HILL WILL RETIRE.
Leader Of New York Democrats
Will Not Be In Politics
After January i.
Estpus. N. Y., August 29.-Judge
Parker refused to make any state
ient or to give out any expression of
opinion today regarding David B.
Hill's intention to retire from politi
cal leadership of his party in New
York on January first next.
It is pointed out that Mr. Hill let it
be known some time since that he
would accept no office under the ad
ministration if Parker should be
elected. and it is recalled that he said
he would retire a year ago had it not
been for the fact that friends urged
hinm to remain in comm!andl of the demi
icratic forces in New York until after
the present presidential campaign.
It s gnerally believed that Mr.
H ill will appear in the campaign onlyv
'n rare occasions. and( that his
speechies at countty fairs will con)i
it.' his otnly work.
Judge Parker spent the day going
*tver his letter of acceptance, which
is now nearing hnal completion.
Albany. N. Y., August 20.-David
B. Hill in conversatiotn with friends
here anniounced that he intends to
retire from politics on January I
next. and that no matter what the re
stilt of the coming campaign may be
in state or nation he wil relinquish
the leadership of the democratic
parry in New York.
lie adlded that in the event of dem
ocratic success this fall he would not
accept any position tunder the nation
:! or state dlemocratic administra
tions, or again become a candidate
for election to any office wvhatever.

he had in-endled to take such action a
