John Ford, the Independence League's candidate
fcr Attcrr.ey General, declared st a meeting last
night ■ Ze!tn»r> Ha::. :">th street and Third ave
nue, that be would stand or. the ticket and would
be elected. A newspaper man remarked that his
declaration Implied he was going to stay on the
ticket despite the talk of fusion with the Demo
crats, which would probably mean the annihila
ton cf every candidate on the Hearst ticket e-xeept
Hearst himself. Ford. then, declared with em
I *"• you to say for me that no matter what
barrens lam on the ticket to stay I have no in
tention cf getting off. I expect to 'be elected. This
talk of combinations is th« gossip of the press.

ticket. W. R. Hearst was expected to speak, but
he was not there. L«ewis Stuyvesant Chaaler, can
didate for Lieutenant Governor; Clarence J.
Shearn and C. A Wencile- were some who made
addresses. Mr. Ford opened his speech by de
t^aring that the Independent League would flrht
to the last ditch the "corporate greed of the

politicians of both c&rties."
Mr. Chanler salt! ilcC leilan was r.ot elected aril
that a man who held office under such conditions

Declare* Xexcstead Hired Thugs in
the 4th District.
Although Herbert Parsons made three speeches
In widely separated Assembly districts last night
In his aprx-al to enrolled Republican voters for
■upport at the coming primaries, his chief a«S-
Ar-sf was In < #>ntral Palace Hall, at No. 66
Sheriff street, to the supporters of Philip Ro**n
thal. candidate for the leadership of the 4th Pi»
tfiet Most of the speeches at that meetin*
■were In Yiddish, and before Mr Parsons was ln
tro^urt-.i Mr Roeenthal p.-nmised to repeat
what the president of the county committee had
to say in language that could be understood by
the bu!k of the audience.
Mr. Parsons had something to say about the
performances of "thugs and ex-convicts" In the
service of Jacob A. Newstead. Mr. Itosenthal'3
opponent In last year's primaries in the district.
and everybody In the crowd seemed to under
stand what he meant, end shouted approval.
Mr. Parsons said:
I am well aware of what happened here last year.
•nd know that the primary that was conducted
was a Joko on the name of primary and a dis
grace to American civilization. I know that Mr.
Newstead's horde of thugs and ex-convlcts voted
on other people's names and terrorized them and
"tuffed the ballot boxe*. The methods pursued by
Mr. Newstead and h-j agents were worthy of the
Black Hundreds employed by the Czar of Russia
against your corelijriomsts. and I did not suppose
I. .a' In this city of New Tork men calling them
selves Americans would resort to such practices.
That th'v did 1 now know. I hive been told so by
lTrpartial ■Mill nee. I kr.ow It from men who were
with Mr. Newstead. Why. even Newstead himself
said to me "I was always on 'he level until I saw
they bad me beat, and than I took the bull by the
horns '
Now he Is ap-iin trying to retain the leadership.
W;:i the Republican-* of this district permit him?
I believe not. As against him. an offender ajcair.st
the be- principle of republican govtrnment, whlca
Is a fair ballot, you have Mr R^enthal. a youn»
man t f attainments fend fine character. Even Mr.
Rosenthal was d«»ceived by Mr. Newstead last rear,
ard supposed that things would be on the level.
as Newstead profess* they would be. Mr. Rosen
thai was on Newstead's county committee ticket,
but the Instant lit be learned the methods that
Nrw«t«*ad had used be resigned, because he knew
th.-vt h« was not honestly elected.
Mr. Newntead thinks that he can profit by the
terrorism thet he employ*-! last year, and believes
th*t that still has Its effect, and that th» people
will fear to vote. I assure you that no such meth
ods will he tolerated, that any attempt to create
disorder on his part will h« Instantly punfshed and
that every enrolled Republican of this district will
■■» -"llowfrd to cast hH ballot at the primary In
pence ard security. Those vho» duty it is to en
force the law will protect you this year. I know

I became president of the co'irtty P(inim"t» last
year because 1 knew that President Roosevelt
thought I was the man for the place. He knew
that I wouM not be the tool of men who would
use the party for selfish pocket-eervlng purposes.
No wonder, then, that that kind of people In the
party are anxious to get rid of me. President
Rnr>?*relt a couple of w»eks e?o invited me to
OyFter Bay in order to show that his confidence
In me cor'tinued and that he hoped for my re
electton. You know what he did In the Klshfref*
matter You know what le h%B done In behalf
of the "square deal" for ail When I was In Oyster
Bay I told him of the methods thai were pursued
here lust year to defeat the will of the people, and
!t was natural'y difficult for Mm to believe It. He
wants an no-est party srgaai«s.tkm. He looks to
you to do your part t- rive It to him.
T!^e tssue ts perfectly plain. I sperially stated
it to Mr. Qu'.ptr. my opponent In the county, who
is the representative of the street railway Inter
ests when I wrote to htm ' "•• months »«o a.
moj' In reply to ■ letter that *■* wrote to the
President a copy of which he had sent 1 1 me. I
wrnte ro Mm th-n that I wanted to se- the oriranl
ratton of N»w York Comity loyal to the President
urd that if Mr. Qu'ffg ghouli succeH In the county
his pi:ope«s would >•« considered a defeat Of Presl
d»»nt Roosevelt Tf you wish the county orcari^a
tlon to b* known to be loyal to the President then
you must <1o your part here and vote the ticket
neaded by Philip Bthal for leader.
Before coins to I .-riff street Mr. Parsons
Fpoke to a crowd of Republicans In a garden In
"West CTtli street H- said the only home rule
candidate fcr Republican leader of the 13th Dis
trict was AMerman John J. Farrell. and that
the other candidate for leader. Alderman John
J. Har. was running merely as a candidate for
Lemuel E. Qul^g.
"And why does Quiff? wart a substitute lead
er in this district "" Mr Parsons asked. "Whose
Interests are Quire's interests? Who Is Quigga
master — the man who Is furnishing his cam
paign expenses tn this fight, whose picture Is
always over his desk?"
■•Ryan." yelled the crowd.
Mr. Parsons said Mr Qu'sg wanted to Ret
control cf the County Committee In order that
he and his master could pet by stealth what
they could rot win openly in legislation at Al
bany and at the City Ha!!.
After leaving the Sheriff street meeting Mr.
Parsons went to No. 5 Ablngdon STur«re and
made a short speech In support of Assemblyman
Ezra P. Prentice, who is con*estlns» the leader
ship of the 25ih District with Richard van Cott.
Disapproved of Resolution Offered
by E. A. Alexander.
The Associa'Jon of the Bar of the City of New
York took negative action last r.lght at a »pe
cial meetir.s on a resolution Introduced by Ed
ward L Alexander, who. as told in The Tribune,
wished to ur^^ that young men be elected to
places in the inferior courts and be promoted, as
their talents in:r<?iiSP<S. to the higher tribunals.
There was considerable speculation as to Just
what attitude the action of the association took
In regard to the judiciary nominators and their
selections for non-partisan election. It was sal i
that the nominators were practically supported
by the inaction of the association, or. In other
words, they were supported by Indirection.
About two hundred members of the associa
tion were present. Lewis rasa Ledyard pre
sided In ':.- absence of the president, John L.
Cadwalad* r. Mr. Alexander introduced the fol
lowing resolution:
That It is th* opinion and will of the associa
tion that, regani'.ess of pan politics or politi
cal affiliations, whether or not judges, who have
faithfully and acf=ptably served In inferior
courts and have had Judicial experience ar.d
training which has rendered them useful anil
valuable pub!i<- - rvants. should obtain a prefer
ence for the Pujireme Court nominations.
Mr Alexander was the only speaker In favor
of the resolution. Several spoke against It, how
ever, among then being Henry A. Foster and
"William A. Purrlnpton. Those In opposition
h*»!d that the q-jes'tlon was a purely academic
one, and that It was not deferable at this time
to take any action. Some nobody seem
ingly knowing who it was— moved to lay the
resolution on the table, and the motion was
carried. The laying on the table acts as a final
disapproval of the Idea. No other business was
It wa« Fai-1 that It was doubtful If Urn asso
ciation took any action regarding the judMary
this fall. The n*xt meeting will by" held on
thf» second Tuesday in October.

Will Put Up No Ticket, but Sup
port Good Men.
The active work of the Citizens Union will begin
a* aopn as the primaries have determined who the
leadl^s cf the various districts are to be; that is to
say. »ho will dominate the nominating conventions.
The Citizens Union does not propose to name any
candidates of Its own this fall, but will work to
obtain the renomination of members of the Legis
lature who have dene good work, and the r.onur.a
tlon of worthy men In the place of those the Citi
ten* Union believes have not been faithful to tho
interest* of the pe< pie.
The leaders of the various districts will be In
formed that If certain men are renomlnated they
will be opposed by the Citizens Union, and that If
other men are renomlnated they may expect the
support of the Citizen* Union. R. Fulton Cutting,
in explanation of the attitude of the Citizens Union,
Si..d yesterday:
While at present the Goveraorstiij) Is the absorb
ing question. It '•■ Important that attention should
be riven to the Jud.clary and tiie Legislature. Wttb
the uncertainty that exists In the prc««'ii contest
the parties cannot afford to tenure tae advantages
of putlnc up good local candidates to strengthen
the whole ticket.
Our committee on legislation tor the last two
years ha 9 Blade a caretul study o; the records of
tti« members of the Lo*g'.B'.atur« from New York
and at ti:e end of the session puohsi.ed a summary
of their legtslatlve conduct. We purpose now mak

Ownership men upon their records, irrespective of
party affiliations. £lach record speaks for Itself.
and In the campaign we purpose giving It the wid
est poshlble circulation. It U tinir that something
should be done toward defeating members w::o are
conspicuously unlit, and at the aaine time to make
sure that those who are eminently qualided for
itb'.sUt-ve duty are not turned down.
Jullua Henry Cohen, chairman of the legislative
committee of the Citizens Union, said:
Our opinions regarding legislators are sought and
we believe mat our opinions have weight. The old
Idea cf the legislator was that, no matter i.ow
good work he did. he would be pounded. anywu.:\
end -it the only rewards were these- that were
In.; roper. Now It Is an Incentive to do good
work to know that It will be appreciated and pub
lished by the Citizens Union.
Will Give $IJ)Q9 for Evidence of
Illegal Voting.
Timothy L. Woodruff announced yesterday that
he would give n.OUO reward for evidence leading to
the arrest and conviction of any one Illegally vot
ing or attempting so to do at the coming Repub
lican primaries in Brooklyn. Mr Woodruff also
r«ta.ned a lawyer and consulted Deputy Commis
sioner Arthur J. O'Keeffe. of the Polica Depart
In speaking of the methods being used In the
present fight for the control of the county organi
zation. Mr. Woodruff said;
I know one of the men to whom Dady offered
J."«' to begin a fight in his electloo district. I know
that he refused, and that Dacy askej him far the
name of another man. 1 know that the other man
•went about the district offering $5 apiece for votes.
Before the day Is over 1 ext«?ct to have- the affi
davit of the man to whom Dady made the direct
offer. I also expect to have tne affidavits of men
who have been asked to sell their votes for 6 and
1.0. When I obtain these affidavits I shall take
immediate action.
That is only one case among dozens and scores
which are being brought to my attention every
day. I was about to say that I knew of one hundred
similar ca»es I don't want to say one hundred
because there may i>e only n!nety-e!ght or tilnety
nina aiieciflc Instances, but sucn case* are cominy
in all the time. Here Is a specific story which I
will relate, confining myself to things that 1 knew:
William Fronmeyer Is an has been an active
Republican in the 3d District. It was Fn>nr:i*>yer
who first suggested to me Percy A. B.iker as a
proper man to make the fight against Wheeler for
the leadership.
Frohmeyer held a position as deputy superin
tendent of elections under Morgan, a: a fixed sal
ary of $1,200 a year. He was 1:1 here every day.
and frequently In my hearing has given expression
to epithets of contempt fcr Wheeler.
Yesterday rooming Fronmeyer turned in his
badge aa deputy superintendent of el«ctior.s, re
signed his place and came out for Uady and
Wheeler. You may say from me that I do not
believe moral suasion caused Fruhmeyer's sudden
In sir election districts of the 3d Assembly Dis
trict I have caused an Investigation to be made
and I have procf that of the I'tZ enrolled Repub
lican voters 104 are either dead or Ineligible to
vote because of non-residence In the places they
have enrolled from.
Michael J. Dafiy. who Is opposing Mr. Woodruff,
when shown the above statement, declared:
Yesterday I •aid that Tim was a liar. To-day he
Is a mad dog He can't help his yelping and his
frothing at the mouth because he Is mad "•}**
he •«»>• is absolutely and unqualifiedly faUe Tell
him to come on witn Ms affidavits. If he gels arn
davtts they will t>« as fraudulent as everything h*
says and does. But I have affidavits of money
offered by Woodruff , not in tens, iwemies or fifties.
but in i. .01.... *r.d if this right Is coin? al-m*
that line I will produce them. Wny Woodrurf
has literally placarded certain election districts
with money, and. furthermore. 1 am able and
willing at the proper time to prove what I say.

Attorney General Authorizes Him to
Keep Primaries Clean.
Albany, Sept. 14— Attorney Geaeral Mayer In
response to a communication from District At
torney Darrtn, of Queens County, askia* for au
thority to act promptly In connection with any
attempted violation of the law at the primaries
on Tuesday next, to-day authorized that official
to take immediate action on any violation of Ci«
law within his Jurisdiction. In his letter District
Attorney Darrin declares that representations
have been made to him that an effort will be
ma.de to "manipulate the vote- ar.d canvass at
the approaching primaries."
District Attorney Darrtn explained th. conditions
In Queens County last night, saying:
I :n Queens OMBtf have be-w norpr:
crran'zaUon and wrote to Attorney General Mayer
tx'taVnfnV the situation and a.k:«.« for pow.r fa*
re-lied r'virg me power to do a* I saw fit and

"Tou are practically appointed & Deputy Attorney
General then"" Mr. Darrtn was asked.
"No; not that by nature of appointment. I am
■Imply given the power to represent the Attorney
General and do what I see at to keep things aa>
they should be."
Speaker Cannon Compare* "Kick
erg" to Mule.
Chicago, Sept. 14.— Speaker Cannca made a
short speech before the Republican Stats Com
mittee, which met here yesterday. Mr. Cannon
i was on his way to his horn* at DarvtUe. 11l .
from Michigan.
The reform force*, to whom the aseaksr gave
most of his attention, were classified by htm as
"the kickers," and he gave them additional
cause to charge him with disrespect for their
efforts by comparing them to a celebrated mule.
concerning which It never was known "whether
he wis brmyln» because he was kicking, or kick
' Ing because he was braying."
Furthermore, he :at i that. Inasmuch as their
' object seemed to be the Immediate reformation
of the entire world, they were hopelessly beyond
argument, and. therefore, the best course for a
sensible man to pursue with regard to teem was
to "leave them alone.** Continuing, he said.
This is a mighty Important campaign for the
Republican party, and we've got enough to take
up all our attention with thing* that are going.
to happen right now, without bothering about
i things that can't be mended, or with things that
1 ate going to happen two years from not*.
Some people are a great deal bothered about
what is eolng to happen In 1908. Mr. Bry»n Is
bothered. He was met the other day In New
i York by a great crowd, who came ti g*th-*r to
gre«-t him on his return from Europe
Now. Mr Bryan had been travelling, and we

seeing different men and countries, tut be no
sooner makes a speech than we find h m full of
the sime old heterodox notions and Ideas.
Bui as soon as Mr. Bryan discovers that thee»
irteas are rot altogether popular with his party t ,
then be begins to go asy on them. No* he says /
that, of course, he s right, but that nevertheless '
he will accept a nomination from the Democrat^*
party even if It does not adopt his ideas,
he tells them he right. and they coma to i. In
the future.
Now. we've got better things to do than to
bother about wfcafs going to happen two years
from tow. Those things will take care of them
selves ■ hen the time comes. What the Repub
lican party has to do is to take care of the thlnss
that are up now. as . that's what It Is doing.
