Hughes and his campaign party arrived In town early yesterday sa * morning over the New Tork Central. The dc ? candidate was pretty well tired out after dl his week's whirl through the state and he a t- kla In Waof IT.n/3 av?mifi VS Il MU1IICU ?/ Xiao 1IVUIG til T1 OOk ^ for a full day's rest. bl ^ Mr. Hughes in the course of the week de- ^ t iivered fourteen political speeches in nine , counties of the state?Westchester, Wayim f* * Brie. Ontario, Tates, Seneca, Herkimer, j* * Montgomery and Fulton. Sft As expressed in the statement which he ' Vl made on Saturday night, Mr. Hughes 1* h well pleased with the results of his first ^ up-state tour. The thing that impressed klilm most, as It did other persons who made ? + foroo *-y,rx nf +V.O r?vr?lt amOTUT I old line democrats against the Hearst P e, ' candidacy. th * I In the country districts and In cities like nc * i Buffalo, where Hearst Is badly tangled In sj( ^ the local situation, the defection in the ? democratic ranks. Judged from the assur- w, * ances which came to Mr. Hughes, is reX markably large?a good deal larger, In fact, ^ than the republican candidate or his cam . paign managers expected. But In manufac- _ * turlng cities, where Hearst?has managed to % steer clear of local factional fights?cities ell ? like Oloversvllle, Johnstown, Amsterdam he * and Little Falls?the Hughes party found a w, ^6 . dangerously strong sentiment for the opI posing 'candidate. It , Good Crowds From Workshops. fr ^ Good crowds turned out from the facto* ? - . i i. . if. U.,?han P? ^ nes in an tnese cities iu gx~?:t;i xi?l. ^ ^ and there was a generous display of en- ge ? thuslasm, but at the same time the general th J conditions .pointed unmistakably to a l'| * strong leaning toward Hearst. In Little gl ? Falls, for Instance, several persons familiar tr k with the political situation estimated that in fe two-thirds of the factory employes would j" cast their ballots for the Independence a1 leaguer, and _thls, it was said would repre- 0E * sent a very "considerable defection in the * republican ranks. A straw vote, taken on ^ one floor of Stafford & Colz's factory, gave r Hearst 23 votes, Hugees 8, with three _ * blanks. That, It was said, la a pretty fair an * indication of the Hearst strength among ro V the Little Falls factory employes. Ci * John A. Cole, chairman of the Fulton m( * county committee, professed to have no l# fear for Hughes' candidacy In his county. *" t He admitted that there is apparently a tn , strong Hearst sentiment just at present 1 % among the factory workmen In Gloversvllle Fl and Johnstown. But there was, he said, * the same sort of talk back in the Bryan ?* * campaign, yet when the votes were counted ro ^ It was found that Fulton was eafely In the republican column. He expected that the Ml * democrats who would bolt Hearst In Ful- Sa A ton county would more than offset the votes W( ^ which he will get from any defection in the J , republican ranks. That seemed to be the 5,r * rock of hope for most of the campaign leaders In counties where Hearst sentiment ar , prevails among the city factory hands. *D * They are looking for a tremendous vote rn k for Hughes In the rural districts. po Flocked to Mr. Hughes. 1ft It Is Mr. Hughes' desire to spend as much ' Ik time as possible from now until the end of 8'J the campaign In the manufacturing centers, fri ^ In the enemy's stronghold. There has been ^ a lot of criticism among up-state leaders ^ over the Itinerary of the trip which has ov If Just been completed. The candidate, these ^ _ men argued, has practically been wasting th his time in going through republican cu strongholds like Ontario, Wayne and Yates counties. They urged Mr. Hughes to strike J?' out for the manufacturing cities for the remalnder of his campaign, aiul It Is likely it" that this Is what will be d<Jne: It certainly it. will If the desire of the candidate prevails.. At Penn Yan the democrats literally qv flocked to Mr. Hughes with assurances of their support and votes. It was the same way In the other western New York rural [n districts. At Geneva, Ontario county, the to democratic mayor of the city. Arthur Rose. TO headed the parade In honor of the oandl- j date; at Canandaigua Mr. Hughes was told jj that a Hughes democratic club with thirty- ar six members was to be formed: at Seneca Falls and even in the small manufacturing cities in the central part of the state demo- j crats joined with republicans In extending br their best wishes to the candidate. It was noticed, though, that In the manufacturing 11J cities it was usually the more prosperous- ar lOOKing aem^crais wnu aceppeu luiwaiu m vt support of the republican candidate. la A Better Campaigner. dl Mr. Hughes returned to New York a much better campaigner than when he started. Persons who heard him before he ca started on the trip gave It as their opinion that he would surprise New Yorkers the yc next time he appeared before them. A tb week's experience before up-state audi- br ences has taken a good many kinks out of his delivery, and he goes at things now In the real campaign hammer and tonga way. As Job Hedges expressed it frequently to the up-state audiences: "Mr. Hughes Q Is learning." The trip up state had Its amusing Incidents, and nobody enjoyed them more than S[ did Mr. Hughes. In the first place there was Job Hedges, who referred to himself , as "the whole burnt offering" of the cam- 1 rxolrrn Tf nroa li ia <nK t A mcilra T-fncrlia* W( xl tt aa 11 JO juu iu munv iui appear "human," and he did It in the best at natured way possible, until the chairman j,e of the Geneva meeting Introduced him as , follows: "A humorist and a Brooklyn polltlcltn, ?* dyed in the wool, who has touched every ty city In the state?Job E. Hughes." Mr. ni Hedges didn't mind being called a Brook- jj, lyn politician, and he would stand for the name Hughe9, but he was compelled in common honor to protest against being ha called a humorist And furthermore he G< hadn't touched every city in the state. "He y had been touched in every city," he said. m fu A FAVORABLE COMPARISON. of ] Exports of Meat, Breadstuffs, Oils and to Dairy Products for Nine Months. ha Exports of meat, breadstuffs, dairy pro- re ducts, oils, etc., have Increased steadily la ye the past year.

Fulton Cutig and a friend. Louis Lleber yesterday ternoon, to avoid a collision that would i almost certainly fatal, threw his own life to the balance and was killed. As he rounded a sharp curve on the steep *cent at express train speed Lleber saw e Cutting landaulet climbing the mounIn road just a short distance below.

Moment of Terrible Suspense. rhe high-powered landaulet in which Miss jtting and- a young woman friend were Imblng the tortuous road on their way me to Tuxedo Park from Central Valley as driven by a chauffeur named Dunn, ley had no warning of danger until Lien's runaway racing car whirled into sight om above, coming at terrific speed. There was no chance of the two cars issing, and it seemed to be a question of hnthor tho r? f thA fl vinp rv-i cpr U'hllld nd his car crashing over the ledge Into e valley below or would smash the Cutng automobile from hlB path. Chauffeur Dunn also acted Instantly. He wuted wildly to Miss Cutting and her lend to hold on for their lives, and, applyg full power, sent the big landaulet crashg through the rocks and underbrush up e mountain side until It swerved against tree, and was held there by the axle of le of the front wheels. Car Suspended at Edge of Road. rhe wrecked racing car was lying baliced over the valley on the edge of the ad below, within a few feet of where the itung automoDiie naa ien xne tu?u uui a iment before, and Lleber. even at the sacIce of his life, had prevented a greater igedy only by a fraction of a second. iV. A.

Dunn carried Lieber to the office of Dr. . E. Wise, but the brave man died In his ms. "Are the Ladies SafeP" Lieber had regained consciousness for a ief moment when the wrecked car was ted from his body. He looked about him id asked: "Are the ladies?safe?" in a >ice that sank to a whisper. Then he repsed into unconsciousness. He probably ed without realizing that the two cars id not crashed together, an end that he id sacrificed his life to prevent. . After the wreckage of the heavy racing r had been Dulled to a Doint on the road here it was no longer a menace to travel r.
