t'ol Roosevelt expressed the caustic
rpinlon that those whom he attacked
vt re "counsel against the people of the
t niteel States." He declared that they
k.il withheld their criticism until the
i of election, presuming he wuul.l
l..ue no time to reply.
In his defence the Colonel makes use
V n decision reported In the I.'tw
tiurnnl of to-day In which the court
'trr to the Knlseley case and says
'iat this case was virtually overrulod i
by siihsf nuent decisions and proceeds
m render n decision flntly against It.
Col. Roosevelt's speech was ns follows:
1 wish to devote n few minutes to certain
gentlemen of the oilier side who answered
niv Madison Square speech this afternoon
o that, I suppose, they thtmvlit I rould
mt make any reply ti their answer. I
i'h to slnlo rlitlit at the outset that them

It will Ik too late fur him to reply.

mi Friday nicht H.cuM-iric the cruel In-.iii-tioes
done airnin and again to worklng
inen nnd workini; women hy certain de-
cl-lont of the t'ourl of Appeal".
I am intornied that these four gentlemen
Attacked the statements as being contrary
to both the facts and the law. Tho first
nas the case of the tonement house elsnr
manufacturer. Now I will renl to you
w hat is snil by one of the women who knows
the condition of tenement house llfe'as few
other women, and as hanlly any man,
knows them, by Florence Kelly In a book

lation," nnil I cordially commend to Mr.
Itoot and his associates who signed his
protest to study that tiook and to ponder
what is nieint by the word "ethical" In
connection w Ith legislation.
Of the Jacob cas, to which I referred,
Mrs. Kelly says: "To tho decision of the
t'ourt of Appeals in the case In re Jacobs
is directly dun the cuntlnuance of the
tenement manufacture and of the sweating
system in the t'nited States and its present
pievalence In New York "
'I hat is the statement of a woman who,
as regards knowledge of tenement house
conditions, knows s't much more tli.in those
four Kre.it corporation lawyers that her
little finger Is thicker than their loins when
you come to study w hat they know and what
she knows of the subject of which they
hao ignorantly presumed to speak.
As to the Knisely else, to which I nNt
leferred, these four great coriwration
It vera s.i Id to-day that the decision of the
Court of Appeals In that case was in accord

the court refers to the Knlsely case, and
says that it has been la reel)- uualllled, if not
xirtnally overruled, by a subsequent' de

At Miuuola in n.tent on the fair grounds

At Mineola ho spoke for more than an
hour, and was compelled to make a rapid
i ('turn trip in order to have dinnor nt

This mornitiR Col. Roosevelt Rnvo out
tho following statement, prompted by
n report which had reached him to the
effect that some of the Republicans were
ndvisitift their followers to vote forWilson
if they had any doubts:
"Several gentlemen have told me
that certnln of the lesser bosses, Mr.
Ramos's henchmen, Sir. Ahe Gruber
for Instance, hnvo rocrntlv been nnh-
llell mil-lultn IH,.tr lini..,-., t,. fnln 11ml
Democratic ticket If they did not feel
like voting the Republican ticket.
This Is Intensely Interesting ns a fresh
proof of how. close and Intimate the
alliance Is between the mnchlnes of
the two old parties nnd their utter In
difference to principles If they can only
heat the Progressives. Mr. Gruber's
attitude merely Illustrates anew what
has already been shown by the con
duct of Messrs. I'enrose, Harnes nnd
Crane nnd the other Republican bosses
In New Jersey, Illinois nnd Indiana,
precisely as In Kansas, California und
Oregon, that they have not the slightest
expectation of winning this election
and that their one purpose Is directly
or lndlrectly'to old the Democrats In
order that tho Piogresslvcs may he
beaten. Financiers and bosses of this
type are really entirely nonpartisan In
their feelings. The men mentioned nom
inally he-long to the Republican party,
but they know that they can always
make terms with corresponding bosses
of the Denufcratlc party, and that If
they cannot keep their own party In
their own control and nt the same time
In control of the nation, then the next
best thing from their standpoint is to
put Democratic bosses In control of the
nation. When the Abe Grubers. without
regard to party, are both ready and
eager to support cither of the old par
ties to beat the Progressive movement,
then It Is surely time for nil honest nnd
decent citizens without regard to past
polittcal affiliations to support the Pro
"This Is In no ordinary sense of the
word a mere partisan movement. It
Is a movement for honesty nnd decency
nnd for fair play In tho world of In
dustry no less than In the world of
politics.- And we have the right to ap
peal to all good citizens to support It."

WEST SIDE TO BRONX
t'niitliilatc Winds l'p His Cain
pnio'ii With a h'lyinp:
Job Hedges wound up his campaign
last night by talking to tlio people of
The Bronx. He. told them that they
deserved a square deal at Albany and
tlwt he was going to se that they got it.
At tho four places which he talked, two
of them in tlio open air, there were tho
best crowds he has had awaiting him
and when he had finished thiiy were
not backward in showing their pleasure.
In Mr. Hedges' mind the election
to-day is a contest between Mr. Suler
and himself; lietween Tammany control
in Albany and a new state of things. He
mi id he hnd great respect for Mr. Straus,
but couldn't hew how ho was the right
man for Governor und, what's more, ho
couldn't see how In the world ho was
going to bo elected,
1 know Mr. Straus I) etter than a grea
many men." he said, "and I can applaud
him for his upright conduct; but I himply
submit that for him to bo elected Governor
ho must get n majority of tho Democratic
voles and a majority of thu Republican
votes, He cannot do thai There can
bo no progress in this Stale politically
until we get rid of the present govern
ment at Albany, and I wiy that h man
in order to muko his voto effect he lias
got to vote for Mr. Sulzer or myself "
Hefore Mr Hedges made his excursion
into 'Die Bronx ho went to Abingdon
Kquaro nnd told the people of William
Sulzer's own district that he thought
it was aboul I lino for the Stale to ceaso
being u pasturo ground in which the
Tammany men lould fatten. He said.
"If you people down hero do us well as
tlio good people up htnte are going todo
lo.morrow il v'o just coma down from
Kingston and 1 know) (hero won't l any
doubt about it. Those gentlemen who
have been luxuriating at Hiriy for the
past two years will have to i, hack to
morn normal oinplov-ment . I know tho
way to help send them buck. In fact Tain-,
many men tuemseiven Know mat so well
that, according to leli.iblo information
which has roine to mo, iIiomi Tammany
men do not wont mo elected Governor
"I don't blame Taiiiiuauy Hall a bit
for this. If I worn Tummauy Hull 1
would not hnvo anything to do with inn
ut all. I huvo an idea I hat this State was
created before Tummauy Hall was, and
that it was not created lor the purposo
of having Tammany Hall live off of it."
Tho Republican candidate remarked
at one stop that he didn't realize the dis
tances between points in Manhattan and
Tho Bronx could bo so great until he
bin I it proved to him by tho automobile
rido from Klghlh street and Kighth
uvenuo to 213th street mid White Pluins
nvenun. When Mr. Hedges got his breath
after that long jaunt ho was whizzed out
to McKinley Squarn at lfl'lth street Krot'n
there ho went to Camp Taff on Knst lllilh

FEW WARRANTS ARE OUT
Honest Rnllot Association Gives
Details of Colonizing on
The Honest Ballot Association last
night Issued n stntemcnt saying Hint
more than live thousand repeaters nnd
floaters have been brought to the city
for the purpose of voting fraudulently
nt tho polls to-day. At the same time
District Attorney Whitman, the Sti.te
Superintendent of Elections and the
Cly Hoard of Elections declared that ro
rar ns ii nnu nen neveiopcu me election
gave every Indication of being as clean
as any Presidential election In history.
According to the Honest Rallot Asso
ciation, Hums detectives and their own
members had discovered that the fi.OOO
men had been planted In a row of fur
nished room houses along btuyvesant,
East Fourteenth, East Eighteenth, West
Eighteenth, West Thirty-sixth and
West Thirty-seventh streets. Many of
the houses, it was said, were those
known ns disorderly by the police, some
of which had been many times raided.
There is n particularly large colony In
Fourth. Ninth. Tenth and Eleventh
streets east of Third avenue, the state
ment asserted. '
Continuing, without shlng any
names, It said that a prizefighter ha-s
been employed with his rang to make
trouble In the vicinity of Fifteenth
street and Eighth nvenue to-day In
order to Intimidate watchers. If there
Is trouble to-ilay each member of the
band will receive MO. while he will get

The 1(1)0 watchers of the association
will go on duty as soon as the polls
open this morning. It was stated, and
each man will be armed with a card
Index which will describe the man who
registered under the name. If the name,
of the man or his description does not
correspond a challenge will be made und
a charge preferred against the voter.
Members of the association and the
Rums men Inst night were anxious that
a mistake In the wording of their $G,000
reward, published yesterday morning, be
rectified. In setting forth the quallllcn
tlons for a voter It stated that a "six
months" residence in the county was
necessary. The law reads four months.
So soon as State Superintendent of
Elections Vuorhls read this he got In
communication with the Burns agency
nnd nil others who might have had any
thing t do with the matter and talked
very plainly about possible Intimidation
and the like.
"It was a mistake." said W. J. Hunu
hist night, "a silly mistake. We are
correcting It In every way possible and
we certainly do not want anybody de
prived of a vote because of that mis
take." Mr. Whitman, who has gone over tha

and everybody else concerned, an-1

There was much curiosity nt the
Crlmlnul f'ourts llulldlng over the way
In which n warrant could be served.
The Mnyor's order, through the I'ollce
Commissioner, requires that policemen
retnuln 100 feet away from the polls,
The question was how a policeman could
serve n warrant on nn Illegal voter In
the election booth. The only way out
of It, It was thought, wos for u citi
zen lo nvnll himself of tho rlghtjo ar
rest a felon In tho act. some watcner.s

they would attempt to take In custody

There wero several arrests and ar

Murphy wns brought to court by Detec

Attorney s staff and by Ervln J. Smith
assistant manager of tlio Burns Detective
Agency. Andrew Colvin, the notary
public, told the court that Murphy early
yesterday morning mado tho affidavit
at his own free will and request.
"At that time." said Mr. Colvin, "he
reminded us that ho had reglsten-d at
so many places that it would be difficult
for him to recall but n few of them,"
After Murphy signed the aflldavit,

until late in the afternoon. In court
Murphv looked nt the Magistrate in

Mour position is n serious one," said
the court "Mr, Colvin says that you

registration early this morning. Thero
is something behind the signing of this
nflidavit. What is if"
"I'm not the right man." replied
Murphy. "Thero is u John J. Murphy
who lives in thu same house with me.
He is the man. I never signed an affi

Magistrate Herbert then asked Mr.
Colvin if it was possible that he won mis

Men's Overcoat Day at Saks'
Saks Overcoats at I ISO to 30.00
will poll a big vote today!
I Wc submit that the overcoat season has been delayed J.onsJ' enough. .
J A late dinner or a fugitive collar button is not regarded as sufficient excuse
for holding a theatre curtain beyond eight-fifteen.
I Wc therefore take it upon ourselves to declare this to be the official opening
of the overcoat season, despite the unprofessional conduct of the thermometer.
I Besides, if ever an overcoat season was deserving of recognition by meteorol
ogy, or man, basing its claims on the character of its credentials, this is that season.
J Masculine modes in overcoats are almost as numerous and diverse this Fall as
ore feminine modes habitually this is, in fact, peculiarly an overcoat year, and
Saks', as muer, is thea uthantic
'. canter for overcoat styles
C At all prices wc arc by reputation first and foremost in rcady-for-scrvicc
clothes, but it is the fact that wc sell more higher-priced garments than any other
house in America, which has elevated our popular-priced clothes so far above
the average productions at 17.50 to 30.00.
I And nowhere in this land of trumpeting, braying and Bull Moose calls can
you find that wonderful range of selection, in fabrics, colorings and models,
which awaits you at Saks' this Election morning.
5 The fabrics for the most part are those rough surface coatings, in solid .colors,
in snappy light and dark Oxfords, and in the new Cambridge colors; and the
models arc no less numerous, y
C The majority of our overcoats at 17.50 to 30.00 arc made on regulation lines,
with many variations of the belted back feature, finished with self collars, and
the split three-piece sleeves, having fancy turned cuffs. .
I Yes, Sir, you can also get a Saks greatcoat for 17.50 to 30.00. Single or double

Finally everything was ready for tho
firing und after ears had been stuffed full
of cotton to protect the ear drums. Col.
Babbitt shouted through his megruphone
to Lieut Chick F.v.ms und his picked crew
lo "let'er go " The spectators were
perched out of harm's way on a lurge
bridgelike nffuir that runs back of the
range. It wasn't particularly reassuring
to bo told by a young officer thnt "wire
guns" like Aunt Jane frequently broke
in two and killed three or four thousand
bystanders, but it wns too late to get

Suddenly there was a mighty roar that
Milled the smashing of t lie breakers, a great
cloud of yellow tmoke floated up to tho
clouds nnd. in a few seconds, far out nt
sea could lie seen a, mighty column of
water arising like a waterspout. That
was more than seven miles nway, Col.
Babbitt announced. Aunt Jane had
ri-en at tjio pressing of a button from her
iron lied like soino monster, nnd in just
forty seconds had proved herself and her
Inventors. Col. Babbitt and the rest of
tho oflloerfl who had lieen working on tho
big gun for more than a year wore broad
The second shot was fired and Aunt
Jane had settled back for the third, in
ono minute and twenty-live seconds.
Through the stnoko Lieut. Chick nnd hU
crow could bo seen hustling like beavers
ramming in projectile No, 4 and bucking
It up with the bags of powdor which looked
as harmless as sucks of Hour. Shots four
and five went off liko clockwork, but nt
No. a tho unexiectuU hitch came, After
all, the trouble hud its vuluo for it showed
that even If the electrical firing arrange

do good and fast work In reKlling In

rour, tho officers pulled tho wadding out
of their ears and began to shake hands,
Tho H-incli gun us a military weapon had

understand what the others wero Baying.
Then Oen, Crozier could lie heard con

Just lieforo the first shot was fired

had sounded the bird could no longer lie

J When you sec the word "special" coupled with a Saks garment, you may
be assured that the announcement is worthy of every voter's consideration.
All Saks garments are special, in the sense that they arc better than the av
erage. But this silk-lined overcoat at 25.00 is special in the further sense
that it is better than the Saks average.

servative lines. Finishes somewhat below the knee. Is silk-lined through-outSaks-tailorcd

women to ubo the vote, nnd then to rest
contented in tho thought that if we don't
get it, our children will.
"I wonder If Mr. Hamilton realizes that
in this country we luive walled patiently
for sixty years, while the KnglWh women
waited forty years tiefore they took up
A storm of applause from three hundred
working girls interrupted Mrs. Belmont
for a moment, but apparently did not
lessen her annoyauco nt the playwright's
point of view.
"Did you men ever wait sixty years
for anything you wanted? she demanded
bestowing a severe look upon tho only
trousered individual in the hall. ,
Apparently he interpreted the question
as a purely rhetorical one, for he mado
no attempt to reply, and Mrs. Belmont
went on talking.
"Wou Id women have any opinion of men
who waited sixty years for what they
believed to be their fight?" she inquired.
"I think not. livery one horn remem
bers how she wus taught to admire tho
men who fought the war of the ltevolu
tion. Their methodn wero surely militant
enough. Homo of them thought it would
bo a good thing to throw a cargo of tea
overbourd to show that they wouldn't
pay taxes unless they were represented in
the Hrlllnh Parliament.
"We hnvo lieen taught to admire that
act as one of great bravory," Mrs. Belmont
went on, warming to her subject' with
."Thers whi a lot .of old Udlu who
Imrl bean tv.iltini months for some tea.
Their opinion wasn't asked ubout throw
ing il, overuoarn, uuv vnvy uiuu k iimu'""
whon the man did It.
"Some rum wns brought in at the same
time, but the men didn't pitch that into
the sea. Oh. no. They nude use of the
tea for the demonstration of theh- prin
ciple 'no taxation without representation
nnd saved the rum. And history call
them brave men.
"They didn't ask our opinion about
their methods nnd we'rn not going to have
men rlictnto to us what methods we shall
use to get the vote. We shall use Ameri
can methods over here, and English
women will use the methods thnt seem
liest to them. But American and Eng
lish women are determined to get the
vote nnd to get It qui ckly."
Again the audience signified that Mrs.
Belmont had thero many hundreds of
sympathizers with her anyway, and
then Mis. Ella McKenzie, a militant suf
fragette of Wal.'s, told why it all had to
lie window smashing and hunger strik
ing and Cabinet Minister baiting, nnd the
rest of it.
Mis McKenzie is slender nnd blonde,
and soft of voice, and Mr. Hamilton
smiled nt her indulgently until sho con
fessed she was so dreadfully militant that
once she wus shut up in jail just liecause
Lloyd George haupened to come to a
town whoie she was stopping. Then he
Mr. Hamilton really believes in votes
for women, lie explained so much so, in
fact, that ho has often advocated the
cause over his own signature. But he
can't see the use of making such an awful
fuss about what's sure to come anyway,
don't you know.
It. would be shocking, iu Mr. Hamilton's
mild opinion, if New York women
smashed all tho windows on Fifth avenue,
and elbowed elderly gentlemen ut parties.
"Hut how untiring 1 l lie vision oi on
election day when women iu charming
clothes drop their ballots iu the proper
boxes, with no noise, no confusion, no
emotionalism!" he exclaimed. "When
women vote, I urn sure thero will bo none
of the organized delirium which now
prompts your men to chenr sixty-live
minutes for ft Presidential candidate,
All the barbarism which characterizes
the elections of to-day here and in Eng
land will disappear under the sane influ
ence of the sex of superior jioiBe.
"But whut will become of more meti?
Will we count at alt? Will you consider
us even marriageable?"
Ho got a polite round of applause, but
"Did he renlly mean all that, stuff,"
inquired a pctito, black haired suffragetto,
as sho flounced out of the room, "or was
he trying to sound like that horrid .Mr.
