RIOT UNDER RIVER BED. POLK /: /V TUNXEL FIGHT. Desperate Battle with Forty Work men in Stifling Atmosphere. Far under the bottom of the East River the police fought ■ desperate battle with rioters last night in the dense air of th« Belmont tunnel. The police, unaccustomed to the deadly pressure, for a time fought a losing battle, but at last redjuced the twoscore of frenzied laborers to fubmission. The result was a dozen badly wounded men. . It was a scene that would have delighted a Dante; soil grimed men reeling and stumbling et one another in the subterranean electric rlare, every sound intensified manyfoid by the heavy air. the multiplied roar of the patrolmen's revolvers adding to the fiendishness of the tumult. Rocks flew In every direction. The police of the Bast Blsi street station, railed to suppress the riot, found in Lock 3 of the Belmont tunnel more than forty work mm. mostly foreigners. In battle. After peace was restored Santo Mnzzelio. of No. 403 East ;Sth "X. was taken to Bellevue Hospital suf fering from a fracture of the skull, five broken ribs, internal Injuries and severe contusions of the body.

The •' real had the desired effect, and the forty m»n gathered into a group at the furthest end of the lock. The patrolmen, not used to '.lie high pressure, ffclt their senses reel The workmen realized tho situation and started to close In again on the officers. •We'll kill you: We'll kill you!

Just as they were being pulled apart Schulsky picked up a heavy wrench and hit Mazzelio over the head with it causing, the police say, a fractuce of the skull. The patrolmen had great difficulty in getting the wounde-d man and Bchulsky out of the lock. When Beholsfcy was placed under arrest a growl went up from the group of workmen huddled in the corner. They started to advance again, but up;' intimidated by the revolvers in the offi cer?' hands. The police will try to arrest some of the other men. TIIIKTY-OXi: LOST AT SEA.

Among other things the police quote Edelson as saying: "No matter how much cz.olgosz has been damned for his good work, we know that he was a great man. He was a true hero. American laws arc all made for bluffing. The people of America are worse Muffed than the people of Russia."

Oct. 80. — Revolt against Hearst among Democrats took shape to-day, when a paper sigi.< d by twenty-live of the leading and most Influential oldtime Democrats In the city iraa printed In "The Coming Journal." The statement follows: We. the Democrats of the city of Corning, bold that the action of the so-called Democratic con vention at Buffalo was a betrayal of tin- party, binding upon no one, and we urge all Democrats, for th«: honor at the state and In order that the punishment of those who betrayed the party may l>* as effective as possible, to vote for Charles E. Hughes, the Republican nominee for Governor. The list of signers is headed by George B. Bradley, a Democrat of sixty years 1 standing, twice State Senator and twice elected justice of the Supreme Court, serving in Appellate Divis ion of Brooklyn, Other signers are: General Austin Lathrop, for ten years Superintendent of State Prisons under Governors Hill and Flower; Frank D. Kingsbury, twice president of the New York State League of Building: and Loan Asso ciations and last year president of the National League. Two signers. Joseph Boyle and Will iam M.

PRESIDENT TRIMS HEARST NOT WORTH REPLY HIS EARNEST SUPPORT OF MR. HUGHES WILL BE EXPRESSED BY SECRETARY ROOT. [From The Tribune Bureau.] Washington, Oct. 30. — The President does not believe that the voters of New York State have any doubts about his position and does not see why he should further define his attitude tow ard the Republican candidate for Governor or the platform on which he stands. To the efforts of Mr. Hearst's managers to prove by placard and parallel columns that the speeches cf the President ar.d the Demo cratic candidate are similar in sentiment no at tention whatever can be given. The mere ex pression of lofty sentiments by Mr. Hearst no more proves him worthy of the Governorship than they would of the Presidency, and the coupling cf certain sentences he has uttered with those spoken by the President when taken out of the context of spsechss in which they were contained will rot convince any right thinking person that there is anything whatever in common between the two men. It is pointed out that the worst of men as well as the most debasing of newspapers may at times voice the noblest sentiments. The mers prating of virtue does not prevent them from being a power for evil. The President does not believe that this campaign thunder is of suffi cient consequence to be dignified by his notice. This statement may be accepted as giving President Roosevelt's final decision on the ap peals to him to sneak in the New York cam paign, and as he will leave here to-morrow for Virginia, where he will hear no sounds from the political hattUflt 11 * 1 for- at least- five days., any Idea of his personal participation in the struggle may be put aside. Those who have hoped that the President would "take a hand" in the fight may derive some comfort, however, from the fact that Secretary Root will speak at Utica on Thursday as the representative of the President The Secretary has conferred with the President a number of times in the last few days, and has read to him nearly, if not quite, all the speech he is to deliver at Utica.

President approves every word of it, and if the New York Republicans would know just where the President stands— and who among them does not know?— all they need do to ascertain his sentiments is to lls'en to his Secretary of State when he makes his earnest appeal for Hughes and against Hearst. The Hearst publicity bureau has sent broad cast throughout the state hundreds of thousands of pamphlets showing in parallel columns the views of President Roosevelt and Hearst on questions affecting the public at large. The un derlying motive is to make the masses believe that Hearst's views and the President's are similar. Ignorant persons might construe this pamphlet as meaning thai Hearst was indorsed by ihe I "resident. The pamphlet cites parts of the President's speech at the 200 th anniversary celebration of Christ's Episcopal Church at Oyster Bay on Sep tember N i.ist. iii which hr said that the multi millionaire was a good to a community if he appreciated the fact that he was only a trustee of the vast sums In his possession. Hearst is then quoted* as saying that he was not opposed to the legitimate accumulation of wealth. Again, the President's "muck rake" speech is cited, and opposite ii a paragraph from Hearsfs letter of acceptance to the Independence League. Pictures of the President and Hearst appear at the head of each column. Chairman Woodruff of the Republican State Committee yesterday looked through one of these Hearst circulars and said he considered it a cheap attempt !o switch some of the Presi dent's acknowledged popularity and influence lo the Hearst side i;i this canipaign. "This is a cheap trick."' declared Mr. Wood ruff, "but at the fame tinn it is serious as showing just how far those people will go in their efforts to elect Hearst. I have looked over all this circular. I lon't know what the Presi dent will think about it when he sees it. I know that he has maintained all along a policy of not interfering in state politics, and has taken no part in the Hughes campaign save his telegram to Mr. Hughes on the day of the con vention and his declaration to Marcus Braun tha the was not for Hearst by any means."

Stops Train a Fete Feet from Trolley Car. A big trolley car. crowded almost to Its limit, became disabled last night as it was crossing the tracks of the Long Branch division of the Cen tral Railroad of New Jersey, near Elizabeth.

An express bound for Lakewood had passed the EUzabethport station and was fast Betting up speed. The passengers in the trolley oar saw the oncoming headlights and there was a panic. Several women fainted, men and women rushed for the doors and some tried to crawl through the windows. Vincent Morelli, the flagman at the crossing, picked up ■ red lantern and ran down the track toward the oncoming 'rain, waving the lantern.

Big Croxcd Greets Candidate in Oszccgo — A sser ts In depc ndencc. fßy Teleeraph to Th<» Trlb'.:r.e 1 Oswogo. N. V., Oct. 30.— Here, on the shore of Lake Ontario, in Oswego County. Charles E. Hughes received a right royal welcome to night. Speaking to nearly two thousand persons in the Richardson Theatre, the Republican candidate for Governor broke his campaign rec ord to dat«, having addressed between eight thousand and nine thousand persons to-day. This morning Mr. Hughes made speeches to a total of 6,500 persons at nine different places on the loop, running to Niagara Kails over the main line of the New York Central and back tc Rochester ov.-r the branch. Five counties were covered on this loop. Including Genesce, Erie, Niagara, Orleans and Monroe. While Mr. Bughes's private car was travelling east from Rochester, which he left at 5:30 Veloek to-night, on his way to i iswego, by way if Syracuse, it passed the special car which car ried William Randolph Hearst west to Rochester, where he was to speak at four meetings. Owing to various delays It was S:4f> o'clock to night before the Hughes special arrived here. The meeting had been called for 9 o'clock, and the auditorium was crowded. Several hundred persons sacrificed their chances to get into th* theatfv and welcomed Mr. Hughes with cheers at the Midland station of the Ontario & West ern Railroad. The cheers wen augmented by a band which headed the procession to the theatre. It was a hard proposition to get the candi date through the crowd and onto the stag*, as the fact that he was on his way quickly spread around the audience, which was on edge and ready to burst forth with a loud welcome when Mr. Hughes appeared. After the cheering had died dmvn, ■ local glee- etata sang ■ song, the refrain of whirh went : "Willie" won't be in it for a single bttfed mlnut*. When the boys begin to vote In November. It was an impressive gathering, crowding every inch of space to the topmost gallery and occupying the staircase. There was a larger proportion of women than in the average cam paign audience to which Mr. Hughes has spoken. "NEW YORK'S NEXT GOVERNOR." John K. Smith, the labor union Mayor, the first chief executive elected by the Republicans in Oswego In some years, presided. His intro duction was admirably brief and to the point. "Let me present the next Governor of the State of New York. " he .said. And the audience indorsed what he said with loud cries of ap proval. Here again Mr. Hughes was able, thanks to the migratory life of a minister, to sper.k in opening his address of pleasant memories of boyhood days. Mr. Huches's father was paste* of the FJapt'.st Church h~re for several years in the late t'Kt's. Mr. Hughes spoke at some length on the be trayal of the Independence League by Hearst in Buffalo and by his deals with various bosses over local nominations This was particularly well received because in the audience were many of the seven hundred followers of ex-Mayor James K. Mansfield. He ;« the man who, aftet being placed in the Mayor's chair by Charles N. Rulger, Democratic boss of this region, tried to g°t the organization away from him Mansfield was the original Hearst man here, having started an Independence League last summer, but when Hearst went over to Murphy, body and soul. Mansfield became distrusted with him. When Hearst was here two weeks ago he came under the auspices of Bulger. The result was thai the Independence League went to pieces and Mansfield and most of bis friends will vote for Hughes, although they are not saying s-o for publication. In other parts of his soeech Mr. H;:ghes said an aspiration to be Governor was honorable only when a man was free to do his duty He spoke of the judiciary and other deals of Hearst with Murphy. Among the many Democrats on the stage was whltehalred John A. Barry, former Editor of "The Palladium." and a United States revenue inspector. He was in a front seat, with a heavy cane, and. he punctuated his entire approval of Mr. Hughes and his doctrines by pounding vio lently on the stage. There were several others in the cane brigade. "We want no anarchy in the name of reform" started the -canes to thumping vigorously and the hands of the others to clapping. Mr. Hughes said, in part: We are through. I hope, with conditions under which a representative of the people owes alle fiance to tome one not the people We desire to have it understood that every man that goes to Washington or to All any through the votes if his fellow citizens shall understand that he is responsible to these constituents for his dis charge Of his duty, unfettered by any Interest, only according to his conscience. And when a man comes home to give an account of himself and says thnt he has done ;his or that because he believed it to be tight, while he may be dis agreed with by his constituents, he will be just ly respected if he has acted as his conscience dictated. The American people da not require servitude. They require service, honorable service that a man can give who holds his own self-respect intact and who walks In the light of his own manhood. There is no part of our system of government which should be so carefully pro tected from any interference on the part of ■ boss as the Judicial branch of <»ur government. There Is no better test of a man's real inde pendent attitude, then la no better criterion of his real respect for an unfettered and conscien tious discharge of public duty, than his attitude toward the justices whom we place In out courts to dispense Justice impartially and according to law.

LEAGUE WINS ITS CASE TAMMANY MEN HELPED. Court of Appeals Decision Sustain* Multiple Petitions. Albany. Oct. 30. — The Court of Appeals de cided to-night that the making of independent nominations by multiple petition was not con trary, to the election statute, and affirmed tho right of th*» Independence League to make such nominations. The court also decided that in case of Judicial nominations the certificate filed first had prior claim, and that the Independencs League had a right to designate its o>n candi dates. The decisions were handed down at 11:15 o'clock to-night, following a special session of the court, which convened at 2:30 o'clock to-day for tho purpose of hearing the appeals frora Appellate Division orders in the New York City nomination cases. As a result of the decisions these candidates will be placed in the Independence League col- - umn on the official ballot: Edward J. Hannah. Labor and Independence) League candidate in the 18th Assembly District, New York. Francis E. Shober. Tammany candidate in the lah Congress District. Sherman S. Momand. Tammany candidate in 18th Senate District. Charles V. Fornes, Tammany candidate In th» 11th Congress District. William Sohmer. Tammany candidate in th« 12th Senate District. Henry M. GoldfogTe. Tammany candidate in the 9th Congress District. Judge Otto Rosalsky's name will also go Into the Independence League column. The nomination of John J. Brady for the Su preme Court, the court held, could not be placed in th.A Independence League column. The court dismissed the appeals in the other cases on the ground that questions of fact were, involved which would have to be passed upon by the Appellate Division. Under ordinary cir cumstances these cases would be sent back to the Appellate Division for review, but this can not be done, for the reason that the latter court could not dispose of them in time to permit the printing of the official ballot. DECISION BY THE WHOLE COURT. Judge Gray read the decision which was by the whole court. It follows: Six of the appeals before us ere from orders of the Appellate Division reversing on the law only decisions of th* Special Term. The sole ques tion involved in these appeals is whether, when certificates for Independent nominations are re quired to be filed in the same office, any one of such certificates shall be held invalid because it is made for the nomination of more than one candidate, the electors in. iking it being qualified to make a certificate for the nomination of all the candidates mentioned therein. We find nothing in the statute which, forbids nominating I certificates of this character; nor does there seem to be any practical ground which would be fatal to their validity. This Is in accordance with repeated decisions of this court and of the Appellate Division that the election law should be construed ÜbersJrj to give effect to the will of the people.. These views lead to a reversal of the order of the Appellate Division in these cases and to the affirmance of the order of the Special Tern. The foregoing relates to matter of applica tion of Edward J. Hannah: matter of tne-on plication of William S. Bennet; matter of the application of Martin Saxe; matter of the appli cation of Charles W. Letter; matter of the ap plication of Samuel Hoffman, and matt*-r~of-tfc9 *" application of Charles S. Adler In certain of the other cases the ord«»r of the Appellate Division is based upon the ground that the party appealing to the special term from the determination of the Board of Elec tions had no sufficient standing for thai pur pose, not being a party to the proceeding In this view of the Appellate Division we concur, it being in accordance with our previous decision <lV« V Y at 4- I *>" the Social Democratic party As to the question raised in one of the appeals (matter of the application or Samuel E. Terry) that the person nominated would be disqualified from election as a member of Assembly because a commissioner of deeds, we are of opinion that that question cannot be determined In proceed ings with reference to the certificate of nomina tion, hut must be left to the Assembly to deter mine in case of his election. The case of the People ex rei Sherwood vs. State Board of Can rassers (120 N. Y. :srtO> decides only that the court will not giro a disqualified candidate af firmative relief, but it does not authorize such a proceeding as this to have a nomination de clared invalid. In the appeals relating to the nominations for judicial offices, we concur in the opinion of the Appellate Division that Mr. John J. Brady could not under the statute be placed in the column, under the emblem of the Independence League. PRIOR PETITIONS GOOD. As to the contest between the several sets of Independence Id ague nominations, we are of opinion thru the certificate first filed under that title was entitled to preference; provided that. under the provisions of Section 56 of the Elec tion law. it was filed by the same "Independent body" which had made the state nominations. Whether the electors who joined In the first certificate, or those who made the second cer tificate, were the same -Independent body" pre sented ■■< question of fact on which the decisions of the courts below conclude us. In the remaining cases we are of opinion, de spite the forceful arguments on behalf of some of the appellants, that the objections filed raise,! Issues of fact, the determination of which rested with the Board of Elections; subject to review by the Supreme Court in both branches. With such determination w»- cannot interfere, as tha order in each of these cases is silent as to ths grounds on which It proceeds. Therefore. 1: may have been based on a question of fact, and we art precluded from reviewing it. This principle is equally applicable to a case where the Appel late Division had reversed, as to one where It has affirmed. It follows thai in an of the other appeals, save the six cases first mentioned, the order of th* Appellate Division must be affirmed. HILL REPRESENTS HEARST.
