Mr Parker 1S9, With
Washington, August 18.—President
Roosevelt's close friends and his otti
cial family have a strong and abiding
faith in the outcome of the election
this fall. They believe tljat he will
be elected by a tremendous majority
and that nothing can beat him. The
air of supreme confidence that the
President shows to all his visitors is
equally shared by the members of his
cabinet and by the leaders of the
party. They are going into the light
with the most valuable asset they
could possibly have—confldence in a
A table of the electoral votes was
submitted to a member of President
Roosevelt's cabinet today with the re-
quest that he revise it according to
his own Ideas. The request was will-
ingly compiled with, the only stipula-
tion being that his name was no tot
be used in connection with it. With
hasty strokes of pen he made the
changes In the Roosevelt. Parker and
doilbtful columns and wlien Ink. had
finished there were a total of 284 votes
for Roosevelt, 159 for Parker and
tifty-three doubtful, Connecticut,
New Jersey, Rhode Island and West
Virginia lie transferred from the
doubtful column. Colorado he took
away from the Roosevelt column and
classed among the doubtful. Dela-
ware he also took from Parker and
placed among the doubtful votes.
When he had finished the table stood

shire 4, Vermont 4, Massachusetts 16

making a toial of 53.
This table shows that President
Roosevelt will be elected by a majori-
ty of tifty-two electoral votes, even
should the democrats carry all of the
states here classed as doubtful It
has been asserted by leading republi-
cans from the first that Roosevelt can
lose New York and still win, though
it is admitted that the election usual-
ly goes as does the Empire state.
However, the,' above table may be
taken as representing the views of
the administration on the outcome of
the campaign. Prepared as it was by
a member of the cabinet it may safely
be assumed that this alignment of
electoral vote is what is expected by
President Roosevelt and his advisors.
In explanation of the table the cabi-
net member who prepared it said:
"The democrats have been claiming
Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Is-
land and West Virginia, but there
not the slightest ground for such
grounds. They are all normal repub-
lican states and until some reason lias
been shown for classing them as doubt-
ful, 1 see no excuse for not putting
them in the republican column. I
am certain that they will all go for
Roosevelt. The talk of Illinois or
Wisconsin going democratic also lacks
the basis of fact. Republican leaders
of Illinois claim the republican ticket!
will carry that state by 100,000 and allj
the indications point to the accuracy
of this prediction. Nothing has de-
veloped to warrant any claim that the
democrats have a show to get that
state. Up in Wisconsin there is talk
of the state going for I*arker, but
these who are familiar with the situa-
tion there have no fears of that re-
sult. The best judgment is that the
factional Hunt, bitter as it is, will not
endanger the success of the republi-
can ticket and it is reasonable to
claim that Wisconsin will go for Presi-
dent Roosevelt by 60,000. Of Indiana
also, there is no d.iubt. Mr. Fairbanks
makes that certain
The conditions in Colorado are
well known and there is no denying
that they are such as to warrant plac- i
ing that state in the doubtful column.
We believe wf have as good chance to
carry it as 1 lie democrats, and possio-
ly a better one, but I believe at this
time it can only be properly classed
as doubtful. The same estimate ap-
plies to Delaware. Possibly the
chances in that state are even more
favorable for the republicans, but the
political conditions there are so cloud-
ed that no one can at this time pre-
dict the result with any degree of cer-.
We all admit that New York- is'
fighting ground and that both parties
are justified In making a great effort
there. The republicans expect to
carry it, but there is no denying the
fact that we will have to tight for it.
Judge Parker's speech of -vcceptance
failed to arouse the enthusiasm that
it was hoped It would. There i$ no
evidence that the democrats are mak-
ing any progress whatever in their
campaign and therefore I cannot see
that they have any good ground for
claiming New York or any other
