' Hon meeting in the old Wigwam Uat nlgbt
The wholo front of the rod building In Four
teenth street was festooned with flans and
, brilliant bunting, and on enoh eldo of tho main
entrance woro stands for tho speakers at the
outside mooting. Thoro was a sturdy offort on
tho part of those Inside to put as much flro into
the campaign as possible, and tho band up in
the gallery was cheered quito as liberalises
j the epeekors.
I It was a long sosslon. boclnnlnc at 8 and not
ending until after 11. All of tho old war horses
were on the platform whon l'ollco Justice Gor
man stopped forward and introduced Mr. J.
Hdtrard Simmons or Chslrmai. Mr. Simmons
; got an oxtra nllowanco of choers and a final
"Hlp-plp-hoorayl" and thon ho said ho was
grateful for tho privilege extended to him in
being permlttod to proslde ovor tho delibera
tions of " tho loyal Democracy." This senti
ment was acceptod with a nod of approvol br
l Mr. Crokor and Mr. Gllroy and Bhlrt Collar
I Bplnola and Kecordor bniyth.
Mr. Simmons snoko of the significance of tho
ticket presented by tho opponents of Tam
many II all. and derided it as an infamous coall
tlou of the onemlos of tho true Democracy of
the city and State But Tammany Hall, ho
said, was thoroughly nlho to tho lssuo and
would win a victory on Tuesday next that
would bo heard of in the far-off corners of tho
L country.
y John McOoldrioh. in mellifluous tones, read
tho names of n couplo of hundred Vlce-Presl-donts,
and resolutions went brought out and
read to the 2 000 auditors. Thoyentd that tho
Domoarocy of tho city und county of Now York
had assembled in Tammany Hall to ratify and
endorse the nominees of tho Democratic party
for Btate and municipal ofllces and for the Ju

the resolutions donounce to public reprobation

I the embarranment and hoitlllty which would rrenlt
from theeuocesa of the plot whlou hae been batched br
bit enemlee within and without tho Democratic party.
The sockdolagor was In tho last clause whon
tho Democratio voters of tbe city wore urgod
to scrutlnlzo tho ballots they receive on eleo
tlonday. "that their vigilance may defeat the
attempt ot tho Platt-Powor deal to rob thorn
of their suOrageB by decoptlon and mlsropre
H sontatlon." . ...
I I All of thoso sentiments wero gladly received
by the mooting at large, and Mr. llourke Coek
rnn got the welcome that his fellow Indians
always oxtend to blm. When he began with
the statement that there Is within the city but
one Demoorntlo organization, there wero
cheers of delight lie spoko of the citizens'
tlokft as a plot to subvert tbe administration
of Gov. Bill and an attempt to overthrow Hugh
J. Grant
It was a ticket, ho was very emphatic, that
sad been put up in a spirit of revenge as one
motive and a lust f or orlice as tho other. All
this had but one object, tbe desire tor more
9999 contracts and the return or the " suporin
eumbent weight of Tom Costlgan." Mr. Clock
ran was convinced that the citizens' tleket was a
", blind to sell the rotors Jn this city like sheep in
J the shambles to tbe Republican party. Then,
by contrast, ho told ot Tammany and her am
bitions. The mere victory of this organization
in this fight was not all that tbey struggled
lor. he said. It was for this organization to
save the party for tbe future, and especially
lust at this tlmo to uphold tho hands of "that
type of militant Domocraoy that sits In the
Governor's chair." Mr. Cockrnn aseertod that
the citizens' ticket was but a blind torn plot
whose aim was tho destruction of Gov. Sill's
future.
. "A fragment ot an organization calling itself
Democratic" continued Mr. Cookran. " has at
tempted to create dlf senslons In this city. This
year In nfty-nlnu countlos there is a hopeful
I Democracy. In the other county, right here at
our doors, there is dissension, and an attempt
to hand ovor victory to the Uepubllcan party.
What is the reason advanced for this ? To curb

"this Is a temple of freedom and of liberty I

is not upon this building nor upon us that tbe
assault Is committed, but It is an assault upon
the pooplowho hate given us the power."
Tammany mado promises n year ago. Tbe
people were now talking about Tammany's
performances. Mayor Qrunt. who entered an
offlco which had proved a political graeyard
for bis predecessors, now stood before New
Vorkeis to be judged by hlsactn. The audi
ence was too Intollgent not to know of
the pure and honest and upright admin
istration given to tbe people by Mayor Grant.
The record of Tammnny for n Tear, so Mr.
Cock ran said, bad beon a record of model
municipal departments, and all the oblef
? laces are hold by Tammany." Lven the New
ork lnbune admitted only two weoks ago that

Cooper Institute last ovoning was all inside

and tho chill gray fog wero not tho proper ac
cessories for any outdoor enthusiasm. To bo

theyllghtod up tho sceno they did not warm
up tbe atmosphere. Bo the crowd was all down
In tbe ball, where Dame's sounding brass
made merry molodlos to while nwaythe tlmo
while the machinery ot the meeting was but In

Henry It. Doekman called the meeting to or
dor, and nominated Wheeler H, Feckbatn for
Chairman. Mr. Peckhnm wasgrcoted with ap
plause, and expressed bis thanks bofore saying :
I understand that this Is a meeting of tha County De
mocracy for tbe purpose of ratlYrlng the nominations
made by the conrentlons ot that org anlxaUon, Also, of
course, for the purpose of ratifying the nominations of
tha Democratio State Convention tor Stat officers.
Then bar been some who hare thought that a Demo
crate the County Democracy conld hardly en
dorse a ticket upon which were found the
names ot Republican candidates. But I think
that they who hesitated to follow that
course wero not mlndfnl of tbe fact that political die

Mr. Fdckbam concluded by saying that the

he said, "are men who are detormlcSd to havo

district he bad heard ot $4,200 being appor
tioned to "hire workers," as It Is called at the
polls.
While Secretary Mulrjueen read the lists of
Vlco-Cbalrmen and Secretaries and the reso
lutions, tho bouse called for Col. Fellows. Tho
resolutions endorsed tbo Democratic Httto
ticket, and tho nominations of its own County
Convention, saying:
Ther were selected for their capacity. Integrity, and
especial fitness for the performance of the duties of the
omcea for which tbey bar been named, and are
pledged to no other service than that ot the public
Tby are alao commanded to tbe suffragea of the peo-

Tammany Hall, the keystone of whose structure Is the
reverse of this essential principle of good government,
lu opposition to the vicious exerolae of political power,
wblcti this Illustrate!, and which foreshadows a future
of peril to this city, should the power of the Tammany
organization be fnrther increased and solldined bv suo
csss at the polls, we earnestly commend to th roters of
this city tbesnonort of the ticket wo hare nominated

declaration of the principles upon which we aland.
The resolutions were adopted, and then Col.
Follows was Introduced nnd boartlly wel

not onterlng into local mnttors, and paid some
attention to the Countr ticket, euloslzlng Mr.

Col. Fellows concluded with remarks on bal

II L. Abbett scored Tammany indirectly by
saying:
Our past Is secure. No national or Slate candidate
.endorse I by th County Democracy ever suspected It of
treachery. We do not win local triumphs when the con
trol of the nation Is lost to Dsmocracy
He said that on the tlckot which ther wero
ratlfylncthe only politically important olflco
was that ot President of the Hoard of Alder
men, for which a Deraoarnt Is named, tho
others being judicial tnd ministerial, let it Is
charged thut It was nominated with the design
or ruining the Democratic party. He eulogized
the County Democracy lenders and compared
the contest with tho bnttlo of an nnuy where
victory Is won by lndltldual effort ana courage
and honest and Intelligent obedience to tbe
lenders, which In this case are ot the army's
selection.
After a parting tune, "The Btar Bpangled

Tho light in the Sixth Senate district Is
one of the hot ones in this campaign. Tarn
macy is going it strong for Grady, and It looks
as though John F. Ahearn's candldncy Is
bothering them oonsidorably. Tho County
Democrats say that tbe Follee and Ex
cise Departments are being used in
the fight so strongly . that very few
liquor dealers dare to keep Ahearn's posters in
their windows. On Wednesday night they
oomplain, a meeting of llnuor dealers was
railed at the houBe of Excise Commissioner
FlUpatrlck. and everybody was given plainly
to understand that votes and work for Grady
would smooth tbe path to lloense and liberty.
At a meeting ot the Joirert-on club last even

Gov. lllll waa bo much better yostordny
that his friends now share tbe confidence bo
has all alojig felt that he will be able to koep
his engagement and spoak at the big Demo
cratio mass meeting In Brooklyn to-night He
continued nominally under the treatment of
Dr. Bryant yesterday, but that treatmont con
sisted mainly ot watchfulness on the part of
tho Dootor that the patient should not do any
more talking than was absolutely nocossary.
Itost for the throat waa regardod as tho most
important feature of the offort tohao the Gov
ernor on hand at to-nlcht's meotinc That
nlono would hnto boen sufficient to keep tbe
Governor away from either Tammany Hall or
Coopor Union Inst night. Tho woathor made
his attendance impossible, and it is perhaps
pot difficult to bollevo that tho political
weather is so thick that tho Governor did not
caro to go to either meeting. Ho would hare
boen wetcomod at both meetings, -but bv
would havo been most vociferously welcomed
at either ono If ho did not go to the other.
Tho Democratio Slato Executive Commltteo
were very much gratified yosterday by the
nows from tho Wostche stor Bonate district
Tho gen oral aspect ot tho Btato campaign is
onough to keep tho Hoffman Houbo statosmon
in good spirits. But this district's favorable
look Is an added cause of glee because the light
was at ono time thought to bo desperate. This
was owing to tho impression hold In some
Quarters that tbo canvass ot tho Domocratlo
candidate. Henry C. Nelson, was likely to really
help Judge ltobortson by making his race easy.
Tho fact Is that ex-Uenator Nelson Is making a
most vigorous fight, ono of tho most, 11 not tha
most energetlo eer mado In the district. This
and tho fact that the dlstriet Is normally Dem
ocratio by, about 2,000 Is sufficient to make the
outlook what it should bo. Added to this Is the
furtbor fact that the party Is solidly in
line. Assemblyman Demarostof Ilockland.who
was a strong candidate tor the Benato nomina
tion In n lively convention, has got his coat oil
and is bard at work. He wrltos to tho Utate
Committoe that Dockland will sire a good ac

A conspicuous callorat tho Statehendquartcrs
was l'ollco Commissioner Yoorhls, who seemed
to desire It to be known that his attitude on
the fusion ticket does not keep him from being
solid on tbo Stnto fssuos.
Charles H. Turner, tho bright young man
whom tho dulnoss in the loo business permits
to run for Honator In tho Eighth district as a
Tammany candidate, proposes to make his
short campaign lively and interesting. His
opponents. Nelson J. Watorbury. Jr.. the
County Democracy man. and Llspenard Stew
art, ibe swell Uepubllcan, bad such n start In
tho raoo that they got nil tho ash barrels
placarded and all the window printing show
stands occupied. Bo Mr. Turner has hit upon
tho detice ot making himself known to the
oters of tho thickly populated part of the west
side which is Included In tbe boundaries ot tbe
Eighth Benato disiriot by a method that Is very
Eopulnr and appropriate in more sparsely in
ablted regions.
He has challenged hjs opponents to n joint
discussion of tbe subject bow the next Sena
tor from the Eighth can best servo bis constit
uents and the Interests ot tho district The
time is rather short to arrange for suoh a com
petitive exhibition ot candidates, but it would
bo an occasion fraugbtwltn more interest tnan
has yet distinguished any single lnoldent of
this campaign ot tbe pen and the typewriter.
It would save the city political canvass from
becoming, like a modom prize fight mostly a
matter of literature.
Tho Eighth Senate district gives the Demo
orats a fighting chance, thougn Cornelius Van
Cott carried it for tbo ltopublicans two years
ago. Tho, combination by which this was
dono can hardly bo mado again. The liquor
interests were solid for Van Cott. nnd the fact
that Goorge It. Doane, Jr.. was running for
Civil Justice at the samo time strengthened
Van Cott materially. Mr. Btewart, with two
Demoorats dividing the votes against blm. has
orory assurance ot an oasy race. But at tbe
same time there Is no more Interesting raoe
hereabout than that between tbe lawyer, the
capitalist and the iceman from Columbia
College.
The Republicans ot tho Fifth Sennto district

Assistant Dlstriet Attorney Edward Grosse,
who is at tbe head of the anti-Tammany fac
tion of tho German Democracy, said lost night
that the organizations ot the Fourth nnd

that several others are sure to follow their ox
ample. An Interesting campaign meeting will bo
bold in the Bleeoker building at fileecker and
Morton streets to-night. It is to be a ratifica

Many of them In that neighborhood will not go

CONFIDENT BUOOKLTN DEMOCRATS.
Tbey 'Will Celebrate Their Expected "Vic
tory at To-olsht'a Sleeting;.
The united Democracy of Brooklyn Is
winding up the campaign In fine form. The
reports received at the Wllloughby street head
quarters yesterday from tbe various districts
were all favorable. The strateglo assaults
made by the Jlepubllean managers on some
parts ot tbe Democratio line havo apparently
caused no breaks, and it is proposed to make
tbe meeting at the Academy of Musto to-night
a celebration in advance of a victory already
assured.
Every night since his nomination, Alfred a
Cliapln has made three orfour speeches in dif
ferent parts of the olty, and his nppeals have
beon so forcible and eloquent that even bitter
Republican partisans have bssn unable to re
press their admiration. His most notable ad
dress last night was before a big assemblage
of worklngmen at the Clermont Avenue lllnk.
Tbe meeting was under tho joint direction
of representatives, ot District Assemblies
Nos. 76 and 220. and .of the Central
Labor Dnlon. Blmon Harrow presided,
and named Attorney-General Tabor,
Comptroller WemDle. Mayor Chapln, nnd Dis
trict Attorney 'ltldgwoy an especially worthy of
the support of worklpgmen. It was by Mr.
Chapln s stand In the Legislature, be ald.that
tho first great Impetus was given to Ibe move
mont for tbe abolishment of contract labor In
tho State prisons. He also pralaad Mr. llldg
way as a stanch friend of the workltisman
hecrotnry llclllhsn lead letlors from Gov.
Hill. Attoruey-aeneral Tabor, and Comptroller
Ytemple expressing their regret at not being
able to attend. Gov, Hill referred to Mr.
Cbspln aa," tbe eteadfaatand consistent frieud
of the wnrklngman. as a member of the Legis
lature, as Speaker, as Comptroller, ana as
Mayor of Brooklyn.'' ,
On entering the ball Mr. Chapln was received
VTltb ringing cbttra Uo ealtl Hut tho Idea bo-
hind organization and cooperation was that no
man should be trodden down or emitted down
unjustly. It was an idoa whloh sboold be pro
moted. The old Idea which prevailed was that
each ono should struggle forhlmself and " the
devil take the hindmost" xhls,wasahnrsh
sort of doctrine, ns i thcrel was always some
one who had to full into the, clutches
of the devil. Such n role could cot be applied
without serious damage to the individual and
the community. Through the lesson taught
by labor organizations and corporations, they
hadoometoseo that the wisor rule was to 1st
men march abreast as mnoh as nosaible.
Mr. Lhapln said he had endeavorod to apply
theprlnclploot cooperation and oigsnlratlon
In the administration of Brooklyn's affairs for
the past two years. He found the city In an
uneven state of development Tbe cltr, had
not supplied Itself with those things which tbo
people should reasonably expoct It to havo.
Alter careful study, he hadconoluded that the
best method was to give up tbo old piecemeal
system of det elopment and vast Improvements
wore prolectod, the stiro foundation for suob a
scheme bolng found in the gonornl oredlt nnd
financial strength of tbe city, whloh has grown
greatly by tho united labor of .Kb cltlrons. It
was a most gratifying fact, that most nf tho
t00,000.0O0doposlted in tho savings banks be
longed to tho worklngmen and working women
ot the olty.
At tbo close of his speech Mr. Chopin was
again loudly choorod.

The Version of the 'fontlon" la the
Only One That la Not Hearsay.
Bourlto Cockrnn'p oratorical assertion that
Justloe Maurice J. Power, tho leader ot tho
County Democracy, bad "confessod with his
own lips " to a mombor of the State Executive
Committoe that he was so tied up In a deal that
ho could not got out was tbe culmination ot a
story that was afloat all tho afternoon-
The "confesslpn," It was alleged, was
madeby Mr. Power in explanation ot bis re
fusal to accede to the request of tho Btato Ex
ecutive Committee that tbo factions should
harmonize, in tho Eighth Senate district espe
cially, with a view ot gaining a Benator for the
Democracy. Mr. Power saw Chairman Griffin
ot the Executive Committee on Wednesday
night on tho subject nt the Hoffman House.
Mr, QrifTen absolutely refused to affirm or
deny to a Bun report or tbo truth of the story.
He said bo was not in the position of Chairman
of tho State Executive Committee for the pur
pose of dtsonsslng the confidences that enmo
to him as such.
Chamberlain Croker. who occupies In Tam
many the samo position that Justlco Power
does in tho Counties, and is his vlnorons oo
ponent everywhere. Is not so particular. Ho
authorized tno ntntamant thnt Chairman flrif
Ion told him that Mr. Power had made such a
oonfOKBlon.
Justloe Power was half amused at tbo story"
at first nnd then wholly indignant The story
of his "confession" hedeolsred was utterly
ridiculous and foundod on misrepresentation.
Tbe only words that he had used in his con
vorentlon with Mr. Griffin that would ovon re
motely bear out such a construction were : " It
Is too late a day. No change can now be made.
Things have gone too far and the complica
tions are too great." In using these words
Justice Power said that he bad nothing fur
ther in his mind than tho attitude of Tam
many In tbe matter, the complications having
arisen entirely out ot bor insulting arrogance.

Topeka, Oct. 31. Adjutant-Goneral Rob

General at once ordered out Company G ot tho
Third Regiment at Marysvllle. and left on the

Axtell is a town of about 700 peoplo, and la
settled targoly by Catholics. On Wednesday a
Methodist -minister, nomad Johnson, from the
astern part of the State, arrlvod at Axtell to
hold a revival meeting. He had quite 'a largo
congregation In tho ovening at tho Mothodlst
cburoh, and in the nndience were a number ot
Catholics. Soon after beginning his remarks
tho minister began an attack upon the Catbollo
Church. He became so abusive that ono of the
Catholics present called him a liar. He con
tinued his remarks until tbe Catholics could
stand It no longer.
Four of them rushed to tbe pulpit, and tak
ing tho preacher by the collar threw him Jown.
In a moment tho pulpit was surrounded by an
angry mob. and a general row ensued. Al
though the Catholics were In the minority, they
were too much for tha Methodists, and suo
oeeded In throwing the preacher and two
others out ot the house. The whole town was
soon aroused. Four Catholics wero arrested
and put In the city prison.
This so enraged theCatholIo population that
tbey organized this morning to assist their Im
prisoned associates. Tbe town ot 8t Bridget,
a few mllos distant. Is settlod entirely by Cath
olics, and It Ib reported that the whole town Is
organizing to go to the rosoue ot tbe Axtoll
Cat hoi Ion. Tho Mayor says he la powerless to
control the mob and -fears a conflict between
the tvf o elements. Tho Adjutant-General will
not roach the town until 0 o'olock this evening.

Among; tho reports of tho Hydrographio
Bureau for October Is tbo following remarkable
account ot a waterspout by Chief Officer Callo
way of the American steamship Santiago:
" On the 20th day ot April, 1889, at about 6:30
A. M Itovnl Island (ono of tbe Bahamas) bore
about soutb, distant four mllos : wind light from
south-southeast, woather partly cloudy. Ob
served a watoispout forming off the starboard
bow (ship heading southwest) and moving lu
direction ot stoamer at an anglo of tbroo points.
On nccount of Its close proximity, was about
to steer oloar of it when I observed
it breaking, about thirty yards from tho ship,
mmedlately nfterwnrd tho steamer passed
through the outer edge of the whirlpool, tbe
diameter ot which I should judgo to hao boon
about fifty to seventy yards. On passing
through the outer edge 1 observed that the
contro was hollow, the water circling from
west to oast, or against the sun. Tbe water
that fell on deck was vory aalt. nnd the drops
as largo as a 50-cont piece. During tbo few
seconds of our passage through It the wind
blew at the rate) of about thirty or thirty-five
miles per hour. I did not observe any calm in
tbe centra at all, the water arising from tt ro
sembllng an Inverted fountain. After clear
ing it tbo wind resumed Its original
force, about fifteen miles per hour.
Being the officer , of tho watch. I had
little time lo observe tbe barometer,
but it fluctuatod one or two hundredths, and
then resumed its previous reading. Tbo olouds
abovo and around tbe spout wore very racgod
and much disturbed, similar to thoso In a
thunder storm ; tholr motions wore very rapid,
ascondlng.deBcendtng, and broaklngaway from

into them. The water wan whirling very rap
idly for several minutes after tho break, show
tng what tremendous olrcular force there must

through It the steering of tbe ship was not
affected, so that If there wero any current at
