Syracuse, Sept. 25. The Democratic
state convention waa called to order on
time by Chairman Hinckley, of the state
committee, who introduced Perry Bel

taking the chair Belmont made a short
speech.

of .Senator Murphy. Gilroy stayed with
Murphy for some time, but as ho had a
resolution to present he strolled into the
convention In the middle of Belmont's
Bieech. Another of the features of the
diiy was the cutting by Belmont of that
part of his speech denouncing third term
presidential aspirations. Some of the
Tniiimanyltcs who had prepared to re

Were disappointed.
What Hrlmont Didn't Ray.
- Relating to the matter last evening Bel
mont suid to the Associated Press corro
spoiulcnt: "My speech in general point
ed to that tfca, but I did not deem It wiso
to make any great move In criticizing tho
ndmlniM ration's attitude in that direction.
Personally, however, I nm willing to bo
quoted as against a third term." In his
.speech as Belmont intended to make it he
quoted several sections of the resolution
for the platform of 1873 written by Gov
ernor Seymour. Among them thlsoccurs:
"The presidency is a public trust, not a
private erulsite; no flilrd term." This
was tho part ho concluded to suppress.
Ills Bottleuient or the Exrlse.
He said on tho excise question: "'The
preachers and the churches, the brewers
nml the saloons, should act together,
formulate, vote for and enforce a reasona
ble excise law. Hubrlety Is very Important,
hut not more important than Is personal
freedom for sober men to buy, ent, drink
and do what pleases them if it does' not'
Infringe on the rights of others." On the
financial question Belmont declared that
tho New York Democrat has always
been for "sound money." He sold tho
greenbacks cause tho driving out of our
gold. The speaker coneludi-d with a de
nunciation of the late Itcpubllcun legisla
ture. Provfatlnn for Contests.
Tho most important thing done by the
ronvention was tho adoption of a resolu
tion giving in contests to the "regular"
delegates two to every one givcti to the
contesting or independent Democratic or
ganizations. In other words, all the "reg
ulars" will havo votes and in addition
half of tho 'Irregulars." Tammany is
fighting this tooth and nail, In spite of the
fact that it is approved by Hill and other
leaders.
TAMMANY WINS THE FIGHT.
State Demorrary of Oothara Only Given
One-finii Vote.
Tho ninny 1mhiiis for ofllco have been
pushed with a persistency that is amus
Ing. There ore nt least a half dozen men
who are sure of tho nomination for coinp
t roller. Tho ticket so for as it was slated
last night Is about the same as in the
morning. General interest centered about
the meeting of the committee on resolu
tions, where the excise plank was being
discussed in executive session, and about
the committee on credentials, where the
New York and other contests were to bo
d.-cided.
In the credentials committee the prlncl
ctpal lione of contention was the New
York seats and speeches were made for
the State Democracy by Charles N. Knlr
clilld and for Tammany by Thomas Grady,
and then the committee went into execu
tive session. The committee flnsjSf adopt
ed a resolution by a vote of 32 to 17 mak
ing the representation four-fifths of a vote
for Tammany Hall and one-fifth for tho
rotate Democracy. The resolution adopted
declares tho Tammany Hall organization
regular and entitled to seats in the con
vention and entitled to recognition at all
future conventions as regular. Its dele
gates are to bo placed upon the prelimi
nary roll. They are to be tho sole users of
tho party column and emblem. But In
the interest of harmony the committee ac
cords a one llfth vote to the contestants
and four-fifths to Tammany.
In the committee on resolutions there

Gilt,
n
else plank, but the platform aaoptea was
In substance as follows: "We affirm that
self-government and home rule in cities
involve local option in excise and other
regulations which require local public
sentiment for their fair enforcement. The
Republican policy of ruling New York
and other great cities from Albany has
utterly failed; its sole defense of unifor
mity of law throughout the state falls he
fore the ridiculous fact that it is today a
crime to sell a drink, but not a crime to
shave, at one end of the Brooklyn bridge,
and a crime to shave but not a crime to
sell a drink at the other.
"The Democratic party does not waver in
its hostility to sumputuary legislation and
to every interference of the majority, how
ever benevolent or exalted their motive,
with personal liberty, except when neces
sary to secure public order or decency or
the equal rights of citizens. To the liquor
business, as to many lawful businesses,are
applicable considerations of public safetv.
order and quiet. What special restrictions
of this character are needful for each of
the various and widely differing com
munities of this state should be left to its
citizens to determine."
On the financial question the platform
says: "We favor a sound currency and a
safe banking system, which can bo based
only on an honest dollar of a single stand
ard of valuo the standard of the civilized
world. W o oppose the free coinage of six
ty cents worth of silver into a dollar. The
government should go out of the bunking
business, ana should limit ttucll to sale'
guarding banking methods which will ex
tend throughout the country tho money
advantages of the cities. Tho legal tender
notes, born of the necessities of a struggle
for national existence, should be with
drawn." Tho resolutions demand no steps back
ward in tariff reform, declaring it the
true cure for the present evils. Cleveland
is commended for his financial and tariff
policies, for his action in tho Chicago
strikes and for his foreign policy, and
the state of New York is pledged to a suc
cessor who will bo equally honored and
trusted by the people
Third Term Talk.
WASHlNOTOX.Scpt. 25. President Cleve
land will not bo a candiduto before tho
Democratic national convention In 18!S.
This, at any rate, is the information that
has come to tho surface in Washington. A
member of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet is au
thority for this statement. It is said that
President Cleveland will shortly set at
rest all talk of his ambition for a third
term. One of the prominent members of
Cleveland's cabinet has permitted this
Information to leak out, and U willing, if
necessary, that he should lie called upon to
substantiate in public what hn hits said
privately. According to this official Pres
ident Cleveland has no aspiration what
ever for another term.
Tho cabinet officer Koes so for as to say
that Cleveland will soon announce his po
sition on this question. Ho asserts that
this opportunity will bo taken when he
visits tho Atlunta exposition, Oct. 81, as
he ha) pnmiised to do. If thero Is no far
ther hitch ilr. Cleveland will deliver a
speech on that occasion, and it is promised
by this cabinet oflicer, who was principally
instrumental in getting him to visit At
lanta, that ho will state plainly as need bo
tnat no president should aspire to more
than two terms.

Clkvelasd, Sept. 25. The delegates to
tho first annual convention of the Deep
Waterways association, which assembled
here yesterday for a three days' session,
constitute a representative body. The
American congress, tho Dominion par
liament, big cities on both sides of the In'
ternatlonal boundary, great universities
and scientific associations, boards of trade
and organizatiob f engineers and vessel
owners all forces in tho -commerce -and
civilization of the American continent-
are represented. There are among th
delegates men prominent in the scientific,
educational, commercial, financial and in
dustrial world, and all aro inspired by a
common purpose to break the fetters
which hove heretofore bound tho com'
mcrce of the great lukes, by opening a
deep waterway to the sea.
Flvo Hundred People Present.
The convention may not be able to pro
Tldo the means for making the great na
tional Improvement, but it will discus!
the ways and endeavor to s jlect the best.
The convention assembled at 3 o'clock in
tho afternoon in Army and Navy hall.
There were present at the opening session
about 200 delegates and 300 visitors, who
had been attracted to Cleveland by the
convention. General F. C. O'Brien, pres
ident of tho New York Dock: commission,
presided as temporary chairman. An ad
dress of welcome was delivered by Muyot
McKisson, tho responses being by Presi
dent E. V. Smalley, of tlie St. Paul Cham
ber of Commerce, and James Fisher, M.
P., of Winnipeg. Manitoba. The first
business of the day was the report of Ex
ecutive Secretary Flower, but he said he
would let more gifted tongues talk ana
asked his hearers to accept "this splendid
gathering ns my report.
Wants an "International Supreme Court."
After some other preliminary business
the convention adjourned to evening, and
upon reconvening the business was opened
by he annual address of tho international
president, O. A. Howland.M. P.,of Toronto,
his subject being: "International Comity
and Co-opemtion." After giving an ex
haustive history of the deep water move
ment and enumerating the various obsta
cles to be overcome Mr. Howlnnd reached
the following conclusions: "Thero aro
reasons, and I think they will seem to yon
as they did to the original convention suf
flcient ones for making a permanent
means of settling difference between the
United States and the British empire by
means of an international supreme court
a part of our association platform.
Mean of Settling; All Difficulties.
"It is not to bo limited to question!
arising under this particular agreement of
treaty relating to tho waterways, but Is
to be a method of disposing of all diflieul-
ties that may arise In any wiso between
tho peoples and governmcntsof the United
States and tho British empire. And, in
the next place, tho method proposed Is not
by arbitration, but by the establishment
of a permanent court In the naturb of a
court of law. The proposal of an interna
tional court as a security against interna
tional difficulties, and the decade of inter
national injustice, between the two great
est popular governments In the world.
which on this continent aro conterminous
lor thousands of miles, is one of (our dif
ferent modes of confronting the subject."
NO SLIGHT TO DIPLOMACY.
It Would Still Have IU Field 1st the Rela
tion, of Nations.
The president then went on to say that
"there is a school of thinkers who clingto
the doctrine of laissez-fairo. They would
continue to rest upon diplomacy, partly
because- diplomacy has been the medium
of international negotiation in the past
and partly because they have a general to
conceive that a departure . from
those disposition established methods
Is not practicable." But he
added that diplomacy would still
have its mission. Private differences
were not immediately taken to courts of
law; there was first negotiation. So would
it be with notions; first the diplomats
would try to settle a dispute, and foiling
It would go to tho proposed court. H
then argued at length In favor of the idea.
At the conclusion of the president's ad
dress a number of papers were snmmitted
to the convention as follows: By James
Fisher, of Winnipeg, on "Volume and
Value of Commerce Tributary to an En
larged Waterway;" by Dcnnlson B.Smith,
of Toledo, "Necessities and Advantages of
a Ship Canal f ssffu the Great Lakes to the
Ocean;" by C. R. Vanhlse, of tho Univer
sity of Wlsconsion, "The Development of
Our Iron and Mineral Resources;" by

bert Lea, Minn., "Domestic Ship Build
ing;" by E. V. Smalley, of St. Paul,
"Lakcboard and Seaboard Cities," and by
Charles Franco, Davenport, la,, "Com
parative Study of Modern Ship Canals."
It was tho purpose to have a general
discussion of these papers last uight, but
owing to the time occupied by the deliv
ery of the president's address it was deci
ded to postpone the discussion until to
day. Mr. F. V. Smalley, of St. Paul, and
Congressman Towne, of Duluth, ad
dressed the convention briefly, after which
It adjourned.
