death of members, Including General
Rusk. A committee was appointed to
select officers. The reports of Corre
sponding Seoretary General Hioken
loper of Cincinnati, and Recording Seo
retary General Foroe of Ohio, were then
submitted. The reports show that the
Society is in a flourishing condition, but
the death-roll has commenced to out
heavily into the ranks.
This afternoon the veterans, headed
by the Second Infantry band, marched
to the resldenoe of General Dodge,
where a public reception was held. It
was attended by hundreds of people,
including the visiting members" of the
society and the leading society people
of the city. General Dodge was assisted
in receiving by Mrs. John A. Logan, the
general's three daughters and other

publio meeting was held at the Dohany
theater at whioh Mayor Clever, on be
half of the oity, and Governor Jaokson,
on behalf of the state, delivered ad
dresses of welcome to which General
Dodge responded. Governor Jaokson
spoke as follows:
1 ."Iowa bids welcome and good cheer
to all union soldiers, and especially
1 does she pay loving tribute to the Socie
ty of the Army of the Tennessee. The
burning passions of war have been util
ized by you to melt the armor of hate
and mould it Into loving friendly tokens
of peace, charity and love, bright as the
pages of your history, lasting as our
national existence. In no country but
our own, In no time until this genera
tion, in no fraternity but in the Society
of the Army of the Tennessee could
such a spectacle of patriotism crowned
by the laurel of national majesty be
presented. This fraternity must grow
dearer to you with each recurring year.
This society, this organization was con
ceived by comrade minds In the smoke
of battle. It was borne 'mid the roar
of the thundering guns of victory. The
brightness of the present is illumined
by your deeds of glory and those of
yon here to-night can live days and
weeks In the inspiring words of old com

"While many of the arts of war have
been obliterated where nature held full

still deeper the furrows In your faces,
bent the military bearing, silvered the

Be Wu Unable to Com Within Severn
Second, of His Record.
Baltimore, Oct. 8. The program of
the second day of the Pimllco Driving
club's fall meeting was good one, but
the performers did not carry it out well.
The free-for-all trot had three starters.
Ryland T., 2:07, who holds the record
for three fastest consecutive heats
ever trotted, and who, until recently,
held the gelding record, could not do
better than 2:13)4.
It Is whispered that Stewart and
Demarets had agreed that Lightning
should win the race, but they did not
let McCarthy, the driver of Austin, into
the deal and the latter proved a de
cided factor In the race. The judges
suspected that all was not as it should
be. They called off all bets in the fourth
and instructed Stewart to win, which
he did easily.
Iron Bar carried most of the money
in 2:35 trot, but he could not get bet
ter than third place, Wllbooka, a rank
outer, capturing the purse. Robert C.
was the pick of the talent In the 2:19
pace, and won as he pleased.
Is Deeply Sensible of the High Honor Con
ferred Upon Him.
Rhlnecllffe, N. T., Oct 3. The com
mittee appointed. by the chairman of
the republican state convention to offi
cially notify the candidates for gover
nor, lieutenant governor, and judge of
the court of appeals of their nomina
tion arrived here shortly after noon to
day. Upon the arrival of the train the
committee, accompanied by several
leading republicans, Including C. M.
Depew and General B. F. Tracy, was
driven in coaches to Mr. Morton's home
at Ellerslie.
Senator Charles D. Saxton and Judge
Albert Haight the nominees for lieu
tenant governor and judge of the court
of appeals, were with Mr. Morton when
he received his guests. Mr. Morton en
tertained the party at luncheon. Gen
eral Colli s, as chairman of the commit
tee; delivered the nominating address.
To Mr. Morton he said, it was fitting
that the most Illustrious citizen of the
state should be chosen as her executive,
but especially was this so when he
possessed in so high a degree those
virtues, atttalnments and characteris
tips which qualify him for high sta
tion. Addressing Mr. Saxton he said it was
a tribute to a good and faithful ser
vant whose ability, courage and integ
rity have been tested and that no class
of voters will support him with more
earnestness than his old army com
rades, who have had occasion to ap
plaud the same fearlessness in civil
life, -which he exhibited upon the field.
To Judge Haight, he said the nomi
nation for judge of the court of ap
peals was tendered to him with his
positive knowledge that his chartcer
was above reproach. Tou have each
of you, said General Collls, read the
declaration of principles unanimously
adopted by the convention. Tour an
tecedents warrant us in belie vein g that
It will receive your cordial approval and
loyal support.
Messrs. Morton, Saxton and Haight
responded briefly. Mr. Morton's reply
was as follows:
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Committee I thank you for the compli
mentary terms in which you have in
formed me of my nomination by the
republican convention recently assem
bled at Saratoga for the great office of
governor of the state of New Tork.
"I am deeply sensible of the high
honor which has been conferred upon
me by the convention, as I am of the
grave responsibility which will de
volve upon me if the action of the con
vention should be confirmed by my fel
low citizens in November.
"I had expected to paBS the later
years of my life in the desirable sta
tion of a private citizen, but the unex
pected call made upon me is rendered
all the more agreeable by the associa
tion with the distinguished gentlemen
now present whose names are united
with mine on the republican banner.
"In due time I shall address a for
mal commuication to your commit
tee signifying my acceptance of the
nomination." 1

One Oflloer, So a Witness Testified, De
manded Money from Her and Also Took
Her t'hlldien From Her The Policeman
Was rully Identified.
New York, Oct. 3. Chairman Lexow
was not present when the Lexow com
mittee was called to order to-day. Sen
ator O'Connor presided. The case of
the Russian woman, Mrs. Urchlttel,
who testified before the Lexow com
mittee that she was blackmailed by
two police detectives, came up to-day.
Mrs. Urchlttel told a pitiful story of
her 111 treatment by the detectives and
stated that her children were torn
away from her and her home broken up
without any cause.
Policeman Ambrose W. Hussey was
"Do you know a man named Joseph
Black?" asked Mr. Moss. "Yes, sir."
"Did you arrest Mrs. Urchlttel at any
time?" "Yes, sir."
Mr. Moss then read the extract from
the blotter. It stated that Annie
Rochetel was arrested on May 10, 1893,
on complaint of one Joseph Taketa by
Officer Hussey for keeping a disorderly
house. Rochetel was the name written
for Urchlttel. The witness then . told
the story of the arrest of the woman and
denied that he had taken any money
from her.
"Did you mention the name of any
officer as taking money from Mrs. Ur
chlttel a short time ago?"
"Yes, sir. I said that Mr. Black told
me that a police officer took the
"Who was the police officer?"
"His name Is Charles A. Place of the
Eleventh precinct"
Mr. Moss read two affidavits which
charged Place with blackmailing two
women, Mrs. Urchlttel and Mrs.
Schmayl. He also read a letter from
Policeman Hussey making an appoint
ment with Joseph Black, and offering
to pay expenses.
"How much money did you give him?"
"I gave him $2," replied Hussey.
Hussey told of a conversation he had
with Place in regard to Mrs. Urchit
tel. "Did you not charge Mr. Place with
taking the money from Mrs. Urchlttel?"
"I did, sir."
"Do you know that Place received the
money?" "Not of my knowledge."
The witness then stated that it was
on Black's statement that he had ar
rested Mrs. Urchlttel.
Policeman Charles A. Place next took
the stand.
"Did you ever see this woman be
fore?" pointing to Mrs. Urchlttel. f'No,
sir, I did not," replied Place.
"Did you ever go into No. 74 Orchard
street and demand $100 from her?"
"No, sir, I did not."
The witness told of a conversation he
had with Hussey.
"Hussey came to me one day," he
said, "and told me he was keeping me
out of a lot of trouble from the report
ers. He said that Black told him that
I had taken money from Mrs. Urchittel
of No. 74 Orchard street. 'You know,'
Hussey said, 'that she keeps a disorder
ly house.' I said that I knew nothing of
the kind, and said I never saw the
woman and knew nothing about her."
Place then emphatically denied hav
ing ever blackmailed anybody.
Mrs. Urchittel then took the stand.
She had made an affidavit giving sub
stantially the same story that she told
before the Lexow committee. Mr. Moss
read the affidavit, Mrs. Urchittel weep
ing bitterly all the time. . .
"Mrs. Urchlttel are you certain it
was Officer Hussey who arrested you
and kept you out in the streets all
night, taking $25 from you?"
"That is the man," sobbed Mrs. Ur
chittel pointing to Hussey who stood up
in court to be identified.
"Hussey and Hocksteln took my
money from me," declared Mrs. Ur
chlttel. "Did you see Hussey since?"
"Yes, sir. I met him in the street and
accused him of taking my money and
children from me. He said it was anoth
er man who took the money."
"Did you see anybody else?"
"Yes, sir. Two men came to me a lit
tle time ago and told me if I was to
make charges against Hussey and
Hocksteln I would get into trouble."
"Did she get her children back?" ask
ed Senator Bradley.
"No," said Mr. Moss, "but we expect
to return them to her."
Mrs. Urchlttel's children are In the
care of the Gerry society.
Isaac Lafkowitz of Delancy street
manufacturer of syrups, said he knew
Mrs. Urchittel and supplied her with
goods. He said that a Mr. Frank came
to him and asked him to buy her store
as she wanted to pay a fine of $50.
At this point Policeman Hussey took
the stand.
"Hussey," said Mr. Goff, "you have
threatened to shoot a man in this
court." "No, sir. I only told him he was
not fit to live."
"What do-you mean by telling a per
son who may be a witness here that he
is not fit to live?" "I mean that he is
low to' accuse an innocent man."
"Have you got a revolver with you?"
"No, sir."
"Now, will you swear that you didn't
tell this man that if he didn't stop the
proceedings you would put a bullet
through him?" "I will swear I did
not." , .
"Do you swear that you -did not
threaten to shoot Mr. Pfeffer here?" "I
swear again, I did not."
- "Did you speak to Mr. , Pfeffer
first?" - . ..
"X did, sir.-: I called him a dirty
loafer." .
Norberth Pfeffer then took the stand. '
He is the man whom Hussey was ques-:
tioned about - . . - . -v'
- ''Come, Pffigejv $u whst Ssisex said:
to you this morning in court," said Mr.
"He called me s d " said Mr.
Pfeffer, "and said I was the man that
caused the entire trouble end said he
would blow out my brains."
Martin D. Bradley next testified. He
testified that he heard Hussey tell
Pfeffer he would blow his brains out.
Samuel Marcus, a law clerk, also tes
tified. "I heard Hussey say to Pfeffer," said
he, "that he would put a bullet through
him and would blow his brains out."
H. H. Alexander, a stenographer, tes
tified that he overheard Hussey say to
Pfeffer "I will kill you." The witness
said another officer put his hand on
Hussey and they walked outside.
Officer Bernard - Dunn, who wus the
man who touched Hussey on the shoul
der, also testified.
"I heard Hussey talking In an excit
ed manner, but could not calch what he
was saying," said Dunn.
Hussey was again called to the stand.
"You have heard the testimony of
the four witnesses," said Mr. Goff,
"and what have you to say for your
self?" Hussey was as psle as death and
looked as If he was going to faint. He
took a drink of water, which nerved
"I did not say," said he. "that I
would kill him or put a bullet through
"Have those witnesses sworn to what
Is false?" "If I did use such language
I must have been crazy."
"Come, now. Did these witnesses
swear to what was false?" "They
must have sworn to what was false. I
have no reoollectlon of saying what they
testified to."
The witness here wiped his eyes with
his handkerchief and seemed as If he
would break down.
"Did Mr. Bradley swear to what was
false?" "He must have done so. I
have no recollection of saying that I
would put a bullet through Pfeffer."
"That will do, Hussey," said Mr.
Goff, and the policeman left the stand.
Mr. Moss here said he wanted to state
that in the opinion of counsel Officer
Place had nothing to do with Mrs.
Urchlttel and that he was the victim of
a foul plot. Pfeffer Is the man whom
Mr. Goff will call to tell about the
workings of the Essex Market police
court and the gang who. It Is said,
rule the roost there.
At this point a recess was taken.
After recess Annie-Trlebusch testified
that she was arrested by Policeman
Lynch and locked up because she would
not pay him $5 to allow her to keep
her news stand. Jacob Haferf.'whfl
keeps a saloon on East Eighty-Third
street testified that Policeman Jacob
Brunner told him that he, Hafen,
would have to pay $5 Jf he wanted, to
keep, open Sundays, tifen had paid
Brunner three times, or $16. He also
paid Excise Inspector Murphy $10 to
aid him to have the license transferred.
Adolph Forst, who kept a coffee saloon
on Clinton street, testified that he was
arrested for playing cards. He had
paid $15 twice for protection. Louis
Schuzz, a barber of Delancey street,
said Officer Hussey came Into his shop
one, day and said there must be no
gambling on the premises. "Did you
carry on gambling?"
"No, sir. A couple of my customers
used to play a friendly game. Hussey
said I should go and see Hochsteln."
Republicans Gain Many Tonnl,
Hartford, Oct. 8. Complete returns
from the 164 towns in the state that
elected town officers Monday have been
received by the Hartford Courant. The
republicans have gained twenty-two
towns over 1893 and the democrats have
lost eighteen, four towns of the republi
can gain ooming from the so-called
"divided" towns. A total of five more
towns vote no license this year than
last. The women's vote has fallen off
700, from about 8,700 to 8,000.
Courts Hay Straight, n Out Florida's State
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 3. The state
and county election held yesterday re
sulted In a muddle and tangle which it
will probably take the courts' to
straighten out. The fight in this city is
between two factions of the democratic
party and bids fair to be a close cne.
Early in, the morning in consequence of
fraud having been threatened by the
faction holding the inspector appoint
ing power, three deputy sheriffs walked
into each polling place and signified
their intention of remaining. The in
spectors all over the city thereupon
closed the voting booths, awaiting in
structions from the leaders.
A compromise was effected In several
of the outlying wards in a short time
and voting was resumed, but In the
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth, three of the
most populous wards in the city, not a
vote was cast, owing to a failure to
agree upon any arrangement .In con
sequence of this tangle, out of a quali
fied vote of 5,000 In Duval county only
a small proportion was polled.
Governor Mitchell on Monday-ordered
Adjutant General Houston to this
city and all day the state troops were
held under arms at their quarters, but
were not needed.
The main issues of the factional fight
were a railroad commission and the al
leged attempt of railroad corporations
to capture the next legislature and
nowhere has the bitterness grown to
such Intensity as in Duval county.
Throughout the state, Liddon, for su
preme court justice, has met with prao
tically no opposition. The populists
cast a very small vote for their ticket.
Pensacola, Oct. 3. Three state sena
tors were elected yesterday to fill un
expired terms. Sixteen senators were
elected who will hold over and have
a voice in selecting Senator Wilkinson,
Call's successor in 1897.' Special Inter
est centered in the effort to defeat the
regular democratic nominees In five
districts who were known to be ag
gressively opposed to Call. Senator
Call openly urged opposition to regular
nominees in these districts. :-.?.?..
Returns from the city and nine coun
try : precincts give the regular demo
cratic ticket about eight hundred major
ity. -The precincts to Be n.earj from will
increase this sate.
Senatorial, IteoreaenlnUve and Justice of
the lVare Conventions Hplrtteil Conte.ni
for the I'lsoee on the Representative
There was a spirited and at times
exciting contest at Turn hall last even
ing, where the democratic convention
to nominate candidates for representa
tives was In session. The contest was
on from start o finish and It was not
until the last vote had been counted on
eoch ballot that the nom ivics were
finally selected. After the smoke had
cleared away It was ascertained that
Attorneys David T. McNamara and
John C Gallagher had succeeded In car
rying off the plums after a hard fight
Eighty, delegates were present and
they unanimously chose Attorney L. E.
Jacobs for chairman and H. A. Snyder
of the Fifteenth ward secretary on mo
tion of Joseph E. Taylor. After Chair
man Jacobs had made a speech, during
which he eulogized the democratic
party and exhorted the delegates to se
lect the best men possible for repre
sentatives, the folio win? cemmittee on
credentials was appointed: Albert S.
Wheeler, Dr. F. O. White, John J. Cler
kln, Walter C. Wells, F. A. Maloney,
John W. Hutt, M. E. Tracey, Addison
F. Hunle, John H. Connor, Edward
Welch, R. B. Farren and William Bris
tol. ' An attempt was then made to appoint
tellers, and half a dozen or more names
were mentioned, but all declined ex
cept Samuel Barnes and A. B. Farren.
Nominations were next called for rep
resentatives and John W. Hutt pre
sented the name of John C. Gallagher,
while a like service was performed for
David C. McNamara by A. F. Hunle.
There were no other nominations for
first place on the ticket and a ballot
was ordered. It being the sense of the
convention that a viva voce vote should
be taken.
As there were 80 delegates present 41
votes were necessary to a choice. Each
delegate voted for his choice as the roll
was called, and when the votes had
been counted it was found that Mr.
McNamara had received 42 votes and
Mr. Gallagher 38. A motion was made
to make the nomination of Mr. McNa
mara unanimous, but before It could be
put Samuel Barnes had stepped to the
edge of the stage Mid" said f '"I have no
personal objection jo the nomination of
Mr. McNamara, but the citizens of New
Haven will have, and "
But be was allowed to go no further.
Immediately John J. Clerkirt jumped to
hie feet and raised" the point of order
that Mr. Barnes was nojt speaking on
the motion. Chairman Jacobs decided
that the point of order was well taken,
and Mr. Barnes was obliged to subside,
after which the motion to make Mr.
McNamara's nomination unanimous
was put, but did not prevail, as there
were several audible noea
For second place on the ticket Joseph
0."Taylor placed John C. Gallagher In
nomination. Jacob Hunle objected to
sending two lawyers to the general aB-
sembly, claiming that the business men
should be represented. He therefore
nominated Walter Leigh. John Ruff
was placed in nomination by Michael F.
Griffin, while a like service was per
formed for Edwin C. Cooper by John J.
Clerkln. Aa there were no other candi
dates a ballot was taken, resulting In
Gallagher receiving 50 votes, Leigh 2,
Ruff 27 and Cooper 1. After the nomi
nation of Mr. Gallagher had been made
unanimous the convention adjourned
and the delegates repaired to the cor
ners, where they discussed the situation
for some time.
The democratic senatorial convention
was held in Veru hall last evening and
was an exceedingly brief affair. Only
three of the delegates were absent and
the business of the convention went
along BWtmmlngly, the entire session
only lasting about ten minutes. Judge
David Callahan was unanimously nomi
nated for state senator from the Eighth
district and John P. Carney was unani
mously chosen a member of the demo
cratic state central committee from ths
same district. In fact there was a vast
deal of unanimity prevalent every
where. Promptly at 8 o'clock Chairman
Shannon of the town committee called
the convention to order and Prosecut
ing Agent Daniel A. McWilllams was
unanimously chosen chairman and
Deputy Registrar Albert Wldmann sec
retary. The calling of the roll of dele
gates was, on motion, dispensed with,
and Chairman McWilllams called for
nominations for senator.
Hardly had the Invitation been ex
tended when Attorney Charles S. Ham
ilton, that erstwhile republican, jumped
to his feet and in one of his charac
teristic speeches, during the course of
which he arraigned the republican par
ty and made one or more of his favorite
quotations, placed in nomination David
Callahan, the present assistant judge
of the city court The nomination was
promptly seconded by Attorney George
R. Cooley, and as there, were no other
names presented, the nomination of Mr.
Callahan was, on motion, made unani
mous. There was some little applause,
but the floor and walls of the building
are still standing.
General Registrar John P. Carney
was next placed in nomination for mem
ber of the democratic state central com
mittee from this district The nomina
tion was promptly seconded and he was
unanimously chosen, after which the
convention adjourned sine die.
' There waB hardly a handful of dele
gates to this convention present last
evening, but notwithstanding this fact,
the business was transacted just the
same as though all had been present.
After the convention had been called to
order , by .Chairman Shannon at 8:30
o'clock, Attorney Charles Kleiner was
ielected. fihaionani ftft4 Attajaex JSC. B
Psrdee secretury. Several names were
presented for the latter office, but all
declined until the name of Mr. Pardee
was reached and he immediately took
the chair.
A motion was then made to have the
chairman of the convention appoint a
committee of five to bring In a list
of twenty-eight nominees for Justices of
the peace. This wns amended so as
to make the committee be composed of
the chulrmen of the several ward dele
gations and the amendment was car
ried on a division of the house by a
vote of 14 to 8. The ohalrmeti of the
several ward delegations then retired
and after a short Interim returned with
the following list, which was ratified
by the convention:

Admirers at Kelson roreed to Admit Thnt

Portland, Me. Oct. 3,-A.t Mlgby parts
this afternoon all admirers of Nelson
were forced to admit that he. Is no
nmteh for Direct urn, the contest set
tling all doubts as to their relative su
periority. The wmther waa cold and
cloudy, making the attendance rather
small for so great a race. There were
less than 3.000 people at the park.
Among those present were Hon. Thomas
li. Rued, who occupied a private box.
At a little after 2 o'clock the two.
great stallions came on the track to
gether. Both hud been warming uy
around the track at Intervals slnca
noon. When Nelson's blanket was re
moved and he appeared on the track
there was great applause from the
spectators, who wanted v tne jam,
ous horse do his best. Directum wa (
prime condition and ready for aneat
things on a beautiful condition.
Directum was driven by Hickok and;
Horace Nelson held the reins over hla
horse. Nelson drew the pole and after
scoring twice got the word on the third
trial. In spite of the breeze the race
was fast from the very first Nelson
led at the first quarter in 31V4. ajao at N
the half mile In 1:03 and at the three
quarters in 1:35, with Directum tight
at his wheel all the way. Then, the lit
tle black stallion began to creep up
and down the homestretch gained fast
er and faster, passing under the wire a
length ahead of Nelson In 8:10. Thla
was the result looked for. It being con
ceded that Directum would ain on tha
The second was a slower heat, bud
rather better than the first, as a spec
tacle. Nelson olosed up at the firs!
quarter, and headed Directum at the
second quarter. From there to the home
stretch the two handsome horses came
around as if they were harnessed
abreast, so near even were they. Near
the wire Directum shot ahead and won
the heat by half a length in 2:13.
By this time any lingering hope that
Nelson could win the race had fled.
It was too evident that Directum waa
not even hurrying, and that he was
completely outclassing his opponent.
Excuses were made fox Nelson's eleven
years and remark that Directum
youth was telling.
In the third heat Directum was allcw
ed to show what he could do. Nelsdii
was at his heels the first half of the heat
but then Directum drew a length
ahead. At the third quarter Direotum
led by four lengths, and when the wire
was reached Nelson was so far be
hind that his driver had slowed him
down and trotted him on a mere ambler,
thoroughly beaten.
When Dlrectum's time for this lasi
heat was announced as 2:08H there waa
great cheering, for it was the most
wonderful race ever seen in thla part of
the country, breaking all records for
stallion trotting in a race.
