NEW YORK Oct 11 The fusion cam
paigners held a meeting in the Murraj
1 1111 Liceum tonight under the au
spices of the Citizens Union the features
of which was an Impassioned outburst b
Justice Jerome against the nomination of
Henr W Ungcr as Tammany s candi
date for district attorney
Justice Jerome charsed that he knew
of his own certain knowledge that Frank
Farrell the head of the gamblers
dlcate alone had forced Ungers nomina
tion Mr Jerome said that he could not
at this time give his aulhorlts for the
statement but that It was true In part
lie said
If ever there was a position of brazen
audacity of what are jou going to do
about if It Is found in Tammanss nom
inations on the counts ticket The took
for District Attorney the man who has
been the attornes for tho man Blssert
Henry W Unger They took him In
preference to a man who had fairly earn
ed the dignity of the nomination They
took him in preference to James Os
borne a Tammany Hall man for jears
and nn honored practloncr of the bar
In this State when Mr Unger was not
known They put aside Mr Osborne who
prosecuted this fellow Blssert who
brought about his conviction who had
every claim bj reason of services and by
reason of sterling honesty and merit
They nominated a man who stood for the
Blssert ssstem They challerge the issue
Well we are ready to meet it I state
it now I shall not give an reasons why
I state it I Khali ask sou to believe thai
I would not state it unless I had ground
to believe so But I tell sou that the
nomination of the Tammany Hall candi
date for district attorney was dictated by
Frank Farrell Yes Frank Farrell the
head of the gambling combine In this city
and I ask jou to take my word for It
Unger is and long has been a close
friend of Carroll Crokers deputy After
his common school course he spent a
few months as he himself expresses It
In the commercial course of the City
College becoming a stenographer In a
Iawoffice and then a stenographer In the
corporation counsels office
Studs ing law by himself he was ad
mitted to the bar in 1SS1 upon certificate
he represents some labor organizations
In their strikes and was taken Into the
the district attorneys office by De Lancey
Nlcoll and given opportunity to resign by
Eugene A Fhilbin the present district
attorney After that he took up profes
sionally the causes of the police officers
whom the district attorne and the Com
mittee of Fifteen found reason to take
action against for being Implicated in the
vice protection
Mr Philbln vras asked todas -whether It
properly represented his action In regard
to Unger -to say that he gave him an op
portunity to resigns Jt does replied
the district attorney Whs Some
persons say he was kicked out of our
office That replied Mr Fhilbin is
ihe same thing Then he went on In his
direct way I would regard Colonel
Gardiners nomination as preferable to
Mr Ungers I think It would be likely
to do less harm to the cause of decencv
The nominations according to the talk
of the politicians today showed two
things clearly first that Croker has set
out to destroy the Greater New York
Democracy which threatens his fcen
dancy both in city and State politics
and second that John F Carroll Timo
thy D Sullivan and the other backers
of Devery coastitute the controlling in
fluence in the organization after Croker
Frank J Goodwin was nominated for
Register and Charles W Das ton for Su
preme Court Justice It was said solely
for the purpose of making Inroads on the
Greater New York Democracy
Today was the first da of registration
In this cits and as usual both tides pro
fess satisfaction with the figures and base
on them prediction of victory
The police were very slow In -setting In
the figures of the registration At 1
oclock this morning onls five districts of
New York Counts and two of Kings had
been reported
The total first day registration In Man
hattan in UA7 the last municipal cam
paign was 111M7 The registration is
holding well up to this In New York Coun
ty and In fact is exceeding that of four
3 ears ago apparently although It is diffi
cult to draw an- conclusion from such a
small number of districts
In Kings Counts the registration Is ap
parently falling off
The da was a quiet one more so than
usual and there were no fights Super
intendent McCtillagh had 5u4 deputies on
duty and thes were buss- all das chal
lenging such as have no right to vote
Several gangs of repeaters were broken
up and driven back to the lodging houses
One gang In the Eighth Assembls district
had a fight all to Itself and the members
went away without trying to register
Three hundred men were challenge In
the Ninth Assembly district alone This

William McAleer 6f Phil
adelphia Robert E Wright of Allen
town and other prominent leaders joined
with State Chairman Casey In striking
from the rolls the names of the Rsan
Donrelly members of the State Commit
tee from Philadelphia
This action was followed by the formal
withdrawal of A J Palm of Crawford
Counts as the candidate for State Treas
urer and the substitution of the name
of E A Coras the Union partys candi
date These changes were not accom
plished without consideiable speech-making
on the part of harmony members of
tho State Committee Neither Rjan nor
Donnelly who have so long run the af
fairs of the parts In Philadelphia was
present They evldentls preferred to be
at a safe distance from the storm cen
tre
There was a fair turnout of the mem
bers of the State Committee but quite a
number of the counties were not repre
sented including Adams Bradford Jam
eron Clarion Fulton Jefferson Lebanon
Ls coming Pike Potter Somerset Sus
quehanna Tioga and Washington Mr
Palm the resigned candidate was pres
ent and heard compllmentars speeches
about his patriotic action for the good of
the party When it came to substituting
Cora- for Palm fifts nine votes were cast
for Corjy and two for Palm Wsoming
and Erie
There is a very general sentiment
among members of the committee In
favor of fusion with the Independent Re
publicans which was scaled by the action
of the State Committee this afternoon
It ls the purpose of the Demo
crats through this alliance with the Re
publican Insurgents to give the Union
parts sufficient strength at the polls In
November to entitle the new parts to all
the privileges of a full fledged organiza
tion next J ear when more Important of
fices will be filled In brief the fusionlsts
hope to poll a vote large enough to en
title them to call a convention as the
Union party and nominate candidates bs
certificate so as to get a regular place on
the eft clal ballot
While the more enthusiastic members of
the new committee believe there ls a fair
chance of electing their candidates this
year thes are looking ahead with more
confidence to the campaign when a Gov
ernor and other State officers will be
elected The Executive Committee held a
meeting at the headquarters before the
sessions of the State Central Committee
and considered the trouble of the Dau
phin Counts Democracy
Mas or John A Frltchey of this city is
the recognized head of the Dauphin or
ganization and recenly resigned under a
new parts rule making Federal officials In
eligible to act as county chairman Mas
or Fritches is a member of the United
States Pension Board He circumvented
his enemies however by putting at the
head of the committee his chief lieuten
ant Col W S Thomas of this cits The
faction opposed to Frltchey Immediately
carried their grievance to the State com
mittee
Ex State Chairman James A Stranahan
appeared in behalf of those who are op
posed to the Dauphin County rules which
He contended were contrary to the rules
of the Democratic State organization
This controversy occupied the attention of
the Executive Committee for several
hours and It was flnalls ordered that the
rules should be revised In accordance with
the rules of the State organization State
Chairman Creasy gave the committee to
understand that some means mut be de
vised to raise money for the campaign
The business of the State committee
was rushed through In short order Mr
Palms letter of withdrawal was read
hf connection with his notice to the Sec
retars of the Commonwealth and when
It was about to be cted on Robert E
Wright of Allentown got the floor and
highly praised the retiring candidate for
his fearless and patriotic course There
was considerable applauEe at the men
tion of Palm s name There was as much
interest in the ejecting of the Rsan
Donnelly people In Philadelphia from the
present organization as In the elimination
of Palm The Rsan Donnclly outfit had
been threatened with expulsion bo often
that there were still doubts In the minds
of the members of the committee whether
thev really would be read iut of the
party
Those who were dropped were William
C Bennett Patrick Donahue Thomas J
Rsan Thomas E FItzpatrick E C
Bemmls and J A Thornton Those who
take their places are ex Gov Robert

William McAleer Thomas Dciehanty
Charles E Ingersoll and AlLert B Lad

These gentlemen were Immedlatels rec
ognized and or their substitutes
took part in the proceedings of the com
mlttee this afternoon There Is much
confidence among Democratic leaders and
they do not hesitate to predict the elec
tion of ex Governor Pattlson for a third
term In the gubernatorial chair next year
Thes hint that Justice Potter ls not ac
ceptable to a large number of Repub
licans and that both he and Harris the
Republican candidate feir State Treas

The proposed amendments for voting

strongly endorsed

SAN FRANCISCO Oct 11 All day the
House of Deputies at the Episcopal con
vention debateel on the canon regulating
the marriage of divorceel persons and
when tho session endeel it was found
necessary to postpone the discussion un
til next Mondas when a voto will
be taken
The speakers at the mcrnlng session ele
flned clearlv tho lines of argument as be
tween the absolute prohibition of all such
marriages as recommended the House
of Bishops and the more liberal posi
tion of the Episcopal Chutch at the pres
ent time allowing the innocent parts in
a divorce fiction to have a second mar
riage solemnized by a minister of the
church Supporters or this latter Idea
headed by Dr Huntington of New York
maintain that It Is contrary to the teach
ings of Christ to down such a sweep
ing regulation as that proposed The op
ponents claim that the church neeels to
take the most advanceel stand possible
for preserving the purity of the f imlly
relations which Is In the greatest dan
ger In the United States at present
The theological and moral side of the
question as such ls evidently not the
chief concern of the deputies The discus
sion soon drifting awas from these more
or less technical and rigid rules to the
broader ground of the expedlencs of
adopting one or the other of the alterna
tives offered and tho probable result on
the moral life of the country and upon
the Church and Its relation to the people
Against Dr Huntington who spoke for
the rights of the lnrocent parties to di
vorce were the Rev Dr Greer of New
York who favored the section as adopted
by the Bishops the Rev Dr Randolph
P McKIm of Washington D C and the
Rev Dr J C Bacchus of Long Island
Many other clerical and lay deputies of
note spoke
The most prominent las deputies speak
ing were Charles Andrews Chief Justice
of the Court of Appeals of New York
and George II Williams of Oregon for
merly Attorney General of the United
States Both opposed the section as an
attempt to abridge the lawful rights of
Innocent parties Another prominent
speaker and one who vislbls Impressed
his hearers was the Rev Dr R J Nevin
rector of the Protestant Episcopal Church
in Rome Italy He declared there was
much more marital infidellts In Europe
under the Roman Church which prohibits

to consolidate the control of the stock of
the Great Northern and Northern Pacific
The denial by President James J Hill of
lh Great Northern that arrangements
were under way to place the majority
stockholders of that company and the
Northern Pacific in the custody of a new

prised to learn that Sir Thomas Llpton

Idea of what Ms planb are It Is general
ly thought that Sir Thomas will begin
to make his arrangements at once and
that If there ls not a challenge from some
one else for a race next sear he will
challenge again for a race to be sailed in

When he announced this to his men
stood up and cheered heartily and
there was not a man in the reiem who
did not think that Sir Thomas would
keep on trying until he flnalls won The
dinner was a novel one It was the first
time that the ow ner of a big racing yacht
had shown In such a was his appreciation
or the work Ills me n did The men liked
the eomnliment too and If thes should
come back on another of Sir Thomas
Sachts this vull work harder for him
than ever
It was after 1 o clock when Auld Lang
Svn was sung and the men returned to
their berths Sir Thomas toasteel evers
one He paid Captain Sscamore a high
compliment then told what Mr Watson

his sails anel then called for a toast to
Mr Jameson who Sir Thomas said hud
done evervtlilng in his power to make
the Shnmiock a winner Mr Jameson

for the roan of the w Inning craft Be

Capt F E Chadwlck having parted
with his patrician friends at Newport
appeared at the Court of Enquiry yester
day and being sworn as a witness suc
ceeded In finding an opportunltyjo mani
fest his enmity against the victor ot
Santiago He went far out of his way
to do this and it was with some dim
cults that he managed to register his 111
feeling toward Schley He was asked if ho
did not recollect that Sampson had sent
Schles a despatch on May 29 congratulat
ing him nn the effective blockade he had
maintained Captain Chadwlck remem
bered it and in that recollection he saw
his chance to deliver Schley a blow He
recalled the ifespatch certainly iezy
plainly because he had protested against
IL Whs 7 Because he did not believe
that the blockade which Schley had main
tained justified commendation
The man who made this statement upon
the witness stand yesterday was the man
who commanded the cruder New- York
and who helped Sampson to win the bat
tle of Santiago after Schley had destroyed
the Spanish fleet and received the sur
render of Cervera Captain Chadwlcks
manner upon the witness stand sesfrday
Indicated that he did not enjoy his posi
tion It seemcel to affect him with ennui
He gave some further testimony but
none of It related to the battle of San
tiago as hearsas evidence ls not admit
ted by the Court and he had no personal
knowledge ttnon the subject
He over reached himself in his effort to
show that Schley had been advascd of tho
communication established with the in
surgents bs Captain McCalla He said
that the memorandum containing this in
formation had been sent to Schley on May
13 As a matter of fact Captain McCalla
did not arrive in Key West until the af
ternoon of that day and according to the
testimony of all the witnesses upon the
subject and the evidence of the records
no ship sailed for Clcnfuegos until the
following das
At another time there appeared to be a
conflict In the mind of the New Yorks
captain upon the matter of these de
spatches to Schley by reason of which ho
admltteel that Sampson had written the
Dear Schley letter telling Schley to re
main at Cienfuegns and blochaJc that
port after he Sampson had been in
formed by the department that Cervera
was believed to be In Santiago Further
along In his Captain Chadwlei
stated that Sampson had also been ad
vised through Colonel Allen of the Sig
nal Service of the thai Cervera
was at Santiago
The doubt in his mind was not relieved
however until Colonel Allen at 6 oclock
on the cvenlnc onlay 20rtcelved a con
firmation of the Information from Ihe
cable operator in Havana who com
municated dally at that hour with the of
fice in Kei West Then It was that
Sampson sent the despatches by tho
Marblehead and later by the Hawk to
Schley telling him to go to Santiago The
message sent the Hawk Is the one
which Schles received
Captain Cliaelvrlekn Recollections
At another point In his testimony Cap
tain Chadwlck laid a further chargeMat
the door of Schles He said that on May
1 when- Schles reached Key West and
went aboard the New York he stated that
he Schles was pleased to be under the
command of jvomlral Sampson and that
be would be perfectly losal at all times
Ho further accused Schley of saslng Just
as he was leaving Sampsons flagship off
Santiago on June 4 that tho Spaniards
erould not be kept in the harbor If they
wanted to come out Captain- Chadwlck
said he remembered that remark very
well
Captain Chadwlck also made the asser
tion that the code of signals was espe
cialls established for the Cubans to en
able them to communicate with the fleet
conveying the impression that It was for
the benefit of the Insurgents rather than
the Americans He did not explain how
It could be effective however unless the
officers of the fleet were cognizant of It
The witness who preceded Captain
Chadwlck upon the stand was Lieut
Charles R Marh flag secretary to Ad
miral Sampson He too hail a great deal
to say about the despatches which wero
sent by Sampson to Schley while the lat
ter was off Cituiuegos Ho cvareined a
geat man press copy books registers
and Journals am made liberal use of his
memory to show when and by what ves
sels the messages from Sampson to Schley
hail been sent When he had concluded he
practicalls had all the vessels leaving Key
West the Iowa Dupont the Marblehead
and the Hawk carrying all the despatches
so that there was no was by which Schley
could have missed receiving the McCalla
memeirandum containing the Informa
tion about the landing place near Cienfue
gos and the fact that communication had
been established with the insurgents
W hat he could not show bs the press
cops book he showed bs the journal and
what that volume failed to produce In
the was- of desired information he found
upon the register and when all three
failed a ready recollection was brought
forward to suppls the omission and make
the explanation When he was Informed
thit there were two originals of the
Dear Schles letter one with nn erasure
and one without he went so far as to say
tliat possibly the Hawk might have car
ried a duplicate but not the first and the
original as that had been sent by the Du
pont
When It was shown by Mr Rayncr that
Schles replied Immediately to despatch
No S the last ono sent to Clcnfuegos and
which advised him definitely to go to
Santiago and that he had therein men
tioned receiving the McCalla memoran
dum the witness said possibls Schley hail
gotten it before and had only Just then
taken it up
Milch of the testimony during the morn
ing session sesterdas was devoted to the
blockade off Santiago and the reconnols
sance of May 31 the witnesses giving evi
dence upon these two points being Lieut
Adclbert Althouse watch officer of the
Massachusetts and Lieut Theodore O
Dowey nephew of Admiral Dewey also
aboard tha Massachusetts Very little
that teas new was developed from either
of these witnesses and neither was cross
examined by Mr Rayner
Lieut Trancls Boughter who was
aboard the Marbiehead told of the block-
