League for turning: dorm the labor candidates
In practically every district. A general move
ment ainor.fr laboring men and members of
unions to right against Hearst was also pre
dicted, and some of the men who have been the
most enthueiastlo supporters of Hearst for his
supposed stand for labor were the most out
spoken last rJs'nt against him. ,: ' ' '
Join Garri'.y. president of the railroad iron
workers, in an Interview with a Tribune reporter
last night at the Independence League head
quarters, said:
I think that the labor people are now wise
a? to Mr. Hearst's real sentiment toward them.
There was a doubt in the minds of my fellow
laboring men whether or not Mr. Hearst per
sonally may not have been misled. But now
that his crowd has thrown down Mr. Rock good
and hard, it looks as if Hearst had no use for
labor except when it suited his purpose. I don't
think that the Gilsey House people would have
indorsed Mr. Rock and the other labor candi
dates in the first place if they had not been
forced to do bo by James H. Hatch, chairman
of the executive board of the Central Federated
Union, and recent developments Fhow that they
,» hand«=>d a lemon to Hatch by pretending to yield
to his demand. When the Central Federated
t'nion meets next Sunday I will give you a tip
that there will be something doing. It will be
C. hot meeting, but by the time it is over action
v.!:; have been taken which will fully avenge
Mr. Hock. I make the prediction that the Cen
tral Federated Union will never indorse Hearst,
and that body represents 200,000 organized la
boring men.
HEARST MUSIC XOX-I'XIOX
Singers at Meetings Not in Organi
zation, Says Leader.
The evident original intention, now that the hand
Of Mr. Hearst and the manager* of the Indepen
dence League has been shown, to put the labor
Den on the league ticket and then do sway with
them has deepened the dlsguest of m.my in the
ranks of lafcor. who are leaving the Hearst forces
In platoons daily. This, coupled with the effort
made at the "labor" Heaist demonstration on
Thursday, is «tea<!Jly weakening the slight hold
Hearst may have had on th« unions. Henry De
Veaux. president of the Actors' National Protective
Union, who is a prominent member of the execu
tive committee of the Independent Labor Party,
and was a strong Hearst man until Mr. Hearst
showed that he had no use for the labor candidates.
said last evening:
As soon as we realized th«t the Independent La
bor Party was going to b« turned down I realized
that labor men on the ticket were going to get the
double cross"— «nd they did with a vengeance.
Mr. Hearst is playing the dirtiest campaign that
was rver conducted. He seemed to think that he
could do as ne liked, as far as the unions were
roreemed. h 0 has don» ro many Ings to alienate
honest labor men that 1 cannot see how any de
cent labor man who thinks for himsell at all could
vote for him. He makes the mistake of his life if
he expects that the working people like to be hum
tugged. ' ;'".;.•
Mr. De \>a:;i taen made the assertion that with
the exception cf one man theie was not a union
singer at the Madison Square Garden or outside*
of it on Monday night. There was not one of the
hundreds of meetings of the Independence League
clubs, besides, he said, in which there was sing
ing, where the professional singers were union sing
ers. "I would not have brought the matter up."
he »aid, "but for the statement of James Holland,
of the Eccentric Association of Firemen, who says
he is a Hearst man, that union men who do not ;
support Hearst must either be fools or In the pay
of the Republican party. Since when hne Mr.
Hearst had the right to assume that he has the
labor unions by the throat? The Republican party
in not buying people It Is conducting a clean,
dignified campaign. I never sought an office and
no one could buy me. The parade of last night
was a disgraceful attempt to impose on the public
the Idea that the unions were with Hearst. It
was almost pitiful. The Kockmen and Excavators'
Union has a membership of 25.000, and was eup
r>s<»<j to he one of the unions to parade, yet the-Je
were only about two hundred of the members in
the parade. Most of the unions which were sup
posed to parade had the sam« proportion of parad
ers. In BOOM cases a crowd of boys, not one of
whom was old enough to vote, was supposed to
represent a. i.nicr.. If Mr. Hearst thinks The work
ing people can swallow things like that he must
have a small idea of their intelligence. H*» will
be the most badly disappointed man on Election
Day In the country if he thinks he is going to fee
elected. He seemed to think he was po sure oT

LABOR PARADE A "FLIMFLAM."
Unions Announced by Hearst Papers as Tak
ing Part # Were Not in It.
The organized caseworkers of this city were
complaining all day about the methods used
by the Hearst boomers to make it appear that
tlie meeting held at Madison Square Garden on
Thursday night was to be regarded as an author
ized indorsement by the local unions of Mr.
Hearst's candidacy.
■The Hearst papers," said Secretary Oberwager
of the Workingmen'B Political League, "have pub
lished statements that certain unions marched
from their headquarters to the mass meeting,
when these unions actually took no part in the so
called parade. The printers, particularly, feel
grieved that the Hearst papers should announce
that their union, 'Big Six,' was in the line of
march with 1,000 members following the president
of the union, James J. Murphy. The fact of the
matter is that while some members of the
printers' union, as Individuals, may have walked
with the paraders, not a single officer of the
union took any part In the demonstration. This
Is true also of tho sheet metal workers, painters,
carpenters, cigarmakera, upholsterers, garment
workers and a dozen other unions that were listed.
"That Hearst is loping ground among working
men Is evidenced by the cold reception hlw flying
wedge has been receiving in various parts of the
state. Our Buffalo correspondent reports that the
Hearst demonstration there made a miserably
poor showing. At one of the meetings where a
flying wedge had been heralded far and wide as
sii attraction even surpassing that of 'Buffalo
Bill' there were 127 men and boys present, and
in Nlngara County, at Niagara Falls and Lock
port, the workingmen. having learned of Hearst
duplicity toward the labor party of New lork
City, are deserting the dual candidate for Gov
ernor."
FINGEY" BACKED OUT.
Connors Failed to Make His Maiden
Effort in Brooklyn.
A few men, apparently Intoxicated, furnished
much of the scanty enthusiasm at Sheriff M. J.
Flaherty's so-called Democratic mass meeting at
Prospect Hall, Brooklyn, last' night. I: was the
first Democratic meeting of the kind held in the
borough in the present campaign, as it did not
meet under the auspices of the regular party or
ganization. Mr. Flaherty is an opponent of Sen
ator P. H. McCarren. It was also the first Demo
cratic meeting of any sort held in Brooklyn this
fall that has indorsed the state and local tickets.
Sheriff Flaherty, who presided, seemed to feel
the chill In the atmosphere. As he came down the
stage to the speakers' chair ho dropped the small
pledge hammer which he carried instead of a
gavel, and the crowd howled. He banged on the
speakers' table for quiet, and the crowd accepted
the challenge to its vocal powers. The secretary
rend a list of fifty vice-presidents of the meeting.
but Mr. Baker was the only one who honored the
meeting with his presence.
While the secretary was reading a long set of
resolutions a man asked for three cheers for Mr.
Flaherty. In company with a few others ho pro
ceeded to respond to his own request. The first
speaker. J. M. <;ri(T£Ti». folio-wed th* adoption of the
resolutions. Mr. Baker followed with an attack on
newspapers, and spent his time showing that
Hearst was using his money honestly In the cam
paign. "Finsrey" Connors, of the Democratic State
Committee, was scheduled to speak, but did not
appear.
OPPOSITION TO M'CARREN.
Brooklyn Democrats Form New Organization
— Call Senator Irregular.
At a meeting of Democrat* representing twenty
two Assembly diptrlcts. held in th© Johnston Bulld
!ntr, at Kevins and Fulton streets, Brooklyn, last
night, a new Democratic, organization was formed
which Is to be known as the Democratic Party of
Kinj?s County. Its principal platform at present is
opposition to Senator IfcCarren, who was de
nounced as Irregular. Those who nttended the
% had all jnado fights against McC'arren in
tho past and had lost. Among- tliTn were Patrick
Hayes, of the 4th District; S. J. Ulrich. of the-Gth-

wo for Hughes to fifteen for Hearst. Mr. Drake
himself is a Hughes Democrat. Among other
anti-Hearst Democrats in Corning are ex-Jus
tice George B. Bradley, of the Supreme Court:
James A. Drake and D. S. Drake, president and
vice-presideni, respectively, of the First Na
tional Bank; Oscar M. Rothfus, of the Morri3
Run Mine Company; Joseph Boyle, a coal
dealer; Police Justice George Hitchcock and
Harry Kraiger.
From all the sentiment that could be learned
to-day, Steuben County will not give much less
than a 3,000 plurality for Mr. Hughes, which the
Republicans consider their normal figures.
The Independence League is running James
M. Hurlbut, a trainman, of Hornell, for the Sen
ate against Senator Tully. He has the Demo
cratic indorsement and his friends are counting
on his popularity with labor union men to cut
down the Republican plurality, but Senator
ully was elected by a plurality of 6,000 last
time.
GREETED AT STATION' WITH SHOUTS.
When the Hughes train reached the Corning
station this afternoon there were several hun
red there to greet the candidate with a mighty
shout. Mr. Hughes was escorted to a carriage,
and the crowd formed a procession that escorted
him to the Dickinson Hotel, nearly a mile away.
It was up Bridge street, through the laboring
section of the clty, all the way. For this reason
the reception he got was particularly signifi
cant. Most of the houses had Hughes pictures In
the windows, and only now and then there was
a Hearst lithograph by way of making those of
the Republican candidate more noticeable. Along
the streets and on the stoops were throngs of
men and women, waving at and cheering the
candidate. The workmen in a number of manu
facturing establishments crowded to the win
dows to add their cheers to the welcome.
When Mr. Hughes's carriage got to the G. W.
Drake Cut Glass Works a group of fifty work
men intercepted Mr. Hughes. They cheered him.
and then he took them all by the hand, while
they told him they were unanimous in support
ing him. Then the procession proceeded, only
to be halted again a block or two further on by a
crowd of a hundred workmen from the Syming
ton Car Journal Foundry- These men, dressed
in their working clothes, with grimy faces and
hands, were so eager to greet Mr. Hughes that
he Jumped out among them and in a minute was
the centre of a throng of workmen, each one of
whom was eager to take his hand first The re
ception pleased Mr. Hughes greatly, and he
would have been glad to have stayed among
the men for half an hour, but he was expected
at the Dickinson Hotel, and was obliged to
climb back into the carriage.
A poll of tha Symington works shows 125 for
Hughes and 12 for Hearst. ~"~*
Along the route a member of the local com
mittee pointed out the store of J. Percy Carr,
one of the leading Democrats of the district,
which was plastered with Hughes pictures. As
he got near the hotel the crowd grew more
dense, and in front of the hotel the carriage had
trouble in getting through. A flying wedge had
to be formed to get Mr. Hughes into the hotel.
There in the lobby Mr. Hughes held an informal
reception and was introduced to many Demo
crats who are going to vote for him. Several
men who wore Hearst buttons replaced them
with Hughes buttons after the reception. A Re
publican observing this said: "Every time we
save a soul it makes us gladf
Mr. Hughes and Mr. Hedges were the guests
of Senator Tully at dinner, and will remain there
to-night. The others of the party were enter
tained at the Corning Club.
- WARM GREETING AT BATH.
After a night spent at the home of President
Jacob Gould Schurman, of Cornell University,
Mr. Hughes and his party started from Ithaca
for Bath this morning at 7.10 o'clock. Owing
to a wreck, which delayed the regular train to
which the special car was to have been attached
at Owego, the Lackawanna Railroad made up a
special train, which did some fast running to
Bath. It stopped at Corning: long enough to
pick up Senator W. J. Tully and other members
of the local committee of that city, including
County Judge A. W. Burrell, Postmaster Harry
H. Pratt, who Is also Editor of "The Corning
Dally Journal," and Sheriff W. O. Feenaughty.
The rim from Corning to Bath, a distance of
twenty-one miles, was made in seventeen min
utes. It was practically a holiday in Bath, and
it was said that every Interest and every store
was represented in the crowd of several hun
dred who met Mr. Hughes at the station and
walked In the procession behind his carriage to
the courthouse, half a mile away.
There were hundreds of veterans from the
Soldiers' Home at the station and In the other
assemblies that greeted Mr. Hughes. There are
2.200 old soldiers in the home, but many of them
will not be able to vote this year, owing to the
fact that Bath Is not their voting residence, and
under the new law campaign committees cannot
furnish transportation for them to go home and
vote. It was said, however, that a majority of
those veterans at the meetings can vote in Bath.
The old soldiers added a picturesque feature to
the Bath celebration. One old Negro in his
Grand Army uniform planted himself in front
of the car step when the train pulled Into th
Etation and nobody could dislodge him. There
he stayed with his eyes glued on the car door
until Mr. Hughes came out and greeted him
cordially. With two bands competing with each
other in their musical greeting, the procession
proceeded to the courthouse, where Mr. Hughe
held a reception. Among- the four hundred per
sons with whom he shook hands was the Negro
veteran again, lie had evidently prepared a
nice little speech to make to the candidate, but
it Btuck In his throat when the time came, and
ho passed on, dancing up and down with jo
until he sot out of the door.
During th« reception the stringed orchestra
from the Soldiers' Home, which played most
creditably* kept up a continuous concert.
Most of the music was sentimental, adding to
tii»< impressiveness of th« occasion. Three of
the happiest persons in the crowd were email
boys in khaki stilts and red sweaters, who
carried flags in their hands and to whom Mr.
Hughes spoke kindly.
"HEARST NOT FRIEND OF LABORERS."
"I'm a worklngman and a Democrat," said
one burly fellow dressed in a lineman's uniform,
with his tools in his belt, "but I'm for you.
Hearst is not the friend oX the laboring man."
Among those who spoke to Mr. Hughes was
Reuben R. Lyon, the ctate commltte» In an of
the Independence League in that district He
entertained Mr. Hearst and his party i n Bath
a week or so ago.
"They treated my candidate so nicely when
he was here." said Mr. Lyoa, "that I thought
it only courtesy to come out and greet Mr
Hughes."
Mr. Lyon said laughingly to the newspaper
men that he expected H»«rst would carry Bteu-

WE have got to stop advertising — at least until we can discover some new way
to do it. The trouble is by the old method we cannot keep our advertising
within gunshot of our contents. We cannot expect to sell a weekly ten hours old
with advertising ten days old. This advertisement A\as written just ten days ago.
We had to write it ten days ago in order to have it appear all over the country
this morning.
Now that you know what Ridgway's is trying to do, our only reason for further ad
vertising would be to call your attention to the special features in each number as it is
issued, but if we are obliged to write the advertisement ten days before the number which
we wish to advertise comes along, we cannot talk in our advertisements about these special
features for the sim pie reason that we ourselves do not know ten days before what the special
features are going to be.
With our mobile organization we expect \p be able to turn Ridgway's inside
out any time big developments make it necessary up to within a few hours of
going to press. Very often it will happen that the most interesting feature in
Ridgway's will be something that your local editor has dug up, something that
the rest of the country would not have reason to be as much interested in as you
are. We might ask each of our local editors to write the advertising for his
section, but they are so loaded up with things to do now we wonder when they find
time to visit their families.
It will be a pity if we have to give up a dvertising. Possibly we could figure out some
way to send the advertisements by telegraph, the same way that we edit the Weekly. That
sounds good. It's new, too. Wonder how much it would cost. We shall look into it. Heigh
ho ! How trouble heaps up for the fellow who tries to do new things.
Maybe you will remember to b\iy Ridgway's every Saturday. It is bound to
be better every week. Just compare the issue this week with our first number.
Buy Ridgway's
the sentiment that could be obtained. Steuben
County will not give much more than a 3,000
plurality for Mr. Hughes, which the Repub
licans oonHkler their normal figures.
Mr. Hughea had got through shaking hands
when a delegation of one. hundred men with a
brass band arrived from the village of Avoca.
They said that when Mr. Hearst was In Bath
the same band came up, but the delegation of
citizens consisted of seven men. The Avoca
delegation to-day was not disappointed, as Mr.
Hughes consented to greet each one pereonally.
Hammondsport also sent a delegation with a
band, but it got in on time.
After luncheon at the Nicholls House Mr.
Hughes was taken to the Little Casino, which
was Jammed with eight hundred men at 1
o'clock. Th© streeta were lined with men and
women. t The turnout astonished the managers,
because no middny meeting in Bath had ever
bern successful before. So many people could
not get Into the Casino that an overflow meet
ing of four hundred, ns many as could get into
the quaint little courtroom, was held in the
courthouse. Mr. Hughes spoke at both meet-
Ings. At the Casino he showed his sympathy
for the veterans.
"Ab I honor the flag." he said, "so I honor
those who fought In defence of the flag and
our nation's most precious treasures; tho mem
ory of thoso deeds of patriotism which those
of us who are young men und had no oppor
tunity to share in will never permit this
"That Is more than Hearst said for us," cried
a voice in the gallery.
HEARST FORGOT THE VETERANS.
It seems that the Independence League can
didate omitted to sny anything about the vet
erans In his speech, although he visited the
Home. Mr. Hushes added when the applause
had died down:
I have been ordered to the front in this cam
paign, and I have, responded to what I believe
to be a call of duty. The Union must ever be
preserved. (Applause.) It is not a call to
arms, but It is a call to think. It is a demand
upon Intelligence. It is a demand for a sober
consideration of public Questions.
Mr. Hushes also said:
Th© most pleasant work of this campaign, or
I should say the most pleasant experience of
this campaign, is meeting face to face the voters
of the communities which I visit, and nothing
that has taken place has given me more pleas
ure than the reception that was held In thd
Courthouse this morning. It is the touch of
human sympathy that makes life worth living
and a friendly grasp of the hand is the host
inspiration. 1 was particularly glad to have an
opportunity of meeting so many veterans. My
childhood was filled with stories of the courage
and fidelity of those who fought in the great.
historic, struggle to preserve the Union.
The issue in this campaign is simply whether
the good pense of the, people of this state shall
triumph. It is a shame to find an effort, au
effTt organized, an effort which some think may
be possibly conducted successfully, to make the
people of this country think that all business
life Is base, that all those who are in control of
great enterprises »ire plunderers and bandits:
that there Is no wholesomeness in American
life. I tell you, it is false.
American business is bottomed upon Integrity.
The American boy comes from the various com
munities of this state and other states, flre.l
with zeal and with ambition because of the
great opportunity he has to make the most of
himself. He learns in his s< hod and he learns*
in his home and he learns, by tho example ot
those who are before, him that In this country
Industry and Integrity and p©r severance are re
warded, and our American boys, as they grow
up to be American men. do not forget th» lessons
and the ideals of their youth.
Job Hedges made a speech that strongly ap
pealed to th* audience. Of Hearst he said:
He tells us he d.>cs not believe in political
organisations, and then lie buys one. He sa>3
he doe 3 not believe in Charles F. Murphy, and
then takes him to his heart. I've been looking:
the young man's record up. Out In California
he is opposing the labor candidate for Governor.
It's a tunny thins lie's s> snick on labor here
a;nl wants to stick the knife Into labor out
West.
After Ihe courthouse meeting Mr. Hughes vis
ited the Si. ldlers' Homo and .-hook hands with
many of the veterans there. He was escorted
to his special car by the enthusiastic populace
and four bands. Tho train started for Corning
at '2. 1" o'clock.
To-morrow Mr. Hughes will 6peak at eight
towns and cities along the line of the Erie
Railroad on his way to Olcan. He will dine
thero with Governor Higgins, and, after ad
dressing a night meeting, he and his party will
start for Dansville. where th«y will spend Sun
day. Monday night Mr. Hughes will speak at
three meetings in Rochester.

Shower as the Independence League candidate
for Congress In the 14th District. It says:
The objection to this petition Is bas»d upon an
affidavit of a handwriting expert, who expresses
tha opinion that a very large number of the sig
natures are fraudulent and simulated, and that
In point of fact they were all signed by not more
than five persons. This affidavit Is met by posi
tive affidavits on the part of the notaries publics
■who took the acknowledgments, and on the part of
other persons, tending to show that the signatures
are valid. The Board of Elections and the Special
Term have decided this question of fact In favor
of the candidate and have overruled the objections.
TTe are not disposed to reverse their order merely
upon a question of fact, leaving the parties In
terested, If they deem the objections well founded,
to invoke the aid of the criminal law.
In deciding that the multiple petitions by
which the Independence league went through
th» form of nominating- Francis B. Shober for
Congress In the 17th District are Illegal and
worthless, the Appellate Division says. In parti
A certificate of nomination for municipal officers
certainly could not l»» combined with certificates
of nomination for mfmbcrg of Congress, State Sen
ators and members of Assembly, aldermen in sev
eral districts and county officers. If they were to be
voted for at the same election. ... It Is Impos
sible to treat a certtflcate as sufficient to nominate
for one office therein named, ami to treat the at
tempt to nominate for other offices as surplusage,
because there is no test by which It can b« deter
mined for which office U can be considered a valid
certificate of nomination Our conclusion Is that
such a certificate is Invalid for any purpose.
Daniel F. Cohalan, of ths Tammany law com
mittee, who led the legal fight for the right of
Tammany candidates tr> a place under the em
blem of the scales if they had their petition In
before the regular Independence Leaguers, after
ha had read the several decisions that were
handed down by the court, said:
The decision Is surprising becausa of Its far
reaching- Influence, for It goes to the extent, ap
fiarently, of declaring that all independent nom
natfnjy certificates must fall, as a matter of fact.
wh*>n It lays down the theory, novel up to this
time, that only one candidate's name can go upon
one nominating petition.
An appeal will undoubtedly be taken to have
th<» law finally determined and settle Just what
the rights of citizens are under the pr>is?nt elec
tion law. One thing that undoubtedly will re
sult is that the Legislature will amend and eim
pllfy the law so that the Intricate and compli
cated questions that have arisen this year will
not arise in the future.
The Independence League law committee gave
out a statement last night regarding the de
cision. It reads, in part:
With regard to those cases In which It appeared
that the petitions of the candidates of tho Inde
pendence league had sufficient signatures, but por
tions of which were stolen from such petitions
after filing with the Board of Elections, the Appel
late Division decided that they could not go Into
the question as to whether the petitions were or
had been mutilated, because they could not tell what
signatures v.'ere upon the petitions originally that
had been stolen, and that the only remedy was
criminal proceedings.
The first steps have already been taken to bring
these matters to the attention of the District At
torney'and the grand Jury, and the counsel for the
Independence League have written to tho District
Attorney that they would co-opera« with him, to
the fullest extent to brine those guilty of these
crimes to justice. >
Regarding? the Judicial situation. the court de
cided that Judge Rosalsky was the nominee of
the Independence League. That the Independence
League, however, had regularly nominated only
nine justices of the Supreme Court. It was also
decided that the second petition filed with the
Board of Elections under the name Independence
League and containing the entire Democratic nom
inees as candidates, including McAvoy and Brady,
should appear on the ballot, hut under a different
name and emblem, it was also decided that the
third petition filed in behalf of Hrndv would like
wise appear unon the ballot, but under a different
name and emblem.
The Court of Appeals has adjourned until No
vember 0. but an effort Is belmr made to convene
It In special session to have an appeal from this
decision of the Appellate Division heard. ' (
The Independence League has given Instructions
to Its counsel to appeal every case— some seventy
three In number— decided adversely to it by the
Appellate Division, and it la expected that, notwith
standing the numerous difficulties in the wav of
reaching a satisfactory conclusion In due time
prior to the election the matters will nevertheless
be heard by the Court of Appeaals.
Charles F. Murphy, with Senator Grady be
aide him. at Tammany Hall last night, ex
pressed the opinion that the decision of the Ap
pellate Division would have" no effect upon the
