The TfhoU Town Turns Out to near nin Score Low. The Hon. Benjamin F. Tracy, the candidate of the Republicans and of all believers In sound money and tho Ht. Louis platform, mndo a ring ing opeech in Flushing, L. I., last evening. The meeting, which was hold under the auspices of the Flushing Republican Club, was most en thusiastic, and all the Inhabitants of tho town seemed to hnvo turned out to do tho General honor. The Town Hall, where tho meeting was held, was profusely decorated with flags and banners, nnd there wns a largo picture of Gen. Tracy eusDcndcd at the rear of tho platform. Every seat was occupied and hundreds had to Btand outside There was great applause, especially at the points where Gen. Tracy scored Soth Low and called him a Cleveland Democrat. Tho audience went simply wild when tho General declared emphatically that ho was in tho light to win. The Chairman of the meeting was Frederick P. Morris, the President of tho local Republican club. Mr. Morris said that tho only persons opposod to Gen. Tracy were the Wilson tariff men and tho Cleveland Republicans. "The Citizens' Union candidate," ho said, "is weaker to-day than he waB n week ago, and a week from to-day ho will be a great deal weaker." The Chairman then, amid a storm of applause. Introduced Gen. Tracy, who bowed reportedly to tbo audlonce In acknowledgment of the hearty greeting. Tho General, who was cheered again when he came forward to speak, said ho wonld not undertake to discuss tho question of non-partisanship nor to say what It was and what It was not. " I think, however," he Bald, " that In a city of three and a quarter millions tho proposition that political parties should dissolve In tho presence of a great political election is an ab surdity. Why should such a proposition bo submitted to the people I The party that Is competent to gov ern a nation of 72,000.000 of people and a State of 7,000,000 of poople is Burely not Incompetent to take an In terest In tho Government of the sec ond greatest metropolis In the world. Can It be possible that a party that 1b In favor of good government In the nation Is in favor of bad government In the city I Parties are not constituted in that way, and men oro not constituted that way. The man that is an honest man is an honest man all the way through, and the party that Is in favor of good government In the State cannot be In favor of bad government In the city." "Good boy, IJen. That's tho talk," cried out a voice in the rear of the hall, and a roar of cheers went up from the audience. When the applause had subsided Gen. Tracy continued. Baying: " I assume yon do not want Tammany Hall In Flushing." There was a fierce chorus of "No, "No," from all parts of the ball, and Gen. Tracy smiled. "Now." ho continued, "you must have Tam many Hall or the candldato of the Republican party. There is no doubt about It and there can be no doubt about this proposition. Men may deceive tho i selves with sophistries as much as they pleaso, but cho fact remains that )ou can not win a great political conflict without a groat political party behind you any more than a great battle with a mob against a disciplined army. "Now let me say a few words about inde pendent movements. Tho history of all inde pendent movements Is that they make a great bplurge before election. Thoy mako great noise and great display and float upon the top of tho waves for the time being, but they nover sink Into the roots of a political organization. Tako the case of Mr. Ixw, for instance. He was twice nominated by tho Republican party nnd elected Mayor of Hrooklyn. Ilia term of offito expired In 18H6, and in 1885 wo were engaged In electing his successor. He supported an Independent movement, and for the llrst timo tho Republicans and the Citizens failed to agree, and If you had In that election belioved only a quarter of what you beard you would have been confident that the Independent can didate would havo beaten tho regular candi date. What was the result I Tho regular can dldato got 37,000 votes and tho Independent candidate, Mr, Low's bupporlcr, received only 1 3.000 votes." There was renewed cheering at this point, and a vole cried: "Give It to htm, General." Gen. Tracy thon referred briefly to tho Shop ard independent movement, and said that un less all previous experiences were reversed In 1807, tho Independent movement of Mr, Low was doomed, "The choice," ho said," Is betwo n the Rcpub- 1U,.h .... ,.nA 'P........ ...... lfll rrt.A ln.,.,l,tl. .W(.

We have In Greater Now York more than L':i 0,000 Republicans who voto the ticket year In and year out. Tho man who gets 175,000 votes In tbo coming election is . morally certain of being elected, Mr, Low will draw more vote from tho Demo cratic pnrty than he will from the Republican party.

Few Seople believe be will draw less than 70,000 or 0,000, and a great many think he will poll from 100,000 to 140,000 votes on election day. Mr. Low is the only candidate who will draw any votes from (ho Republican party. It Is Im possible for Mr. Low to get more than H per cent, of tho regular organized vote In the city of New York. Our ennvuss Indicates that he will get about 8 pur cent. Now give him 10, or l'A or '-0 per cent. If you want lo, and still he cannot get Iho Republican candldatu down to any point where the Tammany Hall candidate can com pare with him. Great applause.) "So thut you see," continued Gen. Tracy, "Mr. Low remaining In the Held and doing his best, cannot defoat the Republican ticket.

WniTK Plains. N. Y Oct. 26. Tho first stops of the criminal prosecution of tho person or por tions who falslflod the nomination certificates of Independent candidates for offico In Westchester county wore taken to-day befoio Pollco Justice John P. Moran of White Plains. On the sworn complnlnt of Robert Coward. Deputy County Clerk, Justice Moran summoned witnesses and examined them to detcrmlno who It was who falsified the certificates and what tho nature of the crime was. Mr. Coward in his affidavit says that he verily believes, and thereforo alleges, that ono George W. Robertson, ono William II. II. Ely. ono John Doe and one Richard Roe have committed a crime in tho vlllago of White Plains on or about the 13th day of October, 1807, In that said per sons at said time and place falsely made oath to and fraudently defaced a certain certlflcatoof nomlnatlo of the Westchester County Citizens' League, in violation of Bectlon 410 of the penal code. Ho asked that W. M. Dubois, G. T. Capron, J. W. Stafford, Thomas II. Fitzgerald, John W. McCabe. Michael J. Dillon. Edward Buckhour, and Charles L. Anderson may be examined under oath to determine who com mitted the crime and what the nature of the crime is. Several of these men, who are notaries public, were examlnod to-day by Henry C. Henderson, who appeared on bebalf of the people. In the County Court room, before Justlco Moran. They all testified that tbe nomination certldcates had been altered after they had executed them. The petition that had been circulated with the names of E. II. Long for Sheriff and Charlos Hllbert for Coroner bad been altered, and the HU1UO Ul II . J. UlailCj 1UI BSCIUI'IJ ill 111B OOC ond district had been added, while to petitions for Oror.ey had been ndded tho names of lying and Hilbert. Most of the certificates had been delivered to Ely, Robertson, and J, W. Stafford. J, W. McCabe of Mnmaroneck testified that Messrs. Ely and Robertson and Notary Fitzger ald received the petition he had circulated In Mamaroncck for urancy. which subsequently appeared with the names of Long for Sheriff and Hilbert for Coroner pasted thereon. Ho had seen them doing somo pasting In thoOrawam pum Hotel, but did not know whether the cer tificate he presented was altered while ho wa there or not. Other witnesses will bo called, nnd. If the tes timony warrants it, arrests will he made. Thrro Is no doubt that this will be done. The mat ter certainly has taken a serious turn. W. II. II. Ely Is editor and proprietor of tho Tarrytown Pleas Record, and is also a prominent member of tbe Westchester county bar, being counsel for the village of Tarrytown. Ho Is a Democrat. George W. Robertson Is President of the village of Peeks kill, and was three years ago elected State Senator from this district on tho Republican ticket. On Oct. 18 County Clerk Crumb rejected tho certificate of Messrs. Long, Hilbert, and Graney after a hoarlnjr. Justice Keogb then ordered tho names of Lonr and Hilbert stricken from the National Dcmocratio ticket on tho ground of fraud. Messrs. Long nnd Hilbert joined in tho petition, and Judge Iveogh In his opinion hold that thoy were not parties to tho fraud and knew nothing of it. FLOOD Or POLITICAL MAIL.

Seth Low admitted lost night while speaking at several Brooklyn meetings that he was very anxious to seo the Republican party smashed, trampled upon, and wined out of existence. Although this wa not news to the ma jority of Republican In Greater New York. Mr. Low bas all along bidden himself behind the cloak of Republican ism, so tbat few Republicans really believed that Low was not a traitor to tbo party tbat had once plao.d him at the hoad of a great city government. He had been declaring each night tbatbe just wanted toglvehomeruletoGreater New York and to separate national and munici pal Issue'. In other words, that bo was a Re publican when national questions were at stake, but an independent on o ty Issues. "Don't lot these outside statesmen these Sena tors from otber States come in hore and confuse your minds." he said, "but stand by the Citi zens' Union, so tbat when you have elevated your men they will be in olllce what you chose them to be. If you olect your olllcer with tbe Implied idea that ho is to build up his national party he'll doit. But on the other hand if yoti elect men who are pledged to think of tho city only they will not attempt to build up their party or organization. Tbe man who tries todo both of tbeso things is llko a man who tries to ride two horscB at tho same time. If tho horses begin to separate he has got to select one or the other. Fleet your JMnjor with a single duty to perform and hold him to It." In other words, Mr. low gnvo his hearer to undrrstund thnt he cared nothing for the na tional Kepubllcan party; tbat he had selected the horso which he intended to ride, and that horse was not tbo sort of a horse which ho had ridden a fow years ago. He spoke nt five meetings In Brooklyn. Tho biggest of t e meet ugs which ho addressed was that at the Clermont Avenue Rink. Hero for the first time since the campaign opened a om mittee had failed to 111) tho hall. On every other occasion at nil the meetings held In the Rink this j ear the building has been crowned.

Tho list of speakers ut the Rink was the same a that at the otber four moctlngs, one of which was at Flatbush. where the Cits managed to corral a crowd of women In Schwalbacb's ball. Mr. Low begged and pleaded with the audi ence for votes. While the meeting at the Rink wa In progress one of Mr. Low's admirers Bald to another In a whisper: "I'm very sorry for Mr. Low, He knows he has no earthly chance of being elected. Ho told a friend of his. Mr. Wasserman, In Now York a few days ago. that Brooklyn was all right, and that he would do well on this sldo of tho river, but that New York would glvo him fow votes!
