The following letter from Mr.' Hearst
I am advised of your Intention to
meet and protest1 against tin rraHar
..-. ana counting
.. ox ine oaiiots on Tuesday. I thank you
. on behalf of many thousands of cltlsena
deprived of the right to rote, or whose
votes were nullified, and I thank von on
behalf of the entire city, which cannot
endure a perversion of Us will. My
own Interest in the matter is that of
every otner eitlsen, no greater. I did
not at any time desire the office that
was given me by the cltlsena on Tues
day. As I have said before. I should
v be glad, if it were possible for' me as
an honorable man, to evade the respon
sibility that the office of mayor wUl
put upon me. -
'"But I am determined as you are that
everything possible shall be done to pro-
' tect the people against the man and the
methods that would make a farce of our
system of government and remove the
power from the votes of the ''people to
the secret scheming of corporations and
their agents. . The campaign which has
Just closed and the extraordinary vote
polled without political organisation... or
.any other agency save public Indignation
against corrupt boss methods, prove that
the people are 'thoroughly tired of city
rule by publlo corporations through ma
chine bosses. . ',
"The election of Tuesday-was a power
ful protest against corrupt ' political
methods and dlahonest city administra
tion, rather than a . tribute to any man
"or men. --- ,
"The crimes' committed at this election
prove how great was the need of auch a
protest by the people. ,: t : ' . ' .,
-s WUl rash rroseoutlos, ' "
I am glad that your publlo-splrlted
action will tonight give concrete expres
sion1 to publlo Indignation. I have no
- doubt as to the outcome of the protest
that you are to make. It is not conceiv
able that the people should endure for
one moment a crime that, If tolerated,
must be utterly destructive of our srs-
tem of government. I have perfect con
fidence that the courts will deal with the
most serious offense against the whole
people speedily and effectively, a they
. deal with offenses against the Individual.
"At the same time dotermlnedjacUonll
"JCnd trmratlve are required. The growth T
and arrogance of trusts and the poli
ticians in the past teach tie that the
business of protecting all the people !
too oftert nobody's business at all.
"I propane to make it 'my personal
business to see to.lt that the men en
gaged in the-out rages of Tuesday lsst
are punlehed If that can be brought
about legally and to see to It that the
cltlsena who voted for honest govern
ment nn that day shall not be diafran
rhlsed by the criminal methods of des
perate and defiant bosses. .

are being made to-have a reserve force

launched by rail on different points of

Prompt suppression of the real Polish

reason to suppose that a revolution In
Poland could succeed.' Germany has
troops enough there to suppress any at

must be a secret printing establishment
which the government baa been unable
