Five hundred, hackmen. employed by
four of the large cab service companies,

sympathy with the chauffeurs. The
labor Iraders admitted yesterday that
th.v had been Usable to organize the
chauffeurs on the Fifth avenue 'busies

"We tried to pet th'-m together, but

Former Took Up Latter's Work.
Says Dr. Abbott.
Says Election Indicates Trend in
Both Parties Toward Pro
gressive Principles.
Dr. Lymaa Abbott. «yJitor of The • "it
look." made public yesterday his Interpre
tation of the recent election, as embodied
In «n editorial which i» to appear in the
i>< xt Issue of that publication. The edi
torial !■ as follows.
I'opular dissatisfaction with present con
ditions, especially with the nlgta prices;
indignation at the manifest control of the
special interests of the tariff revision and,
Bill] more, the defences and eulogies of the
tariff bill; wrath at the corruption and
hypocritical pretences disclosed in certain
influential Republican circles, coupled with
the rgetfulness of, the fact that the ex
posure and th« prosecution were furnished
by Republicans; a growing conviction that
I •••• was an alliance between the special
interests and the Republican oligarchy,
with the belief that the easiest way to
hit at it waa by voting with the opposition;
indifference in an election which to many
voters appeared to be a contest rather
between persons than between principles —
an Impression which a too personal cam
paigning tended to increase; a general in
clination in America to make a change in
political control from time to time, an in
clination which tho political conditions that
prevailed in solid states does much to jus
tify; some fears in certain quarters, not
le/s politically effective because wholly un
defined, lest the spectre of radicalism
should work havoc to business Interests;
the fact that the Republican party was
divided between the Insurgents and the
rrculars. while th» Democratic party,
freed from the traditions of Cleveland and
the personality of Bryan, was for the first
time in years united— all these causes com
bined to bring about a political revolution.
But T do not believe the election indicates
a reaction and revolution. The facts that
in every state except Indiana where there
was a definite popular Insurgent movement
within the Republican party which suc
ceeded that party succeeded in the elec
tion; that in every state except Pennsyl
vania where there was no such movement
within the party or where it failed the Re
publican party failed In the election; that
with (he single exception of the Senator
from Indiana no Senator who was retired
by failure to secure either a renominatlon
or a re-election represents the Progressive
element in the party: that of the Rovernora
-ted a decided majority represent the
Progressive rather than the reactionary
element In their respective parties. includ
ing such representatives of progressive
thought as Woodrow Wilson, on the Atlan
tic Coast, and Hiram Johnson, on the Pa
cific; that the Insurgents are insurgents no
longer, but are recognized as leaders In the
Republican party, all Indicate that the.
election which is a sienal triumph of the
Democratic party Is not a defeat of pro
gressive principles nnd does not Indicate a
decadence of the progressive spirit.
Nor do I think that the -lantern
bugaboo of Mr. Roosevelt's imagined mon
archical ambitions cut any considerable
figure In the election. The fact that the
greatest falling off in the Republican vote
was In the State of Pennsylvania, where
his voice was not once heard in the cam
paign. Is significant if not conclusive upon
that point. The simple fact is that a Dem
ocratic triumph was publicly predicted by
both Democrats and Republicans eight
months aco nnd was foreshadowed by the
enforced retirement of Messrs. Aldrich and
Hale from the Senate and the Maine elec
tion in September; Mr. Roosevelt was
called In to save the situation; he respond
ed to the call, but could not turn the tide.
He did something more important: he
heartened the Progressives In his own
party, carried forward in his own state the
work of party purification bo well begun by
Mr Hughes and did something to inspire
with the spirit of genuine and national
democratic progress the party of his po
litical opponents.
Forgets to Cheer as Emma Gold

Emma Goldman went down Into the Ka-=t
Side last night and tried to generate en
thusiasm for anarchy nt the Terrace
Lyceum, No. 2<"»" East Broadway, but the
root Id not lift over the customary cheers.
The meeting was held to remind the East
Side of the five Chicago anarchists who
were executed after the tfaymarket riot of
3S 4 -"? in Chic* go. Miss Ooldman sought to
draw a comparison between the part played
by the government In the death of these
men with that of Spain in the case of Fran
cisco Ferrer. She declared a crisis was
Imminent in Los Angeles following the
blowing up of <- The Times" Building, a
catastrophe which she attributed to "Gen

Miss Goldman didn't like tho New Tors:

the execution of Denjlro Kokotu, his wife,

There was a disposition on the part of
politicians of both parties yesterday to for

being. They were weary and wanted rest.
For the most part, the headquarter" were
deserted, except for those who were wind-
Ing up the fagr ends of the campaign.
The only fixed date on the calendar of
either party for the remainder of the year
is the meeting for organization of the Re
publican City Committee at the Eldorado
on Thursday, December 8. This committee
is of small Importance and meets not more
thin once or twice a year. This year, how
ever, a new chairman will be elected.
Alfred T. Hobley. who was recently de
feated for Congress In Kings County, is
the present head of the committee, but a
new man la to take his place.
Chairman Prentice of the Republican
State Committee spent several hours yen
terday in the West s»th street headquar
ters getting affairs In such shape that he
could go away for a week or ten days.
Reports that had been received and tabu
lated from all over the mate had convinced
him that not a single one of the Repub
lican state ticket had been elected, although
there were hopes for a while on Wednes
day that one or two might pull through.
None of them came much nearer victory,
however, than ten thousand votes.
The returns received at state headquar
ters on the constitutional amendments were
incomplete, but it was believed that both
were passed by good sized votes.
Having put his shoulder to the wheel.
Chairman Prentice intends to stick to his
post. During the next two years It will
be his aim to bull 1 up such a strong or
ganization throughout the state that it will
be Invincible In 1912. For the immediate
present there Is not much to do.
President Grlscoin of the County Com
mittee Is taking v. rest at his summer
home in Falrfield, Conn., and will not be

gratulations which continued to pour In
from all quarters. Arthur A. McLean, the
treasurer, was writing his report of the
campaign contributions and expenditures,
which must be filed with the Secretary of
State not later than Monday, November 2*.
All through the campaign Mr. McLean
has carefully guarded the sources of the
Democratic funds, and It Is expected that
some Interesting information will be found
in his report when It is placed on file.
