LOOKS GOOD FOR TEDDY THE TIDE IN NEW YORK TURN ED IN REPUBLICAN FAVOR HERRICK WINS THE LEAD Roosevelt' Odds are Five to One A Staff Correspondent's Estimate of the Result. s Chicago, October 28. Raymond Iattersou, staff correspondent of the Tribune, telegraphing to his paper from New York yesterday, says: Within the last three weeks there has been an extraordinary set in the tide of public opinion toward the Re publican State and national caridK dates. At the present time the out-' look is that the chances favor Roose velt carrying New York State by a large majority and he will in all por bability pull through Lieutenant Governor Higgins, the Republican candidate for governor. About thirty days ago the political situation in New York State was en tirely different. Then it was a toss up whether Roosevet eould carry his own State, not because of a nyt weak ness of his own, but because of the revolt in the Republican ranks against Odellism. Since then Judge Parker himself has steadily lost ground, not because of any new po sition of his own party, but' because of his demonstration of his own in capacity to measure up to the sta ture of a presidential candidate. All of Judge Parker's, recent speeches have hurt him even uiore here in New York State than in the rest of the eountry. At the same time D. Cady Herrick, the Democrat ic candidate for governor, has drop ped back even more rapidly., than Parker. Tammany ;neii who are on the in side do not claim any more than from 80,000 to 00,000 plurality in ("'renter New York. If they do not get much more than this, Parker will be hope lessly beaten. : Herrick Will Run Ahead. ' Tammany polls show Herrick will run ahead in Greater New York to the extent, perhaps, of 20,000 votes.' This is supposed to be the measure of the general Republican dissatisfac tion in Brooklyn. "Timmy" Wood ruff, who was beaten for governor by the orders of Odell, has taken his coat off for the State ticket and is -pen to no .suspicion of disloyalty. Hundreds, and possibly thousand;?, of Brooklyn Republicans, however, have taken the matter so easily, and they are disposed to punish Odell by voting for Roosevelt and Herrick, and it Is this sentiment which has in duced Tammany forecasters to es timate that Herrick will run ahead of Parker in Greater New York by about 20,000 votes. Frank Hall, employed at the.Dillej & MeGuire Lawnmower factory, had the index finger of his left hand severely crushed in a piece of ma chinerj yeslerda' afternoon.

OH RATLIFF OWNER OF THE RIG He Followed the Rig to Fifteenth Later Shot at in Eaton One of the most daring horse rob beries which has occurred in this city in years-, occurred last evening, when an unknown man took posses sion of the horse and phateon beong ing to Omer Ratlff. Mr. Ratliff had Kief't his horse tied in Elm Place and wasnot gone from the vehicle over three minutes and was greatly sur prised to find it gone when he re turned. The police were at once no tified and Superintendent A Gormon telephoned the officers of the towns nearby. The local officers traced the horse as far as Glen Miller park and from that fact the general supposi tion was that the thief was making for some Ohio town, probably Eaton. The Eaton marshal was notified and told to keep a close watch for the man with the rig.

The men all seem to be in the best of condi tion and the long ride from Craw fordsville did not seem to tire them. Twenty one came up from Wbash, but a number of them are rooters. The men will be given light signal practice this morning and then will rest for the game this afternoon. The members of the team believe that they will win but none of them have the trait which is so detrimental to foot ball, that of overconfidence.

EASTERN WOMEN CHAFF LAIIDIS BECAUSE HE IS A BACHELOR -.- Congressman'' Fred Laiulis of Logansport, in his various politi cal pilgrimages over the country, has found it a difficult task to conceal the fact that he is unmarried. This fact generally precedes him and in addition to his distinction of being the youngest member of -congress, generally has the effect of drawing many hearers of the fair sex. His trip down east last week was no exception to the rule, ivs the'-following: from the Newark, N. J. Advertiser will show: "Three thousand persons crowded in and around the Roosevelt Riding Academy, in Rooseville avenue, to hear a ringing address by Congressman Frederick Landis, who represents the Eleventh district of Indiana of the house of representatives. A rough platform had been built in the western endof the great tan bark arena and chairs were placed in circles about that Both of the capacious galleries were filled and every box was occupied. There were several hundred wom en in the large gathering and none was more enthusiastic than they when the speaker touched upon pleasing points. They eeeered and waved small flags from time to time. When the meeting adjourn ed Congressman Landis was forced to leave the platform and grasp the hands of the fair ones and their escorts. Somehow it leaked out that the fair handsome Hoosisr statesman, the youngest man in congress, was a bachelor, and he was chaffed in a good-natured way in typical American style ''- -.v STOLEN Sttreet - The Occupant of the Rig Was The Latest Report. Officer IcDonald saw the vehicle coming'and shouted for the driver to stop -and when the driver did not stop the officer shot at him three times, but that did not stop him. The noise of the firing collected a small crowd and they gave chase, but were unable to catch him. He was headed J toward Winchester, Ohio, and soon as a conveyance could be procured Officer McDonald started after .him. The horse is described as a sorrel mare' and has white hind feet.
