Democratic Nomination for Oorornor Will Support Oaorf C Day for Place on Stmt. Ticket Uamocratlc Folltlee. ffilWCltl 10 TlU JOVRltM. AD COCMKR. Hartford, Sept 21. From the present Indications It looka aa if there was go ing to be a big fight at the coming state democratic convention at New Haven over the nomination of a candidate for governor. Ona of the gentlemen who have been prominently mentioned for the honor is the present lieutenant- governor, Ernest L. Cady of this city. The Hartford delegates are strongly ooDOsed to his nomination. The dele gation consists of fifteen gentlemen, and It is said that they will go to New Haven and vote first and last and all the time against the nomination of Lieutenant Governor Cady. The democrats in this state recognize the fact that the republican party has put In the field an exceptionally strong candidate for governor, and that In the present state of politics it will take an other exceptionally strong candidate to successfully oppose him. The dele. gates say that Lieutenant Governor Cady is no man to put up against Mr. Coffin. One of the members of the delegation called upon Judge Fenn of Winsted and asked him if he would accept the nomination should it be tendered him by the convention. Judge Fenn uncon ditionally and absolutely declined to acceptlt under any circumstances what ever. One of the delegates then went to New Haven and saw several prominent New (Haven democrats at the Monticello club. He found them all floating and was Informed that they were undecided upon anyone. As far as could be as certained, however, they were In favor of Mr. Benediot of Greenwich, but as he had withdrawn they were all at sea. The only man who appeared to be at all acceptable to-them was Judge Morris F. Beardsley of Bridgport as the guber natorial nominee. The Hartford... em issary telephoned immediately to a ho tel In this city, where the delegates were in secret session. He asked them if they would support Judge Morris F Beardsley of Bridgeport for the first place on the ticket They replied that that name would be satisfactory to them and that they would gladly sup port him for tfevernor ill preference to anyone else. The Fairfield -and Litchfield county delegations are solid for Judge Beards ley. The Meriden delegation is also solid for Judge Beardsley. This action 'of the Hartford delegation In favoring' Judge Beardsley, and the apparent consent of the New Haven delegation to his name for the first place on the ticket means that in all probability a strong combination in bis favor will be formed. All the delegations are also for George B. Day of the Pope Manufactur ing company of Hartford, for treasurer, This is a kickover against Sanger. THB LOCAL VIEW, Democratic politics are becoming de cidedly warm and it is expected that the state convention, which will be held in this city next Tuesday, will prove more than usually interesting. From the present outlook it does not seem probable that any of the guberna torial timber so far proposed wm suo. ceed In carrying off the coveted plum at least not without a contest and per haps prolonged struggle. Thus far a number of names have been proposed for the gubernatorial chair, prominent among which are those of E. C. Benediot of Greenwich, Lieu tenant Governor Ernest L. Cady, of Hartford, Judge Morris F. Beardsley of Bridgeport and Hon. Ratcliff e Hicks of Tolland county. Each of these can didates have some backing, but Judge Beardsley of Bridgeport is clearly In the'lead and may possibly succesd in carrying off the ooveted nomination. , The delegates to the convention from Hartford will oppose the nomination of Ernest L. Cady for gubernatorial hon ors, even though Mr. Cady is a rtsi dent and prominent manufacturer of the city of Hartford. There are fifteen delegates from the capital city who will be present at the convention and they will work tooth and nail against the nomination of Mr, Cady. Already an emissary has been sent through the state, visiting New Haven, among other cities, and endeavoring to oluietly bury the Cady boom. The choice of the Hartford delegates for governor will be Judge Morris F. Beardsley of Bridgeport and they will work for his nomination with all the ability which they possess. They will also support George E. Day, vice president of the Pope Manufacturing company of Hartford for a prominent place on the state ticket and claim that they will be able to succeed in landing him. It is an open secret that a mem ber of the delegation has been to Judge Fenn and asked him to accept the nomi nation for governor and that the judge has declined the honor. From this statement of facts It is apparent that everything is not .har monious In the democratic ranks. The present indications point to the nomi nation of Judge Beardsley, but should the contest be prolonged, it is more than probable that a dark horse will be trotted out and become the nominee of the party.

Yet the State Pair ! the Beat Exhibition Ever Raid. ' ' , Meriden, Sept. 21. The fourth and last day of the state fair of 1894 was the only really good one of the exhibition. Four hundred boys from the reform school attended in a body to-day and were treated to peanuts and oandy by Superintendent Thatcher. This was the first time in three years that the truant boys were admitted to the fair, the, late Superintendent Howe having stopped the custom because some of the pupils cut up capers much to the annoyance of the fair managers. The agricultural society will lose money this year on account of the bad weather. Up to last night the gate re. ceipts were over $2,500 behind those of the first three days of last year. The managers of the fair have at least the satisfaction of knowing that they have had the best exhibition ever held. BOTH BOBBED i ONE KILLED.

New York, Sept. 2L Police Captain Delaney believes that he nipped in the bud what would have proved a serious swindle if it had been allowed to ripen, when he arrested this morning at the Adams house on Eighth avenue, James G. Watson, on the charge of Joseph Conway, No. 96 Clinton Place. Watson, the captain says, had been advertising in a morning newspaper for help of va riouskinds, and telling persons who responded to apply at No. 70 Eighth avenue. At that place the applicants were informed by Watson that the po sitions were in Florida, and could be got by going there. He told each applicant, Captain Delaney learned, that he was going to send three or four hundred persons to Florida on Saturday, and asked him If he cared to Join the party. whether he could pay half the fare $10. If so, he was to present himself to Wat son on Saturday. The appeal for money, tne captain says, was put by Watson In such a way as to prevent his being kept in custody, in case of arrest for when Captain Delaney arraigned Wat son In the Jefferson Market police court to-day Justice Hogan told him- that there was nothnlg-on which the man could be held, and he wa-3 accordingly WANTED TO DIE TOGETHER.

They Ware Made by Jkn Johnson at tha Waltham Track. Waltham, Masa, Sept. 21. Three new world's records for John 8. Johnson of Syracuse marked the first day of the record-breaking meet, which will be held on the Waltham Cyle track every pleasant day for the rest of the month. Johnson has been In training here for a week and was In the pink of condi tion. There was not a brent h of air stirring, the cement track had been swept clear and the weather condi tions were perfect Johnson came rut for the half-mile reiurd flying start with pacemakers, made by Bliss of Chicago, on the Springfield track. Bliss' time was 64 34 seconds. John son did it easily . In; 04 seen id. In doing this an entirely (lew Idea in pace making, conceived bi Tom Eck, was u,ed. In previous trl.ii the racers hud bien slightly delayed by tli? n.' rucemakers being either too slr.w or awkward on the change 'f tandems. To avoid this Tom Eck start -.1 tha two tan-1 ms 'ngother ahead of Johnson. Mayo and Sanders Ws-r on the fore most tandem and cut' the- wind for L. A. and Charles Callahan, who followed on the second tandem. When the flr team was exhausted, the Callahans, comparatively fresh, kept right on and the delay of a change Was avoii.Ml. The quarter was made in 2t 4-5, .-"lower than record time, but on the home stretch Johnson spurted ahead of his pace makers and lowered the world's record for the half by 3-5 seoonds. The Calla han brothers were doing some record riding, too, and lowered the world's tan dem for the half to 51 1-5. Johnson was sent to his training quarters and in fifteen minutes re turned to try for the two-thirds of a mile with the same system of pace making. This record, too, was made at Springfield, September 1, by Bliss in 1:14 3-6. Johnson rode even better than In the first attempt. He reached the quarter In 26 S-6, the one-third In 35 3-5 and, the half In 62 2-5, this latter being even ower than the recorld he just established, but as the timers had not al caught the distanlce it will not be claimed. In the final sprint for the tape Johnson gave an exhibition of speed that never has been equalled on this or any other track. He literally ran away from the? speedy tandem team and cut the wire three seconds below the previous record, doing the two-thirds in 1:11 4-6. His trainers refused to let him try for the mile to-day, but he goes againstt that record and all Intermediate dis tances Saturday, and will remain on the Waltham track until every record up to the hour Is his, or until he is con vinced he cannot attaj. them, TlieFoot flnard. The Foot Guard will hold their fall field day some time next month. A com mittee was appointed last night to ar- range for the parade. A committee was also appointed to draft resolutions on the death of Charles Hemingway. Are Beady to Sign. Bostoa, Sept. 21.

One of the largest con tractors in the city to-day signed the new agreement for an advance in wa ges and signed the $1,000 bond for Its faithful observance. Two other con tractors are ready to sign to-morrow. Improvement in Trade- New York, Sept. 21.

C. P. Breckinridge, and James Duane Livingstone, In which a knife was used by the congress man's son. has stirred the city to Its depths. A wordy war between Judge George B. Klnkead occurred earlier In the day and the men separated, osten. sibly for the purpose of arming them- selves. The Livingstone episode, how ever, prevented the meeting of the will known antagonists. Matthew Lane came here from Mount Sterling this morning and he and Breckinridge went In search of Owens' men who had denounced Colonel Breck. , inrldge during the recent campaign They met Judge Kinkead about I o'clock In front of the Breckinridge headquarters. Ho was halted by the two, and young Breckinridge said: "The election Is over now and I want to tell you that you are a d d liar and a coward." Judge Klnkead replied that he was not armed and that there are two of them, when Lane remarked forcibly: "And this Is Judge Klnkead! Well, I want to tell you that you are a dirty of a , and a liar. You said in one of your speeches that no decent woman would entertain Colonel Breckinridge, and my sister entertained him. I dare you to resent this Insult." The Judge remonstrated with them, and said that they had the advantage of him. lireckinrldge cut the Interview short by Raying that he would give him all the time he wanted to go and arm him self. Klnkhead walked oft toward his home and Breckinridge and Lane pro. ceeded to the Phoenix hotel. There they saw James Duane Livingstone, financial manager for J. Kennedy Tod, owner of the Kentucky Union railroad, and who has been a strong Owens man. Livingtone was leaning against the news and cigar stand, when Desha approached and asked for a package of cigarettes. Livingstone noticed Desha and extended his hand, saying: "Desha, the election is over. We should be friends." and who has been a strong Owens you are a one-horse scoundrel and will not take your hand. Livingstone asked him -what .'fte meant, and Desha explained that be thought him two-faced. Livingstone said he had been a constant Cwens man and had never professed anything else. Desha, said: "You are a damned liar." At this Livingstone struck him knocking his glasses off, and stagger ing him. . In an instant Desha flashed a large dirk knife and, aiming it at Livingstone's heart,, made a lunge for his old-time friend. Livingstone threw un his hand and the knlf pierced it, inflicting a serious wound. Livingstone then Kot out of the madman a way, A number of men rushed up and ended the fracas by urging young Breckin. ridee to put away his knife. The news of the attack spread rapidly and in ten minutes the hotel lobby was full o ex. cited people. Lane remained some time, declaring he had Insulted Klnkhead and daring him or any of his friends to resent it, His friends soon saw danger was im minent and took him away. The Owens' are bitter In their denun ciation of the action of young Breckin ridge and his accomplice and declare to-night they must not keep up the proceedings; that they are defeated and must take the result like men. To-morrow the district committee meets at Frankfort to officially declare the nominee, and it is expected there will be more trouble, since the Breck inridge forces were In close consultation here to-day, and the Owens men Believe they will try to work through some pro test whereby they can declare Breck inridge the nominee. Feeling is running high to-night and all sorts of threats can be heard on the streets by partisans of both sides. De sha is looked upon by Breckinridge partisans as a mere boy and several of them have declared their unwillingness to help him in any personal difficulty. James D. Livingstone formerly lived In New York and was a member of Tammany. LOCAL NEWS JOTTINGS. Schooner J. D. Dewell arrived In Phil adelphia yesterday from Boston.

Mr. Moran moved that the building committee be instructed to proceed ta the work outlined by the district meet ing in regard to the construction of grammar schools in the Webster and Strong districts, the enlargement of the Winchester school, the building of a kindergarten school on the DwighB school lot, and the sale of the Cedar, street and Dixwell avenue school prop erties. Ihis motion was carried. They were also instructed to purchase a lotii in the Webster , district that will ba suitable for the school. A lot will not have to be purchased In the Strong! district. ' Mr. Betts in speaking of plans for the) new buildings thought that it would ba a good Idea to select three New Haveni architects, who should be asked to pre pare plans; that these plans should all be purchased by the board, those being rejected being purchased for a price that would pay the architects for their time. He thought by this plan more satisfactory plans and specifications could be obtained. He stated that some of the board had looked over the Sacred Heart parochial school on Columbus avenue, and that it was the most sat isfactory school building in the city. There was some Informal talk about aJ new high school, but any lengthy con sideration of the matter was left until the full board shall assemble. Mr. Moran thought, however, that tha plans which had been prepared were for an ideal high school and he did noti feel prepared to say that New Haven! was ready to build an ideal high school. These plans contain all that the teach ers' ideas combined, with the elabora tion the architects could accomplish. These plans would build a building aa large as the Consolidated railroad of fices. Mr. Betts thought that the new high school ought to be built with the idea of eventually combining it with the Boardman manual training school. Mr. A vis advanced the idea of using the ol high school building as a central eighth grade school. There are twenty-four teachers now engaged In teaching these eighth grade pupils. If the plan wop adopted twelve could do It, thus saving $6,000. This would be the Interest on $150,000 at 4 per cent., which would fur nish a good share of the money for tha new school. The board then adjourned. Stole a Bicycle.
