BOSTON , Sept. 2C George Trcd Williams was nominated for governor of Massa chusetts by silver delegates to the state democratic convention , who held tholi scata In Music hall throughout the night , was en dorsed in the street by other silver dele gates , who were kept out of the hall by po lice officers , was nominated In Pan mill lall by a convention called by the sta'o commit tee whose actlorr In giving tlcknts to § , old delegates only started the ruse of 'holding thu fort" lu Music hall through 'he night i and was also nominated by the populist Elate convention When the Fancull ball conven tion nominated Williams sixteen gold mem bers of the state committee resigned , bolted , railed another convention jnd r/accd in nomination a full ticket headed by Trcd- crick 0. Prince for governor and a full Hat of Palmer electors Unique arrd picturesque as have been scores of notable political , contests In this city , none approached that which last right nnd today wiought up the entire comtmmi'y to Its wildest pitch of excitement , an 1 icve * lias there been such an anomalous result as was shown at the close of the day , when three conventions , held In different sc-'t'ons of the city , named the same man for the head ot the ticket. The factional f.ght In the ranks of the hitherto unPed Massa chusetts democracy can bo traced Lcck to the Chicago convention last July , when , in the struggle between gold and silver , George Tied Williams and a few others boldly kfi the majority of the Massachuse ts delegation and voted for the free arrd unlimited colncgc of sliver. Slnco that time the 'rift In the lino" has gradually become wider and more bitter and charges of "traitors" and "would be dictators" have been bandied about freely STARTS THU FUN HIM3CLF. The climax was reached last evening wLcn , In the big Ilryan rally lu Music hall , Mr Williams accused the leaders with wanting to control the state convention and rcqucstcu all thoeo who were In favor of his nomina tion to stay all night Irr ' .heir setts , si that no move might be made which would deprive them of fulfilling the program which had been marked out by the silver leaders This COO of his followers obeyed to the Irttei , and through the night the vUll nas kept Uvory kind of Ingenuity was tried to make the men vacate. Thu police were called upon to clear the hall , but the > oung law yers In the silver movement mudo that ef fort unsuccessful and as a result the eloori were kept locked until 3 40 this afternoon Urlght and eaily today thousands of .neir , scores of whom were delegates from out of town , assembled around Music hall , expect ing the doors to be opened at any moment that a compromise might ensue Ovcr"rres were made by the members of the state cen tral committee and they were rejected by the men In possession of the hall , who were fear ful of treachery. The men on the outslnu then organized In Hamilton Place , In re sponse to the suggestion of Hon Timothy W. Coaklcy , the locked-ln leadei of the nli- \er men , nnd whatever business was trans acted In the hall was endorsed by the out side meeting. The state committee then went to Farreull hall , where a convention was held and the national candidate and th > . Chicago platform were endorsed and Hon George Fred Williams was nominated for gubernatorial honors. This action was plo- testcd by a number of gold dtandard demo crats , who withdrew In a body and placed n ticket favorable to Palmer and Huckner In the field err nomination pipers In Wcs loyan hall the ntntn imivontlmi of tlio pupu- llst party was held and Immediately they lieaid that Williams hud been nominated UH the frco sliver candidate for jjoxernoi they followed suit and placed him at the head of their ticket Not for eighteen years at least , If ever , In the history of the democratic party In Massachusetts , has the day of n state * convention dawned with eo many ticrraatlonal preliminaries to the formal or ianUatlon ot the assembling delegates nnd BO much uncertainty us to the developments of the convention. As a result of the refusal of the state committee , which IB controlled by the gold standard men , to admit delegates to the convention hall by credentials alone and not by ticket , and the sensational speech of George Tied Williams , the silver leader nnd candidate for the democratic nomination ( or governor , daylight found over COO silver delegates Intrenched in Music hall , where the convention wuu to meet at 11 o'clock , de termined to remain until the mooting ad journed In spile ot alt opposition , while the ctato committee of the gold men were lu conference at the qulncy house trying to formulate n plan to get the belligerents out of thu hall and meet the emergency In 1S7S. when General II F Duller vvaf tire greenback candidate for governor , hit eupporteis captured tire convention lull and adopted similar plans for holding It until the convention organized , but oven that con test was nbt 10 repletn In unique , and sen eatlonal featuuo as the fight Inaugurate ' last night by Ml. Williams and tils fol lowers. HCSIIRID : : IN Tin : HALL When | lii > slvcr | men nrinouncecr last nigh' that they intended to etay ID the hall until the convention was over a larse forei of jiollco began to form on om side of tin hall and on the streets nwr by , and It was rumored that the delcsatrs would be ejected by the olllcer * . llut representative * of the ullver men conform ! with General Martin of the Hoard of Police , and In spile of thu efforts of the Kdld men to ecturc un order for Ihe ejection of the opposition dele eaten , ( he blue coats wcm Inntrmtcd U withdraw , and Ihe waiting silver nun pro ceedcHl to kill time by sprccli making , card playing ami slrrgluK. Tiicu the manage ! of the building requested thsm to disperse , and when they refused policemen were stationed at the doors under orders to allow anyone who wished to go out , but not to permit any to return Caterers bearing lunch ordered by the silver cohorts were refused admission and then the tired and hungry politicians began to exercise their Ingenuity In an effort to smuggle refreshments Into the building. The most tragic and serious Incident of the night resulted from those persistent at tempts to secure supplies. James Hughes , a delegate from Somcrvllle losing his life In an effort to get out of the hall by a fire escape In the- rear Hughes wa preparing to Jump to the ground fifteen feet below , when his foot slipped and In trying to save hlmeelt he seized a wire dangling near The wire was a live one , and with an agonized cry , Hughes fell senseless on thr flro escape , and then tumbled to the ground , where he died before anyone could reach himThe The news of the accident reached the dele- Kates within the hill and they wore aroused to the highest pitch of excitement when Hon John II. Molten announced It from the platform and declared that It was a murder for which the gold members of the state committee were responsible There were several speeches In criticism of the com mittee nnd resolutions on the death of Mr. Hughes were finally agreed upon to he pre sented to the convention today The gathering sorn quieted down again and while card playing was resumed by many , the majority went to sleep Soon after a break was made in the Hires of the enemy at some unknown point , nnd largo baskets of sandwiches and cans of coffee were carried Into the hall. Evidently there was a secret entrance by which delegates could return to the hall also , for the num ber slowly Increased toward C o'clock am an hour later Hon T W Coikley reported that a roll call showed that 5r 0 delegates with credentials were present. At 2 30 a rn theio were apparently no more than 300 In the building. HOLDING THE FORT. Shortly after 7 o'clock Secretary Nathar : C. Robinson of the state committee , a gold man. appeared at the hall and asked the managers It they would be ready to deliver the hnll cleared of the silver men to the committee at 11 o clock , the hour at which the convention was scheduled to open Man1 ager Mudgctt said there were over COO men In the hall who had credentials to the con ventlon as delegates , and he did not see how ho could legally remove them Secre tary Robinson then retired and proceeded tn the Oulncy house , where the distribu tion ot tickets of admission to the conven tion hall to delegates holding credentials was begun. A few minutes before 11 o'clock Hon George Fred AVIlllams , with Secretary Den nison of the Bryan-Sowall-Wllllams club and a number of delegates left the American house for Music hall. They declared that all delegates holding credentials should he admitted to the hall. About the same time the gold men at the Qulncy house wore preparing to march to the hall. The gold men at the Qulncy house bent a committee of two members to the hall to ascertain If the convention could bo held , and If the gold delegation would bo admitted without delay when It appeared at the doors. The committee reported that they could not get near the doors and the. gold delegates then decided to march to the hall at noon and demand admission , If they were not notified before then that they could get In. Hundreds of delegates were gathered In front of Muslc'lull , clamoring for admis sion when 10 o'clock , the hour announced for the opening of the doors , arrived They clamored In vain , hovevcr Theodore W Coakli-y of UeJston , one of the silver leaders appeared at one of the windows of the naTI and advised the Williams' delegates on the oulsldo to organize and semV a committee to meet Mr Williams and co-operate with him In bringing about the opening ot the- lonvciuion In the hall , Mr. Coallev said , there were about 700 duly accredited dele gates holding the fort err the Inside , and he advised his fi lends to hold the foit on the outside The outsiders adopted Mr. Coak- ley's suggestions , and thu time before Mr Williams could bo brought to the hall was spent In spccchnmklng. WILLIAMS ON THE SCENE. At about 10 20 Mr. Williams reached the scene. He said that no one knew why the delegates who had tickets wore not ad mitted to thu hall , but undoubtedly he would have some knowledge as soon as the committee that has been sent to call on Chairman Corcoian icturncd "When wo get Inside. " ho declared , "we will admit every man who has credentials" Ho warned the crowd that it must bo oiderly and that police were present to piotcct pioporty. "Glvo the doois a little dynamite , " yelled a man in the crowd hut ho was vig orously hissed nnd suppressed , cries of "Put that mm down , " arising on every side A few momenta bcforo noon , word came from the Insldo of the hall that the delegates thcru had organized a convention George Fred Wllllims then addressed the ciowd arrd said ' The state committee re fuses to opc-n these doors Wo have ix regular convention organized and In opera tion on the inside of tltla hall We are about to get another hall vhero the dele gates can gather , and will hav.1 a full re port ot tln > convention on the Inside Tire second convention will endorse the action of tlrat now In session with hi.

So far as the metrop olis Is concerned , September thus far has been remarkable for two things Plrst , the exceptionally heavy rainfall and the great gale of icstcrday , which , bchldes sweeping the coasts of thu Diltlsh Isles and doing much damage to shipping , cut off much ot London's telegraphic communication with the outside world The effect on business was notable Secondly , the death rate for London has been extraordinarily light , fallIng - Ing last week to 14 G per 1,000 Inhabitants In London as against an average of 1C 1 for every 1.000 Inhabitants In thlity-threo great towns In the country. Mr Hurr , the expert who Is examining the Drltlsh archives on behalf of the Vene zuelan Boundary commission , appointed by President CleveHnd , and his colleague , Ir Keen are still In London , though soon to take their departure In an interview with a representative oC the Associated press Mr Hurr said : "Dr. Keen and I will start for The Hague on Sundav Wo have finished our work In the British colonial office and have seen even thing they have bearing upon the Veneruclan boundary , the officials In the office producing everthing for us we asked to see. Wo also finished up at the British mu eum Friday. Wo have had several discussions with the officials rela tive to the correctness and validity of the facts adduced , even although they did not touch upon any miestlon of Importance In connection with the controversy. All the extracts from the archives which were sub mitted to us by the Drltlsh officials were revised Tor this reason as a result of our researches in London we have obtained full Information on many points that are only hinted at in the Dutch archives at The Hague. Wo have seen , for Instance , the originals of Important documents of which only copies had previously been found The blending of the London and The Hague archives thus renders each more complete" Irr reply to a rjnestlon as to what light had been thrown on the so-called Schom- burgk line b > their Investigations Mr. Hurr cald. "Many ot the documents examined are of a date long prior to Sir Schomburgk'H time " As soon as Mr. Durr has finished his re- scaiches at The Hague he will Bail direct from Holland to the United States Mr rrederic Couclert the member of the Venezuelan commission who has been In nnrope In behalf of the commission , will sail for- homo on the steamer La Cham pagne * . HATiicn or Tiin SULTAN The remarkable \loknco of the rjngllsh agitation which was conducted against the sultan Is shown by the character of the oplthots which have been hurled at him by the usually moderate speaking English people. Mr. Gladstone's epithet of the "great assassin" seems to have set the fashion , the duke of Westminster follow ing with "fiend Incarnate , " iarl Spencer preferring "representative of a diabolical and atrocious government. " The term ap plied by William Watson , the poet , "Abdul , Iho damned , " In his series of sonnets on the Armenian auestlon perhaps finds the least frequent repetition ot anj of them The press Is no whit behind In Its sensa tional dealings with the subject by the most lurid headllies In the newspapers and posters to advertise them The Chronicle Is printing scries " " a ot "murder maps" on the subject. The visit of the czar to the British Isles has revived a romantic story which was first published In England In 1S5-I ami which has been periodically revived since. The old story alleges that the C ar Paul , while once visiting In London , became enamored of a beautiful Scotch woman n Irani he met here and whoso family name was McGregor. The czar , It is Bald , took the beautiful Scotch woman back to Uussla with him where she gave birth to a son who became , In time , the Czar Nicholas I , great grandfather of the prcscut C7ar , The Scotland Yard detectives who are guarding the czar during his stay at Dal- rnoral report that ho Is enjoying the drives arranged for him there moro than anything slnco his arrival All accounts agree that the czar Is delighted with the domesticity which ho finds at Balmoral When ho leaves Portsmouth for Kranee , which will bo on October 3 , ho will bo escorted by British war ships until they meet the French war ship wnich will then take up the escort A new expedition on novel lines Is being organized at Glasgow under the leadership of explorer Murrle , the purpose of which Is to determine the exact location of the rorth pole The proposed expedition Is an- rounccd to start for the north In May.
