CountIes Muster Roll
According to reports received at the New
Amsterdam Club the pilmarlpa of the County
Democracy were held last night
The pools were open from 7 > until 8S
oclock The new system of the organization
makes the work ot selecting committees err
Intricate and renders it almost impossible for
antagonistic politicians to find out what the
result is
I was said that 947 primary elections or one
In each election district were held and that In
each one of them live men were found who
wore wIlling to represent that district In the
association of the Assembly district The meth
od of selecting these men was this Blank slips
were provided by the captains of the election
district and when a man applied for the priv
ilege of voting he was asked I he was a Demo
vOllnl
crud If be sold yes and bin name appeared on
the registry list of last year his qualifications
to vote were complete
Tlo district Captains mid up a list of five
men but the voter didnt have to vote lor the o
men unless be wanted In cases where the
men oinl for wore mixed the live receiving
the greatest number of votes were elected
It was said that In the iwetith district the
machinery of the primaries was kindly taken
charge of by Pat Keenan who recently hued
into Tammany and carried the greater part ot
the County men In the district with him The
object of this scheme was to make it possible
for Patrick to boss all the Democratic factions
in that district
hfther be succeeded or not will not be
known o 1 day ortwo The returns from the
various districts will not be In fur nearly a
wok The next work will be the organization
of the Assembly dlstrlctcommlttees Then the
delegates to the County Committee which will
chosen meet the llrst Tuesday In March will be
in case all the committees are fled theie

not think the affidavits sntanvtted were proper
i on fUflli a motion The Justfi ndded that he
thought it would be an evasion of his duties to
end the losuei to a lury while he did not
share for a moment the feeling that any news
paper article would affect a jury I dont
think this case should goto a jury he con
cluded H must be tried by the Court The
motion is therefore denied
