WILSON HOLDS LEAD New York Herald Poll of States Reaches 205,332 Votes-Wilson, 86,421; Roosevelt, 60,295; Taft, 45,501 Fourth Nation-Wide Preliminary Forecast Indicates New Jersey Governor is First in Twenty-Six States, Pro gressives in Five and the President in Two. Old National Bank Union City, Tennessee A Few Suggestions HOW "DRIFT" IS CHANGING. The drift of sentiment indicated by the Herald's test votes, taking the total number cast throughout the country, shows that Mr. Taft is increasing his percentage, Mr. Roosevelt is losing slightly and Governor Wilson is holding his own and leading. It also shows that the combined vote of his opponents exceeds that of Governor Wilson.

President Taft has made marked advances in some sections of the Far West. Ho has made further gains in Pennsylvania. The Republicans iu several States have replaced indifference with activity and are making a real campaign for their nominee. The sudden reversal of form on the part of organization managers has greatly stiffened up the Taft men and given them new hope. Mr. Roosevelt has made gains in Illinois, where ho leads and where he has developed much strength. He is holding his own in practically all the States where he led last week. Governor Wilson has gained also, but on the whole, has just about held his own. This is accounted for by the theory that he had a "flying start" and could not be expected to increase his lead. Interesting changes iu the situation are shown by the Herald's figures. Since the tables were published last more than 50,000 new votes have been in corporated in the computations, making a grand total of 205,332 ballots thus far cast. They represent every class of voter in every part of the country. Of this number President Taft has received 45,501, Mr. Roosevelt 00,295, Governor Wilson 86,421 and Mr. Debs 13,115.

Demo crats in Tennessee who heretofore, an with some good reason, have had cause to suspect that Benton. McMillin, the Democratic nominee for Governor, was in sympathy with the ultra regular ele ment which is supporting former -Gov. Patterson for the United States Senate, may now rest in peace. Gov. McMil lin has declared from .a half dozen stumps in the last few days that he has no alliances, and while such declarations will not wipe out all the old feeling, it is certain to put the majority of the silent Democrats in a better frame of iiid.

In polls made in thirty-three States Governor Wilson led in twenty-six, Mr. Roosevelt in five and the President in two Utah and Wyoming. The four in which Mr. Roosevelt took the lead are Illinois, Michigan, Idaho and Washington. Governor Wilson leads in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Ohio, Indi ana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota, New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado. The Southern States are virtually conceded by the Republicans to the Dem ocrats and no test votes have been taken there. As things now stand the Democrats are confident they will elect their nomi nee. The Republicans are more hopeful than they have been at any time, and are saying that the little zephyrs out -in the Far West, in Illinois and Pennsyl vania, in some of the New England States and in some parts of the Middle West are the beginning of the big blast which they say is likely to come to sweep their nominee into the White House. The Roosevelt leaders are not confident of success, but they express the belief that they have a good fighting chance. to The Commercial, One Dollar a Year Fun All the Time. Messrs. Wagenhals & Kemper will present their New York Astor Theatre ! Company at Reynolds Theatre Thurs day night, Oct. 31, iu the comedy, "Seven Days," by Mary Roberts Rine liart and Avery Hopwood, which comes from a third year on Broadway. Said the New York Tribune of "Seven Days": "It is screamingly funny. The world loves laughter. At 'Seven Days' it can laugh till it is weary." There it is that's the reason for the ..... enormous popularity of this comedy laughter, roars of it, every fraction of a second. And it is laughter of which nobody will be ashamed. "Seven Days" is as clean as it is amusing. It makes everybody laugh every minute. One proof of its superiority is its power to entertain more thoroughly a second i r a third time than the first. There r- apprehension, pretense, starvation, vac cination, and it goes from drawing room to basement and roof, and it lasts through the funniest seven days imagin able. Keep the night open for "Seven Days" and lay in a stock of laughter that will last many times seven days.

"The question of voting in the Novem ber primary is one that should be left to the conscience of the individual voter, " he replied. IMPROPER PRIMARY XOT HlXDIXti. "Now," he was further pressed by the same interrogator, "do you believe that the next Legislature should support the nominees of the November primary?" "That depends upon whether the pri mary is conducted in a proper man ner," replied Gov. McMillin, "but," he added with enthusiasm, "I want to say here and now that I am running in the interest solely of Benton McMillin for Governor, and I have no alliances with any man born of woman." It is needless to say that this an nouncement, straight from the shoulder, did much to brave the fury of the Pat terson tide. The Fatterson Democrats, who have been watchful for weeks lest Gov. McMillin should, as they say, pull away from them, declare that the Gov ernor's answer pleased them, because thousands of good Democrats all over the State are inclined to the same view expressed by McMillin, and because, they insist, Patterson is already the nominee of the primary without opposi tion. Reports from all over the State ap pear to be that Democrats are falling in line, and while it is not probable that the old time majority will usher a Democratic administration into office in January, it is felt here that Gov. Hooper will be defeated, and that with com parative ease. - . Miss Mary Louise Baxter, sister of Jere Baxter, builder of the Tennessee Central Railroad, and John D.

The Disciples of Christ have an nounced their intention to raise $3,000, -000 for missions. Nearly one-third of the amount is declared to be in sight. One contribution of 150,000 has been received.

In order to keep in closer touch with the situation at Vera Cruz, where Gen. Felix Diaz has started a revolt against the Mexican Government, the cruiser Tacoma was ordered to proceed north to Tampico. Multitudes under umbrellas heard Gov. Wilson in car-platform speeches through West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. The only address of the day, at Pittsburg, closed the tour. He refrained from discussing the third party or its leader out of a deference to Col. Roosevelt, devoting himself to tariff wrongs and trust rule. Elmer E. Dover, secretary of the Re publican Committee in 1904, placed in evidence before the investigating com mittee a list of campaign contributions totaling $2,280,018. Medill McCoruiick caused a commotion and protest when he used the language "Character as sassins and liars like Mr. Hilles," and the reference was espunged from the record. H ow s This?
