(Journal 8peclal Service.)
(SARATOGA, N. Y., Sept. 29. The ar
rival of Senator Hill, Chairman Frank
Campbell, William Sulxer and others,
gave rise to a discussion over the prob
able planks in the platform to be adopt
ed at the 8tate Democratic Convention.
So far It conttalns the following: 'The
administration of Roosevelt is condemned
as spectacular, undignified and vacllllat
lng." - "
It denounces the acquisition of the
Philippine, and calls for a revision of the
tarUI, pledges' Itself for canals and water
ways and advocates federal Interference
and control of great monopolies.
SARATOGA. Sept 29. Nearly aU the
Democratic state leaders of prominence
are uere and the hotels present scenes of
political activity on the eve of the
state convention. With former Senator
Hill again in the saddle the convention
Democrats of the Empire State have
held for a number of years. It Is admit
ted on all sides that Mr. Hill will name
the man to head the state ticket. It Is
admitted also that after complimentary
votes have been given to th different
men in the field and home pride has been
satisfied the act of the delegates in cast
ing ballots for the man, who is to be
the candidate will be merely perfunctory.
While the name of Bird S. Coler, former
Comptroller of New York City, continues
to be heard most frequently in connec
tion with the gubernatorial nomination,
his selection for the honor is not regard
ed as a certainty by any means, because
It is known that a strong effort Is mak
ing to placate such old-line Democrats
as August Belmont, William C. Whitney,
Panted S. Lamont, W. B. Hornblower,
Wheeler IL Peckham and others who do
not look upon Mr. Coler with great de
gree of favor.,
There Is still talk of Judge Park, Judge
O'Brien of the Court of Appeals, Justice
Cullen of the Supreme Court and Judge
John Clinton Gray of the Court of Ap
peals. For second place on -he ticket the
name of Elbert B. Morris, President of
the State Orange, Is prominently men
tioned. 1 ' Compromise of Estate.- -

'Occupation Tax Dodgers

DECISION BY SEARS
Mayor Williams Warns AU Delin
quents That They Will
The occupation tax law is a valid meas
ure. Bo decided presiding Judge Sears of
the Circuit Court this morning.
Bome time sgo George Ltnt, an attor
ney, commenced action aguinst the city
seeking to enjoin the corporation from
forcing the payment of an occupation
tax on the ground that the law Is uncon
stitutional. After hearing arguments pro
and con on tha case, and looking up
authorities on the subject, the court holds
that the law Is valid and therefore the
demurrer to tha complaint was sustained.
This ends the case as far as the Circuit
Court la concerned and it is not thought
likely that Mr. Lent will care to carry
hie cause to the Supreme Court.
MUST NOW PAY UP.
The officers stationed at the City Hall
were Jubilant when they heard of Judge
Sears' decision but did not express any
Mayor Williams was probably the hap
piest of all as ha . has always been a
strong supporter of the occupation tax
and has used every 'expedient to try and
see the law rt-ldly enforced. When

tated as follows;
THE MAYOR'S W ARNING.
"Every man or firm who has not paid
the occupation tax knows It and further
they know that they are liable to arrest
and prosecution In the Municipal Court.
They have been dealt with very leniently
in the past but how they must suffer the
consequences of their wilful neglect.
"I am satisfied that many have held off
from paying this tax untn after a test
could have been made of the law but they
can see now that they have been left
without tUnttnm With thoojk facta in
view I have decide! that It Is advisable
to give all delinquents 10 days more grace
In which to come in and pay. This will
frtve all those who are so inclined
chance to ' square themselves with the
NO MORE LENIENCY.
"When the prosecutions do commence
there will be no dropping of cases but
they will be vigorously prosecuted to the
end, the end Jilt whom it may. The city
Is deeply In need of ready money and the
occupation tax law was drawn with the
hopes that It would supply a large amount
to the treasury. '
"If any of the delinquents are convict
ed, and there surely will be, we will real
ize more than If they came right forward
