By Exchuhc Wire from The Associated Pi cm. Philadelphia, Sept. 2 The state con vention of the Union party will con vene in Musical Fund hull, here, at 11 o'clock tomorrow. Tho leaders of tho party expect about COO delegates, rep resenting nearly every county in the state, in attendance. A large number or delegates are already here, but the majority of them will not arrive before morning. The Indications tonight are that the Democratic state ticket nomi nated at Erie will be endorsed. There is a big minority and a strong fight will be made to have the convention either endorse Samuel W. Pennypacker, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, i)r nominate an Independent ticket. The state commitee of the party held a meeting at the Continental hotel to night and selected the oflleers of the convention. It was unanimously de cided that Thomas L. Hicks, ex-postmaster of Philadelphia, shall be the temporary chairman. Colonel George E. Mnpes, of this city, will be secretary, and V. E. Boyer, of Lebanon; ex-Rep-resentative Plummer E. Jefferls, of Chester county, and Henry Davis, of Allegheny, will be assistant secretaries. John B. Bendell, ex-representative of Chester county, offered a resolution, which was adopted with only one dis spnting vote, declaring' it to bo tho sen timent of the state committee that the convention should endorse Ttobert E. Pattison for governor and George AV. Guthrie for lieutenant governor nnd that an independent Republican should bo nominated for secretary of internal affairs. Committees on credentials and on platform were appointed. The creden tials coiiimlttee will sit all night and report to the state convention at 8.30 a. m. There was a rumor current tonight that a faction of the party may at tempt to seize the hall and a force of men was placed In the building tonight to prevent any attempt on the part of the opposition to take physical posses sion of the place. Colonel A. K. McClure. of tills city, one of the original leaders or the Union party, today sent a letter to State Chairman Frank M. Itlter, resigning as a member of the Union state commit tee. In ills letter Mr. McClure says that "the contest for delegates to tho Union state convention was made a grotesque and pitiable mockery of tho high alms and patriotic efforts of the spontaneous political upheaval that called more than ."0,000 Republicans in this city to evolution action one year ago, and that asserted Its omnipotence in the eastern and anthracite sections of tho state. "From the day that the Union state convention was called, ingenuity, trick ery and corruption have been employed oy tno machine leaders of both parties to pack tho convention for one or tho other of the two leading candidates for governor." Mr. McClure further says that ho will support Judge Penny packer for governor, GRAUMAN-STARR WEDDING. Elaborate Festivities Mark the Mar riage wjT'crantonian in Boston.

CAPTURED BY THE DEMOCRATS Union Partii Now Owned and Oper ated bu the Managers oMhe Paulson Boom. JOINT AIM IS TO CAPTURE LEGISLATURE Then They Would Proceed to Elect a Democratic Senator Plans All Laid Out Some Sensational Democratic Fakes Exposed Republican State Leaders Eully Posted as to Every Move in Boss Guffey's Little Game. Special to tho Seranton Tribune. Philadelphia, Sept. 2. What every body has been expecting has at last come to pass. The Democracy has gobbled the so-called Union party at one gulp. On Saturday last the Demo cratic state leader, Colonel James M. Guffoy, held a conference In this city with Frank M. RIter, state chairman of tho Union party, and completed the details. It is a notorious fact that Democrats have been after Union party delegates right and left for weeks. The result of this Is that -the Democratic owners or the Union party have demanded an endorsement or Pattlson and Guthrie or else they will "rough" the conven tion and make a scene. The people, in charge or the -Republican state headquarters have kept themselves fully Informed of the move ments of the Democrats in their work of capturing the independent remnant in this city and state. An agent of the party went Into Washington coun ty and offered tho delegates of the Union party there free transportation and all expenses to Philadelphia If they would vote to endorse Pattlson. In tills city the most unusual proceed ings have been resorted to to capture delegates In the interest or the Demo cratic party. A Democrat for Senator. It is now understood that the deal between the Union party promoters and the Democratic managers includes not only the indorsement of the Demo cratic state ticket, but nn arrangement for the selection of candidates for the legislature who will be pledged to vote for a Democrat for United States sena tor and the support of Democrats and Unionists of a fusion candidate for mayor of Philadelphia next spring. In the promotion of the mayoralty scheme it is understood the so-called Union party state convention will un dertake to authorize a reconstruction of the Philadelphia Union ward and city committees along the lines calcu lated to promote the deal already en tered into. This means that nn effort will be made to depose men In Phila delphia who favor Judge Pennypacker and substitute. Democrats or those who are in harmony with the Democratic scheme, ' A sample of the work they have been carrying on was furnished the other night In this- city. Members of the Union party committee of the Thir teenth ward met at Eighth street and Falrmount avenue and elected Louis Meunch and William McGowan as dele gates to the state convention, Instruct ing them to support ex-Judge Penny packer for governor. The meeting, which was presided over by Joseph Welnrlch, was Invuded by members of the Democratic ward executive com mittee, who wished to throw the sun port of the convention to Robert E. Pattlson. Falling in their efforts to stampede the convention the Democrats bolted, and held a second convention at G21 North Seventh street, where they elect ed representatives for Pattlson, A Packed Convention. The Union party has held no pri maries. A few men have gathered hero and there and they have chosen their delegates. In some cases there has been snap Judgment and In other enses two sets of delegates have been elected from the same districts, But tho Pat tlson delegates will be admitted to tho convent Jon, Of course there will bo some Penny packer men In the convention, but the Pattlson men control tho machinery of tie party by purcliuse nnd they will see to It that Pattlson has a majority In tho convention, It will be a packed gathering and tho Pennypacker dele gates will not stand a chance of being treated fairly. Some Democratic Fakes. Sensational fakes are playing a prominent part In tho. Democratic cnin palgn. A week or two ngo somebody sent Hon. Robert E. Pattlson an al leged Infernal "machine," After u lot of exploitation it turned out to be a package of harmless stuff. Last week the storv was Industri ously circulated by tho Democrats that Stato Insurance Commissioner I. W, Durham, the Philadelphia leader, who Is In Colorado, was dangerously Hi with a chronic disease, It Is not a new trick to Invent reports that this and that political leader aro not expected to live long, owing to some malady that has taken hold of them. For tho last dozen years Quay's enemies have from time to thno reported him in a dying con dition, Several years before his death, the lalo lamented Chris Mogco read In tho newspapers that ho was a dying man. And there huyo been other simi lar cases. Commissioner Durham Is In perfect health nnd will return to Phila delphia this week. Ho rides on nn average twenty-flvo miles a day, una In, a recent personal letter declared that he wits never so well n his life. NEW YORK WINS TROPHY.
