Committee has sufficient money
t0 pay the legitimate expenses of the campaign. It coats money to
maintain an organization. It requires money to pay for printing, post
age, salaries or stenographers and clerk* at headquarters, traveling ex
ttensea of speaker* and numerous other details that go to make the
campaign end successfully. Congress, aa you know, has passed a law
making It unlawful for us to solicit money from corporations. We
Bloat depend ui*m the contributions of lndivldnnl voters. If every Re
publican in this Western DlviFion would contribute one dollar to the

want done we will be able to elect Taft and Sherman. Will you help?

This has given rise to fears that the
Turco-iiulgarian negotiations looking
to a settlement of the trouble that has
arisen from Bulgaria's sudden dec
laration of independence have become
futile but the government Insists
that these negotiations have not been

talt's New fork Majority*
Those people, east and west, wTio
are looking anxiously for political
signs should not miss one of the
largest significance regarding the re
sult in the Empire State of New York.
Upper Manhattan Island—that Is, the
upper part of the old city of New
York—which Is mainly Republican,
shows a large increase of registration,
while those sections of the lower part
of the city, from which Tammany
draws its fraudulent majorities, shows
an equally significant decrease. While
the increase in upper New York proves
that the intelligent population of that
section is rallying with greater ear
nestness than ever to the supiort of
Taft and Sherman and of a Republic
an administration in the Interest of ail
that tends to make the country pros
perous, the decreased registration
from the haunts of Tammany thugs
and repeaters Indicates that the Re
publican vote Is not to be offset this
year by fraudulent Democratic ballots.
It is and has been for years a crying
shame that the vote of the great and
often pivotal state of New York should
be so largely affected by ballot box
stuffers, who appear to have been, ac
cording to sworn evidence In recent
cases, in the pay of politicians closely
connected with Democratic local lead
ership and acting in the interest of
Democratic candidates. Tbe Republic
an legislature of New York has sought
to remedy this wrong by surrounding
registration with certain safeguards
which do not hamper the honest voter,
no matter how Illiterate or poor he
may be, but which are calculated to
deter the repeater and ballot box
stuffer from going to the polls. The
fact that thousands have been afraid
to face the test is proof of the extent
to which fraud has figured In New
York city elections In the past and Is
also an assurance, along with increas
ed Republican registration, that the
majority for Taft and Sherman In the
Empire State will exceed considerably
the conservative estimates made ear
lier In the campaign. -^5r

Turkish View of Negotiatione With
Constantinople, Oct. 24.—The en

the situation arising from Bulgaria's
declaration of independence have left
Constantinople for Sofia, where they
will report, the result of their conver

of some divergence of views it Is ex
pected that official negotiations be

Merger of All Rio Grande Lines Be
Denver, Oct. 24.—The merger of all
the lines of the Denver and Rio
Grande railroad was made effective
by the filing of a mortgage for $150,
000,000. This mortgage secures a new
issue of bonds. The sum of $90,000,
000 will be used for refunding out
standing indebtedness, $25,000,000 to
aid in the construction of the Western
Facific railroad, now building from
Salt Lake to the Pacific coast, and the
remainder for extension of old and
construction of new lines.
Coincident with the filing of the
mortgage came the dental of the re
port that E. H. Harrlman would as
sume control of the Western Pacific
road. The statement was made that
the Rio Grande owns two-thirds of the
Western Pacific stock and that it
would be impossible for Mr. Harrlman
to take over the Western Pacific with

Cleveland People Refuse to Approve

Cleveland, Oct. 24.—Complete re
turns from every precinct in the city
in the referendum election show that
tl)e so calteil Security Street railway
fianrhise was defeated by the narrow
margin of S05 votes. The total num
ber of votes cast was 75,893, with 37,
644 in favor of the franchise and 38,
249 against it. As -a result of the
failure of the people to approve the
grant fhe entire street railway sys
tun of th* city will revert to the
Cleveland Railway company.
The defeat of the franchise was
doubtless brought about by what was
held to be Ihc inadequate and-unsat
