A large crowd was on hand to witness the arrival of the visitors. The visitors formed in line, four abreast, and with their band at their head marched quickly to their hotels. A reception commit tee from Tammany Hall, headed by Richard Croker, George B. McClellan and James Martin, met Mayor Harrison and his delegation at the train and escorted them to their hotels, Croker remaining with Chicago's executive until Jjt was time to start for the meeting- at Tammany hall. The Chicago mayor said tie would start for home- tomorrow and would probably stop at Washington en route. The delegation will not leave this city on its return trip until tomorrow night. Cheers for Harrison and Eustia. It was Croker's plan to bring the Chicago delegation here; he was chairman of the committee that welcomed them and he sat proudly upon the platform smiling upon his guests when the meeting opened. The audience was a highly enthusiastic one. Mayor Harrison wag on the platform and the Chicago delegation occupied front seats in the body of the hall. Owing- to the repeated interruptions at the Tammany gatherings care had been taken to keep Henry George shouters out of the hall. Former Ambassador Jajnes B. Eustis was cheered when he arose to speak, and during the delivery of his speech he was liberally applauded. The Chicago men wer» warmly greeted by the crowds in the galleries. There was renewed cheering when Mayor Harrison appeared on the platform accompanied by Richard Croker. But Hisses for Richard Crok»-. One of the most remarka^.e things that has ever occurred at a Tammany Hall meeting took place just then. Some one ealied for three cheers for Richard Croker. The response was a storm oi! hisses that swept over the hall. Not a cheer was given, and the man who ca'!!fe^ for them thougrht he would try again. In a very loud voice he called again for three ch'eers for Richard Croker. There was a feeble response this time, but the cheers were drowned by hissing. Croker heard the expression;; of disapproval for himself and he retired far back on the stage. Harrison Goes for .John 2. White. During Mayor Harrison's speech he took-occasion to pay his respects to ex- Representative John Z. White, of Chicago. Said Harrison: "I have been criticized for coming to New Tork. This criticism has come chiefly from two men in Chicago, and I do not suppose their words coun^or more here than they do in Chicago.^ne of them is W. J. Strong. [Great hooting. The crowd thought he was referring to Mayor Strong.] Mr. Strong has been a prominent candidate for office and has never got there. His influence in Chicago is that of a cipher with the circle wiped out. John Z. Whit* says the labor men of Chicago are opposed to my coming- to New York.

Toung «ge idea with fhe commercial value of j silver as it is now, and also against the contention that free coinage would restore i: to its old price. He closes in part as follows: "As to the issues of the future I can say with absolute confidence that in the future as in the past the mode of levying duties on imported goods and the free coinage of silver will be the dividing lines of the two great parties." He then says a good word for Governor Bushnell and adds: "I will on Tuesday next, Providence permitting; g-o to Mansfield and contribute my vote not only for his election, but for the election of the entire Republican ticket." Cincinnati, Oct. 29.—The meetings of W. J. Bryan yesterday and last night were at Mount Vernon, Newark and Shawcee, and were all largely attended. Bryan discussed the silver question at all his meetings, and also reviewed the j records of President McKinley and Sen- I ator Hanna. He said the first six months j of the McKinley administration were the • most disastrous In the history of the country. He charged Hanna with hos- | tility to labor interests and also with being the "chief conspirator" in the presidential campaign when the "result was due to the twin ag-ents of fraud and coercion and traceable to the money powers of this a:ad other countries." He said: "The gold standard was conceived in avarice, fastened upon the people by stealth, continued by fraud, and its high priest was Hanna." BlR B-^for Somebody.

CAMPAIGN IX THK BUCKEYE STATE Sherman Writes a letter to an Ohio Editor —Bryan's Omva.—fc Washington, Oct. :3.—For the first time sine the beginning of the present campaigrn in Ohio Secretary Sherman has published his views in the shape of a letter aiMressed to the editor of the Cincinnati Volksblatt, in which he says: "I have carefu'ly observed the progress of the canvass with increasing interest as it advanced, and can hardly express in language my appreciation of its Importance. My chief regret is that I could not personally participate in it. for by a usage carefully observed from the days of Jefferson to this time the secretary of state is precluded from actively sharing in political discussion other than on foreign affairs. I look upon the penfimg- canvass in Ohio as a retrial of the issues involved in the election of 1S96." The Secretary then proceeds to .review •what the ilcKinley administration has accomplished, referring first to the passage of the Dingley tariff bill as action to be indorsed, and giving- a brief history of tariff legislation. He then takes up silver acd argues ucainst the £r«« ooi&- ti-President Made Happy by tlie Birth of Sou and Heir. Princeton, N. J.. Oct. 29.—A son was born to the household of Grover Cleveland, former president of the United States, at -noon yesterday.

All afternoon Cleveland received at his home many callers who wished to pay their respects to him in honor of the occasion. Some congratulated the ex- president personally, but many preferred to leave their cards with congratulations and best wishes for mother and son. Princeton under-graduates have taken a great interest in the new Princetonian. There was a large gathering of undergraduates on the field watching the 'varsity and scrub teams practice, when the announcement was rnada. Three Princeton cheers were given for the boy, three for the mother and three more for the father. On the college bulletin board in front of Reunion hall was posted this notice: "Grover Cleveland, Jr., arrived today at 12 o'clock. Will enter Princeton with the class of 1916, and will play center rush on the championship foot ball teams of '16, '17, 'IS and '19." The new baby has threa sisters, the oldest 7 years old.

Sanger Pullman, sons of the dead palace car magnate, declared they would not contest their father's will. This is a reply to & story that the sons considered themselves practically disinherited on an allowance of $3.000 a year, and felt aggrieved at the scant provision made for them in the will.

What the Governor Hint to tmj About • Speciiil Sewtioiu Springfield, Ills., Oct. 29.— A special committee of the Civic Federation of Chicago cajne here to urge the government to call a special session of th* legUl«ture to pass revenue laws. The governor raised objections to the calling- of the proposed session, constitutional «nd otherwise. He said that he doubted whether, under the present constitution, a special law for Cook county which •would be satisfactory to the people of Chicago would stand In the courts. Thctt he said there was doubt as to th» disposition of the assembly to pass any eort of a law for Cook county. He scored the Chicago papers for "their indiscriminate abuse of all public men." He said that during the session of the fortieth general assembly, whick made an unsuccessful attempt to revise the revenue laws, the Chicago newspapers denounced- the members of the legislature as thu"rs and boodlers. Th* calling of a speAil session, he said. would bring together the same body of men. He said that In his opinion the class of representatives elected to office by the people. during a long- terra of years is not likely to be much below the average in point of abilit;f_ind integrity of the community which c.ects them. The failure of Cook county to secure th* class of assessors which it should have he attributed to the indifference of th« better class of citizens to the selection of proper candidates in the primaries. SPANISH REPLY IS NOT WARLIKE. So MUd That It* Tenor In Gratifying to lh» Administration. Washington, Oct. 29.— The Spanish reply to Minister Woodford'3 note concerning Cuba which was received here Wednesday afternoon will be laid before the cabinet at the regular meeting today. Meanwhile the members of the president's official family have not see« the message. It has, however, bee» talked of informally between thepresi-' dent and several of the cabinet ministers, and it may bestated positively that the administration regards the note, so far as its tenor is revealed by th« abstract cabled by Woodford; as being conciliatory and not calculated to breed an issue. It can also be stated that gratification Js felt that the answer was forthcoming within so short a period of time after delivery of Wocdford's note, having regard to the intervention of the Spanish cabinet crisis and change. The acts already performed by the- new cabinet toward, the correction of some of the evils of which we complain in Cuba are regarded as an earnest of the intention of the Spanish government to faithfully carry out the entire reform programme.
