It Is a fortunate situation that this people, while engaged in war. never neglect the industries of peace, and while the war waa going on and we were on- Siged In arms against a foreign foe, e Industries of the people went on and their progress and prosperity were In no wiee checked.

President McKlnlny arrived to-night and inaugurated tho Trunn mUsluslppl Peace Jubilee amid most ntisploious surroundings Over 2CXUHH) people greeted the nation's chief, and for a distunes of n mile the President and his party passed through streets that were a solid mnss of cheering citizens. The streets were bril liantly lighted with colored arches, and the national colors waved everywhere. Tho Presidential party drew up nt tho Union station at n tr. P. M. The Presldont wss ready to alight almost as soon as tho train stopped, and before the platoon of police could press back the crowd which closed around tlin train. As tho Itecoptlon Committee caroo forward, having boarded the train In Council Bluffs, the President remarked upon the comfort of his journey, and turning to tho Reception Com mittee, observed: Such a welcome would make any one forgot tho fatigue of a thous and such journeys. Scarcely had greetings been exchanged when the army and navy special arrived. The two trains had crossed the Statu practically as two ajjaW sections, running the last KM) miles almost witktn sight of euoh other, the railroad officials not desiring, for safety's sake, to place them closer than twenty minutes apart. The Beoeptlon Committee assigned the visitors p oarrlagus and the procession moved toward the centre of the olty. President McKlnley. Mayor Frank . .Monies of Omaha, and President Wattles of the Ex position occupied the front carriage, ami others spread out for a distance of several hundred yards. King Ak-Har-Bon and f.isi of hi knights, composing the secret entertain ment organization of Omaha, acted as escorts to the President. The Knights wore gsyly attired and their steeds glistened in their accoutrements of Mlver and gold Theyfonned a cavalcade that added much to the beauty of the procession. The Ak-Sar-llon knights formed Into platoons us outriders, es hortiug each carriage in four. There was total absence to the eye of police protection, with the exception of n few higher police offi cial mingling with the knights: but in citi zens clothes were a large nuiul.ur of police and many detectives had been scattered through the crowd. The procession moved to the City Hall, where the distinguished guests alighted to witness the festivities of the evening. Every toes of the wheels gave the President new surprise as to the magnitude and cuthui.iai.iii of Omaha a peace jubilee crowd. The ouval aads tried to keep the jublluut crowds back. Kir alx.et from the carriage and hi party. arM tbu waa futile. eadth vehicle wWe impeded. When Oen. Miles' carriage psssed the she nt of the crowd were sesreoly less than therewith which the President was greeted. Themand occupied the entire spaeo In front of the t'ity Hall, with a seating capacity of 1,)0U. oo Mipled by prominent citizens, city offl elnlnnnd guests from nil sections of the nation. It was decorated with llfe-slzo pictures of McKJnloy, the war heroes, and Innumerable flags and electric lights. President McKlnlny had the central seat, and around him were placed other members of the official party. The festivities opened almost Immediately. Thejy consisted of a parado composed of forty floats, historical and allegorical, lighted by many electric lights Ingeniously arranged so thst trolleys were fixed to tho over hesd street car wires, nnd thus the current wos conveyed to the floats as they were drawn along by hnrulsomely eapnrlsoned horses. The electrical display was ono of thn most elaborate efforts of tho kind ever witnessed. There were no speeches, and tho President had a claincn to enjoy the situation fo tho full 'est extent wlthoitf annoying formalities. A renarkabln scene was witnessed at the itand when a magnificently caparisoned Host, containing busts of the nvnl and army heroes, passed. The float contained busts of Dewey. Sampson, Schley. Holmon. Wnlnwrtght, Shatter, nnd some of the lesser lights of the -war. Thf shouts of the crowd were tremendous. and lliev surged around the chariot as if they 'would carry It nway by main force. President McKlnley arose with uncovered head and .saluted T the float. This wus tho signal for even greater applause. , When the float labelled "Tho Nation's rChlef. Our Onest." presenting a mngnlfl cent bust of the President, pnssed. the enthusiasm of tho crowd Increased to an exta-aordlnarr degree. Tho cheering Sfcd not cense for ten minutes after the 'float had passed out of sight. Then the official psrty brrfko up, and, followed by a great multi tude, the President's party was conducted to the Omaha Club by the Knights and Citizens' Committee. The President appeared to enjoy the rtpectacle very much, and other members of the official party were equally pleased. At f:3o o'clock to-morrow morning the mem bers of the Iteceptlon Commlttoo will call nt the hotels, each for his particular guest. The carriage, will be gathered nt tho Omaha Club, Wttero a parade, again under a mili tary escort, will be formed and will proceed to tho exposition grounds. Tho line will start nt 10 o'clock.

Bohtos. Oct. 11. John F. Fitzgerald, the only Democratic Congressman from New Eng land, was unanimously nominated in the Ninth district for a third term to-day. The unanimity was due to the fact that Fitzgerald's opponents did not attend the convention, 30 of the 111 delegates being absent. There is talk of run ning an independent candidate against him. Instructions to Tammany Spellbinders. About a hundred Tammany Hall spellbinders met in tho Wigwam last night to get their in structions as what to say and what not to any during the campaign. They were coached by Maurice F. llolahan and Maurice B.Blumenthnl, Tammany orators of experience. Mr. llolahan told the spellbinders to answer all objections to " too much Van Wyek" by saying that Van Wyck and Van Wyek was a combination that could he depended upon to expose all Republi can scandals and to punish all wicked con spirators Sir.

Devoted Principally to the Canal Plank, bat the Candidate Rernpitnlnte tha Other Plank Also (All but the Missing Silver Plank), and Hay "I Caaeur." The Hon. Patrick Henry MeCnrron. Chair man of the Democratic campaigner at tho Hoffman, handed out last night the letter of acceptance of Augustus Van Wyek. the Demo crat le candidate for Governor. It I as follows: Tt V en. Prid'rirk C. ffrbrnuh and OUurt, Mtmburt qf tkt ntiHcatinn itmmiUt. tfr. Gicnti.kmfn: When you favored me on the evening of Tuesday last by calling at my house to Inform me that the Democratic party had nominated mo for the office of Governor of this State. I took occasion, while accepting the nomination and expressing my deep sense of the honor conferred, to promise thnt I would. In the course of a few days, make a formal acceptance, and at the same time set forth my vlows on several matters somowhnt moro fully thnn was practicable just then. In ficcordanco with thnt promise I now write this otter To the platform adopted by the Btnte Con vention at Syracuse I give niy unreserved In dorsement, from the first line to the last. I stand upon the pledges anil declarations thore made. At tha outset. I think It proper to ex press my hearty concurrence In the line of distinction drawn between State nnd national matters, since It Is quite plain that the Gov ernor of the State Is not officially concerned In any of the questions which our national au thorities are enllod upon to settle, and which, happily, arc. in not a few important Instances. quite removed from thn field of mere partisan oontrovorsy. Nor would I limit my appro val of thn distlnotlon thus made to the present conditions alone. Experience has convinced me that n substantial advance for the cause of f:ood government would beiniule If voters could ie persuaded, nt all times, to deal with munic ipal candidates on municipal grounds nnd State candidates on State grounds, it is cer tainly much easier to understand why politi cians with records that will not bear thn light should deslro to divert nttention to Irrelevant questions than to discover how honesty nnd efficiency iu office nro to be promoted by such arts. From tho tone of our political opponents, a stranger might infer that thn State of New York is a commonwealth of but little Impor tance, either in point of population, commerce, agriculture or manufactures. He would as suredlv never learn, from anything said by them thus far In the present canvnss, that the State has a population of morn than six and a half millions, thnt its chief city Is the greatest of American municipalities nnd stands second to London alone, that Its canals pass through 180 nourishing towns, that over Its railroads nearly on"-fhlrd of tho oxports and Imports of the entire country aro moved, that Its public schools arc engaged In the In struction of 1.170,000 children, and, In short, thnt It well deserves to be called distinctively tho Empire State. It Is not to be believed thst thn thoughtful voters of the Stats will give their approval to a mode of campaigning so little In harmony with their own dignity. I note with pleasure the emphasis put on the problem of onnal management by the Demo cratic platform. In view of the report recently made to Gov. Black by the commission ap pointed by him In March of this year to Investi gate the manner In which $0,000,000 of thn public funds have been expended. It is hardly an exaggeration to sar that "reform In oanal management Is, In the State of New York." "the supremo Issue of the hour." As thn report just alluded to has been widely published by the firess. It Is unnecessary for me to do more, n this relation, than to lay my finger upon a few of Its leading and uncontested conclusions. The poople wore given to understand thnt, with the $l.000.000 which they were nsknd to authorize, and which thsy did authorize, the Improvements In the watorwnys would be completed. As the report shows, tho money ha all been expended, with tho result Indi cated by the following table: "The actual condition of the work on the different canals Is u follows: Comvlettd IncompUte Work Wirk. Work. Not Ut. F-rle Canal Mttn. Miln. Milri. Ktern division 29.5.1 27.A9 M.tlnJ Middle division 33.18 7.1m Nona Western division 8.4Q 112.40 S1.S1 Total Erie Canal r,.'i.iu 214.00 83.4W7 OhampUin Canal r. sso 24.03 ami Oswego Canal 11.63 0.73 24.11 Total all canals A5.70S 244.74 141.017 How the case stands, free from all technical ities, is again set forth In the report. In tho fol lowing cogent paragraph: When the people voted to simply ti.ooo.OoO for the improvement of the canals they wero led to lie. lieve that amount sufficient for the work. The en tire sum has beeu expended and the improvement la not onc-balf done. They have demanded that they be informed why the money has not sufficed for the improvement and how their funds have been ex pended. We have given such information aa to expenditures as a dlllircnt investigation has brought forth. They have also demanded that they be told finally what money will tie needed to com plete the work they have aanctloned, and we have replied with all tbe deflnltenesa possible. The re salt la aurprislng to those unacquainted with the facts. Tne cost of Improving the canals will be about two and one-hslf times what the people were told would be necessary, while the facta we have ascertained and reported account for the Improper expenditure of a million of dollars, exclusive of moneys paid out for ordinary and extraordinary re- .airs, which amount to not leas than one million five mndred tbouaand. The spirit In which our opponents face this problem may be Inferred from their endeavor to obscure It under cover of references to Ques tions that are in no degree involved in the duties of thn Governorship from tholr refusal to admit that there has been any wrong done and from tho following rcmarkablo pledge In their platform : If there are errors in the system and In the law we will correct them. If there has been fraud, we will deter aud puuleh the wrongdoers. It is thus evident that, to the Involving of tho Stato In an expenditure likely to prove more than double as large as the sum authorized by tho people, they attach no sort of Importance that they decline to accept the report of the commissioners appointed ny tho Governor as conclusive of Anything, ami. third, that theyl have not yet become convinced that there have been either orrors to correct or frauds to pun ish. When we further remember that the errors and frauds and partisan misuses of power traced home and fixed by thn commis sion were all committed by the supporters, rep resentatives and followers of the gentlemen who controlled the convention from whose platform I have just quoted. It might seem as If the appeal for a new lease of power were ad dressed rather to the lovers of comedy than to men with whom the conduct of public affairs is a serious business. That the sober-minded taxpayers of this State will not Intrust to wrongdoers whose malfeasance has been made manifest, the task of reforming, removing, aud eradicating themselves. Is au expectation justi fied by comparatively recent history. At the present time there Is an Inquiry being conducted by a commission of distinguished merchants into the causes of the failure of the port of New York to maintain its relative as cendancy among the commercial centres of the country. Cnn It bo doubted that one of the causes Is to be found In tho wretched condition to which tho waterways of the State have boon reduced, or that there will lie still further loss to lament if the hand of uncompromising re form bo not, with little dnlay. applied to the work of substituting Intelligence and Integrity for incompetency and lareonous methods in the management. If there be. in uny quarter, a failure to appreciate both the important ser vice which the canals have rendered In the past and the vital relation In which they still stand to the commerce of the State, the follow ing passage from the report of the Commis sioners already referred to may serve the pur poses of enlightenment: On the lines of these oanals are to be found no leaa than 1 SO cities and towns, mauy of great Importance, all active and flourishing. It is asserted by those beat inf. irmed that the canals have been their crea tor: that every one of them haa been effectually aided by tbe atreamsof commerce on thecanela upon which it is located, no one can deny. Since l srm there baa passed over the Erie Canal an aavrngsl tonnage of uierrhandiaeof the enormous bulk of 2ru,2H7,441 tons, reuresen ting a money value of S7.iitt7.rtJ8, 230. figures that tbahumsn mind osn not grasp, showing mi annual average of tone carried of four aud a quarter millions. In value II 28,000,000, In the light of these facts, no intelligent voter will fall to perceive the Importance of bringing to an immediate nnd the shocking and ruinous process of administration laid bare In the report before me. I'pon the other points iu the platform of our party I deem it unnecessary to write nt so muoh length. Thn Balnea law is, iu my judg ment, justly denounced as partisan in Its pur pose aud oppressive In many directions, favor able not at all to thn cause of order, but to the frrowth of vice, and. In tho mean provided for t enforcement, utterly antagonistic to that American spirit which nas always looked with contempt upon what may be termed the "spy system of administration.

I dun wholly to th violation of tho Intent of the State Consti tution by our political opponent Had the de clared purposes of that Instrument been con formed to. there would have been no such monstrous law passed a that which singles out the city of New York for special surveil lance In the mnttor of the ballot box. nor would the cities of the whole State be once mora threatened with a return to thn system under which the wili of the people of the ov orol cities wa nullified by the vote of Assemblymen and Senators who never saw tho communities affected, and by the decrees of dominant politicians who suffered no con sideration of right to restrain them from making prey of the revenues, the office nnd tho franchises of the public. Homo rule for cities is Indispensable to their good govern ment. Not until this Is established mm main tained long enough to convince tho voter thnt It I not to te departed from, ("an we expect to see that lively Interest taken in purely munic ipal matters, by the whole body of the electo rate, that I required for tho working out of result entirely worthy of the Amerlenn people. What In said in the platform demanding low taxes nnd In opposition to unnecessary legisla tion will he objected to br no intelligent citi zen. Unnecessary multiplication of laws is nn evil against which all enlightened opinion is arrnyod That high taxes operate to tho disadvantage of the tolling multitude Is n proposition too well estnbl. shod by the masters of the selenco of political economy to admit of controversy. To Impress upon tho man who labors with his hands, whether he lie a property owner or not, thnt he is above all other persons the sufferer from extravagant publlo expenditures, is to bring to benr n truth second to no other In fos tering wise aud striking down Ill-considered schemes for the outluy of public moneys. I favor, as the platform does, "honest civil service laws. Incapable of official jugglery, and enforceable alike by and ngnlnst nil parties" "according to their letter mid spirit." The National Guard is rightly madn an object of special attention, to the end thnt it may be restored to tho efficiency and character that It hud In the not remote past. That labor should be represented on the State Baflroad Commission Is settled by tho law and by obvious conslderatlonsof public policy alike. The unjust apportionment of legislative rep resentatives la so scandalous that I shall be surprised to find any of our opponents openly defending it. This wrong strikes at the very heart of popular sovereignty, and cnn never be submitted to without encouraging aggressions, thn logical end of which Is to subject perma nently the many to the few. With the declaration for biennial sessions of the Legislature I am In complete accord. Ex perience has abundantly shown this to be a change in the right direction.

When the reporters called at the "hoo dooed" Democratic headquarters In Court Square In. Brooklyn yesterday morning. Chair man John L. Shea had a cheering statement all ready for them. The battle, according to Mr. Shea, is already as good as won. Coming down to figures, Mr. Shea gives Van Wyck a plurality of 20.000 over Itoosevelt in Kings county. In spite of all this confidence of the Van Wyck managers In Brooklyn the oollectlon of the "sinews of war," In the shape of a glgantlo assessment on placeholders, saloon keepers and all others who are brought into close re lations with the municipal machine, is to be pushed forward as quickly and secretly as possible. The various district leaders who have charge of these collections have beon told thnt the tight is a very tough one. and that the borough of Brooklyn will get no more favors from Tammany unless a respectable majority is rolled up for Van Wyek. Mr. Shea and his associate mnnngers sav their first grand rally for Vnn Wyck. which Is to take place to-morrow night in the Acad emy of Music, will come up in proportions and enthusiasm to the old-fashioned Hill demon strations iu the same hall. Justice William .1. Guynor is to preside, and. in addition to the candidate himself. Mr. Edward M. Sheimrd and Mr. Andrew McLean are to speak. Mr. Joseph C. Hnndrtx will not. so It was an nounced yesterday, make an address. r A sharp factional warfare lias lust broken out in the Democratic ranks in tho Klatbush district, and It threatens to extend to other di rections. Sheriff Creamer, who bosses tho district, has become Involved In a dispute with Henry Hesterberg, the most popular Demo crat In Flatbush. The friends of Mr. Hester berg are indignant over the shabby treatment ho has received from Wllloughby street, and while not openly In rovolt they projiose to let tbe Creamer contingent run the campaign in their own way. Mr Hesterberg said: "I am going to take a rest this fall. I have always deemed it best to listen to the voice of the people and not to dictate to them." Such a declaration ns this is sure to receive a sharp rebuke from the Wllloughby street management. FflV WYCK'S OFFICIAL ATTENDANT. Supreme Court Officer Patrick Nolan Ha Nothing Klae to Dd at Present. Patrick Nolan is one of the regular officers attached to tho Supremo Court In Brooklyn, and the county of Kings pays him 1 1.200 a year for his services. He was formerly tho Democratic leader in the Twenty-third ward, and undoubt edly owes his appointment to his pleasant offi cial berth to hi political activity. Several years ago Justico Augustus Van Wyck, who is also a Twenty-third warder, selected Nolan as his personal court attendant. Now. since Justico Tan Wyck retirod from the bonch to accept the Gubernatorial nomination, all business in Part III. of tho Supreme Court has beon sus pended, but all the same Officer Nolan con tinues his personal attendance on his former chief. Ho comes down to the Court House each morning, receives any letters addressed to Candidate Van Wyck, hurries with them to the Hancock street house and remains there while the retired Justico Is at homo, acting ns his body guard. Mr. Nolan's acquaintance with the Demo cratic statesmen makes him just at this tlmo an important adjunct to candidate Van Wyck's home headquarters. Probably when (lev. Black appoints a successor to Justice Van Wyck and business In Part 3 is resumed, Mr. Nolan may tender his resignation In order to not as Candidate Van Wyck s mascot duriug the remalnderof the campaign. Syracuse Democrat Go It Alone. BnurosE, N. Y.. Oct. 11. The withdrawal of Congressman James J. Belden from the politi cal field put a sudden end to the plans for fusion of tbe Democrats and the McKlnlny League. Consequently the Democrats to-day nominated candidate of tholr own In the First and Fourth Assembly districts instead of In dorsing, as they planned to do. candidates nominated by the McKlnlny League. William Stnts was nominated In the First district aud Warren D. Tallman In tho Fourth district. Albany Independents Out of the ltn.ee. Albany. N. Y.. Oot. 11. The Independent Municipal party, which nominated an inde pendent county ticket and candidates for Con gress and Senator, has decided to withdraw the nominations so as not to Interfere with Republican success In the county. The Inde pendent Municipal party 1 composed mostly of Bepubllcans. and their Independent candi date for Mayor of Albany last fall received more than 0,000 votes. Petition for Silver State Ticket. Amstibdxm. N. Y.. Oct. 11. Petition are being circulated in Montgomery county for Ignatures to be filed with the Secretary of State for ths nomination of the sliver Demo cratic State ticket. Sixty signatures ure to be secured iu each county. There Is no difficulty Iu getting signatures of Democrats iu Mont gomery county. P. M. Stewart Won't Bun for the Assembly. Perez M. Stewart, who was elected to the Assembly last year from the Nineteenth dis trict 011 the Citizens' Union ticket, and who wa renominated by the Cits several days ugo, has declined to run. The Cits haven't decided yet whether to run a candidate iu his place or ROOSEVELTS "NO" TO CITS. THatT ASK MM TO "DECLinM" A noMlKATIOS XOT FILED. Law Doesn't Allow It and He Itefmes -Off to Albany to Nominate Hint Nn That He Can IDecllne-Will They tie Rooievelt Pet It Ions to Nominate Another Man T A committee of the Citizens' State party, made up of Paul Fuller. John Jay Chapman, and Alfred M. Klein, descended upon Col. Itoose velt at the Fifth Avenue Hotel yesterday morning and wanted him to sign a nice little typewritten document making him decline a nomination of the Independents, "filed or to be filed." The Cits didn't give any wsrnlng of their approach, and it was with utter amnze ment that the regulars around Bepublican headquarters witnessed their entry into the camp of ths enemy. When they got at Col. Itoosevelt each member of the committee shook his hand very gravely, and then they made known the object of the visit. They told the Bepublican nominee that they wanted him to decline their nomination at once, and then they produced the little paper that they had so obligingly drawn up. Col. Roosevelt, with out looking at the paper, politely refused to de cline a nomination which had not yet been legally made. Very muoh crestfallen, the committee went back to Its headquarters to talk the situation ovor. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon they ap peared at Republican headquarters and sent In their cards to Col. Itoosevelt. When he came out the four retired to a corner of the room and had a long conversation. Finally Col. Roosevelt and Mr. Fuller retired to Chair man Odell's room, where they spent fully an hour. Messrs. Chapman and Klein waited outside. When asked what object the independents had in requesting a declination from Ool. Roosevelt before they had legally nominated him. Mr. Klein said: "Why should we delay? We're anxious to get into this campaign as soon as possible, and we .limply want to get Col. Roosevelt's declina tion at once, bo aa to be able to go ahead with our plans." "Is It true that you would like Col. Roose velt to accept your nomination?" naked a by stander in what was presumably a spirit of fun. NO, ?lr," said Mr. Chapman, most emphati cally. "We do not want him to accept. We do not want him on our ticket." "But supposing he sticks?" Mr. Chapman looked nt Mr. Klein, and Mr. Klein looked at Mr. Chapman, and It was easy to read in their faces how delighted they would be at such a condition of affairs. They Bald nothing, however, and a moment later Col. Itoosevelt came out with Mr. Fuller, there was another discussion In the comer, and then the representatives of ;tbn Citizens' State party shook hands with the Bepublican candidate and went away. After they had gone Col. Boosim elt said to a reporter of Tub 8uk : "Those gentlemen wanted me to sign a paper declaring my Intention of declining their nomination. I told them that such a document was not worth the paper it was written on. I wrote them long ago that I meant to decline their nomination, hence I could see no use in signing such a paper at this time. They know what my Intentions are In this matter, and I assured them that I hud no idea of changing them now. It will be time enough for me to decline the nomination of the Citi zens' Btate. party when its petitions are filed and I am legally the candidate of .hat party. That, I understand, will bo to-morrow. I might say that I shall act la this matter as my counsel. Mr. Root, directs. That Is all I have to say." Mr. Fuller, speaking for the committee, said: "Col. Roosevelt will decline our nomination as soon as the petitions nominating him are filed with the Heurctary of State, and he has received notice to that effect. He doesn't went to be premature." Mr. Fuller and Preble Tucker will go to Al bany to-day to file the petitions iu the office of the Secretary of State. In the matter of de clining the nomination, a member of the Be publican State Committee said yesterday. Col. Roosevelt will net entirely on the advice of his counsel. This man udded. rather signifi cantly, that unless there were legul complica tions. Col. Roosevelt would undoubtedly de cline at once. It was stated on authority that cannot be questioned yesterday that tho Republican or ganization has evidence in its possession that the Citizens' State party went on using Col. Roosevelt's name In getting up their petitions after they knew that no would not run on the independent ticket. This evidence Is in the shape of a bushellbasket full of letters from all parts ol the State sent In by men who say they signed the petitions of the Citizens' State par ty within the past week or tea days on tho rep resentation that Col. Roosevelt was to be the candidate. Secretary F'ax of the Republican State Committee said on this point yesterday: "The Citizens' State party, having gDt their signatures by false pretences, are now en deavoring to profit at the expense of the man whose name they used." Chairman Odcll was asked yesterday wheth er legal proceedings would be taken to show that the Independents hod no right to nomi nate any candidate for Governor hut Col. Roosevelt on ths petitions to be filed to-morrow. He said: "That Is a subject I must decline to talk about now." BROOKLYN WO.VEX FOR ROOSEVELT. The Woman's Republican Union League Will lo Campaign Work for Him. A meeting of tho Brooklyn Woman's Repub lican Union League,' to make arrangements for campaign work, was held yesterday afternoon at th Stuyvcsant Heights clubhouse. The club indorsed Col. Theodore Roosevelt for Gov ernor and Timothy L. WoodrufT for Lieutenant-Governor. The mention of Col. Roose velt's name was the occasion for an outburst of applause which was lod by a number of Tenth Cavalry and Sixth Infantry men who were present. " t.'ol. Roosovelt Is a Israve and fearloss mnn." said Mrs. Bostwiek. tho President, "and ono who Is entirely fit to be at tho head of the gov ernment of the State of New York. In tho war with Spain he did his duty for his country and we, as members of this organization, will now pledge ourselves to do our duty to make him the next Governor of Now York." Mrs. Bostwiek said that the members of the organization would visit all tho lodging houses throughout the horough and do missionary work for Col. Roosevelt. Before the close of the campaign tho Bepublican women will hold a public meeting and try to have Col. Roosovelt and Lieut. -Gov. Woodruff present.

Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery is an almost unfailing cure if taken in the earlier stages of the disease. It will cure consumption and all allied dis eases, as bronchial, throat and nasal affec tion. It cures by going to first principle. A man' body starves a long time before consumption attacks him. The tissues of his lungs starve for lack of sufficient nour ishment. They become inert and half desd and then are attacked by the baccilli of consumption. Tbe " Golden Medical Discovery restores tbe long-lost appetite; it strengthens the wesk stomach and cor rect the impaired digestion; it promote ' the flow of digestive Juices and facilitates tbe assimilation of tbe life giving elements of the food into the blood. When the blood is pure and rich, old inert tissues are torn down, carried off and excreted, and new, healthy, muscular tiasuea replace them. It allays inflammation of the mu cous membranes, soothe the cough, fa cilitate expectoration, and deepens tha breathing, supplying the system with a much needed stock of oxygen.

In regular session assembled, entering loyally and enthusiastically upon the labors of ths campaign, presents ths following pream ble and resolutions for adoption: " Whtrrat, Ths Republican party, over trus to Its principle for the maintenance of sound government, having met In Saratoga In State convention and adopted a strong platform of principles and nominated tha choice of th people as candidates for State office, Snolred. That we heartily indorse the plat form adopted at Saratoga and commend It for the cogency, clearness and forcefulness of Its utterance on nil the living political issues of the hour, and as being In strong contrast with the weak, evasive and cowardly platform adopted by thn Democratic) party at Syracuse; and, be it further " tnoh-etf. That tho nomination of Col. Theodore Roosovelt as candidate for Governor and Timothy L. Woodruff as candidate for Lloutonant-Govnmor. nnd their associate can didates onthe State ticket, convincingly shows that tho Rcpublloan party has gladly obeyed the demands of the people of tho State. ' RftoHfO, ThatthnCongroBSlonnl. Judiciary.

Chairman Waiter B. Atterhurr congratulated his associates on the comploto harmony whioh now characterizes the organization. "We all." he said, "realize It to be a fact that ths Republican party In Kings county wss nevermore solid and united than It is to-day. Gentlemen who differed sharply with us last fall have come forward and tendered their services In securing the election of our candi dates this year. Tho loaders In the Low move ment are working hand In hand with us in this campaign. I do not know and have not heard of a single Republican who voted for Seth Iow who Is not go ing to vote for Col. Theodore Roosevelt. Thn Republicans have made many discoveries during the last year. I can asHure you In all sincerity that the prospect of Republican suc cess just now Is every bit as bright as it was two years ago. when tho McKlnley campaign was under full headway. Applause, Bright as tho prospects are, there Is plenty of work to be done. The election district associations will be called together Immediately for campaign work. We should never lose sight of the fact that the real effective work must be done by thn rank and file of these organizations." The Court street headquarters was thronged all day with ths campaign managers. Col. Michael J. Dady. the Chairman, announced that nearly all the plans for the canvass had been completed and that there was not a single discouraging feature all along the line. "I have had a talk," he said, "with Gov. Black over the telephone. He spoke of the un doubted success of tho Republican ticket and promised to come to Brooklyn to help the cause along. With the party solidly united as it Is. and with all the Low men and Indepen dents back In the Republican ranks, there seems to be no doubt whatever that Roosevelt will carry Kings county by a fine majority." Tho Auxiliary Committee, headed by Col. Willis L. Ogden, who wan the chief Low man ager In Brooklyn lost year, sent out yesterday a btg Roosevelt and Woodruff banner to each ward association, and most of tnem will be un furled with appropriate ceremonies before ths close of the week. Quarantine Commissioner Schroeder, who hss a large acquaintance with the German voters, was an early caller at headquarters yes terday. He said: "I find the Germans throughout the olty very largely In favor of the election of Col. Roosevelt. They admire a brave man and they appreciate tho gallantry of the Colonel of the rough riders. They will not be won over to Democracy despite all the fairy stories put out In Democratic papers for campaign effect." Congressman Dennis M. Hurley of the Sec ond district said: "Already I have made a pretty thorough tour of my district. I know the ieople thoroughly, for I have been through a dozen or moro campaigns with them. I have found many Democrats who are going to vote for Roosevelt, and If the Colonel doeB not carry Kings county I will be a very surprised man on election night." It leaked out yesterday that Mr. Fitzgerald. the young lawyer who was unexpectedly selected by the Democrats to make the fight against Congressman Hurley, is a protcgij of Senator Grady and an assistant In his office. It was the intention all along, until tho night the convention met. that former Congressman John Clancy should have another chance to run against Congressman Hurley, but a hur ried order camo from Wllloughby street slating Fitzgerald for the place. It Is now said that a direct request from Richard Oroker In favor of Fitzgerald was the cause of Clancy's setback. LAYISO OUT ROOSEVELT'S ROUTE. Republican Orators Bate an Kaaler Row to Hoe Than the Enemy. Tho Hon. Benjamin B. Odell. Jr.. Chairman of the Republican State Commltteo, and the Hon. William Barnes, Jr., Chairman of the Stato Executive Committee, devoted last even ing to making up the route for Col. Roose velt's speech-making tour through tho State. Odell and Barnes are juniors, and yet they are considered to be mighty astute politicians. Mr. Odell's father, a fine old gentleman, is Mayor of Newburg, and Mr. Barnes's father, another fine old gen tleman, is still one of the Republican bulwarks ot Albany county. Tho Itinerary for Col. Roosevelt will bo completed cither to-day or to-morrow. From all appearances both the Republicans and the Democrats ure to make a great burst of speed from an oratorical stand point in tho last two weeks of the campaign. The Republican bureau is very much better equipped as far as speakers are concerned than the Democrat io bureau In the Hoffman House. The Republican speakers are provided with consistent national doctrines and are not afraid of confronting State issues. The Demo cratic campaign speakers, on the other hand, ure to be sot adrift all over the State handi capped by the idiotic procedure of the Syracusa State Convention, which Ignored the national plutform of 1 Mini. In no State campaign here tofore in the last thirty-five years have the Democrats Ignored and refused to mention tho national platform of the party. The Republican campaigners were prepared to say last night that all of the fighting element of the party and all of the Democratic allies of the younger generation, which admired and extolled James G. Blaine as a stalwart and lighting Republican, are arrayed with tho Re publican campaigners In support of Col. Itoosevelt. This is merely mentioned as a feature of the campaign, for tbe reason that Tammany Hall bus been claiming nil the young Democratic vote for Vun Wyck. The Republican campaign managers have received nows to the coutrary. The effort to array the Germans and the Hebrews also ugulust Itoose velt has, It was declared, proved futile, for the reason thnt Theodore Roosevelt is regarded as a broad and liberal-minded citizen, and Demo cratic campaign reports to the contrary are already known to bo without the shadow ot truth. The Democratic campaigners have said all along that Col. Roosevelt would be a mighty gooacandidatu for tho Republicans for the first two weeks, and after that Van Wyck. the Democratic candidate, would grow in tho estimation of the voters. In polities It is rather a loiibttul compliment to speak of u candidate as "a growing candidate. It belittles him from the start. The Republican campaigners said that Col. Roosovelt was Increas ing in speod evory day as a candidate: that the voters all over thn State recognized that Augustus Van Wyck was one of the stoutest sup porters of Bryan and Bryanlam in lstim. and that he Is Tammany Hall's oandidatu for Governor. The effort to befog tho voters ot lb.-State us to the real sentiments of the De mocracy by ignoring the Chicago platform of lMs: will not prove successful, according to Republican campaign manugers. The Democratic National Convention Is two years off. The control of tho Democratic party 111 the nation is still In thn hands of the Demo cratic National Committee, made up of fifty members. Thirty-seven of these fifty are luniiticul supporters of the Chicago platform of It-Mil. Although the Democrats of the Stato of New York have ignored this year the Chicago platform of lsusi. they will be compelled to stand by the platform which the fanatical thirty-seven out of ths fifty members of the Democratic Nationa1 Committee submit to the national convention in ltiou. rutted Democracy for Roosevelt T The James O'Brien United Democracy is talking of support mg Col. Roosevelt. Ex-Senator Bixby said yesterday: " All good Democrats ure absolved from alle giance to the Syracuse ticket. That conven tion has deliberately thrust aside the principles of tho Democratic party. Tho I'nited De mocracy will not support the tloket of the silver Democrats either. We think Roosevelt's a pretty good sort of a man, and, anyway, we'd like to be on tbe winning aide this yer. We won't stand for Croker turning down Justice Daly, and that's all there is about It. We'll declare ourselves after our meeting next week." Republican Assembly Nominations, Mew York County. Dill. Dirt. 3 b .uia J. Hoeolnger. l Oustav 1. Tosa. 4 -J. Louis Welu bur. 15-Krrdrrick W.
