"Tim" Woodruff Again Selected for
Second Place by the Republicans
oI the Empire State.
| Ex-Governor Black and His Paction
in Line?-Depew Makes a
Great Address. ?
SARATOGA. N. Y., Sept. 5.?The
state Republican convention in session
here to-day, nominated the following'
For Governor?B. B. Odell. Jr., of Orangev/:??^
For Lieutenant Governor?Timothy L.
"WoodrufT, of Kings.
For Secretary of State-^John T. McDonough,
of Albany.
For Comptroller?"William J.Morgan,
of Erie. *
For State Treasurer?John P. Jaeckel,
ot Cayuga.
For Attorn-iy General?John C. Davies.
of Oneida.
For State Engineer?Edward A. Bond,
of Jefferson.
Perhaps the most Interesting feature
of the conventlon:was the.fact that the
speech nominating Benjamin. B. Odell
for governor was made by Former (governor
Frank S. Black, who had been
outside the organlzatiim breastworks
since Theodore Roosevelt defeated him
two years ugo,' when, he desired a renomlnatlon.
For a long time Mr. Black
and his close friends;. Abraham Gruber
j and Former District Attorney W. M. IC
\ Olcott. of New. York, were .very bitter
and at the party primaries a week or so
ago, Mr. Grub?r was obliged to fight to
maintain his leadership or the twenty-,
first assembly district, New York City,
against an opponent who was believed
to have Senator Piatt's sympathy.
Mr. Gruber Won.
Mr. Gruber won, and since that time
efforts have been made by friends of
both sides to bring about a reconciliation
between the former governor and
his friends and Senator Piatt, with the
result that Mr. Black to-day made the
principal nominating Bpaech. Mr. Black
; Bald the Issues now before the American
people were discussed and settled

1896. They were then met and understood,

trying to mak? them float. That will

Compromise, or Middle Courso, Ernected?Russia's
Proposal Like
ly to be Spurned. .
WASHINGTON, D. C., Sept. 5.?
Within- the last twenty-four hours the
United States government has received
from Its representatives at foreign
capitals, much material Information In
regard to the attitude o( the powers on'
the Russian proposal to evacuate Pekln.
These give the general nature of
the responses made to Russia by certain
of the powers. It Is stated authoritatively
that If there was at any time,
a prospect of a serious. International
clash, this has been very largely, if not
entirely, removed by the harmonious
character of the communications the
several governments are making. The
exact nature of the response Is not
macie puonc ay me aiaie aeparimem,
for thWeareyet sojnc replies-to be transmitted
and until all of them are made,
the negotiations are .considered In such
an incomplete form that they will not
bp made public. It Is said, however,
that the answers go much beyond the
tentative character .of those heretofore
referred to, and are of.a conclusive nature,
so far as showing the purposes of
the governments, although they may
not be regarded as conclusive In accepting
or rejecting the particular proposition
advanced by Russia.
The Responses Long.
-The responses are understood to be
rather long and somewhat argumentative,
similar In this respect to the,
American response. This very fact Is a
cause for congratulation among , ofll
date, as they point out that ,there Is no
disposition to treat the proposal with
terseness or In any manner to give
offense, but rather to bring the powers
together on a common basis. On the
whole the general tendency of the responses
Is such as to give entire satisfaction
here as to the course of .the negotiations.
The satisfactory progress of the negotiations
along these lines has hail the
effect of directing attention to the personality
of the envoys who probably .
Will represent .the powers and .China in
the Anal settlement. 'The Impression
prevails here that.Mr. Conger is eminently
fitted for such a task on the
part of the United States, supposing
that each of the powers Interested In
the Chinese problem Is to have a separate
and Individual representative.
Rockhill an Alternate.
Mr. Rockhlll's name is mentioned as
as alternate, In case Mr. Conger does
not care to remain in Pekln, or to participate
In the settlement. These suggestions..
however, are all speculative,
for up to this time the state d<<)artment
lias not conferred the necessary special
powers upon any person to represent
the government In the final negotiations.
If the present state of affairs In China
Is protracted until the arrival there of
Field Marshal Count Waldersee, which
should occur In about ten flays, or a
fortnight, It is not to be doubted that
the government of Germany will endeavor
to have all the negotiations with
tne tninese government conducted
through that official as a representative
not of Germany alone, but of all the
powers. It is gathered that strong arguments
will be advanced to support
the advisability of combined action
through one agency In this manner as
the best means of securing a speedy
and generally satisfactory termination
Of the Chinese trouble. In fact It will
be urged that these Is little hope for an
early adjustment of the difficulties between
the powers and China If each of
the powers Is to lay down an Independent
proposition, the culminatlvc effect
by which, particularly In the case of
money or territorial Indemnities, might
be absolutely crushing to the Chinese
Military Situation Unchanged.
If there is any cHange in the military
situation since General Chaffee's dls
patch supposed to be of the 30th ultimo,
no word of it has reached "Washington.
It Is understood that disturbances and
outrages upon missionaries continue In
some of the districts outside of Pekln.
It Is believed here, possibly because of
these reports, thnt the foreign ministers
in Pekln probably will enter an
earnest objection to any withdrawal of
troops, Jf their respective governments
flelay action upon tho Russian proposition,
until they have had a chance to
express their views.
The German foreign ofllco appears to
be active In furthering tho negotiations
lind quite a number of messages have
passed between Washington and Berlin.
Those persons most likely to have a
correct understanding of Germany's
attitude look for tho suggestion of a
compromise, or middle course, which
will be neither nn acceptance nor n rejection
of the Russian proposals, but
will bo such a Bfttlsfactory mlddlo
ground that nil the powers, including
ttUBsIn, can. agree to. It.
Limit bo Fixed.
For Instance, It Is suggested that Germany
with propriety might suggest
Ihut a certain limit be fixed on tho extent
of the military detachments to bo
left at Pekln, with an understanding
that each mnull detachment confine Itself
to quarters so long as peaco and
lulet prevails in Pekln, but bo ready to
' i.{::
act; In ease of further Chinese depredations
Diplomatic officials say that
some such compromise Is about the
only "way of avpldlng an impasse, and
that the best resources of diplomacy
are now being used to secure ^Ws middip
ground on which all the powers can
reconcile their several policies. In another
diplomatic quarter, the strong
belief Is expressed- that the requisite
Compromise %vtll be found by China's
re-establishing a government and naming
peace commissioners. Official intimations
have reached /Washington
that steps are now being taken towards
the appointment of such aj peace commission,
Including LI Hung Chang, the
viceroys of Nankin and Wu Chlng, and
Prince ChlnK. thouKh renorts havo also
named Yung ku' and Hsl' Tung In
place of the two Pacific viceroys. But
whole there is doubt aa to the personnel
of the commission, It Is quite generally
accepted among officials ' that
some such move on the part of China
has matured and, will take form In
Washington yery'ioon.
Status Would bo-Changed.
In that event,-it Is beltovefl by diplomatic
officials that the entire status of
the negotiations between; the : powers
niJght bo changed and that Kussli}. no
longer would feel Impelled to Insist
upon the withdrawal of her minister
and troops from Pcltln, as all these
ministers would bo subject for the
commission itself; to deal with. It Is.
pointed out also, that In the six days
sjnee the Russlan-Amerlenn notes
>>.ere given to the world, the sentiment
has been growing steadily In favor of
continuing the presence of troops at
In view of the declarations made In
the American reply to Russia, seme
question has arisen as to the course
open to this country in case ofja compromise
or change of the present diplomatic
status. It Is said that the attitude
of the United States is particularly
favorabh for adapting Itself to any
change in conditions., Only In the one
contingency of Russia's withdrawing
her minister and troops has this government
given the positive declaration
that American troops alpo will be withdrawn.
But on the many other conditions
which may arise! either through
counter propositions .from the . powers
or by a modification of Russia's original
purpose, the United States has left Its
course open for future determination.

LONDON, Sept. 6.-4 a. m.?Sir Alfred.
Gaselee's dispatch, which shows
that the situation In Pekln was unchanged
on August 29, is the only Chinese
news this morning. The cancellation
of the order holding' back the
Fourth' Indian brigade' Is regardud - as
important. It show* thai whatever the
outcome of the Rusifon policy, the
British government is determined to
have sufficient troops on the spot adequately
to protect British interests.
Considerable significance Is attached
to the statement by the Journal Do St.
Petersburg as possibly Indicating a
modification of the Russian policy. This
paper 1h the organ of the Russlun foreign
ofilce; its editor, being a councillor
of state. It is noted that, while the
Journal De St. Petersburg anndunccs
Russia's determination to maintain the
solidity of the powers, It only mentions
the withdrawal of the ministers, and
not of the troops to Tien Tain. It Is
believed that the powers might agree
to such a modification of the original
Russian proposition.
The Vienna correspondent of the
times, discussing inc siiuuuon, uociares
that Japan 1ms a strong disposition to
act In harmony with the United States
in the Chinese question. The Dally

"The Russian war office has made

only .'two speeches during the day, the
first at Morgan's Grove, near Shepherdstown,
and the second at Keyser.
At both places the crowds greeted the
national candidate with enthusiasm,
and both speeches were vigorously applauded
as point after point was made.!
There were large audiences at both
meetings, but that of the Grove was exceptional
in size.

General St. Clair introduced Mr. Bryan.
As a text for the ilrst part of his

citizens of whatever station in life.
"I am afraid," he began, "that I cannot

as General St. Clair thinks I am, but
whatever I am, I owe to the support
which I have received from the great
mass of the people' who hear without
reproach the name of the common people."
Continuing in the same line, he said:
"They have given to me whatever prom

indebted to them for uil that I hope
for in politics. But if I can do nothing
