NO. THEY CHEER FOR PLATT. -4', HARMONY AGAIN REIGNS AMONG NEW YORK REPUBLICANS. Tbe E.x-Scnator to Mr, Depew's Two-Thlnls 1'roposltioii and Says He Is Anxious to Have the World's Fair Held in New Protest Meeting Ends Happily. NEW YORK, Feb. Cooper Union hall was densely crowded last night and hun- dreds of people were unable to gain admis- sion. The occasion of the throng was a mass meeting to protest against legislative delay in passing the world's fair bill. Among the prominent persons on the platform were Warner Miller, C. M. Depew, John H. Starin, Ambrose Snow, Joseph C. Hendrix, A. M. Tenney, James W. Tappan and John Foord. Mr. Starin presided and called upon Mr. Foord, as secretary, to read a series of reso- lutions, which set forth that the original bill sent to Albany was drawn up by both Demo- crats and Republicans; that it was a purely business, non-partisan measure designed for the benefit of all the people; that this non- political character of the enterprise must be maintained, or congress will not sanction the selection of New York as the site for the fair; that the commission named in the bill is non- partisan; that the committees now in charge, which have been criticised as Democratic cease to control the project after the com- mission takes charge, and that there is no reason for dragging politics into the matter in any way. The resolutions were unanimously adopted and the audience gave three cheers. Elihu Root then read a letter from Senator Evarts sympathizing with the objects of the meeting. Edward Conklin read resolutions adopted at a meeting of the Central Labor Union, in accord with the sentiments ex- pressed in the foregoing resolutions. Hon. Warner Miller then made a speech, saying he had thought for thirty years that he was a Republican, but had suddenly found that he was regarded by some as a Tammany Demo- crat, because he was in favor of the world's fair bill. He found consolation in the fact that he had been read out of the party in good of C. M. Depew, Elihu Root, C. N. Bliss, S. V. R. Cruger and others. [Applause.] Mr. Miller went on to deplore the cry of partisanship that had been raised against the bill. Mr. Miller further said that the committee on legislation was composed of seventeen Re- publicans and eight Democrats, and the sub- committee thereof, which drew up the bill, was composed of two and Root, and one Democrat, Mr. Whitney, so that if the bill was a Tammany plot De- pew and Root were the traitors. [Applause.] MK. DEPEW WAXES WITTY'. Mr. Depew also spoke, saying that if Columbus had known what trouble this mat- ter was going to cause he never would have discovered America, [Applause and laugh- ter.] Mr. Depew appreciated his peril in coming here without receiving permission from the new guardian of the Republican party of New York state, Hon. W. B. Chandler of New Hampshire. He went on to say that everybody in St. Louis and ocrats, Republicans, Mugwumps, Anarch- ists and on this one point of wanting the fair. It was reserved for New Yorkers to leave Washington and call each other bad names at home. Every man is entitled to his opinion, without being charged with party bias. A very eminent and able Republican leader, with his friends, thinks that a fair in York in 1892 be- cause of the of the city govern- ment bcin.g; in the of the Democracy, would lead tr- a ;jf the vast crowd of visitors voting in the pi-esi- dential election. 1. on the contrary, believe that the great prosperity which would follow all over the country from the fair, would re- dound to the credit of a national administra- tion under whose auspices it was held, the same as the fair of 1S70 unquestionably did. Each of us is entitled to a fair consideration of our opinions without cutting each others' throats. Mr. Depew went on to deny that ths com- mission proposed is a partisan one. Other speeches of similar import followed. Finally John F. Plumer appeared on the platform and announced that if Mr. Depew's "two-thirds" proposal or compromise was in- dorsed by the meeting, Mr. Platt would agree to it. He said Mr. Platt had sent for him and told him he was nnxious to have the fair in Kew York city and that if the "two- thirds" proposal v. as indorsed there was no doubt ould U- carried JJi the legislature. Mr. r.iade a few remarks, saying this that the critici-ins on Mr. Platt's motives n urjust.

ALBANY, Feb. joint railroad com- mittee gave a final hearing in the matter of rapid transit for New York city yesterday. Corporation Counsel Bcekman said that his main opposition to the Fassett bill was that it allowed the commissioners to change their plans after they had been adopted. He con- sidered that it was a decidedly dangerous gift of power for the commission to hold. Mr. Julian Davies said that he objected to the mayor's bill because it gave no permission to the present elevated roads to develop their system. The Fassett bill allows, and very wisely, the proper roads to add a third track. Infanswer'te- MTV 'Beekman's criticism that the bill allowed no extra compensation to the city for extending the operations of the pres- ent he said that compensation was properly provided for. Mr. W. G. Trull of the surf ace roads said that he approved the mayor's bill, but he had also some amendments which be would offer later to Mr. Fassett's bill. Mr. Melville C. Smith said that an arcade road was the only kind of a road that would give satisfaction. He was in favor of an un- derground arcade railroad. Senator Ives said that his bill, he thought, covered everything, but if the committee did not like it he hoped that they would amend it and not kill it altogether. FROM WASHINGTON.

ALBANY, Feb. assembly commit- tee on canals gave a hearing upon the bill es- tablishing state grain elevators yesterday. Capt. Depuy of the Canal Men's League, spoke in favor of the approriation, and said that by the state taking charge and owning their own elevators and regulating the charges, they would keep the canals from going into dissolution and the canal men from being driven to the wall by the railroad companies. The hearing was then adjourned. The committee agreed to report Mr. Guen- ther's bill, appropriatmg for payment of claims for a bridge over the canal at Buf- falo. _________________ THE FRENCH IN CANADA. Sir Jolin .HaoDonald Their Shall Have Fair Piny. OTTAWA, Feb. the house of commons the debate on the dual language question was resumed. Wilfred Laurier, leader of the op- position, made a long and brilliant speech. He defended the French population of Can- ada and emphatically asserted he was not in sympathy with his countrymen who were trying to form a separate and new French nation on the banks of the St. Lawrence. He spoke about the part the Protestant prov- ince of Ontario was taking in the race and religious war of Canada. He referred to it as over zealous and meddlesome and charged it with wishing to drive the French out of the country at the point of the bayonet. Sir John ilacDonald spoke briefly. He ex- plained the position of the government on this question. The conservative party, he paid, always sr.pported the French popula- tion, pnd were not going back on them now. Canada should not be looked upon as a con- quered country. The people were all British subjects, and a.; such the French would not be tyrannized over, but woidd receive Brit- ish fair play at the hands of the government. A larg, number of other speakers followed until a late hour, when the house sdjo irne-1.

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 19. The Journal's Pierre. S. D.. special says: ''The house has passed a joint resolution admitting that des- titution exists in many parts of the state, and that the farmers must be furnished with seed wheat by public and private subscrip- tion. The resolution declares that under the state constitution the state and county are powerless to render aid and that all assist- ance must coiae from outside sources. The whole matter is placed in the hands of Gov- 1 ernor Mellett. who will appeal to the East for 1 aid. This action of the house is regarded as 1 a complete indorsement of Governor Mel- lette's begging errand. It will doubtless pass 1 the senate. _________________ i To Errlude i WASHINGTON, Ingalls introduced in the senate a bill to amend the interstate commerce law by adding a section providing that it t-hall lie nil for any person to into aivthT '-t.i'e or t de- clares it rnlawful fr.r any to carry r.nv intosi'-ating into anj- state or where tb" laws of the state forbid.

Dalton McCarthy's Speech Creates a Ter- rific John Macdonald Threat- ens a Dissolution of is Feared That Serious Hiotlng and Per- haps Civil War May Take Place. OTTAWA. Feb. excitement over the French question in the federal parliament is more intense than ever. before in the history of Canada have the political lead- ers been in such a dilemma. Tbe racial feel- ing roused by Dalton McCarthy's crusade has leaped the bounds of party lines and now runs rampant with an intensity which presages future civil war. Every day the animosity between the English and French speaking members is increasing until now almost every speech on the question is a series of interruptions. Sir John Macdonald, in his speech last evening, said the government were commit- ted to vote for Davin's amendment, leaving the matter of dual in the North- west to the legislative assembly there to de- cide. This announcement was fiercely de- nounced by the French Conservatives who, to a man, will vote against the amendment on the ground that its adoption would mean that parliament recognized the crusade against the French. Sir John Macdonald finding his efforts to whip the French element of the party into line bad most utterly failed and knowing that to grant the demands of the French would raise a storm of indignation in On- tario, has stated that unless the French ac- cept Davin's amendment he will dissolve par- liament and appeal to the country on the question, depending on the Protestant vote for re-election. It is thought, however, that this threat is made simply to make the Frenchmen come to terms. In a speech last evening Hon. J. A. Chap- leau characterized McCarthy as a firebrand and a demagogue. In his speech subsequently McCarthy denounced such language as un- parliamentary and the result of bigotry. McCarthy's speech was exceedingly bitter and raised a perfect storm of indignation among the French members, who hissed, howled and interrupted with great energy during almost the entire speech.

Depew and ex- Senator Thomas C. Platt will also attend the convention. President Harrison has sent a letter to Hon. John M. Thurston, president of the league, in which he says: "Suchorganizations are wholesome and desirable, not only from a party, but from a public standpoint. They interest the young men in public affairs and compact and organize the interest thus ex- cited into controlling political forcas. The party to which you belong has never suffered by an intelligent discussion of its history or its principle, and I am sure your organiza- tion will continue to furnish courageous and well apnoiiit'rd champions wherever the lists af debate are opened. "I doubt'nol that you will be cordially re- ceived by the people of Nashville, and beg to express the hope that your meeting may b9 both successful and pleasant." A CRONIN SUSPECT Arrested in St. Louis He Disclaims All Connection with the Murder. ST. Louis. Feb. Thomas of Chicago and Detectives Fries and Seigier of this city arrested a man who is suspected of being concerned in the murder of Dr. Cronin. It is not known in what part of the city the man was arrested, as all information is sup- pressed by the police authorities. The man arrested is not a citizen of St. Louis, but is a stranger, who has been in the habit of visiting here at intervals. Chief Huebler intimates that the arrest will cause a sensation if the man provea the person he is suspected to be. Tbe man was interviewed in his cell by a reporter. He said: name is John B. Kelly. I had nothing to do with the murder of Dr. Cronin. I ad- mitted to the chief of police, however, that I am the parly the Chicago police are looking for. It is a case of mistaken identity. I first visited Chicago Feb. 15, 1889. Ilett there the latter part of June, the same year. I have never belonged to the Clan-na-Gael or other Irish organizations. I know none of the people accused of murdering Dr. Cronin. "I came to St. Louis Aug. 15 last and have boarded at the People's house, corner of Fourth and Lucas avenues ever since." The prisoner appeared ill at ease and tried to evade all direct questions. He denied knowing Alexander Sullivan. He stated that he was a clerk but refused to say where he had been employed. Detective Thomas of Chicago stated that Kelly is believed to be "Smith" who drove Dr. Cronin to the Carlson. cottage on the night of May 4 last. The proprietor of the People's house corroborates Kelley's story as to his boarding there since Aug. 15. A Drmoci-at K!
