David Tl. HUI Edward Murphy, Jr., William
jr. Sheehan and Isaac H. Maynard, with the as?
sistance of a choice lot of Democratic political
thugs, stole the Sonata* of this State two years
ago from the party to which it rightfully be?
longed. Judgment has been passed on thal
theft, and the result is that the Republicans now
have nineteen members of the Senate and the
Democrats thirteen. Lately, however, persistent
rumor!* have been in circulation that the same
.et of worthies who were responsible for the
theft of 1*,91 had determined to aecure the Sen?
ate of 1S94-.3. Two years hrh they did lt by st-al
ing return- and arbitrarily counting in a Sen?
ator, who since has died, who did not come
within 1.700 votes of an election. It is now re?
ported that they intend to get control of the
Senate in an entirely different way. This time
bribery, it is said, will be used to capture three
.-?ats. thus makins the Senut? a tie.
It is difficult to believe, however, that the
men now in control of the Democratic Suit" ma?
chine will dar? to allow this to I..* done, for
they ought to know that the people will not
permit lt if lt should bo undertaken, and th"
men who, lt is said, would goorer to the Demo*
crats hardly would dare to show themselves at
their homes after they cast their lot with the
Democratic State machine. The career cf
O'Palr, the member of Assembly who was
elected by Republican votes, and who earned
the title of traitor, ls still pretty fresh in the
minds of politicians. O'Dair was shunned by
nearly every one In the Assembly, and Cow of
the members of the party Which h. supported
associated with him.
Tl'". ALBAtTT CONFT.nr.xcE.
The conference which was held in Albany on
Yv"ednrf*1-y, between Edward Murphy, jr., Lieu*
tenant-Governor Sheehan, G.vernor Roswell P.
l'lower and others, is understood among poli?
ticians to have had a great deal more to do
with the plot to secure the Senate than it did
with the action of the men who launched the
new Democratic State machine. Some of the
newspapers which are In the confidence of the
men who were at the conference published yes?
terday articles declaring that the confer.n. e
was all about the new Democracy. It is thought
by many that this was merely a blind to cover
up the real plans of the conspirators. Money
would be needed, it ls suggested, to carry out
the scheme which Murphy, Flower and Sheehan
are said to be trying to put through, and some
politicians thought yesterday that the confer?
ence was probably one to secure funds with
which to operate.
Those who think that the Democratic bosses
are really at work on a scheme to steal the
Senate reason this way: There are various rea?
sons, they say, why Roswell P. Flower does not
want to serve as Governor with a Republican
Legislature. He knows that a good many re?
form measures will I.e placed before him and
that he* will be compelled either t" sign or io
veto them. M.. ny of th.* irn-asnies will I,.* those
repealing laws whi.-h he lins signed at th- dic?
tation either of Hill, Murphy, Sheehan or
Croker. If he should sii-n tli.- hills repealing
these laws he would loee th- support "f the
machine, and if h<* should not sign them le'
would lose the rapport af decent people, arhlcl.
he dearly cravee and which be has i.n trying
recently to obtain. A Senate which was Demo*
eratic or tied could prevent theae billa getting to
him, and while- he could poae as a reformer, the
wicked Senate, controlled by William F. Rhee*
han, might stand between bim rmi reform
measures. Sheehan weill ii',' atop at thi*- s irl
of work. He showed when he allowed Charles
A. Walk'-r to h.- teated in 1892 thal he had ii"
conception of common decency. Mr. Sheehan
now is in thi.- dty and ir was learned yeaterday
that he saw several prominent Democratic poll
tiejans and that he held long c maultatlona with
them. He cam" here Immediately after tie- i in?
ference at Albany. What h.- is really doing nero
could not be learned.
.MU' THEY MAI) EN0n.Il TO ATTEMI'T Till-.1
It is charged that perhaps a bolder Boheme
tuan bribery may he reaorted t". The <'!<*rk of
tia "-.-nate of the last s> .-sion makes np the
roil of the Incoming Senate. lt is expei ted
that he will prepare the roll in accordance with
tbe certificates which are presented to him.
He is expected under th'* law to do tii.it. Sup?
posing however, he should chOOOO to put on
the names ..f three Democrata and refine to
put or. the names ol' the Republicans who wen
sleeted in th.-ir places, Mr. Sheehan, as Lleu*
leaaat-Oovernor, would refuse to hear the prot?
ests of th- Republicans, ani as each bran ii
of the Legislature is th" Judge nf tin- qualifi?
cation and election of its membera, a reaolu
ti 'ii t-. s.-ai lie- thro.- Democrata would be
voted on and carried, and nothing beyond brut"
force e..u].i get tl"- illegally seated members <"it
of the Senate. Of course this would be a bold
stroke, and even Sheehan might quail, but the
machine is desperate, and ll would rather lose
almost anything than lose the Senate. Boasts
have boon mada by Hill mon that Mr. Owens
and Mr. Bradley, who were elected by the Re?
publicans from Brooklyn, would be found \"t
ing with the Democrats. This is denied "ii the
best possible authority. Mr. Owena already
has pledged himself to the support of his
party, and it is understood that there is no ques?
tion as io the position of Mr. Bradley. Ills
friends declare that he will \"!" With lh- Re*

BUKKUAM A JAIN IN EVIDENCE.
Ltoutenant-Oovernor Winiam P. Bheohan's
tall figure was prominent In the Hoffman House
corridor and cafe yesterday for Ute Amt time
since the election of November 7. Considering
the terrible thrashing which his party received
OB that occasion and the political whaling that
was administered to Mr. Sheehan personally
and individually in Buffalo and Erle County, it
must be admitted that he looked exceedingly
well.
"I am very well and strong," he said, and
then, aftorasllghl pause, added the word "phys?
ically," as if fearful that it might be supposed
that he was boasting "f political health and
strength, stat- Treasurer Elliot Danforth, who
? scaped the anti-Democratic cyclone by not
being pul Up for vindication this year, was also
a Hoffman House guest. The Lleutenant-Gov*
ernor and the State Treasure;- are members of
the State Canvassing Board, which will soon be
convened to canvass the election returns for
State officers-, delegates to thS Constitutional
Convention and members of the State Senate
and Assembly.
AXOTHEB CONFERENCE nr.r.F. to mot.now.
To-morrow* another conference of the same
kind is to take place in this city, at which the
same persons who mel in Albany on Wednes?
day are to com" together again, with one ii *
portant addition?Richard Crok.r. The subjects,
it is believed, which w.-re discussed at the Al?
bany mee ti nj*, will form the main topics for con?
sideration at to-morrow's conference in New*
v. rk. Naturally, the Grace-Falrchi-d-Antl
Snapper uprising gives Messrs. Hill. Murphy,
Sheehan and Croker considerable uneasiness,
and naturally tin; i- one of the things that
brings then* all together here. How- best to
m.et, overturn and destroy the political party
which is being reorganized to snatch from th'-m
the control of thc State machinery and
the party reins will undoubtedly engag.
a good d.ai of their attention. Bul machine Dem?
ocrats, t . whom the political complexion of the
state Senate ls a matter of personal snxlety,
are responsible fer the statement that the main
question which owners of the Democratic or?
ganisation In this State will decide is whether
there shall be a repetition of the tactics of 1891
and an attempt made to turn the Senate n <-p<*.
omi time Into a Democratic body In defiance i f
the popular will. Whether Senator Murphy and
Mr. Croker will counsel going ahead in the
hasardous and scandalous business of altering
the elecetlon figures In Senate districts or trying
t i steal the Senate In some other way remains I i
be se.-n. That Mr, Hill has a Slate Canvassing
Board whi.-h he can rely upon to consummate
whatever deviltry he may command is shown
by the frauds to whi h this board gave Its
sanction two years ago.
Mr. Sheehan was ssked about these matters
last evening, bul h-^ dis reetly and affably de?
clined either to confirm or deny the reports
which grew out of thc Albany conference, snd
the expected meeting In thi*-1 Ity, What seem.-1
to disturb the Lieutenant-Governor most was a
report as ?.. what he was alleged lo have said
about the New-Tork state Democracy move?
ment. Ho was quoted ss saying: "Wo ex?
pected this sort Of thing. lt's the same old
son-.*. What th- hell will lt amount to?"
"Now," he said. "I don't care much about
this, but I dislike to have language of thia
kind attributed to me. What will people who
don't know me think of me? I never talk that
way to anybody, and ai Albany l talked lo
nobody but Senator Hill and Senator Murphy.
It isn't likely th it .ither of th.*m repeated
talk of this kind as coming from in.-."
TO SAVE TLOWKM ANM BBKEAW.
Nothing Could induce Mr. Sheehan to talk
aboul the Antl*8nappers ortho Intentions of the
"combine" as to the state Senate, a Democrat
who knows a gr.-at deal of to-morrow's pro?
gramme said last evening that ? plan would be
developed for counteracting the Qrace-Falrehild
movement, and to save Plower and Sheehan
from the fate which the anti-machine men are
j,rei,.uing for them lex- year. To -it -t this no
pams will be spared in the next few ???

th- win ,,f ti,.- people "ii the |.l'-.l that the election
returns were wrongly prepared.
Albany Republicans were considerably puzzled by
th- presence here for nearly two weeks after Elec?
tion Day of Oeorge l-:. owens, th- Republican, who,
to his greal surprise, found that he had defeated
Senator M..'.aii-'-n in Brooklyn. It should he stat.-.l

MR. HACKETT TAKES PRECAUTIONS.
Charles W. Hackett, the chairman of the Execu?
tive Committee of the Republican state committee,
was here to-day and looked into the situation a
little. Ho expressed no alarm, although he took
precautions against tha counting out of Republican
Senators-elect Ms wm at once request ali tho Re?
publican county clerks and Republican hoards of
supervisors to take great cara in making out their
election returns, Speaking uhout tha matter, Mr.
Hack, tt sriid:
"The Democratic leaders nre ho-isMnr* of having
won "v.-r George W. Owens, Republican, of tin
ivih Senate District "f Brooklyn. I saw Mr.
Owens yesterday In New?Tork, and he assured mo
that he wns (Irmly a Republican, should vote with
the Republicans upon the organisation nf the Senate
.ml never had had a thought of doinff anything
else. We have eighteen RepubUcan Senators. They
are Child**, Reynolds, Owens, Robertson, Lexow,
Donaldson, Kill.urn. Mulila, Coggeshall, stapleton,
O'Connor, Saxton, Sm.-l-.-r, Parsons, Pound. Lamy,
Persons and Higgins. Th.-r.- ar.- eighteen Re?
publican Senators and th.- regular Democrats are
only thirteen in number. Daniel Bradley, the inde?
pendent Democrat, is an honest mid trustworthy
man. Ile will not aet with the men who strove to
d.-f.-it him at the polls to defeat the m.-n who
aided ills election. 1 can scarcely heli.-V" that the
Democratic Btate Hoard of Canvassers will dare
to attempt to count out Republican Senators, aa
they did In IMI, bul I shall mk.- even precaution
poi il hie io prevent their accomplishing such a
?windle."
The stnte Board of Canvasser! can meet nnv
time before December tt. It tiumot begin to uct
