Up and down Park row, along Broadway and In Wall street, tha strike of the newsboys against the evening editions of the Hortd and Journal, which won't come down from ten for six cents to two for one cent, raged fiercely all yesterday, and the red blood from many a juvenile nose dyed tho field of battle. It was a truly Jovous occasion for the "nowilts." Bo many pollcemon were on Btrlko duty or rest ing In reservo that the boys had things their own way, a condition of affairs of which they were swiftly appreciative By moans of a Commltteo on Discipline, which was praotl cally a commltteo of the whole, the strikers so thoroughly controlled the situation that It was nil but Impossible to buy a red-hsaded extra on any of the downtown streets. In Park row tho man who asked for one was likely to be hooted as a ' scab" If not made the target for missiles. It was a tie-up so tight as to make the street car strlkos ridiculous In comparison. The first encounter came when the delivery wagons en mo to the offices to get the early editions No sooner did the wagons drive up thnn the air was filled with missiles and the drivers and helpers sent a hurry call to the Oaklstrcet station for rellof Two very much used-up policemen resnondea and were ad v Ised br the boys to go to bed and sleep It off. 'lhoy wete kept busy'trylng to protect the wagons, until word came that the H'orM and . urn nf had reduced their prices. That caused a rush to the distributing points. It was found that the Ettnvig U'orld people were offering papers three for a cent. At this the boys concluded thatUhe victory was won and mado -i rush for the edition, but Moses Burrls. 11 vears old. who was the leader, at this point held them bick. Say, Is ills n eharltr game or does It ga all do time?" he asked the World employee who wis giving out the papers "Don't know, ' snld the emploree. "The prlie Is three for n cent now." ' Do we git any wroten agreement from youso guvs ilnt It keeps down to union rates?" demanded Moses 'J lie emilovee hadn't heard of any such agreement, nnd Intimated that the boys had better hurry up and take the chance that was offered. "Don't touch de scab papes." shouted Mos at tho top of hla voice "Dey're trrln' to vrork us " Wliile the hovs were disputing among them selves about this, word reached them that the Journal had cut the price to five for n cent, and the crowd surged ncrcss Frankfort street, but Burrls, aided br 15-rear-old John Gnllupo and 13-year-old Louls:Klrlow, restrained them from but lug Tlnnllr the ll'orM began to give papers nw.iv, nnd this caused the first break In the ranks of the strikers Hnlf a dozen bors accepted the papers and were about to take them out, when the three leaders, with a do.en backers, fell upon them, pounded and kicked them and trampled the papers under foot The affair assumed the proportions of a small riot, and a policeman came and captured Burrls. Oalluo and Klrlow nnd took them to the Centre Street Court, where the latter was rommitted to the Juvenile Asylum as an old offender The other two were committed to the care ol the Gerrr society. Their martyr dom was not In vain, for after the policeman had taken the two nwny no bay dared touch the forbidden papers Miout hal'-past 1 100 newsboys formed a phalarx, having armed themselves with itloks. nnd marched down Nassau street, shouting and bnnglng their sticks on til pavement. Some of them bore hastily Improvised ban ners, one of which read WE DON T SFLL SCAB PAVKRA. Boms few small boys who were doing a scab paper business tied before them pursued by the advance guard Tiro biz ex-bootblaoka on the corner ot Ami street lnioltntlr flourished their red headed extras In the face ot the army There was a short rush, the sound.of flat sticks fulling swiftly upon hard heads and the two fled, howling with grief and puin, while the nenahors dancod uuon their abaa rtoned stock ot papers Wherever ther caught a boy who was not with them ther punohed him until his nose bled and he was thea quite ready to loin the ranks. '1 he burs swept the financial district clear of otner newsboys, who bad been selling the red headed papers attacking them and tearing up their wares The brokers were croatly amused hy the "strike" and crowds gathered to watch the parade up and down Wall, Brond and New streets Tvro or three banana pushcart men who were unfortunate enough to get entangled in the crowd lost most ot their wares. The brokers contributed to the strike fund by toss ing cents and nickels down from their office windows to the boys who scrambled and foucht among themselves for the money So well were the strikers in control of the situation that even the uptown distributing stands couldn't handle the beets, and orders for 400, 500 and (KM) papers were cancelled right and left hr the alarmed dealers The bors were jubilant over this and declared that the willingness of. the papers to sell at a verr low price or even give awar the editions showed that ther were weakening and that ther would soon agree to anything The news women 105 nlly took up the cause, too. and Mrs, Lorcoran joined hands with her old enemr, Mrs. Shea.

Chairman Jones, whether In Europo or Arkansas or Washington, is re garded as the wholo-souled friend ot Bryan. Not oven the warmest friend ot Chairman Jones would insist that ho was n politician of natlonnl renown It is not ncoessarr for a Demoorat in Arkansns to be a politician All thnt It la necessary for him to havo Is n cer tain amount of popularity and tho ballot boxes on election day are properlr filled for him. Let that go, howover. All thoso things will right themselves at tho proper time, but the fondness nf Chairman Jones fnr voung Blllle Bryan Is almost touching Then) Is a sort of paternal feeling about it. as though Mr Jonesshould protect the young Democraflu statesmnn from the wolves of his party. It Is truly a pleasant picture to see this elderly Arkansas Democrat and the young Nebrnskan together. ft should bo said that Col. Brrati sat In the committee as the proxy for National Commit teeman Daniel J.

During the eaily morning hours National Committeeman Frank Campbell of New lork had a talk with Mr. Stone and John I .Martin, Sergennt-at-Arms of the committee Mr. Campbell informed Mr. Stono that lie desired very much tho appointment of Len II Wager ot Troy to be First Assistant Sergeaiit-nt-Arms Indoed, Mr Wagers friends wero ready to put up a light for him to msko him Sergeant-at-Arms of the committee In plnco of Mr Martin, but a compromise was reached, and Mr. Wugor was mudo Urst Assistant. He immediately nsaiimed chnrge ot his duties. Mr Martin was not In It from that Instant Mr Wager of Troy-and. romembor. he Is a Troy Democrat, brought up under the tutelage of the Hon Edward Murphy. Jr - ran tho whole show from the start Mr. Campbell was nat urallv pleased that Mr Stonn and Mr Martin regarded his request for the appoint ment of Mr Wager. The neTt business was the seating of George Fred W ill lams as tho National Comtnlttenian for Massachusetts In place of that stout old Dem ocratic warrior John W. Corcornn. The Demo crats of Massachusetts aro hereby cordially re quested to compare Williams with Corcoran and then tako a nap Ex-lrov Mtgeld. who had the proxy of William II White o' Wash ington, hnnded It over to Willis J. Abbot of New York county ALTOEI P STATS nt'T. While ex-Gov Altgeld would not listen to Col. Bryan's suggestion that he turn over his free-silver demonstration to the National Com mittee, Mr. Altgeld did listen to Mr. Brian when the young Nebrasknn asked him not to carry out his threat logo Into tho commltteo and use a proxy for the purpose of bringing the Illinois factional row before the commit tee. It may have been Col Bryan's advice which altered Mr. Altgeld s determina tion or it may have been tho knowledge that National Committeeman Thomas Oahan ot Illinois had put up the puis to prevent Mr. Altgeld from making a soene whilo acting as proxy for Mr. White of Washington Ijile last night and this morning Mr Gahnn had se. oqred sufficient support In the commltteo which would have promptly squelched Mr Alt geid If he had attempted to carry out this threat. Bo he handed his proxy over to Mr Abbot, who, with Frank Campbell of New ork State, was harmless Mr. Campbell had taken Bure ground, nnd Mr. Stone had promised faithfully that Mr. Abbot should not be allowed to give hlsvlowsof the Democratic hltuatlon In Nework before the committee Tho committee's next stop was to promptly dlsmlHs P.

A committee wis appointed to investigate, and it wan on their report that Mr Dovllu was dismissed. TILLMAN WANTS TO KNOW VV11T During tlieso preliminaries It was observed that tho Hon "Pitchfork" Tillman ot South ( arolina was restive He was not doing nil the talking. Ho could not stand It any longei He jumped to his feet nnd. In a voice that was like a springloss wagon going over n corduroy road, he demanded to know of teniporarj Chairman Stone what wns the reol purpose for calling tog ther tho Dem ocratic National Commltteo at this time. Mr Tillman looked lleree He alw-iv does Mr. Stone in his usually vvell-modulnted voleo re plied that tile committee had been called together for the purpose of adopting rules for Its guldnnce, and this was necessary on tho eve of a national tnmpaign "Rulosl rules'" in ire I Mr Tlllm-iu In roplv : "what do we want of rules? We have not hid any rules for a hundred enrs Wo don I want any rules All that we want to do is to stick to the Chicago platform of IS Ml Rules?

'that is all thu rule 1 want " There was very much more of the sime kind It wnbiin Irrelevant and vvhollv outh ( aiolin lnn speech National Committeeman Campbell of New ork was upon his feet the instant Mr Tillman snt down Mr Campbell is a verv qulit spoken man. He does no bcliovo in getting into a tight uiikss It is absolutely necessary, but when once in he is considered by his friends to be n dumlj . lie replied to Mr. Tillman Ho said " Before I came hero I tallied with in J Democratic friends In the Statu of Now urk 1 was utterly Ignorant concerning tho mo tlvis for calling the committee together nt this time The Democrats of New York were also Ignorant of the real pur poses for the call. In fact, the call for the meeting at this timo has neen considered to be somewhat ridiculous. But now that wo are here let us adopt business methods in carrying out the affairs of this commltteo. Let us keep minutes of tho proceedings Lot us proceed In orderly fashion. We haven't tno slightest uso for so much talk. Some call it oratory It seems to me that It is orator or talk and nothing else 1 am not here to dlscusscnndidatesor platforms. 1 am here In my place as the National Commit teeman for New ork State to givo what aid I can toward perfecting tho func tions of this committee. This com mittee must be properly organized. 1 tell rou that tho Republicans ot the state of New York hare almost a perfect organlration. They are at workovery day in thn yeni.not forgetting Sunday, They do not talk or orate They work. So let ur stop this oratorv. if such you are pleased to call It. and get down to busi ness." Mr, Campbell was congratulated heartily by many members of the committee Mr Till man grinned It was a sardonic grin lie does not like to bo reproved. It nasnowtlmo to take a short recess for lunch Col. Brian went off to his rooms nnd gathered about him a number ot his personal friends The com mitteemen trooped downstairs and were sur rounded br a thousand or more rampnnt 1 -co Bllv er Democrats, Populists and other followers of the Democratic party Most of them hail copies of the anti-trust spech delivered leforo the Democratic Club, New York, by tho Hon Augustus an Wvck of Brooklyn. The senti ments of his speech pleased the crowd At the same instant appeared placards declaring. " Mavor Carter II Har-lson Is our candidate for President In 1000." SILVElt MEN BECOONtZrD rORUALLT.

Bryan was again In his seat beside Tern poran Chairman -Stono when the National Commltteo resumed Its session, and he listened attentively to the representatives of the bi metallic leagues The time had come, though, to discuss the proposed change in the rules of the Democratic Na t oial Committee George Fred Williams nf atsachusetts and John G Shanklin ot lu ll a i.i were In their seats During the recess tie had had further talk with Col Brran A resolution was introduced naming ex-Gov . il mm J stone of Missouri as Vlce-t hnlrmati ot t'le Democratic National Committee, with .power to appoint a new Exeoutlre Com mittee and a new Wnrs and Meana Committee. Mr. Williams and Mr. Shanklin wereuplnan Instant, both talking at the same time. Both protested against giving Mr. Btone full author ity to appoint these two committee. They aud others ot Col Bryan's friends In the com mittee insisted that Air. Btuno before appointing those committees must consult with Chairman James K, Jones, now In Europe The friends of Col Brran In the committee Insisted that no nnparentdlscourtesy should be shown to Chair man Jones, Ther put It In this mild form, when tho fact was that they had joined hands with Col. Brran In an effort to prevent Mr. Stone from capturing the two most powerful sub-committees ot the Democratic National Committee. Col. Brian's friends carried the uar, and ex Gov Btono was compelled to announce that be fore appointing the member of these two committees ho would either by cable or othur means confer with Chairman Jones. Col. Bryan's friends snld Chairman Jones was ex pected to return from Europe within two or three weoks. An) way. Mr, Btone has no au thorltv to appoint these two committees with out consultation with Chairman Jones. A resolution calling upon the Nations! Com mitteemen to act In groups was referred to tho Executive Committee and thoie acquainted with tho situation to-night say that the com mitteemen for Now York. New Jersey, Penn sylvania. Marylandand Delaware will probably lie requested to act as n group In bringing about u bettor understanding ol the situation. All of Col. Bryan's friends were greatly elated over the defeat ot tho efforts of Mr. Btono and his friends to capture tho two most powerful nuxillary committees of the National Committee, and Col Bryan himself, when tho committee adjourned subject to the call of the Chair, smiled for the first time during the day. Ex-Gov. Btone's friends nevertholoss Insist that they will trot him nut us Missouri's candidate for tho Dem ocratic Presidential nomination next year. ALTOELD'S GREAT UEKTIXO. lilg Demonstration and Bryan Couldn't Mny Awny Hnrrlson Flayed. Citirioo, July 20. John Poter Altgeld. ex Governor, ex-Judge and hopeful politician, was probably tho happiest man In Chicago to night. Ills free-silver meeting wa a big and howling success Ills pet theories were ex ploited in a manner which he himself could not Improve. Ho was lauded br speaker after speaker as the "grand statesman ot Illinois," and he had the gratification ot hearing his arch-onemy. Carter II. Harrison, roasted and basted in a mannor to suit his epicurean taste. Altgeld sat In one of the boxes In tho upper tier with his wife and was not recognized until quite late, when a man spied him, and, pointing to him, shouted: "Altgeld I" A thousand voices took up the ory, and the ex-Governor arose and bowod his acknowl edgments Ho sit down, but tho clamor was kept up until he briefly addressed the meet ing. He declined to make an extended speech, ns ho snld the programme must be religiously adhered to, but thanked the orowd for Its kindly sentiments William Jennings Bryan remained behind the scones until n late hour, and the vast crowd which thronged the great Audi torium had begun to bellevo that It was doomed to disappointment and would not get to hear the " Boy Orator." but he was there just the snme and was loaded to the muzzla with a speech Like the shrewd politician that ho Is, he kept out of Bight till the last moment, nnd he got a welcome that waa all hla own and of the heartiness of which there was no doubt. Mr Bryan came In during the singing of the hymn "America," and the effect was decidedly dramatic as he strode across the platform und shook hands with Chairman Darrow. His presence was noticed by thn audlenoe. and the cheering which followed lnsted several min utes. Tho all-time Presidential candidate cot another groat salvo of applauso when he arose tosjieak. The great Auditorium wns crowded to Its utmost cipaelty long beforo the exercises of the ovoulng began.

Jof Jerson. Lincoln and Hr) m wore "obscuro" men. '1 he allusion to ' obscure" people and men was h sarcastic allusion to Mayor Harrisons letter declining the Invita tion to speak to-night, in which ho referred to the "obscuro committee" which had chnrge of tho meeting. The spenker said, sarcastically, that there were, fortunately, more "obsoure" voters In the Fnlted States than there worn Mayors, and he wasot tho opinion that nn official who scored "obscure" men had noriifhl to ask in tho fu ture for their votes. He added: " You common obscure people can do as yffn Please If you go about It right.'lf you realize that it is our Government, and that, in order WISHING fXJw It may be tnte of virtue that " But to wish more virtue Is to Rain," but it is not true that wishing for health brings us a step nearer the realization of our wish.

Senator Tillman was cheered to the echo as he came forward to respond to the Chairman' Introduction. He said: "Judging br the warmth of your greeting you must nave seen my name iti the newspa pers, coupled with your esteemed ex-Governor, as an Anarchist. If It be an Anarchist to believe that this great Government was found ed on the principles of right and liberty, then I am an Anarchist nnd glory in the name.

There were cries for Mr. Altgeld to come to the stage, but ho assured his friends the regular programme must be followed out. He said: "Ladies and Gentlemen: I appreciate this expression of your good will very muoh. but this meeting was organized for the purpose of giving our people an opportunity to hear some ot the great Democrats or America upon the conditions of our country, and that programme must be religiously carried out.
