After the men had conferred with the leaders who ^vere already here some light was thrown upon what will probably be done at the convention.

Fassett, is here, and will carry out the instructions of voting for Bryan nnd the Chicago platform, which the senior' senator refused to do. John C.'Sheehan, who was iii Albany Tuesday conferring with Senator Hill, will be here Tuesday evening, nnd will probably be the most influential leader here. Tammany's silver .tongued .orator, Thomas F. Grady, will probably be the temporary chairman of the convention. : The .permanent chairman has not yet been decided upon.

Underwood is' the murder of a man Chicago, Sept. 15.—Harry Larnway, porter at the Union depot in Detroit, Mich., was. Monday night caught in the net of robbing United States mail pouches and placed'undcr arrest. For months there has been a leak in the postal service between this country and Canada, which the detectives were unable to locate. Suspicion, however, pointed to Laraway, and after much difficulty ihe crimes were traced to him. • ' Inspector Stuart said Tucsdtiy that Laraway's thefts had extended over a period of Ij months and there is no telling- how many letters he has stolen. Monday night, alone, he took 43. Complaints have been coming- in for months past from Canadian correspondents of ^hica'pro banks and a quiet Surveillance was instituted. Extra precautions were taken hi the matter of sealing >ouches and mec were concealed in the cars, but nothing wrong was discovered. Then it was found that the 'sacl;s'had bec'n cut open and i-escwed with soiled thread. Men \vcre detailed to follow the vans on bicycles, others rode on the roofs of the baggage cars and watched the clerks, and it was at last decided that the work was done in a little brick building in the Union depot at Detroit, where the mail is transferred. Laraway, , a Canadian, worked there at night, but could not be watohed, as there was but one door and 110 window. A special compartment was built adjoining, but proved impracticable. At last a tunnel under the building was made, and the dispatch announcing the capture of Laraway in the very act of cutting open a sack proves how succe ssful this plan was.

The detective was buried by Stiver, who compelled Eowen, who is only 11 years old, to kneel on the grave and swear never to reveal the secret.
