0 man Mack today authorized a state
0 ment in which he claimed the elec
tion of William J Bryan ba land
elide Mr Mack announced that hi
reports showed Bryan would receive
nt least oOl electoral votes or 59
more than Is necessary for a choice
In his forecast ne said in part
Rumblings and thunder of the Bryan
landslide In the wet are already be
0 ing heard In the eastern ftates and
today I can confidently predict tho
d election of Mr raJIThat land
elide in the west will extend to the
shores of the Atlantic It means the
democratic ticket will carry every
doubtful state In this section and in
troc fibbed republican districts the
m ortJes of that party in recent
years will be reiuced to a minimum
Basing my forecast on most conserv
ative lines in view of optimistic re
ports I have received from all sec
F tions of the country I figure Bryan
will have at least 301 electoral votes
i or 59 more than is necessary for a
7 choice This comfortable majority
will Do increased rather than decreas
ed when the vote Is counted
Besides the solid south Mack says
Bryan will carry New York New Jer
