New Okleans, Feb. 10. An important
move has been miulo in the Democratic
party of this state with a view of re
uniting the party which split on the lot
tery question. The morning papers pub
lish a letter from S. D. McEnery, candi
date for governor on the regular or
lottery Democratic party, addressed to
the chairman of the Democratic execu
tive committee, in which ho urges that
the two tickets be withdrawn and an
other nominating convention bo held to
place a ticket before the people which
will command the undivided support of
the party. He stays: "As the condition
of the party is critical and it is abso
lutely essential that the party be united,
I think that at this tinio wo ought to
forego any advantages wo claim as the
regular organization and afford those
who loft the party an opportunity to re
unite with the party. "
Accordingly Chairman Crandell of
straight or lottery Democratic ex
ecutive committee addressed a let
ter to E. B. Kruttsohnitt as chair
man of the "Foster" or "anti-lottery"
Democratic executive committee, mak
ing a strong plea in behalf of
harmony in the party as follows:
In the interest of the integ
rity and harmony of tho Democratic
party, and to avoid tho possibility of tho
election of a Republican governor of the
shite of Louisiana and the consequent
loss of Louisiana's electoral vote to tho
national Democratic party in November,
1802, we oiler for consideration the fol
lowing propositions: First, that the
nominees upon the two tickets known as
McEnery ticket and Foster ticket be
withdrawn. Second, that the two state
central committees, known in McEnery
state central committee and Foster state
central committee, join in a call for a
new primary election for delegates to bo
held in New Orleans not later than
March 15. ' ,
Mr. Kruttschnitt returned tho letter to
Mr. Crandell, explaining that he did not
hold the oflice of "chairman of the
Foster executive committee," nor did ho
know of any one holding an ollico whoso
incumbent bears the above title. In
other words he claims his committee to
bo tho straight. Democratic executive
committee. He believes the anti-lottery
faction or Fosterites will refuse to unite.
Washington, Feb. 10. Great anxiety
is felt among both Democrats and Re
publicans over tho political situation in
Louisiana. Governor McEnery's propo
sition for both wings of tho party to
unite and placo a new ticket in the field
with a basis of harmonious action is
favorably commented upon by Demo
crats here and the reply of tho Fostor
jwoplo is anxiously awaited. It is felt
that this generous action on tho part of
McEnery will place the responsibility on
Foster and his followers should they
decline, and defeat of tho party follow.

Ni:w YoisK, Feb. 10. Senator Hill is
badly scared over the revolt now in
progress throughout the state against
his snap-convention scheme, lie hur
ried down to the city from Albany on
Saturday night and spent Sunday at the
Hotel Nonnandio. He came down to do
his own scouting, and ascertain how the
skirmish lines were getting on.
Tho uprising in this city has
made him very nervous; even
his friends are surprised at the
manner in which ho is behaving.
If his subordinates hero told him the
truth ho went back to Albany that night
burdened with the information that his
snap-convention is spreading with won
derful rapidity, and that nest Thursday
night's mass-meeting at Cooper institute
will issue a protest against his schemed
that will hae a wide effect throughout
Mr. Hill saw very few people Sunday.
He dined with General Earlo and spent
the whole day indoors. Ho returned to
this city and will attend tho Tilden din
ner in Brooklyn. The subpoena served
on him in tho Duchccs county case is re
turnable in Judge Cullen's court in
Brooklyn on Feb. 11, the day of the anti
snap convention mass-meeting. Whether
tho senator will appear in court or
whether he will accept Colonel Bliss' in
vitation to make a deposition is not yet
known. Speaking ot the anti-snap coii'
veutiou movement he said that the peo
pie who are interested in it were always
opposed to linn.
Colonel Robert G. Monroo, who is a
member of Governor Flower's staff,
and who is prominent in tho movement
airainst tho Februarv convention, re
turned from Washington, where he has
been on business. While thoro ho had
many talks with representatives of tho
southern and western btates, including
some of the leading supporters of Mr.
Crisp in the recent sieakership contest.
"I found very general sympathy with
tho anti-February convention move
ment in this state, " said Colonel Mon
roe. "There was no talk among those
I saw about tho signers to the call for
the mass-meeting being 'occasional' or
'conditional' Democrats. Thoy recog
nized upon the roll the names of many
men with whom thoy have been associ
ated in tho past campaigns. They said
that the Hill boom bad subsided and
that more consideration was given now
to other names. Much surprise was ex
pressed that astute a politician as Mr.
Hill had been guilty of such a blunder
in misjudging the real sentiment of his
own state, "
Colonel Monroe was formerly chair
man of tho executive committee of tho
National association of Democratic
clubs, and while in Washington ho had
a conference with Congressman Wilson
of West Virginia, tho present chairman.
Mr, Monroo says that club organization
will be a valuable adjunct of tho party
Mr. Monroo recalled that in 1880 Tam
many sent a contesting delegation to the
Cincinnati convention and that half of it
was" seated. Iljirs friends do not like
