I NEW YORK. Nov. 6 The Ameri
lean voters wilt sav tomorrow who
■ will b«* the next president of the l'tiit
i'ci siatej:, dictate who shall compose
the senate ami choose the members
of the house of representatives.
Viewing the situation today, twen
ty-four hours In advance of tin* bat
!'e of ballots, and with claims from
both democrats ami ' republicans
cock-sure of victory It appears that
tiie people of New York, Illinois,
Ohio and Indiana will come the
nearest to holding the balance of
power. Both sides claim these
Their total vote in the electoral
I college is 113—nearly 43 per cent
i of the 266 necessary to a choice.
The strictest neutrals—or ever
ihe strongest republicans, for that
matter—concede that the democrats
will carry the "solid Houth"—a
Mock of 136 votes. This comprises
the electoral vote of Virginia, North
and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi. Louisiana,
TcXus, Arkansas, Tennessee and Ok
lahoma. It doesn’t include Kentucky
and Missouri. Heretofore they have
been classified as component parts
of the solid south, nnd this year they
ere claimed by the democrats to still
be in that section, but they are ad
judged by the republicans as being
debatable ground.
In the presidential rare Judge
Hughes starts off with his opponent
given a handicap of 130 votes, but
be also has been granted by the
democrats a handicap for scratch of
10 vote3 in the electoral college.
These votes are in Main|>, New
Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, i
Pennsylvania and Iowa. That leaves j
Wilson a net handicap of Cf> shares !
in the electoral , but if his cataclysm j
holds tomorrow the strictest neu- |
trals admit that the 113 votes of the j
“tig four’’ states will he the real
turning point of the election. The
democrats claim all four; so do the
In Illinois lies the real enigma In |
close on to 800,000 new women’s
votes. Because they are new in the
exercise of their franchise political
l.ronostieators are exceedingly shy
in making'any claims on the Sucker
In New York state, with forty-five
big votes in the electoral college,
the problem the republicans face
is to keep the New York City nor
mal democratic majority down and
at the same time boost up the normal
republican upstate majority to the
highest point.
Publicly the last minute claims
Republican—Judge Hughes will
win in Now York by 100,000 to 150,
Democrat—Wilson will win the
state by at least 100,000.
Indiana and Ohio have been stren
uous battle grounds of the cam
paign. The air has been filled with
the oratory, red fire, debate, charges
and counter charges. The republicans
want to make a clean sweep in In
diana because two senators are up
for election in that state.
National Democratic Chairman Mc
Cormick is authority for the declara
tion that the republicans haVe con
ceded the loss of Ohio.
