
presented by Senator Reed Snioor. He
occasioned sovcral laughs at the ex
pense of the senior senator from Utah.
Convert Gives Reasons.
M. E. Wilson, until recently a Repub
lican, told of his conversion to tho Dem
ocratic party, .lie urged sovcral argu
ments iu favor of thc election of Gov
ernor Woodrow Wilson for president.
He concluded his argument by urging
tho people to go to tho polls and voto
for whomsoever they pleased but to
voto according to their best judgment,
unhampered by any dictation or influ
ence from outside of their own con
science. Moyle Is Chairman.
James H. Moyle presided nt thc meet
ing. IIo was presented to tho audieuco
by Samuel R. Tliurmau. slate chairman
of tho Democratic parly, aud iu a briof
introductory, statement Mr. Moylo ex
plained his position on tho wool tariff
which has been much discussed during
tho campaign. Air. Moyle said that thc
organ of lho federal bunch had deliber
ately misstated his position on tho wool
tariff. lie said that ho had gono to
Washington iu the interests 0f the Na
tional Woolgrowcrs associat ion when thc
bill relative tp the wool tariff was pond
ing. Tho bill passed by tho Demou-ratic
house, he said, was satisfactory to thc
woolgrowcrs. The tariff on wool, ho
said, was a fraud and a deceit. .It pro
tected tbo manufacturer, he declared,
but gave no benefit lo tho woolgrowcr.
Jacob and Joseph.
Tillmnu D. Johnson began by saying:
During the present campaign m
Identity on occii.-lons lias boon mis
taken. jo I wish to say thut my
mime Is not Jacob, but Tillman, and
1 do not hull from Sftiipctc. .Jacob
Is a n old and honorable niuno, while

Hint was not tho modern Jacob and
not thc modern Joseph.
Raises Big Laugh.
Tho story was gtceted with load and
prolonged applause and laughter, and
it was several moments before "Air
Johnson could proceed.
With droll humor Mr.' Johnson kept
the audience in an uproar of laughter.
IIo declared that the last swan cry of
tho Rrpiiblicnns was "hard times,"
lie called attention to tho Americau
panics of history, pointing out that
the nauics of IS"-" and It'll" were un
