NEW YORK MINISTERS DEGRADE
PULPIT WITH POLITICS.
One Parker Scores Hearst in Strong
est Terms and Passionately Ob
jects to Democratic Votes Going
ing to Sued a Man.
Now York, Nov. 1. All ihe forces
amiyi'd behind Charles E. Hugncs
and .opposed to W. R. Hearst yester
day Rliowril supromo confidence In tlio
result of Tuesday's election. They ex
pect that 1 1 ii gli os will lie elected l
an overwhelming plurality and are
much Impressed by the reports that
nro constantly coming in that tin- tide
has sot strongly and unmistakably tor
HughuH among hitherto strong sup
porters of Hearst. So largo arc trie
county pluralities Indicated by the
loports of the slate canvass received
at the headquarters of tho Republican
state committee that Chairman Wood
niff rofusos to give them to tho pub
lic. Ho does not want the Idea to get
abroad that Hearst Is beaten before
the polls open.
On the other hand, the life has com
pletely none out of the Hearst mana
gers. They show their dejection In
their manner of tnlklng and prlately
Intimate tnat they have no expectation
of the election of their nominee since
the dellvercy of Mr. Root's speech,
further than this, the best Informed
Tammany managers expect tho elec
tion or .Hughes nml will he satisfied
If the' succeed In savins, their Judi
tint for the tactics of the dlsor-
j derly element of the Independence
League, tlmt is acting under orders
and Intorl'oiing with Republican moot'
Ings, the canvass is closing quietly
Thb anil-Hearst femes -will not relax
vigilance so that they will be In dan
ger of losing a single vole thoy now
hold, and Hughes will continue to
speak until late tomorrow- night. He
will close his work with a speech at
Durland's Hiding Academy, which will
bo one of tho greatest meeting of
' the campaign.
There were many sermons against
Hearst today. One of the most nota
ble was dellvored by the Rev. Dr.
Lindsay Parker of the Protestant
church In-Brooklyn, himself a Demo
crat. Ho scored Hearst in tho strong
est tonus and passionately objected to
tho nttempt made to deliver votes of
Domocrats to such a man. Other ser
mons woro dellvored for Hitghos by
' tho Row Dr. John V. Peters and Or.
Tammany Hall held an afternoon
rally in tho Star Theater and even
ing meetings In thenlers In the Bow-
ory. Tho principal speakers at those
r meotlngs were Representatives Cock
1 ran and Senator Grady. Both of theso
men huvo been maligned by Hearst
as dishonest and both a year ago wit
opposing his election as mayor on the
ground that he was the embodiment
' of the spirit of ilot and anarchy-
Extraordinary efforts aro holng ta
ken to obtain au absolutely fair elec
tion. New methods will be employed
by the state superintendent of elec
tions and by Police Commissioner
BInghani.Not only havo Uie police
lioen hold responsible for tho detec
tion' of false registration, but each
man on duty at' the polls will be made
responsible) for false voting nnd If It
occurs ho will havo to answer per
sonally. In addition to this a system
of mounted patrols will bo bold In
reserve to hasten to nny polling place
whero thoro Is disorder.
Roports from Now York cities show
that thoro is a strong drift toward
Hughes since tho wide distribution ot
tho Root speech.

SCHEME CONTEMPLATED TO EN
LIST CARNEGIE ON ROADS.
Believed That From a Humanitarian
Standpoint the Benefit to the Gen
cral Public Would Be Greater
on the Roads.
.Muskogee, I. T., Nov. I. A move
incut has been started here to Interest
Andrew Carneglo in tho proposition
of donating funds for tho construction
of Carnegie public roads in tho now
state instead of public libraries. A
local newspaper has published tills
proposition, together with a map
showing a road ten miles In length
leading from Muskogee to Indian mil
wrslty. Hyde Park, Fort Gibson ami
tho national cemetery biyoud that
It Is shown that this road could be
built for $100,000. including a wagon
bridge aerosH the Arkansas river. It
would be graded, drained and macad
amized and set Its entire length with
maple or elm trees nt that price.
It is shown that tho amount of
money that Is now being given away
by Carnegie would build !!,U00 miles
of such road each yenr, and that the
benefit to the public would bo much
greater than in cases where the money
goes to public libraries. This Is es
pecially truo In the new state, where
It will bo Impossible to construct roads
of any consequence for several years.
Maps showing this load will bo for
warded to Mr. Carnegie at onco. and
the matter wlll.be laid before him for
his consideration. This scheme is an
entirely original one, and Its recep
tion by tho great benefactor Is prob
lematical. KILLING NEAR HUGO.
