ALL WAS HARMONY.
Republican State Committee Re
elects Its Officers.
Expected Opposition to Chairman
Brookfield Did Not Materialize.
Many Prominent Politicians at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel.
The meeting of the Republican Btate
Committee to-day at the Fifth Avenue
Hotel fur the purpose of reorganiza
tion proved to be ithi.Ii lean interesting
In Its character than was anticipated.
All the old officers were re-elected
without change, William Brookfield.
Chairman; John S. Kenyon, Secretary;
Oen. Samuel Thomas. Treasurer, and
Col. Reuben L.. Fox, Chief Clerk, in ac
cordance with a cut and dried arrange
ment quite In keeping with the usual
tactics of Boss I'lalt, whose Influence
was very perceptible despite his absence
The opposition to Chairman Brook
field's re-election did not develop and the
only signs of disaffection manliestod
came from the Buffalo contingent, rep
resented by Messrs. Scotchard and I'rban,
Who are stll sore over the recent turning
flown of the Erie Countv delegation at
Albany, in the election of George W.
Dunn aa Clerk of the Assembly.
It was rumored before the meeting
that the Buffalo politicians would renew
their protest against the tactics pursued
by the machine at the meeting to-day,
but the question did not come up, and
all that was heard of the matter was a
little ebullition of feeling on the outside.
When Chairman Brookfield called the
Peeling to order In Parlor DR, at the
Ifth Avenue Hotel, about 1L30 o'clock
this morning, all the members were
present, or were represented by proxies,
with the exception of Charles M. Nevins,
of the Fourth Brooklyn District.

Nothing was done at the meeting be
yond the election of officers, and it lasted
only half an hour.
Chairman Brookfield will name an Exe
cutive Committee of seventeen members,
and he said after tne meeting that it
would be composed of about the same
men as last year, with Charles W. Hack
ett as Chairman. He will not announce
it for a day or two.
During tne morning the hotel corrl-
Rors were thronged with Republican pol
Iclans from all over the Slate.
Among them were noticed Senators
Buxton, O'Connor. Pureons, Hlgglns and

I.ouls F. Payne, "Barney" Blglln
and many of the lesser lights.
The meeting for the reorganization of

In previous years.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 1 Although the
lack of a quorum blocked the tariff de

recalling the absentees, only ninety-eight
members, by actusl count, were on the
floor when the House was called to order
at noon to-day.
The prospect for a j'emocrailc quorum
looked gloomy. Still Col. Ike Hill, the
Democratic whip, expressed the opinion
that a quorum of Democrats was In the
Some communications were laid before
the House, and the Speaker announced
the reappointment of MeSBis. Wheeler,
of Alabama; Breckinridge, of Kentucky,
and Hltt, of Illinois, aa the regents of

Immediately thereafter the fight over
the Hawaiian matter was precipitated
by Mr. Boutelle, of Maine.
Although the Democratic members of
the Ways and Means Committee had
been willing to make arrangement to tie
vote two days, tu-niurrow and Saturday,
to this subject, they decided after the
wasting of the day yesterday, through
the persistency of Mr. Boutelle, to shul
the Hawaiian debate out entirely until
the Tariff bill was disposed of.
Accordingly, when Mr. Boutelle called
up his privileged Hawaiian resolution

properly examine Michael Barron, a
printer, of in Cherry street, und take
him to the hospital last Tuesday morn
ing, was delivered to President Porter,
of the Hoar of Charities and Correction,
The report tn practically a vindication
of the surgeons, and Is undoubtedly in
tended hb such.
President Porter told an " Evening
World" reporter this morning that he j
wus not satisfied with the report und j
that the Hoard of charities and Correc
tion would make an investigation for It
self. Barron lived with his brother on the
top floor of the tenement-house IN Cherry
street, keeping " ba-.-htl jr's hall."
Monday ntgnt he attended a hull with
a number of friends. The festivities
lasted until tu-urly fi o'clock Tuesduy
morning. Two of his companions hud
drank to excess, and Barron took upon
himself the task of taking them surely
to their home at N Catharine street.
It was still dark when the party
reached the house, but Rarrnn suc
ceeded in getting the men lo their rooms
and started for home. About 6 o'clock
he wus found at the bottom of the
ttalrway In an unconsciout condition b
a tenant who notified Policeman Tnomae
Heaphy, of the Madison street station.
There whm a ho! of blood under the
man's head and blood upon his lips.
The policeman sent in a call to Oouver

surgeon was Dr. Plttls. According to
the policeman the doctor made a superfi
cial examination and went away after
declaring that it was not a ease for the
I ospltal. The man, he said, was merely
in a drunken stupor.
Barron was tubaaqui ntly removed to
the station-house In an express wagon.
Sergt. Brennan sent in another n to

who responded. He went through the
