Sentiment among tho Republicans In
New Yorlt State favors the nomination
of Major-Gen. Leonard Wood for Presi
dent, according to the returnn received
from tin poll of the. organization county
chairmen taken by Tiir Sun- and New
Row Frank 0. Lou-den of Illinois Is
1Iio second choice. Of all "first choice"
votes cast Wood received a trifle less
than $3 per cent. Ot!ier""flr.st choices"
wero cast for the following: Gov. Low
den, 10.2 ri'r cent.; Senator Warren !.
Harding, 2. IS per cent., and Dr. Nich
olas Murray Iliitler. 3.4S per cent
When It camo to declaring the second
choice of their counties tho chauVnen re
turned SO per rint. of their votes for tho
Illinois Executive. .
IlnrdlnR .S'rrma Third Choice.
Senator Harding polled 17 per rent,
cf the "second choice" votes, which in
ennnectlon with his "first choices'' would
fairly enough entitle him to be consid
ered third choice of the Republicans of
the Empire State.
Wood got 12 per cent, of the second
choices and Senator Miles Polndcxter
was named as second In C.9 per cent of
the replies received.
Tho best that Senator Hiram W.
Johnson of California got In the returns
was a little less than 4 per cent, of tho
New York State will send eighty
eight dlegates to the Chicago conven
tion. They will all bo elected at a direct
primary on Tuesday, April 6. Tho or
eanlratlon slato for tho "Big Four" was
" aelectcd nt an unofficial Stato conven
tion on February SO. It consists of
United States Senators James W. Wads
worth, Jr.. and William M. Calder, for
mer Judge Nathan L. Miller and Col.
William Hoyce Thompson.
Tho only opposition to this slato Is on
the part of William M. Bennett, who Is
running for delesate-at-largo on a John
nighty-four district delegates will be
chosen by Congress districts on primary
day. There la no preferential voting In
tho primary, and It Is the policy of Oie
regular organization to send tho entire
delegation of elchty-clght to Chicago un
pledged. Senator Johnson's managers
have put up twenty-one candidates for
district delegate?, pledged to tho Cali
fornia Senator, in twelve districts, all
1n New York city. They are running
In tho Third. Fourth. Fifth. Sixth. Sev
enth, Eighth. Ninth and Tenth Congros
districts In Brooklyn: tho Eleventh,
taking In Statcn Island and the lower
end of Manhattan : the Fourteenth, the
Nineteenth and the Twenty-first In Man
hattan. Two Johnson candidates nre
running In each of these districts, ex
cept In the Fourth, Tenth and Four
tenth, where only ono "insurgent" has
been entered In each.
In th Seventeenth District, presum
iibly ono of tho banner Republican dls
tricta, friends of Herbert Hoover have
entered a ticket of candidates pledged to
vote for bis nomination as the Ucpub-
Ilcan candidate for President. Tho can
dldatea tiro Mlsa Mabel Choatc and
Julian S. Myrick. They are pitted
against tho organization slate, consist
Ing of Herbert Parsons, member of the
national committee, and Albert J. Ber
The League of Nations looms as the
paramount Issue In the campaign In the
minds of New York's county leaders,
with the accompanying thought of
Btralght Americanism as against Inter
Prohibition, ns It obtains under the
Eighteenth Amendment, stands out
prominently as an Issue In tho replies
received by The Sc.v and Nkw Y'okk
Herald. Tho Incompetency nnd ex
travagance of tho Wilson administra
tion and Its opposite a sound, economic
oonduct of governmental affairs bulk
largely In the New York mind ac things
to wage a campaign on this autumn.
There was a wldo diversity of opinion
expressed In the reports of tho P.opub-,i
llcan leaders ns to their opinion of
entlmcnt among Democrats for tho
Democratic Presidential nomination.
William O. McAdoo was mentioned the
most frequently with Attorney-iJencral
A. Mitchell Palmer a "closo-up." Threo
county chairmen said the Democrats of
their communities wanted Herbert
Hoover. Tho same number mentioned
Gov. Edward I. Edwards of New
Jersey, on tho "wet" issue ; Senator
Gilbert M. Hitchcock on tho League Is
ue, and former Secretary of State
Robert Lansing, on tho "autocracy-of-Wilson"
Issue, each received ono men
tion. A to the Republican Presidential
preference there were hints In Borne
counties that while Wood was loading,
entlment for Lowden was gaining be
causo of the demand for a business
man In tho Whlto House.
"Tho best known candidate Is Gen.
"Wood," wrote a chairman In ono
county, "and apparently ho bus the
rreatest strength nt present. But there
Is a growing sentiment, for a bualncen
wan. There Is some sentiment for
I.6wden, but none fo,- Butler or Poin
dextcr. There Ih some sentiment for
Jdhnson. but It Is not being encouraged
by tho Bepubllcan newspapers. '
"The women's vote docs not at pres
ent favor any 'Hndldite to un extent
that would identify him as the women's
;' Women Working for Wood.

Jfmo chairman wrote that while , j,lUj

i It existed at present, ho would no"t
caro to say that It had crystallized as
"Personally T n,re." he added, "that
tbo Republican candidate-should fogl-i
cMly bo an out and out opponent of
tho League of Nations, and would like
to see sentiment along that line develop."

t.iui no encouragement from the State
committee. Dr. Butler said he did not
wish to haro the delegation Instructed,
but wanted the delegates to go to Chi
cago with their minds open.
It l certain then that, while Dr. But
ler will get some votes on the first ballot
because he Is a Now Yorker, ho will not
be classed an a "favorite son," In no
circumstances would tho Wood man
agers consent to-have delegates favor
ablo to them voto for Butler on the first
ballot. Their strong play Is to roll up ns
many votes as possible on the first bal
lot, as they realize Wood's chance lies
In putting lilrrl across on the first, sec
ond or at the latest the third ballot. So
the New Y'orl: delegation will be split on
the first ballot, as It looks now.
Onu Republican leader who favors
Wood, but assorts that he looks upon
the situation with a judgment unbiassed,
predicts that tho cighty-clght otos nre
likely to be divided In something this
way on tbo first roll call: Wood, 35:
Lowden, Ju; Butler, 18, ami Harding,
It Is probable that th campaign to
gain the favor of the district delegates
will be waged more Intensively after the
primary. Friends of Lowden are plan
ning quiet but strenuous work. Hard
ing's managers are not going to over
look the chance to pick up a few of the
delegates. Butler's friends will by no
meuna give up their campaign to make
his availability recognized.
Of course, Senator Johnson will not
givo up tho New York ship after the
primary, but he Is staking most of his
chances on picking up delegates among
the candidates put In tho primary by
hli managers. Tho Senator Invaded New
Y6rlt State for ono of his typical speak
ng tours on Friday. Ho spoke at sev
eral meetings In Buffalo. Yesterday he
pddresscd audiences In Uttcu and Troy.
To-day he Is In New Yortr prepared to
cpen up a hot campaign for delegates in
this city. Ho speaks In Cooper Union
to-morrow night and in Carnegie Hall
on Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday
he devotes to Brooklyn.
Jn one or two of the districts in Brook
lyn, where local animosities are Inter
jected Into tho fight for delegates and
whore there is strong opposition to tho
Lcaguo of Nations, It Is barely possible
that the Senator may pick up a delegate
Keports to Title Sc.v axd New Yor.K
Herald from various parts of the Stato
do not Indicate that Mr. Bennett has
anything more than the "outsldcst" out
side chance to become onu of New
Y'ork's "Big Four."
Representative Norman J. Gould,
Wood's Eastern manager, ho Is one of
the strong and popular New York State
leaders, has been unusually successful
In developing sentiment for th General,
botli as indicated by the poll and by spe
cial reports. He has been assisted b
an active local committee headed by j
Herbert L. Satterlec. Fred Grelner, j
the Erie county Wader, Is keeping his ,
own counsels. Jn Monroe county Ueorgc !
W. Aldildge. whose Influence extends far
beyond the contlncs of that political sub
division, Is reported to bo ifavorablo to
Lowden. Reports from Syracuse and
Onondaga arc thatTnc Wood sentiment
Former Senator William J. Tully, who
has much Influence In the Southern tier,
Is on active friend ot Lowden. In
Chautauqua county a club for Senator
Irvine I Ltnroot of Wisconsin ban been
formed by Mayor Samuel A. Carlson of
Jamestown and Ernest L. Cawcroft, for
mer member of tho old Progressive
party. It is said, however, that mie of
the men slated as a delcgnto from that
district Is for Wood, with tho oUier
Sentiment In the portli counties Is de
clared to be running for Wood, but for
mer Representative I W. Emerson
brother of former State fienator James
A. Emerson of Warren county, li mak
ing a great campaign for Lowden In
that part of tho State,
In the cities, as well as In some of
the country districts, great s-tresa was
laid In the report of the county chair
men upon the return to sane business
conditions. One leader phrased tho W.'O
Issue thus: "Restoration nf nn orderly
and constitutional form of government.
Instead of n personal government, such
ns wo havo had for seven years; tho
solving of the Industrial relationship btf
twecn labor and capital to the end that
there may bo n better understanding
and that production may bo Increased;
reduction In the expenses of govern
ment, all of which will lead to a reduc
tion In the cost cf living."
"Americanism and the maintenance of
law and order" would be the high spot
In the campaign In the opinion ot an
."One hundred per cent. Americanism,"
declared another, "and a President who
will protect American honor, American
property and American lives."
"Shall constitutional government be
preserved?" Was the way ono leader
Thrased It. "Perhaps I should have said
restored and preserved."
"Tho correction ot thoroughly disor
ganized business conditions," "Tho In
(ompetent. extravagant, wasteful, auto
cratic Wilson administration" were other
expressions of what Is at the forafront
In Republican minds In Now York State.

Idea in his county one Republican leader
