All the world knows Cobb to be a whole radiant constellation on the diamond, und many of us know him to be a quiet, likable fellow In ? wry-day life, but we must all regret? fully agree that he is In no sense an actor, and probably never will be, so that he owes his producer Infinite gratitude for having given him a part in which ).? might appear u bashful, somewhat uneasy youngster with a shy manner, an unplaced voice of unpluas Ing quality und hands more accustomed strenuous, difficult and skilful work i than to hanging easily and uselessly at ?hlS Sides.

(amount of cotton r kqui red ab road Estimates Made Up by State Department at Request of Governor of Texas, for Use at Conference. II Washington. 1>. C. November 0.? Estimates of American consular oltlccrs abroad of the amount of cotton re? quired by the principal foreign coun? tries for manufacturing purposes dur? ing the cotton year ending September I J. 1912. place the urnount at 12.nl8.irj bales of .*>U0 pounds euch- These esti? mates were called for by the Depart? ment of State, upon request of the Governor oT Texas, who wai ted the In? formation for the Conference of Uov , nrnors at New Orleans. The summary, however. Is Incomplete, as a number of countries were not included, for tho reason that estimates were not re e elved. The department's information shows I the total foreign demands as follows in 500-pound bales: AUBtrla. 830,000; Belgium. 74,800; Canada, I36.UU0: China, 2.300.000; England. 2,851,512 (estimates , for England and Italy refer to de? mands for American cotton only); ! France. 1.410,000; Germany, 1,760.800; it .ly. 6S5;000; Japan, 1.100.0QO; .Mexico, ljso;0(lb; Netherlands, llU.O'.'O; Ku.odu, 825,000; Spain. 392,000; Switzerland. 15.000. Total, 12,518.112. including the normal demands of Greece. Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Norway. British India and all other countries, this amount would be lit creascd by near 2,000,000 bales. England and Italy require about 750,000 bales more than estimates above for their j! total consumption. With these addl ' tions the amount would be approxt ilmately 15.2CS.112 bales. If the Amer I lean consumption were the same as j that In 1910. the total amount of cot ton needed during ihe year would be about 20.000,1)00 bales, 1 compared with 18.321.000 bales consumed by mills throughout tho world In 1010. It Is pointed out. however, thil the State Department's estimate ot tho needs of China (2,:;?o,000 bales) prob? ably Included a large quantity of cot? ton consumed by band looms, and which Is not taken Into account In the Census Bureau's reports of the world's mill consumption, which shows a con? sumption of only 1115.000 bales. The consul-general at Shanghai re? ports that there le a temporary de? mand for American cotton due to tho tact that many domestic producers aro holdlhg back their product, and abo'ut 50.000 bales hdve been purchased from the United States. lie thfnks tho present disturbance in China and the consequent money stress may curtail the consumption. If the present un? rest In China continues, the American ?consul-general at London says, Lanca? shire's chief market for cotton pleco goods will be seriously affected. An element of uncertainly exists in Italy, the consul-general at Genoa re? ports, owing to the war with Turkey, as that country is a large importer of Italian cotton textiles, and prolonga? tion of the war naturally would result in closing that market to Italian milts. II is believed, however, he adds, that the large American cotton crop this ! year will materially reduce the prlco of the raw material, and bring aoout an Increased home demand In Italy which will be sufficient to offset tho I loss of the trade with Turkey. TO-DAY'S ELECTIONS POLITICAL STRAWS As Go the States Which Vote Now, So May Go the Presidential Campaign?Interest Centres in Massachusetts. [Special to The Tlnies-Dlspatdh.] Washington. November 6.?State elections, as well as elections lor Con? gress, are always considered by shrewd politicians as showing 'how the straws lay for the national elections. For this reason, to-morrow's State elec? tions are looked upon as of great Sig? nificance. They are expected by some even to prove more accurate barome? ters of puhlli sentiment than wore the congressional elections a year agj. Last year, when the Democratic party swept the country, there was great dissatisfaction with the Repub? lican administration. It had reuched a high pitch and vented Itself with vigor when the time came to elect a new House of Representatives. This year the country may have cooled oft a . bit, and may view political condi? tions with conservatism. That Is the reason why most politicians look for to-morrow's elections to determine the fate of the two parties next year. Uoth rartlea Confident. Leaders of both parties profess to have complete- confidence in the out rnmc of the elections. The Democrats do not believe that their party will lofe by any reaction on the part of the people, and the Republicans apparently are confident that they will gain by a reaction. Probably the most Interesting of all the State fights Is that In Massachu? setts, where both parties have adopted national Instead of State, issues for their campaigns. It is true that they urn applying these national Issues lo? cally, but they are giving them a larger significance than local Interests would ordinarily Justify. President Taft's tariff vetoes have furnished the real Issue of the cam? paign in the Bay State. The Republl SCOTT'S EMULSION is the near-nature treatment for Consumption. The power it creates, its purity and whole someness are Nature's greatest aid in over? coming disease.

Without high protection, the campaign orators are temps' the citizens. Massa? chusetts cannot hope to prosper. On the other band. Democratic lead? ers, headed by Governor gosa, a can? didate to succeed himself, Insist With equal vehemence that when the Presi? dent recorded his vetoes, he refused to lower a lax which takes money from every pocket In the country and puls it Into tho treasuries of protected mill owners, who arc now making from l? to 300 per cent, on their Investments. Therefore It Is the turlft that tho Massachusetts candidates are clashing over. The tariff was Ihe.lesue which made the Democratic congressional success last yeur possible, that is, the tariff In its relation to the high cost ?Jf living. If Massachusetts should elect a Republican Governor after such a tlzht as Is now In progress. It will undoubtedly mean that uf least one part of the country upproves of the Tuft vetoes, and desires pie pres? ent high protective system to con? tinue. Wilt fte tiund Indication. If Governor Foss is able to secure a re-clcctlon in a State as wedded to high protection as Massachusetts It will be a good indication that the whole country Is prepared to vote against the high protective; policy. In no other States Is the Issue from a national standpoint so clearly drawn as In tho Bay Stato, yet the outcome of the New York, Kentucky and Mary? land will add interest to the situa? tion. In New York the fight Is more local than national. Tammany Is the one big Issue In that campaign for the control of the next Legislature. Against that organization Is pitted n fusion force which may develop enotikh strength to eliminate Murphy from the control of the General Assembly. In Kentucky national political liner are more strongly drawn than In New York. So far the tight Is a straight Democratic assault und a Republican 1 defense. Both a governorship and a senatorshtp are ut stake, and tho re suit will be close. Maryland presents a peculiar situa? tion, due to the alleged frauds found in the recent primary returns. These huvo stirred the peoplo of the State, and since It has been charged these frauds were perpetrated by a corrupt Democratic machine In Baltimore city they may give the governorship to Phillips (Lee Goldsborough, Republi? can candidate. Arthur P. Gorman, a son of tho late Senator of the same name. Is a fighting Democrat, however, as was his father, and he has an? nounced that he will not give up until the last vote Is counted. Should Governor Foss be re-elected in Massachusetts after the territlc fight which has been made to politically de? stroy him. ho will loom bigger on the nntional horizon than he ever has. He was looked upon as a man of unusual power when he. as a Republican, turned Democrat, nnd carried a Republican I district for Congress following a cam? paign In which he had lost the same district while running ns a Republi? can. May Be Presidential Timber. Then the Governor was given tho nomination for his presont ofll.ee hy the Massachusetts Democrats after a convention which split the Democracy of the' Bay State wide open. fn spite of this rupture, he went on campaign? ing, and he gave his political enemies of both parties a big surprise by being elected. This fact gave the New Bng lander national prominence. Now he Is standing for re-election, and Is fac? ing one of the most resourceful politi? cal organizations In the country. A third victory for Foss will elevate him to a position as a presidential pos? sibility nearly as prominent as thai occupied by Governors Wilson, of New Jersey, and Harmon, of Ohio. Gover? nor Fo?s will have won three consecu? tive victories against enormous odd?. and will occupy a posltloti as the lead? ing politics! figure of New England.
