Utica. N. V.. July 2. — The home-coming of
Congressman James S. Sherman to-night was
made lac occasion of such a demonstration as
has ran-"' been seen i:. this section of the state.
Tie welcome to the Republican candidate for
the Vice-Presidency was a non-partisan affair
and to £ great extent personal, as the Con-
B«aaaian> recovery from his recent somewhat
alarm* 13 ? illness gave added reason for a public
rejoicing on his safe return.
A similar demonstration marked the home
ccnsing of Horatio Seymour, a nominee for the
Presidency forty years ago. but the city and
surrounding .districts have increased many
times in population since then, and in point of
numbers the outpouring to-night has never
The city had assumed a carnival air early in
the day and for several days various commit

b reception to an honored son and wat given
by citizens of the city, assisted by many thou
sands from the other cities and towns of Cen
tra! New York.
The parade -was nearly two miles long, and as

from the station, and a? the line of march fol

of the parade hid reached his home before the

booming af cannon, the ringing of bells and the
blowing of whlatlea A searchlight was played
upon hjs r:"' v a TP car and followed his carriage
for a Daaßfderable distance.
Mr Sherman alighted from the car without
tfsistance and stepped directly to the carriage
which awaited him. Drs. Carter, of Cleveland,
and Gibson, of this city, rode with him, the
members of his family preceding In an automo

but showed not the slightest signs of fatigue

DRESSER VILLA SOLD.
Oyster Bay Property Purchased
by W. J. White.
The villa on Center Island. Oyster Bay, Long
Island, owned and occupied for many years by
Mrs. Danie! Le Roy Dresser, was sold yesterday
by S. Oagood Pel! & Co. to W. J. White. The
purchase price was about $300,000. The prop
erty is considered in realty circles as "one of
the most beautiful and most costly improved
properties" in tile north shore region of Long
Before their- marital difficulties. ;i nd particu
larly at the time whin Mr Dresser was. one of
the most prominent figures in financial centres,
Mr. and Mrs. Dresser spent many days at their
I Center Island home, where they frequently en
tertained many persons prominent In society.
Mrs. Dresser had a great fondness for her
charming country home, which is surrounded by
trees of vigorous growth and situated almost
in the centre of a large tract of land laid out
in lawn effects.
From almost every part of the house a com
rr.andin,? view of Long Island Sound may be
had. Mr.?. Dresser chose the property as a
place for a country b me, and purchased it. so
she saij in an affidavit presented last year by
her counsel to Justice Blanchard, of the Su
preme Court, in whi b she asked for a separa
tion from her husband. In that affidavit she
also averred that the failure of her husband
about fiv-? years ago, principally as a result of
his connection w ith the Shipbuilding Trust, had
left her practically penniless. She bought the
Centre It-land home with a part of the money
she inherited from her father.
The contract for the sale of the property was
signed yesterday by Gordon W. Burnham. Mrs.
Dresser Is said to be in South Dakota, where
she intends to remain for some time, according
Mrs. Dresser la a daughter of the late Doug
lass W. Burnham. She was married to Mr.
Dresser on November liO. 1889. at St. Luke's.
In IST)?., on the death of her father, she in
herited about $300,000.
Mr. White, the buyer of the property, intends
to spend a large sum in improving it.
This is the j-eeond large sale of villa prop
erty in the north shore section of Long Island
this week. Henry C. Phipps. of Pittsburg. pur
chased on Wednesday the Stow estate property
at Wheatley Hills. Roslyn, Long Island, for
about $500,000. S. Osgood Pell & Co were al*o
the brokers in that transaction.

JAMES S. SHE
VERBAL BETTING LEGAL
COURT DEFINES XEW LA W.
Aimed Only at Bookmakers and
the Pool sellers.
Down at the racetrack there was a sigh of
satisfaction yesterday when the news was
flashed over the wire that Justice Bischoff had
decided that verbal belting was legal This
was the outcome exfjected by the racing men in
the habeas corpus test case of Melville Collins,
and with his discharge by the jutsice the vindi
cation of "gentlemen's bets" was accepted as
assured. Justice Bischoff virtually upheld the
contentions of counsel for the Coney Island
Jockey Club to the effect that the new anti
betting- law was aimed at bookmaking and pool
selling and does not apply to the citizen who is
willing to hazard something on his judgment.
When the decision was handed down yesterday
afternoon Police Commissioner Bingham was not
at his office, but "Dan" Slattery, his secretary,
said that the Commissioner would apply to-day
to the Corporation Counsel for advice. Acting
District Attorney Elder of Kings County, whu
has been in communication with Governor
Hughes regarding the new law, said that he
could not make any statement until he took the
time to go over Justice Bischoff's decision. He
intimated, however, that he felt that even under
the construction of the court the law would be
sufficient to slop professional bookmaking and
gambling. Also, he said, if he thought Jt neces
sary, he would appeal the case.
"When the news reached the racetrack, just
before the first race was run. it spread like
wiidfire, and inside of ten 1 minutes everybody
present seemed to know that a favorable de
cision, so far as the making of verbal bets was
concerned, had been rendered. While there was
more or less rejoicing, there was no change in
the general order of things, and the betting was
confined, as heretofore, to the man-to-man kind.
There was no passinp Of money, so far as could
be seen. and. of course, no bets were registered.
Charles Bolinger was arrested in the field for a
violation of the new statute in aeceptirg money.
but otherwise the police and plain clothes men
found nothing to do.
Schuylei L. Parsons expressed satisfaction
ever the decision, but paid that the Coney Island
Jockey Club would not countenance anything
that approached a violation of the law, and that
every effort would be made to see that the new
statute was observed to the letter.
' ENDS POLICE CENSORSHIP.
It was the general opinion among tho^e who
stand high in the councils of the Jockey Club
thnt the decision Of the court would relieve the
situation materially, if for no other reason than
that it would do away with police censorship in
making verbal bets. One prominent member of
the Jockey Club expressed the opinion that as
verbal betting was not a violation of the new
statute, those who wished to wager money could
find a moan? of doing so, and that under the
circumstances the sport could live and perhaps
prosper by cutting down stakes and purses.
The more optimistic rejoiced openly and said
that rm ing would go on indefinitely, while those
who had predicted the death of racing in this
state took a far more hopeful view of the situa
tion than at any time since the passage of the
George Wheelock, the one-time president of
the Metropolitan Turf Association, said that the
decision of Just ice Bischoff was a good one for*
the poolrooms, but he did not see how it would
improve conditions at the track to any extent
Another one-time bookmaker took the opposite
view and said he did not see how the poolrooms
could be henefited if they could not get the in
formation from the track, and that under the
ruling a system of credit betting could be es
tablished In due time by the formation of one
or more clubs, following out to some extent the
idea of the English method.
Justice Bischoff in reviewing the history of
the attempts to stop racetrack gambling said:
It may be that since the adoption of the con
stitution of 1894. declaring the popular will that
every form of gambling be unlawful, the Legis
lature- should properly proceed to make the
simplest bet or hazard a crime, but whatever
the devised policy, it may be said that that
body has not yet done so, and. Indeed, when
legislation was proposed at the last session In
the form of an amendment of th« racing law
(Chapter 570, Laws of 1895), directly prohibit
ing Individual bets upon the result of a horse
race, and punishing a violation by Imprisonment,
the proposed amendment did not become a law.
Because the provisions of Section 351 of the
penal Cod* do not, in their import vrol-.il.it the
jict tt itli which this relator (a charged, according
t-i the views expressed In this memorandum,
and there being no charge ««f a violation of any
other of tin penal statutes, he Is entitled to be
discharged from custody.
The court then took up the facts in the case
Of Collins and his $5 bet on Hotspur. "In this
proceeding," said Justice Bischoff. "I am to
determine whether the successful bettor's receipt
of the money or thins wagered :r made a crime
by the section referred to." After sstting forth
the statute in full, the justice said.
The particular words pointed to by the Dis
trl t Attorney us applicable to the present case
arr- "or Jinv person who receives, registers, re
cords or forward*, or purports or pretends to re
ceive register, record or forward. In any manner
whatsoever, any money, thing or consideration
of value, bet or wagered, by or for any other
person, or sells book upon any such result,'" and

night court for their release on bail, but the
man who appeared before Magistrate Kernochan

retreat when the magistrate fixed the amount
at |20,000 bail.
The arrest was made in the office of the Hap

stenographers and twenty-five bookkeepers
knew that their employers had been taken into
custody. All the books of the Hapgoods com

to Police Headquarters by the detectives.

COL. WATTERSOX ANGRY.
Calls Cleveland Resolution Act of
"Hypocrites" and "Ghouls."
Louisville, July 2. — Commenting to-day on the
report ,rom New York last night that ex-Judge
Alton B. Parker had been selected to present
a resolution at the Denver convention on th«?
death of Graver Cleveland. Colonel Henry Wat
terson said: ,
The attempt to drag the dead body of Grove*
Cleveland from its new made grave int. the
tumult of a national convention will deceive no
one. An invasion of the grief of the noble lady
who weeps amid the silence and the solitude
of the granite hills, a blow at party concord, it
is the act of shameless hypocrites. Nor was
ever a professional ghoul inspired by a more
mercenary spirit, because the sole aim and end
of the Murphy-Conners crowd, aided by Judge
Parker, is the perpetuation of the ascendancy
of the Belmont-Ryan combination, to which
Democracy owes its last ignominious and well
deserved e'efeat. It was Belmont-Ryan money
that financed Judge Parker's campaign for the
nomination in 1904. It was Belmont-Ryan
money that nominated him; and it was the
Belmont-Ryan tag that made an anti-trust gov
ernment under such a brand absurd and im
It seemed fitting that, having made sacrifices
for predatory wealth. Judge Parker should have
his recompense in a rich law practice in the
city of Now York. He has had it, and with it
he should rest well content. That he should
emerge !rom this highly paid obscurity to make
trouble through sheer malevolence were piti
able, indeed; but that he should appear, backed
by money of the trust magnates and traction
thieves, appealing to Jefferson and Tilden. the
dead body of Cleveland stretched upon the dis
secting table, is disgraceful.
It is not only disgraceful, but its motive is
grotesquely and transparently obvious. The
wing of the Democratic party in the State of
New York to which Judge Parker and the group
with which he is now acting belonged was the
David Bennett Hill wing. , They were the in
veterate, the implacable enemies of Grover
Cleveland. They hated him. and he hated them.
Although, amid the gloom of defeat, a kind of
truce was reached, there was never a real
amnesty or oblivion on either side, so that the
scheme* to recall the shade of Cleveland and to
set this up as a death's head in the comedy of
a mock luneral would be too dastardly and too
ghastly for belief if it were not the last des
perate play of a clique of discredited politicians,
seeking to rule or ruin at any cost.
Standing about the open grave of Mr. Cleve
land, those of us who knew him but did not
always a] prove him or agree with him were not
only willing that bygones be bygones, but that
the good alone should live after him. He Is
dead. He sleeps with those that went before,
from Jefferson to Tilden, and history' ran be
trusted to do him no injustice. Resurrected at
Princeton and proclaimed at Denver, his name
spells firebrand and only firebrand, and fire
brand is the sole initiative and purpose of the
bodysnatehere who purpose to use it to conjure
dissension while they try to corrupt delegates.
In Mr. Bryan and a reunited party Demo
crats saw hope of victory. ' m none other was
there th-> smallest hope of union. That they
reason truly has beer, shown by the fifel that,
with the Ryan-Relmont "barret" on tap and its
agents flying about in every direction, state
after state, refusing to be tampered with, or
tainted, has declared for the Nebraskan. Seeing
•his. Judge Parker is put forward to deliver the
final strike of the bravo, and. under the pre
tence of honoring the memory of Cleveland, to
plunge a blade, reeking with poison, artfully
prepared, into the heart of Democracy. That
be should lend himself to such a villany will
engulf him in the scorn of honorable men and
the detestation of the thoughtful Democrats
here is no more reason why a Democratic
National Convention should go out of its way to
signalize one former Democratic President than
another, why it should rush upon Cleveland with
a frenzy of words thin, with a hysterical shriek.
it should rush upon Buchanan: each. Buchanan
and Cleveland, having had the misfortune to
divide th.? party. The spectacle in the case of
Mr. Buchanan would lack common sense. In
the case of Cleveland. it lacks both common
sense and common decency. As well dig up the
will of Mr. Tilden. which Judge Parker decided
against the instructions and wishes of the Sage
of Greystone. and make it the subject of eulogy,
for the sake of controversy. As well invoke the
spirits of the warring Democrats of ISM and
seek to force the Douglas men to pay tribute
to the Breckinridge men. Under any condition
and from any quarter th*> proposal to revitalize
old quarrels by preamble and resolution on the
threshold of a national movement would be
thrown out as insane Coming from Conners |
and Murphy, from B*lrrnnt and Ryan, from

All Democrats, without regard to factional
affiliations, applaud the suggestion coming from
New York, that the national convention should
take the first opportunity of honoring the mem
ory of Mr. Cleveland, but most of those who
have expressed themselves on the subject are of .
the opinion that the resolution adopted should
not contain anything over which ther* could ba
the slightest difference of opinion. The Sew
York resolution, which was made public last
night, is denounced • by such Bryan leaders as
Mayor James C. Dahlman, of Omaha, and Judge
N. E. Wade, of lowa, the member of the na
tional committee from that state. They de
clare that its adoption would be a direct slap
at Bryan, and insist that in giving it out for
publication ' the New York delegation Intended
to disparage me Nebraskan. The ; portions of
the resolution which particularly aroused the
ire of the friends of Mr. Brian relate to Mr.
Cleveland's record in maintaining the integrity
of the courts and finance, the paragraphs being
He respected the integrity of our courts, and
so Insisted upon strict enforcement of ib> law
that every honest man or interest might be pro
tected, and all offenders punished, without fear
He maintained the public credit and honor,
stood firm as a rock in defence of sound princi

CONSIDERED ATTACK OX BRYAN.
It was said to-day by Mayor Dahirr.an that
these expressions are thinly veiled attacks a
Mr. Bryan, on his well known attitude on th*
question of adopting an anti-injunction plank.
and his position in ISOG and 1900 on the money
question. "These questions have no proper
place.*" said Mr. Dahiman. ' "in resolutions in
tended only to honor the name of the late Mr.
Cleveland. Mr. Bryan's personal tribute to the
memory of the late ex-President was of a char
acter proving that no man honored Mr Cleve
land more, or would go further in giving hiia
credit for advancing the interests of the Demo
cratic party. It is true that Mr. Bryan and Mr.
Cleveland had different view% on many ques
tions of party policy, and. with the rare tact
which he always exhibits. Mr. Bryan refrained
from any allusions that might provoke strife in
the party. It is my opinion that the Democratic
National Convention, in adjourning- out of re
spect to Mr. Cleveland's memory, should follow
Mr. Bryan's example."
Steps were at once taken by members of tha
committee on convention arrangements to hea.i
off the introduction of the Parker resolution In
the convention. They were unanimously of the
opinion that it would provoke discussion and
possibly a tight, which they desired to avoid.
Several members of the committee who do not
care to be publicly quoted did not fcesitate to
say. however, that in their opinion an argument
in the convention over such a resolution as thin
would be disgraceful and injure the party in the
eyes of the country.
It was therefore determined to take imme
diate steps to ward off- any such possibility, and
at the instance of Roger C. Sullivan, of Illinois,
it was decided to prepare a resolution which,
while honoring the memory of Mr. Cleveland,
would offer no opportunity for acrimonious ---
putes in the convention.
PLAN* to head off PARKER.
The Bryan people, having possession of th»
temporary organization, decided that the Cleve
land resolution shall be presented t» the con
vention by a man who will be recognized by-
Temporary Chairman Bell, immediately after
his speech. If Mr. Parker stil! desires to hrin^
his resolution b*for<» the convention, it must be
offered «.<« a «t;bstitute for the one which will be
presented by the Bryan people.
R. M. Johnston, the Texas member of th«
committee on convention arrangements, said:
• -if that Parker resolution is introduced in the
convention it will raise all sorts of a row. The
friends of Mr. Bryan do not propose that, under
the guise of a resolution honoring Grover Cleve
land, Mr. Bryan shall be attacked and his poli
cies for the last twelve years held up to rebuke."
A less serious view was taken of th* Parker
resolution by Francis A. Day. secretary to Gov
ernor Johnson and one of the managers of his
campaign. >'.r. Day maid: "I certainly think
that ihe convention should adopt a resohition in
honor of Mr. Cleveland, and the one prepared
by Judge Park a r seem 3tometo be entirely
proper and to fIU the bill completely."
At the Gray headquarters Josiah Marvel said
that Mr. Cleveland was a world character and
that to his memory the highest possible tribute
should be paid. He had not read the Parker
resolution, and he said that the wisdom of
adopting it had not been called to Ma attention.
After reading the resolution with care. Mr, Mar
vel said he thought it open to criticism and that
a resolution which did not take up issues over
which dwte had been m was likely to be bitter
ness would answer the purpose far better and
be eminently more Just to the record of Mr.
More emphatic than all these men was Judge
Wade, of lowa. Hi said that every proposition
in the Cleveland resolution which might give
ri»« to controversy should be "pulled out by the
r00t3." Continuing, he said:
"It the friends and. the enemies of Mr. Bryan
threaten to dispute over this question, then th»
friends of Mr. Cleveland will insist that there
shall be no party quarrels in paying to hta
