Will H. Hays
Is Now Leader Of His Party Xhis Fact Deinonstrutetl at Meeting of Kepuhliraii Committee at Chicago He Never Stops Working Governor Lowden's Friends Start Boom for President; Other Timber is Discussed Stafi Correspondence CHICAGO, Jan. 12.?Among thc out? standing features of the meeting of thc Republican Xational Committee nt. the Congress Hotel nothing is plainor than the fact that Will H. Hays for the prcsent, now that Colonel Roosevelt is ironc. is the leader of the party. This is partly due to the mechanics of the situation and part'y to the suc cess which has attended the young statesman from Indiana since last Feb? ruary 1- at St. Louis. when he became chairman. Will H. Hays is modest but not retiring. Study of "retiring" has no place in thc curriculum of thc Indiana school of politics. as conducted by Hays, Governor Goodrich, Senators Watson and Xew and the rank and ti Ic. Thc Republican organization there has been remarkably successful in re? tiring the Democrats, but they do not themselves rctire. Chairman Hays has driven the national committee ma? chine literally almost day and night for the last clcvcn months. When Rudolph K. Hynicka, of Ohio.on Friday moved that thc chairman have full au? thority to appoint the ten members of the executive committee and "such other committees as he may deem nec? essary," it meant that Chairman Hays \\;.s not to be interfered with in the control of the mechanics ot' tlie na? tional committee. He Likes to Consult It probably is a fact that r.o chair? man ever went to thc pains that is daily exercised by Chairman Hays to consult with his colleagues in the com? mittee. Chairman Hays would have much preferrcd that Hynicka's resolu? tion should not have beon offered, but it was offered. a:ui adopted without a dissenting vo?.":. Another signilicant feature of the meetinj: was the "moving in" ot' thc women members oi' the Woman's Xa? tional Executive Committee. It is one thing to act in an advisory capacity, hut it is another tiiin.c: to have a vote. As stated in Thc Tribune yesterday, Miss Mary Garrett Hay, of Xev.- York, held the proxy of Gunder Plson, of North Dakota, and Miss Josephine Preston, of Washington. that ot' S. A. Perkins, ot" Tacoma. They voted and talkcd. Governor Burnquist of Minnesota, the osilv one on Friday who made a set speech, made a h;t when he effec tively used quotations from Lincoln and Roosevelt bearing on labor ar.d compensation. Thc stalwart young Govcrno - rom thc wheat state had tle v. it!' thc Townley men ;.,r:'i tl D n ?crats last fall, but ho b<-?'?" ' ippcaling to thc rea? son ami ense ":" faimess of the voters.

Around her clustered m great crowd of doughnut boys. grabbing for the hot, rings, and over iira corner the Salva- j tionists were singing "Oh, God, our help in ages nast." lt was the iirsf doughnut day of the. I new Salvation Army hut in Union j Square, and there were formal exer cises at noon to dedieate the new rest room for soldiers and sailors. Ljeu- I tenant Joseph F. Wright. representing j Admiral Usher, of the Brooklyn navy j yard, and Colonel William Mclntyre, of i the Salvation Army, made the speeches, and the banfJ of the battleship Recruit furnished the music and got a good share of the first batch of doughnuts. Adjutant McAllister ar.d Adjutant Helen Purveyance fried 1,000 dough? nuts, and between batches gave los sons to the novices who are to take their places after they get the knf.ck of making the real trench kind; but the veterans had to keep out ot' sight p.fter thc first hour, because the dough? nut boys wouldn't go 'way, preferringto lean over the counter and start one of those "Were you in Bordeaux?" con versations and the doughnuts almost Lurned up. ; The hut will be open every day for reading, writing ano gossip, with doughnuts and coffee for IU cent3 to all men in uniform. Sisson Sounds Warning Against Bolsheviki New York Financier Says Kadi vals Would Wreck Both Capital and Labor BOSTON-, Jan. 10. -The business and industrial world would be turned up sidc down, investors' interests would be wiped out and labor vouid tind its present rights and privirfeges gone if Bolshevism should prevail in this country. Francis II. Sisson. vice-presi di nt of the Guaranty Trust Company ' ot' New York, said to-day in warning; business men to guard against chaos ! and mob rule. Mr. Sisson snoke at a I meeting held under the auspiccs of the ' Maspachusetts Chamber of Commerce. "We business men of America are j standing to-day in the front line I trenches of private ownership of prop-j crty, of freedom and democracy in business and government. Let us not l 're deceived into giving ground by tlie | specious propaganda of visionarics or i demagogucs. Privajc ownership will have to fight for its very life. "Labor itself should be on its guard ! to forestall such possibilities, for labor has a.-> much at stakc and is j just as jealous of our individual and colleetive libertics as any other elc- ] ment in our social organization." Mr. Sisson also spoke in opposition j to government ownership of railroads and other pubiic utilitics. I Whitman Drops Fight on Election Of Governor Smith Tells Glynn It Is Not Prob? able Full Recount Would Give Him Majority; Chair? man Scores Tally Officials Ex-Governor Whitman's contest of the. election of Governor Smith has! been dropped. George A. Glynn,.chair-1 man of the Republican State Com-' mittee, announced thc decision yester-l day, making pubiic letters which passed between him and Mr. Whitman Concerning the examination oi" thc ballots. . "Unless the State Committee dis-. agrees with me," Mr. Whitman wrote, "I ain disinclincd to approve a con ti'nuance of the inspection." Continu? lng, he wrote: "Had my opponent's majorityvbeen as it appeared at the time of your first communication, namely about 7,000, i should no'. hesitate to consent to a continuance of the inspection through? out thc city and states, as I have no doubt that that majority would have been overcome. It is, of course, pos? sible, though to my mind cxtremely un likely, that an examination of every bullot box throughout the state might result in the overcoming of thc ap-: parent majority of 14,000. Glynn Accuses Ballot Handlers Mr. Glynn had said in his lettcr to Mr. Whitman: "The result shows a net gain in favor of the .Republican candidate for Governor six votes io an election dis-, trict. i might call attention to thc fact that the districts examined were not picked, but were taken in tho regular order. beginning with the lst District. "If this average were maintained in ' the ~,629 election districts of greater New York thc Republican candidate would gain 15,771 votes, a number suf? ficient to offset the returned majority' for the Democratic candidate for Gov- j ernor. "Thc examination discloses the fact that many inspectors are incompetent, that many wilfully violate the law, and : that the law lacks safe^uards to securc an honest" vote. "The examination vcrified the com- ; pto.int made to the committee that bal- : lots in some districts had been handled seven and eight times. with a loss to the Republican candidate for Governor as compared with thc original figures. It was found in these districts' that hundreds of ballots had been invali dated by double cross marks and de facement in the Governor's group, and that there was no resemblancc be? tween tlie cross marks when two were made, indicating. that the elector had not marked twice. Wants Further Safcguards | "lt was found that a large percent I age of the voicl ballots which should I be placed in thc official envelopes pro ! vided I'or that purpose were returned : to the ballot boxes and a great many j actually counted for the Democratic candidate for Governor. \ "The State Committee believes that i the disclosurcs of the examination I should result in the enactment of laws j for the safeguarding of the ballot and ! an amendment. of the law relating to contests in elections. "An examination ot' all the ballots oT greater New York would $30,000. An action in the courts to pjrove t'tle to a state office would cost more than j $200,000 and might readily extend over two years.. Under the law this Co.-,t ' must be borne by the candidate."
