In New York State are looklncforward
with esRcrnecs to thr Rrrnt oonferrnc
of Notional ProKfrsMvcn which la to
be held In ChlcnRo on December 10.
The Republican leaders of tho Stat
are alive to the Importance of that

and the concern which all Republican

future of the Republican party."
"In households all over the State,

and Its effect on the future of the Re

Interest In this gigantic political prob

fact that a new party, scarcely sis
months old, could arise and practically

Many Progressives have given their
views and many Republicans have ex
pressed their opinions. In a nutshell the
Republican view of the case Is expressed
In the two following sentences:
"8o long as Roosevelt and his party
advocate the recall of Judges and tho
recall of Judicial decisions the Republi

In all other matters there Is not many

"This 'warfare will never end while
these corrupt leaders are at the helm.
It will never end until the Progressive
platforms In the State and nation are
accepted by the old lino Republicans."
The fight between the Progressives

the nation for the next sixteen years or

.Republican county leaders who In the
t few days have spoken candidly as
to the problems confronting them stated
that they would fight the Progressives
on their platform with ail their might

.any effect this fight might have on the
political control of the State.
Against the Recall.
They have declared with emphasis
that they could not accept tho doctrines
of the Progressives, especially tho one
which calls for the recall of Judges and
of Judicial decisions. They have ad
mitted at the samo time that their or
ganization In many counties has been
In the great counties of Krle, Kings,
'New York, Westchester, Richmond and
Queens the Progressives ran lirst over
the Republican candidates. In Monroe
county the battle wuh almost a tie. It
is known that many regular Republican
voters who have no sympathy with
Roosevelt or his platforms voted the
.Progressive ticket In order to humiliate
a number of the regular organization
.leaders of the State.
It Is no exaggeration to say that
thousands of Republican voters In the
Hlate demand new leaders for their
State organization. They want younger
men. They want men who have not
been subjerled to long and pronounced
criticism. They believe that this work
of upbuilding by the retirement of n
number of their leaders and the sub

places should he begun at once If tho

The Republicans In different counties
who have discussed tho proposition that

all over the country remark that the
effort tn establish these Republican
clubs Is but an admission that the State
and national organizations are weak and
Ineffective and do not enjoy the confi

word these Republican voters do not be
lieve' that the establishment of the Re
publican clubs will bring about the de
Now for the Progressives and their
side of tho argument. They tell you
that the Progressive party Is not a one
man party. They dd that Its princi
ples have permeated every voting pre
cinct In the country and that these
principles have come to stay and by
them they expect to absorb or annex
the Republican party, or what Is left of
It, four years hence In the national con
vention. Have Young Men In Line.
They Insist that they have the young
men, who are naturally Republicans,
with them. They go all over the State
and point out how In different counties
these young men worked Incessantly
for the Progressives In the recent cam
paign and that their efforts have
awakened a renewed zeal in them since
As an Interpolation the Republican
leaders admit that in the recent cam
paign they lost tho support for the
first time In many years of the young
voters. Continuing, the Progressives
assert that the New York delegation
to the national conference of Progres
sives at Chicago on December 10 will
demonstrate beyond peradvehture that
Charles J. Hamlin of Buffalo and others
throughout the State, Including thou
sands of young men, have enlisted for
a permanent war on the Republican
organization of the commonwealth.
The Progressives are In somewhat of
a quandary as to who shall succeed Will
lam II. Hotchklss as State chairman.
Mr. Hotchklss Is shortly to become pres
ident of a New York city insurance
company, but feels that he should re
tain his place as chairman. There Is
strong objection among Progressives to
Mr. Hotchklss's conclusions in this mat
ter. But It Is known that If George W.
Perkins and his friends, supported by
ex-President Roosevelt, desire the re
tention of Mr. Hotchklss as State chair
man of their party the Progressives
will accede to the decision.
The Democrats, It U learned, are
fully aware of their advantage In the
State so long as this bitter warfare
between the Republicans and the Pro
gressives continues. But It Is their In
tention this winter to pass a work
man's compensation bill. The Demo
cratic platform calls for such a meas
ure, and so do tho platforms of the
Republicans and the Progressives.
Will Take niral's Thunder.
The Democrats feel that In passing
such a law they will toko from the Re
publicans and the Progressives their
chief claim" for support and that the
Democrats will reap the advantage at
The Democrats are also to remedy de
fects In the Levy election law pointed
out by the court. It is their Intention
to have as short a session of the Legis
lature as possible, to curtail the ex
penditures of the Slate nnd to frown
ipon any effort to Introduce "ripper"
legislation. In other words the Demo
crats are to see to It that they carry
out all planks of' tho recent Syracuse
convention through legislation.
It was learned to-night that the Pro
gressive party In the State hopes to
enlist the support of Stephen A. Clark
of Otsego, formerly a Republican As
semblyman for that county nnd now
rwner of the Knickerbocker Press.
Mr. Hamlin of Buffalo nnd Mr. Clark
am bu typca of men whom tho ProgreH
slves believe by their 'aggressiveness
nnd experience will eventually lead regi

Progressive party. Many of theso mat
ters are to come up nt the meeting of

York city on Tuesday next.

Dr. Murphy spoke particularly of
anchylosis, a disease of the joints. What
ho wanted to Impress on the members of
his profession was that whllo the opera.
Hons for this disease were not dltllcult
they required exactness of detail. Ho
said that he wns shocked by the grow
neglect on the part of some of the pro
fession In not keeping limbs together
properly after on operation. More harm
came from this, ho thought, than from
bungled operations themselves.
Dr. Murphy described a good many
lione operations which ho has made
recently. The best thing known, said
Dr. Murphy, for maintaining apposition
of Iwnes was tho I .are plate, used lirst
by Dr. w. Arbuthnot Lane of London,
