. ANP GIVB THKIH REASON'S FOR PRK
I FEHRING ITS PLAN.
Kx-Senator Thomas C. Platt received so many
t.l cram*, letters mid messages yesterday that he
had considerable difficulty in finding time ts rend
nil of them. They covered his oases table at No.
m gansdeny Several inches deep, ami others, sent
to him at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, obscured tho
surface of his private writing ile.*k in his home
quarters Inst evening. Meany all of th-^se ssessnges
breathed the same spirit atnl came from loyal, de?
voted and intelllp-ent Republicans, who hnve only
th-- PSOOSBS ami unify of the party at heart. They
annl.Mided thc ex-Senator's course in relation to the
Anti-Mnchlne Republican OrKanlzntlon of this city
i:n 1 SOeeaSied fully 'n hts view that the movement
is likely to prove of Immense benefit to the Repub?
lic.>:i cruise by bringing up to its active support new
blood, an energetic, "hustling" element, capable of
?alli SS Slag the voting power of the gerty especially
In pnrts of the city where it hn? been weak and
unable to rench the classes which are needed to
build up the party organizr.tlon and make lt efli
Mr. Platt also had many callers who expressed
satattsatlsllj Hie same sentiment* and who told
aim that the Republicans of the interior had been
watching the progress of affairs ol a political
character la this etty, .hat they were pleased to
aotS bis dtspostttOU t'> ofter encouragement te the
younger element, and were certain that the ex
S.na'.or would have committed a grave error had he
dene otherwise. Among these callers were ex
Cons^eesrnsn Henry O. Rurleigh. of Whitehall;
> ns^esssses Jong Van Voorhls. of Rocheiver, ex
Smator Frank Hts otk. of Syracuse; William
Barnes, of Albany Attorney-General Hancock,
Ri its Controller Roberts, State Treasurer Colvin.
gtate Engineer Adams and U,ci ird Marcy. They
red Mr Platt that the people wer. with him
and hil confidence in his political Judgment and
MR FLATT WAS Ml CH PLEASED.
The ex-Senator was naturally pleased with such
a multitude of assurances of trust and good will.
He remarked last evening that another source of
ajtatlgeattou to him was the attitude of the Re?
publican press of the State, and that he had re?
ceive 1 opies of at least thirty of the leading Re*
publican newspapers in various counties, which
had approved hi!-- course in respect to the new
organisation. Some of Mr. Flatt's friends were
saying lest syealng that official patronage had
not shown Itself an element In the present con?
troversy on his BM* of the question, and drew
attention to the fact that whatever there was of
Federal patroaagx In the collector'* the Sur
re) rr"* the Appraiser's and the 1'nited States

centrated mainly in the XX 1st Assembly l>ls
t ? l.ad been used in opposition to the movement
WhiCh Mr. Platt favored. Several Republicans ex?
pressed themselves freel) yesterday on the ques?
tions at Issue, which have grown out of thc ad?
vocacy of rival plans ot reorganisation in New
Torn. Some of Ins arguments used are presented
WHAT THOMAS U IA MKS HAS TO SAY.

CHAIRMAN II.U'KETT ON TH1 S1TFATION.
Charles W. Hacftett, chairman of th-' Executive
Committee of the Republican Stat* Committee, said
last night: "The at hacks agon Mr. Platt Which
nave appeared in the newspapers lately as emanat?
ing from various more or less well-known people
are most unjust, as well as Without war:, nt. That
gentleman is quite as much entitled to his opinion
as any other member of the party, and he is surely
so good a Republicen ss to be north listening to
with patient courtesy, to say th'- least. It is hardly
BSOessery for ms i" recount his services t.i the

Republican vtcjfory lant fall, with the promise lt
brings for this and following years. It ls, per?
haps, not necessary to atate that until within the
last taro yean I have not been associated with
Mr. Platt In party work. My sincerity will no:
be doubted, therefore, when I say that I have
never found a more hearty and earnest luborer for
the good of the whole party than he. I have never
known him to ask anything for himself, nor haw
I *ver witnessed any attempt al What ls called
?bossism' by him. It is the old story refold -those

DgtfgJCT OK THE CoMMlTTKK OF THIRTY'S FLAN.
"The plan of the Committee of Thirty ls a plan
potten np simply for the purpose of enabling the
Cnlon I teague Crab to control the County Tom?
min. .- and to rule the Republican organlRatlon in
New-York by some UnlOfl fiSSlllS boa* line of the
strongest reasons for believing that Hie Committee
ot i nirty's plan ls a mischievous on.- for the pans
organisation ls this; After tin- election district
organisations have chosen the delegates to the
Assembly District conventions, and those conven?
tions have performed their office bj electing dele?
gates to the Couiitjr Committee and adjourned suv
die, and after the County Committee has sleeted .1
chairman of the County Committee, thal chairman,
whoever he may be. ls to become principal ruler and
boss over the whole party organisation, as far aa
lt is made effective in campaign* He appoints
all specie! committees relative to County Com?
mittee work or Nie campaign, and lt is needless to
say these will be his friend*. He ried only choose
persons snfllciently subservient to lils purpose to bc
beyond the reach of all criticism or tne possibility
of changing his plana for a whole year, lie need
consult no one; h.- can be Influenced hy no one, un?
less willing to be so Influenced. The County Com
mittee which win be brought together under me
Committee of Thirty's plan is bound to b* in re?
spect to a number of election districts In which no
organization is established, a .-ham SO fur :is actual
representation ls concerned. This will certainly be
true with respect to two-liftlis of thc election dis?
tricts In the City of New-York, lt is easy to seo
that the chairman of thc County Committee needs
but few delegates from the rest of the city to make,
with those where no organisation ls had. an actual
controlling mnjorlty In the County Committee.
When this ls done the Republicans In the city
of New-York will have a far worse organisation
for every righteous party purpose than they iver
had befjre. The difficulty of establishing a fair
organization under th>- Committee of Thirty's plan
throughout the entire city la vastly Increased by
th.- existence of the Provision,-*. Organisation, arhlch
already has so large a popular following of im?
mense strength and enthusiasm among Republican*
If the Committee of Thirty intended by their plans
to invent a method patterned correctly upon tbs
organization of Tammany Hall, then they have
Succeeded in their work, but they have certainly
aacriflced the good opinion of thousands of Re?
publicans who have examined their plan, and who
w.ll always refuse to join .in Organisation pat?
terned after such methods. Thc criticisms which
have emanated from the Union League ("uh since
Mr. Plait's Interview tl ive certainly put the authors
of those criticisms In a very ridiculous attitude
before New-York Republicans. Had Mr. Platts
opinion of the Committee of Thirty's plan ben
favorable instead of the reverse, he would keve
been an object of worship to all those gentlemen,
and Ids approval would have been received with
pongs i praise; tm; being unfavorable, be ls re?
minded that he is only a resident of Tioga County.
It is a matter of concern to Republican* of every
county in the State whether Republicans In any
other county are prop* rly and effectively or?

FIRST PRgglDRNT OF TH1 REPUBLICAN CLUB.
Bz-Judge Frederick <J. (Jeilney, who was flu- (irs!
president of tho Republican club, and who has
don.- good service in regard to the parti,
said i:i regard to the mw organiza?
tion: "I cordially approve lt. There is
no use denying that the Republican young blood ot
thia city tires of the old leaders. 1 have nothing
to say against their usefulness, Intelligence, loyalty
or succcsse* but the younger element want rcpre
??? .ration, and the older members of the party,
who still revere lt and desire to work with lt. are
perfectly willing that these younger men shall put
tho harness on. 'Old men for counsel, young men
for action.' This has been demonstrated In the sue
cess of Mr. i^uigg. Now. a word about Mr. Platt:

wi.I l) <k toto lt thoroughly y i will find that ll
is a cheap device of th.- enemy to make Mr Platt

"Mr. Flatt's Judgment regarding the necessities

At 9 o'clock an enthusiastic gathering of the

present. The meeting was presided over by one
of the operatives, who, on opening the meeting.
compared the wages of thc Washington Mills with
those of mills In Providence and Fall River. Italian
and Herman operatives addressed the meeting In

most every one Indoors. Western and Southern trains
| on the roads running Into Jersey City and Hoboken
were delayed for a time west of the Delaware,
The pennsylvania Railroad kept all Its local trains
dose to the schedule. Their Western trains, bound
In, were a little late. The Erle experienced little
difficulty, aa the storm centre was stffl to ihe
south of Ita route. The Lackawanna, which over
the greater part of Ita way paral.eis the Krle,
also reported all trains on time.
The ferry boats on all the lines were the chief
cause of delay. The pilots had difficulty in picking
their way through the driving snow, which at times
was aa thick as fog.
The Staten Island ferry experienced more or less
delay In running Hs boats on the long trip from the
Hattery to St. Oeorge. The trip ls almost four miles
long, and the boata were exposed to the full fury
of the blast as lt swept across the I'pper Hay. On
some of the trips a number of the passengers were
on the l?ng Island and New-Jersey shores the
storm hud a free sweep. The sea created by the
wind flashed high upon the beaches and did consid?
erable damage. I^are In the evening one vessel iras
reported ashore between Mont.iuk Point and Cape
May. The lone vessel was the two-masted schooner
Sally, Captain George Ward, of Tottenvtlle, S. I.,
for Cape May. The schooner left Tottenvllle at 9
o'clock yesterday morning. Immediately after clear?
ing the Horseshoe and rounding Sandy Hook the
I schooner was caught In the swen which preceded the
i storm. She struggled to put to sea, but at th.it time
could not catch ?uffictent wind to carry her out as
the roll of the sea, carried uer In toward the beach.
About midday she went ashore off Life-saving
Station No. 5. at West End, Long Branch. The
waves carried her to within one hundred and fifty
feet of the beach line. She struck on a bar and be?
gan to go to pieces. The life-saving crew rescued
Captain Ward and his four men. Tney were John
Wood, Phillp Gerry, George Kill and Alexander
Robinson. The Sally was a fifty-four-ton schooner.
Bhe Went to pieces on the bir.
From Coney Island to Fire Island considerable
damage was done to the beaches. Like the crews
on the Jersey coast, the men on !<ong Island were
on the alert for disabled vessels coming ashore.
Along the Sound In Westchester the storm drove
a number of small boats from their moorings and
Hooded some of the low land beyond City Island.
A report has been received at Far Rockaway
from the Arverne Life-saving Station that a vessel
was stranded opposite the Arverne Hotel. The life?
saving crew could not go to the relief of the ves?
sel on account of the blinding snowstorm and the
heavy sea. It was Impossible up to a late hour, to
gel any particulars from there, ns all communica?
tion had been cut oft by the terrific gale.
The storm Interfered considerably with the trol?
ley cars In the suburbs. Those In Long Island
City were almost completely stopped. Those who
returned to Lone- Island city after th" the.itro hid
to walk home. The snowploughs In use made little
Headway against the snow.
All the employes of the l?ng Island Railroad
were held at their posts during the nlKht. The
Qenersl Manager. E H. Reinold.--, and Superin?
tendent Hlood remained at the station in Hun" r's
Point all night directing affairs. A few minutes
nft.-r ll o'clock every snowplough on the road
started out to clear the tracks, and keep the rails
open for traffic In th? morning.
