Mack's friends claimed eight and possibly thirteen delegates out of the twonty-slx from Albany county. The Hon. Win. Barnes. Jr., executive Chairman of the Repub lican State Committee, expected to be In Albany "yesterday, but the Illness of Mrs. Uarne Who is with Mr. Barnes In New York city, de tained him hare. Concerning the statement of I 'Gov. Blaok'sfrlonds regarding theAlbany dele gation Mr. Barnes issued this statement: "If the estimates of (lov. Black's managers kre made up from the same sort of Informa tion as that on which the Albany county Mtlmate is based, their figures will have to lie considerably revised. Last June the dele kstes from Albany county to the state Con vention met and discussed tit length the po litical conditions which existed at that time fcnd which might exist In the tall, and It was unanimously agreed bv the delegates, with the exception of Superintendent Kaston, that they would stand together upon all matters which knight come before the convention, and that, Where t hero was a differeucn of opinion among them, the wish of the majority would prevail, Therefore, the claim made by Hie (lovernor's knanagers that a certain number of votes In theAlbany delegation will be east for him In the coming State Con volition Is a mistake. The Governor will receive the vote of the en tire delegation from the county of Albany. If a majority of that delegation favors him. It it does not, he will receive the vote of Mr. Easton and no other, unless pledges voluntarily made by dele gates la.-t June are violated. From what I hear from Albany. lam Inclined to think that there is hut one man in t..e delegation who be lieves in the expedient! of the Governor's re nominutlon. So imi.-t. for the claim that the Jtovemor has from tight to thirteen of the Al lianv delegates. Senator John Raines, Senator Goggeahall, Representative Sherman, Division Superin tendent of Canals Thomas Wheeler, and Supreme Court Justice Horlpturo were ainotii: Senator Piatt's callers yesterday. The Inner four told of the Republican situ ation in Oneida county. In the tabulated tateineut printed In Tub Sun yester day from Gov. Black's friends it was announced that nine votes from Oneida would go to Black. The information given by the Oneida delega tion in New York city yesterday was that of the iwentv-two votes to which Oneida was en tilled in th First. Second and Third districts, twelve would bo for Roosevelt and teu for Black. Tnc critics who dissected the statement of Gov. Black's friends in The Hun yesterday culled attention to the fact that the Governor's friends claimed twenty votes from Chautauq.ua, when In fact the county is entitled to only slx ' teen votes in the convention. Furthermore, It was pointed out. Gov. Blade's friends claim the thirteen delegates from Ulster count . It wus said that this claim had some thing to do with the proposed nomination of AlnhonsoT. Clearwater of Kingston for Hu- 5 re me Court Justice. Gov. Black appointed Mr. loarwater to the vacancy In the Thfid Judlola! Istrict on the Supreme Court bench caused by the elevation of Alton B. Purker. ulsu of Kings ton, to be Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals. -Justice Clearwater is a candidate for renomlna tinn. and the Judicial Convention, which . In to make the choice of a candidate, will not be held until after the Be- Jiubllcan State Convention. The Third uiiicinl district is made up of the counties of Bchohnrle. Albany, Rensselaer, Greene. Coluin I Ma. Sullivan, and Ulster. If Justice Clearwater 'does not see to It that the thirteen delegates .irom Ulster are delivered for Black, the friends of (iov. Black. It was said, will seeto to that he Isde- touted for a nomination for Justice. The anti-Black people. In going over tills nutter, said that Gov. Black's friends would only control the following delegates to the Judiciary Convention: Rensselaer .'I, . Columbia, Greene and Schoharie each . 1 : total, il. The anti-Black people, on the contrary, it wus said, will control seven dele - sates In the Judiciary Convention of the Third district, as follows- Ulster. 2; Albany. 4. and Sullivan. It which assures the nomination of Justioe Clearwater. The Republicans who talked with Senator rlatt yesterday mild they were convinced that fee favored the nomination of Col. Theodore lloosevelt for Governor, and that at the proper time he would so declare him self; Some of the Republicans said they ery much wished that Senator Piatt Vould speak up pretty soon, and the anti Black Republicans here and in Brooklyn con tinued to assert that Col. Roosevelt would be nominated in the convention by acclamation. Some of the Republicans in town yes terday who talked with Senator Piatt went . ' on to say that white the delegates from pertain counties up the State are now for Gov. Black, the sentiment of their constituents is 2tI!.,-?r Booseyelt. One Republican said hat he did not believe Gov. Black would get twenty-five delegates iu Kings county or mora than twenty delegates la the borough of Mau- They added that the claims of Gov. Black's friends as to his strength in the upper counties W the State were pure bluff. This will all MM out. however, at the State Convention. The feeling Is Just, about, . bitter as it pan be. It waa added, aud some Repub Roans who are, Jotttf friends of Senator Piatt and Gov. Black did not Tiestltate to say that if at the last moment Gov. Black's friends on a count of noses ascertained that It was all tap with the Governor, the light would not be allowed to go into the convention.

The resolution wus presented by Mr. March, Who said that ho reullKed after close observa tion that there was a general spirit In bis dis trict in favor of Mr Koosevelt. and that a great many Democrats would vote for Roose velt if he were nominated He also stated that Boosevelt wus the highest type of American eltlzeiisliip. and that tin- Republican party al ways honored men who had become distin guished for vs)or uud iuiugruy. The resolu tion was seconded, by Alfred K. din men. who stated that Roosevelt demonstrated the possibilities of the American youth. tnergetic, forcible, ready for uny duly, and, alien.- nil. loi everything that would iiici-i'iise und develop the country ho ieaeryed well ut the bunds of his countrymen.

The selection of such n Legislature will depend very largely upon the wise selec tion of a nominee for Governor: '' Heaotrrd, That while this club Indorses the administration of (lov Frank S.

L Sandtord. one of the delegates to the State Convontiou. seconded Ihe resolutions, and said he hoped they would be unanimously adopted. Col. Dady said that he did not care to discuss the merits of thv. Black or " that brave gentleman who led the gallant troops Iu the now famous charge up the Santiago hills." He said he did not desire to get the local party in any trouble, hut that at the proper line public sentiment wouid have a good deal to do with settling the uucstlou. The vote was unanimous for the resolutions. After the meeting Mr. Saudford said: "This Is a year when the Republican party must win. I am a delegate to the convention that will nominate the man that will be elected That man, iu my estimation. Is Col. Theodore Roosevelt. The people want him nominated and the people of my ward want him. and as that Is the sentiment I will vote for him. In one of the papers I saw they hud my name down In the Black column. That is wrong. I am heartily in favor of and will vote for Roose velt's nomination." The 1X2 delegates to the Slate Convention from Kings county will have u utce'ing in the Johnston building cither on Thursday or on Friday night, when the question of the can didacy of Gov. Black and Col. Roosevelt will be discussed. One of the leaders of the delega tion said last night that he was positive that the sentiment was so strong for Col. Roosevelt that the delegation from Kings county would be almost unanimous for his nomination. "The meeting of the delegates this week will decide the matter." he said, "and you will find that what I have said is gospel truth. At the present time the delegation from the First. Assembly district, for Instance, which has been put down as being solid for Black, is in reality at this time even up. That is. three are for Blackand three for Roosevelt. After the meet ing of the delegation It will be almost unani mous for Roosevelt." black coyxisvea the fight. Oets Pledges of Votes from Congressmen Hooker and Ward Other Aid Promised. AliiKt, N. Y..

Abont 400,000 la All Kniolled In the Hehaols of the ' Greater City Hnperlntenrtent Jasper Pleased with Ihe Result Be Hopes to Provide Moan for All Who Apply The public schools of the city opened for the fall term yesterday, and there was the regular annual football rush on the part of the parents of children of school age who live on the east side to get their offspring on the rolls before the schools were filled up. At some of the schools in the territory south of Houston street and east of the Bowery the rash was terrific, and the servlcea of the police were needed in several Instances to preserve order. There were no serious accidents, however, and before the day was over most of the schools were running without friction or confusion. As usual, so ne children were turned away for the lack of room, but the number was not ns gre.it as In former years, and the school au thorities hope to nrovide seats for all In the near future by Introducing the Copenhagen system in the crowded districts. The exact number of children who were turned nway In Manhattan and the Bronx is not known, nor will it be known until to-day. when Superin tendent Jasper gets reports from the princi pals of all the schools. It was roughlv esti mated, however, that between 18,000 and 20,- 000 children were temporarily barred from attendance, and there will be no accommoda tions for them until the Copenhagen system is put iu operation. It was Ihe intention or the school authorities to open four new schools yesterday, but at the lost moment it wus discovered that two of them were not quite ready for occupancy. The new schools opened were No. 20, at Rlv Ington. Forsyth and Eldrldge streets, with a seating capacity of 2,100. and No. 0.1. ut 173d street and Fulton avenue, which will accom modate 1.485 pupils. The total number of pupils who entered the schools of "Greater New York" was estimated at :W5,000, of which Manhattan and the Bronx had 22.".O00, Brook lyn 140.000. Oueens 20,000 and Richmond 10. 000. No accurate figures bearing on the sub ject could be ob'iiined last night, but several officers of the school system were positive that the number of pupils registered in all the schools would not exeed 400.000. The num ber of teachers on duty iu Manhattan and the Bronx Is 5.200, and 400 more will be appoint ed as soon as the necessary requirements can be fulfilled. Superintendent Jasper seemed to be well satisfied with the manner In which tho school year started In Now York county. "There has been some overcrowding to-dav." he said, "but that was expected. There has been overcrowding for about four years, and It woud be strange if there were none now. The inuch-talked-of Copenhagen system is not a new thing in this city, and there is no particu lar reason why it should be more referred to now than last year. "it used to be in the primary schools that there were class sessions lasting for two hours. According lo (lie plan made neces sary', wherever there is not room to accommo date ull the pupils at one time, the sessions will be continuous for four hours. It ull amounts to a hulf-day school a thing by no ineaus new here "The crowding, as might be expected. Is conilned largely to the lower und of the city, and particularly to the east side. There is some crowding too, in the upper part of the city that Is. above the Bronx River, but It Is not bad there. The schools are crowded only where the population Is very dense or where the growth lias been rapid. "Among the schools where there was crowd ing this morning were No 7, at mi Chrystie street; No. 20, at It Hi Chrystie street: No. 42. at 30 Allen street : No. 75. ut 25 Norfolk street, and No. 137. at Grand and Ludlow streets. "These schools are In the Tenth ward, and here was never any doubt that they would be crowded. The number of children in the neighborhood Is enormous and the school faculties will have to be very greatly Increased before all the children can find room. The number of children who come of school age every year extends far into the thousands, and the number increases so rapidly that a new school could be filled every year. "The schools mentioned aro all downtown on the east side, but there Is crowding above the thickly populated district, too. One of the uptown schools which cannot scat at one time all the children applying for admission is No. 0. at Eighty-fifth street and Madison avenue. Others are No. 37, at 113 East Eighty-seventh street; No. SO. at Lexington avenue and Ninety-sixth ureet; No. 83, on East lltlth street; No. 72, on Lexington avenue nearlOStb street: No. 85. on East 138th street; No. 00. at College avenue and 145th street, and No. UO, at Eagle avenue and 103d street. "Some of these, you can see. are pretty far uptown. The growth of the city has been very rapid in that direction, and the children find Jew schools waiting for them. There will be more before a great while, and within a year there ought to be room for ull. "On the west side of the city there Is some crowding, but it Is confined to about a half dozen schools. The ones where there Is not enough room are No. 0, at Eighty-second street and west End avenue; No. 3, on Hudson street: No. 1(1, ut St. Nicholas avenue and 1 17th street : No. 5, at Edgecombe avenue and 141st street; No. 80. at Lenox avenue and 134th street, and No. (18, on West 128th street. "In some of the schools mentioned there Is bad crowding: lu others It Is not so great. Rut everywhere we are doing the best we can. Every year there are about Io.OIXi more stu dents than there were the year before, and It Is this Increase which has caused the trouble. To accommodate the Increase about lire new schools are needed every year, atid when Sep tember comes and finds no new schools, crowding begins which lasts for years. "There are four new schools opening to-day. and thtre are many more buildings nearlug completion. Six months ought to see oiiouku of them ready for occupancy to relieve the crowding almost entirely, and two months later there should be room for every pupil In the city. There is no way of telling just how many children went to school to-day or the exact number of those turned away, but the figures will be in to-morrow. I have asked all the principals to meet at my office and bring fig ures with them which will tell all that Is want ed. When the figures are compiled and all "sv questions answered I can tell exactly how many children are In the schools una how many are out who should be In." There was an exhibition of the work of the scholars of the vacation schools, which closed lost month, on the fourth floor of the Hall of Education yesterday. The walls were covered with hundreds of drawings made by these pu pils und many of them were genuinely clever. Some of the drawings were from nature and others from life. There were ulso not a few fancy plcturea In the exhibition. The subjects were those which generally appeal strongly to children. 10,000 intooKi.rs rvpus kept out. Two New Sehoole to Be Opened In Novem ber Will Accommodate 3,000 of Them. The public schools of Brooklyn were reopened after the summer vacation yesterday. Associ ate Superintendent Wurd estimated that about 140.000 pupils had returned lo their studies. He said that there would he about 10,000 chil dren for whom there was no room in the schools. Some of the schools aro run on the half-day system, which had been successfully carried out In former years. By this means a much larger number of children are able to at tend. Two new schools, one located at Knick erbocker avenue and Ralph street and the other at Fourth avenue and Fifty-ninth street, will be opened In November. These two schools will accommodate about 3,000 children, i Mew High Schools In Blchnioud. The public schools of Richmond borough opened yesterday with 10,000 children regls Istered in the twenty-nine different schools. Since the advent of the new school adminis tration three high schools have been estab lished in the borough, and these were opened for the first time yesterday afternoon. They are altuated at Port Richmond. Stapletou and Totteuvllle. In the Port Richmond school there were 110 pupils, at Stapletou there were thirty-one and at Tottenvlite tlilrty-ulne Thirteen more teachers are needed lu the several schools, and until these are obtained it will be necessary to cut down the hours In some of the primary classes to a halt day, so that one teacher can lust met two classes In one day.

Tbs store had been locked up for ihe night when a passer-by saw smoke, permeated with variegated scents, that soon filled the street, pouring though the cellar gratings. He told a policeman, who rang an alarm. Among the first firemen on hand was Chief John Castles of the Second Battalion. The cellar door was smashed open, and Castles descended with his men. They went on hands and knees. Castles was prostrated and dragged to the sidewalk. The other men were forced out Into the open air later, many of them knocked out. A second and third alarm brought nearly a dozen en gines, with tenders and hook and ladder com panies. An ambulance and two surgeons from Hud son Street Hospital were toon on haud to help restore the smoke-choked fireman. The men worked In relays, none of which stayed more than Ave or ten minutes in the cellar. The fire was Invisible, as It was away down In tho bottom of the sub-cellar, twenty feet lie low thesldewslk. Several lines of hose were run Into the cellar, and torrents of water wore also directed toward the source of the stifling smoke through holes cut In the wall or the building en the west of 54. Before the third alarm was rung the firemen thought they had the fire subdued. A blinding volume of smoke that momentarily hid the front of the building caused Chief llonner to call for more engines. At that time there wore lying on blan kets on the sidewalks of Beekman and adjoining streets fourteen men. Some were able to return to dutv later. A few were com pletely Incapacitated for the time. The sur geons from Hudson Street, however, decided that none needed hospital treatment. This is a list of the overcome: James Martin, foreman. Engine .11 : Charles Clifford, foreman. Engine 6; William Andrews, assistant foreman. Engine tl; James Clark. Engine 81: Herman Kuch. Engine 12: Louis Sf taTine l'J; Paul Salton. Engine 12; f Philip Welmer.

Policeman lloddy caught one of the horses by the bridle and held on a few blocks. He was forced to let go to escape a lamppost. 1 lie wheels of the tender slammed against the curbstone. The horses were caught, half ex hausted, at Exchange place and Beaver street by a policeman. At 9:30 o'clock the fire was apparently under control, and the engines culled on the third alarm were sent home. About an hour later, there was another volcanic upheaval from the depths of the sub-cellar. The scent of bergamot, lemon uud other essential oils, mixed with peppermint aud the odor of burning pomade, filled the air for many blocks around. It was like the Interior of a Third avenue barber shop without u vacant chair. In the third, also the last, out break of smoke three firemen who had been once before overcome and had returned to duty, were prostrated. They were Kuch. Sutton and Price. Chief llonner announced confidently shortly after midnight that the Are had been at last drowned out. Then he went home. The proprietor of the store said he could form no estimate of the damage. Itprobubly will not exceed (20.000. One of the firemen brought a cat. out of the cellar. Efforts to revive it were unavailing aud It was killed. 11 FOLICEUES TO SVBDVE WHITE.

The Building and Sites Committee of the Central Board of Education continued last night the investigation of the charges preferred some time ago against Superintendent Sidney J. Snyder by John W. Franklin, a former in spector In the same department. Franklin had declared that Snyder had used a lathe bought for schoolhousea In the erection of his own home. This was disproved at a previous hearing. He also charged that the brickwork of several schoolhousea waa de fective. Thla was also disproved. Then it waa alleged that Contractor Patrick Gallagher had changed the plans In some of the buildings without consulting Snyder, always to the detri ment of the buildings. This was practically admitted by Snyder, but his counsel made the claim that while he was technically responsible, for the acts ut the Inspectors under him he could not be expected to personally examine every bit of every new building. At the opening of yesterday's session Mr. Rose, Gallaghers attorney, volunteered to bring his client to the next hearing and put him on the stand to answer the attacks made on him. Cliuli-iiiuii Muck said that he did not think Gallagher had any standing in the Inves tigation, us lioth Snyder and Franklin hudud uilttcd that Gallagher's work was faulty. "And what is more," said Chairman Muck, " as soon as this present Investigation is closed we will Investigate Gallagher und he will have all the chance ho wunls to defend himself." "As Franklin's counsel I ask that Gallagher be subpoenaed for the next hearing." said Frank Moss. Chairman Muck then yielded the point and Snyder took the stand In his own be half. The hearing was adjourned until next Monduy evening. ASTOB'UBPBB HYSUICATE. A Conference to Decide Whether to Carry Uut Its Plans la Honduras. New Oklkans, Sept. 12. Col. D. B.
