Harrison Himself Refuses
Deny the Interview.
TOLD TO SEVEN PEOPLE

(By United Press.)
Old Forge, N. Y., July JS. Away back
here on the Adirondack mountains where
the subject of politics is almost boring, the
people are doing nothing to-day but dis
cussing the announcement that General
Harrison would not accept the presidency
The newspapers containing the announce
ment readied here at G o'clock. They were
eagerly sought and more eagerly read.
Ail of theni contained a denial of tho btory
by Major Poole.
All who read the denial and who wcro
familiar with what had taken place a
Dodd's Camp and afterward on the
steamer Zip were surprised at what the
major said. The language attributed to
Gen. Harrison was told to at least seven
persons, "n hose names are known.
In his denial Major Poole says he did
not tell to any one that Gen. Harrison had
said that he would not be a candidate for
the Presidency. As n matter of fact,
Major Poole, after he and his friends
had boarded tlie steamer Zip on their way
to the Forge House from Dodd's Camp,
called theni around him and confided to
llieui the result of the interview he and
Joseph L. Sayles had with Gen. Harrison.
WHAT HE SAID.
Major Poole told the party that Gen.
Harrison told him that the trip to Syra
cuse would not be taken during tho State
fair week, and for the Grand Army not
to expect 'um to be present. After tell
ing them His, Major Poole told them what
Gen. HarrjbOii had said about the Presi
dency. He also told them not to state
the conversation to any newspaper men.
He laid particular stress upon this.
Wlien Major Poole reached tho Forge
House he was asked if politics had been
dibcusMHl daring his visit to Gen. Harri
son. He replied that there was no refer-
! enee made to anything that partook of
tlie nature of politics.
This afternoon Joseph I. Sayles, who is
still here conducting a law suit, was called
upon in relation to his interview with Gen.
Harrison. "When asked if he hud read
Major Pook'sinterview, he said thathehad.
Havo you anything to say for publication
regarding tLe published statement about
Gen. Harrison and the iTeslucncjv ne .
"I have nothing whatever to say," was
Mr. Sayles' answer.
""Was tli language attributed to Gen.
Harrison correctly reported?"
"I will not aus weranytmestionsregardlng

All efforts to have Mr. Sayles talk for
publication about the Interview he and
Major Poole had with Gen. Harrison wore

was reading his mail. He greeted the re
porter cordially and inquired as to the

"What, if anything, have you to say,

"I have nothing to bay about the story,"
answered tho General, pleasantly, but
"Will you not deny or affirm tho truth
of tho Poole interview?"
"I will not."
General Harrison said that all efforts to

SHERIFF PALMER'S DESCENT
Accompanied by Seven Deputies IIo
Sv k ped Down on Oak Grove- and
Cleaned Out tlio Place Tools of
Trade "Worth $1,000 "Wero Cap
turedMany Gamblers Surprised.
The hot coals of vice that havo heated
the atmosphere of Alexandria county for
so many months received such a raking
over from Sheriff Palmer and his deputies
last night that they aro pretty nearly ex
tinguished. Accompanied by seven trusty
subordinates tlie newly elected sheriff swept
along the river front and completely cleaned
out notorious Oak Grove, and Foster's
gambling hell above the Aqueduct bridge.
It is stated that the sheriffs action
was brought about by a tour of inspection
made yesterday afternoon by Judge Miller,
Prosecuting Attorney Pugh, and his as
sistant, Mr. Mullowney. They embarked
in the police boat Joe Blackburn in tlio
afternoon and went In the neighborhood of
the Aqueduct Bridge, where are the no
torious resorts so often exposed by Tho
Times, and there they found Nelson's aud
Foster's places in full blast, but Heath's
was closed up. Upon returnin g to the city,
it is said, they sent word to BheritI Palmer of
what they had seen, with the result stated.
The sports, who cross the river every
evening to loso their money on the green
cloth, were gathered iu large uuniuers
at Oak Grove last night. The little boat
that plies between the lesort and Georj:e
towa, was filled on every trip, and quite
a large sum of mouey went over into Vir
ginia, some of It, perhaps, belonging to
"Washington folks who have no eubpicion
how it was going.
INTERIOK OF NELSON'S.
Nelsou's place is quite a large affair.
On the first floor as you go in from the
wharf there is a largo room, fitted up
with a bar, where tho preliminaries are
goue through with, and entranco gained
to the next room.
Id this place there nre two faro tables,
a large hazzard board, and a roulette
wheel. In another part is a place set anart
for crap shooting.
On the second floor keno is excluslvoly
played and it is there the gentlemen with
the large wads go to exchange them.
There are at least twenty-five men, some
of whom are well known in Washington,
who were busily engaged in trying to solve
the mysteries of faro, or woo the roulette
wheel, or risk their money at hazzard, or,
perhaps, amuse themselves in an inex
pensive game of crap, all saturated wJth
cheap liquor from the bar near by.
Everything was going swimmingly and
money was changing hands with customary
speed, the rake off swelling the "kitty" to
her usual proportions, and there was no
suspicion that the 'house was to be pulled
at 10 o'clock.
A door leads from the. first-floor room
to tho road going to the Acqueduct bridge,
aud it was through this that the sheriff and
seven of his black and white deputies quietly
entered and mingled with the players.
At that time Jack Welth "w as on the look
out, which by tlie way he failed to perform
in his usual active fashion, and Fatty
Johusonwas dealing the cards in masterly
The eager players were startled by the
order in gruff tones.
"Gentlemen, lay down your hands."
Looking up, in alarm, they saw a burly
negro, armed with a huge club, throw back
bis coat and display on his vest a badge
bearing the words of his authority.
At the same time Sheriff Palmer and the
other deputies mado themselves known and
guarded the two doors leading out of tho
rOoni to prevent escape.
The affair was eo quickly and quietly
conducted that not a man was able to get
away, although much fright prevailed.
No violence was offered.
Fatty Johnson caught up the money in
the two drawers of the keno bank, and as
DO YOU WONDER
he did so Sheriff Palmer pounced upon
him and commanded him to give up the
Johnson handed the sheriff the contents
of one fo his pockets but failed to turn
over the money thrust into another, which
in tlie hurry the sheriff overlooked.
Juck Welch was put under arrest, but in
tho excitement got away, and sneaking
down to the boat that had Just arrived

John James wo-s the only other man who
got away, and ho took to the woods. All

When the convention was called to order
at the Grirfin Opera House ,at 10 o'clock
the full capacity of tho house, more than
1.000, was strained in the effort to seat
those who gathered there and great crowds
unable to gain adriiittance struggled in
the stairways and sidewalks for entranco.
While the meeting was composed over
whelmingly of Democratic representatives
including many of tho most Democratic
loaders of the State, notably Chairman A. S.
Clay, chairman of the State Democratic
committee, there was"a great many Popu
lists on hand , who sho wed by theirdemeauor
that they were willing to join in tho effort
for tho restoration of silver to its fullf unction
as a standard mouey metal. They were
perfectly quiet and deeply interested.
They refrained from an exposition of
their views and were perfectly satisfied
that the committee of resolution of twelve
should be composed entirely of rock-ribbed
free coinage Democrats. They made uo
speeches in tho convention but unanimously
voted for the resolution reported .

Interview "With Mr. Sovereign.
There is a bfg fight ahead. It will ex
tend to every section and city of the United
States, and may be more far-reaching in
its consequences than any labor agitation
of recent years. It will be nothing lets than
a national boycott of national bank notes.
It will be conducted by the order of
Knights of Labor of America, and will,
It is expected, bo joined in by all other
labor organizations, the Farmers Alli
ance, the People's party, bimetallic leagues,
reform clubs, and kindred associations,
and, as General Master Workman Sovereign
puts it, "all lovers of liberty."
The executive board of the Knights of
Labor have been considering the matter
for some time, and the result of this con
sideration yesterday materialized iu the
form of a manifesto, which, over the
signature of Mr. Sovereign, will at once
be sent broadcast through the country.
An advance draft of this circular was
last night shown to a Times reporter by
the general master workman at Kulghts of
Labor headquarters, and it makes "mighty
interesting reading." It says:
INDICTMENT OF THE BANKS.
"Behind the proposition to perpetuate
a monetary system in this country based
on a single gold standard is a proposition
to perpetuate the national banks. In
fact, the national banks, in their individ
ual capacity and through the American
Bankers Association, are the bulwarks
of a single gold standard money. They
realize that gold alone will not be ac
cepted by the American people as the only
circulating medium, and therefore they
demand that the monetary prerogatives
of government bo farmed out to them, mak
ing private interests and not the public
welfare the only motive for furnishing a
paper circulation to meet the require
ments of business.
'The national banks are responsible for
lhe destruction of the greenbacks, the pay-
ment of the bond in coin, the funding acts,
the demonetization of silver, and all the
corrupt financial legislation in this coun
try for thu past thirty years. They have
boycotted aud discriminated against every
kind of money that promised relief to the
debtor class and prosperity to the indus
trial masses. They are boycotters of the
most cruel and merciless kind.
DECLARING A BOYCOTT.
"Now we propose, through the Knights
ot Labor, Farmers' Alliance, People's
party, and all reform orgnaizations, that a
boycott be placed on the notes of national
banks, and that on and after September 1,
1S95, our people be requested and urged
to accept no national bankbills in any of the
ordinary transactions of business.
"National bank notes are legal tender
between the national government and the
people and between the banks and thegov-
j ernrnent, but not legal tender between in
dividuals. They are not legal tender for
private debts, wages or merchandise, nor
r nt tt,D mnitifnrinnR tmn.vnnMnno thnf.
any of the multifarious transactions that
enter into business intercourse between
Individuals; and it is gonerally agreed that
If only one person ina hundred boycotts these
notes it will make the work effective and
and depreciate them . aud force the banks
into a humiliating defense of their 'fiat
WHAT ITS EFFECT WILL BE.
"A boycott of this kind will agitate the
money question, test the sincerity of some
doubtful free silver advocates, and stick
a nagger into me neart oi me money power
miuiu iui mi; uugui ji uns qiula iijlo iiiu
hearts ot the people.
"I am not entirely cold-blooded, but be
lieve in meeting the enemy on Its own field.
It may be argued that the boycott herein
proposed will disturb business and make
money scarcer than it already is, and that
during these hard times people oughtto ac
cept any kind of money. But let it be re
member that this boycott is against a
soulless combine that is responsible for
the hcarclty of money , low wages and busi
"This boycott will precipitate the great
conflict with the people oa one side and
the banks o the other, and the Issues will
be as sharply drawn as In the struggle of
Andrew Jackson with the old United States
Bank sixty years ago. It will force the cor
porations and every form of private monop
oly to take slde3 In the comtest. It will
force a plutocratio press and a foreign
money' power to reveal the hidden hand of
American politics aad establish an im
passible barrier between the tolllNg masses
of America and the Shylocks aad pensioned
lordsof the world. And if au attempt ismade
to force national bank notes upon the public
through such chanHel as they are by law
made a legal tender, we will establish a
redemption bureau, aiul, through exist
to unload the loeked-up greenbacks for the
benefit of the people.
."The struggle of 189G must result in
victory for the common people, or the hope
of American liberty is lost and recovery
impossible through methods now functioned
AN AGGRESSIVE CAMPAIGN.
"Tho campaign must be waged against
tho combined foe of two continents, against
the allied forces of tho plutocracy and
tyranny throughout the world, and, in UiO
light of recent events, it must be the most
aggressive and offensive campaign ever
waged in this country.
"Wo can expect no permanent relief
without a struggle, and thereforo 1st u
precipitate the conflict in time and on line
that will expose the umound money of tha
money advocates. This can be mest ef
fectually done by a national boycott on
the uusound, un-American, unconstitutional
notes of the national bank.
"On and after September 1. 1895, IeH
every Knight of Labor and every person
whose love of Justice is above the sordid
interests of the tyrants refuse to accept;
national bank notes in payment for wages,
produce, or in payment of any debt or
obligation not made necessary by the lim
ited legal tender qualities of the notes.
"Boycott the notes of national bank3,
says the circular m conclusion.
EVERY KNIGHT MUST OBEY.
Asked if it were obligatory on ever
Knicht of Labor to ober this order after
! the date named, Mr. Sovereign emphati
cally answered that it was.
"Not only that," said he. "but we ex
pect similar orders to be Issued by the b?ad3
or all sympathetic organizations. The na
tional banks are responsible for most of the
ills that affect the toiling masses of this
country, anl this is the most effectual way to
cop's with tliem. While they cry down the

THE REDEMPTION BUREAU.
Mr. Sovereign was very earnest in
speaking or the proposed redemption bureau
to be established in the event that national
bank notes a re forced on the public.
"We have an organization powerful
enougn to establish it," said he. "It Is
not an idle threat. If the national banka
show fight we will onirkly nnlock tha

educate our people on the money question,

notes would not be accepted in payment of
a claim against it. In CaradVH, N. J., e
passenger tendered a $5 bank bill to a
Ftrret car eoochietor. who could not makr
change. The passenger was ejected, ami
brought suit for damages against the com

ities of the nota the case was dtemtesec
Mr. Sovereign predicted that there wook
be many cases of the kind for the lawyers
in the near future.
Mr. Sovereign left for Texas last night.
