MARYIjAXD ISSUE COMPLICATED
Democratic Differences Give Hope
of Republican Success.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 30. (Special.) A
hot campaign has just closed. In which
all state offices, all members of the
lower House of the Legislature and half
the Btate Senate are involved. Except
the Governorship, it is admitted by
competent and impartial observers that
the Democrats will win, most likely by
fair majorities, the state being norm
ally Democratic by from 15,000 to 20,
000. The Governorship result Is compli
cated by the fact that the Democratic
candidate. State Controller Emerson C.
Harrington, was the victor only after
a peculiarly bitter primary fight. The
Republicans are, therefore, relying for
victory largely upon Democratic fac
tional differences, as they won the last
Gubernatorial election, when the pres
ent Incumbent. Governor Goldsborough,
was chosen, even while the rest of the
state ticket then went Democratic.
National issues are largely obscured
by state affairs, although the Demo
crats are appealing for an indorsement
of the National Administration. The
probabilities appear to be that Mr. Har
rington will win by from 10.000 to 15,
000 over Ovington E. Weller. Republi
can, and that the rest of the Democratic
state ticket will be elected by some
what larger pluralities. The only other
candidate is George R. Gorsuch, Prohi
bitionist. Several constitutional amendments
are to be determined.
KENTUCKY HAS FULL TICKET
Radically "Dry" Democrats Contrib
ute to Factional Fight.
LOUISVILLE. Oct. 81. (Special.)
The end of a bitter campaign finds the
probabilities favoring a Democratic
victory, despite a hard factional fight,
the defection of one section of the
party and the opposition of the more
radical "dry" Democrats. The Demi
cratic nominee is ex-Representative
Stanley, representing the conservative
element of the Democratic party. He
has taken a stand for local option and
against county option and state-wide
Were it not for the fact that the
straight-out Prohibitionists were un
successful in both party primaries, the
election might decide the wet and dry
Issue, admittedly the most acute that
confronts the Kentucky electorate.
The best informed ante-election
prophets figure Stanley to defeat Ed
win P. Morrow, Republican, by from
20.000 to 25.000. while the rest of the
Democratic ticket will probably win
by a somewhat larger plurality.
A complete set of state officials, all
of the Lower House of the Legisla
ture ana nan tne state Senate, are
also to be chosen.
NEW CONSTITUTION IS UP
New York Also to Vote on Suffrage
and Minor Candidates.
NEW YORK, Oct. 31. (Special.)
The question of the adoption or re
jection of the new state constitution,
drawn by the late constitutional con
vention, presided over by Former Sena
tor Elihu Root, dwarfs all other Issues
in the New York election this year, al
though three members of Congress,
one to succeed a deceased Democrat,
and two to succeed dead Republicans,
and several local officials are also to
In a general -way the Republicans
favor the constitution and the Demo
crats oppose it, although party lines
have not been rigidly drawn, a number
of Republican leaders opposing the in
strument, while many Democrats of
prominence support it, Tammany and
the labor Interests are bitter in their
opposition to the constitution, but it
is believed that it will be adopted by
a close vote.
In the congressional districts there
appears little question that Bertrand
H. Snell. Republican, will be chosen
to succeed the late Edwin A. Merritt
and that Norman S. Gould. Republican
Progressive, will be victorious in the
district formerly represented by the
late Sereno E. Payne, former Republi
can House floor leader. The Twenty
third district, formerly represented by
the late Joseph A. Goulden, Democrat,
is doubtful. This district is normally
close, with Republican leanings, and it
was the scene of a hard Democratic
primary fight. Ex-Representative Ben
nett is the Republican nominee. He
professes confidence in victory; so does
Elsworth J. Healy, Democrat. Bennett,
it is thought, has slightly the better
Woman's -suffrage is also an Issue,
and the women profess supreme con
fidence. Although several newspaper
polls in this city give them a decided
advantage, it is not believed that they
will carry the state this time. The
city appears dsuttful, with the odds
against the women because of the op
position of the strong political organi
zations, while "upstate" there seems
little doubt that there will be a heavy
vote against them.
A complete Assembly of 150 members
and eleven Supreme Court judges are
also to be elected, and In this city there
is a bitter fight for the district attor
neyship between District Attorney Per
kins, Republican Incumbent, and Judge
Swan. Democrat. The result will prob
ably be close, with Swan thought to
have slightly the better chance.

suffrage question being out of the way,
there remains only the choosing of a
new lower legislative house and six
State Senators. The campaign has been
exceedingly quiet, as there are no
questions of political or state-wide im
portance to be determined.
PENNSYLVANIA ISSUES LOCAL
Suffrage Only Pending of State
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 30. (Special.)

state-wide fight for suffrage, which is
being waged by the women. Apparent,

COLUMBUS, O., Oct. SI. (Special.)
The wet and dry question is monopo

exclusion of almost everything else.
There is a hard battle, in which both
sides have strained every effort for
victory. For the past week William
J. Bryan has been touring the state
in a special train In the dry interest,
and has spoken In 42 counties.
Although he made a strong impres
sion, it is not believed that the pro

There are also other state questions

HIGH WHITNEY MUCH WANTED
Montana, Idaho and Wyoming Have
Murder and Robbery Charges.
Hugh Whitney, bank and train rob
ber and killer, is wanted in Montana
for the holdup and robbery of a sa
loonkeeper at Moneida in the Summer
of 1911. the killing a few days later
of a Short Line Railroad conductor
and the later supposed murder of his
companion in crime, in order to more
surely make his escape from pursuing
posses. Wyoming and Idaho also are
anxious to locate Whitney, as he is
wanted in both states for robbery and
murder. He is believed implicated in
many holdups in Yellowstone National
Following the robbery at Moneida,
Whitney and his companion were cap
tured by a deputy sheriff and taken
aboard a train for transportation to
the nearest Jail. Whitney, though
handcuffed, managed to distract the
attention of his captor long enough to
snatch a revolver from the deputy's
belt, with which he shot and seriously
wounded him, killed the train con
ductor who came to the deputy's as
sistance and, with his companion,
jumped from the train and escaped
into the brush. A week's chase by of
ficers with bloodhounds failed to find
him. The body of a man, shot through
the head, was found a few days after
the escape from the train, who, from
the description given at the time, was
supposed to be Whitney's companion
in the robbery and subsequent killing.

CHICAGO. Oct. 31. (Special.)
American citizens who were born in
Germany, or were of German descent,
cut out the hyphen today and stood
up in North Side Turner hall as Amer
icans. There were more than 300 of them at
the meeting, which-was preliminary to
the organization of the Carl Schurz

is to convey the Teutonic feature of the
society, supplanting the name of the

with German agents, and he went away.
Efforts to learn the name of this man
were blocked at every step.
Many of those at the Turner hall
meeting were seceders from the Teu

which has had several stormy sessions.
The Teutonic Sons of America were
accused of being too radical too pro

their love for the Fatherland and its
institutions they desired first to be
recognized as Americans.

BI JOHN CALIJ1N O'LAUQHLIN.
WASHINGTON, Oct 81. (Special.)
Couched in more emphatic language
than any heretofore employed is the
American note to be presented to
Great Britain this' week, protesting
against violations of American' and
maritime rights and demanding that
further Interference with our trade
The United States declares:
1. That its sovereign rights have
been invaded by the limitations, risks
and liabilities imposed by Great Britain
on the ships of neutral powers.
2. That the procedure observed by
Great Britain under the various orders
in council is illegal.
3. That the British blockade, as de
scribed In the orders in, council and
applied thereunder, is not binding be
cause it is not effective.
4. That the blockade Is Ineffective
in that It discriminates between the
trade of neutral nations.
5. That the effect of British opera
tions is to blockade neutral countries,
which, of course, is in violation of in
6. That British practice subjects neu
tral ships proceeding to neutral ports
to the same suspicion of guilt which
attaches to neutral ships bound for
ports of enemies of Great Britain.
Innocent Goods Seised.
7. The British practice results in
the seizure of innocent goods exported
by Germany through neutral territory
to neutral states and exported by neu
tral states through neutral territory
8. That British practice In interfer
ing with trade between neutral coun
tries is not only illegal but unfairly
9. That British practice imposes the
burden of proof of Innocence on neutral
shippers whereupon the burden of
proof of guilt should rest on the cap
tor. 10. That the method observed by
British cruisers in taking neutral ships
into port for visit and search work
hardship on the neutral owners and
shippers and is not in accordance with
the requirements of international law.
11. That the contraband list as ex
panded from time to time by Great
Britain is arbitrary and in violation of

application of the doctrine of contin
uous voyage is not in accordance with
the interpretation and application of
the doctrine by the North during the
The note, in spite of its extreme
length 10,000 words has a backbone
of vigorous purpose, which will not
fail to escape ' the attention of the
British government and British people.
President llson, having forced Ger
many to conform its practice to the
principles of international law, is now
determined to obtain a like change in
policy on the part of Great Britain. He
realizes that the relations of the two
nations cannot possibly arrive at the
dangerous stage reached in those of the
United States and Germany, because, in
the first place, the matter at issue is
one which concerns conditions of life
instead of life itself, and in the second
there Is in force a treaty not in effect
with Germany, which provides for the
arbitration of all disputes of a legal
or treaty nature.
Freedom of Trade Important.
Nevertheless the President is aware
that freedom of trade is in accordance
with recognized practices of tremend
ous importance to the welfare of the
United States. It was in the light of
this knowledge that the draft of the
note was prepared by Chandler Ander
son, at the time legal adviser to the
Department of State, and revised by
Secretary Lansing and subsequently by
the President himself. Every state
ment , made in the communication,
therefore. represents the careful
thought of the executive branch of the
Government, and the Administration is
confident that the assertions and de
mands made will receive the united
support of the American people.
Moreover, the language employed is
expected to prove to the satisfaction
of the German government and peo
ple that the United States is playing
no favorites and is merely Insisting
