DT IJIYIJ r IiNEKcJAN.
N KAV VORK. April . (Special.) The
I'rijiooratio party In this state ha been
rai-t for the role of Panny Ileever. It Is
continuous frforniam-e and the bang
!na snea on day In and day out.
From one end of the state to the other
tmftfrnatlon at hlrh-handcd Tammany
methods ta growing- more intense. It has
reached such a stage that If you see two
men quarreling- on the street, the one
best bet is that they are Democrats dis
cussing present political conditions. Even
Tammany men. in private conversation.
admit that the organisation has gone too
far, and that the party is hopelessly
wrecked In the state. Publicly, of course,
they Mirk by Murphy. They have to, or
be thrown out of the organisation.
Tweed, in his palmiest days, never even
!rfmed of the one-man power thst Is
enjoyed by the present hosa of Tammany
Hall. In New York, delegates to conven
tions are chosen at primaries held under
strict and easily understood state law.
Vhen voters register at annual elections,
they likewise enroll In political parties
it they see tit. These lists are under the
control of the Board of Elections, and a
man who does not appear upon It is not
allowed to vote at the primaries.
Regular election officials preside at
these primaries, provision Is made for
watchers and there are all possible safe
guards to provide for a fair vote and an
honest count. Then tha legal presumption
is that the delegates who have the largest
numher of votes shall be accorded seats
in the various conventions.
Murphy Throws Out the Klex-t.
But Murphy does not see It that way.
lie first showed his disapprobation a year
ago, when several assembly districts were
carried by Tammany men who beat fav
orite sons of Murphy. The triumphant
victors naturally expected that they would
be seated In the Tammany executive
committee. But Murphy said. "No."
There was no real question that these
men were the choice of a majority. Still
Murphy didn't like them. So they were
kept out. A couple of them made their
peace with the organization that means
Murphy. The others are still outside
"Tammany tactics'' were introduced In
the state convention this year for the first
t time. That Is what has made all the
trouble, the up-state man not being used
t. It. The King County delegates were
thrown through the skylight without the
slightest excuse In the world. All of the
McCarren men had won at the primaries
by eomfortablo majorities. In one case
the vote, as returned bv the inn.,.in
waa 66 for the McCarren ticket and 304
for the opposition. In another It was
to rr.. But this did not save ths men
who had the majorities. Out they went
or, the ground that they had been illegally
elected. The real reason, of course, was
that Murphy did not want them.
Was this what caused the revolution'
Not at all. This was simply the over
ture. There is a Democratic state com
mittee, composed of one member from
ch Senatorial district. Members are
chosen In the same method as Is followed
tn the selection of National committee
men. That is to say. the delegates from
ejtcn Senatorial district
select their man. The unpleasant feature
of this, from the standpoint of a boss, is
that often persons are chosen who are
vociferously Independent. It is far bet
ter for the organization that these gen
tlemen be kept off the state committee.
So Murphy Jammed through a resolu
tion reciting that the -following be and
are hereby elected members of the state
committee." Also that the state commit
tee be empowered to make such changes
in membership as it sees fit at any
IYior to this the various district dele
Rates had elected tbeir committeemen
along the old lines. Those who did not
meet the approval of Murphy and Con
ners simply are not on the committee.
That is all.
Two cases are particularly glaring. In
one of the Buffalo districts. ex-Sheriff
Frederick Smith received all the nine dis
l trlct votes. But he waa not on the list.
was appuea to lor ln-
formation on the subject.
"Ves. I did it." he said, quite proudly.
"I don't like Freddie Smith."
Two Glaring; Cases.
In Onekla County, State Committeeman
11. L. Fatton did not receive any votes
f for the office he holds. Mr. Patton has
I recently come out in a long Interview,
! urging that "all differences be forgotten,"
; so as to "harmonize the party."
Which provokes Samuel Beardsley.
. former Railroad Commissioner, and for
years leader of Oneida County, to re
mark: "Mr. Fatton Is a receiver of stolen
iroods. and as. such has his nerve with
him In daring to address self-respecting
City Judge O'Connor, of Utica, Is an-
other Democrat who has bounded into
the limelight. Here Is what he has to
say about tha celebrated chairman of the
"If 'Klngey' Conners ever dares to
come to I'tlca, and I see him. I will have
him arrested s a suspicious character
and send him to jail."
It might be added that fonners Is
afraid that O'Connor moans just what he
says. Judge O'Connor Is a positive per
son, and nuioh beloved in I'tlca. Year
after year he has been elected City Judge,
and he Is a Utile Ctar on his own ac
count. I'p to date the state chairman
has not put the question to a test. Several
times since the convention he has passed
through I'tlca. but always remains safely
hidden inside a Pullman car. Judge
O'Connor Is the man who nearly de
feated Congressman Jim Sherman two
years ago.' His friends say that If he
'.'Jails Fingey." he could be elected to the
Job In November with ease.
William Jennings Bryan Is greatly ex
ercised over present conditions. He has
held conferences with leading Democrats
all over the state, and listened to many
tales of woe with great solicitude. The
decision not to hold a bolting state Con
vention was reached at the earnest re
quest of Mr. Bryan.
The "peerless leader" has explained
that where his heart "bleeds for the
ousted delegates," yet he does not see what
they can do. For the "lawlessness" was
done In the name, and according to the
forma of regularity.
The tact of the matter is that Mr.
ran hopes the trouble will be smoothed
over he fere election day. He expects to
be the candidate, and warts all the votes
possible. A contesting delegation would
only add to his troubles. No matter what
ihe Denver convention might do Mr.
Bryan would be blamed, and receive
punishment at the ballot-boxes. This Is
why many of the out-and-out Bryan men,
nearly all of whom were eager for
second convention, have decided that the
plan would not be advisable undr ths
Senator MeCarren. however, will prob
ably take his case to the National Con
vention. Mr. McCarren does not care In
the slightest as to .the effect It will have
on Mr. Bryan's fortunes. . He has been
accused of many things, but never of
being a Bryan man. So he Is perfectly
willing to cause a miiup at Denver. He
will present the esse of the Brooklyn men
to the National Committee, and demand
"Nobody can tell what Mr. McCarren
will get." remarked one cynical Democrat
today, "but it will cause Byan to get his
Passing of Tom Grady.
One Interesting feature of the Demo
cratic civil war la that It marks the pass
ing of State Senator Thomas F. Grady,
known for generations as "The Sllver
tnnqued Orator of Tammany Hall." Mr.
Orady Is the only member of the State
Senate who occupied a seat In that body
when Orover Cleveland waa Governor.
Mr. Cleveland recognised his sterling
qualities hy writing a letter to John Kelly,
the then Tammany leader, stating that
Mr. Grady was "personally objectionable"
to him and urging that he be kept at
home. This was done, but later Mr.
Grady returned to Albany. During recent
years he has been the main gun at every
Tammany talkfest. Two years ago. as
chairman f the committee on credentials
he had the delicate task of unseating
enough anti-Hearst delegates to show a
majority In favor of fusion with the Inde
pendence Ieague. He carried out orders,
but later made the statement that "This
Is the dirtiest piece of work I ever did In
my entire political career."
At the recent convention Mr. Grady was
again slated for chairman of the creden
tials committee. He knew what his duty
would be and declined to accept It.
"Pat McCarren and I have been friends
for many years." he said to Mr. Murphy,
"we have worked together In the legis
lature, and I cannot use tha ax on him."
Murphy then yielded a point, and
graciously told Mr. Grady he would select
another chairman If he (Grady) made It
a personal matter. Then he added:
"All I will ask you to do will be to
make a speech upholding the action taken
by the committee. One of your good oid
tlme speeches. Tom."
Kven He Finally Revolts.
And then the rage of Mr. Grady burst
forth, the Grady wlro has "taken orders"
from Tammany bosses for years and
never. murmured no matter what he was
asked to do.
"I have done a lot of thlncs I am
ashamed of, but there is a limit. It Is
reached now," he shouted. "Ijast year I
threw out delegates so that stiff Hearst
could be nominated. I hated to do It.
and personally I hated Hearst, but I car
ried out my orders. For weeks afterward
I was ashamed to look at myself In a
glass. And this game Is much worse.
You can throw McCarren out If you want
to, but I will not say a word to help you
And Mr. Grady kept his promise. He is
the Senator from Murphy's home district,
but since the day of the convention Mr.
Grady and the boss have not met.
It is whispered around Tammany Hall
that Tom Grady is to be punished: tha
he will be refused a renomination. and
entirely forced out of public life. For
these are not the days of Independence In
Tammany Hall. Nobody Is allowed to act
or even think, unless he has special per
mission from Murphy.

convened at 10 o'clock. The verdict of
murder in the second degree against
Dickenson and his son, William, occas

the fatal shot that resulted In the death

It was generally believed. however,
that John Dickenson, Earl Ransler and

evident that the Jury believed ail of the

Jl'OGE DECIDES FOR SETTLER
Squatters Can't Be Ousted Tor Bene
fit or Reclamation Work.
XORTH YAKIMA, Wash.,' April 25.
(Special.) In an opinion handed down by
Federal Judge Whltson, of the District
Court today, the Judge decides for the
first time an important point raised under
the reclamation act. The Government
brought suit to oust Hansen from land on
the shores ef Lake Keechelus. which
land will be overflowed by the damming
of the lakes by the Reclamation Service.
Many other owners on Kaches and Keech
elus Lakes are involved, this being a
test case. These settlers went on the
land 17 years ago, under the law permit
ting bona fide residents to settle on un
surveyed public lands and to have prefer
ential right for JO days to make entry
on tiling of. the survey. In the suit the
Government sought to oust the settler
without compensation, claiming that he
had acquired no title, no survey having
been filed. Judge Whltson finds against
the Government contention and says that
the reclamation act permitting the with
drawal of public lands cannot be con
strued in that way, that the settler has
acquired rights hy reason of his labor and
expenditure upon Improvements and that
these rights cannot be confiscated ex
cept by direct legislation by Congress;
that the preferential right to enter is
valuable and that it would not be equit
able to forfeit one man's rights in the
Interests of some other person to ' be
benefited elsewihere by a reclamation pro.

CAUSED BY HUMORS ffl THE BLOOD
The skin is provided with countless pores and glands, through
which an evaporation is going on continually, day and night This is
nature's method of regulating the temperature of our bodies, and pre
serving the natural appearance of the skin. These pores and glands
are connected with tiny veins and arteries through which they receive,
from the blood, the necessary nourishment and strength to preserve
their healthy condition, and enable them to perform this duty.
So long as the blood is pure and rich the skin will be free from
eruption or disease, but when the circulation becomes infected with
acids and humors its nourishing and healthful properties are lost, and
its acrid, humor-laden condition causes irritation and inflammation o!
the delicate tissues and fibres of the pores and glands, and the effect is
shown in Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, or some other distressing,
disfiguring skin disease.
These humors get into the
blood through a deranged or inactive
condition of the system. Those
members whose duty it is to collect
and expel the refuse matter of the
body fail to properly do their work,
and this surplus or waste matter is
left in the system to sour and fer
ment and be absorbed into the
blood. There are also certain
other humors which get into the
blood from without. . The juice or
milk from poisonous plants, such
as poison oak, poison ivy, nettle
rash, etc., enters through the open
pores of the skin and takes root in
the blood. This causes a breaking
out which remains for a time and
then disappears, but returns at
certain seasons of each year.
The cause of all skin troubles can be traced to some kind of humor
in the blood. Smooth, healthy skins are only possible where the circu
lation is pure; and therefore the cure of any skin affection can only
come through a thorough cleansing of this vital fluid. Salves, washes,
lotions, etc., are valuable only for their ability to keep the skin clean,
allay the itching, and tend to reduce inflammation; they Cannot correct
the trouble because they do not reach the blood.
S. S. S. cures skin diseases of every character and kind, because it
purifies the blood. It goes down into the circulation and removes the
humors that are causing the trouble, builds up the weak, acrid blood,
ana completely cures
Eczema, Acne, Tetter,
Salt Rheum, Poison
Oak, Poison Ivy, and
all eruptions and dis
eases of the skin.
