Low Con.plrntor Ftannlnc (o Put Vp Stat TIrbet Nrit Irar, Every misguided Republican who rotes for Scth Low will remember that act with chagrin und sorrow. Tho candidacy of Seth Low for Mayor of Greater New York is a conspiracy hatched by disappointed Republican office seekers and froo trado Democrats against the Republican party in Oreiter New York, In tho bluto of Now ork, and In tbo United States. It is an effort to split tho Republican party first In Greater Ne-v York, and then In Now York State. If th s can bo accomplished the Democrats will elect n United States Semtor to succeed Ed ward Murphy, Jr. und In 1900 the Democrats will carry tho btato In tho Presidential election. Seth I.OW and the sorehead Republicans and froo trvdo Democrats who surround him hive nominated candidates for tho Assembly. In close districts these nominations will result in sending Tammany Assemblymen to Albany. Seth Low tend his conspirators have nominated candidates for Aldermen and Counciltnen. In closo districts theso nominations vv 111 elect Tam many Aldermen and Tamman) Counciltnen. beth Low's candidacy was Intended to be a wedge with which to split the Republican party in New York State. Tho Low conspirators do claro that If tholr min rccolves a substantial vote for Ma) or of Greater New Yoik thoy will nominate a State ticket next Ml, which includes candidates for Govornor, Lieutenant-Governor, Secretary of State, Comptroller, Troasurer, At torney General, and State Engineer and Sur veyor; and will also noniinato candidates for Stale Senator. Seth Low's conspirators are already engaged in an effort to stab United States Circuit Court Judge William J. Wallace, the Republican can didate for Chief Judge of the Court of Appe its. The Scn announced the foregoing yesterday, and Seth Low's campaign commlttco, headed by Anson G. McCook, issued an official statement last night declaring the announcement to be "absolutely without foundation." McCook's statement is a fnlsehood. The Ship Democracy, which was swallowed by Tam many Hull, still retains lis column on tho ballot. It Is heaaod by tho namo of Alton B. Parker, the Democratic candidate for Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals. Then como the names of Seth Low for Mayor. Charles S. Falrchlld for Comp troller, and John II. Schumann, the cltytlikot of the Seth Low conspirators. Immediately underneath follow the namesof Tammany Hall's county ticket. Every Republican roto for Seth Low will bo a vote to split the Republican party. nAititisox's j'jtAinE of tract. The General Arrive Home nutl Talks About tlie a,ew loru Campaign. lNDiANAroi 18, Oct, 2t). Gen. Harrison reached homo from New York to-day considerably tanned by his sojourn In the mountains. He said ho had been running a crosscut saw and grubbing dur ing tho summer, nnd looked significantly at his hands. When atki d regarding New York poli tics, he said: "As to tho prospects of the campaign, I know nothing. I saw Gon. Tracy several times, but not within a week or ton days of my departure. Ho was busy with his campaign. 1 do not think that any one can predict tbo outenma of the campaign with so many parties In the field. The Information I obtained came chiefly from the Now York papers from day to day. Tho Re publicans whom I met seemed to feel that they were going to win. Thoy appeared to bo since re in that belief, but how much they really knew about It I cannot tell. "Ueu.Trac) was my Secretary of tho Navy and he Is u warm personal friend. He Is a mnn of unusual ability, and lam greatly interested In him. Ho modo a great Secretary. Ho Is a man of Integrity and of chancier and of lndopend ente. I felt a little resentful when I went there and heard some talk of Gen. Tracy being nonio bod)'s tool. That Is mi Impi)i8lblllty. Ho Is capable in the highest degri e of ndmlnlntcrlng thu otllce of Mayor ami has a high sense of pub lic, duty" Gen, Harrison was asked to give an ehtlmntn of Hour) Georgo. and as to hlastnngth asuian illdute. This ho declined to do. Continuing, he "1'saw some of my old Republican friends who wero supporting Low, nnd talked with them. I htve nothing to sa) about Mr. Low. As to epecehos, not talking about eloquent e. Gen. Trac) h making a strung campaign. Tho campaign la In a tanglo that nobodv at this tlmo can toll anything about.
