Before sentence was Imposed Robert

leaders here today.
The trouble began with the lockouts of
large numbers of workmen last week In

of discontent have since been heard

of the British Isles, but thus far erup

NEW YORK, Sept. 17,-The Impeach

for direct primary reform played an Im
portant part In yesterday's democratic
primaries In New York state. The gov

sues were responsible for the defeats the
regular democratic organisation suffered
tn several localities.
In Buffalo and Rochester, the largest
cities outside of New York, the regular
democratic organizations which lined up
with Tammany hall In the SuUer Im
peachment fight, were' badly beaten. In
Albany county former State Committee
man McCabe, clerk of the senate, a firm
Tammany adherent, came so neardefeat
that the party leadership may remain In
doubt until the official count.
In New York City the Sulser Issue was
not apparent. Only one of the democratic
district leaders was unhorsed and this
contest was purely local.
Sulzer's threat to make the democratlo
assemblymen smart for defeating his di
rect primary measure was recalled today
when primary returns showed that four
of the assemblymen who voted against
this measure and for his Impeachment
were defeated for renomlnatlon In Buf
falo. All five democratic nominees for
assemblymen In Monroe county, which In

opponents of Tammany hall. Only one of

LOS ANGELES, Sept J7 To that area
ot the city which comprises the business
section and a portion of the cheap hotel
district the city and county authorities
confined their energies today In search
for the sender of the dynamite bomb
which wag received 'through the malls
yesterday by General Harrison Gray Otis,
proprietor ot the Los Angeles Times.
All were agreed that the maker of the
bomb lived In this district because the
package containing the bomb was placed
In a parcel post box In the downto'wn
section and carried to postofflce station
C, which handles mall for the greater
portion of the business district and a
large section of the east side.
The dynamite used In the Infernal ma
chine was that extremely high-powered
explosive known as "85 per cent" the
same as was used by James B. McNa
mara In blowing up the Times building
October 1, 1910. The legal limit for explo
sives In Los Angeles county Is 40 per
cent nltro, and police and county offi
cials directed efforts today to learning
what purchases of 85 per cent dynamite
had been made at powder factories re
cently. One of the theories discussed today was
that the bomb might have been sent by
some foreigner, agitated over the Mexican
question and the possibility of Interven
tion by the United States.
