I William J. Hryan got hero yesterday, and saw

I hli unwillingness to offend tha State

m Bf delegates to the noxt National Convention
M. o( tho onrty, and his natural Inclination to talk
JHl about national political questions, he spent a not
IJ Terr enjoyable day, although after hushing him
J 0p Mr. Sheehan gaTo him a dinner at Dol-
' monlco's.
Mr. Bryan came to the city at 0:30 o'clock
yesterday morning from Lanslngburg, where he
bad lectured the night before on froe silver
I colnago and monopollstlo monsters. He wns
, met at the Grand Central Station by James
B Oliver, Sergoant-at-Anns of tha Popocratlo Nn
V tlonal Commlttco, who breakfasted with him at
JW. tho Grand Union Hotel. After broakfost he took
5 alocnl train to Tarr) town, whero he visited John
Lb Urlsbcn Walker. Returning to tho city at 11 :35
If with Mr. Walker, ho went directly to the ofllco
I of his friend, Phllo S. Uonnctt, at 100 Hudson
ft itreet, whero bo (rot and answered his letters.
Then, accompanied by Mr. Walker, he called on
Jk Mr. Danfortb, who Is Chairman of the
jl fopocrntlo State Committee, at the lattcr'a
Sf sfflce. After a short conference. In which,
U (t Is sold, he was Informed that It
was the wish of cx-Scnator Hill and tho
I Etate machine that ho should do or say nothing
I whllo In the Stato which might Interfere
I with tho plans of Tammany, the can
1 dldato callod on Col. William Jj. Brown
1 st tho ofllco of tho Daily AVi. From Col.
I Brown's ofllco he went, accompanied by the
B Colonel, to the otltco of John C. Shccbon, at 253
I Broadway. Hero ho met, besides Mr. Shoc-
han. Augustus W. Peters, Chairman of
H the Tammany Hall General Commlttco,
I ana learned that what Mr. Danforth
JR had told htm of tho troublo he might
Sj ciako for Tammany and himself if so. u any
thing ubout tho local campaign was true. Mr.
Eheehnn had formulated a plan of campaign
which he outlined to Mr. Bryan, who understood
that he w as not to Intorfero with It.
All this occurred before Mr. Bryan would
submit to tie Interviewed on tho Ureater Now
York fight or talk In other than tho
moat guarded way on any topic Tho
faithful Jimmy Oliver piloted him about tho
town. Aside from a few cheers from the
cabmen at tho Grand Central Station and a
handshake from a Broadway policeman, tho
great public gav e no sign of recognition of tho
man who was a Presidential candidate less than
a year ago.
After another flying visit to his rriend In Hud
f son street, Mr. Br) an went to the Hotel Bar-
tholdl, arriving there about 41 o'clock In the
afternoon. Ho found awaiting him a delega
tion of Knights of Labor, and representa
tives of the Progressive Democratlo Leaguo
and other organisations interested in the mass
meeting to bo held in Union square to-morrow
night to discuss municipal ownership of
I franchises. Tho committee was hooded by
1 P. J. Collins of 1). A. 75, who acted as
A spokesman. They had a long conference with
I air. Bryan in the latter's apartments. At its
I conclusion Mr. Collins told w hat occurred.
I "We asked Mr. Bryan to speak at the Union
I square meeting," said he, " and he said he re-
I rrttted that he would be unable to do bo, as
I he has an engagement to speak at Nor-
I folk, Vs., on that night. Ho added that
the last campaign had demonstrated that the
Knights of Labor of Greater New York
would see to it that the Democratic party takes
no step backward in the municipal cam
paign. Be said that the question of
municipal ownership of franchises Is a
local one and he felt that he ought not to Inter
fere. He said further that ho believed the local
Democratlo leaders are sincere In their profes
sions of fealty to tho Chicago nlatform.
" I told him that that was doubted by many
Knights of Labor, and told him the story of ths
I Sixth and Eighth avenue railroad franchise
I matter in the Board of Aldermen. I tnld him
that all of the Tammany Aldermen voted
B against the city in that matter, and I said
that if they by their action outlined
). a wtlt rt Tammnnv Tfall trim" mrantfa.
I tlon need not expect any support from
the Knights, the Progressive Democratlo
League, or any of the other organizations
which are honestly and earnestly agitating
for municipal ownership of franchises. lie was
Informed, In fact, that we would probably find It
cecesssry to name our own candidates.
"Mr. Bryan closed his part of the talk by saying
that he could not be expected to take part In
local campaigns as he would come to be consid
ered apolitical boss, and he is opposed to political
bossiim. He was told that the public ownership
ef franchises is part of tho Chicago platform and
that the Issue la not so local as he would liko to
Bake it."
After this uncomfortablo session with tha
Kuhthts, Mr. Brynn met a delegation from the
Loyal Democratic League, which managed the
free silver lecture course that Droved such a
dismal failure lost winter. These men were
assembled In one of the hotel parlors, and Mr.
Bryan was Introduced by President II. M. Mo
Donald of the League, who had beard from the
machine leaders, and requested Mr. Bryan to
make his remargs non-political.
" Your request to make a non-political speech
ti a hard one," was tho Boy Orator's Introduc
tion. " It would be much easier to make a non
partisan one. My attention has been so com
pletely taken np with political affairs that it is
peculiarly difficult for me to refrain from talk
ing on political questions. By political ques
tions I mean such as concern the HtTairs of gov
ernment. It is the duty of cv cry citizen to tako
an active part in the concerns of government.
A man may or may not bo called to tho public
service, hut it la tho duty of every citizen to
take an active interest in the affairs of tho na
tion. Whether he is a candidate or not is a
matter which concerns others. But whether he
takes a part in government affairs Is a matter
whl h concerns himself.
" I look back over the recent campaign as one
of great advantage to the American people. You
cannot know always or toll Immediately the
effects for good or evil of such a cam
paign. Whether the victory then won is
to bo temporary or permanent remains to bo
seen; but I am sure that the study which tho
campaign excited will be, for years to come,
productive of great good. Whenever the peo
ple commence to study political questions they
carry their investigation to the point whero
they reach the beat solution of the problems pre
sented. They also begin to scrutlnlzo the
acts of their public servants. Kvery publla ser
vant is better for being watched, and every pub
lic ten ant w ho is desirous to do his duty should
be glad to be watched. Tbeyaro moro faithful
when the) know the eye of tho public Is uuon
them. An awakened people win. watch their
public servants.
"You call joursplves the Loyal Democratlo
league an unusually fortunuto combination of
names. To be lo) nils to bo true. Only by loy
alty to Democratic principles can wo make our
Uovernment what It ought to be. Democ

Mr. Brynn dined at Dolmonlco's with John C.

Krory Popocrnt who talkod with Bryan yes

certainly a candldato for tho Popocratlo nomi

Bryan Is a candidate, nnd Mr. tjheoban
held a similar view. Tho Popocrnt nt
tho Hotel Bartholdl did not liriltato to
declare thnt Mr. Bryan would certainly
bo rcnomtuatcd ln 1U0O. Mr. Bryan entered
tho State nt Buffalo and ascertained from
Norman K. Mock that Elliot Danforlli had as

his friends sny, a majority of the Democratlo

Judgoot the Court of Appeals nothing Is to Ira
said about tha Chicago platform. Lender
Sheehan, It was said by his friends yesterday,
would bnvo groat dlflleulty in controlling his

leaders do not bellove in blanketing tho Chicago
iilatform. The City Convention, which is lobe,
lomlnated by Tnmmnny, Is likely to bo tho
wildest kind of nn nltair, and Mr. Sheehan is
said to be oxpoctlug trouble.

some property In her own right, loft tho apart
ments of Morris Levy, with whoso family she
lived, at 431 East Klghty-socond street, about
10 o'clock on Thursday evening, June 3. Her
departure wns sudden. When sho walked out
of tho flat sho turned to Mr. and Mrs. Levy, as
she crossed thoir threshold, and exclaimed:
" Fnrowoll to you alll"
Yesterday morning, at S o'clock, her body was
found floating ln the East Rivor, at the foot of
Commoroe strcot, Brooklyn. It was discovered
by tho steward of tho tug Edward Luckenbach,
which was tlod up nt tho Atlantic dock. When
first scon tho body was floating between tho tug
nnd tho Cox coal scow, Bostwtck, No. 8, GnpL
John Spccr. Capt. Spocr sat ln ths cabin door
way of his boat, when ho heard the Luckcn
bach's steward call to him.
"I say thoro. Captain, there's a body down
heroin tho river between your boat nnd mine.
Judge It's a woman from the length of tho hair."
Capt. Spoer looked tpward tho spot to which
tbo steward pointed nnd he saw tho body. Tho
two men mndo fast ft line to tho body, and Uion
the stoward notified the police. Flvo hours
after tho body wns discovered It was
towed nshoro nnd sent to tho .Morgue. Thoro
wcro no marks of vloleneo on the body except n
slight cut on tho right Btdo of tho head, ln nil
probability producod by contact with somothlng
ln tha river,
Tha gtrlworoa plnld Jersey, a skirt of some
maroon woollen material with a long nnp,
through which wnvy striposof bluo ran, a bluo

below the tops of tho high, black, button shoes.
A few shreds of a straw hat still clung to tho
matted d&ik brown hair when tha body was
taken out of tha water.
The police found nothing on tho body that In
dicated Its Identity. At tbo Morgue, however,
when tha clothing was romoved, papers wcro
found in the bosom of tho dress which led to
identification. Ono of theso papers contained
tho following:
"Wo find that, at tho death of Blasslus Bor
cher, hu had the followlug personal property:
Cash In bink. $2,100: ln9urnnco policy In tho
Catholic Knights. $2,000. lotal. 4,400, and
his homestead. Stepmother's sharo was $2,400,
which she received March, 1807."
On tho rovurso side of tho paper was this:
" Wnttcn bj Mr. Morris Levy, 434 East Klghty
sccond btrect, city. This copy is to remain In
tho trunk of Mnry Berchor until X Death de
parts. May 4, 1807."
A letter dated April 20. 1807, was addressed
to tho law firm of Goodrich, Dcndy& Goodrich, I
50 and 01 Wall street. It contained tho state
ment that tho guardian for tho Berchor heirs
was unablo to fllo his accounting on April
20. owing to his Inability to find certain vouch
ers, but that ho would fllo the accounting on tho
following day. Then follows a sc-hedulo of re
ceipts and disbursements mado by the guardian.
After finding these pupen tbo girl's Identity
was easily established. Tho pathctio story of
the girl's life was told to a Suvrcportor yester
day afternoon by Mrs. Morris Levy, who said:
" Mary Bcrcher was born ln Fort Smith, Ark.,

with his legislative friends regarding ths ways
and moans of getting out of tho rovunue tanglo
nt Harrlsburg, Senator Quay loft Philadelphia
this afternoon for his son Richard's home, nt
Sowlckloy, near Pittsburg. Last night's con
fcrcmodldnot reach any doflnlto conclusions,
nnd details will not bo decided until tho Senato
and Hon so leaders act together ln Harrlsburg on
Monday, But enough was dono to ojitltno ln a
general wny tho courso of action that will bo
followed In tbo remaining weeks of tbo Legisla
ture, although tho suggested policy Is freighted
with ideas that In all likelihood will provoko
additional dissension and controversy.
Stato Senator McCarroll, who was in the con
ference with Senator Quay, last night said th it
while no nlnn was arranged in detail. It wus tho
opinion of those who u irtlclpnted ln tha confer
ence that there should bo no additional tnatlon,
and that tho appropriations should be cut down
as much as postlble. There U some talk of di
verting tho proceeds of tbo tx-rsonnl property
from tho counties into tho btate Treasury. Un
der tho lnw 75 per rent, of tho amount collected
Is returned to the counties. This will meet with
strong opposition from the counties.
Thero is evory indication now that the Legis
lature, Instead of adjourning on July 1, will sit
until July 15. and there is one class of legislators
who look upon this arrangement with consider
bledlsgust. Members of too Pennsylvania legis
lature are paid 81.!00 a session and mileage at
tho rate of 10 cents a mile. A custom among thu
Senators and Representatives at Hnrrisburg,
sanctioned by long usage, is to collect thoentlro
sum inn lump nt tlio opening of the session in
J.tnunry, and now a few are skirmishing around
for personal loans.
