New,Y6rkers Feasting on Oysters Taken Frotn Bottom of the Roma. New Yorkr Oct. 24. The resi dents of the neighborhood of Twen tysixth Street and Second Avenue, Borough of Brooklyn, are feasting on Southern oysters which came from Texas on the Bottom of the steamship Roma. Their existence was nnknown until she was put in to dry dock for survey last Satur day, previous to being overhauled by the Ross Iron Works. Then it is claimed several hundred bush els of oysters were found to have fastened themselves on the bottom of the steamship from the keel to the water mark, at least 1000 being of mature size and edible, as the men about the dock found to their v satisfaction. Yesterday the bottom of the dry deck was strewn with oyster shells and a number of res taurant keepers of the neigborhood took away baskets full of them. Theodore Krombach of the Yacht . Hotel had oyster supper for his friends to-night. News. The Watterson .Boom,. Atlanta Journal. It jias been announced by several Kentucky newspapers that Mr. Henry Watterson is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Gov ernor of Kentucky. , The famous editor declines to either affirm or deny the report and the Louisville Courier-Journal, whose editorial chair he fills so ably, is silent on the subject. The inference is that Mr. Watterson has set hnigmg eyes on the execu tive ofiice of his adopted State. This is an interesting probability. Mr. Watterson is a uational rath er than a State celebrity. He has been a political leader of large in fluence aud wide range since 1876, when he becameconspicuous by his advocacy of the nomination aud election of Samuel S. Tilden to the Presidency, and later by his fierce denunciation of the outrage which deprived that great man of the of fice to which he was elected. Mr. Tilden esteemed Watterson very highly and few men were ad mitted so fully to the confidence of the Sage of Gramercy Park. lu every Democratic National Conven tion from that of 1876 to that of 1892 Henry Watterson figured more or less potently. He is cred ited with having written more than one of the national platforms of his party and he certainly is main ly responsible for the amendment .of the platform of 188S and that of the platform of 1892 which made their declarations for tariff reduc tion clearer and more emphatic than they were in the original draft. In 1896 Mr. Watterson was one of the many Democrats who bolted the nomination of William J. Bryan on account of the free silver issne, but in 1900 he returned to thereg ,nlar Democratic fold and support ed Bryan vigorously. Even his enemies admit that he is a man of great force: His pow er both as a writer and an orator has been demostrated often. His ripening years have made Mr. Watterson calmer in council and less reckless in leaping to po sitions, but have not deprived him ofany degree of that power of per suasive pleading or heavy hitting that won his first fame. Watterson as a candidate for -Goveruoriu a doubtful State would be v.ery interesting; Waiterson as Governor would be a problem, biit a very hopeful one. e ; NEW YORK ELECTION.
