B”U‘$'I2.N .’E$S-’ The Primary Election of September 16th will con the nominations of many new men for the Assembly at New York State, and it is ezident that the people are to decree that the old order of a at Albany is to pass away. Men of independence who are ! grounded in the belief in good government, have been designated as candidates for the Legislature, and such men are to be chosen for the dis- charge of official duties at the General Election of November 4th. The Party Machines of the Empire State are responsible for the chaos now prevailing in its governmental affairs, The Departments are demor~ alized in every branch, and there is no con \in the sincerity of official purpose, from the Governor down to the least responsible appointee. The present administration-is a demonstra- tion of the spoils system gone to seed. That system was sown in the wind and ripened underyRepublican boss rule, and it is being reapt in the whirlwind of Democratic misrule.
