These tele- grams were of a peisonal natureandof course ro treated. Hon ever, the text of afw of them hw the drift of sentiment. One from Chicago said "CcriitratulatioES on our n:gnlflcnt ad dretsof yesterday. It Is the keynote of the onwusn." . . , , A Sea Orleans friend telegraphed! "Your address ws read at a ratification pieetlnr last nlzht which was attended by 6,000 Pple. am?

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 McKlr.'ey. He will carry our State bl the larwt plurality ever irtven a Republican can didate. The Dlatfoni la eminently satisfac tory to our people, who brook no digression from found monpv and honest business) prin ciples. A campaign of education, with sound money and protection for the tocsin. Is bound 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. roon after the morning Issues of the larger city papers arrived, an old-time Democrat, who stands by tbe name In spite of the drclaixtioas. sent his son for his paper. Shortly afterward the lad returned, paper In hand, raying: Pop wants a Democratic paper. 1 his one is for McKlnley " Another was iubstltntcd. The lad returned a second tine and then a third with the same complaint. Then the old man came himself, "a directed to the counter to make a selec tion. m search was In vain, and he went heme with the first paper. Not a newspaper on sale here this morning had editorial en dorsement of Demqcratlo ticket or platform. WOUHN Til CALL ON M'KZNZET. "' X of The Comlac froaa Cleveland tirade by lire, (Stewart.

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. XUBIBL LIKE OETTZXO LOST. She Ltkee the Park Pallea, Too. Their Doll, aaa the Hslras. For the past three months a regular holiday diversion of Master Joseph Wis hart, T year old. has been to escort his sister Muriel. 3H. to Central Park, there to desert her as eooo as 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 tion for tho sparrow cops. At a little after noon 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 desx. although he couldn't see her. "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 with you" " You aak an awful lot of a.ue-ttont." raid ths tot with some asperity, aa she climbed Into a big cbalr and vlgoronsly fanned nerseif and the doll. "I've come here to stay." she announced. "Itn more fnn here'n it is home, and vour doll's a betterMoU'n mine. So I Just came, that's all I" hho was Informed that Matron Wynne was not thero to receive her. but she said tt didn't make any difference. The men were Just aa good, and better, she thougbt. Ten minutes later Mrs. Wisbart came In hot pursuit of the truant, to the policemen's great ohagiin and to the clamorous grief of Muriel. TE.V EYCK'X ItOAT SCUTTLED. A Saejaa! aad Perhaps a CeaMSKSM of FsmoBi Bride; CoatroTsrer. Co Ten Eyck's steam launch, the Ten Eyck, was scuttled and sunk In front of the Valley House at Greenwood Lake on Friday nlgbt. It was found in Ave feet of water on Saturday morning, and Ten Eyck quickly assured himself that the sinking was the result of malice, al though be could not think of anybody In the neighborhood mean Viough to do such an act. The Ten Eyck Is nearly fifty feet long. It Is an open canopy-top launch, with double-compound engines and a water-tube boiler. It cost nearly S3.000 three years ago. After the boat was bcllt and fitted with engine and boiler It be came necessary to take down an old bridge crossing the arm of the lake below the Valley Honse, so that the boat could get out to the main lake. Then a clumsy old drawbridge was built In place of the old structure by the town of War wick. CoeTen Eyck refnsed to abut the draw every time he had to paaa through, and aald that the town should pay somsbody for doing the work. A cuarrsl ensued with the Super visor and expensive lawsuits ensued. The draw was chained, and whan the chain wa cut the draw was riveted. When the rivets were cut the wheels were taken from under the draw, Coe Ten Eyck won after the town politics changed Inst year, and a man has been paid to swing the draw since then. It la not known that any bitterness arising from the bridge fight Inspired the sinking of the boat. Anur rmsosEB vasihhe.h.

FIlfEB THE ACTOK $10 TOR CTULIXa OS TUK CAHIXO CONCOURSE. Dealare that lacnerane of th Ceatral Park Bale ITa No Eaeaae-HarrlOrd When the Aetor AdsaHa Call I aa the Policeman Who Arrealtd tiles a Jaikass 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. bn tn case was called In the York vllle Conrt Magistrate Mott wanted to know what It was all about. Policeman Monohan. although Mr. Mansfield bad apologized, was angry at being called a Jackaaa. So. after band ing In his serious statement, telling how he came to arrest Mansfield, he supplemented it with: "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 that?" "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 Mr. Mansfield. "I did." replied the prisoner, "but" then he started to climb up on the platform In front of the desk. "Get down: go hack there." shouted the Magistrate. " what business have you up here? Wby. even tha reporters can't come that near me.-.Yoa'r a prisoner, sir. and you want to understand that I don't allow prisoners on this platform." . 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 the complaint. "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 bicycle where the Park ordinance says you can't ride one?" I wsa leuorcnt " began the prisoner. " So Is every one who comes before me." said Mog'strate Mott. " That Isn't any excuse at all. Here, get back. Don't you think I want to aee the prisoners who are brought before me ?" 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 court." added Magistrate Mott, "and I'm going to run It." Mr. McGlynn explained that he had no Inten tion of rnnning anything. "The policeman called to me twice," put in Mr. Mansfield. "Th first time I didn't bear him." "Then how do you know he yelled at you twice?" asked the Magistrate. " I mean I didn't know wbat ha wanted the first time." replied the prisoner. " That's no excuse at all." aald Mott- " You've broken th law and I'll fine yon $10. If you didn't know you were breaking the iae. that Isn't my fault. ' I.r.ST A STRANGER BIO. The aVSO Bill Ita Oot aa rleenrlty Proved la Bs Coafcderate Carraaey.

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 In the Chicago platform and represented by the Chicago nominees. Tho purpose of tha Conference Is lo dttcrmlne what action should be taken by tho organized De mocracy lu those States and other political 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.

The Roman Cathollo Church of tha Visitation In Verona and Richards streets, one of tbe handsomest churches in Brooklyn, was de stroyed by fire at midnight last night. At 11 :SS o'clock James Carroll, who lives In a frame house at the rear of the church, saw a flash or light In tbe building, and when he made an Investigation he found that the front part of the Interior of the edifice was afire. Tbe flames were then spreading in all directions, and In less than five minutes the interior of the church was a masaot fiwa, The three alarms which were sounded brought a dozen fire engines and two fire boats, but the beat was so Intense that the firemen could make but little headway. When the blaze was at Its height the Rev. Father Klrby, one of the assistant of tbe Rev. Father William McGutrl. the rector of the church, made several Ineffectual at tempt to save the blessed sacrament which was In the sanctuary. He rushed In through the vestry room and tried to reach tho chancel, but the intense heat drove him back, and he was obliged to abandon further at tempts. The Interior of the church was totally de stroyed. There Is nothing left of the beautiful edifice except the bare walls. The loss is about $150,000. There was an Insurance of $60,000 on the bulldlug and Ita contents. The Cnurch of the Visitation, which was built about eighteen years ago, was a blue granite structure with a frontage of (IS feet on Verona street and extending back ISO feet on Richards street. The church was entirely clear of debt, and about six years ago It was consecrated by Bishop Loughlln, The church faced Columbia Park, from which fully 16,000 people watched the fire.

A canal boat moored at the dock and three Ontario and Western fiat cars, loaded with lumber, were also burned.

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 east extension: "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 tempted burglary. 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 window. 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 quest McEneaney was sent to Ilellevue llosnltal a prisoner peodlng the examination on Wednes-day. TROLLEY OAR STttlKES A HEARSE.

Ho falls to romember that VI New York is a city of orators; but, never- SM thelees. Mr. Brynn will undoubtedly attract e, H great crowd to hoar him speak. It was thero til that President Cleveland and Vlce-Pres- ill ident Stevenson wero notified of their 111 nominations Just four years ago. The Demo- i'II 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 dent in tho last forty- years, it also gaveth IIH nation a President who wrecked his party In !! 1HKB and who has smashed it utterly In 1800. iM The silver men. with Senator James K.Jones, !!

They are ' 'jl very much opposed to tho nomination of Mr. ' fi Sewall.

Tbe Eastern f'l people who are millionaires are, in tbeestlma- '. tlon of these Populistle leaders, little let than , felons. Moreover, they propose to teach thes , men who have accumulatod something for old ,' age that thrift and Industry should not bo con- 'i; sldered among thn cardinal principles of lit.
