Conservatives Think They Will Con
trol State Committee To-day.
Whatever attempts may be made by the Hearst
members of the Democratic State Committee to
control that body when It meets at the Hoffman
House to-day will be defeated, according to the
best information last night. The conservatives said
they had the situation so well in hand that It was
possible the radicals would not care to force a
•bow of strength. It was thought that perhaps the
Hearst men would try to get a line on what they
could do by fighting for Buffalo as the place for
the convention and for a date earlier than Sep
tember 25. which is the earliest that has been sug
gested by the conservatives. Saratoga- will proba
bly be named.
Unless there is a change in the programme. Cord
Heyer will remain chairman of the committee. He
had intended to resign, knowing that there Is op
position to him in the committee. His resignation
ttt this time, however, would furnish an oppor
tunity for a contest that might split the committee,
a situation In which the Hearst men would have
been in a position to press some of their demands.
Mr. Meyer has, therefore, yielded to the desire of
the conservatives, and will remain as chairman, but
with the understanding that he shall not be a can
didate for re-election after the convention.
Following the recent hobnobbing of William P.
Dbnners. of Buffalo, with Charles F. Murphy at the
tatter's country estate on Long Island, it was re
ported last night that Murphy had gone to the
front and asked that Meyer retire to-day in favor
of Conners. It was said that this was not at all
tin Indication that Murphy had gone over to
Hearst, but simply that he had promised to do
•rhat he could for Conners as a personal matter.
Ifarphy was told, according- to the report, that
there was no ofaance for hi* friend, as Mr. Meyer
■N»I4 not retire at this time.
There Is an impression that Murphy is not at all
•wsrse to getting into friendly relation* with the
Hearst men, as he thinks he may need them In
Bghtlag the MoClellan influence at the primaries.
At the same time be thinks. it Is said, that it
Would never do for him to come out openly now for
Hearst's nomination, as it would be used against
him by the conservative element and might be the
tpunedlat* cause of his losing several districts.

Norman E. Mack, of Buffalo, who represents the
State In the Democratic National Committee reached
the Hoffman House last night. He had stopped off
|h Albany to see ex-Governor David B. Hill, as told
in another column.
As for himself, Mr. Mack reiterated what he has

most available candidate for the Governorship
nomination, but he will not support him unless he

One of the suggestions made last night wm» that
the Hearst members of the committee might try
to force the committee to fill these vacancies.

Congressional Campaign Committee
Chairman Opens Headquarters.
Congressman Sherman, chairman of the Repub
lican Congressional Campaign Committee, formally
opened the headquarters of the "committee on the
thirteenth floor of the St. James Building, la
Broadway, yesterday. From now on the work of
preparing for the campaign will be actively pushed.
The campaign textbook, which was the subject
of a conference with the President and Speaker a
week ago. will be ready for publication in about
two weeks. It is said that the announcement that
copies of the book would be sent to all who for
warded a dollar to the committee had mat with a
gratifying response and that the number of re
plies runs into four figures. This plan has been
adopted for the raising of funds for the campaign.
It fa estimated that If one out of every hundred
who voted for President Roosevelt contributes a
collar it will rr.akß an ample fund.
Congressman Sherman said yesterday that the
keynote of the campaign would be "Roosevelt and
Republicans Indorse President and
Urge Direct Vote for Senators.
Detroit July 31.— Excepting a slight brush in the
resolutions committee ower Congressman William
Alden Smith's resolution pledging the party to the
direct nomination of United States Senators, to
day's Republican State Convention was featureless,
and partook more of the nature of a ratification
meeting than a convention.
The brief contest in the resolutions committee re
sulted in the adoption of a compromise resolution,
which recommends to the Michigan delegates to the
lowa convention in September that "they direct
their effort* to the end that the people of the
United States so amend the Constitution of the
United States as to permit the election of United
States Senators by direct vote of the people."
The platform which was adopted thoroughly in
dorses President Roosevelt's administration, ex
presses appreciation of the work of the Michigan
Congress delegation, affirms continued belief in the
Republican tariff policy, congratulates the state
upon its prosperity and indorses Governor Fred
erick Warner, the other state officers and the last

The platform in indorsing President Roosevelt
says: ''We unreservedly and cordially indorse the

Roosevelt. We admire him as the embodiment of

Insistence upon adequate and efficient railroni

protests of greed and power."
Latter Said To Be Inspiring Oppo
sition to Hearst.
[By Telegraph to Tho Tribune.]
Albany. July 31.— Ex-Senator David' B. Hill
had a prolonged conference to-day at Wolfert's
Roost, his home in the North Albany pike, with
Norman E. Mack concerning the meeting of the
Democratic State Committee to-morrow in New
The Democratic politicians here credit ex-
Senator Hill with inspiring the interview given
out by ex-Judge Parker at Utica, While Mr.
Hill to not In politics any longer as he used to
be, it is a noteworthy fact that nearly all the
members of the Democratic State Committee
have been here within the last month to see him.
It Is understood here thmt at the meeting of
the state committee to-morrow the four vacan
cies caused by deaths and resignations will be
filled by the appointment of conservative, anti-
Hearst men. Following that, it is understood
that the Hill men will plan to organize the state
convention, which is to be held late in Septem
ber, so that the Democrats who have declared
for Hearst can, if necessary, be declared ineli
gible as members of the regular Democratic State
Convention. This certainly will provoke a battle
In the state convention, but the conservatives
believe that the Hearst men are going to cut
loose from the old party, anyway, and they will
try to save what they can out of the wreck.
They do not belie%-e that Hearst will be much
of a factor in state politics after this fall, as
the understanding here is that the conservatives
■will swing to Bryan and thus crowd Hearst Into
the background.
Norman E. Mack is an enthusiastic supporter
of Hearst in Buffalo, but he does not intend to
support Hearst if Hearst accepts the nomina
tion from the Independence League. He wants
Hearst as a regular Democratic candidate or
not at all. The Tribune correspondent happened
to call at Wolfert's Roost to-day while Mr. Mack
was in conference with Mr. Hill.
"There is nothing secret about Mr. Mack's
call." said Mr. Hill, as he asked the Tribune man
in. Continuing, he said: "I do not wish to reit
erate that I am out of politics. becau6e it will
sound suspicious after awhile. I am glad to see
any of my Democratic friends whenever they
call. I must refuse to give them any advice on
political matters, but will cheerfully talk cops
with them."
Efforts to get Mr Hifl to discuss the meeting
of the state committee and the probable action
of the state convention were entirely unavail
ing. Mr. Hill eaid that he had regained his
wonted health, and that he is feeling first rate
He attributed his temporary breakdown last

Action of His Men in Cortland
Turns Them to Republican Party.
[From a Special Correspondent of The Tribune.)
Cortland, X. V., July 28. — The Hearst men to
day captured the regular county convention
without a fight, and instructed Portland's three
delegates to the convention to support Hearst
for Governor. The old line Democrats are
thoroughly disgusted with the Democratic situa
tion, and look upon the campaign of the Hearst
shouters with disdain. James A. Jane, of Cort
land, who used to conduct a shoe business here,
but who found It unprofitable and closed it out,
since which he has not been active in business
pursuits, is the Hearst leader In Cortland ani
chairman of the Democratic County Committee.
Jane has been playing in hard luck for a long
time, and feels that he is one of the millions re
ferred to in the Brisbane editorials as being In
the grip of plutocracy.
"I may make mistakes," said Mr. Jane in his
speech to-day to the county committee, "but I
do not make as many mistakes as the poor, de
luded fools who vote for plutocracy. I feel that
we have got to the point where somebody has
got to do something. The people cannot stand
this thing any longer. The people are going to
revolt against the rule of the plutocrat. I be
lieve that this election will mark the overthrow
of all tho trusts and all the plutocrats."
Meanwhile Mr. Jane Is anxiously awaiting the
arrival of a check from W. R. Hearst. He wants
to open a headquarters and engage a band.
Not a single prominent Democratic business
man was present at th« county convention to
day. The old line Democrats, the men who have
contributed to Democratic victories in days gone
by, seem to have made up their minds that it is
not worth while to oppose Hearst. In conversa
tion with their Republican friends they make no
concealment of their intention to vote the Re
publican ticket this fall in case Hearst is nomi
nated by the Democrats. In normal times Dem
ocratic county conventions have been attended
by Hugh Duffey. former State Treasurer: Edwin
Duffey, of the Cortland Wagon Company, which
employs a large number of hands; ex-State
Treasurer Fitzgerald, ex-Assemblyman O. U.
Kellog. ex-Assemblyman O. D. Van Hoesen, ex-
County Surrogate S. S. Knox and Benjamin
Taylor. Not one of these men was present at
the slimly attended gathering which instructed
for Hearst to-day.
Jane has associated with him ex-Assembly
man F. B. Saunders. a Republican. Mr. Saun
ders served two terms in the Assembly and
demanded a third term. This is exceedingly
difficult to obtain in Cortland County, where a
nomination is equivalent to an election. Mr.
Saunders was not considered by the Republican
leaders to be indispensable, and he was told
politely but firmly that he could not go back.
After trying in vain to get the Republicans to
send him back for the third time, he lost his
temper and Joined the Independence League.
Cortland people generally feel that the Hearst
men tried to work tho confidence game on them.
At the organisation meeting it was announced
by ex-Senator Mackey and others that the move
ment was purely for municipal ownership, which
has many advocates in Cortland. About forty
people turned out at the first meeting. At the
close of the meeting th^re was a good deal of
surprise when Mackey said that he wanted all
those present to join the Independence I^eague.
About half of tho audience promptly left the
hnll. At the second meeting, held a few days
ago. only twenty persons were present, and there
was an entire absence of enthusiasm.
C. W. Collins, a leading Prohibitionist of Cort
land County, was induced to go Into the muni
cipal ownership movement. Mr. Collins is a
member of the Board of PunHr Works of Port
land, and has the respect of his neighbors.
When it developed that the municipal ownership
supporters were expected to join the Independ
ence League nnd work for the election of Will
lam R. Hearst. Mr. Collins was much disgusted.
'•The Hearst movement in Cortland County,"
said Wesley Hooker, ex-presidtnt of the Na
tional Bank of Cortland. "is exciting the .Ip
rlsion of thoughtful voters in the Republican
and Democratic organizations. So far as I have
been able to discover, the Republicans of this
city and county are not paying any attention
to it. If Hearst should be nominated by the
Democrats there is presumptive j>roof of a deal
between him and the machine loaders in New
York and Erie counties. Just as soon ; .s that
deal becomes apparent the Republicans who
perhaps, haves been tempted to go into a third
party movement will recognize the utter ab-
Burdtty of expecting p.iorl government from such
•a combination, and thoy will swin,? back into
Republican ranks.
"To me th« most serious thing about this
Hearst movement is the fact that back of it all
there is unchristian socialism and anarchism.
No intelligent man believes that Hearpc will he
able to fulfil the ridiculous promises he Is di
rectly nnd indirectly making. There !s no tell
ing what he will do. The strong probability is
that, owing to the pressure that would he
brought to bear upon him, he would try to do
come of the things which ho has been advocat
ing. I was very much Impressed a day or two
apo while reading the Tribune correspondent*
interview with that Buffalo man who said that
the Intelligent, well-to-do people on the Wes;
Side of Buffalo h;ul no conception of the crazy
things that were being advocated by the Hearst
men and the socialists on the East Side of the
city. In a government by the people I regard it
as a matter of very grave importance that men
should go about toiling the laboring masses that
the fortunes which had been amassed In the
t'nlted States hud been dishonestly acquired, in
tact, stolen from the masses, and that it Is th •
business of the massi s to take those fortune und
distribute them. To me a thing like that is ab
horrent. It is utterly destructive of individuality
In man. Carried .>ut to its logical conclusion, it
nierins a reconstruction of society, with every
man on a dead, fiat level with a check <>n in
ventiveness and a handicap <»n the mechanical
Keniuß of American working men. Ido not sup
pose that very many of Mr. Hearst's advocates
follow his teachings to a logical conclusion.
They approve of those principles the working
out of which means personal gain to themselves,
without tho slißhtest regard to law and order
or right and justice.
"Hearst holds the Republicans of New York
State too cheaply If he thinta he can win them
over by the advocacy of cheap socialism. When
intelligent men think the thing out for them
selves they detect the demagogue nnd the coun
terfeit. I think that the net results of Hearst's
candidacy for Governor on the Democratic ticket
will be to drive all the conservative and well-to
do Democrats into the Republican party. I look
for an old fashioned Republican victory in this
state and the United States thta fall. The record
of the Roosevelt and Higgins administration* Is
eminently satisfactory. When the issues are
fairly presented to the voter* the result will h«

Says He Wants to Drive Politics
Into Open.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Bordentown. July 31.-A reform mass meeting was
held here to-night under the auspices of the Lin
coln Republican league, of Burlington County.
The attendance was fair for the hot night, but the
heat was hard on both the audience and the speak
General E. Burd Grubb. leader of the reformers
in the county, presided at the meeting, and the
speakers were Senator Everett Colby. George L.
Record and Mayor Mark Fagan of Jersey City.
Senator Colby opened the meeting with a stirring
address. He said in part:
We don't go over the state saying that these men
up at Trenton are there to make money for wnat
they do. We hope that they are not. but^we do
say from experience that it is the vast influence
of the corporations that controls our legislation in
this state. It is at these little dinner parties given
by the Public Service Corporation and by the rail
roads that much of New Jersey's legislation that
becomes law is planned. It's at a dinner party, too.
in Xew York, or possibly in some part of Jersey,
that the big men on the Republican state ticket
are nominated each year.
What we want to do is to drive politics from be
hind closed doors into the streets, into the trolley
cars, the factories, the homes, the places of busi
ness. Once we pet the machine Into the light and
show up ItR corruption we can beat it.
Some Colby Leaders in Essex
Alarmed Over Popular Attitude.
It was learned yesterday in Newark that some
of the Colby leaders have become alarmed over
the popular lukewarmness or hostility toward
Georpre L. Record's candidacy for the United
States Senate,, and that plans are n*">w afoot to
persuade him to withdraw.
The Kss.=>x Assemblymen were never enthusias
tic about Mr. Record, and they say that their
indorsement of him was given as a personal
favor to Senator >lby. Now that they realize
the mistake made in selecting Mr. Record as
their candidate there is some anxiety as to the
best means of retrieving the error committed.
Mr. Colby is believed to be still strongly In favor
of Mr. Record, and it is possible that he may
strenuously oppose any move made to retire his
In case Mr. Record should be persuaded to
get out it is not certain who will be taken up
by the Colby men as a Senatorial candidate.

A great sensation has recently been crest m
Santo Domingo by the circulation of a rumor that
ex-Presidents Jimenez and Morales are m con

bringing about the annexation of Santo Domimro
to that country. This rumor not only injures Jims*

citizens and their property. There Is already a tit-.

the Dominicans that when they visit Germany they

The Frenchman makes a similar comparison .Be

man is not backward in calling attention to tho
excellency of Great Britain as compared to Amgr*

two most formidable are the Germans and Ital*

Domingo and Hayti and both have aspirations With
respect to the republic which they hope to see
realized at some future date. Be this as It may,
the fact remains that the hatred for Americans
daily increases, while the friendship for Germane
and* Italians also proportionately Increases.
Father McMahon Resents Red Tape
of Police Department.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I was very much amused while reading this
afternoon of Deputy Commissioner Waldo's Illumi
nating experiences in police matters abroad and tha
difference in my own experience In this quiet ham
let of New York. I was aroused out of a reverie
by a violent inquiry on my telephone as twwhsthsr
I had given permission to have a number of Iron
girders removed from our property, where they
had been stored In view of future building opera
tions. I emphatically negatived the Inquiry, and
then went over to our lots to find out the exact,
condition of affairs. It was 5 o'clock In tho after*
noon, bright and sunshiny, with plenty of people
in movement in all directions, and there I learned 1
that a truck had driven up upon the vacant lets.
had loaded my iron girders, and had driven off.
pursued by my witohmnn and a policeman that he
had <-;\uglit on the avenue, after he had learned
that 1 had not Riven permission for the aforesaid
girders' removal. They chased the truck down
Amsterdam avenue for some distance, but evidently
were iv t sprinters enough to overtake it. as the
driver whipped up his horses and galloped down
the hill.
Naturally, outraged at this violent removal of
my property, and fearing thai perhaps they would
come and take up th.^ building next. I called up
Police Headquarters, and requested to be put into
communication with the captain of the precinct,
whose number I forgot, but whose situs is in West
125 th street. Police Headquarters Inquired what I
wanted. I told the intelligent operator what was
required, and he proceeded to instruct me: That
I should first find out whether anybody was with
me. and while I was arguing that point with him,
not being able exactly to see the appropriateness
of my single or multiple condition, while my girders
were flying down the avenue, he told me that he
could not, or would not. connect me with the 125 th
street precinct, but that I should send a man down
there and tell them all about it. When I told him
thai I would prefer to be connected with the po
lice station, ho Informed me that. It was against
the rules, and when 1 again told him that I had
often I- en connected under similar circumstances
with ihi" station, he politely inquired whether I
wanted to tell him that he was a liar. A* the fact
was as I bad stated. I had only one option In the
matter, namely, to Inform him that he was a liar
under these circumstance*, whereupon he promptly
ran;; me off and closed the Interesting conversation.
la it not the height of absurdity for this Deputy
Commissioner to he prating about linger marks,
when the Police Department of New York Is not
able to prevent trucks driving upon a man's prop
erty, loading up with building material that must
have weighed at least a ton, and driving down one
of the prominent avenues of the borough without
interruption or detection? Could you not ask the
esteemed Deputy Commissioner to give a little more.
attention in burglary or highway robbery, or what
ever you want to call It. of this kind and never
mind about the finger prints when the wheel tracks
of burglarious trucks can be traced In the dirt of
our vacant lots? I presume that since the burglars
find the matter was easy, they will come and re
move our church next, and I should like to ask the
Deputy Police Commissioner to come up and look at
those track*. »•• that he might be able to Invent a
system by which in the event of the removal of
our property by main strength, he might bo able
to detect them after they have done It.
I should also like to commend to the Police Com
mirisloner the intelligence of his telephone operator,
which certainly was marvellous. Had he connect
ed me with the precinct, tin I requested, the truck
could have been stopped before it got down the hill,
hut rules must be obeyed, even though iron girders
be stolen. Yours sincerely.
