Such Republicans »- were willing to dis

said they thought the retirement of Mr.
Sherman at this time would be the solution
of the problem.
"The withdrawal of Vice-President Sher

mendable and praiseworthy." said Assem
blyman Andrew V. Murray. "It would in
no sense detract from his dignity or lessen
respect for him. The members of the state

'"The issue Is government of, by and for

the fullest measure of public conlidence,

PRAISE FOR MR. TAFT
John Hays Hammond Calls Him
Most Sagacious Executive.
Cleveland. Aug. - 1 " 1 With the statement
that President Taft was one of the most
able and sagacious of the Executives of
the United States. John Hays Hammond
made a vigorous defence of the administra
tion to-day at the annual outing of the
Cuyahoga County League of Republican
Mr. Hammond justified Mr. Taffs support
of the Aldrich-Cannon section of the party
on the ground that if he had plunged into
a Republican civil war his lour years* term
.<: office would have been barren of re
sults, and not one of his campaign pledges
could have been carried out. Mr. Ham
mond said in part:
The people have come to regard President
Tan as a man of indomitable courage and
Inflexible determination. In th? t-ariy part
of his administration it used to be fre
quently asserted that President Taft did
not understand the political game. It is
quite true that ue dyes not play "good
politics ' according to the concepts of pot
house politicians, in that he does not
subordinate questions of national impor
tance to those of party expediency, or
even to those of sell-aggrandizement, but
recent events must have impressed it on
the minds of all critics that the President
has a masterful grasp of political affairs
nd of political methods. '
It has also been asserted by critics of the
administration that the President was
being unduly influenced and imposed, upon
by what was alleged to ' be- the- unholy
He has been criticised severely for hav
ing any intercourse- with that faction of
the party; but, fortunately, the President
has wisely preferred not to assume a self
righteous' attitude and not to decline the
co-operation of Republican? of whatever
faction, when such assistance would avail
to insure the enactment of needed legisla-
It required admirable moral courage and
farsisrhted statesmanship for President Taft
to pursue the course he did pursue. Any
other course would have resulted In four
years of futile Republican administration.
Mr. Hammond asserted that all talk of a
new party was absurd, as such a move
ment would 'die at its birth for lack of
popular support. He declared that there
was no possibility of any man save Mr.
Tatt receiving the next Republican nomina
tion for President, and scouted the idea of
the Democrats obtaining control of Con
gress, on account of what he termed their
failure to offer the people any definite pro
FEATHERSON TO STEP DOWN
Friends Say Tammany Leader in
20th Will Soon Retire.
Frk nds of Maurice Featherson. Tam
leader of the 20th District, say he
has told them he intended to quit poli
' let whoever desired the leadership
: • ■ district take it. Featherson men
think William Shannon, who has been the
s first lieutenant, probably will sue
to the leadership. Featherson was
: mwh yesterday. His men at the
tee <*lub didn't care to discuss his
n tin ment.
Fen thereon in recent years has become
known as the bitterest anti-Murphy man
in Tammany. Several primary contests
nave been made against him by Murphy
• . ;t lie has managed to hang on to
bis leadership despite them. His reason
for Riving it up now. it Is said, is to "give
the young fellows a chance." Featherson
Is forty-nine years old, but doesn't look it.
He is rated as wealthy. His chief occupa
tion now Is engineering real estate deals.
Twice he was elected Senator.
ruder the Tirst Mot'lellun administration
he was appointed Dock Commissioner, by
grace of <"harles F. Murphy. When Mc-
Clellan broke with Murphy Featherson
st;'-k to the Mayor. Thus his friendship
with Ifurphy went to smash, and Tammany
Hall never was warm to him thereafter.
He expects to go to the state covention
hemline the delegates from his district, and
to work as usual for the Democratic ticket
in the campaign. His retirement is sched
uled to take place on January 1 of next

HART ATTACKS SHERMAN
Says Vice-President Knew of
DAVENPORT GIVES VIEWS
Senator Declares Direct Primary
Issue Is Only Phase of
T'tica. tt. V . Auk. 2>.-At the Sattirdny
afternoon luncheon of the Republican
League in this city to-day ex-AssemWy
mnn Hart, who has returned from a visit
to Theodora Roosevelt in New York, de
clared that the vote of the state com
mittr« whirh chose Mr. Sherman for tem
porary chairman of the convention was
"cooked up" Senator Davenport als>
spoke in criticism of affairs in Albany. Ir.
the course) of his speech Mr. Hart said:
•I assert that Mr. Sherman knew full
well that it was Mr. Taffs wish that no
move be made toward choosing a tem
porary chairman without th© fullest <-on
eultation with Mr. Roosevelt. A telegram
from Mr. Taft to Mr. Sherman to this ef
fect appears to have been suppressed, for
nothing has been heard of it. I ask Mr.
Sherman if it is not true that, in spite of
knowing that Mr. Roosevelt l.id shown a
willingness to act as temporary chairman,
and in the face of Mr. Taffs telegram, he
personally solicited votes for as
temporary chairman on Monday ni^ht i
New York < ; ity. Mr. Sherman, by lending
himself to this act of pettiest politics and
by insisting upon holding the appointment
as convention chairman. If he can hold it.
has allied himself openly with the WoosV
ruff-Barnes element and has threatened
the disruption of th© party in the state."
•The struggle within the Republican
party in this stale," said Senator Davtii
port. "has come to a point where thf direc*
primary issue, although a very important
phase, is only a phase of the contest. It is
ai important means to an <=-nd. But there
is something more than that involved in
this titanic contest for control in this State
of New York. Why are the destroyers of
tnV Republican party in th<* state so bold
and defiant of the pin in and decent senti
ment of the people? There la more involved
than loss of power through the direct
primary. What is involved, as every man
who knows the internal conditions is aware,
is tiie question of whether government and
legislation and certain of the departments
of state at Albany shaJl continue to 1>? u?-ed
as ii K''»">d thing by the few and the shrewd
"It is the question of whether private
land companies shall make exorbitant
profits by buying land at a bargain and
selling it to the state through the agency
and with tiie approval of political friends
who happen to be in places of public trust,
and it is the question of whether the de
partments of state shall be used as a
base of supplies for political and private
"It is the question of whether it shall be
necessary for another fearless Governor to
scrutlnice certain kinds of legislation with
the eye of a hawk because of the ingenious
and subtle influences which are at work
upon that legislation against the interests
of the people. It is not only the power
over politics, but the power over the re
sources of governr.K-nt which is at staKe.
And it is for that reason among others
that certain men are willing to fight to the
last ditch th* onward movement of the Re
publican party and of the people. They
would rather see the state turned over to
the Democrats than to lose that power.
And th^y wish to have in the Legislature
at Albany only pliant tools, who. either
through lack of information or through
weakness of character, can be counted on
to do their bidding in legislative emer

ages and has a flttle spare time on next
Saturday to come to the Morrisar.ia court
on that morning and decide a case for
him When it comes to saying whether a
dog is one year or ten years old the magis
There are other questions for the public
spirited citizen and dog fancier in one to
determine. Whether the dog's name is
Tiger or Frenchy, and is it possible for a
dog to have an alias, thus accounting in a
way for his ans we' ing to two names

FIGHT PICTURES LEGAL
Attorney General Holds They Do
Not Violate Law of State.
Albany. Aug. 29. — Attorney General
P'MaQey, in an opinion sent to-day to
Governor Hughes, holds that exhibitions
Of the Jeffries -Johnson right pictures are
not a violation of the pt-ruil law of the
state; that such exhibitions do not offend
public decency In the sen**.- in which those
words are used in tire Penal Cod* 1 , and that
they do not constitute an immoral exhibi
tion or show
"If, however," says the opinion, "such |
exhibitions, as a matter of fact, tended to i
arouse race prejudice or to instigate any j
considerable number of persons to deeds of ;
violence, they would, of course, become :
public nuisances as endangering the com
fort, repose and safety of the community i
and would be violative of the penal law.
"I have not overlooked the public policy
Of this state as declared in Section 1..10 of
the penal law. prohibiting the holding of
prizefights within this state, nor those- j
decisions In several other states in which
it is held that the giving of a prizefight ■
could be enjoined on the ground that it Is '
a public nuisance. But in mv opinion there
if a difference in the effect upon specta- '
lor* of an actual prizefight and of th« mere !
visual representation of such a contest."
