MISS 1MI0DKS' WINS OIT
Ii'iiinpiis Was rnncco-iarv. a
More Man Docs rlci'tinir
Many a Moo-olte i born to blu-h un
seen. Not so Miss Mary Donnelly.
Our Mary, as she prefers to l called,
led the liveliest kind of a tight nt. a big
Moosetto meeting ut tho headquarters,
lfl Kast Twetity-oighth strts'l. yesterday
When the smoke of battle cleared away
Miss Donnelly and hor aiders ,uul al't
ters hail liecn driven to the wall. Hut
they were still full of fight Hoarse but
heroic they continued to shout "No! No!"
and declared that KOinobody or something
was being railroaded through the meeting
The fracas occurred over tho oloetion
of a new Stnto loatler of Moosottes to take
the place of Mls Alio Cirpentor Tho
liall was so packed with women that there
wasn't room for anything between thorn
except a difference of opinion. That had
squeered in all right, and a very iraplnra
bki specimen it was too.
Muttering? of the coming conflict were
heard when the temporray chairman.
Miss Anne Ithodes, explained that the
ladies would please nominatn n Moosetto
to be State le,ier. She suid they would
vote yn or no on the nomination
Tlie Ica'o of nominating is a consuming
one In the Moosotto liosom and in four
seoondA four immes were thrown like
hats into the ring. It was manifestly
impossible to vote yes or no on four names
arid so it as decided to ballot. First
blood for our Mary!
While several young Moosettes fever
ishly tore up imBsiS campaign literature
to make lulloU somebody else moved
that tho rennminntors get up and ( tell
why their candidates deserved tho votes
of tho meeting. Imd applnuso greeted
the suggestion. Mrs. Vunamoe of New
burgh was Ilrst into the breach with a
tribute to Miss Anne Ithodes.
"Sho knows how to handle women and
how to keep peace," declared thu lady
from Ntjwhiirgh.trather premuturely as it
turned out. "Her experience," con
tinued the t-ieaker. but was interrupted
by a murmur of isrotust.
Experience nothing!" said a voice
which bad a suspiciously Donellian
accent. "What has she ever done?"
In the uproar which followed u crack
in the folding doors behind the chairman
disclosed on anxious masculine visago,
But it faded away to the accompaniment
of a flurried;
"This is no .place for a frail man!"
Mrs. William (Irant Krown was tho
second candidate. Hut in some mys
terious way an embargo had Uen placed
on nominees who were not present at tho
meeting. Mrs. Ilrown lieing absent her
name therefore disappeared in tho diiht.
Tho same fate overtook the third candi
date, Mrs. Itobert Elder.
The fourth, Mrs, Tongee, recognizing
that discretion is tlie better part of valor,
llrraly withdrew her uame. At that
there was another shower of hats into
the ring, but it availed nothing owing
to the presence of mind of a woman wtio
"moved that nominations Imj declared
The door to offloe thus lieing summarily
shut there remained only one candidate
to be voted upon. Campaign literature
had been shredded in vain, for it now
bnoe more liecamo possible lo vole ac
cording to tho original yes and no plan,
Miss Rhodes' therefore asked all tho
MooKottes who favored her for State
leader to say aye. There was a gratifying
volume of sound,
Thon sho politely requested tho oon
trary minded to say no. A twl. volume
of sound rent the air. Kr ah as it
seemed impossible to decide she would
ask thoso in favor to rise and bo counted,
Seventy assorted hats were sKttcd.
Thcao opposed? Only soven millinery
confections were elevated, hut they
quivered defianoe in every feather.
In a misguided moment a woman rose
and moved that tho nomination bo mndo
unanimous. Sho did not know tho teiriiHir
of that little bond. When thu ayes had
been' spoken Miss Ithodes, who is grand
past parliamentarian of women's clubs
forgot that there was anything doing on
the othpr side of tho question.
It is carried,' said Aliss Rhodes.
"No! no!" cams In stptitorlan, also
Donollian tones. "You haven't asked for
those opposed." ,
"Oh!' said the chairman, "Those
opposed soy 'No,'"
There was a confused response,
a. ?0n oppoawd," the chairman.
with a slight edge on her calm voice
"Only oim person in all this assembly
votes against. "
Wow! Up rose n Moosetto of milium!
mien to declare that sho knew th"n was
more than ono vote in the negative.
"Very well! Will those opioed please
Suro they would l'p stood the original
seven. Not a feather was missing. The
wearer of one of them took ,'idvantago of
being on her feet to get in a little sihs-cIi.
"I want to explain, she said, "why
I oto no It is because I think this
whole proceeding is contrary to our
iirinciplos as Progressives. Wo have
had no tiotico of this election We have
had no time to think ovir possible candi

who were presented three of whom dis
appeared anyway as candidates before
we had nn opportunit y of voting on them.

of "Hear! Hear'") Wo are Progressive
women. lud uppl,-ue And we think
this has been a most iinproaxes-iye pro

Out of th" tumult came the voice of
Miss Alice Carpenter bogging to have all
the blame put on her shoulders if it was
to Ih; put uiiywhere She explained
that owing to so and so and hi-oaiM- of
such and such and dun in this, that and
the other the election had Urn unheralded.

Hut the rest was lost in thunders of
applause l-.von the get together force

"I'm sure you all know Miss Khodos
and whit she has done," was the way Miss
Carpenter tempted fate next And fate
in the person of Miss Donnelly demanded
"What lias she done? ,
lly this time tho confusion was so great 1
thut not even the call of the Hull Moose
himself would have had any more effect
than the piping of a penny whistle. Out
of tho tumult one picVed disjointed frag
ments such as this from a woman who
had asked the chair for information and
had received a generous supply from
persons near her
"1 in not abking tho audience" sho
snapped "I'm nsklmj the chair "
Finally the liev Mis Allelwich (thus
was slie nddrossid) rose to plead again
thut tiie nomination be made unanimous
"No' no'" shouted tho seven sonorous
tit-tors "We know our own minds."
Another would -bo peacemaker suggested
that the rebellious minority be permitted
to send in their own choicrfbf leader along
with tho name of Miss Ithodes to Chair
man Hotchkiss of the State committee.
Hut everybody, oveili the seven simooms,
was finally quieted when Miss Ithodes
explained that they Muln't any real right

With the issuing of an order by Pres
ident Italph Peters of the Iuig Island
Hnilroad last night directing K. M,
Weaver, the railroad's engineer of main
tenance of way, to rip up the sixteen
tracks which connect the main line of the
railroad with their new 730.noo freight
yard at Hollis, the Hollis Improvement
Association w-on a fight of moro than
five years, while the railroad finds itself
cut off from tho use of its main distrib
uting yard. One of tlie officials of th)
rood declared last night tho result would
work hardship to the whole of Long Island,
for it is to this Hnlhari yard. a it is called,
that, freight intended for different ortR
of Long Island ns well ns outgoing freight
is brought for the making up of trains.
Hnilroad men predict disorganization
of freight tVafllo ns a result or tho removal
of the tracks and it will continue, it is
said, until some other distribution yard
can be built.
The Holbkn freight yard Is said to be
one of the largest and most modern of
its kind in tho country The tracks along
Hamilton nvenuo gradually increased in
number till there were sixteen of them.
Then thu Hollis Improvement Association
contended thar they Interfered with the
development of Hollis and that the rail
road never acquired a right to lay them,
but was allowed to do it through tho lax
ity of certain borough officials.
The association securiHl the indictment
and conviction of theraliroad company
on tlie chnrgn of maintaining a nuisance
and a line of $Vo was imKsed. A demand
was made that the comiiuuv take up iw
tracks, and when it didn t,' an order
waa obtained directing I'reKident Connolly
of Queens to remove the nuisance.
The railroad offered to build a concrete
viaduct at a cost of $3m,ono to curry its
lines over the u venue. 'I his projiosition
was turned down. Next it offered to
depress tlm tracks, nnd carry them under
tho iivouuo, but the Improvement asso
ciation would not consent to this cither,
unless the depression was carried on to the
maiq tracks nnd through thu village of
iioui". to give uniformity to tne work.
Meantime, they upplied for nn order to
declare President t onuolly in contempt
of court for failing to rip up tho tracks
and were pushing the suit in the Brookly
Various compromises were offered,
but tho Board or Intimate was unuble
to settle tho controversy and President
Connolly, who had no funds to carry out
tho order for ripping up the tracks, was in
danger of having a judgment of con
tempt entered against him. It was to
end this situation that President Peters
ordered tliat the tracks should bo wholly
removed by Id o'clock this morning.
