Thar mkf ' Ask, and the Answer Is, Ilepabllcnn Buc- m?' cess-A Scheme of ilia Tnmmany Fo- K' . llce'jnoardExpoied McCarren Alarmed) By The Ilepubllcan managers In Brooklyn were E tall of business all day yesterday, putting the Hf finishing touehes on tho splendid campaign W ther have, conducted for CoL Roosevelt. Ther wore more jubilant than at onr previous stage of the Ccht, and their confidence In a sweep f toe victory was Increased on contemplating f OoL Rooeovelt's final triumphant visit to j Brooklyn on Friday. The various demon r stratlons culmlnatlns at the Immense gather- l Ins In the Clermont Avenue .link surpassed, it was admitted on all sides, anything ot tho kind " ever bsfore witnessed In Brooklyn. t "What can this mean?" people were asking oh nthnr all over the boroueh. ;. "It means 'that Col. Roosevelt Is rolne to r. win and that a bis and unpleasant surprise is ' In store for the Demooratlo prophets down in YVllloughby street, who have been predicting; a plurality ot 15,000 tor their candidate on eleo , tlon night," was the natural response most widely heard. ' Messrs. Shovlln, Shea, Tork and the other Tan Wyok managers wore fairly domfoundod ovor 'the tremendous popular outpouring; In honor ot Col. Roosevelt and. especially at tho j remarkable demonstration ot 2,000 solid business mth at ths Real Estate Exchange on ' Friday afternoon. Chairman Shea has been In tho habit eaoh dar ot dishing qut to the ro ' porters supposedly trosh comments on. the eampalcn situation, and it is significant "that ; In his dellverr yesterday not alsingle word ot ; relerenoe la given to OoL Roosevelt's last de scent on Brooklyn, although every one" admits ; that It was ths most memorable lnoldentlntho . entire campaign In that borough.

Chairman Oadr will not ', budge an lnoh from his previous predictions, I which placed Roosevelt's plurality at 12.000 I or more. Col. Willis L. Oedcn, ono of thejleadors In the iCltlzons' Union fight last year, but In the pres ent campaign working rhoulder to shoulder with the Republican chieftains, made this statement yesterday: f "I believe that Roosevelt will be elected, not simply because ho ought to be, but for the rea son that tho trend ot tilings American at (he present time Is not backward. You cannot L -fool Intelligent Democrats with tho statement I that this election has nothing to do with na- tlonal affairs. The attempt to bulldoze ths ', Rational Guard Into supporting Van Wyck ' will falinajt ought to. tor the National Guards- men know who, as between Van Wyok and Booseolt. Is best fitted to oare tor their Interests." President Walter B. Atterbury of tho County F Commlttco yesterday Issued this statement in reference to "InBtruotlons to Voters," pro- Irnulrotod br the Police Board: "We discovered yesterday evidence of an In tention to disfranchise many thousands of voters who might deslro to vote a Bpllt tloket. and full publicity Bhould be given to this faot. The Board of Police Commissioners have is sued a large pasteboard placard, to be hung up in tho polling places on election day br the In spectors of election. On this placard Is a false and misleading statemont. namely: , " 'It the oleotordoslres to vote a split ticket, that Is, lor candidates of different parties, ho roust not mako a oross mark in tho circle above tha name ot any party, but shall mako a oross mark In tho votinclspa.'elboforo the name of each candidate for whom he desires to vote' "This statement is simply untrue, because thero are two ways to oto a split ticket. Which every voter should clearly know. One way is by not making a cross mark In tho cir cle at the head of any column, but by making sCslmplo cross mark In tho voting space In front ot the name of each and ovory candidate lor whom the voter desires to vote. In that oase. his vote can only be counted for those candidates for whom he has indicated his de sirs to vote as aforesaid. The second, and most usual war of voting a eplltrtiokot. and one that la authorized by Rule 111., section 110 of the Election law. Is as follows: " By placing a mark In the circle at tho head of cnlr ono of the party columns, and then, it the voter doslres to voto for somo candidate In another party column, he must in addition place a cross mark In tho voting space In front of the name of tho candidate In that other col ;.' umn for whom he desires to vote.' o "This, as I said boforo, la perfectly legal v and is the plan adopted by nine-tenths of those who vote split tickets, and yet the Board of ', Police Commissioners of the cltr of New York ! havo tho audacity to publicly stato in their ln- : i Structlons to tho eleotlon ofllclais that this must not be dono. There can be no other ob ject in issuing these placards of Instructions than to disfranchise many thousands of Domo 'eralo .'oitlzons who Intend, whilo voting the Iitinocratia tlskot, to voto for CoL Roosevelt, i LMut-Gor. Woodruff and somo ot the other Republican candidates. Tho result of these u Instructions sent out. if ths public- is not fully , informed In advance of their rights, will be that r the Democratic Inspectors will refuse to count l theso split ballot" Tho Republican inspectors Trill be instructed br us to insist on counting these split ballots, as they are perfectly legaE ' There will be contention and possibly violence - in the polling places, and an excuse tor the psmocratlo police to Interfere, which thy i ' have no right to do in any case. r "The Republican Campaign Committee ap- m - peals to all citizens to be careful in properly h 'marking their ballots. Pull instructions will J5f be sent to every Republican district captain, to Gf! whom you can. apply for any information rou m desire." ,. It would seem from an Incident whloh oo- m, ourred on Friday night that the friends ot k i eveutienator P. II. McCarren are getting some- I what anxious over the prospects of his re in election, in spite of the big noimal Democratto ff majority In the -district.

A more cosmopolitan crowd than the average audlonoo at a Now Vork theatre It would be hard to find. People of all races, crcods and political boltofs make up the assemblages, espoolally in the houses dsvotod to vaudoville. It has boon said that thoro could bo no bolter way of feeling the pulso ot the peoplo on a sub ject of general Interest than by canvassing thi nuijlonco In somo big theatre selected at random Consequently it Is significant that at every mention of tho name of Theodore Boose velt, at ovory sight ot his ploturo thrown on a sorcon In the vaudeville houses, ths audlonces havo gono Into ecstasies and cheered them selves hoarse, Justlco Van Wrck's name and his ploturo havo otlotted generous applause in tho theatres, but lt,hks boen applause of a very feeble nature compared to tho pandemonium that hits rslgnod at mention of tho name or sight of the picture of Col. Roosovelt. Tho proprietor ot two continuous perform ance houses, ono uptown and ono downtown, has had a blograph oporatlng In his theatres ever since tho campaign oponod, Excollont pictures of OoL Roosevelt, 'Justice Van Wyck, and prominent officers of tho United BUtos army and navr are displayed throo or four times a dar. Tho other night when a ploturo of Justlco Van Wyok was thrown on tho screen thoro was a great dealiof rhandelapping. but It was scattered and not particularly hearty, flhsre was a great deal ot hissing, too, but a moment later, when the Van Wrck picture dis appeared to make war for Col. Roosevelt's por trait, thero was a perfect storm ot applause, and it kept up for several minutes. - The blograph operator was pleased with the reception given tho ploturo, but when, altera pouple ot minutes, the applause showod no signs of giving out, he rcmovod It for fear ot delay ing the performance. Immodlatolr thero was a howl for the picture and the operator threw It on the screen again, whereat the tumult broke out afresh to last foreomo time. , This Is the sort of thins that goes on every night in each ot those two vaudeville houses. Everr night the operator Is Instructed to ro Terse tho ordor ot 'th'o pictures giving eaoh candidate In turn the advantago ot being the last on the screen. Justice Van Wrck derives no benefit from tho change. Pictures of Ad- SI mis Dewer. Dampson and Schler, of Lieut obson and of other wrtr heroes follow thoss of the Republican candidate, but popular as these men are. they don't begin to get tho ap plauso that oomos to Col. Roosovelt. At another variety house a comedian who Impersonates David B. Hill has tried to win npplaupe by singing oomlo songs abusing the Republican party and Its candidate. lie began this sort ot thing last Monday night, and his "gags", were roundly hissed. Tho next night tho audience mado such a protest that the comedian had to cut out half his "business." and aftorhecamoou the stage the manager of tho theatre told him that he'd have to let up. bocauso It was oildent that New York people had no sympathy with attacks on Col. Roose velt. Ho has toned down his act since then, and even says ono or two nloe things about the Republican candidate. These are invari ably applauded to tho echo. Said a theatrical manager to a reporter the other night: "lama Democrat, and I Bhall vote for Justice Van Wrck. but I do not think he will be elected. I have watched mraudlonces too closelr. Ther will have none of Van Wrck. whllo thoy chear Roosevelt enthusiastically. It Is a sign that rarely falls. I know it, because I've watched audiences at election times for rears. It It was one night Van Wyck favorite, and the next Roosovelt, I would not bo so sure, but it's Roosevelt overr night and all tho time, and I take it as a sure sign ot his election." BVSIXESS AWAITS THE EYEXX. Beat Estate Deals Put Off Until Croker's Tohe Is Drnken or 3In.de Absolute. All accounts agree that there has been a noticeable lull In real estate transactions In New York cltr during trie post week. Tho big real estate dealers have apparentlr been "hang ing off "and delaying the closing of big deals. A prominent real estate broker was asked res terdar for a reason for the scorning stagnation and his reply was that men with real estate and property interests are awaiting with a good deal of anxiety the result of the eleotlon. "Theraro not more keenly interested." he said, " than almost onr othor class of business men. The reasons for this feeling are manr. In the first place It is absolutely Imperative that there be great and fearless men on the bench as Judges. Tho necessity for this ap peals particularly to the auctioneers. We have seen the effect of a man on the bench who showed 'consideration' to the machine whloh elected him. Judge Andrews appointed a Tam many man receiver ot the ulympla, and (Subsequently the property was offered for sals br ths auctioneering firm of which Richard Croker Is a member. Again, In the changing of tho place for holding legal sales 'proper consideration' was para mount. There was no reason for the removal from the Real Estate Exchango on Liberty streot to tho Broadwar Balesroom, but Mr. Croker's firm has rooms In tha Trinity build ing and a Judge selected br Mr. Croker sanc tions tho change. Judge Daly waVturned down' for his refusal to sanction that removal, and overr real estate broker in New York city who stiU possesses a grain of Independence will on election dar uphold Judge Daly br casting his vote for him. "There are oven broader reasons for tho fall ing off ot sales. There Is an indefinable feeling ot Insecurity which keeps brokers from closing contracts, Ther fpar tho wide open olty, as ft depreciates tho valuo of property. Tho feeling Is just the same as It was when the fate of sound money bung in the balanoe in 1H80. Thero was then an absolute suspension ot real estate activity. It Is not quite so bad now, of course, but when Roosevelt takes up his resi dence in Albanr things will brigbton up. and If it depends on the vote ot real estate men he Will soon be there." TO INSURE A STRAIGHT OOPlfT. - lair Students Who Have Volunteered as -Watchers Get Thejr Instructions. A well-attended meeting of law students was held in the United Charities building last night. The law Btudonts were young men who were willing to voluntoor forsarvloeas watch ers on election day, and they got their Instruc tions last night from Wallace Maefarlane, who talked to them for over an hour on the way split and straight tickets Bhould be recorded and what the duties of the election officials were. James 0. Carter advised the Students to do their duty as watchers calmly, resolutely and courageously, but not offensively. Ther were, however, he said, to rosent any Interference with their rights, and. In any difficulties which ther might And themsolves, he said, ther could count on the unwavering support ot the Committee of One Hundred to the end. Mr. Carter said it was unfortunate that a tendency to create a subservient bench had become ap parent, but it had, and a tremondous effort to prevent such a state of affairs had been made. ,.,wew.ant the fruits of this effort,'' ho said, " We believe that the great mass of peoplo will book us up in this fight with their votes, and having accomplished this much wo do not mesn to be cheated out of our victory. The whole thing rests In a proper counting and re cording of tho ballots, and it is for rou to see that we get that." Austin O. For, who also spoke, said that he wns disinclined to bolleve that the election official); were dishonest., but that the revela tions of 1803 had shown that dishonest ofllcluls existed, and all effortsmust be made to prevent such ofllclais from accomplishing anything.

Richard Croker will not tell this rear what his dlstrlot loaders have reported to him as to the outlook for Tuesday. Ills Exeeutlre Com mltteo met at Tammanr Mall rcsterday after noon, and detailed reports were made to him br the district leaders" on tho expeotod plu ralities for Roosevelt and Van Wyok. When the agony was over Mr. Croker gavo orders that the district reports should not bo mode publlo. Tns Buh told yesterday morning how Mr. Croker usually puts the real reports in his Inside pooket and then gives to the publlo a table of figures claiming everything In sight. Nobodr in Tammanr Ball bothers to examine these figures whon ther aro published. .Thoy are prepared br Mr. Croker with tho idea that somebody may take ttook in them and that thor will catch tho vote that follows the crowd. Mr. Croker propared his lltUe table of plu ralities this roar and had It all ready to give to tho newspapers. But when Mr. Croker saw in Tns Bun yestcrdar morning n, close approxi mation to tho 'table he had mado -up, he saw ths absurdity ot giving out' his tablo after the Exeoutive Commlttoe meeting. It would be too plain that a tablo published before the dis trict leaders hod mado their reports couldnt be an honost statement. "N.o figures this rear." Mr. Croker told the newspaper men. "We elalm the oountr br 70.000. and the cltr br 08.000." "Are rou going to Issue another statement to-dar?" Mr. Crokor was asked. "Wo've got a statement for you. I said all I'm going to say at the meeting." Ono ot tho committeemen 'was asked what Mr. Croker had to say. "He talked a long while," answered the oommlttooman. "Ho told ns he hoped thoro would be no violations ot tho election law. and" "And" spoko up the reporters. "That we should do nothing to rettoot on the organizations, and" "And" "That we must do all In our power to pun ish violators of the law, even If ther wore Tam manr men. Did rou all got that evon If ther were Tammany mon? That'll look woll in print. And then" "And then"- . . ... "lie hoped there would be an orderly eleo tlon, and well, that's enough, isn't it?" "Is that all ho said?," , , . . . Oh. no. He talked a long. whllo. but just enlargo on what V eltold rou.vEnlarge upongor derly election and all that, and don't forget to put in that ho told us to punish violators of the law. oven If they are Tammanr men. That's a strong point." . ... Air. Croker had prepared a final attack on the Jlar Association. Ho did not want this pub Ishod as his personal statsmentjbut as a state ment coming from his Exeoutive Committee Borne of Mr-.Croker'B advisers have suggested to him that thought to keep in the background and let the Executive Committee do the talk ing. Here ls a part of Mr. Croker's last fling at the eminent lawyers who have led the fight against him to maintain tho purity of the benoh: The clique of Republlean3awrers who manip ulate the Bar Association for their own selfish purposes would like the public to believe that their zeal In trying to eleot Judges ot their own selection ls due to an unselfish deyotton to the publlo Interests. The real cause tor their hysterical anxiety to control judicial nominations, however, can be eaallr discovered br any taxpayer who cares to look through the books of the Comptroller's oflloe. It is a well-known fact that largo sums of money aro annually oxpended br the city in payment of Ifeos'of Commissioners appointed br Judges of the Supremo Court to condemn lands required br the city for publlo purposes. It ls also true that during Mayor Strong's ad ministration enormous sums ot monoy wore oxpendad by tho city tor fees of special counsel retained to conduct legal proceedings which should havo been-undertaken by tho paid law departments ot the cltr Government. In 1B07 no less than $105,108.01, waa, wasted in this manner. "It ls a matter of record that during the three rears of the so-called reform administration the greediest feeders at tho publlo till were the self-same Republican lawyors who are now trying to fill the bench with Judges of theirown personal selection. Among tho larger shares ot spoil scoured during the last few rears br this eminently practical junta mar be men tioned the following: Traor, Boardman & Piatt. Slll.700.00; Thomas Allison. $30. 003.33: William O. Choate. $2Z875: H. 0 M. Ineraham, $22,025; Matthew Chalmers, $22, 403:Willlam M. Ivfa $10,727.80: Ellhu Bool $18,202.00; Daniel Lord. J15.6G0: James A. Blanchord $12,200; R. V. Harnett. $10,210, and among others so favored we find the familiar names of Jnmes.0. Carter, Lawrence Godkln. W. W. MoFariane. Austen G. Fox. Frank D. Paver, James M. Varnum, William HalDln. and G. S. Hubbard. All these emi nent reformers aro earnestlyhoplnc to got their lingers into the City Treasury, and that Is the real reason for the activity In this campaign of tho so-called Bar Association." Mr. Croker's Executive Committee then coes on to ask why the peoplo of New York State didn't give the Tammanr Department of Docks and Piera $12,000,000 last winter. Mr. Cro ker's Exeoutive Committee then answers Its question br saying that the money was not ap propriated because New York ls a Tammanr town. "There can be no question but that the best Interests of the cltr will be served." Tam manr Hall concludes, by a harmonious State administration in the election of Augustus Van Wrok." A STEP TOWARD FREE BIZYER. That's What the National Democracy Would Make of Democratic Success Here. The Executive Committee ot tho Citizens' Alliance, ot which ex-Senator John G.Boyd Is President, had a meeting yesterday In the New York Timet building and indorsed the Democratto ticket. In supporting tho reso lutions of Indorsement Honry Nichols said: " The national leaders of the Democraor be lieve that the Demooratlo party and Its allies will control the next House of Representatives. It Is of great Importance, especially In Its rela tions to the campaign of 1000, that It should bo so. To win this victory will need tho united, efforts of all Democrats, and no loyal Demo crat ot this cltr can .do less than to do his best, by all honorable means, to swell the votes of our candidates for Con gress. To do otherwise would be to aid the eleotlon of the Republican candidates and atirto maintain the monopolies and financial theories for which tho Republican party stands. There is no evading this conclusion. Everr 5ote taken away from the Demooratlo oandl atos is a contribution to tho defeat of Demo cratic principles, It can be said of the nom inees for Congress from this olty that no one allogos that any of them will fall to act with their party on national Issues. Ther will stand br the party, trusting to the wisdom of our na tional leaders and obeying the manifest wishes of tne Demooratlo voters. "Of scarcely less Importance is the election of a Legislature that will return Senator Mur phy to the Senate. There every vote ls needed. Benator Murpnyhas voted right in the past. and no one doubts. ho will oontlnue to vote with his party in the future. This is a bad rear for trlfliDg.with our ballots. The success of great prinolptos Is at stake, and those of us who have labored long rears to have those .principles embodied In tho Demooratlo plat form feel that every man who stands by this platform Bhould so vote as to soonest put our party Into power," Thaddeus B. Wakoman said that tho relief of the people from tha tolls of the money monop oly was the great Issue of the campaign, it was necessary, he said, to carry New York this year ao that in 100 the Democrats could go to the National Convention and-sar. ''Now York did not go back on the Obieago platform." A ypte for the Demooratlo partr was a vote for the Chicago patform and Its principles and a vdte against tho partr was a vote acalnsttho Chicago platform principles. Tha resolution , indorsing the Democratto ticket was adopted unanimously. BVUilYJLNB DECIDE NOT TO XTOT. Did Not Even Trr to llreak Vp ths Sixth District Ilepubllcan Meeting, The Sullivan weakened, and so the riot bltl'id for last night In the Sixth Assembly dis trict did not come off.

A little before 8 o'oloek "Dry, Dollar "Sullivan showed up with his gang and looked over tho situation, lie found, Inspector Brooks' in command of twentr policemen, who were reinforced later by twenty more the found the street In front of the Republican rooms lammed with. hfalthy-look-log Republicans the found Iwp bands playing for all there waa In them, and a display of set fireworks, and he lost his nerve.

But whatever be the length ot the session, It ls unquestlonablo that tho Flftr-nlxth Congress will determine for eaoh partr the Issues upon which the battle of 1000 will bo fought. In Demooratlo, national conventions, more ovor. the representation is bated on the rep resentation In CongroBS. There are two dele gates for each mombor ot Oongross and two at large for each United BUtos Eonator. The total vote ot Bouth Caroline, a Btate lrre dsrmablr and irretrievably committed to free llvsr and Populism, was less than 70,000 In 1800, yet It sends to a National Conven tion elghteon delegates, and In 1800 It cast eighteen votes for the free and unlimited coinage ot silver.

With the addition of Kentucky's 20 dele gates to tho 578 already assured, the silver men will have a total voto of 004 In the next National Convention, or within twontr of the total sliver vote ot the Chicago Convention, and ther will havo besides the support of such strong silver States as West Virginia, which holds no convontlon this rear; Ctah, which is over wholmlngly for free silver: North Dakota, which voted for It aoltdlr In the Demooratlo Convention of two years ago. and the four Western Territories Arizona, New Moxico, Ok lahoma, and the Indian Territory having col lectively twenty-tour votes, everr one of which, without a single break, was cast for free silver In the Chicago Convention of two years ago. Thus It is demonstrated that the sllverttes aro really stronger In the control of the Demooratlo partr than ther were two rears ago. The course ot the partr In two States, remote from each other. Massachusetts and Wisconsin, fitly illustrates this. Both wsre against silver In the conventions of two years aeo;,but both have swung ovor to tho silver side since. It ls Illustrative of the position of all the seund-moner Demoorats who have gone baok to their partr. Ther are no longer Influ ential In Its partr councils except when ther yield openlr or tacitly to Bryanlsm. To the great bodr of Boathem and Western Demoorats the course of the New York. Penn sylvania and New Jersey conventions ls a mat ter of total Indifference. Those States could not prevent their having their war two rears ago and ther will be loss powerful two rears henoo. and loss disposed to exercise In oppo sition what power thor havo. It Is true that a silver House of Representa tives would not put the Demooratlo party more fully in the power ofthe silver men, for they havo oompleto control already, but it would precipitate the controvorsr undor conditions unfavorable to the honest-money men ot both parties. Much ot what was gained In 1800 would be lost In 1808, and as the cause of free sllverism relies for Its prosperity on general adversity the'alarm produced In consequence of a revival of the pernicious agitation would conduce to Its benefit, or at least so think Its advocates. A Republican House would bring the controversy to an end for the time being and the silver Democrats wonld have dlffloulty In reviving it two rears henoe. , ROOMEYEI.T DVTTONS A-PZENTT.

He was very hoarse, having spoken qverr night this weekend once In the afternoon', and his journoy around Buffalo In a driving rainstorm had not helped his voloo. He compared tho approaching election with that ot 1883 and said history was about to repeat itself.

Everr savings bank depositor and tyttr holder ota life insurance policy p Interested In tho story ot Col. Theodore Roosevolt'a-first publlo work In ring smashing. It was In 1881. Col. Roosevelt was holding his first publlo oftlcethen. He had boon oleoted to the As sembly from the old Twenty-first, district, now ths Twenty-seventh. Prior to his election there had been formed n glgantlo conspiracy to wreck life Insurance oompanles and savings banks. Thero was a Justice then named West brook, and he was In tho conspiracy. The plan was to got these ooncorns Into tho hands of re ceivers. One ot the conspirators-would become a depositor Inn savings bank or wonld secure a poller In the lite Insurance companr that was picked out tor wreoklng and would then get up a lot ot cock-and-bull charges, and with those, through ono ot the lawyors In the con spiracy, would go before Justice Wcatbrook and domand that the concern be put In the bands otarooelrer In order that his Interests bo protected. This demand would be compiled with and the Justice would appoint as receiver one ot the ring. Manr- life .Insurance com panies, notwithstanding they weroBolvent,wero thus put Into the hands of a recolvor, and their assets wore absorbed by this ring of attorneys and corrupt business mon. Many savings banks that wore also solvont were thrown Into the hands ot-n receiver and their assets were absorbed, nntablr the savlnira bnnk at Flanpur. tlos. Ulster county. Those facts coming undor tho observation ot Theodore Roosevelt, he instituted an Investiga tion of Justice Theodorlo Westbrook. It ap peared upon jtho trial before the legislative committee whloh had thta Investigation In hand that hundreds ot thousands ot dollars. In fact, sums amounting to millions, had boen consumed and absorbed by this corrupt ring, all these orders having been granted by Jus tice Thoodarlo Westbrook. The records of tho County Clerk's offlco In Albany county will disclose tho enormity ot thoso proocodlngs and the amounts of money that were takon from the policyholders In these llfo insurance com panles and the depositors of these savings banks. The Investigation demonstrated that Justice Wostbrook was Indeed a Judge who gave great "consideration" to Tnmmany Hall, and that institution, whon the report ot the committee that had this investigation in hand came before the Legislature, controlled the lobby in his Interests. There wore two reports, a majority and a minority. The majority report "whitewashed" Judgo Westbrook. The minority report reo ommendod that he be placed upon his trial for high orlmoa and misdemeanors and for mat foasance in oflloe. Br the Influence of Taaj. manr Hall In the lobby, after a tremendous strngglo. the majority report was Anally adopted br the Legislature, and Judge West brook barely escaped being nut nnon hla trial for lmpeaohment. After the adjournment of the Legislature ot 1882 this corrupt ring, supposing that the storm had subsided, still went before this Judge and received additional and enormous allowances. Upon tho convening ot tho Legislature In 1883 Thoodore Roosevelt again proposod to In vestigate tills Judge and this corrupt organiza tion. The whole matter was. however, brought to a sudden termination. Judgo Theodorlo Westbrook was holding a term of oourt at Troy, Ono morning he did not appear as usual and thoso who went to his room found him dead. He had died suddenly In the night. Tho cause of his death was never known. Bis death put an, end to further Investigation, but the In vestigation that had boen prosecuted the roar before had mado publlo tho acts of this Judge and these men and resulted In the present law regulating the fees of recolvers. TAN WXCK IN TROX. He Closes n)s Campaign with a- Speech In Lanslngburg. Tbot, .Nov. C. Augustus Van Wrok-spoke to night In Bolton Hall, Lanslngburg, before a large audience. Tho reception accorded the Demooratlo candidate was tame an compared with thq enthuslostlo demonstration that marked the advent of Col. Roosevolt on Thurs jar night. Lanslngburg ls a quiet Republican town, a suburb of Tror. accessible br means of a railroad controlled br Senator Murphy. Bol ton Hall ls owned by -Samuel Bolton, a promi nent brewer and a recent apostate from Re publicanism. Thither journeyed many Tro jans, and the enthusiasts wore made to par un consciously the tax recently levied bythe Dem ooratlo County Committee on the railroad. Thus the massmeeting served two purposes other than the ostensible purpose. Bolton was rewarded for his apostacr and the treasurr of Murphy's railroad was replenished, Judge Van Wyck was attended at the hall br Senator Murphy. Mayor Franols J. Mollor and Seymour Van Santvoord. The latter pre sided at the mooting, and In an introductory address attempted to arouse enthusiasm among the audience. Then Judge Van Wrok arose and some one oalled for three oheers. The orowd spent lts enthusiasm in one cheer, the other two being faintly given. Before.Judge Van Wyok could begin his address one ot the audience arose and exolalmed: "Judge Van Wrok. do rou believe In the principles embodied In the Domocratlo na tional platform ot 1800?" The speaker was aulokly silenced br Several policemen, and the Gubernatorial candidate began bis address, which developed Into a dis cussion ot what he termed the proper Issues ot tho campaign. He declared that tho people lo-dar were not concerned with national Issues such as the tariff and the Cuban question, but he evaded all referenoelto the sound; money Question. He also declared that tho Demo prat 0 partr was for good government now, as It always had been. In eonoludlng. he de clared that it was the partr and not the man who should be Indorsed. "A look at mr figure," he said, "or mr clothes, or mr features would not Influence rour votes, but It Is the principles of Democ racy that rou should uphold. I am convinced that on election night, when the votes or counted, the storm now muttering will over throw our opponents from power." . Ho aopoaled to all present to remember their homes and families when easting their ballots on Tuesday. Before the speaker had con cluded the orowd became noisy and manr started ti leave the hall. John B. StanehQeld also spoke, treating In a more lurid .manner the same topics that had been considered br Van WrMt. It remained tpr Mr. Stanchfleld to arous&he pent-up en ;huslasm. He told a number of funny stories, quoted humorous poetry, and wildly predicted the election of the Demooratlo tloket by a ma jority of mOOO. similar to that given to Cleve and In 1883. He declared that national Issues should, enter Into the campaign to an extent, and said that tho conduct of the war should be rebuked. He assumed all tho oredit for victories for tho Domocratlo party, the great est deeds having been performed by such Democrats as Hooson. Bohler. Wheeler, Leo and Dewer. . The orowd became restless and noisy, and the speaker was compellod to ab breviate thexonoluslon of his address, as manr were leaving. NEW HAMPSHIRE, IB STRAIGHT.

Some said It held bread, others spoke of dough, and still others spoko of'good things," and roforred to Its contents as being very sweet and honey like.

No Luck for Tnmmany in Da Ate This Tear, His Llputennnts Say. It Is common talk In the Eighth Assembly district that Martin Bngel. tho Tammanr leador ot tho dlstrlot. ls hoodooed. So cortain are manr of Engel's followers in Grand and Allen and Orchard and Essex streets ot this that theraro botting that Engel's candidates will be defeated. As one of Engel's lieutenants put It yesterday: "Martin's been hoodooed all the fall and tho district's on the bum. He's had nothing but bad luck ovorslnco the campaign opened, and wo'ro done up as suro's there's an election on Tuesday." All of which shows that the prophecies of Mr. Croker's private soothsayer don't "cut any Ice " in the Eighth Assomblr district, where Engel's hoodoo Is more powerful than Engel himself. It seems that the hoodoo began to cast Its baneful spell on Oct. 0. On that dnrEnget gavo a ohowder partr at College Pdlnt The steamboat Tolchestor furnished trans portation for the guests. Everything went well until after the Tolchesterhad started homo with tho chowder party. Then a lamp ex ploded. Two or threo womon wore badly burned, and somo of tho mon were cut br flying glass. After the accident, somebodr remem bered that It was Friday, and remarked: "Martin oughtto have known bettor than to havo a ohowder party on Frldar. And this Is what rou might 'call tho beginning of the cam paign in the district Sure, Martin's begun wrong this rear." That night the Martin Engel Association paraded through tho district. The parade was headed byBoswald's brass band. Engolrode In a carrlago directly behind tho band. Tha carriage was drawn bya pairof spirited horses. When the head of tho lino reached a point directly opposite Engol's home, at S03 Broome street, everybodr cheered wildly and rockets and Roman candles and other fireworks were set off. Tho noise frightened the horses attached to Engel's carrlago. Thor dashed Into tho band. All tho musicians escaped except Ros wald, the leader of the band, and one other, These two mon wore knocked down and trampled upon. Therworo taken toGouvor neur Hospital. . This began to look llko bad luck. The mem bers of the association began to talk of It to those who were not members, and It was not long before tho whole dlstrlot was talking about It. "Engel Is done-for fair this. rear." was the remark that could bo heard all along Grand street. He's done things he hadn't ought to done that's sure, and now the hoodoo got htm." , It got so oftor a whllo that oven members ot tho Martin Engel Association shunned tho headquarters of tholr chief. Engel made In quiries as to the cause. Somebody plucked up courage enough ono day to toll him, and Engel laughed tho man to scorn. 1 , "What's the uso of talking suoh rubbish?" he Is reported to havo asked. " Don't you know I can't bo hoodooed? Everything's going mr war. We'll win In a walk. You're a lot of fools." , Notwithstanding his bravo front, thor do ear In Grand street that Kngel has looked worrlad for a long time. Plnally. some of hla friends, thlnkingtoclioerhlm up n bit. plannod tcV glvo him a birthday partr last Tuesdar ntRht at l'lelsnor s, corner of Greene and Houston streets. Lncp didn't know anything about the affair until astHunday. Then, romombor Ing tho Oth of October, he tried to have It postponed untl after election, it was too lato then to make d fforent nrrangomnnts. At the dinner Police Captain O'Koefe, oneot tho guests, fell down stairs and was killed. That, settled, all doubt about the question of Engel's hoodoo, and ono of his lieutenants told a Buij reporter resterdar that half tho votors of the district now believe that If thor vote as Engol wants them to ther also will be hoodooed. PAGE SURE OF RE-ELECTION. It's Only a Question of tha Site of Ills Ma jority. Benator Charles B. Fade, the Republloan nominee for Btate Senator In the Beventeenth dlstrlot, ls figuring on a big majority, and w(th good reason, the district having bad big Repub lican accessions since his election to the- Senate In 1800. Tho Seventeenth Senate district is made un ot tho Fifteenth, Seventeenth and Nineteenth Assembly districts.

Last year, whon Van Wyck polled the full , Tammany vote, tho Son ato district went anti-Tammany br 001 votes. The Fifteenth and Seventeenth ABsemblr districts gave Van Wyok 2.21U majorltr. but the Nineteenth Assembly district gave an anti-Tarn manr majority of 2.0.15. Tho Nineteenth Senate district . gave MoKinler about 4.O0O majority. It will bn seen, there fore, that Senator Pago Is merely figuring on the sire of his majority ot tho coming election.
