In the tabulated statement printed in Tiir

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.

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

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,

contrary, it wus said, will control seven dele
- sates In the Judiciary Convention of the Third
district, as follows- Ulster. 2; Albany. 4. and

Justioe Clearwater.
The Republicans who talked with Senator

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.

The Republican Union Club, the leading po

night, with John Hartman presiding. The
club has among Its members the leading dele
gates to the Ward Committee and also four of
the lx delegates to Ihe Republican State Con

Kings county. Col. Michael J. Dady. one of the
delegates to the State Convention and Chair
man of the Executive Committee of the Repub

McKenna. a war veteran. Introduced this reso
lution: " M'ierea, The approaching election In this

party of Kings county and the entire State of
New Y'ork.
" Jttiolritl. That we. as members of the Re

" Hrtotred, That we reiiuest tho delegates to
the state Com cut ion from the First Assemblv
district to vote for Col. Roosevelt's nomination.
W. 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

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

The public schools of Brooklyn were reopened

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,

The public schools of Richmond borough

Since the advent of the new school adminis

for the first time yesterday afternoon. They
are altuated at Port Richmond. Stapletou and

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.

Air of Adjelaiag Streets with Mixed
Odors fire Horses Ran Away Cat Killed
Fourteen firemen were overcome In an ob
stinate recurrent Are that smouldered from
(1 :3( o'clock last evening until after ml duight
In the sub-cellar of the store at 54 Beekman
street, occupied by Leerburger Bros., dealers
In essential oils and perfumers' supplies.
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.

streets, and they tore away from tho hydrant,
smashing the connecting pipes of the engine
Their fright startled the horses of the tender
of Engine 20. and they started down Nassau
street. 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.
Broke Into Culm's House and Grabbed Him
by the Throat.
Max Cohn of 325 East Thirty-third street is
a heavy sleeper, so when his wife nudged him
in the ribs at 8 o'olock yesterday morning he
murmured "all right." and fell asleep again.
Then Mrs. Cohn poked him in the ribs again
and whispered, "burglars!" in his ear. Colin
awoke then and hearing some one stumbling
about the room called out to know who was
there.
The stumbling steps approached his bed and
a baud grasped his throat. He wrenched
away, but the hand seized him again and
yanked him out of the bed. The owner of the
hand and Cohn then began to struggle about
the floor. Mrs. Cohn ran Into the front room,
and. onenlng the window, shouted for help.
Policeman Waters responded, and lighting
the gas In the room where the men were
tusslltij, fell upon the Intruder. The lutter
surrendered.
Wheu they reached the sldewal1;. however
the prisoner turned suddenly on the police
man and knocked him down. Wheu Vuters
got up he nipped for assistance and tackled
the man again. The policeman was ugulu
sprawling on the sidewalk when two other
bluecoats urrived aud took a hand In the
fruy. They, too. went down aud in the mix
up the prisoner bit and kicked all hatuis.
Then two more policemen joined in and the
five tried to overpower the man. who con
tinued to fight with niiiniuciil fury and piled
one bluecoat upon another.
A call for assistance was sent to the East
lhlrty-flfth street stutlon and u patrol wagon
mid six policemen hastened to the battlefield
The eleven policemen formed a flying wedge
aud, rushing at the man. bore him to the
ground und held him there until bis hands
and feet were tied. He was then bundled
Into the patrol wagon and locked up. Later
he wus taken to the Vorkville Court, his hands
still secured. He said he was Peter White
of 25 Front street, und declared that a num
ber of men were trying to kidnap him.
Policeman Wuters said he thought the man
hud delirium tremens, so Magistrate Olmsted
committed him to the workhouse. When
taken downstairs White became violent again

Defence of 8. J. Snyder, Superintendent of
Construction of School Buildings.
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.
