, Despite tho precautions taken by the Ro-
j publican Olub Contention in Chtokering
Hall to avoid all consideration of can-
dldntes, for 1888, and for the promotion
of bnrinony in the great work which the
clubs proposo to do the salvation of
the Gone Out Party the contest between
j Blaino, of Maine, and Bhorman, of Ohio,
,' fairly and distinctly outlined itself.
Blaine and Bhorman could not bo kept out
of the conflicting minds of any Catherine of
Republicans nny more than Air. Dick could
keep the head of Charles I. out of his " mo
mofrs." The selection of a temporary President
brought it about, dospito the efforts of the
managers of this love-feast.
The committee did nicely. Recognizing
ithat barring his own remotely possible can
didacy, Senator Evarts, who was about
agreed upon for permanent chairman, is a
" Blaine man," thoy amicably balanced that
seeming boom for James Q. by naming Daniel
J. Ryan, President of tho Republican State
League from Sherman's own commonwealth,
for temporary Chairman.
Tho only other candidate that hod been
thought of was a Miohlgandor, Col. John
Atkinson. But he wouldn't do, borause his
scloction would mako tho convontion look
very side hIIHbU for Blaine.
All thi was very pretty and brotherly, but
when Mr. Ryan's name was announced to tho
convention there was an uproar. Tho unex

CAUCUSING LAST NIOHT.
Evidently Mr. Sherman's friends felt the
sting anc realized that the convention was
not particularly in the interest of their
leader at least, and, ob a result, thero was
much indignant caucusing among the adher
ents of Sherman last night, and loud threats
'wore made that they would bolt Evarts for
Permanent Chairman to-day.
The line between the Blaine men and the
I Sherman men is distinctly drawn to-day, and
it would require but vory little rubbing of
tho hair tho wrong way to get up a urst-rato
fight between the two factions.
THODBLE OVER THE RESOLUTIONS.
The fight came up again unexpectedly last
evening at the meeting of the Committee on
Resolutions at the Republican Club in
John A. KasHon, of Iowa, who is set down
as a Blaino man, was selected for Chairman
Sf tho committee, but when "Joe" Mauley,
ilaine'fl right bower, emboldened by this
seeming victory, insisted that Blaine's viows
bn the tariff question, as expressed in his
Paris lnterviow on Presidont Cleveland's
message, be adopted bodily as tho senBo of
the convention, he was met by an opposition
; Unlooked for by tho Sherman men.
The Ohio men advocated the adoption of a
' set of platitudes meaning nothing and strad
dling tho question completely.
The opposition was strong enough to refer
the whole matter to a committee of Chairman
Kasson, Editor Emory Smith, of tho Phila
delphia Pre$s, Col. John Atkinson. N. D.
Sporry, of Connecticut, and Congressman
llouck, of Tennessee.
E., H. Alger, of Michigan, was chosen

Committee, Benator William E. Chandler of

The Committee on Resolutions had another
hard tussle over the attempt to say something
definite on the saloon question. Col. Manley

left In abeyance
NIW TOBK DELWUTM SQUADBLIWO.
PrpviouB to tho reassembling of tho con-
i Tontlon the delegates from this Stato held a
xath6r stormy caucus in tho gallery.
Mr. L. T. Hrackott, who is a member of tho
Saqhlne Btato Committee from tho Saratoga
istrict. presided. The representatives of
the various clubs throughout tho State de
sired to havo a meeting.
" We should get together for the purpose
of coming to some conclusion about voting
as a unit or othorwlse," shouted a Herkimer
"That's bo; that's bo," chorused fifty dele
gates. A motion wfis made that tho New York del-

ottrnment of tho morning session.
Ex-Alderman James W. Uawes offerodan
amendment. He wantod tho mooting to take
plaoe at S o'clook this afternoon.
About a dozon delegates tried to get the at

greifcted with laughter.
, " fit i ooaTfciat to this hall," continued
the Aldermau, " that is tho only reason I

The rural delegates, howover, decided
against mooting at Wallace's, oud it was
opreod to hold tho caucus at tho rooms of the
Thirteenth ABRcmhlv District Republican
Club in the Grand Opora-Houso Building.
The caucus is to fix up a plan to orgunizo
tho Now York olubs into a Stato League.
TROUBLE IN TIIE KEYSTONE BANES.
For a timo thero was danger of a split in
the big Pennsylvania delegation.
By a mistuko yesterday Mr. Warren, of
Scranton, and Capt. Thornton, of Philadel

Mr. Warren claimed that it was distinctly

official list of clubs represented in the Con

At the closo of tho call, Judge King, of

But Judgo King proceeded to read a list of
the Ohio clubs. At the mention of the For

a great deal of noise, and it looked as if per

they might be.

Mr. Evarls's namo was greeted with great
applauso, Ho was escorted to tho Spoukor's
desk by ex. Gov. Algor. of Michigan, and
Mr. Jnmes P. Foster, President of tho Re
publican Club of this city.
It was somo minutes boforo Mr. Evarts
could begin his kpoocu. The delegates gavo
him a roUBing welcome and ho kept nodding
his head. He spoko for an hour.
His address whB a regular Republican cam.
puigu spcoch and his stylo and oratory did
not evoko too much enthusiasm. Towards
tho cIoro of his remarks many of tho dele
gates became tired aud loft thoir seats.
Ho occasionally stirred up his audienco,
especially when "ho reforred to tho alleged
ballot-box frauds in tho South and tho pro
taction of Amerioan industries.
His remnrks against free trade and tho con
tinuance of a Democratic Administration mot
with thu most favor.
Mr. Evarts began by saying that tho form,
ation of Republican clubs and tho organiza.
Hon of leagues or clubs injtho vaious States
would not intorfero with tho established
machinery of tho Republican party.
Ho alluded to tho call for tho convention
and thu understanding that thu convention
would not recommend or namo any candi
date for the Presidential nomination.
Tho party, ho said, wai greater and bettor
than any candidate who could bo mentioned
or nominated. It was now tho habit of tho
Democratic party to pride itnolf on nominat
ing a candidato hotter than his porty.
Mr. Evarts gave the Mugwumps a rub by
reforriug to people who wore deluded
threo years ago, and who helped to elect tho
Democratic candidate." The illusion that
led men to vote for tho Democratic candidato
had passed away, ho declared.
The peoplo of the United States oould not
bo fooled a second timo.
the noire In 1888.
In referring to tho Presidential contest of
1888 Mr. Evarts captured the convention by
saying! "Our party t has never had a
candidate and nover will have a candidate
for President who is hostile to any of tho
great interests of the country."
He then branched off into an attack on tho
Democratic party as responsible for alleged
suppression of the suffrage in the Southern
States. He charged that free and honest BUf .
rage was unknown in tbe South and claimed
that the votes of the colored peoplo wero not
" Crimo against suffrngo," he said, "is a
crime ngainbt tho majesty of tho nation. You
and I havo tho right to havo every vote in the
Soutbora States counted."
Ho averred that elections in Georgia and
Mississippi wero mero farces.
THE TAEIFF QUESTION.
Mr. Evarts was listened to closely when he
touched the tariff question. He arraigned
President Cleveland for his recent message
and said that tho Democratic President and
and the Democratic party were opposed to
tho protection of American industries.
If the tariff lawB wero to bo changed, tho
peoplo ot tho United States would prefer the
change to be made by a protection party.
" As a last word "and Mr. Evarts was pro
vented from continuing by a round of ap
plause. He remained silent for a few sec
onds. "Go on," " Go on," came from the
"tireen Good" 3Ien In Court.

keeper at Ci)9 Greenwich streot.
On the night of tho assault he was shutting
up shop when Byrnos ranie along and stum,

Whalen Mas stabbed in tho abdomen.
Byrnes is quite a able-bodied fallow, short
of stature, with sharp features mid pleasant
face. Ho has but rocently been rolcased from
prison wliero ho was serving time for stabbing
n mati. Yesterday was devoted to tho prone
cution and to-day tho dofenso presented its
argument and evidence.
Ex-Assemblyman House mado the opening
argument for tho defense. Ho clnlined that
the wound inflicted by thn prisonor was mado
in self-defenso mid that deuth Mas tho result,
not of the wound but of careless nurMug,
which engendered serious complications.
Evidence is still being heard.
Dr. Thnddcus J. heau. who nttondod tho

Tho oliango of fighting-ground, which oc

nnd it thoroforo hurt him more to bo thrown.
Johnny thinks that if tho fight had boon

havo been obliged to fight, and could not
have resorted to wrestling.

Menibors of tho American Jockey Club urn
in a stato of anything but mild excitement
over the resignation of Banker August Bel
nioiit as President nnd Director, and the Im
pending resignations of Judgo Alonzo C.
Mdtison, Treasurer, and L. L. Withers, di
rector. Tho mooting at which President Bolmnnt
resigned was hold ou Weduosdiiy evening at
tho club-room on Madison iivenuo. Tho pro
ceedings woro unusually animated, hut much
rctlccnco la maintained as to what was dono
It is known, howover, that August Ilol
inont, Alonzo 0. Monsou, William A. Duor,
Leonard V. Jcrotno and John Hunter were
elected directors, aud that In conseqiignco of
what subsequently happened Mr. Belmont
Iiromptly tendered biB resignation, .ludgo
ilonsou and Mr. 'Witters also threatened to
r. August Belmont was found by a
Worn.') reporter in his Wall street office this
" It is truo I havo resigned tho Prosldency
of tho American Jockoy Club whloh I havo
held for tho past twenty-two years," ho said.
"It is also truo that owing to tho coimiosi.
tion of tho now Board of Directors Judgo
Monson, who has been treasurer sinco the
club was form oil, may also hao to retire.
" I wish to say that I appointed tho present
diroctors myself under a proxy which I held
as President of thn club. All tho fivo wero
members of tho old board except Mr. William
A. Duer, who was appoiniod in the placo of
his deceased father-in-law, William It.
" Tho reason why I resigned is that the
Jeromo Park Villa Bido Association, of
whom tho American Jookoy Club lenses
Jeromo Park, had for somo time past urged
upon mo their desiro and determination
to have a now Treasurer in tho plaoe
of Judgo Monson, aud as I thought that this
was nn unkind and ungenerous treatment
of Judgo Monson, I would not consent to his
being forced out.
" Mr. Monson hnd cived his sorvicos for
over twenty yoars to tho American Jockoy
Club without pay, and without him I do not
think the olub would have been ablo to live
through tho law against betting on the race
course, which was enforced against that club
while betting was permitted at tho Conoy
Island, Saratoga and othor raco-coursos in tho
" Tho Villa Bido gontlomen said Judge
Munsou was not conciliatory and amiable
enough aud soemod determined to overthrow
him. Mr. Loonard Jqromo, Mr. Hunter and
Mr. William A. Duor now form a majority of
the directorate against Judge Monson, and
.1 hear tJiat rtnWrillT-jttlgn,., 1 think Mr.
" I do notRw who will be the new Pros
idont or the'fw Treasurer. It will bo hard
for them to dit as good a Treasurer as Mr.
Monson has been."
Mr. Leonard Jerome Is In Europe, and nt
Mr. Withers' house Tna Wortm reporter
as told that gentleman was also out of town,
Mr. William A. Duor was seen at his ofilco
in the Boroel Building. He was very non
committal in regard to the olub difficulty,
and said ho did not want to bo interviewed.
When Mr. Belmont's statement was read to
him, however, ho denied having any personal
feeling against Judgo Monson. That gentlo
man had been a good Treasurer, but ho had
held the office twenty-threo years and a
change was felt to bo necessary.
He regretted Mr. August Bolmont's retire
ment but said that gentleman seemed to want
to go, and ho knew his own mind best. He
did not know who would bo elected President
and Treasurer in place of the retiring officers.
No mention of Mr. Belmont's offered resig
nation appears on the club minutes ot Wednes
day's meeting, and it is said that efforts are
being made to induco Mr. Bolmont to with
