For Judges of the City Court: JOHN H. McCarthy, EDWARD J. O’DWYBR. JOHN VINCENT McAVOY, THOMAS F. DONNELLY. ALEXANDER FINELITE. PETER SCHMUCKE. Without a hitch and with very little show of real enthusiasm on the part of the delegates, the Democratic County Convention put through a straight Democratic ticket last night at Tammany Hall, naming candidates for the place on the Supreme Court bench, three places on the beneh of the Court of General Sessions, six Judgeships of the City Court, and the Sheriff. Incidentally the convention, or rather the Tammany oi^nlsa-tlon Executive Committee, " stood pat *’ on th® platform adopted at the Buffalo converHon a year ago, and openly re-buk^ the Republican leaders for not fusiiig with the Democrats on the Judgeships,. showing plainly that Murphy end hit henchmen are bitter over being thrown down by the Woodruff-Parsons crowd. The star feature of the Tammany pro-erramme was the nomination of Tom Foley of the Bowery for Sheriff of the county. This choice morsel was kept till the last, and held the large crowd of delegates thai overflowed the main floor of the hall tfljrether until thè end. When Foley was put in nomination by P. J. Conway |>edlain broke loose, and the noise was. beard on Broadway, three blocks away. Ths cheering constlfuted one continual howl, the shrill tooting of police whistlés and the deeper, harsher note of the tin hom sounding through the general roar now and then- The band played valiantly. though not a note of music could be heard. With the nomination of Foley, which was seconded by Keyrin O’Connor, the con-ve«Uou ended, two-thirds of the crowd leaving even*before th© motion to adjourn was made. Before that the gathering had been utterly tame. Thjp slate was arranged by the nominating committee just before the convention was called to order by Thomas F. McAvoy. chairman of the Executive Committee of the organization. The Executive Committee met at 5 o’clock and appointed the Nominating Committee, which met and adjourned until 7. Then for an hour and a half the positions were juggled about. Swan, finally down as a nominee for the General Sessions bencn, was first put for-waxd as a candidate for City Court. Then Frank Garvan, the Assistant Dis--qrict Attorney^ was discussed as a pos-eibllltx. Ten minutes.before the convention met. however, the whole ticket was known, with the exception of the name Of John Vincent McAvoy, whose nomlna-.tlon constituted the one surprise, of the evening^ Mr. McAvoy is a son oi the Tammany leaner, Thomas F. McAvoy. John J. Delany, former Corporation Counsel, was appointed temporary Chairman and later made permanent Chairman. Throughout the proceedings he held a lypswritten programme m his hand and followed It closely. He first recognized Daniel F. Cohalan, who offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: Tke Democracy of New York County reaf-flrBie the platform adopted by th* Smie Con-vMtloa in Buffalo laet year. We approve, tiM» actkm ot our representatlves In the State Committee in attempting to make elimination of «Al pariieanebip In the choice of Judges a permanent feature of our Judicial system. The zefusal of l^ublican managers to join In a movement «o essential to the maintenance of imbllc oonOdence in the judiciary by refusing to laeet or confer with the Democratic committee we denounce os an unwmthy attempt to make party capital at the expefise of the highest interests of the State.

VIENNA, Oct. 9.—There Is much uneasiness over the condition of the Emperor. Francis Joseph’s illness Is not very serious at the present moment, but on account of his great age—he was ТГ years old in August—there is a great deal of apprehension.    ___ The Emperor coughed all last night. The doctors have forbidden him to speak. It Is reported that they fear pneumonia. Three prominent physicians were In consultation to-day. All they would say afterward was that the greatest care was necessary. The Emperor Is ^ Schbnbrunn Castle, suffering- from what Is described as bronchial catarrh. Yesterday the temperature of his Majesty was 101 degrees. This evening It was 102%. The Emperor’s condition became worse after the strain of the long audiences accorded yesterday to the Archduke Francis Ferdinand and the Hungarian Interior Minister, Count An-drassy. Dr. Wekerle, the Hungarian Premier, was to see the Kaiser to-day In view of the opening of. Parliament to-morrow, and the news that he has returned to Budapest without an audience has created the greatest uneasiness. An official bulletin Issued to-night says that his Majesty’s catarrh is better, but that his ¡coughing is worse and that he will be compelled to take better care of himself. The bulletin says the Emperor has not been able to receive the Ministers to-day, and Indicates that the programme for the approaching entertainment in Vienna of the King and Queen of Spain will have to be modified. STRIKeTn BUDAPEST TO-DAY, Everything to be Closed—150,000 Demonstrators Arrive. Bpeciai Cable to Thb Nisw York Timbs. VIENNA. Oct.‘9.—Remarkable preparations are being made for to-morrow’s universal suffrage demonstration in Budapest, in view of the strike of all wюrkmen for the day, and fears of collisions with the 150,000 demonstrators who have arrived in the Hungarian capital from 177 different towns of the kingdom. A Socialist organ to-day states that the milk depots will remain open till 10 À. M. and supply milk to the hospitals. Otherwise everything must be closed. Hotel visitors are In a plight, as all caf6s and restaurants will be closed owing to the waiters being on strike. No shops will open, for the tradesmen fear the interference of the Socialists. In view of the possibility of disorder between the strikers and " blacklegs,’’ the factories are guarded by soldiers, and the hospitals have prepared for the reception of casualties. Count Andrassy declared to-day that he purposed introducing at once in the Hungarian Parliament a bill providing universal suffrage for Hungary, and that consequently the demonstration planned by the Socialists would be like " breaking In an open door.” RAOIUMEFFftCES BIRTHMARKS Discovery Causes Seneetion Among Parle Doctors—Method Painless. Special Cable to Thb Nbw York Times. PARIS, Oct. 9.—Two of the foremost physicians of Paris, Drs. Wickham and Degrals, have created a sensation at the Academy of Mediotoe by a report on their discovery of fT method of removing birthmarks by the action of radium. Such marks have hitherto been believed to be Indelible. The new method has proved equally successful in the cases of adults and children. The marks are effaced by the simple application of a plane surface covered with vamish containing radium. The action is regulated by the length and frequency of the applications. A series of watercolors exhibited at the Academy showed the gradual dls-appearanoe of birthxMui» subjected to the treatment until not the slightest trace of the disflgurerment remained. The applications are absolutely painless. The treatment may be applied to an Infant during sleep. The doctors add that the birthmarks most easily cured are those w hich are^ most hifl^y colored.

Mrs. Vanderbilt has decided to postpone her daughter’s Wedding until after the usual time for the departure of the Summer resldeiits from Newport. The guests will make special trips to Newport, and The Breakers, Oaklai^d Farm, and Sandy Point Farm, as well as some of the fashionable boarding houses, wUl be kept open for the entertainment of the visitors. .This will follow the precedent of the marriages of Alfred G. Vanderbilt to Miss Elsie French and of Reginald v<i \ itIXClGr“' Wit to Miss Kathleen Neilson, both of which were in Newport, out of tfi^ regular season.    ' For both of these weddings the V*an-derbllt reafdences were opened for the reception of guests, but In the case of the marriage of Miss Vanderbilt The Breakers will be kept open throughout the Autumn, until the ceremony is performed, the Vanderbilts spending Thanksgiving here.

Vanderbilt were again invaded to-day and searched by officers with bloodhounds,* following an attempt made at an early hour this morning to rob Blltrtnore Village, by chloro-fomlng the residents.

S., Oct. 9.—The average speed of the Lusitania was 24.32 knots for the first twelve hours of the day, with a beam swell and light airs prevailing. For the second twelve hours a fresh northwest wind was encountered, with a beam sea. 9 o’clock to-night the Lusitania is in ude 47 degrees north and longitude 45.20 degrees west, and is going at the rate of twenty-five knots an hour. The weather is clear and the sea is smooth. The Cunard Line officials In New York received two dispatches- from Capt. J. C. Watt of the Lusitania yesterday which showed that the liner was smashing all records. The first one received early In the morning stated that the Lusitania had made 608 miles in the twenty-four houYs ending Tuesday noon at an average speed of 24.32 knots. The second dispatch, received yesterday afternoon from the Captain, stated that she was 924 miles east of Sandy Hook at 10 A. M. yesterday, and had made an avers^e qpeed of 24.76 knots for the past twenty-two hours, which would give her a run of 617 miles for the twenty-four hours ending at *ioon yesterday. Vernon H. Brown, general manager and agent of the Cunard Line in America, did not appear at all surprised to hear that the Lusitania had made this run yesterday, and said that she had not been driven. " I cannot make out," said Mr. Brown, " where all the reports come from that the I«usifania is being driven to make a record this trip. It would-be ridiculous to try and make a record with a steamer on her second voyage, liie Lusitania is just jogging along now and will reach Sandy Hook, I suppose, about one hour before ^yligtit Friday morning. "When the Cunard offclals feel the time Is ripe, then you will see what the Lusitania can really do in the way of speed. The tide Is early on the morning qf the 11th, and sIm ought to be up to her pier about 9 o’clock In the mornii«."

LONDON, Oct. 10.—The Cunard Steamship Company has issued an official notice calling attenfion to the record run of the Lusitania on her present trip between Liverpdt#and New York, «17 ngu-tlcal miles in a nanttcal day, and great satisfaction with this achievement Is expressed in shipping clr^lee.    '    - Commenting on this record the newspapers to-day declare that Great Britain to now likely to' regain the blue ribbon of the Atlantic fqom Germany.

STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 9.—Almost totally blind from burns In the eyes received by an explosion of gas Indaie automobile, Dr. George Sherrill of this city drove his car from Collender’s Point to his house here to-night, a distance of three miles. He is under, treatment by Dr. Dean Foster, an eye specialist, who says the eyesight will be preserved. There was a leakage In the gas generator of the motor car, and the car did not run well. Dr. ShWlll lighted a match to find out the trouble. There occurred an explosion and a tongue of flame flashed into his face, fris face was badly burned, both eyes suffering. Dr. Sherrill insisted on driving home after the damage was repaired. The drive probably was the most torturous one he ever took. In the darkness he could just make out objects, but when light struck his eyes he had to stop the cflir and rest. He was a long time making the journey, and it was only by a remarkable dle>Iay of nerve that he stood the strain. DR. BUCKFORD HURTBŸ AUTO Episcopal Delegate Knocked Down by Robert C.

Edward Kelly of 431 West Thirty-fifth Street Was injured by an auto in front of the Waldorf-Astoria ï^el last night. Two versions of the accident were given, one by the-police of the West Thirtieth Street Station, and the other by men who carried Kelly to Bellevue I^ospltal suffering from orulaes and Internal injuries. The police said Kelly was Yk^ding on the running board of an automobile owned by Elbert H. Gary of the United States Steel Coiporation, who Uvea at the Waldorf, and drivén by Joaeph Ryan of 124 West Ilfty-olghth Street. The machine, the police say, suddenly started, and Kelly was thrown beneath the wheels. Friends who picked up ifae injured man before the police arrived carried him off in a cab, and up to a late hour last night the police did not ' know Kefiy was in Bellevue.    .    ,    — Kelly was removed in a cab owned by.

Foreign exchange rates moved in such fashion that actual shipments were less than qne-six-teenth of a point away, and this small margin may, of course, be overcome at any moment. Exchange rates have been steadily rising for several days. This puzzled banking houses so much that yesterday one institution which has in the past participated in export:^ to Paris cabled its correspondent In th& c city to know the attitude of the Bank of France. Word came back that the French bank was again willing to pay interest on gold In transit. This means, of course, that the bank, which has been coptesting with the Bank of England for all the gold laid down from South Africa for seveml weeks, is still anxious to build up Its resources and to do so is willing to take gold from this country in spite of the unsettled money and business' conditions now prevailing here. Sentiment played no part In the bank’s programme, according to a member of this banking house, who added: “ Our debts’ in France are now maturing dally in considerable volume, and that country wants payment in money. Con-ditloiiB there are close and bankers are unwilling to extend obligations even at higher interest rates, so that a rise in money here will prove of no help. New York City revenue warrants placed In France-some time ago are toming due and payment is demanded. " In order to' make such payments bapkers have either to buy exchange or if exchange cannot be obtained to pay In gold. Bills of exchange are exceed-inkly scarce, as the rise of the last few days shows, the reasons for this scarcity being the refusal of Europe to takq our finance bills this Fall and the failure of cotton and other commodities to move toward Europe In sufficient volume to provide biUS/ W© were--4ses*«vday practically at -the point wherq remittances might have been made moré cheaply in gold than In exchange, but our bankers are aware of the unsettlement which gold exports might cause, and are going to pay. a little more for exchange if they can thus save shipping gold. "As a matter of business, however, no banker can afford to pay too much In this fashion for exchange, and unless bills come forward In considerable volume and very quickly there sterns to be nothing In sight but gold remittances to Paris. The Bank of France plainly wants such remittances, and it may be able to influence them.’’ WOMAN DROWNED IN SOUND. Believed to be Grace Albln—Carried a Matrrmontal Advertisement. Special to The New Yo*-k Times. STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 9.—The body of a'good-looklng woman about 25 years old, who Is believed to be Grace Albin, was washed ashore at Shlppan Point late last night- The riace and back were bruised probably by coming in contact with stones.“" The body was dressed in a black skirt and white shirtwaist. A man’s coat was over the shirtwaist. The body had been in the water about thirty hours and on it was found the card of Capt. D. W. Cobb, Jr., of Volunteers of America, No. 10 Washington street. New London, Conn. On the back of this card was written. Grace Albin, and the address was the same. The description,^ of Grace Albih> tallies with that of. the drowned woman. Tvritten on a flyleaf of a Prayer Book found on the dead woman was the name Of Miss Albin of 34 Itonk Street, New London. A newspaper Clipping of a matrimonial advertisement was also found on her. The woman described In the ad-ventisement was probably the dead woman.    * There was a'heavy storm in the Sound Tuesday morning, and a woman was lost when the coal barge Pottsvilie went down off Captain’s Island. Two men, who were with her, were saved by the crew of the towboat and were landed at Port-chester. There they said they did not know the name of the woman who was drowned. They went to New York, and their names were not learned. NEW LONDON, Conn., Oct. 0.—Grace Albin was known here as the wife' of Arthur Angelí. She had not lived with her husband for many months, having spent most of her time while there with her- mother at the Bank Street address.

An Ideal Time to Get a Bear, Louisiana Residents Say. * O’HARA SWITCH, near Stamboul, Ito., Oçtî 9.—Not since early morning nave any tidings been received from the Presto dent’s hunting camp, and that was confined to a mere statement that preparations had been ms.de for a busy <tsy. The best local judges of the ccmditlons express their opinion that the- day must have been one of activity. If not of results. The rain had left a faultless sky and the temperature was all that could be desired, neither too hot nor too cool. These circumstances taken with the softened conditlcm of the ground, the residents say, should make It possible for a party who go well equipped to get a bear if there Is one in the Bayou Tensas. Official business is so quiet that Secretary Latta found It possible to close the temporary White House at the Shields residence for the afternoon and go out for a pecan hunt. DR.
