HAS ALWAYS BEEN DOUBTFUL
Chances Are Favorable, How
ever, to Republican ltoot
Talked of for Governor of
Washington. July 8. (Special.)
Now that both of the great parties
and, for that matter, the two smaller
ones have named their presidential
candidates, the question of vote-getting
will come up, and politicians are
already figuring on the possibility of
the democrats gaining strength enough
to elect .their man. As Indiana Is one
of the states where the battle will be
furiously waged, Its past record will
prove of Interest
Indiana has not gone democratic
since 1S92, and In that democratic
record-breaking year It gave but a
plurality of T.125. However, In those
figures one must recognise the fact
that the populist vote was 23.203. Four
years later, when both democrats and
populists voted for Bryan, the repub
lican plurality was 18.1S1. but about
10,000 prohibition votes were cast that
year with one or the other of the
great parties, the prohibitionists vote
for president In 1891 having been 13,-
050 and In 1896 only 3,058. As the
democratic vote In 1896 was about
40.000 larger than In 1S92, and the
republican vote about 68,000 larger,
probably the bulk of these 10,000 pro
hibition votes went to the republicans.
From these figures it will be seen that
a change of 30,000 or even more votes
in Indiana in the course of four years
is not remarkable. - I
Indiana gave McKlnley a plurality
of 26.470 In 1900, when both the re
publicans and the democrats had the
the aggregate of the democrats being
309.584, and of the republicans 333,
063. T.hat year the prohibition strength
returned to about what It had been
In 1892, the exact prohibition figures
for 1900 being 13,718. Two years ago,
in the election for secretary of state,
the republicans polled a plurality of
35,554, but that was due in part to the
larger stay-at-home vote among the
democrats, who polled over 46,000 less
votes than In 1900, while the repub
licans polled about 34,000 less votes.
Accordingly, the normal republican
majority which Indiana democrats
have to overcome this year Is not 85,
000, as one hears frequently, but about
26.000. The enormous campaign funds
poured Into that state In the last two
presidential years, as against a dem
ocratic exchequer almost empty, are
considered the reason for regarding
Indiana as fairly good fighting ground.
The vacillation of Indiana between
the two parties back in the '70s and
the '80s, before the intense modern
methods In politics prevailed and when
the voting population was about a
third less than now, showed a change
which the slates of the politicians as
well as publlo sentiment, may changs
KNOWS WHERE TREASURE IS.
Rhode Island Man Claims Knowledge
of Fabulous Deposit
Victoria, July 9. The mystery of
the famous burled treasure of Coco
Island, object of many a romantic
quest ending In failure, and discour
agement and ridicule for the wealth
hunters, Is solved at last. Yet If Cap
tain James Brown, of 100 Wellington
avenue, Augurn, & I., writes the truth,
the boxes and bags of gold and stiver
coin, caskets of previous gold and sti
ver, etc.. have merely shifted their al
luring magnetism; for Captain Brown
avers that as long ago as in 1849 he
personally assisted In a successful
search of Cocoa Island, participated In
the exhumation of the burled store of
Peruvian wealth, and bore a hand In
their removal to another palm-plumed
Island In the tropical Pacific, where
they are still safely hidden. Captain
Brown further declares that he la now
the sole survivor of the party officiat
ing at the second burial of the II odd
millions In the treasure trove, and he
Is now ready to head an expedition
with the recovery of the burled wealth
for Its purpose. In a letter to Collector
of Customs John C. Newbury of this
city, he writes:
"I know that seevral expeditions
have been fitted out from your place
for the famous Cocoa Island treasure.
The last one, I believe, was the brig
Btnkely, which failed to find It. The
reason It cannot be found Is that It Is
no longer on Cocoa Island. It was
there once, but was removed from
there In the latter part of 1849, and
planted on another Island of the South
Pacific and I was one of the men who
moved it and the only one living now
who knows where it Is. Will you be
kind enough to show this letter to any
one whom you think would be Inter
ested. I want to start another expe
dition for the treasure, and would be
glad to communicate with anyone In
Captain Brown does not explain
why the treasure should have been so
long cached the second time, nor why.
possessed of such a secret, he should
have so long delayed enriching him
self, or now require assistance In the
organisation of a recovery expedU
tlon. Hence It Is that Victorians with
firm abiding faith In the treasure, are
nevertheless a trifle shy as to Joining
In another proposed expedition of re
covery. There have been quite a score
of searches of Cocos to date, Involving
millions expenditure, the largest
equipped with a variety of electrical
finders and other novel scientific ap
pliances. These many fortune hunts have ex
tended through the past two score
years, the most recent and notable be
ing conducted by Admiral Palllser, of
the British navy, who utilised upward
of several hundred bluejackets, engi
neers, etc.. In his expedition with the
first-class cruiser Amphlon five or six
years ago, succeeded In uncovering an
Immense stone trapdoor, iron-hinged
precisely as promised in an ancient
Spanish document of which he had
become possessed, and then was barred
from further search by expiration of
the time at his disposal, coincident
with a tropical storm and avalanche
which burled the tunnel entrance to a
depth of a hundred feet. The admiral
