RUTH LAW, GIRL AIR CHAMPION TELLS OF RACE FROM CHICAGO WHY HUGHES LOST OHIO IS SHOWN BY OLD GUARD GREED Antagonism of Leaders to Moose and "Save-Yourself Spirit" of Candidates Resented by People HEAD OF REPUBLICAN PARTY SACRIFICED By GEORGE T.ODELL. Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 20-Ohio is as much to blame for the defeat of Charles E. Hughes as California is. The Progressives of California have been anathematized by the Republican leaders in the East because they voted for Gov. Johnson in such large numbers and failed to vote for Hughes, but the Golden state was lost by only about 4,000 votes and Ohio, which should have been a Republican state this year, was lost to Hughes by over 80,000. If the 24 electoral votes of Ohio had been given to the Republican presidential candidate his election would have been assured without California. It is my purpose to give the names of the men who were responsible for the loss of the Ohio electoral votes to the Republicans and to tell why. The men chiefly responsible are: Myron T. Herrick, Republican nominee for the United States Senate. Frank B. Willis, Republican candidate for governor. Rudolph Hynicka, Republican national committeeman from Ohio. Harry Dougherty, a Republican boss who ran against Herrick for the senatorial nomination. Theodore Burton, former United States senator, who was a candidate for Republican presidential nomination. Charles S. Hatfield, chairman of the Republican state committee. The Republican candidates for Congress with two exceptions. Probably the worst and most selfish game of politics ever played was the one played by the Republican leaders in this state this year. Every candidate was out for himself and Gov. Hughes got but scant courtesy at their hands. Some of them, and this is particularly true of the congressional nominees and Gov. Willis, were openly opposing Mr. Hughes's stand on the Adamson law. Machine Antagonistic. The whole Republican machine was antagonistic to the Progressive leaders in the state, and in the last few days of the campaign, when it was evident to any one who had any political judgment that Ohio was going Democratic, they could not be induced to make a single practical move to get the Progressive vote. Ten days before the campaign closed they made frantic efforts to get Col. Roosevelt to come here and help them out. which he did, as soon as he could CONTINUED ON SEVENTH PAGE.

Four men were killed and four others were seriously injured by the explosion early to-day of the boiler of the tugboat Rambler, lying near Bergen's dock, at the foot of Commercial street, Greenpoint. The tug sunk in twenty feet of water, while the wrecked boiler, flying sixty feet away, together with pieces of the boat's engine, caused thousands of dollars' worth of damage to tugs lying nearby. The dead are: Casey, Eugene, captain, twenty-eight, of 1040 Putnam avenue, Brooklyn. Pitts, Andrew, engineer, thirty. Zane, Frederick, foreman. Esterbrook, Frederick, deckhand. The injured are: Gregory, George, captain of the lighter George Thompson, forty, of 555 Greenwich street; internal injuries; Greenpoint Hospital. Wilbur, Capt. William, fifty, of the tugboat William Brown; internal injuries; Greenpoint Hospital. Osmund, Capt. Frederick, of gravel boat 56, fifty-five, of 101 Third place, Brooklyn; severe lacerations; removed to his home. Captain's First Day on Job. The tugboat was owned by the Russell Brothers Towing Company, of Flushing avenue and Front street, Long Island City. Early to-day Capt. Casey, who had just been promoted to the captaincy and was out on his first day, made the run to Bergen's dock, where it is said he was to have picked up a tow. Lying nearby were a number of other tugs and barges, making the dock a busy place from the accumulation of shipping from the end of last week. The Rambler was near the dock when shortly after 7 o'clock there was a terrific roar from the little b oat. The middeck flew into splinters as the heavy boiler crashed through the deck beams into the air. Sixty feet away a lighter was tied, having on the open deck a new automobile in its shipping case, to be towed to the owner. Wrecked New Automobile. Describing an arc marked by hissing steam, the boiler fell on the lighter, landing fairly upon the new automobile, wrecking the machine and causing much damage to the lighter. In the wake of the flying boiler, large and small pieces of the engine rose, falling on the tugs and other craft. Capt. Gregory was injured while on his lighter, Capt. Wilbur was hit by a piece of flying steel. Capts. Osnund and Geisler were also injured in the same manner. The tug sunk immediately, only the top of her funnel being visible. The other tugs quickly steamed from the scene while the lighters and barges were pulled out. Ambulances from the Greenpoint, St. Catherine's and Eastern District hospitals were called and the injured taken away. Within a few minutes after grappling the bodies of Capt. Casey and Engineer Pitts were recovered, but the bodies of the fireman and deckhand were not found. It is believed they are in the wrecked tug, which will b e raised. The cause of the boiler explosion is not known. Recover Two Bodies The body of Capt. Casey, who was standing in the pilot house at the time of the explosion, was found crushed under the pilot house roof on the Charles Gildersleeve Company's barge Andrew, moored fifty feet from the Rambler. The body of Engineer Pitts was brought up by grappling irons, but those of deckhand and fireman could not be found. The police believe they are caught in the wreckage. Divers and a derrick have been sent for, and the hull will be raised to prevent its obstructing traffic. The cause of the explosion is not known. 17,477 New Y.M.C.A. Members.

It was expected that the eight-hour day fight and probably the plans for co-operation of the brotherhoods with the American Federation of Labor would be discussed, if only briefly. The leaders will see the President at 5.45 p. m., and at 6 o'clock the Presi-dent will confer with Representative Adamson, author of the present eight-hour law and vice-chairman of the joint congressional committee which began an investigation of the railroad situation to-day. In the President's address to Congress next month he will make recommenda-tions for the remainder of the legisla-tive programme which was unfinished when Congress adjourned. The brotherhood leaders oppose that part of the President's recommendations which proposes investigation of railroad controversies before a strike or lockout is permitted. The American Federation of Labor has also gone on record against the recommendation. Representative Casey, of Pennsylvania, who acted as go-between in the nego-tiations of the brotherhood leaders and administration officials at the time the Adamson bill was up for passage in the House, arrived in town to-day and ex-pected to have a conference with the labor men during the afternoon. Mr. Casey said he had been conferring with Democratic leaders on the railroad labor situation. Brotherhood officials held a short meeting soon after noon and discussed the situation and the plans for their visit to President Wilson. --- Ban Johnson Does Not Oppose a Third League --- Chicago, Nov. 20.-Ban Johnson, president of the American League, "would not oppose" the formation of a third major league, he said to-day, when talk concerning such an organization was brought to his attention.

The entente troops are pursuing the fleeing [[?]] [[foe]] and have occupied villages north of Monastir, taking prisoners as they advanced, the dispatch adds. The Serbians, according to these ad-vices, are delaying entering Monastir because of the fire and explosions which have virtually destroyed the city, from which the population has fled. --- German Reinforcements Rushed to Macedonian Front --- Berlin, Nov. 20 (By Wireless to Say-ville).-New German formations have reached the Macedonian front, it is of-ficially announced.

Hoover, chairman of the American Commission for Relief in Belgium, said to-day: "Intrinsically, the removal of even 250,000 workmen from Belgium and northern France would not materially affect the number of mouths which have to be fed, as this number would dimin-ish the total by only about 3 per cent.

[[/CAPTION]] --- Touraine Warned by Torpedoed Ship Escapes Trap Fatal to Columbian --- Passengers on the French liner Touraine, in to-day from Bordeaux, told of their narrow escape from being sunk by a torpedo while twenty miels off the French coast. They sighted a small tramp steamer which was flying a signal indicating she had lost a rudder and was in need of assistance. Capt. Caussin, of the Tou-raine, at once stopped his vessel and sent a boat to the assistance of the steamer. In a few moments, however, he received a wireless from the steamship Columbian, saying: "Have been torpedoed. Beware of tramp steamer asking for assistance." Touraine Hurries on Way. Recognizing that he was being led into a trap, Capt. Caussin put on speed, overtook the Touraine's boat, which was hooked up quickly out of the sea, and got out of danger as fast as he could. The tramp steamer got under way very soon after. William Thaw, who is a first lieuten-ant in the French army and a member of the Franco-American aviation corps, was one of the 177 passengers on the Touraine. He is here on a three weeks' visit to his mother, who was at the pier to meet him. "I have entirely recovered from the injury to my arm and expect to go back to France in three weeks," he said.

Johnson, of this city, also a member of the French aviation corps, was another passenger.

But on the west side two companies of infantry, headed by the post band, were marching out to drill. The Band Played On. The young woman heard the music and thought it was in her honor, so she swooped down and landed close beside the band. In coming to earth she did an unusual thing. Instead of flying against the wind, which was blowing from the south, she headed north and landed with the wind. She kept her motors go-ing for a time after she landed and while she was skidding over the parade ground. Gen. Wood, Major Hartmann and Henry Woodhouse and Augustus Post, of the Aero Club of America, jumped into an automobile and sped to her.
