Boston, Aug. 14. A resolution that
the International Typographical union
Indorse tho nntlonal democratic plat
form and candidates, presented ut the
fifty-fourth annual convention of tho
union In this city late to-day, de
veloped a keen and spirited debate.
The resolution was finully withdrawn
by request of the president who ug-g'-sted
that lis withdrawal would b
preferable to having It defeated as a
defeat would put the union on rerord
having "thrown down Bryan."
The resolution was Introduced by
Delegate Henry West of Birmingham,
Ala. As soon as It was placed before
the convention a vigorous and deter
mined argument started. One dele
gate declared that the union rules pre
vented the discussion of polities, but
President Lynch ruled that the resolu
tion could be discussed. An appeal
was taken, hut the chair was sustain
ed. De'egute Berry of Chicago de
clared that the democrats 'presented
the best platform of the year for trade
unionists and advised all the labor
men to work Individually for the dem
ocratic principles. Victor Berger of
Milwaukee, a socialist, asked the dif
ference between the republican and
democratic parties, declaring "one as
l ad as the other." ,
Delegates Estey of Patersnn. N". J
eulogized Samuel Gompers. but de
clared he did not bellpve that because
he went over to the democrats all
should follow like sheep. He then
made a plea for the Independence
Mr. West Anally withdrew his reso
lution. A declaration of political principles
which wntalned no reference to par
ties or candidates was adopted. . A
resolution that the International Ty
pographical union sever Its connection
with the American Federation of T,a
bor and the Canadian Trades and La
bor congress was warmly discussed
nnd defeated,
At the morning session Chief For

Residents of Annex Driven from
Porches by That Awful Smell.
It was a bad evening last night from
the standpoint of summer comfort for
n number of residents of the Annex,
who happen to have the misfortune
to reside In too close proximity to
the garbage piggeries In that section
of the township of New Haven. George
Smith Adnms nf loon Qulnntplac avenue,
with his family, was enjoying the hot
evening out of doors, when, with no
wind blowing, and with everything
calm and serene, there suddenly de
scended upon the residents a malodor
ous scent that quickly drove all out of
doors off their happy and comfortable
air perches. It was the old story of
the scent, that awful piggery scent, ris
ing up to smite the dwellers In the
land of garbage deposition, and the
dwellers certainly felt that they were
well smitten once more Inst night, right
In. line with their past experiences. Tho
scent seems neither to grow less ob
jectionable, nor to be In any way modi
tied, but still swoops down and must
be endured with noses held behind
doors and walls. ,
Anarchistic and Suffrnjgettle Hordes
Descend on Convention.
New York, -Aug. 14. Two rival "ar
mies" descended upon the meeting of
the Commercial Travelers Interstate
congress here to-day. First came a
horde of grim looking men under the
leadership of Alexander Berkman,
professed anarchist, who some years
ago shot H. C, Frick, the millionaire,
during the Homestead steel strike
rits. It was necessary for the police
to dispel this "army" and Berkman
angrily rebuked his followers as a
lot of "spineless,' drivelling Idiots" for
not opposing the police. Berkman
and his followers claimed to repre
sent 10,000 unemployed worklngmen
who declared they had come to de
mand participation in the prosperity
the congress said existed. Hardly
lass formidable was the second
"army," fr it was composed of wom
en of the suffragette movement, and
they demanded recognition by the
prosperity congress. The police were
not called to dispel this "army"-diplo-macy
was used.
, Aside from these Interruptions tho
prosperity congress was considered a
great success.
Canadian Government Intervenes and
Settlement Is Near.
Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 14. -It was said
to-night that the Dominion govern
ment, through the railway commission,
will Intervene in the strike now on In
all the meeluinle.il trades on the Can
adian Pacific railway. Tho prospects
are fair for an amicable settlement of
all differences between the company
and the men within the next forty
oiglit hours, It is said,
Local Democratic Lenders Will Give
Him Their Aid.
It Is pretty certain that the present
local democratic machine will give
its support to Judge, Samuel L. Brim
Bon of this city, for governor There
Is the strongest sentiment for him and
it Is said by tha leaders that they will
give him their best efforts.
Judje Bronson Informed tha demo
cratic state central committee when It
met here a week ago that he was will
ing to accept the nomination If It were
tendered him, and on the strength of
his declaration tho New Haven ma
chine had decided to support him.
There are many democrats hero
who are In favor of tho nomination of
Judge A. Hoaton Robertson, and the
old timers want ex-Oov. Waller of
New London to run again.
Closet Fire Disastrous
at 11 White
Another closet fire In tho tenement
occupied by Isadora Ciamm at 11
White street, resulted In a lire dam
age to the amount of about $150 last
night. Just how the fire originated Is I
not certain. j no occupants claim
that they left tho house vacant ten
minutes before the alarm was turiied
In from box 143. It Is thought that
a match must have been dropped in
the closet when aotneono was looking
for some clothes before the family
left the house. The tiro burned out
the dining room and tho closet. The
owner of the house Is Dennis Kelly.
New Voters Registered Double
in Number to Those on Re
publican Side.
Surprised That Caucuses
Been Held In Other
Parts of State.
Considerable surprise was manifest
last night when the result of the
second day of registration for the
primaries became known. Through
out the different wards, where the
deputy registrars of both parties were
In session, 500 democrats were en
rolled and 250 republicans. The gen
eral belief had been that there would
be a majority of republicans because
of the hard work the deputies had
been doing for some weeks In the va
rious wards. The democratic deputies
were not appointed until two weeks
ago and there was very little time for
any canvass. The previous Friday,
the first day of the registration, the
new voters were about evenly divid
ed, 75 being republicans and 75 dem
ocrats. Inquiry from the registrars In re
gard to the holding of caucuses In
various cities throughout the state
before the second Friday of registra
tion, brought out the fact that con
siderable surprise Is felt here. The
local registrars do not believe that
under the statutes caucuses could be
held before the second Friday of reg
istration, and that the delegates al
ready elected might be disqualified.
There Is no belief, however, that the
caucuses held In other cities were held
before hand In order that any partic
ular faction might elect a delegation.

New Orleans, La., Aug. 14. -John J.'

In this resort, conducted by Mrs. Hen

Lima, Peru, Aug. 14. MIps Annie S.
Peek, of Providence, II. I., the moun
tain climber, signalled at 4 o'clock this
afternoon her arrival at an nllltude of
25.000. feet on Mount Buasenrnn, the
summit of which Is covered with per
petual snow.
Miss Perk left New York two months
ago to make another attempt to reach
the summit of Mount Hnascaran, which
she believed to be the highest peak In
the western hemisphere. On an earlier
trial she was compelled to give up the
attempt, after reaching-1 a, height of
1 T.r.00 feet, owing to the cowardice
of her guides. By reaching an altitude
of 2Ti,000 feel, Miss Peck has ascend
ed higher than any man or woman In
the world. The previous record was
held by W. W. Graham, who reached a
height nf 2;),8,m feet In the Himalaya.

by secret service men, was admitted
by Mehmcd's secretary to-night.
While declining to make public the
text of these communications, the sec
retary slated that some, were sent
from New York and others bore the
Washington postmark. There is a
disposition on the part of Mehmed'
adherents to blame the new charge d'

for the letters, alleging that the writ

ReiioMed That He Will Really Let
Stnto Convention Select Nominee.
New York. Aug. 14. Timothy L.
Woodruff, chairman of the republican
state committee, had little to say to
day about the political situation In
the state. He had talked with Wil
liam Barnes, Jr., and Francis Hen
dricks after their return from' Oyster
bay, where they had a long conversa
tion with thi president yesterday, but
refused to tell what was the result of
the conference. The renomlnatlon of
Hughes for governor was up to the
f convention, he declared again.
Other republicans of . prominence
asserted that the president had heen
brought around to the Idea of Wood
ruff and Herbert Parsons, the chair
man of the county committee, to let
the convention have a real say In the
nomination of a governor, without In
terference from the president, the
state organization or the county or
ganization. If Governor Hughes Is
nominated by the convention, the or
ganization will do all It can to elect
him, said the men who were authority
for the story.

with passengers to the Hamburg Amer
ican and bananas to the United Fruit

is eighteen Inches In length and half
of It Is tall, it partakes of the nature
I nf a rat, a monkey, a skunk, a mar-

I of the Brona Zoological Park will be
asked by Koch to determine what kind)
of an animal he possesses. j
Koch obtained the beast some months

turned off the current. Koch has had
numerous offers for his pet, but is de
