PREDICTION OF VICTORY .
"Things couldn't be In better, shape
than they . are," said Johnson enthusi
astically yesterday afternoon- "I'm feel-
Ing fit for any kind of trip and for all
the speech making that can be crowded
into the time between now and election.
Everything seems to point to the big
gest kind of a victory in November and
I am not -worrying a bit. There Is a
harmonious feeling . all over the | state
and I am looking forward to big meet
ings wherever I 'go and to the display
of the best of feeling."
Johnson said that he had given -no
particular thought to \u25a0 the preparation
of any speeches, but would follow gen
erally the lines he adopted, in the pri
mary campaign. He .will, not .'stop .this
time, however, with a discussion rela
tive to eliminating. the Southern Pacific

ment, but will go at length; into ; mat
ters of constructive change and reform
which are embodied in the republican
state platform.//./;/

material for powerful campaign speak
ing. The document is one of the most
