HOPE TO BLOCK CLEVELAND That the ex-Candidate Will Indorse'the New York Judge Is Not Con- sidered Likely. Summoned hastily by the supporters of Judge Alton B. Parker for the Democratic Presidential nomination, William Jennings Bryan arrived in York at 10 o'clock last night and registered at the Hoffman House, where also was ex-Senator David B. Hill, who is practically the manager of the Parker boom.- Until long after midnight Mr. Bryan was in consultation with Na- tional CommUteeman Xorman E. Mack of Buffalr, John B. Stanchfield of Elmira, who ran to.- Governor in JftOO, and who is one of the strongest of Hill-Parker men, and also with ex Senator Charles A. Towne.' Every effort was made to bring Bryan and Mr. Hill together, so as to Mr. Bryan to favor the candidacy of JuclgeU Parker .in order to head off the Cleveland x demonstration fostered by Charles F. Mur- phy in Tammany Hall. Either owing to the disinclination Bryan to meet his old-time enemy, or else owing to the lateness of the hour when Mr. Hill returned to the hotel from the theatre, there was no meeting between the two men last night, although it was declared .by a man who had been prominent in bringing the two to the same hotel at the same time that a meeting is certain to be held this morning. It is also asserted by one who wr.s intimately connected with the affair that Mr. Bryan hud absolutely declined to give any assurance, one way or another con- cerning the candidacy Judge Parker. Kx-Senator Hill arrived' in the city at midnight on Wednesday. At the Hoffman House all day yesterday he was in con- ference with such .stanch Parker men as Mr. Made and Mr. Stanchfield. A meeting also was arranged between ex-Senator Hill and ex-Senator Towne.. Early yesterday morning- Mr. Bryan came over from Wash- ington, en route to Xew Hav.en. Mr. Bryan and it will be found good enough for the party at St. Louis, I believe." CLEVELAND AND THE SOUTH. How about the sentiment in the South for Cleveland for he Was asked. Well." Said Mr. Bryan with a smile, I think there is as much favorable sentiment there for Cleveland as there has been at any time in the' last four years. But re- member, I do not intend to say 'anything now on the subject of Cleveland." How about Hearst? he was asked. "No, and-1 don't .intend-to say anything about Mr. Hearst either." Mr. Bryan re- plied. "I am not saying' anything at all about any candidates- at this time, But am simply talking principles, a.nd I find that j the Democratic voters find principles suf- ficient to discuss at this time. As to the platform to be adopted this year, I guess my prize money is safe in my keeping, for I think no Democratic paper which I named .will lay claim to it., especially in view of the proviso that they would have to wait a week after making the claim to see whether or not a Republican paper should claim the same platform. But it was a risky offer, for it was the price of five good Poland hogs or a.Durham calf, arid would have cut that much off from my farm." How big. is your farm? Mr. Bryan was asked. he said with a it is 5-lxty acres and plenty big enough to grow sug- gestions." Mr. Bryan professed surprise when in- formed that Senator Hill was also at the hotel. Is that so? he exclaimed. Well, all the papers now will have us patching up MR. IlLLMAN'S BOTTLE DRAWN BY MR. TOKEN Senator's Pocket Treasure Ex- posed During Session.

WASHINGTON, Feb. was a scene in the Senate this afternoon as usual as it was the older Sen- ators.' While Senator Tillman was engaged in a colloquy with Senator Bailey, Senator Warren strode a.cross the main aisle, In full view of the galleries and the Senate, and took from Senator Tillman's pocket a bottle, which he held up to the light, and then, removing the cork, smelted the contents, deftly replaced the bottle in the pocket whence1 it came, and resumed his seat. Senator Tillman waa sc-4 occupied with his speech that he did not observe what had taken -place, and went on with his remarks with greater vehemence until he observed smiles on the faces around him and heard a ripple11 of laughter passing through the jrallerlcs.

Both men greeted Mr. .Hill cordially, and they all talked together for sumo time, National Committeeman James Head -of Nashville, Ten-u.. also was at the hotel, and was with Mr. Hill for a con- ?''lernble period during the afternoon.

The lot is about' seventy-five feet wide, and. .runs through the entire block from Twenty-seventh to Twenty-eighth Street.

Residents .of the neighborhood say that of late they have been missing bottles of milk and packages of groceries .and other articles from their doorsteps, and that por- tions of fences and similar Inflammable ma- terial had also disappeared. They say, too, tfat men of strange and rough appearance have been soen lurking about the aban- doned lot early In the morning and again In -the evening. Mrs. Jennie Shea of 10 East Twenty- eighth Street, losing patience at continued thefts of her milk bottles and-other arti- cles, appeared at the West Thirtieth Street Station last ntght and complained to Sergt. Shibles. The Sergeant sent two policemen to rout out the cave dwellers, but they had taken warning and fled. The policemen say that they found that-the tramps had evi- dently secured picks and shovels some- where and had tunneled through the frozen earth all the way to Twenty-eighth Street. The top of the tunnel is about six feet below the surface level, and' the tunnel itself is about, a yard wide, and nowhere more than four or five feet high. In some places the policemen, found ashes of fires, empty cans, broken milk bottles, while at the Twenty-seventh' Street entrance a PEKING, Feb. advices re- ceived here from Nlu-Chwang confirm the .reports of the ill-treatment of Japanese refugees at the hands of the Russians while they were journeying through Manchuria, and assert, moreover, that some of the refugees were without doubt cruelly mur- dered.'
