Aug. , l&—The city is alive "with members of Uie United libpr jMirty and in the corridors of thé hotels what the new" party will do, what its effects on the old parties Avill be and other similar questions are the topics of discussion. John MtsMackin says the party will certainly noni-inato a candidate for president, a»id that It will riiiiko speculation on the result a very in- , tiicfite liusinesa.  The convention was called to ni^er at the Alhnnnbm rink at 1:45 p. in.-;^with nearly 300 delegat«! prosoiit. Upon the entrance together of Dr. McGlyijri arid "Henry Geoi^e" they were jîivun à>i ovation' ând'the ipreliiti-inary businnss w:t.s rapidly transited. iniuh K. Murjiliy, of New York, called the convontidii l!o onler and T^uis F, Post was-made temporary chairman. Everybody with crmleiitials was admitted to the tempo-rary organization and thus the Socialists got Keata The choice of the usual committees on reMlutions, organization and ci*edéntials took iill tho altortioon and was the occasion of gfKjd ileal of i-ommotion..  Although tliis is the ftrst New York state convention of. the party the delegatpsare well suppliikl with parliamentary quips. For the first hour itliere was peaca About 5 o'clock skirmishing Iwgan, and tiirnufJ-into a free-for-all fight that lasted until .5 ::iO.. Points of order, amendmoiits and substitutea were. rapidly fired at the chairman. He disppseil of them, however, with a great déal ofc skill, and the i-onimiW^ construction wro agreed to, as was à tliat all resolutions be re-  forioil to the protier committee without do-liato.  Then a reo<?ss was taken to give the delegations an opjiortunity to nanne -their men, and when the convention was palUjd to^ order again at 4::50, the committees were an-nôuncMi .1  . When the names, had been rood a motion was made for adjininiment until S) o'clock Thursday. A stormy debate followed, and at times the confusion wn-i simply treitieiv dous. An amendment making the adjournment; until 0 o'clock Wednesday evening raised, if jjossible, a still greater turmoiL Tiie matter was finally iabl^d. Wakeman Bot the convention by the ears with a mo^ tion dii-eeting the committee on credentials to ■ reptirt in advance of the committee on organization. John McMackin, of New York, i>I>oke in opposition to the motion, .which would involve a wast«i of time.  William Penn Rogers, who was one of the eloquentmenof the convention, had a word or two to say about harmony ,in a speech in ad-voiracy of the motion. Wakeman and'Field, of New York, and Mngee and Murray; of Kings, spoke in a similar strain,- while Croas-  one Pjf the editoj? ot "^e New ^York  The convention finally decided that the committee on credentials must report at 7 o'clock Wedneslay evening. DK McGlynn and Henry Goorge did not do any talking. Dr. McGIynn seemed amazed at the uproar." The rejection of tho eight New Vork Socialistic delegates wjis a chief cause of turmoil A black-haired" New York Socialist made a revolutionary speech. He was not recognized by the chair. The motion" to have, the committee on credentials report at 7 o'clock in the evening was denounced as an attempt to have the committee rush through its business without giviitg suflicient time to taking of testimony. The motion to adjourn till- 9 o'clock in tho morning was also denounced as an effort to unduly delay^he platform com mittiîe and prolong the e<jnvohtion. "  At 5:.S0, however, the con vention ad janrned till 7 o'clock p. rn., when W. T. .Crqssdale reported for the<Kimjnittee on credentiab that the committee wanted more time. • They were given till fl o'clock in the morning, and the business session was udjournetl for the  à committee from the TTnion Labor codp vention, headeil by John J. Junio, with 'nearly a full moniliorship.'met Woilnèsday forenoon and prepared to make overtures to the United I^abor convention. They propose, if recognized on ternis of eqnality,'to withdraw their state ticket and unite upon a combination ticket They adhered to the terms of union laid down by the Rochester .convention. But the ovortures they sent to the Union Ijabor people had received no resj^nse up to a late hour in the ' afterbobn arid they had given up all hope' of recognition.  John McMackin seemk to have made a ruling that will control the United Labor convention, that none but members of that party without other alflliatious shall be recognized, and that the Union Labor party be not recognized or affilia^ with. This rule excludes distinctive ¡Socialist delep^t,ions, as well as the Union Labor piirty confèrees. Mr McMackin . Tuesday uiglit 'denounced the Union Labor party as a body of tramps and pirates, and this expression created mtfeh feeling in Juriio's conunittee, which retorts that the New York city delegations in the convention are nearly all members of Tommany hall, and are taking care of the asjurations of candidates for iegis- -lative ofilces.  Many of the delegates are in favor of heading the state ticket with the name of Henry George. McMackin is quoted^ saying that he does not, expect the party to elect its ticket, but did not think success impassible, and looked for -a veiy large ^oto. %  It is pretty safe to assume from present in^ dications tluit Georjge will go on' the ticket nà secretary of state arid .iltet the' ¡other oflflc^' will bo filled from;th© interior of the state. George is regarded as. the . ti^imp card, ."^.ere is no possibility of Dr. McGlyrin being piit bri" thie ticket, and if he is honiiria^ his frïends say he won't accept. . ii;  There were about .p^p}e at tba pi^-^ meeting in th'e eyening.

The Frontier Still Excited Over Colorow—  Urgent Call for Troops. . Denver, Col., Aug. 18.—Late news from thé frontier is quite as exciting as that of Tuesday. A private telegram from Adj. Gen. West to Governor Adams says that Sheriff Kendall returned to Meeker Wednes-. day morning, accompanied by four Utes ■H>ho came for council When ready to return to Colorow they as"ked for an escort and when, beyond the settlements they turned their attention again to slaughtering the settlers. Another message from Sheriff Kendall to Gen. West, says: "Send men and arms at once; the Indians have raised hell again."  United Statea Marshall Hill telegraphed Gen. Croofc, at Omaha, that the ossist-ahceof United States troops was urgently needed, as he is advised by private dispatches that the Indians are gradually combining and working into a position in the mountains affording almost Impregnable protection, and where .feed,.game, and fuel are plenty. He is confident that the old chief will fight tu the bitter end. _  Ifo Posse Coinltattis.  Washington Citt, Aug.

He is said to Have told a friend that he was on the eve of making a short tour of the continent, but his ' movements since his departure from Ireland hâve been kept so completely in the dark that this statement may have Ijoen made for thie purpose .of throwing news hunters off the scent, or it may not have been made at alL Absqliitêly nothing definite can be leai ned of his intentions through the ordinary procesa ( of intorv'.ewing, and as a matter of fact the gentieriian n'as become almost as inaccessible as thè queen herself;  National Opera-^akes Its Exit.
