rsrJtCIAL TELEGRAM TO Till DISPATCH-S
New Yokk, October 10. The County
Committee of tbe County Democracy were
too many for the seats at to-night's meeting
in the small hall of Cooper Union. Colonel
Murphy's report from tbe Executive Com
mittee of the dates for the nominating con
ventions was the principal business of the
evening, but the resolution indorsing the
State ticket gave the opportunity for an im
portant declaration of the spirit of the. or
ganization on the matter of union with.
Tammany on any nomination.
The expressions of all hands, when not on.
the floor, agreed with what was said on the
floor, and was in effect that if there was any
union Tammany would have to be the one
to ask for it. After routine matters had
been disposed of, Colonel John O'Byrne
offered this resolution:
PLEDGING TAETT SUPrOET.
That the New York County Democracy, Jn
county committ e assembled, hereby ratifies
and contSTii the nominations for State officers,
and approvis tho principles enunciated by the
convention of the Democratic party in this
State recently, held in Syracuse, and pledges
its support thereto.
Colonel O'Byrne spoke of the opposition)
in convention of the County Democracy
delegates to some of the nominees, but said
that in-party fealty the organization would
bow to the potential "will of the majority
and come to tbe support of the ticket with
an honest spiri- and a hearty good wilL He
evoked enthusiastic applause, and indicated
the warmth of th anti-Tammany feeling
by the remark: "I trust that this is
THE LAST CONCESSION
we will be called upon to make to any
party, or to any faction in the year 1889.
"We will wave the banner of the County
Democracy in the November breezes and no
longer flirt with any other faction."
The resolution was adopted with no
further speech making, as was one offered
and advocated by Colonel E. T. "Wood,
referring to the lack of accommodations in
the public schools of the city, especially in
the Twelfth, Twenty-second and Twenty
fourth wards, and calling upon
the proper authorities to at once
build more school houses. The
talt about Tammany after the meeting
was vague and guarded, but reliance was
plainly placed on a citizens' movement, in
support of which all elements opposed to
Tammany would unite. Indeed, it was
said that tbe arrangements for
THE CITIZENS' MEETING
were in progress and had been for several
days. Its projectors rely upon the import
ance of the judiciary nominations to arouse
public interest in the movement. As one
of the County Democracy men said: "The
fight will be against the grabbing proclivi
ties of Tammany, and against the judiciary
.i.n F Ihn.a i.liuuu. aI.!-!- .1
" v uuk u jjiuucs wuica tney are
scheming to keep possession of."
The probabilities are all in favor of the
truth of the talk about such a movement.
The Tammany men teem to have au inkling
of it, and to be satisfied that there is some
thing in it. Before the counties' meeting
Richard Croker, the Tammany chieftain
"The question of aunion of the Democratic
forces ot this city, as far as Tammany is
concerned, will be left to the decision
of our County Convention. If it is
then deemed advisable a conference
committee will be appointed. If it is not,
the -convention will proceed to the nomina
tion of a ticket that no self-respecting citi
zen will be able to find any fault with. My
own opinion is that there are
MANX BAD rEATUEES
about these unions. The voters always sus
pect that they are the result of a deal. And
when one side has to take candidates named
by the other their records are sometimes not
so carefully considered as if they were run
nine with less strength behind them, and
improper nominations are more likely to
result I have been told that the opposi
tion to Tammany has taken the form of a
combination, including Republicans and
"The Bepublicans will concede anything
else if they can gain a close district or two
for the State Senate, or add to the party
representation from the Assembly dis
tricts of this city. In the Sixth
Assembly district, they say, the particulars
of tbe deal are settled. The Republicans
are to get the Assemblymen and the County
Democracy the Aldermen if they can com
bine strength enough to beat Tammany."

The Senator paid a hich compliment to
Governor Foraker as a man and soldier,
and his administration had been a clean
and economical one, and that he was entitled
to another election and the people would so

nounced the Mill bill as sectional and
said it struck at 100 Northern industries to
about 20 in the South, and made a strong
plea for protection which had made our
country the grandest and most piosperous
on the face of the earth.
He spoke of Mr. Campbell as a gentle
man of merit and ability, but as a man who
led a party whose triumph this fall would
bring injury to Ohio and set back the cause
of reform throughout the nation.

tSFECIA TELEOIUJC TO THE DISPATCH.
Newyoek, October 10. There was a
breezy time in the Board of Electrical Con
trol this afternoon. Mayor Hewitt declared
that expert "Wheeler's certificate of safety
should be possessed by every electric light
company before they turned on their cur
rents to-night Mr. Wheeler protected that
it would be necessary to inspect every
inch of the 1,000 miles of wires in
the city to certify them, though he
believed them safe. The Mayor closed by
throwing the responsibility on "Wheeler.
The lights burned in tbe city just as usual.
Mr. "Wheeler made no attempt to compel
the companies to shut off the lights. He
said he had no power to do so.
The day before the Subway Commissioners
notified the companies not to use circuits
where the insulation was imperfect Mr.
Wheeler did not think himself author
ized to take any further stejis
and said that the companies ran
their full circuits to-nicht at their own risk.
The companies do not consider that the
Mayor has the right to order their
circuits closed when the city has
not provided subways sufficient for
their wires. Thev nrenared iniunctions
'after to-day's meeting, which, by morning,
win be ready to be served upon the
Mayor and the city, enjoining the
interfering with the aerial circuits.
They will not serve the injunctions unless
the Mayor takes some radical steps, as they
wish to keep on as good terms with the city
authorities as possible.

"Washington, October 10. The latest
report concerning the appointment of a suc
cessor to Corporal Tanner as Commissioner
of Pensions is that ex-Congressman Steele,
of Indiana, is to be called to the front. The
rumor probably arose from the fact that
Steele is in the city. It can hardly be true
that Harrison contemplates bestowing an
other office upon an Indiana man. In fact
a gentleman who talked with the President
a day or two ago on the subject of the Pen
sion Commissionership says that the suc
cessful candidate must come from a section
of the country remote from Hoosierdom.
The President fully realizes the fact that
relatives of the family and citizens of the
Presidental State have had about all that
belonss to them, and that hereafter outside
States must be given a chance.
Steele is a fairly good manfor the place.
He served throughout the warin an Indiana
regiment, going up tbe ladder from private
to Lieutenant Colonel, afterward was a
Lieutenant in the regular army, and sat
four terms in Congress. He was for several
years a member of the Committee on Mili
tary Affairs, and had he been elected to the
Futy-first Congress would have probably
been made chairman of that committee.
Steele and Harrison are very good friends,
and no doubt the President would like jto
appoint him if he could consistently do so.
Those who pretend to know the Presidentsi
mind, however, sav that Frank Hiscock's
candidate, Major Poole, of Syracuse, is still
ahead in the race and that he has the best,
possible show of winning.

decidedly interesting throughout.
rSFXCIAX. TEtEGEAM TO TBX DISPATCH.!
Philadelphia, October 10. The ses
sion to-day of the State Convention of the
"Women's Christian Temperance "Union was
breezy and interesting from the time Presi
dent Swifkrapped it to order at 10 o'clock
until the adjournment at dark. "The par
tisan wing," as the advocates of uncondi
tional prohibition are called, seemed to hold
the balance of power, and ran the business
pretty much as they pleased, concluding tbe
day's work by electing their candidates for
office by arousing majority.
There was almost incessant whispering
among tbe delegates, despite repeated ad
monitions from the Chair, and it wa almost
impossible to hear any but the loudest
speakers. Mrs. Swift made frequent ap
peals for order, but as the excitement inci
dent to electioneering increased, the con
fusion became more and more dense.
Finally, amotion was made that no one be
allowed to wait: through the aisles except
the pages. This started a hot debate, in
consequence of which the motion was tabled
and th: business continued.
a vest lively session.
The morning session opened with prayer
by Mrs. Frances Barnes, ot New York, and
the consideration of committee reports was
resumed. The Executive Committee re
ported in favor ot publishing 00 copies of
the President's address and Mrs. Palmer's
report on legal work lor distribution. The
number was, on motion, increased to 5,000
copies and the report adopted.
The first real trouble of the convention
arose when Mrs. H. H. Forrest, chairman
of the Committee on Credentials, took the
platform and commenced to read the list of
delegates. When (Jh ester was reached an
objection was made to the presence of a
delegate representing Schuylkill and Down
ingtown. The claim was made that the
combined membership of the two places
was not sufficient to entitle them to repre
sentation. Mrs. Forrest declared that suf
ficient members had' been paid for to entitle
those places to a delegate, but the discus
sion became so warm that the chair was
compelled to decide the argument out of
order at that time. Lebanon county
another bone of contention.
Mrs. Forrest stated that as no dues had
been paid by that county it was not en
titled to a delegation. The lady represent
ing the county hotly explained that her
constituents had exhausted their funds in
working for prohibition, and she waVn-vler
the impression that she -was entitled to-uad-mission
on that ground. She was finally
given the privileges of the floor, but de
barred from voting. Luzerne county was
insulted when its delegation was reduced
from ten to six because of the amount of
dues paid in. Mrs. McCool, ot the delega
tion, explained that the fault was with one
of the local unions which had neglected to
pay up, and the excess delegates were given
all the privileges of the floor except that of
So many counties were shown to have sent
more delegates than the amount oi dues
paid up warranted, that finally telegrams
were sent to the various county treasurers
for figures, and all the delegates were re
ceived, but that action was not taken until
many hot words had passed and it was time
DELEGATES BECOME EXCITED.
After recess the discussion agaiu waxed
warm, exceptions having been taken to
some portions ot the minutes as they were
read. The delegation question was brought
up again, and Chester county's positive
claim to have paid up all required does re
sulted in the treasurer being ordered to
make a careful examination of her books.
She looked hurriedly through her accounts,
and announced that a mistake in regard to
Chester had been discovered.
This brought the other barred-out dele
gates to their feet, and for a time the excite
ment was at fever heat Each delegation
insisted that if there was a mistake in one
case there must have been in others, and the
faulty accounts were severely criticised,
though all the ladies insisted that nothing
personal was contained in their remarks.
A BABY BEPBESENTATIYE.
In the midst of tbe confusion, Mrs. Gib
son presented a baby, 6 months old, as a
delegate from Philadelphia. This action
distracted the attention of the excited dele
gates, and while they were admiring the
little one the report of tho Committee on
Credentials was adopted, leaving many del
egates uncertain as to whether or not they
were entitled to sit in tbe convention.
The election of officers being the next
order of business, there was a renewal of
the excitement, and electioneering com
menced in earnest. Candidates were plenti
ful, no less than six nominations being
made for tbe .Presidency, but Airs. Mary a.

unpleasant ending of tho voyage in which

that lasted 12 hours, had helped make the
voyage unpleasant, too. She left the

not less than three feet in the mud and the
tide was running ebb. A fleet of tugs went
down to haul her off at the morning tide.
By 7 o'clock the tugs had made fast to the

other distinguished personages were present.
NitsvYobk, October 10. No larger as
semblage ever gathered within the walls of
Cooper Union than was present there this
evening at the services in memory of
the late Congressman Samuel Sulli
van Cox. There were present men
.and, women not only from the district
he represented, but from all parts of the
city. Among those on the platform were
ex-President Cleveland, Mayor Grant, ex
Mayors Hewitt and Cooper, General Sher

of Washington; Senator Aldrich, George
W. Curtis and John A. Cookerill. Mr

the ei-pbesident's audeess.
It Is peculiarly fit and proper that among the
tribute, paid to the worth and usefulness of
Samuel B, Cox, the most hearty and; sincere
shoald flow from the hearts of his Congres
sional constituents. These be served faith
fully and wijlj and they were honored by
the honor of, his life. It was as tbeir
chosen public sirvant that he gathered fame,
and exhibited to the entire country the strength
and tbe brightness ot the hue of American
statesmanship. It was while ha still served
them that he xdied. All his fellow
citizens mourn his death and speak in
praise of his characterand his achievements in
public life: but bis constituents may well feel
that the affliction of his death Is nearer to them
than to others, by so much as thev are entitled
to a greater share of pride in all that he
I should not suit the part allotted to me on
this occasion if I were to speak at length of the
many traits of character within my personal
knowledge that made your friend and
mine tbe wise and efficient legislator,
the useful and patriotic citizen and the kind
and generons man. These things constitute
a theme upon which his fellow countrymen
Ioto to dwell, and they will be presented to you
to-night in m6re eloquent terms than I can
command. I shall not, however, forbear re
membering, the fact that your reDresentatire,
in all his public career and in hi relations to
legislation, was never actuated by a
coeeupt ob selfish
interest Bis zeal was born oi publio spirit,
and tho motive of his labor was tbe publio
good. He i was never found among thoso
who cloak their efforts for personal gala and
advantage beneath the disguise of dis
interested activity for the welfare of the
people. These are pleasant things for his
friends to remember to-night; and they are
without donbt the things upon which rest the
greatest share of tbe honor and respect which
his memory exacts from his fellow citizens.
utwhilewelfeae contemplate tbe value of un
selfish public usefulness, We cannot restrain a.
reflection; which has a somber coloring.
w nat is tne condition oi tne times wnen wo
justly and fairly exalt the memory of a de
ceased publio servant because he was true and
honest and faithful to bis trust T Are we main
taining a safe standard of public duty when
the existence of these virtues, instead of being
general, are exceptional enough to causo con
gratulation,? All public servants should be as true and hon
est and faithful as the man whom we mourn to
night. I beg you to take home with you among
the reflections which this occasion shall awaken
an appreciation or tho troth that if we are to
secure for ourselves all the blessings of onr
free Institutions we must better apprehend
the interest we have at stake In their scrapu.

whom we trust inpublio office, a more rigid ad
