touUsay to then men: "McCullagh Is not

could be determined every man who had been
colonized and every leader who had taken part
' in the wot k would be In a flutter. Memories
o! the eleotlnn of 1803, when dozens of Tam
many men went to prison for election frauds,
are too lvld for them to take chances on ap
pearlnt at tho rolls.
Po Tammany Hall set out to learn who ths
men were who had been caught. Tlrst'they
dealt Tcry naturally through tho police, over
nhom Grower's whip Is always cracking. Tho
Benteantu of the police court squads holdthcli'
laces through tho favor of Tammany Hall
leaders Croker can transfer any one of them
whtnffver lie soes fit. Itwas an easy matter for
him, therefore, to Iioto those Berceanta who
keep a record of tho warrants Issued to turn
ill the election case ovqr to Tammany Hall.
Kor a f hort tlmo this scheme sucoeoded. Every
warrant Issued was known at the Fourteenth
itreot headquarters within an hour after It was
signed by the Magistrate.
Then the Magistrates, realizing that Justice
wan being defeated, knowing that tho men
' against whom the warrants were being issued
were keeplnc out ot sight to avoid serrloe, and
i that Tammany was keoplnc a record of thorn
for election-day purposes, ceased to tell tho
Sergeants about these warrants. Hut this, did
not stop the gamo. Policemen cot hold of the
, election deputies, and. by reason Ot the dopu
( lies' Ignorance of th law. either cajoled or
I bullyragged thorn Into disclosing the names of
the men against whom they Becured warrants.
McCul!aghdlHcoored what was going on and
(topped it. This started the Tammany men
after him. They threatened him with all sorts
o( things. Tho statesmen In Fourteenth street
wrote him threatening letters. District Attor
ney flardlner vowed he'd have him indicted.
Chief of Police Devery made "statement" In
the newspapers. But they didn't scare McCul-
licrli nml thnv ilfiln't. irftt thft llfltfl.
Ivery other plnn having failed. Croker de
cided to demand tho names from the courts,
for tho integrity of which be had already
avowed himself as no rospector. Accordingly,
about 11 o'clock yestorday morning, there ap
peared in tho Centre StreetPollee Court, whero
Magl'trete Olmstod was sitting, Assistant
Dibtr.ct Attorney James Grady, brother of
Thomas F. Grady, who Is onn ot Tammany
Hall's shirting lights. He told tho Magistrate
that District Attorney Gardiner wanted to see
ill tho depositions upon which warrant had
been issued in that court in election cases, and
he demanded that they be turned over to the
IM'trlct Attorney's office for examination.
, "I cannot understand." said the Magistrate.
In response to Grady's demand, "under what
revision of the law yon demand this as a
right. Section 205of the Code of Criminal Pro
cedure makes it a misdemeanor for the Court
to give this information except to certain per
sons, and there Is also a similar section In the
Penal Code, But there is nothing mandatory
In either section requiring me to give
Information to tho persons excepted. I
might give the Information to tho District
Attorney without committing a misdo
, meanor, bur. I question If I have the right
to do so before the arrest of tho person and the
return of the warrant.. You can plainly see
this, for tho same section of the code which
makes the exception In favor of tho District
Attorney makes a similar exception in favor
of the defendant and the defendant's counsel,
and I can hardly see that I have any authority
to give information to tho counsel of a felon at
large concerning a warrant issued against that
felon.
"It the District Attorney claims therlghtto
see these Informations, your brother, who Is
counsel forsomo of these defendants, might
eometomennd say: 'I understand that a war
rant has been Issued for so and so. I want to
see the Information on which the warrant I
'5 Isiiied.' Now, )ou'd hardly say that'l had the
t right to show It. th prisoner beingstlll at large.
B It Is ray opln Inn that tho provisions of the code
M refer to the disclosure ot depositions and their
' Impectlon after the arrest. However. I should
1 lite to hear the District AttorneyTm this ap
i Plication. It comes to me as a surprise. T never
heard, nor do I know It to bo recorded, that any
similar application was ever.made by any Dis
trict Attorney, and I should like to hear him
upon It."
Thereupon Grady left with the nasurance
that the District Attorney had some provisions
of tho law which Magistrate Olmsted had not
mentioned. Ho went to Gardiner and told htm
what had happened, and In a short time
Gardiner appeared In court, accompanied by
Assistant District Attorney Townsend. They
went behind tho desk, ana Gardiner, pointing
to the section of the Code ot Criminal Pro
cedure which Magistrate Olmsted had already
discussed, said he merely wanted to soo
whether tho depositions were made on In
formation and belief, and whether or not they
were In duo form. From his manner It might
hH e been inferred that he didn't care a cotton
bit whether he saw them or not, but he
changed his tune before he had gono muob
further.
Borne little tallc ensued, and the District At
torney finally said that lie had com as the
prosecuting ofllcerof this county In the per
jnrmanco or his duty (proper consideration to
Tammany Hall) to sen these depositions.
....And I now," he went on with heat,
that I shall have to make a formal demand
for them "
..In reply Magistrate Olmsted repeated that
thy demand was a surprise to him. He again
aid that ho had never known of a similar ap
plication from any District Attorney.
I think I should have the opportunity," he
continued, "to look up the law. I will not re
fuse to grant your application. I will take the
niatter under consideration and render my de
cision within n reasonable length of tlmo.''
M o. no. no." retorted Gardiner hotly.
lou must either refuse or grant the applica
tion now. here are these papers ?"
They nro here."

-(i not refuse, but I must take a rea
aonablo time to consider the matter."
,,;o,!must refuse, now. If you are going to

jerrred in the face with anger. "You are In
terfering with, the performance of my duty.
Take note of this. Mr, Townsend I Take note!

Superintendent McCullagh sent by messen
ger to Chief ot Police Devery yesterday after
noon S25 warrants against men whom h
accuses ot fraudulently registering. His action
was taken In rerponse to a letter from the Po
lice Board signifying their willingness to re
ceive the warrants after tho Superintendent had
called upon them In the name of the law to as
sist him.
Chlof Devsry sent out Superintendent Mc
Cullagh'a warrants yestorday with an order to
th precinct commanders to serve them
promptly If possible : if not. tosorvo them when
the persons they were for'camo to vote on elec
tion day, but to let them swear In their vote.
It they so doslred, warrants remaining over
after tho eloctlon to bo returned to him with a
statement ot the facta fn each caso.
But these 32S warrants do not begin to com
prise all those which McCullagh and his depu'r
ties have secured. Those or only lent as a
starter. There are others, and that' what
makes the Tammany men so wild. Tho dep
uties have a large number which thoy nro try
ing to servo In conjunction with their other
work and more aro being dally obtained. In
the police courts. Bo while Tammany now ha
In Its possession tho names ot 3'.'5 of tho man
wanted thoy aro still nt sen concernlhirall the
rest, despite the varioustricks and bluffs they
have tried to work. . . , ...
Among the other classes of voters In which
Superintendent McCullagh Is now deeply In-,
terested latitat of the paupers. This question
has already been up In tho courts. Two.ln
matesof th almshouse were held for trial by
Magistrate Meade, out urxin presentment. Ot
their case to th Grand Jury thoy were, dis
charged. Two others bavo been arrested and
their cases are still to bo passed upon by
the Grand Jury. In the former cases It
was shown that the men had been put
on the payroll of the almshouso In
August and that hence they had n right to regis
ter, but Superintendent McCullagh points out
tho fact that to be entitled to reglstoraman
must have lived In tho county four months as
a duly qualified votor. Whtlo these men were
paupers, they were not qualified to rot, and
hence, admitting that they were receiving pay
for legitimate wore .in the almshouse, thy
were not entitled to vote. ,. ...
" If you will examine seotlonOSl of the char
ter of this city," said the Superintendent yes
terday, "you will And that every lnmato of an
almshouse, whose ago and health will permit,
shall be employed In cultivating the grounds
or In manufacturing articles foruse ot the pub
lic Institutions or In some other suitable labor.
If these men are able to work why should they
be put on salary when election tlmie Is coming
on? It would be Interesting to know just how
much ot this sort of payroll padding 1 being
done. I have 170 more warrant for pauper.
I don't think they have a legal right to vote
and I'm going to see if I oan prevent them."
JO.JSCTXOJT CRIMmAZS COME JFIHST.
District Attorney's Office Mm No Tim for
the Ordinary Cases Now.
Tammany Hall has hastened to the defence
ot the men arrested tor Illegal registration.
Not only has tbe District Attorney's office
hunted up bondsmen for the men held for
trial, but Assistant District Attorney Henry
W. Unger and Chief Cle'rk William J. McEenna
have put aside ordinary oases In their office In
order to get the Illegal registration cases be
fore the Grand Jury In tbe expectation that the
complaint will be dismissed before election
day so that ihe men may vote.
The Yorkvllle) Police Court had been opened
but a few minutes yesterday morning when
the telephone bell began to ring. The Dis
trict Attorney's office had called up the court
to inquire If there were any crlsoners there ac
cused ot violating tbe election law. The clerk
who answered the 'phone said thero were not.
The voice on the other end ot the wire then
asked that the papers In the eases ot the two
men arrested the day before be sent down
immediately to the District Attorney's office.
"All right," replied the court clerk. "How
about the two'women locked up for suspected
robbery, and the woman aooused of. kidnap
ping? Do you want the papers In their oases.
too?"
"No. let them wait." the voice responded.
"We have a case ot assault here and also a
plokpooket They couldn't got ball. Do you
want the papers In their cases?" went on the
cleric.
"Goodness, no. Let 'em come down In the
usual way next week. We only want the regis
tration cases," was the answer. . .. .
Shortly afterward a messenger from tho Dis
trict Attorney's office hastened Into court with
the following typewritten message signed by
William J, MoKenna. Chief Clerk: , , ,
"Kindly send me by bearer the comrlalnts
against John Mahody and John W. -Wade,
charged with violation of Election law."
Police court complaints ore sent to. the Dis
trict Attorney's office every day except Satur
day, on which day the Grand Jury, does not
meet The object of sending down the papsra
so soon after the case is dlsnosed ot in the
police court Is that the accused shall not suffer
the hardship of a long wait In jail for the Grnd
Jury to act In the matter. Mahady and Wade
were out on ball and were not undergoing the
hardship of bolng in prison. There wore sev
eral men and women in the Yorkvlue Prison
acoused of felony, but the Dtstriot Attorney's
office was in no hurry to ,get their coses before
the Grand Jury, . .
Mahady and Wade had registered irom tne
Municipal Lodging House, at a8 First avenue.
They were anested by Superintendent Mo
Cullach's deputies, who charged that they
were legally paupers, living on. the oharlty of
the taxpayers, and had no legal right to vote.
They represent several hundred other men
living on the city's charity and who Intend to
vote If Tammany can find them tho way.
Magistrate Meado, who held tho men for
trial, said yesterday that ho bad been looking
up the law bearing upon.the matter, and was
convinced that the several hundred men work
ing for their board and.lodglng in various
city Institutions were legally paupers and had
no legal right to vote.
Tammany Hall's Law Committee at first
proposed to get out a writ ot certiorari In the
case of one of the men and make a test cae
of it before the Supreme Court. . Upon further
consideration they abandoned the Idea ot test
ing the matter In the Supreme Court. They
felt that the decision would be against them.
It was then decided to hUBtle along the papers
In tbe cases of the paupers already arrest
ed and lay the matter before the Grand Jury
to-morrow In the expectation. that the com
plaints would be dismissed. Then not, only
would the four men arrested vote, but all the
other paupers would go to the poll without
the fear or arrest.
'CASE AOAINBT TUB MTLTXYAXa,
Magistrate Flammer's Decision Trill tl
Taken to the Supreme Court.
About 300 Bowery heeler, whose rallying
cry now Is "Hurrah for Crokor and Van
Wyok." headed by "Big Tim" Sullivan, th
Senator, and "Llttls Tim" Sullivan, the As
semblyman, marched yesterday morning from
the Bowery to the Essex Market Court. The
occasion was the hearing In (he case ot Charles
J. Perry, who was arrested with Florence J,
Sullivan, the Tammany Superintendent ot the
Bureau ot Incumbrances, his brothor, Chris
topher Sullivan, and Frederick Dewlckle,
harged with claiming a residence and regis
tering from the Dartially demolished building
at 07 Bowery, About a score of Central Office
detectives accompanied the parade to the door
ot the court room and remained In th vlolnity
until th crowd got back to the Bowery again.
During the proceedings Pratt A. Brown,
who 1b associated with former Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Carponter In prosecuting the
case against the prisoners, appealed to Magis
trate Flammer to protect him against the as
saults and insult ot the heelers who appeared
to enjoy tho freedom ot the court. The heel
ers invaded the Sergeant' rpom, crowded be
hind the rail, flooded the aisles with tobaeoo
expectoration and made the air blue with
profane allusions to Superintendent McCul
lagh and his deputies. Magistrate Flammer.i
In expectation that an extraordinary session
ot th court would, hare to be held, set tbe
hearing down for 11:30 yesterday orfnoon.
Lawfr Carpenter Informed th Magbrtrate
that the witness who on Friday afternoon had
flam, jewitrJiiiiSaL.i
beerf fntfnrtdated and Tef need admittance to
the court room could not be found. , . . .
Deputy Joseph Tlernor testified that ho bad
cooled the names from the register In this ox
traonlltiarr hotel whloh can only be readied
by ladders. The names ot the seventeen men.
Including the Sullivan, he testified, were all
written on one page. Every other page la the
book wa blank. .. . . .
e vwhat'a your politics?" asked Senator Tom
Gradr of Tlegney. ...
"I am a jboraoeral." replied Tlerney,
"Don't you know that the Demooratlaparty
Sstusod to' name any men for the position of
enuty?" asked th Senator. . , , .
"lou mean that Mr. Orokcrdld?" Interjected
Lawyer Carpenter. ...... . w
Senator. Orady grew red In the faoe at Mr.
Carpenters remarks: , .....
I "StippoMruf I should say that Mr. Piatt tent
you here.?" Fa ahoutod... ...... ,, .
VYou "would not bo telling the truth," replied
Mr. Carponter. . . .
'Ho did tend you here," shouted Grady,
still louder. ,
''I say ho did n6t." replied Mr. Carpenter.
At this juncture: Magistrate Flammer
topped the controversy. ....
When Doputy O'Hollly was called tocorrpb
borate Tlorney, Senator Grady askedhlm:
"Are you a' son of Pollco Captain "O'llellly ot
Brooklyn?"
"Ys. olr." renllod O'Bellly. . . .
"Make a note of that, Tim,'' said the Senator.
"Big Tim" nulled out a notebook and wrote
something down In It, ...
. Magistrate Flammer then deolartdthat a
prima (acle'case had been made out against
Perry, and no said ho would hold him for trial.
Senator 'Grady asked him to withhold hi
decision until Monday, when ho would. seouro
a writ of habeas corpus from the Supreme
Court, He declared that If the Supremo Court
decided against Perry he, would walvo exam
ination In the casos of the other prisoners. It
the, Supreme Court decided in Perry's favor,
thon. ho sold, hd would 3ght the other oases
in ihe police court. This arrangement was
agreeable to th Magistrate and counsel for the
prosecution. t ......
While Lawyer Carpenter was talking to the
Magistrate Lawyer Drown tried. to move up
nearer tho Magistrate's desk. A Tammany
heeler pnshod him back.
"Your Honor," said Lawyer Brown, "I ap
peal to you to observe this action. I have been
violently assaulted three times In this court."
"What was the assault?" , , ... ..: ..
"This man here." he said, pointing to the
hseler, "just shoved his elbow violently Into
my stomach."
''He ought to have kicked you In the neck,"
oald Florrle SuUlvan, who was standing be
aldo tbe heeler.
This remark was not heard by the Magis
trate, who ordered tho bridge oloared of all
persons having no business tin re. The Cen
tral omoo deteotlves who accompanied the
orowd back to the Bowery asserted that thoy
only came along to protect them against possi
ble assaults by wioked llepubllcan.
TUB TKNDXJIT.OIX COLOXIXATIOX.
Mr. Fond Does Not Remember the Three
Un TTho Registered from Her House.
A woman's poor memory prevented any
progress in tho West Fifty-fourth Btreet Polios
Court yesterday toward!oxpostng a scheme for
th colonization of voters In the Tenderloin
polio e precinct. The woman was Mrs. Annie
Pond, aliased proprietor of a houso at 502
Sixth avenue, formerly known as the Bijou,
within halt a block ot th West Thirtieth
Btreet police station.
Three mon Eoenan, Felton and Sullivan
registered In the Twelfth Election district ot
the Twenty-fifth Assembly dlstrlot," and said
that they lived at C02 Sixth avenue. A deputy
superintendent of eleottom investigated and
charged that the place was a disorderly house,
aa,d that in all probability the men did not
live there. The deputy asked for warrants for
the arrest of the three would-be voters, but
Magistrate Wentworth refused to Issue them,
and' explained that In his opinion a man had a
right to olnlm a house of Ill-fame as his horOe
for thirty days for tho purpose ot voting In a
particular district.
The Magistrate did consent to give a sum
mons for the keeper ot the house to appear be
fore him and tell what she knew about her
Juests. The summons was returnable yester
ay morning. Mrs. Pond was represented In
court by a Tenderloin lawyer. Mrs. Pond
said much without giving any information rela
tlve to the case of the three voters. She thought
that possibly they mikbt have been commercial
travellers, but couldn't remember anything
deflnlte.and ehe had forgotten to bring her "ho
tel register" to court to refresh her memory.
. I wish that you oould see that register." said
the deputy when reference was made to tne
missing book.
That ended the caso so far as the summons
was concerned, but the deputy Intimated that
ho would not forget Sullivan. Keenan and Fen
ton. Magistrate Wentworth apologized to the wo
man for troubling her with a summons. She
was not so gractoua. and said that it was "an
outrage to drag a lady into court." Her law
yer hustled her out of court before ah had a
chance to say anything else.

THE BLIGHT OF TAMMANY.
BnOOKLTN'a DEMORALIZATION VNDxk
inil tlOBR'B CLAWS.
Republican Managers Declare That Since
Tammany Came Into Power the Tollce
Have Deen Forced to Condone Vice, and
That the Dorongh of Homes Is Polluted.
Any one who questions tho probable offectot
the oxtenslon ot Tammany rule to the parts
ot tho Stato beyond tho Greater Now York
should post himself as to what has already
happenod In tho borough of Brooklyn, which
has been known tor years as n otty of homos.
The Republican managors In Brooklyn are
responsible for a declaration, mado yosterdar.
that.tholr hitherto rospootablo and quiet town
Is now, " wide open " and full ot vlco. as tho re
sult of Tammany's rule and It demoralization
of th public.
In a statement Issued yesterday they say:
" Police Commissioner Frank Moss stated at
the meeting In the Clormont Avenuo Rink on
Friday evening that Tammany pollco method
are already being practiced In Brooklyn; ho
mode a statement which we propose to provo
by statins a number of facts which tho Repub
lican Oounty Commltteo has In Its posses
sion. A long list of gambling dives, which
are now flourishing in Brooklyn, could
bo published It necessary, with addresses
and tho names, of the proprietors.! Thero
I at hand enough , avldenco to. prove
that Brooklyn Is already 'wide open,' and that
It has been so since the Domocrntlo party
began Its workof Tommanylztngthe borough'
Police Department Tammany's own methods
ot blackmail and extortion have been,adoptod
by tho pollco of certain precincts, whtle hlthorto
efficient and conscientious police Captains
fiavo either been bridled and rendered harm
ess to Tammany's purposes, or have bon
transferred to now precincts where their hon
esty and Integrity would not interfere with
Tammany's nefarious schemes to raise rovenuo
for campaign purposes for tho porsonal profit
of Its bosses. . ,
" While th entire borough Is more or less
honoyoombedwlth Tammany rottenness, cer
tain wards or precincts havo apparently been
selected b the mast promising fields tor the
efforts ot the blackmailers. A glaring Instance
Is tho Seventeenth ward, old Grcenpolnt. which
Is In th Sixty-first proelnct, formerly tho Bev
entli. At the present tlmo faro, poker and
othor games of chance are running In this
want on almost every blook, Whon Inspector
Rhodes was tho Captain of this prcclnot gam
bling did not exist there, but when John
Reardon was raised .from the grade of
Sergeant to Captain there was a change.
Slot gambling machines appeared In nearly
every saloon, and these may now bo seen In all
these places. Tbe Captain has a pet patrolman
whoso nam Is Henry O'Malloy. O'Malley Is
rarely seen now In hi uniform, and whon ho Is
called for at the Station houso it Is said that he
Is out on 'special work! for tho Captain. This
work consists largely ot collecting tho police
dividends from tho slot machines. The ma
chines are run on a commission basis, by which
the saloon keoper gets 40 per cent, the manu
facturer 40 per cent, and the pollco 20 percent.
ot the proceeds. O'Malley has told saloon
keepers who refused to accspt the machines
that unless they allowed thom to be
placod In the saloons they, would In any
caso be assessed at tho rate of 20 por cent ot
the machine's probable earnings. Another
piece of 'special work' which O'Malley did for
bis Captain was to sell tickets for the outing of
the BoymourClubon Labor Day. This dub la
controlled by Senator Patrick H. McCarren,
Chairman of the Democratic State Committee.
At the Labor Day outing, tho principal guqsts
were saloon keepers and pollcomen. A few
days before the picnic O'Malloy went tho
rounds of ths ward ordering tho proprietors to
purchase tickets at $5 tch. Charles G. Frank,
whose saloon is at Lorimer street and
Bedford avonuo, resisted O'Malley' de
mands, and was then told that If ho
had a proper regard for his llsense It would be
wise for him to buyatloket This argument
had its desired effect. It is well understood
among tho saloon keepers of tho precinct that
tho Seymour Club outing tickets would be In
effect licenses to disregard tbe Exclso law after
hours and on Sunday. On the night ot tbe
Seymour Club outing only four pollccmon an
swered tho roll call for patrol duty, although
the patrol usually consists ot twenty-two men.
"The most conspicuous caso ot tho removal
of an efflclont Police Captain was that of Miles
O'Reilly, formerly in command ot the old First
or the new Forty-ninth precinct better known
as tho City Hall precinct. Capt O'Reilly won
rtoently sent to the old Ninth precinct In Gates
avenue, while Capt Dunn, formerly of the Coney
Island precinct wo transferred to ths Forty
ninth. Since this change gambling dens have
been opened by the score, and .othor
places of 111 repute havo also., begun
Business.' Tbe most notorious, ot thesp Is
a cheap music hall and 'hotel '.In JoJ'.son
street between Washington and Anamssireets.
This plaoe I advertised as 'McLaughlin's
Hotel Royal.' The place Is frequented by
womon, who aro as likely to bofound associating
with men in the barroom as in the room be
hind. On the floors above low-class hotel ac
commodations ot the cheapest order exist
"Gambling Is by no means concentrated In
the Btxty-llrst precinct Within tho shadow of
Boss McLaughlin's headquarters on Willough
by street are any number of protected pool
rooms, poker rooms, policy shops and crap
games. While some ot those may have existed
previous to tho present administration, they
never betoro wore run as openly as they nro
now. It Is woll remembered that last summer
Capt O'Reilly was severely reprimanded by
pellco officials from Manhattan lor warning his
men to keep their eyes open for such places
and for threatening punishment If they were
found to be protecting them. This was the
chief offence which caused Capt O'Reilly's re
moval. Now no apparent effort Is made to con
ceal the fact that tbe gambling dens are In full
operation, "
"Another leotlon ot the borough which is
specially Infected Is lower Hamilton avenue. In
a cheap lodging house district. This spot
seems to have peon selected to cater to tho
trade of sailors from tho water front. .Gamb
ling dives and disorderly houses ot all kinds
are flourishing nightly, and with the apparent
consent ot tho police of the Hamilton avenue
station. . . . , . .
"East New York also Is .a field for poker,
short card games, polloy shops, crap games,
and other forms of picayune gambling. Tho
scandalous disregard ot law at Coney Island 1
well known to most Now Yorkers. The Excise
law Is there a dead letter, anddlsorderly houses
and all forms ot questionable resort were In
constant operation during the summer season."

Demand for "not Stuff In th Shape of In

Many decent Democrats In the borpugh ot
Brooklyn are more than Clad that the campaign
.is at an end, and particularly that the last ot tho
so-called ratification meetings has been hold.
Not In years has tho character of the Domocrntlo
campaign mooting bebn so thoroughly low and
vile, in a dorori different Parts of the olty there
have been exhibitions during meetings that
were so shocking1 as' to call forth comment
from cvon the 61.1-tlmo 'maohlno managors,
who aro not ordinarily displeased by In
deconcy, Tho one deslro ot somo of thoso who
havo boon assigned by ,BrIdgo Commissioner
B hen's commltteo to speak at Domocsatlo
meetings seems (o have been to produco a
laugh, Not being abloto turn a neat political
point or to .win applauso by witty sallies at tho
exponio ot tho Republicans, tho speaker havo
resorted to filth, Btorlos havo been told to pre
sumably respectabla and intelligent audiences
that 'would not havo been permitted In a woll
ordered barroom, Thero has boon no limit to
tho Indecency at somo ot the meotlngs, and th
strangest part ot It all is that no one In
authority at theso, meetings, Chairman, dls
trlot leader or othor person, has sought to stop
tho indecency. It has been permitted to psss
as "good stuff." s
At ameottng held lfi the Twenty-fourth ward
on Wednesday night tho rowdy elcmont found
a speakor to their liking In the person of a
young man who had n stock of ,nasty stories.
Tho meeting ran along without formality. A
rough fellow, who was violently drunk and
who would notther Bit down nor keep quiet,
had his own. way. 'Ha cursed all tho Republi
can candidates, and tho crowd laughod. Whon
ho becamo unspeTnkably vile tho nudlenco
choored with enthusiasm. Scant recognition
wo given., to tho utterancos of thoso
who 6ccupiod tho platform and spoko so
berly and seriously. The crowd didn't want
It Tho drunken man told what they
wanted when ho shdutod, " glvo
us hot stuff," The young man with the stock
ot nasty stortos concluded to follow the drunken
man's udvlco. After a rambling talk addressed
to " yoUse," ho proocodod to tell a vicious story.
It had absolutely no point to It and there was
no political application to bo roads by telling it
It wan simply a filthy recital a dirty story that
would make any docent man ashamed to havo
credited to him. It pleased the rowdies. Whon
tho foul-mouthed fellow left tho stneo he was
oscorted down the middle alsls by a littlo pro
cession, headed by the drunken man. Ho was
a hero of tho rowdies. . .....
On the followlngevenlngdown in Flatbush an
othor exhibition of the kind occurred. This
meeting waa beld In tbe Windsor Torro.ee boo
tlon. Of the audience perhaps one-third were
boys. Hero, as at tho other meeting, drunken
men had their own war; One, an need man. who
was sufficiently prominent in Domocrntlo af
fairs to havo a seat on the platform, was so
greatly Inebriated that he should havo been
home and In bed. Ho was permitted to make
running comments as tho meeting progressed.
Another drunken man camo In with a banner
announcing tho regularity of the Hogan's Al
ley Domoorata. He took a seat near tbe plat
form and mumbled curses, mu:h to tbe annoy
ance of those who sat near htm.
The man with the filthy mouth camo on early
at this meeting. Ho had no sense of shame.
After talking In a loud voice for ton minutes
and telling" You people" what to do on elec
tion day ho lowered his voice as it for a confi
dential talk. Then be told a story that must
have. originated In a brothel. Half a dozen
men In tne audience expressed their disgust
by turning in their seats. Others left the ball.
The majority, however, soemed to expect the
vllenoss. They greeted It with far greater
applause than was given to any other speaker.
The boys In the audience, encouraged by their
elders, whistled and stamped their feet The
drunken man with theUIogan's Alley banner
howled himself nearly hoarse, sodcllghted was
ho with tho filth. The aged drunken man on
the stage rolled off his chair In bis effort to ap
plaud tho nastlnoss. The foul-mouthed
speaker, bowing ropeatedly In return for tho
applause, retired. The committee took him to
a nearby barroom and saw to It that " nothing
was too good for him."

THE OUTLOOK UP THE STATE
CENTRAL COtNTIES WILL ROLL UP
BIO REPUBLICAN MAJORITIES.
The Talk About the Democrats of Onon
daga Sleeting Anybody Is All Moon
shine Oneida, Herkimer and Lewis
Will Swell th Republican Column.
Btsacusc, Nov, 6. All talk about the Domo
orata ot Onondaga county electing anybody
to anything next Tuesday Is tho windiest sort
ot moonshine, and the estimates that have ap
peared In some of the papers crediting this
coupty with a Democratlo State Senator and
one or more members ot 'Assembly Is a more
bluff. All of Onondaga's legislative dolegatton
may a well be put la the Renubllcan column
first as last Earlr In the campaign thoro was
a orospect that the Democrat might get
something out of It There was a deal to trade
Democratlo votes for Congressman for Re
publican votes for Stato Senator and two mem
bers otthe Assembly, which. It successful,
wonld give the Democrats a gain ot three votes
for United States Senator In exohange for
nothing, because the Democrats ot Onondaga
nevor had a show to cleot a Democratlo mem
ber ot Congress. This dicker was made with
Undo Jimmy Belden, who wanted the regular
Renubllcan nomination to Conercsa and held
up this spectre to scare tho Republican organi
zation Into giving It to him. But in caso he
couldn't got It which he couldn't, he was ready
to make this deal, figuring that ho could carry
with him enough MoKlnley League and other
Belden Republican votes to Insure his success.
Uncle Jimmy worked this scheme two yean
ago, when he ran for Congress on an Inde
pendent Republican nomination and Demo
e ratio indorsement Seating Poole, tho regular
Republican candidate. At that time the Dem
ocrats carried out their end of tho bargain and
delivered their votes to Uncle Jimmy, who,
however, forgot to carry out his part of the ar
rangement and the two Democratlo candidates
for the Assembly that he promised to elect cot
left
Notwithstanding this omission, which was
bitterly remembered by tho defeated candi
dates and their friends, the present manage
ment of the Democratlo party was willing to
risk Undo Jimmy again. Bo be led them along
right up to tho day of tho nominating conven
tion, when he was suddenly and unexpectedly
seized with pain and remorse at such a cul
mination ot his political misdemoanors, and,
raising his hands in horror, declared that ho
could not think of doing anything that might
Imperil the chances of a Republican Congress
man and a Republican State Senator. For
this Uncle Jimmy has received great and
merited praise. It Is said that Undo Jimmy
suddenly saw a great light the light that
shines around the United States Senate; that
Francis Hendricks, tho smart manager of On
ondaga Republican politics, flashed it on Undo
Jimmy and put out both his eyes. He expects
to succeed Senator Murphy.
This Is why It Is that tho Democrats In Onon
daga county will not elect anybody to any
thing next Tuosday. They aro making a pre
tence for Duncan W. I'eck, an estimable gen
tleman, for the Stat Senate, and two worthy
enough young Democrats for the Assembly,
but there Is nothing In It Horace White, the
nephew of Ambassador Andrew D. White,
against whom thero Is really nothing to bo said,
will be re-elected State Honutor, and the usual
quota of tour Republican Assemblymen will go
to Albany from Onondaga county. Onondaga
county will give her normal Republican ma
jority, and more. too. and her message to the
Republicans ot th State ls,"Let not your.hearts
be troubled about that"
Utica. Nov, 5. The political campaign now
closing has been warmly contested In Oneida
and neighboring counties. Each svill register
a good-sized majority for Col. Roosevelt and
the RepubllcanUlckef. although this county
has boon tbo centre of Domocrntlo effort, be
causo it was supposed the Democrats hod a
chance to elect a Senator andlon Assemblyman.
Never has a contest for State ofllcars been ho
actively prosecuted by both parties. Despite
the fact that railroad orators and Democratlo
labor agitators from Now York and elsewhere
have been sent hore by McCarron to defeat
Senator II. J. Coggcshall and Assomhlymnn
John Williams In the First Oneida dlstrlot,
their efforts will havo little effect
Senator Coggoshall will be elected by a good
majority, and the Indications aro thnt Wil
liams, although in a Domoeratlo district will
pull through. Keefe, the lloohoster railroad
conductor, and Hooloy and Blair, two Demo
cratic spellbinders from New Vork, hmebeen
bitterly assailing Coggeslmll's labor roconl,
although three years ngo, when CogKcshiill
waH rvnnlni: oh an Independent, Hnolcv mid
Blair, In published Interviews, said that labor
organizations novsr had a stanoher friend at
Albany than Mr. Coggeshall. Thin chuiice of
faith Is due to tho efforts of MoCarren's com
mittee to get a majority In the Legislature to
re-elegt Murphy to the United States Senate.
Coggeshall has made a thorough canvass of
the county, and his majority will exceed 1.500.
