that these men "should have attain dared to hoist

which lasted nearly two minutes. -..,,

delegatesepokeln earnest strains In support of
the Wliltehouse harmony resolutions.
AMemblvmnn John J. Hennessey, who also
maintained that nothing should tie left undone
to brink In the Khepard faction, told ex-Senator
SIcCarren that If his memory was good there
were .1.000 disgruntled Democrats even In his
cwn district last year. ,,.....
" Let us offer them," Mr. Hennessy said, "this
olive branch." .....
Sir. Marvin sided with ex-Penator SIcCarren
an.l suggested that Ed SI. Shepard be allowed
"to go to the devil."
When the resolution finally came toavote It
wna swept through by such n large majority
that there was no demand for the roll call. The
Chairman appointed these on the Conference
Committee with the Shepardltes: S. S. White
house. Bernard J. York. V. C. Heecher. Hobert
Stewart, rtnil Assemblyman John J.Hcnncsey.
At this stage of tho proceedings a committee
from the Young SIcn's Democratic Club, which
had been In section during the evening, arrived,
and was assigned seals on the platform. A
resolution which had been adopted by the club
was handed up and rend. It denounced tho
selection of McCarty. Delrnar. Coffey, and Sic
CaiTcn oa Htato Committeemen, as they wero
not fit representatlveaof the reorganized liemoc
racy. Each denunciatory sentence of the reso
lution was loudly applauded.
Ex-Senatar SIcCarren got the floor for a few
moments to deiend himself and his associates,
but to small purpose. Assistant District Attor
ney Slagulrethennttacked tho method by which
Coffey waa chosen In the Kourth district, and
moved that a protest against him be forwarded
to the State Committee.
Half a dozen delegates then Jumped up, each
aroual with resolutions denouncing and repudi
ating the choice of McCarty, Dclmar, Coffey,
and SIcCarren, and for batf an hour there wa a
fight to see which resolution should prevail.
Sir. HlggtnboUinm finally succerded in having
his resolution, with some additions from other
delegates, made the prevailing one. It not only
denounced the methods by which the four State
Committeemen wi,ro clioH'ii. hut summoned
them In the name of tlie reorganized Democ
racy to resign their places f.irthnlth.
It also directed the delegates from each Con

provided that the State Committee be called

outbreak of enthusiasm when he said: "The
methods by which these men bate been placed

The political situation In the State Is discussed
by Democrats and Ilepubllcnns. The opinion
is that tho Democrats hae most to fear from
the commercial depression. The bombnnl
mfnt of Tammany by the Lexow- Com.
mlttee Is another feature. Tho Itcpuhll.
cans have practically h united party. Hut
by their sllenco nt Saratoga the ltepubllcans. as
their adversaries believe, have tacitly endorsed
the A, 1'. a., and the Democrats think that that
will prove to have tieen a very bad blunder.
The ltepubllcans have nlready taken steps to
revive the Slaynard Issue. They have collected
Senator Hill's utterances on the Slavnard mat
ter during last) ear's campaign, and this, with
an appeal to the bad business situation. Is to bo
the chief stock In trade of tho Hepubllcan cam
paigners. Speaking of the Slaynard matter. Influential
Democrats said last night that if necessary at
the proper time Inside history hitherto unpub
lished will bo brought out, possibly to the dis
comfiture of the Republican critics.
Senator Hill does not underestimate the wiles
of the enemy, and ho says very candidly that It
Is a time for nil Democrats to get together. He
points to the proposed apportionment which Is
to bo precipitated upon tho voters on election
day. This apportionment if It liecomes a law
will give tho ltepubllcans tho State for an In

The resolution adopted was offered by Thomas

" tnerra. The seventh plank In tho civic

less of birth, belief, or legitimate calling:' and
" Whirttw. The constitutional rtiilitanf Ameri

The significance of this action lies in the fact
that most of the memtieri of the Civic Union
ire specially friendly politically to William H.

from Europe with gentlemen who ore desirous
of naming a third Mate ticket. Mr. Ilrophy. the

t Ided that no person who holds a Federal office

Judge Lacombe held that no fixed salary or

Ai.iianv. Oct. 1. The closencbs of the content
between tho Harnet and Weaver factions of tho
Albany Republicans for the control of the Count
Convention to-day provoked a reort of the
Weaverites to tho law for a settlement ot a con
test over the election of delegates ln the Six
teenth ward of Albany. An application was
made before Judge Slayham ln the Supreme
Court for a writ of mandamus, to compel tho
returning officers to sign the certificate of elec
tion for the Weaver delegates, Eugcno Rur
Ilngame appeared for the Weaterltcs and
Henry C. Ncvltt argued for the Darnes
organization. County Judge Clute granted a
mandamus last week compelling Georgo SI.
Burnett, President of tho Sixteenth ward or
ganization, a Barnes man, to sign the returns of
the primary. Sir. Nevltt held before Judgo
Slayham that, as the Republican State Com
mittee had passed upon the question by recog.
nlzlng tho regularity of the Barnes organiza
tion convention. In whlchthe anti-Weaver dele
gates participated, there wasa question whether
Judge Clute had the power to take the course he
did. Judge Slav ham overruled Sir. Nevltt, and
raid that he would decide for once and for all
time that tho courts had full power. Ho or
dered that a peremptory mandamus bo Issued to
compel Burnett to sign the returns.
Afterward Justice SInyham granted Mr.
Nevltt a stay for ten days, saying that he hoped
to see the matter decided by the highest court.
Tho Barnes organization will appeal to the Gen
eral Term, and the Judge said that time would
lie clten after the expiration of the stay for the
holdlngof theCounty Convention if the VVeaver
ltes should so desire.
Had this writ been Issued before the State
Convention was held, an.l had tho State Con
vention acted In accordance therewith, the anti
Barnes delegates from Alhanv county would
hate numtiervd sixteen, instead of leatlng tlie
delegation Jl toll.atl.. The Republican Mate
Committee at their meeting lust Wednesday
held that Sir. Barnes should retain his seat.

Wasiiixiitov, O.t. 1 Senator Gorman was
In Washington to-day, looking the picture of
health and nppnrently nt pence with nil the
world. The Senator imsllivcly declined todls
i IMS politics, but he laughed with his friends
over the publication tu nn afternoon paper of n
long article announcing the dls every that Sir.
Gorman Is responsible for the sudden and tin
expected stampedeof the recent New York Con.
tentlon to Senator Hill. Tho article says that
while thn Maryland Senator was at Saratoga he
heard report of the situation of the party In
the State from all the leaders, and listened In
ctery case with earnest attention. Ho solicited
the fullest Information. He agreed to the propo
sltlon that (he emergency was of the very grav
est, and that It called for the best leadership
" Let's run over the list of jour msslbllltlc,"
he Is rciHirtcd to havu said to each and every
one of his interrogator..
Only two names seemed to Interest hlin. He
declared that cltlur Sir. Whitney or Senator
Hill would be nn Inspiring candidate, nml that
oneorthenthvr ought to he forced to take the
"Hut neither will run and Whitney Is out of
the country," wnsobjecte.1.
"Senator Hilt is nt home," Sir. Gorman sug
get.d. Then follow e.l a thorough dlctisson of the
senior New York Senntor's relation to tho ex
ltlng -Itil.-vtlon and what It demanded of hlin.
The New Yorkers, without exception, wero con
fident that Sir. Hill could not be Induced to lead
the fight. He had repeatedly declared as much,
they mild, and the; could think uf no way to
make him rbnnge uls mind.
"Draft hint," Is said lo have been Sir. Gor
man's laconic reply.
He then proce.ded lo show how It could be
" lie's n delegate to the Convention, Isn't he l"
Mr. Gorman nkcd.
" Yes," was the replv.
"'lhenput him In the chair uii.t keep him
there, and when tho time conies let the Conten
tion rise up as one man and nominate hlui. Thn
responsibility will then be put upon hlin. nnd
I've no doubt he'll meet it nod make the race."
The suggestion Illuminated the whole problem.
The New Yorkers were delighted, and iIItu.
slonof detnlls wus nloncc liegun. The Idea at
first was to have Roiirke Cockrnne make the
stuinpedlngsperch, but Sir. Gorman overruled
this with the suggestion tlmt Sir. Hill might
grow.dlstrnstfulut thu sight of a nomination
Wring Cuckoo. The details us carried out in
the Convention wero finally arranged, however,
and Hill nominated.
Senator Gorman did not deny the truth of thh
pretty story to-day. He simply laughed at It
and said that while at Saratoga he nttrt.ded
strictly to pleasure seeking ond rest.
