WkW Durinj the entire conferenco so far the Rjj theories which havo been advanced, with few B-W exceptions, declared the populur vote plan na Bfyi. tho panacea for tho alleged evil of bo'slsm. While numberless methods hae been sug- B rested they differed only in small particulars, K but no paper had been read reviewing the prac- jP Ucal workings of the popular voto tvstcm until J$ yesterday afternoon, when ono was presented MW Tom L. Johnson. As Mr. Johnson declared Be tho popular vote plan an utter failure and a Kn menace to public welfare, he was not applauded. Bl After hnvlng anoounccd that tho Crawford BM: county plan of primaries for the selection of Kw, candidates by a direct vote had been in ogue Bp tn somo counties of Ohio for fifteen )ears and tS for eight years In Cuyahoga county, in which PE Cleveland is located, the paper said: gjj "During tho cixht years ihis system has been 5m In vogue in Cleveland it has proved to be posi- HPo tlvcly harmful to party success nt the election H5t following the primaries, since the contest for Hs tbe Domination?, revere and bitter as it often Mf Is, leaves the party weak und disorganized. " From onr cxpericneo it would seem that tho ?? ordinary indlvidunl has little fltncis to judgo Km the ablliiy or a cand.date for olllce. or. having Bm the ability, he has little inclination to use it. j In the practical workings of the system tbe Kvf nomination eccker. who can make tho most Ha noisy canvasa, who has tbe largest amount of B-Sr Space for iilu.urcs of himself and wonderfui stories of bis great Hvc of tho common people, BVP, Inherited from obscure ancestors und acquired Kj!1 In the most humble ways of life.

It mjlj Is n consummation devoutly wished Iiy a can- i K; didate that he be talker, about; l...t people "S know his name, it scming to be of Muall ini K port&nce whether the speech concerning him ; iS be favorable or otherwise. K;, "In a county having a population of 450,000 b few persons are known to even n small percent - ffi age of the population, and It seems that almost . auy sort of publieit) gi en a mn is sullicient H'f-t' to turn a large number toward him when he h becomes a jidldate fur office.

The hope that the gu pmn of appeillng to the people direct would !3. call forth a better class of candidates has been fit abandoned, since under tbi the crop of cnndl- K, dates is considerably larger than under tho s convention plan, and is of surprising weakness sj? and great inability.

Patterson made lovo to Miss Thomas and prevailed upon her to marry nim. The day was set for the wedding, but Patterson was sad- j denly called to Montrose, where he said ho had large prope'r'T inerrst. Miss Thomas heard nothing from blm until several months later. She received a letter In which he told of loss of property and offered for her own sake to release her from the en gagement. Miss Thomas sent blm a telegram I ur-Ir.g bim to come on at once and make h.r hi" ' wife.

John Iteedy, Postmaster, station agent, tele graph operator nnd school tax gatherer of Po cantlco IIIUs, who was arrested on complaint of Anthony Comstock on Thursday for aiding swindling operations as told In Tub Son yes terday, was arraigned before United States Commissioner Shiolils yesterday and held In $2,300 ball for examination on Jan. 28. Ball was furnished by Michael Foley, owner of the Pocantleo Houso and of several buildings In Yonkcrs. Besides tbe criminal charge against Beedy, his conduct will be investigated by Chief Post Olllco Inspector Ashe. Post Oflico Inspectors Anthony Comstock and John D. King hare been working on tho case kinco last June Tho operations of tbe irreen goods gang, as they liavc unearthed them, aro I about as follows: First, a circular Is sent out as ' a feeler, which is to be answered by a telegram 1 to A. II. Cruni, Pocantleo Hills, containing an J address. Tho name in this address probably I refers to a volume of names and addresses, and ' the number designates ono particular name and address in it. The name and address are those of tho supposed sender of the telegram, and If there is no discrepancy a "sample of the goods" is sent to him with three circulars giving ex illicit directions for the actions of the prospec tive purchaser, a prico list nnd a hotel card. Tho "sample" is, of course, a brand new, genu- lne bill of small denomination, which is gener , ally wrapped in oil silk with tho explanation that it is frcshtfrcni the pre s and may rub off a little ink, and ruro enough there is a littlo green smudge on tho oil silk. When tho pros pective puivhiscr decides to Invest ho tele graphs 'o . Garcia, some number, Pocantleo Hill!, and mentions in tome ve'led way the amount pie intends to invest. In reply the dupe is instructed to write to Henry P. Hamil ton, lot) Klgblh avenue. New York, it anything is not understood or further information is de- I sired. Then a meeting is appointed at which i the green goods arc to be sold. Three private mall boxes in a cigar store havo been hired In the nainu of Hamilton, and tho proptietor of tho placo has been supplied with eddrctsol envelopes and Instructed to forward I ell mall trutn those boxes to William Murray, COO Ninth avenue. As soon as an inspector or any Government agent has tver located such a place all the rantl in It baa nearly always been abandoned aud the address discontinued. 1 bis ' has beon the case with these two places of re ceipt. The unusual circumstance in this case is the fact that thu letters and telegrams ad 1 dressed to Pocantleo Hills did not stop after 1 their receipt thcro was discovered. Comstock I said rest rday: I 'The story told by needy is wrong In some I particulars. In tho first place, 1 never saw Iteedy in his office before Dee. 0 last, but I did sec a letter of instructlnns written to him by Superintendent Humsted of the telegraph company to the effe-t that telegrams to Cruru and Garcia must not bo delivered unless these persons were fully and positively identified. They continued to be delivered, nevertheless, until my visit in December, after w-Llch lleedv's instructions were not to deliver or forward the telegrams at all. Ho was eager to show us the accumulation ol undelivered telegrams yesterday, but the suttance of their contents had continued to reach the right rnrtles, fir among them waa the very telegram that mado tho engagement for the meeting at which Gcorje Murris had already been arrested on Tlurduy morn n r at Port Chester. "On our visit on Dec. 6' Iteedy denied ever raving received any registered letters from any of the gang. On nir return to the cttj in I the afternoon wo found In tho box at lt( Eighth avenue a receipt for a registered letter sent by William Murray to Reedy on Dec. 4. which wo took hock to Heedy the next day t He had made no record in the proper Pot 1 Office volume of the ri-celpt of this letter, bit on looking over tho re ords of his predecessor I in oflico we found ho had received registered letters from Murray about the first of ever ; month since and Including last August. When confronted with this evidence. Reedy said be ' had received communications about green goods from Murray, but ho would say no more. f course. I don't krow in tbe present ca , but I do know that va-iou Postmasters have I accepted regular comtonsaf on of from 330 to S12S a month for allowing green goods men to . use their oflicej. During Iteedy's former term 3 Postmaster his removal was recommended by the inspectors. There are five other sus pects, and we hope to ert them in time. The gang has got a new address in Pennsylvania now, bnt we shall keep at them. They are using some of the same aliases as the old Me Nally gang, broken up about three years ago, and their methods nre like those of the Byan and Parmelee-Jones gangs."

Women suffering from any form of femalo weakness are Invited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Flnkham at Lynn, Mass. All letters aro received, opened, read and answered by women only. A woman can freely talk of her privato Illness to a woman; thus has been established the eternal confidence between Mrs. 1'lnkham and the women of America which has never been broken. Out of th vaat volume of experience which sho has to draw from, It Is more than pos sible that sho has gained tho very knowledgo that will help your case. Sho asks nothing In return except your good-will, and her advice has relieved thousands.
