Whitman Backers j
Assert 53 Counties ! Are for Governor Others Expected to Fall; Into Line Before Primaries on September 3 Albany Still Hostile! Republican Organ izations Predict Strong Support by Women Voters The supporters of Governor Whitman I assert that the county organizations j in fifty-three of the sixty-one coun'ies in the state favor his renomination as ; the Republican candidate for Governor. I and they are confident that before the j primaries are held on September 3 one ' or two of the counties now hostile to j the Governor will have swung over tt> ? him. The Whitman men concede the op? position Albany, Kings, Livingston, Os- i wego, Westchester, Ulster, Jefferson ' and Greene counties. They also admit ; that there is formidable opposition to ? the Governor in Broome, Niagara and i Orleans, but they are confident that ! "things are going their way," and that ; the natural desire to bo with the win- ! ciing group will draw theso doubtful : counties into line. Former Senator Harvey D. Hinman, In Froome, still is\n control of the or- ! ganization, but Senator Hill has a i strong labor and dry support, and in ? a hard battle probably would win against the Hinman-Welsh organiza? tion. Main Opposition in Albany In Niagara and Orleans counties Sen- ; ator George F. Thompson is potential, | and the political sharps say that while ?Senator Thompson is not enthusiastic j ever the prospect of the Governor's i success he will not support Attorney General Lewis or Speaker Sweet. The main opposition to the Governor ! is in Albany, where the county organ- ! ization is dominated by William Barnes and Ellis .T. Staley; in Kings, where Jacob A. Livingston continues hostile to the Governor; in Oswego, where Speaker Sweet is a "favorite son," and in Westchester, where William L. Ward maintains that it is wrong for the Governor to make George A. Glynn, a state employe, chairman of the state committee. Greene is in the opposition column ' because William E. Thorpe, state com- ? ? mitteeman. is in Attorney General i Lewis's office. In Lister, Philip Kiting, ; of the state committee, nnd in Jeffer- ? ?on County Elon R. Brown will throw : their support to some anti-Whitman . candidate. In Livingston the Wads- : worths are hostile to the Governor. Women's Support Expected The county organizations in Colum- ; bia, Dutchess, Erie, Essex, Monroe, : Nassau, Eonsselaer and Washington have passed resolutions indorsing the Governor for renomination, and the Whitman men say there will be half ? a dozen more formal indorsements be- ; fore the end of next week. The Governor's supporters are con? fident that the women who enroll to? day will be fairly cordial to him. In various upstate counties, ?ike St. j Lawrence, the leading newspapers | have come <>ut openly for the renom ination of the Governor, calling atten? tion to the record of his administration. "The secret of the Governor's suc? cess in getting the county organizations in line," &aid one of his lieutenants last night, "was that from the begin? ning he knew what he wanted, told his friends so an?J got them to work." Labor League Here To Enter Political Arena in the Fall It Will Support Only Those Who Subscribe to Its Programme The Labor League of New York, con- i listing of the business agents of the j various unions, met at the City Hall I yesterday and formulated a "pro- j gramme" which will be submitted to all candidates for Congress, state and city offices at this fall's elections. They de? clared that they would support the can? didates who subscribed to their pro? gramme and would use their best ef? forts to prevent the election of any candidate who opposes it. Under the title of "Federal Pro? gramme" the following pledges were set forth: "Unconditional loyalty and support to President Wilson and his pro? gramme for the? prosecution of the war; a free press; the Federal govern? ment to provide a system of life in? surance o? all kinds; establishment of a nation-wide widows' pension sys? tem; candidates for Congress to pledge themselves to improve the port of New York; Governor's Island, when no longer needed by the army, to be turned over to New York City for a summer resort and park for the peo? ple; government ownership of rail? roads; establishment of a universal eight-hour day." The "State programme" included similar loyalty pledged to the Admin? istration's war programme; the elec? tion by popular vote of all judges, with the provision for the recall ; state and municipal ownership of transportation, electric, gas and water power plants; extensi?n? of the workmen's compensa? tion law to include all wage earners; ?t?te health insurance; old age pen? sion? for citizens who, at sixty years, are without income and have been res? idents of the state vfor twenty-five years; election by popular vote of all local school boards; state supervision and accounting of all war charity sub? scriptions and expenditures; active state and municipal cooperation with the Federal government in providing for the care of dependent soldiers and sailor?, and the creation of a state bureau of welfare for incapacitated soldiers and sailors. Dr. R. S. Copeland, Health Commis? sioner, pledged the resources of the Health Department to protect, labor from occupational diseases, impure sanitation, and to fight tuberculosis. The league adopted resolutions relating to the coal and ice situations. , One resolution attacked B. B. Odell, state ?ce administrator, for threatening not to permit Dr. Day, Commissioner of s'ublic Markets, to setfuro ice for sale *t a lower price than that fixed by ta* administrator.
