Havana, Sept. 25. Victory for the
liberal or revolutionary party seemed
certain last night at the conclusion of a
long conference between a committee
of insurgents and the American peace
commissioners. The insurgent commit
tee announced there was practically no
difference remaining between them and
Secretaries Taft and Bacon, and ..-.ey

agreed to at a meeting to be held in the

Buffalo, Sept. 25. District Attorney
Jerome's candidacy for governor was
practically withdrawn today at an ad
journed meeting of the so-called Al
bany conference of the Anti-Hearst dem
ocrats. Representatives from about
25 counties attended and it was decided
the delegates opposed to the nomination
of Hearst should concentrate on either
Judge Gaynor or Mayor Adams as ex
pediency may require.
Tit m many i.t Deliberate
The Tammany hall delegation,
which is generally regarded as hold
ing the balance of power, lias not yet
held a caucus, though it has been the
custom to do so on the night previous
to the convention. Some delegates de
clare a caucus is unnecessary as the
leaders know pretty well what the sit
uation in Tammitny In. A poll of the
delegation may be made on the floor of
.o CliHucc for Holt.
There has hewn much talk of wmie
Tammany delegates not attending the
caucus. Without a caucus any bolting
element would be unable to show its
hand and Tammany thus wiuld re
main a solid phalanx before the con
vention. The selection of Lewis Nixon
as temporary chairman was the first
Tammany victory and was also re
garded as a ioint gained for Hearst.
Nixon is close to Leader Charles F.
llurphy of Tammany hall, and was
set to the convention as delegate
from Murphy's own district.
I'indM fienrat Sentiment.
Murphy's only comment on the situa
tion in Tammany has been that he
found "plenty of Hearst sentiment" in
the organization. As to the chances of
the other candidates he has remained
Culled to Order t 12:.0.
When at 12:.ri) State Chairman Meyer
rapped for order and nominated Lewis
Nixon of New York for temporary chair
man, the hall was comfortably filled.
Nixon was elected without opposition.
He spoke briefly. He asserted person
al grievances, real or fancied, should
not be indulged in to the point of re
volt. Mrnnn Su-ceM nt I'oIIm.
"Let us hold in abeyance all feelings
to the one end of harmony in action."
Thu done, he aid, the party would go
from the convention to victory in both
state and nation. When the necessary
preliminary work had been completed
the convention adjourned to 11 tomor
row, the session having lasted 21 min

OPENING EXHIBIT, WEDNESDAY emd THUR.SDAY,
SEPTEMBER. 26 and 27.
ASHION has decreed the styles. The close fitting models
vie with the large and flaring creations in point of popular
ity. An advance showing of modes that will be most fav
ored by critical women. Two leading styles are receiving much
favorable notice The "Lillian Russell" and the "Virot." The
first is a large flat brim hat with high crown, the brim somewhat
fore-shortened. In either felt or velvet it is a strikingly handsome
hat. The "Frof" is the new felt "hood" feature, bent, folded and
crushed into all conceivable shapes, trimmed with feathers, ribbons
and velvets in tasteful combinations. Many other models, including
adaptations of the latest London and Paris ideas, coupled with the
best creations of our own experts will make this a notable exhibit.
Also a strong representation of the celebrated Clarence M. Phipps,
New York styles, and the "Gage" hats, which are so well known in
all the large fashion centers. All combine to popularize this opening
display, and meet the requirements of all the varied tastes.
