Kill the Dandruff Qermi
Modern science has discovered that dandruff is
caused by a germ that dig* up the scalp in scales,
as it burrows down to the roots of the hair, where
it destroys the Irair's vitality, causing falling hair
and. ultimately, baldness. After l'rof. I'una of
Hamburg. Germany, discovered tile dandruff germ,
nil efforts to find a remedy failed until the great
laboratory discovery was made which resulted in
Newbrota Ilerpiclde. It alone of all other hair
preparations kills the dandruff germ. Without
dandruff hair grows luxuriantly. "Destroy the
cause, you remove the effect." Sold by leading
druggists. Send 10c. In stamps for sample to The

Braves Alarmed Over the
Political Situation.
History of the Murphy-McLaughlin.
Bow?MeClellan Evades Some
Pointed Questions.
Hpcclal Correspondence of The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, October 7, 1003.
There Is no joy In Tammany Hall over the
evident Intention of Boss Murphy to con
tinue Grout and Fornes on his ticket. Tam
many men now freely admit that putting
Grout and Fornes ofC the fusion ticket will
result In the defeat of Tammany at the
polls. It developes that the plan to indorse
them never was npproved except by a few
leaders who do what Murphy tells them
and ask no questions. The hungry office
seekers in the organization are disgruntled.
They realize that if Grout should be re- I
elected on the Tammany ticket, or on all
tickets, there would be few changes in the ^
finance department.
The Grout and Fornes Incident Isn't all
that is making Tammany men feel unpleas
ant. There Is an able-bodied belief in Tam
many circles that Murphy will at the last
moment turn down Randolph Guggenheimer
as the candidate for borough president and
go outside of the organization for some
other man. The braves feel sore. They
think that the indorsement of Grout and
Fornes was sufficient deference to respecta
bility, and that the powerful office of presi
dent of the borough should go to a mem
ber of the organization In good standing.
Murphy did not add to the comfort of his
followers by denying the rumor that is be
ing quietly circulated around tije hall. That
he did not deny it it Is figured means that
he will go outside; if he had had a Tam
many man in mind he would have denied
the report quickly.
The Murphy-McLaughlin Fight.
Among the developments of the day was
the real reason for the differences between
Boss Murphy and Boss McLaughlin. It
dates back to an "outing" of Congressman
"Tim" Sullivan at which Bird S. Coler was
the guest of honor. At this "outing" "Big
Tim" suggested the nomination for con
troller to Coler, who said he wanted six
hours for deliberation and consultation with
his friends. At the end of six hours he sent
word to Sullivan that McLaughlin refused
to let him take the nomination.
McLaughlin had another candidate and
he wanted Tammany to take him up, but
Tammany refused McLaughlin tried to
force his point And Murphy sent word to
him that he could take h s organization and
go away with it from liere?or words to
that effect. That Is why McLaughlin is
"sore," and that Is the beginning of the
present tangle in affairs between the two
political bosses.
Reports have reached the Wiiloutrhby
street headquarters that Tammany influ
ences are at work in the assembly districts
to d'srupt the McLaughlin organization.
One rumor was to the effect that Tammany
would spend fciTiO.OOO in the borough to pro
tect the ticket there.
There never was a campaign?not even
the celebrated Van Wyck three-cornered
fight?where there was so much uncer
tainty. A betting commissioner who has
handled much Tammany money in other
1 campaigns said today that men who had
placed money in his hands a few days ago
J to bet on MeClellan had notified him to
w.iit until next week unless he can set
odds. So far no odds on Low have been of
fered and little betting has been done. The
few small bets placed have been at even
money. The comm ssioner who said he had
been told to wait sa'd that all the money
that had been placed In his hands came
from Individuals, anfl not from a syndicate.
It has been the custom to get up a Tam
many syndicate to bet on their candidate,
and it was reported that one had been or
ganized for this campaign with $100,<XKJ In
its treasury.
MeClellan Chafes at Belay.
MeClellan is chafing at the delay In open
ing the campaign. He spends nearly the
entire day answering letters. Almost every
representative on the democratic side of
the House of Representatives has written
to him a letter of congratulation. He ex
pects to make about fifty speeches before
election day, being prepared to speak at
several places on the same evening If ar
rangements can be made for him to do so.
The principal issue on which the fusion
ists will fight their campaign is the reform
of the police department. No city adminis
tration ever had a more difficult task than
the reorganization of the New YorW police
force. The management of this department
was the crowning insolence of the Van
Wyck administration. And this was an ad
ministration that had floated Into power on
a campaign fund largely replenished by the
corrupt elements of the community, the
fund to which Timothy D. Sullivan and
Perclval Nngle boasted that they had con
tr.buted thousands of dollars. It was Rich
ard Croker who raised that fund. It was
he who had promised that the town should
be wide open. It was he who, early In the
Van Wyck administration, diree'ed the
mayor to bo constitute the bi-partisan po
lice board that Chief John McCullugh
should be deposed and Will am S. Devery
should be Installed to direct Tammany s
nefarious business.
Once dismissed from the force for cor
ruption. the courts had reinstated Devery
on a technicality. He had been Indicted
five times for failure to suppress disorderly
houses. This was Tammany's selection as
head of the police, and under him vice held
high carnival In New York. The light to
violate alrrfost any law was regularly ped
Devery High in Tammany's Favor.
In Tarnmanyi Devery was then held in
the greatest honor. At the time when de
cent citizens were expressing extreme dis
gust at what they callejJ, Devery's prostitu
tion of the police force for his vile ends
Richard Croker proposed and John F. Car
roil seconded him for'membership In the
Democratic Club, and Mayor Van Wyck
capped the whole proceeding Jjy declaring
that "Devery is the best chief of police New
York ever had."
It was Devery and Devery ism that the
public, when it elected the fusion ticket,
commanded Mayor Low to'destroy at once.
So on the first day of the hew administra
tion Devery's head went off, and so did
that of Tammany Commissioner Murphy.
But not much headway was .made against
systematized vice and protection \mtil Gen.
Francis V. Greene was made chief of po
lice. The commissioner, sought at the very
start to cut the cords which bound together
the so-called "sj'stem" of blackmail. These
cords were the wardmen of the various pre
cincts. who generally acted as colle(*tors~
for their captains. Wardman BIssert was.
convicted and sent to state's prison; and
every one of the 306 wardmen were sent by
Gen. Greene back to patrol duty. They were
transferred to precincts separated by a con
siderable distance from those in which they
had been serving, with positive Instructions
that not one of them should be given a de
tail of any kind for the period of ninety
At the end of the ninety days those who
were efficient und upright, and were espe
cially qualified for detective work, were al
lowed. on the application of captains, to be
again detailed where they had served dur
ing the preceding five years.
Systematized and organised blackmail was
thus broken up. While probably there still
exist sporadic cases of blackmail on the
part of individuals, "the system" has been
destroyed by the present administration,
and It will be cried on every stump during
the campaign.
The so-called "finest" is today under the
administration of Gen. Greene really de
serving of Its name. And MeClellan. who
has been repeatedly asked the question,
"When you are mayor, if you are elected.
will you remove Commissioner Greene?"
has declined to commit himself.
Thousands of situations have been ob
tained through the want columns of The
St. and Pa. Ave.

Embezzler Ward's Punishment Light.
A dispatch from Sioux City, Iowa, yester
day says; Thomas F. Ward, vice president
of tha Lemars National Bank, who pleaded
guilty to embezzlement In the sum of $13,
000, was today sentenced to pay a fine of
$12,000 and to stay in jail until the amount
is paid, by Judge McPherson in the Superior
Court. It was discovered today that the
sentence given Mr. Ward will amount to his
serving just thirty days in jail. There is a
special federal statute providing that when
a convict is subjected to a fine which he
cannot pay, he may go before a United
States commissioner after serving thirty
days, show that he has not property sub
ject to execution in excess of $20. and obtain
a legal discharge. >
