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situation was reviewed, not for publication,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
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
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

last night by the national committee said
that he was expected to be at headquarteis
agRailn to-dlny.

cers of the state militia for tying him up 1
by the thumbs for cheering the manl who I
tried to kill Frick during the Homestead I

again on the stand, but nothing of impor- I
tante was elicited from him. Private I

said: "If Col. r4treator expects me to take
back what 1 said, he can out me down dead."
P ivate Kent testified that be beard Col.
Streator say: "Don't let him hang long
enough to do any material injury," and he
was at once cut down, Under a ruling of
the court Iams was asked if he intended to
begin suits for civil damages in case of con
viction in this case, and he said he did.
In the afternoon, responding to a ques
tion, Private Kent said Col. Streator stated a
upon Monday night succeeding the day of u
punishment that lams had bettes keep out
of his way, or he would shoot him. it he r
could hit at forty yards. Col. Streator said e
this upon hearing a rumor that Iams in- v
tended to shoot him on sight. John Glad- e
den, the nurse who revived lame, told
about the case. He didn't witness all of
the punishment, as the eight sickened him. r
He spoke to Dr. Grimm after lams recov

WAsmINoTON. Oct. 31.-The civil service
commission has reported to the attorney
general for prosecution under the law
against soliciting political contributions
the case of Samuel Thomas, treasurer of I
the relublican state committee of New
York. 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.
He added that he would investigate the
case himself, but would not act until

fourth, with honors even.
In the fifth Choynski landed his left
twice, and got away with a light return.
Godfrey was delirious and went at his op
ponent like a bull, landing on Chuynski's
eye with terrible force, laying the eye open,
which bled profusely.
Sixth. 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,

Joseph Weinstein Is Stopped by
Two Men on Ewing Street
and Robbed.
One Held the Gun on Him While
the Other Did the
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.

Referring to the political situation, Mr.

best chance of being elected. "But there
has been a great change in the feeling in
the last seven daye,"(continued the gover

a talked with Senators Brice and Gorman,
and they felt sure that Clevelan:d would be
elected. A month ago they were not by

The demrocrts will carry New York just as
sure as the sun wdil Ires Nov. S. 'Ibs tide
is turningi stronigly in Mr. Cleveland's favor
and I do ntot think it cani be turned."
