A Manifesto Soon to Be Issued—Much Opposition to Nomination of a Third Ticket .New York, July 13.—The democratic gold K-.anclard leadei-s have not yet decided on the date nnd place of the conference ot which it js expected a manifesto will be issued defining their attitude towards The national ticket nomi- nntcd at Chicago. Willinin C. Whitney is still at his country home on Long Island, and Senator Hill had not arrived in this city up to noon Monday. C'sirlos French, the Connecticut member of the rltmoeratir. national committee, \v:i« nt the Murray }Ii!I hold Monday i-nornir.g. but he said ho w;:.s going homo immediately. lit 1 did not know just when the eonfiiivnCB «-onld be hcW. but IK> thought it would not talie place liefons Wednesday. Mr. French denied oiuphaticnMy the report that lie had de- . claret! in favor ot nominating a third nationol ticket. Me snii'l he had not committed himself one w:iy or the. other and would not until the gold standard men hnd conferred n?)d decided on some course. One of 1h* Tammany leaders said • Monday that the eeiit'orence would probably be held at. Long Pr.-Hich on WcilnPSilay and ili<U it. would be attend- .' cil by democratic leaders from New York anil several other states. Opposed to a Third Ticket. From the talk of the Tammany leaders and the followers of Hill up tie state, it appeared Monday that the or- ganixalion democrats are generally opposed to the nomination of- a third ticket. Some of the Tammany men talked of making a campaign for the Bryan. ticket.; others said they would vote as they pleased, but none of them seemed, to think that it would be wise to name n gold standard ticket. Hill and Whitney are believed to be opposed to a bolt and the machine men, in their talk, appear to lit reflecting the sentiments ot these leaders. According to a statement made Monday morning by a friend of Mr. Whit- licy, the conference of New York lead- • ers is likely to result in a decision to ignore the national ticket as far as possible, and call on sound money democrats to help elect congressmen opposed to free silver coinage and to join in an effort to carry New York for the democratic state ticket. By refusing to bolt, it, is said the state organization can. . maintain its regularity and at the same time effectively work against "Bryan arid Sewall. The organization men seem to fear that a bolt would res-jit in the formation of another state organ-- ization .which would be recognized a» regular by the democratic national committee and. make a great deal of trouble for the state leaders.
