Aboard Roosevelt Special En Route to Baltimore. Oct. 25.— (A.P.) —Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt, homeward bound on the final stages of his last big stumping tour, pushed rapidly northward today across two southern Btates which cast their electoral votes for Hoover in 1928.  Only brief stops were planned in these two Btates—North Carolina and Virginia—before pressing on toward Baltimore, scene of the final speech of the trip tonight. The special arrives in New' York Wednesday and thereafter the governor will do his battling in the populous states of the north Atlantic seaboard.  With 15 minute stops at Raleigh, N. and Richmond, scheduled for 9:30 a. m., and 1:30 p. m., respectively, the governor hade goodbye to the southland and entetej the border state of Maryland, which was found in the Hoover column in 1928.  After conferences with senators and governors who flocked around him in Atlanta Governor Roosevelt said he now believed it certain he would be elected.  He left Atlanta last night after a two day visit culminating in a mass meeting w’hich packed the city’s big auditorium to the rafters while hundreds of others clamored in vain for admittance.  In his first address delivered in the heart of the south by a Democratic presidential nominee in many years. Governor Roosevelt repeated his pledges for aid for the farmer through easing the farm mortgage situation and raising agricultural prices by a tariff benefit.  Secretary Hydo as well as President Hoover served as the target of pointed paragraphs. *’I believe that we owe it to the farmers of America to have as secretary of agriculture an agricultural leader instead of a political leader,” he said.  In this connection an open boom for “Cotton Ed” Smith, veteran senator from South Carolina, for the post of secretary of agriculture in the event of Democratic success w r as launched by a delegation from his state at the conferences today.  President Hoover was accused by Mr. Roosevelt of advocating a “doctrine of despair” based on the theory that there can he no help for the farmer or the laboring man “until prosperity returns through some kind of slow process of world reson-structio.n”  “And I am, moreover, enough of an American,” he said, “to believe that such a restoration of prosperity in this country ’by revival of mass purchasing power’, w’ill do more to effectuate world recovery than all of tho promotional schemes of lending money to backward and crippled countries could do in generations. In this respect I am for America first.”  WOMAN CAPTURES BURGLAR; HUSBAND LETS HIM ESCAPE  Oklahoma City, Oct. 25.— (A.P.) — Armed with a butcher knife, Mrs. Virgil Mitchell captured a youthful burglar and marched him Into custody of her husband, working at a nearby garage.

Criticising President Hoover as “the dry leader of the United States," he devoted much of his speech to ridiculing the Republicans on prohibition. He assailed them on charges of bigotry, deception and hypocrisy.  Smith claimed authorship of the Democratic repeal plank and assailed the Republican plank as holding out "a sop to the wets and a little bone to the drys.” He called on New Jersey to make the senate Democratic at the next session by electing Percy Stewart to succeed the late Dwight Morow.
