GIVE EM A CLUB, BIJ.LY "
We surely do like the sound of that
man Billy Sulzer, governor of New
York. In his address to the people,
in behalf of the fight for state wide
direct primaries, he says:
"I know the powers that I have as
governor of New York; I know the
agencies at my disposal. All of those
powers that I can honestly use, all
of those agencies, will be used from
now henceforward to defeat and
crush the Democrats who, resisting
the sovereign will of the people, are
attempting to make the Democratic
party in New York state a political
hypocrite and place it upon a pedestal
of public scorn."
This has the noise of a threat, the
swish of a big stick, and it ought to
bring down the persimmons, for there
are thousands of New York Demo
crats who can only be moved by pros
pects of being let out when the spoils
are. being passed around.
Of course, Boss Murphy of Tam

Regular Republicans are fighting the
diregt primary reform, having ac
complished its defeat in the late
shameful session. They are literal
ly fighting for their political lives,
Murphy's bossism being especially
jeopardized since his power is being
weakened in another direction; that
is, through the exposures of the
New York police force villainies.
Tammany Hall shorn and compelled
to wear stripes, little boy Barnes may
naturally blow nis horn invain, since
he is a minority boss, anyway, and
only worth so much as any little kind
assistance is worth to the bigger.
Take the setting up of tickets and
other powers away from Tammany
Hall, and that infamous servant of
any interest that has the cash be
comes innocuous, and those of other
parties who have nursed at its fount
of power naturally starve to death.
