BRYAX ONLY CANDIDATE
SO WOODSOX oriXES.
Secretary of Democratic National
Committee Can't See Hearst.
Cray A. TTeofl'on. of Kentucky, secretary of the
Democratic National Ccnimttte*. says that the only
formidable candidate for the Presidential nomina
tion In the summer of IMS will be William J. Bryan.
lie thinks that William 11. Hearst will retire from
the race before that time. Mr. Woodson Is In towp
tor a few flays and has been talking over the Demo
cratic situation with his friends.
•'I .own in Kentucky," paid Mr. Woofl*on. "we
look upon the result In this state this fall M a
Democratic victory. Personally, I am sorry that
Mr. Hearst did not win He was the candidate of
the regular organization, and he deserved success."
"Jf Hearst had won. would he not have been
the Democratic candidate for President In 1903?"
"If he had won he might have been a formidable
candidate for the nomination," eaid Mr. Woodson.
••but Users will be only one formidable candidate
for the nomination in Ml and he will be William
3. F.r>an. Mr. Hearst, if he has aspirations at that
time for the Presidency, will »M the tide running
Bryan's way, and will step aside. From what I
knew of the sentiment among the Democrats all
over the country. Mr. Bryan will be the command
ing figure at the next national convention. People
berin to know Bryan. They begin to recognize his
moral qualities. They may differ with him. but
they respect him. He stood atide two years ago
end let the conservatives try the experiment of run
ning a New York conservative for the Presidency.
The experiment was disastrous to the party. Mr.
Bryan supported Mr. Parker, but It was apparent
from the beginning of the campaign that the peo
ple were in a mood of radical tlWnklng. and that a
conservative w*uld not fill the bllL
"Mr. Hearst's friends may be perfectly sincere in
their tesJre to see him nominated two years from
cow. They may nave the delegates from this stats

pledgefl to him. That will not make much differ
ence. The Bryan wave will be so strong and big
that It will ewamp -verythina; in elyht. leaving
Bryen the nominee on the first ballot.'
Before Mr. Woodsoo I«ivm town he will discover
that William R. Hearst is i^i>-lns; pipes for the con
trol of Om New York <3«wWg-ation In the next na
tional convention. The Independence League, act-
Ing: un.vr direction of Mr. Hearst, on Tuesday
nieht formally decided to keep the league organ
izations nlivo nil over th« *>tat».
It is going to com money to keep up the fight,
t>ut M: . Hearst apparently is rot eatigft>d with the
r«w=ult on November 6 The Independence league
polled more than enough votes to entitle It to a
peparate column as a btat« organization. This is
fomethlnp of a political onset In itself.
More than -uiv other fiJvrntasre. however, Is the
fart thßt If Hearst keeps his organization alive, as
he plans. h« will bo in n position to force Murphy
to do in IS»* what he forced him to do this year—
thai is, give him what he wants. Unless present
rlgn* ar« misleading. Mr Murphy will be com
pelled to turn over to Mr. Hearst the delegates to
the national convention. Hearst is in a position to
compel the delivery.
These are pome of the things that Secretary
Woods' will be aV.le to tel". his friends when he
fo<?s back to Kentucky.

CLASH OVER CANVASS.
Gilbert Objects to Dotdl's Method
of Reading Tally Sheets.
A. 8. Gilbert, representing the Republican party.
Interrupted the work of the board of canvassers
yesterday afternoon by objecting: to the method
pursued by Chairman Doull in calling off the vote
from the ballot clerks' return. He said that ha
would Immediately obtain an order to show causa
why the figures should not be read exactly as they
are upon returns.
Chairman Doull said he had no objections to
doing bo, and declared that he had simply corrected
palpable mistakes to avoid summoning election
boards to correct errors of entry. He said It would
require the summoning of six hundred boards to
correct returns as they were wanted by Mr. Gilbert.
The argument between Mr. UHbert and Chairman
Doul! was over the entries of void ballots The
sheets provided by the Klectlon Hoard leave a
column only for wholly void ballots, and not for
partly void. TUopo Wholly void are mid off, but
the partly void are not read until the returns for a
particular candidate are read off. In such instances
Chairman Doull would assume that the wholly
void had not been deducted and this number, to
gether with the partly void, was read off. This
inudt) no difference in the face of the Inspectors'
and police returns, but Mr. Gilbert contended that
unless the figures were read exactly as they ap
peared on the returns he would be unable to check
up with the police returns for void ballots. He de
clared there might not be any change In the vote
as a result, but he wanted th» canvass made
strictly according to law.
He said that Chairman Doull had no right to
assume what the ballot clerks meant, no matter
how palpable an error was.
The board will hold night sessions, beginning to
night. to hear the election boards which may be
summoned. While the corrections will be done at
night, the resp.ilar work of the canvass will continue
during the day.
The board In Kings met with difficulties in mak
ing the canvass. The canvass began with the first
of the twenty-three Assembly district* In the
county, and prut as fur as the 12th Election Dis
trict in the 2d Assembly District. The tally sheets
In six of the election districts of the Ist and" In
several election districts of the 2d Assembly Dis
trict are missing, and the work will be held up
until they are secured.
Many clerical errors have been discovered, es
pecially In connection with the reports of the voting
on the Judiciary tickets. The clerical errors, so far
have not changed the count, and do not affect the
repults announced. fT
No official tabulation was made of pains and
losses in either county, and It ia impossible, owing
to the muddled condition of the affairs la both to
make any estimates.
MEETING OF RAILWAY SURGEONB.
Seven papers dealing with railroad accident In
juries were read at the annual meeting: of the New-
York and New England Association of Railway

FOLK COMING NORTH.
WILL TAKE TESTIMONY.
Missouri and Minnesota Move —
Jerome Gets More Evidence. .
It Is the intention of Commissioner Folk of
Tennessee, The . Tribune learned yesterday, to
visit New York within the next few days and
take testimony not only from George T. Dexter,
the Mutual Life's second vice-president, but
also from certain members of the agency qnm
mlttee said to have been responsible for the
recent alleged coercion of employes by this com
It Is understood that Mr. Folk will postpone
his decision on the question of revoking the
company's charter In Tennessee until after the
taking of this testimony.
In insurance circles it is considered entirely
possible that henceforward protest against the
company's alleged coercion will take the form
not of the Institution of criminal suits, but of
revocation of the company's charters by the
insurance commissioners or superintendents of
the various states. Already revocations of Ita
charter, it was learned, threaten the company
not only in Tennessee, but in Missouri and Min
nesota. Commissioner Vandiver of Missouri, it
Is said, promises to take such action against the
Mutual Life this month.
An address to policyholders of the New York
Life and Mutual Life signed by Governor John
son, Attorney General Young and Insurance
Commissioner Young, all of Minnesota, cams
into the possession of The Tribune last night
There are 27.000 Minnesota pollcyholders in
the two companies, carrying nearly $30,000,000
of Insurance. The address declares that "the
election of the so-called 'administration ticket*
means a continuance of the control directly're
sponsible for the abuses that existed." The ad
dress reads further:
"The work of the Armstrong Investigating
committee in New York has been continued by
the International policyhold»rs" committee. It
has been urged in some quarters that It Is un
wise to elect boards composed entirely of new
men, but it is an admitted fact that the mem
bers of the old boards had in general no knowl
edge of life insurance and were careless of the
responsibilities of their positions."
After saying that public confidence In both
companies can be restored only by a change in
management, so far as officers and directors are
concerned, the address adds:
"This change will not extend further, as each

WORK OX THAW CASE.
Prisoner's htmgen Preparing His
Defence — Mn. Thaxc at Tombs.
Lawyers for Harry Kendall Thaw were hust
ling yesterday to perfect their plans for his de

shooting Stanford White. The belief was gen

part on "the unwritten law," although probably
It would be necessary. In conjunction with that.
to lay considerable stress on the argument that
the prisoner might have been temporarily In
Announcement was made that the trial would
be begun on December 8 before Recorder Goff.
The District Attorneys office feels confident
that the trial can be completed before December
81, when Recorder Goff will take a seat In the
Supreme Court. There Is still a likelihood,
though, that this programme may be changed
and the case shifted to the criminal branch of
the Supreme Court, where Justice Newburger
would try it. District Attorney Jerome opposed
a suggestion made some time ago by Clifford
W. Hartridge, personal counsel for Harry Thaw,
that the case be taken to the Supreme Court,
and it is known that he wants the case tried
before Recorder Goff and rushed through.
The Thaw lawyers were not communicative
yesterday. Mr. llartridge had a long Interview
with Thaw in the Tombs. Dolphin Michael
Delmas, the .California lawyer, who has been
brought here to take a leading part in the de
fence, also visited Harry Thaw. Both lawyers
declined to discuss the case in any way. Mr.
Delmaa has been brought round promptly to
Mr. Hurtridge'a policy of silence.
Harry Thaw prepared himself for the trial by
ordering several suits of clothes yesterday. He
had a tailor call at the Tombs with samples of
cloth. Mrs. Thaw Inspected them and helped
make the selections. Then Thaw was meas
ured and gave special instructions to have Urn
suits fit well when he was sitting. Dr. Mc-
Gulre. the Tombs physician, reported to the Dis
trict Attorney's office that Thaw is in good
shape and that he has gained weight. Thaw
himself told the jailers that he felt about 100
per cent better than he did when he was ar

The railroad has sent Mrs. Seton a map showing
that It intends to run the new road directly
through the Indian camp ground and the artificial

VOTLNGFOR ERIE STRIKE
Ooattnued from flr>»t pnc«.
of Mr. Hannahan from the ctty yesterday morn-
Ins;. He said hf» was going to Peorja, 111., on
business and might b«» hack to-morrnw or Sat
urday, when the strike vote would be in. He
would say nothing about a rumor that he might
see Mr. Underwood on his trip. He said:
"Everything Is In such shape that I can safely
leave the city for th* present. I shall be back
soon to continue my conferences with the men.
The Indications now are that there will b<» no
He said nothing about a strike of the firemen,
however. Since his original strike statement h*
appears to have avoided the subject.
There were reports that the strike vote was
merely formal, and was taken to test the senti
ment of the men and not with any Intention of
ordering a strike at ©resent. This appeared to
be the view generally accepted yesterday, though
Hannahan could approvs of a strike in case the
vote is for a strike.
The) adjustment committee of the Erie en
gineers, which Is in conference with Assistant
General Manager Stone, had nothing to say yes
terday except to reiterate the belief that there
would he no trouble. A representative of the
Erie Railroad said that the road was preparing
plans for Introducing electrlo motors on about
273 miles of its suburban lines In New Jersey.
It would be Impossible to say nntll the experi
ment was made exactly how they would man the
electric lines. The present engineers ■would
probably be the motormen, but fitness would be
the requirement. A man who had been an
engineer continuously for forty years, ha said,
would find It harder to learn a radically new
system than a young fireman.
There were reports last night that some of the
railroads were contemplating: the raising of
wages at nearby points soon. One of the re
ports was that It was proposed to Increase the
wages of the men employed at the terminals of
various companies in Jersey City.
Assistant Grand Chief Hurley of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers was In charge o<
affairs for all the committees of the engineers
yesterday. Grand Chief Stone having left tha
city late Tuesday night. The adjustment com
mittee of the engineers of the New York Cen
tral began conferences yesterday at tho Grand
Contral Station with the officials of the road.
Chairman Watson of the committee said that a
peaceful settlement was practically certain.
According to Mr. Hurloy, the engineers will
ask for the eight-hour workday on the Blow
"Some of these trains," he said, "run at tho
rate of not more than ten miles an hour. That
is because It takes them all their time to pull
the long string of cars attached to them. By
shortening the string the speed could be raised
to twelve mites; and this would make the eight
hour workday an easy proposition to meet"
