The only oflice that seemed to be out of disptita were thew of secretary 1 of stntn mid attorney general. Tho torniitrollersliip seemed to lie the main bone of contention and during tho after noon there developed live new candi-dut'-s. The lenders smiled and refused to make selections. Tho probability there fore is that tho slate will not be selected before tonight, and that even then sev rnil candidates will be left to light over the places. (irrinnns and the Kxcise Plank, Six representatives of the German Rfl Jorm union, of New York city, have ar 'ived. They will not ask to bo s"ated in the convention, but will insist upon the admission by fair representation of tho State Demoeraey.

Wo shall demand tlio seuting of our delegation." "What will you accept as tho lowest rep resentatN.or" - ... Well I'm not prepared to say. Yrm see we arc willing, for harmony s sake, to mnko concessions on tho state ticket, but wo want it distinctly understood that any ileal wo niako here is not to bind us to 1 .iiumany in any way on local issues in icw York county." .

It will be the duty of that committee to lay before ?nch political party onr principles and ex plain to each our position. The commit tee will present our platform. We will demand recognition, put each party on record, and then determine what we shall do. You can depend on this: Wc won't vote with a party that condemns our principles and wo won't support any party that makes a bid for the ltoman Catholic vote." "Do yon expect, then, to control tho nejrt election?" "We do. The party wo vote with will win. We are not going in as a political party, but we have principles to carry out, and it is to advance them that wo shall vote. Wc will have a hnnd in the elec tions in every state in tiie Union.

LAKE LEVELS WILL & PISCUSSED With Especial Reference to the EftVct of the Chicago Drainage Channel Thereupon A Warm Contest Expected by the Windy City Delegate oa That Question, Which WUI Be Met Timorously How to Neutralize the Outflow. Cleveland, Sept. 24 Many prominent members of the International Deep Wa terways association have already arrived In the city to attend the annual convention, which commences this afternoon. Messrs. Frank Wenter, Isham Randolph, Thomas T. Johnston, F. J. Ward, George Dawson, William Boldcnweck and Lyman F. Cooley, of Chicago, are here to represent tho Chicago drainage canal. President Wenter will deliver an address Wednes day evening, illustrating it with stereop ticon view's. Engineer Ward said that he believed the first thing to do was to construct dams and weirs to maintain the level of tho waters of the great Likes. He would dam the water of Lakes Huron and Superior and also Niagara river. He thought it could be done at a cost of S,XX,000. The Chicago men expect a vigorous attack on tho drainago channel and are prepared to defend that big ditch with all their eloquence. Looking For a Stormy Time. Randolph is reported as saying: "Yes, we are looking for a rather stormy time. This will be too favorablo a chanco for the opponents of the upper lake interests to let pass. Tho matter has been given a place on tho programme under the head ing: 'Control of the outflow and levels of the great lakes system.' Several papers will be read, but of tho authors I know only Mr. Johnston, of our board here, and Mr. Wisncr, of Detroit, who has always taken our side in previous discussions. As to who will lead the opposition I am not informed. Major liiiffner, tho big gun of the other side, has, you know, been transferred to tho Pacific, coast, and I imagine that that is too long range for him to do much execution now. Action Likely To Be Takea. "The only positive action taken, doubt less, will bu the ndoption of resolutions commending tho subject to the joint oxm mission recently authorized by congress and the Canadian parliament There is nothing in that action we care to oppose, as we are not njrnid of investigation. Any resolutions adverse to tho canal would certainly be resisted because of the possible moral effect that notion by such a conven tion might have, and wo shall try to pre sent the enso in its true light. On ac count of their nearness to tho convention city the lower biko region will probably bo well represented numerically, but Chl Ciigtrls etrralti oT support from the tipper lake region and from tho Mississippi val ley, including Pittsburg and vicinity." Argnmcnt of the Drainage Board. Assistant Kngincor Johnston, who has spent much time in the collection of data on the subject of lako levels, will represent the drainage board in tho discussion. In an interview at Chicago he said: "There are mnny ways of restoring tho lake levels and neutralizing tho increased overflow. A dam across Niagara would check it, and dams at tho mouth of Lake Superior would make of that body a great reservoir, water from whieh might lx used to equalize the level of the lower lakes. Con gress could better afford to undertake this improvement, lioneflcinl to the whole northwest, than to limit tho value of arti ficial waterways like tho drainage canal. I shall emphasize the point that as tho Chicago canal is navigable like the others I have mentioned, the possible advantages to commerce would well compensate for the inevitable evil effects. Many Fancies and Delusions. "It Is almost undeniable that the ques tion of raising or lowering tho lake levels is in the same category an an eclipse of the moon. It creates a great variety of popu lar fancies and delusions. From this most of the interest arises. The attitude taken is not exactly a misapprehension. It is, you might say, a cross between a misap prehension and a fad." WIND HAVOC IN WISCONSIN. Large Xnmber of Buildings Wrecked and Other Costly Damage Done MlLWrr.REE, Sept. 24. Reports from various parts ef the stttc show that tho storui on Sunday night and early yester day morning was one of tho severest ex perienced in Wisconsin for years.
