which was lild last night lt n. O. P.

the open conference of tho afternoon.

Staters ami city Republicans (locked '
round Mr. Whitman, grabbed at hlsl

United States Senator lllllm Root dropped
In lat In the evening. William llarnes,

Former Se rctary of War Henry L. Stlm

nothing formal about this phase of the
I'orir Wnolil-he siicnUrm There,
Tho formal pait was centred In a big
room on the nintli lloor. where tho fifty
Assembl) men-elect got together for the
announced purpose of coiwdtlci Ins what
sort of ninu should bo elected Speaker,
The. four candidate for the honor were
present, Harold J. Hmman of Albany,
who has Harnes s support; Clinton T. Hor
ton of Huifalo, who Is strongly faored
by the Irogrcsle element, and Thail
deus C Sweet of (inwego and Alexander
MncDonalil of Kranklln Tho antl-Harnes
men came prepared to put In their bett
licks. They had a programme already
drawn up. They meant to alam Barnes
and Infersntlally Hlnman and to bring
about a dicker with the ProBrowlve Aa-eembbinen-elect.
Tho cauous started off aa aweetly as
a chorus of canaries In tho morning.
Almeth W. Hoff of Brooklyn volunteered
to bring about ' the election of a chair
man. Somebody glanced at the f)'P
written paper that Ogden L. Mills or
somebody else had prepared for the un
doing of the Hames men and proposed
Francis It. Stoddard of Manhattan. There
was no objection to thnt or to tho selec
tion for secretary of another Progressive
and antl-Harnes man. Samuel A. Jones
of Chenango. With the machinery of
the caucus In their hands the antl-Harncs
people went to wwrk.
John Knight of Wyoming offered a
resolution which would have put the cau
cus on record as declaring for a Speaker
who would represent progi esslvo Ideas and
who would be against the kind of tactics
that had blocked reform In the past
Resolution Aimed at Harnea,
Barnes's supporters know that the reso
lution was put forward to squelch the
Ktate chairman. It might ns well have
named him. They saw that It was
designed to wreck Hlnman's candidacy
for Speaket. The Hiinilis element started
a fight. Mr. Adler of Monro whs afraid
that the resolution "would reflect on
somebody." Assemblymen Smith and
Hurllngame thought It would seem like
dictating to the absent Assemblymen
elect. This or that objection was put
forward. Hoth sides matin a quick oount
of noses and when Hanies's men saw that

Mexico Citt, Dec. S. Word readied
here to-night that the French Consular
representative In Monterey had been killed
In a rebel attack on the town. The for

The decision of the American Smelting
