offices as being "satisfactory” to the

here from Democratic leaders. But the
feeling among those in Democratic
circles is that this statement will have
little or no effect upon the outcome
of the election and that all the Demo

tremendous majorities.

Raleigh, Nov. 3.- -The campaign
speeches being made by Governor O.
Max Gardner are doing more to clinch
to campaign and convince those who
s o far have been more or leas in doubt
tibout the .soundness of the Demo
cratic doctrines, both national and
State, than of any of the other speak
ers, according to the hulk of opinion
here. This is because Governor Gard
ner is talking hal’d, cold facts rather
than generalities and is bringing these
facts down to the counties and com

Protest Against
Wage Cut and City

Berlin. Nov. 3.—(API-The main
transportation system of Berlin- the
world's third largest city—was paraiz
ed today by strikers against wage
cuts and affecting 23,000 workers.
Only the state operated Stadthahn,
a single link in the vast system, was
running. Asa result, thousands of
early rising Berliners were forced to
brave a driving rain to get to work.
Some preferred to chase taxicabs.
Others dashed for the nearest Stad
thahn station.
The strike was called at 5 a. m.. and
by 7 a. m. the police had taken over
all loading points on bus. street car,
subway and elevated lines as a pre
caution against disorder.
The police guard was set up after
a few of the conveyances normally
used to carry transport employees io
work had ventured out, only to be met
by a barrage of stones from strike
sympathizers. Three men were arrest
ed. ; v ; :
Meanwhile police were placed at
transport terminals and turned away
those who appeared for duty. Their
numbers were augmented at some ter
minals by groups us unemployed
seeking work.
The tie-up was complete despite the
fact that transport workers failed to
vote the required three-fourths ma
jority for a walk-out in protest against
the latest wage cut.

that at least tnree of its six states,

To be sure, the whole area is nor

Maine went Democratic, on its early
state election, no longer ago than last
September.
As a member of the organization
at Jeffersonian national headquarters
remarked to me. “There certainly is
no reason why the Pine Tree state

mind ina mere matter of seven or
eight weeks. Why assume that it
has.”
Why indeed? Nevertheless it gen
erally is assumed that it has.
Massachusetts and Rhode Island are
different.
They went Democratic four year#
ago mainly because of their devotion
to A1 Smith personally; partly because
they are very wet and A1 is a wet.

Raleigh. Nov. 3.—Long insensible to
the fact that there wa-s a ’’panic,” the
“panic" has at last seized President
Hoover. Now. with his knees shaking
and his teeth chattering, he is trying
to pass his own fear and the fear of
his fellow Republicans on to the rest
of the country and to make it believe
that unless he and his panic-makers
are restored to power that there will
be a worse “panic” and that “grass
will grow in the streets of hundreds
of cities.”
This is the way most of the Demo- 1
eralic leaders here sum up Mr. Hoov
er’s most recent speeches and the
psychology he evidenced in Ehem. But
without exception they see in these
speeches only the personal fear and
desperation of Mr. Hoover that he will
not be re-eheted -the frantic efforts
of a drowning man about to be suck
