The Gamly Company from Albany.
Saratoga, Sept- 15. The "slate" pro
Tided for the Democratic state convention
Twhich met here today is as follows: For
governor, . Roswell P. Flower; for lieut
entant governor, William F. Sheehanj
for secretary of state, Frank Rice (renoai
ination); for treasurer, Elliott Danfoith
(renoniination); for comptroller, Frank
Campbell; for attorney general, Simon
W. Rosendale; for engineer and surveyor,
Martin Schentk. Tbe only opposition so
far developed to this ticket that is, seri
ous opposition is to the name of Sheeha i;
and it is a coincidence that the trou'jle
comes from the same county that con
tained the 'kickers" against the Repub
lican nominee for governor Erie which
county has a man whom the delegates
therefrom want either to le put on t'.e
ticket as canditate for lieutenant gover
nor, or on tbe state committee.
A Family Feuil in the Case
It seems that the father of Sheeban,
'while livinc at Buffalo, was at constant
political war with another political lead
er named Schen. Sueebun, senior, moved
to New York, and Pcheu died, but left a
bod, who is as active a politician as his
father was. Tbe old fight between the
fathers desceuded to the sons, and they
have been making Erie county Democratic
politics very lively for several years. The
row has been brought to the state conven
tion this year, and the Scheu men are, of
course, anything but pleased to see Shee -ban
on the slate for an important office,
and also in position to say that Scheu
shall cot be put on the state committee.
This "rift the lute" is engaging tbe at
tention of all tbe peacemakers in the party
now here, but so tar no harmony has been
Talk of Another Convention.
There is a Scheu and a Sheeban delega
tion from Erie by the way the Sheehan
men are Uill men and the Scheu men are
for Cleveland and the Sbeehan men are
the "regulars," tbe Scheu men being the
contestants. These latter, on their way
tere yesterday, discussed the advisability
of calling another convention in case the
Hill men refused to recognize the contest
ants. They were saying yesterday after
noon that with the Cleveland men in the
convention who will come out if sum
moned they can organize a convent ion of
more than 50 aud nominate Chapin, if
the regular convention reluses to compro
mise with them. Chapin is a Brooklyn
man, who is the principal antagonist ot
Flower for governor. Hon. V. S. Bi
eell, of Buffalo, says things are in very
bad shape in Erie county over this Shee-han-Scntu
fight. He is for any Democrat
for second place, bar Sheehan, but dis
credits tbe telk about a bolt.
Flower Has a Sore Thing.
There is no doubt of the nomination of
Flower for governor on tbe first ballot.
D. J. Griffin, who is Mr. Flower's per
sonal representative, said last evening
that Flower would have every vote on the
first ballot except tbe thirty-six from
Kings county. Griffin puts no faith in
the threat of a second convention. He
says it is a "bluff." "When men are beat
en, they must, take their medicine," he
aaid. Tbe Cbapin men would like to see
a second convention orcanized. They are
feeling very blue. No one outside of
Cbapin's headquarters would talk any
thing but Foer.
NOTABLE DELEGATIONS ARrtlVE.
Tammany and the County Democracy on
Hand Chapln's Forlon Hope.
Hugh McLaughin, the leader of the
Kings county delegation, who had come
to a convention for the first time in years
to give a personal supervision to Mr.
Cbapin's campaign, was especially dis
gruntled. The Chfipin men gained some
spirit when the Kings County Democratic
club, 7u0 strong, marched down Broad
way five abreast, headed by a big band
and wheeled into the Grand Union hotel.
The arrival of this delegation of Chapin
shouters did not give them any new cour
age or deceive them about the prospects;
but it gave them company in their miser
able condition and was very welcome.
Tammany and the Albanians.
Tammany hall has sent 400 braves, who
arrived on three special trains at odd
hours. They made do demonstration when
they came in, bnt they filled the hotel cor
ridors with the brilliance of their crimson
badges with "Tammany Hall" outlined on
them in metal script. Tbe Albany pha
lanx, 100 strong, followed tbe Kings coun
ty delegation. It presented tbe gandiest
appearance of any of tbe visiting delega
tions. The Albanians all wore new si k
hats, black frock coats, yellow kid gloves,
and boutonnieres. Tbe New York county
Democracy came in about C o'clock, bring
ing 3u0 men and u brass band.
Any Amount of Enthusiasm.
It was noted by old timers that there
were more people gathered together in
Saratoga last evening than had ever been
In attendance on a Democratic convention
before. Aud the enthusiasm was none the
less because the principal work of the
convention seemed to have been outlined
clearly in advance, U was announced
'""t tTSHiS -at even tlie voiding
a night session today to gv 2 YH'.t tae
business, has been auafiduiueu and luii
wuuu fcuv icuipuiaijr vr(f au (Baviou DBS
been completed and the committees ap
pointed the convention will adjourn until
9 o'clock tomorrow morning.
An Unavailing Conference.
Tbe representatives of the Cleveland
Democracy of Erie county, under the
leadership ot H. P. Bissell, Col. Norman
E. Mack and A. F. Scheu held a confer
ence last night with a view to bringing
about about a compromise with Sbeehan,
agreeing to support him for lieutenant
governor provided be would agree to
place Scheu on the state committee. Sbee
han offered to appoint a man of his own
choosing on tbe committee, but would
not consent to yield the place to Scheu.
rbe conference, therefore, availed ' noth
ing, and the breach between the two fac
tions b as great as ever.
The sensation of the Day.
The sensation of yesterday politically
was tbe actio of the state committee in
refusing to recognize the County Democ
racy as entitled to representation tn the
convention. The county Democracy held
a raucus early last evening. A resolution
was passed demanding that the County
Democracy be given its full moiety of
re ireeentation in the convention thirty
si:: votes. The state committee met at 8
o'clock, and tbe clerk called the roll,
which contained tbe names of the seventy
t o Tammany men.
' The County Men Are Left Out.
The County Democracy men present
ra Bed a question as to the correctness of
tb roll, and the clerk explained that it
wtsthe only list he had received. Mr.
Fester moved to substitute the names of
thirty-six county Democracy delegates,
an 1 to withdraw the names of thirty-six
Tammany Hall men. Tbis precipitated
th fight wbich'had been impending, and
a heated discussion followed. Finally it
wa moved t oat the roll as read be adopted
tiug leaving the County Democracy
wit h no representation and the motion
wti agreed to 22 to 10. On the announce
ment of the vote the representatives of tbe
County Democracy withdrew. Georpa
Ra nes was elected temporary chairman.
A CORNER IN WHEAT
Cred on the Farmers Predictions of
ltii; Frice Made.
S r. Paul, Sept. 15. Referring to a cir
cular sent from the office of The State,
the Farmers' Alliance organ here, in
which farmers are urged to hold their
whi at and promised f 1.50 and even fJ per
buiiel for it owing to the shortage in Eu
rope, George A. Mueller, editor of The
State, says: "We believe that a large
amc unt of grain will be held back; the
rush is practically over. Our advices
from thousands of correspondents are a.l
to t . lis effect. These early sales were Vy
thoe who were distressed for money and
tboe who were not connected with tbe
Y''orking the Scheme Energetically.
"Ve do not believe that a majority of
the farmers are foolish enough to co
operate with the speculators to depress
prict'S further. There is no question but
that prices will take a turn upward in a
few days. We are sending out another
mill on supplements. The Wheat Grow
ers' association just organized is co-operating
with us. The secretary, ex-President
Hall, is in tbe field dow working this."
A Railway Tiew of the Matter.
The railway officials in the general office
of tbe Northwestern lines say that, so far
as ttey can tell, the several circulars that
have been issued by different authorities
of tbe Farmers Alliance to the farmers in
structing them to hold their wheat are
-havii.g little effect. In Kansas and Iowa,
where tbe farmers are more independent
financially, it is thought that they will be
influenced somewhat to bold their grain,
but in the Dakotas and western and
nortl western Minnesota poor crops in re
cent years have made it impossible for
the ft ruiers to hold on.
. FIGHT AGAINST THE POOL ROOMS.
The Merry War That Horseman bwyer
Xew York. Sept. 15. The battle be
tween tbe Brooklyn Jockey club and the
city pjol rooms b-gan in earnest yester
day. The association erected high fences
ail aruud tbe Gravesend. track, so as to
shut out the view which was formally
bad fiom tbe tops of the surrounding
houses. The pool room men, however,
rose i o the occasion, and erected on the
top of the highest of these buildings a
tower from which they could look over
the fences into tbe track. To-day Dwyer
will p. ay his trump card, and the pool
rooms may as well give up the fight. He
intends to withhold all entries from tbe
newspjpers. Tbis will hurt the atten
dance somewhat, but President Dwyer's
aim is to break np the pool rooms, and
tbis la-it step will probably prove effect
ive. All of the pool rooms in this city
were in full blast yesterday, being able by
means of the tower erected near the track
to get the results.
The Fair and the Tari tC Law.
Washington, Sept. 15. The question
of recommending to congress certain
changes in tbe tariff law that obstruct the
free en ry of foreign exhibits intended for
the World's fair, and amending certain
treasuiy regulations applying to the same
law wi 1 be considered at a conference to
be held at tbe treasury department today.
At thii conference there will be, beside
Acting Secretary Spaulding and Assist
ant Secretary Nettleton, representing the
treasury department. Sir Henry Wood
and J: r. James Dredge, representing
Great Lritain; Herr Wermnth, represent
ing Germany, aud Messrs. Butterwortb,
Handy, Peck and MeCormick, represent
ing the World's fair diiectory.
Condemned a Little Faith Curist.
Quebsc, Sept. 15. A mandament from
Cardinal Taschereau was read in tbe
Catholic churches in the city Sunday con
demning the faith manifested by the
French Catholics of the province in the
alleged curative powers of a little girl
who is ceclared to be endowed with super
natural gifts. The mandament says it is
not only ridiculous, but a sin on tbe part
of tbe girl and of believers. But it will
be difficult for his eminence to extirpate
tbe belief of the French Catholics in the
girl's powers as she is said to have effect
ed renia: kabie cures.

A Villainous Witness in the Ferrlen
Case Parrish Confesses Perjury.
Chicago, Sept. 15. A bold attempt was
made to wreck the cannon-ball express on
the Pittsburg, Ft. Wayue and Chicago
railroad last night. Whtn the train was
two miles east of Whiting, Ind , Engineer
Pierson saw an obstruction on the track,
and reversing the eugine and applying the
brakes the engine came to a stop jut as
the pilot pushed its nose against a barrier
of railroad ties. While the passengers
and trainmen were standing about the en
gine discussing their narrow escape from
death, Charles Howard, of Whiting, aa
employe of the Standard Oil company,
came running up and said he knew all
about the attempt to wreck the train.
"Tl;ere were live of them." Howard said,
excitedly, "ai.d it was their intension to
wreck the trin and then rob the expre
messengers and tbe passengers."
Heliev d To lie a Fairy Story,
Howard t'len told how he met the five
men at Whiting during the afternoon aod
that they i::vited him to walk dog n the
Pittsburg, F'. Wayne and Chicago tracks
after unrknes had set in. It was about
7:30 o'clock when the party reached the
spot where the ties were placed on the
track. Howard says that all of the mm
were armed, and, pointing their revolvers
at him. they compelled him to aid in put
ting the timbers across the rails. Heat
tempted to run away and warn the train
men, when the robbers threatened to shoot
him if he moved. His story was not be
lieved and he was arrested on suspicion of
being one of the wreckers and brought to
Hon ard Can't I'nderstand Matters.
Nothing is known against Howard's
reputation, and he was very indignant
when the officers made him step into a pa
trol wagon and be driven to tbe station.
"I don't see why I should be locked up as
a thief," said Howard to the police. "I
tried my best to warn the engineer of the
danger ahead of him, and they throw me
Into a cell for my trouble." South Chi
cago officers, ass-isted by trainmen and
railway detectives, searched through the
Indiana swamps all night for tbe despera
does.' Farmers and their sons turned out
with shotguns and big horse-pistols, some
of them rusty with age, in the huLt for
the train wreckers.

Detroit, Sept. 15. Frank Parrish, who
was brought here last week from St.
Louis as a very important witness in the
Perrien abduction case, wrote a letter
Sunday to John Considine, one of tbe al
leged abductors, stating that he (Parrish)
had lied on the witness stand when im
plicating Considine, because he hoped to
get $700 from Perrien for testifying
against Considine. Parrish has been
shown up in several ways to be a pretty
hard character. It is believed that he has

hearing of Miss Millie PfatTman was set

entered the court room Juvenal thrust
his right hand into his vest and drew a
dagger and leaped at Hale, Before he
could do anv harm, however, Juvenal was
