Boston, ^oy.- H-.rIn one of the hot
test -ejections' Massachusetts has ever
had a ^strongest protest was registered
this week against
Lodge Hears From the "boss" of the
republican a
Voters here, Senator Hen
ry Cabot Lodge,
Of the Bay State for, altho Henry
M. Whitney, the
democratic candidate .for lieutenant
governor, failed of election by less than
2,000 votes, his victory over Lodge was
almost as great as if he had won. Gen
eral Guild, the republican candidate,
who was elected governor, had a plural
ity of more than 23,000, which indicates
that at least 21,000 republicans voted,
against the republican candidate for
lieutenant governor, Mr. Draper, who
had practically dropped put of .sight
after the issue had narrowed down to
Lodge and Wliitney and the .question of
reciprocity. As it is, the democrats are
not satisfied with the returns and will
demand a recount.
That the sentiment in favor of freer
trade relations with Canada is becoming
more pronounced in Massachusetts is
Bhown by the fact that a normal repub
lican plurality of between 30,000 and
40,000 has been cut down to 2,000, and it
is very possible that if the stories told
about' Mr. Whitney's alleged transac
tions in the legislature fifteen years ago
had not had influence with the voters
in the small country towns in the west
ern and central parts of the state, he
would have been elected without ques
The democratic vote in Boston shows
that the feeling here is especially strong
against Senator Lodge and his tariff
views. Mr. Whitney had a plurality of
more than 25,000 over Mr. Draper and
8,000 more than the head of his own
ticket. The figures in Boston as well
as in the rest of the state show the
feeling of the people on this one ques
tion of reciprocity, and it is now gen
erally conceded that the wonderful suc
cess of Governor Douglas last year was
due not entirely to unique advertising
methods, and a desire on the part of a
great many republicans to show their
disapproval of some of the acts of Gov
ernor Bates.
A church built at Fairhaven, this
state, with money furnished by Henry
H. Sogers, the Standard Oil magnet, has
been the subject of considerable contro
versy here, critics asserting that archi
tecturally it is neither one thing nor an
other, and the phrase "tainted archi
tectur e" has been coined in connection
with it. The attack has been returned
by several admirers of Mr. Eogers, in
cluding Oscar Fay Adams, and what
the people here have not learned about
church architecture since the contro
versy started is not worth knowing.
,Thc great surprise of the election was
the victory of John B. Moran, an inde
pendent candidate for district attorney
of Suffolk county,

Stain, who with Oliver Cromwell spent

ent occupant of the office, who had the
nomination of both parties. Moran is a
young lawyer who has always been an
independent in politics, and for years
has been advocating reforms of one sort
or another without anybody paying
much attention to him. His candidacy
in the present instance was taken more
or less as a joke,, and Moran himself did
not expect to be elected, altho for sev
eral weeks he has been stumping the
county, and addressing large audiences.
What he said was of such a character,,

When a police
iudge, Dewey's decisions attracted wide
attention. He was always the friend of
the man in the dock, and stated repeat
edly that he could not always believe 'a
policeman on oath. Little attention was
paid to his candidacy until a few days
ago, when those who voted for Moran
began to say that Moran and Dewey
would make a great team, and if Dewey
should be elected mayor, there is no
doubt that Boston would "have' one of
the most unique administrations in its
history. The contest at present is be
tween Edward J. Donovan and John F.
Fitzgerald. They began to hold meet
ings the night of the state election, and
for excitement that election promises to
dwindle to a-sideshow. Lomasney, the
boss who is behind Donovan, has been
received national attention thru hja at
tack on William E. Hearst in'congress.
Lomasney has retaliated by accusing
Sullivan of graft in connection with
school-house site, as well as drawing-his
father-in-law into the Fenway scandal.
Captain John S. Damrell, ex-chief of
the Boston fire department and for
nearly thirty years. building commis

time at Ms summer home in Dover. Cap

New England.

ducted was influenced by politicians,
that the police were hot enforcing the
law against illegal* liquor selling, that
efforts to have investigated scandals at
the city hall, had been frustrated, and
other things too numerous to mention.
Moran made big capital out of the dress
suit case mystery. He accused the po
lice of allowing illegal ^practitioners to
carry on business unmolested, and de
clared that if elected he would close
every place of this kind in the city.
Some of the ministers "publicly com
mended him for his stand,'and this, no
doubt, had something to do with the
vote he received. The newspapers
printed little about him except what
appeared in his advertisements, and
these were warm, enough for all pur
poses. He spent his own money freely,
and his friends .say .almost went broke
on campaign expenses. Until a few
years ago he had a large practice, but
owing to some difficulty he had with, the
then district attorney, he declared that
he would never again practice in the
criminal courts of Suffolk county. He
adhered to this for several years and, it
is said, that a large practice dwindled
considerably in consequence. It was
then that he-began to attack the dis
trict attorney's office and he has kept
it up consistently. Besides losing part
of his practice he invested "heavily, all
he had in fact, in an invention in which
he had confidence. After a long and
trying experience the invention proved
all he claimed for it, and his returns
have since been very large. It was part
of this money he spent in his present
fight. In his advertisements he declared
that he would do* for Boston what Folk
did for St. Louis-and Jerome for New
York, and since his election he has reit
erated these statements. The result has
been more uneasiness among certain
classes in Boston than could probably
have resulted from the election of any
other man. Moran. is ambitious. He is
a fighter, and nobody doubts that he
will make things in Boston livelier than
they have been at any time in a great
many years. It will fall iipon him to
try the persons arrested in connection
with the. dress-suit case affair, and the
Fenway contracting frauds will also be
taken up by him.
