DEMOCRATS UNDER BIG HANDICAP Some Of the Democ ratic leaders arc coming emphatically to the opinion that, the initial advantage in thin campaign lies with the M puiiiicnu puny. ' . The most capable Democratic statistician can figure no more than 202 votes in the Electoral College which by any possibility, near or remote, can be claimed for Wilson; while the same Democratic lead pencil sets down 24) electoral votes as reasonably certain for Hughes. A majority of the Electoral College, is 2(i(i votes. According to these Democratic figures, therefore, Wilson must win M votes from States which the Democrats class as doubtful, whereas Hughes needs only IS from the same source. The four States which the Democrats look upon as doubtful and wherein they purpose to consentrate their heavy fighting during this campaign are New York, with 4." electoral votes; Indiana with 16) New Jersey with 14; and ( 'oiinect icuta with seven. To elect Wilson, under these conditions, requires that he carry three of these States and one of the three must be New York whereas Hughes can win by carrying New York alone or by carrying any combination of two out of the other three. In studying the problem, the tigurcs of the two preceding Presi dential elections are most interesting. Xew York in 1908 wave Taft 870,(100 votes, Bryan getting 667, 000. In 1913 Wilson had 665,000, and th unbilled Taft and Roose velt strength was 845,000. , In 1908 Indiana was carried by Taft against Bryan by 348,000 to 338000. In 1912 the Hoooier Democrats gave Wilson 281,000 votes to 813,000 polled for Taft and Rooaevell together. New Jersey gave Bryan, in 1908, 181,000; and to Tat't 165,000 Four years later Wilson received home support of 178,000, while Taft and Roosevelt together had 234,000. Connecticut in 1908 was carried by Taft to the tune of 119,000 to 68,000. In 1911 Wilson got 178,000, while Taft and Roosevelt to gether had 284,000. In other words, in the four States which Democratic soothsayers count as "doubtful," there is only one Connecticut where Wilson received more votes in 1912 than Hryan had in 1908; and in not one of these four States was the combined Taft and Roosevelt vote of 1912 as great as that which Taft received alone in 1908. That is to say, united Republicanism was thousands of vote." stronger in 1908 than the total vote of divided Republicanism in 1912; while Wilson was not as good a vote-getter as Bryan showed himself. To put it exactly as the figures show, Wilson was 67.000 weaker than Bryan, while there were 101,000 more men who voted for Taft in 1908 than voted for Taft and Roosevelt together in 1912 These 101,000 Republicans who were disgusted with the inter nal party warfare of 1912 and who refused to vote at all. will be call ed to the polls this yeai by the reunion of the Republican elements Thus, in the four States which Democrats admit to be doubtful, Mr Wilson confronts the necessity of making up the (17,000 votes which constitute the Bryan excess of 1908 as compared with the Wilson vote of 1912, aud at the same time he must overcome the Republican re serve of 101,000 which is disclosed by the figures of the two elec tions. His handicap, therefore, is 168.000 In the race for the 81 elec toral votes which these four "doubtful" States will have to give. He can never overcome that handicap. fYfcS.TOtfr FocTbML FWHT?

July 18 Field Mar shal vim HindenburK, Commander of the northern group of Gorman armies in the Itusslan theater, 1b holding on the west front a couctl of war with the Kaiser and General von Falken hayn. Chief of the German General Staff. The genius of the German army has been called upon to devise supreme measures for cheeking the allies' of fensive on the western front, which is menacing important junction points of strategic railways whose possession is necessary if the Germans are to pre vent a general retirement. The same dispatch from Berlin adds that Field Marshal von Hindenburg probably will be put In supreme com mand of all the German and Austro- Huugarian troops on the eastern front. Following up their successes near nazentin-le-Petit and Ixingueval. where they have driven close to the third line of German defense on the Albert I'lateaus, the British now have carried out a new thrust forward north of Ovillers. making substantial progress along a front of more than a half mile. Menace for (ierniaiis The British drive was launched near the left flank of the line active In the present offensive southeast of Thiep val, and, if followed up, seems likely to threaten seriously the strongly held Cerman position at i'ozieres, to the east. The expected counter attacks of the Germans in efforts to recapture ground recently won by the allies in the Somme offensive have materialized along the front occupied by the French south of the Somme. In an attack on the French lines be tween l.;i Maisonette and Biaches the Germans succeeded in regaining terri tory along the canal east of Biaches Their assault on i.a Maisonnette It self, a costly operation, was a failure, says a Paris bulletin. In the Verdun region there has been further activity. The French fire broke up a German raid on Hill 304, west of the Meuse, while grenade fighting on the eastern bank of the river resulted In advantage to the French, according to the Paris report. Belgian troops have won an Impor tant success In German Bast Africa, dispersing a German force near l.ak. Victoria and reaching at two points the ahore of the lake In the northern part of the colony.

On Salonlki Front Official advices received from Salon Iki under date of Monday Bay that cannonading Is In progress along the entire Salonlki front. Allied aeroplanes burned part of the Bulgarian crops In the region of Monastir," the Paris statement says 'There is cannonading along the whole front.' The Information given out by the French authorities In regard to the sit nation at Salonlki is not sufficiently explicit to indicate whether the en tente allies are preparing an offensive movement such as Would be preceded by a general bombardment. A drive from the Salonlki front has been pre dieted for some time. I km an some 130,000 Serbian troops on this front, several hundred thousand French and British soldiers It is generally understood the allies have 600.000 or more men available for a campaign.
