Senator Hill win t the liclm yesterday. He
"began early lu the morning hl work f"r ll,c
Democratic StMo ticket nominated t Sarntign,
' nndhodldmrt. flnlh Ills labors until cl tn
midnight. Some of tho work was done at the
Hotel Ncv.mandle. nnd after that there wire
pilgrimages down town nnd elsewhere. Henna
not f c from the Manhattan Club In the cv ru
ing, In the afternoon lie was not far from ex
Bfrretar) Falrchlld's ofTlce In Wall strict.
The situation Is developing new nml Interest
ing features. In the prcllmlnnr) discussions of
tho Democrats at Snrntogn Senator Hill urged
tho ail liability of giving wimo recognition in
tho Convention to tho Falrrhllders and the
flhepnrdltes. Hc.dld this with tho echoes of the
Hemibllcan victories In Maine nnd Virmont
ringing In his tnrs. Ho believed that tho ticket
to be nominated should receive the vote of every
kind of a Democrat In tho State. If tho Kcpub
llonn toirent was to bo checked. Chairman Ed
ward Murphy. Jr.. Ltcut.-Oov. Shechnn,
Mayor (Illroyi John McCarty. represent
ing Hugh McLaughlin; Major James W.
t HlncJUcy. tho new Chairman of the State
Committee: Pollco Commissioner James J.
Martin, and others protested nnd declared that
tho Falrchllders and the Shepardltcs should
hnva followed Chairman Murphy's adlce. that
they attend the primaries and get Into the
regular Democratic organizations by the front
door. They further declared that If the New
York and Kings county kickers were lit In It
would give them tho right to head their local
municipal tickets with the Democratic Mate
ticket and thus reflect upon the regularity of
the other organizations.
Senator Hill nevertheless protested that It was
a time to get together. This was before he
I dreamed that he was to be the candldato for
I Governor. It was when he and those who sur
rounded him believed that the ticket w as to bo
hesicd by John Uoyd Thacher of Albany.
After Senator Hill was nominated In that up
roarious Convention ho again declared to the
I gentlemen mentioned that something should
have been done toward recognizing the Falr
htldcrs and the bhennrdltrs. (e Insisted that
every vote was needed. From that hour he has
endeavored to bring ulsiut some sort of har
mony. He returned to Albany and directed that
the HIU faction In Albany lounty should en
dorse tho He nick faitlon's nominations for
local offices. This was a bitter pill for the HIU
lieutenants, but by direction of their chieftain
they followed his commands and yesterday they
endorsed the ilerrlck nomination.
While this waa being done .senator Hill w.il
bere In New York with other Ideas In the way of
harmony. The Falrchllders and Shepardltn
have Inslsteil since the Contention that they
would nominate a State tliket with which to
liead their local tickets In New York and King.
It has been apparent fur a number of days that
this has been a bluff, designed to lnduic Senator
HIU and hit nsscx latrs on the Democratic ticket
o accede to their wishes and allow the regular
Democrattu State ticket nominated at Saratoga
to be put at the head of their municipal tickets
on the ballots. The Falrchllders hae nut taken
liny steps worthy of note to prepare a Stato
tlckot of their own. nnd last night the Shcpard
ltes adjourned without naming the state ticket
they had boasted would be put In Die field last
night by them. Under the election law, Sena
tor HIU and his associates on the tli kit have the
Prlrilego of allowing, tho Falrchlldert and the
vJiuetairUIlea to head their municipal tickets
with the Democratic Stato ticket or of forbid
Senator HIU and Mr. Tliacher met representa
tives of the Kalrchlld rontlngenl down town
yesterday; ami discussed the situation. It is
stated that the Falrchlld people said that thev
would not run a State ticket If Sentamr Hill and
Jilt assoc ntcs would allow them to head their
municipal ticket with the Democratic Stato
ticket. There was a lung and Interesting urn
Venation over this matter, but Senotor Hill did
riot come to n conclusion. In the atteruuon
the Senator and his friends had talks with
men who were mid to represent the sheD
ardltes. and who. It Is declared, practically
ubmlttctl a similar proposition. In" case
also imdctjidnn was reached. Iho Senator will
confer with Mr. IKkw.Kxl and therepre.enta

Jacksonville, Fla Oct. S. -The State and
county election ln this city to-day resulted in a
tangle which will probably require the courts to
straighten. The fight was between two factions
of the Democratic party, and bids fair to he a
close one. Early this morning. Inconsequence
of a threat of fraud by the faction holding the
Inspector appointing power, three deputy
sheriffs walked Into each polling place and elg.
nltled their intention of remaining.
The inspectors all over the city thereupon
closed the voting booths, awaiting Instructions
from the leaders. A compromise waa effected
In several of the outlying wards In a short time
and voting waa resumed, but In the Fourth,
Fifth, and Sixth, three of the inoit populous
wards In the city, not a vote was cast, owing to
a failure tn agree upon any arrnngement. In
consequence of this tangle, out of a qualifiul
vote of fi.000 In Duval county mil) a small pro.
portion was lulled.
Gov. Mitchell yesterday ordered AdJU-Gen,
Houston tn this city, and all day the state
troopi wero held under arms at their quarters,
but were not needed. The main laaiiea of the
factional fight were the oil Inability of i renting
a railroad commttxlon and the alleged attempt
of railroad corporations to capture the next
Legislature. Nowhere has the bltternma grown
to such Intensity aa tn Duval county. Through,
out the State Llddon, for Supreme Court Jus.
lice, has met with practically no opposition.

James Hoot, the St. Paul and Duluth engineer
who won fame during the tlmoof the forest fires
In tho Northwest ln September. Is In this city.
Ho Is visiting his brother-in-law. Engineer Wil
liam Hlggtns of the New York Central Itallroad.
nt SKI East 140th street. It will bo remembered
thnt at Hinckley. Minn., he sacd .100 lives,
backing his trnln through six miles of Are. Ho
is n man of medium height, rather spare, with
a heavy sandy moustache and n small tuft of
hair on his chin. He eyes arc mild nnd blue
gray ln color. Ho Is accompanied by his wife
and his son Edward, ft youth of '.'0, who will
enter the College of Physicians nnd Surgeons
this fall. Mr. Hoot has been a railroad man for
thirty-seven years, and fnrthop.it quarter of
a century ho baa been an engineer on the St.
Pnnl and Duluth line.
Speaking of that rtify when he saed the peo-
Elc of Hinckley, ho said yesterday that his train
ad parsed through forty miles of smoke so
dense that the lamps In the cars had to be lit.
Then came a spve In w bleb the air waa clear.
"When within three miles of Hinckley," con
tinued Mr. Hoot, "I sawn great crowd of peo
ple running toward our train and waving their
orms wildly. Among them were many women,
nnd homo had babies In their arms. I stopped
tbe train Just Ix'foro wo reached Hinckley.
Those poor creatures gathered about us and
asked us to au them.
" While I stood talking- there was a sudden
mar as of a mighty wlnrt. Tlie air was filled
with ams, J an Insinul the whole train -jaa
on fire. Three women stood near me, n mother
and her two daughters. They wore ennght up
br the cyclone and curried off in the twinkling
of nn eye. I nover saw them again. All tho
peotile htlMled aboard the train and wo started
intuit k up to Skunk Lake, the nearest water.
Just as I opened the throttle tho glass in tho
cab window was blown ln. Olio of the flying
fragments struck me nn the cheek ami laid tho
whole side of my face open. I didn't know that
I waa cut at the time.
" While going up the grnde out of Hinckley
three men run after us and got on the pilot of
the engine. In les than five minutes two of
them rolled off and w ere burned up. Just be.
foro we reached the top of the grnde I became
unconscious. When I came to wo weru running
very slowly, ln falling 1 must have strut k the
throttle and shut the steam off. I oeneit her
out again, and wu snou reached Skunk I-uko,
where we got Into the water and were saved."
Tho ordmt through which Engineer Hoot
Fiassed nearly finished him, and he waa In bed
or three weeks. He still feels shaken, although
ho saya ho thinks he Is tit to go to work again.

Wliaess Who Will Never Tesliry.
Dr. Charles It, Pnrkhurst nt a meeting of the
City Vlgllniiie Leiigun In the Amity building.
.'I1!J West Fifty-fourth street, Inst evening, com
plained of tho lack of harmony on tho part of
those who seek to purify city politic. His
speech was not hopeful. About 400 persons
were In tho hall, tho majority of whom wero
women. Dr. V. L. Thompson presided. Short
speeches wero made by tho Hcv. A. E. Meyers,
L. W. William", and other.
Dr. Pnrkhurst opened his address by relating
nn Incident which occurred on the east sldo ono
evening last week. He said;
"I havo always a soft side for children, and
am touched whenever n child speaks to me on a
subject In which I am Interested. I wns coming
up what Is locally known ns The Hook, in Klv
Ington street. It was after 10 o'clock. I had
been lo a meeting of tho City Vigilance League.
An Intimation hnd gnno nhrnad, ns ltalwns
does, that I was on my way up the street. Stand
lug In nn nriawny, and alone, was a llttlo fel
low, w ho, ns I passed, peeped out and said. In a
henrty, cheery way, 'Good night. Dr. Park
hurst.' It wna done n kindly nnd so sincerely
that I was touched.
"The Incident argues wed for the future, as it
shows that the llttlo ones are Interested. Wo
nroworkingnnt for the Immediate ftitutr. The
work of tho City Vigilance League looks fur
ther ahead than Nov. il. This league is designed
for the schooling of younger memWrs of tho
community. 5Ioro hinges on this week than we
can easily calculate. Much will bo decided In
the next few days. Important points are press
ing, nnd the future does not look very bright
to-ntght. Jlen aro becoming more and moro
conscious of party affiliation. They mako the
Ixilnt emphatic, and say tho candidate must lie
a Republican or n Democrat, according to their
way of thinking.
" We hxik back to a glorious ancestry", but not
all of us realize that, though wo bear the lmino
of freemen, we aro not freemen not onlr tho
w orkhigmcn, hut men tn the higher social strata.
"There Is a man supported at the public ex
pense In a prison In nnothcr State "
At this point some of the audience laughed.
Dr. Pnrkhurst rebuked them, Maying: " I hone
you will take this kindly, but this Is not to he
laughed at. When a former speaker spoke of
six saloons In n block less than six hundred feet
long, t was pained by your laughter. Hnd yon
Mil and felt the fait it would have drawn tears
to your eyes Instead of smiles. Hail vou rend
tho harrowing letters which I havo received
nnd been snaked In It for two and a half years,
you could not smile.
" I have often Iwen sick -sick sick at heart
and nlmoet hopeless, when I learned of the
social life which has come In contact with the
evil Iti the city; but If we need moro of this
thing and are not educated out of It, then let us
hao two and a. half years more of it. Any
Moyoror ex-Mayor who says there Is enough,
then we'll need more grace.
The audience apparently thought the speaker
wns punning, for they laughed.
Hut ntmut the man In Jail. I have evidence,
a knowledge of crime put ln black nnd white,
hlch. if produced, would make a sensation
even moro phenomenal than anything yet
brought out. We sent a man to bring him to
New- York" to" teotlfy. but be answered that tne
very thought of coming to New York made him
tremble. Ho said his life was not safe if he
came. Hewould not dare think of such a thing.
" We have a case of this. I'm not sure, but l
think we haven case In the )nung hnif-breoil,
Apimi. It may be attempted suicide, but there
Is no proof thnt It Is. I ha o no reamn to doubt
joung Appo's story. The strongest wltnevi
ngaliist him was Policeman Coleman, who was
before the committed to-day. It is far better
than going tn a theatre to see Goft gimlet a
thing nut of a witness."
Dr. Pnrkhurst rend the testimony of Colcmnn
before tbe Lexow Committee, Interpolating re.
mnrkaofhls own. one of which was: I heanl
that Police Justlco Voorhls said tills evening
that when lie was Police Commissioner ho would
never accept tho oath of n policeman."
He concluded by reading the remark of Sen
ator Hnullej. criticizing the Coniiiiinsloneri:
"That." Dr. Parkhurst said," saddles the ob
ligation where It belongs. No man at tha head
ofnlHiudof loinimct, concentrated rawals can
lmlrMtthau compactly and concentrated iy the
biggest rascal of tho lot.
'The Police Court Is worse than the depart
ment, but Its tlmo will tome Inter. I long for
tho time when tho Pollco Department work Is
llnUlud and we can give time to tlio Pollco
Court. The entire trend of thought of the com
mittee Is what kind of legislation can be made
along the lino of improvement tn the Pollco
Department. When n department Is thoroughly
corrupt, what Is tho only thing that rnn be
doner Ifamanlsln tho same condition, what
cun he do but die.
"1 recognize what the Police Commissioners
havo done during the past summer; but don't
allow the wool to bo milled over vnur eve.
Judge Cowing knew eara ago ns truly ns he
does ntiw, but not aa thoroughly, perhaps, of this
corruption, et ho has done nothing until tho
present Grand Jury, I understand the men In
the District Attorney's otllce are actively en.
gaged In carr) lng nut Instructions, nnd will
bring delinquents to account, but I have placed
with the District Attorney- not Fellows, but
Nicoll, I have had nothing to do with Fellows
j et-to take a stand against Devery, but with
all my pleadings and complaints I wns not ablo
to do an thing. At last we cried to Alluiny.
Now the District Attorney steps In. Wbydont
they let the committee alone until they finish
" Last summer the Police Commissioners
caused much embarrassment. Witnesses have
been driven off. It is hard tn keen a bold on
them. Every day we receive word that certain
witnesses aro going tn Europe. Every action of
the rourt embarrasses us. At this Juncture no
system of lnvoatlgatton Ought to Interfere with
Dr. Parkhurst read a letter which ho said
was written bv a law er of standing lu the com.
inuulty, wealthy and well known, who prom,
ised, and made the promlxe binding on his heirs,
to pay f 1.00(1 to nny)oung lawver who should
suctersfull Impeach a Pi. lice Justice. Nouamo
was mentioned by Dr. I'arkhurst, whnsald:
"This Is a chsuio for armng man. Ilngan
has lust returned from his vacation and Divver
we have with us always. I know perfectly
well whst 1 um talking almut. Poor women are
blid of money by villous Police Justices."
Ilr Pnrkhurst concluded his remarks with an
appeal to young men to act as wutchers nt the
isjIIs on election day. A meeting would lie held
in the I'niled Charities building he sulci, where
thtfmen would bo Instructed ln their duties.
He wanted them thoroughly posted, so that "no
policeman, drunk or Bober, could depose them."
The next meeting of the league will I held
to-morrow evening in the Adams Memorial
Church, 207 East Thirtieth street.

llfltl.INOTON, la., Oct. ". A guaranteed
burglar-proof safe In the ftrv-nroof vaults of the
State Hank of Medlspolis, this county, was
blown almost to atoms yesterday morning by a
tremendous charge of nllro-glycerlne,- The
cracksmen forced the vault locks without dlftl
cully. The safe contained 3,000 In gold coin,
$H00 In paper currency, $1,000 In silver coin,
ami S',U00 In school district bonds payable to
liearer. The paper money was torn Into little
bits and tbe coin was battered and bent and
scattered to the four winds. Nineteen of the
bonds have been recovered Intact, the rest being
destroyed or stolen. Fifteen hundred dollars ln
battered coin was recovered. It Is presumed
the burglars got the rest.
The Interior of the vault looks as though It had
passed through a bombardment. A ton of scrap
metal lies upon the floor and la imbedded to the
wall and celling. Private boxes were riddled by
II) log pieces of inttal and Si .11. 000 worth of

estimates Its loss at J4.000. At a meeting of Iho
directors It waa voted to make this good out of

Three hours after tho dilrViverr of the rob

The robbers made their escape on a stolen hand

north of Hurllngton. The robbed bank Is char

When the executors made their accounting
they found thnt Mr. Stevens's affairs wero very
much Involved, and that tha total amount of
cash available fell short of the $30,000 Indi

They found, however, that with the maturity of

be obtained. ThercuiMin Ihvhii a hattlu nn tho

ported, and that only one such dismissal was gj
fur nssault on a civilian, tho other three being ju
for assault on policemen. We will show ou 32 I
that the members of tlio pollco forco aro prnctl- jj I
cully exempt from and above tha nwratlon of jjj'
tho law of tlie land mado for tho punishment of '
crime. Police oillccra commit misdemeanors t
nnd crimes up to the grndo of felonies for which
they go unpunished, although thu snmu offences
committed by civilians send thosu civilians 1
to prison. The law stops short at the police f ,
force. For u felouy alia pollccn in experts Is a -jt
