The Elec toral College, which will determine who are to be the next President end Vice President of the United States, will cast 531 otes, coming from- the forty-eight States of the Union, according to population. The candidates receiving 266 votes of this 531 will for the next four years preside, respectively, at the White House and over the Senate. SOLID SOUTH CONCEDED. Let us begin this forecast by conceding to Woodrow Wilson and Thomas R. Marshall those States whose Democracy neither moth nor rust can corrupt nor thieves break through and steal. These arc Alabama, Arkansas Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Car olina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Add to these Missouri, which was carried four cars ago by 539 and which is as certain as death and taxes to go for Wilson this year, and the total is 157 votes. Still ee-d 109 Vote.. Given these States. Wilson and Mar phall still need 1W votes In the electoral college to Kin Will thcr get them? Let me review the situation: The candidacy of Theodore Roosevelt, heading a neji party, has mad'; tt the most interesting campaign for the Presi dency this country has witnessed within the memory of men now living Humor? of an undercurrent for Roosevelt that Tnaj develop Into a landslide are In the air. The Roosevelt leaders are making extravagant claims Listen to them and ou will be convinced that the colo nel will be the next President But wait minute. Reduce the situation to cold mathe matics. Taft pluralities four ears ago ranged from 539 in Missouri to more than sno.000 in Pennsjlvanla. Ten States, w ith New York .at the east erly end and Iowa at the westerly end. can upset that plurality and give the election to Wilson and Marshall In each of these ten States the writer has spent some time, and unless the Roosevelt "undercurrent" amounts to far more than Is discernible at the present writ ing, Wilson and Marshall, merelj by holding the normal Democratic vote, will get enough votes to keep the election safely out of the House of Representa tives and Install them in Washington by both electoral and popular majorities. This, of course. Is reckoning without the Roosevelt landslide. Opposed on Two Side. Grant the Bull Moose cause all the strength that Is claimed for it; but re member that it is stubbornly opposed, not only by a minority party that, buoj ed by the hope of victory, will vote almost as a unit, but "by a baffled standpat wing cf the Republican party which, rather than see Roosevelt win, will cheerfully vote the Democratic ticket. Give Roosevelt Minnesota, Michigan. Iowa, Illinois, and New Jersey, all of which his managers confidently claim. These States among them number eighty-three votes. Concede to Wilson, Ohio, Wisconsin, and New York, and any one of the New England States, and he la elected. This la Ignoring many States which Wilson is sure to carry, and Is not taking Into account Cali fornia and Washington, which Roosevelt may possibly carry, but which will not vail further than to give him second place In the running.

All Managers Claim Victory Special to The Washington Hnald. New York, Nov. 2. Complete victory for William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson in the election next Tuesday was predicted in election forecasts made to-day by the chairmen of the Republican, Progressive, and Democratic parties. All three managers claim the doubtful States, and predict victory by a good margin for their respective candidates. "Taft and Prosperity," "Lower the-Cost of Living," and "Down with the Bosses" are the battle cries. By CHARLES DEWEY HILLEs, Chairman of the Bftnbucan Committee. William Howard Taft is assured of a second term as President of the United States. The attempts to wreck the Re publican party have failed and theyoters pf the nation will return him to the White House as an indorsement of his progressive principles and his main tamance of legislation restraints. During- President Taft's administration the nation has been plentifully prosper ras and I am confident that the intelli gent voters or the United States will not place that prosperity In jeopardy by trying any-experimenls. President Taft will be re-elected. ' . . SHERMAN RITES HELD IN UTIOA Funeral Sinricts for Vici PrisidMt Markt. by Simplicity. Utlca, Nov. 2.

Postmaster General Hitchcock, Secretary of Com merce and Labor Nagel, and Attorney General Wlckershom, concerning the appointment of a successor to the late Vl'-e President Sherman on the Repub lican Presidential ticket. So far as could be discovered no person was defi nitely decided upon, and the Attorney General and the Postmaster General both declared they did not think that the name of Mr. Sherman's successor would be made known until after election. Chairman Hllles is known to oppose this procedure, being desirous of naming the President's running mate before next Tuesday. This being the case.

BOILER EXPLODES; TWO LOSE LIVES Four Mort Sailors Scaldtd in Accident on Battleship Viraoat. Norfolk. Va., Nov. 2. With two dead and four men seriously Injured as a result of the exploding of a boiler on the battleship Vermont this morn Ins;, the hospital ship Solace to-night lies In Hampton Roads with her flags at half-mast. The dead men are M. P. Horan. coal paaser and R. M. Wagner, a fireman. The Injured are H. W. Cramer. J. W. Newberry, M. W. Green, and C K. Hottallng. The explosion occurred shortly be fore 2 o clock this morning while the Vermont was at anchor on the south ern drill grounds, awaiting the break of day, for the beginning of regular fall target practice. There were only six men In the fire room, when the head of No. 6 boiler blew out with terrific force. Wagner and Horan. being the nearest to the boiler, received the full force of steam and boiling water all over their bodies. The fires were banked, but the room was excessively hot. and the men wore only their trousers and thin under shirts. The escaping steam caught every one of the six men before they had time to escape. Wagner and Ho ran were literally boiled to death. The entire ship's crew was asleep save the few men on watch, but the sound of escaping steam and the cries of the injured men soon drew rescuers to the spot Green and Cramer, it Is said, with the skin literally peeling from their arms, faces, breasts and legs, tried their best to rescue Wagner and Horan. Green Is reported to have fallen on his face In the mass of boiling water, while en deavoring to drag one of his fallen com rades to safety. Rescnrm Are Overcome. Newberry and Green when brought on deck were unconscious The cloud of steam prevented rapid work. The first rescuers were overcome and were re lieved by others. Wagner and Cramer., the former still unconscious, and hardly recognizable, were next to be hoisted out Into the open. While the rescuers were still at work another heavy volume of steam told that another enmpntmnt of thS K'2r bad spn'ng. A c'yujf of appeals lor help frtn below Itr.t greater speed to the rescuers. Several engineers -entertd the after part of the engine rooms and, after swathing their heads In wet band ages, managed to grope tbelr way through the steam and turn off the feed I pipes. Ho-an and Hottallng finally were found half immersed In scalding water. The condition of the four survivors Is reported to be extremely critical to night. When the Vermont signalled other ships In the fleet that there had been an explosion on board, the South Dakota and the Utah sent launches with sur geons and hospital stewards. The Ver mont got under way as soon as possible and made a record run to Hampton Roads. She left the Southern drill grounds at 2 o'clock this morning and was in Hampton Roads by 8 o'clock. Wagner and Horan were still alive when the Vermont started for Hampton Roads, but died on the way. BOARD OP INQUIRY TO PROBE EXPLOSION A board of Inquiry has been appointed to investigate the explosion aboard the Vermont In which two men lost their lives and four were badly svalded In Hampton Roads last night. The opinion here is that the explosion was due to the low water in the boiler. It Is pointed out that because the fires were banked the chances are that there was a neglect of proper observation The glass gauge, it was shown. In the raso of the recent accident on the Delaware, is not an Infallible guide, as It was tes tified that the Delaware's gauge read ing showed water in the boilers, when as a matter of fact many of the boilers were proved to have been dry and ter ribly superheated at the hour of the explosion. Gives Wilson 360 Electoral Voles. New York. Nov. 2. The Herald In Its election poll to be Issued to-morrow divides the electoral vote as follows: Wilson, J60; Taft, 27; Roosevelt, 7: doubtful. 137. The Herald table gives Wlson 30 States; Taft. 6 (Idaho. New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Utah. Vermont, and Maine), and Roosevelt 1 (Washington). The doubtful States are California. Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts. Mon tana. New Jersey, North Dakota. Ore gon. Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and Wyoming-. By SENATOR JOSEPH M. DIXON, Chairman of the PrognerfTS Naponal Committee Theodore Roosevelt next Tuesday will win the greatest victory of his public career. The contest Is" only between Roosevelt and Wilson. Taft has a chance of carrying only four states and I believe that he will lose two of these, namely. New Mexico and Vermont. The other two are Wyoming and Utah. Pennsylvania. Illinois, Michigan, and California will go overwhelmingly for Roosevelt. In the Southern States- a tremendous vote will be polled by the Progressives because Southerners now feel that thex can vote for the candidate jet s non-sectional political party. FIREMEN WORK TWO HOURS ON STUBBORNBLAZE Flames Cause $25,000 Da age in Bemtfi Street Build- lag Near Aveeue. ATTRACTS THOUSANDS Barnkirt Brotiirs & Spindle and Sublissiis Principal Lssirs. - Fire of mysterious origin in the three story stone and brick building at CS-427-13 Eleventh Street Northwest, occu pied by Barnhart Brothers v. Spindle and several sublessees, caued damage estimated at 5.000 last night and fur nished an interesting spectacle to thou sands of theatergoers. The flames were extinguished only after a hard fight. Just how the fire started Is a mystery which police and fire officials have not vet solved, but six workmen on the sec ond floor of the building, comprising a "night shift," who were warned only by the clang of tire gongs, say the blaze originated near a radiator In the middle of the second floor and leaped upward to the third floor in a "jiffy." Fuel In the shape of three carloads of paper stored on the third floor was found by the flames, and before any of th six night workers realized their peril a threatening blaze was raging and sending mammoth clouds of smoke aloft, wrere they were caught by the wind and scat tered In Tenth Street and Pennsj viinla Avenue, attracting thousands of persons to the scene. Firemen Apprehensive. At 9 M o'clock. Jut a few seconds after the blaze was Keen by a policeman, an alarm aai sounded at fire headquarters which sent four engine companies, two truck companies, the water tower, and two chiefs to the scene. The block be tween Tenth. Eleventh, and E Streets, and Pennsjlvanla Avenue la known to firemen air a "bad district." and the horses were let out on the way to the fire. Five minutes after the fire was first seen Engine Companies Nos 2. 6, 14 and IS were at the plugs under full steam. Truck Companies Nos. 3 and 4 were putting ladders into position In the front and rear of the burning building Bat talion Chief Proctor and Acting Deputy Chief Dixon were voicing hoarse orders through hand megaphones. Six minutes after the fire was first seen the Lremen were In the thick of battle against the flames. " The fire was stubborn. Burled '.n the heart of tons of paper stored In the rear of the third floor the flames Seemed to defy the tons of water aimed at It from a score of hose nozzles. Clouds of black smoke rolled up and away from the flames, choked and Impeded the flremtn and excited the spectators. Now and then the flare of flame could be seen against the sky.

ACTORGONFESSES HEK1LLEDW0MAN Charles N. Kramer, or Charles Conway, Tells of Singer Murder. Chicago, Nov. i "I killed Fepitla O. Singer. I killed her without Intending to do so. while the wan fighting me with a razor In her hand. I did not know I had killed her until I read It in the news papers afterward." That confession was made to Captain of Folic Max Nootbaar this afternoon by Charles Newton Kramer, known on the stage and usually In private life as Charles Conway. The confession came at the end of a night and day of what the police call the "silent treatment." Kramer confessed calmly, and supplemented his confession with a statement In which he vividly described the scene both before and after the killing. This Is Kramer's state ment: "At 9.30 on Monday night Miss Singer came into the room occupied by mv wife and me. She had her shoes In her hand and she seemed In a gay mood. Well, we're getting pretty hard up.' she said. 'I guess It's up to Lillian and me to go out and get some money." "Then she suggested that the and my wife should go out on the street and get some money. "My wife and I reented that sugges tion. I said some pretty bitter things, I guess, and so did my wife. "Sophia kept getting madder and mad der at the things we said Finally she jumped at me and plunged her finger nails Into my cheeks. "I noticed she had something in her left hand, but I grappled with her and tried to take it away from ner. Cntrkes Up Rnsor. "Just as I managed to get hold of her left wrist she lurched toward ray dresser and caught my razor with her right hand. "I managed to get hold of her left hand and took from her the object she was holding. It proved to be a door knob billy. "Then I kept on struggling, but she was swinging the razor close to my face, and she was so strong I could not keep safe from the razor. Then I struck her on the back of the head with the doorknob. She fell back on the bed. but she was only stun ned. In a moment she came to and started to scream. To silence her I stuffed a handker chief into her throat, bound It over her mouth, and Ued her up the best I could. I did not think she was seriously hurt. "When I had gone that far I began to think about Worthen "We'd better beat It before he gets back.' I said to my wife, and sl.e agreed with me. Escapes to Hammond. "We didn't have money enough to go far. so I took 335 from Sophia and a couple of suits of Worthen's clothes, and the suit cases. Then we beat It out the back way and went by trolley to Hammond. "That's all there Is to It." Kramer proved an easy subject for the "silent treatment." He was placed In his cell Friday morning and orders were given that no one should speak to him. Guards passed the cell door at frequent Intervals and Kramer at first tried to engage them In conversation. They would merely look at him. say nothing, and then pass on. This morning Capt. Nootbaar went to the cell door, greeted Kramer with a short "good morning" and went away. The plan was that he should do a great deal of thinking. In the afternoon he was brought Into Nootbaar'a office, and even there foi more than half an hour no reference was made to the crime of which he Is accused. Finally Capt. Nootbaar paused. look at the man shrewedly and said: "Well. Kramer want to tell me some thing?" Kramer reflected for several minutes. flJS Baltimore nnd Return, Baltimore nnd Ohio.

Turkish Ambassador to the United States, yesterday. "When the Immense resources of my country have been brought to bear against the allies I have no doubt that victory will be theirs. My country Is not upon its knees suelng for peaoe, all reports to the contrary not withstanding. "The allies have accomplished many brilliant and dramatic feats, but noth ing very solid. The blowing up of the Turkish battleship Feth-I-Belund was a spectacular thing, but what of solid ac complishment had it for the enemy? "Turkey Is a great and powerful em pire, and Its resources in Asia are tre mendous. When all this Is brought to bear the tide of victor- wil turn against me invaders oi my country ana tnetr temporary and unsubstantial successes will be shown to contain nothing but a strong appeal to the public Imagination. The seemingly triumphant entry of the Bulgars into Turkey by way of Mustapha Pasha has suffered no severo opposition from the Turkish forces.

The Turks still hold two lines of forts, if indeed by this time they have not ac cepted final obliteration and begun th dreaded entrance to th" capital. One line of forts is at Tchatalja, twen-t-flve miles north of the capital, and the other stretches across the peninsula in front of Constantinople. The ever-advancing Bulgarian line, at last reports, extends from Midla on the Black Sea coast to Rodosto, on the Sea of Marmora. Progress of the fighting to-night is un known, except that artillery tire has been heard at ConstanUnople. One dispatch from Prague states that Adrlanople has capitulated and the allien have taken tO.OCO prisoner.
