Oct. 1. The war in the cotton trade begins to-day. In the present temper of the masters there is consider ; able risk that, once the conflict is i entered on. a move will be made to tear ; up ail settlements and put the opera tives back to the position which they occupied before the Brooklands agree ; ment was signed. This would provoke a tremendous fight and would cause great ; bitterness. An abrogation of the Brooklands treaty would be rightly regarded ns a calamity, for it has kept the peace be tween Employers and employed for seventeen years. Moreover, in the view of Mr. Macara. the president of the Cot ton Spinners' Federation, the arrange ment under which capital and labor worked has afforded such security for the cotton Industry that it alone ren dered possible iii« enormous increase in the volume of trade, and except for this arrangement, Mr. Macars thinks. «.?reat Britain would have lost a large portion of the industry, which now. after sup plying home requirements, contributes a third of the total of exports In manu factured rood". While the number of persons who are thrown out of work hi the seven hun dred miles phut down to-day is roughly estimated at I.V).O<V», these laborers will soon be joined by others whose employ ment «annot long so on without the card room hands. Jf a strike should continue for a few wprhs i? is probable that a million em ployes would be affected, and that the Lancashire trade would be paralysed.

Mr. roles made public to-night a letter from Bauckney to his wife,' which was found beside his body when he shot him self. The letter directs her to assign certain property to Mr. Lewis, saying" that it will more than pay for his (Bauckney*s) share in what he calls the "contemptible deal." The letter said in one place: "I cannot bear to meet my frier.ds since the discovery of treachery by one whom 1 supposed was my closest friend, and since his confession to me of about ten days ago: it has almost set me crazy. There Is nothing left but going beyond the vale." The money was secured by taking the Btuba from back tax Mils, keeping the stubs and marking the bills paid in the book. In this manner there was n<> means of knowing that there was a dis crepancy. as the book could not be checked by the sMpB. The men kept the ■ftps, and this afternoon when Rapelyea, who was fast becoming a nervous wreck. made hip confession, he turned them in. Wanted to Clear Lewis. Rapetyea in his confession said that he made it more to clear Charles F. Lewis, the county treasurer, from any cloud that might hover over him as a result of Baii'-kney's death than with any idea of making it easier for him ■elf. Rapelyea said that Mr. Lewis was entirely innocent of any knowledge in the affair In the presence of County Treasurer Lewis. Sheriff Joseph Foster. District Attorney Coles. Edward Downing and 1...

Rapelyea said that he was going to try to make what restitution he could and suffer whatever punishment was coming to him. He has been going about in a fine automobile for the last few months and has been seen at differ ent times at the Hotel Nassau, at Ix.ni? Ueach. where he spent money with great liberality. On the other hand, Mr. Bauckney was very quiet in his habits. He had a motor boat on the Great South Bay and devoted himself to that to the exclusion of everything else In the summer time.

"I said I would give them an upstate candidate, and I've done it." was Mr. Murphy's comment on the nomination after the convention adjourned. Mainly on account of his office as state chairman, hut for personal reasons also. Mr. Dix stood out aealnst the wishes of the leaders until after the time set to night for the concluding session of the convention. When he had once accepted the offer of nomination the rest of the ticket took only two hours to arrange. Although the fight of Congressman Sulzer for the nomination for Governor came near getting the convention into a riot and prevented the completion of th» ticket by midnight, the slate had been passed around in advance and the dele gates knew what was coming.

I belong to that race described by the gentle Irving as living in houses standing with the gable toward the street, and ambitious only to measure MX feet five inches around the waist and five feet six inches around the head. In that respect you will observe that ! differ from im distinguished fellow citizen of Dutch descent who lives In Oyster Bay. and who apparently is anxious to measure five feet six Inches around the waist and fix feet five Inches around the head. We have got a bitter fight ahead of us. Do not for«et this one moment We have a fight against a man the most marvellous product that the world has seen.

(Applause.) I nay. let's fight him now on this proposi tion. It is the moment: and if you think we have got. as I do. an honest platform which measures up to our party. let us give the country an honest, "sincere man who measures up to the platform, and then let us go out and fight wttti him. When Mr. Van Santvoord reached th« name of John A. Dix the crowd rose like one man wfth a wild cheer.
