Chicago, Nov. 5— Congressman Bob' cock, chairman of the repnblicno con gressional campaign committee, gave to the Associated Prêta tonight the fotlow ing statement covering the expectations of the republicans At to the next hone»; The congressional campaign Ip» reached a paint where the only question is the sise of the republican majority. In the statement given to the press on the 23th, J said the republican membership would not be lese than 187. This num ber I considered at the time wne sure be yond any reasonable doubt, Since then conditions have continued to improro. The Croker-Jones advice to the demo crats suggesting fraud by the republicans has done us much good, for no one can point to a single instance where n repub lican member has been elected by fraud either in the rotes cast or in the count after they were cast; while the majority of the democratic representation in the house comes from districts where the re publican vote ia driven from the poll* by the shot gun, or if in tuny caps it 1* east, it is counted for the democratic candidate and the will of the people defeated. Thin cry or wolf coming from the (tarty that stands sponsor for fraud of the worst type will be resented at the poll». And I have every reason to believe that folly 2oo republicans will be elected to the Fifty-seventh congress. (Signed) J. w. Babcock. Rioting tt Brazil.
