The riKht to reject or edit «*nimunication« is rceeryed by the Publisher. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13,1908. Last week in our election returns we stated that tbe Republicans car­ ded the Town of Somere. This was *n error. It was carried by the Democrats by a small majority, Bryan carrying it by 19 votes. This and Eaetcheater are the only towns of this county in the- Democratic column. - As President-in-Chief of the army President Roosevelt on Saturday led sixty officers and men on a five- mile, walk across lots on the out­ skirts of Washington. Streams were forded, etc., the. President's only re- gfet being that tbe water was so shallow that he and his followers did jaofcnave to swim across. The Pres­ ident is a card! As the election returns were not tabulated in proper form for making a table of the vote in Westchester County wp have failed to produce the •total vote in each town 01 the coun- as promised last week. Tbe Com- ! missioner of Election has a different- nystem than that employed hereto­ fore in the County Clerk's office, mak­ ing it much more difficult to get the returns. Even that Democratic paper, the \Mount Pleasant Compass,\ confes- that the election of Taft and the ftepublican ticket has' revived busi­ ness and will bring prosperity. The Compass says that befora election Broker Risley reported twenty-three apartments in Pleasantville for rent. Since election he has had numerous inquiries and expects to rent them all in a short time. How would it have been if Bryan had been elected? r The editor of the Mount Kisco Recorder had an awful norve to State last week that the \Recorder was the only Republican paper in this county that dared say a good word for Hughes before the state convention.\ The \ TIMES \ advo­ cated the nomination of Hughes from the first and supported him months before the nomination. More than this, we have seen very little support given to Hughes through the columns of the Recorder. He nas only men­ tioned his name & few times in a casual way and never gave him any very hearty support. We congratulate the people of the state upon the re-election of Charles E. Hughes for Governor. The defeat of Mr. Hughes would have been a a disaster for the Republican party and a disgrace to the State of New York. Gov. Hughes' election in the face of the desperate efforts made to defeat him by the Democratic machine backed by enormous cam­ paign funds, is a distinct victory for clean political methods, good gov­ ernment and high moral ideas in politics. Mr. Hughes, whatever may be said, against his popularity has bee£ an honest, fearless and most capable representative of the whole people of the State of New York and he will continue t o be such during his second term The people of this state have reasons to congratulate them­ selves upon his victory and the Re­ publican party to take great credit for the woudeWul (iglit put up in the ^Governor's bebalf, which resulted in huch a magnificent victory at the polls.

Republicans Regain Control of Supervisors With Forsyth as Chairman and Harvey Green as Clerk. At 3:30 o'clock Monday 'afternoon the Supervisors after *baving cau­ cused all day went into session,\ the understanding being that the Board would be organized ns follows:— Chairman, E. A. Forsyth, of Yon­ kers. Clerk, HarTey B. Green, of Chap- paqua. Assistant Clerk, David S. Murden, of Peekskill. (Re-elected.) County Attorney, Cbas. A. Van Auken, of New Rochelle. County Engineer (a Republican to be selected later.) Income Tax Appraiser in the place of John J. Sinnott, Fred L. Merritt, of New Rochelle. Early in the day the two Supervi­ sors from New Rochelle—Bewning- ham and Raymond—who were elected on tbe Democratic and Independent tickets and who hold the balance of power, announced that unless Ex- City Judge Van Auken, of New Ro­ chelle, was elected counsel to the Board and Fred L. Merritt was ap­ pointed Appraiser of the Income Tax in the place of John J. Sinnott, they would vote for John J. Sinnott, the present chairman of the Board and James J. Fleming for clerk. This ultimatum was announced through George I. Roberts, jormer Republican leader of New Rochelle, (now an Independent) and the Re­ publicans were finally obliged to ac­ cede to this demand or see the Board turned over to the Democrats for an­ other year, as the votes of the two New Rochelle supervisors absolutely controlled the situation. » Ward on SenatorahlikE _i \President RopaeveltsWxrta^onths.' ago came to the d^lsk >al ? tb *ti no combination of chrvmsiaikMSwbuId induce him to become .a can'didate for election to the United -/States Senate from New York Stated tb> 'suc­ ceed Thomas C.

He remarded that Governor, -Hughes in that year would have completed his second term as Governor ;pf-' rv'ew York and with a record, of splendid administration in the stateyduring the coming two years would :inake an admirable man for the place. \If you believe iu playing futures/' said Mr. Ward, \that is a good card to play.'; \ - Save Our Public Highways- The greatest of our visiblevassets is represented in the splendid^ high­ ways which have been built^by the State.

John P. McCormack, its pastor, denounced divorce as tbe curse of the nation and upheld the attitude of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of marriage. He said in part: \Divorce is a curse. America leads the world in divorces. Comparing the number of divorces in this country with those in Canada and Europe, there are many more here than in those countries. It is the curse of this nation. The Catho­ lic Church looks on the marriage state as mostsacred. Once married, forever married. The church has never reversed its decision on divorce and never will. Thank God, the ProteBtant churches are opening their eyes to tbe evils of divorce. \If any misfortunes are coming to this country they are going to be brought on by the curse of divorceJ If any blessings are to be the experi- • ence of this country, they will come through the sanotity of marriage.\ Murder At Mount Kisco. \t Vorth White Plains stands tbe i ii] lionet' which, while the American uliiiion w;irt in active progress, .sneliiM--il our revered Washington n.ore 1 huii any house now iu exist­ ence in the State of New York Let us si ve tin-* fiininu -i historic struc­ ture I f is III- H IIV owned by a man who it- willing to -1 II i he house with .an acre ann'onmling it at a very rea monable fijrilrn.

Thomas Waltman, a peddler, was shot and killed at Mount Kisco yes­ terday by men who robbed him of the small amount of money that be carried ' The body was found by a lamplighter. It was in a^ lane near the Oakwood cemetery on the out­ skirts of Mount Kisco. There were two bullet wounds in the chest while another bullet had lodged in the brain. Waltman's home was at 1435 St. Mai k '8 avenue, Brooklyn. He was well known around this neighbor hood, where for several years he had sold goods to workmen of the New York city watersheds and other pub­ lic works. When found he was lying on his back with all his pockets turned in side out. In h's left hand he clutched 02 cents which the robbers had failed to get. His pack had also been rifled. The lane where the body was dis­ covered leads from a camp where a large number of foreigners are em­ ployed in constructing the new sewer system for Mount Kisco, and it is be­ lieved he wa§ followed from the camp by the robbers after he had exposed a roll of bills in making change for of his purchasers. Wultmau visited Bedford on Satur­ day inorniug while walking with his pack toward Mount Kisco. Sheriff Lane and Coroner ! Squires were notified and they hnrried to the scene of the murder in an auto, but in their search for a clue thjjy didn't find anything definite. - office of Frank L. Young.
