S.iivTHKisTHtttnoTt, Me., Bept, 3. Selh Low I
at cep' 'd formally this morning- the nomination i
for M.ir of Now York by the Citizens' Union.
Just bcloro 11 o'clock, the tlino set Inst nlcht by I
Mr. Low fur tho formal notification of till
nomination, .1. C. Clark, tho special mossonser
to Mr. Low from tho Union, arrived at tho Loir
unitniT 1101111'. Four reporters wero present.
Without iciemony or wait Mr. Clnrk salil:
Mr. 1-ow, I havo tho honor on behalf oftho
Clticns' Union to tender you the nomination
(orMn)ur ot Creator New York."
Mr Clark thrn road tho lottcr of notlfloatlon
ttom tlio Citizens' Union to Mr. Low, who Its
tend attentively nnd then sail!:
".Mr. Clark, I am deeply moved by the paper
jom have Just rend to mo. I rcnllzo tho eolem
nllT of thn call that Is made upon mo, and ray
oVe-M-i bss been reached, not lightly or
trn. .-htli-i-ly. hut soberly nnd In fenr of God.
By w.iy of reply I hnvo propirod a stntemont to
th pu ''tr, which will be followed In a fow days
by i f jruiil letter of acceptance."
Mr. Low then rend this:
"At soon ns 1 can I shall prepare a letter
formally accepting tho nomination for Mayor of
"civ York offered me by tho Citizens' Union,
sctlnc nn behalf of Its own membership of 28,
OoO ut.zcns. nnd alo on behalf uf 102,000
other i Itlrcni, who, without regard to party
aftViatlnn, havo exproMod over tholr own slg
nstures thn dcslro that I should bo nominated
and dieted.
"In my view, tho nomination has thus heen
virtually already ntado by tho people. No pa
triot, under ouch clrcutus'nnooa, could decline
to stand, un'css ho wero preparod to dlscnurago
tcn In loial matters all spontaneous move
ments by tho people outside of the limitations I
of pi-' .
"Th'-e eems to be an Importnnco attaching
to '! ler of nomination at this juncture on
the i d those apparently inclined to be con
trolled l'v this expression of tho popular doslro
th.it. per onally, I fall to understand. What
teems to mo vital Is that thoso who nominate
me should understand my position In tho cam
paign nnd the spirit In which I shall administer
the government of tho city In the evont ot elec
tion. "On theso points my letter to tho Citizens'
Union of Juno 7 supplies most of the Informa
tion that is necessary. What is lacking I shnll
try to supply In my formal letter accepting this
proffered nomluat'.on.
"P"lltlcsl campaigns are. In this respect, llko
real luttlos. They are rcldom fought out on
ti-e plans originally laid down. Tho situation
with which 1 am called upon to deal Is esson
ttal y dltlercnt from that which I contemplated
In .1 inc.
"Other also must face tho changed conditions.
I nnd all who are concerned must make their
choice in tho presence of conditions ns tnev are. I
Lot ns they may wish they ere. I am not so i
vain as to tollove that the unprecedented ex
I -e slon of populnr confldenco on which my
candidacy is based, and for which I am mora
grateful than I am able to say. Is In any over
whelming teno a personal tribute only. I think
it rather means that tho people are deeply
moved by tho desire that, when the great city
begins Its new career, it shall to so with a man
date from the voters to the officials of the city
that the welfare of the city, not of any party. Is
to he their first concern.
1"For that principlo I am known to stand. For
It I ehall contend In the coming campaign, with
inch aides as time may bring; but for It I shall
I'.acd, ho my friends few or manv. Pecause
the Citizens' Union stands for this principle,
and because I am In sympathy with lu general
purposes. I shall gladly accept Its nomination,
snd I ihall welcome all support from any quar
ter tint recognizes tho position that I occupy."
This ended the formalities. President Low
Hid he wnnld probiblv nnke public his letterof
acceptance by the middle of next week. Further
than this ho declined to make any statement.
lw's Portrait IHapliijed Artec tbe Bews from
Maine Wa Received.
Chairman Jamos B. Reynolds of the Citizens'
Union Executive Committee waited patiently
yesterday morning at bis desk In tho headquar
ters, 3') East Twenty-third street, for tho an- ,
nouncoment that Mr. Low had nccepted tho
Union's nomination for Mayor. It came in tho
form of a telegram from f-'ecrctnry John C.
Ciurl. rhortly before noon, and tho dapper ill tie I
Cbaii-in in began to hust'o tho headquarters '
force of employees to make n demon-.tratlon In I
honor of tho event. Tho Stars and Htripes wero I
unfurled over the Union's white banner, and a I
very gaudy campaign portrait of tho candidate
was set up over tho entrance. This portrait
vas In Its way somewhat allegorical. It repre
sented tho contempt of tho Union for national
Issues. It was Murrotinded by n painted gold
frame. Tho background of the picture was
done In silver, and tho artist had used tho real
socialistic rod in painting Mr. Iow's rojy
When this combined portrait and platform
had been displayed Chairman Iteynolds found
tinio to say that ho hod expected the ncccptauco
and nas pleated that It had hoen made so I
hfloru wero made to got Mayor Strong to '
talk about tho nccrptance, hut ho would say
nothing moro than that. In this freo country,
Jlr Low had u. right to accupt tho nomination If
he choie to do so.
The loaders of tho organizations which agreed
to confer with tho Itcpiibllcan organization
Wfiiil.) not talk ulxjut tioi-dblo cundldats. They
aid that it would bo out of plaro 111 udvanco of
the comontion. Theso aro to he held on Hojit,
i. 'liny will appoint conference committees
to niako up a ticket, nnd on tuceo conferee will
auvolro the Uok of choosing tho Mayoralty
nouilnie. They Fnld that tho confereos ought
to go into tho conference without being hound
to tho support of uny particular eundliiuto, but
reaqy to accept the one who would teem to
Prnvo tho strongest.

Itepubllcans Over There Take Mora laterestla
tbe right Against Worth.
Tho hot contest which Is on between ths
Worth-nuttllng and tho Wlllls-Attorbury fao
tions In llrooklyn appears to Interest tho Ho
publicans much mora acutely than tho political
fato of Scth Low. Even Mr. Low's formal ao
ccptanco ot tho Citizens' Union nomination ex
cited Httlo couuuont outside tho ranks of the
octlvo politicians, noarly all ot whom regarded
It as eliminating him from the consideration ot
the Republican Convention, Mr. Willis thus
dismissed It: "Wo aro nut bothering ourselves
about Mr. Low's nomination. It will hats to
tnko caro ot Itself."
Mayor Wurster, who Is keeping himself freo
from factional ontanglomonts, mado tills com
ment: "I havo boon onposcd to Mr. Low's nomi
nation, unless It could be effected by tho har
monious action of all tho organizations op
posed to Tammany Hall. It Is to bo regretted
that a different policy was not pursued."
Even Mr, Low's warmest frlouds in llrooklyn
woro surprised nt tho significant indifference
manifested to his candldaoy. It Is understood
that they havo called n halt on tho proposition
to organizo a fresh return postal card voto, and
probably no effort will be mado to raibo tho
$7,000, tho estimated cost of tho Job.
The rival Republican loaders woro again up
to their oyes yesterday in tho work of tircnartng
for tho primaries, which aro to bo held, unless
the progrumuio U changed, on Kept. Ul. Tho
ntiro list of delegates to the twenty-one As
Fembly district conventions whlrh will seloot
I the delegates from tho llrooklyn borough to tho
City Convention nnd all tho local conventions
will bo thoscii on that night.
Mr. Worth will hnvo to show bin hand at tho
meeting ot tho County Committee, on Hcnt. 14.
and if an attempt is made to rido rough'sliod
over his oppoucnu, them may bo n regular
split In tho organization, which will lie carried
to tho polls. A Imlt Is almost mira to onsito,
should Worth curry out his threat to arrange
matters m that there can ho mi nppesl to the
County Comuilttco acainst alleged frauds at
the ni'imnrlcd.
Jtr. Worths assuniod IoaitcrhIp, a stal
wart Twenty-third ward Itcpuhllean mid last
night, "may result In the placing of two rlv ll
Kepubllcan tickets in the Held this yoar. Ho is
treading on ery dangerous ground in Ida at
tempt to stranglo tho rlghU of tho rank ami
file of the party. If our side does not reeclvo
fair treatment, we will walk out of the conven
tion nnd nomlnnto candidates of our own."
There was a rumor yesterday that oven Sher
iff Huttllng was disgusted uver aomo of Worth's
recent performances, and had been trying to
restrain him from his headstrong policy. In
splto of tho Sheriff's fidelity to Worth In tho
struggle for supremacy in llrooklyn, ho does
not lndorso tho latter a apparent support ot
"I am still in favor ot tho candtdnto of tho
Republican City Convention, whoever ho mHy
be, ho said yesterday.
It was learned last night that ex-May ..r Fred
A. Schroedcr is the first choice of the Willls
Atterbury contingent for tho nomination for
In Low's Acceptance Thrj ProfMa to See Tic
tory A.anrea Tor Tbelr Own Candidate,
If there was any ono moro pleasod yesterday
than James 1). Reynolds and tho other Clt en
thusiasts over thn news that Seth Low had ac
cepted tho nomination ot the Citizens' Union
for Mayor, it wus tho avcrago Tammany Hall
leader. Few of them would talk about the ac
ceptance, following the example of their chief,
John C. tjbeehan, but they all smiled broadly
when the matter was referred to, and ex
Police ComtnUsloncr James J, Martin in tho
xubcranco ot his oy asked gloatingly of a Sln
"Where is tho Republican party now!" Ho
evidently did not expect an answer, for ho
continued In Joyful strain to say that Mr. Low '
acceptance of the Independent nomination was
a turegono conclusion.
"I wonder, though," ho said, "if Low thinks
that fato enrollment and petition Is genuine.
If ho doos, he is ono of a very few who aro of
that mind. 1 sat in! a! barber chair jestcrday
nnd heard a man in the next c.halr rotate ids ex-
Eericnoe with the Low petition. Ho said ho I
ad signed it twice, and a friend ur his hnd ,
signed It eight limes, but neither of them would
vote for Low under any circumstance. Tho
man said that he and hi. friend did this and got
n. 1 the signers they could, simply because they
woro friends ot the canvassers employed by
the Citizens' Union, who told them that ho
had to get at least UOO signaturos a day or ho
could not keep his Job."
The Joy of tho Tammany leaders over tho
situation proceeds from tho belief that tho lie- i
, publicans will nomlnato another candlaate for
.Mayor tn.iri Loiv, nnd that the ranks of tho i
I enemy wil. bo divided so that Uicy will hat o
plain sailins for their ticket. "Ihey were em-liarras-cd
for a tlino bccaiieo of tho clashing
I demands of tho goldbug. and tbe Ilryanltcs.
I Un the one hand were the moneed men, with
I nil the promises of campaign funds und n de-
I in ami that tho Chicago platform be ignored if
I not repudiated. On the other wero the radical
Ilryanltcs, who cast tho majority of tho lJ3,0iO
votes polled for tho Tammany ticket last year,
I insisting Just as strenuously that the Chicago
1 platform bo reaffirmed, with iho addition of a
plank provldnig for municipal ownership and
operation of franchisor. liow to reconcllo
thoso two factions or satisfy them both woa ths
dlMlcult problem offered for their solution.
Ther wore fcatLaflod yostirday that Mr. 1-ow
had helped them out of their difficulty. They
could now take the side of boodle: insist on n
purely local platform, and rely on the organiza
tion to keep the radicals in Una, or, it not all of
them, at least enough to make victory against
a divided enemy a certainty.
Tho Ilryanltcs realized vssterday that tho ac
ceptance of iho CltUeus' Union nomination by
I Mr. Low had decided the Tammany leaders to
adopt this course. Tboy were assured that
1 sume of their men would be nominated on ths
Tammany ticket for minor places and told that
they ought to bo satisfied with this arrange
niont and not expect the candidates for .Mayor
or for Supreme Court Justices to bo of their se
lection. They wero not at all satisfied with
this arrangouieut. Their position was stated
by one of them, who said:
"Our first concern In this campaign Is to
koep the regular Uemocratlo organization truo
to Uemocratlo principles as slated In tho na
tional platform. After that wu want to see
moil nominated and elected who nro and havo
boon truo to thoso principles. Especially ilo
wo want a Mayor and a Munlolpal Aesembly
that will do all they can to curry out our
Idea regarding municipal ownership and oper
ation of franchises. If Tammany reruses to
glvo us all or any of there, as . eems probable
now, there is nothing left for us to do but lo
tako Independent action, nominate a ticket of
our own, and light for its election. Not that 1
believe such a ticket would be elected. I think
tt.nl Tammany would win even with such a
tlckot In tho field, but If Democratic principles
. am worth anything they nro worth fighting for
I nt tho polls rather than submitting to Turn
mauy's evasion ot tho Issues.
"It Is not nearly so essential that a Chicago
phttform Democrat shall be elected Mayor as
It Is that Democrats of that strliio shall bo sent
to Congress. There will bo an election for Con
giessmrn next year. Hhould the Iiryan men
cnntc.il this your to Mr. Shechnn s plan for n
municipal campaign, ho would Ignore us next
I yenr when wo domnnd the nomination of good
Chicago platform Democrats for Congress. On
the other hand, if we rofuso to accept his plan
of campaign und nomlnnto a ticket uf our own
this year and poll for It a good strong voto,
Mr. t-heslian will be only too willing to concede
our demands in 18U8."
Lender Hhoohan wua kept busy ysjsterday re
ceiving delegations from Independent organiza
tions which hnvo suggestions to make regarding
. ciindldutes. Tho first represented tho so-called
1 ndiiHtrial Council of Greater Now York. It. M.
Cumpboll of Typographical Union No. tl was its
Chairman, but ouch of tho other eight mombera
of tbe delegittlou was as much a spokesman us

Ho Irt Ian rranrtaro on Monday and,
Acted Insanely on His Journey III. Slope
ment In Juno Last with Mr. John Ilradbnrjr,
CiilOAOO, 111., Sept. 3. A man named H. Rus
sell Ward Jumpod to doath from tho window of
a stateroom In ths stooping car Crotton early
this morning while tho Northwestern's Ovor
lnnd Limited was near Wheatland, la. Ho was
tho man who recently achiovod notorioty by
eloping with tho wife ot John M. Ilradbury, tho
young Ban Francisco millionaire.
Ward took tho train on last Monday night at
San Francisco, buying a ticket for ilullalo. Ho
told tho portor, C. M. Callaway, that ho was
going to his family In England, nnd made no
erfort to conceal his Identity. To nil In tho car
tho man appeared of unsound mind. Ilo barri
caded himself in tho stateroom which ho occu
pied, and stood guard at tho door with a revol
ver several ttinos.
He retired early last night, and was seen In
his berth by the porter at 2:110 o'clock In tho
morning. When the train reached De ICatb, III.,
ho was called, but no answer was received,
Portor Callaway crawled through tho window
of the stateroom whllo tho train was at a stand
still, and found that the door had been locked
from the Inside. As tho window was open, and
as nil of Ward's clothes wore In tho seat, there
was no doubt that ho had thrown himself from
tho train.
Telegrams were sent to tbe stations along tho
lino of the railroad, and when the train reached
Chicago at 7:45 o'clock this morning tho con
ductor was informod that tho body of a man
clad only In his nightshirt had been found on
tho tracks near Wheatland. Tho Idontlty was
established when tho atutlon agent at Whoat
land telegraphed that in tho pocket of tho night
shirt had been found a draft for $100, mado out
to IL Russell Ward, and a Sau Francisco hotel
bill, mado out to tho same man. The effects of
tho dead man wero taken to the olUco of the
Pullman Palace Car Company.
A squaro leather sutchel and various articles
of clothlrg comprised tho baggage found In tho
stateroom. In tho satchel were a revolver nnd
a heavy knife, with which the porter says the
man armed himself frequently n hen he sccmod
under tho illusion that somoone was trying to
kill him. Porter Callaway related his story to
his superlntendant and declared it to be his be
lief that Ward was insane.
"When ho got on tho train ho wis accom
panied by a man who told me that tho passenger
was the Ward who had been connected with tho
Itradbiiry seind.il," said tho porter. "At al
most every stop Ward gale mo a telegram lo
send. The first one was to some mnii In Los I
Angeles nnd It said that Ward expected to bo j
re arrested ni imcugo.
" ' If Mrs. Bradbury wants me to anpe ir I will j
do so at any time I can, but I must first seo my
wlfo and children,' was tlionaj the despatch
" Hewasnlwnys wanting something and tell
ing mo to be near him to act as a witness. At
Fremont, Nob., ho gain me nn unlgned tole-
frram to the chief of detectives lu Chicugo, ask
ng him to have a policeman lu mcel a mun In
tbe stateroom in tho overland train, lie. auso
It was not signed the operator would not send
It. so 1 pul his initials on the bottom."
This despatch was received it I'ulico Head-
auarters on Thursday eicnlng, and Detective
roderick met the train, but, of course, wasuot
wanted. Callaway says that Ward seemed to
fearsome person, and would allow no ono hut
John Drew, tho actor, who was going East to
his mother a funeral, and who was In the samo
sleeper, to corao Into his stateroom.
Mr. Drew did not stop long in Chicago, and
could not be seen. Ward was released from ar
rest In Ban Francisco on last Snturd-iy, and It Is
supposed that he started ut once to return to
England, where bis family arts said to be living.
Ban Franciboo. Cal., Sept, J. Tho suicide of
IL Russell Ward cuused no great amount of
surprise In the city where he was disgraced
by his arrest for adultery with Mrs.
John R. Uradbury. Ward had been in town
ever since ho was takcu Into cuslody. tho
contlnuanco of his case from tlm to time delay
ing his Intended departure to Ills wife in Eng
land. These contlnusnces, however, wero a
part of the plan to allow public prejinli.-o to
change, to that his rel. ase might I e secured
without attrni ling much conimi nt.
On lasi BUurda) Iho charge ngalnst him was
dismissed on the ground that there was Instil!!
clenl evidence to hold him for trial. The evi
dence was lacking only because Mrs. Ilrad
bury was out of thn State and could
not bo used ns n witness. During his
stay here Wnrd was shunned. Ho wis
r..ognlzed hy no one, and If he had friends they
wero careful to keep their feelings for him
bidden. Ho was seen around town moro or less,
but never with a companion. It wasno'lie.1
along the "cocktail route" th.it ho felt his posi
tion keenly. Hu grew uurose, und during the
last week or so it wis seldom that he had u
wnrd to say to any one.
Those here who know Ward bellovod that ho
was insane when huioinmlt tod suicide, nil hough
thero were no positive indications of It. Ilefore
hu took the train on last Monday It was re
marked at the time that If ho did nol cease
brooding he would curtainly lose his mind.
It Is snld that Mrs. llrndr.ury's desertion
really nau more crrect on turn tn in uls arrest ror
adultery and tho notoriety gained through tho
whole escapado. Thoso who had associated
with him say he really lovod Mrs. Rrodbury.
and when tho woman cast him off of ter having
declared undying affoctlon for blm ho became
very morbid.
While Ward's caso was pending he wns re
leased on ball, and meantime his wife In Eng
land cabled him funds. He was atnylns, at tbe
Grand Hotel. There bo paid his bill nn i
Monday and purchased a ticket for Chi
(ago. Ho said he was going through to
London and did not ever expect to return I
to America. On the train his actions were
not unusual. Ho kept to himself entirely, nnd
only got off at Port Costa to bur n newspaper.
That was tho last of his acts noticed In this
Slate. No olio here knows about Iho telegrams '
he is said to have been sending almost hourly on
hlswayEsst, If they have beon rctolved thoso
to whom they wore dellvored are not willing to
admit It.
Mrs. Dradhury Is now enjoying a now honey
moon trip with her own husband through
Mexico. Tho Panama steamer which came
un yesterday brought the news that
the couple nro at Iho Tnjn mines. In i
which Col. Ilrndbury Is Interested. They
went from New York to Mazatlnn. They Joined
the steamer Aenpulro at tho isthmus, snd wero
on tbe vessel ton dnys. During tho voyage up
tho coast the steamer's ofllcers say that Ilrad
bury was devotad to his wife.
Cl.trtTON, la., Bept, a. Tho crow of tho second
section of train 10 on tho Chicago and North
western road found tho body of a man clad in his
ulghtshlrt besldo the track half a mllo west
of Wheatland, I .. They went on and a train
following later brought the remains to Wheat
land, where a Coroner's Jury was impanelled
and an Inquest held. An examination ot the
body revealed a had bruise on hla hip and a doop
cut on tbe forehead, which was tho injury that
had caused death.
Tho identity of tho duad man was disclosed ns
II, Russell Ward. The Coroner's Jury rendered n
verdict of accidental death. Tbe man was nji
piirently DS jonrs old, and weighed about 170
pounds. Tho face was smoothly shaven. Ex
amination of tho injury on thn head loaves no
doubt that death was instantaneous.
In tho latter part of Juno II. Russell Ward

Tho terms of tho proposition were that thn

vances In tho other States. This rato Is to Ik In

which shall bo agreed to prior to that tlmo by

This proposition waa offered by the operators
as their ultlmntum, nnd after n conference be

Hoird. tho announcement was mado that tho
proposition would bo a. ccptcsl. This action on
tho part of tho miners' olllclnls must bo ratified
by tho miners themselves, and with that pur
poso In view a national conicntlon of tho
miners has been called to bo held in this city on
Tuesday and Wodnosday of next week.
Thu e ircular calling tho convention wns Issued
to-night. It recites the basis of settlement nnd
r commends that thn miners agrco tn tho propo
sition. Tho call Is signed by all tho members of
the National Executtvo Hoard. This plan docs
away with arbitration entirely.

first proposition ot the oporators, to pay the Cl
ient rato pending arbitration, which should do-
cldo upon n rato between 00 and 00 lentH,
was ngaln ollerod, but was rejected by
tho miners. Tho latter then suggested that
work bo resumed at tho tit-cent rato, and
the award of the arbitrators should bo somo
rato between 01 und 110 cents. This
proposition was rojocted by tho operators, who
then offered their ultimatum, which was ac
cepted. Tho operators and miners' officials ap
pear satisfied and foci confident that this action
will bo ratified by tho miners' convontlou.
President Rnlchford In an Interview to-night
snld that In his opinion there was no doubt that
thoconientlon called would ratify tho action of
tho conference. Ho also said that tho minors
would resumo work In ono weok from this time.
He said the agreement real bed to-day wus in Hie
n.iturcorn compromise, and thatli secured for
tho miners In Ohio and Pittsburg nn in
crease ot 11 cents a ton until next
January, when a new scale would bo agreed
upon. This was only 4 cents less than
the price demanded nnd probably as good arc
suit as could halo been secured by arbitration.
