KEW YORK'S DEMOCRACY.
EVERYTHING APPEARS TO BE
CALM AND SERENE.
Benry George's Candidacy for the
Mayoralty of Gotham the Factor that
Brought Out the Olive Branch Still
Displayed -The Rivalry Between Col.
Fellows and Bourke Cockran.
New York, Oct. I.—The State Demo
cratic Convention is remarkable a* being
the only one held in ten years in which the
Democracy of Nw york City were not en
deavoring to scalp each other instead of try
ing to aid the party.
Thev were brought into harmony by the
(or of circumstances last fall. The George
party had sprung into existence in a night,
and threatened to overwhelm both Tammany
and the County Democrary. Had these fac
tions been divided the vote showed that
George would certainly have been elected
Mayor of this city
Tammany, which apparel at the National
Democratic Convention of 1680, after de
feating the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor. and wiiich defeated the Democratic
candidate for President that year by sulk
ing in its tents, was the firet to offer the
olive branch. It nominated Abram S.
Hewitt for Mayor, despite the fact that he
was a chieftain of the County Democracy,
and that he had dealt Tammany some of its
His nomination was made by Richard
Croker. the Tammany leader, who had
proved himself a warm personal friend to
Hewitt years before when Hewitt n<**sled
political friends Hewitt had returned his
Kindness by securing Croker a place among
the Eire Commissioners. Croker felt justi
fied in again befriending Hewitt as no
ticiau in New York was ever before
befriended. Hewitt needed political friends
jii't then. He liad fallen out with the ad
ministration and Croker's medicine recu

under the guidance of a man fully as big

of a united city Democracy forthe first time
in a quarter of a century and wa-trium
Whether he lias given satisfaction to
either wing of the party or not. the union
of isc h w ings holds good. The leaders se *
that in liarmonv only is there strength. For
a vear |st there has leen no quarrel among
them cone -rnihg either the municipal or the
Federal patronage. Tammany, whose fidel
ity to the organization in i HH 4 elected a
Democratic President. whose nomination it
bitteriv oppose 1. evidently appreciates with
p '-T7it’* , .i r, e shaiqienod by a sense of ingrati
tude at Albany, and placidly allows the
friends oft. administration to secure an
advantage w*ich gives them the control of
the d-legation to the national convention
next year. *
Probably one of the most remarkable
scenes in the convention was the appearance
of th<> Hon. William Bourke Cockran and
Col. John R. Fellows in the role of the
Siamese twins. Both men are great orators,
and they have always been heretofore pitted
against each other in the State conventions.
Fellows is Ciceronian in eloquence, while
Cockran is Demosthenic. Fellows won his
spurs in New York as an orator many years
ago. Cockran sprang into the arena much
I well remember his first appearance on
the oratorical stuge. It was as a contesting
delegate on lx - halt of Irving Ho II before the
State Committee in the D davau House. Al
bany. ai>out six years ago Dan Maiming
was chairman of the committee, and one of
its members was William C. Whitney.
Cockran stood before them a man whose
strength was entirely unknown. He is a
massive-faced, broad shouldered, big-boned
man, fully six feet tail. He has a powerfal
vet musical voice, and impresses every
bearer with his intense earnestness. His
gestures and I-earing at that time were awk
ward and unstudied. To-day they are as
graceful as were the bearing and gestures
of Edward Everett. He then stood
before the committee, long haired and
erect, confident—yet unassuming. As he
wanr/’l to his work lie threw Ins chest out
until his form resembled that of Fighting
Joe Hooker. Then he closed bis ey*-s.
gave full play to his imagination and power
of logic, and the words poured from his
month like mo intellectual gold. Facts,
figures, antecedents, ail were n r his com
mand. without relerence to notes. Each
was driven into place by his powerful right
arm without the unclosing of his eye. The
speech was sprinkled with sarcasm doubly
distilled. It was so severe in a reference to
Mr. Whitney that Dan Manning was about
to interrupt the speaker when Whitney
himself, evidently cliarmed by the orator's
constructive power of thought and facility
of expression, besought Mr. Manning not
to interfere. It was perha|*s the greatest
speech ever made before the State- Com
mittee, and possibly much of the considera
tion given to Irving Hall for years after
ward was due to Cockran’s eloquence on
Col. Follows has not the magnificent
presence of Cockran. The latter is built
more like Webster, while the former
naturally recalls Stephen A. Douglas. His
masterly power of speech was shown in the
last two Democratic National conventions.
In Cincinnati, John Kelly, who had bolted
the Democratic Slate ticket the year before,
contested the seats of the County Democ
racy. Old Dick Hubbard, of Texas, now
Minister to Japan, got the platform unex
pectedly and opened up a big boom for har
mony. His i lea of harmony was to give
Kelly half the delegation. Dick is built
aometiling like a Durham bull. He lias
compactness of body and of expression
and a mighty dignity of oratorv. He roared
to some purpiese, and the /aces of the
County Democracy began to blanche as
their owners heard the wave of applause re
sponsive to Dick’s eloquence. Fellows sat
among them with arms folded, legs crossed,
and his curly head at least a foot lower than
the heads of the delegates near him. Hub
bard hail undoubtedly captured the conven
tion when he closed.’ As Fellows took the
platform the silence was so profound that if
a thistledown had blown in you could have
heard it roll over the floor of the hall.
The Colonel began by saying that he had
belonged to the Democracy from the day of
liis birth, and that he had seen many strange
signs and porteuts in the political sky in Ins
day, but this was the first time in his life
that he had ever seen a Democratic State
delegation presenting the corpse of a Demo
cratic candidate for Governor or its creden
tials for admission to a Democratic National
convention. In the clearest Anglo-Saxon,
and with the keenest irony, he held “John
Kelly's treason" to light,’ and depicted its
results. It was done so artfully and quietly
that the most rambunctious. Southerners
were deeply convinced of Hubliard's mis
take ; that it was by the skin of its teeth that
Tammany was given even the courtesy >! a
seat in the hall. If Cockran had been
known to fame at that time and had ap
peared on behalf of Tammany Hall, pos
sibly the result might have been different.
It was in 1884 that these redoubtable in
tellectual champions had ha-1 their greatest
fight. It occurred in the National Conven
tion at Chicago. Kelly was fighting against
the nomination of Cleveland tooth and toe
nail, and Cockran was Tammany's cham
pion. Fellows upheld the honor of the
county Democracy. He was sorely lx*set,
first by Grady, next by Kelly, ami finally
bv Cockran. ’Grady went down before him
like a common soldier, Kelly died as Brian
De Bois Gilbert died, but Cockran was like
old Zarli Taylor—he never knew when he
was whipped, but like a true Irishman
fought to the last, when all hope was gone
and there was not even the breath of life in
his body. His delegation was tied hand and
fool by the unit rule, and Vilas, Chuirman
of Ihe convention, would not give him the
shadow of fair play, even refusing to enter
the protest of Tammany on the record. It
was a groat victory for Fellows, however.
Independent of the advantage of |smtio’i.
His enemies hung charmed on hls words and
joined in the cheers wuen he shook himself
from liis feet aud fell from the chair on
which he was standing by the physical in
tensity of his eloquence.
The iiateiet. however, was buried last
fall and is not vet unearthed. How so--n
the force of circumstances may bring it to
light time alone can determine. < hie thing,
however, is c -i tain, if the scalping knife >s
again drawn bv these two men it will 1c- a
fight worth seeing. Cockran is young, and,
like a goo-1 wine, improves with age. Fel
lows long eg-* j-assed the half mile poet of
life, and unlevs he has the mental and
physical stamina of Gladstone, is liable to
go down in the encounter.

No more remarkable and cosmopolitan
tvpev ->f the g-nus man can Is* found in the
w,-rid than stamp tile corridors of the New
York hotels An observing man can lose
himself m a labyrinth of mysterious cogita
tions in ten minutes, if lie tries to guess the
identity and purpose, of even 10; -*-r cent, of
the rae.i who regularly frequent 11:■ * js-nular
portions of the big New York hotels. There
1 is a vast difference bet ween the man who is
constantly seen about the cot fidma and the
inari who lives regularly and doiuesti -ally
at the hotel. The latter wuies up town
! from business, hurries to hi- room, end Is
invisible a Rot the house again until break
fast tlie next morning, except in very rure
instances. Of course there are hotel her
mits, but three men are exceptions. Asa
rule the regular guests are strangers to the
office ami the public part of the house.
The hotel hermit is a distinct creation. I
have one in view now He has lived for
sixteen years at one of the most prominent
of the Broadway hotels, and in that tune it
is doubtful if he has been away from the
house more than ten consecutive hours H
is a heavy jawed, red-faced creature, with
sluggish eyes, ponderous belly and lazy
movements He rises about 10 o'clo k,
sjionds half an hour over his t-oote. another
half hour with the barlx-r, and then talks
to the hall bovs, telegraph clerks, bar
tenders ami otfier employee of the bouse
who will take the trouble to listen to him.
After this he poses for a half hour on a [-ar
ticular flagstone, with his shoulder - against
a certsv-t [x-rtion of the portico. If any
body bap[x>ns to be standing in that place
he waits [-atiently until he has a chance
to taka up his favorite [xisition. He
has a particular chair by a certain win
dow in the dining rmim. and here he
breakfasts slowly for an hour or more.
After that he resumes his position in front
of the house, or if it is raining takes up a
1-01111111 fixed spare on a particular bench in
the corridor. His life is the acme of monot
ony; he naturally has few friends, for lie
never ventures out in the world, and his life
and talk are tiresome to contemplate and
hear. It is impossible even to get him to
attend the theatre. He undoubtedly d-x-s
precisely as lie wishes to do. and the whole
world is willing that he should devote him
■elf to his fascinating pursuit of hotel im
molation. The men who continually chal
lenge conjecture are the well-dressed, gen
tlemanly-appearing and polisho 1 men of the
world who have* their mail addressed
to the principal hostel lies, who make
all their appointments there, and who
occasionally dine in the hotel restaurants,
but who never actually live in the house.
No mail knows where they do live either,
for their g-lings ami comings are as mys
terious as the much disowned chances of a
good yachting breeze the day liotore a race.
Some of these men of the world are pro
jectors of railroads; others own more or
less pretentious patent rights, and some are
adventurers pure and simple who trade
ujx>n the lesser intelligence of their fellows.
Not infrequently the great wheel of fortune
tlvows one or the other to the top. and the
schemer and manipulate >r of yesterday is the
millionaire of to-day. The majority of the
men are by no means to tx confounded with
swindlers cheats. They are men of
large mental culture, sturdy fighters
against ill-fortune and staunch and true
friends to those who have 1-efriended them.
They realize fully what the whirligig of
New York life is, and they stand by with
no capital but th -ir brains, and wait for
their chanee to elut-ha fortune. Occasion
ally they are victim.-, to their own faith in
the schemes they father. I know of one
man who brought an electric motor from
England, and sank over #50,000 of his own
money in it, He built a machine shop ami
put the motor in it, hired liveried attend
ants and ran the whole thing on a
plan of exalted expense and impressive
ness. He lived in a capital suite of
rooms in the Hoffman House, entertained
gorgeously and succeeded in interesting a
great many men of sound financial standing
ill his project. In the end. however, it all
fell to the ground, despite the most expert
manipulation, and ail Ixicause there was a
screw loose in the machine, and the man
who was promoting it was too honest to do
any dirty work. He is a ]iauper now, ami
the machine has been sold for junk, but he
is as blithe and cultured an ornament of the
New York hotel corridors as though he had
established his scheme on a $5.00U,000 basis
and “realized' 1 on a controlling portion of
the stock. Bi.akely Hall.

BROWN'S BETTERMENTS LETTER
PUTS HIM ON THE SCENT.
He Thinks the Letter Appeared Sus
piciously Soon After Gov. Gordon’s
Message on the State Road Question
—The House Thrown Into Confusion
and the Debate Adjourned.
Atlanta. Ga., Oct. I.—ln the House to
day Mr. Calvin, of Richmond, offered a
resolution to reinstate the special order of
the day. which was to resume the considera
tion of the resolution providing for the sale
i or lease of the Western and Atlantic rail
road. The resolution was adopted.
Mr. Huff then took the floor and opened
his argument. He said that this resolution
reported favorably by the committee should
be considered as a plain business propo
sition. Hls fight on this question
was because it was brought up three
years before there is any necessity for the
Legislature to give the matter considera
tion. The next Legislature should have the
consideration of this question. He referred
to Senator Brown's letter, and stated that
the Governor of the State ha-1 never re
ferred to it. The committee's report shows
itself that it does not attach any importance
to the resolution. It says it may accept or
refuse any bid offered for the sale or lease.
It leaves the matter to the next Legislature
just where he proposes to leave it.
The following day niter the executive
called the attention of the Legislature to
the approaching expiration of tie- lease
comes S- iator Bro /n's letter in which he
says: "Having seen your message." Here,
the very day after the message was read,
the House is flooded with Senator Brown's
letter all printed, all corrected and fixed
up in complete style. This extraordinary
piece of promptness was never before heard
of in Georgia. He doubted if any publish
ing house could have gotten out such a
complete piece of work in such a short time.
In one night Senator Brown wrote
his letter, hud it printed, the proof
corrected and the pamphlet pub
lished in shape for putting before
The members in their seats. It
l<x>ked to him very much as if an explana
tion should be made for the rapidity with
which the Brown letter came out. There
was something, to say the least, funny
alxait this whole thing. It appeari-d in the
discussion that there were two committee
reports. Mr. Huff called for the reading of
both of them.
Mr. HaiTell, of Webster, protested and
said that this should not lie done The

of the Mpeakur. The former, after making
repeated efforts finally gave in, while the
latter continued to hold the floor.

GOV. BROWN’S ARGUMENT.
He Denies the Governor's Right to
Forfeit His Leases.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. I.—There was only
one session of the Governor’s Court to-day.
Senator Brown finished his argument, which
was entered upon yesterday afternoon. He
took the jiosition that live executives preced
ing Gov. Gordon had confirmed the system of
amps and distribution of convicts among
the leesses. and that the Legislature had
legalized the custom by passing laws with
provisions relating to convict camps, when
there were twelve or fifteen camps in the
State. lie made the further argument,
ami raised the point that the guards are
appointees and agents of the State.

James, and occupied the time mainly in
arraigning the testimony of Dr. Houck.
Pending his argument the court adjourned
to afternoon, but the afternoon session was
abandoned. The arguments will probably
be concluded Tuesday.

BASE BALL IN DISGRACE.
. The Umpire’s Assault on Powell of a
Most Brutal Character.
Charleston, S. C., Oct. !. —Greatly to
the surprise of everybody the New Orleans
team did not appear on the ground to-day.
An investigation deveh ped the fact that
they had jiaid their hotel bill after midnight
Friday, requesting the hotel proprietor to
keep the matter secret, and left for home at
4 o'clock this morning. Powell, who was
tieaten by the umpire, is badly used up.
The assault appears to have been brutal.
Public sentiment here upholds the umpire to
the extent of resenting Powell’s abuse, but
it now ap]x?ars that be not only knocked him
down, but kicked him while on the ground.
The umpire of Friday's game was no better
tuan other home umpires and probably no
worse, and the andtenre wa-thoroughly - dis
gusted with the game. The club direc
tors are doing ail in their power
to remedy the evil, but good
umpiis-s are scares - here. Responsible
and well known citizens whose sense of jus
tice could be reins! on will not serve, be
cause of their liability to ie. cursed and
abused by plavers without [power to protect
theicsolvea. An eff - t will be maple, how
evei, to secure a god umpire for the bal
ance of the season.
