I-" The Marquis Apeztlgula, one of tho loader of W the Cuban Loyalists, arrived In lull city jester- jft dayonLaChampsgne. Blnce lost January he Sir ha been abroad, for th6 greater pert of the time iif, In Madrid, whero ho went to attend tho sessions Wii of th Cortes. Ho l a member of tho Senate. f ZJaat erenlne ho spoko freely with a reporter of JL' Tn 8un about tho temper of Spain and tho W situation of Cuba. VS Although a Liberal In Spanish politics and to that extent a sympathUerwith and supporter of $ tho Bagasla Government, the Marquis is not In ' sympathy with tho present Cuban policy of S' Spain, tho granting of nutonomy to the colony, for ho docs not belle vo that It will solve tho 4 problem no has been represented as a rulo In v tho papers of this country as a leader of the Au-i- tonomlat party, but such representation has & been erroileous, ho says, for ho is an Asslmlllst, and though ho makes common cause with tho Autonomists against the Insurgents, ho looks to , assimilation Instead of segregation as tho final 3j Beans of bringing dosco to tho Island. i So far as tho war Itself Is concerned the Mar- if qnls thinks that the campaign about to bo r begun by Blanco and his Chief of Staff, Gen. I'ando, will deal a tlnnl and crushing blow to W the insurgonts. Ho bases this opinion first on the progress mado by Weyler (notso great, how la UTtT' ne 8aT' Ba Bll0uul liavo Dcen opected) and Te on bis confldonco In the ability, tact and energy & Of Blanco and Pando. The Marquis alto spoke M of tho Kcnoral kindly feeling of Spain, its Gov- ernment and people, toward this country, say fr tag that although they felt they had cause of G complaint, thoy woro still friendly and war f could arlso only on ovldenco of tho groatest nn v friendliness on tho part of the United States. ., As President of the Union-Constitutional X- party, the Marquis Is the representative of the f bItra-Spanlsh class who believe that Cuba t should be ruled with an Iron hand, who aro much in sympathy with tho Weyler policy. Do- ;. spite bis sympathy with the weyler policy, ho opposed Wey.er himself, and it is generally i Understood that ho remained abroad in f order to bo away from Cuba whllo Way s' for was Captaln-Goneral. The relief of 3 Weyler and tho appointment of Blanco left fl btm free to return to bis borne, but he Is ns much opposed to the lllenco policy as he was to v Weyler personally. He thinks that lllanco will ff end the war. but ho docs not think tbatany IC thing but tbo old-tlruo 8panlh colonial polity S? will solve the problem, simply for tbo reason - that he does not think the Cubans capable of i governing themselves. Sr "As 1 have not been In Cuba slnco last Jan- f Tiary," be said to the roporter, " I am not in a ! position to make any Intelligent comments on ft the state Of affairs tliera'I havo been in M idrid 5 tho greater part of tho time and am personally f familiar with that end of -it. The present Gov ernmont is tundqubtodly sincere in lta intention f of bringing about the reforms that have becn h plapncu, ana thoso reforms-will bo made by ? Gen. Hlnnco with nil possible haste, lam not K. in sympathy, ttitb.thcni. Although a Liberal in S Spanish politic In Cuba I' am an Assimlllst. i. Our end 'IS t the same as that of the .f Autonomists, tbo pacification of the island, the ') restoration of Its former prosperity, and its t continued existence as n Spnnli.li colony. The Autonomists call for a Cuban Ministry and a s Cuban Congress of two bouses to take care of all administrative matters, referring to tho con s' tral powcrV tho metropolis (Madrid), all powers if' of sovereignty. I cannot consider that aeolu fr tlon of the difficulty. I bolievo In tbe policy of r assimilation, by which the cltizenB of the col t ony are Spanish citizens, held togother by t Epanish tradition and enjoying the rlshts 1 of Spanish citizens; governed oy a central I power in which they have adequate represontu i tlon and for matters of administration having , special laws. This is tho old colonial policy of : fcpnln ahd, impaiting as it noes to the colonies i more oC tlio Spanish character of Institutions, . binds them moro closely to the old country. f This Plan. I bjilleve, is rar bettor fitted to tho ; Bpinish than tbe English colonial plan of . antonomy. f" Of course, tbo first thing to do before any plan can bo carried out Is to beat the Insurgonts. i U'hatislhu common causo of allloialists.no 1 matter how they may differ as to the methods -', of odmlnUtennir the affairs of the Island. That ; we will do this I am quite certain. Great ad- Vances havo been made, and the coming cam- f paign will bo decisive. Of that I am most con- y lldent.". " Do yo'a regard the Weyler administration as i' a failure I" X ."The Weyler administration," answorod the -,' Xlarquts", " did not proauco as great results as i. we ctpocted of it; not that he dla not-con- 7 tribute greatly to the lessening of tho rebels' g, power." s "Do you consider tho strength of the In- V BurgentB less than It was a year ago 1" "Most certainly, yes!" be repllod with em- S, phasls. "They havo been losing ground con- vjr Btantly. and with tbo new methods of lllanco f they will be totally subdued." "Why do you think; Bianco will get greater W results than Weyler 1" t?: "For seoral reasons. In tho first place he .)b bas an acclimated army of not 1 ss than 150.000 A' tnen. Ills system of war will be much more 3 effective. Instead of relylni; wholly upon pur- 5 suing columns, as Weyler did, he is going to ? carry out tho moro effective method of -perrua- 6 Hon' occupation. Ho will divido tho Island Into - sections, and carry on the war in each of these Tr. sections under the conditions made necessary bytimo and place. Once in possession of a fti place he will not give it up, and thus constantly & Increasing tho zones or occupation, he will ft gradually drive tho rebels into narrower limits, W until ho can crush them completely. This bo & Will be able to do this winter. The robels have f lost immensely. They have but one set of tao fi tics, but oi strategy of n ar. That has cou Jjf Olsted solely 'i destroying the country far and A wide, harassing both troops and population, ft driving the latter Into tho towns, and doing ffs as much damaee as thoy can. Weyler'a col 0 vmns of pursuit went out and then came S back again, holding none of tbo ground thoy A won. But with a military occupation of ', tbe country that affords protection not only g to the towns but to the rural districts and rural s population tbo chief strength of the rebel will e be taken away. I have great confidence in ' Blanco. He-is able, full of tact and enerpv, and ,5 bo has an nblo lieutenant In I'ando. By this ' policy the rebels will ho divided up into smaller f Groups and their complete subjugation will be a A Blatter of only a short time." H "Is it the intention of Spain to send more jB troops to Cuba!" ft "It it is necessary she undoubtedly will, but fe X do not think it will bo necessary. We have j. lCO.OOO seasonod troops on tbe Island, quite ft SufUUent to finish tho work. Of course now ffi. and then 5,000 or so new troops are sent out to m tako the plat oof tired soldiers who are to go , home, but thcro will not be any larco reinforce rnonts unless, as I said, it should bo deemed pocessnry." Cy: "I'o you think the chnrges of cruolty against E", weyler have becn cxaggeraied 1" x i "I do," answerod thu Marquis. "There has, v X am sure, been no deliberate purpose of cruelty p ontbepartof Spain. Tbe very nature of tho 5 ivar, however, prodmes calamities that have I been attributed to cruulty on both sides.

Union market wa to have becn tbo. scene of a whipping post per formance and threo young thieves were to be punished; but the gathering of an Immense crowd and the appearance of several policemen caused a change of programme. The angry butchers who first Intended to whip tho culprits started to lynch them, but failed. During the excitement George Cough enau, an errand boy, wa stabbed In tbe breast. A number ot the stallkeepers recently organ ized n sort of vigilance committee to capture the thieves who had been stealing from them. The threo caught were negroes, ranging: from 12 to 15 yenrs old. Their capturo was the sig nal for a gathering of tho butchers. "Bring a roper shouted one of the captors, and tho boys wero bound hand and foot. "To the lamppost!" ordered one of the leaders. " Bring a strap and wo will lash them." The frightened boys begged for mercy. By this time fully 1,000 persons were gathered around tho place. Tho negroes were kicked and used routrhly by the butchers, who became more and more excited as the pressure of the sur rounding throngs prevented the application of the lash. The roccs wore untied from the boy limbs and adjusted around their necks. Then several policemen pushed their war through the crowd and added to the confusion. In tbe midst ot which the thieves escaped. Young Georgo Coughennii attempted to atop the flight of the fugitives. One of them turned, nulled a dirk, and plunged it into bis breast.

Dns aatt BWtd by Unseen Band. The old Suydam farm, on Church avenue and Ca arsle lane, Flatbush. closo by the Holy Cross Cemotery, was the sceno of mysterious opera tions on Friday night and Saturday. John Suy dam, tho owner, went to tho barn on Saturday morning to look after the cattle. He caught sight of a pile of dirt which had been dug up only a few hours. Closer inspection revealed to Suydam what looked very like a grave of regu lation size. It was 0 feet long and deep. Suydam had been looking dally from his porch on thousands of graves and gravestones, but his discovery puzzled him. The farm bands ex pressed ignoracce. Tbo barns and outhouses and the Suydam bouse were searched; nothing was missing. At sunrise yesterday Suydam hurried to the Grant street police station and notified Cupt. Knlpo. The Captain, together with Koundsman Knox and Policeman Wren, hastened to the farm. The bole bad becn closed up. but it was clearly marked by a mound ot eirlh. Tbe police, to convince tbemselvoe, poked sticks down through the dirt and it yielded easily. Mr. Suydam ap peared to be amazed. He couldn't account for tho change. All persons nbout tbe place were aucstioned, hut they were unable to throw any glit on the subject. They had not seen any body around the farm or near the hole, so they said. Mr. Suj dam declared that be hadn't seon Mir strangers either. Ho Bald it was possible for one or two men to fill up the hole in ten minutes. He had been absent only an hour.

At the latter every seat In tho house and all of tho boxes were ocoupled. I It was an audience made up largely of persons , whose knowledgo of tho work carried on by the' mission Is confined to what they have read, and it was decidedly not the kind of an assemblage j the MoAuley convert are In the habit ot ad- 1 dressing. At the conclusion ot each meeting a collection was taken up, whloh, It Is hoped, will bo sufficiently Urge to pay tho deficit of last year and provide onough to carry on tho work ' of resone in the lower part of the city during 1808 on a larger scale than ever before. Nearly 2,000 pledges to pay amounts of over a dollar wero rocelved In addition to the cash contribu tions, and it Is believed that the total' trill bo about 010,000. William T. Wardwoll. Prohibition candidate for Mayor at the late election, presided at the afternoon mooting. In an address explaining the work of th mission, ho said: "It was twenty-five years ago this month that the MoAuley Mission was opened In Water i street. It was founded by Jerry McAuley, a , man who but a few months before had been a j tblof, a prlzo fighter, and a tough. He wos a Water street tough, If any of yon know what that means, a river pirate, and even in that ! wicked district in which he lived a terror to tho dive keepers. .... - , , , "Thorescuo mission which he founded Is not ' a school of theology or science. It is not a Keeley cure; ills simply a great light in a dark place, a Bpot whero grace is free. This is tho , spirit and light of tbe Water Street Mission. It is often asked: ' What kind of people do we deal i with I' and 'aro they worthy I In response we I can only say that no certificates ot character aro required, no questions asked, and tbe door are I open to all. . . , . , " We believe that tho whole world can bo I savod by love, and that lovo alono is tho prln- i ciple which can brine about this result. Only a I few years ugo a man In delirium tremens stag gered Into the mission and when asked to say a prayer, glared wildly around and then cried out: 'Lord, give mo sleep!' Ho was taken care of and converted, but in his shattered health lived only a short time. Ho died a Chrlstiau, however, and I say that to save that one soul waa worth all of the efforts ot the men and women of the Water Street Mission." . . Samuel II. Hartley, superintendent of the mis sion, spoke next. "Since you wouldn't come down to us," hr said. " wo thought we'd come up to you. You Aro sitting with more rodeomed drunkards than you over were among boforo in I your llvis. They won't hurt you, though. . Tney're all well dressed and decent men. I can look at some of them from whore I stand, and my, what a transformation since tbe time tbey , came Into the mtssionl I wish you could see them as I soe them. "I am a typical representative of rescue mis- I slon work myself. You should have seen me fifteen years ago, wbon I went into tbo Crc morne Mission. I was Just out of the lock-up and on the verge ot delirium tremens. 1 heard Jerry McAuley say that night that ho had onco been a drunken bum like myself, but had been saved. When Jerry called on those who wanted to he savod to raise their hands mine was the first up, though I'd rathor havo gone out on tho street and fought a dozen men than do It. Jorry made us all walk to where he stood, and then he "'Dear Jesus, pity these poor fellows he said. 'They're in a hole; help them out.' Thou I Sirs. Jerry turned In and said: 'Lord, you saved ' me; do tho sume for thoso poor tellows,' and from that moment I felt I wmb saved." President Frank Moss of the Police Board told somothing ot the history of the Sixth and Fourth wards and the difficulties which the authori tes encountered years ago in changing the conditions there. " We must always have I tho police the courts, ond the Judges to protect I society,' ' he said, " but we must admit that these Institutions only serve to harden the criminal ond render him more desperate. They don't save the souls of men. They rulo them In a measure by fear. It was tbe men and women who went Into these hotbeds of vice and crime withBlblesinsteottot clubs, with kind words Instead. of curses, that w ought the . change. They planted the now famous Five ' Point Mission in an old brewery and thoy taught the children a lesson of lore, a lesson which went Into tbe homes and had Us effect tbore. Nowaday If people .want to see the slums they don't go to the .Five Point. There's nothlnic there for thorn to see. " What the Five Points Mission was to the Sixth ward the McAuley Mission was to tbe Fourth ward. It did thore what the prison, the court, and tho policeman's club couldn't do. It has transformed what was once tbe worst sec tion in the whole city, and it ha done it by the doctrine of love." ..... . Bishop C. C. McCabe of the Methodist Epis copal Church, who spoke next, said that the Jerry McAuley Million was the most wonder ful place In the city, to him. "It illustrates." he continued, "the feet that the day ot miracles is not past; that Jesus is here yet, cleansing the poor, healing tbe sick, and opening tho eyes of the bit d. Jesus is still doing bis work ot salvation, which is, after all, the greatest miracle of all. How easy it Is sometimes to save these unfortunates! " Shortly after the war I saw a drunken sol dier In a railroad car. I got talking to him, and finally said: 'Comrade don't you think the time has come for you to give yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ 1' Thirty years later I met that soldier, and found him a wonderful worker for God. That soldier Is hero on this platform. Would you like to see him I" " Ycsf Yob!" came from all sides OT tho hall. Col. II. H. Uadley. bead ot St. Bart olomow's Mission, stood up and bowed. "Now, friends," Bald Bishop McCabe In con clusion, "go down to this Wator street mission and see for yourselves the work It's doing. Down thore no one Is be) ond hope. Thoy may look It, but they never are." Police Sergeant MoNally, who was for many years In the Oak streot police station, told of tbe good work done by the mission, which ho knew of from personal observation, and then tbo afternoon mooting concluded. At the evening session the principal feature was tho testimony of tbe reformed thieves. gamblers, and drunkards who have been saved y tho mission. It was a sample of what goes on every night in the McAuley Mission, but It was new and evidently very interesting to tbe people In Carnegie Hall. Rube Johnson, who was Introduced by Mr. Hadleyas I he "hi crest bilk that over walked tbe streets." told his story as follows: ' I am 78 rears ot age. As a boy 1 learned to drink. At 30 I was a drunkard; at 501 was n sot. Nino times I went lo an inebriate homo after I was 00 yews of age, and struggled, but failed to accomplish anything. I was on tho verge of dollrlum tremens frr tbe third tlmo, when I slaggored into the MoAuley Mission. There I found Jesus Christ. I saw men there who had been like me; they had reformed and were holding their heads up. I resolved that I could do It If they could, end from that day to this I bare not tasted or desired to taste liquor." James C.Edwards, known in tho mission as " Big Jim," told how bo stagcorod Into the mis sion eleven yenrs ncro a half an hour aftor leav ing n stale-beer dive. He had been a drunkard from boyhood, bo said, and hadn't a friend in tho world. Ho was savod, he said, and asked the audience to pray that be might stand Urm to the end. Pbil Magulre, rui old man. who, Mr. Hartley said, was tho only nun living now who bad sorted In Sing Slnu- with Jerry MoAuley. told of tbe contention of McAuley and of his own conversion. Throe ilmus he bscksllded, he said, but Jerry Mi-Aulcy finally savod him. Tho meeting ended with singing and prayers. KANSAH'S ANTI-TRUST LAW. Attorney-General Snelllnir Has Discovered That It Is Belns Violated. TorEKA, Kan,, Nov. 21. Attorney-General Snelllng yosterday procured, in a purely occi dental way, direct ovldonco of a violation of tho Farroley Anti-Trust law by the Kansas Whole sale Grocers' Association. O. Z. Kelso of tho Parkhurst-Davis Wholosalo Company and T. J. Gordon of Kansas City, sell ing an Eastern brand of coffee, walked Into Mr, Snelllng's otllco to settle a dispute, Gordon asserted most positively that the Far reley law had becn declared unconstitutional.

Gordon immediately repllod that the Furreley law was a thing of the past, and tho argument which ensued brought about the visit to Iho Attorney General's office.

The Sanation Chaetle a ta rTxt Tear We Ilea fr Soveraer. TlABiusDcno, Nor. 31. Politicians here are all at soa regarding the contest ot 1808. 8o far a Gov. Hastings is concerned, he is maintaining a silence that I almost dense in Its Intensity. Attornoy-Gencral MiCormlck Is saying nothing, but thinking a great doal. Ho may peak be fore tho close of the month, but the probability Is that be will await further developments. Ho has promised to give out hi view later, but the Attorney-General Is a discreet as well ns a couragedus man, and be will bldo his time. Ho has some very interesting and entertaining views of tho situation In this State, a regarded from a political standpoint, if ho would but con sent to give them for publication. Speaking privately, be discloses his Idea of tho Repub lican dllomma In a very breozy and splrltod way. There is no doubt that tho Governor and hi Premier have a thorough understanding as to tho future, but neither ot this time Is ready to announce his plans. Both are probably await ing an opening, and when It comes thoy will have some things to say that will keep tho polltloal waters stirred for a fow days. Recently Mr. McUormlck has becn troubled with a throat ailment that has annoyed htm considerably, and he will give attention to this physical matter before becoming too deeply Involved in the polltloal strife that Is Impending. Gov. Hastings has looked carefully over the field and he thinks thore Is troublo nhoad for omobody. He knows that the somebody Is not himself. Ho realizes tho grip Senator Quay has on tho machino of tho Republican party, but ho also realizes how terribly aroused tho people ot Pennsylvania are and how ready thoy aro to Join In tho fray next year. Ho docs not mini mize tho force of tho Swallow movement this year. Ho knows that It means a protest which tho peoplo who aro pretending to manago tho party's affairs in this State must heed. It is a trango coincidence that whllo Swallow was anathematizing the Governor throughout tho campaign the Governor was overwhelmed with telegrams and letters the day after tho election congratulating him on tho indorsement of his course in disapproving tho wickedncBS ot tho Legislature as evidenced by tho big voto cast for Swallow. Peoplo reason peculiarly now and tnen. Secretary of tho Commonwealth Martin Is as reticent concerning tbo outlook and plans for next year ns tho Go ernor and Atlonioj-Gcn-oral. He says it Is too tar off lo discuss, but ho probably docs not expoct anybody to believe thut be and tho other leaders of tho party aro so Indifferent as to give no thought to tbe nom inations next year. He and others pretend that tho mattor will not be seriously taken up until alter tbe holidays, but tbo wayfaring man, though a fool, can see that tho nig and llttlo politicians all otor tho Stato are doing all that thoy can to carry through their individual schemts. Congressman William Council of Scranton perhaps understands by this tlmo thut he bas been building his political houso on tbe Band and that the waters ot the approaching storm will wash It away. It was the hope of tbe io.il region candldato that be would full heir to tho favor ot tho State ad ministration, but nobody hero thinks for a mo ment that tho Governor will help tho Scranton mau as against his Attorney-General, who, be side being a memberof his olflciul family, is also his persona and intimato friend and adviser. Gov. Hastings will do all that ho can to help McCormlck if the Attorney-General tdiould do clde to be a candidate, which Is doubtful. It Is believed that thu Governor nnd his Attorney-General have talked tbo matter over very carefully and that tbey bavo come to tho conclusion that the tlmo Is not proptlious for a member ot tbe butte administration to be nomi nated. Mr. McCormlck is not the man to go into a fight for tho muro satisfaction of being on thti ticket, win or lose. If bo enters tbo contest it will be only after ho has thoroughly canvassed tho situation and has persuadod himself that there Is n fair chance of election. He is not a moonbeam chaser and is not n purchaser of gold bricks. Congressman William A. Stones supporters frlve him credit for having a larger personul fol owing than most persons concede him. They say that he will draw largely from the soldiers of the Stato and thut his record on Immigration will be a big help to him in tho tight ford u- Satcs. His most serious drawback is tho well etlned opposition of C. L. Mugeo, the Pittsburg leader. Under no circumstances will he agree to tho nomination ot Stone, und thus handi capped in bis own county and having in addi tion tho lnaorsemout of Senator W. 11. Andre vs, who is pulling the strings behind tho Bconcs, it Is not hard to see tho end ot tbe Allegheny can didate's boom. As tor tbo other Stone Charles W. the Congressman from Warron, ho will have a big lead In the almost solid voto of tho northwest and tbo support of rmny interior counties. Ills splendid record in Congress and his previous unsullied service for the State in positions of honor will g vo him a tine start when the battlo opens In earnest. He is neither Quay nor antl Quaj , hut belongs to that body of Republicans wnicn believes that there can be a party without personality. Sonio hint havo fallen horo recently which Indicate a purpose on the part ot some leading party men of the State to unite upon tho Warren man in order to assure peaco next year. They bellat o that he would be iutinclblo In the face ot any indopondont movement. Tho Daronport men in Erie, who are the Andrews mon, will do all tbey can to take that county from Stone, but his friends Bay that their schemes a ill fail. The Wurren man was In Philadelphia on Fri day, and it Is known that he has had confer ences with some ot the party leaders In tbe east ern nnd tt estcrn ends of the Stato. as well as those In the Interior. Until now ho has not pressed a, vigorous canvass, but his friends are now going In to win. and they express tho great est confidence In the result. Hire Quay and anti-Quay men say that he Is tho most avallablo man in the fiold, but tho aggressive otitis aro for Attornoy-Genernl McCormlck and hope he tt ill consent to become a i andldate. V. A. B. WIdener Is not seriously regarded as a candldato here, where politicians are wont to gather from all parts of tho State. That is to sajr, his chances of success are not rtgurded seriously. Most parly men say his nomination would bo suicidal, and others think that certain alleged leaders aro backing him for the purpose of getting tbe necessary cash to run what prom ises to bo a vory expensive campaign. It re mains to bo soon whether WIdener w ill permit himself to bo bilked in this fashion by those w bo have played at this sort of thlug before. There is also being advanced here a theory that WId ener is to be used to disrupt still further the Quay forces In Philadelphia. Tho long and short of It all la that tho politi cians, big ana little, are groping blindly and hoping that something will occur to nhod a ray of light across tbe darkness of a very pcrploxlng situation. So far as the llttlo follows who crawl in the shadow of tbo bigger bosses aro con cerned, they ore in hot water. They don't know whether to cheer for Quay or against him. After the tlrst of the year there will be some lining up, and tbe more conservative party men aro of the opinion that the selections for tbo State ticket by tho Re. ubllcans should be carefully mado or defeat will surely follow. PUPILS SI AT EAT ONIONS NOW. Tbe Schoolteacher Objected, bnt Strategy Snroxeded, and She Surrendered. Topxka, Nov. 21. Topeka's onion war Is over, and the onion has won. It began when Miss Elmlra McCoy, a teacher In tbe Clay street school sent throe onlon-enting pupils home to have their breaths fumigated, and announced that thoroaftor no pupil who ate onions would be permitted to remain in tho room. Miss Mo Coy wns upheld by Principal Prof. McCUntock, and for two days tbe odlct stood. Then tho pupils, under the leadership of an embryo genius who saw an opening for an extra vacation, took a hand. Yesterday morning when school was callod Miss McCoy's room smellcd like nn onion patch. One suspect was called up, convicted by his breath, and sent homo, Not until half tho pupils had been sent away did tbo toacher ills cot er that tbey had formed a plot to cat onions dally until tho surrendered.

Positively That It Patron loloLead the District Hereafter la stead of O'Connor It Is Said That the Conn elltnan and Aldernan, Blert Are with Ulm. Patrick Dlvvcr Is eW to have wrested the Tammany leadership of the Second Assembly district awny from Francis J. O'Connor, th compromise leader chosen by Tammany's Ex ecutive Committee last spring. Dlvver 1 the bOBs of the district how. It Is said, and will be recognized as such in the distribution ot patronago and in tho control ot the polit ical affairs of tho district. It was stated at the Dlvvcr Club that at a meeting ot the Tammany Executive Committee on Friday it wns decided tb rocognlzo Justtco Dlvver as the leader, although Mr. O'Connor was named to dlstribnto tho Second Assembly district share of tho $20,000 given to the city poor by tho committee. Ill duties as leader, 11 is said, will ccano there, nnd Dlvvcr will do tho dis tributing of patronage. There wa also a report that Councilman Thomas F. Foloy and Alderman Jeremiah Cronln, who got their nominations from tho O'Connor-Brown faction, had assured Justice Dlvvcr of their fealty to him, and had cut away from Leader O'Connor. Neither Mr. Foley nor Mr. Cronln was to bo found lait night. Although Mr, Foley Is elected Councilman from tho First Council district, his residence accord ing to tho directory Is 212 Wost 130th streot. Leader O'Connor ha trained with Alderman Nicholas T. Brown slnco he was mado the com promise leader. Tho Tammany organization headquarters in tho district Is the Mohawk Club, at Park row and Pearl streot, but as this Is used as tho din ing room of a Ralnos law hotel on Sundays, tho members usually meet on the stdowalk at Park row nnd William street. Alderman Brown, when scon there last nlgbt. Bald ho knew nothing about tho reportB and rc forod inquirers to Leader O'Connor. A crowd of Second district politicians were discussing tho neWB on tho cornor. Mr. O'Connor Bald tho reports were iiows to him. Ho certainly had not received any official notification that he had been deposed as leader. Ha had not seen Messrs. Foloy or Cronln and could not say whether they had deserted or not. "I was namod as louder to distrlbuto the money donated for charity by tho Tammany Executive Committee at Friday's mooting, and that certainly does not look as If I bail becn deposed," he said. "I don't think anything would bo done just now by tho Executive Com mittee but should think It would wait until tho matter Is settled at tho primaries un Doc. 28 next. Why, wo havo not oven received no tico that thore w ould be a contest, as is the cus tom, but, of course, wo expected one." Tho Tammany Executive Committee Is not bound by any rules In determining what shall bo dono for tho bost Interests of the organiza tion. Secretory McCarthy of tho Genoral Com mittee of the district said: "1 don't think there 1 anything In the re port. If thore is It will bo the first time n suc cessful district leader ha been turned down by tho Tammany organization. Thut is not tlio poller ef the organization. This is the banner district in tho city, and we have made it so. Wo hat o kept the organization together slnco 181)3, whon Dlvvcr stepped out and Aldor ninn Brown was mado louder. We boat tho Dlvver men at tho primaries last year and wo will do It again this year, so that I don't think Mr. O'Connor will be deposed." At tho Dlvver Club, 59 Madison streot, a man who Is very closo to Justice Dlvver said: "It is a positive fact that Judge Dlvvcr was settled upon as tha leader in tho Second Assem bly district at Friday's meeting of tho Execu tive Committee. It all came about because O'Connor, tbo compromiso leader, did not play fair. When Tammany's Executive Committee decided to namo a compromise leader for the district last spring and O'Connor, who was then treasurer of our club, was selected, wo felt that we would bo treated fairly and could not mako any complaint, Slnco be was appointed, however, he has been with Brown. Why, in the last campaign O'Connor would not even glvo us on election district Inspector, and wo could not give a poor fellow a chance to mako the prleo of an overcoat. Despite this wo got our men together and had representa tives in every district supplied with the sinews of war to support tho ticket. Wo made this the banner district of tho city, and now Brown and O'Connor have only a handful ot followers here." Tho Dlvver men ay that thoy will beat the O'Connor-Brown men out of their boots at tho primaries this year, because Mike Callahan, who aupportod Brow n last year at the primaries and w us turned down, will now support them. Ex-Police Justtco Dlvrer has always been friendly with Richard Croker, and they have been "chummier" than ever slnco election. TITO REPU11LICAN CONTESTS. Bareus and Bzayor Lead an Opposition te Leaders Crubcr and Mcltee. There will be two interesting contests at tho Republican primaries to be held on the night of Tuesday, Deo. 11. Thoy will be in the Twenty first and the Twonty-thlrd Assembly districts. The fighting will be wholly within organization lines und tho contestants will abide by tbe result. The fight In the Twenty-first Assembly dis trict will bo led by James S. Barous. tho pub lisher, against tbe leadership of Abraham Gruber. Mr. Bareus was a candidate for tho Republican nomination for Councilman In tbe Fourth district. Ho lays his failure to get the nomination to tbe door of Mr. Gruber. It was the first venture Mr. Bareus had made In politics. He confesses that ho rather likes Iho game, and although his first political ambition was crushed, be purposes trying again. He had a conference on Saturday with a lot of Republican workers of tbo district at bis otllco in tho Constable building at Fifth avenue and Eighteenth street, nnd asked their aid in theflght against Loader Gruber. He has Issued invitations to the same men and to others to dine with him this evening at the Uptown Association in the Constable building, when bis plans of campaign will bo developed. Mr. Bareus admitted yesterday that he was after Leader Gruber'e scalp, nnd suld that he is abovo all else a good Republican, and will make bis fight wnolly within tho Hues of the party. He added thut he believes he and his friends will be able to olcot tbe delegation to tho now County Committee In tho Twenty-third Assembly district Julius M. Mayor is in charge of the forces opposed to Loader M, M. McKeo. Ro is assisted by Alder man Collin IL Woodward and Herman B. Wil son. This combination waa suc-cossful in tho nominating primaries and conventions and de clares that It will have no difficulty in electing delegates of its own choice to tbe now County Committee. ERTAN MEN TO STICK. Benrr Osorae's Supporters Tallin- Stops for a Permanent Organisation. It has been practically decided to continue as a permanent organization the Democracy of Thomas Jefferson, whose candidate for Mayor in tbe last election was Henry George. Tbe members of the Campaign Committee met last week and resolved to leavo tbe whole matter of a permanent organization In tho bands of a conference to be composed of mon se lected from tho several Assembly districts of this city, tho boroughs of Richmond and Queons, and tho wards of Brooklyn. Before tho election tho party hnd district lend ers in all tbo Assembly districts of this city, and In tbe several Brooklyn wards, Thcso leaders aro to bo requested to call their organizations together and choose threo dehgutcs from each district or ward to attend the conference which will bo held in this city on or iibmit Doc. 3. L. Lawson Purdy ot tbo Campaign Committee will send out tho nutlcos lor tbo cnmcrcnco. Thu George Cuuipulgu Committee will turn overall Its political assets to the conference, which will. It is said, undoubtedly dcclno on a plan lor per manent organization, as these llrynn Democrats say that tbey are gulng to send uclegatos lo tbo Demcicrntlo National Convention In 1000 and demand recognition us tbo only ngular Demo cratic organization from this state. They buy, too, that they will get it, us the Hrjiui men know that they will havo to gol along without tho electoral voto of Now York Stale. It It this hope of recognition in the notional convention bi'Hliles a desire toiuuko an oiganlzod effort to elect ltryali t'oiigrchuutun from this city next year which is actuating iho leidors of tlio De mocracy ot Thomas Jefferson In this mot oincnt.

It was bald ester day on behalf of the Republican leaders that nothing can be dono In this matter tery well Just now.

Order ta Show Canso nhi Certain Ballot Boxes Shpuld Hot Be neoponed. It Is expected that tbe Kings county Board of Canvassers will finish their labors to-day. The board has an appropriation of 91,000 to be used in tabulating tho vote, and the friends ot the Aldermen who are employed as tabulators are anxious to get as much ot this as possible. The tabulators are paid by tho day, and that may account for the delay in tho canvass of the vote In Brooklyn, Nelson B. Klllmer, the Cits' candidate for As sembly in the First district of Kings county, has secured from Justice Maddox of the Su- Ercme Court four orders to show cause why the allot boxes in tho First district of the Sixth ward, tbe Ninth district of the First ward, nnd in the Seventh and Tenth districts of the Third ward, should not bo nnsealed and tho ballot recounted.
