whlrlwii.l eampalgn u'pstate. from whlch
Mr Hedges has Juat returned. and on the
reeults of whlch he reported tO his hear

The flrst stop and one of the most en
thuBlBStic of the evening was made at
KJamet Temple. Herk'mer street. near
' Nostrand avenue. Brooklyn. The en
trance of the candidate Into the hall was
the signal for an ent.buslastic reception,
i whlch was duplicated with the appear
' ance of former Vic-President Charles W.
Falrbanks. who was another sp?aker of
the evening. Here. whlle he was fresh.
Mr Hedges's treatmcr.t of political .ssues
and the mlsconceptlons of his opponents
was splrlted and drew forth repeated
laughter and applause.
Mr. Hedges said.
The contest in tb, present elee'lon ls
between Tammany Hall and the state of
' New York. so far w this state is con
cerned. I take the worda of my ofponent
Mr. Sulzer. that Tammany Ha?l" 1,h,(5
Democratlc party. and Tatnman Hall
needs no defVnce. That ls not ?hatl
have observed from my yeare Of JnjOWl
ed*e of the orKanlzation ln the clty i
nave been teuejt to belleve tjat a^vern
ment is somethlng to llve under. Tam?
many treats It as somelhlng to Hve on.
Hia Warning to Tammany.
I am proud to say that Tammany Hall
doesn't care for m< for Governor. I
respect her for ber frankr.esa. and II I
am Governor and my strength holds out.
Ml think lt wlll. I wlll aee that some
of those distinguiehed statesmen who
make up Tammany Hall return to the
work of decent labor. lf they have nol
forgotten how to employ lt, and leave
the state to go on her way.
wbiie Vioe-Prealdenl Falrbanhn, whose
receptlon was an .nthusiastic one. was
addjeealng the maanng on the ellgibility
of Mr. Hedges for tbe ofhc e of Governor
thai gentleman was making his second
long jump, from Brooklyn to Niblo's.Har
den. 170th street and Thlrd avenue, Tbe
Bronx, where less than three-quart
an hour after be had flnlshed his flrat
apeech he was talking to another large
and appreclative assrrnhlage.
"I have Juat finlshed a tour of tle
state." Mr. Hedges declared. ajald laugh?
ter from the audience, "wlthout flnding
lt necessaiy to call any man a llar, and
I lntend to cloae the eampalgn in the feame
fashlon. The result of my travel
k been to flnd that the state la strong in
Ikits eupport for the principles of the Re
W ptiblican party, and it now only remalns
r for this clty to cor.tinue the supp'. r."
Mr. Sulzer and his allegiance to Tam?
many Hall drew forth a Parthian shot
from the speakt.- at this meeting He
said: .
It has been said that Mr. Sulzer, my
dlstlngui.-hed opponent, was nomlnated ty
Mr Murphy 1 don't care whether he
was or whether be was nom:r:ated ln
Bpite of him I aimply know that no man
can be a part ol the mllitant craanl
eation of Tammany Hall and go from
there to the Governors chair and raite
iu dignity ty one inch.
More fltngs at the opposltion grow out
of the next meeting, at llajeetle Ball,
125th street, near Lezlngton ai
where Jesse J. Goldberg, chalrman of tbe
meetlng, characterized the Repnbllcaa
c?ndloate for Oovernor as a humortst.
Mv friend Governor I>lx sald some
weeks ago." Mr. Hedgea sald tn reply,
"that my nomlnatlon for tbe efltoa in
jocted a bit of bomor into tlie eampalgn,
i would rather have a aanaa of bomor
and be nomlnated than to ba turned down
and be a tragedian."
Other stops were made by the Hedges
party at Bmpire Hall. UMl street. near
EJghth avenue, and the Lenox Caalno,
llSth street nnd Lenos avenue, where in
each case the candidate ebanv
mer blows at what he doolarod was
-Tammany HaU'e propoaltloa that tbe
Btate governmtnt Is BO-iethlag lo glve
work to those who have no other means
of lleetthood."
At C'arnegle Hall the final stop of the
evening wiu made, where a "good rogda"
rally, under the auspices of the Auto
Trade Ltague, was talk-d to order at 9

Cheerlng, which lasted for many
mlnutea, greeted Mr. Hedges when ha ep
jeared at the hall. shortly before 11
o'clock. Here he was greeted with a
demonstration that included lndlvldual
greetlngs from admlrers. Among the
qucetlons which followed his appearance
was one deallng with the relation of the
national guard of the state and polltlcs.
Thls the speaker arftwercd by declarlng
that he would never allow it to be put

HAS HOPE FOR THIS CITY
Vice-Presidential Candidate, at
Buffalo, Thinks It "May
Be Regenerated."
[By T#Iegraph to Tha Trlbune. 1
Buffalo. Nov. 1.?Governor Hlram John?
son of Caiifornla set up Wall Street and
Woodrow WIlBon as twin targets in hla
speech at Old Oonventlon Hall tOMilght
and proceeded to shoot both full of holes.
An audience of tlve thousand personu
cheered every blow of his attack on "the
inetrests." Apparently Wall Street has
not a alngle friend in Buffalo. The thlrd
party candidate for Vice-President took a
portlon of Governor Wllaon s Madlson
Square Garden speech aa tbe baaia of Ua
attack. He .-aid.
Laat night the Democratlc candidate,
ln a bousuul mootl, guve utterance to a
partlcular statement that was enllght'n
Ing from certain asptcts. ln order that
I may quote him correctly I wlll read
his remarka as quoted in the preat. He
apoke as t'ollows:
"The gentlemen down in Wall Street
don't bet live to one on their own de
strnction, atid they don't go to their
I buelresa smillng and complacent when
tli?y expect a deluge next week."
What does he mean? He meant, of
eouree, thut Wall Street waa bettlng upon
his succeh.s, and upon contemplatlon of
his bcasted success waa golng to busl?
ness smlllng and complacent, knowlng
that no Injury would Le done to Wall
Street by reason of his election. Laat
nlght this confesalon fell from hla Upa
In the prlde of his receptlon. Of course,
Wall Street has no fear of the Demo?
cratlc party. Wall 8treet and every
other interest ln thls country that ls
talnte.t with dlalionest success fear only
one man. They know his dynamtc force
and courage wlll check their aggreaalons.
Saya Wilson ls Revealed.
The man that Wall Street fears Is Theo
, dore Roosevelt. When Mr. Wlison made
1 that confeeeton he relleved ua from the
I neccflalty of maklng Inferencea and draw
Ing concluiiona because he toid Just where
he stood and, what is more. Juat where
Wall BUreet stands ln thla contest.
Governor Johnson added:
"You'll lind aome of the cunnlng New
York newapaperfl have omltted thls part
Of the speech."
The Bpeaker wnt on to compare the
meetlnga of the rtval candldates In Madl
Bon H^uare Qarden. Of the Rooaevelt
meetlng, he sald that from 50,000 to 100,000
I people were unabtit to get ln. "They
'. needad Jio cheer leader; no band waa
:.., >Ied to play 'Tammany' durlng any part
| of that jneetlng " The Roosevelt demon
istratlon Insplred i allfornia's Governor 1
j with tbe hope that New York Clty Itself
i mlgbt ba regenerated. He eald:
Judgmg from th* meetlngs ln Madlaon
I Bquare Qarden, New York Clty Itself
may be regenerated by thls eampalgn.
; That Bounda almost ImpoeetMe, I know,
! bui perhape the millennlum ls really on its
way and New York is to be regenerated j
end rehabtlltated polltlcaliy.
Buffalo did Its beat to emulate Madlson
Square Garden. It made a brave effort
to equal the record for contlnuouB cheer
Ing whlch the Wilson men set. It fell
- Ml by B ?ood many mlnutes, but local
'clockera" sald that the twenty-flve-mln
ute hubbub waa at leaat a county record
f,,r a rally. Governor Johnson was in
radlcal humor. He etood on the plat
form Of his party durlng the greater part
of the meetlng, but once or twice he
could not reslst the temptatlon of hopplng
hlgher and clleking his heels together out
of pure exuberance. In dlscussing the
? piank calllng for the abollton of chlld
labor, he sald:
I would P> much further, ae far aa

what you call It. but I would use the

predletlon yesterday by announclng that
Oovernor Wllaon would carry the State
of New York by no lesa than 200,000
plurallty, Mr. Mack sald:
From Information at land, coming from
e\ery section of the etate, there Ib no
qieatlon ln my mind but we are enterlng
the h,.me stretch In New York, with
Taft ind Roosevelt runnlng about neck
atid neck The ambltlon of both wlngs
ol the Hepubllcan party now seems to
be to eee Whlch one of them wlll eapturo
the 1 iruest number of Republican votee.
Now, thts can mean but one thlng. and
from my peraonal observatlon I am con
fldenl that lt means that Governor Wu?
?on wlll come down to The Rronx with a
plurallty of from tlftv thouBand to sixty
thousand. Wllaon wlll poll a tremendous
v,te ln Greater New York, and lt Ib dlfn
cult to flgure how his plurallty In thlB
Mate will be kss than two hundred
thoueend.
Tbouaanda of regular Republlcans, who
are now anxlous to see their party per
petuated and who love their old party
for what it haa meant to them, boy and
man, ln the past, are satlstied now, on
the ave Of election, that 1'roaldent Taft
has no show of eaitylag New York State
or of eleotkm, and wlll vote for Wilson and
Marshall, In order to make the defeat of
the Bull Mooee candtdate more certain
and ln order to perpetuate the party of
their fathera.
At the meetlng of the exeeutive com?
mittee of the Democratlc County Com?
