4-f 28 JERSEY RACE ENDS; ALL CLAIM YICTORY Seven Seeking Gubernatorial domination Confidently Awnit Tucstlny Vote. Tit ACTION IS BIO ISSUE Bugbeo Seems to Lead in G. 0. p. Contest Democrats Favor Edwards. HARVARD REOPENS WITH OLD TEACHERS ' Spe&al Dtipatch to Tb Sps. TMNTOtf, Sept 20. One of the hottest polttlca.1 primary campaigns In the Stato virtually came to a close to-day wllh Mven candidates each expressing; con fidence that he will be nominated for Governor. The decision of the voters will be rendered, at tho primaries Tues day, but as the polls will remain open until 9 o'clock at night results -will hardly be obtainable until the. next day unless the contest In each party Is a ijnuch more one sided affair than present conditions indicate. So many complications are involved In the bitter struggles in both parties that an accurate prediction of the outcome is unusually difficult. The situation as viewed by politicians generally seems be that State Comptroller Newton A. K. Butbce holds the whip hand In the Re publican raco and that State Senator .Kd ward I. Edwards of Jersfcy City will cap. ture the Democratic pennant The suc cess of Mr. Bugbeo in the preliminary struggle is looked upon as more certain than that of Senator Edwards. who Is ''now confronted by a strong undercur rent of sentiment In favor of James R. Nugent of Essex county. The Nugent movement admittedly has been gaining strength rapidly during the lut two weeks, and political leaders who a month ago could see nothing but the nomination of eenator Edwards are now worried to an extent that many of them are unwilling to admit Mr. Nugent has made personal liberty his watchword from the outset of the campaign and the lisue has proved a popular one to voters In each party. Spectacular Features nt Finish. Spectacular featur.es haw been added to the closing days 6t the campaign by 'the mob violence attending, the operation of the xone fare system on Public Ser vice lines which became effective last Sunday. Resentment In many quarters against the toning system has quick ened the Interest in public utility regu lation as an issue and has prompted sev eral of the seven candidates to declare strongly In favor of some change In .the present system. This has taken the form lirgely ut attacks upon the Public Util ity Con'.atision as now constituted, and more specifically upon its action In sane. Honing the zone fare plan. On the Republican side Warren C. Kink of Bound Brook has made public utility regulation almost the sole Issue from tile start of his campaign. The un popularity of the ronlng plan has given to Mr. King an opportunity of whleh he has been quick to avall.hlmself, although with doubtful effect l!r. Nugent, on the Democratic side, slso has como out squarely against the toning plan, this belng practically his flrst declaration on public utility regula .u n t.uiia -fr V-AwnrAn had al ready made the subject-one of his cam'-1 ralgn planks and. like Mr. King, ue clareS for an elective rather than an ap rolntlve public utility commission. Views at the various political head quarters as to the result of the pri maries were as divergent to-day as the uindldates In the field. All eyes were inm.a tn Essex and Hudson as prob- My the decisive battleground for both parties. A striking example of the wide dl fsrslty of opinion as to results was offered by the situation at the Edwards and Nugent headquarters. Mr. Edwards claimed that he will carry nineteen of the twenty-one counties In the State. Although not mentioning the two.whlch he' might lose, he clearly had in mind Kssex and Passaic, the former the home county of Mr. Nugent and the' latter one In which Mr. Nugent has admittedly strong following. The Edwards forces laim majorities of 20,000 in Jersey City, 6,000 in Hoboken. 3,000 In Ba jonne and 6,500 In North Hudson, a total of 31,500, and a net majority of not lees than 25,000 In the entire county. They would concede only 5,000 majority for Mr. Nugent in Essex county. Ctnlnia Made by JTnarent. As against these claims -Mr. Nugent himself predicted that he would get practically an even break with Mr. Ed wards in Hudson and that Essex will Klve him not less than 10.000 or 12,000 Plurality, with the probability of a higher figure being reached. Tho Nu itent followers figure the Essex leader wtU cut Into the Edwards vote In Jersey City and Uayonne. that Mr. Nugent will have pluralities In the West Hudson towns, such as Harrison, Kearny and East Newark which, coupled with a considerable sentiment for him In the North Hudson cities, will reduce Mr. Edwards's vaunted plurality In Hudson to a minimum- Large pluralities are ipredioted by Mr. Jugent and his followers in jussex, l'as sale and Union. Mr. Nugent also eX' pects pluralities in the south Jersey counties and alone: the shore, where an active campaign has been made In his behalf Ills friends to-day predated he will carry twenty counties, conceding only Hudson to Mr. Edwards. At Bugbee headquarters the claim was made that Mr. Bugbeo will carry the State by about 30,000 plurality over his nearest opponent on the Republican Bine. Nineteen counties were clnlmed for Mr. Bugbee, th exceptions being Essex, where Thomas L. Raymond, former Mayor of Newark, is expected to head the list, and Union, the home county of Gov. William N. Runyon. The Bugbee followers concede to Mr. Raymond a plurality of not more than 3,500 In Essex and admit that Gov. Runyon will carry (jnlon by from 4.000 to 4.600. Estimates at the Bugbee headquarters give Mr Bugbee the following plurali ties In the various counties: Atlantic, 2.500 Dergcn, 2,000 Burlington. 1,000; tamden, 4,000; Cape May, 600; Cumber land. 1.000 ; Gloucester. 1,000; Hudson, 4 000 ; Hunterdon. 600: Mercer. 7.000: Middlesex, 600 ; Monmouth, 1,500; Mor- n. a.tigo- ocean, 500 ; Passaic, 1.6B0; balem. 600 Somerset, 600 ; Sussex, 500; Warren, 600. From the resulting total " 34.000 ib deducted the 4,000 conceded to uov Runyon In Union upon the as sumption that he will be the second man on the Republican ticket. No estimates were obtainable In Gov, Kunyon's headquarters at Westfleld. Vhere the ftrftdlctlnn wn vnntlA that tha Governor will carry the State by a safo Margin. Gov, Runyon has not had the "canisauon backing of his competitors, relies upon the conservative sontl merit of Republican voters generally, ouplefl with his record as a member of the Legislature and as acting Governor, " iang mm the nomination, No estimates were available at the Raymond headquarters, where Victory wa also claimed. It was predicted, however that Mr. Raymond will carry Eitex hy a large "majority, that he will be auc-.easful in Paaialc Hudson and a number of south Jersey counties, which I 'iaa been touring during the last few lietla.

Johnson, president of the great Rolls Royco firm, who Is In New York on a ten day visit "Labor at home." he said In the Van derbllt Hotel yesterday, "s coming to the realisation that It is tied up with tho doBtlnles of England as a wholo and that England's destines depend upon one thing above all others pro duction. During the war British labor, In common with labor all over the con tinent came to a realisation of Its power. For a time there was a tendency among certain radical elements 'to bet Have that they could get along alone, without the aid of capital. The wiser elements are beginning to see that It's not possible. "Tills change has come but recently. We are by no means settled on a peace basis as yet, any more than you are hero, or any place else. ,But we are coming to It In a very satisfying way., "Labor during the war realised the abuses under which it had lived. It got a grip on tho power to remedy those abuses. And tho abuses were very real. But we're In a way to remedy them, and labor Is beginning to be satisfied that it will get Its Just deserts. Also, and this Is the most important thing of all, labor Is realising that .unices It pro duces there will be nothing for It to get deserts. Just or otherwise, out of." There is one thing about which Mr. Johnson is Inexpressibly proud. That la tho part played by the Rolls-Royce en gine In British aviation. "Is your company keeping up its avia tion activities in peace times?" he was asked. "The .London-Paris service," he replied, "Is completely powered by Rolls-Royce and It runs with the regularity of a train, sometimes one and sometimes two planes each way a day with mall, light freight and passengers. We are specializing on the goods and mall, however, and letting tho passenger business develop of Itself." Mr. Johnson evinced great Interest tn the progress of the Lawson air liner which has Just started on Its transcon tinental trip from Roosevelt Field with Its first stop In Washington. The directing head of one of Eng land's most important motor works ,1s confident of the generally sound condi tion of business In England. 'Capital L ready to Invest" he said. "Any man who'll get out a decent pros pectus can get all the money he wants." He expressed no surprise at the re ports that Lloyd George might be found at the headiof the radical and labor ele ments In a new party, but evinced the belief that such a party would And con ditions too settled to upset the business or the country. - ' Tho British workman," he said, "is a pretty sane thinking fellow as a rule. He's' started thinking again and he's rapidly coming to the conclusion that production Is the first thing he must at tend to If his Ills are to be remedied." Mr. Johnson satis on the Cedric on Wednesday after ten days consultation with the business representatives of the ltons-lloyco people In New York. In connection with his visit it had been rumored that the Rolls-Royce Is to enter extensively Into American business. Tills report Mr. Johnson refused to discuss. 16.
