Tho Democrats who gathered In tho Demo

as to tho possibility of tho Hon. David 11. Hill
ncceptlns tho Invitation of the club to attend
the Jefforsou dinner. Tho Hop. Porry Belmont.
President of tho club, would not say it Mr. Hill
had boon Imlted. As a matter of fact, Mr.
Hill has been Invited. So has Mr. Cleve
land. So havo a. number of other Demo
crats. Mr. Cleveland will not nttond the
dinner. He doesn't like Perry Belmont. Mr.
Hill's friends say It Is vory doubtful If Mr. Hill
will attend the dinner, for the. reason that the
Sago of Albany doesn't llko Mr. Belmont Tho
Clovuland pcoplo ln tho Doraocratlo, party said
that no Clevoland man should attend tho din

nnd personal, which Mr. Belmont's frlonds said
last night had put him Into ambiguous rela

mentioned that whon Mr. Aryan camo to

who hnd roslgned from the Demoorntlo
Stato Committoo. presided at a meeting In
the Madison Square Garden, whero tho Hon.

It was learned last night that the dinner of

as likely to bun sad disaster, for tho reason
that all Democrats Democrats measured by
tho Chicago platform of lKjtJ remembctedMr.
Belmont's conduct In 1HIH1 nnd bad refuted ab
solutely to attend the club' dinner.
Another reason. It Ir slid, why Mr. Crokor
hnsdocldod tomnko tho dinner n Statu affair
Is that Mr. Belmont, tho President of tho club,
accented temporarily a military placo nt (ho
hands of President McKInloy,
The Hon. DniilelJ. Campau of Dotrolt. Chair
man of tho Executive Committee of tho Nn
tlonnl Democratic Committee, said tho othor
night at tho Hoffman House to a number of his

V. Hlnkloy nnd other jutorestlnc Democrats,
who seemed to think that thoy wero a
rcalforcoln tho Democratto party of the na
tion. Fora groat many years. It was pointed
out, tho General Committee of Tammany Hall
has met thirty days beforo the assembling of
the Legislature nt Albany to denounce corpora
tions nnd trusts, but for tlje first time in a
great many years tho General Committoo of
Tammany Hall has not met this year for
thispurposo. .lust why tho'Genoral Commit
tee of Tntnmnny Hall, which is tho Hon.
Itiohard Crokor. has not taken any stop at this
time is ono of tho Interesting things In local
Anyway. It beeamo positively known last
night that tho Domocrats of tho Southwost and
West and Northwost who havo been Invited to
attend the dinner of tho Domocratlo Club on
Jefferson Day will not attend, and that It Is
even doubtful if Mr. Hill and other "warm"
personal friends of Mr. Crokor will And it con
venient to be present.
Thn Idea of an expansion dinner originated
with Perry Belmont and died when Mr. Croker
said that It wasn't what wns wanted. Mr. Bel
