Massachusetts form of ballot, a proposed
law providing for' tho nomination of
United States Senators at a direct pri

party Btate conventions and substituting a
Statewide real direct primary law.
The (Inwrnor points out that certain
election reforms demanded by the people,

"for many years," continued th Gov

In discussing the provisions of his pro

that In view- of the fact that all of those

thought It might be well In advance to

only Tammany Hall but every Democratic
element In-the State, even Including Will

provisions are agreeable to those who
have been In the forefront In advocating

J. I'. Hlrd president of tho National
Association of Manufacturers, ha re
ceived 300 replies from emplo era through
out the State to whom he sent letters
or tt-Jegrams telling what in pruvlded for
In tho woringmeu's oomiKiisHtlon bill
which will be iutioduced In the Legis
lature to-morrow or Tuernlay.
"Tho remarkable thing nbout nil these
letters," Mr. Ulrd said yesterday, "was
that they were without exception In favor
of woikmen's compensation. Hut they
want compensation, not conns-cation, as
this law provides.
"I nnd Duct thce correspondents of
iiiliui are naturally unable to reconcile
Gov. Glynn's supposed conservatism with
so radlcd .1 measure. They want a hear
ing 1m fore the Governor and the logMa
turo so that they can present their side
of this question.
"It Ik eay to see the politics In this

the last election, but comes back to force
on tliH manufacturers this bill as the
frowning piece of political Infamy."
G. II SJtllwell of the Franklin Motor
Company, Syracuse, telegraphed to New
York yesterday tho following comment:
"Thcie has been suillclent ejiin-rience
with workmen's compensation laws In the
United Statm to make It reasonably
easy to determine what would be a fall
and proper law for tho State of New
York. .Such a law should rover both
hazardous and non-hazardous trades. The
Utter as much as Uie former need re.
lief from ambulance dinning lawyers and
from the expense, delay and ill feeling
resulting from litigation. The rompen
satlon schedule should not be materially
higher than It Is in the compensation
laws nf adjacent Suites. Otherwise the
tendency of tho law will bo to drive
Industries out of th State."
Ahsemblymnn Mark Illsher, who Intro
duced Gov. Sulzer'H llri-'t primary bill,
rapped the piopmcd compensation bill on
the ground that it would still give work
to unscrupulous lawyers.

Mr. Dry an was delivering an address nt
the national 1 conference on popular gov
ernment. "It Is a fallacy," Mr. Hrynn was saying,
"to believe that you can fit a people for
self government when Ou deny them the
right to try."
Miss Helen Todd of California, who
spoke nt the iccent National Suffrage
convention here, bobbed up at this point

"How about popular government for

Secretnry Hrynn was plainly displeased
with the Interruption. Ills face became

Secretary llryan spoke on "The I'eople's
Rule. How to .Make It a Tact."
Quoting liberally from his own lecture.
"The Signs of the Times." Mr. Itiyan told
his hearers that the constitutional amend
ment for the eb'ctlon of Senators by direct
vote Is the most Important progressive
reform put Into effect In recent 'Imes.
Mr. llryan expressed the opinion that
the next Important changes to 1. brought
aliout were those forecasted In President
Wilson's address to Congress last Tuesday,
when he uiged that provision be Incor
porated In the laws of the United States
for Presidential primaries and for legis
lation which will make It easier to amend
Secretary llryan reiterated his convic
tion that the right and the capacity to
rule were repostd In the people of" the
United States, and then he asserted that
there Is n trend toward popular govern
