Senator Fairbanks Speaks at Several
Cities in Washington.
Olympls. Wash.. Oct. I.— At this. point, the cap
ital of the State, Senator Fairbanks made the
first stop of the day. In order to come here and
to visit other places considered by the State com
mittee desirable. it was necessary to change the
entire programme for the day as originally de
signed by the national committee. This change
resulted in entirely cutting out the cities of
Seattle and Everett and th- substitution of
Olympia, Centralia, Chtli&lis. Wlr.! Xara
ville. Castlerock. Kels=o and gala Tha. all In the
northwestern corner of the State. Reports from
Seattle Indicate dissatisfaction wit.T the change,
but Senator Fairbanks haw explained that the
change was made without consulting him.
■ . The speakers were cordially re< eiveti ln Olym
pia by a large crowd, and the speeches were
liberally applauded. Senator Fairbanks com
pared the actual things accomplished by the
Republican party with the undemonstrated
theories 3t the Democrats.
Senator Dolltver discussed the tariff again.
giving his especial attention to the lumber
schedule. Senator Fairbanks was again intro
duced as the probable Presidential candidate in
1608. The presiding officer declared that this
was "not prophecy." but was foreordained.
Senator Fulton, of Oregon, Joined th<» party at
Tacoma and will continue with it until Cali
fornia is reached. -
Chehalis, Wash.. Oct. I.— ln mounting a big
stump at this point Senator Fairbanks made
reference to it, saying that th»re wa<« no better
platform to speak from than the McKinley plat
form. The McKiriey platform was noted for ita
eollditv, the Senatoi continued, and then he pro
ceeded to deliver a ealogy on McKinley. The
stump v.-as erected for President IfcKlnley dur
ing his tour In 100t». but wa« not occupied by
him. Bering to the fact that Mr.=. McKinley's M
neas made it necessary for him to remain in
San FranciF^o Senator Fairbanks referred to
this circumstance, and said that it wae fittingly

Governor Herrick Opens Republican
Campaign on Historic Ground.
Warren. Ohio. Oct. I.— The Republican cam
paign ln Ohio was formally opened here to-day
,un4*r anepietous conditions. The. weather was
fine and the crowd was large. Warren put on
its best attire In honor of the occasion, and the
streets were alive with flags and hunting. Much
enthusiasm was manifested on every hand. The
parade was ta'ten part in by many clubs and
was viewed by a shouting populace. The meet-
Ing which followed the parade was held in the
public square, ivh'-re, twenty-four years ago, the
memorable Grant-Conkling campaign in Ohio
was opened. A great throng heard the speakers.
Senator Ch.irles Dick presided, and Introduced
•Governor Herrick as the first orator. Governor

Democratic Treasury Empty —
Clark Did Xot Give $1,000,000.

cratic National Committee, is out with an appeal
for funds for the maintenance of the campaign.
The forma! a|Ji»^.l will be published on Monday. It
•* no surprise to Democrats with sound business
Judgment that the liberal contributions sent to the
national committee hive brtn used up. If the dis
bursement of the funds had been under the Buper
\lston of a controller legally responsible for the
l.roper spending of it. |yst about one-half of the
money thus far tuir.. j in would still be in the
hands of the committee. The payroll at the head
quarters of the national committee Is a wonder.
and It la growing every week. It looks as if
every member of tha national commutes lias
sent some persona! fri»-n«l or relative to New-York
and attached him to the committee. A great many
of the staff are living at the Waldorf-Astoria..
The fund* already sulisirib»-U,,Mr. I'eabody cays.
have been distributed where they will do the mom

Republican states. The printing of hundreds of
tons of documents, speeches, songs, etc.. has •■ tea
up money as fast as it has reached the committee.
It was reported or. Friday that Senator William A.
Clark had giv the committee his check for $1,000,

Clarke's contribution i? now said to have been

Telh Leaders What He Expect*—
Enthusiastic Response.
Governor Odell started for St. Louis lsst night
In order to attend the ceremonies at the World's
Fair on N*w-Tork Day. October 4. Thia will
preclude the possibility of his attending the for
mal notification ceremonies of F. W. Higglns
ar.d th» other candidates on the Republican
State ticket at Olenn on the same date. The
Governor Intended to start at noon yesterday,
but he deferred the hour of departure until mid
night In order that he might clean up some busi
ness here. He had an exceptionally busy day
yesterday, nrul when he started away last night
It was with the knowledge that his absence
would cnuse no let-up in the campaign, as ar
ranggmentf, had bet-n made for vigorously pusn
ing the work.
As h»s already be»n stated in The Tribune
the Governor intends to give almost his un
divided attention to the camralgn In the greater
ettjr. He feels that Lieutenant Governor Hig
girix. the candidate fcr Governor, and Wllllftm
Ptrnes. Ir. oria'rinan of the executive comrr.it
t<». can look after mair^rs up the State. He
1 .-iipves that the organisation up State is in
such excellent trim that it will go ahead stead
i'y under the (I'tection of these two leaders. On
the >ther hand, the Governor regards the Job
in New- York as a t<»ugh one. and he is attack
ing it with characteristic energy and vigor.
resterdajr he took the Brooklyn situation in
I ... and he had h. hue/ three hours with the
lirooMyn leader?.
Earlier In th»? week . the Oovernor had the
Manhattan leaders before him and In no un
certain tones he toM them Just what was ex
pected. He outlined a plan for a house to
house canvass and the securing and indexing of
lists of voters that would make fraudulent
voting Impossible and at the same time give
the district leaders a close hold on the voters.
He Increased the working force in each district
by sending from three to thirty men Into every
district to assist the leader. He explained that
the Republican method of campaigning In the
past had been too lax and that there was no
excuse for Tammany's great majorities. He de
clared that these majorities must be kept down
and the full Republican vote brought out. As a
result, he has stirred up more energy and en
thusUfm-. in the county committee than has ex
isted there for a dozen years, and the work is
being pushed forward with extreme vigor.
Yesterday he talked In much the same vein to
the Brooklyn leaders. He said frankly It was
no time tor nonsense and that there must be
no repetition of me bit; Republican slump that
occurred In Brooklyn two years ago. He asKed
every leader to speak freely, and he talked vig
orously himself. He sent for all the district
leader* to meet him. and all came except two.
It was *aid alter this conference that ex-Lieu
te- ant Governor Woodruff, who did not attend
the conference, owing to absence trom the city,
would attend the notification ceremonies at
Oltan on October 4, and that he would make
a number of speeches in the course of the cam-
Pa The" Governor met the Brooklyn men at 4
*)'clock. He summoned each of the twenty-one
Assembly district leaders of the county by tele
graph to meet him at that hour, and all save
Harry A. Hanbury. leader of the Mlth. and
Charles H. DeVoy. leader of the Xllth. respond
ed, and they sent representatives.
The Brooklyn delegation was led by Jacob A.
Brenner, of the VHlth and chairman of the
executive committee of Kings County. The
other leaders present were: . Harry A. Ralston,
of the Ist; William J. Beattie, of the lid; Rich
ard H. Lalmbeer, of the Hid; Alfred E. Vase, of
the IVth; Alfred T. Hobley, of the Vth Fred
erick E. Schroeder. of the Vlth; J. Lott No<»
trand. of the Vllth: Michael J. Wheeler, of the
IXth; Rudolph C. Fuller, of the Xth; Fri«nk
Gardner, of the Xlth; P. F. Williams, of the
Xlllth; George A. Owens, of the XlVth; Harry
Jaequillard. . of the XVth, Naval Officer Robert
A. Sharkey. of the XVlth; John Wlrth. of the
XVIIth: F. J. H. Kracke. of the XVlllth;
Charles H. Haubert. of the XlXth: John K. Neil,
of the XXth. and Jacob A. Livingston, of the
XX Ist.
The conference lasted two hours, and at its
close Mr. Brenner said:
"We discussed the house to house canvass we
have been making, and the campaign for Brook
lyn in general." . .
"What is the result of thr- talk?" was aksed.
"The big Republican vote n Kings County on
Election Day will show," was the reply.
"Is the Governor to have his own deputy dis
trict leader In Brooklyn?" was asked.
"No," anbwered Mr. Brenner, with emphasis.
"There was not the slightest suggestion of such
a thing made at the conference. There is no
need of it. The Brooklyn leaders are old. tried
men. who lead their districts satisfactorily to
Governor Odell." .
Governor Odell declined to discus* the confer
F. W. Higgins. the candidate for Governor,
had a talk with Governor Odell yesterday fore
noon. Mr. Higgins will remain here to-day and
bo to his home, at Olean. to-morrow, In time to
be present when the notification committee ar
rives. Mr. Higglns was not talkative yesterday.
He indicated, however, that after October 4 he
would take his own campaign in hand and man
age things. He would not discuss the reports oi
a difference of opinion between himself and
members of the national committee concerning a
speaking tour. "I am the only one who Is man
aging the candidate." he said with a smile last
night. "I will make no stumping tour. I may
make some formal addresses, so that people will
know Just where I stand, but that will all be de
termine later."
Mr. Hleglus had a talk with Chairman Cor
telyou of the national committee yesterday, but
nothing was divulged about this conference.
Grout and Congressman Williams
Fail at Brooklyn Heating Job.
While no self-respecting manual of politic* could
aptly define the scope of tli« Democratic meeting
at Clermont Avenue Rink, Brooklyn, last night. It
could more properly he described as a "relapse"
than as a "rally."
Controller Grout and Congressman John Sharp
Williams were the principal Hpeakerp.
Controller Grout, who also presided, opened the
I epeechmaklng with a characteristic addrens, rant
ing of oligarchy, plutocracy, sociallxm and Thomas
Jefferson, not even permlting the weary old cam
paign lies that Governor Odell has slain twice
■over to rest quietly In. their graves.
. He called William Jennings Bryan "one of the
great Democrats of this generation" and ex-Senator
Hill a "great Democrat . . . unjustly maligned."
To his faithful audleiico Congressman Wllllams's
speech, with Its French and Latin quotations, even
if unintelligible, was as ei.tertalning as a circus, and
equally convincing.. "The Republican machine and
Us attitude toward the trusts" was the burden of
his sons, nuns in a minor key. He was interrupted
.in the middle of his most ambitious flight by the
entrance of Senator McCarren, which was marked
by one of the most spontaneous rounds of applause
of the evening. ■■ • ••„'. '/;•.'
Congressman Williams said, In part:
'i'i#e President, who Is a candidate for re-election.
"as lately IsauM to the press a written stump

reads mor- like the message of one of God's

according to his kMdo- the logic of Louis the Four

country and its welfare. In this letter of accept
ance ftowever, here is one note— keynote we may
call it— which Is c^r;atn and unmintakabie. to wit,
that if the Republican party Is kept in power It
will continue to administer the government with
out amendment. Just a It has been administered
for the la*t tares years, If bo, then we are to have
four more, years of "stnndinc pat" and of b«a.sMn«

Other Member* of Democratic Ticket
Informed at Albany.
Albany, Oct. I.— the presence of all the first
rate bosses of the party, and of a rather meagre
body of the citizens of Albany who paid homage
to the Judge-Bors who ruled their city from the
■ Supreme Court for many years. D. Cady Herrlck
was to-day informed of his nomination as Gov
ernor by the Democratic Staf Convention at
Saratoga. Big and little, past and present, nil
th* bosses were in line. Ex-Senator Hill sat on
the platform and beamed Joyously. Charles F.
Murphy's ruddy face was also wreathed In
i smiles, while Senator Patrick H. McCarren. with
solemn demeanor, glowered at Murphy across a
number of aisles, for W. S. Rodie had carefully
separated the factional leaders. Back In the
outskirts of the gathering "Packy" McCabe and
"«rene" Wood, yesterday leaders of the anti
llerrlck faction, vainly endeavored to "look
i pleasant." Fresh from Wantage, ex-Mayor Rob
ert A. Van Wyck gazed musingly at the back of
Judge Charles N. Bulger, who only a few years
ago at Saratoga walked up and down the aisle
as he castigated Croker and Tammany. It was
a field day of bosses, and Hill and Tammany,
with scores of big and minor leaders, and Me-
Carren, with his usual following, dominated the
It was to this gathering of bosses that D.
Cady Herrick. at last, after untold years of pres
sure and criticism, an ex-Justice, for ha retired
■ from the Supreme Court bench this morning, de
clared that if elected he would be Oovernor. and
that he intended making no set speeches, but
during the campaign would attempt to lo*ik ail
comers in the eye. He arraigned the Republican
State administration, deftly alluded to the slan
ders that the Democratic leaders had been cir
culating, without actually committing himself
on the question, putting all the responsibility on
Attorney General Cunneen in this regard; an
nounced his intention of cutting down expense*
and reducing the number of State employes, and
finally declared that If elected he would de
part from the custom he adhered to while justice
of the Supreme Court, mid permit the organisa
tion to run as It would without his control.
This was the burden of his speech One other
point caused an unhappy start to Charlfa F.
Murphy. The candidate declared that he would
use his influence to secure the passage of laws
permitting more rather than less Independent
nominations. At this declaration the Tammany
leader sat bolt upright and took notice. He also
| pledged himself to attempt to secure the repeal
of the Raines law.
The enthusiastic greeting that Albany was to
rive Its -itlzen. It* ea-Judge-Bos*. was strongly
missing, ami streets that were to be decorated
were Innocent of anything but Republican ban
ners. Cltlsens who were expected to be vocif
erous stood and watched the preliminary pro
cession with a silence that was Striking. Not
even the Albany Demo*-- hosts, wearing silk
hats of a vintage *t Vast as ancient as that of
the rule of Judge-Boss Herrlck and marshalled
by McCabe and Wood, won any plaudits. The
Albany contribution was silence, but when the
hall was reached Tammany and Brooklyn lead
ers alike vied with each other In earspllttlnn
tumult. The preliminary procession formed at
the railroad station and marched to th** rooms .
of Judge Herrtck at City Hall, after It 'had been '
reinforced by the Tammany and Brooklyn co
horts, which came on a special train. Her*, I
awaiting them In the square, they found three
carriages, the first containing ex-Senator Hill,
Justice Herrick, Francis Burton Harrison and
Cord Meyer.
The line of march was again taken up and the
column moved on to Odd Fellows' Hall, the scene
of the exercises. This narrow hall was soon
filled to suffocation with Tammany and Brook- j
lyn politicians and a fair sprinkling of citizens
of Albany, largely made up of the McCabe- ;
Wood "heelers." It was 1 o'clock when the pro
cession of platform guests, headed, of course, by ;
ex-Senator David B. Hill and his lieutenant.
Elliot Danforth. filed on to the platform, and ,
Tammany and the McCarrenttea conducted a i
cheering contest. In the midst of this an ex- j
plosion of powder, the work of a photographer, ;
who used an overcharge, filled the hall with !
thick whit.- ?moke, utmost hiding the candidate* j
and platform guests from view and silencing !
the cheers. Under cover of this smoke. Profes- ;
sor Duncan Campbell Lee. preceded by the rne-lc
and apologetic State chairman, Cord Meyer, !
trotted to the front of the platform and began
to recite his speech.
Tills recitation was more amusing than im- i
pressive. Mr. Lee was almost hysterical In his ;
manner at times when he attempted 10 discuss j
Republican candidate*. When he began to ad- j
dress Judge Herrlck the candidate arose, to be '
Instantly invited by the speaker to sit down. It
was apparent that the professor feared his \
Speech would be cut short. Speaking his piece j
with a ;lorld manner that created no little (
amusement Professor Lee kept the candidate '
in suspense for at least half an hour. All this ■
time Ju-lge Herrlck sat silent, impassive, his !
face entirely expressionless, looking Into space, j
without ever a side glance at ex-Senator Hill, j
who untiled patronizingly about him.
As usual in Democratic gatherings of the pres- >
••lit campaign, the national candidate was Ig- j
nored. He received a complimentary hand on !
the first mention. The hr.nd attempted to swell
this with a patriotic anthem, but merely sue- j
ceeded in drowning the faint applause. What ;
enthusiasm there was did not arise from any
worship of Parker, and it was apparent then and
in comments afterward that the leaders present .
had already given up hope of carrying the State '
for the national candidate, and were directing
their energies to the State campaign.
When Mr. Lee had finally ceased haranguing >
Herrick he subsided, and amid general cheer
ing the. Judge- Boss came forward, unfolded his
manuscript, deliberated, applied his glasses and
began to read In a voice that was clear and in
cisive. His speech was frequently > Interrupted
by applause. J-ostlce Herrick said:
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen: I thank you and
those you ■•■•■lit mo.-t sincerely for the very
distinguished honor that has been conferred upon
me. While it Is not the one I sought, yet It come.* I
to me In such a way that I regard th« numinous of I
ii>e convention as a c>i:nn>ai.>T. Coming to me so I
unexpectedly. It found me In the midst of labors i
that I could not shirk, and the proper discharge of '
my public duties ha < left mo no time to prepare any !
elaborate address for this occasion. Fortunately. I
iiowever, Itie platforms of principled adopted it our
national and State conventions, and the -splendid
letter of acceptance of our Presidential candidate,
formerly the gi eat cMef Judge of our State, make It i
unnecessary for me at this time to make any extend- j
ed statement, even If I had had the time to prepare
one. Neither shall I In the future devote any time I
or labor to the, preparation of any formal letter of
acceptance. What 1 have to say In this campaign
will be, where th* people and 1 can look each other
In the eyes and know and understand each other
by personal contact and communication.
If elected, my first duty will be to th« people, and
not to the party. Th« best service I can rtnrler trio

their act by giving to the Bute an honest and em-<
cient administration of its laws.

of th<» whole party and treat all Its members
It "is the natural tendency of a. party lons In
power to v ■>cnrr>*' extravagant »nd corrupt, so. too,
there is a natural tendency for the leader* or a
lons successful political machine to become arbi
trary and dictatorial. and in these commercial
days to make merchandise of the people's rights
and use the positions of power in which their party
has placed them to enrich themselves at the ex
pense of the people. In such cases the greatest
service that a party man. truly loyal to the prin
ciples of his party, can render « Is to bring about
its temporary overthrow, that such leaders may be
.1! placed and the party crgßnJKttlon made b« ter.
purer and stronger by the chastening of its friends.
To-day It is undoubtedly the fact that there is a
widespread reding in the State that many of its

When the nppiause that greeted Judge Her

I thank you for the honor you have done me,
and througn you I thank the Democratic State
Convention. My nomination is the result of a
harmonious convention. No gall and bitterness
survive those scenes at Saratoga. Democrats
everywhere are united and eager for the contest.
It is not often that a candidate la named at our
State conventions from the County of New-York.
That you have done so now exemplifies the har
mony within oar party. The good will through
which this came about Is born of the Integrity,
efficiency and triumphant success of the present
Democratic administration of New- York City. Our
convention has given preferment to the young
Democracy of the State. Honorable and dignified
positions nave beef) offered to two representatives
«>f the younger party workers. The convention has
thereby thrown open ; young men everywhere the
door of opportunity. ion Is an age of young men.
The Democratic party welcomes' them to Its coun
cil.- and Intrusts them with the administration of
It-* affairs. Mi»n> of our young 'men. born with a
heritage of Democracy, have, however, strayed In
recent years from the historic party of their
fathers, But a change has come. The blood of
Democracy hi now stir; within them. They will
return to us. Wit}- on. accord they will m-knowl

American citizenship and of American manhood 1.,
our candidate for the Presidency— Alton 11. Parker.
Our convention has franMd for us the Issues of
this Siute campaign. It. the platform .ire set forth
the opinions of a united Democracy. Solemnly and
with Justice we have arraigned the present govern
in- ut of our State. Our opponents now s«-*k the
perpetuation of thai government agulnst which so
many of their party are In revolt. In order to
secure v return to frugal ami honest administra
tion of public .iff .ins we have nominated for Oov
ernor a man long tried and long .'!-tlntul.ih^d in
the service of our Stute. His independence and
rugged honest) have raised him ••four squares to
ill the wln<l» that blow." Such !s our leader— D
Cady Herrlck. o' Alutiiiy. .
A question of the gravest concern <s the con
struction of the enlarged canal. The people have
decided at the poll* that the canal shall be en
larged, and they now have an opportunity to de
termine who -hall have charge of that vast public
enterprise. They are to decide whether they will
perpetuate the control of that undertaking in hands
which have already, upon a similar project, ex
pended nine millions of our money no extravagant
ly. so shamelessly and so cynically as to earn the
universal condemnation of the whole people
Mr. Chairman, in accepting the nomination for
Lieutenant Governor I nccept the full measure of
responsibility it bring* to me. If elected. I shall
tilt as a member of the Canal Board. I shall not
tolerate the expenditure of the people's money for
th* excavation of imaginary rock*, nor -'lall I nd
vocate the appointment of unnecessary and unde-
Mruble canal officials. I pledge myself to uncrat
ing vigilance in the protection of the taxpayers'
money. But. moreover. I pledge myself to use
every effort to expose the wrongdoer and aid In
bringing the offender to the bar of public justice
The cheering for Harrison was lead by Her
rick, who produced a big white handkerchief
and waved it slowly above his head' twice.
When this demonstration had ended Professor

of the nominee?. In discussing Assemblyman
Pallace. he seemed to find great difficulty in de
ciding whether he was "a prophet not without
honor"; "not a prophet with honor." or "a
prophet with no honor In his own city." He
finally decided on the last, after trying all three.
Then he touched up Attorney General Cunneen
in a few collegiate, phrases and gave- way to
At the outset the Attorney General spoke so
low as to make it Impossible for those in the
rear to heir him. As he continued he warmed
up, waved hi«» lists, shouted and stamped,
etopped reading his copy nnd went on hy
memory. When he finished, breathless and
punting. he received a cheer.

the remainder of the State ticket, accepted the
nominations, and pledged active co-operation in
