LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Former Comrade of Oneida's Congressman
Sends Word of Cheer from Boston.
I The Tribune.
Sir: There are many natives of the Empire State

the Congressional contest in Central New York Is

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

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

that the -olid, thinking people of Mr. Sherman's

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

In New England the Republican policy has been
In ever;- state to re-elect faithful servants to both

WHY A WORKINGMAN IS FOR HUGHES.
Says That Hearst Is in the Game for Hearst
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

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

character of our Judiciary. Hearst's hypocrisy Is
again evident when he wanted a Huckleberry

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

hands of honest men not political partners or po

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.

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
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
