MESSENGER. NKW YORK, October .to.?Beginning, today, the democrats 'w ill make a play j unique in campaigns. Starting lrom points up-state, forty-eight automobiles, each carrj ing four speakers, will tour the countryside from now until election day. } The speakers will stop at small hamlets j and crossroad stores and discuss nation- j al issues. Special effort will be directed to boosting democratic candidates for i Congress. The democrats are greedy, j They want to take all the candy away j from the republicans. President C. IT. Markham of the Illinois Central railroad lias just completed a tour of the railroad lines through Illinois and predicts that Gov. Wilson will j carry the state by a large majority. "From my observation." said Mr. Markham, "1 have become convinced that business has been divorced from politics,, and this is a very good sign. We made rather a leisurely trip through the state, and I made It my business to talk to our employes, merchants and professional men on all sides. I asked at all times this question, Who is going to be elected? Who do you think you will vote for?" 1 found an astonishingly large number of railroad men, and I mean the ni n who arc doing the hard work, who said they were going to vote for Wilson." Believes Wilson Will Carry Ohio. James M. Cox, candidate for Governor of Ohio, sent the following message to national democratic headquarters today: i "In my campaign, which has taken in mintir if* tl**? ctntf* Tfl * observations lead me to believe that Gov. Wilson w-il carry Ohio by l?XM?0O. The people believe that he is genuinely representative of the spirit of the day, that he has correctly analyzed conditions, and that hi<5 theories of government are looked upon by the people as the proper remedy. "His campaign, which has been intelligent and forceful, has been maintained on a clean base and he has made a wonderful impression in this state. I am led to believe that the manifestation of public Approval Is due in large degree to the belief that the problem is one of race development, that the human unit must have greater consideration under the law j than tlie property unit, and that while industrial conditions must be made mine! wholesome, another fold of activity lies in the direction of great human uplift work." Republicans Return to Taft. II. M. Daugherty, republican state chairman, sent the following to republican headquarters: "Since the collapse of the third term movement became so apparent that its leaders gave up Ohio,, republicans with Roosevelt leanings who fear the election of Wilson have come baek to Taft. On the other hand ' republicans who intended to vote for Wilson because they f?-ar?d Roosevelt's election have likewise returned to Taft. Democrats who fear a change are also for Taft. Mechanics, farmers and merchants ar??| foi a continuance of good times. The turning to Taft in the last three weeks transcends all past po.itical changes in Ohio. I'oils are as unreliable as street car straw votes, but I ' arn convinced the drift to Taft is overwv,emling, and I repeal with more contidence than ever what 1 have often said, I will be surprised if we do not carry Ohio." Pnnnts flnnnertieut. for Taft. Republican State Chairman J. H. Rora-1 back of Connecticut sent the following:' "I confidently expect a handsome plu- i rulity for President Taft in Connecticut. j As the campaign has developed in this j state there- has been a steady growth of , sentiment in favor of President Taft. That sentiment is growing very rapidly now, and it is not confined to any one or two sections of the state. It is general and it is strongest in the cities where manufacturing interests are the main business. Hut it is also getting stronger in the country towns. "We look for victory for Taft for these reasons principally, but also because the pro-Roosevelt sentiment is 011 the wane. A host of recent Roosevelt men have left the bull moose ranks because they realize that to vote that ticket would enhance the chances of Gov Wilson. They have ] also learned that Senator Dixon, the j Roosevelt manager, voted with the democrats for the 1'nderwood bill when it came to the Senate, and they, being tiieni- i selves protectionists, do not feel like trusting power to those who are antiprotectionists."

SEPT OUTMlD IN Military Employed to Exclude Opposition Members From Hungarian Parliament. BUDAPEST, Hungary, October 30.?The members of the opposition in the Hungarian parliament when they tried to enter the house today were met by a strong military cordon which completely surrounded the parliament buildings and prevented their approach. The opposition deputies. led by Count Albert Apponyi, Count Michael Karolyt and Francis Kossuth, made an attempt to get through, hut were forced to retire. Before doing so they made a violent protest. The dissension in the Hungarian parliament has been continuo.us since May 22, when Count Tisza was elected speaker of the lower house. Bitter Feeling Prevails. Count Tisza's resistance to universal suffrage, which is demanded by the opposition. has caused great bitterness and has led to frequent violent scenes in parliament and rioting in the streets of Budapest. June 7 Count Tisza narrowly escaped assassination in the house where Deputy Julius Kovacs tired at him three times. The opposition members were then ejected and the proceedings have been carried on since solely by members of the government party. (* ? 11 J s ? * "5^ y^Ct^y /nsL/- ? * ,* j&c. TV.

She had practiced fori several days, but for some reason or | other failed today. She struck the vessel with the bottle three times, but not with sufficient force to break the glass. As the vessel was sliding down the ways, however, a man grasped the rope to which was attached the bottle and i swung with such force that the bottle j cleared the New York's prow and burst with a great pop on the port side. Miss i Calder was assisted by little Miss Kath- ; leen Fitzgerald, daughter of Representa- [ tive James Fitzgerald, as flower girl j The day was ideal for the launching, and ; the great ship took the water of the channel without mishap. Music, But No Speeches. President Taft sat with Secretary Meyer, Gov. Dix, Rear Admiral Osterhaus, J. P. Morgan and others on a platform just off the starboard bow of the dreadnought. There were no speeches, but a marine band quickened the pulses of the assembled thousands with its music. A wedding march was played as the ship left the ways.
