Late tonight a boom was started for

Murphy and lle leaders arc not ex

Tammany leader says the convention Is
to be unboased and that every opportu

of the delegates concerning; candidates.
Dix Is -Out of Race.
Mr. Murphy's cloaert advisers admitted
that the iminc of Governor Dix had been
practically eliminated. It was oald Mur
phy had found that the oppodltlon to the
governor comes from too many quarters
to be ignored.
Murphy and the county leaders were
jubilant tonight because of an unexpected
victory in the selection of former Judge
Alton B. Parker for the convention's per
manent chairman over United States Sen
ator O'Gorman, whose name, has been
put forward by a ntl -organization men.
Those seeking to denl a blow to Mur

to make an Issue over the proposal to
name Parker. When the permanent or

of Jamestown suggested the name 'of
Senator O'Gonnari who is here urging

The senator later wild : his . name

recently which favored Mr Parker's se

however, and tonight were considering

years ago.
"Tho combined salaries of the 'positions
were $70,000 and do you recollect we
spent 3110,000?" asked Flinn.
"Xo; 1 don't remember anything of

ROUMANIA KEEPS
OUT OF STRUGGLE
LONDON, Oct. 1. "With the exception
of Roumanla, tho Balkan countries are
placing their armies on a war footing,
but no stop haa been taken lndfcatlng
an outbreak of hostilities. A dispatch
filed at Constantinople at 11 o'clock to
night announced that the foreign minis
ter was without any communication from
Bulgaria or Servla and no definite move
in the way of combined action on tho
part of tho great powers has been made.
Short of actual hostilities, however, the
situation could hardly bo worse. The re
port that Turkoy has decided to selao all
Greek vcsBels in Turkish waters has an
especially warlike appearanco, while it is
further reported that Greeco Is about to
proclaim tho annexation of Crete an act
which Turkey has repeatedly declared
would be considered a casus belli.
The Nloue Frole Prosso of Vienna ex
presses doubt whether the great powers
are In harmony on the Balkan pltuutlon.
It regards the action of tho Balkan states
as a defeat for European diplomacy and
thinks Servla is so dovote'aA to Russia
that ahe would not have ordered mobiliza
tion -without Rusuia's consent.
Peace depends largely on tho attitude
of Roumanla, according to the Constanti
nople correspondent of tho Daly Tele
graph, and much significance is attached
to a long interview which the 'Roumanian
minister at Constantinople ha3 had with
tho Turkish foreign minister,
A dispatch from Sola to the Exchange

Greece, Servla and Montenegro havu pre

his manner Indicating baflled rage and
despair, Burton W. Gibson today heard
himself named as tho murderer of Mrs.
Rosa Ssabo by Judge Herburt Royce, who
ordered thc accused lawyer back to jail
without ball to await the action of tho
grand Jury. Mrs. Gibson, struggling to
control her grief, leaned over and patted
him on tho back. Within half an hour
Gibson was back In his cell once more,
but this time occupying an altogether
different statuo. lie now stands Infor

Newlands is ouo of tin; most populur

his work in behalf of reclamation leg

all the delegates whenever it is men

in tho race for the 1913 congress meet- j
