DIETS JW1 AND LOSE , A GAME
Defeat Jetter and Are Defeated by
The Diets Athletics loat the flrat gams
to the Neumayere of Council Bluffs yes
terday mainly because of loose fielding.
Although the hits were even the Neumay
ere secured theirs when most needed. Tha
feature of the game waa the use of the
f neumatlc league ball far the flrat time in
hla part of the country.
Instesd of the solid rubber core the new
ball has a hollow core filled with com
pressitd air, wound with linen thread and
covered In regulation fashion. This atyle of
ball Is much livelier than the regulation
league ball and It ia predicted will tend to
Increase hesvy hitting.
In the second game the Diets Athletlca
bit the Jetter' pitcher at will, while the
Jetter were unable to solve. Rice's deliv
ery. Th Jetter' error slso contributed to
their defeat by a acore of 7 to 2.

Will be the attraction at Diets park.

NEW TORK. Sept. 2t-Th determina
tion of both of the old political partlea
In this state to hold their convention on
the tame date thla year I In It way In
dicative of th unprecedented situation In
th political affairs of this commonwealth.
It Is a situation which haa attracted the
Intereat of the entire country and la looked
to to have an effect upon the presidential
campaign of two years hence. The actua
tion Involve men of national political
repute and President Roosevelt himself
haa let his Influeno diplomatically he
felt, though ostensibly keeping "hands
off." " ; "
Both republican arid 'democratic psrtlea
are torn with factional disputes. With
these Internal dissensions afflicting' the old
parties, a third political party haa been
launched under the 'tide ''Af the Indepen
dence league. Thl league, which now haa
completed It organisation In every county
of th state, la th outgrowth of the Mu
nicipal Ownerahtp league, which made the
mayoralty fight In New Tork City laat
November with William Randolph Hearst,
the congressman and newspaper proprietor,
at the head of the ticket. Mr. Hearat fell
ahort Of election on the face of the ra
tume by aome 1.000 votes'. H contested,
but the ballot boxes have never been
opened. A petition to the supreme court to
burn the ballots wsa recently made by
the corporation counsel. Mr. Hearst re
dded thla move and waa sustained by the
court with the understanding that Mr.
Hearst would furnish at hie own expense
the new ballot boxes needed for the local
prim rie and the regular election In No
vember. ' ,
Meet at Sarateaa' and BaSfalo.
The republican atate convention Is to be
held at Saratoga beginning Tuesday. Sep
tember 25. and will ' continue probably
The democratic state convention Is to
be held st Buffalo beginning the same day
and continuing through Wednesday, or
until a nomination has been s greed upon.
Former Governor B. B. Odell. Jr., aa atate
chairman will call the republican assem
blage to order. Cord Meyer of New fork
la the chairman of the democratic atate
committee, having been elected to that
position for the. Parker and Herrltfk cam
paign two years ago.
Tbe democrats were first to choose a
convention date. The repubtlcana had ap
parently been undecided aa to whether they
should meet before or after the demo
crats Chairman Odell called the atate com
mittee together aoon after the democrats
had announced their decision and the G-or-dlan
knot waa cut by a decision to meet
slmultaneouely with' tha democrats. It
waa argued that If the democrats met flrat
they would place this republican admlnlatra
tlon on the defenslverwhereas If the rt
publicans met first the democrata would
be In a poaitlbn t attack the platform in
convention and get a ' good aupply of po
litical ammunition ' before the public
through the medium of convention ad
dressee. . .r' -".
Th democratic convention promises to be
one of tha liveliest r held In thl atat.
Mr Hearat'a name rill ba placed before
It by the delegate wbo have- been- In
atruc,td to vote for, his nomination, Mr,
Hearst IS likely to 'be attacked by his op
ponent on the ground that he is tha head
of an "outlaw' ticket and that he cannot
be named or Indorsed without turning tha
democratic party over to the' newly, or
ganised Independence" league, which In
cludes both democrats snd repubtlcana In
Its membership. These line of battle hav
already been laid down and there I no
need for conjecture on th point. Just
what effect tha naming of ' a complete
ticket by the Independence league will
have upon the fusion movement suggested
by Messrs. Mack and Connors Is proble
Jerome' Terse1 Aaaoaaeeuaeat.
Another nam to go before the demo
cratic convention la that of the present dis
trict attorney of Iw Tork county, WIN
Ham Traver Jerome. Mr. Jtrom lent
Immeasurably to the Intereat of th situa
tion a few weeks ago by the brief an
nouncement of hla candldacySwhich read:
"In the present shameful condition of
our political life in this state I am will
ing to . run tor th cfflc of governor of
the atate if : the democratic convention
shall nomlnats ma without any understand
ing, expressed or Implicit, other than that,.
It elected, I shall, obey my oath of office
as I understand It .In letter and spirit."
Mr. Jerome made an Independent cam
paign for re-election as district attorney
laat fall and waa successful over the regy
ulur nominees of the democratic, republi
can and municipal ownership parties. He
hss glwaya beer, a democrat, but has on
every occasior. expressed his abhorrence of 'f
so-called political "boasea." Mayor George
0;B. McCl?llan of New Tork City has1 ex-
pressed his preference for Mr. Jerome for
governor and haa announced his Intention
of voting for him at the convention. Mr.
I Jerome is wimout puijucmi macninery ana
came Into the race top late to have hi
' name go before many of the cdunty con
ventions called to name delegates to Buf
falo. If the so-called "regular" democrata
prove unwilling to accept either Mr. Hearst
or Mr. Jerome, because of their Independent
attitudes In the psst, there Is much specu
lation aa to Just whom they will bring be
fore the convention. There has bran talk
of Mayor J. N. Adam of Buffalo; of John
N. Carlisle of Watertown. Of John P.
Stanchfleld of Elm Ira; of Former Judge
D. Cady Merrick, who waa tha democratic
gubernatorial candidate two year a ago; of
Juatloe William J. Gaynor uf Brooklyn, and
Edward M. Bhepard. , Justice Gaynorha
also been urged because of hi Independ
ence. H and Mr. Hesrst have long been
regarded aa political friends snd last fall
It waa said Mr. Hearat ran for mayor only
because he had been unable to Induce Jus
tice Gaynor to take up the fight.

leader of Tammany Hall, and Mayor Mc
Clellan have generally been regarded as
heading tii opposing force In th organi-1
aatlon. Mr. Murphy was said to favor
th nominstion of Hearst, but the latter
In a public statement declared he did not
want Mr, Murphy support.
Th republican factional fight appears to
be as bitter na that among the democrata,
but the adherenta of the republican faith
are not hampered by an "Independent"
movement, although it la admitted the In
dependence league may poll aome re publi

full stat ticket go on the official ballot,
will be felt, however, by th democrats.
Popular opinion arrays Stste Chslrman
Odell agklnst Governor Frank W. Hlgglns
In th struggle for control of the Saratoga
convention and of the republican party
In thla state. Two years ago Mr. Odell
and Mr. Hlgglne were quite Intimate. It
was not long after Governor Hlgglns waa
Inaugurated that ther came 'rumors of
differences existing between the governor
and the atate chairman'. There waa no
open breach, however, until the flght last
winter for the assembly speskershtp. Chair,
man Odell let It be known that hla candi
date for th office was Assemblyman Mor
rltt, of St. Lawrence county. Governor
Hlgglns openly advocated the election of
Assemblyman James W. Wadeworth. Jr.. a
eon of Congressman Wadsworth. who aa
chairman of the house committee on agri
culture came Into prominence this spring
during the meat Investigation at Washing
ton. Rooeerell'e Haad gee a.
During th speakership fight a number
of the legislative leadera were summoned
to Waahlngton and were In conference with
President Roosevelt. When they returned
to Albany there were Immediate-assurances
that young Mr. Wadsworth would be
chosen apeaker. He waa ao chosen on th
first ballot. It then became generally noised
about that the president had aligned hlm
aelf morally if not openly with Governor
Hlgglns and his followers In tb state.
Chairman Odell was nettled at this and
the further report that every effort would
be made to overthrow hla leadership of
the atate committee. He called upon hi
friends for aupport and the fight which
still continue waa begun.
. In th only test vote of the atata com
mittee taken thla year. Chairman Odell
waa accredited with a victory by a margin
of one rot. The friends of Governor
Hlggtna claim that the one absent member
of the committee waa aligned with the
governor and had aent hla proxy te th
Committee, but It arrived too late. Thl
vot. they claim, would have made the
division of the committee a tie. Governor
Hlgglns' friends also declared that too
great significance should not be attached
to the vote, for a new state committee I
to be named thla year.
Governor Hlgglna waa a recent vlaltor to
Oyater Bay, where ha waa In consultation
with the president Thus once more at a
critical Juncture the president haa Implied
hla position without openly stating It. Ha
haa given accent to Governor Hlgglns
visit by Inviting former Lieutennant Gov
ernor Timothy L. Woodruff to luncheon at
Oyster Bay. Mr. Woodruff la one of Mr.
Hlgglna' most outspoken adherenta.
Hlgglas te Not Talklag.
Governor Hlgglna has not openly stated
whether or not he will be a candidate for
renomlpatlon. Chairman Odell has publicly
stated that he la opposed to the renomlna
tlon of Governor Hlgglns on the ground
that the history of the stte has shown
candidates for re-election to be poor can
didates. He thinks a stronger man could be
found elsewhere. Allied with Chairman
Odell ar United States Senator Thomaa C.
Piatt and Lemuel Ely Qulgg. ,
There 1 a wall founded belief that Presi
dent Roosevelt Is lending his Implied Influ
ence to Governor Hlgglns for th purpose
of helping him gain control of the atata
convention. Then It la Intimated that-the
governor will withdraw and hlmaelf nomi
nate hla successor, who will be a man be
lieved to b capable of drawing the votes
of both factions of the party and will also
b cordially approved by President Roose
velt. ' . v
The suggested csndtdstes other than Gov.
ernor Hlgglns are quite numerous . and
cover a wide range of personalities. The
number haa been multiplying aa th day of
the convention approachea. Among them
la Charles F. Hughe, the lawyer, who was
nominated for mayor of New Tork City
last fall by th republicana but declined th
honor. ' Mr. Hughe waa the attorney for
the legislative committee which Investi
gated the gas situation In New Tork City
and the life insurance companies of the
tat. Ex-Governor Odell haa claimed Mr.
Hughes a a candidate and It has also been
auggeated that he wa favored by President
Roosevelt. Mr. Hughee says he has made
no promises to anyone. Chairman Odell is
alao credited with auggestlng ths name of
Secretary of Btate Ellhu Root, now on a
tour of South America.
One of th latest of th auggeated repub
lican candidatea Is PoiAmaater General
George B. Cortelyou, who la also chairman
of the republican national 'committee, and
Mr. Cortelyou Is out with an announcement
that he la giving his attention to the work
of the Poetofflca department. Many of the
namea hsve been suggested without consul
tation with the principles. It Is said, but
have been mentioned merely as possibilities
and as men whom the party mght call upon
In its hour of need.
The republican fight la all the more Inter
esting from ths fact that the party is at
present In power In the state and has been
for several years past.
Hearst's Leasee la the Field.
Tha Independence league, which Is un
Incorporated body with Mr. Hearat a
president, held Its convention In Carnegie
hall, New Tork City, September 11 and
12. It was the largest delegate conven
tion In tha history of vthe slate, aver
1,400 representatives of the various coun
ties being in attendance. There, waa a
move to have tha convention postpone
the making of nominatlona, It being re pro.
sented that a fusion with the democrats
at Buffalo on September 25 waa possible,
aa many -delegates to the democratic con
vention had been Instructed to vot for
Mr. Hearat for governor "first, last and
all the time." The auggestion that '.he
Independenta postpons the making of nom
inatlona rsms from Norman E. Mack,
democratic national committeeman for
New Tork atata and from William J. Con
nora of Buffalo. The latter preaented a
memorial In behalf of hlmaelf and other
delegate to the Buffalo convention.
Tha temper of the delegate wa agalnat
fusion, however, and after an all night
session of tha atate committee, the In
dependence league decided' to nominate a
full atate ticket. Thla wa don amid
much nthuetasm. Mr. Hearat being named
for governor and a complete Hat of candi
date agreed upon and named. Tb plat
