Adjournment Probable June J I or 12— Hughes Sends Message. [By Telegraph to The Tribune 1 Albany, May 27.— Having counted noses and found that not a majority of legislators dared defy Gov ernor Hughes by taking adjournment before passing again on the anti-racetrack gambling bills, the leaders of both houses to-day, after a series of con ferences, mapped, out a definite programme for tho remainder of the extraordinary session convened two weeks ago. A recess will be taken on Friday until Monday. June 8. That night or n*-xt day Senator Foelker Is expected to be here, according to information received In several quarters to-day. Then Gov ernor Hughes will resume his recommendations for the repeal of the Porcy-Gray racing law. The Legislature will pass on that, clean up al! its other work and adjourn sine die June 11 or 12. The Assembly voted to-day to adjourn June 1!. but the Senate did not Concur in the resolution. Meanwhile, though lacking the courage to defy the Governor outright, because of the public sup port they know he has. a good body of legislators publicly and privately lose no opportunity to heap Insults on him by shir, iaunt and innuendo. His sending in a message to-day containing recommen dations for several pieces of needed though not sensationally important legislation was made the occasion for a bitter speech of denunciation and attempted ridicule in the Assembly by Mr. Palmer, of Schoharie. In the Senate various members or ganised an impromptu farce, in which was a bitter drift of gibes and jeers at the Governors person ality and policy. ATFAIRS MOVE SWIFTLY. Affairs moved swiftly to-day. Hughes men, hav ing seen the dilatory tactics which were in vogue Up to last night, and knowing the efforts made by political bosses and representatives of the racing Interests and others inimical to the Governor to slir up a bad break between Legislature and ex€-cu tive. argue that failure to accomplish this portends well for the success Of the anti-gambling meas ures. Some of them consider the bitterness shown to-day as bitterness attendant on the defeat of the anti-Hughes contingent. Rut only the Governor can crystallize the public sentiment necessary to assure the passage of the racing bills, and his other measures In the short time remaining. Early this morning the anti-Hughes men thought they had the situation all figured out. They were going to have a resolution introduced In the Assem bly setting adjournment Fine die for next Thurs day, regardless of whether <-t not the racing bills had come tip for a vote again. But just about the timr- to carry this scheme into execution several Assemblymen began t > g» % t coid f fi et and weak knees, while some of the anti-Hughes Senators who had boen loudest In their denunciation of him ceased to complain about the torrid weather here. Then, to complete their demoralisation, came the report that the Governor was about to send in a message. Nobody knew what It might contain, and consternation reigned for a few minutes. Senator Raines and Speaker WadSWOTth there upon went downstairs to see the Governor. They described the situation to him briefly, and askM for some guidance as to the procedure to be fol lowed for the rest of the session. The Governor told them thai by June S ho expected to be able to say definitely whether or not he should have fur ther recommendations 'o make to the legislature. That was sufficient for them. Immediately a conference of Republican Senators was called, at which the Speaker. Mr. Meiritt, the majority leader, and other Assembly leaders wore preseni. There the scheme for a week's recess was adopted. Considerable rancor toward the Gov ernor was manifested. Senator Cassidy wanted to adjourn next Thursday, tli« rehy dodging the race track proposition, lie four votes for his mo tion. Senator Hooker wanted the recess to extend until after the Chicago convention, but this was voted down. Senator Hinrnan suggested that the legislature stay right on" the job continuously. LEGISLATORS SOMEWHAT APPEASED. The recess having been decided on. the legislators returned to work somewhat appeased, though none th<- less opposed to the Governor's recommenda tions, indeed, the Assembly Judiciary Committee Immediately thereafter slaughtered the direct nomi nations bill Jovially, and when Mr. Green, its in troducer, tried to resuscitate the victim by moving to discharge th< committee, the entire Assembly chased him away and overturned his ambulance. By a vote of S to - tli<* committee refused to re port the bill, and C. i". Foley's direct nomina tions measure, drafted along somewhat different lines, also. Green and Hamn were those who voted for it. Thereafter, when the Assemblj nvened. Green moved to discharge the committee. Bev erley K. Robinson, of New York, attacked the meas ure viciously. He declared it w.is so full of Imper fections It would be unworkable, and so should not be passed, as. if passed, any organization fail in- to adopt it would be subjected to Imputation of unsavory motives for refusing. il" said 'he scheme proposed would force political workers lo spend much more time and effort in the field. ;.od itig the remarkable conclusion: "In practice it would weed out some of the most valuable members of the Legislature" Assemblyman Phillips, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which twice *ref used to report the bill, defended that course and attacked the bill. The motion to (iisctiarK* 4 the committee was lost, 30 to r M. a pain of three votes for the bill over the vote when Assemblyman Francis, at the regular session, trwik a similar motion out of Mr. Green's hands and had the bill killed thereby. Thus the Assembly at this extra session already had killed two of the Governor's most important recommenda tions—the direct nominations scheme, to abolish misrepresent:. live party bosses, and the new Public Service bill for telephone and telegraph companies. ASSEMBLY PASSES THREE BILLS. The Assembly passed to-day three bills, designer! to embody recommendations made by the Governor. They are those of .1. S. Parker, creating a mer cantile inspection bureau in the Stfite Department of Labor; B. R. Robinson, to provide a more com plete means of indentifying electors in New York, and B. R. Robinson, reducing from 500 to +»i the number of electors in an election district ii New York. The Assembly Judiciary Committee reported unanimously the Phillips bill to prevent an elec tor from signing a petition for nomination unless he Is entitled to vote for such candidate. Th<" committee amended the D. C. Robinson bill to regulate political parties to make it conform to the amendment made to the McCarren bill by the Senate Judiciary Committee. By a practically iinalmous vote the Judiciary Committee reported the hill of Senator Page plac ing telephone and telegraph companies under the jurisdiction of the Public Service commissions. The Assembly this afternoon passed a joint reso lution fixing upon Thursday. June 11, at 2 p. m.. as the time for final adjournment of the extraordinary session. The resolution went to the Senate for con currence, where it was handed duwn and referred to the Finance Committee. Tho Governor's special message included the fol lowing subjects: Knlargement of the powers of the State Court of Claims, appropriation for further elimination of grade crossings, improvement of harbor facilities at Syracuse, appropriation to cover appeal to th* T'nlted States Supreme Court in the so-called 80-cent gas case, establishment of the new state farm fur women on the. site at Com- Stock purchased by the state a few years ago for a. state hospital, local legislation for New Rochelie, Mount Kisco and Kye, Westcbester County; Tan nersvlle, Greene County, and Genesee, Livingston County, and Whitestone, Oneida County; amend ment of the village law, authorizitiK Villages to borrow money la anticipation of the annual tax levy. The special message of Governor Hughes fol lowed >< conference With Senator Raines and Speaker Wadworth, In which the Governor In formed them that he had selected a few of the many subjects which he had been urgently re quested to present to the extraordinary session. In his message Governor Hughes says of the recommendation to Increase and enlarge the Jurisdiction of the Court of Claims that there was great need of a general statute "providing for meritorious claims which come within the policy of such K^netal law and putting «n end to the practice r,f seeking this result by the passage of special bills In aid of particular cases" Of the recommendation of the appropriation to rover the expenses of appeal to the United States Supreme Court in the gas case the Governor says: "It appears that no appropriation is available to cover the payment and deposit required In order to avoid dismissal of the appeal whi-'h bas been advanced and set for argument ntxt fall. and Immediate provision "should t>« made for this P The "recommendation relative to harbor facilities in Syracuse is as follows: "Providing for harbor facilities in connection with the barge canal at Syracuse -A hill for this purpose was passed at the regular session and failed because of an error with regard la the route of th« canal." The Governor Bays of the local subjects recom mended: "All these matters. I am assured, are of urgent Importance to the communities affected." Senator Carpenter immediately after the receipt of the message Introduced two bills. legalizing a bond- issue of Mount Klsco and authorizing New Rochelle to issue bonds to meet outstanding In debtedness. Senator Raines introduced a bill re latin? to the power of village trustees. Seven bills were reported to the Senate to-day, but only two were permitted to go to the order of final passage. These were the bills of Senator Armstrong, appropriating $100,000 for rebates on surrender of liquor tax certificates, and Senator Kaincs, defining who may sign nominating peti tions.

HEARST GAINS 27 VOTES OPEN TWO BALLOT BOXES. Used in "Little Tim" and "Ftorrie" Sullivan Districts. The attempt of William Randolph Hearst to prove that he, and not George B. McClellan. was elected Mayor of New York In 1305 actually got under way before Justice Lambert and a Jury In the Supreme Court yesterday. During the six hours court was in session two ballot boxes were opened, with the result that Hearst gained twenty seven votes. At this rate It would take about three years to open the 1.913 ballot boxes. Just before adjourning court yesterday Justice Lambert ordered that five more boxes be brought in, making eight to be examined to-day, and he Intimated that some more expeditious method would be devised to hasten the recount. Clarence J. Shearn, counsel for Mr. Hearst, said he was pleased with the outcome, and he expected to finish the case In about six weeks. Although yesterday was the first time the case made perceptible headway from a layman's point of view, the circumstances were hardly thrilling. By order of the court five ballot boxes worn brought In from the Manhattan Storage Ware house, and two were examined from, the 2d Elec tion District of the 6th Assembly District and from the 7th Election District of the Sth Assembly District.

The officers went to th» Florida a . once, but before they got then» her it. ■•■. ,■••■• "jacki«»s'* detailed from the receiving ship Franklin and aflrann] by Commander John ft. Quimhy, comTr.andinjr: Lieutenant Joseph K. Taussi? and a gunner, had come up from the hoUi and men looking over the damage. The plate had been broken through from Urn bob port to the edge just above and just aaloa where the shell struck. Th» broken pi>e« had been driven into the turret several inches, but not the thickness of the plate. 30 that BO bole was actually made. The detonation was somewhat imperfect, as was « '^need 0/ the quantity of sulphur- like powder which cov rrp'l the break and mast. This failure to realize the full stmajtli of the powder 13 i rri»d &a injecting the only uncertain element into th» test. Officers entered the turret at mr» and tt3 mechanism was operated, the turret bein? swung: completely around each way, and t!M left hand Bun trained. The right gait, th* ■'< rip;.'- nm in place •<! the regular one. which bad been removed for th» test, of c?urs» could not be trained, besuie?. the broken plat* had wedged against it. This, the officers said. would not have prevented the gun being: fired, although it would have interfered with ti!* sighting. But the turret bore the evidences of a fight. The paint along the seams had disappeared, many of the seams were sprung, bolts were loosened and slivers lay around. a board dummy inside was intact, and the opinion of officers was that even with the terrific impact the gunners in the turret would not have been Injured. The mechanism in the turret bore n) outward evidence of dnmag>». and the belief wa3 expressed that a test would find it in working order. It was nearly m»>n before the officers had satisfied themselves with th-=> turret experiment. and attention was turned to testing the ftghtir.? mast. The first shot that structure was fired from one of the 4-inch giir-n of the Ar kansas, and besides piercing an iron plate tar fret .it its bifse cut one of the auppurtir.s: pipes and injured others. The second shot was fr>>m .he same gun. and cut two tubes a little higher up and another side of the mast. The third shot missed, and then the order was given to fire a 4-inch ex plosive shell high up near the top of the mast. This shook the structure and tore asunder I number of the tubes, but the mast seemed as stable as ever. The fifth and last shot was a solid shot from the big 12-inch gun. aimed s» as to hit the mast on its outer rim on the sid» leaning toward the water, the structure fearing purposely been tilted at an angle of 10 degrees to make it easier to fall. Th- terriSc shot tora holes through many of the supporting tubes, but the mass still stood firm. Lieutenant K. I> "White, target inspector, climbed to the top and started the structure to vibrating, but without makinsr apparent any weakness. That the masJ might be put to the greatest strain, four ton* Of weight had been placed at its top. The ad vantage of the mast is declared to have been fully demonstrated. Its points an that It I* practicably indestructible with shot or shell and has the still further advantage of weijhins less than half that of the o!d type solid mast now i:. use. With this test concluded. Rear Admiral Mason, with his face beaming with gratification, shout ad the order to cease firing— that the test waa ended. The Arkansas was ordered back to the Norfolk yard and the Florida also was taken there to be fitted with a. specially built bulkhead, teta which a Whitehead torpedo is to be Bred within, ten days, to demonstrate whether or not bulk heads of the new type may not be pr^3tabl/ used to protect the hulls of the ship?.
