Syracuse, X Y.. Dec. 4 County Clerk
Cottou whs removed yesterday by Gov
ernor Hill's order, and the ofliee is now
in tlie bands of John J. llallock. The re
moval was unt Hitos;.'!liiT unexpected, but
it came like a sheik, nevertheless, and
Democrats and l;ei.tiblic;inssecnied equal
ly furpi is.d. Not bins else is talked about,
and the governor's ac ion is ven criti
cised by snif Democrats. In view of the
develr.pmtnents of tbe past few dtiy's, in
cluding Jus. ice Morgan J. OT.rien's ap
pointment to come here and hold an ex
traordinary special term of court, Mr.
Cotton's removal bad almost ceased to be
The (ioTcrnoi'i Action lore-stalled.
The certificate of election for Kyan,
Democrat, lor assembly in the First dis
trict, signed only by the D -m)cratic chair
man of the hoard of canvassers, is in the
hands of Justice Kennedy, and it was put
therein anticipation of the very action
that the povernor has taken. This fact of
itself is tnouuh to tie the hnndsof the new
county clerk, for the time Win.; at least.
Besides, he had scarcely tnken poses-,ion
of the ofTce when be was served with
copy of the original mandamus iu :he
Rynn-Munro cise, which prohibits him
from attaching bis na:ne to any other
certificate tnat may be presented for his
sign at n re.
Hallnek Ha. a llsrt Rrrnnl,
Mr. Cotton has a host, of Democratic
friends, personal and political, who sin
cerely (lf)(.re his removal. Hut aside
from all that the governor's selection of
Mr. Ilallocfc to succeed htm is widely re
garded as unfortunate. It Is only eight
years ao that Mr. Itallock was indicted
here for destroying public records, those
records being on tile in the very office of
"is uow if n put in charge.
The Indictment, however, was demurred
to and was foine time afteiward
missed. It is an interesting fact that the
Mwyer wuom ne retained to defend him at
that time was W. I Goodell, who is now
1 lie foremost champion of the Republic
ans iu the present strife.
Hill Was Probably Not fouled.
Xotody l.ere be)ieve ihit the governor
a.s HiiiHinrei wun ualloc ks record, bnt
among It -publicans, aside from their
regret over .Mr. Cotton's removal, there ia
almost a feeling of jubilation over the
new appointment, which, they take it,
means a big triumph for them at the
approaching charter election. Mr. Cotton
took his removal quietly, and made not
theieast objection to Mr. Hallock taking
possession of the office Immediately. There
was a prospect of some difficulty among
the employes, but the trouble whs smoothed
over, for the day at least.
DOINGS OF THE STATE BOARD.
A Proposition That It Ailjonrn Dally fn
til Litigation I. Knrfed.
ALBANY, Dec. 4 When the state board
of canvassers met yesterday the rooms of
the secretary of state were crowded with
distinguished lawyers, and it was il:30
o'clock when the board convened. Can
didate for Attorney General Sutherland
served two orders upon the board, both
from Judge Landon, the one calling the
state board to appear on Saturday morn
ing at Hudson before Judge Edwards to
show cause why the state board should
not issue a certificate to Derby, of Rens
selaer, and in the meantime restraining
the board from granting the certificate to
Candidate Ccllins. The other was a sim
ilar order in the case of Senator-Elect
Peck, calling for a similar appearance.
Trying to Acres on a Plan.
When the board had received this, Sec
retary of State Rice said that the board
had decided to adjourn from day to day
until the various counsels had agreed on
some defiuite plan of nction provided
that plan was legal. The Republican and
Democratic counsel at once went into
session and selected the following repre
sentatives to bold discussion upon the
matter of submission to the court: Demo
crats Gilbert, Griffin and Whitman; Re
publicans Cady. Sutherland and Bnr
lingame. The selected committee then
went into secret session in one of the as
sembly committee rooms.
Hie Questions Invulveil.
At 2 o'clock the committee adjourned,
and Mr. Griiliu said: "We ui!j mrned so as
to allow the board of canvassers to con
sult counsel and find out whether tbey
can sit, after four days. If it is decided
they cannot, then the negotiations ni'ist
rense, liecause the court cannot handle it
in five days. If they deuide that the board
cau sit, then the committee will proceed
10 arrange a plan of act inn."
Another Man To lie Itonnreil.
Charges ngnint Iloffiitnti, county clerk
of Duchess county, were fUd with Gov
ernor Hfll yes.erday. They were pre
sented by the chairman of the board of
supervisors of that county, and relate to
Huffman's conduct iu refusing to attest
and countersign the official action of the
canvassing bonrd. An order was issned
requiring the clerk to show cause why be
should not be removed from office, return
able at Albany, Die, 5, at 11 a. in.

of Willard Ellis, who hasa farm of ninety

on the kitchen floor and Mrs. Ellis, who
was in nn adjoining room, ran to his as

an ordinary farm baud of little education
