On paper the Shepard forces have shown ft formidable host, ranging from 0,000 to 10,000, but Impartial observers of last nlsht's gathering! declared that not raoro than M.000 or 4.000 malcontent at the utmost dl-plnied Interest enough In tho movement to attend to their political duties at the primaries. A full ' r get of delegates to each of the eighteen Assem bly dtstrlot Conventions were reported to have been elected, and to-morrow night tho Assem bly Conventions will name tho fifty-four dele galea, Including himself, whom Mr. Hhepard de elm to accompany him to tho Saratoga Conven tion M claimants for tho seats set apart for tho representatives of tho Kings county Democracy.

Many of tho old ami expt- fl rienced leaders will Ik' on the ground for two or 1 thrco days before tho Conv cntlon to checkmate nr hostile missionary work, on tho part of Mr. Hhepard and his followers, but the delegation I for the most part will be mmlo up of new men I who have come to tho front In tho recent reor- t ganlzntlon process. , VJ The retirement of flov. Flower from tho field s a candidate for rcnomlnatlon caused murh discussion last night In both tho Democratic camps In llrookl n. Itotti the regulars and tho Shepnrdltes seemed tor once to agree with each oilier. Tlio general opinion Is that the Governor had pursued nwlso course under oil the circumstances, and that somehow n candi date would I found who would unite the De mocracy. Home of the regular Uadcrs were outspoken in faor of making .lustice W..I. Claynnr the standard bearer or of naming him for the Court of Appeals, hut the Hhepard men seemed to think that Justice (In)nor would re fuse any placo on the ticket.

HEItE'S A COMMITTEE OF TEX. fj To Represent Ike City C!ul aid Hake Ua for tke Heveaty's Deficiencies. The suspicion of some of the tlood Govern ment Club element of tho Tammany opposition that the Larocque-Schwab Committee of Sev enty may not succeed In thilr effort to secure the nomination of an acceptable fusion ticket ytni) further exemplified at a meeting of tho Kxccutivo Committee, of tho City Club held jestcrday in tho office of W. Baard Cutting, aa Nassau street. There were present, besides Sir. Cutting, John Jay Chapman, Frederic llronson, W. C. Quill er. J. Frederlo Kernochan, Edward Kelly, Doudlnot Keith, J, Noblo llaes, (leorgo L. Hives, James W. I'ryor, Uustav H.Schwnli, W. Uarris Itoome. H. W. O, Welling, and Prof. J. II. Van Amrlnge. Mr. Schwab was responsible fortho Committee of Seventy, but Mr. Itoome and others do not like jf. Its composition because of Its unrepresentative " character and the fact that so many Hepubllcan politicians are members. Accordingly they passed resolutions declaring that through the Qood Government Club organization the work of securing permanent good gov ernment for the city can best be carried on, and providing for the appointment of a committee of ten members who are not dele gates to the Good Government Clubs or mem liers of the Committee of Seventy. President Carter and Vice-President Cutting are to bo members, and the committee will have power "to act for tho club to such an extent as tho committee shall think ad isable in furthering the election of candidates who honestly rcpre tent the principles advocated by the club." Tho commltteo will call a special meeting of tho club. Another resolution was adopted expressing hearty sympathy wit b. "thoexprcssed purposes" of the Committee of Seventy, but there was no expression of confidence In that committee. TUB TAMXtAXY nET.EOATIOX To lie Made Up or Representative Demo crats Whom tka Whole Party Can Hap port. ) One thing which can bo depended upon In con nection with the coming State Convention of the Democracy Is that the delegation which w 111 go from this city will bo composed of men who nre thoroughly representative of tho Democracy of New York county. It has been the latter-day policy of Tammany flail not to contlno itself. In the selection of delegates to State conventions, to the membership of tho organization, and tho result lias been that the ninety delegates and ninety alternates who go to the Convention from this cltv are such as to represent very gen erally all classes In tho party. This policy was pursued In 1801, whin the dying County De mocracy tried to force Itself upon thoConven tlnn. and again In tho Convention of February, 1HI) , when the Cuckoos made their bolt. It Is expected that an unusually strong delega tion will be chosen at the primaries to be held this week. To secure this end tho Executive I Committee has suggested to the organizations of the several Assembly districts that they select strong and reprcsentatlv o men In making up their delegations. Among those who are ex pected to be elected are Frederlo P. Olcott, City t hamberlain Joseph J. O'Donohue, John A. Mc- Call. John 1). Crliumlns, David McClure. Con VJ KreMznan Amos. J. Cummlngs, Joseph J. Little, Iielos McCurdy, Postmaster Dayton, George Ehret, and Jacob Huppcrt. WOMEX IX TOZITICS. Earnest and Active In Their First Cam. palga In Colorado. Dr.f Yin, Sept. 18. The women are making most earnest and active politicians In this their first campaign. They have already given the noted Arapahoe county Hepubllcan gang a hard fight and declare that they will jet overturn their machine. The latest sensation was sprung to-day when Miss Mary V.

C, Sept 18. Departing trains this morning carried olT the members of tho Convention claiming to bo " Plstform Demo crats." Incoming trains this ev cnlng hav o filled thn hotels with delrgitcs to tho Convention called under the regular Democratic organiza tion. This will meet to-morrow to nomlnato ii Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, and other Stnte officers. The Conv cntlon will simply rntl fy the nomination of John Gary Evans for Gov ernor, and W, It, Tlmmermim for running mate. They were named ns Tlllmantte candidates In tho factional Convention of Aug, 10. As to the remaining places on the ticket, ft lively scramble Is In progress among a scoro of aspirants. Tho chief Interest In to-morrow's Conv entlon centres about the platform they will adopt. In the Tlllmanlte August Convention the Ocala demands were endorsed with practical unanimity. In the State Conv cntlon of 'OJ the Tlltmanltes Incorporated tho Alllnnco platform In the Statn Democratic platform. The action of last night's Conv entlon amounted to an ulti matum demanding that tho 1 illmnnttes repudi ate tho Ornla platform and rundldaUs In sym pathy with It. It Is certain that thcTltmsnltes will. In whole or In part, reject these tntidlllons to-morrow, andltlsnlxiut entlall) certain Hint the "platform Democrats." In that cv eut, will meet again early next week anil nominate a straight Democratic ticket. It Is hard to prtilUtpreelel what plat form the Tlllmanltes will agree Uxn. Gov. Tillman, Senator Irby, and John Gnry Evans nre up stralrslnn room fixing up a plat form tn suit tilt Ir tastes, and the Convention, possibly with a few grimaces and struggle, will gulp It down. It Isllktly to boa hybrid affair, indorsing the Chlrago platform, with uf no coinage construction of the silver plank, con dunning Clevclnnd and thn " plutocrats," and indorsing nil r part of theOinlndeinands. Of course, the "platform Democrats " will ( ome In fur wholesale and scathing denunciation as "holters" and Independents."

Tho text of the reso lutions yesterday adopted by the Conviution of sugar planters Is: tVmlrrct, That wo believe in the protection of all Amcrirnn industries to tho end that Ameri can labor and American enterprise shall not bo crushed out by the products of the poorly paid labor of Kuropo anil the coolie nnd pauper labor of tho nst of tho w orld.

It was granted by Congress against our protest, but after It was enacted Into u law which declared that it should last until 1001, wo accepted It as a solemn pledge of tho Oov eminent of the Cnlud. States, which we did not believe any Oongresa controlled by any pnrtv would repudiate. In acrordanco with that belief, and rely Ing upon the honor of our Government, we expended enormous minis of money and mortgaged our property forlmmense loans In order to meet tho expectation of the country" and Increase tho production of sugar, which, inixilntof fact, we hav o doubled Inthree years under the McKlnley act. That Indebted ness 1h still unpaid, and the Wilson bill has made it lmposlblo for us to meet our obliga tions, lltukruptcy stares us In the face. We declare that no honest Government can afford to break Its faith with Its own people or ruin Its owucitizens. "Iffsolifd, That wo enter our solemn protest agalust the continuance of the treaty with Hawaii, by which, under tho recently enacted tariff, the producers of sugar of those Hands with tho cool o laborers will receive a Imunty from the sugar consumers of the United States of over 8(1,000,000 ier annum. "Jlftlinl, That we earnestly recommend nnd urge the people of Ixmlslana to orgrnlro them selves Into clubs, committees, and conventions, with the view of electing members from each district to the Congress of tho L'nlted States pledged to stand by tho National Hepubllcan party In the organization of the I louse of Hep rrsentntlvesund In the protection of American industries, "ffieriltrd. That we hereby declare the causes which led to tho inauguration of this movement are of a financial and Industrial nature and that the character and standing of its leaders are a sufficient gnarantre that they will ever advocate Sood sovernment to the people of this btato. We lierufore demand a fair ilex tlnn and nn honest count and the return of the votes as east, and we expect at the hands of the Chief Executtvo of this State to see to It that we have a fair rep resentation on all Hoards of Heglstration and Election.

A Kudden Room for Mtrnla Hprlnga I'p nt the Convention, JUliTKOIili, Sept, 18.-Tho Hepubllcan State Convention opened at Fontguard Hall to-night with a very large attendance. The Convention was culled to order at 8 o'clock by Herbert E. Denton of New Haven, Chairman of the State Central Committee, who presented ex-Congressman William Fdgar Mraonds of Canton as temporary Chairman of the Convention. Com mttteeson Credentials, Permanent Organization, and Hesolutions were appointed from nomi nations made upon the floor of the Convention. Ihe Convention adjourned at about 10 o'clock to meet at 10 o'clock to-morrow morning. There Is u great deal of uncertain!) as to the nomination for Governor, The candidates are Col. Frank W Cheney of South Manchester, ex-r-rnator O. Vincent Coffin of Mlddletown, ex-I.leut.-Oov. S. E. Merwlnof New Haven. John Addison Porter of pomfrtt, anel ex-Mayor W. II. Marigold of llrideeport. At .i o'clock this afu moon a New Haven train nulled into the Hartford depot carrying the best known representatives of the Connecticut lobby, und a boom for Gen Merwtn was at once begun. The flood amounted almost to a tidal av r, and If the Voting hail come to-night Mer win would havebetu clionen on the first lllot. Connecticut's astute member of the Hepubllcan National Committee, the genial "Sam" Fes henden. whose political preferences up to to-day have been shrouded In clouds and darkness, has vaulted ovtr to theMerw In side of the fence. He takes with him a lurge share of Fairfield county. The Mate Central Committee are work Ing hard for Merwln. and tbe Marigold delega. lion, headed by ex.tpeaker Allen W Paige, are htadetl that way. Tho vote fur Port"rwlll be only complimentary, and a his forces dlsin tegralo it Is probable tho majority will go to Merwin Middlesex county voted to-night to stand by Coffin till tho last, but Merwln's unexpected strength has so alarmed them that they muy go ovtrtoCheniy, If tiny do, Cheney would bo residuary legatee, and would hare the call on the nomination. This combination Is more likely to happen, because there la nothing the Coffin men would dUltko so much to see as tho iiotulnutionof Merwin. It is Drohable that the first ballot to-morrow will stand about as fol lows. 31rruiu. ITS. Cheney, 130, Coffin, SO; Por'er. 74, Marigold.

St., sajs that 14,000 Chinese prisoners were marched through that place yesterday, nnd hundreds of other prisoners ore coming In every hour. None of these men was wounded. Transports have been ordered to Ping-Yang Inlet to convey tho prisoners to Japan. The Chinese force around Ping-Yang com prised tho flower of tho Chinese Brmy nnd was really the only effective forco In China. The men composing the levies now I Ing mode In land have no Idea whatever of modern warfare. Tho Vail Mall (Imttte'i Shanghai correspond ent says the Japanese nre rapidly advancing upon Mukden.

A reporter this afternoon had an Interview with Sir Halllday Macartney, Secretary of tho Chinese Ltgutton, with reference to tho report that LI Hung Chang had committed suicide. He said the legation had received a cablegram from IJ Hung Chang dated nt Tientsin. Sept. 18, In which the Viceroy expressed fear that tho Chinese would havo great difficulty In rctalulnc Ping-Yang. He-enforcements for tho Chinese troops, to tho number of 60,000, aro said to lie twtween tho Yalu Hlver and ling-Yang. This report Is dis credited. The Central Neves sajs: "After the first feel ing of surprise at tho Japanese victory has worn off, It Is admitted by experts who know tho re spective qualities of the armies that the result Is a natural one. Marshal Yamagato, the Japanese Commander-in-Chief, was trained In European schools, nnd tlio other Japanese commanders and staff officers were similarly educated. Tho best friends of the Chinese do not believe them capable of holding the ports on tho Gulf of Pe Chlhll against the Japanese." Tho TtmM will publish to-morrow a despatch from Shanghai, dated Sept. 18, saying: "The Chinese admit their defeat outside of Ping-Yang, but deny that tho city was captured. It Is reported that 20,000 Japanese have landed west of the Yalu Hlver." WASllltOTO, Sept. 18, The following de spatch has been received by the Japanese Min ister from the Minister of Foreign Affairs at Toklo: "On Sept. IS the Japanese nrmy attacked tbe Chinese forces, which were strongly Intrenched at Ping-Yang, and, after severe lighting, won a complete victory, capturing Ping-Yang before dawn of the lUth. Tho Chine se numbered more than S0.000, and, with the exception of a very few who fled, tbe rest were either killed, wound ed, or taken prisoners. Including the Chinese commander. Gen, Tso, A very large quantity of provisions and munitions of war were taken. Tho Japanese loss was .100 killed and wounded." The Chinese Legation, as usual, haTe no Infor mation. Mall advices to the mlddlo of August received at tho Japanese Legation ruy that assaults on Chinese in Japan are less frequent, and the better class of people have taken steps to pre serve the lives and property of the Chinese among Hum. Tho Japanese Government has Issued an Imperial ordinance providing that Chinese may tontlnuo to reside In "those places in Japan where they have hitherto been per mitted to reside, and there to engage In all peaceful and lawful occupations with duo pro tection of life and property, and subject to the Jurisdiction of the Japanese courts." Chinese rcfhlents are required to register their names, residences, and occupations, and they are permitted to change their place of abode only on application to the Governor of the prefecture where they reside. The supply of volunteers for the Japanese army largely exceeds the demand, and the Em peror has been compelled to tell the people that while fully appreciating the feelings of those Japanese subjects who wish to organize volun teer corps, he advises them that all those who are not enrolled In the army and navy will be serving the best Interests of the empire by con tinuing steadfastly to pursue their ordinary oc cupations. The influence of the war on the commerce of Japan and China has been very disastrous, while the effect upon shares und bonds (seven more alarming, Contributions to carry on the war are as free ly glv en as when the patriotic spirit recelv ed Its first Impetus Thenavy has followed the exam ple of tne War Department and established a contribution office. It Is understood that on Aug. 1 tho contributions to the War Depart ment amounted to 60,000 yen In round num bers. The articles contributed were mostly to bacco, straw sandals, and towels. Several la dles of title have Issued circulars to their female friends to ask for help toward a scheme to send comforts to the Japanese soldiers and sailors. T he Government Is understood to be contem plating the raising of a loautn defray war ex penses. There has been much discussion In Japan about the disposition of prisoners of war. Many suggestions have been made, but none adopted. It Is reiwrted that a uumber of Chinese prison ers hav e expressed theuueb es as better satisfied with their position as prisoners than as free soldiers. The Japanese Minister has made these sugges tions to the King of Corea with reference lu the recent reorganization of the Corean Govern ment. All the offices, from that of Prime Minister down, should be filled by men of real ability. Irrespective of birth or family. Another point of gTrst importance is that tho prin cipal officials of Male should be in vested with considerable discretionary rawer. What tbe ordinary Ministers of late cannot decide themselves, they should re fer to Ihe Prime Mlrlsier. and only when the UtU-r Is awUe to deal will, ll the matter sbouU J fmmmmmmmmm be referred to yonr Majesty's personal Judg n!i'n.t TJ,L'Te"?nt "stem of submitting all nTalrs of State, however trifling, to your Ma jesty personal consideration Is calculated to eauso much Inconvenience and delay lit tho con duct of business. " I must respectfully cull your Majesty's at tentlon to one more subjee t. n snbjert tit which I would fain ftvold any allusion. I refer to the necessity that nil Interference of the ladles nf the court In polities should bostrlrtly prohibited. In my country, as In all otliir rlvlllreel countries, the household department Is strictly kept apart from politics. This Is a tuesauro absolutely necessary for the (icrmanent prospc rlty of your Majesty's dv nasty." m Minister Oterl also told the King that tho re form Instituted betokened an Hdvnlne In tho direction of rlvlllzatlon, but w hat had been ac complished was merely, preliminary, At tho time M, Otorl wns making his Mntimrnt the yneen Is said to hnvo been sitting In hind this King, Tint work nf reform Is now being dnlh' con sidered br sixteen Corean i onimtsstinurs. Their deliberations are attended bv the ltegent, the King's father. Suggestions with reference to Corean affairs are many, various, and unique. One newspaper suggi sted that the welfare of Corea will be increased If Japanese and Corians can be Induced to Intermarry. The paper says that at least two or three hircent.of tho Japan ese havo Corean blood In thilr veins. THE IlhOlOX OF Tltl! IIATTt.i:.

'I he Chinese nrmy that has Just been defeated entered Corea, as tho elo-pnti lies have Informed us, nt WI.Ju, near tho mouth eif tho large Yalu Hlver. WI.Ju has a population of about 1)0,000, and Is tho depot for nil goods from Corea sent to China by tho overland route. There Is only ononwd leading directly from WI.Ju to Ping-Yang, nnd thut Is clearly shown on tlio map.

Nearly all the triiduof the northwestern part of tho pen. Insula passes over tl Is road, along which the Chinese." advanced to the ixmthenst, occupy Ing Ping-Yang without nn trouble. In this town, commanding, as ltdiMs, the mall Inland route from the tmutli, and also the route.! to the Important eoas- towns of WI.Ju in the northwest ami Grn-"Min In tho nnrtueast and hence occupying n position of great military 1m lKirtnnce, the Chinese commander established the greater part of his force and awaited events. Tho Japanese troops huvu entered Corea lit three points. The larger part of them hate rounded the south end of the peninsula and de lurked at Chemulpo, the port of the capital, Seoul. Another detachment landed at Fu-san. on tho southeast coast of Corta,u port which Is not shown on our map. Still another forco landed at Gen-san. on tho northeast coast. The Japanese troops who were sent to Ping Ynng to give battle to the Chinese were drawn from Seoul nnd Chemulpo In tho south, and from Gen-san in tho east. The united fore es as thy reached Ping-Yang aro said to have numlicred A0.U00 men. Tlio fmnllirpnrtnf them were sent in transports to tho mouth of tho Ta-tong Hlver. within about thirty -llv e miles of I'lng-i ang. A large forco took the Inland road from Seoui to Plug-Yang, which, with its extension to WI.Ju, Is the high road of commerce north of Seoul. This road Is that which has for centuries lieen taktn bv missions to and from Pekln. and along Its rour-e tbe Curenns have fought many bloody luittlcs against the invading urmles of China and Japan The third detachment took tho only road con necting Gen-san with Ping-Vang, which was followed and has lieen described by Mr. Camp bell. Gen-san, with Its neat streets nf Jnpnncso houses nnd Its well-kept bridges and pier, is a rather exceptional town for Corea.
