Will H. Hays

Of His Party

CHICAGO, Jan. 12.?Among thc out?
standing features of the meeting of thc
Republican Xational Committee nt. the
Congress Hotel nothing is plainor than
the fact that Will H. Hays for the
prcsent, now that Colonel Roosevelt
is ironc. is the leader of the party.
This is partly due to the mechanics
of the situation and part'y to the suc
cess which has attended the young
statesman from Indiana since last Feb?
ruary 1- at St. Louis. when he became
Will H. Hays is modest but not
retiring. Study of "retiring" has no
place in thc curriculum of thc Indiana
school of politics. as conducted by
Hays, Governor Goodrich, Senators
Watson and Xew and the rank and
Thc Republican organization there
has been remarkably successful in re?
tiring the Democrats, but they do not
themselves rctire. Chairman Hays has
driven the national committee ma?
chine literally almost day and night
for the last clcvcn months. When
Rudolph K. Hynicka, of Ohio.on Friday
moved that thc chairman have full au?
thority to appoint the ten members
of the executive committee and "such
other committees as he may deem nec?
essary," it meant that Chairman Hays
\\;.s not to be interfered with in the
control of the mechanics ot' tlie na?
He Likes to Consult
It probably is a fact that r.o chair?
man ever went to thc pains that is
daily exercised by Chairman Hays to
consult with his colleagues in the com?
mittee. Chairman Hays would have
much preferrcd that Hynicka's resolu?
tion should not have beon offered, but
it was offered. a:ui adopted without a
Another signilicant feature of the
meetinj: was the "moving in" ot' thc
women members oi' the Woman's Xa?
tional Executive Committee. It is one
thing to act in an advisory capacity,
hut it is another tiiin.c: to have a vote.
As stated in Thc Tribune yesterday,
Miss Mary Garrett Hay, of Xev.- York,
held the proxy of Gunder Plson, of
North Dakota, and Miss Josephine
Preston, of Washington. that ot' S. A.

Fried in Hut Here
By Salvation Army
After Dedication iu Union
Square Adjutant McAllis
ter Teaches Novices to
Mix Toothsome Batter
If you followed your nose in Union
i Square .yesterday, around behind the
camouflaged battleship to the Broad?
way side, you came upon a little white
i cottage nestling under the elm trees,
and from that little white cottage came
not only the smell, but the sound of
i sizzling fat and the spatter of dough
nut.s in a ten-quart pail, and if you
then followed this smell and the sound
you found Adjutant Violet McAllister,
, with flour on her nose and a great
j white apron over her khaki uniform,
; frying Salvation Army doughnuts right
I here in little old Xew York. just as ii'
she were back in the trenches.
Around her clustered m great crowd
of doughnut boys. grabbing for the hot,
rings, and over iira corner the Salva- j
tionists were singing "Oh, God, our
help in ages nast."
lt was the iirsf doughnut day of the. I
new Salvation Army hut in Union j
Square, and there were formal exer
cises at noon to dedieate the new rest
room for soldiers and sailors. Ljeu- I
tenant Joseph F. Wright. representing j
Admiral Usher, of the Brooklyn navy j
yard, and Colonel William Mclntyre, of i
the Salvation Army, made the speeches,
and the banfJ of the battleship Recruit
furnished the music and got a good
share of the first batch of doughnuts.
Adjutant McAllister ar.d Adjutant
Helen Purveyance fried 1,000 dough?
nuts, and between batches gave los
sons to the novices who are to take
their places after they get the knf.ck
of making the real trench kind; but
the veterans had to keep out ot' sight
p.fter thc first hour, because the dough?
nut boys wouldn't go 'way, preferringto
lean over the counter and start one of
those "Were you in Bordeaux?" con
versations and the doughnuts almost
Lurned up. ;
The hut will be open every day for
reading, writing ano gossip, with
doughnuts and coffee for IU cent3 to
all men in uniform.
Sisson Sounds Warning
New York Financier Says Kadi
vals Would Wreck Both
Capital and Labor
BOSTON-, Jan. 10. -The business and
industrial world would be turned up
sidc down, investors' interests would
be wiped out and labor vouid tind its
present rights and privirfeges gone if
Bolshevism should prevail in this
country. Francis II. Sisson. vice-presi
di nt of the Guaranty Trust Company '
ot' New York, said to-day in warning;
business men to guard against chaos !
and mob rule. Mr. Sisson snoke at a I
meeting held under the auspiccs of the '
Maspachusetts Chamber of Commerce.
"We business men of America are j
standing to-day in the front line I
trenches of private ownership of prop-j
crty, of freedom and democracy in
business and government. Let us not l
're deceived into giving ground by tlie |
specious propaganda of visionarics or i
demagogucs. Privajc ownership will
have to fight for its very life.
"Labor itself should be on its guard !
to forestall such possibilities, for
labor has a.-> much at stakc and is j
just as jealous of our individual and
colleetive libertics as any other elc- ]
ment in our social organization."
Mr. Sisson also spoke in opposition j
to government ownership of railroads
and other pubiic utilitics. I
Fight on Election
Of Governor Smith
Tells Glynn It Is Not Prob?
able Full Recount Would
Give Him Majority; Chair?
man Scores Tally Officials
Ex-Governor Whitman's contest of
the. election of Governor Smith has!
been dropped. George A. Glynn,.chair-1
man of the Republican State Com-'
mittee, announced thc decision yester-l
day, making pubiic letters which
passed between him and Mr. Whitman
Concerning the examination oi" thc
. "Unless the State Committee dis-.
agrees with me," Mr. Whitman wrote,
"I ain disinclincd to approve a con
ti'nuance of the inspection." Continu?
lng, he wrote:
"Had my opponent's majorityvbeen
as it appeared at the time of your first
communication, namely about 7,000, i
should no'. hesitate to consent to a
continuance of the inspection through?
out thc city and states, as I have no
doubt that that majority would have
been overcome. It is, of course, pos?
sible, though to my mind cxtremely un
likely, that an examination of every
bullot box throughout the state might
result in the overcoming of thc ap-:
parent majority of 14,000.
Glynn Accuses Ballot Handlers
Mr. Glynn had said in his lettcr to
"The result shows a net gain in
favor of the .Republican candidate for
Governor six votes io an election dis-,
trict. i might call attention to thc fact
that the districts examined were not
picked, but were taken in tho regular
order. beginning with the lst District.
"If this average were maintained in '
the ~,629 election districts of greater
New York thc Republican candidate
would gain 15,771 votes, a number suf?
ficient to offset the returned majority'
for the Democratic candidate for Gov- j
"Thc examination discloses the fact
that many inspectors are incompetent,
that many wilfully violate the law, and :
that the law lacks safe^uards to securc
an honest" vote.
"The examination vcrified the com- ;
pto.int made to the committee that bal- :
lots in some districts had been handled
seven and eight times. with a loss to
the Republican candidate for Governor
as compared with thc original figures.
It was found in these districts' that
hundreds of ballots had been invali
dated by double cross marks and de
facement in the Governor's group, and
that there was no resemblancc be?
tween tlie cross marks when two were
made, indicating. that the elector had
not marked twice.
Wants Further Safcguards
| "lt was found that a large percent
I age of the voicl ballots which should
I be placed in thc official envelopes pro
! vided I'or that purpose were returned
: to the ballot boxes and a great many
j actually counted for the Democratic
candidate for Governor.
\ "The State Committee believes that
i the disclosurcs of the examination
I should result in the enactment of laws
j for the safeguarding of the ballot and
! an amendment. of the law relating to
contests in elections.
"An examination ot' all the ballots
oT greater New York would $30,000.
An action in the courts to pjrove t'tle
to a state office would cost more than
j $200,000 and might readily extend over
two years.. Under the law this Co.-,t '
must be borne by the candidate."
