Th complainant evn went no far aa to aay that th Bellevue authorities were sending In valided soldiers to th almshouse on Black -well' Island. Major Appal gar th com. plalnante a courteous bearing, and told them he would Investigate th matter at one. f t Late on Saturday afternoon th Major went np to Bellevu and visited ward tan and fifteen, th ' ones specifically man tioned by the complainants as contain ing, or aa having contained, soldiers who had bn. or were being. Ill treated. Major Appal la an old hand at investigating aueh charges, and he knew jut bow to go about It Therefore, a he entered each ward, he mad a little speech, which ran something like this: . " My men, most of yon have been hare a long ttm. and you're all probably tired of staying bar. You'd Ilk a change. Borne of yon, also, want to go home. To-morrow morning I'm coming up here to remove all who still need treatment to some other hospital. Those whom Ri doctors here aay are well enough to go m may come to mo on Monday morning and I'll give them furloughs. Now. I'm com ing around to each cot. ana If any of yon don't ' Ilk this arrangement I want you tell me so. and I'll aee what other arrangements I oan make." , . Then Major Appal talked with every soldier in each ward. Many, he found, wanted to go home, because they thought they were quite well enough to travel. Of tho others, every man of them said that, being soldiers, they would. of course, go wherever Major Appal sent them without comr-lalnlng. if, however. It wts all the same to him. and he could arrange It with out much trouble, they preferred to stay right In Bellevue until they were able to go on fur lough. They said everybody waa kind to them, andthey liked It. Major Appal told each man he'd see what he could do. and then went out to Investigate the bant that soldiers had been sent to Black well's Inland. Be found the charge was true to the extent of one soldier. He waa a member of the Eighth New York, and the surgeon In charge of the Metropolitan Hospital there was friend of his. The soldier asked the ward surgeon if he couldn't be sent to the Metro j pnlltan. where be could be under the care of " A his friend, and th request waa promptly Having sifted that charge. Major Appel went back to ward 10 and 15. In each he made an other little speech, the substance of wbloh waa: " WellTmen. I've had a talk with th hospital authorities her, and. after thinking over the matter a little, they told me that those wbo wanted to stay here oould do so aa long as they wished, or aa long aa they need treatment."

Ala. arrived bar from Montank Point late yesterday afternoon on tb United State transport Berlin. Th trans port tied np at th pier at tb foot of Lsroy street. Th mm of th regiments debarked and lounged around tb shed of tb Delaware Iaokawanna and Western Railroad until float beating baggag ear of tb Jerssy Central Railroad came alongside the transport Than they began transferring the luggage and equip ment of the commands to the oars. The work was going on at a 1st hour last evening, and the regiments will probably not leav Jersey City until early thfe morning. The Jersey Central connects with Annlston over the tracks of the Norfolk and Western. Thla morning the transport Roumanian Is due from Montank with the Eighth and Six teenth United States Infantry aboard, bound for Hnntsvllle. Ala These troops will be trans ported by the Pennsylvania road, and the Rou manian will proceed directly to tb railroad pier, foot of Bay street Jersey City. To-morrow the Third Cavalry will leave Montank to take station at Fort Ethan Allen. Essex Junction. Vt The transfer will be made by boat from Montank to New Imdon and from ther to destination by the Osntral Ver mont Railroad. Only a part of this regiment was stationed at Fort Ethan Allen btfors the war. Under the present order th entlr command will be as sembled there. The Twenty-fourth Infantry (colored) will also leave Montank to-morrow tor Fort Douglas. Utah. The Twenty-fourth Infantry. Is not the only colored regiment to be honored by the War Department for distinguished services before Santiago. Col. Amos Kimball, Deputy Quartermaster - General, stationed here, was Informed from Wash ington, late yesterday afternoon, that the Ninth Cavalry (colored), wbloh got mixed np In every engagement from Daiquiri to the Santiago Frenches, and fought be side the rough - riders at La Uuaalmaa, El Caney and San Juan, baa been Ordered to the Department of Colorado to relieve the Seventh Cavalry, stationed at Fort Grant Arts. The Seventh will be ordered to Huntsvl lie. The horses of the latter win be left at the post and the horses of the Ninth sent to Hnntsvllle. Col. Kimball was also Informed that the Sec ond Cavalry had been ordered from Montank Point to the Department of Dakota to relieve the Eighth Cavalry, stationed at Fort Meade. South Dakota. The Eighth will proceedto Huntsville. and the same arrangement as to horses will be made aa with the Seventh and Ninth. Ther Is special significance In these orders for the exchange of stations by these cavalry regiments. It throws into ths field two regiments that saw no active service during the war. and assures them of garrison duty in Cuba. It also settles the question of the place of rendezvous for the cavalry to be sent to Cuba, and thus the place of rendezvous for the major part of th forces to be sent to garrison th Island. Until yesterday the President had not defi nitely decided whether he would put any great number of troop In southern camp, pending th departure of the army of occupation for Havana. It had been decided to send more of the Infantry to Annlston. Ala. The order directing the Western cavalry to proceed to Huntsville fixes that place as the one when the cavalry will assemble. Annlston and Huntsville are not far apart so that when the order to move to Cuba comes the Infantry and cavalry can be moved practically together. The selection of Huntsville Is really a com pliment to Gen. Joseph Wheeler, who com mands the cavalry division of the Fifth Army Corps. The President asked him to recom- Send a place of encampment for the cavalry. e named Huntsville and Huntsville hss been selected. Gen. Wheeler will move his headquarters there and. being near home, he can oommand the cavalry and. at the sams time, give such attention to bis campaign for Congress as may be necessary. This will not take muoh time since Gen. Wheeler will have no opposition. THE SHIPS FOR THE PACIFIC. Capt. Terry About to Take Command of th Iowa Saa Francisco Kay So, Too. NoaroiJt. Vs.. Sept. 19.

The collier Sterling completed coaling this afternoon and cleared from the pier for Hamp ton Roads. The barge Seiota also cleared from Lambert's Point with a cargo of Pocahontas coal to-day. Bhe will coal the cruiser Ban Francisco in Hampton Roads. The belief la entertained that this cruiser may be also pre paring to sail with the others for the Pacific. STRICKEN ON THEIR WAT HOME.

Dennlson. who was Introduced as having risen from a sick bed for the occasion. He said no campaign had ever opened so gloriously for th flag, and that Roosevelt who had helped to add the new glory, was not only a soldier, but a statesman through and through. Th sneaker stopped In less than a minute, and was unable to go on on account of weakness. Jamea B. Lehmaier followed. The war, b said, bad been ably conducted, and that the country never had an abler or better President than McKinley. who, when the ship of state could not bo kept off the rocks of war, remained silent and un relenting until the conclusion brought honor to all. Theodore Roosevelt, he said, he had known for twenty years: they had ?at their maiden votes together for President Garfield, and he knew him to be as able in civil life as In battle. He then reviewed Roosevelt's political history, concluding: "He Is a man of rigid honesty. He will roske one of the best Gov ernors this State has ever known may ever know. Perhaps in the future this man. who Is to-day the beau ideal of the young Republicans In this State, may be naked to step higher to the Executive chair of our great country." Frank L. Warner, who served as a midship man on the Yankee, made n short address In praise of Col. Roosevelt's war record, and then a vote waa taken on the ratification of the In dorsement resolutions.

O OLD MEN XOT WASTED, An Attempt to Keep Them Cat of th Con necticut Democratic Convention. Nxw Havbn, Conn.. Sept 19. Alexander Troup, Chairman of tbe Democratic State Cen tral Committee and silver leader of Connecti cut clearly indicated In an interview to-day what the plan of the ultra silver men would be In the State Convention to be held at Bridge port next Wednesday. E. C. Benedict of Green wich. ex-Congressman Vance of New Britain, Mayor Preston. William Waldo Hyde and Willie O. Burr of Hartford, J. H. Swartwout of Stam ford and other prominent Gold Democrats have been selected as delegates. Mr. Troup virtually says to them that they stand a chance of being 8ut out to make room for the contesting silver elegatos from their towns. The call for the convention Invites the participation of only those who favored the princlplcx set forth In the last State and National Platforms of the party. Mr. Troup says that the gold men have simply invited themselves, and adds: "The etiquette of good society Is that It la food manners to wait until you are asked, 'his Is a peculiar position, but tho gentlemen who have had themselves elected In violation of the call, and are now so clamorous for ad mission have nobody but themselves to blame." BUKPAKD ON OATITOB. The Gold Democrat's Opinion oa tbe Guber natorial Contest. Mr. Edward M. Shepard. the leader ot the gold Democrats In Brooklyn, when asked yes terday for his opinion on the Gubernatorial contest aald : "We Democrats will nave to make a vary In teresting campaign this year. I think Justice William J Gay nor would make a very Interest ing campaign." In the political revolution a few years ago, which resulted In tbe placing of Judge Gaynor on the bench, Mr. Shepard and Mr. Gaynor were close allies, but It has been generally sup posed that they had recently drifted apart. In the Presidential campaign Gaynor was a strong advocate of the Chicago platform, while Shepard bitterly opposed It. Mora Desertions from tb Brooklyn Union League Club.

One of the Governor's supporters aald that the conference was had for tne pur pose of finding out just what shape the Gov ernor's canvass for a renomlnatlon wan in. and to strengthen the Governor's supporters In their determination to stick to the last. It was said that the gathering of the Gov ernor's clans to-day indicated s desire on their pert to have him withdraw as a candidate and not suffer the humiliating defeat which he 111 surely meet If he allows his name to go be fore tbe convention, and also for the purpose of preventing many of his followers from Inviting political annihilation If they continue In their support of tbe Governor. Tbe conference end ed about 8 o'clock, and Superintendent Payn, Congressman Ward and Mr. Patterson left on the night boat for New York city. The Govern or ana hi friends at first declined to divulge the happenings at the conference, but finally Mr. Francis made th following statement whloh was typewritten : " There Is not the slightest foundation In the rumor that any of these gentlemen came up here for the purpose of advising the Governor to withdraw. They came to assure the Govern or of their loyalty to him. and that they would be found with him at Saratoga from start to finish. They thought that inasmuch as Col. Roosevelt had been in consultation wltn Sena tor Piatt It was an opportune time to have a consultation here and lay out a plan of cam paign for the present week. They were full of confidence and loyalty." Mr. Francis said his statement was issued with the consent of all those present at the conference, and that It was approved by Gov. Black. Gov. Black's friends are considering the advisability of having Supreme Court Jus tice Woodward present Gov. Black's name lo the Republican State Convention for renomlna CITS' CAMPAIGN PLANS.

Tb Party I-lkely to Poll Only a Few Hun dred Votes In JLoutslan This Year. Nxw Osi.KA.irs. Sept. 19. Th Lily White or Sugar Republican have decided to take no part In the coming Congressional elections be cause of the Federal appointments in Louisi ana, and the indications are that only a few hundred Republican votes will be polled. There are only two Republican candidates In the field and they are tbe only ones likely to be named. F. N. Wicker In the Second and United States Marshal Charles Fontelicu in the Third. There will be no candidate in the First Fourth, Fifth or Sixth district. Col. Go Bresux. nominated by the white wing ot the party, has withdrawn on the plea of sickness, but really because of the color question : and the white Republicans generally nave decided to take no part In the election. As the negroes are disfranchised by the suffrage clause of the new Constitution, there will Be practically no Republican votes left, and the vote will be so small as probably to shut the party out ot representation st the polls at future elections. The result Is due to the quarrel over the color line and the dissatis faction over recent Federal appointments. PING BEE UAH A CINCH. Michigan Republicans Almost Certain to Renominate Him for Governor. SSmoir, Mich.. Sent 19. Many Republi cans have come here for the State Conven tion, whloh on Wednesday i to nominate a full State ticket from Governor down. Gov. Pingree has such a cinch :for renomlnatlon that there is no real candidates against him. The canvass of Promoter Pollaakr is regard ed with derision. Pingree has not even con sidered it necessary to visit the delegates to day. The attitude of the Governor in giving his support to Garret J. Dlekemn of Holland for Lieutenant-Govomor seems to settle that nomination also, although the upper penin sula may cut a figure if It can agree on either Strong or Orion. There has been no outspoken sentiment as to resolutions beyond the indorsing of the President Governor and Secretary Alger. No State Convention held In years has shown so much genuine harmony.

Th Chicago platform Democrats in Brook lyn had a meeting last night In the Athenaum. In Atlantic avenue and Clinton street to make arrangements to send three delegates from aaoh Assembly district to the con ference which baa been called at Syracuse for Sept. 37. the day ahead of the regular Democratic Convention. The ball was packed and the proceedings ware at tlmee stormy, owing to tho presence of a score or mora of machine Democrats, who had evidently been snt to defeat the object of the gathering. Th faithful Bryan men, however, stood their ground firmly, and after nearly two hours' wrangling, when It was apparent that they would not yield a point the kickers withdrew In a body amid much tumult. Ear A. Tuttle presided and Major A. R. Calhoun waa Secretary. Chairman Tuttle Mid: " I take it for granted that ws ar all sup porters of th Chicago platform, and that ws ar here to give expression to Its principles, and to demand that tbe Democratic au thorities of this State will prov true to them. A strong effort mutt be made to keep these principles to the front until the next Nstlonsl Convention. We had a bard road to hoe her. The gold In fluence is strong snd the regular Democratic organisation, to say the least, lukswarm. There Is an apprehension thst the Syracuse Conven tion will not stsnd openly and fearlessly on the Chicago platform, but will confine Itself to State issues. Our business to-night Is to select delegates to the conference of the Chicago platform Democrats, to be held In Syra cuse on Sept. 27. for the purpose of urging the regular convention not only to regard, respect, and reaffirm the declarations of the Chicago platform, but also to put on the ticket only those men who were loyal to the platform in 1890. Failing in this, they are to put a ticket of their own In the field. The Chicago platform Is going to be the keynote of the next Democratic Convention, and It Is our duty to preserve and maintain in thla State an organlrntion true to its principles." This resolution, presented by Henry A. Gouldon. waa adopted without any discussion and with great enthusiasm : Knvlrrd. Thst It la the sense of this meeting thst us Democratic mate Convention soon to meet st Byrarase should Indorse snd Kaflrm the Chicago platform of 1M1HI snd nominate candidates who openly and bonently supported that platform . It was over this resolution, also offered by Mr. Goulden. that the rumpus occurred i RrtoWid, Thst tellers be appointed to take the names and sddmees of persons who wish tn go to Hrrscase ss delpgstes or sltentstes to the Convention called to enforce the recognition of the Oblaage plat form bj- the Democratic fttat Convention, or. failing In that effort, to nomioste candidates for Bute ofttess who stood on the platform in 18K8, sod suit stand qusrsly and openly thereon. Mr. Goulden, H. M. McDonald, and others spoke earnestly In favor of the resolution, while Major Calhoun. Dr. De Bremen, and a few others contended that the policy proposed would only tend to aid In the election of the Republican candidates. When the discussion had resched sn uncom fortable hot stage and a general row seemed Imminent a Democratic leader In one of the Assembly districts, who la close at the hesd of one ot the borough department, entered the hall and took a seat at the reporters' table. The kickers seemed to take fresh courage from his presence, but failed In their evident purpose to break up tbe meeting. Tbe tumultuous talk was cut short by a demand for the previous question, and on a show of hands the resolution was adopted by a decisive ma jority. Wben the result was announced the kickers withdrew olosel v following in the tracks of the borough officials. Messrs. Breardon and Goulden were ap pointed the committee to secure the names of the delegates. To-day a list of sixty-three delegates and sixty-three alternates will be completed to represent the Bryan Democrats in Sings county at the Syracuse conference. A special train on the West Shore road, with the New York and Kings county delegations aboard, will leave for Syracuse at 9:15 o'clock next Tuesday morning. Tbe round trip will only cost $6. and hotel accommodations at Syracuse have been secured at from $1.50 to $'2 a day. FIVE THIEVES CAUGHT IB A CAFE.

When surrounded in their rendezvous the thieves were holding a feast A large quan tity of beer, wine, canned meats and other deli cacies was spread out before them. Some ot them were too drunk to offer resistance, and those who showed fight were quickly subdued and bound. The Somerset county officials have recently received many complaints of robberies com mitted in tbe rural districts. One of the most notable ot these was the robbery ot Fisher's store at New Germantown laat week. The thieve stole a handcar on the Rookaway Valley RaUroad at Wayne's Crossing on the night ot the robbery. They loaded this with a large auantity of goods from the store.

COSTLIEST MACHINE EVER MADE Tbe Paige Typesetting Machine Presented to Cornell as a Cariosity. Ithaca. N. Y.. Sept. 19. P. T. Dodge, a Well known patent attorney of Now York oity and of Washington, haa presented to Cornell Uni versity, through Dr. Thurston ot Sibley Col lege, what Is said to be the costliest piece ot machinery ever constructed. It Is the original Paige typesetting machine, the only one of its kind ever built and was constructed at an expense of nearly $2,000,000. Besidee being tbe costliest piece of machinery In the world. It is at the same time one of the most remark able and ingenious. It consists of over 10.000 parts, and Is In every detail beautifully iierfect in Its working. It Is not built on the plan ot the ordinary typesetting machine, which moulds its own type, but like a human being handles ordinary type, sets it leads it. and distributes It as though it were a person. The Invention was a failure In a commercial sense, tor even after the first machine was per fected it wss Impossible to build the machine so that It could be sold. The machine occu pies floor space 11'. by 3; feet, and has a a axlmum height of 0'i feet. The new gift to irnell Is ull the more interesting Inasmuch as it was in the construction of this machine that Mark Twain sunk some of his fortune. It Is Eiot known yet when the machine will reach thaoa. but Dr. Thurston expects it in a short line. As soon a It arrives It will be placed In tbe Sibley Museum. MAT MEET ON THE BIDEWAEK.
