nriltcno niimlicr of letters to Leader John C.
elitchnn nd to Chairman Elliot Danforth of tho
'jnoirntle Statu Committee urging tho roafrlr
nation in the municipal campaign of tho na
tional platforui adopted nt Chicago. Senator
Jones Is expected to arrive In New York city
before long and doubtless ho will talk with
Bhcchan and Dnnforth and ur:o that no step
backward from llrjnnlsm be taken.
Senator Jones has Informed his f rlonds In Now

tho conference of Bold Democrats nt tho
Reform I'lub after the Cleveland dinner was
merely tho first step on tho part of Demo
jratsw bo descried their party In tho Presiden
tial campaign last fall to capture tho national
organization In 1000. Senator Jones considers
thco Democrats trn'.lors to their party. Ho Is
for taking every Btep posslblo to prevent thorn
from capturing tho national organization four
years hence, and he concludes that Tammany and
theN'ow YorkStntoorganljntton should rcnOIrm
their support of tho national platform, and thus
prevent tho gold Democrats from making tho
slightest headway. Ho points out In his lottors
to friends In Now York city that to ovoid tho
bsues of 1800 In tho coming municipal cam
paign would bo a treat mistake, for tho reason
that tho election of a Major of Greater New
York Ij to hav o a far-reaching Influence all over
tto United States.
Leader Shcchan Is in a quandary as to what
itcps to take. In his preliminary conduct of tho
campaign ho bos declared that tho battle Is to
bo fought on tho cry " Now York for Now York

Tammnny w 111 fight for n Mayor of Greater Now
York on tho prlnclplo of homo rule. Senator
Jones is orv much concerned over Mr. Shechon'a
attitude, although ho bellovcs that Mr. Sheohan
acted in good faith In tho campulgn last fall.
Richard Croker, it Is learned, docs not npprovo
of conducting the battlo for a Mayor of Greater
N'ew York on anything but municipal lines nnd
will say so when hu returns to New York. Sen
ator Jones Is nwaro of Mr. Croker s attitude,
and he is dioply grieved. Ho has not given up
how. how over, of convincing Mr. Croker of the
error of his ways. Hut between Jones and
Croker, Shcchan, it is suspected, goes with

long-dlstonco telephone and personally dlrocted
tho fight against Senntors Fllnn and Magoo, tho
1'lttaburg bosses, who havo held the fort in Al

Quay won u temporary Ictory to-day through
an nlllanco with tho Democrats, who were mar
shalled by John M. Gorman, Chairman of tho
Democratic Stato Committee.
A bill was prepared by I.tout.-Gov. Walter

placo Pittsburg In tho first group with Philadel

authorizes tho Governor lo appoint tho Mayor
and other city officials within ten dajn after it

that tho member In chargo hnd It placed on tho

was pressed by tho roformcrs In Pittsburg to
make another effort, nnd ho niado some sort of
nlllanco with Chairman Garman, who lined up
tho Democrats to-day for tho bill. Thoy had
previously been lined upon tho other side. They
gave Quay enough votes to pass tho bill on sec

final stage. Inasmuch as many supported It to

During the discussion to-day Mr. McElhany of

has. mt. TUlbrook declared that tho masses or tho

delphia protested against the ptssageof tho bill.
Ho said Philadelphia did nol want to be placed
in tho same class as Pittsburg, and argued that
tho future under such conditions would mean
constant friction in legislation. What Phila
delphia would want Pittsburg would not want.
Mr. Crothers of Philadelphia made a red-hot

Gav. Black Listens to tbe Civil Service Be
rortnera Who Armed Against It.
Albany, May 0. Gov. Black to-day listened
for an hour and a half to the civil servlco re
formers, who appeared In opposition to Senator
Lexow's "Starchlcss Civil Servlco bill." This
measure is the creature of Gov. Black's "ad
vanced " ideas on the question of civil service.
Ho spent more timo in tho preparation of this
bill than on any measure Introduced to put into
off cct tho many recommendations made in his
annual message. Thero were fifty prominent
civil service reformers present from New York
and Brooklyn and other municipalities when
Gov. Black opened the hoarlng at noon.
The opposition was led by Carl Schurz and
Secretary McAneny of tho Civil Service Iteform
Association. Mr. Schurz mode the principal
argument against the bill. He declared that It
was a violation of the spirit of tho civil servlco
provision of the State Constitution, and that It
meant a return to the old spoils system through
the tearing down of the present admirable Stnto
civil service system. The bill purported torecog
nizo the advisability of a State civil sorviuo
scheme, yet It flagrantly vlolnted this principle
of civil government In every detail.
Civil Service Commissioners William J. Schlcf
fclln and Charles W. Watson of New Y'ork city
nnd Civ 11 Scrv lco Commlssloni r Somers and
William G. Low and Alfred T. White of Brook
Ivn, Dorman B. Eaton. J. T. Owens, and Pres
ident Daniel Harris of tho Federation of Labor
also opposed tho measure. Mrs. C. R. Lowell,
representing tho women Interested, spoko briefly
No one spoko In favorof tho measure, as It was
thought undesirable to create any friction by
having Senator Lexow defend tho measure.
Gov. Black asked not one question while tho
provisions of the bill were being discussed. He
preserved his usual discreet silence.

Purchase r Lands and Islands.
ALBAxr, May a This State to-day took tho
first steps toward the completion of tbe plan to
establish a Stato reservation on the St. Law
rence IUvcr on tho New York side. Gov. Black
recently approved a bill appropriating $30,000
to purchaso points of land along tho St. Law
rence shore and islands in the river, and for the
erection of necessary buildings and wharves to
accommodato fishermen and tourlstB. Tbe Stato
Fisheries, Game, and Forest Commission has
chargo of the establishment of tho park, and
to-day authorized tho advertising for proposals
for the purchase of lands and Islands In the St.
Lawrence. It Is not expected that any Islands
can be secured, as they are hold at high figures.
It is hoped, however, that the Statu will bo ablo
to acquire many available points jutting out
into the river. . .
To tbe Anglers Association of tho Thousand
Islands Is duo tho credit of tbe establishment of
a State reservation on tho St. Lawrence. Tho
Canadian Government Is acting In unison with
this State, with tbo expressed ultimate object of
forming a grand International park on the St.
Lawrence. Canada has already set apart twen-tj-two
Islands In tho river for public purposes
and agreed to make as largo an appropriation as
New York State toward the establishment of an
International pork. This question was flrst
agitated through the efforts which were suc
cessful In having Canada allow our Bummer vis
itors In the St. Iwwrence to fish over the line In
Canadian waters without molestation and with
out pas lng the $3 feo formerly exacted of New
York Stato fishermen.

perts at protesting, having learned It under
Johnny Mllholland. Last night their protests
were directed against tho bosses of tho Citizens'
Union Instead of against "Boss" Piatt.
Tho mooting was secret, Ex-Alderman Mo
Murray opened tho ball by stating that ho had
aeon In tho now spapcrs a statement that, under
tho plan of organization of tho Union, tho Exoo
utlvo Commltteo had full power to nominate
candidates nnd conduct tho campaign, nnd that
tho commltteo Is In favor of proceeding speedily

Robert C. Breckinridge wanted tho question

Prof. Butler answered In a wav which was
not considered satisfactory by Mr. Breckinridge,
and John B. Pine, Chairman of the Enrollment

for to answer tho question. Mr, Pino said that
ha must answer Mr. Brocklnrldgo's question In

any such arrangement. If that is tho plan I
have no placo in this organization. I do not

"How do you select candidates in the Repub

young man who evidently asked for Informa

representative conventions. If I nm fortunate
enough to bo chosen a dciegato," replied Mr.
" That Is the way the candidates of this Union
should bo chosen. Tho people should have a

This outburst surprised Mr. Pine, who said
that he supposed ev ery citizen knew when ho
signed the enrollment blank that he delegated
his authority to participate In the nominating of
candidates to the reputable gentlemen who
composed tho Governing Committees of tho

Another preliminary skirmish In the contest
of tho will of "Sir" nichard Tighc, tho Union
squaro millionaire, wns oil beforo Surrogato Fitz
gerald jestcrday. By the will most of the
$1,500,000 estate was left to rolatlvcs of tho
testator's wife, who hnd died childless. About
fifteen alleged kin beyond sea, appeared in con
test of tho will and their status was not dis
puted. Then Lawyer John M. Gardner tried to
Interveno with twenty-four other alleged kin,
mostly from this Bide, but the proponents of tho
will nnd tho kin already admitted objected, so a
motion had been mndo to require causo to bo
shown whj- tho twenty-four should not
get In. Lawyer Gardner finally decided to
withdraw all tho names except that of James
S. Tlghe, becauso bo did not want tho Surro
gate's proceeding to bar him In any way with
regard to tho rights of his other clients, which
ho intends to try to enforco In tho Supremo
Court. Tho Surrognto tried to get counsel to
stlpulnto that James S. TIgho should be allowed
to enter tho contest prov Islonally, having tho
' question of his status adjourned until after tho
contest of tho will. Counsel could not agree to
tbls, bo jestcrday was fixed for a determination
of the status of James S. TIgbe.
It Is alleged on behalf of James S. TIgho that
Richard Tlghe, tho testator, had a halfbrothor,
also named Richard, and that James S. Tlghu Is
his son. Both ltlt hards aro alleged to bo sons of
Mnjor Robert Tlgho.
John I.. Cadualladrr, In behalf of benefi
ciaries, nnd Edward II. Mooron and Arthur A.
Mitchell, both representing alleged heirs, all in
sisted that Lawjer Gardner disclose tho name of
tho alleged wife of Major Robert Tlgho. father
of the decedent, from whom James S. Tlgho Is
alleged to have sprung.
Luvvjer Mitchell said yesterday that he had
affidavits to show that tho mother of James's
father, Richard, was ono Mary Kelly, u servant
In the family of Major Titrhc. Thero Is no record
tbat the Major married Mnry Kelly.
No evidence wns presented jestcrday of James
S. Tighc's descent, nnd the Surrogate said that
ho would deny tho motion to allow James to In
tervene, but would permit Mr. Gardner to re
new tbo motion it ho should subsequently get
evldenco to show the kinship of his client.
The decision brushes away all present barriers
to the hearing of tbe w ill contest.

Bostos, May 0. Oov. Woloott to-day asked
tho Executive Council to remove (Icn. Augustus
P. Martin from tho Police Board, but thlfl tho
council refused to do by a vote of bIx to three.
Tho removal of Gen. Martin, who Is tho Chair
man of tho board, was asked for upon tho testi
mony given by himself nt tho hearing of tho
charges against him. Of tho conduct of Gen.
Martin's Bona In their various business enter
prises tho Governor has Ilttlotosay, but he re
marks that a father who cannot restrain his sons
Is unfitted fur tho post which Is now occupied by
It Is probable, however, that Gen. Martin will
resign, as tho vote of tho council and the action
of the Governor is In tbe naturo of a censure.
Gov. Wolcott has tho power to removo Gen.
Martin from tho Chairmanship without concur
rent action by tbo council, and should he do this
tho General would probably leavo tho board.
He refuses to be interviewed on tbo subject.
Tho charges against Oon. Martin were pre
ferred by Col. Roger Scnnncll and others, and,
in substance, wero that Gen, Martin was en
gaged In sovcral business enterprises contrary
to the law regarding tbo Commissioners. Tho
Governor Intimates that the sons of tho Gen
eral have trafficked on tho ofllce of thotr father.
Ho criticises severely tho action of Gen. Martin
In accepting stock in a gold mining company for
the 1150 of his name. He also condemns thn lien

Gen. Martin vvaH appointed by Gov. Grcon

the Police Board. From tho very beginning of
his administration, he has devoted much time
and energy to tho eradication of tbe boo il evil
of tho i Ity. Tho General's friends, however, ad
mit that his efforts in this direct! n have not
been successful. It Is true that ht has driven
it from the old south end "Tenderloin" to a
great extent, but that means that It has

of tho charges against Gen. Martin it was un

Numerous complaints hnv c recently been made
thnt the clcctrio lights along the Hudson County

tho road cannot bo used by w hcclmen or pleasure

thnt perhaps tbo plant, which is owned by tho
county, wns tlcfectlv e, but a thorough examina

George M. Benson, after a careful investigation,
has como to tho conclusion that tho trouble Is
tho result ot malicious mischief. Tho trouble
began about bIx weeks ago. At irregular inter
