Mvlor McKlnley' mall continues to brine In
Jiearty congratulations, and the most recent
tines refer to the Chicago Convention and his
excellent qualification! for meeting the Issues
It work lays down. Another noticeable fea
ture of the mall is the larea number of marked
bewspaper. The number of thee which
editorially oppose the adoption of such a plat
form as was adopted Is surprising, and those
which have repudiated the Chicago declara
tions are already rolling In. There are In
the papers also numerous paragraphs marked
civtug statements of leading men In all carts
of the country pronouncing against the plat
form. Manv. probably the majority, of these
Cellars that thiy will support McKlnley.
The National Republican Cbalrman. Mark
A. Hanna, It Is said, will announce his
Executive Committee in Cleveland on Mon
day evening, and It Is probable that the
Advisory Committee will be atuvuxtced at
the same time. A high authority this even
ing sars that In the make-up of the Executive
Committee recognition will be given to neither
of the factions of New York. But In the make
tip of the Advisory Committee, which In the
impandlng campaign is to be about equally
Important with the Executive; Committee,
both New Tork factions will be represented.
If Thomas C. Piatt Is not on this committee
it Is thought It will bo because ha does not
can to be and not because Mr. Hanna does not
give him opportunity. In case ot his decli
nation It if said Edward Lauterbach la next
ou the list. But in jaae Mr. Piatt's lieuten
ant does not care to serve, the list contains
ethers of the faction from which one will be
Selected. From the other faction Warner
Miller. Gen. Horace Porter, Gen. Anson Mc-C-ufc.
and Cornelius N. Bllrs are under con
sideration, ar.d the latter, tt is thought, will
have the refusal of the place. It la understood
last the conservative element of both aides
approve of Mr. Hanna's plan for handling the
New Tork factions, ard that to far as pout ble
la mauaeiag the campaign Mr. Hanna will par
tus some such conciliatory tactics in all Stavbts
where there Is division over local tones.
The Executive Committee will meet in
Cleveland on Wednesday, and the Advisory
Committee will probably organise there at
the same time. After the meeting the mem
bers of the commitues are expecwd to come
to Canton to see the nominee.
Major McKlnley passed the day as ha has
most Sundays since hlJ nomination. He went
to hU own church In the murajrjt. took a drive
in the evening, ending at ice railroad station
with departing friends, and spent the re
mainder of the day at home.
Congressman L. u. Apley of the Fourth
Massachusetts district, who Is also Vice
Chairman of the Congress Campaign Com
miit. wa a guest at the McKlnley home dur
ing tne oar and accompanied the MaJr to
church. When asked for an expression on the
camnuza situation Mr. Apsley said:
"You cannot use terms too trcxg to express
th nthailat!c support which Massachusetts
and all of N'w England will give to Major

to result In victory.
As showing the' general repudiation of the
Chicago Convention's work an amusing Ir.cl
deit was related by a local newsdealer to-day.

complaint. Then the old man came himself,

Indianapolis, July 1?. Friends of Oen. Har
rison say that the pressure for his services In
the campaign has already begun, and that he
has signified his willingness to exert his influ
ence tu behalf of the St. Louis platform and
candidate. It Is now believed that a tour will be
mapped out for him through Important West
ern States like Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, and
Missouri, and through the border Southern
States of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Mary
land. It Is possible that the trip wilt Include
some points In Louisiana and Tennessee.
The General Is said to hold that Missouri,
Kentucky. West Virginia, and Maryland can be
held to the Republican party if proper steps are
taken to make a vigorous campaign in them.
The Harrison following her expect that the ex
President Is to have some Influence with the
Administration If McKlnley wins, and that no
appointments here will be made that are offen
sive to him.

possible. At about gotng home time, after a
day of selfish amusement untrammelled by
brotherly cares, he would saunter nonchalantly
Into the Arsenal police station and ask for his
sister. After reprimanding her mildly for not
keeping closer to him be escorted her home.
This happened five or six times, until the police
became familiar with JoaeDh'a little game, and
until Muriel grew to have a very natural affec

yesterday Muriel walked Into tha station and
went into the matron's room "without asking
any questions, she came out Immediately,
closely hugging ths "polloeman's doll." for
which she has always had great admiration.
Sergeant McGlynn heard her trot np to tha

"Hello, baby." he called out. "lost?"
"No. I ain't lost," replied a complacent femt
nlie voice. "Wnare's the police laay?"
The Sergeant peered over the desk In astonish
ment. He recognized her at once.
"Why. Mnrlel," he said. "I'm glad to see
you. Where's Jce?"
"Oh. I don't know. Gone to Europe. Where's
the police lady"
"Well, well." Inquired the Sergeant, with In
creased astonishment, "who came over here

Richard Mansfield, th actor, appeared aa a
prisoner before Magistrate Mott In the York
Till Police Court yesterday morning. He waa
accompanied by his lawyer. A. W. McOlynn of
SOS Broadway, who tried to show that the actor
hadn't don anything that a peaceable citizen
should be arrested for, taken to a police station,
and routed out of bed at an unseemly hour In
tho morning to appear before a Magistrate.
Magistrate Mott took exceptions to Mr. Mc
Glynn's views. He, ton, had been obliged to
rise comparatively early, and he told Mr.
Mansfield and tha lawyer so. He didn't
eo why persons who ought to know
better got Into trouble and kept him
sitting In a stuffy police court during a scorch
ing Sunday morning. Actor Mansfield listened
to the Magistrate's tirade In mild surprise, but
he didn't have very much to say for himself. It
evidently pained ham that he was obliged to
stand before an lrite old man and llton to a
lecture Ilka an unruly schoolboy slmpl) because
he ventured Into forbidden ground with his
bicycle on Haturday evening. Several times he
removed his eyeglasses, wiped them carerully
and adjustod them for another look at his lee.
turer. When the lecture was over he paid the
fine of $10 impoved upon him and quietly left
the court room.
"I've really nothing to say," said he to the
reporters, "only It's beastly. Upon my word It's
a beatl shame. Hetnlght have fined me with,
out making so much fum about It."
As tola In yesterday morning's Sus. Mr. Mans
field got Into trouble because he Inadvertently
circled the Concourse In front ot the Calno In
Central Park after dining there on Saturday.
There Is a park ordinance against bicyclists
trespassing on the concourse. Hundreds of
children make the spot a playground, and the
park authorities don't propose to have their
limbs endangered by careless bicycle riders.
But Mr. Mansfield didn't know this, so when he
turned his wheel Into th Concourse be couldn't
understand why Park Policeman Monohan
shouted to blm to stoo. Finally he dismounted
from his wheel and called the graycoat a "Jack
ass." Th dialogue which ensued ended In tho
actor being dragged aa a prisoner to the Arsenal.
Later be was taken to the East Sixty eerrnth
street police station, where he sat In the Captain's
room and smoked cigars until someone came
and balled him out.

what It was all about. Policeman Monohan.
although Mr. Mansfield bad apologized, was
angry at being called a Jackaaa. So. after band

came to arrest Mansfield, he supplemented it
"He told me that I ought ton ashamed of
myself for arresting him because he bad often
given me tip for holding hU horse."
"What I" screamed the Magistrate, "does he
say that he tlpDed a police officer did he say
"He did." replied Monohan. "and I've been
on the fore for thirty-five years. And he called
me an ass."
" Did you T" asked the Magistrate, glaring at
"I did." replied the prisoner, "but" then he
started to climb up on the platform In front of

Magistrate. " what business have you up here?

Mr. Mansfield subsided, and the Magistrate
turned to the oollceman.
" What did you arrest him for?" he asked the
policeman, not having taken the trouble to read
"Violation ot the Park ordinance." said Mon
ohan. "We don't want those bicycle riders
running down the children who play in the Con
course," "But there were no children there," Inter
rupted Mr. Mausfield.
"Silencel" said the Magistrate. "There
might have been, and you might have run over
them. What business bave yon to be riding a

" So Is every one who comes before me." said

Lawyer MoGlynn. wbo had unconsciously
moved between the Magistrate and his client,
got out of the war.
" I want It understood that I'm running this

to run It."
Mr. McGlynn explained that he had no Inten

"The policeman called to me twice," put in
Mr. Mansfield. "Th first time I didn't bear
"Then how do you know he yelled at you
twice?" asked the Magistrate.
" I mean I didn't know wbat ha wanted the

Either here or at Long Branch he will
meet and consult with representative sound
money Democrats as to the course which should
be follow, ed by those members of tho party who
are unwilling to accept the principles laid down

divisions where tho very life of Democratic or
ganization Is threatened by the Chicago Con
vention's declaration of principles. Among
those who will participate In tho ionference.lt
Is said, are William C. Whitney, United States
Senators Gray of Delaware, Smith of New
Jersey, Gorman of Marrlaud, and Brlce of
Ohio. If the conference should be bold at
Long Branch, Senator Murphv. who Is there,
and who was too 111 to go to Chicago, may par
ticipate. As the question Is one of vital Im
portance to tho local Tammany Hall organiza
tion, tt Is moro than probable that John C.
Sheehan, James J. Martin, and other Tam
many leaders will be consulted.
Whatever course Is to be decided on. It is un
derstood thnt nn early meeting of tho Demo
cratic State Committee will be culled to carry
the plan Into effect. Chairman Hlikley of the
State Committee said on Saturday that the com
mittee wilt probably bo called to meet within
two weeks. Until this conference Is held no
steps will be taken by tbe Tamuiany Hull or
ganization. Mr. Whitney, Mr. CouderU Corporation Coun

hastened to get out of the city early sesterday
morning, seeking tho mountain and seashore,
Montof them left word behind that they bad
nothing to say and would have nothing to sny

Witt Warner, commended the proposition. Mr.
Warner said that Mr. Bryan would do well to
carry his war Into Africa, and show the people
of the East Just what be is like. Mr. Warner
" I do not thluk there Is much doubt of the de
feat of Bryan. The business Interest of the
country bave baen thoroughly frightened by
tbe action at Chicago, and they will do tbe busi

their fright a year ago. If they had. the Chi

Frederick McEncancy, who Is employed by
his brother as a bartender and lives over the
lattor'a saloon at 84 Sixth avenue, has been
drinking heavily for the past three months, aud
for several days, past has been on tho verge of
delirium tremens. His brother aud sister have
watched him closely so that lie would nothnrm
himself. At midnight tin Saturday they
left him nsloenona sofa In a room on the sec
ond floor, the windows of which overlook tho
premises of Mrs. Martha Welsh, n wealthy
widow, who lives at ID 5 Waverley place
with her threo servants. Mrs. Welsh sleeps on
one of the upper floors, as do her three servants.
A bulldog is kept locked up on the ground floor
to keep away Intruders.
Shortly before il o'clock yesterday morning
the bulldog began to bark. A moment later
could be heard the sound of breaking glass. The
noise ot the falling glass and the barking of the
dog awoke tho aervnnts. They awakened Mrs.
Welsh, who sleeps tn the rear of her house In
an extension built on the west aldo ot the build
ing. East of the brick extension on the second
story Is a glass-covered extension.
When Mrs. Welsh was awakened by ber ser
vant, who told her that they thought burglars
were around, she grasped a rovolver alio kept
In her bedroom, and ran to a window from
which she could see Into the glass extension.
Looking down she could see a figuro prowling
about. Mrs. Welsh pointed her revolver down
ward and fired at tho stone flagging. Then she
said to tho man wbo was walking about the
"If you don't stand still I'll shoot you."
The Intruder did us he was directed, and Mrs.
Welsh kept her revolver pointed at his head
while she sent a servant for a policeman. The
servant returned quickly with several blue
coats, who had heard thu report of the shot and
were tr Ing to locate the sound,
They grabbed the man in tbe extension, who
seemed to be daxed and was only bait dressed.
He wore no shoes or stockings. He went along
to the Mercer street station bouso without re
sistance, and when be arrived there be gave
his name as Frederick McEnraney. He was
tocked'up on Mrs. Welsh's complaint of at
Ye.terday morning McEneaney was arraigned
tn Jefferson Market Court. Hts right eye was
blackrned and his shoulder dislocated. He was
badly frightened and so weak that it took two
policemen to bold blm before the bar.
Mrs. Welsh told bow she and her servants
had been awakened by McEneaney forcing his
way Into her house, and how she had fired a
shot to hold him at bay until help arrived.
Several of MeEneaney's relatives, who were
In court, got him a lawyer. Through his coun
sel. Mchneaney told how hu had been drinking.
He said be couldn't sleep on Saturday night
and got up soon after midnight and sat at the
He went to sleep while sitting at the window.
Tbe next thing he remembered was striking
the ground. His right shoulder pained him. and
he couldn't realize where he was. Finally lie con
cluded to ry to get out of the place he was Jo.
Aftor walking around the yard several minutes
he saw a stoop. He walked up the stoou. and.
Instead of attempting to force tbe dnor. he
climbed over tbe railing of the toop and broke
into the glass side of the extension. He said ho
had no object In view in doing this other than to
escape from the yard.
After the prisoner had told his story. Magis
trate Flammer decided tn postpone his jrnin
Inatton until Wednesday, so that he would be
belter able to tell what actually did happen. It
doesn't seem possible that he fell outof the win
dow aa he aavs he did. lor there is a tree in one
corner of Mrs- Welsh's yard, and one of Its
branches runs directly underneath the window.
He couldn't fall nut withuui striking the tree
underneath the window. If he did strike the
branch some of the leaves and twigs would have
been broken off. It la thought. There was none
on the ground, and a pile of cut grass under
neath tl.o window was not disturbed.
His relatives think he walked off tho root of
the house Into Mrs Welsh's yard. At their re

alsts on having that meeting In Madl.on Square '

New York is a city of orators; but, never- SM

rratl- prty was then about to take ita l.tl
nrt steps toward tho great and sweeping vie- ii
tory of 1802. Tho Dcmocrntlo party Is now f?n
wrerked and ruined for the time. The com- njH
ment out this way Is that while New York gavo ?ji
tho United States tho only Democratlo Prcsl- 'Vi

All are greatly interested In the outcome of rjl

with thn ticket of Bryan and Hewall, There are m
many other leading I'opullsts who coincide with f g
Senator Butler, and If Bryan Is not endorsed by ').
the Populist Convention at St. Louis he might j if
as well throw up the snongn, ;
The Populist leaders here will give no eg. ( J
presslnnof opinion as f what Is likely to happen L r
at St. Louis. Their National Commute Is to . i
meet In the Mound City within a few days and 4 i
have an exhaustive discussion over tho ettua- I 'I
tlon. Some are Inclined to bellevo that Mr. f'
Bryan should be endorsed, and other are Just ' If
as violently opposed to any such step. They are ' 'jl
very much opposed to tho nomination of Mr. ' fi
Sewall. They declare to-day that Mr. Sewall Is ''
a man worth at least (600,000, and Inasmuch aa 3il
these populletlc loaders are not as well oft In this )

lie that Mr. Sewall Is little less than a criminal V
