The democrat ic state committee yesterday afternoon selected Hartford as the place for holding the state convention and Sept. 16 and 17 as the dates. This was, decided by ; a vote of 21 to 11 for New Haven after Congressman Bryan F. Mahan had withdrawn New .Lon don's claim for the convention. The place in the fourteenth district .made vacant ' y the resignation of Judge Edwin S. Thomas of Orange was filled by the election of Alexander E. Lynch, of the same town. - The meeting was a lively orte but it wasn't half so lively as some of the things which happened before the gathering came to order in the Allyn House, this afternoon. For instance, it was reported on reliable authority that Chairman George Forster of the committee had his resignation in his pocket because he feared that an effort to land David E. Fitzgerald of N:w Haven in the chair was going to prove successful. . This was denied by Forster; that is, he said that he had no intention of resigning, but the fact of the matter Is that before the meeting there was a count of noses and 19 out of -the 35 members agreed to vote for Fitzgerald if it came to a fight. It didn't come to a fight, the Fitzgerald men deciding that they wouldn't go after the chairmanship at this time, but Forster's friends had heard of the count and they were scared. Mahan For Governor? All rt wVilrVi cam to show that th little argument over the nomination for United States senator is some ar gument. Forster is one of tne leaders Of the Mahan forces and Fitzgerald insists that GoV. Baldwin is the man who should receive the nomination for the place. As an offset to the report that the Mahan men wanted T3 s 1 xxr n tr take tho nnmlnatlnn for governor again if Mahan wins the senatorsnip, ine amwin men saa this afternoon that Mahan can have the nomination for governor if he promises to be good. , I Tha ailAntion of Hartford sppma tn be a Mahan victory, that is, a victory i 1I, V.

He said it was the only town in the state for a convention, and he guaranteed that if the convention came there the state committee would not b obliged to pay- any onis. xiis motion was , seconded by Chairman Forster, and immediately David E. Fitzgerald said that the wheels of the machine seem .to oe running a miw too smoothly to suit, himr . and he warned the leaders of the organization that It wouldn't be a good thing to let the road-roller run wild. Hare lively. Mtxup. - .-v. Chairman Forster took exception to the remarks of the New Havener and in a minute there was a lively mixup in which the New Haven member told the chairman not to pick him too short or he might be sorry for it. Af ter speeches by the other New Haven members in favor of the Elm City, the vote was taken. The committee decided to separate the offices of secretary and treasurer. Three nominations were made for sec retary E. T. O'Sullivan of Torring ton; P. B. O'Sullivan of Derby, and J. F. ,Dutton of Berlin. Mr. O'Sulli van ' of Derby was named, the other candidates withdrawing. James A. Hynes . of "Waterbury was named as treasurer. Placed on Table. . W. P. Palmer of the Seventeenth district made the suggestion that a cpmmittee of five be named ..from the state central committee to handle the major part of the work, the commit tee to be known as the executive com mittee. After a short discussion the matter was placed on the table and the meting adjourned. Will Not Resign. Chairman Geo. Forster of RockviHe declared emphatically that the that he contemplated resigning tho chairmanship was wholly withour foundation. He asserted that he hid never had any such intention and it was his belief that the report was sent out from, a source unfriendly to hint. Thirty-one ,of thirty-four senatorial districts were represented. Among the number were Congressman Bryan F. Mahan of New London and George M. Landers of New Britain. Kenneth .Wynne, executive secretary, to Gov ernor Baldwin, held the proxy of John F. Downey of Wallingford. NOT TO OPEN BRANCH AT OTTAWA, CANADA DIPLOMATS UNABLE TO REACH POSTS Bank of England Will Make Payments in London Against Gold Deposited i With Canadian Minister of Finance. London, Aug. 12," 12:05 P. M. The Bank of England is not to open a branch at Ottawa, Canada, as had been reported. It is understood!, that the , $10, 000, 000 of specie which'made the voyage almost across the Atlantic and back on board the Kronprinzessin Cecille is to be sent to . Ottawa. The bank of England will make payments in 'London 'against this and other gold which will be deposited with the Canadian minister of finance. The effect of the arrangement will be to provide means of remittance from North America to London with out the necessity of shipping gold across the Atlantic. The plan is said to be capable of extension to other places outside the regiori which now is or may come under control of an enemy. War Prevents Newly Appointed 'Ameri can Representatives From Assuming Charge of Embassies Abroad. Washington, Aug 12. Newly ap pointed American diplomats are ex periencing considerable difficulty in reaching their posts abroad on ac count of the European war. William G. Sharp,' the new ambas sador to France, is still in Washing ton awaiting an opportunity to get to Paris. Pending his arrival Mr. Her rick will continue in charge, and it is intimated that because of his close personal acquaintance ; with, the French officials he will be requested to remain in Paris in the service of the state department even after the ar rival there of Mr. Sharp, while the latter familiarizes himself with the heavy demands of the post at this critical time. George T. Marye. newly appointed ambassador to Russia, also is marooned in his own country as a re sult of the war. He and Mrs. Marye realizing the great difficulty of getting into Russia by the Atlantic rout owing to the presence of the German war fleet in the Baltic, had planned to go by way of thte Pacific ocean and the Siberian railroad. According to news reports, however, the trans Siberia route has been closed to civilians and the railroad has been taken over by the Russian army, which may make that route also im possible. Ira Nelson Morris, the new minister to Sweden, with his wife-and private secretary, were to sail from New Tork today for Stockholm on a Norwegian steamer. It wBl make the voyage by the northern passage, north of Scot land, thus avoiding the mine-strewn waters of the North Sea in the yicinity of the British channel. FOREIGN SHIP BILL RETURNED TO HOUSE FEWER STEERAGE PASSENGERS. Decrease of aoo.060 Noted This Year by Steamship Agents. New York, Aug. 12. The falling off in steerage passengers from abroad for year up to last week as com pared with the same week at a year ago was 300,069 which, according to steamship . agents and contractors, means a. corresponding decrease in the supply for the labor market. Should the war continue any length of, time the impression prevails that unskilled labor will be at a premium for some time to come. Of the immigration to this coun try last year ,mdre than a third came over In the steerage. ' The immigrants represented all nationalities, the greater number coming from those ports in France, England, Germany, Belgium and "Holland which' are now virtuafly closed to commerce. Measure Sent Over From Senate, Where it Was Agreed to Without Roll Call, But Materially Amended. Washington, Aug. 12.- The bill authorizing the president in his dis cretion to admit to American registry foreign ships less than five . years old, was before the house again today for its action. The measure was sent over from the senate, where it had been agreed to without a roll call, but materially amended. One of the amendments adopted by the senate which aroused strong op position was that offered by Senator Cummings, which required American ownership of a majority of the stock of corporations seeking t'j register vessels hereafter acquired. Oppon ents of the amendment, who declare that any such limitation upon the president's discretion would destroy the measure's value as an emerguncy step to meet the situation created by the European war, claim that the pro vision will be stricken out in confer ence between the house and senate. The senate also amended the bill so as to authorize the president in his judgment to admit foreigr built ships to the trade between Atlantic and Pacific and gulf and lake ports. I1SCAPES FROM TOWN FARM. John Hinckey, an inmate of the Town Farm, was given permission to go to New Haven yesterday.
