A arm handshake followed and a pri vate conference of ierhaps ten minute'. When the conversation was Interrupted by Senator Victor Don ling- and Aa B. Gardiner, both the "?age of Wolfert's Roost" and the wigwam chieftain were smiling like two school children who had made up after a quarrel The committeemen reached Esopus at half past I o'clock this afternoon. All of the farmers In the vicinity of the town seemed to hae been impresari with the importance of the visit and flocked to the railway stations with cany-all", spring wagons and all manner of conveyances to take the delegation to Roemount. In the first carriage that reached Judge Parker's home were Norman E. Mack, Iavld B. Hill. Ptrry Belmont anil Thom as Taggart. chairman of the new Demo cratic Nation 1! Committee, who headed the delegation. The carriage was followed hy a long procession which -brought the rest of the visitors. When the delegation reached Rosemount they found Judge Parker and Mr. .Murphy at a conference out In the grove ssae distance from the home Here the Tam many chieftain and the presidential candi date had conterred for more than two houre.

The subject of a candidate for Governor was al, touched upon. Judge Parker expressed admiration ror Major McClel Un. Mr. Murphy, while claiming the right to have a voice In this nomination, sold he was not committed to McClellan and that It was too far in advance of the convention to settle upon a candidate Just beforeleparting from Esopus Mr. Murphy mada t:,e following statement: "1 am here in connection with other Democrats throughout the country to as sist in promoting Democratic harmony and success. Everything tliat has oc curred here to-day has impiesred me with the fact that there is nothing to pievent all Democrats uniting and making a suc cessful canvass in State and nation. New iork City will roll up the biggest Demo cratic majority lr. Its history." Murphy's sentiments greatly. editied the members of the National Committee, and n taking leave of Judge Parker this even ing unanimously expressed the conviction that New York is safely Democratic. The visiting Dcmoerailc leaders left Eo pus bubbling over with praise for the per sonality of the candidate Western mem bers of the National Committee who have been disposed to regard him as rather a oi., lm,ivIdual- hd this impression y'W "Pan ucrsonal acquaintance.

CONVENTION REASSEMBLES MRS CVRtS'P Wife of the Republican BV A 1T1 AFK CORRESPONDENT St Joseph, Mo, Jul 27 -C.vrus P Wal bridge, foimerlv Mayor of St Loul. pres ident of the Bell Telephone Cumpunj. charged with being the Rutler candidate, was to-night nominated on the Ilrst bal lot for Governor by the Republican State Convention. As a member of the State Board of Equalization. If he is elected, he would pass on the assessments of the Bell Telephone Company. Not a word was said In any of th nom inating speeches regarding his business affiliation.", or the charges that were made by Clinton A Welch in his letter to State Chairman Akln, in wt.th he said an alli ance had been made with the criminal ele ment of St. l.oui Democrats, to beat Folk for Governor. Every man lauding Wal bridge put his availability on the ground that he could get the votes- hi St. Louis. To-night the friends who nominated Walbridge are working on him to get him to state his preference for State chairman. While It is thought that he cares very lit tle for the chairmanship light, the men who are back of him make no s-ecret of their chief and abiding Interest in this feature of the convention. An adjournment wa taken to-night until 10 o'clock to-morrow moniing. It was done Immediately after Walbridge was nominated, and was for the puipose of drafting candidates for minor otllces. Sen ator McKInley has been offered the. nom ination for Lieutenant Governor, but said that he could not take It, as he has bten denying that he would have it for six months Undoubtedly the light for State chair man will simmer down to one between Doctor E. B. Olt-menth of Macon and Waller S. Dickey of Kansas City. The St. Louis friends of Walbridge ore insisting to-night that he does not want Clement's. The Walbridge faction eip turcd the Permanent Organization Com mittee this afternoon, and tlxtd it t-o that the convention will decide whether a State chairman shall be elected or whether some other method shall be chosen. PACTIONS CONFUSED. The result of the Walbridge vote has confused both factions. Both sides have developed such a bitter cae of "pie bite," as the hunt for Ped-ral ofllce has been named here, that neither cared to risk its chances to-night. With more than S00 votes oppesed to Walbridge, on lines that do not develop the full strength of the factions, only :i night's work could put the factions In condition. To-night there Is talk that John B. Sn-nger will be the Walbtidge candidate lor Secretary of state against Ben r. Russell of Steelvllle. A clicular has been literally distributed to-day. attacking Walbridge. and quoting from Russell's paper at the time that he appointed Wil liam Flewellyn Saunders Election Com missioner. Both Rui-sell and Swanger havi been active in the factional lights of the party. Tile convention was conducted on Fed eral patronage line". The talk about "Cy clone Cy" was started against Walbridge, but for some unforeseen reason the South St. Louis delegates failed to respond. Doctor Starkloff salr to-night that this would have no effect. In his opinion, on the result, as he claimed the South St. Louis animosity had worn off. Both factions are caucusing to-night. The presence of former National Commit teeman R. C.

Dickey of Kansas City is recognized as the Ket-ns candidate on every side. To show to what lengths the Walbridge element in St. Louis wnt in their deter mination to crush all opposition is the ex perience of Hiram Llovd. who was unani mously elected lust Satuiday nUlit for State CommitUetnan from the Twelfth District. Affr the arrival of the dele gates in St Jcseph it was discovered that he was oppo-ed to the Walbridge idea on State chairman and favored Bothwell for Govt rnor. The word promptly went out to slaugh ter Llod. According to the present pro gramme, Geoige P. Welnbrenner Is to be substituted in his place to-morrow. Lloyd is furious, but helpless unless the other side lets up. Welnbrenner remarked that Lloyd had a right to be furious, but that he had failed to shiw himself a "good In dian." Two bands kept the crowd In a good humor until State Chairman Akins tailed the convention tu older at 12:13 o'clock. The Revetend P V Chrisman of St. Jo seph prajed Chairman Akins addressed the convention. He talked or Itousr.velt. The delegatts applauded without enthusi asm. He talked of Republican Missouri The applause was even weaker KERENS 1 ) KM ONST1 : ATI ON. "Let every delegate lieio have the (our age of his convictions, and plan for the success of the partv," h- said. At this point foimer National Committeeman R.

He nod ded to his acquaintances in different parts of the hall. When the Kereps applause ceased Mr. Akins pioceeded to dilate upon tin. Re publican national platform. On Slate -fairs. he denounced the "machine" and the "ring." He safd that Folk had to ask permission of the "ring" before he could be- sure the cenvention would nominate Jilm. He made a plea for Republican har mony and asked that the delegates for one time act for the good of the party. Again the delegates demurred. They re fused to take the speaker's words seri ously. No better evidence of Republican apathv eoukl be given by the delegates as to their distrust of the fulsome prophecies of the chairman. Mr. Aklns introduced Mr. Ker ens. His friends again applauded the de posed leader. He said Mr. Akins had the Bible of Republicanism. "I bid you good cheer, and sav that a united effort means victory in November," he said.

Threats of Wilson and Booher Men to Adjourn to Some Oth er Place Have No Effect. CANDIDATES ALL CONFIDENT. Delegate Violates Rules and Makes n Speech in Which He Deprecates the Position the Partv Has Taken. REPUBLIC dl'BCIAI St. Joseph, Mo., July II The Demo- r cthIic Convention of the fourth Conces sional District adjourned ;late to-nlsht after taking 4M ballots ahd making no nomination. The delegates will assemble again at 9-30 o'clock In tha morning. On none of the ballots was there any change the result ot each toll call being Cot bran . Wilson X5 and BooheV 21. There is nothing to indicate when the deadlock will be broken, or how the trick will be turned. The Wilson and Booher men gave lt out this morning that if a nomination was not made to-day. the convention would be ad journed to Marvville or Platte City. This was done a. i threat, for neither of the men named care to make any change, for lt would inevitably be an advantage to the other Wilson would probably lose by a change from St. Jo-rph to Marseille, and the same may be said of Booher, if an adjournment was taken to Platte City, Wilson's home. The threat was made to frighten the BuchHnan County delegates, but they ap parently were not scared in tha slightest degre- A Holt County dtleate said: "If we can take some of these St Joseph men awa from their business for u da or two tiitj wi.l weaken." A St Joseph man ieplled: 1 . "Take the convention tuilLityviUe it you want to, it suits us- Those dele gates are all politicians and don't want tu do anything else. They can plav the 'game In Mar villa as well as In St. Joseph " J his stopped all talk or adjourning to an other cit. When this plan failed, an effort was made to have the three candi dates release all the delegates from their Itvstructlons and let them vote for whom soever they pleased. This was opposed by Wilson, because he could see no pos sible gain In the scheme for himelf. The t'oclnan m-ti wrie uoncomlttal. but might liuve agreed to the plan If Wilson had not balked. They sav that no matter what kind of a deal Congressman Cochran may make, they will vole for lilm solidly as long as the roll is called. This declaration was a surprise to some of the other delegates who last night and this foienoon expected the deadlock to be broken by a stampede of the Cochran delegates. VEST RESOLUTION. There was a decided silenee in the hall when J. W. Mytton of St Jo-eph pres. til ed the following resolution, which was adopted by a decisive vote: "Whereas. Bv the press dispatches of to-day it is evident that one of the most distinguished citizens of Missouri, the Honorable George G. Vest, is critically HI at his home: and. "Whereas, his great services to.the State of Missouri and the nation ought not to be passed unnoticed by this convention, therefore b it "Resolved by this convention that we deplore his serious illness, and extend to him and his family our heartfelt sympathy and our hope of his ultimate recovery." Owing to the fact that the OJd Fel lows' auditorium, where the session was held, had been leased for another meet ing, the convention adjourned at the erd of the afternoon session to meet in the Courthous at o'clock. At the evening session, after the four hundreth ballot. J. AV. Morii of Burling ton Junction, violating the rules of the convention, made e speech, which he got before the body under the guise of a sug gestion. He deprecated the predicament In which the Democracv of the Fourth District was placing itself, and flnjsheJ with a motion that the convention adfoum to Burlington Junction on week from to night The rhair refused to entertain the motion After the four hundred and fiftinth bal lot the convention adjourned until 9'!f o'clock to-morrow forenoon Theie 'j no change In the vote of .my of the delegations.

The determination of the Cabinet to make a vigorous protest to Russia regarding the destruction of the steamer Knight Commander, announced this morning, received a more sinister as pect when lt became known that the De fense Committee held a lengthy session with Premier Balfour presiding and the Attorney General, Sir Robert Flnlay, in coiisultation.

Ore. Mr Mitchell declared that his clients hMd shipped on the Arabia .(KW sacks of flour, valued at SlOO.Mv. that the flour vas consigned largely to Hong-Kong and was nut a war order, but a part of the normal trade of the company, and there fore could under no circumstances be con sidered contraband. The uwners ask the United States to demand Indemnity from Rus-la. The protest received prompt attention from tho State Department, but no state ment was made as to the probable a.c llon of the United States. It was said that this Government must first have com plete official reports cf all the attending circumstances, and the Ambassador was instructed to obtain these from the Rus sian Government at once. It is under stood at the State Department that the United States had laid down a regular policy In regard to seizures, to be fol lowed In all cases No action will be taken on unofficial re ports. When protests aie made n ortl oial report Of the occurrence" will bo ob tained through iegular sources, uud then action taken according to this policy. What action Is taken depends almost en tirely on whether or not the owners of the seized goods are able to furnish good proof that lt was 111 no tense contraband.

Sintsintin. Manchuria. July .Simul taneously with the advance from the scuth. the Japanese from the north have piessed forward toward the west, as It to sit ike the railroad south ot Mukden.

A telegram from General Kuropatkln was received to-day confirming the occupation of Tatchekiao by the Japanese July 2S. and adding that a Japanese division has since moved oa Hal-Cheng. A telegram from General Kuropatkln. filed yesterday, refers to a temporary wis psnsion of tha Japanese advance. A Japs anese divicion was then holding Tatche klao, with outposts several miles north ward of the main body. General Stakelberg's and General Zarou baleff's corps were at Hal-Cheng, but tha rearguard of the Russian army was half way between Hal-Chens and Tatchaklao. The Japanese, it was then believed, wera probablyhaltlug, as usual with them after each advance, to recuperate and entrench. Two Japanese divisions were neaxing Sl mouchen. which bears the same relation to Hal-Cheng as Tangohl to Tatcheklao. These forces were also stopping and throwing up earthworks eight miles south east of SImouchen. which is strongly held by the Russians. Skirmishers from either B!de Were within speaking distance. The Japanese continue to menace Llao Tang's communications by concentrating troops- at SIkseyan. but no further advance ' had been made yesterday toward Llao Yang or Mukden. VEST DOES NOT -IMPROVE.
