On the one record of the Conservative party, in-jki far it has any-record at all in matters of concern to labor, is bno.of'unnlledvpromise and unlimited pretence. It is record which from the financial aide ex- hibits'a gross waste of public funds, with not so mueh as a tingle practical result to be pointed to' inI the shameless extravjgance.

Mr.-Chanler, New York's Demo- cratic candidate for Governor, at Wa- tertown replied to Gov.
