Hi' bm told his friends that ha haa been ltlicrod out of hit senses by tho attitude of hla friends In Tammany aa to the platform on which Tamminy's candidate for a Mayor of Greater w York should stand. It was mads known yesterday that there were a few othor pooplo at the dinner ot Wll Htm C. Whitney In tho Metropolitan Club, a little o or iv wook ago, than was at first an nounced. Among thorn were John A. MoCall, President of tho Now York Life Insurance, Company, and Kdward M. Bhopardot Brooklyn. It Is reoorlod that Mr. McCoJJ and Mr. Bhep nrrt did some very lively talking at tho dinner. Iloih Mr. McCnll and Mr. Shepard wero out of town, and ev-Gov. Flower was asked If no waa at htcrtj to any anything about tho remarks of 11,; McCall and Mr. Shepard. "So, fir, no. sir." replied Mr. Slower. "I am not going to tell anything that occurred at tho dinner." Kx-Gov. Flowor has said all along that only Tim Bun'4 cables from London concerning the new sayings ot Christ were dlsoussod at tho dinner. When Mr. Slower says this he winks the other eye. As a matter of fact, tho gold Democrats who surround tJ Mr. Whitney at hla dinner practically declared that If Tammany Indorsed tho Chicago platform of 1BU0 thor would conttnuo tho bolt agalnsl John C. Sheonan and Bryanltm. It was in vlo known lust night that this ultimatum has been delivered to Mr. Sheehan and that he will think ov er It during his racatlon days. Before Loader Sheehan loft New York ha told his friends that he did not wish to Indorse the Chicago platform, nnd that ho would try In every wjy to avoid doing so, but that the demands from Tammany's leaden and tho rank and fllo of Tanimnny might ov erpower him. Every now and then the namo of Elbrtdge T. Otrrj Is montloned as Tammany'a possible can didate for Mayor ot Creator New York. It was ascertained last ulght on tho best authority that this time Mr. Gerry's name la being seriously considered. Supremo Court Justice. Morgan J. O'Brien de clares that be Is not a candidato and that nono of his friends has any right to mention his namy and furthermore belleves.lt was said, that only Tnnimany men unfriondly to him will keep Mm to tho front us a possible candidate ot the Popocrats for Mayor of Orcator New York. The Hon. Gideon J. Tucker, formerly Secre tary of State, and sonior member of Tammany Hall, has sent the following letter to the United Democracy: " Robert Sttwart, Ztq Chairman Executive Cbeimil ttt.de " Dc jlr 8m: I take especial pleasure in sign ing the within paper, for I wrote the first edi torial published In this city In support of Mr. Bryan s nomination last year, ana I voted for him last year, as I had for twelve earlier Democratic Presidential candidates. I am tho senior member of tho Tammany Society, and an ex-sachem of forty years ago, and am at present member nf tbe Tammany Hall General Com mittee from ttieTnenty-rlfth Assembly district. I consider tho Democratic platform adopted at Chicatto in 1800 to bo the beat platform ever adopted for a candidate to stand upon. "t favor tho Democratla platform adopted at Chicago in 1800 and Its reafUrmatlon br the party in New York, and In next fall's municipal election 1 will nupport only candidates pledged to support said platform. "I favor the municipal ownership, control, and opcr.it ion of street railways, gas, and elec tric lighting plants, and 1 desire those to be an l3uo in tho approaching municipal election. Very respectfully and truly. GlDEOlf. J. TUCKXB." TA3T3IANY XUBTN'T UEDOB. Rx-Seaator Btxby Wauraa MUr. Sheonan Vol lower Ai-alaut av Doable IhaBSo, The Young Democracy of the Eighteenth Assembly district of Brooklyn held a large meeting at Kingston nail last evening. The first speaker was former Senator Francis M. lilvby. Ho said In part: "The disloyal men who met at Indianapolis are represented by a national committee, and this august body assembled In New York three or four dnya ago for the transaction of important business. The entire domain of the United , States furnished eight representatives, and the , business proceeded Joyfully. They announced that the gold bugs would make a contest in three States in tbo coming tall, and that they hold the balance of power everywhere. It was to proclaim this, else we might never have knonn anything about their existence. "Concerning Jlr. Whitney's banquet at the Metropolitan Club, the papers reported soven persons present, which hardly covers the gold bug party. IJuttbosuwhoriid attend indulged inalot or moonshine talk, the bunion of which appeared to relate to what was tho proper thing to do against the interests of the people, and what they would do to Tammany llall should the leaders of that organisation fall to bow down and worship them. Just now Tammany occupies a very delicate posi tion. If aho stands by the gold bugs and abandons ber identity with the Democratio party she will get contributions which she great ly needs, and the friendship of the Palmer and Bnckner outfit, which is not a much coveted prize, and she will get kicked out ot the Demo- I emtio party. If Tnmmany reaftlrms the princi ples of the party, and unites in the nominations of good. loyal Democrats tor all the elective offices, then the gold bugs will bo compelled, un less they are dirt eaters, to get out of tbo organ isation and keep their contributions In the store house. "What would suit Tammany In this emer gency would be to play the straddle act, but this year especially tbo people don't want any doublo shuffle business they want straight goods for once. If Tammany Is a Democratic organiza tion, let her como out squarely for the party : If the is owned by the disloyalists, let her deal fairly with them and gel out of the Democratio party." Addresses were also delivered by James A. Gray of the Home liule Democracy and Henry Mchols, A district organisation was effected. nji.zis aster worth. Tbo Cemmlulouer Says Ills Paction Will Con trol the County Convention. City Works Commissioner Theodore B. Willis ot Brooklyn will make another effort to pull the props from under County Clerk Jacob Worth, his factional opponent In Republican organisation. He thus outlined the situation yesterday: "Well, for one thing. I think Buttling is not particularly woll liked. And Worth is not on band to be consulted by those who are looking for favors for themselves or others. There Is naturally a good doul of dissatisfaction. Be sices, it has been obvious to me for some time thai there it a growing aontiment in the party in favor ot the gentlemen with whom I associate. "We will control the County Convention. There Is no doubt of this." NOT RELYING ON JU3J. rrOJlTZT. Mr. Krai May no Made Assistant Appraiser Without tbe Brooklyn Man's Aid. , John K.

At 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, and continuing until -1 o'clock, a suc cession ot thunderstorms poured a flood ot water on tho country In this vicinity and also gave a remarkable electrical display. In addi tion to tho showers there was heavy fall ot hall, which did great damage to the tobacco and corn crops and all standing grain. Tho storm clouds were first notlcod In the south. They grow rapidly lu slzo, and after the ilrst fall of rain worked around to tho north. Then came a hallburat, and the clouds gradually worked off to the south again. Tho wind In an hour and a half blew from every point ot the compass. Shortly before 3 o'clock a ball ot tiro pasted over Schous's hardware store on Main street, and sheering oft from a network of wires in front of the Klrchnor building, which Is the high est structure in town. It struck the centre ot the flagpole above It and gouged a hole in the wood for several feet, extending up and down. An instant later another ball of fire struck the polo higher up and shattered another aoctlon of It. Simultaneously a ball of tire struck tho flag polo on tho Nelson Houbo. knocked the hall off the top, and then followod tho palo down, gouging out the limber on Its passage unit leaving a mark liko the stripes of a barber's polo. Another ball of tiro crossed Washington street and camo In contact witti a plate-glass window in Wetzal'a store. For a moment tho window was covered with a sheet of flame. The glass was cracked in the centra and a small piece chlppod out. From tho fracture extended cracks to every corner of the win dow, tho whole presenting tho appcaranco of a lar,e spider's web. Jumes Traoy Bat a few feet from tbe door, nnd he says that whon the light ning struck thoro was a sound like tho sizzling of a fuse, accompanied by a dazzling cborry colored light. About the time that the Nelson House was struck, a burn oned by Mr. Bain, the propria tor, on tbe Kim Stock Farm at Dover, twenty five miles nway, wua struck and burned, to gether with its contents of forty-three loads of newly gathered hay.

Its mite was not Injured. He could not see that tho lightning struck anywhere In tho vicinity. At Wapplnger's Falls, nine miles nway, the lightning named out In streaks from under the wheels ot a car standing on the track. It did not rain there until an hour and a half aftor ward, and tho electricity evidently followod tbe wires down. Jacob Rnppert. the New York brewer, was spending tho afternoon at the Hudson It Ivor Driving Park, and ho says that he saw balls of cherry-colored Are drop to the ground. The spectacle isdescrlbod ns brilliant and terrifying. Whon the first bolt struck the Klronnor building the windows of the first floor opening into the olllco of Cannon Sz Lloyd, architects, wore open, and Charles Mitchell, a mechanical engineer, wis sitting on a chair near one of tbem. I In was knocked dawn. Itcnrj Diets, a drauchtsm in, who was standing near by, says that the bolt pasaod across tho room nnd through a hall, and was followed by a distinct odor of sulphur. George Metcalf, who has ofllces In tho same building. Indorses this statement. Tho ball of fire Is described by Mr. Dletz us four foot In diameter and mado up of curling tnngnea of flames twining nruund eaoh other. Mr. Olfor man and Mr. Shea, tbe othor draughtsmen In the ofllco, agree substantially with him in his recollection of the phenomenon.

She stood In a doorway nt Now Haekonsaok when a bolt of lightning struok a house across tho road. Kleelrlellj Melted a Htret Car Ball. Lightning struck a trolley car feeder wire cable at Myrtle avenue and Harman strcot, Williamsburg, last night, and melted It in two. The ends of tho cable fell to tho ground, and ono of them, becoming snagged on the steel rail of tbe car track, burned the rail for several feet. For mure than a block the rails were heated by the eloctrlo current, turning first to a rod and thon to a white host. When the lightning struck tbe feeder cable thero was an explosion as loud as tbut of a battery of cannon, Tho heated glowing rails nttraitod a crowd and ihe police had great difficulty In keeping tbeptople from danger, A man who tried to push the feeder wire oil the burning ttcel with a piece of wood received tin eleetrlo shock which nearly prostrated him. Finally an electrician appeared and removed tho lire wire, The road was blocked for nearly an hour. The William Ubluehart House Struck. In wood. L. I July 23.

The house Is a large one, with two extensions, Mrs. Rhlnehart and hor mother were sitting beside an open window la ono of the extensions, and each felt a tingling teusat Ion as the light ning struck, but neither was badly hurt. The lightning smashed every pane of glass on the south side of the house and went diagonally across tho building, Every clapboard was sprung, the nails being forced out uf the wood, A large hole was dug in the grouud where Ilia lightning landed.

Hawkins Is a plain, unassuming young fellow and has inoro friends than n prize fighter Is us ually able to hold.

Hawkins objeotod to the selection and rot used to fight. Ho would not agree to the use of the free arm In clinches. Tho management declared that Cook should referoo tho fight, and ho on terud the ring amid hisses. Then the seconds and all other persons In tbe ring mado speeches, Jim Neol, Hawkins's backer, said the betting had gono back from 100 to 70 to 100 to 10, and he believed something was w rong, Dixon then advanced to tbe centre of the ring. The last bottlnv was 10 to U in tbe tatter's favur. At (:-& o'clock thoro was a scene of groat excitement. The crowd yelled "Fight," ut Hawkintsatobstlnntelyln his corner.

It closed without ad vantage to either man. Tenth Round. The half-way post was passed with no change in affairs.' Dixon waited a little for Hawkins to do same work. Tbo latter did not respond and the round was slow. Eikventh Houmi. Dixon, In a rush, crowd ed Haw kin to his knees. Tho former landed a left on tbo body and rushed Hawkins. The round cloned with no change. Twkltth Hound. Hawkins appeared to bo tiring, but the colored lad seemed to bo as nimble as over and kept up the leading. Uaw- J'ts came back with loft swings.

Only rear Bfeeadt Between the Two Beats at tbe Kal of a Tnentr-two Mile Bare The Syce Downs the Venredor by Orer Four Mlnntes Shark Beau the Wave Handily. The featuro of the yacht racing oft Larchmont yesterday afternoon was the "grand-stand " fin ish of the thirty-footers, in which Newbury D. Lawton's Raoooon beat J. M. MacDonough's Mutmebyfour tveonds. The result exhibited more fully than vo ever boon demonstrated be fore the wonder! Uy quick working type of rac ing machine this popular dust has proved. It was on tho homestretch that tho oxcltoment was at Its height. The Raccoon had a slight lead, with the Musmo hanging grimly on hor loo quarter, lots than twenty yards nway, and both tearing through tbe green water with broad bands of foam sliding past their mahogany hulls. The Mutme kept edging up toward the flying Raccoon, her owner, J. M. MacDonottgb, using overy art of which ho Is matter to blanket bis opponent, Newbury Lawton, on the leading boat, was determined that he needed all the air that was stirring In order to win, and kept the Raccoon oft more end more, still followod by the Muimo llko a Nemesis, until thoy woro far oft to the southward of tholr coune. Then, fatter than could bo done on any other class of racing yachts, splnnakors woro dousod almost simultaneously, booms wero gybed over to port together, and, with relative positions un changed, they again shot with accoleratod speed for the finish line. Had the Raccoon been thirty seconds slower In this manoeuvre tho Musmo would have crossed tbo finish line n winner, or bad the latter craft lagged even tho smallest fraction ot a minute, the Raccoon would have won by a wide margin. Both sailors, howaver, wero on their mettle, nnd tho yachts behaved perfectly, Tho nmnoeuvro was re peated again and again, each time ns close to gether as though controlled by a single mind, until the Raccoon flow across tho lino a winner by the narrow margin of fourseconds. Another featuro of the day's sport was tho race between Frod Hoyt's Byco nnd ex-Commodore Harry Gllllg's Voncodor. which has hereto fore met with accidents in ono form or another and been compelled to withdraw. This tlmo sbo sailed an excellent race, but, notwithstanding tho fact that Bbo was steered by Hazcn Morse, ono ot tho cleverest amatour sailors on Iong Isl and Bound, was beaten by Gardner & Cox's pro duction. The preparatory signal was at 11:30 o'clock. Tho wind was blowing light from tho south southwest, but the weather sharps predicted that it would grow stronger during tho nf tor noon. The schooner class did not MIL At 11:10 o'clock class IC ot sloops was sent awar with a blast of tbe whistle. This Included tho Vence dor, satlod by Hazen Morse, and Frod M. Hoyt's Hjco with ber owner nt tbo wheel and his usuul Corinthian crow of export satloruion. Tho course was the samo as wassailed on tho other days of tbe week, the first leg being a reach, with wind on the starboard beam, to an nnchorod dory oft Mantlnlcock Point; thenco to a mark In Hempstead Harbor oft Prospect Point, which was ubeat with tho long leg on the port tack and a brood reach on the port tack to tho homo mark; tho course sailed over twice, making twenty-two nautical miles. After eomo preliminary Jockeying theVence dor dashed over tbe Imaginary lino a length ubcad of tho Syce, carrying an Immense balloon jib. The Hyce broke out a balloon foresail as she reached tbo mark, and in addition spread a Jib and reaching Jib topsail. The Vencedor drew away from her rival almost from tbe start, and turned tbe eastern mark twenty seconds In tho lead. They woro timed by the Roiratta Committee as follows: Vencodor, l'J:ll:55; Syce. lS:lti:lB, The Vencedor flattened her sails for the thresh to the Hempstead Harbor mark as soon as she weathered the dory, and made a long leg on the port tack for the buoy oil Prospect Point, while the Syce held on with hor I boom to port fully two minutes later. Tho wind at this time had hauled a little to the southward, nnd for a time the boats could almost lay their course for the socond mark, that loomed up dimly through tho bluo haze that settled over the Long Island shore. The breere became fluky at this stage, and the Syce, standing more to tbo southward, appar ently had tho better of It. Tho Vencedor, which had split tacks, did not seem to bo footing as fast ns ber rival. Tbey camo together when nearing the Hempstead buoy, and For a tlmo It looked as though tho Syce would cross the bows of the Vencodor. but the latter, on the starboard tack, forced the Syce about under her Ico. She wna, however, still In tbo lead until beaded by the batlllng breezes, when sbo was compellod to relinquish her advantage, and tho Hjce w-aa tho first to case sheets around the buoy for the reach homo. 'J hey wero timed us follows: Sice. 1'.':&1:S5; Vencedor. l'.!:fl!!:57. In the mean tlmo the tblrt)-fnotera had heon sent away at 11:00 o'clock, with tho Raccoon, ns usunl, in tho load.

Tho Haccoon reached tho first marl; In ad rnnco of tbe Musmo, while the Carolina kept dropping uteadily astern. In the beat to tbo pecond mark tho Musmo drew upconsiot rably on the Haccoon. nnd, receiving the benefit of a favoring fluke of wind, led hor rival uround tbo Hempstead mark. As u matter of fact bhe lessened the distance between lioraolf nnd Nurotaqultoa little. They wero timed as thoy eased shcots around the buu) as follows: No rota, 1:0(1:23: Musmo, 1:09:.VJ; Raccoon, 1:10:20: Carolina. 1:15:47.

Thu Shark and Wnvo, which had sailed the small trlnnglc, were timed at tbe end of tbe first round in this way : shark, 1:01:D1; Wave, 1:31:58. Tbe Syce continued to Incroaeo her lead after tho yachts hod swung their booms oier to port for the roach to tho eastern mark on the second round, but the Musme ami ltaucouu woru hav ing a "baltlo roval" all the way.

The Uaccoon had a lead of fifteen seconds at this point, hut every foot was coutnstod by I ho Musmo. Tho Caro lina wns hopelessly astern and withdrew after completing tho lint round. Tho Vcmcdor split tacks again with tbo Syce in tho hope of gcttlnga better breeze In along the Lon Island shore, while tho Sue stood oil to tho wostwurd with hor boom tostitrboard, tho result proving that tbo latter course was the wiser.

The wind had hauled still more in thoaoulliwurd during tho second round and increased to n good silling breeze. Tho yachts dropped spinnaker poles to fiort after easing shcots uround tho Hempstead isrbor mark, and with the exception of tholuf flngiuatch hot ween tho Itaccoonund Musmo, the raco ended without furthor incident.
