President and Other Republican
Leaders Will Make Draft.
Washington. May 27.— At least a tentative draft
of the Republican national platform will be pre
pared in Washington. Already arrangements are
iraking for conferences on the subject. The like
lihood is that the conferences will be held here
i.ext week, and that by the time the delegates
to the comention turn their faces toward Chicago

into shape and tacked away in the Inside pocket of
a prospective member of the committee on reso

Among the platform oonferrees will be Presi

Taffs preliminary campaign, is in Washington to
day conferring with Mr. Taft. He did not come
to the capital prhnartty to discuss the platform wMb
the Secretary, but on business of a different charac
t<r. It is expected that Wade H. Kills, Attorney
Genera! of Ohio, who is one of the detegates-at
larg« from that state, will have a part In the
preparation of the platform. He drew the tariff
revision plank of the platform adopted by the
Republicans of Ohio at their state convention, and
11 is expected that a somewhat similar declaration
respecting the tariff will be adopted at < "hi. -ago.
particularly if the forces «>f Secretary Taft should
control the convention. Beyond informal discus

Cotton Exchange Opposition Ticket Not a

Mr. Brennecke said that the naming of an op

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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
"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

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. Th» former Is th« bailiwick of -Little
Tim" Sullivan and the latter the domain of
"Florrie" Sullivan. The Hearst gain, or th* Mc-
Clellan loss, by the recount was twelve votes in
"LIUI* Tim's" district and fifteen votes in
"Florrie'f "
When John T. Doollng. president of tho Board
of Elections, advanced to unlock th« first "box
Eugene Lamb Richards, personal counsel for Mayor
McCletlan, asked thai he be permitted to show
the jury that the padlock was of a common sort,
and that It as well as the key could be duplicate^
easily. The court had the box held up to the view
of the twelve good men and true who sat like
martyrs through the. long, hot session. Mr. Rich
ards also pointed out that the slip of paper over
the slot In the box was loose, and could be re
moved and replaced without any trouble. Th" same
course was pursued In the opening of the second
Each side In the contest was represented by a
clerk, who lifted out the ballots. These were ex
amined, and if a dispute arose the ballot was shown
to Justice Lambert, who passed on It. The first
box had 373 ballots, and the official count on Elec
tion Day had been: 3*2 for McClellan: "1 for Hearst;
5 for Ivlns. and 1 for I>>e. By the corrected count
In court the standing was changed as follows: Me-
Clellan. 330. as against 312 on the official count;
Hearst. 31. is on the official count; Ivlns. 4. as
against "> on the official count; L*». I. as on th»
official count: one blank for office of Mayor; on»
entire blank: eleven void.
The second box contained a total of XX, m -■■-'-
ing to the Election Day flouring, distributed as fol
lows: 163 for MeClellan; 151 for Hearst; 40 tor Ivnw;
9 for Lee: 4 for the Socialist Labor Party, and I
blank. A not- left in the box by th* election in
spectors certified that they had put back M bal
lots, of which I were void and 1 protested. The
total in the court cntint yesterday remained at
376. distributed among the candidates a* follow?:
McClellan. 15*, as against M in the official count;
Hearst. IC7. as against 133 in the official count;
Tvins. 23, as against 40 In the official count. The
votes of the other candidates remained the same;
the one blank was sustained, and there war. found
to be one ballot which was declared to be void.
It was said after adjournment that Justice Lam
