While Republican managers declare Mcmaster will gain a Clear majority of nil votes cast along with the rest of the ticket Louis x. Calll democratic state Washington d. Cd a nov. it pm the great american political classic of 1924 is approaching its Day of decision in a Shower of Sharp words and a fog of rival predictions. In its final stages it has brought into play All the familiar Strate Geme. Modernized to fit an age of radio movies and senatorial investigations and Laid out a new scale to Appeal to every Remote sub division of the Ever growing american electorate. The last Day of Active campaigning finds most of the principals East of the Mississippi seeking advantage in a sector Long regarded As almost dominant. Meantime in every Nook and Corner of the nation Republican lesser lights Are shining their brightest to guide tho feet of the wavering voter along the pathway of party rectitude. Keeping to a policy adopted at the inception of the Campaign president Coolidge alone among the candidates for the highest office will remain outside the Rushing maelstrom of oratory that heralds to the world another reelection saturday night. While the i new York democracy is rallying to hear John w. Davis conclude his platform Campaign in Carnegie Hall i tonight and senator Lafollette is summing up his Case against the old parties in convention Hall at Cleveland or. Coolidge expected to re i main quietly at Home in the White House a Spectator with a front seat beside the quiet Potomac. Two on same platform but monday night the president Wil deliver a final election eve message to the american people by radio speaking after or. Davis who likewise has addressed the great invisible jury of Sovereign voters through a nation wide system of ,. A a. _ enough of a Lead to overcome a broadcasting stations. Thus for the j first time will the nation listen to two presidential candidates As if from one platform. Charles g. Dawes who has borne the Brunt of the forensic Battle for the Republican ticket will close his Campaign tonight at South Bend. Ind., after having followed his famous dipper pipe across Many states. Gov. Charles w. Bryan will wind up in his Home state of Nebraska after a speaking trip that has taken Bim Over much of the Western country where the name of for Many years has been a political institution. Senator Wheeler the Only nominee on any of the three tickets to carry his Cam by w. R. Ronald from the Best indications the evening Republican has been Able to obtain tuesdays election in South Dakota will result in pluralities for the following Robert m. Lafollette for president. W. H. Mcmaster for United states senator. Carl Gunderson for governor. A. Christopherson Royal c. Johnson and William Williamson for representative in Congress. All of these Are republicans except Lafollette. This article is an attempt to Tell what is the actual political situation in this state As distinguished from what i might wish it to be. The republicans news columns have no candidates for any office. As it is the constant Effort of the Republican to make its news pages impartial As Between parties so it is the attempt in this review to picture the conditions As they exist in this state without Bias or color for or against any candidate. To paraphrase and Gumps famous phrase it has always been True of this state that As goes the Farmer so goes South Dakota. Therefore when it is asked How South Dakota will vote on president it is the same j thing As asking How the Farmer will vote. Cities for Coolidge of the larger cities the majority from indications will go for Coolidge. These include Aberdeen Mitchell. Campaign so far As South Dakota is concerned has failed utterly to make an Appeal to the Farmer. Not a single outside speaker sent into the state has appeared either to a talk our language or to be at All sympathetic with the struggles of the Farmer. Senator Norbert who probably has the largest personal following in this state was kept in Nebraska until wednesday of this week. He and congressman Christopherson Are the Only two. Who have shown or their speeches an a understanding of the actual feeling of the Farmers and have made the kind of address calculated to show them that they fire not making a vote of protest in voting for Lafollette. However sound or. Dawes Issue of a is ing the constitutions May be. One needs Only to get in touch Vrtis a few Farmers to find How Little it has interested them. This is partly due to the fact that they Are not especially j solicitous about the Constitution j when their chattels or farms Havi been Token from them or Are in Dang-1 or of being lost. And yet the Republican retort to the proofs de Lafollette change in the Constitution has been made the Burdon of the speeches of the outside speaker sent into the state not Only has toe National Campaign for the farm vote As directed by its Eastern management faced even to got an audience from the South Dakota Farmers bet tho South Dakota Campaign has been badly disorganized. This is not due to any Lack of Talent on the part of George Wright the state chairman or any inactivity in the state Headquarters. It has been due largely to the attitude of the Farmer. Local Republican candidates finding How inaccessible was the Farmers aloofness on National issues have been Loath to wreck their own chances by attempting to Corral him for Coolidge. In addition to this relations Between the state Headquarters and gov. Mcmaster the head of the state ticket have been strained due in part to opposition of some of the party workers to him and partly no doubt to the influence of the commercial interests he has attacked so aggressively in his last term As governor whatever the reasons there has been very Little campaigning for the whole Republican ticket so far As individual candidates Are concerned. Lafollette has state the above probably Are some of the reasons Why polls and local canvass four Are dead three Hurt in riot at Niles knights of flaming Circle seek to prevent Parade and clash occurs troops ordered out gov. Donahey takes immediate action on learning of fatalities rapid City Deadwood and Lead. If one May judge from a comparison of is have shown so Strong a Lafollette 29,000 majority. Dawes to wind up his Campaign with Indiana addresses u pollen Eltayes tuesday verdict will be for him pain All the Way to the Pacific Maut will conclude it with a night meeting on the Atlantic Seaboard in new York City. From All three Camps today there issued the usual pre election expressions of absolute satisfaction and unbounded Confidence. Each group insisted most emphatically that its particular candidates had not been weakened by evidence produced before the Senate Campaign fund investigators although each appeared quite convinced that the casualties among the opposition would to heavy.

Come Early get a Good teat and spend the evening. 10 draft a statement for submission to the voters before election Day. Republicans spend most the final figures on Campaign contributions have not yet become a matter of record but to Date the Republican total stands far in the Lead approaching $4,000,000, with the three vernered presidential fight filling the Eye of the nation the congressional Campaign has had to take a Back seat from the Start and seems Likely not to come into its own in the Way of National attention until the returns begin to Roll in on tuesday night interest in it has been further localized by a variety of unusual bipartisan combinations in tile respective states what May he the result of that tangle no one seems Able to predict. The Republican and democratic managers today made their usual claims to overwhelming Victory and Lafollette leaders smilingly suggested that whichever of the old parties secures a paper majority the followers of the Quot Wisconsin senator Are certain to contract their grip on the balance of Power in the Senate and House a i senators to lie named besides the entire membership of the House 3 4 senators Are to he chosen tuesday enough to upset the present slender Republican majority i should the tide of Fortune turn to the democrats. Govern Are to be elected in 34 states including new York i where Alfred a Smith and Theodore Roosevelt have staged a Battle Royal with never a Dull moment up to the very finish. Of a the last horse drawn omnibus was used in London in 1911, the Dawes and Lafollette meetings at Sioux Falls that City will go for Lafollette. Reports from Watertown would make it appear that Coolidge is Likely to lose it. If this is a Correct line up of the larger cities of the state it is evident that Coolidge will not go into the Rural precincts with by disadvantage in the Farmer vote. Coming to the Farmer there is general agreement As to the attitude he occupied at the beginning of the National Campaign. He has gone through three hard years. He has seen his prices deflated As much As 90 per cent at the maximum. He has seen prices of the things he bought stay up to somewhere near the War level. To make it the More difficult he has seen a Large number of Banks fail in the past year tying up his funds or bringing demands for payment of his obligations at a sacrifice of values if necessary. It has required Only personal Contact with the Farmer to know that he came into the Campaign with a pronounced determination to use the ballot As an instrument of protest for what he has gone through. As the Prospect for a Corn crop became dubious in the Early summer and As the wheat crop elsewhere in the world was found to be Short Grain prices began to pick up. Livestock did not follow for almost two months with the result that a Good Many Farmers sold their cattle and hogs to save Corn upon which they could not realize Market value by con j venting it into beef or pork. Later the Price of hogs jumped As much As $4.00 per Hundred weight. Better prices help some it has been widely believed that the Sharp Advance in prices of farm products would hold the Farmer vote for sentiment among the Farmers. There is. In addition to this a very considerable silent vote of this is largely for Coolidge it May turn the state to him. The general belief however is that Coolidge can not reasonably expect the big end of the vote that is not talking. A second influence in favor of Coolidge is the fact that the Lafollette electors Are buried in the Independent column. Lafollette has Only a Skeleton organization in the state and so has not the Means of educating the voter on the peculiarities of the ballot. This detail May be Good for 10,000 votes for Coolidge or which is the same thing the loss of that number to Lafollette. If any one who is Well informed about the conditions in the state were obliged to make a forecast however it would in that Lafollette seems to have South Dakota safely in his column for next tuesday. Aside from the presidency there has been a real contest in this state Over Only one other office named on the general ballot and that is United states senator. There can be no question about the bitterness of the fight on gov. Mcmaster. This was forecast Over a year ago when Oil dealers were publicly uttering denunciations of the governor couched in the strongest language. Mcmaster has been a single footer in his capacity As governor and this has caused some personal animosities especially Over the distribution of patronage. Banking difficulties have estranged others who have held him responsible for some of cond-1 tons. Altogether these hostilities to him so operated upon the politically ambitious that no less than seven of them thought they saw a Chance to defeat him. This of course is proving troops in control Niles Ohio nor. I.up a Ohio National guardsmen Titok control of tho pol co authority Iii Niles shortly before 3 p. In.

Turn Over on Page 2 in this edition of the Republican Are printed detailed reports of All the big football games played this afternoon. Read them in the Republican first. Coolidge. W without a doubt it has been a a tremendous advantage to the gov Worth a Good Many thousands of ballots to the president. But there Are reasons to doubt if it has exerted a powerful enough influence to put him in the Lead in the Rural precincts at least of this state. First of these is the fact that tho Farmer has sold at losing prices for three years and he Lins not even realized on the higher prices except on the Sale of some of this years Small Grain. Secondly it has often happened that prices of Corn and hogs have been High in the late summer and Early autumn when the Farmer has least to Market Only to slump when he began to sell Ani the Sharp decline in the hog Market during october would tend to make the Farmer believe that such is to be the Case again this Winter. Thirdly the Corn crop is so Short that at the higher Price the Farmer will just about break even with last year when he figured he did not get enough to put him ahead after paying his taxes and the on his Loans. These Are some of the reasons Why the upward flight of tho Grain and live Stock markets in the past three or four months has not been enough to erase from the Farmers consciousness the bitter memories of the past three years that the South Dakota Farmer has not relinquished his a a Grouchy if such it May be called against the existing a Powers that be a has been made evident by the secular titles of this Campaign. For the first time in the history of the state it has been a impossible to get the Farmer out to Public meetings. Even school House gatherings have been made up of Little More than a handful in most cases. Campaign yorkers have found it impossible to sound the Farmer s political feelings. The a silent vote is reported by All polls to be the largest Ever known in the state. Farmers mind made up. This fact of the reticence and aloofness of the Farmer is significant in two Way. First of All it has been impossible to get him out to Public meetings for the purpose of attempting to reason with him and secondly it would seem to indicate that the farm had made up his mind and was not open to a change of convictions. On top of All this the Republican error. One excellently informed and seasoned political expert in this state estimates that if Mcmaster gets Only 50,000 of the 160.000 votes to expects will be cast next tuesday to will have enough to Lead any other candidate because the opposition is divided seven ways. Cherry has Handicap or. Cherry the democratic nominee has made a desperate Effort to narrow the contest to Mcmaster and himself. In this Cherry has the big disadvantage of the Complete desertion of the state by the presidential nominee. No Campaign has been made in South Dakota for Davis and it is generally reported that those normally democratic will vote either for Coolidge or Lafollette. This Means that they must skip to another column if they vote for Cherry. Mcmaster has Many thousands of votes among the Lafollette followers. Primarily because of his part in bringing Down the Price of gasoline which is regarded by the Farmer As a protest against the High prices he believes have been exacted from him. Gov. Mcmaster has intensified this feeling by including in his Campaign speeches intensive attacks on the prices asked for Coal and farm machinery. While any forecast As to Mcmasters vote is Only a guess it would seem probable that he would poll at least half of the total vote which should put him far out in front of his nearest competitor. Gunderson certain Winner there has been scarcely any opposition to Carl Gunderson the Republican nominee for governor. He has been working busily among Farmers for two years and devoting a lot of time to measures and plans for a better farm Market. He is admittedly a Winner next tuesday and should run up with or ahead of Mcmaster. The three Republican nominees for Congress All up for re election have been members of the farm bloc and they have been stressing this in their campaigns. Williamson in the third might have had some difficulty if the third and Independent candidate had remained in the race but he has now Niles Ohio nov.
