A SCHEME IS ON FOOT in the ranks of the Republican organization to oust John, Hazel, the erstwhile leader and premier, only-holy politician of that party. The trap is not ready to be sprung as yet, but is being well halted for future use. Hazel is marked by a-certain portion of the organizar tion and the fight will be la progress jn a few days.

Far from being daunted by the numerous rumors that have reached his ears, the senior member of the Hazel-Bren- del-Grelner combination is doing a little training himself, and it Js evident that the fight is to cause a ruction in the Republican camp. His satellites are flocking to his aid, while considerable flocking is also being done on the ether iae oi tne csmp. - r s Hay .Get Swatted Hard. , '.

Oliver S, Jenkins belones to this and his- blockade is liable to be very effec tive in gaining him a signal victory. Talk about pledging delegates, Ollie has bought up a majority of the Bibles that were on sale in the city, so" that each delegate would have a new church book to. kiss and retain as a remainder of the vow he had taken to vote for Oliver at the coming State convention. Oilje has a large following in the or ganization, and his. relations with 'Rastus Knight are. too well known to need comment as to where the City Comptroller, with ' an enormous; pull among the leaders, will . stand in the cominr fight, ? The i dnly trouble that Mr. Jenkins' backers are figuring', 4n, is that he u also a candidate " to sue ceed Senator iAmir; This they believe is too much- to nlve one man at one time. It is believed . that some agree ment will be reached. In regard to who shall have the. nomination if or State Senator from the 47th District, and at that time Jenkins will -withdraw from the race, leaving Dan M'Millan and Assemblyman Henry W. Hill to the mercy of .the organization. ' Jenkins' boomers expect-: to r meet considerable opposition from refractory ' delegates but is it the intention to whip them in to line before tne crucial test comes. Fight Slay' Be Fierce. ""it be s' been said that matters , were progressing smoothly in tha HepubllcRn ranks.' but Jt cannot be Said honestly! A factional fight is pending. It is known DDDDDirrn?s ONCIRNATIOHIO. that many -of the committeemen -.. are hostile to the Hazel-Brendel-Greiner combination an that a strong effort will be made to down them. That the opposition has gained considerable strength is evidenced by the actions of the Hazelian forces,' who have pome fears as to the outcome of the race for the State Cornmitteemensblp plums. Consultations with Henry W, Brendel have been numerous. Fred O. Murray and VBilly" Bradish have been to Camp Alger within the past week to confer with the most actlye member of the GliMtat and Gomment . i 1 -' Pert and Pithy Personalities About Popular and Prominent People. That's interesting gossip about - the formation of a ,4nw and apparently powerful boxing club in Buffalo," particularly the statement that 'Hhe promoters' will be protected by Influences of a direct nature," Eh, what's tht? Do you mean to insinuate that Dr. Diehl Dan Kencfick, the Rev. B. H. Stauffer, W. A. V;E. Pattyson, Father Zurcber, Supt. Bull, gheriff '! Kllgallon, Barney Fossett and "pthers' are going to be directors or backers of the new enterprise ? We'll see what we'll see, . . . i .I'm sorry that GEORGE ED WARP MATTHEWS s going to leave us, even for three months. But he's got a good preventive of sea sickness and there's no danger of pe Spaniards capturing bim and the Goo Goos and" -others aren't so very., unhappy, I met a Jamb yesterday at G. O.

G. E. M. Is the original McKinley - boomer, and the President having turned Matthews down on the Coilectorship is anxious to please him with tha Postmastership. So, although G.-BJ, M. Is earnestly and sincerely for another, the next Postmaster of Buffalo is likely to be George E. Matthews, He'd make a good P. M. any A. W. ' . i Every succeeding Fourth of July is a sort of birthday for my venerable and esteemed friend, STEPHEN OSBORNE BARNUM. - The name of Barnum pas been a' household word n Buffalo since 1845 and not on account of my late la mented entertainer, Phineas . Taylor Barnum. Since 1845 at least 36.224.978 children have; been supplied toy n and nrecracKers rrom rsarnum s greaj toy shop. Although Mr. Barnum was born on January 16th, I believe ha observes the Fourth of July Jointly as nis own and the Nation's birthday- Weil, he's caused a lot of good, solid fun in the world (although he's a very quiet mannered gentleman) and the boys of Buffalo--tbe bid ones-as well as the rising generation love S. O. Barnum, Jle'a fheir owtn dear old Santa Claus. Far s. man of 82 vears Mr. Barnum is decidedly lively and enterprising. When a young man hewas a most entnusi-astio volunteer fireman and he has many good stories to tell of the : old-time rivalry between the fire-fighters. A book agent asked me to buy a book the other day;.., He's living and he's a happier and wiser man. The book was JOHN. R:. SPEARS' volume of stories of the American) Navy. -I felt like quizzing :the huckster so J. asked; --"Who's Spears?" 1 - "Dunno, guess he's some naval pm- eer." answered tne agent. "Do you reside in Buffalo?" ' "Yes, born here." " "Ever heard of Silver Creek?" y ;.."Yes." ; 1 t r. .' v.v- ' y-y ' "And never heard of John R. Spears ?' "No." Of . course there are others here now, who never saw or heard of J. R. S. He came from Silver Creek to work foF the Express as a reporter. He had his nerve as well as his natural talent with him. Tall, lanky and awkward but as bright as a new coin, he soon made a record as a clever writer. On one occasion, it is said,' ' he "borrowed" 4 very important decision handed down: by Judge Smith. He got a great "scoop" 'on the court as well as the other newspapers and was nearly Jugged ? for contempt of , court, r-etc. Spears soon outgrew Buffalo and went to JSTew York. He has be-n for years one of the Sun's brightest stars. He has trotted all oyer and around the globe and has out out a comfortable place for himself in the liteitUure of the day. Other bright! writers have come from Silver Creek, but John R. Spears Is the top notcher. So McKinley nas overlooked Gen. Peter C. Doyle and Col. S. M. Welch, jr., Dotn experienced military com manders, in his distribution of briga dier-generalships and has selected - reaaie-- urant ior a position of honor, Gov, Blacte recognized Grant's hereditary rights by naming him for a col onelcy in ' the National Guard and ''young Grant's (he's more than seven now) distinguished (?) service at Camp Black has been , promptly recognized by McKinley's nomination of Grant to command a brigade. It's all right for Grant, of course, but McKinley has shewn a very yellow streak by his weak surrender to the flabbergasted politicians who are- in this Yanko-Spanko-Ranko war for ''what there is in it". These vultures of war ; are deadlier enemies, more dangerous foes than . the most bitter Spaniard on earth. I wish I could burn every syllable of Henry Watterson's -grand, patriotic speech to the Kentucky soldiers at Camp Bradley on McKinley's heart. . Then the war, I believe, would be serious - business, not politics for "what there is Jn it," I was "disappointed because my friend. : GUSTAV FLEISCHMANN, wasn't appointed a Park Commissioner, but we can't all be P. Cs. and I know G. F, isn't disappointed, ' beoause he has often told "me he had no hankering for politics and park business is politics more or less. Now, I want to cite Mr. Fleischmann to the youth of this community as an example of a self-made man In 1866 he landed here from Austria, -only 16 years old, and earned a livelihood as a marble cutter, studying his books every ? night at Cooper Institute. Then he went to Cincinnati and became a distiller and yeast manufacturer. - -Wealth ' poured in oi) the three Fleischmann brothers. You know the rest. He has many interests here and elsewhere. Mr. F. Ja an Elk and I suppose that'a why, he goes to the Adlrondacks as often as possible to kill deer. He's 'a good hunter, too. and - is one of the most popular members of that exclusive and swell organization, the Adirondack Lf1"5' ..." e' , ' Our new Park Superintendent, GENV JOHN CARD GRAVES, Is a great hustler and evidently means business.-- If Buffalo's parks don't shine under his management, I'll second the motion to divide them into building Iota. The General doesn't look 59 and I dare say he doesn't feel that eld, but he's had a very evertful life. -.. Although a lawyer and a student of economic and municipal affairs, he never had much taste for tha law and hi3 active practice covers only about five years, although he was '"admitted" In l?62..'He's been a resident here since 1S67. coming hither from old Herkimer County. He was a i.-a niber of the National Guar! for ), is a conspicuous Free liasona H. B. G. combination, and even a trip to Washington to consult Col. Alexander was necessitated. The fight against Hazel may not make itself felt ot the Assembly Convention, but it wii be "on" in earnest -when the delegation meet at the state conclave. An effort probably will be made to, steal the delf egates, which is one of. the most note-able of the Republican political games, .-Collector Brendel wants Colonel Alexander to make a fight for the place of Harvey J. Hurd on. the State Committee. - popular favorite In social circles and one of the most genial gentlemen it Buffalo. He is a great lover of ' the parks and his experience as. a' Park Commissioner serves him well In his pew capacity as director .of parks. . It's all very well and patriotic, and a good advertisement, too, for my young and peppery friend, ROWLAND BLENt NERHASSETT MAHANY to recruit a regiment of volunteers. He offered his services simultaneously to the PreBi dent and Governor. It would have been embarrassing for the ardent patriot if both had sent acceptances; but R, B. M. could . have accepted a colonelcy and. a , brigadier-generalship J at one swoop, I presume: But wly should 1,000 or 1,200 men men accept or follow the lead pf such a colonel as R. B. M.T He has shouldered a good many things since he emerged on earth In 6 but I don't believe he ever shouldered a gun or knows the business end of a sword.' I'd like to see him in a colonel's uniform--he'd be a Sight for tn8 32d ,District-r but I'd hate to be in his regiment any P where near old Blanco's 150,600 warriors. I'm, afraid 'he'd forges Jiri'S1 tacucs and' substitute- his owa.

Joe came near dying of Bright's disease or fright--but, a" I see him walking two or three miles every day, I presume he feels Bright-er than ever. Well, I'm glad he didn't pass in his chips, for he's a genial man (away from the gas house) and the Aldermen would miss him. It's a coincidence but I bear that the "books" are convalescing rapidly. . Is 'Rastus preparing to emigrate to Cleveland? He has recently issued a llttls volume entitled "0-jrapralive Statistics." The book shows the cost of maintenance in the cities of Buffalo,, Detroit, Milwaukee and Cleveland. He dates It "April 1, 1898," and it's an April ' fool joke on Buffalo, all right and all wrong. This bright Comptroller of ours publishes to the world that Cleveland's population is 380,000 and Buffalo's 375,-, 000! If it is not too late, I hope Mayor Diehl will confiscate and destroy this sort of ostly advertising matter. If, Buffalo hasn't got 25.000 more population than Cleveland, I'll give Mr. Knight a pass to the Forest City, i n y.,.u p That's -a nice trick Gen. Gobin .and" the ' Pennsylvania. Republicans have played pn the Grand Army of the- Ro-n frfiblks, but it won't go. Gobin 1 Com-"1 mander-ln-Chlef of the G.A. Hi.-: and J the Quay;tes last week named him for Jjleutenapt-Governor. Of course Gobin will do one of the two things He'll either decline the nomination or resign as Commander-in-Chier. He's in a oaa way, now. If he refuses to resign, he'll drag the G. A. R. Into politics and disgrace himself, and the order in the Keystone State. If he resigns his high office as the leader of 300,000 old heroes, he'll be excoriated for valuing a political office of minor importance to one of the most honorable and coveted dig nitles in America. If Gobin doesn't decline the political lackey's position tendered by Quay and tries to hold on to the G. A. R. leadership, he should be fired out . of the ordr. It's rather late in the day to attempt such a wholesale delivery of the G. A. R. to the "Pa." politicians of Matt Quay's stripe. What will Gobin do? . ' ' VISIONS GF WEALTH I BJT ' ;WVBHTOB. S. S.' ROGERS SYRACUSE COUIJPN'T SEW ANY GOIJB BRICKS IK. : BISOSTTOWJf. OF Syracuse has a man named S. 6. Rogers but he's not a bit like Buffalo's S. S. R. The Syracusan Is an Inventor and he's telling everybody about his discovery t?X of a perpetual motion machine, ' The greater-1 ban-Edison Syracusan tried to sell his machine to a Buffalo man. The Post of Syracuse thus tells the story: S. S. Rogers of No. 625 Burnet Avenue, the inventor of the so-called perpetual motion machine, who has been in Buffalo for the past five weeks, displaying his machine In the hopes of Interesting capitalists in it, has returned to this city very much grieved over his experience. Mr. Rogers took to Buffalo an iron machine of his own construction, which has been on exhibition at his home, and several Buffalonlans, in company with .a Mr. Talmage, who was the means of having Mr. Rogers go West, visited him at his boarding place and all seemed very much interested in - the machine. . Mr. Talmage Is said to have Anally told Mr. Rogers that he had succeeded ia so interesting a certain man that he was about to offer $100,000 fcr the machine and the right to manufacture It' Mr. Rogers, waited for the 1100,000 man . to appear, but he never came, . Finally Mr. Talmage made overtures to buying an interest, but the deal fell through, ''Mr. Talmage, - however, was a constant visitor at the boarding , house ana he tried every scheme imaginable," said Mr. Rogers, "to get me to loan him the machine or some of its parts. -as he was anxious to more thoroughly convince the $100,000 man of the possibilites of the machine. But I did not let any person take the machine away from my sight, as I was very suspicious.'' , Mr. Rogers also says that In his absence from the house suspicious persons asked the landlady if they could step inside and see the wonderful machine. He believes tha: they were trying to steal the machine In his 'absence. After five weeks of patient waiting and visions of J100.000, be decided that he could do no business and accordingly made plans to return to his home, j-In the, rear of the house 'where he was boardtntr there was a srall manhtn hr filled with pieces of machinery of all de scriptions. This shop was not m operation, but was used as a sort; of storehouse for an . adjoining factory. After making all preparations to start, Mr, Rogers went j me snop, wners ne ns,i exniblted and kept the machine under lock and key, and the machine had disappeared. He was not much alarmed over his loss nd in rummaging about ia the -shop he happened to stumble over a portion of the machine that had been carelessly hidden beneath a. pile of old iron. He knew then that the rest of the parts must be somewhere about, r t ' Mr. Rogers took the part he had found una piacea it m enarse qi tne landifldv. and after a few ctianges in the cart ha '""uu wmt.n re eiukicu u uspiess n returned to this city, very must out of patience.

Emerson Favors the Military Training of Boys in Our Schools, THE UNPISCIPLIN.ED CONDITION pf the recruits recently added to the National Guard , organizations' , has awakened the eyes of military men 'and others in this country to the necessity of establishing in the public schools a regular system of military training. - Of the young men in this country who grow up tq manhood It la astonishing what a small percentage of them has received ,v any, military training whatever. Of course with, a war like that now pendlngj, this' deficiency is not perl-ous as It is believed that Spain f an be conquered without any unusual demand for soldiers. In case, however, any of the first class powers of Europe should become Inveigled with the United States the weakness of this country in thia respect would be serious. ' Trained! Soldiery t Europe. Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia and the minor powers of Europe all maintain standing armies of enormous size. Hardly a boy rows to -manhood In Germany put serves a term of years in tha German army. The same is practically true of all the continental nations. Everj' citizen ta a trained sol-flier What k splendid display of power the United States cpuld make were this true of this (country! But while t ia contrary to the traditions and policy of this country to maintain a large -standing army, it is vital to our success in war to so train the boys of America that they may bring not only courage arid Intelligence Into battle, but also that strict discipline and military knowledge without which an army is a farce. What iHHtary Tralnlnar Does. ' Military training not only fits a young man for' war, but it is good physical exercise. It j develops the muscles, straightens the bpdy and adds grace and suppleness to the figure. It aleo teaches discipline, obedience and promptness.! But above all it Inspires a spirit of practical patriotism and constantly reminds the youth of his. duty to his country whenever duty calls, These and, many other reasons. may be said in its favor and today public sentiment was never stronger in favor of making military training compulsory in the schools of the city and the Stats, j Supt. Emerson's Views. Superintendent of Education Henry P. Emerson was asked his opinion of such a proposition. -"I THINK IT IS A VERY, GOOD PLAN,' replied Mr. Emerson, "and has many good j feature Boys learn how to take care of themselves and it has a beneficial;, effect generally. - "This plan like many others, however, good they may be, is blocked by the lack of funds to carry it out. It is necessary to uniform the boys and the first question to arise is where is the money to come from? "You know we did try this plan In a small way last year tn many of the schools. We formed the boys into companies so as to parade during the G. A. R. Encampment. It was only a par tial success, however. In some schools the .principals didn't take much interest in it. In other schools the pupils were lukewarm, but the most trouble was experienced In getting officers to drill the boys. We were promised officers from the fort, but they didn't keep their engagements regularly. The boys would form for drill and wait for their drill masters. When they failed, to appear the lads became discouraged and and when a Post reporter visited him in jhis small shop at the rear of his home yesterday he was nara at work on a machine similar to the one he left in Buffalo, except that it is of wood. Mr. Rogers - expects some people from Corry, Pa., tomorrow and he is working with all possible speed to have his machine completed by then. He extends an invitation to all those who would care to see his invention, and they may call any time after Wednesday.; He says he will be only too glad to explain to them "the mysteries of perpetual motion."

"Eliminating objections -to- the. expense problem which affects the feasibility and the merit of the system the chief objection comes from those who urge that we are taking, on to the schools too many things.' i - - "Another practical objection comes in the shape of places to drll. In the summer time he boys could flril out doors, but that is impossible in winter and at present there areno halls suitable for the purpose. -i "It is a controverted question. The experiment has been tried " in some States and I believe it is now an essentia) feature of education in the high schools of Massachusetts where,, so far as I know, it has worked well." The following despatch to THE TIMES from Albany gives the views of State Superintendent Skinner on $he question: ... v V , Traditions Hamper Supt. Skinner. Hon. Charles R. Skinner,- State Superintendent of Publio - Instruction, holds some very decided ideas as to tbefeaslbil!ty and practicability of military training in the "schools of the State, for some time it has been the custom of the department to frown down all attempts to make ' military training in the schools- compulsory and Mr. Skinner holds true to the traditions of the office in this respect. When questioned about the; matter by the Albany correspondent of THE TIMES Mr. Skinner said: "For many years past attempts have been made to. es tablish a regular system of military training in our schools, but it has always been overwhelmingly defeated, The reasons for this are strong and numerous. ' In the first place, the hours for such training or drilling would eut materially into the regu&r, hours for instruction in the various institutions. I have always held that any military training carried on in ' any of the schools should be after the regular hours and voluntary with the pupils although I do not object to callsthen ics or other exercises which may be classed in the same line or aa as lean ing towards military training. Qnesttem of B.rlnc Uniform.. "Another reason why no attempt should be made to force military train ing In the public schools is that the purchase of uniforms and equipments which would be necessary would either have to fall upon the State or upon the families of the pupils. In the first instance it would be highly unjust to force the State to pay for these uni forms and in the second place it would be nothing more nor less than a crime to compel the families of many of the students to make these purchases. In the latter event many of the pupils would undoubtedly be kept away from sohool through this additional expense which would fall seriously on many families. ' -vS, V '-, ";:('. ..... , ' .
