New York, Oct. 27. The Rcpubtcnn
City committee met at Republican
headquarters this afternoon. Mr. Quigg
presided, and all or the members of
the committee were present. Reports
were received from all of the district
leaders and captains. They nhow that
General Tracy's election is assured.
Senator Piatt said after the meeting
that after a canvass rf all the enrolled
Itepubllcans in New York and in
Brooklyn and Queens county he felt
convinced that instead of General Tra
cy getting a plurality of 30,000 he
would have a plurality of C0.000.
General Daniel E. Sickles sent word
to Republican headquarters this fore
noon thnt he Intended to vote for Gen

PRESIDENT QUIGG'S STATEMENT
Following a long caucus of Republi
can district leaders today, President
Quigg, of the Republican committee,
gave out the following statement:
"The Republican organization has
carefully canvassed the vote in every
election district of every borough In the
new city. Several assembly districts
have been canvassed two times, and
pome have been canvassed three. Each
of these reported canvasses shows that
Tracy's strength Is growing and that
Low's support which has never been
large, becomes smaller every day.
There are only two districts in New
York city in which Mr. Low will have
any substantial Republican support.
These are the 27th and the 29th. Jji the
19th he will not have 2,000 votes, and
three-qunrters of what he does secure
will be Democratic. rile proportion of
Democratic votes to Republican votes
In his support holds good in the Twenty-first,
the Twenty-third, the Twen-ty-ilfth
nnd the Thirty-first and the
Trans-Harlem districts. In all those
districts, they being the districts out
of which practically the whole of the
Low vote will be drawn, the n't effect
of Mr. Low's candidacy will be to in
crease the majorities of .the Republi
can party over Van Wyck, Low's vote
will be smaller than Van Wyck's in
each district. We shall carry New
York for Tracy by just ahout the plu
rality over Van Wyck which was ob
tained by Governor Black last year
"In Brooklyn the situation Is similar
to the situation in Now York, but the
proportion of Democrats to Republi
cans In Low's following will naturally
bi smaller than It Is here. There the
Ploportlon will be about half and half.
The plurality for Tracy over Van
AVyck will be greater in Brooklyn than
in New York, and Is likely to reach
10.000. Low's vote will leave the two
great part lea as to comparative
strength in just about their normal
conditions, but George's vote will so
reduce Van Wyck's as to give us for
Tracy a first rate plurality. On th
conditions as they exist today Low
might have in Biooklyn as many as
PO.O00 or, in be liberal, SS.OOO votes. Rut
his Republican support Is rapidly fall
ing away from him. There art thous
ands of Republicans who have been
misled by the Nw York Tribune and
the New York Mail and Express Into
the idea that Low has some chance of
election. They are llndlng nut. now
that this Idea Is pieposterous and that
It Is being circulated by these newspa
pers maliciously and dishonestly. Tills
fait is getting abroad throughout the
wards In Brooklyn, where the Low
boom has been inflated with the nat
ural result that the gas Is going out
of the boom and the boom Is collaps

J Kennedy Ted. the secretary of tho
Citizens' union, hits Issued a state
ment to the public saying that further
contributions to tlie Union campaign
fund are not ne-.dtd. Tho statement
"Tho people's response to the appeal
of the Citizens' union for contributions
to Its campaign fund have been so nu
merous and generous thnt the treas

can be legitimately expended between
now nnd election day. No candidate
on the Citizens' union ticket has con
tributed directly or Indirectly one cent

of corporations been solicited or ac
"A faithful statement of expend!
turts will be rendered to you as soon
as my accounts can be audited.
"Further contributions are unnccos
wry, and the surplus fund they would
now create would bo nn embarrassment
to the finance committee. It would bo
dllllcult, perhaps even impossible, to
restoie tiueh surplus legally and right
fully, since a great number of the
contributions, largo and small, which
have readied the treasury, came from

DR. M'OLVNN APPEARS.
The I'ninniis Clergyman Visits Henry
New York, Oct. 27. Rev. Edwr.rd Mc
Glynn, whose advocacy of Henry
George's theories brought him into
conflict with Archbishop Corrlgan in
JSSC, is a frequent visitor at George's
hr-udquarters. While there todny Dr.
McGlynn said that there was no clash
between the Catholic church and Henry
George's theories. He spoke it h'is own
case and asserted that he had made
no retraction or recantation of the
position lie had taken eleven years
ago. Ho said that Mgr. Satolll's chief
mission to this country was to bring
about a reconciliation between him and
Archbishop Corrlgan. Dr. McGlynn
said thnt he did not perform the cere
mony of submission by "bell, book nnd
candle," but remained standing during
the short ceremony, which lasted about
three minutes, and then knelt before
Mgr. Satolli asking his blessing.
As Was to be expected, the blcyclo
has appeared ns a factor In the cam
paign. Theodore B. Willis, nt present
commissioner of works of the city of
Brooklyn, Is a candidate for the regis

Interest there Is published a statement
of the street Improvements made in tho

with an exhortation to bicyclists to
vote for the man who has done so much
for their conveniences nnd pleasure.

General Manager Toucey, of the New
York Central, believes that the disas
ter was caused by a break In the en
gine's machinery. Mr. Toucey said to
day: "I believe something broke on the
engine and ploughed up the ground
nnd parred the roadbed so that It loos
ened and slid Into the river. The sud
den stopping of the speed of the train
caused the cars to run up on each other
and helped to loosen the roadbed. That
is what I believe caused the accident.
That is the conclusion I reached from
my investigation of the facts. If there
had been a dynamite explosion before
the train reached that place, the en
gine could not have passed over it nnd
soventy-ilvo feet besides, us it did."

New York, Oct. 27. Tho Electrical
Engineer will publish tomorrow tho
llrst nuthorltatlve nccount of Thomas
A. Edison's success in recovering by
electrical menns the iron contained In
low grade ore. The Inventor's experi
ments have been carried on during tho
past six yenrs nt the old Ogden Iron
mines, a few miles from Dover, N. J.,
where ho has built up a plant covering
several acres of ground and which,
after many experiments, is now capa
ble of producing dally from 1,000 to 1,
noo tons of almost chemically pure
Tho ore contains on the average
about twenty-five per cent, of Iron nnd
resembles In appearance a very poor
quality of gray rock. Mr. Edison states
that there are 200,000.000 tons of tills
ore o.l the land Immediately surround
ing his plant, from which can be pro
duced C0,000,000 tons of Iron. His pro
cess, In brief, consists of Masting the
ore from the mountain sides and then
by means of steam shovels nnd minia
ture railroad cars conveying it to mas
sive crushers where It is broken up
nnd passed on to other mills, where it
is pulverized. The powder is then al
lowed to fall In close proximity to elec
tro magnets, which deflects tho iron
to ono side, nnd the non-metallic mat
ter falls m the other side by gravity.
From the time the ore is blasted until
it is resolved into this metallic form
nnd compressed Into briquettes for
shipment, the process is entirely auto
matic. FIGHT WITH INDIANS,

furs which they had, but they resisted,
whereupon the warden clubbed the
older Indian with a gun until he be
came unconscious, and then shot him.
He next shot the other Indlnn and his
wife, mortally wounding both. In the
meantime, tho older Indian, having re
covered consciousness, shot and killed
the warden. Dr. E. S. Hart, overseer
in charge of the sub agency, sent Mar
tin Branchnud nnd n detail of Indian
police to the scene to investigate the
matter thoroughly. No detailed ac
count of the fight can be hnd, as the
only Information received as yet was
brought In by an Indian boy 12 or 13
years of age, who witnessed the shoot

among the Indians nnd Dr. Hart Is un
willing to express any opinion regard

ed that only state politics had been
discussed. Harmony will do much
toward bringing out a big vote for the
ticket to counter balance that cast for
the Independent candidate. Next year
will come the gubernatorial fight as
well ns that of Quay for re-election to
the senate, nnd a big vote this fall
for the independent candidate might
mean an independent candidate for
governor and an expensive contest In
Senator Quay afterwards dined with
Candidate Beacom, Senator Penrose,
and several others. He left on the 8.50
traJn tonight for his home In Beaver
but promised to be back by Thurs
day to remain nnd help Chairman El
kin until the close of the campaign.
ON TO VICTORY.
Every Indication points to a rousing
Republican victory for the enltro
ticket next Tuesday. The party's
lighting blood Is up at last and that
portends a Waterloo for tho enemy.
But no individual Republican should
relax his efforts. This is the clianco
of a life time to rivet and clinch Re
publican supremacy in once Demo

sembles. 'Madrid, Oct. 27, A formal denial was
issued by the government of Spain to
day of the statement that tho Spanish
minister at Washington, Senor Dupuy
de Lome, had presented a note to the
government of the United Stntes on the
subject of the filibustering expeditions
which are nlleged to have left the
American ports for Cuba. The Span
ish minister, it is explained, only made
a verbal complaint to the government
nt Washington regarding tlie depar
ture of filibusters from ports In tho
Washington, Oct. 27. The event of
the day at the state department was
the receipt of the long'expected cable
gram from United States Minister
Woodford at Madrid, transmitting the
answer of .the Spanish government to
his representations in the interest of
peace In Cuba. Tills message began
to come In Installments about 2 o'clock
this morning, and it was nearly noon
today before it was all In hand at tho
siate depavtment. It was not tho
length of the message that occupied
the wires all of that time, but the fact
that it was all In groups: of figures and
that It was probably being filed in
small batches as it was turned into tlie
complicated state department cipher In
All of this work had to he undone at
tho state department and the message
translated from the cipher back again
into good English. This occupied near
ly nil of the day. so that it was half
past 3 o'clock before the first fair
copy of the message was turned out.
It was not so long; In fact there wero
a little less than one thousand words
in the message, for Mr. Woodford, In
stead of cabling the whole of the Span
ish answ.er to his note had contented
himself with reducing the matter to a
brief outline. The first copy was taken
at once to the president, not being en
trusted to a messenger but being de
livered by Chief Clerk Michaels In per
son at the White house.
AVILL NOT BE MADE PUBLIC.
After due opportunity had been nl
lowed the president .to read the mes
sage an nppllention was made for a
statement of Its contents or nature.
This was declined by Secretary Porter
and It was said that under no circum
stances would the correspondence bo
made public before consideration by
From unofficial Information that has
reached certain administration officials
in advance of this measure of Mr.
Woodford's ns to tho nature of the
Spanish reply, it Is evident that In
neither language nor subject matter
Is the communication likely to bo tak
en as offensive by our government.
It may be, It Is true, regarded as In
sufficient to meet the issue presented
by Mr. Woodford In his note, but offi
cials of the state department say that
in view of what has already been ac
complished by the new Spanish, cab
inet in reforming abuses in Cuba. In
removing Weyler, and In projecting
what appears to be a liberal measure
of autonomy, our government will
certainly rest, at least until congress
assembles, and afford the new Spanish
government a reasonable time to curisfl
out its plans.
