TROUBLE Hi TAMMAM
WIGWA3I GROWING
PLANS ARE BEIXG MADE
TO SCALP MURPHY.
Leader Blamed for (Vmnlcr's Bad
Defeat, and Fresh Revolt Is Said
T Be Almost at Hand.
Trains are "r»:r.g laid that may cause an ex
piosion which will shake the "chair being held
down by Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tammany
Hall. For months the feeiins against Murphy
which has existed almost continuously since
Lewis Nixon a* deposed has been crowlntr,
■ until n<vw open revolt is not only threatened but
is almost at hand. The final touch which was
needed to force the malcontents Into open op
position was the result of the election Tuesday
ui«rht In the city. Although it would nave taken
a wonderful Tammany majority below the Har
lem to offset the lead of Governor Hughes up-
State, the better element In Tammany Hall be
lieves that the ticket was practically thrown
down by Murphy, and that a much greater plu
frallty for Chanler should have been rolled up;
and on top of that was the plurality iven to
Mr. Taft. which was rubbing it in a bit.
Almost Maw the first day that Murphy en
tered the doors of Tammany Hall a.« its recog
nized MBier complaints that he wanted every
thing for himself rd that no one else had a
chance have been rife. This dissatisfaction de
veloped a few abortive attempts to overthrow
Murphy, but they only resulted disastrously to
those STB appeared openly in them.
A leader that had a harsh -word to say against
tfc» bJe chief simply ceased to be a leader, one
■sray or another, that was all. The leaders in the
present revolt, the first real one of any magni
tude, have acquired wisdom by watching the
unlucky fate of those who went before and are
keeping under cover until they can set off the
mine successfully. The grounds for revolt to a
large extent are the same as those of the pre
vious rebels. This revolt is not composed alone
of disgruntled district leaders who think they
are not getting a fair share of the patronage and
recognition of their merits, but has permeated
the rank and file of Tammany Hall— the solid
business men in its ranks and those who. -while
they have r.ot held cr Is not hold official posi
tion in the councils -day. are still a great
power -within the organization.
"There must be a reorganization of Tammany
Hall," said one of the leaders last 'night. 'That
has b*>en apparent for a long time, and now
things are practically at a head. The rough
shod way in which Murphy did the steam roller
act at Carnegie Hall was bad enough, but at
Derive*- it was even worse. There the New
Tork delegation refused at first to consider
Bryan, It was pointed out what a had tactical
mistake it would be. but Murphy just said that
Bryan was a good fellow and that was good
enough for him. Judson Harmon, who was
*?r<3-.g esoueh tr> get elected Governor of Ohio,
looked to be the best man to us. but Murphy
said he "*•&? for Bryan anyhow, co matter what
happenedi ar.d the value of his judgment was
sho-rm strikingly yesterday. So disgusted were
the greater part of the delegation at Murphy
that a g->od many cf them threatened to with
draw ar.d "Johnny" Bheehan actually- did re
fuse • 1 sit as one of the delegation.
-Murphy has got hi* brother in as a real
eata* dealer, and he has a pet advertising firm.
No on- but Murphy's brother and this pet firm
If getting anything these days. With the Su
preme Court justices cf Murphy's creation, no
erie el?' 1 has a chance."
"Murphy may be all right." said another -well
y^rrmm leader of Tammany, "when it comes to
handfc-.g the city, but he Is about a.- big a fall
ar . as ever had when it ------
else. H» showed the worst of judgment, to say
■the least, in the national situation, and. as far
ec the state g.-v»s, only succeeded in tying us up
first with Hearst and then with Conners and his
crowd. The election returns last night •wed
us just how much good he did ns by doing these
things. Besides, he -wants everything."
Other well known Tammany men. particularly
advertising and realty m^n. and contractors who
were sounded said that it would be only a short
time before Murphy -would be forced out. By
the time the mayoralty campaign begins next
year they say that Tammany will have a new
leader — one that does not forget the lime he col
tected fares on a horse car. and will work for the
organization and not for himself,
"»Vith Murphy will go a large number of lead
ers who:?e districts showed unexpectedly poor
r^pults. By Punday night it is charged that cer
tain Tammany leaders knew that Chanler would
risk* a pool showing in certain districts, and
that they took no measures to offset this condi
tion.
The whole the rani and ft!e who supported
the tick t loyally are angered at these leaders,
on whom they place the greater part of the
blame for Chanler's defeat. The defeat of 1 'ha-.
ler through poor work and Murphy's decision for
Bryan and no other are being put up ti Murphy
arid his. lieuttnants.
DR. ARMSTROSG OCT.
Bellevue's General Medical Superin
tendent Resigns.
Dr. Samuel T. Armstrong, general medical
enpertntendent of Bellevue and Allied Hospitals,
tendered hi? resignation to the board of trus
tees yesterday and II was accepted, to take
effect immediately. Dr. Armstrong has been
under suspension for some time, it is understood,
and th*» trustees have been considering charges
mad- against him.
11l health was given In the resignation as the
cans* cf Dr. Armstrong's action. Sim-e he left
the «-sty on his vacation In August he ha.<= been
suffering from nervousness, it is said, and a
physician who has l*-en attending him certified
to his condition, saying he did not think Dr.
Armstrong would t«» able to perform his duties
in the institution for months to tip.
The charges against Dr. Armstrong, it Is said,
g-i-w out of the *a!e by him of a library, known
as the "Index Medicas," to his brother-in-law,
R. Jones Cobin. Jn payment of a debt, and the
Fubfe^uent sal" of the library by Cobin to B"i;e

partment. This transaction was termed a mis
demeanor by the board of trustees.
One of the truFiees said yestenlaj^that an ap

Board for a competitive examination to .select

BKOKER KILLS MOTHER
VEIT THEX A SUICIDE.
Double Tragedy at Ansonia Follorcs
Secret Marriage.
Crazed by the unwillingness of his Hebrew
mother to meet and to receive into her family
hi« Christian wife, whom he had secretly mar
ried a little over a year ago, J. Nelson Veit. a
member of the Stock Exchange, early yesterday
morning: ttole into his mother's bedroom, at the
Ansonia, at 73d street and Broadway, and shot
her once under the left eye and once in the side,
killing: her instantly. Then, taking strange pre
caution tor personal comfort during the last
moments of his life, Veit carried a pillow into
the bathroom adjoining and. laying hi? head
upon it as he stretched faD length on the tiled
floor, was soon dead from gas, which he in
haled through a rubber tube.
The maiden name of Mrs. J. NeJaoo Veit was
Clara Jane Monroe^ and she and Veit were mar
ried by the Rev. Dr. Houghton. in the Little
Church Around the Corner, in September. 1907.
She had been living at No 11« V.'est 47th street
recently, but mnvd to the Chatsworth apart
ment house, 72d street and Riverside Drive. She
pays she was an actress before her marriage to
Veit.
Only a wall separated the victims of the double
tragedy from Miss Anna v It, the young man's
aunt, who, ordinarily a light sleeper, did not
hear the two prints and did not know of the
murder until she went to Mrs. Veit's door at
9:45 o'clock yesterday morning to awaken her
for breakfast Her repeated knocking bringing
no response, «=he gave the alarm, and the body
of Mrs. Veit was found on the bed.
That Veit's act was not premeditated was be
lieved by all of his friends yesterday. At the
office of Veit. Lynn & Co.. at v N*<->. 113 Broadway,
or" which firm he was a member, no on* knew of
the tragedy until a reporter of The Tribune
called. The embers of the firm were astound
ed. One of the men in the office spoke of Mr.
Veit's wife, ■: whom none of them had ever
heard.
"You may say in the most positive terms,"
said Mr. Lyon, a partner In the firm, "that in
no financial way -does the death of Mr. Veit
touch the affairs of this company. Mr. ■ Veit
held a seat on the New York Stock Exchange,
and we shall take steps at once to fill it. ■ This
will probably be accomplished within a week."
"And he shot his mother?* 1 exclaimed ooie of
the firm. '."I would say it impossible. Last
Friday night I spent several hours with Mrs.
'■. • and her son in her apartment at the An
sonia. and I never saw more beautiful relations
between a mother and son. Furthermore, he was
always bringing his mother into conversation
with me, in ways that proved his deep affection
for her."
Veit, Lyon & Co. began business last July.
yi r Veit had been a member of the exchange for
some time, -Joing business in his own name at
No. ■'•-' Broadway.
Mrs. Veit was found by the police in. an eight
room apartment in the Chatsworth. Before she
had been told that her husband was dead, fhe
acknowledged to the police that she had been
married to Veit. She had never met his mother,
she paid. She also said that she did not know
whether his mother had ever been told of the
marriage. she had been away from New York
practically all the time since he r marriage, she
said, not returning to this city until the first
of last month.
Since that pc she and Mr. Veit, ■* said, had
been living together. She said her husband had
left her about 7:.'iO o'clock on Tuesday -light
and had telephoned about .-..■■ o'clock, saying
be was at the Waldorf watching the election re
turns, but would be home In about half an hour.
U was the last word she had received from
him.
Miss \'ett told the police that twice she had
spent the night with Mrs. Veil sleeping in the
same room. On Tuesday night, she said, Ehe
slept in t:.* roum formerly occupied by the son.
She went to the apartment at 7:30 o'clock and
found Veit and his mother there. About .10:30
o'clock, she said, V .it telephoned to some one—
?h*- did not know to whom— and then luncheon
was served. . •
After that Veit departed', and the two women
talked over their plan 3 for the coming winter
until about 11:46 o'clock, when they retired.

Lincoln. Neb.. Nov. 4.— William J. Bryan, in
an informal talk to a number of friends who
called on him to-day, expressed his pleasure at
the result in Nebraska, ar.d the satisfaction af
forded him to learn of the election of so many
of his poiitVa! and personal friends.
A delegation numbering nearly a hundred
from Lincoln visited him at Falrview to ex
press their confidence and devotion, and to as
sure him that such was the sentiment of a
majority of the people of hi- city and state.
Mr. Bryan In response said
I am highly gratified over the results in this stat".

The defeat apparently did not weigh heavily
on Mr. Bryan. He was one of the most cheerful
of those at his home, and laughed and joked
with his visitors. To-night he was the, chief
guest at the banquet of the State Teachers' As

-MARYLAND FOR TAFT
PI.VKAUTY IS 136 VOTES.
Possibility Thai State's Electoral
Vote WiU Be Divided.
[By T>l»*raph to The Tribune.]
Baltimore. Nov. 4. — The political pendulum
has swung once more, and to-night, on the face
of unofficial returns, Taft has carried Maryland
by 13<) votes.
These figures are rather unsatisfactory, be
.cause of the way in which, returns from a few
of the precincts of Dorchester and Worcester
counties have been sent in by correspondents.
In these precincts, sufficient easily to change the
result, the correspondents have figured out the
pluralities instead of sending in to their papers
the number of votes cast for each candidate.
Unquestionably, the official count, which is to
begin to-morrow, must be looked to for, the
actual result, and neither side will feel convinced
until the result of that count is made known.
There must be taken Into consideration, too,
the possibility of a divided electoral delegation.
as. while figures are lacking, it is known that
the votes for the several electors have varied,
and this variation may prove material.
The returns from the counties have caused
the greatest surprise. When most Baltl inoreans
went to bed la^t night it was in the belief that
Mr. Taft had carried the- state by a plurality in
the neighborhood of 3.000. , It was long past
midnight when he returns from the countie3
began to cut down this apparent lead. Indeed,
as late as 5 o'clock this morning there was no
sufficient reason for believing that the Taft
plurality would fall below 80rt. But the early
morning returns continued to reduce it, and
finally, aft^r some fluctuations, it appeared to
be wiped out altogether.
'■The News" in it- last edition this evening
gave the ■.ir- to Bryan by 332. But still later
returns showed a reaction of small but potent
proportions To-night every, precinct in the
state has been heard from, and from all but about
a dozen the full figures on Bryan and Taft have
been received. From the others have come, as
stated, the pluralities for one or the other as
figured by the local correspondent. Using these
figures. T.ift's vote in state and city combined
Is 111. 254 and Bryan's 111.118.
• In this city, with all precincts reported, Taft
has 50.882 and Bryan 49,082, giving the city
to the former by just 1.800. But here, again,
the official account may change the apparent
result. Throughout the state the votes polled
by the Prohibition. Socialist and Independence
party candidates made only a trifling total. The
figures are not obtainable to-night. Indeed,
all returns from this election in Maryland have
been unusual diffi< ult to obtain.
While the Maryland delegation in Congress
remains unchanged in political complexion, it
Is changed In personnel. Kronmiller. Repub
lican, replaces Wolf, Democrat, in the third
district, and Covington. Democrat, succeeds
Jackson, Republican. In the Ist. Th.- great sur
prises appeared In the heavy reductions in the
majorities of Congressman Mudd in the sth
District and Congressman Pearre in the Oth.
Covington's plurality in the Ist District is (un
officially) £872: Talbott's, in the 3d, -,4>B:
Kronmiller's; in the 3d, 311; GUl's, in the Ith.

3,134 two years ago, and Pearre's, in the 6th.

vote throughout the state was heavy.
THREE REPORTED LOST.
Keif port Man Says They Were
Drowned Off Bobbin* Reef.
A man who said his name was Walling and
that he was a constable at Keyp<>rt, N. J.
called up the police in Richmond Borough last
night and asked them U> keep a watch for the
bodies of three men who he said, were rlrownM
when a power launch exploded m Tuesday night
near Robbins B«f. He also wanted to know
about another number of the party who. he paid,
had b«-en picked up by a passing b^at and mken
to a hospital, be believed, in Richmond.
He said he understood the men who were
drowned belonged in Keypt.rt. The police had
no report of any such accident in the bay.
TAFT 309 VOTES IN
ELECTORAL COLLEGE
Maryland for Republican Ticket by 136 Votes —
Missouri Still in Doutt.
NEW YORK GIVES TAFT 20 1 ,8 1 4
Indiana Safe for Taft, but Democrats Win Governor and Senator-
West Virginia Republican.
William H. Taft, of Ohio, as President-elect, will have a vote of at least 309 in
the Electoral College. This is within sixteen votes of the forecast made by
tional Chairman Frank H. Hitchcock and 67 mere than a majority out of rhe total
electoral vote of 483 Missouri is still in doubt, and should present indications 1
confirmed by later returns the state will go for Taft by a small plurality. This
would give him 327 votes.
The latest returns indicate that Maryland, after vacillating during the day and
apparently being safe for the Democracy, has been swung into the Taft column.
The unofficial figures give Mr. Taft the state by 136 votes.
New York State rolls up a plurality for Taft of 201.814. Governor Hughes
wins by a plurality of 69,633.
Indiana and West Virginia, as well as Montana, are safely Republican. Colo
rado went for Bryan.
Mr. Bryan has a certain total of 156 votes, Missouri being doubtful In 1904
Mr. Parker received only 140 votes, in 1900 Mr. Bryan received 155 votes and in
1896 the Nebraskan received 176 votes.
Mr. Taft's 309 electoral votes compare with 336 received by Roosevelt in 1904,
292 received by McKin'ey in 1900 and 271 received by McKinley m 1896
The Republicans will have about the,same working majority in the 61st Con
gress as at present, and Joseph G. Cannon, of Illinois, undoubtedly will succeed
himself as Speaker. Representatives Jesse Overstreet. of Ohio, and Hepburn, of
lowa, are the most conspicuous among these who have failed of
The heavy vote in Ohio made figures extraordinarily late, owing to the im
mense size of the ballot. Mr. Taft earned his own state, however, by 50,000 plural
ity, a reduction of more than 200.000 from the Roosevelt vote of four years ago.
The Democratic state ticket, headed by Judson Harmon for Governor, appears to
be safely elected. The state Legislature, which is to choose a successor to Senator
Foraker. appears to be in doubt as between the Republicans and the Democrats.
In Indiana Mr. Taft was successful in carrying the state by about 8.300. but
the entire Democratic state ticket, headed by Mr. Marshall for Governor, was elect
ed. The Congressional delegation from the state shows a gain of seven Demo
crats.
The returns from West Virginia, owing to the mountainous character of the
country, are slow in coming in. A sufficient number of counties and districts
have been heard from, however, to showthat Mr. Taft has a safe paan
The latest returns indicate that in the national House of Representatives
