Seven Seeking Gubernatorial
domination Confidently
Awnit Tucstlny Vote.
Bugbeo Seems to Lead in G. 0.
p. Contest Democrats
Favor Edwards.
' 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
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.

Governor will carry the State by a safo

Theological seminaries opening within
the next few days report enrolments In
many instances 50 per cent above last
year, and in some cases quite up to the
numbers before the war. Union Sem

ports an experience which It regards as
phenomenal. For tho first time In Us
history it' is charging tuition. Hereto
fore tuition has been free. This year It
Is 3.150. Yet registration exceeds nil ex
pectation, so It was said at the seminary
yesterday, and some twenty different
bodies and many States are represented.
At the General Seminary, Chelsea
Square, there Is expected a 60 per cent.
Increase over last year, although the
seminary curriculum Is In a transitory
stage and & large enrolment is not en
couraged. The changes are made to
modernise the courses and to put them
on a unit basis as tn the case of colleges.

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
"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.

ICImkt Repeats Promise to Oust
Jersey Utility Hoard.
Warren C. King, who wants to win
the Republican nomination for Governor
In rew Jersey on Tuesday, has rcit
erated his promises to remove present
members of the 'Board of Public Utility
Commissioners in his State If he Is
elected. He declared before his cam
paign league In the Robert Treat Hotel
tn Newark last night that he was con
fident of nomination, election and the
overwhelming success of the entire Re
publican ticket in November. He said
In part:
"The people of New Jersey during the
past week have had the oportunlty of
actual experience with the new trolley
zone system, complacently acquiesced In
by the Board of Public Utility Commis
sioners at the Instance of the Public
Service Corporation. Tho system, with
its extortionate rates and attendant in
conveniences to the public. Is the cllmnx
of a long series of outrageous practices
ou tho part of the corporation affecting
every man, woman and child In the
State of New Jersey and which the
Board of Public Utility Commissioners
has either been powerless to prevent or
has Itself engendered."
