Nxw Yonc, Oct. 81.-Against the protests of many decent republicans the general direction of Mr. Harrison's campaign has been 1 laced in the hands of "Matt" Quay, the notorious ex-chairman whose manipu lation of voters and judieUoue expenditure of the corruption fund resulted in the ele> tion of Mr. Harrison four years ago. White decent republicans protest, the national committee, which evidently be lieves that the knowledge that Quay is at the helm will attract a class of voters who reared advantage from his managment in 1888, is making visible efforts to advertise Quay's p ominence ina committee affairs just at this time. Quay was at the Harrisan headqnarters for five hours yesterday, in consultation with nearly every member of the committee there, and apparently was regarded as the highest authority in the camp. He talked with the visitors who came from doubtful states to lay before the committee their prayers for help. He listened to the enthu piactic returning stump orators as they painted glowing pictures of the crowds that had turned out to hear them talk. He was shown the correspondence from many chairmen of state committees in whish the situation was reviewed, not for publication, but to convey to Mr. Carter as nearly as possible the faots in the ease. He looked over the reports of registration in the doubtful states and scanned the estimates of the strength of the two parties, as they hlid been made up by house-to-house can vasees. He examined the probabilities of gaining strength by fusion in two or three southern and western states, and be gave particular attention to the finances of the committee. The books, which have been kept away from eve body's eye, except those of Treasurer lilis. Mr. Carter and Mr. Clark son, were at Mr. Quay's disposal, for the committee regards his advice on no point more than for the disposition of the cash. In short, Mr. Quay, who was said to be in' New Yo k "for his health" was yesterday one of the hardest-worked politicians in the city. At evening he was able to go out for a dinner with Senator Cameron. 'lhre is considerable, dissatisfaction on the part of Chairman Carter's friends at the p ominence which Mr. Quay is allowed to assume in the committee. They protest that Quav's irresence at headquarters will do more harm thlan good, even if he were not given much prominence in the work. But this Is not their only grievance. They say that the appearance on the scene of Mr. Quav is doing great injustice to Mr. Cater. They point out that Quay will be in a position after election to put Mr. Car ter in an unenviable predicament. If Mr. Harrison is elected. Quay will have been at headquarters just long enough, and have had just enough to do with the manage ment of the campaign toallow him to claim the glory of it all. This will be made doubly easy for Quay in view of the promi nence which the others of the committee are willing to give the ex-chairman. On the other hand, should Mr. Harrison be de fteated, Mr. Quay may wash his hands of the whole matter and put the responsibility on Mr. Carter. No one believes that Quay "cares a cent" for Mr. Harrison personally. In fact, he is known to have a good hearty hatred for him, but it is, of course, to Mr. Quay's per sonal intereits to see him party succeed. If he cinud secure some additional prestige by causing it to appear that he had an imtpor tant I art in electing him. he would not be slow to grasp that prestige. Mr. Carter's t lends are pretty well stirred niu ove this little matter, and they say thas Quay's presenoce here may be an important e.ement in the i oat election politics if Pree idert H r neon is re-elected. They insist that Mr. Carter should be allowed to have the elory and. rewa de that will come to him if he makes a winning fight, without dividing tilhe honors with the ex-ohairnian. These protests from Mr. Carter's friends are of little avail with the committee. The committee is desperate and is willing to give Quay full awing over Mr. Carter if there is a point to be gained. Mr. Ca :tr ait the outset was willing to divide the responsibility with Quay, for he found there were points in the caimpigi which he could not cover. The canmpaign wits too large for him. He asked Quay for assistance. and the ex-ahairman at once insisatd on becoming teamster on the ice wagon. Mr. Quay went from room to room yes terday at headquarters as if he were the proprietor. It was reported to him that the iegestration of the state had been larger than had ,been exuected. The re puallictn lenaleor expect to gain 15),000 votes rover the egistratin,, of last pear, and Mr. QIUay is wrndhring just what murthods should be adoptid to bring the number up to that fiIrre. Hlie reiterated his opinion yesterday that the details of the work in this state should be left largely to the state committee, arid he took occlsion to deny a statem·nt published in one of the mon.Itug ptalers that he had given upNew York state. Mr. Qnny said ie still believed there was fighting ground here. Mr. Quay has had no attack of vertiro situe he oalre to tin city, and his general hLnlth is such that he does not ex, cot to I visit a physician while he ils here. He has Sbeen devirtinrg about all of his energies to tht camnpaign, and an oflicial bulletin issooue last night by the national committee said that he was expected to be at headquarteis agRailn to-dlny. Mr. Quay finds Mr. Clarkson a congenial Ispirit it thire headquaterre building., lie hse seen little of trim since ther were at Mitnnapulise predictamn that Mr. Harrison would not be nominated, atid if nominated wilrid ntot be elected. When they are not tor, busy at headqularters they may get somte satisfaction biy goiirg over those days behind tiets doors of Mr. Clarkson' s room. Thlnkt IJustlont laitffoctlt. Cnnriro, Oct. 31.--11. W. Seott, of the Oregonian, of Pl'ortland, Ore.. who is in the city. said to-day that there is a snarl in the preparations for election in Oregon that is likely to bring dcmfltture t to the demo crats and popll.trs. An attemopt was made biy them to form a fusion ticket, the idea beilrg to withdraw two democratic and two proullst electors. and ulnite on the same number of electors of the two parties, and thus, if ptosIsible, defeat the republican electorial tcket. T'he law in Oregon, how ever, proviries that all acmiunstions mast be flied with the oeretary of state and clerks of the respective countles at least fifteen days beoire the election. rihis attem t at furion wle made too late, as it is much less than fifteen days th the election. The eon .eiruentu in theit the denuUorate and popu lists were not able to geot together upon any leIal ticket or back to the orWIginal condl. tidns. Thesdemoorate may vote for their own electors, but cannot vote for the pop uliet electors, and the populists may vote for their own but not for the demoorats. Thereis, in short, no way to combine the tickets. To lBegunle the Voter.

The offenses charged are sending letters soliciting government clerks in the city. The documents are forwarded in each case. The letters specify no sum, but ask the recipient to forward such amount as he may choose toward the legitimate exnenses of the campaign. Attorney General Miller, when ques- I tioned on the subject this afternoon, said i he had just received the ,auers mn the ease and had not had time to examine them.

Peter Jackson wes present and was cheered to the echo as he entered a private box, At 10 o'clock Choynski, Godfrey and their attendants entered the ring and after the usual preliminaries, at 10:10 o'clock, the men stepped to thq center and began to spar.

Godfrey landed four stingers on Choynski's damaged optic, rushing him all over the ring. In the seventh both men did clever work, Godfrey getting in some telling blots, Choynski evading punishment by clinching. The Californian planted heavy blows on his mo'ti and stomach. ightth. Choynski landed on the stomach, Godfrey responding with a right swing, which brought the Californian to his knees. The latter then chased Godfrey all over the ring, landing clean left and right. 'Ihe ninth was mostly spar ing for wind, though Choynski made the colored man winch with several hard blows on the stomach. In the tenth Godfrey again landed hear ily on Choynski's suffering eye. following pith a hard ci perant, the latter responding with a right hand swing, forcing Godfrey's head back. Rounds eleven and twelve were unevent ful. Just as time was called at'the end of the twelfth, Godfrey sent Choynski to the floor with a clean knock-down. Thirteenth.

One Held the Gun on Him While the Other Did the Searching. The Affair Occurred but a Short Distance From the Scene or lligihwaymaa Clark's First Exploit. Joseph Weinstein, who lives on Davis street, while on his way home abhout 12:30 thbis (Tuesday) morning, was held up by two raen on Ewing street, opposite the Temple Emanu-EI, and relieved of a valu able gold watch and cbain worth over $100. Mr. Weinstein had gone from the store as 8ixth avenue and Main street In company with his brother to the latter's home on Eleventh avenue near St, Peter's hospital. After leaving his brother's house Mr. Weinstein went up Eleventh avenue to Ewing street, and turned into the latter thoroughfare to go south to Eighth avenue and thence to Davis street. He had gone a little over one block and had just stepped on to the sidewalk at the vacant lot opposite the temple when he saw two men coming toward him. There was nothing in their actions to excite suspicion and hoe continued on his way toward them. Just as he and the two men came near each other, one of the men suddenly pushed a revolver against Mr. Weinstein's breast and said in a low but distinct tone: "Hold up your hands!" Mr. Weinstein complied with the order. The man with the gun kept the weapon in the same position against Mr. Weinstein's breast, while his companion got around be hind the victim and In that rosition went through his pookets. No money was found, Mr. Weinstein not having any with him. He had on his gold watch and chain, how ever, and this the robber took. When the footpads had thoroughly searched Mr. Weinstein the man with the I gun ordered him "to go on now and don't say anything." Mr. Weinstein started up - Ewing street while the robbers went in the opposite direction. He had not gone far when he saw a man in a b iggv, and running up to him, hurriedly explained what had r taken place. The occupant of the buggy told Mr. Weinstein to get in, which he did, and the horse was driven rapidly down town, where the police were notified. A fairly good description of the men was fur nished the police by Mr. Weinstein. He avse one of the men was laRge and the other small. It was the smaller man who held the gun on him and the larger man who got behind him and went through his t pockets. hergeant Callahan, as soon as informed of the affair, located all his available po licemen at such points as he thought would best serve to prevent the highwaymen get ting out of town. It is not likely they can escape. The hold up occurred on the same street where Highwayman Clark made his first haul about a year and a half ago, and within about three block of the very spot. By a singular coincidence, Clark also got a gold watch and chain, though he got some money as well. He is now serving out a forty years' sentence at Deer Lodge. It was learned at an early hour this morn ing that during yesterday at ernoon two men bought a revolver and some cartridges at a pawn store on Main street. They were - evidently pretty hard up, as it took all both men had to pay for the weapon, ex cept 10 cents, which they spent for ext a cartridges. This left them without a cent. The keeper of the store says the men t struck him as being pretty desperate look ing characters. One was a large man and the other a small man. THE CASTLE RAILROAD. Gayov.
