If need bo, a majority for Henrst must be declared irrespective of the actual vote. .'The committee on contested seats, nncfer orders from Mtirpby. threw out nine duly elected delegates from New York county who worts for Sulzer and seated nine rump delegates because they agreed to vote for Hearst. A little sum in arithmetic will gne the following results Add the niue Sul zer votes thrown out by the committee to the thirty ulne received in tlie Tam many caucus and you ha.ve forty eiSht votus for Sulzer. add to these the eight ecu votes of the Sulzer delegates wliu refused to go into the taucus, and }ou have sixty <ix votes for Sulzer and tlnrt) nine t >r Hearst <;iv.e these si\ ty six voles to Mr Sulzer anil he would lia\o been uuuiiuated ou the first ballot for governor Instead of Hearst. the documentary evideni e thut wouM have conclusively proved this larceny ou the part of Mnrpby was of course destroyed Tom Smith, secretary of Tammany Hall kept the tally tn th» caucus. Mr Smith suld that he gave the tally sheet to Mr Murphy Mr Murphy when asked If he had re­ ceived the tally sheet said, \Maybe but I lost it\ As the details of the crime commit ted at Buffalo by Murphy on behalf or Hearst become Known to the Demo <rat8 throughout the state the wave of Democratic indignation becomes great er and sweeps from one end of the commonwealth to the other As De radcraey puts It, \Mr Hearst has uo more right to have his name at the head of the Democratic column thau Max Ilucsen.\ The Democrats of the state have been tricked, and this ex­ pose reveals Hearst In his\ \t u> light- nh impostor masquerading as a Demo­ crat by grace of the well nigh criminal trickery of Murphy Every Democrat is absolved from the leust, vestige of .aUeglaucete- tw» trickster' The best Interests of the real Democracy de- maud the election of Charles E.

Fifth.—I-.am-against Hearst because through his paper ho has systematical ly for years by every means that malice could Invent endeavored to stir up a strife and contention between the laborer and the employer and between one class and acfofher class of our peo pie I am against him because he hns done thi» leganlless of the welfare of Flie poopte in order that he might profit by li s own wrong. Sixth I am against Hearst because there is uo ai 'Use which he has con­ demned which tie IIHS not been willing to take advantage of when it serves his purpose Finally I am against Hearst be­ cause he has sacrificed the Judicial of­ fices to bis ambitions and I am for Hughes because, like liideon of old, he was summoned by the righteous voices of the people and because he fulfills the Injunction of Jethro to Moses— that the people should select capable men men of truth who hate eovetous- ness and place such men over them *t rule™.

There should be. nothing startling about a .decent magazine for, \Womennand the holne. But this particular magazine is unique among all the so-called publications for women. You might not like it a little bit, and then, again, it might hit your fancy good and. hard. I If you like fiction— good,, wide-awake, snappy stories— ^ * tooth serials and short stories—you will like \ Woman.\ ^ In fact, fiction is the big feature of the magazine. All the other magazines for women are cast on the same model—a little bit of fiction, a few articles, more or less chit chat, some wise advice, a fashion department and a smattering of general miscellany. \WOMAN\ doesn't look any more like this conventional model than a yellow dog looks like a race horse. It is built on new lines for a strictly woman's publication. To know what-k is like\ you will have to get a copy of it. It would cost too much to tell you all about it in this advertisement. The price of « WOMAN \ is TEN CENTS A COPY, and the magazine is a very big one—192 pages. 5 By the way, two rattling good serial stories begin in this first num­ ber and it contains a big lot of other good things. You would do well ,to ask your ^dealer for it before his supply is exhausted. THE FRANK A. MUNSEY COMPANY, New York. Courier Ads. Pay.
