Governor Addresses 25,000 Persons
• m Scries of East Side
I am perfectly satisfied with the
situation and I am confident that
we shall have a notable victory.
ghes's message sfter his
With a whirlwind dash in an automobile
around Manhattan and The Bronx. Governor
Hughes wound up his campaign for re-election
last night, speaking at seven meetings in lo
calities where he had not spoken previously in
the campaign. He addressed at the various
places at least twenty-five thousand persons.
Besrinnins: at 215 th street, the Governor worked
his way downtown, ending his night's speeches
at Hamilton Fish Park, on the lower East Side.
All along the route the Governor awakened
jrreat enthusiasm, and the impression be created
m his audiences by his clean-cut declaration of
principle* and presentation of his record gave
ro Indication of the Chanler landslide which
rptimistic Democrats are predicting in greater
N>t " York.
Indeed, the reception accorded to him at Bo
hemian Hall, in East 7?>i street, and ever, more
notably those at Clinton Hall and Hamilton
Fish Park, on the lower East Side, showed that
the Governor had a strong hold on the esteem
and affections of the plain people of foreign
birth, as well as of the upstate farmers.
His speeches, none of which was longer than
fifteen minutes, were pungent, concise account
ings of his two years of office and crisp pledges
to continue along the ?ame line. He handled the
latest campaign tactics of his opponents without
"It's en absolute lie!" he declared of a state
ment printed yesterday, quoting his father as
advising all Christians to vote for the Governor
and to cut the Republican ticket.
"The campaign in opposition to us is a re
markable one," he said again. "It began in gen
eralities, continued in puerilities nd now ap
pears to have ar. attack of desperation."
Discussing the *Taft and Chanler" proposition
put forward by many of his enemies, he wanted
to know whose money was paying for that cam
»,--■.•- money of those willing to stand
up and be counted." he declared, and added:
"That's the kind of a split ticket to go with
t ppiit conscience." . ■■ ;
Governor Hughes, accompanied by Congress
man Parsons. Colonel Treadwell. his military
tecretary. end John B. Boyle, 1 ram of the
speakers' bur^-su of the Republican County Com
mittee, who was in general charge of the meet-
Ings, left the Hotel Astor at 6:45 p. m.
There, was a long run up Broadway and Sev
enth avenue, where in the brilliantly lighted
streets many of the pedestrians caught sight of
the Governor in his closed car and cheered for
him. Hip first meeting was at 215< street and
"White Plains Road. A glsre .if red fire marked
the meeting place long before the automobiles
reached it. and a roar of cheering sounded and
r°sr>und*Mj -while the Governor was elbowing; his
way through the throng to the platform from
which he was tn speak. It was a very enthusi
astic throng, which caught up all the Governor's
arguments and cheered them.
"If I am re-elected," said the Governor early
in the Fpeech. and got no further for a minute
berauso of the yells and assurances of the people
that he would be. beyond any doubt.
In th!s speech the Governor paid particular
attention to the transit situation.
"I am particularly interested in ail that per
tains to New York City." he said, and declared
that he would devote his energies to seeing that
t«etter transit facilities were obtained. He said
he disapproved the bill presented to the Legis
lature last year amending the rapid transit law
because it would have postponed this condition
Instead of expediting it.
"We want new transit farilitiep established
promptly and fairly on •- sound basis." said the.
Governor, "not a football speculation. This
question ie going to be solved as quickly as It
can be done, and I don't think we have lost ary
time about it."
At this meeting also the Governor declared
that much misapprehension existed about his
position on the question of assessing taxes on
religious and benevolent institutions, and that
eftorts had been made to show that he had dis
criminated against one faith.
"If I stand for anything." he said. "it is equal
treatment of all before the law. They have
abused atid caricatured me. Against all this I
appeal to my record. There hi nothing in the
Governorship— high as is that office— if I have to
win it in that way. I want to be the Governor
of s.l! or not be Governor at ai4." He paid he
rtoo<3 for a general law on the subject of taxing
these institutions, but would approve special
legislation cancelling assessments where it
could b*> showed that hardship had b«»en worked.

yelling wildly when the Governor appeared, and
it was some two minutes before he could make
himself heard at all. Even then the enthusiasm
broke ... a , interval*, and it bubbled unre
strainedly when he declared:
"I am willing to stand before the citizens of
tM« Plate for any art of mine. I do not pro
fess, the Lord know?, to be Infallible, but I do
try to be square and do the right thing by all."
The Governor was in ■■■ voice, and the cord

fervid ape*-, from the very first sentence. Said

the soldiers, who were called out to patrol the
business district. One Chinese who offered

ears of a so-called "traitor" 515, and, should
he be thrown into jail, to see th/it he is held
up to the nijMle as a martyr and to pay him

Company Places Tunnel Electrifica
tion Order After Being Assured
of Election Outcome.
Having become convinced that the election rf
Taft was assured, the Pennsylvania Railroad
closed yesterday a ?">.< H #).< K H t . ontract with the
Westing-house Electric and Manufacturing Com
pany, df- Pittsburgh This contract is for the
electrification of the tunnels of the Pennsyl
vania •rhiCß run from New Jr-s^v to L"ng Isl
and city and the exteastoa af electrical opera
tion on the Long: Island Raiim,id. which is con
trolled by the Pennsylvania. The contract has
been hanging lire, as the directors dtd not feel
that it would be wise to go ahead and lay out
so much money until they were assured that
business stability would not be upset, as they
believed would be the case if Mr. Bryan should
be elected.
The official? of the Pennsylvania road hay»
bepn devoting considerable t -.me in the lawt
three years to a study of the requirement-, of
the tormina!, and the Weathaghoase eosapeny
has already built several elect! ld locomotives
which have been subjected to elaborate tests
under the direction of George (iibhs. chief en
pineer of electric traction of the Pennsylvania
The contract must be com >leted in twenty
months. It will give employment to a daily
average of one thousand men in the works of
the Westinshouse company anil to hundreds at
others In other works which ? jpply material to
that company. The total horsepower of the ap
paratus to be installed win amount to about
two hundred and fifty thousand, a much greater
amount than that Involved in ne electrical sys
tems of either the New Hav»n or New York
Central roads. These roads installed thirfy-flve
electric locomotives apiece. >ut the Pennsyl
vania has ordered one hundrei. besides several
hundred motor cars to be operated on the multi
ple unit pvstem
The ;-e!W was expres=°d ar the offices >f the
"Westinghouse company. No 1* n Broadway. That
the letting of the present contract would have
a far reaching effect with refereace to the in
stallation of other electric systems which have
been held in abeyance pendir.g the decision of
th 0 Pennsyli ania Railroad.
No one concern j a much more interested In
the outcome of the election tran the George A.
Fuller Company 'Plans for future business
on a vast scale awali th» election of Mr. Taft."
said Harry Hae=!°r, assistp.rv to the superin
tendent of th" company. "Should Bryan g^t in
one of our biggest jobs would be lost The
feeling, however, is that Mr. Taft i? certain of
election, and the fact has glvsa a verj enooar
pging outlook. When this is made sure by the
election Itself w« expect araat activity in the
building line. Retrenchment In every direction
would follow the election of Mr B-yan if he
should by any possibility get hi, and the effect
on our business would be moat disastrous."
John Wanamaker foresees in the election of
Taft greater prosperity than the country has
experienced. H» said: "The halt in this busi
ness expansion has been only temporary. No
on- 1 n»pd fear for th° future. It will be found
that no one has h^n serious;;, hurt in the panic.

Bookmakers' Syndicate Tries in Vain
to Make Chattier Favorite Over
Hughes in Speculation.
There was mighty little betting at the Hoff
man House last night. Where in former years
tens of thousands of dollars have been wagered
on the eve of election.only thousands were wag
ered last night, and not many Of those. There
were several wagers of comparatively large size
placed on Taft early in the evening, but the
Bryan money soon became exhausted, and after
8 o'clock no more could be found.
There was a lot of Chanler money dribbled
out in small lots to influence the betting in favor
of the Democratic candidate. It was reported
that this money had been raised by a syndicate
of bookmakers, who saw a last chance possibly
of influencing a few votes In favor of Chanler
by forcing him into the position of favorite. In
this the trick failed, but It did change the odds
from 10 to 7 on Hughes, which had prevailed
for several days, to IC to 8 and 10 to 9. In some
cases bets at even money were made.
The odds fluctuated SO rapidly that it was a
clear indication that no stable basis had been
fixed, and that most of the bets were put out
for the sake of Influencing the situation. If pos
sible. For instance, there was one bet of $B*soo
to $1,006 on Taft at 6^ to 1. Then there was a
report that a Bryan man had wagered $2,000 to
$7,<M>O that Bryan would win. which would be
Ito S l^. and another report of a Bryan bet of
$800 to $3,000, at odds of 4 to 15; but Just after
this, and in the sam" group into which this re
port had been brought, a man bet $3,000 to ?Q«X)
on Taft. at odds of 5 to 1. Later, when a man
with Taft money went looking for Bryan back
ers, he was told that the odds were L.OHO.AUO
to 1, which meant that there was no Bryan
money at any price.
In the afternoon "Pop" Freeman, the picture
man, who has been all over the country supply
ing campaign committees with transparencies,
walked into the Hoffman House with a small
bale of $1,000 bills. He said he was willing to
bet anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000 that Taft
would have at least 2SO electoral votes Certain
men who had been offering Bryan money at once
faded ■■'. ay Then be offered to bet even money
that Tafi would carry Indiana. No takers. As
a last desperate attempt to get a little Bryan
coin he offered even money that Tafr would
'carry New York, Indiana and Ohio, but It was
no use.
To show how the odds fluctuated, here are
some of the bets hi the order they were made
on Hughes: $2,000 to $1,809, $1,000 to $900, two
of $1,000 even, $500 to $40<\
There was a bet of $10,000 even that < 'hanler
would not get 20,000 plurality in Brooklyn, which
was the largest wager of the evening. Then a
man gave $500 to $400 that Chanler would not
get 15,000 in Brooklyn.
Fred H. Brooks, who four years aco handled
$400,000 in bets, decided after consulting legal
authority that election betting was illegal He
announced in Wall Street some days ago that he
would not handle any money, and brokerage
houses following his lead refused to take money.
Last night at the Hoffman House he was in
dignant when he saw the small betting going
on without any attempts to atop it.
"After this is all over," he declared, "I am
going to see that this law is enforced or re
pealed. I have upheld the law and lost thou
sands of liars in commissions. This year I
have refused some $200,000. It is not fair."
A fund of $20,000 Chanler money was taken
into Wall Street yesterday, the first consider
able amount seen In this campaign, and was
offered by a leading brokerage house through
Its curb representative, being speedily co%ered
by Hughes support rs at 10 to S. most of the
bets being $1,000 to $800.
A bet of 12,754 ' IS 00 Taft was reported
on the curb. Al the t I. >se> the prevailing .>.M.~

[By Tel^eraph to Tta« Tribune 1
Pittsburg. Nov. 2. — A railroad ticket issued in
ISB9 was tendered by a passenger to the con
ductor of a Pennsylvania Railroad train leaving
Pittshurg for the East last night. The ticket
was issued by the Louisville & Lexington (or
Mexican) Railroad, and read: "Good for one
first class passage between Cincinnati and
Washington. D. C." It was so worn with age
that difficulty was experienced in deciphering
the name of the railroad.
The conductor telegraphed to the superin
tendent of passenger transportation at Phila
delphia for instructions, and was advised to
honor the ticket which when turned over to the
company will be placed In a frame as a relic.

Youicstown^ Ohio. Nov. «— Th« last wird ta
his campaign has been spoken by William H.
Taft, and he is now speeding toward Cincinnati
to cast his vote to-morrow.
Had he been a conquering hero, returning
from a lon^ and successful military carapaisa
the people of his state couM hay* given him no
warmer or more enthusiastic welcome than that
he has received at Cleveland and Tonuaslusisj
and smaller Ohio towns to-day. The route I — i
the station at Cleveland to the armory. whsra
he spoke, was lined witn cheering thousands.
Every window along the line of march was flltedl
by applauding men and wirserj. and marcaiasj
clubs with flags and banners waving escorted
him •■• his way. At the armory .r-vaai of
ten thousand persona packed the edifice and
applauded every sentiment he expressed, follow.
ing a most enthusiastic reception when be en
tered th*- hall. Ob leaving the armory he •"■.-'
an overflow meeting 1 of over five thousand per*
sons tn the street, which. aa addressed briefly
from his automobile.
At Toungstown. the ■ — a which marked tlx»
opening of th» campaign, whers Governor
Hughes received so great a welcome, were •»
peated with even more enthusiasm. A parada
with thousands of men in line ■»*« reviewed by
Mr. Taft as soon a-=» h» reached the city. Many
of the clubs surpassed the average BjBJCsl regi
ment in the excellence of their discipline and
the precision of their manoeuvres. After dinner
Mr. Taft made th<= final speech cf the campaign
to a great audience, ami he was escorted to the
train which is taking him to Cincinnati by as
almost hysterically enthusiastic multituiie.
Wan at appeared or. the Park Theatre staaa
he faced an audience friendly sat of an in
quiring turn of mind. Several persons called to
him before he began his speech:
"What about the full dinner pail?"
"I am going to talk to you to-nish:.'* said Mr.
Taft. "about the reasons laboring men should)
support the ticket, and my talk will cover the
question of the full dinner nail."
He then made a tariff argument, showing that
protection of American manufacturers pro
tected also the men who worked for the manu
facturers against the pauper labor of Europe.
When he had finished that part of the speech,
some persons in the audience still insisted that
the "full dinner pail" question had not been an
swered, and Mr. Taft ?aid:
"All right. I will answer you.'"
He then spoke of the recent panic, and saM
that if laboring men wished to fill the dinner
pall which had been depleted by the recent de
press.on they would have to choose between
himself, as representing the party which had
legislated for both labor ar.d capital, and Mr.
Bryan, who had only theorized on those sub
From this argument Mr Taft went to his own
labor record, and his aggressiveness and inde
pendence won the applause of the audience. H*
made practically the same speech later at th*
Grand Opera House.
When Mr. Taft ended that address to-nl«ht
he had ma 1 41S speeches in forty-one dars. the
first address of the tour havir.s been mad? at
George Ade's farm In Indiana on September 23.
He said that he would not make any- predic
tion of h!s own. but he believed Chairman
Hitchcock was conservative In his estimate «C
3*J."> electoral votes for the Republican ticket.
The situation tn Ohio has improved grreatly
since Mr. Taft last spoke here, an' it is now
regarded on all sides as only a question of thoa
sands in the majority which the stat4 will roll
up for Taft and Sherman. It is believed that
the majority for the national ticket will con
siderably exceed that for Governor Harris.
Mr. Taft made his first speech of the day at
Dunkirk. N. T.. where a raw audience had
gathered at the station. He devoted th* few
minutes at his disposal chiefly la the subject of
lal-or. speaking in part as follows:
I don't know whether you are as glad that to
morrow is Ei?<-t!<in Day as I am. If you are.
you are. very happy. I am delighted to. stand
before an audience at Dunkirk, the important
town of. Western New York, and especially to
stand before an audience of workingmen. to
assure them that there are many reasons way
tht-y should vote the Republican ticket, and if
that ticket Is successful, as I hive no doubt it
rt ill be. then we will have nothin* to *'-•« tn
the victory. Rr»t. becaiwe it will preserve the
protective system; s«»<-ond. because it !s not a
menace to prosperity, and prosperity wt'! return
as we had k two years ago for a period of ten
years! and. third, because the Republican party
has shown itself In th- past to be a friend of
the workingman. and It will do so in the future.
I have b**»>n attacked as unfair to labor, t
wish I could stop and demonstrate to you t!tat
of all the public men you know there are v«ry
few who have d«>n-» more in the Interest of
labor than I have, and I want it understood
that if I am ejected the fact that Mr. Gompers
had attempted to deliver ov-r the labor vote tr>
the Democratic party and has attacked me bit
terly and with others r\as done- m* injustice will
not deprive me cf the interest I fWt In tabor in
its attempt to get to higher thins*, and tt will
give me the utmost pleasure t.> follow along tn
the path of Theodora Rnoseve't. as I haye been
associated with him in the last f^ur years, to
bring to the attention of Congress and by ex
ecutive measures to put labor on an equality
with every other class in the community. If
I understand the position of labor, they don't a*a
to be put at an advantage. They *'< a squar*
dfal — hi be put on a level. The Republican
party In the last t*n years has passed ten «tat
utes and the Democratic party not a sin3le Has
in the interest of labor. Paaai the»? ciretna
stances I ask you t» consider carefully th* ques
tion whether you wish tr» out in the Democratic
party, with its recrd and its* promises unfal
