platform Collapses at Troy, But
None Badly Hurt.
Albany. Oct. 26 -William R. Hearst. Democrats
and Independence League candidate for Governor,
bad an enthusiastic welcome here to-night. His
evening began with an old-fashioned torchlight
parade, with red fire and bombs. Through crowded
gtreets the line led to Harmanus Bleeker Hall,
which was filled, with an overflow outside.
From here Mr. Hearst and his party were taken
in a epeclai trolley car to Troy, where another
Urge gathering awaited them In the Lyceum The
What might have been a tragedy occurred Just
is Mr. Hearst arrived In front of the theatre at
Troy. Ke came from the car line in an automobile,
*rblch with difficulty cleared a way through the
crowd. A temporary platform had been erected
In front of the theatre, from which it was In
tended that Mr. Hearst «hould address the people
unable to ret into the building. As his automobile
approached the crowd on the platform, consist
ing mostly of boys, surged to one Bide of the
structure to see him. and the whole end of the
platform collapsed. There were many people under
the platform, but so far as is known none were
j«rious!y hurt.
After the Troy meeting the special car took Mr.
Hearst and his party to Cohoes, where he received
ft •jiana welcome. One of the most effective things
gild by Mr. Hearst, which aroused all of the audi
ences to enthusiasm, was this:
Hi Hughes asks If Lincoln were here, would he
be for Heam7 and I say to Mr. Hughes, that is
not the Question. If Lincoln were here, whether
or not Lincoln waa for Hearst, Hearst would bo
lor Lincoln."
Mr. Hearst returned after the Cohoes meeting
to Altary and started late In the night for New
Mr. Hearst's speeches at Albany, Troy and Coht-ci
tcwustt were substantially alike and for the most
p«.-: sew. Speaking first of the meetings ho had
addressed .-ring the last four days in New York
City and of the demonstrations at these meetings,
ie declared there had never been any like them,
la New York, adding:
I feel Octant that two-thirds of the people of
giet,'jcr New lurk are la favor of this movement
to wrest ute coatrcl of government from the trusts
ai.d the great public service corporations which
sow control it in tiieir own interest*, and restore
it u> tho hasiis of the people) to be conducted for
lie greatest good of the gietitest number.

tie people of New i ova will i>t> atiie to accomplish
sj. .•:—:.*, agninart the great aggregations of capital
■*„. control, not oruy the luacrunery of parties,
bat the nxa.ciiin<sry ol toverainent i:. nearly every
cepartnieiit. The men who have been put Into of
£c« ud who hold the power of omce were put
there by the trusts), and ttar.d ready to serve the
true'-s to the last desperate extremity.
Wt3 cv not know what parucuiar outrage, what
tr.ui t'.ow to popular lnnututiuus. to American
refits and libTUce, may be tieait at this election,
but we do knew that every trust owned officer in
every branch of government will do his best to
defeat the will of the people, and to continue the
trusts that suckle him in cower.
It ia confidence in such crimes, belief In such be
trayal of the peopie by such officials, that allows
T. nil Street to scorn these demonstrations of popu
lar fee^as, and to laughingly bet 3 to 1 that the
lmnser.se majority of the people of New York will
not be able to prevail against the power of cor
rupt wealth.
I think the election In New York City last year was
won by not less than thirty thousand. I think the
election in greater New York this year will be won
by from one hundred and fifty thousand to two
hundred and fifty thousand if the people are not
by some treachery deprived of their rights as citi
zens I believe that the majority will be somewhere
about the majority in the whole state, as I do not
thiik the Republican party will be able to bear
its load of popular condemnation and stagger to
the Harlem with any majority at all.
I warned the people last year that immense sums
woild be used to defeat them, fhat the great trusts
and corporations would go to any length to defeat
them. The people listened, but doubtless hardly
believed that 60 serious a situation menaced them;
vet th» result established the truth of every warn
?-e I r.ad given them. To-night I solemnly warn
the Fople of this state that even more desperate
measures will be taken by the corrupt corporations
at this election.

will be lost if a Governor and Legislature are
elected who will Bee to it that the votes that we
rave fought to preserve are honestly counted as
cart. Then the bought and branded cattle of the
trusts would be driven out of office or removed for
cri'ninsJ complicity, and all the greedy hopes of
gain of these financial outlaws would be destroyed.
The Elections Board in New York City is com
posed of the earns ro«"r. who last year obstructed
cur fi!Torts to get a fair count. One member of
this Elections Board, Dady. has been Indicted sev
enteen separate times, end consequently has a di
p:n:r.& of f.*r.ess to serve these corrupt corpora
tions. Another is a creature of McClellan who
feet v*ar helped bis master to steal the office he
sow holds, and now Is protected by his master for
further knavery. Another la the creature of Mc-
Carren, known everywhere as briber for the fitand
trd Oil and Lighting Trust and Brooklyn Rapid
Transit. Like master, like man.
V.'hen the Independence League petitions were
before this Election Board they were allowed to bo
mutilated and altered and partly destroyed, and an.
attempt was made to throw nut the Independence
l>!ar_e petitions and Indorsements completely. I
ea a*tour.ded to learn that this attempt was con
firmed ?h!s aftemocn by a decision from the Ap
pellate Division of the - - •me Court.

Court of Appeals Sends It Back to Appellate
Division for Determination on Merits.
Albar.y. Oct. 26.— The Court of Appeals to-day
handed down a decision reversing without costs
the order of the Appellate Division of the Su
preme Court in the case of the People ex rel.
Thor.i£B C. Quinn, relator-rea ident, against the
Board of Elections of the City of New York, and

tsKciitl election printing as advocating th« prln

tne fact that they are oppoam* to the election of
TViliiam Randolph Hearst, the candidate of thai
party for Go*, ernor. Tho court does not pass
op the meritß of the question, but only decides
that "it was error to dismiss the appeal from the
final order granting a writ of peremptory man

writ in part by performing some of the acts which
they were commanded to perform."
The case was argued in the court yeeterday.

Democrats Ready to Bury Hearst in
Political Grave.
Many persons have responded to the call of the
Independent Democratic League to unite in bury
ing William Randolph Hearst on Election Day. A
great many men are unable to take an active part
in the burial, but have Informed the league that
trey are going to throw at least a shovelful of dirt
into Hearst's political grave, Among these persons
is Walter L. MoCorkie, member of the bar and of
the Southern Society. In a letter to the league he

George H. Bruce, a lawyer, of No. 220 Broadway,
who last year was chairman of the speakers com
mittee of the Hearst campaign in Kings County,
and himself made sixty-eight speeches, in a letter
dated October 2C states, with reference to his ser
vices for Hearst:
I had no other Interest in the matter than to do
L imalli mall Part in bringing about a regeneration,
which was promised by Mr. Hearst, who posed as
the eavlor of the people. Mv Interest In the move
ment continued until my close association with the
£'. ar e8 connected with the Oilsey House committee
disillusionized me and gave me a real Insight into the
character and purposes of Mr. Hearst. It is in
comprehensible to me how anybody can longer be
oecelved or can Imagine that he is sincere or that
n« has any other purpose than the advancement of
his own personal Interest and. as far as possible,
placing himself In line as the Democratic candidate
for President two years hence.
The following is a copy of a letter received from
a farmer ud the state:
I am a farmer, living in Mohawk Valley, an old
line Democrat. I cannot go Hearst and Hearst is
sues, i think there are thousands of honest, decent
Democrats among the farmers of this state who
will repudiate the doings of the Buffalo convention.
Please send me literature to place in the hands of
my Democratic neighbors and friends, also some of
those cockroach and croton bug cards. I want to
do my share to help defeat that scamp Hearst.
Hearsfs Majority Takes Daily
Jump — Now 800,000.
William J. Conners, Democratic Btate chairman,
says that Hearst will win by 300.000. On Wednes
day It was 160,000. and on Thursday Mr. Con
ners felt co fine that he raised it to 250,000. See-
Ing his name in print so elated the state chair
man that he raised it another notch yesterday,
making: it a round 800,000.
Mr. Conners heard yesterday that Thomas M.
Osbome, who successfully raided and captured
the Democratic State Committee headquarters in
Albany, was going to Bend out a militant blaet
against Mr. Hearst. In order to soften the blow
as much as practicable, Mr. Conners yesterday
Issued a statement which was In part as follows:
The Democratic State Committee had no head
quarters In Albany to aeize. In tne spring of
I»U2 a house was laased In Albany and maintained
for a time aa a political headquarters by tl.e per
sonal contributions at prominent Democrats. The
etate committee had nothing to do with the lease
and had r.o official connection with the head
quarters. These headquarters, such as they were,
were abandoned many months ago.
Mr. Osbome has a perfect right to lease any
premises in Albany or elsewhere for which he is
yriUng to pay the rent. Mr. Osborne is not a
Democrat. For one who claims to be the keeper
and custodian of the Democratic faith, he has a
unique political record. In twelve years he haa
bolted five state and national tickets, besides beliis
once a candidate lor JL.leuter.ant Governor on a
boiters' ticket, when he polled something like two
thousand five hundred votea In the state. When
asked to oontrlbute to the Bryan campaign fund
of 1800, Mr. Osbor&e sent a reply by letter over
hla own signature, which I have «e«n, saying he
could not contribute la any way to tha success of
the Democratic party, because he had parted from
One of the principal speakers at the ratification
meeting, under the auspices of the Independence
League In the 27th Assembly District, last night
was William F. Clark, who represents the Murpr.y,
or regular, faction of Tammany Hall in that dis
trict. Mr. Clark, who came to the meeting with
''Jack" Ftoliansbee, treasurer of the Independence
League and its leader in the 27th District, told his
hearers that his presence at the meeting was due
to the fact that he wished to emphasise as strongly
as possible the loyalty on the part of the adherents
of Mr. Murphy to the entire Democratic ticket.
PnJUxer Says He Was Nominated
on Multiple Petition.
Melvtn G. F&lliser. of the Independence League's
law committee, said last night at the Gilsey House
that If the Appellate Division decision ruling out
the league's petitions was sustained by the Court
of Appeals, there was a strong probability that
Borough President Co>r of Brooklyn would be un
"Mr. Coler was put in nomination In Brooklyn
a year ago on. a so-called multiple petition." said
Mr. Palliaer. "Hla nomination was regarded as
regular, and no one ever questioned his election.
We followed the practice in two or three preced
ing campaigns in getting up the petitions. It
striken ri.e that if the Court of Appeals sostains
the App*>ilate DJvtelnn's decision of to-day, an
action could be. brought that would result in de
claring that Mr. Coicr never had been legally
nornir.ated for his office, and that therefore he had
no rl?ht to continue as President of the Borough
of Brooklyn."
Says Murphy-Hearst Deal Xominees
Are All Good.
About 2, T00 persons assembled last night in Mur
ray Hill Lyceum to hear Tammany fire broadsides
against the Judiciary Nominators" ticket. The
principal speakers at the meeting were. W. B^urke
Cockran and Thomas F. Grady.
William Hepburn Russell opened the exercises
by expressing pleasure because the Independence
league h.ir] started an uprising among the Demo
cratic masses. He said the Issue this year was
not whether Mr. Hearst ran a good newspaper or
not, but it was a question of trust Influences.
When Mr. Cockran came he was cheered. He
said, in part:
This has been a remarkable campaign. It has
been without precedent. It has no issue. It is
a case of one party taking the platform of the
other I have seen many campaigns, but this is
the first where a candidate has remained through
out II In a state of verbal eruption without saying
one thing that any one could comprehend. No
attempt has i>"*n made to deny one thing that lir.
Hearst has said. Epithets have been hurled at
him, but no arguments have been made in an
pwer to those be ha? advanced.
Mr. Hughes has visited thirty counties, but whe"n
lie returned his campaign managers found he had
eaid no sensible, comprehensible tiling en the whole
trip, so they made a platform from his speeches
about as long as his trip. His statements I will
not try to read to you, for they are most platitu'd
inous — to the point of nonsense.
Mr. Cockran then read the first plank of the Re
publican platform, and he declared that th« entire
platform was bo well behaved that Mr. Hughes
would only be fitted for the "lunatic asylum or
penitentiary If he carried out the nonsensical
nom-nlties, and the lunatic asylum If be believed
The speaker Bald the only planks that had any
sense were taken from the Democrats. He then
Mr. Cockran dilated on the alleged "rottenness"
of the Stetl Tru3t for raising price*, on the alleged
action of the New York Central for rebating and
on the killing of competition by the Standard Oil
« 'oinpuny.
"iii»: Democratic party," tsald he, "is against all
rottenness, and Mr. Hearst embodies the spirit of
that revolt."
Mr. Cockran then took up the Judiciary ticket.
He said that eight years ago he- was against the
renomlnatlon of a certain Judge, but that was be
fore the days of trusts and the political conditions
that exist to-day. He said that the Judiciary ticket
was on a par with the Independent candidacy of
District torn* Jerome. l^i.st ear the trusts, he
eaid, had named their owu agents to sit In the
courts of law.
A lew men." said Mr. Cockran, ••have picked out
a few office boys and told us that they could nick
out better men than we could. We pick out law
yers Last year the same men and papers picked
out and elected a District Attorney. They are now
so proud of him that they will not allow him on
the platform to talk for them."
Mr ■ r. -jn then tooK up the Individual actions
of *'Jme of the nominees on th>- ticket, and paid a
high tribute to Peter A; Hendrlrk. Judge Seabury,
„.iiJ, wy the Ju'lg»- who l.hd opposed Jeroma

inals " and he said that all of the nominees wei«

Charles L* Guy. a candidate for the Supreme
Bench, made a short speech.
Mao: Ihmsen Says He Scents Fraud
in Election.
State Chairman Ihmsen of the Independence
League yesterday gave utterance to the cus
tomary cry of distress that comes from the fel
low that Is sure to be beaten. He said that
Hearst would surely win If the Republicans
could be kept from stealing the election.
David B. Hill regularly for ten years the week
before election said something similar. When
ever he said It the Republican managers in
variably took it as a good sign, and followed up
their advantage by increasing the majority
against the Democratic ticket-
Mr. Ihmsen was the man who put through the
deal with Murphy at Buffalo resulting In throw
ing out honestly elected delegates opposed to
Hearst and seating those friendly to Hearst. He
and Charles P. Bacon and the Buffalo Independ
ence League leaders saw the "goods" delivered.
With the exposure of that deal and with tha
exposure of other deals between the Hearst lead
ers and the leader of Tammany Hall things have
been going wrong for the last week at the Gilsey
House, and Mr. Ihm3en is preparing his lieuten
ants for the Republican landslide on the night of
November 6. His shout about Republican cor
ruption Is regarded, even in Tammany Hall, as
a sign of distress. Mr. Ihmsen said:
I believe that the election is won to-day, and
that the victory can only be taken from Mr.
Hearst by the Republicans stealing it.
We are reliably informed that George B. Cor
telyou. Postmaster General of the United States,
has been here to show Mr. Woodruff how to
raise an enormous campaign fund from the
corporations. They cannot this year appeal
directly to the trusts, so they will seek aid
from the Individual officers of those corpora
tions, but the people are so thoroughly aroused
this year that the election cannot be bought.
Our organization and the voters up the state
will see to it this year that the tombstones don't
vote. I am satisfied that we shall carry Kings
County, notwithstanding the opposition of Pat
rick Henry McCarren, which we consider a gilt
edged apset.
Mr. Murphy at headquarters was told of the
statement. He would make no comment on
It and seemed only mildly surprised and inter
"Is that so?" he commented with a smile.
Norman E. Mack, Democratic state commlt
leeman from Erie County, in company with
Alderman J. J. Kennedy, of Buffalo, also a
Democratic state committeeman from Erie
County, visited Democratic state headquarters
at the Hotel Victoria yesterday to call upon
Chairman W. J. Conners. Afterward Mr. Mack
Conditions are improving for Mr. Hearst
dally and the outlook for his election Is much
brighter than It was two weeks ago.
He -was asked about the outlook in Erie
County. "I am Inclined to believe that it will
go for Hearst," he said.
Hearst Compelled to Compromise
-Lt-itk Democrats— Many for Hughes.
Oswego, N. t.. Oct. 28 (Special).— William R.
Hearst has had to compromise with Democrats In
Oswego. Charles N. Bulger, long the head of the
Democratic machine, caused the dissolution of the
Independence League, and the old line Democrats
not Hearst, now control the county organization!
Mr. Bulger's elevation to the chairmanship of the
executive committee of the Democratic State Com
mittee is regarded as a concession to the David B.
Hill element, which had not been conspicuously
serviceable up to that time.
Mr. Bulger was opposed to Hearst, but on the
train to the Buffalo convention he declared that
he thought it sagacious not to resist too far
the tendency toward Hearst. Now that Mr. Bulger
has been made state executive chairman. In prac
tical control of funds, conditions have so settled
that the county Is by persons of opposite parties
expected to go about 3,000 or S.STK) for Mr. Hughes—
scarcely lowering the normal Republican majority—
and that Oswego City will go Democratic by 800,
which Is 900 less than Coler got, yet 494 more than
Parker got.
Nevertheless, the Hearst candidacy la looked on
by the organization, and particularly among the
Gold Democrats, with a frigid and detached spirit
Registration has been light. Nothing has been
done except on a telegram from Conners announc
ing that Hearst was coming, to hire the Opera
House for him at an expense of 1250, and to en
gage a room for headquarters and hang out a
banner. Borne Republican labor union men have
declared for Hearst, but these well known Demo
crats on the other hand have declared against him:
John A. Barry. United States ganger; John H.
McCullon. retired; Dr. I. B. Peuchex, principal of
the Normal College; Professor W. G. Rappelye, of
the Normal College, formerly Instructor In Cornell,
and John H. Mackin. There are, of course, others,
but they believe they can do more privately to
Injure Hearst than publicly.
Said John A. Barry: "The nomination of Hearst
at Buffalo was a disgrace to the party, and his
election would be a public calamity. Among local
Democrats there is a feeling of dissatisfaction, and
I think fully one-third of them will refuse to In
dorse Hearst at the. polls." Mr. Barry was for
twenty-five years editor of "The Oswego Palla
dium" and was twice appointed postmaster of
Oswego by President Cleveland.
John H. MeCuliom. a well known Oswegan, re
tired, who, as he says, was born a Democrat and
expected to die one. Is indignant at the "cowardly
surrender to the arch enemy oT true Democracy"
at the Buffalo convention. "I object to Hearst for
the way in which he got his nomination from the
Democrats. He has pretended to be opposed to
bribery; he has shown that ha will use bribery.
Moreover, I do not regard him as a Democrat. He
Is more nearly a socialist. As a Democrat, I don't
want to vote the Republican ticket, but I am com
pelled to do so. Unless the party changes I shall
become a Republican."
Dr. I. B. Poucher, formerly Collector of Customs,
repudiated Hearst as a matter of principle. "Under
the circumstances, the best way to 'scotch the
snake' is to vote the whole Republican ticket, and
I shall do so." said Dr. Poucher.
Another Democratic member of the faculty of
the Normal School, Professor Rappelye, declares
he 13 opposed to Hearst "from the top of his head
to th* soles of his feet "
P. W. Culllnan, ex-State Excise Commissioner,
expects that the farmers In the county, because of
pood crops and good prices, "will line up for Mr.
Hughes. The few desertions from among men
through sympathy with HearstlEm will be more
than offset by th* vote of the old line Democrats,
who say there Is no longer a Democratic party.
It will be a repetition of 1896."
Professor Phelps declined to preside at the
Hearst rally, but Is going to vote for him. Dr. J.
E. ManFfield, ex-Mayor, who formed from his fol
lowers the Independence League and became a
member of the league's state committee will re
main inactive because Hearst recognized Charles
N. Bulger, his factional opponent in Democratic
local politics, instead of himself. Ex-Mayor Mans
field, running last year on the independent ticket,
pot 850 votes, and was Instrumental In retiring Bulger
from his City Recordershlp, which Bulger had held
for twenty years or so. This year, since the dts
bandment of his league, one-half perhaps of Mans
fl» Id's followers will vote directly in opposition to
'"'ontrary as it is to the usual situation a rainy
Election Day this year will help Hufhea and In
lure Hearst. It is becai of "bumper crops"
This Is an apple growing country. Trees are
heavily laden— much of the fruit going to waste
on th« ground. Help enough to harvest the crop
is not to be hud. Ordinary Italian labor has to be
paid ■": 75 a day on fnrin*. and there is too little
of It. The rons=»Hiu«Mice Is that this your a farmer
will tint fe^l he can afford to take a day off to
vote if It in a fair day in which he may j* o on
gathering his crops. This also is th« situation In
the grape growing counties, where the fruit hants
spoiling for lack of pickers. ~ •"
Finally, th* division of the Republicans between
the Senatornhlp candidacies is likely to make som«
votes for the Democratlo ticket. Senator Gates

League Machine Drops Hearst
Fight — Leaders for Hughes.
Nyack. N. V.. Oct. 25 (Special).— The Hearst
campaign in Rockland County has practically col
lapsed and from almost every town in the county
a stampede from the head of the state ticket is
reported. The, county organization of the Inde
pendence League has given up the fight and gone
out of business altogether, while Its officers have
come out for Hughes. The Democratic machine\
which is still for Hearst, has practically quit work-
Ing for the state ticket, and the leaders, discour
aged by dally desertions from the ranks, are
scrambling to save their local tickets In the differ
ent sections and part of the county ticket. Old
time Democratic workers who are inactive this year
are predicting that this banner Democratic county
will go for Hughes by a plurality of from seven
hundred up. The Hearst workers In many towns
concede the county to the Republican state ticket.
Hearst began laying plans to capture the county
last May. when some labor agitators were sent
here. All their effcrts could not get the county
delegation instructed for Hearst. The Rockland
delegates went to Buffalo to vote for Suizer, and
as a consequence the Hearet-Murphy crowd tried
to have the delegation thrown out.
Hot shot was immediately fired Into the Hearst
forces by Dr. G. A. Leitner. of Piermont. Dr.
Leitner and several other leaders who had be^n
the backbone of the county organization, absolutely
refused to have anything to do with a Hearst cam
Meanwhile the old line Democrats all over the
county were quietly deserting the Hearst stand
ard. These men represented In largre measure the
voting strength of the party. Among those In
Nyack who will vote for Hughes are John D.
Blauvelt, druggist, former postmaster, recently a
candidate for Congress, who has voted the Demo
cratic ticket for forty-five years; A. M. Voorhls, an
old time regular; Frederick Perry, formerly presi
dent of the Xoung Men's Democratic Club, and
J. W. Dalley, a drygoods man.
At Haverstraw the sentiments of many of the
Democratic business men. they say, are voiced by
Robert A. Wldenxnann. who says In regard to tho
Hearst Issue:
The better element say that when the party is
In such a condition that It Is ruled by the "Fln
geys," the "Mlckeys" and the Murphys, and when
the party by these people Is sold out to socialism,
populism and Incipient anarchy, then it is time to
fet out and smash it. I am emphatically for
Many old line Democrats were found in Haver
straw who felt the Hearst disgrace so strongly that
they declare they will vote the straight Re
publican ticket, bitter as this action 1? to them.
In other parts of the county one hears the same
story. The Republican leaders who have been
taking a careful canvass of the county have been
astonished at the result. In one small poll they
found twenty Democrats who would vote for
Hughes, and In another twenty-eight. The 3d Dis
trict, at Stony Point, is said to be the stralghtest
Democratla district In the state. It normally gives
22 Republican and 140 Democratla votes, and It Is
the preud boast of the district that the Republi
cans have never been able to strengthen their
position there by the use of money. This year
Democrats who know the district declare that It
will give fifty votes for Hughes. This will be a
Republican record.
The Democratic county chairman is James Boyd.
of Sparkhlll. He has been unable to stem th»
anti-Hearst tide. Of late he got a position in
New York City. He leaves Sparkhlll every morn-
Ing on an early train, and does not return until 9
o'clock at night. Bo he is not worrying the Re
publicans with his activity.
More significant Is the abandonment of the
campaign by the Independence League. The
League was organized In the county by George
Toradasch, of Spring Valley. He has quit and
resigned. Philip Doerach. of Nyack. county chair
man, and Patrtck Burns, of Haverstraw, county
treasurer, have also quit and are out for Hughes
Mr. Doersch waß postmaster of Nyack under
Cleveland. He says:
At the start the organizers of the League came
to me and wanted me to head the county or
ganization. I w&b enthusiastic because I was an
Independent Democrat and believed in Hearst.
But his various deals with Tammany and the
way in which Hughaa has been showing him up
have disgusted us all. The enthusiasm among the
working men has dropped, off. The people don't
believe in him any more. He calls his platform
Americanism, but I think it is fakiam.
The brlokyard3 at Haverstraw turn out from
600.000,000 to 900.000,000 bricks a year and employ
about three thousand five hundred men. Patrick
Burns, an assistant foreman, is the big labor
leader there, and lf you ask one of the union work
men who the solon of the yard is, he will say
Paddy Burns. The bosses also have a good word
to say for Burns. So it was rather a clever move
for tne Hearst men to make Burns the county
treasurer of the league. Burns was found In the
yard? propping up a brick kiln. He s.ud:
Tl c Independence L«ague here is out of business.
I have not been able to llnd nnv continued senti
ment for Hearst among the laboring men here,
at d I couldn't get up any enthusiasm for him. I
I'; d that the laboring men are beginning to think
he is it lake and tiiat they have been footed by
him At New City and at Haverstraw- *« tried
to hold meetings, but couldn't get enough of a
crowd together. So 1 have simply tfivon up.
It Is a significant fact that the Democratic Coun
ty Convention did not indorse the ctat« tl. ket this
year This is the first time in the memory of the
oldt-st Rockland politician that the ticket did
not receive the county indorsement. Hearst's name
wa? not even mentioned at the convention. It is
said that there Is to-day only a single Hearst
lithograph displayed in Rockland County. This

Agnew Says He Refused to Help in
(was Investigation.
Asaemblyman George B, Agnew. who w»s a mem
ber of the legislative gas investigating committee
and wb i Introduced the bill providing for 80-cent
gap. spoke last night at a meeting of the 17th
Senate District, at No. 322 West t&th atreet. H«
devoted almost his entire speech In reply to staio
mentn of Hearst regarding the latter's action in
fighting for W-cent gas. Mr. Agnew denied that
Hearst deserved any credit for forcing the cheaper
gas, and said:
"Hearst la claiming all the credit for 8»-cent gas.
Just as he is claiming credit for many other things
which have happened recently. He Is no more en
titled to the credit for 80-cent qua than he Is to
th« credit for the rate bill In Congress or the set
tlement of the coal strike."
Mr. Agnow said that at the beginning of the In
vestigation Hearst was asked by Mr. Hughes to
have his counsel, Mr. Bhearn, furnish all Informa
tion he could to aid the investigation, but. Mr.
Agnew said. Hearst and his counsel Ignored the
request and did nothing to help.
"It became evident," Mr. Agn«w continued, "that

Mr. Crum packer Says President Is
Labor's Best Friend.
TBy T«le«Tar>h to The Tribune. 1
Indianapolis. Oct. 26.— Replying to a speech of
Samuel Gompers. Congressman Crumpacker said
to-day that it was not tru« that the law respect-
Ing Chinese Immigration was in any way affected
by exempting labor on the Isthmian canal from
the operation of the eight hour law.
"There are about thirteen thousand men en
gaged, in the work at this time," said the Congress
man, "all of whom are tropical aliens and most
of whom are Jamaica Negroes. They do not work
on an average of tour days a week. They da not
average six nourts a day. There can be no com
pulsory labor on the canal.
"All work on the canal must be done under the
authority of President Roosevelt, and no one be-
Uevea he will permit any hardship to be lmpoied
on the laborers. He U an ardent supporter of the
eight hour law in this country, but conditions are
so different m the tiopics that he doea not believe
Amt-rk-an standards of living and labor can be
made applicable there. In my opinion, he is the
t.cst friend latior has had In the Presidency since
:.::i tin. He haa done more to obtain for labor its
rights and advance its interests than any of his

meeting of the Tammany executive committee. He
Tne morning yagers have Quoted me aa having
made a visit to Mr. Hearst at his home. That la
entirely correct. But the assertion that Mr. Hearwt
asked me lf Tammany and Mr. Murphy would sup
port him, and that I replied that they surely would,
is not true, and I utter an abaolute denial that I
aald any such thing.
Charles F. Murphy said that he was present at
the executive oommtttee meeting yesterday, but
while he heard Coroner Harb-urger apeak, he did
not hear him say that Mr. Murphy and Mr. Haarat
were really working In combination.
