tht Americans will make larger demand than

Spain Is prepared to grant all Jhat America

n avana. Oct. 28 Th Joint Military Com
mission mat tht afternoon In the Palace of the
Autonomist Chambers. Marqui Hontoro. one
of th Spanish Commissioners, was ill and did
not attend the meeting. The first point dis
cussed was the date upon which the evacua
tion of the Island is to be completed. Gen.
Farrado. the President of the Spanish Com
mission, polntod out at length what he de
clared was the material impossibility of get
ting the Spanish troops out of the Island before
Feb. 1. One of the reasons he advanced for de
lay wa that the number of steamora at the
disposal of Spain for the conveyance of troop
was leu than was generally believed.
Gen. Butler, speaking for the American Com
missioners, replied that the United States
could only grant until Jan. 1 for the complete
evacuation of Cuba. The debate on the ques
tion was long, but no agreement was reached.
The question of consulting th Washington
and Madrid Governments on the subject waa
raised, but tha American Commissioners said
that they had received instructions on the
point already, and they declined to ask for fur
Another matter discussed was the property
the Spanish Array shall be allowed to carry
hack to Spain. This gave rise to another long
debate, and it was finally agreed to appoint two
officers, one Spanish, the other American, to
examine the depot and arsenal and report on
which gun are to be taken away. The Span
iards contended that the disposition of th can
non in the fort was on to be left to th de
cision of the Pari Peace Commissioners.
The Americans replied that they had received
no Instruction on this point from Washington.
Other less Important matters were discussed.
and after a session lasting an hour the meeting
ended at 1 o'clock.

A Co-operative Factory to Be 'Opened

As the result of a long conference held yes
terday afternoon In the house of Edmund
Kelly. President of the Social Reform Club, be
tween Mr. Kelly and President Bchimmuch
and Secretary Topfstatt of the Ladles' Tailors
Union, the tailors will appoint a committee

proposed co-operative factory. It was learned
yesterday that tho money will be forthcoming

tailors prefer to cull it, and the tailors, except

Club, who is actively engaged In behalf of the
tailors and guarantees that manv wealthy la
dles are ready to support them, wrot yester
day to James ithodes, who is now In Mashu
chueettH. asking him to come here to eonmilt
about the proposed factory. Mr. Rhodes has
been eonneoted with many similar factories
in England. It wus said that he will be asked
to take the place of superintendent at a good
salary, as It Is believed that it Is better to havu
n superintendent so far above the rauk rind file
that the workers will not be jealous of him.
Mr. Kelly has udvlsed the committee to select
ii place for the factory between Thirtieth and
Thirty-fourth streets, bnt not on Hfth avenue,
where the rents are too high.
Secretary Topfstatt said yesterday that he
believed the experiment of a co-operative fac

hands would be successful, and would lead to
the establishment of other factories.

Thr Hon. Benjamin B. Odell. Jr.. Chairman
of tha Republican State Committee, put in yes
terday the hardest work of the campaign, lis
wss visited from early morning until late at
night by Republicans from the up-state dis
trict, who told In detail th situation. Th
vast majority of the report were fine In sev
eral of th counties additional work will have to
be put In. Th talks yesterday were candid In
tho extreme. That I what Chairman Odell
doalrad. Ho didn't want any rainbow and
wouldn't bar any.' In several of the upper
north river counties greater work Is lo be
done. Chairman Odell and his visitors from
th up-State districts do not believe that th
Republicans In any part of the Stat should be
afflicted with overconfldence. but th vast
majority who gave testimony yesterday said
that without the slightest doubt Theodore
Roosevelt would carry th State of New
York hy 35.000 plurality. All th visiting
Republican laughed at the statement of Henry
G. Burleigh that Roosevelt would oome down
to the Westchester line with only 05.000 plu
rality. This plurality, it was pointed out.
would be 17.000 behind that of Judge
Wallac last year, when there wa no Btato
campaign. It was exceedingly difficult last
year. It was added, to get out the Republi
can vote in the up-State districts. This year
the situation Is far different, and the estimate
was mode, after yesterday's conferences, that
Roosevelt will come down to the Westchester
line with certainly 120.000 plurality. This was
a modest estimate In the opinion of some.
The Republican visitors said that the Democrats-were
playing ell sorts of tricks, but that
the Republican campaigners were fully allvo
to them. The following despatches will ex
plain one of the tricks of Richard Croker'
representatives In the up-State districts:
Plattsbuiwj. N. Y.. Oct. 28. 1808.
JTon. B. B. Odtli, Jr., Chairman. Fifth Avrnut Hold,

Nete York City:
Democrats colonized fifty-two illegal voters in
Fort Edward. Judge Ltllle has granted orders
striking them off registry roll. . Am examining
Whitehall rolls now. Isaac V. Baxjm. Jr..
Chairman Republican County Committee.
Chairman Odell, on receipt of these de
spatches, telegraphed to all of the leading Re
publican in the count los to look out for colo
nization, to look over the registration lists
and to verify them In detail. This work will
be carried on with vigor from no until elec
tion day. Chairman Odell received word also
that th Democrats were attempting
to bribe th poll worker of th Re
publican party In the up-State dis
trict. The Steuben county Republicans
sent word that they are alive to what Is going
on and have placarded th county with posters
offering rewards forth arrest and conviction
of anybody who attempt to bribe voters
either to remain away from th poll on elec
tion day or to vote for any given candidate.
Before election day. it was said, tbase posters
will be up in all of th counties. The Republi
can campaign manager are alive to the effort
of the Democrats to debauch the Stat.
One of th most important Republican In
th gathering at the Fifth Avenue Hotel yes
terday said of the programme of the Democrats :
" They ar to attempt to buy InVach eleotlon
district of the Btate Ova Republicans to remain
away from th poll on election day and
five to vote for Van Wyck. This would make
a difference of fifteen votes in the result
In every election district. Inasmuoh as there
aro 4.788 election districts In the State the plan
of the Democrats I to capture 71,520 vote."
Th election districts In each county of tho
State are as follows:
Albany 120iOnondaga. 143

The un-State Republicans said that in the
region above tha Westchester line there is
just as much interest In Ijicliard Croker' at
tempt to run the Supreme Court bench of New
York city as there is in this county. As one of
them put It :
"If Mr. Croker will refuse to renominate a
Judge who declined to take order from him.
will not Mr. Croker's Governor be expected to
be, of course, a servile tool, but with this ad
ditional power of appointing Mr. Croker's
Judges to the Appellate Division throughout
the entire State ?"
It whs the testimony of all that the judiciary
question had developed Into a State Issue of
serious importance. Mr. Van Wyck ha re
mained silent about Richard Croker' attack
upon the judiciary and the Bar Association of
New Y'ork oity ; as silent as he Is on the money
question. Th! silence has been severely orltl
clsed all over th State. ,
Th Republicans closed the day's work by
saying that every oltlzen in every pan of the
State, no matter how remote, ahould keep this
in mind on eleotlon day:
If you wan to tarn the late over to
Richard Croker, vole for Van Wyck.

on exhibition nt;the Wigwam yesterday.
"The Law Committee of Tammany Hall,"
was his announcement to the reporters, "met
to consider two Important questions In con
nection with the efforts that are being made
to interfere with the polling of the Democratic
vote of this city. The first subject considered
was the report that a large number of war
rants had been secured by the McCullagh dep
uties for the purpose of terrorizing and In
timidating voters. No efforts seem to have
been made to serve or execute them, and their
purpose Is. therefore, apparent. They were
not secured in good faith or uuder anr belief
that violations of the law were intended."
Tammany's Law Committee goes on to say
tliut it is 'an Offence, under section S.nlOof tho

legal registration until election day.

Th Hon. Edward Murphy. Jr.. returned to
Troy yesterday, and they didn't know at tbn
Hoffman Hous last night whether he would
return to NewYorkeityortiot. itichard Croker
ha called to hi side In the management of Van
Wynk'a campaign the Hon. Arthur P. Gorman
of Maryland. Mr. Croker and Mr. Gorman nr
warm personal frlonds, and Mr. Gorman isnwsre
of the Importance of this election on Richard
Croker's political fortune and future. In the
estimation of Democrats of official character
who nro in close communion with thoso nt the
Hoffman House, Mr. Croker has botched Van
Wyck' campaign from the very stnrt. Among
th first botches was at Syracuse, when
Croker's Stato-tJonventlon Ignored entirely the
Chicago platform of lSUtl. This waa so con
trary to tne attitiiun oi otner omies mat it.
called forth sharp criticism from tho rank and
flleof the Democratic party. It was a desperate
and futile effort to hide the national principles
of the Democratic party, and no successful
political movement ever started out with such
Croker's next great mistake, his Democratic
critics say. was his attack upon th judiciary
and th Bar Association. The next was his re
fusal to allow his candidate for Governor.
Augustus Van Wyck. to say a word on
tha money Issue. And his refusal to allow
the Democratic candidates for Congress to say
a word on th same question. Democrats from
the up-State districts say that th voter of the
Btate who have followed the Democratic party,
ven in 1806, believe such a policy to be de
tectable. It fool nobody, they said, except
those who Invented It.
According to ex-Senator Hill's frisnds Crok
er's first botch was his Insisting at Syracuse on
the nomination of Augustus Van Wyok of New
York city, brother of Mayor Robert A. Van
Wyok of New York olty. The Demoeretl
voters in op-State district do not tak kindly
to so close a communion of Interests, political
and other, between Richard Croker's candidate
for Governor and bis Mayor.
Richard Croker's final mistake waa th
bringing to hi aid the Hon. Arthur P. Gor
man of Maryland. Former Senator David
B. Hill and Mr. Gorman have not been
friends for several years. Mr. 'Hill attacked
Mr. Gorman, In the United Btate Ben
ate, and that attack led to a breach,
for a time, of th personal relations
between Mr. Hill and Mr. Murphy. Mr. Croker
Is thoroughly aware of the relations between
Mr. Hill and Mr. Gorman, it was added, but he
doesn't care anything about tbem. All of Hill's
friends at Democratic Btate headquarter have
been thrust aside until very few of them visit
Richard Croker's absolutism in his manage
ment of Tammany Ball has also aroused strong
antagonisms. This was pointed out In The
Sum on Thursday. On of Mr. Hill's clos
est friends at State headquarter In the
Hoffman House does not hesitate to say.
over and over again, that a second
Democratic organization Is to be started
in New York city. Mr. Hill ha many
friend In Tammany Hall, and they do not
propose to soe him treated as it is declared that
he has been treated. Furthermore, Democrats
who have been Very powerful In national af
fairs, aud whom Mr. Croker. it Is alleged, has
affronted, do not propose to out up with him
Finally, his Democratic critics said. Richard
Croker's effort to become a Democratic State
leader has been a sorry spectacle from the
tart. They said: "Croker's campaign ha
been a campaign of mistakes! mistakes I mis
takes:" Notwithstanding all this, it msy be said.
Democratic leaders who object to Richard Cro
ker's management of this campaign Intend to
remain In the campaign, and when it is all
over and Van Wyck i beaten there Is to be a
new shuffle. ,

The crowd ugreed with Mr. Beach and gavaj
him three cheers before Stephen V. White was

for trouble. There was no question about his
earnestness in th" fight and he made a speech
like un old campaigner. He started right out
without iinv preliminary business. He said:
"I am here to-night to discuss the national
