Xsw York, Oct. 1. Ex-President Cleve
land arrived in the city yesterday morning
from Burwird's Bay on the steamer Pil
grim. About 300 people were on the pier
to receive him. Cleveland was accom
panied by Richard Watson Gilder, editor
of The Century, and Daniel J. Griffin, of
Water-town. The ex-president was hurried
to a carriage in which with Gilder and
Griffin he was driven to the Victoria hotel,
where he will put up during his stay in the
city. Cleveland, when seen later by a re
porter, couW tell nothing about what he
would do while here or how long he would
remain in the city. He could not tell either,
whether he would address the convention
5f Democratic clues on Tuesday next un
til he had first seen the gentlemen in charge
of the affair.
Kept Itusy Seeing Caller.
Senator Hill is in town and it is probable
that the Democratic loaders will make an
eurt to bring Cleveland and Hill together
during their stav in the city. Callers began
to arrive early at the hotel and kept com
ing all day. Most of the members of the
Democratic national campaign committee
were in the city, and all the members of
the state committee arrived iu the after
noon. Nearly all of t hem saw Cleveland
during the day. Shortly ln-fore 10 a. in.
Kx-Mayor Grace called at the hotel and re
mained closeted with Cleveland for fully
an hour. Shortly after the ex -mayor's ar
rival Don M. Dickinson, of the Democratic
national campaign committee, went up to
State Committeemen in Town.
It is understood that the local sitnation
and the proposition to run an independent
lx-al Democratic ticket was discussed. Mr.
Grace, however, when asked by a reporter
if it was true that the conference had rela
tion to the nominating of a third local
ticket, said that the local situation was not
mentioned, adding: "I would not embar
rass Mr. Cleveland by asking him to ex
press an opinion as to a third ticket." Many
members of the state committee are in
town. The committee met at the Hoffman
house last night to nominate a candidate
for the office of chief judge of the court of
Ioent Know About Speaking.
It was stated that the stay of Cleveland
in town would be short, and that he would
return to Buzzard's Bay next week to bring
his family here. Replying to a note of in
quiry sent to him by a reporter of the
United Dress, Cleveland stated that as yet
he had made no arrangement with regard
to making speeches during the present
campaign, lie did not know whether he
would make speeches or not; he might pos
sibly, but no positive arrangements had
lieen made up to the present. He did not
know just how he would employ his time
during his stay here.
Cleveland Decline a Drink.
An incident of the ex-president's trip
down on the llgrim is given thus: "While
seated at thediningtable he was approached
by a waiter who brought him a glass of
wine front a Mrs. Goddard. a Kentucky
lady, who was traveling with her four
daughters. She sent her compliments with
it and expressed a wish for his continued
good health and his success in the cam
paign. The ex-president arose, bowed his
acknowledgments, touched the glass to his
lips, but did not. drink. He asked to be
excused, as he had derided to drink no in
toxicants during the present trouble. The
announcement was greeted with enthusi
majority in the house. Kdward McPher
son and Richard C. Kerens are extremely
sanguine. The purpose is to break into the
Democratic representation from the south,
electing Alliance men if not Republicans,
where-er it is possible, so as to prevent the
Democrats from organizing the next house.
In the Fifty.firs congress the Republicans
had seventeen representatives from the
south. In the present congress they Lave
but four. McPherson figures that they
ca elect twenty-three rCepn tilicans from
the south to the Fifty-third congress. Ke
rens says that four Republicans will lie
elect el in Missouri, and Representative
Houk. of Tennessee, counts on three from

Consnl Johnson. Who Had Worked

Washington. Oct. 1. Among the places
filled yesterday by the president was that
of Edmort Johnson, whose irregularities!
at Kiel, Germany, and fraudulent claims
of wounds as a Vnion soldier have been
noted in these dispatches. It seems that
Johnson was also a slippery politician.
When the Cleveland administration came
into power Johnson was consular agent,
having held position since ISTi
To Cafrh Her Cominir or Voinij.
Shortly after Cleveland's inauguration
Secretary Bayard received jvtper nrginc
the promotion of Consular Agent Johnson
for rendering valuable servic.s to the Re
publican party in the campaign of the pre
vious year. This was followed, by other
nailers from iirominent IVnitHTsN. ;wkin.7
that Johnson le promoted for rendering J
services to the Cleveland cause. From the 1
receiptof those two hatches of rceomir.cii- J

of either Cleveland or lii.iine. and had sent '

CONFERENCES AT THE VICTORIA.
The Democratic Candidate Kept llnsy
I'ntil Late at Night.
Several important conferences were held
with Cleveland at the Victoria hotel yester
day. The national campaign committee,
including llarrity. Dickinson. (Tonnan, Shee
han, Brico, Whitney. Smalley and Quincy,
the only absentees being Senator Iiansom, of
North Carolina; Representative Cable, of
Illinois, and K. C. Wall, of Wisconsin, had
the first consultation, which lasted over
two hours. Immediately after their de
parture a delegation of the New York state
committee arrived and matters pertaining
to the state campaign were discussed. The
chief topic of discussion was the proposed
third ticket of the County Democracy. It
was urgently recommeuded that Cleveland
influence the abrogation of such a measure.
Klcliard Croker in Council.
Cleveland was busy all evening until
midnight. William C. Whitney never left
the room throughout the evening. During
the evening representatives called from the
regular state organization and from those
of that who favored the leaders of the Syr
acuse movement. Richard Croker has
tened over to the Victoria hotel immediate
ly upon the adjournment of the state com
mittee and proceeded to Cleveland's room,
where he remained about half an hour. As
he decended the stairs to depart he en
countered Don M. Dickinson, whom he fol
lowed luick to Cleveland's room.
An Important Statement Promised.
When he again emerged, he was ques
tioned regarding the nature of his hurried
visit. He replied that he had an important
statement to give out, but wished to first
secure Cleveland's permission to make it.
When asked whether he had reference to
any action taken by the state committee,
Croker refused to state. After leaving the
hotel Croker met Murphy and Sheehan,
and it was reported that Senator Hill also
was at the conference. late in the evening
a committee of six representing the state
league of Democratic clubs, were admitted
to Cleveland's apartments.

The Prison In the Norrye Mine Serins to
lie a Sepulelicr,
AsllLANP. Wis., Oct. 1. Through the
long hours Thursday night the work of the
rescuers of the entomlied miners at Norrye
mine progressed. The men were spurred
on to greater efforts by the distinct sound
ing which came from the caved rooms
wherein the eleven men were imprisoned.
About 4 o'clock yesterday morning the
hard work of rescuers was rewardi-d by
hearing a faint voice front within. Work
was then directed toward where the sound
came and at f::f a miner named Abraham
Thompson was found. He was carried to
the shaft bucket and brought to the sur
face from a depth of 4O0 feet.
Went Mud for a Time.
He was at first somewhat dazed, ana
upon In'ing brought to light lufame a rav
ing maniac. But this only las-cl an hour
or two. By the use of si-datives he was
brought to his normal conditio.!. While
underground Thompson was in constant
jicril and dared not move either way. Ho
could not tell of the whercul Mints of his
comrades, only that when last svn by him
they were standing iu tlu first room and
