DEMOCRATS CLAIM SUFFICIENT
MAJORITY IN NEW YORK CITY
To Overcome the Republican Counties.
The Metropolis Considered an
Important Factor In
New YorU Oct. 31. Tho great city
Is one of the Important problems of
tho nntlonnl campaign. It thu stnle ol
New York Is to elect a Democratic
governor tho Democratic vote of the
city must bo large enough to overcome
the veto thnt will be cast In the Re-
publican counties to the north and
It Is generally admitted ninl U tut
city gives a plurality much lu excess ol
100.000 the state will be close and this
may Insure a victory also for Judgo
Parker. Tho Republicans do not agree
with tho Democratic claim that their
voto will bo materially cut down in
tho rural counties but It is clear that
they aro desperately fighting In every
way to decrease the Democratic voto
In the city.
The campaign however has been
listless on both sides In the city just
as It lias been In tho stato.
Charles V. Murphy leader of Tam-
many Hall. Insists that he will bo able
to present to Judge Parker a plurality
almost equal to that given to Bird S.
Coler In 1902 Mi. oh was l'J2.000. He
expects to exceed tho Coler vote for
Judgo Herrlck. Other Tammany men
are not mj sanguine and place the plu-
rality for tho head of tho ticket at
about 90000 In tho city.
Tho best estimate tho Republicans
make Is G3.000 Democratic In tho en
tire city but these figures arc likely to
be regarded as too low oven by con'
servatlvo Republican observers.
Tho city gave Grovcr Cleveland In
1892 a plurality of 109000. It gave
McKlnley itf 189S 52000. It gave Au-
gustus Van Wyck in 1898 80000. It
gave Bryan In 1900 28000. Coler. In
1902 had 122000 more votes than Gov-
Odell. Since the Color vote Is the principal
problem with the politicians it Is In-
teresting to comparo tho voto of that
year with that for governor In 1900.
tho last presidential year when Odell
ran behind tho national ticket. Mr.
Color's total vote In tho city wns 327-
132. That of Mr. Stanchfleld two years
before wns 310393 an Increase In tho
Democratic vote of 10.739. This in
crease was 0719 In Manhattan and
tho Bronx 2059 In Kings 1.019 in
Queens in 312 in Richmond. Guv.
Odell's total vote In 1900 was 272130
and in 1902 It wns 204499 a decrcaso
In the Republican voto of C7.C31. Thoro
was a decrease of 43791 In Mnnhattan
22100 In Kings 2.732 in Qitecns and
l.OOS In Richmond.
Tho Hopubllcnna contend that their
voters who failed to como out In 1901
are coming out this year anu will vote
for Iloosevelt and Hlgglns. The Donv
ocrats assort that Odelllsm Is still tho
Issue and that the stay-at-homo Re-
publicans of 1902 If they register will
do so In order to voto against tho
governor's ticket and against tho poli-
cies of Mr. Roosevelt.

ORGANIZATION OF THIS MOVE
MENT NOW UNDER WAY.
This Work Has Deen Entrusted to One
Who Is Thoroughly Acquainted
With Indian Territory Condi
tlon and Needs of Psspis.
Tho question of good roads Is one
that should appunt to every good cltl-
sion In tho Indian Territory. That it
has In tho past Is evidenced by tho
progress that has been mado lu tills ill -
rectlon. Tho burden of Improvement
has fallen largel yupon n few while
many have ueen vastly benefited. Tho
public spirit has never failed to re
spond to the cause of good roads lu
this Immediate vicinity. Iast year
much money was contributed lu Ard
more fVir the purpose of Improving the
highways. As commerce dictates tho
economic policy of every nation good
roads will result In n policy of wis-
dom for tho commercial Interest of
this country livery avenue of trado
is directly benefited by tho Improve-
ment v)f the roads. If thoro Is a coun-
try under tho sun that needs improve-
ment It Is the territory.

The building of these roadf Is seem-
ingly beyond the control of tho local
people but the Idea advanced by Mr.
Susgs is practically the same oxprcss
ed at Oklahoma City by a prominent
speaker who said:
"The government has helped In
many enterprises giving In
about two hundred million ncres to
encviurago tho building of various
lines of railway and to others they
have given tho government credit
amounting to what wo might ask in
this case but always on a risk which
Is positively eliminated in this case.
It may not bo amiss to call your atten-
tion to government aid amounting to
millions to help tho l-oulslana Pur
chase Exposition In this case a very
risky InvcBtmcnt of your monoy.
'It has occurred to us that this might
bo the better way to get the required
amount of money for this Immense un
dertaking. We. however havo tho
same organization work to do no mat
ter how wo propose to ralso tho money.
The township county stnto and nation

stand together nnd through their or-
ganization mnko their wishes known
when tho averngo official Is ready to
do your bidding. Nothing can be dono
without organization. Through or-
ganization alono can tho pcoplo speak
the will of a majority. Onco tho pco
plo havo so spoken tho law desired Is
quickly enacted. I may say thoro Is
some prcjudlco against tho government
having anything to say In managing
the affairs of any state and In caso a
direct gift In aid of this work tho gov-
ernment would havo something to say
as t how It was to bo expondod at
least In the bond plan as proposed.
Sho would not havo nny Interest or
control in tho manner In which It woro
to bo expended. Tho Btates would
havo full control. Ono thing is cer-
tain tho money must bo raised some-
how. Tho loss which grows dally Is
a menace to our country's futuro prog-
ress and can only bo corrected by
good roads. Tho department ol agrl-
culture throtlgu carefully prepared
statistics shows that bad roads Inflict
a dally loss upon our people of about
three million dollars a year nnd each
year as wo increase our products this
great loss Increases. It follows thnt
tne savings would In n very few years
pay tho IntoroBt on tho amount need-
ed to mnko all our roads good ones
and pay tho bonds upon which the
money wcro raised to nay nothing ns
to the comforts nnd ndvantngos that
would como to us with good roads
which exceed tho value In money
"In conclusion It must bo apparent
to nil that tho tltuo has como when
wo must change ; wo ennnot Btnnd the
traln or loss from bad roads. Wo need
o savings nnd comforts of good
'"ads that wo mny perfcrm our destiny
