Xk-v Voi;k, Feb. 12. The maR meeting
of Dcniocrats, called to protest against the
early state c 11 vent ion to name delettat'-s
to the national -convent-ion, drew together
a crowd last ni-iit, that filled the Cooper
Vniun to overflowing, liefore 8 o'cliw-k
there was not an inch of space left on the
platform or in the ball It was an enthu
siast io crowd, too, and every point made
by speakers against the state committee'i
action va pvcinl with hand-clapping and
shouts t.f applause. Directly- behind the
speakers' rostrum, lingering in the sbadu-v
of a colum.was Wilson Hissell, of Buffalo,
taking a quiet satisfaction in the enthusi
asm, of the meeting.

The feathering Begins Business.
Fromptly at S o'clock Oswald Ottcndor
fer pounded with the gavel on the speak
er's desk and called the nieetini? to order,
and made a brief speech nominating
Frederick K. C'oudert to le chairman,
syui that tho protest to be entered at
this meeting was nut in the interest nt any
man or any clique, lie hoped the Demo
cratic state committee would retrace its
steps; if not, it would have to taVe the
responsibility for "the disastrous conse
quences of its unwise action." He then
nominated, a a man who was entitled to lie
called a Democrat for better reasons than
using the phrase 'l am a Democrat," for
chairman of the meeting. Frederick 1!.
Remarks of Chairman Coudert.
Mr. Coudert, as he rose, was grated
with loud applause, which he gracefully
acknowledged. When quiet had been re
stored he said: '-In the first place 1 would
say that every departure from usage and
cubtom requires an explanation on the
part of those who make the departure.
Custom is the law. To violate the law is
crime. The burden is upon those whose
conduct is questioned, and not upon those
who object. We therefore are in the right,
and may insist upon receiving a valid ex
planation. With us custom is king. It
rules judges and courts, and parties and
commerce, and we can scarcely be deemed
bold if we ask: 'Show your warrant to vio
late this law. '"
The Resolutions Summarized.
Stephen A. Walker then read the resolu
tions. The pith of them is a protest
against calling the state convention to se
lect delegates to the rational convention
so early as Feb. ass. The reasons urged
against the action was that soearty astute
convention leaves no time for the citizens
to canvass the situation properly and se
lect the right kind of men for delegates;
also that no body of men should lie made
the custodions of the people's will
any longer than possible, for
which reason delegates to tie
national conventional shotil-.rbe chosen nt
a later r-::'e as near the time of meeting
of thai convention as possible, in fact, so
that they may come fresh from the people;
that generally this eariy convention is cal
culated to limit and embarrass a genuine
expression of party feeling, and that such
an early date is unprecedented. The state
committee is called to account for its ac
tion, a copy of the.se resolutions is directed
to be sent to the committee., and a commit
tee of fifty is provided for to iprotest di
rectly to the state committee against the
action complained of, ami to take such
other action as shall make things satis

The reading of the resolutions was
punctuated with applause and at the con
clusion of the reading they were adopted
with a resounding "aye," which was fol
lowed by a few scattering uoe. John G.
Millburn, of Buffalo, took the stand, he
said: "I have come here tonight to assure
you that the genuine Democracy of west
ern Xew York is with you in this move
ment." He declared they were ready to
Join in any measure adopted uto preserve
the right of the Democratic masses to rep
resentation at the national convention and
to prevent its usurpation by the cunning
politician who is himself a candidate." He
arraigned Senator Hill's administration
and said be failed to see anything deep or
courageous in the call for a February con
vention. EX-SECRETARY FAIRCHILD SPEAKS.
He Will Stand by Ihe Movement to th
Last Other Speeches.
Ex-Secretary of the Treasury F&ircbild,
followed Mr. Millburn. He said: "We
believe that both our party and our princi
ples are in peril. We believe that great
numbers of Democrats, both in state and
nation, feel this peril, and therefore that
we would be cravens and cowards did we
not do our utmost -to give an outlet to the
deep feeling which we know to exist, and
which has been repressed by every device
known to official power and party ma
chinery. We ask and hope for no reward
save the approval and the gratitude of
those who in the years to come shall be

Denonni ed as an Outrage.
Ex-United States Revenue CoIlctot
Wux. A. Bench, of Syracuse, after com
menting on tho huge m-ichine and the
political organization at the head of
which was oenator Hill, said: "Senatoi
Hill's action on the face of it is an out
rage. It is a gross and damnable outrage
end what excuse do they offer for it J
What principle do they seek to establish
by reason of it? The first and greatest
reason, I suppose, is that Mr. Murphy is
about to take a vacation, and he wanted
he affair of the convention off his hands
before he went away."
1 hey Cheered for Cleveland.
Mr E K'.lery Anderson was the last
speaker. He said that the call for a state
convention in February was certainly a
departure from usage and precedent. The
people should speak their minds freely an j
know where they stand. This knowledge
t-hould pass to the conventions in sistet
states, and to the national convention
which is to lie held in Chicago next June.
At the conclusion of Mr. Anderson's
si-eech the meeting adjourned and afu-r
three cheers for Cleveland, the ba:id piayed
aiiil the audience left for home. During
the meeting every reference to Cleveland
was c-nthu.-ia-ticallv cheered.
JOHN V. THURSTON'S VIEWS.
II Thinks Republicans Should Trepar
lor a stubborn Fight.
Omaha, Feb. 12. Hon. John M. Thurs
ton, in speaking of political events yester
day, said: "Mr. Blaine's letter of itself
would not take him out of the presidential
race, bc-cuuc the party always has a right
to nominate a man whether he seeks the
nomination or not; but 1 am very sorry tc
say I believe that Mr. Blaine's letter is
written 011 account of his ill health, and if
so. of course it is (hial. I think Mr. Blaine
was the only man whom tne Kcpubiic&n,
party could have surely i-lectcd.
No ?lan Can Foretell the Result.
"Xi'w that, be is out of the raVe, Mr
Harrison will probably be renominated.
With Mr. Harrison at the bead of the
Republican ticket, in my judgment, the
contest w ill be most stubbornly fought,
by both parties, and no man cau foretell
the result. Any one who declares that the
Republican party is sure to win is makiug
a very foolish statement, and Republicans
might just as well look the situation in
the face and lx- ready to make every effort
to carry the ticket through.
Co 11 lit Blaine Split the Alliance?
All these prairie states have been Blaine
states for many years. A large part of
the Alliance men are favorable to his reci
procity ideas and they look upon biin as a
great leader, whose statesmanship would
le exerted for the interest of the agricul
tural west. I think his nomination would
split the Alliance in two, as far as the
presidential ticket is concerned. Xo other
candidate could do so to the same extent.
Would Only Run with Blaine.
"I am not end have not Iteen a candidate
for the vice presidency. If Mr. Blaine had
been nominated a western man would
have been put on the ticket. Whatever I
might have been willing to do in a possi
ble contingency arising from Blaine's
nomination, I would not accept the mon
ination for vice president, if I could have
it, on the ticket with any other man."

proposed to open the Panama canal the
scheme was strongly opposed on the
ground that it wottld'endanger millions of

the Pacific ere more than 100 feet higher
than those of the Atlantic, and that if they
got headway in the ditch they would
drown the country all around on the At

of the two, and that the difference Is about
