'- - i THE EVENING WOULD? MONDAY, (OCTOBER 10, 1887. \ f tV'k, tad It has bo otbor method. .Hj ' AeeoriUnff to the Republics press hi princl pl quallflcoUon for Hie high office of Becro-- ! tory of State consists in the fact that ho was : lcted by me f or n lessor 'or subordinate BR( iace,for which the Republican Senate refused 'sv to confirm him. The opposition are wolcomo t \whatever consolation or argument they Hk'':'i cttn derive from that circumstance. Tho ' RwWA ,j Democrats trill win this fall becauco the hon-- E \ R'iC hana fide trorklnpmon of the State will ' yote their ticket. They realize that whatever Kj'v..\.' beneficial legislation has been had in the post has been Mmrod mainly through the efforts WBtkhf'' of Democrats and usually against tho oppo. sitlon of tho Republicans. Tho records of tho Legislature proTO thin fact. Nearly oTcry tinotive labor measure receives tlie united '\ v. Democratic Tote and posses with the aid of n fiHffi..'', very fow Republicans, tho main body of ; them, however, voting in opposition. Every tfi laboring man who has watched tho proceed. ing of ihe Legislature for several years past n(; knows this to bo the truth. The '''. various third 'parties whloh have mid. \ denly sprang up are not engineered by genuine workingmen, but by ambitious .politicians, ministers, priests, lawyers and professional .men. The Knights of 'Labor and other bonit fide and republic labor &yHW$' organizations tako little stock in theso new political movements. The laboring man wanti practical measures of relief, not more theories which it would tako a century to force, and he is satined with tho provisions of HW'. , the Democratic platform this fall. tT' \ the Republicans claim that they \Mrengthenedtheir party by the course of i' 1 their Legislature last winter. What do you - Way to that V The Republicans always claim every- -' thing. If they havo strengthened thomselvcs It must have been by something other than eir legislation. Perhaps it was by thbir course in referenoo to confirming oppoint-S- w tssWt'r j5 monts, or possibly they strcngthenoiT them. ' aolvos when they refused to confirm Mr. Arkell. a reputablo citizen of ability, who ( would have made an excellent Railroad Com. missioner, bet who was sacrificed at the '4 .Stance of the Quarantine Ring. .Perhaps HK J . they strengthened themselves rejecting ' 0hael Rlckard, the candidate of the ' railroad workingmen for the somo office. Then, again, they may havo V acquired additional strength whon thoy '' jected Mr. Buokbee, the candidate of all the \u k Knights of Labor of the State. They proba. bly secured the favor of the formers by joctlng William A. Armstrong, the farmers' Ifi. candidate and the honorod head of tho Qrang. s organization of the State. They showed their affection for the sol. fHftfi aid's by 'rejecting Col. Fred Grant, also the gallant one-legg- veteran, Gen. fiiokles, and Gen. Bnmuro and the faown Kings County soldier, Jas. W. Webb ; B'-- t all theso things may .have strengthened the Republican party, but . I do not believe it. fSB' ': We 'ball win this fall because the Republican Germans aro utterly disgruntled by the vacil-HBh- ''' \ '\ting course of the Republican party upon l the questions of personal liberty and tompor-HjRflBt-- Y i \A&oe.\ t ,f \What about tbp renomination of Fresl-S- '' :'' dent Cleveland noit year V '' \It is not wise to attempt to cross a bridge L1' , tmt\ yu Got to it.

The SVL' Presidential question of 1888 will settlo itself at the proper time. Until then I havo t' nothing to say. The Democratic, party of ' this Btato has only one present duty before it, and that is to aohieve success in the pend-HBffi- p' ing election, and every true Democrat will fSBfrt - now elert himself to manfully do his duty.

In the General Term of th Supreme - ' Cotirt to-d- Presiding Justice Van Brunt and Justices Daniels and Bartlett handed down an opinion affirming the order of the W .. Special Term denying a motion for a per-- emptory 'mandamus in tho aotion of the Bk United Labor Party against the Board of Police for the appointment of the fifth oleo- - on inspector from that party. In tho opinion, which is per curiam, Judge BE' Daniels says: \If the allegation that the United Labor party as a political party had cast upward of 00,000 votes at the last eloo. RfVtf tion had been established beyond reasonable ' ground of controversy, then tho motion for a peremptory writ of mandamus directing the Board of Police Commissioners to appoint tha additional Inspectors from that party \would hove been successful.\ Tho opinion , continues, that, as this was not dono, on issue '\ of fact is necessarily created which no court, without the consent of all the parties, ran - consider andxleclde otherwiso than bv a for- - mal trial. - Concluding the Court says: \ In order to dotermlne to which party or organization the . additional inspectors in each district can bo. '' given it mnBt first be ascertained and do- - -- .' iermined whieh of the contesting parties is BI, the party, if either of them is, by which these 60,000 votes were given, and SPlH until that fact 1b established to the eatisf;otlon of a majority of the Board of Po- - '' uoe or to the satisfaction of the Court upon tills application no authority to make any appointment of these inspectors exists either .in the Board of Police or any member there. of. If it was to neither of the three parties, nW&f ' then it seems to follow that no additional in. spectors can bo appointed. Hktj \ Ordinarily the case would present an issue to be tried by a jury, but the parties to tho Bt ' .contest have been permitted by the law to waive a trial by jury, and to consent either Hnab' to a reference or to a trial before the Court.\ e Court says that tho case must .' proceed at the earliest possible BHK;'r moment before a Circuit Judge p&J&iu. who will be selected in order that whichever - I V 5'-tPar- ' entitled to the inspectors may have them and the inspectors allowed to act and if; , protect the interests of their constituents.

It was an idea born in ono moment and carried into oxooution tho next. The fair begins its third wcok to.day. Eaeh day slnco its opening has added to its attractions, till tho great pavilion is a wilder, ness of things beautiful and things pictur- esque. On Saturday night alono 7,000 peoplo visitod tho exhibition, which means $700 door receipts, while tho dimes wore lured from the pockets of the 7,000 by ovcry manner of device which gonitis could invent uud pretty maidens practise. Thero is Mary and her littlo lamb, which was to go to tho winner in a rafilo. Mary is still the samoswoot littlo goldon-hai- r minx, but her lamb has \multiplied into a small flook, and thero would bo dancer of mistak- ing her for Littlo Bo.Pcop, only sho sits so demurely by her fold that no ono could imagine that sho hod lost any of her sheep.

This has roused tho enthusiasm of the \ Parishoners,\ and thoy will purchase tho magnifloont llfo-siz- o photo, graph of the Doctor, whioh is exhibited near tho Madison avenuo entrance, and send it to Father Reilly. Thero will bo an entertainment of somo sort each evening of this woek at tho fair, and on Saturday thero will be an auction of the goods that aro left.

An amateur band composed of war veterans will alternate with McAuliffo's Orchestra on Wednesday night, and tho voting contests will go on with tho usual spirit overy night, the polls closing on Friday niRht. In the canvass for President the fight has been virtually reduced to one between Blaine and Henry George, with tho man from Malno a littlo in the lead. One night last week a stronger stepped up to thu polling place and, laying a crisp fifty-doll- bill on tho countor, said ho had that amount to deposit for Blaine votes. The figures 600 woro marked on tho blackboard and Mr. Blalno seemed to have a sure thing for a long timo. But now a man has como forward who says George must win if it takes his night shirt, and ho stayed Saturday night till 11 o'clock, dropping in a dollar ovory timo any one olso attempted to boom Mr. Blnino, After ho had gono tho Blaino adherents demonstrated that \boodle counts\ by casting enough votes at 10 cents each to advance their candi- date to the front again. Tho voto now stands 7C6 for Blaine, 727 for Goorgo, ISO for Hill, 25 each for Cleveland and Powderly, and a solitary vote for tho cold-wat- man, St. John. The large silk American flog given to Dr. McGlyunbyhis parishioners on tho reoont occasion of the twenty .fifth anniversary of his priesthood, has been presented by him to the fair and It will go to tho most popular assembly district organization of tho United Labor party. Tho Twentieth District is now ahead with 205 votes and the Seventh Dis- trict is next. Of course The Would is still in the lead as tho best newspaper, in which contest tho winner will receive a handsomely engrossed and framed testimonial. Miss Hattie Landau, the \ Rebecca at the Well,\ is still the most popular lady, with 281 votes to her credit. Miss Lillie Frolke, of the Knights of Labor booth, is next. The card of tho Republican party with the sign of a silk stocking shows that 383 pennies havo been east into tho ballot-bo- x for it, while the Tammany Indian on tho Democratic card claims 285 j the Prohibition card sign, a bottle and two glassos reads 126, whilo tho United Labor party, which has for emblem two American lings with crossed staffs, huB polled 3,412 penny votes. , Chief Fisher is ahead in tho contest among tho firemen on the question of popularity, with Chief McCabo a good second. Thero is a largo preponderance of votes in favor of the enforcement of tho Eight. Hour law, and womnn suffragists havo evidently followed the placarded injunction to \vote early and often.\ Capt, Thomas Reilly, of the Nineteenth Precinct, leads In.the canvass for the police, man's bodge of silver, tho gift of Mrs. 'Hackett to the fair, and Capts. Thomas M. Ryan and Thomas Killilca are close behind. The badge is n Telle of the stage. David Garriok owned it, and afterwards it was worn by J. H. Haokett in \ Hamlet.\ One of the busiest as well a the most en- tertaining stands in the fair is the book stall under the management of Mr. O'FUherty, of the Fourteenth Assembly District, and Dr. AnketelL Julius Glaser has charge of the works of Henry George, and he has already cold 8,100 copies of \ Progress and Poverty,\ and over 5,000 ccplos of the various works of tho leaders of united labor.

Mrs.\ Henry George and her two daughters, in charge of one of the booths, has received much attention, and one of tho curiosities of tho fair Is to bo found here. It consists of a heart cut out of a fiat piece of black wal- nut and nn arrow of pine, whioh pierces tho heart. A bantam cook and hen were given to tho fair .and became the \ Anti-Pover- ty auxiliaries \ tp Mrs. George's booth. Little Miss Annie George has made the couple her special charge, and now \ Birdie \ has laid a cunning little egg. \ Dickie,\ her hus- band, made a great fuss over tho aohieve. ment of his little-wif- e. A fabulous price was affcred for the y egg by a New Jorsey farmer, but Mrs. George will keep It as a memento of the fair. Farmer Williams, of Fair View, N. J., visited the fair the other day, and now he has become an onthusiastio convert to the United Labor party. He brought two magnificent bouquets to Mrs. George on his second visit. To.day a young priest stopped hesitatingly beforo the Fourth avenue entranoe to the Garden, and looked wistfully in. Then he walked on, stoppod, turned and retraced his steps. He addressed the man at the door, saying : \ I want to give somothlng for the caiiso.\ \ Go right In,\ said tho doorman. \ No; I can't do that,\ said the priest hnr. riodly and looking uneasily up and down the nvenue. \ But hero is 95. Put that into the box for me,\ Then ho hurried away.

P., and Mr. Joseph Pu- litzer and Mr. R. M. Walters, of tho presenta- tion committee, has been given to the fair and will bo sold at auction. During tho wook five of the Assembly dis- trict organizations will visit the fair in a body each evening, and in faot, thero is no sign of a lessoning of interott. The rent of tho garden is 91,000 a wook. and tho cost of gas, eloctrio lights, mnsio, help, Ac, is about $2,000 more, but in spite of this huge expense of $8,000 a week, the Anti-Pover- Society will find itself richer by many thousands of dollars by tho venture. THE OLD MERCHANTS' BOLD. A Favorite Itrnort Years Before the Aster Home was Built. The announcement of the sale of the old Merchants' Hotel, Nos. 39 and 41 Cortlondt street, recalls the old days whon the mer- chants of tho West and South used to mako their semi-annu- trips to Now York to pur-oha- goods of tho great wholesale houses. ,The Merchants' Hotel was in those days a much larger and more pretentious hostelry than it now is, and covered the two lots next adjoining on tho sido toward Broadway. It was a favorito resort for the merchnnts from the sections namod who flocked here in thousands. Theso woro the days before the man with samples came into existence and went sour, rying through tho country, selling to conn try rotallors more goods than they want through tho modlum of his persuasive and breaking the hearts of the ohambennalds and dining-roo- girls right and left. Thon the Merchants' Hotel ranked among tho first in tho city, but tho maroh of prog- ress has loft it only its history, one-ha- lf of its formor capacity, a fow boarders, somo. transient guests who drop in on their way from the Cortlandt street ferry, and others who patronizo it becauso their fathers and grandfathers stopped thero fifty years ago. These last usually want to see tho register or tne hotol to study the ohlrography of their ancestors, and are a daily bother to Landlord Samuel Colo, who has managed the establishment for a year past. His immediate predecessor was H. E. Bil- lings, who, for nine years, welcomed guests to tho d public house, ne was tho successor of William Schonck and his partner, Mr. Clark, who for twenty-eig- ,, ars conducted tho hotel. Mr. Muirhead, a Jursoymau, was the first proprietor. Dr. Joseph W. Saul, of Baltimnro, who is now about eighty years of oge, and who has stopped at the hotel for ntty-thre- o years, when in tho city, laughs as ho relates how the knowing ones used to gather at the Mer- chants' when Astor was building his hotol and tell each other what a fool Astor wan, and how ho was ruining himsolf financially by building \ such a big barrack of a eastlo so far up town.\ It never would bo filled, they baid, and would stand ovor as a monument to tho folly of its bulldor. Tho Doctor sayB that those of the croakers who have lived to see their error, have changed tho opinion so fully expressed in tho Thirties. Bonfires of T.envri at Riverside. Since the first touches of frost the lcavos in the porks havo begun to make their annual litter. Although many of the trees in Cen- tral Park aro still green, lcavos have fallen bo rapidly within tho past two or threo days that tho Superintendent has put to work the full complement of men, who aro now busily en- gaged in raking tho lawns and woody slopes from Fifty-nint- h to Ono Hundred and Tenth street. Thoy gather tho fallen leaves into big, fragrant heaps, and when a sufficient quantity has been collected thoy will be carted off somewhero and destroyed. For a great many yours past it has been customary to burn the leaves over on tho west sido of the Park. There was so much complaint last season, however, from the residents along Eighth avenue on account of tho suioke and dirt which was caused by con- suming this enormous quantity of loaves in tho very heart of tho city that the authori- ties havo ordered that all the leaves from the Park bo taken up to Riverside to be burned. Tho people up in the goat district need not now be apprehensive of any more prairie fires such as havo alarmed them in previous years when the big bonfires were in full blast.

The street placldlr stsnda the announcement of Northern Pscldo management's activity In Its new road venture from Devil's Lake, Dak., to Ilawley, Minn., for which Boston capital furnishes 15,600,000. It It not Jast possible that marked dlatrnst of Jay Gould's n methods of absorption man-ceuv- re have padded the' situation so that the big transfer fell noiselessly, In fact, somewhat flat, not to say stale T , The \Street \thinks so. The Wall street puzzle to outsiders: Why has not the Grant I), and a telegraph deal influenced the stock market to a greater extent than It has 7 The answer Is simple, comprehensive and accur- ate, viz.: Discounted by anticipation. Too much \ talkee talkie \ in advance. Henry Clews has changed his bontonnlire from a white to a red rote. Trading for the \ac- count,\ Saturday and the other new- fangled innovations of the street have chronically. It la feared, Irritated his entire make-u- p, both In point of disposition and, decoration. How about the bol) conference held last Saturday nlxht T The market Is steady, but the bears are vigorous and vicious. Harvey Dursnd talks of a \ sure thing,\ and says that long stocks being emptied out from all directions mutt tell. As usual, howsver, a diversity of opinion exists, and for once conservatism talis bulllshly. Chief Auditor Hosford has prepared an elaborate argument In favor of making trading for the ac- count at onoe the regular way method of Kxchange transactions. It Is to bo presented to the Board at a meeting to be held on Wednesday afternoon, and a petition, already In active circulation and signed by over fifty Wall street' Crrai, will back it up. Two hundred Arm names are expected to graoe the document, which will precipitate a battle be- tween Exchange conservatUlsnt and liberalism well worth watching. The Grain Market. The remarkably heavy movement of spring wheat In the Northwest during the put few days, and rapidly accumulating stocks in the elevators st St. Paul, Minneapolis snd Duluth has made the speculative trades both at Chicago and In the local market very bearlah In temper. Lait Saturday the receipts at Minneapolis alone were iW.QOo bushels, of which only 47,000 bushels were shipped. At the same time, while the total stocks In elevators and Min- nesota and Dakota on October' 1, 1SS9, were 8.933,00o bushels, at the correspond- ing date this year the amount in store was only 1S.519.93T bushela. The speculative conditions, however, at the preient time, prevent this fact from being regarded as a strong bull point, and for this reason the markets, both at Mew York and Chicago, opened heavy this morning at lower prices. At the West December wheat, the principal specula- tive option, sold on the curb at .IV. in the local market trading was fairly active at 8i;( for the December option. There seemed to be sn excess of selling orders In the market, the exporters and Wall street Arm, while the scalpers were busy hammering prices and making large offerings. The opening prloe here represents a decline of Vo. as compared with the closing prices of Saturday. The London and .Liverpool advices this morning were unchanged, snd showed dull, spiritless mar-ket- i, and the cables brought a good many selling orders whleu were worked off during th morning, The traders are watching the mova.nent very closely, and a (,rit deal depenila upon whether the priseat receipt at pctaary market are kept up to the firesent flrurr. Unless there Is a substantial which seems Improbable from the present prospect, there is every .reason to anticipate a, famch lower rang of price in the near future.

Tho Cotton Market, The early cable from Liverpool this morning re- ported a firm market, with a good demand for the speculative lines, the sales at opening being 11,000 bales for speculation and 1,000 for export, and the receipts 1,00 bsles. all of which was American. The quotations In the Liverpool spot msrket were 6 for middling uplands and ss-i- s for low middling. The foreign market closed for spot at an advance of for Orleans and future sales of 8,400 bales, whilo futures closed steady at the early advance, with no tenders. In the local market there was a fair business done st the opening call In the option line, but the temper of the trading was bearish. Futures wero quoted easy at the opening at .I7 a f.M for Oc- tober delivery: 1. 98 a 9.99 November: 9.M a 9.89 December: .Ma 9.84 January: 9.44 a 9.48 Feb- ruary: 9.Bia9.B8 March; 9.61 a 9. ei April; 9.ea a 9. 69 May, and 9. 7s a . n June. Sales, ,eoo bales. Later in the afternoon wheat was weak and trad- ing was very dull at a lower rang of prioes. The highest figure, reached for December wheat was 63o. it wss reported that M,000 bushels were sold for export. The Petroleum Market. The oil market seems nnable to shake itself out of the lethargy Into whloh it has fallen, and the opening this morning showed that speculative cliques sre averse to doing anything which will look like the Inauguration of a serious campaign. Prices show the same old range and during the greater part of the forenoon variations were con- fined within the smallest fractional limits, the opening quotation being 8Kc. , snd the range being 66XC to isvo. just before noon an effort on the part of some of the bull room trsders to oreste a little breese by circulating some bullish well news, was suoceaitnl In whoop- ing op prioes to 70c , sn advance of lVc ,and for a time there seemed to be prospect of a very lively market The boom, however, was short-live- d and soon spent Its strength, snd within an hour prioes began to recede again.
