PARSONS WOJI'T QUIT FIGHT 'AGAINST LEADERS. Tell* Senator Raines to Take Son's Same Off Tammany Payroll. Herbert Par^onns. president of the Republican County Committee, reasserted yesterday his deter mlnntlon to fight to a finish the leader* in the Republican organization^ both in Washington and iv Albany, who lxst year, throupb a deal with Tammany, he pays, the defeat of his WIIf aimed at the cutlinp down of the fraudulent vote cast herr by Tammany Hall. He said, in replying to Senator Rainess denial of any deal, that when the name of Charles T. Raines. Ms «nn. was taken off the Tammany payrolls. Sen ator Raines would lx- la a position to phow his sin cerity for honest elections In this city. 3lr! Parsons said that when State Chairman W«M.druff was asked last spring to lend a hand In petting tl.romrh the election lulls he did what he .-ould to assist. The county rommii!^ president «^timated tliat probably fifty thousand fraudulent votes \v«-re cart at every mayoralty election here, and he is deter mined to cut this number down to a nominal figure He declined to name the men concerned in the Ptate Chairman Woodruff wh«n asked about the rfforts of certain leader* against the election bills "I h*ked George R. Malby and William L. Ward nbcut the defeat of the bills, and they toKl me that It «'v due to natural cause?— because the bills *vere cumbersome." Representative Parsons denied the statement that !w had voted against the Cannon rules. He said he had voted againm the adoption of the previous question, preceding the vote on the rules, becau.-w he beheved there should be nmre time for the dis cussion of |iroj>os.d amendments. His position was interpreted by Si«-aker Cannon and Representative Dwight, the Republican whip, as an act of hostility toward the Speaker and the majority. WILLING TO FIGHT TEARS. "I've sj>ent ten years trying to stop fraudulent voting in this city." said Mr. Parsons yesterday, "and I'm going to spend the rest of my life at it. if necessary. I have always believed that any man armed with the evidence could, if he kept at it. X»ut laws on the statute books which would prac tically do away with fraudulent voting in this city, and l" believe 1 can do it. It may take a f»w years, but it will come to pas*. .nd I'll - ■ "We- not name th*- parties in the deal?" was suggested. "Not at this time." said Mr. Parsons. TELLS HOW BILL? WERE KILLED. The election bills referred to were drafted by Edward R. Finch, chairman of the law committee of the Republican County Committee. Senator George B. Ajmew l.ad charge of them In the Sen ate and AssemUysaan Ward in the lower house. The bills were passed in the Assembly, but were killed In the Senate. Senator Apifw m relating ytrterday the history of the killing of tbe bills said: "1 conferred with Itaine* several i:mes about the bills, and raaOe gome changes in them. All that took time.

After addressing for thirty minutes an audience that filled the auditorium of Calvary Methodist Episcopal Church, at 129 th street and Seventh ave nue, last night. General Theodore Bingham fairly shout< "I've hern told this is the first gun in this cam paign, and I'm proud to fire it. 1 want to sum up now. You ask me what is to be done. I idl you in a word.

The speaker had been introduced by Sidney E.

He may be unknown, but the office sought the man. How about the other looking for a job? I have known Bantu about thirty years He was in ray class at Yale, and so was "Bob" Cook and Hadley. Now. if 1 have your confidence, take my word for a few facts. Ilannard is a discreet man, trained as a lawyer, trusted by great Inter ests. He is !it for Mayor because they can't fool him. Bannard is anle to discuss your great finan cial questions Things told about bis private life are not true. They say he is cold. Bannard has an attractive personality. Go down and see him, and you'll find it's so. He is a deliberative man. When he give* advice people take it.

Haffen temporar ily halted Charles K. Murphy's "chloroforming act yesterday. By easy stages the process r.f "putting Louie out at the way painlessly" has been going ahead for the last ten (leys. Haffen Btopped the same yesterday by definitely announcing that he would be an Independent can didate for President of The Bronx. He will make "home rule" the issue, and his friends yesterday began the circulation of nominating petitions. The attempted chloroformlnK of Haffen began soon after his removal by the Governor a few weeks age. The district leaden of The Bronx got together to parcel out Mr. Haffen's official shoe*. John P. Murray. llaffen'.^ Commissioner of Public Works, was finally agreed on to fill the unexpired term, but not because the district leaders wanted him. The leader: in The Bronx appealed to Murphy, and the boss told them to go ahead and fight it out among themselves. They proceeded to do it with chloroform. Arthur H. Murphy, owner of three liquor stores, wanted the borough presidency, but his business was a handicap. Murphy sold hi* stores last week to one of bis bartenders, and stood forth in the spot light as a retired business man, and a (it subject for the votes of the people. Mr. Haffen smfit the chloroform and "kicked." Not getting any satisfaction in Jlth street, he decided to run as an independent candi date, bo as to get *■. vindication. "1 will make my campaign on home rule." said the ex-Borough President yesterday. "I have al ways fought for tin. interests of The Bronx, and I will continue to do so to the best of my ability. Home rule and conjjul of local affairs are what the people want in this borough." "Will .Mr. Haffen arop his efforts for an inde pendent nomination should Tammany Hal] renomi nate him?" was asked of Thomas T. TTren, one of Uaffen'a friends. "I think Mr. Haffi-n is determined to run on an Independent ticket any way," he replied. "He wants vindication?" "He d Mr. Urea and William P. A. Kurt, another Haffen supporter, have started the work of getting, tv.o thousand names to the petition for Mr. Huff on at their office. No. 3025 Third avenue. MVRPUY GUARDS SLATE.

William M.

M Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Yon will please find inclosed copies of ar ticle* which appeared in lant week's issue of "The Lyons Republican" on the political situation In Wayne County. lam sending you these articles for your enlightenment. Th« New-York Tribune, which was once regarded as a clean, conservative, intelli gent and reliable newspaper, of late has w-emed to change Its character somewhat und has been in dulging In the sensational misrepresentation and falsehoods characteristic of the yellow Journals of our day. For instance, a few months ago there appeared an editorial in The New-York Tribune in which it was alleged tliat the Republican conven ii US' in this county were "snap conventions," and that they were illegally called. No greater false hood has been published in the state during the last ten years. Both of the conventions were called regularly and legally, every committee-man Joining In the call, and the. notice was given the same as it has been given the last fifteen or twenty years, and the Assembly convention was called in the eatne manner, two of the three commltteemen joining In the call. Both conventions were called this year one month later than they were last year, and the Assembly convention, at which Mr. Greenwood was nominated, was called one month later than the con vention which nominated Mr. Hamn last ami So much for this. You have also repeatedly stated that Mr. Ilamm declined a ronomination and was not a candidate. This was another falsehood. Mr. Hamn announced bis candidacy in the local Lyons paper, which Is his organ : the two Palmyra papers also announced his candidacy, and after our Lyons caucus was called in Mr. Hamn'a own town he canvassed for dele gates two days, and, failing to g"t any support whatever, he was obliged to "throw up the apong«*" and withdraw from the field. He then put in a can didate for member of Assembly in trie town of Savannah agaiust Greenwood, and he turned out to be a reel nomination candidate. The. Republican organization in Savannah put no candidate in against him, but opposed his having the delegates. In the primary Mr. Boule, the direct nomination candidate, made a speech In which he uaid he was for direct nominations and for Governor Hughes and all his policies', and as a result of his effort he was turned down In the primary by a vote of three to one. and secured only thirty-four votes in the whole town. I noticed an editorial in your paper last we*-k entitled "A Political Tragedy." which abounds in the usual amount of misrepresentation and false hoods, and every Republican in this county knows them to be such. Inasmuch as you used my name in connection with the editorial, I feel it my duty to enlighten you aa to the situation in Warn* County, and I thlnlt I am as close to the situation and know as much itbout it as an editor nearly one thousand miles away. I do not know where you got your information, neither do I care, hut I do know that your Information is misinformation. ■When I was in Albany during the Keisey trial one of the Tribune representatives told me that he was instructed to suppress everything favorable to Kelsey and magnify everything against him. This seems to be your method of conducting a news paper in advocacy of the socialistic direct nomina tions. In other words. The Tribune plants Its feet on a dishonest and immoral basis and then yells l reform. la it any wonder that the daily papers are fast losing the confidence of 'he people anil their influence with the public when they are con ducted in this ..inner? I have, therefore, great sympathy for the editor of The New- York Tribune. For many years The Tribune has b««en an intelli gent, conservative and reliable exponent of en lightened Republican principles and policies, but all of a sudden it has swallowed the socialistic direct nominations bill, first prescribed by "Dr." William Randolph Hearst, and it is not to be won dered at that the editor of The Tribune is uncom fortable. It would be Interesting if you would have the courtesy to republish your editorial on "A Political Tragedy" in parallel columns with "The Political Tragedy" I am Inclosing you. Your editorial has literary finish, but is destitute of facts and truth. My editorial has no literary finish, but it ha- abun dant facts and truth. Everybody here knows that ] have stated in the Inclosed article;* the real situa tion in Wayne County, and I live so near to the people and so close to them that I cannot afford to indulge In misrepresentations and falsehoods, like an editor nearly one thousand miles away. H might Interest you to know thai I believe in direct primaries, and that 1 believe that we now have . reel primaries, and have hail ever since the foundation of this Republic. 1 know of no other kir.iis of primaries but direct primaries We had them in this county this year, and the organiza tion in the direct primaries la Wayne County car ried fourteen of the fifteen towns, and Mr. Hamn, as a direct nomination advocate, had four blank votes in the Assembly convention, he bein; one of the blanks, l realise that the ordinary, ignorant advocate of direct nominations does not know the difference between "direct primaries" ami "direct primary nominations." l>irect primary is one thisi and direct nomination is another, i know of no one who is opposed to direct primaries, but I be lieve that a large majority of the Republicans in the state are opposed to the Hearst socialistic scheme Of direct nominations.

So when we deal with the makers of Paris needlework, we are able to lay before them models suitable for American women, and made up to American measurement, and yet with all the witchery and daintiness of Paris. Nearly every stitch in every garment in the French room has been made by the deft fingers of a French needle-woman. Real lace, hand-embroidery and fine plaits are marvelously combined in chemises, drawers, corset covers, combinations and petticoats. Exquisite French Blouses The charm of one blouse may be its hand-drawn plaits. Another may be the black satin stock and cuffs on a dainty tailored white linen blouse, or small or exaggerated frills down the front of an other. Jersey Top Petticoats that have silk plaid, messaline and taffeta flounces are very strong tor this season.
