Tells Visitors People Won't Stand for Exploitation. [By Telegraph to Th* Tribtsre.] Albany. Feb. 2.— ln a speech to a dele gation of Northern New Yorker?, including prominent lumbermen and paper mill own er?, who called on bin to-day. Governor Hughes cxpre^ed the opinion forcibly that while the state constitution should be amended to permit water storage, it BiMM be done in such fashion that there could bo i?o exploitation of private interests. . "Any constitutional amendment, any Mil or measure for this purporc, will bo scruti nized to the last syllable and punctuation mark to see that there is no joker in it, that there, is nothing tffat can be twisted against the public interest in it," said the Governor. He atM raised the query whether, if the state decided to go into the development of its water powers and thus into the busines of celling power, it should be done through the existing Water Sup ply Commission or some other instrumen tality would be necessary. The Governor's visitors were a delega tion of business men from Jefferson, Fank 11 n. St. Lawrence and "Warren counties, who called on him, lea by Senators Cobb and Emerfon. to ask that a Northern New Yorker he appointed to the Water Supply Commission to succeed Ernst J. Lfderl^, jecently appointed Health Commissioner of New York. No candidate's name was men tioned, but it is understood that most of the men there favored E. N. Smith, a law yer, of Watcrtown. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. After the purpose of the visit had been set forth by Senator Cobb and others, the Governor expressed his great interest in the proper regulation of the flow of the. state's Stft&xns and the water storage piojee' He «aM he had set forth in his annual message what he considered funda ; mental principles on thir. ' matter.' 'The Water Supply Commission had been mak ing a careful investigation of the water storage and power development question under the terms of the Fuller till, and had shown a full appreciation of the important trust confided to i*. He continued: Now this is a matter which relates to the prosperity cf the entire state., Noth ing that will make the northern counties of the state Industrially as efficient as they should b* can be ignored in consider- Ing the prosperity of the State of New York. When I say that this relates to the prosperity of the. state, and the entire state, I say it in the sense that we want in this state the fullest development of Industrial energy. "We want to get all the power there is conserved, and our com munities to have all the business that the people of the state can conduct, and every opportunity for talent and work that in genuity and our natural resources, properly conserved and Ueveloped. can provide. No one ho understands the possibilities of the future of this state can look with other than th" greatest interest upon this mat ter which has engaged your attention and has been the subject of the studies of the Water Supply Commission. Now I believe this can be done without any sacrifice of the. Interests of the state In its forests. I believe that this can be done with due regard to those interests which I fill yield to no man in the state in «ny desire to conserve and protect. But If the water powers of this state, consider ing their relation to the streams that, rise in our forest preserve, are to be developed. those who are interested in promoting tbeir development must make it understood to all the people of the state that they are Dot threatening: the interests of the state hi our forest?, or trying to give a private grip on any state property. That must be understood and put beyond, peradventurft. or this movement will not go on, no matter how Interest* you are in it In Northern N»-«- York, or how important the develop ment of the water powers .may be. The sentiment of the state is so strong, and I believe so final, wit!; regard to the protection of the ■ forests, that th- people will not allow any part of them for water F»or&ce purposes to pass into -private hands. The result will be that any consti tutional amendment, any bill or measure for this purpose, will b> scrutini2<sd to th« last syllabic and punctuation mark to see that there is no joker in it. that there Is nothing that can be twisted against the public interest in it. and the public gen erally throughout the -stale will demand that it be exactly what it professes to be, a plan in the Interests of the entire state. PEOPLE WON'T STAND FOR IT. Now I believe that if what you want in the northern country. I believe it is a sentiment- that- you represent as much as people from other parts of the state.. I emphasize hat 1 Have said simply so that If there is lingering anywhere in the minds of some that In that wav, or any other, they can cet hold of forest property and establish storage reservoirs for their own purposes, they had better get rid of it if they want the water powers developed. They will never get ahead, in that way. It doejn't make any difference what you or I may say about It, the people won't stand for it. ' : On the other hand, if it becomes thor oughly understood that it is best, and that plans more comprehensive than any private . Interest could devise, fairer «nd more pro tective than private Interests could be trusted to devise, can be carried out. and that we shaH have the powers developed under state control, to be held in state ownership, and to be leased or dealt with only ■.■»••■ fair condition.-, so that Indus try rill be free In this state, while at. the .-on)- time it will progress, then I think public sentiment will rapidly develop be l'in«i this movement. Of course, it must be assumed that any plans that will be made will make possible the preservation, ■■• Bimpiy under state control, but for their essential purpose, of our forest lands. Hut so Car as 1 have studied this question, H set:ms to in- a very easy matter If we go at it in the, right way. to ,jr. this with out saeririoiiio' any interest in the forests, bu(, on the contrary, protecting them. Now, having these plans, having these general ideas about the line of procedure, Of course v.c have brought to our attention the agency that should he adopted. 1 have nothing to say 00 that point that is nt all definite. I merely suggest that up 10 this tin-"- we have been usifl?: in agency orig inally create'! for another purpose. The Water Supply Commission was created originally Without these important plans In view, and these later matters are so exeat and transcending in importance that the} - ':.-■■■ obscure the original purpose of the commission. COMMISSION HAS DONE ITS WORK. That commission has done its work, and I doubt very much whether, if you bad a commission of men who were "ail ro.-M denis of the northern counties, you cou d have got up very much better studies so far as the commission has been able to go. They have approached it from the right- point ef«-view and done a great deal" of successful work, and deserve high credit But the Question Is now. looking forward to the 'actual entry upon some of these Un }>ortaiir^i>!ans of development, what agency should be adopted in order that we may g«o forwatd'wlta them Whether we should continue the commission In this line; whether thai should be altered; how a proper Instrument of state activity should v.< created, are subjects which you. as busiu< > >». .I.';. .1- well *- members of the Legislature, will carefully consider. If. however. It comes to the point of dealing with the commission as it is now— and I am not prepared 10 ay one thing or the other upon lt,--rxoept that it is only f;<!r to *ay that •'<•■ .Question la now presented differently than heretofore— then I am going to take into consideration the Interests of th< entire ?>tate, not exoept tnc Northern New York, in determining what Is the b*«* thing to do.

New York, to .1 point opposite on the New Jersey shore at the foot of the palisades. This will require a main span not exceeding 1,400 feet In length. One ad vantage pointed out is that it will connect the trolley system of The Bronx with that of New Jersey and connect the New York i.-iirk system v.ith tin new Palisades Park.

Members of the special legislative committee which investigated direct primary conditions in other states held a meeting this evening with ex- Judge Knapf., counsel, to prepare their report to the Legislature. After a three hours 1 s«8- Fior.. Senator Meade. the chairman, raid the work was uncompleted and would be continued at another sefs-ioTi. This report, when completed, will declare jigninet direct primaries, though it is ber lieted that the. language of that declaration will not he so vigorous as it might have been before the. Democrat?

This was arranged by states, the testimony for and asainst the direct primary it. each state being sura marized with notes regarding the salient features of the laws. This material the committee took up for analysis, and then began to weld it into a report. Th* word ing of that document proved to difficult a task that what had been expected to be a short gesslon lengthened greatly, and finally made necessary other session?. Brought on by a resolution offered by Senator Grady to have one thousand extra copies of the Democratic Leagues direct primary bill printed, a brisk debate over -the direct primary issue enlivened to-day's Nation of the Senate. Incidentally Sen ator Grady . committed the Democratic legislators to ths support of his measure, and admitted that th* time had come when the general public was demanding reforms along that line: The gist of It all was expressed by Sen ator Davenport in these words: • "The discuFSion this morning is signifi cant in its open revelation of the changed attitude 01 mind all over the state within a year with respect to this great move ment In public life. Senator Grady has had the breadth of mind to change his position because he realized the public demand for direct primary reforms." In presenting- his resolution," Senator Grady said he had read that his introduc tion of this bill had occasioned much mirth, although he hadn't observed.it ••I hop© I may be taken seriously v.hen even this question- come? up," .he contin ued. "This measure, which comes from the Democratic League, represents the posi tion of the minority party and its repre sentatives in the Legislature on the ques tion of direct primaries. We recognise, that there are times when th* fullest and fair* e«t expression of public sentiment is ad visable, and believe it has been provided for in this system of direct primaries.

Mr. Dana at tempted to introduce t;ie amendment, which was in the form of a concurrent I resolution, from the floor at to-day's ses ! sion, but objection was made by two Dem- I ocratic members.

"This measure." he. said, "will make the > Governor responsible for the administra i tion, and will give greater centralization of ;' responsibility. It will shorten the ballot ! and more simply bring to vote the issue I between the parties." He expressed the belief that the officials J to be mads appointive are now selected principally for geographical reasons, and that the voter desires to vote by party and then hold the party responsible for an efficient government through the Governor.

Having print ed this matter only once, it was seeking. according to th" view of the state officers. to be paid it) Hi. under separate heads, for this same work. Ths Secretary of State first certified each of these bills, liter discovering that they covered the same work. As only one print ing of the general lawshad been made, he vitlfdrew his certification of the bill for printing the general laws under designation as the official paper in Albany County. At that time ?700 had been paid on this bill, so that sum was deducted from the bill ren dered for printing all the laws as a state paper. . . . - In asking for a. mandamus compelling pajment of this bill for printing the laws under designation as the county paper. "The Journal" made no claim tba.t the work for which the bill was rendered had not been paid for wiaia the state paid the bill rendered for printing all the laws as a state paper. Therefore, the question at law became whether the paper was entitled to br paid twice, being designated ao a state and a county paper, for printing done only once. This situation could arise only In Albany County, where the state paper must be printed. It was found that there was nothing In the statutes with a direct bear ing on it. Mr. Letchworth therefore based his arguments on the contract law, main taining that under- this the Barnes paper was not entitled to be paid twice. He ar gued that having contracted, as a state paper, to print all the laws, as a county paper, under contract to print the genera! laws of the state in Albany County, it was doing only what it was required to do by its contracts as a state paper. He con tended that it was a settled principle of law that a promise to do or the actual doing of an act which- a person already is under contractual obligation to do fur nishes no consideration for a contract. Also Mr. Letchworth made the point that the application for mandamus should be de nied as a matter of public policy. He held that -it. was clear that the state should not be required to pay tv.ice for work dons only once. The Albany County Board of Supervisors already has paid some $50 for the publica tion in Albany County of the special laws affecting the county— also required to be printed in "The Journal" as the s-tate paper, and paid for by the state In the bis general bill.
