A T a lk O v er th e G o v ernorship Situa­ tion—B ro o k ly n 's B ig Conven­ tio n D e legation. P lan s a r e u n d e r way to make Richard C roker’s victo r y a t Saratoga com p lete by having: Kings* delegation ignore Controller Coler’s nam e ’’ in the convention a t Saratoga next week. T w o .of t h e delegates who will go from Brooklyn are responsible for th is state­ m ent. It w a s said th is m o rning’ t h a t all would be arranged before the convention con­ vened so th a t th e r e would n o t -be a possibility of stam p e d ing the m en from Kings, should such a thing be attem p ted. In fact, i t is deem ed best by those who op­ pose Mr. Coler as a candidate to arran g e so th a t n o t even a vote m ay be cast for th e Con­ tro ller by any of the delegates from K ings if this Is possible. In o r d e r th a t th e plans may n o t m is­ carry a caucus had been arranged, w h en, it Is said, each delegate w ill be pledged against Coler. T h is caucus, according to the tw o dele­ gates referred to above, will be held a t the Grand Union H o tel, S a ratoga, either Monday night or T u e sday m o rning. If the plans are carried o u t to the letter, th a t caucus will tak e *place a t 10 o’clock Monday night. T h a t the delegates should be pledged be­ fore t h e convention opens is deemed advisable by th e friends of Mr. C roker is probably due to some ta l k th a t w a s circulated yesterday. Several of th e delegates w ere bold enough to express th e i r friendship for Mr. Coler w h ile visiting th e W illoughby street auc­ tion room s. A delegate elected in one of the outlying d i s tr icts w e n t so fa r as to sta t e to an E a g le rep o r ter th a t he intended to vote fo r Coler and h e had every reason to believe th a t o t h e r delegates would do likewise. T h e re were few delegates to the s t a t e con­ vention at th e auction room s to-day, but those who did call had nothing to say about Coler, and all knew about th e proposed cau­ cus to be held a t the Grand Union H o tel. Some of th e delegates are not at all pleased because they wdll not be perm itted to vote for Coler under th is plan, but they w ill doubt­ less sw allow th e pill, b i t t e r as it is. Said one of t h e num b er th is afternoon: *Tt is all a m istake to tu r n down Coler; he is the strongest candidate t h a t can head the state ticket.” n u r p h y an d M cGuire M eet to Discuss th e Outlook. The chief political incident in M a n h a ttan this m o rning, in th e fight for Dem ocratic nom ination f o r governor, was a conference be­ tween Senator E d w a rd M urphy and Jam e s K. McGuire, chairm a n of th e executive com m it­ tee of the D e m o c ratic .S tate Committee. Mr. McGuire was sent for by Senator Murphy. A fter the conference Senator M urphy was asked w h a t th e n a tu r e of th e discussion was and h e said: “W e merely- discussed in detail of t h e con- . vention—the ro u tin e work. T h a t is a l l .” ■ C h a irm a n M cGuire w a s asked th e nature of the conference and he said: *‘I only paid a friendly visit to Senator M urphy.” Mr. M cGuire w as asked if he w as a can d i- . date for Governor. •s *T am not a candidate for Governor. I still favor th e nom ination of Bird S Coler. It seem s to m e th a t the situatio n is un­ changed. \WTiether M r. Coler can be nomi­ nated or not is an o th e r auestion. I think he is the only m a n who can carry th e sta te this y e a r .” Mr. McGuire refused to discuss th e avall- s ability of ex-Judge R o b e rt E a rl of H e rkim e r. Senator M u rphy still w a n ts John B. Stanch- fleld, b u t Mr. C roker is said to be opposed to him . I t w a s said th is m o rning t h a t Sena­ tor M u rphy se n t for Mr. McGuire to come to the h e a d q u a r ters because of the fact th a t the com b ination had no candidate fo r Gov­ ernor. I t w a s said th a t a ten tativ e offer was m ade to Mr. M cGuire, but th a t Mr. McGuire refused to consider the proposition as com ing fro m .th a t source. A close friend of Mr. M cGuire’s said th is m o rning th a t , h e would only accept th e nom ination for Gov­ ernor when proposed by Senator H ill. One of the topics of the conference be­ tw e e n McGuire and M urphy this m o rning was the question of tem p o rary chairm a n ship. Mc­ Guire was told th a t he could have the tempo­ rary chairm a n s h ip if he w’anted it. b u t Mr. McGuire. It is said, declined to accept it. eaying th a t. Inasm u c h as the Croker-M urpby com b ination had a m a jority of the delegates, they should choose th e i r own chairm an. The Coler m e n a t the Hoffman H o u s e this m o rning sta te d positively th a t Senator Hill would go into th e harm o n y conference; that the nam e of Coler would bfe presented to the convention. The C o ler m en say th a t Mc­ G u ire is as distastefu l to the Croker-M urphy com b ination as Mr. Coler himself. Mr. C roker was again asked this m orning If he had any candidate. H e said: *T have no candidate. We will let the convention n a m e th e m an.” Mr. M cCarren said: ‘‘E v e rything points to harm o n y . I t looks now as If all factions would get to g e th e r a t Saratoga and agree upon an acceptable candidate.” Mr. M cCarren w as asked If ex-Judge Earl would be acceptable and he said: “If. Judge E a r l w ill accept he w o u ld be a splendid candidate.” The T a m m a n y H a ll delegation w ill leave the G rand C e n tral D e p o t next Monday m orn­ ing on a special train in three sections. The train will leave a t 9 o’clock and w ill be in charge of Senator P lu n k itt. The second sec­ tion w ill leave at 9:30 o’clock and w ill be in charge of Com m issioner Keating. T h e third section w ill leave half an hour after th e sec­ ond and will he In charge of F rank J . Good­ win. Coler R e fuses to M a k e A n y R e p ly to Croker. C o n troller O o ler refused to-day to discuss the late s t charges m a d e against him by Rich­ ard Croker. M r. Coler was at his office dur­ ing the m o rning and busied him self with finance departm e n t work. He would n o t talk politics, either. As to Mr. C roker’s statem e n t of incrim in­ ating letters in h is possession, It m ay be stated here th a t th e letter w ritten by the C o n troller to W a ter Com m issioner D alton was regarded by th e form e r not as a personal and private com m u n ication, b u t an official letter. The proof of th is is th a t th e letter w as cop­ ied In the Finance D e p a rtm e n t le t t e r file and is p a r t of the office records. The com m u n ication regarding a w a ter sup­ ply for B rooklyn w a s sent by the Controller to C o m m issioner D a lton for the la t t e r ’s in­ form a tion and on i t w as m arked a request to ,rN retu r n because it w as not the C o n troller’s V property. M any hundreds of papers sent from one dep a r tm e n t to another for Inform a­ tion are m a rked in the sam e way, because they are w a n ted back as p a r t of the record. There Is nothing unusual in such procedure, but i t Is the custom a ry thing. Mr. C roker’s statem e n t m akes it appear th a t he has th e originals of both lette r s and that he secured them from W a ter Commis­ sioner D alton. Mr. Coler’s letter to Mr. Dal­ ton w a s regarded by the form er as an official pommimlcatlon. The fact th a t Mr. Dalton confided It to M r. C roker show s th a t he did not s o regard It apparently. As before s tated, how e v e r, th e finance departm e n t le t t e r file co n tain s a copy of it. The w a ter le t t e r w as se n t Mr. Dalton because th e plan proposed appeared to be novel, and i t w a s to m a k e Mr. D a lton acquainted w ith all th e facts regard­ ing w 'ater supply extension. K in g s County W ill Send A b o u t 300 Men to Saratoga. K in g s County’s delegation a t the conven­ tion, like th a t sen t by Tam m a n y H a ll, will be a larg e one. T h e p a r ty will num b e r upward of 300. Tam m a n y leaders believe th a t it is essential th a t th e up state D e m o c rats should be im p ressed with th e stren g th of New York City and thus m o re readily consent t o plans th a t m ay be drafted by Mr. C roker’s support­ ers. Tam m any’s delegation will num b er ab o u t 1,000 and K in g s County will attem p t to m a k e an equally good show ing.

Saratoga, Septem b er 8—Saratoga Is rapidly filling up w ith D em o cratic politicians. So many things rem a in to be settled in the next two o r three days th a t a great deal will hap­ pen w h e n R ichard Croker, ex-Senator M u r­ phy, David B. H ill an d their lieutenants, for­ m ally open headquarters. E llio t F. D a n forth, one of th e m o st courte­ ous and genial of H ill's lieutenants, arrived here th is m o rning. Ho said th e situation as to th e governorship was unchanged. Mr. D a n forth has little confidence, now t h a t Kings County will come out for Coler. T h a t hope, he th in k s , is dissipated. It Is evident to th e Hill m e n th a t Hugh M c L aughlin's ap p a r e n t uncertainty of last week w a s m o re fo r th e purpose of demon­ stratin g what K ings County could do If it chose th a n anything else. A break w ith T am ­ many u n d e r the p r e s e n t circum stances Is not to be considered. M r. D a n forth talked In this hopeful vein: “T h e D em o crats a r e going to w in. A fter the convention they w ill be united, and th e only fight w ill be again s t Republicans. Dem ocrats below th e Harlem w ill vie w ith the b r e th ren up th e state in m a k ing the b e s t showing. The frictio n existing at p r e s e n t indicates a healthy fighting sentim e n t, w h ich w ill resu lt In bringing to th e polls an enorm o u s Demo­ cratic vote. It is in direct co n tr a s t to the cut an d dried m a n n e r of doing business at the la t e Republican convention.” Jam e s Shevlin w a s asked ab o u t th e situa­ tion th i s m o rning an d replied: “T h e situation wrill be h e r e th is a f ter­ noon.” I t Is thought by others, how ever, th a t Mr. C roker w ill not a r r i v e until to-m o rrow , but Mr. S h -vlin m ay h a v e b e tter inform a tion on this su b ject th a n th o s e who ex p r e s s such an opinion. Mr. D a n forth th o u g h t th a t possibly Sena­ tor H ill r^ight arriv e to-night, though others said h e would not be here u n til Monday, but Mr. H ill is not the “ s itu a tio n ” referred to by Mr. Shevlin. The H ill m en do n o t seem to be in such a fierce fighting mood a s they were. On the whole. It seems to be agreed th a t th e selec­ tion of John B. Stanchfield a s the candidate of th e Hoffman H o u s e headq u a r ters w as quite a shrewd move. Supporters of Croker and M u rphy believe th a t at l e a s t It will give the H ill m en little excuse for fighting or for cu ttin g the ticket. Stanchfield's change of a t t i t u d e excites some In terest, and It Is believed th a t It is ju s t possible th a t the E lm ira m an m a y have had an understanding w ith Hill and th a t In th e end H ill will claim the credit, especially If this candidate should be elected. Mr. D a n forth had a talk w ith Jam e s Shev­ lin th i s m o rning an d was to ld th a t - a l l the Coler delegates th a t could be m u stered from Kings County w o u ld be those from the Sev­ enteenth Assem b ly D istrict, w h en Bridge Com m issioner Shea w ill be allow ed to m a k e good h i s prediction th a t .

In 1896 Mr. B ryan prophesied terrible d isaster if th e gold standard wap. continued and in especial he prom ised m is­ ery to the farm e r and to th e wage w o rker. Now p r o s p e r ity .has com e to all classes in an unheard of degree, and this Is used as an argum e n t why It Is safe t o try th e experi­ m ent of p u t t i n g into pow e r the m e n w h ose creed is th e creed of envy and of hate and of industrial ruin. ‘‘B u s iness m en are appealed to to vote for Mr. B ryan on the ground th a t th e country is so prosperous th a t he could not harm us much. The wage w o r k e r is appealed to to vote for Mr. Bryan on th e ground t h a t though he has prospered, y e t t h e cap italist has pros­ pered, too, and th a t no policy which does good to th e capitalist should be followed, even though it benefits th e w'age w o rker. In other words, th a t he ou g h t not to balance his own w e lfare against th e chance to do in ­ jury to som ebody else. T h is is not an ex­ aggeration, gentlem en. I t is a sim p le sta t e ­ m e n t of w h a t the appeal m a d e by our oppo­ nents is in th e last analysis. They appeal to the base passions o f envy and hatred; to the forces th a t tell for civic disorder and social disruption. T h e y are h o s tile to an u p ­ righ t and fearless jud iciary as th e y are h o s ­ tile to a sound currency. “ Again, th e appeal is m a d e to th e sh o r t­ sighted and careless to vote for Mr. B ryan and a B ryanite Congress, because, forsooth, a Republican Senate w ill preven t them doing wrong. And, latterly, a ra t h e r m o re absurd varient has been m a d e to th is appeal, it being solem n ly alleged th a t i t is safe to elect Mr. B ryan because In such case prio r to the 4th of M a rch next, th e B e p u b licans and sound money m e n w ill have passed such legislation as would shackle th e i r B r y a n ite successors. It.seem s w e ll nigh incredible th a t any m an of average good sense and' honesty should m ake such an appeal, b u t i t is nevertheless actually th e fact th a t it h a s been m ade in one of the responses called fo rth by Secre­ tary Gage’s clear show ing of the m in to our national finances w h ich w o u ld be brought about by M r. B ryan’s election. “L e t no m a n delude him s e lf by any such plea. The K a n s a s C ity platform of this year has expressly reiterated every financial and civic heresy to which the Chicago platform of 1896 w a s com m itted and, above all, has reiterated its adherence to th e free coinage of silver. M r. Bryan ap p a r e n tly finds it po ­ litic for cam p aign purposes to keep very quiet about free silver e a s t of the M ississippi, though w e s t of th a t riv e r h is henchm en are allowed to talk about it as m u c h as they wish. Butaswhether th e y a r e silen t or no, I say the of th e ir adhesion to th i s policy rem a ins and the effort to seem to s l n k ^ e issue does n o t alte r in th e least th e fact t h a t it is an issue.

If we are m o ral­ ly and legally bound to leave the one, we are m o rally and legally hound to leave th e others and Incldentaly to su r r e n d e r New Mexico and Idaho, and p r e tty m uch every other W e s tern State to th e aboriginal in­ habitants.

If Judge T a f t and h is associates and G e n e ral M cArthur . a n d his fellow officers In th e Philippines are representatives of the Im ­ perial Idea, then so is every officer and every Indian agent on a Sioux or Ute or Comanche reservation. It Is difficult to dis­ cuss patiently such an assum p tion. W h y Wo C a n n o t S u rren d e r th e P h ilip ­ pines. “We cannot surrender th e Philippines, In the first place, because of our duty to our­ selves, and in the n e x t place because of our duty to th e people of th e islands. If we stay there peace and o r d e r £ind a far g r e a ter m easure of freedom and self-governm e n t th a n the Filipinos have ev e r know n w ill he theirs as soon as th e i r p r e s e n t insurrection ceases. To talk of staying th e r e u n til we estab­ lish a stable governm e n t and then leaving is, of course, to beg th e question. We m u s t ourselves he th e Judges of w h a t is a stable governm ent, and th e m inute we arrogate to ourselves the rig h t to establish such a governm ent, th e whole case against our in ­ terfering Is abandoned. To tre a t the F i l i ­ pinos on t h e ‘consent of th e governed’ theory, in the way In which Mr. B ryan proposes, would be, w ithout th e i r consent t o put them under a m ilitary oligarchy, and nothing would be so certain to Involve us in a per­ petual career of m ilitarism as to turn th e Filipinos loose and y e t endeavor to guaran­ tee them a stable governm e n t and Insure them again s t interferen c e from outside powers. Such a course w o u ld not only leave a lasting sta in on our own honor, but would be an atrocious piece of treach e r y to those Filipinos .who have deserved b e s t at our hands, and who have been faith ful to us. So it Is in th e Interests of peace; in the in­ terests of the islanders them selves, th a t we should stay and com p lete the w o rk th a t we have begun. “ The law of our natio n a l life has been th e law of expansion and we have been great ex ­ actly In accordance as we have dared to do great tasks. If the m e n who m e t in the F i r s t and Second C o n tinental C o n g resses had acted on the principles professed by th e so-called antl-lm p e rlallste of to-day. we would never have been a nation—certain ly never a n a tion th a t would have inspired th e respect of the world. “As re s t w o rth having com es only as the result of effort, so peace w o rth having comes to a nation only as t h e re s u l t of effort. W e have peace and union in th is country now only because the m en of t h e g r e a t Civil 'W ar dared, e n d u red and suffered greatly, and g r e a t w as th e i r trium p h In consequence. So now , if we shirk our work, if we flinch from th e duty Providence has allotted to us and ignobly haul down the flag and leave th e islands to fail into anarchy and th e n become the prey of some stronger pow e r, we sh a ll gain no re a l peace and we snail in c u r undy­ ing sham e. “I t is set forth w ith strid e n t em p h a sis t h a t ‘no m an Is so good as to be fit to govern an o th e r ’ so long as the first m an Is an A m e ri­ can and th e second a T agal b a n d it; yet, a t the very tim e this argum e n t is being m ade, those m a k ing it are am e n d ing o r conniving at th e am endm ent of the co n s titutio n In cer­ tain states, so as to provide th a t th e w h ite m an shall govern the black.
