I f possible, secure Ills elec­ tion. This handicap, It is believed b y even members of his own party, will be too great fo r him to carry and •win. H e won his first office by denouncing the men and methods that are now worlj- Jng fo r Ills election to the governor­ ship, jsnd..it Is hard to figure; out how he can wi n both ways. Mr. Chanler has committed himself unreservedly to Bosses Oonners, Murphy nnd Mc- Carren In this campaign. Tha t was taken fo r granted when he accepted the nomination at their hands. But hp has confirmed his position toward them publicly on several occasions since 1 lie action of the Rochester con­ vention The most sensational confirmation of his present close relations with the Democratic bosses was made when lie delivered his speech of acceptance In a preface to his speec li be rebuked Chairman \Fingy\ ('miners for lietray- IBR his confidence by giving to the re porters n summary of the speech on the day before it was delivered Rut this rebuke was a confession that In- had submitted his speei h to the bosses —Conners, Murphy and Mcrnrren—be­ fore it was delivered and that It had at least been O K \d by them, if they had nothing to do with dictating it This places Mr ('hauler In the position of placing himself ami liis c-.-tmlicl.n y unreservedly In the Keeping of Hie bosses But be goes further lliiln this li e declared in his speech that be would, if elected governor, consult with the leaders of his party when important measures, were up for consideration and disposition A s Connors Mur phy. McCarren nnd Mel'nbe are the recognized a'nd undisputed \leaders\ of the Democratic party In this state it follows that these are the gentle men who will bp consulted by Mr Chanler In advocating and framing legislation in the event of his election In other words, these corrupt bosses-, the most corrupt and unscrupulous in the history of the Empire State-will be the real and active power In the executive mansion 'If Mr ('hauler is elected This is regarded by every indepond ent Democrat as well as by every Ite- publican. is the real menace to the good of the state in the Chanler cam psigr. It was sized up eloquently by Mr Shearn the Hearst gubernatorial candidate, in these words \That is to say, when it Is time to write u mes­ sage or appoint a new head for the Insurance department or the new highway commission which is to spend fifty millions of public money- District Attorney of Monroe County Begins Proceedings Against the De­ partment of State Engineer and Sur­ veyor, Charging; Graft—This Office Will Disburse the Millions For Gcod Roads and the Barge Canal, and the Mouth of the Tammany Tiger Waters FoVthe Contracts. \A grand jury investigation of State Engineer and Surveyor Skene's office was begun by District Attorney How­ ard H. \Videner this morning. I t in­ volves charges of graft, padded pay­ rolls and reckless if not criminal viola­ tion of contract specifications. Until I his morning Mr. Widener had no evi- Jcnce outside of work doue in Monroe county, but it is broadly hinted that Erie county and possibly Niagara and Genesee may be involved, as they are in the western department and work done there has had to pais through the division office in this city.\ This is a press dispatch\ from Roch­ ester to the Buffalo Daily News of one day last week. I t serves to call atten­ tion to what many construe as the one great issue in \the present state cam­ paign—namely, SHALL THE STATE BE TAMMANYIZED? Neyer before in the history of the state has the leader of Tammany Hall wielded the influence iu the control of the state organization which Charles F. Murphy no w does With William J. Conners, he is in absolute control of the situation. Both Conners and Mur phy are interested in contracting work. This state will expend during the next fe w years almost $200,000,000 in improvements on the barge canal and the public highways. These millions are the stake in the game which Mur­ phy and Conners are now playing. The paragraph quoted above with refer­ ence to the grand jury's work in Roch­ ester indicates that in the highway construction which has been going on during the past year there is need o f investigation in not the large cities, but the rural counties. The highwa y Improvement Is t o be •undertaken i n substantially every, county of 'the'- state. Into-these coun­ ties the representatives of state offi­ cials will b e sent to inspect the wo.rk during its progress and when com­ pleted. The state officials will have the awarding of the contracts. Under the la w i t happens that the superin­ tendent of .public works' term is coin­ cident with that o f the governor, and so the governor elected on Nov 3 will have the appointment of that official. If Chanler and the balance of the state ticket should be elected, every otH < i of the state government who has tin- handling of this money will 1>- a l '.-m ocrat who owes his plme o i i. \> to the grace of Charles F Murphy nu William .1 ('mmcr-i Tammany Hull N inal.tug great dem­ ons! ml ions in mi effort to shuw thai harmony o\Nts a-noiig the l)cmocr ;iis and that the c hnin es of carrying the state this year are better than ever before Th e TiiniMia >y leaders June informed thenisc-hes fully as to these great funds to be expended for stale purposes That was i>ne re .is.,i i wi n Tammany Hall ami < oaie-rs at I'H re­ cent State c on\ent l .ni «\\ ,-illnu c -cl th.-ii pride and allowed a si -ml-lan f peace to pervade tin- I ic -ino. rw i st in convention Tlii-y c ov.lcl sec- rl-c- siz e of the stakes in the game this year They want a slice of that .$l'l )i).(iOi) nit Those wh o have studied can-fury the \workings of the government in i In city of New 9ork will understand thai they will scruple at nothing when it conies to \cutting up the pie\ Little branches o f Tammany Hall will be lo­ cated in every county of this state There will be no section of highway that will not bp under the eye of a Tammany Inspector Th e tiger will not only cross the Brooklyn bridge but it will go with one jump from Montauk Point to Lake Erie This is one of the things that the thoughtful voter ma y well consider on Tuesday, Nov 3.

Demand Indioates That Governor Will \ Run Abreast With Taft, 'vThe .Republican state committee has received advices from\ throughout the state indicating that th e Interest in the candidacy o f Governor Hughes is Hot secondary to that o f Mr . Taft,- as has been frequently asserted. On the contrary, it looks as though the gov­ ernor would run at least even if not ahead of the presidential candidate and that the plurality fo r both will b e surprisingly large. One indication of Hughe s enthusi­ asm is the immense dema-fl for pic­ tures of the eovernor, a uemand so great that the state committee has been unable t o keep up wit h It. There was some delay In getting.started on these pictures, as Governor Hughes had not expressed a preference of the many lithographs suoniltted to hi m until about a wee k ago. Th e presses are now turning them out as rapidly as possible, an d they will be sent throughout the state as fast as they come from the pross. WALL ST. MONEY,IS BACK OF CHANLER.

Owin g to the law passed b y the Republicans making i t illegal fo r corporations to contribute t o campaign I funds the contributions have been lenn and fe w and far between. But the gloom because o f this condi­ tion has lifted from th e Democratic headquarters a t the Hoffman House, New York. Mone y In big chunks has been fairly raining on Chairman Con­ ners, and there is great rejoicing in the Democratic camp A very large proportion of i t comes fro m Men who are ia comtrol o f big corporations. Probably tbo biggest fund is'bein g collected by th e members of the Stock Exchange. Wall street Is bitterly op­ posed to the re-election o f Governor Hughes and is contributing liberally t o the Democrajtlc^fund. The Stock Ex­ change is almost solidly ' against Hughes because of a fear that he will order an investigation of that great -\speculative\ organisation on th e ^ ground: .that its transactions are to, a ^ l^^j^dejprco-'.riure an d simple gam-- J^j'f hUng.' Tils', fea r Is 'based 'on a recent, speech in -Srhlch , Governor Hughes said, \I recommended t o the legisla­ ture that provision should be mad e for suitable inquiry Into the facts re­ lating to speculation In securities and commodities wit h a view to ascertain­ ing tbo manner in which illegitimate transactions may be prevented and legitimate business safeguarded \ It Is reported that the members of the board of governors o f the exchange are the heaviest contributors to the Demo­ cratic fund and that the total amount from that source will reach a heavy figure. It is charged and not denied that THomas F. Ryan, the head of the great traction trust 'that has looted the city of New Y'ork o f millions, dic­ tated the democratic state platform. It is expected that his personal con­ tribution will be withheld until the close of the campaign, but his asso­ ciate and representative. William V Sheehan, had a long conference with the executive committee of the Dem­ ocratic organization and is said to have left a large check, together with some very valuable advice and prom­ ises of \more to come.\ August Belmont, th e recognized hoad' of the race track syndicate in this state, was another caller at Dem­ ocratic headquarters an d left n sub­ stantial token o f his visit with Chair­ man Oonners. I t is declared that an immense fund has been subscribed by the race track and \allied interests\ toward the Democratic fund and that Mr. Btlmont will b e \the medium through which it will find its way to the Democratic coffers. John W Gates, the steel trust mil­ lionaire, who , to use his own phrase, \occasionally bets a rallllon,\ wh o has made several attempts to break the bank a t Monte Carlo and who Is an all around patron o f \sports 1H- cluding race tracks and faro banks, has returned from Europp and de­ clares himself an enthusiastic sup­ porter of Mr Chanler. H e Is talking Chanler, betting on hi m and i s said to have contributed handsomely to­ ward the Democratic fund. Cord Meyer, who made a colossal fortune during his connection with the sugar trust aud Is now conuected with many other trusts, appeared at Democratic headquarters the other day arm in arm wit h Chairman Con­ nors. \Fingy\ introduced him around and said, \Meyer is with us, an d he is here to d o business.\ He was asked Whether the check left by Mr. Meyer was for live or six figures, but he re­ plied: \Never mind He is here to do business.\ Mr. Meyer was state Chairman during th e Parker campaign and, it is said, will collect money for the Democratic fund In Wall street and among the big corporations. Ia the meantime the Republican state committee Is hard pressed for money. No large contributions hn\* been received from any source. :'nd none Is expected.
