AND SAVINGS Com?ir smd IK itoaefti. TWO FACTIONS JOIN TO DOWN NEWMAN (Continued from First Pa^e.) will raise the banner for the Costello people if the matter comes to the floor. E. A. Newman says It will never reach the floor. A Star man saw him In tne Belvedere this morning: "The other fellows charge that you traded your vote for Parker so that they would all vote for you in the contest last night?" said the reporter. "Tommyrot." said Mr. Newman; it was unanimous. I have always been a Bryan man, and I am a Bryan man, but that vote last night on the chairman matter was not a test of Bryan s strength. In fact, I was not voting against Bryan. I did not trade my vote ?that's the talk of a defeated candi date." , . The Costello and Darr factions claim that the national committeemen who last night served on various subcommittees to decide contests, all agreed to stand by one another, and that Mr. Newman sat in one subcommittee, while another contested candidate sat in the Newman controversy, and that the two patched up a "tickle me and I'll tickle you" com pact. When Mr. Newman was asked about It he laughed and said, Not a chance." May Desert Clark. At any rate it appears that the New man delegation instructed for Clark will not stick to Clark If his votes begin to drop off. "As long as Clark has a show we'll vote for him," said Mr. Newman, "but we think we will be released from our obligation If he loses all chance of win ning. After that we will vote for the best man." ^ . . "It is too bad that New York Is such a big figure in national politlce." This is what Perry Belmont, delegate from the state of New York, said to a Star correspondent today: , . "New York ought to be of Interest merely to local politicians. There Is too much business in the state, and it is too great a community to have the fate of the nation decided by whatever way her vote is cast. I am tired of hearing that New York can be bought or sold. "Hjow will New York vote-for Clark? asked The Star man. "Don't ask me; I'm tired of that ques 11 john?W. Kern of Indiana walked by: "There." said Mr. Belmont. "Is a good man. I would like to vote for a man Mr.t*Beimont was being escorted a?*?5 the lobby of the hotels by W. F. Hart of Washington. District Joins In Alliance. After a caucus In E. A. Newman's head quarters Just before the convention opened today the District of Columbia delegation decided to enter a flve-handed alliance with the territories and become j an important factor in the voting. The Newman delegation, therefore, will vote with the delegates from Alaska, Hawaii, Porto Rico and the Philippines. This is a total of thirty votes. Action of National Committee. After hearing the entire District democ racy scored mercilessly by Henry B. Da vis, who pleaded that the Darr delegates are the only representatives of a vote clear of fraud and trickery, the national I committee seated the Newman delega tion. The announcement was made at 12 o'clock last night after an hour and a half of talk and after an hour of delib eration. The winners are E. A. Newman, P. T. Moran, Hugh F. Harvey, Samuel E. Lewis, John O. Campbell and Bernard G. Brown, delegates, and William Neale. John Keady. Lewis P. Shoemaker, Dr. N. B. Shade. Eli Sheetz and F. L. Slddons, alternates. This meads, first of all, that E. A. New man will succeed himself as national committeeman. It was against him that much of the Costello fight was directed. It also means in deference to local senti ment that Clark will haxe six votes from the District, but right up to the last the .Costello men declared the Newman heart beats stronger for Har mon than for Clark. They also spoke bit terly of Newman's voting for Parker. "Bryan made him?now see how he treats Bryan," they added. Contest Protracted. The contest of the District's three dele gations was long and bitter. The sub committee of the national committee which heard It was composed of Messrs. Williams, Mississippi; Heed, New Hamp shire, and Johnson, South Dakota. The District's representation was the largest at the committee hearing, took more time, mode more noise, divulged more personal bitterness than all the other contests After it was over. National Committee man Williams said: "If I had my way I would throw out every delegate to the convention from the District of Columbia- It is the worst mess I ever heard of. The democracy over there must be in a horrible state. The announcement was a bitter piovt to the Costello factionlsts. who claimed to have carried practically the entire city and who were Instructed for Clark first, last and all the time. The fact that two ballot boxes were seized by the police in the recent primaries l? alone responsible for the seating of the Newman delega tion. In those two ballot boxes were the only votes counted. The others were never counted by the democratic) central committee of the District of Columbia. Those ballot boxes which were seised by the police in a riot happened to give Newman a majority. The national committee, despairing or anv other way out of the difficulty, it is said, decided the whole thing on those ^U^the'openlng of the hearing Mr. Wil liams asked for a statement from the chairman of the democratic central com mittee and half a dozen men began to talk before J. Fred Kelley could be drag ged from his place by the door. He was officiating behind a deputy sergeant-at arms commission. When he arrived he had a large bundle of papers and am davits, which a)iPPed to the floor later and caused a near fight between Mr. Kelley and Mr. Colpoys, a leading Cos tello democrat. Xelley's Statement. Mr. Kelley explained that the late pri maries in the District had been held after the regular preliminaries had been ar ranged and that everything was regular. "Is there any dispute about the legality of these formalities?" asked Mr. Reed. "None at all" shouted half a dozen eager contestants. "Then why wasn't the city convention called?" asked Mr. Williams. "Now there's the meat in the cocoanut. Mr Kelley replied. He went on to tell about the riots and the hallot boxes which were held by the police. He said the committee had refused to count bal lots, but took the certificate of the Judges of elections. I "Then " said Mr. Kelley. "I refused to go farther unless the committee counted all the ballots. Alter that we refused to sign certificates, and my contention Is no election was held." Says Rules Were Violated. William McK. Clayton, secretary of the democratic central committee of the Dis trict of Columbia told the subcommittee of the national democratic committee that the Costello people had violated all the rules, that they had ignored the regula tions of the central committee, and, attwr ?ainlng control, had ridden rvagh-shod over the old-time and old-line democracy., He charged that sample ballots had been V<"Who was In majority in thoee two bal lot boxes which were counted?" asked Mr. Williams. "The Newman democrats, said Mr. Clayton, who ended his argument by say ing the controlling element, the Costello faction, "did not want the committee to canvass the votes, because they could not afford to." _ . _ When Mr. Clayton Hat down John B.

He showed other signs of disapproval of Mr. Clayton's argument, and Mr. Williams called for order. "I charge that nearly all the Costello tickets are lnaocurate and defective," said Attorney F. L. Slddons, in opening his argument for the Newman faction. "Step by step," he said, "they disre garded the rules and regulations promul gated by the national committee for hold ing primaries." He was interrupted in his argument by a loud noise In one corner of the room, which, on investigation, was found to be a violent altercation between J. Fred Kelley and William S. Reilly. Both were accusing each other of being wrong about a certificate of election used In the recent democratic primary. Protest Bears 3,000 Names. When it was quieted Mr. Siddons pro ceeded and concluded by leaving a peti tion signed by 3,000 names protesting *?gainst the Beating of the Costello fac tion.' james Easby-Smith, speaking for the Costello democrats, referred to Messrs. Kelley and Clayton as ' uefeated candi dates," although they claimed, he said, to be disinterested witnesses. "We were not given a square deal in the third district," he said, "and I defy them to show any defect in the other nineteen districts where we had tickets." Then arose Attorney Henry E. Davis, with a two-edged sword, which he used to cut deep slashes in both the Newman and Costello tickets. He said there were irregularities and that the Costello fac tion. acting in a high-handed manner, had caused all the trouble. "There was not a vote counted In this election except those two in the boxes which had been seized by the police be cause of riots, and after they had been out of the possession of the proper offi cers of election they were not legal re ceptacles, nor did they contain legal bal lots." Scores the Factions. Mr. Davis scored the opposing factions mercilessly, .claiming that the Darr Mitchell tickets were the only clean, re spectable and truly democratic tickets in the field. Speaking of the Newman tick ets, he said: "And Newman stands before us stripped to the skin and with nothing to stand on." "Repeaters after repeaters voted," he continued, "and the check that should have been put on the tickets to prevent Repeating was cast to the winds. They wouldn't give us a Judge, nor a clerk, and our election papers were recom mended as material for a bonfire by them in their committee meeting. This contest shows the rottenest state of af fairs ever presented to a national com mittee. When it came time to hold a city convention, we went out, because no convention was held by the central com mittee. Mr. Jamison led .the way, and at that time Newman was with us. Now there is not a man on any other of the tickets who is qualified to be a candi date, and it would be like voting for an alien or a dead man to vote for any of them. Bump Convention Threatened. "When we got together, Newman stood us against the wall and declared that unless we divide the delegation and confirm him in his seat as national com mitteeman he would take his delegates away and hold a rump convention. New man slipped out. He escaped?where to, I know not. But when our men left the hall, we saw him coming back, and supposed they were coming in to meet again. "We are the only men who held a de cent convention, clean and free' from trickery. If you want to take a clean delegation you've got to take us. In the name of God, don't split it up. Either take us as a body or throw us out. It is because the national committee has been dividing these delegations that this sort of rottenness has been going on In the District for twenty years." E. G. WEDDINGS ARE RECALLED Two Licenses, Marked "Un used," Returned to Of ficials at City Hall. \ That there's many a slip 'twixt the marriage license counter and the altar was exemplified today, by the returning of two licenses Issued recently bearing on the face the word "unused." One per mit to wed was inclosed in an envelope addressed to the elerk of the court and was not accompanied by a note of expla nation. The other has attached to it a note, presumably from the mother of the groom-to-be. Names of the Licensees. The first license was issued to James M. Morris, Jr., twenty-four years old, of Mount Morris, N. Y., and authorised his marriage to Catherine E. Ford, twenty one yearn of age, of this city. Rev. & H. Wood row was the clergyman named In the license. The second recall came from Mrs. George P. Plltt, in which she tells the clerk the "marriage has been postponed indefinitely. Kindly cancel the inclosed certificate." This license was issued to Rev. John Weidley and authorised the marriage of Wlthrow C. PMtt. who said he was twenty-one years old December 8, 1911, and Anna Seltaer, whose age was given as eighteen years. 10 SIGN FORMAL ORDERS Justice Wright Probably Will Act Friday in Case of Labor Leaders. Formal orders adjudging Samuel Gomp ers, John Mitchell and Frank Morrison, labor leaders. In contempt of court win probably be signed nsxt Friday by Jus tice Wright of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. At the same time , a number of Interlocutory motions will be disposed of and the record completed on which counsel for the labor men will base their appeal from contempt sen tences. Attorney Jackson H. Ralston will con fer with the "committee of prosecutors" concerning the necessity of summoning John Mitchell from his lecture tour in the weet to hear the sentence of court pronounced against him. It Is consid ered likely that counsel will agree to have the sentence passed in the absence of the vioe president of the American Fed eration of Labor in order that the three appeals may be prosecuted at the same time. Justice Wright intimated yesterday that he had no disposition to embarrass Mr. Mitchell by requiring his presence for sentence. If counsel request that sen tence be passed in the abeence of Mitchell and the committee is satisfied of the right of the court to do so, Justice Wright strongly intimated that he would acquiesce in the request The oourt pointed out that there is precedent for the passing of sentence in the absence of one adjudged guilty of contempt. ?? ? 9 ?
