New Method of Counting
Means Slow Returns.
New York will have a state-wide di?
rect primary for the first time to-mor?
row. There is considerable difference
of opinion as to whether the results
will justify the claims of those who
have advocated this method of nomi?
nation. There is no dispute, however,
among those who have familiarised
themselves with the Uw that there is
bound to be much e.?afusion, das to

that is, members of the state and
Among those who do not generally
take a vital interest in party politics
there is much inquiry as to just what

may do It,
Primary day is not a legal holiday,
as ia ?Election Day. The polls are open
?from 3 p. m. to 9 p. m., giving those
who work during the day a chance to

then, is entitled to vote in the pri?

formation regarding himself as he i
gave at the time he registered. Un?

ballot, which he may mark in one of
the booths. The police have made lists
of removals, which will be in the
bands of the election inspectors. If a
man is challenged he may swear in
his vote, and it will be accepted; but
if he has sworn falsely he will be sub?
ject to prosecution later
Under the new law the candidates
are grouped on the ballot according to
office, with no regard to party desig?
nation. The place that a candidate's '
name holds in any particular group i
has been determined by lot, so that
the candidates favored by the organi?
sation will not hold the same rela?
tive position in each group. There
are no emblems opposite the names of
the candidates, so there is no general
means of identification. The names on
?he ballot are numbered serially.
These numbers will not be the same
"for the same candidates, however, at
the end of all the ballots, owing to
the fact that in some districts there
are more candidates for district nomi?
nations than in others.
Number of Names Varies.

ber of the county committee for eae
election district and one additional f<
each twenty-five votes cast by the di
trict for the party's candidate for Go
ernor in 1912. The basis in the R
fiublican organisation is one to 10
n many of the Republican distric
tnere is no more than one membe
while the highest number in a Dem<
cistic district is thirteen.
For some weeks the organizatio
leaders raeked their brains to dete
mine how they were to instruct the
voters for the candidates favored b
them. John H. McCooey, Democrat
leader in Kings, sent to each enrolle
voter a sample ballot with a croi
marked against each name favored b
the organization. Tammany Hall i
sending out a folder giving the namt
of the organization candidates. 1
has a different one for each electio
district. The Republican leaders i
most cases are giving out slips wit
the names and numbers of the cand
dates they favor.
Under the law a voter is entitled t
receive a sample ballot at his pollin
place and to go outside and get what
ever instruction he may wish as t
voting. Then he can return and pre
paie his regular ballot accord-'ngly.
The sample ballots are white. Th
colors of the regular ballots are
Democratic, light green; Republic?!
cherry; Progressive, light blue; So
cialist, buff; Prohibition, mandarin
Independence League, canary.
Trouble for Democrats.
There are three candidates for ever:
state office in the Republican prima
ries, except Treasurer, Attorney Gen
eral and State Engineer. There ar
two candidates for each of the Istte
offices, but only on? for Treasurer. Fo
the fifteen places as delegates at larg?
to the constitutional convention ther
are no contests.
The Democrats, however, will hav
considerable trouble in picking ou
the fifteen candidates for these place
favored by the organization. Thos
candidates end the fifteen put up b
the Hennessy-Rooievelt combinatioi
have been well scrambled. The Demo
crats have two candidates for ever
state office, including the slates fa
vored by Charles F. Murphy and th
organization and by the Hennessy
Roosevelt organisation. In the Gov
ernor. Lieutenant Governor and Stat
Engineer group the Hennessy candi
dates have first place.
Under the law two election district
are grouped into one primary district
these groupings, however, not goini
outside the boundaries of an Assembl;
The Democrats in each case of th<
two election districts vote in the poll
ing place of one of the districts, ant
the Republicans and members of th?
ether parties vote in the other distric
f.oiling place. The law requires that i
ist be published "not less than thirt;
days prior to primary day." Such a lis
was printed in the papers on Augus
29, when few were interested in thi
primary, and it attracted little atten
In some cases the leaders will notif
the enrolled voters by mail where the*
are to vote. Those who do not re
ceive such notification will have to taki
a chance on finding the place when
he voted in November; in many cases
the places are still the same.
It is generally conceded that the vote
en primary day will be but a small
percentage of the total enrolment. It
is estimated that in this city re?
movals will cut out from 20 to 25 pei
< cent of the vote. Some think that th?
i vote will not be more than 36 or 40 pei
cent. Others figure it as high as 45
In the country districts the vote will
| not average more than 30 per cent,
probably less in spots.

The returns will unquestionably be
slow in coming in to-morrow night. As
! there are two sets of ballots for each
party in each polling place, one for
each of the two election districts in
the primary district, the chances of
confusion are many.
For this reason the Board of Elec?
tions has instructed the election offi?
cials to open only one box at a time.
This means that the inspectors in the
Democratic district must canvass the
vote in one box through the county
committecmen before they open the
other bog for the other election dis?
trict. The Republican inspectors in
their polling place in the primary dis- '
trict will open each Republican box
in turn and then canvass the Progres?
sive boxes and those of the other par?
ties in order.
CLAIMS BIG VICTORY
Frederick C. Tanner, for Charles
The only statement that I have
made as to the outcome of this pri?
mar?.' wsa that Mr. Whitman would
carry two-thirds of the counties of
this state and that his vole would
exceed the combined votes of ?Mr.
Hedges and ?Mr. Hinmr.n. Informa?
tion that has reached me to-day
more than confirms me in that
It has been conceded from the
first that every large county In the
state except Monroe would be for
Mr. Whitman. Since my statement
?-.as made we have not loHt a county,
and the reports received to-day In?
dicate that even Monroe (Jounty,
which was rated with Mr. Hedges, la
now for Whitman, and Saratoga and
Orange counties have broken away
from the Hinman column.
This primary will show beyond
any argument that Whitman is the
I ont in tied from pas? '
dividuals for a nomination, but that it
is the culmination of u fight begun !
during Governor Hughes'* administra- i
tion and continued by the liberals in
the Republican party to free the party

lets system of party management and >
from the men who, looking backward
instead of forward, are stiffing the as?
pirations and ideals of the great body
"I have no quarrel with Mr. Barnes,
the individnal, but I strenuously con?
tend against that type of party control
which Mr. Barnes typifies. The retire?
ment of Mr. Barnes personally, only to
be succeeded by a man of his school
and believing in his school of politics,
will have accomplished nothing.
Fight for Republicans.
"We have sustained a series of crush
iv.g defeats. We have lost many of
those who by traditions and prefer?
ences are Republicans in their belief,
and who in case our party organiza?
tion is liberalized, would be only too
glad to become Republicans in fact.
This includes not alone those who have
left us; it al?,o includes a great body
of men who believe in party govern?
ment, but who ?ire unwilling to affiliate
themselves with the Republican party
under its present leadership.
"Success of the liberal movement
Monday will mean in all human proba?
bility a united party, not only in the
state but in the nation. Its defeat
will tend to dishearten the Repub?
licans throughout the country.
"But this is not all. The great issue
in the state this fall is the overthrow
of Tammany Hall, with all that Tam
; many Hall stands for. It must be
? obvious to any one that an appeal to
the great body of independent voters,
? who are the determining factor in
even election, cannot be successfully
made unless our party organization is
so constituted and conducted as to
free it from the charge of 'boss ?lom
"The issue is not a local one. It is
nation wide, and in every state of
the union the Republicans are anx?
iously waiting to see whether the Re
| publicans of the State of N"W York
have cast aside those influences which
have stood in the way of true progress
and party success, and are ready to
move forward with new vigor and in
accordance with the ideals of the
party to victory."
District Attorney Whitman sent a
personal statement down from I'ough
keepsie. He said:
"I have endeavored throughout this
primary campaign to present the is?
sues fairly, without malice or criti?
cism of any Republican. It is the
duty of every Republican to support
the candidate who will be chosen at
the primary. I shall loyally cupport
the candidate, whoever he may be.
"My candidacy for the nomination
is based on my record. If it is bad
no political argument can make it
good. If it is good no political argu?
ment can make it bad."
From the Hedges headquarters came
a statement expressing his views.

Taft Indorse? Hedge?.
Ex-President Taft sent a letter from
Pointc-au-Pic, Canada, yesterday to
say he would like to see Mr. Hedges
nominated for Governor. It was ad?
dressed to Emil E. Fuchs, secretary of
the Hedges committee, and read:
"I have your letter of September 20.
I have not the slightest hesitation in
saying that I know Mr. Hedges per?
sonally, have a very strong friend?
ship for him and would be glad to
see him nominated a? Governor for
the State of New York. He would, with
his ability, experience and high char?
acter, make an admirable Governor.
I do not know either Mr. Whitman
or Mr. Hinman. I do know that Mr.
Hedges is a ?traightout Republican,
who stands for the principles of the
Republican party and does not barter
away those principles for political ad?
When it comes to the Senate nom?
ination, both Jame? W. Wadsworth and
Representative William M. Calder are
confident. Dr. David Javne Hill, of
Rochester, has had no headquarters
"I shall win the nomination," assert?
ed Mr. Calder. "There is every reason
to believe that i will carry Suffolk
and Nassau counties by a big majority
and all the boroughs of greater New

greater New York and Long Island will
be about 60,000, it is estimated, and
my friends inform me that I should

Mr. Calder said the direet primary
iiaw would be a good thing if It could
be fairly and systematically mansged.
| "I am grateful for the opportunity it
I has given me to present my case to the
! rcople," he said. "I have no fault to
i nr.d, but I do believe the law can be
\ greatly improved."
John W. Hutchinson, jr., manager of
the Wadsworth campaign, said they
were satisfied that the former Speaker
of the Assembly would carry every
? county north of The Bronx, with tho
? possible exception of Monroe, with
i overwhelming majorities. "In New
York and Kings." he said, "we will
' have substantially one-third of the
\ vote cast. The supporters of Whit?
man, Hedges and Hinman upstate are
all for Wadsworth,"
As to the places below Governor on
the state ticket, the indications last
night were that there would be a close
| isce between Edward G. Schoeneck an?]
i Seth G. Heacock for Lieutenant Gov
? ?.rior, between Francis M. Hugo and
! William D. Cunningham for Secretary of
; SUte, with Hugo the favorite, and be?
tween Samuel Strasbourger and Eu?
gene M. Travis for Controller, with
Strasbourger having the better chance.
Egbert E. Woodbury and Edward R.
O'Malley seemed to be running neck
?no neck for Attorney General. It is
conceded that Frank M. Williams will
i defeat Arthur M. O'Brien for StaU
j Engineer and Surveyor.
Word came from Albany last night
that the organization of William
Barnes, chairman of the State Commit?
tee, who has been on the job there for
two days, was sending out his ticket to
the enrolled voters. It consisted of
Whitman for Governor, Wadsworth for
Senator, Cunningham for Secretary of
State. Travi? for Controller, Wells for
Treasurer, Woodbury for Attorney
General, Williams for State Engineer
and Chase for associate judge of the
Court of Appeals. This fixes beyond
any shadow of doubt what the Barnes

Brooks is running against the Gruber

Albany, Sept. 16.?The Republican
organlsstlon of this city controlled by

distributed, among the Republican
?voters of the county sample ballots,
msrked to show its selection of csndl
dates for all state officers to be voted

They are as follows:

In the leading editorial of Mr.
Barnes's newspaper. "The Albany Even?
ing Journal," to-night, the qualifica
i tions of all the Republican candidates
i are commented upon.
"A vote for Mr. Hinman for Gov
I ernor," it declares, "is a vote to re*
I introduce into the Republican party,
as its controlling element, the influence
of Mr. Roosevelt."
"There appears to bo little likeli?
hood of the nomination of Mr. Hedges,"
says the editorial. "Mr. Whitman's
real competitor, therefore, is Mr. Hin
"Mr. Whitman has served the people
with discretion, industry and discern?
ment. He has a public experience,
which Mr. Hedges docs not possess.
Whether Mr. Hedges would take on
easily the drudgery of the office of
Governor Is not clear. Mr. Whitman
'. has performed that kind of service
with distinguished ability."
Of the candidates for Lieutenant
Governor, Mr. Barnes objects to Sena?
tor Seth G. Heacock be'-ause ne "has
shown signs of vituperation in opinion
! not always accurate," and to Frank
S. Sidway in that he has no public
experience so far as we know."
The organization favorite for United
States Senator, Mr. Wadsworth, is dc
! clared to be on?* who as a "man stands
?pre-eminent." Da. id Jayne Hill is dis?

his duties, a.ul especially in looking

not developed the qualities of states?

Candidate Called Grossly Ig?
norant of Workman's Act.
| John A. Hennessy's ijuoted statement
i in his Brooklyn speech on Friday night
| that "the man who ?s chief of the work
i of makirg the rates at which cmploy
I ers shall pay foi the protection of
, their men is a twenty-three-year-old
boy" has drawn the lire of F. Spencer
Baldwin, manager of the State Insur?
?Mr. Baldwin says that the rutes were
fixed by the Workman's Compensation
i Commission, and that the only men
1 who had anything to do with the prcp
i aration of the rates, outside the com
! mission, were Joseph II. Woodward, the
actuary, and W. J. Greene, his assist?
ant; Miles M. Damon, who was serving
? at the time as consulting actuary and
counsel for the commission; William
I C. Archer, who has since been appoint?
ed general manager for the commis?
sion, and Mr. Baldwin himself.
As to Mr. Hennessy's alleged state?
ment that the commission has appoint?
ed confidential inspectors with power
to go into the offices of big employers
and demand the secrets of the cash
ledgers, and that ti'.e.sc inspectors are
"boys from nineteen years of age up,
and not one came from the properly
I qualified civil service list," Mr. Bald
J win says that the only inspectors in
i the service of the commission are the
i safety inspectois attached to the- acci?
dent prevention department of the
rtate fund, and that ell of them are
experienced safety engineers and were
appointed from the civil service list.
"It ?j possible," says Mr. Baldwin,
"that Mr. Hcnnessy, in speaking of
'confidential inspectors,' may have had
in mind the members of the inspection
staff of the Compensation Inspection
Rating Buard, which is an organization
of the insurance carriers under the
act and has no connection with the
Workman's Compensation Commission.
Whate?'er may have been the source of
the statement, it shows that he is
I grossly ignorant of the organization
I and administration of state insurance

BY RIVAL CHIEFS
! Davenport Predicts Own Nomi?
nation ? Sulzer Asserts
"It is not my habit to make political
I prediction?," ?aid Fredtrick M. Daven
I port, the "organization" candidate for
the nomination for Governor on the
Progressive ticket, last night, "but from
I information we have I believe that
! William Sulzer will be beaten at leaat
, three to one."
This came from the Sulzer head?
"We have received from forty-?ix of i
the sixty-two counties in the ?t?te an '
analysis of the Sulzer Progressive pri?
mary vote. The estimates of the lead?
er? in these counties, who have made
a carelul canvass of the enrolled Pro
| gressives, give ex-Governor Sulzer a
larjre margin over Davenport.
"With the exception of four of these
counties the sentiment favors ex-Gov?
ernor Sulzer's nomination. The four
counties In doubt are Oneida, Herki
mer, Chemung and Westchester.
"In all of the counties- where there
is u Urge Progressive enrolment, such
as Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Mon?
roe, Onondaga, Vvyoming, ana, in fact,
the whole western, northern and south?
ern tiers, including the Hudson River
Valley counties, ex-Governor Sulzer ?
will carry over former Senator Daven?
port by handsome majorities.
The statement went on to say that |
i Davenport would not carry five A??em
, bly district? in New York County and !
! that the 23d would be carried for Sul?
zer by three to one. It declared that
the vice-chairman of the Kings County
organization conceded only sir dis?
tricts there to Davenport. In The
Bronx Sulzer will win three to one,
?it-cording to the rosy forecast ema?
nating from the Hotel Navarre. Queens
County, they ?ay, "is almost a unit for
Sulaer." Only in speaking of Nassau,
Suffolk and Richmond are they con?
servative enough to Hay that Sulzer'?
majority will be "fair."
Mr. Davenport himself gave out a
stutement last night in which he said,
"During the last two weeks the Pro?
gressive leaders and committeemen
everywhere told me that William Sul
/.or's selection as the Progressive can?
didate for Governor would be a disas?
ter to the Progressive party, in their
"It has been urged upon me by
many, both in and out of the Progres?
sive party, that it wa? my duty to
?peak plainly and to settle once and
for all the remote possibility of Wil?
liam Sulzer getting control of a great
party in an attempt to regain his po?
litical fortunes and the leadership,
from which he has been once expelled,
of ten million people.
"I have repeatedly said that the
boss is less dangerous that the demn
f-ogue, and It seems to fall to my lot
to fight them both in one campaign,
the demagogue at the primaries and
the bosses at the general election.
"There is no question that we have
done the first job, and done it decisive?
ly. Mr. Sulzer is a beaten man so
far as the Progressive primaries are
"I believe that Mr. Sulzer will be
I beaten at least three to one."
AND SAYS NOTHING
Experts Believe Entire Tarn.
many Ticket Will Win
Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tam?
many Hall and also boss of some other
? Democratic organizations in the state,
played golf at Good Ground yesterday.
This showed how much apprehension
he had about the nomination of his
state and local tickets in the primaries
I John A. Hennessy and Franklin D.
Roosevelt, anti-Murphy candidates for
Governor and Senator, who have been
bombarding the public with declara?
tions of what they were going to do to
the Murphy machine, gave out no state?
ments last night.
There was not the slightest doubt in
the minds of political experts that the
Murphy ticket would go through all
over the state, and that the "antis"
would have to be satisfied with a few
members of the state committee out?
side of the city. None of the contests
of the anti-Tammany Jeffersonian Alii- ,
nnce for membership in the local county i
committees are expected to be suc?
Maurice Featherson, the Hennessy
manager and former Tammany man,
who is trying to regain his leadership
in the 20th District, will probably make
the best shawing.
There are two fights within the or?
ganization, where the opposition may
win. Patrick H. Sullivan, in the 3d
District, may defeat the forces of Al?
derman John J. White. In the 6th Dis?
trict Max Altman may defeat David
Lazarus, the present leader.

Job Hedges ended his campaign for
the Republican nomination for Gov?

the northern part of the city, speaking
at the Park Republican Club, Fordham
Road and Third av., The Bronx, 35th
Assembly District; ManhatUn Repub?

21st Assembly District, and the Metro
pa le Hall, Madison av. and 112th st.,
28th Assembly District.
The principal feature of each meet?
ing was the reading of a letter from
ex-President Taft, indorsing the Hedges
candidacy. To Emil Fuchs, one of the
Hedges managers, Mr. Taft wrote:
"I have not the slightest hesitation
in saying that I know Mr. Hedges per?
sonally, have a very strong friendship
for him, and would be glad to see him
nominated as Governor of the State of
New York. I do not know either Mr.
Whitman or Mr. Hinman. I do know
that Mr. Hedges is a straight-out Re?
publican, who stands for the principles
of the Republican party, and does not
barter away those principles for po?

"My object in writing to you is to
