AwiAKr, Sept. 21. The Democratic situation T a to the possible candidate for OoTernor. Lleu- I tenanUGovernor, and Judge of tho Court of Ap peals Is becoming more Interesting every hour. No man living incompetent to ray who will be the men to lead tho Democracy into battlo this Tall. In fact, there Is no evident Intention to H name the candidates before the Conven- 41 Uon assembles. The Convention Itself will name the men It wants. There are, of course, consultations among tho Influential Democrat In different part of the State, and these con ferences will be continued until the Convention meets, and will not bo discontinued even amid its deliberations. Senator Hill, Senator Murphy, and LteuL-Qor. Bhcehan had short talks to-day, and afterward Mr. Murphy and Mr. Sheehan went to Saratoga. Mr. Murphy has not (thru up his fine cottage In that village, and Mr. Shee ban has engaged headquarters In the Grand Union for the Democratic Htato Committee. , The Tammany braves will also bo at the Orand Union, and tha Urooklyn warriors will be there, too. A It waa more than ever apparent to-day that J J there Is a strong sentiment In all parts of the 6tate which favors the nomination of Supreme Court Judge William J. Oaynor for Oovcrnor. The friends of Senator John J. Llnson of King ston and Superior Court Judge Titus of Huflalo believe that they would add strength to tho ticket If they were named respectively for Lieutenant-Governor and Judgo of the Court of Ap peals. But there will be many more candidates for these two latter places. Tho strength of Judge Gaynor Is that he could tako the stump and make It lively for the Republican enemy. It wan remarked that outside of Senator Hill and Judgo Gaynor few are competent to present the Issues to be brought out In the canvass. Judgo Gaynor, It was added. Is a clear cut, In- clslve, hard-hitting orator, and that he is the man for tho joung Democracy and tho old Democracy, regulars and anils, to tlo to In tho emergency that many are con vinced confronts the Democratic party of the State. I la declared tbat the business situation ' i la slowly but surely Improving, and all that is required for victory Is for the Democratlo Con vention at baratoga to name a Democrat of tho mmpc tency And strong characteristics of Jndge Gaynor. There is no question that many Dem ocrats high In tho counsels of tho party favor hl nomination on the ground that he would unite the factions and wage a battle that would be memorable in future campaigns. Eminent llruoklyn Democrats who have not been entirely In accord with Judgo Gaynor are now dlscuss 1 lng the suggestion of their brethren and others that Judge Gaynor should- be nominated, despite his frequent assertion that he is not a candidate. It has been said that the Administration at Washington desired the nomination of either Secretary Daniel 8. Lamont or Mr. Lament's eminent friend, tho Hon. William O. Whitney. N It Is dlfUcult to get at the truth of this, or efl whether Mr. Whitney Is a candidate, and for that matter It Is remarked no better Admlnls- I tratlon man than Judge Gaynor stands in one or two shoes. Mayor GUroy's utterances to-day In a New York morning newspaper concerning Mr. Whitney, and favoring him as the candi date for Governor, are not thoroughly under stood In Albany and elsewhere. The question was raised to-day. Has Mr. GUroy the right to speak for Mr. Whitney? It is known that the two gentlemen met In Europe, and It la remarked by certain Democrats to be rather significant that Mr. Whitney is returning from Kuropo just at this time. It Is observed to-night, 1 though, that Mayor Gilmy has toned down his I iittornncea, and yet the Whitney matter, Jft whether or not he Is a candidate, oven after the j(f utterances of months ago. Is somewhat of a I mystery to some. One eminent Democrat said 1 Uiat this was not to be a Whitney Convention, WtJ and be) ond a few scattering votes In It Mr. Kll Whitney would not be heard of. Another eml Jr J nent Democratlo leader remarked that If Mr. Whitney la secretly a candidate, and this Is I made clear at the last moment, there might be I trouble, but the boat political prophets In the State still bellevo unreservedly that Judge Gaynor la to be named. Even those who for per sonal considerations would like to see Mr. Whit ney nominated believe tliat Judge Gaynor's nomination will be the sentiment of tho 3S4 , delegates to the Convention. j Hut as already said, the Democrats at Saratoga ' are to have an open convention. The windows were closed tight In Convention Hall when the Republicans met at Saratoga, but with the Demo- J I crats there will be fresh alrand perfect freedom. I To-morrow the Democrats will have further dls- I cusslons, and the delegates will begin to (hoot . through Albany on their wn) to baratoga. Sen- y ator Hill will undoubtedly start for the Springs v on Sunday, or at the latest Monday. iV 1 Conference at Rtaator Hill's Law Office. I fly lh Vnilr.1 fnu. I ALBAjtr, Sept. SI. A conference of some of the Democratlo leader was held here to-day at jj Senator David 11. Hill's law office. I.leuU-dov, Sbeelian arrived here at noon, on his way from 1 New York to Saratoga, and w 111 remain at the ' Hotel Kenmore until to-morrow afternoon. " Who do ou fa or for the Democratic nomt- i nation for Go vernor!"' Mr, Sheehan was asked, "The strongest man that can be nominated," he rt piled, 1" Are juu a candidate for rennmtnatlon to the office of Lieutenant-Governor?" " No, sir. I am not a candidate for any ofllre," Mr. Sheehan said he had not the faintest Idea as to who would be nominated for Governor. At this point benator Hill remarked that a number of people for the past few da s hail been trying to have hltn give them Information as to who the Democratic nominee for Gov eroor would be. He said that it a Impossible to give Informa tion he did not possess, and that he was Just as mucb at sea on this questiou a tvtr) one else. Mr, Bhcehan was In conference wltb benator HIU until about -1 o'clock, when benator Mur phy and Major James W Hinrkle) of Po'igh keeptle, who has been talked of to succeed benator Murphy as Chairman nf the Democratlo btate Committee, ami rx-beiaalor John MiCurt) of Urooklyn. representing Uie Kings county regular Democratic organization, urrlvcd at benator Hill's ofllce and Joined the. conference, which lasted until U o'clisk At Its tone Union It as admitted that the nudidato to be nominated fur Governor next liieada) at baratogu was the subject of discussion, but the differences of opinion were so great that nun here near a conclusion was arm ea at.

Tammany completed last night its list of delegates to the Stato Convention to bo held In Saratoga on Tuesday.

Among those chosen are Mayor Gllroy, Con gressman W. IJourke Cockrnn, and Corporation Counsel Clark. These three will go to Saratoga to-day to consult with the leaders of tho Democ racy In the State.

Commissioner of Immigration Joseph II. benner Is President of Good Govern ment Club J, which is also known as a German club. Tho club applied for admission to the Confederation, and at yesterday's meeting the application w as directed to lw returned, because no ortli i holder can beati officer nf a Gixal Gov ernment Club, and for the further reason that It is against the rules nf the organization to mako dlvtlni tloni of nationality in organising clubs.

It Is be lieved that he Is not entirely satisfied with the place, and would prefer, If he were to bo con tlnued in public office, some other and more agreeable post of duty. Mr. McClellan has filled the Mayors chair In the absence of Mayor Gil ro), and he lias been mentioned as the possible candidate of Tammany Hall for Mayor. The only thing that has been urged against him Is his youth. 1 hat Is what prevents his being the candidate of the Democracy for Lieutenant Gntertior this tear.

Mrs. John Del Veclio, a variety actress, .10 years old, died about 4 o'clock ) cstenlay after noon In her room at the lodging ltouse 84 East Tenth street, apparently from drinking two ounces of carbolic acid. Her husband was In the room at tho time, nslcep on tho bed. He was on the verge of delirium tremens. Certain circumstances In the cose made the police bellevo that the mnn also had attempted suicide or pretended to attempt It- Thero was a very slight cut on his neck, and his lips had been burned a llttto by tho acid. A letter found In the room signified that ho had contemplated taking his life. Whether or not husband and wife hod determined to com mit sulcldo together, and n helher the man had afterward backed out. Is not known, but that Is ono theory of tho police. Tho man Is now in the prison ward of Uellovuo Hospital under tho charge nf alcoholism, and until ho Is able to talk rationally nothing poslth e w III bo known. Del Vccho. who Is nil actor nt cheap theatres, came with his wife two weeks ngu from Atlantic City, where they had had a summer engage ment, and took a front room on the top floor of the Tenth street lodging house. Mrs. Kmfly Arno. who also has been n slngir and dancer, had had tho house only two weeks at the time, and tho Del Vechoswcro unknown to her. Sho noticed that thero was n disparity of ago In the couple, the wife being ten years older than her husband, but they seemed tcry nlTectlonatc. Iloth were out of work. In a week, howeicr, Del Vccho got an engagement at tho Hnrlem Mu seum, In Third avenue, near l'jfith street. Ho drank hard, but mode no disturbance In tho house. His site usually had to put him to bed Three days ago tho drinking began to tell on tho man. Ho wasextessUrly nervous and neg lected his work nt the theatre. His wife often Waited Mrs.Arno in her kitchen, nnd told her that she was afraid her husband would drink himself trary. On Thursduy night ho had Ills of trembling, nnd thought somcljody was pur sulnghlm. His wife coaxed lilm to gn to bed. Yesterday morning nothing was heard of tho cnuplo until about o'clock, when Mrs. Del Vecho was seen to leave tho house w lth a small vial In her hand. She came back shortly, and ' stepped down stairs to tell Mrs. Arno that her husband was In a very bad nay. Ilohad got up. sho wihl, and tried to shave himself, but she had taken the razor away from him and hidden It, Ucause his hands trembled so. Ho had even threatened to kill himself with the razor, sho At 2 o'clock Mrs. Arno went up stairs to lcavo clean towels In her lislgers' room, and when she knocked at tho Del Vccho' door she got no ansvtcr. bhn opened the door and found hus band nnd w Ifc lylngon the bed amwrcntly asleep. Two hour aflerwnnl Mm. Arno was sew ng In her parlor and heard some one tumbling down stairs. She got up in time to meet Del Vecho In the entry. ,, , "Oh. my GodP he cried. My wlfol my That was all Mrs. Arno could get out of him as ho strode up and down tho narrow entry, bho smelhxl carbolic acid and scrainbleU up to M rs. Del Vccho's room. She fonnd the woman lying on tho bed. her face burned red from the eyebrows to the chin. Mrs. Del Vecho was still breathing, but did not groan or struggle. Tho bed clothing was not disarranged, nor any of the furniture. Mrs. Arno called In a pollecmon. When the ambulance camo It was to take Del Vecho to the hospital, for the woman waa already dead. Her body was taken to 00 Car mine street. .... .. - , The police found In the room the following letter, written In a large hand with a stub pen: I ws. driven to this by hesrtng. or thinking 1 heard, a dirty, nerarlous report about myself which was without foundation or proof. 1 am as honorable a man as ever lived. PcrhajM It Is owing to my oti r-sensl-tlvencs or reining Inffersoirs suicidal theories.

May Ood forgive me. This waa written on a double letter head, one side of which had the husband's advertisement, the other the wife's. On tho hack of the letter were these tao addresses: "Ernest Del Vecho. t!l Symonds sU. bulem. Mass.." and " Mrs. Sarah Davidson, 83 Mnsnn St.. balem. Mas." Tho printing on tho letter head was; The Peerless Mnslcal Artist, J. Del V-ho. la sn Ar tlstlc lluslcsl lerfnrmsmo upon BielghbelU. Mando lin, Pliiophone. Xylophone. e.

Also, an Original "lieau Iinimmel" Turn In Elaborate Costumes. Acts and W an! robe are " Par Excellence." Lillian Do Young waa Mrs. Del Veoho's pro fessional name. W lth the letter waa also a sheet of manuscript music, pinned to which were two or three shiets of paper, upon which were writ ten the wnrds of a song of eight v ernes, entitled: " In Publlc-In Prlvnte." The first verse and chorus ran; A great many people aro angels on earth. And pass as pure models of esnulslte vtorth. In public. Their gloss Is so glossy they can't help but shine, lorUuyarsihsevjM-uceor all that a divine. Their angelic manners are so supcrnne. In public. Chobi-s. Put yon should see the other side, in private. They bars quite another slue. In private. When they've dorTnl their out-door smile, W tilth would kill at half a mile. They have quite a different style, lu prlvats. On the floor In a corner of tho room were sev ersl sheets of papi r half torn acroe. They were the beginnings of luurn that wvru not ended. One was written In Ink, and read: Ifr. 1 OmlfA. DsuaSiai My husband, betug ivrf sick, I. unable to appear to-day- The others werelnthu same strain, but were written In pencil. All ended abruptly. Iho handwriting In these letters was slngulailr like that of the furvwill letler, but crumped and smaller. It Is possible thit nil the letters, as well as the verses, were written by the same hand. The fragments of letters were all dated 'I he other things found by the police In the room were an empty tw "-ounce bottle, without a label. In which there had been carbolic acid, and a pair uf scissors, it was said at the East Fifth street station lost night that Del Veihu liad tried to kill himself with the scissors. They were not In evidence, however, and seemed to have been mislaid. In the prison ward of the hospital Del echo Is held for "attempted suicide by slabbing him self In the throat ami drinking carbolic acid," On the police station blotter is the same charge. At the host Itat, however, they sa that Ihe man Is there simply fur "alcoholism," end the am bulance slip has the same endorsement. D1 Vecho was sitting upright In bed last night, and had no bandages upon hliu. Mrs. Arno thinks he may have burned his lips kissing his wife. Policeman Harvey 11 Ware of the Old Slip police station, who lives at .".'0 East 107th street. Is a half brother of Mrs. Del Vecho. He said last night that the casu as a in j stery to him from the twglnnlng, " I cau't explain It," he continued, "because they were a most devoted couple. John drank some, but I don't think steadily. He was a little queer in his head at times. I saw my sister on Wedneedav, She was very down-hearted, and said sbe had been in bad luck for some time, fehe couldn't get an engagement, and she didn't know what sbe and John were going to do. I never thought for a moment tbat she had any Idea of suicide. I in vlted her to tome up with her husband to stay at my house for a while, but she refused. Del Vecho has been In the Insane ward at Hellevue, but they didn't think there was much the mat ter with him, so he w as discharged." Manager Smith of the Harlem Museum re ceived a note at 7 o'clock last night, signed by Mrs. Del Vecho. but In a man's handwriting, sa lng that her husband was too ill to appear.
