HILL'S FRIENDS TALK.
Croker's Attack on the Sena tor Causes Them to Study , the Past. Ili3y Say Tammany Owes Its Present Strength to Him. Threatened Organization of an Opposition Machine in Gotham. Eourke Cockran Has a Satis factory Interview With Mr. Cleveland. Nrw York. Jan. 14.— Tammany's al leged family turmoil continues to excite the interest of politicians and people throughout the Empire state. Espe cially is this true of New York city. Little else is talked of in the hotel cor ridors and resorts where men interested in politics congregate, and everybody seems to be asking: "Is the mountain laboiing only to bring forth a mouse, or will it be .i regular political volcano." According to the political gossips, if Mr. Croker does make war on Mr. Hill. it will cause the downfall of Tammany. Here is what the Albany correspond ent of the World has to say upon the matter: ••Richard Croker's sudden and unex pected aitack upon Hill, made last Tuesday; and the story that has grown (nit of it. that Tammany is anxious to ;hiow Hill over, have aroused the friends o) the senator. They have been studying the past, and have recalled l'acts and circumstances that prove to their.minds three things. To tin sernv toi they say imany.owes its present strength and influence; to. the senator Richard Croker owes his success as a leader, and if 'i ammany raises a hand against the senator it will show The Blackest I tit ode, lUidAviil cause its own downfall. The men who make these statements make them positively. One of Senator Hill's lr, finis said today that I Iroker was mightily jealous of Hill, because he recognizes in the senator a master. •• •Hill is bright and quick,' said he, 'whiltj Croker is lazy ami slow. Hill de pends upon his public utterances,* upon his silence. Hill is miles above him. If •oker dares show his teeth. Hilt will ci me back to this city during the miner vacation, and by tall he will have a machine built up that will crush Tammany into atoms. Croker, as a' factor in state politics, ": should know that lie is not capable of . plinc with the senator, and he had better not try it. Hill can get along very well without Croker; Croker cannot get alone without Hill, warm friendship has never existed be tween the two men. They are too far ! apart mentally. A warm friendship does exist between Croker and Murphy. They are two of a kind. The idea of a man like Croker turning Hill down is absurd. If Croker is not care lul iiow lie walks. Hill will turn him down. Neither Hill nor his friends be lieve much in Tammany's politics. Tammany men play politics as an Irish man plays the violin —by main strength.'" Continuum, the correspondent relates little ancient political history, in which he shows low Senator Hill saved Tammany from defeat in the, mayoralty contest of IS'.'O. and secured the election of Mr. Grant. He then goes on ;o say: ■ 'JTaisiiWJisiy Warned. "After the battle wasover,a Tammany man called on the governor ami thanked him lor his services. The iverner looked steadily at his caller and said savagely: '1 went to .New York to help you out of trouble. 1 topped you when 1 saw i hat you were on the point of making n deal with the common en emy for the sole and seltisti purposeof strengthening your own supremacy, and without any regard for the welfare of the state Democracy. Then I inter fered, liemeniber. henceforth, that under no circumstances can you keep your hands clean if you consent to form any sort of an alliance with the party wliicli it is your duty to sturdily and mbat.' "The friends of Mr. Hill say, too, that in lS'.tl the wigwam would nathave had a full representation in the state convention if it had not been for Hill. About this time Tammany, filled with the consciousness of power, became ar rogant. Hutrh McLaughlin was of- i ended by some of its overbearing acts and sullied. For months, uner a placid surface, tlie political waters bubbled furiously. The services of Mr. Hill were obtained, and by his exertions the storm was quelled. senator Hill's friends relate these things to prove that without his aid Tammany would go to pieces soon.'' Referring to the session of the Re publican legislature in lS8i), he says that Mr. Hill, then governor, vetoed several bills in which Tammany was interested. Cockran Pleased. The Herald this morning said:" When Dourke Cockran. as the representative of Tammany hall, • left Mr. Cleve land's oilice in the Mills build in:: yesterday at the conclusion of an hours interview with the president-elect, he was evidently ]ile,ist-d with what had transpired. There is authority for the statement that Mr. Crulcer and Senator Hill will not train in the future together on any issue in which Mr. Cleveland is in volved. There is also good reason for the bt-lief that Mr. kran frankly told Mr. Cleveland so, -but the eloquent Tamma-jy congressman would not admit ' that he did. The visit of Mr. Cockran aroused a live lier interest than ever in the future re lations between Mr. Cleveland and Tammany hall. Mr. Cockran declares that more importance has been given his visit than it is entitled to and that 1 1 is meeting with Mr. Croker and Police Commissioner Martin at the lioliiiian house Thursday night* imme diately after his arrival was accidental. 31 r. Cockran was asked about His inter view with Mr. Cleveland. •' "I do not care to speak of it except to say that I did not come here specially tn set; Mr. Cleveland.' was the reply. 'I went to see him because I desired io talk with him about legislation now be fore congress. Mr. Cleveland received me kindly and I was glad to have occa sion to talk with him.' " 'Is ii peace or war between Mr. Cleveland and Tammany Hall?' ''1 ilici not come to see Mr. Cleveland about that, and it is not necessary for me to talk about it. There can be no war with Mr. Cleveland so far as the Democratic organization in this city. or state is concerned. Tammany Hall will certainly support Mr. Cleveland in any thing lie niav desire to do." Tammany's new general committee held its lirst meeting at the society's rooms last night, and organized for the ensuing year. Many words ot praise were littered by speakers for President elect Cleveland. Tho nomination ol Murphy lor senator was also ap proved of. SILVKR REPEAL. AH Opposition Co It Charged t:: Democrats. Pjjri-ADKi.i'niA. Jan. 14.— Prompted by an intimation from Secretary Bayard ihat.but lor a disposition among Republican senators to embarrass the Cleveland aeministration, a silver re peal bill could be passed in the senate. Senator Sherman has prepared a state ment for the Ledger, in which he will state: "it is as well known as auytuiu<r can be that a large majority of the Republi can senators, including myself, are de cidedly in favor of the repeal or suspen sion of the purchase 'of silver bullion. They are ready today, tomorrow or at any "moment to vote for such a repeal. It is equally well known thai, not more than one-fourth or one-fifth of the Deniociatic senators are in favor of such repeal, and they will resort to extreme measures to prevent it. They are openly pro nounced for the free coinage of silver or the continuance of the existing law. The pretense made that the Republican senators would sacrifice the public in terests for a mere political scheme is without foundation, and 1 feel like de nouncing it. If the Democratic party will furnish a contingent of ten senators in support of the repeal of the silver act "t ISSIO. it will pass the senate within ten days. As for Mr. Bayard, he stairds where he has always stood on financial questions, substantially right, but act ing with a party wrong on such ques tions."' "The opinions expressed by him in his interview in the Ledger are.- not con curred in by more than six Democrats, but it is hoped a few will join iii sus pending the purchase of silver bullion. Permit me to say in conclusion that the Democratic party, as now represented in the senate, is and has been free coinage of silver. 1 hopd the Eastern Democ racy and Mr. Cleveland may have some influence in changing their opinions," • WILL HOLD NO CAUCUS. The Senatorial Contest in Nebras ka to lie a Free-for-All. Lincoln, Neb., Jan. Tuesday the legislature of Nebraska will meet in joint session to begin balloting for a United States senator. Neither party will present a caucus nomi nee for a time, but will see what strength the forty-three avowed candi dates will have tin tin; first few ballots. At least one ballot will be taken each day until a choice is reached. No one expects an election within three weeks, and few believe it will be made within | six weeks. Monday there will be a big tight over the question on president of the joint session, it will be a bitter fight, and two presiding officers may bu 'ue result. Arkansas Changes Governor. Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 14.— After four years' service Gov. Eagle retired today and Col. W. A. M. Fishbacic was inagurated, together with the others elected in September. Gov. Fallback's address was brief and devoted mainly to discussing the material resources of the state.

German Strikers Attempt a Ter rible Revenge, Berlin, Jan. 14.— 1t is evident the lawless element among the coal miners are determined to revenue themselves for the discharge of so many of the men who took •an active pare in the troubles in the mining districts. Dynamite, which is extensively used in mining operations, is easily procurable by the discharged men. and this explo sive seems to be the favorite weapon of ' the malcontents in wreaking vengeance upon the mine owners. Today a terrific explosion occurred in the consolidation colliery at Gelsenkircheu, and after the excitement had subsided it was found that it had been caused by dynamite cartridges, and so arranged that they would explode at a certain lime. Though many men were at work at the time, it so happened that none of them was in the vicinity of the explo sion, and therefore nobody was killed. A number of miners were, however, thrown violently down by the concus sion. The damage done to the mine was great. Immense timbers and huge masses of rock were blown out of place, and some of the galleries were completely blocked. It will require considerable time to get the mine in good working order azain. Great in dignation is expressed that the authors of the outrage should have risked the lives of hundreds of men for the sake of Tevengine themselves against me mine owners. It will go hard with them if they are discovered. Every day sees a decrease of the men who went on strike. All hope of success has been abandoned, and it is expected that in a short time all the men whom it is in— tended shall be re-employed will be at work. FINISH THEIR LABORS.

Dr. Johnson stated that he would not return during the night unless sent for. and from indica tions he could see no reasons foi that. Dr. Hyatt will not be there either. This would indicate that the physicians felt confident that Mr. Elaiue will have -a i quiet night. | Mr. Blame's physicians, after their | visit at 2:30 this afternoon, nave out the following bulletin: "Mr. Blame passed a restless night, but is now stronger and brighter than for several days . past." The family is apparently very much encouraged at The Improvement Noted in the condition of Mr. Blame. and this was evidenced by the fact that Miss I Uattie lilaine and James G. Blame Jr. came out of the house this evening for a few minutes' airing, and to engage in a snowballing bout. Mrs. Senator Hale has made three visits to the house today.

While more or less nourishment was given Mr. Blame, the physicians admitted that he is living on "stimulants, and several times his life has been recalled by the administration of nitro-glycerine, which ! in its results has even surprised the : physicians. -It was evident from the replies to the interrogatories of the re porters that Dr. Johnson was mystified at the wonderful vitality possessed by the patient. Washington, Jan. 15.— The Blame house was closed about 11:30, and up to this hour, 1:30 a. m., there have been no signs of life within. .As the last caller came out he said that Mr. Blame was resting easy, and that there was no cuange in his condition.
