Ex-Governor Disapproves Methods
of Republican State Campaign.
Ex-Governor <Mell yesterday criticised th« way
the Republican state campaign was conducted,
characterizing It as "asinine." Mr. Odell'e expres
sion of his opinions caused much comment among
politicians. Many de<lared that his utterances did
not come with .'specially gonO. grace from him as
a Republican, even If he had not bean absolutely
In sympathy with the political leaders who advo
cated the nomination of Charles E. Hughe, and
worked for hie election.
It wa* pointed out that Mr. Odell himself, as
leader of Orauge County, failed to return Senator
Goodsell, his personal choice for the Senate nom
ination for that district, and a Republican Assem
blyman to succeed Louis Bedell. He called at
state headquarters only once during? the campaign,
and at that time did not tee Chairman "Woodruff.
Mr. Odell waa at the Fifth Avenue Hotel yes
terday, talking with Colo.iel Reuben I* Fox. who
wu secretary of the state committee when he was
chairman. He was asked what he thought about
the result of th» election,
"I would nardly call it satisfactory from a Re
publican standpoint." ne replied. "It worn, to mo

"It was most asinine. There was the most asinine
policy I ever knew. As a result we have elected

Official Figures Beturned from a
Number of Counties.
Albany, Nov. 18. — To-day was tho day set for
the county boards of supervisors to meet and
canvass the votes cast at the state election last
week. In a number of counties the work was
completed, but In others It was alow and may
require several days.
Tho work In this county will probably consume
at least three days. The Republican and Demo
cratic parties and the Independence I^«igue
were represented by commltteamen or lawyers
to watoh th»» count. The official canvaee of. the
vote In eleven of the nineteen wards of the city
of Albany was completed late this afternoon,
and an adjournment taken until to-morrow
morning. With the exception of the Ist district
of the #th Wi#rd, where an error In the unofficial
returns omitted thirty votes cast In favor of
Jackson, the Democratic, and Independence
L*>aj?ue candidate for Attorney General, no ma
terial differences from the figure, already pub
lished were found.
The Madison County vote for O'Brien and
Whalen. candidate* for Secretary of State, was
not Included In ihii statement furnished by the
County Clerk' 3 office to-night, and cannot be
obtained before to-morrow.

First Canvasses in Metropolitan Dis
trict Advance Him 128.
The first returns from the boards of can
vasj^ers of the metropolitan district yesterday
showed errors, plvinff Bruce a net gain of 128
votes over the first returns. In the 17th Elec
tion District of the Ist Assembly District ot
Queens there were found 158 votes accredited to
Chanler, when they should have been placed on
the record for Bruce. In one district In Osslnlng,
however, the canvass gave Chanler a gain of
80, making a net gain of 12S for Bruce so far.
In the sama Ossmlng district the canrasa re
duced the Hearst vote by 100.
The Queens sheet In which errors appear
shows the trflal number of votes cast, but in
some unaccountable way does not account for
the missing ballots. They are placed on the sheet
neither as void nor as blank ballots, and It la
therefore thought that It was either an over-
Bight or an error of the man making out the
final tally sheet.
In the 18th District of Queens the figures
show an error of 100 votes on the Governorship
vote, but It Is corrected and carried on properly
In another section of the sheet. In the entire
Assembly district there are recorded 63 void,
blank and contested ballots, many of which
muat be thrown out.

Trenton. Nov. 13. — From the plze of the crowd
nround the State House corridors to-day and
tho Interest manifested. It might have been sup
posed that the Republican caucus for United
States Senator was to be held to-morrow. In
stead of two months hence. As a matter of fact,
the crowd and the Interest were largely owing to
the circumstances Incident to the first Gov
ernor's day after election. It is a custom for
the new members especially to come down on
that day and get acquainted with one another
and become familiar with the surroundings of
the state capital.
Everything was augmented, however, by the
Senate contest, interest In which Is Intense, The
occurrences >>f the day much resembled those of
1887, when Rufus Blodgett came In at the last
moment and snatched tho prize from Leon Ab
bett. Tho difference Is a difference in time. Tha
Wodgett gamo was not played until the eve of
lhe actual caucus. Now the plotting and plan
ning are taking place weeks and weeks ahead
of ti>.<- regular time for the caucus. That fact
alone canst d the cry that a caucus was to ha
forced now because It was to the advantage of
Senator Dryden to try conclusion, as soon as
possible for fear delay would render his chances
less favorable.
There was nothing !n this The hope was
that a show of sentiment might be made of po
strong a character as practically to settle the
question of the Benatorshlp well In advance.
But such a hope, if v really existed. f« -11 to the
ground before night. The knowledge that at
this th'ie thTP are four Republicans who will
not enter a caucus If Dryden's name is used
was enougb to u[>.<=-' all plant and stop all
Senator Drrden In Indeed earnest In hl^ flßhr.
I!*- thinks he can win and intends t>> win. He
baa discovered that he baa been Injured by the
efforts <>f others to manage his campaign for
him and is now personally conducting his can
vass, lie came down to Trenton last evening
and had Governor Stokes and State Treasurer
Brlggs ilin<> with him. They were the only can
didates he k'n-v. were reported to be In the Held
against him.
When the after dinner talk was over Mr.
Hrisss had assured the Senator he was with
him and need not be considered a factor in the
fight. Tho Governor anon Oiled Mr Dryden
with hope and anon with doubt. That is the
way it ended for th.> night. Senator Dryderi
wont to bed Governor Stokes sat up until ,*{
o'clock chatting with Everett Colby, the Sena
tor from Eases What they sal.l to each other
neither would disclose to-day, It is reported
that Colby urged the Governor to get Into the
fight actively, and tin- Governor <lid not say yea
or nay At any rate Colby, who remained here
until this evening, was in rare good humor.
The Senator was around bright and early this
morning, and did a hard day's work. He first
received some personal friends at th»> hotel, and
then came up to the Stat* House ahont the'tlma
the crowd was arriving. He. shook hands with
all those in the corridors and then went into th«
Governor's room, where there was r,..m,- very
hearty handshaking " Boon after the Senator's
arrival Senator John Kean appeared on th->
scene, and tho handshaking was repeated Mi
Kean had very little to say, but intimated that
n« believed Mr. Dryden had a gr.od show In tho
race. About noon th<* Governor's room was oc
cupied by the Governor, Senators Kean and
Dryden. ex-Senator William If. Johnson Presl
aent Uradley of the Senate and several of th
benatorn. , Th conferred a little while and then

In all to some $22,000. declaring that the lon
