Deuiocratlo Kntlonnl Committeemen Anx

Chicago. Julyll. Domocratlo National com
mitteemen in nil parts of tho country are much
Interestod In tho "Demonstration In Force"
that the radical silver men intend to mako here
on July 20 while tho National Committee Is In
session. Well-known Chicago Democrnts havo
recelvod letters from members of the Notlonnl
Commltteo in other States asking for Informa
tion as to the silver gathering, what it means,
and tho objects of Its promoters. In those
letters the writers do not hesitate to express
their displeasure with tho policy and move
ments ot the 111 to 1 advocatos.
Tho committeemen declare that the action
of th Amorlean lilmetnlllc Union and tho
Ohio Valley Bimetallic League in holding big
meetings here on tho same day thnNatloii.il
Committee convenes Is unwarranted. The
committeemen say that such assemblages
here ot tho men who assert that they aro
the unwavering friends of free coinage
can be construed only as an evidence of sus
picion on the part of the lilmetnlllc League and
Union that the National Committee is disloyal
to tho Chicago platform, and may do some
thing that will bo In offset a betiayal of tho
principles set out In that document.
The committeemen are reatlesi under the
Implied accusation. They disclaim any inten
tion of attempting to make issues fur 1P00.
and will merely discuss plans for party organi
zation and devise means of lalslng funds. Tho
proposed demonstrations by tho silver men
they regard as an attempt to bulldoze the
National Committee.
Sllislonary Work to Da Dons In Indiana

Imdiaxapolis. July 11. The National Dem
ooratlo Committee has taken cognizance of
tho utterances of Mr. Moras, editor ot the
Sentinel, and other Democrats In opposition to
a free silver campaign In 1000, and Is prepar
ing to mako an ante-convontlon campaign In
this Stato in support of the 10 tol Idea. With
in a few days several free silver Democrats
have received documents from the committee
for distribution, and omong thsm Is an elabor
ate argument In favor of making the issnoone
of free silver, and confining tho campaign to
It. with an Incidental tight against trusts.
It Is also announced that Allen W. Clark, Sec
retary of tho Himetnllle League, has been com
missioned to eomo to Indiana and urge upon
Democrats tho necessity of standing by the
Chicago platform and nominee. Clark will
make a tour of tke Stato and will hold confer
ences with Democrats In each of the thirteen
Congress districts. It Is asserted by free silver
Democrats that Mr. Moras, whose paper was
for the gold standard before the Chicago con
vention, has gone over to that wing and will
make a fight against Bryan.
Popallat Confesses Having Fraudulently
Marked llallots on n Recount.
Linooln, Neb., July 11. A oommlttee of State
Senators, nil Republicans, began an Investiga
tion to-day intox-arlous abuses ot Stato Gov
ernment. Tho most sonsational testimony was
that of a formor Populist janitor, Edward Si
mon, who testified to having assisted at a
fraudulent marking of ballotB in 1807. At the
election in 1WKJ a constitutional amendment
luoreasing tho number of Supremo Court
Judges was submitted. It lacked about 10,000
votes of adoption, but tho Populist Legislature
ordored a recount, as their contingent nomi
nees had been elected.
Simon testified that In several counties blank
ballots wore taken by himself, ox-Oil Inspootpr
Edmleton and two olerks and marked for tho
amendment. Some boro the signatures of
Judges on the back, but on those unmarked
the namssof Judges wore forged. He identi
fied various ballots as somo he had marked.
A. D. Christian, a banker, picked out of tho
ballots a large number he saldbore the forced
signatures of Judges In, York county. The
amendment was returned as not carried In
spite of these changes.
The committee was compelled to meet in a

rrr.s as to carraxxa's letter.
Hell's Stery Proved to Ttr raise by Official
Iteeords In Washington,
WAsniNQTON, July 11. At tho Cabinet meet
ing this mornlnc tho subject of the Carranza
letter, on whicli tho United States secured
the expulsion from Canada of Llout. Car
ranza aud others formerly connected with tho
Spanish Legation In this city, was Informally
considered, Chisf Wllkie of the Secret Ser
vice called on Secretary Hay this mornlnc
with tho original letter and tho original trans
lation made by Lieut. Wilcox of tho Bureau ot
Military Information. Mr. Hny was not Sec
retary of Stato when tho letter was stolen, and
never having soen the original was curious to
examlno It. It Is possible. In view of tho story
ot the Toronto man, Bell, that ho stole the
lettor, and that, as given out by tho United
Statosofllclals.lt contained many alterations
and was practically a forgery, that an unofficial
representation may bo made to the British
Embassy of the falseness of his story.
To disprove Bell's statements Chief Wllkie
to-dnyhad an examination made ot the books
of the captain of the watch of the Treasury. In
which a record Is kept of every person entering
tho Treasury after hours. Bell pretended to
have visited Wllkie at the Treasury on May 2!l
and May30. May20 was Sunday anda record
Is on Uloof every person who entered the build
ing on that date, and Bell's name la not tliero.
On that afternoon Mr. Wllklo had a confer
ence with his chief clerk. Mr. Mnran. and De
tectives Barnes and (Irlffln in regard to tho
Philadelphia counterfeiting cto. Ho left the
Treasury at .1:38. and spent tho afternoon on
the river. That evening he received the letter
In the mall, and at H:4H entered his olllce. He
Immediately telephoned for Lieut. Wilcox, who
arrived, according to the books, at 0:03, and
Immediately made the translation.
Lieut. Wilcox left the department at 10:23.
and at 11:27 Chief Wllkie left, having tolo-
S honed the incriminating parts of the letter to
ecretary Gage. Bell said that on Monday
morning he Tiad an interview with Wllkie,
Quesada and others, but as this was Decoration
Day and tho department was closed, neither
Boll nor the others mentioned could havoen
torcd the department without registering with
the captain of the watch, and the books show
that none of them did enter.
Allege That the Cnrrnnia Letter Was Forged

Montreal. Quebec, July 11 As a result of
the statement mado by Ooorge T. Bell ot this
city that the letter upon which Lieut Carranza
and Seflordu lioso were expolled from Canada
was forced, tho Spaniards will press their suit
for damages against tho Dominion Govern
ment for unjust expulsion. Mr. St. Pierre,
their Montreal lawyer, ald to-day that ho had
ndvlsed his ollents to continue their suit. If
Bell's statement Is shown to bo true, then tho
damages will bo against the Dominion Govern
ment. In that esse tho Dominion Government
will probably call upon the American Govern
ment to pa. as It was at its instance that the
Spaniards wcie expelled from Canada

"He ought to bo treated with silent contempt.

Any ono who will doliberntoly oppose and trv

though he were to deliberately tako up arms

Gov. Hoosovelt camo up from Oyster Bay
yesterday morning, looked over his personal
and business affairs In Now York city and at 1
o'clock joined Senator Piatt, Gen. Frnncls V.
Greono and Douglas Hoblnson, Mr. Iloosovelt's
brother-in-law. at luncheon at the Lawyers'
Club. Mr. Roosevelt hnd practically just
returned from Washington, whero he
had a long talk with President Mc
Klnloy. Gov. Hoosovelt Is entirely In
tho confidence of the President, and ho
Is not In the habit of betraying personal and
political confidences. Senator Piatt Is of the
name character and so were the others at tho
lunch bonnl. The Hon. Joel Bismarck Er
hardt. Collector of tho Poit under President
Harrison, onco mado a memorable remark to
the otToct that whero one or two aro gathered
together in political life there are bound to bo
thirty or forty rumors, somo of them with
foundation, as to tho result of tho conference.
It looked yesterday as though New ork
Stato was to have a place In President Mc
Kinloy's Cabinet. Whether It is to be Gen.
Greene or nnotlier Is not nt tho moment
known. Senator Piatt, who has been tho life
long friend, In social and business lifo, of
Secretary Algor, seems to bolleve that Mr. Alger
has mado a mistake In tying ud to Gov. Fili
gree of Michigan, especially In view of the
fact that Senator McMillan has supported tho
MoKinloy Administration all the way through.
Whether or not lion. Greene Is to bo put for
ward as a possible candldato to succeed Mr.
Alger ns Secretary of War In Mr. Mckinley's
Cabinet. Is ono of the questions which tho
President himself and certain other gentlo
men will determine, nnd they will do this, It was
said laBt night, without regard to newspaper
comment unfavorable to tho MeKinley Admin
istration, An old story was revived last night. It must
bo regarded as gossip: purely that and nothing
more. It was totho effect thatone of tho plans
discussed by Mr. Housevelt and Mr. Plntt and
the other folks nt tho Lawyers' Club yosterday
aftei noon was the calling of an extra session of
the Legislature lato in Augui-t or enrly In Sep
tember to amend tho charter of this city,
making tho term of Mayor two vearB nnd not
four yeais. This amendment, If enacted, would
call for nn election forMnvorof Greater New
lork this fall. Tho gossip was revlvod that
the ltepubllcanB will decide upon a policy
of that character after the full developments of
thu Mazet Assembly Committee nre known.
The committee la to resume its sessions very
shortly. It was not generally believed yester
day that the Republican lenders will. In view of
the complexion or thu State Senate, attempt to
adopt a pollcv which would call for tho election
of nMavorof New York this fall. Neverthe
less, it was said, nil things nro possible, and
during these summer days nil politicians had
better "watch out."
