I r m re was a large and s)mpatb,rtlc nudlenco H , - gallery, nnd they joined with the dele I gitis in cheering the oung luwjer. 'Die dtC'iirntions of Mr. Hhcrnrd will lme tho fiti i of still furthor widening the btench In the Ih mix ratio ranks 'in Kings county nnd put an i nd to nil further talk of linriuon) . Mr Shepard frankly admitted tlmt they could nut ignore the fact that the Democratic sky wns Bit perfectly clear, either In .Htitto or county. They was confronted with sumo perplexities and nnxlotlca. As far as tho national situation, however, were tonccrnwl. they have nil agreed In supporting the President and the House of Rtpresentatttes, to make good tho pledges giTtn at the Chicago Cniclition, nnd In c 'iidcmnlng tho t nitron of n few rco riant Senators. Tho llrst duty of the Iiemucrac) of the Stato is to bn In full s)mpathy with (Jrorer I'lot eland and the Democratic House of Heprcsentalltos. F.ten tho Wilson till, aa passed In tho Gorman edition, Is In finitely preferable to tho McKlnley Bjstcm of taxi IT. JLsto the local situation, Mr. fehepard said It was proposed to scud it complete delegation lu thu Saratoga Convention, w hlch ho huicd w nuld rebuke tho sstematlc proscription of Demo crat", tin abuse of prlumrios, and audacious trilling by notorious nominations, llu hopeil that they would be nblo to support. lo). aily and warmly what tho Contention should do. When they came down to their own county affairs. Mr. Shepard said, their difficulties anil perplexities Increased. They must, however, continue to stand on the same platform they did In 1NU3, when It was found necessary to ilefent Mayor lloody In the Interest of honest politics and the welfare at the city. " We will kep on," Mr. Shepard said, "a true and steady course. If others Join with us, well and good If we must do this sen Ice alone, then tino well and good. We will keen the rudder true and trust the result to the intelligence of I ltronlcl)n and Kings count). We propose on elei tlnn day to stand up and bo counted. I. mid cheers.) llere Is represented the genuine and i nly Democracy of this county. If nursertkta are not appreciated by the people, then we can wisely turn our energies In other directions." Mr. Hhenard declared tliut It wns astonishing folly on the part of thu old organization to try and cut them oil from participation In the alec tlnn patronage. They would not tie ready for imy conference with the old organization until their unfortunate and unlearning lirethrcn hid ? liven some undoubted proof of deferenco to tho e-sous of 1H0.I. There wns another outhurst of applatue when Mr. Shepard declared that they would make nominations for all the offices to bo competed for In Uie city and count), from highest to lowest. Tho report of the Executive Committee calling the primaries for Sept. IN and the Assembly Contention for tho Ulst wns approted. Three delegates will be chosen nt each of tho elghteiu Assembly districts to the Saratoga Contention and one delegate to the Judiciary Convention, at which a:Supreme Court Justice In place of Justice Culleii Is to be nominated.

Tho Young Men's Democratic Club, which Mr. Hhepard has not been nblo so fnr to Include in In-, ruction, nlso met last night.

Millions of dollars hate been sated to tho Gov ernment by tho Comptroller overruling tho de cisions of the auditors. Now the derision of an auditor is tobetnndoilnnl, nnd the check which tho Comptroller hnd tixm them Is to bo thrown off. Tlio-o who aru familiar with tho practice of tho Treasury Department recall n notable In etancoof thotnlue of tho Comptroller's check upon nn auditor. During tho first Administra tion of Mr. Clcteland a clerk In tho Third Audi tor's office, having chargo of old nrmy claims, put through a number of fraudu lent claims fur horecs supposed to have belonged to offlrers and killed during the late war. Ho forged the papers in the nses and realized something In the neighborhood of $1.00(1 up to the time he wns cletected In tho fraud by the Comptroller.

Mr. Ewart Is the Chairman nf the Democratic County Committee, and has been an antl-Clete-laud man for several inrs.

Including John Sabine Smith, Abraham (lrubr, George W, Wnninakcr, Co lumbus O, Johnson, nnd several other of the dis trict leaders. All of these gentlemen did not come to see Mr. Piatt, but all did desire to know what Is going on In Republican Stato polities, nnd they knew that the best way to get Information of that sort was In Mr. Plntt's neighborhood. Mr. Plntt siient half an hour In the corridor of the hotel talking with his friends, but It was noticeable, that )oungMr. Pasettot Klmlra had nothing to any to hint. Young Mr. Kassett has lieen sny lug things about Mr. Plntt of late, and hns not been doing much talking to him. In fact, friends of Levi P. Morton, who Is to lie nomi nated by tho Republicans ns their enn dldato for Got ernornt the Saratoga Com entlnn, declare that If Mr, Fnsett continues talking its he has ho Is likely to go to tho State Convention with only the six delegates of Chemung county behind lilm, although the delegates of Alle gany, Steuben, and ScliU) ler counties lint o also been Instructed to tote for him, The friends of Mr. Morton sny tint tho delegates from theo toiintles nniued desire to t ast a complimentary tnto for Mr. Fnssett, but expect otenlually to aslt In nominating Mr. Morton, and thet do not llko to hate their toung Klmlra friend Inti mate, ns he hn. that the Morton delegntes are creatures of it political boss. Mr. Fassttt had n friendly "run In" with ex Marshal Lou Pit) li last evening. Mr. Payn Is nn ardent supimrter of Mr. Morton, and be told Mr. Fnssett that Air. .Morton would hate S50 of tho 7.1'.' totts to lie cn-t on tho Mist ballot. "That Is the same old story wo hate heard twice before from ) oil. Lou." said Mr. tossett. "You told us on two occasions that the senti ment of the people was with Mr. .Morton, and that he couldn't be beaten for Senator. Some how or other the sentiment didn't materialize und Mr. Siorton was beaten Iwth times. Your talk Is wild. Morton won't hate 300 votes on the first ballot." "You're wrong," rejoined Payn. " There s no bluffing this time. It Isn't needed. .Mr. Morton has the sentiment and the totew, and he'll be nominated on the first ballot." John Sabine Smith was suppnfccd to be looking for tho Depew boom. He didn't find It at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and the delegates from the backwoods districts said that It had not been heard or seen In their neighborhood. Although Mr. Ilurlelgh of Whitehall Is talk ing so big about Judge Russell's chances of nomination, he tlld not seem to beat all In tils favor among the Morton adherents, who de clare that Ilurlelgls, Is nil right, and that the counties enumerated by hlru as sending Hns. sell delegates would roll up a good vote for Mr. Morton when tho time came. Ttio hope nf organizing n successful opposition to the nomination of .tlr. Morton seems to bavo died out In a great meaeure. The greatest difficulty encountered by tho gentlemen who w nuld organize such an opposition If thev could Is the Inability to dellt er the gotl. In the case of nearly every candldato other than Mr. Morton, with tho possible exception of Comptroller James A. Roberts, the delegates Instructed to vote for them hold Mr. Morton as their second choice. One of these candidates, speaking to a Sir." jeportcr concerning Mr. Fnssett's efforts to or ganize an anti-Morton demonstration, said: " Fnssett Is in a peculiar position. He got Into this tight supposing that ho conld work up enough sentiment for the young man who made such a brilliant but unsuccessful canvass In lHttl and stampede the Convention for himself. He overestimated his ability in that regard. He sides, conventions are seldom captured that way. The result Is that Faasett has no alter native except to came down as gracefully as ho canor stay where he Is and say things. He seems to have chosen tho latter course. It will do him no good. There Is no rhanee for ant nf us. Mr. Morton has the majority of the Con tention beyond n doubt." The local Republicans present last night were interested in discussing tne probable dlt islnn of the candidates of this county bs a result of tn da)'s primaries. A conservatlte Morton esti mate would si vp about 00 of the IS" delegates to lie i hosen ns fntonibleto Mr. Morton's candi date .

This makes an excel lent showing so far. as for many months past, with the single exception nf August last, at this time of the month expenditures have lieen sev eral million dollars in excess of receipts.
