Saratoga. Aug 27?A flood of delegates to the
ft? -Miran Slat* Convention poured Into Sara
togs to-day. The railroad trains were quadrupled
In sire, and ret when tbe railway cars rolled into
Saratoga they were filled with the delegates and
xhe platforms wore Mack with them. Hundred*
nf Republicans not delegates arrived to BltBlB
the proceedings of the convention. Apparently lt
will be one of the best at tended conventions of the
party ever held in the State. Whnt was especially
noticeable about the gai hering WM the good humor
of every B'TiiMiean and his confidence that th*
Stat* and Nritional Republican ticket will sv?er>
lue Stat*. Great, enthusiasm was manifested
whenever the names of Harrison and Morton were
mentioned There was a general testimony that
the Republican pnrtv hid not been so united in
the State since the davs of the Lincoln campaign
in 1860. Party dissension, the cause largely of
t-arty defeat in recent years, it wns reported had
disappeared. Party harmon:., so essential to (suc?
cess In tie State, wa* revealed hy the fi. ct that
>hcre was only one contest inz delegation before
"he conv.n'icn?tImt from Aibanv County. The
large attendance of the party's leader* also showed
the keen inter* *t taken by all Republicans in the
|B(8IBl campaign A large proportion of the Re?
publican nv-nibc? of the LrgMaturo were present
tither as delegates or spectators.
Karly In th*? day Senator Ili.eoek arrived from
W*88hlngtoa and ex Senator Thomas C. Platt from
N-w-Y?!; A little later Senator W. II Robert?
son and ex-S;-r*ak"r James W Unsted arrived from
<h-lr homes in Westchester County. The trains
from '.Yest^m New-York brought Norman M. Al
len, of Dayton, with a crowd of Republicans of
that portion of the State who favor his nomination
tor Lieutenant-Governor. A train from the - South?
ern Tier" of counties had among ita passengers
F. F Parkhurst, of Bath, who ct-me io Saratoga
to manage the canvass of Judge William Rumsey,
of the Supreme Court, who desires the nomination
for Judge of the Court of Appeals. From Buffalo
there cam" Harvey J. Hurd. William B. Sirrett
and William J Morgan, who In company with
0 G Warren, of " The Buffalo Commercial." and ;
ex-Senator P ll. Ifotflttaa, began making a lively
canvass to nominate Congressman John B. We ncr
tor Li* utcnant-Govemor.
l'ROFFF.Rl.NC. SUPPORT TO MR. MILLER.
All the d.leffatc- soon found thnt Congre.sa Hall
aral the _*_o?_e of the conferences regarding NB*
didatea ami thl part? platform. Here ex-Senator
Warner Miller, thc coning nominee for Governor.
Senator Ilise* .ck. ex-Senator Platt, and all the
candidates tor Lieutenant-Governor, had head?
quarters. The room of ex-Senator Miller was
crowded all day with auecvssive delegations of j
members of tli-'eonventlon who had BOOM to assure i
h'm of th* ir support for the Governorship. Ho I
received all his visitors with a hearty gra?> of
the hand and thanked them earnestly f?r theil :
proifcrs of support* No opponent of Mr. Hiller *
waa BB8fas__d by nny one, and it became obvious
before the end of the day that he would be norn- |
ii.iit.-il by aclamation. Early in the evening Mr.
M.Iur left his room, and democratically received
Ms visitors in the main offloe of Congress Hall.
.Vliiie he was thus chatting with a orowd of
- Meads, Colene! Frederick D. Grant arrived
' the hotel from Lake George, when* he is pass?
ing thc sumn* r. Colonel Grant walked up to
IX-SrastOf Mil cr and said:
'* I have con-" to do what I can to help you."
Mr. Miller giaaped Colonel Grant's hand and
said: " Thank vu. I shall need your help after
my noni mut uni"
Colonel Grant replied: "Ton shall have li
1 wis clad to ?a*l to-day whah you said yesterday
in favor of our adopting a Hijjh Licence plank
V* i arill hav*' the tetniH-rance sentiment of the
State lappar*lag you on that plank."
Senator Millar answered. u Yes I am confi?
dant that all temperance m*-n will support thi Ba*
pobUeaa party, if wi toke thal Btand. I think
cne-half the Prohibitionists will do so. I have
beea highly gratified la-day hy the cordial support
f.f ? High License plank that comes from all part.*)
cf ih. Slate. The only opposition made to it
cim*". fr.m Buffalo and Rochester delegates, and
they will not bc able to defeat High Lc nw in the

Yet tin rc was some opj-osition. Jacob Hess, of

aa a High License plank would alienate thousands
?f German lu ?publicans and lead them to vote the

The Ricbi'Ster men took the hint and did not
"Ppoint the committee. However, ex-Senator D.
H. McMillan, ol Buffalo, busied himself in opih>s
ing thc High Licenw plank, nnd Mr. Weber's
chances of being nominated for Lieutenant Gov?
ernor laded ns fast as McMillan made his ariru
iiient. Mr. McMillan ai-ucl ihat the temper
ance plank of a year ago should be ndopled, but
he wus told by about every delegate ihat he met
Ihat th:s wns not strong enough on the subject of
High Lie.msc.
'Ihe talk of the delegates showed that tlie Com
rnlttee on Resolutions of the Convention
bv a largo majority would favor a High-License
plank
Thero wns another significant lneldent at 10
o'clock. The Republican State Commttce met at,
Congress Hall and selected (ieneral Benjamin F.
Tracy, of Brooklyn, for temporary chairman of the
convention. After the adjournment of the co.u
mittee Jacob Hess and Bernard Biglin, of Baw*
York, tried to persuade General Tra*, to avoid .ill
allusion to Hii,h License in the speech he will
tiittke to-morrow upon taking the chair. General
i rn'y declined to take their advice, and after
wan said to a TuiBt. NF, correspondent:
" It would be weakness to retrace onr st*.pe
now on this High-License question. Wc are com

not new. but he was so clever In his operations
that the polleo look upon bim as a dannie.on*
ragas He made ready for his work by depositing
4*10 In the Fifth Avenue Dank an.l getting a ocr
tined check and a cheek book. Than he forced the

also forged litton of Introduction to various firms,
pretended tn bc In tbe trade and talked of making
extensive pnrcha.es.
Having pained the confldeneo of a firm he would
select good* worth a email sum and otter to pay for
(hem with one of hi* worthless check*. As a rule
his check? wero accepted promptly on account of
the torgad certification, and he tecelved balances in
cash or In checks which ho oould have ce. bed with?
out trouble. His practice was to offer a chi*ck which
wan for a few hundred dollars more than the amount
of his pretended purchase, and he made no attempt
afterward to get the goods which he had s*'|cr:.-il.

gattea money lavishly. He also went to the oflice
