Journal Ticket found they srere not, they accept, ed the dictum of the board of elections without making any trouble about the matter. There wae no crowding at any of the polls, voters coming in a steady stream and .casting, their vote., and then walking out again. The voting machine., which w<^re ^ used throughout the county, ' it is said, were responsible in no small part for the speeding W. of the work of voting, and the voleTs-siisre through with balloting within a very few minutes after entering the polling place. Th is wae rather^suinrielng,. . jn view of the heavy vote which was cast. The itream of voters start, ed at 6 a. m., and at 6 p. m. the steady, trickling stream was still coming into the various polls to east votes In one of the most in ­ teresting elections ever held in Rockland County. Platform To Which NewlyjElected Democrats In County Are Pledged The . Evening Journal re-printeli-conditlone today under fifteen sep- herewith the. platform adopted by the Couniy Democratic party, at Ita caucus in New City, on AU' gust 17: In tho firm belief that the peo­ ple are fully entitled to know how their government is being conduct ­ ed, we, the members of the Demo­ cratic Party of Rockland Counter, in convention assembled at New City on this 17th day of August, 1929, do put ourselves on record regarding important puWic-matteraf which, we believe, should be put before the voters and explained to them before they cast their bal ­ lots on Election Day. We believe that the time haa come to make a change , in the county government, because, by reason of their long and uninter ­ rupted tinure of ofilcei.the.'Repub ­ licans have grown careless of their sacred rcsponetbiliUes and indif- arate health departmenti. Theye not being a central office, much of the work is done in a slip-shod manner, ^and a great deal of the health inspection work is not done at ail. There is no public quesUon more imporUnt than the health of the people ami we believe that far more efficient work could be done along- these lines if a Central Health Deiwrtment, with the en ­ tire responsibility resti^ upon the _L ..... department, were to be created. Wo therefore pledge ourselves to direct our best efforts toward establishing such a Icpartment. The Couniy Courthouee Although we believe that the money expended on the new Coun ­ ty courthouee is beyond all reaeon and that, before passing on the sum to be spent, the county offi- Both Parties Ghre Views I Haverstraw Stages Parade On Results of Election As Part of CeleMon c (Continued from page 1) county, I expected a.

Link will be the .polo Republican wDoee eervante they really are. We believe that'the people of Rockland Coimty ate ready to en ­ trust their affairs to the Democra ­ tic party because they are tired un, to death of the ultra-reactionary, do-nothing, stand-pat policies of the present county government. We believe that, should the people draft our party .for duty, the Dem ­ ocratic Party of Rockland County will not fail them. We pledge ourselves In all sol ­ emnity that, should the people cell upon the Democratic porty to guide their affairs for the next^two years, our party wil give them as economical, clean and fair an ad ­ ministration, as it is humanly pos ­ sible. • Furthermore, we pledge our ­ selves to adopt and promulgate ae many progressive measures' as are conaietent with good government baaed on sound principles, meas ­ ures which will rebound to the ben ­ efit of- all the people, rather than I to the favored few. ■ To thin end we pi as the * Democratic party of this county, as well as the men who are to be chosen u ranSitUtes in^kar ioui offices, to 'tKa foTl, form: Zoning and Planning Thin reform should receive the full co-operation of all our town and ektmly oficlala, not in a hearted way, but with all alnceri: of purpose and determination to ichieve results.

We believe that the time baa come when Rockland County should have a police force, with heoilquarters in New City, second to hone in efficiency, so that the rural and unincorporated sec ­ tions of the county may be fully piwtected at all hours of day or night. We believe that the day of police protection by constabulary of the building and grounds. Highways ...

In view of the rapid gi'owth of the county ’ s population and its steadily growing import ­ ance with relation to the Metro ­ politan district, we pledge our selves to make every effort in cre ­ ating new and more direct high ­ ways between tmponant centers i^ the county. Trahsportation Fully cognisant at the fact that no community can exist or prosper without adequate transportation, we, the Pen^raGc party of Rock ­ land County, pledge ourselves to encourage and in every way con ­ sistent with circumstances aid any effort made toward jmvidlng'add ed transit faclUties in* our commu ­ nity.

It is said that a prophet is not honoted in his o™ country, but I really was pleased with the support given be in my own town. ” Judge Raymond Fisher, Demo- t, re-elected -as Justice in Clarks- Haveralraw last night that the Re ­ publican party in the town had become split between the leader ­ ship of Heman Purdy and Richard Oldfield. It was reported that this split was one of the things thai^ led to the crushing defeat that was experienced by the party here. \the trouble first came up over the nomination 61 James Tierney and Vincent Albert tor Supervisor and Town Clerk who were former ­ ly Democrats. Part of the Repub ­ lican town organisation claimed that the move was to play right in ­ to the hands of the Deihocrats while others claimed that the two men would poll njbre Deraperatte votes than Republican. - The final show down turned out to be one of the most crushing de ­ feats ever experienced, and a total disruption of the Republican organiution. Democrats were mot sure of their success up until the time this votes were counted. W Ambrose Larkin, President ef the Rockland County Democratic Club, said at C o ’ clock lost night that the whole election seemed strangefy different from any in the past, and he would not- venture to say what would be done by the party voters.
