Esopus, July 23. The wonder
here is how harmony came so sud
denly and so completely, out of
chaos and division. , Three weeks
ago, the outward appearances were
that the democratic party was split
asunder. A wide chasm yawned
between two uncompromising fac
tions with neither hope or expecta
tion that it : would or could be
bridged. Bo h at the St. Louis
convention, internecine strife and
relentless -war in the democratic
ranks seemed to be in store. 1
. But by magic, by fate, by an in
spiration otzaemocratic leaders, or
else by some unseen,' unknown and
unguessable influence, the scene has
suddenly shifted, and a complete
tidal wave of harmonv in the Dartv

by Judge Parker- in a telegram
which was read round the world, a
telegram that Mr. Bryan heralded

"manly in the man," or whether it
was the forbearance and generous
yielding by that other matchlees
leader, W. J. Bryan, that has sent
the current of democracy moving,
all in one direction and with a re'
sistless sweep, is all uncertain and
unexplainable: - but the - fact re
mains that never before in the his
tory of the Darty, not even in- the
tidal wave of 1892, were there 'so
many signs of party cohesion, and
eo complete absence of- party fric-
tior, Over against this,-ia a bitter
factional trouble locally among the
republicans of the doubtful states,
New York, Indiana, Illinois and
Wieconsin, for these states are all
doubtful, eava New York, which is
reasonably certain to be carried' by
the democrats by a large majority.
In New York the republicau par
ty is split in twain. The old Piatt
leaders, the wheel horses for the
party for many years, have been
cast aside to put in new men of Gov.
Odell' selection. The veteran sen
ior senator has been put on the
shelf, and his friends, whose, polit
ical features are tied up with his,
foresee their fate when Governor
Odell names the candidate for gov-'
ernor, as he intends to do. Gov.
Od ell's plan is to become the junior
United states senator, and with a
governor of his own choice to elim
inate completely the. old Piatt, or
ganization, and the practical politi
cians who will be displaced by this,
procees aie thoroughly conscious of
In Illinois the republican party
is divided into two factions. The
Roosevelt faction favored the nomi
nation for governor of Frank O.
Lowden and opposed the reoomina
tion of Govenor Yates. Governor
Yates was not strong enough to se
cure his own renomination but he
was strong enough to defeat Mr.
Lowden and to nominate a friend
of his own.
Governor Yates and his friends
blame Mr. Roosevelt for his failure
to be renominated. The Federal
patronage was flagrantly used in all
directions to accomplish this object
and it succeeded. Such things are
not soon forgotten.
In Wisconsin' the breach is wide.

posed the corporations and trusts,
controlled the republican state
convention and renominated him
self. The two United States sena
tors, Spooner and Quarles, and Con
gressman Babcock and the other
representatives of Mr. Roosevelt in
Wisconsin, bolted the convention
and nominated a candidate of their
own for governor. . - -
The Chicago convention, which
was thoroughly controlled by Mr.
Roosevelt as his own domestic affairs
unanimously sustained the bolters'.
In order to try to save the state for
Mr. Roosevelt, the bolters' conven
tion ratified the electoral ticket put
in nomination by the La Follette
convention. La Follette electors
replied by refusing to allow their
names to go on the bolters' . ticket.
Under the Wisconsin law which
provided for the blanket ballot, be
ing in this respect much like the
New York law, the same name can
not be on the ballot twice, and the
voter instead of making one mark
lor tne straight ticket mutt make
marks in several columns. - "
.Every New Yoik , voter knows
what the effect of this provision is.
Unless the Wieconsin election law
be changed or the Wisconsin su
preme court makes a new law by
its interpretatiou of the present one.

column and some in ' another col

In Wisconsin and Illinois the olive
branch must be waved, and Mr.
Sheehan will do it. On the repub
lican side Senator Fairbanks, the
great negotiator, will manage the
Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana
campaigns, - , :
-. There are 169 electoral votes of
which Judge Parker is reasonably
certain. The electoral votes above
stated are: "New York, 39; Illi
nois, 27: Wisconsin, 14, and Iodi-
ana, 15, a total of 84. They were
all carried for the democratic ticket
in 1892. That would give Judge
Parker 253 votes,. or 14 more' than
is required, to say nothing of the
strong probability of bis carrying
New Jersey. Connecticut, Colorado
and Idaho'. Judge Parker could
lose Illinois and still be an easy
winner, or if he carried Illinois he
could lose the other debatable
etates, Wisconsin and Indiana.
This is all on the assumption
that Judge Parker carries New
York. Without New York he will
be defeated. In New York the cam
paign will begin at once. It will
follow in general the form of organ'
ization which Governor Tilden
found so successful.- -In the.firet
placfe, there will be a thorough, sys
tematic organization right down to
election district sub-committees.
And in the'second place, a persist
ant appeal will be made to the great
body of conservative, working men,
who make up the mass of the vo
ters, to choose Judge Parker rather
than Mr. Roosevelt, and to base
their choice only on the princi
ples of the two platforms, which dif
fer mainly on imperialism, trusts
and the exorbitant t a rift which
prompt the extortions of the trusts,
but on the character of the two men
themselves. On the one hand the
spasmodic, emotional, turbulent
Roosevelt, on the other the safe,
fane and conservative Parker.

Tbis morning between 15.UUU
and 20,000 butchers who had been
out on strike, went to the stock
yards and reported for work at the
various packmg plants. All , ap
peared overjoyed at the probability
of a quick adjustment and end of
what bad promised to be a lengthy
war. To their dismay they found
that only a few were to be taken
back. For a time they hovered a
round the yards, without, however,
offering any violence to the work
ers. ' '- ' :''' .
It was decided to call a meeting
of the men in a. designated place
and as a result of this gathering a
committee was appointed to wait
upon the packing house managers
and demand reinstatement without
Regardless of the threatening as
pect 01 the situation tne managers
refused even to grant a hearing of
the committee and ordered them
back to the lines where they could
be cille'd upon if wanted. The men,
lufunated at the manager s action,
marched away in a body. In ' the
meantime those of theua who had
been selected by the foreman had
entered the plants and, unaware of
their fellow unionists' predicament,
entered upon their work.
The men who had been turned

the local call by sending the follow

telegrams demanding to know why
this action was taken and Donnelly
replied to each that the sole cause
was that the packers had violated
their agreement by showing a de
cided discrimination in the rein
stating of the strikers.
W ben tne order was received in
the plants the wildest excitement
prevailed and from the doors of the
packing plants and out into the
stockyards came an angry army of
men shouting, swearing and indulg
ing in the first violent talk since
the trouble began. Many ot the
workmen were so amazed at the
turn of affairs that they had not
gone to the changing rooms, but
appeared carrying their street garb
over their arms, and dinner pails
in hands and stood around in
groups diseussing the latest phase.
For a time it seemed that rioting
would follow the walkout and hur
ried calls were made for extra po
lice. Bsfore any conflict could oc

nelly sped through the crowds be

Elkins, W. Va., July 15. Hen -
ry Cassa way Davis, democratic can- '
didate for Vice-president, got up '
this morning at 6:30 o'olock after a
restful sleep of eight hours - and ate,
a breakfast that made his secretary,
who is about 29, feel like an inval
id. Then, putting on his long boots
and taking his broad-brimmed farm
hat, be set out for a brisk walk a
cross the lawns of "Graceland," , as
his palatial home back of Elkins is
called. He made his way to the
fields, where already the men were
opening haycocks in expectation of
a good haj day.
Mr. Davis is an energetic farmer
as well as a man of affairs, and the
fifteen men on . the broad estate
know that his quick eye sees every
thing. ' . ,
The first ona of the farm hands
to eee him coming was the old dar
ky, Abram Turner, bent double
with the load of j ears. Turner ia
the gaidener, and his pno idol in '
this world ir "Massa Davis." Tur
ner is a hot republican, but when
the news ot the nomination of Mr. "
Davis reached him he threw 7
down his rake and exclaimed: V
Now am de day of. jubilee.
and dis old darky is goin' fob to
throw his first democratic ticket."
and the old negro picked a great
armful of Maryland roses and '
spread them across the piazza - of
Graceland through which Mr. Da
vis must pass in entering his house.
When Turner saw him coming
into the field this morning he set
up a shout, and the men, white and
black, gathered around the athlet
ic figure of the wonderful old man
and shook his hand.
"It affected me more," said Mr.
Davis to a World reporter tonight,
"than all the congratulations I have
received. I suppose you will smile
when I tell you, but the greatest
pleasure that I have felt since they
woke me in my car at Grafton at 3
o'clock yesterday morning and told 1
me that I had been nominated for
vice-president was when my sweet,
eleven-year-old motherless grand
daughter, Katherine Brown, who
lives with me, came running across
