COBB'S MEN ACTIVE
Says Senator Is Belter Hughes
S ' n j) porter than Davis.

Albany, March 4.— To head off manifesta
tions of public disapproval of Senator
George H. Cdbb because lie is supported by
the Woodruff-Barnes-Ward combfnatien for
temporary president of the Senate, the
Cobb miii are working; hard to show that
their candidate Is a good a Hughes man
a? his opponent. Senator Davis, of Buffalo.
They hay been driven to this by scores
of telegrams and letters which have been
seni to some of the less vigorous Cobb
Senators urging them to support only a
Hughes man for leader.
Senator 1. Maytaew SVaiuwright, who
«otnes from National Cammitteeman
"Ward's bailiwick and la one of the ragtri
active < ''!>i, supporters, to-dn;. declared
that Senator Cobb on his record was a bet
ter Hughes man than the Buffalo Senator
••If it is to be considered that the at
j titudes of Senators Davis and Cobb upon
| measures advocated by Governor Hughes
I reflect upon thru- respective claims with
regard to progressive legislation. i think
that their attitudes should be closely
! scrutinized. Senator Cobb has been, 1 be
lieve^ a. more consistent supporter of the
views of Governor Hughes than Senator
Davis, if that is the Issue. With the ox
jcepiion perhaps of -the Hinmaiv^reen bill,
i he las supported all the Governor's recom
mendations, as 1 understand it. As an ex
ponent of the right kind of political re
form, i feel confident that Senator Cobb
should be as acceptable to the people as
temporary president of the Senate as his
opponent for that office. He is a man of
strong character" and line ability."
Little Choice Personally.
This statement undoubtedly is true and
just, and there .can be very little choice
between the. two men personally. The
point made by the Davis men is that Sen
ator Davis In his candidacy for leader is
committed to the Hughes policies, his
political leader is committed to them in
general, and the men who are supporting
him ill tha Senate are. supporting him be
cause of. that, position. Senator. c Cpbb, on
the other hand, was picked up by Messrs.
Woodruff and Barnes, It is said, on the
assumption- ttiat he", ' a clean, . able man,
could be flectciby -their political influence
and would then be subservient to them
politically. This would give, them
same hold on the organization of the Sen- |
ate as they have on the Assembly through j
lit this line or reasoning they probably
did Senator Cobb an injustice, but the fact
remains that most of his support m the
Senate has come from the Woodruff-Barnes-
Ward coterie, barring a few personal
friends. Holden, of Syracuse, was at first
a Davis man, but Francis Hehdricks and
Ray B. Smith are understood to., have
switched -him to (^bb. . Grattan. Barnes's
man. is for Cobb; -as nr* Meade and
White, Aldridge'a men, and all the Brook
lyn Senators, Woodruff's men, except Sen
ator Travis. Emerson, a "racetrack He
publican," Is Cobb's campaign manager.
Allan, of Troy, Collins's man, Is counted
for Cobb, although on Hughes legislation
he has always voted with the Governor.
On the other Bide are the .tso-callou" in

tion consistently, and Hughes men like

At the recent conference the Cobb Sen
