nevertheless, to undertone another

A atop was made Immediately outside
of Now Haven on aoeount of a signal
whloh Dougherty had found aat against

speed until It waa making better than
sixty-five miles an hour, bore down on
Bridgeport where Coroner Phelan and
a party of newspaper men boarded It.
Aboard the train then besides the Board

calibrated by Tale University profaosors
yesterday and was guaranteed to be
accurate. Tna Bret atop after Bridge

had found a signal agalnet him and
where the asms signal was thrown to
day. A service application of the
brakea waa made and the train halted

atop was achlsved In twenty-two and a
fraction seconds, the trsln running sji
feet after tha brakes had been applied.
Oeneral Supt Woodward said this was
a good atop for a MO-ton train, and one
which satisfied htm perfectly. The train
was the same as Thursday, composed
of engine and tender, the former a lto-
ton affair; a mall oar, No. 1X1; Baggage

It was nevar made clear by testimony
just how long Dougherty atuok to his
service brake before applying the emer
gency aad there was no attempt made
to-day, therefore, to duplicate his per

Coroner Phalan waa not satisfied with
this test and aakad that after the rail
road had satlsrlad the Interstate Com

twenty miles an hour for him and see
how qulohly It could be stopped. It was
at about this apeed that Dougherty aald
he waa running whan the brakea failed

make this test and any other test ths

After ths teste ft. J. Burton, tho

Will Accept Only a Pro
gressive Democrat, Says
County Chairman.
Bird Indicates Present Execu
tive Can Get Support on
Anti-Boss Platform.
Bull Moose County Chairman Francis
w mi d. In an official atntament to-day,
put that party flatly upon record, de
stroying hopes of some of tha fusion
movements recently plenned.
The party Insists on tha nomination
for ths Mayoralty of a Progressive Dem
ocrat, and will Indorse no other. The
argument la that the city vote la norm
ally Democratic and progressives of any
other complexion cannot win agalnet
mactilrie candid a tea of either aide bsoked
by financial Intereata.
The editorial utterancea of the New
Turk Progreealva newspapera Indicate
Mayor Oaynor Is the "Progressiva
Democrat" In mind, aa clearly aa
Chairman Bird's ultimatum reflects the
views of Theodore Roosevelt George W.
reruns and other prominent Progrso
slves. Aftsr Inviting a general fusion of the
progressives of all parties on antt-boea
prlnclplea, Mr. Bird makes It plain that
ths Bull Moose party will not lend Its
emblem to a fusion for Whitman, no
matter who nominates him.
Upon thla subject ths statement sig
nificantly dsclarea:
"It la not enough that a man may
hava shown Integrity and ability as s
legislator, popularity aa an after-dinner
speaker, skill aa a lawyix, or capacity
as a prosecuting officer. A city whose
annual budget approximates ISOU.OOO.ooo a
year would ba foolish not to require
that Its Mayor be a man or demon
strated ability and thorough experience
In bualnaaa-llke administration.
Mr. Bird aald:
"Tha Progresslvss are Just now more
Interested In ths pledged policies of the
neat city admtnletratlon than la lis
personnel, more Interested in the prin
ciples for whloh the campaign will ba
waged than In attempting to decide In
June who should be nominated In Aug
ust and September. The Progressives
are ready to co-operate In every way
with the Cltlsens- Municipal Committee
and every liberal civic element la ths
community. U tha Citlaena' Municipal
Committee will let ua know, definitely
and concretely, Its vlewa aa to the kind
of a campaign It aeoka to make thla
year, aad will bring It about that all
candidates for anti-Tammany nomina
tions stste clearly thalr vlewa upon the
constructive municipal reforms de
manded by the Prog re selves la all three
parties. It wiu then be time to decide
who can beat be tho candidates."
Mr. Bird then calls attention to the
strong element of liberal minded voters
In all partlsa who are opposed to boss,
rule, and adds:
"The Progressive party. I believe, It
Insistent that In this municipal campaign
there ahall ba afforded a rallying point
for those progressive voters Democratic
Progressive and Republican and a clean-
cut standard of battle raised In behalf of
thoaa principles. That rallying point
ahould ba primarily. In my opinion, ths
Citlaena' Municipal Committee, If possi
ble, but the Progressive party if need be.
"Evidences are not lacking of an
lPaM upon the part of bi-partisan fin
ancial and political Interests to dlctats
both the Tammany and anti-Tammany
nominations thla year. For that sort
of thing the Progressive party will
never stand. Reaotfbnary elements
In finance and politics may dictate ths
Tammany and ths Republican nomina
tions; they may even capture the Citl
aena' nomination, although I hope not:

for all thla yea and afterwards,

that third ticket will be

"The Progressive Party la opposed to
the rule of political machines In sny
form, or in any place. We are especi
ally at war with that bi-partisan oom

popular demand for dlrsct nominations
It la Inconceivable that the Republican
and Democratic bosses who are standing
shoulder to shoulder In Albany thla
week would conduct anything but a
sham battle In New York this fell.
Approaehlag tna section of his pro
fession of faith dlreotly dealing with
what students ef politics say la a rsf
erenco to the candidacy of Mr. Whit
man, the county Chairmen aays:
"We are not Interested In the cam

ahall not nominate a ticket which la

Three prime requisites for the Mayor
alty nomination by tha Progressives are
then outlined by Mr. Bird, aa follows:
"Plret, tha candidal for Mayor and
for the other places on the Board of
Eatlmate must be men of demonstrated
dtnees for municipal admtnletratlon.
They must have proved their ability to
cope with the difficult problems of city
management city finance and city de
velopment. No cltlten In hla private

of entrusting administrative tasks of
auch magnitude to a man without great

greealva party Is a party of conatructlve
liberalism, and iU leaders cannot do
otherwise nan inalst that Ita candidates
must be honestly and wholeheartedly In
sympathy with tha progressive spirit In
municipal affatra."
Concluding tha atatemant, Mr. Bird
states that the time has come for the
co-operation of all antl-machlne and
liberal votere of New York against
ths politicians who aeek a meaningless
campaign. Ha fires this parting aaluta
at tha big and little boeeee whom the
Chief Bull Mooee, T. R, loves to lash
so heartily:
"If ths Cltlasns Municipal Committee
makes clear that It Is ready to lead a
really worth-while campaign to admin

old-time bosses who now aland with
their backs to the wall In Albany, every
