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

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.
"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.

"Not at this time." said Mr. Parsons.
The election bills referred to were drafted by

The bills were passed in the Assembly, but were

Tells Big Audience to Elect Ban
nard—Hot Shot for Tammany.
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
"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. Elect Bannard Mayor! Y...i know
Tammany better than i do. AU the world knows
the Bynonyme for Tammany. ?<> if Tammany wants
Gaynor for Mayor, they want Gaynor for Tam
many. But if be can assume two characters. I can
take one and tear it to shrede. If he is two
faced. I have a right to take care of one face.
Your District Attorney has mad a few ■■narks
on this subject, and he stands for the truth of
them.' 1
Continuing, General Ringham said:
Do you want a Tammany Mayor again? Haven't
you had enough? <iet down Jo business. « ' nito
sor the common good Just for once. What is
patriotism? Sot a !.ra«s band, ami your sweet
heart proud of your -step and martial air. Do you
Know that it mcaiis giving up thing? \ our
money, your blouJ. your lite. maybe? That is
patriotism: the order is flat dope. Give up your
jealousy. Get ogether: Get together!
The speaker had been introduced by Sidney E.
Millington, the president of the Men's Club of
Cairary Church.- Among other things General
Bingham said:
Now. you hear that Bannard is an unknown
rran. put uji like » straw to be blown down. 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. The fact
that he has been living as a quiet citizen is just
why we "should cet nim out and elect him. Other*
are supposed to be eligible because they are well
One last word and I'll release you. The first
thing to do is n> repnter: the second, lind out
about these candidates. If Bannard isn't elects
1. personally, shall feel that all my hard work
has gone for nothing. Let me know that It was'nt
in vain. $
"Why was The eeneral turned out of office?" was
one of the hot shots fired from the audience when
discussion began after the address. Like a bullet
from a rifle the general tired his answering shot
as he jumped to his feet: '"Ask the Mayor!" he
"les," add'd Mr. MiUlngton. "and I wish the
Mayor were here so that we could ask him.

Friends Will Nominate Him Inde
pendently in The Bronx.
Ex-Borough President Louis F. 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
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,

He Accused The Tribune of Misrepresentation,
but Himself Is Guilty of Suppression.
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
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.
