The expected, with respect to Sir.
'William F.-Harrity, of Pennsylvania,
has happened. He is no longer a mem
ber of the National Democratic Com
mittee, -lie was formally deposed Sat
urday by Chairman Jones, of the na
tional committee, and Col. James M.
Guffey. of Pittsburg:, substituted as the
member for Pennsylvania.
It has-long: been a question whether
any power -other than the delegates to
a natiorial convention can change the
personnel of a national committee, but j
the question has never been aenniteiy
fettled, and a precedent is established
by the action of Chairman Jones. Sir.
Harrity was selected by his State dele
gation at Chicago, but it is well known
that he neyernililiated with the regu
lar organization after the adoption of
the Chicago platform.
On several occasions this action was
urged upon Chairman Jones, but never
until recently was the matter so per
sistently pressed, and the chairman
could no longer delay action. He reach
ed the conclusion resulting in Sir. Har
riry's deposition after a conference with
Senator Gorman. Representative SIc
Tiae. of Arlcansas. and other mem
bers of the national committee with
whom he was able to communicate.
During the week the Senator also had
a conference with State Chairman Gar
man, of Pennsylvania: ex-Lieut. Gov.
Chauncey F. Black. Col. Guffey, John
B. Larkin. and , other Pennsylvania
Domoc rat?, all of whom insisted that
the best interests, of the party demand- I
ed that Sir. Harrity be removed, and
Col, Guffey substituted.
As a result of this conference Chair- I
man Jones decided to act promptly,
and he is&ued a statement removing '
the gold Democrat and recognizing the
choice or the regular organization. No- 1
tice.s of this action hae been sent to ,
tbe members of Ik committee, ano ,
they have been each requested to rec-
ojrnize Col. Guffey as the member from
Pennsylvania. as he has been recog
nized by the chairman. From now on
the new member will be recognized as
Pennsylvania's representative on the
rommittce. and all communications
dealing with the business of the com
mittee will be sent to him instead of
The new member of the national
committee is not a stranger in "Wash
ington. He lias had the influence of
several of the leading men of the party
in his fight, prominent among the"m be
ing Senator "White, the recently elected
chairman of the Congressional
mittee. Senator "While and the other
leaders have Jong thought that some
one in thorough sympathy with the or
ganization should be put In Sir. Har
rity's place. The contest has extended
over a period of several months, and
silver Democrats will be pleased to
know that It has been settled in so sat-
i&iacuurj a. manner, inere win oe no j
meeting of the national committee un-

but the recognition of Col. Guffey by
his associates and tk-e ignoring of Sir.

And then the Sage-got down to busi

"Do you think tomorrow will be a

2ew England Cannot Compete With
Chatlotte, N. C, Jan. SO. Col. D.
A- Tompkins , the millionaire cotton
mill owner, who, perhaps is better in-
formed on matters pertaining to this
industry than any other Southern man,
said today in reference to the present
.New England situation:
"The New England mills are suffer
ing because they cannot sell their pro
ducts at a profitable price. The South
ern mills are underselling them, not
because they like to sell goods cheap,
but because, in order to sell at all,
they are obliged to cut New England
prices. This condition is not agreeable
to the mills of either section. It makes
the appearance that Southern competi
tion is becoming ruinous to the New
They and those of the South need
better markets. There are some con-
ditions here more favorable than in
Xew England for the production of
cheaper goods- Therefore if the com
petition is reduced to that point where
it is a question of survival the South
ern mills can probably hold, out about
as long as those In New England. Any
improved condition which puts the
manufacturers of cotton in the South
ern States, however, on a better basis
would also make a very satisfactory
condition in Xew England. Tire trou
ble is that the condition of cotton man
ufacture in all parts of the United
States is very much depressed."

The Victim of the White Lot Fight
The Polite Arrot Ills Alleged As-

Harry Ilickei-son. a steel'' ceiling
maker, twenty years old, whdse home
is at S'o. 120 IC street northwest, lies
at the Emergency Hospital hi a semi
conscious condition suffering from what
the physicians fear are internal inju
ries, which may result In his death.
Hlckerson is the young man-who was
taken from the "White Lot to -the hospi
tal while unconscious early yesterday
morning, haying been beaten and kick
ed, it is alleged, by two men, John E.
Shaw and William Weller, who are now
locked up at S'o. 1 station.
It developed yesterday that the two
men, who claimed to have heard Hick
erson's groans, and who went to the
Emergency Hospital for help, were Ed
ward SUnnis and a man named CHn
delst, who were really with Hlckerson
and his two assailants.
Each of the five young men attend
ed the performance at the Bijou The
ater on Saturday night, and after the
performance, it is said, went to Burke's
saloon at Thirteenth-and-a-half and
D streets, where they had drinks until
the bar closed at midnight. A bitter
quarrel arose over the merits of thd
wrestlers at the Bijou, and, acting up
on the suggestion of Weller. Shaw and
Hickerson agreed to go to the White ,.
iot and light, it is said that Shaw
struck the first blow, which felled
Hlckerson to the ground, whereupon
Shaw is said to have kicked his an
tagonist several times in the abdomen
and choked him. The part which Wel
ler took iii the affair is disputed, and
he is held as an accessory.
Upon learning of the case, Sergt
Sloore, of the First precinct." located !
Shaw in the Third precinct, and tele
phoned to Sergt. Keefe to arrest the
man on the charge of serious assault.
He was taken Into custody several
hours later, and gave the names of his
companions Slinnis and Weller who
It was" shown that Clindeist had
nothing to do with the affair, except
as a witness. He attempted to pre
vent Shaw from injuring Hlckerson,
and by so doing narrowly escaped se
rious injury himself.
Upon his Interference Shaw, it is
alleged, became further enraged, and,
drawing a knife made several desperate
attacks upon Clindeist. cutting his
clothing but doing no further injury.
Slinnis then went to the hospital and
Shaw and Weller made their escape
Slinnis was finally released from cus
Shaw and Weller were held on the
charge of suspicion, pending the result
of Hiekerson's injuries. The physicians

A Bicycle Novelty.
(From the Cleveland Plain Dealer.)
A Hamburg firm has just introduced a
bicycle novelty in. the shape or a music
)mx attachment, which finds its place in
front of the steering gear and is set in
"motion and kept going by the front wheel.
Besides the amusement the music box is
made to serve another end that is, the
the regulation of speed. The music sounds
melodious ouly while a speed or nine miles
Qr less per hour is maintained: as soon as
the speed is increased above that limit
the sounds from the music cease to be
agreeable to the ear and becomes inhar
monious. The music box indicates, heref ore, fairly
well when the exercise is becoming dan
gerous to the rider's health. The tin box
contaiuing the works Is about ten inches
in diameter and f6ur Inches deep. The
transmission is connected with the front
wheel so as to allow for vibration or. con
cussion. It can be started or stopped by
means of a little lever attached near-the
handle. The same 'transmission serves to
actuate a cyclometer which works inde
pendently of the music box and registers
