New York Farmers Launch
Their Own Political Party
Federation, Based on Labor
Union Plan, Formed
in Syracuse
Criticise Whitman ;
Denounce Hoover
Will Demand Actual Soil
Tillers Take Places in
Assembly and Senate
( Sta n {'orrcspondt nee}
SYRACUSE. Fob. 20.?The New'
York Federation of Agriculture, framed I
on the lines o? the Federation of ;
Labor, was organized at a largely
attended mass meeting of delegates
representing farm organizations in
practically every county of the state, ?
in the auditorium of the First Bap- |
list Church in Syracuse this afternoon. ?
While not openly hostile to Governor
Whitman, the new federation went on
record in favor of abolishing the Gov- .
ornor'a Farms and Market Council, and
various delegate* openly attacked
Charlva H. Betts, secretary of the
council. The new organization started
.1 movement to compel the Governor
to retire Mr. Bett3, from his posi?
tion as secretary of the Council of
Farms and Markets, as well as from
the State Food Commission, of which
he is also secretary.
Resolutions strongly opposing price
fixing of farm product?, either by Mr. ,
Hoover or by the state, were unani?
mously adopted.
Want Farmer Legislators
The federation repeatedly, applauded
declarations by H. W. Collifigwood. of
Now York, editor of "The Rural New
Yorker,'' in favor of replacing the
lawyers in the State Legislature with
actual farmers. There is eve*ry indi?
cation that the federation will make
a drive in all the agricultural coun?
ties to compel the old parties to nom?
inate farmers as their candidates for
the C?nate anci Assembly on a plat?
form declaring for doing away with
to many state commissions.
The friends of Dr. Liberty Hyde Bailey.
of Ithaca, former dean of the College of j
Agriculture of Cornell University, ex?
pected that his speech at the afternoon ,
session would act as a sort of starter !
of Dr. Bailey's boom for Governor on .
the Democratic ticket. Dr. Bailey was
most cordially received, but his address |
was wholly along economic lines and as
a boom speech was net at all electrify?
The tentative constitution, which was
unanimously approved and ordered
submitted to the various farmer or?
ganizations throughout the state for
considei-ation. proposes the permanent,
organis?t ion of a federation with four
primary purposes, as follows:
To increase the efficiency of farm- i
ere' organizations by bringing to !
their aid the support of every other
organization organized for the bene- j
fit of farmers.
To Speak as a Unit
To enable the farmers of the state
to speak in a united way upon ques?
tions of public concern.
To protect the interests of pro?
ducers and consumers against unfair
influences, political, commercial or
To encourage and develop ail the
interests of rural life, such as edu?
cation, production, transportation,
distribution, sale of products, pur?
chase of supplies and the develop?
ment of every rural agency which
'ends to increase the usefulness, ele?
vate the character and increase the
efficiency of the farmers of the stale.
The basis of representation under the !
constitution, which is framed much on
the lines of the Federation of Labor, is
one delegate for less than 500 mem?
bers? six delegates for 8,000 members
and eight delegates for 32,000 mem?
bers, and in the same ratio for any
larger numbers.

Bone Dry Bill!
Brown Says He Is for Tem?

[Staff Correspoiulena j
ALBANY, Feb. 20. The light botwe?n
Governor Whitman and hi;; toes to-day
narrowed ilow;i to a line-up on the di?
rect primaries and prohibition. Klon
R. Brown, majority leader of the Sen
ate, and the recognized leader of the
anti-Whitman forces, announced he
was for temperance, but against pro?
hibition. The Governor countered that
ho was for prohibition in the state
and nation. And to the prediction of
Senator Brown and his lieutenants that !
they would introduce and pass a bill
repealing the direct primaries, the ?
Governor said he would veto it.
A movement to appease the farinera, i
which, the Governor's friends believe, |
will be successful, was started last
night when Lieutenant Governor
Schoeneck conferred with representa
Uves of the farmers at Syracuse and
told them that any sincere objections
to any of the members of the Farms ,
and Markets Council would be consid
cred by the Governor, lie told the agrra
rian leaders that the resolutions ,
adopted by the State Grange and two
other agricultural organizations re- |
cently had been jammed through at ;
the misrepresentation of disappointed
officeseekers. These resolutions con?
demned the council in general terms. .
There were three, and all were iden?
tical in language. When the first one
was adopted at Rochester, Senator :
Brown and other anti-Whitman men
were present as guests of the agri-'j
Two Dry Bills in Senate
The prohibition question was brought
to the fore to-day by the introduction
of two measures in the Senate. They i
were ottered bv the Commission on'
Taxation and Retrenchment. Une was j
t. proposed amendment to the state con
stitution making the state bone dry
after September 20, 1920. The second,
bill prohibits the salo of all liquors, ex?
cept wines and beer and ale, after Sep-'
tomber 00 next, during the war and for
six months thereafter. Both measures
provide for the manufacture and sale of
other liquors for medicinal, scientific
or sacramental purposes. The former.
before becoming law. would have to be
passed by two sticcoeding legislatures
and ratified by th? people tit the polls.
"These bilY." sail Senator Brown,;
"were introduced as the result of con-'
versations with Senators. They were of ?
the opinion that the only way to get the
sentiment of the public on the Federal!
amendment was by means of a refer?

erendum could be submitted to the vot?
ers after it had passed this and the I
Legislature of 191!) ni such an early.
date that there could be no prospect of]
delaying the effect of the Federal
Speaking to the bill providing for the
:;a!e of wine and beer, the Senator said: i
"I believe in temperance, but I do I
not believe in prohibition, if for no
other reason than that prohibition doesi
not prohibit. I believe in limitation j
and regulation of the liquor traffic. Y
reduced hist year the number of drink?
ing places by about 5,000 through mak?
ing amendments to the liquor law."
Governor Whitman, when he learned
what Senator Brown had said, declared
that he thought his position was clear
to every one. "As I have repeatedly
said." continued the Governor, '"I am
for prohibition in the state and nation,
f could not send in a message to the
Legislature, urging them to ratify the
Federal amendment, because the Con?
stitution of the United States provides
that Federal amendments shall be rat
? ified by the legislatures of tho various

and the executives of the various
states have nothing whatever to do
with Federal amendments, save to
transmit them to the Legislature. That
1 ?lid. lint if I were in the Legislature
j ! would vote for the ratification of the
Fcdei al amendment."
The ratification of the Federal
amendment is what the temp?rance and
church people arc fighting for. They
are against submitting the question to
a referendum, a move which they char?
acterize as a play to the liquor inter?
The hearings on I hose various liquor
bills will bo held Tuesday. The tem?
perance forces will be marshalled by
William Jennings Bryan.
The direct primary repeal bill will he
in roduce'd Monday night.. There was
' a. meeting to-day of the committee of
,'iin- Senators intrusted with the work
1 of ironing out the bill, which has been
? in rough draft for more than a fort?
night. Two of the Republican mem?
bers, Senator.- Charles W. Walton, of
r?.-1er, ?nd .lames F. Towner, of Dutch?
es.", bolted. They informed the com?
mittee that they were against repealing
the direct primary.

"Kitty" Paid for $30 a Plate !
Dinner of Partridge Club
Some sidelights on gambling in big'
New York hotels by exclusive "clubs"
were given yesterday by Theodore
Titze. assistant manager of the Ritz
C'arlt.on, and James 0. Stack, presiden!
and general manager of the Imperial
ITotel, called as witnesses against the
"Partridge Club," under investigation
by Judge Wadhams. in the "John Doe"
inquiry into gamblers and gambling.
Mr. Titze t-e.stilied that he had been
host to the Partridges during 191?? and
1916, but in May, 1917, Police Captain
Duggan had notified him that he must
dispossess the club, because it was vio?
lating the law. Titze said he had never
seen any money taken out. o) the
"kitty." Bills due the Ritz-Carlton, he
said, were paid by George T. Bauchle,
the president of the club. A more de?
tailed history'of the club was furnished
by Mr. Stack, of the Imperial, who has
been a member for several years'.
When they were mere fledglings,
Stack said, the. Partridges were the
guests of Proprietor Reagan for weekly
games, and dinner ii la carte. Once a
month during the winter there was a
big game and a big dinner. Stack said
the price of the "big" dinner was $30 a
plate. Wines and sparkling waters
were ? la carte, but neither guest-' nor
?nembers paid outright for anything.
Stack explained that '.he bill?) were paid
out of the "kitty." About four years
?go, Stack said, he wont to the Holland
House, and the Partridges flew out of
the Knickerbocker and followed him
over to Fifth Avenue.
In December, 191?;, Stack went to (lie
Imperial, but as there were no suitable
private dining rooms in the house the
club didn't become hi? guest again until
September, 1917.
Bauchte Head of Club
Stack said George V. Bauchle, a law?
yer of 5) Chambers Street, was presi?
dent of the club since its inception. He
testified that he had seen Nathan Isaac
Evens, of the Hotel Biltmore, at the
club meetings in the Imperial. Stack
also remembered that he had seen for?
mer Fire Commissioner John II. O'Brien
at the meetings, also n man named
Heimendinger and a Mr. Pollock and a
man named Jacob (surname).
"Now, on January 20 last, when about
twenty players were playing chemin-dc
for." asked Mr. Smith, "did you . eo.
Stack said he believed he did.
"Heimendinger lost $14,000, didn't
"I didn't hear that, he lost anything,"
replied Stack.
"What was the name of the Russian
who was playing at that time?"
"There was a Russian with a long
name there, but 1 can't remember."
"Didnf you hear that In- lost $25.
"I just heard you say so, but. that's
the first I ever heard of it."
"Didn't you receive a complaint from
this Russian officer?"
"I did not." replied Stack.
Tt developed that Stack retired from
the room at 2 o'clock on the Sunday
morning when the Russian officer was
supposed to have lost ?he $20.not), and
the loss didn't happen until nearly ?"
"Well," continued Mr. Smith, "this

Stack said he was without any knowl?
edge as to the transaction.
Bauchle Ordered From Court
Stack was explaining that the weekly
dinners a la ear'- cost only 56 a plate
and that there are sometimes souvenirs
given, when Judge Wadhams suddenly
turned to Mr. Smith and said:
"Who is that gentleman sitting down
there back of counsel's table?"
Glancing in the direction indicated,
Mr. Smith replied that it was ?Mr.
Bauchle, the president of the club.
"He ?s signalling something to this
witness," declared Judge Wadhams,
"and 1 want him put out of the room."
.Mi-. Bauchle turned scarlet and at?
tempted to explain that the court must
have misinterpreted some unintentional
motion he had made.
"It was very plain to me. sir; very
plain. You must leave the room."
Bauchle, still flushed.-retired.
Stack further explained that he didn't.
know- wiiat the rake-off was at any time,
but lie recalled that there was a surplus ,
from the "kitty" even when chemin-de
fer was played, and this was divided
evenly and placed on the table an?)

called that, ho had seen CliPrles A.

"I've never heard of anything like ?

Thomas J. Canty, a partner of Mr.
Bauchle, said he knew nenry Tobin,
Arnold Rothstein, Cyril de Cordova,
Charles A. Krickl. Max Blumenthal and
a man by the name of A. J. Foley. He
said de Cordova was a broker of 25
Broad Street. All ol" them, he said, he

i meetings. lie said he knew Nathan
?Y"\at"l Evens, but didn't know what
his business was.
"Did you ever hear that he ran a
gambling place ai 15G West Forty
fourth Street?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Never," replied Canty.
"In order to pay for the $.'',0 a plate
i monthly dinners, with wines ? la carte, j
lor forty members, it is necessary to
raise about $2,500 a night, isn't it?" ]
asked Mr. Smith.
"I shouldn't think that any of the
dinners ever cost more than $1,500,"!
Canty replied.

More Money Needed to
Complete Expense Fund
of $30,000
A rumor that the parade of L0.000
National Air.:y soldiers in New York
to-morrow could not be held because
sufficient funds for transportation were
not available and which caused con?
sternation, in Camp Upton was em?
phatically denied yesterday by Henry
MacDonak!. director general of the
Mayor's Committee on National De?
fence. While subscriptions by the pub?
lic to the ?30,00?> expense fund have not
been up to expectations, Mr. MacDon

with the parade arrangements and that
the affair will be held regardless of the
finances on hand.

Shoes and Ships

While you are blaming the Kaiser
add one extra curse. He and his war
are responsible f?r.Ihn present high
price of mice.
So small i.i the supply and so great
is the increase in cost, that the Legis?
lature at Albany is considering an in-'
vestigation to sec if some mouse mag?
nate has not been juggling the market. |
rn times of peace you could buy a
durable, reliable mouse for 10 cents.'
?Mouse merchants now say that a 1918
model will cost at least 70 cents, and ?
that those who are going to get mice;
had better send in their orders early.
Dr. A. B. Wadsworth, state bacteriol?
ogist, has asked for funds to send a;
commission to study the mouse short?
age. Senator Jnmcs A. Walker has
offered to introduce a bill, providing
for the establishment of a state mouse
farm, probably in the Catskilla.
A Cleveland man has invented a.i in?
flatable vest, which, he claims, fills every
requirement of the old-fashioned cork
lifebelt and fits the average figure
much more comfortably. Th" owner
of one of these, he says, if his ship is
torpedoed, has only to blow himself up,
and then bob serenely over the waves,
making faces at the U-boat.
Curfew shall not ring to-night at
liockville. Long Island. To drop from
poetry to fact, the Rockville curfew
never did ring. Up to the present time
tho blast of a steam whistle had noti?
fied the inhabitants that it was 8:30
p. nj, and time for every one to be off
the streets.
Now the city fathers want the cur?
few to stop blowing. Scores of Ro?k
villers, they say, have complained that
"the darned old whistle*' wakes them up.
In the third divorce suit which he
and his v/ife have fought out in the St.
Louis courts. Louis L. Salveter pro
tests against the material spirit shown
by his spouse, He testifies that she
even put their marital relations on a
business basis. Once she left him, he
allege >, and would not come back until
he had promised her $500. Then, he
says, when she did return, she charged
him $10 everv time he kissed her.

Baby Carriage Vote Here Vital
In Special Congress Elections
Getting out the "baby carriage vote"
on Washington Heights is the real
problem in the coming Congressional
elections. Under ordinary circum?
stances, political leaders say, there
would be little interest in these special
elections, and the district leaders could
t.i li within a few votes just how the
; candidates would stand.
It's different now. Nobody knows
how the women will vote, or how many
01 them will vote. Nobody knows
whether the "baby carriage vote,"
which ??pends the sunny afternoons out?
side of the home anyway, will take in
the polling place in its meanderings, 01
whether the bulk of the women's vote
will be east by the stenographers and
business women who pass the polling
I laces on their way from the subway.
Miss Helen Varick Boswell. chairman
of the worn mi's committee for *he Re?
publican County Committee, is counting
on a heavy registration from the "baby
carriage vote" if it is a pleasant day
on Saturday.
"We shall have a woman outside
i every polling place who will be ready
te take charge of th" baby while
mother goes in to register." said Mis?
? Boswell yesterday afternoon. "Wt
; don't expect a large registration fron
'. the mothers on Friday, because tin
polls do not. open until 5 o'clock, an<
that is too late for the woman who ha;
to get the baby to bed and have dinne
ready by the time her husband come
up from work.
"Saturday is the day for the women
They always go out to do their Sunda;
marketing on Saturday morning, an.
we expect them to .stop in and registe]
"We have started a house to bous
canvass at night in the 21st Congres
, sional District to interest the busines
woman. Our leaders have organized
staff in every district to visit the bus
] r.tss women, who are not so likely t
hove husbands to remind them of thci
political duty.
"There will be no women's rallie
for women alone. We are going i
with the men on all their meeting
\Vc don't believe in treating women an
. differently from men voters now. Sei
[ .-.tor Borah is coining up from Wasl
ington to speak at ore of our rallie?.
I believe ?Senator Cahier is to spes? to
us. too."
Republican women leaders have been
appointed in every Assembly district?
the 21st Congressional District. The'
are as follow-:: llth Mrs. Willi*? &
Wilkinson; 13th. Miss Adele Erb; 2M,
Mrs. Rohen S. Conkling; 2?d, Mrs. M.
L. Ogden; 23d, Mrs. Sydney C. Cram.
Tiie Washington Ifeights district
happens to be the best organized from
the viewpoint of the women voter?, but
similar plans are on foot for the other
three. A meeting of one thousand Re?
publican women v ill be held in Brook?
lyn to-night :.;. 7604 Fourth Aven??.
Democratic women are holding sinul*r
rallies in their district clubs. The
Woman Suffrage par?;,- is holding >i?>n*
partisan meetings at which candidates
of all three parties address the women
and answer questions.
Suffrage headquarters entertained
yesterday a steady stream of women
who came in seeking information con
corning where they should c?> to reg?
ir ter and how to" tell whether they
were eligible to vote or not. The)'
were told that the list of registration
places would be printed in the da?)
papers in time for them to hunt uo to*
laundry or florist shop nearest their

general election for women voUffc

appointed as they are i?. hen they tun
out that only the women ?n two section?
of Brooklyn and i_ The Bronx N?

John R. Voorhis, Commissioner ?
Flections, announced yesterday '???
wc men would be obliged to state then

"It's up to the election clerk then.
he said. "If he thinks the woman i*
