Hearing on Democratic Convention
Muddle Goes on in Boston.
Boston, Oct. 12.— The "Whitney faction won two
favorable rulings from the Ballot Law Commis
sion, which Is engaged In the ta*=k of adjudicat
ing the contest In the # Democratic ranks ocoa-
Floned by tho turbulent convention last Satur
day at Springfield in the course of William S.
McNary*s continued testimony shortly after the
bearing opened to-day. The Brst of these rul
inga brushed arfde the objections raised by coun
sel for Mr. Uartlett to having the witness de
clare in lisjtliiisij that he knew the convention
sttcers were Bartl?tt supporters.
Ti •• second ruling came on a question put to
Mr McNary as to what was customary in past
years in selecting convention offlriais. when,
despite stron* protest from the Bartlett counsel,
he cited a contest for the Governorship nomina
tion several years ago between William A. Gas
ton and 1 hsxles F. Hamlin, when the commit
tee on credentials was then made up of mem
bers of both factions.
Mr. Parker, counsel for Mr. Whitney, In mak
ing a plea to the commission when the Brst ob
feetion was raised, maintained that it was nec
ssamry to show •rbether Mr. Klley. as chairman
of the committee appointed to selecl a list of
«onvention oAclals, acted in »ood faith In look
ln after both aides or In bad faith by being pav
tisan in his choloa. .
Mr. M.-Nsry told of aeveral conferences wnloii
he had bad v.ith Jolm P. Feeney and Daniel J.
Kiley. of the state committee, previous to th<»
convention, and bow strongly he had urged
them to arrange for convention officers who
woald bs acceptable to both the Whitney and
Bartlett supporters. None of these conferences,
Mr. IfcKary said, resulted in any compromise,
and Mr. Kil<\v tsisted on betas temporary ehalr
man of tlio invention.
Mr. McNary then related his eKpwrlence« In
trying to obtain admission t.. the theatre. Two
tickets wen Issued tn exchange for his creden
tial, a pink mr for admisaton and a blue one for
voting purposes. When once Inside he found
the orchestra partly Oiled, and he recognized .1
numb of sa*e« froi 1 Boston, naif of whom,
he ftdcicd, appeared to him to be second class
pugilists. He then told of Chairman Feeney's
call to order and Mr. Keliiher's announcement
that there- were still a number of delegates in
lin# outside.
Mi HeKarj said that lie nominated Mr. Conry
;is temporary chairman, but that Cliairmun
Feeney recognized another man who proposed
the *anie name. Kiley's name was then pre
sontod as a substitute and Mr. McNary de
manded a ballot. Mr. Feeney. he added, was
looldag al him at the time, but refused to rec
• ijrnize him and called i<ir a volco vote. He
put the ■ , y, >•.•■ but, declared the witness, did
not |.;,i the "noes."' .Mr. McNary doubted the
V'it<>. and ngaln demanded a roll call, but the
chairman icnored the protest and declared Mr.
Kiley elected.
Mr. McNary said he then went back up tlie
aisl<>. and, mounting a seat, addressed the dele
) cates about him. declaring they were not getting 1
! fair treatment, and calling upon them to take ,
! some action.
j Nomination papers were taken out at the of- j
: fice of the Secretary of State to-day by repre- I
| sentatlves of General Barrett. ' It is under- I
J etood that In case the Ballot Commission should I
j decide that the ticlcet htaded by Henry M.
; Whitney Is a rr-jjular Democratic ticket General
! Bartlett and those nominated with him for other
; rtato offices will run on nomination papers. It
[ls expected that the Whitney supporters will
' take similar action.

WHITMAN TO FIGHT HARD
General Sessions Candidate to Speak
Throughout County.
It waa announced yesterday that diaries S. Whit
man, Republican and Independence League candi
date for the General Sessions bench, v/ould make a
"rattling" campaign throughout every district in
the county. The Republican campaign committee
is also arranging to have the other Republican can
dldatea for the bench, with the exception of Justice
Bruce, apeak at meetings in all the districts. .Her
bert Parsons, president of the County Committee,
will not apeak from the public platform on account
of his official position.
In speaking of Judg* "Whitman's candidacy for
the Court of G?m-ral Sessions, District Attorney
Jerome naid last night: "Every decent citizen
should register and vote for Judge Whitman, If he
votes for no one else. This is a plain duty. If
Judge Whitman is not elected we will be deprived
of the services of a very upright and efficient pub
lic servant and a real public wrong will be done.
It Is true that he has been on the bench of the
General Sessions only three months, but In that
ahort time he has demonstrated clearly the wisdom
of Governor Hughes in selecting him."
William M. Ivins yesterday gave out a statement
in which he urged every foe of Tammany Hall to
t;et out and register. He said that a strong Re
publican majority should be returned to the As
sembly to assist Governor Hughes in his work of
reform and to work for the passage of many Im
portant measures that would come up at Albany
next atoter. Mr. Ivtna eald. among other things:
For a man to sulk at this time and throw sway
the Dossibilitv of voting, and thus produce comii
tlons whereby the Tammany representation wouia
le Increased, would be a great miafortune. We
know perfcfTlv well who controls the Tammany
<iele tior.. We kn..w perfectly well tha tha dele
gation acts practically as a unit in behalf of .ie
mubters of finance, whether Democratic or Rppub
s^^r^r iiifi
circumstances.
President Parsons spent most of yesterday di
recting the leaders In their efforts to get out the
registration. He said that all of the leaders with
the coeption of a few who had right along been
opposed to his administration were working with
a will for the success of the ticket.
Prank Moss sent a long letter to Mr. Parsons
yesterday In which he rather severely criticised
tho head of the county committee for making pub
lic the circumstances of tho talk Mr. Moss had
about ills possible candidacy for a place on the
General Sessions bench. Referring to his talk with
Mr. Parsons on the day before the convention Mr.
Moss wrote:
The City >'ourt waa not mentioned between us—
and not cue word was *aiil on tl."t 1 ." Question of

BRAYTON QUITS CAPITOL.
Gives Up Headquarters at Rhode
Island State House.
Providence. Oct. 12.— 1 a a letter sent to Lieu
tenant Governor Frederick H. Jackson, dated
October 3. and given out to-day by the Repub
lican candidate for Governor at the coming elec
tion. General Charles R. Brayton, the Republican
national commltteeman. states that he will not
occupy the sheriff's office at the state house as
his headquarters during the sessions of the Leg
islature, nor U!«e that office for the purpose of
transacting any legislative or political business.
Ho also atatea to the Lieutenant Governor that
ho will not attempt to assurhe control of tho Re
publican campaign.
General Brayton has been recognized as A
power in Republican politics for many years, and
In tho last state campaign all alleged influence
was one of the prominent Issues. For years he
had occupied desk room in the sheriff's office,
but he gave up hla quarters there a few months
ago. , ,
The announcement of General Brayton s in
tentions came as a surprise to political leaders
of both parties. Governor Hlggins. of Pawtucket.
a Democrat, who was elected last year, had
expressed his intention of driving General Bray
ton from the State Capitol, and during the legis
lative session made several attempts to get the
general out of the office of Sheriff White, but
the general persistently refused to go. The
Governor commanded Sheriff White not to allow
Brayton to u«e his office, referring to Brayton as
"a notorious lobbyist," but the Sheriff. In re
plying to tho Governor, refused to oust General
Brayton and accused the Governor of attempt-
Ing to make political capital.
In his letter General Brayton comments on the
attempts to displace him as follows:
During the campaign of 1908 tha TK>Tr.r>,-ratic
candidate for Governor pledged himself to drive
me out of the State House if he was elected. T
I did no» believe that he had either the right ™r
the power to •!<> this, and I therefore went there
as frequently as I could, and often at consfder
able iconvenlence to myself during last winter's
aaasion, for the purpose of demonstrating thut
he could not carry his threat into execution.
The l»ttf>r continues:
I am now. told ti'ii many good Republicans
yourse!i among them— think that my continued
presence in th< Sheriffs oITUe langen th<?
buccesa of the part) In the approaching election,
because it gives our opponents something to
talk about and affords an excuse to some who
have recently opposed the candidates of tho
party while professing to approve Its principles.
1 " : - firm »t all a Republican, and l earn< stly
•■ Ish for the i ompli sue eaa of the Republican
party now and always, because I think that the
welfare of the country demands It. If my pres
ence at any particular place is thought by any
oonslderable number of Republii to be an
obstacle to Republicai SUCCMfI I intend tn keep
away rrona that pla<«\ And I th refore assure
you that I shall not occupy the Sheriffs otAce at
the State House as my >„ idqu in during th«
■••■loi of the Legislature, nor urn thai offlco
for the purpose of transacting any legislative or
political business.
r ha\*c also heard It Intimated that >'°v hes
itate to acc«pt a Republican nomination for
Governor becauM you Pear that I may attempt
to assume ; troi ol the Republican campaign
and thus alienate from you tin- support of those
who nr« personally opposed to me, I therefore
further xs*\it-' you that i Bhall do nothing of the
kind and thafwhila as a good Republican T shall
earnestly hope for your success, I «hall respect
your wishes if y.-> i are chosen as tho standard
