TAMMANY LEADER
REFUSES TO VOTE
Alton B. Parker, as Tempo
rary Chairman, Takes Oc
casion' to Reply to Attack
of Bryan at Baltimore.
By International News Service.
SYRACUSH, N. Y., Oct. 2. Con
gressman William Sul.er was
nominated for governor of Xow
York on tho fourth ballot at
o'clock this morning by lho
Democrats after a four-hour cession
that was filled with exciting events.
Although Sul.cr was really nominated
by acclamation, the fourth ballot was
completed in compliance with the
statutes.
Whou tlio result was annouueed it
showed that. Sulzcr bad 4-17 and Martin
H. Glynn of Albany 3 votes. Sulzor
was a consistent gainer after the first
ballot, and it was evident when the
third ballot was concluded that nothing
could stop tho sentiment which had
about reached flood height for the
Washington county man.
The names of fivo men were put be
fore the delegates as candidates. Thoy
were Governor Johu A. Dix, Congress
man Sul'.or, Herman A. Met& of New
York, George B. Burd of Buffalo and
Martin H. Glynn of Albany.
Switched to Sulzer.
At the beginning of the fourth ballot
tho ball was set rolling for Sulzor by
Albany county, which changed its nine
votes from Glynn lo tho congressman.
This was followed by two other coun
ties with small representations, which
also switched to Sulzer.
"Without waiting for Kings county to
be called, Herman A. Metz, former
controller of New York, took the floor
and withdrew from lho contest in favor
of Sul.er, and the Sulzer crowd went
wild. In an ins.taut Senator Robert F.
Wagner of Now York was on his feet
and announced that New York would
cast its 105 votes for Mr, Sulzer.
Throughout the night Charles F. Mur
pln"', the Tammany leader, sat silent,
yet with an air of confidence. Not
onco did he vote. When his name was
called on the first ballot, Mr. Murphy
announced:
fMr, Murphy wished to be excused."
After that nothing was heard 'from the
leadfir.
Marl in H. Gh'iin of Albany was the
unanimous choice of the delegates for
lieutenant governor.
Parker's Speech.
Alton B. Parker tool; the oppor
tunity afforded by his speech today as
permanent chairman of tho Democratic
state convoution to auswer his critics
at. the Baltimore convention. Tt was
the first political speech the former
presidential candidate had made sinco
ho was tho atorm-ccntor of the battle
waged by William J, Bryan agninst
his selection ns temporary chairman of
tho Democratic national convontiou.
Tn defending himself ho nlso de
fended the New York state delegation,
which also was the object of Mr.
Bryan's attacks. Mr. Tarkor said tho
action of the Now York delegation at
Baltimore was dictated by the desiro
to promote harmony.
"Yon may ask inc," ho said, "why
tho New York delegation, with
ninety men, at least twenty-five of
vrboni were capable of ontoring upon
that platform, failed to discuss the at
tack which was made indirectly nnd
directly upon tho delegates and upon
mvsolf, why did thoy keep silentl
Because wo believed it was better that
we should suffer a little indignity than
by entering into n dispute ,with the
Tontlcmen upon the platform (Mr.
Brvan). which would divido that; con
volition in two; and we hold our
peace, t

would be nominated, and wo de

ELY, Nov., Oct, 2. Tho strike of
the miners here is complete a.nd
the indications tonight are that
the operators will not attempt
to open their mines again this winter.
The windows of all the compan' build
ings arc being boarded up and hundreds
of men wore prepared tonight to leavo
tho camp Jn the morning-, Tho oro sup
ply at tho Steptoo mill probably will
be exhausted tomorrow and the plant
will then close down.
Not a saloon in Ely was open todaj'
and there is no disorder in the camp.
The miners were paid off today, tho
sracltermcn will receive their pay to
morrow aud by night it is cxpoctcd
that a majority of the miners will have
deserted tho camp. With tho closing
of tho mills tomorrow more than 4000
men will bo idle.
Charles H. Moycr, president of tbo
Western Federation of Miners, in a
statement tonight said that the strike
conld have beon averted had tho min
ing oporators consented to meet with
the union leaders.
Miners Are Orderly.
The walkout todaj' was without dis
order. The men loft tho vicinity of tho
mines as soon as tho strike was called
and ha'c busied themselves today in
getting ready their possessions for ship
ment from tho district. Other than an
unusual large crowd of men on tho
streets there is hardly an indication of
a striko. No attempts have been made
to resume work nor havo any negotia
tions been started to bring about a
settlement.
President Mover says he lias the sit
uation w,ell in hand and does not wish
to extend the tie-up into the Arizona
and New Mexico properties, but that
he will do so if necessary to secure
recognition of the union and the in
crcaso of fifty cents a day demanded
by the local miners and those of Bing
ham. Nearly all the foreigners at the
mines are well armed and a few ran
dom shots wore heard this morning,
but there was no clash with the au
thorities today.
Mill Men to Quit.
Operations continued at tho concen
trating mills at McGill in which the
low grado Nevada Consolidated oro is
prepared for smelting, long after the
mines had been closed, but the union
men in the mill made no sccrot of their
intention to obey ' the strike call at
the end of tho day's work. k
Two carloads of oro wore moved from
lho mine to the mill without opposi
tion. The Nevada Consolidated paid
off its miners today, Tomorrow will
be pay day at tho Stoptoe smoltor.
The smoltor will bo compelled to shut
off its oil-burning furnaces for want
of material to work upon If tho mill
stops, Tegnrdless of tho disposition of
the smclterracn.
A request made this morning by
Manager Mills of tbo Giroux Consoli
dated property that tho men Tunning
the pumps in the deep Alpha workiugs
bo allowed to continue, was rofusod by
tho striko leaders. The niiuo will fill
with water rapidly at great loss to tho
company if tbo pumps are idle, and
tho strikers rely upon this fact as an
inducement to tho Giroux to rccognizo
the demands of the union.
