Almost Universal Scntimcnt
That Harding Has No
Hope Now is That Roosevelt's
Speech Will Do Much
Cleveland, Ohio, November 4.?All
Republlcans horeabouts are hopeful
?that Theodore Roosevelt's speech ln
Cleveland to-morrow nlght wlll do a
whole lot of good. The hammering j
the colohel has been gettlng ln New
York ahd tlie nssorted charges that
have been made against hlm by Re?
publlcans and Demociats allke have not
yot had any apparent effect out thls
way. Certalnly he is stlll much of a
popular idol.
Wonder Whnt He Wlll Sny.
Hls utterances to-morrow nlght,
whatever they turn out to be, wlll have,
evosythlng lndicntes. a certaln effect
But Republican leaders would be bet?
ter "satlsfied if they were certaln of
what Colonei Roosevelt is golng to
say. They don't expect him to pralse
Harding- to the sltles nor to say any?
thlng deflnltely or enthusiastlcally of
the achievements of Taft other than
he has done during his many campalgn
addresses ln New York. Nor do they
cXpect hlm to touch on the subject Of
presldential posslbllities ln 1012 and
the effect of tho voto in thls State next
Tuesday on the selection of tho party
standard bearers two years hence.
So they sort of flgure out that Mr.
Roosevelt wlll content himself wlth a
broadsldo against Governor Judson
Harmon and an appeal to the rank and
ftlfi of the party to be regular and to
push tho tlcket through. But there
seems to be a decided feeling among
both Republlcans and Democrats ln
thla section of the State that Warren
6. Harding has no chnnce to be elected
Governor. The splendld flght he has
made against big odds ls appreclaied
to tho full, but lt Isn't suggested by
tho blg men of elther party that he
has more than a gambler's chance of
pulllng through. At that, however, the
bettlng estlmato of Harmon's majority
has dropped from anythlng over 100,000
to between 20,000 and 30,000.
I talked to-day wlth a large manu
facturer of Cleveland, a Republican,
who, although he ls not one of tho
party chiefs, has a certaln amount of
Influence. Ho has always been Regu?
lar, and intends to vote the Republican
tlcket thls year wlthout a scratch.
"About 60 per cent. of tho men in
my place are Republlcans," said he.
"Yet I happened to see the other day
a pool on majorlties they wero gettlng
up at a dollar a gueas.
"The drift of oplnlon on the reault next
Tuesday waa lndlcated by tho fact thal
alxty-two men had plcked Harmon to wln
by anywhere from 1S.0CO lo $&,</Q0, whlle only
three men In tho place had taken a chance
on Harding. The hlghcat gueaa on hla ma?
jority waa 6.0C0."
After leaving- thls buslness man I aaw
another "majority pool" ln one of the
Cleveland newanaper offlceg. The percen
lagea ran about the aame.
Ono of the most optlmlatic of Cleveland
