THE PLAN SKILFTJUI HATCHED, , /-, \ ; • Bo Quietly Wa s the Big Maneuver Mad« That Even the Scalpers Were Unaware of It s Effcenc e Until Too Late to Fight. BUFFALO, Sept. 24.—The Express pub lishes today a leaded three-column article declaring tha t tho New York Central and Hudson River railroad has secured control of practicaUy all the tonnage that floats upon the Erie canal, and will, therefore, be in a position to control all freight rates' on th e canal. The scheme Is said t o have been conceived more tha n a year ago. It wa s set in operation, it is claimed, on the first day that th e canal opened last spring. On th e first day the boat s were loaded at 2% cents. On the day following the railroads cu t the price to 2 cents from Buffalo to New York. This necessitated the boatmen taking loads at 1)4 or \% cents or lie idle. So shrewdly has the New York Central done its work that until a few days ago nothing could be seen in this but an at- tempt on the part of th e roilroadtrto force the boatmen to go out o f business. The schema wa s a deeper one than that, however. Tho Now York Central saw that i t could do better than thro w tho oanal out of business, even if It was possi- ble for i t to d o so. There would always be a time of year, just after harvest, when tho elevators would not be able to hold all the grain for the railroads. Traffic haa grown to such great extent that at such times tho railroads could not hope to b e able to control It unless i t should be able to control the canal. So the New York Central company conceived the plan of gaining control of all of the canal boats on the Erie, making itself a vast scalping company, and foroing ou t all scalpers. This, it is claimed, is jus t what the New York Central ha s done. In doing it the company has been very careful no t to show it s hand. It has operated through throe wellknown Buffalo canal men, and through thorn has gained control of 90 per cent of all tho boats on th e Brie canal, not a boatman having come into the combine who ha s not had assurance that the New York Central company i s behind the scheme. Assurances of protection to boat- men who have mortgages o n their'boats held b y scalpers have also been given. It is stated tha t every boatman! who- has come into tho combine has signed an agree- ment to take no loads except such as are given him from the office of tba syndicate at 41 West Seneca street. If any boatman should do otherwise he Is subject to a fine of $100 for each load so taken. If the fine is not paid h e will be expelled from the syndicate and denied it s protection and rates. The plan on whic h the syndicate 1B being worked i s said to be a s follows: The emissaries of the New York Cen- tral railroad warrant thi>' boatmen good rates for carrying grain, and i n return tho boatmen carry only such loads as ar e as- signed to them by the freight committee, or tho New York Central railroad, which dictates to the shippers What- they shall pay for the transportation of their grain from Buffalo to New York. In this wa y they will bo able to make their own rates to shippers, secure the shaving whic h has been going into th e pockets of the scalpers in the past, and at the same time do away with the fight between th e canal and the railroad. So shrewdly i s th e scheme said to have been worked that even the scalpers wele not aware of i t until too lat e to make an y concerted effort against it. About the first thing th e scalpers knew of the scheme was. when they were brought face to face with a schedule of rates for transporting grain that exceeded any rate paid this season so far. At first thescalpers were inclined to lough,at the demands of th e boatmen, bu t they Woro informed firmly that-n o loads would b e taken out of Buffalo for less than ' the scheduled rates. Then the scalpers were ready for war, but they were too late. They hinted that the mortgages on the boats might be foreclosed, but they found that the men wh o had been hard up the day before were then prepared to pay their interest, or even th e principal, If wanted. Then the whole thing-was sprung upon the scalpers. 'They wefo told that If they wanted to ship grain b y the oanal they, could no longer be diotators of rates, but; tha t the freight committee would settle, tha t matter for them. ' I This fiat applies to all shippers alike. Th e combino will d o ail the scalping here- after, and tho individual heretofore known as the scalper wUFbeathinjr of the past. To show the hold the syndioate haa go t on the canal traffic, It need only be cited that the scalpers conceded everything^ de- manded in the contract. \isanoh •pt. 34.—Mrs. Langtry was on the subject of th e loss of hex of j.. ni .| B {rom the siQane-Biiteet r to* T, '\\ l ' nl0I » bank of-London Jast ''Wfw I\*\\\ of a for ^ a Order* Sh e totte >i hai1 \btotaed hofurthe?

The hotels have been refusing peo- plo by hundreds and boarding house ao- j commodations are at a premium. J The Alhambra rink, whero th e convene , tion meets, had been beautified by a lib- j oral use of flags and bunting an d looked attractive and inviting to tho Democratic hordes whioh filed- through its doors this morning and took their seats preparatory to the call to order of Chairman Hinckley, or gathered in groups t o eagerly discuss tho work before them. The capacity of the plaoe had been ad- ded t o by placing 250 additional seats and 90 seats for the accommodation of the press. On the stage were about 400 people. Out- sklo of the delegates and contestants, how- ever, there was littlo room for visitors. While the stream of delegates was pour- ing into the doors, a band In the gallery was enlivening matters with popular airs and patriotic discourses. Many of the loaders wore oarly on the scene and were kept busy o n all sides with handshakings and friendly grcotings from nowly arrlvod delegates. A high degruu of enthusiasm was early aroused by the entrance of a number of tho prominent lenders, who were greeted with rounds of applause. Senator Hill's reception was of the most flattering character, while ex- Governor Flower, William 8\ Hheehan, Senator Murphy, Thomas F. Gllroy, cx- Postmnster General Bissoll an d other prominent Democrats came in for aliberal share of the noisy encomiums. When tho disturbance incident to the gathoring of the clans ha d somewhat sub- sided, Chairman Hinckley, as temporary chairman, rapped tho ossein blage to order and declared tho convention opened in a brief speech in which he introduced Hon. Perry Belmont, tho permanent chair- man. Mi'. Belmont took the chair amid a round of applause and after making- a-few re- marks in recognition o f the honpr con- ferred upon ill in, opened the business ses- sion of th e cpnvontlon. Charles R. De Freest was chosen secre- tary with William Ellis as assistant. Tho organization having buon complet- ed, a recess was moved until tomorrow to arrange th e work of the committees and other routine matters, together with the mattor of contested soats an d other pre liminury business. The result so far i s peculiar to tho pollt ical observer. In years gon e !>y whe n tin day of convention hud arrived tin; cnmil dates dwindled t o small numbers, ami ih slato loomed outof tho muss of dtagriiiiil-v debris of political ambition. Today precedent has beon thrown t\ tin cold west wind tha t has suporeodml tho all too hot sunshine, and tho slate that last night was in fairly good shape is iilmo.-.t lost sight of behind tho swarm of now can- didates. Truly they come by hundreds. From the pockets of every county chair- man or state committeeman or woul d bo leader arriving has come forth a-new can- didate's boom. Tho only offices that seem to be ou t of dispute ar e those o f seorotary of state and attorney general. The comptrollership seems to b e the main bono of contention, and there have developed at least five new candidates. Frank Campbell of Bath, the ex-comp- troller, announced that h e was not a can- didate, but that he would support Calvin J. Hudson, who was his deputy. Then the Albany delegation announced that they had two candidates for comp- troller, James H . Mannin g and Norton Chase. Mr. Chase wa s in earnest conversation with the Erio county leaders later on and then frankly announced that he was for \anything- he could get,\ e o that it i s be- lieved that h e has made a dicker whereby if Mr. Sche u of Eri e Is supported to vic- tory by th e Albany delegation he will get the state treasurershlp. It was only a little later when John Ashe of Montgomery, leading his delega- tion, announced himself as a candidate for state comptroller, and a little later the Ontario county men announced a candi- date for th e same office in the person of J. St. Metcalfe of Ontario county. While those candidates were making known their claims, tho supporters of Augustu s F. Soheu o f Erie were buokling on their armor and headed by State Com- mitt oman Mack, Wore preparing t o com- pe l recognition of their claims by the leaders. The leaders smiled and refused to make selections. Tho probability, therefore, is that the slate will not be selected before tonight, and that even then several candi- date s will b e loft to fight over the places. A glance at tho list of candidates will show the contest that Is on: Secretary of State—Horatio C. King of Brooklyn, Genoral Isaac S. Catlin of Brooklyn, o r Charles A . Cary of Orleans. Attorney General—D. G. Griffin o f Wa- tertown. State Treasuror—-John B. Judso n of GUoversvlllo, John E. Ashe o f Fonda, D . h. Bow of Schoharie. State Comptroller—Frank Campbell of Bath, 1). L . Dow of Schoharie, T . W. Myers of New York, or J. Gerling of Monroe, A. Sehou o f Erie, Norton Chase of Albany, J. H. Manning of Albany, J. E. Metcalf of Ontario, Stato' Engineer and Surveyofc-Russel A. Stewart of Syracuse o r George R. Clin- ton Ward of Boonevllle. Judge of th e Court of Appeals—A. B . Parker of Kingston, Judge J. D. Teller of Auburn and Judge IS. S. Rapallo of New York. Zt will bo seen that the list is large and that the difficulty of selection Is great. Tttpre is talk of General King being 1 re- pudiated by th e Kings County Democracy but u p to a late hour h e was tho strongest •f the candidates; In fact the slate of last night still stands as to the leading men, but a well conducted move is likol y to change its entire complexion. Tho ticket most iu favor at present is as follows; Secretary o f State-^-Genoral Horatio C , King o^ Kings ; Attorney GtmeraMJaniel <S, Griffin U 'Jefferson. CoinptrolU*--Augustus V. Scheu. o f fcrla. Stato Treasuror— D. i. Do w of Scho- harie. State Engineer of Oneida, Judgo of Court of Appoals lor of Cayuga. General interest naturally centers in the platform. Tho first proposition submitted today and introduced i n tho convention is this plank: PROBABLE PLATFORM. Substance o f the Resolutions — KscUo Plank Remains In Doubt. The great Democratic governor, Samuel J. Widen, in his measure to tho legislature of 1875 recommended the improvement of the state oanals upon the plan embodied iu the prup.wi ti.m to be voted upon by the people at (he ap- proaching election. In complete accord with the prim-iplva and policies of Governors Hoymour, Ttlden and Hill, the Democratic party heartily approves the proposition lor improving the canals of this statu. We denomioo nst a cowardly subterfuge tho utteranues of tho Republican party on the most important question of oanal improve- ment The Demoeratie party of thu state of New York stand unalterably opposed to anoeallod ship oanal project between the great inland lakes and tidewater of tho Hudson river its well as against fed, ral aid toward improving our canals or national inti-rfeivnou with the oanal system owned and operated by the state. Tho remulndor of tho platform, exclu- sive of excise, whioh is treated of separate- ly, Is a s follows in abbreviated form; Declaring that the return to prosperity in tho country is duo to the proper admiutstra tion of thu national affairs by Democrats and protesting against any tariff tinkering. Declaring against tho ru-enaotmeut of any law similar to the Sherman silvi-i- law. Commending thu administration of Presi- dent ClKveland. Protecting against the high rate of taxation in tho btut« by the last Republican legislature and dnolaring that tho Republicans in that legislature were extravagant. Pointing out the immense expense incurred by so-enlled investigating committees and the saddlbig of probablo additional taxes next year. Criticising tho partisan legislation in- dulged in and the failure to work tho reforms promii d. Arraigning the administration of Governor Morton for its glaring sins of omission and commission. Indorsing and reaffirming the principles con- tained in former years' platform, for wo be- lieve in simple, honest and frugal government. Individual liberty, genuine home rule for municipalities, elevation of standards in the oivil service, a revision of the tax laws, an hon- est ballot and a fair count, tho development of agriculture, tho proper fostering of labor in- terest, tho spread of education, all necessary publlo improvements, including the mainten- ance and development of tho canals, the sup- preasion of monopolies in the manufacture and sale of necessary artioles of life. Frank M. Scott, corporation oounsel of New York, hns drawn up a plank i n ro- gard to tho sale of liquor o n Sunday in the eitios of tho state which ho intends to sub- mit to tho committee on resolutions. Th e plank declares that tho Sunday observ- ance of all classes of citizens should bo respected faithfully, and In that view no sale of liquor should bo permitted on Sun- day morning; ye t thu cities of tho state should bo permitted, If thoy so vote, to authorize the sale of liquor upon Sun- I day afternoons. Tho personal liberty of [ voters should not4>o^nf*}r>ged<\-up'OTroir Sunday more tha n any othor day. Mr. Scott says that hi s plank bus the approval of the Germans of Ne w York city, and he hopos it will be accepted. Senator Hill, it is believed, will bring forward a Sunday excise plank which h e has framed and whioh will make au espec- ial point about granting homerule t o cities i n tho mattor of th e salo of liquor upon Sunday as well a s at other times.
