order, and that the resolution Is referred to the Committee on Resolutions withnut debate. Stokes refused to accept the decision of the Chair, and clamored for the reading of his platform. Hi? remarks were almost drowned by the hisfes and cries in the convention. The clamor kept up for a long time. Finally Chair man Danforvh s=aid: "Under the rules adopted by thlr body, any one creating a disturbance in the convention •.•ill be excluded from the building." MISSES A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. Here was the place where Stokes had a great opportunity, but he failed to grasp it. Mr. Dan forth admitted last r.igiit that he was in a cold sweat to koow whether Stokes would take him at his word or not. Stokes, however, didn't. If he had said: "I stand and fall upon that, and will have it go upon record that a Democratic delegate was expelled from the State Conven tion of the Democrats of the State of New-York for urging the reafnrmation of the Chicago platform," he would have placed the Chair and the leaders in a box where they would not have dared to exclude him, and the fight would have been precipitated, as a vote upen the question would have been necessary. As it was. he missed his opportunity and subsided. Senator McCarren came in a little after this and announced that the Committee on Resolu tions was Just about completing its work, and that it Trould be ready to make a report within half an hour. He susr.^ested that the convention etand adjourned until this report could be made. Chairman Danforth said that, as the convention had agreed to vacate the hall by G o'clock, he thought it best to wait quietly for the report of the Committee on Resolutions. This ems ■creed to. In the interim the band played and Stokes aram clamored for a hearing. Finally the Com mittee on Resolutions entered the hall, and Fred erick C. Shraub was escorted to the Ftage and read the platform. When he came to the money plank and slurred it over he was hissed end cheered. When he declared that the dele gation should be instructed for Brj'Rn 'some one In the gallery robbed out in a triumphant voice: "I-n-s-t-r-u-e-t-e-d! T-h-a-n-k O-o-d!" When Mr. Sfhraub finished and a vote was called for the irrepressible Stokes again jumped up and offered his platform as an amendment. He was cried down and a vote taken. When the vote was over he went at it again but Senator Grady called for the thanks of the convention "for the able and satisfactory way in which th« Officers of the convention served,*' and they were roted. and amid Stckes's clamor an adjournment was taken. THE REAL STATE MACHINE. The delegations from the various Senate dis tricts to the State Convention yesterday named members of the State Committee. There ar« fifty members of the State Committee, one from each Senate district. This committee is the real State machine. It. practically makes nomi nations, platforms, settles contests and regu lates the party. Senator Hill has always been powerful through control of this committee until Croker wrestc-d it away from him some time a.go. It was boldly announced yesterday that he would elect a majority of State Com mltteemen favorable to him. In this case it had been declared that Frank Campbell, the present chairman and a warm and loyal friend of Mr. Hill. would be re-elected. It was declared that Senator P. 11. McCarren was the candidate of the anti-Hill men. Therefore great Interest was taken in the election of the com mittee. The committee met at the Hoffman House last night to organize. Upon the com pletion of the organization it was apparent that Mr. Hill was in control. The committee formed by electing Frank Campbell, of Bath, chairman. Eugene Hughes, of Onondaga, was elected treas urer. Mr. Hughes, who is a partner of John F. Gaynor, succeeds Mr. Oaynor on the com mittee and as treasurer. Charles R. De Freest •was elected secretary. John A. Mason, assistant secretary, and Len Me:'Wag«r, sergeant-at nrms. Mr. Hill made the motions, and also offered resolutions seating P. E. McCabe, in Albany; James H. Flannigan, In the XXXIVth District, and Jacob Gerllng in the XLIVth Dis trict. The chairman of the committee was em powered to appoint an executive committee. He will do so to-day, and it will probably be the old committee, with Elliot Danforth as chair man. MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE.

"While on the face of the proceedings yesterday It would appear that Hill is in control and dominant in the State organization, it is ap parent that his hn!d upon the organization is precarious, and it Is generally understood that he ran affairs yesterday simply because his op ponents, who numerically wore stronger tljan he, allriv.-»»d him to do so. Hill can make a nasty fight if be wants to, and he didn't mince •words in saying that he objected to be "crowded off the earth." and declaring that if he were pushed too far he would make a fight on the floor, of the convention that would bring forth some ugly facts about certain Tammany load ers and their affiliation with the Ice Trust. The anti-Hill men. after a conference, decided that Httle v.a« to be gained by fighting Hill now. There are no nominations 10 be made, no patron age to be dealt out, and the only issue was a matter of policy, and Hill conceded heavily on that, so there was bo reason to fight him. This is paid to explain the deferring of certain mat ters to him. / It was said last night by those who are in a position to know that control of the State Com mittee could have been wrested from Mr. Hill i? it had b*-en so desired, and that he was al lowed to name his own men because there was no stake at issue. It as pointed out that the real test would come this fall, when candidates are to be named and matters of moment are to be decided It wan added last night that when this did come up the anti-Hill men would start contests in various districts, and unseat his men and take control of the committee away from him. That remains to be worked out later, however, and to-day Mr. Hill sterns to be master of the situation and safely ensconced UNNATURAL FLESH REDICnU hv i.immm; off COFFEE AND L'SIXG I'OSTI M POOD COFFEE.

He made the .entire back of the stage a maprnlflcent ice scene. It may have been meant for Spitsbergen or Vladivostok, bat to the crowd it looked exactly like tho Maine coast. There was a dark cliff, at the front of which were the cottages of ten ice cutting families. A perspective view gave an iceberg about half a mite long. This was a beauty. John F. Carroll looked at it with watering mouth— if he'd like to have, the whole berg in Kouneenth-st.. where, with pcales and tongs, he could sell it at "60 cents per. ' There was only one thing needed to make the ice • ;•• i complete. There was no action in it. There should have been some of the American Ice Com pany's yellow delivery wagons in the scene. If this had" been added a snapshot of the convention would have been a veritable thing of beauty. MR. PALI.ISER "'AS "OPES."— G. Palliser, secretary of the State Chicago Platform Democ racy, was on the platform at the Academy of Mu sic yesterday afternoon. He wants Bryan for President, free silver, the referendum and a lot of other things. He last night was as happy as a bobolink on a June morning. "I tell you," said ho, "the Bryan men who have done the hammering in this State for the last three years begin to see their reward. The Bryan men generally will feel satisfied with the result of this day's proceedings. The dele gation to Kansas City goes Instructed for Bryan and pledged to support the platform adopted there. The out and out Bryan men will frame the plat form, and Tammany will do this fall what it fniled to do four years ago." MISTAKEN IDENTITY.— A tall man wearing his hair cut Buffalo Bill fashion, with a large som brero and a hiiße silver chain looped several times on his waistcoat, strolled nmonsr the up-State dele gates |ust after adjournment yesterday afternoon at i o'clock. One of the rural delegates went up to him. n;a.<ii.>..l him !.v the hand and Bald: "Stranger, I don't know who you be, but from the Bise " f that silver chain around your neck and body and youi (i.'ticral 'cut, 1 I take it you are from Nebraska, and that you #n> whooping It up fer Kryan Am I right or am I wrotifi'.'" "You're exactly wrong." aald th^ stranger im permrhably, wilh a grin. "I'm .Mm the Juggler, doln' a turn at "tie of the vaudeville places in this City, and if you'll come around to-night you'll s^e a lot of new business. As to my polities, you're wrong a:j;nin. 1 am wearing this silver chain be cause there's a Democratic convention running here, but I've got a gold chain .-llmost as big. and whf>n I strike a town wher-> the Republicans are particularly thick I wear the gold chain." "GERRYMANDER" AND '•JERRYMANDER."— Assemblyman John T. Norton, th.- temporary chairman, was attacking the Republican State ad ministration, and referred to the alleged gerry mander <>f the State, whereby the' Republicans, ac cortiing to Mr. Norton, have more Senate and As aeinbly districts than they arr- entitled in. "If old Professor Perry, of Williams, should hear Norton say 'Jerrymander Instead of 'gen > naander* he.i turn over in his grave." said a man from Troy. "Norton and 1 were classmates at Wil lams, and old Professor Perry us^d to lecture us on our English. lie had a horror of hearing the word ■gerrymander' mispronounced, and he used to haul Norton over the coals for ii After all these years. with thre»» thousand people to hear him, he" goes rtijlil ahead and harrows up the memory of the old professor l'> calling it 'jerrymander. ' " And the Trojan heaved a sigh as he again listened to Mr. Norton's long drawn out address. "STOKES OF BSBEX."— "Btokes of Essex" hod hi.- little day yesterday, was flattened out by the convention steam roller, and will no d'niht go back home and tt II his neighbors that he fearlessly bearded the Tammany tiger In his lair. Mr. Stokes is a man with wavy white hair and a florid, middle Sg«d face. He tried to sidetrack the convention into adopting the Chicago platform yesterday afternoon, and his effort lent considerable gayety to the occasion. Mr. Stokf-s closely resembles Frederick W. Hinrlchs. of Brooklyn, only he's a t;on<i deal older thaa the latter. After he'had had his first little tiitip. and had been suppressed, the convention grew tired of him, ami whenever lie raised his voice be was howled at. Finally an angry Tammany! te yelled at him, "Say, who the devil are you. any way v 'Tm a Bryan Democrat, that's who 1 am," *«i<! the pugnacious Stokes But every one knew it before he .said It. SLIM ASSETS FOR NEW TREASURER.-John F. Qaynor, the retiring treasurer of the Democratic State Committee, has been succeeded by his busi ness partner, Eugene Hughes, of Syracuse, so that the treasurership, as a Tammany man put it last night, is "still in the family." When Mr. Gaynor was ask< i last night about the condition of the treasury be said: "The seta assets of the Demo cratic State Committee at the present time consists of two barrels of Bryan buttons. Thai's all I've got to turn over to my successor." •jimmik" OLIVER "LOOMB."— "Jimmie" Oli ver, of Paradise Park, the perpetual consolation of William Jennings Bryan whenever the latter thinks of the way Tammany Hall treated him four years ago. begins to "loom uj>." Mr. Oliver does not "loom up" as a candidate for anything In particu lar, but still he "looms"— handy-like so that if. any thing fortunate should happen to Mr. Bryan "Jim mle" will be in a receptive mood. Mr. Oliver sat on a sofa In the Hoffman House last night with Clarence Ladd Davis and Thomas W. Scania:,, or Brooklyn. The thr<r-«' are supposed to be rabid 'fill verltes, but Mr. Oliver is more of a harmonizer these days than he is a partisan. "If I could speak In ten cities In this State for B.ryan next fall we would carry the State by "s,o>> auje," said Mr. Davis. Air. Scanian nodded assent, and then made the somewhat pertinent suggestion that neither Hill nor Augustus Van Wycfc was a Democrat. "Huh!" eaid Mr Oliver, in one of his pacifying and harmonizing moods, "there's mere Democracy in Hill's little linger, or In one hair of (jus' Van Wyck's head, than there is In 4,000 Llllputlana Uko you." Mr. Scanian— Oliver, you ran away In 18j6. you're a quitter, and the streak of yellow In you Is so big that you could »ell yourself to a paint works for an ochre bed. Mr. Oliver— What! Me run away?

BOBR8 1 FAINT RESISTANCE. Continued from Unit p««' Pretoria have been taken leads many military men to suspect that there has been a secret un derstandinp between President Krliger and the r>riii =)i Government by which the war will be brought to an end without unnec<»ssar> loss of life and wasteful destruction of property. This theory, while plausible, cannot be proved, since neither President Krtiper nor Lord Roberts will admit that there has been any secret intrigue or that the closing scenes of the war have been prearranged in any sense The safer generaliza tion Is that thf» Roers have fought Rallantly against the resources of a miphty empire, and have beon finally overwhelmed by superior num bers and energy, and that I,ord Roberts has wotted out an intricate problem in the dynamics of war. He has known how much force was needed on the advance line and what kind of force, and how to prote'et his line of communi cations most effectively by operations on the eastern flank under General Rundle. The campaign may now be said to have ?nded west of the l!n-» drawn from Pretoria to Ficksburg-. General Hunter's divßsior is re ported to have entered I>lchtens>urg, Lord Methuen wtll probably turn up at Fovtchefstroom and Generals Baden-Powell and Carring-ton will occupy Zeerust and Rustenburg. The occupa tion of Pretoria will probably dishearten the Free State forces, and the Bethlehem, Harrl smith and Vrede districts will be gradually overrun by General Rundle's forces. The re niainins operations of the war will be restricted to the Lydenburg district, to which the forces still holding Lamp's Nek must retreat through Ermelo. There are many signs that the struggle will end in the course of a fortnight, and the details of the surrender of Pretoria, communicated by Lord Roberts at midnigJU, support this view. From Ix>nl Roberts's reptort it arpears that the Boers were driven back fairly into Pretoria in Monday's engagement, and that the surrender of the town was demanded. General Botha proposed an armistice for settling the terms of surrender, and Lord Roberts replied that there could be no conditions. General Botha decided against any attempt to defend the town, and the civil officials arranged for the entry of the troops during tho afternoon, as had been done at Johannesburg. Th? wives of President Krii- Kf>r and General Botha remained in the town and no attempt was made to remove the British prisoners to Waterval. All the prisoners will be, speedily released, and the stand made in the Lydenberg district is not likely to be serious. SCEN'ER OF ROWDY ENTHUSIASM. The street scenes in London were less ani mated yesterday than on Mafeking night. Flags were carried by crowds of revellers for hour after hour, and there were processions of men and boys singinp: and shouting themselves hoarse, but the demonstration lacked the sin cerity and spontaneity of Mafeking night. There was more rowdyism and horseplay and less patriotism. The crowds in the Strand, Pall Mall and Piccadilly were smaller, but the police were kept busier in restraining them and in keeping order. Music halls rang with applause when "Bobs's" portrait was displayed, and his name was constantly cheered in the streets. There will be no Commemoration at Oxford this month on account of the war, but there will be an "American I>ay." on which a series of honorary degrees will be conferred at a spe cial meeting of the Convocation The list will include tho presentation of a degree of Doctor of Civil Law to Charles Eliot Norton, of Har vard; Doctor of Divinity to the Rev. Dr. Morgan Dix. and Doctor of Science to Professor Chand ler, of Columbia, and Professor Mark Baldwin, of Princeton. The last degree is remarkable since psychology has never before had a scien tific recognition of this kind in an English uni versity, j N F ENTRY INTO JOHANNESBURG. SCENES AT THE RAISING OF THE BRITISH FLAG OVER CAPTTTRED CITY. Johannesburg, June 1.-The entry of an armed force yesterday into the large, modern, populous town afforded such a strange contrast to the previous Incidents of the war as to make the occasion peculiarly memorable. pp O on after 10 o'clock Lord Roberts and his staff left the camp, followed by the Gußrds and Stevenson's brigades and a few newspaper correspondents. Preparations had been made, on a large scale to welcome the Field Marshal. The space around the courthouse was thronged, and the balconies were filled with women. In front of the court house the Vierkleur. the Free State flag was still flying. About 2 o'clock cheers in the distance her alded the approach of Lord Roberts. The din increased and became deafening as the Com mander in Chief, calm and collected, leading the column into the square, reached the front of the courthouse. The crowd became almost un manageable, trying to break through the cordon formed by the bodyguard in order to g«t closer view?. Cheers, chorus and cries of welcome and "Well done, Bobs, 1 " resounded on all sides. After his introduction to the chief officials, Lord Roberts dismounted and entered the court house, made a short speech accepting the sur render of the place, and requested the officials to retain their offices for the present. General Roberts afterward left the building, remounted and the Vierkleur was hauled down, with hur rahs from the nondescript population, but there was visible emotion on the part of many of the rugged burghers. Tears streamed down the faces of these big. bearded men at the sight of the loss of the flag they had fought for so well. After a brief Interval the rattle of drums and shrieking of fifes heralded the approach of Gen eral Pole-Carew's Guards. The troops were drawn up around the flagstaff and the Union Jack made by Lady Roberts was hoisted, the fifeß playing "God Save the Queen." As the music ceased a great roar of chssWS broke out, followed by a chorus of "God Save the Queen " 1 Miring the singing of the anthem a tall Free State artilleryman who was watehlnp the cere mony refiiFtd to remove his hat, and a bystand r tried to fores him to do so, when a British hJ^^v 1 !

Guardsman forcefully Interposed, saying: "T,eave him alone. He fought for his Ha*. You are too cowardly to fight for any flag." A march past, subsequent to the march through the town, closed the ceremony. Lord Roberts's headquarters was at a small inn in an orange grove. Thrre was a characteristic scene there at the close of his victorious day. One of the staff officers approached In order to discuss a matter of importance, and found the Field Mar shal with the innkeeper's little daughter on his knee, trying to teach her to write. When the officer interrupted, Lord Roberts looked up with a smile, and said: "Don't come now. Can't you see I am busy?" THE FIGHTING ON MONDAY. COMMANDER IN CHIEF'S REPORT ON OPER ATIONS AT SIX MILES SPRUIT. London, June s.— The War Office this morning issued the following dispatch received from Lord Roberts: Six Miles Spruit, June 4, fc3o p. m— We started this morning at Daybreak, and marched about ten mile* to Six Miles Spruit, both banks of which were occupied by the enemy. Henry's and Ross's mounted infantry, with the West Somerset. Dorset. Bedford and Sussex companies of yeomanry, quickly dislodcfd tlurn from the south bank and pursued th«>m nearly a mile, ■when they found themselves under a heavy flr» from guns which the Boers had placed In a TIIE CAPITAL AT TRETORTA. well concealed commanding position. Our heavy guns of the Xaval and Royal Ar tillery, which had purposely been placed in the front part of the column, were hurried to the assistance of the mounted infantry as fast as oxen and mules could travel over the great roll ing hills surrounding Pretoria. The guns were supported by Stevenson's brigade of Pole- Carew's division, and after a few rounds drove the enemy from their positions. The Boers then attempted to turn our left flank, In which they were again foiled by the mounted infantry and yeomanry, supported by Maxwell's brisado of Tucker's division. As. however, they still kept pressing our left rear, I sent word to lan Hamilton, who was advancing three miles to our left, to incline toward us and fill up the gap between the two columns. This finally checked the enemy, who were driven back toward Pretoria. I hoped we wtmld have been able to follow them up, but the days now are very short in this part of the wflrld. and af ter nearly two hours' marching and fiKhtn..? we had to bivouac on the ground gained during the day. The Guards' nrlgade is quite near the south ernmost fort by which Pretoria is defended, and le.«s than four miles from the town. French, with the Third and Fourth Cavalry brigades and Hutton's New South Wales Mounted Rifles, is north of Pretoria. Broad wood's brigade is between French's and Hamil ton's columns, and Gordon is watching the right flank of the main force, not far from the rail way bridge at Irene Station, which was de stroyed by th"» enemy. Our casualties, I hope, are very few. CELEBRATIONS in ENGLAND. London. June . r >.— The news from Pretoria had practically no effect on the Stock Exchange, but as the day wore on the crowds around the Man sion House Increased In numbers, and the cele brations assumed the now familiar form which marked Mafeking Day. Stung to action by the comments upon the recent demonstrations, the per. c made more strenuous endeavors to-day to keep order; but horseplay, drunkenness and rowdyism prevailed wherever the crowds were thick. The inhabitants of the provincial towns were not a whit behind those of London in hail ing the victors. Bells were rung, flags were flown and holidays were declared all over Eng land. Eton had postponed its annual celebration un til to-day, and as Lord Roberts is one of the most distinguished old Etonians he Is coming in for great ovations from the school, which has 844 alumni in South Africa, among them being Generals Bull<r, Methuen, Barton, Lyttleton, Hutton and Dundonald, and ?o many other dis tinguished soldiers that it is already being said that Pretoria was "won on the playing fields of Eton." In the course of the celebration to-day the Eton boys telegraphed their congratulations to Lord Roberts. The Lord Mayor of London, A. J. Newton, has sent the following message to Lord Roberts: The empire will never forget what you and the forces under your command have accom plished.

June 5— The War Office has informa tion that one of the first things done by Lord Roberts after the occupation of Pretoria was to direct General French to relieve the British prisoners confined at Waterval. CONSUL HAY REPORTS ALL WELL. BEI.TKF THAT HE WILL BOON RKTT'RN' FROM PRETORIA. Washington. June s.— The two words "All well" were all that United States Consul Hay had to send to the State Department on the oc casion of the occupation of Pretoria by the British to-day. Probably the Consul, knowing that the news of Lord Roherts's occupation •would reach the State Department through the regular news channels, felt that it was only necessary for him to assure the Department that the United States Consulate had not been dis tttrsed in th^ critical period Incident to the abandonment of the Boer capital by Its former defenders. However, the Consul has scrupulous ly refrained from communicating in his official dispatches any information respecting the mili tary situation that might by any possibility be disadvantagfous to the Boers. With the occupation of Pretoria by the Brit ish the United States Consul has nearly ex iiaiißted his usefulness in the Transvaal. Hr> went there at a critical time, and has acquitted himself to the entire satisfaction nf both the British and the Boers. Now that the war has passed beyond the Boer capital, the duties of ths Consul will he reduced to the ordinary routine, so that Consul Hay Is at liberty to return to th«l United States, and It Is assumed that he will avail himself in the nenr future of the permis sion which has been given him to surrender his appointment.

The names on the registered stock list oT the American Ice Company made infertFtlng read ing for New-Yorkers yesterday, and a great many persons who were curious to know the exact amount of Ice Trust shares which had been in rhe past or wore still held by Mayor Van Wyck. his brother. Augustus: Dock Commit sloneie Murphy and Cram, certain Judges. Mr. Croker and Mr. Carroll set to work upon It with pencil, paper and energy, hut no two of then* seemed to arrive at exactly the same results. Others of a less mathematical turn of mind dis regarded the puzzling mafs of detail which the list presented and contented themselves with ths main fact prove!., namely, that wfcra the Ameri can Ice Company was making contracts with the city for the use of piers and the supplying of ice large amounts of stock in that company stcod in the name of the city's Mayor, so that he was financially interested in seeing that th<i«.» contracts were favorable- to the company rather than to the city, whose interests he had been elected to protect. MAY LEAD TO REMOVAL. That fart alone may l c -ad to the Mayor's re moval from office, and it is not necessary to show that he used his power of veto upon Sena tor Ahearn's bill for the improvement of the water front in any sensationally suspicious man ner. The truth is that he acquired flve thousand shares of Ice Trust stock on April 2i>, liMt and the Ahearn bill was vetoed on April 20, ISM But an active curiosity has, of course, b»en aroused to learn how Mayor Van Wjrck man aged to acquire stock in this company to ths par value of about ?1,000,000. He has not as serted that he camo by it in tIM ordinary busi ness way. William 1.,.

Randolph Guggenheimer. president of the Municipal Council, yesterday repeated his dec laration that he never owned more than one share of the Ice Trust stock. He said that the two hundred shares of the stock appearing in his name on the books were purchased by him for others on May 2»i, 1890. and he did not re member that they ever stood in his name. The stock, he said, was bought for $10,000, *nnd it was sold on October 20, 1800, through August Belmont & Co.. for $11.120 50. Mr. Guggen heimer declined to disclose the names of the persons for whom he had purchased the stock. Controller Coler reaffirmed his purpose yester day to move slowly in the proceedings which he has been requested by "The Journal" to take against the Ice Trust. He is not satisfied as in his powers under Chapter ."m3 of the charter, as his counsel, ex-Judge Dillon, said he was not prepared to advise that the mere holding of stock in the ice company by city officials while the company did business with the city consti tuted an offence. The Controller thinks that the better plan for him is to wait until the evi dence is submitted to some other tribunal, and then take it up. "I have not finally made up my mind." Mr. Coler said, "and I do not intend to do anything right away. I may have some thing to say later." In the afternoon he laid all the papers with which he had been served in ccr.nectlon with the ice investigation before ex-Judge Dillon. "I do not expect an opinion before to-morrow." he said. "Judge Dillon will examine the papers very carefully before reaching any conclusion. I do not care to take any chances, particularly as I am not taking the advice of the Corpora tion Counsel. I have the utmost confidence in the opinion of Judge Dillon, and shall be guided by him entirely in my conduct." The State's referee, Mr. Nussbaum, will re sume his hearing of the case against the Ice Trust this morning. It is reported that Mayor Van Wyck's counsel will appeal from Justice Gaynor's recent decision that an investigation of this scandal shall proceed before him also. THE GOVERNOR'S POSITION. Albany, June s.— Governor Roosevelt said this morning that there were no new developments la the 1 ■*• Trust rase, and that executive action would he deferred for some day* to come. Attor- Bey-Genera] levies is in New-Tors: City to-day hut is expected back to-night. The Governor will leave here Thursday for Ccncord. N.

His moat dangerous antagonists are Bostwick and Cragin. of the West Side Tennis Club, and Grant. of the Lennox Tennis Club. Two players are also entered from Brooklyn, one or them.
