HADLEY THE MAN
PRESIDENTWANTS
Tii ft. nnd Hilles Agree He
Should Take Sher
man's Place.
COMMITTEE FOR HIM
Telegrams From Members of
Republican National Body
Indicate Choice.
XO FINAL DECISION AS YET
Proxies From Absent Commit
teemen Must Be Secured
Wishes Not Binding.
Gov. Herbert S. Hadley of Missouri Is
the man whom a majority of the Re
publican National Committee favor as
successor to James R. Sherman as Presi
dent Taft's running mate at the head of
the Republican ticket.
Tres'.dcnt Taft made it clear to his
frlendj yesterday morning that Gov.
Hadley would bo acceptable to him.
Charles P. 1 lilies, chairman of the Na
tional Committee, showed Mr. Taft at
his breakfast table a list of committee
men who had tolegraphcd him In Gov.
Hadley's favor. The President Indi
cated that Gov. Hadley's name was
agreeable to him.
A definite conclusion was not arrived
at becauso the Republican leaders, in
cluding tho President and Mr. Utiles,
went to UUca to attend Mr. Sherman's
funcraL The question of a successor
to Mr. Sherman was discussed on the
way down t;om Ctlca, but no deflnlto
decision was arrived at.
It has been, Mr. Hlllcs's opinion ever
lnoe Mr. Sherman's Illness began to ap
pear serious that it would not be to tho
party's advantage to select a new can
dldato for the Vice-Presidency. He has
bellovod that the President should go
alone before the people at the polls next
Tuesday. If the Republican ticket is
successful then the national committee
can suggest a man to tho electors. In
any event, It is the electors under the
Constitution who will choose the Vive
ITesldent, no matter what tho national
commlt'M proposes.
.. ?e3T. can accept the National Com
infttec's recommendation or not, as they
choose. A suggestion of the National
Comraltteo Is not considered as binding
upon the electors as the choice of the
national convention.
It was explained that proxies from
absent members of the National Com-
' mltteo could not be secured in lens
than five days. A telegraphic expres
sion of preference would not be enougn
to -warrant members of the National
, Commltteo who live In the vicinity of
New York going ahead and naming a
successor to Mr. Sherman.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Hllles has
heard from most of the fifty-three mem
bers of the committee. A majority have
told him that they prefer Gov. Hadley.
The one course that the National Com
mittee could pursue In the present
Juncture, It was explained yesterday,
was to Indicate Its choice, which would
be made conclusive after election, in
accordance with the rules of voting un
der which the National Committee acts.
it was argued that such on expres
sion of opinion to all Intents and pur
poses would be acceptable to the voters
.is an official nomination. They could
then go to tho polls knowing whom
they were voting for when they cast
their ballots.
A number of Mr. Hllles's advisers
have told hltn nguln and again that
this Is the best way. They argued that
It would hazard tho success of the
ticket If the voters were asked to vote
blindly for an unnamed candidate. The
President. In his acquiescence In the
name of Gov. Hadley would seem to
lean the same way.
Gov. Hadley Is known to be a favorite
with many Republican voters. At the
Chicago convention IiIr boom was spon
taneous, nnd at one time he appeared
to bo the ono hopo of salvation for the
Republican party. It was nrgued then
that If tho two factions could agreo
upon him the party would be saved.
It was said at that time that Col. Roose
velt himself wbb tho man who put a
stick In the cogs nnd prevented an
agreement upon Hadley.
Against un expression of opinion by
the national committee In his favor nt
this time, It Is urgued that ho Is by no
menns certain of carrying his own State
for the Republicans. This argument of
weakness In Missouri Is known to bo a
factor In Mr. IIlllcs's mind, bending him
away from furthering Hadley's nomina
tion. The suggestion has been made that a
Western Progresslvoof the Cummins type
would bo a better vote getter than Gov.
Hadley. It was even proposed, nnd pro
posed seriously, that Senator l.a Kol
ctte, provided ho could bo Induced to
accept the Informal designation by tho
national committee, would be a power
ful nlil to tho Republican cause.
n the scorn that Pennsylvania Is
hv no means certain us a Republican
State, recognizing the great Roosevelt
-cnduncy In tho western counties, It
as argued yesterday that John Wann
umker would strengthen the ticket
thirit and would be n benefit to the He
publican cause throughout the coun
try. Tim nnme of cx-Vlce-Presldent Fulr
anks was suggested on similar
..Tumid. H was utgued that the Kulr
'.inkn hold on Indiana Is not (lead yet
unl that his presence as a running
unto to Mr. Taft would help to keep
that Stuto out of tho Progressive col
I'nn and prevent also tho election of
. Senator llevcrldge as Governor.
The ti'iiue of ex. Congressman Mcf'nll
.MaHMachnsetts also was proposed.
! .ill has a lurgn following, In eastern
ilut-MchiiHctls mid would be un asset
to tlic Republicans In the tight for that!
State 'on Tuesday.
It Ih probable the Republican leader
mm me i-resiucnt win decide on the
candidate to-day, or decide to lot the
t'eket go to the voters an It stands.

HISSING AUTO WRECK IN PARK
Doctor' Car Taken From Curb and
Abandoned by Tire Thieve.
When the police found the automo
bile owned by Dr. Fellowes Davis, Jr.,
In Central Purl; late last night a $100
tire was missing and the machine was
almost a wreck. It looked as though
It might have been run Into a sturdy
Uee or telegraph pole while speeding
Dr. Davis, Jr., stepped from his office
at 68 West Forty-seventh street on
his way to a patient's home. His ma.
chine, which he had left standing at the
curb, was not to be seen. He went
to the East Fifty-first street police sta
tlon nnd learned that the missing cur
had been found In Central Park.
The police believe the car had been'
stolen by some of the automobile thieves
who have been operating In various
parts of the city lately; that (he thieves
either purposely or accldently wrecked
tho car while driving through the park,
and then made away with the $100
tire, It being about the only article
on the machine that could be readily
detached and sold without fear of de
tectlon.
ACTOR SHOT IN STAGE FIGHT.
Waddlna- From llerolver Which

Thomas R. Mills. 33 years old, of S40
Manhattan avenue, who plays the part
of Gordon Lavlock In the stock com
pany which concluded a week's engage
ment ut H. F. Keith's Harlem Opera
House yesterday, was painfully wounded
In the last scene of the play last night
when the big pistol he was carrying

ding from the blank cartridge entered

a great fight and when tho time camo
to draw out his .44, he being a regular

LIFE SAVERS WATCH
Lone Survivor Lashed to
Schooner Mast Waves tiood
by at Sundown.
BATTLESHIP IS HELPLESS
Surf Throws Boats Back and
Sailor Is Too Weak to
Hold Life Lines.
Norfolk, Va Nov. 2. Lashed to the
mast, with apparently all chances of
being saved gone, the lone survivor of
the crew of the three masted schooner
John Maxwell, stranded a mile south
east of New Inlet life saving station.
wrapped himself In a pleco of the
schooner's ragged sail at sundown to
night and waved his hand to life savers
on shore, who stood silently watching
tho fight of the man against death,
unablo to lend a helping hand.
A few hundred yards away from the
fast sinking schooner stood the battle
ship Michigan and the tug Soroha, both
of them unablo to save the silent figure
in me rigging of the schooner.
Life savers made no less than fif
teen attempts to launch lifeboats to the
stranded vessel to-day, but each time
me nigh surf beat them back and cast
their frail little craft high on the beach.
Two life savers were caught beneath
tho boat as It was cast upon the beach
and painfully Injured.
When the life savers first saw the
Maxwell struggling In tho high seas
there wero two men clinging to the rig-
Ring. When they filled to launch a
lifeboat the life savers shot a line
to the stranded ship. The aim was true
and the line fell across the vessel. One
of tho men grabbed It, held It for Just
a second, then let It slip through his
fingers. He was too weak to hold it.
Again the life savers shot a lino over
tho vessel, but this time It fell short.
Then for the third, fourth and fifth
time the line was sent through the air,
but the men clinging to the rigging
were helpless and did not have tho
strength to grasp the line, the ono
thread between them and death.
While the life savers were making
ready to again try. to get the lino In
the hands of one of tho men on the
schooner they saw one of them throw
up his hands and fall from the rig
ging. He was swallowed up by the
seas.
The remaining survivor made several
attempts to grab the line but failed.
He could not hold It when It camo Ho
him and when it fell short he made no
signs.
Seas were breaking over the ship all
the time 'and she was being driven
closer nnd closer to shore. She Is now
breaking up and already big timbers
are floating aroundr while the wind Is'
blowing a forty mile gnle from the
northwest. It Is freezing cold, and even
If the storm abates before morning
there Is little chance of the silent man
In the rigging being found alive.
The Navy Department late to-day.
moved by the heroic attempts of the life
savers to reach the vessel and the hero
Ism of the men In her rigging, ordered
the Michigan to the scene to take off
If possible, the lone survivor. Later
the tug Sorona, one of the most power
ful In the navy, wus also despatched to
the scene, but was unable to give any
assistance.
The seus were too high to attempt to
launch a lifeboat and tho big ship
could do no'Mng but "stand by," while
the men on ier decks silently watched
the efforts of the flguro In the rigging
trying to encourage them to make the
attempt to save his life.
The Maxwell was commanded by Capt.
Godfrey. She carried a crow of eight
men, und was bound to Savannah from
Norfolk with a cargo of coal.

Balrd, aged 13, a student at the Du Pont
public BChool, on the outskirts of Wll
mlngton, was taken to tho University
of Pennsylvania Hospital at Phlladel
phla to-day to be operated on for a sup
posed broken neck.
The case has many peculiar features.
It Is charged by Miss Anna May linlrd,
a slater of the pupil, that the principal
of tho school, W. K. Yerger, Inflicted
tho Injury In chastising her. Although
an X-ray picture taken at tho hos
pltal here showed two fractured bones
In the girl's neck, It was announced
from the hospital In Philadelphia to
night that a fracture might not exist.
Another X-ray picture was taken to
day and It will determlno whether an
operation will bo necessary.
Mr. Yerger and his friends declare the
child's condltlqn Is not the result of if.
treatment by tho principal. Mrs. Ter

CUBAN ELECTION IN DOUBT.
Kach Side Claims Victory, hut Mcno-
eal fteema to Lead.
Sptctal Cable Dtfpateh to Tni St.
Havana. Nov. 2, Each side claims to
have won a victory In yesterday's elec
tion. The vote Is so close that It is Im
possible at this tlmo to say who has
been elected. "It is pretty certain that
Ocn. Mario Menocal, the Conservative
candidate, has carried the provinces of
Havana and Santa Clara,, but the result
In the other four provinces Is still
doubtful.
Returns received up to 9 P. M. give
this result: Orlente, Liberals, 31,425:
Conservatives, 31,492. Matanzas. Lib
erals, 23,755; Conservatives, 23,827.
Plnar del Rio, Liberals, 16,082: Con
servatives, 16,345. Santa Clara, Liberals,
27,482: Conservatives. 33,291. Camagucy,
Liberals, 11,578; Conservatives, 12.151.
Havana, Liberals, 33,710; Conserva
tives, 37,026. .
There are still sixty election pre
cincts upreported from Orlente, 140
from Santa Clara, thirteen from Matan
tas, sixty-six from Plnar del Rio and
sixty-one from Havana. The total
number of registered voters was 629,-
088.
Havana has twenty-seven members
of the electoral college, Plnar del Rio
fourteen, Matnnzas fifteen, Santa Clara
twenty-flve, Camagucy ten and Orlente
twenty-four. If Ocn. Menocal has car
ried Havana, Santa Clara and Cama
gucy he will bo elected, receiving 62
votes, while only 58 are needed.
'The returns so far total 205,963 votes,
which with those still unreported show
that only about 60 per cent, of those
who registered voted, although .there
was no trouble anywhere.
The closeness of the vote presents an
element of danger. Both sides arc mak
Ing charges of wholesale frauds, and It
Is admitted thut there was much "re
peating." The registration figures,
which ar more than one-quarter of
the entire population of the Island, were
evidently padded
Gen. Menocal has carried Camagucy
and Is almoBt certain to win Plnar del
Rio, which with Havana and Santa
Clara, In which his majority Is large.
will elect him easily.
Orlente Is still doubtful. Matanzas is
the only province which Senor Zayas,
the Liberal candidate, has surely car
rled.

Avalnat Weateheater I'roarcutor
Holmes Jones, a Yonkers lawyer, has
preferred charges to Gov. DIx against
District Attorney Francis A. Wlnslow
of Westchester. He charges the Dls
trlct Attorney with Intimidating Grand
Jurors, obtaining a false Indictment, at
tempted blackmail, holding up an Indict
ment to further the Interests of his
friends, and using his office to get
prlvnte business.
Mr. Wlnslow last night would only
say that the charges nre ridiculously
absurd, but It Is known that Mr. Jones's
charges folloTHd some litigation which
he has had wl.h Mrs. Caroline Dow over
the ownership of a barn. Mr. Jones al
leged thut the barn wus his, und he
moved It to his property, whereupon
District Attorney Wlnslow took the
matter up with the Grand Jury nnd
had Mr. Jones Indicted. Mr. Jones got
out on a writ.
Hot words have passed between the
two several times, und It is said that
Mr. Wlnslow even sent detectives to
Ruffalo, Mr. Jones's home town, to see
what they could learn about Mr. Jones's
past life.

Nkw Unu.NswicK, N. J., Nov. 2.
Solomon Jacobs, a broker, living
at 92 IUvcrsldo Drive, New York, was
killed near here this afternoon whon an
automobile In which he was riding with
Mrs. Jeanncttc Nell of Somervllto
smashed through the planking of a
small bridge which rfms across Green
brook, Union avenue, Hound Brook.
Mrs. Nell was thrown Into the brook
with Mr. Jacobs, but was only slightly
Injured.
Mr. Jacobs hud spent the ntternoon
culling upon Mrs. Nell, a widow, and
It was her automobile, a small runabout, I
In which they wero driving when tho
accident occurred. It Is thought the
bridge had defective Mooring and that
rotten planks had been weakened by
tho passage over them of a heavier
vehicle a short time before Mrs. Nell
and Jacobs started over the bridge.
The bridge Is a small affair, hardly
wide enough for twi wagons to pass,
and about fifty feet 1 ing.
As soon as the machine got fairly
upon the bridge some of the timbers
collapsed and the car pitched down
to the brook, fifteen feel below. In
the air It turned turtlo nnd fell on top
of Mr; Jacobs. Mrs. Nell was thrown
a few feet to the side and except for
bruises nnd a wetting was unhurt.
The water In the brook at this point
Is about three feet deep and Mrs. Nell
was able to wade ashore. Persons liv
ing near at hand telephoned for medi
cal assistance and then ran to get the
machine off Mr. Jacobs. They found
him at the bottom of the brook, plnn?a
down by the weight of the automobile.
He had been drowned and had been
unablo to save himself becauso the
back seat of the car had fallen across
his back.
Neighbors gave dry clothes to Mis.
Nell, who was able to go homo aft?r
sending word to Mr. Jacobs's home In
New York. The automobile, which was
a new one, was badly damaged, and
In falling It broke through a gas main,
which added to the excitement. Mr.
Jacobs's body was taken to Kdherton'n
undertaking establishment In Bound
Brook. w ff.v-
Mr. Jacobs had an office ut IS
Broadway nnd lived at 92 IUvcr
sldo Drive with his two unmarried sis
ters. He was about 65 years old and
single. He leaves two other sisters,
Mrs. Alexander Mayer nnd Mrs. Rose
berger, both of New York. Word of
the accident was received nt his home
early yesterday evening and two of
his relatives went to Bound Brook to
take charge of the body.
Mr. Jacobs went Into bankruptcy in
January, 19t0, with liabilities of $248.
042 and nominal assets of $905,687. He
wus at ono time president of the Mex
ican Sugar Refining Company, which
went bankrupt In 1909.

Mustapha Pasha, Nov, 1, 6 P. M., -
The Bulgarian artillery continues the
bombardment of the Turkish work op
the northwest front. The outflanking
and pursuit of the defeated Turks tow
ard Constantinople has already piv
greased so far that a Sedan (a complete
encircling of the Turkish army) may al
most certainly be prophesied.
Tho fall of Adrtanople may be ex
pected next week. It might have been
forced sooner by a ruthless bombard
ment, but King Ferdinand ordered thai
the city be spared. The siege has been
complete for soveral days and the fall
of Demetlka. whenco the Turk after
the defeat at KIrk-klllsaeh had taken
30000 men to the main army at t,ule
Burgas, removes all fear of Turkish In

London, Nov, 2. There ia an uncon
firmed report current In Sofia and re
peated In Prague papers, that Adrla
nople fell to the Bulgarians early Satur
day morning and 40,000 Turks were
enptured. The forts there have been
silenced, It is known, because the Turks
ran out of ammunition.
If this report Is true It Is no ur
prlsc to those who have followed the
war In the Balkans. The circle drawn
round tho ancient Turkish capital by
the ruthless Bulgars'ls complete.

come nfter the defeat of Kirk Kllisaeh,
removes all fear of Turkish Interrup
tion. Klghttng In front of Constantinople
still continues ns fiercely as ever, but
there ale no details. Military men
think It a possibility that tho Turks
may be able to hold their line from Visa
to Harll, where they are entrenching.
