A Belmtlea 'rent the Haalelaal Colon Crgt Them I'oon Huh MeLanghlla. President Kugeno V. Browster of tho Munici pal Union. Rufus L. Bcott. John A. Quintan), J. P. Farrell, and other members of that organlzo tlon called on Hugh McLaughlin yesterday as advocates of tho nomination of Justice William J, Oaynor for Mayor of the Greater New York. Mr. Brewster and tbo other visitors all spoke of Justice Oaynor's strength with the people, and predicted his triumphant election If made the Democratic standard bearer. After Ustonlng attentively Mr. McLaughlin quietly remarked: "You came here to ask me to boom Judge Oaynor without knowing whether ho would accept the nomination If It were tendered to him, Suppose I were to do as you desire and ho worn to refuse, as he might, Do you think that would be right I Would It not be bettor first to find out w bother ho will accept I" Mr. McLaughlin's suggestion as regarded as an eminently fair one. nnd Mr. BrowBter prom ised logo at once to Great Harrington, where Justice Oaynor Is sojourning, and consult vtilh him. . , ... , , An address was Issued yesterday by the Munici pal Union declaring Justlco Oaynor a "true unifying forro," nnd expressing tho determina tion of tho supporters of Independent bimetal lism to oppose tho gold clement In Its effort to control tho party machlnory. .... "Ono needs," tho nddnss continues, "only to convorso with ono of tho sliver radicals, or to road of the movements of Iholr organization, to seo that tho nomination of a gold Domocrat or tho faliuro to reaffirm tho Chicago platform means most certainly a bolt nnd a third ticket. If the Low movement Is a Plult trick to d .l o tho people, and Low Is to ho the nominee of tho Republican Convention, tho Democratic leaders will seo tho necessity of nominating a man who will imialg.iiimto all tho different factions of tho Democratic party. If, h(iocr, them Is Jo tin Ijw tlckot and a alraight ! ilpiibllcnn ticket In tho field. It scorns unite certain that tho Democratic leadors will mine n fold Democrat, and a stniuh Tammany in.in nt hat, and will rofuso to rimlllrni tho Chicago platform. This, nf course, will mean n four-cornered light, Tho Municipal Union is not pledged to Justlco Oanoror any other man, but until a man appears equal to Justlco Oaynor In record, ability. Integrity, statesmanship, nnd fearless ness, tho union stands first und last for Uay-nor." nOEBEIt'S PZ.EA FOB Z.OXT. The Uttlo Coroner Issues n Manireote Irat or I la salient rolnts. The latest addition to the already Imposing mass of Low-boom literature Is from the pen of Coroner lloober. Tho little Coroner has been out of town for a few days, and he seems to bare spent the time In propsrlng a manifesto, copies of which ho had ready for distribution among tho roportcrs when thoy mado tholr morning calls at his office yesterday. Parts of the docu ment are Interesting, Here are soma of them; " 1 don't seo at all what this election has lo do with politics; tho Mayor and tho Comptroller of the city having as little to do with politics, with Albany legislation, or with the money question aa wo Coroners. "Mr. Low has been nominated on account of his record as Mayor of Brooklyn, and on account of his being known as an able, upright, honora ble man, well Qttod In every possible way to dis charge the duties as Major In tho interostsof all good citizens. "If the Republicans of tho city can Und a better candidate, let them nominate him; but if not, tho fact that Low has hecn nomlnntod before by other Independent Republicans and also by Democrats Is, and should be.no reason why thoy should not cheerfully Indorse him. "if tho Democratic party insist upon having a Democratic Muyor. lot them nominato as good a man as Sutb Low Is, or a better one, anil wo may congratuluto the citizens of Now York for their good luck In having tho choice of two such men. "And If I am asked, as Ihavo been repeatedly, What will tho Germans do f I beg to pay. Tho same as tho Americans.' All good, honest German-Americana will cote for the best candidate. There are German Republicans and German Democrats; there are German free traders and German protectionists; and they arc. therefore, usually divided in their political nctlons. Just as Americans or Irish are, perhaps even a littlo more so. But no Raines law, no Sunday ques tion wlli be so preponderant with honest. Intel ligent Germans that they will Ignore, therefore, all other considerations. "And If anybody or any newspaper wants to make It appear as If they could control the whole German vote or e en n largo portion of It, they make a big mistake. Tho German mind Is very Independent nnd shrinks more from political bosses than almost any other nationality." TTAXTJNO TO HE A It PROM ZOTT. Then the Cits May Go Ahead and Nominate the nest or Their Ticket. The meeting of the Citizens' Union Executive Committee, held yesterday afternoon at 32 Lib erty street, was a tame and uninteresting affair. It was thought tn some auarters that action would be taken looking to the nomination of candidates for Comptroller and President of the Council by the conference commit tees of the boroughs, as well as other candidates, and that the detailed pro gramme for securing such nominations by petition would bo arranged. It was said, how ever, tbat the Cits will refrain from taking further positive action along this lino until thoy hear further from their candldato for Mayor. Mr. Low will be In the city In about a week ready to assume tho active direction of his cam pcign, nnd thero is a feeling on tho part of tho men who nominated him that they ought to let Mr. Low nominato bis running mates on tho ticket. John C. Clark, who 'personally notified Mr. Low of his nomination, made a report to the committee yesterday of the manner in which ho performed that duty. Chalrmnn James B. Reynolds said aftor tho meeting that there was no doubt of tho inten tion of tho Cits to name a full ticket, nnd that their present debt) In themnttcr must not be taken asanecldcnco that they nro weakening or have any idea of abandoning their orignal intention In this regard. Another member of tho Executive Committee said that among men who havo been discussed as posslblo candidates nro Hi nry W. Cannon, K. V. Tiippen, A. B. Hepburn, Chnrles S. Knlrchlld, and J, Hampden Robb of this city, nnd Freder ick A, Schroedcr of llrookljn for Comptroller; ex-Major Scbicrcn of Brooklyn, and JiuncsK. Kelly and Senator Charlei L. Guy of this rlty for President of tho Council. Kelly and Guy arc Purroy Home Rulo Democrats. ZOir HOT TUE OXZ,Y OOOD MAS. Hurley nays Scnroeder, Schleren, and TVnrstsr Have virtues, and Are Loyal Ilealdea. Congressman Denis M. Hurley was the chief speaker at a social meeting of the First ard Republican Club at 218 Fulton street, Brook lyn, last night. After glorifying tho Republi can party for its stand on all great questions of tho day, he thus roferred to tbo present cam paign for control of tho Greater Now York: " In regard to tbo local question, wo intend to stand by the candidate of the Republican party for Mayor. We have no choice at present. Whoever is nominated will get my vote iib well as that of every member of this club. It may be that It will be Low, but the men and tho news papers who are now supporting him will oppose him If he Is nominated, IbopothatthccantlMato of tho Republican party will bo nomlnntod by the Ropubllcan Convention. and I bopo he will win on election do), lie will bo a good man mid an honest num. Mr. Low Is an honest man, hut so aro Mr. Schroedcr, Mr. Schleren, and Mr. Wurstor, and atthosamu tlmo thoy areloul to tho great party wo lovo bo well," Congressman Hurli''s suggestion tbat the Cits' Union candidate did not monopolize all the honesty in tho world was received with applause.

It was tho general belief that Supreme Court Juptlco Alton 11. Parker of Kingston will be nominated by tho committee lor Chief Justlco I of tho Court of Appeals. It wao said that tho Stato Committee will Issue on artdross Insisting that the Democratic batllo bo fought on tho Stato issues alone, and that this address will bo accepted by the City Convention.

Washington, Sept. 7. Secretary Oago of the Treasury Department has received a letter, dated at Dyea on Aug. 22, from an official In another branch of tho Government, giving any thing but a roseate view of the situation there. This official Is on his way to tho mining dis trict, end goes on business for his department. Ho has been in tho service of tho Government about twelve years, and tho Secretary has groat confidence In his judgment, Mr. Gago Is keenly alive to tho serious conditions of affairs, especially In regard to tho overcrowding of I vessels, but tho Information was received too I Into for action this season. The letter follows: "1 deem It my duty to write you on a subject that does not come strictly within my line of duty, as It trenches somewhat upon the funo tlons of the Treasury Department. I havo had a long talk with Mr. Ivey, Collector of Cus toms for Alaska, who Is at present at Skaguay, three miles below hero. Tho Skoguoy troll Is the most largely used overland route (though by no means the bost) to the Klondike. Mr. Ivey Informs me that there are now between tldowaUr and the lake something liko 4,000 poople and about 2,000 horses. Tho command er of one of tho vessels now at Skaguay states that sixteen vossols are chortorod to land car goos at that plnco between now and tho 15th of Septembor, and that tho number of passengers will avoiago 200 to each vessol, making 3,200 moro pcoplo who will attempt to go ill this fall I have talked with somo of tbo most experienced traders and miners In this vicinity, and thoy aro unanimous In tbo prediction that not over 20 per cont, of this vast number will get through to DaWBon before winter sets In. Tho other 60 per cent, will bo caught on tho trail, and those who survive and get back to tldowater will have to winter at Skaguay or return south. If the rush continues two weeks longor hun dreds will Inevitably perish on tho trail, which Is extremely dangerous after the llrst of Oc tober. "Tho Postmastor and Indian trader at this place (Mr. Heron) states that more than 1,000 men havo gone up the Chllkool l'ass during iho pat thirty dajs. and that 700 of them are still this side of tbo lake, twenty -four miles from hero. Vessels aro arriving every day or two, and at tho present rato of Influx another thou sand will enter tho trull by Sept. 10. Mr. Heron Is of tho opinion that not moro than 20 out of 100 will got through, and bo says this trail is far moro dangerous than tho sknguaj after tho snows set In. He Bays If tho rush con tinues another week the result In loss of life will be appalling. I attach tho greatest weight to what he says, for tho reason that It Is to his pecuniary interest to havo ns many as poslblo como this way, yet ho advises an Immodiato stoppago of the stampede. It is dltllcult to suggest a way to stop this Inrush of people, hut Mr. Ivey Intimates that if the inspection rulos of the Treasury Department were properly en forced It would materially decrease iho num ber of passengers on tho Incoming vessels. Near ly every vessel thai arrives hero brings tnico as many passengers ns tbe law allows it to carry, und many of them aro condemned craft w tilth have been fitted up for this trade. 31 r. Ivey will no doubt nt once prc-cnt tho f.iets outlined above to the proper authorities, and I merely give them to you for jour Information. Tho situation is appalling, and it is Impossiblo for me adequately to describe the mad rush for tho gold fields. I hud no conception of its Im mensity till I saw. "I havo talked with several nun who have recently arrived hero from tho Klondike, two of whom loft there less than thirty days ago. They uunnlinously agree that while there Is a rich gold Meld there tho facta do not Justify tho present stampede, and they say thero Is bound to be much suffering and actual starvation. I'rov islons aro already scarce and the prices of many articles absolutely prohibitory in tho cnc of a man of ordinary means. "Mv ububI good luck lias attended mo here. Mr. fleron. tbe Fostmnstrr. Is an old Montana friend and he has made It possible for mo to go f oi word by Indian carriers at tho prevailing rate 137 cents per pound), taking prccodenco over hundreds, many or whom have been here two or three weeks, awaiting their turn, llu assures me he can make the way easy for mo at the lake In securing a boat, Ac. r-o I feel comfortably sure of going right through. "The mall facilities aro very bad here, as tbo Post Office Department bos not mnde nny al lowance for tho rapid growth of postal business. The postal authorities hero aro tmwerless to cope with tho mass of mall matter, and I havo I doubts ns to whether this letter will reach Its destination. I am forced to close this letter to catch a boat which is about to leave, and I am leaving unsaid some things which I shall have to Include In my next letter." LIFE IX DAITSOX AS IT IS.

I wish I bad them up here. I could easily sell them for $1,200. I saw a team sold to-day for $1,100. They wero not as good as my colts. I offered tho man $950 for them myself. I could earn from $00 to $75 a day with them If I had them. I sold tbe mule I brought from Seattle for $200. Sho cost mo $10 In Seattle. I havo tbo horse left, and which also cost mo $10 in Seattle. I am making more than $25 a day with him. Ho will not last over a week longer, though. The only feed that can be had hero for horses Is flour, and the horses do not do well on it. It is very rxpenslv e feed, too. It costs $240 por ton. "Mr. Peters and myself could not resist the temptation toget in on the DaneonClty real est. no boom, so we hive bought a lot 50x100 fret In size, paying $2,700 for it. That breaks me for the present. "I will not be able to come out on this boat. If I can only coax tbe old horse to live until winter I wiflcoinooulon tho ice. "Harry, Ihavo seen moro gold since coming hero thin I ever saw In nil m life. Tho mine owners' cabins are stored with gold. There nro old rubber boots, old tin cans, nnd anything and evcrj thing lu which It can be put lying nround fHle.1 with it. " I paid your father 50 cents for an Iron block, which I sold here for $0. The only trouble Is we havo not goods enough to sell. Wo wero wrecked while coming down the river and lost a lot of things. Luckily we escaped paying duty altogether. The duty In most cases is moro than tho first cost of tbe goods. "This is a good country so far as making monoy Is concerned ; but I tell j ou, Harry, a fel low gets mighty hungry. I haven't had a square meal since f left Seattle. Meals costSl.SOhere, and they consist of bacon and beans chiefly. "Wages oro $10 a day for common labor. There aro a great many idle men about Dawson, but no one seems inclined to pay loss tban $15 a day. The country Is hardly fit for a wblto man to live in. It la all n cheerless, dreurr Arctic waste, where naturo has no sign of Joy, and tbo conditions aro the hardest imaginable. " If I can make a little outside of what I hove pill In that lot I will come out the first part of the winter. I may got a good chance to go out after horses. Illrh Gold from Htm, Montreal, Sept. 7.

It Is said that tho difference between success ful and unsuccessful railroad manngctnent It that the former gots the utmost power nnd carry Ingcapnclty posslblo out of Its rolling stock. Tho highest train load per mllo per engine Is what tolls the story. It is the train of half emptj cars, tho cnglno wasting half Its power, that njake bankrupt railroads. Tho prlnclplo Is capable of wldo application to domostlo life, for example. Tnko tho coal range. Perhaps the rualn objec tion to It, scientifically stated, would bo that It Is a wasto of rower. It develops tremendous energy, but It (Iocs not apply It where needed. Tho gas range, on iho other hand, yields every atom of Its energy Just nt tho lime and plnco roqulred. So the gas rnngo In domestic monjigo ment stands for w lint tho maximum of freight per mllo per engine docs in railroad manage ment. That Is to say.lt Is an appllanco oporatliig at full power, and none of tho power Is wasted. Hence its sudden and growing popularity. Adr. OHIO OOLIt DEMOCRATS.

The flherltr Keoldeel Tor a III Overcharge In Ula Aiiellonrem Fees. The ears of Sheriff Tamsen wero mode to tingle by tbe Supreme Court yesterday In a de cision handed down by Justice Itussell, In which he lops off a large part of the Sheriff's bill for services In selling the effects of Sypher & Co., dealers In articles of vcrtu. Tho firm went un der as the result of sev cral Judgments, the first and largest of which was taken by Henry La zlnsky for $ "3,401. Counsel for some of tho creditors claimed that because of a subterfuge ot the Sheriff ho should lose all his charges, but Thomas Allison, to whom tbe caso was re ferred, savs tbat the whole bill cannot bo thrown out on this ground, and the court in this respect sustains the referee. When the Sheriff seized the effects of tho firm, which wero supposed to be north ?200.000, it was decided that it would be better lo havo them sold by Kirhy Sz Co. at the American Art ! Association rooms, as tbey would fetch more I that whj than if sold by ICleinau, Lutz & Co., tho sbcnlf o regulir auctioneers. KIrbj A: Co. oilcrcd to lake the job for lu per cent., providing thej did not have to givo Kleinuu. Lutr & Co. moro th i -h per icnt. But Klelnau, l.utz & Jn. demanded U per cent., so Kirbj .'c Co. said they would have to charge 10-j per cent. The usual charge In the sherlil s oilico is 5 per cent.. nndTmiK-en did not wm a bill of 10a percent. for auclionec.s charges on record, therefore Kirbj &: Co. were instructed to make their hill rod 5 percent, us commission, or 5,;io 33. ana to fill it out with other charges so as to make the aggregate lC-j per cent. The vv ay tbev tilled It up is as follows: Uieeif til" giellerlen $4, 00 00 Uftu 1 fore- at the art gal erles l,s& ire Fxtra labor AIM 43 I'nntlDi M3 00 Betting up eu-s BK 00 Tho record suited Tamsen, so he added his other charges, making iho total bill for cervices SleJ.SH tfy. All butCrcditorl.izinskj.who wus sure ot his money, as bis lien came llrst. kicked al tbo bill, but Iiefcrec Allison allowed tho Sheriff $leJ.071.31. The halo realized ?117, t06.t0. With regard lo the auctioneers bill, the referee saj s "It is urgeei that these charges In the form of the bill and In tho specifications of items wcio mndo for fraudulent purtaisei, and with r. view to mislead and deceive the- Court, the referee, and counsel lor the contestants," and th.il tho vhole bill should be disallowed. The refereo rijs that in anj event the r-heriff would bo en titled lo actual service perforpicd, an 1 regard ing the Bction of the sheriff sajs: "Thewholo matter was a mere matter of form, and the ton fusfuii nro-e noni an honcl attempt to con form the lortn of tho bill to the reuulrcincnts mndebv the sheriff In pursuance of the rules ai d practice of lilsolllcc," Iho refereo does not saj what tho rules and practico of tho citlleei are, but it appeared before him lhal it Is cuttomaiy to charge nut 5 per cent. Justico Itus-.cH refuses to confirm the report of tho referee in the charges ot tbe auctioneers, but cuts off tho 3 percent, which was to goto Klcinau, Luiz & Co. which amounts to 3 234 11", and also disallows a further item of ISSI71 ." for advertising. The Justice saj s: "ll is plain from the testimony and fioui tho referee's report that the olllcl il auctioneers performed no additional serv Ices entitling them to compensation bej ond thnl p eld to the actual auctioneers. It is No plain that without tho Intervention of tho Mieritf's nurtioneers Kirby 4: Co. would have performed thu services for t he commission of 7h percent., nnd tho Slier cent, would have been saved to the fund. If the fact tbat tbo sheriff auctioneers bed given official bonds to Iho Sheriff was of im.'ortnnco iho Sheriff could havo required Kirbj A: Co. to h wo dono tho same for this special occasion.
