Moreover, it is palling: to McCabe to see the

So he told them in the papers to avoid the famous pre-digested food, for
it didn't give the stomach exercise, and from the lack of hard work it
would gradually get weaker.
Surely this is a "husky" one, this oats man. "Make the stomach
work," he* says. By the same token why not drop in a few beans or
black walnuts with hulls on?
The trouble is that people eat too much, and of -indigestible food.
So the poor old stomach works as hard as it can and considerable over
time until it lies down like a tired horse.
Then it needs food easy to digest; give it a chance to recover. It is
good hard sense to go a bit easy with the stomach and, even in health,
before it gives out, use wisely selected food easy to digest. That's
"There's a Reason."

But Dugan and the good doctor are not all.
There Is a formidable list of "antls"— men who

leading undertaker; Patrick J. Downey, national

me new headquarters of the league are next
door to the headquarters of the Albany County
No startling development in the local Demo
cratic situation Is looked for until after the
Hearst state convention. While the enrolment
°l tn ® Independence League Is inconsiderable,
there Is a strong sentiment among the organized
labor men in favor of Hearst. This Is what
McCabe. the Democratic county leader, must
encounter. If he is to continue at the head of
the machine he has got to look sharp, because
the Herrirk men are ready to take advantage of
any mistake. The Herrick machine is nearly
out of commission, but it could be repaired.
McCabe is regarded by his Albany friends as a
coming man in state politics. He wants to be
state chairman, and he is working without the
assistance of Anthony N. Brady and ""Gene"
Wood, the men who helped him to break the
Herrick machine. McCabe's friends say that he
Is on good terms with Mr. Brady and Mr. Wood,
but that he does not like to be too friendly at
this time, as it may hurt him.
McCabe has been making a study of state
conditions for years, and knows every prominent
Democrat in the state. He was elected County
Clerk of Albany County in 189 S. and served
three years. He has been schooled In Hill pol
itics. His friends in Albany say that if he is
elected state chairman he will raise the money
to run the campaign. Murphy and McCarren
are his friends. Hearst has sent his confidential
men to see him two or three times. So far as
known he has not made any pledges. He is in
position to Jump either way.
Chairman of Congressional Campaign Com
mittee Pleased with Political Outlook.
Congressman Sherman, chairman of the Con
gressional Campaign Committee, which opened
headquarters in the St. James Building on Tues
day, was busy at his desk yesterday, but he said
that he was doing merely routine work, catching
up with the correspondence before branching out
on the aggressive programme that has been
mapped out. The dollar subscriptions continue to
come in with every mail and the idea bids fair to
be a great success.
Congressman Sherman began the campaign in
an extremely hopeful frame of mind. He said:
The situation is most satisfactory. The country
is prosperous, crops are good, men are making
money in their business and wages are almost
universally eatlsfactory. Moreover, I don t think
the people of this country are in the temper to
overthrow the present conditions. They do not
care to take any chances and fly in the face or
prosperity the way they did a dozen years ago.
Judiciary Nominators Will Circulate New
Petition for Entire Ticket.
Lawrence B. Sexton, of the law firm of Wetmore
& Jenner, has been named by the committee on
vacancies to fill the place on the ticket of the
Judiciary nominators left vacant by the death of
Michael H. Cardozo. As the latter's name was on
the same petition with the others .new nominating
petitions will have to be circulated for the entire
ticket of Independent nominations for the Supreme
Mr Sexton was born in Cleveland on July 26. 1859.
He was graduated from Harvard in 1881 and from
Columbia I-aw School in 1887. In ISBS he berame a
member of the firm of Wetmore & Jenner. The
firm is well known, not only in patent and trade
mark law. but in general practice. Mr. Sexton is
an independent Democrat. He is an active mem
ber and trustee of the Reform Club.
The Committee of Fifteen appointed by Dick S.
Ramsay, in Brooklyn, to select candidates for the
Supreme Court bench, will try to have an equal
re-preppiitation of both Republican and Democratic
parties on the bench In this district, and It Is
rumored that to this end they will nominate six
Democrat? and only two Republicans.
The committee thinks that the Republican party
is over represented !n the Judicial District of Long
Island. Justice Jayc-ox is likely to be re-elected,
and another Republican, who has not yet been de
cided upon, will be nominated.

Southron to Lead to Victor//, Says
Virginia's Lieutenant Governor.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
Norfolk. Va.. Aug. I.— "A Southern man for the
Democratic Presidential nomination in 19M" was
the slogan sounded to-day by P. Taylor Ellyson,
Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, who is the chair
man cf the State Democratic Committee and a
member of the National Democratic Committee.
Mr. Ellyson calls' on the Southern press to work
up a sentiment In favor of a Southern man for the
nomination. Speaking of William R. Hearst, Mr.
Ellyson said:
Even though he were elected Governor of New
Tork. I predict that he will never land the Demo
cratic nomination for President. I do not believe
that the people of this country want a man of Mr.
Hearst's type. Mr. Hearst, of course. Is a man of
great executive ability, but by hiring- food writers
he has managed to keep before the public through
his newspapers. The South should name a man tor
the Presidency. It has been forty-three years since
the Civil War and I believe to-day that the feel
ing against a Southern candidate will be no greater
in other sections of the country than the feeling the
West would have for a Northern man ort he North
for a Western man. The South has Presidential
timber and a Southern man can make as strong a
running as any man did in 19M.
Says If Democrats Have Sense They Will
Nominate Justice Gaynor.
That Borough President Coler is against William
R. Hearst, with whom he ran last fall, is indicated
by the fact that he came out for the nomination
of Justice Gaynor for Governor yesterday. It was
significant as coming the day after it had been,
decided that Hearst would be nominated on an in
dependent ticket by the Independence League, and
particularly so in view of the fact that Borough
President Coler sent a telegram from his summer
home asking a friend to make his views public
The telegram was as follows:
Kindly quote me as saying that if the Demo
cratic party has sense it will nominate Justice Gay
nor upon a platform based upon this morning's
interview. It will unite the party, hold the radicals
in line and give such men as myself an opportunity
to support the ticket enthusiastically.
Hitherto Borough President Coler has been saying
that Hearst would be elected Governor, and has
gone bo far as to predict a large plurality for him.
Justice Gaynor Talks of "Overgrown
Wealth, Got Withe ■.: '£ :nng."
In an interview printed in "The World" yester
day. Justice William J. Gaynor gave his opinion on
some of the questions of the day. He avoided a
direct reply when asked if he would accept the
nomination for Governor of New York on the
Democratic ticket. He said that it was wealth,
"overgrown wealth, got without earning it, by this
means and that, by trick and device, even though
all the while according to law, or enough so as to
keep from being indicted, or by the favor of govern
ment, which has now come to be under the ban of
the splendid intelligence and moral sense of the
people of this country. That a thing is done ac
cording to law. or that there i# no practice law for
bidding it, does not always relieve it from moral
He said the railways were just as much puhllo
highways for the use of all on equal terms as "our
dirt roads." The Standard Oil Company he de
clared to be the greatest monopoly in America,
saying that its history was accursed. He said the
street railways and the oil companies owned the
city, and that the street railways Instead of re
ducing fares for short distance riders as the
dividends grew too large to be permissible, "these
companies have kept on Increasing their paper
capital so that the dividend rate would be kept
"And the most incredible thing in all this busi
ness," he continued, "is that the subway road,
wholly built with the clty f s money, is In this com
bination, and Its vast earnings are being declared
out in dividends on this vast accumulation of
paper capital, which represents nothing but a
means of perpetually extorting money from the
pockets of the many."
Pocasset Club's Outing First Gun in District
Leadership Battle.
The Pocasset Club, the Tammany Club of the
28th (formerly the 38d) Assembly District, of which
Sheriff Nicholas J. Hayes is leader, held its annual
outing yesterday at Witiel's Park, at College Point.
About 4600 were in attendance.
There was more than the usual Interest in the
outing this year because of the fight that is to be
made by ex-Alderman Thomas F. McCaul to wrest
the leadership from Sheriff Hayes, at the primaries
next month.
The day at College Point was spent in athletic
and other games. On the return of the club at
night there was a parade through the district,
which was ablaze with lanterns, fireworks and
Not Anxious to Sell, but Are Holding for
Higher Pnce>.
From a further investigation made yesterday into
the ico situation in this city by a Tribune reporter
it was learned that the persons who control the
supply for New York this year, and, consequently,
the price, are the speculators in Maine and in the
upper part of this state.
The consumption of Ice in this city, which has
been Increasing every summer. It was said, will be
greater this y*ar than ever before, and with the
shortage of the supply It is probable that within a
few months these speculators who are holding
their supply will be able to dispose of it to dealers
at practically their own prices. This means that
the price of ice here is almost certain to go up
even higher.
Nor are the Independent dealers the only ones
who will be compelled to purchase from this supply;
the American Ice Company, or Ice Trust, will have
no advantage over the Independents. The latter,
notwithstanding that they control four-fifths of the
output of artificial ice— the trust controlling the
other fifth— cannot manufacture ice in Quantities
large enough to meet the demand. The Independent
Ice concerns ar* charging the same prices as the
trust, that is ?* cents a hundred to dealers, and 40
The manufacturing of ice. because of the great
cost of the machinery and maintenance expenses, is
not. it was said yesterday, as profitable an enter
prise an is generally believed. So not only is tn*
output not increased to meet the stringency, but
the ice manufacturers maintain the same capacity
and then have difficulty in meeting the present
prices Nor can they risk to store up a large »-ipply
on account of the possibility of a largo crop ..t ice,
which would mean a great loss to them.
In Maine last winter there whs a decidedly open
P-ason, and Instead of 1.0T0.000 tons of i^e called
for the plants housed only 600.000. The speculators
control 100.000 tons, and they show no anxiety to
F.-ll at this time. On the Hudson River there were
harvested 1.CT2.188 tons, of which the independents
and speculators received 990.175 tons, while 692,013
tons went to the Ice Trust.
Commission Wants List of Institutions Hold
ing Public Funds.
The Banking Commission of the city, consisting
of the Mayor, the Controller and the City Cham
berlain, held a meeting yesterday and adopted a
resolution that the City Chamberlain prepare a
list of all the banks which have deposits of the
city, and the amount of each deposit.
The city officials, especially the Controller, were
disappointed at the lack of bidding at the last sale
of city bonds, and they are determined that the
next eale shall have a plentiful supply of bids if
possible. One of the things that the officials did
not like was the failure of the local banks to bid
for the bonds, especially those holding city de

Charlotte, N. C, to "The Eveninp Tim^s" s»ays that
a telephone message from Bessemer City srives the

an hour, was shot and killed by John M. Kincaid

fere in City Hall Park.
About three hundred small boys and a few score
..f passing Brooklynltes attended the open air
stereopticon lecture on tuberculosis in front of th«
City Hall. This Is the second of such lectures
planned by the Health Department.
The pictures alternated with warnings not to spit
upon the sidewalk or the parlor floor, warnings
against lack of ventilation and a too steady us*
of alcoholic beverages. The pictures showed the
interior of filthy tenement houses, damp cellars
and other frut'fui sources of infection.
Some of the warnings were in Yiddish, the crowd
always cheering the queer looking letters.
•Why shouldnt they? asked Mulligan, the park
•cop." "Shure they're all Eyetalians."
The youthful audience was clearly disappointed
at the lack of moving pictures. To show their dis
approbation most of them tried to get into the path
of the light from the lantern, throwing up their
hats or holding up their hands to cover the pict
ures. Thj police held them In check, and the exhi
bition went on for about half an hour.
