Thrn, in the ordinary partnership, a man is liahlp for all the debts of the concern. All tho Ilnhilitlwi of th<» concern nre hi* personal lia bilities. In the case of a corporation, if thf stock has been properly issu»d and Is pr . Tly paid up, and the corporation obeys the isw. there Is no indUidual liability; th- liability is that of the corporation. Xow. thon* nre busi ness advantages, and every man that h- <» knows that it is a most hollow pretenc .X in a condemnatory fashion of corpora .jn». Does my opponent disbelieve In corporations? Oh, no, not at all. Why. then, does he select the- word "corporation" as a watchword"' Why. then, without attempting to point out particular abuses or at least in his censures discriminating that which is good frem that which Is evil? Why do« Bhe use the word "corporation" with the effort to make It a stigma, to affix it as a libel, to deal with it as a suggestion of corrup tion, cf enormities, of something which should call down upon anything to which it is afflxeJ Xho Just condemnation of his fellow men? Why? Because he is honsFt? No. Because, he wants office. Fooiing people with a name! VBB MR. HEARST WAS SUED. Now, I have got a big volume here. It has something to do with "The Journal"— yea. Now, that Is a legal record. It is a record or a case In our courts. It is a record of a ca.ee ■t arose and was tried in Weatohester County; that came before the Appellate Division. -sitting In Brooklyn. It Is tho record of a case of a young married woman who was riding on her wheel, and was run ove/ by a dell\-ery wagon of '"The New York Journal" Now, you pick up "The New York Evening Journal. " and you will see the words, "The New Tort? Evening; Journal. William Randolph Would you not suppose that he owned It? Would you not suppos* he was the proprietor Dow* he not want the credit of it? t But he does not want the liability of It. ' Po when this ia^v. Mrs. Nell Werner, having b6<Mi Injured, as she claimed, by the carelessness I • the driver of this wagon, wanted to sue the employer, who, under the law, was responsible, • ■ selected the rr.an whose name was at the head of this paper and made him the. defendant In her cult- and he came into court by his at torney, who verified the answer, which stated as follows: "The defendant denies that on the 14th day of May. IW7. he v.as the owner or publisher of a newspaper, or that in or about the business of distributing or iransi-orting such newspaper he employed & certain vehicle, cart or wagon, or certain horses, drivers or other persons." And they went to court to try their rase, and thf-y tried it before Judge TCeogh, and the plain tiff put In her evidence and the defendant said, "Oh, no, Ido nr>t own that paper. I do not own that wagon. That man was not my employe, Th» paper was owned and the wagon was owned and the man was employed by a cor poration." A CORPORATION EDITOR. His point was that he was a corporation editor. Now. the plaintiff said: "TTell, this corpora ■ tlon, which we say ottos this wagon and em ploys this driver, was not a bona fide corpora tion; it was a sham; it was merely a device to escape personal liability." There was a law at that time, which we have rubstantiaTJy to-day, requiring: stock corpora tions to make reports showing the amount of tho capital stock, showing the nature of existing assets and debts, showing the amount of the debts and the amount which they did not ex ceed, showing- the amount of the assets and the amount which they at least equalled, showing the names of the stockholders; and the statute provided that the report should be signed by a majority of th«» directors and verified by the oath of th© president or vice-president and treasurer or secretary, and filed in the office of the Secretary of State and In the office of the county clerk of the county where the principal business may be located. And the plaintiff Bald: "Such reports have not been filed; there has been no attempt to comply with the law, and this is not an ordinary straight corporation it is a I device." And Judge Keogh said he would leave that question to the Jury, and In the charge of the Judge to the jury this is what he said in part, tearing upon that question: 'Now, the plaintiff claims that, though this property was in form «nd In name owned by the Morning Journal Association Corporation, though property similar to it was transferred to the Star Company, yet these transfers were not actual transfers; that the corporation, so to epeak. was an empty bell, that It was a trans fer only In form; that Mr. Hearst, the defendant, •was at the inception th« capitalist; that he was the original owner of the property; and that he Hill retains ownership, notwithstanding the form •which hp.d.;been gone through in apparently transferring the property from one V° t-h e other; In other words, the plaintiff claims that the ap pearances, however legal, that the Star Com pany was the employer of this driver on the day of the accident and the owner of the horse and wagon, the appearances do not represent the true facts, and that the real nd actual owner Is Mr. Hearst. That question Is left to you as a question of fact to decide. "Was there an actual corporation formed? Was a corporation formed in form and in substance to conduct this business and was that the in tention of forming the corporation? Was the property in fact transferred to this company? Did it become the owner of it. and while the Journal Association was the owner did it actu ally and in good faith transfer the property and ownership to the Star Company, and was the Htar Company in May, 1897. when the accident occurred, the owner?" Th: t was left to the Jury, and the Jury found The Musical Revolution caused by the Pianola Piano AN illustration of how the Pianola Piano is revolution izing the entire musical situation is shown by the tremendous increase in the output of perforated mu sic-rolls since thi6 new piano that "anyone can play " was first presented to the public. . During the past year it has been necessary for the Aeolian Company to devote an entire factory, with upwards of 110,000 square feet, to the manufacture of music-rolls exclusively. Last month the output of music-rolls showed an increase of 112 per cent, over the corresponding month of one year ago. The rapid growth of this industry is due primarily to the wonderful success of the Pianola Piano. Never has" the musical trade witnessed such rapid strides of popularity as achieved by this new type of piano that enables every mem ber of the family to enjoy the subtle fascination of personally producing music. This remarkable instrument has not only revolutionised musical progress and the manufacture of pianos, but it has also revolutionized the marketing of "used" pianos. Second-hand pianos are usually offered for sale because they are worn out or their owners have grown tired of them or they have developed some imperfection. The used pianos offered for sale at Aeolian Hall come tt us for quite other reasons. They are exchanged for the Pianola Piano, " The First Complete Piano." Our Exchange Department, therefore, offers facilities for piano owners who cannot play to exchange their instruments for pianos they can play — that anyone can play. Naturally, the earlier such exchanges are # madethe better will be the allowance which we can make. Because* the number of people who care to have a piano playable only by hand is con stantly growing less. Sooner or later such a piano will be difficult to dispose of.

Mr. Hughes — An Investigator who didn't In vestigate. — Heam'e '"American," October 5, 1906. t a verdict for the plaintiff In the ram of $25,000. But my opponent was 60 anxious to uphoM tlie rights of corporations and the rights of Individ uals who had protected themselves by corporate organization that he was not satisfied with that disposition of the mattor by the Jury and took the case to the Appellate Division of the Su preme Court. And in the Appellate Division the matter was thoroughly examined, and the various documents that had been submitted relating to the corpora tion transactions were reviewed. Among other things, the presiding justice, who wrote the opinion, said: "There was also in evidence a certificate of the Stato Controller that there was no record in his ofjftce of reports of the Morning Journal Association, the New York Evening Journal Publishing Company or the Star Company from November, 1595, to March, 1901." I may say that the trial was in 1901. Also a certificate of the County Clerk of New York County that there was not filed In hia office up to January', 1901, any annual report of tho Star Company. An annual report of "The Morning Journal" was filed In January, 189!\ 189<? and 1001, and of the New York Evening Journal Publishing Company In January, 1001. Then, to describe the transactions that had taken place and to Bhow- the entire familiarity of my opponent and his legal advisers with all the corporate machinery to which attention is directed under the name "corporations," I will read thiß extract: "On March 29. 1597. the Morning Journal As sociation, by order of the board of trustees [Mr. Hearst then president and executing a bill of Bale In consideration of $I], transferred to E'l ward H. ("lark the newspapers known and called the evening edition of 'Tho New York Journal,' with all Its property, In consideration of .$9,000. A SKRTER OP DODGES. "On April 8 he transferred the. sanw to tho New York Evening Journal Publishing Com pany. On October 12, 18'J5, at a meeting of the directors of tho Morning Journal Associa tion, Mr. Macklln, tho former president of the company, resigned, and Mr. Hearst was elocted his successor. On April 1, 1897, at a meoting of the Morning Journal Association, the defendant being present as president, and all the stock holders, a resolution was passed that the news paper 'The New York Journal' and all ttio property and assets of the company, excepting: 'Das Morgon Journal,' be transferred to the Star company In consideration of on« dolkar, all tho property of "The New York Journal" to Clurk. and on April 11 a bill of salts was executed by Mr. Hearst as president of the Morning Journal Association and by Mr. Clark as president of the Star company. 'It appears that of 300 shares of ?."W0 each of the Morning Journal Association, Mr. Hearst, on the. minutes of fhn meeting, was stated to be the owner of 36T> (that is the way It is print ed) and Palmer and Clark one share each." (Laughter.) A little later tho learned judge says: "On April 1, 1897, by resolution of the direct ors of the Star Company, the name of the jour nal known as 'The Morning Advertiser' was chana-ed to 'The New York Journal ami Adver tiser. On April 3 Mr. (lark resigned his office as president and truste- and Mr. Hearst was elected his successor. Mr. Hearst owned all the stock of the Star company, the Morning Jour nal Association and the Evening Journal Pub lishing Company, except six or eight eftiares." D. B. HILL, SAVES HEARST. Then the court goes on after a further review of the facts: "The evidence raised a fair question of facts as to tho Identity of the real owner of the- news paper which was beinp published at the time of the plaintiff's injury and the employer of Pol hemus, arid the question was very fully stated by the court and submitted to the Jury. What ever might have been th* purpose of the com ls T EW-YOKTv DATTA r TEIBUNE, SUNDAY. OCTOBER T. 1 ■\Vhen the time cam© that th« constitutionality of that Important law* (the SO-<Tnt khs law) was • attacked, as the law officer of the state, of New York 1 deemed it my duty to ask for the services of the one man who. by his diligence, his in tegrity, his ability and his courage, had brought relief to the citizens In Its enactment. I went to sco this man, and I said: "We are against a powerful corporate organization. I consider that it is my duty to ask you to assist In pre serving: that law upon the statute book." And he turned to me with that smile that we old pupils knew, and calling me by my name he paid: "Why, of course, it Is a duty lam glad to do. lam glad to help you." Night after night, putting aside other profes sional engagements, he prepared himself for that brilliant argument which, notwithstanding the assumptions of our friend on the other side, was the one thing which resulted in the keeping of the 80-cent gas law as it is to-day; thai: Is to say, the rate Is preserved, pending this litiga tion; and this /nan has neither asked nor re ceived one dollar of the state's money for that service to the state. — Attorney General Mayer, at Carnegie Hall, October 5, 1906. No one in New York will auestion tho excel lenoo of tho work dono by the counsel for the people. Mr. Charles E. Hughe*. He has drawn from the management of tho companies under litigation admissions which have damned them In the eyes of the public;. He has done perhaps everything that could b* done during the time at his disposal. If there i of time, Mr. Hughes can retire with the perfect certainty that his work has the approval arid aroused the commendation of the people. — Hearst's "American." December 80, 1905. plicated transaction In the Issue of stock of the several companies and the transfer of their property, It la evident that the transactions have resulted in great doubt and have confused the real with tho apparent ownership." Well, the Appellate Division affirmed that Judgment But my opponent was not content with anything short of a final decision as to the rights of corporations, und so his attorney em ployed the distinguished lawyer, ex-Senator David B. Hill, arul they went to the Court c( Ap peals upon thai Question, and the Court of Ap peal? laid down the law as follows. They said: "They were corporations In fact, however open to Inquiry as to their right to continue as such at the instance of the proper authorities. It was not the province of the Jury to determine whether they were incorporated In good faith or a mere form or a device on the defendant's part to escape an individual responsibility for the conduct of his business." And so they reversed the judgment and Mr. Hearst escaped the liability, thanks to the cor poration. NO COMPLAINT OF LAW. In other words, they said— and that is the law of the state as declared — men have a right to organize a corporation, and if they do not com ply with the law an to reports, that Is a matter for the state authorities to deal with. It may be a corporation of which tho organizer owns all the .siot'k. but nevertheless it Is a corporation, whoso relation lias not been dissolved If it Is a corporation In law, but there has be«n given to 1t a title to tin property, and If under the tech nical rul^s of law this employer In question, thi re Is no liability on the part of the owner of substantially all of the stock, and it Is the cor poration that is solely responsible. I do not co pi In of the law. I have nothing to say in criticism of the law, but what is the sincerity, what Is the political morality, of any man who will talk indiscriminately about corporations and then use in his business a corporation to shield him from liability and conduct his business under the safeguard which corporation organization alone can give him? Now, woghave abuses of corporate organiza tions. Does my opponent suggest that the law relating to ("iiioration organizations be repealed? Would he suggest that corpora tions should not be allowed to be organ ized? That the ail vantage of their continuance in business should be no longer obtainable? Oh, no. He would be tho last to suggest that. Not at all. He wants that In his business. No, we all recognize the advantages of corporate ownership. We all recognize the advantages of corporate organization. What do we want to <lo? We want to get rid of corporate abuses. And It is not the right way to pet rid of cor porate abuses to attcn.pt to Inflame the publlo mind by demagogical talk about corporations. NO GOVERNMENT EY HEADLINES. We do not want government by headlines. So that Is the difference between the position I take and tho position taken by my opponent I have no deslro to stir tho passions of the people, much as I learned in regard to the misuse of trust, by using catch words, by selecting classes of people for denunciation, by appealing t» the envy of the rich on tho part of the poor, and confusing the issue In Infusing an un-American class spirit. Oh, no, it Is too serious a business. We have got to deal with these questions fairly, and no one who Is not capable of dealing with them fairly e;m be trusted to deal with them at aIL We have had great abuses In Interstate com merce; we have had discriminations which have interfered with independent producers; wo have had men secretly obtaining rebates and fatten ing themselves at the expense of their less fort unate competitors who had to pay the published tariff rates; we have had a ereac awakening of public conscience; we have had a determination to enforce the law, and we have had the way pointed out how to enforce it, and tremendous progress made by the great and statesmanlike actions in the apportionment of the law and in the remedying of the law by our great leader, Tht-odore Roosevelt. In every direction of corporate activity where there Is mischief there is an opportunity for careful consl<>rntlon and hone3t effort to de vise means which will protect the people. If It Is a public service corporation which has not h.iii a sufficient supervision, if it is a corporaton which Is using the privileges obtained from the people to get a grip upon the people, can we not attend to it? Can we not deal with It without abuse? Can we not deal with It without con fusing the public mind as to the state of this country? In It necessary to have men led to think that the entire business of the American Republic is run by blacklegs, to d» a i with the problems that confront u.s? Not at all. A SERIES OF QUESTIONa I tell you, gentlemen, we have before us a question and a series of questions, to which every thoughtful student of affairs gives his n.' s( earni -t consideration, and what he Is most anxious for Is that the American people, with that Wisdom that has always characterized them, with that sober common sense which has distinguished them and brought them safely out of every crisis, will address itself to these ques o that all difficulties may be solved in a sober, calm and dispassionate manner, not awak discontent for the purpose of private gain, not awakening envy and inciting disorder in ord< r to obtain office, but disinterestedly, pa tiently, fearlessly and continuously doing his duty as a citizen. That is the duty of every American in the present hour. Mr. Hughes spoke for twenty minutes at the Brooklyn JToung Republican Club, in the John son Building, to an audience that filled the hall an the top floor to lta capacity. President Elmer G. Sa minis, the presiding officer, had 5 speech, and resolutions Indors ing the nan* of the Republican candidate had been adopted. The Rev. N. M. Waters, of the Tompkins Avenue < "ongri-gational Church, had been speaking for some ten minutes, when his addresa v as bu Menly cut off by the band play- Ing "Hail to the Chief!" and in another moment all in the hall, Including many women, wero standing and cheering air. Hughes, as, with Timothy Woodruff, he walked quickly down the centre aisle to the platform, It was nearly five, minutes before the applause Bub?l-.3-- ntly for President Fammis to introduce Mr, Hughes, who wore a black frock coat, white waistcoat, aad trousers of dark ma terial. He spoke in a voice that was not loud but was remarkably clear and penetrating, bo that b- 'id In every part of the frequently interrupted by ap plause, especially when be referred to the Presi dent and to Lincoln. ADDRI3SSES YOUNG* REPUBLICANS. Mr. Hughes said In part: Fellow publicans My first vote was cast In ISS!, In the city of Brooklyn, tor the Republican candidate for Mayor, and I have been a con sistent Republican ever since. I have been hot with displeasure at some things I have seen in politics, and have glowed with pride when I think of the splendid administration of Presi dent Roosevelt. Then has never been a time In the history of our country when the Re publican party has had the chance It has now to do something, and its leaders will bo true to the trust reputed in them by the people. I ask your enthusiastic support— to rise to tho opportunity. It Is a great pleasure to me to. aUJfMN the r.sj y, ■ - ii — — • « >■■ .. FEW people are experts in judg ing the purity and quality of whiskey. They don't have to be with John Jameson Whiskey Purity is the keynote of its 125 years of popularity. young Republicans. We want a clean, ready for-service organization for the publjo good Others are bandying with the name of a good man— who had the best of principles— for the purpose of fooling the people. We know what Lincoln stood for. Let us live to up it. *•«*« let the banner trail in the dust. The principles In this campaign are truth. Justice and fair deal ing to all. Look at the splendid record In Con gress. Do you understand what has been done. Think of it! The meat bill, the 80-cent gas bill, the reforms in insurance management. These things enable us to go before the people. \\ c have something here that has to do with the very foundation of the government, and we must be ready to deal with these sanely, not to make capital out of them for ourselves. I am proud of the leadership of our great Pres ident, and I promise that if a Republican Gov ernor is elected at the next election he will he the Governor, acting according to his own con science. That he will be rfhe Governor of the state; that there will be no private wires to the council chamber. Isn't that what you want a%a Republican Governor? Are we not Americans first, and the first quality of a good Republican Is to be a good American. Now, we've got some active work to do. We want a full registration. We want to call out the reserves, and you know it's hard to get them out; but they are good people, and they will give the statistical men some hard figuring to do If they do come out this year. Don't forget the small things. Let us be active — not petulantly, not In a superior manner. They are our fellow citizens; what we want to do is to make them understand that we want to do the right thing. This appeals to every man. that the most im portant thing in the government is that it shall not be prostituted to selfishness. When a house is on fire, get a pall of water and try to put tha fire out; then come down and talk over family affairs. We have no boss. We shall do our best to correct the evils that exist. We shall deal with them wisely, soberly and, above ail things, honestly. Next was the tent meeting in Wllliamsburg. It was a long jump "crosstown," and going thero the party lost Its way. Finally Chairman Wood ruff suspected that the car was headed toward Coney Island or some other place equally remote. He got out, found a man who knew some thing about the neighborhood, and finally the party got on the right road. When they reached the tent It was thronged, and a great shout went up as the audience saw the candidate and his companions. HUGHES AT TENT MEETING. Nathan I* Levi. who was speaking. Introduced Mr. "Woodruff as "the next United States Sen ator from New York." Mr. Woodruff spoke briefly, urging a heavy registration, and then In troduced Mr. Hughes, who spoke as follows: Fellow Citizens: This is a people's campaign. This Is a campaign for those principles which are more Important to the people of the state of New York than any issues that have been dis cussed during my memory- W« live In a time when the consciences of the people have been aroused. We live in a time when, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, th© busi ness men of our country are determined that business shall be transacted according to proper principles. We live hi a time when the business men of the country and all the people of the country who Intelligently consider the affairs of the na tion are determined that our politics shall bo managed without bosses; that our officers shall act without dictation; that our government shall be run without interference on the part of any special Interest. We staqd for that, and we do not propose that vested interests and that honest endeavor to right thing* that are wrong shall be capitalised for anybody's private advantage. We do not propose that the correction of the evils that exist shall be mado use of In a manner simply to Inflame, aided by the distortion of facts in the Interest of a selftph candidacy. Look at this, that I read In last night's paper. Yes, "The Journal." This Is what It saya about me: ABOUT GAS RETAINER. "Last spring, with a considerable flourish, Mr. Hughes was retained by Attorney General Mayer In connection with the gas swindle." Then, after referring to Mr. Mayer. It goes on to say: "Do you know -what Mr. Hughes did? The moment he was retained to fight Ryan's Gas Trust ho went to Europe. He stayed In Europe with the retainer of the people in his pockets." Think of that. Think of that. Who told him? Now, do you want to know the fact? The fact Is I have not had and I have not asked a cent. When Attorney General Mayer came after the Institution of the suit by the Consolidated Gas Company, and after an application had been made for an Injunction In the Federal Court and the preliminary order had been ordered, he asked me to give my assistance because of my familiarity with some of the facta and to argue the case before Judge La oombe. For two weeks we labored together day and night In the preparation of papers, in the preparation of argument, and we made #jur argument. We did what we could to maintain the law which wo had been Instrumental In procuring the passage of, and which I sincerely hope and expect will be sustained, and when he came to retain me, instead of his putting money in my pocket, the subject of money was not dis cussed, and I went to Europe to get a rest that you would know I ought to have. I did not have the retainer of Attorney Gen eral Mayer In my pocket. Now, what do you think of that sort of campaign material? He did not care whether It was true, if he thought somebody might have believed It to be true. Ho did not care whether it was true or false, if he thought he might get a vote by in ducing somebody to believe that I had betrayed the people. PAIR METHODS DEMANDED. Oh, we want to make things right, and they are being made right, but they have got to be made right by fair people; they have got to be made right In the American manner, and there Is not anything American that is not Just and square. We have to-day some things upon which the interests of the public have been centred. I am proud to be able to stand before you and look you In the eye and know that you know I represent some of these things. If I am elected Governor of this state the door of the executive chamber will swing open to every citizen; and it will be the front door, and there will be no back door. When we started In last fall on the insurance investigation what was the proper course to pro ceed? To begin, first with a denunciation of all insurance corporations? with talk about cor porations, the Iniquity of corporations, govern ment of corporations, with the idea that you could run the insurance business without a cor poration, th v the idea that It was not essential there should be an Insurance corporation? No man would do that unless ha wanted to hold fust Ban ti *** B ° m6 advnnta by disturbing No; we started In with the Idea that here Is a great business; everybody almost In the country knows and feels the importance of it and wants miJt* 8 <! c # ure: he want * to know that if death strikes him those whom he loves will be pro- Tfjciea, and th promise that has been Issued to mm by a great concern will be fulfilled.
