The candidate was met at Cornwall,
five miles below here by Dr I,yman Abbott
and his sons Ijiwrencn and Ernest. Mr.
Straus hurried down the steps from the
car platform as soon as he had finished
speaking to .1tl ersons and grasped Dr.
Abbott's two hands.
"I was with T J. this morning; he made
a great showing in Washington," were
almost tho first words the Outlook editor
had to say to the candidate.
Mr, Straus spoke of his satisfaction
with the result of his week's campaigning,
and Dr. Abbott replied:
yes. the people are at last beginning
to understand the Progressive move
ment." Miss Alice R. ReHamy, the first woman
to be named on a committee at the Syra
cuse convention and who was known there
as "Tho Prettiest Delegate," boarded
tho campaigning special at Kingston
in the morning and was thereafter the
centre of attraction In the candidate's
party. She brought with her a special
silk campaign banner which she had made
in one day and which bore the legend
"The Progressive Party of Ulster County."
With her came her flancA Capt. Lucius
C. Tuckorman, Progressive county chair
man in Ulster. Miss Pollamy herself
admitted that she was engaged to the
captain, but declared that she was too
busy working for the Progressive cause
to think of getting married.
