THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION.
Lively Sisiion Held and Almost a Riot
at On Time.
In pursuance of a regular cull the
Democratic borough convention met in
the town hall last evening to place in
nomination candidates for the ensuiiiK
cleotion. The convention was called
to order by Chairman Patrick Sweeney
Mt 8 o'clock. The following delegates
Were recognized and given seats in the
convention: First ward, M. Healey;
Second ward, George Hently; Third
ward, Thomas Lung; Fourth ward,
Frank Daley; Fifth ward, Daniel COD
nell; Sixth" ward. Thomas Devine;

ruau, contested by M. Long;buev; Sev
enth ward, Joseph Heap; Kitfhth ward,
William Liuneu; Ninth Ward, Thomas
Corcorau, Tenth ward, J. J. Mcllale;
Eleventh ward, Patrick Corcoran.
Considerable excitement prevailed
for a lime over a contest between
" bourns Coleman and Martin Laugh
ntjr, of the Secoud district of the Sixth
ward, who each claimed to be regular
ly elected. A similar condition of af
fairs existed between Patrick Cum
miugs aud Patrick Corcoran, of the
Eleventh ward. After considerable
wrangling, to which the friends of
neither candidate would yield, thu
chair decided not to recogniz- the
Second district of the Sixth ward, it
was therefore ordered stricken from
tho list The outer room was packed
to overflowing with citizens. Concern
ing the seating of Patrick Camming!,
of the Eleventh ward, in preference to
Patrick Corcoran, an episode happened
that was not down on tue programme.
Friends of Corcorau, smarting under
what the termed an injustice
and a direct Ming at them, bided
their time. It came. Finding the door
ajar for a second the crowd rushed In,
headed by Mr Corcoran aud John II.
Mnllin. All was coufusion and a geu
eral uproar followed. Fears of a
small siege now took the plaee of ques
tion of parii imentary milages in the
minds of the delegates for the time
being and were only allayed by Chair
man Sweeney who, in a voice suffi
cient to be beard above the din and
uproar, prevailed upou the intruders to
behave and they would be giviug a
hearing. John Mulliu addressed the
convention by saying bo bat voiced the
lentimeuts of the voters of the
Eleventh ward when he stated Mr.
Corcoran was tho regularly elected
delegate aud not Mr. Cumminge. He
said such proceedings as characterized
the convention's action was never
heard of and was not the work of
Democrats. To ratify Mr. Cuminings
and sucririce Mr. Corcorau would bo a
perilous act that the future alone
E J. Barrettspoke in a similar man
ner by saying while he was perfectly
sail-:-', at whatever the convention
would do. he, like his brother Demo
crats, did not prorjose to stand by and
see such an imposition perpetrated.
In view of these remarks it was finally
ordered that Mr. Corcoran should be
seated, and the name of Mr. Cummings
The next order of business was taken
np and resulted in the nomination of
the following ticket; Burgess, Thomas
Maloney; auditor, John E Dempsey;
jigh constable, M. Deinpsey: tax re
ceiver, E. J McDonnell, Chairman
iweeney arose and thanked the con
rention for the courtesies shown him
while he had the honor to preside over
its deliberations. He supplemented
his remarks by saying he was aware of
the intention of certain delegates to
onst him before making up the ticket,
but was glad to say they were a littie
previooi, for under the rules govern
ing the office of chairman he had the
power to hold over until the work of
the convention was conclnded.
M. N, Donnelly ws then elected
chairman and in a brief speech thanked
the members for the honor conferred.
John E Dempey was elected secretary.
Tho convention then took up for ratifi-cat-.jn
the nomination of either P. A.
Sweeney who was nominated for school
director by the regular Democratic
caucus, and Patrick Corcoran who was
similarly nominated for councilman of
the Ninth ward, or M. N. Donnellv and
John McNamara who were nominated
respectively for councilman and school
director by a "romp" convention. The
convention by a majority vote indorsed
the latter named. An adjournment
was then taken.

Buck, tend to confirm the original be

showing that he had been struck on
the head with a blunt instrument set
tles all but one question, and that Is,
who struck him? No olue was devel

trace of the murderer was made.
It is a noteworthy coincidence that
almost on this identical spot where
Waterman was murdered, years ago
occurred another tragedy, that in
which Jesse Phelps killed William
Hoot. Phelps was not convicted of
the murder, but it is thought the mur
