Sir: There are many natives of the Empire State r;x residing In Boston, Springfield. "Worcester, Occcord and other New England cities to whom the Congressional contest in Central New York Is cf profound Interest, easily sharing honors with the result ca the state ticket in Massachusetts. Especially to scores of veterans of the Civil and Spanish-American wars is even th« remote pos sibility of the defeat of their devoted friend and champion, die Hon. James S. Sherman, most depr«-£s:r.g. and scarcely a day passes without my receiving an earnest inquiry by mail or in a chance meeting in the street as to Mr. Sherman's pros pects. In touch os I am and ever have been with my coniraces of the Civil War, Army of the Potomac. wtether residing in New York, New England or tie Middle West. I believe I am. in a position to know hew they feel respecting Congressman Sher x^&s's cterspaig-n, and I can say In all candor that ec tr.err:oer of Congress stands higher in the estl natioa. of the veteran (no matter of what political affiliation) man James Schoolcraft Sherman. On Thursday last (and I mention this as an 11 lustration of the point I am endeavoring to estab lish^ I met a Democratic comrade, who la a native c* Oneida County, but served In the gallant 63th >>>■» York Volunteers when Colonel Corcoran was Its intrepid commander, and who. like the other gallant Irish boys of that noted regiment who know him. has a genuine love for Oneida County's zesjous and capable Congressman. In the course of our bat he said sententiously: "I'm an Irish sasn and I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, but if I had a thousand votes every one of them would be cast for 'Jim' Sherman. His opponent, judging by Us name, may be an Irishman like myself, but if I could spare the time from my business I'd go to L'tlca and Rome to-morrow, and I'd tell the veteran soldiers and sailors and all their voting relations and friends to cut loose from, parties in November next and not only vote but work for Mr. Sherman's re-election. He has done every thing he could for them; now let them show their gratitude by insuring a handsome majority for Eta In bis tenth candidacy for the House." Since 1S?O I have addressed my comrades and others la every Northern state east of the Mis souri River, save Rhode Island, and first came to Boston In UK to deliver the Memorial Day ad sresa on Bunker Hill. Hence I am In a situation to know how the "old boys" feel toward one whom they consider peculiarly and emphatically their friend. You would be surprised to learn of the en thufilaani shown by men who went to other states Jrora - elda County many years ago, but for whom. ngreasman Sherman had worked in various ways anfi ruccecsfully, never sparing himself. As c native of Oneida County and desirous that the uenoe at Central New York in governmental aSalrs shall b«- not only maintained at Its present exalted standard but materially extended. I trust that the -olid, thinking people of Mr. Sherman's district will Imitate the example of New England ■ad moat of the Middle T\'e*t in keeping food men of experience at their respective posts. While say la<? nothing of a dipparaging nature respecting Congressman Sherman's opponent, no one would believe for a moment that he could represent the aiatrl • as well as Mr Sherman has done. Here In New England the Republican policy has been In ever;- state to re-elect faithful servants to both houses of r. press as Ions: as they desire such re jection, the result being an aggregation of ability and experience whloh ever pulls unitedly and forcefully for New England at all times and under *lit?the.vot«r» of Central New York take the foregoing to heart and that they will ultimately «mtt>~» with the lamented Lincoln that It Is th« height of unwisdom to swap horses when crossing * stream la the honest cwg««» c PAVEY.

Sir: I have gone all over the counties of Ulster. Dutches*. Orange, Putnam and Westchester and I believe we Bhall have a delightful surprise on Elec tion Day. One afternoon I met seventeen Demo crats in a little town of "Westchester, and every one of them was going to vote for Hughes. One old Democrat, seventy-one years old, said he could hardly wait until Election Day to vote against Hearst. Over near "Hell's Kitchen." where I live, I find numerous men who formerly voted for Hearst now ready to go the other way. I fully believe, from observation and talk among the people, that West chester County will go 10.000 for Hughes. VOICES FROM THE NORTH. Have you heard th« farmers talking ©a LaJi* Erie's frifld shore T There Is trouble in the party, and they are looking- oat for gore. There la loud and thund'rous music from th* plains of Genesee; Uncle Reuben «hake» his fingers when he say", "No Hearst for me'" From the OataklUe' snow capped mountains, with their furs about their neck. From th« lan«i of tha Eeopus, you can bet they'll be on seek! It <io-9n't look like Jackson or Jefferson to me: If Lincoln saw ••Willie" Hearst he'd surely cllrr.b a tree; And Grovnr <"lcve!u.nd would give one of those awful "thinks." And then he'd vots tf.e ticket, with two peculiar winks : For the world la <-ver teaching- the story day by day That the show is rather "on the fritz," and a lot will stay away The quail in yonder cornfield sing* "Bob 'White." Toil can bet That "Bob" Vat Wyck la wishing now he'd come In from out the wet. Ar.d every Democrat who's sure h» will not draw a prize Is looking at the ticket and making "goo-goo" eyes.

Says That Hearst Is in the Game for Hearst Only. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Permit me to call attention to some reasons which prompt me— a lifelong Democrat and a work lr gman — and should prompt every Democrat and all worklngmen to vote apainst Hearst and the Hearst-Murpky-ronr.ors start- comDlne and the Murphy-Hearst Judiciary deal: First— Hearst Is in the game for Hearst only. He does not hesitate to ruin the Democratic party. His methods are selfish and he Is ready to barter a.in' sell judicial candidates and make all kinds of deals to further his selnsh Interests. Second— He Is trying to fool the working classes by his socialistic and communistic stylo of conduct ing his campaign. He is inciting riot and discord and is preying upon what he believes is the Igno rance or the worklngrmt-n. The worklngmen of to day are too intelligent to be fooled by Hearst's la fl< Thlrd-- H^urst has gone into the Murphy camp, and no self-respecting Democrat who voted for Hear«t last year because he said the Tammany boss jthould be In stripes can vote for Hearst now in the face of hS deal with that political bo . whom he said he would put In Sing Sing at the fl Fou'rtr'- Hearst shows his hypocrisy in indorsing Krlanger and Platzak- trust lawyers- Hr lancer belongs to Sullivan, and Hearst cannot afford to oppose Sullivan further, and Platzek and Hendrlck belong to Murphy, and Murphy would order tl-.o leaders to cut Hearst if he opposed these " Fifth— Hearst's hypocrisy Is again evident when. in his na\Dera lie does not say a word in protest of Tiradv's and Murphy's turndown of the Democratic Senator from the 16th District, for being upright and oDDGslng Qrady's nefarious scheme* in the F^rL'e and substituting Aldermen McCall. a pro t/iVof both "Little" and "Biff" Tim.

Sixth— Hearst's attempted indorsement of Rosal sky shows another d<-al of a Judgeshlp for Hearst votes. Hearst wanted to fool the East Side voter by saying Hearst Is for Rosalsky and Rosalsky Is or Hearst. I do not question Rosalsky'g fitness iOr crnce, but he should have repudiated this act promptly. A deal with a Judicial candidate In re turn for Hearst votes is not likely to uplift the character of our Judiciary. Hearst's hypocrisy Is again evident when he wanted a Huckleberry Rnad candidate like Breen. Seventh— More important than the Governorship is the selection of honest and competent Judges A Governor holds office for only two years, and Judges hold office fourteen years; and every poor man, as well a* rich should see to It that disputes r»gnrd!ng life And liberty and decisions as to the enjoyment of the fruits of one's earnings are in the hands of honest men not political partners or po litical counsel or persons named in reward for ser vices to political bosses. We want no Judges who have bought nominations from Tammany Hall, and no Judges whom Hearst has forced on the ticket as his share of the Plunderbund. I vote for Hughes and a clean Judiciary Aw HT T^ Sc? E^°l^ ATIC "-OHKINGMAN. NEW HOSTLERY TO OPEN. Hotel Knickerbocker Will Be Ready on Wednesday.

A feature of the dlnlnj? and flower rooms will be the electric fountains by MacMonnles. ATTACK ON MOSQUITO SUCCESSFUL. Part of Staten Island Relieved of Pests by Dr. Doty's Work. The results of the work of Dr. Alvah H. Doty, Health Officer of the T'^rt of New York, against the mosquitoes of Staten Island promise an early and complete relief from this pest. Owing large ly to the Interest and co-operation of Mayor Mc- Clellan, the Board of Estimate granted an ap propriation of $17,000 las' November to carry on this work, and a good degree of success has already been achieved. Dr. Doty came to the conclusion that SO per cent of the mosquitoes in Staten Island, New Jersey and other points along the Atlantic Coast were the "Culex solilcitans," better known as th-_' ••Btrtped-l^sged," "salt water" or "Atlantic Coast" mosquitoes. He found that all mosqui toes deposit their eggs on the surface of the water except the "sollicitaos," but the latter breed only m salt water swamps and their eggs are deposited upon the earth and remain with out further change until covered with water, when the development of the winged insect rap idly follows. From all of which It appeared that if the salt marshes along the coast were drained and the breeding places done away with no mosquitoes would be bred. Accordingly, the appropriation secured, Dr. Doty promptly set about draining the swamps. The region below South Bead and about Great Kills, some ten square miles in extent, was chosen for the beginning and three hundred miles of ditches were laid out. The marshes were drained successfully and the results have i>=en remarkable. At the Rich mond County Country Club house and on the golf links in this neighborhood, for Instance where In previous years mosquitoes had been so bad as to lnterfero with enjoyment of outdoor uports, this year there have been practically no moequitoes. Where formerly mosquito bars were used in nearly all houn-s In the neighbor hood, this year the bars have come down and houses have been practically free of these In sects. The work has been greatly extended, and at this time all but a limited part of the swamp land around the Fresh Kills, on the west side of Staten Island, has been drained. The "striped-leSßTed" mosquitoes are an en tire^- different species from malarial mosquitoes $trsfitom*fa <T/mc Store Closes at 5:30 P.
