'f an order by Supreme Court Justice Wil-il.-vm
(iaynor In Brooklyn, compelling Po
ii -e Commissioner MrAdoo to remove every
ballot box from all the precincts In Greater
New York to the bureau of elections. Wil
liam It. Hearst, the defeated Municipal
ownership league candidate, took his first
-nl step In a fight to secure a recount of
the votes cast on elertlon day. The ord'r
will granted after Justice Oaynor had re
viewed affidavits submitted by Mr. Hearst's
attorneys, and half an hour later Colonel
Alexander Bacon and E. W. Brown, repre
senting Mr. Hearst, served the ordr on
Commissioner McAdoo, who sent mil a
general order to every precinct In Creator
New Tort, Instructing the captain or other
officer In charge to send the ballot boxes
straightway to the bureau of elections In
When notices were served on the ser
geants In command of Charles street and
West Twentieth street stations to send
their ballot hoxes to the bureau of elec
tions the Sergeants refused, saying the
raptalns of their stations were the men to
tell them what to do and thst they would
not send the boxes until their superior
officers bad notified them.
In signing the order Justice Gaynor said:
The police have nothing whatever to uo
Willi the ballot boxes and It Is most nston
Ishttig thst thev should have noesenslnu "f
them. They have no right to touch them.
The order is granted.
The granting of the order came unex
pectedly and caused much surprise, nnd
with the opinion of Justice Oaynor that the
police have no right to the ballot boxes
and Should not even touch them, s new as
pect Is placed on the rase. This is the first
time such an order was ever Issued, ns here
tofore the police had always Imd charge, of
the hallot boxes after the count Is taken at
t'n polling places. They are removed to
the ststlon homes Immediately after the
ballots have been counted.
Mr. Ivlns. the defeated inayorulity candl
d.itc. was asked today by Mr. Hearst to
net as his counsel In the right lie will wage
to be declared mayor. Mr. Ivlns refused
but said he would gladly co-operate with
the attorneys who will conduct the fight as
naKsiclute. counsel.
' " Hearst Alleges Fraad.
That a hitter fight will be waged in the
courts to decide whether McClellun or
Hearst Is to be mayor of New York
for the. next four years is now as
sured. The complete returns give Mc
Clellan a plurality of 3.45 votes, the
smallest ever recorded for a successful
mayoralty candidate and a result which
might be readily reversed by a recount
of the ballots. Mr. Hearst today an
nounced his Intention to take an immedi

Most of thla fraudulent voting is ssld
to have been done In East Bide assembly
districts, and especially In the Eighteenth,
Charles F. Murphy'e home district, and In
the Sixth, of which Timothy D. Sullivan
Is the leader.
Mr. Hearst' proposed action met with
warm approval In many quarters, even
among those who opposed his election,
and he received many assurances of sup
port. District Attorney Jerome ex
pressed himself In terms of strong ap
proval of Mr. H'eant'a program tnd de
clared that he would Immediately insti
tute a eearchlng investigation of the al-
,leged democratlo frauds. He also or
dered the returns from the Eighteenth
and Sixth districts to be carefully ijuarded.
tra O. Darrln. the newly elected district
attorney of Queens county on the re
publican ticket, made a similar statement.
William M. Ivlns. the defeated repub

the belief that a recount would show

Statement by Tammany.
After a secret session of the executive
committee of Tammany Hull this afternoon
ih following statement was issued:
The executive committee of the demo

rageous published threat hv the defeated
candidate of the Municipal league to over
throw the will of tin- people, as expressed
hv the vote cast on election day. and di
rects Its law committee to exert Its best
efforts and take such steps and institute

election of George H. McClellan as mayor
of Now York.
We also call on the commissioner of po
lice and ttie custodian of the ballot to
preserve the same Intact from all interfer
ence by any one from an unauthorized
Some of the leaders, after the meeting,
cxpreaaed the opinion that the returns
showed censure of Mr. Murphy's leadership
and he should as a result step down and
out and make room for a man against
whom nothing could be charged. They
thought that It whs time for George B.
McClellan to assume the leadership himself.
superintendent of Elections Morgan said
tonight that while doubtless many Illegal
votes were cast, he would express no opin
ion on the contention made by the Munici
pal Ownership league managers that they
amounted to 30,000. He hud made, he said,
many arrests, but only thirty of the prison
ers were held by the magistrates.
Attorney General Mayer said that he had
information that illegal voles were cast
in several assembly districts. "In any event,
however," said the attorney general, "even
should 'we discover thousands of cases of
illegal voting, It would not affect the count,
fur the reaaon that the ballots cannot be
deducted. So fur as we are concerned our
Jurisdiction ends with the prosecution of
llic criminals where the crime of illegal
voting has been committed."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. (.Special Tele
gram. The Boyd county lend cases which
have been pending for years In the courts
and before the secretary of the interior,
are to be heard finally by Secretary Hitch
cock next week. These cases have been
brought by the stale of Nebraska against
squatters on lands Included within the old
Fort Randall military reservation and Big
Sioux reservation, to dispossess squutters
on these lands, so that they may be taken
over by the state for school purposes.
Years ago the government ceded to the
state of Nebraska some 6,2'K) acres of land
In Boyd county for school purposes, but
through legislative acts and inability of
state officers to control the same, the lands
In question, probably worth JSjO.OW, have
been occupied by squatters. Suits have
been brought to eject them from their
holdings and the cases have now reached
the secretary of the Interior on appeal
from a decision of the geueral land office,
which has held that the lands In question
properly belong to the school fund of Ne
braska. Captain K. F. Murtln of Lincoln, special
attorney of the attorney general's office.
Is In Washington to present to Secretary
Hitchcock reasons why the decision of the
general land office should be affirmed. In
the event Secretary Hitchcock affirms the
decision of the general land office, suit In
ejectment, now pending Iu the supreme
rourt of Nebraska, will be pushed to an j
affirmance and the case tsken up to cir
cuit court in order that the United States
jnarsha may have Jurisdiction looking to
