K?SpBLE League Will Control If It Has to Invite Politicians to' Retire. POLITICS IN NEW ; YOBK War Being Waged on Tim Sulli? van?Higgins Is a Candi? date. (Special to The Tlnt?s-Dlspatch.) NEW YORK, . August 24,-Harry W. Walker, who has had an activo part In. arranging the reception to bo. given to William J. Bryan by the Coramorolal Travelers' Anti-Trust League on August 80th, to-day gave out a. statemont to the effect that politicians, headed by Alex? ander Troup, of Connecticut, and Nor? man E. Mack, of Buffalo, are trying to cohtrol the, movomoht, and that the league will control the arrangements for the roceptlon, even If It has to tell the politicians to rotlre, "Mr. Bryan aocepted the invitation from the Commercial . Travelers' Anti-Trust Leaguo," said Mr. Walker, "and wo think that he will appearod there, as stated." Mr. Mack, who Is the Democratic na? tional coratnltleeman from this State, said in reply to the statement there Is a popular Impression that the Bryan recep? tion Is a political affair, and that Mr. Bryan regards It that way. "Why should not the politicians take part In It7" ho asked. Mr. Mack said he Is not making trouble In the committee, and that there Is no talk-of Hearst in the arrangements. War on Sullivan. . ' Timothy D. Sullivan, who Is one.of the most popular men In Tammany Hall and who Is the best Judge of election reaulta * In the organization, is now being vio? lently attacked by the alliance formed to defeat Mayor McClollan and District Attorney Jerome at the primaries. , Mr. Hearst, who Is silent about Mr, Murphy, except to say ho is opposed to bosses like tho "Murphyltes," has begun a series of assaults on his former fellow Representativo, In Congroi??, giving him the benefit of cartoons and wldo typo. This Is regnrdod as an uffort on tho part of Mr.. Hearst and his friends, in Tammany to club Sullivan Into deserting the Mayor and Joining hands with tho Independence league In compolllng tho Buffalo convention to take tho candidate of the league. Mr. Sullivan Is a game fighter, and he Is, above all things, loyal. His friends nay that in this contest he believes loyal? ty to the Mayor Is loyalty to the Demo? cratic party, and that ho has ?old the Mayor he will be of assistance to him In case nn effort Is made by Mr. Murphy-to use the Hearst movement <ir a means of destroying him. It Is becoming clear that, whether Mr. M?rph/ support*? Mr. Hearst in Buffalo, ho is going to use tho Hearst sentiment to dofeat the. - Mayor's delegates, and in this emergency Mr. Sullivan Is' expected to line up all his friends and carry the Borough of Manhattan, if he can. "Big Tim" Sullivan Is the only man in the city who can turn ihe tl?e for Mr. Jerome an<l the Mayor, and both Mr. Hearst and Mr. Murphy know It. That it why'Sir. Sullivan Is occupying so much attention. Blow at Hearst. That the sentiment In favor of tho nomination of District Attorney Jeromo as the Democratic candidate for Gov? ernor has spread In all directions was again demonstrated yesterday by the acUon of the Democrats of tho Second Assembly District In Westchester county,, which refused to Instruct Its dolegates to tho State convention In favor of William R. Hearst. Before the declaration by Mr. Joromo that ho would consent to become a can? didate It was conceded without dispute that . tho ; twelve dolegates from West? chester county would be Instructed for. Mr. Hearst. Of the six elected thus far, however, Mr. Hearst's agents have failed to ob? tain Instructed delegates. Mr. Hearst's representatives made <j desperate but vain effort to obtain an"Instructed dele? gation In' the convention of , tho Second District, In Mount Vernon,. yesterday af? ternoon, and for more than an hour thero was danger that tho light would bo car? ried to the floor of tho convention. Friends of Mr. Jeromo wero on hand in sufficient numbors, however, to subdue tho' agents of the Independence Leaguo. '-' Higgins a Candidate. , William Barnes, Jr., chairman of the Republican State Executive Committee, after a conference with Governor Higgins on Wednesday, camo to town yesterday nnd announced that tho Governor was a candidate for renomination, nnd he pre? dicted that the Governor would soon have something to say in reply to the various statements of State Chairman Odell about his oandldacy. "Governor Higgins," said Mr. Barnes, '"Is a candidate for renomination. Ho never ohasod after a nomination, and he Is. not.chasing after a rehominatlon. Ho Is a candidate for renom biatlon, but? lio does not demand the honor from tho State convention. Ho did not oxpeot to mako any announcement with reference to'- his intentions prior to the mooting of tho State convention. I apprehend, howover, that tho talkativeness of tho State chair? man will at an oarly date prompt the Governor to mako a statemont outlining his position. "The friends of Governor Higgins will control the State convention and nomi? nate him. There is not tho sllghtoat doubt of>tnat. Oh tho showing made In the Stato Committee last week the Governor will have sixty, per cent of the delegates, and this percentage will bo Increased when the roll-call for Now . York and Kings counties is hod." Confers With Mr. Parsons. Mr. Barnes was In conference yester? day with Herbert Parsons.

AL ADAMS HARD HIT BY FIRMS FAILURE "AL" ADAMS, POLICY KING,!, Exp?rience With Wall Street Bubble Has Probably Cost Him Million and a Half Dollars. (Special to Tho Ttmen-DIspatch.) NEW YORK, August 24,?Al Adams, who fleeced thousands : on thousands through- the policy games which finally landed him In Sing Sing, appears to have been fleeced quite as badly when l?e turned to'?orno other fellow's gamming devlco. The assertion was-made confi? dently yesterday by those who seemed to bo thoroughly convorsant.with the deal? ings of M. J. Sage & Company, the failed bucket shop which Adams backed, and other Institutions of a similar nature, that probably his experience with the Wall Street bubble had cost him from $1,000.000 to Jl,600,000. Thoy wero con? fident that the Sage & Company concern had; not-lost more than about one-third that sum./ Young Adams's announcement absolv? ing his. father from connection with the bucket Bhop aroused much Interest among certain Individuals, who -havo been watch? ing'the course of Sage and Company rather'closely. Aduins, Jr., with Sage, had been recognized as the ruling desti? nies of the big shop, but Adams tho elder, before he went to Moxlco. to watch his GuanaJua.ro Amalgamated Gold Min? ing Company , property, which some of tho Sage people also were Interested, had paid, frequent visit? to tho Jersey City ofllcej-s of tho bucket Bhop. According to commonly accepted re? ports in tho financial district he went Into the Sage concern Just- after he loft Sing Sing, watohed about $1,500,009 dissipate Itself in the course of a yoar, saw It recovered and lost ngaln, almost re? covered and again vanish, and finally' ??ont tw torso message, saying. In effoct, "Ass?gni; nothing moro coming from mo." . Whon the Sage concern was ? started, i some two years ago, Maurlco J. Sage was > frosh from a few disastrous ventures In small bucket shops, in his own name and thoso of other persons. He had no capital. Charles W. Cannon was out of a Job through the Woodend smash .iijid the failure of Longley, Hale and Com? pany. Eidward J. Bradbury, the secre? tary of Sage and Companjv also was looking for a profitable connection about that Urne. Now, men In the financial district say, all are prosperous, their money evidently having come from the Sago and Company connection, . Sage himself Is said to live In exponslve stylo at Bath Beach, maintaining two automo? biles, while Cannon and Bradbljry are es? timated to have several hundred thou? sand dollars apiece. As operated by them and young Adams, who was credited with being, the "man higher up" in the company's affairs. Sage & Co. was the biggest bucket shop in the eountry. It had twenty . wires Into the Jersey City clearing house, and 165 corre? spondents were scattered through, tue country. The wire service to the South alone was said to cost 180,000 a year. No branch houses were maintained?a featu re distinct from TR5~usual bucket shop pro? cedure,., but, like the Adams chain Of policy shops/local correspondents, operat? ing under their own names, sent their orders to Sage & Co., where'they were bucketed. The same concern backed the local concerns, cloaring Its sheets with the. local Arm caoh night. Tho profits were deposited'by the' local Arm in. the local bank to the credit of Sage & Co. One of the men' connected ? with Sage & Co. declared yesterday-that absolutely no exchange connection was maintained by the firm. "We didn't need any." he explained, Ingenmously. But Wall Street men said that a certain Stock Exchange member was used at times by Sago.& Co. to "hedge" when the bets on its sheets were too heavily- against It,-Just as a bookmaker would round out his book,. hedging through bets with another book 1 maker. ?confident that they can beat the Qulgg men. State Chairman Odoll was In conference yesterday with many of the local district leaders. He repeated his prediction that Governor Hlgglns : would not be renom inated. "Do you think Governor Hlgglns will make a fight In the convention?" he was asked. . ? "If he has th? ammunition ho may," said the State chairman. Continuing, he said: . "Thoro Is a strong sentiment through? out the State against tho renomination of tho Governor. Jt would bo a great mistake to reriominate him In tho faco of thlB opposition." "Do you still think that Charles E. Hughes will be nominated?" "I never Insisted that Mr. Hughes, will bo nominated," said Mr, Odd!, "That is a matter for the convention to decide. I havb discovered considerable- ?entlmont for Hughes, but none for Hlgglns, I think Mr. Hughes would make a good candidate." Sherman in Capital, (By Associated Press.)

VAST SCHEME OF Fails In Plan to Consolidate Four ?Companies B'acked by Equi? table and Mutual, MILLIONS INVOLVED IN PLAN Guaranty Trti?t, United States Mortgage and Trust, Equitable and Mercantile Named. ' : (SpfrcliU . to. Th?. Tiyioi-Dlspatch.. ' NEW YORK, August 24.?Thomas V. Ryan, before he wont to Europe, tried unsUootMsfuUy to consummate a gigantic > scheme: for tho ' consolidation under.' his ' own dominating Influenc?, of the .four; great, trust, companies, controlled respec? tively by the Equitable' Dlfo Assurance Society .and the .Mutual Life .Insurance Company. Those subsidiary;- companies are the Guaranty Trust Company and tho United States Mortgage and Trust Company,, con? trolled by the Mutual Dito, and the Equl tablo Trust Company and the Mercantile Trust Company, controlled by the Equita? ble. On comp?tent authority It was learned yesterday ..-that. Mr. Paul D. Cravuth, Mr. Ryaii'a personal counsel, acting under Mr, Ryan's lnstruoUons,l drew -ip In outline a proposal setUng forth the main features of a plan for the consolidation of the companies named under tho fostering wing of the Morton Trust Company, an institution dominated by Mr, Ryan' and of which he Is Uio vice-president, - As the owner of tho majority stock Interest In the Equitable Life, Mr. Ryan could readily have swung Into such a deal the Equitable'. Life's holdings In tho Mercantile Trust Company, amounting to 05 per cent, of that concern's entire capital stock. This holding had a market value on January 1st, of last year, of about $12,800,000. He oould have brought in also the Equitable. Life's stock hold? ing In the 'Equitable Trust ' Company, amounting to about 60 per cent, of that trust company's' capitalization, with a markot value of about $8,800,000. Vast Deal Collapses. To acquire control of tho trust com? panies hubstdiary. to the Mutual Life was not so easy* and the scheme failed- The Mutual Life had W.730 shares of the stock of tho United States Mortgage and Trust Company, held at a market value of $4, 291,400, and 8,648, shares of the Guaranty Trust Company's, stock, .worth $4,758,400. Under the terms of the Armstrong In? surance laws the life Insurance companies must divest themselves.of all their stock., in these ?ibsldlary Institutions and of all' other stooks within a period of five ye^rs. In that nooeeslty Mr. Ryan saw an oppor? tunity for a characteristic stroke of high, finance. . . ?? '?? These companies have been Immensely profitable. According ? to the ' Equitable. Life's report to the Armstrong committee, its Mercantile Trust"stock paid an annual dividend of. thirty per cent. Its:' book value was $434, ,and Itsr,market price $900. The Eqiiltafcle, Tr^slLpalguan t annual ten per cent. dlvldend.VThe Guaranty.. Trust Company, and Uvj .United.-8tates Mort? gage and Trust Company each' was paying a twenty-per" cent, annual : dividend In 1905. Acquired by the Mutual Life at a cost price of less than $147, Its Guaranty Trust Company stock had a market value of $550/ '.while Us United ,'StateB Mortgage and Trust holdings, acquired at $155.10, had a market price of $400. Mr, Ryan had not Ibeeri without In? fluence In the ai fairs of the Mutual Life. Tho Mutual hold 2,000 shares In Mr. Ryan's Morton Trust Company, rep? resenting a value of $1.400,000. In the Mu? tual Life's Board otf Trustees wore men distinctly friendly to the Ryan Interests, and several, Including George <?. Havon, who also Bat In the directorates of such tttetinctlyely Ryan institutions as the Washington Life Insurance Company or the Morton Trust. When Thomas F. Ryan and Lev! P. Morton acquired control of the Washington Life, Mr. Ryan, with the consent and good will of the old McCurdy administration of the Mutual, plaood in the presidency of the Washing? ton Life John Tatlock, a trusted officer of the Mutual. -?'??' ? Scheme Soon Crushed. When It came to a formal proposal to swallow tho Mutual's two big trust conv panles, however, and consolidate them with his own Into a gigantic Institution, with the Morton Trust" as Its nucleus, tho Mutual Life balked at Mr. Rynn's plan, and the matter Went no further than Mr. Cravath's submission of a skele? ton proposal of terms. , Mr. Ryan also hoped to control the dis? posal of the Mutual Life's large holdings in the stock of tho National Bank of Commerce, which must also be unloaded under the terms of the reform Insurance laws, unless those laws be modified within tho next five years. Tho Equitable Lifo has 50.231 shares of that security, worth $10120.800 on January 1, ,'1905.,. That is about twenty per coot, of tho bank's cap? ital stock 'The Mutual Life holds 30,088 shares, worth $7.270,000 a year ago. Charles A. Poabody, president,, and Emory McCllntock, vice-president of tho Mutual 'Life, refused yesterday to dis? cuss in any way Mr, Ryan's relations with tho Mutual, elthor actual or pro? spective, but an old and well-Informed member of the Mutual's board Is author? ity for the statement that before Mr. Ryan went abroad he ondoavored to ob? tain an option far the purohase of the Mutual's National Bank of Commerce stock, or, at least, assurances that It would not bo dlsposod of to others dur? ing his nbsenco. Whothei* Mr, Ryan contemplated acquiring these shares In connection with the proposed consolida? tion of tho big trust companies or through tho medium of a eoparato syn? dicate oould not bo learned, That Mr. Ryan has by no menns aban? doned these schemes, and that ho 1b plan? ning to strengthen his Influence In the Mutual Life, bo as to make them pos? sible, is a belief persistently held In tho llnnncliil district, Usually well Informed financiers have expressed outspokenly tho suspicion that elthor Mr. Ryan or Jamos H. Hyde, who sold out to Mr. Ryan- the Equitable control, or tynth of them, are the real powers behind Samuel Untor mypr's offert to wrest from their present managements by means of the Interna? tional I'olloyholders' Committee the con? trol of the Mutual ?nil tho New York Life.

HARVEST FIELDS ATTRACTIVE High Wages Offered by Farmers Lure Hands Away From . Dumps and Camps. (Special to Tho Tlme?-D1?p_tch.) CHICAGO, .ILL., August 24.?Railroa* ' construction in tho Far Weit, which this year exceeds all previous records, is in' danger of being hampered by .the short? age of common labor, according to state- ' monts'made by officials In Chicago* Then? , men declare that there Is not a projeot In the country but could easily'use twice as many men as can be employed at the present time. Shortage of labor is an obstacle thaj. always confronts railroad construction and Improvement of right of way at this time of the. year. The demand f or har? : vestors In the grain-growing regions o| the West, and the high wages offered by the farmora, draw men away from th? railroad camps, who are greatly needed .to complete the work under way before cold weather comes. "We are greatly hampered by a short ago of labor," declared an official of: a railroad that Is doing an Immense amount of work this year, both In Improving Its right of way and In building new line-, "J should say that we could easily usa. twice as many men ne we now have em? ployed,' but wo can't get them. The mar? ket Is absolutely drained of common labor, and there appears to be no surplus any* where. Other lines, I believe, aro In th? sume fix." ctStoBHH A few days ago Oeorge J.

No r_? port of the numb?r of men hired lvt. boon given out,'but It Is understood that. less than three thousand could be found to go into tho camps, American labor Is hard to get at the present time otolng to the fact that It I* employed In other lines of work ami dow not seoln to take kindly to the Idua of living In camps and working upon tall road dumps and stool gang?. Besides, 111??' fftrniera usually offer special Inducement* to Americans lo work on tjio farm, and this leaves the rallrond work Inrftely i(t ? the foreigners, who form gangs of their own and work and live together, So far tho St." Paul road has experienced little difficulty in employing enough, labnrors to carry om the work of build-, lug the now Pacific oonst extension.
