Special to the Daily Tribune. Helena, Oct. 31.—Election of the con gressional candidates of the Republican party in Montana was predicted Sunday by Lester Lob le. chairman of the Mon- 1 tana Democratic club, an independent j organization composed of Democrats ! ■who refused to recognize the Nonparti san-Labor league candidates who cap- ; tured Democratic party nominations at the August primaries. "The great majority of the loyal Democrats of Montana will repudiate at the polls on November 2 the non descript radical crowd which seized the | standard of the Democratic party by trickery in the primary nominating elec tion," Mr. Loble said. "Basing my belief on reports which have come in from independent Demo cratic clubs in all parts of Montana, I will predict a majority of at least 15,000 for the Republican state ticket. We expect the majority to be 20.000. The ■wonderful reception accorded by the (roters to Senator Henry L. Myers and »ur other speakers convince me that a vast majority of the members of our party will place patriotism above party pâme and vote to save Montana from fhe menace of state socialism or worse. Senator Dixon will be the next gov ernor of Montana and his fellow mem bers on the Republican state ticket will pe elected with him. We assume that the voters will vote their national ticket find that Cox and Roosevelt will carry the state by a substantial majority."

Vienna, Oct. 31.—The first touch of winter has re-awakened Vienna and other Austrian eiries to the food and fuel situation, which President Zeitz described to The Associated Press as "most unfavorable." Herr Zeitz said that the "situation is generally worse than last year.'' While various charities are doing much to relieve conditions, the Amer ican child feeding fund, with its per fected organization and two years' ex perience, novV is feeding daily 300,000 children under sixteen years of age and also supplying 100,000 children with overcoats, shoes, stockings, and flannel underwear. The Austrian government is co-oper ating with the fund. Only four Amér icains are on 'he executive staff while there are 12,000 Austrains in the per sonnel of The fund, half of them volun teers. Inasmneh as Austria takes over all the expenditure for freight and ware houses when American relief supplies reached European ports, it is said virtu ally 100 per cent, of the money contrib uted in the United States goes into ac tual relief. Some idea of the extent of the work of the relief association may be gained by the fact that. 68,000,000 free meals have been distributed to undernourished Austrian children in 10 months. Velvet, masks were much worn by ladies of the court of Queen Elizabeth.

The shipments from country ele vators have improved because of better railroad conditions, the northwest road* having secured a larger percentage of their boxcar ownership on September 1 than on August 1. The percent ages respectively are 86.Ü per cent and 84.4 per cent.
