LONDON*" Sept 3.—Th« first full French Cabinet meeting for a month will be held to-day, according to a dispatch from Paris to The Times. The whole question of Franco-Turklsh rela-^ tlona will be discussed, as well as the arrangements for the fMes in connection ' with the visit of Emperor Nicholas.  ^ M. Delcasa^, the dispatch proceeds, has been taking steps to secure harmony of opinion between France and Russia at Conltantlnople.  - There are signs that diplomatic circles everywhere are realizing the growing ne-oeaslty for a sort of moral concert of the Powers regarding Turkish affairs. Nobody believes that Germany would consent to act as arbiter In the present dispute, If the story that the Porte has requested such Intervention be true. There 7 are reasons' for believing that Germany will give moral support to France In this typical case. In which France appears as the champldn of Europe.  Ifeanwhlle, Turkey Is endeavoring to deal directly with the two hitherto disregarded creditors, MM. Lorando and Tu-blnl, but this will not put an end to the difficulty, for Ambassador Constans will not be permitted to return to Constantinople until the Sultan directly concedes all that France asks.

PARIS, Sept. .3,—The result of the action of Munir B'^y, the Turkish Ambassador, la coming to Paris, In spite of the rupture of Franco-Turklsh relations, and. in the most open way, giving a fête at the Turkish Embassy on Sunday' In honor of the anniversary of the Sultan’s accession to the throne. hsLB been that the French Government sent him, the same afternoonT a rcque.st to le-ave France Immediately. Munir Bey departed for Switzerland that evening.  Munir Bey will only return ” to Paris ogainst the wishes of the French Government unle.ss the dispute Is settled.  It Is rumored that .a naval dUislon will be ordered to Turkish waters to-day.  M. Constans, the Ambassador to Turkey, had another conference with the Foreign Minister, M. Delcaujsé, yesterday. The Government Is determined to compel Turkey to fulfill her entire obligations. Unless the Sultan yields shortly he will find the bin against him Increased by a number of other outstandlïlg claims of Frenchmen which will make'an appreciable addition to the sum new demanded.  like the Mad Bof In -^ЗагЬага Frletchle.” The other .parte, however, are generally ’well played, the American actors In the cast, like Nell CBrten as Waddles, quite equaling their EngRsh associates. ■  THE CAPE COtONY SITUATION.

At that time the Columbia led by a good quarter of a mlie. The course was triangular, ten nautical miles to a leg, the first being a beat to windward,"east by south; the »econd a reach, with the wind about abeam, and the third a run before the wind,-which hauled to make it another »tretcht with the wind abeam, until the. race w’a» declared off.  After crossing the line at exactly the same moment, six seconds after gun. fire, with the Gonstltutlort In the windward berth, the Columbia worked oyt. and, getting her wind tfree, forged ahead. The Constitution tacked off shore and shortly after the Columbia followed, going up to windwârd and passing her. From then .on to the windward mark H was nothing but a steady gain for the-old boat, and when both had rounded it was found that the Columbia had gained four minutes and flity-fJve seconds, the worst beating the X’^^onstitutlon had as yet received.  . On the second leg the wind fell very light, and the Constitution, bringing It up with her, gained BUghtly> After rounding the second mark, four minutes and thirty seconds behind, and starting for honae, the Constitution carried up about all thé wind there was and passed her rival. Then the freeze came up again, and the Columbia once more shot Ahead, Shortly after this the race was called off, with the Columbia well in the lead. It will be resalled tomorrow afternoon, the start being at 2 o^cIock.  Off Brenton's Reef the wjnd was light at 11 ;.30 o’clock, when a postponement of the start was signaled from F. YV'. Vanderbilt’» steam yacht Conqueror, which carried the Regatta Committee. There was a light roll of th^ sea setting In from the northeast, the sky- was cloudy, and the air humid. The Regatta Committee hoped for a stiff southwester, of which there were many signs that did not come true, the wind hovering between east-northeast and east-southeast until I2;:tô. when the flags were sent up denoting that a triangular course had been decided on. A few minutes later the flags giving the courses were hoisted. They were east by south ten miles—a beat to 7(<wiadwarrt. southwest-half-west, ten miles, a stretch with the wind on the port i>eam, and north by west-half-weat, ten miles, à run before the wind.    7  bVEB THE LIKE TOGETHER. a  The tug Coastwise set'Ae marks. The tug" Unique carried club members and gu«\st.s. Sir Thomas Lipton. with George L. Waj.'ion, the designer of the Shamrock H .; Willtam Jameson, the famous yachting am-.ateur; Ratsey, the sallmaker, -and Capt.-Sycamore, the skipper of the Shamrock II., watched the race with eager Interest from iIk bridge of the steam yacht Erin. Com^-inodore Lev.iSo:Câ.«*s Ledyard was on the steam yacht ColonUi, and with him were : eX-Commodoro Edward M. Brown, Rear t’ommodore C. L. F. Robinjson. J, Malcolm Forbes, and Secretary J. V, S. Oddie, members of the t .iallenge Committee.  'The prvparator> signal was fired at 12:50, the lightship forming the weather end of the line and the Conqueror the lee extremity. 'The warning gtin at 12:5.'» found both boats Jogging clo.se down outside the line, with the Columbi i In tin- lead. Barr; finding that-he was ahead of gunfire, worked bakk ajid forth kUliiig time. Meanwhile, the Constitution was coming dovvn on him in fine .style, and when a minute and a half before the .starting gun. both boats headed for -the lino, Capt. Rhode.n had the C4)iistttutlou in the wyather berth. -The (’olumbla, however, had ar good yard more, and worked out to get her wind clear.  At 1 o'clock came the starting gun, and six seconds later the two racers crossed the linc preciscly at the same moment on the starlM»ard tack, and with the Constllu-tnm not more than flity feet on the weather i OÎ the Columbia. Unco away, the old boat ' began to show' her worth. She jumped I ahead, and wa.s sooii backwinding the Con-sUiutio'n, Two minutes after cro.ssing, the t’on.stiiution put about an- the port tack.  ! The- Colunabia followed, knd Barr, with charactorl.stlc smartne.s.e. gave his boat a fisherman’s infi and piitnted her on ' the ( weatlier nf the Constltirtlon. It. was the oitL.story-the weath*'r berth and its almost Inevitable consequences. - ^    .  On this port tack the yacht» stood for perhaps three miles, the Columbia gaining .'••madily and the Constitution gliding to lee-wanl. At 1:2-'» thé yachts went on the starboard tack, there being one-elghlh of a mile between them. The wir.d now’ came in vaHable and fluky, and the yachts Indulged In frequmt tacks. At 2:4M the Columbia; cros.sed the bows of the Constitution a good quarter of a mile to windward and gaming all the time. The wind freshened at this stage, and the weather mark came'lhto view, four miles east-southwest of Seaconnet River.  In the .short tacks It was noticed that Columbia shot to windw ard wonderfully in stay.«, while the Constitution at this work' was rather a laggard. -\t 3:11 aW the Colum-bia rounded tbe m.ark, setting a righting Jibtopsail of symmetrical »hape and rare lugging capacity, and steered for the second mark with the wind abeam. The ,Constitution rounded at    having  been beaten 4 minutes and 55 seconds on the first leg.    t  CONSTITUTION FORGES AHEAD.  The Erin was also close by at the turn, and many glasses were leveled on ..the two vessels. The jlbtopsall of the Constitution was'the same she^ carried on Saturday; and wa» of poor cut and ability when compared with that of the Colum-bla^ The wind fell light', and the Constitution picked up a little at various times during thé jeach. Balloon foresails were set, and the Constitution luffed out to the eastward In an unsuccessful wind-hunt. At .3 4T;<X» the Columbia set a’'balloon'Jlbtopsall, the Constitution following heir example almost Immediately.  'othlng noteworthy occurred until the second mark was rounded by the Columbia at 4.50:40 and by the Constitution at 4•.'//10 the'difference between the tWo being four minuteaand thirty seconds, showing a gain by the Con.Htltutlon of fifteen ' Kccondij. After rounding almost w flat c^m prevailed for nearly twenty minutes; the t’onstltutlon here showed marvelous ablHtj-^" na a drifter. The Columbia set her spln-uakeir but. the wind hauling, took It in again after a few minutes. The ConsUlUr lion lowered her spinnaker pole, but did not set the sail. Under her balloon Jlbtop-sall she crawied up very, slowly, »nd at t .5:.i8 .she passed Columbia and was the lead-’ Log boat. The wind came a little fresher and the Constitution Increased her lead. It freshened still more, when Columbia luffed out and passed the Constitution at 8:17 with singular rapfdlty. and was a quarter of a mile in the lead when the time limit was \ip. The official table follows: -  . -    Ftrat    Second  Name.    7* Start. Mark. Mark.

Immediately after the race was declared off the Erin steamed back to the harbor and Sir .Tbamas Lipton came a.^horc and was driven to the residence of Commodore  mlttee. and the owner» of the Columbia and Cbnstltutlo». The affair was entlfely Informal and there was no spe^hmaklng; The first formal welcome to Sir Thomas by the New York Yacht Club will be given at the new clubhouse In New York at some later date. Immediately after the ,dinner to-night the Erin, with Sir Thomas, and his party on board, started for Sandy Hook.  The present »eries of races will end Wednesday. Whether or not there will be other races after that the Regatta Committee Is not yet able to announce. It Is said that another new suit of sail» has been made for the Constitution at the Her-reshoff works at Bristol. They are nearly finished and some of them may be tried to-morrow.  MR. BRYAN’S LABOR DAY TALK.  ■ t  8ayg the Wealth* Froducere of the Country Are Not Repelving Fair Treatment.  KANSAS CITY, Sept. 2.-William J. Br>’ah,i delivered the I5abor Day oration here to-day. Taking for his text the Scriptural words, ” Muzzle not the ox that treadeth out the com,” he said;  ” Each decade of our history shows greater production of wealth, and the men who produce it have less to show for It. Is thla m good condition? A right condition? The solution of the problem» that confront us Is In legislation—not In legislation for or against classes, but for equal justice before law. The strike Is to-day the only weapon the laborer has, but It Is weak and Inefficient.    "    '  7 ” If the laboring men were half as active on elcctlbn day^as they are In enforcement of their strikes, they W'ould wield a force that would right the evils which be--sei them  “The greatest danger of to-day 1» private monopoly. Not that any one monopoly i.s worse than others, but the principle is bad which tolerates any private monopoly.    .  ” I have Jveard that the true solution of the problem is for the laboring man to divide profits with the trusts. That has been given as an argument for the iru.sts. Such a thing would be Immoral and Impolitic. It would be like dividing the spoils of the highw'aymen. it would be permitting a man to rifle your pockets and then offer to divide the proceeds with you,  ” To-day. the only people who sympathize with you are the others Who toll In other part» of the Ia>rd’s'vineyard/ in the present great steel strike, where did the first expressions of sympathy come from’: From Texas. They have no steel mills there. They are .farmers. They are tillers of She soil and laborers, like your.selves. I want to warn you to resist the overtures of the trust. Beware when corporations, ask you to join them.    .  ” The farmers can stand the encroachments of the trusts longer than you can. The farmers live off their farms. When trust prices go so high that the farmer.s cannot buy they will cat the products of their own Industry. Their wives can even go back to the primitive method of mak-Tijg clothes by wea%'lng. But when the far->Hi* r can no longer pay the tru.«it prices then there wlH~.be no more demand for the products of your toll and you can inake no more wages.  " The offer of the trusts to divide with the laboring man Is a nUfall, Uan you trust the corporations to divide honestly? No. How mu:iy of you would like to try a lawsuit, when the Judge <m the bench is the opposing party to the suit?  •• There are good Judges, good Juries, yet do you want Judges and juries to try your cases when they are interested in the outcome themselves’; When you permit private monopoly to dictate term» of division, then you place yourselves Wholly at their mercy. Y'o« allow them to water their stock, snd then expect them to divide with labor on a just basis.  " You-are witnessing a battle between, labor and the great steel tru.st. This trust Avas willing to unionize some of Its mills, but would have others open to non-imion labor. Why? Because the trust wants some mlll.s that It can depend on In tlie event of a strike. It Is an unequal strug-  ?Ie. for the trust can shut down Its mill.« or a year, hut laboring men cannot live a year without work, it is your duty to cnish roonopolic.*; with the best resource at your command—the hallbt,  ” Government by Injunction Is an iniquitous system, and one of the questions demaiuHng .attention .at the hands of the American people. The courts are the servants of the people, and for a court to rule by Injunction Is for a court to dispense with n jury .'ind to condemn a man for violating a law that the court Itself made.  Under the process of government by In-junclioh. the Uourt constlnites Itselt the power to make the laws, execute them, and I pass judgment on the offender. The whole thing i.^ wrong. Under the .system a number of cmploNcrs x’Hn organize themselv«‘s, go into court and get an order prohibiting others from organizing fbr the same pur-po.se. They ran get an order prohibiting workingmen from getting other workingmen to refrain from working. The ,employ-i-rs can organize to crush lanor. but others nrc forbidden to organize  “I am opposed to Government by Injunction. not that It Is directed especially agalhsurthe laboring man. but that It doe» away with trial by jury. It Is a menace.  not onlv to one class, but to all. It 1» within the power of the laboring man to do a wav with the system.” " -l,alrr Mr. Brvan addressed a meeting in Kan.sas Ultv. Kan., frolng over the same ground MS in this city. He ral.sed a laugh at the outret when, on taking a position 5he’tfred from the sun. he said:  ” I have been In the .«hade for several months now and I’m u.^^ed to It.”  MAEYIJlND~cbAirTEADE?

Wana Simms, the cook who first reported the murder to the police, and who was placed under arrest yesterday morning, was arraigned before Magistrate Bennettf this morning and remanded In the custody of Coroner Banning.    ,  Frank Denalngton, the wa! ^r who was detained as a witness yestc day, was allowed to go free to-day. after telling a straight story of his whereabouts Saturday night and Sunday morning.  Drs.^^YVelss. Fleming* Van Patten, and Fowler, who performed the autopsies on the murdered men. reached the opinion that they were killed while sleeping, but would not discuss their conclusions until their re-port had been made to the Coroner.  Chief of Police Foley, after thlrty-slx hours* work on the case, .«aid that the the-orv advanced by Simms, the cook, that the men had been ktUed by burglars who entered the clubhouse by forcing three rear doors, did not appear to be worth anything, -•n don’t think,” he said, ” that these men were murdered by burglar.«. They were done to death by some one In that club-hou.se. The evidences of burglars' were fixed up by the murderer or murderers to cover up their track«. The broken doors and the broken window through which the burglars were supposed to have gained entrance look as If they had been forced open from the Inside.  " Buckenhoff gave u.« his address as 11 Engine Place. Yonkers, where he said he slept Saturday night. The landlady of the lodging house stated, how’ever, that he was not there on that night, and that she had not seen him since Friday night. We know that he was In Mount Vernon at 11 o'clock on Saturday night, because some one whom we know saw him at the trolley .station then. Buckenhoff told this |>er.son that he was going up the road, that he was going to Yonkers, but he was not seen to board a  car.”    ‘  The Siwanoy Country Club is housed In ihe old Corcoran mansion, an old-fashioned fremfc dwelling,- whl'h nas been refitted for the club’s purposes.

Scott was then em-  **'scoU‘s brother-ln-law. the Rev. Granville Hunt of the Grace Chapel (colored) Baptist «'hurch of thl.s city, .«aid to-night that he believed Simms Innocent of the crime.  “One week ago Ia.«t Wednesday.  Hunt said,.. "ЯсоП told Simms that he could get three extra waiters for rite club’s stag party on the' following Saturday. Simms went to New Y'ork and engaged one man. who was to bring two of his friends. I don't know tile names of these men. One of them was Kept over Sunday, and It was understood that he should go to the club again last Friday; but he disappointed Scott A man w-as obtained for Saturday, who I don't know, I don’t know that there was anv difference of any kind. The -men first wanted M a day and car fare, but Dave ^Scott) did not let Simms offer them  **^*Scott was here Saturday night to see his 8i.«ter, whom I married, and his mother, who Is very 111 here. Just after he left Stevens telephoned from the club. I told him Scott had just left. He said he would be here Just the same to see his wife, who stays with us. and lie asked me to wait up for him. I sat here until 12 .40 and then went to bed. thinking that probably Scott told him things were all right and that he decided not to come,    ,    _  ” When I saw Simitis to-day he told me that the blood on hts feet and.^hls nightshirt came from :the blood nn the and the bed.« In the room where he found Scott and Stevens. I was SImms’.s pastor six vear.«. and have confidence In him. Far from being a rough man. he was gentle and wept so easily that he was sometimes called ’Jer’mlah. the weppin nronhet ’    1 can’t think of him doing any  thing of that kind. Scott pral.«ed him to me only a short time ago. He .«aid bimms aiwavs dl<> his work right.” ^  > tYlien Denalngton. who was detained on suspicion, war. arralirned In court, he told Magistrate Bennett that he had been occa-blonally employed by the golf club. Scott would put him to work when there were manv golf players or members at the club. He was so employed on Saturday afternoon. and remained at the clubhouse until 11 o'clock, helping Scott. Stevens, and Simms to clean up for Sunday, when he went to his home, and was asleep before midnight. On the way to the club the next morning he heard of the murder. He said that when he left the clubhouse the three men were In the best of humor, and were i laughing together, and that there had been ho difference between them.  Simms, when arraigned, told the story as he has told It from the start. He claimed to have been awakened by the growling and barking of his skye terrier, chaifted to his bedpost, and hearing a scream and Stevens crying out, ” Oh. Dave.’ ’’ He told again how he had hurried Into the room occupied by the others to find one dead and the other expiring. As for the blood stains, he wore a night shirt reaching to hi.s ankles, and when he leaned over-Scott’s body theihem of the shirt touched the floor and was thus stained. He .«aid that he was ordinarily a sound sleeper, and that after he had put In a hard day’s work, as on Saturdav. It required considerable to awaken'him. He thu.« accounted for having slept through any noise that occurred In the room close to his own. preceding the outcry which finally brought him out of bed to Inve.stlgale.  No trace has been found yet of the rash box of the club.whlch was In Scott's custody. and Is thought to have contained about fliW.  4 Scott was undoubtedly hit with the Iron of the bloodstained putter, found near hts bodv. and the blow rightly delivered would. In the oolnlon of the physicians who ner-formed the autopsy-have felled him. Thus, if the blow preceded the stabbing, there might have been but little noise attendant upon the deed, except the falling of Scott, who was a %-ery heavy man. Stevens rt celved a sfmllar blow, wrhlch fractured his skull The stab wounds Insured the death of the men. and «юте of the cuts were  fiendish and were thought by police to mark a crime not of simple robbery, but of vengeance.    ,    *  Buckenhoff will be taken before Magistrate Bennett to-morrow morning, and on ChleY Foley’s request will be committed, pending- the Inquest to be begun orr Wednesday. ft is thought that Scott and he had some angry words, but the police refused to give out any information they had about the relations of the two men.  The bodies of Scott and Stevens are bé ng embalmed, and Mr. Hunt, who is attending to the burial arrangements, said that he hoped to send Scott's body to Baltimore to-morrow night and to ship Stevens's buUy to his old home in Petersburg, Ya.  A Htorv In circulation around the cUib-hou.se this afternoou had It that one of the ntighbor’s servants heard sounds of an altercation in the clubhouse early Sumiay morning. The story was said to have been told by a servant at- Ihe adjoining re.«i-dence of Martin L. Sykes, but Mr. Sykc.« » coachmen, who knew of the story, said he thought it came from William Carson, a Chester Hill dairyman. Mr. Carson said that he was up early Sunday morning to get out on his milk route, that he h«>ard no altercation, and was sure that no dog barked in the clubhouse at that time. He raid that he had been wakened by very slight noises ever since four of his cows gouout of the pasture and were put In tho pound. The police also had heard of the story of a quarrel early that morning, but had no confirmation to give.  A butcher’s knife, similar to the bloodstained knife found hear Scott’s body, was discovered bv Chief Foley to-day at the foot of the stairs. It wa.« clean, however, and was not thought to give any further clue to the case.    .    ^  Before Scott became the steward at the club. la»t July, he. with a man named Winston, ran the restaurant in Columbia Hall, off Sixth Avenue, near First Street. There was some difference between them, and Scott. Mr. Hunt says, sold his interest to Winston at W*ln.«ton s price to end the trouble and then dropped the matter. Winston then a.ssoclated himself with Aiken, who bought Winston Out and runs the res-tauraqt »lone now.  ATTITUDE OF MR. SHEPARD.

Special lo The New York Ttmet,  BALTIMORE, Sept. 2.—Mrs. Susan Powell Cottman and Joseph C. Howard are In litigation over the guardianship of the two Infant children of the late Mrs, Ora Waldron Powell. It was stated to-day that the matter will be carried to the New York courts. Cordelia Ellen Powell, one of the children, was brought before Judge Harlan In this city on Aug. 2 on a writ of habeas corpus sworn out by Mrs.' Cottman. The case was postponed, owing to Lhe absence of some of Mrs. Cottman’s. witnesses, and Judge Harlan gave the child to the custotiy of Mrs. Cottman until the hearing. The other child. Virginia Brooke I’owell, still la in the custody of Mr. Howard.  At the hearing before Judge Harlan It was said that Mrs. Powell, who In im»», after the death of her husband, brought the tw*o children East from California, was without funds, ard opened a boarding hou.se at Roland Park to supi»ort her.self. This is now denied by .some of Mrs. Powell’s relatives, who jiny that, while not wealthv. she brought' considerable money East with her. At the hearing here the onb*" motive given for Mr. Howard's interest in the children was the strong friendship which hail grown up between Mr.®. Howard and Mrs. I’owell, she having lived with them for some time. The mother. who died In New Y'ork. while with the Howards, left a will naming Mr Howard as gu.irdlan. The ta.«e has attracted much interest, owing to the social prominence of the Powell family. Mr. Howard Is at the head of a mining company.  refused to see bridal pair.

MÏÏER-FOLET FEIES PÍSS INTO RISTORY  What They Mean to the Second’s Leader and His Foe.  Those “On the Fence” Counted, Whil« the Thousande of Both Factions ^ Enjoy Themeelve».  It was a great day for Councilman Foiey and for Judge DIvver. For the people of the Second Assembly District, without distinction as to age. It was a tremendous occasion all around. For weeks they have looked forward to It. For days they have talked about it, and yesterday the constituents of the two men, who are maklrg a bitter fight for the leadership of tb» -east side district, drank of the cup of happiness that Comes to those who are »0 far favored as to have polltcal affiliation» that need expression in vigorous faabloo. Noq alt of them " drew bids ” for the chowdejr, and dinner. If every man who haa ** talked politics" In the district these few week» past had done so even the two big steamboats and the extra barge» would not Ixa^e begun to hold them.  But the next best thing to going torthe •• feed ” was to see the start, They might march in the parade, the color» of their favorite proudly adorning coat lapelm or If not that was there anything to hinder them from standing on the sidewalk to shout while the others passed byl Decidedly not. This is a free country, and Labor Day is an excusa for anything but labor. And shout they did lustily, without fear or favor, each for the man of hla choice. Some bad no choice. But they Just shouted’ anyhow. For wh&t’a the use «f a plcnUi if any one must keep quletf  A COUNT OF FACTIONS.  But to the men who are la politic» for •omething more than fun the day meant more. Up to yesterday, though both aides made claims, nobody felt absolutely certain about numbers or leaders. Now the line has been drawn.  There w as still soma doubt In a few minds as to Just whom Mg Ttm Sulltvan would support- That meant that little Tim was a dark horse, too. So, when the portly form of Councilman Foley appeared moving toward the Roosevelt Street pier, with Senator Sullivan and Sulltvan the younger in nls tialn, there was tremendous cheering on the part of the Councilman's friends.  " Big Tim’s wld us.” shouted a man In a while Fedora hat, with vigor. “ How kin we lose? ”  “ YVe can’t.” came the answer from a hundred throats. " I’addy Dlvver won’t be in the runnin’.”  Mr. Foley smiled the smile of a man who Is satisfied with himself and with life In general. He had a showing that would have pleased any candidate. At least 4,««s| strong, his followers marched with him. ard the cheers were deafening. Everywh*r« there was color. It was not only the Stars and Stripes that did honor to the day. The green flag, with the harp, fluttered from many windows, and banners and drapinga of green hung from door po.sta anti housetops. But there were German flags, too, and at one point the yellow flag of the Chinese, with the big dragon, fluttered in the breeze.  It’s hard times, sure, when they’ve got to muster In the rhlnks.” was the ob.«» r\a-tlon of a Dtvverlte at sight of the emblem.  As for the Italians, they seemed to bo pretty well dlvld«!. The name of Dlvvt-r and of Foley alternated on the lip.H of men whose dialect had a soft Slcllhin flavor. The DIvverltes were especially rejoiced at the fact that they had Italian.« in their parade, led by Charlie Baclgulup^v. .the Chinatown undertaker. He. too. has been a doubtful quantity, but he came out squarely for the present leader yesterday, and there was unrestrained joy In consequence. An«i If It needed anything more to make roseate the Wnpes o; the DIvverltes there was the presence of Snator Aheam.  “Sav. atn t we got tho boy.s, eh?” said one of Judge Dlvver's friends. " I ^es» veA lamk at that bunch. * Humpty ’ Hanover. the Mavor of Avenue C: Judge Bolle. Senator Featherson, Larry Delmourl There’s shinln' lights fer yer.”  *• Y'es.” interrupted another enthusiast, "and ain’t I just been shakln’ hands with Judge Josephs and Judge Hoffman?”  " Go on. yer kiddtn’ me. They didn’t shake hands with me."  Th» expressed doubt almost caused a fight, but the dispute was patched up.  The Foley party boarded the steamboat Magenta at Roosevelt Street and the overflow* crowd went In a barge. At about tho same time the DIvverltes were crowding.  strong. Into the steamboat Isabella and a. barge at the foot of Market Street. Both side.« carried Innumerable banners, and the line of march was punctuated with every kind of ear-spllttlng. nolse-maklng device. There was music of various kinds, from the fully-equipped band to tho ear-plerclng fife corps and the bagpipe.  In front of Judgo Dlvver's homo thero was a sign, " This Is where Mr. Dlvver lives. Tam Foley lives at 242 West Ono Hundred and Thlrty-.slxth Street. If tho district Is good enough to be leader in it ought to be good enough to live in."  THE FOLEY DEVICEa ^  Tho Foley party had Its own devices. One of tho most conspicuous was a wagon with large paintings on each side. Ono of these showed Judge D!\*ver In a palm garden, with a bottle of wine on tho table before which he sat. Underneath were tho words: " California—here’s where Div-ver was In IKri.” The reverse picture showed a cell In Sing Sing, with tho threa Election Inspectors sentenced in líéH. Tho accompanying words were: " You go hunt— I'll stick to you.” Yet another picture showed the leader on a run for an expres.» train labeled California, and the text. ** Ho who quits and runs away will bo beat on Primary Day."    • .  The Folev party got under way a few minutes ahead, and passed within hailing distance of the Isabella as she lay at her pier. Then mutual Interchanges of wit floated over the water, the nol.«e and distance making them sound like this:  “ Y'ou—you - Dlvver,    hurrah     to    ——  with Foley.”    „    -  On both boats there was free beer for everybody, but there was little disorder. The “ big fellows " soon left the deck, and found diversion In poker.    „    ,    ,  On board the l.«abella a couple of sleek-looklng men tried to start a gambling  ...  “ Walk this way. gents, began one of them, and there was a little scramble. V Large man pu.«hed his way through th*d crowd.    .  " None o’ that, we’ll have none of that. Quick, now. l>e off with 50U."  The gambler was about *to answer, but his partner pulled at his arm.  ” It’s Judge Bolte.” he whispered.  " Ch.ick it.” And the other .«tot»d not on the order of going.    ,  Then the singing fever broke,out. and a thousand voices Joined in the chorus;  Foley, you .ir* t|on* for -Uj. axatu-st it. 1 must 5ay.
